Welcome back King Abdullah

Normally, in Saudi Arabia only Thursday and Friday are the holidays. Our king, King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, had gone to America for treatment since he was sick. He came back on Wednesday. So, we have a holiday on Saturday too. Let me complete what happened on the rest of our trip:- I went on almost all rides. It was fun. We were determined to go on all rides that we even went on the merry-go-round. It was booooring and so slow! We had KFC for a snack along with some juice. It was very tasty. I ate it all. I was sad to leave the mall. We ate the remaining food in the class. Nothing was left in my bag when we reached home.     Yesterday, my friends, Devika and Ammu chechi came to my house. We had lots of fun. I love sweets like Om Ali and kunafa . They are Arabic sweets. Today I ate a big   piece of kunafa. I can only write after the exams now. 

Trip to Marina mall

We were fooled! Dad got a message that there would be rain that day. So Mom did not send me to school.   We waited for the rain, but it did not shower. I and Mom regretted that why I did not go to school. Today is Thomas Alva Edison’s 164th birthday!   He is the one who invented the bulb. I found in one of my magazines a thing what 2 foolish thieves did in real life. They planned to rob a bank but in such a hurry called the bank they were about to rob and told them that they are going to rob it! The bank manager said OK but quickly called the police. The thieves must have got a nasty surprise! Alas! Our trip to Marina mall has finished! I was looking fat that day because I had eaten too much. I went on the roller coaster and I loved it! My partners were Lynn and Eeshta. Our teacher told us to protect our partners. Eeshta and Lynn both wanted to be my partners. So I choose both of them. Eeshta asked me “whom will you protect?”   I told “you two protect me, ok?” everybody laughed.

Me, The great artist

I could not write for a few days, so I am writing today. We are having a school trip on next Sunday. And I am soooooo excited! I am great. I did a super work in my drawing class. And my parents loved it! Here is the picture of it. Well, what do you think? I should say that I myself loved it. It took me lots of classes to do it. Like how they say, no pain, no gain. My pain was that I was DYING to bring it home to show to my parents. But I swallowed it off. There are good news and bad news. The good news is I finished all my weekly tests so it’s a breeze. The bad news is my exams are starting next month.   Sot it exactly won’t be breeze next month. Exams are a headache. It is the worst gift schools have given us. Honestly, I think it is dangerous to a child’s brain. This weekend was great. We played a lot since we all are having less to study. My friends, Malu and Devu, visited us too.
