{GAMES} The Keeper of Antiques: The Imaginary World

Someone has activated an artifact that takes people to a world filled with their wildest fantasies. When the Imaginary World starts taking over reality, it’s up to you to find and neutralize the artifact. Can you save the world in time?

Keeper of Antiques - The Imaginary World

I have to say, I become more and more love this series than Witches’ Legacy. With signature shades of color for visual, high quality graphics and cutscense, EleFun Games once again prove their skills and professionalism in HOPA industry.

Throughout the game, you’ll working by using Keeper’s device, which can be used to detect and neutralize artifacts. It’s cool addition into a gameplay that already entertaining. The hiddenobject didn’t feels repetitive and if you don’t feel like playing HOS, you can switch it to Mahjong. The puzzle also fun with medium level of challenge.

As much as I love the visual and gameplay, I wish they could add more twist or original ideas into their storyline. But overall, I enjoy the game and even want more from this series!

{GAMES} Adam Wolfe: Blood Eternity

Following his previous two cases, Adam begins to unravel a new mystery. This time, Adam comes to the aid of a painter that is besieged by a ghost. In his investigation, he learns more about the same cult and that it might be somehow connected to his missing sister. Through mortal danger, he reunites the painter with his departed wife but also attains a solid lead about his sister.
For the final case, Adam finds his sister, but also the leader of the cult which took her, leading to a confrontation. He narrowly avoids death and ends up in a strange world that seems to be completely morphed even though it resembles reality. Battling madness, he manages to find his way back to reality where he sees that he is about to get killed by the cultists and their powerful leader. Instead, his sister sacrifices time and Adam avoids danger but ends up trapped in a place outside of this world.

Adam Wolfe - Blood of Eternity

Is just me or the last two episode feels more intense than the previous two?

The storyline in Lady Painter and Zero Hour getting more tense, complex and thrilling. Wolfe’s goal become closer, and each step he takes, he get closer to the darkest side. I love how Mad Head Games write their story by connecting each chapter. It seems different cases, but everytime we complete it, we get a new clue.

Also, I love how Mad Head Games keep HOS in minimum. They focus on puzzle and adventure part, which is very challenging and entertaining. Mad Head Games, like their name, is really mad head. They put more effort into their puzzle since they didn’t work on HOS too much. Crafting puzzle are way more harder, IMO, because you have to think, “ Is this one suits the story?” and “Are we already create this in another game?”

I don’t think I need to say more about their graphic. Their visual is as amazing as their gameplay. We didn’t spent too much time by collecting inventory. It feels like we’re moving really, really fast.

Overall, I love this game. The open ending made me curious, where Adam will go after this? Will he just wait until his time over? Or there’s another adventure wait for him?

{GAMES} Edge of Reality: Lethal Prediction

Deadly “accidents” are happening all over Universe City, but they’re occurring more frequently, making the citizens question who or what is really behind them. Are they murders or something darker? When your father becomes the latest victim, it’s up to you to figure out what is causing this phenomenon. Can you prevent more tragedies before it’s too late?

Edge of Reality - Lethal Prediction

At first, I thought we’re going to have good-fight-evil cliche’, but turns out, this game deliver something unique in their storyline. The evil wasn’t just pure evil that wants to destroy everything, instead it was a good wise person who become evil and wants revenge. 4 Friends Game know how to keep their player seat patiently while revealing the truth.

 

But unfortunately, there’s nothing special with gameplay. It’s just like another standard HOPA gameplay where you collect inventory by completing HOS and mini-game. The only unique feature is magical bracelet that will allow you to release your soul from body and interact with magical artifact. It also can show you the true form of evil energy.

Luckily they serves us graphic with stellar quality. The visual, music, art style and animation are gorgeous and outstanding. It even gone better than previous game of Edge of Reality. I also want to applause the actor behind voice over. It sound lively and real!

Although there’s minor flaw, I’m totally enjoy this game. The bonus chapter offer extra story that might be little bit flat compared with main chapter. But it’s really worth your time, especially if you try to find something fun, entertaining with fantasy touch.

{JOURNAL} Weekend Madness Ep. 3: 5 Things I Wish I Could Do Every Weekend

Working from Monday to Saturday, sometimes Sunday, can be stressful. Mind will be full with work, no time for socializing, even for family. No me time, of course. Only work,work,work.

After transferred to another divison last year, I’m no longer have time for myself. I even don’t have time to have dinner with my father.

I work from Monday-Saturday, 09:00 AM until 06:00 PM, but most of time I work overtime. 12 hours at office. Sometime my boss want us to work on Sunday.

I know, it’s crazy.

When I was 18, I got my first part-time job. I went to college from Monday to Friday, then I worked on Saturday for 6 hours and Sunday was time for dance practice. It seems perfect schedule for me. Weekend should be for fun, entertaining day. You don’t have to spend lots of time shopping or travelling, having one relaxing day at home is enough. At least you keep yourself away from stress.

There’s time, I really, really wish I could do everything I want on weekend. But there’s 5 top things I wanna do, if I have time:

1. Play Game 

Keeper of Antiques - The Imaginary World

I think this one is obvious. I have more than 10 games (some of them are for youtube walkthrough) waiting me. Seriously. 1 game need 5-6 hour. Should I skip sleep, then?

 

2. Workout

Cassey, I miss you. I miss the 30 minutes watching your videos while I exercise. Seriously, after this, I need to get back on track.

 

3. Writing and Reading

Isn’t it obvious when you working too much, 6-7 days in a week, more than 8 hours, it will blocking your creative brain?

God, I miss my weekend-session writing. I miss going crazy with plot and read book that will inspire. Nowadays, I hardly have strength to do that.

 

4. Facial mask treatment

C360_2017-06-01-19-54-42-693

Because I work too much, I don’t have time to take care myself. No wonder acne starts appear on my face.

5. Eating out

C360_2017-06-11-13-15-38-578

One thing I love to do if I have time is eating out. I love sitting by myself, enjoying the meal while writing a journal. Unfortunately, I don’t have time for that. Not for now.

This isn’t first time I complaining like this, like an idiot, like a weak person. Perhaps, I get influenced by depression again? Am I become mentally exhausted?

Now I starting thinking about my job.

If I keep thinking and wish like this or that, should I….quit?

{MOVIE} Power Ranger: It’s Morphing (Bonding) Time

Five ordinary teens must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

PowerRangersPoster

The most anticipated movie for all 90’s kids. FYI, I’ve been watching all Power Ranger series from the first one until Jungle Fury. Most of my inspiration comes from Power Ranger. My favorite is Dino Thunder and Mystic Force.

When I read news about remake, I was excited. But then I calmed myself down and told myself to not set any expectations. The story was about five teenager who accidentally found strange energy source and become warrior. Although the main focus is defeat the evil Rita, I think this movie more focused on how these teenagers bonding as group.

We spent 1 hour seeing each member struggle with their own issue. I didn’t realized it until they gather around campfire, telling their story. That was when I realize this movie want us to focus on how Power Ranger unite. As group, as friends.

It’s not like they suddenly become friendly with each other, instead they take time to listen and learn each other’s personality. I love the scene where Kimberly and Trini practicing at cafe. It’s feels like they finally understand each other’s mind.

Honestly, my main reason to watch this movie was because Lionsgate. I know their CGI quality is the best in the industry, so I think it’s safe to expect something amazing from them. And they didn’t disappointed me.

The storyline may little bit cliche, the Transformer vibe are too strong with their new suit, but for CGI, act performance and their humor sense, I think this movie is great. Plus, it’s highly recommend for people who love both Power Ranger and anything that related with robot stuff.

{JOURNAL} Trip To Lombok: 5 Days Escape From Reality

A month ago, my father asked me to joined him in his reunion trip. At first, I hesitated to say yes but my father convinced me that I need vacation (working at boutique exhaust me, physically and mentally). In the end, I joined my father and sister went to Lombok.

Day 01

We were lucky got first flight in the morning. We arrived at Lombok around 8 and had breakfast at airport.

P_20170504_083306

Two hours later, Dad’s friend pick us up and we went to hotel. We met lots of another Dad’s friends as well. To be honest, I didn’t expect there’s going to be 20 people in this trip, considering that most of Dad’s friends are not younger anymore. But although they’re old, their spirit are young.

Anyway, we decided to went to Tanjung Aan beach.

C360_2017-05-04-15-44-07-578

I have no word for this. It’s too beautiful.

P_20170504_153829

P_20170504_154536

Then we took a boat to the next destination, Batu Payung Beach.

P_20170504_161030

P_20170504_163315

IMG-20170504-WA0007_1

That’s me, with my Dad. (^^)

We took lots of photos in both site, also enjoyed the water and sand. Oh, we also find a swing ^^

IMG-20170504-WA0009_1

Please don’t mind my face XDD

After enjoyed play around Tanjung Aan Beach, we walk little bit to Selong Belanak Beach.

P_20170504_175439

I’m speechless. What word that would be fit for this beauty?

The sun was gone, time for dinner.

Dad’s friends took us to a restaurant named “Sate Rembiga”. They’re served Sate Rembiga and Spicy Duck (Bebek Pedas) for our dinner.

P_20170504_201639

P_20170504_203801

If you’re spicy food lover, you’ll love it, but since I’m sweet tooth, I kinda dislike it. I couldn’t ate more than two. Really. Too hot for my taste.

 

Day 02

It’s second day! Not much place we went to, but the fun part of this day was we were went to Gili Trawangan! ^^

But, before that, we went to Kuta Mandalika Beach for morning walk.

IMG-20170505-WA0006

C360_2017-05-05-06-53-18-446

C360_2017-05-05-06-52-07-282

After breakfast, we took a car and went to Desa Sade (Sade village). They’re known for their “kidnapping” tradition. The “kidnapping” tradition is where a guy kidnap a girl whom they love as proposal to the girl’s parents. In 3 days, the girl’s parents should agree and give their blessing.

P_20170505_104549

Unfortunately, we don’t had much time to explored the village because it almost Jumu’ah time. I hope I can go back and learn more about this unique village and its tradition.

From Sade to Lombok Islamic Center. Because it’s Friday, most of men are do Jumu’ah  while women do Dzhuhur pray as usual. But something funny happened. When I was arrived at women’s section, some of guys said, ” Come, come! Today is special day! Today’s khatib is Tuan Guru Bajang!”

I was wondered who is Tuan Guru Bajang when I noticed most of women around me didn’t stand and do Dzhuhur. Instead, they sat and heard the khutbah. I was like, ” Aren’t we supposed to pray now?”

I sat, waited the adzan, but the adzan time already passed, so I confused. When the khutbah done, all women stand and do Jumu’ah. I was shocked. I never know women are allowed to do Jumu’ah. But I followed them, although my mind being completely blank.

But you know what, the most surprising thing that I heard after pray was about Tuan Guru Bajang. Turns out, he’s the Governor of Nusa Tenggara Barat.

C360_2017-05-05-13-33-27-678

After shocking event, I, along with all tour member, went to harbour. We took speed boat to went to Gili Trawangan. It was amazing experience. At first, it felt scary but after few minutes, I start enjoy it.

We spend the rest of night with tasty dinner and some jokes. Seriously, these people aren’t as old as their pyshical. They’re really crack me up!

IMG_20170506_114541_160

Dad, you’re so lucky having friends like that.

C360_2017-05-05-20-19-24-003

Bytheway, I’d been ate lot of seafood in here. I forgot what kind of fish was, but it’s delicious!

Day 03

It’s 3rd day, and we’re prepared for snorkeling! I was waited this day, only to find out I got period! (-_________________-)

Well, to cheer myself up, I took morning walk around beach.

C360_2017-05-06-06-37-44-422

Now, it’s time for snorkeling!

IMG-20170508-WA0002

P_20170506_081704

IMG-20170508-WA0003

After snorkelling, we packed our stuff and back to Lombok. Our next destination is Taman Narmada (Narmada Garden)

P_20170506_163539

The guide said this was a place where King and Queen rest.

P_20170506_163734

Also, there’s Telaga Ajeng. replica of Segara Anakan

P_20170506_163831

P_20170506_164755

P_20170506_163836

But I think the most anticipated one was this:

P_20170506_165930

There’s sacred water source that will make a person become eternally young. Unfortunately, I couldn’t enter since I’m on period. Hmph.

IMG-20170508-WA0005

Well, at least we could take a photo.

Next stop: Sate Bulayak

C360_2017-05-06-15-31-59-827

I forgot to asked my Dad what’s difference between Sate Rembiga and Sate Bulayak. Both of them are spicy, tho. (-_-) But hey, this time, I managed to ate all of it! Yeeeyyy!!!

Oh, and of course, we took another photo.

IMG-20170508-WA0004

 

Day 04

It’s last day of our trip. My Dad’s friend took us to Sembalun. It’s near Mount Rinjani.

IMG-20170507-WA0003

P_20170507_091117

We didn’t hike too far because most of Dad’s friends are tired (I guess they finally reach their limit), so we just hike few meters and took photo.

P_20170507_103352

P_20170507_103400

But my favorite part of this day was learned how to weave

P_20170507_154052

They said, if a girl have been mastered the weave technique, it means she’s ready to be married ( O_O)

Day 05

Time to go home! Kinda sad because I feel like there’s lots of place I have to visit. I also feel sad because the next day I have to go back to reality >.<

Our flight was around 1 PM, so we took time for brunch.

P_20170508_111139

Then, we back to Bekasi.

 

5 days isn’t enough for visit all gorgeous places in Lombok, but it’s enough for short getaway and relaxation. I ever heard someone said that travelling will help you recover from stress and depression. I wasn’t believed it, because not everyone have that kind of luxury and money to travel whenever they want. But this trip did help me ease my mind. It sound hypocrite for me, but maybe, maybe for once in a while, we need time for ourselves.

Some people doing it by travelling a lot, but others may find peace at home and do hobbie.

So what’s yours? How do you spend time for relaxing?

xoxo,
