Bandung, 25th August 2009

Dear Hanum,

Hi, how are things with you ? Hope everything is okay.
I’m writing to share something with you. Hope you don’t mind reading it. Thing have change  a lot around here. My father was fired from his office. You might not believe it, but it is true. His company went bankrupt and closed. From now on, we have to live carefully. My father has to sell our property before he can find a new job. Unfortunately, he cannot get one up untill now.
Hanum, something that makes me feel worse is my friends. They used to come and play with me. They used to ride my bike, play my CDs, even use my handphone. But now, when my family becomes poor, no one comes to me. They may have forgotten me. I think you are the only friend I have now.
I do hope we can meet soon. I really need to meet you.

Dear Jamal,

It’s nice to have your letter. I’m glad that your father has bought a new car. What colour is it? You wrote that he drives you to school everyday. Therefore, you don’t need to take city bus. We have a car too. It’s colour is silver.
I don’t go to school by car. Here, students go to school by subway. Therefore, subway stations are very crowded in the morning.
Do you know what a subway is? The subway has underground trains that travel around the city. We use subway as you use city buses. The buses travel on city streets, but subway travels in tunnels underneath the streets. They are powered by electricity.
How is your school going? Your English has improved a lot. I’m very happy to have you as friend. It’s very nice to write to you. However, it’s twelve o’clock. I have to go to bed. I will write again soon.
Send my warm regards to your parents and your sister, Jameela.

Best wishes,
