Kecap asin ("salty soy sauce") is the soy sauce you'd be familiar with from Chinese or Japanese food. Kecap manis ("sweet soy sauce") is a regional variant, it's pretty easy to find in Australian grocery stores, I have a bottle in my fridge. It's not just a little sweetened, though, it's like soy-flavoured syrup; first ingredient sugar. Despite the unsweetened one being called salty, kecap manis also has plenty of salt according to both the ingredients list and the nutrition information, it's just a less obvious flavour under all the sugar
