“Progressive is building on the past while thinking about the future. And I think that’s what we all should think about.” Wise words coming from Faiq Airudin, a 28 year old that shoots ‘still’ and ‘video’ who believes there is always time to grow. When we asked him to look into his crystal ball to share some insight on what he thinks the creative arts industry, film and photography in Brunei would be like in the next twenty to thirty years – he answered graciously; he believes in 2035, we as Bruneians will have a greater sense of value for each other in terms of an artist’s craft whether it’s in design, fashion or pottery because highly skilled people will be more readily available; we’ll know how to better incorporate all these things into our community and will be able to recognise their ingenuity as an integral cog that makes life that much easier…if you wanna hear more from him come pick up a copy of our latest Progresif Issue, which dives into the world of ‘creativity’ and why it’s an important part of life @faiqairudin#thatsprogresif#progresifmagazine
Last night was my first real hug to my mom when we all greeted her happy birthday at midnight. The previous one when I was still a teenager. I don’t know the feeling but I always wanted to hug my mother. – Ranoadidas http://rano360.com/2017/04/08/a-sons-love/
two posts over last week caught my eye. an instagram post by kurapak and a long post by Ranoadidas. it was from two veterans (long serving members) of the blogging community and what interested me was how their individual stories felt anachronistic to the type of content they usually provide.
