There are voices in my head. Not loud voices. Not the pull your hair out, walk around in ever increasing circles, dribbling and mumbling, looking over your shoulder voices. These are quiet, subtle, consistent and soft like the sound of running water over forest moss voices. Actually it’s not a whole bunch of voices at all … it’s more like just the one voice. The kind of voice you don’t hear until you listen to it. Signs of a miss-spent youth? Of months astrally

For those that haven’t noticed, the world doesn’t really ‘work’ at all and that’s because the Ego rules baby, while the real you sits back having trouble with the concept and perception that this is all there is! Maybe we just need a change of perception.

It all sounds a bit theoretical and maybe just a little idealistically pompous in a head up the arse kind of way, but it’s really not. It’s actually quite simple. By recognizing the voice for what it is, the Ego, and acknowledging it as a part of who we are, something very interesting begins to happen. It becomes just that, just a ‘part’ of who we are, not the all-defining sum of all our parts, just a part. If we don’t let Ego take control we find ourselves in a peaceful place. A place where yes, we do have emotional outbursts but if we don’t let

‘Love is defined as being sensual and sexual; this however is selfish’ From a philosophical angle, the whole point of our existence is to be happy and that means to love and to be loved.

Green City a healthy future is almost here

Dr. Al Jaber;

‘We are creating a city where residents and commuters will live the highest quality of life with the lowest environmental footprint’ Rendering of the future Masdar City, designed by the British architectural firm Foster and Partners


The Mag

Gobal warming is a term used frequently nowadays. And it’s no longer a term only used by ‘tree huggers’ anymore; I think we’re all starting to get a bit greener. What with all the films and commercials coming out these days and the Global Warming Conference just behind us, I think we are all beginning to realize that the ongoing changes of our sacred planet is a fact. Bali knows how to handle the growing demand for ‘Eco Tourism’ by implementing special programs for nature lovers (there’s a little nature lover in all of us, isn’t there?) like educational hiking trips and by promoting resorts, hotels and villas as being eco friendly. With all these developments we’re heading in the right direction but we aren’t there... yet. In a different part of the globe, there are some interesting developments going on and these are worth learning from to get the inspiration needed to change to a you’re-not-so-hip-because-you’rewalking-around-with-a-plastic-bag mindset. One of the most interesting developments today is the ‘Green City’ named Masdar, which is being built in Abu Dhabi and will be the first of it’s kind. The initiative to create a city, which is designed to have no carbon emissions, cars or waste, was announced back in April 2006 by the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and the work for the first phase started February 2008. Masdar city will cover 6 km²(1,483 acres) and will be able to hold a population of 50,000 people and 1,500 businesses. The full project should be finished by 2013 and cost around $22 billion.

“The calculations are promising; the city will use 75 percent less power then a similar sized city” Masdar’s plans are quite ambitious. The calculations are promising; the total city will use 75 percent less power then a similar sized city and the water needs will be around 60% lower. In the extreme hot desert of Abu Dhabi, the Green City will be enjoying more pleasant temperatures because of the natural airconditioning provided by massive wind-towers. As the city is car free, they’ve come up with great solutions for transportation. With a maximum distance of 200 meter to the nearest transport link (monorail-like trains), Masdar is going to be pedestrian friendly environment and the traffic jams are out of the question. >> The Mag


There’s no reason for not living in this Green City because all amenities are covered; recreational areas, university, plenty of jobs (in a tax-free environment), transparent laws and located nearby the International Airport of Abu Dhabi. Sounds almost too good to be true… Chief Executive of Masdar, Sultan Al Jaber, said “We are often asked why we are setting our goal so high. Our answer is because someone must... Someone must push the envelope to create the solution that we, as a global community, so urgently require.” In accordance to Masdar Initiative, one day, all cities will be built like this.

“Masdar’s University will already open its doors next year” The great knowledge of Masdar’s developers is luckily going to be shared. The university of the Green City is one of the first phases of the project


The Mag

and is already going to be operating by 2009. The students will be encouraged to engage with the further developments and there will be special degrees on sustainability. Though it seems like a development that is not going to be implemented elsewhere anytime soon, it sure is inspiring to know that developments like this are underway. I believe that a great level of awareness and responsibility will be created amongst the students and tenants by involving them in the process of this project. This is the first step that is going to be fundamental in creating similar future endeavors around the world, to educate people, raise awareness and make people realize that we all need to start taking more responsibility for our actions.

The Layar - Seminyak The Layar is a dream come true. An estate of 22 villas, each with its own garden, pool, and Jacuzzi, designed by renowned GM architects, and located in the heart of the most sought after area in Bali. Elements of two different worlds are combined in harmony through the design of each villa; the richness of tropical materials and colours with the essentials of contemporary design; indoor-outdoor living with the comfort of independent suites; the dream of a home in the tropics with the knowledge of a sound financial investment; the advantages of a fully managed property with the customization and the views of a unique villa, we call it THE NEW INTERNATIONAL TROPICALISM. The Layar is located in the heart of Bali ‘s most important residential area of Seminyak. Maximum privacy, tranquility and security just 20 minutes from the airport and a stone’s throw from the shores of the Indian Ocean. Within walking distance are exclusive boutiques and spas and renowned restaurants and bars. A short drive will take you inland, to explore rice paddies, volcanoes and traditional villages but also to enjoy world class golf courses; or to the South coast, with its white sandy beaches dominated by majestic cliffs, and some of the best surfers’ waves in the world. starting from 480.000 USD

Panorama - Bukit Outrigger Panorama Bali Resort and Spa is located on the southern coastline of Bali, in an area called the Bukit (“hill”). It is set amongst almost four hectares (10 acres) of dramatically landscaped tropical rain forest, with astounding views of the the Indian Ocean and featuring a unique Beach and Water Park. Traveling time from the airport is 20 minutes. The Nusa Dua resort area, Bali Collection shopping arcade and championship 18-hole golf course are just 15 minutes away. Some of the world’s finest surfing is on the doorstep of the resort. The site is breath taking. Steeply sloping hillside forms a natural bowl. Accommodation high on the slopes will enjoy stunning ocean views. Whilst beneath the rain forest canopy lies the fabulous waterscape, spa, dining and resort amenities. The rapid rise of the resort condominium development model represents a major growth area in investment property markets around the world. Suitably packaged, consumers have shown a willingness to take an ownership position within a resort environment, for number of clearly defined reasons: service: management by a leading hotel operator returns: higher yield and superior capital values, through sophisticated global marketing and easier re-sales maintenance: total property management, plus programmed maintenance and renovation amenities: resort-standard facilities (f&b, sports, leisure) vacation exchange: the ability to trade ownership usage-rights throughout the world ownership: safe and tax-efficient structures prestige: enhanced ‘talk value’ confidence: an overall package of impressive credentials to re-enforce the purchase decision. Individual owners of apartments at Panorama Bali Resort & Spa will ordinarily enjoy the following benefits like: 28 days free occupation per year and a 45% share of room revenue available for distribution.

The Views - Bukit The Views is a private community comprising of 18 exquisitely designed homes, a spa facility, fitness centre and a restaurant spread across 15,000 square meters of land that gently slopes away from the apex of the island’s southern peninsula. For those seeking a truly special residential experience on an island famous for its eternal beauty, The Views is now being offered for sale. Bali’s southern most headland, known as the Bukit Peninsula, majestically rises from the Indian Ocean and commands uninterrupted views of neighbouring islands Nusa Penida and Java, as well as Bali’s magnificent mountain range with all of her volcanoes. The Views is centrally located on an elevated prominence of the peninsula allowing guests to also enjoy Bali’s splendid sunrises and its brilliant sunsets. The Views offers absolute privacy and seclusion whilst located just minutes from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport and a host of the island’s most popular entertainment and leisure activities. The world-renowned Four Seasons Resort Bali and the golden sands of Jimbaran Bay are just a few kilometers to the east, while scenic Nusa Dua beach and one of Asia’s finest golf courses, The Bali Golf and Country Club are just minutes to the west. Investors in The Views will own their own property on a freehold basis. Unlike most other investment properties in Bali, each individual resident will own their villa outright – not on a lease period – which means your villa is yours to enjoy for as many years as you like. Our management company will provide maintenance services to ensure your villa is always in pristine condition and rental service should you choose to rent your villa while you’re away. The administrative structure will be much the same as any leading hotel, so while you’re away you can enjoy an annual return on investment of 6 – 9%. Additionally, these types of developments in Bali have enjoyed annual capital appreciation of 20%. This arrangement allows owners to enjoy a great holiday home whilst in Bali and a lucrative business investment while abroad.

Pasraman Bhagawan - Jimbaran As written in almost every development presentation, The Pasraman Bhagawan is one of the most (if not the most) prestigious real estate developments in Bali at the moment. Two of the many differences between those properties and The Pasraman Bhagawan development are an on-site Helipad and a Bentley for airport pickups to cater to those wanting nothing less then the best Bali has to offer. Owning your property in the Pasraman Bhagawan development is a unique opportunity, as there is nothing available for the same price, that has a similar size, quality, location and features as the Pasraman Bhagawan. A property in the Pasraman Bhagawan estate is available for the Balinese equivalent of freehold ownership for foreigners perched high above Jimbaran Bay –right above the Four Season and Intercontinental Hotel- and offers all the luxuries you can possibly imagine. The villas of Pasraman Bhagawan are fully furnished with quality furniture and fittings. You decide if you live in - rent out - or both. Spend as much time you wish being a resident at Pasraman Bhagawan and have it fully managed when you’re not. Some of the truly unique features at Pasraman Bhagawan include a Country Club, Spa, Restaurant, Tennis Court, Helipad and VIP airport visa processing without queuing. When not using the ultimate Helicopter transport, a Bentley stands by for airport pickup optionally with a BMW 5 Series for your entourage. Your Pasraman Bhagawan property comes with a membership to the Intercontinental Hotel which is just down near the bottom of the driveway and most importantly: fully dedicated management and piece-of-mind.

What’s Cooking? TJ’s California-Mexican Bar & Restaurant When you’re a tourist in Bali you definitely want to try some of the local specialties. But trust me, after staying in Bali for more than a week, you will probably have had your fill of all the Nasi Campurs, Soto Ayams and Babi Gulings and want to try something else, however, most likely, you will still be somewhat resistant to eat the food you eat back home. While shopping for souvenirs from Bali, head over to Poppies Lane One and Two and while you’re at it, satisfy your appetite at TJ’s. Though both Poppies One and Two are quite hectic little streets with all the souvenir-sellers trying to shrink the weight of your wallet, motorbikes zigzagging past each other and cars trying to squeeze through the small alleyways, TJ’s is more laid back and has a whole different atmosphere, a calm space to relax amongst the calamity. This medium sized restaurant has a colorful Mexican/Asian interior and you can choose to lounge on the sofas or sit at a dining table near the pond side where lush greenery is growing freely. Once seated, order a cocktail. These are not to be missed! The Margaritas are delicious, but personally I really like the drink called ‘Coco Nuts’. It reminded me a bit of a Pina Colada, but more coconutty. The cocktails go really well with the crispy Nachos that are well covered on the menu in many variations and with all kinds of dips. For main course you have plenty of choices. The kind owner Nigel recommended some dishes for us and we decided to go for Beef Fajitas, a Beef Burger and a Mexican Nasi Campur (which is a great dish when you cannot decide what to eat). After ordering we had a nice chat with Nigel about his restaurant (which has already been around for more then 24 years!) and about life in Bali. But the food arrived, so we postponed the chat a bit and dug in. The Beef Fajitas is a great dish because you get to experience the ritual of wrapping it yourself and choosing your fillings. The beef is presented on a hot sizzling plate, the wraps within a cloth napkin to keep them warm and last but not least; 5 different sauces to accompany your meal. What a feast, I always tend to eat too fast when I have this many choices. While chewing I was already wondering what the next bite would taste like. My colleagues were also very satisfied with their choices. The Mexican Nasi Campur is a colorful dish with many small ‘samples’ of other main courses. The Beef Burger was tasty as well, with a good sized piece of quality meat, crispy fries, fair amount of salad and even some Chili Beans to make it Mexican. After the delicious meal we sat down at the bar with Nigel to continue our chat. And what is better than getting some real Tequila shots after a good Mexican meal? Well, make sure you take it easy and don’t do more then one or two, because that Tequila is kicking! As you might have guessed I slept really peacefully that night. But it for sure was a great evening at TJ’s and worth visiting again.

What’s Cooking? Mannekepis - Belgian Specialities “What a great atmosphere” was my first impression. The setting was quite familiar to me; Like Holland, Belgium (the neighbor country) knows how to make a great bar/bistro, where you can get a nice bite or a refreshing beer. This kind of atmosphere I had not found in Bali yet, and it felt like home immediately. The menu is quite diverse. There are some Belgian specialties, but also a lot of international dishes like Carpaccio, Salads, Mexican dishes, Pastas, Wraps and many more. So you don’t have to be Belgian or Dutch to enjoy this restaurant. Wherever you’re from, you can decide to go for a more familiar dish while enjoying a real Belgian atmosphere. It was hard to make a decision because it all sounded so tasty. After a few minutes we ordered two types of steak; one Panfried Tenderloin and one Steak Bearnaise, and two traditional Belgian dishes; “Gentse Waterzooi” and “Hamrollekes”. Quite quickly the food arrived. All the dishes looked amazing; it was like eating in a fancy restaurant. But the prices are more like the affordable ones. Now who doesn’t like that concept? And even the taste of the food was high quality. We thought the steaks were from imported beef, so we could not understand the prices. After talking to the owner we found out it was local beef, but from the highest quality they could get. The steaks were accompanied with some great sauces that had a good flavor, but not too strong. The Hamrollekes (rolls of ham) tasted quite special and also familiar; in a big bowl the rolls of ham and leek were laying in a tasty Mornay sauce and it was gratinated with cheese. The Hamrollekes were served with creamy mashed potatoes. Now my choice was the “Gentse Waterzooi”. I had no idea what it was but the name was so funny (water mess from Gent) so I decided to just go for it. Basically, the Gentse Waterzooi is a very rich soup. The slightly thick broth was full of healthy veggies, potatoes and chicken. It was definitely enough for a main course. So all the dishes were really satisfying, but this time I really had the craving for something sweet. My friend agreed. The other two skipped the desserts. Ha, they shouldn’t have! Out of the six choices on the menu, we decided to go for the good ol’ Dame Blanche and the fancy Sabayon. Well, what’s there to say about a Dame Blanche? It was just like it should be; good-quality vanilla ice cream with hot chocolate sauce and whipped cream. The sabayon was new for me but it was a good decision. This dessert was made out of whipped eggs, white wine and strawberries, accompanied with vanilla ice cream. Ánd perfumed with amaretto. Yes, it tasted just the way it sounds!

Bali Waterworld


Because Bali is more then an island Discover Scuba Diving Do you have that spare day to discover the beauty of the warm tropical coral reefs that


surround the Island of Bali? Well that’s all it takes to give you that first, unforgettable experience of scuba diving. Utilize that spare day and give scuba diving a try to see if it’s really for you. But be aware that it can be most addictive! So, how do you start? Well, start by contacting one of the scuba diving companies and arrange a date for the one-day ‘PADI Discover Scuba Diving’ package. Make sure that you go for a qualified company that has all the licenses. This specific package is the world’s most popular introduction to scuba diving and averagely it only takes around an hour or two. For your first dive with a PADI Dive Centre, there should be a PADI instructor assigned for every two people, to ensure your comfort and safety. The program lets you experience the thrill of diving in the safety of a pool. Some companies even add the experience of an open water adventure after you master the basics. After the introduction you’ll probably know immediately if scuba diving is your thing and you will be heading home with a great new story to tell. If you want to continue your diving adventures (and most people do), contact the scuba diving company and with the first lesson you have taken, you can be credited towards the full Open Water qualification, to even become a qualified diver and get the freedom of diving without an instructor.

Scuba Diving Fast Facts: - PADI stands for Professional Association of Diving Instructors. - The minimum age of the PADI Discover Scuba Diving is between 10 and 12. - The Discover program should cost you around 90 USD per person.

Bali Through a Lens Bali, a Land of Smiles I was asked to write a few words about Bali, the place I’ve called, proudly, home for the last five years and all of a sudden I realize that I might not make justice to this amazing island, so I won’t even try. Let me tell you instead about my Bali, the Bali I see through my eyes, the Bali in my head and mostly the Bali in my heart. There are so many attributes that make Bali unique, our own public paradise and probably each of us have its own favorite one. Bali is a land of beautiful scenery, a land of blues and greens, a land of beaches, a land of paddy fields, a land of strong waves and powerful volcanoes. Bali is a land of culture and tradition, a land of music, a land of dance, a land of many arts and crafts, a land of dancing eyes and fingers. Bali is a land of Gods, of ever present offerings and smells, of colorful flowers, of temples, a mystical place. But more than any other thing, Bali is a land of people, a land of beautiful, kind people, a land of amazing smiles. On September 29th 2006 I was lucky to attend a celebration of love, unity and peace in the Tanah Lot temple. I do like photography and I would do almost anything for a good one, in the process of taking this one, I slipped and fell and to my surprise I was rewarded with a few hundred smiles. A fall a thousand times worth, a second that light up my day, smiles that will last for a life time. I’m really happy to have the opportunity to share these many smiles with all of you, I hope you also get infected by them. Bali has changed my life in many ways, it has given me many friends, my wife and on the 5th of March 2008 the ultimate smile, my baby daughter Luna. For all these, for all the many beautiful things to come, I will be forever grateful. Jorge Monje

Bali’s Rules of the Road made clear

1. 2. 3. 4.

Whomsoever gets to the intersection first has right of way. Traffic signs and signals are more by way of suggestions. If, however, you stop at a red and your front tire is an inch over the white line, you will be fined. Therefore, it is best to do as the locals do and don’t stop at all. If you see a pedestrian starting to cross on a crosswalk, honk long and loud. If the pedestrian keeps going, then he is a damn fool, taking such risks. Corollary to rule 4: If you plan on being a pedestrian in Bali, it is advised that you undergo a 6 month training regime at your local track. The 50 meter hurdles is strongly recommended.

5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

If you want to wait for a gap in the traffic before turning onto a certain road, then good luck. Be Bold and Barge Forth! That’s the motto. Like underpaid and overworked cops the world over, there are Bali cops who will seek to supplement their income via your wallet. That said, however, I myself have almost always been treated with courtesy and respect by the traffic cops. Truly. It is permissible to throw stuff out the window. However, if you spit, make sure that there is no motorbike following you. To glob a motorcyclist with your expectorant is highly insulting and will lead to grief. Young girls on scooters suffer from Young Girl’s Immortality Syndrome. They will not look, guaranteed. If there is room to squeeze by, then by God, squeeze by! It doesn’t matter if you end up causing an hour long gridlock. To breathe leaded fumes is part of the cultural experience.

1 Pamper Yourself 2 Bali is of course the island of relaxation. So while you’re here, it’s easy to take good care of your mind, body and soul. Head over to the spa for a treatment or even get a massage on the beach. It doesn’t matter as long it’s all about

5 Laugh at Monkeys Who doesn’t love monkeys? The Monkey Forest in Ubud is one of the best places to see these cheeky monkeys. Laugh at their hilarious humanlike habits, but don’t let them laugh at you. Leave your valuables at home and don’t try to pet them. It’s their kingdom, and you’re their guest.


Visit a Temple (or two) Sniff in some culture and visit a Temple. And maybe even two. But it’s not necessary to visit them all, as they’re all quite similar and other than that, there are thousands of them...


See a Beautiful Sunset

The days are hot in Bali and the best way to cool down is taking a dip in the sea. Hang around a bit longer and you might catch the sun going down in a gradating sky. Bali’s sunsets are known to be quite spectacular.

you should do while you’re in Bali


Go Shopping Shops are everywhere in Bali, especially in the Kuta area. And goods are probably a lot cheaper then back home, so go ahead and throw some money around. But... make sure you improve your bargaining skills first!

See a (Kecak) Dance Ah..some more culture! Yes, Bali has lots of it and you shouldn’t miss the famous Kecak Dance. There are several places where you can witness them, but the Kecak dance at the Uluwatu Temple while the sun is setting, is one of the tourist favorites.


7 Run Through the Rain

8 Eat, Eat & Eat!

Though the Raining Season is almost over, there still can be some rainy days planned for us. No worries, often it only rains for a few hours and those drops can be quite refreshing! Just enjoy the sight of it or run through it, if you dare. The only thing about it is that you might get drenched!

Eating is fun. Especially when it’s only costing you a few Dollars/Euro. Bali has great food to offer. Look for a local warung (=restaurant) where other tourists are eating, that’ll probably mean it’s safe to eat there (you don’t want to get ‘Bali Belly’). And if you’re craving for some familiar dishes, head over to the famous ‘Eat Street’ named Laksmana or Oberoi. Here you can find popular restaurants with a more international menu. And, still super affordable! Selamat Makan (bon appetit)!

9 Spot some playfull Dolphins

Most of the tourist hang around in the south of Bali, like Kuta, Sanur, Nusa Dua... Want to see more? Plan a trip to Lovina for example. Here you can spot playfull dolphins right next to you. It’s a long ride, but if you mix it up with some sightseeing, it is really doable and you get a glimpse of the ‘real Bali’

10 Plan your Next Trip

Well, you don’t have to book now, but you will probably be heading back to Bali in the near future. Bali seems to be a magnet for people. So don’t worry if you don’t have enough time to do everything you want to do, just do it the next time you’re in Bali!
