six-day tour to Angkor Wat and Ho Chi Minh offered by Lotus Travel and Tours. At RM1649
per person, the tour highlights are Angkor Wat and Tonle Sap Floating Village. There is a
boat cruise to visit the village. We get to see floating markets, floating houses and floating
schools of Cambodian fishermen. That sounds interesting but my younger sister isnt too
keen on it.
Im excited about the Ho Chi Minh City tour. The four highlight is the Cu Chi Tunnel, a
network of tunnels that were underground cities in the 1960s. We also get to shop at
Vietnams famous Ban Thanh market. My mum will enjoy it!
We can choose from 3 departure dates, 17 November, 25 November and 16 December.
Theres also another 4-day tour to Ho Chi Minh City which costs less at RM1249 per person.

Question 5. Read the poem below carefully, Then, answer questions (a) (d)
Mr Nobody
I know a funny little man,
As quiet as a mouse,
Who does the mischief that is done
In everybodys house!
Theres no one ever sees his face,
And yet we all agree
That every plate we break was cracked
By Mr. Nobody.
Tis he who always tears out books,
Who leaves the door ajar,
He pulls the buttons from our shirts,
And scatters pins afar;
That squeaking door will always squeak,
For prithee, dont you see,
We leave the oiling to be done
By Mr. Nobody.
The finger marks upon the door
By none of us are made;
We never leave the blinds unclosed,
To let the curtains fade.
The ink we never spill; the boots
That lying round you see
Are not our boots,they all belong
To Mr. Nobody
(a) From the poem, what do we know about Mr. Nobody?

Question 6. Read the poem below carefully. Then answers question (a) (d)
The rivers a wanderer,
A nomad, a tramp.
He doesn't choose any one place
To set up his camp.

The rivers a winder,

Through valley and hill
He twists and he turns,
He just cannot be still.
The rivers a hoarder,
And he buries down deep
Those little treasures
That he wants to keep.
The rivers a baby,
He gurgles and hums,
And sounds like hes happily
Sucking his thumbs.
The rivers a singer,
As he dances along,
The countryside echoes
The notes of his song.
The rivers a monster,
Hungry and vexed,
Hes gobbled up trees
And hell swallow you next.
(a) Why is The River like a nomad?

(b) Where would one find the treasure that The River keeps?

(c) What happens when The River is angry?


(d) Give 2 characteristics of The River.
