U.F.O. for Plastic Bag

Different from U.S. that used paper bags for wrapping, in Indonesia, plastic bags used for packing groceries. Supermarket, traditional market, and small shops accustomed to using plastic bags for wrapping customer's goods. From veggies to meats. From detergents to bottled waters. From snacks to rice or wheats. Therefore, many specialized companies producing plastic bags. As seen here one of plastic bags labelled: U-F-O. There's maybe a strong reasons to suggest ideas for flying saucer as the product name. Maybe UFO here is an abbreviation of Unidentified Funny Objects.  

Tas Plastik: plastic bag
Ukuran: size
Kuat: strong
Tidak berbau: odorless, not smelly
kualitas terjamin: quality guaranted

Yield Cigarettes

Forget about the "macho, cowboy, adventure, and freedom-impression" of Marlboro. Forget also another kind of Camel, Pall Mall, Lucky Strike, Ardath, e.t.c. which suggests an adventure for the smoker. 

May I introduce you, Yield Cigarettes!
Ngalah (Javanese) means: yield, give up.
Rokok Dari Idola (Indonesian) means: Idol's Cigarettes; abbreviated to RDI.
Kretek (Javanese) means: no filter.

I do not know for sure what the intent of the manufacturer of this cigarettes. Why made a cigarettes to give the impression of: yield, loose, or give up? What's the reason? What is so interesting from the "loser"? Idol is supposed to be the winners not losers?

Toothbrush for String/Yarn

String/Yarn product with pictorial label: toothbrush. Produced by Lie Fung from Surabaya, East Java. A very interesting here is "Why the toothbrush  used to label products of string?" "What is the relationship between toothbrush with string?"  There are many products in Indonesia that used "no relationship images". Very unique and funny.
