My Celebrity-sightings Trip

Between 27 and 29 May 07, I spent 3 days 2 nights in Hong Kong and boy oh boy, what a trip it has been. I kept running into celebrities one after the other.

After getting through the immigration check point at the KLIA airport, I was surprised when I see many young girls snapping away their cameras at this particular lad while the officer did a brief body search on him. Later on, the same group girls were at it again while we're on board the aerotrain to towards the gate. In fact, cameras clicked away furiously along with every step he took and he seems to be oblivious to the attention. Curiosity got the better of me and I took some shots at him and later only did I find out that he is Danson Tang Yu Zhe, a Taiwanese singer who was in Malaysia to promote his drama called "Hanazakarino Kimitachihe" which was playing on 8TV at 7pm, from Monday to Friday. Apparently he plays the character Liang Si Nan.

Next, while I was queuing up to board my plane, guess who should be queuing up right behind me but our very own Camelia! I didn't manage to get a picture with her though. I must say I'm really surprised to find her to be such a petite lady. She promised me and a girl I just befriended a photo with her after the plane landed but she was no where to be found after that. Sigh.

Then, while visiting Victoria Peak, me and my new friend run into a Hong Kong TV host doing a story on the Madame Tussaud's museum. Any readers from Hong Kong can shed a light on who he is?

After that, I was scheduled to see a showcase at HITECH and who else was there to cover the story but a Taiwanese host. He was holding a mike that says 'MTV' but unfortunately, I have no idea what's his name as well. There’s also a popular local DJ around but I couldn’t get his picture which is really a waste because he was seriously extremely good looking. *slurp*

Last but not least, the highlight of my trip was a meeting with Mika! Honestly, I was not a big fan before my trip but the moment his lanky frame bounded onto the stage with the most infectious energy and enthusiasm and I know I'm as good as sold. Of course it helps that his brand music is feel-good pop, the type of songs you wanna play over and over again. I was a full convert before the showcase even ended, not to mention a little deaf as I was in the first row right in front of the speakers. We even got the chance to go backstage for a meet-and-greet session! I was slightly giddy by that time from all the excitement.

All in all, this has been an awesome trip. It was my first time traveling on my own but the people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made along the journey truly makes this an unforgettable trip. I simply love the place and if I really have to pick something to complain about it would be the fact that my chicken rice was served to me in a plate but I was provided chopsticks! I’m hopeless with them but you know what, I probably shouldn't complain because on the day I was scheduled to leave, my friend and I ran into Mika's entourage comprising his sister and mother. How many fans can lay claim to that, eh? *grins*
