Making Movie Reflection

For this activity I've enjoyed many things. Working with my friends, learning new things, filming and posting my work to my blog. I dislike that one of our member in our group didn't do anything to help us with our movie trailer. The most interesting thing I did this week was learning how to make trailer’s and how they make it interesting. I learned how to detach the audio from the video’s I'm using on iMovie. Next time I will try to make my movie trailer more interesting and that it has more titles to make it look like a real movie trailer.

Prospective Student Narrative Writing

As the young boy gripped tenuously on the unstable  rock, it suddenly fell and he was left dangling on the ledge of  a mountain. As quickly as he could he reacted and struggled to climb out of the situation he was in. Relieved and exhausted he was glad that he had reached his destination. At long last he had finally reached the dojo and thought to himself   “My dream of becoming a kung fu master is finally here”. I hope the sensei accepts me”, hopes the boy.

Anxious and curious he knocked on the dojo door with no idea on what to expect.  Suddenly the huge door opened and standing in front of the boy was the sensei. To show respect the young boy bowed, but the sensei pointed directly to his right and slammed the door. The young boy was confused and he thought to himself “What a waste of time”.

By not giving up and losing faith the young boy thought he had to prove himself worthy by meditating all day and night til the morning sunrise. Still deep in meditation, the boy did not realize that the sensei was standing in front of him. The boy opened one lazy eye and once again the sensei pointed to his right and slammed the door.

The hopeless boy dropped his head in sadness and walks away. Suddenly he had changed his emotions, from depressed to furious. He stormed back to the dojo and karate kicked the enormous door down. The sensei came out again. “I challenge you to a karate battle!” demanded the boy. The sensei pointed in frustration to his right. Turning his head the boy notice the sign that the sensei had been pointing at. “PLEASE USE THE SIDE ENTRANCE!” said the sign. Embarrassed and feeling dumb the boy curled his arms up like a girl and walked onwards.

Rewena Bread - Procedure

In Room 22 we are learning to make ' Rewena Bread '.  We have started our investigation on what we need in order to make the ' Rewena Bread ' here is the procedure. Ingredients are listed below! - 1 medium sliced potato- 1 cup of water- 2 cups of flour- 1 teaspoon of sugar-  A little bit of water on your hand! 

Place your potato in a a pot all sliced up with a cup of water that should be sufficient to cover it.  (  Boil until cooked ) , then leave till lukewarm ( DO NOT drain the water ) Mash the potato.

Carefully add flour and sugar to the pot, mixed until ingredients are combined firm light paste ( You have to use lukewarm water to the mixture as it gets dry). It will have small lumps, Don't worry these will break down as the procedure continues.

Pour into a bowl big enough for the bug to rise. After pouring the mixture cover the lid loosely with baking paper. Then leave in a warm place to ferment, over the next day or so the bug will have to be fed to maintain fermentation: 1 teaspoon of sugar and half a cup of lukewarm potato water. Once it starts to rise and form bubbles, it's time to add the rest of the ingredients to make rewena bread.
