    Hey All,

    Just thought I'd post instead of just lurking all of the time haha..

    I'll be in Jakarta for 6 weeks shortly and then possibly full time a few months after that. Have many questions I want to ask and will when it comes closer to time if I cant find what I'm looking for on here already :)

    Hi Dave and welcome....interesting avatar.
    I hope you aren't trolling for blood donators here.
    Excepting our lovely and giving Bad _Azz you will find we are very stingy on giving away anything free and, especially us Canadians, who only give a shot to bears...like a magnum bullet to the skull before they rip us apart!
    J/K... welcome aboard...:thumb:

    Hey Willy and Davita,

    Footy or Rugby? League but I don't really watch as more into motorsports

    XXXX or VB? Qlder so it would be XXXX but I prefer Asahi, soon to be Bintang I'm guess lol (providing the better half doesn't get too cranky :rolleyes:)

    Holden or Ford? Ford since I wasn't dropped at birth :rofl:

    And Drop Bears are a serious matter Davita :behindsofa:

    I take it that you didn't see the rule that says, Australians only welcome on this forum if they barrack for Richmond. And you cant' just fake it by just saying you do. You have to supply a video singing the Richmond club song.

    That's very funny and correct...gives a great feeling of deja vu!
    Another is listening to the noise from all the mosques any evening, when drunk, and thinking it's rap music...:lalala:

    Not for work per say, just to be with my partner. we have things on the go already so not an issue :)

    Just sad I'll be selling the Harley from what I can see too expensive for me to bring it over..

    Well every cloud does have a silver lining, after all.

    Taking a Harley to Indo is easy. Sending it back out is more difficult :doh:

    It's more the import taxes, not that I've found a set amount yet though :/ so it's not a done deal yet

    The only league I watch is State of Origin. Go the Maroons!

    XXXX is a great beer, Bintang not a bad alternative, Heineken is horrible.

    Holden? Meh...... up to you.
