Now imagine what the most far-flung and peripheral parts of the country can expect in terms of government attention to identified problems.
      Yes it has and the other day SBY was stood, with trousers rolled up, outside his flooded Palace looking a sorry soul and bemused. One has to ask why he has done bugger all about it whilst in power, rather looking a such pathetic soul on TV.

            No need to leave the country... Just come here (Samarinda), all road are dry!
            Recently, they clean up all "got" and the main road are no more floaded after a rain like the first year I was here.
            Now they are building new drain for help to evacuate the rain from some area.

            They are also paving (with beton) every small road around the city.

            Start to be a very nice city to leave : D : D

                It looks like the bureau of meteorology is predicting another deluge for the weekend;

                Floods in capital cities around Asia is nothing new. Don't forget the major floods of Mania last year and before that, Bangkok. I think Bangkok lasted a few months before the water subsided.

                  Again, it seems like weather is playing crazy everywhere. Here I am, starting my trip to Jakarta from the opposite side of the globe, spending the night in a hotel after tonight's flight cancellation and hoping that tomorrow the rebooking of my entire flight schedule won't have me flying an eternity. All this due to the crazy weather in Germany.

                  Nice to hear.... NOT... that I may be arriving to a flooded (again...!) Jakarta after this days long journey across 12 time zones.

                    Why is this thread became a place for crybabies to moan and complain about how difficult their live have became because of flood?

                    I thought this thread is for sharing information about flood in Jakarta.

                      Things go hand in hand. And do you think that this flood is acceptable? I think its f---ing criminal that Indonesian folks I know seem to accept that every five years or so they need to replace everything that they own. It's not right, when it is preventable. With the amount of unemployed and underemployed folks in this city, and the fact that we know how corruption works around here, some honesty, enforcement, and planning could have reduced life loss, property loss, and "crybabies moaning and complaining."

                        It keeps the thread alive until the next deluge. Your lack of empathy would suggest that you stayed dry.

                          No no, as expressed in quite some posts, Lolitap considers it subversive and undermining to express negative sentiments about any aspects of the 'Indonesian' way of life, culture, state and government.

                              You've been warned by Puspawarna few days ago about the tone of your posts addressing forum members and the policy of www.livinginindonesiaforum.org.

It exists to help new (and long-term) expatriates, many of whom are stressed, confused, and in need of a kind word and a helpful bit of advice. Your recent posts are definitely on the edge of what is acceptable. If you do not post in a more polite manner, you will receive an infraction and eventually be banned.[/COLOR]

                              It seems you didn't get the message. This will cost you a few infraction points this time, but should you persist in ignoring our warnings and policy, we'll put the plug on your handle. Inflammatory posts are NOT welcome here. Thank you.
