An old-fashioned Saturday night in Jogja It was an old-fashioned Saturday evening in Jogjakarta. A part of my life that I left behind for a new life a few hundred kilometers away. I didn't miss a thing about it in the last two months, but when I am 'submerged' in it once again, it is fairly easy to pick up the old rhythm again. That is exactly what I did, together with my girlfriend and a number of friends in town.

Ramadan on Batam: 'You wanna fuck nice girl?' I probably have to stress once again that it was broad daylight when I walked around in the nightlife district of Batam - which is better known as 'Kampung Bule' indeed. However I have to be honest that I don't know what is usually going on at night here, I could imagine certain aspects of nightlife here from stories and Googling for certain keywords of course. Not directly what I am looking for, and maybe because of that reason I just explored the area during broad daylight to see what is going on here. From the Nagoya Hill shopping mall I walked to a local warnet (internet cafe) to check some things out and to make my walk around the district.

Indonesian filmmakers want censor board banned Top film makers in Indonesia have launched a legal bid to have the country's censorship board disbanded. They say it stifles creativity. A group of five young directors lodged a petition with the Constitutional Court earlier this week, requesting the removal of provisions in the film law regulating the establishment of the censorship body. "The existence of the Indonesian Censorship Board is against our constitutional right to communicate and receive information," told Tino Saroengallo, an award-winning documentary film-maker.

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.

Indecency, Indonesian-style I do not have any official role within the Indonesian judicial system. But I do feel like I can provide an important advisory service in the trial of Erwin Arnada, editor of the new Indonesian edition of Playboy, who faces up to 32 months in prison for putting out a magazine with indecent pictures. I may not know much about the law or Islam, but I do know an awful lot about indecency.

Playboy tests tolerance in Indonesia When Erwin Arnada, editor in chief of Playboy magazine in Indonesia, answered a summons at the police headquarters in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, he turned up smiling, behaved like a good citizen and, in turn, was treated politely during nearly six hours of questioning. The parrying, he recalled, went something like this:

Should Miss Indonesia compete in swimsuit? Miss Indonesia has glossy black hair and a law degree, smiles constantly and talks about helping children. In many ways, she is the ideal Miss Universe contestant. But Artika Sari Devi faces one major obstacle in competing in the Miss Universe pageant May 30 - wearing a swimsuit. To Islamic clerics and many others, an Indonesian Muslim woman showing bare skin would be a public slap against Islam and a national embarrassment.

Indonesia debates kissing ban Indonesia’s government is considering a law banning unmarried couples from kissing in public – and harshly penalising those who do, The Jakarta Post reported today. The campaign against kissing is part of a proposal of sweeping reforms to laws adopted by the country’s Dutch colonial rulers in the late 19th century. Drafted by a panel of experts, the revised laws would set environmental protection standards and punish human rights violations and terrorism, the newspaper said.

Reporting Aceh emotional for Najwa Visions of battered Aceh and North Sumatra provinces struck television reporter Najwa Shihab last month with something she thought she had already knew: What journalism is all about. With her distinctive radiance Najwa may appear to be just like any other TV reporter-cum-anchor, with more unkind critics even suggesting that she is a bit overrated.

There are no actual proof in the existence of ghosts. When approaching claims made by people who have seen ghosts, we should approach those claims with skepticism. Before we accept those claims to be true, we should consider every single aspect of those claims from every different angle until there's no room for doubts, which in this case, is unlikely.

Bali says no to stripteases A tourism official in Bali has criticized certain nightclubs on the resort island that entertain visitors with striptease performances. "If a striptease that doesn’t correspond with the local people’s culture is freely performed in the country’s famous tourist resort, it will harm Balinese tourism culture, which predominantly reflects Hinduism," head of the provincial tourism department Gde Pitana was quoted as saying by state news agency Antara on Saturday (14/9/02).

The prosperous, tree-lined streets of Bandung hearken back to an era earlier this century when the city was known as the Paris of Java. Dutch colonial administrators at that time enlisted European architects and town planners to transform Bandung into an elegant holiday destination dotted with Art Deco buildings and other designs of the day. This heritage, along with cool mountain air, makes the city of 1.8 million people the envy of other large Indonesian centers. Hotels are packed with crowds fleeing Jakarta during weekends. "A lot of government big-shots like to come here and whoop it up," says Rus Edi, a taxi driver.
