Every time when I felt upset or sick, I liked to go to a special place where I could relax myself and feel better. It is the club; I have joined the club for 3 years. My sisters recommended this place to me; they told me that I could find many fun there. It’s near my house and our hospital, so I walked there in 10 minutes. I usually stayed there for 2 or 3 hours and went home. I loved the club; I felt comfortable there! The club only allowed women to be members; I didn’t worry about my privacy. The club was the biggest women’s club in my country.
It’s located in a basement where there was a lot of space to do the different activities. You could see a beautiful warm water pool in the middle area at first. You could find many big rooms behind the pool; there were a massage pool, a spa shower, a hot room, a cold room, an exercise room, an MTV center, a massage center, and two restaurants. When I finished my work everyday, I felt so tired. Everyone knew working in the hospital had many stresses. I needed to find a way to help myself; it’s the best choice for me.
I often took a shower first and swam for 20 minutes to relax my strained muscles. When I finished the exercise, I stayed at the spa massage pool. The strong water waves could massage my whole body. I usually took the oil massage once a month; it’s very fun when someone has good skills. Finally, I liked to watch a video and take a nap. Although it costs a lot of money to be a club member, I loved this club and enjoyed speding time there. I liked to stay there for a whole day. I hope I can join the club again after I come back to my country.
Describe an afternoon at the bus station (SPM 97) It was two o’clock in the afternoon. I was heading towards the bus station with Mohan after Mrs Wong’s extra class. The sun was beating mercilessly on my back and I could feel my sweat trickling down my spine. I have often wished that my mother would allow me to ride a motorcycle to school. She says that I am not ready but we both know that she is terrified that a car would knock me down. When I reached the bus station, it was nearly empty except for a handful of boys. Mohan and I strode to a bench near the stationmaster’s office.
I could feel the tension on my shoulders as the straps of my school bag ate into my shoulder. “Where is the bus? ” I sighed to myself. An elderly woman came and asked me where I was going. She started a conversation but gave up after my monosyllable answers. Suddenly, someone shouted and I saw a bus swerved into the station. I got up, thankful for the chance to escape from the woman. . It was Mohan’s bus. The group of boys were jostling each other to get into the bus. “Masuk! Masuk! ” shouted the conductor but nobody seemed to be moving.
The black fumes made me nauseous. All of a sudden, people started appearing from all directions to board their bus. In no time, the passengers were packed like sardines in the bus. It started to move, leaving some unfortunate passengers behind. I waved at Mohan when I noticed him dangling on the steps of the bus. The bus swerved out of the station again. It left another trail of black smoke. I decided to go to Panjang’s ice stall. The iced sugar cane juice soothed my parched throat as I sipped slowly, all the while keeping an eye on the bus.
Then I saw the bus heading towards the station. I paid for my drinks. “See you tomorrow,” I waved to Panjang. Once more, the crowd began to swell near the bus. I noticed that the elderly woman was being shoved around by the boys. She started hitting them with her umbrella. Then, I saw Raja, my classmate at the back of the bus. I hurled my bag through the window and he caught it. By the time I got into the bus, it had already started moving. I got into my seat and told myself that I must really try to convince my mother about the motorcycle again.
