Our journey continues and our lives are exposed to certain changes.

Tonight, we live in a fast-changing and ever-challenging world – a world filled with opportunities, passion, chaos, life demands, survival, competition and the like. And I can't help but wonder "What would the future bring to my generation? Can anyone tell me what will happen in the next 10 years or so?" These questions kept recurring in my head. Perhaps a glimpse of the future would sacrifice my feelings of uncertainty.

After an exhausting coverage of the World Peace talks, I decided to take a leave from my position as CNN International Correspondent. I wanted to take some well-earned rest after chasing diplomats in the summit.

I took a plane and began my journey back to the school where I graduated from 15 years ago… before boarding the plane to Philippines, I noticed a familiar looking guy approaching me. I could not believe that it was JULIUS NICOLE GALVEZ. He told me that he works as the manager of the USA Jet Airways.

JANMAR VIJANDRE was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for formulating a super durable material now used in safety helmet. On the next page was an article about the robbery at Fort Knox. US Treasury Head PRINCESS DIZON announced to the press that everything is under control and that the FBI is already tracking down the suspects. SHAUN CAYZLE DELA CRUZ won elections as the new governor of Saipan. Miss Universe IVY JOY INONCILLO, Miss World KELLY NESS SOLIVEN, and Miss International ROSETTE SAMANIEGO just got back from Sahara region in Africa after their successful feeding program.
