AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND ASSOCIATION A not-for-profit organization, welcoming people of all nationalities

J

ust before we left for our holidays I had lunch with a friend who asked me "what is Christmas like in Australia?" My reply was "Hot, lots of food, usually turkey or seafood but sometimes both, catching up with relatives and bad TV" When we got home we decided to do our usual drive to Sydney to spend New Year with friends and that’s when I remembered what Summer Holidays in Australia are all about 1. Getting excited about an extremely long car trip to a beach destination when you only live 30 minutes from one 2. Truck stop toasted sandwiches, somewhat soggy and cold on the outside but with tomato that will burn the roof of your mouth along with truck stop tea and coffee served in insulated cups so that the tea is guaranteed to burn your tongue 4. Trying to hold on till a truck stop for a clean toilet but having to stop at a rest area toilet. Pushing the door hesitatingly and stepping in searching for that spider you know is behind the door, then spending the entire time staring at the spider so it wont move (power of the mind and all) and missing the mosquito that is buzzing round the bowl 5. Mosquito bites on body parts that you have no clue how they got there 6. Stopping at, at least, one big thing tourist attraction (Dog on the tucker box counts as well) on the way despite trying not to. Big Banana; Big Pineapple; Big Prawn; Big Trout, etc. 7. An argument over directions 8. ABC radio. Honestly its 2014 you would think that the ABC would no longer be the only radio station you could access in between large towns Secretly enjoying radio trading post. 9. Passing through small towns with antique stores, quaint pubs, and parks but not stopping due to being behind the imaginary schedule you set when you left 10. Double demerit points, Double the fine 11. Every Australian has been touched by a Natural Disaster be it a bush fire, a flood, a cyclone, a hail storm we all have been through it or know someone who has, it comes with living in Australia, its climate and geography make it prone to them and they occur more often during December/January. So part of the trip is grateful that the ABC has the news every 15 minutes, hoping that it has not spread to your area 12. Arriving at destination extremely hungry despite eating every petrol stop and tired even though you have probably slept most of the trip 13. Having a great time at your destination making new memories and getting sunburnt 15. Driving home. It seems to be a lot quicker to get home than it was to get there. 16. Finding sand in the car for months afterwards even though you vacuumed twenty times 17. Making plans for next Christmas to fly to a resort some place tropical but knowing deep down inside that you will be in a car on a highway somewhere between capital cities with a sunburnt arm, a burnt tongue, a cherry ripe and listening to the radio trading post wondering if you should swing by and pick up the dinghy that’s for sale

President’s message Janine Spencer

I

would like to welcome everyone back to Jakarta and to the beginning of a new year. I can’t quite decide where 2013 went, but here we are with a month of 2014 already passed. ANZA is hoping for yet another great year, but keep in mind, that we need our members to help us make this happen. The AGM will be held on March 14, so why not consider standing for one of the positions of the ANZA Committee. ANZA can only run well, with input from as many members as possible and being on the committee is a great way to help. It is the committee members who organize all our events, big and small and help raise the money that sustains our ANZA Social Welfare Programs, so think about becoming part of the committee, and help to make all that happen. You can even get together with a friend and share a role. On a personal note, I have found being on the ANZA Committee very rewarding, and each position I have held has bought with it friends that I have met through the role, and things that have challenged and entertained me. I can recommend being part of ANZA and the committee to you all. As I will be leaving Jakarta to return to Australia in March, this will be my last Presidents message, and so I would like to thank all those ANZA members who have donated so much of their time selflessly. They are Committee members, they are Social Welfare Committee members, or they are the people who are simply there day in and day out helping ANZA, in so many different ways. You make ANZA, and I feel privileged to have had the chance to represent you all. I hope that 2014 brings to you all, the things that you would hope for yourselves, joy, laughter, and as this is Jakarta, just a little patience as well. I am grateful to have met you all, and I know that I am a better person for having known you all and having lived in Jakarta. Thank you

Janine

Back from

the holidays…

H

oliday time for us is a lot less complicated than for many expats I know. Both my husband’s family and my own live in one state, conveniently, within an hour’s drive of each other. So, getting together is doable from that perspective. Finding a venue large enough to house everyone on the other hand is not an easy task!

I have five siblings and my husband has three. They are all married with children and on my side of the family, some of my 19 nieces and nephews also have children! I said it’s less complicated, not less stressful. We’re all familiar with travelling home for the Christmas break. Being from Australia, that also means it’s summer! We’re from Melbourne, so we basically have to travel with clothes for all seasons no matter what the time of year is! We manage to get to the beach for a couple of weeks, which could include lazy, sunny days on the beach and breezy walks along the pier or drinking hot 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48

cocoa in front of a roaring fire, while torrential rain and wind pound at your windows! Either way, it’s a welcome break. The last week of our holiday, however, usually involves staying with relatives and living out of a suitcase in a room that’s really only big enough for a bed and not much else! Recently my husband and I both turned 50, and apart from ticking a different box on some forms, not much else has changed. Isn’t 50 still the new 40?? We decided to gather as many family members and friends together and celebrate the milestone one afternoon at one of the local wineries on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, where we were holidaying. It was held just after Christmas and everyone was happy to leave the stress of the silly season behind. Blessed with beautiful weather (always a gamble in

Melbourne) we all came together, flanked by lush vineyards bearing fragrant sun-ripened fruit and a cloudless summer sky. Our guests trickled in until the room was buzzing with lively chatter and the gentle clinking of glasses. Haunting harp music serenaded us and a slideshow of snapshots from our last 50 years provided a memorable backdrop, filling us with a sense of nostalgia. Chilled local wine and delectable canapés were indulged in, as well as an impressive cake, courtesy of a local artisan baker, which was perfect to toast the occasion. Our guests had driven from all over Victoria, and some had flown from around the country to be with us and help us celebrate our combined century. It was great to see old friends, including people we’d met during our time overseas on previous postings. In this day and age, with social media often dominating our down time, (yes, it makes keeping in touch easier – particularly in this transient lifestyle) but there’s nothing quite like getting together with friends, good food and wine and enjoying the summer breeze on your skin and a little human contact. Sure beats a cyber hug!

Downtown Abbey Lunch

I

thought I was in a series of Downtown Abbey when everyone arrived in costume! After a fabulous luncheon consisting of soup, sandwiches, scones and French pastries. We watched the first and last series of Downtown Abbey, with a pop quiz thrown in the middle. Annette Binns and Jess Woolfson wore the most original costumes of the day. A fabulous day was had by all. A big thank you to the sponsor:

2013 – A Year of Social Welfare A

year ago, when I first thought about taking on the role of Social Welfare Co-Director, I – and Gilly, too, a couple of months later – wondered what we were signing up for and whether we were biting off more than we could chew. After ten months in the role, as the new year begins, we look back on a rewarding year full of inspiring people and events, and feel delighted that we took the plunge.

The Social Welfare Committee Our committee is the backbone of ANZA Social Welfare. There are long-termers and newbies, expats and locals, and everyone contributes and is positive about what we are doing. To work in a group, numbering around 30, who willingly give up their time to help those less fortunate than themselves is truly inspiring.

The Embassies and Ambassadors

We have our trusty Treasurer Michelle McCarthy and our super Secretary Sarah Rees, our Project and Sponsorship Program Coordinators and our general members and volunteers. Some of our committee members not only support our work behind the scenes, but also volunteer at projects once or even several times a week, teaching children, teaching adults, playing with children, swimming with disabled children, providing support to adults with paraplegia and taking elderly people on outings. Every visit brings smiles and joy, and enriches the lives of both the helpers and the people we help. Those special moments of connection that cross age, language and cultural barriers are the intangible rewards that keep us all committed and passionate about what we do.

We are fortunate to have the continued support of the Australian and New Zealand Embassies. Our March meeting in 2013 was held at the residence of the New Zealand Ambassador David Taylor and attended by his wife Theresa Taylor and Sara Moriarty, wife of the Australian Ambassador. The Taylors graciously opened their house to us again in April when they hosted our annual meeting with our sponsors, where we launched our new social welfare video and had a chance to thank our sponsors for their generosity. Following some discussions that evening, David Taylor invited us to apply for some NZ Embassy funding, and we were delighted to secure IDR 200 million towards the much-needed renovations of the Parapattan Orphanage.

In April, the Australian Ambassador Greg Moriarty helped us honour and celebrate the achievements of Marilyn Ardipradja, a member of ANZA for over 30 years, who has worked tirelessly for our social welfare program since its beginnings.

In June the Australian Embassy Social Club donated 18 million to provide monthly funding for extra protein for children at Parapattan Orphanage. In August, they organised a charity Golf Day, which raised IDR 180 million for ANZA-supported projects, and in October, several members of the social welfare team and representatives of the recipient charities braved the Embassy security to attend the presentation. The Moriartys also generously opened their house to us all for the ANZA Christmas Lunch.

Sponsorship Programs In 2013 our Medical and Student Sponsorship Programs continued to expand and flourish. Louise Kennedy, our Student Sponsorship Program Coordinator, has worked closely throughout the year with participating schools Esti Bakti, PGRI 35 and At Taqwa, and has also taken on some new students from SD MKGR. By the end of the year, the program was helping over 425 students to stay in school. A new database to improve the management of student records will be up and running in early 2014.

Partnerships We are very lucky to work with many local yayasans (charities) and organisations that allow us to achieve things we would never be able to do on our own. In 2013, we continued to team up with the Priscilla Hall Memorial Foundation (PHMF) on several projects including much-needed building works. The school SD MKGR in West Jakarta, set up to educate children from very poor local families, now has three bright new classrooms, enabling more students to attend school for longer hours. The Parapattan Orphanage had an old leaky structure that housed dining, kitchen and food storage areas, which flooded every timed it rained. Thanks to the combined support of ANZA, PHMF and the NZ Embassy, children and staff can use the newly built replacement facilities safely in any weather.

Daleen Fourie, our Medical Sponsorship Coordinator, has continued to strengthen ANZA’s relationships with Sayap Ibu Bintaro and Citra Baru, yayasans that work tirelessly to help children with medical needs and refer individual children to us for sponsorship. During 2013, we expanded the types of surgery we can support and have also begun to help adults with paraplegia at Loka Bina Karya

with much-needed medical supplies. In March we were very lucky to meet Professor David David, the Australian-based founder of the cranio-facial surgery program at Citra Baru, during his visit to Jakarta.

Events Every year in Social Welfare, we are involved in events at ANZA and events with our partners. Every couple of months we present information to new members at the New Members Morning Teas, where we hope to inspire those new to Jakarta to join us. In May we held a Barang Barang sale to clear the ANZA store room of donated goods that did not find a home in one of our projects. For a couple of hours one morning, ANZA’s verandah became a buzzing market place as locals snapped up bargains and contributed to raising IDR 7 million. In May and November we ran food stalls at the ANZA bazaars and raised over IDR 15 million in May and an impressive IDR 25 million in November, thanks to the efforts of a busy team of bakers, cooks, organisers and helpers.

In April some of our members did presentations at the yearly training session for Goodwill International, an organisation that provides scholarships for financially disadvantaged university students. We also helped interview students at the beginning of the year and attended several get togethers throughout the year.

Every quarter, we attend meetings at BKKKS, the government body that oversees social welfare programs in Jakarta, where we are given new referrals of organisations that need help. We also attend quarterly Interswat meetings, where we share information with social welfare representatives of the other expat agencies. This year, these meetings have led to a joint initiative with the American Women’s Association called Project Rainbow, a plan to improve the children’s wards at Fatmawati Hospital. In November, Daleen and Louise presented our sponsorship programs at a Friday ExtravagANZA, a wonderful event well attended by members and with delightful performances by students from some of the participating schools (see article in this issue).

Phew! Are you exhausted just reading about our busy year in Social Welfare? Gilly and I learned over the year that there never is a quiet time, that there are always things to do – meetings to attend, enquiries to respond to, reports and agendas to produce, events to prepare for, new evaluations to organise (and of course Berita articles to write!) – but we are constantly buoyed and energised by the rewards of working with a wonderful group of locals and expats, and seeing the difference that ANZA Social Welfare can make in the Jakarta community. Please come and talk to us if you’d like to join our team in Social Welfare.

ANZA Adventures – Menteng – October 2013 M

eeting at ANZA House at 9am was rather civilised as a small group of us headed off to Menteng with Gillian as our guide and host for the day. You know the traffic isn’t so bad when you are off on an adventure for the day, new to Jakarta and have lots of side streets to discover on the way to your destination.

One of the outside areas within the restaurant

Lara Djonggrang Restaurant (A) Stop one for a cold drink and Indonesian Hospitality was at Lara Djonggrang Restaurant. A surprising oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of Jakarta. This restaurant is definitely a delight for the senses, with lots of small intimate dining areas tucked around every corner. Everywhere there are antiques and artworks that have been restored and give you a small look at some of the history of Indonesia. To find out more about the legend of Lara Djonggrang www.tuguhotels.com

One of the dining rooms. FYI – the figure on display here is a Garuda.

Antique Market (B) Our next stop is the Antique Market (Jalan Surabaya Menteng). Antiques and some ‘not so antique’ as far as the eye can see.

Antique Market - Menteng

A suggestion is to go up the street to see what items are of interest and then go back to purchase as some things are easy to come by and some not. Word to the wise, if you see something you like, buy it as there is no guarantee it will be there next time (I am learning this about Jakarta shopping in general!).

Prices vary and it was extremely helpful to have someone who spoke Indonesian to assist with purchases. Gillian was also extremely knowledgeable as to what items had history and which ones didn’t. A great outing for all the family, there is sure to be something of interest here for everyone. Fortunately at the end of the street there are restaurants and coffee shops if a rest is needed between purchases.

Tugu Kunstkring Paleis (C) Our lunch destination, another of Tugu Hotel lovingly restored restaurants’ with a difference. And with an interesting history which was shared with us by our host James who also showed us around the Hotel after our delicious lunch.

Immigration office for part of its life

Downstairs is the restaurant with several eating areas and private dining rooms. Then there is Suzie Wong’s Bar, which has an intrigue about it, but I will leave that to the storytellers.

Suzie Wong’s Bar

Upstairs is a large open space which features art and is transformed into whatever the artist wants it to be, restoring the use of the space to what it was originally designed for.

Upstairs Gallery

Upstairs there are also more private dining rooms, including the 2 very romantic bell towers. Outside off the gallery is a large balcony which overlooks the lawn and is a perfect place to wind down in the cooler part of the day. James, our host during lunch, tells us you can order from the menu anywhere in the hotel, even a picnic on the lawn if you bring your own blanket.

Often used as an example of divine beauty, Vishnu is often described as the ‘Lotus-Eyed One’. Its unfolding petals suggest the expansion of the soul. The growth of its pure beauty from the mud of its origin holds a benign spiritual promise. 

Thank you to Gillian, Erica, Gail, Sandy, our hosts and ANZA for a memorable ‘day out’.

As we head home after a lovely day, meeting new friends and discovering new places the last thing I take a photo of is the lotus flower blooming outside the hotel. And a very apt piece from Wikipedia sums up how I feel about my day out discovering a different side of Jakarta….

Party Pies

A perfect snack for Anzac Day! E

veryone has a different version of a pie depending on where in Australia or New Zealand you grew up. I grew up in country Victoria and Beaumont’s was the pie of choice, it has soft pasty and a thin flaky top with a very peppery filling that was not very sloppy so it was perfect to walk around with. My husband grew up in Melbourne and the 4 & 20 footy pie was the go. There’s not much spice to it and its sloppy so it always drips and without fail burns the top of your mouth, and then there’s Villi’s in South Australia, Big Dads in Queensland and so on. Anyway the point is, below you will find a basic party pie recipe that you can adjust to make it taste like home. You can alter the pastry by using a shortcrust pastry for the base (so its thicker). You can also adjust the seasoning by adding lots of pepper or a dash of Tabasco. Make it a full meal by adding cooked potato chunks and frozen peas with the carrot. Make it sloppier by adding a little more liquid or make it firmer by reducing it by for longer. The recipe is good as is but play with it to find the perfect taste for you. The recipe makes at least 48 mini pies but I usually make 24 and freeze the rest of the meat mix which is a good base for a pasta sauce (just add some tomatoes and herbs) Savoury mince on toast, just add some spice and toast or more pies. You can freeze for up to 2 months.

1 brown onion finely chopped 2 cloves garlic crushed 500g lean beef mince 1 carrot coarsely grated ¼ cup powdered gravy (you can get gravox at Kemchicks the roast meat or traditional works fine) 1 cup boiling water salt and pepper 4 sheets puff pastry 1 egg lightly beaten

Preheat oven 180c Heat a splash of vegetable oil in a frypan over medium heat Add onion and garlic fry until soft Add mince fry until it changes colour. Add carrot. Mix gravy powder with water. Add to mince cook for two minutes season with salt and pepper to taste. Leave aside until cold Cut two sheets of the pastry into 24 squares; press a square into each muffin hole in a 24-hole mini muffin tin Spoon some of the meat mix into each pasty case. Cut the other two sheets into 24 squares and top each pie with a pastry square pressing the sides together. Cut off all the excess pastry. Brush with the beaten egg Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until golden. Let sit in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out.

N

ovember saw the second of the Social Welfare themed ExtravagANZAs at ANZA House and was the perfect time for the Medical Sponsorship and Student Sponsorship Programs to launch their annual Christmas Appeals. There were brief presentations from Daleen Fourie (Medical Sponsorship) and Louise Kennedy (Student Sponsorship), and the ANZA Christmas Gift Tree was on display with pretty batik decorations artfully created by Gilly Weaver and Catherine Hilder. Anyone wishing to sponsor a child or adult for life-changing surgery, or a student for a year’s education, can choose a decoration and then arrange to pay the appropriate amount either by cash at ANZA House or transfer to the Medical Sponsorship or Student Sponsorship accounts. Before and after the talks and slideshows there were two sets of entertainment for the audience: a musical performance by the students from Mutiara Harapan and some traditional dances by a group of girls from At Taqwa Elementary School. Mutiara Harapan is a bilingual school in Bintaro that promotes a global view and encourages its students to help their community. The students raised money last year to sponsor seven students under the ANZA Student Sponsorship Program and have continued with their

sponsorship this year too. They were delighted to have the opportunity to prepare a short speech and two songs for the ANZA members, and more importantly, to have the opportunity to meet some of the children they sponsor at At Taqwa. The eight girls who visited from At Taqwa were all students who participate in the Student Sponsorship Program (three of whom are sponsored by Mutiara Harapan). It was a big adventure for them to travel with their teachers from their school in Cakung, East Jakarta, to ANZA and they were very excited to be performing in front of a group of predominantly foreign ladies. The girls wore large-print name tags on their uniforms, so it was easy for sponsors in the audience to identify their child. The performances were very enthusiastically received and there were beaming smiles all round. Several sponsors for both Medical and Student Sponsorship signed up on the day, so the event was a great success. After the students had finished their performances, the boys all went to the local masjid to pray while the girls stayed behind and were treated to a fun arts and crafts activity. When the boys returned, everyone enjoyed special fried chicken and rice prepared

Enjoy

the Ride

T

ime really flies when you are having fun. Not that living in Jakarta is a piece of cake but as we all know, it is about finding the joy in the midst of the chaos that matters. Yes, it is definitely a challenge to derive happiness from being stuck in unending traffic, unceasing miscommunication from the lack of proficiency in Bahasa Indonesia and even the unhurried pace of life here. However, I have found a greater appreciation of my life and learned to ‘enjoy the roses’ along the way from the many interesting people I have met. They have given me a new perspective on finding fun and joy even in the most mundane or frustrating situations. One might think that being Asians, we would have had an easier time adjusting to life in Jakarta. In fact, it has been an uphill challenge to keep cool, calm and collected in the face of adversity. Being

Singaporeans, my husband and I had to switch off our ‘home’ mindset and tune in to the ‘Jakarta frequency’. It was structure and efficiency clashing with chaos and vibrancy. Added to that was the steep adjustment and learning curve that we had to contend with by being newly-weds. That was a year ago and how fast has time zipped by. I still find myself being surprised everyday in Jakarta with things that do not work the way they should. My Bahasa, though far from fluent, has improved in leaps and bounds through my daily interactions with those around me. Everything else has also improved except for the traffic, which seems to be getting worse with time. Every week I face having to spend about one to two hours just travelling to my commitments. This is the biggest challenge in pursuing my voluntary work. When I first arrived in Jakarta, it was a daunting

period as I had my blossoming career nipped prematurely in the bud and had to move to a new place with few job prospects. Thankfully, my positive attitude helped me to overcome those initial down days and quickly bounce back to embrace the adventure ahead. I felt that this was a wonderful time to answer the call from deep within. I may not have a job but I felt compelled to do something that would make a difference in another person›s life. Having been active in community involvement back home, answering this call felt natural. Joining the Social Welfare Committee of ANZA has been wonderful as I work with like-minded people and learn from the more experienced members who inspire me to do more. There is no shortage of deserving causes that tug at your heartstrings. Having seen the street kids of Jakarta and believing in the power of education, I felt that I could contribute my skills and talents through teaching. In fact, it was at my first Social Welfare meeting that I was immediately drawn to volunteer my services at Nurani Insani. It is a free school for disadvantaged children that ANZA and its sponsors have supported for many years. ANZA’s monthly financial contribution helps pay for the operating costs of the school, and over the years, ANZA has also helped build classrooms, provide uniforms for the children, and basic school

supplies. I decided to visit the school to see if it would be a good fit for me. I was fortunate that I had another new volunteer, Gilly Weaver, who visited with me. The children in our class were between the ages of eight and ten. Immediately, I was enchanted by their captivating smiles, positive energy and enthusiasm to learn. I was impressed to see the eagerness and the motivation in the children’s eyes to soak up every new English word, phrase and expression. Gilly and I conducted an impromptu session with our class and we both enjoyed it immensely. The students show tremendous potential and are as creative as they are restless. I also had the opportunity of working closely with the project’s coordinator, Sarah Rees, who has been nothing short of a gem. She is an inspiration, having taught at Nurani Insani for the past three years. Apart from my young pupils, I also helped Sarah teaching the older high school students in the afternoon. Having dealt with teenagers in Singapore, I felt quite comfortable connecting and engaging with both younger children and the teenagers. Teaching at Nurani Insani felt like a natural fit. What followed and still continues to follow is a wonderful collaboration between Gilly and myself. Our English classes are conducted on Thursdays from 9.30am until about 11am. Afterwards we hold our ‘socialisation’ session with the children in the small canteen area where we bring them milk and biscuits. Since we started visiting Nurani Insani, we have grown immensely as teachers, both creatively and personally. As there is no fixed curriculum, we have to come up with our own lesson plans and activities each week. Having a fellow volunteer makes teaching easier and much more fun of course. It is also practical as we can cover for each other whenever either of us is unable to make it or not in town. Apart from my class at Nurani Insani on Thursday mornings, my other voluntary work began as a chance encounter. It happened at a coffee morning on a Friday at ANZA where I was casually chatting with a fellow Social Welfare committee member, Nancy Jacobs, who has since returned to Australia. She told me about a young lady, Evi, whom she had got to know and was helping. Evi is a paraplegic, due to an accident when she was nine in her hometown Bandung, and she currently lives in a residence for paraplegics, Loka Bina Karya, in Jakarta Timur. Even though she stopped her formal education after her accident, Evi is a wonder to many. She keeps a diary in which she writes in near perfect English about her dreams and aspirations. It is incredible to

note that she has been self-taught through listening to the radio, watching the television and recently through intermittent internet access. Having listened to Evi’s story, I was in awe of her and immediately jumped at the chance of possibly helping her with her English. The trip to her residence was a long and winding one from my home in Pondok Indah to Jakarta Timur. The one to two hours on the road seemed like eternity but did not dampen my eagerness to meet this special young lady. It was worth the drive as I was blown away immediately upon meeting her. She is petite and is paralysed from her hips down. Yet, you can’t help but be wrapped up by her immense warmth and smile. I could not believe that she had stopped her schooling and was selftaught. Amazingly we were able to communicate effortlessly. I also learnt that Nancy and another fellow volunteer, Yvonne Robb, had been personally helping Evi with medical supplies such as dressings and medication for an infected and chronic bed sore that had left a gaping hole on her hip. Even with her medical complications and inability to walk, Evi exudes an infectious charm and exuberance for life. I also met her equally charming friend Mella. As a way of earning some money to buy necessities, Evi and Mella make their own range of handmade lovely bags and purses from emptied coffee sachets, pillowcases, tissue holders and other interesting items. They are an incredible duo and their creativity and attention to detail is evident through the quality of the items they produce. As we got acquainted, we discovered that we were close in age and instantly connected as if we had known each other for years. When visiting Evi and Mella, an unexpected surprise came when I found myself surrounded by other interested residents who had heard about possible English lessons. I had to suddenly think of an impromptu session as those ‘onlookers’ had come already equipped with their note pads and pens. Turning them down would have been uncomfortable and awkward. Quickly, I thought of a few introductory games that were positively received. I never expected that my solo tutoring would turn into subsequent group English teaching sessions on Tuesdays at Loka Bina Karya with a group of very

enthusiastic students. It is also heartening to know that ANZA is also investigating ways of providing regular medical supplies for the residents. From my volunteer teaching at Nurani Insani and Loka Bina Karya, I feel I learn more from my students than I think I teach them. They have reinforced my belief that there are many diamonds in the rough that are waiting to be discovered and polished so as to shine brightly. All they need is an opportunity and someone to believe in them. What I continue to take away from the students I teach is their unceasing spirit and the ability to smile through the various obstacles that life throws at them. Frustrations from so many situations will inevitably surface but why not share a smile or laughter along the way? I continue to face moments where the traffic just to get Nurani Insani and Loka Bina Karya is impossible and I feel tempted to turn back and feign an excuse for not turning up. What keeps me going? I truly believe that my time and service is only a tiny contribution to the huge spectrum of needs out there. However, through interacting with the incredible people in my classes, my horizons have been broadened. I feel truly blessed not just by realizing how very privileged we are but also by having been taught in return. I am learning every day and seeing things through a different lens. Volunteering in Jakarta is a fun-filled ride complete with chaos, frustrations, tears and sweat, but with a whole load of love and laughter to complete the journey. There are things you will never be able to change. Accept it, manage it and do not forget to enjoy the smiles along the way.

ANZA ADVENTURE DAY

Jewellery A

t the end of January, we went exploring to the Pasar Minggu area. We went to Ibu Yekti’s Javanese home where she spoke about the process of making the beads which she uses in her jewellery making. We then had the opportunity to choose our own beads and design which was then made up by one of her helpers. We also had the opportunity to try making our own, but lack of time prohibited us from doing this. Maybe we will go back and give this a try next time! Ibu Yekti was very helpful, friendly and patient with all of us there needing a hand. It was a great morning out, and I look forward to going back to organize presents to take home as gifts.

Nikoi island O

riginally intended as a private retreat for the 6 expats from Singapore, who purchased this 15 hectare Island of shell strewn beaches, extrodinary rock formations, virgin rainforest with colossal banyan trees, pristine reefs and mangroves, it has become a comfortable, environmentaly sensitive, boho, family friendly resort. The owners all have children so from the initital planning and development of Nikoi, childrens interests were taken into account. So it was an ideal place to take out kids. There are rope swings, tree houses, beaches to comb, craft workshops,

dress ups for wannabe pirates and mermaids, treasure to find, jungle to explore, crabs to chase and boulders to climb. For the older ones there are kayaks, paddleboards, windsurfers and sailing boats. There are 15 private two story beach houses spaced out over a 5 hectre site on the western side of the Island. The remaining 10 hectares have been reserved as a sanctuary to ensure that the environmental impact is minimal and that there are plenty of tranquil and secluded areas to explore. You can even take a day trip with a picnic to a deserted Island near by.

As you can see from the pictures the rooms are spacious and handcrafted from driftwood with vernacular “alang alang� grass roofs and balconies that catch the cool sea breezes. The food was fantastic and you could eat in your beach house or at the club house. While each beach house has an Ipod speaker system and there is mobile phone reception, there is no TV or computers. The open air decks have day beds and bale and on request an icebox and well stocked bar, definitely designed for all day relaxing and chilling out, which we took total advantage of. Also as you can see I took quite a few pictures! Getting there is trip in its self, 90 minute flight with Lion Air or Sriwijaya Air then a 30 minute taxi ride followed by a 30 minute boat ride. All well organised and worth the trip.

Selamat Tinggal Jakarta What I will miss the most: What I will miss the most: “Like in Jakarta as an expat has been extraordinary, as in far from ordinary, full of contrast that have highlighted how fortunate I am to have the life and opportunities that I do and taught me greater appreciation for and gratitude for many things I had previously taken for granted. There is richness to life here that goes beyond money. I will miss the heart and care of the expat community, who have shown me so much fun and generosity. I will also miss the everyday awareness of 1st and 3rd world problems and the smile of the locals faces as they step out of their kampung’s in their clean and neatly pressed clothes and the wonder in my mind as to how it is possible. “ Car free day - Example of Jakartas organised Chaos (photo by John Belcher)

(15 months in Jakarta)

“ I will miss the people and the organised chaos that is Jakarta” - Janine Spencer (3 years in Jakarta)

“I’ll miss the adventure theme park that is Jakarta. Who needs a rollercoaster when crossing the road will give you the same adrenalin rush, who needs bungy jumping when less than 1,000rp will get you a ride on a kabuja or Ojak and scare the day lights out of you, take a chance on the tower of terror, I get more thrills and stomach turning from eating at the local warung in Cilincing. I will miss the people, the constant smiles, the deep fried bananas, having a driver, the shopping, having the doors held open, the unreliability of the internet and cellular networks so that I occasionally relive 1988, the sights I have seen, and especially the people I have met, oh and did I mention deep fried bananas?” - Annette McDougal (2 years in Jakarta)

“Goodbye Jakarta! I shall miss the inspiring people I have met along with all of the wonderful friends I have made.” - Jillian Lister

Are you Negative or Positive? Important information you need to know in case of emergency or when being admitted to hospital.

I

f you require an urgent blood transfusion in Indonesia, the hospital will arrange for the correct blood type to be ordered. Rh neg blood is very rare in Indonesians and as such there is a volunteer blood donor committee who works with the Red Cross and can assist to organise urgent donation from a registry of volunteer expatriates in the event Rh neg blood (or other blood types) is limited or not available. Please always remember that as per WHO, screening for HIV is not universal (97%) and the HIV testing across all of Indonesia is not to level of international standards, although the Red Cross is currently beginning a role out of the international standard HIV test. The ANZA membership team is currently in the process of renewing and updating all our membership details. As you may be aware, one of the key pieces of information that we request on our membership forms is our members’ blood group. This information is kept completely confidential, and is only ever used to contact you

if there is an emergency need for blood, within the Jakarta expat community. If the donation of blood in such a dire situation is something you would consider, and you are happy to be contacted at that time, please let our membership team know your name and blood group information. If any of your contact or personal information has changed please send an email to anza_ membership@yahoo.com.au. Especially if you are negative blood type you may wish to register, as you cannot easily get that blood type here.

Know your blood group and always contact your regular medical assistance company if you or your family is admitted to hospital and the medical team is proposing blood products.

Expat Expert” Kelly’s Survival Guide to Life in Indonesia

A

fter more than ten years in Jakarta and being a mother of two young boys (who were made in Indonesia/born in NZ), I’ve caught on how to take advantage of the little things to make life easier here and avoid those many “Indonesian moments”. The Berita Editors thought I’d be the ideal candidate to offer helpful hints and answer all those questions about life in Jakarta. If you have any questions on living in Indonesia for future issues please forward them to me via email marked “Expat Expert” at anzaberita@gmail.com

Volunteering Life in Jakarta is never boring; but some people find it hard to fill in their days and meet like minded people when arriving in our big city. Or maybe you’ve been here when your expat friends have all left without you. One of the best ways to overcome the boredom or loneliness is to volunteer your time to help others and yourself. Volunteer ing isn’t all one sided. People often believe if you join a committee or lend a hand you get stuck. They don’t look at what they can get out of volunteering. Just think of all the new friends you make, the skills you will learn and the satisfaction you can achieve. You need to find your niche. Think outside the box. You don’t necessarily need to work with existing skills. This can be a great opportunity to broaden your horizons and obtain a whole heap of valuable skills or experience for future employment opportunities. You never know how handy these might come in when you return to the work force in the real world (as I call it). Look at things you’ve always thought you’d like to do and expand. I used to love fiddling with making greeting cards on simple programs. I volunteered as Ball Co-ordinator (as I am also bossy at heart and a like the odd party). I designed the posters and invitations, which in turn lead to learning graphic design skills needed to volunteer for the layout job of the Berita. Now I have a small business making

my own funky greeting cards and art. Without these opportunities I probably would never have broadened my skill base. Take on a leadership role. You will learn to write letters with flair, to calm your nerves and tackle public speaking, manage other volunteers and meet many interesting people with invitations rolling in to various functions and events around town. There are so many opportunities at anytime. Be it helping out on the Social Welfare Committee, working on the front desk or taking on the role as President, get out there and help yourself. You won’t regret if you remember it isn’t one sided. A New Zealand Maori Proverb Ko taku rourou Ko tau rou rou Ka ora te tangata With my resources And your resources Everyone will benefit Volunteers are seldom paid; not because they are worthless, but because they are PRICELESS! --author unknown
