Ramadan on Batam: Really closed down? The afternoon after that, the second day of Ramadan, I made a walk through the town of Nagoya, which is the most important place on the island outside the industrial estates and shipyards which are spread on other parts of the island. Nagoya Hill is the biggest shopping center of the island. Entirely according to Indonesian standards this shopping center - also called 'superblok' - features a big Hypermart supermarket, a Matahari department store, half a floor of mobile communication and one floor of food court of mixed quality. It is directly noticeable that it is an entirely different world than outside. Restaurants outside behave themselves as chameleons by acting they are closed, while they are still open.

Chickens rule the world Earlier this month it finally came through - Jakarta was to forbid all chickens in, on, around, below and besides houses, huts and other structures - but since then not much happened elsewhere to reach the same effect. Of course that will not be easy. Not outside Jakarta but also not within the city limits of a city of 15 million souls. Whether the city is flooded or not, chickens will always be there. Just recently a small group of people started to understand that chickens and humans can be a dangerous combination. This are probably people which already lost someone dear to this disease with incredibly high mortality rates. For all the others they can't care less, they have to make some living from it. Without chickens no food and that is what the local government realizes.

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.

The gray ooze that ate the villages Nothing, it seems, can stop the mud. For more than three months, the hot, noxious goop has spewed up through a crack in the earth at a natural-gas exploration site, swamping everything in its path. The expanding, surreal gray lake with the stench of rotten eggs has enveloped more than 10 square miles of land in eastern Java, Indonesia's most densely populated island. The flow has forced 8,000 to 10,000 people from their homes, engulfed about a dozen factories, contaminated fish farms and intermittently closed a major highway.

Indonesia plays down likelihood of bird flu cluster Indonesian health authorities have played down the likelihood of a bird flu cluster case in an area in West Java where at least three people have been infected with the deadly virus. A cluster case -- where human-to-human transmission occurs rather than infection through sickened poultry -- heightens the chance of the H5N1 virus mutating to become easily spread among people.

Indonesia faces obstacles in eradicating bird flu The huge territory and people's ignorance had hampered Indonesian health authorities' efforts to eliminate bird flu, Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla said here on Friday. Since the government launched massive efforts to combat the spread of the virus a few years ago, many chicken and bird traders and owners have been reluctant to kill their belongings which were found infected with the H5N1 virus, due to the lack of knowledge about the danger of virus and the consideration that about ten U.S. cents compensation for a poultry was too little.

Death toll from Java tsunami at 327 Tearful parents searched for missing children Tuesday, and soldiers dug through the debris of homes flattened by the second tsunami to hit Indonesia in as many years. Well over 300 people were killed and more than 160 others were missing. The waves tossed fishing boats 100 yards inland and turned the resort's main street into a tangled junkyard of busted buildings, cars and furniture. Bodies were piled in temporary morgues.

Tsunami on Java coast kills over 100 people A tsunami triggered by a strong undersea earthquake off the coast of Indonesia's Java island on Monday killed at least 80 people, swept away buildings and damaged hundreds of fishing boats, officials and witnesses said.

Homeless adrift a year after Boxing Day tsunami Billions of dollars have been pledged and thousands of new homes built but the city of Banda Aceh is still a scene of devastation after the Boxing Day tsunami of last year. Tens of thousands are surviving in shanty towns of scrap wood and metal churned up by the terrifying force of the sea. There are 67,500 still living in tents. More than 200,000 survivors are thought to be staying with friends or relatives. Along the coast, towns and villages are nothing more than swampland and rubble. Survivors are jammed together in windowless plywood barracks hurriedly built by the army.
