A Life Less Ordinary (Part 1)

Hello, it's been a while! It's me again, Parno, and here's the story of my life. I was born in a simple family and I grew up on Nusa Indah street. In my younger days, just like any other kids in Pontianak during the 80s, I spent time watching anime such as Kamen Rider, Google V, Space Cops series from Gavan to Saider and there were also Getter Robo and Mazinger Z.

I had a good time watching all of them, but as time went on, I found it hard to follow all the series. At that time, anime and movies for children were in the form of video tape and one actually had to rent them. 

Nusa Indah Street that I knew was surrounded by a lot of entertainment! It was easy for boys to have some fun. The game arcade wasn't very far, so after I stopped watching anime, frequenting the game arcade became my next hobby. Loved it there! Was so engrossed until I forgot to keep track of time. It was as if I lived my life just for this very moment.

Everyday, when my mother was at home, I'd always ask for money. Father was often far away from home because he ran a private ship expedition where he delivered goods to customers from those remote and rural areas. While he was doing that, here I was, playing the games at the arcade. I couldn't care less. My adolescence years were great!

Me, during school days...
