    You don't see that in the west!

    Gonna make this a picture thread of weird indonesian things that are otherwise considered normal here.

    1st up motorbikes, now the indo's use motorbikes for transporting almost everything, this guy is carrying chickens in a specially designed motorbike chicken carrying box. I was on my way home from work when i got this pic of this bike.

    this is how they deliver ice to shops and so on.

    on the back of a treadly, he then hacks off large chunks for each shop or vendor, i find that i get the squirts every time i drink anything with this ice in it for some reason.

    i think he would have said she looks like a 2dollar russian whore with that get-up traipsing around a bloody monkey forest in Bali. and she should go easy on the bleach b4 all her hair falls out.

    but never mind, i thought it was funny, obviously not.

    That is one freaky picture of the goat legs hanging behind your boy! That would scar me for life if I saw that as a youngster. He'll be having dreams of dancing goats legs for a long time after, no doubt.

    a quite common sight round these parts is shopfronts advertising their wares, masakan padung is a style of food cooking, every shop i've seen always stack their plates like this, tastes alright too. this shop is just outside my workplace.



    here's the inside (minus chairs as the young gal had just cleaned da floor)



    heres a view outside...

    not much is it!?
