A day. Yes, it took me exactly one day to figure how should i start off for this entry. Also due to time constraints, of coz..
14 Dec 2007
Went to fetched Hanwei's fans from Taiwan with 3 of her friends from the airport around noon. I actually knew Peijun online since 4-5 years back and really glad to see her in person for the very first time. It was her first visit to Singapore, and she had only one thing in mind- To see her idol of 12 years. She was indeed lucky as Hanwei's involved in mission on 16/12, meaning she can get to see more of him. After bringing them to their Hotel, YMCA, proceeded to Orchard Road for abit of shopping. Then was our final stop was Bugis.

I only got to meet them in late afternoon as i had something on in the morning. Nevertheless, they walked around Vivo City to keep themselves occupied and then far east shopping centre for another round of shopping. Newton Food centre was our last stop for dinner.

Reached Mediacorp at around 830am to place our boards for star awards queue. Huiling and i then proceeded to heeren, to meet up with Jennifer and of coz to see and support Hanwei in the mission. His taiwan fan came not long after, and they were interviewed by Hanwei's team where Hanwei was pleasantly surprised to know that she supported him since 12 years back! Peijun was extremely happy and could not contain her excitment. We're happy for her too:)Hanwei came and talked to us whenever he could, and we really appreciate that. Initially some of us were avoiding the camera, as didnt wana go on national tv.. He was also nice enough to ask us if we wana go on tv:) We also gave him a card to encourage him.. ;]
The results for mission was announced at around 230 pm. Hanwei's team won- Yay! And then the rain began to pour. After wishing Hanwei good luck for star awards, we all went to had our lunch at Heeren. Then we brought Peijun and her bf to a friend of theirs to bring them around to other areas. The 4 of us, - P, Z, H and J took a cab at Paragon to Mediacorp and reached around 430 pm. There were a number of fan cubs there by then.
It was 6+pm and before we knew, we were sitting at the gallery. We were surprised when Hanwei's name was booted out of top 16. Then we tried to call as much as we could till the poll closed, but to no avail.
But we knew Hanwei must have felt worse.. And this time we didnt cry like how we did last year. But deep down, all of us were really sad for hanwei. Our hearts sank literally. We all were quiet throughout the whole ceremony.. but there was this unseen strong unity among us.
Proceeded to radio gate after that. Hanwei came out at around 1115 and stopped for fans twice. The fc members chose to walk down further to let others approach him first.
He drove to us after 1-2 mins and came out of his car. He apologised to us for wasting our money and effort. :( Although he told us he's not disappointed and all, but................
It should be us consoling him and not the other way round. And he kept telling us not to be upset..esp to his tw fan who came. We had our photos taken and it was really a nice session with him. No regrets supporting him! He also talked about his drama, that he wont be involved in the drama with Zoe anymore. We all were like, why.. then he said, quality to quantity!
His hardwork is evident over the years. We know, we feel, we really do..
We hope year 2008, which marks the 20th year in his career will be a better and fruitful one. Hopefully a gathering with him next year:)
17th Dec 2008
Brought tw fans to Chinatown for last shopping trip and then to the airport. It was really sad to see them leave:( but i know this wont be my first and last time seeing them. Wana thank hanwei for fostering friendships in the fanclub, esp Peijun, who proved to be a very very nice person(: Throughout these 4 days, i've experienced the culture of taiwanese, the languages etc..And hopefully, visiting them next year if my school timetable permits.
Hugged them before they went in for their flight.. Really glad to know em:)
Anyway, Hanwei appeared in Mission today! Did anyone catch it? He looked absolutely great and.. his tw fan was being captured on tv! :D
Do support Hanwei's team this sat 22 DEC, 2-5 pm HEEREN.
