From cappuccino to Coca Cola Jack Daniels in one nights' out (II) The later it gets, the more clear it becomes that Kedai Kopi Jakal - Jakal is a subtraction Jalan Kaliurang, the street where the coffee house is located - has become a real gathering place. After ten in the evening the first groups of people decide to go out already. They will most likely be headed for one of the several nightclubs that Jogja has to spend the rest of the evening. Empty seats are filled up again in quite a short time, but they brought their laptop this time, so most likely they will be around for some time to come. That should not be a problem as well because they serve you until three in the morning of the next day.

From cappuccino to Coca Cola Jack Daniels in one nights' out (I) It is still fairly early in the afternoon for a nice evening, but still life slowly comes out of the starting blocks. It isn't a nightclub, where the doors will be kept closed until around ten in the evening. It now happens in other locations in Jogja where preparations are made. All across the city students and young adults have created meeting points to start their Saturday evening together. One of those meeting points, to say it bluntly, is Kedai Kopi Jakal. This is the name that the place has earned already, because it is not the official name.

A handful of tickets, 6 Quite a lot back in time, about two-and-a-half to three years already, but when I found these bills again there were certain memories returning to my mind. It's time once more to write down some of them here on this virtual paper, so I can reduce my current heap of entrance- and parking tickets and other useless prove of payment. I always keep all of them, just in case. But there is never a just in case until I find them again, like today.

Confusion clouds yesterdays polls Indonesians were voting in parliamentary elections yesterday in a crowded contest expected to see the former political party of ousted strongman Suharto win the most votes, but not a majority. Nearly 600,000 polling stations opened in stages across the three time zones of the world's most populous Muslim country amid tight security. The ballot has been billed as the biggest one-day vote in history, and is only Indonesia's second democratic election since Suharto's fall in 1998.

The ads for next month's parliamentary election start with a housewife suggesting that viewers "don't think too much, just go for Suharto". Then farmers are seen saying that they crave a return of what is called the Suharto era of economic stability.
