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 (

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)

We might be moving from HK to Jakarta later this year... I spotted your post on hiring helper. Can you please share your experience in brief? Are there any agencies to go with? Or is it all word of mouth? It seems situation is a bit different from HK, where it took me no time to choose an agency. Thanks in advance for sharing any tips!!! Eugene.

Don't trust this kind of agencies, you never know what kind of people they send for you. I suggest find helpers or nannies from the people you have know.

rkulikingorontalo replied to the thread Kitten Etiquette on the Indonesia forum:
rkulikingorontalo initially posted:
I just adopted a kitten from a neighbor. I live in a big, expensive house in an area where there are many people without running water indoors. This kitten was the only surviving member of the litter, and my neighbors--who are my friends--own her mother. They are clearly very attached to her, and have come every day since I was adopted to visit. However, my empathy for them has really been challenged because my kitten was crawling with lice when I got her. She has also been throwing up roundworms at least twice a day since she arrived. She is perpetually terrified because people pick her up and cuddle her to their faces, although all she does when left to her own devices is hide and nap. I think the illness of the worms and her fear have made people think she enjoys this attention, but to me she is clearly terrified. Although I am trying to join this community as best I can--I am here for nine months--I have found this very challenging. I love animals, and people are treating my kitten as if she was a stuffed animal. I have actually taken her away from several people, which I know they find bothersome. I also heard the former owner tell someone that she was sick not because of the 5-inch worms she keeps throwing up, but because I wasn't letting her go outside. On the one hand, I very much disapprove of how this kitten has been treated. Other people can treat their animals as they want, but this is my kitten now and I am determined to treat her as I believe animals should be treated, and to protect her. On the other hand, I don't want to alienate anyone in my community. Anyone have any advice?
