A Festive February
February is here and it looks like it’s going to be a pleasant month with Chinese New Year festivities and the AKB48 x JKT48 concert just a day after that (20 Feb 2015).
It’s going to be almost 3 years since AKB48 came to Indonesia and I recall with very fond memories of that period when Sasshi went around “memancing!” (fishing) on national TV. (Youtube link) Perhaps, this time round it will be even more memorable! And I’m certainly looking forward to Rena Nozawa’s return to Jakarta.
Are you excited? Have you been preparing for the concert?
(If you are one of those that are coming to Jakarta for the first time and do plan to watch a theater, do check out our guides to watching the theater, and also remember to apply for a Super far ticket!)
Speaking about birthdays, here are the next series of JKT48 members born in February. Twitter user @razgriz2520 has also kindly contributed photos of the birthday girls. (Thank you very much!!) Interestingly enough, there are only 4 members born this month (out of 67 members).
Haruka Nakagawa (Haruka) – Team J and 4 Gulali
Born 10 February 1992. Turns 23 this year.
Rizka Khalila (Yukka) – Trainee
Born 19 February 1999. Turning 16 this year.
Ratu Vienny Fitrilya (Viny) – Team KIII
Born 23 February 1996. Turns 19 this year.
Fransisca Saraswati Puspa Dewi (Sisca) – Team T
Born 24 February 2000. Turning 15 this year.
JOT now allows theater goers to take a 2shot polaroid photo (cheki) with members who are performing on their birthday show for a price of 80,000 IDR. With so many members birthday around the concert date, maybe it’s a good chance for you to get one if you are planning on staying around!
(P.S: If you have a couple of nice members photos and you’d like to contribute for next month’s March babies post, do tweet me via @shouraii and I’ll do my best to put them up!)
