Hello everybody, well let me introduce my self.
Iam Vina Rachmaya, student from State University Of Surabaya (UNESA). I’m in fifth grade. In this posting I’ll tell you about my incredible journey when I visited Universiti Utara Malaysia.
Iam very glad, happy, and shocked when my name is called to join in STUDENT MOBILITY PROGRAM that was held from last year in my campus. Iam not alone, there are 4 student that also called to join this program. They are, Herlina Ari Wulandari, my classmate; then Aning Istiana, my senior; Meilasari D. R, my senior too; and the last is M. Zainal Arifin, the Chairman of HIMA Public Administration.
We went to Malaysia at September 28th 2014 in 06.30 A.M. We started our trip with meeting in Juanda International Airport. Then at 09.30 A.M we took off. We landed in Kuala Lumpur airport at 12.00 A.M. Our next trip was still long. so we decided to take a walk in Petronas Twin Tower, Kuala Lumpur. In order we could arrived there, we took a bus “Star Shuttle” at 02.20 P.M. then, we continued took a taxi to Petronas Twin tower. After arrived in Twin Tower of Petronas, we took so many pictures. We were so happy could visit that tower. Because as we know, that tower is very famous in ASEAN. For the first time I felt so fly because I could visit one of the famous place in the world, especially in ASEAN. Next, we took a Rapid Kuala Lumpur and Express Monorail to go back in airport. In airport we decided to lunch in a restaurant. For the first, I liked Milo Ice so much. it was so nice. I love Ice Milo.
After that we continued our trip to Kedah. 08.00 P.M We took off to Alor Setar airport, Kedah-Malaysia. in 45 minutes we landed at that airport. The airport is very small. Then MR. Yatno, the Lecturer of Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) picked up us. At that time, the weather was not good. The rain was down. And it was heavy rain.
It was about an hour we arrived in kedai. we ate together there. I ordered Ice Milo again. After hour, we went to UUM to rest there.
At 11.00 P.M. we arrived in UUM canteen. We were welcomed by the student of UUM and University Muhammadiyah Malang. They were very kind and friendly. They gave us so many information. They also helped us to arrived in our room.
After that we rest in our room.
In the second day, we joined sit in together with student from UUM and the other university from Indonesia. At that first time, I was surprised because this university was very large and green. The facility is also very complete. We were facilitated with campus bus. That bus could reach all of place in the university area, And the bus is very clean, comfort, and good condition.
In the third day, we joined the seminar with the theme: The Role Of Youth in ASEAN Community 2015.
The seminar was very interesting. After that, we continued our activity with joined “The Role Play Discussion”. The delegation from Unesa was Zainal. The game is about to feel the hot issue that for this time Indonesia-Malaysia in squeeze situation. The student from Malaysia as Indonesian, and the student from Indonesia as Malaysian. They got the problem that for this time happened in our life.
After Role Play Discussion, we moved into other class to presentation. The presentation discuss about the role of youth in ASEAN Community 2015. In this event, we separated in two class, because many participant that would presentation. The presentation run nicely. Our team from UNESA performed attractively.
In the Fourth day we joined the Culture Night Party. In that moment we performed the culture from our environment. and from UNESA was performed reading a poem, playing poetry, and singing Tanjung Perak song together, We chosen to perform that because the other participant was almost perform traditional dance. So we want to give a unique performance.
