On the fifth of May, I went to Sydney, Australia. Sydney's weather sometimes went from scorching hot to freezing cold.

At Featherdale Wildlife Park, my uncle got attacked by a flock of seagulls. Immediately after the attack, the seagulls started laughing at him. The best part was that this was all caught on camera! Hahaha! That’s what I call a hilarious and embarrassing sight.

On another occasi...

Leaving beads of sweat on the ground in my wake, I sprinted around the dirty field. It was the second half of our match against Banyan Primary School, and the score was tied at three to three. My team had been training relentlessly day and night to beat Banyan Primary School and win the finals of the inter-school tournament. Everything came down to this match. I had a burning desire to beat t...

“I love our sandcastle,” I squealed in delight. Last Monday afternoon, my friends, Jane, Mary and I were at the playground building a sandcastle in the sandpit. The sandcastle was as tall as a giraffe. I clapped my hands in glee at the sight of the magnificent sandcastle.

A few minutes later, two mean bullies arrived and stomped on the sandcastle. The two bullies chuckled like hyenas. Angrily,...

“Snowy! Where are you?” I bellowed with mounting anxiety. It had already been a week since my faithful companion, my dog Snowy, disappeared into thin air. When I woke up that fateful morning, the door was open and Snowy had disappeared. I slumped down on a wooden bench, heaving a sigh of resignation. My heart ached at the thought of Snowy. All of my good memories with the canine flashed befor...

Smiling faces surrounded me as I strolled around my backyard, greeting friends and relatives. It was the annual family barbeque that day. My cousins were rambling on and on about their trips to Japan. Pungent smoke was billowing from the barbeque pit as my father arranged the first skewers of chicken wings in the grill. I had always treasured the family barbeque party, as it was a special tim...

“Chirp! Chirp!” the birds were tweeting merrily as the sun rose from the East. Warm sunlight shone on my face as I woke up. Just then, I remembered that it was my birthday! I rushed downstairs to the living room and found a big pile of presents stacked in a corner! “Mom! Dad! Can I open my presents now?”, I asked. ”Sure!” Mom replied. I tore open the wrapping paper and saw a black bicycle! It...

“I can’t wait to show off my cool moves!” Dax hollered. Last December holidays, Dax and his family went skiing at Mount Fuji. Dax adjusted his ski straps. He then propelled himself forward to ski down the slope. His heart thumped very hard like a drum.

Soon, he sped down the slope. He zoomed on the slushy snow. Biting cold wind grazed his face. Adrenaline rushed through as he sped down the slo...

“Pass me the ball!” I shrieked to my sister, Adele. Our parents were at the shopping centre buying supplies for Chinese New Year. We were at home alone, and I had the responsibility of taking care of my sister.


Bored to tears, we tossed a ball to each other in the living room. “Even further?” I asked. The ball soared over my sister’s head. Crash! Mother’s priceless glass sculpture shattered i...

Last Sunday, I was at “Kiddy Toy Store”. My cousin’s birthday was nearing and I was determined to find him a good gift. My cousin loved cars so I browsed around the place for the perfect toy car. As I was looking at some toy cars, I heard a sobbing sound behind me. I turned around and realised that it was a little girl crying.

I knelt down and asked her, “Little girl, why are you crying?” Wi...

“Hello, my name is Little Bunny!” Mary squeaked, waving her toy bunny and pretending it was talking to the other bunny in her other hand. Last Friday, she was lying on her bed playing with her toy bunnies. Her room was as dirty as a pigsty and her toys were strewn everywhere.

Suddenly, Mary’s mother entered the room. She told Mary that she was going to be late for her Math class as she point...

“I am so excited. We are finally in Paris!” I chirped with joy. “According to my research, Paris is known to some people as the country of love,” my sister added in the know-it-all tone that she occasionally used. As she began googling about Paris on her smartphone, I simply rolled my eyes. Such comments usually got on my nerves. Brushing that aside, I recalled that I was on holiday, and holi...

I sighed as my stomach rumbled loudly. Was there anything at home that I could eat? My eyes lit up as I recalled the jar of cookies that Aunt Sera had bought for my family. Those delicious chocolate chip cookies would satiate my hunger!

As I entered the kitchen, my eyebrows lifted in surprise when I regarded the jar on the table. Once an overflowing jar, it was now completely clean and empty...
