WELCOME BACK Readers!
This issue we bring you what you need to know about health and beauty in Indonesia. From an explainer on traditional medical treatments to the top salons and clinics in town, we’ve got you covered.
In the wake of a global study proving what many of us already suspected – those in Indonesia walk the least of anyone in the world – we explore why this is the case in Indonesia, as well as the benefits to both physical and mental health created by walking.
We take a look at the impact the so- called ‘sin tax’ has had on smoking and ponder if we’ll soon see a drop in smoking rates across the country, while the health care sector becomes the next big thing for foreign investors.
Finally, we have a meal at Dim Sum King, Kerry B. Collison reflects on Australia’s connection to the Pacific and we wrap up some of the country’s biggest stories over the last fortnight.
See you next time,
PS. Reader Melanie has been in touch hoping to find an English speaking paediatrician in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan. We’ve come up short, but thought we’d call on the expat community. If you can help Melanie and her family please get in touch with her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
