    Happy Easter To All Our Readers! 

    The Easter weekend begins, and today will be a day of rest, no visitors scheduled, no outings, as I have enough household necessities – cigarettes, coffee, beef rendang and potatoes…



    …and a couple of paperbacks to read out front while the Jakarta sun continues to shine.

    It is a murder mystery and political thriller set in a near-future federal Europe, where no-one can be “prejudiced from employment for reason of age, race, creed or incompitence.” Consequently, much of the population demonstrates an extreme lack of competence in their occupations.    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incompetence_(novel)

    I recommend that one, which I’m halfway through, but maybe you prefer to idle indoors or, if you’re in Britain, go down the pub!

    Whatever your preference…

    So today, a real holiday, the holy day aspect reserved for Sunday, and enough social activity tomorrow – a most welcome guest due for brunch-time, a telcon with those overseas who matter to me, and a night out with friends.

    I hope you too will have a Happy Easter.

      Happy Easter to you too, Ross.
      Enjoy your lazy day and your book, which sounds like one I too would enjoy.

    Too Hot for Hamas? International Women’s Day 2017! 

    Somebody reminded me a few days ago that March 8th is International Women’s Day.

    Since the Islamist bigots of Hamas have cancelled the holiday even their Palestinian rivals have declared –  http://www.theisraelproject.org/hamas-vetoes-international-womens-day/ – it seems all the more incumbent on normal folks to say something about it.

    I could have posted on heroic European women, like Marine Le Pen or Frauke Petry. 


    But on reflection, I thought, no, we touched on such stellar examples last Sunday –Silly Old Pole Subjected To Euro-Censorship? OUTRAGEOUS!   – so let’s give politics a break, at least for this morning, and focus on local ladies here in Indonesia. 

    We have covered ( if that’s the appropriate word!) several of them over the years.

    So just a handful (pleasant thought!) today to celebrate why we really do appreciate these delights.


    Like my personal favourite, Roro Fitria…



    …and Citra Yunita Sari…

    And the intriguingly named Duo Buldozer…

    The ladies above are all dangdut singers, and if you haven’t heard of dangdut, it’s the musical genre that ordinary Indonesians love.




    Just check it out via Google search.

    But since I don’t want to be accused of bias towards Indonesian beauties, here’s that yummy Turk we featured a year or two ago…




    …I wonder whatever happened to her, after she lost her job for being gorgeous!

      This is an insult to International Women’s Day, pure sexism, all deep cleavages and thighs and it shows how you truly look at women.
      You are old now and should be beyond this teenage ogling but i suppose it is the habit of a life-time for your kind of chauvinist!.
      Shame on you!

        I suppose that all means a date is out of the question?

      This from 2017 was much better than the one you published today.
      But both are enjoyable.
