An Interesting Night


       It was a peaceful night. Everybody was sleeping soundly, except me. I could not sleep so I went to the kitchen for a drink.

       Suddenly, I heard a loud “clang” coming from my neighbor’s house. I immediately went outside to take a look. I saw someone climbing through my neighbor’s fence with a bat.

       I quickly went back and called my parents for help. After they woke up, I explained to them what happened. They quickly informed the police.

       Fortunately, the police station was near to our neighborhood. After three minutes, the policemen came. Suddenly, we heard a loud scream. The burglar ran out of the house. The policemen chased after the burglar and managed to catch him. After that, the policemen hand-cuffed the burglar and sent him to the police station.

       After that, our neighbor thanked my parents and the policemen for catching the burglar.

My Best Friend

       Probably my best friend is one of my schoolmates. My best friend is called Seow Shu Li. We have known each other since Year 2.

       She has short black hair, a small nose and a small pointed chin. She is not very tall but also not short either. She is very beautiful. She does not like to dress up but she likes to wear a necklace during tuition .

       We are interested in the same hobbies. We both enjoy music, singing and dancing. We like going to the cinema. We both like reading too. Sometimes we will go to the library to revise our homework or borrow books. Whatever we are doing it’s always fun to be with her.

       I cannot imagine going to school or tuition and not having her there. Since she is better in Mathematics and Science and I am better in Chinese and other languages, we can always help each other if we face difficulty in our homework. We are luckly that we complement each other so well and that we get along so well. I hope that our friendship will continue and be just as strong after we have completed our primary education. I hope that we could study in the same secondary school.


A Picnic

Last weekend, my family and I went to Pulau Pinang Summer Beach for a picnic. We bring a lot of food, drink and toys before departing.

We reached the beach after a few hours. My brother and I have found a suitable and comfortable place. I took out my ball and invited my brother to play with me. Our parents were preparing food while my brother and I played with the ball.

After some time, we felt tired and hungry. We ate the food that was prepared by our parents. It was delicious and we finished it very fast. Then, we decided to swim in the sea. My father and mother were chatting under the tree.

In the evening, we kept all the food and toys and prepared to go home. It was a nice day for me.

A Wonderful Trip to Singapore

During the holidays, my family and I went to Singapore. We travelled from Penang to Singapore at 10.45 p.m. by plane. We waited for an hour as the flight was delayed for 45 minutes.

We reached Singapore’s Changi Airport at 11.40 p.m. Then, we had supper at ‘Burger King’ at the airport. After that, we took a taxi to my uncle’s HDB flat. My uncle’s family was waiting for us.

The next day, after breakfast, my family and I went to the Science Center. There are exhibition rooms displaying all kinds of things, like human DNA, sound, prehistoric creatures. There is also a water park there; my sister and I played happily there. We also went to a garden and we learned many things about plants.

On the third day in Singapore, we went to Jurong Bird Park. There are many exiting bird performances. There are also 8000 birds from more than 600 species at the park. At night, we went to Marina Bay by MRT. I boarded the world’s larger giant observation wheel, that is the Singapore Flyer. The night scenery in Singapore is amazing when you see it from 165m above the city.

We also went to Sentosa Island. However, we were disappointed because the tickets to Universal Studios had been sold out. However, we enjoyed ourselves at the Underwater World where I saw dolphins performing for the first time in my life.

We went there for two weeks. We also bought a lot of chocolates, sweets and some souvenirs back to Penang. We could not bear to leave Singapore. This is my best holiday ever. I wish I could visit Singapore again next year.

An Unlucky Day


       Yesterday, my parents had just bought me a new computer . I was elated because I could play my favorite computer games .always stayed up late at night playing computer games.

       One morning , I woke up late because I played computer games until late at night. I quickly brushed my teeth and put on my uniform. I walked as fast as I could to the bus-stop but I was late for the bus. It started to rain. I did not bring along my umbrella. I had to run all the way to school. I even forgot my glasses. I kept on bumping onto people.

      When I reached school, I was drenched. The school gate was locked. I had to call for the guard. I was already late for my first lesson of the day. When I entered to my classroom, everybody was laughing me. I explained to my teacher. He punished and scolded me because he could not accept my reason.

       It was an unlucky day. I promised not to stay up late at night again. I had learnt a lesson.

Should Newspapers Be


      With the development of our society,changes occur everyday. Every morning we get up only to find that science and technology have simultaneously bumped into our room and soon spread to the whole world. Digital camera has replaced camera;MP3 in place of Discman and Walkman; Intelligence administrating society instead of man-administrating community.Surely the media field has also been influenced. The traditional way of printing news through newspapers has now been confronted with the never-met challenge. We begin to wonder, Should the news paper be replaced?

Some people hold that the newspaper is bound to be media of the past. To start with, time plays the most important role.As is shown, what has been in the newspaper is outdated. That is to say, if we want to approach the latest news, newspaper is simply not a good way. For example, on Sept. 11, the moment the event took place, Internet and TV followed right away.That's just what technology has brought us. To follow is its limitation in reporting news. No newspaper can present all aspects of our life, for each serves a different goal. That means we have to consult different newspapers to meet our different needs.Compared with other ways of media, computer, for instance,through which we can get everything we want to know with only a little tapping of our fingers, is superior.

Quite on the contrary, others hold the opinion that even with the development of science and technology, newspaper, as symbol of the traditional media, won't disappear, for some of its advantages can't be replaced. First of all, it's convenient to carry about wherever you are. Newspapers can be easily packed in your suitcase, and can be bought everywhere.

How to imagine carrying a computer, only for several pieces of news? Second,newspapers offer a free choice for its readers.

Having a news paper, you can select what you do or do not want to read while TV or radio or even computer will probably confine your eyes to those that you regard as rubbish. Last, newspapers offer comments. Generally speaking, newspapers, especially formal ones,include formal remarks on the important events that provide you with a better understanding.

Concerning those two opposed opinions, I support the latter. Though the highly developed science and technology influence almost every corner of the world and quicken the pace of globalization which makes the idea of "sharing the source" come true, newspaper, as the traditional way of media, cannot be abolished, not only because of its irreplaceable advantages but its collectability and its inner charm of witnessing the good old days. The form changes, but the spirit never.

It was a fun day!

       Last weekend, Aunt Jennifer and my two cousins, Jeffrey and Ken came to my house for a dinner.

Most of time, Jeffrey, Ken and I will play in the garden. That afternoon, after a short rain, the three of us saw a few large and small snails crawling near some herbs plants in the garden. Have you ever taken a close look at a snail? I saw that those snails have a hard brown shell, with two thin antennae on their heads. Snails are not fast. They move on a foot. I could see slivery slime trails where snails have passed on the ground. How beautiful, I thought!

       However, my mother disliked garden snails. I remembered there was a time where there came a large group of snails eating up all my mother’s flowers and herbs plants. Since then, she would catch and pull out any snails that she could find in the garden and throw them away!

       Though my mother disliked garden snails, we found them interesting. We took turns using a branch to tap lightly onto the snail’s head. It felt threatened and retreated into its shell. It was fun! Jeffrey then suggested playing snail pole climbing competition. Each of us cheered for our snails to win.

       Soon, Jeffrey’s snails turned backwards, Ken’s snail just stopped on the pole. My snail crawled slowly. I shouted excitedly: “my snail king won! I won!” Laughters was around the garden, we continued our competition again…

       In the late evening, Aunt Jennifer and my cousins bid farewell to us after having a delicious dinner. It was indeed a happy and relaxing day! I am looking forward to the next weekend to come.

An Unforgetful Experience


       I hate performing on the stage, actually who knows that one day my English teacher told us that our class was chosen to participate in the Choral Speaking Competition. I was just like “You’ve got to be kidding me”. I mean, I have never performed the stage before.

       The first time when we went on the stage to practice Choral Speaking, I was so nervous. My legs were trembling badly. The benches were also shaking like they were going to fall. The truth is, I was really, really nervous. There were butterflies in my stomach.

      The night before the day of the Choral Speaking Competition, I just couldn’t sleep as I was so uneasy. The next day, I tried to calm myself down before we went on the stage. Everyone had done their best when performing on the stage.

      When the judges were going to announce the results, e were very anxious. We thought that we couldn’t get a prize. However, things weren’t going as bad as we thought. The judges announced that our school has won the second place. I just couldn’t believe my ears, so I pinched myself, but the pain told me that this was real. We did win the second place! Some of my classmates were screaming happily as if they were crazy. This was an unforgetful experience for me and I’ll never forget it.

It is importance for the parents to instill the habits of doing housework in the children.

Every member of the family is responsible to keep the house clean. It’s more comfortable to live in a neat and clean house. Parents are busy at work to earn a living. They are exhausted after work. Therefore, children should help their parents and share the burden of doing the housework.

The Adventure of Wilhelm


       People have always been lured by the mysteries of deep, shadowy forests, or felled trees in clearings dappled by the sun. There was a place called Silver forest. Here the mysterious gloom thickened and boulders covered with moss loomed up the path. Only an occasional breath of air or the splash of frogs disturbed its somber calm. In this very forest, not only did shy animals hid in the green half-light, but also terrifying beasts living in there. A thousand gangers threatened any man who boldly entered the forest. And only very few ever succeeded to escape from the forest. “Once in, never came out of there,” said the folks who lived nearby the forest.

There was a poor carpenter who had an only son, name Wilhelm. The carpenter onlt cut wood at the outer part of the forest. He never went into the forest. Although the carpenter was poor, he was as wise as an owl. The carpenter had taught Wilhelm to be wise and never let him go near the Silver forest.

One day, the carpenter fell sick. Wilhelm decided to help his father to cut wood. The sick father let Wilhelm help him, but he warned Wilhelm, “Son, you can never go into the dark part of the forest, for there are dark and powerful creatures in the forest, like the fire breathing Jabberwocky. Be careful my son!”

Wilhelm noted and promised his father not to do anything dangerous. After that,  Wilhelm took his father’s axe and went out to cut wood.

After a little while, Wilhelm heard sounds from the forest. He saw birds flying away from the forest and small animals hiding themselves. Wilhelm curiously went deeper into the forest to see what was happening. Just then, a horrifying dragon flew out and stood right in front of Wilhelm. “I’ve not eaten for one whole month, it is about time for me to have a feast,” said the Jabberwocky with an evil grin. Wilhelm calmed himself and answered, “Oh really, Mr. Jabberwocky? Why, there’s a whole bunch of other dragons that look just like you, and they want to eat me too. What a coincidence!” The Jabberwocky was furious and commanded Wilhelm to take him to the dragon’s lair. Clever Wilhelm led him into the Cave of darkness, where nothing can be seen. The foolish Jabberwocky was tricked by Wilhelm. The Jabberwocky shouted furious, “How dare you! You dared to snatch my food, and even copied my look! I will not let this nonsense continue!” The Jabberwocky was shocked to hear many more voices from the cave echoing his words. The jabberwocky fought in the dark for he could not see anything. Wilhelm slipped out of the cave and ran back home as fast as he could.

When Wilhelm reached home, he told the whole story to his father. The carpenter said to Wilhelm, “The greatest treasure n the world , is to have you as a son.” Both father and son hugged each other happily. It was the best day for Wilhelm and his faher.
