Retarded Luck!

Posted on: May 27, 2008

Today is awesome! Really really awesome! And I thought last night’s concert of Hillsong United would be the biggest highlight of my life (atleast this week!) Actually, it is… since I’ve booked our tickets a month ago and I was waiting for this concert like CRAZY! And finally, last night it happened… it was a very uplifting concert indeed…very nice.

But what could be better than this?!?

U-huh.. that’s me with Hillsong United’s Jad Gillies! It was really a simple case of retarded luck and me, being at the right place at the right time. Actually, there’s a funny story behind this.

Me and my colleague went to Edsa Shang this afternoon to attend an exhibitor’s meeting. On our way to the hotel, we saw this group loading some equipment in a coaster bus (at the side entrance) and I thought I saw Joel Houston (the band’s frontman) but shrugged the idea since it seemed a little off (but hey, the concert was in Araneta so it’s likely that they would stay in Shang or Crowne Plaza or some hotel nearby). So we went inside the hotel and there, at the lobby was a small crowd having photo ops with i-don’t-know-who and when we got closer, I saw this guy… I knew I recognize his face and the guy with the curly hair (the drummer)… we were seated at the Upper Box last night so it was kind’a difficult to recognize their faces. Without even thinking, I marched off to this guy (who was Jad apparently) and asked if I could have a photo with him. I said thanks, shook his hand and said goodbye.

And all throughout the meeting, my mind was wandering off, thinking hard if it was really Hillsong that I just saw and met at Shang’s lobby. Jazz, my officemate, said it’s okay if it wasn’t Hillsong, at least we know the guy is famous for sure (as there were a lot wanting to have their photos taken with him). Hehe.. Good Riddance.

The moment we got back from the meeting, I immediately checked the internet to familiarize myself with the Hillsong band members’ faces and lo and behold, it was really him! (ahh, my heart is still pounding!) This was just great. Thank you God!

Insane right? v(^___^)v
