Today is the sacred Friday for my wife and I. We were married on 11 September 1994 in West Java’s district of Ciamis. Teti came from the district and I came from Subang, a northern district of the same province. We first met in Bandung, the capital city of West Java. I am a year older than her.

Since we got married we’ve been living in Bandung, building a modest family life in northern part of the city. We have three children. The oldest, a daughter, is at the third semester at a nearby state university. The second child, also a daughter, is at grade 1 at a high school. And the youngest, a boy, is at grade 2 at an elementary school.

We are happy. May God bless us in pedalling this lovely life. Amen.***
