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 ^^

Taeyang, Rise Live in Concert Jakarta, 14 February 2015.

So 5 months ago, I did the most random thing in my life so far. Out of the blue, I decided to join my friends to watch Taeyang concert in Indonesia. I still don't get how or why this was happened since at first only 2 of my friends want to watch it. Seriously, it's just 2 in the beginning but it ended up with 7 people went to watched this concert. ^0^. Ha ha ha. Not mentioning that several of them temporarily became "sasaengs" and went as far as following Taeyang from his arrival in Soekarno-Hatta airport. Maybe the story of how they succeed to made their car went beside Taeyang's car, even got Taeyang to open his window and smile at them, also made the other excited & look forward for the concert.

I actually just want to meet up with some friends after my class in EF which coincidentally near with Tennis Indoor Senayan, venue for Taeyang live in concert. I did wish to watch that concert though. I love Big Bang, even though I'm not very much a fan of Taeyang. My knowledge about his music is limited hence I only knew some of Taeyang songs from his 3 albums. But I always had this affection for him. Not only he's a good singer with beautiful voice but also he was Team A (now officially debut with name WINNER) mentor in WIN. That's why I have this strange affection towards his songs, Wedding Dress and Only Look at Me, since team A cover it for their first battle.

So my friends & I were almost late to enter the venue since we just decided to watch this concert in last minute. As soon as we sat in tribune left, the concert started. Taeyang looked handsome in his gold pants. When I saw that pants in photographs, I think it's too much but it turned out to be really pretty. The seats in VIP zone was not full, too bad it's half empty. Probably because the VIP price was so expensive (2,5 millions rupiah) while the view is not really good, it's actually quite far from stage. But other sections were fully occupied & it's not tampered Taeyang enthusiasm throughout the concert. Moreover, Indonesian VIPs are cheering him so loudly.

So far, I enjoy this concert more than I enjoyed Bigbang Alive Tour concert. The fans are enthusiast yet they scream at the right moment, not like when I attend Bigbang concert in 2012 that made my ear ringing. I can hear Taeyang's beautiful voice clearly & the encore was long I feel like I was the one who became tired, not Taeyang. Ha ha ha. He's stunning & really a great performer.

By the way, there's an accident at his concert in Malaysia where Taeyang pants accidentally torn. That's why I and my friends were joking that we came to see "Taeyang's ripped pants" in this concert. Anyway, it's not happened. Ha ha ha. His pants was secure & not torn in place that my friend want. But he stripped & showed his abs like usual (not like I care about that though. I love Taeyang for his voice. He he he). By the way, rather than fangirling at Taeyang, several of my friends choose to fangirling over Kwon Twins instead, made me laughing at their antics. LMAO. Here are several fancams taken by my friend:

Overall I enjoyed this concert, satisfied without regret. Thank you for my friends that out of the blue persuaded me to join their crazy antics & making this as my Valentine date. By the way, Taeyang is so sweet because he gave us free chocolate after the concert end as Valentine gift. I was touched. First, I wasn't spending Valentine Day alone & then there's this hot guy gave me Valentine gift. Lucky! Thank you Taeyang ^^, you are the 1st Concert that I watch this year.

Ant-Man (Review)

If there's something that I hate from superhero movies nowadays, it's their need to make everything go bigger. From bigger blast, bigger destruction, bigger action scenes. In short, there's this need for every superhero movies to make it looks like the earth is in peril & need to be saved. Well, Ant-Man movie is (thankfully) not like that.

This movie, at heart, is a movie about relationship of father & his daughter. Michael Douglas played Hank Pym, A former S.H.I.E.L.D agent and also a scientist who found a formula that allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength. He's the former Ant-Man that had used this formula frequently in the war as a S.H.I.E.L.D agent, but his relationship with his daughter, Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lily) is estranged due to the dead of his wife. On the other hand, there's this thief named Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) that desperate to find work to support his daughter & be a good dad. To make a long story short, Scott Lang become the successor of Hank Pym as Ant-Man.

What I love about this movie:
  1. It's different from other superheroes movies that I've watched
  2. The actors. Their actings are good. I love Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. I especially love Michael Peña as Luiz. He's so funny. Ha ha ha
  3. This movie is playful with lots of humor.
  4. It's touching to see father's love to his daughter in this movie. I always love movie about family's love.
What I don't like:
  1. The music & music score. It's so so & it's not give me memorable impression.
  2. As with almost all superhero movies that I've watch, I feel the villain in this movie lack in depth. 
From the eyes of many people, Ant-Man might be not your traditional superhero. His signature superpower is changing his size, and also ability to communicate with - wait for it - ant, which are not as flashy as Captain America, Thor or Iron Man. In this world where when you said superhero you imagine things like Superman (with his super-strength, super-speed, & vision powers), Ant-Man stands out because he doesn't have those things. But it doesn't mean that a movie about Ant-Man is not interesting. In my opinion, this comedic heist movie is funny, playful & enjoyable.

If you want a not-so-serious heist movie to make you laugh, touch your heart with warm family love & enjoy your day, I recommend you to watch it. But if you're the type that like to see car blows up, building wrecked, glassess shattered, & earth crumble, you might be a little bit dissapointed. Damage in this movie is relatively insignificant compared to the high stakes and city-shattering destruction that take place in most of other superheroes movie. But overall, I really like this movie I might watch it again.
