Today, against my expectation, I received an e-mail from Asia-Pacific Development Information Programme which informs me that I have been selected to participate in the Asia Source II Camp in Sukabumi. Below you can read some quotes from the e-mail.
Dear Kemas Yunus Antonius,
It is with great pleasure we would like to invite you to participate in the Asia Source II camp in Sukabumi, Indonesia, between 22nd and 30th of January 2006. You have been selected to participate in Track 1.
Thank you again for your application. We were very pleased to have a very large number of high quality applications: we received over 300 applications from NGO and SME professionals and staff working at the local level across South Asia and South East Asia.
This news has surprised me a little bit as in the beginning I became pessimistic that I would be selected to join the event based on my experience and skills compared with other (potential) applicants. So, however it would be my honor to be a part of this event.
FYI, I heard this event first from my friend Yadi and we both agreed to apply together for the event. I don’t know if he also could join, as until now he does not tell me yet about it. But I hope he does. Good luck, Yad!
So, is there anyone else who has been invited to attend the Asia Source 2, of course excluding me, from Indonesia? Perhaps we could share some thoughts.
