I was born on June 16th, 1974 in Jakarta, Indonesia as a 1st child to Oemardi & Věra Grossová. A mix couple of Indonesian & Czech.
This is how i remember my Grand Mother Věra Hamšiková (the one sitting beside my Father). As i lived in Indonesia and she lived in Czech, i only meet her a couple times before she passed away in 1982 when i was 8 years old. And sadly, she was the only Grand Parent i got the chance to meet.
I used to love dancing when i was a kid. This is me dancing Balineese Dance.
This is my Father, Oemardi. An Indonesian man born at Bandung, West Java on March 11th, 1930 as 3rd child of 4 to Dharmopranoto & Siti Minah.
He had 2 older sisters : Soekarni Dharmopramoto (1926) & Soeprapti Dharmopranoto (1928). And 1 younger sister : Mukilah Heriniati Dharmopranoto (1936 – 2006).
Oemardi served in the Indonesian Army from 1950 to 1970, when he married my Mother. Because at that time Army Officers were not allowed to marry a foreigner.
My Father led the Indonesian Independence Day ceremony as a Military Attache at Czechoslovakia , 1969 :
This is Visible Honour awarded by Indonesian 1st President, Soekarno :

My Mother was born on January 6th, 1951 at Prague. She was the only child to Emil Gross (II) & Věra Hamšiková

“One of the Greatest gifts I’ve ever gotten is My Daughter: – Ace Frehley
Yes, True. My Daughter is my Greatest Gift. My Angel, My Proud, My Strength..
Here is my Louisa. My last edition. My 3rd born. She was born on November 3rd, 2008 at Pondok Indah Hospital. 3 years appart from her sister. She weighs 3400 gram and 49 cm long.
Her full name is Louisa Charlotte Putri Wijaya. Also like her sister’s name, it was given by both of her Grand Mothers. Louisa Charlotte from My Mother, and Putri from my Mother In Law. Wijaya is her father’s name.
Louisa was always her sister’s copycat. She always wanted to do everything like her sister. Not because she wanted to compite her, but mostly because she wanted to be a part of Nicolle’s activity.
So when Nicolle was doing Ballet, she wanted Ballet too..
She was active in Marching Band from Kindergarten to Elementary. This is the only school activities she didn’t copycat her sister.
In 4th Grade, she decided to start Gymnastic like her Sister
And just like her sister, she enrolled for Taekwondo at the same time too..
She is my Miss Singing, Miss Happy girl, Miss Active girl turning 10 soon.
