    Berlin Wall Jakarta -Kenapa Kalijodo? Lebih Baik Lubang Buaya! 

    I’m not sure that putting part of the Berlin Wall at Kalijodo is entirely appropriate.

    A former red-light zone, now a youngsters’ recreation area, KJ seems an odd site, but since the Indonesian artist was desperate to find a location for his work, why not?

    Interesting, though, to note that nowhere in the Jakarta Post report –  http://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2017/10/05/teguh-ostenriks-berlin-wall-in-jakarta-art-to-overcome-divisive-powers.html–  does the moral blight of communism get a mention, despite communism being the raison d’etre of the Wall of Shame.



    The JP talks about the Cold War, but fails to name the evil ideology which that war was waged to resist – and which came close to devouring the Indonesian archipelago.

    It penned in Germans who wanted to be free of marxist misrule.

    I suppose the Jakarta Post’s omission is down to their relentless compassion for the red vermin of the PKI, the Indonesian Communist Party…


    Jakarta Post – Never Miss a Chance to Re-Hab Reds! 

    …which would, if given the chance, have subjected this lovely country to the same horrors that their comrades in Europe inflicted on countless victims in Eastern Europe.



    Worse, maybe, since the unlamented Aidit, PKI fuhrer, is on record as regarding North Korea as his fave totalitarian model.

    For my part, I’d have thought the Lubang Buaya, on the east side of town, would be more suitable.



    That’s where the grand memorial to the officers murdered in the attempted Red take-over of 1965 stands, a perennial reminder of the evil of communism.

    Bravo, Jakarta’s Djarot! Why Can’t Councillors Use Buses! 

    What a pity Governor Djarot will soon be replaced by a man whose fans include the white-shirt vigilante gang, the self-styled ”Islam Defenders’ Front” aka FPI!

    • But Djarot is only there because his predecessor, the honourable Ahok, was clapped in jail, to worldwide dismay, for the bizarre ‘crime’ of ‘blasphemy.’

    But in the few brief months Ahok’s deputy has been running Jakarta, he has done a pretty fair job…

    Jakarta’s Djarot Talks Sense – ‘Shape Up Or Ship Out!’ 

    …though I suppose some will be eager to see him out of City Hall, so the new regime can get to work on such inspirational schemes as the promoting of ‘shariah tourism.’

    Djarot tells councillors to return cars

    Jakarta Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat has told all city councillors to return their official cars before demanding their transportation allowances.

    “All the 101 official cars should be returned, then we can compensate for them with a transportation allowance. Otherwise, we’ll not disburse the allowance…” 


    We’re not talking old jalopies here.

    Another local report describes the vehicles as ‘luxury cars…’

    Djarot Minta Mobil Dinas Mewah Anggota DPRD DKI Ditarik!

    The Jakarta Post explains that the ever-diligent councillors have the right to a transportation allowance, rather than a car, to assist them in carrying out their duties.

    Unfortunately, many have yet to return the Toyota Corolla Altis cars provided to them.

    Not being a car-nut, I had no idea what a Toyota Corolla Altis might be like, so I made the effort to find out. Hasil gambar untuk toyota corolla altis

    Not bad, huh?

    I guess if I possessed such a splendid vehicle, I too would be slow to give it up, but since these councillors do NOT possess the cars, only have the use of them, they have no right whatsoever to hang onto them when ordered to hand them back!

    I wonder how many Jakarta citizens who, like me, go to and fro by public transport, would prefer to see their elected ‘representatives’ do the same.

    Indeed, judging from the big ads around Jakarta…

    …urging us all to reduce traffic jams by using public omnibuses, the councillors ought to lead by example.

    Give ’em a bus pass!

    They can flash it as they board and go about their duties for free!


    TransJakarta Bus


    Likely, if forced to use buses, they’d opt for the modern and usually very clean, although often very crowded, TransJakarta vehicles…


    But what a joy it would be to see them travelling on the good old kopajas!

      Good idea or make them use motorbikes.

      On a pretty grim day, I appreciate something to brighten us up.
      The Jakarta councillors have a high opinion of themselves and it would do them good to suffer a touch of Jakarta real life.
      A daily Kopaja trip, home and back, might be just what they need.

    Kasihan Joker! How Sad! East Jakarta Bully-Bigot Bashed! 

    Pouring down outside, but sometimes a rainy day can still be a fun day…



    ….and I hope readers everywhere can find a ray of sunshine to brighten up their lives.

    Certainly the obnoxious brute who, carrying sharp weapons and shouting…


    … terrorised Christian children attending a Saturday service in a Jakarta low-rent apartment block on Saturday…


    watch and listen to the armed, hate-spewing lout…oh, and get this captivating description – he is known as a popular de facto Islamic authority in their neighborhood…

    …does not deserve a happy week and so far he’s not having one…

    …after getting duffed up by some angry citizens who may have found the swine’s subsequent ‘apology’ unconvincing.

    Kasihan! Oh, poor ‘Joker!’


    However, the report in the Jakarta Post makes disturbing reading.

    Apparently the pig-ignoramus, named M. Nasoem Sulaiman ( inexplicably nick-named ‘Joker’) attended a ‘mediation’ meeting, along with one of his victims, named Inggrid, after his disgusting intimidation of the children, a meeting attended also by the police!

    Like, uh, what’s to ‘mediate?’

    He should have been arrested, and of course fired by the apartment management from his job as a ‘handyman!‘ (handy with what, sharp weapons that terrify tiny tots?)

    Having watched the video, a question arises – who is that sneaky-looking creature in the white cap and shirt standing immediately behind the lout?

    That kind of outfit is often sported by a notorious sectarian thug-gang here in Indonesia.

    Some investigative reporting, please!

      It is horrible to see this video and to know that this horrible man has not been fired or arrested.

      Of course we will all send flowers to him in the hospital. I am sure all the children he made to cry with his screaming and sharp weapons will come to visit him too.
      Same like you so often say, ‘you got to be kidding.’

      So heart-breaking, yes, what happen to this cruel man who scares the little children.
      Why is he going into the hospital and not into the prison?
