Ernest Prakasa & The Oriental Bandits – Post-Event Notes (Part 1)
I will write about #GKJ9Feb in three separate posts. The first one is the credit title. I want the world to know, that I owe:
JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY. Nuff said.
My wife Meira Anastasia. My catalyst. My ever-so-dependable wing(wo)man. My loyal partner for the last 11 years.
My daughter Sky Tierra Solana. My 1/3.
My mom, dad, & sister: Wahyudi Hidayat, Jennie Lim, & Audrey Jiwajennie.
My manager Dipa Andika. The ice to my fire. The one who’s responsible in making sure that everything is taken care of, so that I can focus on my performance. Without him, my head will be torn apart.
My personal assistant Fauzan Taufik. The one who gets everything done & rarely dissapoints.
My babysitter Sulis “Umi” Sumartini, who inspired a 10-mins of hard-rockin’ materials.
