印度尼西亞商店, Toko Indo,在印度尼西亞移民的目的地國家很普遍,包括台灣。印尼商店的經營理念各不相同。一些印尼商店主要提供印尼美食和雜貨,其他則提供額外服務,包括匯款和貨運。根據在一家名為印度尼西亞快遞(INDEX)的印度尼西亞商店兼職與進行田野調查的經歷,我認為這些印度尼西亞商店是台灣印度尼西亞移民社群的重要社交和情感支持場所。對於一些印尼移民來說,這些商店甚至是他們的“第二個家”,在他們休假的時候提供暫時性的解脫和隱私。此外,本論文也認為INDEX是一種「移民基礎設施」,在印度尼西亞和台灣之間的匯款流動以及進出口貨物中起著至關重要的中介作用。因此,本文認為像INDEX這樣的印尼商店,除了追求利潤,同時也是貨物、情感以及社會性流通的重要場所。
Indonesian stores, known as Toko Indo, are prevalent in Indonesian migrants’ destination countries, including Taiwan. The business concept of Indonesian stores varies from one to another. While some Indonesian stores mainly serve Indonesian cuisine and groceries, others provide additional services, including remittance and cargo delivery. While working as a part-time worker in an Indonesian store called Indonesian Delivery Express (INDEX), I also conducted 28 months of in-depth ethnographic fieldwork. I observed that these Indonesian stores are important sites of social and emotional support for Indonesian migrant communities in Taiwan. For some Indonesian migrants, these stores even exist as their “second home”, providing momentary relief and privacy during their days off. Moreover, this thesis has found that a business enterprise like INDEX is part of the migration infrastructure that mediates the flow of remittance and goods between Indonesia and Taiwan. Therefore, besides profit-seeking, Indonesian stores like INDEX are also places where various goods, sociality, and emotions are exchanged and circulated.
