Pat a cake

Pat a cake, Pat a cake,baker's man

Bake me a cake as fast as you can;

Pat it and prick it and mark it with a ''B'',

And put it in the oven for baby and me.


Pat a cake :  The earliest publication of this song is 1698.......It's about the tradition of decorating cakes with the name or initial of a chield-a practice that is still carried out today......The song is usually accompanied by a clapping game....

Let's go hiking!!!

Is your country mountainous or is it as flat as a pancake? Funny question, right? However, believe it or not there exist countries with just a few small hills such as Kuwait, Belarus, Latvia or Gambia. As I am the mountain lover, I am lucky my country is one of the mountainous ones because I do love hiking and walking in the nature, especially in the forests of the mountains, which I find very…

And therefore, most…

Dear, Rain

It is raining outside. I love smell of the rain. I love its atmosphere which makes me drowsy. I'm sitting down. I'm thinking. I'm reminiscing the memories that had gone away. I'm smiling and pensiving. Now I know, everything is just for temporary. Just like the rain... I can't even hold up a drop of the rain.
