My Japanese Expreience (?)

My 3rd attempt of making sushi yesterday

Oha! Lately I've been feeling like a Japanese people. Why? I've made SUSHI. I saw my friend made sushi at my school's bazaar and I thought that it is kinda simple and worthy to try. But we don't use raw things like raw salmon. Even we want that in our sushi, the salmon is expensive and we don't have that much money either. So I used sausage, egg rolls and in that picture I add fried potatoes lol. But the taste was good XD

I did hanami even it is not in a real life. And as always I loooove watching animes or reading mangas. And I hope someday I will have the real hanami in that sakura land X3

You said HANAMI? Yep, hanami is taken from Japanese language which is means seeing sakura tree in spring. I guess that is the right definition of hanami. Usually, people have a picnic under the sakura trees. They party and gather with their family or their friends from their company etc.

My hanami at grand fantasia. Tee hee~
Wikipedia's definition of hanami:

Hanami (花見, lit. "flower viewing") is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty of flowers, "flower" in this case almost always meaning cherry blossoms or ume blossoms. From the end of March to early May, sakura bloom all over Japan, and around the first of February on the island of Okinawa. The blossom forecast (桜前線 sakurazensen, literally cherry blossom front) is announced each year by the weather bureau, and is watched carefully by those planning hanami as the blossoms only last a week or two. In modern-day Japan, hanami mostly consists of having an outdoor party beneath the sakura during daytime or at night. Hanami at night is called yozakura (夜桜, literally night sakura).


That is my story, what's yours? XD
Well, have a great weekend people!

Ano Hana's OST - Secret Base ~Kimi ga Kureta Mono~ (10 Years After)



*This is an anime that made me cry a lot in the ending beside Angel Beats ToT. Besides, the theme songs are great too. Will there any other animes that makes the watcher and the lover cry like those two animes? We'll see.*

I'll never forget being with you at the end of summer
With our dreams of the future and big hopes
I believe that ten years later in August,
we'll meet again
Such great memories...

We met in a sudden instant at the intersection on the way home
And you called out to me, and said "Let's go home together"
I was so bashful that I hid my face with my bag
But I was so very, very happy

Ah, the fireworks burst in the night sky so nicely, it kinda hurts
Ah, the wind flows by with the time

We had so many happy, fun adventures
Together in our secret base

I'll never forget being with you at the end of summer
With our dreams of the future and big hopes
I believe that ten years later in August, we'll meet again
I knew that, until the end, you were shouting
"Thank you" from the bottom of your heart
Farewell while smiling and holding back tears is so hard
Such great memories...

Ah, summer break will end soon
Ah, I hope the sun and moon make friends

We had so many sad, lonely arguments
Together in our secret base

I knew that, until the end, you were shouting
"Thank you" from the bottom of your heart
Farewell while smiling and holding back tears is so hard
Such great memories...

Nothing can be done about your sudden transfer

Welcome July! X3


Juli ya? Bagiku, Juli itu identik sama tahun ajaran baru ditambah ulang tahunku! Tanggal 2 Juli kemaren aku ulang tahun ke-17. Sweet seventeen katanya. Padahal apa yang manis? Umur 17 tahun aku cepet cepet bikin KTP sebelum liburan berakhir. KTP itu penting untuk urusan di kemudian hari sih..

Ulang tahunku tahun ini dimulai dengan teror ucapan selamat ulang tahun di wall fb. Ada juga yang lewat sms sih. Sahabatku dari SMP si Dewi sampe nelpon dan minta maaf berulang kali gara-gara dia lupa kalo aku ulang tahun hari itu. Dengan banyaknya ucapan selamat menempuh umur baru ini, aku sadar kalo di luar sana masih banyak orang yang peduli sama kehadiranku. They realize that I'm still here. Karena aku sadar aku ga gitu punya banyak temen akrab. Beginilah jadinya.

Dan aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Gak kerasa minggu depan udah masuk sekolah lagi. Udah jadi senior yang paling senior di antara senior lainnya (?) Jadi kakak kelas yang ga punya "kakak kelas" lainnya. Harus jadi panutan yang bagus untuk adek-adek kelasnya. Jadi kakak kelas yang promosiin english club ntar yay! XD Jadi yang senior juga ga enak sih.. Di ujung semester terakhir banyak yang harus dikerjain. Terutama ujian nasional ditambah SNMPTN buat kuliah ntar. Aaaaah gak kebayang gimana jadinya..

Sekarang aku punya tujuan kemana aku bakal ngelanjutin kuliah: UNIVERSITAS BRAWIJAYA MALANG! Kenapa unbra? Karena aku mau ambil jurusan sastra dan pendidikan bahasa Jepang disana. Dan kenapa MALANG? Because it was my childhood and I love being there! Dan bakal lebih mudah berbaur disana karena aku masih punya banyak temen yang kadang suka meneror dengan pertanyaan "Kapan balik ke Malang?" atau " Kapan liburan ke Malang?" Motivasi lain untuk kuliah disana karena biaya hidup lebih murah daripada disini. Dan aku kangen banget suasana dingin dan mall-nya yang behamburan XD

Semoga bulan ini jadi bulan yang baik untuk mengawali segala hal. Amin~
