the
Top 5 Things NOT to
Miss!
1) Hit the Dunes- You
should not miss visiting the
famous dunes where you
can have picnics with
friends and family and go
camping!
2) Cruising Along the Gulf
Coast- Take your loved
one or your family on a
wonderful cruise ride along
the Arabian Coast and
witness the shimmering
water and peaceful sunset!
3) Over the Top- Make sure
to hit Abu Dhabis highest
point that nearly brings you
above the sky! The Jebel
Hafeet is a overnight stay
hotel that has a breath-
taking view of a tall
mountain peak!
4) Go for Gold- Visit the
amazing malls that have
glittering jewelry and see
the many treasures of Abu
Dhabi! Don't worry, there
will denitely bee a fancy
mall close by your hotel!
5) Food Trip- Take a tour
around Abu Dhabi and
taste the mouth-watering
savories of Abu Dhabi such
as Fattoush, an Arabian
vegetable Salad and
experience other delicious
cuisine!
! In the past, Abu Dhabi was an undeveloped city, without adequate water, food, jobs
and money. Abu Dhabi was known as a shing village with hardly any buildings,
monuments, businesses or tourist attractions. Then, once petroleum was discovered the
landscape and environment began to transform around the citizens. Buildings were built,
ports, monetary houses and shops made their way towards the sky. Abu Dhabi soon
became the city of greenery and modern art in the United Arab Emirates, but this
massive change to the environment only started in the 1970s and was to, without any
doubt, continue! Abu Dhabis eye-opening air was inspired by Arab style, such as
glamorous golds and silvers, while modernism was said to come from places like New
York, London or other advanced and fascinating cities.
!
! Today, Abu Dhabi is more than just buildings, malls or high-fashion, but also 40+
story buildings, broad boulevards, massive and fashionable apartments, enthralling
greenery, urbanized and high-class airports and also busy oil ports! This mind opening
revolution was for the cause of tourist attractions, modernization and because the
people of Abu Dhabi needed a little tweak to their lifestyle! This fancy city had taken
about 20 years clearing shores, planting numerous trees all over the region and building
stunning buildings, just to improve each and everyones lives. As a result, Abu Dhabi has
been said to be better than Dubai and is denitely now one of the wealthiest and
enchanting places in the world!
A Captivating
Change
- Pay no attention to the
impossible, they whisper.
For it does not belong

THE IMPACT OF THE
PAST AND THE PRESENT
! Before, Melbourne used to be a small
town owned by traditional settlers such as
Aborigines of the Kulin Nation, the traditional
owners.
Then everything changed when John Batman
came in 1835 and bought around 240, 00
hectares of land from the Aboriginal leaders.
The concept of buying and selling was new for the
Aboriginal culture. They received tools, our, and
clothing as payment.
The trading was very one sided and the people who
bought it got much richer, and wealthier, compared to
the Aboriginals.
As a result 10,000 Europeans living in the area in the
1840s eventually got wealthy from the gold elds
built around the city. While the Aboriginal people
due to the loss of their land, had lower population.
Other Aboriginal people were killed in violent battles
over the rights of some land, a vast number also died
from hunger because they had no food as they rely on
nature for their food source and living. Lack of food
and water also put them at risk of many diseases or

Anecdote: Werribee Open Range Zoo
! I just love going to Melbourne Werribee
Open Range Zoo! When my family strolled inside
the zoo everything was just so natural, and
miraculous, because there were lots of intriguing
trees, and different types of fascinating animals. But
it was just beginning to get better because I bolted
into a safari car and the worker took us to a wide-
open place where we could see giraffes, zebras,
hippos, lions and other interesting species close up. I
loved when we got to the zebras because feeding
them was really entertaining, but also unpleasant
because the zebras ate it like they havent eaten for
centuries, and all the spit, muck, and liquid from the
food kept bursting out.
! My family especially enjoyed petting the
animals; after taking a tour around the zoo, the
worker took us to a souvenir store. The souvenir
store was tremendously wide because it took me
awhile to nd my way back to the main entrance! I
really loved the store because for instance, there
were a lot of stuffed animals, the workers were really
polite, and there were a lot of souvenirs to pick! I
will never forget my trip to the Melbourne Werribee
Open Range Zoo!
The businessman and explorer John Batman established the city of
Melbourne in 1835. It is located at Port Philip Bay, in the southeast of
the continent. Port Philip Bay lies just across Bass Strait from
Australias island state of Tasmania. In the past, people sailed to
Melbourne because the Victorian Gold Rush was happening and
people wanted to get some land and resources. Today people come to
Melbourne because it is safe and clean, living is affordable,
transportation and driving is comfortable and nice, health and
medical care is reliable, there are a lot of job opportunities, and the
crime rate is very low, the city ranks highly in international research
on livable cities, and education and childcare is highly excellent.
Currently in the city of Melbourne, there are 3,850,000 million
people living in Melbourne. There are 60 different nationalities and
there are multiple religions; but the most common religion is
Christian, Muslim, and Jewish. The major industries and businesses
today are the automobile industry, nancial sectors, information
technology and tourism. Today people choose to live in Melbourne because there are a
lot of opportunities, safe, good education, healthcare is reliable, childcare is highly
excellent, and living is very affordable. Therefore Melbourne is now one of the best livable
places in the world. If I were to choose a country that is comfortable, less pollution, affordable
living, a lot of job opportunities, and medical care is reliable; I would choose Melbourne with no
doubt.

Did you know that Bangkok currently
holds the Guinness record for having
the longest name of a place?
Apparently Bangkok is just the short
version because the citys ceremonial
name is Krung Thep Mahanakhon
Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara
Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat
Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet
Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan
Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam
Prasit. Say what? Because of the good
services in Bangkok, many people want
to live there. Right now, there are about
10 million people in Bangkok. Bangkok
has a true international culture with a
sizable population of immigrants from
China, Japan, India, America, Europe,
Taiwan, South Korea, Nigeria,
Malaysia, and Singapore. In the year
2011, Bangkoks economy had been
highly damaged by the ood that had
quickly spread all over the city. The
flood disaster had been described as
the worst flooding yet in terms of the
amount of the water and people
affected. But the good thing about the
flood is that now, people are more
aware and prepared for any future
natural disaster. After the flood had
been stopped, Bangkoks economy had
rocketed with many new shopping
malls and buildings. The newly
established airport in 2006 had attracted
many travelers to come to Bangkok.
Many feel that Suvarnabhumi airport
will be at the center of Thailand's
growth and economic development. So
dont miss the feeling of the rich taste
and the beauty of this city now.

MY STORY
!
When I was in Bangkok, there was a new mall, so I ask my mom to go
there. The mall was called Terminal 21. The mall has a lot of cool designs; each
oor is named with a specic city. For example, one oor is called Tokyo, that
oor is my favorite. The shops on that oor are all imported from Japan. The
designs of that oor are amazing! There are tons of Japanese cartoon statues. The
Japanese restaurants on that oor are just amazing! One of my favorite dishes
there is Tonkatsu, the avor of the chicken mixed with egg in it are fantastic! It is
the best Japanese restaurant I had ever been to yet. There are also many great
oors like, Hollywood, San Francisco, and Paris. My mom said that this mall is
for teenagers and she hates it. It is true that there are mostly teenagers but I had
also pointed to her that there are also adults about her age too. She had also said
that the mall is too big but, I said to her that there are shops everywhere. She was
quite for a while. The shops in that mall are just perfect for me, there are sports
shops everywhere! The escalators there are the tallest escalator Ive ever seen in
my life. The name of the mall, Terminal 21 wonders me where the name came
from. I went to the oor, Hollywood, and that oor is the cinema. I was amazed
about how they made the cinema so modern that even my mom said that it was
good. She never says anything about this mall. We watched this Thai movie and it
was great. After my long, long and fantastic day at the mall, I had nished my day
by visiting the temple. There, I got to calm down and stayed in peace for about an
hour. That night, I had a good, long and peaceful sleep.

Topography:
Chao Phraya River bank
Ten years ago, Thailand had value forest
and natural resources. There were
barely any natural disasters so nobody
was afraid. Rice elds are being cropped
properly with no problems and new
factories are being built. Thailand was a
wealthy country with many new cities
and buildings being built. Bangkok is the
business heart
At the end of July, 2011, triggered by the
landfall of Tropical Storm Nock-Ten, and
the storm caused a huge ood. The
ood soon spread through the
provinces of Northern, Northeastern,
and central of Thailand along the
Mekong and Chao Phraya river basins. In
October, ood water reached the
mouth of Chao Phraya and inundated
parts of the capital city, Bangkok. There
were three areas that caused the ood.
Expanding of the cities, deforestation,
and the climate change. First of all, the
expanding of cities had really caused the
ood. The government had many
projects to build several of new
constructions in major cities and urban
areas. The land that once used to be
empty was now lled with roads and
buildings. The problem is that projects in
several areas were not set up with a
suitable system of drainage. So when the
monsoon came, the water cannot be
drained and it will eventually cause
ooding. There were also many people
that invaded into the forest. They had
cut down many trees that were never
regrown. There were both legal cutters
and illegal ones. Eventually, there were
not enough trees to absorb rainfall. All
of those problems had eventually caused
a ood.
The ood disaster had been described
as the worst ooding yet in terms of
the amount of the water and people
affected. The World Bank had estimated
for this disaster to be the worlds 4th
costliest disaster as of 2011 surpassed
only by the 2011 earthquake and
tsunami in Japan, 1995 Kobe
earthquake, and hurricane Katrina in
2005. The World Bank had also
estimated 1425 billion Baht (US$45.7
billion) in economic damages and losses
due to ooding as of December 1,
2011. Because of the ood, people lost
their homes and lost the ones they
love. More than 500 people died.
Floodwaters have swamped more than
two-thirds of the country, submerging
rice elds and shutting down hundreds
of factories while over 900,000 families
and businesses have been impacted and
hundreds of lives have been tragically
lost. It was the worst ood since the
last 50 years.
The Environment
The environment in Bangkok had
changed a lot because of the airport,
Suvarnabhumi Airport. Many foreign
investors, and visitors come to Bangkok
and they are lling up the airport of
Don Mueang. So the government
decided to start building a new
airport, Suvrnabhumi Airport. The
new airport was designed to protect
from the ood and various natural
disasters. The airport is located in
Racha Thewa in Bang Phli district,
Samut Prakan Province, about 25
kilometers (16 mi) east of
downtown Bangkok. The name
Suvarnabhumi was chosen by King
Bhumibol Adulyadej and refers to
the golden kingdom hypothesized to
have been located somewhere in
Southeast Asia. The place that used to
be patty eld is now a newly established
Suvarnabhumi Airport.
The former Prime Minister, Thaedksin
Shinawatra, completed the construction
of the airport after the 30 years of
planning and debate. The airport had
ofcially opened a week after Thaksins
government was overthrown. The
airport is one of the worlds largest
airports. The airport includes 130
passport control checkpoints for
arrivals, 72 for departure, 26 customs
control checkpoints for arrivals, 8 for
departures, 22 baggage conveyor belts,
and 360 check-in counters. There are
100 additional counters for passengers
without luggage, 107 moving walkways,
102 elevators, and 83 escalators.
Suvarnabhumi Airport have an advanced
airport information and management
system (AIMS) costing 2 billion baht,
replicating that of Athens International
Airport, which is recognized as one of
the most modern airports in the world.
One of the most modern airports in the
world, Suvarnabhumi Airport is
equipped with advanced technology to
help provide accurate and speedy
information to enhance the safety and
comfort of air travelers. The airport was
ofcially opened for limited domestic
ight service on September 15, 2000
and all international commercial ights
on 28 September 2006. Suvarnabhumi is
the 6th busiest airport in Asia, and the
busiest in the country, having handled
47.9 million passengers in 2011. The
airport has the world's tallest free-
standing control tower (132.2 meters /
434 feet), and the world's 4th largest
single-building airport terminal (563,000
square meters / 6,060,000 square feet).
! The study noted that without a
new airport, Thailand's economy in
general, and the country's travel and
tourism industry in particular, would be
much affected. Many feel that
Suvarnabhumi will be at the center of
Thailand's growth and economic
development. It is expected that during
the rst ve years of operation
Suvarnabhumi Airport could occupy
twelfth or thirteenth place as growth in
the commercial airline industry rises
rapidly in the Asia Pacic region.
Because of this airport, it is easier for
the visitors to travel around the city.
When they arrive, they could take the
Airport Like (Sky train) that connects
with the airport to the main citys Sky
train, BTS.

King Rama 1 founded the city of
Bangkok in 1782. The Thais were
originally from the Yunnan River,
China. First the capital city of Thailand
was Ayutthaya, and then the Burmese
robbed and destroyed it. So then the
capital moved to Thonburi but that
didnt last for long. After that the capital
city, Bangkok, was nally established.
Bangkok is located in the central of
Thailand so that it has full protection
from other city surrounding it. For
example, the ood in 2011, the
governments did the very best to protect
Bangkok by trying to move the water
way so that Bangkok doesnt get
damaged. The Chao Phraya River,
which is the biggest river in Thailand,
passes through Bangkok and that is a
good water source.
Bangkok is a major center of the cutting
and trading gemstones and also a
production of high quality of gold. They
also produce silver jewelry. Since
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand,
there are many buildings, supermarkets,
and public transportation for people to
access easily. So many people come to
Bangkok because of the good resources
of food, easy access public
transportation, many good schools and
shopping malls. Everywhere you walk
in Bangkok, you will nd a restaurant
so it is easy to nd places to sit and
dine. There are also many foods on the
streets, which are cheap and delicious.
And also there are fresh markets
everywhere and are cheap. Thailand is
known for its famous cuisines,
traditions and architecture. Many
foreigners come to try out the cuisines,
and go to temples. There are many good
schools and universities since primarily
to graduate. There are also hospitals
everywhere, both private and public.
The doctors and nurses and the staff
generally speak good English. There are
a lot public transportations like the
Skytrain, MRT, Taxies, Buses, Tuk Tuk,
underground train and the Airportlink.
So that if you take the trains, or
skytrains, you dont have to ght
through all the trafcs. In Bangkok,
there are also many shopping malls with
amazing designs and new items and
also many famous brands. So people
would love to move to Bangkok.
Because of the good services in
Bangkok, many people want to live
there. Right now, there are about 10
million people in Bangkok. Bangkok
has a true international culture with a
sizable population of immigrants from
China, Japan, India, America, Europe,
Taiwan, South Korea, Nigeria,
Malaysia, and Singapore. Bangkok is
also believed to have approximately
400-600 illegal immigrants from
Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Russia,
Ukraine, Pakistan, Nigeria, India,
Bangladesh, China, and so on. 95% of
the Thais are Buddhist. The Thais got
their religion from the past generations
of the Chinese. King Rham Khamhaeng
introduced Thai language in 1283, the
language consists 44 consonants and 48
vowels with 5 different tones making
for it hard to learn.

place, Beijing? Can you imagine bright
nature surrounding you? Beijing was a
quiet and peaceful place until Mao

communist government on October 1st. He
started the Cultural Revolution making the
days of the Chinese dim and lonely.
However, today, many people from other
nations enjoy living and visiting Beijing.
In fact, the population of Beijing is 17.4
million people now. From 17.4 million
people, 5.1 million, which is nearly 30%
of the Beijing population, are migrant

Beijing was like a freedom place. Until
Mao Zedong established the rst Chinese
communist government on October 1st,
1949.Peole were able to live peacefully in
their daily life. In fact, the Cultural
Revolution originated from here.
Then everything changed. The communist
government tried to create a new society, he
was aiming to restore capitalism. Because
of that, for ten years between 1966 and
1976, chairmen Maos Red Guards tried
to destroy traditional customs including
books and clothes. Factory owners had
more power and workers were paid to
produce more. This is called as the
Cultural Revolution. People who had
foreign connections were treated viciously
while musicians, dancers, surgeons, and
university professors were moved to the
borders of China where they were forced to
do work.
Then everything changed, in 1977, Liu
Shaoqi and Deng Xiaoping, then the State
Chairman and General Secretary, favored
the idea that Mao should be removed from
actual power. Then, nationwide pay was
raised. In addition, government allowed
the return of markets, which Mao closed
during the Cultural Revolution.
Consequently, farmers were able to produce
various different types of food, and made
more money by themselves in their own
land. Also they were willing to harder as
they beneted from it directly.
As a result, the city of Beijing population
went down and even the ones who
survived, left China shortly after the
revolution was nished. Also most of the
economic activities stopped. Cultural
Revolution brought up a huge number of
Red Guards who protected Mao and
destroyed various amount of ancient
buildings, artifacts, books, and paintings,
etc. Furthermore, Chinas education
system was brought to nearly close
down. The university entrance exams
were cancelled after 1966 and werent
restored until 1977. Cultural
Revolution was one of the awful things
that happen in Beijings history.

! What do you think the wall in the picture is?
Can you believe that this is the Great Wall of
China, one of seven wonders in the world? This is
in Mutianyu and called as Mutianyu Great Wall,
which was made on March 2008.At a glance, it
looks like an antique tower that went through a
long battle.The way is blocked with rocks falling
apart and building jumbled with dirt. It seems that
the wall is about to fall down. In fact, this was built
in the 5th century BC.It is so old and damaged
now that no tourists would want to visit.
To our surprise, the Great Wall of China has
recently changed its face from before.Another
picture on the left displays the new Wall whose
renovation was completed on April 2009. More
amazing is that all this change happened in only
one year! The structure of the wall became tourist
friendly and more secured. In addition, the city
government added more blocks to places that were
missing and broken before. They cleared out the
way and cemented a whole chunk of blocks to
make it look better. The city government sought
these changes in the Great Wall of China because
they want the Wall to represent true Beijing and so
that more tourists willvisit the city. If the Wall
turns into a tourist friendlier, neater and cleaner
place, then more people from other countries
would also come to see it. Then, Beijing would be
more famous and many people would want to live
there.

The Great Wall of China is one
of my favorite places Ive visited.
Different sections of Beijing's
Great Wall satised many of my
different interests. The greenery
around me enchanted my path. I
was inspired by view of the high
mountains. It helped me become
t and refreshing. This is not all, I
was able to reect on Beijings
culture one by one while walking.
The Great Wall has the pure
Beijing history and memories. If I
had an opportunity to visit China
again, I will visit The Great Wall!

fertilizers and petrochemicals that help bring in
the money. Their farmers grow dates, vegetables,
and watermelons along with raising poultry for
eggs and dairy products. They also build ships,
sell handicrafts and textiles. In the past Dubai

THE IMPACT OF THE PAST ON THE PRESENT AND
POPULATION
The Impact of
the Past on the
Present : Dubai used
to be a small shing
town dependent of Abu
Dhabi until 1833, it then
became a British
protectorate in the 19th
century. Dubai became
an important port of call
for the British to use for
their steamers to get to
India. In 1971 Dubai
became part of United
Arab Emirates. In the
early 1960s oil was
found, and in 1966 their
production of oil began.
In 1971 they announced
an oil eld and a
supertanker dock was
constructed. As a result
of the discoveries from
1970- 1990 greatly
increased the UAE's oil
and gas reserves. By
1992 there were 4 oil
producing emirates that
had produced an
estimated total of 98
billion barrels of crude
oil. They also produced
5.2 trillion cubic meters
of natural gas reserves
resulting in their ability
to sell their oil and
natural gas to other
countries which made
them rich.

2012 ANNUAL UPDATE
! Jerusalem is an
extremely fascinating city to
live in! Plenty of the housing
areas are just the right distance
from the business areas. The
roads are so convenient! The
Jerusalem townspeople are
some of the happiest and most
friendly people I have ever met
in my life. You could be one of
them as well! The weather is
perfect in this historic city, its
never too sunny, and never too
rainy as well. The city has
changed though through the
past years. Some buildings
arent in the city anymore, and
some of the laws have been
changed around but Jerusalem
still is one of the most
interesting places I have ever
been to in my entire life. I
wasnt able to see everything
that I wanted to see!
! If I were ever able to
go to Jerusalem again, I would

Fun Fact!
My Experience
! "erusalem is an extremely fascinating city
to live in! Plenty of the housing areas are just the
right distance from the business areas. The roads are
so convenient! The Jerusalem townspeople are some
of the happiest and most friendly people I have ever
met in my life. You could be one of them as well!
The weather is perfect in this historic city, its never
too sunny, and never too rainy as well. The city has
changed though through the past years. Some
buildings arent in the city anymore, and some of the
laws have been changed around but Jerusalem still is
one of the most interesting places I have ever been to
in my entire life. I wasnt able to see everything that I
wanted to see!!If I were ever able to go to Jerusalem

JERUSALEM HISTORY EFFECTS
Before the Arab Israeli war, Jerusalem used
to be containing mainly Jewish people. The city of
Jerusalem had over 300 landmarks and tourist
attractions including the old city, the temple Mount,
and many, many more. Jerusalems population was
around 746,400 people in 1945. There were wide-
open pathways to walk and Israel had open borders.
They had all those things all the way up until the
Arab-Israeli war in 1946.
! Then, everything changed in Jerusalem.
There were troops from surrounding countries
coming in through their open borders and the next
thing they knew, over ten of the Arab states of
Jordan, Yemen, Syria, and Egypt were going against
the idea of Jewish settlement in the middle east.
Most of this was happening because no Jews had
ever been to the Middle East and the other countries
believed that no one would. Most of the surrounding
countries of Israel were made up of two main
religions. Christian and Muslims.
" The Arab-Israeli war was by far the
bloodiest war that Israel has ever fought in. Though
this war didnt really harm Jerusalem in any way
really because most of the ghting was just
happening around the borders of Israel. Mostly
because Israel was able to keep the Arab states out of
the country. Though there was a chance of Arab
troops invading other parts of Israel though. But
eventually, the Arab states werent able to end up
conquering Israel. And just like the rest of the
upcoming wars later on in the century, Israel won the
Arab war.
" As a result, Jerusalem is now its own
independent city containing 3 different religions.
Two of which settled in Israel during the war the
Christians and the Muslims, in which came from the
surrounding countries of Israel. Jerusalem now has
the name of the divided city because each
different religion has its own quarter. The Jewish
quarter contains most of Jerusalems landmarks.
Jerusalem is one amazing city. You might not have
known, but Muslims and Jews do not get along well
because of an ancient rivalry. Yet they still have to
share a city. But remember, there was only one thing
that caused this: The Arab Israeli war.

! The city of Jerusalem was
established in the 4th Millennium BCE. It
is located in the Middle East of Asia and
East of the Mediterranean Sea. Jerusalem
is one of the oldest cities in the world.
Modern Jews descended from Israelites
and Maccabees. Abraham (the father of
the Jews) was sent to Israel by god in the
4th Millennium BCE. He was a famous
man and had many followers who tended
to follow Abraham to Israel.
! In the past people came to
Jerusalem because Sir Abraham had over
100 followers, who had all followed and
claimed they were sent to Israel by god as
well. Jerusalem was then ranked the #1
holiest city in the world. Many more
religions moved into Jerusalem to support
their gods, though most of them came
during the Arab Israeli war in 1947. The
city attracts many tourists with their
temples, churches, and synagogues. The
most major businesses revolve around
services, such as schools, tourism,
religion, and government. Business plays a
fairly small rule in Jerusalems economy.
! The population of Jerusalem
today is around 798,309 people. The
tourists who visit Jerusalem mostly are
from countries out of the Middle East,
such as Ireland, Germany, France, and
other places close to the Middle East. But
people who live in Jerusalem are from
places close to the country, usually other
countries in the Middle East. The city is
split into four main parts: The Christian
quarter, Muslim quarter, Jewish quarter,
and the Temple Mount. Same as religion,
there are three main languages spoken in
Israel. Those three languages are Hebrew,
English, and Arabic. The population is
growing rapidly. In 2009, the population
was 763,600, and in November 2010, the
population was 780,200 people.
! Today, people choose to live in
Jerusalem due to its holiness and not so
much because of businesses. Jerusalem is
now ranked the #5 most holy city in the
world. Many tourists are attracted to the
landmarks and history of Jerusalem,
considering it goes back so far. Every
religion that lives in Jerusalem goes on a
day, chosen by their god, to praise their
god. Today, Jerusalem is high on the list of
holiest cities in the world, and by hat is
happening now, will probably stay that way
for a long time in the future.

The Amazing Seoul!
I will persuade you!
! Visiting Seoul is like a fantasy coming true right in front of you!
It used to be united until the war when the place got destroyed. The Koreans
just couldnt agree with each other coming from the 2 different parts, so their
second instinct was just splitting up after the 1st option (which was war) failed
and didnt lead to anywhere. It was like waking up an innocent sleeping baby!
But, with the faithful yet strong citizens, Seoul managed to become itself again
and keep ghting till the end. Seouls vivid variety of 10,627,790 people help
in keeping your company in the hard times and share the good times with you
too!
The modications in the City were enchanting! For ex: Seoul City Hall,
built by the Japanese during their brutal annexation of the Korean Peninsula
used to be a very important building where Japanese and Koreans used to do
their ofcial and nancial work etc. So previously, if you just strutted in like
you were going for a picnic, they might have just shot you, but now they wont
because of the eventual transformations! Seoul is like a bowl of sweet and sour
soup and you can never be sure of the adventure that awaits you, so get ready
be indulged by the city that may eventually become your home town!
SEOUL
And the amazing wonders hidden behind
this elegant name!
The National ower of South
Korea is Mugunghwa (rose of

The city of Seoul was established in 1948. It was founded by Taejo, the founder of the Yi
Dinesty. Before, people used to come to Seoul because they thought that they would have better
lives there and they could make worthy trades. Korea is located in between China and Japan. It is
connected to china by land but you need to cross The Sea of Japan to reach Japan. It is located 32
km from the Yellow Sea.

In Seoul, the job opportunities are endless too! You can be all sorts of things and do
whatever you like! You can be an engineer, A teacher, manager, customer support representative,
business development manager, business man, artist you would never be able to choose! Also the
major industries are waterworks/gas/electricity, wholesale and retail, construction, transportation,
real estate, finance, insurance fishery, mineral products and more! And even those are just a few of
the industries that help make your life in Seoul, Korea easier. All your needs would be taken care
of + all the needs that you need to take care of (like money for you families etc) will be like easy
chores because of the uncountable job opportunities awaiting you!

Since now Seoul is so much more developed, it has about 10,627,790 people who have
inhabited it. About 40% of the people have no religion affiliation. 29% are Christian and 29% are
Buddhist, 1% are other and 1% are Mugyo. There are obviously a lot of Koreans in Korea but there
are also Japanese, Westerners, Chinese, Southeast Asians and southern Asians too.
Every second, Seoul is growing more and more; both in people and in development and it is
on its way to becoming a very respectable and worthy country. Come visit and become a part of
this fascinating city!
My Experience In Seoul!
! Seoul is the most fantastic and interesting city that I have ever been to! The Malls are
so up-to-date and the prices are so affordable that any girl would love to live there forever!
And not to forget the activities for boys there are marvelous too! With the amazing cuisine
choice and the helpful and welcoming people there, your Stay becomes so lively! I love all
the activities you can do in Seoul. You can go to the parks, you can go to the national
museum of Korea that has over 220 pieces of work/historical monuments that are mind
blowing! Watching traditional dances and performances are so entertaining, and visiting
deep-rooted palaces even more! Visit the striking war memorial of Seoul, join food classes
and learn to make the mouthwatering, lip-smacking and delightful Korean food and so
much more! I can guarantee that even if you visit Seoul for a month, you wont have time to
everything you wanted to do! That is how good Seoul is and if you wanted to visit heaven
on earth, Seoul is just the right place for you!
How the Past affected todays life in
Seoul
Korea used to be a united, peaceful country. People from north and
South Korea used to work as a team and worked together. Korea used
to be beautiful and was the site of the worlds fair. It had towers an
old building and it was the ultimate city everyone wanted to visit.
It was all going well until USA came to war because Korea was becoming powerful and they thought Japan was next,
and since USA traded a lot with Japan they had to stop this. In 1950 the war officially began.
Actually, Korea was split up into north and south after the Korean War, the North having a communist government
and the South a democratic one. The Koreans just couldnt agree with each other coming from the 2 different parts, so their
second instinct was just splitting up after the 1
st
option (which was war) failed and didnt lead to anywhere. They made Seoul
the capital upon the founding of the Joseon After extensive searches, the founding king, Yi SongGye, decided to build his capital
where today's Seoul stands. The decision was based not onl
y on the city's geographical location in central Korea, but also using the prevalent geomantic principles of the time. It was more
peaceful there and the perfect spot!

However, the effects of war were terrifying. There was unemployment and so many people had to quit their jobs to be
soldiers and ended up losing their lives. There was poverty and families got split up into North and South Korea. More than
100,000 were killed and the country was split up into two devastated pieces of land.
After this sudden war, the countries ignored each other but till date, the North Koreans have been trying to take
control. Recently, one of the main leaders; Kim Jong Il died and that gave the South Koreans a slight spark of hope but north
Korea is determined to fight and its not over at least not yet.

(INTRODUCTION)
Korea in general used to be very eco friendly and clean. People usually took good care of
the earth and it was a very fresh and friendly place to be. But in recent years things have
been changing. People started cutting down trees for industries and building and they started
projects to help Korea develop more. People also changed the city for money because after the
war, they were becoming poorer and poorer so they needed more inhabitants to come and
start making businesses in Korea. Before, Seoul wasnt the ninth largest consumer of the ozone
(depleting chlorouorocarbons) layer but now, it is! Korea intends on spending 194.4 billion
won ($193 million) on xing and rehabilitating the city.
Seoul used to
have
minimized
buildings and
there werent
too many of them as you can see in this picture. Today,
there are soil erosions and flooding because of
deforestation, pollution, too much land use and less
habitat preservation. In North Korea, before the war
started, they built a dam at the base of Mount
Kumgang (1638 meters deep). It caused consternation
in South Korea during the mid 1980s. In 1987 the
Kumgang San Dam was a major issue because it took up a lot of space and impacted the environments.
Now days as we can see, technology really affects and changes the environments.
Do you see the difference? The same exact same
place! But since more people are coming in everyday
and new businesses are starting, it has entirely
changed and taken anew form! This picture was taken
in 2003! Since more people have moved into Seoul
overtime, There is more traffic, additional high rise
building, less urban surroundings, climate changes
and a lot more. Actually the climate changes are
affecting the water supply and food security. Weather changes have been noticed and more diseases are
spreading and if we want to make a change and save our planet, we have to make that change NOW!

: People from Hong Kong think that temples should always have hills behind them and face the sea for good luck.
: Feng Shui mirrors are hung on houses, shops and restaurants to prevent evil spirits from entering the buildings.
The mirrors are octagonal and have a concave mirror inside, so when the spirit looks at it he becomes scared of his
image and goes away.
: Chinese lucky numbers are 2, 3, 6, 8 and 9. Unlucky numbers are 1, 4 and 7 (4 and 7 sound like the Chinese word
for death)
:Goldfish are a favorite of the Chinese and many exotic fish are kept such as the dragon-eye fish with big bulbous
eyes. Goldfish originate from China and are believed to bring good luck. The word for fish, Yu, means prosperity and
good fortune.
: At funerals the Chinese burn paper representations of things, such as money, to help the dead person have an
easy after-life.
: Hong Kong is very hilly and there are outdoor escalators in the Central district of the Island.

KUALA LUMPUR
PAST AND PRESENT
Kuala Lumpur used to be nothing but a muddy place in
the middle of Klang and Gombak River. Then
everything changed in 1857 when Raja Abdullah and
his brother (Raja Jumaat) sent 87 Chinese laborers up-
river in search for veins of tin. They found some tin in
the meeting point of the Klang and Gombak Rivers and
named it Kuala Lumpur (muddy conuence). Kuala
Lumpur became a tin mining town and was know as
The land of gold. Kuala Lumpur was packed with
more and more Chinese laborers brought in after many
had died from mosquito-borne, malaria. Kuala Lumpur
became a busy highway with boats packed with miners
moving upriver and boatloads of tin being sent. As a
result, the city of Kuala Lumpur was rebuilt as a new
and popular city and is now the capital of Malaysia.
In the 19th century many Indians came from South
India too, eeing a poor economy. Indians were mainly
brought in by the British to work in the rubber industry.
Kuala Lumpur is now a multi-cultural city. Its made
up of Muslims, Indians and many Chinese. The
population is now reaching over a million people and
has about 1,580,310 people. The most famous mall in
Kuala Lumpur is The Petronas Towers that was built
with Islamic structures. The building is built with
blocks of the Islamic star. Kuala Lumpur is a great
vacation and tourist spot now.

POPULATION AND RESOURCES
The city of Kuala Lumpur was established in
1857 when Raja Abdullah and his brother
(Raja Jumaat) sent 87 Chinese laborers
upriver in search of veins of tin. Kuala
Lumpur was located in the meeting point of
the Klang and Gombak rivers where some tin
was found. In the past people came to Kuala
Lumpur because of the tin and its richness,
and Kuala Lumpur was known as The
Land of Gold from its tin supplies. Many
people also came for its valuable natural
resources (water, fertile land, trees, forests,
mountains etc.). Today people come to Kuala
Lumpur because of its tourist attractions
(Petronas Towers, etc.), malls, modern
structures, education (schools), restaurants
and because it is well maintained. People
come because Kuala Lumpur is warm and
sunny all around the year and has no very bad
weather conditions to ruin the attraction. Since
every year about 100,000 people are added,
the population is now about 1,580,310
people. The population is made by the major
nationalities in Kuala Lumpur that are
Chinese, Indians and Malay. The major
industries and businesses today include rubber,
palm oil, light manufacturing, electronics, tin
mining and smelting, logging, timber
processing, petroleum production and
agriculture. Today people choose to live in
Kuala Lumpur due to its resources,
opportunities and attractions. Kuala Lumpur
is a wonderful place for everyone. There are
variety of jobs to chose from, many tourist
attractions and proper maintained hygiene and
space. In the 19th century many Indians
came from South India, eeing a poor
economy. Indians were mainly brought in by
the British to work in the rubber industry.
Therefore, Kuala Lumpur is now a multi-
cultural city. Its made up of Muslims,
Indians and many Chinese. Its one of the
most developed cities. Kuala Lumpur is kind
of like a hot cup of nasay lemak from all of
its steamy, attractive surprises!

Kuala Lumpur has really changed!!!!!
Soon, Kuala Lumpur was established as a city. Kuala
Lumpur used to be packed with miners but now its
packed with buildings and more buildings. It doesnt

attraction and more structures. Humans have used the
resources and made a lovely city! The most famous
towers in Kuala Lumpur are the Petronas Towers that
were made with Islamic structure to honor the Islamic
religion. The Petronas Towers are built with blocks of
the Islamic Star. Kuala Lumpur has really developed
from the old days. A small mining city to the capital of
Malaysia.
Kuala Lumpur was a large muddy area that wasnt
even noticed at rst until 1857 when the Chinese came
in to mine for tin. As the tin got dug and taken, many
people settled in this land. Many traders like Indian
Muslims came and soon established an ofcial religion,
Islam. More and more traders came in making Kuala
Lumpur a trade mart/center and bringing more
cultures in (Hindu or Tamil, Muslim, more Chinese).

MY STORY AND THINGS NOT TO MISS!

Come and Visit Kuala Lumpur!
MY STORY
I love the KLCC leisure place! When my
family and I rst went there, I was hooked for
hours in the pool and then in the park. We
stayed their till it was dark out and had a
small dinner/picnic their. The pool was as
amazing and beautiful as a sunrise at the
beach. The small waterfall in the pool was like
having a cool, massive, refreshing rinse of and
the small Jacuzzi was like a refreshing, warm
day in heaven. I stayed in the pool for like
ever. After that, I entered the amazing world
of large slides, swings and much more, I was
thrilled as I could ever be as a 6 year old and
enjoyed the endless time playing and going
through and over obstacles. It was like an
amazing wonderland. Its one of best places I
have been too!

MOSCOW RUSSIA ! MARCH 1, 2012
Past to present
Moscow
!!!!!!!!!!!!! Moscow is located at the
Northeastern part of Russia. Moscow,
in the days of the Czars, was the Trad-
ing post of the Northeast on the banks
of The Volga River and was also the
capital city of Russia. After WWII,
USA and Soviet Union emerged as the
two superpowers. Many countries were
supporting either of the superpowers.
Moscow virtually became the center of
half the world. Its beautiful towers
stood for years without complaint. The
city itself attracts people by the thousands. It boasts one of the best and
longest subway systems in the world. It also has the palaces from the time of the Czars such as Kremlin, and
beautiful churches. The communist government built beautiful and broad boulevards and infrastructure. Moscow
was the center of the superpower ghting for supremacy in space, military and global inuence. Moscow was a
very busy but calm and quiet place lled with people.
Then everything changed, towards the end of the Cold War (1986 onwards). The Soviet government started
spending too much money on weapons, and the Space Race. Since the soviet government owned everything, the
country was closed. Their trade with other countries was mostly in the Barter Way rather than cash.
The people started to get unhappy that their government was not providing them with enough food and health-
care. On the governments side, they were using the money still for the country to outpace the Americans. Since
the Soviet government started using too much money on weapons and the Space Race, all services and standing
military were starved of cash and support. The military police that were controlling the people of countries under
soviet rule started to become weak. The government was not spending enough on the military and the salaries
were not being paid so the morale became low. Within Soviet Russia, people were unhappy and distressed, as they
were not taken care of. The Russians were protesting in the streets of Moscow.
Soviet Union was made of many countries not only Russia. These were Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia,
Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
When the revolution in Moscow began, the people of these countries stared to declare independence, as the con-
trol from Moscow became weaker. Meanwhile, the eects of this action by the people, was so powerful and fast
that the Soviet Union did not even have time to recover. Finally, on December 25 1991, for the last time the Soviet
ag ew over the Kremlin and Soviet Russian president stepped down. A new president was elected, and the new
Russian ag ew over the Kremlin. Soviet Russia had collapsed and the countries that were under Soviet rule
were free and formed into separate countries. As a result, the city of Moscow and Russia had a big struggle recov-
ering from the complete collapse for the next ten years.
MOSCOW RUSSIA ! MARCH 1, 2012
People of Moscow
Moscow is situated on the banks of Moskova River. It lies in the western part of Russia, in the Euro-
pean part of the country. The rst reference to Moscow dates from 1147 when Yuri Dolgorukiy called upon
the prince of the Novgorod-Severski to come home, brother, to Moscow. Nine years later, in 1156, Prince
Yuri Dolgorukiy of Rostov ordered the construction of a wooden wall, which had to be built multiple times,
to surround the emerging city.
Its favorable position on the head waters of the Volga River contributed to the steady expansion. Moscow de-
veloped into a stable and prosperous city for many years and attracted a large number of refugees from across
Russia. By early 15th century, the population surpassed 50000 people. Contemporary visitors said Moscow
was awesome, brilliant and lthy. The city was resilient against re, famine and ghting. In early 17th century,
its population topped 200000 making it the largest city in the world.
In the early 1930s Josef Stalin launched an industrial revolution, instigating a wave of peasant immigration to
Moscow. Moscow became a centre of military industry. During the Cold War, the aerospace, radio-electronics
and nuclear weapons ministries operated factories and research laboratories in and out of the capital (Mos-
cow). By 1980, as much as one-third of the citys industrial production and one quarter of its labor force was
connected to the defense industry. Many residents of Moscow are migrants from the time of the Soviet Un-
ion. Throughout the 1990s, this has happened so much that the population of Moscow has gone from 2 mil-
lion to 11 million. This is around one-tenth of the population of the Philippines!
The inhabitants of Moscow are overwhelming of Russian ethnicity; the largest minority groups are Ukraini-
ans, Belarusians, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Taters. In addition, it is estimated that there were about a few
hundred thousand undocumented immigrants from Vietnam, Afghanistan and China residing in Moscow area
at the beginning of the 21st century.
The main languages spoken in Moscow are Russian Ukrainian, Belarusian, Armenian and Tartarian along with
English German and French. The religions followed in Moscow are Russian Orthodox Church, Roman Catho-
lics, Baptists, Jews and Muslims.
Today, Moscow is the most populous city in Russia and 6th populous city in the world. The city is major po-
litical, economic, cultural, scientic, religious, nancial, educational and transportation center of Russia and
the Continent .Based on Forbes 2011, Moscow had 79 billionaires, displacing New York city as the city with
the most number of billionaires!
MOSCOW RUSSIA ! MARCH 1, 2012!
How have people changed the landscape?
Did you know that Moscow was mostly rebuilt after WWII? During WWII, the Germans
continuously bombed it, because it was the capital of the Soviet Union. The German ob-
jective, was Moscow since, it will give them control of all of the Soviet Union.
Moscow, even before the war was a very beautiful city. Today it is still a beautiful
city, though in a dierent way. If you go there today, you will nd tall and huge
skyscrapers. The roads, are not really roads, they are literally boulevards. The soviet
government built all this in its glorious days. Even after WWII, Moscow continued
its massive growth. A skyscraper here, a renovated building there. At this rate of
growth, Moscow was nothing of what it used to be 10 years back. Like the picture
to the right. Does it look like its the same site?
LET ME PERSUADE YOU TO COME AND VISIT THIS WONDERFUL PLACE MOSCOW!
Moscow is as beautiful as a jewel. Moscow is situated on the banks of Moskva
River. It lies in the western part of Russia, in the European part of the country. Its
favorable position on the headwaters of the Volga River contributed to the steady
expansion. After WWII Moscow was a messed up as a shattered glass pane.
Thought Satin brought it back on track. Throughout the 1990s, the population has
grown so much that the population of Moscow has gone from 2 million to 11
million This is around one-tenth of the population of the Philippines! People come
to Moscow from many dierent places like Ukraine, Armenia, Afghanistan, China, and
Vietnam etc. If you go there today, you will nd tall and huge, skyscrapers all over the place.
Moscow will never be what it used to be like before the war. Thats how the jewel of the
Northeast is like.
LET ME TELL YOU A FUNNY STORY FORM MY CHILDHOOD.
Moscow is a lot of fun in the winter. One day my friends and me were playing in the snow when it
started to hail. We continued to play for a while more until my mum called us inside so that we will not
fall sick. I said 5 minutes mum. My mum said ne but only 5 minutes. 5 minutes later the same reply
came by my friend. My mum did not say any thing but after 5 more minutes she soaked us all in steaming
hot water.
Fortunately it was so cold outside that we only felt a tiny sting for the rst minute like a mosquito
bite. After that my friends and me never played in the snow while it was hailing ever again. In Moscow
many such things are always happening thats what makes it the beautiful and jolly place it is.

SHANGHAI

The shanghai museum used to de a
temple a long time ago. Right now
the museum looks like a 13-century
museum that lives in the past. All the
museum artifacts were in a temple in
1952. Then in 1992 the museum
changed the temple into a museum
instead of a temple. That part of
town also became part of people
square. It used to be grasslands and
marshlands. The manager of the
museum divided the museum into
ten parts instead of only 4 parts.
They wanted to change the aura of
the museum to protect the pieces of
art in the there especially the bronze
exhibit. They improved the ancient
bronze exhibit because it was the
most popular piece in the museum.
The museum had to do much better
at restoring the exhibits mostly the
bronze piece. They changed the way
the museum looked because of the
bronze exhibit they got much money
for the exhibit. They changed the
(environment/ way it looked)
because of how famous all the
exhibits were.

are around 4,017,733 people.
Singapore is a very beautiful
country with lots of tourist
attractions and other cool things.
People will want to go to
Singapore because the city is
really safe because it is a small
country so it is very easy to
secure the place. Singapore is
also a very clean country I know
this because I have been there
and they will ne you a lot of
money if you litter or anything that
requires throwing garbage where
it is not supposed to be thrown. In
Singapore they is no spray

to consequences because
Singapore does not want to be a
messy country. People also want

Singapore has a very good health
care so you do not have to keep
crossing your ngers wishing

have to worry about anything
happening to whoever is in the
hospital. Singapore has very high

SOME PICS OF
SINGAPORE.
Persuasive-ness
Singapore is a great place to live in it has many places
to go like universal studios. The Merlion and lots of fun
everyday one of my recommendations not to miss is the
Four-Seasons hotel to stay in. Then, singapore is so
great you need to stay.
[3]
The environment of Singapore!
The environment in singapore is very clean
and there is no graphite in walls or anywhere
because it is the law not to do that. In
olden times they paid people to clean
singapore like collect trash basically
those places buy trash for a lot of money that is
why lots of people have cleaned singapore.
Singapore has barely any pollution there are
little cars the reason why there are little cars in
singapore is because they raise up the prices of
the cars so much that only some people can
buy cars. Singapore doesn't allow chewing gum
because if people eat chewing gum the will just
throw it in the oor and start making singapore
dirty. Actually, Singapore does allow
chewing gum but the police makes
sure that you throw it in to the trash
bin. Singapores streets are cleaned
everyday in the morning then again in the
afternoon. Singapore is a very clean community.

TEHRAN
The Tremendous Tehran
Tehran comes from a place with
beautiful creatures such as the Persian
Leopard, the Asiatic Cheetah, and the
Persian Fallow Deer. You can experience
those lovely animals in just Iran itself!
Its also the place where Tulips blossom
by the sun and the grass elds. Sadly
since Tehrans population has grown, so
has the poverty because the country cant
feed every person single handedly or
have enough space for that many
homes. During 1796 there were only
about 15,000 people. Today there are
about 12,059,000 people still rapidly
growing. It started growing when
Mongols and Europeans came. Then
tourists came, and decided to live
there. Though the European Union is
trying to shut down all of Irans oil
industries, France and Britain depend
on their oil. Many people need Iran as a
growing country. Tehran has Beauty in
every way. You have to visit and see for
yourself.
My Experience in Tehran
I went to Tehran this summer vacation and I have to say it was fantastic! The
people are very friendly. Though there is poverty, its not ALL poverty. Tehran
has spectacular food my personal favorite was the Chelo Kabab (made with
lamb)! I love the way the serve it with Grilled tomatoes and basmati rice.
Really gives the avor. They gave so much food! We could barely eat all of
it. We had to pack it. Yes its true its a crowded City but its got pretty
marvels. We visited the Azadi Tower and it looked like a huge cool door
opening. S0 beautiful. You could never miss it! Too remarkable!

!!!!! Tehrans
Population
The city of Tehran was
established in 1788. It was
located on the foot at towering
mountain Alborz range. Also,
Tehran is the central part of Iran
(Persia).

In the past, he Europeans came to
Tehran to estimate the growth of
the population. Some Europeans
settled in Tehran, Iran. So did
the Mongols who came to destroy
and claim land and a few
Mongols settled in. Today, people
come to Tehran because there are
global market reads, very nice
amount of food they give
everyone with good
hospitality (good care), Its the
second most cheapest
country to live in. There are tons
of Historical features and
historical monuments in Iran.
The population is rapidly
increasing. Before when it was
rst established, Tehran had only
about 15,000 people. Then during
1817 it raised up to 60,000 to
70,000 people. Then at 1861 there
are about 80,000 to 120,000
people. Currently there is about
12,059,000 people just in Tehran!

According to a man named Qorban
Shahreyari, Roughly 9% of the
countrys GNI (Gross National
Income) is paid pay the
environmental damages.
Shahreyari said that there will
be damage to water resources
and forests and the greatest
environmental damages are
caused in Iran. Tehran is rated
one of the most polluted cities
in the world.
Before, Most of Tehrans air
pollution came from other
countries because Tehran is one
of the most important
industrial and commercial
centers. In 1988 almost all of
the manufacturing goods that
were produced in Iran were
produced in Tehran. After the
1979 revolution and the war
again Iran and Iraq, The
production industries slowed
down and less was made. Since
the population was growing
fast, there was more housing
built. Resent air pollution has
grown out of serious concern.
The pollution is from vehicle
production which lets out more
gas if more vehicles are
produced in factories. Factory
processes (such as vehicles
like mentioned before),
Manufacturing wastes like trash
disposal is not taken care of
well. All these things lead to
pollution. Electricity is not
handled well too. There is
Traffic management (when the
people outside in a traffic
suit uniform to handle the
traffic and make the paths
open), Vehicle examinations
(when they check your vehicle
to see if its in the correct
parking spot and if not you get
a ticket), Electric Bicycles (a
bike with an electronic motor).
These also all lead to
pollution.
Iran is trying to stop all the
air pollution and thought
creating more bus lanes,
Trucking restrictions (the
trucks are not allowed to pass
through in this particular
area), Opening up the metro
system and electronic traffic
system (traffic lights traffic
stop signs etc.).
Tehran suffers the most from
barley any water for the whole
city since its such a big
city. This is because there is
a lot of human waste clogging
the water pipes and water
profusion, increasing water
drinking hazards. The
Government of Tehran has been
pursuing a programme of
transference. To make the
transfer happen, the plan is to
select a number of large cities
and!to serve as regional centers
that would gradually achieve
the meanings of the capital
city. Everyone hopes that the
plan will work for the spare
population of Tehran.
THE PAST AND PRESENT OF
TEHRAN

Environmental Issues in Tehran
Irans nuclear project is one of the most separating disturbed regions. Iran claims that all they want
is electricity without going into the oil supply that they want to sell. Iran also wants to provide fuel for
medical devices. Europeans and Americans believe that they are using the oil for their weapons but no one
is so sure if they are using it for weaponry or not. During November 2011, the United Nations weapon
inspectors tested that claim.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (the IAEA) said that Iran has made close encounters of nuclear
plans that are still trying to be completed. The United States and the European Union took important steps
to take Iran out of the International Finance system, saying that they would not participate in central bank
and commercial banks. They also shut down all the oil, gasoline, and petroleum companies.
By February 2012, Irans economy showed tension throughout the government. It became harder to import
food. The people started getting mad and started ghting with the Israelis. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
renewed self-importance over Irans latest nuclear report. He threatened to cut down oil sales from six
countries in Europe. On February 19 The European Union decided to stop Irans oil exports, but Britain and
France depend on their oil a bit. This is bad because ever since humans have found oil the Earth, pollution
increases more everyday, and more people ght for it. Now there is so many ghts as a whole country
against another just for a product. Before they found oil there wasnt that much hassle.

Honolulu Before i t Became the 50th State
Honolulu was destroyed from the World
War II in 1941. The war and martial law
really affected the population. Everyone
was required to carry a gas mask all
around the place at all times. Barbed
wire covered the stunning beaches of
Waikiki. Everyone was forced to go back
home or to be indoors by 6:00 p.m.
because of curfews and blackouts.
Every single citizen in Hawaii was
ngerprinted. All of the phones and mail
were censored and the US military
issued US dollars, with a Hawaii imprint,
to everyone in the islands. Hawaii
residents did not really complain much
to show their loyalty.
The US ag also used to have 49 stars.
Then everything changed when Hawaii
became the 50th state of the United
States of America. The Americans
wanted Hawaii because they wanted the
land for agriculture, mostly sugar. The
Americans also wanted to keep the
naval base in Honolulu for strategic
defense reasons in case of another war
or attack. Not only did they want to do
that, but they also wanted to make
themselves stronger in trading and in
war, by making Hawaii a rest fuel stop.
Obviously the Hawaiians trusted the
Americans to make their country a
better place and also safer.
In March 1959, the US government
approved the statehood for Hawaii. 3
months later, in June 1959, the Hawaiian
people voted by an extensive majority to
accept admission to America. 2 months
later, in August 1959, Hawaii became
the 50th state of the US.
In fact America did make Hawaii a better
place. As a result, most people
celebrated, but native Hawaiians were
unhappy and wanted to remain
independent. They wanted to be
independent because they wanted to
preserve the Hawaiian culture. They also
wanted their beloved queen and king
back.
Instead of losing its culture, the
Hawaiian culture was kept, and turned
into an attraction. Due to this, the
islands turned into a major tourist
destination initially for Americans.
Agricultural land was turned into hotels
for tourism and particularly during the
1980s-1990s, Hawaii was dependent
on Japanese tourism. After becoming
the 50th state Hawaii has become the
tourist attraction as we know today.

Population
The city of Honolulu was
established in the 8th century. The
rst known settlers were Polynesian
voyagers. Honolulu is located on the
southeast coast of Oahu island. In
the past, people came to Honolulu
because they could trade with the
Hawaiians. Americans also went
there to trade their resources too.
Not only do people trade with
Honolulu, but Honolulu is also used
as a transportation crossroads in the
Pacic, connecting the east and
west. The citys stretched out
harbor facilities take care of the
cargo for several international
shipping companies. A Foreign
Trade Zone is also based in
Honolulu. People also used the
harbor, which later became an
important port for sailors. Today
people come to Honolulu because
of the activities such as surng,
water skiing, and other water sports
as well as for the beaches. It is why
Honolulu is known for tourism.
People also come for the hot
weather and for the food. The
population is around 374,701 people.
Between 2002-2009, the population
grew about 8%. 19.51% are White
people, 1.50% people are African
American, 0.18% people are
American Indian, 55.98% people are
Asian, 6.98% people are Native
Hawaiians, 14.97% are mixed race
and 0.90% are other races. The
major industries and businesses
today include agriculture, new
homes and commercial
development. In 2002, Honolulu
earned US$4.2 million from 30
aquaculture operations. Honolulu
also gained US$10 billion from
tourism. People choose to live in
Honolulu due to the all year round
weather, resources and the vast
choice of opportunities. People also
want to live in Honolulu because of
the wide varieties of activities,
especially for the water sports. On
top of these, Honolulu provides
many careers opportunities,
scholarships, volunteer services and
legal externships. Instead of
Honolulu being a Polynesian village
we know it as a tourism destination,
today. Honolulu is colorful and
beautiful just like the Hawaiian
national ower, the Yellow Hibiscus.
Did you know that Waikiki Beach
in Honolulu used to be a wetlands
area of marshes? Ancient Hawaiians
excavated sh and duck ponds and
surrounded them with groves of
coconut trees. Over periods of time,
Waikiki beach has had problems
with erosion, leading to the
construction of groins and beach
replenishment projects. To give an
example, during 1920s and 1930s
sand was imported from Manhattan
Beach, California, by ship and barge
to Waikiki Beach. Since 1970s
ocials had decided to stop
importing sand because they are
looking for ways to sustain the
existing sand by eliminating loss due
to tide ow.
Do you know why Waikiki Beach is
so famous? During the 1920s, the
growth of Waikiki as a tourism
destination started. Duke
Kahanamoku captured young ladies
hearts when they saw him in
newsreels standing on a wooden
board on a large wave o Waikiki
Beach. He became famous
worldwide as the young handsome
Hawaiian who swam like a sh while
capturing gold medals in swimming
at the Olympics. The Duke was
unlike anyone that they had ever
seen before. Because the Duke's
home and surng grounds were in
Kalia in Waikiki, Waikiki was put
on the map. The waves still roles
softly over the ancient reef at
Waikiki Beach; they are available
for the pleasure of all.
One of the most astounding times I had
in Honolulu was the incredible experience
when I went to the Atlantis Submarines! I
saw countless astonishing striking sea
creatures that swam around the fresh
ocean water, they were absolutely mind-
blowing. I saw sea turtles; eels, sharks and
many other creatures that just fascinated
me and many that were so bizarre, leaving
me speechless. The most outstanding was
denitely seeing sunken ships and
destroyed boats that lay 100 feet within
the sea! This whole journey reminded me
of animations of Atlantis that just
fascinated me so much; the voyage was an
experience that I would never forget! It
really felt like an aquarium without walls!

Persuasive paragraph
Wellington is a unique city. Is is the world's southernmost national capital and it was the first world capital to welcome
the new millennium. Also, did you know that 85% of the
plants in Wellington and New Zealand can never be
found anywhere else in the world?
Today people come to Wellington because of the
clean air, beautiful views, many cafs, museums and
art festivals. Also it is not too crowded in Wellington
and the people are very friendly. Wellingtons
population is only 393,400 people. The major
nationalities represented are European (85%), Maori
(10%), non-Maori Polynesian, Chinese, Indian, and
Southeast Asian (5%). Wellington is also locally
known as Wellywood as it is home to the world famous
Academy Award winning movie studio that made
The Lord of The Rings and Avatar lms. Wellington
was #4 in the Lonely
Planets Top 10 Cities to
Visit in 2011 and they called it the coolest little capital in the

! Impact of the past on the present
! In 1642, Abel Tasman, a Dutch explorer sighted New Zealand. British captain James Cook made three
voyages to the islands, beginning in 1769. However the rst people who lived in New Zealand were Maoris, 1000
years ago. The Maori sailed by boat to New Zealand from Polynesia.
In 1839 a London-based New Zealand Company ship arrived in Wellington Harbor. There were many Maori living
there but the Europeans (known as Pakeha) decided it would be a good place to settle. 16 Maori chiefs signed a deed
with the Europeans. The deed was to give one-tenth of the land to the chiefs and their families and nine-tenths to be
sold to British settlers who were sailing to New Zealand. Some of
the Maori chiefs werent happy.
Then in January, 1840 many European settlers arrived in
Wellington. They sent the Maoris away from their land and
built houses, churches and other buildings. The Maori werent
happy and said they didnt sell the land near the harbor and there
were many disagreements about who owned the land.
The following month on February 6, 1840, in The Bay of Islands,
the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the British and several
Maori tribes. The Treaty is an agreement in English and Maori that
granted the Queen of England governorship over New Zealand. It
stated that the chiefs could remain chiefs and keep ownership of
their lands, forests, sheries and treasures (taonga), and Maori
were given the same rights as all other British subjects.
The Treaty also stated that Maori land had to be sold to the Government rst but sometimes this was ignored and
settlers were allowed to settle in areas that still
belonged to the Maori. Also the English and Maori
versions of the Treaty were not identical and this
caused
a lot of problems.
As a result, there were many conicts between the Maori and the
Pakeha. These were called The Maori Wars and happened from 1845-1872. During the 1970s, many Maori asked
for the terms of the Treaty to be honored. They protested by marching on parliament and by occupying land. Even
today there are many protests. In 1975 a commission of inquiry was created. This is called the Waitangi Tribunal and
any Maori can make a claim at the tribunal if they think that the British Crown has not honored the terms of the
Treaty. More than 2000 claims have already been made and by 2010 NZ$950 million had been paid out. In 1987 the
government made Maori an ofcial language of New Zealand because the Waitangi Tribunal decided that the Maori
language was a treasure (taonga) and therefore protected by the Treaty.

Population of
Wellington
! The city of Wellington was established in
1840 and located 175 E 42 S. Polynesian
voyagers discovered Wellington 1000 years
ago, and when the rst European settlers

many Maori people living there. These
Europeans planned the town of
Wellington in 1840.
Wellington is

beautiful new land. The boat trip from Europe to
New Zealand often took 124 172 days.
Today people come to Wellington because
of the clean air, beautiful views, many cafs,
museums and art festivals. Also it is not too

Going to Wellington
f rom t he Sout h

beautiful ferry trip
and I recommend it to
everyone. You go to a
small town called

located at the tip of

which divides New

Nort h Isl and and
S o u t h I s l a n d .
Wellington is situated
at the bottom of the
North Island. The

you see a lot of sea

watch out for the

Because the ferry is
moving and there is a

Change to the
Environment
! In January 1855,
there was a huge 8.2
magnitude earthquake
near Wellington which
destroyed lots of
buildings and changed
the landscape. At that
time there were about
6000 people living in
Wellington. Many houses
on the beach front were
ooded by huge waves.
Approximately 4/5s of
the chimneys in
Wellington fell down.
Many wooden houses
and brick buildings
collapsed and
government ofces were
destroyed so now
buildings and houses in
Wellington are built
following strict building
codes to be strong in
earthquakes.
When
Wellington
was rebuilt the
main
commercial
buildings were
made of brick
so they would
not burn down,
and most of the homes
were
rebuilt
in
wood.
!In
some
places
near the
harbor the land went up
by 1.5 meters. Later they
could build roads and
railways on that land.
The roads are now
concrete instead of dirt.
There was a canal and
the Basin Lake but after
the earthquake it
disappeared and now it is
called the Basin Reserve
and it is famous for
where cricket is played.

REASONS TO GO TO AUCKLAND
Auckland is like a bag of lollies. It can be sweet and beautiful but it
can also be sour and exotic. Auckland is a city that tted into anyones
life style and always leaves people wanting to go back. Auckland the
biggest city in New Zealand and that is why each year 58% of
international students in New Zealand decide to live in Auckland
meaning no matter where your from or what you believe in you will
always be able to nd someone like
you. New Zealand is also a very
peaceful country. Even in World War
I no ghting actually happened in
New Zealand which means the only
changes to the landscape where made
by the people living there who have
done pretty well at keeping the nature
alive. Auckland has a beautiful bit of
land outside the city. This is because
Auckland was built around volcanoes
but the last one that erupted was 400
years ago. You will have fun in
Auckland no matter what your life style so come and check it out and we
promise you will have a good time.

Where is Auckland
Auckland is in a very convenient place. If want
specics Auckland is 36, 83' S, 174, 75' E. If you
want a general position it is in the north area of
the north island. The closest major city is
Hamilton, which is roughly 112 km from
Auckland.
Fun Fact
Did you know that Auckland used to be the
capital. In fact the whole reason it was made was
to be the capital. In 1840 William Hobson (the
governor at the time) wanted a capital for the
country and so Auckland was made. A year later
it was declared the capital but 25 years later
Wellington was made the capital instead.
Although Auckland is the bigger Wellington is
still the capital.
Fun Ride
When I visited Auckland as a kid the best part was Snowland. It was
brilliant. This was the rst time I had ever skied before and after this I
will always want to go skiing again. The best part was on our last day was
when my older brother and my dad grabbed me and pulled me up to the
top of a gigantic hill and before any of the workers could stop them, they
dropped me. I shot down going incredibly fast. I then had to desperately
turned left just avoiding a massive, thick, hard tree. By then I was starting
to take control until I hit a jump. I ew over two skiers like an eagle but
when I hit the ground I started to wobble dangerously and before I knew it
I had lost control. I started going really, really fast and then I fell onto the
soft, cold snow. It was a surprisingly soft landing and I only got a few
bruises. And thanks to the care and friendliness of the people helping there
I was feeling better in no time. Although I ended up crashing it was still
heaps of fun.

Changes to the land
Lots of changes happened to the
surrounding area of Auckland. Even now
it is still being enlarged. Since Auckland is
such a fast growing there are more roads
going in and through the city which also
creates lots more noise. Because it is such a
big city there is lots of noise from cars,
celebrations and
people simply living
their lives.
Auckland is still
growing today. It
started growing as
soon as it was
founded. As a big city
it has always been
keeping up with
technology. In 1865
Auckland got its rst
street lights and then
in 1866 they got their rst piped water
supply (from the Domain Dam). Then in
1872 Auckland a railway was constructed.
In 1902 the electric tramways started.
Even now Auckland is not an old city and
is keeping up with high tech cities
elsewhere in the world.
Auckland was built around volcanoes.
In the last 250,000 years 48 volcanoes
have erupted. The latest and largest of
these happened 600 years ago when the
volcano Rangitoto erupted. The rst ones
to erupt were Onepoto Domain and
Pupuke. The volcanoes are actually a very
good thing for Auckland because the
volcanoes make the ground fertile, the
volcanic rocks are good building materials
and the volcanoes look very nice.
Auckland became a big city because
of its good farming land along with coal
mining and timber. It also had a brilliant
harbour that they would soon enlarge.
This meant that it already had a lot of
money because of all these
things.
Auckland has always kept up
with the ages and has become
big modern city. Lots of
people live there and
although there will always be
a risk living there from
volcanoes it is still a great
place to live. It was built to be
the capital but this was
shifted to Wellington in 1865.
AUCKLAND
World War One
No ghting actually happened in New
Zealand but it still had a big affect on the
country and people of New Zealand. It did
not have any effect on the landscape but it
did have a big affect on the economy,
peoples lives and the alliances it still has
today. We celebrate a day for the Australian
and New Zealand men and women who
fought in all wars. That day is ANZAC day.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New
Zealand Army Corps which was formed in
World War I (WW I).
When WW I started the New Zealand
population was just over a million. They
alone sent 100,000 men and women to help
in the ghting. The New Zealand soldiers
worked very closely with the Australians and
were called the ANZACs. As a result of the
war 18,000 New Zealanders died and
40,000 were wounded. The ANZACs also
fought in some very major battles. The most
famous one of those is the Battle of Gallipoli
against Turkish soldiers in 1915.
The reason ANZAC Day is celebrated
is because such a high amount of the either
population was affected by going to war or
having family member go. New Zealand had
only changed from being a British colony to
an independent country in the British
Empire in1907. So WW I was the rst time
New Zealand had to make its own choice to
ght in a war.
Another thing bad thing that happened
when the troops came back is that they also
carried back a disease called the Spanish
Inuenza which then spread into the general
public. In 1918 about 8,600 people died of
this u in just 2 months. Also when the
troops came back from 1918 onwards the
economy was quite unstable but then started
to grew strongly until 1922 it dropped back.
New Zealand already had an alliance with
Britain and when Britain needed help New
Zealand and Australia both made the ANZACs.
This assured Britain that New Zealand would
help them in future wars to come like World War
Two.
So with lots of New Zealanders dying,
the economy changing and a stronger
alliance with Britain and Australia are all
affects that WWI had on New Zealand.
Although there was no ghting in New
Zealand it changed a lot of other things.
The alliance that they had with Britain
strengthened which led to them helping
Britain in World War Two.
People in Auckland
Auckland was established in 1840 when
the governor of New Zealand, William
Hobson wanted a capital city for the new
colony of New Zealand. It ofcially became
the capital in 1841. It was located in the
north of New Zealands north island and
has the biggest natural harbor in New
Zealand. In 1865 Wellington was made the
capital instead even though Auckland was
the bigger city. To this day Auckland is still
the biggest city in New Zealand and is home
to roughly one third of the population.
I think the British settlers came to live in
Auckland because there were more
opportunities in New Zealand and the
chance to live a better life. In the rst year
there where nearly 2,000 people living in
Auckland. People also came to Auckland
because of the climate and the good farm
land in the district. Because it is in the north
of New Zealand it has a warmer climate. It
also became a large city with lots of job
opportunities. It was a nice clean city with
lots of good places to live.
Auckland is a fast growing city and
people still come to live there today from
many other countries. This is because it has
many job opportunities, is a democracy with
freedom, safety and fairness. It is just
generally a nice place to live in. Auckland
has a great education system and is
respected all over the world for its higher
education system. For example, each year
58% of international students in New
Zealand decide to live in Auckland. Most big
companies New Zealand have their head
ofce in Auckland and there are plenty of
jobs. Some of big companies are Air New
Zealand, Fisher & Paykel (kitchen
appliance), Fletcher Buildings, Fontera (one
of the worlds biggest dairy companies) and
the Bank of New Zealand.
In 2010 there were 1,377,200 people
lived in Auckland. The top 4 nationalities in
New Zealand are ordinary New Zealanders
then English people, Maori people and
Pacic islanders. New Zealands mixed
population means that there are lots of
different religions in New Zealand. 53.6% of
the population is Christian, including 14.7%
Anglican, 13.4% Roman Catholic and
10.6% Presbyterians. There are also Hindus
(1.7%), Buddhists (1.4%) and Muslims
(1.0%). Non-religious people make up
48.4% of the population. Even though it is a
multicultural society the main language
spoken is English. In 2006 about 4% of the
population spoke the native Maori language.
So over all Auckland is a multicultural
city, with a warm climate, good
infrastructure and good jobs. There are nice
green areas and beaches outside of the city
where people can always escape from city
life if they want a break. I think that it is
simply a great place to visit or live.

Top ten things to do in
Auckland
Rangitoto Island
The most visible landmark around
Auckland is without a doubt, Rangitoto
Island. The volcano island is stunning and
makes for a wonderful hike. From brilliant
trees and plants to old World War Two
illustrations, there is a lot to see on the
island of Rangitoto.
The Auckland Art Gallery
For a sight of New Zealand culture, the
Auckland Art Gallery is the best point in the
country. In a beautiful building that
overlooks central Auckland from Albert
Park, a walk through the gallery is a great
lesson on New Zealand art.
Auckland Zoo
A zoo may seem like easy way to kill a
few hours but in Auckland, it is the
opposite. With exhibits of brilliant New
Zealand plant life, the zoo is miles in front
of most other zoos. If you have a family, a
spear afternoon and a want for a good time
this is denitely the place to go.
The Sky Tower
The Sky Tower is the tallest man made
structure in Auckland. At a height of 328
meters tall it has a breath taking view. You
go up in a glass fronted lift and if you feel
brave enough you can even jump off ! If not
you can relax at the Sky lounge, Have some
sea food at the Observatory Restaurant or
even eat at Orbit, Aucklands only 360
degrees turning restaurant.
Rugby
Auckland was the city that hosted the
2011 Rugby World Cup. This is proof that
Auckland is a good place for major events.
Auckland has a great community and when
something as big as this happens it really
shows how well the community can bond. If
you love rugby this is the place to be. There
are lots of people who love rugby just like
you.
West Haven Marina
West Haven marina was purchased by
the city council for $46 million. It is one of
the largest and well-equipped marines in the
Sothern hemisphere. It is also a very
beautiful place.
Wine Tours
Aucklands wine tours attract many
people from around the world as well as
wine enthusiasts. Some of these big wineries
are Kumeu, Huapai, Piha, Matakana,
Waiheke Island and the spectacular award
winning winery and vineyard park of Villa
Maria Estate.
Mount Eden
. Mount Eden is 196 meters tall and is
the tallest volcano in the area. You can go
up on foot or in a car but whichever one
you choose it will be worth it when you
reach the top. It has a stunning 360 degree
sight of Auckland and all its harbors.
One Tree Hill
The One tree hill has now become no
tree hill when the tree was cut down in fear
of it toppling because of the wind but that
doesnt mean its not worth a visit. It is 183
meters tall and has a birds eye view over
New Zealands
biggest city.

Sculpture Park was
established in 2004
and contains many
local sculptures. It
is easy to walk
around the and
look at the
beautiful art work
for a very long time
and if you want a place to just have a rest
while walking around looking at art this is
the place to go.
