Sample answer

Over the years I have garnered a long wish list consisting of a variety of enticing objects that have captured my attention. Ranging from collectible items and books to cars and motorcycles. It is a quite common phenomenon and I am sure to be ecstatic whenever I acquire any of these things.

There was this one time when I came to know about a new watch on the market. The watch had a lot of modern and rare features such as a barometer, a compass, and an altimeter. Made of tough materials, it also offered solar charging along with world time facility as well. I wanted it because I like going on trekking trips and taking walks in forest areas, and the features in this watch would help me a lot during such expeditions. Consequently, I looked around for it and I knew that I wanted it as soon as I set my eyes on it. So much so, that I printed out a picture and pasted it on my bedroom wall and in the meanwhile also started saving for it. One day my mother told me that my uncle was coming over to visit us in the upcoming month. I was ecstatic as he always came bearing gifts and adored me a lot. The time came and my uncle arrived at our home. He unpacked his bag and called me over, handing me a package.

Surely, I was surprised and tore it up to look inside. There it was, the watch of my dreams, packed neatly in the brand packaging. I really was very delighted upon receiving this watch as I like wearing watches and did not have one back then. I was very happy and I hugged my uncle while thanking him profusely.
