Can I ask: How do Inodnesian girls, even the poorest of them, manage to to look clean, refreshed and smart all day long.

I see them on the back of a motorbike in dirty dusty roads, I see them walking in hot humid streets, In rusty buses and Bejays. But they always look a million dollars.

What is the secret?

Smart has more than one meaning in English! When you use "smart" in this context it means looking "elegant" or stylish. as in "thats a smart dress you are wearing".

It can also mean clever - and I know a lot of clever Indo girls. As in "Lina is a smart girl - she got her MBA at Harvard".

It can also mean "hurt" - as in "I hit my finger with a hammer and it "smarts".

Or maybe you know this and you are just being "smart" with me.....

secret? it's about energy conservation essentially. indonesians have evolved over billions of years to move very, very slowly so as to conserve as much energy as possible, thus they hardly ever break out into a sweat.

dearest Diyu,

I dont employ my brain too hard when responding that question..it's a friday anyway(quoted the query : 'even the poorer, pls make contemplation, expat earn money in ndo, pls pay respect for local persons !!!)
did ur mom never tell so ???

have u ever read local ( i mean indo) newspaper??
How we can not be classified smart? if the average Income of indo people only a couples USD ? and the fuel's price always hike during recent 2 years???
how come we meet our daily needs??? We have to smart and be creative..especially for some Civil servant who works for government..
not like in ur --or ny developed country-- we dont have any policy about range of salary..or income.
even to be smart, we have to enter a private school, like my father did, register us to private catholic school --even we're muslim-- and dig his pocket deeply

There is a big difference between clever and smart, I,ll give you an example.... In Jakarta there are many ayam which many bules like to share their company. Now in many cases these bules may have a wife,To be able to concoct an alibi and enjoy the wares of these ayams so,s the little wife does not find out one has to be very clever, But to do so and possibly jepodise a marrage is not smart, BUT ONE MUST DO WHAT ONE MUST DO

The questionm is - how do they look cool and refreshed, with clean uncreased clothes?

In fact forget the question. Likke everything else its just too bloody hard to get through the fog!!!!!!!!!

Maybe it's all to do with the sharpness of the crease they are able to iron into pairs of jeans which prevents the rest of their clothes becoming creased??

nah. you're all wrong. it's this:

1. asians don't sweat as much as smelly westerners, so it takes longer for them to look hot and frazzled.

2. clothing is very cheap here, and not a lot of it is required, so even quite poor people can be reasonably dressed in relatively new clothes.

3. asians are -- generally speaking -- not slobs, like too many westerners.

This boke or blokette, Whatever, has hit the nail on the head. For the Indonesians in here this means he is right

English like:

"you very handsome Meeeeesta"

"you got missus Meeeeeesta"

"We Boom Boom OK"

(A romantic novel in 3 lines. Jane Austen never achieved that....)

I always ask the same question to myself.. Why indo gurls always look so attractive all the time? I guess it has nothing to do with sweat production... It's because they are just beautiful! in that case, whether they are sweaty, dirty, dusty or even salty are irrelevant.

In Indonesia we call it "Cinta Monnyet" cos fall in love in every 20 minutes :p
Cinta= Love
Monyet= Monkey
so Cinta Monyet mean is = Monkey's Love
and that mean is : you are Monkey! LOL :-)
