Hi guys, just closed in on a house and am wondering if anyone knows a good landscape designer? It's not a huge garden out in the frontyard but pretty substantial that it needs a good green design. If anyone knows or have used one would be greatly appreciated for a name/number.  Yhanks!

Can anybody suggest any residential cleaning services businesses? Need to do a major cleanup this week with our place getting inundated because of the recent floods. Nothing major, but a good part of our furniture was immersed in about 50cm of water. We left abroad over last weekend only to return to Jakarta yesterday to find this mess.

Hi, What's the take on Bandung? I've been in touch with many people working in Jakarta who live in Bandung and stay here between Monday to Thursday/Friday and go back home. Many live in a small kost (boarding room) since they spend most of the time at work and commuting anyway. I have been to Bandung on weekends, but it is really crowded, not much different to Jakarta. Why are people flocking there, apart from the cooler weather?

One of my fav beige coloured handbags was badly stained by coffee yesterday. I tried to clean it with wet wipes but it seems to have made things worse.  Looking for a handbag cleaning service that is reliable and has good results. Can anyone here give me some pointers please?

I've been a big fan of IKEA since moving to Southeast Asia. Does anybody know when it is going to open in Jakarta, and where? There's JYSK  I know from other friends in Taman Angrek, but I'm holding out to get my IKEA furnishings.

I want to help a friend who is very busy yet insists she keeps her privacy at the apartment, which isn't serviced, and not keep a maid or even someone coming in regularly to clean the house. We are aware of different cleaning service businesses. Are they reliable and can they staff be trusted alone in the apartment? any experiences (good and bad) don't hesitate to share please.

today we've seen some especially heavy raining around our place. The house we rented has a leaking roof and I want to get it repaired before the rainy season sets in. Landlord says he'll find one for us, but I'd rather fix it fast and give him the bill instead.  If anyone has a good handyman who comes on call please let me know here or send a private message.

Hi all, For those who are renting their own place here and furnishing their house/apartment. Is there a suggestion whether to use water heaters with the conventional type or those with the solar panels? If the latter, what's a good brand and where is the best place to find them?

Couple days ago I was invited by my friend's cousin to his house. I was impressed looking at his collection of Borneo handcrafted sofa set, way antique! He said he got it from furniture craftsman in Kalimantan. Too far to hunt, I think. Yet so worthy to have. I may not be gonna buy the sofa set, rockery certainly fair enough for me. In Jakarta, I don't know where to get it, surely somewhere it's just I don't know. I need anyone of you to share your idea about this. So much appreciate it. Thank you.

I've been to Mercure Hotel in South Jakarta last week and "distracted" by the mural design they have for each room and the rooftop bar. I asked the staff, they told me the Jakartan artists did it. I imagine my room will be more comfortable and artistic if I have some kind of mural paint. Is there any contactable person I can call for this mural work? How much would it cost anyway?
