My mother wakes up at 5 o’clock, prays and starts cooking. She wakes me up at 6.40am and I will take a very long time to get ready for school. Usually, I buy bread on the way to school, and during recess I eat my favourite food, nasi lemak. But my student care centre gives very plain and boring food every day. I hate the noodles.
