Forming New Habits Natalie? Are We Now?  Posted on 01/12/2014
Learn to swim. This is the point where I must remind some of you that it is impolite to laugh at others. My being from an island and now having a pool at home does not give you the right to laugh or make fun of me. ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!

    i live in bali but i need some assistance from someone in jakarta. I am interested in buying a Tuk Tuk ( 3 wheel bike) like the Thaland style not the Bajaj local variety. I understand there are quite a lot in Jakarta but I cannot find where to go with it. Can anyone help?
