The Invisible Detective : The Faces of Evil

Hi there, it's been a while, hasn't it? :) 
Sorry for not being able to write these past months, I had been quite busy with stuffs and 9gag, haha. Ever wonder why I could write today? Of course because IT IS HOLIDAAY folks, haha :D

So today I'm gonna talk about a book I have just finished reading. It is a pocketbook entitled 'Invisible Detective' by Justin Richards. Only by seeing the title, you would surely certain that it's about detective. Well, you're just slightly wrong, because it's about detectives. It was published by a publisher in UK during 2004. So yes, it is not a new book, not for me either. My grandpa gave this book when I was in Junior High School, if I'm not mistaken. But as I stated in my first sentence, I have just finished it a moment ago. It is actually because I found it very hard to read. When I was in the Middle School, there were too many words I had never recognized before. For now, I still have several words I got to look up to know the meaning, but at least they were less than years ago. 

This book tells about a group of children named "Cannoniers" who set up a so called 'illusion' to make a famous detective, Brandon Lake, exists. The head of this teenagers' group is a boy, Art Drake. But what interesting about this book is that it does not only talk about The Cannoniers who existed in London early in 1937, it also tells about Arthur Drake, Art's grandson, who has the same detective instinct and capacity as his Grandpa. Each chapter of this book contains the series of events happened in 1937 and now -- probably in 2004, according to the release of this book, and in the late chapters, the story began to mix up, so that we could find out the link between what had happened in 1930s and the events in 2000s.

In general, I find the author is really good in creating the plot and how he separate the chapters. He made it so well that I would always want to know what will happen to both sides of Art and Arthur who actually face different situations and troubles. I also find it sort of cool to read it because it has several phrases which I believe are in British. Well, even though I think it is only a children's book, but it is way better than reading other english novels of mine such as High School Musical and Hannah Montana, which actually are only the book versions of the movies. Haha.

Anyway, change of topic, I have just gained my latest index, the Cost Accounting subject, and it pretty much ruined my GPA :( So sad but I just have to get through it and pray that other subjects will make it up, amiin :)

Alright then, goodnight and have a great holiday :D

Soundtracks of my life :)

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
If this were a Facebook status, I'd write "I'm feeling nostalgic". 
I am currently listening to old songs on my laptop; the songs I used to download as mp3s long before Spotify existed. Songs which I used to listen throughout the different stages of my life, each of those subconsciously linked to certain memories. On this post, I'll list them all in an orderly manner, just for fun. (Feels like it's been such a long time since I did something "just for fun", haha).
Here we go!
Junior High School
Start of Something New - High School Musical We Are One - Lion King Koko Dake No Hanshi - Prince of Tennis
I used to be obsessed with Lion King (don't think the obsession ceased up until now) and listened to its songs almost everyday after school. Since I did not have fast internet connection and couldn't download any mp3s at that time, I listened to the songs on my tape by playing the movie's VCD. I knew exactly at which minu…

Kagami Seira!!! (yeah, apparently dating Yamapi)

I wanna share some info about my brand-new IDOL!! hahahahaha!!! well, as you can read on the title, i said that she's apparently dating yamapi, right? well, maybe that's true, hahaha. it's an a bit out-dated news though. the rumor spreads widely about in september '09. because of that rumour, i searched for any info regarding their relationship. and of course, her personal info, hahaha. and then i saw one of her music vid, titled 'kaleidoscope'. in that vid she was so cute. and then i saw her other music vid titled 'first sight ft. ryohei', and i fell in love with that song! hahahaha! it took a quite long time for me to search for her mp3, and i ended up downloading her full single which includes 'super special' in it. and yesterday, i downloaded her first full-album titled 'celebration' and i don't regret it, hahaha. because her songs are cool. well, not all of them, but overall they're still cool. her voice is beautiful too, be…

Things That I am Grateful for in 2017

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.
Today marks the first day of 2018, thus 2017 had officially ended. 
I think it feels great to have a feeling of starting anew again, since 2017 was not that great for me. I personally think that I didn't accomplish that many things last year, and it really made me feel bitter; empty and unsatisfied. However, as life goes on, I need to move forward and turn the bitterness of 2017 into lessons, while still being grateful of the little things in 2017 that made me feel happy. So, here comes the list of what I am grateful for, and in the next post I will share the things that I wish I did differently in 2017.
I am grateful that I was engaged. Back in early April 2017, my boyfriend told me that he would like to talk to my dad and ask him if he can marry me. This did not come off as shocking to me because I knew that one day that time would come, but I did become a little bit emotional when I actually saw him talking earnestly to my parents about wanting to m…
