Sample Answer

When it comes to talking about the past, I am of the custom to talk about the year when I was 15 and in the last year of secondary school, as it is the time I enjoyed mostly in my life. 

At that time, my friends and I had a really hectic schedule to prepare for entering high school. It was really a nerve-racking period of time when we were up to our eyes in assignments and revision. However, as all of my class mates enjoyed each other’s company so much and were so close to each other, we tried to share happy moments with each other as much as possible, in parallel with finishing all of our tasks at school. Because we didn’t have much spare time, we managed to capture our best moments in break time. Instead of going on a trip together, we shared with others every tiny things in our daily life, which helped connect our souls. Though that time was hard to us all, as we had been under a lot of pressure to be able to be admitted by high-ranked high school, the friend among us helped all of us relieve stress, lift up our spirits and recharge our energy to make concerted efforts to get into our desired schools. At the time, friendship was really the most wonderful thing to me. 

Now, when we’re all grown-up and have to live a hectic life to make end meets, we still try to cement our relationship. Sometimes, we have a whale of a time in our reunions when we’re taking a trip down memory lanes about those good old days, when we were carefree and so close to each others. Those memories are the most beautiful things we have had together, which helps build up our long lasting friendship until now.
