at the background is HACHIKO 
SHIBUYA is also known as the station of Hachiko (Japanese Akita Breed Dog). The movie starring Richard Gere, the movie made me cry. The Hachiko exit of Shibuya station is a popular meeting spot for people of all ages. Most people hooking up for a day in the city choose this cute little dog statue as a place to find each other.

SHIBUYA is one of the most photographed areas in Tokyo. This is the station on the Yamanote Line, which is the Line of the hotel where we stay in. Dai-ichi Tokyo (platform number 5). The young bustling district of Shibuya is one of the busiest places -- where many young people meet -- it is also the center of fashion, entertainment and recreation especially for the YUPPIES

Actually i don't know them, i am just trying to blend
in with the crowd heheheh 
not my friends, just sitting with the japanese
pretending to be listening to their conversation

Week in the Life 2012 - Thursday

Anika started Kindermusik when she was 2 weeks old.  She is now 4 years old and still enjoys the lesson with Teacher Bedi Casilihan. When she was a baby, i  rocked and swing her, put her to sleep with the lullabies and CD given every lesson. She has developed her love for music.   She moves and dances to music and plays simple instruments.

Her kindermusik lesson is HOME SERVICE. Teacher Bedi goes to our house every thursday for a 40 minute lesson. week in the life 2012 week in the life 2012

after her kindermusik, we went to watch barney.
The popular violet dinosaur Barney and the rest of the gang is here in Manila to do a live musical show on stage entitled "Barney's Space Adventures".
Barney sang and danced at the Aliw Theater we watched last night April 26.
I was excited for this show because my Anika loves Barney and I still can't believe that my children watched barney since my eldest son's time and that was 14 years ago.
