       THE UGLY DUCKLING



Image result for the ugly duckling


       One upon time, a mother duck sat on her eggs. She felt tired of sitting on them. She just wished the eggs would break out. Several days later, she got her wish. The eggs cracked and some cute little ducklings appeared. “Peep, peep” the little ducklings cried. “Quack, quack” their mother greeted in return.However the largest egg had not cracked. The mother duck sat on it for several days. Finally, it cracked and a huge ugly duckling waddled out. The mother duck looked at him in surprise. He was so big and very gray. He didn’t look like the others at all. He was like a turkey.
      When the mother duck brought the children to the pond for their first swimming lesson. The huge grey duckling splashed and paddled about just as nicely as the other ducklings did. “That is not a turkey chick. He is my very own son and quite handsome” the mother said proudly. However, the other animals didn’t agree. They hissed and made fun of him day by day. Even his own sisters and brothers were very unkind. “You are very ugly” they quacked. The little poor duckling was very unhappy. “I wish I looked like them” he thought to himself. One day, the ugly duckling run away and hid in the bushes. The sad duckling lived alone through the cold and snow winter.

       Finally the spring flowers began to bloom. While he was swimming in the pond, he saw three large white swans swimming toward him. “Oh, dear. these beautiful birds will laugh and peck me too” he said to himself. But the swans did not attack him. Instead, they swam around him and stroked him with their bills. As the ugly duckling bent his neck to speak to them, he saw his reflection in the water. He could not believe his eyes. “I am not an ugly duckling but a beautiful swam” he exclaimed.
       He was very happy. From that day on, he swam and played with his new friends and was happier than he had never been.

My Student Leadership Basic Training Experience

Raissa's Student Leadership Basic Training
         I have my second student leadership basic training at my high school. Before that I have done this leadership basic training at my junior high school, 5 Junior High School. The first leadership basic training that I have done before took place at 5 Junior High School Bandung. And now, as the new student at 3 Senior High School me and all of the new student must attend the Student Leadership Basic Training at Lapangan Pussenif. This event is for free, we don't need to pay for anything. We are guided by soldiers in Pussenif, our teachers, and also our seniors. 
         In the first day, we were lined up in Pussenif Field ( Lapangan Pussenif) and had an opening  ceremony there. It was a good day to had a ceremony. After we had a ceremony we were lined up again to move to the hall or auditorium in there. At the hall, we had an opening speech by our principal. Followed by welcomed from the chief executive. After that we were lined up again to walk in to our barracks. We moved neatly and swiftly to our barracks. We arrived at our barracks and put our bags and things immediately. Then, we were lined up again and moved back to the hall. We had so much material from the presenter that did a presentation to us. After the presentation we had a lunch. That lunch season was the most complicated lunch that I and probably my friends have ever had. Because we had to eat with our back straight and banana above our heads. And also we had to sing out loud before we had the meal. We said that the most complicated lunch that we have ever had because maybe we never eat properly and we were starving enough to sing at that time, though. After we sang and had our meal we finally ate. We ate with banana above our heads and back straight. After we ate, we were lined up again immediately and got prepared for pray. We ran to the Pussenif Field immediately and lined up and walked to the mosque for prayed. After we prayed we went to the hall again and got new materials from the presentations. We were almost threw up at the moment because we ran immediately right after we ate. But we still had to focus on the presentation. After the presentation, we were lined up again by our seniors to go back to our barracks. We prayed and we slept. I couldn't slept at that time because I were tired. Suddenly about at 12 am a siren rang out loud and I was shocked, so do my friends. And we were just remembered that if there were a siren rang we have to change our clothes and lined up n front of the barracks building immediately. We were in rushed at that time. We ran with sleepy head at that time and lined up. Some of my friends were still wore their pajamas, and the soldier told us that someone who still not wore the properly clothes would had a punishment and the punishment was exercised at the field. Imagine, we had to exercised at 12 am !? It was so freezing but we still to obey the rules.

In the second day, we woke up at 3 am and prepared to prayed. We were lined up by our seniors and to the mosque to had dhuha before shubuh prayer. We were freezing along the road when walked to the mosque. When we arrived  at the mosque we had wudhu (ablution) right after. Continued with dhuha prayer and religion speech. I were so sleepy when I did dhuha prayer. We listened the speech and sometime me and my friends suddenly fell asleep at a second. The speech was about 1 hour. And when the speech over, we continued to took an ablution (wudhu) again for shubuh prayer. After we prayed, we went to our barracks again and got ready to took a bath. After that we changed our clothes into our tracksuits uniform. Then we were lined up again with the soldiers and went to the field to warmed up. At 1pm we prepared to go to Taman Makam Pahlawan. We went there by our foot and it took about 1 or 2 hours to got there. It was a fun and tired moment at the same time. When we arrived there we made a circle around the parking lot. Continued with prayed. At 6 pm we did magrib prayer first and went to our line and we had to made our faced black. That was for hide our identity when we played the games at the Taman Makam Pahlawan or we called the games "jurit malam." After that we were given a paper that had a secret text. We should remembered the text to entered the place where the games were. We couldn't told our enemy in there. The game was so fun and creepy at the same time because 3 of the players had to walked by the grave. I can't tell much about this because that was a long story. But you just need to know that the "jurit malam" was so amazing and memoriable.

In the third day, which is the last day of this student leadership basic training we watched G30SP movie before we went home. After that at 11 pm we had a closing ceremony and also our last ceremony in this student leadership basic training. After the ceremony me and my friends took a photo with the soldiers. After that we picked up by our parents and went home. This was a memorable thing to remember and amazing student leadership basic training too.

  • The Fishing Cat is a small to medium sized feline that is natively found throughout a number of countries in south-east Asia. Unlike other cat spesies found around the world (with the notable exception of the Jaguar) the Fishing Cat spends most of its life in areas of dense vegetation close to water and is an excellent swimmer. However, despite its water-loving lifestyle, the Fishing Cat is not particularly specially adapted to its semi-aquatic lifestyle with small teeth that are not well designed for holding onto slippery prey and only slight webbing between the toes on its front paws to help it to negotiate the slippery banks. 
  • The kingdom of Fishing Cat is Animalia, the phylum is Chordata, the class is Mammalia, the order is Carnivora, the family is Felidae, the genus is Prionailurus, the scientific name of it is Prionailurus viverrinus.
  • Fishing cats live foremost in the vicinity of wetlands, along rivers, streams, oxbow lake, in swamps and mangroves .The fishing cat is the state animal of West Bengal.
  • The Fishing Cat is a nocturnal and solitary hunter that rests amongst dense vegetation during the day before heading to the water at night to find food. They are incredibly strong and capable swimmers and have been known to swim vast distances often in pursuit of a fish trying to get away.
  • The fishing cat is the largest of the Prionailurus cats. Its coarse fur is olive-grey to ashy-grey with darker stripes on the shoulder and roundish or oval-shaped spots on the flanks and sides. The short and rounded ears are set low on the head, and the back of the ears have a white spot. Two stripes are on the cheeks, and four stripes run from above the eyes between the ears to the shoulder. The underside is white, and around the throat are two rows of spots. The tail is short, less than half the length of head and body, spotted at the base and with a few black rings at the end.

Worst Experience

I'm going to tell my worst experience that I've ever had.

 It happened when I was in 8th grade. I was doing a group project with my friends in Tria's house. Her house is the closest to my school, 5 Junior High School. We made a homemade pizza and cake as our project.We bought some stuffs that needed in our project first then we went to my friend's house to make pizza and cake. When we arrived at her house, we were ate first because we were hungry at that time. After we ate, we prayed. Then, we went to the kitchen and started to cook. Then we realised that we were not had a milk for our cakeballs, then my friend asked her housekeeper to bought the milk. Then we continued. When we finished making pizza and cakeballs, we all went home. And I just realised that I didnt turned on my phone. When I turned on my phone, I had a lots of My Mother's message because she had waited for an hour and she told me via message that she decided to went home because had waited so long. She told me that I could went home by online car.
But I received the message when I already walked quite far from my friend's house yo the place that where my mother picked me, I was in front of Siliwangi Swimming Pool at that time and the cloud was getting darken. I was so scared at that time and I decided to waited at the swimming pool and ordered gojek. But the online transportation apps was error, I was so sad at that time. So I called my father to picked me up at Siliwangi Swimming Pool and my father told me that he would picked me up after his work done and told me to wait at the cafe in the swimming pool and the bill would payed by him. And then after I ordered and drank finally my dad came and I was so relief.

It's All About Raissa

Hello !
Welcome in my blog ! This time I'm going to write a blog about myself.
Hope you like it !

I was born in Bandung on 7th July 2003. Now I'm 14 years old and I'm at 10th grade in 3 Senior High School. My Junior High School was 5 Junior High School. I were really happy when i accepted as a student in 5 Junior High School because it's called favorite school by many people.I have a lot of memories in my junior high school and got a lot of kind and smart friends too. 

My 7th and 8th grade went well. But when I was in 9th grade, I had to studied harder and harder than before to get a good National Exam score. Because if I get a good National Exam score I can be a student in all students dream, that is 3 Junior High School. Day by day in 9th grade goes tough but nice too. Everyday when school is over me and my friend go to our course together. Usually, me and my friend have 2 to 3 different course a day. But we went through the days with happy feelings even sometimes we feel tired. 

Finally, I'm accepted as a student in 3 Junior High School. I hope that with I accepted in 3 Junior High School it can bring me to be a doctor as I wished.

I want to be a smart and kind doctor in the future. I want to be a pediatrician because I like to heal people and I love kids because they are so cute. 

I wish that my dreams come true.
