and we play with each other. I also like Chinese New Year,

:02:12.:02:17.

cos it's a time for me to get Chinese New Year -

:02:18.:02:20.

when a lot of people from places like America and many Asian

:02:21.:02:25.

countries get together Traditionally here in the UK

:02:26.:02:27.

New Year's Day falls on However, Chinese New Year is based

:02:28.:02:33.

on the ancient lunar calendar, This means the date

:02:34.:02:39.

changes every year. The Chinese calendar also celebrates

:02:40.:02:44.

a different animal each year. There are 12 in total, and this year

of martial arts school. But that is not all -

and performers, including this 15-year-old gymnast who's come

all the way from China to take part. I get to meet so many new people

when we do these performances. Like, I get to spend time

:03:25.:03:30.

with my friends and family, but more importantly I get to meet

becoming really good friends, and those friendships just

:03:37.:03:39.

last for a lifetime. And if you don't know what Chinese

:03:40.:03:43.

animal you are and want to find out, don't worry, we've got

:03:44.:03:47.

you covered online. To the story of a

:03:48.:03:50.

pretty epic journey. This little guy took

:03:51.:03:55.

a wrong turn and ended up This incredible turtle has been

:03:56.:03:57.

on a journey like no other. Last November, she was discovered

:03:58.:04:06.

off the coast of Anglesey in Wales. What's even more amazing is that

:04:07.:04:11.

Olive Ridley turtles are usually found in warmer waters around Mexico

:04:12.:04:14.

and southern parts of the US. So, how did she end up

:04:15.:04:20.

off the coast of Wales, That's what this team

:04:21.:04:22.

are trying to work out. Menai, as she has been named,

:04:23.:04:27.

is being cared for at the Royal They've never seen an

:04:28.:04:30.

Olive Ridley turtle before. She's the first to be spotted

:04:31.:04:35.

in British waters since records

:04:36.:04:37.

began almost 270 years ago. Staff caring for her

:04:38.:04:42.

noticed she was unable but that hasn't stopped her

:04:43.:04:44.

from munching her way She's a real character,

:04:45.:04:48.

now we've got to know her. She is eating well, demolishing

:04:49.:04:52.

a couple of kilos a day. These turtles can swim long

:04:53.:04:58.

distances, but it's thought that Menai drifted in strong

:04:59.:05:01.

currents to the UK. She's getting all

:05:02.:05:04.

the care she needs. A team of carers apply cream to her

:05:05.:05:07.

shell to stop it from drying out. Menai will be returned to Anglesey,

:05:08.:05:12.

then she will hopefully be fit enough to be released back
