I would choose orange juice because it is my favourite drink. It contains vitamin C so it is good for health. It is a nutritious and refreshing drink. It could quench my thirst. The price is reasonable and affordable. I have enough money to buy it. Although the orange juice comes in 300ml per tin, I think it is still enough for me. I will get six tins of drinks and I could share the drinks with my siblings and friends. This will save my budget.Besides, it is packed in aluminium tin which is light and easy to take to picnics or schools. Other than that, it is very easy to open and it could be recycled. I can use the empty tin to make a

pencil holder and it would be nice to me. Based on these reasons I


think it is the best choice for me.

Puan Mawar went closer to Hamid. She took out some money from her purse and gave it to

him. Hamid refused to take the money but Puan Mawar


insisted. Finally, he accepted gladly. He thanked his teacher for giving him the money.

As Puan Mawar walked away, Hamid rushed to the


burger stall. He was as happy as a lark because he could buy a burger for himself. He quickly bought a double cheese

burger which is his favourite. When he reached home , he


ate the burger. He shared it with his brother. He told his mother that Puan Mawar gave him the money. The next day, his mother asked him to return the money.
