I saw the man I've been admiring today, Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor!!! Omaigot. At first I totally forgot it was today till someone mentioned to me. I felt lucky that by the time he's going to make his speech I was able to attend since I have an hour gap before my next lecture. So I dragged Liang Yi along. She had no other choice :P
I was practically walking at a very fast rate, my cheeks all flushed from the heat, sweat pouring, my baju and tudong senget because I was far too excited. Euphoria. Liang Yi had had to wear the cool mask. She told me to calm down and walk slower. Pity her, I did not listen so she had to keep up with my Sonic the Hedgehog pace. Ngahaha...
Omaigot omaigot omaigot!!!
As we reached Chancellor Hall and finally slowed down a bit, we wanted to go in but malu. My eyes went wild, looking around for my IDOL. Then I saw my friend Puteri, so we chatted a little while. I asked her "Sheikh Muszaphar ney??? Ada dalam ka???". She said yes then something else but I wasn't listening because GOOD GRACIOUS SHEIKH MUSZAPHAR WAS HEADING TOWARDS OUR DIRECTION!!!
My whole body froze as I my jaw dropped at the sight of this very handsome astronaut...Tall and handsome as he is, he was walking to the toilet. When he was gone, I was like "Liang Yi!!! omaigot!!!" as I did all the normal things a crazy fan would do - jumped, grinned like a clown and shaking my hands. Liang Yi smiled, she still looked.....calm. I can never understand you girl.
I erm, WE waited for him after that. I especially ordered my victim to be ready to snap my picture with him. And she did:
well I did take a picture with him...i was in, so was he, so it's still counted as a picture together right???
He looked old from a closer view. But still handsome. Hmm forgivable. I did not get to take the 'real' picture with him because the organizing committee did not approve of doing so... T.T
After that, the both of us went to our seats which was very very far at the top back. There were a lot of primary and kindy students too. Sheikh Muszaphar began his speech talking about his whole experience on the astronaut stuff. Do you know that you cannot be an astronaut if you have fillings in any of your teeth? Or that you must be not too tall? Your back bone's length must not be more than 99cm. His was 96cm. Close enough...
Because we had a class in the next few minutes, we cabut larh. I managed to give him a flying kiss. Bye Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor...bersyukor saye dapat tengok anda. Oh!
A very satisfied fan
Thank you IRCC committees and Anis Izzuddin. Although Sheikh Muszpahar is WAY more handsome than you, he would never replace you in my heart. Oh!
Me heart you!
You guys have truly done a wonderful job bringing him here. Seeing him actually makes me feel like I've granted one of my childish wishes. I actually had an album of it back home. Ngahaha.
