The mess at PLN Cikarang #3 Last contact with PLN dated back to July this year. Indeed I was not called back or did I receive information in any other way from them. So until that very moment I did not have a clue about what was going on and how I was able to pay for my monthly electrical bill.

 The mess at PLN Cikarang #2 Early July, I headed for the local office of PLN in Lippo Cikarang, located almost besides the local post office, so that was not too difficult to find. I expected it to be a short visit, but that would turn out to be a completely different. My address was not found in the system of the cashier as well and I was not able to pay my bill here as well for the time being.

No shortage of stupid cops Not the first time and most likely also not the last time that I was 'aught in a 'trap' when on the road. This means that all motorcyclists are stopped by police to check their paperwork. Drivers of motorcycles should always bring a valid STNK ('license plate registration') and SIM C ('driving license for motorcycles') with them.

Only two pilots in simulator, training a success The first reaction from Indonesia on the ban to fly to countries of the European Union for all Indonesian airliners was as clear as it could be. Furious they were, because there were no structural problems at all in the airline industry in the country. President Yudhoyono even canceled a visit to the Netherlands because of the ban. And all this even when there was not a single Indonesian airliner flying to Europe, since Garuda Indonesia had stopped flying to Amsterdam late 2004 already.

Price of hajj from Indonesia to raise 20 percent The department of Religious Affairs in Indonesia has formally set the price of the hajj pilgrimage for this year. The price will be some 450 US dollar higher than last year, which translates into a hike of 5 million Rupiah, or 20 percent. The hike in prices is mostly caused by the higher cost of flying because of high world oil prices. The Minister of Religious Affairs, Maftuh Basyuni, said that the price of the pilgrimage is decided upon by presidential decree.

A visit to the Indonesian embassy It has been a short while, but still I think about that one day that I was headed for the Indonesian embassy in Kuala Lumpur. Because I had obtained a nice booklet of maps of the city, and I also bought a monthly card for the LRT (city trains), I would be able to drop in there to bring my paperwork. The embassy opened at nine o'clock in the morning, like usual, so if I would get up at around eight o'clock I would have enough time to prepare myself. That is what happened. Half past eight the alarm of my telephone went off and I took a short shower. The train station of Chinatown - that's the place where I found a nice little hotel for the week - was located at about 300 meters from the hotel. I waned to the central station of Kuala Lumpur (KL Sentral) because you can take the monorail from there. This route brought me in the direction of the Indonesian embassy, however I still had to walk quite some distance. With a bottle of water that should be possible however. I also got the chance to use the monorail trains, because waiting until the one in Jakarta is finished would mean I was able to go to Kuala Lumpur a few more times, because that one won't be ready for some time being, if I read the stories about that.

Airports are fun, not only in Indonesia, but everywhere on the world. After flying to Indonesia several times I have seen the airports of Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Zurich, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Jogjakarta, Denpasar, Surabaya and Makassar. Not an impressive number, but it’s still growing longer. However the remote destinations always seem more attractive for me, a local flight in Indonesia, from Makassar to Jogja, with a short stop at Surabaya made me smile while thinking of it just recently. It’s just one of those experiences I should not forget about.

Bleak future for repatriated Indonesians There won't be jobs in Indonesia for most migrant workers returning from Malaysia, but officials in Jakarta said they can offer them training to develop their skills, or help them start small businesses. Mr Adang Farid, who oversees domestic-employment matters at the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration, also disclosed that President Megawati Sukarnoputri would raise Malaysia's repatriation of illegal Indonesian workers next week when she meets Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad for talks.

History is all about today. It helps us understand where we are and where we are heading. Indonesians are confused about the future because so much of their past has been covered up.
