Tour de Saga 2016

Tanggal 6 November 2016 rombongan PPI Kitakyushu mengadakan tour ke Saga untuk melihat Saga International Hot Air Balloon Festival yang diadakan tiap tahun di Prefektur Saga. Letak Saga agak jauh dari Kitakyushu, waktu tempuh menuju Saga dengan mobil pribadi via tol bisa 1.5-2 jam, sedangkan kalo naik JR bisa lebih lama. Ini juga kali pertama saya berkunjung ke Saga, selama 1,5 tahun tinggal di Kitakyushu. Sepintas, Saga terasa lebih asri dibanding Kitakyushu, karena masih banyak area persawahan di sepanjang perjalanan. Kalo di Indonesia, bedanya kayak Nganjuk dan Malang kali ya :p.

Asadora 朝ドラ

Hi, hisashiburi ne~~

Kali ini mau cerita sedikit tentang Asadora. Asadora 朝ドラ, kependekan dari 朝 (asa) : pagi dan  ドラマ (dorama) : drama, artinya drama yang ditampilkan pagi-pagi. Drama ini ditayangkan di NHK channel 6 hari dalam seminggu dan berdurasi 15 menit. Dalam setahun, ada 2 asadora yang ditayangkan. Jadi, 1 judul asadora tamat dalam 6 bulan. Nggak heran untuk 1 judul asadora bisa sampe 150-an episode.

Asadora yang lagi on-air adalah Toto Nee-chan. Asadora ini menceritakan tentang kehidupan Tetsuko sebagai anak pertama dari 3 bersaudara. Sebelum ayahnya meninggal, Tetsuko berjanji pada ayahnya untuk ‘menggantikan’ posisi ayahnya untuk melindungi ibu dan adik-adiknya. Nah, udah bisa ditebak kalau di tiap episodenya akan diceritakan tentang gimana perjuangan Tetsuko berusaha meringankan beban ibunya.

Spending Golden Week Holiday at Kawachi Fuji Koen

Golden-week holiday was coming! That was my first Golden-week holiday in Japan. Since in Indonesia there is no Golden-week holiday, I was curious how Japanese people spent their Golden-week. So I tried to search whether any events held near here or not (I lived in Kitakyushu FYI), and guess what there were a bunch of events in Golden-week, mostly in Fukuoka. While I browse on internet, I stopped my eyes on the pictures of white, pink and purple flowers fully covered the tunnel in Kitakyushu. It is Kawachi Fuji Koen. Since it is near from my dormitory, I decided to visit there.

Kawachi Fuji Koen (also known as Kawachi Wisteria Garden) is located in Yahata, Kitakyushu. The nearest station from Kawachi Fuji Koen is Yahata Station. From Orio Station, I took train on the JR Kagoshima Line to Yahata station. At Yahata station, you will find a number of bus stops on the left side as you exit the station building. It will be better if you arrived 20-30 minutes early and get on the line for the bus. You can either take free shuttle bus Ajisai no yu or Nishitetsu Bus #56. The capacity of free shuttle bus is about 25 seats—fewer than Nishitetsu bus—and there were many people in the line. Yeah, that was golden-week while all Japanese people were going out and enjoying holiday with family and friends. Not only Japanese, there were several tourists from Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnamese on the line. The maps below shows the route from Yahata Station to Kawachi Fuji Koen.

Maen Keyboard Online :D

Hai, haha. Kenapa hari gini kok tiba2 saya posting artikel ini?

Pertanyaan besar? Apakah saya sudah bisa maen piano? Jawabnnya : Belum :D.

Maka, disinilah saya akan belajar!

  1. Virtual Keyboard  Online
  2. Virtual Piano

Kata teman saya (yang lebih mahir) ada perbedaan besar antara piano dan keyboard.. kalo keyboard bisa memainkan banyak suara, misalnya: suara gitar, suara bass, suara seruling, dll. Kalo piano hanya bisa memainkan 1 jenis suara sajaaa.. :D. Mungkin ini bukan pengetahuan baru buat teman-teman, tapi menurut saya, ini adalah pengetahuan baru :D.

Hehe, jadi ingat Multimedia Project saya, bahasannya sama-sama tentang tutorial bermain piano dasar (tapi dalam bentuk VCD) untuk anak usia 3-6 tahun…ide ini muncul karena saya ingin jadi orang yang pertama nyobain main ternyata di kelompok saya ada mahir maen piano :D, hahaha. Jadilah dia saya suruh2 ngumpulin materi tutorial maen piano dasar :D.

Hingga saat ini progressnya masih berhenti pada tahap proposal :D, hehehe. Doain moga cepet selesai yaaaay!!

If No One Will Listen

Maybe no one told you there is strength in your tears
And so you fight to keep from pouring out
But what if you unlock the gate that keeps your secret soul
Do you think that there’s enough you might drown?
If no one will listen, if you decide to speak
If no one is left standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you for what you really are
I will be here still
No one can tell you where you alone must go
There’s no telling what you’ll find there
And God I know the fear that eats away at your bones
It’s screaming every step just stay here
If no one will listen, if you decide to speak
If no one is left standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you for what you really are
I will be here still
If you find your fists are raw and red from beating yourself down
If your legs have given out under the weight
If you find that you’ve been settling for a world of gray
So you wouldn’t have to face down your own hate
If no one will listen, if you decide to speak
If no one is left standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you for what you really are
I will be here still
If no one will listen, if you decide to speak
If no one is left standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you for what you really are
I will be here still, I will be here still

really like this song.. deeply touch my heart! Ms. Clarkson brought it very-very-very-well ;p..

Lirik Already Gone-nya Kelly Clarkson

Hmm, lagunya udah agak jadul memang.. tapi, aku baru tau *katro banged* 😉

so far, best song have never ever beaten up!! 😉 hohoho. Let’s  sing!!

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even with our fists held high
It never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die...

I didn't want us to burn out
I didn't come here to hurt you now I can't stop...

I want you to know
It doesn't matter where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you'll find another
That doesn't always make you wanna cry
It started with the perfect kiss then
We could feel the poison set in
"Perfect" couldn't keep this love alive
You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go

I want you to know
It doesn't matter where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

I'm already gone, already gone
You can't make it feel right
When you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone, already gone
There's no moving on
So I'm already gone

Ahhhh already gone, already gone, already gone
Ahhhh already gone, already gone, already gone 

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they're haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye...

I want you to know
It doesn't matter where we take this road
Someone's gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn't have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I'm already gone

I'm already gone, already gone
You can't make it feel right
When you know that it's wrong
I'm already gone, already gone
There's no moving on,
So I'm already gone
