This is going to be a long-winded account that’s going to sound like my thank-you list (which, in fact, it is). Without the help and advice of many friends, my trip wouldn’t be as enjoyable and successful as it was. Erm, if I thank someone and use the wrong name, please blame it on my age and poor memory … So here it is, in no order of merit (lol):
First to Veron, thanks for saying that you’re going to Bangkok, otherwise I wouldn’t have gone. Thanks for your lively company, and for sharing everything with us, and for the spa contact too.
To Ferlyn, thanks for joining me on the trip (ok, I admit I was egging her on, but the more, the merrier!). I cannot remember which of us came up with the idea of staying at Four Seasons because we heard that JKS was staying there, so we booked a room there, and I had to “abandon” my original non-refundable hotel room booking at Centre Point Petchburi. Then later we heard that JKS was not staying at Four Seasons after all, because HS Media was unhappy with 411 Entertainment for posting JKS’ hotel on their website. Was disappointed, but what’s done was done. It was only on Fri 27 May afternoon that we heard news of JKS appearing for his press conference and interview at Four Seasons, but that did not necessarily mean he was staying there.
Then on Sat 28 May when we returned to the hotel at 2 pm plus and saw a crowd of fans waiting at the lobby, only then were we sure that JKS was staying there. I had entertained the thought of going back to Centre Point because of the free WIFI there, and so I was packing my luggage on Saturday when Ferlyn went back down to the lobby to catch a glimpse of JKS, and she did see him come down the main central staircase to go out to the Cri Show venue. When Ferlyn returned to the room, I had changed my mind and decided to continue my stay at Four Seasons. I thought that I could wait for JKS at the lobby for him to return from his Cri Show and private party, but in the end, was too tired to do that and anyway, I’ll be seeing him again in KL. So I didn’t manage to see JKS at the hotel at all. Read the rest of this entry →Share on Facebook

* Note: Between these two conflicting feelings to share JKS’ wonderful LH performance with his fans and to respect JKS’ rights to his performance (I suspect I’ll get blasted by other eels for posting all the videos that I have, not many, erm, just 13?), I have decided to post the LH videos up until Thurs 2 June night (Singapore time), then I’ll remove all except two. Although the video quality and audio is not good, you can keep them for your personal viewing if you wish to but please refrain from re-posting them elsewhere.
The real star of the show is the Lounge H (LH) segment. As always, JKS is the master of the stage – he shines on stage and whipped up the atmosphere. The flashing beams of green laser, combined with the music and JKS’ energetic dance, made the fans feel so high (p.s. I take back my words, JKS can dance quite well ^^ ). JKS is simply wonderful in the Lounge H performance – no words can fully describe that feeling when he’s on stage performing LH.
Somehow, I love to watch JKS swinging that big flag, maybe it’s because he looks cool and manly doing that?

Just some pre-amble before going into the Cri Show… based on my limited experience so far, it is definitely not easy to be a fan.
Pre-requisites of being a fan:
Security at Thai Cri Show was even tighter than Singapore. The lady security staff even patted my back pocket to search for cameras. I had asked Ferlyn to smuggle her slim compact camera in, so that got me worried but we managed to get through. However, in the process of trying to film, I was warned by security 3 times. All the other people were taking videos using their mobile phones, but since I had a camera, I was the only one being stopped. Usually, I wouldn’t be so thick-skinned to engage in something so blatantly illegal, but all I wanted was to take clear videos of JKS.
In the end, since the use of mobile phones was permitted, I resorted to my mobile phone too. That explains why I don’t have videos of the first fan-meeting part, because I was struggling with an unfamiliar camera, various technical problems and the strict security. Not much loss there, since the fan-meeting part is quite similar to other Cri Shows.
Also apologies in advance for the lack of clear pics and videos. I’ll still be posting several videos in later posts. They may not be super clear, but I think they should be enough for a general feel of the Cri Show. Read the rest of this entry →Share on Facebook

27 May is a very eventful day of ups and downs, disappointment and blissful happiness. Ferlyn and I reached Siam Discovery Centre at 1 pm, and after scouting out various possible positions on level 1, 2 and 3, we decided to take up position on level 1 directly on one side of the stage, thinking that we’ll get to see JKS most clearly from there. We waited for hours there. I was having some stomach pain due to a very hurried lunch but I did not even want to move away from my precious position.
Then the worst thing we dreaded happened. At 4 pm, the security came and shooed us away, explaining (I think) that fans cannot wait at that area but must wait inside the allocated barricaded area. I must admit that Security did a great job to direct traffic and maintain orderliness, but the roaming numbers of Security staff diligently doing their job meant that we lost our best viewing position.
