That's what I am! (^∇^)

It's been raining for an hour now and I'm listening to KAT-TUN's newest album, Break The Records. It feels good, the sound of rain combined with Jin's sugoi voice! (I purposely ignore the other 5 members! *lol*)

Before 2009, I always karaoke in the regular places (NAV, Happy Puppy, even Inul Vizta :P) with non J-music-aficionado friends. Of course, I mostly sang English songs, coz those places don't have J-songs! (And I wasn't really exposed to Jpop much before)

So after the discovery of Doremido with [livejournal.com profile] caramichi last Dec 2008, I have since become a regular there that the staff knows me by name! xD Since March, [livejournal.com profile] nefretiriii and I had done it every so often (like twice a month). Until now, we haven't found a better place than Doremido, although they're missing J-songs from mid 2006 - mid 2008.

Last weekend, [livejournal.com profile] utaoutao was in town, so of course we had to have カラオケ night! Too bad the dinner at Manpuku wasn't as good as my first two visits. A friend of mine later did tell me that Manpuku could be a hit or a miss. Oh well. Better luck next time.

A memento from our Japanese night!

It's April Fool's day! ^ω^
March went by too fast, I almost didn't notice xD

My computer came back home last Saturday night after being repaired by my cousin (ありがとうございました m(._.)m). I spent the weekend night reinstalling all program files from scratch (because XP was reinstalled, so basically the C drive only had Windows XP SP 2 and Kaspersky... and nothing else -_-) until morning came. Chatted with a few friends while doing so. Reached 60% done when I went to sleep at 9a (on Sunday). Continued the reinstallations upon waking up. And when the weekend was over, I felt good because the whole process could reach 70% done in only one day ^^

By the way, this might sound unnecessary, but I'm tracking my sleep at Yawnlog since March 1st! xD My sleep cycle is totally messed up... as always! *lol*

I've been catching up with manga scanlations download after almost 1.5 years not doing so :P Countless manga to download! *_* I'm now dying to know the ending to Penguin Revolution. 1 more volume to go, please scanlate it asap *begs*

Last Monday I and [livejournal.com profile] caramichi had lunch at Pizza Marzano and computer session with tea at Starbucks, City Lofts. We picked that place because of the free wifi (well, obviously :P). It was our last hangout session before she moved to Singapore for college next week. がんばってね!

Tonight [info]nefretiriii and I are gonna have ramen dinner at Sing Sing Ramen, followed by karaoke session at Doremido ☆(^○^)☆
Can't waaiiiiitttt!

Time flies too fast! It's already past the third week of March O_O

21 March: Happy 3rd Birthday, Twitter!
22 March: Happy 3rd Anniversary, KAT-TUN! (therefore, a Jin avatar! xD)


Before [livejournal.com profile] caramichi moved to Singapore for college, we wanted to enjoy ourselves with everything Japanese. Hence we had all you can eat lunch at Poke Sushi and 3-hour karaoke at Doremido.  In truth, we both were still recovering from the flu virus, so it was a pretty funny sight in which my brother laughed at: we both sang with coarse voice & blocked nose due to sinusitis, sneezed and coughed every once in a while, and flipped through the songbook in an attempt to read the dreadful kanji o_O All at the same time, just like twins! *lol*

I'm still craving for more karaoke, so I'm gonna drag another friend to Doremido next week or so ^^ And of course I will try the karaoke place [livejournal.com profile] hemisofia went to last weekend when I go to Singapore next month or so.


I really love the all you can eat lunch at Samudra Shark's Fin, Mulia Hotel. For less than Rp. 70,000++, we can have so many selections of yummy appetizer, soup, dim sum, main course, dessert, drink..... and of course, as many crabs as I can take xD The deep fried crab with salt & pepper, the steamed garoupa fish, and the asparagus tofu with crab roe soup are to die for! :9 My mom, her 3 guests, and I just had a lunch feast last Friday. They didn't even charge us for the leftovers (and yet so many of them, coz we ordered too much :P).

Apparently not enough crabs, the next day my friends and I had seafood dinner at Pondok Latansa, Kelapa Gading. Cheap seafood, yummy taste, couldn't ask for more! As we are crab lovers, the seven of us ordered 4 portions of large crabs :9 I 'm really crab-fully satisfied this week! xD After the seafood feast, I tried the green tea shot at Cafe du Chocolat. Love it lots!


Computer got virus attack last Sunday early morning! >_<
In truth, it was my fault. I wanted to search for mIRC keygen & I deliberately disabled Kaspersky when I downloaded the keygen. Turned out, it was a trojan and it's already too late when I activated Kaspersky in an attempt to clean it. The virus already spreaded and even disabled my Kaspersky & some other apps. I tried to restart, but it wouldn't enter Windows, wouldn't enter safe mode, and kept on restarting itself. Frantically, I called my good friend in the US. He told me I got boot sector virus! Eeeep >_<
I sent it to my cousin (who works in IT) that afternoon. I don't understand hardwares, so it's better if I don't try to fix it myself for it might get worse.

*sigh* 2 computer mishaps in less than 2 months! @_@ I just hope my cousin can save it without reinstalling XP *prays hard* I don't want to go through the pain of reinstalling all program files & restoring all the settings & data one by one all over again! A week of doing so had only taken me to 70% done. Before I could continue, I already had to have it fixed yet again.


"There are those relationships that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous..."
~ Carrie Bradshaw (from Sex and the City)
