Song

"The Adventure"


I wanna have the same last dream again,
The one where I wake up and I'm alive.
Just as the four walls close me within,
My eyes are opened up with pure sunlight.
I'm the first to know,
My dearest friends,
Even if your hope has burned with time,
Anything that's dead shall be re-grown,
And your vicious pain, your warning sign,
You will be fine.

Hello, here I am,

And here we go, life's waiting to begin.

Any type of love - it will be shown,

Like every single tree reach for the sky.
If you're gonna fall,
I'll let you know,
That I will pick you up
Like you for I,
I felt this thing,
I can't replace.
Where everyone was working for this goal.
Where all the children left without a trace,
Only to come back, as pure as gold,
To recite this all.

Hello, here I am,

And here we go, life's waiting to begin.
Tonight,
Hello, here I am,
And here we go, life's waiting to begin.
Tonight,
Hello, here I am,
And here we go, life's waiting to begin.

I cannot live, I can't breathe

Unless you do this with me
I cannot live, I can't breathe
Unless you do this with me
I cannot live, I can't breathe
Unless you do this with me
I cannot live, I can't breathe
Unless you do this with me
I cannot live, I can't breathe
Unless you do this with me
I cannot live, I can't breathe
Unless you do this with me

Hello, here I am (do this with me),

And here we go, life's waiting to begin (do this with me).
Hello, here I am (do this with me).
And here we go, life's waiting to begin,
Life's waiting to begin.

Indonesia Education's Problem

Educating Indonesia


Indonesian educators and commentators have slammed the country’s schoool system for placing more emphasis on rote learning than creative thinking. A culture of teaching anchored in obediance as well as a rigid approach to religious studies and assigned reading have been described as major problems. Education experts say less than half of the country’s teachers possess even the minimum qualification to teach properly and the teacher absenteeism hovers at around 20 percent. Many teachers in the public school system work outside the classroom to improve their incomes. Corruption is also rife within schools and universities, with parents often having to pay bribes for their children to pass examinations or pay for services that should be provided the state. Indonesia Corruption Watch (KPK) claims there are very few schools in the country that are clean of graft, bribery, or embezzlement, with 40 percent of their budget siphoned off before it reaches the classroom. Meanwhile, millions of dollars in foreign aid is poured into the country’s education system despite the government spending only a very small proportion of its target on schooling. And some international observers are asking why Indonesia still relies on external funding for school construction given that it has been listed as middle income country by the World Bank. Responding to its critics, the Indonesian government is introducing a new curriculum in an effort to simplify education, slash drop-out rates and produce more PhDs. One of the government’s most controversial proposals has been to abolish or postpone the teaching of science, geography, and English in elementary schools and to instead introduce compulsory subjects that promote national identity and patriotic values. Many educators are concerned that this could push Indonesia back to the Stone Age in a rapidly globalising world. They argue that a child’s early years are the time to provide them with a more formative education using critical thinking, especially considering the high drop-out rates after primary school. But the government has defended the changes to the curriculum by arguing that they are trying to simplify a school system that has been criticised for overwhelming elementary students with too many subjects. The new curriculum would contain religion, nationalism, Indonesian language, math, arts, and sports. The current curriculum according to the Education ministry is putting too much strain on students, and that it is looking to limit subjects taught in elemntary schools to just six, eliminating science, social studies and English. The government said that it want to increase the amount of time spent on “character building” subjects such as Islamic studies and local culture. They claim that character and cultural development among students can be materialized through the integration and interconnection of subjects that emphasize faith and morality, the implementation of religious values, the implementation of the state ideology, the understanding of the concept of nationhood, the spirit of patriotism and Indonesian cultural wisdom. But some people argued that the curriculum would only cause more problems for students and teachers. The government also increase the learning school hours from 32 hours per week to 38 hours per week. From my personal opinion, I think that this new curriculum can be used to increase the students nationalism and character building. But the government shouldn’t erase the science and  social studies because it is very important to learn so that we can keep up with the rapidly globalising world, but in order to put less burden to the student the learning school hours should be reduced to a reasonable amount. And the students should be able to pick the subjects that they only wanted to.

My Last Holiday

MY HOLIDAY
Hey guys, today I want to share you about my last holiday. After the finish of first semester, my family and I went to Surabaya for holiday. We left Bandung from Husein Sastranegara Airport  at 31st of December 2015, just before the New Year Eve so we can celebrate it there with the whole family. We arrive there at about 21.00 local time. We got picked up by my uncle, Uncle Rahmat. Before we went to my grandmother’s house, we went for some dinner because my father said the flight makes him hungry.
After we had the dinner at some restaurant near the airport. Then we went to my grandma’s house. At the first day, we didn’t do anything because we got so tired after the flight. On the second day, we attended my aunt’s celebration of her new house with her husband. The event went until 6 P.M. After that we went back home because all of us got tired but we had so much fun.
On the third day we went to my other uncle’s house to celebrated my birthday. Yup my birthday was on 3rd January. My mother and my father didn’t give me anything, instead they gave me some priceless advice about life. My uncle and my aunt took me to a restaurant for a lunch for my birthday, and the other family just said “Happy Birthday”, and that made me happy :D . At the end of the day, I got so much present even though some of it was not a real thing but it still made me very grateful that there’s still people that cared to me.
The fourth day was the funnest day at Surabaya because we went to a tour around Surabaya city with my cousin alone. We went to some of the most iconic places in Surabaya, like the Pasopati Submarine Monument, the Darmo Elite City, and Majapahit Hotel. It was really fun because I got to know the history of some of that places and took some photos of it.

Then at the fifth day, we got to went back to Bandung because my father’s break was only last until 5th January. It was sad to leave Surabaya because it was such an awesome city to explore. Okay I guess that’s all from me, thank you guys and stay safe, be awesome. Wassalamualaikum wr.wb.

Beijing's Bird Nest Olympic Stadium


Beijing National Stadium, officially the National Stadium (Chinese国家体育场pinyinguójiā tǐyùchǎng), also known as theBird's Nest (鸟巢niǎocháo), is a stadium in Beijing, The stadium (BNS) was a joint venture among architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron of Herzog & de Meuron, project architect Stefan Marbach, artist Ai Weiwei, and CADG which was led by chief architect Li Xinggang. The stadium was designed for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics and will be used again in the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. The stadium is currently used mostly for football matches.




Located at the Olympic Green, the stadium cost US$428 million. The design was awarded to a submission from the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron in April 2003 after a bidding process that included 13 final submissions. The design, which originated from the study of Chinese ceramics, implemented steel beams in order to hide supports for the retractable roof; giving the stadium the appearance of a bird's nest. Leading Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was the artistic consultant on the project. The retractable roof was later removed from the design after inspiring the stadium's most recognizable aspect. Ground was broken on 24 December 2003 and the stadium officially opened on 28 June 2008. A shopping mall and a hotel are planned to be constructed to increase use of the stadium, which has had trouble attracting events,football and otherwise, after the Olympics.



 eastern and western stands of Beijing National Stadium are higher than northern and southern stands, in order to improve sightlines. A 24-hour-per-day rainwater collector is located near the stadium; after water is purified, it is used throughout and around the stadium. Pipes placed under the playing surface gather heat in the winter to warm the stadium and coldness in the summer to cool the stadium. The stadium's design origi
Thenally called for a capacity of 100,000 people; however 9,000 were removed during a simplification of the design. The new total of 91,000 was shaved further when 11,000 temporary seats were removed after the 2008 Olympics; bringing the stadium's capacity to 80,000. The farthest seat is 460 feet (140 meters) from center field. Temperature and airflow of every surface were optimized to increase ventilation.

School Life

Hi, friends!
Today i want to tell you about my school life at SMA 3.

I'm a 10th grader at SMA 3. I go to school at 06.00 A.M. And i go to school usually by car. At SMA 3, my class is X-Science 5. As normal school, there are many homeworks, test, and quiz come together. First, I am not habitual with the atmosphere of the school. But slowly, I can adapt myself into the school atmosphere. Each day, each lesson, we always get homework. The hardest day ever in the school is 3 test and one homework. Fortunately, in my school, there is a library that has many books so we can easily get the references for study.the tests are very hard, especially math and science (biology, physics, and chemistry). Maybe the easiest lesson that I mention is biology and the hardest is physics. In Junior High School, I learn physics just about counting and few theory. But, in Senior High School, I learn about how to analyze the nature phenomenon from the physics side. I think it is very hard.We can refresh our brain with the extracurriculars in my school. The students that interest in sports can join BM3 (Belitung Muda 3), UBBAS3 (Unit Bola Basket3), BC3 (Badminton Club 3), and many more. The student that interest in music can join MK3 (Musik Klasik 3), BAND3, and many more. I just join 2 extracurriculars because I adjust with my extra lesson and study time. There are DKM (Dewan Keluarga Masjid) and Trilogi. There are many events that can refresh too. One of them is Gamarvani Festival that I tell on another post. 3 Senior High School always hold festival every year. Last year, the name is Matswapati and this year the nameis Gamarvani. There are so many performer in Gamarvani. The guest star is Adera and HiVi! There are the famous singer in Indonesia.

Place About Me

MONACO

Hello everyone! Today i want to tell you a place about me, which is Monaco!



Monaco (Listeni/ˈmɒnək/; French: [monako]), officially the Principality of Monaco (French: Principauté de Monaco),[a] is a sovereign city-state and microstate, located on the French Riviera in Western Europe. It is the second smallest and the most densely populated country in the world. Although small, Monaco is very old and quite well known, especially because of its status as a playground for the rich and famous; who themselves become a spectacle for tourists and an economic engine in the Mediterranean. In 2014 it was noted about 30% of the population was made up of millionaires, similar to Zürich or Geneva.

 Monaco is a principality governed under a form of constitutional monarchy, with Prince Albert II as head of state. Although Prince Albert II is a constitutional monarch, he wields immense political power. The House of Grimaldi have ruled Monaco, with brief interruptions, since 1297.[10] The official language is French, but Monégasque, Italian, and English are widely spoken and understood.[b] The state's sovereignty was officially recognized by the Franco-Monegasque Treaty of 1861, with Monaco becoming a full United Nations voting member in 1993. Despite Monaco's independence and separate foreign policy, its defense is the responsibility of France. However, Monaco does maintain two small military units.
