Looks: Neutral Fall + Indonesian Week 2009

HAPPY WEEKEND, MINNA-SAN!

what's your plan for this lovely weekend?

i'm planning to meet Nanzy and Elrica today to just have a chit-chat *aka GOSSIP* LOL

i feel soooo bad. like almost a year ago i asked Nanzy to do a tutorial on a look with yellow and orange colors on it. she did it and it was really pretty! i always wanted to try the look but never came up with any! gggrrr to myself! so these past 2 days, i've been trying to do the look but the first attempt was an EPIC FAIL LOL. 

(this was what Nanzy came up with. PRETTY, right?) <3

so yesterday i tried again with the look and this was what i came up with.


well i still A LOT to learn about blending and stuffs but i'm happily learning lol.

all the e/s colors are from the palette Nanzy gave me here




well hope you guys enjoy my attempt =)

so yesterday, Indonesian Week 2009 was held in my previous campus.
for all who haven't known, i got my undergraduate degree from Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in Beppu, Japan
i went to the same university with Nanzy and we were roommates with 1 other Indonesian girl, Icha.

so every year, our campus holds MULTICULTURAL WEEKS.
not all countries have their own weeks tho.
every year we have Indonesian Week (it was Indonesian/Malaysian Week back then), Thai Week, Korean Week, Chinese Week, Vietnamese Week, Japanese Week, and sometimes we do have Spanish Week, Indian Week, etc.

these weeks are based on languages courses available in the campus for all foreigner students who want to study each language (Indonesian, Thai, Vietname, etc)

basically,
in each week, everyone can perform ANYTHING to represent his/her country. they have 1 full week to introduce each culture such as traditional dances and songs, food, traditional plays, amazing decorations, etc.
usually monday is for the opening and friday is the GRAND SHOW.

for Indonesian Week, the committee is formed 1 year before the grand show to prepare EVERYTHING.
and the practices and rehearsals are done app. 2 months before.

and we usually entertain the audiences with unique theme for each year.

this year, they came up with kinda like TITANIC theme in a simpler way (an old lady tells her story falling in love with a guy when she was young and he was taken away from her). well, not really titanic tho lol. i watched it on youtube last night (yes, somebody actually uploaded the grand show already. ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU, KONDO-SAN!)

so here's one of the performances last night. hope you enjoy :)

have a lovely weekend, guys!


EDIT: the committees are Indonesians but the performers come from all around the world :)
