Yokohama Christmas Event I

Hi Hi sisters ...... I think you are eager waiting to know more about the event - how Yong Joon looked like, how he is doing and what he said to his family. It was very emotional for me and I am sorry I am too overwhelmed seeing how beautiful and happy he looked. I am not really in a (physical) state to write tonight so I'll just post these pictures (eventhough I know you wanted to see the prince himself, not the venue) and come back to write about the details, sorry! bb has posted some pictures of the satellite broadcast, I am sure more will be out soon when the sisters starting going home and post them.

Yokohama arena

The longest lineup I've ever seen. Even longer than at Osaka Kyocera Dome!

Reporters everywhere

Seas of crowds shivering and waiting to enter

White tents set up selling Yong Joon's goods
Nikkan Sports special issue - paper for today

Inside the venue, more crowds

SkyPerfecTV booth set up for taking subscription orders

For the 3 months of Yonsama Matsuri :)

Postcard set from the Osaka TWSSG Premium Event for sale

Winter Sonata 2 Pachinko booth (I risked my life while taking this picture, quite a few angry ajummas thought I was taking their pictures. Sigh, not easy being a blogger)

Baba san and I have settled in our seats. Haha, see how much leg rooms we had! and not too far from the screens and stage too :)

The Christmas-y stage

A look back at the Arena when the concert is finished

Really exhausted now, I'll write about Yong Joon when I feel better, ok?

jaime said...

Dear xiaoyi,

I actually have to thank you and bb for posting the pictures and vods so quickly. I didn't take any pictures while the concert was on as it is prohibited. Haha, thanks to the brave sisters who are generous to share with others.

love .. jaime

bb said...

take care now...

Hi Jaime,

I have to apologise for having been so insensitive to your feeling. When I went to your place when it was over, you were still basking in the afterglow of the meeting with HRH, but this silly ajunma kept talking to you withoug understand your state of mind.

Hope you feel better soon and find time to continue your accout. I'm
the one who really look forward to reading your post.

bb said...

wow... cloudnine, was jaime so 'bedazzled' by wuri yong joon?

me too, so looking forward to reading her account :)

wish we could witness how playful and mischievous he is... :p

bb said...

and... you know, looking at the various pics that fans have taken of the event, it then struck me that 10,000-strong is really quite a big crowd... i suppose it must have looked quite 'grand'.

and whole afternoon, whole evening, i kept thinking to myself, i should have been there. i could have been there.

sighs :(

Hyds said...

I was thinking of this event all day and really proud to know you and other sisters had been to the event. Really happy. I hope you had a great time. I was wishing I was there today (sigh) thousand miles away. Again thank you so much for all the efforts greatly appreciated. Lots of love, hyds

Hi dear Jaime!

I'm so glad you were able to be there and experience the event first-hand --- you are sooooo lucky!! hahaha

And thanks so much for taking the time to post this for those of us who couldn't be there -- how lost we would be without precious sisters like you!

I hope you're practicing some good self-care, getting enough rest, eating well -- once you've done all of that, THEN write some more, ok??? (Take care of YOU first!!)

Looking very forward to reading/seeing more when you're up to it!

much love,

Thanx so much Chinggu for the partial report and we'll be waiting on all fours for the rest next time.

Please have a very, very good rest to keep all those vigor and funnybones in you working through all the details.

Happy start of the week and I do know that IT will be a happy start for you after last nite!

Dear Jaime

Thank you so very much for sharing with us even though you're still tired and emotional.

You had seemed a little down at the Osaka event. So, I'm so glad you're so happy this time.

jaime said...

hi hi princess bb,

yes, this event was very heartwarming eventhough Yong Joon was there only on air :)

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Dear Hyds,

Thank you for reading my account of this wonderful event. Please do not feel despaired that you could not attend. Hope I don't sound like a mother, life has so many twists and turns, we never know what our paths are in life. If you read back, you'll know that I lived in Toronto just one year ago with nothing much on BYJ. Never in my wildest dream that I thought I would be living in Japan now and in the center of all BYJ activities. So, I know you will have your turn in attending these events, I hope it'll be soon for you. Fighting!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Hi Hi deka,

Nice to hear from you. Thank you for visiting here. Love to see your posted pics and gifs in soompi.

love ... jaime

jaime said...

oh my dear cloudnine,

It's not you, it's my fault. I never learned from past mistakes and still do not wear enough clothes. Maybe subsconsciously, I refuse the idea of standing and waiting out in the cold :) I hope you, kiyomi san and the nice Kobe lady had a nice dinner, chatting about yong joon.

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Thank you so much coco for your understanding and advice. Yes, without health, how do we have enough strength to follow our prince? Please take care of yourself too chief :)

love ... jaime

jaime said...

jaime said...

hi shrimpy,

thanks for dropping by and write me a comment. I enjoy reading you ladies' exchanges in soompi :)

love .. jaime

jaime said...

dear s'pore fan,

thank you for remembering I was a little lost after the osaka event. this time eventhough yong joon was not there in person, but we have him all to ourselves (big smile)!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

dear regie,

thanks for your concern. I guess those fans were sensitive whenever someone is holding up a camera to check the view. Hehe, I only have my eyes on HRH, I was not even looking at them. Please don't worry, I didn't pay much attention to these things anyway. Please take care, ok?

Have a Merry Christmas!

love ... jaime

jaime said...

Dear Yee,

Thank you once again for keeping me in mind on your daughters' trip. I hope they will have a wonderful time in Japan. I'll write you soon.

love ... jaime
