Australia x Indonesia short comic taking place in the modern day. As well as a promotion for Indonesia tourism industry. :iconheplz:
Big thanks to :iconsiripikan: :icongolden-butterflysky: :iconmisschocoholic: :iconhistory-booknerd: :iconshikiren96: :iconkaigaazuko: :iconnewseniorgenius: :iconkiasukid: for their info about Borneo, Kalimantan, Kadazan, Dayak, etc.

Please visit Kalimantan or more commonly known in English speaking countries as Borneo. You can use Kalimantan Tour Destinations (KTD) to get access to Central Kalimantan, Borneo.

Kalimantan Tour Destinations (KTD) unique cruise boats take you along meandering jungle lined rivers, passing islands with orang utans visible in the trees and the briliant splashes of kites, hornbills and kingfishers overhead. Further upstream visit villages and meet the inhabitants dependent on the jungle and the river for their livelihoods. ([link])


=> Australians, Why Study Indonesian?

Indonesian gives you access to one of the most interesting and important areas of the world. Indonesia is spread over more than 13,000 islands and has a population of approximately 240 million. Over 500 languages are spoken in this area, and there are at least as many different ethnic groups. It is the largest Muslim country in the world, but also has significant Christian, Hindu and Buddhist populations. Because of its size and location, it is an important member of the international community. As a travel destination, Indonesia is an enjoyable and affordable place to visit. These days thousands of Australians visit Indonesian regions such as Bali, Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi islands annually, and thousands more live happily in Indonesia.

Indonesia is on Australia's doorstep. As our nearest Asian neighbour, a major trading partner and crucial strategic ally, Indonesia is important for Australia's future:

Australia’s relationship with Indonesia is comprehensive, it is dynamic, it is economic, it is in foreign policy and it is in security policy, and in all these domains, the potential is vast. We are ambitious for the future of our relationship (Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, House of Representatives, Canberra, March 2010).

Australia and Indonesia have become better nations, stronger nations, because we have each other for a friend and partner. We will get stronger and we will together contribute more to the peace, security and equitable prosperity of our region and the world in the years ahead. We will do that by faithfully pursuing our enhanced, comprehensive partnership (President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, House of Representatives, Canberra, March 2010).

Indonesia is growing quite quickly. Within about 10 years, it could easily have a stronger economy than Australia's (Hugh White, Visiting Fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy and Professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University, March 2010).

Indonesian is easier for beginners than many other languages. For several reasons, it is easy for beginners to reach a general level of competence in Indonesian. It uses a 'phonetic' Latin alphabet, has no tenses or conjugation of verbs, or many of the other grammatical features that can make initial progress in a foreign language difficult, although mastering its affixes may require some extra work at formal higher levels.

Indonesian is a form of Malay (generally, speakers of Indonesian can communicate with Malay speakers), a language spoken in a number of other countries. Malay is also the national language of Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam and Singapore. It is also spoken by minority communities in Southern Thailand and other areas of the world.
