Good morning,

Welcome back to Strait Up, our weekly newsletter that makes sense of what’s going on in Southeast Asia.

Today we have a quick follow up on Indonesia’s new internet regulations, and ponder upon why media coverage (including ours) so often focuses on the wrong thing. We also speak with an expert about what’s happening with the Singapore dollar and inflation, and why a string of cable thefts is worrying Philippines’ telco operators.

Ready? Let’s dive in.
