taylorswifthongkong: REP ROOM SYDNEY  People say I’m crazy for…



People say I’m crazy for flying 12+ hours to Sydney in the middle of the semester. And staying there only for a weekend. Especially when I’ve already flown 13 hours and seen both shows in London. However, it’s not about where I go, but whom I’m with. I just wanted to see my best friends in the fandom. We haven’t seen each other for three years since 1989 Tour Singapore. It turned out to be the best decision I’ve ever made.

We were handpicked by Taylor’s mom Andrea out of a 80,000 crowd to meet Taylor backstage in rep room after the show. She literally stayed till 1:45am to meet fans after a freaking rain show! 

The highlight of our convo was when Taylor aka our ULTIMATE English teacher thought we were from Australia because to her, we spoke like native English speakers. (THAT’S WHEN YOU KNOW YOU FREAKING MADE IT PEOPLE.) To me, that’s the greatest compliment I’ve ever received in my entire life. I’ll never forget the look on her face when we told her we flew all the way from Asia just to see the Rep tour together. Then she couldn’t stop praising our English. And I got to tell her about how I became a fan of her which I doubt I’ve ever told anyone.

We were the last group to meet Taylor. We said our goodbyes and she was about to leave. I came up to her and said “OMG TAYLOR while we’re on the topic and I want to tell you something about English.” She immediately stopped what she was doing, turned her attention to me and looked into my eyes, waiting for me to talk. “I discovered your music because of Love Story and You Belong With Me.” She had this very cute and sweet smile on her face when she heard that. “I remember I was watching videos of 13 hours Meet & Greet in 2010 (which she met fans for free for 13hrs) and I said to myself, she’s so nice!!! I want to meet her one day and talk to her. But wait, my English is terrible. I won’t be able to say anything to her!” SHE NEVER BROKE EYE CONTACT WITH ME and I was so shy I looked away for a bit. “Funny thing is I didn’t do anything academically to improve my English.” When I looked up I could still see the smile on her face. “Instead, I learned all your song lyrics, looked up all the words in dictionary and tried to memorise them. I also read and watched all the interviews.” Then she did that adorable signature Taylor move when she had one foot stepped back a little bit, her body leaned back and went awwww. “I found out that I really love this language. And I’m now an English Major in university.” She was so touched and shocked that she immediately reached out to me for a hug. And I said “It’s all because of you Taylor.” in her arms. 

I’ve waited 8 years to say thank you to her in person. I cannot thank Mama Swift enough for this once in a life time opportunity. I’ll never forget this short trip to Sydney. BTW I knew Taylor was probably in a rush and had to go because it was almost 2am. I literally felt bad for keeping her to listen to me bullshitting. But if I didn’t do it i will regret it for the rest of my life. GOD BLESS TAYLOR I AM SO SORRY AND I LOVE YOU. @taylorswift @taylornation
