    Thanks Linda... Hehe, I'll prefer not to if that's ok. Meant it as a "personal" poem (if you get what I mean) but since someone asked, I thought it alright to share on SSFF since we're all "family", hehe... But the SSFF FB page is "public", so I'll rather not have it up there, thanks...

    Hehe, unfortunately I have no idea if he had the chills or not (lol!) since he didn't read it on the spot (I wrote the poem in a card and placed it in an envelope) and he nearly forgot about it too, hehe... I just hope he likes it... Wink

    At Lindt Cafe

    We are at Lindt Cafe now. We meet lovely Kelly there and she will be our paparazzi. Thank you Kelly for doing that!

    We are all excited. I cannot stay still and at some point I hear the Black Box tune echoing in the bay. OMG that is Stan singing! I run to the stairs outside and look at the stage but I am too far. All I can see is the back stage. I can hear Stan and I sing along; take some pics of the gorgeous bay swarming with ppl. Then the end of the song and I see a police or security boat approaching the platform where Stan is performing. OMG they are going to pick him up OMG he is coming now! I go back to the girls to announce Stan is coming and my heart starts pounding out of my chest.... am I gonna make it? Kelly and the girls say breath, breath LOL didn’t work.

    We are invited to enter the cafe and sit on our reserved table. As I step inside I say to someone next to me... can’t remember who... "I don’t know if I am going to make it" I felt completely overwhelmed.

    We sit and I wait anxiously looking at the door for Stan to appear. The organizer comes to tell us that his brother Mikey and back vocalist Ashley will join us too. I felt more relaxed when I heard that. Than Linda says: “I can hear the screaming fans, he is here”

    I see him at the door. Smiling. He comes toward us. After a glimpse at our faces he says, smiling even more: “I met you guys today!” I think he felt more comfortable when he realised that. We shake hands and kiss. I strangely stop being nervous. My heart is not pounding. Calm and focus just come back to me at once. I definitely found a happy spot now.

    We are introduced to Mikey and Ashley. They sit and Stan talks about the performance (I think someone asked him) saying he felt funny cause the platform was moving, floating on the water but he had fun. We chat. I mostly listen at this stage trying not to stare at him LOL the blast of seen him in person so close in front of me is still strong so I like to observe his mannerism and the details of his face, the tattoo, his hands... just everything.

    Mikey is a lovely guy and engages us in conversation. I tell him that I used to chat with his wife Tam on FB. She was kindly telling me all Stan’s song choices during the idol show so I could passed them on to the fans etc, he laughs, funny az LOL

    With the corner of my eye I see Stan listening and staring at me OMG so I turn to him and say I chatted a lot with his mama April too on FB about him and idol stuff and then I stop talking at once because I see Stan’s face ---> LOL he says: “Omgosh Omgosh you are Simona! Omgosh you are .... “ dunno what he said after that because I went out with the fairies for a few seconds because of his reaction LOL

    When I came back I heard him say: “Is there a C?” And thank god Linda says: “yes in her surname” so he remembered my surname. Then he says before at the signing he was like hmmmmm he thought he knew my name but I said to him no C in my name (remember, dumb me?) .... so yeah he kept on going after that....”oh my gosh you are, oh my gosh you are.....” I stopped him and said: “Oh my gosh ---àme? LOL oh my gosh ----àyou!!! It is you Stan, I am here for you!” He is such a humble person my goodness.

    Then Mikey asks me where I was from because of my accent so I tell him the story. Then I confess to Stan I flew from Melbourne just to meet him. Well just! That is a lot LOL OMG it was sooo worth it!

    After he finally understood who I was I felt even more relaxed and I just had a ball.

    During the night Renee and Linda ask for a B’day song from him and he decides to sing a whole song for all of us as we missed out on his performance to be at the cafe on time. So lovely, caring and generous.

    They sing and play “Smashing Into You” for us. Stan sings his first note and I am in awe already. When he gets to the high register I am overwhelmed by the beauty of his voice I have never heard a heavenly voice like his. My eyes fill with tears but I don’t cry. No time to be crying I said I should be filming this special moment. I try few times to get the camera out of the bag but I just cannot coordinate my movements. Not only his voice but the intensity of his performance was mesmerizing OMG words cannot describe. At last with a humongous effort I get the camera out and start filming but without looking at the screen. My eyes are glued on Stan, mesmerizing, gorgeous Stan!

    After that we chat some more. He carefully listens to each of us, gives attention to all of us, shares his milkshakes LOL I real gentlemen. He is really a people person. We are all having fun, smiling, laughing, taking photos... sorry Stan for the jujus incident lmao

    While taking photos I chat with Mikey. He says I am awesome for flying from Melbourne just to see his little brother. I say it is soooo worth it and thanks to Jane who gave me and the other girls this unique opportunity. He was sincerely in awe of our dedication for Stan. The whole family is humble, down to heart, absolute wonderful people, will meet them again any time. I say to Mikey to say hi to Tam and mama April, da bomb!

    It is time to go now. Stan comes toward me and we both go awwwwwww ..... the biggest hug! I thank him for having shared this moment with us.

    I look at him and Mikey and Ashley approaching the exit and Stan turns around one last time. We make eye contact and smile. No words need to be spoken. The gentle warm look in his eye will stay with me forever.



    This is the end of my story

    Thank you Robyn and Kiwiana, I feel you in my heart darlings.

    I thank everyone who asked us to write our story. I am so glad I was able to share it with you guys. The emotions i had were so strong I needed quite sometime to translate them into words. I thank you so much also cause writing this has gave me the oppurtunity to recollect more facts and feelings and relive the whole expereince again..... omg I feel so blessed.

    Heya Simo! I was reading your story and felt everything.I can still see how your face was but I can also remember how easy it was for you to get fully involved and not feel too star struck.
    The fact that he himself was comfortable made the difference huh?
    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm slide show moment going through my head again LOL

    LOL @ the continuos slide show ahahaha
    I will be honest, my bad english, I went and google "Starstruck" I wasn't sure LOl @ me
    So yeah, I think if Brad Pitt or Madonna would have been there instead I wouldn't have had the same effect and feelings. I don't see Stan as VIP or famous person. I see Stan like someone very dear to me and that i feel close to, like a best mate, to who I wish the best in life (remember when you said being buddies? exactly that gf) I see Stan, that's all. I just love him.

    I just want to thank everyone for asking for us to post our stories and commenting. I wish everyone this opportunity. Cause i seriously will never forget it, & i don't think Linda, Simo, Jane or Kelly will either.

    I sooooo misss Stan, when they walked away to leave it was like we all looked at each other. I now understand when you see Stan perform you want more, but when you meet Him you definately want more of the man himself... happy dance wub huyya
