Two Reasons Why I Went To…

This summer I went to hot, humid, tropical Indonesia. Now it doesn’t sound that bad. The reason that I love staying there are the people and how everyone is so much closer with one another. My sister, Mom and I went to Indonesia ( Belitung and Jakarta) for two reasons. Number one reason is family. We have about 40 to 55 relatives in Indonesia and each time i visit( last time was 3 years ago) there is always somebody new to the family. The second reason is Lebaran. Lebaran is a 1 month holiday .  At the 6 am in the morning at beginning of the month we eat before fasting, it’s called saour. The mornings and afternoons are slow because everyone is so hungry. At night it’s the best because at 6pm we invite all our relative ( the ones we’re close with) and have a gigantic feast celebrating another day of fasting. We do it every night and everyday. Than when it’s a few days before the actual Lebaran, we all visit our neighbors, family and friends. We knock on they’re door and say “I’m sorry for everything i have ever done to harm you” and they give you Indonesian cookies, sweets and money. Back to the night. Many of my second cousins come and play with me… i little too ruff. They are in the range of 1 to 6 so they are to young to understand. My sister would be on my one leg and Andean ( my 3 year old girl 2nd cousin) would be on the other. The four boys would tug on my arm like tug a war to see who can get me to the kitchen or living room. So everyday was a riot, i loved it and loved seeing them again.

Where it is- Indonesia is a country in southern Asia and Oceania 13,466 islands and 33 provinces with over 238 million people. It is the world’s fourth most populous country, and has the world’s largest population of Muslims. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and Malaysia. Other neighboring countries include Singapore, Philippines, Australia, and the Indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Indonesia’s location on the edges of the Pacific, Eurasian, and Australian tectonic plates makes it the site of numerous volcanoes and frequent earthquakes. Indonesia has at least 150 active volcanoes.  ( info from Wikipedia)

Indonesia is the one that says Indonesia on the right hand side my apologies that it is not clear

My life

Hello my name is Sunita but most people call me Suni or Sun ( mostly Suni ). I am starting grade 8 and let me tell you it’s easier than it looks.The only problem is the hallways are always filled with people and I always feel so small compared to the grade 12 student; Kind of like a little canary in a cage with an Eagle. A bunch of Eagles… But, it’s not so scary as the television says. Every one here is so nice and the teachers are even nicer. I got confused with my schedule once,so i missed half of my social studies class. Good thing the teacher doesn’t expect us to remember our classes yet. Now enough with school. Let me tell you about my “After school life “. Well let’s start from the beginning. I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia( mom’s side) and stayed for about 5 years or so.Of course when you live some place with a different culture you learn their language, but as you can see i lost all of my ability to speak Indonesian. Tragic isn’t it? So instead I came to Canada ( my dad’s side) and learned French and English. When I was six I started to play softball in the house league and made great friends. When I turned 10 my dad made me tryout to become a pitcher and that’s when my whole life started to change. My dreams of becoming a princess were no more. Now, I want to get a scholar ship from pitching. I have a long ways ahead of me so i have to work hard. My dad always said “you don’t have to be  the brightest kid in the class but if you work hard you will always succeed”. So that is what I try to do .. work hard and earn my reward. I am now a competitive softball player in level A ( it’s kind of like school C, B, A). I am also a Competitive Trampolinist also A. It gives me determination and focus, for I have to do all those tricks without landing on my head. Talk about nerve racking!!!! When you’re a competitive, whatever, you learn to concentrate on what your going to do, then to think of the negative and worst case scenarios. Now that i have told you about my “busy bee” life I want to talk or present to you my biggest supporters my mom and dad. Maybe my sister little Maya too, but you can’t blame them they are just too young to understand what is right from wrong . Maya also does competitive things but different than mine and she is only 9!! You might say I’m jealous of her capability at such a young age. She is a competitive Artistic Gymnast not trampoline. Very many people get that mixed up, and she is also a competitive dancer. She pretty much is out of the house 16 hrs a day. Maya and I are lucky to have such supportive parents that help us with our gymnastics from going broke, and finds time in all this mess to practice my pitching. Believe it or not my parents also have a life of they’re own, but sadly with they’re world concentrating on us they never get alone for them selves. Mostly that is my life i will keep an update 🙂
