Dear parents pls think twice before enrolling your kids in Djuwita. Their air conditioner brokes down for 1.5 months and alot of parents complained about it but the school gave standard reply of in the process of repairing, totally disappointed in this profit driven schoool. Every year when the kids get promoted , parents are to pay for books fees and and program fees of $390 on yearly basis . Unlike other schools whereby we only need to pay bks fee

MateoIva90 posted Great coffee across the road from JIS on the Indonesia forum:
Ok, so hubby and I just returned to Jakarta from being away for 9 months... We've been spoilt with fab Campos coffee :) We thought we might try this new tiny little coffee shop across the road from JIS (I can't stand Starbucks! Don't agree with the whole institution- most of us Sydneysiders and melbournians and don't- that's why they've shut down a lot of the stores!) Anywho... The place across the road from JIS is called Coffee 25 or 25 Coffee... The coffee was FANTASTIC!!! With a capital F. We got talking with the kid running the place- he is YOUNG but he knows his coffee- and passionate about it too. Will definitely be back!

Cherilyn commented on the Expat Report Dating and Marriage in Batam, Indonesia
What is it like in your country of residence for someone with your relationship status (married/divorced/dating)? If you're single, how do you meet other people? Do English-speaking people tend to gravitate to certain parts of your city?
From what I hear from my married friends, it is very difficult for them here. There is little concern that a western man is married and the local women are quite aggressive.

If you are a single man, be prepared for LOTS of proposals. They are highly coveted so they can lift the local women out of poverty. If you are a single woman, be prepared to find other things to occupy yourself with as you will be intimidating to the local guys and competing with the local women for western guys. Besides that most of the single western guys are older and just looking for company. I recommend spending lots of time in Singapore or Australia. (Continue)

My name is Cherilyn, i am from Singapore and i have been in relationship with my boyfriend for 1 year now and we were planning to get married soon and as time went on he started a secret dating with another girl and later left me for the girl, i really love this guy and never can imagine life without him. I further tried all my best to get him back but all my effort to get him back in my life did not work out. It was on this faithful day, i came across some comments on a website about this great spell caster called Priest Ajigar, so many testimonies that he help them to renew their relationship and bring their ex back, i had to contact him because he was my last hope. I contacted him through his email and he assured me that in three days time my boyfriend is going to leave the other girl and come back to me and it was a very great surprise to see my boyfriend coming back to me after three days the spell was done. I am so very happy today that he came back to me and i achieved this with the help of Priest Ajigar spell and if you need his help to get your husband or ex back in love? Then you can email Priest Ajigar for help on (

matabiru111 commented on the Expat Report Moving to Batam, Indonesia
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
It can be difficult for a new expat, but I would recommend driving around and looking at several houses and complexes before making a decision, so you get an idea of what to expect. (Continue)
