Post Cards, Anyone?

By Ms/ Lala
Living in this era is probably lured by any instant things. Just name any things in our life now: Messaging, shopping books, any kinds of entertainment, all in instant access. People who used to live in 80s or 90s might miss some things like sending message to relatives or friends in handwriting form or just wait for postman to drop by. Shopping can be done in instant way, too. Just sit relax on your desk while browsing internet. Just the things you want to buy, click buy and pay, and the next day, your shopping is sent to you. Books. Remember bringing a lot of books to school or campus, with thick dictionary that would make your back hurt.

From the idea, I try to persuade my students to literally send post cards to their friends. I took one unit from ET 6 book, Star 2, about things in post office. Guess what? Many of them don’t have any experience to go to post office. Well, I can’t blame them if they don’t have anything to do there, why should they go there? But, as a teacher, I think this is a good way to introduce the way their parents and their grandparents send message in the past. Knowing the vocabulary in the post office is not enough if they don’t experience how to do it.

Tidal Flood Attack

Water is vital to life. No animal or plant life and human can survive without it. The land will not yield without supply of adequate water. yet, the same water causes havoc and becomes a terror in the form of flood when the rivers overflow their banks due to excessive rain. In Jakarta, flood is something common that happen every year in all parts of the city. During rainy season, the rivers overflow and cause disastrous disaster which cause heavy destruction to life and property. The flood can also make it hard and impossible for everyone to do their activities,, for example: go to school or go to work. This is a very serious situation that needs to be overcome immediately.

My Idol: Kim Myung Soo

Well, since I was a 9th grader, I started to like one of Korean boy groups. It is INFINITE. INFINITE consists of 7 people. I like one of the members. His name is L. Well, his stage nam is L, but his real name is Kim Myung Soo. When I found out his stage name, I was thinking that he is having same name like one of anime characters from Death Note.

A Little About Me Hi! My name is Rosa Ophelia Tambunan. People usually call me Ocha. I was born in Pontianak, Oct, 31st 1999. I’m studying at 4 SHS on the first grade. I love English and I really want to improve my English so I’m studying here at LIA. I like foods! Especially fried rice. I love green tea latte. I love hanging out with friends and having a quality time with them. My hobbies are singing, playing a piano, sleeping and doing nothing, eating, swimming, playing badminton, taking pictures etc. I love talking with people and meeting new friends. I may be shy at first but I’m friendly enough. I hate every lesson in school except English and Art thingy. I have been living in Semarang for almost 3 years. I’m tall and have fair skin. I’m not really thin. I have long black curly hair. My favorite colors are black, white, tosca and pastel pink. I love some singers and artists. But I do love Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Maroon 5 so much. I’m not their biggest fan but I’ll always love them and also their songs of course. I never go to any concerts but I hope I will soon. Well… I don’t have any ideas to write here. I think it’s enough. Thank you. (p.s it’s very hard to find a normal picture of me so here it is)
