Asiamaya is dedicated to one of Indonesia’s most important export products, not by trade volume but by its philosophical impact on mankind. Just like antibiotics in the management of venereal disease, or the contraceptive pill in the avoidance of unwanted pregnancies, tongkat ali, like Viagra, changes culture by putting older men fully back into the sexual arena.
Compared to the output of palm plantations, the trade volume of tongkat ali may be small. But tongkat ali is a game changer. And who could say this for palm oil.
Asiamaya started out, before the dotcom crash of 2001, as an Indonesian information portal, even with stock market affiliation and a concept of being publicly traded. We are still Indonesian like our tongkat ali, and there still is a lot of Indonesia information here, but the focus has shifted to Internet commerce.
