“Didien suspects a certain ‘A’ ”
Does the ‘A’ stand for alien? Alien conspiracy theory. That makes sense.
I like Td’s theory best..Ariel was dipping his wick fairly widely and with some well placed trophy wives and girlfriends (Can you blame them, have you seen some of the sleazy horrors they have to put with?).
Anyway, one of the sexual failure sugar daddies was a bit miffed and does what any well placed sleaziod in Indonesia does..slip a few bucks to the right people and ..presto..problem solved.
Speaking of conspiracies.. flew into Jakarta from OS about a week ago and by curious turn of fate got into a car instead of the bus. Next thing three badly dressed “pilots” got into the car as well. Stop at the terminal and one of the “pilots” palmed the driver $100USD (“that’s weird – thinks I” nobody tips these guys).
Well bugger me silly and call me bruce! He had been paid to drop us at the domestic terminal completely bypassing immigration (which explains the $100 bucks I guess). Of course, that left me on the wrong side of immigration with an unstamped passport and my bags on the on the wrong side as well but thats another adventure..
Oh that’s a good corruption story Oigal, I like that one! Mine are all really boring factoids, like that it costs Rp150 million to become a state-level civil servant, and that a certain East Java department allegedly has a serious black magic problem in the promotion ladder (I kid you not).
My only other related story is the one about a buxom bule lass of my sometime acquaintance, Ariel and a five star hotel in Surabaya, but I’ve told that one before (several times) and it makes me sound pretty lame if that’s my only celebrity connection in Indonesia (it pretty much is, as far as I can remember, apart from briefly hanging out with Steven from Steven and the Coconut Trees, but that’s low, man, really low…)…
But yes, the “dalang” theory about poor old Ariel does strike me as convincing (not quite as convincing as Mossad being to blame, but then Mossad being to blame is the most convincing explanation for everything, right?).
What I want to know is WHO is doing the puppeteering?
While I don’t like Peter Pan’s music I hold Ariel in high regard since becoming famous for his sexual endeavours.
Can’t say much for the sugar daddy miffed theory…but the airport story is true 100%, wish I had woken up earlier to what was going on but I was playing the part of the dumb bule without a clue and didn’t even know it until it was too late..
Would have been nice to sneak some pictures and post to find who these guys were..
well, what they’re saying here in Bandung is that he tangles with the wrong lass, the girlfriend from a jakartan big shot godfather mafiadon i forget his name apparently he’s pretty famous…
Hey MR..Sounds reasonable, it’s more likely that than the JOOWS…(Hehe)..Although it could be part of a bigger plan to make Indonesia the laughing stock of the world. You put together Ariel, major corruptors ducking out of goal and going to the tennis to meet the largest, scaliest piece of corporate cancer in Indonesia, the twittering fool claiming Mrs Obama forced herself on him and we do have a pattern here…
Dang..its almost worth a post..
madrotter – that’s it! that’s the story I keep hearing! You’re the first other bule who’s mentioned it! alhamdulillah! But it sounds like they’re more clued in in Bandung if they have a name for the Dalang, because in the eastern half of the island it’s just a “someone”… Remember the name mister!
Oigal, as for whether the joosdiddit, I’ve always wondered about Ariel’s name, sharing it with an obese, now brain-dead probable war criminal Israeli, and what-not…
madrotter – that’s it! that’s the story I keep hearing!
Mind you, it has a degree of finess that has been lacking previously..the ol kasih a drink of poison orange juice on an international flight and hope no one will notice was to say the least inept. On the plus side it does feed into the international laughing stock conspiracy theory, locked plane, manifest of suspects and hand phone records yet it is still beyond us to solve the crime..sheesh!
i’ll ask around, all i remember is that he’s one of the biggies in jakarta and he’s pissed off
Well in my search around for this post I didn’t come across any of the timdog/madrotter theory, which gives me the opportunity to use this picture that I’ve been dying to use for ages:
or it could be that I should have spent more than ten minutes looking, or I need to learn the Indonesian for ‘cuckolded’.
hahaha nice one! i think it’s all revenge from the people in sidoarjo. they’re using a dukun. to punish ariel for bonking mother earth in a weak spot. at that moment.
“or I need to learn the Indonesian for ‘cuckolded’.”
No need to go that far, David. Just try googling for a businessman with initial TW. Not that I believe in this gossip, tho. It’s only good to distract people’s attention from some humiliating bribery cases involving Polri. But good luck, anyway.
Ah We have initials now…:-)
What can I say, a conspiracy theory is never complete without initials : UFO, NWO, JFK, CIA, even AIDS and HIV…
