Creative Surge: IDEAS: The Rempah festival story
When Peter Gan told me about his idea for a festival celebrating nationhood, I thought he had finally lost his marbles. We met on 10 Aug, the festival was planned for Malaysia Day 16 Sept, slightly over a month away.

“Do you have any sponsors?” I asked. “No, we won’t need sponsors.”

Wasn’t quite the answer I was expecting but maybe the man has a plan. “Who’s your target audience?” “This is something so new and so experimental: We’ll find out on that day.” “Well, do you have any big names as a draw?” “We’ll find one.” At this point, any sane person would have stood up, shook hands and hurried out of the room.

Everyone’s Complain Department: Let Go
The more senior you become, the more you feel accountable for things. From future-proofing your agency to the never perfect processes that drive people insane, from the quality of work to the reputation of your agency, from the progress and growth of people to that idiot who never refills the ice-tray when it’s empty. Well, you want to solve everything and feel like crap when you fail.

So you walk around with a stupid face that says – don’t disturb me with your petty concerns, can’t you see I’ve got all these important things to solve? Very good, Mr ECD feller, well done. I’m sure you’ve inspired everyone into action. Limpeh give you one clap.
