In the holidays I went to the movies with my friends Ali, Moshtaba and Hossain. I went to Moshtaba’s house then from there we all went to the Manukau Movie cinema.

We got there and got ourselves tickets for the movie Everest. When we got the tickets it wasn't time for the movie so we decided to do some challenges. One of the challenge was talking in our own language to a random person. We got sushi, ice cream and drinks. Finally the movie started then we went to watch the movie the person got our tickets said we were not allowed to take our sushi in the movies we were only allowed to take our drink and ice cream. We ate our sushi fast and then went inside. We were lucky that the movie didn't start. My favorite part of the movie was when the characters got to the top of Mt Everest. The movie was really cool and and sad because people

Then after the movie we took a bus ride home. When we were waiting for the bus we went shopping for lollies.
