Back to school and welcome IS year!

Summer break is gone!

Just like that.

Well, not really.
I had so much fun during the summer break, mostly with my sister, my mom, and my 2 grannies.
My dad as well, although he went to Jakarta, Indonesia, our homeland, in August.

We went to places, mostly with my mom.
She has so many events to attend and we usually join her.

Then the time came for school.
The first day of school.
6th Grade, here I come!


I am super excited of course, as it will be my first time at the Intermediate School.
And IS is not elementary school for sure! 
I don't know what 6th Grade will be but I hope it will be fun.
Some of my friends go to the same school as mine, but many go to different IS or private.
Well, I guess I will have new friends and have fun with them.

IS is also different because the school gave me the Metro Card.


I take the bus home myself!
My mom usually rides the bus with me in the morning and I go home myself as my mom has to work.
My grandma takes my sister to her school, my old PS.





And we have more homework as well.
It makes me work on them  a lot of time but it's good that it keeps me busy.
We also have career class, when we discuss about the future and the choices I might have.
As always, we study about math, social study - my fave!, and ELA.
I hope it won't be that difficult.



Well, 6th grade is not that bad after all.

Ola, my dad gave me this watch for me as a gift!
It keeps me informed with the time for sure.
Love it!



How is your back to school time?
Hope it's as great as mine!

Summer Break with My PS4

Hands up to those loving PS 4!
Me, too.
Me, too.
Me, too.



I know summer break is over, but I would like to share about my Summer Break with My PS4. 
I got this play station in 2016 as a gift from my father.
Well, we bought it on my father's birthday, which is 6 day different from me.
So it was like birthday gift for both of us, 

When we got home, the first we have done is set up the play station.
My father was the first one to play in it because he brought it.
And he's a great player!
Mom said he has been a gamer since long time ago.

The first game my father played is Unchartered 4: A Thief's End.
Then  we play Lego the Movie together.

He took along time trying to play that game, but after a few hours later we can play it together. 
Then my father found that my sister can't play for some reason, but he figured it by making my sister an account in the Play station.
So all of us can play now.
Well, except my mom.
She doesn't like it.
She plays those restaurant games on her phones sometimes.

When we finished our game we asked our father for a new game,   "Minecraft".
Minecraft is the game that encourages kids to unleash their imagination and build anything they want. Literally anything.

There are three modes in Minecraft which are survival, creative, and multiplayer.





After we ordered it, our game was delivered home. 
Of course we tried it out right away. 
It was fun but we could not do multiplayer because we need PS plus.
I am trying to save 60$ so I can buy PS plus for a year. 
To be honest I like to play Minecraft in the computer because the update don't take that long, but in the PS it's a week behind every Minecraft  update.



After enjoying Minecraft together with my sister,  I asked a game that I can play myself, but the game that my dad brought me gave me nightmares! 
I cant even play it my self. 
It was a zombie game called "Resident Evil 6" 
It was not for me actually.
Because it's my dad's game.

It was scary, and it took a very long time to complete that game since I keep dying and dying and dying. 
Then I asked my dad a game that I want the most at this point was "Destiny".
It is a game where you're one the last survive in earth, but many others survived in their own planets. I stopped playing that game when Destiny 2 came out.
It was fun.




Then, in my next birthday, which is in December, my dad brought this game called "No Man's Sky".
It was a pretty fun game, but it was so hard trying to find materials for my ship, and I keep fighting this drones because I'm doing illegal mining in space. 
Many months later we keep on buying games like Jurassic Park, Star Wars, and  Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Most of them are for kids. For me and my sister.
So today we have about 15 games.
Amazing, right?
That's my summer break with my PS4



But now the summer break is over.
I can't play it too much. 
Many homeworks to do and the school hours are long as well.
So I just play PS4 on weekends, when we don't go out.

Do you like PS 4 as well?
What's your favorite game?

Ice Cream Time - Taiyaki NYC

Do you like ice cream?
I do.
So does my sister.
And my mom, my dad and my grand ma.
So it's all of us in the family ;).

And in one of the summer days, my mom took us to Taiyaki Ice Cream NYC.
It was in China Town, near the Little Italy.
We went there after enjoying  Smorgasburg in Brooklyn.

My mom and my sister wanted to get their unicorn ice cream.
I have to admit it's cute!



Meanwhile, I got straight from Japan on
It's green tea and some sprinkles.
I can't get enough of it :)
It's so good.



The restaurant was so small and it has a looong line but we got what we wanted.
We ate our ice cream outside.
Just like many others ;).




Do you like ice cream as well?
What's your favorite?

Book Review: Minecraft The Island

Book Review on “Minecraft The Island”



Do you know about the game Minecraft? 


I love it!
My sister and I play it so many times.

Well the book is based on the game Minecraft. 
The character does not remember his past, he keeps having flashbacks. 
He tries to survive in the Minecraft dimension but keeps getting paranoid about his past.


In the first chapter the character is struggling underwater, because that’s where he woke up. After that the character swam north, then he found an island to shelter in. When he realized that it was nighttime, he heard a groan then the character got closer, he found out it was a zombie, he run as fast as he can but monsters keep popping up, when he got to a mountain he buried him self to hide form the monsters. The zombie was on top of him he waited the whole night for the zombie to be gone, when it was in the morning the zombie was gone the only thing left was a piece of rotten flesh.

In the second chapter, the character is getting used to the Minecraft dimension, he discovered a tool that is used in agriculture, a hoe but the character needs a tool to break stone so he can make a bunker in the hill. He keeps trying until he got a pickaxe he tried on stone and it worked well. Then he started mining in the mountain to build his base. After a few days when his house was done he started to study the creatures that pop up at night, the first target was the zombie, he found out the zombie has a familiar body like the character their bodies are blocky even the whole island is blocky.

Have you read the same book?



I hope you enjoy it!

Greek Mural in Astoria

My mom has been a great fan of artistic murals.
And we have so many of them here in Astoria.
Including Greek Mural.

And one summer weekend,  my mom took us to Ditmars Boulevard in Astoria and here's what we saw :).


Greek Mural in Astoria.
My mom said it's filled with Greek Gods and Goddesses.



I remember Zeus and Neptune, and we saw Atlas holding the world as well.
It's very interesting.
I wish we could visit Greece one day.

Liberty Statue

We finally go to Liberty Statue and Ellis Island.
Yaaay!


with Liberty Statue

My grandmothers are here so my mom and dad took us all to the Liberty Statue and Ellis Island.

She is huge!




Too bad we didn't get the ticket to the pedestal
But even looking at the Liberty Statue from the ground is already great.

We took the cruise from Battery Park and went to see the Statue.



We walked around the Statue and my mom and my dad took tons of photos.
It was tiring but we saw a lot of beautiful views.



We also had the audio so we could listen to the story.
It was fun!

Have you been to Liberty Statue?

G.R.A.D.U.A.T.I.O.N

The time has come!


We finally finished our 5th grade.
That means we finished our elementary school here in NYC.

It has been such a wonderful experience for me.
I learned a lot!
I love my friends and my teachers.
I love the school and all its staff.
I love my trips.
I love everything.

It was a bitter sweet feeling when we realized that we had finished our days on the fifth grade.
Exciting for the summer break.
Sad that I won't meet some of my friends.



Well, some of them go the same IS with me.
But it's going to be different.

On the Graduation Day, my mom and my dad came.
They lined up early in the morning to get good seat.
They brought me balloon and dancing owl.
Rad!



We also had the farewell for Mrs. Sabel, our principal!
She is such a wonderful principal and we all wish her all the best.

thank you Mrs. Sabel.

I was surprised when they called me to the podium and I was awarded with State of New York Attorney General Award for Triple C Award, Commitment, Character, and Courage.


It has been a great experience.

Thank you to all my teachers and friends.
Everyone in PS 122.
My family as well!



And all the best for 6th grad!
