You would love to have dinner next to the Kok River as the sun sets in Chiang Rai. There are amazing opportunities to take photos, amazing view and amazing food! But the fried chicken was smelly. Still everything else was absolutely devine. I had rice with stir fried vegetables plus the oyster sauce. Sam was the person who ate the chicken, Dad and Zoe the squid, Mum had the prawns in yellow curry. I ate the most of er well, rice? After,I drew pictures of aliens on a made up planet
When we went to a temple in Chiang Mai, we ate some mango and sticky rice. Then we went for a walk in the temple. We saw a man making special bands that I think are to do with Buddhism. He sang a special charm while putting on the bands on our wrists. He wrote something on the gold part which I think was good luck in Thai. There was a giant gong at the temple that if you hit it you get to choose a wish and there were bells that we think we're not allowed to ring them but we did.
Oh my gosh, I can't believe I climbed up the tallest mountain in Thailand! I had to climb 307 steps. Zoe got there first! But still it was worth it; there were gold buddhas, gongs, bells and even flowers! But best of all emerald buddas! On the way up and down there were souvenirs that sold lots of things for a very high price! Some even sold buddhas! I wanted to buy a bell but it cost a lot of money; and my dad thought I would lose it. On the way down we got corn in a cup and I also wanted some fruit but there were lots of flies.
I felt sad and upset when I went to the elephant hospital near Chiang Mai. When I saw some of the elephants I imagined how painful it was when they got hurt. One of them stood on a land mine and another got hit by something heavy on its leg. But the sad thing about them was they had to be chained. The elephant hospital takes care of elephants. But you might be thinking why can't they go to the vets? The answer is they are too big and they might even knock down the vets' place. Elephants get hurt by pulling logs, working on the streets, stepping on land mines and being mistreated by having to do elephant shows. When I found out about elephants stepping on landmines, I asked lots of questions about them. I found out they use a pressure plate to connect the circuit so you don't know where it is until you step and it's too late. After the wars, people forget where they put the landmines and leave them. Sometimes people use elephants to walk in front of them so they know where the landmines are.
Here are the answers to the questions I asked the Toothfairy. I found out the answers when I woke up this morning and saw some money under my pillow. She wrote her answers and signed off as TF! I thought it meant teef (for teeth) but actually it meant tooth fairy.
She is the size of an atom. Her favourite fruit are apples. Her friends are Santa and the Easter Bunny. She likes teeth because they are jawsome; and she has infinite amounts of money!
You would just love to see all the temples in Sukhothai; they're absolutely amazing! There are towers and buddhas and all sorts of old things! There are so many temples because this place was an ancient city which means it used to be the capital city before Bangkok or Ayuthaya. I made some wonderful sketches in a drawing book and my mum let me use her phone to take pictures. Some of the temples were in lakes and some were very small but the first one was the biggest.
I have lost my 9th wobbly tooth. Did you get my last tooth from the tap pipe? Can you write a question to me?
Here are my questions:
Pom has been here for 2 years Kong has been here for 5 years. They are friends. This place was a bamboo forest but then they cut it down to make a bamboo school. This place has lots of rain in the rainy season. There are 12 rooms here. Pom likes carrots, Kong likes tomatoes. Now about Khun Meechai. He built one school. He built this place to help people learn. I like this school because they are kind and caring.
I'm going on a trip to the north of Thailand, but right now I'm in a place called Birds and Bees. There are lots of amazing things that I'm doing because there's a school named the Bamboo School and we need to help them learn. Today I have been teaching lots of classes with my mum and dad. For most of the classes we did a game called International Fish. To play we need to choose a topic then think of some things to do with the topic. When you finish thinking of things you need to say them if someone else has it you cross it out. The students are very kind and never fight.
When my dad was away, me, Zoe and my mum went to the Cinima at Central! We watched an amazing movie called "Guardians of the Galaxy." This movie was about a boy named Peter and he was stolen by a person who lives in space! He meets a half tree half human person with a talking raccoon. He also met a green lady who became friends with Peter. There was a really strong person who wanted to kill the baddies. The entire thing is about a special orb that contains a special stone… I liked it when the raccoon pretended he needed a robot leg but he didn't. My mum liked it when Groot said "I am Groot", whenever he spoke, but it always meant something else only the raccoon knew what he said. It was good seeing it in 3d because Groot reached out it felt he was reaching out to you. I think the sequel will be about Peter meeting his dad.
8 years old, I like to create and make things. I make up great jokes and love to read!
I can send you updates of my adventures to your email address!
