愛してる Post : 「Shangri-la 」 Live ~ Oita …. (Another me, yasu, Niki and James )

Do you know how  many i am sorry i said today ….?

I have no idea, but surely it was a lot of sorry for one today.

But thank God, i still able to finished this week whole long Moanday and his other mean brothers Tuesday and Wednesday, even i had to be the stupid one who missed to see one zero behind on that price tag.

The correct price is USD 33,000 but in my eyes it was  USD 3,300.

Damn, i must be blinded eh …


yasu    :    go buy a new glasses …
noi       :    i have one …
yasu    :    then use it …
noi       :    do you know what i said when they said Are you blind .. ? to me …
yasu    :    what …
noi        :    i said  ….

yes, i must be blind …

to missed that one zero behind from 33,000 to only 3,300. What a shame on me.

I know i have a pair of blurry eyes, and just like how i refused to use a hearing-aid for one of my ear because i believe it will make me look stupid, i also never forced myself to use my glasses everyday

and that’s why i never mind about HQ or LQ for video or mp3 because to me, they are the same

so in this case, i don’t blame my eyes

I blamed myself and this blown away mind to somewhere that i myself have no idea where. I dunno what was on my mind at that time, but surely not 100% on that matter we were talk about on my meeting today.

It was a total chaos and indeed it will make me loose some of my points in Comissioner Vijay‘s eyes.

yes, points eh …

I know i used to say how careless i am bout any points given on my works daily since the one and only points i care about was only points that CDJapan gave me. But now i changed.

yes again, i am so CHANGEABLE … !!!

Let’s just say from now on i do care about all points that i’ve earned and just like how Niki counting how many ponts did his rival James took point on tournaments during his time in hospital, now i do count my points.

And i don’t care if people may think me as a point bitch now, it’s fine as long as it is still on the LINE,  i will do that. I still know where is the LINE, my limit and time where i have to stop tho.

This Niki and James i am talking about is The Legendary F1 World Champion Niki Lauda and James Blunt


yeah, recently i just re-watch Ron Howard’s Rush (2013), a brilliant movie about them again.

i re-watched it again about 6 times aand on the 7th time, rather than watching,  i became more listening to that movie and start to talk following what the character say.

Ha ha, yeah that’s what happen when i watch one movie too much. Maybe some of you have the same thing with me, when you tend to talk to the telly as what the movie character said and then laughed to yourself like an idiot.

Me to movie is always like a dry spons to a bucket full of water.

What i am sayin is when i watch a movie for the 1st time, i tend to be annoying. You know that kind of annoying audience on cinema ne, the one who keep talking during the movie including calling the character name or sayin

oh noooo …. !!!

complete with an idiot act when there’s something that i think totally wrong or doesn’t make any sense,

but on my 2nd time watching, i usually be a silent audience and start to change myself into a dry spons ready to take, try to find and remember everything i see and listening.

and of course i don’t do that to all movies i watch ne.

that kind of act is only for movies that really2 good and captured my eyes and heart at the first time i watch it. For sexample Saving Private Ryan, The Avengers, Pride and Prejudice …. and this movie Rush (2013)


If you know Ron Howard‘s movies,  you must know how this movie will be.

So this movie is about  ….


yasu     :     hey, can you do your homework first …?
noi        :     ah ya, but this movie is all over my mind now  ….
yasu     :     keep the movie talk later
noi        :     as you say then …

next is for ….

~    「Shangri-la 」 Live ~  Oita

Project 『Shangri-la 』 landed on Kyushu district, and this time is Oita Prefecture.  After the 「Shangri-la Meeting 」 on the previous day, 「Shangri-la 」Live was held at Beacon Plaza Philharmonia Hall, Beppu City ~ Oita on April 2nd, 2014.

Geez, it was 6 month ago ….  !!!


yasu     :     it’s too late, noi_chan
noi        :     it is a very late post ですよ …!!
yasu     :     why you are so slow ..
noi        :     because i am Capt. Slow now …

and also talking about 「Shangri-la Meeting」, we already know if yasu‘s mother is from Oita. So they were also visiting some relatives, and somehow before live yasu was pretty nervous than usual.

#  The Local Gourmet corner

These local gourmet of Oita that familiar to yasu were waiting on the venue such a nice line-up ..

~   Fried shrimp,
~  Green salad,
~   Rice,
~  Tai meshi/Sea Bream rice,

A very healthy and easy dish to make, a cleaned fish with scales removed and simmered in a pot with rice, ginger and dashi stock. Well, even they say it is  a simple and easy dish to make,

still i am not gonna try to make it.

because i am sure it is not that simple as they say on internet or cooking show on telly. Yes, i do love to see cooking show on telly, but not to try it.

I even remember when my telly cable open all their channel free for a whole month for their whatsoever promo, Asian Food Channel risen up my apetite to the highest level.

Thank God that promo is over ne.

So try to make a dish based on internet?  why would i ….


yasu     :    because you can’t make it …
noi        :    だれ、  僕  。。。。 ?
yasu     :    stop sayin 「僕」  !
noi        :    but it’s fun to say ne, and   …..
yasu     :    you are not a boy, aren’t you …
noi        :    but most people who only know me by name think i am a boy …
yasu     :    ええ、本当に?

Well, It is not that i can’t cook, of course i can.

Thanks to the almost 4 years i spent stayed in my relative’s house during my college time. I spent every morning and night do nothing but cooking, cleaning, teaching and many other domestic things.

so yeah, there’s a time in my life when i was so domestic …

I am talking about the time when i only worried about what is happen at home, spent my time at class wondering is everything OK at home? is rain gonna fall today, since i left my laundry outside, are the boys OK at school,  and what’s for dinner tonight ….

And now, i never do that anymore because i don’t have to. I have a control freak and drama queen mother who never let me to do anything, but working at day and then dine together at night.

back to the topic, next line-up is …

~  yasu’s fave no. 1  :   pikcles
~  yasu’s fave no. 2  :   natto …

aaand …

Speaking of Oita,


Fried Chicken ….. !!!

everyone’s fave dish and yasu‘s ne, since i read a lot about how he loves Fried Chicken

After meal,

continued with a relaxed and full of smile talks and reading manga and they ( read :  【TEAM Acid Black Cherry】) also gave us a rare scene to see in the dressing room.

Yes, i am talking about this yasu shaving scene …


Indeed, it is a rarely scene eh, …

Because i found it is very hard to imagine yasu‘ shaving before seeing that picture above. Even i know the fact if he is a man and no matter how pretty and kawaii they look, a man do shaving ne.

People do say my imagination is wide, but imagine yasu‘ shaving is …

totally beyond all my fangirl imaginations … !!!


yasu     :     you already posted about it,  noi_chan ….
noi        :      eeh, did i …?
yasu     :     don’t you check ..
noi        :     hello, i am the Inspector ne, so i do not checking …
yasu     :     yeah right ….

And then

in the dressing room a staff gave a summary booklet of Kyushu‘s each prefecture from homemade delicacies, tourist destinations, dialect, else and then

ready to go Live  … !!!!


next is ….

#   The question selected on The Question Corner …

is …

The episode when you first made your own song …

and yasu”s answer is …

me too, it’s when i was in high school. I think it was on my 1st year of high school.

At that time there was MTR, a multiple recording device. Put the cassette, in four superimposed-record, it was possible, but i couldn’t do the instrument, i only put the main vocal.

I was think about put the song first, and then put the chorus after that (laugh).

Usually i put what i want, it takes the rhythm together and put the song at the end. I put the song first, so it will fit, the selfish (laugh). Somehow i was managed to composed on my own.

But i was worn out. I thought it was a difficult recording.

I say i made my first song, and it is the first but i guess if there were electronic organ in the house at the time of my elementary school, i had to play around with it.

then, let’s continue with …

~   RUSH (2013)


This movie is a biographical drama of 2 race car drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, their friendship and rivalry between them during 1976 Formula 1 motor racing season way to be a world champion.

Directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind)  with Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as Hunt and Daniel Bruhl (Good Bye Lenin) as Lauda.

In this movie, by leaving his hammer savely in Asgard and changed it into a Formula 1 car, Chris Hemsworth prove his ability to be another character other than what people know him as Thor and indeed, he did a good job

James Hunt and Niki Lauda started their rivalry from 1970 Formula 3 race in England when both their cars spint out and ended with Hunt as the winner. They both are a very different man.

On 1975, Niki Lauda joins Ferrari and wins his 1st championship, while James Hunt managed to join McLaren after assured them if he will do all they say to him including with sponsors.

Screen Shot 2013-09-28 at 2.49.09 PM

James Hunt , an English youngman that even tend to vomitt before every race, but he is the real daredevil. For him, that’s the point of sport. He married to a supermodel but ended with divorced.


While Niki Lauda is a cool Austrian, with a genius calculating technical  who relies on precision and perfectionist as well. He meet Marlene, a socialite and date her.

This is my fave scene when Niki Lauda meet Marlene



something was wrong with their car, and then Marlene stopped a car of two man who is so excited to meet Niki Lauda. It’s a pleasure for them to give them a ride with one condition,

Niki is the one who drive

Inside car, the car owner is so happy about the  Formula 1 driver Niki Lauda drives his car. But Marlene who have no idea if Niki is a famous Formula 1 driver even ask who is Niki and next dialouge is so lovely ….

the car owner   :   no one will believe if Niki Lauda is driving my car now
his friend          :    Niki lauda, Niki Lauda …. !!!
Marlene             :   can someone explain to me what is happeing here, who are you, should i know you?
the car owner   :   you don’t know him …?
Marlene             :   no  …
the car owner   :   he is Niki Lauda, Formula 1 driver and he just assigned with Ferrari
Marlene             :   him? impossible
the car owner   :   why …
Marlene             :   well, Formula 1 drivers, they have a long hair, sexy … anyway, look how they way he is driving like an old man
Niki                    :   there’s no need to drive fast, we’re not in the hurry and i am not being paid, so why would i drive fast?
Marlene             :   because i am asking you to
Niki                    :   and you always get what you want
Marlene             :   usually …

and what happened is Niki drive fast like a hell ….

OMG that’s so sweet, isn’t it …?


noi       :     nee, ya_san ….
yasu    :     Great, after a Fanboy now she wants  F1 Driver boyfriend …
noi       :     i didn’t say that …
yasu    :     you don’t have to …
noi       :     then go find me one ….

so Niki Lauda and Marlene,

they finally married in a private wedding and then he started to worries about the effect of his marriage for his racing career because for him

Happiness is your biggest enemy. It weakens you. Puts doubts in your mind. Suddenly you have something to lose …

As a perfectionist, Niki always sure there’s always 20% chance for him to dead in a race so if he is not gonna join a race if that chance is more than 20%.

Then at the German Grand Prix, Niki Lauda convinced the F1 comitee to cancel the race during the heavy rain and storm in Nürburgring, the longest and most dangerous racetrack in the world .

They voted, but no one voted to cancel the race because Hunt convinced the other if that’s just another reason from Niki to make an excuse to avoid a racing without loosing.

So he still join the race and as what he worried before, bad things happened.

On the half part of 3rd lap, a suspesion arm in Niki ‘s Ferrari breaks and sent brust the car into flame. Ended with Niki stuck about 2 minutes on 800 F degrees flame before they finally able to get him out of his car.

They took him to hospital with third-degrees burn to his face, head and some dangerous internal burns in his lungs.

He spent his recovering days in hospital while watching his rival James Hunt took all points in the tournament that he missed.

How many times i watch this movie, i still can’t stop myself to cry on the after surgery scene when he try to put a helmet on his injured head. He is totally in pain, even his wife asked him to stop.

But he said to his wife …

If you love me, then don’t say anything ….

Followed with another full of pain treatment to get what the burns left inside his lung, he also has to do a suction treatment where the doctor put a long pipe through his mouth into his lung and pump out the dirt left inside his lungs out.

It was the most painful treatment and he did that while watching Hunt racing on television and somehow it helped him a lot.

And against  all his doctors, Niki Lauda back to race after at the Italian Grand Prix only 49 days in hospital with his new face.

From all other racers there only James Hunt who said hello to Niki . Not only that, even during the press-con there’s a journalist who asked Niki about what his wife sayin when she look at his new face ..

Niki  was tryin to be nice,

by answering       :   sweetie, you don’t need a face to race. All you need is only your leg
but the journalist  :   i am serious now
Niki                      :   i am also serious and F**K you …!!!

Hunt, who feel responsible for what happened to him, say nothing but gave that journalist a lesson that he supposed to to forget.

On that race, Niki finished as fourth while Hunt fails to finish the race and all the audience were running to his car after the race is over.

They kinda celebrate the coming back of their hero .

The final season of 1976, a rain soaked Japanese Grand Prix. With Lauda‘s absence pulled Hunt into three points of him. But learning from his last accident in German, Niki Lauda return to the pits on the second lap and when his mechanics ask him

Is there something wrong with the car Niki?

he said …

No, nothing is wrong with the car. I quit …

He decided to stay with his wife Marlene rather than risk his life again on the track. Hunt finished the race and win the championship.

After that race, Hunt spent his life as a new World Champion with lots of party, fame, sex and drugs. While Lauda started to learn to flyin a private plane. He think it is good to help him more focus.

They meet again at a private airfield in Bologna where Hunt wants to go to his friend’s wedding party. Lauda suggested him to be more focus for the next season.

and this ending scene is the best scene of this movie, when he said  …


Stop thinking of it as a curse to have given an enemy in life, it can be a blessing too.

A wise man can learn more from his enemies than a fool from his friends.

and from that scene we can see how different they are, but at the same time they support each other in their own way. For Niki Lauda, James Hunt is one of few people in he respect.

James Hunt  is kinda person who feel enough with one world champion, nothing further to prove. He retired on 1979 and became a sport comentator on TV and died on 1993 at age 45.

I’d say, this movie is how a race movie should be. No offense to all you fanboys, but i’d say

rather than Fast and The Furious or any other race movie, RUSH a way more better movie to watch and learn about race.

And …

Daniel Bruhl did steal my attention at the beginning with his brilliant performance as Niki Lauda. He also on The Fifth Element with Benny ne,

i have that DVD but i haven’t watch it ….. !!! #BIGProblem


yasu      :     what ….
noi         :     do you think l i have to  re-watch again his movies  ….?
yasu      :     hee   …
noi         :      aah, you think so,   …
yasu      :     hey, i didn’t say anything  …

ah ya next is this …..

~ Whatsoever Update from me ….

this one is

5th Season 『 Shangri-la 』PHOTOBOOK : Kagawa


Enjoii …. !!!!

aaand ….

recently i also busy with this CD & DL Data Interview ne …..


indeed, yasu talk about a lot there. So yeah there’s so many interesting there.

As what they said there, at the beginning the interview is supposed to be about the upcoming  new single 「INCUBUS」, but because it is still in the recording process so they changed the interview theme into 4 parts.

Focus 1  :  Music Production Technic


Focus 2  :  Statement Collection (yasu’s)


Focus 3  :  What you feel


Focus 4  :  Summer 2014 Review …


i am still doing this, and if maybe some of you wanna read it please bear with me because  unlike the girly2 magazines,

it’s a long interview from CD&DL Data ne ….

But there’s some of my fave part and i remember i read yasu also said his opinion about this on other magazine. It’s about the different between man and woman about sayin 「I love you」 .

He said …

i rarely use 「I love you」 because I think 「I love you」 is not supposed to be expressed in words …..

ああ〜〜 なるほどね、やっさん 。。。

But as what he said man tend to think we don’t have to say it, they will find out. But on the other way, woman still think if sayin 「I Love you」 is very important.

I suppose woman need something to say ne ….


yasu    :   only something to say …
noi       :   well ….
yasu    :   really, especially you who wants anything….?
noi       :   of course followed with another thing to prove ne

Especially for a bit clueless and wants anything person like me,

i do need somebody to say that 「I love You」 if he is into me.

Yes, if you ask about this 5 or 6 years ago, i will say i’d rather see your act than hear you say 「I love You」to me, but not now.  Maybe because i am just too old to do some love guessing game like a teenage do and also i don’t have time to do it.

i am practically a direct person about this kind a thing now, so say it or leave it … !!!

And since i am one of the anti N.A.T.O (No Action Talk Only) person, of course it will followed with me demand another things to prove.  Yeah boys, girls are complicated ne. Even i hate to say it but sometimes ….

i am also complicated …


noi         :     yes, very complicated ….
yasu      :     a complicated Inspector, that’s not good noi_chan …
noi         :     ah ya, talking about Inspector Himura, do you know if some people do  think i am really a police
yasu      :    after that Charles Bronson post, マジで   …?
