Bug News Lite
(BEST LETTER) Dear Alex, Tampi & Lele
I love to do lots of things on a sunny day, like flying kites, going to the beach, cycling, having a picnic and a work-out.
My favourite is having a playtime on the beach, building sand castles and playing in the sea. I hope I can play with all of you on the beach one day.
- Charlene Tan Rui Xian, 7 Years Old


Hi Alex and Tampi,
I always pray that it's sunny on weekend morning or evening. My mum will bring me and my sister to the park nearby to play. Other than my water bottle and snacks, I will bring along my favourite MALA Paint Box Set and a drawing block. I love drawing things that I see in the park, especially dogs. I also love to trace the leaves' shape after pasting them on my drawing block.
- Gina Tan Xin Ying, 8 years old

Dear Alex and Tampi,
I love Sunny days because I can go to parks and swim in my condominium pool. After going to a park, I may draw the picture of it on a piece of paper. Sometimes, I will ask my parents to bring me to Småland too.

(BEST LETTER) Hi Alex, Tampi and lele, this is my first time writing to you. Here are some recycling tips:
1. Use both sides of paper.
2. Do not turn on the switch when you are not in the room
3. When you want to throw away something that can be recycled, please don’t throw it away. Recycle it. And I wish that I am the winner for this because my room is very untidy and I would love to win Pysslingar wall pockets.
- Cadence Chua, 7 Years Old


Dear Alex, Tampi and Lele, I recycle by using rough paper to write or draw before sending it to the recycling bin(like how I am writing to you now!). When I make birthday cards for my family members, I do not use cut out letters from construction paper, I use cutouts from magazines ‘like this!’ Although it is time-consuming, I think it looks artsy. Bye for now!

Yo Alex, Tampi and Lele! I just love to recycle. We can recycle by not throwing things that are made of paper, plastic and cans but make sure they are really not able to be used. My school has this activity called Green Tuesday. On Tuesday, they encourage pupils to recycle. I would love to bring newspapers for your paper porridge. But, I’m not used to going to IKEA all the time. You can recycle my letter if you read it and if it is piling in your letter box!☺
- Charmaine Lim, 10 years old


Dear Alex & Tampi, My sister and I are thinking about your real names! My sister asked “Is Tampi called Tampines” We thought for a while and I asked “Then, is Alex’s real name called Alexandra?” Both of us stared at each other. Now, please read this poem. Alex & Tampi (clap), Alexandra & Tampines (clapx2) Alexandra equals to Alex (clapx3) Tampines equals to Tampi(clapx3) Alex & Tampi, that’s what history should be (clapx11).
- - Siew Shi En, 9 Years Old


Hi Alex and Tampi,
I know you like paper porridge so I made up a poem: Paper porridge hot,paper porridge cold,paper porridge in the pot nine days old. Some like it hot, some like it cold, some like it in the pot nine days old.
- Saksh Aggarwal, 9 years old


Hi Alex, Tampi and LeLe, I started reading newspapers last month to improve my English. After reading, I will place the newspapers in the recycling bins near my house. The colours of the bins are so bright it is impossible to miss them! I also bring my newspapers to IKEA to feed your growing tummies. I always feel happy because my parents told me that I am doing a good act by protecting our environment. I am soooo excited to try out the paper mache using newspapers for recycling that you taught me in the bug news!! I hope I can win the Pysslingar wall pockets so that I can store my newspapers neatly before bringing them to recycle.

It is my first time writing to you. I like the June holidays because I can visit you! I will always try my best to bring newspapers for your paper porridge, but please do not eat my letter!

Dear Alex and Tampi and LeLe, during the June holiday, I am going to attend some workshops. I have Math, cupcake making and photo frame making workshop. Some of the days, I am going to use it for studying. As my weakest subject is Maths, I am going to buck up for Math. I am also going to study for other subjects. This June, I am not going to other countries as my mother and father have to get my brother ready for PSLE. I hope that June is the best month of the year! =)
- Poon Le Xuan, 10 years Old


Hi Alex, Tampi(and Lele), this is my first time writing to you. I like the June holiday because I can visit Småland more often and I can also draw and write more to you. I love the food at IKEA restaurant especially the chicken wings and drinks. Every time I visit there, I can eat at least 3 chicken wings and drink two cups of soda. I have also planned to go on a vacation, to play in the park and playground and to do some revision.

Hi Alex, Tampi and Lele, this is my first time writing to you. I love everything about IKEA. The hot dogs, ice-cream and pancakes too! I love holidays, I can wake up later than usual.

Dear Alex, Tampi and Lele,
I am extremely excited to write my first letter to you! During this June holidays, I am going to Manado for a mission trip with my family and church friends. We are also celebrating my sister's 5th birthday at IKEA, where we all love to go! My sister would love to choose an IKEA soft toy for her birthday present. She thinks the IKEA soft toys are so cuddly! I've got a riddle to share with you:

A: The outside!

Hope you like my letter!

(BEST LETTER) "Hi Alex and Tampi (Lele too!), years pass by so fast and now I'll be turning 11 next year! I do have some suggestions before I leave to make Småland the best place in the world!

1. We can have fancy decorations in the Magical Forest during festivities.
2. You can set up a corner for småles to draw since most of us are too tall to enter the play area.
3. You can create a special portal on the website for smales to log in and access extra features and games!"

I wish you will build another store!"

"My Småland story - “Welcome to Småland” Alex, Tampi and Lele greeted. This is the magical forest where many småles meet.

A wonderful place to be in!"

"Hej, Alex & Tampi and Lele! I would like to give a few suggestions to improve Småland for other younger småles to enjoy. Such as, a bigger shoe to climb, a larger berry pit and a higher slide.

It is the best place for friends and other people to have fun together! The bug news is great with all the fun activities, wonderful games and information. I also love the kids' menu as there are sumptuous and delightful delicacies which can brighten a disappointed kid. How about making a Lele mascot? I am sure all kids would admire it. Last but not least, I hope you have more items for us kids to exchange so we have many things to choose from!"

"Hi Alex and Tampi! It's my first time (and last!) sending a letter to you.  In the last Bug News, småle Koo Ning wrote that she would like a Quingdom for teenagers. I agree too! Although I don't visit the Småland play area, I like collecting stickers and exchanging for stuff. I'm eyeing the wallet but my parents don't bring me to IKEA."
- Tham Yu Qi, 11 years old


"Dear Alex, Tampi and LeLe, I just went to Småland and I met many of my school friends there! Småland is a place where I can meet my friends but there I have one feedback. Many people throw balls out of that area and it ends up hitting people who are outside the magical forest. I love Småland and it is my third home other than school and home. I think that the Ministers have done a great job in making Småland a great place and improving it greatly. I also love the yummy kids menu for kids! It is delicious, scrumptious and healthy! Thanks to all the ministers"

My parents like it too, so we often order it when we are there. The magical forest is fun. However, I wish that you could have a playground for teenagers because my brother wants to come too! (My brother is 16 years old). Please publish my letter in the Bug News. I wish to become a Minister too!"

Title : Real key to my heart
"When I am sad, you were there to hold my hand. You make me smile everyday. It is a big big world. It is easy to get lost in it. We can make the sun shine in the moonlight, we can make the grey clouds to the blue sky. I will take you to the moon in the sky. You’re always there to hold my hand, you stand by me, you understand. When I’m with you I feel so glad, the truest friends I ever had.."

When I turn 11, I will never forget Småland!"
