The breathtaking view and sound of a pyroclastic cloud Two days ago, also soon after our breakfast, we got on our motorcycle to make the trip towards Klaten. Since all roads directly north of Yogyakarta were sealed off, and Cangkringan was one of the worst-hit areas, I wanted to go east as far as possible before driving back to the Mount Merapi volcano again. There were relatively little problems in that area, which was also easy to reach.

The new Gajayana between Malang and Jakarta It has been a year ago that I used the Indonesian railroad services. That was a trip from Yogyakarta to Jakarta with a dirty, cold and old-fashioned train. Trains like that are still widely available on Java. It normally is really cold on board of one of these trains, which makes traveling with them not the best option available.

Asteroid crashes to earth near South Sulawesi Picture this: A 10-meter wide asteroid hits Earth and explodes in the atmosphere with the energy of a small atomic bomb.

This is what happened on Oct. 8th around 11 am local time in the coastal town of Bone, South Sulawesi.

Playing fire chief in Jodoh It is something that children do, as well as adults. For adults it is a full-time job or volunteer job and not something you just do incidentally. But that last one is what happened two nights ago. It was just after six in the evening when a Dutch friend and I were having a beer in one of the many cafe's in the Jodoh area on the island of Batam. One of the Australians that entered before we did walked outside but came right back in. "There is a fire," he said with a normal voice.

Sexy, a young woman with candy Simply strange to see. Make a sexy picture of yourself, or ask your friends to make one of you, just to put this picture on your Facebook or Myspace in the hope that people are willing to give a comment on it. Many people aim at comments that are all to predictable, but short replies like "Sexy!", "Hot!" and "I would like to have sex with you!" in various phrases are all to common, also in Indonesian of course.

Farah Quinn the sexy TV-chef People who watch television in Indonesia probably know her. She presents a TV-program on Saturdays in which she prepares good-looking meals. Whether they taste as good as they look, I don't know because I never tried it, but there is more than just the cooking in the program 'A la Chef' she presents on Trans TV that looks good. The now 29-year old Farah Quinn, married with a bule ('Caucasian'), is quite a famous tv-person for women and men alike so it seems.
