Perth is one of the major cities in the Kangaroo State, Australia. Located in Western Australia, Perth is often referred to as a very isolated city in the world. This elemental country is thousands of kilometers apart from Sydney (3,291 km), Adelaide (2,104 km), Brisbane (3,604 km) and Canberra (3,106 km).
Compared to many large cities, Perth is even closer to Jakarta, which is 3,002 km and to Denpasar, Bali 2,584 km. The close distance to Denpasar, Perth residents, prefer to vacation in Bali rather than having to fly to Sydney or Melbourne.
Likewise, many Indonesians also live in Perth, study and work in Perth for many years, but still hold an Indonesian passport.
One of the Indonesians who lived and worked in Perth was Rudianto. This man born in Sampang, Madura, June 16, 1970, has lived in Perth for dozens of years.
To live his life in the Kangaroo country, Rudianto chose to run a culinary business of Indonesian specialties. Rudi ended the opening of Bintang Cafe Restaurant in the Victoria Park area. A restaurant that specializes in Indonesian halal food. Starting from satay, fried rice, soup until rendang is found in this location.
Expensive Rent Doesn’t Stop to Expand
“My culinary business was opened in 2005, Alhamdulillah was held until now,” said Rudianto reported by the Jambi Ekspress (Jawa Pos Group), Tuesday (12/12).
He said, from one open, the restaurant had gained confidence in the hearts of the Indonesian people in Perth. For the business, there is no legal problem, but to manage the most severe operational activities daily.
“Like the rental location in my area, Victoria Park ranges from Rp. 35 million to Rp. 150 million per month,” he explained.
Rudi explained, just for the salary of cooks around Rp. 250,000 per hour. However, on Sundays or public holidays can be increased to Rp. 500,000 per hour and 10 percent above that, the money for employee pension funds must be paid.
“That is a small number, not to mention VAT, state taxes and personal taxes. However, you should not be afraid to speculate. Every business must not have a significant immediate, and all must be initiated from the start.

The area of his administration is Victoria City Park. Victoria Park is divided into branches of three original eastern arterial roads including the Canning Highway, Albany Highway, Causeway Bridge, and the Greater East Highway. The trail connects Victoria Park to the city, which is approximately 3 km northwest. Therefore, this location is most strategic as a business location.
This area seems to be the exclusive culinary location of Southeast Asian food. Next to Bintang Cafe, in one complex there are unique restaurants from Indonesia’s neighboring countries, like Thailand and Malaysia.
