Music

I love many kinds of music and had went through various change in musical preference. From indie to mainstream. From classical music to jazz. Music is very important for me.

Books

A little bit different from other girls, rather than spend my money to buy clothes, shoes, or cosmetics, I usually choose to buy books instead.

Pharmacy

Pharmacists are healthcare professionals who practice in pharmacy, the field of health sciences focusing on safe and effective medication use. For me the science of pharmacy is fascinating and interesting.

Movie

I'm a movie enthusiast. Particularly for Fantasy, Adventure, Animation and Science-Fiction Movie. It's a nice way to escape the reality for a while.

Anime and Manga

I love to read manga and watch anime ^^

Insomnia

Rasanya sudah lama sekali hari-hari itu berlalu
Hari dimana tiba-tiba kuterbangun tengah malam
Terbangun meskipun tak ada angin tak ada hujan tak ada petir menggelegar
Merasakan hasrat yang mendesak untuk segera menguraikan benang kusut pikiran
Keran emosiku yang sudah bertahun-tahun tersumbat tiba-tiba bocor
Membanjiri saraf dan otot, menggerakkan tangan melukis huruf, membentuk tulisan

Bukan agar ada yang memperhatikan
Bukan pula untuk menjadi catatan, rekam peristiwa dalam hidupku yang biasa-biasa saja
Akupun tak mengharapkan ada yang mengerti, apalagi simpati
Semuanya hanya untuk mendamaikan neurotransmiter-neurotransmiter dalam kepalaku

Malam ini GABA setengah mati berjuang melawan Norephinefrin. Dibumbui Serotonin yang tiba-tiba agak superior. Ah. Semakin ingin aku menjelaskan, semakin ngawur kata yang tertuang. Semakin panjang, mengaburkan apa yang ingin kusampaikan. 

Dan akhirnya aku hanya sanggup kehilangan kata
Belum sempat ku mengungkap makna
Dia menguap entah kemana
Tulisan ini mati muda

Plastic Tree

Plastic Tree is one of my favorite Japanese band that have been existed for a really long time, since 1993. Wait, what?? You never heard anything about them?? Well, you could say that they're among many underrated band from Japan. Although renowned as Japan's The Cure, their music seemed to change and evolve with every album. It depends on your musical taste, but in my opinion their music is worth to listen.

Plastic Tree in Neo Genesis Magazine
This band consist of 4 talented musicians: 
  1. Ryutarou Arimura (Vocalist)
  2. Akira Nakayama (Guitarist)
  3. Tadashi Hasegawa (Bassist, leader)
  4. Kenken Sato (Drummer)
Kenken Sato is the newest drummer of Plastic Tree. They have changed drummer 4 times.

What capture me for the first time is Ryutarou Arimura's vocal. I don't know how to explain this, but he has a unique voice and unique style in singing. He's also the one who write most of Plastic Tree's lyrics. His lyrics is deep and have melancholic feeling to it.  That's why I love to hear their songs when I feel sad. 

His unique way of singing makes him one of my favorite Japanese Band vocalist. Not to mention that he's so handsome >////<. 

I love Akira-san guitar playing. He composed most of Plastic Tree's songs. Aside in Plastic Tree, he also guitarist of  Coaltar of the Deeper.

Plastic Tree leader. Somehow, he always associated with rain or storm or any kind of bad weather. ^ *. Is he some kind of raining man? 

Just like Ryutarou-san, Kenken is also a model. He's the youngest in Plastic Tree

Since they've been around for almost 20 years, they have so many good songs!! Here are some of my favorites!!

  • Fukurou
This song tell a story about someone that couldn't forget his/her previous lover despite now he/she is with someone else. The lyrics is beautiful

  • Spica
One of the most romantic songs from Plastic Tree.
  • Sanatorium
Hear this song makes me weep
  • Kuchuu Buranko
One of their most beautiful song
  • Alone Again, Wonderful World
Perfect song for broken heart people
  • Harusaki Sentimental
This is the perfect song to describe my believe in thing called love. The lyrics is so beautiful
  • Ghost
Perfect for head banging
  • Melt
As the title said, this song can make you melt
  • Rusty
One of their earliest songs
  • Fujunbutsu
Again. I could link this song to my personal experience. That's why this song is special for me
  • Utsusemi



This beautiful song about love that faded away could makes me cry


I really hope they'll get wider attention. It's too bad if good music is not heard by many people. ^-*

11 Things That You Should Know About Me

  • I was born as the 1st angel in my family, right after the sunrise. I have a talkative but tough mother, a kind father and 3 mischievous but really sweet siblings. Family is the most important thing in my life. I really thanks God for blessing me such an awesome family ^-*.
  • As a third Aquarius Decans, I love any kind of art. Music, dance, drama, painting, literature, etc. I love to play guitar, joined a theater club in senior high school, enjoy dancing, drawing and love to read books. I collect many books and comics.
  • I'm an unromantic person. I don't believe in love at the first sight and hate the phrase "happily ever after" in fairy tale. Maybe that's why I prefer to read shounen manga than shoujo manga because most of them too romantic and too good to be true.
  • Love to think positive and very tolerant to other people. If there's a person that I hate, you can be sure that this person is a very bad person. One of my friend ever said that one of my virtue is that I always see the beautiful side of everyone. It's a little bit embarrassing to say these kind of things myself XD
  • In the past, I'm afraid to speak in front of many people. Because my mind is faster than my mouth, every time I try to explain something to my friends they don't seem to understand. But with courage and practice, you could say that I never experience any problems in public speaking anymore since i was in university.
  • Love stars. They're my consolation. I love to looking at starry night when I'm sad. Maybe that's why when I was still in elementary school, my dream was to become an astronaut and work for NASA XD (laugh)
  • Every time I saw someone got hurt, it hurt me too. I cry after punch a delinquent when I'm in elementary school because I hate to hurt someone. I cry after cut a rabbit to take its blood for laboratory experiment. I feel pain when I see wounds of earthquake victims. That's why I oppose the idea of being a doctor and be a pharmacist instead.
  • I'm an independent person and don't like to be restrain. I don't care what people say or think about me, what matter the most is my opinion about myself and what I honestly want to do in my life.
  • I have ideas, beliefs and mannerisms that can seem to others as eccentric, bizarre and very unconventional. Even my taste of fashion is different from most people. Well, I'm an aquarius, you can't blame me for being a unique person ^o^.
  • I think I'm a perfectionist to some degree. I hate when people late or when my internet is slow (laugh). I take pride in all of my works and my ideal type of man is someone who enjoy and take pride in his works.
  • I enjoy everything I do in my life. I enjoy company of my friends and enjoy being alone too.
