Narrative
Read the text to answer question 46
and 47

Long ago on the top of Mount Kinabalu in


Borneo, there lived a dragon. He owned a
large and beautiful pearl. People believed
that he controlled the weather with it.
The emperor of Chine heard this and
wanted the pearl. He sent his two sons,
Wee Ping and Wee San to Borneo to steal it.
The princes, together with one hundred
soldier, set sail for Borneo in twelve sailing
junks.

One day Dayang sumbi was quilting when


suddenly, her quilt fell off from her house.
Then she prayed to God, If a man picks up
my quilt, he will be my husband. If a
woman, she will be my sister. Then, a male
dog picked it up. For keeping her words,
Dayang Sumbi married the dog and called
him Tumang. Dayang Sumbi gave birth to a
baby, named him Sangkuriang, but he
never told him who his father was.

When they arrived in Borneo they set out


immediately to find the famous mountain.
Their journey up the rugged slopes of
mount Kinabalu proved very difficult. The
dragon guarded his cave very fiercely and
killed many of their soldiers.
Then Wee San had clever idea. He climbed
a tall tree, so he could see the dragons
cave. He noted what time the dragon left
his cave to hunt for food and what time he
returned to it.

One day, Sangkuriang was hunting with


Tumang in the forest, and he found nothing.
He blamed Tumang for his failure and killed
him. When dayang Sumbi knew that, she
hit Sangkuriangs head with a big spoon
and asked him to go.

Next he ordered his men to make a fake


pearl and a large kite. He waited until the
dragon left his cave. Then he placed the
fake pearl in a bag, slung it across his
shoulder and flew up to the mountain-top
on the kite. He exchanged the real pearl for
the fake one and then his brother pulled his
kite back to the ground.
The brothers quickly returned to their ships
and set sail for China. They sailed safely
home. The Emperor was thrilled with the
pearl and gave a big party to celebrate his
sons return.

A. An emperor from
china

and an old beautiful woman was in the
house. The woman, dayang Sumbi,
recognized the adventurer as sangkuriang.
Sangkuriang forced her to marry him and
Dayang Sumbi asked him to make a vast
boat in one night. In the night, Sangkuriang
called his friends, ghosts and forest fairies
to help him. Dayang Sumbi feared the boat
could be finished on time, so she asked
some women nearby to help her. The
women hit the grains with grain puncher to
make noise which disturbed the ghosts and
the fairies. The ghosts and the fairies ran
away
before
completing
the
boat.
Sangkuriang was very angry. He kicked
away the boat upside down, and it turned
into a mountain called Tangkuban Perahu. It
means the downside boat, which stood in
the north of Bandung.

geological area where the earthquakes


happen. These three kinds of earthquake

geological strength created by moving of

when the volcano produces acidic lava,
which drys quickly, when it drys quickly it
blocks the top of the volcano. This make no
more magma can escape. Pressure starts to
build up and eventually the acidic lava can
no longer stand the pressure. So the
volcano is free to explode, the pressure is
released so fast that an earthquake is
caused. A volcanic earthquake is usually
kept within 10-20 miles of the volcano.
Explosion earthquakes are the result of the
collapse earthquakes that are small
earthquakes occurring in underground
mines and caverns.
