Presenting Short Tapping Cycle paper at International Rubber Research & Development Board (IRRDB) Conference at Legend Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
There are about 100+ papers presented within 2 days conference and I'm the 2nd presenter in the 1st day.There are 3 others from Malaysia whose attended for these meeting.
1st day-Seek for halal restaurant and try to get a tentative programmes, but haven't got it.In Vietnam, there are 8 thousand muslims and only 2 halal restaurants.In the Ho Chi Minh City, they are almost 10 million citizens that doing myriad jobs to survive.Something speciall about Vietnam is, there are a lot of motorcycles on the road with minimal traffic light, but no accident! their people not selfish like our people..we felt save to cross the road in a congestion area coz they will automatically slow down for us...marvellous!
2nd night-Together with teman2 dari Indonesia seramai 11 org have a night journey cruissing Saigon River, have a dinner with life music on the cruise for about 2 hours...USD 21, quite expensive but really enjoyed. If we go by ourself the cost must not exceed that much.
3rd day-Field trip to Dau Tieng Rubber Corporation (DRC),to looking for their plantation and factory.In the evening ke Benh Than Market, to buy apa yang patut buat teman2 di office serta kaum family..most interesting is I bought kapal for Head and Jr..and for me af course..the price far less than in Malaysia..berbaloi.at night have a dinner di Sate House..together with Dato Aziz (IRRDB Chairman), Dr. Wan (former TKP),and TKP..and friends..Pak Ya & Zin..Krishna sudah tibai KFC, halal kata dia.
