Day 2 (March 12th) - Arrival in Tokyo


We arrived at Narita airport, Tokyo, at about 7am in the morning. The time in Tokyo is GMT+9, which is two hour ahead of Jakarta. Due to the lack of sleep, most of us felt quite exhausted. The temperature in Tokyo was very cold for us who lives in a tropical region, but thankfully I brought a very good wool coat with me (which I wore almost all the time in Tokyo, except when sleeping).

ACM ICPC World Final 2007 - Tokyo, Japan

Our victory in the ACM ICPC Regional Contest in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, opened our way to the world final. Our team, consisting of Felix Halim, Andoko Chandra, and Andrian Kurniady (Me), representing Bina Nusantara University, was invited and attended this year's ACM ICPC World Final in Tokyo, Japan. We were accompanied by Mr. Raymondus Kosala and Ms. Yenlina Prasetio from BiNus. This wonderful event, which includes a one-week trip to Tokyo, produced quite a lot of stories to be written here.
