Model Answer:

When I am on a long journey, I usually carry a book or magazine with me so that I can read it from time to time in order to get rid of the boredom of a long journey. I did the same thing when I was travelling on a bus from my hometown to the capital city of my country about a few months ago.

It was actually a monthly magazine – a magazine on men’s lifestyle – which I was carrying with me on that occasion. But, even though I was carrying the magazine with me, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to reading it on that day, mainly because the bus staff was playing some nice songs and music from the old days, and these were the type of music and songs which I have always liked. So, I wanted to enjoy the music as long as I could. But, then, suddenly the music was stopped, apparently because they wanted to concentrate more on the road and its traffic.

Having seen no other better alternatives, I started to read the magazine, rather randomly, from page to page, in order to skim through the main contents or the points of the magazine. No doubt, there were some really interesting facts and information on men’s lifestyle in that magazine, which could actually improve the lives of men, but there were some vague or unsubstantiated contents as well which could easily confuse men like me, especially things like how often men should cry to let their emotion out, or how men should sleep on their beds to keep their bone structure strong.

But, all in all, it was a good magazine to keep me busy for a good couple of hours, mainly because it offered me some unique insights into men’s health and lifestyles which I otherwise was not much familiar with before. I also felt like the magazine was well-written and well-organized, except for a few inconsistencies here and there, to draw and keep the attention of all kinds of men, regardless of their age, profession and cultural backgrounds.
