Tasmanian Devil
Australia has many interesting animals. The first animal is Tasmanian Devil. Have you heard this animal before? It only lives on the Australian island state of Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Devil is a marsupial like the kangaroo. This means the mother has a pocket or a pouch where she carries her babies. The Tasmanian Devil is mostly black but sometimes it has some white fur on its chest. It has short legs and a long tail. It looks a little like a very small bear. The largest male can be about 30 centimeters high and can weigh up to 12 kilograms. That’s about the same size as a small dog. But the females are usually smaller. The Tasmanian Devil is a nocturnal animal. That means it likes night time. It sleeps in the day and gets up at night to look for food to eat. In the daytime, it will sleep under a fallen tree or in long grass.
The Tasmanian Devil was given this name by the first European people who went to Tasmania. They called it because they were afraid of it. They were afraid because it makes a terrible sound and it is horrible to watch it eating. The Tasmanian Devil has a strong mouth and very sharp teeth. It eats a lot of meat. It will eat small animals like rabbit, birds, and reptiles such as lizards. It will even eat dead cows and sheep if it can’t find any.

What is Rubberwood?
Rubberwood is the standard common name for the timber of Hevea Brasiliensis. Rubberwood (also called Parawood in Thailand) is one of the more durable lumbers (wood) used in the manufacturing of today’s home furnishings. Rubberwood has very little shrinkage, making it one of the more stable construction materials available for furniture manufacturing. Rubberwood has very little tendency to warp or crack.
Like maple, rubberwood is a sap producing species. In the case of maple, it is sap; in the case of rubberwood, it is latex. Rubberwood produces all the latex used in the world for all rubber based products.
There is one more important feature of rubberwood that is very important in today’s world. Rubberwood is the most ecologically friendly lumber used in today’s furniture industry. After the economic life of the rubber tree, which is generally 26 – 30 years, the latex yields become extremely low and the planters then fell the rubber trees and plant new ones. So, unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is used only after it completes its latex producing cycle and dies. This wood is therefore eco-friendly in the sense that we are now using what was going as waste.

The Magic Candle
One day, a young wanderer got lost in the wood. Suddenly, he saw a light from an old hut. He knocked on the door, and an old woman opened it. She was crying. She said that a devil had stolen her magic candle. The candle could grant anything she asked. The wanderer asked her where the devil lived. "In a castle not far from here," said the old woman.
The wanderer went to the castle. There he found the devil but he was old and weak. Therefore, when the wanderer grabbed the magic candle from the devil's table and ran away, he couldn't chase him.
However, the wanderer was not a kind man. He didn't return the candle to the old woman, but kept it for himself. He lit the candle and made a wish, "I want to go far from here."
Suddenly, a genie appeared and took him to a beautiful palace. There was a party in the palace. The wanderer wanted to make some money. So, he lit the candle again and wished for some jewelry. He sold them to the guests and was soon making a lot of money. Then, a princess came to buy some jewelry, but there was nothing left. The wanderer fell in love with her, and asked her to marry him. The kind princess said "yes", and they got married the next day.
In his happiness, the wanderer told the princess about his adventure and the magic candle. Hearing that, the princess got very angry. At night, she lit the candle and wished the wanderer disappeared.
In the morning, the wanderer awoke and found himself back in his ugly house in the village.

Mouse and Crocodile
One day, a monkey wanted to cross a river. He saw crocodile in the river, so he asked the crocodile to help him. The crocodile told the monkey to jump onto its back. Then the crocodile swam down the river.
Now, the crocodile was hungry. When the crocodile was in the middle of the river, it stopped and said to the monkey, “Monkey, my father is sick. He must eat the heart of a monkey, then he will be strong again.”
The monkey thought for a while. Then he told the crocodile to swim back to the river bank.
“What for?” asked the crocodile.
“Because I didn’t bring my heart with me,” said the monkey.
“I left it under the tree near some coconuts."
So, the crocodile turned around and swam back to the bank of the river. As soon as they reached the river bank, the monkey jumped off the crocodile’s back and climbed up to the top of a tree.
“Where is your heart?” asked the crocodile.
“You are foolish,” the monkey said to the crocodile.
“Mow. I am free and you have nothing."

Celebrating The Earth Day
Some weeks ago, in celebrating the earth day, our school had an excursion to Maron beach. Five big buses were ready to take all of us. We left the school at six thirty. We brought brooms, big plastic bags, and other cleaning utensils. We wore wide hats, long sleeved T-shirt, and gloves to protect our body from the sun.
We arrived at the beach after a fifty-five minutes drive. The beach was so dirty. Garbage was everywhere. It was not beautiful at all. We looked at the beach sadly. We were all very sorry about this view.
Mrs. Marwati told us to get off the bus and start our program right away. We did the cleaning up immediately. We picked up the garbage and brought them into the dumping ground.
We were very happy to see the beach clean. The beach is beautiful again now.

Maya intended to visit her uncle, Budi, her aunt, Dewi and her cousin, Murni in Jepara. They live there. She went to Tanah Abang bus station. She looked around as she walked into the station. There were a lot of passengers there. Some of them just sat and the others stood and talked with their friends. Maya bought a cup of tea and piece of cake. Then, she found an empty seat beside some girls. It was a coincidence that one of them was Rani. Maya’s friend when they were in Junior High School. She asked Maya where she studied. She said she studied at the English Department in a university. A conversation started and the time passed quickly. Suddenly, Maya looked at her watch. “Oh dear!” she said. “I forgot about the time and now I missed the bus.”
