    Beat The Traffic and avoid playing weekend

    by kenari Written Sep 3, 2006

    Kids on courses selling used golf balls they retrieve from us duffers. Sometimes they even "find" our balls in the rough for sale back to us. Not good! This is a nuisance; however, some courses do not allow it or they have it organized so that it is not a problem.
    Some courses are very crowded on Saturday mornings. You should be aware that it could take up 5.5 hrs to play 18 holes on those busy days.
    Some courses are buggy on track courses; some are buggy on courses. People who cannot handle walking distances in the tropical heat and high humidity should use the buggy on courses.
    Heat stroke is a real possibility, so drink lots of liquids out on the course, and don't forget your sunscreen.

    Unique Suggestions: just stayed at Bogor or along Bogor to Puncak pass to beat the traffic and save time

    Fun Alternatives: Get out from the the hotel as early as 5am if you want to play 36 hole in bogor .because at 6pm ,you can't see the ball anymore....

  • ARMY

    by Aang Written Nov 5, 2002

    THE ARMY? The top generals are all trained by the USA. The army makes most of its money from running various businesses, which are said to include protection rackets, drugs, gambling and prostitution.

    Allegedly the various bomb outrages are linked to the army.

    The army allegedly control various militias. Certain generals are allegedly the secret controllers of Laskar Jihad. Allegedly the army tries to stir up religious strife in order to undermine democracy.

    Every village and hamlet will contain a soldier whose job it is to keep an eye on things. Every branch of government contains military or former military people. Allegedly the top officers are often unable to control their own troops.

    Avoid contact with the army and police if at all possible. I found that soldiers were often threatening and intent on taking money from me. What stops the army from exercising total control is that they are thoroughly divided into factions.

    Unique Suggestions: Pretend to be anything other than Australian. The army hates Australians because Australians eventually halted the army's genocide in East Timor where over 1/3 of the population died.

    Fun Alternatives: Meet the locals.
