    Here’s the beautiful “Thank YOu” video David tweeted about … SOOOO glad he got to see it… *SOBS*

    What an experience!! Up @ 3 a.m. to watch this Bench promotion/concert. What a pleasant surprise. A video of David’s photo shoot, David singing 5 songs and giving his little speeches plus screams and confetti by the bucket loads. Twitter was exploding and there has been a steady stream ever since. Thinking that this might be the last live performance it was definitely tear producing with a heavy heart but at the same time a very proud moment. David’s growth this past year has been so significant from making his decision, dropping Jive, deciding on his MKOC tour, making his announcement, closing out his tour full of confidence singing hymns, Grooving to This Is Christmas, banging drums etc etc then going to the Phillipines to act, to sing, to speak eloquently, to modeling etc etc. Wow this young man has gained and given so much through these experiences. He is now comfortable with intimacy, singing love songs,and giving us more than we could have hoped for. To think he is still going to give more by recording songs in the US is so heartwarming.
    Proud to be a Lifetime fan of David Archuleta. Bless his soul and all of ours.
    Thanks for being here.

    That “A Thousand Miles” performance is priceless. Just listened to it. David’s confidence on the keyboard is astounding, his joy off the charts…

    …if I could fall into the sky…do you think time could pass me by…

    Guess that’s a recommended game plan for the next 2 years, eh?

    *researching falling into the sky* 😀 😉

  7. peppertara says:

    Aww, am so glad David got to see that heartfelt thank you video, so sweet. I do hope he leaves on his mission knowing that his fans will be here when he returns.
    Wow…some wonderful photos! Love the epic hair. 🙂 Need to watch the videos, yep….will get to those tonight. Wonder how long David will be in the Philippines, seems to be one love filled event after another, pretty fantastic goings on over there!

    ♥ Happy Birthday to you TOfan ♥

  11. emmegirl says:

    Wishing you a very special and Happy Happy Birthday Tofan!

    *I have that happy Birthday on CD and listen to it everyday on ride into town 🙂

    ((and want to thank you truly and sincerely tofan for the gem that SAz is))

  12. TOfan says:

    Thanks so much for the good wishes, you guys!! Look what I got in the mail?! This! LOL

    David’s last vlog in the Philippines… *sniff* … I just want to hug everyone there for showing him the love and respect he so deserves, and showing it in such a warm, fun, enthusiastic way, and for working so hard to share it all with the rest of us around the world … thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

    …and another hiLARious Vangie vid!!!

    Some translations, as per youTube comments, LOL:
    How do you address the following?
    D: Elder sister (Ate), Elder/big brother (Kuya), Uncle (Tito), Aunt (Tita), Lolo(grandpa), Lola (grandma)
    Mam-ser: “It’s a colloquial. There are too many people to address singularly so he just greeted “ma’am, sir” which is colloquially,”mam-ser” here hope this helps :)”

    “Pinoy na pinoy ka na at ‘pogi’ pa” means You’re really like a Filipino now and handsome too!  That pose he made is usually done by kids to look “pogi” hahaha

    Time 1:16
    D: Brother, do you have calamondin? (Kuya, may calamansi ka?)
    W: Oh, wait just a second sir (Ah, sandali lang sir.)
    D: salamat po! (thank you!)

  13. abanana77 says:

    Happy Birthday TOfan <3333 Giant THANK YOU to everything you've done at snowangelzz & creating a home here (((hugs)))

  14. peppertara says:

    Happy Birthday TOfan! Many wonderful wishes to you and thanks for all that you do….as David would say, I can’t thank you enough. 🙂 What a special, sweet card from refnaf!
    Aw David’s blog is full of thank yous, what an incredible experience he has had over there. I’m grateful too, to everyone over there who treated David like the prince that he is. ❤

  15. SandyBeaches says:

    {{{Happy Birthday TOfan}}}…David sent his vlog on the best day!

    I have enjoyed your take on the series as it rolled along. It was right on!

    David was treated wonderfully by the people while he was away, something that is easy to do when it is David.

    I hope that there is a huge, long running, “twitter party” being planned for his return, a huge one, that we can do! Finding him at some airport in one of the possible cities is a little tougher.

    Any TWI TTER PARTY planners nearby?


  16. Heidijoy says:

    Happy Birthday Tofan!! love the card Refnaf ha! ha!

    Love the Vlog and Trending parties.

    Would love to see a Welcom home one for David too SB

    I think they plan one right before NanditoAko too.

  17. peppertara says:

    LOL….the Vangie vids, hilarious! Cutest things ever, how many of these are there? Think this is the third one I’ve seen maybe. Luuuv them! Very impressed with David’s Tagalog too, he’s quite the amazing guy.
    SB, a twitter party for David’s return would be very nice!

  18. Heidijoy says:
