It’s not easy being a fan. I’ve discovered recently that supporting one’s favorite star in every sense of the word can be a full time job. It involves time, effort, money and occasional squabbles. How do I know all these? Well, Rain happened.
We found out that Rain’s entourage frequently dined in this place– sans Rain of course. I could just imagine the pandemonium if he did decide to show up for a meal or so.
Just being there somehow brought us a step closer to him. And that made all the difference to us!
But busy bees, like us, had to eat too! We settled for biggie ensaymadas and some OJ. After all, the prices here were way steep! Whew!
Still no sign of Rain! We plopped into the lounge sofa to rest a bit and to listen to some fine music. Wow! This must be how the rich and famous spend their day off, we thought. Indeed, la dolce vita in every sense of the word. Wait? Are these girls here for Rain too? Did they get to see him?
Change of plans. Okay. One last bathroom trip and snapshot before we decided to go to the concert venue at SM Mall of Asia.
We found some ecstatic fans at the VIP section as early as 2:30 PM. The reason for their enthusiasm? Rain was rehearsing inside! OMG! We found him at last!
Okay. Since we couldn’t risk getting imprisoned just hours before the concert, we simply settled for this snapshot: Rain’s concert stage.
After all, we needed to get to our second errand: Claim our pre-ordered glow in the dark Rain ballers! Check!
The queue to the concert venue was filling up. But we needed energy for the concert and so we decided to have an early dinner.
Tension was building up in anticipation for the concert.
When he finally entered, pandemonium erupted! The fans shouted at the top of their voices, stomped their feet on the ground, jumped up and down with the energy of high school track stars and cheerleaders combined!
After the Concert.
We got the chance to talk to some of Rain’s Japanese fans afterwards. Just imagine, they flew here just for the concert!
Though exhausted, Rain was worth all the time and effort!
Hmmm… Oh là là! C’est délicioux! C’est formidable! C’est très bien!
Roasty-sweet aroma. Velvety smooth cream. Incredibly nutty and crunchy with flavorful bursts of caramel. The New Caramel Biscuit & Cream of Häagen-Dazs melts all my worries away to a state of blissful contentment. It’s Christmas in a cup all year round!
