Another Weird Dream [ft. 2ne1]

Just another old weird dream I had. This one featuring 2ne1, a girlgroup singer from Korea. They are wellknown for their unique personality. You can watch their daily life in their TV shows called 2ne1 TV. There are videos with English subtitle available online.

In my dream I was 2ne1's friend. I was chit chat-ing with them during their break time. We were in a room that full with their clothes, maybe that was their dressing room. They all wore casual outfit like what they wear when they are practicing. 

I talked to Dara first. We went to an aisle outside their dressing room and talked there. I don't remember what we talked about before. What I remember we talked about how we celebrate birthday in Indonesia. Of course I talked to her with my broken Korean. Hehe

Another Weird Dream [ft. BEG]

This morning on my way to work suddenly I remembered my weird dream I had almost 2 years ago. I think I had this dream when I was addicted to a Korean variety show called We Got Married where Jo Kwon of 2AM and Gain of Brown Eyed Girls (BEG) appeared as couple. I posted it in my old blog, but I want to share it again here. I'm still laughing and shaking my head thinking How could I had such a weird dream when I remember it. 

For you guys who don't know who Brown Eyed Girls is, they are a female singer group from South Korea. One of the member, Gain, recently appeared in Psy's "Gentleman" music video.

Review : Shades of Earth by Beth Ravis

Title : Shades of Earth (Across The Universe #3)
Author : Beth Ravis
Published : January 15th, 2013 by Razorbill
Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind. They're ready to start life afresh--to build a home--on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.

But this new Earth isn't the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed's former passengers aren't alone on this planet. And if they're going to stay, they'll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who--or what--else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been for nothing -goodreads

Review : Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woone

Title : Dead Beautiful (Dead Beautiful #1)
Author : Yvonne Woone
Published : September 21st 2010 by Disney-Hyperion
On the morning of her sixteenth birthday, Renée Winters was still an ordinary girl. She spent her summers at the beach, had the perfect best friend, and had just started dating the cutest guy at school. No one she'd ever known had died. But all that changes when she finds her parents dead in the Redwood Forest, in what appears to be a strange double murder.

After the funeral Renée’s wealthy grandfather sends her to Gottfried Academy, a remote and mysterious boarding school in Maine, where she finds herself studying subjects like Philosophy, Latin, and the “Crude Sciences.”

It’s there that she meets Dante Berlin, a handsome and elusive boy to whom she feels inexplicably drawn. As they grow closer, unexplainable things begin to happen, but Renée can’t stop herself from falling in love. It’s only when she discovers a dark tragedy in Gottfried’s past that she begins to wonder if the Academy is everything it seems.

Little does she know, Dante is the one hiding a dangerous secret, one that has him fearing for her life.

Dead Beautiful is both a compelling romance and thought-provoking read, bringing shocking new meaning to life, death, love, and the nature of the soul - goodreads

Everything dies. Sometimes too soon.
