As promised, here’s my quotes collection from Tokyo Tarareba Musume. They’re not really quotable per se — these thoughts can lean toward self-pity at times — neither do i find them as hitting home as those from Age of Youth, but i suppose they can be relevant and/or relatable to those around the girls’ age group.

Aaaahhh, ternyata web series ini belum tamat!! Ternyata seri ini beneran berjumlah 9 episode, bukan 8 seperti perkiraanku sebelumnya. Dan ternyata kita hanya perlu menunggu satu minggu untuk bisa menonton kelanjutan kisah Jonathan dan Sore. Untuk ini, aku harus berterima kasih kepada kolom rekomendasi YouTube. Kalau engga, entah kapan aku baru akan ngeh soalnya adanya episode spesial ini, berhubung tulisan “final” di akhir judul episode 8 minggu lalu berhasil menipuku mentah-mentah. Uh! Continue reading “SORE the series: episode spesial (!!)”
How many times have you repeated I’ll be there performance from Wednesday’s FNS? I myself have lost count. Although i’m the type who loops songs i like for hours or days on end until i get sick of ’em, in case of Arashi’s new music release, i do so to familiarize myself with the tune, and to see if i’ll end up liking it. Oftentimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
As for the upcoming single, it took only an hour or two to grow on me. Continue reading “The five yous I’ll Be There for”
Sepertinya web series sedang “in” ya belakangan ini. Sejak kemunculan mini drama AADC akhir 2014 lalu, sudah ada tiga judul dengan format serupa yg kutonton melalui YouTube: Nic & Mar, Ben & Jody, dan Sore. Dan sejauh ini, aku cukup puas dengan hasilnya. Selain durasi dan jumlah episode yg pendek, serta akses yg mudah, dari segi cerita, senimatografi, dan akting, kualitasnya jauh lebih oke daripada sinetron-sinetron yg tayang di TV.

Eh, eh, eh?
Wa waa waaaaa~
When i begin to lose hope in this drama’s characters, some of them finally get it together.
When i’ve resigned myself to Tarareba being a romcom that shall never move me, these two episodes happened. Continue reading “Tokyo Tarareba Musume: on episode 7~8”
Akhirnya kesampaian juga~
Salah satu makanan, atau lebih tepatnya kue, yg hype-nya gila-gilaan akhir-akhir ini tentunya dipegang PABLO baked cheese tart. Sejak gerai pertama di Gandaria City buka pertengahan November tahun lalu (setahun lebih penantian sejak papan namanya terpasang di sana), konon sampai sekarang antriannya masih mengular. Continue reading “PABLO Cheese Tart: rasanya seenak panjangnya antrian?”
“I love him… but he’s not only mine.
We love each other… but we can’t get married.
We can be together… but we don’t match.
When did we start to live this awkward way of life?”
Ah, these tarareba girls and the dilemmatic love situations they’re in…

Gil-dong: “My father is the servant Ahmogae.”
King Yeonsan: “That cannot be. Such a lowly man could not have a son like you.”
Gil-dong: “Then why did you become such a lowly man when you were born from such a mighty king?”
What do sequels, remakes, and recycled songs have in common? They will always be compared with the original, which 99% of the time is better. Naturally, there are exceptions, but when i am already loving the original, i’d usually eschew the later versions. Which isn’t so easy in the last case. I mean, with music, you can hear it playing anytime anywhere without making an active effort to look for it.
Anyway, this time i’ll talk about one of that 1% — an oldie but goldie song titled True Colors.

Story of single women (day)dreaming to find the right men by certain time may not be everyone’s cup of tea, even those a sucker for romance. I can understand why some are turned off by the titular what-if girls’ unrealistic ideals and expectations although i did find their plights relatable, personalities likable, dynamics lifelike, and fantasies amusing. It’s probably because i’m close to these girls’ age and quite aware of the ‘pressure’ society put on single woman in her 30s (and beyond), although they aim to get married by 2020 of own accord.
