Dear Toni

I am in Form Six. I feel suffocated whenever I write articles. I feel depressed, as my English is not very good. I tried to improve but failed. What should I do? I'm afraid I'll fail all my exams - I'm an art student, but my language is letting me down in other areas.

Down in the dumps

Dear Nervy

Cheating taxi drivers hurt us all

Both residents and tourists will agree that Hong Kong has a highly efficient transport network, which contributes to the city's prosperity.

But I have been shocked by the behaviour of some unscrupulous taxi drivers. They overcharge tourists - a fare from Central to The Peak can cost as much as HK$150.

Dear Toni

My best friend has been acting really strange lately. Two weeks ago, we went to a party together, and I made friends with a bunch of new people. Ever since then, she's been acting up. I thought she'd get over it and be fine the next day, but things only kept getting worse.

Expand horizons by making pen-pals

Recently my brother received a letter from his pen-pal. Then I realised that I've never had a pen-pal.

I decided to check out a pen-pal club and eventually found a friend called Vanpo from South Africa. I sent him a letter and I'm waiting for his reply.

Pen pals close to fulfilling a 32-year wish - a hug

They have been close friends for 32 years, sharing hopes and fears as they studied, worked, got married and travelled the globe - but they have never met.

Hongkonger Rebecca Lee and American Gayle Woodruff were paired up as international pen pals through a United States children's television programme linked to a Hong Kong pen-pal service when they were both 12.

Friendship is about give and take

I have always believed that I am lucky. It's because I have many reliable friends.

I remember the moments when we laughed at silly things, studied together, embraced each other and cried.

Together we've shared many precious moments. We don't know what would happen tomorrow.

So, I should treasure every second I spend with my friends.
