dare to be formal

Pics by Zee Cris

ahoy.. now, I combine my grey polkadot sheer by Bodytalk with green unbranded satchel, brown wedges by Yongki Komaladi and put a sweet blue ribbon ring and the belt for formal events. Well, there are not so many formal events I've been attended since I'm not an important person anyway, haha.. but since first time I saw this sheer I was fallin in love, I bet someday I need formal suit so this kind of sheer is perfect one even u can wear it in informal events even hang out with ur friends, but dont wear it when you're hangin out in the mountain, lol..
my wedges are quite unique, when I wear it, it seems like not so high, but it's 7 cm, I think it's bcoz the half braid of the heels.
so, this photo session was not my usual photographer but my another friend Cris. He just learnt photography and he needed a model so that I was happy to help him since I loved to be pictured, haha.. life is just once so do what you wanna do, include being narcissistic as long as u can and no one is disturbed, LOL. So, thanks alot Cris! :) Enjoy!

the most romantic song this year

haha.. the title of this posting sounds funny to me, since it seems melo-dramatic or it feels like a little girl dreaming of a romantic wedding in the future (like i did) haha.. but yea, we are human (are we?) if we are normal enough as a human, there must be a romantic side of us, I guess. This guy brings my romantic side by this song. Owl City, I thought it was a band, but thats big no no! Adam Young behinds Owl City, he's a singer, a songwriter, programming, pianist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, and so on by just one name. How marvelous!
I know it's kinda old-fashioned since the song was published in 2009, and I just know it in 2011, damn! Well,  I live in another planet, so it can be understandable, haha.. Another annoying part is that Owl City will come to Indonesia on Oct 28th, but the tickets were sold out, flip, flipperin and flippin hell!!
And I copied the lyrics from where you can find many kinds of song's lyrics.

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly
The silence isn't so bad
Till I look at my hands and feel sad
Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone
But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist deep in thought because when
I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone
I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight
(Tonight, tonight, tonight...)

I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh if my voice could reach back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear:
"Oh darling I wish you were here"   

the bold parts are my fave parts :)
So ya, I really adore Owl City now. Do you agree that the lyrics are brilliant? Well, I do.

Mangkunegaran Performing Art

In the same day on my friend's b'day celebration, there was an art performance called Mangkunegaran Performing Art. Mangkunegaran is a castle in my city. It is a historical place which has cultural heritage included traditional dances, traditional music and instruments. I'm learning both of traditional dances and instruments, thats why I really interested on this performance and it was a really nice performance anyway. This is a yearly event and this year, the performance was held for two days on 20-21 May, 2011. Since the performance was in an old building, we (my friends and I) didnt want to waste the opportunity to take pics like we always do everywhere, lol.

this dance called Gambyong Pareanom Mangkunegaran, one of my fav one :D

and this one is Srimpi Pandelori, it's the hardest one for me to learn at the moment

and here we are in action girls!! duh..

this scary character is one of the dancers which play a mean character as it looks

So yea, I ended that day with satisfaction. Great performance, great friends, great pictures, whatta a perfect day! It just reminds us to support our cultural heritage for our children and grandchildren so it wont be just the part of history. Hope I can see this performance again next year, or even be part of it? who knows? :D
