The house on the hill


     I had read the essay written by Chuan Xin Vee, 17 from SMK Seafield, Selangor and it really a splendid essay. This essay tells about a wonderful memories of a boy with a girl who lives in a house on the hill. He found the girl touching the flower tenderly and smiling to herself while he was cycling his bicycle. After that, he chat a little with the girl and found out that the girl have interest in imaginary creatures such as fairies. As the result of her not logical interest, she always been teased by other children but not the boy. They both became a good friend and always share their time together. One day, the girl`s house was half-eaten by the fire and the girl need to move. However, this incident did not break their friendship and they still connected to each other through letters.When the boy had grown up, he watched the site of the house and watching his vivid childhood memories. The house is no longer surrounded by beautiful flowers and the weeds take over the place. Then, he walked away from the remorseful, forlorn-looking house on the hill. The End. The story is really touching and it is totally a fine essay. It is the most interesting essay I have ever read.

                                    A World Of Wonders

       I had read an article about the world of wonder in Star and I found that it was very interesting and had really aspired me. This article tells about a boy who has a really deep interest in the world wonders and loves to gather all the pictures of the world wonders from the tin of Milo powder.

      One of the part in this article that I found really interesting is when the boy told about how he start to have interest in this wonders. It happened when he was about six and seven years old in the late 70s. He saw a poster about the world of wonder and started to get excited about it. I also get to know a few wonders in the world by reading this article such as Niagara Falls and the Great wall of China. It did have increase my knowledge about  the world of wonder. In my opinion, that what makes it interesting.
