    Good Morning, Ulster! Enjoy Your Big Day! 

    I gather the leftist ratbags who run UK Pravda…

    …aka BBC, decided they’d minimise coverage of the Glorious Twelfth….

    …but rest assured, as I assured my Indonesian friend over Sunday lunch at the weekend, there’s a wee hoose, a small corner on the island of Java…

    …where, with You Tube assistance, the grand old loyal songs will be sung, and even a bit of a one-man march around the living-room!
    As the fight goes on against the combined enemies….

    …Eire expansionism, and…


    ….Fourth Reich arrogance, let every True Brit’s voice be heard…



    …and the war-cry ring out!

    Happy Twelfth! 


    A bright and glorious day, come any weather!

    Oh, and please keep marching, until every inch of British soil is prised free from the clammy grip of that perfidious Protocol…



    ..so dear to Ulster’s enemies in  Brussels…

    ..and Dublin!

    I see Lord Frost has lamented the dirty deal, but he asserts that “unfortunately we are where we are.”


    To which every loyal voice in Ulster should loudly respond –


    ‘Here WE are, and we shall not be moved!

    It’s The Glorious Twelfth Of July! 

    Whether or not they are members of any Orange lodge…



    …all good Ulsterfolk, and the diaspora, will join me, I hope, in cheering and sharing this simple message!



    Have a fine day!

    Bon Soir, Cote D’Ivoire!! 

    What a fine Twelfth July weekend, a pleasant day mostly indoors yesterday, and today I rose relatively early, for a Sunday.

    After the traumatic closure – as reported, for Ramadan – of the warteg which is my best-beloved eatery, a trek into town, in search of victuals, was in order.

    Although alert for marching bands, neither on Jalan Gatot Suproto nor anywhere around Grogol were any flutes or drums to be heard.


    not seen in Jakarta today


    Having, several months ago, been lucky in a lucky draw, there had long been nestling on my desk a voucher, Rp.200,000, for Maroush, that Lebanese-style resto in the Crowne Plaza, by Semanggi, .

    So there I went, via the Giant supermarket nearby.

    Bag heavy with packets of mie goreng and kopi instan, I toddled along to the hotel and, upstairs in the CP, walked into  Maroush to show my voucher.



    Still valid, the nice waitress agreed, and led me to a comfortable seat.

    The great thing about dining out at lunchtime in Ramadan is that service is quick – I was the only customer! Then an Indian bloke came in, exchanging polite nods with me as he was led to a fairly distant table. Evidently an even speedier eater than I (and I’m famous as a lightning trencherman)  by the time my order arrived (and that was barely ten to fifteen minutes) he had scoffed whatever he had, paid his bill and gone!


    Mine must have taken longer to prepare -lamb biryiani – but it was excellent.



    I had a beer to wash it down, and then, since today is after all a big day, I had ‘one more for dessert’ (quote, Johnny Cash, ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down’)  

    I rarely eat big before sundown, and just about never drink beer A on my own and B during daylight, so my immediate reaction to these delights was to get drowsy!

    But I pulled myself together and took my leave of the Maroush, reaching home on a minimally traffic-jammed Jakarta road system by 4pm.

    What a grand little Twelfth weekend I’ve had.

    • Oh, you are wondering, why the greeting to the Ivory Coast?

    Well, I just checked my stats for today and found that no less than five inhabitiants of that equatorial African state have been tuning into RRA since this morning.

    Welcome, new readers!

    “Angry drunk woman attacked boyfriend for refusing sex…” 

    Angry drunk woman attacked boyfriend for refusing sex

    Angry drunk woman attacked boyfriend for refusing sex

    A US woman has been arrested for beating up her boyfriend because he said no to sex. Tabatha Lee Grooms, 35, returned home from a boozy night out still fuming with her boyfriend for spurning her advances earlier in the day…

    How could he?

    Maybe he was in a grumpy mood after somebody broke his white stick?


    Actually, it’s a serious issue, but humour can make you think!


    Enough already. I’m going out while that hot Jakarta sun still shines. Since my warteg is now closed for Ramadan, I aim to make a virtue of necessity and indulge myself with a glorious Twelfth brunch!
