It was on 23 Agustus 2009 that I started my wordpress blog.
I have actually started making websites eve r since December 1996 (that’s way back in the “only html” time). NOW things are much easier, and enjoyable! I am a retired petrochemical consultant and a computer (internet) hobbyist.
Most of my blogs will relate to my late father: SAM RATU LANGIE and late mother: MARIA RATULANGIE-TAMBAJONG. They were more interesting personalities than I am. But still I will have a category of my own, in which I will write those silly things that just flashes through my mind.
I will also occasionally make use of the Indonesian language, my mother tongue, and I will try to minimize the use of the (fastly developing) Jakarta slang.
Since I am an oldy I actually have a lot of stories to tell. I will also add Indonesian folks tales to my blog. Those tales, told by others (with references) I have translated into English because I know that there are many people who appreciate folks tales. They do, like I do, indeed show a lot about the character of the people involved. But NO! I am not an expert in this field I am only INTERESTED in this field.
I have two “HOMES”: the first is in Jakarta. Here I live in Pondok Indah (South Jakarta) with a son and his wife and their three (mostly enjoyable) kids.
My eldest son lives (officially) in Depok, which is the town close to Jakarta where he has a lovely appartment close to the Universitas Indonesia.
Another son is now in Toronto, Canada, working at Alcatel-Lucent.
But I have another HOME in Manado you may see it when you click here.
OR if you want to have a look into my “BLOGGERS’s CHAOS” , just give it a click.
Anyway I thank God that He kept me in a relative healthy condition, as is also my dear husband of more than 50 (yes, fifty) years
