Last month my family and I moved to a new house. We moved because our old house was far from my father’s office and located in a crowded neighborhood.
Our new house is nicer and bigger than the old one. There are several rooms to work in, like a spacious living room, three bedrooms, a dining room and a modern kitchen which I like the most. There is also backyard where my father built a gazebo.
The house is located in a good neighborhood. The people are friendly, kind and helpful. Though we’ve only stayed here for a while, we know all our neighbors. The most important thing is not noisy with vehicles’horns and engines. The air still fresh.
Furthermore, there also a shopping center just down the street with a mini market, quite good restaurants and stores. My mother usually shops there every weekend.
