These exhibits were attractive and colourful for they had been prepared and designed well by the students with guidance from the Art teachers. The students were obviously enthusiastic about their work; for each item was rendered carefully and lovingly without the slightest trace of sloppiness. There were many sections to interest parents and friends who came to see the work of their children. The painting of nature, Malaysian scenes, flowers and fruits was of an exceptionally high standard.
Other items such as puppets, dolls and articles of embroidery were admired, too. In the geography section, there were clay models of physical features like hills, mountains and plateaus set in a natural environment of green landscape with rivers meandering through the land.
Some articles like flowers made from silk were for sale and ladies readily bought these items. Our school exhibition was appreciated by all. These goes the daily bell at An audible sigh of relief can be heard in each classroom as the students immediately rush to the school tuck-shop.
Hungry and thirsty students make straight for the mee-man, the iced-drinks seller or the curry and rice stall, for many have come to school early in the morning without any breakfast as there is hardly any time to eat. I find the stall-holders busy serving food to the students, who are impatient and sometimes downright rude if the stall-holder is slow in serving them. The chatter of students, the noise of frying noodles, the chopping up of ingredients and the delicious smell of food floating in the air contribute to the typical tuck-shop environment which makes one hungry and eager to eat the daily snack.
The unwelcome bell goes at It is another rush, this time for lessons which begin promptly and late-comers will be punished. Recess time is a welcome break, for hungry stomachs are filled and dry throats are refreshed with iced drinks. Now the tuck-shop is quiet except for the clatter of plates, glasses and cups being washed by the stall-holders, who then rest till the next session.
Every year, all schools throughout Malaysia celebrate Teachers' Day - a day to honour and remember our teachers who are our leaders and who guide us in our education during our youthful days. Teachers are very much a part of a student's life as they influence a child, right from Kindergarten days to Upper Secondary days; and perhaps beyond. It is they who prepare the child for his or her life in society.
Teachers' Day is held to show our appreciation to our teachers who work hard and bear patiently with us. In most schools, pupils bring gifts of flowers, presents and other. A party is held where tasty refreshments and drinks are served in the classroom for both the teachers and the students. Everyone has a good time and the day ends earlier than usual. Teachers play a very important role in the development of a child.
However, their effortsare seldom appreciated. That is why Teachers' Day is so significant to teachers; it is only on this day that they are appreciated and honoured for their deeds. I had never seen a house on fire before, only filmed reports of it on the television. So, one evening when I heard the siren screams of a few fire-engines rushing past my house, I dashed into the street and joined a growing crowd of curious people.
We could see the fire only from a safe distance as the police had cordoned off the place for security reasons. What a terrible scene greeted my eyes! The fire was raging through the shabbily built houses. Flames leaped up hungrily to devour the wooden sheds. Fiery wooden beams crashed and glowed brightly. Thick black smoke spread all around.
Dozens of firemen from the four fire-engines were busily engaged in putting out the fire. The rushing water from several hoses soaked the houses but it did not seem to have any effect on the flames. Soon, a few firemen with hoses in their hands were seen climbing up tall red ladders of the fire-engines.
The continuous flooding from the top finally brought the fire under control. Where it had been red there was only black -- the charred remains of ruined houses. While all eyes were transfixed on the inferno, the plight of the victims did not escape the eyes of the spectators. Firemen were seen dragging wailing women away from the burning houses to a safe area. Frightened children clutched to their mothers. Some of the men simply stared speechlessly as they witnessed their homes reduced to ashes.
It took only 30 minutes before the whole squatter area, comprising mainly wooden houses, was razed to the ground. No one could salvage anything. According to a reporter,the estimated loss was around 1 million dollars.
Although the amount may seem insignificant to some, for the victims it was all they had. Their only consolation was the fact that no lives were sacrificed. Though I watched with great sympathy for the other victims of the fire, my real fear the concern were for Mani. All this while, I was straining my eyes to catch a glimpse of her.
What a relief when I finally saw her standing with downcast eyes in the midst of other fire victims. My heart went out to her. My first recollection of my childhood is the day I toppled down the stairs when I was three years old. I was so upset that I cried and cried for nearly an hour in spite of my parents' attempts at comforting me. Finally, I quietened down when I was given ice-cream and chocolates. Luckily, I was not hurt. My days were happy ones before I started going to school, as I had good neighbours to play with from morning till evening.
We played games outdoors, dressed as cowboys and Red Indians and rode about on our tricycles happily. There were also other games to occupy our time. At the age of five years, I had to attend kindergarten and this turned out to be quite an ordeal for me. To begin with, I felt very sad having to leave my mother and go off each morning to be amongst strangers. I cried and wanted my mother around, much to my teacher's displeasure.
As the days went by, however, I made friends easily in class and found company. I became happy again and actually looked forward to leaving the house each morning. I still remember those days when I was learning to ride a bicycle. I fell and bruised myself several times but I never gave up. Finally, I was able to join my friends going around the neighbourhood on my bike. Another fond memory is the end-of-year concert held at the kindergarten.
I was chosen to play the role of Jack in the play, 'Jack and the Beanstalk', and I became a celebrity overnight receiving lots of compliments for my performance. I now realise what a wonderful childhood I have had and at times wish I could relive those days. My cousin sister got married during the December school holidays and my whole family attended the function.
Dressed in my best, I went along with my family to the bride'shome where the 'Bersanding' ceremony was held. There were beautiful coloured lights and the garden was lit, too. I found flowers everywhere and guests were milling around. On a dais in front of the hall were two chairs beautifully adorned in satin and silk, with two velvet cushions for the bridal couple.
At about 7. The bridegroom, dressed in blue 'kainsongket' and looking like a Malay prince, arrived next, his retinue of young men, and took his place on the dais. Later, the bride, dressed also in blue 'songket kebaya' and 'sarung', arrived looking beautiful. Her jewellery sparkled in the light. In her hair were sweet-scented flowers and 'bunga goyang' which glistened visibly. She looked like a princess and sat next to the bridegroom.
Then the 'kadi' said prayers and everyone was ready for the 'kenduri'. The dinner had all the traditional dishes of 'beriyani', 'kurma', 'dalcha' with salad and' 'rendang'. After a sweet dessert, a 'Bunga Telur' was presented to each guest. It consisted of an egg placed in a small, decorated basket with flowers on top.
Malay music was played throughout the function and guests were entertained to some cultural shows. Then it was time to go home. We had enjoyed a hearty meal, blessed the blissful couple and were ready to leave the place.
One day, as I was returning home late from school at about 7. Dismayed to discover a group of rough-looking boys following me. As I quickened my steps, one of them, apparently the leader, obstructed my path and ordered me to surrender to him my watch and my wallet. At first I resisted, but, when he threatened to cause me harm, I quickly handed over the items.
I felt frightened and, at the same time, mad, having to part with my possessions as they were of sentimental value tome. Once they had taken possession of my properties, they laughed and made their way to a coffee shop nearby while I was left fuming by the road. At first I wanted to report the incident to the police but, later, I decided against it and went straight home.
I told my parents about it and they concluded that it was unsafe for me to walk alone. They then arranged for me to go in my neighbour's car and that solved the problem. I like to play games out in the garden. When it rains, I stay indoors and play card games and scrabble with my family. Alternatively, I indulge in doing jigsaw puzzles. I have completed several scenes and pictures. I also like to play with my puppy. It chases me round the garden and barks at me. It has learnt how to pick up a stick and bring it back to me each time I throw it far off.
Besides this, I like watching my fish and feeding them with worms. They have beautiful colours and I enjoy following their movements in the water. Drawing pictures and painting them is another activity I enjoy doing. Reading story books is my favourite pastime too as there are exciting adventure and mystery stories to keep me engrossed.
Every year, after one month of fasting, Muslims celebrate Hari Raya Puasa which falls in the month of Syawal. All Muslims celebrate the day with great joy. In the morning, they go to the mosque to pray. Then, on returning home, they receive guests and relatives who come to pay them a call.
Days before, the women folk make many varieties of cakes, cookies and sweet meats. They also cook 'rendang' curries and prepare 'satay' to go with the 'ketupat'. Homes are decorated with many coloured lights all over the garden. Small lamps are lit and placed along the driveway. They receive warm hospitality and are entertained to a feast of specially prepared food. Boys and girls wear new clothes and shoes.
Girls wear jewellery and boys new 'songkoks'. The town is usually crowded with Muslims dressed gaily and going about. They visit their friends and relatives while some go to the cinemas or to the Lake Gardens. Many,however, go back to their 'kampungs' to celebrate the festival with their parents. It is also a time for family reunions. Everyone rejoices during this festive season.
The rise in discipline problems among students has been related to the lack of respect students have for teachers. This disrespect appears to be linked to the ban on caning byc lass teachers. Hence, there has been a call to put the cane back in the teacher's hand to Instill discipline.
Is it through the fear of caning that students will learn discipline? Can the cane create asense of respect for the teacher and the school authority? Caning can be a powerful deterrent to misbehavior. Contrary to popular belief, caning does not scar a child or youngster psychologically unless the punishment meted out Is unjust or too severe. However, would teachers who are confronted by an onslaught of disobedience, rudeness and disrespect still be able to act rationally?
The number of casesin which teachers misused their power have caught much attention. These are teachers who resort to caning as a way to control students. No improvement in the student's behavior results in increased and more severe punishment until the punishment can rightfully be termed child abuse.
Caning in other words has become a means to release the teachers' frustration and anger. This is an abuse of power. Teachers cannot expect to be respected by their students just because they have been given the power to cane. Respect is not gained through the power of the cane, but by a mutual understanding through a close student-teacher relationship. If a teacher carries out this responsibility well and fairly, and is able to show love and concern, he will be admired and respected.
When such a teacher canes a student, the student will realize thatis is because the teacher cares. Not only will he regret his misbehavior, but he will respect the teacher. The role of parents in training their children to be courteous and to respect adults, must not be overlooked. How many parents these days respect their children's teachers?
On top of that, many parents have become over protective. Under such circumstances, how then do we expect students to respect their teachers? There is no doubt that caning is useful in changing behavior if it is properly implemented. However, it should not be seen as panacea for disrespect for teachers and indiscipline in schools. Misbehavior of students is not solely caused by the fact that teachers are banned from using the cane. Therefore empowering teachers to cane naughty children will not solve the problems.
Parents, teachers and those in authority should look at the root the problems and work from there. Close friendships are hard to come by these days. In an ever-changing world with people striving to achieve their interpretation of preordained success, it is hard to know who your true friends are.
Fortunately, I found my best pal early at the tender age of seven. Samantha and I got acquainted as both of us were in the same class and sat next to each other. Samantha was a happy-go-lucky girl who always managed to breathe fresh air into the sometimes arid classroom.
She always knew what to say and would voice them at the best possible moments. Both pupils and teachers alike enjoyed her company and liveliness. There was hardly ever a dull moment when she was around with her funny quips and expressions.
Samantha was born with a silver spoon. Her father was a businessman and her mother owned and ran a boutique. Both her parents were very caring towards her as she, just like I, was the only child of the family. Samantha came to school each day with a perpetual smile. She was a very nice person to be around with. She and I used to go everywhere together and both of us were rarely seen apart. We used to talk about so many things as we walked, thoroughly enjoying our time together. One day, I went to school and forgot to ask my parents for lunch money.
At first, I was not hungry and thought I could bear going without a meal but soon, my stomach began to growl. Without asking, Samantha generously paid for my meal and drinks during recess. The incident revealed to me how lucky I was to have such a caring and compassionate friend.
As time went on, people started teasing us as we were spending more and more time together. We seemed to know what each other thought and we cared for each other deeply. Was I in love with her? I did not know then and we both knew we were too young for all that emotional roller coaster. Currently, Samantha and I are studying at different schools. It was hard to be apart at first, but technology in the form of instant messaging and e-mails have helped to bridge the gap in our friendship.
I sincerely wish our friendship will never end as it would be equivalent to waking up from a beautiful dream. The television TV is part and parcel of many households. It is a favourite past-time of many people, cutting across the culture, creed, gender and age. The National Geographic is a well-known documentary programme, focusing mainly on the ever-changing world, on Mother Earth and on nature and peoples and creatures that colour it with.
Personally, I am often awed and amazed with them. I like this programme because it is very educational. I have trekked up the highest peak and conquered Mt. I have dived down the deepest trenches. I have walked through the wilderness and be amongst the wild beasts, big and small. Thus, this programme has helped to expand my horizon and improve my knowledge and experience.
I also enjoy watching the National Geographic because it is entertaining, interesting and stimulating. I never imagined that such an educational programme can be very enjoyable. I get a chance to enjoy the kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and colours of the world and its different peoples, all in the comfort of my own home. In addition to that, this programme is of very high quality and it is produced by a team of experts, all are authorities in their own field of interest.
The photographic footage is extremely breath-taking and inspiring. Besides, the narration is very accurate, informative, vivid and descriptive. Thus, I have never felt restless, distracted or bored watching this programme. I have watched it since I was a seven-year-old innocent child. Now, I am more sensitive and aware of the world and Mother Earth. I learn to be more appreciative of Mother Earth and its beauty and wonders.
I am more concern about the preservation and conservation of the world not only now but also for posterity. In short, the National Geographic has converted me into a more responsible citizen of the world and a caretaker of Mother Earth. It is a touching and heart-warming TV programme and I will not hesitate to recommend it to others so that they too have a chance to savour amazing moments and appreciate and care for the one and only world we live in.
Good manners are important to live happily among people. Without good manners we are only slightly better than animals. The modern society consists of more people than it did in the past. These people are of various cultural, racial, religious and professional backgrounds. It therefore requires great powers of endurance and abilities of mixing with people. Good manners enable one to tolerate the disagreeable attitudes of others to a great extent. They also help to promote friendship among the people around.
If one has good manners, that person is respected by those who associate with him or her. Having good manners, however, does not mean that being polite, understanding, and sympathetic when not only outside but also inside his or her home. There are many people who are very kind and polite to people outside their homes, but within their own homes they are worse than the devil himself. Such people do not really have good manners. Having good manners means being good to others. Our speech and habits as well as our behavior should not hurt the feelings of others or cause them any inconvenience.
We should not also talk ill about others or boast about our achievements or personal possessions. We must not laugh at the weaknesses and failures of others. Further, if we are angry we must try to use words in such a way that others are not offended. If we have all these qualities, we will have more friends and well-wishers.
We will also have less trouble from others, and those who associate with us will also learn how to behave well. In this way, our good manners will help to spread better understanding and good-will among others. Thus, we can live a happier life. It is for all these reasons that we should have good manners. One of the most interesting places in Malaysia is the night market.
You may visit and experience the night market yourselves. Both locals and foreigners agree that the night market is the most common feature in the local society. The night market begins when the vendors arrive in the late afternoon. More and more goods laden vans arrive to begin a brisk day of business.
Most of the vendors busily set out to set up their stalls respectively in order to get ready for a brisk day of business. The sun gradually sets and the night market picks up momentum. More cars and vans are arriving. By now, the stalls are neatly and strategically arranged to entice their customers. There is an assortment of goods sold ranging from food, toys and clothes, to name a few. A variety of goods is sold at low prices. Large rainbow-coloured parasols are used to shade the people from rain and shine.
A concoction of blaring music can be heard in the night market background amidst the constant shouting. It is an amazing kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Still more people arrive, they come from all walks of life, mingling freely and harmoniously.
Crowds are walking up and down in an endless stream. Some of them are stopping by the stalls and haggling before making purchases. Little children tag along, amused and excited. Sprinklings of tourists join in to experience the lifestyle of typical Malaysian folks. When night falls, lighted lamps brighten up the place, they add gaiety to this atmosphere, and it is like a funfair. The night wears on and the traffic of people recedes.
Vendors get a chance to rest their weary legs besides bantering with each other. By The vendors pack up and close the van doors. One by one, they leave, leaving behind pieces of papers, plastic bags and discarded boxes. It us an eyesore! Finally, the night market disappears. The place becomes quite and still once more. Road accidents are reported in newspaper and on television every day.
There are more frequently caused by reckless drivers rather than faulty vehicles. Last Saturday, while I was travelling from Ipoh, I witnessed a serious accident. The scene of the accidents was vivid in my mind. A motorcyclist was following behind was taxi very closely. He was so impatient that he was trying to overtake my taxi even near a sharp bend. At that critical moment, there was an oncoming car.
The taxi driver swerved to the roadside and I got a terrible jolt. It was too late for the motorcyclist to avoid the car. His motorcycle ran against the bumper of the car and smashed its windscreen. The motorcyclist somersaulted over the car and was found lying in a pool of blood. It was a scene to chill the flesh! The car driver, who was cut by the flying glass, was in a state of shock.
All that happened in split second and fear overwhelmed us. The taxi driver stopped his taxi and I quickly ran to the nearest to the nearest telephone booth to inform the police and the hospital. From a distance I could see some people trying to help the injured motorcyclist and the car driver. Meanwhile the taxi driver tried to control and directs the traffic. Soon the police arrived and they promptly took some measurements and evidence. After that they moved the damaged car and the motorcycle to the roadside to ease the traffic congestion.
They also took down the evidence provided by witnesses and onlookers. Some sweepers were clearing the debris and the blood stains on the road. When the taxi finally continued the journey, I silently thanked God for my narrow escape. I learned a good lesson that impatience and recklessness would bring harm and danger.
I was happy to see that Malaysians are public-spirited and they render help to others readily. I believe good road manners and roads safety campaigns can help to reduce the number of road accidents which cause injuries, loss and lives and properties. I crept slowly down the stairs and tried to walk casually into the kitchen.
As I was walking towards the back door, mum asked without looking up from her "dish-washing", "Where are you going? My plan had worked out fine so far. I scaled the fence and jumped onto the muddy field next to my house and started running towards the bus-stop at top speed.
After half-an-hour, I was at the beach scanning the crowd for my friends, Jimmy and Bobby. After a while, I spotted them near a coconut tree. I ran towards them and got into my swimming trunk. For about an hour, we played volleyball happily. Suddenly, Bobby hit the ball too hard and the ball fell into the sea. Just as Bobby was going to pick up the ball, the tide came in and carried the ball further and further away from the shore. I wanted to show off my swimming skills so I decided to get the ball for them.
I dived into the water and started swimming at a steady pace. After swimming for about ten minutes, I became tired but when I saw that the ball was only a few feet away from me, I put in an extra burst of speed.
However, just as I was going to grab the ball, a very strong current swept the ball further away from me. At that moment, a string of weed tangled up with my feet and I could not swim properly. I struggled to keep afloat but it was no use. Finally, after struggling for a minute or two, I had no more energy and got pulled underwater.
I tugged at the weed which finally broke. I swam back to the surface, gasping for breath. I saw two young men in canoes, racing each other. I was exhausted but I shouted to the men for help. The two men, instead of helping me, ignored me and raced on. By the time, a lifeguard who was holding a life buoy reached me, I had already fainted. When I woke up, I was in an empty room lying on a bed.
It was not until a doctor came into the room that I realised that I was in a hospital. After a few minutes, my parents with half angry and half worried faces walked in. My parents scolded me for sneaking out of the house but were also glad that I was not seriously injured. I will never forget that terrifying experience. Neither will I ever want to show off again. The sun was beating mercilessly on my back and I could feel my sweat trickling down my spine. I have often wished that my mother would allow me to ride a motorcycle to school.
She says that I am not ready but we both know that she is terrified that a car would knock me down. When I reached the bus station, it was nearly empty except for a handful of boys. I could feel the tension on my shoulders as the straps of my school bag ate into my shoulder. An elderly woman came and asked me where I was going.
She started a conversation but gave up after my monosyllable answers. Suddenly, someone shouted and I saw a bus swerved into the station. A very good morning to our respected and honourable principal, teachers and my fellow friends. Time and energy may have been sacrificed by the teachers to bring up and give the best outcomes to the pupils. A very motherly look have been used by them to look after us like their own children.
In preparation for our examinations, they also have imparted and convey on the students a great deal of knowledge and skills. Teachers are also a good counsellors which means they are good listeners and the one who will advise and correct us if we do wronged. Many students have turned over a new leaf and go down the right path. Today, we have lined up a few programmes and activities, as an appreciation for our beloved and dedicated teachers.
First and foremost, teachers are invited to attend a concert. In the concert there will be many performances. A chorus and magic show also would be there.

The group of boys were jostling each other to get into the bus. The black fumes made me nauseous. All of a sudden, people started appearing from all directions to board their bus. In no time, the passengers were packed like sardines in the bus. It started to move, leaving some unfortunate passengers behind. I waved at Mohan when I noticed him dangling on the steps of the bus. The bus swerved out of the station again. It left another trail of black smoke. The iced sugar cane juice soothed my parched throat as I sipped slowly, all the while keeping an eye on the bus.
Then I saw the bus heading towards the station. I paid for my drinks. Once more, the crowd began to swell near the bus. I noticed that the elderly woman was being shoved around by the boys. She started hitting them with her umbrella. Then, I saw Raja, my classmate at the back of the bus. I hurled my bag through the window and he caught it. By the time I got into the bus, it had already started moving. I got into my seat and told myself that I must really try to convince my mother about the motorcycle again.
You recently went an expedition with your classmates to Langkawi. You have been asked to write a letterto your cousin about your visit to Langkawi Island. Rosni Alias No. Dear Zarina, How's life? I hope you are in the best of health. How's my beloved Uncle Johari?
I miss him too. The reason I write this letter is to tell you about my expedition to Langkawi. Guess what? We just came back from Langkawi. I went there with 25 of my classmates and my class teacher. Mr, Zaid had kindlly accompanied us for the 3 day-trip.
You should have joined us. It was such an awesome experience! Well, on the first day, we arrived at Langkawi in morning after a short flight. We were taught the history of the place and some fossils of fish could also be sighted. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand geogical aspect of the island at the Geopark. After visiting Geopark, we were taken to Pulau Dayang Bunting which about an hour boat ride. I forgot to mention that the boat ride itself was so exciting and adventurous.
Upon arrival at the island, we were greeted by monkeys and soon, we saw a breathtakinng lake, with its gree clear water. Not forgetting the fish spa where thousands of catfish nibble at your feet when you lower feet into the water. Again, this is a new experience for me.
Other than that, we could really enjoy the beautiful scenery of the island. The next day, we went to Underwater World where we saw the penguin, giant fishes, colourful onemones and all sorts of marine life there. I'm sure, it's heaven for fish lovers. One advantage of this trip is I could learn about themarine life. It was a good experience since I managed to see the historic sites and understand Mahsuri legend better.
Other than that, I also learn about the importance of being true to our words and do not spread false gossips since these can lead to horrible consequences. I also managed to make friends with some other tourists visiting the site. Okay, I guess I have to have to pen off now. Hope to see you in the next letter. Please convey my love and regards to my uncle and aunti.
Take care! Love, Rosni. I could hardly wait for the school bell to ring as it was the last day of the term. And although I had just finished my last exam, I couldn't help but daydream about the fun I would have for the next few months - getting up late, watching movies with my friends, spending time with my relatives in Pakistan and generally doing things I enjoy doing but don't find the time to. When the bell finally rang, we rushed out of our classrooms as if released from prison.
Chattering and yelling to be heard, we all gathered in a corner of the schoolyard to discuss our plans for the coming weeks. Everyone had something to say. To begin with, we decided to have a water fight right there and then and did. We got soaked through and through and got caught by one the school nuns. We were lucky to escape with a scolding. My friends decided they were coming to my place and I had to hurriedly phone and warn my unsuspecting mother.
Luckily mom made dozens of hot dogs and French fries and we had a fun lunch in my room. After lunch we decided to go to the City Centre to watch the third Harry Potter film. We got there an hour too soon but had fun all the same checking out the cosmetics shops, video games outlets and other shops that interested us.
Finally, we bought large bags of popcorn, gigantic paper glasses of cokes and trouped into the cinema hall. The movie was terrific as expected and when it got over I had to overcome the urge to see it again. The day was not over for us, however, as we still had a friend's birthday party to attend. The only problem was that we had almost run out of money so we pooled together what we had and bought a gift that all thought was just perfect.
Luckily, the birthday girl thought so too, so that was a relief. The party turned out to be full of fun and games and we really enjoyed it no end. When we finally headed our different ways, it was with no regrets. It had been an eventful day and a full one Everyone have their own future plan for their own good.
To see myself from 20 years from nowwould be a great gift, but it is indeed impossible. We got no time machine to make it happen, so we just can plan, predict and pray. I have many dreams for myself. This time my occupation is in stable, and my personal economy flows out smoothly.
I am a richman right now, able to buy anything of my desires easily. That would be a perfect thing to see myown future self. Also, I want to see myself to be a great father of my children. I am able to teach and trainthem well. Make sure they would never forget their customs, and enrich them with many moralvalues.
This can be a challenge, to teach my children in these wild social problems. But, I will do whatit takes to make sure my bloods are worth to be known as human. Furthermore, in the future I really hope I can get myself a car different from the locals here. There must be new models to come out at the future. This is the only chance for me, I am going to be old, so still with the localcars would be a shame to me, since it shows me that I made no improvements.
Last but not least, I want to build myself a nice home for myself and my beloved family. Thishome will hold many of our great and sweet memories together. I will decorate it with superb floralandscape for my future wife and a nice playground for my children to play with. There are more things I want to achieve in the next 20 years, these are nothing but someexamples of many other.
Hopefully I can do it well to achieve these dreams, so my desire will befulfilled while I am still alive. Everyone has been embarrassed at one time or another. It is that moment in time when you wish the earth would open up and swallow you. The anxiety and discomfort felt during that time which may only last a few seconds feels like time has stood still.
I remember so well when I had my most embarrassing moment. I was in Form 4 and it was during the school recess. The minute the bell rang for recess, I rushed to the toilet because I had been controlling my urges since class started. The prolonged control and an upset stomach made worse by two glasses of cold milk in the morning made me grunt and groan in what I thought in what I thought was the privacy of the cubicle.
I thought I heard giggling outside and wondered why the giggles sounded unusually near. Instead they looked down at me, then only they turned quickly away. Horror of horrors, I had forgotten to zip up! No beetroot could have matched the colour of my face at this point in time! They news of my predicament spread like wild fire throughout school.
I was truly the talk of the town. I felt like I could either walk around feeling perpetually self-conscious and embarrassed or I could turn the situation round, perhaps even to my advantage.
