Twilight Coverage in Tokyo : Fan pictures in Tokyo Part 2 (Dinner with the Cast)
Here are some more photos from fans Abee & Nina! They are from the Philippines and are studying in Japan. Abee took some great photos while queueing up and during the fan meeting! Believe me they are good! And as for Nina she is whom we (all of Twilight fandom..hehehe) totally envy! Grrrr… She was one of the 6 lucky fans that got to have dinner with Robert, Kristen and Taylor! Well Nina has pictures and she has kindly allowed us to share with you! Check them out!
Here is Nina’s account of her ‘dinner experience’ with the Twilight cast!
“Im Nina Reyes, Abee’s friend. We are currently pursuing our masters degree in Japan.
Yep, I’m such a lucky girl… I didnt expect such luck will happen to me on that very rainy Friday. When I posted my photos in facebook, all my friends emailed me and expressed how envious they were upon seeing my picture. hahahaha.. some of then even suspected that I photoshoped the pic. hehehe.. such a pathetic suspicion..
Anyway, let me recount the story behind that one day fantasy. I used to visit Robert Pattinson’s fan sites and one day I saw the advertisement about their fan meeting in Tokyo. I immediately told Abee about it and she searched the details of the said event. We enlisted ourselves for the fan meeting thru email. The next day we got the confirmation that we can attend the meeting and we were even allowed to bring a friend with us.
Come Friday, we arrived at the Ebisu Garden place around 11am to get our passes/ID for the fan meeting. At 230pm, we started to line up for the red carpet arrival and waited for 2 hours under the cold weather and heavy sleet. When the stars arrived we did not have the chance to have their autograph since it was really really crowded. After the red carpet arrival we headed to the fans meeting venue.
We were kinda shocked upon seeing that they held the meeting in a small venue as only a few people were given the chance to attend the event. As the host mentioned, out of 2000 people, only 75 were chosen for this up close encounter with the stars. Although I already know that there will be a suprise dinner for 6 lucky people, the thought of getting it never really crossed my mind.
When the 20 seat numbers were randomly called, I was so surprised that my seat number was included in the list. I went out of my mind that I even forgot that my friends handed me all their twilight memorabilias so as to have it signed if in case I’ll be included in the lucky 6.
The lucky 6 were chosen thru “pulling the strings” thing. It took me around 5 seconds to realize that the other end of the string that I was holding belongs to Robert Pattinson!!!! OMG!!! I was in deep ecstasy that moment that I cant remember how I managed to go to the dinner venue (btw, the dinner venue is the building, though im not sure if its a hotel, in front of the red carpet arrival). We were escorted by the organizers in a function room designed for the dinner. We settled down for awhile and waited for the twilight stars to come (btw, its televise but I dont know what channel). All of us were still in shock and so overwhelmed by the fact that we’re going to meet 3 of the the most sought after people nowadays. After 5 mins, the stars entered the room and stood beside us (robert pattinson on my left and kristen on my right, holy crap!). Though I felt that my tongue got terribly twisted, I was able to say a few words to robert, that is, “I just saw you in the Oscars awards last Sunday and now I cant believe that Im sitting right next to you”, and then he answered with a grin “o really, you know I was so nervous at that time”. Our conversation was cut short as they were requested to roam around and talk to the other lucky ones.
I was also able to have a short talk with taylor lautner who was sooo friendly and perky. I asked him about his preparations for the new moon movie and he told me that he hit the gym everyday to gain some weight and muscles since the Jacob role requires him to look very masculine. He even told me that if sum1 will ask whether I belong to Team Edward or Team Jacob, I should answer “Team Jacob” (I didn’t respond on this since Im really a die-hard robert pattinson fan.. hehehe).
I didn’t get the chance to talk to Kristen since there was only a few minutes left and I havent got an autograph from Robert. So after a pic with Kristen, I headed immediately to Robert to ask for a photo with him and have all the twilight memorabilia autographed. He even asked for my name and put a nice signature on the memorabilias. Before they left, they bid a nice farewell to us.
So there was my brief but truly memorable encounter with the stars.
The Menu – an 8 course Gourmet meal. WOW!!!
The Precious loot!!
