Crossing Time to Past

Two days ago, my friends and I went to our Junior High School. It's been a while since we visited our Junior High few months ago. I'm so glad to come back. The difference is at that time the situation wasn't so crowded because 7th and 8th graders went to school at noon, so my friends and I could go anywhere a bit more freely. We greeted the teachers and all staffs there. I somehow felt missing all those times. After we reach all teachers and staffs, some of my friends went to their favorite place, meatball seller. Hahaha... there is a meatball seller in my Junior High School and few years ago they really loved eating her meatballs. I didn't eat meatballs with them, I went to the class where I stayed one year ago.

I went in and everything looks, more or less, still the same. Oh... I really miss the times when my friends and I saw movies together, chatting or gossipping in the corner of the classroom, when my friends played soccer in the class, etc. I sat on one of the chairs there and then realize that I'm no longer part of this class now and that I am now a Senior High student. Well, time passes very very fast.

By the way, here are few pictures about a class where I stayed 3 years in it during my years on Junior High.

Holiday at Botanical Garden

Hi, bloggers! I'm back with another story. I'm now having holiday for 5 days and it's my 4th day. On the 1st day, my friends and I went to a Botanical Garden in Purwodadi. It's actually not our own plan, the school wanted us to go there to study biology especially Plantae. And so there we were.

It was a very huge and beautiful and green place. Every breath I took really full of oxygen since it's pretty far from pollution. We studied about extinct plants, pteridophyta, and spermathophyta there. They said they don't have the collection of bryophyta so we didn't study about mosses. But still, I felt so excited there because of the place was very nice and my friends were there so we had many chances to take pictures. Hahaha... Here are (only) few pictures I took from my cell phone since I took more pictures in my camera but I still don't have time to move it to the computer =)

Layar Terkembang

Hey, I'd just finished reading a novel titled Layar Terkembang. It's in a very old bahasa Indonesia and pretty difficult to be understood but I can follow the story from the begining until the end. I kinda like the story somehow. I know this novel from some bahasa Indonesia tests because sometimes there are questions about this novel, whether it's about the characters or settings or stuffs.
Simply, this story tells us about two sisters which are very different, the elder sister is Tuti which is so discipline, book worm, and a fighter for women's freedom by being active in women's organizations. While the younger sister, Maria, is a very nice, cheering, and sunny girl. They're so different but they indeed love each other so much. The other main character is Yusuf. He's a man who loves Maria so much and whom Maria loves so much. Yusuf is a man which is also active in youth organizations and he's smart. Yusuf and Tuti often talk much about organizations, youngsters in Indonesia at that time, and some other stuffs and there are certain times where they have different opinion and argue about it. Well, it can be said that Tuti is a very very smart person and it seems that she talks "smart things" too and Yusuf can balance her conversation since he's smart as well.
The climax of this story is when Maria suddenly suffers from TBC and malaria. This TBC had also killed Tuti and Maria's mother and Maria is so afraid of getting killed by this disease. But Tuti and Yusuf are always there for her to cheer her up and to convince her that everything will be fine. In the end, Maria can't survive anymore and before she passes away, she wants Tuti replaces her place in Yusuf's heart and live forever together happily (because she probably knows that Tuti was lonely and I mean very lonely). This story is ended by Tuti and Yusuf go to Maria's grave to ask for Maria's blessing for their marriage.
