Little Sopha [9] a Cambodian blogger, posted her wish for winning tickets in the SME lottery and lamented that she like 8 million other Cambodian fans would watch the concert on television (CTN – Cambodian Television Network).  However, Sopha was lucky enough to get the above photo:

"In the afternoon one of the group members and a friend of his made a quick visit to Russian Market, and that is where a miraculous event occurred. My cousin gave me a call telling about their unexpected presence, I then also had a wonderful chance to have photos with them… It was just so nice,  I really can't describe how happy I was at that moment… Hmmm, if only had the three of them been there together… :D … Well, still it was just like a WONDERFUL DREAM COMES TRUE!"
