Advertorial + Media Invite
I’ve never attended a celebrity’s fan club’s celebration for any idol before. So when I was invited to DJ Violet Fenying‘s birthday celebration together with the rest of my mommy blogger buddies – The M.I.C.E. Mom Bloggers Irene, Cherie, and Estella – I honestly have no idea what to expect.
As it turns out, the event was super fun! I had so much fun I couldn’t bear to leave when I had too! Long story short, the husband and I had a clash of events that day, but thankfully, his event was in the late afternoon while this birthday celebration started in the morning!
The birthday party was held at Sakura International Buffet Restaurant, and can I just say, I’m still craving for the food served there since the party?
Just look at all the yummy sushi available!
They had all my favourite foods in one place – Inari Sushi (absolute love!), Tamago Sushi, Ebi Sushi, Kani Sushi, Fried Ebi, Dim Sum, Pizza, Yam Paste (another love!) and… Ben & Jerry’s!!! As you can see, sushi was my top priority that day. And Ben & Jerry’s! Hehe 😛
Estella and Irene were the hosts that day
The very short time I held onto the microphone to introduce myself
After we introduced ourselves, I started working. The first job I had was to help with registration, then I moved on to getting the fans to gather and take group photos!
All of DJ Violet Fenying’s fans are so warm and friendly! I was actually a little scared of approaching them, because I was afraid of being rejected. I was wrong. They were in such good spirits, and were more than happy to pose for the camera! Some of them even came up to me to ask for the photo prop! Hehe.
In the midst of it all, I was grabbed to take a photo, and this has got to be the only proper photo I have from that day cos I was really just all over the place, assisting in whatever way I can. I didn’t even take a single photo with my camera! Gasp!
Together with Sakura’s head chef, Agnes from ATMC, Irene, Cherie, and Estella
I do remember posing for a couple of photos, taken by the fans. I wonder if any of you would be so kind to send it my way? I’d really love to keep a copy of the photos too!
All of the guests were also really spontaneous, participating in the games planned for them. Their enthusiasm in being fully supportive towards all of their idol’s events made me feel the love they have for DJ Violet Fenying! And how I wish I can have something similar! It never hurts to feel more love, right? 😛
And I did! Not as many as Dj Violet Fenying, but I did meet one of my readers, Jess, there! She even won one of the lucky draw prizes! Hehe. Thanks for saying ‘Hi’ Jess, you really made my day 😀
And to much delight of her fans, DJ Violet Fenying arrived!
And it was my privilege to welcome and usher her in! 😀
When I introduced myself to DJ Violet Fenying, she immediately recognized my name! We’ve never met before, but she could remember that I sponsored an item in the goodie bag, under Party Favors Singapore. Amazing or what?
Ushering DJ Violet Fenying through the restaurant to get to the center stage was really tough, because she stopped to chat and take photos with all of her fans. Haha. But here’s the best part, she totally remembers all of them! I’m seriously impressed!
Nearing the end of the party (for me at least since I left about 2+ hours before it finally wrapped up), I was a designated flower vase. I felt kind of sad that I didn’t get to stay all the way, but I had fun during the time I was there! And I got to sing the birthday song before leaving too! Hehe.
Tomorrow is DJ Violet Fenying’s actual birthday, on Good Friday too, how awesome! And I’d like to say a few words to her…
Dear DJ Violet Fenying,
If you’re reading this, I wish to tell you that you’ve inspired me to work hard at connecting with my readers, to get to know them better. It’s so wonderful to see how down-to-earth you really are, knowing all your fans so well, and even having a group chat set up so that they can connect directly to you! I am truly amazed by it all.
Here’s wishing you a super happy birthday, and may you and your lovely family stay beautiful and healthy always 🙂
