New Year

Seharusnya saya belajar dari tadi.

Tes bahasa asing udah tinggal menghitung hari, bukan minggu lagi.
Harusnya saya tetap melanjutkan schedule awal, belajar lima chapter di Minna No Nihonggo, demi menyiapkan kata kata untuk free call via Line dengan teman di Jepang. Tapi..mungkin cerita bergambar manusia-manusia bertopeng ABO itu benar, karena salah satu diantara mereka dengan keahlian menunda pekerjaan dan terlambat dalam setiap janji (yang tidak terlalu membuatnya tertarik) adalah saya.

Siang ini, saya dengan mudahnya ter-distract oleh blogger kece yang memantik keinginan menulis saya. Entah tulisan ini akan berakhir di publish atau di draft bersama setumpuk tulisan lainnya karena tidak lolos tahap editing feeling dan image, uhum.

Karena saat membaca ini  saya teringat beratus-ratus kegagalan saya di bangku kuliah. Tiga tahun gagal segala macam kompetisi , sementara orang orang disekitar saya udah glowing dengan foto foto mereka bersanding bersama piala atau iconic place di luar negri. Ternyata semuanya karena Allah menyuruh saya bersabar, untuk satu moment di awal tahun 2012, untuk dua lomba yang saya impikan, untuk banyak pesawat dan hotel gratis, untuk senyum yang benar benar sampai ke mata tidak hanya di bibir saja.
Dan yang paling menohok dari tulisan itu adalah selisih 0.0.. untuk mendudukkan orang tua di kursi cumlaude, saya pikir cuma saya dan tiga orang temen sekelas lainnya yang peluk pelukan dengan mata mbrambang di depan ruang pengajaran setelah nerima selembar kertas bertuliskan IPK akhir. Ternyata, si mas penulis blog ini juga mengalami nasib yang sama, huahahaha.

Karena saat membaca ini saya sangat merasa jleb jleb. Awalnya saya tertarik karena judul nya, anti-mainstream. Yeah, I am the one who like cross current thingy. Apa yang saya sukai kadang bagi orang lain itu aneh, dan saya gampang memutuskan ga suka sama sesuatu karena terlalu mainstream. Eh, ternyata isinya…lebih dari yang saya ekspektasikan. It’s the whole things I’ve been thinking so hard this years.


“Life could be simple but you never fail To complicate it every single time”
-Blame it on the girl-


2014 bakalan dateng 8 jam lagi, resolusi lama yang waktu itu saya sebutin di kamar diantara permainan truth and dare sama temen temen kuliah yang stay over di rumah sudah tercapai.

Alhamdulillah saya keluar negeri lagi tahun ini.

Resolusi tahun depan sudah terpikirkan setelah hampir setahun penuh saya benar benar kehilangan keinginan dan mimpi. I was lost my way tapi saya juga belajar banyak hal.

Semuanya hanya membutuhkan waktu. Semua mimpi mimpi kita memiliki waktu masing masing untuk terwujud, semua pertanyaan kita akan terjawab pada waktunya, Tuhan telah menyiapkan waktunya.

See you soon (my dreams in) 2014

Cast Away On The Moon

Lesson from CAOTM...



No matter how hard, we will survive, we will learn to survive




Hapiness from new small things



We dont realize common things is very precious, until we lose it


Become freaks in the glistening crowd is interesting, world stare to us, world stare weird to us, but we dont care. Because we are happy, and enough.

Tears And Rain


Just found this song over a recommendation from some where.

James Blunt sung it good enough to stab a heart.



How I wish I could surrender my soul;
Shed the clothes that become my skin;
See the liar that burns within my needing.
How I wish I'd chosen darkness from cold.
How I wish I had screamed out loud,
Instead I've found no meaning.

I guess it's time I run far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
It's more than just words:
 it's just tears and rain.

How I wish I could walk through the doors of my mind;
Hold memory close at hand,
Help me understand the years.
How I wish I could choose between Heaven and Hell.
How I wish I would save my soul.
I'm so cold from fear.

I guess it's time I run far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
Hides my true shape, like Dorian Gray.
I've heard what they say, but I'm not here for trouble.
Far, far away; find comfort in pain.
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain.

Tears and Rain.

Tears and Rain.

Far, far away; find comfort in pain,
All pleasure's the same: it just keeps me from trouble.
It's more than just words: it's just tears and rain.


Ps: Know Dorian Gray, aren't you? The one that I wrote up in the recommended movie category. He hide his true self in a painting, so he can't be killed.

Asian Next Top Model

I recently like this program. Even it already ended like long time ago, but i just found it in youtube. One episode lead to another, and finally i'm tracking all the way its episodes history like a stalker. But its really cool. I love the art in the photograph session. The unique clothes, competition atmosphere, etc.



Better be ready for your photo op
Step in the light for your perfect close up
Be superficial, it's your one shot
Unleash the diva deep inside

-Glam-


Awesome fierce Jee and the tatoosome Rachel in this one



Kate face is full of wind and freedom

Low Budget Backpacker Thailand

Finally....
After long time planning of low budget backpacker to feel the incridible experience, we reached Thailand on August.

Breathtaking

We wish to travel somewhere this year, and its become a target after long time just stuck in a pile of dream. Because the reason of time and price, yesterday we chose Thailand. I have the itinerary sample for four days and three nights for the idea what to visit if you guys need it.


1st Day

10:25 am - Landing Time
Arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport, finished the imigration, and looking for simcard with Thai number, after that we went to grab Taxi at the Taxi counter. I love Suvarnabhumi setting, when we landed we could saw the airport highway beside us, that was the first time I be in the airport where I could saw car and train runway along the landing way.

It took around 1 hour to the town. Be careful with the taxi driver. Mine was did a fraud to us, he didn't turn the meter on, we didn't realize it until halfway, and he said it will cost us 450 Baht  because he paid the toll, but luckily, on the destination place, My friend's uncle who will paid it for us understand the usual cost, because he have been forth back to airport like hundred time. So he snapped the driver, and threat to write the taxi serial number and report the driver for what he did. The cost was reduced to its normal price, which is 350 B.

13:00 pm - Lunch Time
Finish our lunch in Grand Sukhumvit Hotel which treated by the nice Uncle Dave. After lunch we  heading to His apartement which is right beside the hotel.
Low budget Travel's prinsip number 1: Search for a cheapest or FREE place to stay, yumm :3
Uncle Dave apartment is in Sukhumvit soi 6-Nana, nearby the BTS-Nana station.
It should be 1 pm, the time we should heading to the tourism destination, but because of Jet Lag we decide to take it flexible. We unpacked, take a little leg rest while decide what kind of transportation should we took to go to our destination. We decide to take taxi because we're running late behind schedule.

03:00 pm - Wat Pho & Wat Arun
Walked to the side of Sukhumvit road, we tried to hail a cab, one of them reject us directly, the driver said its terrible traffic to go to Grand Palace at that hour, another one agreed but by unreasonable price. Instead of agree the price, we choose to take the BTS which is surprisingly close, only 3 minutes walk from apartement.

Following the route given in tripadvisor; this is how you can reach those beautiful Wat; BTS to Saphan Taksin sation, right below the station there is Sathorn Pier, then you continue by boat. The orange or blue flag boat will take you directly to Grand Palace-Wat Pho-Wat Arun area.

First time of Chao Praya. Super nice.


Go down in Tha tien Pier and walk out from the small line of shop, in the left side you will see Grand Palace huge wall, and in the right side, there are Wat Pho gate.

Arrived there at 4:00 pm, and there's no way Grand Palace still open right? so we walked directly to Wat Pho. The ticket was 100 Baht, with free mineral drink. Wat Pho closed at 6:00 pm so we have much enough time to wandering around and doing ridiculous Photo session.

It was so beautiful, really. The painting outside the temple wall. The reclining Buddha statue, The painting art in the inner wall.

Reclining Buddha


Look at the painting


After Rain



Rain pouring after half hour we wandering around. The photograph session stopped and we were somewhere in the temple aisle filled with line of Buddha statue

Somewhere inside the aisle


Still rain *)
So we sat down on the floor, waiting for the rain to stop, Its only us and three other tourist lay down there not far from us, we really did enjoying the rain.

The place was so quiet because of rain and its almost the closing time. The atmosphere was so nice and shooting.

After the rain stop, we went to the out gate, rather panicky because almost all gate closed and chained, finally found one gate half openned and escaped from there. 

around 6 pm, We walk back to Tha tien pier to cross the river and reach Wat Arun. The boat to cross the river cost 3 Baht. When we arrived there, we regrets for not having snack or food in the store near the pier because we are starving and all shop there was already closed. 
After sat with blank looks for a while, I decide to come out the small hut and come closer to the Chao Praya -knee height- wall. 

The pleasant view of Chaopraya in the sunset was so mesmerizing.

Waiting for the light to on, it worth it
                                


6.30 pm : Asiatique the riverfront

Dinner time....! With starving to death stomach, we dragged our feet to Asiatique by the riverfront. Took the boat crossing back river again to Tha tien pier, then took the orange flage boat back to the Sathorn Pier, and queue the long line to seat in the free shuttle boat to Asiatique.

I was really hoping to find halal food in Asiatique. But surprisingly there were not any of it except the 'Kebab Store'. Desperate, after ate kebab and ice cream, we went to seven eleven at the back gate of Asiatique to buy snack for tomorrow and found many halal food outside the back gate (across the way). How happy.

Our wish to rode the Ferris wheel and watching Calypso show should be burried for the next chance because its already late and we are too tired plus not in a good mood.

2nd Day

6:30 am : Trip to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

It was by the kindness of Uncle Dave who rent us private car along with the driver, cost 3000 Baht, its rather expensive yeah, but we can go all around places we like to visit. All about promise to be ready at 06:25 failed to kept with us being over tired from the day before and woke up late (by I jump from the bed, and only have time to brushed my teeth and washed my face, because business man always strict about time of appointment).

We met Pepsi'...its not branded of drink name anyway, he is our kind driver. Speak english fluently despite the heavy accent. Its a nice trip, the morning was fresh, and the highway is quiet, not so many car there, passing by some worker riding the open trunk, Pepsi said they will go to the factory. After the 1 hour long ride, packed with nice scenery of temples and salt farm beside, we reached Damnoen Saduak Village.

Pepsi parked the car in a small river side pier, I actually plan to go directly to the market, referee in trip advisor said that it would be far cheaper 150 Baht per person by paddle boat. But Pepsi already go down the car, and we feel uneasiness to say so.

So we go down, and come to the attendant desk, he said it will cost us 800 Baht/person, a little bit surprise and we try to bargain the price, but he said we can't, its a two hour tour, so we just took it. 

The whole tour was perfect, nice scenery, house build above the water, every house have their own boat parking place, 

The village was so soothing guys, most recommended floating market ever!

*)

we stopped by the shopping place to taste the free coconut water ice, looking around, and continued our journey to the heart of the market. It did not crowded yet in there, only few tourist, and I highly recomend you to go there early in the morning. Because there will be the boat traffic if you go there late. 

Its really nice, the air, the local atmosphere, from all destination, this was my most favorite one. We taste the delicious and cheap sticky mango rice (50 Baht) and spring roll 10 Baht/3 pieces.
There were this funny experience that I laugh everytime I remember it. Actually we met Indonesian people too in the shopping place where we got the free coconut water, we exchange greeting etc, and she asked us how much we should pay for the boat, we answer and she snort, then we asked her price, and damn... we should never ask, she bargain it 1800 Baht for one boat filled with four people.

Anyway that made us made notice to bargain more harsh next time. And we did it, we bargain many food with sadistic price, LOL (we shouldn't do that, because unlike goods or boat, food is in the same price and already cheap compare to the one in town). We bargain the mango sticky rice like half the price, the seller told us to go away, and not far after our boat passing her, we asked the boat driver to go back, and he said he couldn't so he call the seller to paddle her boat closer. They talk in Thai like gossiping about us, LOL really....

Its still not end yet, when we pass the spring roll seller in her boat, got interested to taste it, we harsh bargain again, this time it caused a scene really. My two friends invade the seller to give us cheap price, they were loud and ridiculous, I can't stop laughing when the seller put his index finger in my friend mouth to shut up her. I almost die of laugh while took many picture of them.

War world, LOL!


We stop by the beautiful temple on the way back, there were many fish gather in the river beside the temple. What made me astonished is, thats the big river, and the fish really gather beside the temple small pier without any net between them and the river. Amazing.

I'm feeding the fishes =)
*)
The Temple in Damnoen Saduak

Went back to the pier, the boat driver was really funny and nice. Many funny experience I can't tell here (yeah like I will end up annoy you with my story not the reference destination). He said we are best, said it with stammered language and body gesture. 

The things I like. Adventure in the different language and culture really became into reality again here.


10 am: Amphawa Temple School and Market

What I descript to Pepsi was meant to be Maeklong Railway Market, but he misunderstood and took us to Amphawa market instead. But it turn out to be so cool. He parked the car near the temple school of Amphawa. Its called temple school because the high school located near the temple. I highly recomend you this place guys! Really
Its really beautiful, the temple, and the palace (King Rama ever lived here before move out), and the river scenery beside the school. What i like is, those places isn't really a big tourism destination. So its an exclusive and different experience to really dive in the local atmosphere.

Amphawa Temple

King Rama ever live in this palace
Beside the School
I really did not wanna leave the place, its too soothing, if Pepsi did not called us to heading to the market,  I. Will. Never. Drag. My. Feet. From. There.
The market is super nice too, they selling unique things like clothes, coke ice stick, and the most important things are weird foods. We bought 'Squid egg' and it taste good and weird, and i like it. The experience of tasting new food (Okay, basically, I just love eating).

We walk until the bridge where under it, is the river and also floating market. Oh, I love Thai river.

Amphawa floating market


We asked a woman whether that market is really Maeklong market because its different with what i saw in the TV, and she said its different place. So after we ate our lunch box, we got back to car, and I describe again to Pepsi what I really mean. And he said, 'Oh.... I got it, but its fresh market? are you really want to go there', I nodd like crazy, 'Yeah, i seen it in the television and that whats makes me interest more to come here in Thailand'

12 pm: Maeklong Railway Market

Its sun burning there, really hot like 37 C? probably.
Pepsi parked the car rather far, and we should find the way to the market, its seems like shop store in line everywhere, no sign like what I saw in the picture about the market. We asked here and there, and reached the market finally. I nearly jump of excitement.

See the board... ?


So sad, there were no train at that hour, maybe you can check the train schedule first if you want to saw the seller poker face while lifting all the hood covers when the train passing. But we have a lot of fun taking picture and seeing the weird stuff sold there.

I was SoooOOO (if it possible to add more O) happy when i finally found this market, after lost, and long long walk


3 pm: Apartement
Back to apartement,to pray, and because its finish early than predicted. That day, all destination target was reached, even with more additional-unpredictable nice place.

5 pm: Khao San Road

Because we dont trust taxi that much since our first experience with it is not really good, we choose public transportation if we want to go anywhere. Including Khaosan Road.

 To reach Khaosan Roads ,use BTS to Saphan Taxin station, then took orange flage boat in the Sathorn Pier, go down in Phra Atit pier. Its 10 minute walking from there to Khao san. Just use the I-phone direction, or ask local people. Their english isn't that bad.

Khaosan Road was heaven for backpacker guys. The Pad Thai, the fruits, the weird insect food, the bracelet, the souvenir, the clothes, and all with reasonable price. Try this Pad Thai! there are many Pad thai seller, but this man, He was the best.


For souvenir/bracelet/necklace for gift or for self, I recomend you to bought in Khaosan Road, the price is the cheapest compared to Platinum mall, and the choices were so many.

Many unforgetable experience here, being surveyed by some Thai student, met Indonesian new friend (She solo backpack for two weeks, diving-snorkling, sight seeing, how cool that was).
Try some? *my friends try some, but nope. I just say, kob kunkaa, mae se, mae..

Delicious Coconut Ice Cream

Epic *)
Cheap and vary bracelet 

Come. Step. Daze.

We even went back to Khaosan road again the next day, because couldn't find the nice bracelet everywhere (and because the food too)

3rd Day

7: 30 am: Catuchak Weekend Market
The Park beside the weekend market
Enjoying the warm Ilios
Catuchak is really worthed to visit guys. Enjoy the Cha (Tea) in the morning here. The delicious tea is mixed with milk and some creamer (?) i thought. The shopping was a satisfication. You can found almost anything in here. Gift, souvenir, clothes, any traditional and modern things with nice and cute appearance.

Sorry no picture, too busy of bargaining :p

12:00 pm : Siam Square and MBK
There are Siam World and Madam Tussauds in Siam Paragon which worth to visit, the ticket for both of it is around 1500 THB or something. Forgot. We didn't visited those, just took picture with crab statue and mermaid-shark cosplayer. After that we tried the famous mango tango behind siam square. Its too long queue and, for me the taste is so so.

5:00 pm: Khao San Road (again)
Epic. Its epic and never ending, the food, the bracelet, the ice cream, the crowd, the music, oh I love those.


4th Day

9:00 am : Pratunam Market
This market are complete, jam packed with cheap-nice-funny modern clothes. Worth visit, especially for woman =D.

Here, they also provide you with range choice of Thailand shirt for souvenir.

12:00 pm: Platinum Fashion Mall
Nice mall, the food, the stuff are more worthed than those in the MBK. Many cute souvenir, some with reasonable (discount) price, and some not. Just be a smart buyer *)

05.00 pm: BTS and Cityline to airport
After took the BTS ,we heading to airport link interconnection at Payathai station. Cityline has many stops and cost about 45 Baht, whereas Airport Express Route has direct route to airport which cost 90 Baht. They suggest direct route if you bring a lot of luggage, because the cityline will heavy loaded, and that would make your luggage become a burden to the other passengers.
We did the cityline because our luggage wasn't that much (really?) and we have enough time.


With the nice uncle Dave, the last day of escape

Another day of waiting

On my way to finish the overload work, the mp3 list move to TOKYO by Yui. Few second after that soft voice flowing to my ears, I stop my pen suddenly. I close my eyes. The dreams that I wanted so much to realize in the past and still until now. Those are the scenario that I wish I could bring into reality. Scenario made in 9 years.

I breathe Japan air.
In the shore line
With my bicycle
With my dress blown by breeze
With blissful smile
With love waiting for me in the front

Then I open my eyes
And I know
I’m living God scenario right now
Its reality
Not so fantasy divine
Not so fantasy divine

Because someday, everybody will have their own time
Because God scenario far better than mine

Bendungan Hilir Culinary- South Jakarta

It is just right after my team presentation about the breathtaking Jakarta, I went to the Ramadhan's street food market in Bendungan Hilir . This wednesday is really like miraculous coincidence time for all happening, its more than marvelous, to skip a routine a bit.

My team was given a task by Pak Garry Rattray (our super great mentor) to make a presentation about the good and the challenges in Jakarta. So that foreigner, expatriat, tourist, travel writer, will interest to enjoy Jakarta even more and write a good thing about it. With uncountable practise, trial and improved material, we made it today!

And it was hilarious, Pak Garry invite many interesting (High level) manager and expatriat to saw our presentation. The presentation end up with applause and appreciation, I'm so glad.

My part is about Shopping and Culinary. Indeed, it was a heavy but pleasant job to searching all kind of mouth watering picture of dishes from internet while I'm fasting. And finally the one who temptated to try all those dish is....me. I was really, really, really wish to have some, and then there my friend, being a reminder of our promise to go to the famous Ramadhan's street market In Bendungan Hilir area.

Felt like someone throwing a deer into a hungry Lion.




That was the atmosphere of "Pasar Kaget Ramadhan" (Sudden-temporary market in Ramadhan).

All the gourmet food from throughout the archipelago probably exist here. I became a hungry eyes one, buying almost everything looks good; Kue Lupis, Risoles Mayo, Pempek, Pecel with Bakwan and Bihun kecap. Nah, now I can barely move because of too full.

I miss that food so badly,those are the real Indonesian cuisine, and rich with local herbs.

"Food is a mirror of city tradition. Its highly affected by natural resources, climate and tradition, thats why travelling and culinary become best friends and completing each other"~ One of my words at today presentation, lol.

Anyway for you who stay in Jakarta, its recommended to visit this place, but its not a really hygiene place as it is a street food stall. But so far I'm still good, means the food is clean enough actually, I even read news that Pak Jokowi visit and bought many food from here last week.

Enjoy

Itazura Na Kiss, Love in Tokyo

I am fevering this dorama right now!

Who believe I was mocking and doing poker face to all my sister babble when she promote me this movie.
Okay well..that time, I finally did a short glance to finish her fussy mouth, I saw Kotoko and Irie scene, and I tought..its a lame act. I just too oriented that Kotoko should be more powerful and energic like in Itakiss 1996, and Irie should be more cold, not baby face like that. Somehow my first impression was not that good.
But then, I keep watching because my sister just keep laughing at every scene and it made me curious.
When I'm back in my boarding house, someday I really get bored, and remember this movie, so I checked the streaming line on gooddrama.net (advertising am i? hha).
And I found it interesting

Now I fevering, favoring, and still on going seeing this dorama. :3

The Main pair is;

1. Honoka Miki



She is cute and talented in her young age. My sister said she is not exaggerating her act and Kotoko in the manga should be like that. For me she is unique in her own way. I overdose with her cuteness in some scene, its really cute. But she should improve her act tomorrow if her dreams is to become BIG actress like Audrey Hepburn, believe she can.


I found the most dork scene, and damn, thats exactly what I felt in the XXX software training session yesterday (All session was in bloody english with native speaker). I praised a person behind me, she is from X oil company who often ask in every explanation break. I compliment how smart she is to keep asking question to the trainer, then she laugh and seems confuse, she said to me, "I ask because I dont understand". That time, in my mind I completely feels like this...





LOL, this pict depict me well.

2. Furukawa Yuki





"He is not one of the more obviously good-looking Japanese men like Satoh Takeru, but he is definitely attractive. It’s simpler, it’s nerdier but it works."~ sleepless

Couldn't agree more.

The first time I saw him, I was like...oh, Takashi Kashiwabara is definitely far better than him to play Irie Naoki, but then I found his unique way of deliver Irie character.
He was really suit Miki in Itakiss LIT, yes, both are awesome together, I can feel the chemistry.

And what makes me more admire him is, this interview on Dramafever. Yes I do agree with all the comment beside, that state his intelligence in answering the interview, he got the point in answering every question, he made it sharp, refreshing, and also thoughtful, no wonder he is science-engineering student before (ad again, haha).

Then...what makes me mooore amazed is, he is multitalented!
He loves street dance, and I like that. I like how he like and doing many big things, big dreams in his life.

It turns out that he has 10 years age gap with Hono Miki, well...it more interesting then.
Not that I like far age gap, its just....ah, never mind,hhe.

I like how he said that Miki is the most often person who chat with him during the movie, and he enjoyed it. Some sources even said that Furu seems like interest in her. Well...I worship them definitely, they just so cute together.

Overall, my sister said, this is Itakiss version that so much alike with the manga (I haven't read it yet)

Enjoy the movie =D

Nothing But Dreams

You can take everything from me God
Because it’s even not my right to insist it
Everything in this world is yours
But please, spare me one thing…

This, which can make Aithipatt TOP who lose everything rise from this state;





This, which can make Hazuki Rensuke who also lose everything wake from this state;



This is dreams

I’ll keep struggle
Even if there left nothing but dreams

Goodbye, Teacher



He was only an old man, the first time I saw him
Walking quietly, slowly, showing his particular prudent character or maybe just weakness of aging
But then he talk, he taught, he tell story
He is so warm

My first piano teacher and warmest friend in Capital
I always wonder his story, what kind of life he has
And I always interest in story behind someone, even more pianist

Last time we met, I finally knew his favorite Musician
Brahms and Liszt
… Liszt
I search many Liszt pieces, because I didn’t know Liszt
I listen many of it

I want us to analyze pieces together in the future
And exchanging story like we used to
But he said… He wants to rest
He has illness; he kind of has sixth sense and told me he feels his time come closer

But he said he’ll still meet me in this week’s class
And when I prepare to meet him
I met another









Rest In peace, my beloved friend
Even its brief lesson, you taught me many things
You trust me to play many etudes in short times
You said I’m good, and you flipped the book, flipped again, and its only took 2 meeting to me using 2 hands, I barely belief it

Rest In peace, and wait..
Someday I’ll play Liszt’s for you

And Chopin’s…

My favorite pianist that I supposed wants you to know last time
But listening your story in that short practicing time, made me forgot to said that


Rest In Peace
God must be love you more than I do J


*accompanied by Chopin Ballade op.23 no.1

Tchaikovsky's Concerto in D major





It was this and this that caught me up fallin in love

I was watching Nodame Cantabile
All pieces shown up were great, but when I heard Tchaikovsky's I was like...Oh
Sculpting and smiling wide from ear to ear

It touch my heart deep and rooted

I hope someday I can see it live, in Vienna Concert Hall, or other shimmering place in the world

Daily Activity

What're you doing when you dead bored now?
And what're you doing when you so bored in high school, or maybe elementary school?

Today, I just realize, that we were more creative in the past than now.
So, i remember, in the high school, when there was free hours, I colored my nails with stabilos, lol
And i did it today
It was so fun






Today Tuesday, everyone seems so busy, so Its just me and Miss Q who attended the Yoga class. 
It was the Body Balance session, and I'm sure, everyone gonna get jelous when they know this, they've been waiting for this for so long, but yesterday the sound system was having a little problem.

After the class, we were having Sauna and singing together in the hot shower, LOL

Its raining hard now, so I have a seat in the nearest cafe while having its Red Velvet that I'm so curious about.



So, have I told that my mother said, instead of shooting stars, our pray will be answered well when raining hard comes. Yes...my faith state that.

And..so I'm praying now

Let it be come true God, even in another form, Let it be come true soon. I can't wait it come true *)

The Star who Keep Starling



I love Swift, and Rihanna, they are my only distraction now.
One give me spirit and strong feeling when I need that. Another give me comfortness towards my weak side, whenever I hear her easy listening voice, I feel rilex-good-and warm enough.

They have a big fan base everywhere, in the world, but turns out that now, people always compare their 180 degrees different styles. why...they're unique in their own style..

"Never mind the mess: Forbes ranked Rihanna as music's third highest-paid woman in 2012 with some $53 million earned.
Part of those earnings are from a perfume line. One of her scents is called, appropriately enough, Nude. A titillating title, it also describes the unabashed, unvarnished, unhidden way she lives her life.
She's bad but she's no faker." ~news from a source


faker? they said Swift is a fake one?


"There's also the increased perception that Swift is serially dating solely for songwriting fuel, that ensuing tabloid response will feed sales."


How even they said, a woman got into relationship with a man, just to make them as an inspiration? yes ! if after that she's faking a sad face. Can't they look that Swift tried to fake a smile... *reversal


"Taylor in this past year has taken a hit," says MTV's Montgomery. "It started a few years ago when she was winning all those awards, and she was making that 'surprise face.' ... Taylor plays like she's eternally innocent, but look at her track record of men. There are people who think she's not genuine."

And here's her response


In a recent Vanity Fair profile, which tweaked her My Little Pony bio, Swift defended herself: 

"For a female to write about her feelings and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist."

Okay, so...when asked about, why she always changing lovers, she was like;


Relationships are like traffic lights and I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it’s a green light"


“I've kind of realized that I have no idea where I'm going to be next year, or in six months, or in two months. I mean, I know where I'll be on tour in two months, but no idea where I'm going to be mentally, emotionally, dreams, goals, wishes, hopes. I just have no idea and I'm kind of into that. You can make a board for all the goals you want in your life with the pictures on it, and that's great, daydreaming is wonderful, but you can never plan your future.”



I can't agree more. We just can planning,are'nt we?

I plan to marry on that year, I plan to fall in love with this kind of person, I plan to do this fun things in the future, but can we drive it exactly that way...

Well..what i know at least is, everyone has a right to hate or love a figure. I wont mock them who mock her, they can do whatever they want, but I'm pretty sure she will go on, she will get through this all. 

She and Rihanna. Their song, their style, their voice, everything is awesome. And I can't stop admiring how they strive to shine no matter how harsh people's comment on them


They are kind of person that can turn 'underestimate', 'grief, 'sorrow, and hate into art of work.


Hope I can be so. Hope I can strive to be my best like 'em
Hope I can be the Starling one.



Taylor Swift wrote an entire album about the importance of being fearless. 


“To me, Fearless is not the absense of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death." ~ Taylor Swift
