Meeting YUI for the first time at Hong Kong airport

with 4 comments

Today, a group of us from YUI Lover forum arrived at the airport 2 hours prior to the arrival of YUI’s flight. Everyone was getting excited and people started screaming randomly which really confused the heck out of the rest of us thinking YUI had came out from the arrival gate. Earlier that day Kevin aka hbdcrKevin gave me a bag of goodies containing a candle and “the shaker”, exactly same type YUI had been using. I was shaking it non stop for the whole time out of nervousness. Couple of times other people has complained that the shaking made them more nervous πŸ˜›

When YUI finally walked out, everyone was shouting as expected. Suddenly the group of Hong Kong paparazzi that has been waiting around swarmed in front of YUI totally blocking our view. Seeing one of our guys was also in the group I decided I’d join in as well. I was a meter in front of YUI and started shaking “the shaker”. YUI immediately noticed it and pointed at my way with an “OH!” expression on her face. That’s when we smiled at each other πŸ˜€ That was my first interaction with YUI on that day.

Edit: Found the part where YUI pointed at me when I went up and shook the shaker! It’s around 00:39 and really brief after she bowed and the guy came over and blocked her a bit from camera view. See if you can catch it! πŸ˜€

The rest of the crowd swarmed around YUI giving her gifts and what not. I decided I should have the shaker signed. So I got a marker from one of the forum members, natchi. I managed to get in between and again a meter away from her. I shouted her name and she saw me and acknowledge me, the guy with the shaker. Or maybe just my imagination πŸ˜› This was what happened:

Me: YUI! Sign wo kudasai!
YUI: *shakes head apologetically waving hand*
Me: Onegaishimasu! D:
YUI: *shakes head apologetically waving hand*
Me: *nods understandingly*
YUI: *nods apologetically holding hands together, mouthing something*

Edit: Wow I actually found that part where she refused my request in this video from the HK news where she said “Sorry” “Thank you” while nodding at around 00:53. I knew she was mouthing something but couldn’t hear it at the time:

That was the second time she had a moment with me! πŸ˜€ and there were 2 more after that!

Crowds swarming around her endlessly. The 3rd time, she’s already headed to the exit. I got close to her and held out my hand together with few other people. I actually touched her finger tips only because of the 3 or 4 other hands trying to hold her hand. Cyclo, who had his hand in as well looked at me, we looked at reach other and our hands and went “WOOO!” amazed that we made contact with YUI. I decided that wasn’t enough being it not a full grip πŸ˜›

I got close again, yelled out her name and held out my hand. This time she reached our and gave me a full grip πŸ˜€

Few minutes after that and she was out the exit.

All that time I thought I was recoding a video with my cellphone capturing all the moments. But apparently I failed to start the recording OTL so you can call my bluff if you don’t believe in my testimony πŸ˜›

I’m typing this before bed so that I can capture as much detail as I can remember. Some are quite blurry now :/ Will be adding corrections and edits when I get recorded footages.

Tomorrow, YUI HHITS live!

Signing off,
