Stanley’s letter

Dear Mom and Dad,
Since I have arrive at camp, my friends been pretty nice to me, I’m doing fine here and we will do lots of activities. I have already learnt how to water-ski and we have been running pretty hard obstacles course too. Camp is really hard, but I’m trying my best, one of my friends’ even helps me with the activities. The lake is really nice and clean, so I also have a good time swimming too. I also lost some weight and starting to become healthier, I guess this camp is much better than “Camp Fun and Games”.
My friends are really nice, so is out counselor, they are awesome and also taking good care of me, don’t worry…
In our rooms, we have nice and comfortable beds, the size is not that big but it’s OK, the room is also very nice and we can get clean clothes everyday. The beds are soft so we always have a really nice sleep. We can even have our own tables so I can write to you all the time without anyone disturbing me, and we have cards and games too, so I not that bored in my free time, and there’s fans in every room, so in the hottest days, we can still keep our self nice and cool.
The weather is nice and very comfortable, and if it’s hot, we can go to the lake to cool off. We even have a room for entertainments, there’s TV, couch, games and all kinds of stuff. The food here if fine too, it’s not too bad, but I still misses the meals I usually have from you, Mom. Here at camp we can always have water to drink and good foods to eat, the shower is kind of nice too.
Well, I have been having a great time here at camp but will still hope for the day when I come home, so wait for me.
Stanley

Language B: My Own Carbon Diaries

Mon, Jan 3rd ( 1st entry )

Today is a very different day, carbon rationing has begun!! I’m quite happy ‘cause less carbon, no global warming or climate change, and there will be more fresh air, but even though things are going to be better that way, I’m still pretty sad. Now we cannot use electricity as much as we want anymore. I wonder if carbon rationing will ever stop, since climate change is already bad enough, but I guess we will have to wait until everything is in order again before the government wants to end carbon rationing, and it’s going to be while until then, so sad….

😛 Even-though lots of people hate this stuff, I’m not that sad about it. The biggest problem for me right now is I’m worried about some of the school and study issues and things like technology, but I’m not worried about the fact that we will have less time to go out to play with our friends or chat with our friends on the computer or anything like that. I’m so glad that I’m not that type of girl who goes out everyday ‘cause if I was, I would be panicking about that matter right now…I’m just so surprised that not many of the girls are going CRAZY because of this, but if they do, I guess they will get used to it sooner or later.

😦 Today was boring!! I didn’t know what to do. Besides reading books and doing homework, I can’t find anything else to do that is fun…That’s all I have for today, no more to say, the entire day was just boring………

Tues, Jan 4th ( 2nd entry )

😦 Another day of carbon rationing, so far things at school have been terrible. Lots of activities are nearly impossible to do, and there are lots of things that I like, but we can’t use much electricity anymore. Many activities like using the sewing machine, goin’ on camp, using the computer lab, blah blah blah things are like…impossible, and I’m really sad ’cause sewing was one my favourite things to do at school, so sad…

                          

At home is no different, now me and my younger brother have to plan the time about how we would use the computer, mostly for our studies, and then the food matters. I’ve been thinking about the fact that we can save a bit of the energy we use everyday and act a bit like the Japanese people, we could eat fresh fish or raw meat once in a while like that but it’s kinda creepy too… I’m spending some of my free time now on works at home, like washing the clothes by hand to save up some more energy, but it’s so boring, and when I’m not doing anything, I just don’t know what to do !!

The street is quite messy now, sometimes there is panic buying and it makes things become very difficult and there have been rumors about protest and violent things too, but I don’t wanna talk about it. Many people lost their jobs too, some companies and industries are goin’ MAD and some jobs have become pretty much useless, so sad. My dad is also really busy right now too, and I don’t feel so good about this. It makes everything very unpleasant. I worry about this, I’m just gonna stop there and end it here for today, see you later diary….

Fri,  Jan 7th ( 3rd entry )

So boring!! Every day looks the same! 😦

Most of my hobbies are like…banned, and school is boring, we can only sit around and write all day. The only fun here right now is PE and Art time, no more Technology, and we can only write essays in English class now, and it’s so BORING!

There’s a math test coming up. We have to prepare for the test. I miss Mathletics (an online math program), I don’t use computers much anymore, so I won’t be playing for a LONG time. I miss using the sewing machine too, even though we don’t need to use it at school anymore… I never thought I would miss all of these things. I have been thru so many things, but it’s quite sad to see that I won’t be able to do that stuff for while.

Daddy has been really busy today. He has been trying to work out the problems at work. He’s been wandering around the house for hours now, OMG… I heard the news about an earthquake in Japan, geez, I know some of dad’s Japanese friends, and I like them a lot too. I hope they are OK. There’s a man who is kinda lucky, while Japan was “shaking”, he was on a business trip to…somewhere else… Dad’s been wandering around the house (again, obviously…). He looks worried, and mom just keeps saying “They will be fine, don’t worry…” again and again to her self and to dad. I guess they are worry about those people in Jp.

                       

Aaahhhh!! It’s so boring here (!!), I want to use the computer so much!! Even though I don’t miss Facebook as much as my friends at school, I’m so freaking bored, I can’t watch anime film or read manga online anymore, and those were one of my favorite hobbies too… Nah, I’m done for today, I’m too tired to say anything else… 😦

Sat, Jan 8th ( 4th entry )

🙂 Yay! It’s Saturday, no school (!!) but still, I don’t know what to do!! Waking up and then falling asleep again and again…That the only thing I could do right now huh…

Oh my god!! I just remember somethin’ about the earthquake thingies in Jp, I remember that one of dad’s friends has a family and a baby too (to think about it, I never knew what that guy was doin’, I know them but I never thought of asking what they were doin’ or where they are), I wonder if they are OK… Oh yeah, I wonder what happened to the new tower they were building for Jp and the old Tokyo Tower… The new one is not completed yet, it would be a waste if the new tower falls down. It just reaches Tokyo Tower’s height. Hard work will go to waste if that happens… So sad… 😦

I wanna bake a cake!! It’s been a long time since I made cake, but I can’t, ‘cause it uses up carbon, but still, I want to use it a lot. It’s so boring at home; well…it’s boring everywhere… Come to think about carbon issues, I read this book “Carbon Diaries”, the family in there never think of moving and living somewhere else, why is that ?? I know it would use up their carbon points, but why don’t they just stay out of England for a few days at least… (??) Life is full of confusing things that I will never understand, unless the teachers know what the answer is though…

Oh boy…now I remember something really important: college… or university, I don’t know… how am I gonna solve that problem now?? Geez, I don’t even wanna talk ‘bout that… OK…now I don’t have anything left to say, I’m out of ideas, geez…

Mon, Jan 10th ( 5th entry )

😦 I was late for school today, but that’s a normal thing now, since we can’t use cars much right now anyway… It’s not really boring, the teachers try to entertain us once in a while for fun by playing physical and thinking games and things like that, but it’s not very entertaining either. Everyone is getting used to it now. All I ever do in my free time is to watch the boys play soccer. It’s amazing for them to never bore of playing it. 🙂

I just had a boring afternoon when I got back home. My younger brother was running around like a dog. Then sat around and ate like a pig, such an annoying boy he is. At that time I just kept wondering what would happen in the future, like what if our family falls apart ( ?? ), or the society goes MAD ( !? ), that would be horrible, but all of that ideas is from that Carbon Diaries, so I don’t think it would really happens, but there is a possibility, in life, anything can happen…

There was big news about some people or island being under water or something-what a disaster… Lots of people needed help, and they lost their home too. Many people thinks it’s caused by Global Warming, well I also think the same way anyway…Back when we could actually use electricity as much as we wanted to, there were people on TV who think that low land countries like Holland gonna be under sea water because of the sea water level rises, and what caused that (?? ), Global Warming of course, but what are the causes of Global Warming ( ? ). We are, and that’s why we are having carbon rationing…What an interesting thing to know. Friends at school would probably think I’m a nerd now…Geez, sometimes I don’t even know why I know so much about this stuff 😛 ……

….Now I’m happy again. It’s only for while but at least I had fun !! I had a baking lesson today, well it’s not actually a BAKING lesson,and I didn’t have to worry ‘cause we DIDN’T need to bake it! It was a No-Bake Apple Pie !! I can make cake now (!!), YAY!! It’s been such a long time since I  made a cake ( even though it has just been a few days, but it felt like FOREVER !! )….

Aaahhh, it’s so boring again !! I have nothing to do again… Homework ?? Already finished it… Baking ? NO can do… Drawing ? Already spent 2 hours for it… 😦 Nothing, nothing to do at all !! Why does my life have to be so unfortunate !? Why does it have to happen to me !? Why now !?  Back in the days, I usually wasted hours of my life for things that I enjoy like baking, but now I’m wasting my life by sitting around like a pig ! And I hate it !! Nothin’ more to say….!!

Australia Day Evaluation

Australia Day Evaluation

On Wednesday, January 26th was the Australia Day Fund-raiser Day, it was held to raise money for the Hap orphanage in Cambodia, which is also the place where the year 6, 7 and 11 will visit for camp the upcoming weeks, which is exactly on Feb 28th . 10,129,000 VND or $500 was raise from the work of the year 6 and 7 student, and this money will be use to buy a water tank for the orphanage…

The fundraiser at the canteen area and food to sell.

The fundraiser was taken place in and near the canteen at the AIS Primary campus, APSC compound in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. Our goal was to raise enough money to buy a water tank for the Hap orphanage, and we did achieve our goal, but we never thought that we would went overbroad by raising an amount of money up to 10,129,000 VND ( $500 ).

Before the Australia Day, everyone in the Yr.6 and 7 were all planning how they would work their stall, a lot of things were going on at that time, everyone was all working very hard to get everything ready and worry about many things like food, drink or tools, the preparation… etc. Everyone was a part of it; they all have a job to do. The Australia Day was so important at that time that our humanities teacher has to ask some other teachers to give some extra time in class like in technology, science and art class for time to make poster. Many of the yr.6 and 7 were really busy; some was planning to sell pizza, cupcakes, drinks, and a Vietnamese snack “Banh trang” (rice paper) along with some extra things…Beside the stall preparation, many poster and flyers were made to represent stores and also to put on the walls so the primary student would know about the event.

The busy Yr.6 and 7 students.

The boys who were selling Vietnamese rice paper snack.

When Australia Day finally came, mostly everyone was in Aussie clothes, and all of them look great too! There were also some girls who got their own clothes for their team and it look really cool, with the word “Aussie” at the back. It was really great to have our own stall and able to sell the goods we make to the little kids too, and since everything went out well and successful, everyone’s effort didn’t come to waste. Before that, many things was happening, most of the year 6 and 7 were really busy selling their things, especially the girls team who were selling drink and milkshake and a boys team who was selling the Vietnamese mix rice paper snack. Some of them were so busy, they don’t even have time to go and check out other stalls…

The girl’s team  who were selling milkshake with the awesome outfits.

Many interesting things happened at the fundraiser, too. There were some weird looking icing, and teachers would do funny things for the students to see with the food they buy. Even though we have work to do, but we still have some time to study, but this time, the yr.7 Vietnamese class student have to sit and study on the ground because most of the tables are use down stair to put the things and goods on, and the best thing to the students is they don’t have to study the lessons for as long as they usually do because they still extra time to set up stalls before the little people have their break.

At the end of the day, our humanities teacher, Mrs.O’Sullivan calculated the amount of money in total, she was quite surprised at first too, just like us, about the amount of money we made…We were very happy about that and even though everyone was very busy, they have a great time, and the little primary kids look likes they have fun too, and it was a really great experience for us, and the whole thing was a huge success, all of are very happy !!

Language B essay : Lions been kept in cages

Lions been kept in cages…?!

I think it’s cruel and wrong to kept lions in cages; lions should be free and enjoy its life as a wild animal and suppose to be running around in the wild. Every lions have its own freedom and deserve to run around with its fellow lions in the wild, I believe that keeping lions in cages is still wrong even if it would be taken care by people.

Lions are animal that was born in the wild, and suppose to be apart the jungle world; it’s also a part of the food chain. By taking them away from their home and lock them in a cage is not just cruel but, it would also takes away the lion’s freedom and instinct and will affect the food chain, and the earth’s natural system. Many lion is used for entertainment for people and slowly all of them will lose their natural instinct, things like been trap in the zoo, and have to work their way in the circus…and while the others lions is in the wild, it will be harder for the lions to start growing population because a lot of their kind has been taken away, especially for male lions.

Another big disadvantage for the lions like when the situation is lions been kept in the zoo, people in business expect the lions to attract people and tourist for them and make them some money, but once their freedom been taken away, everything they own is gone too, people came and expect lions to do what they suppose to do but when they arrive the lions just going to sit around and been lazy, they are not active because once they came into the zoo, all they can do is just to sit around until the zoo keeper give it its next meal, the lions was not able to go and run, hunt its prey so in the end it fail to kept its natural instinct.

Even when there are many bad things about this but many other people would think this it better for them because they are been taken care of, they are completely safe from hunters that is wondering in the wild, and also they don’t have to worry about the about food or have to defend a entire group just to makes sure they can be safe.

Even though lions is been taken care of and they don’t ever have to worry about anything much, I still think and always will believe that lions should be free because since there is not much lions left in the wild, we should preserve these natural abilities and skills of the lions as much as we can and not just to protect these animals, also to live up to its name as one the most impressive wild animal.
