My Holiday Journal | Isaac Koh Week 4

Help! I haven't completed any of my homework, neither have my classmates. The pressure of completing the homework is excruciating. The mountain of homework terrorised me. We all were rushing through the homework. Good luck class with the homework.

My Holiday Journal | Isaac Koh Week 3

This week, on Sunday, was the day my neighbour left Singapore for Spain, his hometown. His name is Leonardo. I definitely miss those days where i played soccer with him. He was good for a 9 year old, definitely the best soccer player I know of below 10 years of age. He was a Real Madrid fan. We ate our last meal together at Changi Airport before waving goodbye for the last time. You will be missed.

My Holiday Journal | Isaac Koh Week 2

This week, I went on holiday to Ho Chi Min City with my family. Ho Chi Min City was a great place. The part I enjoyed most was going to the night market and bargaining. I even managed to bargain for an item at 80% off! I think a contributing factor to that night's success was also the weather. The rainy weather caused a lower number of customers which increased the desperation of the shop owners to make enough to feed themselves. This trip widened my view of the world. I realised that Singaporeans are very lucky as Singapore is very good country as our government takes good care of us. This trip was definitely the most memorable vacation.

This two weeks was the bad part about the holidays. After the trips,I had to rush my homework.It was tough as I had a lot of family dinners and lunch. I obviously wasted a lot of time on clash of clans. Apart from that, I also spent some time meeting up with my friends;keith and Ian. It was definitely one of the better ways to spend my holiday. During the June holidays, it was also Father's Day. Me and my mother bought a belt for my father and left it on his bed on the day before, he was so surprised but was kind of sad that it was not something me and my sister made. Of course I am not empty handed, we purposely gave him the best to make him think that,that is all we had gotten for him. Just a week before fathers day, I made a box for my father, it was not an ordinary box. The cover of the box is a tennis court and precise structures. I made that for him as I knew he love tennis. Apart from that, I also made a pop out card and a complicated card that has 8 sides. I was also able to do the 8 sided card all thanks to the Vietnam GCP students, they taught me about the sides and forms. I used what I had learned and gave everything I made to my father on the day itself. The time was at around 11:30 when I gave the presents to him. I wanted to make him think that I really did not do anything. As usual he loved it and brought it to his office the next day. Then it was the last few days of the holiday, like most of my other friends, everyone was rushing geography. Although it was tough, it was also a fun experience as everyone were still spamming on WhatsApp at 3:00 am. All in all, this holiday was fulfilling and I had a whale of a time.

I was flying off on an 11 hour trip to Germany. I was so excited.It was the first time I was going there.
On the plane, I was amazed by the variety of movies and tv shows that they had. I watched them the entire way there. Soon, I was in Germany, even though it was summer it was still 14 degrees.The air outside was like in an air-conditioned room. When we got settled there, we booked a tour to one of the castles outside Munich. The castle was built upon a hill and it was marvellous.I waa astonished at the deign of the building.  Fun Fact, the king's castle was never built for a defensive building. The interior of the castle has modern facilities with great work of art. Most of the art was imagined from his dream or from the multiple plays he saw. The throne room was one of its kind, it had everything it needed to be a throne room but the only thing that was not there was the THRONE. The king's name was Ludwig ||. He was gay and was never married. The King's  mother was invited for dinner one day and was astonished by the art. She tried to support the building by selling some of her jewellery but Ludwig || refused.Unfortunately, they didn't allow us to take pictures inside the castle so I don't have pictures to show you.There is one more interesting thing that I need to tell.There is this playground that uses wood shavings instead if polymer.It does not have much thought and everything is made out of wood except the metal slide and the swing set.If I shared everything on my trip , I would need more space
