These are my moments …
I’m in a foreign land. I’m originally from the Philippines, and arrived to United States about 10 years ago. Now I’m here in Japan for work, and this is a whole new world for me.They drive on the left side of the road. That trips the bejeebers out of me. There’s a massage chair but it’s not doing what I wanted it to do. I’m afraid that if I press something, it will eject me to the roof. I don’t know what in the universe I’m buying. We played the arcade drums without completely understand how to follow the instructions. I think I lost twice in a row. Their letters are alien to me. I’m lost in translation here….
….And I absolutely love it! These are my moments. I’m not going to hesitate. I’m going to indulge. I won’t allow myself to feel any guilt or remorse. I’m going to explore. I’m not going to just let this slip through my fingers. I’m taking every opportunity I can. I’m not going to regret being left behind. No, not again, not this time. These are my moments. I’m going to be pushy. I’ll take the risks. I’ll squeeze my time for any travel plans, be salivated for any kind of adventure, and savor these enjoyable moments.
I don’t know what they put on my plate but I’ll eat it. The language will not be a barrier. I’ll separate my long hours of work and make good use of my short liberty time. This new culture I’m in, I will embrace wholeheartedly.
This Land of the Rising Sun will be my Land of Milk and Honey for another 5 months or so.
Mihama American Village is a proof of influence and the good relations they have with the Western and the whole United Nations despite its unlikely history. It centers not only American restaurants and stores but of various European and other Asian cuisines and products as well.
