So right now, he could easily dash to the nearest eatery to settle his hunger. The airport was so full of people and it was not easy to navigate.

Question 11 – 13
The town councilor, Miss Jane Ng, said:”Ben was a seasoned Saint John’s member since his secondary school days. Besides volunteering for community service, he had contributed to his community’s well-being. There was a fire incident last week at Block 356 where a tenant, Madam Wong was caught in a lift fire between floors. Ben not only rushed to the scene first time, he had cleverly used sands from a nearby renovating flat to quell the fire quickly. Hence Madam Wong had only a slight burnt on her forearms with the fire and smoke spreading wildly in the lift. Not only he can handle emergencies well, his colleagues had praised him as a humble person. For all his contributions, it was an honor for me to present Ben an award for his relentless effort.”

The onlookers clapped and some even threw in flowers to appreciate Jojo’s swiftness in elevating Aaron his pain and injury. Now Jojo was so much more comfortable in her own skin!
Question 18 – 20
Water is a wonderful substance. Not only can it be mixed with flavors, it helps us to digest our food and to keep our body running well. Besides delivering nutrients we digested to various parts of our body, water also helps in cleansing toxins out of our body. For health nuts, drinking water replenishes our bodily water content and helps fill up our stomach so we don’t feel hungry while dieting. Many people do not think much about drinking water as it is a natural response to thirst, especially on hot weather. However this is misleading, as we lose water every minute regardless of the weather. Drinking too much may not be a good thing, while less will dehydrate our body unhealthily. The most important is to keep our water intake to a standard minimum 8 glasses of water a day in a normal day.
