    KW and MrsKW are under pressure today, being 'interviewed' by the Ibu-Ibu

    Ibu-Ibu (or the married women) are a force to be reckoned with in Indonesia, influencing husbands and living on gossip, many a new comer to a village or area has to ensure that he/she gets on the good side of these self-elected moral guardians. (I've heard more than one story where Ibu-ibu have rounded up the security guards to 'arrest' or remove females from male residences in the early hours of the morning if a marriage certificate cannot be produced)

    Since arriving in this area 18 months ago, we have managed to avoid a few 'meetings' and one or two parties, but new the the knock on the door would have to come at some stage.

    I had a late night call on thursday evening, the long and the short of it was that I was 'invited' to host the next weekly meeting at my home on sunday morning at 10.00am...... about 12-25 visitors might come by.

    I was reasonably relaxed about it all, earlier.....

    Best wishes!

    To make the best impression:
    1. Hide all porn videos, especially those containing pigs, as pigs are haraam.

    2. Say many nice things about the Dutch, preferably in Dutch. Gently remind the ladies that you are following the Dutch tradition of inter-marriage; these ladies respect traditions!

    3. Comment on the attractiveness of their hair. Older women take pride in their hair, as that is the only attractive feature remaining.

    4. Slightly re-position the arrows on the ceiling that point to Mecca. The ladies will likely be distracted by this, and will spend their time wondering what the correct direction is.


    At the end of the visit, tell the ladies you are genuinely interested in their culture, and whether it would be possible for you to take their husbands out for a beer or three to learn more.

    Good luck!

    Be careful mate, they are a muslim country so will probably take a dim view of same sex marriages.

    Could there be some correlation between your rash and the pending visit from the Ibu Ibu?

    hell no! I'd get caught one day.

    Anyway, this was a serious meeting, as 3 or 4 Bupak bupak (men-folk) got dragged along too, but i was missing the aussie footy and rugby on TV, however i decided it would be prudent to not turn on the TV until after they left!
