Napak Tilas Main Event: Sharing and Leaving a Legacy

Solichin's Children and Grandchildren in front of Bapqk's house in Nglawak

This is the main event of our “Napak Tilas” trip: visiting my father-in-law’s village in Desa Nglawak, Kertosono, East Java, and meet the entire big family in family luncheon and dinner.

In these two events, my father shared about his values and learnings of life, one which have elevated him from very modest village boy to high-ranked government official, Indonesian’s traditional puppetry figure and a father, successfully raised his 3 children. He is indeed leaving a great legacy. We’re proud of you, Bapak.
