New Moon fan event in Japan

Rob Pattinson and Chris Weitz were in Japan recently for a New Moon fan event, and Twilighters Malaysia got a chance to go!
We were placed next to the press photographers and we came to know that once the event starts, we are not gong to be allowed to even stand (or raise anything above our heads). And I'm thinkin, how am I gonna get pictures...You guys... :((((. We even enquired to the officials on the possibility of one of us to stand at the press designated area so that (at least) we can stand and take photos (better vantage point) but we were turned down. So sad...
Regardless, we are still optimistic and can't wait for the event to start, can you??? We know you can't too (especially the part of waiting for Robert's pics right, I have a bunch of them..hehehehe)..
Right. So the event kicked off at about 7pm (if I was not mistaken) with address by the two MCs (one Japanese speaking and one English speaking, thank god - you can view one of them down here) and the crowd is already pretty much excited at this point. We were told to control ourselves, no standing or jumping or waving our hands or balloons so that we will not disturb other fans who (also) wants to see Rob! We first thought that it will never happen but surprisingly, all of us (despite the hooting and "I Love You Rob's"), managed to stay on our seats, well, I was reprimanded like 5 times and was sure that the next time, they might just escort me (with honors) out of the room, LOLS!!!
All was good till Rob actually makes his appearance, the atmosphere just gets electric and better!!! Well, I (honestly) did not even notice Chris (I'm so sorry Chris) in the beginning but man, THAT IS ACTUALLY EDWARD CULLEN THERE, WALKING UP THE STAGE, LOOKING AT US, LOOKING AT ME (~~sighs)!!! OMG! OMG! OMG!!!
So, Okay. Edwards (oops), Robert came up and was introduced then Chris came up and was introduced and they in return get to introduce themselves (like we need any introduction...). Chris said something about wanting to make it short as he knows it's Robert we came to see or something like that (aww, Chris...don't do that :p, we want to see you too, honest). Robert tried his hand (or tongue?) at a little bit of Japanese and greeted the crowd with "Genki Desu Ka?" <--means something like (if I'm not mistaken) "How are you doing" or "Are you OK" and the crowd crooned "Genki Desu" in unison, so I pretty much think the crowd is pretty OK (why shouldn't they be? I AM, simply coz he's in the same room...LOLS...)...
Question and answer session follows but only two questions were allowed and if you hear from our video, both Azlina and I were like begging to ask questions. Sorry MEP! But we will definitely get the story done no matter what. Catch our coverage in the up-coming issue of MEP Magazine (publication date TBA). Six fans were picked from the lot (you can see pics at our Flickr page) to become finalists for the LA Premier Trip draw and they had Robert and Chris seated on a balcony portion of the stage and the girls pleading their case on "Why should they be the one going to LA". One of them actually broke down in tears... ~~EMOTIONS...
Both Robert and Chris decided that it's too much for them to decide and they ended up playing the string game . There were 6 strings connected to a box, two of them connects to Robert and Chris each. The (lucky) fan with her string connected to Robert's gets to go to LA with a newly presented Twilight necklace (Rob helped her to wear it..aww...) and the (also lucky) fan with her string connected to Chris gets a pair of Edward and Bella dolls, signed by Robert and Chris and a red cape from the Volterra scene. The other four 'finalists' also walked away with a red cape each (and did I mentioned hugs from Robert and Chris?)...
That was the end, Robert and Chris left and Robert made a grand re-entrance on a (real) balcony for like 3 minutes...
Check out their full report, and also photos.
