and explain why the meal was so enjoyable.
[Instruction: You will have to talk about the topic for one to two minutes. You have one minute to think about what you are going to say. You can make some notes to help you if you wish.]
For the last couple of years, I have been on some diet control to lose some of my unhealthy weight, which means that I don’t really get to enjoy my meal these days the way I would have preferred. But, I had to make an exception to this eating habit the last time when I was forced to attend the 12th wedding anniversary of my beloved cousin.
I already knew very well in advance that there was no way I could escape the wedding anniversary because this beloved cousin of mine was very close to me. He treats me just like his own younger brother – a younger brother he doesn’t have – so saying ‘no” to his wedding anniversary would put both of us in a rather awkward situation. So, in the end, I had no other option but to attend the special occasion, which many well-wishers of my elder cousin attended. Included in the list of those well-wishers and guests were pretty much all the family members of my grandparents’ extended family, my cousin’s friends, and their families, as well as some of his colleagues.
So, it was a lively and friendly atmosphere with all those guests, trying to enjoy a special meal in honor of my cousin and his wife. Everybody ate, all they could, as they were served some delicious foods like rice, bread, mutton stew, grilled chicken, French fries, meatballs, and spring rolls, among many other items. Later on, soft drinks and some great desserts were also added to the food menu. Needless to say, I ate and enjoyed all those delicious foods by completely forgetting about my diet control!
The meal was so enjoyable primarily because it was in a friendly, happy, and spontaneous atmosphere where everybody was very much attuned to the spirit and appeal of that special occasion. Besides, the foods served there, were also prepared in a very healthy and appetizing manner.
