Winnie Tan
After my brother and I had completed our exam, we felt happy and wanted to make a trip. So, we threw this suggestion to our parents. My father immediately agreed with it because he also wanted to relax himself. We decided to go to Tanjung Manis because that is the place that we can enjoy ourselves by swimming.
