Model Answer 1:
We buy many essential products in our daily lives to make our lives a bit more comfortable except, of course, not all of those products leave any lasting impression on us in the same way.  But, today, I would like to talk about one such product that actually made me feel happy.

Well, the product, I want to talk about is a swivel chair – an expensive swivel chair that is. Now, before I go to brag about my “choice of an expensive chair”, I must admit that I am more of a “cheap” customer.  In other words, I like to buy “cheap” things, obviously because I like to save as much money as possible whenever making a purchase.  So, despite me being a “cheap” customer, why did I go for an expensive chair?  

Well, the answer is that this 2 feet tall and golden brown “beauty” was in the “sale”.  There was another reason for which I decided to buy this shiny-looking chair.  It was made out of very highly-calibrated stainless steel and comfortable foam. And I thought that it would complement my study desk (actually a gift from my elder sister to commemorate my entrance to the university) perfectly well.  In fact, I would even venture to say that “it was a match that was made in heaven” because the contrasting colour of those two pieces of beautiful and elegant-looking furniture was simply mind-blowing, to say the least.  By the way, this classy-looking chair was not only beautiful but also was built very strongly.  To tell how it really was, I used it for a good 3/4 years time, and yet it didn’t show any sign of wearing or tearing.

Anyway, I was really very happy after buying this swivel chair, mainly because it felt very comfortable, no matter how long I was sitting on it.  Besides, the elegant design and look of that chair complemented the other furniture at our home, no matter where it was sitting on.  All in all, it was a great purchase.


Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
I'd like to talk about a product that I bought and felt really happy about. It was a DSLR camera that I purchased a few years ago, and here I'd talk about this.

What product it was:
The camera was a Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera. I had been wanting to upgrade my camera for a while as I was interested in photography and wanted to improve my skills. After doing some research, I decided to buy this camera as it had some great features and was within my budget.

Why you bought it:
As I mentioned earlier, I was interested in photography and wanted to improve my skills. I had been using a basic point-and-shoot camera for a while and was finding it limiting in terms of the kind of photos I could take. I wanted a camera that would give me more control over things like shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Additionally, I wanted a camera that could capture high-quality images and videos.

How long you have used it:
I have been using the camera for around three years now. I have taken it with me on trips and used it to capture some really amazing moments. I've also used it to take photos of family and friends, as well as for some freelance photography work.

And explain why you were happy about it:
I was really happy about the camera because it has helped me to improve my photography skills significantly. I've learned a lot about things like composition, lighting, and editing, and have been able to take some really stunning photos. Additionally, the camera has given me a lot of creative freedom, which has been rewarding. Moreover, the camera has been very reliable and durable. I've taken it on some pretty rough trips, and it has held up really well.
