Video of Miss Universe Leila Lopes’s recent visit to Indonesia, and also a bit of cultural lesson about the beauty perspective in the country (which is applicable to many parts of Asia) where a lighter skin colour is considered an epitome of beauty…
Miss Indonesia Nadine Alexandra is also featured with her two cents.
Trailer for Indonesian film, The Raid, which won plaudits at the Toronto Film Festival last month. Some say it’s one of the best action movie in years; and there’s also news that it’s getting a Hollywood remake. Violent content warning…
Pretty enthralling trailer. The storyline is simple – about a SWAT team being entrapped in a safe house for the world’s most dangerous assassins and gangsters. Plenty of flying bullets, close combat battle and Silat, a form of Southeast Asian martial arts.
Movie directed by Welsh born Gareth Evans and starred Iko Uwais, a real life Silat master. This is the duo’s second collaboration.
An Indonesian court has sentenced pop star Nazril Irham, better known as Ariel, to three-and-a-half years in prison after sex tapes of him with two tv celebrities appeared online.
The 29-year-old frontman of popular rock band Peterpan/Noah was found guilty for “giving an opportunity for others to spread, produce and prepare a pornographic video.”
The two videos, which were made public in June 2010, showed Ariel having sex on separate occasions with female television celebrities Luna Maya (pic) and Cut Tari, who is married to another man. Ariel has always denied distributing them, claiming that they had been stolen and uploaded without permission.
Unfortunately for him, making the clips is bad enough under the controversial Indonesian anti-pornography law which came into effect in 2008.

Malaysian authorities have cancelled the concert-permit for Indonesian singer Inul Daratista following protests from some Islamic groups.
The concert was scheduled to be held last weekend in Kuala Lumpur before being cancelled at the very last minute, largely due to complaints from Islamic groups that claimed her concert is “erotic”.
Inul is controversial with her suggestive dance moves which she called it the Goyang Inul or Gerak Gerudi (literally drilling moves). I’ll leave it for your own interpretation of how “erotic” she is with the below video (just an example)…
Some trace-back… Pussycat Dolls were fined around US$3000 last time, Gwen Stefani was told to cover up, Linkin Park were told not to “shout”… and Beyonce was smart enough to cancel her concert before the authorities could shut her door.
If this trend keeps going, lots of the foreign artists will not consider having a concert in Malaysia and favour Singapore and other neighbouring countries instead.
