Mr. Sunshine OST (Ongoing)

It is a much anticipated Korean drama for this year. As we all know, the writer (Kim Eun Sook) of this drama is very well known as a hit maker. All of her drama will have a high rating worldwide. Let me repeat, worldwide.

Just named it, Secret Garden, The Heirs, Descendant of the sun, and the latest one is Goblin. All of them have different plot, different setting, different genre etc. But all of them was high rating dramas and incredulously famous in Korea also abroad.

So, when the news about Mr. Sunshine came out, everybody is curious and really anticipating of the drama. Not to mention, the director also known for his great directing.

It was still in episode 2, but I really like it. Somehow, it reminds me of Chicago Typewriter which I love it to the bone. Same like Chicago Typewriter, the idea of a heroine with strong character is always great to watch. I have soft spot for this kind of dramas.

As expected, as a fully pre-produced drama, the cinematography and editing is a top notch. It was like watching some kind of movie instead of an episode of drama. The acting of the lead male is no doubt, off course amazing as always.

The only thing that bothers me is the story. I hardly understand the story since it related to Korean history. I need to watch it more than once to fully understand the story line. Not recommended for dram a lovers who only like a light and simple drama.

And what I like the most from most of her dramas is their original soundtrack (OST). Most of them are amazing song and instrumental music that really fit for the drama, for each and every scene.

I am still in love with the other 3 drama OST that I mention above. I definitely cannot wait to hear the 4th one from this new ‘masterpiece’ of her.

And, then there it is, a first OST from Park Hyo Shin’s voice which is a really great, powerful, and beautiful song. Oh my, I love his voice ever since he sings Snowflower as OST for winter sonata.

Now, let’s start with the OST list:

1. Park Hyo Shin – The Day

Ruler: Master of The Mask OST and BGM

Ruler: Master of the Mask or Emperor: Owner of the Mask is my latest watched drama. It is a drama I have been waiting for since a long time ago after both @wow_kimsohyun (as Han Ga Eun) and Yoo Seung Ho (as crown Prince Lee Sun) confirmed as the main leads.

Both were talented child actor/actress and consider young also successful in the Kdrama industry. In terms of acting, they are known as masters of melodrama who could portray emotional scene very well. Hence, both acting is not disappointing at all throughout the drama.

Their acting is a top notch. They don’t have to speak through words. Their eyes, facial expression, and gesture told us all. Not to mention, both visual are absolutely beautiful and handsome.

I also love almost all the supporting cast, be it a protagonist or antagonist. They have their own background story which unfortunately uncovered for only 20 episode drama. From a pitiful Lee Sun, a strong Hwa Goon, a hateful Dae Mok, a smart Woo Boo, a cool Chung Woon, funny Moo Ha, a badass Mae Chang, an irritating Tae Ho, a mysterious Gon, a cutie Kko Mool and many more.The story is kinda heavy, not typical lighthearted, romance, or melodrama that easy to digest as we watched. And this is not, a romance drama that circle on the 2 main leads only (like most of the drama nowadays).

This is a drama about the journey of a pure and innocent crown prince (Seja) to become a true king, a true ruler, a true emperor for his people. But, that is exactly what makes this drama interesting to watch and wait for. The angst is almost in every episodes that make me cringe at the end of it.

Eventhough many viewers comment about the plot hole or undeveloped character and many things, but it’s not enough to make me drop this drama halfway.

Despite of this drama controversy regarding the writing, the directing, also editing, I decide to enjoy the show till the end and support all of the cast and production team who have been working so hard for 7 month during 3 season. They all have done a seriously great job till the end.

After all, it is not an easy task to write, moreover, to write such a deep meaningful historical drama script for only 20 episode (as far as I watch this kind of historical drama, it always more than 20 episodes). And, trust me, the drama is amazing in the beginning, a little bit draggy in the middle, but it is getting better to the end with a satisfying ending.

The cinematography is beyond word, breathtakingly beautiful, especially if @wow_kimsohyun and  Yoo Seung Ho are in one frame, they are oozing with charming aura. So many scenes that look as beautiful as a painting, surreal. I can not even decide which I like best since it is too many.

The OST involve many artists and more than I expected. They were all good and ear catching and somehow connected to the emotion in each scene. Even the BGM and the sound effect are worth listening because they are very fit to every scene in the drama.  Kudos to the sound director and music director, which make me post the list here. My favorite are songs by Hwang Chi Yeol, K. Will, Hwan Hee, Kim Yeon Ji, and Suran.

Last, this is definitely one of my favorite historical drama, alongside The Moon that Embrace The Sun, Jewel in the palace, Jumong, and The Legend. This drama could have been more than all of those dramas. It have potential to be one. The story idea, the cast, the cinematography, the sound, the music, even the dialogues (lines) are consider high quality. If, just if, the story development is much better.

But hey, there is no perfect drama. A drama can not pleased every viewers. Furthermore, it is only 20 episode historical drama, which apparently is not enough. But one thing for sure. This drama definitely deserved awards.

Chicago Typewriter OST and BGM

After survived from a challenging week, I reward myself by watching ongoing kdrama. Currently obsessed with Chicago Typewriter which is very underrated, IMHO. This drama is superb. It definitely will be one of the best drama in my list. So, please bare with me. I’m going to rant a lot over this drama.
At first, I was curious about Im Soo Jung (@soojunglim_) who comeback to dramaland after 13 years off. She is so great in I’m Sorry I Love You also …Ing and many other movies. Yoo Ah In (@hongsick) also draws my attention since he always play a challenging character, meaningful if I may say. Just look at his previous work such as Sungkyungkwan ScandalFashion King, Jang Ok Jung. There is also Go Kyung Pyo (@kopular) which left good impression on me after Flower Boy Next Door and Reply 1988.

After I watch the first few episodes. I realized it is such a great drama, an unpredictable one.

The storyline. It is mostly about life of a writer but they deliver it in a very interesting way. The idea of using past (Korea in 1930) and present time as setting for their story is something that I rarely seen in kdrama world. Since ‘writer’ is the big theme of the drama, they spoiled me with many book reference, writer reference, beautiful book cafe, inspiring book quotes, and last but not least, amazing privat library of writers. Me, as a bookworm myself, could not ask for more. Books is everywhere.

The cast. I was amazed on how @hongsick perfectly portrayed the eccentric brassy filthy rich writer #hansejoo in the present time and a mysterious poised #seohwiyoung in the past as if they were two character portrayed by 2 different actor. Not to mention the deep, genuine, and cutest bromance with his literally ‘ghost’writer @kopular . The love line with @soojunglim_ which is more than just ‘cheesy’ romance. Add with an eccentric, funny, and random editor played by the #goblin secretary. All I can say, they are the best cast for this drama. .

The OST. Oh my, TVN always provides great OSTs, including this one. All OST and background music are perfectly connect to the story. So far, my favorites is Satellite by SaltNPaper also one from SG.Wannabe.

Last, I love how they include mystery, writer issues, publishing issues, politic issues, world problem, pop culture, fashion, and art in this drama without too dramatize or exaggerate.

So here are some of the OST:

1. SALTNPAPER – Satellite

2. CeeLo – Better Late Than Never [episode 1, during Han Se Joo book fansign in Chicago)

3. Celine Dion – Power of love [episode 1, the scene when the dog run to Jeon Seol instead of Se Joo]

4. Benny Goodman – Sing, Sing, Sing [episode 2, music for dancing scene of the trio in Carpe Diem]

5. Nam In Su – Impressive days [episode 2, the song that the trio sing while walking together]

6. Ruth Etting – All of me [episode 3, the record that Shin Hyul played)

7. Blooming Memories – Baek Ye Rin [episode 3]

8. The Platters – Only you [episode 4, when Bang Jin met Yoo Jin Oh]

9.  Park Dan Ma – Wind [Episode 5, Su Yeon sang in Carpe Diem]

10. Park Dan Ma – Wind [Episode 5, Im Soo Jung Version]

11. Writing Our Stories – SG. Wannabe [ending episode 5]

12. Broccoli, you too – Unless give damage to others [episode 7, Se Joo and his editor at the cafe]

13. Be My Light – Kevin Oh [episode 7]

14. Ed Sheeran – Bloodstream [episode 8, when Jeon Seol and Tae Min in the café]

The K2 Kdrama OST

After being hiatus from kdrama world (the last one was Doctors), I decided to take a peek of currently airing kdrama. Then I bumped into this one drama from TVN called The K2. As always, TVN made always made a great drama (eventhough the ending not always as we wanted to be). Named it, Cheese In The Trap, Reply series, Signal, Another Oh Hae Young, Let’s Fight Ghost, Dear My Friends, Cinderella and Four Knights, Oh My Ghost, Let’s Eat, Misaeng, Flower Boy next Door, and Queen In Hyun’s man.

I’ve been hearing about this drama even before the drama airing. I was kinda interested because I heard Ji Chang Wook will be in it, the genre is action, and the writer is the same as the Yong Pal’s. Furthermore it will be in TVN. So yes, I’m in.

the-k2-korean-drama-2016-posterI finally watched it when it already in episode 6. So far, I like it. It just a matter of preferences. Many viewer don’t like it because of Yoona’s (SNSD) acting. But for me, she is not bad for an Idol Actress. In fact, she is much better. She is improving a lot (trust me, I’ve watched all of her dramas back then) in terms of acting. So I’m gonna give her credit for her role as Anna.

k2As for other cast, they are great. Loving the action scene and an intense conversation between the cast. Also loving a shred of comedy from Anna’s bodyguard. The truth is, I like the story line, unpredictable. I don’t know who is the true culprit as I think that every one in the drama could be the one. Have to watched it till the end to know about it then. And I did. Love this drama to the bone. Great cast, great act, great action, great plot, and great ending.

Now, talking about kdrama always involve its original soundtrack (OST). Since it is TVN, I am fond of the OST. Most of OST from TVN’s dramas never dissapoint me. Including The K2 drama which I am currently watching, now. Awesome OST, if I may say.

Another Oh Hae Young List of OST and BGM

Another Oh Hae Young 1

Not long ago, I decided to give a break with TVN dramas because of one hell of rollercoaster and  a bit painful journey with their dramas, such as Reply 1988 and Cheese In The Trap. Actually, they are very good dramas, very very good indeed. It just somehow, along the way, there were so many things involved that make me think, “Aaah too bad, it could have been a great dramas ever.”

Anyway, I guess that just me being disappointed and hard to move on. Since I heard that Eric Mun comeback to kdramaland with Seo Hyun Jin, I really anticipate for it. I’ve known him since he is in Shinhwa and fell in love more when he play Super Rookie alongside Han Ga In. So, I can’t not really wait. But then, it will be in TVN. Darn! But, for the love of Eric, I decided to open my heart again for TVN * well, I always love TVN for their dramas and Music and Drama OST *

At first, Another Oh Hae Young or Another Miss Oh or Oh Hae Young Again is not quite known, especially when everyone in the galaxy still rooting for DOTS (descendant of The Sun). But me, I knew from the start that I will love this drama and it will be another good journey. I watch it because of the cast which I love for their acting in dramas. Let’s see, Kim Mi Kyung, my favorite actress which involved in many great dramas (The Heirs, Yong Pal, Can You Hear My Heart). Kim Ji Suk which I known from his role in Cheongdamdong Alice and Ye Ji Won from the latest Page Turner drama. As for the story, definitely refreshing, the whole family is entertaining. Not to mention, the idea that Eric is a sound producer, make it very interesting. The drama emphasize about sound a lot which a new knowledge and experience for drama viewers like me.

So, this drama currently airing and just reached episode 7 from the whole 18 episode. Pray that it will be a funny, romantic, and warm journey to the end. Just like the OST and BGM they had offered so far. A catchy, upbeat, warm, mellow song and music which now filling my playlist altogether with CITT OST, Goodbye Mr. Black OST, Beautiful Gong Shim OST, Coldplay, Adele and Shawn Mendez.

GUNPLA: AEU ENACT CUSTOM TYPE

Sebenarnya saya mau posting mengenai gunpla sejak zaman dahulu kala. Tapi apa boleh buat, baru bisa terlaksana sekarang. Jadi, saya ini salah satu penggemar anime bergenre Mecha alias robot terutama GUNDAM * baca Gandam *. Apa saja seri Gundam yang masuk dalam daftar tontonan saya bisa dilihat di postingan berjudul 25 Gundam TV engraved in my memory.

Teramat sukanya saya dengan robot-robot itu, sampai-sampai timbul keinginan untuk merakit gunpla sendiri. Apa itu Gunpla? Gunpla  * dalam bahasa Jepang dibaca Ganpura * adalah singkatan dari Gundam Plastic Model Kit adalah plastik Model kit Gundam. Pembuatan gunpla diadaptasi dari anime berjudul Mobile Suit Gundam dan diproduksi oleh Bandai.

Untungnya, hobi saya sama dengan adik, jadilah kami bahu-membahu dalam hal gunpla ini. Adik saya yang membeli dan saya yang merakit * maklum, adik saya kerjanya ga kenal waktu, jadi sedikit banget waktu luangnya *

Gunpla AEU ENACT CUSTOM TYPE ini adalah gunpla yang saya rakit sendiri dan menghabiskan waktu 2,5 jam * kepotong makan dan ‘urusan pribadi’ hehe * Puas? yah bisa dibilang cukup memuaskan. Biasanya merakit gunpla grade SD (Super Deformed) alias gundam mokit dengan ukuran yang mini, tiba-tiba merakit gunpla grade HG (High Grade) dengan ukuran yang lebih besar rasanya cukup melelahkan. Apalagi kalau merakit gunpla grade MG (Mega Grade) dan PG (Perfect Grade) ya…

Goodbye Mr. Black List of OST

After Descendants of The Sun (DOTS) ended, I practically move on to other dramas. Fortunately, there is this one drama I watch along with  the DOTS. Which none other than Goodbye Mr. Black. Eventhough the drama is quite off radar or I may say underrated, but somehow I was curious enough to make me continue watching it I watched it silently because everyone eyes, heart, and soul was in DOTS.

Furthermore, this drama is a comeback drama for Moon Chae Won, one of actress that I fond of after watched The Princess’s man, Good Doctor, and Innocent Man. Ah, it also have Song Jae Rim in it and Im Se Mi, so yeah, I like them too.

goodbye-mr-black-poster5

This drama is based on the original Manhwa/Webtoon called Goodbye Mr. Black.” by Hwang Mi Na which was first published in 1983. The comic is motivated by French author Alexandre Dumas’s novel “The Count of Monte Cristo“.

After saw their first few episodes, I kinda liked it although not as far as crazy about it or ‘baper’ in Indonesian Language. It got me hook, at least until now. And the OST, off course I like the OST. That is why I decided to write this post. Especially the OST Part 4 which I kept replayed in my playlist along with CITT OST and DOTS OST.

So, here are some of the OST that captured my heart * tsaaah *

1. Baek Ji Young – Goodbye [OST Part 1]

Descendants of the Sun OST List

Descendants-of-the-Sun

Another kdramas in my waiting list for 2016 is finally airing, Descendants of the Sun. Really curious of how it will be since the writer is the great Kim Eun Sook. Not to mention the lead cast is our Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

Both of them are my favorites. Love Song Hye Kyo since Autumn Tales era till now. While Song Joong Ki, well, first time I saw him was in Triple. And this is his new drama after serving his nation in Military. So, who is not gonna be excited to watch him again after 2 years, right.

One more thing, this drama shooting is already ended aka pre-produced, which is I believe, just like Cheese in The Trap, the cinematography and the editing or the scene showing will be just perfect since they have time to make it the best they can. Furthermore, from what I saw, we will be spoiled by many topless soldier scene, Oh dear…

After watching their first 2 episodes, I know I have been fallen in love. And fortunately, it aired during the time when I felt down because of the lack of JungSeol moment in Cheese In The Trap. Somehow, it lifted my kdramas spirit up.

But hey, it just been 2 episode, don’t know about the rest. But I like what I’ve seen so far. The drama kinda reminds me of “Tour of Duty” (a drama aired back in the eighties. beside about war, friendship, military, it also about love between a Liutenant and a doctor. What a memories).

First Recommended Kdrama in 2016: Cheese in The Trap

Definitely in love with this drama called Cheese In The Trap. My newest addiction in 2016. Wondering a lot, giggling nonstop, and enjoying a lot the whole time watching. Even though it just only 4 episodes and still ongoing until the 16th episode, but it really hooked me. Fall in love with Hong Seol while swooning over Yoo Jung and In Ho.

CITT (4)Interesting story.

Well, what can you expect, this drama is based on Line webtoon, so I’m pretty sure that it will be quite funny, hilarious, cute, heartwarming and also a lit bit mysterious.

Based on the original webtoon with the same title by “Soon Ggi” which was published via “Naver Online” from 2010-July-07.

CITT (1)Hong Seol (Kim Go Eun) isn’t the smartest or most privileged university student, but she is without a doubt hardworking and earnest. In contrast, Hong Seol’s senior, Yoo Jeong (Park Hae Jin), is a high achiever with the good looks, athleticism and grades to prove it — but he harbors a dark side. Even stranger, an unlikely alliance is forged between these two classmates from opposite sides of the track * from dramafever.com *

Perfect cast.

There is no doubt that the director and producer did their best to cast the actors and actresses. They were all like some kind of people who came out from the comic book. They are perfectly suit for the character, IMHO.

CITT (3)Especially for Hong Seol character. I just love how Kim Go Eun perfectly portrayed her. Her natural beauty, her quirkiness, her nervousness, her gesture, her voice, her cute monolog, her outfit, her smile, is just perfect for the role * I am officialy her fan since then. *

Beautiful Cinematography.

Since the drama has been filmed before it airs, I think the production staff put their maximal efforts to do the editing, to make the drama looks so beautiful in its own way.

I love how they show the scene of Yoo Jung and Seoul in the campus near the stairs when they stared to each other, or when Yoo Jung silently following Seoul from behind after she had a hard time during presentation. It just beautiful.

Refreshing and addicting OST.

Somehow, I love almost all music or Original Soundtrack from dramas airs on TVN. Somehow, they always offered different kinds of music. At first, I hardly know the singer since it pretty much not a worldwide idol out there. But that what make it so refreshing. It just 4 episode, and I already downloaded all the OST * hopefully can buy the CD soon. * Repeatedly listen to it just because the beat, the tune, the song are all perfect fit for the drama.

That College Campus Look.

Actually, watch this drama make me sob just a little. Thinking back on how I look during my college campus day. Oh my dear, I am not even look  a tiny bit like them all * can I turn back the time puhleeees *

CITT 6How can’t I be swoon over of Yoo Jung sophisticated style, somehow look simple, classic, and casual. In love with Hong Seol comfortable and warm outfit. Last but not least, sporty Eun taek and girly Bo Ra style will surely make your college day look brighter * at least brighter than I do before *

So, if you haven’t watch this drama, I suggest you start now. You can watch it here or here.

And when watching and reading webtoon is not enough, why don’t you join Cheese In The Trap family in soompi, I bet you’ll get fast update and many interesting fact about this Cheese In The trap drama, not to mention, you’ll find new friends who is as crazy as you are. At least it help you lessen the suffering of waiting next episode to come.

An Ongoing List of Korean Drama

I am a drama addict. Yes I am. Any kind of drama. Just named it. One of those dramas is Korean drama worldwide known as kdrama. Since I was a teenager, I spent some of my spare time to watch kdrama marathonly * if you know what I mean with marathon *

background kdrama

Suddenly, I was thinking. How many kdramas have I watch for all these time? So then, I recall deep inside my memory and go down the memory lane of kdrama.

New Addiction: Yong Pal, The Gang Doctor Drama and OST

Here come my newest addiction. After immerse into the story of Na Bong Sun and Chef Kang in the amazing drama called Oh My Ghostess (also known as Oh My Ghost), finally I can move on to another drama. Thanks God, Yong Pal is coming to the rescue.

Yong Pal is a Korean drama about a doctor named Kim Tae Hyun (played by the handsome and tall Joo Won) who is a very skillful surgeon. At day, he works in Hospital while at night he did a house call for gangster. And the sole reason is because he desperately need money to pay the loan shark and also to pay for her sister dialysis (she is very sick). * but I think, this Yong pal really love to be a doctor from the bottom of his heart. because no matter the reason is, no matter the patients status is, he will definitely help them. And he don’t care with other’s opinion about him. *

He then meets Han Yeo Jin (Kim Tae Hee)  a ‘princess’ who is in deep sleep in the hospital. * more like she is a sleeping beauty waiting for his prince which none other than Yong Pal * And that is where all the story began…

I really really love this drama * the prove is I following this currently airing drama. Usually, I am the type who will wait until the drama ends then watch it. But for Yong Pal, I patiently wait for the next episode to be aired. * The action, the intense, and the emotion portrayed by the actors are amazing. The Original Soundtrack, oh the OST is dragged me more into this drama.

Here is the list of the OST so far:

1. The One – To My Love ( OST Part 1)

2. James Brown – I feel Good (episode 3, when Yong Pal do the make over for his looks)

2. Yong Jun Hyung and Heo Ga Yoon – Nightmare (OST Part 2)

3. Westlife – Angel (episode 7, when Tae Hyun play a song from his phone for Yeo Jin)

4. Jung In – Actually, I’m Scared (OST Part 3)

5. Baek Ah Yeon – So We Are (OST Part 4)

6. K. Will – Coming To Me (OST Part 5)

7. Park Hye Soo – Remember Me Only (OST Part 6)

 

Who Are You – School 2015 Energizing Original Soundtrack (OST & BGM)

This is one of kdrama that has been on my list. Why? Because I like Kim So Hyun acting since I watch her first drama * this noona is really your fan, hehe * Although I’m not that young anymore, but I guess there is nothing wrong for me to follow this drama. In fact, I really need to watch this kind of drama so I gain more knowledge about how youngster live their life nowadays. I am very sure it is very different from mine back then.

The first 3 episode is satisfying, at least for me. And the soundtrack, really catch my ears attention. Will try to compile all the OST here. I trully hope that all the OST will be as energizing as the drama plot and the cast.

Am I Minshinner (Min Ho and Shin Hye Shipper) ?

I’ve been listen to this song some times ago. But lately, this song pop up again in my mind. Can’t get the beat out of my head. But what surprises me is that the song connect me not only to the real video but also the video about Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho which made by their fan.

Some might be wondering  why I even know that their video is exist at the first place. Well, because I am a Minshinner. That what we called ourselves. Minshinner means we are shipping Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho from the heart. Shipping them means, prayed that they will be together as a couple in a real life.

Why Park Shin Hye and Lee  Min Ho?

MS_08_zps32ee132f

 

Well, as we all know, about one year ago they played drama The Heirs as the lead. Once, there was rumor about them been dating during filming * only God knows whether its true or not, but deep down inside I really hope it’s true * Since then, many fans started shipping them and called themselves as Minshinner * And there is this amazing one ‘heaven’ for us in soompi forum called Minshin Thread. Now, they already closed thread 1, so we move on to thread 2 * incredible *

Truthfully, I have never ever shipping Korean actor and actress before. Not until I watch the heirs. Even though many people out there decline their good chemistry on the drama, but there also many that feel amazed by their good chemistry which lead them became Minshinner.

Minshinner often called crazy for being so over delulu or delusional because of lack of evidence about these two interaction offscreen * I do believe so * but that what makes me even more interest to became one. Despite of the lack of evidence, they keep growing * I guess * in numbers.

Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho, both are well known artist in Korea and Worldwide. They are Hallyu stars of their generation. They have a strong fan base and they had a quite similar journey in their each respected career. They both good looking and known for having a good heart * well, I pray that they are, since only God knows what inside someone’s heart * So, no wonder some fans want them to be together just because they look perfect fit for each other.

For me, I love being Minshinner because many of Minshinner have this kind of mature attitude. Minshinner respect both of them as ‘couple’ and as individuals. We support Shin Hye and Min Ho individual projects.
Minshinner understand that they absolutely have 300% rights to be with others they choose, but unless both of them come clean to the public with whom they had relationship, we will still shipping them to the heart and bone.
Minshinners shipping them and prayed not only for them to became a lovers but further than that, we shipping them to have a marriage and happy life together forever * it will be one hell long journey until it came true * And if only they didn’t marry each other in the future, we will keep support them and prays for their happiness forever and that will be the day our ship going down.
Minshinner also trying hard not to bash other fans or other shipper related to Min Ho or Shin Hye * we consciously realized that everyone have their own opinion and rights and free to speak it out loud, just like us *
And last but not least, I love how Minshinner have a lot of imagination, sense of humor, and creativity * for this, if you need prove, just drop by to the forum in soompi *

A Day at Toys City with RX 0 UNICORN GUNDAM 03 PHENEX

One day, I went to Toys City with my lil bro. Our favorite spot is a shelf full of Gundam. * Kyaaaa, gundam di mana-mana. rasanya pengen gw bawa pulang semuanya * So, we take a look at them, one by one. When finally, something caught my eyes.

It is RX O UNICORN GUNDAM 03 PHENEX. Full psycho frame prototype mobile suit gold coating. RX O UNICORN GUNDAM 03 PHENEX is a mobile suit that appeared in Mobile Suit Gundam UC: One of Seventy Two, a short animation feature at Gundam Front Tokyo’s “DOME-G” on August 3, 2013. It is based off a short story written by Gundam Unicorn’s author, Fukui Harutoshi.

Sooooo cool. * Mauuu… Mupeeeeng tingkat dewa * Tapi kok feeling ga enak yah. Bener ajah, pas liat label harganya * deg deg deg deg * OMG, more than 2 million rupiah * idr 2 xxx xxx * O_O

Ouch! sakitnya tuuuuh di siniii * tunjuk dada *

Oh Nooooo. Have to save lots of my money first to bring it home safely with me. Poor me. Ga papalah, sekarang cukup puas dengan berfoto bersama * padahal ama boxnya doank * sabar ya, nanti dirimu aku bawa pulang, suatu saat nanti * lebay *

Kira-kira beginilah kalo udah dirakit. Keren bingit kalo kata anak sekarang mah.

Lee Min Ho’s New Mini Album: Song For You

Who in the world doesn’t know this one particular guy. The man himself, Lee Min Ho, Male God of Asia * trust me, I’m not the one give him this title. It just show how famous he is in Asia. *

905396_440644686066168_2073742231_o_zps50b6bb2e.jpg~originallmh_heirs0tumblr_nd2yujqXpV1r3n4xoo1_500

Me, myself not really into him. Like him but not as much as hardcore fans. When the whole world around me get crazy over him, I just don’t. Don’t know exactly why. I do watched some of his drama, such as Boys over Flower, Personal Taste, and City Hunter but not making me dare to call myself his fans. Some of my friends think I’m weird those days, for not fanning him.

But that was before “The Heirs” I am Park Shin Hye fan in terms of I love her acting despite the fact that I am noona to her. She is just too cute, have an angelic face, and great in doing aegyo or crying scene. So, when I watch The Heirs, which Min Ho was in there, to be his male lead exactly, I was being drown by his acting through all episodes. I was being one of his fan nowadays. And now, whenever I talk about him in front of my friends, they just like “what? just just realize now, after all those years we’ve been talking about him IN FRONT of you and YOU not interested. Pleaseeee” with all their gaze dagger at me.

So, here I am, writing about him and his new Mini Album. He might not be the best singer out there, but he definitely one of the best entertainer. And his deep and hoarse voice really help him in singing. His singing skill maybe average * compared to other singer or actor be singer * but he definitely nailed it, in terms of bringing the soul and emotion into his song.

After listening to his song, such as Painful Love. I guess, his voice finally captured my heart * tsaah, melted * So when his new mini album finally released, I was so excited to hear what kind of song and how he will represent the song. Well, I’m surprised, it turns out very good. he really nailed the pop rock type of song. I love the beat, the music, the melody, the lyric, and off course the voice. My most favorite will be Burning Up * keep replaying it in my phone *

Song for You

The Lyric

In my eyes that are blacker than the night sky
My path was getting farther away
My heart was filled up all the way with the world, oh my dream

Your eyes shined closer and clearer when I was tired
You are my sunshine, like a strange ray of light
Shine on my heart that is hidden

As I follow the stars, follow the path
Because you’re there, because you came to me
I am living one more day

You shine on me, you fill me up
Only you are my everything in this world

I will sing
A song for you

Words are not enough
I just look into your eyes, in my love

For you

 

Paradise In Love

The Lyric

Darling, close your eyes, let’s leave together for a bit
Darling, can you feel this sweet love song?

Darling, lean on me, won’t you come with me?
Darling, think about it, oh paradise in love

Water flowing on soft sand, you and I at that place
Can you hear the wind spells for love?
Your eyes and smile are as clear as the sky

Darling, open your eyes and look at me
Oh paradise in love

Water flowing on soft sand, you and I at that place
Can you hear the wind spells for love?
Your eyes are as clear as the sky
Our kiss is as deep as the ocean

Darling, I love you, my love, you’re as beautiful as the sunset
Let’s make love, oh paradise in love

 

Stalker

The Lyric

Good Night
Words that comforted me
At that last moment, your smile felt deeper to me

Let’s leave, let’s leave farther away
Waiting for you is good for me

You want me now, it’s time now
I love you, I need you, tonight
Before the night is over, before it’s too late
Tell me you love me again
Hold tight to my hand and tell me you always waited for me

I’m the only one
I’m the only one for you

Don’t tell me to give up on you
It’s meaningless to me
It’s alright, you’re prettier like that

The reason you left me
Yes, so I can forget it
I can be better, better than that other person

You want me now, it’s time now
I love you, I need you, tonight
Before the night is over, before it’s too late
Tell me you love me again
Hold tight to my hand and tell me you always waited for me

I love You, I need you

 

Travel

The Lyric

No words can express how I feel
We’re looking at the same place
We’ve thought the same things from the start
Everything is in your eyes

Hold my hand tight right now
The sky looks good
With you, I’ll Travel Travel Travel (Travel Travel Travel)

You and me, just like this, all right, the dazzling sunlight
This happy moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel
You and I, forever, all right, the shining moonlight
This endless moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel

I’m confident Uh-ho Yeah

No one can take your place
We both have similar feelings
We thought similar things from the start
I see everything in you

Hold my hand tight right now
The sky looks good
With you, I’ll Travel Travel Travel

You and me, just like this, all right, the dazzling sunlight
This happy moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel
You and I, forever, all right, the shining moonlight
This endless moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel

Throw away your worries and get up to love
It’s a new beginning

This happy moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel
You and I, forever, all right, the shining moonlight
This endless moment, toward your heart, I’ll travel travel travel

I’m confident Uh-ho

Travel Travel Travel

 

Burning Up

The Lyric

Forget about the lover who left you
Tears don’t suit you
Erase the bad memories
Only look at me, hold me and feel me

When he says it’s for you, it’s all a lie
Don’t listen to anything but what I tell you
When he says he loves you, that you’re the only one, it’s a lie

On at this moment
Come into my heart
I wanna feel your love
There’s no need for tears for you and me
Come on get closer
Make tonight hot

Listen, you’re the only one for me, you’re always my love
So I can burn up your painful scars from your break up
I’m burning up now

Throw away your past lover
Lingering feelings don’t suit you
Wash away his traces
Now fill up your heart with me

When he says it’s for you, it’s all a lie
Don’t listen to anything but what I tell you
When he says he loves you, that you’re the only one, it’s a lie

On at this moment
Come into my heart
I wanna feel your love
There’s no need for tears for you and me
Come on get closer
Make tonight hot

Listen, you’re the only one for me, you’re always my love
So I can burn up your painful scars from your break up
I’m burning up now

Baby girl, close your eyes
And when you open them again
You and I, just us two, forever

On at this moment
Come into my heart
I wanna feel your love
There’s no need for tears for you and me
Come on get closer
Make tonight hot

Listen, you’re the only one for me, you’re always my love
So I can burn up your painful scars from your break up
I’m burning up now

I’m burning up now

Jak-Japan Matsuri 2014

 

Akhirnya, saya berkesempatan juga menyambangi event jepang yang cukup terkenal ini, Jak-Japan Matsuri 2014. Setelah 5 kali event ini diadakan, baru di yang ke-6 ini saya bisa hadir. Senang dan excited bukan main rasanya. Maklum, saya ini salah satu pecinta Jepang. Bukan berarti saya tidak cinta Indonesia loh. Indonesia still number one.

Apa sih JJM alias Jak-Japan Matsuri? bagi kalian yang belum tahu, JJM itu diawali pada tahun 2008 bertepatan dengan diselenggarakannya event peringatan 50 tahun hubungan diplomatik Indonesia-Jepang. Pada saat itu ada pemikiran bagaimana agar nyala api persahabatan yang berkobar selama ini dapat terus terjaga dengan baik.

Dari niat tersebut berkumpullah warga Jepang yang mencintai Indonesia diikuti dengan munculnya simpati dari warga ibu kota Jakarta dan pemerintah DKI Jakarta, sehingga dengan berpijak pada persahabatan yang telah terbina selama 50 tahun lalu itu, lahirlah ”Jak-Japan Matsuri” yang di dalamnya terkandung harapan bahwa sekalipun zaman berubah namun kizuna, ikatan persahabatan kedua negara, akan semakin lebih luas dan kuat. (Sumber: http://www.id.emb-japan.go.jp).

Nah, tema Jak-Japan Matsuri tahun ini adalah INDONESIA-JAPAN ONE TEAM, maju bersama sambil bergandeng tangan. Dan, baru pertama kali ini pulalah, acara penutupan Jak-japan matsuri bertempat di Parkir Timur Senayan setelah selama 5 tahun ke belakang selalu diadakan di Monas. Jak-Japan Matsuri ini berlangsung dari tanggal 14-21 September 2014. Unfortunately, saya cuma bisa ikutan di hari penutupannya saja.

Siang itu, saya, Dwi, dan mama sengaja bela-belain datang pagi supaya lebih puas, alias bisa berkelilling sampai kaki pegel. Berangkat dengan naik kereta dan disambung dengan taksi, maka sampailah kami dengan sangat cepat di lokasi kejadian.

Benar saja, saking paginya, sampai-sampai pintu belum dibuka. Degan tiket seharga 30 ribu/ orang yang sudah berada di tangan, kami pun mengantri dengan sabarnya.

Ting Tong! tepat pukul 9.45 pagi, persis seperti yang tertera dalam jadwal acara, pintu pun dibuka. Bener-bener on time. Tidak heran orang jepang terkenal akan kedisiplinannya.

Masuklah kami ke lokasi dengan sebuah kipas di tangan yang dibagikan di pintu masuk. Lumayan juga dapat kipas mengingat panasnya udara kala itu.

Karena suasana tidak terlalu ramai, maka kami putuskan untuk menuju panggung utama dan menikmati pertunjukan disana. Tidak disangka, saya takjub dan terkesima, keren bingits kalo kata anak sekarang mah. Maklum baru pertama kali ke JJM jadi agak norak dan lebay.

Ketika acara dimulai, masuklah MC nya. Yang wanita orang Indonesia, yang laki-laki orang Jepang (aktor, penyanyi, MC, host acara TV Indonesia Banget, Translator) yang pernah lama tinggal di Indonesia, namanya Hiroaki Kato.

Bagi saya, si Kato ini cakep bener, dengan gaya rambut panjangnya yang dicepol ke atas dan kostumnya yang casual summer. Kereeen, mirip Zambrotta pemain bola favorit saya. Agak-agak keliatan kaya samurai jepang gitu. Squeeeel.

Ia juga yang menerjemahkan novel Laskar Pelangi ke Bahasa Jepang untuk diterbitkan di Jepang. kalau yang wanita namanya Puti Chitara (Pernah kuliah di Jepang, Penyanyi, MC). Gokil sekali mereka berdua.

Back to the show.

Genderang Jepang Oedo SukerokuTaiko Jakarta. Sumpah keren abis. Saya dan Dwi tidak henti-hentinya mengabadikan pertunjukan ini. Gemuruh suara genderang yang ditabuh dengan piawai ini benar-benar menyentuh relung hati.

Sampai-sampai, saya bilang ke dwi, “Uwieee… ikutan yuuu sama komunitas mereka, biar bisa mukul-mukul genderang kaya gitu. Lumayan buat ngecilin lengan hehehehe.”

Tarian Kochi Yosakoi & Tarian Okinawa Eisa. Tadinya saya pikir, tarian ini semacam tarian tradisional Jepang yang benar-benar tradisional. Ternyata lebih seperti genre pop. Secara, musik yang digunakan lebih catchy dan enerjik. Ditambah lagi, ada kalanya mereka memakai musik soundtrack anime.

Gerakannya sih simple tapi jumlah penari yang banyak membuat tarian ini menarik untuk dilihat. Apalagi di tarian yang terakhir, penonton di ajak untuk ikut bergabung menari bersama. Sayang posisi saya dibelakang para tamu undangan, jadi menyulitkan saya untuk gabung. Padahal kepengen tuh secara dulunya mantan penari jadi-jadian.

Tarian Yosakoi Soran. Nah ini dia. Tarian yang bikin saya penasaran pengen nonton Live. Penasaran karena belum lama ini saya sempat membaca mengenai Festival Yosakoi Soran di Sapporo, Jepang Utara dan menonton tarian ini di youtube. Tarian ini biasanya diikuti oleh puluhan orang hingga ribuan orang.

Telusur punya telusur, Yosakoi adalah tarian khas daerah Kouchi yang menggunakan Naruko, semacam alat perkusi, sebagai alat musiknya sehingga dikenal sebagai Kouchi Yosakoi. Tarian ini pertama kali ditampilkan pada tahun 1954.

Yosakoi Soran pertama kali muncul pada tahun 1992. Jadi, bisa dibilang Yosakoi Soran adalah turunan dari Kouchi Yosakoi. Kalo Kouchi Yosakoi menggunakan Yosakoi Bushi, maka Yosakoi Souran menggunakan Souran Bushi.

Soran Bushi merupakan tarian nelayan yang berasal dari Hokkaido, bagian utara Jepang. Di laut utara, Perahu kayu para nelayan berhadapan dengan gelombang besar musim dingin.

Dalam kondisi seperti itu, mereka menyanyikan lagu Soran Bushi untuk membangkitkan semangat dan membantu mereka supaya terjaga sepanjang malam yang dingin. Makanya ga heran, kalo di setiap tarian akan ada bendera berkibar dengan gambar ikan disana.

Alhamdulillah, bisa lihat secara langsung tarian ini. Keren, kata-kata “SOURAN SOURAN” yang diteriakkan sang penyanyi benar-benar memompa semangat saya.

Setelah menonton tarian Yosakoi Souran yang keren itu. Kami akhirnya beranjak dari panggung utama dan langsung mengambil langkah seribu menuju booth-booth yang ada di JJM ini.

Jadi, kami melewatkan penampilan Ren-Ai Project, No Generation Gaps (NGG) Band, “Nyanyi yuk!” Lomba Nyanyi Indonesia – Jepang, dan Paduan Suara En-Juku.

Sementara itu, JJM ini mulai dipenuhi oleh para pengunjung yaaang sepertinya sebagian besar ABG.

Penasaran seperti apa hujan salju? Ini dia rasanya. Tadi sempat mendengar bahwa akan ada hujan salju di JJM. Hujan salju buatan pastinya. Mesin pembuat salju katanya khusus didatangkan dari Jepang sana. Yah, lumayanlah, bisa merasakan hujan salju, membuat snowman, sampai seluncuran.

Setelah semua booth dikelilingi. Perut mulai meronta-ronta berteriak kelaparan. Tidak sah rasanya kalau ke acara Jepang semacam ini tetapi tidak memakan yang namanya Takoyaki sama Okonomiyaki.

Kami membeli keduanya di booth Osaka Soul Food. Harganya memang lebih mahal dibandingkan booth yang menjual makanan yang sama. Tapi sumpah, worth it.

Enaaaaak. Nomnomnomnom. Dibanding makanan sama yang pernah saya makan. Ini yang terenak. Bikin nagih. Ditambah lagi makan bareng es serut rasa strawberry dan lychee. Segeeeer…

Sudah kenyang, lanjut lagi berkeliling. Semakin siang semakin ramai. Para cosplayer pun mulai berdatangan. Jepret sana jepret sini, para cosplayer laku diminta foto bareng bak diri mereka selebriti.

Termasuk saya dan dwi yang tidak mau kalah ikutan minta foto bareng. Tapi sayang, para cosplayer ini, kalau menurut saya, masih kurang mirip dengan penampakan karakter aslinya. Kalau untuk cosplayer, saya masih takjub dengan yang pernah saya lihat di Motto festival Pluit Village dahulu kala.

Ketika lagi bingung mau ngapain lagi, sayup-sayup terdengar suara nyanyian soundtrack anime. “Kyaaaaaa… ayo kesana wie, ma” teriak saya. Ternyata benar saja, di depan panggung sudah penuh sesak.

Well, it turned out, Jakarta KEI ON is on the stage!

JAKARTA KEI-ON atau Jakarta Keion Club (“Keion”) adalah kelompok band musik yang dibangun oleh beberapa orang Jepang yang tinggal dan bekerja di DKI Jakarta dan sekitarnya. Semua anggotanya bukan musisi profesional, tetapi musisi Amatir yang bekerja sebagai karyawan atau lainnya pada hari kerja.

Mereka menyanyikan lagu kebangsaan yang selalu dibawakan di event yang berbau Jepang. Apa lagi kalau bukan Sobakazu dari Judy & Mary (Samurai X OST) dan Pegasus Fantasy (Saint Seiya OST) yang animenya super booming kala disiarkan di TV Indonesia.

COSPLAY Show oleh CLASH. Cosplay ini lumayan seru. Sayangnya saya merasa lelah setelah semangat ikut bernyanyi, teriak, dan jingkrak-jingkrak bareng jakarta Kei On. Makanya, kami cuma nonton dari jauh sambil duduk dan sekadar beristirahat.

Pertunjukkan yang dipersembahkan oleh DKI Jakarta. Sayangnya, pertunjukkan dibatalkan. Entah apa alasannya. Tapi, namanya juga acara yang diprakarsai orang Jepang, bener-bener disiplin. The show must go on. Jadilah kedua MC mendadak didaulat untuk menyumbangkan 1 lagu. Untung dua-duanya emang asli penyanyi.

Kato menyanyikan lagu laskar pelangi berbahasa Jepang, sedangkan Puti menyanyikan lagunya Ayumi Hamazaki berjudul sakura.  Berhubung sudah seger lagi, kami bertiga merangsek lagi ke depan panggung. Penasaran melihat penampilan Kato dan Puti.

Akrobat lompat tali (double dutch) oleh Fusion of Gambit dari Universitas Ritsumeikan. Well, ini dia hal baru bagi saya. Baru tahu kalau ada yang namanya Double Dutch. Keyeeeeeen. Jadi, sebenarnya, seperti hiphop dance, hanya saja memakai props 2 tali yang diayun.

Intinya, mereka ngedance sambil main lompat tali. Anggota team Fusion of Gambit ini cakep-cakep, mirip orang Korea.

Kelompok “Lagu-Lagu-Kai.” Oke, kalo yang ini, sesuai banget sama mama. Akhirnya ada juga yang genrenya cocok sama mama. Kelompok orang Jepang yang sudah kakek nenek yang menyanyikan lagu-lagu Indonesia. Bukan sembarang lagu Indonesia loh, melainkan lagu wajib, lagu nostalgia sampe lagu daerah.

Lagu-lagu yang mungkin sudah jarang juga dinyanyikan sama anak jaman sekarang. Yang bikin haru apa coba? Para penonton yang notabene sebagian besar anak muda, ABG, tidak beranjak dari depan panggung. Kita semua mengapresiasi mereka. Sudah seperti menonton kakek nenek sendiri.

Galaxy Jazz Band. Ini dia penampilan terakhir yang bisa kami tonton karena harus pulang untuk menjenguk om yang habis operasi di RS. Karena saya suka jazz , begitu pula dengan mama, berat rasanya meninggalkan penampilan mereka.

Jadilah diputuskan kami mendengarkan 1 lagu saja. Pas banget suasananya. Sudah sore, mulai mendung, mulai berangin, ditemani alunan musik jazz. Adeeeem rasanya.

Aaaaaah… akhirnya selesai 1 lagu. Dengan berat hati kami harus mengakhiri keseruan hari ini. Sayang sekali tidak bisa mengikuti sampai selesai. Penasaran sekali dengan yang namanya Bon Odori. But it’s okay, there will always be another chance. Next Year maybe.

So, we said goodbye to Jak-Japan Matsuri 2014. Meskipun melewatkan penampilan Mr. Kuriya Makoto, Angklung, Mikoshi, Jrocks, JKT 48, pesta kembang api, dan Bon Odori. Bisa dibilang kami sudah sangat puas. Dijamin bakal balik lagi tahun depan.

So, Mari Maju Bersama Bergandeng tangan!

From Joseon Gunman to The Night Watchman

Here I am, finally typing again. Not a story, not a picture but another kdrama soundtrack. Well, I did a little bit addicted to kdrama and kpop. Trust me, just a little bit refused to admit  Of all kdrama that I currently watch, there are this 2 drama that got me hooked after a loooong suffering trying to move on from The Heirs * what can I say, the heirs have been imprinted in my heart * which are Joseon Gunman and The Night Watchman.

So, I’m quite surprise, that I follows these 2 drama, even before the episodes are completed. Just for your info, I usually wait until the drama ends then started to watch it * just couldn’t handle the hardly breath couldn’t sleep cos of waiting for the next episode, experience it while watching Flower boy next door, Queen In Hyun’s Man, Cheongdamdong Alice, and The Heirs. *

Usually, if I follows them with the status of “ongoing kdrama”, that means I love every part of them including their OST. Now, let me get this straight, here I am, with all these lovely OST from Joseon Gunman to The Night Watchman. So far, most favorite are Ali (Flower through the rock) and EDEN (a new hope).

Kuroko’s Basketball (Kuroko No Basuke)

kuroko's no basuke

Judul: Kuroko’s Basketball (Kuroko No Basuke)

Manga: Kuroko No Basuke

Genre: Shounen, olahraga, komedi, sekolah

Jumlah Episode: 25 episode

Disiarkan: 8 April 2012 – 22 September 2012

Karakter:

  • Kagami taiga
  • Kuroko tetsuya
  • Midorima

Pengisi Suara Anime Kuroko’s No basuke

Sinopsis:

Kuroko No Basuke menceritakan seorang pebasket bernama Kuroko yang memiliki keyakinan tersendiri terhadap Basket yang dia mainkan. Ketika SMP, Kuroko tergabung dalam tim basket sekolahnya, yaitu Teiko Middle School Basketball Team. Tim ini telah memenangkan kejuaraan basket selama 3 musim berturut-turut. Tim ini terdiri dari lima pemain yang disebut-sebut sebagai Generasi Keajaiban (Miracle Generation). Namun, ternyata, dibalik keberhasilan 5 pemain tersebut, ada 1 lagi pemain yang keberadaannya tidak terlalu dikenal namun sangat dihormati oleh 5 pemain tersebut. Dan pemain ke-6 itu adalah Tetsuya Kuroko.

Cerita bermula ketika Taiga Kagami, yang baru saja kembali dari Amerika, bersekolah di SMU Seirin. Ia bergabung dengan tim basket Seirin bersama dengan Kuroko.  Pada awalnya kagami menganggap remeh Kuroko karena permainan basket Kuroko biasa-biasa saja. Bahkan keberadaan Kuroko bagaikan ‘hantu.’ Tidak semua orang bisa merasakan kehadirannya. Akan tetapi, hal ituah yang menjadi kekuatan Kuroko. Ia bisa mengoper bola basket tanpa disadari oleh pihak lawan.

Setelah bertemu dengan Kagami, Kuroko memutuskan untuk mendukung Kagami menjadi pemain basket terbaik. Kuroko merasa apa yang ia cari selama ini, ada dalam diri Kagami, ada dalam Tim Basket Seirin. Ia memutuskan untuk menjadi bayangan Kagami. Mereka kemudian berjanji untuk bahu-membahu memenangkan pertandingan dan mengalahkan ke-5 orang anggota Generasi keajaiban.

Review:

Kuroko no Basuke termasuk ke dalam daftar manga terlaris tahun 2012 mengalahkan Naruto. Oleh karenanya saya sangat tertarik ketika mendengarbahwa ada versi animenya. Bagi saya yang memang menyukai anime dan manga bergenre olahraga, komedi, dan sekolah, kuroko’s no basket merupakan salah satu anime yang wajib ditonton. Ceritanya yang umum disertai dengan kelucuan-kelucuan tokohnya, dan juga trik-trik basket yang ‘unik’ membuat saya bertahan menonton anime ini. Tentu saja, trik-trik basket yang ditunjukkan mungkin tidak bisa dilakukan dalam dunia nyata. Bahkan bisa dibilang, lebay. Namun, menurut saya, itulah yang menjadi daya tarik anime ini.

Secara umum, orang akan membandingkan Kuroko’s no basket dengan slam dunk. Tipikal pemain yang sama dan ambisi yang sama pula. Tapi entah kenapa, kesan pertama saya adalah anime ini mirip dengan Prince of Tennis. Tentu saja bukan dari segi Olahraga yang dimainkan, tapi lebih kepada penggambaran dan penampakan tokoh-tokohnya. Juga dari segi kekonyolan dan hal-hal mustahil yang mereka lakukan ketika berlatih. Yang jelas, anime ini sangat menghibur saya. 2 jempol untuk anime ini!

Saya juga menyukai pemikiran Kuroko. Dia percaya bahwa bakat bukanlah segalanya. Dalam pertandingan basket, bakat memang memegang peranan penting, tetapi kerjasama dan kepandaianlah yang membuat suatu tim bisa memenangkan kejuaraan. Kuroko percaya bahwa, tim yang kuat tidak akan bisa menang jika tidak ada kerja-sama diantara mereka. Itulah sebabnya ia mengundurkan diri dari Tim basket Teiko karena ia merasa, setiap pemain hanya bermain secara individual, dan hanya demi memenangkan pertandingan. Mereka melupakan kerjasama dan kesenangan pada saat bermain basket.

  1. Can Do – Granrodeo (OP ep. 1-13)

• Choi Yuna (Jung Kyung Ho)
• Kang Min joo (Seo Ji Young)
• Oh Deul Hee/ Ibu Yuna dan Moo Hyuk (Lee Hye Young)

Sinopsis:

Cha Moo Hyuk adalah anak korea yang diadopsi oleh keluarga Australia. Sejak itu, ia besar dan tinggal di Australia. Namun sayang, Moo Hyuk mengalami penganiayaan oleh orang tuanya dan kemudian hidup sebagai gelandangan. Moo Hyuk selalu percaya bahwa suatu hari ia akan bertemu dengan ibunya, ibu yang dipercayainya hidup di Korea dalam keadaan tidak mampu sehingga terpaksa membiarkan dirinya di adopsi. Bahkan ia berjanji suatu hari akan kembali ke Korea dan membahagiakan Ibunya.

Suatu hari, nasib mempertemukannya dengan seorang gadis dari Korea bernama Eun Chae. Eun Chae bekerja sebagai coordinator untuk Choi Yuna, penyanyi terkenal di Korea, yang diam-diam dicintainya sedari kecil. Pertemuan keduanya ini, ternyata hanya sebuah awal dari sebuah kisah di antara mereka. Pertemuan inilah yang nantinya memengaruhi kehidupan EunChae. Bukan hanya Eun Chae, tetapi juga kehidupan Yuna dan keluarganya.  Karena dalam perjalanannya, terungkap bahwa Keluarga Yuna adalah keluarga kandung Moo Hyuk.

Cerita semakin menarik ketika Moo Hyuk divonis dokter bahwa hidupnya paling lama tinggal 3 bulan lagi. Mengetahui hal ini, Moo Hyuk berusaha mencari Ibu Kandungnya. Namun kenyataan yang ditemuinya, membuat kerinduannya berubah menjadi amarah dan dendam. Disinilah kehadiran Eun Chae menjadi berarti, karena dia berhasil mengubah hatinya.

“Moo Hyuk: Eun Chae, maafkan aku, tetapi bersama denganmu membuat aku merasa Tuhan tidak adil padaku. Dan membuat aku tidak rela menerima takdirku. Ketika melihatmu, aku menjadi ingin hidup lebih lama. Padahal, hidupku sudah tidak lama lagi.”

“Moo Hyuk: Kepala batu, Mianhanda…. Saranghanda…

Review:

Kdrama ini salah satu kdrama yang tidak pernah bosan saya menontonnya. Bahkan, mama saya yang jarang sekali menonton drama korea dari episode pertama sampai episode terakhir, rela menemani saya melahap habis drama ini. Beliau pun masih mengingat ceritanya hingga hari ini. Drama ini juga yang membuat saya semakin jatuh hati dengan akting So Ji Sub setelah drama ini, saya jadi berburu kdrama yang dia perankan.

Ceritanya yang unik, pemeran yang tepat, dan akhir cerita yang tragis namun tidak mudah ditebak, membuat saya semakin menyukai drama yang satu ini. Ceritanya, So Ji Sub berperan ganda, menjadi dua orang dengan nama yang berbeda, tetapi sebenarnya sama. Tidak hanya sampai di situ, kisah hidupnya yang bisa dibilang tidak bahagia dan juga kerinduannya terhadap sosok seorang Ibu kandung sekaligus kebenciannya teradap ibunya tersebut, serta penyakit yang dideritanya, membuat para penonton terlebih lagi saya tidak mudah untuk melupakannya.

Ditambah lagi, ada sosok adik kembar yang menderita keterbelakangan mental dan keponakan laki-laki yang lucu nan pintar. Rasanya baru kali ini saya melihat drama korea yang banyak tokohnya dengan cerita yang tidak membosankan dan melebar kemana-mana. Ditambah ending-nya yang sediiiiiiiiiiiiiih banget, plus OST yang sesuai banget dengan cerita di dalam drama. Bisa dibilang, drama ini menawarkan paket lengkap. Satu kata untuk drama ini: Total!!!

Drama ini juga dibuat versi animenya. Bagi saya yang memang menyukai drama ini, tentu saja versi animenya juga menarik perhatian saya.

Ketika mereka melakukan perjalanan, Joon Sang sempat menyelamatkan Yu Jin dari kecelakaan. Sejak saat itu, hubungan mereka menjadi lebih dekat. Namun, keadaan dan nasib tidak mengizinkan cinta mereka untuk bersatu. Di malam ketika mereka janji untuk bertemu, Joon Sang mengalami kecelakaan dan dikabarkan meninggal. Sejak itu, ia menghilang dari kehidupan Yu Jin. Sepuluh tahun kemudian, nasib mempertemukan kembali Yu Jin dengan seseorang yang mirip dengan Joon sang yang bernama Min Hyung (beda di gaya rambut sama wardrobe aja sih, tapi saya suka Bae Yong Jun sebagai Min Hyung). Sejak itu, Yu jin, yang masih sangat mencintai Joon Sang, mulai berharap bahwa Min Hyung adalah Joon Sang.

Sharing:
Bagi saya, winter sonata menjadi kdrama pertama yang membuat saya jatuh cinta terhadap musik dan lagu-lagu korea. Bisa dibilang, sejak nonton drama ini, saya jadi mulai deh ‘hunting’ lagu-lagu korea. Setelah saya dapet OST Winter Sonata, OST drama ini resmi jadi ‘teman seperjalanan’ saya keliling beberapa tempat di Jawa. Bahkan, saya inget banget, pas saya di Bromo, saya beli syal (secara di bromo, dini hari pula, dinginnya broooo) terus saya pake layaknya Bae Yong Jun make syal di Winter Sonata sekalian saya dengarkan OST Winter Sonata disepanjang perjalanan saya ke puncak Bromo (Malu juga kalo saya inget sekarang).

Tapppppi, bukan hanya OST yang membuat saya tidak bisa melupakan drama ini, melainkan juga Sosok Bae Yong Jun itu sendiri dan juga jalan ceritanya. Saya rasa karisma Bae Yong Jun di drama ini masih terbawa hingga sekarang. Contohnya saja, saya pernah membaca sebuah artikel mengenai Bae Yong Jun di mana ceritanya Bae Yong Jun ketemuan sama Kim Hyun Joong (SS501, Boys Before Flower) di suatu kafe entah di Korea atau di Jepang (lupa mode on). Nah, Di kafe itu, coba tebak, siapa yang dikerumuni dan dimintai foto bareng juga tanda tangan. Tidak lain dan tidak bukan adalah Yong-sama alias Bae Yong Jun, sementara Kim Hyun Joong merasa terheran-heran. Bayangin deh, Kim Hyun Joong yang notabene idola anak zaman sekarang, yang cakep itu, yang suaranya juga ga jelek-jelek amat. Ck ck ck ck, kalah pamor sama Yong-sama. Segitu besarnya ya pesona Bae Yong Jun.

Anyway, sangking terkenalnya Winter Sonata, pada akhirnya dibuat versi manhwa (komik korea) dan anime (kartun jepang). Kerennya lagi, pengisi suara anime-nya adalah pemain aslinya. Dan ending ceritanya pun dibuat happy ending banget. Seperti yang kita tahu (yang udah nonton), ending versi kdrama agak menggantung, seperti belum selesai. So, kalo pengen nonton yang happy ending banget, coba deh liat versi anime, dijamin tidak akan rugi deh (yah, kecuali fakta bahwa Yong-sama sudah lebih tua dari pada ketika dia main versi dramanya)

The Legendary Awesome Bboy Crew: ICHIGEKI

The Legendary Awesome Ichigeki showcase from BOTY 2005

For me who is not living as a dancer * but at least, in the past I did some lessons and performances for dancing and tried to did it again during my college but failed to continue * but I really enjoying them, whether just dance in the room, with my little student (not that complicated dance though), or just watched it in youtube or live performances.

So when I accidentally encountered these awesome guys from Ichigeki through youtube, I was like, OMG, they are awesome. Then came to my mind, what if I continue to dance back then? What if I had known about bboying things back then?  Will I seriously continue to dance? Well, But that is just a random though. I guess, everyone already had their life planned by God and already made choice for the path of their life.

Best showcase BOTY 2005

OK, that is OOT aka out of topic. Back to Ichigeki. Ichigeki was Bboy crew from Japan. They first show off to the world was back in the 2002 Battle of The Year (BOTY 2002). Then, 3 years later, they once represented Japan in BOTY 2005. Their performance in the final showcase was unforgettable by people who already watching it and considered as the best showcase ever seen in the history of BOTY * at least for me, it was * Even though they did not won the first place, but they did awarded as 2nd place and as The BEST Showcase for that year.

BOTY 2005 awards: 2nd place and Best Show

Sadly, this is their last performance with full members. They decided to disband after this BOTY because of their own reasons. Even so, I still believe that they are not literally disbanded as Ichigeki will always be in their heart. They even said that they are family and won’t stop being a bboy.

In my point of view, the way they show off in that BOTY was a perfect ending for them. They pour out all of their emotion, art, skill, musical feeling, act, and off course bboying into the show. They emerge themselves into the dance itself. It was like I can see them dance with all their heart and bring the best out as a crew. Just like they said in planet bboy vid, they can show their true self during the show without thinking about the outcome. They think that it will be fun and excited to dance at the big stage like BOTY.

Me, myself, had already watched their showcase in youtube * it will be hard to see them live nowadays since they disbanded, right? * for countless time, I even downloaded it. And gosh, I still got the same emotion every time. Can’t keep myself to admire them and that force me to write about them here. Just so, it will remind me of them in later years in case I’ve forgot when I’m getting older.

Some of the song used in the 2005 show:

  • Hardnoise – untitled

  • DJ Binhtendo – numb

Btw, As far as I know, the music was arranged and mixed by Katsu. It was said, that Katsu was the core of Ichigeki. He spending his life for dancing. During BOTY 2005, in Planet Bboy vid, his brother support him, want him to be strong mentally. What I love is what his mother said, that she want him to express his love for dancing without thinking about winning with greed. What a wonderful love send from mother to a son.

While Katsu’s dad, died three years before BOTY because of a liver tumor. Initially he wanted him to finish school and keep dancing as a hobby. They did not speak much when the father was still alive, but Katsu, before leaving Japan to take part in the BOTY 2005 in Germany, visits his father’s grave vowing to enjoy every moment of the experience because he knows his father will be watching over him. And he did enjoy it * just look at his dance in the showcase, like being posses in his own world then pull thousands of audience there into his world *

Katsu and family in his family’s green tea shop.

Katsu is still known worldwide until now for his innovative and emotional style of breakdance. And now, he is a part of Band known as 1.G.K. This band known for fusing techno, drum and bass, filter disco and break beats with the energy of club music and the passion of rock, describing as digital groove rock. I’m going to talk about 1.G.K in another time. Right now, it’s just ICHIGEKI.

Hooked by Korean Drama “The Heirs” Original Soundtrack

the heirs ost

So, after I watched The Heirs episode 12. Can not help myself to stop heard the OST. Actually it’s been replaying in my head. I’ve been hooked, definitely. Whether I listen to it from my hand phone or not. Crazy. I may say that this drama OST is one of the best. I mean, all the OST so far is amazing and really fit to the storyline. Some drama, not just kdrama, only couple of their OST could catch the viewer and listener heart. But this drama OST really captured lots of people who watched and listen to its OST. I probably in my fangirl mode, kdrama lover mode.

As far as I remember, the last time I am being like this is when I watched Queen In Hyun’s Man and it’s already long before. And for your info, I’m not so into Lee Min Ho * am I weird?, cos I believe there were lots of people who really fall into his charms. *

So, when I first watch this drama, I am not in my fangirl mode at all. All I expected is to watch a drama full of eye candy and lighthearted high school life * turned out to be wrong. It is a very thoughtful and deeper drama * just as a way to relax my brain and mind from everyday routine.

But, after watched from one episode to another, damn, I gradually turn back into my fangirl mode. And the OST, keep replaying them in phone. And after finished watching the drama, I am officially became MinShin shipper (MinShin = Min Ho & Shin Hye).

Be The Light by One Ok Rock

So here is the song that really encourages me to be the “light” in someone darkness. To make our life more meaningful by helping others in pain and others who lost their hope. One Ok Rock is a band from Japan, one of many that I adore, not for their physic but for their woks. Their song and their music, especially when they are doing it acoustic or live * try to watch here *

We often heard the word ‘light’ use in many occasion. In this case, light, means hope. There will always hope in our life. Even after the hardest things happened in our life. Just like the song lyrics “Yesterday’s night turns to light,
Tomorrow’s night returns to light.” And that is a promise. Whatever happened, night will turn into day where there is light.

So, lets start being others light. Look out your surround and see who still in the darkness, and be the one who light the darkness.

Be The Light

Just the thought of another day
How did we end up this way
What did we do wrong?
God

Even though the days go on
So far, so far away from
It seems so close

Always weighing on my shoulder
A time like no other
It all changed on that day
Sadness and so much pain

You can touch the sorrow here
I don’t know what to blame
I just watch and watch again
O…

Even though the days go on
So far, so far away from
It seems so close

Even though the days go on
So far, so far away from
It seems so close

What did it leave behind?
What did it take from us and wash away?
It may be long
But with our hearts start a new
And keep it up and not give up
With our heads held high

You have seen hell and made it back again
How to forget? We can’t forget
The lives that were lost along the way
And then you realize that wherever you go
There you are
Time won’t stop
So we keep moving on

Yesterday’s night turns to light
Tomorrow’s night returns to light
O… Be the light

Always weighing on my shoulder
A time like no other
It all changed on that day
Sadness and so much pain

Anyone can close their eyes
Pretend that nothing is wrong
Open your eyes
And look for light
O…

What did it leave behind?
What did it take from us and wash away?
It may be long
But with our hearts start a new
And keep it up and not give up
With our heads held high

Yeah, yeah…

You have seen hell and made it back again
How to forget? We can’t forget
The lives that were lost along the way
And then you realize that wherever you go
There you are
Time won’t stop
So we keep moving on

Yesterday’s night turns to light
Tomorrow’s night returns to light
O… Be the light

Some days just pass by and
Some days are unforgettable
We can’t choose the reason why
But we can choose what to do from the day after
So with that hope, with that determination
Let’s make tomorrow a brighter and better day

You’re The Only by Masatoshi Ono (Sho)

By Masatoshi Ono, himself

By Sho with Galneryus

So, this week song will be Japanese song, represent by a song which is oldies but an everlasting one. The title is “You’re The Only…” This is a single from Masatoshi Ono * now, he is known as Sho, vocalist of a Japanese Band called Galneryus * This song also used as an OST for Dorama (Japanese drama) titled Anything for you (Kimi no Tame ni Dekiru Koto). A dorama that is very worth to watch * make me cry a river back then everytime I watch it, even when I only hear the song *

The story line is very good, the ost is very touching, and the ending is very warm also heartbreaking. It kinda reminds me of “Ghost” movie. Eventhough I don’t really understand Japanese language (I only understand some words or sentences that usually been used in manga or anime), but I love this song so much. Very romantic and nostalgic. Here you go, the lyric

Mayonaka kimi to futari

Sunahama nami no shirabe

English Translation Lyrics

On the sand dunes with you at midnight…

The melody of the waves…

When we look at the sky, see, There’s a chandelier of stars.

I love you tonight I wish time would stop …

A shooting star sparkles;

I want to tell you how I feel right now.

We’ll be this way forever;

I want to hold you strongly and fly away.

Your sparkling eyes Only reflect me

My song for you, just only you…

I’ll love only you.

The sea, unusual for this season, Leaves only memories…

The two of us, snuggling up close, see, Are like swaying diamonds.

I love you tonight I only want to be with you…

My heart is shining;

I want to make my wish come true right now.

You’ll be my angel forever;

We’ll chase after the same dream.

My shining eyes See every bit of you

My song for you, just only you…

I’ll only look at you.

We’ll be this way forever;

I want to hold you strongly and fly away.

Your sparkling eyes Only reflect me

My song for you, just only you…

I’ll love only you.

This is my song of the week. Me and family is having a hard time to collect fund for our new house. Sometimes, we felt that it is impossible to get such amount of money in a month. But we keep our faith in God, that there wil be a way if we show some effort, that everything will be alright.

The song that encourage me to be positive. The song that comforts me that everything will be alright… alright… and I believe it will be.

So keep rewind this song in my head while actually singing it.

All stress aside, it’s my time to shine
I did my 9 to 5, I’m glad that I’m alive
Step into the club, I roll through like I’m the man
Because I am, with the master plan, haters looking at me like damn

Wanna kick dirt up on my name, crush my life and all it’s dreams
Yet I feel so fresh, so clean when I step into the scene
Through the smiles and frowns, ups and downs, high and lows going all day and all night
Perfect timing, man it’s so right, my moment is here, I’ll be alright

Feels like there’s something trying to tell me, everything is gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
But I can’t help but look over my shoulders, just to know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(And I have no privacy)
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(Tell me is it just a dream)

The stars are out I’m a take my place
Because I have way more then what it takes
And all the people behind wanna’ see me break
But from all my mistakes, I’m feeling great
Never will I call it quits, start scratching my head and be known for the one who flakes
Do the do the 2 step I got moves to make
I’m alright, alright, I’m straight
But I’m a have to keep it real cause’ some things will never change
The same thought that be playing in my brain

Feels like there’s something trying to tell me, everything is gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
But I can’t help but look over my shoulders, just to know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(And I have no privacy)
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(Tell me is it just a dream)

Put your hands up
A little higher, higher
Put your hands up
Put em up, put em up, way up in the sky

Feels like there’s something trying to tell me, everything is gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
But I can’t help but look over my shoulders, just to know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(And I have no privacy)
I always feel like, somebody’s watching me
(Tell me is it just a dream)

I Admit, I am a Huge Fans of Anime and Manga

background manga blog

Some of my fav.

Who don’t know Anime and Manga, Right? But, liking them, that is another question. In Indonesia, during my old days, manga was called as comic. Actually, it is very different with the real ‘comics.’  It usually published from Japan or Korea. The readers are wide range, from children to granny or grandpa. Why? Because sometimes, they started to read and watched it since they were a child an continued until they get older. There is no age limit for this kind of “fans” Take me for example.

Strawhat Pirates (3)Even though there are some people out there who look down on us. Just because they thought that manga or anime is a childish things, made people forget reality, induced laziness and other and other.

Even I’ve encountered such people. All I need is proved them that they were wrong. And they will kept silence. For instance, be a person who love manga and anime but still had good grades at school and still had lots of friends out there.

Anyway, I think it depends on the person. For me, manga and anime is a symbol of hard work and art. Can you imagine how many people involved during the making of anime? How much talent needed just to make it into one. Or even how many efforts to be made to make them published or on air.

So, how come, some people think shallow about manga and anime? I guess, it is just because they yet to understand it or yet to try like it.

I, myself, love manga and anime because I always got some good lesson it. I could learn the language (Japanese language), learn history I had not known before because sometimes, there are anime or manga based on real history, found great quotes (from the character), or even other positive things such as friendship, hard work, self confidence, dare to dreams, and etc.

qa7kiz8aSo, how come I’ve become one of the anime and manga “fans”? Well, have you ever heard about Doraemon or his ‘immortal’ friend Nobita? I said immortal because he never aged since it was first aired on TV.

You can say that Doraemon is the first manga and anime in my life. Back then, I was amazed with Doraemon pocket. I mean, you can get all you want from there, and for me as a child, it was pretty amazing.

Since then, I don’t know how many mangas I’ve been read and how many animes I’ve been watched.
anim09For manga, I have a little history with it. It started during my school days. At first, I borrowed it from friends, which I usually read it during school hours. I put it inside the textbook or read it under the table… hehehe… please don’t imitate me.

Then, I asked my dad (RIP) to buy it every time we went monthly shopping. When once a month is not enough, I decided to save my pocket money and bought it.

Later on, when there was a manga rent shop, I just kept going there. Until finally, technology understand me. Ups, I mean I understand technology.

Now, I just need an internet connection and bam! It’s all there to read and watch.

The famous Hana Yori Dango

The famous Hana Yori Dango

Oh, by the way, from manga, sometimes they turned it into anime or vice versa. Next on, from anime or manga, they turned them into drama or movie.

Remember Hana Yori Dango? Just named it. Start from manga to anime to Taiwanese drama (Meteor Garden). Followed by Dorama/ Japanese drama (Hana Yori Dango). Also, K-Drama (Boys Before flowers).

As far as I remember, here, in Indonesia, there was also a drama adapted from it, but I totally forgot what the title of the drama is. And it’s all started from a MANGA! WOW! Just WOW!

So, if you like manga and anime, it is absoulutely okay to continue liking it and admit it. Just don’t forget, there are many kinds of manga and anime. Read and watch appropriately as your age.

Just for reminiscence, these are some of manga and anime I’ve been read and watched and the list still continued on till now.

  1. Air Gear

Korean Fever

background kdrama

Nowadays, Korean fever have influence people all over the world, including my own country, Indonesia. For me, Korean culture already touched my interest since I was teenager.

But that day, the fever was not as big as now. As I recall, back then, I even hardly found friends who I can share about it. So, my interest back then, only kept for myself.

Although it’s understandable. I’ve grown up surrounded by Indonesian Culture and American culture with a little touch of Japanese Culture.

Especially for music and fashion, I was so into American and Japanese. Mostly, I listen and watch American music and dramas, also anime (Japanese cartoon). Even the book I mostly read was Japanese comic known as manga.

As from my own country culture, I was infected by the music, Dangdut, and the traditional dance, such as Jaipong. Although all these was my late father doing.

He gave us freedom to enjoy other cultures, but he always made us remember our own culture. He ‘forced’ us to watched lenong, wayang, or even dangdut performances.

In return, he bought me cassettes or video of my favorite artist, such as, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi etc. He ‘pushed’ me to learn Jaipong dance, which I thanked him for pushing me for doing it.

He occasionally took us to places related to Indonesian culture, for instance, to the Museum, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, gallery or Taman Ismail Marzuki, and sooo many more, that I couldn’t even remember.

But, I guess, his efforts is not wasted. I am, right now, not forget my own culture, and even more proud of it.

Ok, back to Korean fever. Now, everywhere, everytime, I could hear about Korean. Whether its music, fashion, dramas, movies, make up, accessories, artist, even its own country.

Truthfully, I am so happy, since now I have many friends who I can share about it. And I think it is quite good, Since they also came from Asia continent. And now, we have more choices, not only America or Europe.

For me, I rather have positive attitude towards these new trends. I mean, we could learn something positive from it. If Korean can do it, why can’t we? Maybe one day, I could read someone writing about Indonesian fever. It is not something impossible, right.

Anyway, If I like Korean culture, it doesn’t mean I’m so into Korean that I am no longer Indonesian. I may have a crush with Korean culture that sometimes reflected in my everyday life, but inside my heart, I am still, definitely, Indonesian.

And still hoping for Indonesia to be much better than other country, someday. So, since right now, Korean fever is all around the world, why don’t we get infected and join the fun.

Start by listen to their music (click here to listen) and watch their awesome dramas (click here to find the drama you want), then join one of the forum (click here to join), and I’m pretty sure you’ll end up being infected soon.

PEACE!

Sneak Peek at Motto Festival 2012

At Saturday, October 13, 2012. I went to Pluit Village to see Motto festival. It was a loooong journey to get there, since I live in another part of Jakarta.

Thank God there is busway, so I just need to take 2 vehicle to get there. And finally, after almost 2 hours trip, I was in the BIGGEST J-INDO Band Festival.

img_0994img_1012After some window shopping in Pluit Village. I felt absolutely hungry. Look around and decided to eat takoyaki. Since I love cheese, I pick Cheese takoyaki. Rp. 15.000 for 6 pieces takoyaki. While it was very hot, I impatiently ate one of them. Waaa… it’s definitely a bad idea. But then, I enjoyed eating, especially the octopus slice inside it. LOVE IT!

For you who still don’t know, yet. Takoyaki or octopus balls is a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special takoyaki pan. It is typically filled with minced or diced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion. It brushed with takoyaki sauce, then sprinkled with green laver (aonori) and shavings of dried bonito or cheese (just like the one I ate). 

After that, I try this tea called Prendjak Tea. Apparently, this tea is produced in Tanjung Pinang. It has quite different taste with some tea that I already tasted before. Kind of Unique. Especially when I drink it cos I am very thirsty. 2 big cups of these tea still not enough for this hot sunny day.

While we were enjoying our food and drink, some band performed on stage. Then, it was time for COSPLAY COMPETITION.  Cosplay,  short for “costume play,” is a type of performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea.

Then suddenly, the venue was crowded. I hardly sneaked into the crowd to get in front of the stage. Prepared to capture great moments of cosplay performances.

img_0955 img_0960 img_0965 img_0975 img_0981 There was also a battle between the cosplayer.

img_0966 Now, these looks like some meccha costume. I wonder how they made those costume. It’s not broken eventhough they made such a movement. Not to think that it was a very hot day. It must be pretty hard and hot wore those costume.

img_0950 img_0988 img_0998 img_1004And last but not least, it was the end of the cosplay performances. And I decided to go home. Remember, my house is far away from Pluit. Even so, I am pretty delight with this festival. So excited being there. Hoping there will be more of these kind of festival. And hopefully I could be there, again.
