Yehet!! The tickets we got for after like 30 mins of struggling with the freaking online sales server and 45 mins of teleconferencing!! *wipes sweat* For the online ticket sales, me and my friends initially planned to “attack” a section each and decide who got the better seats before checkout but wtf the server was so bloody slow and unstable and we ditched all our plans. In the end the best plan was to have no plans lol
Queueing for fan support goods! The queue above was for chanyeol. There were tons of other queues elsewhere
It was my first time hehe. After seeing all those fan support events on twitter and weibo for the previous tlps, I was really looking forward to finally be able to experience one :)
There were so many fan supports going on I was initially afraid that it would be very chaotic, but it turned out to be quite okay. Most Singaporean fans were cooperative and orderly :)) And we didn’t have any particular fansupport good that we die-die-had-to-get so it was like a fun mini exo theme park for me haha
Our trains all reached Stadium station at the same time coincidentally! Haha the exo-l frequency? Anyway, the first thing we did was to go and collect the official merchandise (thanks so much to fel we could get our official merchandise through the preorder!). Fel queued for the collection while me and Mel went to see what fansupports were available. I saw Baekhyun Sister’s queue and joined while Mel continued to explore. Before the distribution of BHS fansupport goods commenced, there was a huge commotion and fangirls started running towards the stadium area near us. Apparently EXO’s van appeared but it was a false alarm LOL. Fortunately I didn’t run to join the screaming crowd bc the queue got shorter :P The masters for BHS were pretty nice and the girl who checked my tickets looked happy when I showed her my phone lockscreen with an eyesmile Baek :D
Queueing for chen’s banner this time. There was an auntie behind us who came with her young daughter and we chatted a little and found out that she was a chanyeol fan! And the interesting part was she got into exo first and introduced exo to her daughter, whom became a Tao fan XD
Got xm’s fan! So cute!!
We got tired after running around in the hot sun and headed to astons to have late lunch.
Cute baekhyun hairband I got for 5 bucks. Expensive stuff for its quality but well its a once in a while thing keke
With baidu baekhyun bar’s banner and the silly hairband hahaha. I just love chibi baek!! No I didn’t wear that hairband as I ate my food lol it was just for the picture
Official fanlight which is SO DAMN GORGEOUS. SO DAMN. GORGEOUS. It literally sparkle like diamonds. No picture or video does it justice really.
After lunch we hung around outside Kallang Wave’s toilet lol. There were a lot of fans there and the security guard kept coming to chase us away
OOTD! Finally wore this EXO shirt I got from the popup store. Couldn’t bear to wear it before hahaha
I curled my hair that morning (like what mel said its like we were preparing to get married LOL) but it died a little after running around under the sun for 2 hours. But hey getting fan support stuff was fun!
So we decided to just wear our hairbands as we weren’t the only ones doing it so it wasn’t as embarrassing. Some passer-by uncle was amazed when he saw our hairbands lol
We went to starbucks bc we had nothing to do and were too lazy to queue for other fan support goods
My green tea latte which I tried to not finish bc I didn’t want to go to the toilet during the con
Anyway, the crew at Starbucks talked to us bc they saw our hairbands and said they knew exo hahaha
The silver crown for Peter Pan project!
Mel wanted take a pic of the EXO truck we saw earlier so we headed outside again
The queue to enter the venue was soooo long fortunately we got in before it started
Before this I was calm because we queued for too long to enter. But the adrenaline kicked in when I saw the stage!!! I just love the stage design! Its an exo logo :)))
EXO’s song were playing before the con started and the whole stadium was singing along
The unity of Singaporean fans is 짱~!! I’m so glad we don’t have the 唯饭 VS 团饭 thing here in Singapore :)))
More selcas lol
With fel and mel
Trying to take a selca with the gorgeous fanlight but it got overexposed orz. I hope that girl behind was just taking a selfie with the crown and took it down before the con started. It was supposed to be a surprise event for Peter Pan but some people wore it for the whole con =.=
So as usual they came out with MAMA and all like the other TLPs
During the intro ment, the members spoke a lot of english. It was really cute and different from other TLPs! Baekhyun kept saying “ok thank you” to the translator and adlibbed a lot when the other members spoke lol
Suho’s fail but cute english was definitely was one of the highlights! He accidentally said passion as patient XD And he tried to compliment EXO-Ls saying that we are wonderful, beautiful. Chen asked him for one more word (ending with -ful) but he couldn’t think of any and said that was his limit. Then tao said “he can’t speak english ok” lol. These jokes are gonna follow him forever in the ifandom haha on top of the kim junhee jokes hahaha
Anyway I brought my mom’s point and shoot camera bc I didn’t want to risk bringing in my dslr. The security caught me and the girl beside me a few times lol
Wasn’t really familiar with my mom’s cam so I ended up using the auto mode for all the shots and a lot of pictures got overexposed/blurred bc of movements orz
There was a project for Moonlight in which we were supposed to use the fingerlights given instead of our fanlights, and selected seats would be given some coloured paper thing to form the words EXO. But it failed terribly! We took out our fingerlights but no one else did the same and everyone just continued using the fanlights.
Speaking of fanlights we saw a few “light sabers” in the moshpit! Damn we wanted to get those but we were afraid that it would be viewed as weapons and wouldn’t get past the security check hahaha
Baek’s message. Quite generic actually HAHAHA
Wonder who wrote this
Kyungsoo’s solo time. So damn far haha
Every fangirls’ favourite performance *wriggles eyebrows*. I wonder how fanboys felt when they watched this lol (yes there were fanboys.. not many but yes they exist)
Favourite part of fangirls’ favourite performance LOL. And byun baek just had to not join in pfft. And he never came to my section’s extended stage at all pffftt. Sassy my bias is indeed sassy
Baek’s solo~ His voice *.*
Istg before I stanned him his voice was already my favourite among kpop male idols. I love how he can sound husky and powerful in songs like MAMA and yet mellowy in ballads
Our seats actually had restricted view of the stage. During chanyeol and baek’s solo, they were positioned towards the back of the stage and there were equipment blocking our view urgh
First bias doesn’t want to come so the bratty second bias was here to save the day lol. A few months before I will never have thought that I would stan these two today. Well life’s unpredictable. Fangirls’ hearts are even more so HAHAHA
Suho and Tao came to my section’s stage a lot. I think chanyeol looks better irl. Luhan looks really pretty still lol. The rest look more or less the same. Can’t judge for dyo or baek bc they never came close enough for me to see properly urgh. Lay was really sweet. He kept waving to fans with his adorable dimple-smile :))
During the ment part before machine, tao said his famous “Actually I think english is very important for me but I don’t have time study english” line again lol. Lay commented that he had been using this same line for 3 years hahaha. Then dyo jumped out in bathrobe with the cutest lost-puppy face ever! He’s just so squishy ㅠㅠㅠ
The part where they were preparing for the encore was super funny!! We chanted encore a few times at first but bc everyone was drained we eventually gave up LOL so the boys came out with Wolf amidst what will be considered as silence for a concert standard XD
The intro to wolf was really cool and mystical! And I got to witness the tree of life for myself though blocked by the damn equipments at the side of the stage
Fanchant for Growl was good! It was also the only fanchant I knew :X haha
My favourite part during the ending ment has got to be where Chanyeol accidentally cued the last song bc he didn’t know that there were members who were not done with their ments yet. When the music started playing, the other members were like STOP! STOP! STOP! XD I just love how the members scolded chanyeol after that and how baek growled at him lol
And Lay mentioned that he was touched by the 365 and Peter Pan Projects :D I actually think that 365 and the saranghaja project during the last song were the most successful. Project peter pan was really cute but bc the organizer didn’t have enough funds not all fans got the crown. Anyway kudos to the people who organized the projects! :)))
Previously me, fel and mel were discussing whether they would do the ice bucket challenge at the con or not but we dismissed the idea. But they really did it!!
Kai was wearing a white shirt so his nipples appeared and luhan quickly covered them with tissue papers looooll
And so the con ended :(( It felt so short really. Actually I think the pace was kinda rushed. The songs came one after another I didn’t even need to check the song list on my phone bc the next song would come out immediately lol
Love the crown!!!
Fel was soooo lucky. She picked up a fingerlight on the ground and it turned out to be her bias Jongdae’s! Mel was very nice. I told her that I didn’t really need to have the fingerlight but she offered baek’s to me anyway and took tao’s one haha
Went to snap a picture of the beautiful night scenery and got “caught” by some insurance agent who tried to sell us his career talks. He initially tried to talk to us by asking about the concert so we happily shared. Then he told us that he worked for this insurance agency and would be glad to leave us his contact if we wanted to attend his talks =.= He kept complimenting us for our verbal skills and I was like I only talk well when it comes to exo okay ain’t nobody’s interested in talking about insurance policies to people =.= So we just came up with an excuse that we had a last train to catch and quickly fled the scene lol
We were really hungry by then (we ate lunch at 3 plus and the concert ended at around 10 and that random uncle talked to us till around 11 plus..) so we headed to xing wang cafe at somerset to get some late dinner/supper
Pork congee which was quite good
Grass jelly drink to soothe the throat
Fel’s stir-fried noodles which I thought was quite nice!
Hung around chatting about the con before we left at around 2. Me and fel caught the last night rider wtf. When I saw the operating time on the bus stop information board I was so scared that I missed the last bus but luckily I didn’t haha
Reached home around 3.
Couldn’t sleep after washing up so I played and admired the stuff I collected until like 5 plus hahaha
Overdose logo in the fanlight! SM always has some brilliant designs and ideas for exo and I’m thankful for it
Trying to capture how the fanlight sparkles. It already looks pretty in the video but its actually a lot prettier than this irl istg
Playing with baek’s fingerlight
All the fansupport items I collected. Not much compared to others I’ve seen
Now its time to save up for smtown. Actually I’m not too interested in smtown bc I’m not that into other sm groups. But fel’s most likely going and it will probably take at least a year for exo to be back for another solo con. I would love to fly to some other city to watch TLP again but its a bit hard to get tickets and costly to fly over :(
Overall, it was a really tiring but fun and memorable day :)) If you’re an EXO-L you really gotta experience TLP for yourself at least once! Don’t miss out on the fan support events too!
Love the performances today!! Empty is my jam but the more I listen to color ring the better it sounds!! And the encore was so dorky haha!
Taiwan 2013 - Part 4
Breakfast at our second hotel - Relite Hotel. I wouldn’t stay at this hotel again even though the location is not that bad.. The hotel was really old it gave me the creeps sometimes
The food variety was lacking and looked really unappetizing so I only ate a little..
Wearing the dress I bought at Huaxi/Shilin (I forgot..) for NT200
XMD. Wanted to have goose meat at this famous shop but it wasn’t opened for business yet
This umbrella shop is totally cute. The signboard says that you get a 10% discount on a sunny day and none on rainy days lol
Nothing to do or shop so we went to a local eatery to do what Singaporeans do best - EATING!!!
Oyster omelette. Not bad
Cuttlefish soup with cellophane noodles. So-so
Walked to Hsin Tung Yang to get some food souvenirs but none looked good so we only got a box of pineapple cakes
Cabbed to ChiaTe to get their sun biscuits and pineapple cakes
There was a queue because the staff were managing the number of customers allowed into the shop. Good organization. Because even with the human traffic management some customers were still rushing and grabbing stuff like WW3 was coming…..
We got two big boxes of sun biscuits and pineapple cakes. I went there for their sun biscuits bc I had it before and liked it. But I was surprised that their pineapple cakes tasted really good too! They sucked when heated and can only be eaten at room temperature though
Same design hehe
I find no difference between Tw and Sg’s version
Back at hotel. Mini haul from Watsons
I hardly watch TV so I was fascinated when EXO came up on our hotel’s TV *silently spazzing bc my Mom don’t know about my crazy fangirl side looooll*. Anyway look at that diva Tao hahahaha
When kris was still there and all was well..
I don’t know what they were doing and I was just spazzing lol
My boys ㅠㅠㅠㅠ See you this Saturday~~!!! ㅋㅋㅋ
Finally dragged our lazy asses out for a late lunch at XMD
My kimchi soup which was really worthed the money. Lots of ingredients in the soup
Mom’s pork galbi set was really good too
I tried the meat and it was quite tender
HAHAHA why the fk would u call your own products stupid
Wild boar sausage
Quite yummy though really fattening
Shopped for a bit before settling at a Thai place for dinner. Lol idk why we were eating Korean and Thai food in tw
Mediocre green papaya salad
Expensive looking rice pot
Normal steamed white rice in it lol wth. This pot of rice was really expensive but we didn’t really had a choice
Spicy water spinach which was pretty good
Green curry chicken. The chicken was in strips.. quite different from what we expected. But I liked the curry still.
Bought some cut fruits for dessert
Loots from XMD
There was a beauty shop doing a clearance sale and I got these falsies bc they looked really pretty even though I don’t really wear falsies now. I really like falsies with thinned tips bc they look really natural and pretty!! I don’t think I’ve worn them out yet though lol
Next morning. Last day in Taiwan!
Mom had the hotel breakfast while I went out to get some Taiwanese style breakfast
Wanted to try Yong He but it was closed so I just bought food from random shops that were open
Super huge glutinous rice dumpling. It was the size of an average-sized egg!
Black sesame filling oozing out. The skin was too thick for my liking. Red bean soup was quite good though
Egg crepe with ham. Tasted better without the ham.
Poor mom couldn’t have any of these bc her gastric was acting up :(
Bread from 7-11 for snacking on our flight later. The bread were pretty good surprisingly!!
Otw to airport on cab and we saw A LOT of black smoke. Supposedly a factory fire :O
Xiao long baos at a Chinese restaurant in airport. I was too full from breakfast so I skipped lunch and only had some of these
Cute painting :)
Wifi is life
OH MY GOD DON’T DO THIS TO ME
CLOUDS KILL ME MORE THAN EXO DOES
WHAT KPOP YEOSHIN
MOTHER EARTH IS THE REAL YEOSHIN
Quiznos at airport for dinner
Iron eggs from Danshui. Those from the brand De Yu (middle and right ones) had a weird taste
Some of the stuff bought from tw airport. The green bean cake from Wei Ge was really good!! Sun biscuit was quite nice too. Should have bought more orz
Ok I’m finally done with this TW trip!! Yehet!!
WINNER | Inkigayo debut stage
Mino and Taehyun looked so good ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
Now I demand another winner variety show!!
love triangle between traffic light(Xiumin), Trash can(Tao) and Mailbox (Sehun)…
tragedy of millennium tbh (-᷅_-᷄๑);;
Bintan Lagoon Resort
Extra-ed for a camera TVC quite some time back.. Could only publish this post now due to production reasons
The beach is GORGEOUS
Been so long since I’ve gone to the beach since I’m an Internet junkie hahaha. But I loved it!! The sun, the sea breeze and the salty air was simply refreshing :D
Lunch for the crew
The burger was actually quite mediocre but I managed to finish it because my mood was really good haha
The fork handle is soooo long lol
The set! So pretty!!!
Didn’t prepare sunblock as we thought filming would be indoor. And so I got sunburnt..
Chilled drink to the rescue
M made me do this weird heart-sign-at-the-side pose haha
Beehoon goreng dinner before leaving for home
Bought some snacks at the ferry terminal. They were quite expensive but the only other choice was to not buy lol. The kueh lapis was surprisingly good :)
