What is the difference between Indonesians who spent 1-5 years abroad, say, USA, and Indonesians who spend their whole life in Indonesia?

Depends.

If it’s some privileged Jaksel Orba kid who stayed within the safe familiar PERMIAS/KBRI bubble for the entire time he/she was there… then no difference whatsoever.

Or, if it’s some nervous Jakbar kid who arrives and gets sucked in by the Indo church youth groups… then biasanya jadi close-minded religious zealot.

Those two types are basically two sides of the same coin. And you know ’em when you see ’em.
