WELCOME at MY PAGE ! Today is May 18th 1998. I am in Jakarta, Indonesia and I am starting this page with the intention to fill it with legends and stories from various parts of Indonesia in the English language. I hope that there will be small or even big internetters who soon will enjoy these stories just as the little fellows above do. The first story is : Toar and Lumimuut (on air since May, 19th 1998). The second story is : The Lokon mountain and the Kelabat mountain (on air since May, 21st 1998). Further on air since today (May, 23rd 1998) are two more stories : Kokokuk and Wuwung Sewe, the Fisherman The latest story (May, 25th 1998) is The Taunbird and the Ngulngulbird
