Bandung - Day 2

The second day in Bandung, which is also the first day of the conference, was spent mainly in the hotel itself. The whole day was full with plenary and parallel sessions of academic presentations. It is interesting to note the seminar culture in Indonesia. I personally find the Indonesians to be more active and participative during the question-and-answer sessions. They have a lot of questions, as well as opinions on the papers presented, which certainly makes the whole thing lively and interesting.

After the first day of the seminar ended, at around 6 p.m., the delegated from outside Bandung were taken to the official residence of the Walikota of Bandung. Walikota is the local term for mayor. The current Walikota, M. Ridwan Kamil, an architect by profession, was just elected to the post less than a month ago. He welcomed us for dinner, and made a short speech. However, he himself was not able to join us for dinner, as another group was waiting for him at another location in the premises. (If anyone was keeping abreast with what was happening in Indonesia, the labourers in the country went on strike to demand for minimum wage, and the Walikota had a discussion with a group of them that evening).

In brief, this was what transpired on the second day. Some of the Malaysian academics had presented their papers. My turn awaits tomorrow.
