Testimony: Mr. Rizki Rahmad - Student Exchange in Japan

At November 5th 2014 until 9th January 2015, I visited Department Chemistry and Biomolecular Science, Gifu University, Japan as a visiting student. I was supervised by Prof. Mamoru Koketsu and Morina Adfa Ph.D to research in natural product of chemistry. At the end, I has been isolation three lignins from bark of Cinnamomum parthenoxylon by using silica column chromatography and learned how to use the high technology instrument, such as NMR, IR and Mass Spectroscopy which made me easier to get a best result. This data had published in International Journal and presented in International conference. This short-term program provided me to get international relation. It caused I meet the foreign people and joined GU-GLEE 1st International joint meeting which attended by rector from the sister universities. All of them were kind and have a good attitude.  My soft skill in language has been increase automatically while made a communication with the foreign people.

Beside academic and international relation, I also did a society and culture program. In Japan I found different society, culture, weather and discipline. Japan have a good facilities and everything can we get easily. I felt snow and enjoyed the situation which never I got before. It so amazed me.  For the first time, Koketsu laboratory members and me visited one of the island in Japan (Himakajima Island). In there I learned something about society in Japan. It’s totally different with our country, Indonesia.

         Finally specially thank for my supervisor (Morina Adfa Ph.D and Prof. Mamoru Koketsu), University of Bengkulu supported me as long as joint with this exchange program. This program has contribution for me to enhance my academic experience and utilize my soft skill will provide me better opportunities to learn from the best country especially Japan. I had the best memories as long as stay in Japan. It is like a dream come be true for me. But nothing impossible if we effort to catch it.

Dear My friend and My family

I’m very happy to come here and meet you.

I look at my right hand and I remember many events in Bengkulu. First, the life in Bengkulu starts from shaking hands by my right hand. The view, environment, temperature, culture and language. Everything is different from Japan. It’s fresh and the beginning of cheerful days. At the same time, it’s the beginning of like training because I can’t speak Indonesian and I can speak little English. I was very exhausted the fist few days. But I met you and lived with you. My life changed to just cheerful days. I cam find important thing and you changed me, you have a great personality for examples very kind, friendly, funny , exciting and serious etc. I’m a foreigner and I’m afraid because I can’t speak Indonesian. Bu you accept me and try to entertain me. But I think, if I do nothing, I can’t enjoy my stay. So I do everything which I have like you. By the way , I ate lunch by my right hand. I can enjoy my stay by doing so and I can find important thing. It’s true happiness and real me. Japan has better environment , a lot of money and many goods in comparison with Indonesia.

But when it comes to people who live in the country, I think Indonesia is better, because everyone looks like happy and there are the smiling faces everywhere. So I can find it. If I don’t come here, I can’t find it and may be my life wil end up false happiness and me. So this trip become a very special moment. Thank you.

Finally, I say goodbye by my right hand. I’m so sad, but I have to go back to Japan to tell about you to Japanese friends. And I’ll be back. March, 2016 absolutely !

This is my story of right hand.
