          The ancient town of Luang Prabang situated in northern Laos, sits on a peninsular at the confluence of two rivers, the Nam Khan and the famous, Mekong. Considered by many travellers and writers as being the heart of Laotian culture, the tiny town is encircled by mountains and is 700 metres above the sea level.
          Luang Prabang is Laos' premier tourist destination and Southeast Asia's most beautiful spot and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.
          Luang Prabang was the ancient royal capital of the LanXang Kingdom until King Pothisarat moved the administrative seat to Vientiane in 1545. The town of Luang Prabang owes its present name to the Pha Bang, a revered Buddha image (now in the Royal Palace Museum) which was brought to the town in the early 1500s.

          I like doing many things with my friends in every weekends, especially on Sunday morning. Although morning-time spans not that long, I try to spend every second with them and it feels like a long weekend indeed.
          It all began at 06.00 a.m. I went to a car free day with all my best friends by riding our bicycles. On one of the spots, we did things we like, such as chit-chatting, jogging, telling jokes, and showing-off our bike. We did these things until we got bored, then I looked at my wristwatch.

She told me to pack my bag and prepare to go with her. I was wondering for a moment and straightly remembered that I had a plan with her: I had to be a wig model for my sister.

It covered many interesting performances, such as Korean fashion style, Hanbok shows, cover dance, Korean solo cover song, and many more. After spending almost 5 hours there, we went home using a pre-ordered cab. After we arrived, I laid myself to my bed and got my rest as tomorrow I have to go to school early.

          Earthquake often happens around us. It brings great damages. Earthquake is hard to be predicted and that makes a lot of victims. Actually there are three kinds of earthquake. The different kinds of earthquake are commonly based on the factor and geological area where the earthquakes happen. These three kinds of earthquake are tectonic, volcanic, explosive.
          Tectonic earthquake is the most common one. This kind of earthquake happens while earth 's crust rocks break because of the geological strength created by moving of the earth's plates.
          Volcanic earthquakes happen exactly with volcanic activity. Volacanic earthquakes are when the volcano produces acidic lava, which dries quickly. When it dries quickly it blocks the top of the volcano. This makes 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 volcano earthquake is usually kept within 10 - 20 miles from the volcano.
          Explosive earthquakes are the result of the collapse earthquakes where small earthquakes occur in underground mines and caverns.
