Hi! Guys, my Grab driver. Hello, sir! Luke. This is you? Okay, the number plate is different. Okay, thank you.

I'm going to go GoKarting, everybody. When I was at one of the beaches yesterday, I saw a GoKarting track, and I was just up in my hotel. I was like, all right, let's just go check it out, see if we can book it. If not, we'll figure out another adventure to go on for the evening. But GoKarting, who doesn't love a little bit of GoKarting? So let's do it. And Ramadan is all on the side here.

We'll see if he wants to go GoKarting. It might be hard to explain. Hey, can we stop here? Ramadan? No. One minute. One minute. Hello. How are you? I’m gonna ask. You want to go? Do you want to go GoKarting? I'm trying to take GoKart.

GoKart? Yeah, GoKart. You want to come? Yeah. Yeah.

This Grab driver- Yeah. Do it. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. We take. I will pay you for a ride. Here, you take this. Yeah, you can.

You can cancel, or I will cancel. I've come. I've made this so confusing. How do I cancel the ride? You want to cancel? Yeah, cancel. And I pay.

You have a day off. Thank you. Thank you very much. All right, let's shoot with Ramadan, and then we'll go GoKarting. All right, I will sit. I want to translate to make sure everyone's on the same page here.

So you don't have to wait for me. You can cancel the ride. I will go with my friend. Okay. Thank you. yeah.

I just don't want him to get about. I get five stars and we also give a tip. We add tip.

So you want to go GoKarting? You go out strolling. I don't know what that means. I'll just. Ah, I'll show you guys a photo of it. This is so much easier.

Here we go. Here. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Beach. Cause I want to go go karting I want him to come.

Yeah. All right. Yeah. He's going. Thank you so much. I'm so sorry I have to put you through this, thank you. God, I'm such a nuisance.

But for perspective, the Grab drive, we rode, like, 2 minutes. It was another 10 minutes, and I had to pay 10,000 Indonesian rupiah, which is 1 AUD. So I gave him 30. I gave him a 10,000 tip as well. And he doesn't have to complete the ride. He's a legend.

And that he put up with my best. But Ramadan's gone, So Ramadan is going this way. He's getting the, the, the becak. that's what they call it in Jogja I think they call a becak here. So Ramadan is going to drive us around.

He doesn't speak a single word of English. And I know absolutely no Bahasa Indonesia, so this will be an interesting time. He's only 16. I don't even know if he's allowed to drive a GoKart. Maybe they have legislation in. We'll see.

Now, if we're unable to go GoKarting, everybody, we're going to have an issue because it looks like there's a storm coming in over there and yeah, over that way significantly even worse. But there is a mall next, the next by Trans Studio and it's like rollercoasters and like it's a snow park. So when taking Ramadan there is it's such a character I can't believe that yesterday it all started because he was just here and I thought his father was going to be the one riding the tricycle. We'll see. Where you from? Australia. Yeah, yeah.

Your country? Indonesia. Yes. Makassar? Nice. Yes. What's your name? Luke. Luke. Your name? Adil. Adil? Nice to meet you, Adil.

Your name? Andis. Andis. Nice to meet you. All right, guys.

It's been about 5 minutes since Ramadan has left, but it's chilling. Luckily, the cloud cover here in Makassar, limits the uh- the sun that comes through. So it's not too hot to sitting on here. If it was direct sunlight on me.

That would be a different story. But the we're kind of chilling, they have tuk-tuks here. They've tuk-tuks here in Indonesia. Have I seen a tuk-tuk in Indonesia before? Maybe in Jakarta. Another tuk-tuk! Max ride. But, we'll keep chilling.

Wait for them to come around. Here he is! Okay, ready? Good. You almost ran me over. They want to come? They come.

Yeah, you come. We can all go GoKarting. All right, let's go.

That is your mom. Mom? Yeah, mom. I have the parents permission. To take their kids out on a day trip to go GoKarting. I still don't even know. They know that we're going GoKarting.

I hope there isn't, like, age requirement here in Indonesia. Like it. It'd be crazy that he can't go kart, but he can drive on the main roads of Indonesia and that'd be hilarious. But-

I think it could actually be something. Yeah, GoKart. Yeah. Yeah. Hello. People are so friendly here in Makassar Everybody, they chillin. Hello.

You can say that like two people in the space of 100 meters saying hello. Ocarina Beach. That is the one Ocarina not the one that we went to yesterday for the first time.

And apart from the GoKarting, or is it the other one that had to GoKart? I think it's. Ocarina. There were two that we went to Bosoa? I think. and Ocarina They're right next to each other. Look at all these homes on the left here. Yeah, looking good.

Yeah. What is lanti mean? Shave? Bagus means good. I just saw he said that for the first time. And I remember that from the previous trip. Bagus, bagus. It's like acha in Hindi.

All right, let's go. We got the coconuts the other day. Hello? Hello? It's a different person selling coconuts. Look at all the cars overtaking us. I forgot how ridiculously slow these tricycles are. And the suspension is so awful.

They're like, Yeah, especially when you have like, three people. It's like, up and down, up and down. It's so bumpy and this road is so uneven. I remember from from the trip yesterday was so up and down, up and down.

You got to go slow. So that's the Bosowa beach. I think they have quad biking there. Maybe.

Yeah. Yeah. yeah.

We're the biggest ones on the road. I don't know. I don't know. Yeah, we might not fit.

Right. Let's see. Hello? We want to go GoKarting.

Hello. Yeah, we want to He can't go. We have to go all the way back.

We can't just go there. Oh, my God. He's going to pull us all the way back because they won't let us go the other way.

That's just cruel. Why this let let the men go through just the barricade. That's just power trip on a whole another level. Yesterday, when we went through here with the tricycle, it was so, so, like, close.

You want to get those? [speaking local language] [speaking local language] What did he say? [speaking local language] [speaking local language] He said here is so fun. He say thank you for you.. What do I do with this one? I just leave here? Thank you. You broke the trophy. Ramadan's a mess. I don't know.

We have his. Tour guide. Yeah, he's tour guide. [speaking local language] [speaking local language] [speaking local language] He take me yesterday. He took me to get a shave. Yeah, where? Barber tattoo. [speaking local language] [speaking local language] [speaking local language] Can you ask him? Does he go to school? [speaking local language] No? Why?

Thank you. See you. Yeah. Yeah. What a great guy. He was awesome. Thank you. He was so helpful in translating. Like, it's been surprisingly difficult in Makassar to translate.

Like, just have a basic conversation. [speaking local language] [speaking local language] [speaking local language] Yes. I'm just saying yes. Very good.

I mean, after that performance, maybe I should be the one riding the the tricycle. Let's go go karting. Done.

Hello. Bye-bye. See you! I imagine like ten people on that truck at once would be so hard to overtake. I guess that's the name of go karting.

Also help for having someone that spoke English. I actually got to actually know more about Ramadan and his situation. So obviously like today's a weekday. So usually they would be at school because he can't afford schools to like the clothes for school.

So he doesn't get to be educated because when I was translating it did cross on my mind maybe whether he even could read Bahasa because if you're not going to school, then where else would you really like be able to learn how to read? So I did cross my mind like, maybe he can't even see the translations. The I'm now I'm doing so now I don't know how we can help. We're going to need our ticket here. You have ticket. Very good. Hello, how are you? See you.

Bye-bye. Guys. If you're in Makassar, you know where Ramadan stall is and where his family is. Literally right near the centerpoint of Indonesia. So I'm only here for, you know, the 8 hours I fly out early tomorrow.

So if we're able to organize something to get his family helpful, to get him and potentially his siblings in school or whatever they wish, then please do reach out. If you are from Makassar and we can talk about it, organize something. I just you know, to say I've been in the city for like 36 hours, so I'm not entirely sure how it all works. I know I can just give them money, but it's don't know what is the process of having everything best to suit their family's needs?
