ENNICHISAI 2016 ~ Miracle , Power of Love~

Hello Dreamers !
I'm back !
It's such a tired some . 
I want to said ! 
Thank you for the hardwork everyone !

So i already in Jakarta since Friday.
Since it's friday there's nothing much to do.
BUT there's something to do. haha .

The first day i arrived i go to meeting with M-stage people.



With beloved Eonni , Taeyeon <3 and Oto-P ( producer of Bunga Sakura Song )

So i will have performance at M-Stage for final and P-stage after WKG.
at friday i only do meeting and rehearsal.
Rehearsal at P stage was taken too much time.
I starting around 10 pm ( maybe ) .. it's supposed to be at 8.50 pm i guess.
But can't do anything since it's about technical stuff.

After i finish rehearsal, I decided to go back to Hotel.
I'm too tired , and i decided to skip Dinner and Breakfast in the early morning.
And i think that's a bad idea since actually i need lot of energy for Direct Selling at Saturday.
I know it's totally HOT outside there. 

At saturday i leave hotel for direct selling.
But before that i need to eat my lunch first :)



I eat at Solaria . I'm Hungry ><
I need some food !
Today style is Mori Hime <3
This Costume made by Hanika
I always ask her to make my costume. I even recommended her to my friends .
Because she is really good and neat at making costume.
I won't recommend anyone if they are bad, right ?

After eat my lunch which is taking too much time because i took lot of time to decide what menu i have to eat. lol
Then i go to ICGP Booth for Direct Selling.



And i only Direct Selling around 2 - 3 pm i guess ? Because i switch with Ito-san .
And today it's raining and humid . ( this what make you sick , be careful )
So around 3.30 pm i decided to go back to hotel and take a shower, when i come back around 5 pm my booth already closed. hahaha
I need to change my clothes since it's smell not so good.
And because i'm a girl i need lot of time to get ready .

Then i go back to hotel again since my manager said i need to prepare for final M-Stage.
i guess m-stage finish more faster than P-stage. 


I singing at Final stage.
After Finish we go to Rehearsal . Yesh for Tomorrow .




Rehearsal at Odesa.
Always.
I think this is Jakarta Keion Club Rehearsal Place. 

I finish my Rehearsal around 1 am .
Yesh 1 am.and i decided to not have dinner. 
Since tomorrow i have to checksound for M-stage i skip my breakfast as well.
I need to get ready so i wakeup at 5 am in early morning.
I know maybe for some people is tired some.
And i realize for me as well , but we have to Responsible about what we did ( Sako-san said this )
So we have to do it, and sacrifice somehow.
Because not only you. Everyone is tired as well.
Can you imagine Ennichisai staff too ? They totally tired too.


I change my face <3
Lol 
Change the hairstyle as well.
Makeup and Hairdo by My beloved best friend Gissela Vianney.
Thank you !
She is the best , my makeup is keep stay even until night :)

First i will have performance at M-Stage together with Ito-san, Sako-san , and Jakarta Keion Club !
It's such an honor !

Did you know what is behind our tie ?
Why the color is Different ?
Lemme tell you !
We called ouselves as Seasons.
So the color is stand for every each seasons.
I wear pink, which means is Haru Ranger lol
or we called it as Spring Ranger.
Sako-san wear Blue which means He is Natsu Ranger or Summer Ranger .
Jakarta Keion Member using Yellow one.
Which means they are Aki Ranger which means Fall Ranger.
Ito-san wear White which means Fuyu Ranger which means Winter Ranger.
So that's the reason behind our colorful tie :).

After i finish , i have a time to take a lunch.
Finaly i'm so hungry.
YOSHINOYA i'm coming ! haha.

After i finish, i need to prepare for P-stage !
Here we go !




( Photo by Joe )

Some people maybe realize that i cried at P-stage.
Maybe some people ask why i'm crying at stage.

For me.. To be able to where i stand right now..
it's like a dream..
A few years a go ..
I never imagine i will have people who give my fans a name..
I know there's people outside there support me but i don't know until when they will stay.
Because sometimes i have a low self-confident.
I think everyone ever feel that way sometimes.

Few years a go..
I never imagined someone i never know before calling out my name at stage..
I keep pray that someday my voice will be heard and they will realize that i exist.

Few years a go..
to be able in this stage is a dream for me..
Few years a go..
i only covering someone song..
Few years a go..
I never imagine that i can go to Japan..

But now..
To see someone calling out my name for the first time at stage..
It's make me tear up.
To be able where i stand right now.. There's always Happiness and Sadness.
But when you guys calling My name and You guys said that you like my song's.
It's make me realize there's nothing called nothing.

I means i always feel like my career is getting nowhere.
It was a lie if i said i never thinking about stop.
But when i'm at stage last week. I realized and it was hit my heart.( Which means good haha )
Thank you for making Realize and make me don't want to give up.
Thank you for calling my name at that time.
Thank you for always waiting for me..
Thank you for always trust me..
Thank you for everything..

I know i'm still not good enough..
and i'm not going satisfied with what i am right now..
so i can fly to the sky more higher than what i am right now..
so i can spread my wings to my highest dream..

I will cheers you guys as well to make your dreams come true..
No matter what people said , if you trust yourself.. i think soon you will be able to find your way to make it come true. 

Thank you .
i will treasure you guys a lot.
Because without you , maybe i will give up easily, 

SO

Let's back ! After
P-Stage i go back to prepare at M-Stage !
For the final.
I will singing this songs with Hiro-san as well :)
Yesh hiroaki kato-san ! 



Awesome !
Final stage is awesome !
There's Hanabi everywhere.
And i can meet everyone here at the stage.
It's a challange for me to singing final song in here.
Lot of instrument become one..
But it's give a goosebumps as well.
Ennichisai this year, i'm so lucky i have an opportunity to take a part.
I'm lucky enough to be in the same stage with wonderful musician
wonderful people

I will treasure this memories a lot.
And thanks again for YOU my SPECIAL  !

This is Miracle..
This is the power of LOVE you give me !

Thank you !

Let's start today with Smile
and END it with a BIG SMILE

Lot of Love,
YUMI

I Lost My Voice / Direct Selling Schedule

Hello Dreamers !
So on the last blog i said i lost my voice . 
And yes up until now my voice is not come back yet.
I can't hit my high range as usual.
My voice is a bit hoarse.
I don't know what i have to do.
I can't practice as much as i want.
And when you can't do something you always love.. it's make me really depressed.

It's started 2 days before Sakura Matsuri ( 30 April - 01 May )
So last night before it's happened , because it's our last Practice i really pull myself too much.
So the day after practice which is the day after practice after (????) i eat my lunch suddenly my throat really weird.
It's hot and itchy in the same time.
So i drink lot of water because i think at that time
" DANGER , I WILL BE SICK "
so i drink a lot of water at that day.
but sadly my immune system already breakdown.
So i catch a cold and cough unstoppable.
At that time i only can pray and eat medicine , go to doctor..
But it's not helping AT ALL..



Until at the day of my performance which is 01 May 2016
I still Cough , Lucky Cikarang Weather is humid , so i think it's really help me.
BUT my prediction is WRONG
I can't stop coughing at the night.
So i eat a lot of WARM CANDY
so if you see some of video , my tongue have a color since i eat lot of candy to make it's stop.

LUCKY !
When i'm on the stage i don't feel anything at all.
And yes , I did so much mistake . 
And i don't want to watch my video at all.
WHY?
because somehow i think i'm a Perfectionist one.
If i said it's not good enough i will be stressed out.
So i think it's better not to see it.
 ( Even when some people said it's still acceptable )

Everything is going right , until...

I GO DOWN FROM THE STAGE

I couging endlessly, i can't stop.
I don't know how to stop it until i feel like i want to throw up
My throat is really hurt.
When i go home.. My voice is 0
Not 0 , I still can use it from my stomach but it's not can be heard.
I still have to go to office since i can't OFF too much, because i will have the day OFF for Ennichisai.
Some people is really ignnorant at my office.
Even tough i'm sick they not try to treat me like a sick person.
even i go to floor 3 with stairs.. and i cough again . lol 
So i decided to have a bedrest for one day and going to doctor.
Doctor said my vocal chords was hit by cough.
I means because i cough so much so it's make my vocal chords hurt.
And yep. It's make me lost my voice..



And now , my voice slowly recovery , but you can listen if my voice is not a normal voice that i used to be.
I wish it will come back soon. 
I wish i will be good at Ennichisai.
Tomorrow i will go to Jakarta to Rehearsal. I'm nervous since my voice is shaky when i hit high melody one. haha.
Wish me luck guys !

And now, i learn from this. i will never push myself too hard if i'm sick.
My voice is my investment. I can't keep up my dreams if something happened to my voice.
I barely can't imagine how if i lost my voice for the rest of my life.
I have a dream , and my dream is not an ordinary one.
You have a dream , and everyone have a dream..
and every each of you have a dream .. not an ordinary dream..
so keep up the good work but remember about your health also.
because your health is your biggest investment. 
So i wish everyone who read this will be healthy and do their best to pursue their dreams !

i will update my blog again on tuesday.
Since starting tomorrow i will go to jakarta and i can't update my blog/

And there's something i want to tell you.
So this is my preview for my mini album collaboration with Ito-san
which will be selling at Ennichisai.

Here is my Direct Selling Schedule :

2015 ~ The Year of Happiness ~

Hello Dreamers !
Sorry for late update , so today i want to thanks to god !
I have a beautiful year again this year.
There's so many thing happened this year .
I'm glad and thankful that god give me a chance so i still can alive and can do everything that i never done before.
Met so many friends which is i can tell them they are my family right now.
I can take a part to something i never done before , like become a singer for Ennichisai Movie theme song. It's really such an honor.


It's all started when i'm still and active at youtube as czkim 
It's stand for Chezzy Kim
why that name ? Before i'm joining Japan World , i was so in love with korean culture ( Well i still do love korean culture haha )
So i decided that i will use that name.
At that time , i really love uploading lot of stuff , when i think of it , i feel disgusting about myself/
it's just too funny and such a weird of me.


( it's already gone , i banned by youtube now haha )

Why i started my youtube account ?
Did you know justin bieber ? I thought that i can be the one of Youtube singer as well.
Maybe someday , someone will see me on youtube so i started using youtube at 2010.
but then after 2012 there's nothing change.
So i decided that i have to change as well.
i want to be a singer and i want to fix my life as well..
why ?
so i'm the last child from 5 children.
All of my brother and sister already married , and what left is me now
Did you ever heard my Higher song's ?
There's some part of lyrics said
" Jakaruta no kensou no naka hitori watashi o sodateta "
It's mean " in the big city of jakarta ( actually i was raised in bandung haha ) she is the one who raise me "
Yesh. I born in single parent family , so i need to do my best to my mom.
everyone want their best for their parent.
Yesh , sometimes i always arguing with my mom , since we looks like big sister and little sister now.
i remember when i was bullied a lot in elementary and junior high, i never tell my mom or anyone. that because i don't want my mom worried about me. besides i don't feel like it bothers me ( or maybe i pretend that it was oke )
This year , i told my mom that i've been bullied for several years. 
not only at elemantary school or high school. 
but also in playground ( Seriously ? Yeah Seriously )
My mom was so surprised .
and
At elemantary school , yeah i'm such a brat since i really hate this girl. because of her no one wanna talk to me in the whole school , so i had a chance to do something bad. i feel sorry about it after.
And i remember a lot when someone fall and make her forehead cut by something and everyone was blaming on me. i can't said anything . i just like said this on my mind " am i doing that ? but i'm in different circle with her . i have supernatural "
i remember at that time i was in grade 4th of my elemantary school.
And did you know what happened now ?
They maybe already forget about what they did to me.
I forgive them but i can't forget .
So i want to said if you bullying someone now , you have to think .. that you make a big impact to them negative or positive way , so just stop bullying.
because maybe you will forget it someday or later but not the victims.
Go said apologize may help it.
but.. some of them won't said that . because they never think they are bullying someone.
back to the story haha

i want to fix my life so my mom will be have a good life as well
is not about my dreams , it's about my mom as well..
and it's not all about my mom..
it's about my dream as well..
since i was a kid , i have a dream that i will have a big concert !
i always listen to mariah carey , whitney houston and celine dion .
i remember i'm so crazy about NSYCN ? how to write it again ?
I think that's why i can't sing low tone so well , i guess it's because i never practice it since the beginning.


(photo by pitra)

So since i want to change , i need to go out to the world which never i imagine before.
going to jakarta for join competition .
it's been a while since i'm in competition.
my last time is maybe around 2003 and i'm shaking because of nervous and forget a whole lyrics.
it's happened in lawson competition as well. 
it's such embrassing but i learn from that .

Since i want to change , i join lot of competition but never win or always be a runner up.
Join in the band. 
I'm sorry i can't going with you guys now.
I'm sorry to ruin everything.
Thank you for give me some place to grow..
Thank you so much Aozora band.


And here i am right now..
2013 first met with my producer as well as my manager
He keep believe in me..
no matter how not good i am..
he always believe that i can do it..
it's really hard to keep trust from people, so i will do much as i can and i dont want make them to dissapoint.
to everyone who support me ,
i don't want to let them down.

Some people said that i have to quit with something uncertain like this.
they said you only wasted some money. 
but now i think they wrong.
it's not a lot but i receive some money from this , slowly but sure my mom life and my life can be fix.
we are a little bit steady now, but not too well.
some people will try to make you down and make you give up.
but the one who can make a decision is you..
you are the one who can stop it or keep on it..
sometimes i want to stop.. sometimes i think they right..
but , when i remember the whole thing that i came to this so far ..
i can't give up easily..
i don't want to give up.. besides my mom is support me, i don't want let her down.

This 2015 i met Keion as well..
I meet a new Family .
From Stranger to became Family it's so fast especially for me.
I found something warmer , having fun with them is such a beautiful moment .
And it's such a moment that i'm always waiting for when i go to Jakarta.
I have new little sister and new little brother.
I have lot of new okaa-san and new father as well.
We sharing music and life.
Sometimes i feel grown up around them.
and my friend who help me a lot this year as well !
J-BAND BANDUNG !


I go to japan 3 times this year.
Lucky !
And this year i have lot of job as well.
I can buy guitar from it .
I feel grateful.
This year is super year for me.
God thank you for this year, i'm sorry for always complaining .
i'm sorry for the mistake what have i done this year.
i wish next year i will become a good person. more a good person.
i wish everything will goes so well..
i wish i can meet another year .. 
i wish i will grown up older..
I wish for everyone a happy new year !
let's do our best again this year !

Let's start today with a SMILE
and end up with a BIG SMILE !
