Where media all want to talk about the results for Indonesia - as if the country is as small as Luxembourg or Brunei, and even that is still too big - locals seem to go on with their lives as they did before. While the area around the two hotels, J.W. Marriott and Ritz Carlton was still partly closed off, the rest of Jakarta looked like a Saturday morning when it was Saturday morning.

Ruling Indonesia from behind the scenes; MUI moves again They did it again. After they managed to get some 500 percent duty in all imported liquor - a draconian measure that is currently killing people daily, but 'religion above everything' seems to be the motto of the MUI - they now managed to stop beef imports from New Zealand all together.
