Delicious Dennys

On Saturday my friends, mum and I went to Denny's Restaurant in Manukau.  When we arrived there, the car park was completely full and the rain was falling fast.  When we got to get inside it was nice and warm.  As we waited in a very long queue, a receptionist gave numbers to people for their table.
While we waited, another lady randomly gave us a table number,( so that the waitress would know where to deliver our food. A waiter greeted us with a big smile on her face, then she asked for our orders. I chose fish sticks with gravy and potato mash, my mum chose steak and potato and vegetable salad and my friends picked spaghetti bolognese with meatballs, with a side order of garlic bread.  
Image result for Snowball at denny's dessertMy patience and stomach were tested as I waited for more than an hour before our waiter brought our orders. We prayed then we ate, we weren't scared or ashamed to say our prayers in public because we are proud to be Christians. When we finished shoving the last piece into our hungry mouths, we were extremely full.
Later, we all had dessert and to be honest I couldn't have eaten any more. However, the Snowball which was a chocolate ball filled with layers of vanilla ice cream covered with toppings of your choice and hot fudge called out to me.  My mum and friends had plain chocolate ice cream. After each bite, I felt like my stomach had been transformed into a big balloon and was going to explode at any minute
Rain fell on the car on our journey home, my body felt very heavy, but this was not an outing I would forget….until the next time.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday Grandma!

On Saturday the 14th of November, it was my grandma’s birthday. She was turning 92 and it was a very special day for her and our family. We celebrated her birthday at our local church hall, St Bernadettes.

We had to go to church early because we had to arrange the tables, chairs, food and plates for everyone. It was hard work. By the time we’d finished, people were starting to arrive so we quickly left to bring grandma to the hall. When we came back, there were a lot of people waiting for us. We felt a little embarrassed  because our guests were already seated and we the hosts and the guest honour, (Grandma)  were late.

We then started with the speeches from my grandma’s nine children . When they had finished, we had some food. There was ham, prawns, taro, chop suey, curry and flavoured drinks. When the prawns came out, I felt like taking a big handful because they are my favourite. However, my younger cousins and I always went last, it was so unfair but we are the youngest. By the time I got to the prawns , they were all gone. I was a bit angry at first but then I got over it, it wasn’t that important at least I got to have some chop suey and tarro.

After everyone had finished eating, some performed a samoan dance in front of grandma and I was one of those dancers because one grandchild was chosen to represent each child that grandma has.
The first dance was performed by my cousin and the 8th dance was my cousin was my niece’s. She is only 6 years old and she had to do it all by herself I felt sorry for her because it was her first time and she was very shy in front of everyone. When she had finished, she was about to cry and she was red in the face. However, we were so proud of her.

Then it was my turn and I was extremely scared, I had butterflies in my stomach. I was scared crazy but I had to face my fears and go through with it. When I ran up to the front, my heart was beating so fast because I thought people might be watching for my mistakes, I was so nervous. However, I believe in myself and believe I can do it. After I had finished I felt so much better but I was red in the face as well. When I had finished my dance everyone started clapping and cheering. I was proud of my dance and it lasted longer than the other dancers.
Soon after all the dancers were finished, it was time for the cake. We stood next to grandma and sang “Happy Birthday” in Samoan and English. When we finished singing, she blew out the candles and we all cheered. We all got a piece of cake.
However the children always take what is left. It was so not fair but at least we all got to taste. I only managed to get small piece.

Finally we all left and we hugged grandma goodbye. I hope that my grandma stays healthy for many more years to come.☻♥

St. Faustina

I Chose St. Faustina because she was a role model to many through her works for christ, she's an advocate and so humble to many, with a loving heart for the homeless and the needy. St Faustina was so dedicated to Jesus. She accompanied the lonely and showed generosity to others. To this day she inspired many all over the world, through her wondrous works.

Informative Writing on Spiders

You may have come across a spider hiding in various places before, creating webs in every corner. Spiders, are species largely related to the Arachnid family including Scorpions, Harvestmen, Pseudoscorpion and Ticks. They are mostly referred to Arthropods meaning an animal with eight legs. Spiders are predators that have the ability to inject and kill prey with their venom filled fangsImage result for spiders diagram

Spiders have vicious jaws called Chevalier which has several parts to kill their prey and to inject Appendages is located in the jaw to hold the prey and to inject venom. Behind the jaw are Labrum and Labium which works to direct food into their mouth.If you thought spiders create their webs from their mouth , you are wrong they spin their webs from behind their body and not all spiders create webs the same. There are 4 different types, like tangle webs, orb webs and nursery webs.

There are about 40,000 different types of spiders, large and small in every continent except Antarctica. The first spiders were found in fossilized rocks that are confirmed to be more than  38 million  years ago . An actual fact scientists have studied that some spiders have eight or six eyes and can see difference between light and shadow. Some spiders are less harmless than others, if you come across a spider be cautious, do not be scared because they're scared of you, so it's best to leave the spider alone.

Rotorua- Paradise Springs Wildlife

On Saturday, I went to Rotorua with my brother, cousins, and nephew.
When we arrived in Rotorua, we got off at Paradise Springs Wildlife to feed some animals. As soon as we got inside, we paid for ten packets of animal food.
  Image result for paradise springs rotorua lions          

Then we walked along an old pathway that led us to a very large fence for us to see the lions and we weren't allowed to feed them. So we had a look around and we saw a big dark long, cave that was filled with so many lions that I couldn't count all of them. After a little while, we waved our goodbyes to the lions and walked back towards the other path.
         Next, we walked into a bush that had a gate so we opened it and it led us into a large yard. There was a garden full of vegetables but they looked fake and old. Then we saw a little, old, worn out shed which had a big sign on the door that said "Open". When I opened it, it creaked. We went inside, then out of nowhere a cockatoo busted right at us so we ducked. My cousin didn't duck in time, so it landed on his head.

Image result for paradise springs rotorua lionsAs time passed on , we went into another area which had another sign that said"Eels can grow up to 200 centimetres long and have been alive for more than 50 years. We continued to walk deeper into the sanctuary and found a narrow pond that had more than 10 eels in it. They were very large and we got to feed them with the food packets that we had brought. As I was watching them fight for the food, the sun set around us.

Soon we moved on and it led us to six hungry pigs who kept snorting at us. And of course, they were muddy. However, I didn't want to feed them because they ate a lot. Their mama pig was sitting by herself snorting at us as well. I felt sorry for her and went over to her with my little nephew following me with his packet of food which he snatched off my cousin.

       After feeding the mama pig, we said goodbye to them. As soon as we left, we found out that it was getting dark and so we had to pick up the speed. Next, we went to a waterfall that stated:" This fountain is a tourist attraction it was used in the 1800's till now and it is okay for drinking". After reading the sign , we felt thirsty so we tried it. It was so cold but very refreshing.
       Next, we fed some ducks and there were lots of them. Then, we went over to the llamas and the wallabies but they were sleeping under a small tree. We moved to the horses. They were big, small, tall and short. There were so many of them. However, we weren't allowed to feed them because they had hay.

Image result for swans springs rotorua pigsLater on, we found the most beautiful swans but they were only two. I just wanted to feel it's feathers. Finally, we got to see our last animal, they were the cute and cuddly bunnies. They were so adorable and an employee told me if I wanted to hold one, so I did. I just wanted to take him home he was so soft. Then we waved goodbye to the animals. As we left, my nephew wanted to stay with the animals but we told him that he cannot stay or else we will leave him be himself.

I had a very fun and exciting time at Rotorua. However, it would be better next time if we had gone earlier so we could have a longer time to explore Rotorua.

On Saturday, my Auntie and I went to her Parish hall. I was in a Samoan Puletasi. It looked very pretty, it had red flowers with black outline and a white background.

We went past a lot of people standing next to their cars as we were going in the hall. Suddenly, we heard a loud “BOOM!” Loud music bounced in my ears, it was so loud I could still hear it even if I covered my ears. We sat down and made ourselves comfortable. There were not as many people coming into the hall as I expected.

Then a man walked in front of us with a microphone thanking us for coming. He said that there will be performances and they will be serving us cups of tea later. The first performance was by a girl  and her mother. It was pretty  good. The next person who performed was a lady and she was amazing! I tried to copy some of her moves but they were too hard.

Then the moment came for me to perform. I was so nervous that I felt like I was shaking from the inside. But since there weren't that many people there, my nervousness faded away. I started to run  towards the centre of the hall with my bare feet because that is our culture. I did my very best to make my auntie proud of me. I was so proud of myself and before I knew it I had finished my dance. When the program was finished, we had a cup of tea and doughnuts. It was yummy!

Finally, we said Goodbye and we went home. It was a long day for me but it was definitely a fantastic Saturday.

Propagating plants!

WALHT: Carry out and record a scientific investigation.

Definition: Propagation of seeds is the development of creating new plants with different resources.
Propagating a plant or seedling
Mar 14, 2016 12:49:02 PM.jpg
  • 1 plastic cup
  • 1 pin/compass point or a sharp point
  • dirt
  • pebbles/drainage
  • seedling/seeds

  1. Firstly, grab your pin or your compass or any sharp object you can get and poke holes at the bottom of your cup
  2. Secondly, Test your cup if it drains the water out
  3. Thirdly, Layer the inside bottom of your cup with pebbles for your drainage
  4. Add ¾ of dirt
  5. And lastly create a hole that will fit your seed/seedling, then add a little bit more dirt to cover any exposed roots or your seeds.

I think that my plant will propagate and survive through the next couple of days.
