  1. The Hudson Hotel is one of the top hot lobbies hotel in US. This place is so clean and spacious room hotel. I want to try again the Body Treatment here, it so relaxing..I can spend a time for vacation here again…

  2. When tomorrow turns in today, yesterday, and someday that no more important in your memory, we suddenly realize that we are pushed forward by time. This is not a train in still in which you may feel forward when another train goes by. It is the truth that we've all grown up. And we become different.

  3. We all live in the past. We take a minute to know someone, one hour to like someone, and one day to love someone, but the whole life to forget someone.
