Memoirs of a Geisha

I recently watch Memoirs Of a Geisha for the second time and i feel very much in love with the movie so i decided to post some of my favourite quote from this movie, i hope you like them as much as i do.

"A story like mine should never be told. For my world is as forbidden as it is fragile. Without its mysteries it cannot survive. I certainly wasn't born to the life of a geisha. Like so much in my strange life, I was carried there by the current."

"Geisha needs an elegant wardrobe, just like an artists needs ink. If she is not properly dressed, than she is not a true geisha."

"Geisha are not courtesans. And we are not wives. We sell our skills, not our bodies. We create another secret world, a place only of beauty. The very word "geisha" means artist and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art."

"She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret."

"At the temple, there is a poem called "Loss" carved into the stone. It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You cannot read Loss, only feel it."

"We must not expect happiness. It is not something we deserve. When life goes well, it is a sudden gift; it cannot last forever."

"You cannot say to the sun, "More sun." Or to the rain, "Less rain." To a man, geisha can only be half a wife. We are the wives of nightfall. And yet, to learn kindness after so much unkindness, to understand that a little girl with more courage than she knew, would find her prayers were answered, can that not be called happiness? After all these are not the memoirs of an empress, nor of a queen. These are memoirs of another kind."

Blair & Chuck

BLAIR: “What if we need games? What if without them we are boring?

CHUCK: “We can never be boring.”

BLAIR: “You say that, but I know you. You’re Chuck Bass.”

CHUCK: “I’m not Chuck Bass, without you.”

"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them,
you're a mile away and you have their shoes."

Let Go - Imogen Heap / Frou Frou

Drink up, baby down
Mmm, are you in or are you out
Leave your things behind
'cause it's all going off without you
Excuse me, too busy you're writing your tragedy
These mishaps
You bubble wrap
When you've no idea what you're like

So let go, jump in
Oh well, whatcha waiting for
It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So let go, just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here
It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown

It gains the more it gives
And then it rises with the fall
So hand me that remote
Can't you see that all that stuff's a sideshow

Such boundless pleasure
We've no time for later now
You can't await your own arrival
You've 20 seconds to comply

So let go, jump in
Oh well, whatcha waiting for
It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So let go, just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here

It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown

Song Meaning:

This song tells about taking chances. Asking someone to have a courage and take a risk. Don't let the negative and downfall caught you up because currently you are blinded of what you are capable of. So take the chance, because usually when there's a breakdown or a tragedy, it's often cuase by love or something close to it and if feeling that of experiencing it, it's a beauty...

"Cause there's beauty in the breakdown", could also mean when people say 'whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger', just like the beauty. If there's no breaking then there's no healing, and if there's no healing then there's no learning. And if there's no learning then there's no struggle. But the struggle is a part of life....

Love, Save The Empty - Erin McCarley

Little girls don't know how to be sweet girls
Mama didn't teach me
Little boys, don't know how to treat little girls
Daddy didn't show me.

Face down, on top of your bed oh why
Did I give it up to you?
Is this how I shoot myself up high
Just high enough to get through?

Again, the false affection.
Again, we break down inside.

Love save the empty.
Love save the empty,
And save me.

Sad boy, you stare up at the sky
When no one's looking back at you.
You wear your every last disguise
You're flying, then you fall through

Again, the false attention
Again, you're breaking inside

Love save the empty
Love save the empty
Save me
Love save the empty
Love save the empty

Stars feel like knives
They tell us why we're fighting
Storm, wait outside
Oh, love, hold us together

Love, save the empty
Love, save the empty
Love, save the empty
Love, save the empty
Save me
And save me.

The song meaning :
the first verse is saying when we were younger we weren't taught how to respect the opposite sex, so we can't have a normal relationship, it's not fulfilling.
then the second verse is saying that the boy isn't happy with himself and always looking at others as if they are better than he is. So he pretends to be someone he isn't.
The chorus saying that love is the only thing that binds us and we need to cherish it and show it to everyone we can. It could save our life.

Untuk Sahabat.

Sahabat, kudengar bahwa engkau sedang diuji-Nya. Apa yang dapat kuperbuat selain hanya mengirimkan bait2 ayat ini. Pastilah sudah sering kau dengar berita tentang ujian yang akan menambah keimanan. Bagaimana dengan kabarmu hari ini? Apakah berita tentang hal itu juga dapat kau rasakan?

“Apakah manusia itu mengira bahwa mereka dibiarkan saja mengatakan; “Kami telah beriman,” sedangkan mereka tidak diuji? Dan sesungguhnya kami telah menguji orang-orang yang sebelum mereka, maka sesungguhnya Allah mengetahui orang-orang yang benar dan sesungguhnya Dia mengetahui orang-orang yang dusta.” -Surat Al-Ankabut ayat 2-3

Manusia mungkin sering bertanya, kenapa harus aku yang menjalani masalah berat ini? Kenapa aku tidak bisa seperti orang lain, yang selalu terlihat bahagia? Ketahuilah, sahabat, bahwa Allah Maha Mengetahui yang terbaik bagi dirimu dan orang lain.

“Boleh jadi kamu membenci sesuatu padahal ia amat baik bagimu, dan boleh jadi pula kamu menyukai sesuatu, padahal ia amat buruk bagimu, Allah mengetahui sedang kamu tidak mengetahui.” -Surat Al-Baqarah ayat 216

Manusia memang mudah dirundung keluh kesah, dan itu harus disadari datangnya dari syaithon. Sesungguhnya, bila hati ini penuh keyakinan bahwa Allah akan mengujinya sesuai kadar kemampuannya, maka hatinya akan tenang

Allah tidak membebani seseorang itu melainkan sesuai dengan kesanggupannya.” -Surat Al-Baqarah ayat 286

Percayalah sahabat, kalau kamu beriman, maka kamu memiliki derajat yang paling tinggi, bahkan dibandingkan manusia-manusia yang kamu pikir tidak sedang Allah uji, jika mereka tidak beriman. Untuk itu, kuatkan hatimu dalam menghadapi ujian ini, ya…

“Janganlah kamu bersikap lemah, dan janganlah pula kamu bersedih hati, padahal kamulah orang-orang yang paling tinggi derajatnya, jika kamu orang-orang yang beriman.” - Surat Al-Imran ayat 139

Caranya, agar kau kuat menghadapinya, bersabarlah. Dan bersabar itu tidak hanya cukup sekali, tapi terus menerus, tanpa akhir, hingga Allah akhirnya memenangkanmu atas ujian yang berat ini.

“Wahai orang-orang yang beriman! Bersabarlah kamu (menghadapi segala kesukaran dalam mengerjakan perkara-perkara yang berkebajikan) , dan kuatkanlah kesabaran kamu lebih daripada kesabaran musuh, di medan perjuangan), dan bersedialah (dengan kekuatan pertahanan di daerah-daerah sempadan) serta bertaqwalah kamu kepada Allah supaya, kamu berjaya (mencapai kemenangan).” -Surat Al-Imran ayat 200

Sudah banyak kita dengar bahwa sabar dan sholat adalah penolong kita dalam menghadapi berbagai ujian. Jadikanlah momen ujian kali ini pembukti apa yang telah Allah janjikan itu. Khusyuklah dalam shalat, dan rasakanlah nikmatnya ujian ini dengan kekhusyukan yang engkau dapatkan. Bahkan mungkin sulit engkau dapatkan jika engkau tidak diuji seperti ini.

“Dan mintalah pertolongan (kepada Allah) dengan jalan sabar dan mengerjakan sembahyang; dan sesungguhnya sembahyang itu amatlah berat kecuali kepada orang-orang yang khusyuk” -Surat Al-Baqarah ayat 45

Insya Allah… Apa-apa yang kamu lalui dengan sabar tadi, bukanlah hal yang sia-sia. Surga yang indah adalah hadiah tertinggi bagi orang-orang yang sabar dalam ujian.

“Sesungguhnya Allah telah membeli dari orang-orang mu’min, diri, harta mereka dengan memberikan syurga utk mereka… -Surat At-Taubah ayat 111

Untuk itu, Sahabat…. Hanya pada Allah sajalah hendaknya kita berharap.

“Cukuplah Allah bagiku, tidak ada Tuhan selain dariNya. Hanya kepadaNya aku bertawakkal.” -Surat At-Taubah ayat 129

Dan jangan pernah berputus asa dalam memohon rahmat-Nya.

“… ..dan janganlah kamu berputus asa dari rahmat Allah. Sesungguhnya tiada berputus asa dari rahmat Allah melainkan kaum yg kafir.” -Surat Yusuf ayat 12

Teriring sayang dan cinta untukumu, sahabat… Semoga Allah memuliakanmu dengan ujian ini. Amin…

Quote of The Day

You asked me if there's something i hide from you..

I wanted to tell him I was afraid he could never love me the way I wanted to be loved. I was afraid that maybe he didn't have the capacity to love anyone but himself. I was afraid that, given the chance, he'd break my heart again. But I cheated and just said 'I guess I was afraid.'
-Carrie Bradshaw

Sudahkah Anda Shalat?

Ditempa panas sang matahari
Ditengah ribuan kaki kaki
telanjang maupun beralas kaki
kutanggalkan ego ku
bersujud sejenak
beralaskan tanah terbuka.
bersyukur akan nikmat yang telah Kau beri,
Ya Allah..

Dengan ikhlas
kening mencium tanah
kepala tunduk

My Thoughts in Dual Language.

Aku berubah sana sini sekeras hati,
untuk jadi seseorang seperti yang kamu mau.
tapi inilah aku
lebih dan kurangnya
cuma untuk kamu.
Aku harap kamu bisa menerima.
Aku apa adanya.

Without flaws nor pretend
i promised i'd be the one that always be there
to catch you when u fall.

No matter how hard things are gonna get.
I'd be stronger,
and you know, more than anyone else does,
that i will be stronger,
so you can lean on me.

Because you need me, I'd be stronger.


Happiness : We rarely feel it. I would buy it, beg it, steal it, pay in coins of dripping blood for this one transcendent good.
- Amy Lowell

I Miss You.

I am tired, Beloved,
of chafing my heart against
the want of you;
of squeezing it into little inkdrops,
And posting it.

Maybe he''s doing the same thing as me,
maybe he wants so bad to call me,
but just won't because i haven't called him.

Then again,
maybe i shouldn't fill myself with false hope
that he might just be missing me like i'm missing him.

Late at night when all the world is sleeping,
I stay up and think of you.
and i wish on a star that somewhere,
you're thinking of me, too.

I miss the talks we used to have,
I miss the voice i used to hear,
I miss hearing your funny stories,
I miss your laugh and the way we laugh together.
And above all these,
I just missing you..

I often catch myself constantly wondering how you are,
sitting alone in my mind set so far,
reminiscing about your smile, voice and touch.

I am missing you, too much!
I know you've been busy,
I had things to do, too.
We haven't talked for sometime,
I wonder if everything's fine.
I had other stuff in my mind,
but i had just tell you this..

I miss you..

I've just sent an mms of the first picture to him. Without a tex, or even subject. I have no guts to do that :(
And he just replied back with 'Miss u too' message.
But i still have no courage to call and talk to him, eventhough i really miss his voice.

"The truth about the the truth: it hurts, so we lie".

"Lying is bad. or so we are told constantly from birth. honesty is the best policy. the truth shall set you free, I chopped down the cherry tree, whatever. the fact is, lying is a necessity. we lie to ourselves cause the truth, the truth freakin' hurts, no matter how hard we try to ignore or deny it. eventually the lies fall away, whether we like it or not. but here's the truth about the truth, it hurts. so we lie" - Grey's Anatomy.

The above, taken from Grey's Anatomy, is probably the truest form of lying. It's so true. We always have been taught that we are to tell the truth because its:

A) moral,

B) honest, and

C) the truth is always the best.

And as much as I do believe telling the truth is always the best way to go, why is lying easier?

People lie everyday. It may be a small fib to a enormous lie. Why do we deny when confronted about it. Are we not happy with ourselves to just tell the truth? Maybe it's because we are ashamed. I'm not sure.

I like to tell the truth. Basically because it keeps me out of any kind of trouble. But I fail. I lie. It may be small things like "Oh yeah, I do like your shoes" or sometimes bigger things.

We all claim that we lie to "protect" someone else. What a crock. We lie to protect ourselves. How sad? Not necessarily.

Life presents too many obstacles and too many difficulties to not lie. Lying can sometimes be helpful. Lying may buy you more time. Lying may be the only solution.
If you were to avoid all liars, you would be alone. You would have no one to talk to. Everyone lies. It's something we need to accept. Although, do not judge anyone on their lying. They can't help it. They are only human. I'm also, only human.

Hasanuddin Choir.

In the past few weeks i've been busy taking vocal training in my choir. Paduan Suara Mahasiswa (PSM) in Hasanudin University. According to schedule, we're going to attend a Choir Competition in Bandung. And i really hope that we're gonna win in this competition.

Paduan Suara Mahasiswa (PSM) Universitas Hasanuddin berada di posisi dua atau meraih perak di ajang World Choir Games, Austria. Lomba paduan suara mahasiswa ini diikuti 2.800 kelompok paduan suara dari 34 negara. Tampil meyakinkan di Hall Graz, Austria, PSM Unhas berhasil mengalahkan mantan juara dunia tahun lalu, Kroasia, yang kini malah di posisi ketiga. Korea tampil sebagai juara satu. Unhas lolos ke babak final setelah meraih Golden Diploma atau angka tertinggi untuk jenis lagu rakyat (folklore). Unhas berhasil memperbaiki prestasinya sebab pada ajang serupa di Xiamen, Cina, Unhas, tidak berhasil masuk babak final. Menurut Manajer Tim Pemberangkatan PSM Unhas, Haris Hody, tim PSM Unhas akan berangkat ke Jerman, Belanda, dan Perancis untuk memenuhi undangan duta besar negara sahabat untuk mempromosikan budaya Sulawesi Selatan. Tim menyampaikan ucapan terima kasih atas dukungan seluruh pihak sehingga PSM Unhas meraih prestasi tersebut.

(Tribun timur, Makassar)

So far, PSM unhas has succeded in winning a lot of competition, national and even international competitiopn soch as World Choir Games, Asian Choir Games, and recently won 3rd place on World Choir Competition in Gyeong Nam, South Korea.

Bravo, PSM Unhas! Because nobody can sing like us!:)

Love and Pray.

So here's to the man i love..
i pray for you, in every step that you take. May Allah always bless and protect you, giving you health, kindness, and honesty that u can use wisely for the people that needed.
I pray for you, for a strength and courage to help others.
I trust you, to lead me.

We've been together for almost two years now. We've known each other's fault and weaknesses. And we accept it. I Love you, for the man u wants to be, and for the man you almost is.

"No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater. The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that's the key. It's like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot."
