Mysterious ‘yawning fish’ discovered in Maluku Until January 2008, no one knew it existed, or if they did, they weren’t talking.

They shared the photos with Ted Pietsch, a marine scientist at the University of Washington in Seattle, who said last year that the critter appeared to represent an unknown family (in the biological-classification sense) of angler fish.

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.

Bakso Belanda Back home for a week, leaving me with lots of work at the office, at home and in Indonesia. Maybe it's just good that I'm working hard right from the day I'm home, because I'm quite sure I would be missing Indonesia like hell when I was bored to death here. It was just 6 days ago, on an early Sunday morning at six, that the Singapore Airlines plane touched down on Schiphol Airport, ending my longest trip to Indonesia.

Tsunami death toll in Indonesia approaching 100,000 Catastrophic is the only word that comes close to describing the impact of Sunday’s earthquake and tsunami on the impoverished Indonesian regions in northern Sumatra. As of yesterday, the official death toll had risen to more than 50,000. But government officials are warning that the figure will rise to at least 100,000 as relief teams reach more remote areas, particularly on the west coast.

On a usual early morning, around seven, I woke up from my last night in Bira, a small coastal town on the lifted coral sediments of the south-western tip of Sulawesi. It was time to get dressed, have some breakfast, which isn’t much choice here, but well, it’s Bira, a place with only a handful of people living here, compared to other places in Indonesia. Getting dressed and packing my backpack again I was thinking I would not be here for quite some time. I hadn’t planned a second trip to Sulawesi yet, so this is probably the last I would see of Bira in quite some time.

Just when investors might have been thinking it was safe to look at Indonesia a little less skeptically, the biggest banking scandal to hit the country since the central bank liquidity scandal, this one involving Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) and allegedly fraudulent letters of credit, has shattered confidence yet again. With BNI marked for semi-privatization next year, the scandal could hardly have come at a worse time. It highlights concerns raised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over corporate governance in Indonesia and the central Bank Indonesia's failure to detect the scam until a year after it allegedly began.

Not long after I had settelled in South Jakarta, the people who live in the house came home, so I had the chance to meet them again. Bapak was home late, but he liked to see me again, same like the sister of my friend here. She’s about to graduate in a few months, and besides wishing her the best, I also got to talk to her for a few hours, on the late evening of that Wednesday. A talk that I in fact never had with her before, so it was a true delight that evening. I went to bed about midnight, remembering that she wanted to go to campus the next day, and I could go with her to the train station, since I was leaving for Bandung tomorrow.

In the early hours of 2003, the very early hours, I decided it was about time to expand my world of Indonesia on the world wide web. Since about 4 years I have maintained a Dutch links-website under Startpagina ( indonesie.pagina.nl, Startpagina.nl ). I’m doing fine with that one, collecting more and more visitors over the year. Most are still Dutch, and that’s the big reason why I made the second step in uniting the Indonesian-loving community in the Netherlands. I started a forum, which was offered by Startpagina for quite some time, but I didn’t want to start because I was busy working on my websites.

Aceh offensive breeds chaos, fear The Indonesian military says it is trying to help Aceh's 4 million people by imposing martial law and launching a land, sea and air offensive to crush separatist rebels of the Free Aceh Movement (GAM). But less than two weeks after the launch of the operation, it has brought only heartbreak and fear for many Acehnese. "We are anxious and on edge," a transportation worker said. "We are at a loss what to do."
