Reasons Why I Hate (Or Shouldn't Hate) How I Met Your Mother Finale

I'm sure the fans all over there are divided into 2 groups, with the majority not liking how this series 'How I Met Your Mother' ended. Guess what, I'm in this group who didn't really like the finale. I have opened my mind to not hate the finale, but can't.


I bet, you've already seen everywhere about fans' dissapointment to this series ending. These are "the always-been-told criticsm" points that I agree on :

1. The title "How I Met Your Mother" doesn't match with the ending part. Technically DID, I know, but I just can't see the blue-french-horn from the early episode appears again. So the writer made us Deja vu? So, is it really how Ted met his kids' mother after 9 season? Tracey's presence is just like a little gift after the whole season showed for me. In the end, the point I get is just how Ted was so in love with Robin and asks his kids for permission to get out with Aunt Robin again. 


2. Barney's situation doesn't clear. Who the hell is woman number 31? Are they living together? I know Ellie, the baby who makes Barney's personality change. Salute. But I need to know who is woman number 31. Oh gosh. And then, why must Barney & robin get divorced? I know it's the twist, but I ship them so much. I think, the bad luck you received because the bride appears early is really true. 


3. I need more closure. It was pretty dissapointing when I have fallen in love with "The Mother"s character, but she has to died in the end. What is the illness? Seriously, "The Mother" percentage of this show is really few. 


After pointing out the hate-reasons, so I just realized something about this series from the first one. "How I Met Your Mother" is a series that tells you about friendship, love, and sacrifice, not about how Ted met his soulmate, a.k.a the mother of his kids. This is the only reason why I shouldn't hate the ending. And the fact that the whole 9 seasons always make me laugh, I know if that I want to see something legendary (read : HIMYM FINALE) happen, I must wait for it.

5 Reasons Why You Must Watch "You Who Came From The Stars"

Recentlly, I'm a bit crazy about one of popular Korean Drama, which is still airing there, the title is  "You Who Came From The Stars". I will give your 5 reasons why you must watch this K-Drama.


First. Thank you to great actors & actresses. Especially Kim Soo Hyun as Do Min Joon and Jeon Ji Hyeon as Cheon Song Yi. They are such a great lead actor and actress. For you who have watched "The Thieves", of course you've already known who is Kim Soo Hyun & Jeon Ji Hyeon. I love them so much. They act wholeheartedly like the character is real for me. Their chemistry is also perfect as a lover, seriously. I like the craziness Jeon Ji Hyeon bring out naturally while she acts as Cheon Song Yi. I laugh a lot. I like the cool factor Kim Soo Hyun show up while he acts as an Alien Professor Do Min Joon.


Second. Interesting storyline and sweet lovestory. I seldom watch alien based Korean Drama, this is the first. The combination of how an alien lives from Joseon Era until this Modern Era makes me more interested. Oh, there is one thing comes up differently, some of the storyline and script come from a children book, "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane." And randomly suits the storyline of Do Min Joon & Cheon Song Yi's love story. Daebak ! Other than that, I really praise the script writer or director or who is showing up too-sweet love story. I feel really ENVY with that capslock letter, seriously.


Third. Lovable Soundtrack. Every drama needs some memorable soundtrack to increase their popularity,isn't it? And for me, all the soundtracks I listen from this drama are really lovable.

1. Lyn - My Destiny
2. K.Will - Like A Star

3. Hyorin - Hello Goodbye

4. JUST - I Love You

5. Sung Si Kyung - Every Moment of You

Fourth. Fashionable Sets. Who doesn't love man in suit? Do Min Joon's style is really hot. I love how his personal drama stylist make him so handsome with those suits and coats. I also love all Cheon Song Yi's fashionable dress, pyjamas, and t-shirts. I am personally in love more with Cheon Song Yi's lipstick color. They are very bright and pretty. I know now why Do Min Joon always wants to kiss Song Yi, hahaha.



Fifth. Good quotes, good CGI, good supporting actor & actress.


Two more episodes left. Sigh. I hope it has a happy ending.

Goodbye and Thanks 2013

2013 has become a roller-coaster year for me. I felt many waves of adrenaline that made my head in frustration but also left my heart in excitement.


FUN

I tried some new things in this 2013. One of them is my new hobby : snailmail-ing. Getting some cute letter notes, stamps, postcards, stickers, tea-pockets, and sweets are really exciting. Going to a post office then waiting for a postman, what a freaking-new experience. I had so much fun doing this. What else? I also grew my interest in makeup this year. I tried to draw eyeline with eyeliner, tried to redden my lips with lipstick and other makeup things. Thanks to beauty blogger and beauty vlogger. Some day a little girl should have to learn to put some makeup on, right?

Thanks to &&AHNY Project from Papered Thoughts. I got this from Hope Trunfio, Australia

LOVE

I ever heard this quote : "Love is like a lost object. If you search too hard, you won't find it. But if you just forget about it momentarily, it will show up in the most unexpected way." I really don't know what kind of love story God will show us. I love how Pope Francis show to the world that everyone, including some disfigured guys need love and sincerity. I love how Royal Family, especially Kate, shows us how to be humble and classy at the same time. And I was really happy that God gave me a boyfriend this year. He really showed me an unexpected moment and a shower of love in this year. My parents, my sister, my brother, my friends and all people surround me are also the greatest love that I ever accepted. Many thanks to God :)

Thank you all !

DREAM

Graduated from my college was my dream and also my resolution this year. Thanks again to God, this wasn't only a dream, but a reality. Finally I graduated and saw my parents in smiling face.

LOSS

Not going to my favourite Korean band's concert was really a heart-breaking for me. I'm a fan of CNBlue anyway (who's with me?). They held a concert in Jakarta and I didn't get to watch their performance. Such a regretful moment. But actually, Cory Monteith's death was really a loss for me. I love Glee since the first episode. I love Cory-Lea's relationship, in fact they already plan a wedding. Sigh. Paul Walker's death was being another breaking news. Why such a man leave this earth so fast.

ENTERTAINMENT

I got half part of 2013 laughily because of entertainment news. Who didn't know Jennifer Lawrence from Catching Fire, Miley Cyrus and her Twerking-NudeWreckingBall, Harlem Shake, Daft Punk, LordeBlurred Lines, and last Victoria Secret Fashion Show. I enjoy all part of this entertainment world. I listed my favourite songs from 2013, here you go :

1. EXO - Growl ( Repeat one and never get bored. Just try listen to it. Feel the beat )
2. Alesso & Calvin Harris - Under Control
3. Dirty South & Alesso - City of Dreams

5. Justin Timberlake - Mirror
6. Will.i.am ft Justin Bieber - #thatPOWER
7. James Arthur - Impossible
8. Zedd - Clarity
9. Paramore - Still Into You
10. Lady Gaga - Applause
11. Macklemore - Thrift Shop
12. Henry Lau ft Kyuhyun Taemin - Trap

Miracle in Cell No. 7 (2013) Korean Movie

Gosh, I know I'm such an easily crying girl, but this movie REALLY breaks your heart. Damn, I'm in a sobbing mess while watching this !


a brief storyline

Yong Goo, a mentally ill father who accused of murder and rape successfully brings in her 7 years old daughter, Ye Seung, of course with a help by some friendly criminals in his cell. In this cell number 7, they have a mission to protect these two Father-Daughter and also to prove Yong Goo isn't a murder. Will they succeed?


a fair review

OH MY ! This movie absolutely wins my heart. Every single scene successfully makes my heart flutter. Hats off to every actors in here, especially Ryu Seung Ryong ! His acting as a mentally ill father is really perfect. He isn't just bringing the character of a mentally ill father but also a character of father who loves her daughter so well. I also adore Kal So Won as Ye Seung child ! How can this cute little girl can act like that? She is very cute and smart, like her character. I can really feel the father-daughter bond.


Everyone must be thinking at first that criminals in cell with Yong Goo are bad, but they aren't. In the end, all bad person in cell, including prisoner chief, are helping Yong Goo. I think it's because a sincere love between a father and a daughter.


a brief conclusion

For me, it's really a beautiful movie. It's really nice I can watch this movie before 2013 ended. And fortunately, I didn't watch this movie in cinema. I can shed tears, I can sob and I can cry freely. Saddest movie I ever watched in 2013. Just try to watch it. Recommended. Tell me, if you are not crying while watching this movie. I just want to know why.


ARGH ! I wanna CRY T_T



Rating : 9/10

47 Ronin (2013)

I haven't read 47 Ronin's novel by John Allyn yet, but I have listened the story about these courageus samurai from my brother. You don't have to read the novel first before watching 47 Ronin movie. ULTIMATELY DIFFERENT ! It's just an inspired movie not an adaption one.


Genre : Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Running Time : 119 min

a brief storyline

A group of samurai and of course an outcast, Kai (Keanu Reeves) join the leader, Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada) to seek vengeance upon the new ruthless lord, Kira (Tadanobu Asano) who killed their lord, Asano (Min Tanaka). 



a fair review

At first, I was afraid to watch this movie because I didn't understand at all the whole plotline of 47 Ronin. Fortunately, I brought my brother to tell me the main plot. It's REALLY different from the novel, but the main plot is still there, about the revenge of samurai. 


I don't know why this movie include some unimportant additionals, like the power of witchcraft and an outcast. Although, I really am impressed by Keanu Reeves' acting as an outcast. Oh my, he is back. You can see countless close-ups of him. But, I feel Kai's character is made just for asking the audience for symphaty. I don't like it. I want him to be a hero from the beginning (in fact, he turns out to be a hero too in the end).


One thing that I enjoy so much is the sword-play action by all the samurai, including Kai's fighting. I also love how this movie brings out well Japanese culture of Shogun at that time. Japanese culture is always beautiful. I don't know why, I don't have many words to say about this movie. Maybe I get bored? Just a little.


a brief closure

The main topic of this movie is about revenge, sacrifice and death. I can smell all of that points in this movie. They have sacrificed so much and unfortunately the reward they get is just their death in an honour way. Sigh. Don't bother yourself to watch this movie unless you love Keanu Reeves. 



Rating : 6,8 / 10

Incoming Christmas Mail #2

Let me blast my blog with these cute Christmas cards I got from swap. Have you received your Christmas card?

Look at those cute stickers and stamps in front of the envelope. They are really cute. The card is very blink, full of glitters everywhere

I got this card from Netherlands. Let's say Merry Christmas as Prettige Kerstdagen :)
