These may be some of the questions you may ask of me:
Are working for TFS?
Are you a KHJ fan?
If not then why are you doing all these?
My answer to all of the above, Bae Yong Joon.
It was because of YJ that I got acquainted with TFS. So when news broke that they would be bringing KHJ, I volunteered to help them with the fans portion. Why? Mostly because HJ has become part of our Bae family so somehow I feel I’m supposed to do something to help one way or the other.
And the thing about KHJ, well, ok I do like him la… I think I’ve watched all of his TV works and listened enough of SS501 to know and actually talked about these boys. Ok, HJ is the one I like most among them I admit. I think it’s difficult not to right? Even so, I didn’t want to call myself a fan. Why? Well, it’s a tiring task you know :p
When YJ, I mean Keyeast decided to sign him on I was elated. It was like YJ has heard our voices calling for him to get him on board haha..but this is another story to be told :p
Oh, I’ve deviated. Ok, so anyway, I was ‘in-charged’ of bringing in the fans for the event.
So for the first time ever, I had to go searching and calling up people I don’t know and who don’t know me. First the 2 local FCs representatives, Rachel and Tyra. Then it was to BB in Singapore who after much thought decided not to come herself but instead helped arranged for the others from Taiwan and Korea(PERFECT) to join us. You have no idea how tough a decision it was for me to help these fans to get them their TFS products in order for them to take their chances at the lucky draw for HJ’s autograph. I had to rang up to a total of 20 over receipts for 2 different types of purchases without a shopping list from the purchasers themselves..haha ladies, I hope those products I’ve chose suits your needs ^^
Oh Thailand. Yeah Thai fans did cross my mind and first thing I did was to call my Bae sister in Bangkok to ask if she knows of any HJ or TripleS fans in Thailand. None. So, my apologies to those Thai fans who came all the way. Perhaps I’ll advise the local FCs to get in touch with all of you for future communication. ^^
Soon, finally as the day draws nearer, and when my passes have all been given out, my dear sister BB called to ask for additional passes. Haha, seemed like some gals just got itchy and decided to fly in with him to KL. Yeah I know how it feels. Anyway, in the end I managed to get them all in ^^
Hmm.. I’m supposed to talk about family gathering and look now where I’ve gone to :p
Ok so, like all Bae sisters around the world, each time when one from country A visits the other in country B, they will always arrange for a meet up and the host will play host and the guest will play guest. And I believe, ever since I’ve become part of the Bae family in 2002, this hospitality has never fail. Wherever you go, there will be someone there you can call ‘family’. What do we do then? Well besides the usual eat and ‘play’, we talk. Trust me, we really TALK.
This time, my guests coming in aren’t any Bae family so what is there to talk about? Haha..KHJ
Even though I am only meeting all, yeah ALL, of them for the first time, (there’s a lot of ‘first time’ with BYJ so we Bae family are used to it ^^) I can somehow feel some closeness with all of them. Probably maybe it’s because I consider HJ as part of the family hence all of his fans are also family.
The Taiwanese fans, Ya-Chih and Chia-Ling were the first 2 I met on Friday night with Emily. Then the 3 PERFECTs from Korea and finally the others from Singapore. I was glad that our local TSMY gals got a chance to get to know all of the others because chances like these are really rare in Malaysia. Dinner on Saturday after the fans session was a merry in the making even though the 20 of us had to sit in 4 separate tables.
To me, it was all fun and I really really enjoyed myself. Talking, chatting and laughing about HJ. The gals sharing their experiences with HJ, their first time with HJ, their special moments…many more.
Gives me the ‘yesterday once more’ feel during my hey-days of BYJ chasing. You may have people not understanding how you feel but trust me, I know exactly how you feel..hehe.. I enjoyed the late night talks we had especially with Ya-Chih’s story. The one I like best was when she told me how she planned to see HJ off at the airport but woke up late that morning. She had to rush to the airport and keep praying “I will see him, I will see him, I will see him..” and when she got to the airport, she was relieved. HJ too was late for his flight. Isn’t it just amazing how some fans really have the kind of fate with their idols?? Call it coincidence if you want but to many even myself, it is really fate 인연
