Alhamdulillah, all praise is due to Allah for consenting hubby a Doctorate degree. Hubby has officially graduated from his 3 years doctorates studies and now he is entitled to use the title "doctor".

His public defense a.k.a final viva were held on 25th August. I attended hubby's presentation for the sake of taking his pictures only as I don't understand a thing about his research. Mind you, I'm an aeronautical engineering student while hubby is river/environmental engineering student *peribahasa bagai langit dengan bumi sangat sesuai di aplikasi kan dalam konteks ini*.
+- sebab tak faham sangat, maka cam whore sajalah -+
His topic is "Evaluation and Development of Indices to Assess The Ecological Health of the Pahang River, Malaysia". He presented the ppt slides for about 50 minutes and then another 20-30 minutes were allocated for Q&A session.

Hubby prepared some questions beforehand and requested me to ask him questions based on what he have prepared *just in case if no one from the audience stood up to ask questions during the Q & A session*. It turns out that quiet a number of questions were thrown to him that I don't have to pretend asking questions to him as planned.

Hubby manages to answers all the questions asked although there are one time when his supervisor helped him out in providing more appropriate answers. Most of the questions were asked by his former lab members.

After the Q&A session is over, his SV congratulates hubby and some of his friends congratulates me *ala-ala di sebalik kejayaan seorang suami ialah kerana seorang isteri gitu*. Padahal they should congratulates his SV for guiding hubby throughout these past 3 years.

The graduation ceremony were then held at Hakozaki Campus, Kyushu University on 15th September and it was not as glorious as it is in Malaysia. It was just a simple ceremony with no robes, flowers, stalls and whatsoever *so hubby I gi sewa sendiri jubah kui3x*. Scrolls were given only to the representatives of each course.

Another graduation ceremony were held at his department to give the scrolls individually. This special graduation ceremony were held at the Department of Environmental Engineering, Ito Campus, Kyushu University .

I didn't attend both of his graduation ceremony because I have to go to the lab. Besides, hubby insisted me to go to lab rather than wasting my precious time to be with him on his graduation ceremony.

To make it up with him, we've made a special photo shoot for SN's family at Ito Campus, Kyushu University during the weekend. It's a good idea because not so many people were around and so it is easier for us to strike any pose without embarrassing our self in front of other students .

I borrowed A/Hafizal's robe and pretend as if I've finished my study as well when the fact is I got hundred thousands of things to do before I can finally be awarded the "Dr" title as well next year Insya Allah. Hubby has been my no 1 idol in study because he were able to graduate with flying colors during his first degree, master degree and even in his doctoral degree.

Psssstttt : dulu masa hubby grad master (baru tunangan), I sanggup pergi ke Yogya untuk attend graduation ceremony dia *padahal masa tu excited nak gi sana sebab nak shopping barang2 untuk wedding*.
