Exactly one year ago today, David Archuleta stepped on Malaysian soil for the very first time.
Boy, do we remember that day or what? The spazziness, the hype, the sheer craziness of it all..It was a wonder I managed to even sleep the night before. But gosh guys. The airport scene is still as fresh in my mind like it just happened yesterday. The journey to the airport, getting to finally see you lovely people i’ve met online, waiting anxiously and letting out a not-so-silent squeal everytime we thought someone wearing a red t-shirt approaching was him, practicing our “Touch My Hand” choir to catch his attention later on, running like headless chickens all over the airport, fangirling Jolene with as many “OMGOSH”es as possible as she told her story, and of course, the epic moment when we finally saw his glowy face and how it still humors me today as i recall everyone going, “OH MY GOSH HE REALLY GLOWS LAH.”And oh, of course the part where security had to bring him back inside when the crowd got out of hand loll.
Those 10-20 seconds that we got to catch a glimpse of him for the very first time with our own eyes, man, those moments were priceless. Never have i imagined myself to be a person who goes to airports to welcome an artist and act like the fangirl i was that day but yeah, apparantly this dude has made me do alot of things i never thought i’ll do in my lifetime lol.
Needless to say, the next 3 days was one of the best and most memorable times for many of us. Memories that will be cherished for as long as we can. Shall we take a quick walk down memory lane?
Here’s to a beautiful person with amazing talent and such wonderful personality that still remains true to who he is, both as a person and an artist.
And oh, most of you would have known by now that he’s performing on Idol Results show this week..Pretty good timing to sort of er..commemorate this one year anniversary i think 😉 hehe.
We miss you David. We want to welcome you at our airport again. If they still let you come out through the front exit that is..
