You may have heard a lot because it’s true that girls share clothes, and sometimes even shoes. My best friend, Kelly, and I have done that countless times, which is not only economically wise but time-saving as well.
Kelly and I have grown up together since her house is just across the street from mine. She is like a sister from another mother, which is proved by our similarities in appearance, especially our height and weight. And we have taken full advantage of that. Since we have the same taste in clothes and are true shopaholics, we go shopping together every time our budgets can afford us. What a way to spend money! One time we came across an extremely elegant, classic, sexy, yet not too revealing little black sequin dress, we were both blown away. However, you get what you pay for. The dress came with exorbitant price tag which was far higher than either of us could afford. Still, we decided to bring it home by both us sharing a bill. It turned out even prettier when being put on a real person instead of a mannequin and we didn’t regret at all even though it pained us severely when paying for the dress at the store. And just like any other pieces of clothing, we take turn wearing the dress whenever either of us has parties to attend. Anytime we have girls’ night out together, we do rock-paper-scissors. Yes, it sounds childish but it works everytime.
Thanks to our habit of sharing closets, each of us can wear twice the number of pieces of clothes we own, which is outrageously convenient and money-saving. What else could I ask for other than having a best friend sharing the same size and the same mind.

1. Do people in your country prefer to share public transport or do they prefer to use private transport?
I reckon that people prefer public transport to private one since the majority of the population are using motorbike, which is highly individual. There are certain reasons for this reality. First of all, transport system is not exactly ideal for large vehicles like cars in order to carpool since the roads are relatively narrow. Secondly, public transportation is not of high quality which can be proven by just the look of the buses and bus stations. Other than that, motorbikes seem to be the most affordable means of transportation that anyone can use to commute from one place to another due to its convenience and mobility.
2. Do many people in your country share their home with others or do they mostly live alone?
I do believe most people are sharing their home with their families or friends rather living alone. It is not utterly surprising since our culture is all about family. Most young people live with their parents until they get married, apart from those who live away from home for work or studying. Although this practice has already been ingrained in some youngsters’ mind, many have started to move out from their childhood house to live independently somewhere near their workplace to have their own space and freedom.
3. Do you think there are many advantages when sharing your home with other people?
To some certain extent, I am convinced that sharing a place with others may benefit me in comparison with renting the whole place by myself. One of the biggest advantages is being able to share the rental fee in half or three, of course depending on the number of people I share with. Instead of bearing all the cost, now only have half of it to worry about. Besides, we can work out the chore or even cooking arrangement in order to share the workload. In some bad days that I am overloaded with work and can’t fulfill my housework duty, my roommate could help me and vice versa. How cool is that?
Overload (verb) to give someone too much work to do
Vice versa (phrase) the opposite of what has been said
4. Would you ever share your food with someone else?
I do this all the time with my friends and family. Actually, sharing food with others is kind of common in our country since we always have meal together where food is placed in the large bowls and dishes and we take turn taking food in our own bowl instead of having separate plates like European and American tradition. Therefore, it’s not a big deal.
Take turn (phrase) each of people does their share of something, one after the other
