Sinfully Yours

Def. sinful (taken from Cambridge Dictionary Online)
Informal ~ describes something which is pleasant, but very bad for you.


Jakarta is a sinful city.

Sin-full of cheap Bintang beers; cigarrettes that cost a tiny fraction of what smokers are paying in Malaysia and other countries; clubs full of slutty looking bartop dancers that close only at dawn and hostesses who lap dance for you at a minimal price or sometimes free of charge; cheap labour which causes a pandemic of everyone owning drivers, maids, nannies, and cooks; round-the-clock in-home beauty services; the Blackberry craze - every 8 out of 10 people are carrying BB (total defeat for iPhone); a paradise for shopaholics and a city full of ladies lugging around either a Louise Vuitton Neverfull or Hermes Birkin.

In Jakarta, money is everything. Money buys you convenience, luxuries and most of the time, it gets you out of trouble with the authorities.
