My Host Family and I
 Dai Urakawa ‐ NWU exchange student at the University of Baguio

 I came to here two months ago. I spend most of my time with the Fernandez family, who is my host family. There are five members in my family. Daddy Jun, Mommy Charmaine, Caila, Ejay and Josha. Daddy Jun, and Mommie Charmaine are both dentists. Ejay, who was once an exchange student at Nagasaki Wesleyan University, is a dentistry student. They once hosted Shinya Yasunaga, who was an exchange student like me. I spend most of my time with my host family.
 In Japan, when we arrive at home, we say “tadaima” and whoever is at home replies “okaeri”. In the Philippines, like my family, when children arrive at home, they do the “mano” also termed as “bless”. They say “mano po” or “bless po”. Children hold the right hand of their parents or elders and put them on their forehead. It is a gesture for respect. I do it every time I arrive at home.
 My favorite Filipino food is adobo, which is made by mommie. It is chicken or pork cooked in garlic, vinegar and soy sauce. I can’t eat “sinigang” . It is a kind of sour soup with pork or fish and vegetables. When our dinner is “sinigang”, my mommie cooks another dish for me. I am thankful for that.
 Because I brought nori from Japan, my host family thought I could make sushi. We went out to buy ingredients for sushi. I tried to make it and it was so delicious. I was so relieved because I never made sushi before.
 In the Philippines, every Sunday is family day. I and my host family go to church on Sundays. On the first Sunday of each month, we go to their grandfather’s house (Daddy Jun’s father), to have Bible study, which is difficult for me to understand. After the Bible study, we talk and eat. My host family always pray before meals. I also lead the prayers when it is my turn.
 My host family is a basketball fan. They like the NBA team Golden State Warriors. We almost watch basketball every day. Like me, my host brother plays basketball. Every time I go to a basketball court, I can make new friends and enjoy playing basketball.
 The 18th birthday of Filipinas is called “debut”. It is an important age for Filipina women. There is usually a big party to celebrate the birthday. I attended a debut party at Subic, which is about 5 hours away from Baguio City. There were many friends and relatives who came to the party. I was having a good time when my host father surprisingly asked me to sing. I sang “Night Changes” by One Direction. I was so nervous but it was fun. I also did a lot of shopping at Subic.
 My host family is very nice, kind and sometimes entertaining. I don’t know how to explain it but I am sure I love them.
