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 ^^

Epik High - Up

This is song that lately been playing over and over again in my smartphone. I really like this song! As usual the lyrics is so good. Good job Tablo-ssi!!! The melody is nice, the rap is nice, Park Boom's voice give somewhat rock feeling to this hip-hop track. Epik High fans from the past might have a long time to adjust with Epik High new style but according to me, I like them more when they made something that raise our spirit like this song. This is the video on their official channel on Youtube:


And this is from their performance on Inkigayo:


Gosh! Have I tell you that I really like this song? I ever rip this song from their MV. If you're interested, you can download it here.

One thing that I really like from this song is its lyrics that goes like this:

No pain, no gain. 
No rain, no rainbow.
No hurricane, tornado can ever stop me.

Those lyrics pump my spirit. You could find the full lyrics here.


So, what do you think about this song? Do you love it too?  

Indonesia Left a Good Impression on Alice Nine

I've been wanting to post this for so long. But due to my busy schedule, I couldn't post it right after JRock Evolution 2012 in Jakarta ended. I felt like I lost the right momentum to post this. But then I watched Alice Nine Channel on October 26th. Heard them talking about their impression of their recent live in Jakarta and Taipei made my mind, "I have to post this". I'm so glad that they seems like really treasure their overseas fans. First, I want to share some screen caps from UNiTE, MUCC and Alice Nine's personnel tweet about their feeling in regards to Jakarta live.


Before live, at the first day of Alice Nine arrival in Jakarta,
Hiroto-kun met some Alice Nine's fans in Mall Fx Senayan. This is his reaction

Impression from Yui-san, vocalist of UNiTE. He's quite cute nee

Miya-san (from MUCC)! I love you too! Please come again to Indonesia!

Jakarta live is so hot nee!!

There's a lot of male fans of Alice Nine in Indonesia.
Some of them had been in J-Rock band and quite handsome.
Moreover, they sat on VVIP places so it's not surprising that they left deep impression.
Do you know that there are several bands that love to cover Alice Nine's song in Indonesia?
Jelly Fish and Foru band. They both come to the concert!!

Hiroto was so energetic on stage. You know how excited he was in Jakarta live concert?
He's very excited to the point that he broke one bone in his ribs. Oh boy, be careful Pon! 



I'm waiting for Alice Nine one-man live concert in Indonesia!!

Thank you too, Nao-san! 


I only know a little bit of Japanese. But I'm quite sure that in this tweet Shou-kun
said that he want to  come again to Indonesia (am I right?)
Almost all translations credit are for @aliceinrainbows on twitter.

Alice Nine also tell their impression on Jakarta live in Alice Nine Channel 26 October. As I already said, I only know a little bit of Japanese language. But here are some things that I could make out from their conversation in that show:
1. Tora said that their live in Jakarta is amazing. But when he is in Fx Senayan (a mall really near to their hotel),
there are some people said that they want to take a picture with him. But in the end, those people ask him,
"from which band are you from?". Wkwkwkwk. But he said he feel free in Jakarta.

2. Nao and Saga said that Jakarta live is very hot and fans are really excited.

3. Nao said that when they were doing the check sound, fans were screaming. When Saga play his bass, fans
screamed Saga's name. Saga said, actually his bass technician was the first person that play his bass, to
check the sound. But fans are already screaming his name, thought that it was him. Fans also screamed Nao's
name when Nao check the sound of the drums.

4. Nao and Saga said that their fans were calling, "Alice Nine! Alice Nine! Alice Nine!" and it's made them happy.

In the Premium corner, Tora ask their male fans to come to their concert. Nao and Saga said that lately many
males come to their show. Saga said in Jakarta, many male fans came. The handsome one too.

By the way, the screen caps of Alice Nine Channel is credit to Azshannar. Let's wait until Jaeho_x3 finish her
translation of this show!!! I'm really glad that they had fun in Indonesia!

Adventure on October 28th, 2012 - Amsterdam

As I told you before in my last post, on October 28th I went to Amsterdam. I went to Schiphol Airport first to put my baggage then I proceed to Amsterdam Central Station. I went to Madame Tussaud Museum and had some fun in Amsterdam. My visit was too short, I didn't even get to Van Gogh Museum, Rembrandt Museum or experience Canal Cruise because I have to be in Schiphol Airport early. But It's alright. At least I got to visit Amsterdam. He he he. Some people suggest me to go to Red District. Hello? I thought I don't have to go there. Moreover, I had to leave Netherland in the afternoon and honestly, I ever passed the Dolly localization in Surabaya so I've already have a picture about what would I see on Red Districts. These are the pictures that I took in Amsterdam:

Amsterdam Central Station

Beautiful view


The main transportation in Amsterdam, Tram

I didn't manage to take canal cruise. Hikz

Me try to look cute in this Holland traditional costume
Anyway, I hope I could share knowledge that I got from the training to my colleagues. I feet blessed because I have the opportunity to go overseas and experience different culture. But this makes me questions my resolution to take Master degree overseas because I really can't stand the cold weather. Maybe I should go to University of California, instead to go to Monash University? I heard it's warm in California. What do you think? 

Adventure on October 27th, 2012 - Maastricht

Since my training was ended on October 26th, on October 27th I got opportunity to went to Maastricht and on the following day, I went to Amsterdam. My first plan was to go to Volendam and Amsterdam but since my friends here wanted to go Maastricht, I ended up went there instead. Moreover, I loved history. So it's a good experience for me since Maastricht is the oldest town in Netherland with lot of historical places. Do you know that it is the city where Europe Union born? This place is near the border of 3 countries, Netherland, Germany and Belgia. Here are some pictures that I takes in Maastricht:

Train station in Maastricht. Since it was so cold, I don't really take care about my appearance.
All I know was, if I cover all of my body until I looks like a ninja turtle, maybe I wouldn't feel so cold. He he

There's a second hand market on the street. This was the first time I really see clothes made from real animal.


Flower shop






I came to this museum











Place of European Union Treaty. If I'm not wrong




This church was build in 1300




Birds was scrambling for food


By the way, in Netherland, Walls ice cream is called Ola
It was a cold and tired day. I hate cold places. T^T. No matter how pretty other country is, I still prefer to live in Indonesia. He he he. What do you think? Maastricht is quite pretty, isn't it?
