The exhibition venue take place on Galeri Salihara, Jl. Salihara No. 16 Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta. I went there on January 28th, 2010. I'm so amazed to see how Singkawang grows till today. My mother was born there and she is grew at Singkawang. I usually hear stories from her about her hometown. I really want to take my mother see her hometown someday, maybe few months later. I still have many projects and jobs that made me busy and of course i can't leave my responsibilites. I grow at Jakarta, but i really love to see my ancestors land. And after went to this exhibition, i believe that Singkawang has grown, and being a wonderful place to visit and do vacations.
