Hi hi sisters .... I'd like to move onto a lighter topic before going back to the Osaka Event. You read the princess blogged about that some people thought his clothes at the NHK interview being too somber. Maybe it's just me, how come I also have this impression that he is always wearing the same jacket, T-shirts, jeans and boots in this trip? In my own ignorant ways, I can only conclude the followings :
1. HRH must have lost his luggage on the way to Osaka, that's why he still has the same outfit that he arrived at Kansai on his back! (don't smack me, just kidding :)
2. I blame it on those ridiculous airline restriction on luggage weight. Just that darn Damdeok armour alone has already gone over the 50 lbs weight limit! What? They expect HRH to wear his birthday suit on stage?? (hehe, actually I don't mind at all @@)
3. Ms Hong & team must have been blinded by the beauty of HRH and can't tell one color from the next. That's why he's always wearing black - greyish black, brownish black, light black, medium black, dark black .......
Now if you don't believe me, please take a look at the contrast of his wardrobe during his Saitama trip in Aug 2005, can you see the big difference?

And how can we not love his cool & sexy look in fedora :)
Seriously, I do see a change in HRH's demeanor and appearance in this trip. He looks extremely relaxed and very confident in every occasion. As he said it himself, he is very comfortable in front of his family and feels like this is coming home. I think at this stage in his life, he wants to show us more of his natural self. He wants us to look beyond the fancy clothing, to see his works and hear his words. He trusts that we will love and support him no matter what he wears. Hehe HRH, you know us so well, we have already fallen under your spell :)
