Today was one hell of a day, oooppss that’s not a good way to start a post, but that’s how my day was today. It was craaaazy!
Instead of focusing on how crazy this day was for me, let’s focus on the beautiful side of the day. While I was on my way to the station (about 11:05 a.m) I came across these cute Japanese children walking the streets, it’s not the first time I got to see this kind of scene, we usually see them on the other side of the road, on the corner of the street, but only today did I have a chance to get this close to them. Then I waved. Out of nowhere. I whispered hi and smile. I wasn’t expecting to be noticed. I know I look like a local (Japanese people generally like “Gaikokujin.”) so I am not that appealing to children – I’m not blond even or anything lol. But to my surprise, this little girl heard me and waved back!
My heart skipped.
And that’s how I left the our Mother Earth. Nah just kidding.
Seeing these children innocently walking on the streets, with or without an adult accompanying them (it’s normal – they also have their variety show “My Fist Errand” in Japan“) never fails to amaze me and makes me imagine my future kids. Am I gonna be this confident in sending them places at a young age? Is it going to be this safe in the Philippines in the near future? And these thoughts added weigh to my undying admiration to Japan. The culture, the people, EVERYTHING.
I just hope that in the future, my country would be this safe for the future generations. We never know, but I won’t stop believing.
I hope these pictures and video clips I attached will make your day too and leave a smile on your faces. Let’s forget all the worries and bad vibes we had for the day. Let’s be like these children again and only worry on how to ask for candies or how to fic a broken toy we have. Let’s spread the love kahit inalis na sa Pinas ang salitang yan. Haha.
