    How about....

    5 hours drive to KL (almost run out of petrol on highway),
    then 4 hours squeeze with crazy fans but in the end the autograph session was cancelled as the fans was getting too violent....
    then 5 hours drive back to Singapore (reached home at 4am)
    then few hours later set off to JB again for another autograph session
    waited for 5 hours and squeezed with fans under heavy rain + lighting WITHOUT umberlla until underwear also soaked with water (thanks to my minitrekker AW, it is the only thing that is completely dry)

    in the end manage to take some good shots of S.H.E. but missed the last bus back to singapore...reach home at 3am in the end

    I've seen:

    - a guy climbing a ladder to get above everybody else
    - the same guy using his girlfriend's head to stablise his camera
    - the same guy letting his girlfriend carry the ladder as he went nearer to the stage
    - another guy jumping up on the stage to get the shots





    For me... took half day leave and went to borrow a 70-200VR for shooting SHE on a friday, squeezed with the crowd, stood there for 4 hours plus and took the shots. And best, I did it with Wai.

    Haha,

    Think photographers are a crazy bunch!

    Me and my dear friend pretend to pose for each other while we try to shoot the person behind us so that she won't suspect.

    And I saw my friend crawl on the floor before.

    For myself, I had climb on railings before, chase a squirrel like a mad man, hide behind a pillar to take a couple kissing etc.

    Not too adventurous yet, newbie mah.
