The little ones are back again! I had to do without them for quite some time as they were very rare in Yogyakarta. The last time I remember receiving one of them must have been more than two years ago by now. Not because they are not needed, it's just because making them is costly enough. Distribution is another problem, because of the sheer weight when you need to distribute a lot of them throughout the country.

Need for fuel does not decline with higher prices For most Indonesians it came as unexpected as ever. With a shortage of foreign news, strictly regulated by the Indonesian government, it was not in the line of expectations of the average man in the street that fuel prices might just be hiked with one third all of a sudden. However almost the entire population of this planet knows what the current market price of a barrel of crude oil is - somewhere about 130 US dollar - Indonesia assumed that everything was fine. Use of fuel would decrease, prices would come down and nationwide production was to rise as well.
