ASEAN-Japan Research Forum

AJRF: ASEAN-Japan Research Forum

(sedang update..sabar ya)

Osaka, May 2016

Sebulan sebelum trip ini, saya tempah penginapan jenis ‘home-stay’ di Osaka menggunakan khidmat Air BNB. Menarik juga percubaan pertama ini. Saya pilih penginapan Mr Hideki yang terletak tidak jauh daripada Osaka Station dan Umeda Station (ini dua stetsen interchange besar di Osaka).

Matlamat utama ke Osaka adalah untuk menghadiri AJRF (sila lawat laman web http://chareen8.wix.com/ajrf – thanks to Chareen yang bersusah payah siapkan laman web ini). Tetapi dalam masa sela-sela forum, kami ambil kesempatan untuk mengenali Osaka, Kobe dan Kyoto dengan lebih dekat.

Tiap hati memang maratonlah. Sekejap lompat train, sekejap naik bas, sekejap jalan turun naik tukar platform train. Pendek kata adalah dalam 12 ribu langkah sehari jumlah menapak!

Forum bertempat di Kansai University of International Studies (KUIS) kat kampus Amagasaki…yer, kat Jepun pun ada KUIS tau! Ahli panel dalam forum ada dari beberapa negara.

Terima kasih yang tak terhingga kepada prof Gin, Prof Ku Ruhana dans emua geng ICOCI yang awesome..Aniza, Azzah, Aaah, Chareen, Mazni, Kamal…semualah.

Selama tinggal di Osaka, sampai sudah tak jumpa Mr Hideki. Punyalah sibuk. saya pun sibuk, dia pun sibuk. kami berurusan melalui whatsap dan air bnb pages sahaja.

 

ITEX 2016

27th International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition 2016 (ITEX 2016)

Kuala Lumpur, 12-14th may, 2016.

I rushed to Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre after stepping my foot from the jet- plane. It was a 7 hours flight from Osaka, Japan. I knew I can’t catch the opening and judging session, but at least I have to be there to support my team members. We put up 3 projects this time, BacaBot (with Dr Husniza, Dr Mustafa and Dr Azizi), Write-rite (with Nursafinar), and Shadow Play (with Jasni).

These are the researchers involved in each product.

All three products have managed to attract attention from visitors. Well, gold, silver, bronze matter, but they are not priority anymore to us. The spirit of sharing the products with target audience is the main aim.

I am so happy for being able to share the innovation with others, but on top of that I am more than happy for UUM manage to score 100% achievement this time.
