    3Issue #06 - 3 May 2010 - BuGils bi-Weekly

    I have nothing against Indians, but Ive always wondered why they wobble their heads so often.

    In our bars we sell Indian food, so we have a lot of Indian customers. I enjoy observing the wobble an Indian makes from the moment they order, till the moment they pay their bill. I want to understand it, but I cannot. In the process of choosing something from the menu, an Indian couple will normally shake their heads rather softly, and often to one side, with small intervals. Once they come closer to a choice, the couple makes clear to each other what they want to order, the wobbling increases to both left and right. Once they eat, they keep their heads rather steady, even though I think that a bit of wobbling might actually help to bring the food down to their stomach a bit faster. But who am I tell them that? Once the food is nished, and they fall back in their chairs, their heads still balance loosely and much more relaxed above the rest of their body. It isnt until they receive the bill -my favor-ite part, when the most extensive wobbling occurs. There is often a lot


    of pointing and arguing over the bill with the waitresses, but in the end their wobbling heads will go down in the purse and the raised voice will go down with it and decreases to a mumbling sound. I shouldnt watch these scenes anymore, as I noticed that I started shaking my own heavy head as well from time to time Could it be infectious?

    A few months ago I landed in Aber-deen. My rst time ever in Scotland and the rst Scot I met was an Indian. It was the money changer at the airport. You better change here! Best price in town and I give your money back if you can nd a better deal, the Indian Scotsman said. This tiny Indian fellow would never have lasted this long between all the huge Scotsmen, if he wasnt honest, I thought, so I changed all the Euros I had. You guarantee the best exchange rate? And you are open every day? I asked to be sure. He didnt say anything, but he nodded yes. When he nodded yes again, and again, I got a bit suspicious, but I had the pounds already in my hand. The taxi driver from the airport told me I was robbed. It was a terrible rate. A few days later, when I returned to the airport hungry for revenge, the Indian money changer was closed. Well, actually he was in his little box, but he ignored my calls to open up. Im sure he heard me. It was only until I kept a handful of pounds up in the air when he looked in my direc-tion. But only from the corners of his eyes. He did not smile, he did not talk, he just looked up that little bit, was motionless for 3 seconds, then wobbled his head for 3 seconds and turned around again to continue counting the money in his drawer. I felt like a fool. I survived 20 years of doing business in Indonesia, but got robbed after 10 minutes in Scot-land.

    I wonder if there is a border is between wobblers and non-wobblers, or if the wobbling just fades away in border areas And

    what happens when a wobbler marries with a non-wobbler? Will the parents accept it? Their daughters will probably get warnings like, You can go out with him, but only when your head stays rm on your romp! You dont give a kick, you hear me? And the boys parents are not too happy as well, but they know it will be alright, as wobbling is infectious and in the long run the girls head will loosen up. So the wobblers are winning terrain, that is for sure. The other day in Eastern Promise, I saw one of the waitresses doing it, while writing down an order from an Indian with a turban. I called the waitress to me, and asked why she also wobbled her head while taking the order, I warned it her it could annoy the customer! She said it was not. In general tips are higher when I hobble wobble my head a bit, she explained. And while I looked at her in bewilderment, there were a few seconds of silence between us. Then she just did a quick head wobble, smiled at me and returned to take another order.

    Next time I need to change money in Aberdeen, I bring her with me


    Postscript:The BuGils management was

    seriously worried that the content of this editorial could oend our Indian customers. However, after consulting

    a few of our best Indian customers, they independently voted that the story should be published. At rst,

    they were a bit hesitant (shaking their heads without saying anything), but

    when we oered a discount on the curries, it was a conrmed nod.

  • Ex-SAS Commander Tipped As Australias Next Envoy To Indonesia

    source : blog.indahnesia.comFemale tourist would have beneted from their activities. The chief of security of Kuta Beach, one of the most popular beaches on the island, has said this Tuesday.

    The man are being interrogated and when it is proven that they are indeed involved in illegal business, they will be handed over to the police, said I Gusti Ngurah Tresna. The chocolate brown, muscled man would often approach foreign female tourists an care about them for the time they are on the island. The men would then get paid by the women for their services and possibly sex.

    Reason for their arrest is the recently released documentary Cowbows in Paradise from Amit Virmani, that was

    KUTA - At least 28 man were arrested because they would have oered themselves as gigolo on the Indonesian resort island of Bali.

    Gigolos Arrested After Video Release

    released on the South Korea lm festival last week. Pieces of the movie about gigolo's and their female 'victims' on Bali are a true hit on the internet at the moment. According to Tresna, the authorities do not want their sweet image of Bali to be disturbed by images of gigolo's.

    The Indian director, who grew up in Indonesia, names the phenomenon of 'Kuta Cowboys' something that has been around for ages and is also a big public secret. He just wants to show the human side of these gigolo's with his movie. The director has already received a lot of hate-mail from people that say he made an anti-Indonesian movie. The lm has not yet been ocially released in Indonesia, but internet is never far away.

    Source : www.theaustralian.com.auAustralian prime Minister Kevin Rudd's national security adviser, former SAS commander Duncan Lewis, is the front-runner to become Australia's next ambassador to Jakarta. Diplomatic sources in Canberra and Jakarta told The Australian yesterday that the Indonesian-speaking Mr Lewis was in line to replace the current ambassador, Bill Farmer, whose term is about to expire.

    The Department of Foreign Aairs and Trade would neither conrm nor deny the appointment. A spokesman for the Prime Minister referred queries to Foreign Minister Stephen Smith's sta, who also declined to conrm or deny the claims. But the appointment, if it goes ahead, would be very signicant. Mr Lewis, 54, who has previously served as defence attache in Jakarta and retired from the army as a major-general, is a high-prole special forces ocer and intelligence expert. And he had a "formi-dable" knowledge of Indonesia, said a


    national security expert and former long-term Jakarta resident. "More broadly he is across a range of high-level security issues on the agenda between Canberra and Jakarta - terror-ism, police and military co-operation, people-smuggling, border control and illegal shing," he said.

    Mr Lewis retired from the army in 2005 and was recruited by former prime minister John Howard, and appointed rst assistant secretary of the national security division in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet. In December 2008, he was appointed as national security adviser to the Rudd government.

    A seasoned crisis manager, Mr Lewis was also the commander of Australian troops in East Timor after the departure of then major general Peter Cosgrove - at a time of high tension along the border after the 1999 Australian-led Interfet deployment.

  • Six Million Indonesian Women Now Working Abroad; Families Struggle



    Source : IRIN, The Jakarta GlobeThe number of women leaving Indone-sia, legally or illegally, has been steadily climbing over the past decade, accord-ing to the National Authority for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Overseas Workers.

    An estimated six million Indonesian woman some 90 percent of all Indonesian migrant labourers are now working overseas, according to the authority.

    Most go to the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, Jordon and Qatar, with the rest are in Asia Pacic, including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan.

    Many Indonesian villages are left with a shortage of women. Men, such as Edin in Cimanggu village, in a rural farming community on Java Island, sometimes assume the role of a single parent for years at a time.

    Its very dicult. I have to be very patient to raise them. The grandparents cannot take care of them, so its only me, said Edin, who has two teenagers.

    His wife worked in Saudi Arabia for almost seven years, enabling the couple to pay school fees and buy a motorcycle.

    But they still cannot aord their own land or a house, he said.

    His wife returns in six months from what he hopes will be her last trip. It is not worth it, I dont want her to go again, he said.

    While their wives are away, many Indonesia men have been left to take care of their children alone.

    According to the World Bank, the regis-tered remittances Indonesian migrant workers send home account for more than US$6 billion annually, comprising the second-highest source of income after oil and gas. But this contribution comes at a signicant cost to women and their families.

    Most of the women are in debt because of placement fees and travel costs they have to pay the [employment] agents. It sometimes takes them the rst 16 months to pay the agents back, said Yoko Doi, a specialist in migrant labour at the World Bank in Jakarta. They also lack nancial planning.

    For many, the desperately sought-after prosperity for which they sacriced so much remains elusive.

    Nine-year-old Zikiris mother has been

    working for more than two years in Saudi Arabia and left when his sister was still a baby. She has only sent money home once.

    His father was supposed to take care of him, but he could not do it. The kids were dirty and did not get enough food, so we brought them here, said Ai Syam-siyah, Zikiris aunt.

    Some migrant workers build big houses, but cannot aord the maintenance and are forced to go back to work abroad. But most of the money is spent on daily costs for schooling, food and transporta-tion.

    Wages abroad are low and the workload sometimes involves looking after entire families alone without holidays.

    Women make the most in Hong Kong, earning almost $500 per month, while in Malaysia, they make less then $150, according to Migrant Care, an Indone-sian NGO.

    But back home they make a fraction of that amount, and unemployment and poverty are rife.

    The stories about the appalling condi-tions experienced by migrant workers are painful. Some women sleep in cupboards, or have no private space at all. Food is poor and insucient. They often work extremely long hours and are the rst to get up and the last to go to bed. An estimated 20 percent come back abused, raped, or without being paid, according to Migrant Care.

    But for the women of Cimanggu, such horror stories do not deter women from leaving home.

    I was worried sick. If I was rich, I would not have let her go, but I could not even send her to school. She sacriced herself for a better economic situation, said Eneh, whose 18-year-old daughter went to Saudi Arabia. After two years of hard work there, her daughter returned with only $120.

    Source : Yessar Rosendar, the Jakarta GlobeThe shine is wearing o of Indonesia as an investment destination for interna-tional energy companies, despite the global energy rush and the countrys massive reserves of oil and natural gas, according to a survey released by Price-waterhouseCoopers on Thursday.

    According to PWC, executives from oil and gas companies cited rising concerns about uncertainty over cost-recovery legislation, corruption, interference by government agencies, the sanctity of contracts and the general regulatory structure of the upstream and down-stream oil and gas industry. The execu-tives said they were increasingly skepti-cal about the chances for positive change in these ve areas in the near term, according to PWC.

    Indonesia still regarded as attractive. However, the shine seems to be wearing o, said William Deertz, lead technical adviser for energy, utilities and mining practices at PWC Indonesia. There is a shift of sentiment, survey participants seems less optimistic in near term improvement, which is not good for investment.

    PWC surveyed 317 executives from 76 foreign and domestic oil and gas companies. The ndings come at a time when the government is struggling to nd ways to reverse the gradual decline in national oil production.

    Once a member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, Indone-sia is now a net importer of crude, and is struggling to reverse steadily declining output, targeted this year at 965,000 barrels a day.

    The government provided some measure of relief and certainty to inves-tors this week when it announced it would not proceed with a plan to limit the amount of expenses oil and gas companies could claim under the cost-recovery process.

    The unsettled regulation and the issue of limits has been a major concern for investors.

    Cost-recovery that changed midway is unacceptable, Deertz said.

    Ron Aston, president of the Indonesian

    Petroleum Association, which repre-sents almost all oil and gas producers in the country, said Indonesia was still attractive as long as the investment climate remained positive. Indonesia still has basins that contain large reserves, he said.

    The fundamental thing for the oil and gas industry across the world is geologi-cal prospectivity, so its certainly attrac-tive, Aston said.

    However, the government needed to take steps to make the sector more attractive to international investors, he said.

    Over the next few years energy compa-nies are set to invest around $1 billion to explore the blocks around the Makassar Strait, even though it was uncertain whether oil was in the area, Aston said, adding that this highlighted the high level of risk involved.

    Its a staggering fact that they invest billions of dollars just to see if some-thing is there.

    The government should complete the cost-recovery regulation very soon, because it will enhance production activities in oil and gas, he said.

    There is a misconception. Cost recovery is not a reimbursement, its government investment so that production can increase, Aston added.

    Edy Hermantoro, director of upstream oil and gas at the Energy Ministry, said Indonesia still has enormous oil and gas potential. According to ministry data, in January 2009 the country had potential oil reserves of 3,695.39 million barrels of oil and proven reserves of 4.303.1 million barrels of oil.

    International oil and gas executives have growing reservations about investing in Indonesia, according to a survey by PWC. (Antara Photo)

    A little male-bashing..for fun.

    I have always wanted to put myself in the shoes of the girls that work behind the bar at Bugils.obviously depending on what kind of shoes they have on. But only recently have I been privy to seeing what these girls go through.

    I have been in and out of Bugils for a while, but only recently am I getting the hang of how it works here in Bali. If a woman is single (attractive is not a require-ment), just single and a little bit of personality and brains she has a good chance at Bugils Bali of meeting a man. What kind of manwell that isnt guaranteed but men that will compliment you and treat you well. They will tell you that you have nice legseven though you have had the same legs in 5 other countries and no one has said a word, they will touch your lower back and move to your backside, even though in 5 other countries you would get slapped for that behavior. Men look at your cleavagewhich I assure you has never happened to me due to a lack thereof. If you are really lucky you may get a guy who will even nibble your ear or try to touch your breast at the bar!

    Bugils is a great bar with great fun people. Most of these great, fun people are menwhich we like very much! And a fair share of the men are gentlemen, mar-ried and unmarried and treat women with the utmost respect. For some othersthere are times when I really do wonder if they realize what they look like from the other side of the bar.

    And for your lonely single girls out there, this is an invitation for you to come and meet the charming and not so charming at Bugils Bali, as I do believe in sharing the wealth!

    Oldies but goodies:

    Man: Your face must turn a few headsWoman: And your face must turn a few stom-achs.

    Man: Haven't I seen you some place before?Woman: Yes. That's why I don't go there anymore

    Man: Hey baby, what's your sign?Woman: Do not enter.

    Man: I think I could make you very happy.Woman: Why? Are you leaving?

    Man: I would go to the end of the world for you. Woman: Yes, but would you stay there
