Do you like that song, Perfect Day? I really like it. Have you ever thought about what you would do if you could have a perfect day? where would you go if you could go anywhere? If you could be with anyone, who would you be with? If you could do anything, what would you do? What would make your perfect day?

Well, I've thought about it, and I think it's quite difficult really, but I think, if I could go anywhere for my perfect day, I would go to a tropical island, somewhere like Vietnam or Indonesia, somewhere that's got beautiful sea and lovely tropical fish, and I would like to spend my day snorkelling over a coral reef and then; who would I spend my perfect day with? Well, I would spend it with my husband and then, in the evening, where would I have my dinner, where would we eat? I think, if I could eat anywhere, I would eat by the sea perhaps listening to some live music, and then, after dinner, would I go dancing? would I go to a night club? No, I don't think so. If I could do anything after dinner I would walk with my husband on the beach, next to the sea and look at the stars, ah, romantic, eh?

Well, what about you? Have you thought about your perfect day?

A perfect day for me is to enjoy a good movie in the cinema, then go out to dinner with my family, enjoy a walk in the park, eat ice cream and have a good dialogue about what happened to us during the day.

My perfect day would be getting up in a perfect beach like Hawaii. Then, I'd eat a big breakfast. I'd go to the Merrie Monarch Festival. In the evening, I'd go surfing. At night, if I were 18 I'd go to a hippie party.
