Karaoke Singers

Anyone looking to employ karaoke singers should know that there are some new rules in place courtesy of the Minister of Labor and Transmigration and Regulation No. PER.02/MEN/III/2008.

The new rules will require an employer to have the written permission of the Director for the Control of Exploitation of Foreign Labor. This permission will only be granted where the employer submits a business license for a business that owns karaoke facilities, a valid plan for the exploitation of the foreign labor in question, the payment of any compensation fees, a copy of an insurance policy, and a work contract.


The maximum period of time a permit will be granted for is six months and it cannot be renewed.


For every foreign karaoke specialist employed, the employer is under an obligation to employ five Indonesian karaoke specialists.


Perhaps this does not interest any of my loyal readers as you are probably not big karaoke fans! But if you are then at least now you will have a discussion starter next time you are enjoying the talents of either a foreign or Indonesian karaoke specialist!

Hey Rob,

Is one of the specialities of a karaoke specialist actually singing?? Just wondering, as I have been given the impression that holding the "mic" is their main talent.
Cheers

The "mic"...I don't recall you writing about that (mic holding skills) with regards to your recent karaoke experience :)

How was the surfing safari? My knowledge of surfing does not extend beyond "puberty blues" and the ol' shaggin' wagon!

Damn it, just as i was about to move back to jakarta and become a karaoke specialist, this new rules appears. I guess I have to use my skills elsewhere, then.

Hi Rob,

That experience was a teaming building one including our female colleagues, we had no "mic" holding support.

Like most of the girls in Puberty Blues, it was pretty flat and easy to ride. The Shaggin' wagon, the F*ck Truck, the root ute showing the age now!!!!!!!

Cheers

Hey you are rocketing up the IM rankings I see. Whats the secret?

GJ said...

Rima,

gj, can i be a karaoke specialist cum masseur? (but no padlocks please.) are there any rules that might disadvantage a woman with an array of talents like me? lol

Rob Baiton said...

GJ...

Gotta say no frackin' idea! I have not been paying any money or anything...maybe something to do with a technocrati rank?

Yep, the age shows with the descriptions of the chariots of love...but the root ute was the only way a city boy was gonna get laid at a B & S ball, right?

Rima...

I am not sure I would have described my skills as a karaoke specialist "cum" masseur as it sounds too much like a happy ending on both fronts :)

A woman with an array of talents like yours (I am basing this on you saying you had an array of talents) is sure to go a loooooong way! :)))

rimafauzi said...

a looong way i shall go then, rob..
;)

GJ said...
