Vacations!?! Oooo! I love them! I love to spend my vacations with my family; my husband and my son.
Our last vacation was
November 2008, and
that was after my husband's
heart operation. I really enjoyed
it that vacation
. We went to Malacca. The day we left
day and warm
. We drove down from Kuala Lumpur at about 7:30 in the morning. We
there at about 9:00 o'clock.
most of our time sight seeing, taking photos, shopping and of course the most important thing..... eating
of local delicious delicacies.
This heart attack incident,
us to appreciate each other and GOD,
since as we are lucky to be able to
spend more time together.
What a great story. I am so glad that your husband is ok and that you were able to spend some quality time together. Malacca looks like a very beautiful place.
Looking at the grammar of the story, you write well, but you didn't use the past continuous in your story.
What I would like you to do now, is look at your story and try to insert or add some sentences and information using the past continuous.
Here is an example to get you started.
"We drove down from Kuala Lumpur at about 7:30 in the morning." Now...what could you add?
While my husband was driving I looked at the guide book to choose a place to eat lunch.
While we were waiting to arrive, we spoke about what we wanted to do that afternoon
While we were driving we had to stop 3 times to let my son go to the bathroom.
Does that make sense? I hope so. Give it a try and post your updated story as a comment below. :)
Have a great day Samantha.
All the best,
