Arno Blender


Written on 3:16:00 AM by Oakie Chiraskamin

Recently, i often use blender for making smoothies for my friends. I was happy with my blender until i found this ad. The ad lovingly communicates the product benefit clearly. In my deep mind, i think they should do better execution. (the ad from ads of the world website) Copy : Arno Easy-Serve System, A faster way out. (by Publicis Brazil)

It's almost 01.00am here and i was so sleepy in front of the screen. Then I got an email from Adcenter telling me very very good news that i was accepted to the Communications Strategy program this fall. What a great news! I was really excited. Finally, i made it. Thanks Michael K., Johanna, Nien L, Kevin R., and my supporters for being with me and giving me encouragement.

Now, i can sleep tight :)

I love cities


Written on 12:57:00 PM by Oakie Chiraskamin

For cities lovers like me, I should mention this website. It consists of many panorama photos from many countries in Europe and US. I really enjoy viewing them many times and believe that they truly enhance my viewpoint to this world.

Kids love Anpanman


Written on 2:58:00 AM by Oakie Chiraskamin

This noon my little cousins visited me. They are just 7 and 9 years old and asked me to turn on Spark cable channel, which is like cartoon network but more Japanese animations. When i switched the channel to the one they wanted, they suddenly were quiet and paid all concentration they had to the Japanese anime, called Anpanman (have you heard?). I haven't seen this Japanese anime for many many years since i am in love with Pokemon characters.

Anpanman anime is good for kids, without violence, without rude language and with colorful and cute characters. The best moment for me is when Anpanman severs a small piece(s) of his head (his whole head is stuffed-bean bread) and shares his friends to eat when they are hungry. I hope my cousins were back home with sharing attitude. I am so happy posting about this.

Hello Readers,
Just came back from Samed Island yesterday. See the photos here at my Flickr. I learn more to love beach, people, sea, and food. Almost 15 hours a day that my feet touched on sand and sea. I love it.

Collagen Formation


Written on 12:42:00 PM by Oakie Chiraskamin

When people gets older, a collagen production gets lower which leads to a droopy or flabby skin. Some believe that adding collagen into a body will regain the firmness of the skin. And there are 2 ways in adding collagen - injecting and eating. The collagen has been aware by Thai consumers for 3-4 years. At that time, we have been tricked from Skincare products by adding collagen ingredient which is beauty related.

Recently, the parade of collagen attacks us. Wherever i go, i see the collagen in orange juice, soy milk, sport drink, milk, and supplement. I am quite sick of it. Is it rare to find the trustworthy and genuine brand in Thailand, huh?

Here is an example from Foremost

DIY Coke ad


Written on 9:41:00 AM by Oakie Chiraskamin

I would like to share one of many things i did for my Adcenter application. It's myself-generated ad for Coke - The Coke side of life campaign. It shows my perspective on Consumer-Generated Content/Media/Ad and attention i gave to the ad industry's movements.

The main reason of this post is to invite you guys to do yourself Coke ad. You may create it by eg. photoshop, drawing, sewing, cut and paste.... Let's share it. You can see my example below.
Mine is not so good because of no retouching, and poor lighting. You can do it better than i did.
In case you want to do it as a viral, pls spread it out.

Cuddle Party


Written on 2:12:00 AM by Oakie Chiraskamin

While many people rejoicing in digital world and easily getting in touch via MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Flickr, and etc.. you name it. These things create another form of relationship among friends, family, colleagues, and people. It's like we got 2 worlds in living - offline and online.

We have been bombarded by the happenings or events in online world while in offline world, there is an Cuddle party, a workshop/social-event that gives adults an opportunity to "give and receive welcomed affectionate touch in a no-expectation, friendly setting, according to your needs, desires, interests, and boundries." It is started from NY then spreading to Washington, Alabama, Boston, LA, San francisco, even in London and Sydney. Learning about intimacy, welcomed touch, and affection with some rules on puppy pile. I have no idea about how would i feel towards this event but it's kind of something that you will never get in online world besides touching a keyboard and an optical mouse.I spotted this cuddle party when i was watching CSI:New York DVD last night.
