    Libraries accepting books in English?

    My move is producing a number of books I and wife have little use for. They're mostly historical romance with some horror, action/adventure and children/young adult books thrown in. There's also Richie Rich and similar western comics. Comics, children and YA books are in Indonesian, the rest in...

    Irrational behaviour in the Jakarta Expats forum on Facebook

    I don't know the people involved, but I know that rational behavior is a scarce commodity online. And the remaining jakartans would have to burn an awful lot of waste to make up for the reduced pollution from vehicular traffic (and cooking fumes).

    PerPres No 20 Tahun 2018 Penggunaan TKA

    I hope Jokowi hasn't jumped the shark with this decision. On the other hand, we know his adversaries are ready to exploit any misstep, or even to manufacture some where there is none, against him.

    I don't see requiring language proficiency as a step back. Removing the requirement for IMTA seems to be an improvement, but we'll have to wait for the actual implementation.

    Perpres No. 20 Thn. 2018 "Tentang Penggunaan Tenaga Kerja Asing": What will actually change? There has been a lot of talk about this executive order, especially from the usual anti-foreigner suspects. In my opinion these new rules aren't that much more lax, and their...

    Massive oil spill- tragic news for the environment

    I know for a fact thet Indonesia has IMO Tier 2 capabilities for handling oil spills, including cleaning up oiled mangrove forests. What seem to have happened is that Pertamina, cannot say why, took a long time before calling the professionals. And in case of oil spills timing is of essence.
