[Fanfiction] Summer Mistake Part 1

Title: Summer Mistake


Jun Hyosung (SECRET)

Park Bo Gum

Hyosung knew how dangerous and delicious summer could be. Even the word ‘summer’ had always sent her tingling sensation all over her body. And, mostly, all over her heart. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was the vibe that the sun carried around. Or maybe, summer’s air had too much love inside. But, whatever it was, Hyosung knew summer was when her heart had adventures.

She knew she wasn’t alone. There were people out there who loved summer and thought of summer highly. But, she wasn’t sure if any of them had the same curse like she did. Or, the same mistakes she kept doing.

For Hyosung, summer was equal to love and heart-break. If not worse, summer was the time for Hyosung to unleash the side she thought she didn’t have.

She had lost count on how many times she met guys and got her heart broken in summer. All she knew was, summer was the time when her heart would be stupidly excited over holidays before suddenly get thrown over reality.

This year, she didn’t miss the chance to make the same mistake. She hadn’t planned for another heartbreak. And yet, here she was, sobbing her eyes out when summer was over.

Hyosung had no idea when did things go wrong. All she knew was, she was all alone. Again.  With her heart scattered around her.

[Fanfiction] Separation

Title: Separation


Jun Hyosung (SECRET)

Tiffany Hwang (SNSD)

Keheningan malam terasa semakin menggigit selagi Hyosung melangkah keluar dari ruangannya. Lagi-lagi, ia sengaja berlatih sampai malam dan baru meninggalkan ruang latihan ketika sudah tidak ada orang yang tersisa di lantai satu, tempat ruang latihan berada.

Hyosung menghela nafas berat ketika pintu dibelakangnya tertutup. Ia tidak siap untuk pulang. Bukan. Bukannya tidak siap. Justru Hyosung merasa ia tidak ingin pulang. Dadanya terasa sesak ketika membayangkan perjalanan pulang dan rumahnya.  Tapi yang paling meresahkannya adalah, membayangkan sambutan dingin dari seseorang. Hyosung tau orang itu sudah pasti sedang menunggunya pulang dari latihan—aktivitas yang selalu dilakukannya akhir-akhir ini.

[Book Review] “Totto-chan: The Little Girl at The Window” by Tetsukoyanagi

Totto-chan: The Little Girl at The Window is a compilation of short stories from Tetsuko Kuroyanagi’s life experience on her education during the Word War II in Japan. The short stories were published as a book in 1981 and instantly became a bestseller. The book has been translated into several languages such as English, Indonesian, Arabic, Tagalog, etc. I first read this book when I was in the second year of Junior High School and ever since then, being critical towards the education system in Indonesia. Ever since reading this book, I have compared Indonesia’s education system and wondered if there is any way for Indonesia to implement this kind of education system for the early education. Especially knowing that the early education stage is the golden age for children.

[OPINION/MOVIE] The Liar and His Lover

The Liar and His Lover can be considered an old movie– released on Decemberr 14th, 2013– it is one of my favorite movie. The movie touched my feelings the first time I watched it and it still does everytime I play it.

The movie tells a story of a young couple which consist of Riko and Aki. The two are musicians who falls in love after a strange ecounter on a bridge after Aki’s break up from his popular singer girlfriend. However, Aki doesn’t know that Riko is a musician–or a singer to be exact– and therefore he tries his hardest to hide his identity from her. He is hoping his undiscovered identity will help him to have a normal relationship. Riko, admitting that she falls in love in first sight to Aki, is anxious to tell Aki that she loves to sing.

Hyosung looked around her and it hurt her to see the couples walking hand in hand. Her palms sweated from the heat and yet, it felt cold somehow. Inside, her heart ached for the love she had been longing for the last three years. No, it wasn’t a love just from anyone that she wanted. It was his love that she had been longing for.

She missed him. Three years and the feeling still didn’t go away. Hyosung hated herself for being this weak. Most importantly, to be forced to acknowledge how empty she was feeling with his disappearance.

His name was Jung Joon Young. And Hyosung was his.

[BOOK REVIEW] Ghostwritten By Isabel Wolfe

Your past is what makes you into you and it will always be a part of you.

That’s what I understood after finished reading Ghostwritten by Isabel Wolfe. It’s a wonderful book that took Indonesia’s history for one of the main characters’ life story. This is quite interesting, as Isabel decided to take the Second World War setting so far to the east and not in Europe or West as usual.

I bought the book for Rp 26.000,00  ( or 1.99 USD) in Periplus, it was during the mid-year sale and I just didn’t want to miss the chance to buy great books with great deals!

I have bad experiences with discount books. Usually, the contents are not as impressive as their synopsis and I’m too lured by the price. So, I didn’t have high expectation either for Ghostwritten, considering the price and my experiences.
