A Langkawi Holiday
Dear Susie,
I wish you were here with me in Pulau Langkawi. It is a beautiful island with lots of palm trees
and white sandy beaches. Since we arrived two days ago, Vicky and I have been helping our kid
brother build sandcastles every morning. We have to keep building them, as the sea always washes
them away. In the afternoons, we go swimming. My skin is getting quite a tan now.
Guess what? The resort threw a birthday party for me by the poolside! The band played the
Happy Birthday song and many guests sang along. Some American children we have just made
friends with played games like Charades with us.
We will be going to Penang in three days' time for a night at my Grandma's before going
home. I know I will miss Langkawi a lot, but Dad says we will come back here for a long holiday next
year. Hope you can come along with us then. Bye!
