    Wise Folks in Jakarta Staying Home Tomorrow? 

    The National Police have urged participants of an upcoming protest to maintain order and have reiterated that the police will take security measures of the event planned for Feb. 11.


    We mentioned one of three events scheduled for tomorrow just a few days ago, the ‘prayer-rally’ organised by Islamist fanatics.

    (The National Movement to Safeguard the Indonesian Ulema Council’s Fatwa (GNPF-MUI) members, including the Islam Defenders Front (FPI), the Muslim People’s Forum (FUI)

    Typical peace-loving FPI out for a weekend stroll

    fui anti-america

    FUI does not mince its words either


    Check out (via our Search box) both the FPI and the FUI – they are NOT the sort of people most of us would wish to encounter!


    There are AT LEAST two other crowd-scenes, pre-election rallies by supporters of Ahok and of Agus Yudhoyono.

    Even if no mayhem breaks out anywhere, the normally hellish Jakarta traffic will become horrendous.




    Stay home tomorrow.

    After all, next Wednesday, Election Day, has been declared a public holiday.

    So you can go out and do your ‘weekend’ shopping then.


    Ooops, almost out of coffee- best get out to the nearest mini-mart this morning, despite the rain!

    Besok Macet2 Lagi? IslamoNazi ‘Long March?’ Gimme A Break!

    • One Indonesian word we all learn fast – it means ‘traffic jam’ and we sure do get them a lot!

    Sadly, tomorrow could see Jakarta’s drivers, inured to the misery of congested roads, held to even slower progress than usual.

    • anfpi2
    • The IslamoNazi FPI, self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front,’ are staging what is ludicrously described as a ‘Long March.’

    It’s the latest in their series of shrill bleatings against the capital’s Governor Ahok.





    They have always hated Ahok, as do all the backward bigot elements in the archipelago… 

    Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate 

    …but there’s currently a row over his comments on a Koranic verse.

    Normal rational Muslims have made clear it’s no big deal –

    ..Vice-Chair Regional Board of Nahdlatul Ulama Jakarta, Taufik Damas. reckons Ahok’s words were not degrading to the Qur’an…


    Nu Nahdlotul Ulama


    “From the footage that lasted one hour and 43 minutes, I do not see any words of Ahok that degrade verses of the Koran… ”

    Taufik advised residents to watch the original video in its entirety to find out what Ahok was really saying.

    PWNU DKI Jakarta nilai ucapan Ahok tak nistakan agama – ANTARA …

    Taufik’s NU is the largest Muslim organsation in Indonesia, but there are quite a few rabid fanatics who will grab at any issue to rant against Ahok.

    The white-shirt gang says it will bring five thousand fanatics onto the streets of Jakarta tomorrow  – http://www.tribunnews.com/metropolitan/2016/10/13/5000-anggota-fpi-demo-ahok-besok-polisi-siaga –  parading their sectarian rage from Istiqlal Mosque to the City Hall.


    • Masjid-Istiqlal-Jakarta

    Istiqlal Mosque

    The big mosque is just north of Monas Square, so how can anyone claim that a stroll from there to Jakarta City Hall is a ‘Long March’ – unless they call a halt for coffee at every warkop en route!

    Warkop or warung kopi ia a small humble cafe or coffee-shop…




    But that’s what the report says…di sekitar Masjid Istiqlal hingga Gedung Balai Kota DKI Jakarta, Gambir, Jakarta Pusat… – translate it yourself, Google up a city map, and see what I mean!

    I could walk that distance inside half-an-hour!

    • They could actually dawdle their way through Monas Square, a lovely open green space, which would mean no disruption to road traffic at all.

    • Or they could do their thing on Saturday or Sunday, which would minimise disruption to all the car and motor-bike users who would rather get to and from their work-places than see or hear Islamist extremists stomping and shrieking. 

    • But I fear their nasty little demo on a Friday will exacerbate traffic something terrible.

    Kenapa? Macet Terus, di Jakarta! 

    Hell’s teeeth!

    I was planning on going partying tonight, but when I wandered down after a langorous dog-day (so sorry, Ibi, cat-day) afternoon, it took just one look at the traffic on the main road to dissuade me.


    • MacetMerak240211-1-590x417 macet!
    • ————————–
    • Off to the warteg instead, reducing my expenditure for the evening by about several hundred thousand.

    Now it’s home again, saving my energy till Thursday, if any brave potential visitor decides to risk the work-day macet, or if not, then Saturday. So how come traffc seems to be getting worse? As Ramadan runs its ourse, Jakarta usually thins out. 


    I asked the gals in the warteg – they were not yet busy, since I was dining before the fasting break at sun-down – and they advised me that everyone was rushing home to eat. 

    Whoever, I wondered, forgot the splendid invention of packed lunches ( or luppers – if breakfast at lunch-time is brunch, then lunch at supper-time should surely be thus described?)




    Then I remembered, that sun-down gluttony which frequently marks the month of self-denial. No packed lunch could sate such greed.

    Not everyone’s like that, of course!

    There are many who do take self-denial literally, but there is more food eaten during the fasting month than any other time of year!


    pencarian-fpi-razia-tempat-makan-06 Good appetites galore here, despite unappetising sticky-beaks a-prowl    https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2011/08/09/not-fasting-how-about-a-whipping-aceh-slips-deeper-into-barbarism/

    Mind you, I had SEVEN perkadel earlier, with rice, telor puyuh AND cap cay, and all for Rp 26,500 – and that included my es teh AND a take-away of three gorengan with a couple of eggy things that resemble veggie-omelettes, for a late-night snack.

    So I must be getting into the spirit of the local Festive Season!

    Bravo, Ahok, Tapi…Setiap Pemalas Buruk Harus Dipecat! 

    Great to hear that Jakarta Governor Ahok has again banned the city’s civil servants from using their office cars for personal travel during the Idul Fitri holiday… he suggested city officers use public transportation if they wished to take part in the end-of-Ramadan exodus.



     Right on, making some of these flunkeys mix with the people they’re meant to serve.
    But there’s a next step everyone would cheer.
    A lot of good-for-nothing slugs take extra time and show up late when the holidays are over.
    And I don’t mean the half hour or more, for which some rude  oafs (and oafesses) try to use Jakarta traffic as their excuse…
    …as if they don’t know that Jakarta macet ( traffic) is a nightmare every day so why don’t the idle gits get out of bed an hour earlier to ensure punctual arrival!
    No, every year we read of public employees who get back to their desks DAYS late.
    There is NO excuse.
    Fire them.

    Banyak Pesepeda Bugil Segera Datang ke Jakarta? 

    It’s hard to decide which is more ridiculous.

    The very concept of a World Naked Bike Ride..


    Expelling a male participant following reports that he had an erection.

    Just what do the organisers expect to happen if a bloke finds himself surrounded by naked women, all of whom must have been slightly deranged but some of whom were probably attractive?

    The WNBR was staged in Canterbury, Kent, on Sunday, the ostensible purpose being to raise awareness of the dangers faced by cyclists on the road.

    Here’s a statement from an eye-witness  “Everyone was taking their clothes off to get ready for the ride. I heard gasps and I turned around – it was a horrible sight.”

    But I suspect that among the dozens of naked bodies on display there must have been many other horrible sights.


    While sylph-like lasses displaying their charms for all to see may not be intolerable – and there are bars and clubs galore for those prepared to tolerate such sights…

    Penyari Bugil Kanada – Bare-Naked in a Good Cause? 

    … most of us, once past forty, are best advised to keep our bare essentials to ourselves – that’s not a moral judgement but an aesthetic one.


    “It looked like he was enjoying the event a bit too much.”

    I dare say.

    But the real culprits are the idiots who use their purported concern for road safety as an excuse for gross exhibitionism – like ride organiser Barry Freeman: “We do not accept this behaviour and he was dealt with and removed before the ride started.”


    Duh, engage brain, Barry – if you’re serious about promoting cycling safety, there’s absolutely no need to trivialise the issue by showing off tons of bare bums, etc.

    Or if you are desperate to get naked, hire a private race-track for the final lap, and have the participants decently swim-suited on the public highway till that final lap.

    And as in Toronto (see posts on their pervert parade Stop Toronto’s Gross ‘Gay’ Indecency! ) British Police apparently no longer deem indecent exposure to be an offence. 

    Officers took the man’s details but no further action will be taken. 


    • ……………..

    Another complaint from the member of the public that the event was allowed to take place was being “dealt with..generally speaking, nudity in public is not an offence where there is no intention to cause harassment, alarm and distress and therefore Kent Police did not have any grounds to stop the event.”   


    So some dork can walk down a busy English High Street, full of shopping families, and do so bollock-naked unless cops find cast-iron evidence he is out to cause alarm?


    • stupid_idiots_big
    • Well, that’s what Toronto’s Finest think, so why not in Kent, UK, also?
    • =======================

    According to this utterly amazing report, WNBR events are held in cities and towns around the world.

    I look forward to Jakarta’s.

    Our traffic jams here are already among the world’s worst.

    A bunch of yummy chicks without clothes, pedalling fast and furious, should ensure total grid-lock!

    PS – I cannot find any Jakarta event scheduled. I’m sure readers will advise if they hear of one.
