Auckland’s eerie sky

Auckland is a nice place. Sometimes breezy, sometimes warm. Sometimes rainy, sometimes sunny. It’s always a natural place, whether you like it or not. But today, at around 2:00 PM, the sky wasn’t natural AT ALL. It was an orange colour usually in zombie apocalypse video games and movies. It looked…..weird. It struck me that […]

Hanglaatherium

A couple of days ago, we went to have lunch out. We went to a popular restaurant in our area, named Hanglaatherium (Hangla, for short). The place had a great atmosphere, and I realized that immediately. Looking at the painted wall of the building, I realized that this was more than food. It was great […]

India #4: Street Shopping

In India, street shopping is one of the most common things people do. There are stores pretty much everywhere, and people blare their horns to get to the right place on the car. I didn’t mention, though, that some of the stalls aren’t very nice (for example, those that sell meat on the street markets). […]

India #1: Scenic drive, and a peek at a traditional event

I arrived in India yesterday night. After leaving Singapore, we went on a flight with Singapore Airlines to Calcutta. We met my grandparents at Calcutta Airport. The driver, who took us to their home, chose a quite scenic way to get to the building. It was midnight, which was an advantage. The light decor was […]

(Wow, the same sentence starter used three times now) My father loves to sing. He uses karaoke on YouTube and sings away. He usually sings cultural Indian songs and is interested in us making a music/travel/cooking YouTube channel. He also sings songs on karaoke when there is a new version of the song (remix), and […]

Fitness Freaks

My dad would watch YouTube videos on Bowflex, a fitness webpage, and do the exercises the people in the video show you. He started using Bowflex about a month ago. He also has some of their dumbbell […]

Artiste Critique 👌🏻

The last few centuries have introduced many artists, including Van Gogh, Picasso, Salvador Dali, Leonardo Da Vinci, and so on. We students spent this semester studying about different artists, listed above. We, as only 4-5th graders, know these people surprisingly well. I would probably even say the book “When Pigasso met Mootisse” taught us about […]
