Saturday the 19th of November 2016 is one of the days that I will never forget in my stay in Canada. It was the day that I had my first golfing experience in such a huge golf course and the day that I drove the first ‘vehicle'(kart) by myself. I was elated as I really wanted to see with my own eyes the professional golfer, Garry, undertake his training. When the day arrived, Carl and Garry did not hesitate to take Moses and I to the golf course.
Garry and Carl took us to the golf course in Langley to try golfing for the first time ever in our lives. Moses and I had never gone golfing before and we really were looking forward to the event.I did not know that golfing was such a hard sport and not as easy as I had expected. It required a lot of skill which I didn’t have as this was my very first efirst experience to golf.
Our first trial in golfing proved to be harder than we expected. Moses and I just knocked off the ball some short distance away but after some time we got the hang of it and did really well for beginners. It was a really enjoyable day!
Kart racing is a game which involves ‘driving’ small race vehicles along a specified track within an enclosed building. The kart has two pedals, a green and red pedal. The green pedal represents the gas pedal while the red pedal represents the brakes. Every driver participating in the kart race has to watch the safety video as a way of informing them of the rules of the game and the safety precautions in relation to the game. I was thrilled the first time when I drove the first vehicle ever in my entire life unaccompanied. I was really afraid when I put a lot of gas on the pedal and nearly hit a wall! The entire game was really interesting and also a new experience to me.
I would like to entirely thank the Schaffers as well as The McKenzies for really enabling us to try new things and games that we have never done before. Thanks a million!!
Sushi for lunch.
Sushi is a type of Japanese fast food found in local restaurants and consists of rice and vegetables wrapped in seaweed and sometimes raw pieces of fish such as salmon. It is very popular in Canada. My homestay family decided that everybody at home would make their own Sushi. I tried my best to make my Sushi as presentable as possible. The results were however, not as good as I had expected but I was able to make and eat Sushi that I had made myself. This was really a nice and new experience for me that will remain embedded in my mind for a long time!
