An E-mail from Hannah

Hello, Alia! Let me introduce myself. My name is Hannah. I know your name from my friend, Caroline. She told me that you sent her an email telling her that you would like to have more pen pals from the US. I’d really like to be your E-pal. You sound really cool!

I guess I’d better tell you something about myself first. I’m 16 years old and I attend Thomas Edison High School here in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. I have two brothers and two half sisters and I’m the middle child. My father died a few years ago so my mother runs the house and the family business. My father was a barista.

I have lots of hobbies. I like music – mostly classical music and folk music – but I don’t play an instrument. I like sports, especially tennis and basketball. At school I’m in the basketball team and I spend most of my extra-curricular time playing basket ball. I’m into animals very much. My sister and I have three dogs. They need lots of attention as you can imagine. My favorite subjects at school are art and geography. I think I’d like to become a park ranger when I graduate, perhaps work for the National Parks Service.

I don’t like reading but I love drawing and painting. How about you? Please drop me a line, Alia! Can’t wait to hear from you!

 A letter from


    It was very
interesting to read your letter about yourself and your hometown. I would
really like to be your pen friend.

    I’m a
sixteen-year-old school student from Johor Bahru in Malaysia. Actually I 
attend an Islamic boarding school just outside the city but
my family live in Kuala Lumpur. My eldest sister is a medical doctor. My
younger brother is an elementary school student.

    My favorite
subjects are social sciences. I like history very much; it
helps me know more how different countries existed in the past. At school we
are supposed to use English at all times, so we have become quite fluent
although sometimes we slip back into Malay, which is our 
mother tongue.

    As for
I’m really into songs and music. My favorite boy band is One
Direction. My favorite Malay singer is, of course, Siti Nurhaliza. I
also like
 watching movies, especially comedies. The actor I
 best is Tom Cruise. 

    I’m really into books. I like reading novels and
short stories. I like some writers in English, like JK
Rowling, and Indonesian writers too, like Andrea Hirata and Ahmad Fuadi. My
dream, when I’m older, is to be a writer of science fiction books. 

    I’d really love
to come to Indonesia some day, especially to the magnificent Raja Ampat in
Papua. What about you, do you want to visit my country?
