  1. 1. Log In Sample Composition – Lift Breakdown(INCIDENT) My favourite television show "Chefs Apprentice" was about tostartwhen Mom shouted," Tim, could you please go down to the supermarketand buy a packet of flour for me? I need to bake some muffins for your AuntSusan." I groaned, but knew that I will be crossing swords with Mom if Icomplained. The next thing I knew, Mom thrust a five-dollar note into myhand. As I entered the lift, my neighbour, Melissa, was in it. She was heading tothe bookshop to get a novel by Tiffany Anne. We were engrossed in aconversation when the lights started flickering. The ventilation unit stoppedwhirring. Without warning, the lift gave a violent jerk before coming toan abrupt halt. Melissa and I were in a state of panic. My heart could not stoppalpitating as I broke into cold sweat. The silence was eerie as I pressed my earclose the door, hoping to hear sounds of activities outside. The air grewwarmer and stuffier by the minute. Melissa started punching at the alarmbutton frantically but nothing happened. The two of us gathered our strengthand tried to pry open the doors. We began sobbing uncontrollably as we feared for our lives. Then, wesoothed ourselves by humming happy tunes. Instantaneously, an idea struckmy mind. I fished out my mobile phone and tried to call my parents but failedbecause there was no signal. After what seemed like an eternity, the lift sprang to life and began todescend. Melissa and I cheered as we wiped away our tears. The door openedon the ground floor and we ran out, much to the surprise of the lifttechnicians. We thanked them profusely and headed to our destinations. When I returned home, I laid out all the cards on the table to Mom andshe could not believe what had happened. She embraced me and said," ThankGod you are safe!"
  2. 2. Sample Composition – Killer Litter(INCIDENT) Whenever I see the scar on my head, it reminds me of the incident thathappened a few years back. It was a usual day. My mum asked me to buysome groceries for her to cook as my cousin’s family which had been staying inUSA for a decade, was visiting us. I was thrilled when I heard my cousins coming. I quickly went out of thehouse after mum passed me some money to buy groceries. I bought the thingsthat mum wrote on the grocery list and dashed home so mom could whip upsome wonderful cuisines. Out of the blue, I felt that something coming right on me. I could not avoidwhen I saw a potted plant. My face turned ashen and pallid, my knees werewobbling and my eyes were dilated with fear. With my blurred vision, I saw a crowd, some of them were in uniform. Myhead was spinning and suddenly it became numb. It was a total darkness, I hada blackout. The stillness in me seemed to age. I heard a faint sweet voice calling out myname. It was my mother. I realized that I was in the Intensive Care Unit whenthere were many intravenous lines inserted into my body. My mum muttered asilent prayer for my safety when she saw me as a helpless and frail frame lyingon the bed for four days. When I opened my eyes, I met some familiar faces which I have not met formany years. Taking turns, my visiting relatives hugged me. We certainly had anunplanned reunion in the hospital. My mum told me that Lily, my neighbour who threw the potted plantsbecause she was angry with her younger sister. Lily was placed on probationfor killer-litter offence by the Juvenile Court for fifteen months duringwhich she would have to be at home between 9am to 6pm.
