Dear Cousin Mimi,
          How wonderful to hear that you're planning to come to Kota Kinabalu for a visit! Of course you are most welcome to stay with me.

          You are coming at the right time indeed. The month of May is a festival period as Sabahans celebrate the Harvest Festival or Pesta Keamatan. The month-long celebration culminates in grand ceremony at the end on May. You will be just in time to witness it.

          I would also like to show you around Kota Kinabalu. We must take a drive up to the foothills of the majestic Mount Kinabalu. The Poring Hotspring is nearby and we can stop to take a dip in the water.

          I will also arrange for us to go on an island-hopping trip. There are three islands of the coast which are absolutely fabulous for snorkeling. I'm sure sure you will enjoy the clear blue water and the beautiful beaches.

          Do let me know if you would like other arrangements to be made. I need your flight details so that i can be at the airport to greet you. I can't wait to welcome you to the Land Below the Wind.

          Take care.

Your cousin.

SPEECH_Practise a Healthy Lifestyle.

          Good morning for all my teachers and school friends. I would like to express my gratitude for being given the opportunity to speak to all of you today. The topic that i would like to draw your attention to is 'Practice a Healthy Lifestyle'. As a students, we face many challenges and have to cope with such things as lessons, examinations, extra-curricular activities and social events. Many of us tend to ignore health in our aim to accomplish as much as possible within a short time.

          Firstly, to get a healthy lifestyle, we have to avoid smoking. I'm sure that all of us know that smoking is harm for our body. Then, why do we continue smoking? The reasons why we shouldn't smoke is that smoking effects our health. If we smoke, our physical condition will be negatively affected. Also, smoking produce lethal decease such as cancer and reduce the length and quality of our life.

          Second, as an ideal student we must eat right and take a good meal especially during breakfast. A lot of people go through the day without having breakfast. Many people believe that it is not necessary or they say that they don't have time for having breakfast. Our body and brain are not going to function well because we don't enough energy and strength. If we don't take good meal, we are going to have a lot of trouble succeeding.

          Third, as students we have to stay active. For example, we should go for jogging. This activity ensures people stay healthy. Jogging is fast becoming a regular exercise routine found in most neighbourhood. It increase our stamina and help us to keep fit and healthy. Jogging is also a fun activity that can give us great pleasure. We'll find that we are more attentive in class, perform better in sport and games and also feel more mentally alert and physically vibrate than before.

          Last, to practice a healthy lifestyle we have to manage our stress very well. If w are too stress, it would give an effect for our body. Our body also will be exhausted. So, we have to find a way to manage our stress. Students are the most people who have many challenges that can make them stress. We shouldn't be to emotional when studying because it will give us bad performance.

          In conclusion, healthy lifestyle is very important for all people in this world especially young students. If we don't care of our health, we will be in troubles. As students, we're responsible about our well-being. Thank you.
