Completed the entire Ph D course...

Today (Feb 18th, 2010), from 15:00 to 17:00 was my final viva for my Ph. D.

Alhamdulillah (thanks Allah (my God)), everything went so smoothly. This was actually my 4th presentation of the same slide, including in-laboratory rehearsals and previous presentation to my 3 supervisors. Actually, it's more than 4 times if all my previous international conferences are included, as each part of the entire 1 hour presentation was presented elsewhere, and already published elsewhere.

I only want to say "thank you" to all members of Egawa Laboratory (RCNDS, Nagoya Inst of Tech) for all support I received from everybody. In whatever I did, there's everybody's effort in it... from the idea, growth, characterization, process, discussions, printing, publishing, comments, helps, smiles, ... everything!

Thanks to you guys for helping me before the presentation, and the support that you gave. It was the first time in my life having people coming to greet and shake hands with me after the presentation. Having the scene made me feel so happy... didn't even have in my lifetime people called to my laboratory phone just to say "good luck". Thank you guys for helping me turning back the presentation room to its original state after the presentation. Thank you for taking so much care about me...

I wish good luck to all you guys in whatever you're doing. The entire 9 years at NIT were great, and the entire 6 years at Egawa Lab made my life rocks!

Alhamdulillah, hope that what I faced and showed along my life journey could help making your world rocks, too.

Each of us is just a small guy, in need for each other.

Thank you.
