Poem: A Thousand Flamingos

A Thousand Flamingos

This life has been a landscape of pain

and still,

flowers bloom in it.

Sanober Khan

Hello everyone around the world! I have not tired yet of imitating Nanaki.

Today I want to share gorgeous poem by Sanober Khan. Actually I just came across it when i read one of beautiful and heart-wrenching-but-must-read novel called Falling Dreams of Fang Hua. You can find it on Volaretranslation.

This novel has a sad plot and very beautiful poems inserted here and there. So much portray of beautiful things! From this translator too I knew Ephemeral Beauty Song, which is a soundtrack to the Dream of The Red Chamber, that is very beautiful. Good day!

It’s day +2 since the airing of drama Goblin’s episode. And I have just finished watching it. It’s such a great drama. Moreover it’s been a while I didn’t try to jump through episode in watching a K-drama. I watched these first two episode with much patience and interest, resulting of being wrapped in a bubbly feeling. It’s like being sent back to the little girl’s mind on fairytale because it’s such a fairytale wrapped in a drama. And no doubt, I chose it well, since I didn’t really like Kim Eun Sook’s prior drama, except Secret Garden. And in this drama, not only an OTP but two!

The drama starring Gong Yoo as Goblin. Lee Dong Wook as amnesiac grimreaper. Kim Go Eun as can I say, innocent and muddled high school girl(?) is said to be  born as Goblin’s bride. Yoo In Na as Sunny, a beautiful-and-hot-and-not-unemployed that has something going on with amnesiac grimreaper. And last but not least, Seung Jae played as the normal human that involved with them.

The drama conflict is begun from approximately 300 years or so back in time, where Gong Yoo is a human and died, gaining an immortality through being a Goblin, in which he died in a tragic way. And tired from living in immortality wanted to rest in peace. Apparently, in doing so he will need the Goblin’s bride to pull the sword so that he can die. Ah, such a melancholy from the start. You need to meet your lover to die, such a way to cease exist. And since from then he searched long and far the much intended bride to pull the sword. And fate brought him to met Kim Go Eun, innocent and muddled girl, which can see spirits, with flavor of being an orphan and living with cruel aunt, geez, tragic as always, this writer. Up to here, fate one again brought Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook to live as owner and tenant. It’s giving a nice break from the melancholy, with the supernatural being closed in on a house, of course, it’s because of Seung Jae. Such a bromance.

From my point of view, although Kim Go Eun is not qualified being a Goblin’s bride for now, she and Gong Yoo is (already) having a mutual attraction. Please don’t mind the high school girl role, since Gong Yoo isn’t an ahjussi, but an ancestor being in this drama. While Gong Yoo is brooding, he as a great god, can make the whole city to get a downpour with lightning flashing. Wow, such a mood could affect weather!

That’s the main OTP. For second OTP, Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na part isn’t really got revealed yet. I guess we will need to wait for this Friday to come.

Another one I liked from this drama, is the video and OST. For the video editing, it’s superb with landscape, flashing scene coming here and there. It’s beautiful! I liked the insert song, though I don’t know much, and importantly ending soundtrack Stay With Me which is performed by Chanyeol EXO and PUNCH, such melancholy indeed.

Then, happy watching!

J-dorama Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu

Hello everyone around the world, it’s Greenleaf.

Well, I got carried away with those greetings because of Nanaki. Hilarious character from Lightning Empress Nanaki currently is being translated by Hecate. I have not had any light novel that’s being very entertaining and refreshing. Well if you’re interested head over there and read, it’s a refreshing story, really.

Okay, today I want to share about this amazing drama. I have not been watching Japanese drama these days, because there was too much politics and serious genre which is too much for my poor brain. I don’t want to think when I watch a drama, seriously, I’m sorry. Lol.

Well, here, I guess I got pulled in by this j-drama with lighthearted genre, rom-com like drama, Nigeru wa Haji da ga Yaku ni Tatsu. It’s still airing for now though, in which I wrote this post. Well this drama is I seriously recommend for romance drama hunter, especially for j-drama rom-com maniac.

This drama depicted about how one is being unemployed wanted to get job and the struggle to find love at the same time.  Apparently the male lead is, being a self-proclaimed pro bachelor which is lasted for 35 years long, being difficult to understand. And much being, it’s a programmer! Yes I have a thing about programmer, lol. The female lead, which is played by the beautiful Aragaki Yui, is a blunt and cheerful person. The male lead is played by Gen Hoshino is a programmer and a serious person. Well, since in this drama Mikuri Moriyama (Aragaki Yui), is an unemployed and have no money or house in the city so she proposed to work as housewife in Hiramasa Tsuzaki (Gen Hoshino) ’s home since her parents is moving to Chiba, I guess a suburb area. Hiramasa is a programmer which doesn’t like his house in a mess and likely he liked it neat, in order and systematic and he doesn’t want to lose his latest housekeeper, Mikuri. And in the lieu of Mikuri they agreed to live together with normal marriage registration but not really married, since Mikuri is just a housekeeper in reality. But the reality and the agreement is blurred into gray zone until the fall for each other.

And here the romance is quite good in plot development, there’s the contract in the seemingly “marriage” which is like an invisible wall between them. Moreover, Hiramasa’s low self-esteem is making it hard for the blunt and cheerful Mikuri to advance forward, although they are feeling for each other, but it’s progressed little by little, yes, a slow romance. Aaaand, there’s of course a love rival! An ikemen one! Fighting Hiramasa! There’s another characters, which is hilarious, like Mikuri’s aunt that have not married yet until she finally realized that she is stepping into 50 soon. And another is Numata-san that likely to be sharp but always misunderstood things, and the Hino family, which is always got a fever when he is going to visit Hiramasa’s.

There’s a drama and movie version of this novel called Love 020. The movie is starred by Jing Boran and Angelababy. Aaaaaand….the drama is starred by Yang Yang and Zheng Shuang. Well, the drama is sooo melting, quite novel-like which is great! Just some plot being twisted here and there to give some flavor.

The Da shen character, Xiao Nai played by Yang yang is quite brain-paralysing LOL. I’m dreaming here and there because the drama. I recommend you, whoever loves romance and have no problem watching Chinese drama to open your browser and go surf the title! I found some episodes being subbed, english subbed, by a website called hdfree.nu. Just browse the title and you can watch as well as download! Enjoy!

How to Download MP3 on Tumblr

Ah, hello! At last I can edit this unfinished post..#wipesweats

anyway, sometime I found some mp3 player which played nice songs on Tumblr. And there was no download icon/button anywhere. So I got this amazing trick from some blogger ( I’m sorry, my memory isn’t great).

You just need to open the Tumblr page. Here I’m downloading from Chinese song in Tumblr.

2

There’s no download button so right-click the mp3-player.And select and click This Frame, because the player is more like frame which you could select to Open Frame in New Tab. It will open this view.

3

Play the audio so when you inspect it, the link to audio will be available. Right-click and select inspect element.  There will be some HTML codes in inspector.Find this audio tag <audio>…</audio>

4

There, in the audio tag is link to audio source. Just right click and Open in New Tab, it will redirect to player which is of course, right-click and Save Audio as. And done!

5

In case, you cannot find where the links could be, then use the inspector and choose Console – JS (JavaScript). Since the player is loaded with JavaScript then you will find a link to the mp3 storage.

There will be link below the inspector if the audio is played. There’s that the tricks! Good day!
