Once again I’m Tracy Francis.
I love dancing. I started dancing when I was in elementary school. I used to dance with my twin sister and we joined a lot of competitions in the Philippines. I’m good at Hip-hop dance and wacky dance. I was also a dance instructor back in the Philippines. I taught cheer dance and Hip-hop dance in University of Baguio. My twin sister and I have performed a dance in a TV show in the Philippines called NAIMBAG NGA MORNING KAPAMILYA.
I am so thrilled to have a chance to teach dance & English at Planet Kids / Academy. I am happy to teach Hip Hop in English to both adults and children.
Introducing our new English instructor.
Name: Tracy Francis
Here’s her initial message:
My name is Tracy Francis. I’m from Philippines and I grew up in Baguio City. Baguio name as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” is one of the cleanest and greenest cities in the country. Baguio is one of the most visited tourist destination in Asia. Situated in the mountains of the Cordillera Region. Baguio is the place where you will enjoy the cool climate all year round. Baguio is made for sightseeing because of the attractive and lovely scenic views and a number of magnificent tourist attractions. Baguio is a perfect place to unwind yourself and is a perfect mountain retreat.
In the Philippines we have a different Language per city but the two most common languages were Tagalog and English.
In Japan I’d like to visit many famous places. I’ve noticed that the people here are kind and helpful, so I feel like I’m home even though I’m far away from my city. Also, the weather is the same.
I love dancing and teaching.
In spring, hay fever or pollen allergy is very common. It’s ‘kafunsho’ in Japanese. Excessive sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose or a scratchy throat are some of the common symptoms. Everyone may experience and suffer from this allergy caused by Japanese cedar pollen or sugi tree.
To survive this dreadful experience, look and read down below some ways to survive the allergy.
1. Wear a mask to help prevent inhalation of pollen.
2. Use face spray to prevent fine particles from entering nose and eyes.
3. Use eye drops to rinse pollen and dirt from the eyes.
4. Use nasal spray up to three times a day depends on the type and dosage.
5. Take antihistamines. Consult ENT for the best method of treatment.
6. Invest on a good air filter not only to add moisture but also to remove pollen, dust and smell in the room.
7. Never be short of tissue paper for runny nose..
8. Boost immune system by taking probiotics for fast recovery.
9. Wipe floors with a damp mop, a vacuum cleaner will spread the pollen only.
10. Check pollen forecast at all times, too.
Spring season has just started. It’s means a new beginning.
In Japan, cherry blossoms are popular in spring. For Japanese people the blooming of cherry blossom trees symbolizes human life, transience and nobleness.

To indulge in picnics beneath the blooming cherry blossom trees and enjoy hanami, here’s the forecast for this year. The best spots to see them are included as well. Let’s all enjoy the week-long beauty of the cherry blossom trees.
It’s Yuletide season again. It means Christmas time and wintertime. It’s a season of joy and and a season of giving. Each country has its own culture in celebrating this season.
