    Cant wait for March 26..eeeeeeeeeeeee

  2. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkk!!! Holy cow!!!!
    Luv luv luv luv that guy! When did he do it??? When did he have the time!!!!
    Just can’t think of enough superlatives for that guy!!! :) :) :)

    Thank you Sheba for posting the news!!!! :)
    Thank you Shirley for waking me about the news!!!! :)

    THANK YOU DAVID !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx !!!

    H A P P Y D A Y !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :D :) :D :) :D

  3. Loving the album cover too!!!

    David is so good to us!! We are sooo blessed!! Happy new year everyone!!!! :D :D

  4. How many songs I wonder. My greedy-self thinking. A WHOLE album?
    Tapping my feet all the way to 26 March!! (lucky number by the way – any way you look at it.) :D

  5. Something old..Something new..Something borrowed..Something Blue..Have a good week…it all makes sense now. :)

  6. Oh David you lovely lovely idiot.. you marvellous donkey of a boy :-) <3<3 Omigosh I'm tearing up. T_T I must have done something good in my life to deserve this.

  7. Woohoo! Love the album cover – so young-ish, pop-ish and clean. So so much better than the vampire-ish BEGIN album. :-) Hope this album carries new sound and new singing style.

  8. Yes liying, you definitely have done something good – like scolding him and bringing him to his senses. :D Joke!
    I’m actually so touched that he had been planning all this for us before he left, and never breathing a word about it.. Talk about the strong and silent type. :)

  9. Akang

    Yes, I agree it’s a really nice album cover. But I wouldn’t compare it to the BEGIN cover, which I love. Imho they both have their merits. :)

    Unlike you, I don’t expect this album to have a new sound or a new singing style. I don’t think he had enough time then to do so. I think this album is another precious gift to us fans so that we have new music from him during his absence. That, to me, is an admirable gesture and I really love him for it.

    I believe his “new sound and new singing style” will be worked on after he is back when his focus is less scattered.

  10. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Agreed Akang, thats a fantabulous pic! Its nice to see David smiling once again on the album cover :)

    Personally I dont know what to expect, just wanna be surprised by the man himself when I get to hear the cd.

  12. Sorry Trace, guess that was way too early to sms you about the good news. Hope I didnt startled you from your sleep :)

    Sheba, thanks for being on top with this wonderful piece of news :) Being a night owl paid off in this case haha

  13. From the OS

    “The first single, “Don’t Run Away”, produced by British music producers The Nexus (David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein), will be serviced to the AC Radio format in February”

    Hope it’ll be a big hit :)

  14. Shirley

    You didn’t just startle me in my sleep with your sms – you shocked me! No, it wasn’t too early to wake me – any time is good David-time. :) I of course jumped out of bed immediately and ran to the computer. The things David makes us do! :)

    I like DRA. Thanks for posting it! :)

    Has anyone pre-ordered the album?

  15. Haha Shirley, you’re welcome :-) Love bearing great news.

    Tracy – my sentiments exactly haha!

    Li Ying, love your terms of endearment for David lol!

    Akang, I concur re the album cover. Seriously. I think they did really good with the picture and the cover art. Way to go team!

    Trace, how did you know it was me that posted, hee. Anyways, yes!!! I have pre-ordered from WowHD – Here’s the link if anyone’s interested:-

    http://www.wowhd.com.hk/search?q=david+archuleta+no+matter+how+far&t=music

    Basically I think it comes up to around RM55-58 inclusive shipping cost depending on the exchange rate. I didn’t check amazon or other places cause WOWHD have been really fast and reliable the last few times I’ve used them so just gonna stick with them :-)

  16. Sheba

    Haha! I recognise your way of writing! I can almost SEE your sweet smiling face through your words! Lol! :D

    Thanks for the link! :)
    I’ll be the old faithful and wait for Amazon.

  17. liying

    Will med school be starting this coming week?
    Won’t you be missing your idiot of a donkey-boyfriend? Lol! :D

  18. Ehhh very goods news; I need new material for my music player right about now haha. On a more serious note I really like David’s watch (?) on the cover.

    PS: My copy of Forevermore is still out there with someone haha, I hope they’re not tired of holding on to it. Is there a feasible way for me to go and pick it from someone, seeing as (I’m just supposing) there isn’t going to be a gathering anytime soon?

  19. Lol Sheba. :-) I maintain a slightly dysfunctional relationship with David. Hence the terms of endearment. haha

    auntie Trace I start after CNY. I’ve been missing D for a long time. I suppose I could find some like-minded archies to spazz with in uni :P
    If anyone asks me “eh got boyfriend yet ah?” this CNY I’m so tempted to say “Ya. His name’s David and he’s in Chile at the moment” haha

    I agree with Zach about D’s watch on the cover. So glad he’s not having a monochromatic cover like previously; red, white, green. I might just paint my nails blue to match haha. Oh and I love D’s fluffy fluffy hair.

    I like Don’t Run Away. It came out on my b’day last year. hehe
    I hear tell Wait is going to be on the album. (unconfirmed) David did say they were re-releasing the ATE songs in the US.
    So that’d be 5 songs down? That’s about half an album.
    Well David, Lady V and Dapo were busy working on stuff before he went on the asian tour if you all remember.

    I was just scrolling on tumblr. Someone found some possible songs?

  20. Dear ArchuFriends,

    I would like to ask for help. There is this poll – the EL one – http://www.theentertainmentlifestyle.com/2012/12/vote-now-your-newsmaker-at.html, for the title of Foreign Act Newsmaker of the Year.

    Am aware that some of you have helped in putting David in the #1 spot right now. For that I am thankful.

    BUT WE NEED MORE. Right now we are a critical level. The 140K lead yesterday is now down to 75K. At the current rate, the next contender will overtake us by less than 8 days. The poll runs until Feb 13.

    Personally, I really don’t like long-winded polls like this. And to be honest I think repetitive voting is stupid (excuse my profanity).

    THE THING IS: I just can let someone else get that title of PH Foreign Act Newsmaker for 2012 simply because I passionately feel to my gut and my bones that it rightfully belongs to David!

    Of all the times, of all the titles and for all the things he did in Manila for 2012, he DESERVES that title. For all the things he did for us while in Manila, there shouldn’t even be a contest.

    THE OTHER THING IS: there is a group that is likewise fanatic with their Korean idol.

    I know that David does not give a hoot about such things
    I know it will not amount to anything.
    But it is the principle of the thing…

    So if you share with my passion that David deserves the title and can spare 10 minutes daily to actively vote on the poll, we would appreciate it very much if you could join us.

    Also, if you could please onpass this message to other sites & other countries, that would be great!

    Thanks a lot! :)

  21. Hi JR! How are you? Long time no see! :)

    David definitely deserves that title – no question about that. I have been voting already. Will keep on at it until he runs away with that title. I have contacted some peeps to do the same.

    Thank you for all that you’ve been doing for David, whether he likes it or not. :D

  22. Zach! Long time no see! :)

    Haha I dig that watch too. In fact the whole ensemble looks good!

    I don’t understand what you meant about your Forevermore cd. Did you lend it to someone and didn’t get it returnrd to you? Or did you mean you have not received your copy after you purchased it through Aam?

  23. liying

    There has been so much speculation re the tracklist that I’m quite pengsan. :)
    That link you posted gave me shivers too. Not sure if they are shivers of happiness or shivers of anxiety!

    Yes you do that – go find some archu-friends in uni. Many Aam’ers have gone to uni the past few years – don’t know where – maybe you can track them down! :D

    …now, go vote!! :)

  24. Hey JR :-) I agree these sort of polls are quite stupid. But I put in some votes for D for you guys.

    Auntie Trace, Lee Min Ho is from the boy band SHINee. And I happen to know this because my best friend has a crush on him. We were just trading insults towards each other’s crushes last week. :P He’s kinda scrawny looking… compared to D

    BTW you guys!! Check out this vid Ellyna made!! She compiled snippets of vids of D in KL :-)

    Looooook 1:55 !!! He waved back at me! after pointing at me! I didn’t know that. Seems like my frantic waving worked. :-D Omyhecks this made my life :-) I mean him pointing at me already made my life but this kinda further made it if that’s possible.

    I am not delusional. I remember it was the part with ” a wonder wall of stars” in TMH, clear as day. :-)
    Don’t you just love this adorably awkward boy? :-)

  25. Lol liying!! You’re not delusional?! Yes of course you’re not…. you see everything-David in the right perspective! Lol!! :D

    Sigh…watching David’s live shows, especially the KL ones, always breaks my heart even after so long…not sure whether it’s in a happy way or in a sad way… thanks for that vid liying. Well done Ellyna!

    Ah…so THAT’S the secret…frantic waving!! I paid so much $$$ for the front row, and he didn’t even batt an eyelid at me! Darn!!… ah no, that’s not true…he DID try stretching out (like a whole body stretch) to try touch my hand during TOUCH MY HAND since I was killing myself stretching (I think he took pity on me) , but if he had succeeded, I would have toppled over that stupid barrier a second later.

    So that’s Lee Min Ho. I googled and saw him. Hmmm…sorry, no heart connection. And his name is not David Archuleta. :D

  26. Sheba!!!!

    Nadal is IN CHILE for his 1st ATP tournament after a whole 8 months’ absence!!! And he looks so fit and handsome!!

    Sorry guys. Off-topic haha! Well, not really. I did mention the word C H I L E ! :D

  27. Trace, “David didn’t even bat an eyelid at me!”….hahaha… Absolutely as first row of VVIP fans were particularly under his nose. Ah! 5th row and beyond is a different story! He could see all those ANGEL fans including Liying and myself jumping, waving and singing along with him. ;)

    Lee Min Ho is an actor (City Hunter) and not a singer. He is the colleague of David – under BENCH label in the Philippines. A handsome, 6ft 1″ tall dude. Woohoo… what a competition! I shall vote for both. :)

  28. Akang

    Go on…make me jealous Boo! Lol! :D Next time I’m joining you at the 5th row then he can stare at me right in the face! :D

    No no no..you can’t vote for both!! You’ll be neutralising the numbers! You must vote only for David!!!! :P

  29. Hi JR, Nice to see you here. Not a fan at all of polls but in this case I will do my part to add up the numbers for David :)

    LOL Akang! I just knew you will say that cos I can sense you have a bit of crush on LMH. But I dare say David sure looks better in those Bench pictures compared to LMH :D :D :D

  30. OMG!! Trace!! Our two favs are in the same country!!! woohoo! Too bad its in the other side of the world though.

    Re the poll, thanks JR for bringing it here. Drop by anytime :-)

    I’m actually surrounded by peeps who are into K-Pop and Korean drama so I’ve heard of Min Ho. But man, the Pinoy “foreign act newsmaker for 2012″ has got to be David, come on!! What with Nandito Ako, amazing duet appearance with Ogie and Regine, Forevermore the album, Bench endorsement, Vangie ads!!! I mean seriously!! That title should rightfully be his. Min Ho can take the title for 2013 before D comes back and claims it again in 2014 and um forevermore….. haha!

    So lets vote guys. He totally deserves it.

    http://www.theentertainmentlifestyle.com/2012/12/vote-now-your-newsmaker-at.html

  31. LOL Sheba, you’re right, LMH can take the title for 2013 :) :)

    Dang!!!! David is still slightly behind LMH in that poll.

    AKANG! Stop voting for LMH, David needs your votes more :D :D

  32. I am still belatedly spazzing over David pointing then smiling AND waving back at me. *sigh* Goodness!! this boy is distracting

    Aiyo! When is this poll going to be over?! I appreciate D going out of his way for us but running off to act in a soap is NOT something we should encourage. Whether it be in the Philippines, Malaysia or the US or anywhere. David is a singer-songwriter and I’d like him to be treated as such. Which is why I’m super annoyed with all these polls. I only threw in some votes because you asked.

    Auntie Akang are you sure the Min Ho in SHINee and the actor Min Ho aren’t the same person? If they aren’t then these Koreans don’t seem to have very many names to choose from. lol

    Sheba and auntie Trace, glad to hear Nadal is back in the ATP. It’s been some time since we’ve seen him play Federer. Don’t quite like Murray’s style, he’s a bit uptight. But Federer got a bit sloppy the last match with Murray. That one-handed back hand isn’t doing him any good.

    http://davidarchuleta.com/home/?p=5369

    Check out Don’t Run Away on the OS. They cleaned it up a bit :-)

  33. liying

    I agree totally with what you said : polls, soap operas wherever they may be etc…. My stand is: I just want to be supportive of our dear supportive archu-friends, To cut the long story short, I too want David to be less scatter-brained and focus on his music. Having said that, I must say that I have a strong desire to be supportive of him whatever he does – how ever stupid his decisions are….such is my undauntable and blind ODD. :( … tears…crying for meself.

    Ho Min or Min Ho….I’m quite confused myself. :( I’ve had to keep on going back to make sure I get the words in the right order. :D

    I’ve never liked Murray either. Can’t explain why. Federer’s very dependable backhand did not work. Neither has his serve. Pete Sampras said recently: The players don’t miss Nadal. The fans do.
    And ESPN said: When Nadal doesn’t play, tennis tournaments are less energetic, less historic and alot less fun. I can’t agree more. :)

    Checked out David’s OS. DRA sounds the same to me. :D

  34. LOL… yeah!! I’m still voting for these 2 adorable guys (tall vs shorty)!! It looks like the tall guy is in the lead. *whistling*

    Liying – Lee Min Ho is the actor of City Hunter and latest was Faith. No idea who the other guy in SHINee. LMH is cute, handsome and TALL !! ;-)

    I just checked out David’s OS and was tickled pink by Kari’s message regarding fan mail. LOL… It must be Trace and Liying flooding David’s mail box with their undying LOVE letters. Hey you two, you better stop it otherwise David cannot focus on what he needs to do (what was he supposed to do??) :-)

  35. Auntie Akang, I just checked. The one in Shinee is Choi Min Ho not Lee haha.
    No wonder David’s behind if you’re voting for both of them. Wouldn’t you think being shorter would make D more adorable and squishable?

    Hey! I haven’t written to D since last November, I don’t know about auntie Trace hehe. But admittedly my letters are quite long. Hmm… you don’t suppose he complained to Kari about me do you? *gasp* Fine! Be that way Archuleta!! That’s not gonna stop me kacau-ing you! :P

    Auntie Trace, I don’t think I’m as supportive of all of D’s decisions as you are. Do you think it’s wiser to let him know what we think of his decisions or to just support him throughout?

    There’s nothing wrong with Federer’s serve. But he’s the only one I know still using a one-handed back hand. It’s harder to control the top spin and it doesn’t give you much power. That’s why nowadays we all learn to use a double-handed back hand. :-) Do you play?

    DRA sounds cleaner lah! :-D

  36. I was just watching Ellyna’s vid again. Good gosh! David is so sexy :P Is it me or did he do some pretty badass moves on that stage? GAHHH… I don’t think I’ve said this before but he’s got a nice tush. :P *smacks self* dirty archie thoughts. Omg his expression during A Thousand Miles was so precious :-D Thank goodness I wasn’t near enough to the stage to see all that.

  37. liying

    Being tinier definitely makes him more cute and squishable. (ppppss…I’ave always preferred shorter men in real life – not shorter than I of cos haha. They are more in control of their limbs. Longer, I mean taller, men are too gangly and don’t know what to do with their legs and arms lol)

    I haven’t written to him for some time – I just want him to focus on his missionary work and hurry back!
    My letters to him are short and to the point. I don’t think he has time for rambles. :)

    Put it this way, liying. His decisions are not within our control. Abc want him to do this and Xyz want him to do that. So it’s better we leave him to make his own decisions, which of course cannot satisfy everyone. It is his own career afterall. If we get annoyed with his decisions or disagree with them, we might land up not supporting him, which I believe is not our intention, and his career may go kaput as a result. I may not like his decisions, but I will still be supportive of him, as long as he keeps singing new good songs to me.

  38. liying

    What’s wrong with your eyes? You need specs or somethin?? :D
    Took you a long time to notice he’s got a nice tush haha!! Makes you want to spank him where it matters, doesn’t it?! :D

    Fed’s serve used to be unreceivable. Not so in the last tournament – but I admit I did not watch whole matches – why would I want to do that when Nadal is not playing!! :D

  39. Akang

    What’s this with you about TALL guys?! If they are not careful onstage, they may topple over! :P

    You’re the best person to go to for feeding us with K-pop and pop stars and drama. This Korean thing seems to be getting really big internationally, not forgetting the Gangnam thing. I admit I’m not into any of it. :(

  40. WHAT??? LMH is still leading? Aiyoooooh looks like David is not the only one having fanatic fans :(

    Trace, I agree with your sentiments about supporting our archu-friends and David of cos. On a personal note, I just want him to be happy with what he’s doing. He should go on living his life to the fullest in whatever way he sees fit. Its his life to live after all.

    LOL Akang, you and your tall guys! David might not be that tall but he’s being compensated with a unique voice, talent, good looks and best of all a good heart. Not bad, right? Anyway he’s taller than me so I am fine with that :D :D

    Hi Liying, best wishes with med school. I suppose you should be starting your semester soon. Go ahead and compose all the love letters you want to David before you head off to uni :D I am imagining him smiling, blushing, scratching his head and laughing while reading your letters!

  41. Auntie Trace, I guess you’re right. I shouldn’t be telling him how to do his job, I’d be pretty annoyed if I were him. Anyways I’m running out of things to tell him about really. Oh wait I haven’t told him to play Marius when he comes back. haha

    Thank you auntie Shirley :-) I’ve got a week left before uni. Nehh I don’t think David has time to read my letters. If he did, I’m the one he probably complained to Kari about. lol. Hey didn’t David say he wanted to be a doctor before too? haha.
    I agree about David’s height. I’m shorter than him too. Anyways if he’s too much taller how am I supposed to kiss him on the cheek? :-D lol

  42. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just too fantastic. I actually like what you’ve acquired here,
    really like what you’re saying and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it wise. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is really a terrific site.

  43. We are a bunch of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community.
    Your website provided us with valuable information to work on.

    You have performed an impressive process and
    our entire community might be thankful to you.

  44. of course like your website but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    find it very troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I will definitely
    come again again.

  45. Having read this I thought it was rather informative. I appreciate you spending some
    time and effort to put this information
    together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both
    reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
