25 Film Bagi Para Penikmat Fashion

Event Jakarta Fashion Week (JFW) 2016 sudah di depan mata. Event tersebut akan berlangsung di Senayan City dari tanggal 24 Oktober – 30 Oktober 2015. Jadi, dalam rangka menyambut JFW 2016, pas banget rasanya kalau saya posting sesuatu bertema fashion. Apalagi kalau bukan mengenai film * secara saya penikmat segala macam tontonan, termasuk film. *

Sepanjang saya menonton sebuah film, salah satu aspek yang saya perhatikan adalah wardrobenya alias pakaian, aksesoris, attitude, dan teman-temannya yang sering kali disebut sebagai fashion. Terlebih lagi jika disepanjang film tersebut kita dimanjakan dengan berbagai macam kostum yang indah dan unik. Makanya, bukan merupakan hal yang aneh lagi jika wardrobe para aktor dan aktris sebuah film terkadang menjadi ikon atau trendsetter fashion.

So, these are 25 movies worth to watch for their fashion * according to me, off course. do please remember, I am not one of those fashion expert out there. *  Jadi dari sekian banyak judul film, berikut ini 25 film yang menurut saya perlu di tonton buat penyuka fashion seperti saya.

1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Siapa yang tidak mengenal sosok Audrey Hepburn, seorang aktris yang terkenal tidak hanya dari aktingnya tapi juga hatinya. Sosok Audrey Hepburn di fim ini, dengan semua pakaian yang ia kenakan menjadi salah satu tren di dunia fashion. Di film inilah, “little black dress” pertama kali mendunia dan gaungnya terdengar hingga saat ini.

2. Heather (1988)

Kalau ingin tahu bagaimana tren fashion remaja SMU tahun 80-an, film ini merupakan pilihan. And oh, I am a big fan of Winona Ryder, well, not that it is important to know.

heather 5 heather1 heather3 heather4 heathers2

3. An Education (2009)

Sebelum orang mengenal sosok Carey Mulligan booming melalui film The Great Gatsby. Saya telah lebih dulu mengenalnya melalui film ini. She is transform from highscool student into such a classy lady. I love all her dress, her coat, her glove, her accessories in this movie.

4. Clueless (1995)

Ah. I grew up with this movie. I love Alicia Silverstone during my teenage. Makanya pas banget ketika film ini tayang, saya langsung jatuh cinta sama semua pakaian yang ia kenakan. Film clueless ini juga ada versi dramanya. Jadi tidak heran jika film ini menjadi salah satu tren fashion di era 90an, terutama untuk anak remaja kala itu. I mean, who doesn’t want to be Cher?

clueless1 clueless3 clueless4 clueless5

5. Devils Wears Prada (2006)

Dari judulnya saja ada kata Prada, sudah jelas film ini ‘berbau’ fashion. Bagaimana tidak, film ini bercerita tentang kehidupan seorang asisten editor sebuah majalah fashion terkenal di dunia. Anne Hathaway dan Meryl Streep sense of fashion in this movie really blow my mind off.

Belum lagi fakta bahwa tokoh Andrea yang dimainkan Anne, pada awalnya adalah wanita ‘biasa.’ * Well, we even could call her “dork” thinking that she is working in fashion world * Film ini membuat para wanita percaya bahwa kita bisa menjadi seperti Andrea if we get the right job, the right clothes, and the right advice * hehe, that is solely my subjektif thinking. *

6. The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Here is my bias Matt Damon. Menonton film ini karena Damon in it. But, again, fall in with love all the wardrobe in it.

7. Annie Hall (1977)

This is an iconic movie. I am deeply fallen for Annie’s (Diane Keaton) quirkiness. Film ini berhasil memperlihatkan fashion style of a smart, chic, and yet quirky eccentric women. This movie shown how men’s clothing and baggy looks perfect in women too.

8. Blow Up (1966)

Mengingat film ini mengenai kehiduan di sekitar fotografer fashion, maka tidak heran jika pastinya, kita disuguhi dengan banyak sekali hal-hal yang berhubungan dengan fashion.

9. Breathless (1960)

Oooh, I love this movie. Suka banget sama film ini karena aktrisnya berambut pendek * lebih dikenal dengan nama pixie-cut style. I even tried this kind of hairstyle on me .* She looks so chic. Ditambah lagi dengan pakaian yang dikenakannya, yang kebanyakan berpola garis-garis alias stripe * which is also one of my favorite patterns. *

10. Funny Face (1957)

Film di mana kita dimanjakan oleh gaun-gaun nan indah yang dikenakan oleh Audrey.

11. Klute (1977)

All I can remember from this movie is Jane Fonda’s knee-high boots * and I really want one back then. *

12. Mary Antoinette (2006)

Secara pribadi, saya selalu suka dengan segala seuatu yang berhubungan dengan Mary Antoinette. Bisa dibilang, kisah sejarah yang membawa nama Mary hingga saat ini  meninggalkan bekas yang mendalam dalam ingatan saya. I love her story life.

Ketika film ini akan tayang, jelas saya sudah membayangkan indahnya gaun-gaun yang akan bermunculan. Dan ketika tayang, benar saja, saya dimanjakan dengan gaun-gaun khas ratu Prancis die ra itu, dengan berbagai warna pastel yang membuat saya berdecak kagum. Not to mention, Kirsten Dunst in it * love all her work since Jumanji till now. *

16. La Dolce Vita

17. Casino

Di film ini, saya mengenal bahan sequin * yang mahal itu * Sharon Stone terlihat sangat classy, elegan, mewah dengan gaun sequinnya.

18. Paradise Kiss

Siapa yang tidak tahu mengenai Fashion style orang-orang Jepang. Ratusan gaya dan tren mode bermunculan dari berbagai kota di Jepang. Sebut saja, harajuku style, mori girl style, lollita style, dan banyak lainnya.

Oleh karenanya, tidak heran jika banyak film Jepang yang menjadi tren dalam hal fashion. Salah satunya yang paling membekas di ingatan saya adalah film ini. Berawal dari manga, anime, lalu ke film. It’s all about fashion.

19. Royal Tailor

Saya akui kalau saya memang pecinta drama korea, namun tidak dengan film-film mereka * walaupun ada beberapa yang saya suka juga. * Jadi, jangan heran kalau 1 film dari Korea masuk ke dalam list saya ini.

Royal Tailor adalah sebuah film yang membuat saya terpukau dengan baju tradisional Korea yang disebut hanbok. Belum lagi, Park Shin Hye yang notabene aktris Korea favorit saya, yang mengenakan pakaian tersebut, semakin membuat saya jatuh hati dengan hanbok.

Salah satu hanbok yang menurut saya paling indah di film ini adalah hanbok berwarna Gold yang dikenakan Shin Hye dengan anggunnya ketika ia menghadap sang raja di sebuah pesta kerajaan.

20. Coco Before Chanel (2009)

Sepertinya film yang satu ini tidak perlu panjang lebar dibahas. Just look at the title. Chanel! what an iconic brand in fashion world.

23. Sex and The City (2008)

No words to describe this movie since its pretty musch about their sense of fashion. Sebelum saya megenal film ini, saya terlebih dahulu mengenal drama serinya. Tidak terlalu terarik pada awalnya mengingat budaya AS jelas jauh berbeda dengan budaya Indonesia.

Tapi, melihat dari aspek fashion, I’m in love with this movie. Kita benar-benar dimanjakan dengan pakaian-pakaian indah, branded, dan mix n match yang keren. Belum lagi, nilai plus dari film ini, yaitu mengenai friendship between 4 of them, really make me envy.

24. The Great Gatsby (2013)

Film yang diangkat dari sebuah novel ini memberikan visual yang benar-benar indah. Kita dimanjakan dengan berbagai gaun cantik berwarna nude dan pastel yang dikenakan oleh Carey Mulligan * I love her. *

25 Boyband Tahun 90-an Yang Pernah Menghiasi Hidupku

Ketika saya sedang menonton drama korea Yongpal, tiba-tiba muncul sepenggal lagu yang dinyanyikan oleh boyband Westlife * Yongpal memutar lagu tersebut dari HP-nya untuk Yeo Jin. *. Sejak saat itu, entah mengapa, saya jadi mengubek-ubek database mp3 hanya sekadar untuk mendengarkan semua lagu Westlife. Rasanya, nostalgia banget.

Di saat anak-anak remaja, ABG, alay, atau apalah sebutan anak muda jaman sekarang lebih menggandrungi boyband asal negeri ginseng, Korea dengan aliran musik mereka yang terkenal sebagai Kpop, saya dengan bangganya ingin memproklamirkan bahwa saya dengan ini, lebih dulu mengenal Boyband daripada kalian semua * hahaha, terus kenapa coba. * Tapi, boyband jaman saya dulu tentu saja didominasi oleh boyband besutan Amerika atau Eropa, terutama Inggris * Saat itu, MTV sedang dalam masa kejayaannya di Indonesia. Sehingga saya terekspos dengan banyak musik barat asal US dan UK. *

Kalau boyband jaman sekarang identik dengan yang namanya ketampanan alias kegantengan para anggotanya * suara mah nomor ke berapa kali ya, yang penting kemasan luarnya, * boyband jaman saya tumbuh besar dulu didominasi juga sama yang namanya ketampanan dan kegantengan.

Nah loh, apa bedanya coba?

Letak perbedaannya adalah tingkat ketampanannya. Kalau jaman dulu kayanya Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Nick carter, Ronan Keating, Robbie Williams, Justin Timberlake itu udah pool bangets guantengnyah. Kalo diliat anak jaman sekarang palingan mereka dibilang biasa aja kali ya, atau bahkan culun kali ya * maklum beda generasi, beda tren, beda style. * Maklum aja sih, boyband jaman sekarang emang saya akui cakep-cakep bener anggotanya, bahkan kadang lebih cakep ketimbang saya.

Anyway, setidaknya bagi saya, mereka cakep semua * buktinya saya sampai menempel poster mereka dikala saya muda belia kekekeke. *

1. New Kids On The Blocks (1984)

nkotb

Ini adalah boyband pertama yang saya kenal. The one and only, NKOTB. Anggotanya Donnie Wahlberg, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, Danny Wood, Joe McIntyre. Boyband terkeren sepanjang masa. Siapa coba yang ga kenal “step by step. oh baby… ” Aaah… very nostalgic. My bias in this group is Jordan and Joey * kyaaaa… fangirling mode: ON *

Check this: Step by step, Tonight

2. All 4 One (1994) AS

all 4 one

Jamie Jones, Delious Kennedy, Alfred Nevarez, dan Tony Borowiak. Ini adalah salah satu boyband yang menjual suara dibanding tampang. Jujur, saya cuma kenal 2 lagu dari grup ini. Lagu yang paling terkenal adalah “I swear” sampai-sampai kayanya ini lagu sering dipakai pada saat acara ‘nembak,’ pernikahan, sampai prom night karena liriknya yang bikin klepek-klepek. This song still remain in my playlist until now.

I swear….by the moon and the stars in the sky… I’ll be there, for better or worst, till death do us part. I’ll love you with every beat of my heart and I swear.”

Check this: I swear

3. Boyzone (1993) Inggris

boyzone

Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, dan Stephen Gately (RIP). Di jamannya, boyband ini cukup merajai di dunia. Saya pribadi masih mendengarkan puluhan lagu mereka hingga saat ini. Teramat cintanya saya sama mereka, sampai-sampai saya setia mengikuti kiprah si vokalis utama Ronan Keating yang bersolo karier. Dunia saya sempat runtuh ketika Stephen mengakui bahwa dirinya Gay, dan semakin runtuh lagi ketika Stephen meninggal dunia di tahun 2009.

4. Backstreet Boys (1993) AS

backstreet boys

Keep The Backstreet Pride Alive!

Nick Carter, Kevin, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, dan A.J is the Backstreet Boys. I don’t think they ever been forgotten. Pertama kali mengenal boyband ini, yang ada dipikiran waktu itu cuma, “Ya Allah, ganteng-ganteng banget” dan orang-orang ganteng ini bilang, “I’ll never break your heart…” * huhuhuhu melted * Alhasil, poster mereka memenuhi dinding kamar saya saat itu juga. My bias in here, definitely Nick and Kevin * meskipun porsi menyanyi si Kevin sangat minim. *

Check this: I’ll never break your heart, as long as you love me.

5. NSYNC (1995) AS

nsync

Here come the amazing NSYNC! I can write pages about them.

Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, dan Justin Timberlake are my men. Saat saya mengira kalau Backstreet Boys is the best that I have, datanglah NSYNC. Ini adalah boyband pertama yang membuat saya benar-benar terkagum-kagum. Satu-satunya boyband yang semua anggotanya menaklukkan hati saya * I don’t have specific bias here since they all great.”

Betapa tidak, bagi saya mereka adalah cikal-bakal boyband-boyband KPOP saat ini. Boyband yang menawarkan paket lengkap, mulai dari wajah, penampilan, suara, musik, dance yang sinkron, koreografi, outfit, dan musik video. Benar-benar sebuah paket lengkap. Sampai-sampai saya selalu tidak mau ketinggalan setiap kali TV menyiarkan konser mereka secara LIVE, hanya karena they are the best when they are LIVE.

Bahkan ketika di MTV ada acara yang namanya Battle of Boybands antara Backstreet Boys dan NSYNC, I definitely chose them as the winner * sorry BSB, doesn’t mean that I don’t love you though. Cos I do.

One last thing. Ini adalah boyband yang melahirkan Justin Timberlake * walaupun Justin sudah terkenal bahkan sebelum ia bergabung dengan NSYNC. * Tapi, boyband inilah yang membuat namanya makin mendunia dan dicintai jutaan gadis belia termasuk saya, sampai saat ketika saya mengetik tulisan ini * I am a die hard fan. *

Check this: Bye Bye Bye, Tearin’ up my heart, This I promise you.

6. Hanson (1992) AS

hanson

Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson, dan Zac Hanson is not literally a boyband * tapi dari kacamata saya yang masih remaja saat itu, mereka tampak bagai boyband. * Saya memang bukan penggemar berat berat mereka. Tapi, mau tidak mau saya jadi suka lantaran teman sebangku saya ketika SMA * sebut saja namanya Erry * tergila-gila sama yang namanya Taylor Hanson.

Sampai-sampai yang dibicarakan selalu saja Taylor. Sampai-sampai nama belakangnya ditambahin Taylor Hanson. Sampai-sampai mengaku-ngaku kalau dia adalah istrinya Taylor * OMG. * Sementara saya, sering minder sama si Taylor karena dia lebih cantik daripada saya T_T

Check this: Mmmbop, I will come to you.

7. The Moffats (1990) Kanada

the-moffatts-b2a3a4a2-8c16-4ea4-9123-4a85ed94ad88 the moffats skrg 2

Scott Moffatt, Clint Moffatt, Bob Moffatt, dan Dave Moffatt. Uh huh, another siblings as a band. The moffat sebenarnya lebih merupakan band daripada Boyband karena mereka semua bisa memainkan alat musik, sama seperti Hanson. Daya tarik mereka * selain lagunya tentu saja * adalah kenyataan bahwa ada kembar 3 digrup mereka. I mean, kembar 3, identic pula, super mirip. Jadi, ketika band ini muncul dalam hidup saya, saya merasa mendapat durian jatuh, 3 orang sama gantengnya disatu grup * what a treat. *

Check this: I’ll be there for you, Miss you like crazy.

8. 98 degrees (1995) AS

98 degrees

Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, dan Jeff Timmons.  “You’re my sunshine after the rain… ” is some of lyrics from their song. Bagaimana tidak meleleh coba dengernya. I love all their song. Meskipun gaungnya tidak terlalu terdengar di dunia * kecuali untuk Nick Lachey yang pernah menikah dengan Jessica Simpson, * but they will remain in my playlist ’till now.

Check this: Because of you, Invincible man.

9. Westlife (1998) Irlandia

westlife

Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Nicky byrne, Mark Feehily. Pertama kali mendengar lagu swear it again langsung suka. Awalnya bukan karena mereka boyband * mengingat era boyband sudah mulai memudar saat itu. kecuali untuk NSYNC dan BSB yang memang merajai dunia, * tapi memang karena lagunya yang mellow dan mudah dicerna. Selain NYSNC dan BSB, mungkin westlife lah boyband yang hampir semua lagunya saya punya dan suka hingga saat ini. Not just 1 or 2 song, I mean, lots of songs.

Jujur, my bias here is Mark. Akan tetapi, hati saya hancur berkeping-keeping ketika ia mengumumkan bahwa dirinya adalah gay T_T. Sejak saat itu, saya tak sanggup melihat musik video ataupun poster mereka * maklum, hati remaja macam saya saat itu masih teramat rapuh. *

Check this: Swear it again, Fool again, uptown girl.

10. Plus One (2000) AS

plus one dulu plus one skrg 1

Nate Cole, Nathan Walters, Jason Perry, Gabe Combs, dan Jeremy Mhire. Saya tidak terlalu tahu mengenai boyband ini. But one thing for sure, saya suka banget sama lagu mereka Last flight out.

Check this: Last flight out

11. Boyz II Men (1988)

boyz II men

Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, dan Wanya Morris. Wohoo, ini adalah boyband veteran. Tidak ada yang tidak kenal Boyz II Men. Grup hitam manis bersuara emas. All their song are amazing. Bahkan sampai sekarang, banyak lagu-lagu mereka yang masuk ke dalam everlasting love song dan masih sering diputar di radio maupun di TV.

Check this: I’ll make love to you, A song for mama, water runs dry.

12. Color Me Badd (1987) AS

color me badd

Bryan Abrams, Mark Calderon, Sam Watters, dan Kevin Thornton.Ini juga salah satu boyband veteran. Lagunya yang close to heaven sangat terkenal di Indonesia, sampai-sampai dibuat versi plesetannya sama P-project dengan judul Kop dan haden.

Check this: Close to heaven, Remember when.

13. Take That (1990) Inggris

take that

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen, dan Robbie Williams. Okay, who don’t know Robbie Williams who make a hit with ‘Millenium’ and “Something stupid” with pretty Nicole Kidman. Ini dia boyband yang melahirkan yayang Robbie ke dunia entertainment.

Ini adalah boyband yang teramat sukanya sampai saya relakan menabung uang jajan untuk membeli kasetnya * yup, kaset ya, tau kan kaset kaya apa, bukan CD loh. * Jatuh cinta sama suaranya Gary Barlow dan tentu saja sama yayang Robbie. Love all their songs, especially in their first album.

Check this:  Pray, Never forgetBack for good

14. Code Red (1996) Inggris

Code Red

Phillip Andrew Rodell, Neil James Watts, Lee John Missen, dan Roger Ratajczak. Not really remember about them, just that I still have their songs in my PC and still listening to it till now.

Lagu: Can we talk

15. Blue (2000) Inggris

blue

Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan, dan Simon Webbe. Here come another era of boyband. Pertama kali dengar lagu Blue yang “all rise” saya langsung ter-wow. Maklum, suaranya bagus, pembagian suara di antara mereka bagus banget. Lagu mereka yang mellow, R & B, sedikit Hip Hop, pokoknya musik jaman sekarang banget, berhasil menarik hati penggemarya di Indonesia kala itu. Apalagi lagunya yang bareng Elton John ” sorry seems to be the hardest words, ” keren banget. Sedih sih, tapi keren banget.

Check this: All Rise, One love

16. 911 (1995) Inggris

911 dulu

Check this: The day we find love

17. O-Town (2000)

Check this: Liquid dreams, All or nothing

18. A1 (1998) Inggris – Norwegia

Paul Marazzi, Christian Ingebrigtsen, Mark Read, dan ben Adams. Not quite remember also about them. But the song ‘like a rose’ is quite remembering.

19. Caught In The Act (1992) Belanda

caught in the act dullu caught in the act skrg

Lee Baxter, Benjamin Boyce, Eloy de Jong , dan Bastiaan Ragas. Not quite remember also about them, except for the fact that Eloy de Jong had relationship before with Stephen Gately (RIP) from Boyzone. The song called “babe” meskipun lagu lama yang dirilis ulang, cukup menarik perhatian.

Check this: Baby comeback, Babe

20. East 17 (1991) Inggris

music-east-17east 17 skrgJohn Hendy, Terry Coldwell, Robbie Craig, Brian Harvey, dan Tony Mortimer. Boyband ini salah satu favorit saya juga.

I think I just really love the beat.

Check this: All around the worldEach time

21. Blackstreet (1991) AS

blackstreet dulu blackstreet skrg

Not really a fan of them, but I do love all their song. “No digitty” is one of my all time favorite. Bahkan ketika lagu tersebut dicover oleh penyanyi lain pun, saya tetap suka. Satu lagi yang ngehits banget adalah “In a rush.” Lagu ini cocok banget buat kamu yang lagi jatuh cinta dan ingin mengekspresikan cinta kamu ke orang yang kamu suka * tsaaaaah terbang melayang *

It came over me in a rush when I realize that I love you so much,  that sometimes I cry but I can’t tell you why, why I feel what I feel inside…”

Check this: No diggityIn a rush

22. Get Ready (1995) Belgia

25. C21 (1998) Denmark

C21 C21 skrg

Søren Bregendal, Esben Duus, dan David Pepke. Ini kasusnya sama seperti pertama kali saya kenal Get Ready. Got hook with this boyband just because they are not coming from US or UK. Sementara selama ini kebanyakan boyband berasal dari kedua Negara tersebut. Makanya ketika boyband ini muncul, kesan pertama yang muncul adalah penasaran, ” wow, dari Denmark.

25 Korean Drama Based on Manga/ Manhwa/ WebToon/ Webcomic

We have seen lots of Manga, Manhwa (Korean Manga), Webtoon, or Webcomic made into live action dramas in many countries especially countries in Asia. Sometimes, these drama is better than the original itself. But, there are also some that really out of our expectation and made us stop watching it after few episodes.

The good thing about these kinds of dramas are, we already know the story so we won’t be tortured to wait next episode when it airs. Also, we already can imagine all the cast looks like and how would they act. The bad thing is we already had our own imagination and expectation about the story and the cast, so if it not fit into ours, then somehow it will ruin the drama.

Here are 25 Kdrama from manga/manhwa/webtoon/webcomic I have tried to enjoy * although I must say, I am not quite enjoy all of them. Since I drop off the drama after few episode *

25 Cemilan yang Kurindukan

Sebagai seorang yang mengalami hidup di tahun 90-an tentunya ada masa-masa di mana saya menengok ke belakang. Bernostalgia dengan segala kenangan di masa lalu. Salah satu yang masih membekas di benak saya adalah cemilan di kala itu.

Kalau sekarang mungkin anak-anak terbiasa dengan cemilan fast food, cemilan yang lebih modern atau bersih macam pocky, nori, breadtalk, Hershey, snickers, toblerone, dan banyak lainnya. Saya dulu dimanjakan dengan jajanan yang murah, enak, banyak, dan unik * walaupun kalau sekarang dipikir lagi sepertinya jajanan kala itu kurang bersih dan menyehatkan. Tapi justru di situlah uniknya. :p *

Coba, siapa yang belum kenal cemilan yang saya rindukan di bawah ini. Jajanan yang saya kategorikan extinct (alias punah) or endangered (terancam punah). Mungkin sebagian masih bisa kita temukan sementara sebagian lagi mungkin sudah hilang tergilas zaman.

1. Anak Mas

Siapa generasi-90an yang tidak kenal anak mas. Makanan wajib saat jam istirahat di sekolah. Mie kering yang crunchy ditambah bumbu yang asin dan menggugah selera. Di jamin bikin ketagihan. Bagaimana tidak, entah berapa banyak MSG di dalamnya.

2. Wafer Superman

Ah, superhero yang satu ini memang sangat terkenal sepanjang waktu. Wafer andalan saya dahulu kala. Kalau ada jalan-jalan dari sekolah * dulu namanya studi tur * wafer yang satu ini tidak ketinggalan sebagai bekalnya. Secara dulu, wafer merk Tango belum muncul di kehidupan saya.

3. Permen karet Yosan

Oke, permen karet itu satu hal yang paling common. Bisa dibilang tiada hari tanpa permen karet. Apalagi ketika novel, film, dan sinetron Lupus lagi booming-booming nya. Ga cool kalo ga makan permen karet dan ga bisa buat balon dari permen karet. Kenapa permen legandaris Yosan? Karena Lotte belum dikenal * udah ada belum ya waktu itu? * Selain itu, entah kenapa, saat itu, kami suka sekali dengan ide, ada huruf-huruf dibalik bungkus permen karet yang kalau kita kumpulkan menjadi tulisan YOSAN maka kita bisa menukarnya untuk mendapat hadiah yang dijanjikan. Entah kenapa saat itu hampir setiap anak berlomba-lomba mengumpulkan sampai bersedia tukar-menukar dengan teman. Kalau sudah terkumpul, bangganya setengah mati walaupun seingat sya, kami tidak pernah bisa mengumpulkan penuh tulisan YOSAN. aneh.

4. Tic tic

Sebagai salah satu jenis dari ciki-cikian di jaman itu. Tic tic menjadi favorit anak-anak, selain saingan terberatnya si chiki balls.

5. Coklat ayam jago

Kalau anak sekarang kenalnya silverqueen, toblerone, Hershey, dan coklat keren lainnya. Jaman saya dulu, coklat ayam jago menjadi coklat terenak di dunia. Kalau saya pikir lagi, kenapa ya namanya ayam jago? Apa hubungannya sama coklat ya? * sekali lagi, aneh. *

6. Jagoan neon

Kala itu, permen yang ada gagangnya jadi salah satu tren. Kayanya keren banget kalau hanging out sambil makan permen bergagang. Nah, siapa coba yang tidak mau jadi jagoan, jagoan neon! * apa coba * Jadi, uniknya permen ini, kalau kita makan, maka lidah kita akan berubah warna. Saya ingat, favorit saya adalah warna biru. Sehabis makan biasanya, dengan bangganya, kami akan saling menjulurkan lidah dan melihat lidah siapa yang paling berwarna * oh my god, aneh banget, sumpah. *

7. Chicklets

Kalau permen karet satu ini, rada keren namanya untuk di jaman itu. rasanya yang manis dan warnanya yang berwarna-warni semakin membuat permen ini jadi buruan anak-anak. Setiap pergi sekolah, chicklets tidak ketinggalan selalu ada di dalam kantong baju.

8. Magic Pop

POP! Aha, ini dia salah satu favorit saya sepanjang masa. Permen jebakan buat temen-temen yang belum pernah makan ini permen. Betapa tidak, ketika si butiran permen masuk ke dalam mulut, bercampur dengan saliva di dalam lidah, tiba-tiba… “pletak pletak pletak pletak..” serasa ada percikan petasan di dalam mulut kita. Sakit, enak dan nagih, itu rasanya.

9. Coklat choyo-choyo

2d264-20140508_212255

Coklat ini dulu biasa dijual di abang-abang yang nongkrong di depan sekolah. Sehari bisa makan sampai banyak. Bisa saling tukeran tasting rasa juga sama teman-teman. Ah, saya ingat lidah saya pernah luka gara-gara sendoknya yang memang pinggirannya tajam.

10. Harum manis/ Rambut mak lampir

Ini salah satu cemilan yang sampai sekarang Alhamdulillah masih available. Abang-abang penjualnya masih suka berkeliaran di jalan-jalan walaupun tidak sebanyak dulu. Suka banget sama ini. Rasanya yang manis dicampur kepingan yang crispy terus lumer kalau dimakan. Enak.

11. Permen kaki hot hot

Satu lagi permen gagang yang HOT di jamannya. Permen bentuk kaki yang rasanya pedes. Kalau makan permen ini seperti tes keberanian. Ga semua temen dulu berani makan ini. Kalau sekarang, agak aneh saya melihatnya, kenapa coba bentuknya harus kaki? Seperti menjilat-jilat kaki. * Hiiiy joorroookk! *

12.Permen Rokok

Permen rokok salah satu yang tenar. Anak cowo maupun anak cewe semangat banget makannya sambil  bergaya bak orang merokok. Wow, dipikir ulang, saya dan teman-teman dulu seperti sedang diajarin merokok sedari kecil, di sugesti, dan dibiasakan melihat juga merasakan rokok. Walupun itu cuma permen rokok. Mungkin itu salah satu alasan kenapa jadi banyak teman-teman saya yang akhirnya menjadi perokok beneran.

13. Gulali

Siapa ga kenal jajanan satu ini. Gulali yang bisa dibentuk sesuai permintaan kita. Ada yang bentuk hewan, sikat gigi, love, sampe peluit yang beneran bisa bunyi. Dibuat manual dengan si tangan abang-abang yang entah dia cuci tangan atau tidak sebelum melakukan aksinya * waktu itu, ga jadi masalah buat saya dan temen-temen. * Belum lagi, kalau yang peluit bisa bunyi beneran loh, setelah abangnya coba. Oh God, abangnya coba!!! kenapa dulu saya tidak memikirkan sampai ke situ ya. Yah, yang penting enak. Pendek kali pikiran saya kala itu.

14. Kue cubit setengah mateng

Mungkin dinamakan kue cubit karena pas mateng diangkat dan dibalik seperti kita lagi mencubit. Aih, imut ya namanya. Rasanya juga enak. Kalau versi yang dijual di sekitaran sekolah pastinya standar. Entah terigu apa, susu apa, dan mesis apa  yang digunakan. Apalagi kalau kita pesannya yang setengah matang. Hmm… itu berarti kan terigunya belum matang ya, berarti tidak sehat ya. Whatever. Sampai sekarang kue cubit ini masih bisa ditemukan di Mayestik.

15. Permen Mr. Sarmento

Permen ini sebenarnya biasa saja. Cuma dulu namanya begitu ear-catching. Dalam sekejap saja, langsung popular dikalangan anak-anak sekolah.

16. Kue Ape/ Kue T***

Kue yang bagian tengahnya bak gunung menjulang  atau t*** ini masih jadi cemilan favorit saya sampai sekarang. Terkadang sengaja menyempatkan ke Mayestik cuma untuk menikmati kue ini. Yummy.

17. Es potong

Sekarang, anak-anak mengenal es krim walls, campina, dll. Dulu, selain es kenyot yang jadi es andalan anak-anak sekolah. Ada yang namanya es potong. Es ini dipotong dan ditusuk pakai lidi. Terakhir saya makan es ini ketika Pameran Peralatan Tempur TNI AD. Saya begitu surprise ketemu sama abang-abang penjual es ini sampai-sampai semangat 45 untuk beli dan tidak lupa minta foto bareng sama abangnya.

18. Si janggut naga

Si janggut naga ini sudah lamaaaa sekali saya tidak melihat keberadaannya. Dahulu, abang-abang sering seliweran di depan rumah atau dekat sekolah. Sampai sekarang, saya belum pernah lihat lagi. Penasaran banget untuk merasakan lagi cemilan yang satu ini.

19. Permen susu

Siapa yang belum pernah coba permen ini? Dulu, satu-satunya permen yang bungkus dalamnya bisa ikutan dimakan. Kalau tidak salah karena terbuat dari beras or something. Sempat hilang dari peredaran karena diketahui mengandung bahan berbahaya bagi kesehatan pemakannya. Sekarang, permen ini sudah banyak beredar lagi. Walaupun saya masih takut untuk memakannya lagi.

20. Coklat Payung

Slah satu jenis coklat yang juga tenar dijamannya. Like I said before, kayanya sesuatu yang bergagang saat itu jadi tren. Jadilah, coklat berbentuk payung ini jadi cemilan paling dicari.

21. Permen tac

Permen dengan berbagai rasa buah. Bentuknya juga kecil-kecil sehingga hemat jika memakannya. Dulu, saya dan teman-teman biasanya saling bertukar permen supaya bisa tahu berbagai rasanya.

22. Super Zuper

Super zuper ini dulu booming banget. Tapi, entah kenapa, saya bukan penggemar beratnya. Walaupun ikutan beli dan makan, biar ikutan tren ceritanya.

23. Es goyang

Digoyang maaaang! Es goyang yang sampai sekarang masih beredar di jalanan. Hanya saja sekarang, toppingnya sudah lebih beragam, mulai dari coklat, mesis, coco crunch, permen dll. Kalau dulu, pilihannya cuma 1, coklat saja. Itupun coklat yang rasanya agak pahit tapi bikin nagih.

24. Es gabus

5074859_20130114045436

 

Kyaa, ini es favorit saya. Es yang kalau kita makan rasanya seperti memakan gabus * kaya udah pernah makan gabus aja ya saya * Tapi sumpah, dulu demen banget ama ini es, sampe-sampe bisa beli banyak untuk nyetok di kulkas.

25. Es tung tung roti tawar

Last but not least. Es tung-tung yang dimakannya bukan pake cone tapi pake roti tawar. Es ini muncul sebelum es potong Singapura yang harganya sedolar itu booming di kalangan anak sekarang. Ide dasarnya ya seperti es potong Singapura. Cuma bedanya, esnya masih di-scoop * namanya juga es tung-tung, * bukan dipotong. Pilihan rasanya pun terbatas, vanilla, coklat, dan strawberry saja.

25 Gundam (TV) Series Engraved in My Memory

As I promise. Some of you might wonder why I am not include Gundam in my anime list. It is simply because I had them special in my heart. Too many gundam series that I watched that had left me a different kinds of impression. Too hard for me to choose only just one.

unicorn banshee

I love gundam. Suka banget sama Gundam. Mulai dari serial TV, OVA, Movie, OST sampai ke robot Gundam plastik itu sendiri. I was captive by Gundam since my brother asked me to watch Gundam Seed series with him. Since then, I definitely hooked by it. Start to dig in my brother collection of Gundam series, movie, ova and watched some of them. I even help him to assemble Gundam that he bought from Mangga 2 at that time. What an unforgettable experience. I guess I have to thank him for bring me into the world of Gundam Planet.

For those of you who don’t know what gundam is better surf about them. Here is one of my favorite site to feed my curiousity and interest about Gundam, http://blog.gundamplanet.com. Basically, Gundam is a metaseries of Japanese anime created by Sunrise studios that features giant robots (or “mecha”) called “Gundam”.

For me, Gundam is still the best anime in terms of mecha. In fact, Mobile Suit Gundam is said to have pioneered the real robot era of mecha anime. And I believe it too. As you can see, Gundam first appeared in 1979 * long before I born into this world * and still continued until now. How long it has been? Wow! just Wow!

Nah, bagi yang belum pernah nonton Gundam, coba deh nonton 25 Gundam anime pilihan saya. Siapa tahu you’ll be captivated as much as I am. For details review, browse http://www.anime-planet.com. Nanti saya coba translate ke bahasa * nanti ya, kapan-kapan :p *

Oh btw, the OST also very awesome, almost all the OST.

25 Korean Drama Made Me Cry a River

I do love drama * been saying that repeatedly in lots of my other post * in case you still don’t know. And I had to admit that kdrama had a big part of why I love drama. they are really good to turned my emotion up and down, just like experiencing rollercoaster. Sometimes, it made me tired, emotionally.

Especially when it comes to tragis or sad drama. Which they are expert on that * after i watched so many drama from other country, I guess Korean people still the best in portraying sad or tragic scene * The tragic here means, one of the lead end up dead, both lead were dead, or second lead which I hardly ship more than the lead is dead * forgive me for adding this term of tragic on my own since sometimes I cheer for the second lead more. Sometimes, I said :p * In the end, It was NOT a happy ending nor the one that keep us wondering whether it was a happy or sad ending.

So, here are 25 kdrama that made me cry a river * suddenly, Justin Timberlake song was playing in my mind * Get yourself prepared with whole bunch of tissue when you decided to watched them. But, let me remind you, Spoiler Alert for those who dislike spoilers.

1. I’m Sorry, I love you (2004)

So Ji Sub as Cha Moo Hyuk
Im Soo Jung as Song Eun Chae
Jung Kyung Ho as Choi Yune
Seo Ji Young as Kang Min Joo

For heaven’s sake, hands down for this drama with 16 episodes. THIS is the one and only, the most SAD and TRAGIC drama I’ve ever watched. Not only in the whole kdramaland, but in the whole dramaland.  It was sad, emotionally tiring, depressing, that it made my heart and head hurts so much * lebaaay * I cry a river through all episodes. Adding more, is the original soundtrack, very touching and sad too.

It’s about a man who thrown away from his family to another country, separated with his twin, being left out by his love life, took bullet for the woman he love, had the bullet stuck in his head, hate by his real mother * because his mother didn’t know he is her son * spent his life for revenge, envy with his so called brother, and feeling guilty for the new love he found that he decided to leave her because he didn’t want her to be sad. In the end, he died alone in Australia and donate his heart for his so called brother * huaaaa T_T *

What is even more sad is, the woman he love, followed him. She suicide in his grave. She wrote some letter before she suicide,

“Even when I was living, he was lonely. So, I couldn’t leave him alone like that. Just this once in my life, I’m thinking of myself and living for myself. I’ll accept any punishment that comes. Song Eun Chae.”

  • where is the tissue, please….  * after I watched this drama, life is never be the same * lebaaay *

Pertama kali nonton drama ini, bener2 nyesek di hati. Sampe sekarang belom ada yang bisa gantiin drama ini sebagai drama ter sedih dan tertragis sepanjang masa at least for me 4 thumbs up for both of the lead.

2. Stairway to heaven (2004)

Kwon Sang Woo as Cha Song-ju
Choi Ji Woo as Han Jung-suh
Kim Tae Hee as Han Yu-ri
Shin Hyun Joon as Han Tae-hwa

Baek Sung Hyun as young Cha Song-ju
Park Shin Hye as young Han Jung-suh/Kim Ji-su
Lee Wan as young Han Tae-hwa/Han Chul-su
Park Ji Mi as young Han Yuri

A 20 episode drama full of sadness. Since childhood until they grown ups. The female lead is very suffered. I fell in love with Park Shin Hye in this drama eventhough she is only appeared as a child female lead * since then, I am officially following all of her drama * If you looking for a drama with cinderella them * with step mother and evil sister * unforgotten first love, accident, amnesia, and involved a cancer inside.

This is definitely the perfect one. Just when all the storms finally wash out and we think they finally get together happily ever after then here comes cancer that wake us all from the happy ending dream. She died and he is living his lonely life. What a cruel life indeed.

3. Endless Love or An Autumn Tale (2000)

Song Seung Hun as Yun Joon Suh
Song Hye Kyo as Yun/Choi Eun Suh
Won Bin as Han Tae Suh
Han Na Na as Shin Yu Mi
Han Chae Young as Choi/Yun Shin Ae
Choi Woo Hyuk as young Joon Suh
Moon Geun Young as young Eun Suh

In Indonesia, I guess only a few people who love kdrama who still don’t know this one. It was one of the first drama invaded our country back then. Booming if I must say. This is the starter or what we called Korean fever in Indonesia. Even I was collected any kind of merchandise about Won Bin * back then long time ago *

The story is kind of cliche typical korean drama. 4 lead whose life tangled together. Unforgotten first love. Unrequited love for the second lead. A suffering life of the female lead. Last but not least, a fatal disease of the female lead, which is in this case is Leukemia * like her life is not miserable enough * Cry bucket of tears back then * because it was my first time watched kdrama and I haven’t met MISA (I’m Sorry I love you).

How can it not be sad or tragic if I may say. Eun Suh died because of her sickness. Then in the end, Joon Suh was hit by a truck. Only God know if they reunited in heaven or not. In this drama also, first time I ship the second lead more than the first lead. I just love Won Bin here :p

4. Bad Love (2008)

Kwon Sang Woo as Kang Yong Ki
Lee Yo Won as Na In Jung
Kim Sung Soo as Lee Soo Hwan
Kim Ga Yun as Kang Joo Ran

A 20 episode of tears for Yong Ki portrayed by Sang Woo.

5. Damo (2003)

Ha Ji Won as Chae-Ok
Kim Min Joon as Jang Sung-Baek
Lee Seo Jin as Commander Hwangbo

A 14 episodes of amazing skills of Ha Ji Won as a damo. At first, I felt sad because I thought Chae Ok will have a tragic love with Sung-baek. I thought they love each other. Well, they indeed love each other until they discover that they are long lost siblings. While they status is opposite to each other. Damo tried to rescue his brother * he is a rebel while damo is a detective * but it was just too late. He died.

6. Hwang Jin Yi (2006)

Ha Ji Won as Hwang Jin Yi/ Myung Wol
Shim Eun Kyung as young Hwang Jin Yi
Kim Jae Won as Kim Jung Han
Wang Bit Na as Bu Yong
Ryu Tae Joon as Baek Kye Soo
Jang Geun Suk as Kim Eun Ho

A 24 episodes of beautiful clothes, dance, and music and of course sadness. I cried for Jin Yi everytime. Poor her, for not being able live happily with the one she loves. Eun Ho, her first love is dead just before they ran away together. Then she fell in love again with Jung Han, but then lost her baby due a complicated situation between them. And there in the end, she let him go and live alone as a Gisaeng. * Huhuhuhu * Jin Yi, why can’t you be happier.

Bae Yong Jun as Damdeok / Hwanwoong
Yoo Seung Ho as young Damdeok
Lee Ji Ah as Sujini / Seoh
Shim Eun Kyung as young Sujini
Moon So Ri as Seo Ki Ha / Kajin
Park Eun Bin as teen Ki Ha
Park Sung Woong as Jumuchi
Lee Philip as Cheoro
Lee Hyun Woo as young Cheoro

I always love Bae Yong Jun as an actor since Winter Sonata. So, 24 episodes of this drama definitely catch my attention. Actually it is not ‘that’ tragic. it just, so sad to see the leads love life. In first few episode, we will see how sad it is when he had to killed his own wife. His crying make my heart ache. Later, his love life with Sujini, make my heart cry out loud. In the end, the not end up together  *I’m not sure what happened to damdeok *

8. Empress Ki (2013)

Ha Ji Won as Ki Seung Nyang / Empress Ki
Hyun Seung Min as Seung Nyang (young)
Joo Jin Mo as Wang Yoo / King Choong Hye
Ahn Do Gyu as Wang Yoo (young)
Ji Chang Wook as Ta Hwan / Emperor Huizong of Yuan

A 51 episodes worth watching and heart wrenching. here, the second lead finally got the heart of the first female lead * yeaayyy * Eventhough it end up tragically. Here, I feel you, Ta Hwan. How you really want Seung Nyang to love you back, even until the end of your life. Which she did love him back, but it was just too late. T_T

9. Fashion King (2012)

Yoo Ah In as Kang Young Gul
Seo Young Joo as Young Gul (Young)
Shin Se Kyung as Lee Ga Young
Kim Sae Ron as Ga Young (young)
Lee Je Hoon as Jung Jae Hyuk
Kwon Yu Ri as Choi Anna

A 20 episodes of not so tragic or sad drama actually. But it end up with Young Gul death anyway, so I consider it as tragic. Not to mention, his death is… hmm… I can’t find a word to describe it. it just that, it really is a bad way to end this drama. He was happily enjoying himself in the pool * or spa * then “bang” someone killed him, shot him to death.

10. Sad Love Song (2005)

Kwon Sang Woo as Suh Joon Young / Choi Joon Kyu
Yoo Seung Ho as young Suh Joon Young and then as his son
Kim Hee Sun as Park Hae In
Kim So Eun as young Hae In
Yun Jung Hoon as Lee Gun Woo
Kim Yeon Joo as Cha Hwa Jung
Go Ah Sung as young Cha Hwa Jung

Even the title already give a vibe of sad or tragic if I may say. then there were 20 episodes to convey the title. this time, Sang Woo will be the one who die * remember stairway to heaven? * his love story with Kim Hee Sun is so complicated that it make our heart drown in pain * lebay *

11. Ja Myung Go (2009)

Lee Young Yoo as Lee Young Yoo as Ja Myung
Park Min Young as Princess Ra Hee
Jin Ji Hee as Ra Hee (child)
Jung Kyung Ho as Prince Hodong
Kang Soo Han as Hodong (child)
Yeo Jin Goo as Hodong (adolescent)

A 39 episode of intrigue in politics and love. Ja Myung, who is branded the princess of destruction, escapes death with the help of her mother and grows up among the common folk. She and Prince Hodong who is the rival of her nation fall in love but fate has it that they cannot be together * they are rival for God sake* Ja Myung, who fight to save her nation and had misunderstanding about his feeling toward her, finally pierces her sword towards Hodong. I cry a river in the end seing both of them died together.

12. Kangchi, The Beginning (2013)

Lee Seung Ki as Choi Kang Chi
Jung Joon Won as Kang Chi (child)
Bae Suzy as Dam Yeo Wool
Jo Min Ah as Yeo Wool (child)
Choi Jin Hyuk as Gu Wol Ryung (Kang Chi’s father)
Yoon Se Ah as Ja Hong Myung / middle age Yoon Seo Hwa (Kang Chi’s mother)
Lee Yeon Hee as Yoon Seo Hwa

Another 24 episodes not so called tragic. But I do enjoyed watched every scene of Kang Chi’s parents * hoping that this drama is about them, but it is just a hope. Not happen in real though * Wol Ryung and Seo Hwa love story is tragic. They meant for each other but they came from a different world and that what make them separated. I cry hard for Wol Ryung, when he learned that the woman he love betrayed him. I cry for Seo Hwa when I finally realized that she did love him deep down inside her heart. When she died, I felt like aaahh… noo… don’t leave Wol Ryung… Both of you deserve live happily ever after.

14. The Devil (2007)

Joo Ji Hoon as Oh Seung Ha
Uhm Tae Woong as Kang Oh Soo
Shin Min Ah as Seo Hae In

I enjoyed watching 20 episodes full of shin Min Ah and all the mystical things involved. Touched by her love story with Seung Ha. Heartbroken by his death.

15. What happened in Bali (2004)

Ha Ji Won as Lee Soo-jung
Jo In Sung as Jung Jae-min
So Ji Sub as Kang In-wook
Park Ye Jin as Choi Young-joo

It is 20 episodes of drama. Very very tragic. And it was happened here, in Indonesia, in Bali to be precise * For your info, Indonesia is not Bali but bali is part of Indonesia * Why I so called very very tragic. Because the 3 leads are end up dead. Jae Min had a misunderstanding with Soo Jung, jealousy and hatred filled him that trigger him to killed Soo jung and In Wook together. When he heard Soo Jung last word, that she love him. I think he regret for what he did, so he decided to killed himself in the beach. So, this is the second time I watched So Ji Sub, end up dead.

16. 49 days (2011)

Lee Yo Won as Song Yi Kyung
Jo Min Ah as Yi Kyung (young)
Nam Gyu Ri as Shin Ji Hyun
Kim Yoo Bin as Ji Hyun (young)
Jo Hyun Jae as Han Kang
Bae Soo Bin as Kang Min Ho
Jung Il Woo as scheduler / Song Yi Soo
Seo Ji Hye as Shin In Jung

A 20 episodes of mixed feeling. There were funny, romantic, sad, happy, anger inside this drama. It was so sad to see Ji Hyun and scheduler leave out this world and people they love. It was so sad to see Yi kyung and Han Kang, stand up in front of their grave by the end of the drama. it will be a really nice ending if in later years, they’ll end up together.

Kim Hyun Joo as Kim Yun Hee / Lee Sun Woo
Kim Ji Ho as Kim Tae Hee
So Ji Sub as Park Chul Woong
Han Jae Suk as Jang Jae Hyuk

After 40 episode of his longing for the woman he love, he end up dead. can you at least be happy ending for once  * Well he did, in his other dramas. I just being overreacted *

18. Tree of Heaven (2006)

Lee Wan as Yoon-suh
Park Shin Hye as Hana
Asami Reina as Maya
Uchida Asahi as Fujiwara Ryu

This is a collaboration drama between Korea and Japan. A 10 episodes of tear jerkers if I may say. As I told you, I started following Park shin Hye since Stairway to heaven. Here, I think she is at her best of crying scene. Hana had fall in love with her step-brother (Yoon Suh). They fall for each other, but as a tragic drama not allowed to have happy ending, so did their fate. Yoon Suh dead in the end, but his death brings life to Hana.

19. A love to Kill (2005)

20. A Thousand days promises (2011)

Kim Rae Won as Park Ji Hyung
Soo Ae as Lee Seo Yeon
Lee Sang Woo as Jang Jae Min
Jung Yoo Mi as Noh Hyang Ki

How can I not feel sad with this 20 episodes of drama. When the story itself revolved around losing memory. How sad it will be, when we losing memory of someone we love.

Bi as Cha Sang-doo

25 Sports Theme Anime

I am anime lover. One of genre that catch my attention is sport theme anime. Why? because I could learn about the sport itself in a fun way. So, when I try to do the sport, I got pretty little idea how to play it or how the rule is. Although, some of them are just absolutely unbelievably hillarious and some of the others are kind of romantic.
