How to apply for 2015 MBC Entertainment, Drama, and Music Awards Ticket

mbc year-end festivals -

MBC has several of my favorite dramas this year: Kill Me Heal Me, Warm and Cozy, and She Was Pretty! I went to Hongdae to watch open shooting of that epic scene where Ahn Yona and Oh Rion met. And my trip to Jeju was basically visiting places that appear on Warm on Cozy. That’s how much I love these dramas.

It’ll be great if I can see my favorite actors & actresses on MBC Drama Awards. And after a little search, I found that MBC opens application for its Entertainment and Drama Awards! For Music Awards (Gayo Daejejeon), the application will open after the final lineup is confirmed. (Music Awards application is now open!) And because I’m a nice person, I’ll tell you how. Haha. Okay, so here’s how to apply:

You can also vote for the Entertainment Awards and Drama Awards.

Good Luck!

100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo

When I heard that there’s a Doraemon Expo in Seoul, I told myself not to miss it. So several days ago, I made a short visit to this 100 Doraemon Secret Gagets Expo. As the title suggests, there are 100 Doraemons here, each of them holding different secret gadgets. There are my favorite take-copter (baling-baling bambu), big light (senter pembesar), copying toast (roti penghafal), etc.

There’s anywhere door (pintu kemana saja) that makes me hope that it’s a real thing because that day was eid al-adha and it’d be nice if I can go home for awhile to celebrate the day. LOL.

Pasar Seni ITB 2014

Pasar Seni ITB datang lagi! Yak setelah 4 tahun berlalu, Pasar Seni ITB akan kembali diselenggarakan pada tanggal 23 November ini.

Acara besutan mahasiswa seni rupa ITB ini merupakan acara turun temurun yang diadakan sejak tahun 1972. Acara ini adalah acara langka yang diadakan 4 tahun sekali dan 1 hari saja! Buat mahasiswa atau alumni ITB, Pasar Seni punya kenangan tersendiri. Soalnya mahasiswa ITB yang lulus sebelum jatah habis cuma bisa bertemu 1 kali Pasar Seni ITB semasa kuliah. Jadi, banyak alumni yang memanfaatkan Pasar Seni sebagai ajang reuni. Tapi tenang, acara ini dibuka untuk umum. Semuanya boleh datang, dan yang paling penting acaranya gratis! //teteup

Dalam acara yang disebut-sebut sebagai perhelatan seni terbesar se-Asia Tenggara ini, kampus ITB dan sepanjang Jalan Ganesha akan dihiasi dengan berbagai instalasi seni. Selain itu, akan ada lebih dari 373 stand produk, makanan, delegasi dan seniman disana.


Dikutip dari Pasar Seni ITB 2014, wahana Pasar Seni ITB tahun ini antara lain:

Kotak Kontak

Maksud hati mengusir sepi, malah diobok-obok begini. Untung bertemu kau di sini, anugerah Tuhan yang patut disyukuri. Wahana di mana pengunjung akan masuk ke kotak sendirian lalu begitu keluar sudah punya teman baru. Mengapa bisa begitu? Periksa sendiri dengan datang langsung.

Fast Art

Lebih dashyat dari mie instan, lebih sehat dari kripik setan. Karya seni instan! Wahana ini bagaikan kedai, kedai bukan sekedar kedai. Pengunjung dapat memesan seni, cepat saji, jaminan mutu.

Tak Kenal Maka Tak Sayang

Kenal hari ini, sayang di masa depan. Terimakasih Pasar Seni, tak perlu lagi ke Klinik Tong Fang.Wahana bertajuk menggelitik ini memberi pengunjung ‘jodoh’ semudah mesin ticketing mencetak karcis. Menarik, bukan?


Pelukismu agung, siapa gerangan? Bukan Si Agung, ini ciptaan Tuhan.Mungkin kamu tidak sadar kamu sebenarnya berpijak di mana. Di wahana ini, pengunjung akan dibuat takjub akan keagungan semesta.

Kompleks Karya Raya
Segerombol seniman sekonyong-konyong memboyong pemikiran mereka. Tumpah ruah di pinggir jalan bagai lautan jemaat sholat Jumat.Jalan raya yang biasanya hanya jadi tempat parkir kuda kini disulap menjadi tempat memamerkan seni bagi para seniman. Diimpor dari penjuru tanah air!

Aih seru banget kayaknya.

Buat sedikit gambaran, berikut ini adalah foto-foto dari Pasar Seni ITB yang diadakan tahun 2010 lalu. Wah, 4 tahun nggak berasa ya ternyata. Tau-tau tambah tua aja. Saya inget banget tanggal waktu itu 10/10/10 dan acaranya cuma diadakan selama 10 jam.

Seru kan, jadi yuk ah yang ada di sekitaran Bandung mampir ke Pasar Seni ITB 2014 hari Minggu ini. Atau yang dari Jakarta mau ke Bandung juga boleh loh. Saya titip salam aja buat Rangga. Semoga bisa ketemu di Pasar Seni berikutnya :”D

mas rangga. aku tunggu ada yang ngongkosin ke indonesia dulu mas, sama kayak kamu

2014 Incheon K-Pop Concert

On my first week at school, there was orientation for foreign student. One of the speakers is from Incheon International Relation for Foreigner (IIRF). This organization provides tailored programs for international students in Incheon like homestay, making traditional food, learning k-pop dance, and watching k-pop concert. This is the application form. Guess what did i choose? πŸ˜‰

Yup, you’re correct. One of them is watching k-pop concert. Hahaha. And fortunately, i didn’t wait too long to make it happens. There was 2014 Incheon K-Pop Concert which is part of Incheon Asian Games on September 17th and IIRF gave us free tickets. Yeayy!

The concert was held in Songdo International Business District. There are cool buildings around there. I wanted to go earlier and look around but I had to do my assignment. Hiks. I arrived at the venue around 4 PM then went to the ticket booth to collect my ticket. International students’ area is F1, which is the nearest to the stage.

The concert started at 7PM with performances from K-Pop Dance Cover finalists. Finalists from Thailand, India, and Indonesia impressed me. Finalist from Thailand is kinda cute, one of them slightly resembles L. India’s performance had cool concept. Actually I’m quite surprised that k-pop is well-known in India. And there was loud cheering when Indonesian team performed. Why? Because they’re males but they covered AOA’s mini skirt. Hahaha. It was fun but embarassing at the same time.

After short break, performance from the k-pop idols started. BTS was the first performer. They performed Danger and Boy In Luv. I don’t know much about several next performers. There was BESTIE with their cutesy concept, ZEST, Boys Republic, HIGH4, JJCC, and Red Velvet. I only know that HIGH4 did a collaboration with IU and JJCC is a group created by Jackie Chan. JJCC impressed me with their acrobatic moves. Red Velvet is the newest group from SM Entertainment. I don’t remember the members’ names except Joy because she looks like Kim Yoojung. They performed their debut single, Happiness.

After Red Velvet, there was 100%. They are one of my favorite group. Since leader Minwoo leaving for the military service, i set my eyes on jonghwan. And yup, he’s kinda charming. My focus that night was on him. πŸ˜› Next performer was G.Na! BEAST’s labelmate. I love her. She performed G.Na’s Secret and Black & White. Next, member of first generation idol H.O.T Jang Woohyuk. His performances were enjoyable. I like them. Funny when he was talking, there was “oppa! oppa!” screaming from the audience and he said “geumanhae!” which means “enough!”. lol

After that, SECRET performed. Sunhwa was very energetic. And her fan service was good. She was throwing love sign everywhere. Next, Jay Park performed So Good and Joah. Loveee it!

Next one, T-Ara. I thought their popularity is decreasing because that bullying scandal. But people sitting next to me were their fansite masters. Those people brought their expensive cameras with very long lenses to capture the performance. And they kept cheering “hwaaa hwaaa”. Hahaha. My ears hurt. It was nice experience tho. Btw, Soyeon’s face changed so much. o_O T-Ara performed Sugar Free and Roly Poly. I think I will enjoy it more if it was before the scandal. I liked Roly Poly.



Next, 4Minute. I don’t really like their songs. But I like Sohyun and Jihyun. They performed Come In and What’s Your Name. And after that Teen Top! Ohh, I like them. I watched their live performance for the first time on Music Bank in Jakarta last year. And I can say that I like their live performances. They always have stable and enjoyable performances.



After that, KARAΒ  performed Mamamia. They’re pretty, but I think they need to interact more with the audience. And the last, EXO-K performed Overdose & Growl. The audiences who sat obediently before, now stood on their chair. I did it too because i couldn’t see anything if i just sat there. lol

It was a nice concert, although my top favorite groups like BEAST and B1A4 weren’t there. I wish I can watch more free concert here. #nggakmodal xD

Btw, is there any organization like IIRF in Indonesia?
