Twilight Coverage in Tokyo: Day 1
Sorry for the late update. This post will have the contents of what we did in Day 1 at Tokyo.
We arrived yesterday at 5.30pm [Tokyo Time]. We were jet-lagged and tired. AND GUESS WHAT??!!!
We saw TAYLOR LAUTNER!!!! We were filling up our address for our stay in Tokyo and when we turned around, Maria thought the boy in front of us looked familiar. “Isn’t that Taylor?”, Maria asked. And for sure yes, it was definitely Mr. Lautner himself. He is tall and was wearing a black leather jacket with black jeans. He was much more fairer than we expected. His hair was like those pictures from VF.
He was queuing at the immigration line together with some people. [We later found out it was a representative from Summit and we think the other was his Dad.] Maria went up to him and this how the conversation went.
Maria: “Hi, Taylor.”
Taylor turns and looks at us. He smiles. He has the MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE EVER with lovely teeth. Haiz…
Maria continues. “Welcome to Japan! I thought you were coming tomorrow?”
Taylor answered. “No… Not tomorrow.”
There were more words that Maria said but we can’t remember them. [SORRY] Those were the only words that we heard from him. After that we joined the immigration line. So Taylor was in front of us with the people that were queuing in between us. Since it was an immigration line, the queue was looong. The line went zig-zagged. So we managed to pass by him about 5 times. Every time we passed him he either looked up or he was talking to his dad. We felt very awkward and ‘paiseh‘ (embarrassed).. HEEESS..
We didn’t manage to take photos with him or ask for an autograph because we did not want to draw attention to him. And we think that its not allowed in the immigration line. Good thing we maintained professionalism as it took a lot of will power to suppress ‘THE FAN GIRL’ in us. HAHA.
From there, we went through the immigration checks and we saw people who were receiving Taylor and his party. They helped him with his luggage and all. We collected our luggage and went down to catch an Airport Limousine (which is actually a bus) to meet our friend in town who has kindly accomodated us during this trip. The journey took about 2 hours.
We headed to Roppongi Hills to meet our friend, Evelyn, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. While waiting in the lobby… YOU GUYS KNOW WHO WE SAW??!!!
No.. not Leo… And not Matt either. HEHEHE…. Its the guy in the middle. That’s the Oscar-winning legendary director, Mr. Martin Scorsese! He has directed Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Gangs of New York, The Aviator and most recently The Departed.
Me and Maria were sitting around in the lobby (by the way, the lobby was DAMN NICE..) when Maria noticed him. “Isn’t that Martin Scorsese?” Mr. Scorsese was wearing a black overcoat and he was shaking hands with a couple of people who were waiting for him at the lobby. Then he walked towards the taxi stand where a limo was waiting for him. He walked past us and we waved while Maria said “Hello!” to him. He smiled and he waved back at us too! It was a brief encounter and we didn’t want to bother him so we did not take a photo, but it was well-worth it since he noticed us.
Thing is, I’ve realized I have managed to see more Hollywood stars right here in Tokyo than the other times that I have been to America. ITS PRETTY EXCITING!!!
Tune in back to this site in a couple of hours as we blog about our second day: THE ARRIVAL OF MR. PATTINSON.
AISHAH & MARIA.
