International Day of Peace #2

Time to show-off 😀

Friday night, October 4th was a special moment for Female English Home members since we have an unforgettable performance in English Performance Show (EPS). We were showing our talent and presenting a poster. The EPS’ theme for this month is about “Peace Day”. In the previous post, we have shared about spreading “peace message through flower”, that was the series of our events on commemorating the International day of peace.

Three weeks before the performance day, we were asked to do a citizen journalism project. We had to interview three different people from different background. We had to ask them about the meaning of peace based on their opinions and how to gain peace in their lives. The most interesting part is that one of the interviewee should be a native speaker/foreigner. That’s why we had to go to Malioboro street to interview the foreigner. Thanks God we could find two foreigners in Sosrowijayan street which is located near Malioboro street.


Beside, we were offered by the committee to perform something in EPS night. Fio agreed to sing a song and July agreed to read a poem. They would do musicalization of poetry featuring Inoy as a guitar player. Inoy is a member of Jogja English Course and Community. We only rehearsed the song and poetry for three days since we were so busy with our own activities.

Finally, the EPS night has come, Continue reading


International Day of Peace #1

 “Say it with Flowers”

Last week we commemorated the International Day of Peace. This year, 2013, the International Day of Peace was on a Saturday, September 21st. Special activities and celebrations took place all across the world over the Peace Day Weekend, including festivals, concerts, and much more. As one of the community in Jogjakarta, English Home also took a part on celebrating the International Day of Peace. In collaboration with Jogja English, we spread “Peace Message” through flowers.

At 8.00 a.m the members of English Home and Jogja English Community gathered in Jogja English office. Unfortunately there were only few members who have come: Rini, Indah, Inoy, Zean, Vita, and Devi. While waiting for the other members, we took some pictures.
