edit: Just checked twitter, seems like they arrived in Japan an hour ago. Rina's tweet 30min ago: また会いに行く行くから待っててね！I LOVE SINGAPORE
And her photo of Merlion!
edit2: Seems like my friend doesn't know the content of the interview. Sorry
AFA X review - SCANDAL awesome performance in SINGAPORE! [Page 3 of 6]

Last thursday we went to receive SCANDAL at the airport with a board that DUMMIbears and the others had made and signed by the present SH members,and it fell to me to be the one to advertise it blatantly when SCANDAL arrived.When they did arrive,they went by quickly,not stopping to take photos or anything,just get to their van quickly.However,i stuck out my arm as far as i could without it snapping lika tree branch,and HARUNA glanced at it and walked past,then RINA glanced at it,looked up at me and asuna respectively and smiled.For some reason her smile then didn't register in my brain.This is pretty much what happened on their first day.I might add that i think they had no makeup on.
And just to add something,ken told us that the girls wanted to start rehearsing straight away when they got to the location,but in the end they went for dinner first,and then started rehearsing till late night.Tough lives,they have.
Anyways,on the next day,Friday,it was their rest day or summink,and they went sightseeing and shopping and stuff,so at least they get to do something relaxing and fun.Saturday,they were in the AFA convention hall for the maid cafe interview.So,we didn't actually know about it until asuna texted me saying that MAMI has tweeted that they're going to have omu rice in the maid cafe.It was then that we zoomed to the cafe and.....Well,to cut a long story short,everyone was spazzing when they walked past us into the cafe,just about a metre in front of us,though they looked tired.So the interview went on inside,blablabla,and then they came out again and it was here where it happened,what i call the staring.Coz right,RINA was walking with her head up and smiling at everyone,so when she looked at me she had this kind of "Eh.....?" look on her face,like she's seen me from somewhere.It was fleeting,and after she eh'ed she smiled at me and well,i was spazzing like the git i am.After that i was thinking that maybe,just maybe,RINA remembers my face from the HK event and from the airport,so she went "Eh....?" is what i think,anyways.Nothing more for the first day of AFA.Oh,ken had an interview with them,for his website,ani-culture.net and he said they looked tired during the interview so.....Yeah.Tough lives,eh?
Second and last day of AFA,and the concert in the night.We were milling around the hall as usual when Kai texted me and told me to go to the small stage in the area because SCANDAL were judges for a karaoke event there.So again,we dashed there and got pretty good positions to look at the girls.This is where the staring happens again,coz wj and kaito were making noise after TOMOMI noticed us and smiled at us,and the noise got RINA's attention too.She looked in our direction and smiled and waved but didn't really maintain any eye contact.But,seems to me that throughout the whole karaoke event she kept shifting glances back in our direction and finally looked at me directly.I managed to clunk something into place in my brain and quirked a smile up.She smiled really widely back at me,and well,i was pinching yagi after the smile lol.I was thinking yet again that she remembers my face.So,the event went on and then suddenly Eisuke and another staff member came up on stage and starting singing,and that got the girls laughing.I might add that they looked much more refreshed than the previous day.Anyways,i later found out that Eisuke and the staff member sang to buy the organisers some time to tabulate the scores for the event.So anyways,when SCANDAL presented the certificates of appreciation to the contestants,Eisuke&Co. got one too because they sang,and this was where i shouted "EISUKE KAWAII!!!!!" and that got the girls laughing again,so i was feeling pretty good about that.
So after that they went down from the stage to go back into their quarters,and i noticed that TOMO was slapping some people's hands when they held it out so i thought like,"Why not?" HARUNA and MAMI walked past first,and they didn't look at my hand lol.TOMOMI was the one i hoped would slap my hand,and she did,much to my delight,and immediately after that,RINA slapped my hand too,and then went off without heeding the calls of the other guys holding their hands out.So.............I dun need to go into details about how i reacted,you all can ask asuna,lame,wj,kaito,whoever was present there.It was then that i thought that "Okay,i think she's remembering me from somewhere,else she wouldn't have done that." And yes,i did wash my hand afterwards,because i had to EAT.yagi and the others were pulling at me and wrestling with me after RINA slapped my hand and ignored everyone else,so they all went "EEEEEEEEEEEEUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEE" so nau i'm thinking,"Hey,maybe nau RINA knows my name!" LOL
Concert,i needn't go into that,it was as usual for SCANDAL,and that means fantastic.My ears are still a little muffled nau lol.
After the concert MAMI tweeted that this was going to be their last day in Singapore,so i checked the JAL schedule and found a flight that leaves today for Tokyo,Narita airport at 0820,which means that the girls will probably be at the airport at 6 plus.
So nau's the airport part.I arrived at the airport at around 5.30am,so i had an hour to play with.I surfed the net on my mobile and checked twitter every 10 minutes to see if MAMI was tweeting anything about going to the airport nau.She didn't.Still,they arrived at the airport at around 6.30am.This was when i found out that i wasn't the only one there sending them off,coz the 3 people sitting right beside me stood up and held up a "I Love SCANDAL" board.The girls looked at it and arigatou-ed.At this point i wanna add that the girls looked tired,quite tired.I was looking at RINA especially,and her eyebags were....well,as bad as mine.Plus they had no makeup on.My bet is that they,like me,stayed up the whole night and preferred to sleep on the plane back instead of sleeping 4 hours and waking up shitfaced and feeling even more lethargic.HARUNA tweeted about having a cocktail at 1.35am.I dun think they have gotten enough sleep,again like me,in the last few days either.
So.....They went to the check-in counter,and these two girls went up to a staff member to ask something,and he in turn asked Eisuke something,he agreed i guess,and then the girl started talking to SCANDAL.She gave them a letter or something,and just talk talk talk talked all the way.By this time i was shitting myself whether or not to go up and ask for a picture or something.I finally decided to ask,so i took my balls out of my pocket and went up to Eisuke.This is how the ensuing conversation went.
Eug: "I'd like to take a picture with the girls,is that okay?"
Eisuke: "Ah,i'm sorry,but you can't.The girls have no makeup on and such."
Eug: "Ah,i can't?"
Eisuke: "Yes,you can't."
So after that i went back dejected to where i was standing,and continued watching the girl talk to SCANDAL and Eisuke loading the luggage.Then i thought that maybe i can talk to them for a while,too,but i was nervy coz they looked like they might leave any moment.So i hardened my balls again and went up to Eisuke again.
Eug: "Uhm,suimasen.Since i can't take a picture-"
Eisuke: "Yes,you really can't."
Eug: "Yes,i understand that.But is it okay if i talk to them for a little while?"
Eisuke: "I'm afraid that's difficult.The luggage has already been check-ed in."
Eug: "Ah,there's no time,is there?"
Eisuke: "Yes,no more time."
Eug: "Okay,thank you."
So i went back to where i was standing,again,more dejected then ever,and watching the girl talk to SCANDAL for several more minutes,the mouthy git.Then SCANDAL had to leave.My only consolation was that when they turned round to go into the customs they turned to wave at me too,RINA especially,she was facing in another direction initially then she noticed me and turned to wave at me.Dun think she can make out who i am at that distance,though.Maybe?I dunno.
Anyways,so that's that about the sending off part.I think it was a failure on my part,i shoulda gone up to Eisuke early and asked if i can speak to the girls.Still,no use crying over spilled milk.At least i guessed the flight correctly.There'll be other chances i hope.And i also hope that RINA remembers me lol.
All in all,it was a very fun event for SH,and for the girls i think....?
