Ahemmm.. *clear my throat*
Who could expect that I'm going to Korea (again) this year? I also didn't expect it! *O*
The most exciting thing about this trip is, I will meet my most favorite Korean Indie Band "Standing EGG" and participating in producing a song and music video with their team *gasp*
OH MY GOD! T_______T *teary*
So, last month I joined a contest named Miss Flower Music Tour Contest. ❤
The mission was: tap into your inner poet and compose lyric *in English, of course* about springtime in Korea.
Winners of the best lyrics will have a chance to enjoy spring in Korea and its lush cultural offerings. The winning lyrics will be produced into a song and music video by a Korean acoustic band over 4 nights and 5 days.
What we need to do was compose lyric about spring, love and flower.. and watch this video below for reference =
Maybe you think that I'm too overexcited but I'm not! (///∇//)
I live in tropical country named Indonesia. Rather than common 4 seasons, there are only TWO seasons in Indonesia: Wet and Dry.
In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April (low season), and the dry season between May and September (high season).
So.. basically I never experienced the real Spring, Fall and Winter before!
Before joined this contest, I have tried some contest that also hosted by KTO and iBuzzKorea and I didn't win.. You may knew that I ever made a video about Asian on Air last year as I didn't win..
When composing lyric submission for these contest, I listened to Standing Egg's songs over and over again. I love how they express their pure passion towards music and mostly they have simple yet meaningful lyrics! (≧◡≦)
Finally, I submitted my lyric onto their website and I checked the announcement on 29th March and I feel like got heart-attack afterwards.. O____O
|They censored winners' username and e-mail due to privacy|
OOHHHH HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD! *singing*
Jesus Christ, I can't thank enough TT_____TT ❤❤❤❤
I'm so grateful that I didn't give up too soon!
Well, actually I didn't really expected that my lyric submission would win.. since my English isn't that good and I'm bad at poetry or literature..
No one could arrange unlimited blessings in my life, except Jesus Christ.
Thank YOU for Your sweet surprise God ❤❤
Your favor last a lifetime :') I'm not lucky, I'm BLESSED indeed !
Finally I can experience real SPRING in Korea and get involved in a song and music video production with Standing Egg!! (ﾉ─ ‿‿ ─)ﾉ *dancing*
|their latest mini album: AMBLER|
This is the reason why I'm so busy this month.. I'm preparing for all documents for my visa application, watching k-dramas to sharpening my Korean skill and so on. I didn't want to repeat last year vacation mistakes, when I was too shy to speak up to strangers >___< (unless for urgent matters)
|springtime in Korea.. FLOWERS BLOOMING EVERYWHERE!!!|
I will go to Korea on 5th-10th May, 2013.
I think I can't open Pre-order again this time >_< Because I have limited free time and I'm joining a tour group team, so our schedule is tight, packed, and well-organized.
If you never listen to Standing Egg's song before, YOU SHOULD! ( *____*)
I love their songs seriously!!
AND this is the song titled "MISS FLOWER" that I'm getting involved for this project..
Enjoy the song ❤❤❤
Anyway, please listen to this song as well ( o^‿^o )
This was the first song from Standing Egg that I listened last year ❤
I have instantly fallen in love with them after listen to this song!
Last but not least... I would like to say that my winning is NOT literally because of my luck, but I also gave my best, effort and prayer. It takes patience, time, idea and guts. Please don't just look at me on winning side, but also witness me when I didn't win anything on any contest but stay grateful :)
Don't be afraid to try, never underestimate yourself! :)
너무 고맙습니다! ❤ 대한민국에 갈고예요!! 우와~~~~
I really can't wait for this trip!! XD
Keep in touch with them!
