Not The Kind Of Night You See

The night I see might not be the kind of night you see

Waiting for Ketoprak sellers to finish my orders. I direct direct my view around. Observing.

Starting from left, I saw this enormous boarding house. It has 6th floors in total. The building is all white with the un-starry sky as a background. Some motorcycles are parked on the roads down to the building.

My eyes are distracted and start to move to the right

I see smokes flying up to the sky, The satay sellers are busy.

My view comes down a bit. And there’s fire. Burning orange. Burning those chicken meats. And so it’s where the smokes comes from.

Shifting my view a bit to the right. The traffic is not as bad as when the sun is still up.

There are 2 minimarkets. Side by side, competing. Somehow. On the second floor of one of the stores, I saw some girls by the window laughing. Maybe they laugh about the jokes coming from their friends. Maybe not. I don’t know. Only they know.

The ketoprak seller is still busy too. His hand is moving very fast. Mixing the ingredients.

My orders are right after the old man’s. I’ve waited enough. My waiting has come to an end. Ketoprak is ready, and still hot as I bring it home.

The night I see might not be the kind of night you see.

Science : Boon or Bane

This is my essay for this week english lesson in school :D:D

When we heard science, it’s about the invention and technology around us, which always become more and more modern. Science do have useful boons or advantages but also have some dangerous bane.

The 1st boon is Science helps us in food technology. It makes the crop cultivation becomes easier and need less space. The example is hydroponic and aeroponic crop cultivation in which they don’t use soil and even just the air in aeroponic. The biotechnology helps when we makes more variety of food. Imagine if there is no one invented that the microorganism can change the soybean into fermented soybean, tofu and soya sauce can’t either have that much variety of food so we can get bored or we don’t know how to turn it into products so we left it unused.
In the medical world, science provide us with many useful and invention. One of them is the
medical check up so that everyone can know their disease before the disease happened. Another invention is the test tube baby for women with difficulty in pregnancy. Science also have a big contribution to improve the invention of medicines so that they can cure more people with diseases which until now can’t be cured.
Science has proved us that it makes our life easier and also improving our life. It is easier because there are wheels, lever and incline to move heavy things out. There are modes of transportation like cars, plane, train, to move us and things to another part of the world faster. Things like washing machine, fridge, rice cooker, stove, and computers also helps us to do our task faster than if we do it manually. It is improving our life by using Internet to get something we would like to know and learn. Even pens, pencils and paper, which is a science products, improve our life by writing our thought in a practical way.
Whenever there are boon, there are always bane. The bane of science is the pollution they produced in cars, motorcycles, factories,etc. This pollution cause harmful diseases. The chemical produced by scientists to preserve foods as well as to give flavour to food also leaves a dangerous effect and diseases.
Without science life is much simpler and healthier. We know that the older generation breathe in clean air with no pollution and they didn’t have strange diseases like cancers, diabetes, stroke which we have now.
The nuclear disaster happened in Japan about a year ago also proved that science is bane. The nuclear leakage along with the radioactive particles affect the people in Japan and most likely they would die. And it takes a long time to fully get rid of the nuclear pollution there.
The conclusion is Science has boon and bane. It can help us in so many things, but in the other side it also cause damages and diseases.

Change

The world Keeps Changing

Change is everywhere around us. People Change, Non-living things also change. Like the PC for example. Start as the big, huge and gigantic monster, PC keep changing to a smaller and slimmer size, like the LCD, and finally change to tablet. What I try to say is the world is keep changing, and we got to keep changing within it. Like a chameleon, we adapt to the new world, to a new situation. Long Ago, you probably don’t know what internet is. We don’t know what happened overseas.  Now, you just need internet connection, and with one click, much information comes to you. Everything seems so close and near. If you went abroad and you want to communicate with your relatives in your country, you just call them, or if you want it to be cheaper, you just open your Skype and alakazam, you can talk face-to-face with your loved one. Technologies change us all. Now, if you want to buy clothes you can drive to the shop in your town or just simply go to online shop, click what you like, pay it, and taraa.. Your beautiful dresses arrive in front of the door. Blogging and active in Social Media to a certain limit, also a good way to spend your time. You can share your thought and promoting products.

Changes also turn someone bad. Invention like laptop and internet is very good. But, it can make one very addicted to it and forget his responsibility-do the chores, etc.- Social media can really make you addicted. And the result you don’t care about your surrounding. Well, everything change, but, we must keep changing ourselves positively.
