this whole thing about paying Rp500,000,000 for an indonesian wife came from the chief justice of the highest court in the land ... who is currently under investigation for accepting bribes from none other than soeharto's half-brother.

the Rp500million proposal came from one of Indonesia's finest minds.

but don't worry ... it'll never take off. for less than USD100 return, the indonesian lady can fly to singapore, get hitched to her bule, then return a married woman.
