Innocent and friendly Indonesian

Those hotel employees that i met are friendly, helpful, no racial discrimination despite i'm ethnic chinese. They shake hand with us during farewell moment. One of the employee even invited me to visit Java Island with him. They are not terrosits and pirates as what we always think of.

Kid beggar, poverty, prostitution and corruption

Kid beggar: healthy kid with both hand and leg

Monthly income: Less than Singapore Dollar $200

Prostitution: Their customers mainly come from Singapore and Malaysia

Corruption: Immigration officers request extra from passengers in public.

Chinese in Indonesia

As a minority group, Chinese here is running business rather than being employed, that's why a lot of Chinese and their shop. Chinese contrubutes a lot to Indonesia, but they are discriminated especially in Java Island.
