Dear Fira,

What a pleasant surprise I got when I came across news of your recent mid-year examination results while I was glancing through the Facebook. Wow! You really scored  A's in all the core subjects especially English Language, Bahasa Melayu and History. I am really proud of you. I think it is worthwhile,  burning the midnight oil for the examination as you got flying colours.I guessed by now you have planned to go for a trip with your buddies. I hope you and your family are in pink of health.
            Anyway, I am writing this letter to inform you about my special school trip to Rantau Abang, Terengganu, where you can find the best 'kerepok lekor' in the world. The trip is organised by our Nature Society. We went there on August 10th to 14th, about two weeks ago and boarded a chartered  bus. There were 20 male and 20 female students. Also, three teachers accompanied the trip. All of us assembled at Dataran Kijang at about 8.30 a.m. and departed half an hour later. We finally reached Rantau Abang beach before noon.
            The first thing we did when we reached there was, we checked in at the nearby chalets, Indah Permai Chalets. Our programme started at 5.00 p.m. on the first day. We started with treasure hunt programme at the beach with formation of  four groups of which each group comprising of 10 participants. There were a lot of obstacles  to reach at the last point such as compiling  giant puzzles, and searching for man-made golden eggs.These  golden eggs are specially made and they are easily breakable.Participants who broke the  golden eggs would have to be delayed for 5 minutes and they would be asked to sing their favourite songs plus performing  traditional dance.Surely this event was full of fun. The winners were then awarded with goodies of  hampers and  RM 200 cash . After dinner we slept early and get ready for more interesting and exciting programme the next morning.I could hear the lion snore from one of my roommates who was extremely exhausted and she slept like a dead log with a loud  snore.Oh gosh!!
Then on the next day, we played  telly matches. We were given free hands to choose our own partners.The winner would then awarded with  two sets of breakfast  the next morning. Unfortunately,while  we were so engrossed  with the  the  game, one of the participants  had a serious  injury. It happened  because he was surging through many sharp rocks and incidentally  stepped on a protruding rock that caused his hand’s bone broken. The scene was thrilling as we could see both the bone and the flesh. 
Luckily Sir Amin, our English teacher teacher took  the initiative and took Mazlan,the injured student to the nearby hospital.He had to be  detained  at the hospital for a few hours.Meanwhile our game still  continued. And guess what? I  won the first place!
            Finally, the last day arrived. It was a sad moment because we were going home  the next morning. At  night, we  watched  turtle laying eggs at the beach. It was a memorable occasion for all of us. For the final touch, we helped the local workers collecting the eggs and put them in  the bucket.Then we transferred the whole eggs to the safe area.We want to make sure that these endangered species are protected.We headed home the next morning.
            The trip was not only fun but  we also learned about team building and most importantly, forging  closer relationship with classmates and other  friends. We also have to motivate ourselves so as to convince us that motivation really help us during stress period.Beside,being  independent is another good lesson for us throughout this trip.
 I have to pen off now.Congratulation again and best wishes to  you. I really hope to hear on how you spend your vacation then. Send my regards to your family especially to my gorgeous aunty. Be a good girl and always keep in touch with me.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Your cheerful cousin,
PTD 22.
