The past flashed through my mind. I realized with horror what must have happened. Ismail and I are the best of friends who have lived in the same neighbourhood for umpteen years.
In school, we have always joined the same sport — cross-country. The two of us never failed to jog every morning in the park. We especially liked jogging along the path by the big river. One fine morning, we went jogging by the river as usual.
We were jogging slowly as we talked about the coming inter-school cross-country competition. A reporter will sift through the different ways of writing the story - the different angles - and find a way to tell it. You, because you are writing an article or essay, have more options. For example, I have now concluded the first paragraph of my essay, and then expanded on it, thus ending the first major part of my essay.
So now I could offer an example here, to illustrate my point in practice, and to give the reader a chance to reflect, and a way to experience some empathy, before proceeding. This is also a good place to offer a picture, diagram, illustration or chart of what you are trying to say in words. At one place, we encountered a huge snake hissing at us from a bush about S. We were lucky not to be bitten by it. We caught glimpse of the beautiful hornbills, bluebirds and a Rufous Collared Kingfisher. After approximately forty minutes of walking, we finally arrived at our destination, in the middle of an open forest quite near to the breathtaking Indah Waterfall.
Now, lets start pitching the tent, Yus ordered. We loyally obeyed her command as we were the ones who chose her to be the group leader, being the oldest among us. It was already noon and we took out cans of sardines and loaves of bread for lunch before doing more exciting activities of discovering nature. Yus and Suhaila went to fetch some water, Farah and Ainul prepared the meal, Dayang laid out a mat for us to enjoy the moment of leisure in the forest.
I was instructed to search for firewoods. Dont go too far out, Yus reminded. Happily I went on my way gathering as many branches and twigs as I came across on my path.
This should be enough for at least two days, I thought to myself as I had collected a bundle of them. As I turned around, I suddenly tripped over a branch and fell down flat on my leg. My ankle, I moaned. I could not lift myself up as the pain on my twisted ankle was excruciating.
I did not realize I was too far away from the tent. Moreover, I left my mobile with Yus. How can I ask for help? I wonder. At moment like this, all I could think of was my teachers advice. If you are lost in the forest, you need to sit quietly at that particular spot until someone finds you. This will ease the searching work.
I did exactly that. Sit and wait. Staring at the sky, it had grown darker. The dark grey cloud was pregnant with rain. I prayed hard that someone in my group would notice that I was missing.
The sound of water dropping onto the leaves. I gathered all my strength, lifted my hips and tried to move to a big tree nearby. Before I could even blink my eyes, the rain started pouring cats and dogs. I sat myself under the huge tree, holding the bundle of firewood to my chest. All kinds of thoughts came to my mind. I shouldnt have come. There have been too many obstacles. Its afternoon and it does not look like it, I whined. Did I make the wrong decision?
I questioned myself. I must have dozed off. When I opened my eyes, the thick lianas hanging and gripping onto the hundred- foot-tall trees greeted me. I could hear the sound of the creatures of the forest. Insects chirping, the geckos in the hide calling. It was strangely soothing. I felt at peace as the symphony continued to play in my ears. Where are you? Ainuls call came piercing into my ears.
Im over here, I shouted back in relief. I saw my friends running towards me. I told them what had happened. Dayang and Suhaila kindly helped me up while Ainul and Yus got into the motion of snapping pictures of the nature. In the end, we spent the three-day break enjoying the beauty of mother nature.
Although burning our household wastes is a convenient way of getting rid of our rubbish, it is harmful to the environment as it contributes to the worsening of the air quality. They news of my predicament spread like wild fire throughout school. This made me feel worse than ever. There is so much to see and experience in the bright lights of the city that you cannot get in the countryside. The doctor-in-charge put me in a psychiatric ward for half a year, under close observation to help me cope with the terribly haunting tragedy. The manufacturing of products in factories to meet the growing demand of society is also causing air pollution.
I prayed hard that someone in my group would notice that I was missing. After approximately forty minutes of walking, we finally arrived at our destination, in the middle of an open forest quite near to the breathtaking Indah Waterfall. The forensic investigator covered my mom with a long white sheet and began sobbing uncontrollably. The control tower, standing at metres, is one the tallest in the world.
His colleagues were the one who made him realized his big mistakes neglected his mother. This is a big bonus to the members. He has left his mark in every aspect — in politics, economy or education. I am your father. They have a particular focus.
Quietly and suspiciously, I walked into the house sensing something terrible might have happened. This feeling of cooperation and neighbourliness is what separates the countryside from the city.
When the doctors deemed it safe, they performed an emergency C-section. There was an aura of authority about him. Sailors, pilots, sculptors, painters, and architects all exhibit spatial intelligence. That day, as I was watching TV, I heard the sound of breaking glass.
We loyally obeyed her command as we were the ones who chose her to be the group leader, being the oldest among us. What was happening to me. Air pollution is caused by the emission of toxic gases from vehicles, factories and open burning. He showed me that consistency and patience were two other important factors for success. And I am celebrating this new joy, this new me with my loving aunt. In that half an hour, from 3.
