This website gives you a quick summary of the Ichwanyah family, mainly three peeple: my mum (Stella) and grandparents (Listianah and Stefanus). The Ichwansyah name comes from my grandfather's (Stefanus) middle name. Details are not clear on why our last name became my grandfather's middle name. I got my fathers last name instead (Hidayat) but I mostly identify myself with my mum's side of the family.
My family is from Indonesia though we do have some Chinese in our ancestry from my grandfather's side. My aunt, who married into the family, is Japanese so two of my cousins are also part Japanese. Most of my family live in Indonesia and it is mainly my grandmother's children's families who live here.
The first person to arrive was my uncle, Marcel (oldest son of Listianah and Stefanus, brother to Stella). He arrived in 1997 by plane. We (my mum, grandparents and I) came in 2007 when I was 2.
