Cinemas In Japan & 2012 Movies Review

Monday, November 23, 2009 · 194 comments

I want to see what kind of Japanese cinema because since I stayed in Japan I've never been going to the cinemas. Therefore this weekend me and some of my friends spent the saturday night with watching movies. Movies that we saw is 2012, a movies that tells of the world will ends in year 2012. In Indonesia my friend said this movies is booming, everyday the ticket is sold out. So to anticipate the possibility of the same condition I told friends to buy tickets 3 hours before starting, but it's normal here. My friend said there was little difference between Japan and Indonesia. In Japan generaly the ticket divided into 3 groups:

1. for children ¥1400. 2. Student ¥1600. 3. Adult ¥1800. While in Indonesia, all groups was no difference in price. More over the movies divided into 2 parts: 1. The movies With Dubbing in japanese. 2. The movies with subtitle japanese. I think this division may be intended because not all Japanese people can read kanji so the movie was dubbing.

after we went into the cinema room, disappointment appeared immediately, because the movie screen and the sound was not great and not as cool as I imagined. Small screen and the voice sounded just the front. But it was only the beginning, after the movie started, the screen was raised, and a voice that sounded more assured, very really a true theater. For seating and room temperature, no problem, soft and comfortable.

About 2012

I enjoyed the movies till end, I like the visual effect. But not with my friends, they felt a sleep in the middle. They were a little disappointed with the plot. They imagine, if the Resurrection occurred, then the earth will be destroyed not left. But in this movie they can make super-sophisticated ships and very strong against shocks. The plot is almost similar to the story of Noah. Where people of Noah very stubborn, refusing to acknowledge God. So that their punishment in the form of a great flood. But Noah and his followers survived, because they make a big ship. And tha... I think in the reality no one knows, when the end will occur. The Resurrection is the secret of God. Ow... by the way The movie is brought by TOHO cinemas, if in Indonesia same as 21 Cineplex. Ok so that's my experince with Japan cinemas.


Edamame The Healty Food

Tuesday, November 3, 2009 · 146 comments

First time I bought edamame in the mini market, but there is also restaurant which provides edamame as the food menu. People here said, edamame is delicious. At first I did not know that edamame are soy beans. Edamame shells color is green and containing a complete protein and all the essential Amino Acids.

Edamame is the only vegetable that offers a complete protein profile equal to both meat and eggs in its protein content.

A little curious about the edamame, I finally tried to search on the internet. From the Internet is known that China is a country, soybean users as a first food then Japan and finally extended to all countries asia. Edamame usualy eaten with boiled way for a few minutes to tender.

Put edamame in a medium bowl. Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the edamame. Rub them with salt. Boil lots of water in a large pot. Add 1 Tbsp of salt in the boiling water. Add edamame in the boiling water and boil for 3 to 4 minutes.

The shape is like ordinary peas, but in terms of nutrient content, edamame is a high-protein foods.

per 100gr edible portions
Vitamin A
Vitamin U1
Vitamin C

If we see from that nutritional info, edamame gives you a bunch of fiber: 9 grams, about the same amount you'll find in 4 slices of whole-wheat bread or 4 cups of steamed zucchini. It has almost as much protein as it does carbohydrate. It contains around 10% of the Daily Value for two key antioxidants; vitamins C and A. And for a plant food, it's quite high in iron; it has about as much as a 4-ounce roasted chicken breast.

Edamame can be used as health food. From the research that has been done there is a lots of benefits of edamame:

  • reduce insulin resistance
  • reduced LDL "bad" cholesterol
  • raised HDL or "good" cholesterol
  • protect against cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis

Japanese police last week providing education about preparing to face an earthquake to the Indonesian citizens who are living in Hamamatsu. This is a form of concern from the Japan government to Indonesia which recently hit by an earthquake.

Here are some guidelines if an earthquake shook suddenly.

  • When the earthquake occurred, starting with maintaining your own safety. Go to the bottom of the table to protect your body from dropping objects. If you do not have a table, cover your head with your hands or a pillow.

  • Once the shock subsided, immediately looked around the fire resources. If you're lighting the stove, then turn off immediately to prevent fires. If there is a fire immediately to extinguish.

  • Do not hurry to get out of the room.

  • Do not approach the fence, a tall building or the narrow hallway.

  • Beware of the coming flood of water, tsunami's, mountain cliffs or avalanche. There is the possibility of landslides occurred on the mountain. Get away to safety immediately. On the coast, the danger comes from the tsunami. If you feel the vibrations and signs of a tsunami, quick to flee to higher ground.

  • Evacuate on foot and a little luggage.

  • Joined together to help other victims. It was predictable that many people will be injured during a major earthquake. Because of health workers from hospitals will have difficulty coming to the scene, so be prepared to give first aid to the people around you.

To prevent panic, it is important everyone be calm and act in accordance with the correct information. You can get the correct information from the authorities or the police.

How to Showing 78.6 Level Fibonacci Retracement In MT4

Monday, October 12, 2009 · 42 comments

It is no doubt that Forex has become a big bisnis online today. This information is for you who using MT4 as your software for trading in forex investment. According to simpleforexsolution

Fibonacci Retracement is a price movement in the opposite direction of the previous trend. Fibonacci refers to a number sequence prevalent in nature that shows trends that adhere to certain percentages. The key retracement values in the form of a percentage are 23.6%, 38.2%, 61.8%, and 78.6%.

To show the ratio of 78.6% in fibonaci retracement

  • Find the highest value (resistance) and low (support) from the chart, for example in the figure chart USD / JPY the lowest occurred on January 21, 2009 and the highest value is on 6 April 2009. Click the picture to enlarge!

  • Click the icon Fibonaci Retracement, drag a diagonal line from the lowest to highest then stop on the value of the chart, which appears from fibonaci ratio was 0.0, 23.6, 38.2, 50, 61.8, and 100. Click the picture to enlarge!

According to thecuriousinvestor

Two other popularly used ratios are the 50% and 78.6% ratios. 50% is simply 1 / 2 and 78.6% is the square root of the inverse of the Golden Ratio.

How to display it? Open fibo properties, select the tab fibo levels --> click Add then input the value of 0.786, in the column level and value of 78.6, in the description field and click OK. So in the chart will appear online 78.6. Click the picture to enlarge!

Usefulness of this ratio is for market entry, usually chart will turn up to the level of 61.8 or 50 depending on market conditions. But there are a traders who recommend that this level is not good for entry, as expressed chungkhoanso

78.6%, This level should not be used for entry. Rather your stop loss should be placed behind the short term 78.6% retracement level. The reason for this is that the further the price pulls back, the higher the probability that it is actually a reversal as compared to a retracement. Once the price pulls back over 78.6% there is a far higher probability that it will actually retrace the full 100%. Hence, a stop behind 78.6% protects your losses by having a slightly tighter stop that using the 100% level. This also results in a more favorable reward to risk ratio.

The final choice depends on you. Good luck.

Sony NW A 918 Walkman withTV Tunner

Sunday, October 4, 2009 · 36 comments

A little bit reviews Mp3 Player from Sony. Although this Mp3 has been released from November 2007 but until now still a lot of buyers. I bought this mp3 player in April 2008. I was confused to chose between the iPod, Kenwood and Panasonic. But I finally chose this Sony NW A918 because there are several advantages compared with others.

There are 2 advantages of this MP3 Player. Sony NW A918 is the latest revolution Sony Walkman. Mp3 Walkman with TV Tuner. So besides listening to music mp3 we can watch TV programs but only in areas of Japan. And incredibly we can record TV programs that we could not see. TV screen can also be arranged, Landscape or Potrait. Here are excerpts of reviews from

NW-A910 series come with an internal one-seg TV tuner for watching digital TV. The service is limited to Japan only and with upto 16GB of flash memory you can record upto 16 hours of TV programming and with support for EPG (Electronic Programming Guide) you can program the device to record a particular TV program. One shortcoming is the small 2.4 inch display, come on Sony, TV is always better on the big screen a 3.5 - 4.0 inch screen would be ideal. It supports playback of majority of audio / video formats

From these reviews I was interested in buying this MP3 Player. But unfortunately I just found this with a capacity of 8 Gb. Well rather be 8 hours of recorded TV programs. That means I can record a football game broadcast from 3 to 4 matches World Cup at that time. :)

Earphone Sony NW A918 offers noise cancellation as well, so advice to you do not listen the music when was driving the vehicle because the sound horn or other vehicles will not be heard. The onboard DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) further enhances the sound quality. The Lithium Ion battery provides 6 hours of TV viewing, 8.5 hours of recording with the display off and around 36 hours of music playback. The Sony NW-A918 is compatible with Windows only, sorry Mac users.


The 8 Habits to Increase Blog Ranking Quickly

Sunday, September 27, 2009 · 32 comments

Actualy I'm not the expert about writing this topic since my background only a labor in a factory. But because of the pressure from some blogger friends who was surprised to see traffic alexa rank of my blog increased rapidly whereas the age of blogs less than a month.

In my opinion, improving blog rankings is the same analogy as if we're selling goods. In order to people buy the goods we sell we must promote it. As well as the blog that we created, in order to people come to visit our blog requires promotion.

No need to linger longer. I will point out the 8 habits to increase blog ranking based on my experience in improving blog rank on alexa site.

  1. Use a unique domain name, so easily remembered by visitors. Then register your blog on search engines site. This strategy often improved blog ranking.

  2. Create an original article, do not copy and paste from another blog. You can write anything about information that is useful for visitors.

  3. Publish the article regularly and periodically. Better to publish 1 post every day instead publish 7 posts a day but once a week.

  4. Articles that have been in publishing, also register at blog directory, social networking site or forum, like, facebook etc..

  5. Try to create a templates blog as simple as possible, but still makes visitors feel at home and enjoyed reading your article. Not to load too long because it will annoy visitors and eventually canceled his/her intention to visit our blog.

  6. Doing blogwalking. Frequently visited the neighbor's blog, this is very tedious for some people because they thought it a waste of time.

  7. Do not just blogwalking, follow their blog and do not forget to leave a comment on the guestbook or articles they have made so we leave footprints and they will visit our blog. Amazingly not only them, the others will visit too.

  8. Last but not least, there are more effective ways by exchange links with other blogger. In this way we do not need to remember the name of their blog but this way is preferred by the search engines.


Things Become Very Valuable

Wednesday, September 23, 2009 · 16 comments

It's 2 times already I spent Eid Fitr far from the family, no event of Sungkeman, eating ketupat and lebaran's cookies. If I check facebook sometimes feel envious look at the status of my friends "was OTW to Bandung" or "Way back to Malang ..-fried Duck Ariel.. waiting.. qiqiqi" hiks-hiks so sad!

Apparently I was not alone, many of my friends here in the same boat with me, not "berlebaran" at home. Finally I understand one of the philosophy of life, my friend who said that "Sometimes things become very valuable as far from our lives" What "things" was? It depends on our own interpretation.

"Things" could be our loved ones or things you care about. Therefore if there is an important moment let us not waste it, use it as possible. Like a professional photographer can always capture the precious moment in every snap his picture.


Eid Fitr 1430H

Saturday, September 19, 2009 · 33 comments

Brother's & Sister's how are you? For several days I was not blogging, until not seem Ramadan this year to be over. Hopefully our fasting and worship is better than Ramadan last year.

Idly browsing the internet, not accidentally finding good Islamic rap song. Name of the band is Blackstone, maybe the name adopt from Hajar Aswad stone which the color is black. I heard one of the songs the title is Apologies. Accordance with this Eid Fitr, from the bottom of my heart, I say Taqobballohu Minna Wa Minkum, There is no word as beautiful as the excuse. If there are words and actions that made you angry err ... I would expect apology.

On this joyous occasion of Eid Fitr... May Allah bless our with happiness and grace our home with warmth and peace on Eid Fitr 1430H!
