Bugis boat moored on the Kapuas River in front of Pontianak in West Kalimantan. The Bugis are an ethnic group from South Sulawesi renown for  their shipbuilding and sailing skills. They were also feared pirates during the 1800's and plundered the seas from Singapore to the Philippines.  The old expression used to get children to behave, "you better do this or the boogeyman will get you" is thought to have originally referred to Bugis pirates.
