As I have a baby on the way I decided it's time to knuckle down and start learning the local lingo. Disappointed with the books available in Indonesia, a generous JakChat member gave me a book and said I could copy it.

Somehow I imagined i would get back a bunch of hard to read photocopies on A4 paper that would fall all over the place. Imagine my surprise when I picked up the copy to find it fully bound with glossy cover, looking exactly like the real thing!

I am just amazed at what a great job they have done! Good work Indonesian snappy!

It's one of the truly great things about Indonesia, but who knows how long it can last.
