    1. the imported apple price need not be nearly 4 times the price of the US apples
    2. local tomatoes are grown here and sell at 15-25000rp/kilo - The US seems cheaper!
    From my understanding, with the amount of different fruit, importing fruit is considered as a luxury (tantrum?), hence the disproportionate cost... and yes, I agree with you it is way too much high and I hate when my wife spend for that.

    The tomato are in a similar place than the apple, they are not use by the local, their is no cultural dish who contain tomato. which place the tomato in a "speciality" market with a quite low selling. Which explain the price.
    Also, I'm quite deceive with the few choice of tomato available (at least here in Samarinda)

    Apple are a imported product in Indo... you should expect higher price than in US
    For the tomato, it's kind of ridiculous. Tomato are topical plant from south america, they can perfectly grow here and a plant will supply tomato all year long none stop (I don't remember the life expectancy of the plant). It is ridiculous to have to import tomato in Indo!
    That's why I have start my own plant some week ago... waiting for the fresh tomato from the garden!

    Some people are very strict avoiding any trace of pork. They don't believe it even if you wash your bowl over and over, vania~.
    I believe PhilippeD's business runs well without such customers.

    thats true, papa phillip!

    im also minority hehe, most muslim around me are like that.. and the open minded one is not so many..
    it also happen in other religions, like Christian or Catholic.. thats one reason why i decide myself i dont wanna be religious like that..

    i find it silly that people who are strict following religion is more like make distance or ruin relationship from other people

    Vania, Vania, Vania....
    Don't you know pork meat and meat not kill by a muslim telling "Allah akbar" is as much dangerous and transmissible than the Ebola virus.

    Putting a foot in a restaurant own by a non-muslim can highly put your life in danger.
    You need to take this very seriously!

    Can you imagine what can happen to you if you smell a cake bake by someone who have eat pork a month ago???


    I know it is not ALL muslim who think like that, but unfortunately A LOT think and act like this without any exaggeration!
    And it amplify by 10 in Ramadan time.


    God bless their soul

    I hope you find more clients. Good luck for the business.

    Speaking of, now I see how BBM is better than WhatsApp in terms of chat history. Been trying to find old chats, the file is .bak, I have Googled all day and I give up. Always better to send conversations via email instead of keeping them on a memory card which I find useless. Anyways, I like WhatsApp better than BBM for daily chats, I can send multiple photos at once and customize the wallpaper

    Just be aware of the "excitement of a new product" even if it's not really new, for most of customer a new packaging is enough for they can consider it "new".
    But after a short time it fall down.

    My wife always offer "new recipe" every week or 2 for keep the "new product" excitement in our customer.

    good luck with your business
