How do you feel when your parents are not at home with you? Here is what Daniel and Laura said.
Well, I’ve had the experience of having to take care of my younger brother by myself. Sometimes it’s scary, but there are a lot of things making being at home alone fun. My favorite thing to do is to watch television. It is like having another person to talk to. And if my brother and I are arguing, we make a deal (达成协议). We play his game first, then he has to play mine, and both of us get what we want. When I get a little scared, I just remember that there is always someone to call on the phone. I can call my parents and I have my next door neighbors, too.
When I started staying at home alone, I found that keeping the television or the radio on helped to make me feel easy. I also always had the phone numbers of my parents and the neighbors. When babysitting my younger brothers, I would play games with them, and leave more lights on than usual. I would also keep the phone number of the hospital nearby.

I live in a large neighborhood. I have lived here since I was born. I have a lot of neighbors. My favorite neighbor is Mr Chan. He is 85 years old. I enjoy visiting Mr Chan because he often tells me exciting stories about Hong Kong in the past. He also shows me old photos. Yesterday, I visited Mr Chan after school. I asked him when and why he moved here. This is what he told me:
"I have lived in the neighborhood since 1993. Before I moved here, I lived in a small village called Pak Mong on Lantau Island. There were many people living in the village when I was young. Now, there are only a few families left. Most families moved to the city for work. I left the village in 1993, when my son moved to the city. Pak Mong is an old village. There are watchtowers (瞭望塔) around the village. In the old days, soldiers used to stand in the watchtowers and keep guard (站岗). Here is a photo of my school. I went to that school a very long time ago. The school has been closed since 1985.
Now, I enjoy going to the Kowloon Walled City Park, because it makes me think of my old village. I have visited the park three times since 2004. Would you and your family members like to go to the park with me next week?"
