Comical reaction

Tonight, we created a video of a book called “Tintin: The Blue Lotus”. This was an especially hard video to make. I was about to give up. However, I was motivated to get it right. I mean, who gets annoyed because they can’t make a decent voice recording (everyone), but seriously! I had to do […]

I have never visited a science museum before (there is probably none of this nature in entire New Zealand!) and that is why the experience was so great. LEVEL […]

Rolls are a common delight for the Bengal citizens, since it’s what they are famous for. We had rolls for a light snack earlier today, and they were great! The onions, chili flakes, […]

Last night, my grandfather starred in two movies. Not really, but he did two theater stage performances. The first one, had him as a lawyer. People came asking him for money to create something, and he kept kicking them out. At the end, somebody came to give him his money back. The guy made my […]

India #5: Stories, studies, stuff

In India, as well as Auckland, my mother uses a social media app to share what’s going on in your life. She doesn’t post regularly, but she checks out her feed every day, to find quotes and stories. People write inspiring quotes about books, movies, life, food, people, and anything else you can imagine! People […]
