Big Reunion

It has been very hectic weeks... Me and several friends organized a reunion party for Industrial Engineering Department, as part of Bandung Institute of Technology - Class of 1990 Big Reunion. It has been 20 years since the first time we walked into our campus, known in Indonesia as ITB (Institut Teknologi Bandung). Our friends had spread to various parts of the world. Most of us are rarely met. But thanks to social networking and technology, we were able to track down our long lost friends.

We held the reunion on October 9, 2010. We have been preparing the event since April!! Tracking down friend's locations took the most time. The physical preparation began in August; collecting funds, designing T-shirt, selecting the menu, choosing kid's goodie bag, and so on.

We were very excited when we met, off course. Some of us change, some of us still look the same (except the size and weight, perhaps...).

And at the final event of the reunion, our department got several award from the reunion committee. Industrial Engineering were the first department to collect the required reunion fee. And our friend, Teddy, was the one who traveled the farthest to get to Indonesia. It took him 24 hours to get to Indonesia from Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA.

And after the reunion, I felt so exhausted but happy. But then I had to deal with my deadlines at work. That was why I didn't have time for my needle and flosses.. :)

Now, things are slowing down a bit. Maybe it is time to get back to my WIP(s). Wish me luck !!!!


  1. Oh I bet you had a great time!! :D
    It must be very fun to review friends from old times and see where each one is working :)

    Hope to see some stitches soon :)
    Good luck with your wips ;)

  2. Yes Nia, it was great to finally meet them again... We even planned for our next reunion, five years from now..!! Haha, it's never too soon to plan it, right?

    And, the good news is : some stitches coming up!
