A year ago on October 19, I remember talking with a friend about photographers who goes on tour with bands and musicians. I told him, “I wish I’ll get the chance to be these guys, going on the road with a band I really like.” One year on, exactly on October 19, I had the chance to go along with @fazerdaze on her last three cities of her tour.
It all started with a poster that said Fazerdaze would perform on a concert in Indonesia. I was over the moon! I couldn’t think straight and before I knew it I was sending Fazerdaze a DM to confirm whether it’s real. “Hi,… is it for real?! You’re coming to Indonesia???” And honestly I couldn’t help it, so I sent her another message, “I really hope I can be your official photographer and videographer during your show in Indonesia❤" It didn’t take long before I got reply. “Hey! Ok! Please email my manager Ash.” WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED.
THIS. IS. BEYOND. MY. WILDEST. CRAZIEST. DREAM.
I REALLY FELT LIKE JUMPING MY ASS OFF TO THE MOON JUST FROM THIS EXCITEMENT ALONE!
I found out later that Fazerdaze was indeed going on a Southeast Asian tour so… obviously, on my email I offered myself to document Fazerdaze on her last three destinations. A few days after my email, Ash replied and I don’t any word can do justrice to describe that feeling. If I wanted to jump to the moon before, this approval email made me wanna jump straight to the sun if I could!
HOW ON EARTH?!
And then. KL.
The first time I saw her, Fazerdaze, standing. In front of me. I was so star struck I was actually shaking. I cried a bit (I think) when I heard all the songs I previously listened on Spotify and Youtube were played LIVE BEFORE MY EYES!
Funny how the universe works.
It was one of my dreams to be involved with the music and the tour of Fazerdaze, but more importantly, it was really... beyond belief to make new friends with everyone of them.
