A small quarrel

A small quarrel

People these days have become quite quarrelsome. They have little tolerance and small incidents which should be accepted with a smile can make them lose their tempers. Quarrelling have become more and frequent. I have personally witnessed a quarrel.

My friends and I were at the park. There was also a small field for the children. I saw two boys quarrelling over a ball. I tried to stop them; to my surprise, I saw two ladies approaching. I thought they were going to thank me for having stopped the boys from quarrelings. Instead of thanking me and take their kids home, they started quarrelling themselves. They started screaming at each other.

The passers-by were astounded and soon gathered around, none tried to stop them. Instead some added fuel to the fire by their comments. Soon they seemed to be exhausted by their verbal warfare and were about to exchange blows when suddenly two policemen appeared.

The policemen refused to listen and in their authoritative manner, silenced the both of them. The police questioned them about the fight. To everyone’s surprise, they pointed to me as the witness and alleged that one of the boys had taken the other’s ball. The police looked at me for an answer. I tried to explain that I was in no way concerned. Suddenly one of the policemen pointed at the two boys who were now playing happily and not paying much attention to what was going nearby. The two women were ashamed of themselves and left immediately.

A day I spent in strange surroundings

A day I spent in strange surroundings

I have a cousin, Brian, who is a writer for a newspaper in Kuala Lumpur. Last year when I visited him, he told me that he had an assignment to write about life in a remote village in the national forest reserve in Pahang. He challenged me, a city boy, to accompany him and experience a day in totally unfamiliar surroundings.

We drove to a small town where we boarded a boat for the ride down the river. The boat was a long one with just a few seats. Most of the passengers sat on the floor.

The journey was a thrilling adventure. The boat had to pass through a number of rapids, and at a certain points the boatman used a long pole to steer it. Brian and I were obviously excited but the other passengers took it in a casual, even bored way. To them, it was a usual occurrence. “They have to take this journey every time they need to go to town. Look at you, you have the MRT and you complain if the journey is longer than 40 minutes!,” Brian teased me.

After three hours in the boat, we reached our destination. After getting off at the pier, the first building that we saw was the village shop. Actually, it was a small shop crammed with canned and dry food. Brian chatted with the owner and we found out that the shop was also the only place in the village where people buy their stamps and newspapers. However, the postal service and the newspaper delivery came only once a week.

He then showed us the direction to the headman’s house. The headman’s name was Tok Kassim. When we found his house, he invited us in and told us stories about himself and his village. Then he took us for a tour around the village. Since bicycle was the only form of transport, people walked from place to place.

The village was very peaceful and green. The river was the focal place of the villagers. We saw people fishing in the river and women washing their clothes there. But what struck me most was the way the children enjoyed it. They swam in it, and they rode in rafts which they put together from bamboo poles.

Tok Kassim recounted the time when his father and the other villagers rebelled against British rule. The river was often the battlefront between the two opponents. He talked about the river as though it was an old friend. He explained how it had seen them through the worst of times like the starvation they experienced during the Japanese occupation of Malaya, and how the river has helped them throughout their lives.

That night we had a wonderful dinner at Tok Kassim’s house. Many of the villagers came and brought some food. A neighbor even brought fresh money still attached to pieces of honeycomb. It was one of the most natural food I have ever tasted.

The next morning, we left on the boat. During the journey, I thought about how strange the life of this village and the surroundings seemed to me and my friends in Singapore. Despite the simplicity of their lives, they are strong people who could weather bad times.

But most of all, while we talk about “green” living, these people are quietly practicing it.

An unlucky day

An unlucky day

I woke up with a pain in the back of my neck. I could hardly turn my head. I strained to look at the clock on the table. It showed six fifty. My goodness, I must have overslept. It looked like I would be late for school.

Quickly I ran to the bathroom only to find it occupied. I waited impatiently for another five minutes before my sister appeared. I dashed into the bathroom to have a shower. My goodness, the water was freezing cold. Those who had their shower before me had used up all the hot water. So I had no choice but to have a really quick cold shower.

After washing up I felt a bit better. I returned to my room to dress up for school. It seemed to take such a long time to dress up when I had to hurry. Finally I managed to and hurried downstairs to the kitchen to grab something to eat.

There was nothing but cold coffee and bread crusts left. My greedy brothers and sisters had eaten everything. My mother told me it served me right for getting up late. I sighed and got out of the house. I mounted my bicycle and moved two meters before I realized that I had forgotten my school bag. I dismounted and hurried upstairs to get it. I moved another two meters after remounting the bicycle before I realized I had a flat tyre.

It was so infuriating I wanted to scream. My neck hurt, I took a cold shower, had no breakfast and now the tyre had to be flat. But I calmed myself, got down and pushed the bicycle to a shop half a kilometer away.

As though expecting things to turn out wrong, I was not surprised to find the shop closed. I was late for school but was too early for the shop to open. So I left the bicycle in front of the shop. They would know that it was my bicycle.

I walked to the bus stand and waited. The bus came at eight. I was really late for school.

When I finally arrived at school, classes were in full session. In fact the first period was over. The headmaster caught me coming late and gave me a terrific scolding, but I was in no mood to argue. I just wanted to get to class.

I entered my class when the mathematics teacher was there. I received another scolding for being late. Five minutes later I received yet another for forgetting to bring my instrument box. Of all days, we were having geometry and I had no instruments. So I spent the period watching the others to do their sums.

The rest of the day in school was one big mess. I could not concentrate. I sort of went through the lessons half-aware of them. When the bell finally rang to signal the end of the day I was so glad to go home.

However that was not the end yet.

After lunch, I wanted to take a nap, but I could not get to sleep because of the pain in my neck. So I tossed and turned which made the pain worse. Finally I gave up and went into the garden to relax.

Evening came and I did not even bother to go and play games. I just wanted to have dinner and go to bed.

After what seemed to be a long wait my sister told me dinner was ready, I had a quick dinner as I did not have an appetite. After dinner I rested for a while, had a shower and then went to bed. It was not even nine but I was so glad to get into bed and let sleep embrace me. It had been a hard day when nothing went right.

A day when everything went wrong

A day when everything went wrong

It was a bright and sunny day. Little did I expect it to be an unlucky one for me.

I went to school early because I was on class duty. I stepped into the classroom and was surprised to find it spick and span. I was pleased that I did not have to clean the classroom and went off cheerfully for the flag-rising ceremony. When I returned to my classroom later on, my teacher scolded me for not cleaning the classroom. It was then that I realized I had gone into the wrong classroom earlier on. My teacher put me on duty again the next day as punishment.

Just then, the school dental nurse walked into the classroom. To my dismay, I was called up for a dental check-up.

The dentist found a badly decayed tooth and pulled it out mercilessly. I was close to tears. The dentist advised me to take porridge during recess. However, I ended up scalding my tongue because I ate the hot porridge in a hurry.

After school, I missed the bus and reached home later than usual. In the kitchen, I found a note from my mother saying that she had brought my brother to a funfair. They had left without me after much waiting. What hard luck! I would not want to live through another such day!

The happiest day in my life

The happiest day in my life

It was Prize-presentation Day. I was chosen to be the model student of the year on the recommendation of my teachers and classmates. I was happy that they thought so well of me.

When I went up the stage to collect the prestigious medal and cash award, I was filled with pride and joy. All my teachers and friends congratulated me warmly. My parents beamed widely. They were very proud of me.

After the prize-giving ceremony, my parents brought me to a ‘Toys-R-Us’ shop. There, they bought me a remote-controlled model aircraft as a reward for being such a good student. I was overjoyed because I had wanted the model for a long time.

In extremely good moods, we proceeded to MacDonalds for dinner. We had Big macs, French fries, milk-shakes and my favorire chicken Mcnuggets.

That night, I played with my model aircraft before going to bed. For once, my puppy was allowed to sleep with me since it was such a special day. Even the night was filled with sweet dreams. It was probably the happiest day in my life.

The day I was late for school

The day I was late for school

It was well past midnight but I was still up watching the World Cup Soccer Finals. My mother was away on a tour, so I was free to stay up as late as I liked.

The next morning, even the two alarm clocks ringing loudly did not wake me up! I finally woke up from a nightmare in which my favorite football team was defeated. It was already eight in the morning! I jumped out of bed and quickly washed my face. Then slipping into my school uniform, I ran out of the flat.

I ran to school as fast as my legs could carry me. In my haste, I tripped and fell, bruising my knees. Finally I reached school. Before I could catch my breath to greet my teacher, she asked me, “Who won the World Cup – Germany or Argentina?” The whole class roared with laughter. Quickly, I apologized for being late and added, “Germany won.”

I was not allowed to sit for the class test because I was too late. I felt ashamed of myself and resolved never to stay up so late again.

The day I was sick

The day I was sick

I was completely drenched in the heavy downpour. When I reached home, I sneezed continuously and shivered with cold. That night, I felt weak and feverish.

The next morning, I did not go to school. My mother brought me to the doctor. He said I had the flu and gave me an injection to speed up recovery. He also prescribed some big white tablets for me. I was advised to drink more water, take more fresh fruits and have plenty of rest.

When I reached home, I went straight to bed. I felt so weak that my mother had to carry my meals and medicine to my bed. For lunch, my mother made me a light soup to go with some bread. She also peeled an orange for me. After the simple but nutritious meal, I slept the whole afternoon away.

My best friend, Sufen, called me in the evening. She sounded concerned and asked me to get better soon. She also told me some of the funny things that happened in school that day to cheer me up.

That night, I felt much better. “Perhaps I can go back to school tomorrow,” I thought before falling asleep.

A week before examination

A week before examination

Sundays are generally a fixed routine determined by the TV programs. But the last Sunday before the examinations was completely different. Of all the subjects, English and Mathematics are the ones I fear most. I was determined not to waste the Sunday before the exam and to spend the day on revision.

I set the alarm clock at 4:30 a.m. so that I can get up early and start my revision. But the alarm did not ring and I got up very late. So I had to choose between English and Mathematics. I started on the Mathematics problems for I was not worried about English. I was stuck on my seventh problem. I was still trying to solve the problem when I heard commotion at the front hall. My uncle has come with his family. My room door burst open and my cousins came barging in. They sat in the side of the bed and they started asking questions. My mother asked me to take my cousins to the market. I went out in anger. It was almost lunchtime when I started again.

My cousins pestered me to take them around. I had no choice but to be obliged and completely wasted all my time until the evening. I had some spare time after dinner. I was still stuck with the seventh problem. In desperation, I threw away the book. The sound must have jolted everyone and my uncle came in, sensing my inability, he patiently explained the problem. I could not continue further due to shame and anger.

Thus the whole Sunday was totally wasted. Instead I could have watched television and played with my cousins, I have lost both.

Class duty

Class duty

Today, I went to school earlier than usual. When I stepped into the classroom, my two classmates, Jason and Xiaoqiang, were already there. The other classmates had not come in yet and this was the best time for us to do our class duty.

We divided our workload accordingly. I was put in charge of sweeping the floor. I took down the chairs and arranged the tables. Meanwhile, Jason and Xiaoqiang dusted the top of the cupboards with feather-dusters. They also used damp rags to wipe the windows and the blackboard. After we had completed our jobs, the classroom looked spick and span.

Besides the morning cleaning, the three of us also had to run errands for our teachers that day. We took turns to carry books for them. In between classes, we also made sure that the blackboard was clean before the next teacher came in.

At the end of the day, our form teacher praised us for doing a good job. We were very proud of ourselves. We felt that it was worth the effort to wake up a little earlier to do our part for the class.

Accident in the laboratory

Accident in the laboratory

After classes on Monday, we were passing near the chemistry laboratory when we saw a strange figure running out of the chemistry lab. The stranger was tall with stooping shoulders. His hair was below his dirty shirt collar. The left leg of his dark blue jeans was rolled up to his knees.

At first we thought that he was Mr. Tan, the laboratory assistant, but he was too shabbily dressed to be Mr. Tan. While we were deciding who he was, we suddenly heard an explosion in the lab. Without second thoughts, we rushed into the lab to investigate. We were greeted by thick black smoke when we opened the door of the lab. We covered our mouths and noses with our handkerchiefs and with much difficulty, found the source of the fire.

The three liter can of kerosene was undoubtedly the fire initiator. We took the little pails at the corner of the lab to put out the fire. While we were struggling with this little fire-fighting, we were rudely interrupted by a series of loud explosions behind us. We turned around and to our horror we saw flames near the front door and also the small fire exit by the left side of the lab.

We were trapped and the only way of escaping was through the narrow windows which were barred with thick wire. We realized the hopelessness of the situation as we were completely engulfed in thick fumes and smoke. The acid compartment of the cabinet exploded and also caught fire. The smell was unbearable.

In between desperate gasps of breath, we shouted for help. In a few minutes we heard the windows being broken. Then excited voices were heard outside. We could not see even our own hands which were held in front of your eyes, let alone the crowd which must have already gathered outside.

Our hearts beat vigorously as we waited patiently to be rescued. We controlled our breaths and tried not to inhale much of the possibly poisonous fumes. Then, before we realized it, we were pulled out of the lab, through the windows by fire-fighters.

Now I am feeling better, I can recall that my friends and I have seen the man, possibly the culprit, loitering in the canteen outside during the break. We really hope that the man can be traced and proper action be taken against him.

A freak accident

A freak accident

I sat on the back seat of the bus with a couple of friends. We were on our way to school. It was early morning and the cool air hitting against my face was very refreshing.

Slowly the old amber colored bus made its way towards the main road that led to our school. The driver stopped the bus at the junction as the lights were red. We waited for the lights to change.

Suddenly the bus lurched to one side. I literally saw school-children in front of me float up in the air for a split-second. The next moment we were all either on the floor of the bus or desperately clinging to our seats. I was one of the former.

What happened?

For a few second, there was pandemonium in the bus. I could hear screaming and yelling. I tried to stand up but I found it difficult. Then I realized that the bus was aslant at such an angle that we were almost stacked against the right side of the bus.

Then we heard the bus driver shouting at us to get out. We scrambled out through all available exits including the windows. School-children are pretty agile. So, soon all of us were out of the bus.

We stood on the road and gaped at the sight before us. The bus had fallen into a huge hole. There right in front of us was a huge hole of about 2 meters diameter and a meter deep.

The right front wheel of the bus was right smack in the hole while the rest of the bus hung precariously at the edge.

Miraculously, except for a few bruises, none of us was badly hurt. The driver was worst off. He lost a tooth when he hit his face against the steering wheel.

How did the bus fall into a hole while standing still? The only answer must be that the road underneath the bus must have given way.

Closer examination of the hole showed that it was actually part of an underground drain. The collapsed part must have been weakened through prolonged use and it was just our luck that it gave way when we were on top of it. What a freak accident it was!

Anyway, we waited patiently while a passerby called for a towtruck via his mobile telephone. After half an hour it arrived and soon the bus was standing on firm ground again.

We climbed in and in a while we arrived at our school. We were late, but we had a good reason to tell our teachers. As for the driver, he had to pay a visit to his dentist.

An air accident

An air accident

The air hostess announced that all passengers should fasten their seat belts and hold on firmly to their chairs. She tried her best to assure us that everything would be all right. However, her efforts at calming the panic-stricken passengers were in vain.

The passengers had themselves seen the sudden appearance of dark clouds and heard the sound of heavy rain pattering ferociously on the aircraft so much so that children and women were harshly thrown from side to side.

The aircraft was then zooming down almost perpendicular to the ground. Eerie, hysterical cries could be heard from almost every corner of the aircraft. The lights suddenly went off and the aircraft spinned rapidly. Then, there was a tremendous explosion that put a sudden end to the cries of woe. The aircraft had crashed in a deep valley between two block mountains.

I woke up near a tree and was rudely reminded of the tragic happening by the terrible sight of blood and badly disfigured, hardly recognizable bodies. There was not even the slightest sign of life. The wreckage extended over a large area, the sight of which made me feel sick. I was tortured by hunger, thirst and fear of death. I managed to carry myself up and walk laboriously with my sore feet. The walk seemed to be endless and I was then dizzy with exhaustion.

The sight of a small village on the hillslope made me rub my eyes in disbelieve. I saw a woman fetching water from the well and I quickened my steps towards her. Before I even reached her, I fell down unconscious. When I woke up, I found myself lying here, on this very bed.

Incident in a sleepless night

Incident in a sleepless night

It was a hot night and I could not sleep, I got up and looked out of the window. The sky was very beautiful to look at. There was half-moon in the west and many stars were burning bright in the firmament.

While being absorbed in this lovely night scene, I became aware of a moaning sound from the next flat. I listened for a while. I thought at first that somebody there was snoring or crying in his dream. But no, it was distinctly a moaning sound. It was soon followed by other sounds. They were of people talking loudly. I could not make out as to what they were talking.

The quarreling noise increased. Now and then, I could identify a voice that appeared to be begging. Very soon, I heard the noise of blows and a shrill cry of a woman. Still I hesitated to move out of my cozy bed to see what the matter was. The neighbor was only an acquaintance of mine and at that hour of the night I was reluctant to go and interfere.

While my thoughts were running along that strain, I heard a sudden crash as though something heavy had fallen. This was followed by a fearful shriek, and then silence followed. I feared something horrible had happened. So, I went to the neighbor’s door and knocked at it. It was opened by my neighbor, who appeared a picture of dismay and bewilderment. After some excuses I enquired of him what the matter was.

He took me in and showed me a scene. There lay his wife curled up on her bed. One or two chairs had been turned upside down. Things were in disarray. The neighbor showed me the chairs. After seating himself, he told me that his wife had been a hysterical patient and would now and then create scenes in the night. The voices had been theirs when he had tried to quieten her. She had pushed the chairs which had caused the crash. And after shrieking, she lay down in a swoon. It was a frequent occurrence. While I sought his excuse for disturbing him, he begged my pardon for having disturbed my peace at night. I bade him goodnight and returned to my room.

An unlucky incident i had witnessed

An unlucky incident

I am a healthy person and do not normally fall ill. My baby sister is often ill. My parents and grandparents are all deeply concerned about her health and take great care of her. She goes to bed early. We have to turn down the television and lower our voices so that she gets a good night’s sleep.

My uncle, my aunt and my two cousins came from Malaysia as our guests during the school holidays. We had planned to have a small party followed by a movie by my favorite actor, Sylvester Stallone. We were playing till 10 p.m. and my mother asked me to take my cousins to my bed room.

Next day when my mother woke me up, I did not feel like getting up. I had a slight headache. Mother felt my forehead and found that I was having a fever. How sad I was! All our plans were upset. I did not like the pitiable stares of others, in particular, from my cousins. My mother brought me milk and porridge. She asked my brother and my cousins to leave me alone. She asked my cousins not to play the hi-fi stereo as I needed complete rest.

It was indeed a boring time lying in bed. Little did I know that the day would be so long. Soon my temperature started to rise and I felt hot and restless. My head started to get heavy. It was really troublesome. The matters became worse when my brother and my cousins were preparing to go to the movie. The worst part was not being able to enjoy the feast my mother was preparing for the guests. I was ordered to live on a liquid diet and pills and tablets. In frustration I spent the whole day in bed.

Luckily, the temperature was back to normal. I promised myself that I shall not allow myself to fall ill again.

Topic label: an incident that taught me a lesson.

Lost in a strange place

Lost in a strange place

During my school holidays, I went to stay with my cousin’s family in Penang for a week. They lived in a hut in a kampong.

One fine morning, my cousin, Andy, and I went to fish in a stream near the outskirts of the kampong. Andy caught a lot of fishes. I was not as lucky and decided to move further upstream to try another fishing spot. I managed to catch many small fishes there. When I went back to look for Andy, he was nowhere to be found. Thinking that he might have moved downstream, I followed the stream to look for him.

After some time, I realized that I had lost my way. I began to panic when I could not even find a public telephone to make a call. At that moment, I saw a signpost with a Malay world “Polis”. “Perhaps it means ‘Police’,” I thought and ran quickly in that direction.

I was right. Ahead was a police-post, I told the policemen what had happened. They listened patiently to my description of my cousin’s kampong. Then one of the policemen brought me back to my cousin’s hut. How glad I was to find myself safe with my relatives again. It was certainly horrifying to have lost my way in a strange place.

A frightening experience

Talk about a frightening experience

It was almost midnight. I was going home on a bus. There was only one other passenger – a middle-aged man.

I leaned back on my seat and closed my eyes, enjoying the cool night breeze. Suddenly, I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and found the other passenger grinning at me. The man looked rosy in the cheeks and reeked of liquor. He was drunk.

Before I knew it, he started running his fingers through my hair. I was terrified. The next moment, he sat himself beside me. The bus-driver seemed too preoccupied with driving to notice what was happening.

The man looked angry suddenly and began to talk loudly. I was at my wits’ end and wished that I had not stayed out so late. Finally, I plucked up courage and rushed to a seat near the driver so that he could help me should anything happen. Luckily the man did not follow me.

After some time, the bus reached my housing estate. Before I alighted from the bus, I stole a glance at the drunk man. He was fast asleep. I was thankful that I was not harmed. However, I was badly frightened and made up my mind never to travel at late hours without company.

An embarrassing moment

Talk about an embarrassing moment.

I could recall an event which happened four years ago. My father gave me a hundred dollars, for the good grades I scored in my P.S.L.E.. To enjoy it, I invited some of my closest friends to a restaurant for a meal.

At the restaurant, I asked my friends to order as much as they liked. The food was delicious, the service was efficient and the food was served fast. All of us began to eat. We ate, talked and laughed at the jokes we made in school.

After we had finished our food, the waiter brought us the bill. I opened my purse to take out the money. To my surprise, I found my money missing. Only then I realized that I had left the money at home. I was in such a hurry that I had forgotten to put the money in my purse. I wanted to borrow the money from my friends, but none of them could help me. They had brought only enough money for bus fare. I told the waiter that I had forgotten to bring my money. The waiter was very angry and told me to see the manager. The manager was a kind gentleman. He allowed me to go home and get the money, but I had to leave my identity card with him. I immediately telephoned my sister and told her to bring the money to the restaurant. Ever since that day I have stopped patronizing the restaurant. I am afraid that some of the waiters might remember my face. It was the most embarrassing moment in my life.

A fire accident I have witnessed

Describe a fire accident I have witnessed

Fires are mainly caused by carelessness on the part of the occupants of a house, factory, office or a shop. Sometimes, fire can be caused by electrical short circuit or lightning.

Last week, I visited my friend in Jurong. There I had the opportunity to witness a terrible fire which gutted almost the entire row of small factories. It was around 8 p.m., my friend and I were practicing our guitars for the forthcoming music competition. Suddenly, we were attracted by shouts and sirens. They were also cries of distress. We rushed out of the house and saw a huge fire engulfing the factory situated some four hundred meters from our block.

With horror filled eyes, my friend and I ran towards the place. We saw a plastic factory on fire and the workers were helpless. By then, a big crowd had gathered and nobody could do anything but to express sorrow. Within minutes of our arrival at the scene, several fire engines arrived. It was a tragic event which I cannot easily forget. I saw fear and panic everywhere.

The firemen were engaged in a heroic battle with raging fire. They seemed helpless as the jets of water from the hoses were not able to control the fire. The firemen struggled for nearly six hours before the fire was subdued. By then nearly four factories were completely gutted.

I will never forget this fire incident.

Describe a fire in the hospital

Describe a fire in the hospital that you witnessed.

I was visiting my friend Sally in the hospital. She had a bad fall a few days ago, and she was being treated for shock and bruises. I was chatting with her when suddenly a shrill alarm went off.

We saw the doctors and the nurses huddled together. Then a nurse or a doctor went to speak to each patient. A doctor approached Sally’s bed and told us that a fire had started on the seventh floor of the hospital and the fire brigade had been summoned. He told us to remain calm and we would get out of the building quickly.

However some of the patients started to panic and we heard some of them crying. We also heard the siren of the fire engines. The head nurse announced that the stronger patient would have to use the emergency stair exit, while the firefighters would use special equipment to lift the injured patients through the windows.

A nurse helped to guide Sally down the staircase. The nurse asked me to help another patient. I went to the next bed and helped guide a woman with a bandaged arm towards the staircase. She was sobbing quietly. I assured her that since we were on the fourth floor, we would escape without any danger.

When we reached the second floor, a group of policemen and firefighters rushed to meet us. They led us to the ground floor and out of the building.

The patients drew together, as though happy to see each other again. A nurse told us that the fire was under control. All the patients had been saved; and only a few suffered minor injuries. The patients clapped for they were thankful for the courage and the skill of the hospital staff, the firefighters and the policemen.

Experience of being kidnapped

Talk about your experience of being kidnapped

My chauffeur was sick and I was told to take a cab home. I decided to walk instead and took the shortcut through a rubber plantation.

As I was walking, I noticed four men in dark glasses following me. I became frightened. I started running and was horrified to hear footsteps close behind me. Suddenly, I felt myself jerked back roughly. The next thing I knew, I was blindfolded and gagged. I struggled wildly to free myself but to no avail. I was dumped onto some rough sacks. Then I heard an engine start. The kidnappers must be driving me to their hideout.

In their hideout, the kidnappers called my father and demanded a ransom of one hundred thousand dollars for my release. They warned him that my life would be in danger if the police were notified. They also arranged to meet my father at a jetty at three o’clock in the morning.

At the appointed time, the men brought me to the jetty. My father was there, waiting anxiously. After collecting the money, the four men released me.

As the kidnappers were about to leave in a boat, the policemen, who were lying in ambush, ran out to arrest them. After a short struggle, the four kidnappers were caught. My family was thankful that I was safe and sound. I was glad that my father had notified the police.

A robbery at a late cold night

Describe a robbery at a late cold night

One late cold winter night, we heard the moan of an old lady from the nearby house. The old lady was living alone with her ailing husband who is also bedridden. Her sons were living in Australia. The old couple refused to leave their homeland and therefore live alone. We left sorry for them and as neighbors we often help them in any way possible. It seems on that cold winter night some burglars had entered their house through the kitchen window which was not properly grilled and locked.

The burglars had overpowered the old people, tied them to the chair and cot respectively, took away six hundred dollars and jewels. The old lady managed to free herself from the bonds and crawled to the corridor with a moan which we all heard. Several people rushed over immediately and the men tried to untie the old man and then to inform the police. The women were helping the old lady by applying cold water to the bruises and rearranging the furniture. The rope was very tight and the old man suffered bruises on his skin.

Two of us ran out to see if the culprits were still around. Soon we heard police sirens, two patrol cars screeched to a halt in front of our house and we saw policemen running up the stairs. The policemen made a thorough search and got statements from the old people. The old people’s monthly pension money and some of the jewel which they valued were gone.

Messages were sent to their sons abroad. One week later one of their sons returned to Singapore and brought the old people to Australia. Despite the robbery, the old couple were reluctant to leave Singapore. Finally, they were persuaded by us to accept their son’s offer.

On the date of their departure, the old couple thanked all those who came to help them in their hour of need.

When I am kidnapped...

Talk about a kidnap.

One evening, I was alone at home, when a smartly dressed couple knocked on my door. The woman smiled and asked me if she could see my parents. I told her that they had gone out but would be back soon. I invited them into the house.

I was surprised when they suddenly grabbed me. They tied up my hands, gagged my mouth and blindfolded me. I was huddled into a car and driven off to an unknown destination. I was too frightened to do anything. After driving for about two hours the car came to a stop. They dragged me out of the car and pushed me into a corner. When my blindfold was removed, I found myself in a dark hut. I slowly moved towards the locked door and I heard them saying that they were going to ask a ransom of $20,000 from my father in exchange for my return. When I heard this, I was very frightened.

Finally I decided that I had to escape from these kidnappers. I looked around the dark room. There was no means of escape except for a small window, which was locked. I waited till the kidnappers had fallen asleep before I tried to open the window. I managed to prize open the window with my penknife, which I carried in my pocket. Quietly I slipped out of the house and ran as fast as my legs could carry me. Since it was very dark, I stumbled and fell a couple times. Finally I reached the main road. I saw a car approaching. I waved and stopped the car. I told the driver what had happened. He took me to the nearest police station, and made a report. Then I led the police to the place where I was held captive earlier. The kidnappers were arrested.

My parents were happy to see me safe and sound. The police officer praised me for my courageous deed.

A robbery I witnessed

Talk about a robbery you witnessed

It happened on one Saturday evening. My mother and I went shopping to buy a gift for my father. After much thought my mother decided to buy a gold ring.

We went to a goldsmith’s shop. The Sales Assistant showed us a lot of gold rings in various designs. My mother was enchanted by a ring with a sparkling diamond on it. As we were admiring the ring, four men wearing ski-mask rushed into the shop. They ordered all the people to stand up against the wall with their hands raised above their heads. The four robbers were armed with guns. They were dressed in black and wore gloves on both hands. One of the men placed a brief case on the counter and ordered one of the Sales Assistants to empty the trays of jewelries into the briefcase. The Sales Assistant was shaking with fear, and quickly started to do what he was ordered to do.

I notice that the burglar alarm was not far from where I was standing. I slowly moved towards the alarm, and tried to reach it without being noticed. After much difficulty I managed to get close to the alarm. I cautiously lifted my right leg and pressed the button. The alarm started to ring loudly. The robbers panicked, they grabbed the briefcase and rushed to a waiting car and drove away. I rushed out of the shop to see the number of the car. I quickly memorized the number of the getaway car.

A few minutes later the police arrived. I told them the number of the robbers’ car. They immediately informed headquarters to put up road blocks. They questioned us before letting us go. Photographers took photos of the scene of the robbery.

Next day my father read in the papers that the robbers were caught and the stolen goods recovered.

A pickpocket I witnessed

Talk about a pickpocket you witnessed

I hate to travel on the MRT train in the evening because it is very crowded. I have to compete with other students and adults going home from work for seats.

This evening, I just managed to squeeze into the train. There were no seats available, so I stood by the door and looked at the people around me, trying to forget my discomfort. I looked at some of the passengers. One was sleeping, one was staring blankly into space and another kept putting his right hand in and out of his pocket. This last person has small shifty eyes and he kept looking around. I turned away immediately when he caught me staring at him.

Out of curiosity, I looked at him again some minutes later. At that instant, I saw him withdrawing his hand from a lady’s handbag. In his hand was a purse! Straight away, I pointed at him and shouted, “Pickpocket! Pickpocket!” Everyone was alerted, including the pickpocket.

As the pickpocket tried to get away, a few men quickly grabbed hold of him. He was caught and sent to the police station. I was praised for my quick action and was glad that I had helped the lady get back her purse.

A burglary I witnessed

Talk about a burglary you witnessed

It was a peaceful afternoon. I was doing my homework in my room when I heard a strange grinding noise coming from next door.

Out of curiosity, I looked out of my window. I was shocked to see my neighbor’s metal gate lying on the ground and the door ajar. As no one else was at home, I called up my father at his office. He told me to stay at home and wait for him to come back. I went back to the window and peeped out. After a while, a burly man came out of my neighbor’s house with a big bag and quickly ran away.

Just then, my father came back with four policemen. I told them what I had seen. Immediately, two of the policemen went after the burglar. The rest of us went into the neighbor’s house. The whole place had been ransacked. Drawers were lying all over the place and the bedrooms were in a real mess. My neighbor happened to come back at that time and she was most distressed to find her house broken into.

The next morning, I saw the following headline in the newspaper: “Boy helps police catch burglar”. I felt really proud of myself.

Describe the beauty of nature

Talk about the beauty of nature

In the evening I sit in front of my house and feel the soft gentle breeze caress my face and cool my body. The breeze is simply beautiful and nature gives it free to me. Actually nature gives this free to everyone, but it seems that not everyone is aware of this.

Sometimes the sky is immensely blue. White silvery clouds glide almost imperceptibly against it. The clouds are never the same as they change their shapes continuously. These things are more beauty that I perceive around me.

Some days when the sky turns black with thick heavy clouds, a distance curtain of falling rain can be seen. It appears as though some unseen hand is pouring water onto the land to nourish it. The sight is beautiful and it makes me feel closer to the beauty of the Earth.

After a thunderstorm, the air is crisp and cool. Birds come out and sing out their joy to life. I sing too as I frolic on barefoot on the cool wet grass beside my house. The drogs croak joyfully. Even the insects seem to buzz and shriek louder. I am sure they are all singing about how beautiful life is. Indeed it is.

In the night the stars make their appearance. Millions of these twinkling jewels can be seen in the black sky. How wondrous it is to gaze at the glory of the universe. No doubt I am just a tiny part of it, but to be able to take it in through my senses makes it even more wondrous.

At night the moon often makes its appearance. Sometimes it is round. Other times it is crescent-shaped. Nevertheless its presence adds to the beauty of the backdrop of stars in the far reaches of space. It is amazing that there are such things.

The little garden beside my house is filled with the things of nature. Little bees, butterflies and other insects fly among the flowers in search of food. The flowers themselves are brightly colored with every possible combination of colors and hues. I feast my eyes on the scene of immense activity and again witness the beauty of nature’s innumerable wonders.

Since the next day is a holiday, we do not bother to do any homework. We watch television as there are better shows during the weekend. Also our father allows us to stay up as late as we like as we do not have to get up early. At times we sit around our father while he tells us stories. He has many stories to tell about his younger days. We learn many things from what he tells us.

By midnight my elder brother will have to return from town as he is not allowed to come home later than that. Sometimes he buys back some supper which we all share in before going to bed. Finally, when the clock has gone past twelve we all go to bed.

Describe your family at home in evenings

Describe evenings at home

On weekdays, evenings at home are pretty tame affairs. When the sun sets and it gets dark, there is nothing very much I can do outside. So I usually remain indoors.

Usually I complete whatever homework that has to be done. Sometimes there is no homework so I fool around with my baby sister. She is a load of fun and energy and there are a dozen things we can do together. She especially likes to read picture books and play with colored pencils as any two-year-old would. So we go through her collection of pictures and coloring books. By eight in the evening, my mother would come and get her ready for bed.

After the baby has gone to sleep, my mother, my father, my elder brother, elder sister, younger sister and I would sit together in the dining room to have our dinner. My mother is a great cook and we enjoy our food tremendously. My elder sister is already a good cook. So she helps my mother with her cooking. I sometimes help out too, but I am not such a good one.

After dinner, I wash up if it is my turn. The others adjourn to the living room. My father usually watches television. My mother usually has unfinished household chores like ironing clothes to do. So she does them. We, the children, sometimes watch television or listen to the radio. At other times, when we feel like it, we sit down and play some board games like Monopoly and Ludo.

At night o’clock my elder brother locks up the main gate and other doors. He has the task of making sure all the doors and windows are secure before we retire for the night. At about nine thirty, we usually go to bed to have a good night’s sleep. If we go to bed too late, it will be really difficult to get up late on time for school next morning. I always make sure I have enough sleep every night. If there is something really worth watching on television then we may stay up a bit later. However my father insists that we all get to bed by ten thirty at the latest. We are all in bed by the time regardless of anything good on the television.

On weekends, evenings at home are a bit different from the usual. My elder brother, who is already in Form Six, gets to go out with his friends for an evening in town. We, the younger ones, are not allowed to go out unless we have good reasons to. Usually then we stay at home.

Describe a school mid-morning break

Describe a school mid-morning break

The lunch-bell peals. Pens and pencils are hurriedly pushed into their cases. Files click shut, satchels snap and chairs desks get dragged aside. Scuffling feet race towards the canteen.

The early birds are already seated on the benches, seriously eating away. An appetizing blend of aroma floats about the canteen, but it is the strong smell of hot mee soup that pulls a large crowd to queue in front of its stall. The others discouraged by the long queue head to other stalls after casting wishful glances at the huge steaming pot of hot soup.

On the other side of the stall, helpers work feverishly to serve these hungry mouths. Steaming bowls of soup, fried rice, fried chicken and sandwiches are passed in exchange for coins that are tossed into tinkling money baskets. The change from notes is thrust into ready palms that quickly pocket the jingling coins.

The canteen grows crowded. Orders are shouted above the constant drone of busy hungry people. Someone starts banging the automatic drink dispenser. Finally, something clicks, and his frustrated bangs are rewarded with a glass of thirst quenching drink.

People keep weaving their way through the crowd, cautiously carrying bowls of soup or plates of hot curry. Some push through the crowd and get yelled at. The benches are crowded and there is not a vacant seat left, so some people wait for others to finish their food. The benches are filled with all kinds of people. Some literally plough through their food, slurping away. Others eat slowly, licking every mouthful. Yet others sit very complacently with their home cooked packets of “nasi bungkus” or home-made sandwich loaves. Then there are the perpetual bookworms with a fork in their right hands and a book propped up in the left. The weight watchers determinedly sit in a corner nibbling at their crackers, sipping calorie free drinks and chatter and gossip to pass the time. Some of them group together and sing the latest hit tune with the throbbing beats blaring out of mini cassette players. Occasionally a small group gathers in a corner to try to recapture childhood thrills in a game of “chapteh” or marbles. These games, however, do not last long as they are promptly booed at by the onlookers who assume they are a “mature” lot. At the other corner hot debates on classroom projects and homework assignments take place as usual.

The bell peals again to signal that the lunch break is over. Stomachs belch, deters sigh with relief, the bookworm who was so engrossed in his notes suddenly rushes to get himself a quick drink. The crowd disperses immediately back to the classrooms. A cat and a few birds appear quickly to scavenge the chicken and fish bones and crumbs felt behind on the table after yet another regular lunch break at school.

Describe the scene in a shopping complex

Describe the scene in a shopping complex

In every large town now there are dozens of shopping complexes to cater for the ever increasing population. These complexes contain a variety of shops. They sell shoes, sports goods, clothes, computers, video and audio equipment, furniture, musical instruments, cameras and films, food, drinks and many other things.

There is one shopping complex in my town that is frequented by many people. I would say that it is the most popular one in town.

The moment I enter the shopping complex via its large entrance I virtually step into a different world from the street outside. The air in the complex is distinctly cooler. The air-conditioning is very effective. No wonder I see many youngster just loitering about the place. It gets pretty uncomfortable outside under the scorching sun.

There are armed guards in uniform stationed near a couple of goldsmith shops. Two of these guards look old and feeble. They must be retired army or police personnel. In the event of a robbery I doubt they would be of any use. Judging by the bored look on their faces, the shops might just as well have no guards at all.

On this ground floor of the complex there are many other shops. From where I stand near the goldsmith shops I can see people crowding near a computer shop. An audio tape shop blasts out the latest hits through two giant loudspeakers. A few meters away, behind the receptionist’s counter, a pretty girl seems to be speaking into a microphone. I can hardly hear what she is saying. The music from the loudspeakers is too loud.

There is also a supermarket on the ground floor. From afar I can see that it is just like any supermarket. Shelves after shelves are stocked with cans, packets, bottles and tins of common items like milk, beverages, sweets etc. the salesgirls seem very busy stacking the goods onto the shelves. Shoppers seem very busy removing them from the shelves.

I walk towards the elevator that is going up. I pause to let two persons before me get on and then I get on too.

The fist floor look similar to the ground floor except it has no supermarket. Instead there are many video arcades. I can see figures of youngsters inside hunched over the consoles feverishly working their fingers trying to beat the electronic machines. I used to be just as crazy as they but I have got over the madness. The machines are addictive and the addicts spend large amounts of money feeding them.

I proceed to the second floor via the elevator.

Again the air is filled with the sound of video games in progress. I walk past many arcades and other shops. Here on the second floor there are less people. Most of the shoppers are concentrated on the ground floor. That is where the bulk of the complex’s business is done. Up here there is more room for walking and browsing. The shopkeepers also are friendlier. I walk leisurely around the whole floor.

I stop by at a music shop to have a look at the guitars on sale. They are too expensive for me. I leave.

Next I wander into my friend’s sports shop. I chat with him about the coming Thomas Cup battle. He laments about the weaknesses of our team. He also laments about the lack of customers in his shop up here on the second floor. He says he will move down if he can find a place.

Finally I leave my friend’s shop and descend straight down to the ground floor. I notice the great difference in the number of shoppers compared to the higher floors. Perhaps my friend does have a point.

Anyhow I had come to the shopping complex to cool down a bit. I feel very much better now, good enough to go out under the scorching sun again.

Describe the scene at a crowded food center

Describe the scene at a crowded food center

My favorite food center comes alive only at night, every night. During the day it is a municipal council car park. At night food vendors are allowed to make use of the place to sell their food. They have to pay a small fee to use the place, but I am sure they can afford it.

With a couple of friends, I reach the food center at about seven in the evening. The sky is already darkening and the vendors have their portable fluorescent lights switched on. I walk between two rows of food stalls.

The very first thing that strikes me is the mouth-watering smell coming from the satay stall. Ah, I can see the satay seller half hidden in the clouds of smoke from his charcoal fire. There are many people seated around the tables behind him obviously enjoying the very delicious satay. We are in luck. A group of people at a table is just leaving. So my friends and I quickly occupy the table before some other people do.

The satay seller knows me, for I often come to have some satay to eat. He nods his head to acknowledge my presence. I wave in return. In a minute or two, a steaming plate of satay is placed on our table, followed by some pieces of cucumber and onion. Our gravy then arrives and we proceed to put the lovely pieces of meat into our mouths.

For five minutes or so I am oblivious of my surroundings. All I do is to eat and eat until nothing is left on the plates. When all the food is finished we order glasses of sweet sugar cane juice to drink. I finish off two glasses. How wonderful it is to have such food and drink.

We pay for the food and drinks and leave the satay stall. We decide to walk among the stalls to have a look.

It is about seven thirty and the tables around the stalls are nearly filled with people. Young and old, fat and thin people of all shapes and sizes come here to enjoy in the many varieties of food available. I see the mee seller feverishly at work trying to cope with the orders for his mee. Some of his customers are already eating. Chopsticks and spoons dig into the bowls of mee. Other customers wait patiently for their food.

Next to the mee stall is the tea stall. The fat man selling tea there is busy making teh tarik. He pours the tea from one cup to another with practiced ease. Not a drop is spilled. Some passers-by stop just to watch him pouring the tea. He pours the tea from even higher. A small boy claps. The fat man is obviously very pleased. He grins happily.

I look around me. There are stalls selling rojak and mee goring, sup kambing, sup ayam, koay teow, popiah, chicken rice, fried rice, rice with fish, fruits, drinks etc,. The variety is staggering. No wonder the place is so popular. The food is cheap and good. It is great to be able to eat them. It is great that we have food centers like this in our country.
