    Recommended Indonesian Alcohol Brands

    Gordon's Gin, which is one of the top 10 gin sold in the world, is now brewed in Indonesia for the Indonesia market. I gave it a try these past few weeks and survived. :)

    KITAP - The "Unlimited" One

    It may be earlier than that. I have checked my KITAP and my date to report is indeed in April 2021. However as an ITAP can be extended as early as 3 months before its expiration and as late as 1 working day before it, the "free report" follows the exact same rule. I was lazy (and busy) for my...

    Would you travel to Indonesia now? Should I stay, or should I go now...

    It's exactly the point Puspa and kudos to you to remember it, even though after 9 months in the pandemic you would think that people would have understood it. It's start to be really tiring to see people displaying so much selfishness and to hear people not caring to put others at risk. For the...

    KITAP - The "Unlimited" One

    By law PNBP are reviewed every three years. It means that every 3 years the fee charged for an ITAP baru may be increased. Today it's Rp 5 juta, in 6 years it may be 7 or 10 juta... or more. The free report will remain a free report so the Rp 10 jt for the "lifetime ITAP" is a pretty good value...

    Are Trolls Valuable?

    At the time he was indeed working for a NGO which promotes democracy, good governance and helps advance democratic rights for citizens of developping countries. Though it's not required to be an arse to fulfill the function, it's apparently not an obstacle too.

    Are Trolls Valuable?

    Like you I wouldn't classify him as a troll. To me a real troll is primarily posting to provoke, to trigger emotional responses and Brigadier wasn't. Also he always believed in what he was posting, while many trolls just don't. I don't deny many of his posts were inflammatory but I disagree if...

    Are Trolls Valuable?

    It is him. No doubt, and it would probably comes back to your memory if I call him by his main moniker (or should I say his main character?)... Brigadier van der schnoof. This was his last thread and appearance in our community.

    Why dont Indos give back change?

    Indeed. A Celengan in the form of a rooster is a bit weird.

    Why dont Indos give back change?

    In Manado, all our celengans are the traditional pig, but to my great surprise, I have found some pretty nice one too in JKT.

    Why dont Indos give back change?

    By law banks can't refuse to take them and get regularly reprimanded by Bank Indonesia for not respecting the regulation. In order to fly below the radar and avoid to refuse them officially, some bank have requirements which are de facto prohibitive such as accepting Rp 100 coins in bulk of...

    Are Trolls Valuable?

    I have said it before but I LOVE most trolls. Some of them have made my day more than once and those who have followed us for the past 13 years probably know many of the one I am thinking of. As hinted by D. the better breed are the one who manage to write a fair bunch of posts without giving...

    Why dont Indos give back change?

    In my region, it's a lot of the former and less of the latter. Until pre-Covid I was used to purchase over a ton of fresh products every night on our local market and I have faced this situation zillion of times in the past ten years we have conducted business there. Condidering that it was...

    Recommended Indonesian Alcohol Brands

    Also, you have to be aware that it always pays to compare price/ml for these locally produced alcohol and it isn't rare that a 250ml costs less per ml than a 700ml of the same brand, same beverage. A quick example: Distributor price for a Konig Ludwig Weissbier in North Sulawesi: 330 ml @ Rp...
