Take a walk down memory lane with Coconuts Jakarta’s greatest hits at our 5th anniversary party (Oct. 16)

It’s been five fun-filled years since Coconuts Jakarta launched in 2014. We have had a blast bringing you the funniest/weirdest/most frustrating/most wondrous stories out of Indonesia, especially the capital.

We’re inviting you to celebrate our 5th Anniversary Party at Gen’s in South Jakarta on 16 October 2019, from 7pm till late. Before the party, check out five of our most popular stories ever — from a case of transnational transphobia to accidental porn on a billboard — so we can look back at the last five years with fondness, chuckles and major throwback feels:

16-year-old boy says he locks up his 71-year-old bride at home when he goes out so ‘other men won’t bother her’

Viral: Muslim woman sings soaring rendition of ‘Ave Maria’ at church funeral as a final tribute to her friend

Thai actress tells Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil she loves his city on Instagram, he replies: ‘I hope she’s not a man’ (UPDATE: He apologized & changed the caption)

Anti-vaccine hoax in Indonesia features photo of famous porn star Johnny Sins as doctor, becomes butt of jokes

Somebody put Japanese porn up on a huge Videotron billboard at a major Jakarta intersection

Mark your calendars, save the date, and sign up for COCO+ if you haven’t already to secure free entry for you and a buddy to this kickass event and tons more. It will be a night to remember with free flow beer, single mixers, finger foods, and, of course, great conversations. Feel free to use any of the stories above to break the ice.
