My First Cubs Camp (2012)

My First Cub Camp

Friday 25\5\2012


I am\was very excited; this is my first cub camp and luckily my friends are going too.
On the way there I sat next to friends.
Also the van we were in broke down when (I think) we were still on the highway and we had to wait till the police came, they stopped the traffic and helped pull us to this place where there were lots of police cars and we had to wait at least an hour  before another van came to take us to the camp site.


When we finally got there our tents had already been put up and we ate pasta.

First Night

I wasn't that sad of having no mum near me and I had my toy panther so I slept quite well, though I woke up once to hear my friends snoring!

Saturday 26\5\2012

First Morning

We got dressed without showering then had our breakfast.

Early Day

That day we did fires and we were bad at that.

Later on

  1. Rock climbing (some one's hat was put on top of the structor and they had to climb up to get it down).
  2. Fun thing like sledging. We used these wooden things that we sat in and there were paths with bumps on them and when the sledges were released we'd go whooshing down the paths. 
  3. Shower and reading.


There was a big campfire for all scouts at the campsite and we sung camp-song led by three different men. I wanted my family.

Sunday 26\5\2012

We built rafts in groups of four and sale them on a lake and swam in the lake and my groups one was the only one that didn't fall apart. We went home that day.

The End

Crouch End Fun Run on the 19th of May

A FEW months ago me and my sister took part in the Crouch End Fun Run, which is a race anyone can take part in except you have to sign up in advance.
When I told someone about it the thought I had said "Crouch And Fun Run" instead of the place Crouch End along with the words Fun Run.
You also get this really cool letter, that makes you feel important, in it is your race number and, a thing to put on your shoe that records the time you took you to do the race in (I took 9mins; ? seconds.).
My dad gave me comprehension about the information in the letter (if I find them and get enough comments asking me I'll post the questions and answers, I will).
The race is every year, I have done it once before, look it up.
I don't know what to write...

Anyway; after the race you get a drink, a bottle of water, a shirt saying Crouch End Fun Run on it, a jam doughnut (I don't like jam so my sister ate my doughnut) and first of all a medal (everyone gets a medal), Jamziez (a nick-name for my sister) knew one of the people who handed out the medals, from her swimming class.
At the race I met someone I know from cubs (scouts for younger kids), they looked very stressed:)
The race was really hard even though I had practiced before, I think that the reason why it was so hard running was because of my asthma:(

So thats all really...

Annoying sentence for children below.

Have you ever done a race? Was it hard? Post in the comments below!

I mean like sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really sorry about not posting a post when I said I would:( I have neglected my blog for more than 6 months!!!! Has anybody used the rendang recipe? I doubt it... Anyway I did a race about 6 months ago and now I have going to post a dairy entry about it on this blog...

Poker Comprehension

Hello, a long time ago (last year?) my dad gave me some comprehension on an article about poker.

Why don't you try answering the questions yourself?

Here are the questions:

1. Why is it important to be expressionless when playing poker?

2. What were the three types of video clip shown to the study participants?

3. Explain the difference between positive, negative and neutral/no correlation. If necessary use encyclopaedia or children's online dictionary.

4. What did people notice about the way the players moved their hands that gave away whether the player was confident; or not?

Here are my answers:

  1. So that people can not guess that value of your cards.
  2. The first kind was of the table up, the second kind was of the face and the third of the of only the hands and arms.
  3. Don't know, will ask dad later.
  4. If you moved your hands smoothly forward without hesitating it means that you have a good hand\cards.

Rendang for Both Vegetarians and Carnivores

Yummy Rendang Recipe\Diary Entry

Today (5\3\2013) my mum taught how to make rendang
 But, before I tell you how to make it, you have to know what it is: it is a slow cooked curry\stew (about 4-3hrs),  a

"traditional dish of West Sumatra. It was probably developed out of the need to preserve the meat from a newly killed buffalo for as long as possible in a tropical climate with no refrigerators.
The meat was cut into chunky cubes, then boiled in large pots, not in water, but in spiced coconut milk, which slowly penetrated the meat and incidentally gave it a delicious flavour.
 Rendang is traditionally eaten with sticky rice cooked in coconut milk, or with lemang, the same sticky rice but cooked in a bamboo segment. It is just as good, however, with plain boiled rice."

Of course you don't need to use buffalo! Instead use cow or chicken (which cooks faster) and if your a vegetarian use jack fruit.

Serves 2-3


  1. 500g beef, two *chicken breasts, or two cans green of **jack fruit.
  2.  Twelve shallots
  3. Two onions
  4. 2inches\4cm Galanggal
  5. 1inch\2cm Ginger
  6.  Three stems lemon grass
  7. Two cloves of garlic
  8.  Tons of coconut cream/milk
  9.  A teaspoon and a half of brown sugar
  10.  Something sour \ lemon \ tamarind (asam jawa) or asam keping
  11. Mums version has a ton of red chillies
  12.  Salt according taste


First cut up the shallots and onions to a fair size then blender-ise them along with the red chilies, garlic, galanggal and ginger. Then place the all the things that you had put in the blender, in a wok along with enough oil to cover the contents and more. Wash the meat or chicken or drain the jack fruit. Cut the meat roughly into cubes and add them along with the the rest of the ingredients and salt. Alternate in between reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and stirring the rendang for 3-4hrs. The meat fries in the coconut cream while everything is evaporated.

Serve hot with warm rice... Enjoy

*This cooks faster

**For the vegetarians

A Story I Did While I Was Bored

"Hey how're ya' all feelin'? up ta' fun?" Said my best pall Jonathan Josiph Jolliparton but who liked to get called 'Juds'  which I think is really weardo-so but, thats just him! Any way he was talking to me and my 'gang' who were basiclly my bestest friends well there were 5 of us including him and me and we called our selfs 'Weirdo One 5' and the name suits it self (well it IS wierd). One of my other friends Janis Horph Watlam (but want's to get called Jnodo because she onece met a really girly girly-girl who was called Janis) said " Sure, we're 'll fine I thin', so what shall we do?"
 "Well maybe we should go to the forest and jump over the stream and I saw some deer hoof-prints that we can try to find okay" I said which reminds me to tell me you my name which is Patilian Porph Smith but I like to get called Liana because it is a nice name (of course)!

If there is anyone still looking at my blog, please can give tips in comments about what should happen next in the story. It is very bad 'cause I made it up on the spot sometime in 2012. I have made a few corrections and added bits in but please tell me is there are any spelling errors..!

P.S. Sorry about all the slang-ish things\words.

Petrie Plates\Growing Bacteria Updated

I am putting some pictures on (there are a ton) and I hope that if you have done some your Plates have sprouted things as well as Printer Thing and Kitchen Window. I think that the reason why Toilet Door Handle was the worst is because people have just washed there hands before the leave, for Kitchen Floor maybe the floor had just been mopped! Well don't really know what to write, here are the pictures:

Petri Plates\Growing Bacteria Experiment

There are two kinds of my entry, the top one is slangish (Yo bro, innit fun, wassup!, innit blood) and the bottom
one is more what my Dads expectation is.

A longish time ago I want'ed t' do an experiment but it took ages to find one and when Dad finally did I had to nag him for ages and ages and ages and ages and ages and ages and ages and ages and ages since like the 6th until we finally got round to doing it. We have started doing the Homemade Petri Plates experiment but I don't know whether we have done it well so far. Well basically the experiment is making bacteria grow so you can see it.

 You do this mixture of a stock cube, plain gelatine or agar agar, water and sugar and put it at the bottom of disposable containers put it in the fridge or somethin' and well after an age take it out and rub the um... bacteria on and wait another age until you can see the bacteria and... ya.  Just in case you do, don't try this recipe because I was tired and definitely got some of the things wrong so these are two websites that definitely got it right: and

Quite a time ago I wanted to do an experiment but it took a very long time to find one and when Dad finally did I had to nag him for a really, really long time probably since the 6th until we finally got round to doing it. We have started doing the Homemade Petri Plates Experiment or Growing Bacteria Experiment but I don't know whether we have done it well so far. Well the experiment is making bacteria grow so you can see it.

Mix together a stock cube, plain gelatine or agar agar, water and sugar and put it at the bottom of disposable containers. Put it in the fridge and after a long time take it out and rub the bacteria on. Wait another long time until you can see the bacteria and that's that.  Just in case you do, don't try this recipe because I was tired and definitely got some of the things wrong so these are two websites that definitely got the things correct: and


On Monday (GUY FAWKES DAY 2012) I went to my sisters and my friends house she gave me a Jacqueline Wilson official mag which has lots of extras witch include an extra magazine with lots of recipes we (which means my sister and I) cooked a basic cookie mix with melted chocolate in the shape of a muddy paw print. We did two batches the first had 90% cocoa chocolate (but my sister added some sugar) the second batch had chili chocolate but most of the cookies went without chocolate. I did a few biscuits with faces insted of paw-prints. To make the paw prints you used the ball of your thumb as the big paw pad and you use the back of your wooden spoon for the (I wrote 'I dont k' but erased it) small bits so basically you make the holes using those things put in oven to bake for about fifteen minutes. If ready take out then do press the holes again this time instead of putting your thumb use the back of a teaspoon then use some chocolate to drip in the holes.

This has been in drafts for an age!

Sushi: 'mmmmmm'

Today me my mum and sister decided to make sushi, well actually we decided to make a few days ago so we got the ingredients and made it today. Do you like Sushi, well I do :) Soon after we woke up we started cooking the rice, I had to shower which was kind of good because I did not have to wait for the boring bits to be done while mum nagged me :) When I had finally gotten out of the shower most of the things were ready except the salmon, tuna, carrot and (or?) seaweed. I cut the salmon and carrot, put the mayonnaise in the tuna and for fun made ridges in the cucumber. The two things that my sister (J Milly) and mum (Z\Zed) found\looked for while I was in the shower are seaweed and the sushi mat. I liked salmon and tuna topping-ed sushi more than the chicken flavoured ones.  What sushi do you like? I am writing this like an email aren't I? J Milly is awesome at making sushi but my Mum is better.
