In addition to Unity, Coherence plays a crucial part of writing a paragraph. Every coherent paragraph containts smoothly-connected ideas. Each sentence moves on naturally. Tshe paragraph is like a well-built high-way. Vehicles will run smoothly without encountering too many obstacles. On the contrary, the incoherent paragraph might be like a zig-zag bumpy mountain road; as the result vehicles can’t run fast and easily.

To achieve coherence, the writer need to use the transitions, such as however, although, finally, and nevertheless. As the word implies, a transition is similar to change one item idea to another. So that able to support the writer to make smooth way to produce a coherent paragraph. Using appropriate transisitons, the writer will not jump out of the blue or sound too abrupt. The idea will run smoothly.

Pay attention to the following transitions in the paragraph below:

Recently, I went to Surabaya, a lovely big city in East Java, to visit my penfriend, Arda, for the first time. Although the bus was full, I was lucky enough to get a comfortable seat and could enjoy the trip. After about a forty-five minutes, I got off at the station and began to look for my friend’s address. Unfortunately, I failed completely in my attempt. To cheer myself up, I then window-shopped downtown. Moreover, I had a walk in the town-square park. Nevertheless, I still ferlt rather dissapointed. Therefore, I decided to go home and said to myself, “Certainly, I shall ‘visit’ Arda another time.”

As we can observe, every sentence in the paragraph above begins with a transitional word. As a matter of fact we can delete some of them. Since we intended to supply a sample paragraph as many transitional words or expressions as possible, we included all the transitions by intention. It is understandable if some of us argue that the paragraph, in fact, does not read naturally: It contains too many transitions.

    once upon a time there lived neighbors, a bear and a rabbit. The rabbit was a good shooter and the bear, being very clumsy, could not use an arrow for a good advantage.
    The bear was very unkind to the rabbit. Every morning, the bear would call over to the rabbit and asked the rabbit to take his bow and arrows and came with the bear to the other side of the hill.
    The bear feared to make angry if he refused consented went with the bear. The bear shoot some Buffalo to satisfy the bear’s family. Indeed, he shoot and killed so many that there was still lots of meat left after the bear and his family had loaded themselves and packed all them could carry home.
    However, the bear was so greedy and that he didn’t allow the to get any of the meat. The poor rabbit could not even taste the blood from the butchering, as the bear would throw earth on the blood and dried it up. The poor rabbit would have to go home hungry after his hard day’s work.
    The bear was the father of five children. The youngest bear was very kind to the rabbit. Knowing that the youngest bear was a very hearty eater, the mother bear always gave him an extra large piece of meat. Instead of eating this extra meat, the youngest bear would take the meat outside and pretend to play ball with it, kicking it toward the rabbit’s house, and when he got close to the door he would give the meat such a great kick that it would fly into the rabbit’s house. In this way the poor rabbit would get his meal, without known by the papa bear.
    From this story, we can get benefit that we shouldn’t be greedy for everything. So, we must be tolerance for everybody.

The ‘dalang’ sticks the handles of the puppets on these banana trees so the puppets can stand. The puppets, the ‘dalang’, the Javanese musicians and singers, and the lamp are in front of the screen while the spectators are behind the screen during the show, and then they can see the shadow of the puppets on the screen. Basically, There are two groups of puppets, for example are good characters and bad characters. The good characters are on the right-hand side of the ‘dalang’ while the bad characters are on the left-hand side. Certainly, this show is a popular in Java.

    MOG is a good departmentstore. In the first place it is very modern and clean inside. Then it has a large parking lot which able to hold many visitor’s vehicles. However a departmentstore should always be clean. Generally teenagers like to sit, have tea, coffee, or a soft drink, and gossip there after school. Furthermore MOG is a good place to buy food, clothes, accesories, tools, and many things. Certainly there is always a large choice, and the Prices are always reasonable. In other words MOG have all the requirements to be called a good departmentstore

    My hometown is famous for several amazing natural features.  First, it is noted for the Wheaton River, which is very wide and beautiful. On either side of this river, which is 175 feet wide, are many willow trees which have long branches that can move gracefully in the wind.  In autumn the leaves of these trees fall and cover the riverbanks like golden snow.  Second, on the other side of the town is Wheaton Hill, which is unusual because it is very steep.  Even though it is steep, climbing this hill is not dangerous, because there are some firm rocks along the sides that can be used as stairs.  There are no trees around this hill, so it stands clearly against the sky and can be seen from many miles away.  The third amazing feature is the Big Old Tree. This tree stands two hundred feet tall and is probably about six hundred years old.  These three landmarks are truly amazing and make my hometown a famous place.
    of course with the existence of this tree makes the scenery around the river becomes more fascinating. Wheaton River is very wide to bring its own progress so that my village became famous for its beauty that attracted the attention of many people, even to reach the river must climb a mountain, but did not rule out the possibility that the river was not tempted beauty, that’s the beauty of Wheaton River fabulous with some outstanding natural features.

    Actually Lamongan not like the city of Malang, but no less Lamongan city like the city of Malang. Just the same town, dubbed the city park orphans, Malang, East Java town park 1 and Lamongan town jatimpark 2. Although not as jatimpark 1, jatim park 2 also good although not as orphans rides the bicycle park 1, Lamongan city government will complete the spacecraft Mars. In other words Lamongan no different with the city of Malang. Although Lamongan not like the city of Malang, Lamongan have never deserted from the visitors from within and from outside the city. Usually, when visiting Lamongan more precisely in the WBL (Marine Tourism Lamongan) or we are familiar with Park East Java less afdol if not visit other places for example, dams gondang, Maharani cave, Maharani zoo, caves akbar, and others. In Malang, there are also good places for example sengkalin, selekta, Cuban rondo, BNS, and others.
    A lot of nice places in Lamongan and in Malang, which is not possible I mentioned one by one if I mentioned one by one one day will not be finished for me to mention. For more delicious for yourself visit the city Lamongan and poor. Surely you’re not going to regret.
    By the way on the east is also tourist attractions of Java is not inferior to western Java, central java, south of Java, and north of Java.
    Hahahahahahaha ( memang ada ya south of Java, and north of Java) just a joke Mr.
    That is west of Java and Central Java.

    Has been carried out observations of the ways to guide and educate the child or student. One of them is Hypno parenting, the way how students through parents and family.
    Actually Parenting Hypno system include: LOVE LANGUAGES, Hypno Sleeping, MODEL Milton, ARTISTRY and EDUCATION.
    First, parents do LOVE LANGUAGES, for example by providing a soft touch to the child, then provide specific services as well as words of support to the child, and provide a gift for the child happy.
    Second, parents do Hypno Sleeping, namely by providing a touch when the child before bed, parents can also read a fairy tale before bedtime until the child falls asleep.
    Third, parents do MODEL Milton, by asking the magic words so the children know and understand what their parents say, a kind of softening a sentence so deee … hahaha …
    Finally, parents can be calm if the child is able to understand what their parents gave.
    However, in addition, parents also need to provide a kind of ARTISTRY as a kind of dances or movements to make the child better understand what that meant his parents, and sing a song or songs for children, to train the child’s vocals as well. .
    The latter, of course, parents provide adequate facilities and finance the education of children, at least 9 years of compulsory education .. but so kids do not get too spoiled, given the liver instead asked for the heart. ! ,, Hahahahaaaaa … … … ..
    And so on will be like that ,,

IN FACT, none of the vehicles that can pass through the street where my grandmother lived. So I had to walk past the river, gardens and rice fields. NEVERTHELESS, I still enjoyed the trip, because I could see an unspoiled rural scenery and well maintained. Especially when I’m down a path by the river and I saw two buffaloes was busy soaking, in my heart is saying quite comfortable if I lived in this village. UNFORTUNATELY, when I was busy walking along the river suddenly a buffalo woke up from his bathing activity, and quickly hit my body. AT THE MOMENT, I instantly fell just above the rice fields located on the riverbank. With deep disappointment I tried to get up from the top of rice but I find all my body filled with mud, dirty and smelly. EVEN THOUGHT, I still tried to get up and clean up the dirty with my body plunged into a river. After the feel is clean, I went on my way to grandma’s house. FINALLY, I got and I tell bad luck that I experienced on my grandmother and my grandmother just laughed at it funny experience.

    Beautiful cat, I love

    Beautiful cat is a cat a clean, healthy and well maintained. First, the things that need to be noticed is a healthy cat food and nutrition, among other things: fresh fish, minced meat, and fish snacks. In addition, cat hygiene should always be maintained, that is by bathing them every day by using a specific shampoo and rub cat’s every curve of that body. After bathing the cat and then dry them, next is to give powder so that no germs or lice. In addition, the powder can also create a cat hair smooth and soft. For long-haired cats and dense, then we have to comb their feathers gently for that feathers doesn’t fall. Playing with cats is also one way to avoid for cats do not stress. Cats are not stressed will look more cheerful and look beautiful. Most games to enjoy doing is playing ball and thread. Cats are moving to the right and the left is a sign that the cat is happy. The last is the cat checked by a veterinarian. This examination is usually done once a month to find out medical history cat. If treatment is done properly and correctly, then the cat will look pretty and adorable.

Among them are Bebelac milk with DHA content of nutrients and offered only a price of 80 thousand rupiah, then in other stores that milk prices are relatively more expensive. One of milk that still great demand is pediasure, traders who would sell them elsewhere. Unfortunately not all of people can buy milk with high nutrient, in addition they prefer buy milk that cheaper.
       Many of the lower classes prefer SGM milk prices that are very friendly with the objec economy. But whatever the exact choice of the mother, maternal love with milk prices down.

    Indonesian people have been through a globalization and it to influence the all of life style. Globalization at Indonesian people can looked from some aspect, such as at “TOURISM”, Indonesia has been visited by many tourist. Basicly, they visit to Bali, Yogyakarta, North Sumatra, Jakarta, etc, because those place have a potency and an interesting something to tourist. Then, we can looked at “TELECOMUNICATION”. Now, telecommunication is more develop. The example are post mail, telegram, telephone, faximile, email HP, and internet. Furthermore at “FOOD”, Indonesian people who’s live in big city prefer than eat fast food, like Pizza Hut, KFC, Dunkin Donut, Mac Donald, Hoka-Hoka Bento, etc. Although they knew, those food aren’t healthy to their body. At “ CLOTHES”, their many wears jeans, coat, and mini skirt. And then at “LIFE STYLE”, they much luxurious life, disciplineless, and timeless. Those are very dangerous for our life. We musn’t dodge nevertheless we must be postioned wisely so we can’t fall at negative globalization influence.

      By the Way. At that time I was a high school who “kiut” and beautiful of course, I became a member “Paskibraka” Kodya Malang. From the start in. “Paskibraka” I was in the delegation to hold the flag, so proud of me, well the story “flag it always me who own folded. Until years I graduated from high school, but my last job as a high school armed forces flag raisers failed, at that time in the hall ceremony to commemorate the miracle of Pancasila, not my usual practice I came up with his confidence on that morning, of course, with a uniform pride, I got the “headquarters paski” I’ve seen the flag folded, I do not think to check again I’m down just because the ceremony would’ve started, I get ready at my place, the ceremony started, troop flag had time to act, of course, remains with the formation of the line is OK and of course with compact army boots and prok-prok-prok.
