Part 1: She Knows He Knows

He touched her finger that was still pointed at his chest, "Still manage to scare the day out of me, I see." She smiled. Too sweetly. "Are you trying to get us killed? Not a good day to die, you say?".

Somebody should publish this kind of booklet long before I even got enrolled in University of Indonesia. Duh! 1. If there's eventually a traffic light for passerby, please DO pay attention. It's not there for decoration purpose (only).

Dream High

Once upon a time, in one particular high school, lived one particular girl student. Let's call her Suzy. Not only that she got the looks, she also had the wealth and singing talent and lots of antis. All things other girls could only imagine.

Story From Far Java

On my last visit to Jogja (seriously this city has something captivating), I happened to visit Kraton Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat and Kraton Surakarta in one-day-trip to Solo.

Letting Go

The big question of letting go bugged my mind around these last couple of months. Some things.. are they worth to keep, or should I let them go. Think I'm pretty good of letting things go, but when inputs and comments started to coming in, I'd have to reconsider my decision.

Lost in snowy days

I'm writing this while listening to Rehab - Sittin in A Bar



Juat listen, kinda brought back my mood to write. Hehehe.

Anyway, Happy Christmas everybody, so great having another Christmas in the middle of people you love. As for me, I visited the old time uncle families and amazed at how fast the children grow. Dude, it's just been a year since I met them. Geez.

This past week made me realize something (unimportant) which is.. Vino Bastian itu maen di banyaaak pelem and in each movies he acted better as a macho cool guy instead of this flamboyant man. Adore this hunk, but I guess world is not fair indeed since his voice is so pitchy high nanny-sound-alike. Hahahahaha.

And then, now I'm a bit obsessed with the couple Luna Maya and Ariel - Peterpan. So cute, ini adalah hasil tiap hari nonton acara Dahsyat di RCTI kayanya, selera tontonan gue jadi kaya selera ibu-ibu. Huhuhuhuhu. Tapi seriously, they are cute eventhough the boy is shorter than the girl =P

In a more serious news, I visited Bandung a couple of days ago and I'm in love with the city, yeah well after spending 3 days in a row there, no wonder. A lot more trees give shocking impact, fresher air and not to mention the rainy season, made my night wandering shivered in a thick coat. Not long after I reached Jakarta again, mein gott, udaranya kering. Keriiiing, walopun banyak angin bertiup tapi kering abis. Abis-abisan. Jadi pengen beli rumah di Bandung.Eric Shinwa

Hm, apalagi? The recent movie I watch is like... none. I tried to avoid my laptop during my annual leave, cause somehow that thing reminds me of my clients. Aaargh. Hush hush.

That's it, quick recap from indigowine. See you all folks in the same channel and IP address. Ta-ta.

ps: Nama lengkapnya Ariel Peter Pan tu opo toh??

Eric ShinwaWhy the heck did I stay up this late? Hayah, the only sole reason is because I'm obsessed with this guy, a personnel of Shinwa named Eric. First time I noticed the very existence of this guy was after watching XMAN. He is adorable, his smile, his dorky jokes, and his elegant aura. Not to mention his shy nature. So kawaii.

Eric is also known, aside as a member of Shinwa's band, but also as an actor and starred in a lot of commercials. His poetic figure brought him a lot of fortune, I think. Currently, he serves his time in military duty, hopefully he came back alive. Geez.Eric Shinwa

Anywaay, browsing til this late of hour, I stumbled upon a cute website containing everything about Eric Shinwa. His commercial clips, his video shoots, his video clip, and even his movies. One of them is Banjun Drama called Sweet Room. The cool thing is he played with Chae Rim, an actress once mentioned in this blog for her role in Dal Ja's Spring. What a great coincidence!

Chae Rim itu emang selalu cocok dengan daun-daun muda dan brondong-brondong segar. Huhuhuhuhu. First Lee Min Ki and then Eric. Gila, lucky bastard!

Banjun drama itself has a cute meaning, it's like Sketsa show in Indonesia where stars acted in a minidrama with funny and witty scenario. Love it. Not only Eric starred in those dramas, but others like Rain, Se7en, etc are also has their own episodes. Coolness!

Moon Child

Okay, so I watched this last night because I thought hell why not? This is Hyde and Gackt movie after all, and since there's so many things I read refer to this movie, it's gotta be an interesting watch session.

It turned out to be exactly as I previously thought. An interesting watch. I like how the scenes were taken, even though the special effect is not as good as these days, but I enjoy it nonetheless. Please be warned that this post contains heavy spoiler.

Moon Child is about a vampire named Kei (played by Hyde - L'arc en Ciel) who travel across time (not in Hiro Nakamura's way) and meet a young boy named Sho. Later this young boy grows up and become mafia-look-alike (played by Gackt) and they become close friends. Vampire Kei ended up being in friendship circle between five people, four guys and one girl. Since their friendship is surrounded among mafia world, then there's no surprise when one by one those five people eventually died.

I almost expected this is a kind one movie started with Kei and ended with (also) Kei. But well, I was wrong. That's why I like it actually, hehehe, I adored those movies which are not predictable.

Anyway, I prefer Gackt's acting much more than Hyde's. Even if Hyde's easier in the eye. I love how Gackt resembles a troubled young man (later on, a troubled man adult) with his mascara, his make up, and his style (a bit girlish I think). And I love the feeling that all the faces playing in Moon Child is familiar to me.

So that is why I paid attention to the credit title. Holy cow, there's Wang Lee Hom and Kanata Hongo. Kyaaaaaa...! No wonder they looked so damn familiar. I knew them!
Hehehehehehe. Kanata Hongo was still a very very young kid, how old was he? Five? Six? And now he's playing Hinokio - Inter Galactic Love, Nana 2, Tennis no Oujisama, and became the model for Yui's video clip - Tomorrow Way. Sigh. Time flies.

Ah, I love the ending. Okay, I need to state that I love the entire movie which is not predictable AND got a nice ending scene. Usually those with lame ending scenes will be easily forgotten, zap, just like that. Say, Twilight? =P I can't even remember Twilight's ending scene now, omigod.

Moon Child's ending is taken at a beach, at sunrise, where vampires mostly fast asleep by then. But these two characters (Hyde and Gackt, who else?) decided to watch the sunrise instead. So, right before the sun came up, Hyde gave Gackt a picture of five of them (past life reference).

Then the camera spots the sun high above the head.

Then the picture.

Then the picture with red nuance. I mean, you get the whole idea that the vampire has been burned by the light. Beautiful. Brilliant. Sad.

Then the camera spot the car (did I mention they sit in a car? A roofless one). But of course, the car is empty.

And then I was like, "Aaaaw"-ing myself. Crazily fond of that scene. Blimey!

We watched the setting sun
A perfect orange glow
Both about to cry
For our final farewell

Twilight the movie

First thing I noticed is (obviously) the absolutely ridiculous amount of make up that the Cullen family wears. What happen with all special effect team that supposedly getting better along these years? Even I could point out blank that Edward Cullen is wearing too much white powder he almost looks like a transvestite. Geez. It really turned off the mood so I made up my mind to comment out as much as I can during the whole movie.

Jasper Cullen actually looked like Justin Timberlake (the hair!) with Charlie Chaplin character (except when they're playing baseball, he looked cool in that cap) with his being silent and stiff. Yes I know Jasper is supposedly become this empathy strong character but I don't get that in the movie. It doesn't even being explained, so newbie could only assume this Jasper guy is just another weird vampire.

Neeways, the utmost mockery scene was when, out of nowhere, Bella suddenly felt in love with Edward the vampire. Uh, hello, their interaction is basically seeing the onion through microscope together, avoiding each other during class, and yeah that grand rescue of Bella. That's it and suddenly Bella said, "I don't care, it doesn't matter (if you're a vampire)".

I strongly believe most of the audience last night has read the book first, because their reaction was simply based on the Edward cuteness and Edward coolness. Edward this and Edward that. Yes, sometimes he is easy in the eye, but that's only when he doesn't wear that much make up. It's not a great movie whatsoever, it's just a plain based-on-the-book movie, no surprise there and yes for you who even haven't read the book, DO NOT watch this in the movie theatre. It's boring, just a chick flick drama. This one is nothing more than a refuge for those girls who are in love with Edward character. Period.

Oh yes, the enemy looked so much cooler than Edward Cullen himself, hehehe, the name is James.. Cute, I love the pairing between Bella and James..
