I'm Going To Taipei!!!! Woohoo!!!






I finally, FINALLY, got it!!!!

we got it from Ning Zhi, a seller in Singapore who gave it to us at SGD243 each - i know that's a bit too much since the tickets were originally priced at 2800 NT or around SGD125 , but the seats are worth it! they're Purple 2B, Row 6 Seats, baby!!!

you would understand that this price is acceptable to us if you knew what Baliz, Mommy Bulls and I went through just to get these tickets!!!


>> of course, we tried buying online through the Era Ticket Website on that faithful day of August 30. Yes, that's right..if you check the site, it's all in Chinese and we had to google translate everything just to understand anything on it! thanks to the help of fabfangirl and arachieri, i was able to register and all.. but alas, after only 5 hours of being on sale in the site, all the tickets got sold out! it was all gone even before i can enter my visa numbers T_T *sighs* such a depressing day...

>> so i had no choice but to scout from ticket auctions and to post a desperate cry of help to Arashi Communities arashi_on and a_ra_shi, and to JE-Selling Communities jboys4sale, je_philippines and je_sales, to name only a few.. (i know spam/x-posting is bad, but i was desperate...hontou ni gomen ne?)

>>since i left my email addy in those posts, i got several email offers but at first they were all level 3 seats (1000NT-1500NT). we really wanted 2800NT seats since we're coming all the way to Taiwan for this, so we might as well make the best out of the whole trip. and finally, i got an email from a Beatrice Song (based in Singapore) saying she knows someone who can sell me Blue 2B seats! the best part is, she's selling at the original price, 2800NT!!!

>>after several attempts to make a meet-up arrangement (the direct seller is in Taipei - a fangirl named Jolly), we just couldn't make it happen because Mommy Bulls' cousin lives in Taichung (or is it Tainan), which is 4 hours away from Taipei!

>>so we're back to square 1: finding another seller.. *sighs* we just couldn't afford those being auctioned because they were really way too expensive, and most of them don't agree to meet-ups and are not willing to ship abroad..

>>then the day came when i received that email from romance_sparkle from Singapore selling me a pair of 2800NT purple 2b tickets for SGD275..i didn't take it since that's still too expensive for us, so she finally referred us to Ning Zhi (also from Singapore), and after some negotiations, we closed the deal at SGD243! ;D

>>we contacted Mommy Bulls' friend in Singapore, Hazel to meet Ning Zhi and they did last Thursday, 7pm @ Central Station. Hazel says Ning Zhi is a really nice girl and also quite young too - only 18! I'm still in contact with Ning Zhi, just in case there's a chance for us to meet in person before the concert in Taipei Arena :D

>>as i type here right now, Hazel is on her way to SingPost to mail us the tickets!!! wheeee!!!


...it's all to see these boys!!!

a BIG thanks to all the people helped me and made this all possible!!!

Btw, anyone here from Manila going to the Taipei con too? Want to meet-up? Email me at pre.atienza@yahoo.com ;D

I also want to ask if anyone here knows about the following:

1. When and what time exactly are the boys arriving in Taipei?

2. Are cameras or videocams allowed inside the Taipei Arena? I seriously doubt it, but will binoculars be okay?

3. Will they be selling official concert goods/merchandise there at the Arena? Will they be overpriced and is it hard to get (like will they be instantly sold out)?


Yoroshiku onegaishimasu! :D
