Around 9pm of September 3 Ate Rizza called me because of this Rain Alert! But I still have 1 exam left the next day which is Sept. 4 so I missed answering her calls because I think I am studying? ) But really I am only browsing my notes because I am too excited knowing that in just 7 days I’m going to see Rain perform! so in the morning of Sept. 4 I saw the missed callsssss as in around 20 missed calls of Ate Rizza on my phone so I texted her and she called me and boom! RAIN is coming here in Manila >.< and I was like O_O because I have exam at 11 am and I need to sign an attendance at 3:30 p.m. we don’t know yet the exact time of his arrival by that time then Jen texted me that Rain’s arrival is 4pm. so I only have 30 mins. to go to the airport 😐 I waited for the attendance sheet and I make sure that I will sign it first then submit my final paper then take the cab going to the airport xD I arrived around 4-ish and thank God that Rain’s arrival is 4:30ish ^^ we already saw him inside the airport but he is still hesitating in going out because he saw the media [or because he saw us? xD] then finally he walked towards his car and in just 8 seconds he disappear =)) the first encounter with Ji Hoon shii! ♥
September 5 – Day 2
Well we haven’t received any Rain alert on this day because this day is supposedly a meet-up for CloudPh to get their tickets and shirts at Gateway. So I just stayed home. Then I received an update that Rain is filming in Cubao which is really near at Gateway and I need hours to prepare and to get there so I just give up the idea on watching his shooting but I am still happy with my CloudPH family because Rain says “Hi!” to them ♥
September 6 – Day 3
Presscon. So an ex-friend of ours promised us that she will take us inside the press conference of Rain’s drama 😐 haha I am being bitter here well I stayed home again because the conference were cancelled. But again CloudPH family got lucky again by staying at the lobby of Manila Hotel. They saw Rain hiding on the pillars because he saw Agent P! =))
September 7 – Day 4
Stayed at home. Shooting is outside Manila
September 8 – Day 5
and once again another epic fail picture ♥ he is DANIEL HENNEY believe me!
Daniel Henney! We stayed at the lobby of Manila Hotel for our “business meeting” haha. But before that! We saw the grumpy old man we were bringing something out from the car so the car stopped right in front of the hotel’s door then our car behind it. We are not aware that the third car is Rain’s car and he walked under the sun because of us xD sorry Ji Hoon shii~ but I am still happy that we are inches away from each other ♥ haha > At the lobby while doing our “business meeting” Daniel Henney came ♥ he is stunning! He is so cool and he even say “Hi!” to the next table where the other CloudPh family were sitting ^^ and of course we saw the grumpy old man again in the pool area then when he goes back to his room xD oh by the way I also saw Jung Jin
September 9 – Day 6
dahil dito nde kami nakapasok sa presscon ) 1 ensaymada + 1 fresh apple juice = 400 PESOS! my gulay~
Press Conference. The day I hated ENSAYMADA! =)) this is the stupidity of forgetting the fangirl rule. RULE #1: don’t go anywhere else! Don’t eat, don’t drink, don’t even think of going to the CR! Ate Rizza already told us to sit at the waiting area of the lobby because Rain will surely pass by that alley. But because Jen and I were so hungry we decided to eat ensaymada and apple juice and paid 400 pesos for that! Each of us! >.< well while eating we saw Rain passing by and we are already happy about it even though we are not allowed to enter the press conference room anymore because we should enter the room before Rain gets in so the security is not that strict. But anyway seeing Rain again is like a miracle for us xD
September 10 – Day 7
became a tour guide for Rain’s Japanese fans yesterday ) Me, @[1814466169:2048:Jhen Magat] and @[1356964939:2048:Erl Geusseppe] had a major major nosebleed =)) no breakfast and no lunch 😐 had our brunch + merienda around 5pm >.< but everything is so worth the stress and tiredness when we saw that there are only 4 copies left at the Odyssey of Rain’s CD because they bought almost all! can you see you the lady holding 3 copies? ♥ RAIN! kailangan mong bumawi samin today ah xD [thanks ate @[1214035452:2048:Marina Flores] for being our photographer!]
Nose bleeding day. Haha this is the day were I used my basic Japanese skills xD we picked up the Japanese fans at the airport and send them to their respective hotels. Then we went to Harrison Plaza to get their tickets and a mall tour at MOA. They treat us for a meal ♥ Arigatou Gozaimasu m(_ _)m thank God that some of them understand English especially Sawako-san because if not then we are doomed! =)) Met my Okaasan and Ate Mars then they showed the Back to the Basic Asian version to the Japanese fans and they wanted to buy their own copy so we went to the odyssey. The cd rack were stormed by the Japanese and left only 4 copies xD then after that we send them again to their hotels. We stayed at Sofitel while waiting for the next flight of the other international fans and arranged some stuffs for the next day. Then we got an update that Rain is currently eating near the hotel. CloudPH Family are readying themselves to eat at the restaurant where Rain is having his dinner. And yes! We were riding the CloudPH van with a logo on both sides =)) it’ll be epic if he saw that! We get hyped when we saw an artist van that looks like the one he is using but sadly we were too late to dine with him so we decided to go straight to the airport to fetch the remaining international fans and to welcome U-Kiss ♥ went home around 2am ^^
September 11 – Day 8 – BIG DAY!
thank you mommy cheeh ♥
Concert. We planned to go at the venue around 8am because the Japanese fans will be there at 5am! The concert will start at 8pm! Lol see their dedication? But of course I am miss late I arrived around lunch time haha =)) but oh well CloudPH is so powerful that we got the first 20 slots at the line xD had lunch with Ate Mars and Jen. Then waited for 6 hours in the line just to get inside the venue and waited another hours before the show begins. I am in the 4th row in the aisle so it is really a good place then KC Montero came to introduced Christian Bautista. Well I am a bitter when it comes to him because of an ex-friend again =)) but anyway he gave a good show and I found myself singing along with him xD then U-Kiss! Actually I don’t like them; I mean I am not a fan. The first show I saw them is I think Arirang Pop in Seoul where they feature Rain. I find them so gay screaming because of Rain 😐 but everything changed when I saw them performed! Eli and Soohyun caught my eyes then Charity Unnie recruited me to be a KissMe and support her chikitings xD she also introduced the coolest dad – Daddy Yo~ he even sent me a direct message on twitter ♥ and because of Ate Charity and Daddy Yo I became a KISSME! Then finally the turn of the man of my life ♥ story ends. I DIED!
September 12 – Day 9
Rest Day. I went home like 1am after the concert and my whole body is just dead tired for standing for half day.
September 13 – Day 10
Rain’s car in front of Manila Cathedral
with b1! lol
the day the shoot were canceled because of RAIN. literally xD
Church. Got a Rain Alert last night that the filming will begin at 7am at Intramuros. Went there around 10am ) but thankfully there are no signs of crews yet 😛 jen and I together with Misako-san and her friends went back to the hotel because Hiroko-san said that Rain is still there >.< so we had another “business meeting” and once again the Japanese fans paid for our drinks >.< and they are the 3 Japanese who lost their wallets and cell phones after the concert but still they love us ♥ isn’t it great? xD
with Fugitive Director!
pic credit: Misako-san
then Misako-san asked us to go with her to ask the Fugitive’s director for a picture. I thought we will only talked to the director if he can take a picture together with Misako-san but instead we took a group picture haha. While Rain is having his lunch inside the lobby we were chatting and looking for other sources for his schedule >:) oh by the way he is wearing a Mickey Mouse “pajama” I mean shorts xD went back to Intramuros then had our lunch near the San Agustin (?) church Hiroko-san wanted to go back to the hotel >.< but we’ve decided to just stay there and just informed them if the shooting crew arrives. Another hour. We were at the door of the church because we already saw the filming crew ♥ then Daniel and Na Young came but still no Rain then got a text messaged from Lou Unnie that Rain is in the Manila Cathedral just meters away from where we were. Then we walked… then decided to run because we don’t want to miss anything haha. Arrived at the venue, saw Rain’s car with B1 standing outside. It started to become cloudy, then thunderbolts and lightning… then the RAIN pours. Literally! But still we stayed with all of our umbrellas up xD we saw Rain inside the car eating while we were there drenching =)) the shooting is packed up 😦 I should be at school today because I need to adjust my subjects >.< and I need to bring home all my things inside the locker or else they will throw everything away. but this is a once in a lifetime experience for me and besides i can still buy all those stuffs again =))
September 14 – Day 11
the place where Rain shoots at the lobby! and yes we became extras 😛 i just hope that our faces are captured by the camera xD
Went to school to enroll but I saw the line and decided to go to the hotel instead xD
GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE. The day I learned to love ENSAYMADA! Rain Alert again ♥ Some CloudPh family decided to take a rest because they also have their own lives and they need to work! But because I knew this is the last day because we’ve got information that his flight is on the 15th 😦 I went to the lobby for our “business meeting” and stayed there for a few hours then we had the most thrilling car cashed with Rain’s car =)) we were on the taxi following his car >:) Manila Cathedral. They only had a few minutes of shooting and we became extras 😛 we were sitting right in front of the church while they are filming in front of the park xD hopefully we were captured by the camera lol then we go back to the hotel. Rain is currently filming inside the champagne room of the hotel and we are so sure that he will walk to the lobby going to his room. We stayed at the lobby and we were thinking of going out to eat because the food inside is so expensive for us. And we were eating there for a couple of days >.< but then again decided to wait for Ate Rizza to talked about our own shooting haha. Ordered ensaymada again and iced tea because I think that is the cheapest >.< yes 400 pesos for that is the cheapest 😐 then after an hour someone approached us to just stay for awhile because they will be filming… FUGITIVE! We got the best place ♥ Rain is standing for like 3 feet away from us. He smiled to us 3 times! This is the best day of life. I can smell him >.< or is it just me being a paranoid? =)) then after the filming they had the sent off party and meet and greet 🙂 I am so happy that Dahly finally met him face to face ♥ after that we decided to stay for awhile. Then another Rain Alert update came ♥ Rain will be filming at Macapagal which is really near xD so we decided to follow him ♥ continuation on the next day! haha
September 15 – Day 12
the car used by Rain ^^
Goodbye Ji Hoon. It is already pass 12 and we were still at Macapagal. Rain already left and we decided to go back to the hotel because the crew said that Rain will be filming another scene. But sadly Rain already went straight to the airport 😦 he really became a Fugitive. T_T so we decided to go home but Hiroko-san, Sawako-san, Yuki-san and Ate Ella still went to the airport and they saw Rain for 2 seconds lol.
THE DAY WITH RAIN ENDS HERE 😦
Can I go back to September 4-14 again?
THE AFTERMATH. INSTANT CELEBRITY!
September 16 – Rated K.
Rated K shooting
RAIN’s heaven xD
lalong naparanoid si Papa nung nakita niya to >.< Ate Rizza told us that there will be a shooting for Rated K ♥ so we decided to come and pack my Rain stuffs in my maleta xD we thought that there are no interviews at all >.< but then when we arrived they told us that Korina Sanchez will be interviewing us -_-; the interview will go on air later. Sunday September 19 at 7:30 p.m.
September 17 – TheBeat
shooting for QTV.
After shooting for Rated K Ate Rizza asked us if we can do another interview for QTV ^^ they wanted a college student and thinking that almost all Rain fans are young adults and ajhumma’s we have no choice but to be interviewed again xD Rox and I went to GMA studio then went to Tita Cathleen house for the interview xD the funny thing is when the guard asked for our ID we both showed a DLS-CSB ID =)) that is the only time we found out that we were studying at the same school xD Tita Cath is so cool~ she even file a new legal name with RAIN on it ♥ I thought I will not be interviewed because when I am talking to Gelo [the researcher and cousin of Ranger White] he said that it is only a SOLO interview 😐 so I thought it is only Rox who will be interviewed >.< this will be shown on September 27 at 10 p.m. QTV “The Beat” I am not sure if everything is in place >.< I am really bad at remembering things 😦 but still this wrap up my 14 days of making RAIN as the center of my life.
THANK YOU EVERYONE! you know who you are ❤
i already miss having a business meeting with my CloudPH family 😦
Thank you to the Japanese fans for the gifts ❤
i miss the Japanese fans who are really game in stalking Rain together with us. i miss Hiroko-san saying “DIBA?” =))
*I might edit this if I have time and if I remember something 😛
**For those people asking me for Rain’s schedule sorry but everything is really confidential ^^
