SCORE CIMSA FK UNPAD
Incoming’s Activities is one of SCORE’s activity which aims to welcome the incoming from other country and introduce them about Indonesia’s culture during her research exchange here, especially Bandung and Jatinangor. Every year, SCORE CIMSA FK UNPAD accepts some medical student incomings who join the FK UNPAD doctor's research projects.
This September, there was one medical student who came to Central Laboratory of Padjadjaran University in Jatinangor to do her research exchange project. She is Nada Abdelaziz from Egypt.
As the host, we held three main events, namely Welcoming Dinner, Social Program, and Farewell Party to welcome our incoming.
The first event, Welcoming Dinner, was held on September 4th , 2019 at Checo Café, Jatinangor. This dinner was held to welcome her on her first week in Jatinangor. SCORE CIMSA FK UNPAD held the dinner together with her. All of us had an enthusiastic conversation with her. We had fun, got closer, ate delicious Sundanese food, and shared many things about our countries. We introduced her to Indonesian language, food, history, transportation, and all the rules which the incoming must follow during her exchange and not to mention also some tips on how to survive here through Upon Arrival Training (UAT).
The second activity was Social Program which was held on September 14th, 2019 at Tahura, Keraton Hill, and Sambara Restaurant, Bandung. Through this social program, we wanted to introduce the beauty of Bandung to the incomings. We went to Tahura (Taman Hutan Raya) first, enjoyed the scenery of the forest, then we had so much fun seeing the beautiful view of Bandung from the top of Keraton Hill. We didn’t forget to take some photos there. The day ended with a Sundanese exotic dinner at Sambara Restaurant, Bandung.
It has been almost a month for our incoming since she arrived in Jatinangor. Finally, it was time for her to leave and go back home. Before she left, last but not least we held a Farewell Party for her on September 19th, 2019 that took place at Ponyo Restaurant, Jatinangor. During this farewell party, we had such a lovely dinner while having fun and reminiscing those beautiful moments that we had together for almost a month. We didn’t forget to say good bye as her journey in this exchange had finally come to an end.
It was so nice either to meet her or to share beautiful moments with her. We hope that her exchange journey was a pleasant and remarkable experience that lasts a lifetime. We also hope all those memories always stay in her hearts and minds.
