Congratulations, FHM Nation, we've survived Typhoon One Direction–well, the first day, at least.
For almost a whole day, the SM Mall Of Asia Open Grounds was filled with thousands of frantic Directioners dying to see the popular British boyband in the flesh for their first-ever live show here in the country. It was the biggest gathering of fangirls (young, teen, nagpapaka-teen, hindi-na-teen, old) we've ever seen in one venue.
We all know the benefits of being punctual. You get better seats/standing room, for one. But 1D's Pinoy fans totally destroyed our concept of "being early." What, you kids were there FOURTEEN HOURS BEFORE THE SHOW? WTH!
The popular group, who was missing member Zayn Malik due to stress, arrived in the county yesterday around two in the afternoon. And yes, social media went haywire with 1D-related posts:
After a whole day of camping, Pinay Directioners finally got their once in a lifetime makalaglag-panty experience when the boys took the stage around 8 p.m.
That's when things got really cray-cray:

Okay, maybe it worked. Apparently, the boys told the fans that Zayn might join the group for tomorrow's show.

Girls also went gaga for this crappy photo:
Amidst all the craziness, the Pinay Directioners somewhat kept their composure and found the inner strength to not mob the boys. Judging from the posts on social media, the show was a great success. A lot of ladies are having trouble sleeping tonight.

While 1D fans who couldn't attend the concert and failed to find a livestream link are now getting close to insanity:
Lastly, if you know this man, tell him to hide himself quick. An army of jealous Directioners are apparently looking for him:
