Asked at the International School's Fun Fair at the Renakse Hotel

Geertje Van Zoggel, 5, Holland

"I like to eat the fish and ride on elephants and horses here. In Holland - I miss children; my friends."

house and my school back home but I like this school more."

Madelaine Abulencia, 4, Philippines

"I like the Boueng Kok restaurant - I like the fish there. I miss my cousins and going to the beach with them

in the Philippines."

Abhishek Sinh, 7, India

"I enjoy riding elephants, playing in my house - everything. I like to run races with my friend. In India

I miss boat rides, games, and my teacher there."

Molika Oum, 11, United States

"I like living here because I can see my parents' family and meet a lot of people from different countries.

I like my school a lot. My class has only eight students so we get a lot of attention and can talk together with

our teacher as a friend. I miss my sister and brother back in Long Beach and my friends there. I also miss shopping."

Rene Pereira, 10, India and Nepal

"The people here are very friendly. The people in my school are like family, like your brother and sister.

In Nepal I miss my friends and what we used to eat - chapati and puri. In India, I miss the wildlife and going

into the jungle, seeing the monkeys and beautiful birds. I miss my grandparents in India also."

Cary Dorsey, 11, United States

"I like it here because I have lots of friends. Also it's quiet and there's lots of trees-not like Bangkok

at all with the buildings everywhere. I just like the peace and quiet. In the states I miss my family. We used

to go on family outings and picnics."
