Nice to meet all of you! 😰🤩 *super nervous and excited*

Had a fun introduction and everyone was curious about Dubai! I talked a lot about my experiences and how living in Dubai was for me. I’ve mentioned a lot of negative things as living there isn’t too easy than it looks. Of course I’ve mentioned about the good things too! For example, food is good, it’s a safe country, things aren’t too expensive and so on. So I suggested everyone to travel there at least once in their lives.

I asked everyone how to survive during winter as I’m new to winter and got some good tips! Also heard some of the good hot springs are in Gifu and Nagano. Do you all think so too?

In the second hour, we had some Christmas riddles!! ☃️🎅🎄🧝‍♀️
In the beginning it was diffcult to get used to it, but after 5 riddles or so, everyone has some good guesses and we started to enjoy them. There were some clever play on riddles too!

For example;
– What do elves learn at school?
The elf-abet!
– What do you call an old snowman?

There were anymore~ So much fun! I really wanna come back and talk with you all again! Thank you for an awesome Saturday!

Hope to see you all soon~ ☃️
