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!)

Please be happy~ Happy reading~

I just filed my scholarship application...

compare to other people's beautiful essay, I bet mine does not stand out at all.

I don't know how to many my essay attractive to readers, so I just make it very simple.

I learned to write in analytical style in my history class...

I know lots of people have faith in me, why do they think I 'm smart?

I'm just a slacker girl who let opportunities go, who is afraid of trying, who does not like...here

I regret my wrongdoings and wish I can set time back, but I can't, so I live up my mistake.

I'm still young right?

But...isnt this the most important year of my life?

A paper in front of me, and I dont know what to write about me.

sadness, is floating like a bubble inside my heart

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...

Not a great start...

Spring Break has begun,

and my computer crashed...

I think it is because I have been using it forever, sometimes all night, due to the essays and tests and chatting w/ my friends...

but yea, it crashed.

unfortunately, I cannot retrieve my stuff in C disk, because it won't open.

So everything got deleted.

This happened several times already, I urge myself to buy a laptop, but I'm too lazy to do research on it..

so I kept losing my photos and music and documents, sometimes drag my mother down the water..

But now, I feel so clean and refreshing!

After all, all the photos, music, documents is not some thing I must have.

If they got lost, it won't affect me that much.

So actually, lots of things in life is useless to us

We just cling onto them because they are our things.

But they are just, useless.

if they are gone, they are gone.

and I'm still alive,  eating, sleeping, still able to restart my computer, download new songs, save new photos.

And i start to realize that internet is really not a big deal, its a imaginary world crafted by some genius people.

We can just lost things on internet and "POOF", they are all gone.

I feel so unreliable..

What can we know about this era after 1000 years? What if computer and internet are to be extinct in 1000 years?

There are no written resources, or paintings, or sculpture to talk about our history.

Not like in the Renaissance era, or during the World War, when people spend years painting or writing to record the significant events and their idea.

So I suddenly feel lost, maybe I'm too sadistic today, but this idea just appears to me.

Now days even elementary school kids do text message, some kids walk alongside each other, they does not talk but text each other.

This is just pathetic to me.

I now become afraid of getting old, I will be kicked out of this technology world.

Maybe I should feel fortunate to be living in this era, advanced medical care, civil liberty, freedom, rights, no discrimination (just minor ).

But I do wish we can slow down a little, i wish people can take a break more often, they are losing their souls from all the working..

oh god this random blurb is quite long....
