Re:CON 2015, re:ON comics convention, 25th April 2015.

[Another late post... I was quite busy... :D)

re:on Convention is an event held by re:on magazine to celebrate the 13th volume release. Since it’s not far from home, so I took the time to go to the event. At first I was going alone…but luckily Ni-chan managed to join in the afternoon. I wanted to see what kind of convention it was. Been hearing about it, but haven’t got the chance to take a look.

It’s quite fun! They had the magazine artists’ hall and merchandise booth, cosplay competition, live drawing by the artists, comic tutorial, make up and cosplay costume workshop, and also a special meet and greet with a cosplayer from the Philippines, Liui Aquino.

Love Song

The song “Love Song” by LUNA SEA, always gives me mixed feeling.
Once, someone refereed the lyric to describe her feeling when being with me. I feel honored, and happy. But, something happen and the song left pain in my heart…

Now, the song gives me more pain since I feel the song exactly as a reality.

Pasar Komik Bandung 4

[ This is a late post :D]

On 9 May 2015, office participated again at the Pasar Komik Bandung 4. But, this time I didn't go all out for the event :D
Our colleagues at Bandung has provide people to stand guard at the booth. So I can freely touring the other booth, and didn't have to stayed for a night in the city.

It's always fun and exciting to went to comic event. I could found many interesting, precious, and collectible items that I won't easily found around. It's also exciting to meet many talented artists, some that I already knew (artist for office) and some new artist that I've met for the first time. 

The event was really like a reunion or a big family gathering. Everyone were blended into one, talking about new works they were working, about issues in art, joint works, or just simple chit chat. The surroundings really feel warm. It made me kinda regret for not participating fully in the event... 

For this year event, I was happy to get MANY comics. I will list it below~

Thank you! (^^)

While I was at Bandung, I get a notification telling me that someone has left a comment on my wattpad's story: vistlip - Bond of Brothers.

I didn't realize the last time I update the story was 2 years ago...
The stories were actually finished, I just haven't upload it yet since I'd like to change some parts.
To be honest, I'm kinda lose confidence to upload it, because people would realize who's my main interest in the story hahaha
But I guess, I will be quickly to change the parts and upload the rest of the stories in close time.
The comment really boost my spirit. :)

Knowing that someone read my feels AWESOME!
Thank you so much!

The Journey of Ignorance and Stupidity

This post will be in Bahasa Indonesia, because it will be easier to tell and capture my stupidity :D

Gue bikin janji ketemuan sama calon penulis di Mal Kelapa Gading. Gue deg-degan karena bener-bener buta area sana…Setelah nanya ke teman – Lena - yang gue panggil “penguasa” daerah Kelapa Gading, dikasih saran tuk naik bis ATPB Ciawi-Tanjung Priok, turun di halte busway Sunter Kelapa Gading, terus nyambung naek mikrolet 37 (Senen-Pulogadung), gue bakal turun persis di depan malnya.

Janjiannya sih jam 1 siang, tapi karena ‘gak tahu kondisi lalu lintas Jakarta Utara, berangkatlah gue lebih awal, jam 8 pagi dari rumah di Bogor. Sampai di Ciawi jam 8.30, langsung naik APTB Ciawi-Tanjung Priok yang lagi ngetem. 

Untungnya gue berangkat awal, APTBnya ngetem sampai 1 jam! Akhirnya gw berangkat jam 9.30 pagi, bayar ongkos 16 rebu. Nyampe di halte Sunter Kelapa Gading kira-kira jam 11 kurang, terus naik mikrolet 37 (nyebrang jembatan busway). Lena emang bilang mikroletnya lewat persis di depan mal,  tapi gue kurang percaya kalau supirnya inget tuk turunin gue disitu. Akhirnya waktu gue liat di sebelah kanan tulisan besar “Mal Kelapa Gading”, gue buru-buru minta turun terus nyebrang. Tapi ternyata mikroletnya muter di puteran gak jauh di depan n lewat di depan mal. Gue cuma bisa pura-pura cuek sambil jalan masuk mal.

Di mal, gue ke Gramedia dulu, beli buku referensi tuk kantor n beberapa komik, sama sumpit katana. Sempet-sempetnya gue liat barang begituan…

Childhood dream vs reality

When I was a kid - an innocent and normal one - I used to play and pretending to be a worker in an office. I would wear my mom's outfit and shoes.
I pretend to be a busy worker with lots of works to do. I don't have time for myself, either for the family. I would be coming home late, tired, and had to get up in the next morning for work. Busy with papers, meetings, presentation, meeting with client, calling people, etc. That time, it was a fun thing to do.

Years after that, I'm doing what I was doing as a kid. Working and being busy.
I've reached home at night, when my family were ready to go to sleep, and woke up early in the next morning. Well, that's actually because my house is quite far from office, so I have to go early, and I really don't want to rent a room near office. So I have to live with the way I did every day to go to work.  

I'm not always busy at office, but there's always things to do beside doing what I have to do, which is editing. I'm busy and hectic especially during deadlines and event's preparation. As if I couldn't stop moving and thinking. I'm tired, but I have to keep moving, organizing things. My head feels full, but I have to keep thinking about the summaries.

I'm not complaining though. I love what I'm doing. Sometimes I just want to say "tired" but still wanting to do it. And I have a strange way to handle the tired, that is by writing, like this. I kept my head "full" all the time hahaha

Monday Syndrome

Since I always had Monday Syndrome aka headache on every Monday, I intended to go easy on the start of the week. I left the house quite late and walk slowly to get to the office. I also intended not to do much works, but it turned out pile of it has await me...and I succeed getting headache...

I've spend three days of weekend with...nothing. I've guess it would be like that...
I actually forget I have to prepare some promotions to do this week :D
But I manage to done half of my report for the weekly meeting. Many more to do within the week especially with two days event in Bandung.

Anyway, I finished watching "The Walking Dead" until season 5. My brother wondered how I could watch all of the series while I HATE zombies. I said to him it's for Rick and Carl hahaha
The zombies aren't too much showing in the later season, I was relieved. It had more conflict between humans than against the "living dead". It's fun to see Carl growing from a small boy to a cute teenager hahaha he's so small when Rick holds him in season 1, then in season 5, Carl was almost as tall as his father hahaha the kid grown up within the series.

I quote Rick's words from the series, that they are the "walking dead" not the zombies, because they don't know where to go and had to keep on walking to find safe place for the whole group. Good point.

Actually it isn't too good for me to watch the series, since I've become more aware with the surroundings especially at night. I worried zombies would attack me while I was sleeping lol and I kept thinking about the character from the series, and almost dream being in the same situation. If I was in the situation, I'm sure I will be one of the zombies hahaha

My enjoyment for the weekend was the arriving of my final package. Sugizo's "Truth?" CD and his special Guitar Magazine.

Well, I thought it was final until Sugizo tweet about releasing the second one of Spiritual Classic Selections. The CD will be released on his birthday, 8 July 2015.
I'm speechless... I thought I won't be buying anything close by, yet he tweet that...

I'm touching Sugizo's hand... *shivering* lol
