  1. I would like to describe about my sister Kung, who is 5 years older than me. We grew up in a close-knit family in the countryside in Thailand. Kung was the eldest of 4 children and looked after all of us when my parents were busy. When we were children we played together and I have got to know her much better. She is a woman that I admire and respect.


    Kung is small and white, a typical Thai woman. She has long straight black hair. She has a elliptic face, big beautiful eyes, a dimple in her chin, height nose and white skin. All together, my sister is a beautiful woman. She looks younger when she smiles. She has got an open, honest face and she laughs all the times. She is an extremely energetic and hard-working woman who is good at most things cooking, looking after children, listening to others. If I have a problem, I know that I can discuss it with her and that her advice will always be practical and down to earth. Above all, she will not judge me. She is the sort of person you can trust.


    They say that blood is thicker than water and in Kung’s case that is certainly true. I am very lucky to have her as a sister and as a friend.

  2. writing describing people-Kungking


    Kungking is my darling daughter. She is a slender young girl of average height. She has long straight black hair with bangs that touch the top of her glasses. She has a elliptic face, big beautiful eyes, freckles, a dimple in her chin, hight nose and brown skin. Altogether, my daughter is a beautiful girl.

    She usually wear her favorite T-shirt, jeans and a new pair of white leather shoes. However she does not like dark clothes, For example, black, brown....ect. She hates to wear a dress and skirt because it is not safety device which she think. She puts on a golden necklace, earrings and backpack when she goes out.

    Kungking is a very intelligent and gifted girl. For instance, She gets hight score of examination at school. She is a honest person, friendly and lively person. Also she is very musical and artistic as she plays the piano very well and draws cartoons well. She plays the jazz music by paino every weekend. So, we will listen to the dulcet music next weekend.

  4. My Best Friend Essay, English Composition Writing on My Best Friend
    My best friend is someone I have known since my childhood. Our friendship goes back to the time when I was ten years old. His name is Harry, and he lived a couple of blocks from my house. We had a lot in common, and we spent time together during the weekends.

    I remembered many of my favorite hobbies were because of his influence. I learned to play the guitar from him, and I started martial arts classes because he did the same. That was back in the year 1974. Now you know how old I am. That is right, the years have gone by, and even today as I sit here typing on my computer, I still have my guitar sitting right beside me. It was a hobby that changed my life and I thank him because he was the one who taught me how to play the guitar. I remember the days when we used to have our own bicycles. That was my first bicycle, and I wanted to have one that look just like Harry's. Strange, but somehow, he seemed to be a big influence on me in my early years. Maybe because I saw him as a role model.

    Weekends, we would go over to each other's house and practice guitar, and martial arts, Tae Kwon Do, to be exact. Those were the days when Bruce Lee was very popular, and as I recalled, we used to go to school, elementary school that is, with our own version of nan-cha-ku, tucked away in out book bag, away from the sight of our teachers. Asd I think about those days now, I never fail to relish its splendor. The days of innocence, never again to be revisited. However, at times when I look at my son, who is thirteen years old now, I could almost see him enacting some of the things I did in the past.

  5. My best friend, Harry, is no longer in contact with me. We have lost contact since we went on to separate secondary schools. He was in St. Patrick's Secondary School, and I went on to Raffles Institution for my secondary school. Do I miss him now, at the age of 49? Yes, I do. I had wanted to get in touch with him, and possibly some of my old classmates from Primary school, but they are no where to be found. I heard many years ago that Harry went on to be a sailor after graduation from seaman's course. It will be nice to know how everyone is doing.

    Best friends are like old wine, and the older they are the better. I just wish that someday, somehow, I will be able to reestablish contact with Harry Wong. So, Harry Wong Kok Hoong, if you are reading this, please get in touch with me. I am Ding Soon Kheong, I remember you used to call me Ding.

    This much I remember about you... Old address at 38 Lorong 14 Geylang Road. Your birthday is on October 30, 1961. Our primary school was Geylang English School, and yes, you had a dog named Bobby back then.

  6. I would like to talk about my best friend Sukanya. I am so lucky to have her.
    Without her I would not be as happy as I am now. I have known her for my whole life. We are neighbors so I see her often.

    Sukanya is small and quite slim. She has got an oval face with bright black eyes and a small mouth. She has long dark hair but she usually wears it in a ponytail. She is quite beautiful, especially when she smiles.

    She always seems to be in a good mood. We have nearly the same hobbies and sometimes the same opinions. She always brings out the best in me by being positive and cheerful.
    She is like a part of my family. I trust her as much as I trust my close family member. I find her very honest; she always says what she thinks. It can be useful sometimes .For example when we go shopping she tells me frankly what fits me and what not.
    We are really close to each other; she can tell if I'm lying even if I am keeping a straight face! I don't know how she does it!
    I don't know how it is possible but I am never bored with her.

    Sometimes she tends to be stubborn, she never admits her fault. But she is stubborn only with her parents, but we have never argued.

    I hope our friendship will be long and won't ever end.

  7. My Best Friend Sue


    My Best Friend Sue, so Loyal, Trustworthy, Loving and so Kind,
    Qualities I treasure in my heart, you truly were such a find.
    We have known each other for some thirty-odd years,
    I cherish each moment we've spent together, my dear.

    We went through moments that were good and bad,
    Even moments that were happy and sad.
    You supported me when I was in tears,
    We've been together through all our fears.

    Your smile is among Life's Precious Jewels,Genuine and Rare,
    But "Gods" great gift was you to me, I Love you I swear.
    The one that we call friendship,
    Has worth beyond compare.

    The bond we share is like none I've ever known,
    If the truth be told, with you I never feel alone.
    A friend is someone who sings your heart's song,
    Back to you when you have forgotten the words.

    When I asked the Lord to send a friend,
    Though many came and went.
    He gave much more than I ever asked,
    For you are the friend he sent.

    It takes more than caring,To be a real friend;
    The nature of friendship; Requires a blend
    Of warmest compassion, And love deep and true,
    To reach and to comfort, The way that you do.

    Because I can see, that your kind of friendship,
    Is Priceless to me. True friends are for life.
    Until the end, You're more than special,
    You're my Best Friend in the world.

    P.S. Love You Sue Till The End!!!
