    You’ll need the money for the liver transplant, but if you imbibe local oplosan drink you may not live long enough to use it.

    Sheet, I wouldn’t move to Indo for that amount, and I used to live there. Living cost in Jakarta is roughly half of my city’s, yet at my career level in Indo I’d be earning 15-25% of my American salary. That’s a big drop in quality of life.

    How do you guys invest?

    I wish I still have TSLA. Live and learn. Made a little money with NIO, now looking for another entry point.

    Yeah, for every mid level manager earning $1500 a month, there are easily 10 people below him earning considerably less, and we’re only talking about the formal economy.

    You get $1500 a month (Rp 21 million) if you’re an experienced manager or assistant GM in a five star hotel in Indonesia.

    That is true. Indonesians in general are more accepting of vices made by moneyed foreigners. Local LGBTQ folks in Indonesia are tolerated only in their particular niche: entertainment and the arts.

    To make it worse, many Americans have a warped understanding of free speech. The constitution only protects from abridgment of free speech by the government. Fellow citizens can still take action against you for your publicized opinion. As for birthright citizenship, it is a feature of the “new...

    I can imagine. If there is a locality in Indonesia that’s LGBTQ-friendly, tell only your LGBTQ friends then shut. the. f. up. She was literally selling them out, all for her $30 ebook.

    Right, but I think there are more of them than Russian oligarchs.

    I think a small percentage of digital nomads are freelance programmers and stock daytraders. These folks make decent money and can afford to live leisurely in most developing countries.

    She still maintains that she doesn’t do anything wrong because she doesn’t earn any amount in Rupiah. I guess it’s tough to keep her mouth shut since she earns her living selling ebooks.

    Encouraging people to ignore Covid restrictions alone is a serious matter. Remember that Rizieq Shihab was arrested for it. She’s lucky that she’s only getting deported.

    Thanks. This is what I got for relying on Turbotax and just plugging the numbers in year after year.

    I’m no expert on Indonesian tax, but it seems that any stay beyond 183 days subjects you to PPh 21. Out of curiosity I did a calculation based on a person earning USD 15,000 a year, which should cover a modest living cost in Bali. USA would tax the first $9,875 at 10% and the rest at 12%, for a...

    Unless she can prove to the IRS that she’s an Indonesian resident, she still owes US income tax. Just staying for more than a year abroad doesn’t automatically qualify her for the status. It looks like a double whammy to me. Indonesian authorities would like to know how she stays and works...

    Just curious, has she been in Indonesia for more than 183 days? If she hasn’t stayed for 6 months, then she’s not an Indonesian tax resident, which means she must still pay income tax to Uncle Sam.

    The government has just thrown the book at FPI.

    Banning a group and declaring it a forbidden organization in Indonesia is akin to declaring it a “terrorist organization” in USA. A legal organization can easily get a permit for demos and such, and the Police would actually feel pressure to approve a request from a large national organization...

    The government has just thrown the book at FPI.

    My concern is the Indonesian government getting back into the habit of prohibiting organizations. I’m not shedding any tear over the fate of FPI and HTI, but when the government can legally ban them, it can ban any organization. Next time around Prabowo’s government can ban any opposing group.

    Must be a slow news day. Next headline: The Pope is Catholic.

    Laws against entering someones house?

    Yes, simply being there without consent from an authorized person, combined with refusal to leave, is against the law. Furthermore, section 3 of the article says: “Jika mengeluarkan ancaman atau menggunakan sarana yang dapat menakutkan orang, diancam dengan pidana penjara paling lama satu tahun...
