My mother and I took the lift from the second level
of the underground car-park to get to the ground floor of
the shopping complex. The moment we stepped out of the
lift we were greeted by a blast of cool air and the blare of
music from a music shop nearby. The car-park was dark
and gloomy. The ground floor was bright and lively.
We were at the foyer of the huge shopping
complex. There were many people there. I could see a
goldsmith's shop, two music shops, a pharmacy, two book stalls, a video shop, an optician's shop and a large super-
Two very old guards sat in front of the goldsmith's
shop. They were nodding off. I wondered if they could
cope if robbers were to come to the shop. It did not look
like they could.
A "cheap sale" of clothes was going on in the
middle of the foyer. The crowd there was so thick that it
was impossible to get near the clothes. We walked past the
mad crowd and into the supermarket.
There were rows and rows of goods in the supermarket. We picked out the things we wanted and put them
in a trolley. When we had finished I pushed the trolley to
the check-out counter where my mother paid for the things
we took. Fortunately there were few people in the supermarket. The cheap sale had attracted the crowd. So it did
not take us long to buy what we came for.
We came out of the supermarket and passed the
mad crowd. I noticed that one of the old guards at the
goldsmith's was actually snoring! Anyhow we proceeded to
the lift and left the shopping complex.
