    Jakarta Censors Exhibit Thigh-Phobia Symptoms! 

    Through an official statement issued on its website, the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) issued a stern warning to 11 television stations that aired Blackpink Shopee ads and the “Shopee Road to 12.12 Birthday Sale” event.



    And that’s another lurch into desolation, surely, arguably made worse if the claim is true that the KPI’s kill-joy commissars are not merely succumbing to pressure from backward petitioners against the delightful and not remotely offensive advert..

    …but were ALREADY fretting over ‘respect for politeness norms stipulated in the Broadcasting Broadcasting Code and Broadcast Program Standards (P3SPS) Guidelines.’

    Like, uh, what is IMPOLITE about those attractive, well-dressed girls?

    Answer- nothing at all!

    But now no less than eleven tv stations have been warned against the thigh menace…


    Shock Horror – it’s a thigh!


    OMG! Another thigh!


    …and threatened with ‘sanctions’

    KPI commissioner Dewi Setyarini denied that her wet-blanket comrades had simply buckled to the wowsers.

    She insisted that the KPI team had submitted a complaint about the advertisement, long before the petition appeared demanding the removal of the advertisement.

    “We were actually discussing it last week (the advertisement),

    How that ad offends ‘politeness’ is nowhere explained, but the Indonesian word ‘kesopanan’ can also be translated as ‘decency…’

    ….so we have to ask once more –

    WHAT is ‘indecent’ about short skirts?

    Except in the narrow minds of fanatics, of whom, sadly, there are a lot here, like those sad people who present shariah costume as ‘Modest Fashion…’

    Offensive In Jakarta – Women Can Be Modest Without Being Sectarian! 

    ….a form of words grossly offensive to the millons of normal, polite, decent women who dress modestly every day but do not get their knickers in a twist about allowing us guys a glance at a nice knee…


    …a spot of cleavage, a shapely thigh or even a sexy shoulder!

    Who can forget the bizarre outburst from Suryadharma Ali, when he was President SBY’s Minister of Religious Affairs…

    .The Beat, Jakarta, 29th March 2012 –  Indonesia’s powerful Religious Affairs minister, Suryadharma Ali, has declared that miniskirts are pornographic and should be banned under tough new anti-porn laws.


    Appointed by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono earlier this month to run the new task force into pornography, Ali told reporters in Jakarta yesterday that a set of universal criteria must be decided. He added that, “one criteria will be when anyone is wearing a skirt above the knee.”

    One might have hoped that when he was jailed for graft…


    …we’d hear no more such tripe, but…


    NB – although the sticky-beak moaners have amassed over 100,000 signatures for their anti-beauty moan, the pro-beauty petition has also been gathering more support, I’m told not far off 80,000 names.


    So there’s still hope for Indonesia’s future.

      So embarrassing for our KPI state censor to go back to the crazy thinking of Suryadharma Ali, who also was such a big embarrassment to Indonesia.
      PresidentJokowi promised a ‘Mental Revolution.”
      Now same like you say, we have Killjoy Desolation.

    Matahari Department Store In Ramadhan Knees Panic? 

    Traffic in Jakarta yesterday was a delight, a real change from the usual nightmare.


    The USUAL!


    First day of Ramadhan, so kids off school, people staying home for family fun. It took me under an hour to get from home to Blok M, where I’d a lunch-time rendezvous with some Indonesian friends. I say lunch-time rather than lunch, because they were fasting.

    Arriving way too early, I decided to hang out at JCO with my recently acquired IPad and have a non-fasting coffee while communicating with important folks overseas.

    Oh no!  JCO no longer has a Blok M Plaza outlet!

    Never one to waste a trip, I went downstairs and bought some potatoes in Giant supermarket.



    Then, in case there might be handy discounts in Matahari, I ascended to that fine department store and….


    One of the joys of shopping there has always been their personnel department’s choice of staff.



    Matahari shop assistants are almost without exception very pretty. Their uniforms – as above, though I didn’t take that photo myself –  comprise red tops and black skirts, look smart ,and, while not overtly sexy, enhance the employees’ good looks.

    But when I entered, I saw to my dismay that the girls have all been TROUSERED!

    Needless to say, I made enquiries and was calmly informed that they had been ORDERED to abandon the skirts for the duration of Ramadhan.

    Can this be true?

    My further enquiries, if this bizarre diktat applied to only Muslim staff or was it being imposed on Christian, Hindu or Buddhist girls  – who obviously do not, and are not required to, observe the Islamic Holy Month –  went unanswered.

    Either the people I spoke to didn’t know or were unwilling to say more.

    This is worth asking about, given the fuss made every year by Islamist fanatics, when stores ask staff to wear Santa hats.

    Jemaah Ansharusy Sharia, which aims to spread leaflets about the ban on use of Christmas  accessories by Muslims. In the leaflet, JAS forbids Muslims to help Christians who were preparing for Christmas.



    Outfit NEVER seen in ANY Jakarta mall!


    They also appealed to employers not to force Muslim employees to wear Christmas accessories.  http://www.harianindo.com/2014/12/19/34805/fpi-meminta-agar-perayaan-natal-tidak-menganggu-pemeluk-agama-lain/

    ‘FORCE’ is surely the key word.

    If Matahari girls want to wear trousers, at Ramadhan, because they think a glimpse of their nice knees might distract the devout from the introspection demanded by their creed at this time of year, okay, that’s one thing.

    I find it unlikely, because the uniform skirts are perfectly respectable, hardly micro-minis. Even so, they can take their case to management.

    But for management arbitrarily to order a cover-up of ALL knees?

    What’s wrong with knees anyway?


     In Sumatra, Knee-ophobia Rules! No Knees is GOOD Knees

    Well, lots, according to certain authorities on the subject!

    Fear And Loathing of Knees In MaIaysia, Truly Arabia! 


    I don’t expect Jakarta’s somewhat lack-lustre journo pack to pursue the issue, but would be happy to hear from anyone with info, or just an opinion.

    Oh, and did Matahari supply the trousers, or did the girls have to pay for them? Another question to which the answer might seem obvious.

    But in Jakarta, nothing is quite as predictable as it ought to be!


    If you do drop by, the effort will not be entirely wasted, Some of the SPGs – as is usually the case with SPGs –

    Jakarta Fair – SPGs Alone Make PRJ Worth The Trip! 

    – are still dressed in very feminine skirts!

      My apologies Ross. I doubted you.
      I could not believe that Matahari really did something as pathetic as making all those pretty girls wear trousers for a month.

      Today I made a special trip to check your report.
      Not a knee to be seen!
      Are the other big department stores doing the same to their staff?

    Meskipun Busuk Banget, Zombi2 Masih Bisa Hot, Ya? 

    Just the headline in Indonesian, so relax.

    I know The Walking Dead have plenty of local fans here in Jakarta but I’m sure they don’t need me to celebrate the return of the zombies!

    I of course watched the first part of the new series and highly promising it was.

    However, many people due to work or, here, Jakarta traffic jams, have to miss the initial show and have to view the repeats the next day, so I’m saying nothing to spoil it for them.

    Instead, I’m choosing to go off on a tangent about the female zombies.

    Why do they always wear long dresses, or trousers of some sort? Just because you’re dead, no need to be drab, surely?

    Never once have I spotted a decaying corpse lurching to and fro in a cute miniskirt, or anything like this one…

    …who is NOT from The Walking Dead!

    Such  a pretty putrescent probably find her hunt for prey much easier than the rotting wretches we see on WD every week!

    Any theories?

      I like it when you are funny.
      But you must be fair, the men zombi are never hot or handsome too, am I right?
