Samurai - Musashi

Posted by engi at 3:28:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post
Samurai!
That's what came to my mind at the first time I saw this guy face. Amazingly has a very Japanese face with goatee and a bit mustaches plus medium tied hair :D I think he has classical Japanese face, or is it me and my interpretation only?? Too bad I cannot show his face in here, cuz it will against his right as human, hahaha.. He will be famous in few minutes and then chasing me with Katana :p Gomen ne K-san...

Talking about Samurai, I remember book that written by Eiji Yoshikawa

The first time I saw this book was in my university library. My first impression was 
"Wow cool! A book about Japanese Samurai!"
Second impression was
"OMG it's so thick! I could beat on thief using this book, haha.."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I tried to find the synopsis of this book as follow

MUSASHI - SINOPSIS EDISI INDONESIA


Price range (soft cover) : IDR131,750 @bukukita

Miyamoto Musashi adalah anak desa yang bercita-cita menjadi samurai sejati. Di tahun 1600 yang penuh pergolakan itu, ia menceburkan diri ke dalam Pertempuran Sekigahara, tanpa menyadari betul apa yang diperbuatnya. Setelah pertempuran berakhir, ia mendapati dirinya terbaring kalah dan terluka di tengah ribuan mayat yang bergelimpangan.

Dalam perjalanan pulang, ia melakukan tindakan gegabah yang membuatnya menjadi buronan hingga seorang pendeta Zen berhasil menaklukkannya. Otsu, gadis cantik yang mengaguminya, membebaskan Musashi dari hukumannya, tapi Musashi kembali tertangkap. Selama tiga tahun ia mesti menjalani kehidupan mengasingkan diri, dan masa-masa itu dipergunakannya untuk menyelami karya-karya klasik Jepang dan Cina.

Setelah bebas kembali, ia menolak diberi jabatan sebagai samurai. Selama beberapa tahun berikutnya, ia mengejar cita-citanya dengan tekad penuh mengukuti Jalan Pedang, dan menjadi samurai sejati. Lambat laun ia mengerti bahwa mengikuti Jalan Pedang bukan sekedar mencari sasaran untuk mencoba kekuatannya. Ia terus mengasah kemampuan, belajar dari alam dan mendisiplinkan diri untuk menjadi manusia sejati. Ia menjadi pahlawan yang tidak mau menonjolkan diri bagi orang-orang yang hidupnya telah ia sentuh atau telah menyentuh dirinya. Ujian puncak baginya adalah ketika ia harus bertarung melawan Sasaki Kojiro, saingan terberatnya yang masih muda dan sangat tangguh. Mereka akan mengadu kemampuan, dan Musashi ingin membuktikan bahwa kekuatan dan keterampilan bukan satu-satunya yang bisa diandalkan untuk menentukan kemenangan.


MUSASHI - ENGLISH EDITION SYNOPSIS


Price (hard cover) : USD23.10 @amazon
The classic samurai novel about the real exploits of the most famous swordsman.

Miyamoto Musashi was the child of an era when Japan was emerging from decades of civil strife. Lured to the great Battle of Sekigahara in 1600 by the hope of becoming a samurai-without really knowing what it meant-he regains consciousness after the battle to find himself lying defeated, dazed and wounded among thousands of the dead and dying. On his way home, he commits a rash act, becomes a fugitive and brings life in his own village to a standstill-until he is captured by a weaponless Zen monk.

The lovely Otsu, seeing in Musashi her ideal of manliness, frees him from his tortuous punishment, but he is recaptured and imprisoned. During three years of solitary confinement, he delves into the classics of Japan and China. When he is set free again, he rejects the position of samurai and for the next several years pursues his goal relentlessly, looking neither to left nor to right.

Ever so slowly it dawns on him that following the Way of the Sword is not simply a matter of finding a target for his brute strength. Continually striving to perfect his technique, which leads him to a unique style of fighting with two swords simultaneously, he travels far and wide, challenging fighters of many disciplines, taking nature to be his ultimate and severest teacher and undergoing the rigorous training of those who follow the Way. He is supremely successful in his encounters, but in the Art of War he perceives the way of peaceful and prosperous governance and disciplines himself to be a real human being.

He becomes a reluctant hero to a host of people whose lives he has touched and been touched by. And, inevitably, he has to pit his skill against the naked blade of his greatest rival.

Musashi is a novel in the best tradition of Japanese story telling. It is a living story, subtle and imaginative, teeming with memorable characters, many of them historical. Interweaving themes of unrequited love, misguided revenge, filial piety and absolute dedication to the Way of the Samurai, it depicts vividly a world Westerners know only vaguely. Full of gusto and humor, it has an epic quality and universal appeal.


 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


It's a very thick book for sure, but this book I will add in my wishing list for sure :D Now I have so many books that I bought and sat down in my book shelf nicely, I don't have time to read it yet, lol. If I buy this Musashi book in the near future, then it will need to queuing to be read, haha...

Cold oh Cold...

Posted by engi at 10:26:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post


Yes cold, I have cold rite now. After about 3 years never fall for cold, this last 2 days.. I defeated T__T

Refer to wikipedia:
The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, acute viral rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza, or a cold) (Latin: rhinitis acuta catarrhalis) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system, caused primarily by rhinoviruses and coronaviruses.[1] Common symptoms include a cough, sore throat, runny nose, and fever. There is no cure for the common cold, but symptoms usually resolve in 7 to 10 days, with some symptoms possibly lasting for up to three weeks

I'm a kind of person that won't consume any chemical medicine to cure my cold. I stopped to consume chemical medicine since I was in high school. I believe that to cure cold you only need:
* drink more water (preferably warm water, hot tea also give comfortable sensation for blocked nose)
* eat more (never ever reduce your meal portion although you feel not appetizing to eat, eat more that will help your body to cure your self faster)
* take a good rest (8 hours a day is a must when you are in cold) - I read in one of medical article that in sleeping stage, our body is repairing it self.
* consume honey - to help body defense
* consume black nigella oil - it also help your body to cure faster
It always works for me, I hope it could also work for you ^__^

PS : don't forget to use face mask so you wont infect people surround you, give them love not viruses! lol

I also have info yoga for cold, I will write later.. so stay tuned ^__^

Saturday Nite Already?

Posted by engi at 11:00:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post


I have not finish my work today, but eh? I just realize it's Saturday nite already?
Hum.. hum.. hum.. time flies so fast when we are very busy. I still must finish another work that I already delayed for a week T__T My oh my, is it me the kame onna or just I have too much work this week? lol

Again, it's Saturday. I usually chat with my friends on weekend. D, M, C, T.. all of them. It makes me happy somehow ^__^ But today C is not online, I wonder what happened to him. After our chat last week about planning to have holiday together in Bali next year, I'm thinking about it a lot. lol, ashamed!



Two issues came into my mind:
1) about the budget - I mean.. I must buy new PC before I could have holiday to Bali. I don't know how much will left for holiday. This year I already cancel my Bali holiday plan for Linkin Park concert. At least next year I could make it comes true:D Ah, forgotten about new fridge for my house.. my oh my.. shigoto shigoto! :p
2) I'm so nervous about how will my holiday with C will be? It will be my first time to have holiday with a friend (who is a guy) and it will be only just the two of us *blushing* O oh.. why did I blushing just now?Am I having a crush on him? Noooooooo.... I don't think so, although he's cute :D God he is cute!!
If T knows what I write now, he will shout "don't let that empty space last for long! Go for him!" lol, crazy!

It's been a while since I feel that romance feeling. Two psychics told me that I will meet someone in 1-1,5 years from march 2011. Well that will be around mid of 2012. Last week I and C planned to have holiday together by mid next year. The question in my mind is.. is he the guy that the psychic talking about? hahaha.. I don't want to believe! just let's see :D But if that's him.. I think I like that fate... *blushing* lol

Look who's talking at this time? ckckck..

Brain Cancer - Ganbatte D!

Posted by engi at 12:32:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post


Today I feel shocked. Very shocked. Almost chocked.
One of my friend went to hospital for MRI few days ago because he found his vision become blur, got double vision, and flashing a white light sometimes. The result came out 2 days ago, and he needed to go to neurologist to read the result. Today he got the result. I thought he just okay, maybe just got problem with minus or cylindris. But somehow he told me that they found cancer in his brain. The doctor didn't suggest for surgery. My friend said he could only wait that his body will keep working or not. And could only hope. eh?! But the doctor said it's early stadium, there should be something we could do! I feel sad for him, I would like to do something for him T__T

I suggest him to use herbal medication instead of modern medication. I told him that in Indonesia there are some people that cured from cancer after take herbal medication. I also told him story of a guy that being told by his doctor that he could only last for 3 months because of brain tumor. His doctor has given up, but he encourage him self to take herbal medication to get cured. At the time he predicted to die, he did MRI again and the result was his tumor already decreasing in volume by 70%!! That's a lot man! And thanks god he still alive till now. I don't think herbal medication is something popular in England but at last he interested to try it. He will visit Chinese herbal clinic next week. I keep wishing that they could save him, Amien.

D my friend I know you will survive and get cured!
Ganbatte kudasai!! Faito!! ^__^

Review : Wisma Pertamina Jakarta

Posted by engi at 10:51:00 PM 29 comments Links to this post
Lama ngga ngeblog.. busy busy busy -___-"
Saking busynya bahkan belom nulis betapa senangnya abis liat konser Linkin Park 21 September lalu T__T

Sekarang Engi mo review tentang wisma tempat Engi nginep selama di Jakarta. Namanya Wisma Pertamina (WIPERTI) Lokasinya di Jl. Medan Merdeka Timur (depan Stasiun Gambir) Telp: 021-3865412/13/14.

Pertama alasan mengapa aku memilih tempat ini untuk menginap:
1. Di Jakarta cuma 2 hari 1 malam
2. Pulang dari Jakarta mo naik kereta api, jadi mending nginep di tempat yang terdekat dengan stasiun Gambir, secara aku juga ga tau Jakarta and ga ada waktu buat maen-maen keliling Jakarta -__-
3. Harga lumayan lah... yang di lantai 1 - IDR225,000 ; lantai 3 - IDR212,500 ; lantai 2 - gak tau:p

-------------------
Update per 29 Agustus 2012 by Brillian Errol
harga lantai 3 Rp 215.000 include sarapan pagi kopi/teh
untuk lantai 2 Rp 275.000 include sarapan,
semua kamar ber AC ,TV 21",2 Buah handuk,sabun,dan Air panas dlm Termos. 
------------------

Walaupun awalnya was-was karena setelah baca di beberapa forum katanya tempatnya agak kuno gitu, tapi untuk nginep semalam aja rasanya nggak papa deh.. Berikut penampakan kamar yang aku tempatin (lantai 1 - IDR225,000):


bed

bed lagi...

TV - saluran Indonesia only :p
2 pcs towel

 pintu ke kamar mandi 

 entrance + set kursi + lemari gantung + keranjang laundry

 wastafel di kamar mandi

 penampakan kamar mandi + kloset

 balkon

 balkon lagi...

lorong depan kamar

Gimana? Dalam kamarnya lumayan kan? Cuman ya memang ada kesan kayak hotel jadul gitu, hehehe... Tapi lumayan yah kalo cuman buat semalem dua malem dengan harga terjangkau :p

Everything just okay, cuman resepsionisnya kayak cool-cool gimana gitu lho. Kata-kata udah sopan tapi kayaknya kurang latihan senyum :p Agak maklum seh orangnya Bapak-Bapak STW gitu.. kalo dibanding resepsionis hotel pada umumnya ya masih kalah ramah -___-"

Positive :
* dekat sta. gambir
* irit ongkos taxi
* cocok buat yang datang dari luar kota and cuma ingin transit ato nginep semalam
* kamar bersih lumayan nyaman lah
* Kamar mandi ada wastafel + shower + bak plastik n gayung (buat yang nggak biasa pake shower kalee..)
* harga bisa dibilang murah untuk penginapan di tengah kota
* fasilitas AC, TV, air minum, handuk, sabun

Negative:
* bangunan agak jadul
* gak ada lift, jadi kalo dapet kamar yang lantai 3 siap-siap aja buat bakar kalori :D
* resepsionis pengucapan sopan  tapi kurang latihan senyum -___-"
* gak ada bath tub (harga segitu kok ngarep bath tub! hahaa..)

Well,that's all my review.. the choice is in your hand!

OMG, it's already 4 days from today. I'm so excited! Although I only bought the cheapest price ticket, lol. Hear their voice live n watch them from a far or big screen just enough.. :p Look how this poor woman talk, haha!

Below is my ticket ^,^

I will go to Jakarta by train, I miss to use train a lot. I will take Malang - Jakarta route. The train name is Gajayana, it's an executive train so it will be very comfortable for me to ride it for 14 hours. My oh my.. 14 hours:D I will need to bring a lot of food with me!

Just visit PT. KAI's web to see how's the Gajayana's interior, well I think it's very comfortable. I will take my own documentation when I take this train to Jakarta.

In Jakarta I will be taken care by my childhood friend. Too bad he cancelled his plan to watch the concert with me. He's one of Linkin Park's fan just like me, and he's so sad because he must work overtime at that day instead of watching the concert. Poor Chup T__T  After the concert he will send me to his friend flat, because he must back to office again. I'm thinking about to stay in an inn near Gambir train station so I could wake up late the next day:p Let's see how is it..

After arrive back at Malang I will visit my best friend's house. It's been a while since the last time I visit her family. So I hope I will have fun there. Miss them a lot!

The next day I need to pick up my sister in Surabaya Airport. Well, what a busy week!

がんばります!
