The two foods that I eat is from Canada and Chile which is Canada- Pancakes with Syrup and Chile- Instead of hot tea I eat hot chocolate and butter on toast. In my Country my mum gives me the things I just wrote, I prefer pancakes because it is delicious and I prefer hot chocolate and butter and toast because it is easy to make.


  1. Hi Anna,

    This is a great post. I like the way that you considered each of the options and then told us which foods you eat, which ones you prefer and why. That is excellent - very informative!

    Like you, I also enjoy eating pancakes with syrup. I try to make them every few weeks as a treat for my family. I usually make them on the week-end because they are a little bit time consuming and we don't often have extra time during the week to wait for pancakes to cook. Instead, we typically make toast or grab a bowl of cereal because it's a lot faster!

    What do you typically eat for breakfast before you go to school? Do you usually have toast or do you sit down and have a bowl of cereal?

    I'll look forward to hopping back online tomorrow after my breakfast to see if you've had time to write back!

    Until then, take care!


    1. Thank you Rachel,

      Well my breakfast when I go to school I usually eat nothing because I just want to be early to school but sometimes I just grab cereal but when I feel like i'm late I just walk to school with an empty stomach but my mum keeps on telling me
      "Anna are you sure you don't want something to eat" Well I just say "No thank you mum, by the way thanks for asking." So you always have to say love you mum and bye which makes me feel happy. But while I am walking to school my stomach starts to grumble and then I get hungry and I totally regret skipping breakfast but the closest food near me was in my bag which is my yummy lunch which I only eat like the crackers and chips and any yum thing I find in there. But sometimes if I have money I go to the bakery and buy me a cookie or a pie.

      Thanks for checking out my post Rachel,
      Hope you had a great hot holiday with your family,
      Take care!

    2. Hi Anna,

      Thank you for the lovely message! We are having a wonderful holiday time together. It is so nice to spend quality time with each other and to have the chance to blog with great students, like you. Both Mark and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts and blogging with you. It is so much fun to learn more about you and to share this journey together.

      I can certainly remember my mom following my sister (Leigh) and I out the door in the mornings, calling out to us to come back and eat a healthy breakfast. Leigh wasn't much of a morning person so she really didn't like eating before school. It drove my mom crazy!

      Keep up with the great posts, Anna. Mark and I are looking forward to reading your next blog already!


  2. Hi Anna,

    I haven't had pancakes in ages. I'm in desperate need of some! haha!

    When I lived in South Korea I ate rice, kimchi, and egg for breakfast. Have you ever had kimchi? It is like spicy cabbage. It isn't great at first, but once you get used to it, it's amazing.

    Kia kaha, keep up the great work. See you next time!


    1. Thanks Mark,

      I really love reading your comments,
      Also no I haven't eaten kimchi but I think I wouldn't like it because I hate spicy thing but thanks for asking me but I do not know if I like cabbage. I would love to go to South Korea. But what is it like to be there?

      Thank you for commenting on my blog posts, Hope you loved it like I did. It is really fun to post stuff but at school when I first heard of this I thought it is going to be boring. Also when my big brother who goes to Tamaki College when he saw my me blogging he is like " What the, Anna why are you blogging it is so boring and any ways it's a holiday, so relax." But I did not care because it is very fun. And if I won a prize I will show off the prize I got and tell him " See this is what you get if you blog, he will be so jealous.

      Thank you Mark.

      P.S sorry I am such in a rush BYE!!!!

    2. Hi Anna,

      No worries about the rush of life! Haha, I hope you can prove to your bother that this is really interesting. Your mind is still very curious about the world which is really excellent!

      When I lived in Seoul, South Korea it was very fun. I made lots of friends, both other foreigners and locals, and I traveled around to different places in the country. It could be quite hard if you don't know anyone, but if you are friendly and not afraid to talk to foreigners on the train then you'll make friends in no time. The first friend I made was an Australian guy I met on the train, and he introduced me to his friends, and then suddenly I had lots of friends! The culture is very interesting too. Quite polite, but everyone goes out to dinner a lot with their friends or workmates. One fun thing is when everyone "cheers" - they all talk about how old everyone is and then the oldest person puts their cup higher than the others, and the next oldest person a little lower down, and the next person lower, all at the same time!

      The best parts about living there was the food, how cheap everything is, and the public transport is really, really good. I also really enjoyed my job. There are also lots of things to do, from simple things like shopping, to visiting temples and hiking mountains, to swimming down in Busan or Jeju Island. Korea both has a really hot summer and a really cold, snowy winter.

      Glad you're enjoying the journey!


  3. Thanks Mark,

    I am glad you replied to my comment. It is really cool how you made friends in just a sec, I never can do that because when ever I am new to a place I am really shy but when you commented on my first blog post about the journey. It was scary because I didn't know you that much but now that you keep on commenting on my blog post, now I know you only a little bit. But it is really cool how you think about my post and also I like it when you always comment on my blog and you always leave a ha ha, which is quite funny.

    Thank you Mark,
    For commenting on my blog. Thank you for leaving positive feedback about my learning during the holidays. Thank you for everything, Thank you for making this program for little kids just like me and now during school I know what I am doing on my blog which is so fun.

    Have a great holiday!

  4. No worries, Anna. Rachel is the one that deserves most of the credit. Thank you for thanking us. It makes Rachel and I very happy. It is part of our job to comment, but we really like making you guys happy and as teachers, it makes us feel better that you are keeping your minds sharp by reading, writing, and researching in the holidays.

    On another note, it actually took me 5 weeks of catching the train to summon the courage to talk to someone. If I can do it, you can too.

    We will enjoy the rest of the holidays for sure.


  5. Thanks Mark,

    Hope you are having are great holiday with your family and friends. How many times do meet up with Rachel anyway? I can't wait for school to happen because I am a year seven this year, which is so exciting. Also excited to meet my friends. Hope you can have fun teaching your class this year.



  6. Hi Anna,

    I work with Rachel all the time. I am sitting next to her as I write this haha! She is very nice isn't she.

    I also can't wait for school to start. I taught English in Korea for 2.5 years, then I studied for one year (last year) and then this year is my first year having my own class and my own students in New Zealand! It is super exciting! I can't wait either!

    Thanks : )


  7. Hi Mark,

    So are you saying that this is your first time teaching in New Zealand. What school are you teaching? Also so does that mean Rachel can see what you are doing the whole time.


    1. Hi Anna,

      I'm not sure if I can tell you which school I am teaching at yet because the contract is still being processed. I can tell you it is near Mangere.

      Rachel can indeed see what I am doing at all times, and gets alerts when I comment, but it is not like when I was at school and my mum would watch me to make sure I was working. Rachel has her own work to do too. As an adult we're expected to just do as best we can, and we do. There's another teacher here too who is doing another set of schools. We might crossover sometime.
