Journey Through River

What blocked this path is River! River! River!
A stretched-out River!
The fated River! River! River!
An ordeal River!




Yesterday, May 11th, 2013… I and my friend went to fX lifestyle X’nter…
We went there to have a breakfast and to see the JKT48 CD Single Album RIVER (Theater Version) sales opening day…

We arrived there around 09.30… went to find some food for breakfast…
We took a glimpse of the JKT48 There (where the sales was held)… there were already full of people… my friend took a photo from the lift…

WOI! It was still 09.30 and it’s already crowded! Seriously!

We ate breakfast (or I should say late breakfast) on Es Teler 77…
Around 11.50, after we finished breakfast, we went to queue line for buying that CD…

We though that the shop had already opened… but, it hadn’t been opened yet.
The official informed on the twitter time line that the sales would be opened at 11.00…
Seriously! It was almost 12.00 and it hadn’t been opened yet.

At the end they opened the shop around 12.20…
This is a photo that was taken by friend of mine… after we moved a bit from the long queue…

Full of people… crowded… hot…
I think I understand the true meaning of “RIVER”… the river of human that must be passed through…

We must place an order by filling the form for each person in the inner room…
Basically, the number of CD bought = the number of handshake event ticket got…

I picked Cindy Gulla and Nakagawa Haruka for the handshake event tickets…

Continuing walk for queue in the inner room after filling the form…
There were four sales counters… and each counter sit two JKT48 members and one staff…

The counter which I got was served by Ayana and Sonia (?)

During the transaction, I had a conversation with Ayana…


The translated conversation

Ayana: “Hello~!”

Me: “Hello~!”

–Ayana checked the form–

Ayana: “Onii-san… you like loli, don’t you?”

–I was shocked by unexpected question and frozen for a second–

Me: “I guess that’s not true…” I denied

Ayana: “Hee… but you do choose Cigull and Haruka”

–Pause a bit–

Ayana: “I wasn’t chosen… Onii-san, you’re meanie~!”

Me: “Next time, OK! I will buy one (the Ayana handshake ticket)”

Ayana: “Onii-san, you’re meanie~!”

Me: “Please, don’t be like that… Next time, OK…”

Ayana: “Onii-san, you’re meanie~!”

–after that, I got the CDs and left the counter–



She used expression something like this while saying “Onii-san, you’re meanie~!”… It’s sure very effective…

We finally finished buying CD, it was around 16.00… I could not believe that it took more than four hours… good thing that I brought the handheld console with me…
The condition when we arrived was as same as when we left… river of human…
Buying online is much more convenient…

Journey through river ended here…
After that we went to karaoke box because it was raining outside…



This is the photo of CDs and handshake tickets…

There was an improvement… the cover printing is better than earlier album printing…
But, I also got an apologize note that the track listing in the back cover is wrong…

Title: Tentang Harapan
By: NO NAME
Translated Lyric: myonlylovesakura + Aichiya Sanae

walau kurentangkan tangan
sekarang (sekarang) tak dapat kuraih
mimpi kita semuanya
masihlah (masihlah) nan jauh di sana

bintang yang bersinar di langit
bertahun-tahun cahaya jauhnya
menyinari langit gelap
dengan sinar terang

kata tentang harapan
akan kuungkap semua
seperti pembuat puisi yang penuh (yang penuh)
semangat (semangat)
jika engkau menangis,
teteskan air mata
ku takkan menghiburmu,
tetapi (tetapi) ku akan (ku akan)
bicara… fajar yang datang…

walau ku mencari cinta
tak dapat (tak dapat) langsung kutemukan
dorongan di dalam diri
inginkan (inginkan) cintai orang lain

di dunia yang sangat luas
dan dipandu oleh jiwa raga
kita dapat lihat satu
cahaya penolong

kata tentang harapan
akan kuungkap semua
seperti pelaut tua, yang tekun (yang tekun)
dan rajin (dan rajin)
jika misalnya engkau
terluka, tersakiti
ku takkan sembuhkanmu
tetapi (tetapi) ku akan (ku akan)
menunjuk… pagi yang cerah…

manusia miliki mimpi
dan mudah untuk menelantarkannya
tetapi mimpi ‘kan selalu
tunggu kita semua

kata tentang harapan
akan kuungkap semua
seperti pembuat puisi yang penuh (yang penuh)
semangat (semangat)
jika kau tak temukan
jawaban masalahmu
janganlah kau berhenti
dan terus (dan terus) berjalan (berjalan)

kata tentang harapan
akan kuungkap semua
ku ‘kan jadi kesatria yang kuat (yang kuat)
dan nanti (dan nanti)
ku akan… wujudkan mimpi…

Kereta Pelangi (Niji no Ressha Indonesian Lyric)

Niji no Ressha Indonesian lyric, with adjusted syllable for karaoke.

Lirik Indonesia untuk Niji no Ressha (Kereta Pelangi), disesuaikan dengan suku kata untuk karaoke.

Title: Kereta Pelangi
By: NO NAME
Translated by: myonlylovesakura

Di depan| stasiun| berhembus angin segar
Lewati| angkasa| dan iku|ti awan
Kupandang| jam tanganku,|waktu perlahan hilang
Kuhirup| udara dengan perlahan

Apakah ku tak boleh| mengikuti dirimu yang pergi?
Apakah| kau tinggalkan cinta?

Kereta pelangi t’lah| melintas seketika
Saat kita semua| menuju mimpi kita
Aku ingin lakukan perjalanan bersamamu
Buanglah| semua,| ikuti aku!

Jika ki|ta semua| hidup satu dunia
Itulah| fakta yang| tidak dapat berubah
Meraih| tujuan| sampai ke angkasa
Ternyata| bumi demikian luas

Apakah engkau mau| ‘tuk mengejar masa depan kita?
Ataukah| kau ingin berhenti?

Jangan terlambat naik| ke kereta pelangi
Tak perlu ketahui| tujuan selanjutnya
Perlahan kita akan mendapatkan sesuatu
Dan sua|tu hari| kita kembali

Kini,| engkau dapat mengejar kita semua
Dan jika berlari,| sesuatu dimulai
Dengan jembatan tujuh warna

Kereta pelangi t’lah| melintas seketika
Saat kita semua| menuju mimpi kita
Aku ingin lakukan perjalanan bersamamu
Buanglah| semua,| ikuti aku!

Touhou Puppet Play World Link R2 Test

Culture Japan Night – Jakarta 2012

Another late review of event…
This time I want to share my experience visiting Culture Japan Night…
Most of photos here were taken by Yoga, a friend of mine…

Culture Night Japan – Jakarta 2012 was held by Culture Japan President, Danny Choo…

This event originally was planned to be held at Mall Taman Anggrek…
But, under some circumstances, the placed was moved to Hotel Borobudur…
It was my luck… if it was held in Mall Taman Anggrek… probably I couldn’t attend Culture Japan Night…
Hotel Borobudur is near from my office… a few hundred meters distance…
So, I went there after work… still using my office uniform… xD




I arrived there approx 17.30… and the place was already filled with a lot of people…





One point that interested me…
This event is where the first official Moekana Tournament was held…

The best three got special prizes…
Mirai Music Album that hasn’t been release yet… Mirai T-shirt… and artwork+signature from Dr.Vee and Danny Choo…

And the tournament…





And the winners… along with Danny Choo, Dr. Vee, and the cosplayers…



Apart of the tournament, you could talk, or take photos with Danny, or make him sign any stuffs you brought…
I asked him if he would make a game or two based on Mirai-chan… and he answered that he will develop and make them surely…
And also I got my AKB0048 and ID card signed…

This picture is The Otaku Network leader (NeoHybridKai; left) and the photographer (Yoga; right) along with Danny Choo holding Wedang Jahe Kalengan “Dry Ginger”…

Some of The Otaku Network members…

The special guests…



And the following photos are the ota-stuffs that were brought by the attendants or already there placed by officials…
If I know this earlier, I would bring my Keine figure from my office…





























I guess that’s all…
and this final photo was taken by official…
