    2. Can you buy Triple Lecithin in Jakarta?

    3. If you with 'herbal viagra' mean Jamu things; yes. I have used Urat Madu more than 1 year now, work good with me. 20 k for pack with 2 capsules, I pay 100 k for 7 packs.

    Random questions

    Hi Gents.

    As its quiet, I thought I'd post a few questions / comments.

    1. Does anyone know of a vibrator / toys supplier in Jakarta? I know there was some discussions on the forum about Mal Ambassador previously, but I can't find the place. I assume it is no longer there?

    2. Has anyone else had success with taking Triple Lecithin? I have found it quiet useful to increase the ejaculate volume, there is info on the internet about this topic if you do your research. Why I hear you ask. Well 2 reasons, first hers-indoors doesn't suspect as much when you can dump a big load after you have performed earlier in the day, and also an increase in volume means an increase in sensation, or so I personally believe.

    3. Anybody have any luck with the herbal viagra type product. Usually the bottle says something about 'mens stamina' I get offered these alot when I am in the apotek buying condoms. I am happy to pay for the real thing, but I am curious. Anyone have experience with this, does it work?

    Thanks HHM.

The travel agent usually got this done in one day, you hand over your passport in the morning and collect it in the late afternoon so you didn't even have to stay over, although I always took advantage of an over-nighter in Singapore back then. After your 60 days are up you simply hop over to Sing and repeat the process. It always worked for me, although I haven't had to do it in over five years now but it might be worth checking out.
    Thanks for the suggestion. I will consider doing it. Can you PM me the phone number of your man in Singapore? However, due to circumstances, I won't be able to avoid the first VOA.

    Consider it non-existent.

    VOA (again)

    VOA (again)

    Like I mentioned before, I will be staying in Jakarta for almost 4 months. For that, the most common visa will be the social culture one that can be extended until a stay of a total of six months.

    But I'm considering a different way and please share your personal or near personal experiences. No"hear say" please.

    For the first two months I plan to get a VOA for 30 days and extend it with another 30 days. So that makes 60 days on one VOA.

    At the end of those first 60 days I plan to leave RI and return ASAP to collect my second VOA. This one I will also extend with 30 days, thus covering about 4 months with two VOA's.

    My questions are: is it true that a VOA is extendible and how long do I have to leave the RI before collecting my second VOA? If the first VOA is extendible, so will be the second one?

    Taxis in Bali

    Here's a bit on what worked for me negotiating cab prices in Ubud and Kuta. I stayed four days in a hotel near the southern end of Ubud and four days in one near the eastern end of Kuta (under two km from the chaos, as the pig flies).

    In Ubud, there are no meters, and everything is negotiable. Normal "around-town" hops I just paid the 50 K they asked for, without trying very hard to get that any lower. (I'm 66 years old and not in particularly good shape, but I can assure you that walking works in Ubud, if you can take the heat.).

    In Kuta, the taxis all have meters, but almost all the drivers want to negotiate a fixed price. It's easier to gouge you that way, and if they put it on the meter, the taxi company gets bigger cut.

    I made several trips between my hotel and the intersection of Jalan Legian and Jalan Raya Kuta (one and a half or two km):

    - The first time, the driver wanted 50 K, and I paid it.

    - The second time, the driver actually wanted to put it on the meter (I don't know why) and it was under 20 K.

    - Thereafter, I started negotiating a fixed fare. 30 K turned out to be a "win-win" most often. But in downtown Kuta, a lot of drivers open with a 100 K bid. If they started there, I just walked away.

    Bottom line: I strongly recommend figuring out what the meter would be for a given trip, and using that as a basis for your negotiation. If you simply pay the meter, you'll see a lot more of the "scenic route".

    Sex mountain. For me, a case of cheap sensationalism done by the Australian news program "dateline" to get the viewers in.

    It is in the media every where. I guess they named it "Sex mountain" for best effect. As if the influx of sex-tourists from Australia is not high enough.

    I remember the area / sex scene was covered here in ISG without the sensationalism. Please find below a link to a great field report by Gonzo Two, posted 11 years ago.

    Hard liquor

    One thing is for sure if you did have a problem some discreet cash will sort it out.
    And if you are of a nervous disposition: many supermarkets in Jakarta have a discreet corner where you can buy wodka, whiskey, cognac, etc. Various brands of beer are sold in the regular area.

    Regards,

    1 Liter of Wine or Liquor

    I always pick up a liter of Cognac before I enter Bali. They never check, but they have 3 bozos on the scanning belt. The only country I know that scans incoming baggage. You could get a couple of liters and ask the person behind you to put it thru with their baggage. And then collect on the other side.

    Indonesia is the most greedy country when it comes to taxes or duty. A bottle of Australian wine that I can but in Hawaii for $6 or $7, sells for 400,000 rp in Bali. Just pure greed.
