Instead, as it was becoming clear on election night that Donald Trump would be the next US president, Jakartans had already started flooding social networks with satirical memes and comic relief. One viral joke showed Trump planting a kiss on the cheek of Dimas Kanjeng, a cult leader who claims he can multiply banknotes with his mind and was recently arrested on suspicion of murder . Others poked fun at Trumps relationship with Indonesias political establishment, such as former house speaker Setya Novanto, who controversially met the Republican candidate at Trump Tower in New York last September. A meme circulating on Whatsapp, to which Indonesians are partial, showed Novanto shaking hands with various figures President Joko Widodo, Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok), and at the top, Trump.

To Indonesians, the irony was clear: Novanto was forced to resign just months after he shook hands with Trump, for allegedly eliciting a roughly $4bn bribe from the countrys biggest mine. In a developing country prone to natural and manmade disasters alike, where everything from roads to institutions are often broken and politicians rarely keep their promises, Indonesians have adopted a pragmatic willingness to adapt and, above all, to see the funny side of things. We always see the silver lining in the cloud, Anwar says of the Indonesian sensibility. If you have an accident and break an arm you think, well at least I didnt break both arms.

Speak clearly and slowly while presenting. Well, it is your first and probably the last chance to create an impression and assure the potential employer about your reliability and expertise. This question is often followed by some other questions. Maintain the right posture. Men should go for the interview all groomed, with their face properly shaved, hair in place and shoes polished. Returning empty handed, without the offer letter, just because of some trivial mistake which could have been avoided with little preparation from your side can be frustrating. Your shoulders would be drooping and you would be slouching. Our face is the mirror to our emotional soul.
Do you not view me as an artist?” Bailey told him: “I totally view you as an artist,” which calmed West down. “I care about people’s time; it wasn’t on purpose,” he said. “The fact that they can outright Lebron-James-went-to-the-Heat-level burn my jersey after all I’d contributed to art, fashion, and culture just in 2016 alone ” In the middle of his diatribe, West took a sudden turn, bring up Amber Rose’s baby daddy, Wiz Khalifa. All three got into a nasty Twitter battle back in January , but it seems West has moved on. “For some reason, I just wanna say ‘Wiz [Khalifa] wears cool pants’ right now. He really does.
