I am getting so excited to meet you!!
We might go camping over the weekend while you are here if you would like that. You said you used to have six rabbits that's so cool!! I love animals too and am getting a kitten in a year. I also really love music and play the flute. Once again so looking forward to meeting you!
From your REALLY excited host Lili :)
Hi Liili, I'm really excited to meet you too! I love animals and I play cello. I can't wait; I'm jumping beans every day!!!!! By the way, do you have an animal? E.g. Dog. I hope we go on lots of fun trips and wait until I give you this cool present from AUS!!
Love your buddie Kylie :)
P.S. it says to bring an opal colored t-shirt; do you know what it means?
Hi again Kylie
I am practically bouncing off the walls because I'm getting super doper excited!! Unfortunately I don't have any pets but one of our neighbours bunnies keeps running away to our house. Have you heard of Hanmer Springs because that is where we are thinking of going for the weekend. It has got an awesome hot springs place! We are preparing a present for you too. Do you have any siblings beacause I have a nine year old brother. Also would you be ok sharing a room for the week with me? I do know what they mean by bring an opal coloured top. Did you see the photo of me sent to you, if you did the colour of the shirt i am wearing uderneath(the bluey green one) is the kind of coloured shirt you need to bring because that is our school uniform colours.
Love your kiwi buddy Lili!!!
P.S do you have a nickname? Mine is Lil.
P.P.S I think you should also ask one of your teachers about the opal shirt but I am 99 percent sure it is our school colours.
I have never been to NZ before, so I hope this will be a good experience for me. If you don't mind answering, can you at least answer some questions?
How is the weather in New Zealand?
What kind of activities are we going to do?
Can you teach me how to do surfing? (Soz, I'm not really good at those stuff;( )
Will I be able to notice you when we finish school?
What times does school start ad finish?
What would you like for a souvenir? And your parents?
See ya, Kylie^^
Sorry! I have a lot of questions!
For school, do we have to bring our own stationary and notebooks? What kinds of things do we need for school?
Thanks for the description of the t shirts. Well, what a coincidence because my mother rabbit who had the baby rabbits kept on escaping to my neighbors house too! But unfortunately she got eaten by my next doors hunting dog, in our front yard! I cried a lot, but that was in the past. I try to forget the memory. And anyway, I never mind sharing a room with you. I was all smiles when I saw the pic of you! Well, see you when I get to New Zealand !
Best of luck, Kylie
I don't mind answering your questions at all. The weather in NZ is mostly nice and we have had a very hot, dry summer. Although hot is a maximum if 30 degrees. We are going to go to the beach probably quite a lot for mostly surfing, we will be to going to school for a few days and you will be in my class.
We are also going to Hanmer and we will be swimming in hot pools, going on water slides and walking around shops. Of course I can teach you how to surf! I live for surfing. Yes I have got one brother Nate who is nine and then there's Me and my Mum and Dad. School starts at nine and ends at three here. What time does your school start and finish. I am sorry but I don't really get what you mean by will you be able to notice me when we finish school.
I don't really know what we would like for a souvenir I guess whatever you thing is a good idea. How about you? No you won't need to bring anything for school you can just use my stuff. I am so sorry about your poor rabbit! :(
See ya Lili
I REALLY want to explore the NZ cities.... and sooner or later hopefully I will be exploring one of them! By the way, do I have to bring a sleeping bag? I can't wait to jump into the hot springs! I also have a sis called Alice, and most of the times she's ok. I can't wait to buy lots of clothes and souvenirs!
Best of luck,Kye
I have a few questions for you (please answer them) :
What nationality are you?
What is your favourite food?
Are there any foods you don't eat?
Are you allergic to anything?
Do you usually wake up early?
My answers are :
My nationality is South Korean. I speak Australian between my sis, while my parents encourage me to speak Korean.
My favorite food is avocados and I also fancy Italian food, and of course, I love Korean food.
No, I can eat any kind of food; but I don't fancy green veggies!
I am not allergic to anything.
I don't fancy waking up early... I love to sleep in! I can hold a grudge if I don't sleep in!
Your friend, kye
No you won't have to bring a sleeping bag because we will be staying in a cabin. Where we are staying even has a jumping pillow! I can't wait to do everything with you and all the cool things we will see.
So are we staying at your house or at Hamner springs when we are going camping? I don't mind, so please let me know?~
Hi Lil, ☺
I am so excited that I will be in the same class as well, but will I be with my school friends as well? 😮
( just wondering)
Thanks , Kye
P.s. its only 22 more days until we meet face to face!!😉♡♡♡♡
In Hanmer we are actually staying in a campground but in a cabin not a tent ( we don't own it.) I am getting so so excited. Is it really only 22 days!!!?? You will be in class with your friends maybe not the whole time but you will see them every day at least once.
Excited squeals Lil
P.S do your parents speak any English.
So so so So so excited!!!!!
P.S how do you add emojis to your message?
To add the little emoticons you need a tablet to do it. I did mine at my best friend's home, because she herself own a tablet. I don't think you can possibly do it on a computer or an I Pad, but your technology system might be a bit differnt to ours, and by the way even though I did the emoticons it dosn't come up on my computer.
P.S. My parents can speak english.
P.P.S. I hope I make some new friends from your class and I hope you know some of my friend's host buddies:
Zoe with Juliet
Grace with Hannah and Sheridon
Ruby with Lucy
Excited squeals, Kye
just wondering if you have a 2 storey house or not! Don't worry, I have a old 1 storey house but we just bought a house and it is still in renovation.
Yes you will be happy to know I do know the hosts of your friends well all except one and you will probably be in class with Grace ( because one of her hosts is in my class.) I also do flute with Lucy, Ruby's host. Even if they are not in your class you will still see a lot of them. I only have a one storey house which we are renting but we own two other ones. One in Queenstown which we are selling and one here which we are renovating but they are all one storey. Thanks for the advice about the emoticons but I don't actually have a tablet but I tried.. :(
Thanks for the description.... I don't have anything to write until we actually interact with each other .... And it's so awesome that you have 3 houses altogether! And I hope I will be in the same class with my friends and their hosts, and of course, YOU!!
I know I can't think of what to say other then YAY I AM SO EXCITED!!!!
Only 18 more days!!
Only 14 more days!!!
I have some questions-
Is your school teacher nice? Mine is.
Is your teacher a boy or girl? Mine is a girl.
Lastly what is her/his name? Mine is Mrs Blake.
I have a lovely teacher this year, her name is Ms Bloxidge. She loves Peter Pan, and she has a dog called Tia and a turtle called Franklin. She used to be a marine biologist and used to work at Scienceworks. (In Canberra). I can't wait to see you, It is only like, 1 and a half more week to go! And Ms Bloxidge is a girl.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!
