Well, me and firelit went for the handshake session at AFAX and heres my account of the session in . Let's hope firelit posts his version too :>.
Before the handshake session, some SH members who got autographs from the other artistes said that artistes would sign on the spot and talk with you while signing.
So they suggested we line up at the back of the queue so that we can interact with SCANDAL longer.
Hence, we went into the queue and kept asking those who came in after us to go in front of us lol.
I also decided to say "Konsato gambatte ne (Best of luck for the concert)" to SCANDAL.
So, a staff from AFAX came beside the queue to check the email with the tickets.
Once he reached us, there were still people coming in behind us and after checking, me and firelit got position 50 and 51 respectively.
Anyway, we just waited and along the way, bemnage came to us and told us that we just gonna shake SCANDAL's hands and get the pre-signed poster from Eisuke.
So we just continue moving forward in the queue until it was my turn.
Then, the same staff who checked the tickets previously asked me to take out the tickets to double-check.
I had already kept the tickets in my bag so I had to dig them out again.
firelit was still holding on to his tickets so he was signalled by the guy to go on first.
Anyway out of the corner of my eyes, I think I saw SCANDAL chuckling at me D:.
So, I managed to dig the tickets out and went to shake SCANDAL's hands.
When I was shaking RINA, MAMI, and TOMO, they said arigatou so I replied arigatou back.
At this time my mind was already starting to blank out hence the crappy reply ^^".
Until I reached HARU, I knew I had to say the "Konsato gambatte ne" sentence.
But once I reached her, my mind totally blanked out and I tried finding the word "Konsato" in my mind.
I could see Eisuke beside her was ready to pass me the poster but stopped when I was trying to find the word.
In the end after a short pause, I managed to say out a gibberish "Concert" and HARU replied "Konsato".
Then I remembered and said "Konsato gambatte ne", with stammers
The whole SCANDAL said arigatou and I went to take the poster from Eisuke.
I told him "Eisuke kakkoii" (I didn't say kawaii because I think its kinda funny for a guy to say it) but I think it was soft and not sure did he managed to hear what I said.
Then, I went off with the poster and met with the SH group.
Anyway, that's my close and kinda embarrassing encounter with SCANDAL~
Hope that I can see them again soon in Singapore
In other news, SCANDAL do have soft and smooth hands even when they play instruments :D.
