Ocean Park and Australia
I like to go to Ocean Park because I like to ride on the rollercoaster. I like to sit in the cable car too. I want to go there this summer because I have a summer holiday. But, I don't like to go there on public holidays because there will be too many people in Ocean Park.
I also like to go to Australia because I want to hold the koala bears and feed the kangaroos. My aunt gave me some pictures about this before. They are really cute and interesting.

When I was walking along the street yesterday evening, I saw a black ugly cat. The cat had a pair of bright eyes and it scared me. Suddenly, the cat ran out to the road and was hit by a truck. The truck driver didn't stop and I ran back to my home frightened.
The next morning, when I was going to the bus stop, I saw a lot of people standing on the road where the cat died. I ran there and found that the truck driver was laying on the road with red blood under him. The most scary thing was that I saw some black cat fur under the driver too.

It could take you to the past or future. I tried to move it and it took me to an unknown time. I wanted to know when it was. It was full of huge animals. I went into a forest. A large animal tried to step on me. I left at once, but it tried many times to kill me with its foot. I saw its face, it looked like a lizard. I knew it was a long time ago. The big animal was a dinosaur. I was really scared of it so I went to find the plane. When I found the plane, I saw that it was by a dinosaur. I hid myself in the grass. Finally, the dinosaur left. I went to the plane as fast as I could. I moved it and it took me back to the future. Suddenly, a man asked me why I was sitting in his plane.

Ada's Garden Restaurant
Today I went to a terrible restaurant which was called Ada's Garden. It was a new restaurant and was only open for three months. I wanted to try it but it was very disappointing. When I went into the restaurant, it was really noisy because there were some customers arguing. Although I don't know what they were arguing about, I felt very annoyed. The waiters were not very good too. A customer complained to the waiter because the food was very slow. I think the restaurant ought to train the waiters again. They wouldn't lose customers if they improved their services.
