Time passed by so fast. It’s been a year since I had the best time of my life!
Well, this was another “great escape.” My parents didn’t know anything about it. So I have to leave the house at 12AM pretending that I’ll go to work, which I did, but only to take a rest then at 2am started traveling from Clarkfield to SM Pampanga. Met some new friends, Gerald and Berlin, and we are with my usual escape-buddy Anne (Usi). At 6am we rode a bus, route is Avenida, then rode LRT (Light Rail Transit) for the first time! And went a 10 years bus trip to South mall. Total travel time was more than 3 hours. We arrive at SM Southmall at pass 9AM.
Didn’t notice what time the event started but it was pretty late than the time expected. And we almost didn’t made it to the first 100 who gets to sign their stuff. I’m the 97th person! *woooooh!* The event was fun I had loads of laugh! One big surprised is when I won a photo op! Gerald and Anne got picked first then me! Lucky us ha? At first I thought I’ll be left out, I’ll be so bummed if that happens imagined I haven’t got any sleep since 12AM?! But when they called my name it was pretty casual, like I wasn’t excited at all. But believe me I was THE HAPPIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD! Like if I was in my room and someone told me I won a photo op, the next day you’ll see someone patching our roof top!
Before the photo op they did the usual program, my favorite part was the Q&A. I love it when they asked him what’s his favorite Filipino food [x] and if he knows any tagalog words [x]!
Anyway, of course, the best part was the photo op, at first I got all excited because the announcer said it will be an individual photo op! And I was like akjdhsakjdhsdhkjas!!!! But then, due to the fact that they started the program pretty late and they will have another mall tour right after that, it end up 10 people in a photo .. *sigh* And I end up 3 person away from him.. *sigh* but of course I’m still grateful! It still don’t happened to everyone! But I am desperate to get a photo next to him. Maybe, I’ll do when he gets back! :D
Now during the signing. Luckily, my nerves didn’t got the best of me.. maybe. Well, I was supposed to tell him how much I love him and how he inspired me. I even tried telling those words in just 3 secs! But I end up saying “Hi!” and then “Thanks!” and that’s it.. :|
About the handshake. I told my self that I will make sure I’ll shake hands with him during the signing. So I did that at the start as soon as I approached the table. I was so starstruck that I didn’t know what I’m doing. I didn’t notice that after he signed the album he was reaching his hands up for another handshake but stupid-me I went away from the table without shaking his hands again!!!!! DANG!!!! His body guard called me up and I saw his reaction he was smiling at me and its killing me!! HE. IS. SO. CUTE. I was going back, but they are like, “no its okay now..” Of course for me its not okay. That’s another face-to-face with him and I let it slipped away! :(((((((
At the end of the day I was still happy! The best day of my life! After the event I got to meet other Archies too, which is something I always love!
