To The Best Mom Ever

お母さん、
お誕生日おめでとう!
いつも元気で生きていくように 
&gt;:D< big hug 

Hey, friends! I remember when i first uploaded a photo of my mini danbo and big danbo together in facebook, and i told my mother that it's not only me who also had danbo, but my friends, too. Then she asked me to take a photo of a big danbo together with 3 mini danbo. The reason why my mom wanted 3 mini danbo was because the big danbo would represent herself while the other 3 mini danbo would represent her children; me, my sister, and my brother. But, i hadn't had the chance to do what she wanted, so i decided to do that for her birthday. I borrowed the other 2 mini danbo from Dhilla and Akira, and Akira also lent me his 35mm lens for a bonus ;) hehehe.
I've been downloading digi scrapbook freebies a lot but rarely got a chance to make any digital scrapbook. Here are some of great resources for digi scrapbook stuff: shabbyprincess, freedigitalscrapbooking, digiscrapdepot, etc *you can easily find those kind of sites by just googling ;p 
I finished making this happy birthday card 3 days ago, and i really wanted to uploaded as soon as possible. But since it supposed to be uploaded on the exact day of my mom's birthday, so i needed to hold up a little. Uh, that was a kind of hard though. hehehe.
Well, i'm not good at finding words, but happy birthday mom! I love you :D

Wouldn't Change A Thing

So, this song is originally sang by Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas in Camp Rock 2 *honestly haven't watched this one*. But the one that i post here is a cover version by Jenny Suk and TJ Brown, and i personally think that they sing this song better than the real singers. hehehe. So, enjoy :D



It's like he doesn't hear a word I say,
His mind is somewhere far away,
And I don't know how to get there,
It's like,
(She's way too serious)
All he wants is to chill out,
(She's always in a rush)
He makes me wanna pull all my hair out,
(And interrupting)
Like he doesn't even care,
(Like she doesn't even care)

You,
me
We're face to face
But we don't see eye to eye
Like fire and rain
(Like fire and rain)
You can drive me insane
(You can drive me insane)
But I can't stay mad at you for anything
We're Venus and Mars
(We're Venus and Mars)
We're like different stars
(Like different stars)
But you're the harmony to every song I sing
And I wouldn't change a thing

She's always trying to save the day
Just wanna let my music play
She's all or nothing
But my feelings never change
(Why, do you try to read my mind?)
I try to read her mind
(It's not good to psychoanalyze)
She tries to pick a fight
To get attention
That's what all of my friends say
(That's what all of my friends say)

You,
Me
We're face to face
But we don't see eye to eye
Like fire and rain
(Like fire and rain)
You can drive me insane
(You can drive me insane)
But I can't stay mad at you for anything
We're Venus and Mars
(We're Venus and Mars)
We're like different stars
(Like different stars)
But you're the harmony to every song I sing
And I wouldn't change a thing

When I'm yes, she's no
When I hold on, he just lets go

We're perfectly imperfect
But I wouldn't change a thing, no
We're like fire and rain
(Like fire and rain)
You can drive me insane
(You can drive me insane)
But I can't stay mad at you for anything
We're Venus and Mars
(We're Venus and Mars)
We're like different stars
(Like different stars)
But you're the harmony to every song I sing
And I wouldn't change a thing

But I can't stay mad at you for anything
We're Venus and Mars
(We're Venus and Mars)
We're like different stars
(Like different stars)
But you're the harmony to every song I sing
And I wouldn't change a
Wouldn't change a thing

Field Work Experience

Hi friends! So finally i'm writing this post which has been postponed for way too long. It's about my trip to Niigata perfecture which was started on Feb 3rd until Feb 13th. This trip wasn't for holiday but actually it's for field work practice as one of the required course for the sophomore students in my department at college. 
I chose to go to Joetsu Tokyo Nodai, during winter *not summer which is actually the most common time to go for agriculture practice* for some reasons. Anyway, there i was with 4 other friends spending 10 days together and doing some agricultural practices. Since it was still winter, there weren't so many things to do. All what we did were doing dried pumpkin packaging, harvesting autumn poem, and the best i've ever experienced there--harvesting radish.
I'd tell you why i think that harvesting radish is my best experience that i had there. So, long time before i went there, i've asked my professor what would we do there since it was winter. And he answered, "We would harvest the radish." Then, after i spent more than a week there, we still didn't do that. So, i was a kind of waiting for the moment while my friends wished that we would never do that. hehe. Finally, after waiting for quite long, we were asked to harvest the radish in the last day of our field work period. To be honest, it wasn't an easy job. We needed to dig the snow for about 1 meter deep. I was like wondering how i could i do that since i had never done that before. But, with full of spirit, i managed to dig the hole by myself and could harvest 5 radishes. The most wonderful part of that work was, when i could finally pull the radish out from the ground (it's hard, trust me!), i raised the radish up high and screamed happily. I felt like i was a champion of something. hehe.
So, here i put few photos that were taken by cellphone's camera. The quality isn't so good, sorry for that, but i hope it still proper enough to share my experiences there :)

I Was Trying To Be...

Hello friends! It's been so long since the last time i wrote here. I was far away from Tokyo for about 10 days but have been back for almost a week though. Actually there are a lot of experiences that i had during those 10 days that i'd love to share here. But maybe i'll hold it up a bit more because apparently i have another thing that i want to write right now.
So, lets the story begin...
For those people around me, i'm sure most of them are already aware that cooking isn't something that i could really enjoy. Yeah, it's true. Unlike most girls, i don't like being in the kitchen, preparing and cooking food. When it's still possible to have meal outside, cheap and healthy enough, i won't bother myself to think what should i cook for today. I don't like the feeling of putting too many efforts and times to prepare food. Furthermore, often when i try to cook, then i finish it, i'm not hungry anymore, i loose my appetite (not because it's not delicious). See? I don't really see a significant reason for making me want to cook everyday.
But, since now i'm 21 already, recently i started to think about the future. What if i become someone's wife and i can't cook? So, for the future's sake, i've promised to myself to try to cook as often as possible.
I started from very simple kinds of cooking. At least it has the nutrients that would be important. Although i don't really like vegetables, but i understand that later, in the future, i should prepare food with vegetables also for the family.
So, yesterday i made meat and vegetables saute. That was the first time i cooked something like that. Really. I know it might be too easy for most of you guys, but as for me, i was confused for a few times regarding what seasonings should i put into, how the order is, what should be done first, etc. Anyway, i could finally made it and it was tasty enough for me.
Then i showed a photo of the food to him. Well, i didn't hope that he will praise or what, because i knew it wasn't so great to made such food. Then he commented. Actually his comment wasn't insulting nor bad, but somehow made me quite disappointed and lost my spirit to cook again. Huh, a very sensitive me. 
So, that's it. Maybe it will take weeks till i finally go to the kitchen again. Bye cooking spirit ;'(

Bye Exams! Hellooo FUN DAYS :D

Yo, guys! It's me AJ! *uuups no noooo..not AJ but it's me edhika :D
I've been having this AJ Rafael fever ever since dhilla shared a youtube video link of him. He's so cool and talented and a really great figure of best friend for the people around him i guess :)
From almost all of the videos that he uploaded to his channel, my very favorite one is his duet with Jenny Suk singing a cover of 1234 (plain white t's) and best i ever had (drake). You can access that video here.
And here, i want to share you another video from, which i also like, for sure. This is an original song by AJ himself. Enjoy :)


Btw, starting from today i'm free from final exams. Yeay for being free :D A long holiday is really close now. But, i need to go for agricultural practice first, to Niigata, starting from Feb 4th for ten days long. As for you know, Niigata is one of some prefectures in Japan which is experiencing the heaviest snow for this winter. So, i guess i should be prepared for the killin' snow (because it's too cold, and i don't really like that T_T). I'm quite prepared actually, i've bought a pair of snow boots which was on sale for 50%. And  do you what was the reason that boots were on sale? Because they're shocking pink! But, who cares anyway :D
Speaking of being free from exam, (since it's now already Feb 2nd, so it's yesterday, yes sooo yesterday) yesterday after i finished the last exam, i re-checked an email which was sent by my mom, telling me to see a tamiya store. She gave me the link, so there i tried to find the address and the instruction how to get to the store. Then, i went out from the dorm, started my another adventure to a new place. LOL. I really love it when i have to go to a new place, getting all the transportation info from the internet, sometimes i check on google map first then either i print it out or send the map to my phone (since i'm not using a smart phone, so i can't always rely on it to see gps or such a thing). Getting on the train, transfer from one line to another line, i've gotten used to it. I don't have that panic syndrome anymore like i used to have when I travelled alone. But here it is, one thing that still becomes a challenge for me, finding an address. Especially when the address is quite far from the station, and requires me to go through several blocks, furthermore, the station itself has so many gates. It makes me lost my cardinal directions! Well, but as long as the time is not so tight or in other words there's no need to worry about being late, i'll be enjoying so much the adventure of finding the address. I don't care if i got lost for a while. ahahaha. I believe that i can always find a way back home :)
So, that was what happened to me. I was lost! It was started with the map that i checked before i went to the tamiya store. The store is right next to mizuho bank. So, when i arrived in the right station, all i knew was that i should find that bank. After walking for a few minutes, i found the building of mizuho bank, but there was no tamiya store next to it. I decided to call the store and made sure that the store is still located in that area. They said they're still there. But i said i was right in front of the bank (i called using a public phone, and that was my first time here in Japan.LOL). And they said that i might be in front of another mizuho bank, not the one that should be next to the tamiya store. Well, okay then. I walked again, tried to find the store. It took me for more than 30 minutes and made me asked 4 people along the way until i finally found the store. Yeay for finally stepping my feet there :D And thanks God 3 from 4 people that i asked for directions could be really helpful (the other one didn't have any idea about the location of that another mizuho bank). Got no problems at all on the way back home.
So, i guess that's all for now, it's 1.31 am already here. Need to get a good sleep a.s.a.p. Good night everyone :D
