Some of my results from PMBS Photography Club photo hunting.
Lucky for us, we had Merrie Elizabeth as a model.
I admit there are still many flaws I produced in my shots.
Any constructive comments?
It was only a week ago, I joined a very insightful event called:
Indonesia Novartis BioCamp 2013.
I felt so lucky I was selected as one of its 26 finalists from various universities in Indonesia.
What can I learn from that event? I must say it’s a lot.
We got overview of health industry, especially Indonesia pharmaceutical industry.
We visited very sophisticated Novartis plant, Eijkman Institute, etc.
Even we obtained valuable informations directly from the experts!
Did I mention yet this event is also a competition?
We have to make a business plan based on specific case and this year’s case is about Myelofibrosis.
Honestly, even me as a dentist never heard of it before.
And yes, our DiFib group unexpectedly won the best group presentation. (So much fun to have you guys! -Lia, Dewi, Nisa and Erwin-)
Haha, you have no idea about how we improvised “our plain and ordinary presentation slides” to, at least, catchy presentation.
Well, finally the best participants are announced.
My room mate: Rudy from UI, and my PMBS mate: Merry will go to Novartis International BioCamp 2013 as Indonesia representatives. Good luck guys!
Thank you Novartis Indonesia!
Whoa, it’s been a while I didn’t have any trace in this blog.
No, it’s not like that I’m so busy in life. It’s just yeah you know, to transform our life into words you write regularly, you have to use all of your power to do it. Okay a bit exaggerating in that.
Well, here I am, already a dentist. Just begun a kickstart in some private practices and noticed that there are still much knowledge out there to be learned.
And another stuff, joining a committee that prepares an international congress for dentistry, KPPIKG2013. Ah, you all dear colleagues should register for it on kppikg.com. I’m in charge for the website (cooperating with my senior high school friend) and some publication stuffs. Err, it sounds more like a promotional thing, so I should stop, haha.
And oh, here is I would like to suggest you all to watch a TV series called The Unusuals, been watching it recently and really feel entertained.
Great cast, great story. Having that great potential is not enough, it had been cut off and stopped, no following season after the 1st one.
Well, that’s it. Randomly passing by, just to say hello there I’m still alive.
So, the journey started at 2008 back there at Surabaya, Indonesia.
My very first APDSA and I was a group leader at that time.
Met with other dental students from many countries in Asia-Pacific and also shared the culture.
The excitement still exists until now, I never forget what a great experience it was.
And the journey continues to 2009 at Penang, Malaysia.
It was so memorable that my seniors won the 1st place on SRC’s Oral Presentation.
And then I, actually me and my research group, were inspired.
“We can do it, too!”
We prepared the research well and planned it to be presented on Japan’s APDSA 2010.
But. it was not our time yet. Our team didn’t get the quota because the enormous excitements from Indonesia to join it.
A little dissappointment, but yeah we just wait for next APDSA.
Then the 2011 arrived and finally our research got selected! So we go as a team for APDSA 2011 in Bangkok just now.
“Luckily”, I’m the one chosen as presenter for my group.
Excited with a bit feeling of worried, but there’s nothing to lose!
It’s already an honour to be selected and joined such this international competition.
I remembered the time when we started the research back there.
Until this memorable and precious moment!
It’s 2nd place for SRC’s Oral Presentation!
Maybe we’re not the best, but we did our best. 🙂
Well then, probably it would be my last APDSA, but as APDSA’s seniors said, “Once APDSA, always APDSA!”
(I’ll write the memories from this Bangkok’s APDSA on the next post if I got time, heheh :D)
