So here we ago again, another yearly post full of idolling’s journey. This year nothing much compared the last 2 years, but of course there’s still plenty of experience anyway :P. Just in case you didnt know, every year i always do this long-ass post of summary of idolling journey lol…if you missed my previous year post, you can see below haha 😀
January 2014 to March 2014
Nothing much for me from January 2014 to March 2014, except some local idolling events, such as JKT48 theatre, lives, and stuffs. Some notable events like “JKT48 @ Dahsyat Awards 2014”, “JKT48 Festive Concert/3rd Gen (28th Jan 2014)” and “JKT48 Performance during Waku Waku Event” which happened in both January 2014 and February 2014. I went to take pictures coverages of all those events too ^^

Jap trip Summary:
I think the highlights of my Japan Trip this time…is that i went ALL the way to Fukuoka just to see Passpo and then to Morioka just to see Dorothy Little Happy lol…and i also managed to take 2shot with many idols such as “Ai Shinozaki”, Passpo Captain “Negishi Ai” and Passpo member “Mio Masui”. I also managed to take 2shot with some palet members such as “Miki, Sakimo, and also Riona + Miyuki” haha. Also, i celebrated my Birthday at @Home Cafe in Akihabara…because it’s my birthday i can take a group shot with all the maids there for free lol…not bad ah ? 😀
Overall, it’s a pretty damn awesome trip ^^
April 2014 – July 2014
Between April 2014 to July 2014, there’s nothing but local idolling events i guess…More JKT48 events, and also Lumina Scarlet events. During these periods, i managed to see 2 Lumina Scarlet event, once during April 2014 @ Lippo Cikarang, and then another one at the yearly “Ennichisai” festival in May 2014 ^^ 😀
Also, during 2014 JKT48 held 2shot events in their Theatre. Here are some of my favorite 2shot pics with our local idols hahaha
July 2014 – August 2014 – TOKYO IDOL FESTIVAL 2014
Yeah, summer time in Japan = Tokyo Idol Festival time for me haha. Went for TIF2014 for the third consecutive year in a row lol.
Over there i also managed to take a group picture with Rev From DVL. a.k.a Kanna Hashimoto and friends haha. Anyways, it would be too long to list all my TIF2014 experience and stuffs, so just refer back to my old post for that haha 😀 My favorite Performance during TIF2014 is Dorothy Little Happy at Smile Garden / Hot Stage though ^^ 😛
Quick Selfie at the Smile Garden Stage after Passpo Performance

OFC Card LOL!! /Random
August – October 2014
There’s nothing Much between August 2014 to October 2014 actually. There’s Anime Festival Indonesia 2014 in August, but i didnt really enjoy it that much for some reason…i guess mainly because there’s no idol involved in it haha 😛
In September, there’s the “Indonesia International Motorshow 2014” too, where JKT48 performed there. I know right, it’s a carshow, but why there’s an idol performance there? Beats me 😀
In October 2014 there’s a JKT48 Gingham Check Handshake Event. I didn’t really buy that many handshake tickets recently, so i didnt really want to cover my whole experience during my handshake event…but i got sponfed by Naomi during the event at one of the chocolate fountain booth there LOL. 😀
November 2014 – JMusic Lab 2014
November 2014 is actually one of my favorite month…because Dorothy Little Happy is coming to Indonesia!! :O 😀 😀 Yay!! The Live @ Jmusic lab only cost 25k rupiah (which is around 3$ only Lol). I even went to the airport to welcome them that time…and i’m the only one there lol.
Dorothy Little Happy performed total 9 songs at the JMusic Lab, followed by a Handshake session for those who buy their latest album starting over….for just 100k rupiah (around 10$) you get the album, an autographed poster, as well handshake with all of the member…pretty good deal eh? 😀
There’s also other performers in JMusic Lab such as “Aoi Eir”, “AmiAya”, “Cynthia”, “Taro@Jiro” and event some local idol “Fleurs Melon” but didn’t really pay much attention to them…lol.
30th November 2014 – JXperience @ Summarecon Bekasi
At the end of November, there’s also this event at Summarecon Bekasi called Jexperience. This unique event has some local idols performing there – most of them are still “underground” / not famous yet though. Lumina Scarlet is one of the performers there 😀 Other performers including “Wish”, “Love Tune”, “Kirari” and “Sky Girl Project”.
(Indonesia sure has alot of new/up-coming idol groups these days huh?)
In Early December, there’s the JKT48 Kokoro no Placard Handshake Event. As usual, i didnt really handshake that much in these handshake events these days. Mostly usually just to meet friends and take photos only lol.
During X-Mas Day on 25th December 2014 there’s also a local idol event (lol), called “Idol Fiesta” at Plaza Blok M. Some of there performers there including Lumina Scarlet (yay), Lone Tune, and Heart Ribbon.
JKT48 3rd Anniv Concert – 27-28th Dec 2014
The last idolling event of the year for me would be the JKT48 3rd Anniversary Concert on the 27th-28th Dec 2014 at Tenis Indoor Senayan. The 2 days concert is pretty good- imo i think its the best JKT48 Live to date. I also managed to catch a ball by Naomi there lol…but when i check the ball, it’s signed by Chikarina and not Naomi’s one LOL…oh well 😛
So yeah, that is basically the summary of 2014 for me. I think this year i have really reduced my JKT48 theatre visits to just once/twice per month, which is really good for me that i can actually control my spendings like that lol…(last time i used to go theatre almost everyday).
I think my target next year would be the same again i guess…another Japan Trip, and hopefully another visit to Tokyo Idol Festival 2015 hahaha.
Ok i shall end this post here…
