I have a dream,
Go somewhere and beam.
Almost within my reach,
Yet only a lesson to teach.
Little did I know,
A place at the end of the rainbow,
Is a place not a dream,
But a place to be called home.
Helllloooo guuuys! Goodness! I so missed this! The reason for my hiatus is the absence of a computer. 😀 Still have got none, though. Thanks to my hubby’s old Ipad. 😀 I’ve been meaning to write about my moving to Japan but this Ipad has something. It crashes from time to time. Once, I tried to use this a week after coming here, golly, couldn’t finish a thing or two. I’ve figured out a way and I hope I can bring this post to an end in no time before this oldie starts to crash..haha.
So how’s everybody doing? Can’t wait to read your posts! I bet I miss a lot of things. Hope I could get a computer sooooon! *fingers crossed*
Anyway, you might be asking how I am in this foreign country. As you’ve read that short poem, notice that I claim Japan as my home now. Yeah, I did dream of going somewhere (Korea) to travel, not to have it as a home. Mysteriously, God worked on that. Remember how I missed my trip to Jeju, South Korea? Now I understand why it had to happen. It wasn’t the right time yet, because God prepared a place for me. Not just to travel to but to live in. The thing is, living here isn’t something that I brag about, rather I am proud of the decisions I have made that have led me to where I am now. It’s all about choices and God will do the rest. 😉
I’m quite elevated as to how my life will be living in a place where people speak a completely different language, have unfamiliar culture, unique food, views, and the like. Well, learning Japanese is proving quite a challenge. If I had to choose one, I’d definitely go for Korean. However, I’m thankful for having a pretty supportive better half. Besides, I look up to him knowing that he himself was once a Japanese learner and he impressively achieved the goal. Next thing to beat is the culture, for now this is not much of a problem since I stay at home most of the time. There’s less moment to experience being with the locals. I get the chance to see the outside world when the hubby takes me to places. Happy to say I’ve been to few places already which I’d love to share with you soon. Have tried going to the supermarket alone and yeah it was a little funny. 😀 From there, I’ve taken it to the next level..went somewhere by train. It was satisfying! Mind you, Japan’s railway system is cool and fairly complicated sometimes. 😀 Not to mention it’s really pricey.
Despite the said obstacles, living far off has a bright side. Say in Japan, its food is distinct and yet my mouth is the happiest. Another thing is I can explore its beauty. A lot of magnificent places out there for me to see and treasure. And the most important thing is, growing. There’s still room for me to improve myself as a person and now, as a wife. I believe I was brought here for a reason and that’s something I tend to discover one way or another.
Here’s me welcoming you all to the next chapter of the book of my life..
