The Legend of Tengger

This is one of the example of Narrative text.

The Legend of Tengger.

Here is the other example of Anecdote, I wish it can be used as a reference for you, all the reader of my blog.


The Power of Tradition


The young husband clearly loved to cook and the dinners he served his new wife convinced her that she was indeed a lucky woman.

One thing puzzled her, though, and at last she decided to enquire. “Oh, my dear. Why do you always cut a smal piece off the end of the roast before you put it into the oven?”

“Well, to tell the truth. I do it because my mother always does it,” he replied.

At the next family gathering, the wife decided to satisfy her curiosity. She drew her mother in law aside and put the question to her. The older woman went a bit red, and replied, “Well, to tell the truth, I do it because my mother always does it.”

Undaunted, the wife waited until they paid a visit to eighty years old Nan. Knowing she’d enjoy hearing the story, she told her about her persevering quest to find the answer to the chopped off roast.

“Incredible,” she croacked. “Imagine the two of them doing that!. ”Why, I only cut the piece off because my pan was too small.”


This is an example of Anecdote text type.


Looking for a Ring


There was a toolshed beside Tom’s house. The shed, where he kept his tools, had no window at all. So, it was always dark inside although it was day.

One day, Tom went into the toolshed to get ladder. When he was taking the ladder from its place, he dropped his ring. He left the ladder inside and went out of the shed.

Outside he began to look for the ring. He could not find it even though he had been seraching for quite a long time. His friend saw him searching for something and approached him. He asked, “What are you looking for, Tom?”

I’m looking for my ring. I just dropped it,” he answered while he continued searching.

“L et me help you. By the way, where did you dop it?” asked his friend,

“Inside the shed, he answered as he pointed to the shed.

His friend was surprised and said, “ Why don’t you look for it inside the shed?”

“Are you kidding? Inside the shed is very dark. I cannot see anything there. How can I find it? it is very bright here because of the sunlight. So, I’m sure I’ll see my ring here,” Tom explained.
