Actually quite helpful. Although it doesn't translate 100% to Singapore, it's a good video for friends thinking of going to Indo.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

I've seen this before, she is quite funny the way she imitates indonesians
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Yeah, love her "How to act Indonesian" videos. And I've yet to find an Indonesian I've shown who was offended. Similar videos about Singapore would have the poor bule/ang moh forced into hiding.

Yup, will never find a video from ang moh talking about life in Singapore. But you will always find a locally-made video featuring an ang moh talking about life in Singapore.

Because Indonesians have a sense of humor.

Should I say Singaporeans' reaction to such, if they do, maybe mild .. compared to .. pinas?

Actually if you read the comments below, many Indonesians do not appreciate her sense of humour, saying stuff in Bahasa Indonesia like "Go back to the hole where you crawl from".

she is very unpopular because she uncovers all those things Indonesians don't want the outside world to see.
Kudos to her though, a lot of people who decide to move to Indonesia know exactly what to expect when they arrive there.

Well, of the dozen or so Indonesians I've shown them to they all laugh their asses off. The demographic is a bit skewed towards young and female though.
