We asked our readers to write an essay titled "My Day out with Shawn Mendes". Here is one of the entries. It has not been edited.

If I had a precious chance to spend a lovely day with Shawn, I would prepare a remarkable experience for him and for me. 

Before the journey, I would like to take him to a traditional Chinese restaurant located on the halfway of Tai Mo Shan. He can have a try on the delicious dim sum. I will suggest him the must-try item and also my favourite, Siu Mai! He may not love it at the first sight but I believe that he will love it at the first bite! 

Then, we will climb up the hill. Being suffocated between the tightly packed schedule and mountains of work, he must be over-stressed. At the top of Tai Mo Shan, what comes under our feet is the stunning skyline and the gorgeous scenery of Hong Kong, which surely can help him to relax. He can shout out loud at the top. Shout out his complaint and shout out his dream. 

Following the Maclehose Trail on Tai Mo Shan, our next destination is Tsuen Wan, a famous gourmet haven. I will buy everything he has never tried-- waffle, sticky pudding... and, of course, egg tart is a must!

What is more, I will go to a photography lab  called 'Snap!' with him, which is a local hit nowadays that cannot be found in other places. Taking lots of selfie with different customs and different backgrounds together, it definitely will be a great time for both of us. To me, these photos will be my whole-life treasure.

At night, I will invite him to go to my home. I will make a chocolate cake for him (the web said that it's his favourite). I hope he can play the guitar and sing 'Never Be Alone' in front of me. It's because this song makes me a fan of him and love him at first. 

At last, I will give Shawn a gift that I prepared for months, give him a hug that I want for years and tell him that he is my love for life.

Making memories, is what I want to do with Shawn in my dream. I make a wish that this will come true one day.
