Sometimes when i pass certain places in Jakarta, I often see piles of trash by the side
of the street or even by the river.This view is annoying. It makes our city look ugly and
very dirty. If we walk near the pile of trash,we could smell stinky odors coming from it.

However,many people live around this mountain like heap of trash. Many children play
nearby. Also, a lot of women wash clothes and fruits and vegetables in the river which is
contaminated by trash.This is terrible I think they dont realize the danger, because they dont
have knowledge about healthy living.
In my opinion ,the government must make a regulation that prohibits people to build
houses near the trash disposal (dump site). Also ,there should be special officers .like police
officers, who watch and catch people who throw trash on the ground or into the rivers.
Moreover,if a big fine doesnt make people stop dropping litter carelessly, the government
should put them in jail as punishment.
Finally,I think the efforts to keep our environment clean and tidy need hard work
from both the citizens and government.

Rain is the primary source of fresh water for most areas of the world, providing suitable
conditions for diverse ecosystems, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop

The phenomenon of rain is actually a water circle. The concept of the water cycle involves the
sun heating the Earth's surface water and causing the surface water to evaporate. The water
vapor rises into the Earth's atmosphere. The water in the atmosphere cools and condenses
into liquid droplets. The droplets grow until they are heavy and fall to the earth as precipitation
which can be in the form of rain or snow.

However, not all rain reaches the surface. Some evaporates while falling through dry air. This is
called virga, a phenomenon which is often seen in hot, dry desert regions.

Chocolate starts with a tree called cacao tree. The tree grows in equatorial regions,
especially in places such as South America, Africa and Indonesia. The cacao tree
produces a fruit about theb size of a small pine apple. Inside the fruit are the tree
seeds, also known as cacao beans.

The beans are fermented for about a week, dried in the sun and then shipped to the
chocolate maker. The chocolate maker starts by roasting the beans to bring out the
flavour. Different beans from different places have different qualities and flavour, so they
are often sorted and blanded to produce a distinctive mix. Next, the roasted beans are
winnowed. Winnowing removes the meat nib of the cacao bean from its shell. Then the
nib are blended. The blended nibs are ground to make it a liquid. The liquid is called
