 Pinas Got Rocked by Benchsetter Taylor Lautner

Aside from his jampacked Global Benchsetter Fan Meet at the MOA Arena on August 17, 2013, our hunky Twilight Jacob aka Taylor Lautner’s mall visits at Glorietta & Mall of Asia were also blockbuster in attendance! And I was among those thousands of shrieking admirers 🙂

Missing his presscon, I arrived early at Glorietta to get a good spot for pics-snapping. Initially took photos of the newly-constructed pit where Taylor would emerge and then shots of the entire stage set-up etcetera. Around 3:35PM DJ Sam Oh went onstage, did a brief intro and later on called upon Taylor and the crowd simply went oh-so WILD!

“Mabuhay!” he shouted out in almost perfect Tagalog. Clad in a dark gray tee and jeans, Taylor who wanted to visit the Philippines got his wish upon being signed up by clothing giant Bench as its current Global Benchsetter alongside fellow Hollywood heartthrob Liam Hemsworth. He’s very happy and thankful to all the love and support he has gotten from his Pinoy fans.

Fifty TL fans and some guests of Bench got the chance to have their handshake/hug/photo op moments with him with an autographed poster as memento. Some even had their warewolf/Twilight shirts signed. One common thing I’ve noticed is that majority of the fans who met Taylor for the first time were calm and behaved but perhaps deep inside their hearts were racing and kinda nervous! It was the little girl fans who were excited who even ran up to Taylor and hugged him very tight. Aww how su-weet!

Here’s a BONUS part! Immediately after the meet & greet portion, Taylor to the surprise of fans who were on the barricaded sides went down to them from downstage right to left just to sign more autographs! TL even managed some selfie snaps as the crowd got thicker and wilder causing a mad stampede! You can just imagine his security going crazy since Taylor tried to bypass them just to get closer to his fans who waited hours and even years just to see him literally upclose! Been a long while since I last saw fans shedding tears of joy after seeing their idol. Last time I witnessed such was during Puerto Rico’s Menudo Manila concert years. Wow! His personal entourage made sure they took lotsa pics to show to more people back in the States.

Kidz just can't stop loving Taylor and vice versa!

@Mall of Asia Atrium, kidz just can’t stop loving Taylor and vice versa!

Didn't leave empy-handed - TL signed my busy sling bag! Love yah Tay! Mwah!

After 45 minutes or so, the Glorietta appearance was done and off Taylor went to the Mall of Asia Atrium for his last stop.

Yours truly also headed to Mall of Asia to witness TL’s Meet & Greet. Despite habagat rains, hundreds of fans showed up at the Atrium to lay eyes on Taylor. He did not disappoint and the crowd went crazy seeing him wave back at them. TL thanked Ben Chan and the whole Bench team for the opportunity to represent their brand. He was also satisfied with another campaign ad he did the day before.

Already familiar with what he did at Glorietta, I knew Taylor will again go downstage, reach out to the crowd and sign more stuff. Since the peeps in front of me already left after seeing him, I found myself within his reach! Ooh yes I was going to have better close up shots but I had no card nor paper for him to sign. As Taylor slowly inched his way on from the side crowd, my heart raced as he was just a few feet away from moi! When Taylor finally stood at my post, I said, “Taylor sign my bag!” Which so he did! Yayyy!!! I think I froze for a few seconds, haha, then snapped one more shot of him moving away. BEST Fan Moment! Speaking of fans, met Matet & Angeli after the event who felt like Lotto winners after having their TL event postcards signed. They were sad tho that he had to leave and catch a 10PM flight back to LA that same night.

Taylor went back onstage to say thank you and hoped to be back real soon. Like a flash, waved farewell and made his way out in the midst of non-stop screams. I have a positive feeling he will make a grand comeback!

Other Global Benchsetters include Lee Min Ho, Adam Levine, Bruno Mars, Jessica Sanchez and Joe Jonas. Many thanks Mr. Bench Chan for bringing Taylor over and more Benchsetters to come!

Cheers,
Ms_MARS 🙂 

"A nice guy, a really nice guy!" was Mr. Ben Chan's feedback on Taylor. Absolutely right, sir!
