1. Contoh 1: Cinderella.
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young girl named Cinderella. He lived with his step
mother and two sisters. They were arrogant and bad tempered. They treated Cinderella very
badly. Her step mother made Cinderella do the hardest job in the house, such as scrubbing the
floor, cleaning the pot and pan and preparing food for the family. Her step sisters, on the
other hand, did not work on the house. Their mother gave them many pretty dresses to wear.
One day, a king invited all girls in his kingdom to attend a ball in his palace. They were
excited about this and spent so much time choosing the dresses they would wear. Cinderella
could not stop crying after they left.
“Why are you crying, Cinderella?” the voice asked.
She looked up and saw a fairy standing beside her. Then Cinderella told her why she was
crying. Well the fairy said, “you’ve been such a cheerful, hardworking, uncomplaining girl
that I will see that you go to the ball.” The fairy turned a pumpkin into a coach and mice into
a smooth two coach man and footman then tapped Cinderella’s dress with her wand, and it
became a beautiful ball gown.
Then he gave her a pair of pretty glass shoes. Now, Cinderella, she said, “you have to leave
the ball before midnight”. Then he drove away a wonderful coach. Cinderella had a
marvelous time either. She danced again and again with the prince. Suddenly the clock began
to strike twelve, she ran toward the door as fast as he could do. In her hurry, one of her glass
shoes left behind.
A few days later, the prince declared that he would marry the girl whose feet fitted the glass
shoe. Cinderella’s stepsisters tried on it but it was too small for them, no matter how hard
they squeezed their toes into it. In the end, the king’s page let Cinderella try the shoe. She
stretched his legs and slipped the shoe on the page. It fitted perfectly. Finally, she was
ushered into a magnificent palace and height. The prince were glad to see her again. They
married and lived happily ever after.

I want to tell you about my memorable time in Singapore. It was one of the best holidays I
I shall never forget the spectacular sight of the city. I saw from Mount Fable that night. The
roller-coaster ride, the stunts performed by the dolphins and the killer whale at the Sea World
were also exciting. I shall remember the thrill of having been on one of the longest rides in
the monorail in Sentosa Island for many years to come.
I also enjoyed various varieties of seafood at the makeshift roadside stalls at the Chinatown
night market. I also enjoyed the shopping trips. My family and friends agreed that the
souvenirs were value for money, especially the silk scarves with pretty prints and the
attractive key chains.
