Alhamdulillah, finally I succeed to finish my report due to the dateline. To finish this report, I’ve facing a slightly problem but I manage to deal with it.
First of all, I would like to say a high present’s gratitude to God for my sole being and made me able to learn new things everyday, and without His will, I wouldn’t do what I am doing today and getting chance to learn. I also would like to thank my lecturer because give me chance to become chef of the day. I also would like to say thank you to all my friends because they gave me 100% co-operation when they were working with me. Otherwise, they also gave me a lot of important information for my report. Without their information my report will become incomplete. Also I would like to thank to my parents for their non-stop moral support.
Without this entire people, it would have been an impossible for me to even start or finish my COD report. For the second time I would to say thank you to all of you because always support me. God bless you.
