Weekly Wonders: I nearly caught Justin Bieber’s Yeezy!!!

 

Last weekend was insane! I was at the Wireless festival in Frankfurt, and I never imagined to experience the crazy stuff I did.

First of all, The rest of the week before the festival was rather calm. The only exciting thing that happened was the beginning of the sales in various shops like Zara and Mango. Of course I did some shopping :’D More about that at the end of this week.

I also came across a beautiful rose garden and Β had to take an instagram picture.

  • Saturday, June 24th

After that, the long-awaited festival arrived and with that, two days filled with worldstars performing on one stage.

On Saturday, it was mainly german rappers like Materia and Genetikk. There weren’t many artists we wanted to see that day, and Rae Sremmurd had cancelled weeks ago as well, so that was a huge disappointment for us since he was one of the main reasons for us to go there.

During the breaks, we went outside to explore the area, take some photos and eat something. My friend and me decided to get some rolled ice cream which is a food trend now. The queue was endless and we stayed in line for one and a half hours in total. While I was standing there though, I suddenly saw a group of girls asking a stranger to take photos of them. Then I noticed that two of those girls were famous german youtubers. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Just 5 minutes ago, I was talking about one of them, and now she was standing in front of me. Of course I had to ask for a picture :’D It’s the picture with the readhead :’D She is one of the funniest youtubers ever :’D

After we were finished with eating and roaming, we went back inside to secure some spots until the headliner at 9.45pm who was The Weeknd for that day. Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos of him, because my phone died. It was amazing although he was around 20 minutes too late and finished 5 minutes too early. Plus, he always stayed in the back of the stage :/ I enjoyed his starboy tour performance in Cologne way more than the festival performance.

By the end of the night, I was shattered. Everything was hurting, including my right eye. I stayed at my friend Giulia’s house, and after chatting for a while in the middle of the night, I had to excuse myself and go to bed.

  • Sunday, June 25th

We decided to meet at 12.30 at noon to walk to the festival area. The first performance was at 1.55 pm by german trap rapper Rin. My friends were die hard fans, and I had to say that he was pretty good. Actually, Lil Uzi Vert should be performing, but he cancelled last minute, so they had to arrange someone different. Rin is less popular of course, but there were still some fans of him.

Of course, everyone was waiting for Justin Bieber’s performance in the evening that day, so the place was filled with Beliebers. The crowd got tighter and tighter, and people were pushing us forward all the time.

We saw so many more artists perform, including Machine Gun Kelly, Jess Glyne, Sean Paul, until we were finally waiting the last minutes for Travis Scott. He was one of the reasons I went to that concert. And he was freaking awesome!!!!! He leaned in to the crowd all the time and he even made one of his fans rap. As a thank you he gave her his hat.

Of course the show was over too soon, but it was about time for us to get out to get some fresh air, drinks and food. We were standing in the crowd from 1pm – 7pm!!! 6 HOURS!!!

We had some pizza and water before getting inside to get some good spots for Justin Bieber. We didn’t want to be too much at the front, so we were standing rather at the back right side of the first block. At that moment, we didn’t know that this was the most perfect spot.

Justin Bieber was evenΒ earlier than on time. He entered the stage at 9.26 pm (4 minutes earlier than scheduled), and his performance was lit! It was probably the most professional performance of that festival. I liked how he was just walking around the stage and trying to look his fans straight into their eyes. When he was not dancing of course. His voice is actually pretty amazing life. I just felt like he was way better life than on audio.

Anway, I was dancing, singing and screaming together with the other beliebers, when I realized that he was coming to an end. It was getting weird now, because he started taking off his shoes (white Yeezy) and throwing them into the crowd. Into OUR DIRECTION!!!! The first one came flying into my face and I kept staring at how he was throwing away the second Yeezy. The crowd was raging by now and the girls around me were running, pushing, falling to the ground and crying. A tall guy who was standing behind me caught the he first Yeezy. The second one flew to the second block right behind us.

GUYS!!!! I just missed the jackpot of my life! The right Yeezy is on ebay now, selling for 6,5K!!!! And it’s still going until next week Tuesday. Here, you can have a look.

I think I have never regretted anything more than not catching Justin Bieber’s Yeezy. I would be planning my asia trip now. I could be buying a new camera and a Macbook with that money. My life would be changed.

Can’t believe it! I was centimeters aways from catching it. It flew right past my head :'( How did I not jump??!?! WHY??!?!?

I guess in that moment, I was just too perplexed, suprised, astonished to move anything, neither brain nor body.

I’ve gotta say that Justin Bieber gave me a once-in-a-lifetime experience here. It was one of the most unique and energetic, and professional performances I have seen so far. Everything was thought-through, but at the same time full of heart.

I am aware that JB treated his fans badly in the past, but I think that most of his performances were like the one that I witnessed at the weekend. I am not suprised why his fans love him so much now. I might even commit to becoming a Belieber as well. :’D

Anyway, I took a video of that shoe, and now I put it on youtube. You can watch it here:

After that exciting turn of events, we left the concert area and headed back to the car and drove back home on an 2-hour ride.

Although we were a bit disappointed that we didn’t catch Justin’s Yeezys, we were still content about what we got to experience at the festival.

Can’t wait for the next festival experience to come :D

I hope your weekend was just as eventful as mine.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!

Korean Food, Indie Party, Turkish Breakfast

Reading this title, you might wonder whether I have been to Seoul, London, and Istanbul consecutively. Unfortunately, I don’t have the money for that, but that shouldn’t be a problem if you can visit one of the most international cities in Germany, and obviously the most central city of Europe, Frankfurt :)

I have stopped counting how often I have already been to FFM (Frankfurt am Main), but every time I visit that city, I see and experience new things. This time, we went to visit ouf friend Giulia who is doing an internship at Nintendo there. Of course we couldn’t walk into the Nintendo company, that’s not allowed for visitors, but they are closed at the weekend anyway :) So, my friend had free time to pick us up and spend some time with us. At first, we went to take a snack with us from Simit Saray, a turkish bakery chain that sells ring shaped sesame pastry, and different kinds of sandwiches and samosas as well. With our snacks, we went to sit next to the Main river in order to chat, eat and relax.

The sandwich was super tasty, and I love fritz limo drinks <3

A friend from Giuli also joined us later. Her name is Agne, and she also does an internship at Nintendo together with Giulia. She is from England, so I loved her accent. She brought strawberries, orange juice and beer, and we got to know each other as well. It was a nice afternoon by the river Main. It also was quite nice observing the surfers and boats passing us by :)

And there were some funny animals

I don’t know what kind of birds these are, but they also swim in the river :)

After staying by the river from about 2-5pm, we parted with Agne to go Giuli’s flat so that we could put our bags into her room and prepare for the korean restaurant. It is close to where she lives. We could even walk there :)

When we entered the restaurant, the owner already awaited us because Giuli told him before that she would bring guests. She is already a regular there :’D

We ordered Bibimbap, and one Zap Chae (glass noodles) into the middle. That was quite a lot to eat, because we also got free soup and a lot of garnish as you can see on this photo.

The free garnish :) Kimchi is also included in it. It wasn’t that spicy actually.

The whole table :’D

We were so full afterwards! There is a lot of green food in the korean cuisine, but also a lot of meat and spicy things. The meat was too fatty for my taste I have to admit, but you can also order a bibimbap without the meat. Next time, I will do that I think. There is also a hot spice in the dish, but you have to mingle the dish properly, then it won’t be too spicy :) I really liked the Bibimbap, but I somehow couldn’t get to like the Zap Chae. The noodles felt and tasted quite slimy. And the vegetables are mostly cooked without oil or anything. That’s why koreans often put hot spice into their dishes to give them taste. Although it is quite healthy to cook vegetables without adding any oil, it can taste like nothing if you don’t like spicy so much. The soup was a seaweed soup with octopus tentacles in it, so I didn’t touch it. I don’t like soups in general. The only soup I like is lentils soup. And I don’t like seaweed so much neither. The restaurant was pricey, but all korean restaurants are. The food was plenty, we couldn’t finish everything, although we were 3 people, but the Bibimbap is worth another go, but without meat for the next time :D

After we paid and wanted to set off, the owner called us back and offered us some honeydew melon *o* that was sooo yummy!!

While we were eating, the Germany worldcup match was also playing. When we wanted to go to the public viewing, the streets were quite empty. We met Agnes on the way as well, and when we finally arrived at the public viewing, we made it to the more exciting second half.

Unfortunately, Germany didn’t win that day, but it was a draw. After the game, we went to a club named Zoom. That club was literally playing my playlist! At first, they rather began with 90s R’n’B and Indie Pop. But soon they played some awesome Rock songs from Yeah Yeah Yeahs and MGMT. My sister disliked the club at first, and was hanging on her phone all the time which annoyed me a lot. But soon they played a lot of Hip Hop. Towards the end, they even played Drake and The Weeknd *o* I really loooveeed loved loved that club so much!!!

We arrived at Giuli’s flat at about 6 am, and had to wake up after 4 hours again :’D Our bus would leave at 1 pm, so we could have some time for breakfasting at Simit Saray. We had fried eggs with Sucuk (a turkish garlic sausage)

20140622_113750

Awww godddd!! It looks so yummy! I am getting hungry again!! One meal, including the fried eggs with sucuk, the sesame rings, and tea, cost exactly 5€. That’s fairly okay :) The taste was amazing! You definitely have to have turkish breakfast here if you appear to visit Simit Saray :)

The weekend, or rather the Saturday in Frankfurt was great fun! We met a lot of new people, and had a great time partying and eating ;D

Looking forward for the next trip for Frankfurt :)
