A Special Friend
Susanna turned on her computer once she came home from school. She could not wait to check her email. She was expecting a letter from her friend, Jasmine. Jasmine was her special friend because she had never met her before, Jasmine stayed in Hong Kong.
Susanna and Jasmine got to know each other through the Internet. They had many similar interests like dancing, reading, and cycling. Susanna was very excited when she saw the blinking red light on her computer. She had an email from Jasmine. She scanned the letter. She was pleased to know that Jasmine was doing well in school. She was also going to celebrate her birthday soon.
After reading the email, Susanna had an idea. She decided to send Jasmine an electronic birthday card. She searched a few websites for birthday cards. At last, she found one. She also wrote a letter to Jasmine to tell her about her life in school. She asked Jasmine to teach her a few more Cantonese words. Jasmine was fluent in Cantonese and she had been teaching Susanna the dialect for a month.
Susanna could not wait for the day when her parents would let her visit Jasmine in Hong Kong. She hoped that one day; Jasmine would be able to visit Singapore as well.
