I went to Grand Indonesia with a good buddy of mine named Bernhard, who is into culinary as well. If it wasn't for him, I would not be able to shook hand with a legend, chatted with a great chef, and took pictures with the host of Aroma.
It was a dream come true. I met my childhood idol, in the flesh, and I was contaminated with joy and excitement. "I'm a big fan of yours ever since I was in Elementary School. I watch your show, Aroma, every Saturdays," I stuttered. She smiled and thanked me, and welcomed me to take a picture with her. It felt like as if I got a backstage-pass of Super Junior's concert.
We took pictures, we had a brief chat, we shook hands, then we waved goodbyes. She was very busy because her cooking show was going to start in about a minute. "Thank you, " I said. She replied with a "You're welcome, and thank you as well." along with a smile. "Dream comes true, right," said Bernhard. I nodded with a big smile on my face. I'm a very happy fangirl.
