No, I Don’t Regret Anything

I you remember Edith Piaf who brought us “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien“, then you would remember this song which is so powerful.

Ni le bien qu’on m’a fait, ni le mal tout ça m’est bien égal. C’est payé, balayé, oublié, je me fous du passé.

Yes, people always act differently toward us, no matter what kind of position we put ourself on it. We can’t wish that everyone have the same color. For that, I am gladly accept what past already brought upon me.

Over the Rainbow

My soul is melting, my days are shaking. If tommorow ever comes, I want to wake up on the land where no problem arises.

Someplace where there isn’t any trouble. Do you suppose there is such a place, Toto? There must be. It’s not a place you can get to by a boat, or a train. It’s far, far away. Behind the moon, beyond the rain….. (Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz. 1939).

If I Can’t Help

Last week it took me by surprised, I thought Elvis Presley was resurrect and sang a song. Indeed, it was a wonderful song, and it’s a nostalgic tunes along the way to my mind.

I wonder I would able to sing just as nice as that, but really, I can’t help – since I am not a singer. So here it is, “I can’t help falling in love with you“.

Picking Up A Hotel in Yogyakarta

Well, its been awhile since I wrote in English here. I think I shall write down something now. This afternoon I made a reservation for some standard rooms at Abadi Hotel Jogja, which only took about 2 minutes from Malioboro Street and about 10 minutes from The Sultan Palace by foots. I almost got lost, because, I were know it as “Mendut Hotel”, and it already changed its name three year ago – and I just know it today.

Oh, before you get any wrong idea, I should disclaim if this is not a paid article/review, my hands just aching to write something in English – but this is the only idea I got in my head.

Christmas and Lord of the Dance

This Christmas I almost has no spare time at all, a lot of things need to done and ready for next January, since I’ll say my good bye to Yogyakarta. But obviously, I got my holiday as well.

Since a ton of work, I found a song that give a good mood while finishing everything on the line of duty. A song wrote by Sidney Carter in 1967.
