Graduation

page

I am back from holidays and back to do some update on this blog. Finally, after 25 months (2 Years 1 Month) of student life, i am proud to announce that I GRADUATED FROM MURDOCH UNIVERSITY!! A Long, irritating and frustrating journey for me with all the never ending assignments and uncooperative team mates.

IMG_0065 IMG_0067

And i finally stood on the stage to receive my certificate on the 13th March 2016.

10694302_10156676550725646_2692072001622575499_o

Throughout this entire journey, i am grateful of this lecturer of mine. Need to give him some credit!! haha. He assisted me in my studies and offered help on my assignment. No Doubt, one of the best lecturer for murdoch university (offshore studies in Singapore). Thank you Mr Frankie Yee.

My friends (Ching Wen and Candy) came along as well. Thank you guys for making my graduation ceremony not that boring. Of Course, I have to thank my family for going through this entire journey with me as well. Withstanding all my complains and nagging over school work. Without their support, i wont be able to graduate!!

IMG_0084 IMG_0091IMG_0085

Looking back, I came across many different types of people. I met team mates who are very uncooperative and lecturers which are just simply not that helpful. Fortunately, i managed to find my uni mates there too. We joke, we laugh, we hang out, we gossip and study together. Uni Life without them will be just too boring! Despite not getting the chance to take photos with them on the graduation day, we will always meet up some other day 😀

My Advise to all those going to pursue a degree studies will be Degree studies are not easy but with much effort, you will end up graduating as planned :D.

Untitled

It has been awhile since i went on hiatus on blogging. Didn’t really feel like moving the photos into my desktop… Opps.. Oh well.. I shall do a summary of what had happened in November and December 2015.

1. S.H.E and Aaron Yan Forever Star Concert in Singapore Indoor Stadium
page5

It has been awhile since i last went for a C-Pop concert. It has been always AKB, AKB and AKB… haha.. The feel for C-Pop concert and AKB concert, is just super different!! There are no wotagei chant but just sing along with the artists on the stage. This concert is very memorable to me. S.H.E is the 1st chinese group i like till now. I really like their songs and also their chemistry within each other. Thumbs Up! Great concert!

2. Meet up with the PeErS!?
page3

It had been awhile since we last met up with them. And since Ms Candy Tan birthday was just around the corner, so i suggested for a meet up at Peach Garden in Thomson Plaza. I Love the dim sum buffet. Yumssssss. After which, Candy suggested Prawning at Hai bin @ Punggol. Oh Gosh, it was super far from my house.. but oh well, lets not complain. I managed to catch at least 2 prawns! I am so happy! I am so bad at fishing / prawning!!

3. 3 Day 2 Night stay at Johor Bahru Malaysia.
page2

It was supposed to be a plan to move around in JB, however i was really too tired to move around and spend most of the time sleeping in the hotel! Managed to go all the way to Family Mart @ Jalan Dedap to taste my cousin’s stall burger JC burger. Unfortunately, despite being such a nice burger, it was already closed down. Had dinner at kinsahi, really love the food. We are lucky to visit the Monday night night market along KSL shopping mall. So many awesome and delicious food that i didn’t get to try. Will definitely go there again!

4. Birthday
page4

My 2nd birthday Celebration but is my 1st celebration with my friend. Really appreciate that they remember my birthday and come over to celebrate with me. Not to mention that i had my final exam on my birthday! Additional, AKB48 42nd Single Kuchibiru ni be my baby also release on my birthday too!! 😀

5. Birthday Gift for myself, meet up with friends and family
page6

After 2 years, I changed my phone from Iphone 5s Gold 16GB to Iphone 6s Gold 64GB. It was really a pity that i had to change my phone due to space constraints. The application that i had in my phone are really taking up too much space. There are Brave Frontier, Final Fantasy Exvius and AKB48 Group Music Game. Therefore i decided to change my phone. Went with my family to dine in Sakae Sushi @ Westmall. Ate alot of good food. Hope my family love it. Met up with my friend Mr Mok for a quick catch up and listen to his interesting story too.

6. Colleague phototaking session and meet up with the panickers.
page7

It was the last day of my colleague De tong in my department, it will be very sad and quiet without him beside me entertaining me. Damn!! I am glad that we managed to hang around with the full timers and the temp staff too. They are really nice people that i met in the department. After which, i met up with the panickers for Singing session and decided to take a photo to keep as memory. Actually is just take for the sake of taking photo.

7. Christmas meet up / Celebration
page9

Met up with Veron, Ching wen and Candy for a mini christmas lunch. Originally, it was supposed to be like 7 or 8 persons? but in the end only 4 turn up.. WTH. Had an expensive lunch at Ding Tai Feng @ Jem. I really dont understand the crazes for Ding Tai Feng.. Nothing really attracts me. Oh yea, forgot to mention i received my red hoodie birthday present from someone special too. Weeee… NEXT!! Met up with my Poly cliques. Sebastian baked shepherd pie. It was my 1st time eating it.. Nice!!

8. Belated Isabel and My Birthday
page10

Decided to go to Gardens by the bay since there was some christmas event going on there till end of the year. The plan was having dinner at satay by the bay however it turn out to be steamboat instead.. damn… and the steamboat is nice too… I love the satay there too. Fortunately that the weather on the day wasn’t that humid and warm, is quite windy so it feel so much better there. Many decorations going on there, childhood feeling 😀

9. 2015 countdown to 2016
page

The last activity of the year which is countdown. Original plan was to head to Hai Di Lao at somerset 313. However we waited for about 4 hours and there was still no seats available and we decided to change to Hai Xian Lao @ Wikie Edge. It was not crowded but the food quality is awesome.. Although it cost 40 plus dollars but it is really nice.. Nom Nom Nom… Had a very filling dinner and head towards Esplanade for 2015 fireworks finale….

AND HELLO 2016!!!! I seriously hope 2016 will be as good as 2015 too. CHEERS!!

Review: HKT48 6th Single [Shekarashika!]

HKTShekarashikaPromo

Is kinda late since i am doing a review which the release was like a month ago? Oh well, let me do a quick review on this Single. HKT48 finally released another single in 2015 and this single A side was damn special. Especially with the collaboration with Kinshidan.

Type A

01. しぇからしか! (Senbatsu)
I was addicted to the Sheka sheka sheka and the suki da suki da… This song was used as the theme song of Majisuka Gakuen Zero. This song really different from usual HKT style which is the Kawaii and fresh style. Good Job !

02.黄昏のタンデム (Senbatsu)
Mature? Another side of HKT too. I was actually expecting a PV for this, but there wasn’t. Sometime is really feel different when HKT tried a new genre rather then sticking to the kawaii style. Maybe is due to having an onnesan in HKT? (Hinting: Sasshi) Hahaha. No offense on this!

03. Buddy (Team H)
Interesting. Good Bye Buddy!!! Kojina as center. I keep trying to find the song that sound similar but till now i still cant find the exact song. Oh well, it sound like those oldies?

Type B

04. 夢見るチームKⅣ (Team KIV)
Muahaha.. I love this song very much. Another Team B Oshi or B Garden. It has been awhile since the akb fandom had such song. Cute and it had been in my playlist for quite awhile. Woohoo. Team KIV for the win!!

Type C

05.いじわるチュー (Yabuki Nako)
Are there any Nako chan fans / Oshi? If not i will skip this. I will say it tried to imitate Milky solo song やさしくするよりキスをして. The oldies type of song and PV. Why…..

06. 恋の指先
I have Yet listen to this song yet. Will update again when i listen to it.

Overall Rating of this single: 3/5.
Song Ranking:

  1. 夢見るチームKⅣ
  2. しぇからしか!
  3. 黄昏のタンデム
  4. Buddy
  5. いじわるチュー

Congrats to HKT48 grabbing the 1st spot in Oricon on the 1st week of release 😀

Review: AKB48 42nd Single “唇にBe My Baby”

AKB48 42nd Single Titled Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby had released!!! YEA!! What make it even better is that, the release date falls on my birthday. Ok lets skip to the main topic.
c2Mmhw9
This time round, i was quite surprised about the announcement of the 16 senbatsu members. Before the single was announced at the handshake event, i was expecting the senbatsu line up to include Watanabe Miyuki or Kodama Haruka instead of Kitahara Rie. Apparently, Kitahara Rie was shifted out of senbatsu since So Long! Reason for expecting Watanabe Miyuki as she is the current 2nd top in NMB and Kodama Haruka is the dark horse of HKT. Oh well, seems like NGT need one representative which is Kitahara Rie? I can’t say this as it seems unfair to her. Ok moving on to the tracks review.

Type A

1. 唇にBe My Baby (Senbatsu)
Pmjyp72
Team A: Kojima Haruna, Takahashi Minami, Shimazaki Haruka, Yokoyama Yui, Iriyama Anna
Team K: Minegishi Minami
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Watanabe Mayu, Kato Rena
Team S: Matsui Jurina
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
Team H: Sashihara Rino
Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
Team SII: Miyazawa Sae
Team NIII: Kitahara Rie

A very catchy song. This song caught my attention like how Bokutachi wa tatakawanai (BwT) when i 1st heard it. At first, i though it was like the 2nd Kibouteki Refrain (KR) with the WOW WOW WOW. However they make it sound even cuter compared to KR. This song sound more like a Mayuyu Center or younger generation member center type of Song. In my opinion, a much mature song suits Takahashi Minami more. According to TKMN that this is a very traditional idol song and yes it is very catchy!!! If you even watched the performance, the dance step shows T K M N Bye bye choreography. Even in the PV, it was a farewell TKMN PV. In all the live performances, up till now, Mukaichi Mion stand in for Shimazaki Haruka position as Shimazaki Haruka is still in recovery mode and i am very happy that Paruru did appear in the PV.

2. 365日の紙飛行機 (Asa ga Kita Senbatsu)
ed8ee280
Team A: Iriyama Anna, Kojima Haruna, Shimazaki Haruka, Takahashi Minami, Yokoyama Yui
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Kato Rena, Kizaki Yuria, Watanabe Mayu
Team S: Matsui Jurina
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
Team BII: Watanabe Miyuki
Team H: Kodama Haruka, Sashihara Rino
Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
Team NIII: Kitahara Rie

The 2nd main song of this Single. This song was used for an ASAHI drama as theme song. Yamamoto Sayaka centered the song and it turned out very nice and soothing. Definitely one of the song that fans will like. This song also allow Sayanee to prove her vocal worthy :D. Sweet! When i read the comments online that this song was supposed to be an NMB48 Single A track instead of AKB48 Single B track. Oh well, the management still pushing this song together with KnBmB during live performance.

3. 君を君を君を… (Next Generation Senbatsu)
9f5d25ed
Team A: Owada Nana, Taniguchi Megu
Team K: Tano Yuka, Mukaichi Mion, Muto Tomu
Team B: Oshima Ryoka
Team 4: Okada Nana, Kawamoto Saya, Kojima Mako, Komiyama Haruka, Takahashi Juri, Nishino Miki, Murayama Yuiri
Team 8: Sakaguchi Nagisa
Team BII: Watanabe Miyuki
Team H: Kodama Haruka

I am sorry but other than the members selection and Haruppi center, what’s the special thing about this song? Only the chorus which is the kimi wo kimi wo kimi wo. Ok i gonna give credit to the BGM which is the beat. Other than that. Nothing much. While for members selection, I am surprised that they select Komiyama Haruka instead of Nakano Ikumi from Team 8. And how is Watanabe Miyuki the next generation member? I guess the management should rename this unit title back to Undergirls instead of Next Generation Senbatsu. Because of this Next Generation Senbatsu naming, i read negative comments when any of these members are not selected for any performance.

4. やさしい place (Team A) [Center: Miyawaki Sakura]
Team A

Is it me or that Team A song is always full of surprises? This time round the management selected Sakura as the center instead of Paruru. I guess is due to Paruru recovery that’s why they choose Sakura instead. In terms of ranking, yes Sakura got in Top 7 while Paruru out of Top 7. When i watched the PV, so messy. Honestly, i didn’t see Yamada Nanami from Team 8 in the PV! Oh well, the main focus of this song was Sakura and Paruru.

Type B

5. マドンナの選択 (Renacchi Sousenkyou Senbatsu)
Renacchi senbatsu
Team A: Iriyama Anna, Shimazaki Haruka, Maeda Ami
Team K: Tano Yuka, Mukaichi Mion, Mogi Shinobu
Team B: Oshima Ryoka, Kato Rena
Team 8: Sato Nanami
Team E: Sato Sumire
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
Team M: Shiroma Miru
Team H: Kojina Yui, Tanaka Natsumi, Matsuoka Natsumi
Team KIV: Murashige Anna

I Love this song very much!!! The intro sound like 君は気まぐれ by Team A in Labrador Retriever Single. Is It from the same producer? Oh well, this senbatsu was done via 755 (Nana Go Go) application platform. I was surprised that my HKT oshi Tanaka Natsumi got in and selected as a center of the song. They really need to focus on this tall princess :D. This song sound very carefree and i kept it repeating in my music playlist for days! I got so hooked up by this song! Seriously!!! The PV was awesome too, with all the Natsumikan solo screen time! love it. And the paruru kawaii screentime! Damn it.. The pv sequence is by the ranking of the members in this renacchi senbatsu. The PV concept is like Flimming for many Commercial. Like it.

6. お姉さんの独り言 (Team K) [Center: Mukaichi Mion]
Team K

Yes arh. Finally Team K Center shifted back to a AKB48 members instead of kennin members since Oshima Yuko left. However, i am not sure why this song was selected for Team K? Is it to suit Mion center? or is really a Team K Style? To me it sound more like a song for Team 4. The young and fresh type of song is definitely not for Team K.

Type C

7. 金の羽根を持つ人よ (Team B) [WCenter: Kizaki Yuria, Kato Rena]
Team B

Yukirin and Mayuyu out but Yuria and Renacchi in. Not surprising that those two got selected for Wcenter. Again, seriously i dont really like the arrangement of the songs for each and different Team except for Team A. Doesn’t this song more suitable for Team K style instead of Team B? The vocal and impact type of song is for Team K. Team B is kawaii and idolish type of Song. We all know that.

8. あまのじゃくバッタ (Team 8) [Center: Nakano Ikumi]
12311089_10153442529488611_8299622864057308924_n

Ermm…. Can i dont comment about this song? The PV looks fun but the song? Vocaloid? Perfume style? Definitely not one of the nice Team 8 song that i will say.

Type D

9. なんか、ちょっと、急に… (Team 4) [Center: Kojima Mako]
Team 4

KojiMako grabbed her center back. Congrats. However, the song don’t suit Team 4. Once again, i gonna rant about the Team style again. This song suit Team B compared to Team 4. Although i like the PV concept and the intro. The intro sound soothing 😀

10. 背中言葉 (Takahashi Minami Graduation Song Senbatsu)
CVyFBkeU8AE6VQd
Team A: Iriyama Anna, Owada Nana, Kojima Haruna, Shimazaki Haruka, Takahashi Minami, Yokoyama Yui
Team K: Minegishi Minami, Mukaichi Mion
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Kato Rena, Kizaki Yuria, Watanabe Mayu
Team 4: Komiyama Haruka, Takahashi Juri
Team S: Matsui Jurina
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
Team H: Sashihara Rino
Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
NGT48: Kitahara Rie
Team SII: Miyazawa Sae

One of the best song in this single. Not every graduation song sound sad and touching. Up till now, yume no kawa (Maeda Atsuko), Namida no sei janai (Shinoda Mariko), Tsuyosa to Yowasa no Aida de (Akimoto Sayaka) and Kimi no dai ni shou (Kawaei Rina) are the best for now. With the additional of this song, this will definetly rank up for the graduation songs in AKB. The PV show how much Takamina had made herself such an important figure in AKB history. Honestly, i wonder how will AKB turn out with Takamina guidance. I know that this responsibility had handed over to Yokoyama Yui but the feel is just so different. Last but not least, why is Komiyama Haruka chosen? and not Kojima Mako? since almost all the next generation ace like Owada Nana, Mukaichi Mion is in?

Theatre

11. さっきまではアイスティー (New Unit: 虫かご)
Team B: Goto Moe, Fukuoka Seina
Team 4: Komiyama Haruka
Team 8: Sakaguchi Nagisa
SKE48 Kenkyuusei: Obata Yuna, Goto Rara
Team M: Uemura Azusa
Team BII: Yabushita Shu
HKT48 Kenkyuusei: Aramaki Misaki, Imamura Maria
NGT48 Kenkyuusei: Oguma Tsugumi, Takakura Moeka
Didn’t had a chance to listen to this song yet. Will update when i get to listen to it. Usually, it will be weeks after the released. Oh well, moving on….

Overall Rating of this single: 3.5/5.
Song Ranking:

  1. マドンナの選択
  2. 唇にBe My Baby
  3. 365日の紙飛行機
  4. 背中言葉
  5. やさしい place
  6. お姉さんの独り言
  7. 金の羽根を持つ人よ
  8. なんか、ちょっと、急に…
  9. 君を君を君を…
  10. あまのじゃくバッタ

Congrats to AKB48 grabbing the 1st Spot in Oricon chart for the 1st week. This is the 1st single since Sakura no ki ni narou that did not obtain 1 million sales in 1st week. I guess is due to the recent issues about the change in the theme for interview event that is balloted for Year 2016.

*Warning Spoilers ahead* [Highlight below to see the content.]
This was announced as Takahashi Minami Last Single! However, AKB48 43rd Single Senbatsu member lists was announced on the 15th December 2015 and Takahashi Minami was part of it. Technically, AKB48 42nd Single is her last 2nd single. And there was a lot of comments about the 43rd Single Senbatsu members list. I saw negative comments more than positive comments. I was not surprised that many fans had moved on to the new generation members especially for Team 8. Fans are expecting Team 8 and the Next Generation Senbatsu members to raise! But it doesn’t seem to work that way except for Mukaichi Mion. Apparently, since BwT, Mion is receiving alot of exposure compared to Owada Nana and Kojima Mako which were the supposed next generation Ace. To be honest, 43rd Single Senbatsu members list is my ideal AKB48 Senbatsu! I got no complains and i am Definitely looking forward to it. The list is as follows:

AKB48 43rd Single Senbatsu Members (21 Members):
Team A: Kojima Haruna, Takahashi Minami, Shimazaki Haruka, Yokoyama Yui, Iriyama Anna
Team K: Minegishi Minami, Mukaichi Mion
Team B: Kashiwagi Yuki, Watanabe Mayu, Kato Rena
Team S: Matsui Jurina
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka
Team H: Sashihara Rino
Team KIV: Miyawaki Sakura
Team SII: Miyazawa Sae
Team NIII: Kitahara Rie
Graduated Members: Maeda Atsuko, Oshima Yuko, Shinoda Mariko, Itano Tomomi

This will most probably be the last single participation for Miyazawa Sae as she had announced graduation on 16 December 2015. The exact date of her graduation is still to be confirmed. As for Takahashi Minami, this will be her last single as her graduation date is confirmed to be on the 28 March 2016. Shall look forward to this new single 😀 Cheers
