I am not fond of following Japanese politics let alone Australian ha ha ha But, I kind of want to upload their new cabinet line-up.
And, I wonder how long will he last and what kind of contributions and changes will he make to this super country? :D
Just came in on today, a picture of when Naoto Kan officially leaves his office on Friday. He was given a flower bouquet, don't you think he looks really happy as if he won a Lotto? ha ha ha .... This is maybe his happiest face during his office years. LOL
Awww... I wish you good luck in your future endeavours, Mr.Kan.
