  • OK, I was wrong. I actually did go to an Indonesian/Malaysian restaurant once. But they 'closed' the 'Indonesian/Malaysian' section. It ended up just being a American Chinese thing... It was OK...

    I really wanted to try the Malaysian stuff too... I wanted a Nasi Lemak... :catcry

    I never buy those stuff, it is too expensive for me, but afaik the selections isnt much, only mix max vodca and green sands, and local heineken which overhere is called bir bintang (means star, from its logo)

    For same size, usually it is about 4 times of the price of Softdrink (Coca-Cola, sprite etc).

    I.e. a bottle of sprite is like 50 cent USD, a bottle of alcohol is at least $2

    I see. I guess things truly are different all over the world. It was kinda interesting learning about fruit there. : o

    Yes, expensive restaurants are a ripoff everywhere. :ippy
    Was your university in Yogykarta?

    I spend whole my life until high school in Yogyakarta, my parents are still there, my Uni is in her sister city Solo/Surakarta, then I work in Jakarta

    The duck rice would probably be my favorite dish from there. :yay But I would probably enjoy the spicy catfish too.

    I heard Rendang is avaliable in west

    Try it. It will be spicy like Indian food, but not that "hot" as in Chilly just "warm" because of the spices (pepper)

    Man... I've grown to dislike Ramsey over the years because he overdoes the drama and minimizes the food in his US shows... But I can admit he is definitely a great chef.

    I'll keep it in mind but I haven't seen many Indonesian restaurants here. Maybe I'll have better luck next time I'm back in Asia...
    I see... I will have to take your word for it.

    How about Bali? Worth visiting?
    wibisana

    Sure. safe choice.Tho i would recomend Yogyakarta.grew up there. Yogyakarta is like Osaka/London place with rich/ancient culture.you can visit places from Sultan Palace, Candi /stone temple same to Angkor Wat, decent Natural tourism such as Mountain hiking in Mt Merapi/Kaliurang valley tourism spot and few beaches.
    BackPacking is great. inn /night start @ $10 food also affordble

    You are welcome
    It looks good. I like eggplant. I like spicy food. It seems a good combo.

    Is Indonesia nice? : o
    wibisana
    wibisana
    its nice... so far... tho there is danger looming ahead... muslim getting radicalised/less tolerant... they also somehow tend to be anti govt/riot etc

    I see...

    What about changing the capital? Do you think that is totally neccessary?
    wibisana
    wibisana
    Kind of... But its kind a wasteful... Its no secret that Jakarta is sinking and getting worse due to climate change... Also the traffic is so bad. Moving capital would solve some problem, lessen the burden. But i say wasteful because Jokowi/govt already spent billions to upgrade infrastructure in Jakarta, Skyrail, subway etc...
    Hurry up because I'm hungry.

    I'm about to order some Indonesian food, what should I get?

    well we have to make sure we have same variable in here, if yo count Indonesia, farmland, meat producing stuff, UK have to be counted aswell, your figure on UK is simiar, wiki said 380, yours said 360, while indonesia in wiki only 520, while your source claim 2,6 Bn. there is something wrong in here, where this 2+ Bn come from?

    and to answer Greta should preach Indonesia, she dont have to, i can assure you a lot of young Indonesian is already inspired by her, you can take my word, or try google.co.id search "greta", i also heard in radio too back in last year. young people here care about nature, we just ban plastic for chain-store. we are taking baby steps to get there.
    Thank you for the +rep! Have you seen any of the Ghostbusters movies, or are you simply not fond of them?
    wibisana
    wibisana
    I've seen the 1st
    I cant remember if i have seen the 2nd

    The 1st was good. But since it was long time ago i watch it. I cant remember much detail

    I think that both movies are excellent, and I watch them on occasion.
    Thank you for the +rep; this relationship means everything to me, and I will do whatever I must do in order to maintain it.

    just do whatever you thing is right

    also a bit tips, women/people usually will be resistant if you push them too hard, they will "flee". like fishing you cant just pull the reel as hard as you can, the fish will get away or the line will snap.

    I know that, and, for that reason, I have been moving slowly; Lady J did say that she was amenable to the idea of sexual activity, but not yet, so I wish to discuss that subject with her.
    I know. I specified that in the intro post but think that, seeing it was not posted here, that it was such an insane story it needed actual focus, and the situation is probably ongoing.
    Are you okay? Hopefully you are far away from the earthquake/tsunamis going on.

    Take care of yourself, and your family.

    Majapahit was once ruled whole Indonesia +Malaysia + some modern Sea. Also it was founded by reppeling Yuan dynasty.

    Those are the biggest one. Some lesser like

    They built Borobudur (we claim it is biggest Buddhist structure, tho mostlikely Ankor Watt is way bigger)
