    How to follow a court case progress

    From what I know all court cases go to sentencing, somehow, sometime. The more money you have the faster it will go, but for drug cases even if you pay, you will spend time in jail for the best case. I read that there are at present a little less than 900 foreigners in Indonesian jails, the vast...

    We Selling Wine, Spirits, Beer, Soju, etc

    At 45,000 yes, note that the price offered here is 46,000... Balifrog mentioned 25/45K : I don't know where to buy a 620ml Bintang at 25K, sorry. For the rest I agree with you and in any case would never do any kind of transaction through whatsapp.

This kind of medication needs a prescription so you need to see a doctor first with both your medications, and see with him whether you may be prescribed the equivalent or the same if available. The doctor will also tell you to which pharmacy you can go, as...

    Bank recommendations
