STGCC 2011, Kipi moment
*Edited with video*

I saved the best for the last. The biggest reason why I spent $10 good dollars for entrance ticket at 4pm was to get a chance to meet Kipi !
After our accidental meeting on Saturday, it sparked a hope of possibly meeting her again the next day. So, like all the other foreign guests, I decided to get her a souvenir. (My theory: If I don’t think I’ll get a chance to meet the guest, it would be pointless for me to get them a souvenir )
Last year I got Kaname a bottle of Kaya spread and the year before Bakwas and mini fried Shrimp rolls. Alodia got a small Merlion plushie keychain with postcards. Angela, the other AFARCC and Animax Halloween party participants all got a Singapore keychain. Maria and I also gave Takasou and Darknight a box of Mooncakes. Aira is the only one I forgot =x
(.... Haha I didn't realise I gave out so much stuffs OoO; )
Anyway, i gave Kipi these. Mini roasted pig Mooncakes with lotus paste filling. After reading her interview about the fruit jam, I'm now afraid she might not eat this at all =.=|||||||
Cut the story short, after the Cosplay competition ended, like all the other hopeful fans, I gathered around the stage fence for a chance to meet her.
This is my loot. Signed event brochure. Oh, the 2 items behind are also stuffs I got from STGCC ^^;;;

Remember what I said about cosplaying to meet Kipi xD? My strategy worked *coughschemingcough* and she squealed when she saw my Haruhi cosplay ( Kudos to Fandom yeahs! ) xD
I requested for her to sign my brochure and after that I gave her the Omiyage. She then thanked me in a spontaneously cute manner and proceed to grab my digital camera for a picture together *score points*.
Don't believe? I have it on, guess what? VIDEO!!!!
Which reaffirmed a thought I have about life. No matter how far you get in life, never forget your humility. People don’t respect talent, they respect someone who respects them.
And thus I end my perfect STGCC experience. Peace out!
