    Elitism – Gushing Guardian Girl Lauds Canada’s Almost Flushed Turd! 

    The political scandal engulfing the Canadian prime minister has outed him as not quite the hero we all believed he was…

    Justin Trudeau’s disgrace is like watching a unicorn get run over




    The idea has often occurred to me that one of the key mental issues afflicting liberals is that they don’t get out and about very much.

    Sure, they go to work  – in the Guardian office, perhaps, and to parties (probably not proper drinking / singing /dancing parties    – more the sort of twee ‘dinner-parties’ one sees on tv or films, where mincing twits sit around a table sipping at wine, nibbling muesli…




    …and gabbling pretentious stuff on which they all agree -otherwise they’d not have been invited – ) …


    ….but they never get to – or choose to – meet real people with opinions outside the pink – or rainbow – bubble.

    And that ‘ALL’ as used in a gushing Guardian piece by some silly little girl named Leah McLaren…

    Image result for leah mclaren

    …whom nobody I know has heard of but who does perfectly mirror the mentality of many in Canada…

    …that ‘ALL’ exemplifies the ignorance of the breed that has degraded the Dominion!

    She really thinks that ‘ALL’ Canadians EVER ‘believed Justin Turdo, the Soft-On-Terror Pretty Boy…

    The ‘gay-friendly’ Prime Minister infamously tried to make excuses for the Boston Bombers…

    Canada’s Enemy Within – Will Turdeau “Have To Look at The Root Causes?” 


    …..was a ‘hero?’

    Let’s play nice and assume she is intelligent enough to know that notion is arrant nonsense.

    That leaves us with the alternative, that her definition of ‘ALL’ means ideological catamites, ‘intellectuals,’ leftists, ‘progressive’ pinkos…

    – ….and don’t forget all the crimmigrants he’s let in – who idolise the degenerate drip as much as she does…




    …and excludes ‘ALL’ other Canadians, who certainly number in the millions, those who recognise Turdo as a loathesome, smarmy sleaze.

    What a sad girl she must be!

    Read her infantile gushing over –

     ‘Canada’s undeniably gorgeous, halo-bound Liberal prime minister, Justin Trudeau – proud feminist, defender of minority rights, advocate for transparency, inclusivity and decency..’

    – for yourselves but make sure there’s a vomitorium handy!

      How old is this gushy little girl?
      She sounds like my niece who, when around 13 years of age, used to talk like that about Brad Pitt!
      The difference is that my niece grew up.
      It sounds like Little Leah is stuck in an adolescent ‘hero-worship’ mentality.
      But what a putrid hero she chooses.

      What an empty head that Leah must have and how rude too!
      That rude ‘all’ ,as if everyone in Canada who doesn’t kiss Turdo’s ass like she does is a NON citizen.

    Misteri Gunung Semanggi – Kemana Raksasanya? A Giant Vanishes! 

    Sad to see the handy Giant Supermarket at Plaza Semanggi is no more.


    • plaza_semanggi]
    • ========
    • It was a useful shopping centre, often with excellent discounts, two loaves for the price of one (same offer for yummy donuts!) plus eggs at 50% the regular price, and often chicken legs, breasts and other interesting parts at similarly reduced prices.
    • ==================================
    • Alas, it’s gone, maybe forever, though of that I can’t be sure.
    • ————————-

    When I went in there last month, the shelves were virtually bare. The security man on duty confirmed my worst fears, ‘closing down,’ but only this branch, he added, so I suppose I can venture to Slipi Jaya’s Giant. Used to shop there a lot, because my then co-shopper favoured it, but co-shoppers change…or rather, we do change our co-shoppers from time to time!

    It turns out Giant is owned by Hero, who also have supermarkets in their own name, which I also patronise because they sell cat-food at reasonable prices. Hero say they’re not closing down branches, simply moving them. Yet no info on where they are moving to!  http://bisniskeuangan.kompas.com/read/2015/08/11/114600926/Hero.Akan.Pindahkan.Gerai.Giant

    I further learned that Plaza Semanggi is owned by the Lippo Group, an outfit indelibly associated with the ghastly Clinton family!

    Lippo also own Hypermart…




    The Clinton connection, and the icy temperature they insist on maintaining in at least one of their outlets…

    Astaga! Makanan Kucing Kampung, Rp. 19,900? 

    …makes me reluctant to shop there unless absolutely necessary!

    So will Hypermart decide to occupy the vacant space!

    Let the mystery unfold!

      Why is this Lippo Group ‘indeliiby’ tied to the Clintons?
      Please explain this.

      I like Plaza Semanggi, it is a good place to shop and I hope Giant will not move so far away.
      But Semanggi is very easy to be lost in, many times go round and round to find shop I been in before. I like Kuningan City Mal much better.

    Un-Fasting In An Empty City, Plus A Movie Review, Sort of… 

    Well, one of my regular visitors will soon be on a train, heading upcountry, for most of a week. Nor is that homeward-bounder the only absent friend, another also away in East Java, till the start of August.

    And those who have got back to Jakarta already are too busy for the social whirl.

    What am I to do without them?

    Blog, I guess, but no major political posts ready today, so for now, just this.


    This past week, the few days when Jakarta awaits the return of its population from all the little kampungs they’ve gone home to, provides a golden opportunity to check out places you’ve wondered about but couldn’t summon up the energy to investigate, simply because the horrible traffic renders it too hard a challenge to undertake.

    • bc4fa-malciputragrogol Citraland
    • As regular readers know, the Hero supermarkets often offer good deals,  like the smoked ham I mentioned a while ago, as well as eggs, frequently discounted by 50%. Since Hero has branches at Citraland and at Puri Indah, it’s not unusual for me to jump on the B14 angkot that plies between the two.
    • puri Puri Indah
    • And on that route, the A&W in Kedoya is a place often seen but never, till this week, experienced. Nor could it be, for two months, till this past week it re-opened after extensive renovations, which included, to my delight, a large open area upstairs.


    • congratulationssuperjob
    • Well, first of all, an open area means smokers don’t get persecuted – and it’s nearly as good as a balcony. 

    Balconies have for years inspired me, that carnival atmosophere of sitting up somewhere and watching the world go by, a place detached enough to reflect, while wide open with views in various directions. So this week I dismounted and tried it out. I took a paperback, a Robert Goddard novel newly acquired from Lottemart (‘Play to the End,’ a great read, Rp.30K) I smoked and watched what there was of the world go by – but not a lot to watch, this week, in our empty city!

    But I do wish A&W would skip the cr#p. I refer to those tiny, obscure little signs saying that the prices displayed ( about four times the size of those obscure signs) are subject to a 10% tax. 



    There’s no need for such sly add-ons!

    Just be upfront, quote the actual price, for God’s sake!

    I detest this ‘plus-plus’ garbage that one encounters all over the city. Governor Ahok should put it on his list of things to clean up.

    The burger I ordered included fries and a big glass of root beer, advertised at Rp. 52K, the real price soaring to Rp.57.500 –




    – enough almost to tempt me into emulation of Michael Douglas in that great movie ‘Falling Down!’

    Tangent time!

    Some of you may never have seen, or even heard of, the film, but it’s brilliant, a ripping one-day yarn excoriated by one demented pinko critic, named Tasha Robinson, in terms that convey just what a wonderful watch it is –


    “It’s seemingly meant as a sort of dark comedy about the petty annoyances of life, and how they can accumulate and become so maddening that over-the-top cathartic violence seems like the only satisfying option.

    But Douglas’ violent reaction to his surroundings, and the way the film treats virtually everyone around him as worthless, and presents his violence as the comedic payoff, turns it into a tone-deaf, self-pitying lament about the terrible persecution facing the oppressed majority in an era of political correctness and increasing multiculturalism.  .http://www.avclub.com/article/our-most-hated-movies-of-the-90s-86560


    That shrill shrew’s ‘review’ tells you what a damn fine film it was, a lot of good-for-nothing gits getting their due!

    Get a DVD and enjoy!

    End of tangent


    However, A&W’s stuff was edible and potable enough, the waitresses cute enough, the free gift of a purple plastic mug breath-taking enough, so no need for such Douglas-oid responses!

    Alas, I fear fast food does not always agree with me – I can at least testify to the cleanliness of their toilets! To be fair, everyone else seemed perfectly happy with what they ordered. 

    The following day I went to Kepa Duri Busway stop, which is very close to a big food-court which opened last year. As buses have borne me past, en route to Permata Hijau… 



    …I’ve oftimes speculated on its merits.

    For future reference, there’s a little bandstand at the Seven 8 Nine, and looking through Google, it looks like they have live music at night. Better still, there are signs indicating beer is available, and if the pork ribs are as good as their signs suggest, there’s clearly something to be said for a visit. 

    Sadly, I can’t say my visit was worth the effort in terms of emerging with a full gut. I didn’t eat, because many of the food-stalls were still closed, and when I went to buy some pork ribs, it turns out you have to get some sort of card, at a separate booth, before you can obtain any sustenance at all.

    Too much hassle!

    A walk down the road, where a much humbler food court charged me nearly Rp.30,000 for some bits of chicken and a chunk of rice. The proprietor was pleasant enough, as he handed me a menu with only three choices, but when I chose one, he quickly told me that one wasn’t available!

    Desperate, I ordered a plate of ayam gongo, chicken being forever cheap here in Jakarta.  I unwisely didn’t ask the price – 


    Twice what I pay for a brimming plate of goodies at my warteg.

    Hurry back from Tegal, ladies! Though maybe they can’t – I heard on tv last night there was a 10 kliks traffic jam in that North Java city where my warteg providers are vacationing.

    That ayam gongo place was, is, NOT a good deal, so I won’t bother to raise that second foodcourt from deserved obscurity by naming it.

    Today I venture forth once more, foraging again, but last night?

    Home-cooked left-overs, spuds, mince and mie goreng!

    My next five to ten days will be a waiting game, who returns faster, the eatery gals or my visitors….meanwhile I must be content with the company of my old buddy, Mr. Johnny Walker.

      Morning, Ross.
      I am delighted too, more because you are back on the subject of Jakarta. For most of the week you have been writing about America. I can see you are making useful points but I like to read about what you call ‘our fine city.’
      There’s always a lot of Jakarta news and that should give you a lot of raw meat to get your fangs into.
      What’s Ahok doing? How’s Jokowi? The MUI? The FPI?
      Tell us please.
      Otherwise we only have the Jakarta Post or the Jakarta Globe to turn to and I know what you think of them.

      Plus-plus is so really annoying.
      I take my little sister and her friends from school, prices at AW say I must pay 280000 rupes so I give 300000.
      No change, they ask me more than 300000.

    Jakarta Barat ke Bandara Soekarno Hatta – New Airport Bus! 

    I was down by Puri Indah one day last week,  and I see there’s a new airport bus service from Lippo Mall, starting this month!

    Only a couple of morning services outwards, 8am and 10am, and two in the afternoon returning from Jakarta’s International Airport at 4pm and 6pm…

    NB- I’m updating this tonight, April 2016, because I see a lot of people are checking it out. and I have not seen any ads for that bus for ages, so I don’t know if it’s still in service.


    Lippo Mall Puri to oekarno-Hatta Airport 8:00 (everyda)   |   10:00 (everyday)
    Soekarno-Hatta Airport to Lippo Mall Puri 16:00 (everyday)   |   18:00 (everyday)

     …but a lot easier to reach than Blok M or Gambir or Lebak Bulus, if you live in West Jakarta.


    And I see there’s a brand new Cinema XXI opening this week there too!


    XXI in lippo mall puri


    So maybe we’ll give it a spin!

    But not  this week, two parties to go to, plus at least two very welcome visitors due here!


    Just got back around three o’clock, from a walkabout, a bus-about, more accurately, on a Jakarta arvo that became delightfully sunny, time enough to sunbathe even, when I got home.

    Had to hit Ratu Plaza to get a new anti-virus for my laptop, got Kapersky again, as it has done a fair job in the past.  I paid some Rp.300,000 but surely well worth it, if those idiotic and infuriating pop-ups are dispelled!



    So one hopes my computer’s security is now enhanced, though I notice that Ratu’s security has been diminished.

    The guys at the front door  usually check bags going in, but now there’s a new 7/11, where I bought a pack of Bohem Hijau and noticed that it has both a front and back door, The front door opens onto the parking area on the Sudirman side, where anyone can, as I did, stroll in from the main road, while the back door takes you straight into the mall.

    So any aspiring suicide-bomber can easily pop in, buy his last smokes and then detonate himself toward those 72 burly queers or lascivious sheep waiting for him in Hell.


    •  Nice one, Bin Laden!


    Also had a brief recce round Plaza Semanggi, checking out grocery discounts at Giant – not much doing this week but Lotte at Ratu had spuds at 40% – okay!

    Though their cat food is outrageously priced, Rp.17,000 the cheapest.


    Lotte Mart, Ratu Plaza

    And they’ve moved it to a distant shelf – why do supermarkets here always seem to think that dogs and cats are used to carry out DIY or garden maintenance? That’s where they all end up locating pet supplies!

    I’ll pick up some cans for HRH in Hero next week, under Rp.13,000 there.



    But good news!

    Lotte are still doing those import paperbacks, only Rp.30,000 – today I got Timeline, by Michael Crichton; they made quite a good movie of the book a few years ago, starring, if I’m not wrong, Billy Connolly.

    So praying for more good weather tomorrow, the better to read in sunshine out front.
