                 One day I went to Bandung with my friend for a vacation. We went there on night bus. When we arrived in Cianjur, the bus stopped for a rest. I got of the bus to get a cup of coffee, but my friend didn’t. He went to a mosque to pray. It took only a few minutes to pray, but when I came out again the bus was not there. It had gone! Shocked and confused.  I asked the shopkeeper about the bus. She said that the bus had departed about five minutes ago.           I tried to call my friend on my cell phone, but the battery was running low. I couldn’t do anything but hope and pray. After several minutes, my wish came true. The bus came back! Got on the bus and walked to my seat. I was so ashamed when everybody on the bus looked at me. I could feel my face turn red.             I asked my friend why she didn’t tell the driver that I was still outside.             “I did, I told him several times that you were outside, but he said that you were in the bus toilet because he saw a man going into the toilet,” my friend replied, laughing.

    A Visit to a Wildlife Park                                       I recently visited Sydney with my parents. We visited many interesting places. The one I enjoyed best was the Wildlife Park.                    The Wildlife Park has a lot different Australian animals and birds. There are over 600 animals, including kangaroos, wallabies, koala and crocodiles. They are kept in their natural surroundings.

We were even allowed to touch them and to feed them. It was very exciting to be very so close to them. We saw koala bears. They looked very cuddly. I got my photograph taken with one of them. It is a wonderful souvenir of my holiday in Sydney.                    We also went to see the crocodiles. The Wildlife Park has a lot of fresh-water and salt-water crocodiles. Some of them were very big and scary with huge teeth. I did not get very close to them.                    We also visited the aviary. There were some very colorful birds there. I really liked an old parrot which could talk.                    I wish we could have spent more time in the Wildlife Park. There were so much to see.What is the main idea of paragraph 2 ?

                    One day, I had to teach a new English class. I read the list of new students’ names. It was kiddies’ group since they were about 9 and 10 years old.                That was the first day of The Spanish carnival, so I wanted to wear the most appropriate suit for the children’s class. Most kids usually dress up at carnival I thought. It would be more interesting if their teacher was also in carnival spirit. That was why I decided to wear my teddy bear suit and bring cuddly toys in my box.               And that was what I did. I walked through the door happily. The director watched me completely astonished. I smiled and looked straight at her. With a man beside her, she said, “ Good afternoon. I’d like to introduce you to Mr. Mendez, the director of Delta company. He is one of the participants of English course that you will teach today.”               Oh my God! I nearly died!

It would strike twelve in twenty minutes’ time. Fifteen minutes passed and then, at five to twelve, the clock stopped. The big minute hand did not move. We waited and waited, but nothing happened.
