KompasOtomotif - Life is the company's largest automotive bigwigs in Indonesia, never imagined before Djasmin Suparno. Although already served in command of the company helm, Abong, as he was familiarly called, was admitted far from successful.

"I do not like what successes, there are still many young people who have become CEO, if I may rather hockey," chirped Abong to KompasOtomotif in casual conversation at the headquarters of PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM), Sunter, North Jakarta, yet this old.

Small Abong born in Singkawang, West Kalimantan, July 7, 1961. He was the second child, first son of seven children. His father haberdasher, sells a variety of basic food needs for local residents. After the period of 1965, Singkawang shrouded dark cloud, the situation there became deserted, many people are choosing to move out of town.

The father also decided to move to Jakarta, because it no longer profitable trade in Singkawang. The decision was taken when Abong still sits in second grade, so he and his sister asked to stay first in Singkawang, while the father moved with his mother and younger siblings first to Jakarta.

After two years of living with her sister, Abong followed to Jakarta in between her aunt. "It used to be that to Jakarta rose wooden ship, aircraft are still rare and expensive, so it is not affordable. The journey taken by it, if not one of the three or four nights at sea, arrived at the port of Sunda Kelapa," recalls Abong.

In Jakarta, Abong admitted living in a family that is not more than enough. His father had to work hard to support seven children were borne. Since grade 1 elementary school, Abong get used to help parents selling in stores, since the afternoon, after school until evening, when closed shop.

Thanks to this habit, unconscious talent Abong trade has already begun. Adolescence, Abong more familiar with their surroundings, socialize with other traders around his father's store. "So if there is a visitor first pass with small children, toy cars sold our father turn on. So that if his son crying, his father wanted to buy," joked Abong.

Never been in a while, when it was in high school, when again keeping the store, come thugs ruling on location, ask quota contributions from the merchants.

But, there are other alternatives, namely through the exam PMDK (search Interest and ability) to be accepted directly at Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), which qualify for public universities without selection.

Heard there is an alternative, Abong then asked his parents to move from private schools into the SMA 2, Olimo, City, Jakarta. SMA have been many students who study there, often escapes in PMDK exam.

"It used to be a lot of my friends that the Batak, but it is a good school. Graduate students who qualify Sipenmaru lot and PMDK. I deliberately choose PMDK because you want a sure-sure, because if tuition in private, parents will not be able, "Abong said.
