Sandro’s career revolves around advising people to make their best investment decision in stock market. His goal right now, but not limited to, is to build a massive empire out of thin air. His passion is to help people to progress at least 1% everyday towards their ultimate life purpose. He occasionally walks on fire, speaks in conferences, and makes chronic typo misteaks.
Sandra is an ENFJ lady who obtains fulfillment by bringing the best out of people. She believes that every soul is unique, thus makes her love meeting people. She believes that life is lufrednow and the dress is black and blue (not white and gold). Her goal? To nurture young souls in finding their purpose in life and to help her husband, including, but not limited to build an empire out of thin air.
I’ve known Sandra since forever (since 1st grade actually). I thought of her as my sister, and we were inseparable (until I moved to Jakarta for high school). We were neighbors; our families were friends; we attended the same school and class as well; we went to sunday school together, and even matched our clothes and accessories. We even got our mom taking turn picking us up from school. We attended same extracurricular lessons almost everyday. I ate lunch or slept in her house, and vice versa. Basically, my childhood was filled with this girl.
We have shared many fond memories ever since childhood, so I couldn’t be more happier to be a part of another eventually-be-a-fond memory in her life: her marriage! 🙂
Sandra is one of the sweetest & most caring person I’ve ever known. She has a big heart, big dreams, and has accomplished so much in life. Her growth in spirit is also one of the things to look up to and I know she will do even bigger things with her betrothed.
I think they are truly meant for each other (e.g. they even got similar name!). What else is there? 😀
I couldn’t be more excited to take part in the wedding. This marriage will sure be one heck of a ride; but with each other’s company, trust, and blessing from Lord Jesus – you two will surely enjoy the ride! Hope nothing but the best and most wonderful everlasting marriage for both of you.
Recalling back to when I was a freshman in uni, my VERY first impression of both bride and groom weren’t that great to be honest, haha! I remember marking Sandro as a loud, stubborn-Jakarta guy who didn’t seem to take anything seriously; and Sandra, all I know was that she came from this highschool literally named “fertilizer” (in Bontang, wherever that is), then she became this ‘it girl’ I thought I would never hang out with. Her jaw drops at whatever news you tell her.
Little did I know, nine years later, I’m still hanging out with them now and even learning so much from their lives and ever-growing character. Sandra and I were in a same cell group and though we are two very different people (as in: she hired a cameraman for her graduation day while I didn’t have a single proper self-portrait during uni), somehow we’re able to share stuffs from life struggles to silly laughs.
After years of friendship, I now view Sandra and Sandro as those kind of people who won’t let circumstances crush them nor daily routine wipe away their dreams. They’re progressing, joyful, and blessed.
They started as good friends, and well, I wouldn’t say that didn’t see it coming. I think everyone except them saw it.
May the wedding day be full of laughter, wedding vows phrased beautifully, nobody in heels stumble, catering is sufficient, and no angry family members. May you both live happily ever after.
I first met Sandra when I joined our first class together as freshmen. I wasn’t sure what kind of glue that held us up, but I think it’s because we were bound with our “teenage drama queen” life and similar academic schedule since we were always in the same class from freshman to our senior year. For me, Sandra is very supportive, caring, and trustworthy. She would never judge someone before clarifying the issue and would definitely accompany you whenever you are in need, which is why I’m forever grateful to have her as my closest friend.
The day they started to call each other “twin”, I knew that there were something more than just a casuaI friendship. I still remember when I asked Sandra about her feelings for Sandro. She confirmed that their relationship was just casual, probably because each of them was still seeing each other :)) I know that Sandro plays an important part during Sandra’s ups and downs, even to small matters like accompanying Sandra when she wanted to drive in toll road for the first time.
I’ve seen them growing up together as friends, so I’m really happy that they finally decided to tie the knot. From the very beginning, God has been in charge of their friendship and love story. I wish that their love for each other grow stronger and be a blessing for each other. Keep seeking God’s will for your family and have a wonderful life ahead, Twins!
I’ve known Sandra since 2nd grade elementary to senior high school. For almost 10 years we were always on the same class. During our times together, we always met each other everyday; but with Sandra, we can be a friend, a bestfriend, and in the end we’re just like sisters because we have the same perspective about life-long learning to have positive mind, to be a positive person in every condition of life. She is my bestie who can put up love every time as a sister.
I knew Sandro for the first time when he came together with Sandra from Bandung to Jakarta to watch Hillsong concert together. At that time, they were just friends. 😀
Sandra & Sandro were friends and they called each other ‘twin’ just because they have one different letter on their name: SandrA and SandrO, just A and O.
The fact that they are bloggers, once they made an entry for each other’s blog with a title: “tulisan buat calon pasangan Sandro ” (by Sandra) and “tulisan buat calon pasangan Sandra ” (by Sandro) with no hidden agenda at all. Now here they are, Sandra and Sandro the lovely couple.
I hope their wedding will be a blessing. One that brings blessing for everyone not only in the ceremony, but also in their marriage life. Hopefuly it’s full of love and joy. Yeay! We love you Sandra-Sandro!
I first met Sandra in a retreat event from Sion Ministry during our undergraduate time in ITB. My first impression about her was, “OK she’s that popular-girl type, who will never get along with an introvert like me”, hahaha.
Honestly, I could not clearly remember about how or when was exactly that we become this close now; but I remember all the time when we were growing together. All the tears, fights, laughs, hugs and everything with her :’). Even until now we are still growing together. She is my first person to call when I am in trouble, even if the trouble was made (many times) by me in the first place. I firmly believe that her unjudging heart will see me more as her priority to help than to judge. She is a place that I can call as one of my “homes”.
Kens, trust me… writing this is not easy. I feel that my heart is starting to be filled with a lot of feelings. I feel so touched, happy, grateful and amazed by how God has worked through both of our life. I can feel His love now, simply by writing this for you :’). Remember those times when we pray together to God for this moment? He truly listens to us all the time Kens. She will always be my amazing best friend because she taught me a lot about life. Now that we are close to one of the big moments in our life, there is nothing that I can wish for you except for your happiness: not happiness in the easiness of marriage life, but the happiness because you know that the same God, who has brought you to this, will always be on your side 🙂
I’ve known both of them for such a long time and known how they’ve been transforming from bestfriend to twin and then partner in life. It is funny and lovely. Back then when we were still in college, I remember I jokingly said to one of our friends that it would be so funny if Sandra and Sandro got married in the future because they can just write “Sandra/o” in their invitation card. It is like they were made for each other.
I don’t know if there is any other human in this planet who knows their love story better than me (lol/kidding/sorry), but I am sure that I know a lot – maybe because we are friends in real life. Honestly, I literally learn a lot from both of them. They love to build their character and share all their knowledge to people around them. I am sure that God has a vision in their relationship so they can build each other to reach that vision.
I am so excited for the wedding of Sandra/o! Two of my bestfriends will walk the aisle with the grace of God 🙂
Wishing God’s love abundantly upon both of you so you can see and treat each other only by His love (honestly I want to cry while writing this, guys, hahaha). Life can be so hard sometimes, but knowing God will always be with you will give you unlimited source of hope and strength.Your wedding day will come and go, but may your love forever grow. Love you guys 😀
What Riesyanita Maharani think about #SandraSandro
I knew both Sandra and Sandro in our Christian cell group in ITB. We’re not really close in our early years of college, maybe because we were too busy with our own stuff. Me and Sandra got close when we hit our last year in college when we’re working on our thesis. We ate together, done sleepover, prayed together, hang out together, and many more!
She has been the people I always talk to, especially after we just graduated from college.
Sandra is a very caring person. She is a good listener and also a good counselor (although sometimes she doesn’t know what to say at first, but after a while she will give you wise advice).
Sandra always try to do her work well. It brings good influence for people around her. And Sandra is a verryyy popular person, not only in campus, but also in her workplace, cell group, etc. Thanks Kens (my special nickname for her 😘) for entrusting me to be your bridesmaid 😄
A funny story from back then, I cried to Sandra because I doubted my boyfriend (now my husband) but God’s grace turned it into a joyful relationship until now; then it appeared that Sandra was also in the same situation. I know the ups and downs in their relationship.
In the end of the day, they got an affirmation from God that they were meant for each other. So they decided to be unified in a sanctified marriage. I’m really a grateful friend! Now you can write in the invitation “SANDRA/O” 😆😆
For the wedding day, I wish your marriage won’t be a memory just for both of you, but also for your family, and everyone coming. It’s not about the event/food/dress, but the blessings from God that pours down onto your marriage 😊
For marriage life, oh just give it to God and believe that the best things will surely happen for you two. Instead of focus on what other people think “what your marriage should be”, it will be more delightful if your marriage corresponds to what God wants! 😊😇
It was at ITB Student Club Open House in 2009 when I first met Sandro. At that time, I was waiting for my highschool friend from Faculty of Arts and Design, but my phone signal was so bad that I couldn’t contact him at all. Suddenly I met Sandro when he was alone, then we got acquainted and he said that he also came from the same faculty as mine (Faculty of Mining and Petroleum Engineering). It didn’t take long for us to enjoy talking to each other. From that day on, the brotherhood continues.
It’s a blessing to have a brother like Sandro. Honestly speaking, God has used him a lot to reform my “basic” worldview and purposes. This is a very important aspect of my life. I was a shy guy back then, and from him I learned how to be assertive, to have big dreams and to be confident. Sandro also inspired me to follow Jesus in campus youth ministry after I saw his life changed after attending a youth camp.
If I hadn’t met Sandro, I wouldn’t have been what I am right now.
Sandra was one of the prettiest girl in ITB. There were many boys: juniors and seniors, all queued up for her; but it is different with Sandro. Although Sandro had a close relationship with Sandra, he wasn’t interested on her at all.
The friendship between them was so close that they even had their own nickname: “The Twin”. Because of that brother-sister-like relationship, people didn’t expect them to be a couple, including me.
Then God interfered.
God himself orchestrated their love story through many occasions and gave Sandro courage through many mighty prayers in order to break the friendzone status to a new height! Sandra then accepted Sandro’s proposal to be her life-partner.This happened because of God’s initiative from the beginning, therefore their relationship is still standing strong to date, even after so much struggles between themselves.
If you want to know what a love story really looks like? Learn from them. 🙂
I am so happy with their wedding!
After all of the struggles, all of the ups and downs, the wedding day will finally come.
I wish Sandra-Sandro a blessed marriage that potrays what the bible said about the relationship between Jesus Christ as the head and His church as the bride. I wish they have a Godly offspring and inspire other couples to follow God’s path of glory. Amen.
I went to the same university as Sandro and Sandra. Sandro was my first close friend in Faculty of Mining & Petroleum Engineering and we went to the same Christian cell group during our years in ITB. I consider Sandro as highly popular and sociable, because I knew Sandra from him. Sandro always calls Sandra with the name “TWIN”– and that’s kind of sweet.
I’ve known Sandro’s love story ever since the beginning of his prayer to God for his life time partner; and witnessing God’s answer through Sandra made me feel inspired. They were once best friends, turned out to be husband & wife! I think it’s everyone’s dream to have a life time partner that can be your best friend too.
I am excited to see what’s ahead. I believe this couple can always be the inspiration and example of faithfulness & perseverance.
I first met Sandro in College Christian Fellowship at ITB Student Orientation event. I was in the same group with Sandro, because he was the mentor there. First impression, he is really cheerful and talkative. I enjoy that group with him as the group leader, but I kept my distance because I don’t really like this kind of person.
But as time goes by, I become his mentee. A lot of things happen. I am very selective at choosing my close circle. And now, he is one of a few people that I can trust on about my life.
Well, they called each other as twin, just because they have similar nickname and similar type of person. I have predicted they will be together in the future.
I’m happy to see them together, I see two same persons with only different gender. I think she is really a part of his ribs.
I wish they can build heavenly kingdom in this world, and it starts from their own small family.
At first I didn’t know bang Sandro that much, I saw him as a serious but funny guy. As time goes by, I learn that he has passion in business, he even owned several business during college years, and became my role model for my friends who wanted to do business too. Long story short, I got involved in a project with him which allows us to communicate more frequently. Apparently, he’s way better and more mature than his look, haha.
When I heard that Bang Sandro and Kak Sandra were entering courtship, the first thing that comes to my mind was “ah yes they were made for each other!”. But you know what? Although on the outside they look very similar in character, they got their problems too. I know that they can overcome it and that makes me adore them more as a couple. My belief has gotten firmer that no human is perfect, so no relationship is perfect either; but when God is allowed to be involved, He will make everything beautiful in its time.
Wishing a fun-with-God marriage, a fruitful one, and an everlasting marriage that glorifies God.
