                       Satria T . V. A

    There is a a poor boy who wears a pair of broken shoes in a park. When he walks around the park, he meets a rich kid who wears a pair of good shoes. The poor boy gets away from the rich kid, feeling jealous. He wishes that he can be the rich kid so that he can wear good shoes. A miracle happens. The poor kid becomes the rich kid, and vice versa. But then the rich kid realizes the fate of the rcih kid. He cannot walk. He is very shocked, but the rcih kid is very excited because he can run even though he wears ugly shoes

    Morale of the story:
    ·         We should be grateful for what we have because there are many other people who are under us and they want to be like us.
    ·         Expectation is always same with reality.
    ·         Don’t judge someone from the outside

    The story was taken from the following video

  • The Spirit That Never Ends

    My sister was a skilled young gymnast. Too bad that her injury when she was twelve years old made her unable to do gymnastics anymore. I still remember how bad her injury was. When she fell from the gymnastic pole, she screamed so hard that everyone had to look at what happened. Bad choice. It was such a frightening sight that some people always vomited at the sight of it. Apparently, she landed on her arms when she fell and she fractured both of her arms. She was then taken to the hospital while in unconscious. Unfortunately, the road to the hospital was still under construction because of last week's earthquake. They had to take another route that was 5 km farther. Because it's the only route left to go downtown, my sister ambulance was trapped in a traffic jam. One and a half hour later, they arrived in the hospital and my sister was immediately taken to surgery room. The doctors were able to save sister's live, but her hands were already dead and had to be amputated. My sister was really depressed after that. But fortunately, she was able to adapt and cope with her disability. She  already had more than enough knowledge about gymnastic before the accident happened and she decided to share her knowledge by publishing a book called "Gymnastic for Amateurs". She also became a motivational speaker in a famous university in my city.

  • The new Korean Restaurant

    Higher Intermediate 2/ 2016

    Eating at a seafood restaurant near my house was quite an experience. I went to the restaurant two weeks ago along with my cousin. It was her treat, so she let me choose the menu to my heart content.

    To be honest, I was kind of afraid to choose a new menu from a restaurant I've never been to. Bu since my cousin was gonna pay the food, I chose the menu which was not really expensive, but looked unique. I chose seafood sukiyaki with samgaetang (Korean dish) soup.

    When the food was served, both of us were surprised. There were squids, octopus, shrimps, fish cakes, oysters, sea squirt and abalone. But the big octopus in the middle of the pot was still alive. The others were still fresh. Were wondering how to eat them.

    Right after that, a waitress came with a table stove and a big bowl full of soup. She turned on the stove, put the bowl above it and put all the ingredients inside. As soon as the soup boiled, the octopus died. We cut its tentacles using scissors. This perhaps sounds cruel, but this is how Korean people eat seafood suki.
