Hi everyone,
Im a displaced Indonesian living in Europe and has been living here for quite a while, so my Indonesian is terrible. An English speaking Indonesian forum therefore suits me perfectly. Am going to be travelling to Indonesia in January so hopefully I will get some good tips from this forum about what's happening down there.
Nice to "meet" you all smile

Im only going to Indonesia on holidays for two months. Not to live there permanently. Hope to reach some distant islands. Far, far away from the chaos rule of Jakarta. How I became displaced???
Not my decision really, just ended up here in Norway (of all places in the world)...

Does this answer your questions, cynical old men??? wink

Actually, the great majority of Acenese refugees have settled in Sweeden, not Norway. Oslo the capital of Sweeden, according to many. But what's the difference really, right. Blond here, there and everywhere... wink

True, Tasmanians seem like a completely different breed of people. Specially if you're used to sydneyians...
Have fun in Copenhagen, its nice there.

I was in Kristiansand on the southern coast of Norway about three months back for a wedding. Never did find out if they are "blond here there and everywhere". The only two Swedes I have knobbed -- previously -- were both dark haired, to my eternal shame. I have to say though that yes, blonds abound. Even the priestess marrying off my brother to a blond was blond. Blond and hot. The whole left side of the church also was blond. Couldn't believe it.

I have to say though that Norway seems a bit backward and boring and the girls a little conservative. Conservative and provincial. I mean Kristiansand's top nightclub was belting out John Bon Jovi anthems at one in the morning. No trance or Es to be seen anywhere. I can't score if I can't dance.
