    Bacon Diusir Cuma Dari Hero Citraland? 

    Unwilling to be unfair to Hero, I used my meanders around Jakarta this week to see if other branches have dissed pork-fans in the high-handed manner of their Citraland branch.

    Hero Jadi Halal? Bacon Diusir? 


    And they haven’t.

    Both at Puri Indah and Sarinah, non-halal shoppers are properly catered for by Hero management.

    So how come their Citraland branch is so indifferent to people who like bacon with their eggs…




    ….or a nice pork chop for dinner?

    I did send off a polite but indignant enquiry to their central customer service officers, but no reply as yet.

    Let’s keep up the pressure till they do their job and get porcine products back on the shelves.

    Hero Jadi Halal? Bacon Diusir? 

    gandacitr Citraland Mall


    Unwilling to idle at home on the first day of Ramadhan, I duly went out to forage for lunch and thought to do a bit of shopping.

    Shopping at Citraland is usually worth the effort, due to discounts, and, in Hero Supermarket, I was delighted to grab the last pack of 50% eggs.

    But what does one most like to eat with eggs?



    BACON, of course!,  


    So off I wandered down to the meat sector.

    Shock horror! The pork part had disappeared!

    All other items were on display as always, beef, chicken, fish…but that counter at the far end was gone.

    Now I know big stores enjoy shifting things around for no good reason, leaving regular customers baffled…

    …so I searched about for piggy foods, to no avail. Then I returned to the meat area and asked the guy behind the counter.

    “Is there bacon, pak?”

    “No,” was the bapak’s laconic response. No explanation, no ‘sorry, mister,’ no more than a negative grunt.


    What the Hell is Hero up to?

    Grogol and Tanjung Duren, the areas adjacent to where it’s located, are cosmopolitan, loads of students from Trisakti University, a large ethnic Chinese population, as well, naturally, as many other Indonesians who have no sectarian hang-ups about pork. Its removal is a serious customer disservice.

    Why has the pork disappeared?

    An explanation, an apology, then prompt restoration are all very much in order!

    Please demand them!

    Another Italian Court Crawls To Shariah! 

    So now callous cruelty is the latest phenomenon to be excused on shariah grounds by what we thought were civilised European countries?


    Shariah Controlled Zone_thumb[1]


    How long will this appeasement go on?

    I’ll skip comment on the way the report slurs Romania by referring to the brutal curs as ‘Romanian travellers living in a camp‘ – they are quite obviously Roma and readers know what that means… 


    Travellers DON’T Obstruct Roads and Railways! It’s Roma Ratbags! 

    Brussels, to the French, in France – “It’s No Matter if You’reRoma or French!”

     Utopia? Even German Left Wakes Up toRomaParasite Menace! 

    The mangy swine were charged by Genoa police two years ago after publicly slaughtering a young goat by cutting its throat and then hanging it upside down, while it was still conscious….



    Wholesale killing of goats and cattle is not unusual here in Indonesia, which of course is 90% Muslim. It takes place at Idul Adha, not long before the Christmas holiday season as a rule.

    I often see the animals penned up along the roadsides and feel sorry for them. But this is Indonesia, where maltreatment of animals is not something that is covered in many state or city laws.

    Our report, in contrast, comes from Italy, one of the cradles of European culture! Decent locals were horrified – ‘bloodcurdling’ was the word they used to describe what happened.

    But the Roma ratbags were bought to justice!

    The two men were then convicted of animal cruelty and fined €4,600.

    Hold that cheer!

    A grovel git named Judge Mauro Amisano heard the nasty pair’s appeal and let them off, because the act was carried out as part of a religious festival.

    So violation of Italian law is now perfectly okay, if cruel criminals plead that shariah allows it?


    “It cannot be considered illegal because it is a practice which is permitted by the freedom of religious expression.”  http://www.thelocal.it/20160509/italian-court-absolves-two-muslims-fined-over-public-goat-slaughter

     So shariah trumps Italy’s legal code? Murder of apostates and the stoning of alleged adulteresses will feature next on that ass Amisano’s agenda for decriminalisation?



    God damn that sell-out turd of a judge!

    It’s Not Cricket! SIXTEEN BUCKS – to Eat Aussie BUGS? 

    Having only just posted on the good things you can eat here in Jakarta, I feel it’s only fair to look at some other people’s preferences.

    One of my Australian fans sent me this photo.


    image1 (1)


    Asked if it was a joke, the cafe staff gave solemn assurances that it was not.

    Ignoring the horrid prospect of munching on insects, two questions arise..

    A  – Is a ‘paleo cauliflower’ still edible, given the adjective indicates it is ancient?

    B –  Whatever happened to ‘stick another shrimp on the barbie?’

    And one more, I guess…- are crickets halal?

      Hi Ross
      Living in Indonesia you should not be surprised at anything people eat.
      How about the ‘torpedo,’, defined as ‘Indonesian-style sate (barbecued meat on a skewer) made from goat or ox penis.’
      Give me a cricket-burger any day!

    On a Fishy Note – Where’s the Bacon, Miss? UK Stealth Halal? 

    Just got in before the rain started, to find a very fishy story from Portsmouth, England, where parents got rightly up in arms over an arrogant note sent out by a head teacher who seems to think ‘multicult’ is marvellous.

    • multicult3
    • Somebody should tell Julie Smith that this is an English school in England, so if anyone wants a non-British cultural education, they should be sending their kids off to boarding schools overseas. The note read:

    ‘We have a new menu for school dinners starting on April 20, 2015.  ‘Please be assured there is no pork on the menu and the sausages served are halal chicken.’


    The note sent out by mistake by Milton Park School

    Milton Park Primary School is now in denial mode. The note was ‘sent out in error,’ says Smith.  http://www.portsmouth.co.uk/news/education/portsmouth-school-s-mistaken-halal-note-sparks-parents-fury-1-6665289

    So we can all sit back and breathe easy…NOT!

    Firstly,  Smith doesn’t identify the hidden hand behind the ‘error.’ It was obviously typed up on somebody’s orders and it looks to me like the ‘error’ was some school flunkey giving the game away and getting caught out! They forgot, perhaps convinced there’s no fight left in ordinary Brits, to pursue a stealth strategy, multiculturation without parental knowledge or consent.

     Smith has shamefully boasted that ‘we have a wonderful multicultural school,‘ which tells us all we need to know about her commitment to ensuring the children grow up conscious of their duty to be British.

    If they’re migrants or children of migrants, they should be carefully taught that migration, movement, involves change, adaptation, assimilation into the culture, customs and ways of the place that took them in.

    The traditional British diet includes bacon and eggs for breakfast, good helpings of pork chops and/or pork sausages for a main meal, and bacon butties for the kids’ lunch!

    • bacon-and-eggs
    • It’s not compulsory. Some youngsters have their own ideas, as do parents. . Vegetarians, Jews and Muslims won’t relish any of the aforesaid delights, and a veggie menu option is easy to arrange. But a LOT of people abhor the halal method of slaughter.

    To strip every piggy product from the list of choices is downright outrageous.

    No wonder the protest petition got some four thousand signatures! No wonder Smith u-turned so fast.  

    But parents would be very ill-advised to take her on trust. 

    Katie Rogers, 26, has two children who go to the school and said she is glad the rule is not being enforced. But she also said she is confused by the note as the menu for the next three weeks does not include pork.

    A stab in the back by arrogant elitists? I wouldn’t put it past them.

    And I doubt many of those poor Brit parents’ elected representatives – school governors, city councillors or MPs, will do a lot to safeguard their rights.


    Another reason to mobilise.  

    BTW, before you ask – I eat what’s put in front of me. If you are raised in a working-class home, that’s the way you stay. It’s also good manners.

    Now I’m going to fry up some bacon and boil some halal sausages, to see me through this rainy evening and prepare for tomorrow’s visitor
