ANN/ The Jakarta Post – Get yourself a guy like Sarmintul.

Giant billboards depicting a woman appeared in several locations in Yogyakarta earlier this month, bearing the message, “Happy Birthday Mrs Sarmintul. From your husband, Mr Sarmintul”.

The four-by-six metre billboards were located at three busy intersections in the city, the Rejowinangun, Wirosaban, and Jejeran crossroads. Sarmintul is a chicken noodle stall owner whose real name is Veta Mandra.

His chicken noodle stall, Mie Ayam Pak Sarmintul, is a moderately busy enterprise in Bantul, Yogyakarta. He is also the man behind the popular account @InfoMieAyamYK, which is dedicated to providing information about the dish to its fans across the city.

Veta’s wife, whose real name is unknown, had a birthday on November 26. The billboards served as a surprise birthday present for her.

Many passersby and online observers said the billboards were a breath of fresh air, as lately such billboards had been widely used for political self-promotion.
