Happy 11th Birthday to me! (Parallel 1’s)
Sorry I didn’t do a blog post last week, but I was very busy having a brilliant bowling party (it still would have been brilliant if I hadn’t won!) and eating chocolate cake.
My official birth minute was on Tuesday at 8:29 Singapore time (same in China and at 00:29 GMT). Thank you very much for the birthday post – even though we expect more to arrive – as we haven’t received some parcels that definitely have been sent. Our driver also ordered a cake to be delivered to our house – a white chocolate and coconut cake with fruit! That was a surprise. We went to Commune Social for a delicious dinner and all the staff signed a menu for me.
This week was our school’s international week, so on Thursday it was the international food fair – a wonderful opportunity to stuff yourself with food from around the world. I ate the following:
Scones – UK
Eton mess – UK
Beans on toast – UK
Cucumber maki – Japan
Meat pie – Australia
Italian pizza – Italy
Cheese – Switzerland
Chocolate – Switzerland
Chocolate cake – Turkey
Japanese sweets – Japan
And I enjoyed them all!
Also for international week, we dressed up on Friday in clothes from our country. I wore my Union Jack bowler hat, of course!
On Saturday, we went to Xintandi, and I went to moleskine and bought some things with my birthday money – which led to a search for art (some designers for moleskin had some pieces near different shops and for each one spotted I got a stamp).
That’s all for this week!
