I pay a visit to Japan from 9 to 21 November 2008. From 10 to 15 November I attend an advanced training on scanning electron microscope at JEOL Datum Ltd, Tachikawa-shi, Tokyo, Japan. I also attend signing ceremony of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and commerative symposium between Osaka University and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia at Graduate School of Engineering Science in Toyonaka campus on 20 November 2008. Finally, the MoU was signed after 3.5 years of my initiative to make a collaboration with Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University — one of the prestigious university in Japan and in the world. This MoU is not possible without any support from Professor Michio Matsumura and also Professor Shigeru Ikeda of Research Center for Solar Energy Chemistry, Osaka University.
