    Introducing Indonesia Export Ltd — the UK Outlet for Indonesia Export products.

    Introducing Indonesia Export Ltd

    We’ve launched a new branch or outlet for the Indonesia Export family: Indonesia Export Ltd (link opens in a new window).

    If you’re in the UK, you’re much better off visiting the UK version of the catalogue as we have made some logistics and distribution deals in Britain that ultimately mean a better service for clients in the UK.

    Advantages include:

    • Smaller Minimum Order — £200.00 compared with the US$2,000.00 on the original website.
    • Cheaper Shipping for small orders (by way of shipping inside our containers).
    • More contact. A direct line to the management in the same time zone.
    • Return Policy — we’ve always guaranteed what we ship but returns have been impossible so our guarantee has effectively meant we’ve lost huge amounts of money by not being able to receive, service & resell problem products. This has also meant we’ve restricted our catalogue and supply network to products we believe we can produce and ship with relatively little risk. The greatest benefit will likely be furniture — meaning, we’ve got a much better opportunity of shipping furniture out of Bali now that we know that if we run into a problem on the UK side, we can simply take back the problem piece and fix it.
    • Recourse to Law — I’ll never know for sure but I would guess that many people who would like to try importing for the first time are put off by the well known pitfalls of dealing with foreign companies that cannot be held accountable for the products they ship (if they ever ship them). If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, read this article on the Indonesia Export blog.

    We’re pretty happy with the new site — as always, it’s built from scratch (I made myself so if you run into any problems, you can just shout at me). A few new wrinkles and moving parts. My hope is that the changes are useful rather than merely pretty.

    New stylesheets have been added via the 960 Grid System. Very handy way of wireframing a site. A few bits and bobs of Javascript to move content around on the front page and a more descriptive (and, therefore I hope, useful) top menu for navigation.

    All in all, I hope it’s an improvement without being too much of a departure. If you have an opinion, let me know.

    Astro & Premier League Story Takes a New Turn

    Well, you could have blown me down with a feather.

    Back in August, I uploaded a personal note on Astro Nusantara after they dropped the British Premier League without so much as a by your leave (see Astro sucks if you’re not short on time and have no particular place to go).

    Last week, I received an SMS / Text Message from Astro saying, “So Long & Thanks for all the Fish”.

    It didn’t say that literally but you get the idea — I half-thought it was a crank or junk text but, when I arrived home, my Astro satellite decoder (cheap piece of crap that it is) did nothing but blink the time at me.

    Damn it: not even the right time.

    (By the way, I might have taken the time to post a few notes on the topic the following week but, fortunately, I had my hands full…)

    Anyhoo, on the day, I didn’t believe it so popped over to the Astro Nusantara website to be greeted by:

    Sorry our website address has changed to
    www.directvisiontv.com
    In a moment you will automatically be re-directed to
    www.directvisiontv.com

    How funny is that?

    So, I went to see the Direct Vision website where I was greeted by a thank you note and a picture of people on elephant back… no, I’m serious, look:

    directvision

    Oh look: the chap at the front has a football… he sure as hell didn’t get that from Astro.

    A thank you note and an elephant… you just couldn’t make this stuff up, could you?

    In case you’re interested, the note reads something like:

    During more than 2 years, PT Direct Vision has broadcast Astro TV and become part of the rich family life of Indonesia.

    Now it is time for us to say goodbye and not broadcast until further notice.

    Sorry, not our inclination to break up with you, the family of Indonesia.

    We remain concerned about our loyal customers.

    Customers who have paid in advance will be called for the refund process.

    We are proud to have served you.

    Thank you on behalf of all the staff of PT DIRECT VISION

    Aha, yeah. Alrighty then. Oh, and about that refund phonecall…

    So there we are. No live football becomes no tv at all.

    Now, back in August shortly after one dreary Saturday night when football and Astro had gone the way of Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston, I had found out there was a new playa on the scene: AORA TV.

    Now, the AORA deal is a weird one I think and given that there’s already a thank you note and an elephant in the picture, you can be pretty sure I mean WEIRD.

    Firstly, I’d never heard of Aora until August.

    Next thing you know they’ve launched a new satellite outfit and they’ve got the contract for the British Premier League. Only 1.7 million rupiah for the WHOLE YEAR. What a deal. And a half.

    And for that, you get the Olympics (on 4 channels) and the British Premier League (2 channels) and the History Channel and the Hallmark Channel and CNN and BBC and, and, and, and Boomerang (?!) and the Crime Investigation network and, and, and, and a few Indonesian free over the air channels… 12 in all at the time of writing but I believe there were only 8 back in those heady early days of August & September. Or it was the Olympics + 8 more channels.

    For only 1.7 mill.

    I’m sold. I’m not: I’m bought and sold — what the hell is going on? Where did this Jonny-come-lately find the moolah (my favourite word of today) to pick up the Olympics and the Premier League but still be wood post dumb enough to not offer anything else?

    Which bright spark at ESPN/STAR allowed themselves into a deal with a company who’ll ensure their brightest product (BPL) never sees the light of day (or late evening)?

    How the hell did that happen? Why, why, why?

    Oh well. Whatever. Never mind.

    The main thing is that it happened.

    So, I call Indovision (no way I’m going to risk being cut off by another new satellite provider and, besides, apart from the football which is only on the weekend, I’d quickly go nuts watching Hallmark and The History Channel from Monday to Friday).

    And that’s how the story went until this morning when Hep tells me on Saturday night he watched Man United kick about with the intrepid Hull City… on normal TV… for free.

    Eh? What? And you didn’t call me?

    It was too late.

    You f**$%#er.

    Then we had a little morning exercise (me chasing Hep around a tiki hut to fetch him a ding alongside the ear) and, after that, we hit the web (we’re just trying to make sense of it all) and, yes, it turns out that TV One (a member of the same group as AORA) is now airing select BPL games live on the weekend.

    You could have blown me down… I said that already.

    And, if you search the TV ONE website for “liga inggris” and can read Indonesian you’ll see that, apparently, since September 18th, Direct Vision (last seen apologising on elephant back with a football) are now being investigated by the Indonesian version of the Anti-Trust committee… or whichever branch of government deals with monopoly.

    Well, something’s fishy… something just plain reeks but if it means easy access to live football, who am I to complain?

    I do hope those chaps at Direct Vision will be ok, though… but perhaps I needn’t worry… that elephant certainly looks fast.

    Hello Beautiful

    Here are the first few minutes of Sophie Helen’s life.

    Sophie was born at 11:23 PM, Monday October 6th at Puri Bunda Hospital in Bali, Indonesia.

    october-06-minute-000…first image, Dad (that’s me) is cutting the chord. Everyone had told me the chord would be surprisingly difficult to cut so, of course, I overcompensated slightly — you could probably hear the SNIP! from a few miles away.

    Then Sophie Helen meets her mother for the first time on the outside…

    …she must have been surprised because at this point, all she did was wail, howl, weep & cry.  Athina on the other hand is tired but delighted.

    The last (and biggest) image, shows mum & Sophie Helen just after baby has been whisked away for a little personal hygiene & grooming. Sophie Helen’s not crying any more and Athina can’t stop beaming with pride. Sophie Helen Puspita Hynes is now about one hour old.

    october-7th-morningHere she is again later in the morning — around 9:00 AM — October 7th being held up to the camera by her grandmother…

    Athina is there in the background totally wiped out and I can’t remember if I’m taking the photo or if I’ve also slumped into the next bed.

    At some point, anyway, we slept. 

     

    october-8th-morningHere’s Sophie Helen having her first “proper” bath and getting prettied up for the cameras. Note she’s posing but there’s nothing really on display.

    In my opinion, a remarkably precocious display of social awareness and elegance — proof october-8th-auntie-galih-and-yangti positive that not only is Sophie Helen beautiful, she’s also a genius. Amazing.

    Freshly bathed, dressed & accessorized, little baby Sophie Helen takes a few minutes out of her busy schedule to be photographed with fans… in this case Auntie Galih and Grandma.

    The next day, October 9th.

    Here I am, I’m sure everyone will agree, on the WRONG october-8th-with-doctor side of the camera.

    Some people might mistake that fixed glaze as the expression of a proud, new dad but in fact I’m just poleaxed and during the course of the day could be found in various nooks and crannies around the hospital staring just like that at tiles, vending machines and old cigarette boxes.

    The other chap is the doctor. Athina, you’ve already met and, just at the bottom of the shot, Sophie Helen.

    Later that day (just after we meet the doctor) we’re allowed home. Which gives us all the excuse we need to start playing dress-up with our new toy:

    october-10th-at-home2 october-10th-at-home3 october-10th-at-home

    So there you have it: the opening hours of Sophie Helen’s life after a gruelling 41 week wait.
