No sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes. After reading many posts here, it is best to look around at the different areas before settling on one to live for a month or more. Could someone give suggests for that mode of transportation. I really don't want to drive a car but I...
I reported few months ago a fraud and embezzlement. Just few days ago I received a litter from the officer who handled the case that there was no criminal case... He adviced that I could complain. With whom? Him! Does somebody similar experience? What tomdo?
Hi there, I am in a debacle. We have a friend who is Indonesian who we have known for 10+ years. He is married and has three children. As he has always been very good to us when we have been in Bali and we consider him part of our family, we would love to have him come to Australia for a two...
Finally secured some land at Balian Beach. We are now trying to find a good builder who understands good quality work and charges a fair rate. Not an exorbitant rate. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I can't imagine its a good time to be living in Thailand right. Seems like a lot of uncertainty in the country and people wondering what direction the country is going in.
I know we like to complain about the bureaucracy here but many things seem to be worse in Thailand...
Hi All, I am coming to Bali with the other half for a week. We normally go to Thailand and have used the expat forum there for great advice. Figure the Bali one would be the same.
My brother was in Bali about a year ago and hired a local he met outside his hotel to show him and his family...

This is the only forum that I could see that fits my question.
I want to buy a SAMSUNG TAB S2 9.7" and I have tried Cellular World (Tuban) and I was told Toko Mar (??) didn't have them either.

We have been here a month now and we have realized that the 2-prong electrical plugs and outlets (receptacles) are just not doing the job.
They seem to make an electrical connection fine, but a very poor mechanical one. The least bit of jostling (such as moving the lamp on the table to...
The family and I have been in Bali for about 5 months now. Feeling settled in, but would like to buy a second hand car. Renting is not viable as we'll be here a long time. I have seen lots of expats driving old suzuki jimny/katanas and they seem to be what we need. Something...
We've had Telkom cable TV for about four years and it's been just OK. The picture went blank yesterday and no-one answers the phone. My wife will go to the office tomorrow but meanwhile I'd ask members for opinion on a better service (I live in Kerobokan).
We get CBN fiber TV (Dens TV) included...
