Répondre avec un professeur de la manioc November 28, 2010

23-25 November 2010 kemarin telah berlangsung The 3rd International Conference of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (ICMNS) di (mantan) kampus saya. Acara ini terdiri dari seminar oleh international guest speakers, oral presentation oleh peserta, dan poster oleh peserta. Topik penelitian yang disampaikan melalui seminar, presentasi, maupun poster sangatlah menarik, yang tentunya masih dalam lingkup matematika dan ilmu alam seperti fisika, kimia, farmasi, astronomi, biologi, dan lainnya. Peserta oral presentation dan posternya banyak sekali, dan hampir semuanya berkewarganegaraan Indonesia. Sedangkan profesor yang menyajikan seminar berasal dari berbagai belahan dunia, di antaranya Indonesia, USA, UK, Jepang, Belanda, Australia, dan Swiss.

Salah satu profesor yang diundang fakultas saya, SITH ITB, menjadi guest speaker adalah Prof. Dr. Hervé Vanderschuren, Cassava Group Leader dari Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich (ETH Zurich). Beliau diundang oleh supervisor S1 saya yang sama-sama meneliti mengenai cassava. Pada saat ICMNS 2010 ini, beliau tidak hanya presentasi di Aula, namun juga di fakultas kami. Yeah, u know, fakultas saya yang mayoritas mahasiswanya adalah cewek-cewek, sangat mengidolakan beliau yang rupawan, friendly, casual, and so young!
Beliau tidak nampak seperti seorang profesor, karena penampilannya yang sangat gaul juga senang bercanda.
Tapi saat beliau memulai presentasinya,, wuihh,, kagak ngarti dah! haha. It means beliau benar-benar profesor yang sudah sangat mendalami seluk-beluk mengenai cassava a.k.a singkong dengan penelitiannya yang sangat komprehensif, mulai dari identifikasi protein pada singkong yang jumlahnya lebih dari 8000 macam, membuat tanaman singkong transgenik yang resisten terhadap virus, meneliti promoter gen spesifik pada umbi singkong, dan maaasssiiihhh banyak lagi, baik dengan pendekatan secara molekuler maupun konvensional. Namun yang saya tangkap dari presentasinya, beliau fokus pada peningkatan produksi singkong di Afrika, karena tanaman singkong di sana produksinya lebih rendah dan lebih rentan dibanding tanaman singkong di Asia dengan perlakuan yang sama. (bersyukurlah kita yang tinggal di Asia, loh??)

Walaupun presentasinya di aula sama dengan yang disampaikannya di fakultas kami, menurut saya, topiknya tetap saja menarik (walau saya sempat tertidur beberapa detik :p). Entah karena topiknya sangat berkaitan dengan tugas akhir S1 saya, atau karena presenternya ya?? hihihi..
Tugas akhir S1 saya berkebalikan dengan salah satu penelitian beliau, dimana saya menganalisis promotor gen dari singkong yang ditransformasikan ke Arabidopsis, sedangkan beliau menganalisis promotor gen dari Arabidopsis yang ditransformasikan ke tanaman singkong.
That’s an interesting opposite work. 😀

Prof. Vanderschuren berada di Bandung selama tiga hari saja. Namun, selama 3 hari ini, beliau telah banyak sharing ilmu dan problem solving pada kami di sini, terutama mengenai bioteknologi. Melihat usianya yang masih muda, 33 tahun, kami juga semakin termotivasi untuk dapat menghasilkan inovasi di bidang kami, apapun itu, tentunya untuk menghasilkan sesuatu yang dapat dinikmati oleh semua kalangan di seluruh dunia.

Mudah-mudahan selama kunjungannya ke Bandung, beliau enjoy dan nyaman dengan kesejukan dan keramahan kota Bandung. Dan semoga setelah dari Bandung, beliau masih bisa menikmati “keindahan” Indonesia di Jakarta, karena masih ada undangan dari Universitas Atmajaya untuk beberapa hari ke depan (kalau gak salah 30 November 2010).
Kami tunggu kedatangan Anda lagi, Prof. Dan semoga kami di sini juga berkesempatan mengunjungi tempat Anda di Swiss. hehe *ngarep*
Yah,, moga-moga hubungan bilateral Indonesia-Swiss, khususnya ITB-ETH, dapat terus terjalin salah satunya dari penelitian kami semua yang saling berkaitan. hehe. Sip??

Although we just met for three days, hope we’ll keep in touch in our ways of research, so that we can colaborate someday to generate innovation for a better life.

Selamat HUT ke-2, Ayukireina Siskahaning Prahesti

Look, that is my second birthday cake given by my parents. My father wrote the greeting on the cake (his handwriting was very authentic :p). And the writing on the center of the cake read: “Omedetou” means “Congratulation” or “Happy” birthday..
I miss that moment, which my parents surprised me when I was under the tatami with warm air flowed from shitobu in the winter. I want to go back to this moment. If only I could turn back time.

Unnoticed, 21 years have passed. Now, I’m officially 23 years old. It’s old enough, right?
With my age now, I supposed to get married and have a baby. But let me delay these plan to achieve my old dreams first. 😀 (I’m so sorry, mom..)
However, hopefully there is prince charming who come to me and propose me to be his princess in a few years. (daydreaming) 😛

On this birthday, I’ve got more than 200 greetings from friends and family via wall post in Facebook, text message, and direct communication. Thank yooouuu very much for the prayers. May Lord bless us and I wish us all the best. So happy to have y’all. And not forget to thank for the cake.. :”>

So grateful I was born and grown in this surroundings that supports me to be a person like I am now.
There was only because of Allah SWT, The Almighty God.
I thank with all my soul and body to You, Lord,, for everything that You gave me.
And thanks to my mom, who always support me with all her efforts.

Kage Bunshin no Jutsu November 14, 2010

Do you know the “Kage Bunshin no Jutsu”??
If you love to watch anime series Naruto, you must be knew what it is.
The Bunshin no Jutsu (“Clone Technique”) creates illusory duplicates of the user. It is impossible to tell which is the real ninja and which are illusions; clones generated by this technique, however, cannot attack anything as they are not physical beings.
Kage bunshin no jutsu is a shadow replication technique performed by Naruto. Unlike the normal replication technique, this jutsu creates not just an illusion, but multiple real bodies of yourself. The clones will be created in roughly the same condition as the original. The strength of the clones is evenly distibuted among the user and every clone, making it impossible to decipher which is the original. Since these are real clones, unlike regular Bunshin no Jutsu, they can cause damage to a target, however, they will disappear if hit.

Ahh,, I wish I had that jutsu ability, so I could performed 5 or more works in different places. Therefore, I won’t be worried if there were many deadlines in the same time. #outpouring from the deep of my heart#
I want to be Naruto right noooooowwwwwww!!!!!!!

Smells like: WHAT IS IT??!! November 12, 2010

I feel very exhausted for recent days, maybe caused by high mobility that eat up so much energy.
Yesterday, I planned to study together with my english classroom mates at my friend’s house. Unfortunately, my body refused to be compromised with my brain. So, I called one of my friend to cancel my presence.
Fastly, I crossed the street to ride a public transport car, Dago-Kalapa. But,,, you know what, the driver forced the gas pedal sooo strong.. I felt like riding a dangerous vehicle in amusement park. After few seconds, a strange odor was blowing inside the car. How can I didn’t think that was a problem with this car?
It made me called my friend to ask what the blo*dy smell it is. And my friend said that it was an odor from clutch leaking. I didn’t know, because I’ve never scented it before.
I have smelled this HELL odor for almost 5 minutes, and it made shortness of breath also strong cough.
(no no, not HELL odor actually, you can get the information about various of smells in car here)
For God sake, I couldn’t stand this smell! I would die!
Few moments later, the driver stopped for a while, and there was a girl came into the car and sat.
Both of us had strong cough, but not the driver.
Girl: “What smell is it?”
Driver: “What smell?”
Girl: “It’s like smell of the shrimp paste” (what?? u said shrimp paste??)
Me: “No, probably it’s from the clutch!” (I went outside quickly and paid the cost)
Driver: “What? Clutch??!!!!!”
Too bad, seems that both the driver and the girl didn’t concern to my words, because they were still sitting inside the car and looked “comfortable”. (How strong they are!)
Thereafter, I could really breath the fresh air. Alhamdulillah…
But,,, I think I got a headache attack. I couldn’t walking upright. Yeaahh, I knew it. It surely because of that f***in’ blo*dy odor.
Anyway, thank God, because of this incident, I could pray together at Salman mosque just in time for maghrib. And not forget to drink a cup of full cream milk for neutralizing the chemicals from the odor.
So, the rest are eat a lot and sleep tightly. 😀

What is your priority? November 10, 2010

Currently I’m dying with this insomnia. I don’t know exactly how it could be happened.
Probably it’s just like you in an underpressure condition. Or maybe it is a truly friction of your circadian clock.
Yeah, maybe they’re too many matters to be solved.
The most simple thing you can do is determine them, based on the priority. Then, you should put all of your effort to finish them all no matter what.
Because that’s all for your own sake, maybe in the future.
So, choose your priority right now! And focus..

Thank God, after wrote this before-bed script, I feel a little sleepy.
Now I’m going to sleep.
Bon nuit..
