Sorry I cannot assist! Bule and resident Jakartans tend to have differing views on this subject!

Hi Smilehap, and welcome.
Here are a couple things I know.
Jakarta is now a fully "dollar-ized" city, so everything must be paid in dollars.

--Nasi Goreng from the Kaki Lima boys costs about USD$5 or $6.
--Bir Bintang $5 for a glass of draught beer, $10 for a big bottle.
--Girls cost about $200~$1,000 per day.
--Apartments generally sell for about $500,000, but your can rent for about $5,000 per month.

Those are main things you'll need, hope it helps.

depends on your looks and your taste: let me explain

Option one: You are a stunner who looks for a handsome bule
Be prepared to have to spend a lot on wining and dining the guy to be able get sole rights (to his body) in other words to let him root you for a period of time. You will also have to spend money on clothes for him and maybe housing (if he cannot stay with you) You will be looking at approximately 3 to 4 million per month.

Option two: You are a stunner who looks for an ugly bule. In this case you can leave your purse home and you will not even need to work because the bule will happily spend much of his money to wine and dine you, to treat you for holidays etc. He will even be prepared to pay your accomodation and other necessities etc. You can get by on spending less than 200.000 rp per month.

Option 3: You are an ugly girl looking for an ugly bule. IN this case your bf and you will probably go Dutch. Meaning you will share expenses, he will pay half you will pay half. You will have to pay for your own clothes and own accomodation etc. In this case you re looking at an average budget of 1 to 2 million rupia per month

Option 4: you are an ugly girl looking for a handsome bule. In this case you better go and look for a bloody well paid job!!!!! Cos if you wanna keep him you will basically have to drawn him in rupia's and expensive gifts. If you don't do it he will be gone faster than the wind. You will be looking at a budget here of at least 8 million per month to maybe as much as 11 million.

Option 5: you are an ugly or pretty or gorgeous girl looking for an indonesian guy. In this case it doesn't matter even if you are the prettiest gal in indo and he is the ugliest guy that ever lived, you will have to pay for everything. Luckily he is indonesian so his tastes will not be too expensive so here you look at a budget of 1.5 to 2.5 million per month

Hope this helps
