Jurong Bird Park-Singapore-Asia

Today my mum, sister and I got the Mrt to Boon Lay then got the bus to where we were going, Jurong Bird park.

When we got in we went to the penguins, they had emperor penguins, King penguins, Adélie penguins, African penguins, Gentoo penguins, Humboldt penguin, Southern rock hopper penguins and Royal penguins.

Next we went to the owl house, there was a sign that said keep quiet but nobody did. It was very loud but the owl’s greatness overcame the silence. They had lots of owls including Barn owls, Screech owls, Southern and Northern white faced owls plus Horned owls. They were all very interesting.

After that we went through this path that had cages. In the cages there were loads of different types of birds. Some fierce, some colourful, some big, some small, but all wonderful. Then we came to a ranger centre, it had a café so we went in. My sister and I (Mrs juniortravelfreak) had a snack and looked around while my mum (Mrs travelfreak) had a salad.

When we were about to leave my mum spotted another exit so we went through there but what came into our eyes was unbelievable. There were at least 80 wild birds, I was flabbergasted. There were also lots of people feeding them. My sister and I went and bought some bird food and guess what happened…IMG_0684 2

Future World-Arts Science Museum-Singapore

Today we went to Future world at arts science museum, it was all about new technology and what you could do with it. First we went into a room which had animated petals, flowers and butterflies on a screen. It looks quite awesome when it shines on you.

Next we went into a room where it had waves and the waves were going further and further up to the land. it was showing you how very gradually if the world keeps on getting destroyed then in many many years the land will go into the sea.

You could make your own truck, car or rocket out of paper in this room then scan it and it wold appear on the screen and drive on the road.

Margaritas, Dempsey Hill – Singapore

Today we went to a restaurant with my mum, dad and sister, it was called Margaritas. You might think that it was a pizza place but it was not, it was Mexican. We went in and the waiter gave us a table it was very busy. Then we ordered I ordered some chicken and beef wraps, my dad said it would be big and that I should share it with my sister so I did as he said and asked the waiter to give us an extra plate. My mum had something spicy because she loves spicy and my dad had some chicken wraps. We then talked for a little while and before long our nachos came. We ate some nachos but we were all very thirsty. Finally after a long wait our drinks came. My sister and I had a lime juice my mum had a weird drink and my dad had some beer. Then after a little wait we got our meals my wraps were amazing. After eating we went to the toilet paid the bill and drove of.

I think that you should go here.

 

 

My Pet Dragon Story

One sunny day Ryan and his dog Rocco were at the beach playing catch; when Ryan found a metal box in the ground. He was curios of it. He picked it up and Rocco sniffed it then wiped the sand of. It was a safe!

Ryan was surprised but he was more interested in the righting on it because it said, “when you were born is the code to unlock this”. So Ryan typed in 2008 and to his relief the door creaked open and there on a golden plate with a diamond coin. Ryan gasped he thought he was dreaming so he rubbed his eyes he wasn’t dreaming   the egg was red and green with blue stripes. There was a crystal on top with a gold dragon souvenir inside. Ryan took the safe home it was heavy. When they got home Ryan asked his dad if he could borrow his computer he said “yes of course”. So then they asked their mum for a magnifiying glass. Mum said “yes”. Rocco brought his squeaky bone then Ryan carried everything upstairs to his bedroom. He studied the diamond coin but he saw a button on it. The egg suddenly cracked open and out from the egg fell a weird looking beast. It was…it was a dragon!

Gardens By The Bay

Today I met my Dad’s friend Ahsik. He is very nice and has two daughters. They even brought a spare scooter for my sister and me. We met him at the Gardens By The Bay, which is a place that has one of the biggest green houses in the world, lots of flowers and wonderful lights, big metal trees that have green plants growing around them.

Gardens by the bay

 

We went for dinner at ‘Satay by the Bay’ which is a hawker market. It was outside but as it was HOT, we liked it better outside. There were lots of stalls with different kinds of food like: Prata (which is a yummy type of bread which is served with a tasty sauce), seafood, lots of drinks including fresh sugar cane juice and coconut juice which was served in a coconut. Of course there was lots of Satay being cooked on huge fire grills too.

I tried some king prawns (but didn’t really like them) and lots of other things. I liked the Chicken Satay the most.

After dinner we went waking around the gardens and saw some of the light show – there was music and different colours of lights. It was really cool.

We found some big hills which were really good fun to go down on the scooters. I went really fast.

If you are going to visit Gardens by The Bay then you might want to think about bringing a scooter.

My Cards

Travelling to Singapore!

Today I went to Singapore! It took a very long time on the first plane but we had a TV and nintendo 3 DS (a cool one) so it didn’t feel like a long time. The same plane had ten seats going across (instead of four seats like other planes) but it didn’t have an upstairs.  The second plane did have an upstairs which I’ll tell you about later.  During the flight, we got lunch.  I was given a kids meal which had some chicken and potatoes, bread, a nice pudding of blueberry tart.  I was also given a cool box of nice things like Wotsits, a Kit-Kat and some other stuff.

A trip to the Edinburgh Fringe!

Today I went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and watched 2 shows.

I got the train to Edinburgh with my sister from Markinch train station.  At the station I saw a huge vegetable which had a note on it saying it had been grown in Markinch and you should take it!  Here is a picture of me with it:

It was huge!

My Dad took 2 pictures close together and they look funny when they move.  What do you think:

Look at my face!

On the train I read a book to my sister.  It was ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.  We went to see the first show, which was about a missing goose and had a man dressed up as a woman.  I though the show was pretty good and quite funny.

After watching the show we went to a place called The Pleasance which had a big tent for kids.  I got to make my own T-shirt:

Day 3 – Madrid to Barcelona

Today we had breakfast at a small café.  I had a croissant, some Spanish omelette (although we asked for pancakes and cream which was on the menu!) and some small delicious cakes with chocolate and cream!  I was quite excited to have chocolate for breakfast!

We then left the hotel in a taxi and went to the main train station in Madrid which is called Puerta AtochaThe train station was very busy with lots of people and our train left from platform number 5.  Inside the train station there were some huge trees like a jungle – in the middle of the train station!  I thought this was strange.

Here is a picture of me in the station:

Me looking cool at the station

I thought the train was unusual because it looked a bit weird, with the front being carved diagonally into a shape.  Daddy says this is to help it go really fast – which it did – look at my picture:

Look how fast we were going!

It took nearly 3 hours to get to Barcelona so we played snap for a bit and then other card games.  The view from the window was cool – there were lots of mountains and trees – Daddy thinks we saw Olive trees and some ‘vines’ which are used to make wine!
