    [MENTION=89734]clawhammers[/MENTION] Much much thanks to you! It appears to have been just another PR exercise on the whole. Incidentally, I too felt that Ami Gumelar was kinda in charge of proceedings and Taufik ceded the stage to her ;)

    I remember, a long time ago there was posted on youtube a 4-part radio interview with Taufik, that went live on a radio station in (I think) Jakarta. That interview was again -obviously- in Bahasa I think. But what stood out for me was Taufik's very thoughtful and (probably) insightful demeanour when he spoke.

    I somehow felt that especially during that particular interview, he wanted to allow the rest of the people to know his private self and his personal beliefs, philosophy and convictions. I got this from following the tone, pauses and general flow of conversation and the vocal and facial responses of his two interviewers. I could of course, be totally wrong, but somehow I don't feel I am...

    Now, if only it could be shared with the rest of the world, to whatever extent.... ;) :)

    Quite right, it's a super series and there is old guys with gray hair and 4inch glasses lens doing the lines, I would be surprised if they could even see as far as the badminton court, shocking!

    It was a famous Indonesian TV opera live show.

    These Indonesian comedians play the life of TH :D

    If I'm not mistaken, the show broadcasted a couple days ago
