...Aku mengikuti Benicio keluar restoran, menuju taman bermandikan matahari. Kengerian perjalanan menuju Becan mulai memudar dari ingatanku. Aku berusaha keras untuk berpikir bahwa tempat ini merupakan warisan peradaban Maya kuno. Namun di permukaan, tidak ada tanda-tanda yang menunjukkan hal tersebut. Sedikit pun tidak. (halaman 223).

Dalam beberapa hal, pemikiran yang terlintas dalam benak sang tokoh utama, Joshua Garcia, diatas menggambarkan bagaimana isi dari buku kesatu ini. Bahwa apa yang terlihat di permukaan, bukan kenyataan apa yang sebenarnya terjadi.

Jika hanya menganggap buku ini hanya berisi tentang petualangan di kota Maya kuno, maka pembaca akan mendapatkan lebih dari itu. Apa yang terlihat awalnya hanya berupa penelusuran misteri pembunuhan Andres Garcia karena kasus perselingkuhan, ayah Joshua yang diberitakan mati kecelakaan pesawat, malah mengarahkannya pada petualangan - petualangan seru yang berkaitan dengan peradaban kuno Maya... yang ternyata juga jauh sekali dari kata kuno.

Terlibat perburuan akan Ix Codex, sebuah naskah kuno dari suku Maya, lalu terbang menggunakan Muwan, semacam pesawat yang dikira UFO yang digunakan oleh pilot suku Maya dan berurusan dengan gelang dewa suku Maya yang juga berfungsi sebagai mesin waktu, belum lagi berhadapan dengan agen-agen NRO (Badan Investigasi Nasional) yang selalu mengikuti dalam setiap langkahnya, menjadi santapan sehari-hari Joshua dalam petualangan-petualangannya.

Joshua Garcia sendiri, sebagai seorang tokoh utama lumayan menarik, karena merupakan personifikasi yang ideal dari penggambaran seorang remaja. Meskipun dia mengklaim bahwa dia hanyalah cowok biasa, namun pada kenyataannya, dia tidak termasuk biasa-biasa saja.

Coba pikirkan, apa yang bisa dibilang biasa-biasa saja dari seorang anak yang juga kebetulan atlet kejuaraan olahraga beladiri Capoeira, yang ayahnya kebetulan seorang arkeolog yang menyelidiki sisa-sisa peradaban kuno suku Maya, yang juga kebetulan seorang keturunan Itzamna (dewa dalam mitologi Maya), yang kebetulan hobi mendengarkan band-band keren macam Green Day dan Nirvana?

Dan itu belum termasuk kenyataan bahwa dia mempunyai sebuah blog pribadi tempat dimana dia menuliskan tentang petualangan-petualangannya. Jika seorang Joshua Garcia benar-benar ada di kenyataan yang kita kenal saat ini, terlepas dari orang akan percaya atau tidak dengan isi blog-nya yang lumayan fantastis, ada kemungkinan Joshua Garcia akan bisa menjadi seorang remaja yang terkenal lewat media sosial seperti hal-nya tren akhir-akhir ini pada generasi muda saat ini.

Sebagian pembaca mungkin akan berpotensi menganggapnya membosankan sebagai dasar dari seorang karakter. Namun sebagian lagi akan dengan mudah mengidolakannya.

Terlepas dari kekurangan-kekurangan yang ada, dan mungkin keseruan cerita yang berkurang karena tahun 2012 yang menjadi inti dari ramalan suku Maya sudah lewat, Joshua Files masih dapat dinikmati sebagai sebuah buku fiksi petualangan yang lengkap dan seru.

Selain itu, sang pengarang sendiri cukup lumayan sering berinteraksi dengan fans, dengan terkadang berkunjung dan turut memberikan komen atas review-review yang diposting di blog-blog para pecinta buku, termasuk yang dari Indonesia. Beberapa kompetisi yang berkenaan dengan serial ini juga telah diadakan oleh M.G Harris untuk para fans serial ini, diantaranya adalah Crack The Code, Crack The Code – The Second Code (game memecahkan kode) dan Make Your Own Fake ICE SHOCK Video Trailer (membuat video trailer).

Di Inggris, Perancis, Jerman, Spanyol dan Hungaria, cover dari serial ini didesain secara khusus dengan inovasi baru yang menggunakan kertas PVC dengan pilihan warna-warna yang neon mencolok. Sementara di Indonesia sendiri, seorang Creative Director yang bernama Martin Dima bertugas mendesain cover edisi terjemahan dari serial ini. Martin Dima yang juga sebelumnya telah mendesain cover edisi terjemahan dari novel “Neverwhere” karya Neil Gaiman, memutuskan untuk memasukkan ilustrasi-ilustrasi cantik yang berunsur suku Maya dalam desain cover serial The Joshua Files, yang pas sekali dengan isi bukunya dan layak untuk dijadikan koleksi yang menarik. Meskipun harus diakui bentuk cover yang termasuk kreatif ini juga dapat dibilang lumayan rapuh dan gampang sobek, jika misalnya, saat dibawa didalam tas yang penuh.

Akhir kata, serial ini mungkin juga bisa sedikit membuat kita sejenak berpikir bahwa akan selalu ada perputaran di hidup ini antara masa lalu, masa kini, dan masa depan. Apa yang sekarang masih menjadi kenyataan yang kau alami dan percayai, di masa depan mungkin sudah tidak akan sama lagi, dan berganti menjadi masa lalu dari kenyataanmu.


...”Kau ragu karena di dalam hatimu kau yakin dunia memang benar-benar bisa berakhir” Vigores berkomentar. “Seumur hidupmu kau hidup di tengah peradaban yang bisa ditelusuri kembali jejaknya hingga ke abad pertengahan. Tetapi ingatlah sebentar bahwa kau juga telah melihat kejatuhan banyak kekaisaran – Yunan kuno, kekaisaran Roma. Juga kami, disini di Meksiko. Saat kau berjalan melalui reruntuhan jalan-jalan kota Maya kita, jangan lupa bahwa suatu hari nanti mungkin saja orang-orang akan berjalan di reruntuhan Trafalgar Square. Itu pernah terjadi pada setiap peradaban yang pernah bertumbuh di planet ini. Itu akan terjadi lagi. Kita semua berada di bawah bayang-bayang masa depan”. (halaman 368).

JUST REMIND ME

Pinch me if all I remember is how to live without you
Punch me to proven that it ain’t true
Kiss me when I forgot why I love you
Kill me if suddenly I said you’re nothing but the blue

Just hurt me
Or heart me
Just touch me
To teach me

If I need something as a reminder
If I thought I could lost you forever

QUICKIE HALLOWEEN MEME

 

Well, saturday again. I just went home from the shop where I usually get my DVD west tv serial supplay. I got the latest season of House and Smallville. And now I just need to find a time to watch it, since in the dvd area I'm still trying to catch up with SGA: Atlantis series (all thanks for:

popkin16 -san and kakairupowns -san who introduce the series to me).

Anyway, in one hour, I'm going to pick up my friends. We're going to watch midnight show. I dunno what kind of film they're going to choose to watch, since I honestly didn't follow what they've been play at the movie theater, lately. The last movie that I saw in movie theater was Fast And Furious, the latest Harry Potter, Transformer: Revenge Of The Fallen and Public Enemies (edited in sunday:  I forgot to mentioned, I  had watch Final Destination 3D, too!. Awesome movie, by the way ^_^). I wonder if either Star Trek or Jennifer's Body already in the theater or not. Actually, I've seen Star Trek through DVD during my last holiday, but I don't mind watching it again in movie theater.

I miss Pie, btw. Having her talk through sms and yahoo mail, isn't the same like actually seeing her face to face. It's weird when I hang out with my other friends, my mind start drifting to her. Once I told her about this, and she only answered, that she's been cursing me so that I can't stop thinking about her. Hahaha, funny.

 

Man, I really need to spare me some time to visiting her. She said there's a lot of Harajuku fashion shop spot in where she live now, and that I'm going to like it.

PS: anyway, a halloween "trick or treat" quiz stolen from:

devlinnreiko -san

and

youkohiei_fan -san. Actually, I'm torn between wanna to dressed as a stalker or a serial killer. But then I thought being a stalker is kinda gross, isn't it?. So, I thought to dressed as a serial killer instead, then. Less gross much creepy :P. Perfect for halloween.

Also, in both devlinnreiko -san and youkohiei_fan -san quiz result, I always end up as the one who did the "treat", and never as the one who did the "trick". Not fair, y'know. I wanna trick out someone, too. Probably, give them a spider-toy or something.

Okay, I'm log out. I know it's not halloween, yet. But, if some of you guys at my f-list going to celebrating it, then "HAPPY HALLOWEENY DON'T LET THE TINY VAMPIREY BIT YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPY"

KYAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!...
Have a nice weekend everyone ^_^

MY CONDOLENCE T_T

Hey, everyone. How are you all?.

 

For few of my f-list, whose also celebrates Ramadhan, I would like to say “Minal Aidin Wal Faidzin, Mohon Maaf Lahir Dan Bathin”. I hope, just like I did, you guys have a great holiday with your family and friends.

 

Anyway, just this year, before Ramadhan, we had to face an ordeal with a powerful earthquake hit in 7,3-7,4 magnitude that happened in some of my country region, Tasikmalaya, Cianjur, Sukabumi, Bekasi, and Bandung, at Western Java. My best friend Pie who just moving in to Bandung for a job opportunity had the chance to experience and survive from the quake.

 

And now, after Ramadhan, we have to face another ordeal. A very powerful earthquake happened again. This time took place in Padang, at Western Sumatra. The quake hit with 7,6 magnitude skala richter in Wednesday. It’s the same fault line that made the Indian Ocean tsunami which happened way back in 2004.

 

Up until now. a week after it happened, the government still in the middle of channelization all the aid that needed, evacuating the survivor and extractive the corpses at the location.

 

Some of the victims included:

-all three small town/village went completely annihilated, only 16 peoples left as survivor.

-just in Ambacang Hotel only, there’s 100 corpses already extractive, unguessable the total amount of it will increase until 200.

-total corpses extractive reach up until 700 body and still counting.

-along with power and telecommunications, economic also went dead.

Some fact from the location of the eartquake:

-the most needed is transportation (and probably another new secure traffic lane), since lots of donation can’t make into the crucial location, because in some spot there’s some survivor whose waylaying the transportation so they can take and have the donation first.

-the psychological/mental condition of all the childrens whose happened to be some of the survivor, also needed attention, too.

-35 region still haven’t touched by the aid team, yet.

-premium (gasoline engine) became scarce (it cost until Rp.30 ribu per liter).

-there is a lot of chance that the earthquake still will have the continuation.

-bmg predicted that in two days later, there will be a huge typhoon coming in, which will constraining the aid team to do their job.

 

Ps for one of my dearest f-list:

simply_kim -san, thank you for the condolence. I give you my big condolence and grief also for the calamity that happened in your country, Philippine. It will be very tough to endure, but be strong. My support and pray with you.

 

 

Me out now,

HELLOOO!!!

Hoi hoi, everyone

How are you all at my f-list?. Hopefully, you all in a good health and good time. I know, I’ve been abandoning this journal for a while. Lots of reason I can give you, but I think it will sounded cliché much. Beside most of it are private, and I’m honestly kinda not comfortable enough to write it down in this entry. So I just going to skip it for now.

And just straight to the main entry.

But before that, I would like to say my condolences first, to some of the celebrities below, that just passed away during my offline from LJ:

Innalillahi wa innalillahi rojiun,

WS. Rendra

He is a very awesome and a great warrior in the world of poetry and literature, even before all the boys imitates Rangga from “Ada Apa Dengan Cinta” the movie, and became fascinated with poetry to reach their ladies heart, WS. Rendra already from long time ago became the power of the beautifully art of poetry and literature in my country. It’s a huge loss for us with his death.

Mbah Surip

He’s like the new rasta icon from my country. But, he had to go away so fast. Anyway, a little story here. The day before my birthday, I kinda went home late, already almost midnight, and there’s no restaurant still open near my neighborhood. The only one place still open, it was a little stall selling Martabak (almost look like Okonomiyaki in Japan), and since I’m kinda lazy to cook something of my own for the late dinner, I decide to stop my car and buy some. While waiting my order, suddenly there’s this security guard from the estate where I lives came near me, and because he know me, we had a talks for a while. Mostly about the preparation of Independence Day celebration in our neighborhood, since I’m one of the committee. From there, he mentioned that it would be great if Mbah Surip, if he still alive, the one who’ll perform as one of the performer artist in stage during the celebration. When he saw me only silence and didn’t give any response, he asked “Oh, sorry. You must be not familiar with Mbah Surip, right?”. And I replied, that I’m pretty much familiar with the name. And yes, I read and watch the news about him (also, how come you not know about him, if every morning you have breakfast with him hanging around on tv singing his famous song). He then explained, that he knows from another conversations with some other peoples from our neighborhood, that some of them, actually never heard of Mbah Surip. From what he said next, I kinda concluded that because he thought they all came from some sort of high-class society, they kinda not fascinated by Mbah Surip, and that’s why they didn’t know about him. You know, something like “different origin, different taste”. I want to argued, because I kinda belive on the contrary, “all depends on the said person”. But, then I just keep listening, because I realize, that Mbah Surip did much more noticeable among less wealthy society. His song did touch more into the heart of common folks. And spread by the help of them, along the streets by every of the street artist who singing his song or by every kids in the slum area that playing with their friends while singing it. He is a great artist, and I’ve got to admitt, although he used to be old enough to be everyone grandpa, but I like his funky attitude. God bless you, Mbah Surip…

Rest in piece,

Michael Jackson

His death kinda shocked me. My mom used to loves his songs and play it over and over in my childhood, so yeah, I kinda get used to and enjoy his songs as well. I also remember, I used to practiced cheerleading in Junior high with his “Black or White”. It’s one of my favorite song. And the fact that Odachi-sensei Thriller Bark arc was loosely base from his “Thriller” song, it’s just awesome. I know lot of controversy about him, but the guy was a great talented artist, and probably even if it’s small, he did already tried to make this world as a better world through his arts or charities. Not much of peoples got the chance or the awareness to did it. So, yeah, rest in piece, Mike. God bless you…

 

Now, we reach the main entry.

About my birthday, yeah, just like I predicted before, it went into disaster. In a good way . Just like all the years before, me and some of my friends have “Threat’s Party” in one of the Javanese foods restaurant. I picked this place, because I used to have dinner with Pie in here, so I’m already pretty much know about the place. It’s kinda cozy place, too.

I knew from the start, that one of my friends somehow must brings a couple of raw eggs with them. See, there’s this tradition, which not exactly formal tradition, but lot of peoples in my place here still doing it, that whoever have their birthday, they got a “special threat” being the object of throwing event, with raw eggs being thrown at them. I know for a fact, during my high school years everyone usually get running away in the school field while “eggs wars” happened. The birthday boy or girl usually just submit to fate and enjoy it. After it ends, they can clean themselves up in the school bathroom. That’s why if they clever enough, they usually already bring another clothes to change.

After I went to college, they has a new prank tradition in here. There’s this fish pond that we usually using it to thrown away the birthday boy or girl in it. Or you can choose the dirty sewer in front of the college building if you want more extreme prank. The girls usually get the fish pond, since the boys doesn’t have the heart to thrown away a girl in the sewer.

Now, just like I mentioned above, I already knew one of my friends must be already bring the eggs. I guess it’s a payback time, since I’m usually the one who did the prank when their turn to have birthday came. So, I told them, probably kinda with half threatening, that I’m not going to pay for the foods if they still want to did it. They just cool with it, though I’m not exactly convinced.

And just right on cue, after I pay up the foods, and we all walking back to the parking lot, one of my friend stepped behind my back and smashed one egg in my hair.Suffice to say, a little riot happened. We’re kinda running along the parking lot, me trying to avoid the other eggs. And the parker guy of the restaurant also laughing watching us. Thanks to my familiarity with the internet lately, you could say that I shout “F*ck” and “Sh*t” all the time during the riot. We went to the parker guy after finished, said sorry about it. He said it’s okay, and even let us use the faucet near his guard booth to clean my hair a little. With the help of one of my friend, I wash my hair with a one sachet of shampoo that she already bring with her and change my formal clothes with a t-shirt and a shorts that I always bring inside my car just for prepared. After that we went home. On the way home, another one of my friend which I asked him to documentation the “Threats Party”, mentioned that he’s going to posted it in youtube. Hahaha, very funny. Thank God, the video camera he’s using was mine.

Anyway, this time birthday somehow also filled with the number Thirteenth. One of the presents that I got was a book called “The Thirteenth Tale” by Diane Setterfield. Then after I reach home at night, I just remember that a weeks before, I went rent a horror movie by Tony Shaloub (Monk) and Mattew Lillard called “The Thirteenth Ghost”, which I’m not watching it yet, until that night in my birthday. While still sms with one of my friend, I finished watching the movie until midnight. Since I’m not sleepy yet, I picked up randomly one of my old manga from my book case, and starting to repeat reading it. And guess what?. In one of the page, it’s only contain a picture of one of the main character mentioned about how many times he’s already appearing as the focus of the story. Yeah, it’s Thirteenth times. Weird isn’t it ?

 

Now, in this moment of entry, I would love to say my thank you’s to some of the awesome peoples that I can’t met face to face due to something during my birthday, and yet they still already kindness enough send their felicitation to me. Thank you! :

Thanks for

arcielfreeder ,
for the double felicitation. You know, one usually is enough, but you gave me double . Man, I like your cheering up and positive personality. Good luck with your doujinshi project. From what I see, I’m agree with kakairupowns -san , they’re looking good. And you definitely has talent, girl . You all my f-list should checking out her work if it’s already done. She’s working on sabershadowkat ‘s fenomenal ZoSan fic “Idiot Romance”. It would be awesome, man.

 

Thank you for

bronzetigress ,
for the felicitation too, maam. You’re like the keeper, always remember everyone birthday and gave us a proper felicitation at your entry. Probably some thinks it’s not a big deal to always do it. But, I think some also thinks that is very meaningful a lot to them. That also shows that you’re a caring person, maam. So, thank you .

 

Thanks for

tomeka04 ,
for the felicitation. Y’know, we’re not talk much, so yeah, it’s actually kinda surprised me that you’re sending me a felicitation. And yeah, it did kinda made me ashamed, since I’m aware I’m not hanging around at your LJ, much. That’s why I seriously very much thank you for the felicitation. I don’t care if it’s only just because the LJ’s birthday reminder. I really appreciate it … PS: I have to confessed though, before you sending me the felicitation, I’ve read one of your recent entry, you really look sad in there, it’s make me want to leave a comment. But your entry sounded so private, full with a memories of an old friend. So, I thought you might want sometime alone. Anyway, again, thank you so much for the happy birthday wishes! .

 

Thank you for the felicitation too,

horusguard76 -san.
And I would love to say “Congratulation For The Wedding”!. I really hope you’ll have a very happy married life! Have a great and awesome kids who will growns up loves One Piece, too! And hopefully if it’s boys, they’ll have a cute face like the Winchester boys …(Damn. Now, I’m thinking probably it’s not a bad idea at all to get married. Why oh why I pushes him away, anyway?. Y’know, sometimes I don’t understand myself. Or I just avoid to understand myself. Somewhere between both. Whatever).

 

Thanks for the felicitation too, 

devlinnreiko -san .
One of the few person that I most missed from LJ. How are you?. Still crave for Marco fic?. Yeah, the development of One Piece story lately, really amazed me. I mean, I always have this crazy idea that Luffy it’s like somekind of Gold Roger reincarnation or something. Knowing the new fact about Ace’s origin, how I must see their relationship, now?. But, if Luffy really did Gold Roger reincarnation, then even the fact that their not actually *spoiler* will not helping for Ace/Luffy pairing. Because that just like having your own *spoiler* as your lover. Which is disturbing. Those, Ace need another pairing beside Smoker/Ace. And in here, we have Marco/Ace as our new fix . Btw, just ignored my crazy talks since I dunno what I’m talking about. Anyway, say my hi! to 

 

tshapo_chi -san, too!

 

Thanks for

miuzzz ,
for the felicitation, babe . You name the restaurant and the day (as long as it’s in the afternoon or after mahgrib), and bring along Sakura-chan with you, you guys can joining the “Treat’s Party” part deux. Or we can just always dropping in the usual nearest Pizza Hut restaurant. I want to bring my little sister, too.

 

Thanks for the whole T. Agung kids gank! Love you all!!!... I doubt you guys ever read this journal, but thank you for the felicitations sms!!! PS: for D, I wanna see your new born baby daughter…

Thanks for Shanti, Dewi and the almighty Ewin for the special sms, too

And a very special thank you for Pie. Y’know, I’ll tell you again and again, that between all the sms that I received yesterday morning, your’s was one of I’m mostly waiting. Thanks for already being my best friend, girl. It’s true what they said, you can have a lots of friends, but sometimes only a few that really matter. And you’re definitely one of them, Pie. You don’t know how happy I am when you say that we’re a soulmate. So, yeah, even when we’re older and building a family of our own, you still will be my best friend . Take care out there in Bandung. Be a cool college counselor in there. I know you can. I would love to say that I love you a lot, again and again. But you probably already knew it, and I don’t want you to get boring with it . PS: So, have you buy the flat tv, yet?. I promise I’ll come visiting you as soon as the newest Harry Potter dvd comes out. You’re not gonna mad at me because I set back the day I plan to visiting you, are you?

Special thanks too for Arale, my other soulmate. And I’m fine with your plan to have “Treat’s Party” part 3 at our hometown with D and the others. I’ll try to provide time to going back and spending the weekend at our hometown. I MISS YOU, RA!!!

Also one more special thank you for 

kakairupowns -san. It’s been a while since we’ve met in a world called LJ. Yet, you still the one person in here, that I would like to actually really met, one day. You’re a good person, Jenn-san. It’s been an honor to know you. And it still irked me that I can’t hanging out with you just because we live in a different country. I would love sometimes to spend my weekend watching anime with you. Hell, even if it’s repeating One Piece from the beginning, I’ll take it . Oh, and I would love to go swimming at the beach near your place. I’ve been dying to swim lately, since the heat getting hot in here at my city. Not to mentioned there’s this contruction project going on near my neighborhood estate. They building the new turnpike skyway. Recently, everytime I passed the road, it’s always dusty and hot. So, yeah, swimming would be great. Again, thank you for the offers and everything, Jenn-san. Love you. Hopefully you’re not boring yet with me mentioning it again and again …PS: I’ll be waiting patiently for that present fic you mentioned about .

 

 

Well, I guess that’s all. Y’know, it’s been a roller coaster ride this year. Some just awesomely SUPER! ~ and some just broken my heart to pieces, seriously. But in the end it’s an experience, afterall. You get to learn from there and hopefully will make us a much more cool adult. Since, honestly, sometimes there’s time when I’m still felt that I’m not a responsible adult, yet. I mean, running along in the restaurant parking lot with eggs being thrown away?. Doesn’t sound to be a responsible adult or being 28 and all (MY GOD! 28! I’M OLD!). But I’ve got to be honest, it was fun. And sometimes, that’s all matter to me. Because I get to see everyone look happy and laughed. And for that, thanks a lot for all of my friends. BLESS YOU ALL. LOVE YOU ALL .

 

PS: Just like I’ve told 

kakairupowns -san before, I’m going to regularly online writing One Piece again in september. And if it’s okay with you all at my f-list, during august, I probably going to filled it with a fic from other fandom. It’s not an anime, manga or tv series fandom. It’s from a movie with a franchise. It’s not a big fandom like One Piece. But the pairing, I think it’s pretty much well known. And man, I have to say, I’m definitely in love with this pairing. Anyway, since mid 2008 until now, everytime I have the time to online, I’ve came across a lots of pairing that I enjoy and loves much, but honestly, none of it, hit me like my first love ZoSan did in the end of 2007, at least until I met this new pairing. So, yeah, I would really like to try writing a fic about them. In appearance, their description almost look like ZoSan, though. One bulky, one blondie. Can you all try to guess? . Internet cookies for the right answer (and yes, I’m still curious what the hell internet cookies are. A long lost cousin from cookie monster, maybe?). Pie, being Pie who know me very well, she can guessed it right on her first try. Can you? . Y’know, it’s probably ended up bad, but writing fanfic it’s all about fun, right?. Some of my sensei’s used to say that. Btw, Jenn-san, I have to asked again, are you gonna up to beta-ing it?.

 

Also, I’m not going to post an entry until the fic that I just mentioned about finished. So, yeah, the next entry have to be that fic.

Edited:

I found a real marimo this year, whakakakakakakak!

Again, THANK YOU ALL, MY F-LIST .

ANYWAY, SINCE SHE'S BEEN BUGGING ME WITH HER SMS, SO, I PICKED HER UP AFTER HER WORK DONE AND DECIDE TO RELAX A LITTLE TO HAVE FUN, SHOPPING AND HAVE DINNER WITH HER. MISSED HER TOO, I GUESS ^_^.

SUDDENLY, THIS STUPID CONVERSATION HAPPENED IN MY CAR, WHEN WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF OUR WAY BACK HOME. IN THIS CONVERSATON TOO, I JUST RELIZE THAT SHE ENJOYS ONE PIECE, AS WELL *SHOCKED!* (I KNEW PHIE ENJOYS ONE PIECE, BUT SHANTI, SHE'S DIFFERENT. I DUNNO HOW TO DESCRIBE HER. MATURE AND LITTLE BIT GLAMOUR, PROBABLY. AND I THOUGHT, SOMETHING LIKE AN ANIME WOULD NEVER CAUGHT HER INTEREST WHATSOEVER). SO, HERE'S THE TALKS:


If you want to take a look at the stupid conversation so onwards in hereCollapse )

A GOOD BYE AND A QUIZZZ

Well, it's obviously 3 AM in the morning. I should be already sleeping, or I'm gonna late for tomorrow. Damn. But, for someone who still in it's hiatus and not hanging around much in my lj, it's interesting that I actually took a little chance to online two days in a row. I guess, I really did missed my lj  :)

Anyway, my mom sms me this morning, said that she and her army of organization planning to held charity event again, this time helping building library for kids. Every of the member, beside money, should donate some second hand children books or children comics. And since she knows that I collecting books and comics, she consider me to be her source. She said I should donate some of my comics. Much better if I donate all of my comics, because I am already adult enough to read it and comics seems just for kids.

You know, I'm actually fine with donate some of my comics, but come on! I'm not going to donate all of my manga like one piece, death note, or else. This might be selfish, but it's too precious to me T_T

That's why, I sms back my mom, told her that I need time to choose up which one I'm going to donate, simply because not all of my comics for kids and some of it, are full with explicit content like sex and murder, and it's just inappropriate to donate that kind of comics to a library for kids, right?

And she goes, "really?". I think it's caught her attention, now, that not all comics for kids. Somehow, I really tempted to show the said material, someday when she come visiting me again.

So, good bye for my : Inuyasha series, samurai deeper kyo series, and penguin brothers series. May you all being read and use in a good hand. Amien.

Ps: but I just realize when the manga already being package and send to my parent's place, that inuyasha is a some sort of romantic manga, samurai deeper kyo is some sort of brutality manga, and penguin brothers made peoples think about child abused. OMG!, what if I just poisoned all those innocent kids with it???

Anyway, some quizzz that I took from my goddes marine_maiden-san. I think the quizzz knows me, most of it were right. which is weird, since I never gave them my numbers :P
