#REACHOUT 2014 at Taylor's with Kina Grannis, Jason Chen and David Choi!!!

Today's the day I've been looking forward to for so long. It's REACH OUT 2014!!! I finally get to see Kina Grannis, David Choi and Jason Chen LIVE!!!! I have to admit I am a bit slow in following up youtubers. I got hooked onto David Choi's music after Jinny put it up on his videos. Hearing so much about Kina from friends, I searched her up and recently too shared a video of hers which I really loved on Facebook that she commented on. And as for Jason Chen? The first time I heard about him was when he did the cover of Tong Hua in English. That was super unique! Now that I get a chance to see them perform live, WHY MISS IT?

I zoomed all the way to Taylor's Lakeside after work at 7pm, hoping that I didn't miss any of them and thankfully, I was still early. I bumped into Jeremy and Brendan, the music producers that I only always meet at events. Spotted Munnie and her friends during break time. We had a drink before heading back for a long session of standing.

After entering the hall, I realized that I left my camera's memory card in my laptop. HOW SMART! Walking out of the hall, I bumped into the awesome blogger TianChad and told him I had to run out to get a memory card. I remember seeing a computer store just nearby. However, I was too late as it was already closed. Should have checked my camera earlier so I would notice and get one. 
Feeling bummed, I dragged myself back to the hall. On the way back, I spotted Dan, Jeremy and Guan in Starbucks. I had to say HI. After telling them how stupid I was of leaving my memory card at home, Jeremy offered to borrow a memory card. He's such a life saver. This is the advantage of having a photographer friend. Thanks Jeremy!!! Btw, visit his photography page HERE.

Here's a picture of Guan. Although I've seen him so many times, I never realized how tall he actually was. That's because at previous occasions, I was always in heels. I was in my sneakers today...

Here's Joseph Germani, the Youtuber who has the same passion as me. SHOES! Yes, note that I used the word Passion for no reason. LOL! He was wearing one of the Jeremy Scott Shoes today. One day I shall wear mine and have a picture with him in the same shoes. One day...

 Jun Sung Ahn was up. I wasn't sure who he was before but I did some research on Youtube before attending the event. He's a talented Violinist. Brings back memories of when I learnt the violin. I wonder if I would be as talented if I continued with violin classes before...

Here's some videos of him.
 Next up? JASON CHEN!!!! YAYY!!! I wanted to buy his tee but however, I had no luck in finding it outside like he said. Maybe it was sold out. Darn... It was a replay button with a treble clef. I was planning to buy and wear it to work tomorrow like a uniform since I teach music...

 Madilyn Bailey was up next. I have never heard her sing before and I could say I was blown away by the first song she sang. It was Thrift Shop but in a totally different version! I loved it!!!

But wait, that is not all! David Choi had a duet with Kina Grannis!!! Unfortunately, I only had 2 videos of it because my phone a battery died on me... :(

The event ended with the song "Happy" by all the youtubers!
I am so sorry for not providing a lot of good videos and pictures like I usually do. Clearer videos and pictures were taken via my Casio digital camera and blur ones were zoomed up by my Samsung Note 2. Videos of my phone were taken via Instagram because my phone's battery was too low to run on camera mode. I have truly learnt my lesson to charge both my phone and camera batteries at ALL TIMES. Also, bring a memory card or at least keep a spare memory card in my wallet at all times... Despite my battery going on and off during the event, I still got to take quite awesome photos. Here's my favourite. What's yours?

From today's event, I saw a lot of over the top fan girls.They were screaming "AHHH!!! MARRY ME!!!" and "HE SMILED AT ME!!!" and stuff like that. As their voices increase, crescendo'ing to shouts, I laid low and just walk pass. I wonder if they would even pass out. Scary!!! I guess it is just normal for the photographers and media to see such events. This reminds me of the time I was at MTV Asia event and the girls were screaming like mad when Justin Bieber went on stage. 
Do stay tuned for more events and happenings on my blog. I am interested to attend any if you have extra tickets. HINT HINT! LOL!
