    Getting a property in bali

    B Be aware, A foreigner cannot own property in Indonesia, in their name. It must be in an Indonesian's name. Same with motorbikes ans cars. Although, If you have the kitas or kitap visa, you can have vehicle's in your name. I don't know if this applies to property. Someone else on the forum...

    Food blogs - Indonesian cooking

    T Thanks Harry. I went the Grand Lucky, 2 weeks ago. I was blown away how much inventory they had. I stocked up on lots of supplies for a long while. I saw the delicious looking steaks, and cheeses, but was amazed how expensive they were! I can't afford to spend 1,000,000RP, on one steak, or a...

    Food blogs - Indonesian cooking

    That's too bad. Because Kimchi, and Sauerkraut are delicious and good for your stomach! And cabbage is easy to grow, and abundant. Plus they don't need refrigeration. Also I love good cheese, yoghurt, keifer, but the only cheese here, is the horrible yellow goo that comes in a squeeze tube! And...

    Good on ya Mate! My friend had never tried Tomato juice. While I was making a Bloody Mary, he asked for a taste. He was blown away, and said he liked it. I will try your approach of offering a spoonful to see their reaction. Once My friend in Padang Bai saw me using some capers. I gave him one...

    Food blogs - Indonesian cooking

    I agree %100. I am always baffled at the one mind mentality of living with people that all think, cook, act, pollute, all the same! Often I ask if they like something new to them like, real cheese, green tea, palm sugar, olive oil, seaweed, olives, soy sauce, etc. and they tell me they don't...

    Food blogs - Indonesian cooking

    I find it humorous, that everything here is cook to the point of no return! I don't ever ask for a fried egg, because it will come cooked so hard, it could be used as building material. For my safety, I have narrowed it down to, soft boiled eggs, toast, oatmeal, mixed fruit, and chicken soup...

    Jamie Oliver's new restaurant now open in Kuta

    If this price is true, for an average meal, I don't think the locals are going to rushing to go there! Maybe for a slice of pizza?

    An Interesting Blog on how Aussies don't know much about Indonesia

    Have you watched any YouTube lately? The advertizing is so childish, it's comical! A bunch of young girls, dressed in school uniforms, with bleached skin bouncing around like Rabbits, or two guys excited that disposable razors have a flexible head! Oh and the ad promoting gooey sticky, sugary...

    Tourist tax

    S Since the official site is so poorly run, maybe they should hire the cyber criminals, to create a proper official website!

    Increasing animosity towards bule: Real or fake news?

    I I am calm. I said people should think for themselves, and make their own decisions, about religion. This subject, along with politics, are two subjects to avoid talking about everywhere. Especially family gatherings!

    Increasing animosity towards bule: Real or fake news?

    Why? It's none of their business! Not everyone is brainwashed by the status quo! Some people question, or don't believe, or have a religion! I think it's a good idea to use your own mind, and decide what's best for you!

    Increasing animosity towards bule: Real or fake news?

    Well said about the motorbike accident! It's always someone else's fault! The part about losing face, drives me crazy! If I ask someone for something, I want, They never say yes or no, they just go away and only return if they can produce what I want. If not, they just never tell me, or never...

    Elections in France

    Well, I kinda like that word Malarky! Joe, sounded pretty feeble in that debate! It's a shame, someone younger with more bright, positive energy, isn't running for President! Saying the Left have negative protest, and the right are just a bunch of nice God fearing folks, that sing bible hymns...

    How to Get Them Going?

    I don't think anyone wants to go back 200 years, for a better way, but We all could use products made with integrity that last much longer, being reusable many times! There many bright minds out there, that could come up with ideas, how to make take old ideas, and combine them with new ideas, to...

    How to Get Them Going?

    Very well said by all parties! As Harryopal said, it is a social responsibility greater than just profit for shareholders. I think it is the moral obligation for the corporations to provide biodegradable plastics for the sake of the Planet! And to provide more assistance in providing bins, pick...

    How to Get Them Going?

    This is so True! If the Governments had a spine, and actually did something good for the Planet and All, instead of lining their pockets with pay off money, then they would make the petrochemical companies develop a safer biodegradable plastic, that would compost and not leave pollution! Yes for...
