It is quite rare for us to come across stories of personal encounters from international Gengfans, let alone the opportunity and privilege to have this fan’s account posted here…
Here is one very devoted and determined Gengfan who traveled all the way from her hometown of Mataram, Indonesia to Hong Kong…Not only determined but also a very lone Gengfan in that part of the world..Prior to the Fan-meeting in HK, she had been to Singapore and Thailand for those two fan-meetings..From Singapore, she followed HG to Bangkok,Thailand.
This time she went to HK..Just to give you a visual on the distance which she traveled to meet her favourite guy..In the first map, you will find Nusa Tenggara in central Indonesia.You can see the island of Bali there and beside it you will find the island of Lombok..
Now in Lombok, you can find the town of Mataram towards the west side of the island..that’s where our friend hails from..Do you now have you an idea on the distance and journey she made just to meet Han Geng in Hong Kong..? hehehe..!! The journey wasn’t easy for her, it took her 9 hours starting from her home!
So let’s go to her fan-account below..She personally wrote this as she wanted to share with other Gengfans her exhilarating experiences in Hong Kong..
Hangeng is so different. He is an artist, an entertainer, a singer, an actor.. all in one.. how can I say? He is just too perfect in many views you see. He is so charming, warm, adorable, and cute.. hahahaha.. hangeng “sansui”..(3 yrs.old)
I don’t know how I should start my story about my 2nd meet with him. I thought that I would not meet him again, but I BELIEVE, God has another way to make me happy.
I can say that this Hongkong Fansmeeting was the most tiring one. Why? Because I had to spend almost 9 hours trip from Mataram to Hongkong (transit in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur). Hongkong is a beautiful city, so nice and clean, but not as same as Singapore and Thailand.
First, my friend, Candy, booked me a ticket for Hongkong fansmeeting on 29th Jan for the fansigning, and 30th Jan for the fansmeeting. I thought that I could attend both because my another friend, Anggi, booked me a flight ticket thus I could be there too. Then, there was a change in my schedule going to Hongkong. The airlines which I booked the ticket from, was bankrupt. So, I had to look for another airlines, and for me, the price was so expensive. I must go.. no reason to cancel it because I kept my promise to Candy because she bought me the ticket.. but one thing is that, I have to sacrifice one event, fansigning or fansmeeting.
My jie jie, Amy, (@ahaahaa in SINA), was my guide. She told me how to get to the fansmeeting site in Kowloon. Because that was the first time for me to go there and I knew nothing. First, Anggi told me that I will arrive in HK on 30th at 8.50 am thus Amy jie said that I would arrive in Kowloon earlier thus I could take a rest. But there was another change again, Anggi said that I will be in HK around 12.50 pm and I had only 1 hour and 10 minutes to go to the fansmeeting. Amy jie stated that she could not pick me up in Kowloon Bus Stop Station because it took a long time, she suggested I better save my money and not going to the fanmeeting or choose Thailand Fanmeeting next February because I would be late and if I was late, I could not go inside T_____T. in fact I was in the middle of my trip. I absolutely could not cancel it.
I went from Mataram to Jakarta on 29th Jan in the afternoon and slept in the Soekarno Hatta airport because my flight to HK departed at 3 am on 30th Jan. I arrived in KualaLumpur International airport at 8.40 am and my flight to HK was at 9.15 am.. so exhausting!!!!!
But God had another plan for me, I arrived at 12.30 pm and I ran inside the airport like a crazy person. I went to the immigration immediately, and the customs officer (the immigration officers were not friendly >0< ) Only thing in my mind is that I HAVE TO BE THERE, IN THE FANSMEETING.. then I had to find the transportation. I asked customer service in the airport how can I got into HITEC fast because I had to attend an event, she said that I would be there in 45 minutes trip by taxi. Thanks God the taxi driver could speak English. I told him, ‘can we get there in 40 minutes?’, he replied me, “sure, no problem, I will make it 20 minutes”.. I was happy to hear that.
Then I arrived in Hongkong International Trade and Exhibition Center at 01.20 pm, 40 minutes earlier than I thought. God is with me, I know that.. the taxi driver said Happy Chinese New Year to me, hehehe.. I said Happy Chinese New Year too.
(At this point, I would like to assert here that this is a personal encounter of one determined and devoted Gengfan who had only one focus ..and that is to be there at the fans-meeting..to see her precious Han Geng at all costs…. It was her way of describing how she managed to reach the venue on such limited time..!!)
When I was in the HITEC, I was confused(lost) again. Candy told me that she put my ticket in box office on 3rd floor. Then the fansmeeting would be held on 6th floor. I don’t know where I was. When I wanted to go by elevator, someone called me, oh My.. it’s Amy jie. She was a bit surprised seeing me arriving early and she thought that I would not be there.. she hold my hands and we walked around together. God is always with me. Wasn’t it lucky? Hehehehe..
We took the ticket on 3rd floor and went directly to the 6th floor. There, I saw a Japanese actor held a fansmeeting too, Yamapi, the actor in Buzzer beatz drama. At the time I was in 6th floor, there were hundreds of Gengfans queuing. Almost all of them looked at and stared at me, maybe they know that I am from Indonesia and I was the only one who wearing veil (head-scarf). Hahahaha..
I met many gengfans, from Japan, Hongkong, China, Taiwan, etc. they were so friendly. Some gengfans even said, ‘are you the one who danced with Hangeng in Singapore Fansmeeting? Your dance is the best’.. I just smiled. I meet Candy, Vivian, Weijing, Sabrina Jie, Hay Jie, Annie, Ariel and so many gengfans. They knew me.. I had a lot of family here.. new family….
Gengfans even gave me so many gifts. Because they know that I am a teacher. The gifts are for my students.
The fansmeeting was 40minutes late.. arrrrgggghhh.. I remembered how crazy I was, running at the airport for only catching this event on time. But never mind. I was there. I asked my friend to give my present from Indonesia to Hangeng. I hope it’s delivered.
The fansmeeting started. Hangeng was out. HE IS SO DAMN HANDSOME AND HOT!!!!!!! The first song was ‘Queen’. Hehehehe, the song that I danced with him.. hehehehe. I never feel tired to say that HANGENG IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD LOOKING… he was the same as in Singapore and Thailand fanmeeting. And he is still the same. (She was also at the Thailand Fans-meeting after the one in Singapore, she flew to Thailand)
After he sang Queen, he played a game with his fans. Hangeng had to choose some tickets, and the luckiest fans would go on the stage. Because I don’t understand a single word of Cantonese or Chinese language, I just stared(fixed my gaze) at Hangeng when suddenly a friend from the back hit my back and shouted, ‘Hey, that’s your seat number. Go now!!’. I was totally shocked and stood immediately. Almost gengfans who saw me standing, said ‘ooooo’ (maybe they thought, ‘aaa, that girl again :0) . And Hangeng saw me.. he was kind of surprised seeing me. I TOTALLY remembered his face when he saw me. So cute.. he recognized me. Hahahahaha. He pointed at me and said, ‘nice to meet you’. I replied him, ‘nice to meet you too’. Hangeng remembered me, his Indonesia fans.
After that I went on the stage. When I was there, I remember again the time a few months ago in Singapore. I looked at Hangeng, and shook hands with him. Hangeng speaks English with me, ‘Hay, nice to meet you’. I just could not say anything. Just smiled. Maybe he knows how to act (as in interact)with foreigner, he hold hand tightly.
The game started. I was absolutely like a dumb person on the stage because I know nothing what they are talking about. Thanks God, a friend beside me wants to translate the words for me. It was X-O game.
I remembered the MC could not speak English and just said, “yes yes yes” to me.. hahahaha. Hangeng maybe noticed my ‘confused’ face thus he said to the MC, ‘she is from Indonesia, she cant understand’. (YES, HANGENG EVEN REMEMBERS I AM FROM INDONESIA!!). how can I say, I just follow my friend on the stage. The game finished, and fans on the stage had to leave but before that, sure, it’s a tradition, HUGGING.. hahahahaha. I was the last person and Hangeng once again saw me, I hugged him and said, ‘COME TO INDONESIA, please’, he whispered, ‘HAO, TERIMA KASIH’.. (Hangeng remembered that INDONESIAN WORD!!! I was surprised. Hangeng is the best..
When I was off the stage, many gengfans said that, YOU ARE SO DAMN LUCKY, HANGENG KNOWS YOU.’ I just bowed and smiled. I sat again on my seat and I hugged my friend who sat next to me. But actually it’s not my number seat being chosen. The one who was called has changed her seat. But I did not know that my friend behind me pushed me because she heard my seat number was picked by Hangeng.. but she did not make it as problem.
Then the show continued. All gengfans celebrated Hangeng’s birthday. Hongkong gengfans were SO GOOD!!! They love hangeng very much. I cried when I watched their fanmade VCR for Hangeng. So touching. Hangeng…. You are different. Your charisma makes all falling. Many people love you.. and you know that.
The show finished at 5 pm. Sabrina Jie asked me to go to airport to see Hangeng. I just followed her. Before that I went to Amy jie who helped me a lot. We took a picture together and kinda sad leaving them.. gengfans.. I love you.. even it’s our fist meeting, you guys are so nice to me…
Unfortunately, Sabrina Jie and I could not catch Hangeng in airport.. Hangeng was so fast. Hehehehe.. he entered the departures room so quick. Never mind.. we respect your privacy..
Then, we both spent time in airport, Sabrina Jie and I talked a lot about Hangeng.. about gengfans in HK and Indonesia.. I really thanked Sabrina Jie for her kindness when I was in HK. If we meet again, I will treat you more than you do to me.. you did a lot of things to me, even that was our first meeting. She was so nice… like a mother loving her daughter.
Hangeng, thank you, terima kasih. You never forget your fans. Wherever we are from, we are one because we are Hangeng Gengfans Family. Language is just a barrier among us. We can communicate with our eyes. Our body is not at the same place, but our mind is belonging to each other.
My scarification to meet you from Mataram to Hongkong is paid. You paid me. My friend even said, Hangeng and you are belonging to each other. Maybe he is impressed by you, knows that you are from Indonesia, going to Hongkong to only meet him..
I don’t get any gift from Hangeng.. only a hug and a word for Indonesian Gengfans, but I have a bigger present, it’s Gengfans family. They give so much, more than Hangeng gave to me. I never stopped saying this, “Hangeng, you are lucky. Because you have gengfans, they are priceless and they make you becoming like this now..” Gengfans love and hug for me, I never forget that. TERIMA KASIH *bow*
Thank You Rizka for sharing with us your personal experience and letting us “see” Han Geng through you..and “experiencing” it through you…Thank You and Banyak-banyak Terima Kasih…!!
