As I was watching the ground from the 20th floor, a funny taste slipping between my teeth. I rubbed the front teeth with my tongue, trying to brush it off. “I should do something useful today.” Took a little glimpse towards my laptop but immediately shrugged it away. I unlocked my phone, opened Evernote and started writing this. I smelled… Read more →
Burning (2018): Movie Review and Spoiler Analysis
I’m on my Halloween marathon! So every October I only watch horror movies throughout the month, to celebrate Halloween. Burning (2018) is actually on my watch list for this month and I got the chance to watch it last week (Also, please follow me on Letterboxd! I just made an account there and keep logging as much as I could!).
Burning (2018) by Lee Chang-dong has selected so many times in international movie festival including Palme d’Or, Cannes Film Festival, and even nominated to represent South Korea for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ entry in 91st Academy Awards. It is a psychological horror, adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story ‘Barn Burning’. The movie is sensual, unsettling, puzzling, and crawls under your skin after days! There are a lot to discuss, a lot of layers to be peeled, and this movie easily becomes my favourite.Read more
Oleh-oleh pisau dari Jepang
Part 1. “Ma, aku mau kenalin mama ke seseorang.” Ujar anakku di siang hari itu tanpa diawali angin dan disambut hujan. Aku sudah tahu siapa maksudnya. Mungkin kali ini ia sudah mantap. Anak perempuanku, Arie, memang ku tahu cukup konservatif. Teman pria yang ia bawa ke rumah bisa dihitung jari. Aku tak pernah mengajarinya, apalagi soal urusan pertemanan dengan lawan… Read more →
Book Review: The Wife Between Us (2018) – The next Gone Girl?
I just finished ‘The Wife Between Us’. Meski judulnya seperti seolah seperti retaknya mahligai rumah tangga karena (((pelakor))), but this books offers more than that. Banyak yang kesel sama plot-twistnya buku ini, walaupun gue pribadi emang gak pengen terlalu anticipating. Soalnya penulisnya sendiri udah teasing dari awal: “assume nothing.”Read more
Book Review: Malice (1996) – Your guide to build a perfect crime
Decided to only buy imported novels on Kindle because it’s way cheaper, I don’t have to worry about shipping, and it saves spaces! Plus I can read it anywhere, both on my Kindle or Kindle on my Iphone. I’m not a die-hard paperback fans anyway. Convenient 👌Read more

Book Review: The Girl on the Train (2016) – How many knocks does it take to bring you down?
I Might Give Up On Skirt, Thanks to You Pervies
So yeah, it sucks to be a woman (note that I’m saying this in a very sarcastic tone). I guess I’m damned with this ‘hysteria’ that lies under my skin. It’s very hard to be one because society however ‘controls’ the way you talk, behave, dress, act, etc. If you don’t match the minimum requirements (I’m not saying ‘religious’, let’s… Read more →
Do Female Characters on Video Games Are ‘Harming’ Our Body Image?
As a child, I grew as a stay-at-home kid. Me and my older brother didn’t have any friends around the neigbourhood beside our school friends. So other than piano dan painting course, we spent most of the free time by reading books, comics, and playing video game. I hardly remember what was the first console we had in our home… Read more →
