The World of Ghibli Jakarta Exhibition

Excuse me while I’m fangirling. (Okay, I know I’m now ibu-ibu but nobody can stop me getting overly excited about Studio Ghibli. No one. Nothing. Seriously.) Hari Kamis kemarin saya menyempatkan diri datang ke pameran ‘The World of Ghibli Jakarta’. Pameran yang diadakan dari tanggal 10 Agustus sampai 17 September 2017 ini merupakan  salah satu rangkaian dari event The World of Ghibli yang juga mengadakan screening film-film Ghibli di kota-kota besar Indonesia. Silakan cek di link ini untuk keterangan resminya ya. Jujur, tadinya saya nggak terlalu menggebu-gebu datang ke sini. First of all, saya pikir, “Lah kan udah pernah ke museum aslinya.” Lalu di timeline saya hampir semua heboh foto bersama real-sized Totoro yang menggemaskan, tapi kok rasanya overhyped. Maklum lah, walaupun sekarang udah jadi ibu-ibu pada umumnya, dalam diri saya tetap tersisa jiwa snob / hipster / anti-mainstream (tsaelahhhhhhh~). Belum lagi banyak berita dan komentar yang bersliweran di timeline yang bilang kalau pamerannya belum siap 100%. Last but not least, lokasinya bukan di Bekasi. #LAH #digebukinOrangOrangTangSel Namun tiba-tiba saya kepikiran untuk ajak adik saya nge-date. Zakki …

Are We Collecting The Moments or Losing Them?

Taking pictures all the time turns you into an observer. It automatically takes you out of the moment… For our trip to Venice I wanted to be in the moment, with Jack. But, instead of kissing on the gondola, Jack took 48 pictures on the gondola… Instead of holding hands walking across Piazza San Marco, Jack took 72 pictures of Piazza San Marco. (Marion, ‘2 Days in Paris (2007)’) Taking thousands of photos nowadays, are we collecting the moments? Or are we actually losing them? Btw, I love this movie and definitely gave it 5 stars. It’s funny and smart and makes me think that maybe If I were given a chance to hang out and talk with Julie Delpy, we would like each other and could be good friends. I also think that it is actually the romantic comedy version of ‘Before Sunset’ (minus Ethan Hawke). You guys should watch it, if you haven’t.
