I finally have Hyde’s best album which released by the local music company, Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia! Thank you so much for releasing the album here! I hope the other will follow soon :)

At first I didn’t know the album has been officially released here. I read it at L’Arc~en~Ciel fans community blog. I thought it was a joke since there’s no official news about the release and also I haven’t seen it at local music store. So, I called my most visited and favorite music store, DUTA SUARA at Ekalokasari Plaza, Bogor. I asked the employee about the album but they said they don’t have it. Then, they offer me to make an order. They will call me when the album is available. So I make an order and then wait. It took maybe almost a month before the call finally came to informed that the CD is available and when do I want to take it. I instantly said, “NOW!” After work I quickly went to the store, hurried with the time for the store to be close, and grab the CD. It’s mine!!! Finally Hyde (best album) is mine XDD

And about the album, the songs are compilation from 3 of Hyde’s previously albums, Roentgen, 666, and Faith. There also singles that not included at those mention albums. There’s only one new song on this best album that is Glamorous Sky which Hyde perform it in English. The song it self is the soundtrack of NANA the Movie which Japanese version was sung by Mika Nakashima. I like Hyde’s version better :)

In general, this is only a compilation of Hyde’s songs. For the truth I don’t like the song’s order at the album. They are weird. One song taste hard rock then the next one was slow, I feel that they only take songs and put it together at the album just like that without rearrange the order. It doesn’t feel nice to hear the songs with the kind of order. And, sadly my most favorite Hyde’s songs doesn’t included at the album, Evergreen and Shallow Sleep. There’s Evergreen though but the distortion one, it’s good but I like the original one. But, I do feel satisfied since I quite like the songs that included on this album, such as, The Other Side; Shining Over You; Season’s Call; Hello; Hideaway; Prayer; The Cape of Storms; and my favorite one Glamorous Sky.

Over all, this is an album consist of Hyde’s best song and a must have album (for me XD). I’m so happy I could have it now! Thank you for Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia for releasing the album here (I hope many would also come soon XD); thank you for L'Arc~en~Ciel Indonesians Fans Page for sharing the information; thank you for DUTA SUARA Ekalokasari Plaza music store for looking out the CD for me; thank you God for having me the money to bought it (I almost broke that time XD); and last thank you for Hyde who has made good songs for me to enjoy. I love your voice so much!

Never Alone

My sweet friend on MySpace has send me a very beautiful video of Kimi. A fan made it and it's so wonderful!! I can't help it! I like it so much! If I haven't been at the office, I might cried watching it, seriously :) The song really suited to the feeling I had now for Kimi. The moving pictures are also perfect. Everything is perfect! I hope Kimi can see the video, so he would know how much people loved him and always support him. Once I thought I was alone with this feeling, but as I keep looking I found many people do share the same thing with me, love and admiration for Kimi. The fans are so great! I've been motivated and moved by them!

And this is the lyric from the song "Never Alone" by Lady Antebellum feat. Jim Brickman. The words are really true...Kimi, trust me, you will never be alone. Just like I've always said, I will always beside you whatever happen, either in good or bad times. Kimi, this one is specially for you :)

Never Alone

May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it's time to go home
May you always have plenty
The glass never empty
Know in your belly
You're never alone

May your tears come from laughing
You find friends worth having
With every year passing
They mean more than gold
May you win and stay humble
Smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble
You're never alone

Never alone
Never alone
I'll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn't goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you're never alone

Well, I have to be honest
As much as I wanted
I'm not gonna promise that cold winds won't blow
So when hard times have found you
And your fear surrounds you
Wrap my love around you
You're never alone

Never alone
Never alone
I'll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn't goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you're never alone

May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it's time to go home
And when hard times have found you
And your fear surrounds you
Wrap my love around you
You're never alone

Never alone
Never alone
I'll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn't goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you're never alone

My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you're never alone

I pledge: "either in good or bad times, I'm with you, Kimi" :)

6th place on fire!

I absolutely think the Brazilian GP was the most thrilling series of this season. This is the first time I felt scared again when watching Kimi's race. Kimi had an incident at pit lane. He's on fire and it was literally mean like that! He was on fire seriously! He got spray by the fuel from Kovalainen's car and the fire came up and burn him!! I was shocked! Though it's just happen for a short time but the feeling last even until now....

What happen really?

Kimi started the race from P5, which is awesome since the qualifying happen under hard rain. As note, other famous drivers started the race from very back of the grid. As the race started, Kimi fly to the front and manage to take 3rd place! (I really love this man!). Then, when he was attempting to overtake Webber on 2nd place, Kimi got hit and lose his front wing. He had to enter the pit quite early for that. Then great accident happen between Sutil and Trulli. It makes Safety Car being deployed. This is a good situation for Kimi, he took the pit stop before Safety Car came out, so he can join back the race with lots of fuel and doesn't get any Safety Car penalty. Then the incident happen...

Kovalainen was also in the pit at the same time with Kimi. When Kimi leaves the pit, Kovalainen does the same but still with the fuel hose attached. The fuel get sprayed everywhere including at Kimi who was right behind him. The flame suddenly came and burn the car!! Kimi look surprised, he let go the steering wheel for a moment before hold it back and drive as if nothing happen! I was shocked and almost cried. How did that could happen?! The reply was on and I can't barely watch it over again, it's too scary to watched! Kimi was being burn alive! Thank God the flame went off quickly by it self and Kimi continued driving as if nothing really happen....

I was completely worried for the whole race. I was waiting for the team confirmation that he was alright. I want to hear his voice saying he was alright. I want to hear the commentator said he was alright. Please someone told me that he was alright! No one said it and I watched the race with high tense. Even so, amazingly Kimi slowly move up his positions. One by one with no one realize it. In the end of the race, he finished in 6th place!! After the trouble at start, the pit incident, and with a very uncompetitive car, he still can take 6th place! Great drive by a great man! Even one of the commentator said he has done a great drive :)

Then after the race, I found out the fact that some fuel was actually get inside Kimi's eyes and even after the race, he still feel his eyes were burning. What!! Go see the doctor then!! What were you doing by talking as if it doesn't feel hurt? Why you keep driving with the pain? Oh dear...why you had to be that great?!! >_< It added my admiration for him again. With the pain, Kimi still drove beautifully with no mistakes and take 6th place. Other driver would just stopped right away! Once someone said about the calmness Schumy had when the same thing happen, then what about Kimi? He's cooler than Schumy!! It was really a scary thing to watched, I was feeling scared even until now when I remember the view. I'm glad Kimi was alright. That's what most important than any points.

Again, Kimi has make me amazed and proud. I'm so proud of him! I should have follow his dignity and hard work. He never surrenders what ever happen. No matter he's in pain, he keep moving forward. What a strong man, what a great man, the greatest one! I will follow you forever!!

Happy Birthday dearest one!

On Saturday, October 17th, 2009 was my happy day. It's my dearest Kimi's birthday!! He's 30 years old now, so old! XP I was so happy so I pledge that I will always smile for the whole day. No matter what happen I won't mourning! I don't want to mourn on my dearest one special day. I want to always smiling and I did! Yatta!!

I've begun the morning by greet his poster on my wall. "Happy birthday, dear kimi,". I smile. Then I wrote a birthday congratulation on book of the season. I came down stair and greet everyone, "happy birthday!". At noon, my brother and I went to bought the birthday cake. I also look for the candles. After we finally reach home, I quickly prepare the cake and take pictures to be post here and some social account I have. I never been so happy like I was that day. I was so motivated and excited! I even sleep with still having the smile on my face XD

The day was the most happiest Kimi's birthday I've ever had! Don't know why, maybe it's because he's 30 years old now? He has grown up! I don't realize it XD If I look back at his old pictures, I could see the changing. Kimi has really change from a young talented boy to a mature and great man! I really didn't realize how he has change. It felt so natural for me :) I'm glad I can celebrate Kimi's birthday this year. It's his biggest birthday! The big 30, they said :)

For his birthday..I pray that he would always be bless by the Mighty One. I pray he will have all the success, joy, love, and happiness. Always be healthy and wealthy in many ways. I pray he will always have the smile on his face. I'm wishing him the very best more than ever now. He deserves it!

Happy birthday Kimi! May you live a long and happy life with people that you care and love. I can't give you anything on your special day, but just a simple prayer and hope, also love that will always forever be yours :) Happy birthday dearest Kimi. I'm so grateful you are here in this world. I'm so grateful to have you in my world. Thank you so much! Love you forever and ever!

Eigo ga doushite?

Some friends ask me the reason why I wrote my post in English. Actually there’s no special reason. I’m not intent writing in English so foreigner could read it. I wrote in English because I want to keep practice it. If I don’t practice it frequently, soon it would meet the same fate with my Japanese, stagnant XD I would love to write in Japanese but I still haven’t master it, even now I’m slowly forgetting what I’ve learn…sigh…

For the truth, I love writing in English. My main reason is because non-speaking English around me would be lazy to read it XD and beside of keep practicing it, I quite agree with what Hyde has said. I remember his words when people asked him why he wrote songs in English. That time he said because English has many words to express feeling than in Japanese. I feel the same too. I like English because some words don’t feel cheesy or tawdry to say. That’s why almost all of my writings are in English, don’t care people could understand it or not. Well, I always try to write in the right pattern. So until now, I’m still writing and keep learning.

I think I will keep writing in English for some moment. I would write in Indonesian if I found it difficult to explain what I'm trying to say XD It doesn’t have anything to do with patriotism. I just want to write what I like in any language that I like XD That’s all...It’s just that plain and simple :)

In Memoriam of Stephen Gately

I was quite surprised to read the news about the death of Stephen Gately, one of the members from BOYZONE. I must admit that I was one of their fans during my Junior High period (XD) and Stephen was my favorite member. What can I say? He’s cute and have a unique voice (I’ve realize now that I always like someone with strange and unique voice). Stephen passed away for still unknown reason at his house in Spain. He was 33 years old, my prayers and deep condolences for him.

My sister also rings me about Stephen death.
She wrote, “Hey, your ex favorite guy has passed away, Stephen Gately,”
I replied, “I know, lost after lost,”
(I write that for another lost that I might have soon *sigh*)

Then she starts talking about Stephen’s sexual interest, about his likeness for man. That Stephen is a gay.

I stare at her and said, “So?”
“I don’t care if he’s a gay. It’s his choice,”

I can see that my sister quite surprised with my words.
Then I quickly realize something.

“It’s not because of he’s gay that I’m not his fans anymore.
It’s because I was done with the Junior High euphoria,”
“And also because now I have Kimi :),”

My sister really surprised with my words. She only said, “Oh my…,”

Well, that’s the truth. I’m not Stephen’s fans no longer isn’t because for the reason that he’s a gay. But, because I’ve found other interest and that is in Japanese music. I don’t mind at all with the fact that Stephen likes man. I know religion prohibited it; even so it’s each person choice and responsibility. I can’t judge him as a bad person or stray one. I can’t say that because I’m also stray in some area XD

Then I also could understand Stephen feeling…since for me, the feeling of love and like doesn’t have to be for opposite gender. Man can like man and so does with the girls. But, personally I choose to be straight :) I don’t mind at all with those who have the feeling for the same gender, again it’s each person choice.

Sate, sayounara Stephen. You will be missed. Thank you for your works when you’re alive. You will always be cherishing. Thank you and goodbye. May God blessing be with you :)

p.s. Face it sis, this is your little sister real identity XD

Wherever You Will Go ~KiRai's lyric~

So lately, I've been wondering
Who will be there to take your place
When you’re gone, I'll need love
To light the shadows on my face
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
And between the sand and stone
Could I make it on my own

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
The way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you
Through the darkest of your days
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
Well I hope there's someone out there
Who can bring you back to me

Runaway with my heart
Runaway with my hope
Runaway with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In my heart and my mind
You’ll stay with me for all of time

If I could turn back time
I'll go wherever you will go
If I could make you mine
I'll go wherever you will go

KiRai's Note:
The original lyric is from "Wherever You Will Go" by "The Calling" band. I've forget how much I love this song. The first song I've dedicated for Kimi. The words that represented my feeling for him. Kimi, if I could then I would, I'll go wherever you will go. But, no...I will always go wherever you'll go :)

Proud 4th place ~after Suzuka GP~

Feuh..finally I have the time to post my review about Kimi's result at Suzuka GP. I know it's out of date but I want to write it anyway XD

Kimi started the race from P5. Actually, he would start from P8, but several drivers got a yellow flag penalty so Kimi's starting grid has move up. Lucky! ^_^
When the race started, Kimi quickly move to the side of the start line, but the front drivers gathered in one place and block his way to get through. After turn 1, Kimi stayed in 5th place.

The race mostly become round and round again. Even so, Kimi could hold back Barichello, despite his car doesn't have any new development. Kimi has perform quite well during the race and he even make one of the fastest lap of the day! Remember, his car isn't as fast as the others...And also with that kind of speed, Kimi could jumped out Heidfeld at 2nd pit stop. He did! Kimi took 2nd pit stop before Heidfeld and succeed stay in front of Heidfeld after he took his 2nd pit. Awesome strategy! Kimi is in 4th now.

A quite mess accident happen that make Safety Car to come out. Kimi got a chance to overtake Hamilton when the race started again. They were close but not close enough. Only few laps left and I prefer to see Kimi finish in 4th than at the wall. A good choice from Kimi :)

Kimi finished in 4th and I'm so happy with this result. It's better than in Singapore. The weather also nice, even though it's raining during free practice. I'm so happy every thing goes smoothly for Kimi after hard times recently. With all the annoying things around him, he still determinate to give his best for the team. He still drive his best for the team, although he won't be there next year. The news doesn't bother him and surely doesn't make him less motivated. What a man! :) That's why I'm so proud of him. Even though no one won't notice his hard work, but I do. I know Kimi always work hard and always give his best, because he is simply the best. And what ever the decision may come..I will still be the same for him. I've pledge along time ago that, "for better or worse, I'm with you, Kimi," :) This is the pledge for a lifetime :)

Thank you for your hard work Kimi. Love you always.
