0:24 Oh! This was the best vacation I’ve ever had in my life!
0:27 Wow! Where did you go?
0:30 We went to the Bahamas. It’s such an amazing place.
0:33 Really? Did you go with your parents?
0:37 Of course not! I went with my cousins. We had a blast!
0:40 I can imagine that. Did you take any pictures?
0:45 Yes. I’ll be uploading them to Facebook today. You can check them out.
0:49 That’d be great!
0:57 Why is all this work still pending?
1:01 What do you mean?
1:02 You promised to complete all the assignments during the holidays! What did you do in the holidays then, if not this?
1:09 Well, I didn’t have enough time to work on the assignments. My brother had an accident and I had to be with him at the hospital.
1:17 Alright, but, you’d better complete them by the weekend. If you miss the deadline you won’t get good grades.
1:29 How were your holidays?
1:31 Totally amazing! I needed that break.
1:34 Where did you go?
1:36 We took a boat trip to Koh Samui.
1:39 Koh Samui is a really peaceful place. It must’ve been quite relaxing.
1:44 Oh, yeah! After all the hectic schedules and tough life, it’s good to have a peaceful vacation. All I got was blue sea and clear sky!
1:53 I need a break myself. Going to apply for a 7-day leave today. Let’s see if the boss approves it.
2:01 I hope he does. You’ve worked very hard on your last project.
2:11 Hey Jerry! Glad to see you’re back. How were the hols?
2:15 Don’t ask, Brandy! I’ve had better holidays.
2:18 Why? What happened?
2:20 It was a series of disasters. Seriously.
2:24 Really, Jerry?
2:26 Yep. My flight got delayed 7 hours. Then the taxi to the hotel broke down.
2:32 Goodness!
2:34 The hotel was terrible. The food was awful.
2:38 I’m sorry to hear that, Jerry. It all sounds so bad!
2:42 But that’s not all, Brandy. I got sick from the bad food and couldn’t go out of the hotel room for 3 days.
2:49 Gosh, Jerry! You’ve had the most awful vacation ever!
2:53 I know, Brandy. It was hell.
