Indonesia: Ethnic Chinese Perform Thank You Indonesia

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

top chinese artist Indonesia is already applying law no. 40, established last year to end discrimination against minorities and ethnic groups in the country.

To show their gratitude, the Indonesia-Chinese Forum and the Indonesia National Institute will hold a musical drama titled, Thank You Indonesia this Friday at the Jakarta International Expo.

[Murdaya W. Poo, Indonesia Nationality Institute Chairman]:
The validity of this law set on October 28, 2008 is an amazing prize for Indonesia people, mainly the Chinese people in Indonesia. Its an amazing red envelope. Now Chinese people can freely interact with the other 300 ethnic goups in Indonesia. This is an amazing issue.

Both Indonesian and Chinese art and culture are combined in the show. The drama will illustrate how ethnic Chinese people now have the same rights as Indonesian citizens. Many top artists will perform, including Titiek Puspa, Iga Mewarni, Helena, Judika Idol, and Koko-Cici Jakarta.

[Titiek Puspa, Musical Drama Artist]:
We feel thankful to the government, which already published the law. Like well perform how the Javanese peoples conflict with the Batak people. How every ethnicity is in some conflict. At the end, I come in to stop this conflict; I tell them that nowadays there is a new law. Now we have the same rights and duties.

Indonesia President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono plans to watch the drama. He will probably receive much appreciation from the ethnic-Chinese at the show.

I need to sell my breeding budgies and aviary but I don’t know how much to ask?

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Basically I’m so busy these days I don’t have the time to do this anymore..
I have a large aviary handmade out of wood it’s about 1.75metre x 1x metre and 2 metres high.
17 Breeding budgies all colours, and 3 nest boxes with 5 newborns in each.
3 Breeding chinese painted quail
All feeders perches etc.

I really have no time top continue with this hobby..nor the room.

I’m going to advertise them in the local classifieds but would like to know what would be a reasonable price for the lot?

Thanks.
Before anyone thinks I’m cruel…this was ment to be a joint hobby with a friend but he has not once help clean them out or buy food for the last year.

Hi,

I completely understand. My friend and I were going to be a hobby breeders, and split the costs, but she backed out of it, and I’m still doing it by myself.

You need to wait until the breeding pairs with babies raise there babies and can eat on their own, because you can’t sell the parents until then.

Each pair can be about twenty to thirty five dollars, including a nest box. I don’t know if the aviary is built in your yard, but if it isn’t, it depends on how many birds can fit in it comfortably.
