Our class goes to the zoo with my teachers. It was Saturday. Because we were bored. We ate a lunch in the park. Suddenly an elephant cookie came out of the jar and eat our lunch! We was very sad because we have our favourite lunch. So, we decided to ate the giant elephant cookie. But it was so big! But we ate it. Finally we was fool!
I go to the hospital. And I'm happy! Because doctor said "You broke your teeth, then you ate a candy and cookie!!" But doctor said "You didn't eat a candy and cookie". And I'm a surprise! And I think this doctor is silly! Because at 6 o'clock he change to robot!
Frank and I went to Homeplus last Thursday. The coupon contest was at the coffee shop. Dolly sister and Lynn want to do it because they can get money so they do the coupon contest Dolly said "hundred, million, billion". And Lynn said "Ninety, five hundred, ten million, trillion". So Lynn won! She got 100,0000,000 money. It was very fun.
I go to the Everland with Caton. We drink a hot cocoa and eat food and we play on a boat in the water. It is night, 6.30pm. We watch a movie, too! It is very fantastic!!!!!! The chair is shake and in the movie the character is really out with the people but we take the glasses off, it is just in the movie. I think it is a magic. Why did we go to the Everland? Because it is lots of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris - also usually in the class - was feeling sick after getting
the vaccination for Swine Flu so was meant to be lying down
but I think he felt a little left out of the action!
A close-up of the "Kind Sophie Tearcher Tree"
Claudia (very smart and has a slight lisp, love her!),
Amy (also supremely shy but cute) and Julie (Loud and
very funny, one of my favourites in the whole school)
Pepero day is huge, and while I haven't seen Valentines Day here yet, seems to be just another reason for Koreans to get loved up. But really it's completely comercialised and created entirely by Lotte, a massive company here who manufacture fricken everything, food, housey stuff etc, have fast food chains, an amusement park in Seoul and great big department stores.
This sight was to be seen all around the country in the days leading up to 11/11:
Great day for teachers, as the kids all bring you pepero, and my desk has been stacked with the stuff since last Wednesday. Also randomly they promote Ferrero Rocher, I was stoked to get some of those as well! Not so stoked to get a lollipop (I think the girl forgot and felt bad, and I think it was actually meant for her but she insisted I take it)... or a stick of gum...
Our goal was to get around three of the museums, Tibet, Chicken Art (simply to finally answer the question that's been plaguing me for some time: is it art featuring chicken or do the chickens actually MAKE the art?!) and the Owl museum (because owls are practically my favourite animal)... however slowness/lostness/museums being closed meant we only saw the owls... but did a lot of wandering around too and all in all was a rather lovely afternoon! Here are some pix.

1) dress up
2) gather with heaps of friends
Mum always sheltered us from Halloween, I remember not being allowed to watch any Halloween specials on The Simpsons (which I completely understand and appreciate now, they're so graphic and I still hate watching them!), and there was no trick or treating (not that Omarama or Te Anau were very big on that)... definitely respect that decision.
But once I'm a grown up girl surrounded by North Americans, I see the benefits of the "holiday".
I kicked off my Halloween experience at Now Bar carving pumpkins. Was a lot of fun, very messy, but I was pretty pleased with mine:
Then on Friday night I spent a lot of time and effort getting ready.I decided last minute to go as Edward Scissorhands, so mega washed out makeup, crazy teased hair, a friend's borrowed jacket and some pointy tinfoil cardboard creations for my hands. I love Edward Scissorhands, and it reminded me of when I was maybe 8, still in Omarama, and mum and dad had rented it the night before from the dairy. It was a beautiful sunny Sunday and they asked me to walk to the dairy and return it, however I hadn't even left my street when I was freaking out that his scissorhands would reach out from the videotape and cut me! I popped into my friend's house to get a bag to take it the rest of the way. Bless.
We all gathered in the park for "Trick or Drink", a tikitour through Yeongtong to particular people's apartment where we all had a shot. Some were nice but most were quite disgusting and passable... but it was a lot of fun just wandering around the streets in a major parade - the police apparently suggested to us to keep it down!
Aidan created this evil skeleton Legoman
costume - and then let off fireworks in it
