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

    I've been all over, dork. Nice underhanded pass at me though. I tend to notice a lot of uppity lifers in the expat resident space get pissy when someone has a different opinion or experience or wants to vent from time to time. That's ok. They're usually married to a local and tend to...

    I'm glad you value a difference in opinion

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

    I wouldn't come here. I actually regret it despite some of the glowing reviews my friends gave it. Just had this lowlife steal my food and OVO on Grab, for example. There are some adjustments you have to make with regard to the people and their mindset. They seem to think all foreigners are...

    Twitter Wars: Bali vs. Kristen Gray

    They were wrong for sure but imo they were singled out and scapegoated. Plenty of foreigners earn untaxed money or work on tourist visas in Bali especially all these annoying Instagram influencers. Most of them dont get deported. Same goes for the hundreds of monetized YouTube channels and...

    What's up with renting here?

    Yeah the psbb thing halted most of the action.

    What's up with renting here?

    It's just my opinion man. No need to be upset about it. I'll give it some time and see what happens.

    What's up with renting here?

    Yeah I can't wait until the market crashes and all these fat cat landlords are eating dog food. This guy is still throwing a fit. I might just put up 3 months rent to shut him up or go to Bali. I think outside of the women and nightlife, I dont really like this country. The food is ok but the...

    What's up with renting here?

    That makes a lot of sense about the credit checks. 2 full years is quite excessive though. I managed to bypass all that with my current place and got it month to month with a 1 month deposit. That sounds great but the landlord INSISTS on taking the rent a few days early and gets mad and...

    What's up with renting here?

    Why does every landlord want a year's rent upfront? Or 6 months and a deposit. I dont even know anyone with that kind of cash lying around. And these arent usually cheap places either 7jt++ a month for a studio or 1 bedroom. Is it just the culture here or is it greed?

    How to extend B211A

    My Visa expires on the 9th and my useless agent is based in Bali so I would STILL have to go up there and pay his 1.8jt agent fee. Is it possible to go up there and do it in a couple days without a incurring an overstay fee? I'm also trying to open a bank account and he was crooning about all...

    Why dont Indos give back change?

    Not sure if they cant count or they're trying to rip me off. But it's usually at family mart or indomaret or my laundromat and so on. Always skimming and then shrugging shoulders when I mention it. If it were once or twice then maybe. But it happens quite a bit and I have to stand firm before...
