Behind The Good Lie

I was crawling through my cable tv when I found this movie The Good Lie. The title itself doesn’t catch me but Reese W’s presence does. It tells about family, specifically, a refugee family from Sudan who fought their way out of civil war before eventually won their ticket to USA. Watching this movie, I wonder how many Sudanese facing same problem.. or worse. As Mamere so insist in giving his own…

Cerita Melawan Kuman

Baru-baru ini saya liburan lagi di RS. Borromeus. Kaget juga sih, karena sudah lama tidak merasakan sakit yang agak parah seperti ini… Lucunya, penyakit saya baru ketahuan setelah tiga hari menginap di bawah asuhan suster. Eng ing eng… saya diserang bakteri! Olala, padahal (perasaan) saya rajin jaga kebersihan dan hati-hati kalau makan. Ternyata, bakteri sangat pintar mencari celah untuk menyusup ke dalam tubuh. Untung Hanif tak ikut-ikutan sakit. Antibodi-nya cukup…

“What Does The Fox Say?” (Ylvis)

This one is currently popular among netizen. I know, I should’ve speak about them few months back when they first hit Youtube hype button. But honestly, I never heard of them until they showed up in MNet MAMA Award 2013, last November. Ye~~~s it’s another K-Pop fancy I watch lately beside Idol Fun Club and Let Me In (ooh, their transformations always pop my eye!) *Ehm…back to Ylvis. Actually when…

The Wispy Hummers

Saya tak sengaja menemukan gadis ini ketika asyik berselancar di Soundcloud universe. Awalnya saya tertarik oleh namanya yang berkesan out-of-this-world. Entah bagian mananya, “wispy” or “hummers” thing..tapi pokonya nama The Wispy Hummers seketika memancing penasaran saya. Lagu pertama yang mampir ke telinga saya adalah In Your Eyes. Sejak awal tombol Play saya tekan, suara khas Joan Lumanauw langsung mencuri hati saya. Kombinasi antara suaranya yang serak namun lembut, dengan gitar…

letters from iwo jima

Yaiii…I just watched a WAR movie today! think it’s a big progress, eh? :p

Well actually I just caught up watching this movie while searching for a good quality or at least worth-watching program on tv. Need to look twice before I eventually watch it, tho’ hubs keep saying “It is a good movie!”. Sorry hubs, war is never in my book. Ah well, I watched it anyway. This movie gave me two reasons why I should be interested. First, it’s taken from the Japanese point of view & therefore, speaks Japanese. The other is because Clint Eastwood directed it. He’s a good actor & now a good director. Most of his movies are talking about human being, see through our humanity perspective. Which is nice.
