Album: Exodus'04
Artist: Hikaru Utada
Year: 2004

When I first get my hands on Exodus'04, I was in love with it, and I am still is after 5 years. Exodus'04 is the highest selling foreign language album in Japan (over one million copies). Every song has its own vibe and feeling to them. Overall, I feel this album is very wicked, because there is a creepy feeling towards it. I recommend all the trakcs especially Devil Inside, Kremlin Dusk, and Exodus, however you might find "Easy Breezy" not as appealing, but thats the only song I dislike. The songs are heavily mixed with trance/experimental style. Recommend all of you to give this album a try. It will seriously bring you to another world..(Download links are provided but please delete the item within 24 hours, this will keep us away from getting into trouble~ and please support Hikki by purchasing the album if you like what you heard!)

I can't believe the school is over..

I started a music review blog in wordpress, the main purpose is to review most JPOP/KPOP/CPOP music.

It's pretty fun, since there are lots of people who review music in wordpress.

hey guys~
I'm back!

I was sick, really sick during the AP exam time and missed two weeks of school. When I came back this week it is the week of FINALS already!

You cannot imagine how much work and lecture I've missed...

Because I am still weak, working become difficult and overnight working to catch up works makes me weak again, but I will not miss any assignments.

My schedule have been extremely tight, tonight as I am writing this entry.
-I have to read 1984 and write responses and make my own questions.
-I have to also read Tale of Two Cities by tonight and take exam.
-20 SAT vocab words.
-One +700 words in depth essay on Frankenstein and Edward Sissorhands.
-Poetry terms review
-30 pages of AP European History readings.

these are due by tomorrow and it is 22:59PM already...

I also need to study AP Psychology because I am taking the test this Friday, but I wonder if I can even finish reading the study guide in two days...

I have to make up Chemistry and Physic works, also write extra credit paper to get more points...

There is just soo much going on, I feel so tired and mad at myself for being sick.

I did not get the summer program offer, so I decide to spend my summer working and preparing for SAT II and maybe retake ACT.

My goal is to successfully complete all my missions. After all by next Tuesday I will be free again and able to rest

After all, time is still moving, I will just need to catch up with him~

And next Tuesday will always come no matter what, so my temporarily suffering will end very soon.

I will update after Tuesday! And I will post graphics again.

Thank you and love you all!

a chance
I missed a chance.
I was going to do Link Crew in my senior year, but I was sick today and didn't turn in my application.

I emailed the teacher, and he said the deadline is today and I cannot turn it in on Monday.

I had a week to turn it in, so why didn't I?

I was hesitating because I don't have much confidence on guiding the Freshman.

But now I'm utterly regretted....I could've turn it in yesterday!!!!

Its just like my father said, "once you missed a chance, its gone forever."

Plus I broke my expensive V-MODA earbud, now I have to buy a new one..

new layout~

Isn't this graphic just adorable? But I wonder what I will really react if I saw two bugs coming out of a fruit in real life...surprised.gif <- yep I think I would do that face then yell...

Spring break goes by sooo fast! Its almost over already...and I have tons of homework left undone. Its always like this, stress is building up on me but I still choose to play computer instead of typing up essays or study...

What's really horrible is...my teacher give us homework during the break!! Just because  we are AP and honor student doesn't mean that we have nothing to do besides studying! Plus we might need even more rest than the regular class students...During the parent-teacher conference I pushed a cart full of food around the entire school to serve the teachers, it was sooo tiring! But I feel happy that lots of teacher appreciated our help. (even though some people just slacked off and eating all the food!)


After browsing all the shared templates, I finally found a desirable one to edit...I'm so tired of designing templates now, sometimes it works on FIREFOX, sometimes it only works on IE...so I came up with this very-easy-to-edit template~

And its all pink!

I'm not a pink person, as a girl I really prefer white or purple or blue, but for some reason I keep making those pink-ish things!


I really need to post some decorations...I've been slacking off, hating to organize my works..

I was going to post a template-edit tutorial, but I think lots of people like what they got already...and they will get confused by my crappy explanations - -.


Have you guys noticed "recommendation" section on the left corner of my blog? Yep I decide to do a weekly or monthly recommendation of my favorite music~ This time I reviewed Hikaru Utada's "EXODUS'04" because I was listening to it while writing the template codes! I really love all of her songs... Like I said the download link is provided, 100% free of virus, but its just for you to review not to own. Delete them within 24 hours and download from ITUNES if you like it!

I was thinking whether to recommend Exodus'04 or THIS IS THE ONE, because both of them are english album. But I really, does love Exodus much more...because THIS IS THE ONE, like Hikki said, she is trying to break the mainstream market this time, and I guess the reason why I love Hikki so much is because I love her originality, her experimental style which distinguishes her from rest of the artists. I still love This Is The One and she did a really good job making it mainstream type while putting her own touch to it, but it doesn't sound that unique anymore...on the other hand, Exodus'04 is just too amazing, the reason why it did not chart nor sold well is because of the small amount of promotion it had, it sold over a million in Japan because she is big in Japan...

Anyways...that's that for now..

Oh and I went to the dentist today to clean my teeth~ It feels refreshing after 4 months! But they said I got some cavities in my tooth! I guess I ate too much midnight snack these days...

idol's influence?
I guess I mentioned several times already that I am a big fan of Jpop diva Hikaru Utada.175

And this weird thing occurs  to me today!

You know how celebrities always does endorsements for clothing lines, jewelries, or makeup and cetra?

I did not understand that concept, because I don't know how a celeb will affect your choice on shopping.

Ok, I admit I am wrong...

I really love Hikaru Utada's Heart Station PV, it looks so dreamy and cool.


And the most important thing...I truly adore her headset!!!!!!!

It looks so crisp, especially with her short hairdo and her white outfit.

I just love the headset!!~~

And after some googling... I found the brand of the headset!

It's Audio Technica ATH-SQ5


It is famous for its stylish design and you can turn the earphone 90 degrees.

So I'm just absolutely in love with this headset and want to buy it! Even though the ratings are pretty average and Utada herself also states that she only bought this headset for its appearance..

And I also found her headset in Prisoner of love MV!


This one is not as fashionable as the Heart Station one, but its famous for the high quality sound it produced. (and Hikki is wearing this headset to test her music!)

Sony MDR 7506 Professional Large Diaphragm Headphone


Ahhhh...I don't know which one to choose! Why can't I get the look of the white headset and the quality of the Sony one??

I guess nothing is perfect...

I really want to cut my hair lately, its been such a pain.

My hair grow very very slow, and I'm trying to grow it long too see how I look...because I never had long hair before.. its coming to my chest now.

And guess what? Utada makes me want to cut my hair~~~

I love her short hair on Beautiful World/Kiss&Cry single cover...

and imagine myself having short hair and wear the white headset..

I'm such a fangirl!

I want to have the things my favorite idol has!

I guess thats why some people are idols...because they have originality and other commoners like me would copy it...
