I'am 25 live in Australia and my girlfriend is 17, lives in Jakarta
she has all required documents, ID card, passport, birth cert., etc
1. I'am unsure if I should ask my sister/mother to sponsor her or be the sponsor myself?
(as age gap and they might worry she will not return)
I'm often asked this question and the usual answers are already well known (culture, nature, rice fields, dance, weather, etc) but I thought I'd attempt to show it from a different perspective, that of a 61 year old, balding, running quickly to fat, non-smoking, beer guzzling, motor scooter...

I’ve been living in Bali a while now
currently in my second year in a rented cottage at Legian.
I get back to Australia every 2-3 months for a couple of weeks working some of the festivals – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane Canberra etc.
Spend a bit of time in north Bali...
I had a strange experience yesterday while trying to go to a small Balinese waterpark. It's called Gumuh Sari Futsal & Waterpark.
Here's their Facebook page, they don't have a website (no surprise there):
A couple of my expat neighbors have expressed an opinion that the real estate market was fairly flat through out the Island, and wondered how many others would agree?
I guess this question was raised in my mind after recently visiting Ubud after being absent from that area for some time and...
I am looking for a Windows 10 laptop. I want to do some video editing so need something reasonably powerful with 8GB memory.
I have a Levono currently and pretty happy with it. I will probably buy it online so it needs to be available from a site like Bhinneka.Com: Toko Online Komputer, Gadget...
Due to the fact that we go to Raja Ampa (Sorong) and other destinations for diving, it looks like we have to pan to overstay our visas, me for four days, my wife for ten days. She already overstayed once for two days.
We'll be coming back from Singapore. Will they let us back in?
My daughters birthday tomorrow and my wife has a day off so I thought I might book a room in Southport for one night and take the girls to Seaworld. If I want anything half decent, I'll have to pay at least $500, just for the room. $500 for a very ordinary room with a couple of beds and no...
It is interesting the reaction in the Australian media when a terror attack is found in Australia itself. In Melbourne a planned attack was found yesterday and the police have "urged" people to go about their business. Seven arrested as police foil planned Christmas Day terror attack in...
Like the Title says, I'm new to this Forum. I'm an American citizen who will be retiring next year (2017). I plan on visiting Bali in the off season to see if it "works" for me, I have high hopes I can blend in. I appreciate all the help here on the Forum.

Indonesia's Constitutional Court considers criminalising adultery and gay sex - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
This was on Australian TV news channels last night.
I thought it was already illegal in Indonesia?
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.
Does anyone know where else I can try, by phone first. I don't know this end of the island much at...
By searching the archives I failed to come up with this specific topic. It seems that Indonesian citizens have been offered a tax amnesty on property acquired between 1985 and 2015 that they have not previously declared as taxable, and if they pay up by the end of September 2016 will only have...

This is the first time I'll be returning to Indonesia with a spouse sponsored kitas. My kitas is valid for 1 year, do I need to show a ticket out of the country before that date or is there no need for that with a kitas?
