+Park Min Young+

I was just browsing through Korean actresses
and suddenly I found this beautiful photo
A contemporary makeup featuring
a natural look.

Before I encountered this photo
I was searching for information regarding
an architectural style - Brutalism
I think I might be falling in love with it
after gazing through some photos

The Bauhaus architect Le Corbusier
used the French phrase
béton brut, or raw concrete,
to describe the construction of his
rough, concrete buildings.
Brutalism grew out of the Bauhaus Movement
and the béton brut buildings by
Le Corbusier and his followers.

Heavy and angular,
Brutalist buildings can be constructed
quickly and economically.

Common features are:

1. Precast concrete slabs
2. Rough, unfinished surfaces
3. Exposed steel beams
4. Massive, sculptural shapes


In my opinion, Brutalism is
all about being true to the material.
Exposing raw concrete instead of
colouring it with paint or using other finishes.
It's like when everyone's home is
standardized with a certain colour of paint.
And so an architect said
"Why should we colour the concrete?"
other questions are like
"Why can't we leave it bare
revealing it's purest nature?"
Thus, brutalist architects arose
and the style still lives until today

But we have yet to see such style here in town
urgh. . I'd wish I can see one around here


That's it for the day
and with that I'd like to end it with
a recent song that I've found out
It's one of my favourite

Wolf's Rain - Strangers

We've found a kind of paradise
in a flowers bloom
We've seen the end of a mystic land
so close it meets the parting sun.
We've shared the thoughts that two could share,
we feel the truth, magic that we send...
Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

We've heard a kind of paradise
beyond the desert's dunes
We've walked the earth in solitude,
so cold we need the warmth of sun.
We've lived the life that we could live,
we see the truth magic that begins...
Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

We've found a kind of paradise,
below a sky so new.
We've weaved a web of mystery so wide,
we need the light of day.
We've worn the cloak of secret lives,
we've seen the truth, magic that we send...
Searching for something new
Isle of Gold in flowers bloom

So when will it end?
So when, when will we meet, my friend?

Mhmm reminds me of me

1st of May, 2012 - Kaichou wa Maid-Sama! Chapter 70

+Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Chapter 70 link+

It's finally here!
But this time the story is focusing
more onto Misaki's and Suzuna's father
Ayuzawa Sakuya

In the previous chapter
Sakkun volunteered to be
Maid Latte's chef but then he confessed
that he was Misaki's long lost father.

Misaki was told by her mother, Minako
that her father left them with a high amount
of debt shouldering their family
because his father loves to gamble
and is as irresponsible sloth
However in Chapter 70
Minako tells the real story why Sakuya leaves

In this chapter, there isn't much
'Kyaa Kyaa' moments between Usui and Misaki
but only the normal perverted alien question.

Misaki. . aren't you going to ask me something?

*looks at Usui with surprise*

But it's fine if you don't want to ask. . .
Then. . . I'll ask instead

*becomes worried*

What's Misaki's underwear colour today?


That's It For Now!
See You When I See You

1st of May, 2012 - Cars

. . .Psst. . .
If you're interested in Japanese contemporary art
and you're planning to be in Japan soon,
an amazing show by Yasuyuki Nishio
one of Japan's top contemporary sculptors
opens this weekend in Tokyo.
The exhibition is inspired by last year's earthquake
and will feature several new large-scale works.

I'd really love to go and see the exhibition
but I don't have the cash yet *sighs*


It was around afternoon I was at the
parking area in Karamunsing
and I saw this car

Peugeot RCZ
which was released in May 2010
and only a few people know it's existence
It's the cheapest sports car in town
and The RCZ received the Top Gear 2010
Coupe of the Year award,
the Auto Express Special Design Award 2010
and has won red dot awards.

It is a concept car holding a
concept of the Double Bubble.

Although It's only suitable
for 1 driver and 1 passenger
It's still one of my favourite car


Next is this commercial

Volvo S60 T6 R-Design | Little Red

Basically what I'd like to share
is the Volvo cars
It's material is one of the strongest
in the whole world
and it's the safetiest car ever built.

Volvo cars can also be describe as
a luxurious car with it's design
and interior space.
One of the coming cars from volvo
are concept cars like S60 concept car.

Again, not many people are fancy
with this type of car because
they say that it's an old folks car who are rich.
Surely youths are more to sporty cars
like Nissan Fairlady and the Lamborghini.
but when it comes to accidents,
Volvo drivers will be laughing all day.

and of course the s60 is one of my favourite cars

That's It For Now!

1st of May, 2012 - Movies

Yes good morning to this lovely month
which is the month of May
also in the Roman Catholic calender
it is known as the month of Mother Mary
It is Labour day today
so I'm going to take this time to update
my blog for a little while

My finals are coming up soon
and everyone is busy finishing up
what's left of their work
I'm on my 2nd year of college
but I still feel like I haven't learn enough yet

Nevertheless, today I'll just focus on
what I've recently encounter
mhmm mhmm~


First on the list is none other
than the Avengers
A group of superheros trying to save
the world from the hands of the evil ones.

I'd say it's a smart movie
because before they directly make this movie
they split the stories focusing on each one
of the heros but too bad they didn't show
a movie about the Black Widow and Hawkeye
Overall rating for this movie is 97%
which of course it's one of the best movies
of the year and I'm sure everyone is
waiting for the next one.

However I wasn't satisfied with the Hulk
I mean the professor's character.
It's so sad that they had to find
a replacement for the previous actor.

Here's a little something XD

Next on the list is the Cabin in the woods
a horror movie with a twist in it.
I'm not really in fond with horror movies
or blood splattering and ghosts appearing
out of nowhere hunting a person down
and you're sitting there watching them
suffering until they are dead =w=
I was like covering my face the whole time
while watching this movie
but it was for the sake of Thor XD
to bad Chris Hemsworth's character
had to die in the middle of the movie
because of the barrier that he hit
while riding his motorcycle

I like the whole concept of the movie
it has a rating of 93%
Lots of movies tells about what happened
during the end of the world like
the avangers and transformers.
But this movie is something like
the terminator where it tells you
what triggers or what happens
before the battle.

It's just so horrifyingly cool

Move on to the movie Lock Out
a science fiction movie
and it's the same director who made Taken
I really love the movie Taken
but it's sad that Lock Out only has a
34% of overall rating.

Most people complain of how the guy
jumped from MS one,
a prison orbiting in outer space
and landed on Earth without a sweat.
It's not logical they say.

I like the characters but the story,
mmm not so. .

Last it Battleship
A group of new coming actors that
might be replacing Liam Nelson and Van Damme
but will never could I think *laughs*
Tha movie scores a 37% of rating
and yes lots of people complained about this one.

My first opinion. . . really. .
is that Rihanna isn't suitable for
the character that she was given.
A military lady. . okay. .
but in the movie it looked like she
was the only lady in that ship.
A reverse-harem movie?
Aside from that it's just such a pity
for the aliens because the aliens
didn't even try to kill the humans
I mean all they did was crush ships,
bridges, buildings and other
man-made stuff.
Clearly in the movie it shows that
a kid was standing in front of the alien
but the alien didn't kill the kid, instead just
went pass through it.
HOWEVER, the humans go on
and attack and kill all the aliens.
Why? Well maybe that's just the human way
I was like. . . really? Seriously?

The only exciting thing about this movie
is their strategies and the old
steam-powered battleship.
Oh! and also Liam Nelson kyaaa~!


Next will be about cars
Until then~
