The Storm

At night I went to bed very early because the next day I had to wake up early to go to school. That was when this huge storm began and I couldn't sleep. I put my head under the blankets. I was a bit scared even though I'm not afraid of the dark. I roused out of bed and went to the window. Ghadeer came very disturbed. She couldn't sleep either.
''I'm afraid there's a big splattering storm going on here. Your hands are frozen ice, you should have enough blankets to sleep on,'' she said.

I prayed for myself to be safe. I once heard  the news that a flood had started in Dubai mall and the aquarium broke so they were getting it fixed. I tried to slumber in bed I couldn't. I didn't know what to do. I switched on the light of my bedroom, opened my wardrobe to take out my sweater. I put my sweater on and nuzzled in bed. I had to sleep because the next day I had to wake up early for school. The ferocious wind went on howling and the storm was getting bigger and bigger. There was a lot of glacial ice.

I was worried sick about Baba and Khamael. They were taking a walk in this icy storm. Khamael's phone was in her pocket and it was frozen after she took it out of her pocket. I felt gloomy when I heard this news about the flood water that had entered in Dubai mall. I also heard some more bad news. It was about an old woman. She was standing in the middle of this storm. She was heading to Global village and the gates had closed on her so she died much to my dismay. While the storm was hitting I felt so sorry for the people that are fixing the Dubai mall.

The next day at school everyone was talking about this huge storm that has just happened. Some of them thought it was an earthquake. But I was certain that they are wrong. I didn't correct them even though I'm the most clever in the class so the teacher did instead. Earthquakes don't ever happen in Dubai or Sharjah. Those kids are just saying that to be funny.

The Best Thing about my mom

Mother, mother, as yummy as pie.
Your smile is bright.
Your kiss makes me sigh.
Your teeth glistens like light.

Mother, mom, your cooking is great.
Your food is yummy.
Your chores, we hate.
We love the food you put in our tummy.

Your three daughters make your work light.
Your dress is yellow.
When you go out to parties.
You're always the good fellow.

Oh mother, you smell like heaven.
Because when you leave us we're sad.
We never like shopping but our hands work by helping.
Your love will make us mad!

The Ka'ba

The ka'ba is the house of Allah.
I can see lots of people wearing Ihram clothes. Inside the ka'ba, there's a sacred mosque where all people pray. In front of me, I can see a big black square whenever I pray. That's called the ka'ba. I can also see a gold thing called Maqam Ibrahim where I can see the footprints of Prophet Ibrahim. And a white circle called Hijir Ismail. In the Hijir Ismail, I can see some of the people praying there and I can also 'The Hajar Al Aswad'. We couldn't reach it because there were a lot of people so we couldn't squeeze through the crowd. Always around the ka'ba I can see a crowd doing Twaf.

I can hear people saying the takbirat Al Hajj and I can hear people praying and reading quran.

I can smell the perfume of the ka'ba and also the perfume of the Hajar Al Aswad. We have these perfumes.

My feelings towards the ka'ba is I feel like it's a dream and I also felt incredulous when I saw it. It was like I imagined it. I also felt very excited because I saw it on television and now it's right in front of me.

I touched the ka'ba for the first time and I couldn't believe it! After I touched it I looked at my hands and said to myself,''Oh my god, I can't believe I touched the ka'ba. First time in my life.''

The Piano Lady

The Characters Appearance
Suddenly there was a sound of classical music. The other lady looked up. A woman came in. She was holding a piano and she wore round black glasses, a red hat with roses and a reddish ribbon, a white scarf around her neck and a yellow sweater. She wore make-up and red lipstick. She was smiling a teeth smile.

The Characters in Action
The Unusual Competition
The phone rang. The piano lady answered it.
''Hello,'' she said.
''Hi Jenna, there's going to be a music competition coming up today at 5:30 pm. Those who play the best music will win a prize. If you want to win this competition please sign up,'' the other woman said.
''Should I bring my piano then?'' asked Jenna.
''Yes please, but you should sign up first,'' the woman said.
Three hours later, Jenna went to that competition. She placed her piano in a black plastic bag.
When she got there the competition had already began. She was a few minutes late.
She met a girl who was only 17 and she played the saxophone.
''Hi I'm Rose, nice to meet you,'' she said.
''I'm Jenna, nice to meet you too,'' said Jenna.
There was something unusual about this competition. Nobody was clapping or laughing. They had no reactions to the musicians and weren't encouraging them.

Rose's turn was next so she went to the stage and played her saxophone perfectly. Still no applause and no reactions. I've never seen anything like this before, they usually clap, what's wrong with these people?, Jenna thought. Rose's turn was done so she took a bow. Still nobody reacted. Jenna waited and waited till her turn was up. She looked at her watch. It was 7pm and her turn still wasn't up yet.
She went to the lady and asked her.
''I've been waiting for an hour and a half, when will my turn be up?'' she asked.
''Don't worry, you'll be up next in a few minutes time,'' replied the lady. So Jenna went back and waited. Nothing happened. The other man took a bow.
''This is so boring, I hate this competition, this other lady is so dumb. I've been waiting for almost an hour and she said my turn will up next and it still hasn't,'' Jenna said annoyed.
''I don't care I'm going to leave, this is so boring it will never end,'' Jenna went on, '' I couldn't have signed up for that stupid contest it's so tedious!''
At last, Jenna's turn was next so she played her piano very well but she did a little mistake and missed one note.

The competition ended finally but nobody won and got a prize. Rose had played her saxophone successfully she should've won this competition. The other man who took a bow played very perfectly the most so he still didn't win. It was an unusual competition indeed.

Home Alone Movie

I really like this movie. Imagine how would it feel like if you are home alone. It's bad leaving your child behind. I wasn't left alone till I was 13 years old. Most parents are worried when their children are left behind because something bad might happen to them. Now I feel good that I'm living in a safe country with no robbers or any strangers. You know there are lots of burglars in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada and the child's parents would get in trouble if they leave their child at home and not take care of them properly. The government would punish the child's parents by sending their child in a children's home.
The child wouldn't like to be taken in care there with lots of children because they want to live together with their own family.

I first watched the first movie with my sister. It was hilarious.My favourite part was when Kevin saw a shadow of those two burglars so we switched on the light of his whole house even the basement.
The next day at school all of my friends were talking about the same movie that I've just saw. I was so surprised because I didn't know that they liked Home Alone so much. So that means we all watched it at the same time. That was in ICT time when they were talking about it. I wanted to say that I watched it too but it was too late because our form teacher, Miss Johanson told us to be quiet. Home Alone 1 was amazing.
Home Alone 2 was great. This was the one when he went to New York. I want to go there too! I hope my wishes come true so me and my family will all travel to New York. Home Alone 3 okay. It would have been more interesting if they brought back Kevin. It would be a good idea if Kevin and Alex team up so that they can fight the burglars. Home Alone 4 wasn't that bad. It would also be great if they didn't replace the actors. The old actors are better. Home Alone 5. I can't wait to see it. I hope it's on now.

Jacqueline Wilson

Jacqueline Wilson is my favourite author. I read most of her books. They're amazing. My favourite of her books is 'The Story of Tracy Beaker'.
I was in the hall in 'Emirates Festival of Literature'. I saw Jacqueline Wilson. I was with my sister and my two friends. She looked like I imagined her. I was excited and nervous when I first saw her. In  the question time, I wanted to ask her if she was going to write another Tracy Beaker story but it was too late because there were too many people raising their hands and wanted to ask a question too. So I decided I'd better ask her in the book signing. But I forgot so I just said, ''Hi Jacqueline Wilson. Nice to meet you.'' I took a picture with her. You should see my new profile picture on facebook. It's me and the drawing of her.

Being Home Alone

It's very bad leaving your child behind
Because he's going to do a crime.
He's going to wreck things
Because he doesn't know how to rhyme.

Something bad might happen to your child
He'll start to scream
And talk to strangers
Whenever he sees them he'll beam.

He'll have trouble doing things
He'll start to turn yellow
Because he doesn't know where to stand
And he'll start to talk to fellows.

The next time you should be a good parent
It's bad to leave your child in bed
Because he'll cry when he knows you're gone
Some children don't like being home alone so they'll get fed.
