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.

Singapore Art Science Museum

We went to an art science museum in Singapore and the first thing we saw were lots of lights but they were shaped like flower and they reflected on you.

Then we saw waves and you could lie on the beanbag and watch it and see if it moves or not. What do you see? Afterwards you will see a tunnel take your shoes of and go in.

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.

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

I was so exited to have such an awesome surprise oh my gosh!! I will be handing these out to the places I enjoyed. BYE!!!  

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!

Day 2 – A cable-car ride!

Today we went to a the Teléferico de Madrid which had a park at the top. To get to there, first we went on the underground train and then we got a cable car up a really steep hill.  It was quite high and the ride was fun but a bit scary!

When we got to the end, we saw a very nice view.

Here is a picture of my sister that I took at the top:

We had some food and fed the birds and I got to play in a soft-play which was fun.

Parque de Ritiro, Madrid – Spain

I went to the Parque de Retiro with my Mummy, Daddy and brother. In the park, we went on a rowing boat and Mummy and Daddy rowed it. I got a shot of paddling the boat. I got splashed by the water fountain and my brother got soaking. In the water there were big fish that jumped out of the water. My brother took his t shirt off and his t shirt got even more wet so we had to let it dry in the sun. The boat was good fun. After it, I got a Haribo lolly from the van.

This is a picture of me and my brother:

Me and my brother beside the lake

Mummy says: Parque de Retiro rowing boats EUR 5.80 each. There is a maximum of 4 people per boat and under 14s must be accompanied by an adult. Over 65s get concession.
