A hometown is a place that we must appreciate. I love my hometown very much because it has a beautiful scenery in the evening. The scenery looks beautiful because of Santubong Mountain. In addition, it has fresh air and many big trees to add to the beautiful scene of my hometown.
Besides that, Santubong Mountain is also the reason why I am in love with my hometown. The freshest, fastest and coldest water comes from it! It is our source of water. Although we have three rivers there, that river is only used for fun! For example, kids and adults will spend their holidays with their family there.
Our neighbours are friendly, nice and tolerant people. We always share what we have. We give food, clothes and money if our neighbours are in need. When we celebrate our festivals, like Gawai Dayak and Christmas Day, we will invite our neighbours’ families from the city to our houses. We will treat them nicely with our homemade biscuits such as ‘kuih penyaram’,’kuih jala’ and ‘kuih sepit’.
We speak in Bidayuh Padawan there, but I do not speak that language because I did not have time to learn my own language. Every time I go back to my village, my friends will come to my house to be my Bidayuh teachers. They wish that I can speak in Bidayuh very well soon. They will teach me three times a week.
In conclusion, I am very proud of my own village. It is because I have many caring, lovely and friendly friends in my beloved village. In addition, their parents are also nice, tolerant and hardworking people. I love to go to my hometown and meet my beloved great grandparents and my best friends.
