"My Basketball Experience"

When i was in junior high school, I really loved basketball. Every Saturday afternoon I practised in school field with my team and my coach. They were strong and smart players.  My coach, Mr Sentana was a kind person. But, while he was coaching us, he was very discipline. He would grounded anyone who came late and not obeyed the team's rules.

With Mr. Sentana, our team won many tournaments in many big cities. Our team named after our school, 67 Team [from SMP 67] and we had many fans too. Now, I still love basketball and have a team too. But, my parents warn me to pay attention more to study, baskettbal just for hobby.

"My Bad Experience"

I had a bad experience when i did shopping because of the shop assistant's fault. However, the security officer of the shop really embarrased me. He accused me of stealing a pair of blue jeans.

That was a Sunday afternoon. I went to a fashion shop with friends. I chose a pair of blue jeans to buy and paid for them at the cashier. Unfortunately, the shop assistant was carelless. She forgot to take the censor clip on the blue jeans. So, when i left the shop, the detector beeped. The security officer shouted at me, "Hey, you ! Stop !". Then, he took me to the manager's room

After examining, the security officer and the manager realized that it was not my fault. They said they were very sorry about what had happened. Finally, the manager asked me to take one piece of clothing for free.
