Happy New Year’s Eve!

It’s the Eve of a new year, 2013.  While all of you are ready to celebrate ringing in the new year, FOD has pulled together a few things to help you celebrate.

Let’s start with a reminder of how David celebrated NYE over the past years!

In Utah in 2008.  Wow, David certainly was popular for pictures that night.  This was wild!

In 2009, singing Don’t Stop Believing at the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas!  I don’t think I had seen this vid before.  Not bad acoustics even from this vantage point.

…and here is The Other Side of Down, New Year’s Eve 2010. One of the best TOSOD’s ever! Loved loved loved the styling this night.

Your Favourite David Archuleta 2012 highlights

We heard from many of you on what your favourite David Archuleta 2012 Memories were.    Some many of you know about, some others are more personal.  Joanie, Kalei and I will share many of your suggestions during our regular post days and our “Lite” days this week ….so stay tuned for the 2012 highlights all week!

Today we’ll spend a bit of time on reminiscing about

NANDITO AKO!

Top on the list for many was the Philippines Teleseries “Nandito Ako”

 

Credit: @canadianarchie

Sam (ohnopurple) put a nice gif together that gave us some Nandito Ako highlights!

Check out the description on wiki by clicking on the visual at right.  Great memories of:

  • many many fans logging onto hayag.com during early mornings, ensuring there was a working connection!
  • intently listening/watching Wil Time Big Time because we had no idea of the exact time of the start of NA.  Kinda loved that show by the end of the 5 weeks!
  • Getting rescued with a livestream by @SamLouiseG when the connection to Hayag went down
  • Opening up a few windows so we could get the English translation from ArchuletaPhils (Kricket, Jo, JR and Lorms ~ you SAVED us!)
  • David Archuleta fans worldwide as trending MACHINES!
  • Kalei’s hilarious recaps and FOD’s links for those who could not make it early in the morning!
  • Learning about lampa, balut, Batangas and leather watchbands
  • Hearing Josh saying “You’re drunk, bro”
  • Despising Uncle Stevil, wanting to be adopted by Yaya, wanting to adopt Aladdin
  • bunny suits, and getting stuck in bunny suits
  • Hilarious out-takes (thank you TV5 team!)
  • An interesting story that had us laughing, and crying!  MyDearWriter had us on the edge, on many occasions!
  • Enjoying David’s immersion in the acting process and doing a mighty fine job!  Seriously, a great acting debut!
We invite you to add your favourite things about NA to our comments!

Let’s start with the trailer.  Remember how excited we got when we saw this?

Trailer No. 1

And Trailer No. 2

…… and one more just before airing!  A personal invitation from David to watch.

Before we enjoyed the Teleseries, we enjoyed all the behind the scenes pics!

The Serenade!

“So you have a suitor?”

A sad, but then hopeful, ending

I’m adding one of my own personal highlights of 2012 associated with NA:  the Nandito Ako viewing party on this side of the pond, from Karin (@zerogravity1) and friends.  The bunny in the Josh Bradley suit kills me every time.  Too much fun and GREAT MEMORIES!  Wonderful that everyone could participate in this David Archuleta project!

I never thought I’d get hooked onto a soap opera, let alone one in a language I didn’t know, but, I did!  This was a nice surprise and great adventure and experience for David.  The TV5 family and the cast and crew were  generous with pics, vids and info during the taping and broadcast.   Thanks for taking all the worldwide David Archuleta fans along for the ride!

Be on the lookout tomorrow and the rest of the week for more 2012 highlights.

  2. jhen says:

    Happy New Year’s Eve! Great post, it brought back wonderful memories of Nandito Ako, a bit teary eyes, I don’ know why lol. Didn’t expected that David will become an actor in my homeland, Philppines. Those happy memories sill surely stay in mind and heart.

  3. Jhen says:

    Like all the behind the scenes pictures. I have a lot of favorite scene in NA, among those are the Bus Scene of Josh and Anya, Confrontation scene of Josh and Uncle Steve, the Beach slap scene of Josh and Anya and the pedicab scene of Josh and Anya where he tongue out to Anya behind her back lol, that was funny scene. I like also concert scene of David and Eula.

  4. kimk says:

    Pastel oh my goodness.. BEST HAPPY NEW YEAR EVE POST EVER!!
    thank you!!!

    oh man.. PLEASE let there be something like Nandito Ako again when he gets back!
    was EPIC!!

    DAVID ARCHULETA HUGGED ME (sounds better than “I hugged”; a girl can dream!) #BESTMEMORIES2012

  8. Penny (dangitdavid) says:

    AHHHH…..another fabulous post!! You guys continue to outdo yourselves!! Thank you Pastel…..I can’t wait to go back and take it all in and re-live every single video!! I too am not a soap opera fan, especially one in a foreign language but there we all were, at the crack of dawn, taking in every moment :). Having ODD makes a person do crazy things but I love it and wouldn’t have it any other way ;)

    I love the picture tweeted by Kricket!!! I remember being in tears watching this video and watching David tear up as he realized just how much his fans loved him, that we would support him in this important decision he made and that we were not going anywhere!!! A very heartfelt hug from the man and Kricket, cherish that hug forever :)

    I agree with @archuletaphils that 2012 has been a challenging year for both David and his fans but we have all only grown closer because of it! This Archufamily became so much stronger and bonded as one because we all love this man so much that we needed each other to get through this separation and we are sailing through it people!! After tomorrow, we can officially say he comes home in just one year!!!

    Didn’t mean to have such a long post but I just want to wish each and every one of you a very Happy New Year and as we move forward, trust in God and the Archuleta himself, that the best to come!! Love and hugs to you all <3

  36. Candy says:

    Oh how I enjoyed Nandito Ako, it was like a soothing balm for my feeling sad after the announcement soul! David was so dreamy in the series, MDW out did herself! The hair, the clothes, the near kisses, the hugs, the hair sniffing, the getting up at the crack of dawn to watch a TV Soap in a foreign language, AND the glorious songs that came out of the series! One of the best parts for me was being able to share it with all of you. So wish we had a dvd…

  37. Candy says:

    Pastel a truly wonderful post, thank you!! Its great to look back on the year and look forward to 2013.

  38. Candy says:

  64. Connie@Toronto says:

    Thanks for this nice post for the last day of 2012.
    Just want to let you know that if I did not hear about NANDITO AKO mini series I will not be a part of this Archuworld. This is where I started to become a fan although I know him already in Season 7 AI and like him already at that time but I’m not really following/interested to know more about him then. NA became the reason why I became a fan. I remember browsing the internet for all the episodes of Nandito Ako cos when I came to know about it, it was finished airing on TV5. Thank god with all this YT and was able to watched the episodes. I remember started watching it on Friday evening and never stopped until I finished it on Sunday. In less than 3 days I finished the whole mini-series. Hubby got a little mad of me cos I didn’t do anything but to be in the computer for those days. I really don’t know but what I felt that time is I need to finished it all. Then after that started browsing everything about David. Activated my tweeter, which made me add data plan in my wireless account . Then I bought his CD’s, first I got is TOSOD cos it’s still available in HMV, got his book in Chapters Indigo (which I finished reading in 3-4 days I guess), ordered Crush on line and then I found all the fan sites. It’s really what you called ODD. Yes I got that right from the start. I’m so new and I’m happy to be an Archies. I met new friends in tweeter. It’s a unique friendship that I will cherish. I can’t believe the strong impact he made to all of us. I missed the last 3 years of David but him being away gave me the chance to check out on so many things I missed about him. Now my only wish is to watch his concert when he return #2014. 2012 is a very memorable year for me cos I came to know David.
    I archived all my fave episodes of NA and watched it from time to time. Love the serenade, the slap, the breakup, and the watch. Hopefully we’ll get the DVD this 2013. #Crossfingers.

    As the year is ending let’s all be thankful for all the blessings we’ve had this year. I hope and pray for David’s safety and blessed him always in his mission. We’re all looking forward for his return in 2014 to see and hear him sing again for us.
    Apology for my long note, just want to share with you why NA is so memorable to me.

    HAVE A PROSPEROUS, HEALTHY, HAPPY 2013 to you all. :)

  71. breanne says:

    Thanks for the AMAZING post Pastel. LOVE the top 2 pics & LOVE all the Nandito Ako memories. That was definitely my top memory for 2012 of David. He really did a good job acting in it. Loved every scene David did, especially at the end when he and Anya are at the hospital with Holly. The ending with Anya & Josh together flying the kite was so sweet!! :) Still want a dvd with English subtitles!

    Be sure to vote on all the links that Pastel posted! Have a great New Years Eve everyone!!! :) :)

  72. Philly Fan says:

    Happy and Healthy New Years FOD. Loved the series Nakito Ako. Looking back and all the photos it seems to me that David may have had a crush on Eula even though she was not his love interest. I don’t know but it is the way he looks @ her that gives me that thought. Loved the part when he sung to her on stage he sounded amazing. Two very beautiful ladies.

    Pastel,Thanks for the amazing post. The pictures are gorgeous and I loved all the videos. The New Years video was a nice surprise. Enjoyed all the Nandito Ako scenes. David was marvelous and all the cast were perfect together. The acting was great and believeable. Had so much fun getting up and watching the show every morning. Mr. SGJ would turn the computer on and we’d watch it together. We were so happy David chose to go on with this series. He did a remarkable job and gave us so much from his trip to the Philippines. Hope he has another sucessful year on his mission. David wears so many hats and he wears them so well. Love you David.

    sarahhazel and kimk– Sure does sound good. It will be so much fun planning for the tour. Can’t wait. Better get a passport just in case and start saving up now. Do you think the tour is already planned. Remember someone won a ticket to it. Must be! Hmmmm :grin:

  81. Philly Fan says:

    Sarahazel!!!! He does have the melt look and some other things that probably can’t be discussed. His gaze is just perfect like he could swallow you with his eyes. I think I better stop now before I get banned. I remember when he was signing for fans @ the Philly AI 7 tour and when fans called his name or spoke to him directly he would give that person his full attention with those eyes and I know because I was there along with family members who were just mesmirzed. He is soooooooooooo handsome in person.

  82. cc halo says:

    kimk, I think it was grammyj over on SD who suggested “The BEGIN Again” tour. I think it would be perfect.

  83. donna says:

    Epic post, Pastel! Wonderful look back on the year, and NYE’s past.

  84. kimk says:

    Begin Again Tour sounds fabulous to me.. better yet..
    Begin Again World Tour sounds even better!!

  85. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello Linda, Candy, sarahhazel, Shanny, Miss Vicki, ray, Connie, breanne, Philly Fan and supergrandjudie!

    So many links to AWESOME David goodies! Forget sometimes how much is out there about David….and how much FUN it is to look back! THANKS guys!

    Passport…check ArchuTravel Fund….check Vacation time….check Now all I need is a TOUR! And from Kari’s tweet come 2014 we’ll have somewhere to go! HURRY 2014!

  86. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello cc haloand donna!

    kimk….Think the BEGIN AGAIN World Tour sounds AWESOME! Can you imagine the worldwide SPAZZING! Especially those countries that have waited so long to see David LIVE!

  87. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi VABeachArchie- Judy we haven’t had a dull moment since we fell for David. He is one dynamic human being. So glad we are his fans. We got a whole bunch of teriffic friends just like you. We are one big happy family thanks to David. I say we have excellent taste in music and people. Hope you have a Happy New Years Day.

    sarahhazel- Have a good time tonight partying. No plans for Mr.SGJ and me. We just stay home and he falls asleep just before New Years, every time. Gotta love him. BBL, dinnertime.

  98. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–that’s nice….that’s actually the way it was before we moved from CA….we just stay at home, watch the NYC NY countdown and just chill….but here, there were so many party invitations from friends and relatives since the holiday season started…..love it…..fun but also exhausting….haha….

  99. cq#DA2014 says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the wonderful peeps that keep this fansite going and so much fun to visit and to all that comment and lurk.

  106. Hello everyone, i am home from work, just wanted to wish everyone a Happy, Happy and safe New Year!
    Seems like we have been celebrating New Years for days now.
    Phils celebration started last night, EST is 3 hours ahead of PT and Hawaii is behind PT.
    We could celebrate for days if you still have it in you.
    Haven’t had time to read all the comments, but it looks like there is going to be some fun time to be had.
    ENJOY! ENJOY! ENJOY!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! :D

    What a great New Year’s gift we got from David and Kari today! Miss him like crazy but just seeing his sweet smile and knowing that he will get to read all those beautiful messages and the cards that were sent, makes it a little easier!!! Awwww and he has a little notepad in his breast pocket…..sweet!

  140. lizardj says:

    Happy New Year everyone! Wow! So wonderful
    to see David looking so good and happy!

  141. kimk says:

    Candy he looks fabulous.. too good to be true!!
    I am so thankful that they allowed that pic!!

  142. CindyUT says:

    Happy New Year, everyone!!!! I haven’t been able to post for awhile because of drama going on in my life. But, I just wanted to stop by and put in one last post for the year.

    Great end of year recap! I have so many fond memories of Nandito Ako! It’s so hard to pick a favorite scene because they are so many.

    I love the picture Kari sent today of David holding his birthday book. I feel like it was his “gift” back to us.

    Just think……tomorrow at this time all of us can officially say David will be home next year! When David made his announcement, it was still 2011 (okay…..near the end of 2011) and 2014 seemed SO FAR AWAY. Now, that 2013 is just hours away, 2014 is starting to feel so much closer.

    Everyone have a safe and happy New Year!!!! Be back later if I can.

  143. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–I save the pic too!!!….It will keep me energized till he comes back! :)

    Well, have to go to the NYE party……WISHING YOU ALL WONDERFUL GO-GETTERS A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :) :D

  144. HAVE FUN SARAHHAZEL, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! AND I MEAN HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, BECAUSE THATS WHAT WE ARE TODAY.

  145. glitter*girl says:

    omg just when i thought maybe david forgot about us he goes and tweets us a thankyou and a pic!!! what a sweetheart he is! :)

  146. jhen says:

    Happy New Year Everybody! So happy to see David with the birthday book as soon as I awake from hangover of New Years eve. What a nice New Year treat. He is glowing!

  147. jhen says:

    I’m confident that David will have a tour even Kari didn’t said 100% I always believe in David, if he said He will continue to do music. I’m sure he will.

  148. angelbymyside says:

    glitter*girl ~ David could NEVER forget about us!

  149. glitter*girl says:

    well hopefully that is true about david touring just wondering who is gonna pay for it. maybe he is still signed with sony asia? anyone know?

  150. glitter*girl says:

    angel~ yeah i know but he is so busy right now and trying to focus on his mission not us. so i thought maybe we would not get a tweet from him for a long time. i was wrong! yay! :)

  151. kimk says:

    glittergirl we are going to pay for it.. if I can plan on going to as many shows as I can!

  152. nora says:

    Happy New Year everybody, what a way to end this year, just got home and reading comments, couldn’t believe my eyes, he looks so handsome, have been missing that smile and sparkling eyes, can’t say thank you enough to David & Kari, and we thought that we would not hear from him, what a great surprise love it love him OMG is he gorgeous!!!!!!!!! He looks so happy and healthy, what a glow he has. Thank you soooooooo much Kari, you are the best.

  153. Candy says:

    How nice that we can enjoy the picture and not have to go underground or speak in code!

  154. JHEN, I’M SURE TOO. nothing in this world is 100% proof.
    I believe in David and i stand by his word.
    Hope you headache is better, Did you have fun?

  155. jhen says:

    Connie fr. Toronto- Welcome to Archu world! There’s no turning back lol. Better be late THAN never.

  157. cq#DA2014 says:

    Love that picture of David, thank you Kari!
    Let the speculation begin about tour 2014 and spazzing over the great glowing picture, lol.
    That’ll keep us fans happy for a while, lol.

  158. Janel aka Nellie says:

    That picture of David from him and Kari is beautiful! His eyes just pop out in the picture. I love how happy he looks and healthy too!!! Happy New Year everyone!

  159. Jhen, glad you had fun. I’m spending my New years making Menudo.
    Families coming tomorrow morning to eat, Menudo is go for hangovers.

  160. janel, i can’t stop looking at the pic. It will be my 2nd fix everynight after watching NA, they are a must watch so i can sleep with the angels.

  161. mango says:

    All that and a perfectly ironed shirt. He is quite the little ironer.

  162. Bychance says:

    We are the luckiest fans ever! Thank you David and Kari! Thank you FOD! Happy New Year everyone!!!

  163. breanne says:

    OMHECK, I LOVE that pic of David with his Birthday Book and box of cards from all of us!!!! His glow has gotten glowery, if that is possible! Brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face. Thank you David and Kari!!! You two are so WONDERFUL!! <3

  164. Candy says:

    mango-I noticed that too, not a wrinkle or crease in the shirt. Perfectly ironed! Is there anything about him that isnt perfect. He glows, he sparkles, he shines, and ladies…he irons!! LOL

  165. HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE EVERYONE :) :) :)

    No need to take a sip of the bubbly…that pic alone of Elder Archuleta has made me giddy and yes, DRUNK WITH JOY!!!!!!! hahaha He is ONE BIG SMILE!!!!! The pic feels soooo personal…a heartfelt thank-you to each and everyone of his fans :) Kari’s answer about his future concerts was another doubt put to rest. What a great way to usher in 2013. BTW, the # 13 has always been considered a lucky number in sicilian folklore. When a child is born, it’s given a gold chain with a charm that has a 13 inscribed.

  166. kimk says:

    Candy rofl!!!

  167. kimk says:

    so David irons.. not the Sisters?
    yeah I did say that.

  168. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone!

    What a gorgeous pic of David, how sweet is that,
    sure made my year :grin: How can someone look
    so healthy & glowy & sparkley????? I think he
    truely appreciated all of the Christmas/Birthday
    cards/gifts, so sweet.

    Had dinner with my parents & played Monopoly,
    for the first time in years, made a bad deal with my
    Mom, lesson learned, wont do that again, she won :lol:
    Bankrupting your own daughter & husband, gosh Mom :roll:

  169. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Ironing never use to be his forte,lol. I dont think he had time the way he was constantly going from one thing to another :grin:

  170. sweetonda says:

    I want to take a moment and thank all the admins, writers and commenter’s here at FOD for all you do. You have kept us from going too crazy with DA gone. The articles, pictures, and post have been so appreciated.

    May the New Year bring health, happiness and blessings to all here.

    Happy New Year!

  171. Happy New Year, IDAMAE, BEATH, CANDY, KIMK, and anyone else that is still here.
    Yep!!! David made this NEW YEAR special for me too..What a face, eyes, glowy skin, just perfection. This fan ids one happy camper right now. :smile:

  172. sorry, getting tired eyes. Lots of mistakes.

  173. For the New Year I’m so looking forward to the Dougie tape that Kari spoke about and of course, that classic DVD, Nandito Ako… please, please,please cuz I can’t seem to get it out of my mind!!!! Even my hubby would lurk around pretending to be looking for something and trying to sneak a peek at my laptop screen hahaha

  176. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!! To the Mods, Commenters & Lurkers!!!!!!!!!

    Hey sweetonda, I second that :grin:

    Linda no problem, clear as crystal to us :grin:

    Hey idamae, would love a NA dvd!!!

  177. Candy says:

    Hey Ida- since I dont drink, so Im going to just be giddy with joy! No wonder the night sky is so bright this evening, its powered by a mega-watt smile all the way from South America!!

  178. Janel, David sounded and looked fantastic for the NYE performance. Amazing how he could sing in that weather…Thanks for the video :)

  179. OMG!!! Are you sure you want to know? It’s a soup you make on New years day, but you can eat it any day. Tripe, hominy, you garnish it with fresh cut onions fresh cilantro, oregano and squeeze lemon in it. You can add salsa if you want. eat it with crackers or corn tortillas. Mexicans breakfast of champions.

  180. Candy says:

    Hi Bethy-I too think part of the glow and smile was the joy he was feeling about being so loved by his loyal fans even while he is 8,000 miles away.

  181. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey Candy! Yup, I think it meant ALOT to him :grin: He could make a fortune, if he could bottle whatever he does to have a face like that, that skin. I think a part of it is that sweetheart of his shows on the outside :grin:

  182. Charlotte says:

    Hey all,
    Happy New Year to all my Archie family :) You all are the best.
    Thank you to those of you who wished me happy birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday to SGJ, too :) I had a great day with the fam and went to see Les Miz. Of course, I thought about David, especially during ‘Castle On A Cloud’. I could just picture little David in his room practicing that song with his sweet little voice. I bet he made his mama melt :) Saw someone post about Les Miz going back to Broadway in 2014. If it happens, tickets to see it would be a great welcome home present for David. I know that would take a lot of work, but it’s a thought and it’s something we know would mean a lot to him.
    Completely ADORING the new pic from Kari. I don’t know how he does it, but he get more beautiful every single time I see him and this pic is no exception. To put it simply, he’s all aglow and his eyes definitely pop right out of the page. So bright and twinkly :)
    Janel, thank you for the wonderful mission link you posted yesterday. David is a perfect angel all in white, but my mom would get on him about being out side with white socks and no shoes, LoL. Hope he has bleach for his white laundry. Also not surprised to see how much he’s excelling down there. He really does put 1000% into everything and it shows.
    Idamae, that’s interesting about 13 being lucky in some cultures. It’s been my lucky number since middle school and I hope 2013 will be lucky and blessed for all of us :)

  183. Candy, I’ve stared at that pic for some time. It’s like he’s communicating to us in some spiritual way…no words are necesary. I was thinking that he created this fandom of his, he nurtured it, he understands it and he’s looking after it for good, even though he’s miles away. I feel that we ARE in his future when he gets back :)

  184. dailylurker says:

    OMGoSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you DAVID and KARI!!!!!!

    David looks so beautiful! Tears of joy here. Happy New Years to everyone!

  185. mango says:

    His cute little thumbs-up felt like a blast from the past. Also, I was a little concerned that the change of climate and eating habits, etc., would be an issue with his perfect skin. But, it isn’t. It’s still porcelain smooth and beautiful.

  186. Linda, so that’s what it is. Maybe that’s the only way my hubby will eat tripe…with alot of Mexican garnishes. He used to call it an old dish rag sitting in that rich broth my aunt used to make, only it wasn’t spicy. It had potatoes in it as I remember.

  187. Candy, Beth, Idamae, I agree with all of you. He had a look of joy and happiness after receiving all the love from his fans, letting him know we are still waiting for him.

  188. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Hey Charlotte, Happy B-Day Charlotte,
    Goodnight Charlotte :grin:

    Once again, Happy New Year Everyone,
    wishing you all a Happy, Healthy New
    Year & May you & your families be Blessed :grin:

    Happy New Year to all of you!

  190. Goodnight Beth and to your fine feather boys. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Virtue HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU.

  191. Charlotte, a belated birthday to you. i plan to see Le Mis, too. It sounds so interesting how the musical numbers were done live…quite a challenge for the cast. I remember someone saying that David even imitated the cockney accents. He was and is somerthing else. About the #13, I think it has to do with the fact that there were 13 at the last supper and not just 12. I guess I grew up with the same idea as you :)

  192. Charlotte Hi! and Happy New yYear and Happy B-Day.
    Don’t remember if i wished you a happy B-Day yesterday?
    Isn.t he just too cute for words, your right i don’t know how he does it?

  193. Beth, sleep tight and all the best to you and yours esp, Lloyd, Floyd, Boyd and did I miss one ??? Oh, Mr SGJ haha. May all your skies be vast and blue…trying to follow the metaphor haha
    Your mom’s one cool chick :)

  194. Charlotte says:

    Beth, Happy New Year to you and our feathered friends, too :)

    Idamae, I remember hearing that about David imitating the accents, too. I could just see him as Gavroche when he was little and as Marius today. Hope he’ll get to see the movie and the Broadway revamp when he comes home :)

    Linda, Happy New Year to you, too, and I know right? He could seriously make a fortune bottling his skin secrets :)

  195. Happy New Year FOD! I think that one of my New Years Resolutions should be to re -watch all of the episodes of Nandito Ako! Love that minisieries, and especially love the leading man! Have a safe bringing in of 2013!

  196. To everyone responsible and affiliated with this wonderful David site, I want to thank you sincerely for all you do for David and his fans. I love coming to this oasis for all things David while he’s on his spiritual journey. I’m looking forward to the final lap to 2014. Wouldn’t miss this ride for anything!!!!!!!! God bless you all and Happy New Year!!!!!

  197. Kathy Happy New Years to you.
    To the Fod Mods and David team including Kari, where would we be without all of you?
    Love all of you guys especially David for bieng a great role model and singer with a giant heart. You have taught this old women how to be a better person.

  205. Jhen! we just have menudo at New years. Good for those who drink too much night before.
    Since i live in California i celebrate a lot of New years starting with Phils, East coast, etc.
    We still have 2 1/2 hours to go before New Years.
    Happy New years VA Beach, Nora, Is it New years where you live?

  206. nora says:

    Yes Linda it is New Years where I live, I live in MA. It is also very cold here. Hope you have a Happy New Year. It was a great end to 2013, just to see David and how happy he looks, just made my night.

  207. Nora! Doesn’t he look good and happy. I feel that he really needed this mission. I can hardly wait for him to come back.

  208. Anita says:

    What a stupendous surprise that David sent us a picture! That really made my night! He truly appreciates his fans. We are all so blessed, aren’t we?! Let’s all make 2013 that best it can be for each of us! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

  209. nora says:

    jhen, I totally agree with everything you said about being blessed, we sure are a lucky bunch of fans.

    Well is getting late so goodnight to all. Sweet dreams..

  210. nora says:

    Linda I agree I think he really need this mission so that he could get it behind him so he could concentrate on his career. He looks so happy and rested. Just love him and the person he is.

  211. Bychance says:

    jhen – that is quite the New Years spread! Sounds delicious and like you’ve been cooking all day. We have Chinese food every New Year…been doing that since our kids were little.

    Can’t get that glowy, sparkly, smiling face out of my mind…….why would I want to? We have had so many sweet surprises this Christmas season! What a sweet thing for him to do! Just can’t get over it!

    We got home from SLC today where we had a beautiful, snowy Christmas. While there I was going to visit an old friend, and kind of got lost driving around, had no idea where I was, when what do I come upon?……Murry High School!……got a little giddy over it!

    Bless you, David, for bringing a smile to my face when I least expect it. Happy 2013!

  212. Bychance says:

    Hi Nora, Anita, and Linda! Still waiting to ring in the new year here in MN. Hope it is a good one for us all! It sure has started off well, hasn’t it?!

  213. jackryan4da says:

    Happy New Year FOD! Here’s to a blessed, peaceful, healthy and productive 2013!

  214. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Happy New Year everyone…Hi to VaBeachArchie….jhen, Candy, LindaFromCali, nora, Candy, Idamae, Charlotte and Kathy/nearSeattle…..Been partying at our neighbor’s house…..I just have to say how blown away I was today watching the movie Les Miserables and thinking how David memorized all those songs word for word when he was six years old…..that’s two hours and forty-five minutes of songs…and not just songs…….but opera that he learned……OUR MAN IS GENIUS……I know people think David is sometimes childish and so young but this is often characteristic of children who are deemed strange or gifted beyond belief….GO DAVID…..Miss Vicki

  215. Bychance says:

    Miss Vickie – yes, he is amazing in so many ways.

    jackryan- Happy New Year to you as well, and thank you for all you do for us!

  216. Bychance says:

    Oh, I should never say hi and list names because then I realize I left out a bunch. Goodnight ALL!

  217. frio says:

    I would never close a door on that face. lol.
    https://twitter.com/DavidArchie/status/285888384268918787/photo/1
    Still staring at it :)

  218. Charlotte says:

    Happy New Year, Miss Vicki and ITA with what you said. David might seem odd at times, but prodigies and geniuses often are seen that way. Our David is definitely a prodigy and a genius :)
    Still hasn’t hit midnight here in CA, but we’re getting close. As of tomorrow(today for some of you) we can say that David will be home ‘next year’. And this time in 2013 we’ll be running around like crazy planning his homecoming. What a joyous time that will be :)

  219. Charlotte, i’m waiting too. another hour and a half and its 2013 in Cali.
    Goodnight By Chance. i bet you felt giddy when you passed by Murray High?

  220. ATX #DA2014 says:

    My favorite David moment of 2012? It happened tonight at 5:21 pm with that tweet from David via Kari and the spazzing afterwards!!! Trust the Archuleta!

    Happy New Year everyone!

  221. ATX, thats a great choice. Wasn’t it great? Happy New Year!!!!!

  222. Charlotte says:

    Twenty minutes to go on the west coast. Gonna go tune in to the NY ball drop. See you all in 2013 :)

    @FODFansofDavid @onedavidnet @kariontour nice to see @DavidArchie in Galaxie mag new year issue, It’s a good sign ;-) pic.twitter.com/QRRXnlzO

  224. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh. My. Goodness.
    This is the first picture david has sent us whilst on his mission…I can’t believe it!
    I love it! And he chose that Birthday book for the photo – so good and so right. So comforting to my heart.
    So…i presume it was his companion taking the photo. I bet his comp had a bit of a read of the messages.

    Thank you david for sending us this gift. Happy, happy. :-)
    And ahhh….looking forward to the tour! :-)

    Happy New Year peeps. What a lovely, hopeful way to begin 2013.
    Love, love, love, love….yes, I’m blissfully happy. :-)
    Love to all. :-) It’s been a wonderful first day of the year for me.

  225. Bobanna says:

    I want to wish each and every one of you a blessed New Year!! May “2013″ grant everyone health, love, happiness and prosperity! We all start the New Year with a clean slate so let’s use it wisely! A sincere thank-you to all our wonderful MODS for their continued efforts and hard work. You are deeply appreciated!! David and Kari gave us the best New Year gift ever today, and it makes me so happy to see David glowing. May he always be safe, guided and taken care of! Counting down till 2014! :-)

  226. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Aw David, thank you so much for thinking of us! Did you feel the love when you opened that box? I hope he realizes how one picture made so many happy! It takes a special individual like David to remind me there’s a lot of good out there in the world. Thank you David for being who you are. I am so blessed to be a fan of yours.

    Happiest of the New Year, guys! I too am rearing to follow him on his Begin.Again Tour! Now that we have a name – gotta set up the cities – of course all over Germany! :) Then we gotta…….. (sigh, no time to miss him – lots of planning to do)!
    Off to vote and pin pictures of my bebe!

    Hi Shanny, just noticed you were here a bit ago. Are you on pinterest?

  227. Shanny in Australia says:

    Looking at that picture….i am reminded of how david seems to always find it hard to believe that people love HIM. Like how he was surprised on the AI tour that he had fans and that it wasn’t just a bunch of AI fans, but they were actually HIS fans….and how he has spoken of how people are not genuine in the industry….and how on TOSOD he sings several times about people forgetting him……well David I hope that this little package, with 1400 notes of love, despite 9 months of absence, fills your heart with comfort and hope and happiness and helps you to understand that you truly are genuinely loved by many and that yes…..you have your very own fans who are here for YOU and YOUR music and not for any other fly-by-night, superficial reasons. Yes Mr David Archuleta….er…Elder Archuleta…YOU ARE LOVED. :-)

  228. Shanny in Australia says:

    I’m trying to catch up on all the wonderful comments but I keep getting distracted by that happy, happy gift of a pic.

    Hi Lct, no I’m not on pinterest.
    Hello to you too Bobanna. Thanks for your lovely sentiments. :-)

  229. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Hi too Bobanna! Yes, love your comment as well as Shanny’s. WE are blessed to find an artist we respect and a nice quality in that he can sing. That’s why I named my David board on pinterest: “Respected Artist”

  230. Shanny in Australia says:

    Lct…ahhh yes…’Respected Artist’.
    Want the whole world to know and love him because he deserves it, is worthy of it. <333

  231. jhen says:

    Linda- we just drink red wine, but not used to it, that’s why got some headache lol

  232. jhen says:

    By chance- I just cooked carbonara & make fruit salad, the rest my mom cooked lol. Glad u like asian foods. I like japanese, chinese , filipino dishes.

  233. jhen says:

    Nora- David is a few artist who is genuine. That’s why we fans are so blessed.

  234. Rapport says:

    I didn’t get a chance to wish everyone a happy, healthy, safe and trend-setting 2013 yesterday. To all the friends I have met here over the past year and to all those I will meet here in 2013 and beyond, I am truly blessed to be in your company.

    Hey, Jhen, was that spaghetti carbonara? It’s my favorite repast and no other pasta dish even comes close!

    That beautiful picture of David from Kari really shows off his “almond” eyes. Such a happy guy — as he should be.

  235. Rapport says:

    Oh, and to all the FOD personnel who dazzle us every day with unique, surprising, themed, boffo and serene posts, a big thank you for giving all of us a “waiting place”.

    Your dedication and devotion to David — and his growing legion of fans — makes the world a better place.

    Thank you, again!

  236. jhen says:

    Rapport- yes, spaghetti carbonara

  237. potluck8 says:
