Everything's gonna be alright

It was past the bakery that always smelled so good
Around the corner at an exciting accessories shop
And down, down, down, a dangerous-looking alley
A place hidden away, probably once a bar
They call it their atelier

Have you ever met someone who was ‘scary’?
Right from the start you thought ‘this person scares me’

‘if this person’s around, he’ll wreck my life’
Right when I met him, I had that feeling
One of those people you never know what they’ll do

-Hayasaka Yukari, Paradise Kiss-

When a friend of mine recommended this movie a month ago, I went Google for it right away! Because it lines up my favorite stars, no joke!

Mukai Osamu, Kitagawa Keiko, Igarashi Shunji, Yamamoto Yusuke, Kaku Kento

Only since it's too new, so it hasn't been subbed by anyone. But this long awaited subbed version is at last available!

*damned excited*

I can't stop smiling ever since the beginning of the story; imagining how sweet the plot would be with awesome actors in it.

Paradise Kiss, directed by Shinjo Takehiko is an adaptation from a manga by Yazawa Ai. It's about a girl named Hayasaka Yukari who lives up to fulfill her mum's expectation; went to prestigious private high school, cram school after school hour, home tutor during the holiday etc to pass an entrance exam for a first-rank university.

One day on her way to cram school, she was scouted by Arashi. Asked whether she would like to be a model for their ‘Paradise Kiss’ clothing label. Tired of her routine, Yukari left home and agreed upon the offer. That leads her to Yazawa Fashion Academy meeting George and his team; Isabella, Miwako and Arashi.

Kitagawa Keiko as Hayasaka Yukari

Mukai Osamu as George Koizumi
A genius designer of Yazawa Academy who started designing since he was 5. He is eccentric and has cold demeanor. He has the you-don’t-know-what-he-would-do-next aura.

Igarashi Shunji as Isabella
Apparently believes he should have been born as a girl. More like a mother figure to the members of ParaKiss. He is the epitome of high class and femininity. Isabella was inspired by George's very first dress during childhood and decided to work with him.

Kaku Kento as Nagase Arashi
Has a taste for punk style, piercings, and alternative music. He is Miwako's boyfriend; they have both known each other (along with Hiro) from childhood.

Omasa Aya as Sakurada Miwako
Childhood friend of Arashi and Hiro. Perky and lively.

Yamamoto Yusuke as Tokumori Hiroyuki
Yukari's classmate and apparently Yukari likes him. But that turned out to be an unrequited love since he still has Miwako in mind. So they stayed best friends. Hiro is a childhood friend of Miwako and Arashi. He likes Miwako but has to give her up when he moved out. Later hiro finds out Yukari is hanging out with George, he was surprised to see Miwako and Arashi were a part of the team. Knowing they’re both dating, he decided to forget her and confess to Yukari.

Gorgeous setting. The plot is as expectedly sweet! Mukai Osamu played the character of George so perfectly; he's tall, with innocent charming smile, he walked as if a prince coming out of a comic book!

To see Igarashi acting like a woman is something I could never imagine. It's a waste of his good look! But he's still awesome acting as Isabella.

I personally think both Hiro and George are sweet to Yukari, but you gonna have to watch it to know who ends up with who (surprise invalid to those who've read the manga)

Yeah, you've to watch this! (not recommended to those who does not prefer romance)
It's about determination+passion+dream+fashion+inspiration+love

The opening theme is 'Hello -paradise kiss-' by Yui
The closing theme is 'You' by Yui
(that adds up why I wanted to watch this, that adds up why I cannot not love Yui :D)

Inserted songs
'I know you're not alone' by Sweetbox
'Everything's gonna be alright' by Sweetbox

Ps: everything's gonna be alright is my Sweetbox's favorite track when I was in kindergarten!

On the ground of love

Not all women without hijab are bad, but good women always wear one

On the ground of my love to all Muslim women out there, I’m sharing this.

I stumbled over this quote and find it so beautiful; this as a point to ponder to those who keep wanting people to stop having stigma over non-hijab wearer.

It's a phenomenon

Holiday; it’s considered a routine for some, but I rather take that as a phenomenon. It’s something so natural by means that are not fully understood. Most of us will stay up late at night, before the last day of lecture. Watching dramas, chatting, reading novels like there’s no tomorrow. The next day coming to class, soul already left for home sweet home. Exchanging external hard disk for variety shows and more dramas, after classes’ over you’ll hangout with friends for movies and window shopping that was held back for so long, eat good food and chill! Then get back home and start packing with excitement, can’t wait to be home.

It’s the universal feeling, I admit that. Only I have to add a little to my pre-holiday event, since I-assume-everyone-knows-that-I-am-a-packaphobic, well packing has never been that easy and exciting.

But anyway, I survived the unnecessary fear of packing my luggage and I’m home now! I’m home after acting like a baby for mum to personally fetch me instead of taking a bus or train, (and this cold-nasal-pitch-plus-coughing voice of mine works!)

I admit I haven’t been updating so regularly these days. So many things happened around me, that I wish I could spill out but honestly I’m more to a poetic and dramatic writer rather than a straight-forward one. So every entry of mine needs delicate touch ups and it’s least likely to be done within short time (except for short emotional quotes).

But I’ll try to keep up the ‘happened things’ sooner or later.

Ps: *mixed feelings*mixed feelings*mixed feelings*

I missed Anas

Stay strong!

They say before you start a war, you better know what you’re fighting for

Be steady on your feet
No matter the trouble you meet

You don’t have to feel safe to feel unafraid

Lost and found

Me: I'm trying to dig the happiness out of me
G: what?
Me: I'm trying to dig the happiness out of me. I know it's somewhere inside, so I'll try to elicit the aura
G: for who?
Me: in the end i did it for myself

Maybe I've really found it
What I've missed for over these years
I've been looking for it
or honestly I didn't

Maybe I just let it slipped without wanting to get a hold of it

The me i was
The missing me
The me, that was once lost and now found

Guess I can smile ear-to-ear now.

I've found the old me who're in love with novels!!

ps: you guys should really check out the awesome Big Bad Wolf book fair!!

Counter entry

Deeper than usual *counter entry*

Somehow I felt like I didn’t sink deeper into bed as usual.
Maybe because my heart was stolen
But I don’t know who did that


Ps: Lappy background changed from Daito Shunsuke to Nakamura Yuichi

I'm craving for...

Sushi? That’s not it; though I haven’t had any chicken gyouza for months now.

I’ve craving for a stiletto!

I wonder which could be awesome; deep purple, vague yellow, crimson, dark brown or blue black.

Well, truth is I don’t need one too high.
This high would be fine (I wish it comes in purple)

And you’ll ask me, what’s the difference? That’s already damned high!

What I meant was, I don’t need something this high

Right. You won’t be able to understand unless you try those. I mean, 4 inches is my limit.

Honestly I’m done with black. Plus covered ones made my nails gone a bit ugly. It literally tied me with formality while walking around the malls. I need something more casual and laid-back. Something a little bit more stands out but not striking.

And of course perfectly paired with handbag the like.

But these days, mum kept reminding me
‘tengah-tengah belajar lagi ni tak payah la nak beli-beli sangat. Nak melawa tunggu kerja nanti’


One of the reasons I’m resisting my lust towards those stilettos.

So I’m gonna put these pics next to me on bed. Let's drift to dreamland together.

An empty house

This house has turned empty
Literally from the usual laughter and the chattering
The teasing, the noise
Everything was paused for a while

One has lost the father
One has left, to be around her
Leaving the rest with burdenful dilemma

This pause, I wonder if it would really be a hiatus.

Many could move on
It's just the matter of time
As many as who couldn't
Then it'll never be the same

Meet Chiaki

My spirit is fun-loving and playful
With your sense of fun you share my playful spirit
By always finding the fun in everything you do
You have discovered the secret to a joyful life

Meet Chiaki, she's a symbol of 'joy'

It’s a kokeshi doll that i fell in love with. I’ve waited the moment to own one for so long and it arrived at last.

Ps: for a moment, I felt like I was the ballerina figure spinning gracefully bounded by polar ground beneath, inside a music box.
