Happy Father's Day!

Image
On this day, we take a look at our other half of our families: fathers. Hard-working, clever and serious, they're the ones who teach us the rights and wrongs of our actions and our lives, including our mums as well. They teach us how to live our lives, learn new things and most importantly: loving and caring for each other, and also having fun.

Even though I describe fathers like this, there's always one that I always look up to: my dad.


Sure, he may not be the most good-looking dad of all and he looks like an average father to you, but he does have a wonderful smile and a large heart that's full of love and passion. Every day, he teaches me new things, as well as the rights and wrongs of my actions, and I really can't appreciate it any more than saying "I love you" to him, which is why, along with the help of my mum, we decided to make it up to him by buying some things for him to show that I truly appreciate his gift on Saturday (yesterday on the day this pos…

Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day - the day where we all look up to our mothers and thank them for raising us, teaching us, and also loving and looking after us. This also applies to our fathers too, but Father's Day isn't around until 18th June in the UK, so they're going to wait until that day (sorry, Dad!). But anyway, I would like to celebrate this day for our mothers in the UK (other countries celebrate Mother's Day in different days, by the way) by thanking them, but I simply cannot thank my mum, Susana Fernandes, enough. Here she is:
Even though she may not be the world's best-looking mum, I still love her and I always do to this day at the bottom of my heart. My mum is special to me as she, along with my dad, looked after me, educated me, and loved me no matter what. She's very close and unique to me and I don't think that replacing my mum will never be the same without her appearance. That's how special she is.
Even though I haven't made a card for my mum, wo…

A Tribute to the London Attack

Image
On this day in the afternoon, 22nd March 2017, an attack in London occurred where an attacker drove on Westminster Bridge, ran over people before crashing his car and stabbing a police officer before being shot dead by other police officers near the Palace of Westminster, British Parliament. The attacker, whose identity is not yet confirmed, injured 20 people as he ran them over with his car and killing 4 people, which also includes the stabbed police officer and the attacker himself.

An article from the BBC shows an illustrated route that the attacker took along with some pointers where the pedestrians were injured due to being hit directly by the attacker, where it crashed and where the attacker was shot dead.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Hello, everybody! Gamertron here wishing you a very Merry Christmas today!

From the presents I received today, I got an iPhone 7 with a screen protector and a back case, and a Monopoly Super Mario Bros.: Collectors Edition board game. I couldn't be any happier from what I got this year on Christmas, especially the fact that I'm in Madeira with my parents as we're all enjoying our time here. I'll try to get the rest of the days up on my blog at some point, ok? Sorry about that!

What did you get for Christmas this year, and what did you do over the holidays? Let us know in the comments below!

Day 5: Paying a Visit

Tuesday 20th December 2016


A few miles away from Funchal, we drove up to a restaurant called Planka for us to have lunch with my parents and grandma as we were feeling hungry. When we got to the restaurant, it had a lovely view of Madeira as it was on some high ground. For my lunch, I had some meat covered in mushroom sauce; some lettuce, onions, cucumber and tomatoes; and some rice and chips, whilst my parents had some milho with some tuna. It was so delicious that I ended up clearing the entire plate!
After eating our food, we went to the top of the restaurant as they have access to go up to the roof, and the views were amazing, especially the fact that it was sunny!

Day 4: Market Bonanza

Monday 19th December 2016

Nothing’s better than going out to town with my dad to eat one of my favourite foods: Portuguese meat (Carne De Vinho Alhos). For me, it’s absolutely tasty and it makes a great Portuguese sandwich to have for lunch. We had them in Mercado Dos Lavrados, which is the main central market in Funchal, as there’s a cafe that makes these types of sandwiches for lunch. The cafe that we went to is located to a nearby local market that we visited after having our lovely sandwiches, and they sold a wide variety of products ranging from fruits and vegetables, to flowers and clothes, as most of these items are traditional Portuguese gifts to people.
As we went to the market, it was beautiful as each and every market stand had colourful fruits and products standing out in front of everyone, making them easy to spot and filling the place up with colours. It really made the place thrive and feel alive. They even had a lady there playing some music to add to that as well!
