081111 HANOI MEET: SUCCESS!
for those of you wondering about these rumors passed around about jiyong being on ‘we got married,’ i’ve been looking around since last night, & i honestly haven’t seen anything confirming that.
so rest assured, kwon jiyong is NOT going to be on ‘we got married.’
finally the hanoi post is up.
thanks to our fellow vipz in vietnam, especially Ha Ji [Wind] from Bigbangvn.com for keeping me up to date w/ the meet & sharing the meet pix.
i have to say, since the 2 yrs that bb has been out, nothing of this sort of project that can reach the masses has been done in honor of BB, nor ANY other group. i’m quite proud that bbfansite started the trend & many others have followed. the results are mass networking amongst vipz around the world. one day i hope to let our boys know how many fans they have around the world. one project at a time, they will find that out. i’m looking forward to having the video messages get in their hands & they’ll have a taste of that.
here’s the results of the hanoi meet. from what WIND has shown me, they’ve had a few already for gdyb’s bdays. you’ll be amazed at how many attended.
details under the cut ————>
i’ll also post up the NYC MINI-GREET. more details on that later.
FROM HA JI:
My sister & I were in the place at 12.30 While having lunch in Thai Lai’s restaurant, I got a phone and heard such a shocking things – the projector I had ordered for the party couldn’t be sent to me, because of the heavy rain and the flood. I was kinda angry and worried, also tried to look for other companies which lend the projectors. Unfortunately, they all couldn’t come to my place, so at 2p.m we had to start the party, without the projector, with the heavy rain outside and only 9 people inside.
Oh I must say something about the projector. Maybe you guys dont usually use it when having a party, but we ALWAYS prepare a fan-made video which lasts nearly an hour to celebrate the member’s birthday (Taeyang’s, G-Dragon’s before and T.O.P’s) So being in lack of projector means like you’re working with only 1 hand!!!
At last, I decided to use a laptop and all people gathered around it to watch the video. The video was a collection of special moments of our TOP, and we sat person to person, which seemed to be very warm and friendly.
After that we celebrated Top’s bday with a big cake (a vani-chocolate one) and 22 candles. Even the “host of the party” couldn’t come ^^ we still feel happy and sang out loud a “Happy bday” song for him.
A game started later with 8 questions to know more about Top, the answers were given through videos and who could answer right got a Viet subbed VCD of Documentary 7.
If you want to know, here are the Qs.
1. What is the real name of Top? Who gave his nick name – T.O.P?
2. In Mnet Star Watch Sept. 14, 2007, Top was asked, if he were a girl, which member in BB he would date with. So what is Top’s answer?
3. During Global Warning Tour, Big Bang acted in Hana Yori Dango parody. What is Top’s character?
4. Top’s favorite foods?
5. In Happy Share Company show, in the part of “1000won happiness” who did Top make a present for?
6. In “Change” show, which character did Top wear a costume like?
7. Nicknames that netizen fan call Top?
8. What is Top’s first drama? Tell something about his character.
And after Q8, we showed a video collecting impressive scenes of Top in “I am Sam”. After that Lita had to left the party soon due to her business.
Everybody attended the party received a picture as a gift from the staff, which has… signature of T.O.P (thanks to Photoshop ^^) and A RANDOM NUMBER.
We prepared picks based on the numbers people already had, and I chose only one to decide who is the lucky person that gets the T.O.P’s 2009 calendar – designed and made by [Wind]. TOP party was hold in Nov. 2 to celebrate T.O.P’s birthday – Nov. 4 and the LUCKY NUMBER is 11, too!!! How surprising it was ^^
At the end of the party, I prepared some videos that have English/Rom. subbed for people to sing along. They are Lies (Korean ver.), Haru haru, Make love and Lalala (Eng ver.)
Despite a heavy rain, in the end there were more than 20 people coming to TOP party, half of them got all wet when appearing. I couldn’t express my feeling at that time, as a person who held this party, I had thought that no more than 10 people could come, but they made me surprised. There were only gift-photos, Cokes, birthday cake, funny videos and a game, I wish that I could give them more fun, more things as a thanks to them. Wish that I could hug everybody once.
Love of Big Bang makes people all around the world nearer, isn’t it? We have no relationship in fact, some just met each other at the first time at TOP party, but we still have a warm party and so many smiles and laughs.
Just wanna say thanks to all, and especially Lita, who came as a stranger to everybody (she just only SMS-ed me some times), but nobody considered you stranger.
Here are the pics from the party.
The banners used:
UNLUCKILY, I forgot to take the most important pic – the pic of all the member here (how stupid I am T^T) So I give the pics of another meeting in Hanoi in Oct.5 – we came and took pictures for TOP’s birthday project

SPECIAL GOODIES IN TOP PARTY

T.O.P’s 2009 Calendar – I made it for all Big Bang fan and to celebrate 2009 with T.O.P with full strength and happiness!
That’s all things in TOP party, I just give you in details. So with a few pics I sent, do anything you want to tell pp more about this party, as they are waiting for the pics. Thanks a lot for your lovely help.
i must say that was one of the most organized posts i’ve ever gotten from another vip. thanks so much to HA JI. & definitely what she said about ‘strangers’ meeting up – BB definitely spreads the LOVE around. once you meet up, you come closer b/c of things you have in common – & that’s 5 LOVELY KOREAN BOYS WITH SPUNK! gosh i’m still in awe.
i can’t wait til i start another LA MEET – hopefully MORE OF YOU will JOIN! <33
