I Pass

After we had finished the interview test, Sensei came to the lab. Afterward, we were discussing the test in a short–including the revision.

“Maybe you have to revise in some places. Then after your revision I will send it to Philippines. I have a student who works in proofreading company there, and she will be helping us. After the proofreading, she will return it back to me. The final submission deadline was set on August 20. Are you going to leave somewhere?” Sensei asked us.

“Yes, Sensei. From tomorrow until August 10th I will be in Yokohama,” I answered.

“No problem. When you have completed the revision, please send it by email to me. The earlier, the better,” Sensei continued.

“I think I can have my correction done by the end of next week because it’s not that much. I just need to check the grammar,” Lynda-san replied.

“OK. And, CONGRATULATION! Both of you pass the program. In general, your master theses are excellent. The sub-supervisors have evaluated it, and there is no problem. You should proud of yourself.”

“Thank you, Sensei. Thank you so much.” 

“Please try to revise your thesis perfectly, and have a rest. Anyway, I have to go to Kagawa University to make a lecture. If you have some problem, please let me know through email. OK?”

“Haik, Sensei.”

After sensei had left the room, Lynda-san said, “We pass!”



Honto ni arigatou gozaimasu for the supports from parents, brothers, sisters, all the members of the big family, and friends. Thank you very much.

And of course, the most grateful thanks go to my lovely Kai, for her continuous love, patience and motivation. Without her, I am nothing. Really nothing.

Alhamdulillahi robbil ‘alamin. All praises be to Allah, the Lord of the entire universe.
