Thank You...

Dear Parents & Students & Friends of Ria MusicDesign Studio,

I would like to say thank you very much for your support for me & my family during this hard time. It was such a shocking news that I had to left Melbourne so suddenly.

My dearest father passed away on Tuesday 22nd June at 3.45am in Jakarta, Indonesia. I had no idea that he had left this world as I was on the plane from Melbourne to Jakarta. The original plans was I had a flight booked to Jakarta on Sunday 27th June & we made plans to travel around Indonesia for 2 weeks. My dad was looking forward to travel with the 3 of us: me, mom & my brother.

During his last few days in the hospital, he watched the last 3 of my videos that I posted on Youtube:
1) Burung Kakak Tua (Cuckatoo)
2) Bengawan Solo (Tribute to Gesang)
3) Naik-naik ke Puncak Gunung

I posted these videos hoping that he would feel happy & light and not thinking about his conditions. Mom told me that whenever dad viewed these video, he cried... I hope he is proud of me :)

I have been in Jakarta for about 3 weeks now to spend time with my mom & brother. I will be flying off to Melbourne on Wednesday 21st July and I will be teaching piano on the next day, Thursday 22nd July. I am excited to teach my students again. We are going to organize Mid-Year Recital in August & End-of-Year Recital in November plus lots of piano exams in between.

Thank you once again for all the love & support that you all gave for me & and my family.
