Super Idol Follow-up

I didn’t make it to the next round, but that’s okay! I feel pretty content, though just a bit tired as the event took quite a long time. Someone I met made it through, so I am glad for her! She did really well. In fact, she was at the top of the rankings of scores of the top 25. Some people who made it were not there in person, though, so I thought that was weird.

It really is too bad that in these kinds of contests, they don’t give you any real feedback so you really don’t know what to do better next time, but that’s okay. I think I should properly send out auditions instead. These kinds of contests aren’t quite my thing.

In the long run, it was a lot of fun.

Hey, so, does the Japanese community have these kinds of things as well over in California, I wonder? That would be neat, though I never hear about it.

I also got free stuff (dumpling soy sauce, a jar of something, a bottle of tea, and a free shirt..), and also grabbed a free shirt that was being thrown. New pajamas, I guess? Haha. I have 2-3 other bottles of tea from this event, seriously… omnomnom.

Also, I wish everyone in the top 26 luck in making it to Taiwan!!!

HTTV USA’s Super Idol Competition (semifinals)

So, uh, on Sunday I did the audition for this competition, which gives the winner a recording contract in Taiwan.

So.. uhm.. I made it into HTTV USA’s SuperIdol Competition’s semifinals round! I totally thought I didn’t make it in because only one judge said anything. I did a Japanese song but I wonder if I should sing in English or Chinese this coming round. No clue.. but I need to be on my toes for sure this time.

It’s another a capella round but for at least 3 minutes a person, haha.. Gosh, I’m excited.

Apparently the finalist that get voted most popular online gets an iPhone so I will post about that, too, if I make it. Finals are the day right after Semifinals.. Geeeh.

If there are those of you in the Southern California area that I know, the Semifinals allows people to bring signs and boards to support the competitors. Feel free to come and watch! But yes, the Semifinals are at a the Chinese Cultural Center in El Monte, California. (??????: 9443 Telstar Ave. El Monte CA 91731)

The competition starts at 10:00am, though I have to be there earlier for check-in.

Please let me know if you can make it and I’ll figure it out ( I hope)! I don’t want to be there alone like I had been during auditions, haha. I’m contestant #232, though there are only 100 competitors for this round.

For those of you who can’t make it, I believe HTTV USA will broadcast it at some point on channel 62.2. I don’t know when it will be aired, though…

Hope I can do it!


Cherry Blossom Festival

Just a brief post about it just in case some people I vanished off the face of the Earth for whatever reason. :U

Cherry Blossom Festival was a blast, though it blasted me with a light raccoon tan as well… but yes! I hope everyone enjoyed the event. I didn’t actually get to look around at everything, but that was fine. I got a few things to nibble on and wandered around with some friends who came by. I was very happy to see the ones that came to watch the performance.

I was so exhausted… so I didn’t go to the second day to watch the Animaid Cafe’s Lolita Fashion Show since I didn’t need to be there for any performances. Turns out I missed some old friends as a result!! Darn.

But my feet were really killing me… I had gone to Disneyland to take 2 middle school students out on an adveeenture. Nah, I was just helping someone out. Either way, it was rather crowded that day. It was more lines and waiting times than it was visually crowded, though, so that was kind of weird. We saw Captain Eo and that was kind of embarrassing, yet super awesome. I would go see it again, haha… but I had one hour of sleep before I went to Disneyland because of several unexpected events, so you can see why I was dead by the previous week’s Sunday. Oh man. Remind me never to do that ever again.

I’ll probably go to California Adventure sometime before mid-May, though.
