just a crazy idea : Cosplay as Yuna ?!?

Hi there,folks.. how you all been doing? how many years has it been since the last time I posted something here? hahaha.. oh life, surely you’ve made my days seemed gone by unstoppably, lots of issues in my head. Some major doubts in my belief (well, at least I thought it was my belief,but then I realize, how can I say “my belief” when I don’t & can’t even believe in it?) , some dragging on the working-life, but I guess life is not always about bad things that we complain, cause I found Love these days.. this Love, came to me out of nowhere, out of prediction, from the one I was so surely will not be commiting to be in a relationship with.. but somehow, this Love came to me, unconditionally.. and I can never thank God enough for this..

Left : Yuna FFX-2 the Gunner.  Right : Yuna FFX the Summoner.

Left : Yuna FFX-2 the Gunner. Right : Yuna FFX the Summoner.

Btw! I got a crazy idea these lately (since the day I visit another GJUI, actually :P) that I wanna do some serious cosplay! that has to be a character from a famous game / anime.. so commonly people would notice the character instantly.. so then I began to choose, my first choices are on all Final Fantasy girls, like Rinoa, Yuna, Quistis, Tifa, Rikku, etc. Then I choose Yuna, but I wasn’t sure if it’ll be Yuna from FFX or FFX-2.

Yuna the Gunner, from FFX-2

Yuna the Gunner, from FFX-2

so.. after some considerations in my head (plus a very encouraging lover :3) , I decided I’ll do the FFX-2 version, Yuna the Gunner..!!!!
the costume is much.. more.. daring than the other Yuna 😛 that’ll take a lot of confidence in me to pull that cosplay off perfectly when the costume is done.. (plus some serious weight-loss program, hahahaha…) Well, let’s just see how this crazy idea will turned out.. Or maybe I should just try to cosplay as Lara Croft first??

Nihon-go (Japanese Language) Basic#1

Hey ALL.. any of you who might get redirected to this page, or just got lost in wwww (whole wild web world) & found this unknown & unimportant blog of mine here..??

Sit back, & relax.. Enjoy these basic lessons I can give you about Japanese language.. For this time, I can only give you the basics, maybe some other day I’ll post more & more advanced lessons about nihon-go (Nihon-go = japanese language; nihon = Japan, -go = language)

At first, what shall I give you.. Hmm..
Ah yes,maybe some of the basic greetings on the daily life in Japan, how’s that,huh? Ok then, Here it goes..

1. Good Morning = お早うございます / おはようございます [ohayou gozaimasu] : o-ha-yo-go-zai-mas.
Or, in the short/casual term = お早う / おはよう [ohayou] : o-ha-yo.

2. Good Afternoon = 今日は / こんにちは [konnichiha] : kon-ni-ci-wa.

3. How are you? = お元気ですか? [ogenki desuka?] : o-geng-ki-des-ka?.

4. Good Evening = 今晩は / こんばんは [konbanha] : kom-ban-wa.

5. Good Night (usually used before people getting sleep,not for opening greeting) = お休みなさい / おやすみなさい [oyasuminasai] : o-ya-su-mi-na-sai.
Or, in the short/casual term = おやすみ [oyasumi] : o-ya-su-mi.

6. Thank you = ありがとうございます [arigatou gozaimasu] : a-ri-ga-to-go-za-i-mas.
Or, in more polite term (thank you very much) = どうもありがとうございます [doumo arigatou gozaimasu] : do-mo-a-ri-ga-to-go-zai-mas.
Or, in the short/casual term = ありがとう [arigatou] : a-ri-ga-to, Or just どうも [doumo] : do-mo.

7. You’re welcome (polite answer of ‘thank you’) = どういたしまして [douitashimashite] : do-i-ta-shi-mas-te.

8. Excuse me / pardon me = すみません [sumimasen] : su-mi-ma-seng.

9. I’m sorry (asking for forgiveness) = ごめんなさい [gomennasai] : go-men-na-sai.
Or, in the short/casual term (just ‘sorry’) = ごめん [gomen] : go-men.
Or, in more polite term (I’m very sorry) = もうしをわけございません [moushi o wake gozaimasen] : mo-shi-o-wa-ke-go-zai-ma-seng.

10. It’s ok / it’s alright = 大丈夫です / だいじょうぶです [daijoubu desu] : dai-jo-bu-des.
Or, in the short/casual term, remove “desu”, so just 大丈夫 / だいじょうぶ [daijoubu] : dai-jo-bu.

11. Yes = はい [hai] : hai’. No = いいえ [iie] : i-ye’.

There.. just a very very & totally basic & common greetings in nihon-go..

また会いましょう.. [mata aimashou] : ma-ta-ai-ma-syo. (See you later.. / Until we meet again..)

Nihon no Matsuri at Japan – Indonesia Expo 2008 (part 2)

Huff, akhirnya setelah kelar nyetrika cucian yg menggunung, & yukata yg susahnya & ribeudnya minta ampun utk disetrika, I’m free now..!!
& Finally, I can write this report..!! Woo hoo..!! Here goes..

9th November ’08, me & my bestgirl, gilang, started to dressed up at 8.50am in my house (she slept at my place at the night before *sleep over time!*).. Who knew, that we can actually use a not-obi fabric to become an obi, since gilang doesn’t have any obi for the yukata she’ll be wearing (that yukata is mine too, but I’ll be happy to lend it for gilang), we use a fabric called “songket”,waakakak.. But it turned out cute..!! I made the obi-knot myself, & gladly, gilang was happy about it.. Tee hee (^o^)y Here’s our first photo shoots, wekekek..

our fun-time..

After that, about 10.00am we went to the Expo..!! Thans to google earth, I can easily find the best route to get there, since I was driving by myself & gilang didn’t really know the route, so yes, of course I need guidance 😀 & about noon (12pm) we arrived, go straightly to Hall D, where the “Nihon no Matsuri” was held..
SOOOO MAAAAAANY PEOPLE were there..!!!! gilang & I were shocked! the crowds were 5x more than the last time we went there (2Nov’08).. The queue.. Geez.. Sick bro.. Indonesian people, Nihon-jin, were mixed up like a big pile of “cendol”, wahaahaha

Here’s the events that we enjoyed :
1. Tea Ceremony in the tatami room..

Kantoh lamps, see how tall it is??

This is the first time I’ve ever see such real japanese traditional thingy.. Those selected men, were about to pick up the very big & tall stick full of lamps, which it’s total weight is about 50kg, unbelievable…!!! & they’re holding it not just by ordinary grip, but they put it on their foreheads, on their necks, on their hips, even on their mouth..!! remember, 50 kg! such power..!!! all I can react was *sugooooii..! suggyeeee..!!* ;P
And also amazing is the taiko, the taiko-bangers are ladies..!!!! this is the first time in the world that the taiko-bangers are women!! usually has always men, but this, here in this very event, the debut of women taiko-bangers perform.. Kakkoi na onna.. *o*
The kanto & taiko event held twice that day, at noon (indoor) & at night (outdoor)..

4. the Food booth..
sorry, no picture for this, coz it was TERRIBLY CROWDED..!!! *totally exhausted after ‘the fight’, hahaha.. we had takoyaki & kakigori.. Crazy queue.. but the takoyaki, Hmmm.. oishiiii…

5. FREE TIME..!! While waiting for the next interesting event (coz I DO planned to come back home late ;p), Time for us to stroll around the expo to find cosplayers, taking pictures with them, or looking around the various booths, or sightseeing the japanese atmosphere, etc. etc.. Here’s the pictures..!!

There.. the last picture of me taken that day.. Such a memorial day for me.. & for my bestgirl too.. After the Kanto (noon session), there are lots and lots of events..!!! Choir, Musical Drama entitled “Kaguya-Hime”, Japanese live band (real nihonjin!! really funny..), and cabaret show.. Also other uncounted events..!!! Pusing jg gw klo harus sebutin semua-muanyuaa..

After enjoying the “Kanto” ceremony outside (20.30), we continue to enjoying the last atmosphere around.. SSOOOOOO MAAAANY PEOPLE….!!!! yet, SO E.X.C.I.T.I.N.G…!!! Thousands of people gathering to celebrate the golden year of friendship between our beloved country and the country WHICH I LOVE MORE..!!! huaahahahaha…

ANy way, about 20.50, the main Bon Odori stage was moved to the center of the free outdoor area (the same area for Kanto).. then, most of the people started gone crazy *BON ODORI!! BON ODORI!!!* while walking (even jumping2) aside the stage.. & finally, the BON ODORI started..!!!! & we all danced very very excitedly..!!! eventhough sometimes we moved mistakely, but WHAT THE HECK, WE WANNA DAAAANNCE..!!!!
and you know what, Saking gua semangatnya tuh ngedance Odori, geta (bakiak) gw smpet ‘ktinggalan’, and Obi (kain sabuk pinggang) gw sampe copot.. and keinjek2 sndiri..!! TWICE..!!! HUaakakakak.. yg ada gw sm gilang NGAKAK NGAKAK ga karuan.. smpe org2 yg di samping gw ikut2an geli.. ampun dah heboh banget.. pdhl itu udh jam 21.30an, but still, the atmosphere in that area, WAS UnBelievably LIVELY..!!! SO MUCH FUN..!!! All kinds of Tradisional Bon Odori songs was played.. hundreds of people moving in harmony and lively.. DEFINITELY I WON’T FORGET THAT..!! HOW COULD I..?!?? hahahaha..
after the Bon Odori, then the expo has finally come to an end..

But Seriously, Even until now, gw masih inget, waktu acara selesai and gw sm gilang jalan mnuju mobil mw pulang (dan bahkan sampe udah di tol), gua n gilang masih suka ‘kebawa’ sm lagu2nya.. *woo.. oo.. sawari nante oboro.. la la la la..* terutama lagunya chibi maruko-chan (gw ga ngerti judul aslinya apa).. *netsu da atte, wasurenaai..* —- *piichara..piichara.. pap paparppa..*

KyAAaaa.. I really wish I can be a real part of that tradition someday..!!! q(^o^)p
