Hi, I am David, as you can see at the URL of this blog. My full name is David Orlando Kurniawan. I was born on 24th July 1995 (here’s the only place where I mention my birthday beside Google) in Surabaya, so you might have guessed that I am currently at college. Yes, I am studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

I am totally a mixture of races. My father is a pure Chinese while my mother is a pure Balinese. I spent the first 5 years of my life in Surabaya (and Sidoarjo), and somehow that made me a bit like a Javanese. Some of my friends even said first time they look at me, they thought I am Javanese. They also said I have a little “medok” accent. Some of them also make fun of this, like I am hitachi (hitam tapi china|black but chinese). Hahaha, I am totally okay anyway, even I am proud of that.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog. You may find it interesting, boring, annoying, or whatever, but still thank you for visiting. If you have any feedbacks, do not hesitate to inform me. Thank you!
