The TransJakarta busway as a good example Earlier I wrote about the TransJakarta busway as a bad example of how things should be taken care of if implementing public transport. But this system does not only have negative sides of course, so TransJakarta also deserves a more positive piece of writing if you ask me.

This was in the picture! #22 To this very day, every morning there are floating markets in Banjarmasin in which farmers and traders brought their goods to trade on boats. It has always been a farmers’ market and it’s interesting to see the genuine river-based way of life. The rivers are also the main venues for boat races and other festivities. The main attractions are the waterlogged suburbs traversed by canals; much of the city's commerce takes place on water. Get there early to enjoy most of it.

This was in the picture! #20 Magic mushrooms are sold on the small islands northwest of Lombok, better known as the Gili's, and you will find them everywhere nowadays. Officially seen as drugs, they can be purchased and sold freely here in one way or another. But these products of nature should be treated as such; don't bring them off the island and don't bring them across borders.

The last minutes of the dry season It is October 8, 2008 in the morning when I prepare myself for a trip to the neighboring city of Solo. I do this because there are still some stamps missing in my albums. I do not collect points here, converted to money they are worth almost nothing and that 50 Rupiah discount on a bottle of iced tea of 3.500 Rupiah is something I am not waiting for as well. Those stamps however, I would like to have, so it occasionally occurs that I have to do some more effort for them than just the short trip to the local main post office downtown, at the other side of 'Malioboro'.

Adam Air to continue expansion Adam Skyconnection Airlines said the Jan. 1 crash of one of its aircraft will not affect expansion plans as the Indonesian budget carrier will pursue adding 60 planes within five years and searching for a strategic investor. The airline also plans to lease 10 Boeing 737 planes this year, bringing its total fleet to 32, according to the company's president director, Adam Suherman, whose family owns the Jakarta- based carrier.

Pilots concerned over Indonesia airlines Four years ago, young pilots lined up to join a new contender in Indonesia's booming aviation industry. But at least 20 left Adam Air within months, citing concerns that poor maintenance, corruption and rule-bending could lead to a crash - charges the airline denied. "I didn't want to wait until I had lost my friends," said Feisal Banser, 30, a former Adam Air flight captain who knew several crew members on a passenger jet that crashed Jan. 1 with 102 people on board.

Indonesia crash brings safety of budget airlines into question The proliferation of budget airlines across Asia has made air travel affordable for millions, but this week's aircraft disaster in Indonesia has underlined the challenge for governments to ensure safety standards are met. Analysts say there is no hard evidence that budget airlines are more accident-prone than full-service carriers, but admit they have a harder job convincing the public they are not cutting corners as well as costs.

A handful of tickets, 5 Looking back in a bunch of old airline tickets, entrance ticket and whatever more, I again found some 'remarkable' items. A part of a boarding pass for a flight with Garuda Indonesia, which haven't been flying to the Netherlands for quite some time now. Also an entrance ticket to the Prambanan temple complex as well as a lunch in the Via Via Cafe in the well-known Jalan Prawirotaman in Yogyakarta. Several months after the earthquake I happened to be there accidentally because I was looking for something completely different. Still a reminder to get on my motorbike and see what became of the place. Especially going there for that one thing didn't have to, because I would go there anyway for renting a car for some friends coming over from Bali.

The time has come that I have to look for my own stuff here in Eindhoven. I have been living here for quite some years now, and I know my way around here pretty good (maybe with the help of an internet guide). But only a little while ago I discovered there are more people here who were looking for the same products, Indonesian products that is. After my first holiday to Indonesia, back in 1999, I had the need to shop for ‘the real Indonesian krupuk’ (shrimp-crackers) and I found that in a shop named Toko Murah in the one shopping mall Eindhoven has. I only went there for some krupuk and kue lapis, that was also enough for me.

Just when investors might have been thinking it was safe to look at Indonesia a little less skeptically, the biggest banking scandal to hit the country since the central bank liquidity scandal, this one involving Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) and allegedly fraudulent letters of credit, has shattered confidence yet again. With BNI marked for semi-privatization next year, the scandal could hardly have come at a worse time. It highlights concerns raised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over corporate governance in Indonesia and the central Bank Indonesia's failure to detect the scam until a year after it allegedly began.

Just as they have in the developed world, big-box hypermarkets, which are taking over the top end of the retail trade, are causing severe dislocations in the rest of Indonesia's food chain, from smaller supermarkets down to wet markets to the warungs where housewives sell cigarettes and candy out of their living room windows.

After four years of Indonesia holidays, I have learned several things. A little bit of language ( I’m far from happy with the current results indeed ), a little culture, food, climate and environment. But the thing I would like to tell you about this time is public transport in a variety of different ‘products’ as I call it. In fact it should not be that different from your own means of transport, but remember that you have to give up your bike and car for your transport. A car was not my problem yet, I used to do everything by bike, because the city life in a small city like Eindhoven ( pop. 200,000 ) in the Netherlands is about the same mess as the daily Jakarta life. No harm done, by bike you can enjoy special routes and roads for bikers only. Imagine that..
