Is it possible for us Indonesians to speak English with an American accent? Which would you prefer having, an American accent or an Indonesian accent? or others? what do you think about this? I'd like to hear from you.

lol, So which one is more annoying, an American accent or a Javanese accent? smile
What is your favorite accent? What would the ideal accent, that Indonesians should have, be? How should Indonesians sound? Any rules on this?
I appreciate the replies guys. Just trying to keep the chat alive & interesting.
