The Wind and The Sun

an Aesop Fable
The wind and the sun argued one day over which one was the stronger.
Spotting a man man traveling on the road, they sported a challenge to see
which one could remove the coat from the man's back the quickest.
The wind began. He blew strong gusts of air, so strong that the man could
barely walk against them. But the man clutched his coat tight against him.
The wind blew harder and longer, and the harder the wind blew, the tighter
the man held his coat against him. The wind blew until he was exhausted,
but he could not remove the coat from the man's back.
It was now the sun's turn. He gently sent his beams upon the traveler.
The sun did very little, but quietly shone upon his head and back until the
man became so warm that he took off his coat and headed for the nearest
shade tree.

“The Lion and the Mosquito”

A lion grumbled and growled at a mosquito which kept flying around his head as he tried to take a nap.

“Go away before I crush you under my paw,” he roared

“I’m not afraid of you,” teased the mosquito. “You may be called the King of the Beasts, but I am more
powerful than you are. I can prove it, too. Let’s fight and see who wins.” The lion agreed.

The mosquito quickly swooped down at the lion and bit him again and again on his nose and ears. While
trying to crush the mosquito, the lion clawed himself with his sharp nails, drawing blood.

“Enough,” he finally cried. “Enough! You win!”

Unharmed, the mosquito buzzed away. He boasted of his victory over the lion to anyone who would
listen. He was so busy boasting that he flew straight into a spider’s web strung between the trees.

As a tiny spider hurried towards him, the mosquito struggles helplessly in the strong threads of the web.

“I fought and won against the greatest of beasts,” he thought sadly. “only to be devoured by one less
powerful than I am!”

The Wind and The Sun

The wind and the sun argured about which of them was the strongest. The
wind said, “I am so power full that I can blow all the clouds out of the sky.” The
sun said, “I am more power full because I can heat up the sea below and this
will produce many more clouds.”

For along time the sun and the wind went on arguing. Just then, they saw
a boy walking along the road below. He was wearing a coat the wind suddenly
had an idea. He said, “Let’s see who can get the coat off that boy’s back.” The
sun agreed.

The wind starten first. He blew as hard as the could. He blew from behind
and he blew from in front of the boy. The hearder he blew, the more tightly the
boy held on to his coat to keep it from blowing away. After a while, the wind
gave up.

Then, it was the suns trun. It came out from behind the clouds and shone
on the boy. The boy felt warm. After that, it began to get hotter and hotter.
Soon, the boy could hot stand the heat any longer. He took his coat off. The sun

The Legend of Toba Lake

Once upon a time, there was a fisherman lived in a North Sumatra. When he was fishing in a
river. This fish had gold color all over its body. He imagined a delicious dinner in his head. He
put the fish in his basket and went home happily.
When he got home, he put the fish in a sink. But when he almost killed it, he saw the fish eyes
and felt pity. He put the fish in washbasin and added water in it. “Don’t worry, I wouldn’t kill
you” the fisherman said.
The fisherman went fishing again. But this time he couldn’t get any fish. He took a peep and
surprised when he saw a beautiful girl cooked in his house. The fisherman entered the room.
“Who are you?” he asked the girl.
“I’m the fish. You didn’t kill me and I’m very thankful. I will return your kindness.” The girl
“That’s ok. I didn’t ask any return” the fisherman said.
“But I have to.”The girl insisted.
“Well, I lived alone. I don’t have family. If you want to be my wife, I will be very happy.” The
fisherman asked the girl.
The girl smiled and said “I’d love to but you have to promise me that if we have kid you can’t
tell him about me.”
And so, the fisherman and the fish girl were married. And then they had a child called Samo.
Samo was very naughty.
One day Samo was asked to deliver lunch to his father. On his way, he met his friends and forgot
to deliver his father’s lunch. Samo played with his friends. When he was tired and hungry, he
was resting under a tree and ate his father lunch. Meanwhile his father waited him in starve and
tired. His father went home and saw Samo played. “Where is my lunch?” he asked.
“Mmm…mm.. I ate it” Samo said afraid.
“Why you ate it?” his father asked.
“Mmm..mm.. I was hungry after playing with my friend” Samo said.

“You were told to deliver my lunch but you didn’t listen.” his father was very furious. “I can’t
handle you anymore. You are very naughty. Go away from me. Don’t come home anymore.” His
father yelled and evicted Samo from his house.

And this what happened if you can’t control your mouth when you angry. His father said the
words that he wouldn’t suppose to say. “You… fish’s son.”
Suddenly, the sky was getting dark and the storm was breaking the ears. And then the water
came out from the land and getting harder. Sumo’s mother was very sad. “I told you don’t tell
him about me” she said to her husband. “Now I’m going back to be fish again” the mother was
transformed magically to be gold fish again. The water was getting higher and drown the village
and formed a lake.
Meanwhile, sumo run to the hill and stayed there. The hill then was surrounded by the lake.
Now the lake was known as Toba Lake. Toba came from Tuba word means no mercy. And the
hill in the middle called Samosir Island.

Beauty & the Beast

Long ago there lived a merchant. He lost all his wealth and became poor. He had six daughters,
five of whom were very selfish. The youngest was called Beauty as she was sweet and lovely.

The five sisters were very lazy and complained most of the time. It was Beauty who did all the
housework. There came a pleasant message for the merchant one day. The message said that one
of his ships with all kinds of riches had come to port. The five sisters asked their father to leave
immediately and get them all the clothes and jewels. Beauty wanted him to get just a rose.

After traveling for one and a half days, the merchant reached the port only to be told that pirates
have sunk his ship. Dejected, he started home with nothing to gift his daughters. As he was
traveling, he saw a huge castle, which looked like a home of very wealthy. Very tired, he went
towards the castle.

Finding no one, the merchant went inside the castle. After the merchant felt sleepy. He got into
the bedroom and fell asleep on a large and comfortable bed.
The merchant awoke the next morning and walked into the castle garden. Amongst lovely
flowers he spotted a beautiful rose bush. He was reminded of his daughter Beauty's wish. As he
broke off a lovely rose to gift her daughter, he heard a terrifying noise. He looked up and found
an ugly man with the face of a beast. The beast shouted "Are you repaying for the food and
shelter by taking a prize rose? You are very ungrateful." "Forgive me. I shall repay in the best
way I can," pleaded the merchant.

"Take these things and go. But send one of your daughters to keep the house for me. If you fail
to send, you shall die," warned the Beast. The merchant took the gifts, thanked the Beast.

He loved his daughters very much and was not willing to send anyone to live in that castle. He
thought he would definitely die. He reached home and told the story to his daughters. Beauty
offered to go.

Though initially Beauty was frightened of the Beast, she found him to be very kind. He arranged
for Beauty a lovely room that overlooked the garden. He offered her lovely clothes and stayed
out of her way so that Beauty would feel free.

One day, in the garden, he expressed his love for her and his intentions of getting married to her.
In a gently tone, Beauty told him that he was very kind.

"You may be ugly, but you are kind and gentle. That is very important to me" said Beauty.

A miracle followed. The Beast changed into a handsome Prince. Beauty could not believe her
eyes. He kissed her and narrated how a wicked witch cast a spell over him, changing him into a
Beast, until a beautiful young girl promised to marry him.
The Prince married Beauty and there was great joy in the land. Beauty and all live happily for the
rest of their lives.

The Tea Plant

The tea plant is an evergreen of the Camellia family that is native to China, Tibet
and northern India. There are two main varieties of the tea plant. The small leaf variety,
known as Camellia sinensis, thrives in the cool, high mountain regions of central China
and Japan. The broad leaf variety, known as Camellia assamica, grows best in the moist,
tropical climates found in Northeast India and the Szechuan and Yunnan provinces of
China. The plant produces dark green, shiny leaves and small, white blossoms.

According to an old Chinese saying, "superior tea comes from high mountains".
The altitude and mountain mists help shield against too much sunlight and provide the
proper temperature and humidity to allow the leaves to develop slowly and remain tender.
As with wine, the quality and taste of a particular tea is influenced by both the
environment (soil, climate, and altitude) and the tea maker (who decides when and how
the leaf is plucked and how it is processed).

Most tea plants have a growth phase and a dormant period, usually during the
winter. The leaves are plucked as the new tea shoots (or "flush") emerge. In hotter
climates, the plants have several flushes and can be picked year-round. In cooler
conditions at higher elevations, there is a distinct harvesting season. Leaves from the
earlier flushes, usually in the spring, give the finest quality teas.

There are four main types of tea: green tea, black tea, oolong tea and white tea. All
of them comes from the same plant. The specific variety of tea plant and the way the
leaves are processed after harvesting determine the type of tea that is created.

Little Red Riding Hood

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest.
Whenever she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village
called her Little Red Riding Hood.

One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her
grandmother as it had been awhile since they'd seen each other. "That's a good idea," her
mother said. "Remember, go straight to Grandma's house," her mother cautioned. "Don't
dawdle along the way and please don't talk to strangers! The woods are
dangerous." "Don't worry, mommy," said Little Red Riding Hood, "I'll be careful."

But when Little Red Riding Hood noticed some lovely flowers in the woods, she
forgot her promise to her mother. She picked a few. Little Red Riding Hood was enjoying
the warm summer day so much, that she didn't notice a dark shadow approaching out of
the forest behind her...Suddenly, the wolf appeared beside her. "What are you doing out
here, little girl?" the wolf asked in a voice as friendly as he could muster. "I'm on my way
to see my Grandma who lives through the forest, near the brook," Little Red Riding Hood

The wolf, in the meantime, took a shortcut...The wolf, arrived at Grandma's and
knocked lightly at the door. "Oh thank goodness dear! Come in, come in! I was worried
sick that something had happened to you in the forest," said Grandma thinking that the
knock was her granddaughter. The wolf let himself in. Poor Granny did not have time to
say another word, before the wolf gobbled her up! The wolf let out a satisfied burp. A
few minutes later, Red Riding Hood knocked on the door. The wolf jumped into bed and
pulled the covers over his nose. "Who is it?" he called in a lady like voice. “It’s me, Little
Red Riding Hood." "Oh how lovely! Do come in, my dear," croaked the wolf. When
Little Red Riding Hood entered the little cottage, she could scarcely recognize her

"The better to see you with, my dear," replied the wolf. But Grandmother! What
big teeth you have," said Little Red Riding Hood her voice quivering slightly. "The better
to eat you with, my dear," roared the wolf and he leapt out of the bed and began to chase
the little girl. Almost too late, Little Red Riding Hood realized that the person in the bed
was not her Grandmother, but a hungry wolf. She ran across the room and through the
door, shouting, "Help! Wolf!" as loudly as she could. You've learned an important lesson.
Thank goodness you shouted loud enough for this kind woodsman to hear you!" Little
Red Riding Hood and her Grandmother had a nice lunch and a long chat.

B. She forgot the way home

Butterflies are insects. A butterfly’s lifecycle is made up of four parts, egg, larva
(caterpillars), pupa (chrysalis) and adult. Butterflies attach their eggs to leaves with
special glue. Most caterpillars are plant eaters (herbivores). Fully grown caterpillars
attach themselves to a suitable twig or leaf before shedding their outside layer of skin to
reveal a hard skin underneath known as a chrysalis.

An adult butterfly will eventually emerge from the chrysalis where it will wait a
few hours for its wings to fill with blood and dry, before flying for the first time.
Butterflies can live in the adult stage from anywhere between a week and a year,
depending on the species.

Butterflies have four wings. Butterflies often have brightly coloured wings with
unique patterns made up of tiny scales. Most butterflies feed on nectar from flowers.
Butterflies have taste receptors on their feet.

Scientists estimate that there are between 15000 and 20000 different species of butterfly.
Bird wing butterflies have large, angular wings and fly in a similar way to birds. Monarch
butterflies are known for their long migration. Every year monarch butterflies will travel
a great distance (sometimes over 4000 km), females will lay eggs and a new generation
of monarchs will travel back, completing the cycle.

Last year, I spent my vacation in my aunt’s house. She lives in behind one of the hills in
boyolali. I went there with my brother, Doni. We took a bus from Bogor and got off at Solo bus
station. My aunt had waited for us there. She then took us to her house in Selo.This place is
famous for its beautiful scenery. Selo is between the bottom of the foot of Mount Merapi and
Merbabu. This area is a natural tourist area with views of the mountains in the north and south

The journey to Selo was thrilling. We had to climb the hill. The street was twisted here and there.
Moreover, it was foggy that afternoon. So, I could only see few meters in front of me. Luckily,
my aunt was a good driver. She did it very well.

We arrived at my aunt’s house at seven o’clock in the evening. The place was completely dark. It
was also very cold. Doni and I refused to take a bath although my aunt said she had prepared hot
water for us.

At night, we went to one of the hills there. There was an offering ceremony. The villagers
offered a buffalo head for the Mount Merapi. People were dancing and singing during the
ceremony. They wore Javanese costumes. Doni and I enjoyed the performance. We were very
thick jackets because it was very cold.

He is still one of the most recognizable men on earth. And decades after he burst upon
the scene as a gold medal winner at the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Italy, Muhammad Ali
remains ainagical figure, known and loved throughout the world.
Ali brought new speed and grace to his sport, and his charm and wit changed forever
what we expect a champion to be. His accomplishments in the ring were the stuff of legend :
two fights with Sonny Liston, where he proclaimed himself "The Greatest" and proved he
was three ambitious wars with Joe Frazier; the stunning victory over George Foreman in
Zaire; and dethroning Leon Spinks to become heavyweight champion for the third time. But
there was always far more to Muhammad Ali than what took place in a boxing ring.
His early embrace of the Nation of Islam and his insistence on being called
Muhammad Ali instead of his "slave name," Cassius Clay, introduced a new era in black
pride. His refusal to be inducted into the United States army anticipated the growing antiwar
movement of the 1960s. And his willingness to stage his fights in different countries such as
Kinshasa, Zaire; Manila, Philippines; and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; signaled a shift away
from super power dominances toward a growing awareness of the importance of the third
Today, Ali is a deeply religious man who causes feeling of love and respect wherever
he travels.

Once upon a time, there were three young brothers who lived with their father in a
small village. Their father was old and always sick. The old man knew that he was not
going to live for long, so he tried to split his wealth for his sons.
"Listen, sons. I'm going to leave you this small hut and that small farm land out
there for all of you. The buffalo is for you, Kirno," said the old man to his first son.
"What about me, Father?" asked Beno, the second son.
"You can take care of our plough," said the old man.
"And you my little son, I give you this small bag of rice seed." "Thank you, Father,"
said Gito, the third son.
"All of you can change your destiny with all the things I give you. However , you
must help each other and remember that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west,"
muttered the old man.
Those were the last words from the old man to his sons. Few hours later, the old man
passed away.
A day after the old man died, Kirno went to the market to sell his buffalo. Gito ran
after him, trying to remind him about their father's will which asked them to help each
But Kirno ignored him. Beno also sold the plough and enjoyed the money himself.
Kirno and Beno did not hi ng but spent their money.
Gito was very upset. But he wanted to become a good farmer Like his father. So, he
borrowed a plough from his neighbour. He had to plough the farm land by himself because he
did not have any buffaloes. He worked so hard from the sun rose until the sun set.
After seven years of working hard, Gito became a successful farmer. But he was
not happy because he kept thinking of his brothers. He looked for his brothers everywhere,
but still he could not find them.
One day, Gito went down to town to buy some farming equipment. When he was about to
leave the shop, a beggar asked him for some money and a pickpocket was trying to take his
wallet. These people were actually Gito's brothers. Gito recognized them at the first place.
Feeling very happy, Gito quickly hugged them.
In the end, Gito told them that he had become a successful farmer. He also invited
them to stay in his house. Kirno and Beno felt ashamed to Gito. They realized that they had
done a terrible mistake in the past.

A long time ago, the ancient land of Sunda was ruled by a king and queen who had but a single daughter.
Her name was Dayang Sumbi. She was beautiful and clever but also pampered and spolited.
One day as she was weaving in her pavilion, she became moody and distracted, which caused her to
keep dropping her shuttle on the floor. Once when it fell she exclaimed she would marry the one who
gave it back to her. At that very moment her dog Tumang, a demigod possessing magic powers, came up
to her with the shuttle in his mouth. Dayang Sumbi had to marry him.

They lived happily together, and Dayang Sumbi gave birth to a baby boy, human in appearance but
endowed with his father’s magic powers. She named him Sangkuriang. As the boy grew up, he was
always guarded by the faithful dog Tumang, whom he knew only as a companion and not as his father,
Sangkuriang became handsome and brave.

One day his mother asked him to go hunting with the dog and bring her venison for a feast. After hunting
all day without success, Sangkuriang worried about facing his mother empty-handed. Desperate, he took
an arrow and shot the dog. He returned home and handed over the meat to his pleased mother. Soon
after the feast, however, Dayang Sumbi questioned her son about the absence of Tumang. At first he
evaded her queries but finally told her what had happened. She was horrified and struck her son so hard
on the temple that he collapsed. For that, the old king banished his daughter from the court and she was
made to roam around the kingdom. Sangkuriang recovered with a large scar on his temple, and he too
left the court to wander about the world.

Years later, Sangkuriang met a beautiful woman and instantly fell in love with her. It was his own mother-
they did not recognize each other. He pro posed to her and she agreed to marry him. On the day before
the wedding, as she was caressing her fiancee’s hair, Dayang Sumbi detected the scar on the temple.
Horror struck her, for she was about to marry her own son, Sangkuriang. Without revealing the whole
truth to him, she tried unsuccessfully to dissuade him. Desperate to avoid the marriage, she set
conditions she thought impossible to meet. Sangkuriang had to make a lake that filled the whole valpley
and build a boat for the couple to sail in, all before dawn.

Sangkuriang started to work. His love gave him extraordinary strength, and he used his magic powers to
summon the spirits to help him. With boulders and mud they dammed the river in the valley and the water
rose and began to form a lake. In the early morning hours he chopped down a huge tree in the forest and
began hollowing it out to make a boat. When Dayang Sumbi saw that he was about to accomplish what
she has thought impossible, she called on the gods to bring the sun up early and thwart Sangkuriang.

The cock crowed, the sun rose much earlier than usual, and Sangkuriang realized he had been deceived.
In a fit of fury he caused Dayang Sumbi and kicked the half-finished boat back into the forest. There it lies
upside down today, forming the mountain Tangkuban Perahu (Upturned Boat). Not far away is the stump
of the tree Sangkuriang had felled, now called Bukit Tinggi. The dam Sangkuriang had built caused the
valley to become a lake, where both Sangkuriang and Dayang Sumbi drowned themselves. They were
never heard of again.
