Remembering Archuweek ’09: David’s Arrival!

David saying “Mahal Kita” to his Pinoy fans.


This day last year, the Archienoys’ & Archietects’ ARCHUWEEK started! And of course, the first event was…

David’s Arrival!


See below how the Pinoy Archies welcomed David!

Everyone was so startled when David and his band landed on the airport via Qatar airwyas at 3:30pm on May 12, 2009. It was a hot sunny day when fans flocked into the airport’s road just to greet David a warm & hot Filipino welcome! (video credits to AP’s eugene).

Mayhem at the airport. Only David Archuleta can cause this much commotion — which according to some press people -- was even greater than the welcome The Pacman got! David was mobbed left & right that the customary 15-minute stay at the VIP Lounge to Immigration and out to the Arrival Area stretched into almost an hour Great, great work Archuleta Philippines for warmly welcoming David -- Mabuhay indeed!  (footage provided by Naree, video credits to JR4DA)

Remembering Day 1 of the Archuweek!

JackRyan4DA best described what was going through the mind of every Pinoy Archie that time!

He is now walking the same soil and pavement that I have walked on! For the 1st time, has gone through the same infamous EDSA traffic that I go through daily; Is breathing the same polluted air am breathing; Is enduring -- but maybe not ☺ -- the same hot weather that makes SPF more relevant than ever.

Yet TODAY will be forever etched in my memory as one of those perfect days.

Read JR4DA’s EPIC RECAP OF DAY 1 (complete w/ links, vids, pics, etc) and together, let’s relive the wonderful day 1 of that memorable archuweek!

Media Coverage!

Translation: DA arrived past 3pm this afternoon. Soon as he went out of the arrival area of NAIA T1, he was mobbed by the media, even by the airport personnel and immigration people. People just kept taking pictures of/with the singer; afterwhich, he proceeded to the VIP lounge to take care of the necessary documents. Cook arrived earlier this afternoon. Both are here for their back to back concert. Archuleta is also set to guest on SIS, this Thursday.

Newsclip on the David’s arrival! I see banners! I see awesome archangels! I see beautiful people! I see Mr. sunshine! And the close up! Woo.

    I drove through Shang tonight when I picked up my daughter from work and I hd this huge grin all throughout the drive. Tons of mem’ries, that’s why!

    Thanks for re-posting my recap for Day 1. I just noticed that the link is to a DOCX file. For those interested to re-live the high-days of David summer, but could not open the DOCX file, try this PDF version
