RL update(?)

is it necessary to write an update of my real life tho? I don't think so, honestly, but then again I feel like writing something here so maybe this post will do. it's totally not important, I know. XD

so. how many of you out there know about me being on my already fifth year on college? late, I know. but I'm just soooo lazy to start working on my thesis. T^T I got the data on my hands already, but still.... urgh, so lazy. someone please make me do my thesis... I just happen to lost all of my motivations to graduate and it's suck. I need to graduate in August, I don't know what I need to do to my self, to make it all right.
been months already, me doing nothing progressive but reading fanfictions day and night with the occasional cooking in between, and checking on my character in this certain otome games.

speaking of which, anyone here playing Samurai Love Ballad: Party? I'm currently playing Kojuro's route. maybe by the end of the week it will be finished. Kojuro's my second route, I took Kenshin first and it was hitomebore. XD but to be honest, Kojuro's more of my type than Kenshin and now I'm kinda confused because it'll get very messy and bloody expensive to have 2 husbando! DX to think that I've drained my pearl stock for the last battle event because of a very fatal move and currently depressly trying to refill the pearls without draining my bank account I'm a very poor student, don't have enough money to spend for my idols, let alone this game.

tomorrow will be a certain character's birthday, Saizo, and my friend, who told me about the game in the first place, is one of Saizo's waifu (they're a lot, really). she wanted to make Saizo's favourite food, dango, and we made plans to try it together earlier this week but she fell ill. so I asked my junior, who's quite close to me and my friend to help me make the dango.
honestly I wasn't really sure with the ingredients I bought for the dango, hell I don't even know where to find the right ingredients for it here so I could only trust my gut.

seemed like my gut was wrong.

the dango was epic failure. they didn't even stay on shape! most of the dango balls were not evenly cooked and they were too damn sweet!
for once, at last, I declare my self an idiot in pastries making and swear I won't even try to make any, even after I manage to get the dango right. yes, I'm still going to try for the dango. for the sake of my sick friend. T^T9

Complete Collection of Johnnys Countdown from 2003-2004

I never knew yinyuetai is such a paradise. FINALLY I can have all these precious records I've beeng searching for years.


well, mostly are not HD and have Chinese sub, which kind of disturbing what do you expect?
but still, it felt sooo good to have them all. I actually would love to upload the rare ones but I'm not sure about any disclaimer or copyright issues cz I have zero knowledge in Chinese and honestly a lil bit worried. if anyone can convince me that it's ok to re-upload and anyone else need me to upload, maybe I will.

I CONFESS!

I don't understand what has gotten into me. why just now, when the group is on hiatus that I'm so into KAT-TUN????
Before recently I've never really following the group. maybe occasionally, since this group is the closest one to NEWS and they often had work with each other. but it was maybe around a year ago when I got hold of some of the main songs in their singles, mostly the ones I've watched before on old Shokura episodes.
I've been trying to find those songs's PV but sadly didn't work well enough, just found the most recent ones: Unlock and Tragedy. THEN, I join a community here (been around a month, perhaps) and finally found the PVs I've been dying to see.

Why just now tho? I could've tried to find the community much more earlier than I did, but I didn't.

And lately I've been reading too many Akame fics that they become one of my most favourite OTP, and most of the fics I've been reading was so great and very well-written that I couldn't stop until the last chapter (the longest one was chap 40, with average word-count each chap was 5k-7k, 長くない?). those fics affected me too much that all I saw when I watched the old PVs were only Akame and their interactions with each other, and I squealed too much. ><

I thought I have enough with NEWS and HSJ at the same time. turn out, I got myself into another fandom. T-T

Tegoshi Yuya's 29th birthday + [DL] Anata

HAPPY BIRTHDAY YUUYA-SAAAAN!!!!!!!!!
this guy deserve to have a birthday post on this journal, because you see, he's basically the one who lured me here.
the one who brought me into a shining, dazzling, full of glitter world of Johnnys.

I cannot thank you enough for bringing me here, for your neverending smile, for your lovely voice,
and for simply being there.


cr: darumador
and yes, you've changed. the you who used to be passive, became the sun when your group was in darkness.
you're shining so brightly that sometimes it's too much and I couldn't help but wonder that maybe, behind all those laughters, there are countless of scar inside.

but remember what Ootani Nobuhiko-san said?

this part.

I personally think that you're so strong to still be able to show your bright smile even after the things happened.
but you know what?
It's alright to cry at times. you're a human being after all, so it's ok to cry.

don't hold everything on your own. you have friends to keep you on your feet,
and I believe the other members also want you to rely on them not only for buying you food, obviously.

eventhough I know and perfectly understand why you do that.
probably because we're the same, B-type and the child of November(?). /heh


and to celebrate the day, I present my subbed version of Tegoshi's solo PV, Anata
(click the picture below for the link)


a heart-breaking love song. which I believe wasn't really made for a mere lover.

it's a song dedicated for your father, isn't it Tegoshi-san? :")

I understood immediately tho. the lyrics, it's obviously made for him.

the thing is, I almost wrote a letter for you, the moment when my father's gone.
because we had almost the same circumstances:
that both of us couldn't be with them when they drew their last breath;
that both of us couldn't really cry on the funeral; and many others.
I wonder why we have lots of similarities and at the same time, are completely different.

nevertheless, thank you, because that way, I feel that I'm not all alone.
moreover, this song was somehow a reliever for me so.... yeah.

thank you.

again.

and happy birthday. <3

Recent Fave Album Review

this post might be too influnced by this review over here, but I'll put my personal review anyway.


I've been listening to this album for almost a week, non-stop, literally.

Fantôme. The Phantom.

the last time I listened to Hikki-san's album was Heart Station and it was released in 2008. I enjoyed listening to the album until around 4-5 years ago, right before I found the bigger fandom to flail for. This one, Fantôme, is her comeback album, after she released 2 singles, which also included in the album, earlier this year. It counted as a comeback after she stated that she doubt if she would still be able to produce music since her mother's shocking death.

There.

The thing that attracted me more. And perhaps why she named it Fantôme. This album was made after her grief which portrayed literally in the lyrics of the songs. I didn't have any idea tho when I downloaded the whole album. I didn't know that I would be addicted to it; clearly feel the sadness, as I also just lost my father.

I haven't told you anything yet"

夏はやっぱり海

a very late post to make but hey it's still summer right?!
I don't have much to write coz it's mostly just photos I'd call it pictures dump of our 2 days vacation last month.

I need to appreciate my nephew's effort in learning photography in such early age. well, not really. he's just 5 and practically carried my camera everywhere just to mess with everyone. -_-

[nephews snaps]

(got a selfie here)






it'll be a vehicle convention. my nephew's just so in love with different kinds of vehicle, just like his father.







mostly blur but I'm just appreciating his effort in taking these photos. and although I don't really get why he needed to snap a trashbin and piles of rocks. 'twas better to take pictures of cows and goats behind the house I suppose.












[海だ!]

ain't he adorable~?









[snorkling~]


























I couldn't think about other poses, so.... -_-




the beach's actually less than 50m long and was very crowded when we got there, considering that the beach was just got opened for public around a couple of years and it was right on national holiday week, also discount for the snorkling service. damn the price was so cheap! 45k rupiah per person! and the view was also breathtaking enough to be compared with Bali's beaches. too bad I didn't go up the cliff and take other photos.
