Yi Teng smsed me about an hour ago but i didn't read it till 1am. I have my history test tmr and I am tired and all, but i really wanted to blog about it because i need a memory of this.
she told me she teared while listening to Uruha's guitar solo in Reila.
That might have been the most memorable sentence she told me in our whole entire encounter and friendship and fangirlship.
Seriously... I think reila isn't exactly a huge favourite among gazette fans. I don't know, i never really went around asking. but it is a very special song for me because not only it shares the same katakana as my name, but because this is exactly the song, that made me love Uruha so much.
I remember vividly how I teared when i first heard reila... with no idea what the song was about at all. It wasn't Aoi that caught me despite him starting the solo first, or the fact he was the one playing both acoustic or electric that makes him seem technically more brilliant.
It was Uruha that pulled that string in my heart.
I know yi teng didn't feel anything the first time she heard it, and she was so surprised to see the number of plays reila got in my itunes gazette list. but... really...
i felt like i managed to convince and get one more person understand what i meant when i am able to differentiate the two of them, Uruha and Aoi, just by intuition and feelings.. I don't need to know how technically a guitar works, or what part is what or anything like that. I just know it... that it's Uruha playing it. Some VERY VERY rational, practical or whatever person might think i'm a big liar saying this but. really. even to me...
this is magical.

YEH. I MADE CURRY RICEwith the help of my mama because I almost got too lazy and backed out. Let me bring you through the process. HAHA.
I bought this a few days back, when my papa brought me and my sis to buy some stuff at the supermarket so i don't have to pay for it lol fufufu. YAY JAPANESE CURRY 8D
Well... the curry stock is like, in cubes. so well there's basically nothing except curry sauce in it. So u gotta add some stuff if u want good curry rice! Well, i just added what i like (and that's why u don't see carrots lol). It's potatos, onions and chicken. Just cook em in abit of oil or butter. For the potatos u gotta cook abit longer, till it's soft... So we added meat later on when the potatos are done.
When they're cooked top it up with waterrr. And then let it boil awhile till the chicken's tender. I was impatient here. I kept asking why the potatos are not soft yet. actually they were alr, but it wasn't the starchy kinds so i couldn't tell until awhile later... ._.
Yehhh~ the curry mix's in cube form. Or rather a big cube, then we cut it into 4s since we're supposed to split it so it'll melt faster or smth. So yeah. dumped it into the pot and this was where it was fun xD haha i like the fact that i had to constantly stir it. At this point the fire's super small. well it's just simmering... cos i wanted my curry to be thick.
It ends up looking like this! -nomnomnom-
and then you eat it with gohan! japanese riceeee. BTW, it was all along cooking in the rice cooker from the beginning, if anyone is gonna try makin this. I don't think anyone's that stupid right? lol. well yeah! that was my dinner. nomnomnomnomnomnomnom
ok, i just felt like Kai while posting the whole process up. HAHAHA. but me likeee.
ANNNNNNNNNNND. I ordered Matenrou Opera Dawn of Anomie DVD today! 2 copies for me and cousin. Seems like we'll get priority to buy tickets to the May live. If the date's favourable... fufufu. You know where I'm heading to. LOL.
That's my NLSG there! yeay! and a rare NIL photoset, for a dirty cheap price as well. Damn, i should have gotten the Reila set too. I'll be on a lookout for it. wahaha.
I've also finished my first hardsubbed video. Took me 3 straight days to do it while abandoning all my uni assignments It's the GazettE's Road to NLSG backstage video. If anyone's interested in downloading it, please hop to my livejournal here!
What happened was when i bought some 2nd hand gazestuff, I received a stack of photos. Well i'm assuming the seller printed it herself, but I really have no use for it, although i appreciate it alot. So i'm giving some of it away. Well not the best prints for sure, but it's free? lol.
So. yeah. Err. how should it go? i have no idea LOL! well it's free and if u guess the picture correctly I'll mail those photos to u free of charge, provided you're willing to give me your address. Please tag your answers on my tagboard with your e-mail addy to let me contact you (if u get it correct). This is open to all people who visit my blog.
Well you're to name who is this person, which costume is he in this shoot (i purposely left abit of stuff there so u can see lol!) and the hardest part - which magazine is this from?
Telling who is this is so freaking easy. i just had to include the last question. Cos I can't believe i didn't catch this photo the first time i saw it evem though he's sooooo beautiful. well i'm actually aiming for the magazine name as well as which month/issue but that might be abit too hard. But well if you get it all right you'll definitely get the photos LOL. if not as time passes I'll be more lenient.
so good luck to you guys!
imma go mug.
if you can't do it, then don't promise it in the first place. disappointment is a painful feeling - much worse than feeling powerless.

Hurry Hurry Term Break!!!
omg i'm so tired.
uni has been quite an ass and it'll get worse after my term break. oh yeah. tmr's my last day of school before the week-long term break (thank god!!!)
i took my first test, and handed up my first graded assignment for my uni life today. You don't know how much these two tortured me. My Assignment is for Sociology, while my test today was Political Science. It was torturous... Well the soci assignment's due tmr latest actually, but it's a pain if i left it till today to do it since i've got history and pol sci tutorial tmr too (omg look at all the work)
Well... i don't know what but i just couldn't get myself started on the Sociology assignment, and convinced myself i needed to choose an article that i am actually interested in. and guess what! My article is on Japan's Lolita fashion :D i think i rock, using Japan as the perfect thing to get myself interested in my work fufufu. anyway, well if anyone is interested in reading, you can always ask from me lol!
my current nail color. HAHAHA. it's one of the ones from OPI 10 year anniversary Japan exclusives. i've got a red one - gonna wear it next week or something. I was wearing colours like duochrome gold-blood red shimmers, superman blue (u can imagine the colors, i mean u can't tell what color if i start spamming you with nail color names) and the 'darker' and at the same time 'brighter' colors for the past few weeks... then i switched to this one. cos it has been idling and i haven't swatched it before. i love it! it's pink base, with a golden flash to it, then filled with tiny holographic glitters. at first i thought it was gonna be boring... since it's quite a normal pink. but the gold and glitter made it interesting! well u can't really tell the gold in the picture. but well there is lots of it on my nails actually.
and if you guys still don't know yet, this is on my phone:
DIM SCENE tour phone strap! i finally got it engraved with Uruha's kanji at the back of the blackmoral tag... it's been a few weeks alr i think? but i never got around blogging about it. oh well.
OH! forgot to say i love my school's jap curry rice. It's only 4 bucks. it rocks. i eat it at least once a week now -nomnomnom- 4bucks for katsu curry rice. ok luh, compared to other stalls, the price tag is abit high. but if u think about the fact that one box of jap instant curry is selling at like 4 bucks in singapore? and my school's actually has the cutlet, and potatos and carrots in the curry. rocks.
ok jumping to sleep. OH WAIT. I WANNA SAY - I BOUGHT NLSG FIRST PRESS DVD. i managed to find a 2nd hand that's pretty ok for a pretty decent price too. it has a tiny scratch on one of the disc, but it doesn't spoil the DVD or whatsoever. and the rest is kept in awesome condition. i just refuse to buy that damn unopened one for 25,000yen although i'm damn anal when it comes to condition of the stuff. it's insane. i rather get myself a chrome hearts accessory with that money.
and if anybody is interested - i am pre-ordering DIM SCENE tour final @ Saitama Super Arena DVD from GURUGURU. Whoever wants to "tompang" anything from there, please let me know, by saturday. lol.

Anyway, i got the HERESY postcard. Damn, one ticket per person. Sigh.
and i should stop procrastinating sociology. If not i'm so failing it.

As you all know, Uruha to me is the best... but. ohmygod. HAHA IM RELIVING SOME MOMENTS HERE. Please click to see full glory LOL!
Ah.. Ah... Ah!!!! AOI @#@(#@*#(@!)@!!!!! -dies- new hair + chest = HOT STUFFZ.
I remember seeing Aoi's chest live too. but it was so tiny. HAHA. and he still had that snape-like hair at that time. This is so much hotter. but omg now i can picture how the chest looks like in my memories HAHAHA omg this is so amusing.
And here's a long preview - they uploaded it on Myspace!
They've sent the instructions out! imma wait for it and hopefully when it reaches me, i still have enough time to take part in the ballot for the christmas live!!
AHHHHHH, WAIT AND SEE!
By the way, there's a 30second preview of the new single alr - 14seconds longer than the previous one. But it's just guitar shredding etc... you won't discover anything new. so i'm not posting it here. I do have to say, i'm loving how the song sounds like currently!!! and gazette being gazette, i'm sure the full song will have many surprises that we all haven't discovered.
my bottom line is - it sounds promising. i have a different feeling towards this one compared to the initial feeling i got from the invisible wall. it's good!
cousin just shared something REAAAAAAAAAALLY cute!! it's this conversation Matenrou Opera had. It made me fall in love with You even more - he's sucha cutie!!!! kyaa~ Imma translate into English for those non-chinese reading people - it's too cute to not understand it!
from Visual Kei Magazine Vol.3 Chinese translation by sorane
Sono：曾经有人说我长得像无齿翼龙（字幕原文是pteranodon），可能就像它了～ [Sono: someone once said I look like a pteranodon, most probably it's like it] (layla: LOL SONO LOOKS LIKE SOME FLYING DINOSAUR HAHAHHA OMG HE'S SO FUNNY)
耀：彩雨的话比较像猫吧？ [You: Ayame should look more like a cat, right?]
彩雨：看上去像猫但是实际上我是熊。 [Ayame: Looks like it, but in reality i'm a bear.]
耀：我像哈姆太郎！ [You: I look like Hamtaro!] (layla: OMG HAHA I TOTALLY SPAZZED AT THIS, HE IS TOO CUTE! KAWAII! HAHA I WANT TO PINCH HIS CHEEKS NOW OMGGGG I LOVE YOU!)
悠：你们觉得我像什么动物？ [Yuu: What animal do you guys think i look like?]
耀: (囧笑） [You: *Bitter laugh*] (layla: xDDD so my-type leh. HAHAHA. Uru-darling has this habit of just laughing as a reply sometimes too!)
anzi：大概不是动物，是怪物。 [anzi: most probably not an animal, but a monster] (layla: LOL SO MEAN! but i kind of agree HAHAHA WHY!)
sono：anzi呢？ [sono: what about anzi?]
anzi：也许是人类吧？ [anzi: most probably human?] (layla: lol, and to think he looks the most non-human to me cos he reminds me of michael jackson =X)
i think i have something for Jrockers that do this cute stuff comparison. First it was Uruha loving Rilakkuma and him behaving like one fufufu and now You thinking he's as cute as a Hamtaro HAHAHA omg i love these two guys too much!

I JUST HAD TO...
damn. whenever i enter my blog i just cannot stop staring at them. Especially Ruki... shit. this is so corrupted. HAHAHA.
WELL, NEW LAYOUT DARLINGS! although these are the only pics of them we have now and it's not that good and so freaking small, i still can't help it.
you know it's almost 2am... and i've got school tmr. i'm supposed to reach at 8am. But i just... couldn't help it. BAHAHA. So i just rushed this layout, in like an hour. from the headers to the codes and everything.
OH god. one more month. that's too long. how the hell was i so patient to wait for DIM?!
Ruki/Uruha PLEASE TAKE ME
p/s: and i still don't know how to take part in the goddamn lottery! AHHH! CHRISTMAS LIVE! ;_;
oh god. Ruki is so fucking hot there, i just cannot stop going on about it. He looks like a S&M GOD (yes i don't care what you think of me anymore just because i said that!)
Don't believe me? check out the new popup where they have a small preview of their new outfits. LOOK AT THE AMOUNT OF PVC, THE NAUGHTY RED GLOVES AND THE HAAAAT -dead from the flood of kinky smex- -noms ruki's fingers-
and i kind of knew smth like that will happen - where the members are all black in DIM, and ruki had the most white in DIM. then they kind of flip it to all white and ruki black. lol. so them.
AND! THANK GOD AOI'S HAIR, IT'S FINALLY GOOD AGAIN -NOMNOM- takes a bite of him ne cousin, good hairday again! must be a new hairdresser *laughs* Uruha looks kind of simple this time... but i still love him. He's so wonderful. he understands simplicity sometimes. hehe. and oh god, i love his hair, as always-nomnomnoms uruha- and kai's hair. official photo. enjoy people, the long, long hair! woooo.
the biggest news of this will be that this new single will be a movie theme song too! just like headache man, chizuru and without a trace. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, it's not some unknown horror movie theme song this time.
it's FAST AND FURIOUS. FAST AND FURIOUS!
these boys are getting BIG. and i mean REAL BIG. they are HUUUUUUUGE! i love them so much.
OH, there will be a Christmas Eve live too! FC LOTTERY HAS ALREADY STARTED. NOW, HOW THE HELL DO I TAKE PART IN THE LOTTERY?!
/edit: i just found pictures - but in black and white! ENJOY PEOPLE, AND ENJOY THE RUKI KINKINESS.

I AM SO TIRED!
OMG, IM DROWNING IN PAPER-struggles and coughs and gulps and gasps-
People who say uni is slackier than JC - you are so goddamn wrong! i am drowning in texts, coursepacks, readings, paper and paper and more paper! -comes a gush of paper "senbonzakura"-
Okay... maybe it's just because i choose to do subjects that require alot of reading *sigh* but i love these subjects... :(
Anyway, yeah i finally feel the rush. so why am i still procrastinating here? hmm. Gonna go do my history tutorial reading after this. AND OMFG my first mid-term test is in 2 weeks. HURHUR. i'm dead.
On a sidenote, i ordered DIM SCENE Tour Final Goods GASP. -faints- i hope i can wear everything HAHAHA if not you guys can start waiting for me to sell it. LOL.
but it's so fast huh. Can't believe i was actually part of this tour. And they're doing the final in like, 2 days. But my experience already felt like it's been so far back... you know, when you think of it, you get those nolstalgic feeling as if it was your childhood... lol.
