Boxing Day

Boxing Day. The day following Christmas. A day where people go shopping crazy all over the place, but at our house, we have a different way of celebrating.

It all started in the morning. The first person that came was a man, who came with his wife and daughter. My sister was trying to show off in front of him, but I took her upstairs to not disturb him while my glorious dad, (whose hands can massage even broken bones), was massaging him.

Later that day, while I was sitting on my sister’s old car seat (she made me to do it), my cousins arrived! I started to think that they would come every year on Christmas, because it was sunny and kind of cloudy, but close enough. We had a barbecue and a cake, with some laughs and conversations.

An hour after they left, which was about 6:25, my uncle and aunt came to visit us. My aunt brought us biscuits and chips. During their visit, my relatives were having a conversation with my mum. Even though they were speaking Samoan, I heard some English words like, “Sneezed six times”, “Surgery”, “Brain” and, “Scared”. I was horrified, because after 2 minutes of their conversation, I could translate some of the English words and make a version of my story, and it was nearly right! I felt so sad and worried about my uncle, because he was having something very bad. I even heard him say a prayer and some kind of the speech, but the he said something that was worth it’s minute, saying that he prays for me, my sister, and mostly my brother.

Later that night, I realized something weird. Everyone that came to our house always said, “Merry Christmas!” when it’s Boxing Day. I kept on wondering for about an hour and then, my mum and sister went somewhere to pick up my dad. I had chips that were flavored “Pizza”, YUM! Then I ate all the biscuits, which were still great, but when I used it, I felt very full and thankfully, I was happy, because this Boxing Day was feeling like a Christmas. If only it was Christmas...

My Sister's Birthday

My SisterOn Sunday, the 23rd of December, it was my little sister’s 3rd birthday. During her special day, in the afternoon, my uncle’s girlfriend gave my sister a 36 puzzle piece set and a barbie doll, whose name was “Jade”.

Later, at nearly 5:30 in the afternoon, most of my family (except for my brother and uncle) went to our church that we used to go. We were greeted from some people at that church with handshakes and kisses. Even though my sister was only 3 now, she still has that beautiful face that says: “Could you give me something, please?” and still, she was always cheeky, so cheeky that people at that church gave her many stuff, like chips which were flavored with cheese, and lollies with many flavors. I was feeling embarrassed, because she was getting lots of stuff, people are giving away food to her. It felt, different than usual.

After 9:00, me, my mum and sister went to McDonalds to buy a meal to celebrate my sister’s  birthday. When we were going to pay for the whole meal, the “Drive-Thru” person had a little conversation with my sister, but my sister was speaking gibberish. I was stunned. We went back home to eat our meal before 9:50, then my mum, dad, and sister went outside to have a long talk. The first part was between 10:05-10:35, and the second part was between 10:50-11:15.

Energy Brochure.

This is my brochure about 'Energy'. I used Google Drawing for the first time to create my brochure and I had fun making my brochure. During the process of making my brochure I learnt many styles of lining, how to put text into your brochure, and how to fit everything into a brochure.
