People Who Inspired Me

Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai  born 12 July 1997 is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate.She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Her advocacy has grown into an international movement.

The most famous event for her that occurred recently was the Taliban shooting on October 9, 2012, when 15-year-old Malala was riding a bus with friends on their way home from school, a masked gunman boarded the bus and demanded to know which girl was Malala. When her friends looked toward Malala, her location was given away. The gunman fired at her, hitting Malala in the left side of her head; the bullet then traveled down her neck. Two other girls were also injured in the attack.

The shooting left Malala in critical condition, so she was flown to a military hospital in Peshawar. A portion of her skull was removed to treat her swelling brain. To receive further care, she was transferred to Birmingham, England.

Once she was in the United Kingdom, Yousafzai was taken out of a medically induced coma. Though she would require multiple surgeries—including repair of a facial nerve to fix the paralyzed left side of her face — she had suffered no major brain damage. In March 2013, she was able to begin attending school in Birmingham.

The shooting resulted in a massive outpouring of support for Yousafzai, which continued during her recovery. Unfortunately, the Taliban still considers Yousafzai a target, although Yousafzai remains a staunch advocate for the power of education.

Although Her bravery was remarkably astonishing it wasn't just an on the spot thought process,before she was already a well known activist giving speech about the women's rights in education for examples are like after the Taliban began attacking girls' schools in Swat, Malala gave a speech in Peshawar, Pakistan, in September 2008. The title of her talk was, "How dare the Taliban take away my basic right to education?"

In early 2009, Yousafzai began blogging for the BBC about living under the Taliban's threats to deny her an education. In order to hide her identity, she used the name Gul Makai. However she was revealed to be the BBC blogger in December of that year.

With a growing public platform, Yousafzai continued to speak out about her right, and the right of all women, to an education. Her activism resulted in a nomination for the International Children's Peace Prize in 2011. That same year, she was awarded Pakistan's National Youth Peace Prize.

Nine months after being shot by the Taliban, Malala Yousafzai gave a speech at the United Nations on her 16th birthday in 2013. Yousafzai highlighted her focus on education and women's rights, urging world leaders to change their policies.

Yousafzai said that following the attack, “the terrorists thought that they would change our aims and stop our ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage were born.”

She also urged action against illiteracy, poverty and terrorism:

“The extremists were, and they are, afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women... Let us pick up our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons.”

In October 2014, at age 17 Malala Yousafzai became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Nobel along with Indian children's rights activist Kailash Satyarthi. Malala was first nominated for the prize in 2013 but did not win; she was renominated in March 2014.

In congratulating Yousafzai, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said: “She is (the) pride of Pakistan, she has made her countrymen proud. Her achievement is unparalleled and unequaled. Girls and boys of the world should take lead from her struggle and commitment." Former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described Malala as "a brave and gentle advocate of peace who, through the simple act of going to school, became a global teacher.”


Why She is my Inspiration?
In my own opinion, she inspires me because of her act for hope,that women too can also have the rights to learn in today education, that actually those people holding the potential back are afraid to see that we are actually powerful with knowledge, as the saying "Knowledge is power" will always be true in today's society

In this game we must repeat what other said before, then mentioned a new word.

Telaga Warna



Telaga Warna

The Color Changing Lake


Indonesia have alot of amazing place, and one of them is Dieng's Telaga Warna. Dieng Plateau has a million dazzling beauties, with an extraordinary natural and cultural wealth. In this region, in addition to shady green trees and beautifully patterned Hindu temples. And in here there also a natural gift which became the icon of this area, a lake called Telaga Warna, the Colorful Lake.

Telaga Warna located at the Kejajar District in WonosoboCentral Java. This beautiful lake with its surrounding natural forest is one of the prime tourist destinations in the Wonosobo regency. To reach this lake from Wonosobo, it is an approximately 25 miles’ drive.

The harmony of nature with its clean, cool air makes the atmosphere at Telaga Warna Dieng very compelling and relaxing. The mystical atmosphere created by the white mist that envelopes the area, as well as the tall, shady trees which surround the lake, exude a feeling of refined calm and relaxation. If we don't passing and witnessing the beauty of Telaga Warna in person, the visit wom't be complete. From here we can also visit the Pengilon Lake, Goa Semar, Goa Jaran, and the Sikendang Crater.


This Lake is appropriately named Telaga Warna due to a natural phenomenon that causes the water of the lake to change in fluctuating colors. At times it is green, yellow, purple or even taking the colors of the rainbow. This phenomenon occurs because of the high sulfur content in these waters, so that when the sun hits the water, it reflects in varied colors. You can also see around the center of the lake, a section of water which appears to be bubbling; which is also due to its high sulfur content.


But based on the folktale, Telaga Warna is from the  neklace of princess. King and Queen loved their daughter so much. They gave what ever she wanted. It made Princess a very spoiled girl. When her wish couldn’t be realized, she became very angry. She even said bad things often. A true princess wouldn’t do that. Even though the princess behaved badly, her parents loved her, so did the people in that kingdom. Day by day, the princess grew more beautiful. No girls could compare with her. In a few days, Princess would be 17 years old. So, people of that kingdom went to palace. They brought many presents for her. Their presents gift were very beautiful. King collected the presents. There were really many presents. Then the King stored them in a building. Some times he could take them to give to his people. The King only took some gold and jewels to make the most beautiful neklace in the world. But the princess said the necklace was ugly. the people of the kingdom was sad and cried. The tears of the kingdom was the start of Telaga Warna, and the lake became colorful because the jewelry from the people of the Kingdom.

Hidden among the range of hills at an altitude of more than 2,000 meters above sea level, it does not make Telaga Warna (the Colorful Lake) lacking in visitors. Its beauty and mystery have attracted many visitors to Dieng. The water at most times appears calm, with no ripples at all. The sound of the wild birds chirping and the well preserved, wild forest creates a reassuring atmosphere of peace.
Telaga Warna is also very useful for the community. They use the water of the lake as a source to irrigate their potato and cabbage plantations which are major produce of this region.

How To Get There
If you want to get there the easiest way to get to Dieng plateau is by car. It is located in Central Java, around a three hour drive from Yogya or only 25 km from Wonosobo
It is advisable to leave for the plateau early to reach the site before noon. Because of the altitude, the plateau is often covered in mist by early afternoon.
By public transport, you can take a bus from Yogya to Magelang and change for Wonosobo. From Wonosobo, take a minibus to the village of Dieng. The sites on the plateau can be reached on foot from the village of Dieng. If you are driving, parking is available near the main sites.

Hallasan National Park



There are alot of interesting place in this world, and now I will tell you about one of them. Hallasan National Park, South Korea. A very interesting place to go hiking!



Hallasan National Park located in the province of Jeju-do, South Korea. Hallasan is the highest mountain in South Korea, standing at 1950 meters (6400 ft). The Park Located at the center of Jeju Island, so we can see the peak from almost all places on Jeju. It also a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

Hallasan National Park has 5 hiking routes. There are 5 entry points. Northwest Entrance Eorimok, Southwest Entrance Yeongshil, South Entrance Donnaeko, East Entrance Seongpanak, and North Entrance Gwaneumsa. But Donnaeko gate closed since 1994. All trails are relatively short (less than 10 km) and can be hiked in less than a day. But if you want to reach the summit (Baekrokdam) you can start in the morning, but dont forget to check to check the official operating hours, some trails only open at certian hour of the day.

Hallasan National have 2 trail that go to the summit. Gwaneumsa Trail, the summit trail. Gwaneumsa Trail offers hikers the best view of Hallasan’s deep valleys and stunning terrain. Midway along the trail is Guringul (a lava cave) and Tamna Valley. Tamna Valley is especially beautiful during the fall when the leaves are changing and during the winter when the entire area lays under a dusting of snow. Then another summit trail, Seongpanak Trail. This relatively long, gently sloping trail is perfect for beginners. Lush broadleaf trees give shade from the beating sun and in spring the azaleas bloom and turn the mountainside into a dazzling array of color.
