    Bringing fresh eggs to Indonesia (Jakarta)

    If it is truly free to roam about the kampung, it probably does get into more freshly sprayed fields and whatnot. But if you've got it in a fenced area, you are just exposed to whatever travels on the wind. I'd argue the fans on a coup would suck a lot of that in anyway. Also, it might be a...

    Bringing fresh eggs to Indonesia (Jakarta)

    I reckon the free range taste better. They don't always look better, depending on the season and whether or not the farmer uses conventional chicken feed. I've had some milky-yellow yolked free range eggs that I would have thought were bad if someone hadn't told me otherwise. On the opposite...

    Building Material

    I've used batako before. The quality and dive really do vary. The ones I've purchased are a bit larger than your standard red brick ( and smarter than you think). I'm looking for breeze block because I'm thinking about trying to assemble a smoker from it and I need that huge size so I can avoid...

    Building Material

    Does anyone know if CMU/concrete/cinder/breeze/besser blocks are sold here? I feel like I've seen them for sale at places like Depok Bangunan or in use in shopping malls, but that may just be my expectations playing tricks on my memory. If so, what are they called?

    Bringing fresh eggs to Indonesia (Jakarta)

    There might be a whole market here, chickens, goats, cows, even a rare free-road-range buffalo.

    Prime Rib Enquiry

    Having just eaten dinner I suddenly find myself famished. I really, really, want to try a smoked egg. Yum!

    Prime Rib Enquiry

    I can just cut a branch straight off my mango tree (which does need a bit of shaping), remove the bark, and toss it on the charcoal? I'm looking at a cheap kettle grill for which I will improvise a heat shield so as to have indirect heat.

    Bringing fresh eggs to Indonesia (Jakarta)

    Wow. That is a really cool website. Nice! Also, I now regret my post above, which really has a negative feel without presenting any real evidence of cause for that negativity. If people want to go to the trouble of researching all their food, great. If not, they don't need me to imply that...

    The Uyghur and China discussion thread

    Nobody expects the Derfish Inquisition! He hasn't been on in years, man. The name was strange... But I missed it. I was so sure he was a sock for Dave as well... My apologies, Dave.

    Bule living in middle class neighbourhood experience

    Ya know, nosey, opinionated, neighbors is probably the only place where I have appreciated the hierarchical parts of the Indonesian social structure... kind of. While there is nothing you can do to stop people from randomly gossiping about you, you can easily stop them from gossiping at you...

    Prime Rib Enquiry

    I was kidding about inviting myself to your table, but I will happily impose upon you for some information about smoking. What local woods have you used that have a nice flavor? Any particular methods for those woods that I need to know (like soaking)? Is there any reason why I shouldn't...

    The Uyghur and China discussion thread

    I so accuse you. You seem more silly this time, in fact, as you are choosing to believe media created by and with the permission of the CCP while disregarding all other (external) sources.

    Bule living in middle class neighbourhood experience

    Your experience will be determined by your level of interactions with the neighborhood. If you are going to hang out and be chatty with people who like to hang out and be chatty, you can fully expect all the neighbors who enjoy a bit of gossip to know who you are within two months, if not...

    The Uyghur and China discussion thread

    What? This is just silly, man. It's not a game of football on the telly. There are concentration camps full of Uyghur. It doesn't matter who the people complaining are. It matters that China closes the camps and stops picking candidates for "persecution of the week".

    Bringing fresh eggs to Indonesia (Jakarta)

    I haven't looked into it very well, but I am very willing to believe you are right about all this. I'll still say that unless there is a meaningful certification and enforcement system set up in the market you are purchasing in, there is a good chance that your eggs won't live up to their...

    TRANSFER WISE HACKED

    Thanks for the heads-up. I fell for a gojek scam like this once... But I didn't have anything in my gojek account. It helps to occasionally be reminded that this sort of thing can happen. .
