A few hours in Jalan Jaksa I have been there before and I have written about it before. It is still a nice and not unimportant easy-to-reach destination for a quick lunch and a Large Bintang before you start the second half of the day. Just relaxing for a couple of hours, coming to terms after the first part of the day.

Biking on Saturday afternoon It was a Saturday afternoon as any other, but sometimes I just feel the need to get out for a while. This is not always possible, but when there is a possibility and there are no other appointments in the agenda, then it just might happen that after lunch I decide to grab my stuff for a trip on the motorbike. It's not too far away, within the borders of the province of Yogyakarta, but at least I can get away from the daily life for a while. Helmet, keys and a wallet is enough. To store some of the memories I have I also bring a camera with me and within a matter of minutes I leave the area. Where do I go then? Ooh, I felt like having a drink in Wonosari, so that became my first destination, knowing that most likely it would be something in that direction, but that doesn't really matter.

Indonesia becomes frontline in World Bank battle against corruption Paul Wolfowitz, a key architect of America's invasion of Iraq and its ambitions to reshape the world, was President George Bush's controversial choice to take the reins of the World Bank last year. Mr Wolfowitz, despised by many for his policies but admired for his intellect, ignored the furore over his appointment, waiting 12 months to make his first major policy pronouncement. Its location, Indonesia, and his warning of rampant corruption undermining global aid and development efforts, was almost as ambitious and controversial as his attempts to re-engineer the Middle East.

Traditional houses outlast new in Sumatra quake You could call it the tale of two houses: one, a seemingly rickety stilt structure built 80 years ago using no nails stands defiantly upright, while next door, a six-year-old brick-and-cement home lies in a pile of rubble -- sent crashing to the ground by Monday's massive earthquake. "Everyone knows bricks are not so strong," Agus, who owns what is left of the brick house, said while taking a break from salvaging what he could from the collapsed structure.

Bumps on Indonesia's Tobacco Road Every afternoon at 4:30, the thousands of women who roll clove cigarettes for Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna file out of the company's three factories here, the pungent aroma of cloves clinging to their uniforms as fast as the company logo.

RCTI slammed as 70 million miss matches Holding the sole rights in Indonesia to broadcast the World Cup on television could turn out to be a poisoned chalice for RCTI as the House of Representatives condemned the country's oldest private television channel for ignoring the fate of 70 million potential viewers who were missing out on the month-long spectacular. Considering the number of viewers that RCTI was unable to reach, the House urged the nation's largest private TV station to share the rights with state broadcaster TVRI, which could reach 80 percent of the country's viewers.

The presidential palace complex has been witness to momentous changes in the country's history, and the changing of the guard of the highest powers in the land. But while the powers that be may come and go, it seems that some "residents" stay put no matter what. This is the 78th article in our series on Old Batavia. If Dutchman J.A. van Braam, the first owner of what is today the present presidential palace complex, were still alive, he could see that his former home is now an abode for supernatural creatures.

Reform is a process of dismantling and putting things back together. As such, the more unbending and unyielding an institution, the greater the pain it will feel when undergoing a process of reform. The Indonesian Military (TNI), like any other military organization in other parts of the world, is an organization that is intrinsically conservative. Consequently, the price of reforming it has become relatively more taxing compared with the reform of other institutions.
