Narutroll-ed


Ok this is funny! I had my "Naruto + Troll = Narutroll-ed" moment. Who could have thought that the web that I went to would actually have sense of humor and April Fool spirit. I like it! Hahaha...Can't stop laughing though I happen to saw 'em on 21st of April instead of 1st. LOL!


Yeah...basically Naruto Shippuuden The Movie 5 is not out yet. To think that I was so excited for nothing. Who knows that it's actually part of the web's troll plan for April Fool. Fascinating I would say. They really have made my day (Shud say midnight since I'm laughing at it in the midnight hour)

UPDATE (17 May)
It's out for real this time! Somehow the soundtrack inside the movie reminds me of Shutter Island. :D

From 辛 to 幸


Recently I came across a Japanese movie called "Hitsudan Hostess" (筆談ホステス). I thought that it would be nice to watch since it was based on real life stories of a 25-year-old hostess by the name Saito Rie. So in fact I did ended up watching it yesterday and hey...it made me cried!


If there's one thing which I would love share about this movie, that would've been my fave scene with my fave quote from this movie. The writing which Rie (the main character) wrote to her customer is awesome! I find it intriguing on how Kanji (and Chinese characters) can change the whole meaning by changing a single stroke to the word itself. Just like the title of the post, Rie changed the word to . Basically the first word refers to something like hardship or sadness while the second word means something like fortune or happiness. How cool is that? Somehow this scene made me feel that Saito Rie is really cool and at the same time brilliant to come up with words like that.

辛いのは 幸せになる 道中です
(Tsurai no wa shiawase ni naru dochudesu)
"Difficult times happen on the way to happiness"

Excuse my writing up there...Just wanna illustrate on how she wrote it on the paper. Though seriously her writing in the drama is much more awesome than mine! Haha...so yeah...watch this movie! Wouldn't say that this is something super extremely addictive or mind blowing kind of movie but more to a movie which is meaningful, touching and worth the watch (Although I still find the movie to be rather too short).

Btw, here's the link to the movie in case you're interested to watch it. Click HERE! Enjoy your movie!

Like A Thief In The Night


Experienced tremor at 2 something in the morning. It's kinda unusual for me as usually earthquake mostly occurred when I'm awake (Fyi, today would be my third time experiencing earthquake in my life). Though I must say that this is my first time ever to be experiencing them super early in the morning (Plus the fact that I was attached to the bed halfway sleeping when it happened).

All I remembered was the feeling of my bed swaying on its own... Gently. In which I decided to rub off the idea of an earthquake; thinking that I was just hallucinating since I was already midway to the dreamland.

However, soon enough bro came to my room asking if I feel the tremor too. That's when I quickly got up from my bed, feeling so much awake as I can be and had no idea on what to do. So Bro and I both surveyed outside our door. Much to our surprise there's only a couple of neighbours (3 aunties) talking to each other about the tremor (Guess most people were asleep). The surrounding was all silent and calm without any signs of panicking people running around trying to get out from the apartment. Seeing that there's no follow up tremor, we decided to continue the day. Which for me means to continue my sleep.

Did tried Google-ing bout the earthquake before I went to sleep. But I couldn't find any at that time. I only managed to find it now.

It was an earthquake measuring 6 on the Scale Ritcher which rocked Pandeglang, Banten. It happened for about 5 seconds at around 2.25 A.M.

Below is the picture to illustrate how far Banten is from my place:

Banten (B) and my place (A)

Wouldn't know when it gonna occur again. But if it does, am hoping that it'll visit during broad daylight instead of midnight where everyone is sleeping. *fingers crossed*
