Living in Indonesia X2

Unspun‘s singlular loyal reader (thanks J) has whispered of a new site for expats in Indonesia being set up called Living in Indonesia.

Unspun checked the URl and lo and behold the source was correct. Interesting to see that Okusi Associates, whose owner is a prominent member of the Jakchat, er, forum, is one of the sponsors.

One thing Unspun cannot figure out is the lack of originality in the naming of the website. There is already a Living in Indonesia website that’s been in existence for some years now. So why choose the name Living in Indonesia as it confuses everyone.

Apart from the two “Living in Indonesia”s there’s also What’s New Jakarta that caters to the expat crowd.

So we now have three sites that cater to expats in Indonesia.

  1. come on, ayam, sapi, kambing, they’re all labels. not very nice to label people, is it? i mean, i wouldn’t want to be called an ayam just because i am a member of jakchat and visit for like once a month or so..

    chicken are animals too, as are goats and bulls and elephants.. lol
