Hello everyone! I am here to talk about the thats was so called “The land of the rising sun” Japan. I have so much to share and tell stories to you in my experience in Japan. In my first visit in Japan I notice that the Japanese people are very polite and busy. The things I can describe them is that they are very modern, very updated, they work to fast and very convenient.

Presidential Elections

As we all know, the Presidential elections are just five months away, and the candidates are doing their best in order to win the majority of the country’s favor. Recently, they have been given a Social Weathers Stations Pre-election survey. The survey shows a prediction on who may win the election, and here are the results.

The top 4 candidates are Vice President Jejomar Binay, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, Senator Grace Poe, and Mar Roxas. President Benigno Aquino’s successor, Roxas, ranked fourth in the survey gathering 15%. Grace Poe tied with Jejomar Binay at second place hoping that more people will support her even though she’s supposedly disqualified. Duterte is in first place in the survey gathering 38% of the population. So as you can see, based on the results, Duterte is most likely to win the election, but you never know. There are still five months left until the real election begins, and there” still enough time to gather more votes.

“I was lost”

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.”

After all those connecting flights and check-in counters, I finally landed in New York City. It was 6:00 in the evening, the winds were howling, the fragrance of scrumptious pizza and hotdogs were in the air, and I was exhausted. I got on a cab and I finally reached my destination. THE MARRIOTT HOTEL (lexington avenue). It’s magical entrance got me so much more excited than I expected. I ran into my room after the check-in, and I fell right on my bed. Jet-lagged, tired, and hungry, I called for room service. Being a five star hotel, they had the best food ever. But I thought to myself, “why am I calling room service when I can go out of the hotel, explore, and eat the best that NYC has to offer. I took my coat and left the hotel looking like a lost girl since it was my first time there. The seven year old me just stared at the gigantic buildings and all the different people in that city. It felt like it was a dream come true because all I dreamt of when I was younger, was to see the world. That was the beginning of my journey until……..I realized….. “I WAS LOST “
