Flying Solo - Day 1

After a long wait for the approval of the program, four lecturers and five undergraduate students from the Department of Psychology IIUM flew to Solo (Surakarta) for a 3-day visit. We arrived at the LCCT very early in the morning, when many people are still fast asleep. Nine arrived at the terminal, but only 8 boarded the aircraft. But that's another story.

Upon arrival, we were treated to a breakfast at a super duper nice restaurant. The wooden structure, and the excellent food are a perfect welcoming for a sleepy group of people. From there, we headed to the campus of Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta. The rest of the day was filled with two big events: signing of MOU and keynote address on Islamisation of Psychology. Below are some of the pictures taken by the photography team from UMS.

We paid a courtesy visit to the office of the University's Rector. 
That's me in the middle, in the middle of an MOU-signing ceremony. On the left is the Dean of Fakultas Psikologi, and on the right is the Rector of the Universitas.
I was the 'bidan terjun' to deliver the keynote address

The MOU signing and keynote address were held at the Fakultas Psikologi building

Hands-on experience in batik making.

We had dinner at a diner which is situated opposite of a kraton. Lots of interesting recycled and reused materials at this diner.
