It looks like the Common Periwinkle.

Can we move this kind of plant to a pot and hoping it to grow into bush ? Does it has any seeds or what ? Thank you

Yes, I've had them potted up, and if I'm remembering right, mine did set seeds. It can make a nice hanging basket plant.

I don't know, but maybe it is growing in Indonesia, but with a different name. I found this on the web:

"Vinca Flower, in Indonesia known with different names such as flowers soldiers, copper flower, or china's flower essence."

Your plant could also be this:

it is commonly called here as "Tapak dara", supposed to be medicinal, (was popular for diabetic cases long time ago) but I wont suggest that, as it is actually quite toxic (it contains vincristine, vinblastine {an anty-cancer chemotherapy agent among others} , I've seen few cases with toxic or allergic reaction.
easy to propagate by seed but also by cuttings, those white or pink variety sometimes grows as road side weeds all around sumatera.
