Ruco 陈展鹏,我爱你,我们永远支持你!

Translation: Ruco, I love you, we’ll support you forever!

Ok, the title is to expiate the fact that I was too embarrassed to shout this aloud when it could be heard by Ruco himself at Paradigm Mall on Apr 7th when he’s there to promote his new series!

This’s actually my first time becoming one of the 追星一族 (people who chase after celebrities) and I must say it’s not easy at all! The event was scheduled at 3pm. I reached the mall around 1.30pm and it was still quite empty around the barricade.

Still empty!

Still empty!

Marked my territory for the day!

My support towards Ruco paled into insignificance if compared to theirs.  Resources needed= time, energy, funding (flowers, backdrops,  special costume, etc.!)

I was at location (1) all the while. At around 4pm, I got bored seeing the interview session of local artists (Ruco went backstage), thirsty and my legs were sore with all the standing and tiptoeing. I gave in and told my colleague I had enough and felt like leaving the crowd and so we did. After buying some drinks, I squeezed my way through the throng at location (2) because Ruco started singing but I was no where near the barricade! I felt the twinge of remorse when Ruco came down from the stage and went around the barricade and shook hands with the crowd! I seriously rued my decision of leaving location (1)!

Ruco started singing.....

Ruco started singing…..

and the went around to shake hands! I thought this's the closest I could ever get to him!

At around 4.30pm, I was about to leave the mall, came a providential opportunity. When everyone’s attention was riveted on stage, I saw guards started to barricade the escalator going down near the backstage. The strategic planner in me decided that I should wait downstairs. I waited patiently just next to the edge of escalator when there’s almost no one downstairs.

My colleague and I descended the escalator ELEGANTLY and waited next to it patiently

Chronology of events leading to the MOMENT!

0:38                  =shook Vivien’s hand and managed to convey that she’s very pretty 🙂

Around 0:44 =shook Aimee’s hand

1:04                  =Ruco’s descending the escalator. I started to wave my hand madly (the hand with a black watch belongs to me! :D) and to scream his name aloud!

1:11                  = jeng jeng jeng! It’s the MOMENT that Ruco shook my hand! After that, colleague and I started to giggle non-stop. Too bad, I wasn’t captured in the video, else this precious memory will be immortalized!

My hand was all steady holding the camera at the beginning. When the excitement kicked in, ..... :p

I went home that day, feeling surreal! 

Postscript to my epic adventure:-

I texted Sue before leaving to Paradigm Mall that I hoped I could have her “Hi, Daniel!” experience. Of all my friends, I think she’s the only one who could comprehend my excitement.

Me: i can’t sleep last night, was on cloud nine

Sue: too high ma, i know hahaha

Me: when daniel hi u back, did u have the same experience?

Sue: of course la! I seriously almost fainted hahahaha

After she watched the legendary video, she left me a “heart-warming” note:

I’m such a good friend, spending half the time watching the beautiful and rhythmic movement of the escalator hahahahhaa

人生有多少个19年?!默默地喜欢他这么多年了,我以为我这次会豁出去了,会敢敢示爱!:p 想象和事实总会有些出入的! 到了现场,我发现,在追星物语里“我爱你不是爱给别人看!”的含蓄思维和作风是非常落伍和吃亏的!爱,就要勇于承认和表示!:p

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
"机遇总是偏爱有准备的人"
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
