    On Sunday I and my friend went to school for extracurricular scout, but because we were lazy to go to school, eventually we both went for a walk to the mall.
    As we waited for our car ride, we were so upset that we were waiting for a car that did not come, we wait for the car finally came, but it was pretty crowded in the carpassengers, we also got to sit only 1 bench seat.
    When we got to the mall we were waiting for our friend who wanted to take a walk with us. After a long wait finally we both had our friends come. Our three areas within the mallto buy ice cream, pop corn and we were playing a game that is in the mall.
    Today was already the afternoon the three of us will go home, but before we were bothgiven a gift from one of our friends, we both diberu alarm clock and the clock is still I keep to this day.
    That trip with my most enjoyable and I can not forget until now.
