Indo thread back to life!!!
nee, smoke, connection yg sekarang kan udah ganti. Now it's Rp.195.000 unlimited/month. Tapi the download speed kinda sucks, antara 15-35kbps depending on what time you're online. Or maybe it's jabodetabek only, but I heard it's going nationwide by September if not already. The thing is they reserve all the high-speed download for the ultimate gaming package or something like that, which costs over Rp 1mil/mo T.T
As for cigarettes, eh, I don't smoke jadi ga tau banyak. But most Indos I know aren't crazy about Jarum products, too much chemical essence in the tobacco, they say, bikin mual. 234 and A-mild are the most popular ones here, with customers including middle easterns and viets. Imagine how cool it is when foreigners show up at cigarette stores asking for 234.
Malaysia, I'm not sure what their problem is, but it's been looking for trouble with Indo since the 60s, so its actually nothing new, it's just getting worse and worse.
About local products, mau tau masalah Indo made products? They got shitty quality and endurance. Sanyo products in US are made in Tangerang. They're cheaper than US and Japanese built products (though China made ones are about equal priced), but unfortunately they dont last as long as even the Chinese made ones. The same goes with shoes, Nike, Adidas, Puma, you name it.
Ini yg selalu jadi Indo's problem all the time, no freakin quality control at all!!! All that while at the same time we have to work hard to compete with China and India. It may sound harsh, but its the truth.
