Today, I travelled all the way to Causeway Bay to meet James and Oliver Phelps from the Harry Potter movies. I never thought I could get their autographs or take pictures with them, and I was much too far away from the barrier. The heat was killing me and the rain was not helping. I was just about to give up and told my friends to leave, but the people pushed really hard. I guessed the twins are near, but I was too short (I’m only 5’1”) and my arms could get no where near to them. I had already given up, but I couldn’t even move.
Trapped between the tall HP fans, was a thick air of reek (smell of sweat), and me. If you can’t see how terrible the smell is, try smelling your feet after you went for Marathon! Trust me, those HP fans might even be worse than that, coz you won’t stick your feet up your nose for more than a second. I was in the reek for at least 5 minutes!
Just when I was about to throw up, and trying hard to cling onto life, the people behind me pushed even harder. In a blink of time, I was standing right in front of James Phelps! I just stuck out my iPod touch for him to sign. He thought I wanted to take a picture with him so he said “It’s not on.” Ha, a picture, why not? My arm was too short so James held it for me, we took the picture and he signed on the back.
For Oliver’s autograph, I couldn’t get it outside Times Square. When they were getting away, I shouted “Oliver! You owe me an autograph!”
Never thought he would pay this debt! I finally got near him inside Times Square. He almost got away again, but I pat his wrist and begged “please, Oliver, please.” He signed.
Thank you, James. Thank you, Oliver.
You taught me that there is always hope. I seriously never thought I could get your autographs, I could have possibly died in the reek, but surprises came. I got your autographs. Thank you so much.
I am always grateful when a celebrity takes notice of me or my words (twitter). I was just kidding about that “debt” Oliver owed me, I am actually really grateful to be able to get both of their autographs. So if you guys, James, Oliver, are reading this, I am more than grateful. I cannot even ask for more.
Thank you so much.
HAIL JAMES PHELPS!!!
HAIL OLIVER PHELPS!!!
ps - I only like 3 actors in the Harry Potter movies, James, Oliver Phelps and Tom Felton. I wouldn’t make a fuss even if it was Daniel Radcliffe, Rubert Grint and Emma Watson, or someone else.
pps - Thanks to Chloe Chau and Monka Ng. Thanks for inviting me to this event. I love you guys!
