My Experience of an Earthquake

            Has everybody here heard of an earthquake? Do you know what it is like when it happens? Well, I once experienced it. Okay, I’ll tell you about my experience. Listen.

I was driving along the coast road when the car suddenly lurched to one side.

You know what happened? At first I thought a tire had gone flat but then I saw telegraph poles collapsing like matchsticks. It’s terrible, isn’t it? Next, guess what? The rocks came tumbling across the road and I had to get out of the car. When I got back to town, well as I said, there wasn’t much left. My God, that was a nightmare.

An Excursion to Bogor Botanic Garden


All right, everybody, I’ll tell you about this great place.

On Friday 16 March we went to Bogor Botanic Garden. We went there by bus and we arrived at that famous garden at 10 o’clock.

Arriving at the garden, we were divided into two groups. Group A followed Mrs. Nina and Group B followed Mr. Ahmad. I was in group A. Well, first we went to the odd tropical plants and Mrs. Nina read us some of the information. Then, we looked at all the lovely plants. After that, we went to a little spot near the Raffles cemetery and had morning tea. Next, we did some sketching and then we met group B at the information center to have our lunch.

Soon, it was time for us to go to the orchid section while Group B did some research on flowers. Uhm…A lady led us to the orchid section. Then, she explained about many kinds of orchid.

Next, we had a look at the Indonesian orchid. Wow, we saw many kinds of Indonesian orchids. They were all beautiful. Later, we took a look at the American, European and Asian orchid’s section. It was interesting. Soon after we had finished our observations, we went back outside and met group B. Then, we got on the bus and returned to school. We really enjoyed the trip to Bogor Botanic Garden.
