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 :
