Dong Qian Lake

This week at school I have been looking after the roof garden, finishing props for the school play & researching prices of items for the roof garden.

Then we had a long weekend due to the dragon boat festival. Before going on holiday, I went to have a haircut but, this week, I couldn’t have it at our usual place. Here is a multiple choice quiz on why this might have been:

A. The hairdressers was shut for the weekend – oops
B. There was a wailing lady lying in front of the door way & there was a big crowd of onlookers
C. The curlers had caught fire & there were firemen everywhere
D. The shop had been taken over by Wagas (cafe)

(See next blog for the answer)

On Friday I tried a new restaurant with Mum, Dad, Ruzanna & Suchat called Macasa – the chocolate lava cake was super yummy delicious & fantastic!

Here are some videos about how our holiday went:

We have been watching Masterchef Junior at home which was really good & then tried Junior Masterchef here in our room, which wasn’t nearly as good. We then saw Madagascar 3 on TV – which I rate 2/5.

I have also been perfecting my English – have a go at this. I bet most of you will not be able to do it!

During breakfast this morning, Dad did something he said he has not done in years:



And this is the lake we were staying next to:


We are now safely back at home in Shanghai. I am going back to school tomorrow!




  1. Excellent blog this week Thomas. If you see any Cadbury’s Creme eggs buy 3 and see if Dad will do something else he’s not done for years.

    Well I went for what I thought was the obvious in your quiz but not sure.
    As for the English reading test, I think I did pretty well, although I admit to hesitation once or twice. And yes it was exhausting.

    This is what your Daddy used to do while he was at school, rather than studying hard like you!


Tell me what you think!
