My Cost of Living in Jakarta ~$1200/month

I feel like I have let the fans down cuz I did an awful job with this budget break down. I know how much I spent, and I know exactly what I spent on certain things but not others. The whole 1.3 million rupiah per $100 thing really threw me off and I just got lazy to track my total expenses. Still I can give a good break down of how much things cost here, and overall I found it a very interesting city when...

Dating in Jakarta vs the Philippines

When I was in Thailand I didn’t really do much dating. I put in a bit of effort and had a bit of success on dating sites and meeting girls at malls, but I didn’t give it a full go really. Jakarta is different, the girls on Indonesia Cupid are much easier to talk to then Thai girls and they are not shy at all about meeting up. It is actually very similar to the Philippines in many ways, but with less English spoken. I was...

Harder to Pick up Girls in Malls in Jakarta?

I knew that ‘malling’ was a big thing in the Philippines but I thought it was an all over Asia thing not only a Filipino thing. Davao mall The malls in Bangkok were quite crowded as well, but it is a huge city and I was right in the heart of it so that is no surprise. Jakarta Malls are Dead Jakarta is a massive city as well, so why are the malls here so dead? I am really surprised at how small and empty these malls...

Date with a Jakarta Girl on Tinder – Trip Report

Hot Jakarta girl on Tinder Some readers of this blog may have noticed that I basically never mention Tinder on here. Some may think that it is because there is no affiliate for Tinder so I have no reason to ‘pimp it out’ but that really isn’t the case. It’s because Tinder sucks in the Philippines. Sure you can get laid using it, but too many girls are on there just to chat and amuse themselves (‘Tinder timewasters’). The dating sites are a much more efficient way...

First (And Only) Experience With Jakarta Visas

I enjoy living in Jakarta so far and overall it is very similar to the Philippines. It is nice to be somewhere new for a change and I would kind of like to stick around for awhile and see if things are better here then Phils. They are very similar with a few key differences. So far I have actually been able to find hotter girls on average on dating sites like Indonesian Cupid, DIA and on Tinder and there aren’t many foreigners around which is...

First Time at Jakarta Spas

About 6 months ago I was reading on mysexpedition blog and that is when I first found out about the Jakarta spas which also double as strip clubs / brothels. I had some interest in checking out Jakarta anyways, but now I knew I had to go. I really didn’t know what to expect because so often you read about how great a place is and then when you show up it doesn’t at all live up to the hype. This happened to me a lot...

More Visits From the Virgin

Considering my first time with this girl was up there for best days of my life I was very hopeful to get a return visit from the ex virgin I talked about in last post. She is a solid 7 and that is a big win from a dating site, then add in that she was a virgin and just an all around awesome girl I really needed to see her again. It took ten days of texting but she finally came back over. Pretty much...

Debating Indonesia vs Philippines for Long Term Living

Clearly I really love the Philippines and I could be very happy spending the rest of my life there. But after 3 years I wanted to travel around and make sure I really was in the best place. Lately I’ve been trying out Jakarta, Indonesia. I have been to Pattaya and Bangkok neither of which worked great for me. Though I gotta say knowing you can get a very good $20 bj at any time still has me thinking Bangkok wouldn’t be so bad….. those damn...

Jakarta’s Blok M: WTF Was That?

I spend a lot of time reading up on places before I go there and sometimes they are similar to how I imagined them, other times they may be very different. Nowhere has been more different then I was expecting then Jakarta’s Blok M. I have read about Blok M for a couple of years now. Jakarta has always interested me but I am lazy when it comes to traveling and hadn’t made my way over yet. Well now it was finally time to come...

Met a Virgin on IndonesianCupid

Living in Asia you have so many memorable days but some will be ones that you truly will never forget. For me yesterday was one of those days. I met this very cute 19 year old on IndonesianCupid that spoke quite a bit better English then most girls in Jakarta but she still wasn’t great at it. However she was a very happy and fun girl that loved to joke around. Girls like that are right in my wheel house. After only a few days...

Failed Date with Rich Chick in Jakarta

Indonesian model Siva Aprilla on Instagram Third day in Jakarta I am walking through the Grand Indonesia mall which is really nice and huge and pass some very light skinned girl. I can’t tell if she is white or Indo…… but she is hot and I give her my number. An hour later we are texting and I find out that she is a flight attendant for a private jet for some rich dude in Saudi Arabia. She is half Saudi and half Indo and spends...

Treating Molluscum Contagiosum STD

So when I first moved to the Philippines I lived in Angeles City for 5 months before moving on to Manila and Cebu. I had read online that lots of guys were banging girls in Angeles without a condom and most were saying they never caught anything. I decided, perhaps unwisely, to not wrap up with some bargirls from the more established bars as they get weekly checkups. With freelancers or smaller short time bars I would use protection. My rule at the time was basically if...

Arriving in Jakarta Day One

Even though not to much happened on my first day in Indonesia I still like to blog about day one in a place, as much for my own good as the people reading here. I think of this as my journal sometimes. When I arrived at the airport the immigration lines were very short, I quickly found a money changer but the rate was quite bad so I just traded in $40 instead of $100. I had read to take a Bluebird Taxi and there were quite...

Bareback, Condoms, STDs & HIV in Philippines / SE Asia

I have been living in South East Asia for around 4 years now and had lots of unprotected sex in that time. When I first moved here I was living in Cambodia and always wearing condoms with working girls. Then as time went on it was ‘well I don’t see her working much so I will try without.’ Or ‘she is really hot I’ll make an exception.’ Eventually I pretty much forgot condoms even existed. I really don’t care about growing to be 70 years...
