  1. How long did it take to get up Mount Everest?
  2. How old were you when you climbed  Mount Everest?
  3. When you reached the top on a scale of 1-10 how did you feel?

  5. Did you ever want to do it again?

My favourite actually is pancakes
Here is the recipe

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth. ...
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.

  1. Kia ora VJ,

    Well done on another day of activities! I love the detail you have put into your writing, thanks for crediting your Mum for the photo. Your pancakes look and sound delicious. I am on pancake duty on Christmas day this year. I love topping my pancakes with berries and bacon, yum!

    Your hotel sounds awesome! Good choice on Paihia as the destination for your hotel, it is so beautiful there! Would you have rooms with ocean views? If so, would they cost more than the rooms with a garden or carpark view?

    I look forward to reading more blogposts from you soon!
    Have a very Merry Christmas VJ.

    Nga mihi,

  2. Kia Ora Victor Jack,

    You have come up with some awesome questions for Sir Edmund Hillary. I wish he would be able to answer your questions so we could know the answers. Have you ever climbed a mountain before? I have climbed a few of the ‘mountains’ in Auckland like Mount Eden but it is more like a steep hill than a mountain!

    Yum! Pancakes! Have you had a chance to make pancakes during the holidays yet? I love making hotcakes which are very similar but take a bit more work. My favourite hotcake recipe is this one from Chelsea Winters:
    What are your favourite toppings for your pancakes? I think my all time favourite is bacon, maple syrup and banana. But I also like peanut butter and banana sometimes as well.

    You hotel has a great view and it’s awesome to see that you have really thought about all the extra things you would put in your hotel. I think a pancake bar would be awesome, the guests could watch a chef cook their pancakes then the guests could put their own toppings on their pancakes. What made you decide to have your hotel in Spain?

    I hope you have a lovely Christmas with your whanau and I look forward to reading more of your blogs as the summer continues!

    Blog ya later,
