If there's salaries for 3 juta/month then there has to fun ways to stretch that amount.

Coal and gas....What's the air the like, then? Are you hacking up pieces of your lungs every morning or so?

Willy, Chester, thank you both. A little sincere insight can go such a long way...like across hemispheres. All the best.
