Napier is the best place to go because it is beautiful and so
relaxing. That's where my family and 5 more families all
went. We went there to celebrate the New Year.


When we reached Napier we first got  into our lodge, which
was Te Mata Lodge. When got in our lodge I had a hot
chocolate and my parents had their hot tea. After that we
all had a 1 hour rest.


After having rest everyone woke up and started to get
ready for New Year party at farmhouse where the other
families were staying. When we got there I saw all of my
friends  in a room so I went in the room to play.As soon
as parents came in the farmhouse everyone went crazy
and started for the program for new year.There was so
much fun..everybody singing songs, playing games & dancing.
I was playing tag, hide and seek and a game that jump of
thing onto the floor. Everyone was dancing when the
countdown began10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 HAPPY NEW YEAR
NEW ZEALAND!!!!!!!
everyone cheered.... 2 hours later the time was 2 am in the
morning so we went straight to our lodge to sleep.



Day 2


When my family woke up we had our breakfast and went
to Te Mata Peak,it is one of the highest peak from where
you can see the view of beautiful Napier.When we got
there we took some photos and selfies too. After that
we went to the beach, which was at ½ hr drive.. when we
got there was a problem that was you couldn't swim in the
sea because the waves were too rough. So I looked around,
so did my parents. Then we saw a fountain nearby and there
was sign that you could swim in the fountain so I went in the
fountain,

where I enjoyed a lot. 1 hour later we get back to the hotel.


Everybody was tired, and started discussing for dinner,
then we ordered pizzas..after having pizzas, we went
to sleep,
because we all have to leave next day for Auckland.

I had a fun time in Napier but it was time to go.
I had so much fun playing with my friends and swimming
in a fountain and taking selfies on top of Te Mata Peak,
but it was time to  go back to Auckland.
Guru Nanak's Birthday


Guru NanakÅ› Birthday is celebrate in the month of November.
It is one of the famous festival celebrated in all over the world and
Guru Nanak Dev ji

was the first Sikh guru
.From his childhood he was a poet and philosopher but on his birthday
all the sikh´s go to the temple called Gurudwara to celebrate the birthday.
People also  decorate their houses with the beautiful and shining lights and
candles that smell like roses they also put money near their pictures. It  is
celebrated in the same way as Diwali.


When you go to Gurudwara  you will see the outside is decorated with lights
and inside with flowers and ribbons.


Inside the Gurdwara you feel so good,you get peaceful environment.You hear
Path and Kirtan(Called prayers).


You smell the beautiful fragrance from incense sticks, which feels so good
to mind and body.


In langar hall(Food area)all the food is made by sevadar(Caretaker) and all
the food is served with hands and you need to take the food by joining two
hands together.


You eat delicious mouth watering food like dal(Lentils), Sabzi(Curry),roti(
Bread),rice and dessert.


I love celebrating festivals full of fun and peace.

KNOW YOUR POISON

You must be wondering what Poison I am going to talk about. Right?
Imagine if you were in Countdown buying every single biscuit packet.What would happen to you?
YOU would become obese.

Do you ever look at the contents at the back of packaging?
If you haven’t, I will tell you what I read at the Tim Tam packet and saw three kinds of sugar which are totally bad for the health.

1.What will happen to your body?

You could get fat from eating too much sugar, and your blood pressure might go really high. Some people can even get diabetes which is very bad for your body. And you will need to eat sugar-free things.
2.What kinds of food makes you fat?

You might have been wondering what foods make you fat right? I will tell you what type of food can make you fat... muffins, fast food, fatty foods all might have some poison.
3.What kind of foods should you eat?

You should eat foods like berries, yogurt, vegetables, fruit, oil fish, vegetable soup, lean meats, chicken, fish and dark chocolate. In the drinks, you should have, Green tea, coconut water, iced teas, vegetable soup, and water.

Now you know what to eat and what not to eat . Remember it is you that is in charge of your health and only you can decide what to put in your mouth. Good luck with your lifelong journey towards good health.
