Interesting titbit from FOD:
David is in the middle of a writing session in London with a bigtime songwriter and up-and-coming producers. The writer is extremely successful, with numerous #1 songs for many different artists worldwide. David is also going to be writing with other top London writers.
We are allowed to give ONE hint and it has to be vague and sleuth-resistant.
HINT: This songwriter has collaborated with James Morrison.

Click HERE to readddd! Thanks Yvette (I’m a banana too yay!) Thanks Gowri for informing! <3
LOLLL yvette, you crack me up. seriously. im like..giggling and laughing like a fool reading this. HAHAHA.
New Fact #5: David likes chicken, but not ham.
New fact #6: Ray, David’s manager, likes Japan… and everything Japanese.
New fact #7: David doesn’t like the crispy outer layer that comes with fried food
“Too spicy?” she asked.
“No,” David shook his head, and then put his chopsticks down. “I don’t really like the skin… sorry,”
“Oh, you mean the batter? Well, fried food is always cooked like that…”
David smiled sadly, “Yeah, I know…”
New fact #8: David really doesn’t like it when people badmouth others (so please don’t criticize anybody in front of him, EVER)
New fact #9: David doesn’t like ice.
His face fell, and then he said in a really timid voice, “Oh… but I don’t like ice.”
And here are some excerpts worth mentioning (actually i wish i can just paste the whole story here hahaha)
The very first thing I saw was a pair of wide and extremely gorgeous, hazel-green eyes.
And they were staring right back at me.
I completely froze in my seat.
I could feel my heart starting to pound in my chest, my jaw going slack, my knees going weak…
Oh my gosh, those eyes.
Let me just say that those eyes were the most unique, most mysterious pair of eyes I’d ever seen; there was just… just something about those eyes that immediately had you TRAPPED in their gaze, that you could NOT look away even if you wanted to…
He turned his attention to Yuen-See’s drink. “And… what’s that?”
Yuen-See was drinking lo han kou.
“What’s that white, round stuff at the bottom?” David asked.
I giggled before I could stop myself. Oh, gosh. White, round stuff…
“It’s longan,” Yuen-See replied.
longan tastes like caramel and popcorn LOLLLL
“Yes!” the pretty woman in yellow finally started talking. “The barley you’re drinking? It’s good for you when you’re heaty. Oh, wait, do you know what heaty means?”
Only in Malaysia and Singapore is the word ‘heaty’ recognized in the English dictionary.
I didn’t know ‘heaty’ only existed in our English dictionary here. Honestly.
and LOLL longan tastes like caramel and popcorn? I never realised that hahaha!Hmm.i feel like drinking longan now. its been some time since i had it..
“Oh, well, tonight, I’m actually gonna be trying… um… wait, what was it again?” David asked, turning to Yuen-See with this adorable, sheepish expression on his face that made me want to smile like a huge dork again. “What am I eating tonight…?”
“Nasi lemak,” Yuen-See replied.
“Yeah!” David said, and then that enthusiastic grin of his was back, and Heaven knows why but the whole place just seemed to light up around me each time he smiled like that.
Then he suddenly asked, “What is, uh… nasi… lemak… again? Is it healthy for you?”
Oh my gosh, the way he’d pronounced nasi lemak… like, “naaah-see… (pause)… luh-muckkkhh…”
IT… WAS… SO… CUTE!!!!
I was going to explain to him that the rice and sauce was cooked in a lot of oil, and it was really delicious but really bad for you at the same time – but then David suddenly spoke, “Wait, so it’s… ‘fat rice’…?” and he just had the most baffled look ever on his face.
I couldn’t fight it any longer – I burst out laughing.
Can’t wait for part 3!
It’s HIP! It’s NEW! It’s COOL!

New David vlog from UK
Fan account of the Paul O Grady Show
by Kayleigh90 from IDF!
So, I went to the recording of this today and ooooooh my goooooosh, it was amazing!! I’m literally going to post a step by step account of what went down so if you don’t want to know and you want to wait until it airs on Thursday, then don’t read ahead, otherwise please do ’cause I’m on such a high right now.
So, in the days leading up to the show I had butterflies really bad, but I didn’t actually know 100% whether he was going to be there and still didn’t know when I was queuing up today! But theeeen, with it obviously being a TV studio all of these celebrities were pulling up outside and at one point I saw a blue van drive past and pull into the back. Now the only reason I took any notice of this is because of what a member of David’s band said about them travelling in a van, not a bus and there was a man in the front seat looking out of the window who looked a LOT like Eli. So I was like AAHH, but then Nah, it can’t be. Haha. Then, I saw a girl in the line next to me with a sign saying ‘Welcome David’ and then it hit me. He was here. Then, oh my gosh all these feelings started to kick in. Butterflies, I felt reaaaally ridiculously nervous and sick. I’ve never felt anything like it and I have no idea what came over me!
The interviewer (Paul) always has pictures of his guests on his desk and someone that sort of relates to the guest, so when I saw a picture of David and Jeff I almost died! We were on the fourth row and REALLY close to the actual stage thing – with it being a small studio, I almost fell over with excitement.
Theeen, the moment came. DAVID CAME ON STAGE!!!!! I.could.not.breathe. He’s so little and adorable and he was smiling a lot and it was completely swoonworthy. When he saw the other girls sign he was like “Aww, how did you know I was here?” Ohh, we know David. It took me a while to catch my breath and he was all like “Oooh, it’s chilly in here” and then later said that he could feel something blowing on him that was making him cold. It’s weird ’cause I did as well but no one else seemed to. Hmm. Anyway, he sang Crush and of course it was amazing!! It was so great hearing him live as this is like the first time I’ve ever seen him in person. It was perfect and adorable. The band was there but he sang to a backing track. Still amazing all the same! And then he was interviewed which was really adorable! He was so comfortable up there and even Paul said he was confident for his age, and he was all like shaking his head and going ‘Noo, noo’ Lol. The interview was fun, nothing we don’t really know already but he did his cute babbling and I loved it!! The way he was talking about singing Angels at Newcastle and that the song is so huge over here, but it was very well received with the crowd, and which song he likes most on the album (Don’t Let Go, obviously!) he was really into it and Paul commented on how enthusiastic he is! He also said he was loving his time in the UK and talked about all the different accents he had stumbled upon. He was very complimentary of the McFly boys and said that he had heard about their past of getting naked on stage and luckily they hadn’t done it this time.
I just have to point out that I’m really not exaggerating when I say I was completely starstruck. I know all of you fellow Archies understand. I couldn’t breathe half the time and he’s so incredibly stunning in real life. Jeff was there, standing on the sidelines and I’ve never actually seen his reaction to when David is performing or is on stage or whatever, but it was really nice to see. He was so proud. So was I. They were talking about his time on AI and then they showed a clip of when his sang DLTSGDOM and obviously he couldn’t watch. Haha, he was just sitting there and then he talked to Paul during the tape. I couldn’t take my eyes off David and when this clip was playing, I was completely tearing up. I thought at one point I was going to break down because I couldn’t actually believe I was in the same room as he and with DLTS.. being the song that actually made me become a fan in the first place I was just staring at him and listening to the song and it was AMAZING!
He was also sat on the couch during the other guests interview, which was pretty funny. I can’t say I looked at her once, I was too mesmorised by David. He was really laughing at what she was saying and everytime he smiled, I died a little inside. It made me melt when he smiled and laughed. Also, at one point HE LOOKED RIGHT AT ME! (that deserves capitals). It was when Paul said ‘give it up for David’ and everyone clapped and cheered. I screamed really loud and held my hands fairly high and clapped, and he looked right at me and did his sort of mixture of ‘Awoh, haha’ I swear I was completely flustered after that. INCREDIBLE!
Everyone sort of went Awww when he said he was 18 and I remember hearing quite a lot of people (mainly non fans) saying ‘he’s cute isn’t he’ during his interview. LOL! Yes, yes he is. So, anyway after the interview he was literally on the stage non-stop. They did a little thing at the end with some animals (can’t really say I was paying attention to anything other than our David) and he was practising his lines but couldn’t see them on the autocue and you could tell he was sort of worrying about it ’cause he kept going ‘I can’t see the lines’ and was really squinting at the thing. I really wanted to get up there and help him! In the end, David introduced the animals and Paul said the lines. Then it was over. I desperately wanted to meet him but they were trying to clear the place out so I was a little gutted, but he did speak to a couple of girls (jealous!) and he was really apologetic when he was told that he couldn’t sign or take pictures or anything. All in all, it was lovely and I’m on such a high! I love him more if that’s possible!!
Oh I also forgot one part. There was a warm up man during the intervals and before the show and he swore at one point. I was all like
(oh and I know that makes no sense and I really babbled, but I can’t help it..) ‘Don’t swear, David’s here!!!!’ but I don’t really think he noticed and the man was making jokes about the animals and they were quite bad. Really funny, but I was sort of like ‘oh my gosh, please don’t say anything too bad ’cause David’s over there” Lol, I don’t think he noticed though.
More HM screencaps!
"...so you'll do it?!"
"....oh no, when I called you..."
