    There was a mall in Glodok that was full of individual building material suppliers. I can't remember the name, but it was on Hayam Wuruk. Huge supply from electrical, plumbing, windows, doors and raw material to order.

    Migrating to Bali, personal goods taxable entry?

    I brought in several expensive paintings from Los Angeles to Jakarta a few years ago, all framed and packaged in boxes, one was well over 120 cm in length and had no issues going through the nothing to declare line. I had a story ready that they were family portraits I was bringing home, but no...

    !!!JNE is struggling with COVID19!!! / #janganpakejne

    I haven't seen much of a slow down with Amazon, I actually ordered a bunch of Indonesian seasoning packets last week and they arrived to Hawaii in 3 days. We order something at least once a week from Amazon and I think the longest we have had to wait is 8 days, but most around 4 or 5 days.

    Quickest Way to visit the US

    My wife was approved for a US visa about 1 year after we got married without any excess paperwork (although this was in 2009). Had your wife been turned down for a visa before marriage? If she had been rejected before it is often much harder to get approved in the future. Do you have a child...

    DON'T PANIC.... well, maybe a little bit.

    Is that the Senayan one? I haven't been for over a year but used to frequent it more often a few years ago and everyone in the kitchen, the waiter's helpers who bring the food out to the table always had mask on and often times a few of the waitresses. Perhaps they have changed their policy or...

    They normally wear mask at Din Tai Fung, it isn't because of the coronavirus, they have been doing it for as long as I can remember in the Jakarta locations.

As for the affidavit we have traveled in and out of Indonesia over 30 times in the past 10 years with my son using his US passport and his Indonesian affidavit (with his...

    You may have better luck with Indons over Chindos ...... I think what snpark was referring to when he asked if "you were real" was your usage of " Chindo" I have friends that I would use Chindo with and they wouldn't take offense but I wouldn't use it with people I didn't know and I'd only use...

    Any Harm or Real Danger?

    I have only lived in Bali and Jakarta so can't comment on the rest of the regions, but I have seen and heard of similar things in both places including but not limited to bribes or payments to the police, mafia groups, religious groups, the tax office etc.... It varies of course, if you have a...

    Religious education for dual nationality kids

    I was told by the head of one of the schools a couple of years ago (they were starting to enforce it then) that if you chose Confucianism they would most likely not be able to find a teacher and the student would just have to be taught at home. We ended up moving so didn't enroll there but that...
