Act of mischief


  • Terror gripped his whole being as the bullies approached him with their signature roguish smirks.
  • On hearing the thundering footsteps of approaching menace, the poor boy broke into a brisk walk.
  • The notorious bullies cornered the poor boy at a secluded spot.
  • The threatening glares of the bully caused the girl to break out in cold sweat. 
  • The discipline master unleashed a terse lecture at the bullies' obnoxious behavior. 
  • With arms crossed in front of his barrel chest, the man demanded in a nasal whine that belied his built.
  • My heartbeat quickened as I stepped foot in the deserted school building, where the notorious boys are waiting for me.
  • The obnoxious bullies snickered rambunctiously as they leered at the poor boy who fell victim to their mischief. 
  • Traces of the misdemeanor were evidently visible in the classroom walls that were filled with unsightly graffiti. 
  • The discipline master interrogated the class succinctly in a grave tone but none of the culprits owned up, 
  • The two boys were wielding the brushes like swords, slashing them against the originally white-washed wall.
  • Throwing all caution to the wind, the boy started drawing haphazardly across the walls.
  • The mischievous kids began vandalizing the seats on the bus haughtily with penknives.

To whoever that is interested to know..

I wrote this post to clear up some questions and point out some of my thoughts. I created this blog when I was in Primary 6 ( 12 years old ) because I really adored writing back then and I thought I might be able to help some people who are looking for phrases in their essays. I did not expect so many people to actually find this blog helpful and I was ' overwhelmed ' by the amount of views I have gotten. For that I'm really thankful and I'm glad that I'm able to help many of you.

One thing I want to point out is that these phrases are not perfect. I compiled them from various notes(which was actually given to me by my primary school teacher), newspapers, magazines and books. So I apologise if some of the phrases are not as descriptive and useful to you. I also apologise for any grammatical errors or typos in my posts. I'm not an expert at writing essays, in fact, most of my posts are posted long ago when I was only 12, so I'm sorry if my essays/phrases are not up to standard. I appreciate constructive feedbacks and comments, but I'm extremely put off by those who commented rude things in my blog. I'm not a teacher, I'm just a student, I make mistakes too. Nevertheless, I'm thankful to those who appreciated what I posted. You guys make my day :)

Also, there is another thing I have to apologise for, which is my lack of posts. I know that I have not posted any new phrases in a very long time and I'm very sorry. I know that many of you need phrases to aid you in your essays and exams, and I promised before that I will post more, but I did not. That is my fault, and I hope that that you will forgive me for that. I'm taking my National exams this year ( O levels ) and the stress is getting to me. I know that might sound like an excuse but I really am very busy and I barely have time to browse the web and indulge in my own hobbies. So what I have to say is that I probably wouldn't update as much as I should have, until olevels end, which is in....November. I will still try to insert a few phrases here and then, but please don't expect too much from me.

Alright, this is the end of what I have to say. I hope that this blog  benefited all of you in some ways and I wish all of you good luck in whatever exams or tests that you're taking :)

Crime ( theft, burglar, robbery etc. )


  • The robbers brandished their weapons and disfigured he entire luxurious interior of the jewellery shop. 
  • With a deadly glint in his eye, he motioned the victims to keep quiet.
  • The suspicious looking man drew a menacing knife from under his cloak, threatening his startled victim.
  • The entire bank fell into a nerve-wrecking silence after the robber fired a series of shots with his gun. 
  • Bullet whizzed over our heads. 
  • Informations tumbled out of our mouth incoherently as we reported the crime to the police. 

  • The police were in hot pursuit of the fleeing robber. In his panic, the robber ran helter-skelter as he headed to the nearest exit. This proved to be a costly mistake for him as the police officers gave chase like a group of Olympic athletes. In no time, they had caught up with him and immediately cornered him to one side. 
  • The burglar sensed that he was not alone. He spun around and saw me. He hurriedly put down the vase and grabbed a nearby baseball bat, lunging at me with it. Fortunately, I managed to dodge the attack. I let my heavy haversack which I was carrying off my shoulders onto my hands I swung it with all my might and slammed it into the burglar's stomach. He staggered backwards and collapsed with a loud "thud" in a heap on the floor. 
  • Out of the blue, I noticed a burly, suspicious stranger pacing about in  remote corner of the shop. At first, I assumed that he was a little weird so I did not pay much attention to him, not until a gleaming sharp knife appeared in his firm hand. I gasped. To my horror, he slowly advanced towards me, as if he might attempt to launch his attack at any moment I clutched my chest as a surge of intense fear engulfed me 
  • Two masked robbers, armed with daggers, entered the jewellery shop stealthily in the middle of the night. Never did they expect that the police had already surrounded the building. They smashed the glass displays and stuffed the glittering jewellery into a bag Just as they were about to make their escape, the whole place was swarmed with policemen. Beads of perspiration trickled down their foreheads as the panic-stricken robbers fled.
  • Bile rose in the back of my throat as the robber held me at knife point. My heart thumped furiously against my ribs and a loud buzzing sound vibrated in my eardrums. The masked robber smiled with amusement at my apparent fear. 
  • The two men wrestled and rolled on the floor engaged in a precarious struggle. The valiant passer-by held the robber's hand in a vice-like grip, preventing him from using the knife. After some twisting, he managed to unarm the robber. 
  • As I approached my apartment, I heard sounds around the corner of my neighbour's apartment. I proceeded slowly and quietly towards the their apartment, and was surprised to see the main door ajar. Wild thoughts raced through my mind. I gingerly swung open the door and saw that the living room was in disarray. Drawers were ransacked, furnitures were toppled over. What confirmed my suspicion was the sinister looking stranger standing in the middle of the room.
