I’d like to talk about the interphone I borrowed from one of my friends in April. I was planning a self-driving trip to Sichuan Province then. There were seven people of us, so we planned to go there in two cars. I had one interphone in my car, so I thought that it would be much convenient to get hold of people in another car on the way if there was another interphone. So I went to my friend to ask him to lend me his interphone before I set off.
He was one of my good friends. We once travelled to Inner Magnolia to see the grassland together by car. It was also a self-driving trip. We used the interphones to talk to each other on the road. That was the first time I used the gear which impressed me a lot.
It turned out that the interphone was really a useful device in our self-driving trip on our way to Sichuan Province. Every time I needed to take a rest in the service areas of the express way, or remind another driver to drive carefully when the road was filled with puddles from the rain, I just picked it up, pressed the button and talked. It was more convenient than making a telephone call, and thus it was far more security when driving.

Thanks very much for your sharing, this is my answer ^^. Good day!
I’d like to talk about a lantern which I borrowed from my close friend in Moon festival when I was 10 years old. At that period, my parent often gave me and my siblings handcrafted lanterns mainly made from wooden sticks, colored papers and a candle. You know,in Vietnam, children participate in parades with lanterns of various forms and colors. However, I didn’t like that kind of lantern, I was impressed by the electric lantern of Son, my close friend. When I turned on the switch, it was lighted and rang a beautiful melody so I tried to borrow it from him and he accepted provided that I had to call him my king within 5 days. I couldn’t express my feeling, I was so excited and proud when I took it in parade, I could see the envy of my friends to me this. Because electric lanterns were very expensive. I had a good memory with that lantern and its owner. We’re best friends until now.
