Remembering Our Trip - Audrea Flennysha Jackie

It was the last day of school for 2019. My classmates and I were starting a long holiday but we had different plans. We were either returning to our villages to meet our grandparents or having family trips. My family actually planned to do both.

First of all, my father bought us a ticket to Santubong Embang Waterfall, Kuching and we decided to have the family trip on the 29th of November. We would use a bus for our trip so it would be so much fun. My father told us that we would go back to his village two weeks before our trip to Santubong Waterfall.

We sang along on the way to our village. At the village, we had lots of activities to do such as cleaning the house, having a barbecue, fishing, and more. It was a long time since we last visited our grandparents and they looked so happy every time they saw us.

One morning, I was bored so I went to check if their were any interesting things in my parents' room. When I stumbled across our ticket, I suddenly remembered our trip to Santubong Waterfall. I checked my phone and realized that day was the 29th of November!

I rushed to my father and told him that we forgot about our trip. It was 12 o'clock when my father told my grandparents that we were going back to the city because of the trip. The journey back would take 3 hours by bus, but buses were only available in the morning. It was already 5 o'clock when we got to the bus station.

My father told us that we had to cancel the trip because we could not arrive in time. We sadly went back home because that was the first time we had forgotten a trip. We wasted a lot of money on the ticket.

A Part-Time Job I Want - Audrea Flennysha Jackie

For the upcoming school holiday, I have decided to take on a part time-job while waiting for my SPM result. I choose to be a baker and I want to work at Taka's bakery shop that is not far from my neighborhood. Very few people want to be bakers and have a part time-job there because they love eating, not baking. Another reason why I choose this job is I love baking. Since the job is not a struggle, I can learn more about baking during my shifts which are 9 to 10 hours each. For me, baking truly keeps me fulfilled, free, and energized. As the bakery is near my home, getting there will not take an hour or have traffic congestion problems. Being next to Farley Mall, some customers stop by the cake shop after they have finished shopping at the mall. In conclusion, I hope that many customers will come to the bakery to buy some cakes for their loved ones. Delicious food can make people happy. Through this part time-job, I can save up my income for a rainy day. ---------- Audrea Flennysha

Life - Adriana Ingram

Every one of us needs to move on. As the saying goes, “life must go on.” Some of us even have suicidal thoughts, but there must be one thing that keep us from doing it. It could be our family, or someone that we love. A lot of teenagers get depressed, just like one of my friends. She was only 12 years old and she had a lot of problems. They were caused by her family and school. I felt sorry for her. Sometimes I sit on my bed on a rainy day and ask myself, “what is the point of me living in this world?”, “why am I here?”, “does my friend like me?” I would repeat these questions in my head for hours and hours. But then I remembered my parents! My family! That is the reason for me to live. Besides that, everybody has their biggest fears. Do you know what is my biggest fear? My fear is being in a plane crash and also a monster might be hiding under my bed. Well, that is just my imagination. I want all of us, the young generation, to move on, go forward and never ever look back. There are a

Playing Tennis In The USA - Hii Shieng Wee

Hi guys, I'm Hii. I come from Sibu, but now I'm studying at SMK Tabuan Jaya. Going to a foreign country has always been my dream because I wanted to see the outside world and feel the difference between other countries and my own. The story started from June 2019 when I received an invitation to enroll in SMK Tabuan Jaya from my Kuching-coach Stevie Din. Because of my work hard and respect, Coach Stevie helped me get into a program to go to Florida in the United States. When he told me this news, I felt very incredible and excited because I could realize my dream. In August, my Sibu-coach took me to Florida, because I was still a minor and too young to go abroad alone. Our flight started with my hometown in Sibu to KLIA1 to Hong Kong to Los Angeles and finally to Florida. When we arrived in Hong Kong, we had 5 more hours to go until our connecting flight, so we ate at the Hong Kong airport. After that, we went to Los Angeles. When we arrived in Los Angeles, we still had a fligh

Journey of a Lifetime - Erika Vallensia

Life is one word that comes with multiple meanings. It has lots of problems that you need to face every day. Full of ups and downs, it also has many blessings. To some people, life is hard, cruel, and merciless. Those people see life as a punishment throughout their entire lives. Do not worry about it though! All these problems that you are facing make you strong; it gives you courage to stand alone in the future. You all know that life is also full of moments of joy, pleasure, and success. Comfort is punctuated by misery, defeat, failures, and problems. For your information, no human being on earth who is strong, powerful, wise, or rich has not experienced struggle, suffering or failure. Life is full of paths. It is your own decision to choose the right one. You must work hard to get what you really want. Life is as interesting and wonderful as the stars in the sky. Without a doubt, life is beautiful and full of celebration. There are days when I suddenly feel all alone, not belonging

Visiting Escape Theme Park - Norafifah Hijrah Jaidi

My most unforgettable trip was to Pulau Pinang during a school holiday with my family. My brother proposed a trip to Pulau Pinang because he wanted us to do activities that we had never tried before. After the rest of our family agreed to the idea, both my brother and my uncle booked the flight tickets and a hotel online. The plan was set and ready to go. At 12 o'clock, we arrived at Pulau Pinang airport. I was physically exhausted, so we rested at Sunway Hotel Georgetown. The hotel was so beautiful, big, and fresh, and it had a huge wide pool. We slept well that night. On the next day, we were ready to go to Escape Theme Park, Penang, by bus. As soon as we got there, all of us were amazed and excited. It was huge and there were a lot of activities such as high-rope courses, zip lines, slides, a climbing tower, and other kid-friendly attractions.  There were 16 of us so we parted into two teams. That was my brother's idea since he planned the trip. We provoked and competed with
