Kristy and her best friends Korey and Agnes.

If you asked me who my BFFs are, I would answer without hesitation – Korey and Agnes! We have been friends for more than 11 years. Our friendship will never fade.

We make desserts and go camping. We also go through all our ups and downs together. Even though we have different personalities, we get along very well.

I am so glad that I met Korey and Agnes. I hope we can create more wonderful memories and have an everlasting friendship.

My BFF Joan and I went to the same kindergarten. She has a lovely cat called Latte, and is a huge fan of kitties. She is very nice and helps me with my homework when I need her to. Thank you, Joan!

This summer, I went to her home a lot. This is because the coronavirus meant we couldn’t travel. Our two families used to travel together every summer holiday. We would play board games every night. We would always share hotpot and play badminton.

We are now in the same class in secondary school. I hope we’ll do our best in our studies and treasure our friendship every single day.

Chloe and Joan.

My BFF is Hayley Lai. She is very tall and wears a ponytail. I have known her for seven years, from Primary One to Secondary One.

We met on the school bus and became friends on our first day of school. We both love the racing game called Garena Speed Drifters, and we always play it together.

She is very helpful and funny. She cheers me up when I’m sad. She also tells me most of her secrets.

Best Friends Forever: Kind, caring and lots of fun

My best friend is Gigi. I met her in secondary school, and my first impression of her was that she was so beautiful and kind.

We have the same interests so we became best friends. For example, we like singing and dancing, and talking about our daily life and what happened at school.

Once, when we were studying for a midterm exam, we shared our revision notes. It showed how much we trust each other. I will never forget it.

My best friend is Bobo. We always play and do homework together. We are inseparable. We understand each other very well.

We don’t need to talk. It seems like we can read each other’s mind. I hope it remains this way.

She is a friendly and funny girl. If I get into trouble, she always helps me. There’s a saying that goes “A friend in need is a friend indeed”. In other words, the people that help you when you need them are really good friends. That’s Bobo!
