    Downloading films Windows 10

    Which reminds me of this question....I've picked up a few movies from there, but I noticed the recent downloads (the past few months)...movies would play for a few minutes, then suddenly the audio cuts off...then whatever movies I play from that external drive also has no audio...usually it...

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

    Just curious Burungkecil or anybody who might be able to answer....(or maybe point me to the right direction) 1. Getting a swab test at your local Puskesmas. I heard this can be done free of charge? 2. IF the test turned out positive, getting the referral letter from Puskesmas is necessary to...

    Downloading films Windows 10

    1. Piratebay still around? I thought that place has been dead for quite a while? 2. Used to be able to access torrent sites for a while, but then we had issues with Internet speed...First Media technician suggested we changed modems...wife ok'ed...since then I have to use VPN...not sure...

    Mobil Rakyat...new cars

    Dealerships (service) are overpriced and no guarantee they'd do a good job...more than likely they'll recommend you replacing parts you don't need, etc. A few years ago I had a wheezing noise every time I stepped on the gas and I just couldn't find what it was. A short trip to Auto 2000 later...

    Mexican Cuisine Survey

    Poblano no more...last time I went it was already boarded up....pretty sad. I liked that place. Used to order the Carnitas burritos, until I was diagnosed with type 2 DM then switched to just Carnitas no tortilla 'burritos' instead. Super Loco...not surprised it's closed. One time (the ONLY...

    Mexican Cuisine Survey

    Used to frequent a (Mexican) place at Pacific Place that was decent in my opinion, kinda like Chipotle but without the frills (no refried beans, etc)..pretty sad when i went there recently and it's boarded up. Hacienda (at Arcadia) was pretty good and ambience was also decent, but expensive by...

    Covid-19

    I'm doing reasonably ok particularly since the malls reopened...I kinda don't mind the lack of people...less crowded...same with the roads...less traffic jam. Wife is anti-social so she absolutely loves the empty malls. But economical impact...not so nice.

    Shock: No working permit as spouse of Indo.Wife ?

    My only (attempt at) advice is don't buy a house...not even in your wife's name, particularly you've known her for such a short time....at least you're not doing too bad if you got enough money saved up to buy a house (I assume it's down payment?You're doing great if it's enough to buy it...

    my first post, gardening enthusiast from USA

    I was going to say this too...since durian seems to be a recurring topic...Malaysia seems to be a good place (Musang King supposed to be one of the best durians and it's from Malaysia?) and Malaysia also has the MM2H program...so I assume they're more welcoming towards foreigners (at least they...

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    So far it hasn't cost me any extra money, except a bit of annoyance and inconvenience of having to call OJK, submit a doc (my KITAP copy) through online form...also when I was advised to go through the online form, i wasn't told to move the date until they have available 'quota' for appointment...

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    Thanks for your reply Herb (indeed...it's helpful!). So let me update everybody on the KTP saga...maybe it's just me or again...the Indo government just very recently added this new additional requirement....my agent just went to the catatan sipil again and they insisted that a 'letter' from OJK...

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    Didnt know about the RT could help with that...it is something that i will definitely keep in mind for next time i need something with the catatan sipil. Thanks

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    Yes I agree about the ktp required for the extension. According to my agent...(he forwarded a whatsapp message) that my 'next step' is to apply for an ojk letter to present to the catatan sipil...so i can get my KTP done....I told him, hogwash and irrelevant..no...no such thing....and told him...

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    Long story short....since I didn't do the KTP OA (when I first did my KITAP myself and the immigration officer did not even blink when I gave him my KK with me as wni on it) I am running into issues now with the extension, that's why i thought of using an agent...lesson learned for sure.

    Search function not working?

    So basically I tried to search past posts about ex-wni (or eks WNI) technically it's more than 3 letters..but nothing came up. Maybe the search string/parameter (don't know the exact term) needed the words to be exact?

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    My agent told me the catatan sipil might ask when they want to remove my nik (since it was never removed when i got my kitap)..probably an attempt to get money from me..

    Search function not working?

    Tried to enter pretty general words like WNI into the search field and came up nothing...wonder if I did it wrong or the search function isn't working?

    KITAP Extension (1st one)

    This KITAP extension is quite a nightmare so far....my agent told me that the Kehakiman says the next step for me is to register with OJK via online...reason: To ensure that I don't have any debts in Indonesia under my name...is there such a thing?
