1. Semasa berkemas-kemas fail, saya terjumpa fail ucapan penutup saya semasa berkursus di Jepun.

2. Kursus dua bulan setengah sahaja, tetapi diberi peluang berucap mewakili peserta kursus dari beberapa buah negara.

3. Semasa hari-hari terakhir saya setelah 30 tahun dalam kerajaan, saya sediakanlah deraf ucapan, namun tidak diberikan peluang tersebut. Apa perasaan anda?.

We are among the lucky people selected from all over the world to represent our country in OIC,

DP Division Manager 1999

Okinawa, island of the hibiscus
Strong typhoon really scared us

Our stay in OIC
Short sweet and juicy

Our class in DP manager
Will always be remember

Two months may be shorter
However we are managers
So we are so special
Coordinated by four  coordinators

Miyagi-san in the beginning
Gushi-san during the planning
Tokumori-san for the touring
Yakabi-san the ever lasting

Yamamoto-san always smile, cool and never anger
Yamada-san sub-course leader
Both of you manage us the managers
Not forgetable Hasegawa-san course director
Itoyama-san the training officer

Tonight is our last
Time gone very fast
Hope to stay here everlast
But many task waiting us

Live here will become me the past
Sayonara is hardly  to discuss
My be jamata just for us
If God permit us
Meet again between catches……..

To all kenshuin
JICA Alumni to join
Wish to meet again next time

This is the time to remenber
We all are managers
Either now or in the near future
But…..hopefuly not forever
Tomorrow may become director

Domo arigato gozaimasu ta.
