Singapore is a multi racial country. For example, in singapore hawker centre they sell many types of food. Malay hawker sells halal food and serve with many versions of traditionally tamil food. Chinese stalls also introduce malay ingredients and cooking methods. This will make the cuisine of singapore rich and cultures attraction. And did you know that ice cream was a chinese food? It was found by an famous Italian explorer when he was roaming around china then the recipe was brought back to Europe and it then becomes the ice creams that we are eating now.

   The title of the book is Percy Jacksons And The Lightning Thief. It is written by Rick Riordan.
   The story is about a boy named Percy Jackson, he is a half boy and a half god. He always thought that he is just a normal kid but until one day, he vaporised his maths teacher and things started to go wrong. Now, he spends his time fighting with swords, battling with monsters and going on a huge quest to find the thief of the lightning bolt and return it to Zeus, his father with his friends. on the quest, he fought many monsters and tried to keep himself and his friends alive. In the end, he managed to return it to Zeus and know who was the one that stole the lightning bolt. He then stop the gods from starting a war and have peace.
   I like the book as it is very interesting. Even if I have the chance to change the book, I would not change anything about it. I would recommend this book as it is very interesting and makes u want to read more. I think that those who like adventure stories should read that book.

International friendship day is a day where all races come together and celebrate it. From that, we can know more about their languages, food and not to forget, their culture. We could also have a chance to see their costumes too!

movie review

title: Frozen
Describe the most exciting/memorable part of the movie. Why do you like it?
The most exciting part is that Anna's heart frost and she tried to save her sister- Elsa. I like that part as it was very touching.

If you could rewrite one part of the movie, which part would it be and why? How would you like to rewrite it?
if I could rewrite, I would tell Elsa the reason why she could not come out of the room and had to wear gloves.
List 3 Lessons that you have picked up from watching the movie.
- never marry a man you had jus met.
- accept yourself for who you are.
- true love comes in many forms, including you family members.

reflection of english lesson

   So far in English lesson, I enjoyed it very much as Ms foo made the lesson very interesting and fun Ms foo always show interesting puns after the lesson ends if the next subject teacher have not come. Even if we do not get the pun, she would patiently explain to us. she taught the whole class lots of things.

   I felt very disappointed with my common test result it was only a border line pass. Even though it was a pass, I was expected to have scored more. The phrase book help a lot too. It help me to brush up my English and vocab and in one year or a term, I could learn many difficult words. it could let me know current news too. I took my difficult words from newspaper.

   I think the teachers could help me by having more of the support programme. Even though Mdm tan said that it was jus a option weather Ms Foo wants to do it or not. I find it very useful as it helped me to revise a lot. Of cause, I also need to play a part by revising and doing assessment at home or during the free times. reading newspaper will help too as I have said earlier I could learn vocabulary and know the current news.

letter to sibling

Name: Tan Xin Ying
Class: 1E1
Draft 2: letter to sibling
                 Dear Jesse,
              How are you studying in England? I am writing this letter to tell about the riots in Little India recently.

                 The incident happened on 8th December at around 9.30 at night. a private bus runs over a man who was thirty-three years old at the junction of race course road and Tekka lane. After a few minutes later, the police and Singapore Civil Defence Force was informed of this serious road accident.
                     After a few minutes, the ambulance and the police came, the police blocked the whole entire area. Because of that, lots of people gathered around the scene in just a blink of an eye. The dead body of a worker was extricated from under the bus. The mob has started and pelting emergency officers with concrete blocks and beer bottles.
                  The police calls for Special Operations Command to arrive. They force the crowd to disperse.   After that, police take control of the scene. High visibility patrols deployed to prevent rioters from regrouping.
                  I felt unsafe nowadays its like not really Singapore anymore. I think that Indians should not do this to Singapore as Singapore did not do anything to them. I really felt very pissed off when I heard about the news. they even harmed the innocent police. Luckily, justice have long arms and caught those Indians that is there during the riots. I really hope that none of these incident happen again. 
                        When are you graduating and coming back to Singapore? we missed you so much! Please reply me ASAP!!

The Story Of A File

My house is at popular book store. I stayed in there like about 2 weeks until someone bought me home. Oh sorry! I forgotten to introduce myself. My name is file. I am a simple light purple file with sparkly glitter on it. Like I have said, I stayed in popular for about 2 weeks, until a girl bought me home. At first, I found myself in a dark place nicely packed with worksheets and books, I was in a nice sky blue converse school bag! I was taken out when the teacher called up for my owner's name-Serene. All of her friends were looking en grossly at me. I can tell that many people was envious that my owner have me as a file. she cherish me a lot for the past few week. Until one day.... My owner's sister- Kimberly and Serene was fighting over me. I can feel that I am tearing into 2 parts! Ouch! I can feel that partly of me was teared. I heard shouting from her mother "stop fighting! when are you girls going to stop fighting and now for a file?! and see now the file is broken! I bought it in less then 1 month is broken! now I'm going to throw it away!" Kimberly's mum really throw me at the nearest rubbish dump. I was accompanied by a lot of new friends like plates vases and a cute little key chain. They seemed so sad as they were also like me either they were cracked or too old. Just then an old uncle walked pass us and picked me up. I was so tired and I fell asleep after that. The next morning, I saw myself lying nicely at the flea market. A young lady saw me and pick me up, she then paid the uncle three dollars and took me home. After a few hours, I saw myself in the classroom again. The young lady that has bought me was a teacher! She then explain to the whole class why she bought the file at the flea market instead of buying a brand new one at any store. I felt so happy, I felt that actually I have something in the teachers heart!
                             THE END

my struggles and how i over come it

Since the start of the year, my teachers and parents has been nagging and saying PSLE is this year so stop  your honeymoon period and start studying for it. I instead of listening to them, I took their words to death ears. I still did not listen to them until the last two weeks of the exam. I studied very hard but I knew that its not going to work, I could not memorise every single thing my teacher had thought me. I was then in big big trouble. Time flies, two weeks is already gone its the first paper of PSLE-English, like the other people im very nervous when the teacher said start I quickly turn over the page and start writing I do the same for all the 4 papers English maths science and Chinese. After PSLE, I enjoyed myself until this day came... 22 November its the day I get back my results!! I was standing at the school hall very nervous yet excited. the teacher called my name its my turn to get my results now. While taking my report book and my exam slip, my hands shivered I felt my hands as cold as ice. I then leave the hall and opened my report book. I was lucky that I still could get into express but had limited choices of school. I asked my tuition teacher and she said go to Chong Boon Secondary. Hence, I put my first choice as Guang Yang and second choice as Chong boon. Even though I could not get into Guang Yang but I was happy that I could at least go to Chong Boon. I was then looking forward to the first day of school.

Coincidently Wei Ling, and I are in the same tuition we met lots of friends there and we enjoyed the lesson at the tuition at the middle of the year Jesse and saint joined and that's when I met and know her better. At P6 our friend ship got stronger and stronger. My favourite teacher is Mdm Ellen Woon she is very nice and caring.
