Today, I went to Costco at the Sunshine Coast with my host family’s mum and daughter. She is a good driver and is very friendly. It was a long drive. The weather was lovely today and not too cold. There are many different things sold in Costco, for example, appliances, furniture, clothes, meat, fresh vegetables and cakes. I was especially surprised that the vegetables were in a cold room. I think that is the way they keep it fresh. Also, I was surprised to find a big teddy bear that was as big as me. It was very crowded.
Next I went to another shopping mall called “Westfield” and ate Yakisoba there. My host Mother bought us each a Cha Time (milk tea). It was yummy. I had yakisoba for lunch but found it different from Japanese Yakisoba, but it was still delicious. Surprisingly, my host mother bought me a jigsaw puzzle as she knows I like doing puzzles. I was very glad, so I have been working on the jigsaw puzzle since I arrived in Brisbane.
For dinner tonight we had Macaroni and cheese and Roast chicken. We also had ice cream and custard on cakes for dessert. I would have liked it better if we had some more vegetables. After dinner, I was feeling very tired but continued to work on the new puzzle until 11 P.M. and then finally went to bed.

I went to shopping today. My host mother said that we would go shopping with two students. The two students were Reina and Taifu. I was very surprised but happy.
At the shopping center, I wanted to buy a speaker, but I didn’t buy it because I didn’t have any time. When I go to shopping center next, I will buy it. We had lunch at McDonald’s.
Tomorrow, we will go school. I want to enjoy the classes.

We had ESL classes all day.
In the morning, I painted a picture on a boomerang. It was difficult, but I enjoyed it very much. I didn’t throw it, but I’d like to try it. I also played rugby and basketball again today. I was taught how to rotate the ball, but it was difficult and I couldn’t do it very well.Today was my birthday, so my host family celebrated it with me.I ate ice cream cake and sweets at night and got a present for my birthday.
It was an awesome day!!!!
