My Holiday

Hi everyone!
Here, I wanna tell you a story during my holiday.
I want to share every moment with you!

During my holiday, I went to Garut and met my family. Actually, every holiday I had to go to Garut because I always miss my family in Garut. There are many tourism places in Garut. I could go everywhere that I want to visit during holiday. 

First, I visited Kamojang Green Hotel and Resort, it was a beautiful place in Garut. We could take photos there and enjoyed the fresh air. Also, there is an cafe. I also enjoyed the meal while enjoying the place. The weather was cold, so it was great to drink a hot drink.

In the next day, my family and I went to Bagendit lake which is located in Wanajara, Garut. This place is one of favorite tourism place in my city. The history about this place is known enough by people especially about Nyi Endit who is believed still alive in the lake.

Then, my family and I went to Ciamis city to visited my uncle. There, I went to Warung Jeruk restaurant which is very famous because its delicious food. The foods are sundanese food such as fish, chicken, and many vegetables. But in my opinion, the food was not really good. Also, the place is far enough from my uncle's house. it took about a half hour to arrive at that restaurant.

After that, We went to Tasik and went to Pamijahan. Pamijahan is a place of pilgrimage. Actually, I didn't want to go to that place. It was really boring because the place is really far from my uncle's house. I didn't enjoy the trip. But, my grandfather and grandmother was so excited to visit that place, so I had to join.

A few days later,  My family and I went to Tegal, Central Java. There, we visited my aunt's house. It was a long trip. We took about 8 hours and passed many city such as Tasik, Ciamis, Banjar, Kuningan, Brebes. We took some rest in Ciamis and Brebes. There, the weather was so hot and it made me feel uncomfortable in that place. So, every day we didn't stay at home, we had to go outside and enjoyed the city.

My mother had a plan to go to Jogjakarta. So, My family and I went Jogjakarta from Tegal by car. There was a traffic jam, and we took 8 hours to arrived at Jogjakarta, a great city. 

I was so excited and felt happy when arrived at Jogjakarta. The city was so great and I enjoyed every day in Jogja. In the fisrt day, I went to Prambanan temple which is famous enough in Indonesia. It was an amazing place. It amazed me that in the past. humans could build a large bulding just by a stone. There, I took many photos in every moment. I enjoyed the place, I played an archery with my brother. It was fun!

After that, We went to Gembira Loka Zoo. I played a speed boat there, took some photos and looked around to see the animals such as bird, snake, elephant, crocodile, tiger, and many more. Also, I made a video with my brother about the animals at that place. My brother really like that place and he was really excited to look around and see the animals.

In the night, We went to Malioboro and bought some clothes. Also, we ate in the restaurant around Malioboro. The food was great and I enjoyed it. 

Then, My aunt asked me to go to mall. Then, we went to Galeria Mall. There, we didn't have a lot of time. So, we couldn't stay there for a long time. At 9 p.m, we went back to the hotel.

In the next day, we went to Borobudur temple in Magelang. There were so many people there, and as usual the weather was very hot, but I still enjoyed my holiday there.

I really miss my holiday, it was a great holiday for me with my family!

However, in 2013 the National Legislative Council approved a proposal to create a new Regency - South Garut Regency to include the 16 southernmost districts of the existing Garut Regency, with a combined population of about 600,000. 

         The people in Garut mostly consist of Sundanese people. Also, they embrace islam as their religion. There are so many people that I love, such as my family, my teacher, my friends and the others, live in Garut. They are so friendly, funny, and live a simple life.

It's is made from rice flour, brown sugar, coconut milk, and glutinous rice and available in many fruit flavours. Also, there is Burayot that known as "Ali Agrem".

Tell a Story

Hello there!

Here, I have three stories from my friend and one story from me in my grup.
They are Hana, Alfari, and Ruth.

First, here is my story that I've told.


JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

Once upon a time there was a boy called Jack. He lived with his mother. They were very poor. All they had was a cow. One morning, Jack’s mother told Jack to take their cow to market and sell her. On the way, Jack met a man. He gave Jack some magic beans for the cow. Jack took the beans and went back home. When Jack’s mother saw the beans she was very angry. She threw the beans out of the window. The next morning, Jack looked out of the window. There was a giant beanstalk. He went outside and started to climb the beanstalk. He climbed up to the sky through the clouds. Jack saw a beautiful castle. He went inside. Jack heard a voice. “Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum!” Jack ran into a cupboard. An enormous giant came into the room and sat down. On the table there was a hen and a golden harp. “Lay!” said the giant. The hen laid an egg. It was made of gold. “Sing!” said the giant. The harp began to sing. Soon the giant was asleep. Jack jumped out of the cupboard. He took the hen and the harp. Suddenly, the harp sang, “Help, master!” The giant woke up and shouted, “Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum!” Jack ran and started climbing down the beanstalk. The giant came down after him. Jack shouted, “Mother, help!” Jack’s mother took an axe and chopped down the beanstalk. The giant fell and crashed to the ground. Nobody ever saw him again. With the golden eggs and the magic harp, Jack and his mother lived happily ever after. 




Moral value : When you give something to the others person sincerely, you will get something better than before. You will get something that will make you more happier and reach what you want. Based on Jack's story, when he gave a cow to the man, he got magic beans. Then, he found a castle and he brought the golden harp and the hen that make him became rich and live happily ever after with his mother.


Second, here is the story that Hana has told.

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS 

There were once three little pigs, who started out to seek their fortune. The first that went off met a man with a bundle of straw, and said to him: --
"Please, man, give me that straw to build me a house."
Which the man did, and the little pig built a house with it. Presently came along a wolf, and knocked at the door, and said: --
"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."
To which the pig answered: --
"No, no, by the hair of my chiny-chin-chin."
The wolf then answered to that: --
"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in."
So he huffed, and he puffed, and he blew his house in, and ate up the little pig.
The second little pig met a man with a bundle of furze, and said: --
"Please, man, give me that furze to build a house."
Which the man did, and the pig built his house. Then along came the wolf, and said: --
"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."
"No, no, by the hair of my chiny-chin-chin."
"Then I'll puff, and I'll huff, and I'll blow your house in."
So he huffed, and he puffed, and he puffed and he huffed, and at last he blew the house down, and he ate up the little pig.
The third little pig met a man with a load of bricks, and said: --
"Please, man, give me those bricks to build a house with."
So the man gave him the bricks, and he built his house with them. So the wolf came, as he did to the other little pigs, and said: --
"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."
"No, no, by the hair of my chiny-chin-chin."
"Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house in."
Well, he huffed, and he puffed, and he huffed, and he puffed, and he puffed and huffed; but he could not get the house down. When he found that he could not, with all his huffing and puffing, blow the house down.

Moral value : Hard work and perseverance pays off at the end. When we do something, we have to do our best. No matter what, we have to do our best to produce something satisfying. Then, never give up and always try and try to be better. To be better, we can learn from our mistake. We can learn from the pigs who is never give up when they built they house. They try to do somehing better and repai their mistake. So finally, they can built a good house who is can't be disturbed by the wolf anymore.


Third, this is the story that Ruth has told. 

SAM THE MOUSE

In a faraway land named Bookville there was a library, but it was not a normal library it was a floating library! Many people came to the library on boats and cars. Hundreds of people filled the library everyday. At night a little mouse named Sam came out and took papers from the librarians desk, and took them into his hole. He had written books for his whole life, but he had never shown them to anyone. Sams whole room was filled with books. The only furniture he had was a desk, a chair, a fridge, and a bed.
One day Sam thought he should show his books to everyone. He made up his mind and the next day he put the books in the shelves where they belonged. A few minutes later a child found one of Sams small books. She took the book to the librarians desk and asked her, Who wrote the book? The librarian said, I do not know who wrote this book, but I can hang a poster asking who wrote the books.
The next day the librarian hung a poster saying: Who has been writing small books? If you are the author please come to the librarians desk. That night when Sam came out to put his books in the shelves he saw the poster and read it. He finally decided to come out the next day. He came to the librarians desk the next day and told the librarian he was the author of the small books. The librarian was very proud of Sam. She told him she would tell him a big surprise the next day. The next day Sam came back to the librarians desk and asked the librarian, Can you tell the big surprise? She told Sam that she was going to open a small class called Little Authors. Sam was going to help children write their own books! The next day the class opened and many kids came. There were twenty kids and Sam helped all of them!

The moral value that we can learn : Never be shy and learn to face your fears. We have to be confidence with our skill. We have to believe in ourself. When we have have something that is done by our skill, it is okay for us to show it to everyone. Unless they like or no. Sam, he is good at writing. But he was not confidence enough to show it to everyone. But, when he tried to be confidence and be brave, he showed it to everyone. Then, we see now. The story that he wrote is so good enough and people like that. Because of that, he got a surprise and he looks very happy.


Last, here is the story that Alfari has told.


 THE LION AND THE MOUSE

Once when a lion, the king of the jungle, was asleep, a little mouse began running up and down on him. This soon awakened the lion, who placed his huge paw on the mouse, and opened his big jaws to swallow him.
“Pardon, O King!” cried the little Mouse, “Forgive me this time. I shall never repeat it and I shall never forget your kindness. And who knows, I may be able to do you a good turn one of these days!”
The Lion was so tickled by the idea of the mouse being able to help him that he lifted his paw and let him go. 
Sometime later, a few hunters captured the lion, and tied him to a tree. After that they went in search of a wagon, to take him to the zoo.
Just then the little mouse happened to pass by. On seeing the lion’s plight, he ran up to him and gnawed away the ropes that bound him, the king of the jungle.
“Was I not right?” said the little mouse, very happy to help the lion.
Moral Value : Don't judge anything by its physical conditions. Look at its sincerity and the kindness that is given to us. No matter how strong we are, we will need the help of others one day. Be friends with anyone, and help each other. Like the lion and the mouse. When the lion sincerely free the mouse, the mouse will be thankful and remember the kindness that the lion give. And one day, when the lion need the help of others, the mouse will be there and help him.




Every story has their own moral value. When we read a story, we have to know what is the moral value, what can we learn from it. So, We can learn a lot from a story to make our life better and be a kind person.

I think that's all from me, thank you.

My Friend's Unforgettable Moment

Hello everyone!

You know that everyone has an unforgettable moment in their life.
It can be sad story, funny story or happy story.
And now, I will tell you about Maisa’s unforgettable moment.
Who is Maisa?
Maisa is my classmate in X Science 7.

This morning, my english teacher made a group in my class.
She told us to hear about our friend's story especially their unforgettable moment.
After that, we should write down about the story and retell it in our own blog.
Every student should choose one of their friend story in their own grup.
Then, I choose the story of Maisa.

Maisa has been told me about her unforgettable moment in this morning.
Actually, she told everyone in our grup about her story.

This is her, Maisa!

In this morning, she came late to the school. She arrived at school at 06.40 am. it means she was late ten minutes. She told me that she woke up late and it makes she came late. After she arrived at school, she met her friends who are the student of  X Science 1. Then, she followed her friends because she knew that all of student who is followed by her is came late. She didn't realized that she followed wrong person. so, she just still enjoy and keep follow them and then arrived at Balai Kota of Bandung. 

Maisa didn't realize that she followed a wrong person, She has been already realize when she arrived at Balai Kota. She realized that everyone that she followed are the student of X Science 1 who got a permission from school to go to Balai Kota. No one came late, just herself. She was so confused, and she did not know what to do. Then, she finally decided to go back to school alone. It was so far enough to walk from Balai Kota of Bandung to the school. She was so tired because of walking and arrived at school at 08.00.

Because of that accident, she didn't join the ceremony flag. After she arrived at school, the ceremony is doing. So, she ask permission to wait in the class. She felt so happy because she can wait in the class of X Science 8 and did not get a punishment by the teacher. After she wait for some minutes and she get rest, the ceremony already done. All of student went back to their own class. Maisa, she went to X Science 7. She told me that she felt so shy of herself. Besides it, she felt so tired. But, she still felt happy that she can join the class in the first lesson, it was history lesson.

When I heared about her story, I can imagine what she felt at that moment. Felt shy, tired, and confused. But I thought that she was so lucky because she did not be punish by the teacher. From Maisa's story, I can learn that we should not came late to the school. Beside that, we should be more careful, and focus in every situation.

I hope, that from my friend's story we can learn something and be better.
Enjoy your day!
Thank you.

Hi there!

That is about "Where is the place that I want to visit?"
Actually, this topic is from my assignment for presentation in front of class.

Do you know Garut?
Have you hear about Garut?

Not all of you knows about Garut, maybe just some of you who knows Garut.
And here, I will to tell you about Garut as my lovely hometown.

Garut is located in West Java Province of Indonesia. It also located to the southeast of the major city of Bandung. it is about two hours from Bandung. You know, that I live in Bandung becasue I'm studying in SMAN 3 Bandung. But, I'm from Garut and I have studied in Garut when I was in elementary school until Junior High School. So, I just live in Bandung for a while. My parents and my big family still lives in Garut, so at least I go to Garut every month to visit my parents. I feel like I live in Bandung but my soul still lives in Garut. Every month, I can't be honest to wait weekend time and go to Garut. I always feel happy in every moment when I will go to Garut. Garut is a home for me. That's why I choose "Garut" as my topic presentation about "The place that I want to visit.

There are so many things that I like from Garut.
