GACKT Official Blog update. Translation below:
The tequila festival from a few days back
felt like it never happened when I woke up to a quiet morning.
Or so I thought…
Just then, angry, persistent waves of morning calls came from my secretary.
“Waka!! Hurry up and wake up. Before you go overseas you have a meeting!!”
Did I slip in such a meeting…
I wondered, half-asleep while rushing to get ready.
After getting prepared and going to the lobby, my solemn faced secretary said this.
“Well… The guest has arrived…
They said they wanted to meet Waka. Can I call them in?”
I somehow got a bad feeling about this,
so although I normally don’t reject people, I immediately rejected them.
“Argh… Let’s not today… I don’t feel so good”
despite that I gave a rejection, my secretary shouted
“Please come in~~!”
Just as I thought “What the hell is going??”,
a bunch of people dressed weirdly came out one after another.
“Happy birthday to
When I looked at the figures who came up from the room, I was dumbfounded.
“What the hell are you guys doing?”
I said, and
“We’ve been waiting the entire morning dressed like this!!”
Then, an ubelievable though occured and decided to just ask them.
“Eh?? Could it be that you’re going to the airport like this??”
“If we do something like that we’ll get arrested!!
Won’t it make headlines with, ‘GACKT’s Staff Arrested at the Airport’!”
No way no way,
I don’t think you’ll get arrested for wearing a Chinese dress to the airport.
That falls under your personal preference.
Even if a man is wearing it…
And, also even if it doesn’t suit you.
my staff gave me a present and I immediately opened it up to have a look.
“Wine opener?? I think…”
I asked them, and apparently it isn’t that.
It seems to be something that allows you to drink all wines without removing the cork,
and is capable of keeping it fresh.
Anyway, I gave it a try.
I got a bottle of Opus One out and drank it in the morning.
With the grapes, having wine in the morning isn’t too bad either.
It somehow feels luxurious.
I drank half the bottle.
If I leave this and the flavour is still alright a month later that would be amazing…
If the flavour turns out to be perfectly fine, maybe I should have a GACKT wine bar too…
I was dealing with Hong Kong until the last minute and
when I didn’t have any more time to spare, I headed to the airport.
Being slightly drunk feels good.
Upon arriving at Haneda, I headed straight for the departure gate
Boarding time has already passed.
So it’s United this time.
That United, again…
I wonder what’s going to happen.
This time, it’ll be another long trip.
I’ll take it slow.
Alright then, I’m off.
