I spent one year living in Hong Kong 7 years ago. As I returned early this month for my best friend's wedding, I reflected on the comparison between my past living in Hong Kong and current life situation in Jakarta.
Of many things I discovered while trying to find comfort, there was this quirky video clip on life advices, but strongly on sunscreen ;)
It was an honour for me to be part of the first Service Design Hong Kong conference, where I could share a piece of my mind while learning from a cool bunch of inspiring people. The following is my recap of Day 1 sessions.
On September 29th, 2016, I went to Service Design Hong Kong to speak about applying service design to domestic help — an informal kind of service that is often taken for granted, yet it deals with the most beloved in our life: family and home.
A few days ago I was stranded around Mal Ambasador and found it hard to catch a ride home. I tried Gojek and Grab to no success and ended up waiting an hour before finally getting a car ride.
The next day, I checked my email and found an email from Grab granting me a free ride. Hmmm that's not so bad. I put it at the back of my head until the next time I need to catch a bike ride, which turned out to be today.
It started when Nurse Ririn visited us for home care, 3 days after Ithaka's birth. She pointed out things to observe, to make sure the baby is taking in enough milk and prevent jaundice. Mentioned were soft spot on the forehead, skin colour and reaction to light tapping, and frequency of pee and poop. She asked how many times the baby peed the day before. I couldn't tell.
It was a lazy Friday evening and I got bored. I looked around my room to find something new to do. I ended up experimenting with products I’ve never used before: pregnancy test packs. The 3 products have the same function, but each with a distinctive form and different way of using. For easier reference, I name them The Paper, The Stick, and The Well.
