On Saturday, May 28th 2016, we had a thousand word competition. But we studied 600 and we were tested 100. But, it was in chinese. Our friends from chinese school were there: Chantal, Daisy and Jessica. When we went to register (we is also my sister) we got a 5 dollar gift card to Chapters, Indigo or Coles. Then, we went inside to the testing spot. It was like a spelling bee but you write your answer on a sheet of paper. And everyone writes their answer to all the words. I probably got 15 or so wrong. The top 3 people get an I-pad and people that got 90 percent or higher get money $$. I think I did my best though.
On Tuesday, May, 24th, 2016. We had the try-outs for track and field for ball throw, 200, and long jump. The way it works was, you got 2 tries for each event. The best ones for each grade and gender will make it to the meet. It was 2 people per gender per grade. I only did ball throw and long jump. For long jump I got 2.7 (which isn’t that good compared to the others) And for ball throw I got 21.70!!!!
My best for 100: 17.03 That’s the day when our coach Mr. Hume that runs the 100 said that I should get to the 16’s. But, the

We went to the Science Odyssey near the Tulip Festival. We first learned about fire tornadoes. It was a tornado from fire. Fire tornadoes are made from forest fires. But they are really rare. Because, they start with fire, lots of fire, and then, the tornado happens when the fire is in a tight spot. It looks really cool! We also got Squishable turtles and we made slim! I made a purple colored slim. My sister made a really good pink colored slim! But since it started to rain, we went home! It was a great day! 😀

We went with Ren You Lin and her son Duang Yang. The ‘we’ stands for my sister, dad, brother, and mother and I. We went to Manderin. It was a new opened buffet. We didn’t put a reservation so they said that there would be a 3 hour wait! So we went to T&T. After, we went back. And then, there was a 5 minute wait for us! So then, we got into a room with a place for us! Then, we rushed to eat!
- French Fries
- Mixed Rice
- Shanghai Noodles
- Mixed Noodles
- Lemon Meat
- 1 Peach (really)
- Chocolate chip cookie
After, I got Chocolate ice cream! Technically it was for dessert. After when I was too full, we got fortune cookies and waited a while to go home. But, we got cotton candy (really!) before we left. Also, they gave out mint bubble gum before you come out! But I don’t like mint. Anyways, it was a yummy day! 😀
