Live Laugh Love
EXO at Manila Hotel and DKFC
Omg guys, I can’t stop spazzing! My friends and I stayed at Manila Hotel the day before the concert. I saw Infinite and U-kiss from a far during the press conference. Exo was supposed to arrive at the same time as the others but the three members which are Lay, Tao and Luhan had visa problems. So only EXO-K arrived at 11 pm. My friends and I were at the lobby waiting for them to arrive, but their managers are super smart! They passed by the fire exit! Hahaha, so it was a failure. It was past midnight when we decided to go to the rumored floor where EXO K is staying. Ninja mode at it’s finest. Unfortunately, we didn’t see them that night. So I slept and when I woke up the next day, I went to the other room where my new found friends were staying and asked them if they have updates ‘bout EXO-M’s arrival. So we strolled around the hotel and went to the poolside. At that time, it was still very early. They said that they’ll be arriving at 11 am. So we just sat down there and looked at the windows of the 17th floor. We really looked stupid and funny at the same time. Anyway, we went to the lobby and waited for them. Unfortunately, they didn’t pass by the lobby. Instead, they passed by the poolside going to the 2nd floor. So from the lobby, we took the elevator going to the 2nd floor. But some fans were really going hysterical and kept on pressing random floors. So we didn’t see EXO-M. Ironically, our friends who were on the 15th floor were able to go down to the 2nd floor the same time EXO-M passed by. Learning bout that, I was really frustrated. So, I was moping in the room when one of my companions suggested to go back to the poolside. This is where the amazing part happens. Guess what! I freaking saw OT12! Okay, let me explain. So we were standing on the sun deck near the poolside when exo, the whole exo went down. They weren’t supposed to pass by in front of us, but Kris said to the bouncer, “No this way,” pertaining to our direction. He’s so nice!! So they casually passed by in front of us! Seriously! They were less than 2 feet away from us!We could literally grab their arms and hug them! But of course, we knew our limitations. Kris was the one leading the line. Gosh, he’s more handsome up close and personally! Luhan’s soooo freaking cute yet very manly! Seriously! I was expecting them to be tall by the way. For me, Xiumin is the shortest. I’m 5” 6 and a half and Xiumin is just inches taller than me. I wasnt’ expecting Baek to be that tall though. He’s almost as tall as Sehun! Tao was wearing a black wife-beater and is a little bit skinny. He’s not that muscular as we perceived him to be. Kyungsoo is cute as usual but he’s also tall, almost the same with Baek. Suho is skinnier in person. He’s cheek bones were protruding already. Chanyeol was wearing a gray hoodie and was holding his guitar. Lay was wearing a leopard print facial mask and didn’t look at our direction. I guess he was a bit of shy. Chen’s arms were wrapped on Kyungsoo’s shoulders while they were walking. This was the sequence of the line by the way. Kris, Kyungsoo&Chen, Suho, Xiumin, Lay, Sehun, Baek, Luhan, Tao&Chanyeol and then Kai with their coordi noona. Two of their managers were at the end of the line. Okay, back to the fan account. So they passed by in front of us! Kris smiled at us while walking. Xiumin and Luhan waved at us! Baekhyun was texting someone while the others just walked while smiling. While they were passing by, we couldn’t react and talk. We were really silent. We just stared at their perfect and flawless faces! There were only 10 of us then by the way. Aren’t we lucky? Hahaha! I wasn’t able to take pictures and/videos of them by that time since I was really starstruck! But that moment will be forever etched in my mind and heart.
Let’s fast forward to the concert. I’m guilty as charged, but I didn’t pay that too much attention to the other artists though I’m also a fan of Infinite and SNSD. I really paid attention to EXO. Sorry, please don’t bash me. Although I didn’t pay too much attention to the other artists, I was able to take a few videos of their performances. I was in the left moshpit by the way. I was supposed to stay at the center of the moshpit, but I decided to stay at the end. I stayed near the metal barricade. The one separating the stage from the audience! FYI, the stage is really tall! Like 6 feet tall! Anyway, when it was EXO’s performance already, I was sitting on the barricade to get a wonderful view of their performance. Stupid me, I forgot to video their performance of MAMA. I spazzed too much. HAHAAH! Fast forward to Open Arms. There were two stages and I was closer to the second stage. I already told you that I was sitting on the barricade right? Half of my body is leveled with the stage already. I can jump anytime. So, when it was Open Arms performance, Kyungsoo passed by in front of me. My head was leveled with his knee already. I can just grab hold of his leg! He looked at my direction, stared at me and then smiled. During their “Hawak Kamay,” a Filipino pop song, Sehun, Kai, Baekhyun, Luhan, Suho and Chen passed by in front of me! I was even able to hold and squeeze for like 5 seconds the hands of Luhan and Sehun. Gosh, they were so soft! I was taking a video of their performance during that time. Kai took a double turn and teased me in a way by looking directly at me and my camera while biting his lips! Gosh, such a tease!
Over all, yesterday was the best moment for me being an EXO fan! Believe me, they are so awesome! Their tagalog was nearly perfect! Especially Baek and Kyungsoo’s! Luhan, Chen, Chanyeol, Suho have decent pronunciation as well! I can’t continue with this anymore. I might faint! Gosh, they are really DAEBAK! <3
I hope they’ll come back soon! Yesterday’s events are etched in my mind and heart forever. For those who don’t believe, I don’t care. Just saying. This is not for bragging sake. I just want to share these wonderful moments with you.
EXO, FIGHTING! EXOTICS, LET’S LOVE THEM MORE OKAY?
