Wow! Something happened with our ASTRO decoder about a week ago and after a short phone call, a polite man came to replace it - no questions asked. The same thing happened again today and again, the same polite man came to replace it - still asking no questions. This never happens in Malaysia.
I am starting to notice that the Indonesians are, in general, a much more polite people. Also much friendlier and love little children. The people in the markets are friendly, sales people in the malls are helpful without being pushy, everyone is friendly. That is what I like about Palembang.
Hang on...the police aren't all that chummy.....but we don't meet them all that often so its ok.
