Monica Oemardi - 1 week - June 1974

I was born on June 16th, 1974 in Jakarta, Indonesia as a 1st child to Oemardi & Věra Grossová. A mix couple of Indonesian & Czech.

Monica, Alena (Hamsikova) Goldbachova, Vera (Grossova) Oemardi, Oemardi, Vera (Hamsikova) Grossova

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.
