Spending Time in Mpu Rancak Beach

ORIENTATIO A few days ago, Icha, Syifa and I went to Dianas home in
N Tahunan, Jepara. We left at 9 am by motorcycle.
Once its there, we were straight to Dianas room and
turned on the laptop. Certainly, using the internet. Diana just
shook her head to see our behavior. Hey guys, have not
apologize to me, make mistake again.. said Diana. Icha, Syifa and
I apologize to her and she forgave us.
At 10 am, we went to Mpu Rancak beach in Mlonggo,
Jepara. From Tahunan until Mpu Rancak Beach so far, that we
were a little tired. But its not a big problem for us. Once up
there, we were fascinated by beauty of the beach. White sand
and a little reefs add beauty of the beach. At there we played
sand and water, sang together, ran track, took pictures and also
made a video about us. Before went to home, we held hands and
screamed out loudly Amchadifa Forever!!. We hugged and
laughed together.

we were happy because its first time we do it.
After lunch, Syifa and Icha straight went to home
because Icha will go to Semarang. And because I havent picked
up by my brother, Diana told me to wait in her home. I agreed
with her.
In Dianas home, just like that Diana and I used the
internet. Diana into Twitter, while I went to YouTube to see a
music video of 4minute, Love Tension. After an hour in Dianas

percentage points in unofficial quick counts by polling
agencies released after the July 9 election.

$140 million and was on his third bid for the presidency,
repeatedly claimed that polling firms with links to his

i. Age of Respondsibility for Crime

k. When a person old enough to be


j. THESIS / responsible for a crime? This question needs to be
ISSUE investigated because the current law is not good
enough.
m. The law at present protects children
aged between ten years and four years from being
punished for committing crimes. It is believed that
children under fourteen years are too young to
realize the seriousness of their crimes. Mr. Stephen
Scarlett, head of the NSW Childrens Court,
describes how clever young offenders use this
defense, saying that they are too young to
understand that they have broken the law. Mr.
Scarlett, an expert on this subject, states that the
age should be dropped from fourteen to twelve
l. ARGUMENTS
years. I agree with this.
n..............................................Teenagers these days are far mor
sophisticated than those in the past. The law should
recognize this. In a recent survey some people
suggested that the age for being responsible for a
crime should be dropped to eight years old. This, I
feel, is too young. Fourteen, however, is too old. Is
there anyone who believes that a fourteen-year-old
does not know that it is against the law to steal or
vandalize property? By the age of twelve, children
are aware of what is legal and what is not.

bj.......................Crazy Little Thing Called Love

bl. Crazy Little Thing Called Love (2010) is a


Thailand romantic comedy starring Fern Pimchanok
Luevisedpaibul (as Nam) and Mario Maurer (as
Shone). Nam is a high school girl who is secretly in love
bk.ORIENTAT with her senior, Shone. Shone is a charming 10th-
ION grade-student who interested in photography and
football. He often teased by his schoolmate because
his father failed to take penalty shoot on the football
cup. Even though, many girls are still crazy for him,
including Nam.
bn. Aware as not-a-dazzling-girl in the
school, Nam, with the help of her friends, try
everything to improve herself to get Shones attention.
She start to treat her dark skin and start to study
diligently.
bo. On the next next next grade, Nam has
become a beautiful girl. Then come another charming
boy at school, Top, Shones best friend. Top has
expressed his love, but Nam refused him because of
bm. INT
her love to Shone. But, Shone and Top already have
ERPRETATI
agreement that they wont love same girl. This promise
VE
makes Nams love to Shone seems not possible.
RECOUNT
bp. In the end of school year, Nam will go to
continue study in America and Shone will take a
football career. Before they separated for long
time, Nam expressed her feeling to Shone with all of
her courage. But sadly Shone has been dating someone.
After that meeting, it turns out that Shone also has a
feeling for Nam.
bq. Nine years later, they meet again.
And..happy ending.
br. EVALUATI bs. This movie has a simple storyline. It
ON / describe first love and its cheesy things. That
RESOLUTI CHEESY!!!
ON bt. Although the story is simple,
unfortunately the movie is told with a bit long-winded
and makes the duration is quite long, almost two hours.
But dont worry because the transformation of Nam
may not be boring and can be a refresher during this
film. Pretty good movie, nothing special but still
entertaining.
bu. After watching this movie, it is funny to
realize how every little thing can make us either happy
or worried. Chasing is really the best part, right?
bv. Besides that, love can make someone
change, either to fit with his/her loved one or to get
his/her attention. Its good if the change go to the
positive direction.
bx. I think, on eastern culture, it is not usual
bw. EVA
if a woman express her feeling first to a man she
LUATIVE
loved. So, note to every man, say love if you love her
SUMMATI
before its too late because second chances do not

always exist.
