I don't like it much but boys like it. the only boy that doesn't like it is my best friend Poly and he names himself Poly because he likes the word Police and he names me EmBơ because he also like the words, so he names me like that and then never leave me because he always plays with me.

My most special present is my electronic clock. It is the most special present to me. My clock is very high-class. That clock also have emotion. Because of its high-class, it is a little difficult for the person that just use it for the first time. And it is also a little complicated to set a timer on this alarm clock. But it is cute and high-class so i love it.
