Elvin Ng’s graduation trip with his fans

Elvin Ng spent his Sunday in a very special way – bringing 25 of his fan club members out for a day of fun at Universal Studios Singapore (USS). Their date, which lasted from 11 in the morning to 7 at night, was put together specially to thank them for their love and support for the past 10 years, which culminated in Elvin receiving the All-Time Favourite Award at the most recent Star Awards.

Speaking over the phone to Toggle after a long day of filming, Elvin chuckled, “They’ve been putting in so much effort for the past 10 years. I heard that they spend half a day on online voting – it’s just so much commitment so I’m just glad that they don’t have to do it anymore.”

When asked about why he picked USS as the venue for their celebration, the actor let on, “They actually wanted a road trip – we were thinking of going up to Melaka but that would take much more time and logistics (…) It was between a road trip to Melaka and a boat trip to Batam or Bintan. We wanted to go across the sea and experience something different this time.”

Plans to travel overseas, however, fell through as Elvin mused that transport arrangements and unfamiliar environment were just some of the considerations that caused him to decide on going to the theme park instead.

Chuckling that he first asked his fan club president to extend the invite to all members, Elvin revealed that he kept the fact that he would be paying for the admission tickets a secret from all of them until the day itself.

Chalking up a cool S$2,100 bill for the day (S$1,600 on admission tickets and S$500 on lunch), he continued that the fans ended up deciding to pay for express passes for the entire group of them so that they would be able to skip the queue and go on more rides while they were at the park.

If you’ve looked closely enough, there’s also been the addition of a certain hashtag on both Elvin and Elvinology’s posts: #拥有你我们也拥有全世界, which is loosely translated to #HavingYouIsJustLikeHavingTheEntireWorld. Elvin explained, “It’s part of a recent song (Jay Chou’s ‘Confession Balloon’), which they sang to me after the recent Star Awards after I got my All-Time Favourite Award and I remember this line in particular, and they really do mean the world to me.”

As for the fans who couldn’t make it, Elvin shared that it’s unlikely that a similar gathering will take place in the near future. “It’s not something that can happen all the time. I think it’s more about quality than quantity and let’s say I take them out every other day, every week, or every month, it won’t be that special anymore,” he explained.

(Continued on next slide: What does Elvin have to say to fans who are no longer as active as they were before?)

However, that doesn’t mean that he has no love for those who didn’t manage to make it, or fans who are no longer as active as before. “Everyone has played their part – I’m always grateful to my fans, even if they didn’t stay with me throughout the 12 years. I’m glad that there was new blood when others left. While they may not be part of Elvinology any longer, I just want them to know that I miss them,” he confessed.

Elvin continued, “They appear for every event; pick me up and send me off at the airport all the time (…) I’d say that they’re all grown up now and it’s no point comparing past and present. I just want to thank them for all their support throughout the years, and hope that we’ll be able to be together for another 10 more years, at the very least.“
