I'd say props to the way b7klan did the hi-touch sesh.
For one, they didn't have like 200-300-odd VIP tix meaning last night's sesh was so not rushed (one of the guys overheard security mentioning there were 150 VIP tix holders for London). In Singapore, we were herded along and at most it was two seconds of arigatō/saikō da yo/etc. Yesterday, albeit it was brief, like what hybrid3415 alluded to, there was some degree of verbal interaction and response, not just a cold 'hi there' and off you go.
When I hi-5'ed, TIMO I just told her in Japanese with no preamble whatsoever, "Do you remember me?" (I know she wouldn't) but her response was beautiful because she did do a double take. To not hold up the queue, I told her "Singapore. 2013." (that time I asked her that SCANDAL should play the UK some day) which elicited a response from her and MAMI, who was listening to what I was saying to TIMO.
When I gave MAMI her present, there was even time to tell her that I have a "little something" for her to which she said thanks, and at this particular moment, it was RINA was going "WooooWW!" (I dunno whether because it was because of the gift or because I had a... err... Funassyi hand puppet holding the gift. Just don't ask. HAHAHAHA).
Way better than the rush job I experienced in 2013. Once again, superb VIP experience last night!
