This afternoon, I was in a hurry. I had to get Lawang before East Java Bank closed. Indeed, my school is in Wagir, a place that so far from Lawang. It’s about 40 km. I was a bit worried coz it was almost 12 o’clock while East Java bank closed at 2.00 pm. It take 2 up to 2.5 hours to reach Lawang using public transportation. I was continuously grumbling why we are always late to get the information. Today we get the information and tomorrow is the due time.
Besides, Tomorrow is Saturday, and the bank is closed. Moreover, why should we legalize the bank account? I think it is impossible for a person to submit the wrong bank account because she or he will be unlucky. Uughh.. Nothing to loose to fulfill the requirements! Baca lebih lanjut

Banyak buku Teks dan LKS (Lembar Kerja Siswa) yang kurang tepat dalam memberikan contoh teks deskriptif. Kebanyakan mereka memberikan contoh teks report ketika membahas teks deskriptif. Bahkan, waktu saya ikut pelatihan ToT (Training of Trainer) KBK Bahasa Inggris Tingkat Nasional (2004) pun yang membuat modul tentang Teks deskriptif keliru dalam memberikan contoh. Dan alhamdulillah kekeliruan itu telah dijelaskan oleh pembuat modul report. Teks descriptive and report memang sama sama memberi gambaran tentang sesuatu (describing things) tetapi ada perbedaan yang penting diantara keduanya. Baca lebih lanjut
MY TERRIBLE WEEK
I was hospitalized for a week because of malaria last month. At first, I had headache, aching muscles, stomachache, and weakness. Then, I got fever, chills, loss of appetite and vomitting. I thought that I got cold, but the doctor said that I had malaria. I was afraid because people suffered from malaria can develope severe complications and die. The doctor and the nurse tried to calm me down. They said that malaria could be cured. The doctor then gave me medicine. After a week in the hospital, the doctor said that I could go home.
When I was walking home from school yesterday, I saw an accident. A car hit a motorcycle from behind. The driver could not control his car because he drove very fast.
The car didn’t stop after the accident. It even ran faster and disappeared. The traffic was not so crowded. No one came to help the motorcycle’s rider. He was injured badly. I was so scared at that time.
Thaen, I called the police and tried to find help for the victim. Soon, the police came. The police asked me some questions. I told them what happened. After that I went home because it was already dark.
It was really tragic.
Then, I got out of the bed quickly and went to look out of the window. As I looked, I saw the house opposite began to fall sideways. Then I realized what was happening. I put on my dressing gown hurriedly and rushed out into the garden.
I was alone in the house, my wife and children had gone to visit my mother in law.
For three or four minutes, I heard a terrible noise of walls falling down, and people screaming, and I saw clouds of dust in the air. Then the trembling stopped.
There were about fifty persons killed and more than two hundred injured. The damage to the property was considerable and about three hundred houses would haveto be completely rebuilt. (Taken from Strategi Sukses Unas Bhs Inggris SMP/MTs)

SEND ME A CARD
Last Summer, I went to Italy. I visited museum and sat in the public garden. Then, a friendly waiter lent me a book. I read a few lines but I did not understand a word. Everyday, I thought about poscard. My holidays passed quickly but I did not send any card to my friends. On the last day, I made a big decision. I got up early and bought thirty seven cards. I spent my whole day in my room but I did not write a single card. (Taken from “Practice and Progress”)
