The Amazing Papa!


Lovable. The dictionary defines it as someone or something that is easy to love because of their amazing qualities. Who in your life is lovable? For me, my grandpa comes in mind! But, since saying grandpa makes my grandpa feel old, I get to call him papa! 

Papa is lovable because of his amazing qualities. One of those amazing qualities is being full of fun and games! He even has a silly nickname for me, Ichibane! Which means my #1 in Japanese, according to him. Plus, he never seems to get tired of me laughing in pain. Oh, that guy always tickles me till my tummy aches! Papa always has a huge smile on his face!

Knowing my papa, whenever we visit him, I already know what he’ll be wearing! He’ll be wearing clothes, cowboy style! He’s always got a giant cowboy hat with a checkered shirt and khaki pants. But, you can never forget his suspenders. He’d also be sitting in his giant red recliner that’s right in front of the T.V. which is where he makes me lie down so he can tickle me! But I usually see him relaxing in that recliner.

Besides acting and wearing silly stuff, I know for sure my papa is hardworking. When he isn’t snoring in the living room, he is outside building something out of old objects. For example, my dad said he turned an old fridge into a grill and he filled a coffee container with coins to make a dumb bell! Either that, or he is at work taking care of elderly people. That’s right, my papa isn’t that old yet, even though he already has to take off his teeth and place it in a cup of water before he goes to bed.

My papa is always silly and hardworking, which makes him papa! But don’t worry! He is still alive! The only problem is that he’s living on the other side of the world! But no matter the distance, he’ll always be my Ichiban! 


A Funny Competition

Guess what? I am starting a competition! The competition is all about being funny and having fun. The goal is to be the funniest. Whoever can make the best and funniest joke wins! I want it to be hilarious!

Here is one of my jokes:
Why do seagulls fly over the sea?

A: Because if they flew over the bay they would be called bagels!

I can’t wait to see who the true jokester is! Good luck and have fun!

My Random Acts of Kindness Reached China!


Guess what? In China, a third grade class from Canadian International School of Beijing (C.I.S.B) has read my blog! I am very elated I was able to inspire them in a positive way for they have read my random acts of kindness and wanting to do it themselves.

I used to go to C.I.S.B so I know how wonderful that school is. The class has been learning about blogging so the teacher, Mrs. McCallum, together with her class interviewed me on Skype. I was asked such intelligent questions. So I’m sure they will be able to have a very nice blog of their own.

They were able to go around the school spreading random acts of kindness. Some of the kind things they’ve done are putting some goodies in teachers’ mailboxes and making sure they use kind words to each other. To read more about what this third grade class is doing, click the link towards the end of my post.

Can you imagine if we can spread kindness all over the world?

G3 McCallum’s class with “12 Days of Kindness”



Random Act of Kindness #12

Every Sunday I go to church. At the church, there is an area where you can light a candle,   make a wish or say your prayer, but you have to make an offering to do that. I know that other people love to light candles but not have any money. So, as a random act of kindness, I left a bag that contained $1 and a note. It said “Light a candle and say your prayer. Please enjoy this random act of kindness.”




I started my random act of kindness on 12/12/12. Today is my 12th random act of kindness, it is the day before Christmas Eve. I hope, somehow, I was able to inspire some of you to do some random acts of kindness. May the spirit of Christmas be with you all throughout the year.
