I've been trying to get a like/reply from Fei on Weibo since about... 3 years ago? When I was much freer, I would diligently write stuff to her every single day, and I believe that days when I write to her probably adds up to almost 2 years! So yes, I was really dedicated BUT I wasn't getting anything at all. I felt really disappointed and sad, because there's this Msian fan who has gotten 11 responses from her while I had none. :( This semester has been really busy for me, so I didn't have time nor the brains to think of what to say to her. I remember when Vanessa found my weibo account, she totally LOL-ed because it was like a diary, except everything was addressed to Fei. What to do, what else can I write about daily other than what I did for the day? -_-
I wrote to her before I went to bed. However, I was having insomnia and kept tossing around my bed. Normally, I won't check my phone even if I can't sleep because it's in the other room. But somehow, I had this urge to check it without knowing why.
And somehow, I felt like checking the weibo app. I saw that I had 1 comment on my post, so I was thinking it might be my friends on Weibo wishing me luck since they've done that before on my posts to Fei.
Then, I clicked on it. I couldnt believe my eyes.
Like what happens on TV, I blinked several times and stared at it. I was even wondering whether was it just a roleplayer/impersonator, and then I saw the V sign which is only for verified users (aka famous people).
Here it is on my Weibo
Looking at the time she replied me, I guess it was luck that she looked at her mentions minutes after I posted! :)
I would say this reaction from my Weibo friend is very apt. F.i.n.a.l.l.y she replied me! :')
I have been waiting for this day for such a long time! Honestly, I would have been happy with just a like, but her leaving a comment is something I never expected nor saw coming :') Which made me even happier and thankful! It was very timely as well, because I had my BN2202 finals today which is a module that I find very difficult to grasp and understand. Let's hope her well wishes worked! ^^
Today, 6 Nov, is Irene Kim's birthday! I took 3 selfies with her that I've posted here on my blog before which I haven't uploaded on Instagram, so I decided to make a collage out of them to wish her a happy birthday! :) Since it's also Thursday, I guess it works well as a #throwbackthursday, haha!
So, here's my post on my Instagram
Happy blessed birthday, @ireneisgood! Continue to be the cute, cheerful and happy lady, and keep your head up no matter what! Hope to see you on more international runways, magazine spreads & covers, and brand campaigns! I wish you greatest success in the future and nothing but happiness! Xx.
She liked the Instagram post, which meant she read it! :) Of course, I had expected some sort of recognition from her, but I was also a bit worried that it might buried among other tagged photos of her from other fans... So I'm quite thankful that she saw it!
