Demo Team

I am on the Demo Team at school.  The Demo team is a skipping team that demonstrates different skipping tricks to different schools in Burnaby and Vancouver.  I just got asked to join a few days ago because one of the members had to leave because she kept missing all the practices.  We practice Mondays at lunch and Tuesdays in the morning at 8:00.  I had my first practice today, and I found it hard to keep up, but I will catch on as more practices pass.  Today I learned to do the grapevine and the karaoke.  I can't wait for tomorrow!

Antibullying Day

  Yesterday was Antibullying Day.  Everybody was supposed to wear pink.  You are suppposed to wear pink because there was a guy who got bullied because he wore pink and the next day everyone in the class (except the bullies) wore pink to school.  Two of the boys in the class started that whole day.

  In January, there was a flash mob at Oakridge Mall in Vancouver for Antibullying Day.  A flash mob is when a whole bunch of people get together and do something to raise awareness for something.  It is supposed to be a surprise.  Here is the video:

Random Thoughts

Here is a list of random thoughts

1.  Have you heard the saying, "For the love of Pete!"? Well, who is Pete?  and why did they (who's they?) choose Pete's name?

2.  Have you watched The Lion King?  Is it good?  I don't know. Tell me.

3.  Here is a really weird song I read in a book.

Down in a meadow in a itty bitty pool fam fee itty fitties and a mommy fittie foo.  Fim! said the mommy fittie, Fim if you can!  Boop boop dittum dattum wittum wattum CHOO!  Boop boop dittum dattum wittum wattum CHOO!

4. Known variations for Justin Beiber's "you smile, I smile".  "You smell, I smell", "You smell, I smile", "You barf, I smile", "You smile, I barf". All variations written by Ms. Parmar's grade 5 classroom.

5.  Something that will make people laugh during a spelling test. "Does spelling count?"

6.   Crows really sound like ducks at 7:00 in the morning. Loud, annoying ducks.  I know this from experience.

7.   The absoulute best way to change Justin Beiber's name.  Just A Beaver.

8.  If your sister brings home a book she made in Kindergarten titled "The Rat", and she wrote her name underneath, the best thing to do would be to add a comma after "The Rat", so it now reads
"The Rat, Sasha".

9.  A guy in my class is named Guray (Goo- ray).  Some students call him Google-ee-ray.  Like the guy on "Monsters Inc."

10.  The mayor of Burnaby is Derek Corrigan

So yeah. My random thoughts.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

It is Chinese New Year  right now, and a few days ago, my family went to the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown.  It was raining hard.  And I mean raining hard!  But that didn't stop us from having a good time.  We went on the sky train from Brentwood Mall,  and then we transferred at the Commercial Drive station to the downtown one.  The first thing we did was go into this huge building that was sort of like a mall, but with Chinese stores and shops.  Me, Ellie, and Sasha each got to buy a Chinese jacket.  Mine is the most beautiful purple and white pattern.  After, we headed towards the place where the parade will run.  It was 45 min. before the parade started, and already it was packed. And I seriously mean packed!  It was SO crowded.  Luckily, we got a spot at the front so all was good.  Except that it was raining and cold.  So, when the parade started it was loud.  There were super loud drummers,  lion and dragon dances, and people handing out li chi envelopes.  Basically li chi envelopes are are little red pockets that have candy or coins inside.  The dances were really cool, the lions and dragons are like huge puppets that have two people inside.  There were lots of people dressed up as rabbits because this year is year of the rabbit.  I was born in year of the rabbit!

Here are some pictures

Those were not from the parade, but actual pictures that are really from the parade will be coming soon

                                                             Gung Hay Fat Choy!

            P.S. that is how you say "happy new year" in Chinese.
