Are there any other languages you wish you could speak?

Standard

You know sometimes, when you go traveling and you hear all these different languages which kinda sound cool? It happens to me in my school sometimes.

Well, I already know quite a many languages for my age. Don’t you agree?:

  1. Finnish, which is my mother tongue
  2. English, which I can speak really well too, they always think I’m a 1st language speaker, they sometimes think it’s my mother tongue 😛 (I go to an english speaking school, I’m in the high english group, and also am writing this blog in english)
  3. Spanish, which I started learning at school at the beginning of year 7. And I’m not sure of this, but I think I’m  one of the top students in my class (I have a proof for this: my test result, the 2nd best in the class, 97%, highest 98%)
  4. Arabic, and this is my weakest. I can have conversations in Arabic and for my last test I got 60/60, but of course, I have A LOT I still haven’t learned!!!

I think it’s nice to know many languages and I’m open to learn more,  like let’s say Italian. I know like maximum of 10 words right now 😛

Are there any other languages you wish you could speak?

This is just some examples of my finnish, spanish and arabic:

Moi, miten menee? Tää on vaan tällänen näyte, näytän vaan pari lausetta suomeks.

Hola! Me llamo Polished Kiwi. Cómo te llamas? Qué tal? Estoy fenomenal! Cuál es tu cumpleaños? De dónde eres? Soy de Finlandia.

Marhaban! Ana ismi Polished Kiwi. Kaifa halik? Ana jaieda aidan. Hal toheb al arabia? Naam, ana oheb al arabia.                  (I’m sorry I couldn’t write the arabic in actual arabic letters, but I don’t have them on my laptop)

So what languages you wish you could speak?

Celebrating Eid Al Adha with my family

Standard

Hi everyone! In here, there’s a week’s holiday right now, although there’s not much of it left(*edit, over!). Of course for some people it ended today (*edit, ended already!), but mine is still going 😛 We celebrated the Eid by going to Ras Al Khaimah. I took lots of pictures to show you, and for my relatives and friends in Finland who’s english is not enough good to  understand everything, I think (in the future, pictures) a little translation will do. So, to get on with my post, I will start.

We left on the 5th (of November of course) with our whole family. So we had to take the Land Rover. The drive was about  3 hours, and finally we arrived at the hotel (we took the longer way, with better landscape :P). My mom booked the hotel online, and it didn’t have any rating, but it turned out to be a nice place anyway. It was called Greek Plaza.

Lähettiin tossa 5. päivä (tätä kuuta tietty xD) koko perheen kanssa pienelle Eid Al Adha lomalle. Joten otettiin Land Rover :). Matka kesti noin 3h, ja sitten vihdoin oltiin hotellilla (otettiin maisema reitti :P). Äitini varasi hotellin netistä eikä siellä näkynyt arviota, mutta se oli yllättävän hyvä! 🙂 Sen hotellin nimi oli Greek Plaza.

On that day we were supposed to go to Oman, but because it would’ve cost 35dhs each, we didn’t want to go, as we would only have stayed for maximum of 2 hours. So we just drove around the city and ate at this (at first weird looking) place, can’t remember the name. The food was actually really tasty! My favourites were the bread (yes, normal arabic bread, but it tasted somehow SOOOO much better!) the chicken biryani (kinda say it like buriani) and the chicken tikka. We were there for a really long time, ‘coz it took a long time before we got the food! A minus for that 😉 From there we headed to a mall, and after that to the hotel.

Some desert :)

Some desert 🙂

Sinä päivänä meiän piti viel mennä Omaniin, mutta koska se olisi maksanut 35dhs per henki, ei menty koska oltas oltu siellä enintään vaan 2h. Joten sitte siellä ajeltiin ympäri R.A.K.:aa. Siellä päätettiin löytää joku hyvä ruokapaikka. Törmättiin sellaseen vähän epämääräsen näköseen ravintolaan -joka olikin tosi hyvä! Se ruoka oli ihanaa ❤ Varsinki se Arabic Bread vaikka se oli ihan vaan normii, pelkkää arabic breadia xDDD No ainoo huono puoli oli että kesti aika kauan ennen kun se ruoka tuli…

The next day we went to Dream Land, this nice waterpark -wait, made a mistake there: USUALLY nice waterpark. Ya wanna know why this time wasn’t pleasent at all? There were a lot of families, all from a specific country, but I’m sorry I don’t wanna put it here. Everyone would probably judge me racist. So, there were A LOT of them, and you know what? A giant wave pool, was just filled with them! I tried to go in but I have to say -in the middle of the day you just couldn’t. WAY too crowded. Otherwise it was nice 🙂

Seuraavana päivänä mentiin vesipuistoon jonka nimi oli Dream Land. Tosi mukava paikka-YLEENSÄ. Nimittäin tällä kertaa koko paikka oli valitettavasti täynnä….no, ibtualaisia. Muutin tosta pari kirjainta, etten loukkaisi… Mutta, siellä oli siis PALJON niitä, joten ei se kamalan mukavaa sitten ollut. Yks allas oli näitä kyseisiä henkilöitä IHAN täynnä. Muuten ihan mukavaa 🙂 

Now, the next day, we were supposed to go to Dream Land again, this time with different company. But as the family was local, we couldn’t go with ’em anymore (the minute we told ’em that it was crowded with *ubsupba* they had to cancel 😦 So we didn’t go. Instead we decided to leave early, so that we would be back in home in Al Ain earlier. One of the things we stopped at ( for a long time) was at a mall, were we saw a reeeeally lovely shop, called Eye Candy. Guess what bags it had? Guess! ❤ OMG they were amazing! Of course we bought some bags -two actually. Enough of that ;D That’s pretty much it. Oh, one more thing:

There was a huge traffic jam on the way home:

The Traffic Jam...

And here's the traffic jam on the way home..

Lovely 😛

Seuraavana päivänä sitten piti mennä Dream Land’iin uudestaan, mutta eilisen perusteella ei oikein huvittanut. Ja muutenkin meiän kaa oli tulossa yks arabialainen perhe, ja kun ne kuuli tästä niin ei ne enää halunnu tulla. No päätettiin sitten vaan lähteä illan sijasta aamulla takasin kotiin. Pysähyttiin khyllä yhdessä aikas ihanassa mallissa: siel oli Eye Candy, Guess!!! Guessin laukkujaaaaa!! PUOLEEN HINTAAAAAAAN AAAAARGH! No sieltä tarttu pari (eli siis 2) laukkua mukaan…. 😉 Siitä tarpeeks xD Siellä käytiin kanssa Stabucksis, mulle strawberry cheesecake. EI, se EI MAISTUNUT yhtään juustolle. En ois muuten ottanu sitä, sillä en voi sietää juustoa 😛 Sitten vielä yks juttu:

Kotiin tullessa siellä oli jätti ruuhka! Tos ylhäällä on kuva. Ihanaa. Mutta se siitä lomasta, moro! ❤

That’s it for this trip, hopefully more posts like this comin’ soon ❤

Kuvahaaste (picture challenge)

Standard

Sain tän haasteen Sonnelta, kiitos erittäin paljon 🙂 (Thank you so much Sonne, for giving me this challenge^^)

1. Avaa neljäs kansio, jossa säilytät kuviasi. (Open the 4th folder were you have your pics)

2. Avaa neljäs kuva ja julkaise se blogissasi. (Open the 4th pic and publish it in your blog)

3. Selitä kuva. (Explain the pic)

4. Haasta neljä muuta bloggaajaa tekemään sama. (Challenge 4 other bloggers to do the same)

Mutta, neljännessä kansiossa ei ollut mitään, joten menin kolmanteen kansioon. Valitettavasti en voi käyttää neljättä kuvaa (kuvassa minä…en halunnu laittaa sitä tänne_D) joten otin sitten sen ekan kuvan niitten photobooth kuvien jälkeen 😀 No tässä se nyt on:

Some problems with this thing…

Standard

I haven’t done anything, just made a new post, and now it is all weird looking, (my blog) I dunno if you guys have the same thing. I’ll try if making another post will fix the problem. As it is supposed to show the newest post first when you just go to my blog, it shows the title “introducing Polished Kiwi’s hobby…” and it’s on the right, so everything in my sidebar is now at the bottom of my page….What? Well, I’ll try fixing this, sorry guys!
