How are you and your family? I do hope you are all well and happy.
It has been some time since I have written, but life has been very busy. I
thought that being in Form 4 would be a breeze and we could just relax, but that
is not so. We have tons of homework, co-curricular activities and extra classes
almost every day. But I shall not complain. Hard work finally does
Anyway, I am looking forward to the next holiday, which is just around the
corner. Have you made any plans? My father has booked a holiday in Bangkok and I
was wondering if you would like to join us. There are just the three of us, so
if you came it would make a nice foursome. How about it?
Let me tell you what we plan to do. We shall leave on Friday morning at about
11 o'clock. Once we have arrived in Bangkok and checked in at our hotel we shall
do some sightseeing just around the area. The next morning, we plan to take the
sky train to the jetty. We'll cruise down the Chao Phraya, stop at the Temple of
Dawn and visit other interesting sites, such as the floating market. The
evenings will be free for shopping, so we can shop till
Most of our meals will be at the hotel. We also plan to sample the local food at
various food courts. I hear the food is both delicious and cheap. You enjoy `tom
yam', so don't miss the chance to sample it in its country of origin. I'm also
hoping to try the crunchy locusts and creepy-crawlies
sold by the hawkers.
We will be spending 4 days and 3 nights in Bangkok. We'll be home on Monday at
about 8.30 in the evening. You could spend the night with us and take the bus
down to Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday morning.
How do you feel about this? I know you are already busy preparing for the SPM,
but could you take a break and come along? I would love having you around. Do
think about it. I suggest you do all the studying you have to do now. That way
you won't feel so bad about a holiday in Bangkok! Let me know soon about your
decision. Dad wants to buy the tickets and he would need to know how many
tickets to get. I do hope you can make it. Write soon.
