One of a Kind!

Venue : Stadium Nasional, Bukit Jalil
Date : 22 June 2013
Time : 8pm 

It was such a glorious concert for me, different from what I experienced with the Big Bang concert previously. This time, it was just.. chilled and fun and not so stressful. I guess being in the rock pit that time was a little too much for me with my height. Despite this time around, it would have been so good to be nearer to him. But surprisingly, I don't have much to complain this time. I was technically quite far. The pictures make it obvious. But I could see him so much clearer than my iphone camera can. And he was so adorable. 

I know it is strange to describe GD that way, but he was. Totally. Adorable. And so was TaeYang. And I'm about to say something that's totally honest and may come off as mean, but.. I really super duper wished that TOP was the one there instead. *runsaway*

So this is one of the only clear picture I have of GD.. on the screen. Lol. Pathetic, I know. But I might have engraved his face in my head already, so its all good. I remember his hair, his face, his make which I found so amazing that it just doesn't smudge. I wish the makeup artists would tell me their secret. 

His dragon mic stand, his gold mic, his pretty DJ stand, his futuristic car that he came out in. The walking stick, the gorgeous throne that he sat on while he sand The XX. Oh so glorious. I'm not sure if the stage is built that way at every concert, hmm. Okay, I have to say. I am sooooo happy that he sang all those songs that he never got to, stuff like Obsession, This Love, She's Gone, Butterfly, What's Up, etc. 

Omg, I totally went crazy when he sang This Love. I was like mind blown, it was so awesome. I really cannot seem to say anything beyond this because I was so absorbed into the song. He sounds so good live, of course. And just to hear him rap... *faints*.

So, I also went with my new found concert buddy. :D Who's a bigger fan of Taeyang. Who went crazy with me when Taeyang came up. Who also knew how to sing the song that I didn't. *gasp* Taeyang did Where U At and Break It Down. Where U At was soooooo awesome, I was jumping off my seat. Then he does all this funny dancing that just makes me wanna squish him. Haha.

GD is literally the king of making faces at the camera. He was all cutesy and all everytime he looks at the camera, being all sexy and with those eyes just luring people in. If I had enough energy to scream at every face he makes, I would have lost my voice within the first hour of the concert. He was having so much fun moving around with his segway, playing around. Soooo cute. And of course, he went down towards the crowd towards the ending, where this picture... 

...was taken. Credits to the person who took it, I didn't take this picture. And I actually have no idea who to credit. She must have been the happiest person alive. I don't even know how she could keep calm enough to snap a non-blur picture.

Oh, I have to mention the dancers. Omg, I was actually flailing at them. They were so... good. Dayumm, High Tech. They were all dancing so beautifully, synchronized and all swag. And I actually squealed aloud at Don/Deuk. I'm not sure if both of them were there, cause all the dancers have the same hair. ._. Impossible to tell apart from far.

There was a lack of picture taking materials outside on the concert grounds. It was slightly disappointing and disheartening. Maybe it was because I reached quite late also, most of the concert goers were probably all inside already. The whole concert ground was too calm and quiet for a GD concert. There was only this "small" billboard outside with another one that had lights surrounding the same picture, in a smaller frame. 

And the merchandizes were all slightly disappointing too. Maybe the official merchandize shop closed by the time I got there. OMG. Maybe. And all they were selling were all the exact same One of a Kind shirts.

 Watching this whole concert, you can tell just how much planning went into it and how perfectly executed it was. There wasn't much delay at the start. And GD was also teasing us from behind the screen right before the concert started. And he spoke very fluently in English the whole time. 

Taeyang said something like "Malaysia people are as hot as the weather" HAHA. Then, GD mentioned about his second album, he was thanking "my brother's Big Bang" and then when he thanked Taeyang for guesting, Taeyang ran back out from the middle of the stage and went back in through the side. They also keep making the mistake of saying "Malay" instead of "Malaysia". They go like "I love you, Malay!". Someone needs to tell them. Lol. He made this most adorable video for the encore. Omg, I need to find it again. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this concert in a non-going crazy manner. It was like mellow and sweet and calm, like a good first date kind of feeling. Sometimes he makes me jump, sometimes he just puts this smile on my face, sometimes he makes me wanna grab him and put him in my pocket and bring him home to feed him rice or something.

I really didn't want to leave the concert ground after that. But the people were filling out like ants, I knew it was time. Oh, post concert depression. What do I do now.
I miss GD so much. VIP forever.

"And it feels like I am just too close to love you
So I'll be on my way
You gave me more that I can return
Yet there's so much that you deserve."

In the safety zone.

So, I went back to Ipoh for a couple of days for a planned trip in honor of...friendship? What. I don't know, I have no idea where I fit in there, but I am grateful just to be accepted.

And on the agenda was a trip to Gua Tempurung and Kellies' Castle and then to eat seafood at Tanjung Tualang. Lol, that was the shortest summary ever. Which was technically all we did. But of course, lots of camwhoring as we were accompanied by a DSLR. 

This is actually a somewhat unflattering picture of me where all you can see is my very dry naturally brown hair, my nostrils and how my legs are not so thin anymore, but I still love it.

 These are the kind of pictures that are worth remembering. It might be mean of me to say this, but it happens; I may not remember everyone's name in this picture ten years for now. But when I look at this picture again, I will be reminded of what a good time I had and how grateful that I have been given the chance to (somewhat) know them.

Also, that I was the only girl there.

 Haha, these jokers. Photobombed what could have been another of my pretty bridge pictures. I've recently discovered some kind of strange fondness towards bridges. Just so you know. 

I was too hot, blew them away. Heh.

 Gua Tempurung was... fun? Damp? Dark? Tiring? Humid? Quiet? Interesting? A little bit of all that. I haven't sweat so much in a long, long time. I remembered going into a cave before, also mistaking it for Gua Tempurung, maybe it was Gua Musang? Lol. I don't even remember. But caves just felt kind of familiar, like I just know what it feels like to be in one. What am I even saying? I would really have liked to go in further had the time allowed us to. Which just makes me question again, why was I the only girl? :/

Dinner was fulfilling, but eating with a whole bunch of hungry guys is like fighting a war. Lol. They eat a massive amount and at a scarily fast speed. Its like if I only focus on my own plate, by the time I look up, there'll be nothing left. Nevertheless, I ate more than I should have, more than I could. It was a good day. :) The long car rides, the terrible jokes, the good food, the excessive testosterone, the empty conversations, the funny people, the friendship I'm witnessing; so strange, so different from what I'm used to. 

The day ended with a good conversation and maybe some new friends. 

Besides that small trip, I also cut my hair. Haha. Its significantly different now, okay! Surprisingly, I like it more than I expected. So back to the other main purpose of me going back, was of course, to celebrate my mum's 45th birthday! Happy Birthday, mummy! XOXO

Mummy must have been hearing the kiyomi as well, with all the aegyo. Lol. Its so weird, years ago when she turned 40, it was a little scary, like she was getting old. But now she's turning 45, but I feel she's so young. I am, however, feeling much much older. Numbers are so unfair.

This was taken on Father's Day, while celebrating with the most fatherly person in my life and also, a newly acquired father figure. I have been getting strange feelings about him for the past month. Hmmm, strange. I shall not elaborate. Saying it aloud, or typing it, makes it all sound too real. 

This has been such a strange journey, suddenly it all feels like its ending too soon, but its actually been dragging on for too long. When my sem starts, I'll probably write a post about how much this past 6 months has changed me. Hmmm. I'm so unwilling to let this vacation end. But, at least there's something to (hopefully) look forward to. 

Fingers crossed.

It takes two hands to clap, 
now it seems is not the right time to clap. 
Right time, wrong person. 
Right person, wrong time. 
Wrong person, wrong time. 
Learning to not make a sound.
Stay in the safety zone.

“There is a time for everything, 
and a season for every activity under heaven: 
a time to be born and a time to die, 
a time to plant and a time to uproot, 
a time to kill and a time to heal, 
a time to tear down and a time to build, 
a time to weep and a time to laugh, 
a time to mourn and a time to dance, 
a time to scatter stones and 
a time to gather them, 
a time to embrace and a time to refrain, 
a time to search and a time to give up, 
a time to keep and a time to throw away, 
a time to tear and a time to mend, 
a time to be silent and a time to speak, 
a time to love and a time to hate, 
a time for war and a time for peace.
―Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

 "Will she come back? 
No one knows
I realize, yeah, 
it was only just a dream." 

There's really no update. I don't know what I'm doing in life. 
But hopefully, I'm on my way to the next chapter. 
Because this chapter is also getting a little too hard to handle. 

"If not for love,
Where would I be if not for love?
If not for grace,
Where would I be if not for grace?"

I will always have reason to praise.

Pretty girls.

"나쁜 건 넌데 왜 니가 나보다 더 아픈데?
아픈 건 난데 왜 니가 나보다 더 우는데?"

"You’re the bad one but why are you hurting more than me?
I’m the one who’s hurting but why are you crying more than me?"

--U Kiss, Dora Dora  

These have been my long time favorite lyrics. I think I've definitely posted them here before. But every time I hear them, it tugs at my heart strings and I am reminded what beauty words can bring.
So much truth, so much lies.
