On Saturday, my family went out to sign me up for extra after school classes. This year, my sister was also going to extra classes. I have 4 different classes to attend. They were, Chinese, Maths, English and Writing. I most enjoy maths the most because when you solve like a proper hard question, I feel a leap of joy in my heart every time i do it. My mum also told me we were meeting my old friend Gary there.
After we finally made it to my school, (Wesley College) we made our way down to the booking reception. When we entered the main building, I found that something was wrong. There was no people in the main building! My dad checked out the signs. The signs pointed back the way we came. So we went back and discovered another sign. this one said : turn left into main building. But we have just been in the main building! We went around in circles on end until my dad finally called the school reception lady. She said that the booking was at the first building of the school. So we went to the first building opposite of the cricket pitch. As we went in, I discovered my friend Gary was already there. It turns out we only missed him for about 5 minutes! So as my mum and his mum booked our classes.
Me and Gary talked about our recent events. I told him that my family was going to America, My dad told me 5 days ago. He was going back to china! ‘I have most of my relatives in China’, I said to him. ‘ I wish I was going back too!’
Sorry For the late post but there had been other stuff going on and I couldn’t get around to this post for I had a holiday. But here it is! I hope you enjoy it! I will be posting 3 of these for you.
The Great Ocean Road 1
It was early in the morning when I woke up. It was a moment or two to realize that today was the day that we go on the great ocean road for the first time! I dressed quickly and quietly, not to wake my sisters and tiptoed to my cupboard. I pulled out my books and resources for the trip and stuffed them in my traveling bag. Finally I came to my Teddy. This teddy was one of my treasured artefacts for it has been in my family for 15 years. I has been passed down from father to son, to me. I hesitated. ‘Dad will kill me for losing it.’ I scolded myself, ‘better not risk it.’ I pushed the contents in my bag deeper and threw them onto my bed. I then went into the kitchen.
I could tell that I had been in my room longer than I thought. The room was bustling around and my sisters have already woken up. I crossed the kitchen to my chair and sat down. Today was a quick brekky. It was milk and toast as most days it was plain porridge and banana bread. I gulped down my milk and devoured my toast. I then went to my room and grabbed my book and bag, rushed around my room like a badger digging out a carrot and snatched a sunscreen roll and my jiggling bell my grandpa sent me for Christmas. A loud voice pierced the morning air ‘TREVOR, HURRY UP!’, ‘WAIT!!!’ I shouted back. I dashed out of the house and locked the door behind me. I jumped into the car and shut the door. Finally, we were off!!! I immediately brought out my book. I am a big fan of Harry Potter and I have read every single book in the series. I’m kind of obsessed with books. They lead my imagination far and wide from the real world where enchanted grows. Last time I read a book from 7.00PM to 10.00PM and I totally got yelled at. My dad was so angry that he took all my books and hid them away.
So the journey continued from 9.00AM to 10.00AM ( 1 hour ). When we parked I could tell this was not the great ocean road. So I asked ‘ Dad, where is this place? ‘ Well, the answer was both very exciting and surprising. He replied ‘ Adventure Park ‘ I was hardly believing my ears. I stuttered ‘ Pardon me? ‘ But dad did not reply. I stared into the distance in wonder. Was this real? I pinched myself. YOW!! I held out my arm holding it in pain. Nope this is definitely real!
The more we went in, more excited I became. The great landscape of the park was really coming to shape. The giant Ferris Wheel was towering over the lobby and the world’s famous giant water slide in Australia, the TORANADO was the most attracting of them all. Nearly the whole park’s people was coming towards it. Unfortunately I was not able to get on due to the massive wait filing out of the doorstep. I played on the giant racing slide and the long river run. I was so blown away by all of this that I couldn’t wait to even touch one. My mum insisted on eating lunch first but I wasn’t too keen. When I said I was full I dismissed myself from the table and went on the Big crazed Cha-Cha.
After all the other rides, My dad said that we should go home. It was 4 o’clock in the evening and personally I agreed. My muscles were aching from the exercise. But my sister totally disagreed. She insisted to go on another ride. We broke up in a small fight. Eventually I managed to convince her to go to our hotel and I shall give her a lollipop ( Which I never did ). She can never resist a lollipop.
In the car I fell asleep. I dreamed about my greatest adventure in adventure park and imagined I could fly. I knew I could not do either of these in my life but I did know my holiday was about to get more interesting.
You’ll never guess what happened today! I was bloody interviewed by 7 NEWS!!!
It all started when my dad had insisted on going to Australian Open day, but I wasn’t too keen to go. To be honest with you, the main purpose was probably so that I can play games right after homework. Well I obviously lost the fight. I was dragged into the car like a suitcase boarding a plane and sat there like I never moved. As if my problems weren’t enough, we couldn’t find a place to park our car and I had to stay with dad because I didn’t have a ticket. So after like another hour, we finally found a spot (bless god) and narrowly parked there. We then walked 10 minutes to get to the entry and met my old friend, Gary. When I got in I could tell something was wrong.
It turns out this was planned and I can tell I was extremely late because the look on Gary’s face was murderous. After he accepted my apology, we played all sorts of things like the Nerf Gun Battle, Mini Tennis, Giant Flying Fox and a Mini rock climb. I couldn’t get on other’s because the rain was too hard and I had to take shelter. When I thought none of this would get any better, I was interviewed my 7 NEWSS!!!!! It was the moment of my life! Gary was so jealous, that he actually sweared under his breathe. After that, I was so happy I insisted to stay a little longer. Until like 4 o’clock the ballroom park was closing due to the such bad weather . So when I got home, I knew I had to write about this day. Because it was such a moment of my life. Maybe the story could be told to my children one day!
