On Saturday we celebrated a 90th birthday were the whole of Tamaki P.I.P.C  church were invited. The theme was Pink, my family and I arrived at the church car park and it was very packed. Loud music coming from the hall, you could feel the ground vibrate as soon as you walk into the hallway. Two young, beautiful girls were standing at the entrance with lays in their hands giving them to the elderly's that walked into the Pink dreamy hall. “ Let us begin with a prayer and carry on with the program ” a deep voice comes from the speaker.

“ May the Lord bless Petu Tulua with many more blessed years to come. Amen ” the minister said. The entertainer welcomed people and introduced a famous Samoan singer, Joe Failua. He sung two of his famous songs that people know well. While Joe was singing, people were videoing his performance and the family were seating up the food. Tables were pulled out for the pig and off people went.

A grace was said before we ate and off people went getting their food, plates and bowls were taken into the kitchen and desert's were coming and being put onto the tables. First of all the head table was served. Then after dessert was served the tables were taken away and kids from the family did a Siva Samoa and then ladies from church performed a dance to the Birthday girl. 

Being in the hall was just like having valentines all over again. But it was not cool because I had to go to Manukau for a family business. I was thankful to be at a 90th birthday in my whole ENTIRE life.

What I learnt in Maths

I have learnt to solve addition fraction involving different denominators and simplifying the fractions.
1/4 + 2/8 =
1 x 8 = 8 = 1/8
4 x 2 = 8 = 1/8
1/4 becomes a 1/8 and 2/8 stays the same. So therefore 1/8 + 2/8 = 38

German people are very nice and comforting people,they bring people into their house if they need a place to stay for a couple of nights, and they are very fair people. They love to help others and share their belongings with other people. Germans let their friends use their belongings and expect it to come back in perfect conditions.
Germans love visiting the Berlin wall, they are tall people and love their culture. In Germany their religions are very important to them. Germans love celebrations and alcohol. They usually eat sausages and love their meat. Germans love going to the museum and the Berlin theatre. Every year they roll out the red carpet and watch over 400 films and celebrate the Berlin wall that kept them between the cold world war.

Germans have passion for their food, the most popular saying in Germany is “ Breakfast like and emperor, lunch like a beggar’. A typical German breakfast includes a selection of breads, cereals, cheese and meats.  Fish is eaten in the north. Immigrants have also brought their cuisine to the country. Asian, Italian and Turkish restaurants can be found in most cities.  German people are also good bike riders, they manage to look elegant whilst free-wheeling down  cobbled streets. They are also highly at dept riding with umbrellas.  Germans can ride without any hands and are known for their good bike skills. Germans are really good at anything they do but if they are not good at it, they would try their very hardest to get any better at it.  German people can speak proper English then English people.

Germans do not appreciate the rude finger when driving. If you give it to a fellow driver, that driver reserves the right to report you and your license plate and you will get a fine. Germans seem to enjoy camping and staying out of their houses. Germans actually respect quiet time on Sundays, when they vacuum, use lawn mowers or other loud objects and generally keep it at a low level of noise.
