I MET DAVID ARCHULETA. 🙂
One of my to do-list is….
17) Meet David Archuleta.
Wooott! Haha. So well, now is the time that I’d tell you about it. David Archuleta has always been one of my inspirations since 2009. He thought me that being famous and not dropping your standards IS POSSIBLE. David Archuleta, as a person, is amazing. I’m not even talking about his mind blowing voice yet. As a person, I look up to David Archuleta. If you’ve ever gotten to read his book, Chords of Strength, you’d find that there is so much to that young guy and that he is just like everyone else. He definitely has maturity and some wise words at such a young age.
Since 2009, I’ve prayed that I would get to meet David Archuleta – ofcourse, never really believing that it would come to pass. Well, it finally did!
I really tried to shorten everything as much as I can so bare with me!
At about 10.40 am, 26th July, after math class, my eyes were swelling up in tears. I failed my math – badly. Right after class ended, I dashed out. As I was going to the toilet to cry my eyeballs out, I got a text message that said I got VVIP tickets. That tears of disappointment turned into tears of JOY! 😀 I hurriedly called Sarah and told her everything!
We finally reached Stadium Negara and found out we got TWO soundcheck passes. Sarah and I were overjoyed! During the soundcheck, me and sarah were to first to go in and we got the front row! When David Archuleta finally came out AHHHHHHHHH. You should have saw my face! I could see him so clearly. When he asked if we had any song request, I shouted “DAVID, SING TOUCH MY HAND!” and HE DID. So there, David is singing TMH and me – dying inside and singing along. Is that even possible? hahah yes. There was a few times when he answered me during the sound check… teehee! I’m so glad I have a loud voice. HAHA. 😀 oh oh oh, HE POINTED AT ME!!! THE PART THAT WENT “IN THE SEA OF PEOPLE, THERE WAS ONLY YOU”
Sarah and I were glaring enviously at all the screaming girls that just came out for meet and greets. They’re so lucky! Later did I know that we got to be the lucky ones too! So yes, Sarah and I got meet and greets! It was TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. We were screaming, “omg omg omg” and we also did say a little prayer of thanksgiving to God for this amazing opportunity together with another girl, Yvette. hahaha.
So I walked in, and I fainted – with my eyes open. Yes, that is possible. The correct term is star struck. David was just three feet away for me… THREE FEET. This felt like a dream. A dream come true! Without hesitation, I asked David for a hug. The guard shouted “NO!!! NO HUGS” but David stammered “uh.. ooo kaay.” SO there, I hugged him and the guards arm was in between both of us. But, It didn’t matter. I closed my eyes and let out a smile! There I was, with my arms around him and his around me and my head on his chest. ahhhh. His arms were like hesitant at first then, slowly tightening!!! OMG. hahah. I suppose it was cuz of the guard’s arm in between both of us. I didn’t feel it of course. I WAS TOO HAPPY.
So when it was time for the pictures to be taken, David put his arm on my back and without hesitation, I put mine around his waist and also rested my cheek on his shoulders!!! AHHH He felt so hard and so firm!!
I do remember someone tell David that there was something on his hair and David giggled. I think Yvette said that. Thank you to whoever said that – I TOUCHED David Archuleta’s hair to sort of try to get it of. I mean, ran my fingers through his hair. But my shivery fingers were running through the wrong side of his hair. hahaha. I’M SORRY! I WAS REALLY TOO OVERJOYED.
When the picture taking was over, I manage to tell say to David, “David! You’re my inspiration!”. Suddenly he looked right at me – pierced me with his mesmerizing green eyes and he let out the cutest smile ever, “Why, thank you!”
I would say that I was very well composed because I definitely didn’t want to intimidate David. Honestly, I was a balloon waiting to burst. Literally. When I walk out, I started jumping around and crying! MY DREAM CAME THROUGH. IT REALLY DID. IT REALLY REALLY DID. After such a long time of wishing that I would get to meet David, I FINALLY DID. I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER GET THE CHANCE. When you have been “fantasizing” for so long and that person you’ve always wanted to meet is infront of you – you’d blank out – just like me. hahahaha.
Alright, concert time! I was sitting in the third row, VVIP and it was amazing. From the minute David entered the stage, I was mind blowed. The atmosphere was great and the energy level was there! IT WAS SO AMAZING BEYOND MY WORDS CAN EVEN EXPRESS.
Thank you much Sony – for bringing David to Malaysia, Archuleta Avenue – all of you guys were so friendly and Aunty Jo – for without you, Sarah and I would not have the opportunity to meet David.
This day is by far the best day of MY LIFE.
