Festival budaya Successfully Shook The Ground Again!

SMAN 3 Bandung proudly presents Festival Seni, Sastra, dan Budaya 2017 : Gathapraya

     Suuup! Its been a long time since the last time I posted on this blog. You know, lately, I've been so emotional because you know what? Indonesian teenagers nowadays call it gagal move on which means that you are failed to get over something. 

You all who lives in Bandung probably knows this annual event called Festival Seni, Sastra, dan Budaya or well known as Fesbud. Well, this year, we just held it a few days ago. It was really dope and memorable and I don't think that I'll get over it. 

Festival Budaya is SMAN 3 Bandung's cultural annual event. I think that events like this are a little bit rare nowadays. This is what makes this event special. Festival Budaya is a place where you can have fun without forgetting our native cultures. It's a chance where you can preserve our cultures that are already fading out. 

If not us, who wo…

Trip to Pangandaran

The Sea is Calling!

    Well, the point of this blog is that you'll see where did I get my darker skin from.

Umm... hello?

Welcome back to my blog to whoever is reading this right now! I honestly don't have any idea for this greeting thing so let's just get right into the story.

Anyway, a few weeks ago, on Saturday and I forgot the exact date, my school held an English game program that is called The World Tournament. But because I couldn't make it there, then I'll make it up here, right now, by telling y'all why I didn't come that day.
So, my mom had booked a trip to Pangandaran for two days. Of course we couldn't cancel the trip so me and my family went there in the middle of the night on Friday by a car, so we could arrive there by the beautiful sunrise. 

But though, it was far from our expectation to see the sunrise by the sea because the fact is we arrived there at eight in the morning because on the way there, we pulled over a little longer than we plan…

Plans For The Upcoming Holiday

Holiday is Coming!
Once upon a sunny day, a girl was sitting on a cafe corner alone. Her name is Yasmin. She was enjoying her cup of coffee with a John Green's book on her hands when a curly haired guy walked into the room and saw Yasmin sitting there alone. He smiled and walked over to her. He is Harry. The guy he met a few weeks ago in the park.
Yasmin was so glad to see Harry again and they spent the day talking about a lot of things. 

Yasmin                       :           It’s September already isn’t it?
Harry                          :           yeah, time flew by so fast. And holiday is about to arrive

Yasmin                       :           Talking about holiday, what are your plans for it?

Harry                         :           I’m still not sure. Probably I’ll fly back home to England to meet my                                          family
Yasmin                       :           That’s interesting. It must feel good to be back home. Whom will you                    …

Unforgettable Moment


Everyone has a moment they will never be able to forget. Whether a good one, or a bad one. And now, be prepared because I'm about to spill my story about an unforgettable moment that I've experienced approximately five years ago.
I remember, it was exactly August 17th. Indonesia was turning 67 that day. Me, my mom, my aunt, and my two cousins spent the day hanging out in one of Bandung's popular shopping center, Paris Van Java. 
A lot of stores were holding massive sales. Who doesn't love discounts? Exactly no one. Everyone is a big fan of discounts so are my mom and my aunt. They spent the time by hunting good stuffs with low price in almost all of the stores.
Me, and my cousins Novia dan Rafizki, got really tired following those two women around the mall. You know how women do when a huge sale happens. So, the three of us decided to go ice skating. The place was quite crowded when we got there. Actually, none of us could really skate lol. We str…

Making A New Friend

Introduction Conversation  
    Today is Sunday, and the sun shines so bright. Yasmin is strolling around a park downtown. She really enjoys the fresh air in the park because the park has lots of green trees. She keeps walking around the park until she bumps into a guy who is standing under a tree.

Yasmin : I am so sorry!
Harry : It's okay, really.
Yasmin : I'm Yasmin, by the way. May I know your name?
Harry : Well, hello, Yasmin. My name is Harry.
Yasmin : You don't look like a native Indonesian, Harry. Where are you from?
Harry : I'm from England. Quite far I know. My dad works here so I came along with him and here I am.
Yasmin : Ahh, I see. I should've known it from your thick accent though.
Harry : It's pretty obvious, isn't it?
Yasmin : It is. Where do you live now, Harry?
Harry : Not so far from here. I liv…
