Sample Answer

Here is the sample for “Describe Something You Did That Was New or Exciting” topic

In all seriousness, between school and the office where I am working as an intern, I barely have time for entertainment. When I do, however, I take it seriously. Once or twice, I manage to get out of the city and indulged myself in secluded areas where Internet service and its distracting minions like social media and advertising emails cease to exist. My latest sweet escape was my trip to Binh Ba island last summer.

Binh Ba was one of the four deserted, yet beautiful islands located in Khanh Hoa province, Vietnam due to little exposure to tourism. This, however, would change drastically within the next few years since Binh Ba had been drawing lots of attention thanks to positive feedback from those who had wandered there. I went to Binh Ba alone just to take a break from the fast-paced city life and to have time to contemplate myself, which I rarely did with people around. It had been an intriguing 2-day journey full of surprises. That was the first time I traveled alone, first time riding on a speedboat, first time scuba diving and first time having dinner with a life jacket on my back and crystal clear water as my dining room. Additionally, seafood here was a bomb which came in different kinds and varieties. People I met during my stay at a villager’s house were ultra-friendly and helpful, both locals and visitors whom shared their stories as though you were their long-lost friend stopping by to catch up. And there was nothing better than enjoying great company over a nice meal and bonfire.

Binh Ba left an unforgettable impression on me where I learnt to appreciate precious moments with those I cared about and be grateful for whatever life had to offer. Life is tough but it would be lifeless without it toughness.
