Never. Although I write messages to some friends sometimes and I only speak English when I meet them.

Not yet. I always make phone calls or leave voicemail messages in Indonesian. But, sometimes I chat with my friend in social media in English. I hope I can make phone calls in English because it looks so cool. ^_^
