My Experience Buying from Amazon in Indonesia (2019)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
I have bought countless goods on Amazon over the years (books, toys, air purifier, pollution masks , etc) and had them shipped to Indonesia, in Jakarta or Bali, without any difficulties. In spite of this, I know quite many expats who are still not confident using the website. That's a shame because there are still many products that are hard to find in Indonesia, especially if you live in smaller cities. Amazon also has competitive prices (in particular on its " Today's Deals " page) and it is much safer to use than local alternatives like Lazada or Tokopedia. If you are still hesitating, this guide will explain everything you need to know about buying on Amazon from Indonesia and why you should not worry about it. I will answer common questions like: - Is it safe to ship from Amazon to Indonesia? - What kind of products should you avoid buying on Amazon for Indonesia? - What is the AmazonGlobal shipping program and how does it work? - Does A

12 Best Online Dating Sites and Apps in Vietnam (2019)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Meeting a girl in Vietnam has never been easier thanks to the Internet. Plenty of dating websites and apps have been launched in the past 10 years, giving you access to thousands of single Vietnamese girls from all backgrounds. For guys, Vietnam is like a treasure chest. Just upload a few decent pictures of yourself, write an interesting profile, and you are normally guaranteed to match with hundreds of pretty and smart girls. There is a catch, though: 95% of Vietnamese girls are looking for serious relationships, so forget about easy one night stands. It may happen from time to time, but that's not the best country for that (check my article Best Countries to Meet Girls in Asia ). I've used all the dating apps and sites available in Vietnam. In this article, I'll tell you which ones work the best, whether you are an expat, a traveler, a Vietnamese or even someone who's never been in the country.

Finding a Sugar Baby or a Sugar Daddy in Singapore

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
"Sugar dating" is booming in Singapore, both among men and women. The country is currently the 3rd richest in the world per capita, meaning there are plenty of wealthy guys who can afford to support a girl and/or to buy her expensive gifts. At the same time, Singaporean girls are famously materialistic and many are actively looking for a partner with deep pockets. They may not care if a guy is handsome or ugly, but they will certainly want to know his job, his position or his income before considering going on a date with him. Singapore is also home to tens of thousands of foreign girls, especially from nearby Southeast Asian countries like the Philippines, Indonesia or Thailand. For many of them, dating a wealthy foreigner can be a life-changing situation and the promise of a better future back home. This combination of rich guys + money-oriented girls has made Singapore a fertile ground for sugar dating to develop. It's no surprise that the founder o

"Sugar dating" is booming all over Asia, and this is particularly true in Japan. In Tokyo, which is regularly ranked among the most expensive cities in the world, a growing number of young women are joining dating clubs or sugar baby websites, hoping they can find a man who can support them financially. For guys, especially those with comfortable revenues, it is a way to simplify the dating process and to find girls they normally don't have access to. In real life, few men in their 40s have the opportunity to meet and date a sexy student in her twenties, and sugar dating gives them a chance.

Kabuki Executive Club and Karaoke (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Kabuki is an executive club and karaoke located in Lokasari, near Jalan Mangga Besar (West Jakarta). It replaces Newton , which was a similar yet less fancy venue. It is part of the Alexis Group, which currently owns 1001, Club 36, Zen Club, Emporium and Colosseum. They lost their flagship property, Alexis, in 2018 after it was shut down by the new governor. You might actually notice that the main lounge in Kabuki looks similar to 4Play, the club that was on the first floor of Alexis. I was not able to take any photos inside Kabuki because the security put a sticker on my phone's camera. They seem to take privacy very seriously, probably to avoid having the same trouble as they had with Alexis. What happens inside is not outrageous, though. The lounge itself is medium sized, with 3 podiums in the middle, and VIP areas on the side. You have sexy dancers, but they are wearing clothes and do not perform stripteases. They can be taken to the rooms upstairs, for IDR2
