Sweet Sunday

I slept the whole day last Saturday. I needed that.

Sunday was a blast! I got to meet Michael Johns and watch Chris Brown and Rihanna in concert. I couldn't think of a better way to spend Sunday.

I went to a nearby mall. I know I couldn't watch Michael Johns perform on a weekday, so I took advantage of the meet and greet set up by one of the sponsors of his visit here in the Philippines. Michael Johns was my first bet in American Idol season 7. I wanted him to win prior to David Cook bug bite. =)

I needed the fan because it was getting hot

During the short encounter, I was shaking but I wanted to tell him something so I was able to say a few words:

Me; Hello Michael. I'm Karen. It's nice meeting you.

MJ: Yeah, me too!

Me: You know what, I wanted you to win. I was rooting for you in American Idol.

MJ: Really?! That's great!

Me: I hope you can come back here for a concert.

MJ: I will. I will.

I was one of the lucky 50 who got an autographed flyer and a photo op. He also told us his Christmas single will be released soon and since he's pretty close to David Cook, David will be here January or February of next year. That is also the same time MJ will be releasing his album. Ain't that sweet? =)

After meeting, MJ, I met up with my sis. We went to Boni High Street for early dinner and we were in the Open Field at 7PM. The Rihanna and Chris Brown concert started a little after 8PM. We were really far from the stage, so we didn't have any decent pictures to share. It was a fun experience. Chris can really shake his booty and I loved it! Rihanna's "Unfaithful" gave me goosebumps too. I have a few complaints but the experience was worth it. They are both great performers!

Hi Karen! What is up with the Sumortin girls meeting American Idols now-a-days? This is me with David Hernandez at a Halloween Party where he was performing: http://www.twitpic.com/jl2d
Maybe you'll keep the luck going and be able to meet David Cook when he's in PI next year.
Thanks for sharing!!
