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.

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 helmets. 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.








This holiday is most commonly associated internationally as a commemoration of the achievements of the labour movement and the rights of workers. The 1st May date is used because in 1884 the American Federation of Organized Trades and Labour Unions demanded an eight-hour workday, to come in effect as of 1 May 1886. This resulted in the general strike and the Haymarket Riot of 1886, but eventually also in the official sanction of the eight-hour workday. In some countries, it is officially ”Labour Day” while in others, the public holiday marks the traditional ‘Spring festival’ known as “May Day”. In much of Europe, it was and remains a celebration of spring and the rebirth taking place in nature dating back to pre-Christian pagan times. Every year on Labour Day, workers take over the streets in major cities across Indonesia, voicing their demands for better income and more supportive policy from the ministries.

Ascension Day is officially celebrated on a

The Prophet Mohammad lived in and around the area that is now Saudi Arabia in the years 570 CE to 632 CE in the Gregorian calendar. According to Islamic belief, Allah took him on a two-part journey sometime around the year 620 CE. The first part of the journey, known as Isra, was from Mecca to the “furthest” mosque. It is believed that Mohammad was shown heaven and hell in the second part of the journey, known as Mi’raj. In heaven, he talked with many prophets, including Jesus and Moses and received instructions on Islamic prayer. Some Islamic scholars regard Mohammed’s journey as a spiritual experience while others see it as a physical journey. Customs around Isra and Mi’raj vary between different Islamic communities. Some people spend the evening or night listening to or studying the story of Isra and Mi’raj in a mosque or at home. They may also decorate their homes or communities with candles or small electric lights and share food, particularly sweets, with each other or prepare a communal meal.


Thursday on the 40th day of Easter (or 39 days after Easter Sunday). In countries where it is a public holiday, Ascension Day is a free day for many workers. Many people take a long weekend off because the day falls on a Thursday. The Friday in between is usually quiet, particularly in shops and offices. Despite Christianity being a minority religion in Indonesia, Ascension Day is a public holiday and special services take place at churches throughout the country. Bali has numerous Christian and Catholic enclaves scattered across the island, such as Tuka Dalung near Denpasar and in Palasari and Blimbingsari in the western most part of the island. There are also hundreds of Chistian expatriate families staying in Nusa Dua, Sanur, Jimbaran, Seminyak and Kuta.

A new law banning the sale of alcohol in small shops has come into force in Indonesia

On Thursday 16th April, a ban on the sale of alcoholic beverages was implemented in minimarts across Indonesia. A few days before the new conditions came into place, two Islamic parties also put a bill to the Indonesian parliament calling for a blanket ban on all beverages with more than 1% alcohol. This follows the regulation, signed by Indonesia’s trade minister, Rachmat Gobel, on January 16, banning small retail chains from selling alcohol. This includes drinks such as beer and low-alcohol wine. Previously, such restrictions were applied mostly to alcoholic beverages with over five percent of alcohol. But Rachmat has said that a blanket nationwide ban is easier to enforce and remains convinced that it will not affect tourism. Interestingly, he referenced the case of Singapore, which is contemplating its own alcohol ban, as a way to justify what Indonesia is doing. “Singapore, a country that draws many tourists, can issue a ban, and we are still left behind, even though we are also concerned about the same problems linked to drinking”, The Straits Times quoted Rachmat as saying. Bali was expected to be excluded from the ban but as you can see, there are no longer any alcoholic drinks in the minimarts here in Bali. Alcohol can still be sold in supermarkets, hotels and food outlets, but local stores will no longer be allowed to stock it. Bali relies heavily on tourism and there are concerns the ban could severely damage the industry, including making it illegal for vendors to sell alcoholic drinks to tourists on beaches. Fortunately, this has not appeared to have happened – yet!

EDITORIAL We have a lot of food for thought in this month’s issue. On page 14, Jonathan Matthews reviews the “CP Lounge” in Ubud – the place to be if you want to dance the night away to live music after a splendid meal. On page 15, Virginia Entizne of “Cuca” restaurant in Jimbaran writes about “Cashew Nuts” and gives a recipe for “Homemade Roasted Cashew Nut Butter”.

Jonathan Matthews has been busy, on page 17 he reviews the “Bamboo Bar & Grill” in Kuta – the perfect place for holiday makers. On page 26, keeping with the food theme, we have an article dedicated to the memory of Keith Floyd who was a British celebrity cook, television personality and restaurateur. He was certainly, one of a kind! Our main focus this month is on the inaugural “Ubud Food Festival” which begins in early June. The event will bring together some of Indonesia’s culinary greats, international chefs that bring

There are also many new devices including features to keep you warm on those odd occasions that it becomes a little bit cold here in Bali but become very useful if you are driving to colder climates.

Elsewhere in the magazine, on page 8, Rodney Holt, founder of the Bali Sports Foundation (BSF) writes about the “Karangasem Eskrima Challenge” which brought together BSF deaf mute stickfighters and fighters from the “Combined Martial Arts Academy”. The event served as a dress rehearsal for the Bali International Stickfighting Challenge in September. On page 10, we introduce the remarkable concept of “Ecobricks”. A clever and environmentally sound idea that helps combat the epidemic of plastic waste.

Eskrima, Philippine Stickfighting is a sport derived from the traditional martial arts of the Philippines where in the past combatants fought, many times to the death, with fire hardened rattan cane. It is suggested that historically the art came originally from India eventually being introduced to the Philippines.

forms relative to modern military combat in several armies throughout the world. In modern sporting competitions two athletes wearing body protection compete in full contact fighting events using either single or double sticks made from rattan. The competitors wear heavily padded helmets with neck protection and metal face grills, heavily padded jackets, elbow and forearm protection, gloves, thigh and knee protection. Athletes may also compete in minimal body protection “Kulata” events. Divisions are further categorized by weight groupings. Eskrido, Knife sparring and form events are organized along similar lines.

The system developed through history as varying ethnic groups evolved the fighting style. The famous explorer Ferdinand Magellan met his fate on the shores of the Visayas islands near Cebu where he was killed by a local warrior skilled in the art of Arnis Eskrima. In later years Spanish influences also played a part in the evolution of this form of combat.

Sporting events were first organized in the late 1970’s. In March 1979 Grandmaster Cacoy Canete from the Cebu based Doce Pares School initiated and organized the first

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Plastic is literally at my fingertips from dawn to dusk. To check my emails I use a plastic keyboard, stare at a plastic framed monitor and use a plastic mouse. When I pop to the shops I come back with any number of plastic bags and bottles. Plastic is a monster, an epidemic. But where does all this plastic go? Quite a bit ends up in landfills and more than you can imagine ends up on the loose as plastic pollution, eventually making its way into our waterways. Giant garbage patches (one, more than twice the size of Bali!) can be found floating around in the oceans. And all this plastic pollution is not only a problem for the earth, it’s bad for our health. Disturbing Facts about Plastic Pollution • Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century. • 50% of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. • Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. • We currently recover only 5% of the plastics we produce. • Plastic accounts for around 10% of the total waste we generate. • The production of plastic uses around 8% of the world’s oil production. • Annually, approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute. • 46% of plastics float (EPA 2006) and it can drift for years before eventually concentrating in the ocean gyres.

• Plastic constitutes approximately 90% of all rubbish floating on the ocean’s surface, with 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile. • Over a million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans. •

44% of all seabird species, 22% of cetaceans, all sea turtle species and a growing list of fish species have been documented with plastic in or around their bodies.

Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form (with the exception of the small amount that has been incinerated).

Plastic chemicals can be absorbed by the body and some of the compounds found in plastic alter hormones or have other potential human health effects.

Some tips on how to “Rise Above Plastic” • Choose to reuse when it comes to shopping bags, cloth bags are available locally, almost everywhere and some of the large supermarkets offer them at the check-out.

Ecobricks are discarded plastic bottles, packed tight with other thrown away plastic items. They are then used in building construction. With just a little guidance and information, you can start making Ecobricks in less time than it has taken for you to read this article. Find out more, visit www.

• Reduce everyday plastics such as sandwich bags and juice cartons by replacing them with a reusable lunch bag/box that includes a thermos. •

Bring your to-go mug with you to the coffee shops or restaurants that let you use them, which is a great way to reduce lids, plastic cups and/or plastic-lined cups.

• Go digital! No need for plastic CD’s and DVD’s when you can buy online.


However, there are inventive ways that can help counter the harm being done to our health and the environment. One simple and effective way, and it is something EVERYONE can be involved in, is the remarkable concept of “Ecobricks”.

• Refuse single-serving packaging, excess packaging, straws and other “disposable” plastics. Carry reusable utensils in your purse, backpack or car to use at BBQ’s, take-out restaurants.

• It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is located in the North Pacific Gyre off the coast of California and is the largest ocean garbage site in the world. This floating mass of plastic is more than twice the size of Bali, with plastic pieces outnumbering sea life six to one.

Plastic is a powerful example of what the extraordinary minds of our leading experts in Science and Technology can come up with. Unfortunately, those same minds have not come up with any solutions to combat the growing epidemic of plastic waste.

• Seek out alternatives to the plastic items that you rely on. Spread the word. Talk to your family and friends about why it is important to reduce plastic in our lives and the nasty impacts of plastic pollution.

There really is only one place in Ubud where you can go to get your dance on until the wee hours of the morning – and that is at CP Lounge.

REVIEW by Jonathan Matthews

Discreetly situated on the very popular Monkey Forest Road, CP Lounge features a spacious open-air lounge, another spacious restaurant set next to a peaceful rice paddy and a late night dance club with pool tables, live bands and DJ’s. During the day, CP Lounge is the perfect place to chill out for lunch or tapas in the breezy pavilion overlooking the Ubud football field, surrounded with flowering fruit trees and cascading vines. CP Lounge offers an affordable and tempting menu of Indonesian and Western dishes, as well as free wifi and plenty of free parking. Once the sun goes down, CP Lounge becomes the happening place to be in Ubud, with live bands playing under the stars every day starting from 9 pm. There are large communal tables and sofas where you can chat with other travellers, expats and locals alike and enjoy a constant flow of tasty cocktails, beers, shishas and CP’s famous shooters. After the band stops playing, the party moves inside, where you can grab a seat along the sides of the dance floor and watch all the action unfold at the lengthy bar and on the dance floor, or play a friendly game of pool in the back. The best part is the bar doesn’t close until the last person leaves!

I have been to Ubud many times over the years but never made it to CP Lounge before now. I was with a group of four, in Ubud for the Bali Spirit Festival and as we were all staying overnight, the opportunity presented itself to finally check the place out. It is easy to find, the entrance is off Monkey Forest Road – park your bike or car along the lengthy gang that leads you straight into the musical heart of the venue. We arrived just before 9pm and the place was ‘emptyish’, maybe 20 other people there. The band were tuning their instruments and the only reason it looked empty was because the place is so vast. We wanted something to eat so we sat at one of the many big tables around the back, away from the band, and ordered some drinks – four randomly selected cocktails (cocktails range from 59k for a “Classic Mojito” to 89k for a “Strawberry Sensation”, very reasonable). I also asked for the famous “Rainbow shots” – buy 1 get 12, for only 150k – it would have been silly not to... I asked our waitress about this amazing offer and was told “there’s not really a history behind the Rainbow shots, there is a mystery behind it though, but we can’t reveal this...”, which had me intrigued! The food menu is rather impressive, not only is it very well designed, making it easy to read, it offers so many different and tempting choices, and just like the cocktails, the prices seemed to be on the cheap side. Between us, we ordered: “Ayam Pandan”, “Samosa Chat”, “Calamari Fritas”, and “Tuna Tartar” as starters (combined cost – 122k!). For the main courses, we chose: “Thai Beef Salad”, “Pacific ‘3.O”, “Rib Eye Steak” and “Spare Ribs” (total cost – 262k!) What we were served defied the prices charged. What fantastic value. Each dish was creatively presented, the portion size generous and the quality and taste – top draw! I would normally expect to pay double for something similar in Seminyak and Legian. More cocktails and another go at the “Rainbow shots”, and the time just flew by. It was now

approaching 11pm and the place had transformed – it was heaving, the band seemed to be playing louder and the atmosphere was pure party. From emptyish to packed-out in the time it had taken to fill our faces. We weren’t done yet though. I have heard it said that when one is full, a picture or description of something mouth wateringly tempting, such as a “Chocolate Brownie, served with strawberry and chocolate sauce” or “Caramelized Rum & Banana Puffs - warm crispy pastry filled with banana, rum & caramel, served with vanilla ice cream” can cause the body to produce a flux of acid that miraculously makes room for more food. This seemed to be the case, or half the case or maybe it was the “Rainbow shots”. Anyway, we ordered the two desserts and shared them between us. My recollection of what happened next is somewhat hazy. Did we have yet another round of “Rainbow shots?” How many more cocktails? I do know that I was drinking beer and had become involved in a great doubles pool match, partnering with some guy whose name I just can’t recall but felt I had known all my life. Others in my group were dancing to the band and when I was eventually dragged (yep, dragged) away from the pool table by my girlfriend, the time had raced on well past 1am. At some stage, we had all unwittingly abandoned the table where we were sitting, leaving bags phones etc. unattended but everything was still there when we picked up the bill, paid and headed back to our hotel – by taxi, I should add. And that fact helps me sum up my experience. The vibe was ever so friendly and safe. Our waitress had been keeping an eye on our belongings but there was no sense of danger. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. CP Lounge is the place everyone in party mood in Ubud gravitates towards and if I lived a little closer to Ubud, no doubt I would be there often.

INDONESIAN INGREDIENTS: CASHEW NUTS By Virgina Entizne of Cuca Restaurant

Believe it or not, cashews come from an apple. Yes, cashew trees (tropical and evergreen, originally from Brazil) bear numerous edible pear shaped “false fruits” called “accessory fruits” with a high concentration of tannins which are the same substances found in tea and wine. The nuts are in contrast “truefruits” and are firmly attached to the bottom end of the apples, appearing like the clapper in a bell, and have a hard outer shell enclosing a single edible kernel known as cashew nut. You will have probably noticed that cashews in their shell are not available in stores. This is because these nuts are always sold preshelled and without their interior caustic resin, known as cashew balm, which is a skin irritant toxin so potent that it is actually used to make varnishes and insecticides. Cashew nuts have a kidney shape and a smooth curvy pointed tip.

Each nut splits into two equal halves as in legumes and features a creamy colour with a firm yet delicate texture and smooth surface. They are very popular not only for their succulent sweet flavour but for their health benefits as well since they pack a mix of nutrients and minerals not found in many common foods: 5 grams of protein per ounce and high levels of the essential minerals iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper and manganese. Cashew nuts are also rich in good fats, have zero cholesterol and are considered “low-fat” compared to any other popular nut, including almonds, walnuts, peanuts and pecans. In Indonesia, the roasted and salted cashew nuts are called kacang mete and are a popular snack. In Western countries they can also be sugared or even covered in chocolate and often used as a flavourful complement to appetizers, main dishes and desserts.

TRY THIS RECIPE! Homemade Roasted Cashew Nut Butter 1. Roast the cashew nuts in an oven at 350F for 10 minutes or until golden brown. 2.

Transfer the warm cashews to a food processor or blender with all remaining ingredients and blend for 3 minutes stopping every minute to scrape down the sides.


Transfer the cashew butter to a storage container and keep in the fridge.

You can spread it on toasted bread or use it as you would peanut butter.

Bamboo Bar and Grill is situated next to the popular Waterbom Park in Kuta and is Australian owned and operated. The staff are handpicked for their friendly and efficient service. All our customers can expect to be greeted with charm and a friendly warm smile. We understand modern dining expectations and deliver them with confidence! There are 7 huge flat screen TV’s, showing live sport including: AFL, NRL, Supercars, NRL, UFC, MMA, Cricket and Racing. The menu, together with amazing cocktails and great live music (starting at 8pm everyday) makes for a memorable holiday dining experience that will have you coming back for more!


by Jonathan Matthews

The first thing that hits you as you enter the “Bamboo Bar and Grill” restaurant is the sheer scale of the place – and all constructed from bamboo, one of nature’s finest and greenest materials – it is a huge and impressive structure. The circular bar in the centre is bright and enticing, with what must be the largest ceiling fan I have ever seen, spinning directly above it. Now does it live up to its reputation? I took along a well seasoned Australian friend of mine to discover if the hype is true (you can’t kid Aussies when it comes to food, drink, sports and entertainment!)

system between the bands intervals and everywhere you looked, people were enjoying themselves. We found ourselves joining in with the holiday atmosphere and before we knew it, it had gone past midnight and unfortunately, we had to head home (not actually being on holiday ourselves). The hype is true and it does – “make for a memorable holiday dining experience that will have you coming back for more!”

We were warmly greeted upon arrival and shown to a table. We were sat towards the back with a clear view of the stage. It was just past 8.30pm and the band were already in full swing, playing popular, upbeat sing-along classics. I immediately felt like I was on holiday. Our waitress for the evening was Wulan, a pleasant and friendly Balinese lady who promptly brought us the drinks menu, which had everything you could want – all kinds of cocktails, imported wines, shooters and sprits. We started with Mai Tai cocktails and worked our way through many more throughout the evening! The food menu caters for all tastes and it was a challenge making our minds up – which is a good thing. To start, my friend chose the “Ceaser Salad”, I went for the “Grilled Garlic King Prawns” and we were both delighted with our choices. For the main course, I opted for the “Lamb Shank”, which literally fell off the bone and was absolutely delicious. My friend decided on the “Penne Pesto Pasta” and asked to have the chicken replaced with asparagus, a personal favourite of hers – and Wulun said “no problem”. We had fallen upon a bar/restaurant that evidently runs a highly organised kitchen to cope with the volume of guests, and well trained staff that can make decisions on the spot. Our food was served timely, professionally and with a smile and a giggle. If you want to sing, you will be invited to join the band. Those with the confidence were soon singing classics like the Bee Gees ‘Words’ and everyone in the place was joining in, singing and waving their arms in the air. Rock ‘n’ Roll medleys played on the sound

ANNOUNCING THE INAUGURAL UBUD FOOD FESTIVAL: A THREE-DAY CULINARY ADVENTURE WITH INDONESIAN FOOD AS THE STAR. Ubud, INDONESIA The extraordinary culinary diversity of the world’s largest archipelagic nation will be showcased in a brand new concept descending on Bali’s cultural capital: the much-anticipated Ubud Food Festival (UFF). A sibling Festival of the world renowned Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (UWRF), the UFF will kick off a three-day culinary adventure from 5th-7th June, serving up a program rich in food mythology, authenticity and of course, taste. Bringing together some of Indonesia’s culinary greats, international chefs bringing their unique style of food-fusion to the archipelago and industry heavyweights in Southeast Asia and beyond, the UFF is set to delight and inspire both participants and audiences alike. The program will feature a range of ticketed and free events, spanning cooking demonstrations, workshops, food forums, markets, food tours, wine tastings, film screenings and much, much more. Heading the line-up are the stars of Indonesian culinary landscape including global icon Sri Owen (sponsored in partnership with Garuda UK), TV personalities Bara Pattiradjawane and Bondan Winarno, cult hero Rahung Nasution, and culinary expert William Wongso. From the bursting Bali food scene comes Room4Dessert’s Will Goldfarb, Mozaic’s Chris Salans and Locavore’s Eelke Plasmeijer, El Bulli-trained chef Kevin Cherkas of Cuca, as well as some of island’s finest culinary establishments including Hujan Locale, Bridges and Fivelements. The UFF will also bring together industry heavyweights working in Southeast Asia and the globe. With their restaurants recently named in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Australian BBQ fanatic Dave Pynt and former head-chef of Melbourne’s Vue de Monde Ryan Clift (supported by bridges) will be bringing their expertise to the table, along with one of the world’s most celebrated pastry chefs, Janice Wong (supported by Pipiltin Chocolate) and Malaysia’s acclaimed Chef Wan. Founder and Director of the UFF, Janet DeNeefe, said she is delighted to finally be bringing the long-awaited Festival to Indonesia, which she hopes will shine a spotlight on the incredible diversity and richness of cuisine and culture the country has to offer. “We’ve been wanting to launch a food festival for even longer than we’ve been running the UWRF, which celebrates its 12th birthday this year. I can’t wait to see the amazing talent of the culinary community come to life and take form”. DeNeefe says it’s not just about tasting different cuisines, however, but understanding food in all its forms, and the journey from the supplier to the plate. “As well as just showcasing great food, the UFF is about taking a journey, to understand its past, present and future. We also want to strengthen linkages within the local and international culinary community, cementing Indonesia as one of the best food destinations in the world”. The full program is now available via the UFF website, where tickets for the event are on sale. Due to the limited availability of ticketed sessions, the UFF is encouraging people to purchase early to avoid disappointment. BALI MARKETPLACE

Private Pool Area

I recently stayed in one of the family villas with my wife, a friend and his teenage daughter. I took the upstairs bedroom which was unforgivingly more romantic and much cheaper than the hotel I chose for my honeymoon (in Bali). If only I knew then what I know now... “The Wapa Di Ume Family Villa’s are individual, secluded, fully furnished, two story-buildings - with their own private swimming pool and balcony overlooking picturesque rice fields”.

Upstairs Bedroom


On the ground floor, there is a commodious living area which opens up to the private swimming pool area, a separate bedroom with twin beds and an en-suite bathroom – perfect for children (or in my case, my friend and his daughter).

WAPA DI UME FAMILY VILLA The master bedroom on the second floor is majestic. As you reach the top of the stairs you enter into a fairytale come true. There is a grand four-poster king-size bed with draped netting, an en-suite bathroom with a wonderful kidney-shaped bath, and cushions and seating everywhere. The glass door windows open up to a glorious balcony which indeed, overlooks the scenic rice fields. The decor is “traditional Bali meets 5 star hotel” and oozes class and character. It is fresh, spacious and dreamy. Without doubt, considering the price, this is one of the finest rooms I have ever had the good fortune to sleep in. This villa is comfortable for up to 6 people, extra beds are available upon request.

CHANGE YOUR STORY, CHANGE YOUR LIFE by Rick Pursell Since time immemorial, stories have shaped our personal lives, our cultures, communities, nations and the entire human experience. Stories lie at the heart of all religions, traditions, writings, movies and spoken words. Each personal story is entirely different from another’s, even if identical twins experience a very similar upbringing and life, their perspective is never exactly the same, so their story, as does ours, differs. Ponder this for a moment. If we only had one story each, which we don’t, we each have way more than that, then over seven billion stories exist at any one time on Planet Earth. That is a lot of stories and in fact, it would be nigh on impossible to estimate how many stories exist from our past, present and about the future. So let us focus for a moment on our own personal story. It has been established that from conception onwards, we are recording everything that is transpiring around us. We may not recall much of what was going on in the womb or as a baby, but we were recording it just the same. Some say that our recording goes well beyond our five senses and the sixth sense of intuition, but suffice to say, all that is experienced is stored in our biofield, at a cellular level, in the mind or emotions. The human biofield is an energetic matrix that surrounds the human body. Our personal stories are shaped by our experiences, the environment in which were raised, our perceptions, perspectives, what we have been told and what we believe. Allow me to give you an example. Little Johnny’s Dad has worked hard all his life, struggling to make ends meet, pay bills and balance his work and family life. While sitting on his

Work Smarter, not harder! work smarter, not necessarily harder to achieve the things we need to bring about a fulfilling and richly rewarding life.

Dad’s knee one day, his Dad tells him “If you want to make it in this life son, you have to work very hard”. Johnny admires his Dad and they get on well, so whatever comes out of Dad’s mouth resembles the truth for little Johnny, as he is not experienced enough in life to determine what is true for him. Johnny grows up, enters the workforce and raises a family, but somehow he seems obsessive about becoming a success, wealthy and accepted by society as having “Made it”. He dedicates an inordinate amount of time at work, foregoing his family needs and before long, starts to suffer ill health and marital problems. His addiction to work and the belief that he must work very hard to make it in life has caught up with him and out of desperation, he seeks some rest, peace, quiet and personal counselling. In the counselling session, he uncovers the idea and belief imposed by his Dad that - “If you want to make it in this life son, you have to work very hard” as the driving influence in his life. This belief was not his, but his father’s. It did not take into account that we can

The moment he sees that this was not his personal belief but that of someone else (in this case, his father) and that there was a different story or belief that he could adopt, all the stress and inner conflict dropped away and he nursed himself back to good health. The old belief was replaced with a new one - that one can achieve much more by working smarter, more intelligently and from a more heart-centred place. His relationships improved, he adopted a balanced attitude to work, family and play and had more time on his hands to create smarter ways of conducting his business. By his own measure, not society’s, he became a success in his own right, impassioned by what he was doing, being of service to others and dwelling in the heart-felt happiness that resides within us all. What we are alluding to here is for each of us to determine what beliefs we are carrying around from the past that 1) Serve us and 2) Do not serve us and it should come as no surprise that once we replace the beliefs that no longer serve us with another more viable story, our lives will become magically transformed.

Since 1969, Rick’s path led him to many fine teachers, culminating in a major awakening to the nature of life. Since then, he has shared his gift with many others through his Heart Mastery Series and Experiencing Your Authentic Self Retreats His cultural change initiative – Cause No Harm, came as a conclusion of 23 years in the corporate world and became the subject of his book and TEDX Ubud talk in 2011 Now living his dream in Bali, Rick owns “Namaste – The Spiritual Shop” and Namaste Retreat Centre in the mountains.

Your self confidence will also yield positive secondary effects, as you will be noticed in your profession and could be offered new responsibilities in your job.

Capricorn You always put your heart and soul in to your various projects but things do not always go according to plan. You are not going to like this but you will have to review your goals and be less ambitious in the months ahead. Just try to be patient, the summer months will bring you a lot of pleasant surprises.

MAY 2015 Issue #22

1 - 31 MAY 2015 Taurus Enjoy this month, your personal energies will be stronger than ever, as well as your intuition. Define your goals for the coming year, one of them being probably to give more attention to your partner and to your family life, as you have a habit of ignoring those close to you. Your efforts will be appreciated.

Leo You are still protected by benevolent planets. You are more dazzling than ever but be careful of hurting others feelings with your lack of modesty and the pleasure you display over your successes. Your loved ones know that they can rely on you in all circumstances and that you are always generous and protective.

Scorpio Communication is the foundation of any relationship. If you feel that something is going wrong, try and urge your partner to share his/hers worries or queries with you. Your sense of analysis could greatly help. At work, continue with your efforts, it will be rewarding, not just for your finances but your ego too.

Aquarius You are behaving in an adaptable and sociable manner, you do not miss any opportunity to work hand in hand with your colleagues. This will be highly appreciated and the rewards should come thick and fast. You are in Olympic shape and your family and friends will love this new you, and your renewed lust for life.


Gemini Back to your usual way of enjoying life, that is without considering too seriously the everyday problems. Of course, you deserve some lightness, but do not rest on your own laurels, you still have a long way to go. Your affections and your income are protected for the whole month and the coming summer months.

Virgo What happened to the wise Virgo? Madness is in the air and you are spending your money frivolously! Your savings are melting disappearing before your eyes! Investment, you say but your banker will hardly consider your spending spree as an investment… No worries, you will be back to normal before you go bankrupt!

Sagittarius A new sense of responsibility, the desire to organize your future on a new basis with a strong structure. What you are building is intended to last and will lead you to some sort of unexpected freedom. Instead of dispersing your energies in disorganized directions, you will concentrate on one precise target, for the best.

Pisces Ready to fall in love? Dreaming once more of a Charming Prince / Princess who does not exist ? Just open your eyes and look around you, you could realize he (she) is not that far away. Do not forget that dreaming leads nowhere and that you can still make progress in your career. This should be your priority.


TAURUS AND LOVE: Governed by the planet Venus, this sign loves life and is extremely concerned by all the aspects of love. In their youth, curiosity makes them flirtatious, a lot, but one day they will decide to build a family and this will be the great love of their life. Wife – or husband – and children are sacred. Easy to live with, they expect a real and stable happiness, with a nice and warm home, good meals ready in time, to be often shared with friends. Loyal, they will not forgive if they are betrayed. Passion is not really what they expect from love but their sexual life is intense and oriented towards mutual satisfaction. A good and easy partner, if you share the same values in life!

Second episode

Sherlock depicts "consulting detective" Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) solving various mysteries in London. Holmes is assisted by his flatmate and friend, Dr. John Watson (Martin Freeman), who has returned from military service in Afghanistan with the Royal Army Medical Corps. Although Metropolitan Police Service Detective Inspector Greg Lestrade (Rupert Graves) and others are at first skeptical of Holmes, over time his remarkable intellect and powers of observation persuade them of his value. In part through Watson's blog documenting their adventures Holmes becomes a reluctant celebrity, with the press reporting on his cases and eccentric personal life, and both ordinary people and the British government ask for his help.

NICOLAS DUVAUCHELLE is a young actor who has appeared in many noteable films over the past 10 years. We propose 4 moving and poetic films.


This issue of the Magazine is all about food so why not celebrate one the best (TV) chefs ever? Keith Floyd (28 December 1943 – 14 September 2009) was a British celebrity cook, television personality and restaurateur, who hosted cooking shows for the BBC and published many books combining cookery and travel. On television, his eccentric style of presentation endeared him to millions of viewers worldwide. In 2002 Floyd, a smoker and heavy drinker, was reported to have suffered a mild stroke, although he denied this in his autobiography. In November 2004 he was banned from driving for 32 months and fined £1,500 after

crashing his car into another vehicle while three-and-a-half times over the legal alcohol limit. You can watch his shows on YouTube, go on, you won’t be disappointed. He was the best, a true legend, often drunk and forgetful – he simply made some of the most memorable cooking programmes ever, unsurpassed by the tidal wave of the new TV chefs that you see nowadays. I picked out an obituary from his official website, that I think sums him up rather well. I hope you enjoy!

Memories of

Keith Floyd by Mike Bevans, Linthwaite House Hotel, Windermere The Lake District.

I First met Floyd in November 2006. I got a call from the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal, whom we have worked with in the past. Could I do a room on a Sunday night for Keith Floyd who was doing his stand up autobiographical show. Why not? They gave me some tickets and some friends and I went to see him. It was shocking to say the least. There were kids in the audience - a very diverse audience to be sure - and his language left a lot to be desired especially his opening lines designed to shock gambit. I can’t repeat it here. Oh go on then, I will. “I’m f****** p*****, and if you don’t like it you can f*** off now”. When he realised there were kids in the audience he was mortified and invited the boy down to the stage for a chat – something he’ll never forget. Later on a heckler on the front row (completely inebriated by the sound of it; though at first we just wondered whether this person was actually unable to help it, but in any case Floyd was having none of it) was asked by Floyd to restrain herself. She didn’t. He tore a strip off her and she was asked to leave and escorted out of the theatre. She was to be found at the interval lying on the floor of the bar, drunk. Her husband, who was a dedicated follower of Floyd, attended the second half, and had brought a gift for him - a Panama hat - which Floyd, ever the gent, wore with aplomb. The way he behaved on stage really summed up how he lived. What you see is what you get. No airs and graces. He’d swear if he wanted; no-one could tell him not to, but he had standards of decency and could behave like a gentleman. He believed in fairness, hated political


correctness and the nanny state, and of course he enjoyed a drink, which he could generally manage. (Whiskey was preferred to red wine.)

As a result of the gig in Kendal, I got talking to the great man over coffee the following day, and we immediately struck up a rapport. He regaled stories of his life, and commented on the industry, the country, rugby union and its players, his sartorial approach (faded elegance; he had either 70 or 700 pairs of shoes) and we had hours of fun. A few days later he phoned me to say he wanted to do something in the Lakes.

patience. But start a conversation up with a subject he loved and he’d be off. Of course the guests loved him but we could all see that it was slowly unravelling for Floyd. So it was with huge sadness that I learned on a plane flying back from holiday last week, the death of my brief friend Floyd. I value and treasure the time we worked together and England is now missing a fine fellow. I read in one of the obituaries that he had an edginess, maybe similar to Oliver Reid or Richard Burton.

I think that’s true. He had a dash of good old fashioned swash buckling Englishness about him, a raffish character who would have probably suited being born in the Victorian era.

There has been a lot of waffle about how he compares to the chefs of today. He doesn’t. He was from a different era and hated the modern food approach. He was more robust and simple in his cooking, just like on TV. We miss him.

We shared some mind boggling moments. On the first day he asked me:

”Have you got any of my books?” “No”, I replied. “Well I can’t remember any of my f****** recipes”. I had to go to Kendal to buy his books so he could do the recipes. He told me he never kept any of his books; had never read them. He and I would sit down with guests at dinner and on one night, he just pecked at his food though he needed to eat more. He couldn’t really stand being worshipped and was short on
