A big blue piece of gum circling outer space, but someone steps on it and it has grass on it. Two days later it snows. Tranquil, lilliputian, gloomy, forlorn.


Taste the World: Bian’s new restaurant concept November 4, 2011

Welcome to my new restaurant where we serve snails, homemade mac & cheese, and Swedish meatballs, all from recipes from my mom and grandma. I know a lot of people don’t like snails but I tink you should try them. In fact, this whole restaurant is about trying new foods.

The first you come in you get a free drink and dessert.

Speaking of desserts, we offer French éclaires and Vietnamese sweet pudding called chè. We also serve Swedish linzer cookies and Swedish pancakes.

I think you are thinking, “Why is it called ‘Taste the World'”? Well, it’s because many countries offer different foods and we want you to try them.

The people who work here are from different countries and they bring different foods to our restaurant; they also help with the decorations to make it seem like you are eating in that country.

And please visit TASTE THE WORLD.

(Oh, and try, try, TRY new foods!)

feet below the beautiful sun
I want to explore the Atlantic Ocean
to find a new and weird animal
below the sea.
I also want to find
D.N.A. of an animal that lived
sooooooo long ago but first I will
finish 4th grade.

Maybe I will be the first lady to do that.

Mimi the lamb

Poppy is my stuffed animal. She is an Australian Shepherd and I
think she is a little bit of Corgi because of her ears. I got her on my
birthday. She is an a Webkinz; a Webkinz is a stuffed animal that you can play
with online.

Now I bring her everywhere. Mimi a lamb that is a stuffed animal
that I love so much and Poppy and Mimi are sisters. My friend Poppy

I also made a collar for her with my grandma; I sewed it all
together. I even took her camping with me. She is My FAVORITE animal ever.
