Farewell, Mr. Coelho

You gave us new color. You taught us new stuff. You inspired us. We are thankful for your efforts in this semester.

The little farewell party held in Gedung Serba Guna FIB was attended by teachers and students from English Department. Those who came to this event got the chance to know Mr. Fabio Coelho a little bit closer as he told us few things about his personal life regarding education.

It is enlightening to listen the story from a man who has traveled across the world to teach, from kindergarten to university students. He had many incredible stories to share but time is the limitation. One thing we learn from him is that students in every corner of this earth have the same capability regardless the color of their skin and their culture. We are meant for something big, that was what he asserted.

We hope you have a bright future yourself, Mr. Coelho. Something big does not only come for these youngsters but also for people who have inspired a lot. We bid you adieu.

Warm regards,

Students of English Department Diponegoro University

Sahur On The Road

Ramadan does not feel right when you do not share something you have with other people. We do not get to ask for Allah’s grace without having done something meaningful to people around us. It is what we believe here in EDSA, that we should not let us enjoy Ramadan by ourselves.
SA, or known as Social Activist, is EDSA division which is responsible for Sahur On The Road. They managed to take care of everything we need as participant so we only had to follow their instructions and, bam, everybody is happy. May their effort be paid back in greater things.
It is a cheerful event even though we had to wake up around 1 o’clock in the morning to meet in rendezvous. Then each of us get a box of food to share. There were about 40 people who participated in this event and we started our journey from Simpang Lima Semarang.
It was a little bit emotional, giving people something that is useful to them. We wish, whatever they believe in, the virtue of Ramadan is always upon us because we know that this month is not just about ourselves.

EDSA

EXIST!

X-Men: Apocalypse Review

2016 seems to be a busy year for superhero movies. Now it’s the mutants in X-Men universe whotake the turn in their newest movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. This time, the story revolves around Apocalypse, who was believed as the first mutant on Earth, and was worshipped as a god back then. When he returned after being buried for thousands of years, he found out that the world had changed so much that he decided to change the world back to what he believed it should be. As a result, Raven, Professor X, and the young X-Men all had to fight him back in order to defeat his plan.

Although I’m not an avid fan of Marvel, especially the X-Men universe, I can say that this movie is amazing. The storyline is great: a balanced mix of myth, cultural life, fantasy, and technology. You can feel the Ancient Egypt atmosphere at one scene, then get into Professor Xavier’s well-known gadget, Cerebro, in the other scene, and eventually sense the suspense in the final fight between X-Men and Apocalypse.

The casts also give incredible performances, like James McAvoy as Professor Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, and Jennifer Lawrence as Raven/Mystique. Along with that,the new mutants like Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee), Scott Summers/Cyclops (Tye Sheridan), and Jean Grey/Phoenix (Sophie Turner) are great and add something new and fresh tothe X-Men franchise. I have to say that they picked the right casts to play their respective roles—especially Oscar Isaac as En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse, who portrayed the character brilliantly. Meanwhile, Bryan Singer as the director indeed delivers breathtaking aspects that will make you unable to leave your seat: the emotions, the visual effects, the fight scenes, every little details are amazing. It’s a complete package: action, drama, and a little bit touch of humor that will be fun to watch.

Probably the only flaw I felt while watching this movie was the pace of the story itself. It’s actually great, I’m not gonna lie, but sometimes the switch of scenes between each character confused me. But it’s actually normal since this movie has a lot of characters and it’s almost impossible to give each character the same screen time. As the time goes by, you’ll get used to it and start tounderstand the story. With the duration of 2 hours and 24 minutes, I’m sure you sure won’t takeyour eyes off this movie and enjoy every minute of it.

In the end, I highly recommend this movie for those who enjoy superhero movies. If you’re going to spend your weekend at the cinema, make sure you grab a seat for this movie!
