By train Argo Parahyangan Bos Ili and I headed to Jakarta to attend Tomy’s wedding. It was held in a hall located in area of masjid Cut Meutia central Jakarta. The schedule of the train at 7.30 am from Bandung. When I arrived there, those were several friends of MA09 gathering in a small forum ; talking each other. Because of several of us would go back first, we then take a photo with Tomy and his behalf. After all the agenda was end, Topan and the gank invited me to hangout with them. Of course, it was nice and very interesting. We did it in a foodshop at Sarinah. Have a happy life with your love Tom !
This day is my fourth time in this month going to Jakarta. I arrived at 8.30 pm (approximation) this morning then took a breakfast and drink black coffee. All I was doing at station. After finishing my reading (related to my research), I then by Gojek going to Sport Station in some mal in MH Thamrin ( I think It was in Sarinah) buying a sporty bag for my travelling. It is too lazy bringing suitcase in a travel from Bandung to Jakarta (I will not bring many belongings) so a bag that I bought actually not like a suitcase. I get a bag whose brand “Reebook”. It is not too big and too bag, it is suitable for me. I hope it will be accompany me for a long time. After praying in a mosque near mal (whose name Alhikmah) then I directly order Gojek and bring me to a guesthouse (located in Hayam Wuruk) that I order before in Traveloka. The guesthouse costs 160 k one room for 2 people. My friend has just arrived here. Enjoy the night, tomorrow is conference day. I will give a presentation entitled “For IPTN to UAVINDO Nusantara : A Shift of Triple Helix and Its Implication in Science and Technology Policy“.
Monday morning at 9 AM, Air Asia brough me and also SBM guys to Kuala Lumpur. The aim was to join IC-HCKM conference. I was one of the presenters in parallel session. We stayed at UTM homestay in the UTM KL building area. From here, I can see twin towers of Petronas because of how near our place to the heart of city center. The agenda in the first day was just staying at the room and then hanging out at the night. We (Pak Hary, Widi, and me) went to Petronas towers then looking for dinner in a food court (I forget with the name). When we went back to our dorm, somebody let us to deliver. We was surprised with this kind old guy. In the second day, we altogether joined seminar in Renaissance hotel in KL. All the day we spent here until dinner time. When the parallel session was going on, I attended the 2nd room with Pak Hary as moderator. When I presented some awkward moments happened when some audiences asked me including Pak Yan. I was so confused in that time. I got many noted for improvement of the research. In the last day, we went to Central market buying gifts (oleh-oleh).
