Hey everyone! We’re doing pretty well and the weather’s pretty good! It’s like being in air con but… outside where it is sunny. So far we’ve gone to the Los Angeles County museum of Natural History…
To the Santa Monica pier/bay where the beach looks wonderful and there’s shops and a theme park on it…
And the California Institute of the Arts! We checked out more places but well, you’ll have to check the N.E.Mation facebook wall for the photos we shared to see them as we upload! Catch you later everyone, we’re going to Disney tomorrow! Wooooh!
From Terminal 3 in Singapore, we travelled to Narita airport in Japan!
Then to Los Angeles airport! That was… wow, how many hours was that? I can’t remember, 18 hours? WE TRAVELLED BACK IN TIME! It was Saturday when we set off in Singapore and now it is Saturday here in LA!
And now we’re here at the hotel! It’s 11.26pm now so goodnight! Tomorrow we’re heading off towards the museums or science centres here.
This has been a short N.E.Mation post, whil I have time/wifi. See you around next post! I’ll be posting a super long one after the whole adventure!
Will be back on the 14th of June. So comments will be put under only approval before it shows up in posts so that I won’t let any accidental spam through.
I have a post scheduled on Monday as usual! Heh.
Also, I’ll be posting a few short blog posts while I’m in the USA because… IT IS MY NEMATION TRIP! I’ll have a big post at the end of it but I’ll try to post as much as I can while I’m there because the activities and places we’re going to are pretty fun!
See you guys back on the 14th. Don’t worry about your comments, I’ll approve them (not that I get that many) eventually when I’m posting my short blog posts!

Also, do YOU want to win Book Depository vouchers up to $20? Liyanaland has a competition on her website here for more details on that. Seriously, if you like buying books especially from BD, go look at it since the competition is super simple.
I got to sit in at the top 20 groups that were learning how to animate on the 7th September. The results of who would be in the top 10 would be on Saturday so this was just something all of them would get to at least experience. Like a taster on how animating would be like.
Also, I did get to go to the results for the top 10 so click the more cut to read the rest!
This is the start of N.E.mation! Well, the start of my series with the latest theme, NS: From Fathers to Sons.
For this period of time, you’ll be able to see my picture on the right above Latest Topics. See that? Yeah! Vote for me, Seriously Sarah, to be the ambassador of N.E.mation (you got to like the actual page for it first). It’ll be until past November till we know who wins since during that period of time, the student groups will be doing their productions for their final animation in this competition.
What’s N.E.mation? It’s a national education animation competition for students here! Don’t know what is going on? No worries since this is “day 1” of learning what it is about for 100 teams of students that managed to get into the first round.
