My mobile phone is my best buddy. I have a lot of fun with it, especially when I use it to play games or chat with my family. It’s also very useful when I study and helps me check things for my homework.

My best friend is Venice. We always study for our exams together, even if we don’t go to the same school. Her grades are better than mine, and she always helps me with my homework or when I have trouble understanding something. I’m very grateful to have her as my friend.

Best Friends Forever #11: Someone who turns my frown upside down

My best friend is Yuki, who I’ve been friends with since primary school. She does very well in her exams, and many teachers and classmates like her. She is a loyal friend and will stick by me whether I’m feeling happy or sad. Once, when we were in Primary Six, one of my classmates stole my workbook and copied my answers. I wanted to tell the teacher but was very scared and started to cry because I didn’t know what to do. In the end, Yuki helped me tell the teacher. I was very grateful for what she did for me. Although we no longer go to the same school and haven’t seen each other for a long time, I’ll never forget the times we've shared.

My BFF is an adorable, fuzzy cat with big, black eyes and a small nose. It’s not a real cat though – just a stuffed toy. I’ve had it since I was three. I share my feelings with it when I’m feeling excited or sad, and I feel like it’s really listening to me. It keeps all my secrets and will never leave me. My cat would never say mean things to me or behind my back, like some fake friends might. I haven’t been able to meet someone who’d be a better friend than my cat, but I hope I will someday.
