Some of my friends from PMI have been involved with the PMI disaster relief operations at Mentawi and Obama was in Indonesia. See Indonesisch Blog for that as well.
They distributed relief goods and helped around in Mentawi and the northern part of Bengkulu province, now most of them have returned to Bengkulu City or Curup. Others from PMI Surabaya have been involved with the relief operations around Merapi.
And to all people in Indonesia and Malaysia: Happy New Year!
