My favorite day of the week
 
Everyone looks forward to the weekend. On Saturdays and Sundays, there is no school and people do not have to go to school or go to work. Of the two days, I love Saturdays better.

Saturdays are magical days, full of promise from the moment you open your eyes in the morning and realize that there is no reason to rush. You have the luxury of lazing in bed a bit longer, and even snoozing
for another hour. Or you can jump out of bed and get started on a day of total freedom. Basically, it is a day where you get to choose what to do, unless you are one of those unfortunate souls whose weekends are packed from dawn to dusk with activities ranging from tuition to archery lessons. Fortunately, my parents are not fanatical about achievements so I get to spend the day as I wish. Most of the time, I would decide how to fill the hours only after I wake up. My decision is largely dependent on my mood. It is not all play though. I would spend a couple of hours on household chores to help my mother out. After that, I would just recline on the sofa and read, or lie on my bed and listen to music.

I love Saturdays also because that is the day I get to meet up with my friends who are not from the same school. They would be my primary schoolmates and childhood friends. Usually, we would do some window shopping and then go to a mamak stall to have tea and chat. It is because we are able to meet on Saturdays that our friendship remains strong. Since we are all from different schools, it is fun to share about school life. This is something I look forward to every week.

Saturdays are better than Sundays for me because it is also a family day for us. On Sundays, we have to visit our grandparents or visit relatives which can be a little boring for me. But Saturdays are reserved
for just my family. We go to the supermarket together to shop for groceries. Mother makes a point of cooking dinner for us on Saturdays because she gets home too late on weekdays to cook a full meal. Sitting together for a meal is a special time for us to catch up with one another. Besides, mother's cooking is far better than any restaurant food, and she goes out of her way to make us our favorite dishes. It is something that makes my Saturdays so much more special.

There is no doubt that my favorite day of the week is Saturday. It is a day that is free of stress and allows me to do anything I wish. It is a day for meeting up with friends and it is a day when my family gets to spend some precious time together.
