1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

An unsuccessful day out (1B Lawrence Lee)

On Saturday, my best friend and I decided to go for a barbecue in the countryside. We packed our bags, “Fruit, bread, coke, barbecue fork, meat…” We are checking our belongings. I asked my friend, “Hey! Why don’t we bring some rain clothes for us?” He replied, “The Observatory said tomorrow will be a sunny day! Don’t worry!” So, we didn’t pack our rain clothes.

The next day, we set off early at six o’ clock, and went to Sai Kung by MTR and minibus. Unfortunately, we missed the train and minibus and totally waited for half an hour. Finally, we went to Sai Kung. It was already noon. While we were walking along the little road to the barbecue pit and talking, the weather changed to cloudy. We didn’t notice the change.

When we arrived the barbecue pit, the weather became extremely bad but we still didn’t find it. The unluckiest event of the day happened - it started raining when we had just finished setting the charcoal and fire, “Oh! My God!” we cried. We quickly ran to the tuck shop next to the little road as quickly as we could. We were hungry so we ordered some food and drinks.

We waited and waited. The rain finally stopped so we paid for the food then quickly ran to the minibus station before it started raining again. My friend shouted, “I will never believe the weather report of the Observatory!” He kept on complaining so he didn’t see the road. Even worse, he fell down on the ground. He was fully hurt so I called the ambulance.

I thought that was not really bad because I had a free shuttle bus ride (the ambulance!), but at the second I had the thought, the ambulance crashed into a double-decker bus. Oh my!
