WARNING:THIS IS AN EXTREMELY LONG POST
READ AT YOUR OWN RISK
( a veeerrryyyy long post under the cut, you"ve been warnedCollapse )
I left Okinawa for Tokyo at around 11am. Had I not re-checked my flight schedule the day before, I would have missed my flight because I thought my flight was at 1pm lol! Naha Airport is really nice but unfortunately I took Peach so I had to fly from LCC terminal. Not really liking that terminal though XD
It took 2 hours 50 minutes to reach Tokyo. Okinawa was soo hot that as soon as I reached Tokyo, the weather felt so warm XD My plane landed at Narita, which is not my favorite airport since it's quite far from Narita to reach downtown Tokyo. It took more than 1 hour to reach Tokyo and as soon as I reached Asakusa, I rushed to my hostel because I needed to be in Odaiba around 5 to meet Jean and Rin. I reached Odaiba much later than 5 OTL So glad to finally meet Jean again and meet a new friend, Rin-chan. She's from Thailand but she's studying in Japan. Her English is so perfect ^^
It's really been a while since I updated my blog lol! I've been missing the muse to blog actually that I haven't blogged anything about AMAZING WORLD and ATSUSHI's IT'S SHOW TIME despite the fact I had a really amazing time in both concerts. I'm not sure if I can blog about AW since it's already been months (and the DVD is already out anyway), but I'll try to blog about ATSUSHI's IT'S SHOW TIME later, but for the time being, let me start with SPEEDSTER first *hides*
I really have to thank GENE for making me go to places I have never been before. I have always wanted to go to Okinawa and knowing that GENE would hold their concert there I tried my luck to ballot for Okinawa shows. Okinawa was supposed to be their final show, that's why I balloted for it, because final show is normally more special. But unfortunately it wasn't lol! oh well, it's alright. I'm already more than happy to be able to go to Okinawa.
Okinawa is such a nice place, but the weather was very unpredictable. One second it was very hot and the next thing we knew it poured so hard, like reaallly hard! Jean and I had to go home while bearing the cold from being soaked from head to toe because of the rain lmao! It was such a memorable night XDDD
Okay, now let's talk about GENE and SPEEDSTER ^^
( click me for spoilers and screaming and moaning and etc etc etcCollapse )
Next post will be about Tokyo trip where all the amazingness of HIGH & LOW THE BASE, HIGH & LOW THE MOVIE and IZAKAYA EXILE happened <333
I'm tired of crying and my eyes are still so swollen. This news came to a shock for me though I somehow saw that coming since they didn't post anything on their twitter and IG for weeks, not their blogs either. I just didn't want to point it out because I was so afraid that it might become a jinx. But as much as reality hurts, they did, they disbanded T_T And to think that it's Kazuya, my most fave of the two, who decided to leave makes it worse for me. After reading his message on LDH website, I now know the reason. Though it's really saddening, it's his own life, can't blame him for that.
I spent last night crying myself to sleep. Woke up at 3, checked Satoshi's IG (Kazuya deleted his IG) and reading fans' messages there made me cry again T_T I feel so sad for Satoshi T___T
I hope they are still good friends even though they are now in separate ways, and maybe someday I can see them sing together again. 絆は永遠。
Now I wish VBS 2 and Reason for Breathing were released into DVD so I can relive those amazing moments with them. The best duo group I've ever seen. My favorite vocalists after ATSUSHI.
Kazuya kun, Satoshi kun, thank you for the wonderful BREATHE, for the lovely songs and those wonderful voices you two have given me. I wish you the best of luck in the future. I love you.
Happy birthday, my dear Alan. Keep being the awesome you. ILYSM!
And Avex was being so generous for releasing GENE's PAGES PV on Alan's birthday. I wasn't expecting this at all because there was no news at all that PAGES PV would be released today (or maybe I missed it). The song is so beautiful I cried a bit when I first listened to it. And watching the PV brought back all those wonderful memories of GENE EX. I'm so proud of their achievement. Though they are not as big as their senpais yet, but the feelings of being there with them through the process is really something *sobs* dayem, why am I being so sappy all of a sudden lol!
Keep doing your best, GENE. Keep being humble, no matter how much fame has brought you <3
I already made my pre-order as soon as the mobile bonus was announced. Another set of GENE's signature hahahaha...bought all versions of course lol! I keep telling myself that I should stop buying all versions because I always end up not opening my copies even though I have received them OTL but it's hard to resist when it comes to GENE hahaha...And this time I also got all music cards! Not gonna do the same mistakes again with Evergreen music cards when they were all sold out just when I was about to order them *sobs* and my oh my! the music cards are awesome! can't wait to see the badges. These badges are the reason why I love music cards XD
awesome covers! I love the CD+DVD cover most <3
once coin CD
Can't wait to see the PV. There will be 2 PVs in this single. YAAAAAAASSSS!
The best thing about attending their live abroad is you get to experience things that will never happen in Japan, which is being able to take pics and record the live lol! I only took a few pictures though (a few compared to my other friends XD) and I only made a recording of the performers' part because I wanted to enjoy the live as much as I could.
The venue in Taiwan was actually very close to Taipei 101 building. I got lost a bit when I first looked for the venue. When I found my way back to Taiwan 101 it was actually very close lol.
The Taiwan live was very special because it fell on my birthday. It was definitely the best birthday ever in my life. Again, I went alone but that didn't really matter because I am used to going to concerts alone XD
I made quite a lot of Japanese friends there, most of them were those who took the package tour. One of them that I got close real quick is Nanamin. She happens to love ONE OK ROCK as well so we had a really nice fangirling time about GENE and OOR. Oh, she loves Reo (and it seems that all the new Japanese friends I met that day were dominated by Reo fans XD).
( best days of my lifeCollapse )
GENEちゃん、World Tour お疲れ様でした！
I got back from my Hokkaido trip 3 days ago from watching GENERATION EX in Asahikawa on 23 May and Sapporo on 25 May. It felt sooooo good to able to visit Japan again, especially visiting the place for the first time. I won the ballot for the show on 23 May but failed so many times to get the ticket on 25 May I had to buy the ticket from the internet lol! The ticket I won from EXFAMILY was such a 神席 because it was the fifth row from the stage and since my seat is at the most left so I practically sat in the first row of the left side of the stage *cries while touching my mobile ticket lol*
I was afraid that I would get lost finding the venue because that was my first visit to Asahikawa but thank God the map I had printed helped me a lot and it turned out the venue was only 20-minute walk (I love walking btw XD).
When I got there I kept on looking at the balcony hoping that I could see Ryota hahaha because he always updates the blog posting the pictures while doing his "adventure" XD No luck though, I think I came too late or he was just that good at hiding himself from our sights lol! I queued for the goods. I didn't manage to get Mendy's phone case online so I bought it at the venue. I also bought some other goods that my friends asked me to buy. I didn't buy Evergreen CD for the members' private goods and backstage pass because I know my luck just sucks when it comes to it lol! The venue was open exactly 30 minutes before the concert started and OMG I couldn't help squealing when I saw my seat. THANK YOU GOD! When I saw that there were two boxes on the left side stage with a towel and some frisbees in it, I squealed even more because I knew those were prepared for the boys OMG THE THOUGHT OF SEEING THEM THAT CLOSE MY HEART WAS ABOUT TO EXPLODE T_T
( THE AMAZING NIGHTS!Collapse )
The next time I see the boys again will be on my birthday. I really didn't expect it at all that they would hold a concert on my birthday. I'm glad I didn't ballot for Sandaime's BLUE PLANET even though it also falls on my birthday. I kept saying I didn't have enough money for that but when GENE announced the second batch of their world tour in Asia and their Taiwan tour falls on my birthday, I decided to go without even thinking twice LMAO! What can I say, apart from EXILE, GENE is my life *runs*
So yeah, I'll work hard for their Taiwan and HongKong tour too. I'll see you again soon, GENE <333
I'm loving this 01.30 preview so much I can't stop listening to it T__T
Feb 18, please come sooner!
It's been raining non-stop since Saturday evening. Sunday was a rainy day too but luckily it didn't rain as hard as it did in the evening. Went to Bogor to attend a Smappy's wedding, and of course I went there with my crazy smappies fellows XD Such a chaos in the car but it was really fun. It's always fun whenever time is spent with the right people <3
Rain continued until Monday and it was really non-stop and Jakarta, once again, become a waterpark, a view that you can find every year during rainy season here. Gosh! I'm sure you all know how much I HATE rainy season. With all the flood and the traffic, Jakarta is really hell during rainy season T_T (oh the love and hate I have for this city T__T). This is the second day I've skipped work because it's still flooding here. Have to be very careful with the use of clean water because we have very limited amount now :(
sigh. Jakarta oh Jakarta...
Dad insisted on drying all parts of the house, which is better for him tbh, otherwise he would just sit in the living room, monitoring the flood level outside the house, which makes me more stressful because he looked so stressful while doing that -.-
Btw, it's another complete fail with the ballot results of GENE Hall tour in Japan. My goodness, I've tried four mobile services, and I even had help from friends to help me ballot for the tickets, but all failed T__T I actually won 1 ticket from EXFAMILY for Hokkaido show, but I really want to attend the ones in Tokyo with Iqaa T_T LDH mobile is my only chance now. Not sure if I can find tickets at reasonable prices online. Some of the tickets are sold at 150,000 to 200,000 yen LMAO!
on a happier note, this has been on loop since I woke up this morning, which means 6 hours ago. EXILE is back slaying \o/
I'm crying over this perfection called 情熱の花
