Jakarta,'s 5th. largest city... in the world's 4th. largest nation...where is it? Never heard of it? Please click here

10 continuous hours by Boeing 747Most people are not aware that Indonesia is a major country of some 220-plus million people. It is the world's 4th. largest populated nation after China's 1.3 billion, India's 950 million, and the U.S.A.'s 265 million. It it is the world's largest – and youngest – populated nation with some 165 million youngsters under the age of 30 where only 8% are over the age of 60 years (national Bureau of statistics, August 2001, quoted in the English-language daily "The Jakarta Post", August 2001).

It is a vast, sprawling geographic area equivalent to an area stretching from the western tip of Europe to the Middle East. It covers a distance from London in England, through western and eastern Europe past Tehran in Iran to the borders of Egypt, which U.S. President Bill Clinton said is a strategic country because, among others, “85% of the world's commercial and world's navies in the Indian and Pacific Oceans from China, Taiwan, Japan to the Middle East and Europe and vice versa pass through Indonesian waters.” 

165 million are under the age of 30 yearsIt takes 7 hours to fly from Jakarta to Papua (Irian Jaya) in the east towards the center of Australia, (2 hours from Jakarta to the west to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, or 1 hour 45 minutes to Singapore both in the middle of Sumatra),and 4 hours from Jakarta to the west to the town of Sabang at the western tip of Sumatara as hundreds of thousands of domestic and international travellers will confirm. Think of sitting in a Boeing 747 jet for 10 hours continuous flight, that's equivalent to flying through Indonesia's vast territories.

The area is so huge, that most Indonesians themselves do not know and are not aware of the many events.. both the good and bad ones.. that happen in the other parts of the country. To both nationals and international travellers, the publicity given by some governments that travel in Indonesia should not be included because of certain events, are ridiculous as these international visitors experienced themselves. It is like saying do not travel to the U.S.A. because there are riots in Los Angeles. New Yorkers probably are not even aware that riots did take place in L.A. if not for instantaneous television coverage. It is also just as ridiculous to tell people: Do not travel to France because there are riots in Belgium. Besides, Indonesia's total flying distance is nearly twice the total flying distance of the U.S.A.-- and several times the total area of Western Europe! The international rockstars, like Westlife, the Corrs, the Rollingstone rockstar who married in Bali, international filmstars,international music and jazz festivals (e.g. JakJazz) and the hundreds of international exhibitions, that take place in Indonesia obviously do not believe in foreign government propaganda. Readers of this webpage should not believe in these negative propaganda either. The country is too big – think of the country as the equivalent distance from London to Tehran in Iran – BIG by any standards to be pegged like most other countries.

Jakarta, its capital city, is the size of many small countries.. and just as modern as any of the world's metropolitans with many intelligent skyscrappers (regulating lighting, air conditioning etc. without any manual intervention, e.g. BNI, G.E. [General Electric] Building, etc.) and S.E. Asia's largest shopping complexes (Mangga Dua, Anggrek Mall & some 80 other malls). It is, according to the United Nation's population statistics, one of the world's five largest cities, after Mexicocity's 35 million, Shanghai and other Chinese metropolitans. At night, according to the Jakarta DKI City government surveys in 1997 and 1998, its population is 12 million; during the day it grows to 19 to 20 million people who travel to the city from the dozens of outlying satellite towns and leave, clogging Jakarta's internal city toll roads from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. at night. It takes some 60 minutes to circle through Jakarta's circular internal toll road on concrete stilts over buildings, factories, and populated areas at a constant speed of 85-90 km (50-55 miles) an hour to arrive at the same point (visualize travelling through Hong Kong's populated areas, or London's Oxford Street and Hampstead Heath encircled by a toll road on conrete stilts). It's not like travelling through London's or Washington, D.C.'s circular roads where most of it consist of wooded and scaterred homes. Jakarta is now taking bids for the "second 'outer' ring road" covering its suburbs and satellite towns, somewhat like London's and Washingto DC's ring roads.

Indonesia's Rupiah (rupee-aah) currency is where the dollar goes a long, long way, said movie star Brooke Shields recounting the story when she with her tennis champion husband, Agassi, played with the monkeys in Bali to U.S. television funny man, Jay Leno in September, 2001.

spices came from this area over 2000 years agoIndonesians have always kept a very low profile about their country (a characteristic of the Javanese, descendants of the million year old "Java Man", one of man's oldest species, who dominate the nation), while countries 1/10 to 1/20th. the size get more recognition because of better and sustained self-promotion. Some facts:

 Indonesia is a huge country geographically and population wise

The different countries which the vast Indonesian territories cover

A 25-year Economic Performance Growth averaging 6% to 8% annually
Indonesia's 220 million-plus people are blessed with vast natural resources, and with the exception of disturbances like El Nigno and the 19982001 Asian economic crisis, its people had a 25-year past performance record of economic growth, the last 10 years averaging 6% to 8% annually.

For the expatriate community, Indonesia has provided more than 42 international schools operating across the country. Details of some of them are below.

Before the 1998-01 Indonesian Asian economic crises, Indonesia was one of world's fastest growing areas. To run and then transform it into one of Asia's economic tigers is akin to a miracle because of the Indonesia's 582 different languages and nearly as many cultures reflected in its national emblem "Unity In Diversity" (similar in meaning to the U.S.' national motto "E Pluribus Umum").

Sunset in Losari Beach, SulawesiThe country was facing an economic meltdown and its currency was worth only 20% of its previous value towards the U.S. dollar (specifically during January through October 1998) which in turn also affected locally-produced products a product that used to cost 1 now would cost 5 in local currency terms while the salary levels remained at 100. (Right photo sunset in Losari Beach, South Sulawesi, under the Philippines). This in turn created the increasing number of unemployed of up to 20 million people (from a total of about 90 million) because businesses were also affected. However, the resiliency, the inherent wealth of the nation, the large market potential of 220 million people making it the 4th. largest population nation in the world and its past decades long growth performance cannot be discounted and should provide for a light at the end of the tunnel in coming months and years ahead.

The nation owns vast riches of all types of natural resources, from aluminum to zinc, and in vast quantities, because of the huge geographical area. Its 220 million grass roots folks are blessed with a tropical climate, fertile vegetation and if not for weather disturbances, should not have problems developing their agricultural capabilities and feeding themselves. It has done so in the past but was disrupted by the Asian economic crisis.

A positive past performance particularly involving decades provides for confidence to be able to repeat a similar performance, in spite of ongoing 1999 difficulties.

Indonesians still have the potential of making their country one of the major economic powers of the world–in spite of the Asian economic and financial crisis of 1998 and the expected global recession of 1999.

Indonesia should prepare for future economic upheavals
To reach this goal, Indonesia must be better prepared for the future and have the necessary infrastructures like roads, power and communications, the absence of corruption and monopolies government or otherwise, transparency in the awards of licenses and government contracts, and upholding the rule of law -- not as past practices the benefits of the law work only for those who have the funds to buy their way, irrespective of whether one is right, or wrong. Indonesians of all walks of life hope the present Habibie and future government administration will make these their major efforts and goals.

The common people are concerned only with feeding their family, to have a good job, and do not really care who is the president or leader of their nation. This has been expressed in the U.S.A. towards U.S. President Bill Clinton, and to leaders in Japan, in Korea, in Thailand, and in Indonesia. All are only concerned on how well their leaders do their job of keeping the ordinary people's lives stable, and predictable.

Government should give opportunities for everyone
This grass roots community should be given the opportunity to better themselves through trade of their home grown commodities and to market their own agriculture produce and their home industries among themselves, with the other towns and cities throughout Indonesia, and thereafter to the international communities. This then provides for a strengthening of their local economies, in turn provide for better living conditions, and improved conditions provide for more types of businesses to grow and thrive. Because of the availability of this basic telephone communications service, the country will enhance its own communities by self-effort and self-determination.

This self-capability will provide for resilience against an economic downturn because the majority of the population can always fall back on its own farmland and its own self-sufficient agriculture production should financial crises hit the country now or in the future.

Had the government implemented this "national grass roots" growth program in 1988, the economic upheavals experienced by Indonesia ten years later in 1998 would not be as damaging to the common people as it is now.

Had the common people be given the opportunity for self-growth through the availability of affordable and available communications services which act as a catalyst to all types of economic and administrative activities, the negative impact of the Asian crises and expected global recession in 1999 would lessen the sufferings of the common people, and therefore lessen the political upheavals which Indonesia was recently and now being subjected to would not negatively affect all businesses.

Indonesia like any large country is not perfect
Indonesia, like any huge country,  is not perfect—it's more difficult to govern than most because of its vast geographical area separated by oceans and the diversity of its cultures, religions, languages and ways of doing things—and is recovering from S.E. Asian monetary woes.

As a demonstration of support for its economic future, its 220 million-plus market potential, and what it can give in return to the global economy, IMF Managing Director Michel Camdessus in a press briefing in Washington, D.C. said on October 31st., 1997, stated bilateral donors—Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and the U.S.A. in addition to the IMF, the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, intend to correct "the excessive depreciation of the Rupiah, and they would act again if needed".

In addition, he stated, Indonesia is "to use its own substantial external assets"*  (The "substantial external assets" referred to are multi-billion gold bullion assets kept in major foreign banks and foreign central banks owned by Indonesia.). For additional information to these assets, please refer to articles written by Lena Soares, “Listen to East-Timor”, article no. 14.
*Quoted from the IMF managing director in press briefings and other agency reports dated 31st. October, 1st. November, and 10th. November, 1997.

and How is that going to be achieved? by Lena Soares
In spite of the economic crisis which all Asian countries are facing, international business and an escalation of diplomatic ties have spurred the growth of 42 international schools throughout the country. The establishment of these schools is based on a 1975 agreement by the Ministry of Education & Culture, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Finance.

To oversee the development and operations of the school, the government has set up a team comprising of the Ministry of Education & Culture, Ministry of Manpower, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Finance.

There are 14 in Jakarta, 9 in West Java, 3 in East Java and 3 in Irian Jaya. Some of the 27 provinces have one international school each in Aceh, Bali, Riau, South Sulawesi, West Kalimantan and Jogjakarta. There are also special international schools which cater to citizens of India, Korea, Singapore, Japan, Australia, Germany, Britain and other countries. These schools currently have 10,829 students, 895 foreign teachers and 181 local teachers.

They fall into 3 categories: (a) diplomatic schools, (b) mixed diplomatic & international schools and (c) international schools. Diplomatic schools by a country’s embassy and its students are children of diplomats and its citizens. Mixed diplomatic and international schools are attended by children from a number of countries and are supported by the embassies and parents of the students, and international schools are established by foundations to accommodate expatriate children whose parents are working for companies in Indonesia.

“ brought tears in my eyes.. ” I am so sorry about the loss of your son Cyrus. I have read the story that you wrote in the page.

What a bereaved Mom & Dad have to say ...
“ ..losing a child is far more devastating.. ” Losing an offspring like our 25 year old, Cyrus, is a devastation NO parent will ever know, unless ONE EXPERIENCES it. It is far more devastating than losing one's own parents and brothers and sisters – which we had experienced and had gone through several times. More so when this child was a living doll, then no longer a child, became an adult and then a friend, a trusted buddy who can instead give advice, and whom we can share experiences with . On Jan. 28, 1999 when he passed away, and 2½ years later on Aug. 7th. 2001, our voices still break up and tears welled up in his mother's eyes , when a friend who did not know Cyrus was no longer with us, asked “...and how is Cyrus..?” || The Do's and Don'ts in facing bereaved parents – from the bereaved's perspectives

    WebRing is the first, largest, and fastest-growing service of its kind on the Internet, providing one of the easiest ways for visitors to navigate the Web.In each of its tens of thousands of Rings, Member web sites have banded together to form their sites into linked circles. Their purpose:  to allow more visitors to reach them quickly and easily. An extraordinary system servicing three primary World Wide Web groups: Visitors, Member sites and advertiser-merchants, WebRing remains entirely open and free of charge to both Visitors and Members. As a leading online navigation aid, WebRing is experiencing a growth rate of over 10% monthly. Daily page requests from visitors exceed 2,000,000; Member sites total over 1,300,000; Rings total over 80,000. The WebRing system can support a nearly unlimited number of separate and distinct Rings across the Internet. This unique structure allows the creation and evolution of tens of thousands of different "web communities." Through navigation links found most often at the bottom of Member pages, Visitors can travel all or any of the sites in a Ring. They can move through a Ring in either direction, go to the next or previous site, or list the next five sites in the Ring. They can jump to a random site in the Ring, or survey all the sites that make up the Ring. The quickest way to find a Ring of interest is to visit WebRing's online Directory, or use RingSearch to search for Rings across the entire system, then refine your search by searching within a Ring.

    MIDI, or musical instrument digital interface, is a standard used by sound-card makers and musical instrument manufacturers to let various electronic instruments and sound processors talk to each other. Because MIDI sound samples and synthesis algorithms are stored on the local system (either in your sound card, the PC's processor, or in an external MIDI module), all that needs to be sent over the wire is a series of signals that say what note to play when. For that reason, extremely small MIDI files (less than 5K) can still deliver several minutes of music. A 3 minute MP3sound carries a size of some 2.7 MB, while the equivalent 3 minute MIDI file is about 1/100 its size (27K). MIDI notes and sound effects are usually limited to the sounds in the standard General MIDI set. General MIDI is a fairly extensive set, including drums, woodwinds, strings, and some sound effects, but it's not the same as recording your own sounds or your voice which you can with MP3. Also, MIDI quality depends almost exclusively on the sound system used for playback. A PC with an el cheapo sound card using weak FM synthesis technology could make even a brilliant MIDI arrangement sound like a $15 electronic keyboard, whereas an expensive wavetable synthesis sound system could produce awe-inspiring MIDItones. For quicker down loading, MIDI files are used here.
