My report:
Melanie and I arrived at the pre-meeting at 2:00 PM. Although there was many fans there, everyone was in separate groups, therefore we had difficulty finding everyone. Eventually, a large group was formed, and Melanie and I walked towards it. Some fans recognized me, and said “you must be Amanda!”, and introduced themselves to me. I asked everyone whether they had something to contribute to the gift bag, and Melanie contributed a book by one of her favorite authors, then Diana contributed her Spanish CD for Lena!!! Shortly after, Lena arrived in a silver car, which Diana recognized and told everyone “she’s here!”. She was wearing a medium-length navy-blue dress, high heels, head band and sunglasses. She was even more beautiful in person than in photos and videos. I walked towards her and presented her with the bouquet of flowers. I said, “Lena, these flowers are for you, I know that lilies are your favorite.” She smiled, and held the bouquet of flowers, and posed for a picture. As I was very nervous, I began to speak to her more, saying “my name is Amanda. I am a friend of Sergey and Svetka.”

Sadly, Liz's comparison may not be inaccurate. It's seems like t.A.T.u.'s pending projects have all been screwed up. :(

i think the international version of "happy smiles" will be like the guns n' roses album "chinese democracy"...it will probably be released in 2024.

as for you and i, i couldn't care less anymore!

however, i'm excited for lena's solo work!

Nichya, Lena said that they hope to release the international version of “Happy Smiles”, but there is no release date yet. And she said that the release of “You And I” is dependent on the production company RAMCO. There is no new information on t.A.T.u., but if there was, it would have been posted on the official website prior to the fan meeting.

Nichya, I divided the fan meeting content into three entries: photos, videos, and my experience. The second entry is for video and includes the Q&A part of the fan meeting.
