Old and dirty money; how to get rid of it You will all probably have experience with it. You have just paid in the local supermarket and your change is a pile of banknotes that are just a few euro cents in value. If you are lucky enough, they will add a handful of aluminum coins with even less value than those uang kertas ('paper money') as well.

A peek into Jakarta's nightlife, CJ's Anther club is located at just a stones throw distance from the hotel discusses earlier, Shangri-La, and offers the same line of entertainment. The atmosphere however is slightly different than that of B.A.T.S., something that is caused by a different type of visitors that visits this place. In B.A.T.S. it is mainly Western expats, here the area is full of Koreans, Japanese, Indians and Africans from 'south of the Sahara', which is the politically correct name now I suppose.

Drinking coffee in the kampung, part 1 However it wasn't Saturday for sure, but a Tuesday, still I had the feeling that I had to take my motorbike for a nice day of traveling. Where it would bring me? At least as far as Purworejo. To my amazement and some shame I had never been there before, so that became the primary target. I at least had to go there so I could honestly say that I had been there. Furthermore there were no plans, like usual. It was already late in the morning, so it was not really supposed to become a long trip. Maybe after Purworejo it was time to find my way back. That also depended on what I would find along the way of course. Seen the distance and the road conditions it was to take about one and a half hour to get there. My modest estimation.

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.

The first plane It was less than one week before it really happened. I was in Kuala Lumpur to settle some official stuff, and when drinking an iced tea I took some time off in the evening to visit a friend. It was getting late and however we usually only 'speak' to each other on the internet, we had some serious issues as well. Sometimes it's best to make a small joke about accidents and disasters. The people on board of the missing Adam Air plane are having a splendid time diving there, things like that, whether they are fun or not. As long as it doesn't happen in your own direct environment, you can still say things like that. I also told that I always missed such events; earthquakes when I'm away; other disasters beyond my easy reach and other things like that.

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.

Indonesia's monorail struggles to get on track Gridlocked cars. Noxious traffic fumes. Indonesia's capital is crying out for a new transport network, but stop-start plans for a monorail illustrate the country's chequered efforts to build badly needed infrastructure. The idea of a gleaming monorail gliding above the congested tropical city of nearly 9 million people is an enticing one and proponents point to neighbouring Bangkok's Skytrain or Kuala Lumpur's monorail in at least easing equally grim transport woes.

Indonesia sentences four Australians to death An Indonesian appeals court has sentenced four Australian members of a drug smuggling ring to death, prompting a protest from the Australian government, officials said Wednesday. But the court spared the lives of two other Australians, sentencing them to life in prison. The fate of the men - part of a trafficking ring dubbed the "Bali Nine" by the media - has been followed closely in Australia, which does not have a death penalty. If carried out, the death sentences could strain ties between the two countries.

The conmen of Parangtritis What should have been a nice day driving around, became a very funny little adventure. Especially about some remarks that would be made in Parangtritis. Thinking back to this in fact ridiculous fact where four people can laugh about for a long time, it's time to do some efforts to go back writing a little bit. We go back just two days. Not too early the four of us get in the rental car (license plate starting with AB, so we are just like real Yogyakartans), to drive around for the afternoon; some beach, a little bit of disaster area south of Yogyakarta and then simply back home to eat.

Prosecutor: Bali bombings were to avenge Muslim deaths Four suspected Islamic militants went on trial today for their alleged roles in last year’s suicide bombings on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, attacks a prosecutor said were aimed at avenging Muslims’ deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Security was tight at the Denpasar trials, the first to be held over the triple bombings that killed 20 people and were blamed on Jemaah Islamiyah, an al-Qaida-linked south-east Asian terror group.

Idul Fitri 'losing its color' in Jakarta The fasting month of Ramadhan and Idul Fitri celebrations in Jakarta have lost much of their colorful cultural traditions, a senior citizen says. Republika daily newspaper writer Alwi Shahab remembers that Idul Fitri Eve in the 1940s and 1950s was a special time for Betawi (native Jakarta) women. Unlike on ordinary days, they were allowed to spend the evening outside their houses, tasked with buying flowers for the Lebaran decorations, Alwi said.
