Model Answer:
I try to avoid visiting crowded public places, unless I have an important reason for that, mainly because I don’t really like noises. But, apparently, some of my close friends didn’t really care about what I liked or didn’t like when they took me to a live musical concert about a few years ago.

Now, please don’t think that I don’t like music or music concert because I seldom miss a chance to see a music concert on television. Besides, I also watch different kinds of music concert videos by using resources on the internet. But, some of my good friends thought that it was time for me to change myself and attend a live music concert instead of just watching them on television and online.

Anyway, initially I thought that I would somehow be able to bypass the request of my friends on that occasion also like on previous occasions, but they seemed really persistent on that occasion. In fact, to get me motivated to visit with them, they even arranged the money to buy the concert ticket themselves for me instead of having me to pay for it. Besides, they also told me that they were going to play some of my all-time favourite music. So, I had no other choice but to go with them and enjoy the concert for the sake of friendship!

By the way, it was an open-air concert in a big stadium where thousands of music lovers were able to accommodate themselves, and I felt like I was lost in the ocean of crowd after arriving there.

And, after visiting that crowded music concert, initially, I felt happy because the music there was really nice. But, as more time passed, and as more and more fans came to the concert, I could hardly listen to the music anymore because of the deafening noises of the chorus music of the fans there. On top of that, I got a bit tired after keeping myself on my feet for a long time since there was hardly any space for sitting.
