OHmy god! Im so exausted! Like u cannot imagine! I have bruices all over my legs, but I
survived...thanks god!...mANY fans asked me to write my story..so here I go. I was so busy at work but i had to come here ;).
Well...Let me tell you a little bit about my adventure in NY...I flew from miami to NY on thursday
morning...I was so nervous I was going to forget something at home, but I just left and arrive to
NY around 12pm...I just waited there and I was going to meet with Melissa (NY hero girl)...I know
we had some problems in the past but i really dont like to fight with people and we were able to talk
and we resolved our problems. Well..since i had my suitcase, I was kinda worry where to leave my
stuff, so melissa offered me her house to drop my stuff. Finally melissa called me around 1pm and she told me to take a bus & train to her house...I was soooooo scared 'cause Im a tourist...I dont know anything about NY...People at the airport tried to help me but I was still in shock thinking something bad was going to happen. I asked this lady that work there how to get to melissa's house so she kinda explained to me and she told me to be careful...oh god! i was even more nervous. FInally they gave me direcctions and I was ready to leave and then the same girl called me again and she told me her coworker was on his way to the same place I was going, so he was going with me. I was kinda like "oh no!" but then i looked at his batch and he looked harmless, so i just got on the buss and then the train and thanks god melissa was there.
I told u I was forgetting something, I forgot my Iphone charger..hahaha!.i was sooooo mad!! but well. I got changed, ready and I left my suitcase at melissa's house, so we left and she showed me a little bit of Queens...It was really nice.
Then Melissa dropped me at the apple store so i can charge my phone and she went to finish her stuff for enrique. I was at the apple store for almost 2 hours trying to charge my phone. At this moment, Maria & Maria's mom were already camping out since 12pm!! wow!! Maria u really deserved to jump on stage and get enrique all for u!...it was all worth it. Melissa & I got to the rockefeller plaza around 7:30pm and maria and mommy were so nice to sneak us in. There were already other people on line. thank u girls!! So nice for doing that. Melissa and I also passed by Enrique's hotel but there were no signs of enrique, so we just kept walking. Finally we just camped out there for hours! At this moment
people kept asking "who's gonna be performing?" and Maria & her mom put a big sign saying
"enrique iglesias line starts here" hahahha! and they kept asking...so annoying! Or they were like
"who's gonna be here? Julio? the father?" hahahha! get out here! hahahaha!! Also this guy that
work for today's show web site, he also started asking questions about Enrique...he interviewed
melissa...He was sooooo nice!!. And we came out in the today show blog...hahahaha!
By the way, we were on the line where people didnt have any VIP or fan passes at all...We just had
to wait for them to organize the lines for fan and VIP passes. I had 2 passes for me and melissa
and i was still waiting for Amalia and Isabel and they had an extra one, so I asked them to give it to
Maria, but my dominican daughters took a lot of time to get to the place...hahahaha!. Also,
Melissa got a fan pass from her friend but she was not sure if her friend was coming, so Maria's
mom was still pending :(.. Finally they opened the line for fan passes and Melissa and I were the
first ones on line....yay!!... but I felt bad for Maria and her mom 'cause they were there sooooo
early on line, but I knew we were going to work on something. We just waited and waited...I was soooo
tired already!!. Around 11pm finally Amalia and Isabel got there from Dominican Republic and I
just sneaked them up because come on! They are family too, so I wanted them to be with us, and Isabel
gave Maria her extra pass...so thanks god Maria had a fan pass. So were taking turns the whole
time going to get something to eat or seat on the chairs...I was soooo stress already 'cause there
was a VIP line too going first, but I kept focusing on enrique...hahaha!.
There was this stupid guy that worked for the today show talking shit about enrique....Maria heard everything but he was saying things like: "ohhh enrique thinks he is a diva!...come on! I dont care about his stage, Im gonna close it 'cause his manager told me, so we wont have fans around, and if he doesnt like it, he doesnt have to come back"...things like that...I was like: "no he didnt!...ashole!"...but maria can tell u more of what he said 'cause she was the one that heard everything. She was soooo pissed off with that guy too.
Finally melissa's friend got the place and she brought a friend with her and she gave melissa that
extra pass, so at this moment I gave my extra pass to maria's mom...yay!! We were soooo ready!!,
but only the guy that was with maria and her mom...we couldnt get him a fan pass, we tried
everything but nothing!...but they took turns so he wouldnt be alone...Poor thing! he sang Hero for
all of us..he got a really nice voice...too bad he was not able to come with us on the line. I also saw
Richie!! hahaha! the guy that helped me last year, but he didnt recognize me that much...hahaha!
but he was like "oh yeah yeah...from last year"...hahaha! He was so sweet, but i just thanked him
from last year, but i told him to help me if anything, and he said "i'll see what i can do" but he
didnt do anything...I was on my own!! hahaha!
The time kept going slowly 12am, 1am, 2am...gosH!!! I was soooo sleepy already and tired!!...Some
fans were making signs for enrique...We needed something to distract 'cause we weregetting
soooo stress! hahaha! Around 3am people with VIP passes started showing up. The VIP line kept
growing and growing......I was like "noooooooo!!"...I was sooooo nervous and scared we were going to end up in a really bad place. Around 5am there was a hugeeee line for VIP people...Oh god!! I was soooo sad already 'cause i flew from so far to get a bad view...GRRRR!!! But well..I was still praying and praying...
They finally checked our names and we got our fan passes...yay!. We were ready to get in, so VIP people went in first...gosh! I saw the whole line going there first...I was soooooo sad!! Finally it was our turn and I was the first one , so the guy scortted us to the place...so while we were walking with the guy, I was just saying "forum girl power forum girl power!" hahaha! and it was already full on the front, so thanks god it was still little bit empty on the right side of the stage, so i tried to sneak in and push a little bit and bang! i was on the front!! hahahaha! thank u lord!!! We kinda split up 'cause we had to get the best view. Melissa bas behind some little girls, so she was able to see fine I guess. I had a great view for the cat walk but I couldnt see that much the front 'cause there was an idiot with a big sign and i coudltn see that much....so annoying!!! but when enrique approached, he was right there in front of us! MAria and her mom were on the front too on the circle in front of me....heheheh!..So everything worked
out perfectly!!..yay!!...Oh god! I was sooooo tired already!! but we still waited for enrique...tic toc tic
toc tic toc.
Here's the video where they asked me the trivia question...hahahaha! so embarrasing! the lady was so nice!! ...She asked me where I came from so i told her miami and then she went like "so enrique kissed u too?" so i was like "yeah" and i showed her my pic and she was like "ok!I want these girls on tv, bring the camera over here" hahahaa!! At the beginning i thought she was going to ask me questions about me flying to NY, but then she is like "I got a trivia question" ...I went like "ohhh my god! dont mess it up ines" hahahahah!!..I also thought about Miami dolphins but miami dolphins football and he likes soccer over football...so I got it right :)
Finally all the band reharsed without enrique...I dont know why....Maybe he was late...that's not new of course...hahaha!... but well. Also Leonard (the guitarist) was looking good! hahahaha! I filmed him when he was rehearsing "tonight" hahahaa!! He is such a cutie. Then I saw my papi chulo Andres...hahaha! He was so serious checking the stage and all that...hahahaha!.
Finally the king arrived hahahaha! enriqueeeeeee!! wooooohooooooooooo!!! He sang "tonight" but he was just reharsing but he sang the whole song for us...hahaha! so he sang again the same song live...hahahaha! so cute!! So we heard "tonight" twice!! There was this little boy behind me, he was pushing me...god! So annoying!! but when I turned around...He was a small kid!! Like 6-7 years...so cuteeeeee! so i tried to get him on the front so i told the girl next to me to move a little bit more to get him in....the kid was sooooo cuteeeeeeeee!! He even got his lego camera to take pics...so cuteeeeeeeeeeeee!! he was so happy to be in the front thanks to me ;) ....
After that, they started filming Melissa for hero girl 2010....She was so happy too, almost
crying...awww!....All of us were so excited already...wow! Coudlnt wait anymore. Finally!! wooooohooooooooo!! Enrique started performing....the crowd went crazy about
him..gosh!! it was amazing! it was full of people...i was so happy for him. When he sang "be with u"
oh god!! He went to the floor and he bended over and people from the back started pushing and I
swear of god I thought they were going to break my legs...it was a nightmare....i tried to breath in
and push back...it felt really bad and then I saw Maria going on stage, so I put my leg on the stage
ready to jump but then I saw maria's mom going up too, so I just chickened out...hahahaha! I
couldnt do it...shame of me! hahahaha!!....I think enrique saw me, but it was just crazy when he
came over and people were all over me...gosh! it was soooo crazy!!!!! I hate to be that short! i
coudlnt see that much...hahaha! So when he finished his performance, we saw the band leaving so
melissa was like "let's go let's go let's go". So we tried to get out, but I was so sad enrique only
sang 3 songs!! and he sang be with u again like last year at the today show...like come on! again?
:(...I was expecting dirty dancer or even ayer since he is promoting those or at least i wanted him
to sing rythm devine or do you know, but well...I had a blast over. Finally, we got out from there
and went straight to the hotel...gosh! it was a loooooooooooong walking...and melissa's friends
were coming with us too. Gosh! we walked like for 10min...gosh! what a loooong walk! My poor
legs!!...Finally we got to the hotel and we saw 2 fans but we werent sure if enrique was going to go
back to the hotel or just leave straight to the aiport plus my sister told me they announced him on
"al rojo vivo" a show in miami, so he had to be in miami at 5pm, so whatever...we just waited
there....I wanted to go back to the today show but melissa kept telling us to stay there, so we just
listened to her. Finally, we saw these 2 big SUVs and I was like..."is that? is that?" and we saw
enrique getting out from the car...hahaha! "run for your life!!" hahahah! so we went to say hi and he
started taking pics with other fans...It was like 10 fans around there, but he was moving really fast
to the hotel entrance. I said hi to abel and fernando....and I saw andres on the car and I didnt
approach to him 'cause I was with enriqueeeeeee :( ...but well maybe next time. THen I was next
to enrique and i didnt say anything , I just loked at him waiting for him to turn around hahahaha!
and he looked at me and turned around back and then looked back at me again and tap my arm and
said "ineeees!!" hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Oh god! how embarrasing! and I just went blank!
hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! i didnt even know my name was Ines or from where i came
from...hahahaaaaaaaaaaa!! I was like an idiot looking at him...I even had a gift i got him and i didnt
give it to him...what an idiot! hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! what's wrong with me!! is it only me
or what?? how annoying when that happens! hahahaaaaaaaaaaa! So he kept moving and moving
so i was like "should I ask him for a pic?" gosh! hahaha! i didnt know what to do 'cause i dont
wanna look a pain in the butt, so I just put my iphone on facetime and i told him to look and he
looked at the camera like "where do i have to look" hahahaha! Now...I didnt wanna show my picture no
more....hahaha! 4 real! I dont like it when people is like "again?? dont u have millions of pictures
with him?" So annoying but i dont care anymore..people are like annoying...it's not fair. but well..whatever!...
Here u go...Enrique and I! yay!!...
After we saw enrique, amalia and isabel got there and he was still on the hotel....so they missed
him...:(...I tried to wait with them so they can meet him and at the same time give him my present
but we had to go :(...but it was such a great adventure! really worth it!!..
After that, I went to melissa's to pick up my stuff and then headed to New Jersey with my best
