Medina Zaharah Binti Onn
Age 8, Girl Malaysia
As a Muslim, I have to pray 5 times a day. Sometimes I go to the mosque to pray. The muezzin oodem panel is used to separate men and women. I like to be in the mosque, and the sound of Quran makes me calm and relax. The dome makes me feel like I’m in a kaleidoscope, and it’s so beautiful.

Our family went on a trip to Yamanashi Prefecture to go to a hot springs. I enjoyed looking up at beautiful Fujisan, the tallest mountain in Japan. Fujisan towered over everything and glistened in the sunlight. Fog surrounded Fujisan’s peak. The turning leaves on the trees were more interesting than just green leaves and made a beautiful sight. The surface of the hot spring bath reflected the image of Fujisan, and the reflection shook when we moved in the water. When I put my face down onto the water, the ripples and the light glimmered like jewels.
