This technology represents a significant advance in the complex treatment of many skin conditions including: stretch marks, wrinkles, chronological and actinic aging. This is based on the highly innovative technology diodes (LED "Light Emitting Diode") emitting monochromatic cold light. ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR CELLULAR REJUVENATION Depending on the indication (scarring, hair loss, rashes, stretch marks ...), different colours are combined to stimulate cell metabolism: yellow, blue, red and infrared. When a cell is hit by a wave of light, depending on the wavelength of the light beam, it will enter into "resonance" and turmoil caused by the absorption of light energy will cause chemical and physical changes that will stimulate cell activity. The skin cells possess receptors and the principle of light collection is similar to the photosynthesis of plants. Stimulation of cells with LED light triggers a metabolic reprogramming that will speed up or calm different processes. With this process scientifically proven by several medical studies, your skin is part of its elasticity and its original properties and wrinkles, stretch marks, acne or aging skin fade in a few sessions without having to subject your skin to surgical treatment or injections. emitting monochromatic cold light.

Changing cash for Indonesian Rupiah will give you the best exchange rate. Withdrawing cash with your debit or credit card often will yield a less favourable rate plus a withdrawal charge on top. Beware of unscrupulous money exchangers offering, what appears a wonderful exchange rate. At best, there will be an undisclosed charge (always ask before handing over your money) or you may find yourself the victim of magical slight of hand. Ask at your hotel or a trusted expat where to go.
MARCH 2015 Issue #20
There are ceremonies happening every month all over Bali. Roads in tourist areas such as Kuta can often be closed to allow ceremonial processions. Enjoy the visually exciting and colouful events and treat them with the upmost respect. Observers are cheerfully welcomed by the Balinese but they will not tolerate undue interference or disrespect. Try to learn some phrases in Bahasa while you are here, the words for thank you and simple phrases that will help you buy in shops and order in restaurants.
Motorcycle riders and their passengers must wear a correctly fastened and approved helmet. Fines may be imposed for non-compliance. In the event of an accident, foreigners may be assumed to be at fault and expected to make financial restitution to all other parties. You must also be in the possession of an international driving license. Failure to produce one if you are stopped by the police will result in an on the spot penalty fine or an appearance at court. The roads can be dangerous, be vigilant.
A word of caution to all. The law in Bali is unequivocal when it comes to the use of or possession of illegal drugs – YOU are in big trouble so DO NOT do it. Your embassy or consulate will not offer you much in the way of assistance if you are caught smuggling drugs into Bali, caught with drugs in your possession whilst here in or appear to be under the influence (they can and will blood test you). You will find yourself in prison and you can be prosecuted for the death sentence if the intent is considered to supply.
LOCAL NEWS & EVENTS
IMPORTANT BALINESE CEREMONIES IN MARCH 20TH MARCH - NGRUPUK PARADE(OGOH-OGOH) Exactly one day before Nyepi, all villages in Bali hold a large exorcism ceremony at the main village cross road, the meeting place of demons. They usually make Ogoh-ogoh (the fantastic monsters or evil spirits or the Butha Kala made of bamboo) for carnival purposes. The Ogoh-ogoh monsters symbolize the evil spirits surrounding our environment which have to be got rid of from our lives. The carnivals themselves are held all over Bali following sunset. Bleganjur, Balinese gamelan music, accompanies the procession. Some are giants taken from classical Balinese lore. All have fangs, bulging eyes and scary hair and are illuminated by torches. During the procession, the Ogoh-ogoh is rotated
counter-clockwise three times. This act is done at every T-junction and crossroad of the village. Rotating the effigies during the ceremonial parade and the eve of Nyepi represents the contact of the bodies with the spirits. It is intended to bewilder the evil spirits so that they go away and cease harming human beings. The procession is usually organised by the Seka Teruna, the youth organization of Banjar. When Ogoh-Ogoh is being played by the Seka Teruna, everyone enjoys the carnival. In the evening, the Hindus celebrating Ngrupuk, start making noises and light burning torches and set fire to the Ogohogoh’s in order to get the Bhuta Kala, evil spirits, out of their lives.
21ST MARCH – NYEPI Nyepi is a “Day of Silence” that is commemorated every Isakawarsa (Saka New Year) according to the Sasih Balinese calendar. It is a Hindu celebration and a public holiday in Indonesia. On the day of Nyepi (literally meaning ‘silence’) the whole of Bali lies still. There is no one out on the streets, nothing opens in the way of shops or offices and the sound of traffic is nonexistent. Strictly observed from 6 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning, Nyepi is a day reserved for self-reflection and as such, anything that might interfere with that purpose is restricted. On Nyepi Day, the Hindus stay at home but they are not supposed to listen to the radio, watch TV, speak to each other, answer telephones or take in guests. Instead, they should lay and meditate in darkness or have prayers at their own pura (little house-shrine in the front part of the home) to work out on the inner part of their spiritual life. The only people to be seen outdoors are the Pecalang, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed. Although Nyepi is primarily a Hindu holiday, non-Hindu residents of Bali observe the day of silence as well, out of respect for their fellow citizens. Even tourists are not exempt; although free to do as they wish inside their hotels, no one is allowed onto the beaches or the streets. The Ngurah Rai International Airport and all harbor accesses to Bali remain closed for the entire day. The only exceptions granted are for emergency vehicles carrying those with life-threatening conditions and women about to give birth. For most tourists and expats, Nyepi can be an inconvenience but it can also be an amazing experience. It’s a great time to sleep, read a book or do something that doesn’t involve travelling that you’ve been putting off. It could also be a day to spend with your family. On the day after Nyepi, known as Ngembak Geni, social activity picks up again quickly, as families and friends gather to ask forgiveness from one another and to perform certain religious rituals together.

BALI SPORTS FOUNDATION PARALYMPIC SHOOTING CLUB by Rodney Holt
Competing in their own class,now the disabled shooters of Bali Sports Foundation Paralympic Shooting Club, are competing in the Walikota Cup, the Bali Championships in the open class, ie against able bodied shooters. As BSF founder Rodney Holt explains: “We encourage our parathletes to compete in integrated competitions, as this gets them (the parathletes) into the greater community, and gives them greater self confidence. Shooting, together with archery being stationary, allows athletes with mobility disabilities to compete relatively equally.” In IPC Shooting we have, three different sport classes for athletes with physical impairments: Sport Class SH1 (Pistol): This sport class is designated to athletes with upper and/or lower limb impairment for competition in Pistol events. Sport Class SH1 (Rifle): This sport class is designnated to athletes with lower limb impairment for competition in Rifle events. Sport Class SH2: This sport class is for rifle events only, and is designated to athletes with upper limb impairment (which necessitates them to use a shooting stand to support the rifle), all or not in combination with lower limb impairment. These competitions follow the launching on Saturday November 22, 2014, of the BSF Paralympic Shooting Club (BSFPSC) at the Tohpati shooting range. Headed by veteran shooter Berman Simorangkir, BSFPSC was created by Rodney Holt of Bali Sports Foundation, with the aim of tapping into the potential of disabled shooters. Shooters compete in 10 metre air rifle or pistol, 25 and 50 meter rifle. Focusing on polio, amputee and paraplegic athletes, the sport of target shooting is proving popular amongst the comunity of people with disabilities, with over 25 active participants. As Club chairman Berman Simorangkir explained" "I am both amazed and impressed by the passion and enthusiasm of the disabled athletes, we have a number of good prospects,that hopefully can qualify for the Singapore ASEAN Para Games in December 2015." Holt continues “Because there is no other paralympic shooters in Indonesia, to get a measure of our progress, BSF in April is planning to send the best shooters together with their coaches to Thailand, for further training and to see how they measure up internationally and get ready for Singapore in December.” 2015 BSF EVENTS (more to come)

09 GOLF FOR FUN OR GOLF FOR GLORY, PAR 5 CLUB WELCOMES YOU P5C: OFFERING GOLF AT LEISURE FOR SOCIAL GOLFERS, A CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE COMPETITIVE AMATEUR AND A LEADER BOARD FOR MEMBERS
PAR 5 CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES 2015 LEADER BOARD Players Tony F. Patrick G. Trevor Q. Sven K. John P. Mark W. Gérard M. Charles H. Iñaki G. Robert B. Darren K. Tim E. Gideon F. Tim W.
SOCIAL GOLF GALORE At least twice a week P5C brings together some 30 or more social golfers to play a round of golf with each other in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. At NIRWANA BALI GC we tee-off every Tuesday at 1 pm, while on Fridays we meet up at Bali Beach GC for a tee-time at 12 o’clock noon. Because there can never be too much golf in our lives, every two weeks another one of these P5C Clubdays is held at New Kuta Golf in Pecatu, teeing off at 1.30 pm. On all our Clubdays we organise a small competition of some sort, usually a Stableford format and sometimes a Texas Scramble, for those of our members & guests who just love to compete. When we have enough female contenders, they are invited to play in their own Ladies Division, but they’re also always welcome to mix it up with the boys. Participation in these competitions however is never mandatory. COMPETITION GOLF FOR AMATEURS P5C nevertheless offers an outlet for the hard-core competitive amateur golfer as well. All our members and guests - on condition that they can supply a properly established golf handicap - can compete in any of our Club Championship Series, which consists of 9 competition rounds held on different golf courses throughout Indonesia. Four of these rounds are in Bali, the other five rounds are part of short, packaged golf trips with two-day tournaments in Surabaya, Makassar, Bandung, Jakarta and Yogyakarta. Every round of the P5C Championship Series is a tournament in its own right, with prizes and trophies available to every contender after every round. THE P5C LEADER BOARD For P5C members however, the stakes are higher, as these tournaments offer them the opportunity to collect points towards the P5C Leader Board. At the end of the year, the winner on this Leader Board will be awarded the much coveted title and trophy of P5C 2015 Club Champion. By the time this article goes to press, Round 3 of the Club Championship Series will have been done and dusted at the magnificent Padivalley Golf Course near Makassar in South Sulawesi. But there is plenty more to come and as a P5C member you only need to play in 3 of the 9 rounds in order to qualify for the title, so the championship is still wide open. NO MEMBER? NO HANDICAP? NO WORRIES! If you’re not a P5C member and/or don’t have a well-documented, verifiable handicap yet, you can still come and play along with us on Clubdays outside the competitions, just for fun. And if you sign up for membership, we’ll start collecting scoring data for you right away, so we can establish a proper handicap for you in no time and invite you for the competitions and tournaments. Moreover you’ll also be able to enjoy our exclusive member’s rates and privileges at our partner golf courses. To sign up, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and before you know it you might be in the running for the Club Championship!

TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND EXPERIENCE THE TRUE TASTE OF BALI WAPA DI UME OFFER AN INTIMATE COOKING CLASS WITH AN EXPERIENCED BALINESE CHEF. You begin by selecting vegetables, spices, meat and fish at a local Balinese morning market, accompanied by a knowledgeable guide to explain the variety of the delights on offer and how best to chose and barter for them. You are then taught how to prepare and cook some of Bali’s favourite dishes in a traditional Balinese kitchen under the tutelage of an experienced Balinese chef. Finally, you get to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour in an idyllic Balinese setting overlooking scenic rice fields and lush vegetation with a rainforest backdrop. Sounds good doesn’t it? Together with my friend Laurent and his daughter Margaux (our photographer for the day), we went along to see for ourselves. Greeted upon arrival with the warmth of Dewi charming smile, we were escorted through reception to the dining balcony and offered refreshments. Enjoying a much needed coffee or three, we all gazed admiringly at the surroundings. The balcony (in the banner at the bottom of the page) overlooks the resort and draws you in to rural Bali, everything about the design and decor of the buildings and villas that make up Wapa Di Ume are spacious and luxurious but somehow remain traditional and true to Bali. Dewi returned and explained how our experience will unfold. Number one on our itinerary, off to the local market we go. The Market Chauffeured to the local Balinese market in central Ubud, you find yourself in a maze of buzzing morning activity. The market opens from 4am-8am to cater for the locals and then performs a rapid makeover to appeal to the tourists (prices go up!). Each of us had a list of what was needed and Dewi did a marvellous job of showing us around and explaining what all the exotic and weird looking produce was – a practical, educational excursion that will definitely help and give confidence to my future market shopping trips.
Balinese prepare this slightly differently but it provides the base to many dishes (similar to “Garam Masala” used as the base in many Indian recipes). The composition of the Bumbu that we prepared comprised of 14 different ingredients.
Driven back to the resort, the time now 9am, we opted to relax and enjoy some breakfast followed by a leisurely stroll around the gardens of the resort (I brought my swimming gear with me, so I went for a swim, there are several pools to choose from). Serene, tranquil, soothing – I want to stay here!
Vegetable, chicken and seafood stocks had already been prepared (you don’t need to be taught these things!) so making my Clear Seafood Soup took a matter of minutes.
The Cooking Class At 10.30am, a little golf buggy thingy came and picked us up and took us to the kitchen. We were introduced to Nawi, one of two head chefs at the resort and each of us given a booklet containing our menus. The kitchen is outdoors inside a traditional bale boasting a clay oven which was busily steaming rice. Beside the kitchen is their very own organic garden so you really are in a natural setting cooking with nature. There are 2 menus to choose from. Firstly, and most importantly, was the preparation of “Bumbu Kuning” or “Basic Sauce”. All
Chopping onions and garlic to combine with a variety of herbs and spices with a huge wooden pastel and mortar was fun and an invaluable experience, smashing and grinding them all together until you are left with a yellowy paste. I can confidently experiment with my own “Bumbu Kuning” from now on.
Now I get to use the “Bumbu Kuning” to make my “Beef Base Genep”. Using 200g of quality imported Australian tenderloin, garlic, onion, coconut milk, salam (bay) leaves, lemon grass and a large dollop of Bunbu - fantastic. Chef Nawi held my hand, so to speak as I then tackled the dessert menu, teaching me some tricks of the trade along the way. The photographs on this page are what we actually managed to serve. The day was most enjoyable and I hope that some of you reading this will try the experience out for yourselves. If you do, email me directly and tell me what you thought.

15 INDONESIAN INGREDIENTS: RED RICE
FOOD & DINING
By Virgina Entizne of Cuca Restaurant
Red rice is a very unique variety of rice used for thousands of years and red in colour because it contains an antioxidant pigment called anthocyanin. It is considered a whole grain, which means that it has been minimally processed and thus retains its nutrient rich red husk. This type of rice has a stronger, nutty-full flavour and a wonderful chewiness that white rice lacks. Whole grain rice is not husked so it takes longer to cook but it also tends to be more flavourful, aromatic and obviously more colourful. When red rice is cooked, the natural red colour in the bran, or hull of the rice, leaches out and dyes the rest of the dish pink. Red
rice is packed with nutrients such as B-group vitamins, iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, copper, selenium and zinc. It is also very rich in proteins and high in fibre, because of the bran. Traditionally in Indonesia, red rice was considered a limited food grown and consumed only by the royal family and nobility and even until today itâ€™s eaten only on special occasions or made into a healthy porridge for the very young and old. Red rice makes such a tasty and textured base for food that you donâ€™t need to add much to make a satisfying meal. It can be served with a variety of foods in addition to being eaten on its own or try to use it for risotto , or any other rice dish.
TRY THIS RECIPE! Iced Rice Tea 1. Cook the red rice in a pan on low heat for about 10 minutes stirring constantly. 2.
Add chopped orange peel and rosemary and cook another 10 minutes until rice is rich dark brown color. Be very careful to cook slowly and do not burn.
3. Let cool and store in air tight jar until needed. 4.
In a tea pot put 3-4 tablespoon of rice and add 3 cups of hot water. Let infuse a few minutes.
Serve warm or over ice with honey.

About the Festival Weeks before the Festival, Ubud begins to fill with a colourful, international tribe of conscientious travellers, gathering in anticipation of one of the world’s most inspiring events. The first Festival in 2008 was pulled together in just three months-an incredible achievement for the Festival’s founders, as well as a dream come true: They shared a vision to create a Festival that would both build and support community through the full spectrum of yoga and a rich diversity of world music and dance.

This unique series of concerts knits together the distinctive traditional and contemporary music of Bali and greater Indonesia with visiting artists from every world genre and every of the globe.

OUTREACH Bali ReGreen One of the most exciting and long-term sustainable environmental projects in the region, fighting not only the land degradation in the island’s driest area but injecting training which will lead to long term economic benefits for some of Bali’s poorest people.
Why Do We Need To Regreen Bali? Looking around at the lush green of Central Bali, it’s hard to imagine that huge tracts of the island, especially in the east, are dry and have almost no vegetation. The communities that live in these arid and damaged areas are the poorest in Bali. Since 2011, BaliSpirit Festival and Yayasan Kryasta Guna have partnered with the Environmental Bamboo Foundation (EBF) to plant 4,300 bamboo seedlings in Desa Songan, East Bali. Located in the caldera of Batur volcano, this is one of the 82 poorest villages in Bali, with a huge 35% of its 8,000 people living below the poverty line. The people in this area have two major obstacles to overcome: a harsh environment with land degradation and a lack of economic opportunity. At BaliSpirit, we believe that re-greening is more than looking after and giving back to the earth, we must also look after its people. So, BaliSpirit doesn’t just plant bamboo, our extended team of staff and volunteers train village farmers to care for the soon-to-be bamboo forest on their previously unproductive land. In the long term, planting bamboo helps to bring water to arid land and rehabilitate it, while in the short term it contributes in developing a small-scale micro-economy in these affected communities.
MARCH 2015 Issue #20
Why Bamboo? Bamboo makes great water catchment area protection. Because of the wide-spreading root system, uniquely shaped leaves, and dense litter on the forest floor, bamboo greatly reduces rain runoff, preventing massive soil erosion in the water catchment area and retaining up to twice as much water within that soil. Songan lies in the water catchment area that flows into Batur Lake, the second largest water reservoir for the entire island of Bali. Water from here feeds huge tracts of Bali’s famed rice fields, so this project will have a big impact.
AYO! Kita Bicara HlV dan AIDS (Hey! Let’s Talk About HIV and AIDS) Launched in 2010, this is an ongoing educational campaign dedicated to address the growing epidemic of HlV in Bali. The annual Edu Spirit Workshops for Balinese high schools and HIV & AIDS Awareness Concert engage youth as agents of change and encourage open communication to spread accurate information about the virus and its prevention. It empowers teenagers to keep and maintain their own physical and emotional health and have empathy with other people in their community, to assist teenagers to change to more positive behaviour, improving their access to health services, driving down the dissemination rate of HIV & AIDS and encouraging teenagers to act positively towards ODHA and the ODHA family.

Since 2008, through its Karma Yoga Outreach Programs, the BaliSpirit Festival has helped to raise over USD $85,000 for its outreach initiatives, including children’s programs, multi-cultural collaborations, HIV & AIDS awareness and environmental programs.

A JOURNEY FROM NOWHERE TO NOWHERE by Rick Pursell
I remember who/what I am I remember Oneness
Reflections of days gone by, but still very much present Everything is arising out of consciousness. A consciousness that remains a Mystery, the Great Unknowable, The Void, The Unified Field, call it what you will, but whatever it is called, remains a mere label, a signpost and not the actual thing (or no-thing!!).
we latch on to and believe, and what emerges into our awareness is Oneness is playing a game of Twoness in order to bring us back to Oneness. What a magnificent game and all I can do is to express my upmost gratitude for every emerging moment.
The apparent or illusionary self is just that, an illusion. For there is just This, arising, and any form of separateness is only an apparency. Oneness is oneness; it is an absence of two-ness and that is the nature of the Universe. What is arising is all there is. Such simplicity, such profound simplicity, which is so easily overlooked.
The dust rises up from the road, mingles with the smell of diesel and drifts through the open window of the bus, rattling over potholed surfaces, and I am reminded – I (consciousness) Am That.
I am perfectly comfortable with this, with no resistance or nonacceptance. All there is, is what is arising in this moment, and this moment, and this moment, ad infinitum. And then the illusionary self arises and with it, thoughts and concepts of separateness that
The white heron paces stealth-fully across the water in search of food, its plumage a stark contrast to the verdant green stands of rice, and I am reminded – I Am That. An old, weather-beaten man, wise in years, rests in the shade, his trusty walking stick with its polished surface propped alongside, and I am reminded – I Am That. The aliveness of smiling school
children, their pearly white teeth shining brightly, reflecting their innocent hearts, the smell of fresh cow dung and apricot coloured clouds at sunset, and I am reminded – I Am That. Drains clogged with discarded plastic bags and rubbish, tainted waters, cracked adobe walls and naked chickens hanging undignified from food stalls, and I am reminded – I Am That. Consciousness arising and manifesting magnificently in this precious moment of Now, as the world we see, touch, hear, smell and taste, and I am reminded – I Am That. It arises and falls away and it is all perfect. That is all there is, look no further, seek not that which is not right in front of you right now, for that, is all there is.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled.” “For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” - M.

MARCH 2015 Issue #20
23 Aries The month of March has never really been your cup of tea; you are feeling tired and have no will to make much of an effort. But do not forget your responsibilities; you could get a negative backlash at work. At home, life is quiet as you do your best to make the atmosphere full of love for everyone.
Cancer Climate is tense, as you show an unusual intransigence in your relationships. Why feel jealous? There is absolutely no reason. Come back to your natural gentle attitude, be confident, listen to others and do not hesitate to share anxieties and confidences with your best friend, it will help.
Libra Unexpected events will make you rethink your plans. Share your worries with your partner, who will help you to find appropriate solutions and restore your selfconfidence. Keep calm, analyse all the details before making a decision and trust your loved ones, everything will soon be back to normal.
Capricorn Your silent and detached nature creates some distance between you and others. Try to restore polite exchanges and dialogue, and your arguments will be accepted and will allow for changes in your professional life. Your colleagues will help you and you will rediscover the pleasure of being part of a team again.
MARCH 2015 Issue #20
1 - 31 MARCH 2015 Taurus A nice month, as you feel full of fondness and love for all humanity. This unusual attitude â€“ as you are more often selfish and centred on your personal targets - destabilises your family and your circle of acquaintances, as they realise that you have never seemed better. But you will not forget your own needs!
Leo Nice feelings and emotions are all around you. You are in such a positive mood that all the highways of life open up in front of you without obstruction. Do not forget to take advantage of the transit of Jupiter in your sign till the end of next August. Whatever your goals are, you will reach them easily.
Scorpio You love and you are loved. This sudden puff of unusual romanticism puts you in a state of mind you have never experienced before. Do not neglect your friends or your job during this wave amorous feelings, the realities are still there and will have to be confronted one day or the other.
Aquarius Share your feelings, express your frustrations and then move forward, do not stew in trivial matters. Put some order in your projects and priorities and stay neutral in case of any conflict around you. Mind your own business; this is the secret if you do not want to put yourself in an uncomfortable situation.
FATE & FORTUNE
Gemini No hurry! Learn to be patient; you will soon get the reward for all that you have done during the last months. Stand back, it is in the reflection that you will succeed best and will reach your goals. As usual you do not dedicate enough time to your fitness or your family. A little effort would be the welcome.
Virgo The wise Virgo is turning into the foolish Virgo! And he/she is going to love it, to the astonishment of their family and colleagues at work. An enjoyable effect of Spring? Or maybe the intuition that this year is clearly an important one in the course of your life, for the best? Keep on being positive.
Sagittarius You are dreaming of taking an exciting vacation in place you have never been to, your usual environment seems a bit boring right now. Why not plan a trip abroad, where you can explore new places and meet new people? You are the traveller of the Zodiac and staying too long in the same place is not for you.
Pisces Life is so quiet at the moment that you start feeling it is dull. Your private life will improve by the end of the month, little misunderstandings will be cleared up and the general climate will be more peaceful. At work, you will have trouble having your ideas accepted. April, though will be much more fun.
PISCES and PROFESSIONAL LIFE â€“ The natives of Pisces have a very developed intuition, allowing them to understand and help others. They often dedicate themselves to an ideal which guides their professional life. Being big sentimentalists, they obviously feel at ease in artistic fields such as music, dance and acting. Water being their element, all the jobs where their condolence and spirit of dedication can express themselves completely. Their intuition and sense of help to others also makes them perfect for all professions liked to medicine, psychology and science. Personalities so varied as Einstein, Chopin, Copernicus and Nijinsky were born under this sign. Following extensive studies in traditional astrology under numerous teachers and masters, Anne-Marie Comoretto has turned to psychoanalytic astrology and is fascinated by the concept collective conscience. With background in international business, she now consults and teaches in English, Italian, German and French. Based in Paris, Anne-Marie has taught at Adac and is affiliated with FDAF and CEDRA. astrologieet-developpement.over-blog.fr

Tim Roth to show off his talents as one of television’s most skilled thespians, the season 3 finale took a step back from Roth’s scene-stealing portrayal of Dr. Cal Lightman and allowed co-star Kelli Williams to shine as Dr. Gillian Foster. Despite Williams continuously adding rich depth to her character – and to an extent Roth’s character – she’s rarely had the opportunity to take the lead, both in character performance and storyline focus. Highlighting elements from Foster’s past, while providing wonderful backstory to her character, allowed Lie to Me to expand the potential fanbase of the series and, on some level, provided viewers with another character to identify with besides Lightman.

MARCH FILM REVIEW
Wine...allegory of wealth, symbol of health, well-being, prosperity and in general, a symbol of life. The art of wine making is a very ancient one, so strongly tied to the cultures where it comes from. For this review we have choosen 4 movies that use wine as the main subject to reveal people stories, feelings and hopes. The last film “The Secret of Santa Vittoria” from 1969 with Anthony Quinn and Anna Magnani is a classic!

St. Patrick’s Day Tuesday 17th March
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, here are quotes from four of Irelands finest.
• I can resist everything but temptation. • I love scandals about other people, but scandals about myself don’t interest me. They have not got the charm of novelty. • Murder is always a mistake…One should never do anything that one cannot talk about after dinner. • There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about. • One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age. A woman who would tell one that, would tell one anything. • Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go. • Man always wants to be a women’s first love. Women Oscar Wilde - Irish writer and have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a poet (1854-1900) man’s last romance.
• The worst thing about some men is that when they are not drunk they are sober.
• Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy. • The desire that is satisfied is not a great desire, nor has the shoulder used all its might that an unbreakable gate has never strained. • Life seems to me a preparation for something that never happens.
• We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but
William Butler Yeats - Irish of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry. poet (1865-1939)
• I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversations. • Newspapers are unable, seemingly, to discriminate between a bicycle accident and the collapse of civilisation. • A man who loses his money gains, at the least, experience, and sometimes, something better.
• Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not.
George Bernard Shaw – Irish playwright (1856-1950)
• A life making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing at all.
Brendan Behan - Irish poet, novelist and playwright (1923-1964)
• The big difference between sex for money and sex for free is that sex for money usually costs a lot less. • I am a drinker with writing problems. • One drink is too many for me and a thousand not enough. • I only drink on two occasions — when I’m thirsty and when I’m not • When I came back to Dublin I was court-martialled in my absence and sentenced to death in my absence, so I said they could shoot me in my absence. • A man is already halfway in love with any woman who listens to him. • I have never seen a situation so dismal that a policeman couldn't make it worse.
April Fool’s Day? Monday February 23rd
It can be rather tricky remembering what day of the week it is living here in Bali, for some it can prove to be trickier than for others. A friend of mine, let’s call him TONY GLASS so as not to cause him any unnecessary embarrassment...
“No, this is my seat!” argued Tony on AirAsia flight QZ0502 to Singapore on a visa run, over window seat 15A. Pillow out, packed lunch to hand, Tony had just managed to make it in time to catch the flight departing Denpasar at 6.10am on Monday 23rd February (for some reason thinking it departs at 7am). Breathing a sigh of relief as he settled in, chuffed with himself that he hadn’t missed the flight, Tony was rather annoyed and then perplexed as a young lady produced her boarding pass, proving that he was indeed, sitting in her seat. Ah, thought Tony, showing his own boarding pass clearly stating “15A”, another AirAsia cock-up. An air stewardess came to settle the dispute which was swiftly resolved with Tony being escorted off the plane and out of the airport.
“If only they had printed the day (in big bold letters) as well as the date on the boarding pass, the misunderstanding could have been avoided”, pointed out Tony, not recognising his own role in this comedy of errors. After all, he had booked the flight online weeks beforehand and printed out his boarding pass several days in advance, “for some reason I had the 23rd in my head...” The security guard checked his boarding pass and allowed him into the airport. The cashier checked his boarding pass as he paid his exit fee; the security lady checked his boarding pass as Tony got in line to pass through immigration. The immigration officer, again checked his boarding pass and as Tony dashed to reach the gate in time (having believed departure time to be nearly an hour later), lounge security once again checked his boarding pass before the girl at the AirAsia desk, yep, checked his boarding pass. He even showed his boarding pass to an air stewardess as he boarded the plane.
So that makes it: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 – yes 7 chances, 8 including Tony, 8 opportunities for at least one of them to have checked the date (and known it was wrong). There were seven other individuals involved in this farce, who were all just as, ahem, alert as Tony on Monday morning, 23rd February, 2015 at Ngurah Rai International Airport – a proper ‘Fool’s Day’! Tony’s outward ticket had been booked for Tuesday 24th February, 2015, which was the date clearly printed on his boarding pass, the seat number really was 15A.

PROPERTY 31 AFFORDABLE LUXURY IN PARADISE AT DUSUN UBUD In the 1930s, Ubud, Bali was little more than a small palace and market surrounded by fertile rice paddies and lush jungle ravines, yet it still managed to attract artists and musicians from far and wide who were drawn to its unique culture, spectacular scenery, warm and welcoming residents and fresh tropical climate. Flash forward to the present and Ubud is now a thriving centre of arts and culture with world-class restaurants, cafes and boutiques, fascinating art galleries, and of course, the same natural beauty that drew those intrepid travellers in the first place. This is the setting for Dusun Ubud, a collection of private luxury villas in a tranquil resort style estate. Expected to open at the end of 2015, Dusun Ubud is located in the peaceful village of Lungsiakan, just a few kilometres from Ubud’s royal palace and just minutes from supermarkets, schools, shops, spas and the future site of an international hospital. ‘Dusun’ is the Balinese word for a small village, and the estate has been built with this harmonious community aspect in mind. The road leading to the estate passes by traditional Balinese homes, Hindu temples, and groves of coconut trees. As you pass through the stately entrance of Dusun Ubud, and the property opens up to 11 well-spaced villas, each offering vistas of emerald green rice paddies as far as the eye can see. South easterly breezes flow freely across the fields here, and the only sounds you hear are birds chirping and the wind rustling through the palm trees. Each of the villas at Dusun Ubud has been designed to the highest standard using quality materials like volcanic stone and local hardwood, and they feature two or three spacious bedrooms, stylish living and dining areas, modern kitchens, private swimming pools, and verdant gardens. Ample parking is available in a dedicated area on the estate, and residents and guests can take advantage of the generous public areas and facilities. In addition, the security post means you never have to worry about outside intrusions. As an added bonus, Dusun Ubud is under full professional property management, so staff members are always on hand to tend to the gardens and pools and clean the interiors. This is true whether you are using the villa as a private home, part-time holiday home, or rental investment. Already garnering interest in international markets, the villas are currently available for lease for a 25-year period with a guaranteed extension of 30 years available on completion of the original lease. And following the developers’ concept of affordable luxury in paradise, they are offering very competitive starting prices and flexible terms of payment that can be spread over 12 months. For those looking to carve out a space of their own in the highly desirable tropical abode of Ubud, Dusun Ubud is the ideal spot. Modern, manageable and conveniently located close to state-ofthe-art facilities, the villas place you firmly in the twenty-first century, while the unique culture and unspoiled nature of Ubud makes you feel as though you have escaped back to a simpler time.

A tangible experience of the divine is waiting for you.
