Memorable Concert BIGBANG ALIVE TOUR 2012

What can I say about this one? yes, I have to admit I'm a fan girl since I was born XD literally! Even when I was a child around 3 years old , I already watched music stage and music video on tv (in the late 80's and early 90's the singers always performed in studio to promote their music *even nowadays*) I just love music so much but dunno why I never be a real singer hahahaha ( yes I had been in choir ;p) I still wonder about it lol. I loved NKOTB * my first boyband I guess* lol I jumped on my bed every time I listened their music, MJ is one of my favorite singer too! well until today I still enjoy music in every genres from classic to hip hop, from country to rock. I follow and hear the music around the world, from east to west and west to east.

Now, who doesn't know about Kpop? they also called it "Korean Wave" actually before Kpop, Jpop and Jrock had become a star with millions fans in the world. let say.... SMAP, Kinki Kids, Winds, Arashi, News, Kattun and Hey Say Jump! and for Jrock the legend LARUKU, they had a great concert around Asia, SE Asia and even in French and US.

Same like a fashion, trend and life it's a circle! now Kpop turns ;) Actually in the mid to late 90 and early 2000 they had a quite famous girl and boy bands such as H.O.T , S.E.S, Fin.KL, Shinhwa, etc but at that time Jpop was too shine (their concept was a brand new in pop culture, their concert so awesome with hi-tech) so most people prefer Jpop than Kpop (but some people already love kpop at that time, HOT and Shinhwa very famous)

Well around all the Kpop super star I have some favorites ( I love them because their music and concept not their face) but the most I love is BIGBANG! *yes B to the I to the Bang2!!* lol and I also love 2NE1. I always wanna go to concert someday * I wished it since I was a child* I love to watched concerts and I collect concert dvds. But unlucky I didn't have money, and time, the ticket was very expensive to me. So right now since I become an adult I earn my own money and at the same time I heard Bigbang will come to Jakarta I made a decision I had to watch it!! must watch it....

13 October 2012 
I was so excited about their concert I bought the crown stick, wear shirt with Bigbang's logo, give a present for G Dragon aka Jiyong ( I admire him as a person, he's really hardworking, passionate generous and I think gifted, but to be honest I also feel he has a warm heart and sensitive *blush*lol ), I like him just the way he is.

So the queue was so crazy hahahahaha the fans had been there since morning! (the concert started at 8 pm) Oh my...... the location was on the beach so the weather was like a hell!!! I came at 2 pm >.< everybody really excited and happy *for sure*

well when we were inside the building and sat to wait the concert, they played Bigbang musics and everybody sing a long~ niceee :) the ambiance was so great! They played GD new song "Crayon" too!
And finally the concert began with the short movie and when the curtain was dropped, we could see the boys inside capsules and Still Alive Intro was played and at the same time Jiyong said "Jakarta, make some noise!" then followed with Tonight as an opening song. Gosh I got goosebumps!!! the energy was incredible, I was speechless, I just can scream, jump and sing together with them.... hahahaha. Still Alive *intro* followed with Tonight was the best opening songs that I've ever heard..... they grabbed fans the energy and emotion. It was my first concert and I really...really.... really love it and would never forget about that night.... if they come back again I absolutely will watch them :)

About their music, stage and performance what I can say..... addictive, playful and creative. I love people who has a great concept in their mind when they want to do something. Because concept always has vision and mission, and they are! Every time they release a new song I can hear their music become better than before, improve, and more creative. And their music, concept, style and fashion have inspired me a lot! I work and eat arts but in different media, but music has affected me so much. Thanks for a great concert! wish can see you guys soon :)

Off Day Pleasure

Since I have my own business off days seem like something precious and can't be predicted. Today I spent my time on my bed lol..... reading The Winter Traveler book by Erza S.T. Outside is very sunny and hot, but when I read that book I can feel the snow.... eat a nice cake and food, go to history places, opera, etc...... ahhh Je vais aller a Paris, Italy and Austria... :)

Especially when he talks about Sacher Torte di Hotel Sacher ahhhh I can feel the chocolate melt in my mouth........

My reading time today was really "me time", reading a nice traveler book and listening Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin songs...and eat Fleur and Cherry Mint macarons from Le Rouge Flamingo Patisserie what a fabs day!! Make my day like in Europe :)

Butler Cafe

Since I was child I already love all about japan especially their culture (traditional and modern), language, cuisine, people, and art. One of my favorite pop culture is about their theme cafes, they are outstanding concept, give more than expectation. 

I have heard about this cafe for ages and to be honest I love about butler concept because basically I love everything about vintage and traditional and 16-18 centuries, English or french theme. So Butler Cafe concept has been my final project (entrepreneurship), and I got A+ for this lol. But unlucky I have not been in Akihabara before and I really wanna try a glimpse of butler cafe's experience *for real*, well a few days ago we had AFA (Anime Festival Asia) okay maybe I'm kind of otaku girl hahahah but to be honest I'm not into the anime things I prefer manga (only a good story I collected), Jdrama, Jpop and Jculture and for sure their food.

Finally me and my friends went to this festival for meet the butlers lol. we had to wait 4 hours to get in *so tired* but lucky for four of us we worked in hotel and we are hotelier so stand for 4 hours is not really a big deal hahahha... our legs seem like a stone!! ;p

Actually when you're talking about butler or maid cafe, you're talking about experience and about service, how about food? I just can say it so so, nothing really special. The price also very expensive *no wonder*. Now I really really understand why theme cafes in Japan are very popular. Just for an hour you can forget all the bad things in reality life, and you won't never forget the nice experience you got in theme cafe. In this busy, crazy world theme cafe could be like an Eden for us.....

Note: Communication skill, marketing and good looking is very important things for these cafes :)

Le Petit Paris

Being a 27 years old seems like "argghh! my 20's almost end!" I'm still single and still fabulous hahaha.. well like usual, I love to treat my friends at my balcony, instead go to restaurant (I wish I have a backyard!). I always wanna make outdoor party for ages but I just can make it happened since last year. Last year I made English theme with high tea style, and the lovely thing in this party was I got the limited edition of Twinings tea "Royal Wedding" edition... yeay!! me and my guests drank it like we were invited by the Royal family lol. ( I will post about this later)

This year I want something simple and a bit mature, so Le Petit Paris be my theme this year.... I don't like formal things,so I made casual french dinner party with 5 courses!! hahaha but don't expect too much I just made it very simple because I was very busy with my little patisserie.... but I was so happy when my friends eat my dishes with smile :)

3rd courses - Salad with Dijon and Olive oil dressing
