Holiday Blogging - Summer Learning Journey W2 D7 A1/2

Day 7 – It’s Time for Breakfast!
You made it safely to your hotel and feel fast asleep. You’ve now woken up and are ready to start your day. Before you start, however, you need to eat some breakfast. Imagine that you and your whanau have walked out of the hotel and into a restaurant across the street. At the restaurant you are offered a traditional breakfast meal. Scroll through the examples below to see a picture of what is commonly eaten in your country for breakfast.

Activity 1
Compare the picture of common breakfast foods in the country you’ve chosen with what you typically eat for breakfast here in New Zealand. I usually have a bowl of sultana bran cereal with trim milk and a cup of tea. What about you? On your blog, please tell us:

  1. What you eat for breakfast? I the morning what eat for breakfast is egg and toast with some milo.
  2. What people in your chosen country eat for breakfast? Australians eat toast and marmite.

3. Which of the two breakfast options (your breakfast or the breakfast in the other country) you prefer. Why do you prefer it? Out of Australian breakfast and what I eat for breakfast it has to be my breakfast. Because I'm not really a fan of marmite on toast. It's just really not my thing.

Activity 2

Some of the most famous foods to come out of New Zealand include kiwifruit, lamb, whitebait, oysters, tuatua (shellfish), kumara, bacon and egg pie, hokey pokey ice cream, lolly cake, anzac biscuits and pavlova. Take a picture of you (or someone you know!) eating one of these famous ‘kiwi’ foods. Post the picture to your blog. Underneath the picture tell us what they are eating.

Here is a photo of me eating kiwi fruit. In the activity I was suppose to eat it in real life. But the thing was I had none of the food that I was suppose to take a picture of me eating. So instead I took a photo of me without any kiwi fruit just a clean photo, and after that I look up online for a kiwi fruit photo (Image attribution). Then paste it on top of my hand eating it. Hope you don't mind Rachel!


  1. Good Morning and Malo e lelei Amelia!

    I'm sure Rachel won't mind you photoshopping in a kiwifruit! I think it's very clever actually! Marmite on toast isn't really my thing either. I only ever have it when someone says "Oh you don't like it?" because then I can prove to them that I can eat anything and everything.

    OH! That reminds me of a time we had fried crickets as a snack in Vietnam! You know those black crickets that hop around sometimes? It was those. They were deep fried. It was strange! Well, my friends wanted to try some and me too, but they were all too scared to start with, so I went first. Guess what they tasted like!

    Would you ever try something like fried crickets?

    Keep up the great work!


    PS. They tasted like chicken chips!

  2. Hi Mia,
    Your work is so fantastic. I am really proud of you. I hope you do more in the days. Keep up the work.
