Yaaaayyy!



Side Story:

I think graduation ceremony in Japan is not that festive — at least if you compare with graduation ceremony in Indonesia.

In Indonesia, it’s normally held on weekends. Japan? It’s on weekdays. My wife’s was held this afternoon, on a cloudy Monday.

It was a great day nonetheless :D.



Again, congratulation, dear.

    Congratulation Mbak Q ^^ by the way, kayaknya yang heboh wisudaan itu cuma di itb deh, yang sampe arak-arakan, ribut2 masuk ke sabuga, dsb. *Unpad aja klo wisuda adem ayem, cuma macet karena parkir doang*

    • Hmmm… heboh itu bukan dari definisi masalah “keributan” doang sih, tapi juga dalam hal atensi keluarga misalnya. Kalo wisuda di Jepang, kayaknya gak semua keluarga wisudawan datang ke acara. Kalo di Indonesia, mulai dari kakek, nenek, sampe keponakan ke-5 diusahakan hadir di tempat hehehe…

        Ah iya!! Betul itu betul. Lupa saya soal kehebohan itu, karena waktu saya yang diwisuda, yg datang cuma ayah-ibu aja. Bahkan adek aja ogah datang (dan sama saya disuruh nggak datang, berhubung sumpek). Tapi, klo liat temen2, sampe nyaris satu RT dibawa. Kayaknya keren banget gitu ya klo wisuda.

        • Yah, begitulah. It’s an achievement, really. But I guess, culture-wise, people here celebrate it differently :D…
