Meet Mati

Hi there! Mati here.

My name comes from the Sanskrit word that could mean one of three things: thought, intellect, or advice. For the record though: I picked out the name even before I knew what it means. I don’t speak nor write Sanskrit but my guess is it depends on the context. I found out that the word also exists in other languages–and with interesting definitions. To the Greeks, it means “eye”. To Indonesians, it’s “death”. There’s a Native American tribe which uses it to refer to gourd but I don’t know which tribe it is.

I’m deemed weird when it comes to my choice of books and music, more so when it comes to food. My friends would easily vouch for that! I’ll spare you the details here. Though I do welcome you to ask.

You’re even more welcome to comment!

  1. Your Invitation to the Book Launching

    Press Release
    For Immediate Dissemination

    Launching the Power of Balance

    Manila, Philippines 02 August 2012 – The highly acclaimed Power of Balance will be launched together with an open art exhibit reflecting the book’s theme on 18 August 2012, 8-p.m. at the Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery 7274 Collective Malugay st. Makati City.

    People work so hard in trying to achieve specific goals and aims in their life that they forget the purpose of their existence and often get out of balance.

    These imbalances in life more often than not affect not only one aspect of our lives but, in fact have a knock on effect which affects the rest of our life. The “Power of Balance” (published by Primoris Enterprise) by Clint Mendoza offers insights and advice related to this dilemma.

    Power of Balance was written to enlighten people on the precariousness of life and to help them achieve a balanced lifestyle. It teaches new principles and concepts which can help change their perspective of work and life in general. The Power of Balance further persuades us to identify our “personal beliefs” and aids us in making the right daily choices. Our success (or failure) is often the compounded results of our daily choices in life. It endeavours to empower us with a balanced self which we eventually need to expand outwards thereby harnessing the unlimited power of balance.

    Author Clint Mendoza will unleash his Power of Balance on 18 August at 8-p.m. at the Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery 7274 Collective Malugay st. Makati City. The launching will also feature art works by world-class artists specially commissioned to reflect the book’s concept. Advance release copies of the book will also be available on the event. Admission is free.
