    An Aussie tourist is surrounded by kids

    If you are a white foreigner (locally known as bule) you tend to get stared at in places where few white foreigners go, but overall, Indonesians stand back and look, rather than gather around you. Those who do come right up to you are usually kids. The other habit which altogether ordinary to Indonesians is touching between those of the same gander.

    “Hello Mister” Fatigue

    by adriansyah Written Dec 22, 2007

    This is the universal greeting given to white foreigners regardless of whether the person who is addressed is male or female. The less advanced English students know only “Mister” and “how are you”, which they will enthusiastically yell at white foreigners many times.

    padang food

    padang food is probably one of the most popular food in indonesia. you can find it everywhere in indonesia and always moslem friendly.
    the taste is very spicy and usually people eat it with their bare hand.
    the way they serve the food is also unique. they put everything on your table and you don't have to eat everything of course.
    they usually don't put price either, but usually it's not that expensive.
