My Holiday In Parangtritis Beach

   Last year, I and my family went to Parangtritis Beach. We went to Parangtritis Beach by my car. I was very excited to go there

  Our trip to Parangtritis beach spent time for 2 hours on the way. I slept in the bus during the trip. We arrived at 3 pm at Pangandaran Beach.. After that I and my family went to replace our clothes to swim and we walked to the beach together. There were so many activities that we did in the beach, such as swimming, water playing, chasing each other on the seashore, and banana boat riding. We played on the beach about 1 hour. Right at 5 pm, we all had a rest and prepared to go home. We felt family and togetherness atmosphere at that time. That moment is so unforgettable. 

  That was my short holiday in Parangtritis beach. But, I was very happy because that was my first experience to go to the beach

The Battle for Surabaya

   At the end of World War II many Indonesians believed that independence was imminent. Few realized that it would be another five years of fighting before the country became a fully independent republic. The area around the east Javanese town of Surabaya became the scene of some of the heaviest fighting, and the Battle of Surabaya, which cost the lives of many thousands of Indonesians, became a symbol of resistance to the re-imposition of Dutch colonial rule.  

   The future President Sukarno declared independence on 17 August 1945, and on 19 September, Dutch internees, with Japanese support, occupied the Oranje Hotel in Surabaya, and hoisted the Dutch flag. While this was taking place, young Indonesians were busily replacing Japanese flags in all the offices with Indonesian ones.

   When they heard what the Dutch had done, the Indonesians rushed to the hotel, and hand to hand fighting began with the Dutch, who were determined to defend their flag. Very soon shots were heard, and several people fell - both Dutch and Indonesian - as several Indonesian youths climbed the flagpole and ripped the blue stripe off the Dutch flag. 

   By the beginning of October, fierce fighting had broken out between the Indonesians and the Japanese, who refused to hand over their arms. The Indonesians managed to take possession of numerous buildings throughout Surabaya, and commandeered hundreds of cars and trucks to facilitate their movement throughout the town.
