Triple Celebration with Michael Christian Martinez


There are rare moments in our lives which you will never expect to happen in your whole lifetime. One of those moments is this. Like DUH, who in the right mind would think that an ordinary fangirl like me would be able to dance in front of the David Archuleta. It was really a dream come true I tell you! And after that, who in the right mind (again) would have thought that I would be able to dance for Michael Christian Martinez? Nope, not me. But DUHHH. It happened. It really, really did happen.

And in this triple celebration, I never expected for Michael to remember me (more on this a little later). This is a very late blog post and I think you should get used to this "late posts" of mine by now. But anyway, the celebration is so fun and so memorable and I just have to share it to everyone. I'll let the photos do most of the talking so get ready for the heavy photos under the cut.


**random unexpected moment: Arthur Fiedler's Romeo & Juliet's Love theme is playing right now as I am typing this. It's the music that Michael used in his Winter olympic moment, which, by the way, is the same music I used when I danced in his grand fans day. heh~**

When fangirls fangirl.


I went to the location early because we'll be helping Tita Bess with setting-up and all before the Team Pinoy Mikees arrive and before Michael and his mom arrive.


And then the Prince of Ice is now entering the vicinity. Oh gosh, he's so hot and adorable. Just look.


Oh goodness, that smile. 





In case you're wondering why he's looking up, well, we're at the 2nd floor throwing/showering the rose petals. <3


 You can tell that he's so happy and so excited. I can tell because his smile is as big as ours and because he's so friendly and his heart is as innocent as David's. A quality to adore. <3



See? I told you we were "petal showering". haha.



Michael with his standee. This is so cute. Let's pinch the fluffiest thing near us to release the cutiiie "kilig" adrenaline.


I'm seriously attracted to how Michael stands. His feet is always turned out. I noticed this in our first ever photo together (find it here) and being the vigilant me, I noticed that the way we both stand is the same --- feet turned out. I guess that's because of skating (for him) and ballet (for me).



Picture taking before the program officially starts.



Look at all of these people taking Michael's photo. And look at me at the back smiling (or was I laughing?!!) like there's no tomorrow. I don't like how I look like here. lol.








Check me out you guys. I'm staring at Michael. I'm making titig to the highest level.




This is that moment when I wasn't that aware on what was happening because I wasn't really listening. But I was staring at Michael (notice that he's in front of all the people, and I am at the back in a standing position since all the TPM <Team Pinoy Mikees> were seated. Then I noticed that Michael was staring at me too. I thought I was hallucinating so I said to the nearest person beside me, "bakit parang nakatingin yata si michael dito" (why is it like michael is staring at us?). So when I noticed that he was staring at me again, I smiled. And to my great surprise, he smiled back. AND IT WAS AN OMG MOMENT. I know, I know. It sounds insane but it's not everyday that a history-maker-first-Filipino-winter-olympian smiles at you. haha.



Say hello to the Team Pinoy Mikees!! (Plus the Archuleta fans-slash- Martinez fans plus Michael's mom) :">


Then this photo happened during lunch time. Oh yes, I just need to post this again. :") Nung pag-lapit ko sa kanya to get my photo taken while everyone's getting their food, he was like, "uy ballet!". so then i was like, "ay naalala mo pa!" in my kinikilig voice.

And with that, I proved myself that I wasn't hallucinating when he stared and smiled at me in which I made a theory about it. He remembered me. heh. Oh the power of God's given talent. And now I miss dancing ballet again.





Lunch time! I just seriously love omnomnom time. teehee~



Team Kusina.
Every time we're at Tita Bess house having parties and such, we always eat at the kitchen. haha. :-)














Games.





Autograph signing.







What a fun, fun gathering this is. I just wish I had posted this entry a little early. hehe. But I realized that the important thing is, preserving memories to the fullest. Hence, I'll still be posting this (plus a few more VERY LATE blog entries in the weeks to come).

One of the reasons why I really adore Michael is because he's doing everything he can and he's doing the best he can to reach his dreams. He's such an inspiration. He's so young but he's already living his dreams! God works so great in him. :"> Also, he's so nice and friendly and so humble!
