Dear Ratih,
How are you today? I hope you’re always fine
Ratih, I want to tell you about my new doll. I usually call it Clara. It’s my first Barbie doll. It’s so beautiful and elegant. It has blonde hair and red lips. It wears a red dress, too. Clara is a birthday present from my beloved mother. I’m so happy to have it. I can play for hours with her. One more thing that makes me happy. My mother bought Barbie clothes patterns and made several outfits for it. My mom is very nice, isn’t she?
That’s about my new doll. Do you have any dolls?
Love,
Tiara
