Travels With(out) Barley (water, yeast, hops and malt, optional) Through East Java 2016

... gas hot water heater.
The previous gas hot water heaters I had/have never impress much. The flame doesn't switch on. Adjusting temperature is a pain in the a$$ either to hot or not hot enough. The gas hot water heaters I see in Mitra10 and elsewhere all seem to be the same. Just wondering...

From what I can gather from the article, it seems like no fatalities but all luggage was lost. No life jackets on the boat either, or insurance.
Well....it's over and UK has voted to leave EU.
Overnight the UKP has dropped from US$1.49 to 1.34. the lowest since 1985.
The rate for IDR is hovering around 18,000...lucky I sold most of my sterling a couple of weeks ago at 20,000.
Expats on UK pensions in sterling, like myself, will have...
The family and I are planning a trip to Jakarta and back to Bali next month. We are driving because there are a few places that we must go in the middle of the trip that can only be done via car (no trains or planes) and since we have our own car, why rent?
Any words of...
You don't often hear of shark attacks in Bali. Here's one I just came across:
San Diego surfer shares story of shark attack in Bali | FOX5 San Diego - San Diego News, Weather, Traffic and Sports | KSWB
Also, this involves a concept I'm not 100% comfortable with but haven't thought about it...

Everyone tells me that is just kids, but it seems like a lot of people in our surrounding...
Someone was asking me about a "temporary working visa". Has anyone heard of this before?
I have heard of DJs getting some kind of visa, but never really knew the details.
This is the email they received from their agent:
The person wants to teach yoga in Bali.
Over the years I've had to listen time and again to some supercilious asshole know-it-alls (other than me) telling us all how generally stupid, illegal and unenforceable the favored "nominee" land purchase agreement is.
I would love to hear their explanation of this case...
Hello there Bali-people!
My wife and I will be moving to a villa in Ubud for a year starting in July and with the start of the baseball season in the US I was wondering if any of you know if it is possible to get any US sports (specifically the San Francisco Giants) in any manner, way, or...
As we are thinking of coming to Bali for 6-8 years we were wondering about the social life.....life after you come down from the excitement of actually realizing the dream.
Is there is a club or bunch of people that do regular scooter/bike runs around Bali or Island Hopping as we've read...

Anyone know or have experience of transferring beneficial ownership of property (land or land + buildings) between Bule?
My logic tells me that whilst the Nominee and Bule agreements have to be unwound, there is no transfer of true ownership (the Indonesian),
no notification to...
