Soal 3 - Recount TextMy first recollection of my childhood is the day I toppled down the stairs when I was three years old. I cried for nearly an hour in spite of my parents’ attempts at comforting me. Finally, I quietened down when my mother gave me ice-cream and chocolate. Luckily, I was not hurt.
The time before I started going to school was full of happiness. I had good neighbors to play with from morning till evening. We played marbles and football or rode our tricycle happily. There were also other games to occupy our time.
At the age of five years, I had to attend kindergarten and this turned out to be quite an ordeal for me. To begin with, I felt very sad having to leave my house and go off each morning to be among st strangers. I cried and wanted my mother around, much to my teacher’s displeasure. As the day went by, however, I made friends easily in class and found company. I became happy again and actually looked forward to leaving the house each morning.
I still remember those days when I was learning to ride a bicycle. I fell and bruised myself several times, but i never gave up. Finally, I was able to join my friends going around the neighborhood on my bike.
Another fond memory is the end of year concert held at the kindergarten. I was chosen to play the main role in the play ‘Kancil dan Buaya’, and I became a celebrity that day, receiving lots of compliments for my performance.
I now realize what a wonderful childhood I have had and at times wish i could relive those days.
