BuGils Family “Buka Puasa Bersama” Geothermal

Energy Prioritized in Java

Jakarta - The use of geothermal energy in the second stage 10,000 MW project will be prioritized in Java Island, Vice President Boediono said. "I wish that the 10,000 MW project stopped using coal, especially in Java island," he said in Jakarta. "Places other than Java may continue using coal, but it is also still being considered and planned," he said.

The BuGil’s staff and crew gathered at Eastern Promise for a “Buka Bersama” on August 26th. It was a warm felt night.

Jakarta's Traffic May Totally Jam by 2014 The length of streets in Jakarta is only 7,650 kilometers with the width of 40.1 kilometer source : en.vivanews.com

JAKARTA - Traffic jam in Jakarta is However, Kirono said the density was not predicted to be out of control. If the problem continues to occur, Jakarta’s traffic is said to be seriously jammed in 2014. Jakarta Police Traffic Director Sr. Comm. Condro Kirono explained about several factors triggering the congestion in the city of 662 square kilometers area. One of them was the imbalance between the growth in the number of street lanes and operating vehicles. The length of streets in Jakarta is only 7,650 kilometers with the width of 40.1 kilometers, which is about 0.26 percent of the city’s total width. Every year, the streets only grow 0.01 percent, causing significant imbalance with the high rate of trips.

only caused by the high volume of private vehicles, which was estimated to reach 2,115,786 units, and motorbikes that is up to 7,516,556 units, but also the soaring number of public transportations serving in one route. He also said in addition to inflicting time losses, traffic congestions also lead to material detriments that are worth trillions of Rupiah. A research even suggested that economic losses due to traffic hold-ups in Jakarta were up to Rp 12.8 trillion per year, which included time, fuel costs and health expenses.

Earlier, Coordinating Minister for Economy Hatta Rajasa said the secondstage 10,000 MW project will be based on geothermal energy. "If a regulation is necessary, we will make it, and if a law is needed, we will discuss it with the House of Representatives," he said. Indonesia`s geothermal potential was said to be the biggest in the world, reaching 28,112 megawatts (MW). Of these figures, the biggest geothermal reserve is 14,707 MW, with a power capacity of 14,405 MW. But only four percent, or 1,189 MW in 265 locations is utilized by Indonesia for four percent of electric energy, or 1,189 MW, whereas actually the utilization of fiver percent of this energy or 9,500 MW by 2025 had already been proclaimed.

NEWS Motorcyclists Not Taking Up Special Travel Arrangements source : thejakartaglobe.com Putri Prameshwari JAKARTA - Jakarta. A scheme to reduce the number of motorcycles being used in the annual exodus from urban centers in the run-up to the Idul Fitri holidays appears to have failed, with all but a few people deciding they would rather ride their vehicle than send it by road or rail. Suroyo Alimoeso, the Ministry of Transportation’s director general of land transportation, said on Sunday that the number of people who had registered their motorcycles to be carried by truck was far lower than had been predicted. “We decided to depart one day earlier because no one else had registered up until Saturday,” Suroyo said. The ministry prepared two trucks capable of carrying up to 144 motorcycles for free from Jakarta to Semarang and Purwokerto in Central Java.

Jakarta to Semarang and on to Surabaya, East Java, starting on Sept. 7. For a fare of Rp 300,000 ($33.30) or Rp 400,000 respectively for each destination, a passenger could bring one motorcycle and another passenger. They would also get three meals a day, plus a mattress to sleep on. “Whether it’s expensive or not is relative,” Setio said. “We’re doing this because we want to reduce the number of accidents involving motorcycles.” State railway operator Kereta Api Indonesia also failed to encourage motorcyclists to use its services despite offering those bringing along a two-wheeler a slightly cheaper fare than regular passengers.

Owners could also register their motorcycles and get two free seats on a separate bus that would take them to both cities.

Mateta Rizalulhaq, company spokesman for the Jakarta region, said that six days before Idul Fitri, the number of tickets sold for motorcycles had fallen compared to last year.

However, he said, by Saturday, only 16 motorcycles had been registered for the Semarangbound truck, and 20 for the one to Purwokerto.

“Around 1,500 motorcycles have been carried so far this year,” Mateta said. “In 2009, the number was closer to 1,900.”

“Maybe most people are still using their motorcycles for work because the holiday officially only starts next Wednesday,” Suroyo said.

KAI charges Rp 200,000 to carry each motorcycle. Danang Parikesit, who heads the Indonesian Transportation Society, said the lack of response might be because the government did not explain or promote the programs properly.

The ministry operated the scheme as a trial this year in a bid to reduce the number of people heading to the regions on their motorcycles. Suroyo said that in view of the poor response, the ministry would look at alternative methods next year. A similar response was also experienced by state ferry operator Pelni, which provided a vessel, the MV Ganda Dewata, for people traveling by motorcycle. Setio Budi Santoso, Pelni’s corporate secretary, said it was still unclear whether the Ganda Dewata would depart, given the lack of passengers. “We’re still waiting for more people wanting to board this ship,” he said. The Ganda Dewata, he said, would sail from

“People need to be made aware of how dangerous it is to ride a motorcycle on a long journey,” he said, adding that the government should have promoted such programs months before Idul Fitri. Communication, Danang said, was the key to improving safety measures and promoting the government’s programs. “It’s such a shame that 700 to 800 lives are lost each year because there’s lack of coordination over safety,” he said. Millions of people join the annual exodus from urban centers to the rural areas, where they celebrate the Idul Fitri festivities that mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan in their hometowns with family and friends.

Burger King to Stop Buying Oil From Sinar Mas source : blog.indahnesia.com

JAKARTA - Environmentalists on Saturday praised Burger King's decision to stop buying palm oil from an Indonesian company accused of destroying rainforests. The U.S. hamburger chain giant said Friday that it was canceling its contract with PT Sinar Mas Agro Resources and Technology over concerns it had not adopted sustainable farming practices. It cited an independent audit that found the company's plantations had violated several regulations, including planting in some peatland swamps and secondary forests. "These practices are inconsistent with our corporate responsibility commitments," Burger King said in a statement on Facebook as it joined a growing list of multinationals that have broken ties with Sinar Mas. Burger King did not say what its alternate source of palm oil - used for frying - would be. The environmental group Greenpeace, which has accused Sinar Mas companies of tearing down forests that are home to orangutans and other endangered species, welcomed the move. Bustar Maitar, the group's regional forest campaigner, urged other major corporate consumers like Cargill, Pizza Hut and Dunkin' Donuts to do the same. Jatna Supriatna from Conservation International Indonesia sees the move as a lesson for Sinar Mas and others companies that have destroyed the tropical forests that are home to endangered wildlife and act as a filter to absorb carbon dioxide, a key cause of global climate change. "They should not just be aggressive in expanding plantations without allotting their revenues for the forest restoration," Supriatna said Saturday. "The government has to stop them." Indonesia is the world's largest producer of palm oil, a cheap commodity used to manufacture cooking oil, margarine, cosmetics and bio fuel. Sinar Mas said in a statement it was disappointed with Burger King's decision, but would work hard to convince the U.S. company that it was committed to sustainable practices. Unilever, Nestle and Kraft Foods also have recently broken ties with Sinar Mas.

NEWS PMI Distributes 25,000 Masks to Mt Sinabung Evacuees source : www.antaranews.com

SUMATRA - The Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) has distributed about 25 thousand masks to residents in Tanah Karo district, North Sumatra, following the recent eruption of Mount Sinabung. "We distributed the masks in road intersections," Head of the PMI`s Disaster Mitigation Division Sumarsono said here on Sunday. In addition, the PMI also had distributed sanitation and family kits consisting of soap, toothpaste, buckets, sarongs and blankets to the evacuees, he said. "Nearly 8 thousand to 10 thousand kits have been distributed," he said. The PMI also made available two clinic cars equipped with two doctors and four nurses to provide medical treatment to the evacuees around the clock, he said.

were in good health, he said. The 2,640-meter-high Mount Sinabung erupted for the first time in 400 years on Aug 29, causing over 25,000 residents to flee their homes to safer places. It erupted for the second time the following day, spewing thick volcanic ash, and cloud, and causing a threeminute long earthquake. Some of the evacuees had earlier returned home but were again evacuated on Friday morning when the volcano showed increased activities, just an hour before it erupted for the third time. Mount Sinabung is the highest mountain in North Sumatra and is located 110 km west of the provincial capital Medan.

Remote Indonesian Island Reaches for Stars by Playing Host to Space Center source : thejakartaglobe.com, Ismira Lutfia

INDONESIA - The space agency this week moved a step forward in its plans to build an integrated space center on an island off the southwestern coast of Bengkulu province. Adi Sadewo Salatun, the head of the Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (Lapan), said the center would be built on Enggano Island in the Indian Ocean. He was speaking at the signing of a memorandum of understanding at the LapanBengkulu provincial administration office. Adi said the island, in the outermost reaches of the archipelago, was the perfect spot for the country’s launch pad because of its low population and remoteness. “None of the neighboring provinces will be disturbed by our activities there,” he said. Adi said the site of the existing rocket launch site in Pameungpeuk, West Java, had become crowded and was no longer suitable for launching rockets bigger than the last one sent skyward, the RX-420. Given the island’s location, 110 nautical miles from the provincial capital of Bengkulu city, Adi said he was confident the project would not attract new settlers. “This is a lesson that we learned from the 4

Pameungpeuk site, which was sparsely populated when first set up but attracted settlers after it became established,” he said. M Nashsyah, the head of the Bengkulu Regional Planning Agency, said the administration welcomed Lapan’s decision, adding the center would have a positive impact for the locals, especially in terms of technological development.

Lapan launched the unmanned RX-420 in July last year from the Pameungpeuk site after it carried out a stationary test on the rocket in December 2008. The agency also launched two smaller RX-320 rockets in 2008. The next rocket, the RX-550, is scheduled to be launched in 2012 and it will undergo static tests this year and in 2011.

He said that in future, other countries might use Indonesian rockets to put their satellites into orbit. “It will make the island’s and the province’s names known to the world,” Nashsyah said.

Pos M Hutabarat, the head of research and development at the Ministry of Defense, said the space center, initially intended for civilian purposes, would be useful for the military in the future.

He claimed the noise generated from spaceport activities would not disrupt the island’s 2,500 locals because the 200-hectare site was far from residential neighborhoods.

“We could use it for missile defense exercises and testing ballistic missiles with a distance of over 20 kilometers,” he said.

Adi added that the center would have quake-proof buildings and be built in an area of the island that was shielded from the danger of being swept by a tsunami. Enggano Island sits on one of the world’s most active fault lines, where tremors and sometimes quakes are common. They are caused by the grinding of the Indo-Australia plate against the Eurasia plate. Adi said the plan was also in line with Lapan’s program to launch satellite-deploying rockets from 2012 to 2014.

Pos said such projectiles could be aimed toward the neighboring Mega Island, located further northwest from Enggano, to see the effects of the missiles’ explosions. He said the military had had trouble finding a remote area that was large enough to carry out ballistic missile tests over more than 20 km. Adi said work on the site would start next year, with a start-up budget of about Rp 20 billion ($2.24 million) to build the launch pad and prepare it for the RX-550 suborbital test flight in 2012.


NEWS House on Board to Move the Capital source : thejakartaglobe.com Anita Rachman

JAKARTA - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s warming to the idea of moving the capital away from traffic-plagued Jakarta has some lawmakers throwing their support behind drawing up a feasibility study on the move. On Sunday, Yudhoyono called on his cabinet to discuss relocating the seat of government, Velix Wanggai, his special adviser for regional development and autonomy, said in a news release. “The president hopes for an intense consolidation between ministries and institutions to integrate the formulation of a study on moving the capital,” he said. Ganjar Pranowo, a House member from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), welcomed Yudhoyono’s urging the public to consider the option.

capital be moved to a less populated part of the country. Teguh’s idea has also won support from other lawmakers, who suggested moving the capital to underdeveloped but resource-rich Kalimantan. On Friday, while breaking fast with members of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin), Yudhoyono said moving the government’s administrative hub was one of three options being considered in light of Jakarta’s serious infrastructure problems. The president said the capital could be moved entirely or all government offices could be relocated to another area. The last option was to retain Jakarta as the capital while renewed efforts were made to address the city’s long-standing woes.

“It means that we [the House and government] see it as a problem. If the president is really serious about the options he offered, then we should talk and take more concrete steps,” said Ganjar, the deputy chairman of House of Representatives Commission II, which oversees home affairs.

“I hope that the president is serious and that it was not just lip service,” Ganjar said.

Teguh Juwarno, a deputy chairman of the Commission II, had suggested that the

special committee on the project to move the capital,” he said. “We could start selecting competent people to work on a plan. It would be discussed under a joint commission, and we would invite experts on anthropology, culture, urban planning and architecture [to offer their expertise].” He said that it could take two to three years for work to begin on a new capital, and it would be slated for completion in about 10 years. Visi Indonesia 2033, a group made up of scholars who are campaigning for a new capital, estimates that the cost of relocating and building a purpose-built government hub could top Rp 100 trillion ($11.1 billion) over a 10-year period, with between Rp 5 trillion and 10 trillion spent each year. The group argues that the outlay, spread over a decade, would be cheaper than the losses caused by Jakarta’s notoriously bad congestion, which have been estimated to cost up to Rp 20 trillion annually ($2.2 billion) in wasted fuel and productivity.

East Nusa Tenggara Officials Asked to Document Oil Spill Damage for Claim source : thejakartaglobe.com, Eras Poke

KUPANG - East Nusa Tenggara Governor Frans Lebu Raya said he had ordered local officials to gather scientific data to back the nation’s Rp 22 trillion ($2.4 billion) claim for compensation over last year’s Timor Sea oil spill. The claim, presented at an Aug. 26 meeting between a government team and representatives from PTTEP Australasia, a subsidiary of Thailand’s statecontrolled PTT Exploration & Production, was widely criticized for not being backed by scientific evidence. The government’s team has since said it would compile the data “before the holiday season” that kicks off with Idul Fitri on Sept. 10. “Our claims weren’t rejected yet, but the data isn’t accurate, especially pertaining to victims of the oil spill,” the governor said on Saturday. “I’ve ordered all district heads and mayors to collect data on their constitu-

ents affected by the oil spill. After we have collected all the data, an independent team will verify it.” Frans also said the data to be submitted by the district and municipal administrations “need to be clear, starting from the names, addresses and villages,” to facilitate the verification process and ultimately the payment of compensation. Frans said the compensation claim already submitted to PTTEP included costs for coral reef and mangrove swamp rehabilitation over the next 10 years and seaweed farm recovery over the next two years. The spill was the result of a blowout at the Montara wellhead platform in the Timor Sea, off the northern coast of Australia, in August 2009. The leak was only plugged 74 days later and created a large oil slick that reached Indonesian waters. The well, located 690 kilometers west of Darwin, is operated by PTTEP.

On Friday, an Indonesian official said the government would soon compile the evidence needed to back up its hefty compensation claim. “We will try to complete it before the holiday season but there is no deadline [for the submission],” said Masnellyarti Hilman, the head of the government’s advocacy team. The statement came a day after PTTEP said it “has not accepted any claim made by the Indonesian government for compensation.” Meanwhile, Christine Mason, an Australian environmental activist and legal adviser for the West Timor Care Foundation, said the government did not seem to care about the impact of the oil spill, citing the lack of a lawsuit against PTTEP. “This is very weird [compared to the spate of litigation in] the oil spill case in the Gulf of Mexico,” Mason said. “This is a humanitarian hazard that needs to be handled as soon as possible, [and should] not only be limited to a submission of compensation claims.” She also said the government’s claim needed to be backed by a “scientific investigation in the field to measure all economic and ecological impact.” “Only after that can all claims be presented,” she said, adding that the Timor Sea oil spill could be considered as just as severe as other cases, including the recent Gulf oil spill and the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska. “However, it’s really weird that there’s been no lawsuit from the Indonesian government against the company,” the activist said, adding: “I think that’s just illogical.” Mason, who is also an expert on international oil law, said she was prepared to represent the West Timor Care Foundation’s own claims against PTTEP.

NEWS For Legions of Afghan Children, War Leads the Way to the Streets source : thejakartaglobe.com Andrew Hammond

KABUL - At a center for disadvantaged children in Kabul, shy young girls step up to recite their duties as fasting Muslims for the visiting US ambassador. Teachers look on with pride at young Afghans who were once left at the mercy of the street. Yet the disturbing reality in this war-torn nation — where Western powers battle Islamist forces to maintain a friendly government in power — is that at least 600,000 street children have no safety net to catch them. The problem, experts say, is getting worse because of the deepening war and the scourge of corruption, despite the inflow of more than $35 billion from foreign donors since the Taliban was removed from power in 2001. The dangers for children are many, they say: from drugs to the insurgency, from criminal gangs to sexual abuse. “Poverty is getting worse in Afghanistan and children are forced to find work,” said Shafiqa Zaher, a social worker with Aschiana, the group receiving US aid for its work. Zaher regularly trawls Kabul streets and parks where street children hang out and approaches them to see if they would be interested in an education. “We take the children and show them what we do here and if they agree we go to the family and talk to them,” she said. Some 7,000 in the main cities of Afghanistan are attending Aschiana schools, where food and stationery costs are taken care of and some families are assigned sponsors. Most have a home to go to, even if it is the shell of a building struck in the country’s unending wars, Zaher says, but their guardians are often disabled and cannot work. A study by the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission in 2008 found around 60,000 minors involved in child labor in Kabul alone. Nader Nadery, a senior commissioner at the AIHRC, says it’s a consequence of Afghanistan’s decades of conflict. “In the last three to four years an increasing number of displaced from the war affected

areas — Helmand, Kandahar, Ghazni — have poured into Kabul to seek refuge,” he said. A community of refugees mainly from Sangin in Helmand, where United States forces led an operation against insurgents last year, relies on Aschiana help in a Kabul slum quarter of plastic awnings. In three decades of war, the country’s population has doubled to more than 30 million and the dusty mountain capital has swelled to a city of four million, much of it pot-holed and crumbling, with chronic traffic. “Historically Kabul and Afghanistan have never had this crisis of people not having a ceiling or a roof. They’re all poor but at least they had a home,” Nadery said. He says corruption, the subject of an ongoing diplomatic scuffle between Karzai and Washington and a major issue in parliamentary elections this month, makes a bad situation worse. A United Nations report said in March that entrenched corruption was leaving the poor at the mercy of the powerful while securityobsessed foreign forces turn a blind eye. “The direct link between poverty and corruption is always there,” Nadery said. “Most development projects are halted or don’t reach areas where it would affect the life of the poor because of the corruption involved.” Afghans have been given a rude awakening to the extent of social problems through Omid, or Hope, a daring television show that has been running on Saba TV for the past two years. Investigating dozens of cases around the country, producer and researcher Zainab Rahimy found children whose parents were addicted to opium, boy soldiers drafted into fighting for the Taliban and an alarming frequency of sexual abuse.

She explains one recent case of a 13-year-old who worked two days a week as an office cleaner. His boss was abusing him. “We found out because he started doing drawings that suggested there was something. He was crying when he told me the story,” Rahimy said. “But it’s rare that we do sex abuse on TV. We might follow 10 cases but only one we can film.”

BUGILS FC INTRODUCTION STORY BY FC BUGILS RIGHT-HALF: GG

(photo: Pierre, Marc, Joris & sergio going about their warmup) Anyway, an intro - BuGils FC is the collective noun for a 'concept' which has morphed from a bunch of like minded souls who used to drink in the original BuGils Café in Taman Ria into a bunch of like minded souls who drink (mainly) in Eastern Promise....and De Hooi...and Cazbar. The Café was obviously the inspiration for the first part of the name (as it was for this 'newsletter').The reason for the 'FC' is not so clear to most observers though rumour has it that it was thought that football could provide a focus for the drinking and so a club was formed to join the Jakarta International Football League, or JIFL as it is affectionately known. It is probably worth pointing out at this stage to any readers from less cultured shores who have made it this far that football is a game played with a ball and the foot (or feet [gifted players]) . Your failure to grasp this simple concept is a mystery which is beyond the remit of this publication to investigate. So, back to the context - JIFL is the league, consisting of teams of national and international identity and varying quality. Those teams vying for honours in recent seasons have tended to include a number of players who may be familiar to some readers as the nice chaps encouraging their 10 year olds to dribble round some cones at the weekend. The fees you pay to furnish little Jimmy with the skills necessary to propel him to the dizzy heights of the A league go towards (inter alia) the KITAS costs of hese nice chaps because they are what we call 'professionals'. Professionals in this context seek perfection and shout bad words at their fellow players if they do not conform to standard. BuGils FC does not tend to vie for these honours and the players do not shout bad words at their team mates. This is because we have set a slightly lower standard in terms of football ability.....actually quite a bit lower....but we like to feel that we make up for this with a higher standard of post match drinking and some good natured 'sledging'. This is not to say that BuGils is a bad side...but we do have some weaknesses. A ruthless coach may decide to clear out the dead wood and recruit say five or so new players to increase the quality of the squad but it is thought that such a move would kill the spirit of the team, significantly reduce bar takings and see an end to these match reports. Should these reports continue, you will notice (as you may have done already) that there is very little focus on the actual football played. For the match stats, please see the accompanying table and draw your own conclusions, though be careful because some of the aforementioned 'dead wood' may not seem so dead (remember :there are lies, damned lies and statistics). For reports on the sledging and the post match activities please feel free to read on in future editions, where you will be introduced to (or will recognise) such characters as: Googly Goggs...... formerly the self proclaimed 'best left back in the league' (he misheard someone describe him.....'league' and 'changing room' can sound similar when you are 50ish) Gio aka Jonathan..... Hosting a party at a house near you very soon. Boskerooney..... BuGils' very own 'Joey' (How R Uuu doing?) A man of many personas - Is he 'the postman', is he 'the doctor'...or does he still live with his Mum? and many more..... A new season dawns for the Sky Blue Army (also seen in fetching black t-shirts with white detail - Toxic Fish eat your heart out). Let the games begin

BuGils bi-Weekly - Issue #15 - 6th September 2010

As this is a new forum for the 'official' match reports of BuGils FC and these will potentially reach a wider audience, this pre-season round up is perhaps an opportune time to put this 'feature' (?) in context, introduce the team and set the scene. I say potentially wider audience - the figures are not yet substantiated but I believe the readership of the last match report was around 36. It has to be admitted that this was only the number of emails on the distribution list and no records were kept of either delivery or read reports so like the Indonesian census the numbers are subject to question. Bart, can you confirm whether the readership of this biweekly is likely to exceed that number?

Cazbar Jokes First Grade Drawing A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for her homework assignment. The teacher graded it and the child brought it home. She returned to school the next day with the following note: Dear Ms. Davis, I want to be perfectly clear on my child's homework illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel. Sincerely, Mrs. Harrington

DE HOOI My bologna has a first name it’s O-S-C-A-R. My bologna has a second name it’s M-A-Y-E-R. Oh I love to eat it every day and if you ask me why I’ll say, cause Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A.. How’s that? Speaking of bologna, I’m surprised you can’t find it here in Indonesia. I mean what is it? Let’s find out. Holy crap! It’s actually a place in Italy. There’s even a University of Bologna. I’m glad I didn’t go there. I wonder how it’s pronounced in Italy. In America we call it /ba-low-nee/ and if someone is full of bologna or that’s a bunch of bologna it means you think they’re full of crap or S-H-I-T. So if you were to tell someone you went to the University of Bologna you can imagine what they would think. So let’s get back to bologna. I really can’t imagine anybody never eating a bologna sandwich. How many times have I pulled off that red circle of plastic encasing the highly processed piece of Mechanically Separated Chicken, Pork, Water, Corn Syrup, contains Less than 2% of Salt, Sodium Lactate, Flavor, Sodium Phosphates, Autolyzed Yeast, Sodium Diacetate, Sodium Ascorbate, Sodium Nitrate, Dextrose, Extractives of Paprika, Potassium Phosphate, Sugar, Potassium Chloride. Oh yeah, fried bologna. You have to cut the edges to keep it flat in the pan. Does anybody know what I’m talking about? I guess you could compare it to Spam or Haggis or something but it’s thinly sliced ready to be put between slices of bread. Anyway it doesn’t say in the ingredients but it’s always been well known that bologna is made up of the best parts: lips, snout, lard, eye lids, etc. You can probably guess the rest. I could probably go on and on about bologna but to find out more just go to www.bologna.com or call 1-800BOLOGNA. Cheers and thanks for making De Hooi Southern Jakarta’s favorite beer joint.

BARTELE GALLERY Walker’s World of Wit :I Knew There Was A Reason For Preferring Wine To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine.. . and those who don't. As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria. In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in faeces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop. However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting. Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health . Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service .

Auguste van Pers (1815 - 1871) Auguste van Pers arrived in Indonesia early in 1837 and shortly afterwards was employed as an engraver and draughtsman in the Geographic Dept. of Bureau of Statistivs int he General Secretariat at Buitenzorg. In 1843, he moved to the recently established printing office of the Topographical Bureau of the Engineers, and there executed lithograph plates for Junghuhn’s article in the Tijdschrift voor Neerlands-Indie (1844). At the same time his talents as an engraver were enlisted by the booksellers, Ukena & Co., Batavia, to execute a series of lithograph plates after drawings by the French artist, Ernest Hardouin, for a work entitled Nederlandsch Oost-Indische Typen, which was to depict the various elements of Indonesian society, accompanied by brief, and, so far as possible, humorous descriptions. The work was announced as being in preparation by Ukena & Co. in the Indisch Magazijn in 1844, when some proof plates were printed, but the work did not proceed and by 1851 Van Pers and Hardouin had decided to go their separate ways.

Waterdrager. Porteur d’Eau. Auguste van Pers. 1856. This rare and coloured print shows a Javanese water carrier with two buckets on a shoulder yoke. Excellent condition. Measures 265 x 215 mm.

In October 1851 Lange & Co., Batavia published Part 1 of Nederlandsch Oost-Indische Typen drawn from life and lithographed by Van Pers, with descriptions in Dutch and French, and plate captions in those languages as well as Javanese and Malay. The work was to be published in 12 parts, large quarto format, with 72 plates. The work was never completed due to Van Pers’ ill health and his departure for the Netherlands in January, 1852. A total of 16 plates were apparently printed, although it is possible that only the 6 contained in Part 1 were actually published. In the Netherlands, the enterprise was taken over by C.W. Mieling, The Hague, who published the work between 1853 and 1862. Mieling stated that the work would appear in 20 parts, each which would contain 80 plates, with text in Dutch and French. As originally projected, the completed work would contain 80 plates, a figure that was never reached. Brinkman’s Catalogues states that 40 plates were published although in fact 56 plates were published, but most extant copies contain only 44 plates.

Opiumschuivers. Des Fumeurs d’Opium. Auguste van Pers. 1856. This stunning print shows Javanese locals smoking opium from a pipe in their home. Excellent condition. Measures 300 x 250 mm.

The colourful plates vary greatly in subject matter and have become great collector’s items for those interested in Indonesia’s history. At Bartele Gallery, we have the full set of these valuable prints from Oost-Indische Typen for sale so please feel free to stop by and view them!
