Write a story that ends with: 'I had no idea that the day would end like this!'
 
The holidays had begun! I was very excited as it had been a long and stressful term. I was looking forward to a quiet holiday at home as I felt that I needed a total break. I just wanted to idle and relax as much as possible before the next term started.

The day started quietly enough. We got up as usual and went about our chores. Just as I finished sweeping the porch, I heard a car draw up to our gate. It was Uncle Suhaimi and his family from Kluang. I was surprised to see them as we did not have any calls earlier to inform us of their visit. My parents were very happy to see them and offered them drinks and some cookies. Mum went to the kitchen to prepare more food while dad quickly went to the sundry shops nearby to get some drinks and fruits.

It looked like it was going to be a day for relatives to visit us as Aunty Kamsiah and her family came by just before lunch. They had come to attend the graduation of their daughter and decided to drop in to see us. The graduation ceremony was just over and they were going to look for a place for lunch. My mother, of course, insisted that they stay for lunch and not go anywhere else! That was the typical hospitality my parents extended to others.

I was a little taken aback by the sudden influx of visitors but amazed at my parents' warmth and kind hospitality in reaching out to others. The house was noisy with the chatter and laughter of people and there was a general good feeling. I did wonder who were going to stay overnight and if I was going to lose my bed to our visitors.

I thought having so many relatives in one day was enough when my father's two friends from Kota Bharu came by! There was a kind of astonishment on my parents' faces but being the sporting people they were, everyone was made to feel welcome. Amazingly they had brought ketupat, rendang and other Kelantan delicacies knowing that father loved them! There was so much of food and everyone enjoyed eating all the various items. I made a glutton of myself!

Some of the visitors stayed the night and it looked like a slumber party for me as mum brought out some mats and many of us slept on the floor! Everyone left the next day. It had been an amazing day for me with loads of delicious food, good comradeship, love and laughter. I knew nothing would take away that warm memory of good interaction I had seen and enjoyed. I had no idea that the day would end like this!
