Wooot~ Here we go again!

Hmmm...what should I say in this post?????
Well, basically I'm just saying that this journal is semi f-locked
since I have posted some copyrighted material as well as private entries, so these got to be locked for safety reason...

It's too late to make an introductory post I know, but better late than nothing, no?? Been livejournal-ing since 2005, but made this intro just now.

Okay, I'm Enno, I live in Jakarta-Indonesia -just moved here last December 2010-
I'm tiny, curly, a little bit crazy and tend to get really loud when being excited about something. ^^
My 2 biases are~~

1st - Kamenashi Kazuya from KAT-TUN, he was my first love, saw him in Nobuta wo Produce and I thought he was too scrawny for his own good. But I like him nonetheless. Oh, and what do I like the most about him? His hardworking personality!

2nd - Kim Jaejoong from JYJ of Tohoshinki. A human should not look THAT perfect, I swear! God must have spent a lot more time in creating such a gorgeous person. He smiles like an angel, he smirks like a devil, he looks good in everything he wears, he cooks, he sings beautifully, he's good with kids.

What would you find in this LJ?

  • My random rambling, my personal thoughts, my fandom life (Yuzuru Hanyu, Kat-tun, Arashi, Nino, Ryo and Kame...and everything in between that I'm in the mood to write. I'm a rather emotional girl, so you'd probably find some emo stuff right here, well, you could just ignore that.

  • Some subbed videos I sub personally.

  • Some videos, especially from SS501 (MVs, DVDs, Perfs) (Currently not available since Megaupload got confiscated)

  • Some fanfiction I write but haven't managed to finish (I feel really sorry for this)

If you want to find something in my blog, you can always use the tag list, a~nd, if you'd like to add me to your friend list, just kindly introduce a little bit of yourself to me. Umm, I have facebook and twitter account, so maybe we could also chat there??

I think that's all...
Ciao ^^

It's been a bit more than half a year after I came back to Jakarta due to my current job. And as much as I love my job right now, I have to say that it is horribly tiring and scary. But I'm not gonna write about my job in this post (coz it's gonna be boring). Instead, I'll write about my adventure on getting on public transportation in Jakarta.

Ever since I moved back here, I have mostly relied on go-jek or grabbike, as in motorbike taxi. But recently gojek and grabbike increase their price, hence I need more alternative especially if I want to go to downtown or just which is quite far from where I live and work.
Yesterday, when I checked through my gojek and grab app, the fare for a ride from Ahmad Yani to Plaza Senayan was about 34k - 37k. It's quite price for me since with that amount I can have a meal at a fast food restaurant.

Hence, this morning I ended up googling for transjakarta current routes and right at 10 this morning I walked from my apaato to Ahmad Yani shelter. The distance from my apaato to the bus  shelter is around 800m, it's more or less 10 minutes walk. Since 2013, Transjakarta has require its passengers to use e-money for paying. What I love about Transjakarta is the flat price, wherever you go, as long as you don't get out of the shelter, you only need to pay Rp 3.500,-. Insanely cheap!!!

Unfortunately, my destination...which I've mentioned earlier (Plaza Senayan) doesn't really have a nearby transjakarta shelter. So my solution is to combine transjakarta and gojek. I'd say that my travel was quite fun. The waiting time at the shelter was actually quite short, approximately under 10 minutes or shorter. I'd say that the current transjakarta bus is quite comfortable. It can get full and hectic at busy hours but since I travelled on weekends, it's much better. So...to compare prices...with gojek/grab I would have to pay 34k minimum, but with transjakarta+gojek (from Bunderan senayan shelter) I paid only Rp 8.500,- in total. Hehh...bloody cheap, lol.

Now, let's move on to what I bought at Plaza Senayan...As I've been a figure skating fan since last year, this time I reserved a photobook. Yepp, a Yuzuru Hanyu season photobook. I've been an avid fan of Hanyu since Helsinki World Championship last year. No words can describe how etheral his skating is. And as some Fanyu said, Yuzu's face is like one out of a manga/anime. While I was there I found Men's Non-no which has Nino on the cover. I was dying to buy it too, but since I'm still tight on budget...yeah, I put it back on the shelves. Let's hope next month they still have some Arashi on the cover of Japanese mags. I'll definitely buy one.

Bad decision?

Sometimes, many time if I'm being honest. I question myself, whether it was the many bad decisions, wrong choices or pure lack of lucks that caused what I'm feeling right now. A precious friend that I thought should have known me, that I thought should have known the way my mind works, turn out he didn't know me at all. No, it's not about me having any particular feelings for him. I knew from the start that he had a girlfriend who had became his wife by now. I didn't in the slightest ever want him for myself. It's just that...when you have someone you can confide your thoughts in suddenly furthering themselves away, it kind of feels all the friendship, the heated discussions and the mere memories looked so far and ages away.
What I regret was that, he never talked about it, he never asked or even mentioned it. In all honesty that was what hurt the most. And now I lost him as a friend, and I don't think we can go back to how we were before all this happened. 

ketika ragu

dan ragu
kembali menyerangmu,
layaknya hantu
yang tak henti muncul di setiap lorong fikirmu.
kau menginginkannya pergi.
hanya agar tak lagi bimbang di hati.
tapi ia,
semacam jarum
yang telanjur menancap di relungmu.

kau gunakan segala cara,
kau coba segala upaya.
rupanya jarum itu telah berkarat,
hingga ia merekat terlalu kuat.

kau takkan bisa mengusirku pergi.


di sini atau di sana

Di antara ketidakpastian satu
dan ketidakpastian lain
Jalan manapun yang kupilih,
ketidakpastian adalah
kepastian yang kutemui.

Jadi biarkan saja
nasib menentukan arahnya sendiri.

Di sini
di sana
aku tahu aku hanya harus
berdamai dengan diri sendiri.



Kamu duduk di bangku sebelah
Layar ponselku menyala
dan jemariku menari mengetikkan segala macam kata
soal rencana kita sore itu

Aku tak bertanya
Kamu tak berkata
kucoba mengartikan diam itu
Hingga kini
hanya diam saja yang kurasa

Kita duduk dalam mobil yang sama
Suara radio dan lalu lintas
menjelang berbuka mengusir hening
Obrolan ringan dan tawa menghiasi sore kita
Namun tetap saja tanpa makna

Sore terakhir
Lalu kamu menjauh
Dan aku terdiam
Seakan buta
Tak mampu melihat rasa
Sore terakhir berakhir dalam diam


Di Persimpangan

Gerbong gerbong kereta melaju
melintas lepas di persimpangan jalan
Aku duduk
di dalam mobil yang tak kukenal.

Gerimis di luar
Angin pelan dari pendingin mobil itu
seolah berbisik
Yang tak terucap
Yang tak berani kuungkap

Seluruh diam dan bisu
menjadi jarak
antara rinduku padamu
dan inginku
untuk pergi dan meninggalkan sunyi ini.


Senja dan Tawa

hari itu aku merasa kecil

goresan kata ini bisu
tak mampu merubah apapun
tidak diriku
tidak pula dirimu

perjalanan masih panjang
dan sunyi tetap datang dan pergi.

saat tawaku tak lagi riang
akan kuingat lagi senja milikku
milikku sendiri.


ketika tiada

saat kamu pulang
aku mungkin sudah hilang
jadi biarkan
sejenak aku sibuk berangan
tentang pagi berwarna-warni
juga cahaya senja
yang melukis bayangmu menari-nari

waktunya tak panjang lagi, sayang
tak cukup
bahkan hanya untuk menunggumu pulang


missing you

I find myself missing you,
the old jokes and arguments,
the singing along the way,
the feeling when my arms touched your back
and your body heat
that seeped through that thin blue jacket.

We were sitting side by side,
with our eyes fixed upon rows and rows of texts.
You'll be casting me with a side glance,
and there,
we'll start it again
our neverending discussions of what
and how everything should be.

I can't bring myself to say it out loud.
I miss you....


Addicted to: Crocheting

As a continuation of my post yesterday, I've been buying yarns like crazy hahahaaa...well crocheting can somehow relieve my stress and reduce the level of anxiety (kegalauan) that I have. After my first success ordering from iceyarns.com, I've ordered more yarns from them. Right now I'm waiting for my orders to arrive.

Aside from that, I've also ordered some yarns from Lovelyarn Knits FB and poyenghobby.com. Lovelyarn Knits sells imported yarns such as Red Heart, Rozetti Montana and Aunt Lydia's Choice. Since I needed chunky yarn to make a beanie for a friend (a friend, ehh?), I chose Read Hear Super Soft yarn in navy and cream, the beanie has already been finished weeks ago, I'll probably take the picture and update this post later. Since I also want to try local yarn, I bought some from poyenghobby, their yarn is fairly cheap because I don't have to pay high shipping cost.

Oh, and I find some other local online yarn store again, here they are:

1. http://www.papiputshop.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/PapiputShop?fref=ts

2. http://www.mayacrafts.asia/
They sell high quality local yarn made of acrylic, cotton and wool. I'm planning to order from them, will update this post with a more detail review

3. http://www.iknitsomething.com/
They sell Hayfield Bonus DK yarn. Unfortunately as of now half of their stock are sold out.

They sell Caron Simply Soft yarn and Premier Cotton Fair yarn.

this store probably provide the widest selection of imported yarns in Indonesia, dunno if they'd are selling online, but I'll try to buy from them soon.

https://www.facebook.com/BolaBolaBenang/ or http://www.bolabolabenang.com/
They mostly sell yarns from Turkey like Rozetti Montana, Nako, Himalaya and Alize brand.

they sell chunky yarn from Onzie and some knitting tools


they sell Sirdar yarn, and crochet-knitting tools

I guess that's all for now, I'll update this post again with a picture of si mas' beanie and...probably some review of the yarns I bought.



An old hobby of mine has become a favorite again. Well, I've been crocheting like an old granny now a days. So, as a good crocheter, I've got to find myself some stores that sell good quality yarns at cheap and reasonable price, uh-uhh...
here they are:

1. http://www.iceyarns.com/en
most of my yarns are brought from this site, their prices are the best, it's just too bad they are located in Turkey that shipping price are bound to be expensive, in most of my case they are higher than the price I pay for the yarn. but..even with that shipping price, after some calculation, it's still worth it buying yarns from this site.

2. http://www.loveknitting.com/
this site is based in Europe, it's a UK site I think, they provide international shipping, if you're in Europe you could get free shipping for a certain amount of orders. as for shipping to Indonesia, it's a fix cost of £6.95. pretty good because no matter how many yarns you order, your shipping price will be just that.

from the address you could easily guess it's a UK site, they ship internationally too! Shipping cost to Indonesia is £7.99 per 2kg, uhmm..expensive but...whatever.

international shipping to Indonesia is flat price at £6.95, and they have a pretty good variety of yarns.

while most great yarns come from foreign countries, Indonesia also has some good quality local yarns that can be bought at:
1. Toko Sunflower, Pasar Asemka Jakarta
2. Micky Moko Store, Tebet and AEON Mall Jakarta
3. Lenny's Craft, ITC Kuningan Jakarta

it's too bad I haven't find any good yarn store in Semarang. guess I'll just have to wait for my iceyarns order to arrive then.


me & hobbies

For almost half a year I've been picking up some old hobbies back. Yes I came back to crocheting and...cooking. It wasn't unexpected for crocheting, but it is for cooking :p
I'm good with crochet, but not really so with cooking. I can make simple foods but not the complicated ones. I did some baking when I was still in college, but I didn't quite master the 'otang' yet. It was probably because there wasn't temperature control on it so it's hard to get the right temperature.
Right now, I'm obsessed with no bake cheesecakes and I've been trying to find ingredients to make one myself. But guess what? I couldn't find any creamcheese at the 3 big depaato that I visited, hmphhh!
I probably have to try Carrefour of Hypermart, well let's do it next Wednesday.
Oh...and I still have to post my iceyarns haul that finally arrived at my office last week. Also the kitchenwares I found here in Semarang. I still need to take some photos of things I bought.
Until next time :)


Certainly Not A Longchamp

For the last few days, there is this riot in the forum I hang out frequently. The topic?? Custom made inspired bags. A couple months ago we (me and my online friend) found a really really great bags maker, a home industry based in Jogja. They produced good quality bags so one day one of the members forum made a proposition to get a custom made bag that looks like a longchamp cuir bag but with more functionability for us.
The basic design is the same with LC Cuir, but of course without a Longchamp logo on its flap, the long strap is made to adjustable, and we had various material for the lining, some use 'lurik' some use suede. I got mine in purple. Here's the picture...

Milani Nail Lacquer: Pink & Proper

Have you read my post of my little haul a couple days ago here?
Well, I finally got the chance to try the Milani Nail Lacquer on my nails, yeah...since yesterday I got my monthly freedom, teheee.... it's pink and proper nail polish people, so you'll have some sweet pink tone with this nail polish, and believe me it's beautiful! I don't regret choosing Milani as my first ever nail polish since I was 9, haaaa...
Here goes the swatches...Collapse )
