1. Friends are like extended family.
2. Friends are paramount in our lives because with friends we can be anybody we want to be.
3. They are true stress busters.
4. With family members we might sometimes feel reluctant but with friends we are akin to an open book.
5. I have been blessed with some wonderful friends and some of the most cherished memories of my childhood are from the time I spent with my friends.
6. I often go out with my friends to places like amusement parks, movie theaters, shopping malls or restaurants.
7. Last weekend as well I went to Alpha shopping mall with my friends which is also one of our favorite places to hang out.
8. The mall opened only two months back and has already become a popular place among local residents to hang out.
9. The biggest advantage of the shopping mall is its central location which makes it easily accessible to all the people of the city.
10. But for me the main attraction is the options that it provides me.
11. Although I am not a brand conscious person but I don’t mind wearing branded clothes either.
12. I read in the newspaper that there was an off season sale running on all major brands in the mall so I convinced my friends to go and check it out.
13. All the major clothing brands have their outlets in this mall.
14. Every outlet we visited we could easily find some offers running which allowed us to make good purchases within our purchasing power.
15. We probably did not get the best of the lot because the sale was already into its third day but we got decent clothes at reasonable prices.
16. I gathered a nice collection of clothes, shoes and some accessories, all thanks to the sale in the shopping mall.
17. There is one more reason why we like this mall and that is its food court.
18. Every time we go there for shopping, we specially reserve extra half an hour for a visit to the food court.
19. We simply love the place for the options it has which we don’t normally find at local food joints.
20. We can choose from all the popular cuisines including Indian, Continental, Chinese, Mexican, Mughlai, Italian and many more.
21. This time we thought of trying Thai cuisine because none of us had either tasted it before.
22. So we ordered a decent looking Thai dish from the menu.
23. We did not know what to expect but fortunately it turned out to a delectable meal, and we savored every bite of it.
24. I find this place really refreshing and whenever I am a bit stressed I visit there with my friends.
