 COMPLIMENT

In life you will meet so many wonderful people that helped you during your happy or hard moment in life.  One of the most important person that helped me besides my parents and family is my coach.

In 2015 after I finished all of my national exam, I kind of dont have any spesific activities. I just joining a swimming team that I joined for about 2 years. At that time I am just a passive swimming athletes. Yes I've been competiting in several triathlon competition but it just for fun and my dad makes me do it.  I've planned to stop doing an active sport  when I high school. At that time I have no dreams to become any national athelete.

May 2015. Indonesia national triathlon coach asked me if I want to joined the national team practice or not. That thing    is not even ever crossed in my mind , to be asked to practice with the national team. I said yes definitely.

The first time I joined the practice I had no idea how it would be, all I see when I arrived at the track is fast national senior athlete. The first practice felt so hard, I cried after it all finished. I start to think to giving up but my coach keep telling me that if i  want to joined this national team i have to strong enough to hold of this kind of pain and i have to sacrifise my time for practice for "Indonesia".

Day by day passed, every time I arrived at the practice I never thougth that I can through the whole practice, but my coach keep encourage me and makes me stay and believe to my stregth. He teaches me how to be a better person how to fix my attitude during practice but the most important is he help me to be a better person.

Week by week pased, my first international event comes. It is bali international triathlon. I was competiting in junior 16-19 category my coach told me to do my best. And I did it I got 3rd in international female category and 1st in national female, i am so proud but most of them all of my hard works paid off. After crossed the finish line and I saw my coach I said thank you for all of his support.

All I want to say is A coach, is someone who tells you what you dont want to hear,  has you see what you dont want to see and tells you to do things that you even don't think you can do, even sometimes a coach believes more in you more than you believe yourself. I am so greatful to have a coach that make me can be someone who I never thought I can be.

Learn From Nature
Nature is a place where we live in. Our life is really demanding to nature. Almost all of our life needs is taken from the nature.  Starting from oxygen for breathing, woods for building our house as a place for a living, fruits for eating, water for our hydration, fisheries, and many plant for medicine. So what actually we can learn from nature and what is our action as a ‘thank you’ for nature?
                Not just fulfilling our needs nature also teaches us many lesson of life. The first one is nature don’t hurry but it accomplished everything. Everything takes time but surely done, not like human, seems like were rushing for everything but sometimes at the end that thing is not done yet actually. Second one, nature teaches us that everything has a purpose. Nature  teach us no matter how small a creature is, it still matter to our life if it’s not directly matter to our life there is must be a way that connect our life to that creatures.  The third one is nature teach us that the best things in life are totally free. Sometimes we think that the best thing must be the most expensive one but nature teaches us that were completely wrong. When we look to the nature, nature provides us so much beautiful scenery that we can enjoy for free.  And the last one is nature teaches us that a bad stuffs always follow with the good stuffs. Sometimes when bad things happened to us we tend to think that it’s just our bad luck or it’s just our destiny, but we don’t realize actually after a bad stuff comes there must be a good stuff that follows. For example after a bad volcano erupt that killed so much plants, animals and almost everything years later the place of that volcano erupt will be so much fertile and excellent to be used for planting plant that will provides need for so much people.
                How to enjoy nature? The first one is to go outside and start looking for a new place to be visited. Second one, find a place such as a rock for you to sit down and get relax. Third one closes your eyes and start picturing the nature in front of you in your mind. Start exploring the nature better by going for a hike or maybe a camping. By that you will understand that nature still hiding so many gifts for you to be found. And by taking and enjoying nature’s gift you will try more to appreciate nature by starting to protect it.
                But not all of human think that nature is useful, there are also many people that think that nature is just a place to be broken. And after that nature will also give all of us the ‘give back’ in way of natural disaster after we ‘hurt’ the nature. Natural disasters that commonly happen are forest fire, tornado, volcano eruption, earthquake, tsunami, landslide, and earthquake. And all of that natural disaster is actually the result of what we did to the nature. So from now start protecting our nature. The things that I did for protecting nature are, me and my aunt with some of my friends make a ‘Bank Sampah’ what is ‘Bank Sampah’? Actually it’s like a bank what were not saving money but saving reusable trash like cartons of milk, cans of soda, water bottles and many more. And after the customers of the bank give their trash to be save the trash that they collect is trade to money, so they can start saving their trash and not throwing their trash everywhere so the trash is more controllable.  But I belief that there are so much more things that we can do to protect nature that can be easily done in our daily life. Such as walk more, do 4R (reduce,reuse,recycle,replace), take public transportation, and many more. 
                So that’s all for my opinion about learning from nature and I hope that from what I wrote I can give contributions to protect nature. The last message that I want to share is a quotes from Albert Einstein that said ‘Look deep into nature and you will understand better.’ Thank you for spending your time to read my essay. Let’s protect nature together!

My Last Holiday  to Makassar
Last holiday my family and I went to Makassar for a family holiday. My family members that joined this trip are my mother, my brother, my aunt, my grandfather , and my cousin.  My  brother and my cousin had never been to Makassar before. So this is their first visit to Makassar.

We went there by an airplane. We took lion air flight that depart at 06.00 am in the morning. We arrived at the airport at 05.00 and we just went to the lion air counter for check-in and baggage drop. After we got our boarding pass we went to the boarding lounge and wait until our airplane arrived. At 06.00 our airplane arrived and the airplane crew let us to inside the airplane. This flight took about 2 hours , with hour time difference between Bandung and Makassar. We arrived at 9.00 am WITA. When  we  arrived at Sultan Hasanudin Airport ,the situation is quite crowded . We waited for our baggage, after we took all of our baggage we went out from the airport and we were picked up by my grandfather’s friend’s car and driver. Makassar had a lot of changes since the last time I went here at 2012.
Our first stop is at Coto Pa Daeng. Coto is one of the most famous Makassar special food . My brother loved coto so much . he ate about 3 bowl of coto , I don’t know either he loved coto so much or he just starving because of the flight.  After we all finished our coto we went to my grandfather’s old friend house. He had a quite long conversation.  After he finished we went to Fort Rotterdam .
Fort Rotterdam is a 17th century fort that located at ujung pandang.  It was built by the Dutch on top on the existing fort of gowa kingdom.  It was rectangular in shape surrounded with 7 m walls and was equipped with 6 bulwarks , 5 of them still visible.  In fort Rotterdam there are also 2 museums, the first museum told us about Indonesian weapon and the other one told us about the history about Makassar. 
After we finished we went to Kampung Popsa for  a lunch. Kampung Popsa is one of the most famous restaurant in Makassar because of the location which near harbor . After we finished our lunch we went to our hotel and took rest for a while and we had our dinner at the restaurant at the hotel ,after that we took a rest.


 It’s our second day, today we planned to go to the beach. We decided to go to Akarena Beach . The beach is located not too far from the center of the Makassar city. The current wave of the beach is quite tide so I decided to swim at the beach. After me, my brother and my cousin finished swimming we changed our clothes and we decided to have our dzuhur prayer at Cheng-ho mosque. After that we decided to have our lunch at Trans Studio Mall.








After that we went to the famous Losari Beach we took some pictures and we also took our ashar prayer there at floating mosque. After we finished we went to somba opu to buy makassaar special merchandise. My mom bought a lot of stuffs. My mom bought makasssar special snacks that I loved so much which are kerupuk bawang and kacang disko.  After my mom had finished her shopping, we decided to have a lunch at Konro Karebosi. Konro Karebosi is also makassar favorite traditional food, konro basically is a ribs with a brown-black spice soup. After we finished we went back to our hotel and took our rest.
It’s our third day and also our last day. At our last day we planned to visit some family and my grandfather’s old friend that lived at Makassar.
But first we took our breakfast at palubassa serigala. Pallu basa is another makassar special food. Basically its similar to coto but the soup is different, it didn’t contain coconut milk, so it tasted lighter . after we all finished we went to my grandfather’s old friend house to say a goodbye . when we arrived there they served us with jalangkote . jalangkote  basically a pastel but it contains more vegetable. After we all said goodbye and my grandfather took a pictures with his oldfriend we went to my grandfather’s sister
house. After talked for a few hours we decided to say goodbye because we had to catch our flight. Last lunch at makassar we ate at one of the most famous seafood restaurant, we were invited by another friend of my grandfather . After we finished we immediately went to the airport . We took about one and a half hour to the airport . When we arrived at the airport we went to the lion air counter for check-in an baggage drop. After we got our boarding pass we waited at the boarding lounge. Finally at 18.00 the lion air crew permitted us to go inside the airplane and at 19.00 WIB we arrived at Soekarno Hatta International Airport. This is my story about my last holiday. Thank you !

At the time of the movie’s release, she was only seven years old.In 1993, she starred in the film, ‘Cyborg 2’ as Casella ‘Cash’ Reese and played the role of a near-human robot. The film did not do well and this demotivated her to a great deal.In 1995, she appeared in the film ‘Hackers’ that won her a lot of appreciation, especially from The New York Times. In the next two years, she played the part of a stripper in ‘Anybody Seen My Baby’, a music video by the Rolling Stones.In 1998, she starred in the HBO blockbuster biographical series, ‘Gia’, which was based on the life of supermodel Gia Carangi. A string of successes followed and she gained international acclaim with the 2001 film, ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’, which established her in Hollywood.She played an FBI profiler in the 2004 film, ‘Taking Lives’, an assassin in ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ and a disturbed wife in ‘The Good Shepherd’.

.She was presented the Global Humanitarian Action Award from the United Nations Association of the United States of America, in 2005.

Humanity Work
The suffering of the people in Cambodia caused Ange to contact the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to find out how she could help. She then went on her first overseas mission – an 18-day trip to Sierra Leone and Tanzania.
She followed that up with a two-week trip back to Cambodia and then met with Afghan refugees in Pakistan. Not long after she was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and her humanitarian work really got going. Since being appointed as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Angelina has visited over 30 countries and even risked her life. On a recent trip to Afghanistan she revealed that she had written a farewell
letter to Brad Pitt after being warned she was a target for attack. Two weeks after she arrived home a UN bunker was attacked and everyone inside it was killed. Angelina, on the whole, has focused her attention on refugees and people who have been displaced due to conflict. This cause has seen her visit Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand, Ecuador, Kosovo, Kenya, Namibia, Sri Lanka, North Caucasus, Jordan, Egypt, New Delhi, Costa Rica, Chad, Syria, and Iraq.
She has also helped those who have been displaced by natural disasters, including earthquake victims in Haiti.
Angelina has also set up and financed many charity organisations. In 2003, she founded the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation (after her first son, Maddox, who she adopted from Cambodia) which is dedicated to community development and environmental conservation in Cambodia. When Brad and Angelina’s twins, Knox and Vivienne, were born the couple sold the first images of the babies to People and Hello! for $14 million, using the entire amount to help fund the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

Fight Breast Cancer
Despite her selfless humanitarian work, generous charity donations and her role as a devoted mother, it was Angelina’s announcement that she had undergone a preventative double mastectomy that really won people’s admiration.
Not only did the star take the brave decision to have the dramatic surgery, after discovering that she had a high chance of developing cancer, the same disease that killed her beloved mother, Marchelline Bertrand, in 2007, but she wrote a moving op-ed piece for the New York Times so that other women would hopefully benefit from her decision.

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD
Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest.  Whenever she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.
One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been awhile since they'd seen each other.
"That's a good idea," her mother said.  So they packed a nice basket for Little Red Riding Hood to take to her grandmother.
When the basket was ready, the little girl put on her red cloak and kissed her mother goodbye.
"Remember, go straight to Grandma's house," her mother cautioned.  "Don't dawdle along the way and please don't talk to strangers!  The woods are dangerous."
"Don't worry, mommy," said Little Red Riding Hood, "I'll be careful."
But when Little Red Riding Hood noticed some lovely flowers in the woods, she forgot her promise to her mother.  She picked a few, watched the butterflies flit about for awhile, listened to the frogs croaking and then picked a few more. 
Little Red Riding Hood was enjoying the warm summer day so much, that she didn't notice a dark shadow approaching out of the forest behind her...
Suddenly, the wolf appeared beside her.
"What are you doing out here, little girl?" the wolf asked in a voice as friendly as he could muster.
"I'm on my way to see my Grandma who lives through the forest, near the brook,"  Little Red Riding Hood replied.
Then she realized how late she was and quickly excused herself, rushing down the path to her Grandma's house. 
The wolf, in the meantime, took a shortcut...
The wolf, a little out of breath from running, arrived at Grandma's and knocked lightly at the door.
"Oh thank goodness dear!  Come in, come in!  I was worried sick that something had happened to you in the forest," said Grandma thinking that the knock was her granddaughter.
The wolf let himself in.  Poor Granny did not have time to say another word, before the wolf gobbled her up!
The wolf let out a satisfied burp, and then poked through Granny's wardrobe to find a nightgown that he liked.  He added a frilly sleeping cap, and for good measure, dabbed some of Granny's perfume behind his pointy ears.
A few minutes later, Red Riding Hood knocked on the door.  The wolf jumped into bed and pulled the covers over his nose.  "Who is it?" he called in a cackly voice.
"It's me, Little Red Riding Hood."
"Oh how lovely!  Do come in, my dear," croaked the wolf.
When Little Red Riding Hood entered the little cottage, she could scarcely recognize her Grandmother.
"Grandmother!  Your voice sounds so odd.  Is something the matter?" she asked.
"Oh, I just have touch of a cold," squeaked the wolf adding a cough at the end to prove the point.
"But Grandmother!  What big ears you have," said Little Red Riding Hood as she edged closer to the bed.
"The better to hear you with, my dear," replied the wolf.
"But Grandmother!  What big eyes you have," said Little Red Riding Hood.
"The better to see you with, my dear," replied the wolf.
"But Grandmother!  What big teeth you have," said Little Red Riding Hood her voice quivering slightly.
"The better to eat you with, my dear," roared the wolf and he leapt out of the bed and began to chase the little girl.
Almost too late, Little Red Riding Hood realized that the person in the bed was not her Grandmother, but a hungry wolf.
She ran across the room and through the door, shouting, "Help!  Wolf!" as loudly as she could.
A woodsman who was chopping logs nearby heard her cry and ran towards the cottage as fast as he could.
He grabbed the wolf and made him spit out the poor Grandmother who was a bit frazzled by the whole experience, but still in one piece."Oh Grandma, I was so scared!"  sobbed Little Red Riding Hood, "I'll never speak to strangers or dawdle in the forest again."
"There, there, child.  You've learned an important lesson.  Thank goodness you shouted loud enough for this kind woodsman to hear you!"
The woodsman knocked out the wolf and carried him deep into the forest where he wouldn't bother people any longer.
Little Red Riding Hood and her Grandmother had a nice lunch and a long chat.

TARSIUS


TARSIUS 

Do you know about tarsius? Tarsius is one of many endemics animal from Indonesia. This animal is endemic to Sulawesi Island. This small primates came from tarsidae family and tarsius genus.




PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION
Tarsius have a small round body covered in soft,velvety  fur. They have a long scaly tails. They have a big round eyes . They weigh 102g-114 g  for females and 118 g to 130 g for males.



DIETS
Do you know what tarsius eat? Tarsius mainly feeds on grasshoper,bugs, small bird. Tarsius is a nocturnal animal, so they find they prey at night. Under the cover of night, Tarsiers sit clinging to vertical branches where they wait motionless and survey their surrounds 180 degrees each way watching closely with their huge eyes and picking up on even the tiniest noise with their incredibly sensitive hearing. Once food has been located, the Tarsier moves slightly closer to it before leaping onto it and catching it with it's front hands. The long fingers and toes of the Tarsier enable it to also trap flying prey mid-air and provide an almost cage-like device to prevent it from escaping before the Tarsier has killed it.

HABITAT
 Where can we find tarsius? Western Tarsiers are generally found in lowland primary forests or low mountain forests on the islands of Borneo, Sumatra, Bangka, Belitung, Kalimanta and small surrounding islands. Eastern Tarsiers can only be found on Sulawesi and the surrounding islands but seem to be more adaptable to habitats at different levels of forest, with the exception of the Pygmy Tarsier which is restricted to very high mountainous forest. Tarsius can be found in primary and secondary growth forest. But, they tend more likely to live in secondary growth rain forest because of the avabilities of foods.
HABBIT
Tarsius is a nocturnal animal. They very active through the night. At dusk,they travel for about 30 minuetes to find their forage sites. During this time,they frequently stop to grooming their body by licking and scratching their fur with their toilet claws. If heavy rain occurs, tarsius will find a dry area to remain inactive.  When morning approaches, tarsies will “sing” as they return to their sleeping sites, either as a duet with their mate or in family chorus.

Tarsius usually lives in pairs or in small groups. They are highly social animal.
