One day, my friends, Ali and Shamsul invited me to go for a picnic at the waterfall. We had just
finished our Mid-year Examination

Along the way, we began to sing few songs. Suddenly, we heard a sound from the front of the
bus. The bus stopped. The driver got out from the bus. It was bad news. The back tyres of the bus were
punctured. The driver told something to all the passengers. He would call for help. It would take a while
to get the tyre changed.

After one hour, there was still no sign of someone would come to the rescue. We asked the
bus driver. He told us to wait a bit longer. There was not any technician available at that moment. We
felt so upset. We decided to walk to the waterfall. It is not far from that place. After thirty minutes
walking, I could hear the sound of the waterfall. We were not far from the waterfall. I told my friends to
walk quicker.

Finally we arrived at the waterfall. I was grateful. We managed to have a picnic at the waterfall.
In the evening, we went back home by taxi. We did not want the same incident happens again. For me,
this journey was very enjoyable and memorable. There were many obstacles that we had to face on
our way to the waterfall. (230 words)
