waiting for my japanese school bag

When i re-watched 1 litre of tears, i just realized that the Japanese school girls use the almost exactly same school bags. The basic designs of those bags are same. 

Rectangular very simple and classic bag which looks like a suitcase with 2 stripes vertically across the bag and those 2 stripes are the handle as well. And the length of the handle is... almost same too.. 

*Japanese school uniforms including the accessories are really the best in the world, i think* 

So that you can imagine how the bags look like, please see pictures which i got from google below:

Look at those bags..

More bags..

And i've been thinking for 3 weeks of getting one Japanese school bag for myself.

The 1st week, i tried to browse where i can buy a Japanese school bag. I even asked my friends to keep an eye if they saw a bag like that. :P

Then i found a shop which sells Japanese School Bag ! It has various school bags but i want this black one (coz others look too young for me ㅠ.ㅠ) :

Candy Sugar Leather Bag

I wanted the bag coz i think it is versatile - i can use it for work and it'll look like a "professional" bag coz it it large, simple, and can keep documents ... while (my favorite style of course..) i also can use it for casual time and i'll look like a high school girl !!! *grin*

And one more thing i love is people can't judge you. (some people might judge you from the bag you use. But with this very simple neat bag, people can't judge you * i think so * . They can't tell if it's expensive or not. It is so neat and nice, but it is so simple that it doesn't have any monogram or any branded sign). 

Currently i am using a bag which has a copied design of a branded bag. I brought the bag coz it's large, simple, and i like the color. But for some people, brand is so important. It makes me look like "the girl who is wearing a fake bag" while i brought the bag just because it is large, simple, i like the color, and i don't care about the brand. So i feel like i don't want to use it anymore (after a year). And also the bag sometimes is not that useful coz it has not many compartments. Only 1 large space and 1 tiny pocket. Using a bag organizer doesn't help much. If you know what bag that i mean and if you are using it too, you might feel the same about the problems using this bag.

Then.. i thought i am going to save for a real branded simple bag. But when i saw this Japanese school bag, i realized that this Japanese school bag is much more worthy ^^ Using branded bags might give you happiness - a label for you to bring. But.. branded bags are not that nice for daily use. Some of them are so heavy even when you haven't fill it with anything, some of them don't have zipper which make you become a temptation for pickpockets, some of them are so hard to maintain or keep it clean, etc.

This Candy Sugar Japanese school leather bag is quite pricey for a school bag (but much much more cheaper than branded bags for sure) but the bag is so useful and so detailed ! It has a pocket with zipper on the front side (i can put my purse there) which has more pockets inside (i can put my keys and handphone there) and pen holders. Then there are more pockets without zipper on the front side (for small stuff like hair clips or parking ticket) . Inside, there is a large space (for dry tissue,wet tissue, documents, etc.) and another pocket (for sanitary napkin other stuff) and plus, a bottled water space. And there might be more spaces (coz i haven't see the real thing, and from some pictures only, i already can see so many spaces. There might be more ! *hopefully* hihi ) Ah i really love it even though i haven't received it yet.. Oops... yet? :P 

yeah, so after 3 weeks of dreaming, imagining, thinking + dreamt about it 2 times + a whole night yesterday thinking about it (coz it's on sale and today is the last day), i decided to buy it. yeay ! i think it's worth it ^^

later when i want to look like a high school girl, i will customized the bag so it'll look like something cute like this : 

so cute ~~

PS. My review for the bag here.

fell in love with JAL's flight attendant

If you are one of my ex blog's readers, then you must know that i love Korean Air (KE) a lot a lot... I blogged several times about my love admiration to KE's flight attendant, the uniform, and especially ... the bow <3 *wink* ㅋㅋ

Actually i even did apply to be one of them this year ( i forgot which month ). But i failed at the 1st interview session. ㅋㅋㅋ

But i don't really care because i have that feeling that i might have the chance to pass to the next round if my body height is more than 161cm. ㅋㅋ Coz i feel it, i can see through their eyes when i was standing with others lining up to go inside the room, then i become more sure when i got this question .. (same meaning but different words and punctuation of course) : What is your body height? I answered: 159cm. Then the next question is: What is your opinion about body height? Let's say we're going to have you but there's just one thing which is your body height is below the standard. I answered something like: in my opinion, body height is important but i think there's other more important thing which is personality and character. I think it's not a smart answer coz one of them replied, "But you know, in this industry, safety is #1." Then i just nodded.


ah whatever... but i feel happy. Why? coz i feel like actually i am nice enough. ㅋㅋ coz i am more sure that i should stay here. 오빠랑 함께여서 같이 나아갈 수 있어요. * wow.. surprised that my Korean is better now? kkkk The truth is, i asked 오빠 how to write "can go through days accompanying 오빠" first before i typed previous sentences. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ*

Anyway..... back to the topic ! ㅋㅋ

I fell in love with KE's flight attendant when i saw them queueing for passport check at Soekarno Hatta Airport. And... now something like this happened again ! :P

Yesterday evening i was waiting for my auntie at Terminal 2D arrival gate of Soekarno Hatta Airport. There's a plane which did landing first before the plane where my auntie was in. And the plane is Japan Airlines (JAL). So... JAL passengers and flight attendants went out before my auntie.

Pretty Japanese girls went by. They are so white, their eyebrows are so nice, and their smile are so bright.
*actually most of the passengers which i saw yesterday are 아줌마, but they are so pretty so i am imagining younger version of them. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ*

And then.. the flight attendant came out ! <3 <3 <3
White skin, nice and neat eyebrows,.... *i am so into Japanese eyebrows nowadays because of 오빠 !!*
elegant movement, so lady, and bright smile ... ahh ~~ <3

Merry Christmas 2010

wew.. sorry for not posting.. i think i always leave my blog not updated ㅠ.ㅠ
when i want to update it, the internet connection is too slow. actually it's an excuse coz i don't have any idea of what to blog about.  Both are true actually.

Went out with friends on Dec 12nd ^^ It's been so long i didn't go out with them :P
We went to Senayan City and had dinner at XO Suki.

Upper : Eric, Frick, Ranger
Lower : Irwandi, Grace, Mira, Asun, Mulyono, me
The girls ~~ Mira, Grace, and me ^^

Last week on Dec 18th, we met again at the wedding of Eric's sister.

오빠, me, Putri as bridesmaid, Eric, Mira, Asun. This picture is taken by Ranger.
Ranger, me, Putri, Eric, Mira, Asun.
사랑하는 오빠 하고 ^^
I met with friends for exchanging gifts ^^ Dec 23rd @ Artha Gading Mall.
We ate Ramen 38 (Sanpachi). The soup of the ramen is so delicious ^^ I can't remember what did my friends and i ordered coz all the ramen name is in Japanese. ㅋㅋ

Molita with her so spicy ramen - spiciness level 13 !! 갸 ! Molita can't drink the soup coz it's too spicy :p
Hiro with his curry ramen ! This one tastes nice !
Steph with her ramen + tofu ! All of us think that this one is the most delicious one ^^
오빠의 라면. 맛있다 ^^
제 라면 ^^ The soup tastes same like oppa's
Unfortunately, Nora & Venny was stuck because of traffic jam. So they can't join us for ramen coz they came late - around 8.30 PM. So while waiting for them, we went around to Daiso (a store which sell so many Japanese stuff, all items @IDR 22,000 ^^).

Btw, since i re-watched "1 Litre Of Tears", i love Japan/Japanese a lot more. Before it's like so - so. But nowadays, there are so many Japan/Japanese related stuff which attracts me a lottt... Okay, back to the story.

There are so many cute items in Daiso and i feel like want to buy a lot of stuff >.< I ended up buying a flirty dress for 단비. So coincidence, today is 단비의 생일 !

사랑하는 단비. 생일 축하해요 !

단비 wearing the flirty dress. ㅋㅋ Picture taken by 오빠의 엄마 and sent to me the next day.
So after Nora & Venny came, we went to Pizza Hut accompanying them having dinner. And we did exchanging gifts there ^^ Pictures are taken by Molita's camera so currently i haven't have the pictures yet.

I got chocolate from Nora ^^
Nora got "i love working" cup from Molita. This is so funny coz currently Nora is not love working :P
Molita got a cute spoon - christmas decoration - from Steph.
Steph got my useless cupcakes shape container. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
While 오빠 got earphone from Hiro.
Hiro got cheese snack from Venny.
and Venny got a really cute duck tootbrushes holders from 오빠 ^^

and... yesterday was Dec 25 th !

merry christmas !

I went to a Christian church for the very first time. 오빠 하고 같이 갔어요.

It is IES ( International English Service ). Most people who joined the IES family are expatriates. I think i met someone like Harry Potter, and then i saw someone like Will Smith, and more... ㅋㅋ and the service is in English. Coz my conversation skill in english is still not that good, i hardly understand them ㅠ.ㅠ But i think it's good coz it's a practice, right ? ^^

And i was so surprised coz it's so different from Catholic church !

First, i saw a girl with short pants. I was like so surprised coz if i wear short pants to Catholic church, i think people will be staring at me coz some people might think that i don't respect God by wearing so not formal and show flesh outfit. But then i read at the paper they gave, there's a writing which means something like this ( i can't remember the exact sentences): Some people dress up, some people dress down. Which matter is what makes you feel comfortable. I think it's nice to think more open like this ^^

Then, the music is live with drum, guitar, etc. And the lightning is awesome. I feel like i'm watching a concert. And because of that, the music strikes the heart. A great way to awake the sleepy spirit. Nice..

And.. The service.. it feels like i am watching a TV show. I don't feel bored! Well, not that bored like usual.

But what i like the most is the feeling - surrounded by so many different people. Different nations, different races, different skin color, different style, etc. And they express themselves with their own way ! No one judges them ! That is my favorite part. The Harry Potter guy sit well, Will Smith guy dance while singing, some people cried because of joy (maybe), etc.

Okay.. then after the service, 식당에 갔어요 ^^ We went to Nikko Hotel and had lunch at Origami Restaurant - a Japanese food buffet ^^ Delicious ! I forgot to take pictures ㅠ.ㅠ

밤에, 오빠의 친구 만났어요. 도원 한국 식당에 갔어요.

me, 오빠, 대현 오빠, 엘리고 (일번 사람), 말리고 (일번 사람), 재석 오빠, Rudi, 한설 오빠.
그리고 다른 친구 왔어요. 샘유 오빠. 우리는 더미노 글럽 (스나얀 시티에 있어요) 갔어요. 오빠 하고 친구 하고 정말 귀여워요. Like high school guys. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ...

그럼.. 집에 왔어요 ^^

Last, pics of some 김. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

안녕 ^^

hair pins

Sunday - Dec 5th, there's a friend's wedding party ^^
This is the first wedding party which i will go together with oppa. kk. The last wedding party i went to with oppa is not counted because at that day i was a bridesmaid ^^

I don't know what should i do with my hair because lately these days my hair is not pretty. I did make it curly, but i don't really know how to take care of it so sometimes it doesn't look good (my grandma said it's messy).

So, i chose to tied everything up. And because my fringe is not long enough, it's hard for me to tied it up. I used hair spray and gel a lot but still.. there are some short fringe can't be tied up. Then i asked my grandma if she has any oil for hair.

Then my grandma took this box of hair pins out.
The box looks so old.. the box color is kinda yellowish already. and look at the font.. so old style..

Then my grandma took some of the hairpins out and pinned my hair. While doing that, she said (translated), 

"these hairpins are from the old times when you were still doing ballet. When you had shows, the teacher who tied your hair at that time pinned your hair using these hairpin. So when you came home and unpinned them, i kept them."

I almost cried. I tried not to cry because i had my make up on. If only i am brave enough to hug her. While writing this, i am crying as well...

Well, i am an expressive person. But sadly, most of my family members are not expressive. They think that expressive is a childish way to show your feelings. So usually they act cool. That's why, in my family, we can't really show love. We always show love in weird way - grumbling, etc. So, though i am an expressive person, i am not expressive at showing love to my family.

That's not good.. Coz the moment i am not in a good mood, my expression makes them broken heart. While when i am in a good mood, i can't really show love. Ironic...

Luckily the younger generation in my family now try to show love. They do hug, they do kiss.

Ah.. it's becoming more sad. To stop it, i'd say that maybe at my wedding day later i might cry too. LOL. I think i have to retouch my make up a lot of time at that day :p
