Malang : Kota Wisata Mesin Waktu

Sebuah liputan menarik untuk melestarikan kesejukan Malang.

Katastrofe

Kota Malang, pada tahun 70an adalah kota persinggahan. Barangkali pada jaman itu Kota Malang masih berhawa sejuk, jadi orang-orang memilih singgah di Kota Malang sebelum melanjutkan perjalanan.

The lethargy leads to another state: rebellion. Rebellion is about casting aside the old. It’s message is one of momentum, of change.

Which is good, but what comes beyond the rebellion?

If we replace inertia with new process, it’s just the same old story under a new name. The secret in the Social Age is agility: rebellion upon rebellion, never allowing the lethargy to take hold.

Enable uninhibited curiosity, enable agility.
