The Kardashians’ Flying Commercial Is a Sight to Behold

By Mariah Smith

After a short hiatus, the Kardashian family has reclaimed our Sunday night to teach us a thing or two about how tragic our family vacations are compared to theirs. And, if you’re anything like me, you’re ready to get lost in a past where the Kardashian family is frolicking in Bali so as to not remember that we live in a present where Kanye West is selling expensive church merch.

On this week’s episode the A-plot was Kourtny POOSH-ing Khloés buttons; our B-plot was the family’s trip to Bali; and our C-plot was the leftover Jenners in Calabasas. #LEGGO

Scene 3:

The stars of this future Emmy-nominated series treated us to another extravaganza featuring our favorite family trapped in a villa in a far away land. This year, that land is Bali. For the last six months, the word “Bali” has rung in our ears, from early media reports of the family’s trip, to teasers for the show, and then each mention of the trip that was crammed into the first two episodes. This episode has the family beginning its journey like peasants, flying commercial, taking up the entirety of United Airlines’ First Class cabin for an 18-hour flight to Indonesia. It’s the eve of Kimberly’s 38th birthday, and because it will mostly be spent in the air, she’s choosing not to acknowledge the fact that she’s a year older. United didn’t get this message though, so they’ve strung up “Happy Birthday” banners in the aisle and provided a cake and bottles of Champagne for the mile-high occasion. Even though Kim is never seen sipping on the sweet sustenance provided by the airline, we do see her son, Saint, wielding a knife to try to cut his own piece of cake in the galley.


While the toddler handles a knife just steps away from the cockpit, Khloé is frustrated with her job as a nanny on the trip. Before the family took off, Khloé expressed concern over flying so far and for such a long flight with True, and she’s so stressed she ends up being the only one who remains awake with True and her sisters’ children. In the dark, illuminated only by the blessed glow of a cabin overhead light, Khloé corrals the kids and plays games with them while Kourtney gets 15 hours of beauty rest. This scene was filmed on October 20, 2018 and October 21, 2018.

Scene 6/Scene 7:

In what seems to be an attempt at getting a Travel Channel spin-off, we’re treated to more and more and more footage of the family traveling to Bali. Don’t get me wrong, it is fascinating to see the family, which often flies private, struggle with the space constraints of commercial planes, but watching people board planes doesn’t exactly make appointment TV. In any case, once they are freed from their 18-hour journey, the Kardashian-Jenner-West-Webster-Thompsons wait in a lounge for their second flight. Kourtney, now rested, plays on her phone while Khloé tries to keep True from being yanked out of her arms by Mason. She’s used as a jungle gym for the younger children while their parents look on. Noticeably irritated, Khloé reminds her nieces and nephews that True is “just a baby,” in hopes that they simmer down now and find it in their souls to finally fall asleep.

As Khloé struggles with her transition into Mary Poppins, Kourtney, in her confessional, proudly tells the camera how amazing it is to travel with her kids now that they’re older. Khloé’s trying to hold her tongue instead of lashing out on Kourtney’s hands-off approach to parenting, because the sisters made a pact to not get angry with one another this trip. Once they’re on their final plane, Kim is greeted by more birthday decorations, and though Kourtney is not tired, she’s still not happy.


Looking through her makeup bags, Kourtney tells Scott and Khloé that her assistant is going to get a stern talking to, because she didn’t pack her travel cosmetics properly. Even though there was an inventory list of every item that should go in every bag, somehow Kourtney has too many lip liners and lipsticks that are too similar in shades! Pulling out each makeup item to really drive her point home, Kourtney then decides to email her assistant right then and there with her grievance. Khloé and Scott are mesmerized by her ability to get so upset by cosmetics, and Khloé tells her sister that she should just pack her own makeup bags. Kourtney snips that she hates doing it, and Khloé agrees that if you’re paying someone to do something for you they should do it properly. Scott, sits in silence, possibly praying that Sofia Richie doesn’t know how to count and identify colors as well as Kourt and that they will never face this same issue. This scene was filmed on October 21, 2018.

















Scene 10:

The family has finally reached its Villa in Bali, and the adults sit down for a meal. Khloé is tired and frustrated that a crew member lied and told her True’s belongings were already situated in their room, when in fact they weren’t. She tries to relax, while Kim tells her sisters how excited she is for daily tea ceremonies and the chance to find some peace. Kourtney agrees, saying she wants to do some serious soul searching and mentions that Khloé should do the same. This sets Khloé off.

Khloé, already upset with Kourtney’s lack of help during the trip, is furious that her sister thinks she’s the one who needs some emotional help. She tells Kourtney that simply saying this is not “a good soul thing to say.” Kourtney tries to claim that she was joking, and mentions that she’s the chill one since Khloé got mad about her bags the minute they landed. Khloé tells Kourtney that she’s “on crack” if she thinks she’s chill, and at least Khloé got upset over something involving her child and not something involving her makeup bag. Still, Kourtney laughs this off, assuming Khloé’s anger is temporary or rooted in this one issue. As her sisters fight, Kim tells the table that she’s going to take a mental Xanax. Not a real one because the kids are there, but a mental once, which, okay.

Scott, looks on at the sisters, happy to be invited back into the family trip fold, and jokes that he “misses” their international bickering. After letting just a hint of her rage out on Kourtney, Khloé storms out. This scene was filmed on October 21, 2018, which we know because Khloé is still in her travel attire, and Kim’s hair is still bone straight.








Scene 15:

Not to alarm you, but while the Kardashian sisters and Scott are in Bali, life is still going on back in Calabasas. Left behind due to various types of work, lunches, and parties, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris Jenner enjoy a meal with one another. Kris tries to talk to her girls, who constantly talk over her as they breakdown the early 2000’s look Kendall wore at Drake’s birthday party the night before. Kylie loved Kendall’s look when she saw it in a video, but told her sister that the photos made her hair look “awko-taco.”

After they’re done dissecting Kendall’s costume, Kylie and Kris claim to be twins due to a set of diamond earrings. Kris was just gifted hers by Corey, and Kylie has been eyeing the same pair, but with a pink diamond. It’s beginning to seem that it’s impossible for the three women to speak to one another as a group, so while Kris and Kylie converse, Kendall hops on her phone to call her grandmother, MJ.


A few weeks ago, MJ felt disconnected from Kris, and now Kendall has called to tell MJ that she and Kylie took Kris out so she could get some break time from all of her distracting responsibilities. No, this doesn’t create any real bonding time for Kris and her mother, but Kendall follows up by telling MJ that she and Kylie will hang out with her a little more often. MJ loves this! And, so does Kris. She’s glad to share the responsibility of keeping MJ company. This scene was filmed on October 24, 2018.








Scene 16:

Back in Bali, a heavily bronzed Khloé attempts to have a nice conversation with Kourtney. Khloé’s trying to work out some scheduling issues she’s having with Tristan. He hasn’t seen True in weeks, and because Khloé agreed to do a Halloween photo shoot with her sisters, she has to stay in Los Angeles for one more day, delaying her trip to see Tristan in Cleveland.

Khloé says she’ll do the shoot, but tells Kourtney that she’s not excited to spend her Sunday in glam for an at-home photo shoot that’s just for Instagram. Kourtney tells Khloé that this issue sounds personal, and as she’s a “grown woman with a child,” she could have easily said no. Now Kourtney’s annoyed at Khloé’s complaints, and Khloé’s annoyed that Kourtney’s allowed to vent but she isn’t. They just aren’t seeing eye to eye, and each sister thinks the other’s problems are pointless. This scene seems to have been filmed on October 22, 2018, the sister’s second night in Bali.






Scene 17:

Taking a break from their villa, the family boards an old pirate ship / yacht for some light swimming and heavy Instagramming. In between Mason taking shots of his scantily clad mother on a ladder and Kim walking the literal plank for the ‘gram, the family enjoys the luxury of yacht life — a staple of any family vacation, Khloé mentions. Khloé’s got “no tolerance” for Kourtney and since they still aren’t on great terms, Khloé minds her business and generally hangs out with True while Scott, Kim, and Kourtney jump off of the yacht into the ocean. This scene was filmed near the beginning of their Bali trip on or around October 24, 2018.












Scene 24:

On the advice of her mother, Khloé asks Kourtney if they can have a chat. Kourtney agrees, and the sisters head to the beach for their reconciliation. Khloé acknowledges that when they try to communicate with one another, they both get defensive and she’ll try to be aware of that more going forward. However, she tells Kourtney that sometimes she doesn’t think before she speaks, or she’ll act both passive and passive aggressively. Kourtney says that it’s probably because she’s rarely paying attention, which is exactly what Khloé thinks, too. Khloé doesn’t think that Kourtney has any malicious intent, but by not thinking, her actions seem … malicious. Kourtney says she’ll be more present and she thanks Khloé for helping to raise everyone’s kids because it’s a “nice thing.” The sisters resolved their issues on or around October 26, 2018.

Yudhoyono, Habib Organization Call for National Unity After Prabowo's 'People's Power' Threat

Yudhoyono, Habib Organization Call for National Unity After Prabowo's 'People's Power' Threat


BY : FANA SUPARMAN & MUHAMAD AL AZHARI

APRIL 19, 2019


Jakarta. Presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto said in a speech during yet another victory declaration on Friday that people would take to the streets if his camp found that the quick-count results of the April 17 presidential election had been manipulated.

During a gathering in South Jakarta, the former Army general claimed for the fourth time in two days that he had won the 2019 presidential election, based on data compiled by his campaign team. The gathering was initially planned for the Istiqlal Mosque, the country's largest, in Central Jakarta, but later moved out of respect for Christians celebrating Good Friday, which is a public holiday in Indonesia. The mosque is across the road from the Jakarta Cathedral.

"If there are clear efforts to infringe on the people's rights, we won't accept it. We, all of us, will take action in accordance with the Constitution," Prabowo said during the "Gratitude for Victory in the 2019 Presidential Election" event at his family residence in Jalan Kertanegara.

In what appears to have been a subtle call on supporters to prepare for mass action, he said Indonesia's 1945 Constitution guarantees the right of all citizens to gather in the streets and express their opinions.

However, he called on supporters not to be provoked by narratives from those he claimed are planning to disrupt the national unity. "There is nothing wrong with us upholding justice. We want truth and justice!" he said.

Yudhoyono Raises Concern

Democratic Party chairman Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who is an influential ally of Prabowo, warned members of his party on Friday not to commit any unconstitutional acts. He also ordered those serving on Prabowo's campaign team to return to the party's headquarters to consolidate.

The former president is still in Singapore, where his wife is currently receiving medical treatment.

"Regarding the political situation after the election, which shows increasing tension and could lead to a dangerous political and security situation, I instruct all officials ... to continue monitoring closely what is happening in the motherland," Yudhoyono reportedly said.

'Habib Organization' Calls for Unity

Habib Zen bin Smith, chairman of Rabithah Alawiyah, an organization for habib, or Islamic scholars from the Sayyid community, who are descendants of the Prophet Muhammad, released a statement on Friday calling for national unity in Indonesia, the world's biggest Muslim-majority country.

"Whatever the results, we must maintain ukhuwah [a brotherly spirit]. Elections are important, but what is more important, is to maintain our unity as a nation," he said.

Meanwhile, in response to Prabowo's apparent call for mass action, Indonesian Military (TNI) chief Air Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto warned that the military would not tolerate any moves that may disturb the peace.

He said the military and police would maintain stability while the vote-counting process is underway.

He was speaking at a press conference attended by National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian and high-level military and police officials at the offices of Chief Security Minister Wiranto.

"The Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia is non-negotiable," Hadi said.

Early results show President Joko Widodo take a lead in Indonesia's elections

Bali & World News and Views Editor's Comments:

From the exit polls and first counts it appears most likely that Indonesia's President Joko Widodo we will continue for another term.

Unless there is a major change in the coming hours Indonesia can look forward to another four years of prosperous growth, improvement in corruption and become The Roaring Lion that I've always said it would become.

After living and prospering here for 22 years I am convinced that business in Indonesia will improve rapidly in the next few years, especially tourism and real estate which I am involved in.

My wife and I just purchased our first real estate that I purchased in Bali for over 10 years.

I was one of the first foreigners in Bali to invest heavily in real estate in 2002 and have seen dramatic growth up until 2014 when I became bearish.

In 2017 I came out of semi-retirement and coined the saying "This is the second best time to buy Bali real estate this Century".

All my recent research have proven that my predictions are coming true once again.

Now that it appears we have a stable government for the next four years's it's time for everyone to begin to invest again in what may provide profits of 20% - 150% in the next 3 to 10 years

If you'd like to learn everything you need to know about investing in Bali real estate you're welcome to come to my free seminars Next week in Bali.

Early results show President Joko Widodo takes a lead in Indonesia's elections


By Helen Regan, Julia Hollingsworth and Sarah Faidell, CNN


Updated 0906 GMT (1706 HKT) April 17, 2019




A supporter of incumbent Indonesian president Joko Widodo holds up a T-shirt with Widodo's portrait during an election rally on the final day of campaigning in Jakarta on April 13, 2019.

(CNN)Partial early results from the Indonesian election show incumbent President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo taking a lead over longtime rival and former military strongman Prabowo Subianto.
An initial count of Wednesday's ballots put Jokowi on around 55% of the vote, with Prabowo winning around 44%.
Most pre-election opinion polls had given Jokowi a double-digit lead, though he had copped criticism from analysts and former supporters who say he has failed to deliver on issues such as human rights -- and compromised his values of pluralism to score political points.
Final official results will be announced by May 22.

Joko Widodo: Has the shine worn off Indonesia's Obama?
Some 192.8 million people were eligible to vote across the archipelago's 17,000 islands in what is the world's biggest direct presidential election.
It's been billed as one of the most complicated single-day ballots ever under taken. For the first time, Indonesia held its presidential and legislative elections on the same day, with more than 245,000 candidates running for over 20,000 seats. More than 800,000 polling stations and six million election workers helped to pull it off.
Only the Indian elections are bigger (with 900 million people eligible to vote) and they are held over a period of almost six weeks. Indonesia's elections take place over just six hours.

A logistical feat spanning mountains and jungles


An Indonesian election worker on horseback transports ballot boxes and election material to a remote village in Jember, East Java on April 15, 2019.
Indonesians were actually asked to casting five ballots -- for the president and vice-president, for members of the 575-seat House of Representatives, for the Regional Representative Council (or Senate), provincial legislators, and district and city councils.
Polling began at 7 a.m. local time and voters had until 1 p.m. to cast their ballots before polls closed and the counting started.
Ensuring this mega-poll in the world's third largest democracy would go off without a hitch was a logistical feat, with election workers traveling by boat to remote islands, scaling mountains to reach hill-top villages and trekking through jungles -- sometimes on horses -- to bring ballot boxes within range of every voter.
"The logistics of this election are fiendishly complicated," said Ben Bland, director of the Southeast Asia Project at the Lowy Institute.
"Indonesians are spread over hundreds if not thousands of islands, many of these places are very remote and mountain villages, you have to access some places by small boats, on foot in some cases. And remember that many different areas have different ballots because they're voting for different local candidates," said Bland.
"So for the election commission to get all these thousands of different kinds of ballot paper to 800,000 polling stations across Indonesia is a real geographical and logistical feat."


Indonesian election officials transport ballot boxes to a remote village by boat along a river in Manggamat, Southern Aceh province on April 16, 2019.
But there has also been reported allegations of voting irregularities, with Prabowo and his team claiming there were voter lists that included names of the dead and those not eligible to vote and vowing to take action if their concerns were ignored. The Election Commission is investigating the claims.
Indonesia's election watchdog has called for a revote for more than 300,000 Indonesians living in neighboring Malaysia because officials discovered invalid ballots, which were punched by non-voters, and other uncast ballots.
"There is convincing proof that the Overseas Election Committee in Kuala Lumpur did not carry out its task of conducting the 2019 election objectively, transparently and professionally," the election committee said in a statement.
It comes after video purportedly showed pre-marked ballot papers for Jokowi in Malaysia.
While Indonesia is a relatively new democracy following the fall of the Suharto regime in 1998, Bland said the nation has a "pretty good track record" of keeping the election free and fair.
"Its important to understand just how hard it is for countries transitioning from authoritarianism to democracy to do so successfully, and how hard it is in a big developing country to hold successful elections," he said, citing Nigeria and Afghanistan which have delayed their elections because of logistical problems.
"Meanwhile in Thailand there's an impasse at the moment because of uncertainties of the counting process and the role of the military government in that so I think Indonesia deserves credit for the way its built up a pretty resilient election system," he said.

The challengers
Polls suggest that Jokowi, 57, is likely to win a second term. A former furniture salesman, Jokowi became mayor of Surakarta in 2005 and then Jakarta governor in 2012.
In 2014, he campaigned on a promise of creating jobs, bolstering human rights and cracking down on corruption. The public was sold and swept in the self-styled man-of-the-people over his military strongman opponent, Prabowo, now 67.

Once again, Jokowi was competing against Prabowo, a retired army general and son-in-law of former president and authoritarian dictator Suharto. His running mate is Sandiaga Uno, a businessman and vice governor of Jakarta who was named by Forbes in 2013 as Indonesia's 47th richest man, with an estimated net worth of $460 million.
During campaigning, Prabowo seized on his rival's economic failings, slamming Jokowi for allowing food prices to rise and calling for better quality jobs.
Jokowi's choice of Ma'ruf Amin, a hardline Muslim cleric for his running mate, may have bolstered his religious credentials by appealing to Islamic hardliners that have traditionally supported Prabowo. But it could have also turn off some those who voted for him in 2014 for his commitment to religious freedom.

Youth vote
Some 80 million 18-35 year-olds -- about 40% of the electorate -- were eligible to cast a ballot this year and both candidates have made efforts to appeal to them.
Jokowi beamed a hologram of himself around the nation, featured his pet goat on social media, and made references to the television show "Game of Thrones."
Prabowo, meanwhile, focused on issues such as unemployment which are likely to appeal to younger voters who are struggling with an unemployment rate of about 15.8%, according to World Bank figures.
"Millennials are very important to the two candidates," said Hasanuddin Ali, chief executive of research company Alvara Research Center. "Millennial voters are also a key success factor in the Indonesian election."

Indonesia election: violence-wracked province calls for independence
But it could prove a hard sell. Analysts say there is widespread disengagement from young people towards politics and they are put off by high levels of corruption and distrust in the system.
"Some don't feel like they're being equally represented," said Ella Prihatini, an academic with the Center for Muslim States and Societies at the University of Western Australia.
Others are concerned that minority rights continue to be eroded -- over the past few years police raids and vigilante attacks on members of the LGBT community have increased and last year the country made moves to criminalize homosexual sex.
"I think it's unfair to expect LGBT Indonesians to vote when we're not even considered a part of this nation," said Amahl Sharif Azwar, a 32-year-old gay Indonesian freelance writer who lives in Thailand.

According to PT. B.A.L.I., one of Bali's leading real estate experts for the past 15 years, who have thousands of satisfied clients, this is the “Second best time to purchase Bali Real Estate this century”.

“Second best time to purchase Bali Real Estate this century”.

They believe that recent changes in real estate laws for foreigners allowing them to obtain control of Bali Real Estate for more than a normal lifetime is creating a huge new demand for Indonesian and Bali Real Estate. Coupled with the fact that Bali Real Estate has just undergone the first correction in modern history with prices down as much as 50 % this has set the stage for *increases of 20 % to 100 % the next three to five years.
