My experience on Google Maps (2b)

I am done with my Google maps. Let me give you a short description about it. I went to KL with my family just last week and boy, it was fun! We managed to go to Genting Highlands (which was my first time going there), The KL Petronas Twin Towers and Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa which had a big theme park right behind it. There's the water park, extreme park, wildlife park and scream park all packed into one gaint theme park. When I went to Genting Highlands, I went to the indoor theme park and played some of the rides there. The place was packed like sardines! At the twin towers, we did not manage to get a tour to the sky bridge in between the twin towers but we had fun shopping for some souvieniers for our neighbours and for myself. At the Sunway Resort's theme park, we did not have much time so we went to the water park and played there. They had a lot of facilities there!
Here is the Google Maps that I have done.

My experience on Google Maps 2(a)

Using Google Maps was easy as I have Google Earth in my computer. But the application itself was brand new to me. After a look at the video, I managed to familiarize myself to the new program. I live in Ang Mo Kio, so it would take me at most 1/2 an hour to reach SST. (via PIE, CTE or AYE) My parents would normally send me to school. Let's try going to SST via the PIE. First, my father/mother would have to head west on Ang Mo Kio Ave 3 towards Ang Mo Kio Street 42. Secondly, they would have to turn left at Ang Mo Kio Ave 6. Then they would continue to drive to Marymount Rd. When they reach Marymount Lane, they would have to turn right and turn left on Lornie Rd. After that, they would continue onto Adam Rd and exit via the ramp to PIE (Tuas). They would continue driving on the PIE until they reach exit 27 towards AYE. They would then merge onto Clementi Ave 6 and drive straight. Lastly, they would make a U-turn at Commonwealth Ave W and I will arrive at SST.

Besides this, Google Maps also allows me to monitor the traffic conditions at that time, so I can plan my trip ahead. And if my parents could not drive me to school, I could check Google Maps and see what public transport I can take to get me to SST.

I think Google Maps is a system that people can reley on to plan thier trips to places in Singapore. But if the system should break down, we could not check the traffic conditions and the routes that we could take to reach our destinations. So we should not reley on it too much.

(sorry if I did not write my post correctly, I did not quite understand  what I need to do)

My experience in creating this blog

This is my second blog that I am currently managing. But I am still not that good at managing blogs. But while I am making this blog, I feel that this is about my life, my life in SST, a new journey that has already started. By blogging, I could keep in touch with my new teachers and friends, share information that I have found, and also do homework together with my friends.

My feelings and reactions

I chose this picture to represent my feelings & reactions when I received the letter that I could go to SST. I felt as if I was like a flower, blomming into a whole new world that I am about to discover, adapting to changes that I am about to have.I also felt happy, being able to have beautiful bright colours to make people feel happy and safe.
