Hahaha, I am so late I just read about this today and I have no idea what’s the status on this case. Before I continue, I am a huge fan of Gackt (like Vanilla is an obligatory song for me to listen everyday and all i do all that weird fangirly stuff all the tiiimeee).
But late or not on me knowing about this, I just have to tell you fans please do not be blinded! I can’t stand seeing all these comments saying “oh but he is not a bad man!” and “oh, he is taking care of his family!” and other balony bogus crap I read. Because, dear fellow Dears:
1. Evading tax is just as bad as stealing money. Wait, because IT IS stealing money. + collecting “black money” is certainly not a good thing D:
2. Part of the money that went missing was charity money for the Sendai Earthquake that was collected from fans. He took effin charity money to spend it mindlessly!
3. I know, I know, he said he never wanted any children but to actually not acknowledging the child and sending both the kid and the mom overseas is a bit… whoa. I know that fans might attack the girlfriend if this went public, but really? Gackt’s fans aren’t that much more violent than any other big jrock stars like Hyde or Yoshiki or Miyavi and so on so on who else…. they managed! If he dumped them in Canada, God he’s just keeping up appearances.
Okay, since I am late on this issue…, I apologize if all this turned out to be untrue and this issue was just made up by some bored tabloid editors. But please, when you fangirl on somebody… Don’t be so biased people!
Excuse my english, can’t think anymore.
oh, it’s untrue. glad to hear TwT
i apologize for my ranting u.u

Alright, now let’s talk about some cigarettes. Just because haha. I thought I should promote a bit of these stuff.
Aaaand, I am just going to type this out in an unacademic way. Too. tired.
So, The tradition of smoking and the works of blending cigarettes in Indonesia can be traced since very, oh so very long time ago, and personally I think that Indonesian cigarettes are one of the best cigarettes out there.
The most typical and common Indonesian tobacco blend called Kretek, is the one where they add cloves into it giving a very unique sweet taste when you smoke it. It’s almost like smoking and sucking on some candy at the same time. These are actually lighter than Marlboro tobacco, but that makes the sweet taste… more tasteful, I guess.
Haha…, even recently Dunhill has even released it’s clove added tobacco cigarettes, too. And if I’m not wrong, Brad Pitt is addicted to these indonesian ciggs (I don’t know if that’s even important but I’m just adding this to fill in more stuff).
I would personally say that the taste is good, but perhaps living in this country made me take it for granted so it’s not that special for me. But I find it really hard to smoke other cigarettes, because once you get used to these clove cigarettes, other cigarettes would become tasteless, weird, and dry to your mouth. Somehow, that’s the case for me. And that’s maybe why I say that they’re the best.
Try them out, there are so many brands you can check out!
-Sampoerna Mild : also comes in menthol. best!
-Djarum : this brand has a popular trademark, called Djarum Black. the filter is black, looks sort of cool and the taste is sweeter than the sampoerna. Some people say it’s a bit nauseating but it’s actually quite fine. They also have the L.A. Milds which tastes like the sampoerna, but not as sweet.
-Gudang Garam : Super strong, takes very long time to finish, but very nice!
-234 (Dji Sam Soe) : I think this one is the strongest, and the one with the best taste.
There are many more, but the ones above are the most popular and biggest brands.
