Get Your Sexy Back with JJ Lin

Singapore people have a campaign for young adults to drink alcohol moderately. Isn't it nice? This program is named Get Your Sexy Back (GYSB), has been run for 2 years now. It is sponsored by Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore (APBS) to hold some positive events and activities. Having a slogan: "It's not the drinking, it's how you're drinking", they want to spread the message to people (especially young adults) for drinking responsibly and knowing your own limit, you would not be sexy anymore if you got too drunk.


Last Wednesday they made an event: GYSB Boomz Concert '09 in Zouk's Velvet Underground. Zouk is one of the best clubs in Singapore and now supporting GYSB. The concert was nice, featuring some local musicians which are Jillian Marie Thomas, Da Feng Chui, Carrie Yeo and Chen Diya, En-x and the superstar JJ Lin.

As an expat (really?), I don't know much about Singapore musicians (and most of them sing in Chinese), I was amazed with big enthusiasm from audience there for the last performer, JJ Lin. Me and my friend wondered who is that guy, seems like everybody knows him and waited for his performance. Apparently JJ Lin is a Singapore Chinese pop-singer who is currently living in Taiwan. He is cute! And the songs are catchy (I start listening to his songs now) as I also like that kind of pop-boyband songs although they are in Chinese (like F4(now JVKV)'s songs for example).

And surprise surprise, he was in Sprite TV commercials with Se7en! I posted about that last year in my blog, but at that time it was because I like Se7en (Korean actor/singer) and didn't have any idea about the other guy on those commercials. Here is the blog posting: Drink-Something Commercials (sorry it was written in Bahasa Indonesia but you could see some videos with JJ Lin in them). So it explains why that face was quite familiar for me when I saw him in GYSB concert.

Back to GYSB concert, I like Jillian Marie Thomas too, she sang some english familiar songs in acoustic mode. My favourite one is mixed song of Just Dance, Poker Face (Lady Gaga) and I Kissed A Girl (Katy Perry). She also performed I Gotta Feeling (one of my fav songs right now), so yeah I like her performance that night! With some goodie bags and free flow drinks and free entry to Zouk (well that was in Ladies Night actually so I could come in without charge no matter what, but my friend could not), it was fun to attend this event. Thanks omy for inviting me. And now I'm a GYSB Friend :)




*sorry for the bad pictures, I didn't prepare to bring my pocket camera, so I took the pics with my blackberry camera. Me and my friend sat and enjoyed the show peacefully from the backside with no perfect angle to take pictures of stage.

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
