Whoa-Oh Oh Oh; I had a dream last night. I watched David Archuleta sing live
But when I woke up, it was not a dream. IT WAS REAL! What a feeling!
Now I know how it feels like to be in Cloud 9..
The Sony Singapore people are really understanding people. When we were waiting at Zouk for almost 9 hours, they came over to talk to us and we shared about our ‘expensive’ passes, stood for hours, battled hunger and thirst and aching feet. So just before the show time, they told us fans will have the front row. VIPs passes were ushered to the balcony! Entering Zouk felt like you are in a maze, my sister and I happened to find the fastest way and parked ourselves in the front.
Days like this, it’s hard to breath. I’m gonna take this moment that I’m in right now.
With my eyes and ears locked only on David and his singing. Leave all the craziness behind me. When the moment he stood in front of me and my sister singing SBL, prompted by my sister to stretch out my hand. And he shook my hand with a firm gripped. I just wanna steal this moment right away from time. So what do you say when you can’t come down, when you feel like you’re ten feet off the ground …
Well, like a train wreck, we are on a mission the next day
So I put my feet back firmly on the ground. Stop and just look around me.
Well, these are words, I wanna say. How good it feels to be here with Sheba, Trace, Jennie, Shirley, Eugenie, Mallorie, Katrina, Rachel and all the fans of David around us. As we inched our way, any time, any minute now. We were getting closer to David. Oh what a moment Trace, Sheba and I had. We shared with him our mission is for him to come back to Malaysia for a full concert. Mission accomplished, now we shall pray and wait he will come back soon!
As I mentioned to Trace and Sheba, my only regret is that I didn’t have a good camera or video with me. Because I had the best view at the showcase as well as I went up to have autograph signed twice! Now, the happy memory is embedded in my memory. Next time, I will be more prepared.
We had a smashing time with the DASG fans. Especially Clara, Weiyan and LY. The length they went to do things for David – went to airport to welcome him, ran after the van; waited 10 hrs at his hotel to say hello (failed); showed up at Zouk at 9 am when the showcase starts at 5.30pm; bought him his favorite food; ran in the HEAVY downpour to give him his food when they spotted the van arrive; sang their hearts out at every song at the showcase .. that at a point it was getting annoying L; at the autograph session, they got the crowd to sing happy birthday to David (which is sweet). No idea whether they went to the airport to see him off the next day haha! Well, they are 16 yrs old I probably would do the same too .. knowing how crazy I am of David. It’s only age that kept me grounded.
Sheba, Trace, Jennie, Shirley, the girls and myself hang around Bugis Junction to share all our precious moment we had with David. I think I have cried a little, well I know Jolene did. What an impact he had on all of us. We MISSED HIM! We even group hugged at the side of the streets and made our wishes that he will come back soon!
Below is an autograph from Alfredo, he obediently wrote the message to AAMers as I told him to .. hahaha!
This is one life experience I shall always treasure. David has brought so many of us closer together. Next road trip … US TOURS!!!!! *High Five* anyone?????
