POREOTICS!!! The first time I met them I was at Great America theme park during the Kababayan Fest event. It was a few weeks after their win so I got completely starstruck. And they were just normally selling clothes at a booth, almost forgot Law’s name haha. Weirdly enough everyone was there except for Can, they said just Twitter him because he’s sick. But by the end of the day that all performed there along with Can. It was simply amazing. Second time I met them was at World of Dance in Vallejo last November. There was a celebrity meet and greet so I brought my friend and lined up for autographs (since I failed to get autographs the last time). So I was in line and met both Future Funk from Americas Got Talent and Poreotics, again. I let them sign my Beats By Dre headphones box and Jet Li was like “whoa Beats By Dre, lucky dude”. Same response from Charles. Btw, Charles is freaking cracking up hella jokes that time. End of story.

My first year at college Far East Movement came to perform at API:SMASH (now API:MoH) at San Francisco State University. There were so many fans surrounding them that my friend couldn’t get all of the guys into the picture. *sad face*
My 2nd year at college and I’m one of the coordinators (the middle one giving the confuzzled face) Traphik came and did an EPIC performance and dropped his pants on stage for PANTS ON THE GROUND!
And JRA blew our minds with his lovely voice.
We also had Just Kidding Films, Lydia Paek and a ton of talented dance groups! It was EPIC!

I was lucky enough to spend and hour or so hanging out with Far East Movement boys and play some Xbox Kinect with them when they were here in Toronto in October.
My friend randomly entered their VIP fan meet on twitter and got in. He put me on the guest list too. At the fan meet we met the boys and got to talk and play some xbox with them. I played against DJ Virman in ping pong and he totally kicked my butt. The rest of the time we were watching the guys play against each other and the other fans. We then got to see them do an interview and we took a huge group picture together along with individual pictures.
It was such a cool day. They were really down to Earth & so easy to talk to. Great & hilarious guys.
#13 on my list of things to do before I die: Meet Far East Movement *crossed off* :)

So for those who don’t know, AJ Rafael is this Amazinggg singer/songwriter from Cali who became “famous” off of Youtube with 248,018 subscribers and tons of fans. I couldn’t miss his show in Houston this year.
Eric Sean Ilanga is also a singer/songwriter who posts vids on Youtube. and he is from Houston, Texas.
I became friends with Eric Ilanga on facebook a few months ago. He was one of the performers at the concert. Eric is also a Great friend of AJ. I talked to Eric on facebook a couple months before the concert and he sold me my tickets(:
And here is my story about my AMAZING experience.
(sorry its kinda long, but its worth it i promise:))
So we get to the Stafford Civic Center at about 4:30pm. The band is practicing! hahaha.
We leave and go eat blah blah. We get back to the Center, it starts at like 6:40. I don’t wanna give soo many details of the concert, but it was just Freakin Awesome! There were 4 other Filipino performers and a Dance Crew. It was sooo amazing. Everyone did awesome! I got videos to post later but lets get to the real story… :D
So the concert ends at about 9 and they say there will be a meet and greet after. So everyone’s like waiting around and then we see a line going up the stairs to the balcony. and im like “is that the line up there?” and one of the manager guys was like Yea the line goes up the stairs. So me, my mom and Jade head up the stairs and there’s already so many people. We’re standing up there by the balcony thinking oh man we’re gonna be here for hours! So I’m looking down at the people below and I see Eric Ilanga. Hes just talkin and takin pics. Then he’s looking up at some of the people in the balcony. I wave down at him, and he smiles and waves back! So im pretty sure he recognized me(: Then my mom holds up 3 fingers and tries to tell him, “We drove 3 hours!” and Eric’s all like oh yeah! and im like yeah I’m Katy from Austin. Then he tries to ask us “how many people do you have?” Jade went out to the car before this, so we hold up 2 fingers and tell him two. Then he’s like ok hold on! So to mom I’m like “oh hell yeah i got connections see!” :DD lmao. so we wait a few minutes. And Eric comes back out. He looks up at us and motions for us to come down. we’re like ok:D so we go through everybody in line to go down the stairs and there’s Eric! (getting pics taken still xD) then he sees us and gives us a hug. it was so good to meet him in person. and he’s like “don’t worry i got you guys:)” im like omg yay!!!!
So he takes us into the room where the meet and greet is going on. And AJ is right there! and the band and everyone who performed! Mom heard someone tell us “the line is back there” But Eric said “Its ok they’re my friends” how awesome!(: I didn’t hear it but i guess i was too distracted xD
I made bracelets for Eric and AJ, and while we were waiting i gave Eric his. He seemed to really like it :DD
So there’s a line by the door, and the Filipino guy who seemed to be managing things, tells us to go in front of these girls. We got to cut in line right at the very front!! and there’s a table with the bands, then AJ is at the end of the line. before we get to the table, The really really nice manager dude talks to us cuz Eric introduced us and said how we came 3 hours away from Austin, Texas. He’s like oh Austin, Then he says “Yeah we’re gonna bring AJ to Austin, in the Kyle area next year!” and we’re like omg really thats great! So he asks me to write down my phone number and e-mail to contact me when AJ comes down!(: Then Eric brought his sister over to us and I got to meet her. She is soo beautiful and soo nice. (:
so Eric said “I’ll meet you guys down by AJ so i can introduce yall and tell him your his #1 fan!” hahah im like I am!! :DD
Then we’re getting close to the tables! We bought a poster before the concert so i had them sign it. tried to get a pic but the camera kept messing up x( aha anyway i just went down the line trying to take pics and having them sign my poster.
Then we get to AJ ! Eric introduced us by saying something like “they drove 3 hours to come here” And AJ being his awesome self is all like “Shut up right now” yea im the number one fan!!! hahaha. Then AJ’s like “Can we get a shirt for mom?!” cuz they were selling shirts. so Eric went and grabbed one. Mom got a shirt for freee:D Thanks to AJ(:
Eric told AJ “Dude she has your name in her twitter name” I was like oh yeah hahaha. cuz my account is AJRAGRHQC_love. xDDD Hes like “Oh really?!?”
Then someone takes a pic of mom, AJ, and I. theres like a million pics that were dark cuz the flash wasn’t on. but thankfully the guy takin the pics was like “its dark, do you have a flash” so i turned on the flash and then YAY! we got a good pic of all of us together, but mom was standing next to AJ :O not cool. so i was like “can i get one with just AJ.” so i did yay(:
Oh then mom was like “Hey which one of you is Andrew Garcia’s friend, he signed Katy’s shoe” Im so glad she reminded me cuz I woulda forgot. and oh yeah AJ is also great friends with Andrew Garcia from American Idol who i met this past August in Dallas! and i was like “Oh yeah, AJ can you sign it by Andrew?!” So he picks up my foot and signs my shoe. :DD then i give him my hoodie to sign(: I give him a hug and he says Bye and Merry Christmas!
So we say bye to Eric and he tells us to have a safe trip and whatever. and we’re walking out right, but i forgot my poster! aha so i go find Eric and tell him i left it in there. We go in again and there it is sitting on the table hahah. Eric gave it to me, i had him sign it. and we say bye to AJ and everyone again. we walk out and see jade. shes like “Did you give them the bracelets??” im like OH shitttttt i forgot to give AJ his! bahaha. so my crazy self finds Eric again and i tell him i forgot to give AJ his bracelet! so he directs us back in AGAIN ! (sorry Eric xD) I put the bracelet on AJ. it was kinda short for him:( but while i put it on someone behind AJ joked and said, “Its a tracking device!” AJ was like “hahahha tracking device” I was like “nahh im not that bad” bahahhaha xD. so AJ thanked me and he was like “whats your twitter name again?” i told him and hes like “Oh yeah i see your tweets alot!” hahaha(:
So then we FINALLY say bye for the last time, and as were walking out AJ’s says “see you guys later!” im like byeeeeeeeeeeeeee(: Then we leave for real this time!!! lol.
Ohhh man what a night! Soo much fun and it was so much more than I expected! I couldn’t believe it. Im so thankful that it turned out great the way it did! If it wasn’t for me knowing Eric then we woulda been waiting there for HOURSSS.!
Nothing like this has ever happened to me and i just feel so blessed(:
I hope yall enjoyed my story and hope it wasnt too long! (:
