The following text is for questions 23 to 26.
The first time I took a ferry was when I took a ferry to cross from Butterworth to Penang Island. My family and I went to Penang for a holiday.
We arrived at the Ferry Terminal just as the sun was setting. My father paid the fare at one of the toll-booths and we were brought into a lane. We had to stop behind a row of cars to wait for the arrival of the next ferry.
Presently a light yellow ferry arrived. Cars and motorcycles sped out of it. Then, the green light came for us to board. My father carefully drove the car onto the lower deck of the ferry. It was an exciting new experience for me. I noticed the words "Pulau Undan" on the wall of the ferry.
As soon as the ferry was filled with cars and motorcycles on the lower deck, it left the terminal and proceeded towards the island. I stood at the front end of the ferry and watched the water whirl and twirl as the ferry cut through it. My sister and I climbed up the stairs to the upper deck. It was filled with passengers who either sat on the seats there or loitered around the area. Soon the short ride ended. We hurried back down to the lower deck and got into our car when we saw Penang Island loom closer and closer.
Finally, the ferry docked and my father followed the row of cars out of the ferry. The car bumped a bit on the uneven ramp but soon we were on Penang itself. My first experience of taking a ferry was over. (Taken from www.englishdaily626.com)
