          Welcome to the forum, natasa. I suggest you spend a little time browsing the "Laws, Visas and Money Matters" channel of this forum and looking at the requirements (or more likely, the complaints about the requirements!) for foreigners to work here. To be honest it will be REALLY hard for you to find legal work, especially now that one of the new requirements (or old requirements they are now more strictly enforced, I'm not sure) is supposedly 5 years of related experience in your home country. Also you can only get a job if it can be shown no Indonesians are available to fill it. This is hard to do even for highly skilled positions that take years of training and experience to reach - it will be even harder for someone who is only 27.

          In your position I would not be optimistic. But I wish you luck and hope you find a company that is willing and able to jump through the necessary hoops.

              Don't give up. If working is a financial necessity for you, then maybe you should think about a plan B that does not involve living in Indonesia (or work on line at home if you can find a way to do that). But - if you are committed to staying here and can afford not to work, then the best thing might be to reinvent yourself.

              I know how you feel - as a "trailing spouse" on several occasions, I quickly started to go crazy without a job. However, there are ways to lead a rewarding, contributing life here that don't involve paid work. Do on-line course work in a field you've always wanted to study. Learn Indonesian incredibly well. Help out at an animal shelter. Join music or theatre groups - or something. There are lots of options, but you have to be willing to re-invent yourself and have a lot of self-discipline to meet goals you set for yourself. (Far too nosy a thing to suggest without knowing a thing about you, but if you are planning to have a family and you are in good place socially and economically, this is a great opportunity to have a kid.)

              Me, I can't wait to quit my job...I'm going to practice gamelan 3-4 hours a day, read like a maniac, expand my cooking repertoire, and exercise more.

              Anyway, just my 2 cents. I am not really trying to offer specific advice since I don't know anything about your life circumstances. But my general, non-specific advice is: be creative about your life!

                puspawarna is right: you need to occupy yourself if you can afford it financially it will make sure you will not die in the flat + some of the jobs can be offered to you in the social circles like gym, swimming pool, tennis court, golf court even going to the church you may find some temporary job. Make sure not to fall into depression!

                    I agree with Puspawarna. Make use of your time creatively while looking for a job. I am a trailing spouse myself and I was in the same space as you are now. These days, I try to fill my time with activities I thought I've always wanted to do when I was still working. I learned how to sew, cook, and use adobe photoshop and illustrator by watching lots of youtube videos and scouring the internet for tips and tricks. I volunteer at church. I read books which hubby kindly borrows from the school library. I know you can always download books but nothing beats having to hold a hardcopy in your hands. There are plenty of things you can do even if you don't leave the apartment to push out doubts. You can also blog about your activities, experiences, observations and discoveries while in Indonesia. This can be for your own future reference of your time here or it can also be a potential income generator.

                      Thanks for all advice. I already go to gym 3-5 time a week and on the swimming pool-and people who aren't frendly here at all. In this 3 mounts that i live here i read about 6-7 books (on kindle) , i cook every day ,even i learn how to bake a bread in rice cooker (don't have a owen)...i fill lot of application for jobs... i can afford financial that i don't work, but i don't feeling usefull on this way... I had really good job in my home country, i was deputy head of drogerie store that have 5000 sqm and have daily sales100 000 $ .... The point is that i like to work and be with people...

                        Start your own business in a area that you know; consultant, import/export or whatever you would like.
                        If you success to start something getting propper visa should not be a big problem

                          I hear you, sister. I was once in the same boat as you are, spending the entire day in the apartment was a little too much even for an introvert like me. I craved real human to human interaction. I did some volunteer work, still do, and it helps a lot. Hang in there, I'm sure you will find your own rythm.

                          Im sure there lots of tutorials for blogging. There are blogging platforms out there that are user friendly, and free to boot. Wordpress, blogger, tumblr and weebly to name a few. Maybe worth a try. ������

                            Volunteer work is what sprang to my mind as a possible solution, but I believe even that is legally prohibited in the absence of a suitable visa. Be a little careful.
                            Sometimes I feel I must be lexdysic.

                              The international women's associations do a lot of social welfare work, very visibly with Indonesian partners, and no one bats an eye. It's obviously possible to get together with people and do things here.
