Some of you may already know that I was born in Cirebon and had lived there until I graduated from high school. Every time I go home, I will never miss any chance to eat local delicacy and I tell you, saying Cirebon has a few local delicacies is an understatement.

One of the most famous local delicacy is Empal Gentong which is a kind of beef soup with a slight resemblance to curry. Empal is Indonesian sweet and spicy fried beef dish while gentong is javanese for clay pot. So empal gentong grammaticaly means empal cooked inside a clay pot.

The beef used in empal gentong is a mix of beef meat, intestines, tripes, lungs, fatty etc.. The soup is cooked with adding coconut milk, spices and a sprinkle of chopped kucai.

When you're looking for empal gentong, you will find a line of shops sell it and its sibling empal asem in Plered exactly in Battembat village. When you're googling for the best one, google will recommend you between H. Apud, Mang Darma or Amarta which is located almost next to each other in the main street of Plered.

After so many times re-thinking whether I want a 'real' copy of Utada Hikaru's comeback album -fantome- or not, finally I bought a copy a week ago from cdjapan. The last album I bought aside of Arashi's was Namie Amuro's album and it was like 3 or 4 years ago. This album is definitely deserved to join my collection and this song, Ore no kanojou, was easily climbing to the top of my playlist since my first time listening to the song. The title of the song itself means My girl.

>> ENGLISH
My girl is pretty good looking and she has good manner
She always minds her surrounding and popular within my circle

My girl would never get in the way of my work or hobby
She never asks every detail even when I come home late

The one next to you is me, but she's not me
It's hard for girl, I don't want you to think of me being troublesome

My girl would never bring back up things which we have talked before
A cool guy like me don't need to listen to every trivial thing

I've become tough inside to always play the role as your favorite strong girl but
How long do we have to continue being like this? A fox and raccoon's bewitching game

I want the courage to wish for the thing I really want
That's what I've been thinking about every time we embrace

I want to invite you much deeper than just my body
I want you to touch me much deeper than just my body

I want to invite someone to enter
Someone to find the real me
I want to invite someone to touch me inside
Eternity... Eternity...

I don't have any dream
I wish nothing more than the present
Before you know it, you'll get tired of a boring guy like me, right?

I want to invite you much deeper than just my body
I want you to touch me much deeper than just my body

I want to invite someone to enter
Someone to find the real me
I want to invite someone to touch me inside
Eternity... Eternity...
Inviting you

A song by Utada Hikaru in her comeback album, Fantôme, released in September 2016.
Song of the year for me.

>> ENGLISH
In the midst of a dream I awoke
Even if I close my eyes I can’t go back any more
The world that was so clear until a moment ago has become an illusion

When I was drenched in sweat you embraced me gently
You engraved so many first times in me

I stretch out my hand to a swaying new leaf
When my head is filled with memories about you
I wonder if my sadness will disappear
Tell me when…

At least I’m not alone today
I should be happy with that
I should be fine to continue living like this, but…

I’m running out of breath in this fight I can’t win
Memories of you are burned deep inside my body
If I forget them, I would disappear
Tell me, the correct way to bid a farewell

Somebody help me
My head is filled with memories about you
I want to ask you so many things right now
They’re just keep overflowing, overflowing

New buds are born
Months are changing
I want to convey this never changing feeling
Be free
Free yourself
The standing still shadow of the escorting people

My memories are suddenly
Violently grasp me and won’t let go
I love you, more and more
An endless midsummer shower

In the midst of a dream I awoke
Even if I close my eyes I can’t go back any more
The future you were there until a while ago
Visiting upon tomorrow

In this long endless rain
my thirst won’t be quenched

It's been awhile since the last time I translated song lyric and here I am, bring you my latest work (smirk).
The lyric is awfully honest yet it's so cute. The overflowing feeling is (certainly!) delivered gently through the honest words in the lyric. If you ever need the romaji lyric, you can scroll down this entry through the lj-cut.

>> ENGLISH
The chime is delaying in that warm sunny spot. I take a deep breath as the wind is gently brushing through my cheek
The roundabout tears and the tomorrow we named are an overlapping future-colored line
This Innocent feeling and the day when we were laughed so much, I hope I can treasure them
Through the disconnected moments we had, you gave me a lot of 'first time'
I'll connect it to you, it will reach you...

Your back as you were laughing in that twilight afterschool was secretly whispering through the inside of this untouched feeling
The you inside of me and the me inside of you are an entwined future-colored line
The smell of the town after the rain and the dream-like secret I hold dear in my heart
No matter how much I wanted to cry, I ended up smiling again
I hope I can jump into your heart faster than what I ever thought
I'll connect it to you, it will reach you...

More than every important person in your life, the one who stood right in front of you so that you wouldn't get hurt was me
Even if those words turn out to be exchanged for a goodbye, that's exactly what I feel

This innocent feeling and the day when we were laughed so much, I hope I can treasure them
I will become more like an adult, surpassing the me who wanted to become like you
I'll connect it to you, right now
It will reach you...

yesterday, maybe some you already know that there was a huge 8,5 richter earthquake struck my country . Up until now, I heard there have been another 3 earthquake following the first one, consecutively 8,1 Richter, 6 and the last one was 5.1 Richter. The first earthquake was occured yesterday at 3PM in NAD province, the same province where we had our biggest tsunami almost 8 years ago, in addition of that there was also an info that tsunami occured, but the height was only appr. 1 meter. Really hope there won't be any dead in this catastrophe. . Really hope everything is gonna be alright :(

When I was translating this song, I was really touched by the meaning. So I would like to present this song for all victims in the earthquake, really hope you can regain your happiness to keep moving forward, especially for at least month start from now, it would be another difficult time for all the victims.

>> ENGLISH
Come, our burned voices
come, our burned feelings

go cut the wind cut it cut the wind
our hearts have become our own swords now

There's nothing as prohibited as this spot, I know it already
Immediately I won't see it anymore with this surrendered eyes

one by one if we can grasp things we can do
this sweat this wound even this tear will become an endless dream

go cut the wind cut it cut the wind
cut it now with our very own won't rusted hearts
go clear up open up the path for this love
write in our mind that we can do that in this distance

when you know how does the chagrin of lose feels like
you won't wish to lose your courage to keep moving unreasonably

what is the reason behind our existence ?
while we're struggling while we're losing our road
we keep searching for the answer while keep going forward

go cut the wind cut it cut the wind
cut it with our very own unbreakable hearts
in order to keep this love till the very very end
we need to fight against the blocking wind with all of our power

come, our burned voices
come, our burned feelings

go cut the wind cut it cut the wind
cut it now with our very own rusted hearts
go clear up open up the path for this love
write in our mind that we can do that in this distance

faraway so faraway faraway
