In the Honor of the Snatcher

"I see you took an immediate liking to him."

"To whom?"

"To him. The guy you came accross at the exhibition last month."

"What makes you say that?"

"How many times have you opened his page since your encounter that day?"

"I open his page every once in a while."

"That didn't answer my question. And by once in a while, you mean once every two or three days, so it makes you have opened his page like.. 10 to 15 times already."

She laughed. A faint blush was slowly become visible on her cheeks. I couldn't help but smirk.

Chasing Yoko Shimomura: Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World Tour

Something spectacular happened last week in the honor of celebrating Kingdom Hearts series' 15th anniversary!

Pada Minggu 7 Mei 2017 lalu, saya dan sepupu saya bareng-bareng nonton Kingdom Hearts Orchestra World Tour di Singapura. Konser tersebut adalah konser official musik-musiknya Kingdom Hearts (dan world tour concert perdananya juga!). I never thought I would go to Singapore again this quick for another concert, considering the fact that I barely went to Singapore for Distant Worlds concert last December (click here to read the story). But there I was in the concert hall, completely enjoying the moment, nggak nyesel sama sekali telah merelakan segenap uang tabungan dan meninggalkan skripsi sejenak demi..

KETEMU YOKO SHIMOMURA!

An Afternoon Well Spent

Hola!

I never thought that I would publish another post so quick, considering my last post went online just less than a week ago, but here I am; sitting comfortably in front of my laptop (while listening to The Last Shadow Puppet and eating tons of snacks), ready to share whatever pieces of my life I reckon are worth-reading materials.

As seniors who are about to graduate (hopefully) soon, it is mandatory for my friends and I to present the Last Performance. The name says it all; it's an event where we put on various performances on stage dedicated as our last contribution for people on campus. It is also recognized as the last opportunity to show your true color slash go crazy (meaning: giving your best shot to come up with the most stupid, effective way of ruining your image you've exerted yourself to build in the last four years, like by doing some weird dancing or acting ridiculously).

Our Last Performance was successfully held last Wednesday, earning rounds of applause, squeal, and laugh. After practicing and preparing everything for weeks, I was nearly moved to tears at the end of the three hours performance. I felt so happy, relieved, and proud receiving positive feedbacks and knowing that people love the show!

Your Recommended Dose of Slice of Life

Although it's hard not to be stressed out from writing undergrad thesis, I still manage to distract myself by doing stress relieving activities. You name it; from going to the cinema and attending gigs to taking part in the Last Performance (by the way, it was a huge success, feeling so proud!). Watching movies and reading mangas are also on the list. So in this post, I would like to talk about these one film and manga that gave me a quite lasting, deep impression.

Your Carnation

Usai kereta pergi
dan kapal terbang tinggi

Rahasia meluap
tanpa sempat terungkap

Rasa menguap
tanpa sempat terucap

Menyungkum tanah
Terhalang janji
