[FAN ACCOUNT] 130622 Fanmeeting with U-kiss

Hello~ Well, today I’m sharing with you guys my experience during this year fan meeting with U-kiss. Let’s start from the top. 

The event was supposed to start at 1pm. My sister and I arrived at 1.20pm because of some inconvenient we had early that morning. So we were scared to death of missing part of the show and event our sits (Each ticket had its own sit). But, when we got to the place the event was going to be held, we saw LOTs of KissMes lining to enter and to get their tickets (lots of them bought the tickets online but couldn’t be able to go pick them days before because of lack of time). So, in the end we could enter with no problem and thank God, we still had our sits. I was in third middle row and my sister was first left row. My sit was perfect, I could clearly see everything and the girls in front of me weren’t tall at all (lucky me). And in the stage there were some huge U-kiss figures, like person-size. When I entered I thought they were U-kiss which freaked me out, but they were just pictures lol. Well, for this event I brought my Jaeseop’s uchiwa and my Hoon sign, all made by myself. I also brought my light stick and my Stop Girl CD. I was armed and ready to enjoy the show lol.

The show finally started at 1.30pm approximately, when the members appeared on stage. I was shocked. I mean, I saw them the day before during the concert but seeing them again and so close… was like a dream. I must emphasize, the only one that looks to me tall is AJ, the rest is more like normal to me.

Well, after the girls’ screams ceased, they introduced their selves. It was like after each greeting girls would just screamed like crazy lol. I didn’t scream by the way. I only waved them with my uchiwa and light stick. The greeting that cracked me up was AJ’s because he only said: “Hola…” and KissMe’s were already screaming like crazy. This by the way made him laugh. Then he just completed: “Yo soy AJ”(I’m AJ in Spanish) The only ones that introduced their selves in English were Kiseop and Eli. The rest spoke in Spanish. And Kevin was the only one who said “Buenos Días” (Good morning in Spanish) which made him look like an angel (also the clothing he had was so conservative compared to the rest, he really looked like a good kid lol).

Later, the host asked them some questions.

1) What are your thoughts after coming to Peru for the second time?

Soohyun: Peruvian KissMe are still very pretty (LOL). And we missed you guys so much and we are happy we came back to Peru.

2) What are your thoughts of the second concert in Peru?

Eli: First, the concert was so fun. I was glad to see how KissMe’s enjoyed the concert. And I had a great time MCing with Kevin yesterday and I want to know if we did a good job.


Kevin: It was so hard for us to learn Spanish but the willing of wanted to communicate with you guys made our task easier to complete.

KM: Aww (Kevin gained lots of fans that day lol)

Well, after these questions, each member chose one girl to come up to the stage to play with them. AJ picked a girl from my right and Hoon picked a girl from my left. I mean, come on! I guess it’s because I only had small signs (the girls chosen had big signs with them). But I made mine tiny because I didn’t want to disturbe someone’s view. I think that very disrespectful. Anyway, I was like seeing the girls who were chosen and I saw my sister on stage and I was like OMG OMG! And she was waving to me like I can’t believe I’m here, Andrea! I almost teared up because of joy. I mean, it didn’t bother me to not get picked but seeing my sister on stage just made my whole day. At least some of us was lucky that day and I loved it! Ok, you can read her fan account by clicking here.

U-kiss and the fans played an eye-contact game which consisted in not looking to other site besides your partner face (I wouldn’t have been able to make it. I would have gotten to embarrassed I guess). So the game began and the crowd was screaming of jealous and I was so happy in my sit seeing how my sister was so close to SooHyun (I didn’t even pay attention to the rest lol). Damn, at that time I wanted to have my camera with me so badly so I could record every second of that game. But, sadly my sister took it and left it on her sit (which was far away from mine and I couldn’t stand up at the moment I realized that I needed my camera). Well, the first one who lost was Kevin like after a couple of seconds lol (He was so shy, too bad for his fan because she wanted to play more). Then Hoon, Dongho, Eli lost. Hoon made Kiseop’s team to lose and made also my sister’s team to lose but since nobody noticed it they kept playing. Sadly, AJ’s team didn’t have the same luck. So my sister won, yay! At this moment I thought she would receive a group hug or an autographed CD since last year’s winners received that. But, she just hugged SH for the last time and returned her sit.

Then it was the second game, U-kiss chose 7 girls one more time. I wasn’t chosen this time either. But this time, Hoon noticed my little sign of him and made and approval sign with his thumb. After that he would see me from time to time to send me little hearts with his hands and to smile to me (AW).

Well, the second game started. This was a game chair and they used U-kiss’ songs to play. So the game started and omg, the fanchants were SO loud. I felt so proud. The first song was 0330 and AJ made an “I’m hearing your chants” sign with his hand and ear. Kevin, Kiseop and Hoon were the first ones to lose. So they started to dance along with the song. They played Tick Tack and we got to scream “Yeo Hoon Min” (fanchant) before they cut the song and Hoon noticed it and he was like: Me? Thanks (thumbs up to the crowd). I won’t ever forget that, it was so funny.

After the game was over, they went to rest. In the meanwhile, there was a raffle to get U-kiss’ autograph. Three friends of mine won. I was so happy for them! After it, the guys came back. This time, we had to choose the members who:

- Who is the most popular member? - Kiseop

- Who cooks the best? - Eli

- Who is the one that showers the less? - Soohyun

And each winner had to make a sexy dance after they were chosen. The funniest moment came when we had to choose the member who showers the less. All the members stood up and when they were sitting again, SH took Kevin’s chair away and he fell. We all burst in laugh. Then, Dongho did the same thing to Hoon, but to his luck almost no one noticed it. But, since Karma is a bitch. SH was picked as the member who showers the less lol. And, when he had to dance, he did quite an unique dance. Check it out in the video below, especially at min 0:07.

Later, they performed A Shared Dream (no dance, tho) and KissMe Forever (which I WAS PRAYING TO LISTEN). A Shared Dream was flawless. I really love this song so I enjoyed it the fullest. And with Pyeonsaeng, I became wild, seriously. I started dancing (with my lightstick and uchiwa) and singing like possessed. I mean, come on. That song is to party haha. So, when I was all concentrated with my movements, AJ stood up in front of me, stared at me and started clapping (min 1:23). And I was like, why is he looking at me RIGHT, NOW? When I’m all derp. But after he left, I kept dancing, trying to look cool this time, tho. So then he came back, this time Hoon joined him. AJ made some movements (min 2:32) he wanted me to follow and I did (like and obedient KM). And he laughed. Then, he just walked away again. Then the girls around me were like, he was just staring at you, didn’t he? And I: yeah ;_; Sadly, I didn’t have the camera at that moment, either. So the only prove I have it is in my mind… and in this video.

Then the guys talked about their plans to come back to Peru in the future more frequently and that they wanted us to keep supporting them. After that, they had the fan-signing with 50 lucky KissMe’s. It was very quick. Later, they just thanked us for coming and said goodbye. It was all over now.

I had a mixed of emotions by that time. I was happy because they always make me smile during this events and I had so much fun with them those 2 days. But I also was kind of sad since I wouldn’t see them again until God knows how much time. And also, because someone stole my light stick during the fan-signing :/ I went to my sister’s sit to take the camera to film something before they left, so I think that’s when it might got stolen. I’m so disappointed in the person who took it. At least it was broken and it didn’t really shine that much.

So yeah, this was my experience. Hope you liked it and didn’t get bored with too much explanation. Have a nice day!

Review: The Face Shop Volcanic Clay Nose Strip

Hello, guys! Well, today I'm back with another review of a nose strip. Lately I've been getting lots of white and blackheads so I wanted to give it a try to a nose strip I've bought long time ago and hadn't have the chance to use yet. It’s THE FACE SHOP Volcanic Clay Black Head Aloe Nose Strip. Quite a long name, isn’t it?

First, let’s see the specifications of the product:

“New Zealand Volcanica Clay cultivate a smooth, pposong, three-dimensional screen that can be imposing in the flawless doll skin project. It has strong blackhead and oily secretion absorption properties. Supported with pore minimizing ingredients, the Aloe Pore Strip will leave your skin feeling tight and smooth.”

How to use:

- Remove Strip from pouch. Twist strip to loosen and separate slits prior to use.
- After washing your face, thoroughly wet your nose. The strip won’t stick on a dry nose.
- Dry hands, peel strip off plastic liner. 
- Apply to nose area, smooth side down, pressing down to ensure good contact with skin.
- Let dry for about 10-15 minutes until stiff to the touch.
- Slowly and carefully peel off starting at edges, pulling toward center.


I must say the nose strip has a nice scent/perfume that you can feel when you put it on. Also, I let it for about 20 minutes to get a better result. And I really wouldn’t mind to let it for more minutes since I didn’t feel any burn during that time (burn that I felt when using the nose pack). Also, when I had to remove it, it wasn’t painful at all. So yay to that.

Although, on the down side, I irritated one of my pores (it made it bleed) but somehow it didn’t hurt any of my nose pimples (which I was the most afraid of happening, actually).

When it comes to results, the Volcanic Clay did remove part of my blackheads, but not completely. And it didn’t do much about my whiteheads. So I’m kind of disappointed (I wanted to get Seohyun’s perfect skin, you know? LOL)

So I give this product:

I think if you have a low amount of blackheads, you should definitely try this. But if you have a considerate amount of them plus whiteheads, you should try something else. Although the no-painful experience was great.

Repurchase?: No. There are so many other products out there that I want to try and that might work better for me.

So, hopefully this review helped you to get a better idea of this product. And keep in mind that everybody’s reaction to a product is different.

Have a nice day!

My first purchase from ebay

Hello~ I'm back after two months? I've been pretty bussy with school as always.And also with K-pop concerts lol I’m gonna upload my fan accounts of Super Show and U-kiss concert in these days. I always upload them very late OTL I guess I’m always in classes during K-pop concerts so I don’t have time to write them. And also I feel kind of depressed/melancholic after them. Can’t help it.

Well, this post is related to my first purchase from ebay (like the title says lol). I received my package like two weeks ago so it’s time to review it! But first, let me tell you I’ve always wanted to buy online. However, since it’s not very common in Peru, I couldn’t do it until now. Actually, there is a kind of fear of it. Fear of most use of the web to do transactions online, actually. But, since I have lots of friends buying from ebay I decided to give it a try.

First, I needed my ID to get a credit card. I took me like 3 months to get it because of all the paper work required and because the processing office was so far from my home. Well, once I got it, I went to the bank to get my credit card (is more like a savings card). It was very quick; I got it in like half an hour? LOL I put some money in it and I was ready to buy. YAY!

I got home so enthusiastic; I forgot I had classes later. I was like OK, Andrea, calm down and let’s do this. I entered to ebay, picked the item I wanted to buy (HOT PINK BB Cream) and follow all the procedures. Once I finished I was like, OMG I just did it. Now let’s cross fingers so it can arrive safely.

And… after three weeks my package was delivered safely~ I was lucky I was in home when the delivery guy came. I was so happy I screamed at home and partied hard with my dog lol. Then, I proceeded to check out my purchase. The package was pretty simple (a carton box), but had Korean letters all over it. I got a pair of scissors and opened it. Inside was my BB Cream, three samples, the buyer’s thanks letter and a card from the buyer’s store. My BB Cream came in perfect state, none scratch on it. I was a bit disappointed, tho. I was expecting my package to arrive within two weeks after the purchase so I could use it for the U-kiss concert. But, it arrived one week later OTL. It’s ok, since the delivery time is not always the same and the time was in the range of time expected.

I also need to say I didn’t choose my order in a moment. I did my whole research before even getting my ID. I needed to be sure that my order wouldn’t end up being a scam so I looked up for a top rated seller with the lowest price in the web (I need to think in my economy two, you know? Lol)

Well, that was my whole experience. I hope this can help you to lose your fair in online shops. But don’t get me wrong. There are lots of fake sellers and scam out there, so you need to be sure the site you are buying from is trustful. Don’t trust in words but actions :) I personally think ebay is a great web if you choose carefully.

Do you have any experience buying in ebay or other websites? I would like to hear. See ya~
