Topic: Describe a favorite part of your city or home that you often visit/ Describe a place where you relaxed
In this hectic life, it is undeniable to get stress from different situations. Therefore, we all need a place of rest and relaxation where we can temporarily get away from all problems. Everyone needs a place to hide away. For me, that is the kitchen.
I love baking. When I cook, I find myself in another world where I am able to mix all ingredients together and create new dishes. Therefore, there are many baking stuff and machines arranged nicely in my kitchen. I choose blue and white for the wall because those colors help me to unwind. I am pleased to see the happiness on my family members when I enjoy my foods. It also becomes a very social place where everyone in the house gather together in kitchen to have a small conversation and joke around.
Kitchen, for me, represents a place of spiritual meaning. My mom always encourages me to cook because it is believed that the warm from the kitchen will warm up the house and everyone feel happy.
