What To Look For When Starting A Profitable Online Game Business

“Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game ”- Michael Jordan

Many people like to spend time playing games, both on weekends or free time in the middle of a busy life. The gamers also consist of various ages, ranging from children to adults. Therefore, it is not surprising that the online gaming business is a very lucrative opportunity for business people.

Many entrepreneurs have proven the great opportunities that online gaming businesses offer. As proof, you can see so many internet cafe businessmen who have now turned their businesses into game centers. There, they also specifically provide computer rental services that are used to play online games.

This online game business, in particular, is a very potential opportunity if you establish it in the region. The situation in the regions is very different from the conditions in big cities. There, the people still find it difficult to reach electronic devices with sophisticated specifications that can play various types of games.

Tips for Success in Running an Online Game Business

It’s just that, promising opportunities in running an online gaming business don’t guarantee 100% success if you don’t run the business in a mature strategic manner. Last but not least, there are several factors that you need to prepare, namely:

Sophisticated Computer Devices

The first factor you need to pay attention to if you want to run a successful online gaming business is to provide a computer with high specifications. Use a computer with the latest processor that is accompanied by a quality graphics card, as well as large capacity RAM. That way, the computer can be used to run various types of heavy online games quite smoothly.

Stable and Fast Internet Access

The business you run is an online game. Besides needing a good computer, stable and fast internet access is also mandatory. Quality internet access capital guarantees customers can play games smoothly without any internet connection interruptions. Especially if your customers play IDN live game, such as poker, blackjack, baccarat and so on, a good and smooth connection is required.

Consider Providing Quality Support Peripherals

Computer with high specifications already. Stable and fast internet access has also been prepared. However, these two were still not enough. You also need to provide supporting peripherals that provide comfort in playing games.

Keep in mind, peripherals for gaming computers have different features and functions than for ordinary computers. For example, on a game keyboard, it usually comes with a mechanical design and there are special buttons that make it easier for gamers to play games.

Comfortable Room Design

The comfort of the room is something that cannot be missed. Make sure the room is equipped with air conditioning. In addition, you also need to provide a special room for gamers who smoke. Seating must also be considered. With comfortable seating, gamers will feel at home playing games for a long time.

In addition, make sure to arrange the room based on its capacity and the number of computers you have. Don’t let the room look so crowded that it looks uncomfortable.

Strategic location

The online game business that you build must have a strategic location and can be easily reached. This strategic location must also be accompanied by adequate facilities, in particular a large and safe parking area. That way, gamers who come with private vehicles, can play games without worry.

Take advantage of a companion business

The online gaming business is usually crowded with gamers who spend hours in front of a computer screen. Only a small proportion of gamers bring food and drinks. This is a companion business opportunity that you can take advantage of. You can provide a varied menu of food and drinks for them. When hungry, gamers don’t need to leave the building to find food. Everything you can provide.

Be diligent in holding game competitions

The last tip that can increase the success of your online game business is to hold competitions regularly. You can hold this competition at the local or regional level. With competition, the online game business that you run will be better known by the wider community.

Good at Communication Is the Base of Success

Good at Communication Is the Base of Success. These 3 Tips Can Shape You To Be A More Successful Young Entrepreneur

The easiest and most difficult thing to do is communicate. Understanding the interlocutor, paying attention to the interlocutor’s attention to influencing the interlocutor, is a task that must be carried out as long as communication takes place. Paul J. Mayer once said that “Communication – human relationships – is the key to personal and career success.”

Communication is a connection between people – the key to personal and career success. This time I will share tips that are easy to do if you have a connection in communication. I will start by providing the conditions that you must try to conquer.

Meeting difficult people

Have you ever met someone who was very difficult for you to deal with? Usually, they are complainers, gossips, critics, or ignorant ones. On average, they will shower you with negative things. Well, if you have this, usually, the interruption that connects is “difficulty controlling emotions.” How to deal with it? Should I communicate with these types of people?

The answer is yes! You have to do it! This type of person is the type of person you should conquer first. If you have succeeded, then you will usually find it easy to master other situations and people. What you can do to initiate communication with this type of person is 4T (Wait, Respond, Accept, and Ask back). I started with Wait. Get in the habit of waiting for about 5 seconds before responding to whatever this type of person says to you.

The goal is you will have sufficient time to help emotions. Mixing emotional jumble in communication can sometimes bring life to your life. Second, respond. Get in the habit of training yourself to respond according to the wishes of the other person. The easiest way is to do mirroring or style matching with the other person you are talking to.

Third, accept. Accept any form of speech difficult type people. Usually, in the beginning, you will feel the ant bite because you hear what he said, but hang on. Form of acceptance You can nod once or twice when this type of person conveys his ideas. Fourth, ask back. Many people don’t feel cared for. Some of those who feel they don’t pay attention will experience mental disorders. These psychiatric disorders usually have the effect of wanting to do the same for other people.

Your job is to break this chain. Difficult types of people are usually the product of the cruelty of life. Some of them may have problems with family, work, or finances. So, they vent with negative things about others. It would help if you also expressed how to ask. Begin with a nod, then ask the question “why.”

Communicate with clients

Usually, psychologically, a person will feel he has a lower position than his client. The logic is simple because the brain works with both the giver and the taker of the system. Usually, humans will experience a decrease in self-confidence if they are in the position of taker or receiver. Unfortunately, this trend will become a big problem if allowed to drag on. Potential problems that arise can be such as your lack of focus on the client’s expectations, halting conversations, to canceling contracts with clients. The loss is on your side.

If you are serious about wanting a more harmonious relationship with a client to create success in your life, do this: “Prepare, Prepare, Prepare.” Making preparations before meeting clients can start with identifying clients. What he wants, anyone who usually relates to your clients to your client’s background. The ease with which information is well known on the internet will really help you.

Communicate with suspicious spouses

One of the determining factors for success is a partner. What happens if the hard work we put in from morning to night ends in failure just because of a suspicious partner’s attitude? Of course, you are no stranger to hearing the term SSTI, Husbands Afraid of Istria or SPIDR, Husband and Wife at Home. These two concepts are closely related to facts in public life regarding suspicious partners.

If you experience this condition, all you have to do is “talk heart to heart.” Communicating with your partner, especially regarding tough compromises, cannot be done using logic. What you have to learn is to speak with your heart. Usually, the approach is the “storytelling” method. If you are a logical person, try to conquer this situation by heart. Silence your logic and start talking. Choose a comfortable place. My suggestion is the two of your favorite places are a brilliant solution!

So, are you ready for personal and career success?

It’s Not Too Late to Become an Entrepreneur

Lately, we are crammed with lots of stories of entrepreneurs who succeeded in achieving success at a young age, such as Mark Zuckerberg founder of Facebook, Evan Burn founder of The Odyssey, Jack Dorsey founder of Twitter, and many more. Not to mention young Indonesian entrepreneurs, such as Elang Gumilang founder of Elang Group, Andrew Darwis founder of Kaskus, Achmad Zaky founder of Bukalapak and others.

Is seeing the fact that more than 35 years old is too late if you start doing business now? In fact, many entrepreneurs have just started doing business at the age of more than 35 years and succeeded in achieving success.

This is also proven by the results of research conducted by the Kauffman Foundation. Based on the results of this study, it was found that start-up owners over the age of 35 have more experience that can be used as primary capital to run a business.

Richard Branson (Virgin Group CEO) also said the same thing, that mature aged entrepreneurs are more likely to achieve success in running a business because it is rich in experience and wiser in making important decisions.

Here are Some Other Reasons Aspiring Entrepreneurs Over The Age of 35 are Not Too Late to Start Doing Business
  • The amount of experience in the past will make us tend to be more practical in managing expenses, wisely preparing to budget, also knowing which opportunities are excellent and which are not related to business agreements or other negotiations.
  • As we get older, our friendship network expands. With the current social media, friends from school (from elementary school, junior high school to college) are re-connected with us and allow us to collaborate with people who share our interests, find investors, find investors, the resources needed, and get a long list of clients and potential customers, can even ask for references to get employees who are talented and have the best abilities.
  • To procure funds, mature entrepreneurs get more convenience. As in the previous point, an extensive network of friends makes it easier for us to get investors. When applying for a loan at a large bank, the process is much easier because usually, at the age of 35 years and over, we already have assets that can be used as collateral.
  • Knowledge and abilities possessed have also been honed well. They can be used as initial capital to start a business, although in the process, it still requires an effort to learn new things, especially those related to business.

With so many reasons for us to start doing business at a young age when we want to throw away the opportunity to have our own business and achieve success next?

Esports as a New Professional Business

The rapidly developing esports or electronic industry promises professional career opportunities. No longer seen as a game, esport grew into a growing industry.

Eddy Lim

A market research and consultancy company specializing in the game and esports industry in Southeast Asia and China, 41 percent of the 266 million Indonesians are casual mobile or PC gamers. Revenues for online PCs and mobile games in Indonesia reached 606 million US dollars in 2018. That number is expected to increase to 1,156 million USD in 2022.

The President of the Indonesia Esports Association (IESPA) Eddy Lim explained, electronic sports (esports) in Indonesia had actually appeared since 2000. But when it was just a game, it had not become a sport — six years starting to develop into sports. Indonesia itself has hosted game matches at the 2016 Tavisa event.

“Esports is not just playing games, but brain battles, fighting strategies. Precisely the physical training needed to improve concentration,” said Eddy while speaking at the IEL Campus Seminar, Esports: Beyond Gaming at Maranatha University, Bandung, Friday, February 8, 2019.

He said, esports is a sport of the future. This sport develops by riding on technological advances.

Profession Other Than Players

Harry Kartono

According to him, the development of esports provides opportunities for new professions. Not only as an athlete and referee but explore the business side of esports. For example, being a game organizer event organizer, also to prepare for the production of game competition.

“We invite universities to form Esports SMEs to prepare their human resources. Esports is 30 percent talking about achievements, 70 percent about the preparation of human resources in the esports industry,” he said.

The business side of esports can be explored and studied through the UKM. “Esports start from a business. Because it is down from business, the business side is very thick,” said Eddy.

In this event, four speakers explained their career in the world of esports. They are Stanley Tjia as an international referee of Esports, caster, and influencer Clara Mongstar, PBIC 2012 World Champion, who is also an alumnus of Maranatha University August Urip Santoso, and Nixia founder and NXA-Gaming team manager Fram Shaw.

Deputy Rector III of Maranatha University Robby Yussac Tallar said games are the world of the millennial generation now. Like a knife, games can be used for both good and bad things.

“Not only playing games but also developing ourselves. This is not just a game,” he said.

He hopes students and young people generally not only play but also get to know all the ins and outs of esports.

“In the coming era, everything is virtual and digital, and it’s your world,” he said.

Prize of IDR 1 billion at the 2019 University Series IEL competition

He expressed his pride for the success of the Maranatha University team, which became one of 12 universities in the 2019 Universities Series IEL competition.

MIX 360 ESPORTS, as a business entity with a commitment to developing the esports industry in Indonesia, is currently working on various initiatives to build the esports ecosystem in the country, starting from fostering professional athletes and caster esports seeds, to preparing quality esports team management. One of the first steps was by launching the 2019 IEL University Series.

Ministry of Youth and Sports (KEMENPORA) supported the 2019 IEL UNIVERSITY SERIES which is the first official and famous esports competition for university-level in Indonesia, (KOI) Indonesian Olympic Committee, the Federation of Indonesian Community Recreational Sports (FORMI), and (IESPA) Indonesia Esports Association. This competition was also approved by (AeSF) Electronic Sports Asia Federation, which later will become part of the official local university league under the auspices of the IESPA.

“To develop esports, it must first start from changing the traditional paradigm of parents and educational institutions towards esports,” said MIX 360 ESPORTS Chief Operational Officer Harry Kartono.

In the IEL 2019 University Series season 1 event, as many as 12 selected campuses were ready to send representatives to win. One of them is Maranatha Christian University.

Beyond Gaming

Two branches of the competition are Dota 2 and Mobile Legends. The 12 participating IEL Universities will be divided into two groups that will play an online preliminary round from January to March 2019. Then, the best four teams from each branch will compete in the semifinals and finals at the end of April 2019. As for the place, the final round of the IEL 2019 University Series took place at the LigaGame Arena. The total prize of Rp. 1 billion will be contested by the IEL 2019 University Series participants in this first season.

Is It True That Stock Investment is Profitable for Young Entrepreneurs?

As someone critical and intelligent, of course, the truth of a statement needs to be examined. How about you?

Have you ever gotten a call from telemarketing or anything that promises to be profitable? I think almost everyone has gotten a call like that.

But if I invite you to invest in shares, do you want to? If you immediately want it just because I asked him, it means you are not investing in stocks, but investing in my trust. And that is the wrongest and problematic thing: trusting something without researching it first.

Alright back to the question of the title of this article, “Is it true that investing in stocks is profitable?” Too bad, the answer is no. Precisely: not always!

In this article, apologize without intending black campaign or entrusted promotion, examples of shares that have proven to make investors profitable, and examples of stocks that have proven detrimental will be displayed. But remember! This is not a recommendation for you so that after reading this article to buy or sell these shares, this is just a fact.

If I mention Krakatau Steel, do you know? Krakatau Steel is the largest steel producer company in Indonesia. Do the stocks benefit the investor? Let me give a price chart.

Krakatau Steel Stocks Graphic

How to assess the benefits of owning this stock? Yes, it can be answered by looking at the first time this stock was on the stock exchange to this day, stock investors from Krakatau Steel always lose regularly. Let me take the example of other companies.

Do you know Unilever Indonesia? A consumer goods company that produces a lot of products that are used daily. I can hardly believe that there are people in Indonesia who have never been in contact with one of Unilever’s products. Is it profitable to own the shares? Here is the price chart.

Unilever Stocks Graphic

Obviously, from the growth in prices, Unilever’s stock investors benefit. Do not stop there. It turns out there is an interesting story if we want to study the movement of stock prices that are profitable for us, for example, Unilever in its past.

Unilever Indonesia (UNVR) listed on the stock exchange in 1982 for Rp 3,175. Let us illustrate by buying one lot (500 shares) in 1982. In 1989, UNVR gave 6: 1 bonus shares, which means that each has six shares will get one bonus. Then, 500 shares will be 583 shares earlier. In 1993, UNVR again distributed bonus shares at a ratio of 66.88: 1. Then, we will have 592 sheets.

In 2000, UNVR conducted a stock split of 1:10, i.e., everyone share became ten shares. So that, 592 sheets to 5920 sheets. In 2003, UNVR returned to stock split 1:10. Thus, our current number of shares is 59,200 shares. Let’s try to calculate how much dividend you got in 2014.

How much capital do you buy UNVR 1 lot? IDR 1,587,500 In 2014, UNVR distributed a dividend of Rp 701 per share, meaning that the total dividend for shares owned was 59,200 x Rp 701 = Rp 41,499,200. So what percentage is the profit of having UNVR shares without having to sell the shares? 2,614 percent!

Is it profitable to own shares? From this article, the picture is clear that wrong in choosing stocks will make us fall into losses.

The importance of learning how to choose profitable stocks is the need to invest knowledge in yourself, such as by reading a book or learning from various sources.

It is true. There are various controversies from the failure of large companies, as I demonstrated in this article. I discussed examples of other stocks that were not successful in my sixth book, titled Bandarmology: When all shares have a bookie.

Investment is like choosing and developing a duck that has a golden egg. It requires patience and sufficient knowledge to succeed — greetings for investment in Indonesia.

Pay Attention To These 7 Things So That Business With Friends Goes Success

Many people want to do business with colleagues because of proximity. It seems fun if you can run a business with a friend you already know.

However, be careful when choosing business partners. Many businesses fail because they choose the wrong business partner. Not all of your friends can be told to build a business together.

If we are digging friends to do business, try to pay attention to a number of these things so that the business can be successful and the friendship relationship is maintained.

7 Tips for Success in Building a Business with Friends

1. Friends Who Are Friends

We better not just choose a business partner according to how long we know him. Some colleagues have long been identified, but you don’t feel close. There is a new colleague, but you feel close.

Of not a few of your friends, choose partners who are genuinely friends, namely friends. People who treat us like friends and so do they. The friendship that continues to be a business relationship will be guaranteed.

Because friends are more trustworthy, he can be invited to have fun together and suffer together. Especially when the business is down, he will stay with you to rise from failure.

2. Connected and comfortable friends

If we don’t build a business with friends, you can look for other partners. However, choose those who already have chemistry, that is, partners who are under us characterfully.

You and he certainly have some differences, both in terms of background, nature, and behavior. However, when you interact with it, you can feel “connected.” We are comfortable with him and discuss with him.

Undoubtedly, we and colleagues who have “connected” and are comfortable will be able to complement each other. You can adapt to the differences between each other so that the business can run smoothly.

3. Determine Joint Vision and Mission

You and your business partner must have the same goals and targets. Try talking about what you want and what he wants. Then take a decision together to equalize that will.

Make sure there are no single destinations or targets, and different plans. Match the vision and goals in the business that you want to reach and do. Make and take a joint commitment. That way, business relationships will not be damaged because of differences in principles and interests.

4. For Roles and Responsibilities

Building a business with colleagues must be professional. Share roles in business. For example, who takes care of the financial element, who is in marketing, who is in the operational aspect, and so on.

Although running a business together, each person must find a clear role so that you can know the responsibilities of each task well.

5. Manage Capital and Profit Sharing

Pay attention to business capital. Determine the number of joint venture capital in each person from the start of the business. Do not let conflict occur because of money problems.

If the business is run together, then capital can be divided into two where every 50 percent. Likewise with profit sharing. So that business finance can be managed clearly, and each party can feel fair.

6. Create an Agreement Letter

No matter how close our relationship with friends is, we need to create an agreement letter signed on the stamp. Letters of agreement based on the law will build a professionally shackled business relationship.

Remember that business is business. Business must have a robust legal umbrella so that business partnership relationships are more dangerous. Later, contracts can be renewed, for example when there is an increase in capital and business that is growing.

7. Keep Communication When There Are Problems

His name is human, of course, one day he will be at loggerheads. Business is indeed not always smooth. There are when there are not a few problems that will test the durability of the business.

For that, make sure there are no parties to cover the problem. Business must be transparent. Keep communication in all conditions. Talk carefully about personal and business issues. Focus on exploring solutions and solving problems together.

Well, that’s tips on building a business with friends. Hopefully, we can pursue the right friends to do business. Do not just choose, because if our business partners have problems, then we will be challenging to grow your business. We better do business alone than together with the wrong person.

5 Entrepreneur Mindset and How to Build it

If we pay attention, many entrepreneurs are unsuccessful and give up quickly on the business they are running. Maybe you feel it too? Want to give up and claim defeat in the atmosphere and then live a life like so many people?

Naturally, if you think like that because indeed being an entrepreneur is not as easy as the motivator mentioned, starting it is easy but to survive, it requires a little sacrifice. And among the leading causes of the success of an entrepreneur is from within itself in the form of a “mindset” or mindset.

The mindset is a measure of the strength of an entrepreneur in taking control of the business being run. We need to develop your mindset so that your business can survive and grow.

Now I will channel five mindsets that you must have as an entrepreneur;

1. Dare to Take Risks

This is what we must put into mind in your mind. An entrepreneur is someone who dares to take risks by assuming optimism in advance that the business can certainly be achieved, positively not optimistic blind, you need to learn the risks first and the strategy to make them.

Why are not many successful people doing business? Because there are not many people who dare to take risks, you have to go into it.

2. Looking for New Opportunities

To keep the wheel of business going smoothly, mindset is always exploring new opportunities is the mindset that must be owned by each entrepreneur. Many people limit their skills and potential by merely stopping at one point. An entrepreneur needs to be sensitive to the opportunities that come and then pick up those opportunities if they are well planned.

Entrepreneurs who are not so sweet and resigned are waiting for the opportunity to come, and they are actively establishing relationships with not a few parties to explore the gold field opportunities that they can work on.

That’s why people who succeed in doing business on average have not a few sources of income, not only from one business tap because they are observant in witnessing opportunities.

3. Action Oriented

An entrepreneur/entrepreneur focuses on actions and executions not only stop at ideas. Many people are trapped in fear and stop only at the aide, and the reason is that it is not perfect, then first, and many other loser arguments.

A true entrepreneur prefers to step first and perfect while walking. Because if at the beginning it had been about to be perfect, then the business would not have happened. Because the business always feels a change to lead to goodness. Do what we can, we can’t wait too long for the word “perfect.”

4. Study continuously

One reason for an entrepreneur to fail quickly is to feel satisfied with the knowledge he has at the moment to the point that he does not want to learn and slowly unwittingly catches up with the different and then lags and dies.

A successful entrepreneur is a valid learner. He does not often learn to keep on upgrading his head. Because they realize the best investment is the neck up, not the appearance.

That is why Steve Jobs once spoke, “stay hungry stay foolish” so that we are not satisfied with the knowledge we already have.

5. Great Vision

Vision is the goals and ideals of each company. The higher the vision that is owned, the greater the obstacles that will be faced to reach all of these visions.

From here, you need a mature strategy in preparation for us to face obstacles that might occur in the future.

Embed these five mindsets into your mind so that you can succeed in business. Maybe useful.

Online Game Developer as an Alternative Entrepreneur

Hobbies are often the secret behind the success story of an entrepreneur. Hobbies will encourage someone to explore everything related to him in more depth. Are you passionate about playing games and having an entrepreneurial spirit? There is no harm in trying to develop a game.

Not a few people have opened businesses in this field besides the rather large corporations. Adhyastuti Widyaparamita, QA HD Manager of PT Gameloft Indonesia, said, three matters that need to be possessed if you want to do business in this field have extensive knowledge about the game industry, having an artistic spirit and having programming skills.

In the site, Jeff Tunnell, a computer game maker, programmer, and site designer in more depth say five real steps that need to be implemented to start an effort to develop the game.

What needs to be prepared? Follow the steps one by one.

1. Hobbies

Hobby playing games are the first step to developing a business in the field of gaming. Feelings of pleasure will make it easier for you to learn and build your imaginary gaming company. If we don’t know about the program, you can learn to create games using free trial software. You can try to upload your writing on a web page or a special forum like Unity Forums and GarageGames to introduce your work.

2. Education and Build a Resume

To be able to do a game business, we do not need to pass a certain level of education. The most important thing is to increase your resume and portfolio, for example by creating software or mini-game, learning the techniques of working web programs, working techniques for PC and GPU, C ++, 3D Studio Max, OpenGL, and Direct-X.

3. Create a Game in Your Spare Time

In this stage, you can learn to develop a game. One of the most important affairs of this stage is the learning process that we experience around the game creation process. You can also make sales on a small scale even though the results have not been so satisfying.

On the other hand, this phase will trigger your creative mind to work harder. There are a lot of self-made games that sold for a fortune. Take an example from video poker, is one of the best poker online game that was published in early 2014. Built based on a poker hobby, self-developed and hit the jackpot in the market.

4. Develop Full Time

After you successfully test it, you can start developing the game in real terms. Of course, you must be prepared with all the risks facing. In this stage, we will enjoy how difficult it is to become an entrepreneur who is not very well established. Maybe you cannot control employees and financial flows in full.

5. Focus on The Time and Energy Used for The Game That Has Been Developed

If we can go through the four previous stages, on this stage, you are ready to develop your own game in focus. Our days will be drained by developing games, designs, and marketing. Make the game that we like, and when it turns out the results of its development cannot be sold, it is very unlikely that you will be proud to have made it.

Dare to face the risks that come? If you are passionate and interested in becoming a game developer, prepare yourself by learning the science of programming and web design for your initial capital. Don’t hesitate to develop your creativity!

Success Stories of Indonesian Citizens Pioneering Culinary Company in Australia Along With His Hobby in Fish Hunter

Perth is one of the major cities in the Kangaroo State, Australia. Located in Western Australia, Perth is often referred to as a very isolated city in the world. This elemental country is thousands of kilometers apart from Sydney (3,291 km), Adelaide (2,104 km), Brisbane (3,604 km) and Canberra (3,106 km).

Compared to many large cities, Perth is even closer to Jakarta, which is 3,002 km and to Denpasar, Bali 2,584 km. The close distance to Denpasar, Perth residents, prefer to vacation in Bali rather than having to fly to Sydney or Melbourne.

Likewise, many Indonesians also live in Perth, study and work in Perth for many years, but still hold an Indonesian passport.

One of the Indonesians who lived and worked in Perth was Rudianto. This man born in Sampang, Madura, June 16, 1970, has lived in Perth for dozens of years.

To live his life in the Kangaroo country, Rudianto chose to run a culinary business of Indonesian specialties. Rudi ended the opening of Bintang Cafe Restaurant in the Victoria Park area. A restaurant that specializes in Indonesian halal food. Starting from satay, fried rice, soup until rendang is found in this location.

Expensive Rent Doesn’t Stop to Expand

“My culinary business was opened in 2005, Alhamdulillah was held until now,” said Rudianto reported by the Jambi Ekspress (Jawa Pos Group), Tuesday (12/12).
