Also, isn't 100 sen equal to a rupiah everywhere in the world, even if you can't spend it most places? (I've just come off posting a quiz of funniest one-liners so I'm still in that mood)

Actually, no! 100 sen equals a riel in Cambodia, a dollar in Brunei, and a ringgit in Malaysia :)

Ha! And ouch on me for missing that :) I never knew about Cambodian sen; as a regular visitor to that country, since a single riel is microscopic in value (in this country without coins, the smallest banknote denomination, 100 riel, is worth 2.5 US cents) I had no idea riels could be subdivided further.
