HUFS Malay-Indonesian Department's 50th Anniversary (part 2)
@Aekyung Hall, Graduate School of International Area Studies where the opening ceremony was held. Along with my colleagues from Gadjah Mada University (UGM) who attended the anniversary. Pak Heru (Vice Dean, School of Humanities), Pak Tri Mastoyo (Head, Korean Department, UGM), ibu Novi Siti Kussuji (Head, cooperation affairs, research center, UGM), and mbak Wira, lecturers of Indonesian Language & Literature Dept., UGM....and the list would go on..had I not stopped...
and..Min Seonhee popped up. She's an UGM alumni so she determined that she'd surely meet their colleagues from UGM while they're in Korea. And she did.
The so many jilbabers or women in jilbab that dotted that day's atmosphere really showed the fact that indeed lots of guests from Southeast Asian countries came to the anniversary. These are my colleagues from Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta and from Unsoed, Purwokerto, Central Java. And likewise..the list would go on....
We had a dinner at 금강산 restaurant near HUFS right after the whole-day seminar ended. Prof. Yang was handing out a token of gratitude to our representative, Pak Tri Mastoyo. I should've taken more pictures..but my hands were tight down...not literally, of course.
An after-dinner group picture--looked like we're not ready to take a pose when the camera clicked!!!`
seminar-done. presenting paper-done. dinner-done. and what's next?
traveling in Korea..to buy some souvenirs..(the following day's agenda)..and I got to be a sudden tour guide....with pleasure*-^^
