Yesterday I decided to head out to the city to attend Kristal Tin & Raymond Wong’s autograph session at Sydney Sussex Centre! It has been awhile since I’ve attended one of these ^^ I wasn’t too keen on last years since Moses came (for the 3-4th time?? XD) but I do like both Kristal and Raymond!! I loved Raymond in his role in Bottled Passion and Kristal, especially in her recent series Black Heart White Soul.
It was a gloomy day yesterday but luckily didn’t rain too hard. The autograph session started at 4pm, so to ensure I got an autograph I turned up at around 2.30pm haha. As expected, there was nothing set up so I went to have some food. I came back at around 3pm when they set up the banners and the signing table just outside the centre along Dixon Street. I was first in queue lol….Shortly after, a few others joined me and since we were the first ones there, the management people asked us to take a seat at the front while we waited. They then started handing out the autograph tickets (plenty to go around! I think they were still handing them out around 4pm actually)
At 4pm, Kristal Tin and Raymond Wong came out and I was sitting right in front of them~~ YAYYY! Kristal was so elegant in real life (just like on TV actually haha) and Raymond Wong looked pretty chilled and polite. I waved at Kristal and Raymond several times who waved back ^^ Kristal mentioned a lady in Sydney called out to her “Mrs Ko” (Go- Tai) . Kristal was stunned and didn’t really know how to react to her and replied “I’m Mrs To”. The lady said “You’re Ko Chit Hung’s wife” (Roger’s wife in Black Heart White Soul)..it was then Kristal had realised they called her character’s name out instead haha and then said”oh yes yes, I’m Mrs Ko”. ^__^
Kristal also joked that Raymond is now too popular so has become a snob xD It turns out that Raymond had some kind of throat infection so he couldn’t really talk. Poor thing! Hopefully he’ll get well soon!! He wanted to get well so he could sing at the TVBA Carnival. (Did anyone go to the carnival today by any chance?)
The talk with the stars was quite short, and the autograph session quickly commenced shortly after. I told Raymond I loved watching his acting and he thanked me by slighlty bowing his head. When I went to Kristal I told her I loved her acting and to add oil! XD She thanked me and told me she will!
And..I guess that’s it for this year. Very happy with my photos and autographs!!
