there's a new kid in street ... "Equal Park" bar, located in one of the Hotel Ratu rukos (next door to where the old Okusi office used to be).

the "opening soon" on the banner is rather concerning: Obama's Bar down the other end of the street has been "opening soon" for quite a while now...


right opposite them, Jaksa Pool has just reopened after undergoing renovations.

Thanks. That was a message from Jaksa's Ambassador for Tourism.

Hmm.. Never been to jaksa before.. What kind of pubs are them? Are they only regular drinking pubs full of bule?

'bars' in jaksa are pretty basic. they tend to attract low-life foreigners (eg, english teachers, backpackers, axe murderers). they aint fancy, but they're cheap.

cheap alcohol is lame. You'd rather drink water. I heard Jaksa's bars provide nasi padang too

expats are expats. i'm a permanent resident. there is a large psychological distance between an expat and a resident.

When did De Niro play an axe murderer? Jack Nicholson, perhaps.

you know, the only reason there is reggae music at Equal at the moment is because of the presence of the Red Combi van and its way cool indonesian occupants.

they used to park it outside the now-closed surf shop next to the now-closed Djody MM. they used to chat to the tourists, giving them an Authentic Indonesian Experience™.

now they have started parking the van outside Equal, bringing their music with them. i don't think they will be a permanent fixture.

There never was a Seaman Stains in Captain Pugwash (or Roger the cabin boy or Master Bates). That's an urban myth.
