I have got an unforgettable experience last Lebaran Day. My family and I went to my mother’s hometown to celebrate “Idul Fitri”. We went by aeroplane. At the airport, my family and I had to walk through the metal detector. When I got the turn to walk through it, suddenly the alarm beeped. The woman who worked as the airport security said, “Come here, you need to get your belt off”. I took my belt off, but the alarm still beeped. The security asked me to take my wallet from my pocket. I did what she ordered. Still alarm beeped.

Text 3 (for questions 7 to 9)

Last holiday, I was in Mexico City with my Dad. It was a fascinating place and the people were friendly. The most amazing thing happened to me when I was looking for the Paseo de la Reforma. It is a street with beautiful trees, plants and statues. I was nearly lost and studying my map when I saw a man with colourful and unusual clothes in front of the cathedral. So I asked him, “Can you tell me where the Paseo de la Reforma is?” he smiled and answered, “It is only two blocks away from here.”
I thought I took the wrong street because I didn’t find the Paseo de la Reforma. Just when I was thinking about going back to my hotel, the man appeared again and showed me the way. As I was walking down the street, I saw the statue of Cuauhtemoc, the last Aztec leader. I was going to take the photo of it when I realized something unusual. The statue looked exactly like the man I saw in front of the cathedral! He was wearing the same clothes. Even his grin was similar.
