“A person who can make other excited with his stare.He who can open a sweet world of imagination with his quick smile.Someone who can intoxicate others in a short meeting.Most of all, someone with the heart to respect and care for others. Without the scent of one’s heart. He can be handsome man but not attractive. Exactly who am I? Is my scent penetrating by someone?”

To become one with the people I know through the concert. Passion to act memorable character. Passion to become someone you are proud of in front of others. Passion to fall in love like a puppy. All of these passions together make me. I breathe today.”
“LOVE, LIKE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN HURT.LIVE, LIKE TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO LIVE.No hesitation as if never been heart broken or never had fear before…like today is the last day, I will love.From the moment I meet her.”
