When I lived in the cultural city of Jogjakarta 2000-2009, I acquainted with the art environment. On the fate and God’s grace, I feel lucky due to I have some art work experiences such as playing some roles for stage, indie movies, and sitcom on local TV. 🙂 I had a dream to be a movie star. Oops! 😀
