I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.

Roppongi Illumination in Tokyo Midtown

Sodegaura Terminal Trip of Tokyo City Gas System

The third Factory Study Tour (FST) was held on December 8th, 2009. In this trip we were went to the Sodegaura Terminal which one of the Gas terminal in Tokyo City Gas system. The Sodegaura terminal is actually located in Tokyo bay the sea side of Chiba Prefecture and operating for the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) receiving terminal. This trip was ran with aims to gave basic understanding about gas system in Tokyo as well as the basic knowledge about LNG itself for the participants.

In Japan, LNG is one of the most important primary energy in many sectors, such as industries, transportations and houses. For industries, the gas is used to be one of the main energy for industries operation as well as for electric generation besides oil, and coal. On the transport section several cars and buses were built to use LNG as their fuel. Meanwhile, for houses the gas has various functions from cooking, water heater, floor heater, and so on.

TOJ Class Party

On December 11, after the last presentation in TOJ class finally we have set the party. The party itself, in my opinion, was not kind of big party, it just like small party to strengthen the connection between the class participants. Moreover the party make a warm connection among the students especially this class which consist of various students from many countries.

In this party each student were expected to bring some food or snack and also drink to share with each other. Although there were no obligation to bring specific foods which belong to the typical or traditional foods of student countries, but many students brought it. It was very nice, because I can tasted some typical foods or snack, as an example the chocolate from Finland, candy from Germany and others food from various countries include my country Indonesia.

We were made one of our traditional food of Indonesia called “Martabak Telur” or in Japanese maybe it could be called “マルタバコ テルル” in this party. This kind of food maybe similar with Pizza from Italy but it is different for the ingredients and cooking processes. The ingredients were dominates by flour and egg (たまご) that mix and blend together with some “special” spices. After mix and blend the ingredients than the next step was to cook it and this was the final step, look simple right? yup, it is very simple because you don’t have to be a professional chef to make it, but you might be to understand how to cook it properly. So, if you want to learn or make “Martabak Telur” by your own self, what you need to do is just contact me, simple right?

*(but after that I need to contact my friend who made this food, because I also can’t make by myself) :p
