It has been a long while since I updated this blog. How are you guys? It seems like I’ve been busy dealing with things that have been going on in my life lately and let me direct part of the blame to the social media that has been feeding off my willingness to sit down and actually write something that isn’t 140 character or less and breed the laziness in me to just take the easy way by reblogging whatever represents my feelings.
But really live has been busy. To recap, my boss, (or should I say former boss) Uchida san’s project in Indonesia is over and he had to get back to Japan, thus transferring me to another project concerning Marine Security. If you guys remember, my first JICA job was on the railway sector then I got transferred to the aircraft safety and now to the ocean sector, which makes it complete. I’ve worked in all three areas of transportation.
My current job is not as challenging as the last job. I don’t get to do a lot and go places. So, I’m currently looking for a new job. My current boss told me that our project is currently in danger and he said it’s probably best if I could find a new one soon. So yeah, I’m currently job hunting. I did tried out an interview with Asahi Shimbun. It worked out well but at the end I couldn’t get the job cause my supposed boss-to-be got reassigned to Kyoto. I was so bummed when I knew about it. It could be the most exciting job ever. But not to worry I still have time till the next opportunity knocks XD
Because my current is one station further than my last, I’ve gotten tiresome of the long commute. Not to mention that I now have after hours meeting with my event organizer, Go Raikon (we’ll get to this later) and practice every Sunday noon with On! Project and even something as simple as a night out with the boyfie (and we’ll get back to this later). So taking everything into consideration I decided to rent a room in Jakarta near my workplace to make things a whole lot simple. It’s just a 5 minute walk away. I’ve been losing weight since I stayed here pretty much from walking, and not eating as much and climbing the stairs to get to my room on the 4th floor. But all is good.
So let me tell you something about Go Raikon. Remember when I help out with the cosplay event and exhibition at the Japan Indonesia Expo back in 2008. My band of friends (Vero included) worked together with Komutoku (mainly with Richie, Erlan and Juki). The event was a success, it gave On! Project the kick start they need and it also gave us me, Vero, Richie, Juki, Erlan a chance to work together, which lead us to the forming of Go Raikon. One of the reason was that since this event we have been working together a lot, so we decided why not make this into something real that could give us a chance to do our hobby and create engaging events for people to enjoy. Our first big project was handling the entertainment portion of an open air event in Blok M’s Little Tokyo called Ennichisai. The event itself was a success even though there are some minor misses on the day of the event. I really hope we could help create more engaging events like this in the future XD
On! Project has been doing well even though there are some challenges like scheduling conflicts, school and other activities that made us lost a few members. Personally, I was quite bummed at the time and wanted to give the whole idoling stuff up, since personally I’m not really a big fan of idol groups ^^;; but supports from the remaining members, other people from the management and fans of the group are the things that kept me going. Now we are more stable than before with 4 regular members being serious about what their doing. Other than dance covers we also have our original songs thanks to our two composers. According to plan the girls will start recording on November. So wish us luck, because we need all the luck we could get ^^
And now bout the boyfriend part… Yesh, I do have a boyfriend for six months now. Surprise, surprise. He does flourish (free-styling with cards, go google it) and a bit of magic, on weekends he works as his mom’s hypnotherapy assistant, which to be honest, is taking up our time together and it kinda gets to me. It makes me go ‘meh’ some of the time but I do enjoy his company and he’s a nice guy. But just for the record, I’m not trying to make this into something serious because serious relationships really freaks me out. We’ll see how it goes okay ^^;
Well what is an update without mentioning something about L’Arc~en~Ciel XD Naturally I’m planning to see them on their anniversary tour next year. Funny thing I had a dream of Ken saying that they will hold a concert in Singapore XD Let’s see if it turned our to be true 😀
