Dewa Athena

Saturday 25th March 2017 and Saturday 1st April 2017 all 10 graders of SMAN 3 Bandung held a sport event called as “Dewa Athena”. Dewa Athena in English means Athena the Goddess, but actually it’s an abbreviation for “Olimpiade Siswa, Ajang Tunjuk Kebolehan, Eksistensi, dan Kebersamaan Siswa” or in English translated as “Students Olympic, Talent Show, Existence, and Student Togetherness Event”. This event is similar to class meeting in other school, but the difference is Dewa Athena don’t disturb any school lessons while class meeting in other school usually hold after the school semester ends or the school dedicates a week to hold the event without any lessons.                 The event should start at 7AM, but when I arrived at 7.30 AM it was not started yet.

Movie Review : Spare Parts

One of my favorite movies is Spare Parts. Spare Parts is not a popular movie in Indonesia, because it didn’t play in Indonesian theatre. However, the value that the film bring is absolutely great and the story is really moving.
