Fushigi Yuugi (Mysterious Play)

Everyone who knows me would by now understand my insanity for cartoons/anime. Of all the cartoons/anime i've watched.. there's one that was, is and will forever be my favourite of all. Fushigi Yuugi. I first watched this anime some time in the end of 2001. It was shown on AXN, every evening at 7 pm, and repetition at 11 am the next morning. And i watched it everyday (the actual show AND the's a must.)Until i had to leave for KML sometime in March. That left me really devastated coz duh.. i was already "glued" to the anime, and it was somewhere around the climax-resolution part of the plot that i had to leave it for.. something that wasnt productive AT ALL.(yes, i HATEd KML.every. single. day i spent there. the only thing that i valued was my MEMORY n EXPERIENCE of being there..errr.anyways, this post isnt about KML. it's about my one and only favourite anime, Fushigi Yuugi.)

What is Fushigi Yuugi about? It's about Friendship. Love. It's about sacrifice. About the painful truth of life that we have to accept and deal with. It's about growing matured, never giving up our hope in something that we believe in.. :) It's..everything. I cant quite tell the whole story right here.. coz it'll take too much time (and space).. he2.. but here's a gist of the anime that i can share with you readers..

Miaka and Yui are best friends, living in our modern world. One day, they went into the "reserved documents" room in the library and found a book called "Universe of the Four Gods". The book, in which the setting's made in Ancient China, started with the phrase.. "..This is the story of a girl whose wish came true..." and Miaka and Yui were absorbed into the book itself, and experienced a life-turning journey and adventure. How can two good friends end up being enemies?

Cobalah Untuk Setia.. by Krisdayanti

Hmm..i know this' not the latest song..he2..i just listened to this song recently..and really2 like it.. :D

Apalah maumu kasih
Kaupilih diriku
Didalam hidupmu
Nyatanya kulihat kini
Tak bisa kau coba untuk setia

Sudah cukuplah sudah
Ku memberikan waktu
Kau selalu tak bisa
Mencoba untuk setia

Yang selalu kuinginkan
Yang selalu kunanti
Kau coba untuk mengerti
Apalah arti mencinta

Dan harus kau sadari
Bila ingin bersamaku
Jangan coba kau ingkari
Cobalah untuk setia..

Apalah maumu kasih
Kaupilih diriku
Didalam hidupmu
Nyatanya kulihat kini
Tak bisa kau coba untuk setia

Sudah cukuplah sudah
Ku memberikan waktu
Kau selalu tak bisa
Mencoba untuk setia

back to reff

Masihkah aku diinginkan
Masihkah aku di dambakan
Masih ada waktu untukmu
Bersamamu akankah kujalani hidup…

And i hope his wife Teri, be patient in enduring this moment of loss..hmm..and his children.. uwaa..!!why...!'s upseting!!! :'( here's an extract from The of the dailies in the country:

Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin killed by stingray
Staff correspondents

STEVE Irwin, arguably the most famous Australian, is dead after being struck in the chest by a stingray while filming a documentary on the Great Barrier Reef.

Paramedics from Cairns were rushed to treat the famed film-maker and environmentalist, but were unable to save him. Mr Irwin had a puncture wound to the left side of his chest and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Queensland Ambulance Service said a call was received about 11am (AEST) today and dispatched an emergency services helicopter to a boat on Batt Reef, off Port Douglas, with a doctor and paramedic on board.

Mr Irwin was best known for his television show The Crocodile Hunter and his work with native Australian wildlife. His wife, Terri, was hiking in the Tasmanian wilderness at the time of the incident. She was tracked down by police and informed of the tragedy.

Tributes streamed in from around the world today, with The New York Times and BBC websites among those that reported the news that the larger-than-life personality had died.

Fans were gathering at Australia Zoo, north of Brisbane, where they delivered floral tributes and gathered to remember the charismatic naturalist.

Federal MPs, including Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, sent their condolences while newspaper websites where flooded with emails saluting Mr Irwin.

Melbourne-born Mr Irwin - known worldwide as the Crocodile Hunter - is famous for his enthusiasm for wildlife and his catchcry "Crikey!".

The father of two's Crocodile Hunter program was first broadcast in 1992 and has been shown around the world on cable network Discovery.

N Qld map Thanks to his TV programs, Mr Irwin was perhaps the best-known Australian in the US. He also starred in movies and developed the Australia Zoo wildlife park, north of Brisbane, which was started by his parents Bob and Lyn Irwin.

The Irwins have two children: a daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin, 8, and a son, Robert (Bob) Clarence Irwin, three.

Mr Irwin had close links with Prime Minister John Howard and was a guest at The Lodge during a function for US President George W Bush in 2003.

"I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the sudden death of Steve Irwin today," Mr Howard said.

"Steve Irwin captured the imagination of Australia and the world through his television appearances as The Crocodile Hunter.

"He entertained millions of people with an unconventional style that helped him become a household name around the world."

Mr Irwin also championed many environmental projects. These included the Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation, and International Crocodile Rescue.

The food was indeed better than last year's.. i bought Nasi lemak with chicken curry for $8, that's rm24 just for nasi lemak dan kari ayam..but hey, I AM SATISFIED. (so dont tell me that i'm crazy to buy such expensive food, coz it's MY MONEY,MY TUMMY!!!!!i've bought wanton noodles for $13 a DONT U DARE criticize me on how i spend my money, coz it's MINE,not yours..what do YOU know about buying Asian food in Australia?!!!)..hmm..i'm so emotional rite now coz i'm still pissed off by the stupid mistake just now.. (u know, the finished blog, gone just like that..) damn. anyways, cut the story short (and FCUK you who dare to comment on my poor english. u're not an orang putih yourself. u're an ORANGUTAN!)..izan and i joined the other audience on the field..we sat on the grass and enjoyed the performances while eating our food.. *wink* this year's Mfest is different than last year's coz it's more happening, most probably coz of the weather.. previous years, the weather hadnt been friendly or helpful to the Mfest was always raining, and really2 windy during Mfest.but not this year..he2..what a great experience for our last Mfest in Sydney.. :)With the crowd..
Izan and i left Mfest around 1 pm, and spent the rest of the afternoon window shopping at QVB..(SES, Supre`, Perfume Shop-uuuu..!!Glow Pink's scent is sooooooooooo nice!!waaa..!!i really2 love it..!no more estee lauder!! it's gonna be Glow Pink now!hehe)..After spending almost two hours in QVB, we ended up at Pitt Street (Deja Vu of being in Brisbane few months back! the whole environment was exactly like what i experienced in Brisbane!the street, shops, stree performances, etc..!) .. Somehow later we ended up at Hyde Park.. heh..Izan had been telling me about this "garden"/"park" that she'd been to. It's a large park, etc..but she never mentioned the name of the park to me.If she'd mentioned it to me, i could've known what park she was talking about.. coz most of my "friends" had been there!he2!anyways, only when we were there and saw the sign that said "HYDE PARK" then only we know that we're "there". well, i didnt take pics there..just one in front of a Cathedral (cant remember what's the name)..and we took a rest for almost an hour sitting on the grass..such a great weather..we felt so relaxed at that time as we've been walking for 6 hours!hu2..!

We then got back to QVB, took the bus to Macquarie Uni (we went to the library first before going back home to surf the internet).. and got back around 6.20 pm..tired..but satisfied.. =D it was a really2 great day @ the city with izan.. :) hehe..i really2 had fun, and felt relaxed.. *wink* and i'm definitely gonna come back (for my GLow Pink!!!!)..hueheueu..!! =D =D
