I cannot say which day of the week is my favourite day because it is unknown how a day would end up. But still, school days are never days that I look forward to. School, homework and tuition classes burdens me. Excluding the schooldays, only Friday or Saturday would be my choice. The day I like the most, is Saturday. Saturday is perfectly placed at the last day of the week. As usual in the morning I would have to go to school for co-curriculum activities. Those activities are exciting and of course it is better than sitting in the classroom.
My mind is filled with schoolwork or tuition classes everyday in the classroom, these make my life miserable. Early in the morning, I will go to the string orchestra’s practice. Through this, I learn a lot of things and knowledge about music, especially from my coach, Mr. Lim. He is a nice and humorous person. But when he teaches us violin, he becomes strict. I really learnt the skills as he teaches patiently. Apart from string orchestra, I also go to the Librarian Society’s meeting once a month. All the members will discuss the library management for the month.
The benefit of becoming a librarian, is that we can borrow more books than normal students. Other than the above, I also enjoy and have fun with my friends. I know lots of friends from different classes and ages in both of the society. Normally I will stay at school until 12 noon, unlike the other days, I am capable having more free time at home. I will stay back for extra classes or tuition classes. So, I do not have much time at home except on Saturdays. Firstly, I will relax and play computer online games or chat with my friends. I cannot control myself unless my parents scold me few times.
I am a music lover, so I would also listen to some melodious song when I am free. At the same time, I will do some revision of my studies. As always I will also practice my piano. I enjoy playing piano as it sounds good. I love Chopin’s piano pieces as it makes me feel comfortable. My stress level brought down while listening to songs and playing the piano. In the evening, I will go to the park nearby for a jog with my parents . Just like what people always say , exercise regularly every week is good for health and keeps our body fit. So, my parents will not miss exercising as long as the weather stays fine.
Sometimes, my friends will invite me to play badminton at the park, too. They are good at sports except me, so it is laborious to play badminton with me. So, I really take my time on Saturdays to exercise outdoor. Besides, I could also spend my time with my parents so we would understand each other better. At night, we will stay at home for dinner. We had no chance to have dinner at home together usually because both of my parents need to work and have no time to prepare dinner for the family. Finally at the end of the week, we get time to prepare dinner. I will help my mother to cook.
I get to learn to be an independent person. My mother always say that she would not worry about my future even if I stay at the dormitory or go for National Service. After finishing our meal, we will watch television programmes together. We will discuss about the dramas or movie. My parents always show interest in what I had done in school. We talk about things which happened in school, no matter whether it is a happy or unhappy incident, I will still share with them. Not all the Saturdays are the same if it is a public holiday or school holiday, my parents will surely take me to Butterworth or Penang. he most important thing is to visit my grandmother in Butterworth. She will be happy to see us there. Sometimes, we would also go shopping in Penang too. We will go to the cinema to watch movies together. After shopping a the shopping complex we will go for dinner at the restaurant in Penang.
We will also go to the hawker centre to eat those famous local food in Penang such as ‘ice kacang’ or ‘chendol’. But I prefer Japanese cuisine, though, we only go for that if there are any special events because Japanese food is really expensive. Everyday when I wake up in the morning, I always wish that today is going to be a Saturday. but still, I have to go through Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday then Saturday. yet, we must be thankful for everyday, week, month and year because you never know when we will lose it, everyday is a gift. For the rest of my life I believe that Saturday will always be my favourite day. But just like I cannot just judge a person before I get to know him or her, I will not judge a day before I can see how it ends.
