Top 10: What habits did you grow out of as you got older?

What's your favourite thing to do with your BFF?

My best friend is Jason. I met him when I was in Primary Four. We found that we have many things in common; for example, we both play the same mobile games. So we became friends quickly. We always do our homework and play together.

He is very kind because he always comforts me and accompanies me to the sick room.

We were very happy when we found out that we would be studying at the same secondary school.

Although we are not in the same class anymore, we are still best friends.

BFFs now and always

My best friend is Eric. We have been friends for more than five years. We have endless things to chat about.

Although he said that I am his inspiration, he is the one who always encourages me to push my boundaries.

He is a very good basketball player so I am trying to learn from him.

He planning to study in a top local school. I don’t want to be separated from him, which has motivated me to work harder. Now, we study together. I teach him chess and he teaches me English.

I hope we can go to the same university one day.

My best friend is Derek. He is very friendly and helpful. When I have a problem, he is always ready to lend a hand.

I admire him because he has great artistic sense; for example, he takes beautiful photos using his mobile phone. I hope he can teach me how to take good photos one day.

He also has a lot of energy and is very strong; he plays basketball and goes jogging almost every day.

He’s a great friend because I’m never bored when we’re together.

Thanks for having my back, friend

Yoyo is my best friend. The first time we met was at church when we were 11 years old. She is very energetic and always says the right thing at the right time. She gives me good advice, too.

We’ve been on some “adventures” together in the past. We’ve been to Taiwan and we’ve agreed to go on a trip together after we graduate from secondary school.

I hope we can make that promise come true!

My best friend is Vivian. She has long hair and wears glasses. I think she is really funny and very kind.

Her hobbies include listening to music and playing games on her phone, which are things I like, too.

We usually go shopping together, which is great.

She’s a very good student and a “teacher”. If I don’t understand my homework, she will explain it to me very carefully. Whenever I tell her my problems, she is always there to listen and comfort me.

I am very happy when we are together. I hope our friendship lasts forever.
