The Legend Of Banyuwangi


Once upon a time, there was a local ruler named King
Sulahkromo. The king had a Prime Minister named Raden
Sidopekso. The Prime Minister had a wife named Sri Tanjung. She
was so beautiful that the king wanted her to be his wife.
One day, the King sent his Prime Minister to a long mission.
While the Prime Minister was away, the King tried to get Sri
Tanjung. However he failed. He was very angry. Thus, when
Sidopekso went back, the King told him that his wife was
unfaithful to him. The Prime Minister was very angry with his
wife. Sri Tanjung said that it was not true. However, Sidopekso
said that he would kill her.
He brought her to the river bank. Before he kill her and threw
her into the river, she said that her innocence would be proven
After Sidopekso killed her, he threw her dead body into the dirty
river.
The river immediately became clean and began to spread a
wonderful fragrance. Sidopekso said, "Banyu...Wangi...
Banyuwangi". This means "fragrant water". Banyuwangi was
born from the proof of noble and sacred love.

TIME
ORDER

Even though high school and college are both places of learning,
they differ in at least three ways. The first difference between high
school and college is their social atmospheres. In high school the
building is usually smaller, so most students know each other. In
addition, students in high school have the same six-hour 7:40 to
2:30 day, which helps them to know one another better. At college
people are constantly coming and going, rarely seeing the same
person twice in one day. The second difference between high school
and college is their policies about homework. In high school,
homework is usually. Knowing they have to submit assignments in
algebra or history makes students keep up with these subjects. In
college most homework consists of just studying; very little of it is
written and turned in. If students do their homework, it is to their
advantage; if they do not, the teachers will not force them to. The
student is only wasting his own money if he neglects his course
work. The third and last difference between high school and college
is their attendance policies. In high school, students must attend
class or their parents will be called. In college, students may skip
classes if they choose and refer to the syllabus to get missed
assignments or tests. It is the students responsibility to make work
up. In spite of these differences between high school and college,
they both serve the same purpose to prepare an individual for
the real world.
