Meg Cabot: The Mediator Series

One of the things that every nerd loves to write is about books. Well, if you ask me about my favourite writer and then I have a very long list to show to you until you'll regret that you ever asked that question. However, I won't wait until you ask me that question because no matter what, I'll tell you. Well, I'm just kidding, even nerd knows how to kid, well, probably, knows a bit.

Okaaayyy... I admit, I'm bad in making a joke. However, still, I want to tell you who is my favourite writer; she is Meg Cabot. I know, I know, you have prepared to close this page if I mentioned name like Fredrich Nietzsche or Aristotle, that is why I mentioned Meg Cabot to attract your attention. (I'm trying to make a joke and I think I'm failed -again-).

Well, however please don't expect that I will write about Princess Diaries because though I love reading them but the series are so yesterday. Furthermore, there are a lot of series that you should read written by Meg Cabot and The Mediator Series is one that I really love.

The Mediator Series are consisting of six books and I've read the Indonesian version and I don't know why the  Indonesian publisher didn't put the number of the series. However, later I know that even there is no series number in the original version. So, if you are interested to read this book, here is the list of books:

#1. Shadowland #2. Ninth Key #3.Reunion #4.Darkest Hour #5.Haunted #6.Twilight

The Mediator Series are series that tell about the life of Susannah Simon who is falling in love with the ghost who stays in her bedroom in her step father's house in Carmel, California. So, it is a ghost story? Well, I can't say that because for me ghost story is supposed to be creepy and hair-raising but this one is not. So, I think it is not a ghost story though most of the characters in the books are ghost. The meaning of mediator is actually a person who is gifted with a kind of supernatural power so he/she could interact with the ghosts. Interact here is not only seeing but also talking, touching, poking, punching, kicking the ghost and in Susannah Simon's case, a mediator is also able to fall in love with the ghost. 



Camino: Your Choice for Photography Blog

In order to help my best friend promoting her photography business, I made a very cool blog for MIDORI PHOTOGRAPHY. People prefer to focus on purchasing domain and paying premium template or hiring someone professional to help them designing the look of the blog when the fact is there are a lot of cool templates for blog,especially blog from blogspot that are offered for free.

I have written about one of my favourite blog templates named Camino some months ago and right now I am not about to discuss how to manage the look of the blog if you are using Camino but in this post I want to discuss how perfect this template for photography blog.



Here are some benefits you could get by using Camino for your photography blog:
Sliders
As the start you could visit the blog by clicking this link MIDORI PHOTOGRAPHY. You would find that the Slider feature in the header page which could be filled with photos you want to display. Furthermore, each photo can be linked to any page you want.
Photo Display
If you open one of the post and you will see that there are several photos displayed in the post. However, it is very annoying when you want to see a photo but the size is not big enough for you to see. Well, if you are using Camino as your blog template, you could display the photo in bigger view just by clicking one of the photos and all photos in one post will be displayed automatically.

So, if you are currently looking for a template for your photography blog, perhaps choosing Camino is not a bad choice at all. You would always be able to edit the HTML so it fits to your personal desires or your individual needs but you should keep the credit to the designer by keeping the attribution in the footer page.

Save Your Date on March 23rd for The Hunger Games Movie

Speaking of my 2012 watch-list, The Hunger Games is totally on the top of my list. I have read the book, trilogy of The Hunger Games written by Suzzane Collins and of course I can’t wait for the film adaption. Well, it is true there are a lot of people speculating that this movie is going to be a big disappointment for The Hunger Games readers but still what you could expect? If the book is amazing, you cannot expect the movie to be more than that. There is no film which story is adapted from the books, especially best seller books, will gain more fans or better impression than the books.

If it is based on the current plan, the movie adaption of The Hunger Games will be consisting of three movies, just like the books. For the plot, perhaps the director, Gary Ross will try his best to stick to the original plot of the book. So far, from the trailer I could see that the plot is based on the original plot of the book, however still you need to wait for the movie to be released this March to see the whole story because you cannot just depend on the trailer to see the whole plot of the movie. Simple example is Percy Jackson: The Lightening Thief which plot is totally different from the plot of the book though the movie trailer is simply stunning.



You could cross your finger that The Hunger Games would be not ended like Percy Jackson because in the interview with MTV, Woody Harrelson who is currently casting as Haymitch Abernathy said that the main casts of The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth have signed for the whole franchise. Furthermore, the sequel from the second novel of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire is already on schedule to be released on November, 2013.

For the soundtrack of The Hunger Games, Taylor Swift has taken place as the song writer for the first single of the film’s soundtrack, Safe and Sound. In this song she is featuring with The Civil Wars. Some musicians like Win Butler, The Secret Sisters, Miranda Lambert, Neko Case up to Jennifer Lawrence are also contributing in the film’s soundtrack. Jennifer Lawrence is singing the “Rue’s Lullaby”.

So, save your date for the first movie of The Hunger Games which is scheduled to be released on March 23, 2012.

New Song: Story Behind the Rain Drops

by ekarifin

Story Behind the Rain Drops


Staring out to the world behind
The drops of the rain
Staring out to the world across the sea
To tell this story
Looking back to the time when I
Still lived in pain
Which would never coming back
But through the story

Story for the wishers
Story for the prayers
Story for those who search
For LOVE

Standing up behind the big wall
And learning how to climb
Standing up by the seashore
And learning how to surf the ocean
Speaking up what on your thought
To release them go
Keeping up them for your own
And then nobody would ever know

Story for the wishers
Story for the prayers
Story for those who search for LOVE

Staring out to the world behind
The drops of the rain
Staring out to the world across the sea
To tell this story
Standing up behind the big wall
And learning how to climb
Keeping up them for your own
or release them go


More about the lyric:
I was inspired by a friend. It was the rainy November and we just talked about the rain drops. Suddenly, a lot of questions buzzed in my head about the rain tales and stories.
There are a lot of interpretations you could get just by hearing the rain drops. There are a lot of songs that are inspired by the drops of the rain.
There are a lot of people out there who wait for the rain and there are also some people out there who curse on the rain.
How about you? What is the meaning of rain to you?
And the lyric above is the meaning of rain to me...

I found a very cool page named Earthian in Facebook. This page is especially established to inspire people about the importance of living in green.

Perhaps you have seen the picture but I just want to share this picture wider and if you want you could share the picture as well, to inspire everyone around you about the importance of living in green.
The title of the picture is very inspiring and at the same time is also interesting; it is PollutiON vs PollutiOFF.

Chocolate Business for February 14th

What do you see from February? Most people out there would see February as the month of love but I see February as the month of opportunity. There is a business prospect you could get from this month and if I were Willy Wonka, I’m going to be a rich person this month.

As a ghostwriter who works from home and has a lot of spare time, I could see this kind of opportunity a bit clearer than you are. Yes, for me February is not only a month of love when billions people worldwide are celebrating Valentine’s Day with chocolates and flowers because I’m not interesting to spend a lot of money to buy chocolates for my boyfriend. It is not because I’m not romantic or what but I think he doesn’t like chocolate as much as I do and I’m a kind of old-fashioned girl who would never buy a chocolate for a guy. So, yeah I prefer not to give him any chocolate.



So, why I should talk about chocolate right now? Well, as mentioned above I see this opportunity a bit clearer than you are, instead of buying chocolate I prefer to selling chocolate.

There are two options available to you in this matter:
You make your own chocolate to sell
Well, actually you don’t need secret recipe to sell chocolate for Valentine’s Day because sometime people don’t care about how it tastes but they care about how it looks. You could visit several websites for the recipes.
Reselling chocolate from chocolate company
There are a lot of companies or home industries that you could cooperate with. You don’t need to get involved in the production because you just take place as a reseller. You must be surprised that there are a lot of people out there who don’t mind to spend a lot of money for chocolate this month. In other words, you could take this opportunity to make margin as big as possible as a reseller.

So, what are you waiting for? February 14th is approaching and perhaps it is the perfect time for you to start searching about all info related to chocolate business for February. Well, are you currently living in West Borneo? I wish you are not because this month I will sell chocolate in this island and I don’t want you to be my competitors, well I’m just kidding… ^^

Happy Valentine ^^

Tips to Tell What You Feel About A Guy

I call myself a writer though I love music so much but I don't deserve the title as musician yet. However, I love writing music though I don't know how to read note.

Today, I'm going to post something a bit personal; it is about the very first song I wrote when I was in high school. This song means a lot to me because it is the first song I wrote though I don't remember the reason why I wrote this song from the first place.

However, some month ago I played this song in front of a guy I like as my expression that he and I (perhaps) were destined to be together. I was trying to tell him what I feel about him without reveal my true feeling. Since I'm the girl and I'm a kind of old-fashioned girl so I would never ask for a guy to be my boyfriend. It is very tricky but it works, well he's my boyfriend right now.

So, perhaps this song could help you girls to tell the guy you really like that he should ask you out immediately.

This song is available in Indonesia and English version. The title is Bila (Indonesian Version) and That You Love Me As Well (English Version)


(for clearer view just hover your mouse and then click the picture)

Lyric in ENGLISH VERSION

That You Love Me As Well

When I’m staring at the moon light
In the dark night along with the pole stars
I feel like whole of my life is longing
To meet the half part of my lovely soul and heart
Now I’m just getting it into my head
That’s you are all that I’ve had
But all that I could get
It’s hard for you to say
The three magic spells
That you love me as well


Here is the Song I Play, I'm sorry for the quality but it will help you about how to play the song ^^



So, GOOD LUCK GIRLS... ^^

Get to Know More about Lily Collins

Some days ago I watched Abduction; a movie about a kid who is protected by a kind of secret agency because of his father has big secret to protect. Well, I’m not talking about the movie in this post because what I’m about to talk here is actually an actress that became the co-star of Taylor Lautner in the movie; she is Lily Collins. Yes, some of you might have heard about her since her father is Phil Collins, however when I watched Abduction, it was the first time I know about this girl and the first impression I got “wow, she is beautiful”.



Lily Collins is a British-American actress because her father, Phil Collins is a British and her mother, Jill Tavelman is an American. Well, I’m a movie freak and one of the reasons why I don’t know about Lily Collins is because I never watch any movies or tv series where she’s starring at because so far her filmography are only two episodes of the new 90210, The Blind Side, Priest and then Abduction. However, I could see that she would have bright future in Hollywood because after her appearance in Abduction with Lautner, she is currently casting as Snow White for Mirror Mirror; the new tale of Snow White and Seven Dwarfs which will be released this March.

Well, I think Mirror Mirror is one of the movies I’ll put on my watch-list in 2012.



More about Lily Collins, the buzz said that she dated Taylor Lautner after Abduction, right now new buzz is just spreading out that she is actually dating Zac Efron. Well, she's cute so she deserves cute boys as well... ^^
