Food Explanation


My family always goes big when it comes to weddings. At the wedding we always have some traditional food. Sometimes the people getting married would allow children at their wedding. We always make sure that the food is out to the people in time, so that there are no complaints. Some of the food we have at weddings are traditional tongan foods like pig, roast lamb, roast pork, we also have otai (Fruit Drink).

Whenever we have a wedding my family always makes sure that we have otai. I like the way my nana makes it, because she adds in mango, pineapple, watermelon. She makes it in a big container, so that there would be enough for everyone. A lot of people always love my nana’s otai. One of the other traditional foods we have is, puaka (Pig).

Pig is a traditional food we have at special events. My dad, grandpa, uncle, and some family friends, always cook the pig by hand. Whenever we have a big wedding, everyone asks “Where is the pig?”, it is that important. While people are getting their food, there is always someone cutting the pig at the same time. Sometimes when the children are allowed at the wedding they have food that the little kids can eat.

Since children are allowed at the wedding, there would always be food that little kids can eat. They would say “Kids that are 12 and over, pass as an adult, and if you are under that you are a kid”. Some of the foods they have are, Chop Suey, Chinese Food, Finger Food, and things like that. They love having kids over, but sometimes they only allow the family kids.

My Family always makes sure that every wedding we go to or host is the best wedding that anyone has been to. These are some of the foods that we always have at a wedding. My Favourite is the Otai. My Family always goes big when it comes to our family weddings.

Isabella - My Favourite Movie

Dawn of the planet of the apes  

Have you ever seen apes riding horses? Well in their world they rule everyone around them. These apes are very special, they look like humans, they act like humans, and believe it or not, they can talk.

I couldn’t believe they could talk. The leader of the apes is Caesar, he is the strongest out of all of them. He can talk to humans but when they talk to each other they do sign language. They can speak very clearly and they can understand humans. They also look like humans because on their mouth it looks like someones hand print. This is a good movie because it is rated 13+ and if you like a movie that is science fiction, thriller, drama, and action film then this would be a very good and they bring the movie alive with all the drama.

My favourite character was Maurice he isn’t the the main character, but he shows in most parts of the movie. He is different because he is an orangutan and the others are apes. In one of the scenes he is in trapped in a cage by Koba, he breaks through the cage and helps saves the day.  Also the other characters are Caeser (the leader), Koba (bad ape), Ash (son of Caesar), they are the main apes and the humans are Malcolm, Ellie, and Alexander they are the only humans that help the apes. They make this movie one of the best.

That is why my favourite movie is ‘Dawn of the planet of the Apes’. I have watched other movies and this one was the best one. I thought that the producers of this movie, made it more attractive with apes, humans, war, life and family. I hope that there will be another part for this movie.
