Hi Ray and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I've no experience of the birds in Indonesia, but it looks a bit like a waterhen, maybe White-breasted Waterhen? Hopefully someone will be along soon to help you out.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.
