I had heaps of fun on my holiday but I won’t tell you what I did every day or else it would be a very, very long post.
So instead I will tell you my highlights with information:
Swimming in the swimming pool: There were 3 big swimming pools at the Merlin Beach Resort. There was also a baby pool and a spa. My favourite swimming pool was one with a water slide.
Shopping in Patong: There is this enormous shopping area in Patong that sells anything you need. By the end of our holiday I had bought quite a bit from there.
Going on the Elephant Trek: We rode on an elephant for 1 hour. The elephant my mum and I were on was so slow. She was 59 years old. Facts: Elephants can live up to 120 years old and can drink 250 litres of water a day. The elephant we were on stopped for about 10 minutes because it was that thirsty.
Going on the Phi Phi Island Tour: We went on a speed boat to go to different islands around Phi Phi Island. They were so beautiful. The water was so clear. We went snorkelling and saw a lot of fish. My brother and I had to have life jackets on because it was very deep.
Getting my hair braided: I got my hair braided twice because the first time my braids were coming out. The second time I chose the colours pink, purple and light blue.
Seeing the show FantaSea: FantaSea is a big performance in Phuket. When we saw it the stage was very big and there were heaps of people there. There is magic, elephants doing cool tricks, dancing, singing, fireworks and firecrackers. The fireworks and firecrackers were so loud.

Have you ever been to Thailand?
Where would you like to visit in the world that you haven’t visited before?
On Thursday the 27th of September my mum, gran, papa, brother and I went to the Royal Melbourne Show! The Melbourne Show is held at the Melbourne Show Grounds. Here is a link to find out a bit more about The Royal Melbourne Show: http://www.royalshow.com.au/
I was amazed by how many things there were to see, it was much bigger than the Geelong Show. Some of the rides I saw were so crazy. I only went on one crazy ride with my mum, brother and papa. It was a big roller-coaster that went slow and then fast when you went down. I couldn’t breathe when it was going fast. The ride was called the Taipan Roller Coaster.
Some of the things that you could do or see were:
-Go on rides
-Look at animals
-Get show bags
-Watch shows or performances in the Arena
-Get your face painted
The rides that I went on were:
-The Bubble Ride, you go around in a bubble floating on water. It is really hard to get up once you fall down.
-The Bouncy Slide, it was like a jumping castle but it was just a big slide. I went down so fast that I burnt myself, not the fire burn.
-The Pirates Adventure, there were heaps of different obstacles inside. There were poles to swing around, a big bouncy slide to go down, a bridge that moved side to side and heaps of high ladders.
-The Taipan Roller Coaster, the Taipan roller coaster was one of my favourite rides. It went so fast at some points. It went round and round in circles and then it slowed down and then it went fast again.

Have you been to the Melbourne Show before? What did you enjoy about it??
Have you been somewhere like the Melbourne Show before?
At 6:15 in the morning on Saturday 21st of July my dad, brother and I got up to get ready to go to the snow. We went to Lake Mountain. It took us about 4 hours to get there. We went with my cousin and uncle.
When we arrived we got dressed into our snow gear and went to have fun on our toboggans. A toboggan is a sled that you can ride on snow or ice. My dad and uncle pushed us fast down the hills. It was so much fun! My friend Sophie gave us a lend of their snow clothing and a snowboard. We had a go on the snowboard and I ended up going backwards, I almost banged into people!
I threw some snow at my dad and uncle. It wasn’t snowing there so they were making snow to put on the hills. To be honest, it wasn’t that cold. It probably wasn’t for me because I was wearing heaps of snow gear. Once you started running around you couldn’t feel it.
I got this idea off Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan. Here is the link to the post: Happy Mother’s Day
I was so excited on Sunday morning to give Mum the presents I got her. I jumped out of bed, got the presents and ran down to my mum and dad’s room. After Mum had looked at the presents I asked, “Did you like the presents?”
She replied, “I love them!”
The things I got her were a vanilla car freshener, a shopping list that said ‘World’s Greatest Mum’, toffees (lollies) and a picture snow globe. But it wasn’t any ordinary snow globe, you could put a photo of your family in it. My brother also had gifts and my dad also bought some things. We had a Mother’s Day stall at our school so that’s where my brother and I got our gifts.

My mum means the world to me. She is special in every way. I love her because she cooks and buys yummy food, she has a nice smile, she is very funny, she works to make money and she takes us to special places. She isn’t the only one that earns the money though, my dad does too. 🙂
