Adventure ship

Hey schoolmates, today I am going to interview Keyman from BIL5.

 

Here are the questions i am going to ask him.

 

  • How was it?
  • Was it fun?
  • Was it scary?
  • Did you like it?
  • Will you join again?

 

Here are his answers.

 

It was fun and scary. I enjoyed it, but, it was not that fun. Not as i expected. I don’t think i will join it again as it is not my interest. Let me tell you something, I jumped of the ship that was about seven meters!

It was insane. I think i don’t i want to join it again because it was scary.

Chinese New Year Traditional Food

There are many different kind of delicious Traditional food in Chinese New Year and you can also make them too!

There are Turnip Cake, Tong Yuen and for decoration, they will put potted shrubs to represent the lucky tree bearing, because this fruit is like a tangerine and it is mostly grown as a plant and they will also use yellow pomelos or maybe green pomelos to decorate their houses. So today I am going to teach you guys how to bake turnip cake.

          Recipe

For the Turnip cake you will need:

  • 6 ounces of Chinese bacon (lop yok), store bought or homemade
  • 1 large Chinese white turnip, about 2 pounds
  • 8 Chinese dried mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup Chinese dried shrimp, about 1 1/4 ounces
  • 2 teaspoons Shao Hsing rice cooking wine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups rice flour

First, you have to cut the Chinese bacon into small equal pieces and place it into a 9 inch heatable bowl.

At that instant, boil water in a pot and then put the bowl into the pot and turn the temperature to the medium heat and wait for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon becomes soft and has some juices from the bacon.

Formerly , you let the boil cool down.Peel the turnip into 41/2 cups and mix the turnip with 1 quarter of cold water (Drinking water) and boil them together ( In the boil) in low heat for 30 minutes or until it is not hard.

Soon after, put the mushroom in a medium bowl with water for 30 minutes ( soak the mushrooms with in the middle of cold and warm water, drinking water or tap water)or until it is soften.

Later, cut the fats of the bacon and slice it a little thinner than usual. Then fry the bacon over medium for 2 to 3 minutes.Then, add the rice wine, sugar and pan juice to the bacon and mix them all together and then remove the heat.

Afterwards, steam the cake for 1 hour or until if you think the texture is good (not to hard and not to hard but ok) let the cake cool down for 1 hour. After an hour pass cover the cake with wax paper and put it in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours. While you are waiting,

This part is optional, but if you want to, you may use a knife and cut the sides so it will be easy to take out. Then you can put the turnip cake in the fridge and take it out whenever you want to eat it, but don’t put the turnip cake in the fridge in the fridge to long like after 2 weeks, or else it will be expired.

Finally, when the time has come for you and your family to eat the turnip cake, you can fry the turnip cake for 2 to 3 minutes or until it is warm. After it is ready, you can finally eat it! So what are you doing there, get up and start baking!

Books Suggestion

From the Entertainment Desk

Hello, my name is Conrad. I am in charge of entertainment, I also have to do some book reports, so I hope you like the books that I suggest. Lilly has written a fantastic story that you can continue and Julia has found some cool music for you to dance while reading our newspaper.

P.1-P.2. I suggest the Geronimo Stilton books. They are hilarious, they always make me laugh and most of them have a good plot line, for example, “The Golden Statue Plot”, “Hunt for The Golden Book” and finally,”The Giant Diamond Robbery”. Hope you enjoy.

Diamond

P.3-P.4. I suggest, “The Phantom Tollbooth”. Yes,I know that this is a school book, BUT this book is the funniest and most upside down book ever! It takes everything that you know and twists it upside down, for example, what is the your idea of a spelling bee? or a whether man?

phantom

P.5-P.6. I suggest “The Fear”, this book is going to make you want to keep reading until the end. Imagine a world where everyone over 16 is a young, flesh-hungry, boiled mutant, Just so you know what you are about to read, a boy named Dognut goes to find his lost friends but he finds some other stuff as well.   

fear

I hope you enjoy these books. I’ve read all the books I suggested and WOW,  I did not expect half the things that happened in these books to happen and I hope you enjoy them as much I did.
