There's no snow, no rain and no wind but this chilly cold has the power to cause my teeth to chatter. 

Wrapping myself in the mattress all the day, I really wish it could snow a little here, which is impossible in a tropical country. I wonder how it feels to go skiing and to make a snow man. I must love it a lot.

A piece of piano should be fitting in this situation.

Today, i'm feeling uneasy as i'm plotting something bad which I've got no choice but to do. The boundary between a good and a bad person is really vague. While striving to be better, we can still commit a "crime". But eventually, i believe things will come out the right way because the Kamar law has it all. No matter what it may take, I still believe this is the right thing i should do and definitely did.  I've learned to be happy with my decision because after all peacefulness is my goal.

It's no longer as easy as it used to be. I have grown up and this is exactly the way it is. New challenges but old worries keep popping up again and again. Graduation means seeking for a job. Graduation implicates earning responsibility.  Graduation will never allow me to be carefree as i used to be. Graduation wakes me up with an incomplete dream. Never before have i realized how lacking i am now and there's still so much needed to posses from qualities of a good job seeker to inside strength to carry me on in this competitive world. Although i keep talking to myself that it shouldn't be so hard and just be positive, I just can't get those fears off my mind. 

 I've  got to be strong, I know. But opportunities never come easy for me. Good candidates are abundant out there and where is the right place for me? haizzzz.

I'll pray to the god until I'm over with this daunting period

I have wondered how the place I was born has turned out to be. ..

Unlike most Vietnamese kids, I was born in Hong Kong. To be more precise, my parents used to be refugees immigrating illegally to Hong Kong. When I was four we returned to Vietnam and have settled here ever since.

Such a long time has elapsed and along with it, all my memories of this place have faded away but some vague images still pop up in my head here and again. Whenever I look back on those pictures taken approximately 20 years ago, I just can’t help recalling this small part of my childhood.

I still remember the big house called refugee camp where, as far as I can tell, more than thirty households lived together. Though it wasn’t as comfortable as a present normal student dormitory, it came as even more of a wonderful place for us kids. We were playing around all the time until it was time for meals or our parents forced us to sleep. From time to time, we did fight over trivial things, which often resulted in someone crying, and as things got worse, a childlike war between parents of two involved families.  However, all problems would be settled very quickly and a few hours later, the kids started other games as if nothing had ever happened.

What was the most ingrained in my mind was definitely the big yard which was about a 2 minute walk from the camp.  While other children of my age daren’t go to the yard on their own without parents’ accompany, I always walked there by myself as I was in the least afraid of strange people. Sometimes, my father took me there and had me look out for his slippers when he was engaged in football matches. It’s so ridiculous that back then I would mistake his games for men’s fighting and was so scared. To stir my thoughts from what I was watching, I used to raise questions about this seemingly limitless yard on my own. In fact, the yard was most of a mystery for me as I couldn’t answer what it would hold at the other end. As for a child of three years old, it was so wide that pooling all of her courage could not be enough to urge her to stick to the adventure. Once in a while I tried to overcome all the fears hampering my steps to go the distance but I still failed at the thought that I might be lost and never heard from.  Accordingly, the yard has been and forever will be a mystery to me.

Today I searched Google Earth and I can see with my eyes what the area I once was born looks like. The name Shatin is still around but the scenery must have changed a great deal. I could also see Prince of Wales hospital where my mother gave birth to both my younger sister and me. Suddenly, new questions puzzle me whether there is anything left untouched as it used to be or what it may have become after so many years. If only I can have a chance to go back to that place again to answer all my questions.

The hometown is always the place where my heart belongs to. Your essay reminds me of my own hometown, which is my paradise. Nice work!

Interesting and good writing.

If I may comment, instead of "which was about 2 minutes walking from the camp", it may be better to say "which was about a 2 minute walk from the camp".
