My friends

 
I am a gregarious kind of person. I enjoy the company of friends. I can divide my friends into fair-weather friends, buddies and true friends.

'Fair-weather friends' are those who come to you when they are in trouble. For example, Shah is always saying, 'Oh Jay, could I borrow ten dollars, please. I'll return it tomorrow.' `That shirt is really cool. I have a date tonight. Could I..: Another such friend is Ah Tan. `If you are a true friend, you would let me copy your assignment. I had no time to do it. Just the first page. What about the outline?' Of course if you are in trouble, they are the first to disappear.

Some of my friends share the same likes and dislikes as I do. For this reason, I like being with my buddies, Az and Boon. We go for shows together. We watch almost everything related to Star Wars and inter-space travel. We like watching football and are fans of Liverpool. During the English Premier League season, we would discuss and dissect the players and the games for hours each day. Boon, Az and I are bookworms and enjoy reading adventure stories, especially those by Clive Cussler. We also love to hang out at Seng's Kopitiam. Their fried chicken is truly crispy and fragrant. Once, we ate twenty pieces each. That was a record.

I am very lucky to have a special friend who is loyal to me, and always stands by me. My special friend lets me simply be myself. I can be grouchy and grumpy and he understands. I can ignore him and he does not sulk or retaliate. My true friend is Duke. Duke is a five-year-old mongrel, who is intelligent, warm and loving. He waits for me at the gate to welcome me home. When I feel depressed, he will play with me to cheer me up. If I am not in the mood, he will just nuzzle up against me to comfort me.

Yes, I do enjoy being with my friends. However, I do agree that a man's best friend is still his dog.
