    Q : Describe a house or an apartment you have lived in and which you liked
    A : When I think of the most favorite place that comes to mind is my old family’s residential house . I started living there since I was born . In my opinion , it is my ” sweet home ” . It’s where my parents settled down . It looked small from outside but well-furnished in the inside . There was a backyard and few trees as well . It’s located in the downtown area of Taipel . It’s close enough to shopping center and food markets . However , It’s a little noisy and unsafe . It’s really convenient for going to and fro for school . I used to meander down to the nearby park with my two sisters . I had many beautiful childhood memories that are totally close to my heart . It is our home !
