My Most Unforgettable Holiday

In 2015, I went to Derawan Island with my friends and that marks my most memorable holiday ever!

In June, our school was having summer holiday, so we thought to ourselves that it shouldn't go to waste. We quickly browsed the internet to find a good holiday destination and after an hour of heated debate, the four of us agreed to give Derawan Island a try. It was purely out of curiosity as none of us had been there before.

We arrived at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at 05.30 a.m. as the flight was at 07.00 a.m. First, we flew to Balikpapan and waited for about an hour to continue the flight to Berau. As soon as we touched down in Berau, my friend called the tour agent that we had contacted earlier in Jakarta. They had got a car ready to take us to Labuan Batu. From Labuan Batu, we took a speedboat for about an hour to Derawan Island. It was such a long trip to Derawan but it all paid off as soon as we saw how beautiful the island was.

My friends and I were quickly ushered to our rooms in the resort. It was fantastic! The rooms were in a cottage that was situated right above the sea. So we only had to step out the terrace to find ourselves out in the open sea! After unpacking our luggage and washing up, we went to the dining hall to grab our dinner. The dinner was only simple seafood dishes. The surrounding totally enhanced the dining experience, making the food taste much better.

The following day, we took a speedboat tour, hopping from one island to another Our first trip stop was Kakaban Island where we hiked to reach the lake and swam among stingless jellyfish. The last time I heard, there were only three places in the world that have stingless jellyfish; two of them in Indonesia! Isn't that great? The next stop was the Sangalaki Island where we got to visit sea turtle conservation and took lots of pictures with sea turtle babies. They were so cute!

Our last stop was the Maratua Island where we were able to feed fish and see a three- legged sea turtle. The three-legged sea-turtle wasn't born that way. We were told that it was swimming in the open sea when it was still a baby then its leg got caught in plastic trash and couldn't grow even when the sea-turtle reached adulthood. One of the island's guards saw the sea- turtle and saved it. He also untangled the plastic trash that bound the sea-turtle's leg but it was too late. Since then, the sea-turtle is kept in a special space next to the resort in Maratua Island and the guards take turns feeding it to ensure its survival. This is why we should never litter and endanger other creatures! After Maratua Island, we headed back to Derawan Island to catch a late dinner and turned in.

The following morning, we wake up early and ate our breakfast in the dining room. Then, the driver drove us back to the airport so we could catch a flight back to Jakarta. We arrived at Jakarta, exhausted but terribly happy! It was the most unforgettable trip I have ever experienced so far!

Try the following tips
1. Stay out of the sun during peak hours. While these times may vary slightly depending on the season and where you live. You should be indoors if all possible between 10:00 and 15:00.

2. Keep covered up. Floppy hats and large umbrellas work well and so do cover-ups. Long- sleeved cotton shirts are excellent for hiking, cycling etc.; see your sports store for special brands that allow breathing as well as cover-up.

3. Use sunscreen on any exposed areas. An SPF of 45+ is recommended for it allows even the fairest skinned folks to stay out in the sun for a few hours before reapplying. Try chopstick on your lips. Follow the instructions on sunscreen carefully. Always reapply after leaving the water, as it’ll have washed off.

4. Don’t forget hard-to-reach places. Don’t forget to cover the backs of your knees, back of your neck, elbows and back of your ears (if you have short hair). Feet should also be included if you are wearing sandals, flip-flops or going bare-foot. Even these places can hurt a lot with sunburn.

5. Don’t lie in the sun purposefully seeking a tan. This is not only damaging to your skin but might burn you the first few times you try it at the beginning of the season. If you want to tan, do it gradually and sensibly, with short exposure and building up over time.

The following text is for questions 32-34

School uniform is special clothes worn by all students of a particular school. The uniform of a school may differ from others. Why should schools use uniforms? Below are some reasons.

First of all, Notre Dame’s Department of Sociology produced a study in 1998 concerning school uniforms. Their findings using 10th grade students showed that uniforms have no direct effect on “substance abuse, behavioral problems or attendance.” It also claimed a negative effect on student achievements for those students considered ‘pro-school’.

Secondly, uniform helps to create a strong sense school ethos and a sense of belonging to a particular community. As such it promotes discipline and helps to drive up academic standards, which is why a uniform is often adopted by schools which are being reopened with a fresh start after being classified as failing.

Finally, uniform acts as a social leveler, under which all students are equal in the eyes of the school and of each other. In institutions without uniform students are often competitive and worry endlessly about their appearance and the clothes they should wear. Pupils without expensive designer clothes and trainers may be singled out as social outcasts, or stigmatized as being from poor backgrounds. For these reasons many parents prefer uniforms as they save them money on buying clothes for school wear. Considering the findings, schools should implement the uniform as their identity. The government should also publish some kind of rule which makes uniform compulsory for schools.

32. What is the writer position toward the text?
A. The writer gives some reason why the uniform helps smart students. 
B. The writer doesn’t agree to the rule of uniform
C. The writer elaborates the reasons of the uniform as the special clothes. 
D. The writer does not support the government rule
E. The writer makes the compulsory for school.

33. “As such it promotes discipline and helps to drive up academic standards …” (Paragraph 3). What does the word it refer to?
A. Community
B. School ethos
C. Research finding
D. A study
E. Wearing uniform

34. How many reasons are used to support the writer’s opinion?
A. One reason
B. Two reasons 
C. Three reasons 
D. Four reasons 
E. Five reasons

The following text is for questions 35-38

Recycling is important in today’s world if we want to leave this planet for our future generations. It is good for the environment, since we are making new products from the old products which are of no use to us. There are many reasons why it’s important to recycle as much as possible.

Making new products out of recycled materials reduces the need to consume precious resources. So recycling helps protect raw materials and protect natural habitats for the future.

Using recycling materials in the manufacturing process uses considerably less energy than that required for producing new products from raw materials.

Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy, it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.

There are over 1,500 landfill sites in the UK and, in 2001, these sites produced a quarter of the UK’s emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that is released as the biodegradable waste (such as food and paper) decomposes. Existing landfill sites are filling up fast and there is very limited space for new ones.

A massive reduction in the amount of waste we send to landfill is required if we are to avoid the heavy fines and the landfill taxes that are being imposed by Central Government on councils that exceed their landfill allowances. Increases in your Council Tax or service cuts in other areas would be the only way of paying these penalties.

35. What does the text highlight?
A. Reasons to recycle.
B. Conserving the energy.
C. Protecting the environment.
D. Environmental construction.
E. Saving money through recycling.

36. We know from the text that ... if we recycle.
A. landfill sites will decrease
B. climate change will continue
C. more new products will be reduced
D. natural habitats will never be affected
E. air and water pollution will be affected

37. ”Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution.”

Based on this quote, we conclude that the writer is telling us that ….
A. recycling saves us money 
B. recycling reduce landfill 
C. recycling saves energy
D. recycling conserves raw materials
E. recycling helps protect the environment

38. Recycling reduces the need for extracting ... it reduces pollution.
A. because
B. after 
C. where 
D. but
E. so
