First flight to Chiang Mai

I went to the airport with my friend for boarding at 13.30 pm to Thailand, It was my first time flying to Thailand and with Air Asia. I flew twice to China with China Southern Airline, Garuda and Cathay Pacific. The flight was delayed 90 minutes, so I imagined that I would not be able catch the next plane in Bangkok, because it was too late. I did not care if I had to stay one night at hotel in Bangkok. I sat at the seat number 31F that meant in the back row. Before landing in Bangkok, I said to one of the fligt crew that I had transfer to Chiang Mai and the watch shew me that it was 19.00 p.m, and the boarding time to Chiang Mai is scheduled at 18.40 p.m. Trying to catch the transfered flight, the crew asked me to move to the first row in order get out quickly. She accompanied me to the flight attendant at the airport and told her what my problem was. After we had waited for a while, we had a very sad news. She informed us that the scheduled flight to Chiang Mai had took off, so the fligt was changed to another next plane.

It was 10 p.m when I arrived at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport. The airport is the major airport serving Chengdu, which is the capital city of the Sichuan Province in China. The airport got its name from the county where it is located, Shuangliu County, which is about 16 kilometers or 10 miles southwest of the city center. Following people go out the airport, I asked where I could find a bus station to Minshan Hotel. According to an officer, gone there was no bus to Minshan hotel in the evening after 10 p.m, and he suggested me to go by taxi. There were many taxis queuing in front of the outside gate, so I came to appear one of them and I tried to get in with my bag, but the taxi driver refused me. I tried another one as I did before, but once again the taxi driver refused me. What was wrong with me? An airport officer came to help me and he put my bagg into the baggage. Oh, it was a fool of my custom to put a big bag in the taxi in Jakarta.


2016 8th International Conference on Knowledge and Smart Technology (KST’2016) was held on 3-6 February 2016 in Chiang Mai Thailand. KST international conference has been established with the aim in mind that a sustainable community will be achieved through continuous studies and share resources.It provides a central forum for experts and developers to promote, share, and discuss various issues and developments in the broad field of Computational Intelligence, Intelligent Application, Intelligent Computer Networks and Systems, and Emerging Intelligent Technologies. KST international conference will provide an opportunity for young researchers to demonstrate their talent and interesting research ideas. The conference will benefit people who are actively involved in research related to computational intelligence and its applications in Thailand.

Early in the morning we had breakfast at the Mayflower Grande Hotel where we stayed for 4 nights. After having breakfast we webt to Kantary Hotel on foot, it was not far from our hotel just 10 minuteas walk. It was not easy to find the hotel, because when we asked to someone we met ialong the street, they could not speak English. Fortunately we met a woman who shew me the direction to the hotel. She can speak English because she had studied in New Zealand some years ago.

With Muhammad Rusli, I attended the conference on behalf of Kalbis Institute, Jakarta, presented our paper “Multimedia Based Scoreboard Development of Four Disciplines of Execution for Journal Publication” that could be implemented for journal publication. If the journal was published with six articles, journal team had to finish the paper processing consisted of 7 papers, all of them must be ready to be designed in the third month, hence the second month would be finished 3 papers and the next 4 papers had to be finished in the next month and then given to the design team. The focus on the research was manuscript processing, because it’s track effected the design processing. It was the most important task of the journal processing, because if the processing was behind schedule, the journal would not be published on time.
