My favourite restaurant
There are many restaurants I havebeen to but my favourite one is McDonalds. We often go on weekends and holidays as a treat. The food there is delicious and I love the cheesy burgers and French fries. The ice-cream is very yummy too. I sometimes ask my father to buy me a Happy Meal because of the free toy. The toys are always cute and interesting.

McDonalds always has nice songs so you can eat and listen to music at the same time. However the best thing about is the play area! I often finish eating quickly and then run off to play. The play area has colourful slides and a bouncy castle. I always climb right to the top and slide down to the bottom.
My favourite food at McDonalds is the chocolate sundae. Yum!

I sometimes get a free balloon and a cardboard crown too. I love visiting McDonalds.

A Mother’s Love
Your mother loves you more than anything or anyone else in the world.
She might scold you but that’s only because she loves you! A child is precious to a mother, more precious than blue diamonds or red rubies.
I’ll tell you a story shall I? Once upon a time, a baby boy was born to a mother whose husband had died two weeks before the birth of the son. The baby’s name was David. He was born without an eye. The mother gave one of her eyes to David as she could not stand to see her child grow up in pain. As time passed David got a good education and got married. He didn’t care for his mother so she starved to death. Two days before her death, she wrote to her son explaining how she had sacrificed herself for David. When David received the letter two weeks had passed. Only then did David realise the importance of his mother.
This story explains how a mother would sacrifice herself for her child. So, let’s make Mother’s Day every day from now on shall we?

My Doll
My doll is pretty pink
I call her Twink
Her eyes are blue and lovely too
Hair is straight and cap is blue.

She blinks her eyes
And plays with me
I’m sorry she can’t walk
Not a word she can talk.

She can only cry and cry
Can’t understand why and why
If she can sing and dance
and play
I will join her every day.

I dreamt a tiny fairy doll
Oh! How nice she’s my doll
When I’m sick I sleep with her
Twink is like my lovely mother.

My neighbour
I live in Katubedda. Mr. and Mrs.
Perera are our neighbours. They are very nice people. Charithma their daughter is my best friend. We go to the same classes. She is of the same age as me and we spend a lot of time together.

Mr. Perera is a lawyer and his wife is a teacher. They are respected by all in the neighbourhood. They live a very simple life. They are kind people who are always ready to help others.

Whenever I am alone at home, Mrs. Perera looks after me. On my last birthday, she baked me a delicious cake. Mr. Perera and my father go together for morning walks. We also go out for holidays together. They are always fun to be with. My mother and Mrs. Perera go to the market together. At times they take me and Charithma along.  They have a beautiful garden.

Mrs. Perera loves gardening.
There are different kinds of flowers in their garden. I love to walk and play with Charithma on the soft grass.
A good neighbour is a blessing. I love my neighbours as they are with us in moments of joy and sorrow.

Teachers’ Day
As we all know our teachers play a great and most important role in our lives. They help us to improve our knowledge, skill level, confidence as well as they shape us in the right shape to get success. So we too have some responsibilities towards our loyal teachers. We all as obedient students need to heartily welcome and thank them for their selfless service all through life as well as shaping the life of various students. Teachers’ Day, which is celebrated once a year on October 5 is a great chance to spend a day for them and say thank you.

Teachers are like real potters who not only give our life a shape, but also enable us to be lit like a lamp forever, after dispelling darkness from all across the world. We should take a pledge to heartily respect and honour our teachers in our daily lives as without a good teacher we all are incomplete in this world.

Colombo International Book Fair
This is one of my favourite places to visit throughout the whole year. It is full of books. You can hear pages being flipped and see how people eagerly select books. Yes, this place is none other than the Book Fair. It is held annually at the BMICH and wherever you go, you can see plenty of bookstalls in the BMICH premises. This is a must-visit place for people who love books, or bookworms who love to read wherever they go.

“The book is a treasure which can be carried in anybody’s hand.” These words were told by Mr. Martin Wickramasinghe. In fact, they are true. A book of course, is a source of knowledge, so it can be considered a treasure. So we all can go treasure hunting in the book fair!
“Read, read, read. Read everything.” These words were printed on a bookmark provided by the
M. D. Gunasena Publishers. So, read everything, and visit the book fair every September. It is a really great place. So my advice to you is to go, buy books from the book fair and read, and consider books as cheap but extremely valuable treasures.

If I have wings
If I have wings I can fly up in the sky. I can fly from one flower to another flower.
I can suck nectar from beautiful flowers. I can sleep on a bed of flowers. I can visit so many places. I can make a beautiful house and decorate it with flowers. I can be a beautiful fairy. I can make cakes with icing flowers. I can show kindness to animals. I can go on the rainbow. I can take a magic wand and fly everywhere.
I can wear a beautiful flower band in my hair. I can wear a pair of pink shoes and a beautiful frock. I wish I had wings.

My pet
My pet is a cat. Its name is Kitty. It is black and brown in colour. It plays with me. I use a thread tied to a shopping bag and when I move it she tries to catch it. It thinks that it is a snake. So it bites and tries to remove it from the thread.
It loves to eat fish and rice.
It gives birth to kittens. When the kittens start to walk, I play with them too. It follows me wherever I go. It can climb trees and walls. It protects the house from snakes and mice. It makes us happy while playing. It is the best pet I have ever got.
