Example of Personal Recount

Sobat Pintar, berikut adalah contoh dari Personal Recount:

On Saturday night, we went to the Town Hall. It was the last day of the year and a large crowd of people had gathered under the Town Hall clock. It would strike twelve in twenty minutes’ time. Fifteen minutes passed and then, at five to twelve, the clock stopped. The big minute hand did not move. We waited and waited, but nothing happened. Suddenly someone shouted,”It’s two minutes past twelve! The clock has stopped!”

I looked at my watch. It was true. The big clock refused to welcome the New Year. At that moment, everybody began to laugh and sing.

 

Example of Personal Recount

One of my favourite things in Junior High School was camping.

Once a mount my school held a routine extracurricular that was camping at some mountain or camping field in my town. Usually the event was at first Saturday night in a month.

One day at the camping time, we all gathered at the school first before we went together at the camping area.

We were grouped in teams and each team has its own tent. We went to the camping area by bus.

At the afternoon around 4 pm we had already been there. We built our own tent before we continue the activities.

After building the tent, bathing, and having a break, we start the rundown of the activities.

One thing I love most was the activity of Jerit Malam . It was held at 10 pm until 1 am in the morning.

We all, every team, were scattered into the jungle to find the letters in a bottle. The camping committees had prepared something to frighten us by wearing ghost or zombie costume and chased after us.

Anyway, I was never afraid of that but I was so happy seeing some of my friends screaming and running. I laughed loudly at that event because I think both of the ghost and the victims were totally funny.

The ghost or the zombie never frightened us who were not afraid, but they will run after them who were too afraid.
