Ubud EXCLUSIVE WORKSHOP - BALINESE HEALING Balinese scholar Pak Made Surya will offer a seven-day intensive workshop for five students only, studying different aspects of traditional Balinese Healing. Each day from August 4-10 comprises a seminar at Oka Wati’s Bungalows in Ubud, followed by a visit to a different Healer in various regions of Bali. Many visitors to Bali seek out a traditional healer, and no doubt more will do so after the August release of the Julia Roberts film “Eat Pray Love,” where the heroine returns to Bali after her first visit in order to further study with a Balinese Healer. Pak Surya has studied for eleven years with renowned Balinese Healer Cokorda Rai, and has organized and led Healing Arts tours in Bali since 1986. He lives part of the year in the US, is fluent in English and an excellent translator. For info and itinerary, go to www. or WILLING THE RAIN AWAY Do you think if we talk loudly about the lovely sunny weather we are having, we might be able to convince the weather gods to move on? I’m having a go. Too much wind and rain for my lovely Ubud. Not to mention I have a mud bath where my front lawn used to be! So I suggest we speak loudly and with great enthusiasm about the blue sky and lovely warm days, whenever they appear.

SACRED ARTS YOGA TRAINING – SCHOLARSHIP Ubud’s next School of Sacred Arts Yoga Teacher Training, beginning November 21, 2010, will support SOSA’s scholarship program for Balinese students who want to teach yoga at an international level. With so many people coming to Bali to learn and connect with our growing yoga community, it’s good to know some of the money is going to international accreditation for Balinese teachers. School of Sacred Arts have run several successful yoga teacher trainings in Ubud and other countries over the last few years, certifying students from more than a dozen countries in Europe, North America, Japan and of course Indonesia.

Now the rain’s easing off, The Grotto’s lovely back garden will be the perfect spot for a lazy lunch watching the native birds and butterflies. The Grotto, on Jl Pengosekan, down the hill from the gas station, is a great spot for live music in the evening, with excellent spaces available for business and clubs to meet. Ph 081339 857377.

Sounds like the stuff of a TV doco. A group of seven inmates at B a l i ’ s Kerobokan jail are learning the jewellery trade via a rehabilitative program run by Joanna Witt of Studio Perak, who also runs classes for tourists from her Ubud store. They include one of the less known members of the so-called Bali Nine, Si Yi Chen, and a group of six Indonesian prisoners. To Joanna, they are just students and she says it’s the most personally rewarding thing she has ever done.

One of Ubud’s best known artists, Joe Mintardja, has almost completed a series of h i l a r i o u s paintings of m o n k e y s , including a very irreverent “The Last Supper”, where the 12 apostles have become hairy indeed! Java Joe has created the marvelous series for Cinta Grill on – appropriately - Jl Monkey Forest. Joe also strums the occasional tune as a guest musician next door to Cinta at Laughing Buddha, and is – when he fits us into his busy schedule – one of the highlights of Flava lounge’s Wednesday open Mike night! Come to think of it, Joe’s one of Ubud’s nicest cheeky monkeys himself. NEW LOVE NESTS IN UBUD’S HEART Meanwhile the entrepreneurial team behind culturally sensitive Cinta Grill, Siam Sally and other great Bali Good Food (BFG) establishments are almost ready to open Cinta Inn (Love Inn, in English?).

A group of special silver pendants based on Taoism are on sale at her Ubud shops. The pendants were co-designed by Joanna and Si Yi Chen and $2 from each sale goes into the cost of continuing these classes. Please visit Studio Perak on Jl Hanoman for more information, but don’t expect her to reveal any the private stories that she’s heard from the prisoners. IN SEARCH OF A QUIET CUPPA Where’s the best spot for a cappuccino or cafe latte in Ubud? I’d love some reader assistance with this. For you, is the “best” place on a corner of a busy street, where you can see the tourist bustle happening all around, or at the market perhaps, or sitting quietly with scenery, no traffic, not a sound to be heard except the ducks? For that matter, what is the flavour of that favourite cuppa? Email: baubudnews@ NO MORE KISSES OR CUTTING

Irish Family Stories: The Gathering ‘I wanted to explore desire and hatred’- Anne Enright By Uma Anyar The Booker Prize, along with all the other coveted awards that many writers stalk, is a magical, curious thing, like a fairy wand that instantly transforms m u n d a n e r e a l i t y, grants renown, money, and status upon an individual writer who only a week before was just another writer trying to tell her truth and hoping sales would pick up. Indeed, this was the situation Anne Enright was in prior to the Booker Prize announcement. In fact, The Gathering had sold only 3,553 copies in Britain before the award. Sales shot up to 350,000 after the winner was announced. Anne Enright author of three previous novels and a collection of short stories was the dark horse in the race; she did not expect to win. But win she did, and now even her old school friend has confessed she would have to “read it,” although she was “dreading it.” Enright laughed off this response as she had grown use to the book being described as ‘grim’, ‘laconic’, ‘darkly rich’, and possessing ‘ no consolation.’ The Guardian announced: ‘Outsider beats favorites to scoop prize for tale of dysfunctional family life set in Ireland.’ There is more such praise but I will depart from the mainstream opinion experts and say I am glad I knew none of this when I read the book. I did know it had won the Man Booker Prize for 2007 and like it or not, this sort of knowledge affects the intimate experience of reading. The strongest aspect of The Gathering is not the actual story, which wanders into memories of events that could have happened, but maybe did not, and then into the present crises in the narrator’s marriage: should she leave or should she stay? The Hegarty clan’s tale of love and loss, of possible sexual abuse by a distant family member is not unique, in this time of confessional memoirs and the child sexual abuse scandal currently raging in the Catholic Church. The actual facts the grieving narrator works so hard at remembering do not save her from pain or depression, but her search leads readers into questions about the nature of desire, the power of the flesh and the hatred of loved ones that are not a part of less demanding, less well-written novels. But the narrator’s voice is compelling, assertive, and demands that you see things her way. Veronica is an angry, grieving, modern woman who cannot come to grips with the ridiculousness of living and the misery of dying. “Why bother?” she wonders. Her mother had 12 children, 7 miscarriages, one killed himself, the others went on living-for the time being. We are all here to just ‘feed the grave,’ the narrator spews out in her grief and hatred of her father and mother, whom she thinks over procreated. She sees her mother as a baby factory.

“I have not forgiven her for my sister Margaret who we called Midge, until she died, aged forty-two, from pancreatic cancer, I do not forgive her my beautiful, drifting sister Bea. I do not forgive her my first brother Ernest, who was a priest in Peru, until he became a lapsed priest in Peru. I do not forgive her my brother Stevie, who is a little angel in heaven. I do not forgive her the whole tedious litany of Midge, Bea, Earnest, Stevie, Ita, Mossie, Liam, Veronica, Kitty, Alice and the twins, Ivor and Jem.” Veronica, a thirty nine year old mother of two children, with a proper husband living in Dublin is predominately angry in her grieving and that anger is the force that drives the narrative of memories. What made Liam commit suicide by donning a bright orange road worker’s vest then filling it with stones and walking into the ocean at Brighton Beach one night? His body was pulled from the sea and saved in an English morgue locker for Veronica to identify. He was not wearing underpants under his jeans. He didn’t want to be found dead in dirty under pants. Veronica deduces this about Liam and it shows us how much she understood him. As I read this passage, I had a flash of memories about the way a whole generation of Irish and Italian Catholic working class kids were raised in the neighborhood I grew up in Paterson, New Jersey. They were constantly being told that ‘cleanliness was next to godliness ’ and that they shouldn’t ever be caught in a situation in which they could be perceived as unclean. Veronica clearly loves her brother but calls him ‘a messer’, a ‘chaos maker’, someone who never ‘pulled it together’ and made a ‘go of life’. Enright explores the haunting and unproductive power of memory and its hold on the living, on the ones who remain after ‘the thing’ is done. ‘The seeds of my brother’s death were sown many years ago. The person who planted them is long dead- at least that’s what I think. So if I want to tell Liam’s story, then I have to start before he was born. And, in fact, this is the tale that I would love to write: History is such a romantic place, with its jarveys and urchins and side buttoned boots. If it would just stay still, I think, and settle down. If it would just stop sliding around in my head.’ But no matter how much she remembers or figures out about the sexual abuse of her beautiful brother, there is no one left to blame as they are all now dead. This adds to Veronica’s conundrum about life itself. This is a book that mirrors life too realistically for many reviewers comfort. The book has been praised for its muscularity, agility and witty perceptiveness, as well as hallucinogenic, dark, lyrical prose. Interesting to find such manly terms applied to a woman’s writing.

28 July - 11 August, 2010


Continuing this fortnight to resolve the issues of the T-Square with Jupiter squaring Pluto again on the 3rd and opposite Saturn on the 17th and Saturn square Pluto on the 21st. The New Moon is at 18 degrees Leo on the 10th. Mars changes sign to Libra and teams up with Saturn on the 30th and Venus follows along on the 7th. As we integrate this intense moon cycle which began with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 12, we get a feel for the depth of change necessary in our personal, global and galactic existence. Those resisting change are feeling frustration, agitation and unrest. Allowing the density of our existence to be transmuted with cosmic love and the light of creation (Neptune conjoin Chiron) is the order of the moment. The clinging to old ways is bound to bring confrontation from without, while the inner stress created by Pluto who is demanding this transformation, at all costs. Pluto in effect is the activator for this whole play of events, pushing and ruthlessly destroying anything which is in resistance to change. Developing and becoming the Power in your own life is paramount now, as only conflicting ideas will come from the collective. Everyone has an opinion and will fight to uphold the rightness of their ideals and beliefs. Steer clear of confrontational types wherever possible and speak up for what you feel is right and appropriate within your own life. Some things are personal and are better kept that way. Be very discerning with what you share and to whom it is shared. NEW MOON 17 Leo 25 August 10, 2010 11:09 a.m.

ARIES: As Mars teams up with Saturn and sits in opposition to Uranus and Jupiter, while squaring Pluto, you no doubt feel some awesome changes in your life. Applied to your personal chart, they will bring more clarity and depth, however, as a generalization we can say that transformation is inevitable and that momentous awakening is upon you. Restrictions are imposed within relationship and you could be feeling a little caged in by responsibility and needing to adjust often. It is a work in progress, so be gentle with yourself and those you love the most. This time will pass and you will again see the light at the end of the tunnel.

LIBRA: Venus in Virgo for most of the fortnight and then moves into your sign and joins Saturn. There is the need to bring a new structure to your relationships and to implement change, as well as transform old and worn out routines within them. That’s a tall order. You must do the work or you will pay the price of not using this astrological configuration to your own benefit. Things can and will become very uncomfort able for you if you avoid this work. The upside is that your partner will probably be more than ready to embark on this journey with you. When you unite in your intention amazing and miraculous things can occur.

TAURUS: Venus the Lady of Love, will join Saturn at the end of the fortnight and Mars mid-month, bringing her into alignment with the T-square as well. You could be motivated greatly to change the way you have always operated at a core level. Ideas you once found attractive could leave you feeling a little desolate. No need to fear, for soon they will be replaced with new ones, which are more in alignment with who you are now. The recent changes in your life have allowed for this change to take place. Be gentle with yourself while all this integrates within your system. Make no hasty decisions, which you could regret later.

SCORPIO: As Pluto continues to be a key player in this field of astrological giants, you feel the undercurrents in your life, peeling away layers of karmic debt. Not everything needs labeling or understanding at an analytical level, as much as you would love to bring it into your mental scrutiny. Too much thinking or discussion will just fritter away the process and the benefits that it is possible for you to gain. Be about the work in solitude if need be or at least take time to yourself to really feel into what is yours and what belongs to other people, so that you can best discern how to act according to your own needs.

GEMINI: Mercury remains in Virgo this fortnight, and turns retrograde mid-month. In an earth sign and square to your Gemini Planets, it tends to make you a little too judgmental and critical. If you are aware of this though, you can make the necessary adjustments to modify your thinking. The hardest critic in your life, is usually yourself. Go easy on you, and give yourself a little leeway during these tense and trying times. If you stress yourself out, you could very well lose your temper with those you love and those you don’t. The consequences of this could take a long time to mend. Go gently and be kind.

SAGITTARIUS: Jupiter another key player this fortnight propelling both Saturn and Pluto to make the necessary changes. You are pushy in that fiery Arien way now and will let no one stand in your way. This is your time and you will transform whatever in your life that needs to change, in order for you to get your needs met. Saturn may want to place old relationship restrictions upon you, but with the assistance of Uranus, you will be able to stand firm in all adversity, competition and confrontation. Luck is always on your side and now more than ever. Harness this magnificent power and express your true desires and experience your wildest dreams.

CANCER: Allow this time to integrate all that has transpired in your life during July and prepare yourself for the coming year of unprecedented change, growth and expansion. Take the time often to digest and assimilate all the things in your life. Everything will run more smoothly when you are aligned at the core level, to your own sense of identity. Others can only hurt you when you are off center or leaving yourself vulnerable to external situations. Take whatever steps necessary to protect your personal self, as well as your physical body. You are stronger than you often give yourself credit for. It is time to drop the armoring in favor of common sense and self-love.

CAPRICORN: You already know that Saturn your ruler continues to be a part of this great grand cross of late and the ongoing T-square which encompasses Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter, as well as Mars joining with your ruler this fortnight. There could well be opposition to your plans and let this not deter you from them. You will need to make adjustments along the way and of course the unexpected is always apt to appear. Be flexible enough to meet it, when it comes. Mars could bring the much needed added support that you have been praying for. Be grateful for everything that you can find to be grateful for.

LEO: The Sun travels through your sign and brings some joyous opportunities and opening new doorways of perception and experience. This coming year is one of the most paramount of your life. Take the time to become aware of all that surrounds you. Be grateful for everything, and in particular those things which you have in the past, taken for granted. You are being offered the opportunity to shift your way of living to a much higher state of existence. If you take the challenge, you will be greatly rewarded with a finer and deeper sense of who you truly are, beyond the negative ego and its’ attachments. VIRGO: Mercury in your sign and Venus until the 7th brings some clarity and communication within relationship. Getting your priorities in order is the task at hand. You will get the opportunity to review all of this, as Mercury goes retrograde in your sign later in the month and through until mid-September. There is no need to concern yourself with any of this, as the planets themselves ensure that all is going according to plan. Your job is to stay in integrity and align yourself with your highest ideals, always allowing for the winds of change to come sweeping through and then adjusting yourself accordingly.

AQUARIUS: Compelled to change is the underlying theme now. Resistance only brings discomfort and suffering. Neptune in your sign joined by Chiron brings ongoing healing for you, in the form of cosmic universal love and themes of galactic significance. Life is anything but mundane right now. Interesting themes are developing constantly which keeps you in a state of high alert. You could be privy to information, which may need dissemination to a much larger audience.Let discernment lead the way, as you play your part in the unraveling of the current crisis within your life, your community and your planet. PISCES: Neptune in Aquarius is the soothing balm to all this cardinal energy, which is compelling you to grow beyond your own limitations now. The balm is strengthened by the joining of Chiron with Neptune, to create an elixir or potion of love, which is to be shared with all you encounter now. Let the light of love shine through your eyes to those in distress or confusion with all this intense energy which is beaming around our planet. If the madness is too much for them, allow the cool waters of the divine to sweep away any distress and allow the words of cosmic wisdom to pour forth. Service is your purpose, and always to yourself first. Copyright © 2010 Vibhuti-Teri Norris You can read all past articles of Horoscope at

Anti Aging & Natural Health


Stay Young and Healthy with The Latest Advances in Anti Aging Medicine


If you have been nodding your head to most of the above questions, and you are over 40 years of age, then there is a strong chance that you may be suffering from a medical condition named low testosterone. This condition is increasingly common in men (and to a lesser extent, women) in our society due to a number of factors, however the good news is that it can easily and safely be treated. If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity or lung disease and you are over 40, your chances of having low testosterone are 1 in 3. Treatment using natural testosterone replacement therapy will help you to feel and look much better, will dramatically boost your desire and ability to have much more dynamic sex, will boost muscle size, reduce body fat, improve your mood, boost your heart function, help you to feel energized and full of vitality, and importantly, can give you a feeling of youthful exuberance once again. After all, who doesn’t want to feel young, sexual, muscular, and energized again? JI Werkudara 520, Legian Kaja, Kuta Hp: 081 811 9634 email:

A Crucial Anti Aging Hormone Are you are feeling tired most of the time and have lost your zest for life? Have you put on extra weight and are your muscles turning into flab? Have you lost your strength? Is your mood flat? Have you lost your interest in sex, or is it just plain hard work having sex these days? Is your energy and vitality nothing like it used to be, or do you feel a mere shadow of your former self?

Shashi Tarot Card Reading Crystal Healing Reiki Therapy

C/He/I-13 Jan 10

testosterone replacement therapy you must have your testosterone levels accurately checked. Since testosterone is a fat soluble hormone it travels in your blood bound to a carrier protein, which renders it inactive. Standard blood tests will not reveal the free or active levels of this hormone, hence saliva hormone testing is required. As well as testing for testosterone, it is important to also check your estrogen levels, as in many men a large amount of testosterone is converted into estrogen. This is not what you want, as estrogen is responsible for fat gain, prostate problems, low libido and other unwanted effects.

C/He/I-16 Dec 09

It’s important to also know how to interpret the test results of the tests – even if your testosterone is in the “normal” range, what does that mean? Do you want to be in the normal range for a 70 yr old man? Not really. The aim of testosterone therapy is to boost your testosterone levels to those of a healthy 30yr old man. Natural Testosterone Therapy

Testosterone therapy can restore your sagging testosterone levels to a much more youthful state and is able to safely do all of the above and more. Symptoms Of Low Testosterone Testosterone deficiency is not something to take lightly. In fact, it has been linked with an increased risk of heart disease and depression. Low testosterone levels can exhibit a broad range of signs & symptoms. These include: • Body hair loss • Decreased sex drive • Depression – a recent study has shown about 30% of men with depression have testosterone deficiency. • Moodiness and Emotionality • Touchiness, Irritability & Hypochondria • Great Timidity and Inner unrest • Memory Failure and Reduced Intellectual Agility • Fatigue and decreased stamina • Aching muscles and joints • Hot flashes • Increased risk of osteoporosis • Lower sperm count • Reduced muscle mass and strength • Increased abdominal fat • Enlarged breasts in men • Thinning skin • Trouble concentrating • Weaker erections • Weaker orgasms • Wrinkling skin Dr Jonathan V. Wright, MD (Co-Author of “Maximize Your Vitality and Potency - For Men Over 40”) writes the following about natural testosterone: “For over 30 years, I’ve worked with men ages 45 and up whose symptoms and tests indicated a need for bioidentical testosterone. The results have been gratifying for everyone involved. Most notably, bio-identical testosterone therapy helps improve mood, attitude, cognitive ability, and general outlook on life. Many wives and families have observed that “Grandpa is a lot less grumpy,” remembers things better, and laughs and smiles a lot more often. Plus, bio-identical testosterone improves muscle mass and strength, rebuilds bone, strengthens the heart and blood vessels, lowers total cholesterol and blood sugar, raises HDL (“good”) cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, lessens the chances of blood clots, improves tissue oxygenation, improves the health of a non-cancerous prostate gland-and that’s all before we get to testosterone’s positive effects on libido and your sex life.”

C/He/G-16 June 10

When used correctly, natural testosterone will restore normal health and function to both men and women. However, the key word here is “correctly”. There are many types of testosterone available and knowing which one to use and how is crucial to your success with testosterone therapy. How do you know whether you should be using a testosterone cream or testosterone injections? Which forms of testosterone are natural and are exactly the same as what your body produces? What are the important precautions you must be aware of before commencing testosterone therapy? What are the possible side effects to watch for after you have commenced therapy? How long should you take testosterone therapy for? All these questions are beyond the scope of this article, however in order to check your testosterone and estrogen levels using saliva hormone testing you can call Neogen Anti Aging on 0361 767613. The trained doctors and nurses there will be able to assist you with a Testosterone Replacement Program should this be required.

The Fitness and Lifestyle Column By Natalie Kashani

Combine Fitness with Yoga


Lately, I have realised that many people, either just go to yoga practises or are strictly gym rats. Why is there this divide? What are you group-exercising, weight-lifting body sculptors so afraid of?

To Be More Beautiful EYE & NOSE

After long investigations I have made the conclusion that most people just don’t know the benefits of combining both: general fitness and yoga. Why is it important to integrate a downward dog with a sit-up?


BREAST AESTHETIC (Implant & Reduction)


Yoga intro-guide for the gym junky There are many different types of yoga to practice, so it’s important to find out which type of yoga is right for you and your fitness goals. Here’s a quick introduction to some of the most common and popular types of yoga:

C/He/G-2 June 10

Bikram Yoga - Get ready to practice yoga in 105 degree heat and in 40% humidity - hot! Bikram has a series of 26 poses that work on your overall alignment. Did I mention the calories you burn! This is well suited for the person who wants to detox and loose some extra weight. Hatha Yoga - Great for beginners or the infelxible, Hatha typically requires a lot of breath work. Classes will usually focus on slow and gentle movements. If you have a lot of stress in your life and some tight hamstrings, take a class to see how it makes you feel. Great!

Personalized Hospitality Amenities a convenient solution for products & packaging

Vinyasa Yoga - Vinyasa is usually a fast-paced type of yoga with lots of different poses. If you thought yoga was too slow-paced and repetitive for you- then you are mistaken. Sick of your routine? You will never get bored with Vinyasa because no two classes are the same. Kundalini Yoga - “Kundalini” refers to the energy of the Root Chakra, which surrounds the area around your lower spine. Expect lots of work on your “core” and your abs. You should also expect rapid movement. Ashtanga Yoga - Commonly called Power yoga, Ashtanga is physically demanding. It’s probably best suited for the athlete in you! Be prepared to be sore. Iyengar Yoga - Expect lots of props with this type of yoga such as blocks, harnesses, straps, and even cushions. There’s also a lot of focus on alignment so Iyengar can be great for physical therapy and rehabilitation. Kripalu Yoga - Considered to be one of the most gentle forms of yoga, Kripalu has more of an “inner focus.” It’s a great type of yoga for those who are either out-of-shape or just beginning to practice. Restorative Yoga - Looking to wind down after a long day of work? Or perhaps you want to quiet your mind? Restorative yoga might be the answer to your method of relaxation.

It seems in this country that the more medication that you prescribe, the better. The first and most obvious reason is that the doctors usually get a kickback from the sale of prescription drugs. This is indeed a problem worldwide. Secondly many doctors believe that it is their duty to give as much medicine as possible for even the slightest symptom or potential symptom, and thirdly, many people are just not satisfied that they have been treated unless they go away with a handful of pills and lotions. I once had a parent that was extremely angry that I had not recommended antibiotics for his child that clearly had a very simple upper respiratory tract infection that would certainly pass by it self. I even knew a doctor once that prescribed antibiotic cream, antifungal cream, anti-itch cream and steroid cream for a rash. Why so may creams? He did not know what the rash was so he prescribed creams for every possible cause! The most common over prescribed medication here are antibiotics. When antibiotics were discovered back in the 1940’s they were hailed as the wonder drug of the century. Certainly many people that once perished from simple infections were being saved. Even today antibiotics are the most valuable medicines known to man. However, as a society we are using them far too frequently. I don’t know about you, but every time a friend or relative comes from the doctors surgery here, they have at least one kind of antibiotic prescribed. Even more frustrating are the little packets of powder often dispensed for children. Who knows what these concoctions contain? My suspicion is they contain a potent mix of antibiotics, steroids, and vitamins; but it would be nice to know for sure! Antibiotics used appropriately can stop infections and save lives. When used inappropriately they can do more harm than good. So how does the average Joe know when medicines have been over prescribed, and when the drugs are really necessary? First of all ask your doctor exactly what condition he thinks you have and how the medication that has been prescribed will treat it? This may make some doctors a little prickly as in this country they are generally not use to having their opinions and therapy questioned. Indonesians at large generally do not question doctors at all. It might be worth saying to him/her that you are not doubting their knowledge or suggestions, but that you are interested in your disease and treatment (indeed you have a right to know!).

Are you taking too much medicine?

Just a few days ago a family came to my office after their daughter had been diagnosed with typhoid fever. They had been seen by a local doctor who had correctly made the diagnosis, but had then ensued to prescribe a myriad of medications, most of them completely unnecessary. The treatment for typhoid fever is 14 days of specific antibiotic therapy as well as paracetamol (or other similar medication) for aches and fever. This young lady had been prescribed 14 days of Chloramphenicol (a relatively old fashioned antibiotic that can have undesirable side effects however it is still effective and cheap), paracetamol for pain and fever, dexamethasone (a steroid! for what?) as well as terbutaline (a potent asthma medication) and an antihistamine (anti-allergy / itching medication). When I enquired with the parents as to why the child has so many medications they were as mystified as I was! Was the child asthmatic or did she have a cough? – No. Did she have a rash or itching? – No. So why all these remedies for symptoms that she did not even have?




Also make sure that the doctor tells you exactly what the medicine that he/she prescribes is for, and exactly what is in it? Generally medicines here are dispensed in a little clip-plastic with nothing but “3 x day” written on it. The original foil package that the drug is in also has little information on it. Often only the trade name for the drug is written on the package (eg “Claneksi” contains amoxicillin and clavulenic acid, but this does not appear on the package), so even if you try to research the medicine yourself, and the drug has been produced and “named” in Indonesia, the name of the drug does not appear on any website. Make sure that you get complete prescribing information: • How should the medicine be taken? With or without food? Some medicines can be taken with food but not with milk. • How many times a day at what interval should I take the medicine? • How long should I take the medicine for and what will happen if I stop the medicine suddenly? • Will the medicine interact with other medicines? Some medicines will decrease the effectiveness of the oral contraceptive pill. This is worthwhile knowing! • Will the medicine make me sleepy and affect my ability to work or drive? • Will the medicine make me sun-sensitive and should I wear a sun block? • If you are pregnant are breast-feeding is the medicine safe? • Is the medicine safe for young children or babies? • What are the common side effects of the medicine? (Some commonly prescribed medicines can turn your urine bright orange or green which can be alarming if you are not forewarned!) • What are the side effects that should cause concern that need reporting to your doctor? Fortunately in this day and age information on-line regarding medicines is freely available (at least in the English language anyway), and it is easy to research any medicines that you have been prescribed. Be wary of reading all the side effects of medication as it can be pretty frightening some times, however most severe reactions and side effects are rare, and just as many life threatening conditions are caused by eating peanuts as they are from taking some medications! For those that are really keen on checking information on drugs prescribed in Indonesia, drug compendiums (MIM’s) are readily available at book stores like Gramedia, and they even have an English edition. All in all most doctors prescribe medicines with good intent, and genuinely want to assist in your healing process, but the message here is be aware and don’t be afraid to ask “Do I REALLY need that medicine?”.

Success is a state of maind. if you want success, start thinking of yourself as a sucess. C/He/G-5 May 10

Mother’s Little Helpers Is nothing new in Hollywood? Lately, most American movies seem to be re-makes of previously successful older films. ‘Mother’s Little Helpers’ is very reminiscent of Tom Cruise’s youthful 1984 comedy ‘Risky Business’. In that film Tom turns his parent’s house, while they are away on vacation, into a brothel, so that he can pass his Business Administration college course. In ‘Mother’s Little Helpers’, teenage heart throb Kyle Gallner pimps his fellow students to some older sexually deprived women, to pay for his expensive private high school tuition. Director K. Asher Levin is able to bring a fresh approach to some well worn material, and makes an amusing sex comedy. Chanel Coco & Igor Stravinsky French fashion designer Coco Chanel is very much in vogue at the moment. There have been a few films recently about her life. This latest one, set in Paris in 1913, and directed by Jan Kounen, looks at her affair with Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. The affair isn’t all that passionate. It seems more a meeting of minds, and Coco appears to act as a muse and patron to Igor’s music more then anything else. Actually, the movie is a bit slight on plot, but, it is quite sexy in places. Being about Coco Chanel, there are some fabulous costumes based on her fashion designs, and some sumptuous interior decorations. The movie stars Anna Mouglalis and Mads Mikkelsen. Our Family Wedding This is an ‘ensemble’ comedy, directed by Rick Famuyiwa, and stars Forest Whitaker, America Ferrera, Carlos Mencia, Regina King, and Lance Gross. It concerns a Black American family and a Mexican American family, and the racial stereotype problems they encounter when the two families are to be joined through marriage. The humor doesn’t really go the full distance, so you will find there is some considerable padding placed in the movie to fill it out. Even so, I can think of worse ways to while away 90 minutes. The movie is pleasant enough. Fans of the American TV sitcom ‘Ugly Betty’ will be disappointed to discover that the considerable charms America Ferrera displays in that popular show, do not really carry across to the big screen. Prince of Persia Directed by Mike Newell, this is a big budget American action movie. I think the movie is all about a Prince wrongly accused of murdering his father, and trying to prove his innocence. There is also something about a dagger and the magical powers it possesses. I am not sure. I might have drifted off for some time while watching the nonsense. The movie relies heavily on special effects, and there is plenty of repetitious action. Jake Gyllenhaal makes an adequate enough hero, while Gemma Arterton’s high pitched, squeaky, voice makes her hard to take. Still, she’s a hot looking chick. No doubt, 14 year old boys are going to be enraptured by the movie. When Love Is Not Enough In 1918, when Lois Burnham married Bill Wilson, their future together looked bright and rosy. Bill was an up and coming commodities investor, and Lois a popular figure amongst Wall Street society. However, the demon ‘drink’ was to shatter their lives. Based on a true story, the movie depicts how Lois copes with Bill’s alcoholism, and her faith in his eventual recovery. Bill Wilson was to over come his addiction, and he went on to create ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’, while Lois was to form ‘Al-Anon’, a support group for family and friends of alcoholics. The movie is produced by Hallmark, and designed for American Cable Television. John Kent Harrison directs competently, while Winona Ryder and Barry Pepper give solid performances. The movie’s message out weighs its cinematic merits. Cold Souls American actor Paul Giamatti plays himself in this bizarre surreal comedy. Paul is agonizing over his interpretation of

the title role in a production of ‘Uncle Vanya’, and when he comes across an article in ‘The New Yorker’, he decides to put his soul into ‘cold storage’. Having relieved himself of the burden of a soul, Paul is finally able to throw himself into his acting. Meanwhile, over in Russia, the soap opera actress wife of a mobster, wonders if possessing the soul of an American actor would improve her own television performances. She schemes to acquire one. Directed by Sophie Barthes, this is a very strange movie, but it does manage to maintain interest. Where God left his Shoes A homeless man has one day to find employment, and thus qualify for an apartment in a housing project, and be able to provide shelter for his family. Together, with his stepson, on Christmas Eve, he scours the cold, snowy, streets of New York looking for a job. John Leguizamo gives a very believable performance in this gritty film, written and directed by Salvatore Stabile. It successfully exposes the underbelly of America’s unprivileged. Greenberg Ben Stiller, trying to be serious for once, and newcomer Greta Gerwig, star in this run-of-the-mill romantic comedy. Ben plays a carpenter, recovering from a nervous breakdown, who, while house sitting for his brother, falls in love with his brother’s off beat personal assistant. The movie is fairly predictable, but, it does have some snappy dialogue every now and then.

Bali Juniors Perform Well in National Cricket Championships The Globe Under-17 National Cricket Championships took place in Jakarta in June. A total of 13 teams competed in the tournament, which included 12 provincial Indonesian teams as well invitational team the Singapore national U-13 side. The tournament was a success not only in terms of an improvement in the overall level of cricket played but also in the interest and publicity that the tournament generated. The provincial teams that competed in the event were North Sumatra, Lampung, Banten, West Java, Central Java, East Kalimantan, North Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, Bali, West Nusa Tenggara, East Nusa Tenggara, and Papua. At the end of the round robin games Bali was a clear standout on top of the ladder, followed by East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) and West Java. In the semi finals both Bali and West Java registered 8 wicket victories against Sulawesi Selatan and NTT respectively to enter the final of the tournament. Bali batted first in the grand final and set West Java a target of 100 in 20 overs. West Java reached the total with two wickets spare to become the Globe U-17 National Champions. Bali’s I Kadek Gamantika was awarded the player of the tournament.

Following the Championships national selectors chose a preliminary squad of 18 players from which a team of 14 will be selected to represent the U-17 Indonesian national team in the Pepsi ICC EAP U-17 Trophy in Port Vila, Vanuatu in September. The tournament is hosted by the ICC EAP and the Vanuatu Cricket Board with four teams competing for the trophy: Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Fiji and Indonesia. The final squad for the tour will be announced after the first training camp that will be held in Bali this month. The five Balinese players who made the preliminary squad are I Kadek Gamantika, I Km Oka Artana Yasa, A A Adi Ari Kusuma, Kadek Agus Jaya Wisnawa, I Dw Gede Putra Kisawa. In other cricket news, the Madras Gymkhana Club, which was established in 1884 and is one of the oldest cricket clubs in India, toured Indonesia recently. The team played a T-20 and a 50 over game against the Jakarta Cricket Association selection team and then traveled to Bali to play the Cricket Bali team in a T-20 game. The Madras Gymkhana team proved too experienced for the young Balinese team in the T-20 game, winning by 8 wickets. The visiting Indian club also donated cricket gear and cricket balls to help support the development of cricket in Indonesia. And in a boost to cricket in Bali, a former Australian first class cricketer, Brent Palfreyman, has generously volunteered to come to Bali and spend six months assisting the Cricket Bali administration. Palfeyman, who has just recently retired as the Chairman of Cricket Tasmania, will bring a wealth of knowledge about the game and its administration. He will

aim to help strengthen cricket administration in Bali as well as assist with sponsorship for cricket development on the island. He will also be working with the Indonesian U-17 national team at their training camps before they head off for the ICC EAP U-17 trophy in Vanuatu later this year. Sports at the Sanur Village Festival As per previous years, there will be lots of sporting activities held as a part of the Sanur Village Festival. The annual event will this year return to its birthplace at the Hotel Grand Bali Beach and will be held from August 4th to August 8th. The sporting competition at this year’s festival will be organised by the Bali Sports Foundation and will feature a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, a junior rugby league event as well as a junior soccer tournament. There will also be additional events on the beach, with windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing activities. For all enquiries and entries, email

Local Surfer Wins West Java Open

Uninterruptible Power Supply

Dede Suryana claimed victory at his home break of Cimaja, West Java, to win the West Java Open 2010 last week. Over 65 surfers from all over Indonesia traveled to West Java to compete for cash and points towards the CocaCola Indonesian Surfing Championship, where at years end the overall champion in the Open Division will receive Rp. 100 million. Suryana traded waves and big maneuvers with Bali’s Pepen Hendrik in the 25-minute final, held in 3-4 foot waves at the cobblestone beach righthander. Suryana took the lead early and never relinquished it, but was seriously threatened near the end of heat. Had Hendrik landed an aerial he attempted on the inside section there might have been a different result, but the consistency and quality of Suryana’s surfing had him completing difficult maneuvers and racking up points to come back to the beach the victor.

Runner up Pepen Hendrik, who currently leads the Championships points table, received Rp 7 million and 2,500 points. In other surfing news, as this edition of This Sporting Life goes to print, some of the world’s best junior surfers are competing in the Billabong Pro Junior Asia at Bali’s Keremas beach. The event has the top pro juniors from Australia, Japan, Brazil, Philippines, South Africa, New Zealand, and Hawaii in Bali to compete for their share of the USD 25,000 in prize money as well as well as Pro Junior World Championship points. 16 Indonesian surfers are competing in the event.

Let’s speed up your laptop Sometimes I have to use my wife’s five year old laptop when my very fast desktop computer is in for repairs or upgrades. Boy, is it slow in comparison. Most laptop computers are usually slower overall than most desktops, unless you spend thousands of dollars on the highest-performance “desktop replacements.” Portability is great but faster definitely matters. Here are some things you can do speed up your laptop. 1. Replacing a standard 5400 rpm hard drive with a 33 percent faster 7200 rpm drive is probably the best investment you can make in a laptop. Disk operations are the biggest bottleneck in all but the cheapest, underpowered laptops. Replacing a laptop’s hard drive is much easier than the same upgrade on a desktop machine. There’s usually just one screw to remove. Then you pull off the drive bay cover; pull out the hard drive; slip in the new one; format the new drive and install all your software and data. The restoration of programs and data is easier if you made a disk image copy before removing the old drive. Any shop in RIMO that repairs laptops will be able to do this for you. It might even be free if you buy the faster drive from them. There is one other possibility, that is a SSD (Solid State Drive), wow are they fast, but they are also pretty expensive AND currently have a small capacity. Go here: and put in your laptop brand and model and see what they suggest. 2. Adding more RAM improves laptop speed, up to a point. Add up the memory requirements of your operating system and the applications you use most, and get the next higher increment of RAM. Going beyond 4 GB yields only small performance increases so it’s seldom worth it. However, if you use your laptop to manipulate large data bases, video files, or graphic files, you may want additional RAM so you can set up a RAM drive large enough to hold such files. If you use a RAM drive be sure to save your work to disk frequently, as any shutdown of the computer will lose all data stored in RAM. 3. Defragmenting your hard drive can provide noticeable speed increases, particularly if your laptop’s hard drive is running 75 per cent full or more. A file that is all in one piece can be read much faster than one that lies scattered all over the drive in several fragments. Some utilities, such as Advanced System Care Pro, optimize the placement of files and folders on your hard drive so that the most frequently used files are at the outer rim of the disk where it moves faster beneath the read/write head. 4. Keep your hard drive free of unneeded files, so that the operating system has fewer files to index and search when one is needed. Empty your Recycle Bin and delete temporary files often. Uninstall programs and delete old pictures and videos that you haven’t used in a long time. Don’t be a packrat like me. 5. By default, Windows uses the power conservation features built into modern laptops to save battery life at the expense of some performance. You can change these settings in Control Panel > Power Options to use maximum performance all the time, but you should be prepared for shorter battery life. This may not matter if your laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet most of the time. Want more ideas for speeding up your laptop? Bob Rankin’s humorous “Make Windows XP Run Faster!” ( contains some tips that apply to both laptops and desktop models. And even if you run Vista or Windows 7, almost all of those tips still apply. Check ‘em out!

This week’s first tip is short and sweet: You can quickly create shortcuts to a file by holding down CTRL+SHIFT while dragging the file to your Desktop! Have a busted mouse, well here is our second tip: To restore a mouse you are about to throw away; try this: 1. Soak and agitate it in hot soapy water (unplug it first) 2. Rinse in hot water and shake dry 3. Rinse in isopropyl alcohol, return the alcohol to its container 4. Hang to dry overnight 5. If it still doesn’t work, cut off its tail! ============================================================================================ Have a question or problem?

The Power of Gardening

I am a firm believer in the power of gardening. The therapeutic benefits of gardening have been recognized since humans first cultivated plants. Some people think of gardening as a chore, whereas others take up gardening as a hobby. Whether you love gardens and gardening or you hate the idea of even getting your hands dirty, you should know that gardening offers many physical and mental benefits to those who are willing to try it. Numerous studies have been undertaken which show that gardening offers many health related benefits for people of all ages, but we already know this! The act of gardening goes back at least 4000 years. Egyptian paintings of the 1500s BC are some of the earliest physical evidence of horticulture and landscape design, depicting lotus ponds surrounded by rows of acacias and palms. Persia also has an ancient gardening tradition, Darius the Great was said to have had a “paradise garden” and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon were renowned as a Wonder of the World. Aside from its glorious history, gardening is a great way to get some fresh air, exercise, reduce stress, be creative, and develop patience. Strength, endurance and flexibility are all improved by gardening, making it one of the best all round exercises. Gardening can be as much exercise as you can make of it. Weeding or cultivating can burn around 200 calories an hour. Doing more strenuous work such as moving rocks can burn as much as 600 calories per hour. Physical activity also releases endorphins into the body, which help to alleviate stress and its negative results. Studies have shown that just being in a garden lowers blood pressure and that people who are exposed to gardens and gardening recover more quickly from illness. I guess that you could say that gardening is just what the doctor ordered! Gardening can also be a form of meditation. The hustle and bustle of everyday life is difficult to avoid. A garden provides a place of calm. It can be a personal private and peaceful place to escape to, a place to go to when we need to restore our sense of wellbeing. It’s obvious, for example meditation retreats are usually based around gardens because of their natural calming effect. Meditation and gardens go hand in hand. Gardening reconnects us with nature and our self. Simply spending time in a garden, enjoying the sights, sounds and smells around us, can invoke a powerful sense of belonging and spiritual peace. The most important aspect to a garden is that the space feels comfortable and nurturing to you. Something simple like watching a butterfly flutter around the garden at close range or the scent of a flower can clear the mind. This is the point, nature will calm you! At the same time gardening is an art and can be a form of self-expression. It gives us a chance to be creative. The time spent researching different plants, and planning where to put them is a great brain workout. Planning the garden

and then caring for the garden can help a person clear the mind. It allows us to refocus our attention on creation. A garden is a living artwork that will change over time. As a garden evolves, so to do the countless ways in which a living area can be filled with plants, ponds, and other forms of nature. There are infinite styles of landscaping tailored to each individual, and it can be extremely exciting to find and adapt yours. C/Ho/G-2 June 10

Gardening teaches us patience and responsibility and helps us to slow down. Things happen slow and steady in the garden. Unlike other activities, gardening does not produce instant results. A gardener must work and wait for their rewards. Once a basic plan has been developed, you till the soil and sow the seeds and wait for your garden to grow. In order to achieve healthy plants, the garden needs care and attention. Weeds and pests must be constantly controlled. The fruits of your labor will be a beautiful garden space, flowers or vegetables. The act of gardening improves our problem solving ability and teaches us patience and responsibility. For example a common problem such as, ‘why is that plant sick, and how can I fix it?’ or ‘how can I fix that problem without chemicals?’ stimulates and encourages the mind to look for the best solutions. This process gives you confidence and will enhance your problem solving and decision making skills in other areas of your life. Gardening offers nutritional benefits to those who plant a vegetable garden. Vegetable gardeners know exactly where their produce is coming from and they also know exactly what chemicals were used to grow the produce. There’s no substitute for freshly picked foods straight from your garden to your dinner table, they taste better and are much healthier. If you are in the garden keep these tips in mind. Warm up before starting by stretching to prevent muscle soreness, back pain, and repetitive strain injuries. Change activity every 15 minutes, and don’t let your body stay in the same position for extended time periods of time. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing long sleeved shirts and a hat. When picking up tools or heavy lifting, bend your knees and keep your back straight. Good Luck and Happy Gardening!

ESTABLISHED 1974 by Bali International Women’s Association by Renee Thorpe

The Mobile Dental Clinic: Bringing Smiles All Around Of all the projects sustained by the Bali International Women’s Association, the group’s Mobile Dental Clinic (MDC) is probably the most well-known around Bali. On any given day, the white bus brings its dental staff and fully fitted modern clinic to remote villages like Ban (far up Mt Agung’s slopes), or Jatiluwih in gorgeous Tabanan. It has even visited patients in Nusa Lembongan and Ceningan. Wherever it is, arrival of the clinic on wheels is greeted with fanfare and excitement. About one hundred patients are treated in a day’s visit, and although teeth cleaning is the usual action, expert extractions and fillings are done as needed. But some patients, particularly the children, are pleased to receive dental care lessons. And there’s always a gift of toothpaste and toothbrushes for each patient. Oftentimes BIWA ladies come along to help organize the event and also give out donated school supplies and toys. The Publicis Group has been a generous donor of such goodies. Once in a while, it’s a BIWA lady herself who sponsors the extras, like healthy snacks for all. It’s a tall order, when anywhere around 150 - 200 patients might sign up with their banjar and crowd around for their turn. BIWA owns the clinic outright and sponsors quite a bit of the dental staff’s fees, collects MDC donations, and organizes its schedule. But other well-known yayasans like the East Bali Poverty Project also sponsor the clinic for trips to areas of need. It was the EBPP that got the funding to cover the doctor and staff fees for its first three years of operation, and the partnership between them, BIWA, and the Dental Faculty of Mahasaraswati University, led by Drg Panji Triadnya, proved very successful in this endeavor. Like any “teaching” hospital, the MDC is a great way for dental students to practice and perfect their skills. The mobile unit can also serve as a clinic for women’s

reproductive health care in other under-served areas of Bali, according to Dr. Mahendri, the Dean of the Dental Faculty at the university. Help comes from all over. Western Australia’s Dr J. F. Barry Walsh was once a very generous donor of dental equipment, bringing in 93 kilos of supplies for the MDC. And local businesses like Denpasar’s Café Me have also paid for supplies such as toothpaste.

C/Ho/G - 14 July 10

A recent stop was the Kerobokan Prison, where inmates were given checkups and lessons in dental hygiene. The MDC has gone to orphanages like Denpasar’s Wisma Harapan Anak, and at times like that, it’s almost like a circus coming to town, when BIWA ladies initiate games and activities for children waiting to be treated. There is always a need for donations, and BIWA can set aside for the Mobile Dental Clinic any money earmarked for that project alone. Please contact the BIWA Centre office at : Jl D.

C/BM/G-7 April 10

by On a recent sunny morning, I had a work function on at the Taman Ismail Marzuki cultural complex in Central Jakarta. After enjoying a morning of paintings and performances, I stepped out into the day in the search for lunch. As I headed toward the exit with nothing but food on my mind, a cheerful university student type sporting a bright orange baseball cap approached me, one arm extended with a piece of paper in his hand. I sped up and gave him the usual polite “No, thank you”. But as I walked past him, I realized that the paper was blank. This young man wasn’t trying to sell me anything at all. I was intrigued. “Hello mbak. Could you please write down your wish for our homeland?” he said, handing me the paper and a pencil. I had no idea what he wanted with some bule’s wish for Indonesia, but I didn’t question him. Having just been to a conference about discrimination against children, I decided that my wish for Indonesia was “equality”. “Thank you mbak,” he said, and handed me a badge that matched his baseball cap. The badge revealed that he was from an extra-curricula religious group from Atma Jaya University. I walked off and wondered, What are they going to do with my wish? Will they have some existential discussion about equality? Will they put all the wishes in a box and bury them as a time capsule? Will people generations later laugh at how cheesy and naive I am? What happened to that piece of paper, I will never know. What I do know is that this fleeting interaction had my mind working on overdrive, thinking about equality in Indonesia. There are plenty of inequalities in Indonesia – obvious ones, like those between the sexes and different socioeconomic groups. But with the theme stuck in my head, I began to notice all sorts of ironic cases of equality, or more accurately, reverse inequality. I hailed a cab in Cikini and we passed the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle, or the Bunderan HI, which is basically Jakarta’s heart, pumping vehicles of all descriptions every which way to keep the city going. After the traffic circle we reached the predictable gridlock, and a man outside looked into my cab. He was a kaki lima, one of those guys that sell snacks from two-wheeled carts on the side of the street. I was starving. I’d been stuck in a cab for close to an hour. This kaki lima, with his tahu and tempe, was a godsend.

I rolled down my window, and bought some of his treats, wrapped in a homemade newspaper cup. Next to him, a middle-aged businessman in a Mercedes laughed at the site of this famished bule buying such average food in the middle of a traffic jam. Somehow, this poor kaki lima, a bule in a Bluebird and wealthy businessman in a fancy car were lined up side by side, on equal footing. Jakarta’s traffic does not discriminate. Perhaps the national motto saying should go “Unity in Macet”.

C/BM/G-14 July 10

That evening, with a full stomach and after a day of hard work, I decided to head to the Mandarin Hotel for a drink, back out near the bunderan. During peak hour in Jakarta, the 3-in-1 rule applies, which means you need at least three people in your car if you want to use the main road. This has given way to a whole industry of “jockeys”, who, for a small fee, will take a ride with you to allow you to fasttrack your trip. Usually, the jockeys stand in a line on the side of the road, a few meters apart, one arm out in the universal hitchhiker’s stance. Again stuck in traffic, I watched the jockeys get snapped up like hotcakes, and before I knew it, there were only two left. Two cars pulled up at around the same time to pick both of them up. It was these two jockeys’ lucky day. Finally, demand had outstripped supply and the jockeys had power over the elite. The two men in suits rolled down their windows and the bid began. In the end, the two wide-grinned jockeys entered one of the cars and the other driver left in a fit of rage. I finally arrived at the Mandarin and told my girlfriends about my day of reverse inequality. We all had a laugh and ordered a round of drinks. “I’ll have a gin and tonic, thanks,” I said to the bartender. As I took out my wallet, the bartender smiled and said, “No miss. The drinks are free tonight. It’s ladies’ night.” While I’ve always found ladies’ nights back home in Sydney a little sexist, for many reasons, I decided that this was a sign that my wish for the homeland – or some twisted version of it – had come true. Bottoms up, Jakarta!

“A Well Scrubbed Pig”

It is an image that reappears when the conversation turns towards someone’s obsessive pursuit of sterility. Many years ago a whole group of my family moved en masse to the West coast of America only to return with wonderous tales of sterility and an obsession with cleanliness that prompted images of a nation full of people glowing with the hot flush left by a well applied scrubbing brush and, inevitably, aroused that forgotten but always lurking image of the well scrubbed pig. We Brits are not quite so fastidious and tend to believe wholeheartedly in the need to build up a good strong immune system. I was reminded of this recently when reading comments in the Indonesian press about how modern mothers in this country are so influenced by the adverts they see on television that some are depriving their children of a good healthy dose of dirt. Increasing incidences of ailments such as allergies are being put down to immune systems not being exposed to bugs as nature intended. We all know that hygiene is important but even so, I was surprised recently to come across an old Indonesian lady who, in spite of living in fairly dire poverty, was boiling water to wash the family’s towels. She knew all too well of the importance of hygiene and that the most basic and effective form of hygiene is to use hot water for washing. The vast majority of Indonesians do not have running hot water. There are also quite a number of expatriates in Indonesia who have got used to the climate and also don’t have water heaters. Times are changing and there are an increasing number of people, particularly in Bali and the major cities of Indonesia, who have hot running water in their houses and by far the majority of these use electric storage water heaters. Heaters of this type are not expensive to buy and are very convenient to use. They sit somewhere out of the way delivering hot water continuously for years without us giving them a second thought. One day our water heater will inevitably remind us of its existence by breaking down and we will have to either repair or place it (once we manage to find it). So let us look at a standard electric storage water heater. Basically they consist of a cylindrical tank (which may come in either vertical or horizontal configuration) made of mild steel with an electric heating element to heat the water. The storage tank may be made of stainless steel or with a “glass” coating (stove enamel) to stop it rusting. The tank has a thick coating of expanded polyurethane insulation around it and a thin sheet steel cover over this. A thermostat switches the heating element off when the water reaches its desired temperature which can be adjusted by means of a rotary knob usually on the bottom of the heater. The thermostat is usually a brass rod contained in a copper tube which extends into the tank with a temperature sensor attached to the exposed end.

Water heaters are normally installed with a pressure relief valve in the system which in many cases doubles as a bleed valve to allow air to be let out of the tank. How big a heater do you need? I recently came upon a man who had done all the right calculations and had installed a fine 300 litre water heater (that is about the size the British army used to clean up the lads after the Battle of the Somme). When he switches it on the lights on the bypass go dim momentarily before his electrical circuits cut out.

You will probably find that, in fact, you will not need a lot of hot water here. Bali is close to the equator and most people find they only need enough hot water in their shower to raise the temperature a small amount. If you wish to fill a bath this is a different matter. Architects these days often have a tendency to believe that a luxurious house must have a very large bath without thinking about how much water it will take to fill it. Shortly after moving into their new residence proud new owners may try and fill the bath only to find that they run out of hot water just as the water level has covered their toenails. They may enquire about a larger water heater only to find that their electricity supply can’t cope with it and the bath ends up never being used. If you are designing a house and you really want a bath it is probably a good idea to consider the amount of water your bath is going to need against the size of your water heater. As a rule of thumb most houses use an 80 litre water heater for a single bathroom and a 100 litre heater for two bathrooms. For 3 bathrooms use an 80 litre and a 100 litre unit. I recently came a cross a couple with a 50 litre tank for their bathroom and they say that they never have problems.

Of course the butchers shop display gave rise to that well known expression “a well scrubbed pig”, a meaningful phrase that, when combined with such a memorable image, sits in some distant backwater of the mind ready to spring out without notice when an appropriate situation avails itself.

C/BM/I-21 April 10


It didn’t seem right to a young lad. Pigs are aways seen covered in mud snuffling around with snotty noses in the muck. The pig in the butchers shop window was always unbelievable clean and very pink, a veritable vision of health (in spite of its rather dead condition). A picture of bodily cleanliness matched only by television adverts that feature cherubim babies that show no sign of vomit, rumbling noises or pungent, full nappies that usually characterise younger members of the world’s population.

pressures found in your house water system, typically 20 to 50 pounds per square inch can be easily contained in a small diameter pipe but puts a considerable force onto the large internal surface of a water tank. Because of the risk of explosions most countries around the world have strict standards which govern the design and manufacture of pressure vessels.

I remember as a child looking in awe into butchers’ shop windows. My nose pressed against the glass I would see the wonders of animals’ innards exposed. The inevitable steak, minced beef and mutton, pies and sausages of course but also more interesting things such as tripe, black puddings and pigs trotters. But what always caught my eye, sitting in pride of place in the centre, would often be a pig.

When deciding the size of water heater you will need to consider the amount of electricity it will use and whether you have enough power. Large heaters need large amounts of power to heat them up and cause palpitations for the staff down at PLN to say nothing of your electricity bills. Typically a 50 or 80 litre heater will have a heating element which uses 1,200 watts of power while a 100 litre uses 1,500W. Higher power means the water heats more quickly, useful if you have a well used bathroom. Some heaters use far more power than this particularly in Europe or America where there are not the same limitations on how much power is available and people don’t expect to have to wait long for their water to heat up. How hot? The temperature of water in water heaters is usually set around 60 to 65 degrees C. The temperature shouldn’t be set much higher than this and, in fact, in many countries there are legal limits regarding allowable water temperatures to protect people from being scalded. It is a good idea to keep pipework short between the tank and the bathroom or you’ll need a good book to read waiting for the water to arrive. Typical problems These heaters are low maintenance and will usually run for years without attention. Problems that may occur are:

The water tank often has a sacrificial anode (a piece of zinc or magnesium) in side it which corrodes instead of the steel tank thereby protecting the steel. These anodes are usually designed to last between 5 and 8 years. It should be noted that heaters have a built in obsolescence in that once the sacrificial anode corrodes away the tank will start to rust. It is important that the heater is properly earthed to make sure the anode works correctly.

- Burned out heating elements which may be caused by chlorides in the water attacking the heating element, by running dry or simply element failure. - Thermostat failure which may mean the heating element will not switch on. Well designed systems are designed to fail in the off position to prevent overheating. - Build up of air in the heater lowering the water level below the water outlet pipe. This is easily solved by opening the pressure relief valve to release the air. - Rusting of the internal storage tank which means you have to buy a new heater. - Rusting of the outer casing - a common problem when mounted outdoors close to the sea.

Electric water heaters are usually pressurised these days. This has a distinct advantage over the non pressurised systems of former times in that you can pipe them into your water supply pipework and the pressure in your hot and cold water taps will be virtually the same. This does mean that you need to be aware that the heater is a pressure vessel and should be well manufactured, handled with care and properly installed. The

Titim Eliawati:

Executive Director IHF Bali Titim Eliawati was born and grew up in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra Province. After high school she enrolled in the Bogor Agriculture Institute and graduated w i t h a b a c h e l o r ’s degree in Community Nutrition in 2001. After u n i v e r s i t y, T i t i m worked in a shoe company for two years as a developer for new designs, then for four years in a logistic firm in Medan as a branch manager. At the end of 2007, after six months as a volunteer, Titim joined the International Humanity Foundation as the center director for IHF Jakarta, created to assist impoverished children who can not afford the costs of public schooling. For the past year Titim has traveled to Kenya and Thailand to train new staff. Presently she is in the U.S.A. to meet with IHF volunteers and introduce them to Indonesian customs and culture. Why did you first become interested in nutrition and diet? As soon as I realized that education could make an important contribution in the way we choose, cook and eat our food. Nutrition is extremely important for the health of our bodies and our minds.

Karangasem, where we run both our class sponsorship and the education programs. We are also active in Songan in Kintamani. Since 1997, IHF has helped in the education of almost one thousand children in Bali. How did it start? Carol Sasaki started her own project in Buitan in 1997. The severe economic downturn at the time had such a huge impact on the community that many families could not afford to send their children to the school. Buitan remains to this day the Bali center for IHF programs.

C/BM/I-18 Nov 09

How does it work? IHF believes in the “Pass It On” philosophy, which encourages people who have received a free education to pass it on to others. For only USD $10 per month a sponsorship allows a child to attend classes free at IHF centers where they take extra English, math and computer classes so they can perform better in public schools. One hundred percent of the money going towards the children’s educational costs. How do the children like school? They are thriving. We believe that all children are smart, just in different ways. They are quite motivated because they are attending classes at both our education center and at a formal public school. One of our students, Jero Balian Arsini, is quite brave to keep going to school in Songan village because education for girls is not really encouraged. What are the percentages of boys to girls? In Songan, 70% boys, 30% girls. At our Buitan center, it’s 50:50. How does IHF finance its operations? Our sponsorship system is people to people – sponsor directly to child. Our children communicate every month with their sponsors. We raise money from friends, family and volunteers who want to sponsor a child. All donations go to the children. How do you find volunteers? We place ads on many websites, which provide free posting for us. People wanting to volunteer will also apply through our website. Some of our volunteers are friends of our core staff. We carefully process all applications, which come in from all over the world. What part of your work do you like best?

Does your education centers allow visitors? Yes, as long as they get permission. People may email us or call the director at the center. How can people contact IHF?

Where does IHF find staff? IHF is run entirely by volunteers. Carol Sasaki, the founder, created a system in which anyone can help needy children by sharing their time and knowledge in any way they can. It’s hard to believe and difficult to do but it happens at IHF. Even the center directors are volunteers. We just get a small stipend for our living expenses and live at the center. I work 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. I love the work because it means helping children.

Hati Hati! Languages in Peril - By Ima Deville Half of the worlds estimated 7000 languages will die in the next 50 years. Alarmed linguists from all continents are concerned about the rate of extinction of endangered languages. It is higher than ever before. On average a language dies every two weeks. We talk about the melting of the ice cap, the extinction of species but we hardly ever hear about the death of so many world ma languages. lan A comparison of enso dangered da species and languages show dissh tressing figures. fish species species, 8% of plants plants, 11% of birds and18% While 5% of fish of mammals have been classified in danger of extinction, over 40% of languages are doomed to disappear in the near future (D.Harrison, When Languages Die, 2007).

to take a census to find out how many speakers there are left. One of the difficulties is that last speakers of endangered languages are often elderly and it takes skills to make them focus on what is not always perceived by the elders as good intentions. Field linguists often have to live with these populations in harsh conditions and adapt to their way of life in order to record the language in action. Despite the hardships, their testimonies are often moving because they build personal relationships and their job is rewarding. The movie The Linguists (Ironbound Films), featuring Dr Harisson and his colleague Greg Anderson records their efforts to document and preserve endangered languages and enlighten the public about this admirable profession. It was an official selection at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and was acclaimed at the opening of the Unesco International Day of Mother Languages in 2008.

Should we care? Cynics don’t because they view the phenomenon as a positive simplification of the world and they dare fooling themselves with a black and white dream of a day when everyone will speak the same language, a sort of the Tower of Babel played in reverse.

Reasons for languages death can vary. To identify endangered languages, scientists use three main criteria: the number of speakers currently living, the mean age of native speakers and the percentage of the youngest generation acquiring fluency in that language. Many people assume that a language disappears simply when there are no more native speakers. That is not always true. In the case of our country Indonesia, some languages may have tens of thousands of speakers but may be endangered because children are no longer learning them. The Indonesian government, in a strong effort to unite its 13 000 islands, introduced Bahasa Indonesia and made it the official language of the country. The result is that this has created pressure to use the new national language in place of local languages. With such a strong unifying language policy and the widespread use of it for education, Bahasa Indonesia has become the dominant language. The most frequent reason for extinction is the marginalization of local languages. Here, Bahasa Indonesia is associated with chances of economic success and the pressure to assimilate is strong. Local languages are still used in the various provinces of Indonesia but the danger is that more and more of them are becoming marginalized and perceived as useless by its speakers. Furthermore, local languages can be associated with low social status and poverty, and speakers might consciously decide not to pass it on to the next generation.

Yes, we should care! The death of a language is the erosion of human knowledge. “ Most of what humans know about the world is encoded in oral languages. When we lose a language, we lose centuries of human thinking about time, seasons, sea creatures, reindeer, edible flowers, mathematics, landscapes, myths, music, the unknown and the everyday” says Harisson. The information that has been gathered throughout centuries is woven in languages and most of it just cannot be translated. The classification of species of plants and animals for example shows that local inhabitants possess a unique understanding of the world around them. Many tribes and isolated human groups have lived in harmony with nature for centuries and they understand their environment better than the best scientists of the Western world. When we hear the argument that many plants and species still haven’t been discovered, do we ask ourselves if the local tribes already know them and have given them a name? Folk knowledge is often extremely sophisticated but has not been classified or taxonomised by Western science. Indigenous people know their environment intimately and have a wealth of knowledge fields such as medicine. Nevertheless their knowledge of plants and cures is often embedded in their language. This is the “invisible problem” that most people do not realize when they hear that languages are dying out. Field linguists around the globe have embarked on a race against the clock to find the last speakers of languages on the point of extinction. Their job is to document, describe and classify their language. When there is still enough time, theyy try and understand d the vision of the world that is encapsulated in their language. To complete such missions, linguists need to be multi skilled. They need to be able to land anywhere in the world and quickly adapt to a new environment, make friends with the people, find ways of understanding them and apply their scientific knowledge to document the dying language. When they share a common language with the local inhabitants, the task is relatively easy. When there is no common language though, linguists often need years of work to obtain scientific data. Initially, they have

“We don’t even know what we are losing,” says Harisson. What we do know is that indigenous knowledge of the world will not only be lost for the local population but for the whole of humankind. Most of these languages are not written and what they know can only be found in their memory.

In Indonesia the Unesco has identified 147 languages either in danger of extinction or recently extinct. Up to this day, India has the greatest number of endangered languages (196), followed by the United States (192) and Indonesia comes third.

This is disheartening heartening news for the incredible diversity of this country. Currently, the number of living languages listed for Indonesia is 719 but this number could quickly drop in the next few years for the next generation of speakers of local languages. With the growing influence of tourism and the influx of foreigners, English becomes another threat to the Balinese language. Locals see the acquisition of English as an opportunity to secure

better jobs and have more opportunities to succeed economically. Parents want their children to speak English and see this possibility as an added value to the family group. If the new generation can obtain better jobs by speaking English, the whole family will benefit from this achievement. Currently Bahasa Indonesia and English are putting pressure on Balinese language and it will most probably be losing ground in the future. It is interesting g to note what happens ens with children of es. mixed marriages. The majority of ak them do not speak nBalinese. Many unederstand it bee cause they have m picked it up from e the Balinese side of the family. Most cannot speak well, read or write because many Balinese parents do not use it to converse or educate their mes it is because the other parent doesn’t children. Sometimes understand it or often they simply value English or Bahasa Indonesia more than the local language. Some parents even say that their children do not need to speak Balinese. For these families, Balinese will be lost in only one or two generations. The national language and English are perceived as more prestigious and more modern so Balinese becomes the victim of a bilingual culture. Linguists do not only document endangered languages. In some cases they try to revitalize them. In the case of Indonesia, the main obstacle is financial. It costs money to carry out research and gather accurate documentation. Unfortunately this country has already lost some of its languages, however it is not too late to save others from extinction. The autonomy of the provinces is an asset and each region needs to review its educational policies and develop programs and policies to raise the awareness of the importance of local languages. Literacy programs are essential for language survival and budgets have to be allocated for the development of resources and the training of teachers. Some say that the death of languages is the unavoidable co consequence of globalization. Diversity is being lost in many areas and the trend seems to be towards u cation. However, being aware of the invisible unifi pr problem of the loss of folk knowledge is a step forwa ward. Language policies are not just documents that are filed and forgotten. They are powerful weapons tow towards language survival or language death. Langua is power and the loss of a language can be the guage loss of the rights of its people. All languages are intricate systems allowing their speakers to function day da It is a tool to forge their identity, express their to day. wisdo refine their knowledge of the world and dream. wisdom, Langu Languages are a way of thinking and it holds the hiso people. Like DNA, it carries the information of tory of w are. Value your language; it is the depositary of who we your culture.

JOHNNY - +62(0)81338 065 056 C/G/G - 16 Dec. 09

by Dr. Rob People et cetera Sculpture by Adi Bachmann At Arma Museum and Resort, Ubud. Tel: 081558644014 Adi Bachmann was educated as a typographer and graphic designer. He worked in Germany as a designer of book jackets and book covers. After re-establishing himself in Ubud, as a gallery proprietor, Adi feels that his education and professional background classifies him as a designer, and not as a ‘fine’ artist. In his paintings, Adi makes much use of famous western contemporary art images, but, his art has been criticized for creating pieces which look like trade marks, brand names, and logos. In his opinion, art is a form of communication, and, with his logos and symbols, he tries to communicate. However, with his sculpture, Adi successfully presents an entirely different approach to his work. In his sculpture exhibition, ‘People et cetera’, Adi provides a lot of ironic, thoughtful, and witty ideas. An attitude of playfulness and creativity illuminates many of his pieces. In the picturesque grounds of the ARMA Museum and Resort in Ubud, Adi has placed more than 60 of his ‘Pop’ art inspired The Global Warming Conference 2020 in Ubud, Bali sculptures. The buildings and parks at the ARMA have been carefully designed and realized by Mr. Agung Rai, in a traditional way to conserve the Balinese style and ways of life. The ARMA complex is based on the notion of a holistic ambience, and it expresses a deep love for Balinese art, Balinese crafts, and also for modern art. The result is an outstanding environment, which is divided into many different charming venues. The sculptures that Agung Rai and Adi Bachmann placed in this harmonious ensemble of landscape, park, garden, and architecture, are individual in terms of ideas and shapes. They are made mainly from cement, and all of them are painted in bright and intense colors. While wandering through the park you will discover Adi’s sculptures in front of a pond, or near the small Sakah River which flows through the area. Sculptures can pop up beside a pool, between bushes, and behind some beautiful old trees. Intimate bales and romantic pathways make ideal settings for Adi’s surprisingly varied works. Throughout the over 60 pieces Adi tackles a wide range of subject matter. Some of the more prominent pieces include ‘The Global Warming Conference 2020 in Ubud, Bali’. Global Warming is an issue Adi feels most strongly about, and, in this piece, Adi presents an ironic comment on a possible conference in Ubud, in Bali, in the year 2020. Evoking the image of the Christian Last Supper, which has inspired many artists over the years, thirteen life size figures represent the history of the known human civilization. The figures are placed around a huge conference table. Instead of Jesus Christ, the figure of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha dominates the scene. The sculpture symbolizes many different cultures and times, coming together to confront, and, hopefully, resolve the Global Warming catastrophe.

A lot of intriguing shapes are brought together in the odd looking installation ‘The Artist’s Nightmare’. Through a range of realistic and fantasy figures Adi makes some pertinent political points on subjects as varied as Bali’s water, The Artist’s Nightmare waste, traffic, and pollution problems. Adi successfully uses humor to deliver his messages. Continuing with humor, Adi also presents an amusing ‘Bali Zoo’. Three animals from a fairy story, a Sneaking Lion, a Dog without a Wig, and a Bold Pegasus, strut across the landscape in a friendly, imaginative, and non-violent manner. On a serious note, the work ‘As Time Goes By’ shows a large ball resting on the peak of a pyramid. Bali Zoo For Adi, this is a serious abstract piece which represents the stress and discomforts which start when we make our way into this world, and accompanies us on all our steps in life. Adi is suggesting that we all look for safety, security, peace, love, and freedom, but, achieving these goals can often require a delicate balancing act, and, can often result in not what we actually want. While continuing your Adventures in Adi’s Wonderland, you will encounter many surprises. ‘Dancing Snakes’ abound. A reclining Buddha is surrounded by two life-sized King Penguins. Three women, in the style of Cycladic idols, ask each other, ‘Shall we go for a Swim, Ladies’? You can also see an impressive interpretation of the well known phrase ‘Everyone wants to get up. But not every As Time Goes By one succeeds’. In addition, the arrangement ‘The Male and the Female Principle’ will give you an idea of the artist’s opinion about men and women. Adi likes to utilize signs and symbols to present concise messages full of action, liveliness, and impact. By taking your time to stroll around the ARMA Museum and Resort, you will be delighted to discover and enjoy, Adi Bachmann’s occasionally serious, but, always witty, surprising colorful sculptures and sculpture arrangements.

Goa Gajah, Peliatan, Ubud Tel: 081338777017 The Bledog Art Space has launched itself with an eclectic mix of artists, exhibiting an eclectic mix of media, in a show entitled ‘Open Space’.

Pathways to Healing the Body, Mind & Spirit By Michele Cempaka

Holistic Living for a Better Life More and more people are coming to the realization that their lifestyle isn’t creating the peace of mind and happiness that they truly desire. The fast pace in today’s world, long hours spent commuting to and from work, unhealthy diet and continued pressure that so many people are experiencing in their daily lives has led to a dramatic increase in health problems. Obesity is on the rise worldwide, as is diabetes, cancer and a variety of mental illnesses which could be avoided all together if we chose to live more holistically. What does this mean and how does one actually make the shifts required to do so? Here are three things that you can do to experience a whole new way of being. Meditate Spend time every morning right after you wake up doing some centering, grounding and meditation. Just like our body which becomes revitalized during sleep, our mind also needs a break. Even in our sleep, our mind is often still somewhat active with dreams and other subconscious thoughts that we may not remember upon awaking, but are still with us. When we empty our minds, we are in a sense, taking out the garbage and leaving it on the side of the road. Meditation doesn’t have to be difficult; it’s really just about paying attention to our breath. We can do this in many ways, but one of the easiest ways I’ve found is to bring the breath down into your belly and blowing it up like a balloon as you inhale, then deflate the balloon as you exhale, sucking your stomach back in. Take long, slow breaths like this and before you know it you’ll feel centered and totally relaxed. Then the next step is to ground yourself. If you are standing, imagine that you’re like a tree with roots which are coming out of your feet and entering the earth going deep until you reach the core. If you’re stilling in a chair or cross legged on the floor, visualize a cord or rope coming down from the base of your spine and going deep into the earth. Once you connect with the earth’s core, and then imagine that this energy is rising up and entering you, giving you strength and harmonizing your whole body.

us feel good and even slow down our ageing process. Nonliving foods such as meat, food made with refined white flour, sugar, processed foods like ice cream, potato chips and cookies can actually contribute to serious illnesses like cancer, diabetes, digestive problems, etc. The next time you reach for that candy bar, ask yourself whether it will really benefit your body. Instead, why not make the choice to have food that will truly nourish you in body, mind and spirit. Exercise Okay, I know you’re thinking: “I don’t have enough time to exercise” or “I hate to exercise!” Once again, it’s all about shifting your perceptions about keeping fit. There are a plethora of choices available to us which means we can have fun while getting into shape. I personally get a great deal of pleasure out of doing Tai Chi, Yoga or Chi’ Gong, which are all mind, body and spirit exercises, but I also enjoy going to the gym and lifting weights. The key is to have variety in your exercise program so that you don’t get bored. Also, when we exercise those endorphins and serotonin levels are increasing, giving us those good feelings and a sense of well being. When we feel fit, we can accomplish so much more, because we have the energy to do whatever we want to do! Thus, it actually makes us more productive in our daily lives, which is another great reason why we should find the time to exercise every day.

When we make the commitment to honor ourselves, we will begin to experience how respect is reflected back to us in our daily lives. Holistic living is all about choosing to live a conscious life in which we are connected to the earth and to the healing energy that always surrounds us. Every step we take towards this goal will ultimately bring us into greater alignment. For questions or comments about this article, please email: Copyright Michele Cempaka ©2010

Eat right We’ve all heard of the saying: ‘You are what you eat’. Take this to heart and become more aware of the food that you are choosing to feed yourself. Food can be classified into two categories: Living and non-living. Our diet can have a profound effect on our moods, physical condition and ageing process. It has been scientifically proven that living foods such as salads, fresh vegetables, fruit, and nuts can boost our immune system, release natural serotonins which make

TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

Indonesia in the Soeharto Years

That’s what Indonesia in the Soeharto Years has achieved for the Suharto term of office, but instead of chronicling just a few years this book records a 32 year long authoritarian regime in the pressure cooker political and social climate of Southeast Asia’s most populous and volatile nation. During much of Suharto’s years as president (1967-1998), Indonesia was seen as a successful test case in Third World development, a once wayward pariah turned into a shining example of modern economic planning and democracy. Suharto’s New Order government won awards from the United Nations for the country’s advances in family planning. The nation’s massive development projects earned the praise of the World Bank and international financiers. In fact, behind the New Order’s benign facade was an intricate web of nepotism, corruption, and a persistent and wide-ranging repression of civil liberties, the full scope of which is only now just beginning to come to light. Indonesia in the Soeharto Years delves into many of the issues and events that shaped the nation, from the grim years of 1964 and 1966, up until the Indonesia’s first direct election for the president in 2004. The volume traces not only the course of Suharto’s reign but also the social history of the Indonesian people during this formative period during which the nation learned to define itself in the modern world. The book resurrects a great many now obscure incidences that were nevertheless turning points of that era. Do you remember the Sawito Affair? The Petition of 50? The Wolya Hijacking? The Lampung Incident? The shameful Gedung Ombo Project? The Warship Affair? The murders of Udin and Marsinah? The destructive riot that erupted when the prayers of a group of young Muslims disturbed the sleep of an old Chinese woman in Rengasdengklok in West Java in January of 1997? Did you know that the special province of Aceh in far northern Sumatra was on its way to achieving full independence from Indonesia after Suharto’s fall? More than one million people rallied in the provincial capital of Banda Aceh in November 1999 to demand a referendum on self-determination. Sidney Jones, an analyst of Islam and human rights, gives a blow-by-blow account of what followed this grass roots independence movement. Riveting photographs by the nation’s top photojournalists of the period as well as short essays by Indonesian and Western economists, government leaders, journalists, activists, and scholars provide unique insights into the politics, culture, and history of Indonesia under three decades of militaristic bureaucracy. Many of the contributors were major government opposition figures, eyewitnesses to or actual players in the events taking place. The so-called vote for integration with Indonesia in West Papua and the Free Papua Movement are lucidly described by J. R. G. Djopari, the former deputy governor of Irian Jaya,

who witnessed firsthand the depredations carried out upon the Papuan people by Indonesian troops during visits to the countryside he made with his father who was the District Officer of Manokwari. A succinct 3-page history of East Timor from 1974 to 1998 relates the events leading up the territory’s annexation by Indonesia. The horrendous Dili Massacre is seen through a dozen captured stills from video footage taken of the shooting deaths of 273 harmless demonstrators (the government claimed only 19 died). Not all is doom and gloom. As Goenawan Mohammed, the founder of Tempo magazine, writes in the preface, “This book is not only about greed and repression… Suharto’s New Order, like Sukarno’s regime before it, also helped forge a new nation.” Well-intentioned and successful programs, like the family planning campaign commented on Kartono Mohamad, helped Indonesia cope with a skyrocketing population. Suharto also fostered better ties with neighboring countries and many New Order business and investment policies spurred years of unprecedented economic growth. Hundreds of photos show Suharto, the Father of Development, relaxing at the firing range, riding on a pushbike with his children, giving speeches, participating in talk shows and interviews, officiating at opening ceremonies, attending cabinet meetings, touring exhibitions, visiting transmigration settlements, traveling abroad, posing with heads of states and IMF and APEC officials, and finally reading his letter of resignation on national TV on May 21st, 1998. The book’s extraordinary images amplify the text and give the events infinitely more impact. Divided into 9 chapters, 140 short essays and informative extended captions support the work of 125 photographers comprising 80 photographic series and 500 historical photographs. The gargantuan task of organizing, editing and obtaining publishing rights for so many images staggers the mind.

The photos don’t hold anything back. On public display are photos of the decapitated heads of communist bosses and Madurese transmigration settlers in Kalimantan. A grainy black and white photo of a group of forlorn PKI members and sympathizers herded into a field in Solo is chilling when you think of the violent fate that most likely befell them. This ambitious, highly readable large format book of remarkable scope is a publishing milestone. Produced by hundreds of individuals and organizations working from thousands of photographs, Indonesia in the Suharto Years is the first comprehensive pictorial look at contemporary Indonesian history that will keep the people’s historical memory of this era preserved in perpetuity.

Say What? C/E/G-14 July 10

Question: I have an ex boyfriend, who I cannot figure out. We broke up a year ago and are on different continents at present. A couple of months ago, I visited him in his country, and he was very attentive to me, always stepping up whenever I needed something. He asked if I thought we could work things out, and if there was any chance that I still loved him. I told him that I honestly didn’t still love him as much as I had before even though I still care deeply about him. (The truth is, I still have very strong feelings for him, but I’m afraid to let myself go all the way -- just in case things don’t work out.) Then he asked what it would take for me to love him again because he recognizes that he wants to be with me in spite of anything else going on for him. Eventually we decided to be good friends, to take it one day at a time, and to work things out. I have been back in Southeast Asia for 3 months now, and he has been wonderful. He texts me almost daily, we talk on the phone often, and we are very supportive of each other. He is working on relocating to Bali. (Admittedly I do not think this is because of me. He has always wanted to live here.) Now, 2 days ago, he told me how he’d heard that most of our mutual friends were married or having babies, and that he is worried that I may be wishing to settle down. He says he may not be ready for that for another couple of years or more because he has issues to take care of first in order to become more financially independent. Personally, I am not ready to settle down and probably won’t be for another 2 or 3 years. He did ask, “When do you think you’ll get married?” but I thought we were getting sidetracked, and I didn’t answer. Now I am confused. I do intend to eventually get married, and I can see myself married to him one day. We complement each other well. Is he afraid to ask me to make a commitment and wait for him, or is he waiting for me to say that I am willing to do that? I need an opinion on this. Dr. ZZ: I don’t see that your boyfriend is the confusing aspect as much as I hear you giving him mixed signals. To imagine yourself eventually married to him while you tell him that you don’t still love him is like arriving at a movie theatre when you want to be shopping for groceries. Something is “off” in this picture, and it most likely has to do with your own fear of appearing vulnerable. He is not afraid to ask you for exactly what works for him. In that respect, he is being quite open and honest with each step. The one who is confusing matters is you. You need to come clean

with your feelings and level the playing field. Then the two of you will not have such difficulty figuring out what to do next. Once you resolve the confusion that lies within yourself and bring that expression into the light, you are apt to see that your ex is not the hurdle at all. “Ask for 100% of what you want 100% of the time. Be prepared to hear know, and negotiate the difference.” Question: I am a writer, and I was very excited about the project I am working on now. I was working on a story about a kid getting adopted, but I am not very sure about it now. You see, I had totally forgot about a friend of mine (who I don’t see often anymore, but we are still good friends), who gave her newborn up years ago for adoption. The story has nothing to do with her at all although I was thinking that a story like that about adoption might bother her and make her feel sad. It may make her think about her situation. The reason I forgot about her giving up this baby is because it was a hush-hush thing, and I never told a soul. My story is about a child getting adopted -- something I always wanted to do and may actually do in the future. Should I not write this, or forget about it because it will hurt her? Remember, the story has nothing to do with her at all, but it may make her sad. That is my concern. I hate to forget about my story because I love it so much. At the same time, I don’t want to hurt her. What would be the right thing to do? I wish I would have remembered her situation before I started writing, but I just wasn’t thinking. Now the project is so near completion that it is too exciting to want to forget about. What would be the right thing to do?

C/E/G-24 Feb. 10

Dr. ZZ: Chances are this question is more about you than it is about your friend. You cannot live your life – especially as a writer -- in fear that your well-intended words may hurt someone. No one removed the word adoption from the dictionary when your friend gave her baby up. The subject is fair game, and chances are it has probably come up in her presence before. From what you say, you’re not writing the story to hurt anyone. My suggestion is that you follow your feelings and write the story. Like you said, “It is too exciting to want to forget about.”

Bali Skeptic By Lee Roy LeRoi

Monkey, Get Off’a My Back! “Tobacco is a dirty weed, I like it. It satisfies no normal need, I like it. It makes you thin, it makes you lean, it takes the hair right off your bean. It’s the worst darn stuff I’ve ever seen. I like it.” -- Graham Lee Hemminger, November 1915 This is a dangerous undertaking. Whenever I have written to blow my horn about beating an addiction, there is something in the act that triggers a relapse. Way back in March of 2007 when I wrote for the first time about quitting the cigarette habit for a year … a week later I was out celebrating the come-clean anniversary with a pack of smokes in a Jalan Jaksa pub in Jakarta. After that little celebratory display of fuming (improbably and embarrassingly witnessed by somebody who had read my column crowing about beating tobacco), I lasted another 16 weeks before the stresses of a new job in Bangkok drove me back into the arms of the demon weed on a more than temporary basis. And for the next couple of years, I was an on and off smoker, mostly on, but never (or seldom) puffing on more than a few sticks a day. Better than before, but still enough to kill me. Now I have been on the no-ciggie kick for another year – just shy of a couple of weeks at current writing – and tempting fate again by bleating about it. Strangely, at times during the past few weeks as we approach the yearmarking date of Aug. 5, it has been more difficult to stick with the no-smoke regimen than it was in the first few weeks of going without last year – and then I was in another high-stress job that had many people in the newsroom out in the car park for a few puffs every hour. If I can quit then, surrounded by all that peer encouragement, why should it be so difficult now, when I’m working out of the rice fields and mostly setting my own schedule? I do not know, but it is clear that it is a strong and evil habit to break. And most smokers know they should quit even if they won’t admit it to anyone. Feel only pity for them as they slink into the choking air of the smoking booths at airports … and, feel anger, too, for the smokers in Indonesia who cannot find the courteous will not to smoke in restaurants, malls and other public places. But remember that they are ill and getting sicker all the time. By now, many of the increased health risks that I incurred during a 25-year habit have significantly dropped back

toward those of non-smoker. My risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker, for instance, and I no longer suffer from easy shortness of breath. Exercise activities – riding my bike down to Ubud and back or even longer rides on the circuits around town – are fights against muscle endurance and creaking joints and not gasping, wheezing struggles for oxygen. As another quitter, English humorist A.P. Herbert, put it: “Thank heaven, I have given up smoking again! ... God! I feel fit. Homicidal, but fit. A different man. Irritable, moody, depressed, rude, nervy, perhaps; but the lungs are fine.” Also, by now, the increased oxygen that has been making it to my lungs for the past year has helped to repair dry skin and heal premature wrinkles. Stains on fingers and teeth are gone, and should the missus and I decide to try for yet a third child, my little swimmers and skimmers are healthier and more abundant. Of course, it’s a bit long now for me to still blame any of my natural moody irritableness on having quit smoking; I still do have the odd cravings that hit me sometime – sometimes but not always during moments of stress. Sometimes I would just like to retreat to the balcony for a light-up and a long, slow drag over a cup of coffee or while sipping an ice-cold beer.

That would really be a pleasure, I think, but giving in only crosses my mind for a moment, and then I remember some friends exiting Ngurah Rai after a long air journey from London. Before reaching us as they pushed their trolley forward they were already digging out their cigarettes and pulling off nicotine patches, several each. And I recall my own many times of running out of smokes in the middle of the night and hunting through ashtrays and trash cans for butts long enough to smoke. (Bathroom graffiti: “Please don’t throw your cigarette butts in the urinal. It makes them soggy and hard to light.”) Nicotine, old cursed friend and tormentor, this time, I hope and pray, I’ve got you licked.

Update Rio is one of Bali’s more unusual restaurants with Finnish management and chef and specializing in Churrascaria, the Brazilian method of cooking marinated fish and meats in a flame. Almost hidden down a narrow lane beside Animale in Raya Legian, Seminyak it is on the site of the old Veranda, for many years Bali’s popular Swedish restaurant. Churrascaria takes BBQ to an art form. At Rio it is served in free flow form for a minimum of two persons and can include chorizo sausage, pork fillet, bacon-rolled chicken breast sirloin or tenderloin steaks and lamb and beef cevapicci [meat croquettes, a stalwart from the old Yugoslavia]. However there are many other strings to their bow with a small but enticing menu. Seafood Grill options include Mahi-Mahi, Red Snapper, Tuna and Tiger Prawns. Tiger Prawns also feature in their pasta special Tagliatelle Ocean, pasta studded with tiger prawns and tossed with a lobster sauce [pictured]. The Tuna Tataki consists of fresh pepper grilled tuna, rucola, melon, sundried tomato, balsamico & olive oil. For dessert chef’s Chocolate Orgasm is a show-stopper!

King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Resort, Nusa Dua, now does an Afternoon Tea every day at 3.00. This follows in the tradition of the original St. Regis in New York. French Patissier Vincent Stopin produces an amazing range of hot and cold nibbles to tantalize. The Lobster Pies are crusted in thin pastry browned to a crisp, sensational! A Terrine of Marbled Foie Gras, Scones with clotted cream and your choice of jams from the kitchen, Finger Sandwiches topped with fresh juicy prawns and other things. There are also many chocolate options, all made using the Swiss Valrhona. A Tea Master offers you from a range of exotic teas whilst the pianist plays softly on the grand piano in the background. For a pre afternoon drink try their wonderfully refreshing Strawberry Punch, a mix of white wine and white rum served in a glass half full of fresh strawberries, the only drink I have ever drunk with a spoon! Starbucks are about to invade Ubud! That has been the rumour for some time now. There was even talk of a local ‘protest movement’? The fact is that the rumour has now been confirmed and it is true. Starbucks will be located next to Café Lotus and even on banjar land, so someone thinks it is a good idea. A recent advertisement [full page colour on the back cover of Now Bali] lists a Bali Starbucks at Lotus Pond, Raya Ubud, Ubud. Confused I think? Lotus Pond is in Sanur. Someone in Jakarta is very confused!

Warisan has now opened where once stood Café Warisan, but bearing no resemblance to the rice paddy bound garden café that opened back in the early 90’s. Café Warisan soon became everybody’s favourite restaurant in Bali. Warisan is now operated by the owner of Warisan furniture whose property it is, the chef is French Belgian, the food classic French! Lio BBQ has opened on the old site of Jenny’s Waroeng, on Raya Petitenget almost at the corner with Raya Kerobokan, completely renovated with a street-side grill and an open frontage. It expands both the Christos empire and the Lio presence at what he has now called Lio Square [even the corner police box has been re-named!]. The fare is inclusive of anything than can be grilled over flame. Steaks can be Tenderloin, Sirloin or Minced, the Chops Pork or Lamb, Sausages, Pork, Chicken or Beef, the Fish Mahi-Mahi or Tuna, and baby back Pork Ribs. Sauces can be black pepper, red wine, mushroom or BBQ. Side dishes include Baked Potato stuffed with bacon and cheese, Grilled Corn with herb butter and Grilled Pleurotous Mushrooms. Lotus Garden is on The ByPass at the entrance to Nusa Dua. It has always been

an attractive location with its small private bales scattered amongst the lotus ponds. It has two new additions, a pleasant air-conditioned inside dining area and a young dynamic Italian Chef, Marco Bertini. In past years this restaurant dabbled with a ‘Chinese’ style of cuisine but has now reverted to pure Italian with a few mandatory Indonesian dishes. One of the Chef Marco’s specials is a Risotto with porcini mushroom and Italian sausage, flavoured with rosemary. Pastas include Spaghetti allo Scoglio with clams, squid and shrimp in a fish sauce and an unusual shaped hand made pasta, Maltagliati, in a shrimp and tomato sauce. Zuppa di Pesce Imperiale really is a soup fit for a king! This complex seafood soup is studded with lobster, crab, prawns, scampi, squid, clams and red snapper. Mains include a Grigliata di Pesce [monster plate of grilled seafood; lobster, prawns, scampi, tuna, salmon and squid] and a Filetto al Funghi Porcini [tenderloin of beef with porcini mushrooms]. This chef appointment could mean that Lotus are reverting to their successful practice of the 90’s of installing quality International chefs at each individual location.

Antique, Jln. Dhyana Pura, Seminyak has gone through a major renovation and has

now re-opened, now with a larger bar downstairs and main dining area upstairs. Having survived for more than 10 years this restaurant with its nice mix of local and international dishes has already proved its worth and popularity on Bali’s Drink Street [or Gay Street as some call it?]. Antique is sandwiched between two of the currently most popular ‘now’ bars in the street but that honour seems to change as often as the weather.

Menu is Bali’s latest restaurant with an Australian connection. It is small location on

the lower part of Jln. Dhyana Pura, with a neat, clean look about it. Menu is only a few months old but already very popular with its simple cuisine, comfort food that the guests can recognise. The Vegetarian Spring Rolls are Singapore style, with a sweet and sour dip. The Leek Cream Soup has sauteed onion, basil oil and garlic added, swimming on top is a seared king prawn. Their Burger is a monster! The meat pattie is on lettuce and tomato, topped with cheese, bacon, gherkin and mustard, and a fried egg with mushroom sauce. Served on a sesame seed bun, of course! The Mahi-Mahi Fish and Chips are deep fried in a real black beer batter and that popular Bali special, Chicken Cordon Bleu is a bit different from the rest being stuffed with gammon ham and mozzarella cheese.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

A New Blossom! Blossom restaurant at the Sentosa Private Villas complex, in the midst of Kerobokan, is in its 4th year, and now with its 3rd Executive Chef, American William Collier. The cuisine at Blossom with opening chef Will Meyrick was predominately Thai, subsequently with Chris Patzold at the helm it became a twin menu operation, general Asian and his unique style of Mod Oz. Respect to the two previous chefs is shown by the retention of a couple of their signature dishes on the current menu as they are now considered to be Blossom Standards. Bill Collier’s experience is built on his years in some of the best French kitchens in New York and California. Add to this his more recent Asian discovery tour with local spices during his 7 years in Bali and his trend now towards fresh Italian flavours, results in the new style of Cuisine Collier. Lunch begins with Chilled Octopus & Calamari in a green tomato salad with sweet chilli vinaigrette. Such a simple description does not do it justice. The octopus is marinated, steamed and then ice-smoked. The young squids are prepared using Japanese techniques being cooked in young coconut water. Thin discs of octopus, carpaccio style, are at the base, small curls of so-tender squid on top then a tangy salad of green tomatoes drizzled with a nam jihm vinaigrette. Such a fresh, clean taste! It is a perfect lunch starter. The Caesar has a poached egg and dry-cured bacon, the Smoked Salmon is with watermelon, apple and a mint & avocado sorbet, the Club is with lobster, crisp pancetta and egg frittata. A Salumi tasting consists of chef’s selection of dried and cured meats with pickles and bread. A Lamb Wrap may not sound very exciting, how wrong can you be? Meat from the shoulder has been prepared ‘sous vide’ in yoghurt, then combined with capsicum, feta and olives in a paper thin crisp wrap, preserved lemon and yoghurt for dipping. You can almost smell the Aegean! Luncheon mains include John Dory and fat chips, lime-chilli tartar. The Veal Leg is amazing! The meat has been seasoned and prepared ‘sous vide’ but this time with sherry vinegar, a long slow cooking method that preserves the taste. The skin is removed and ground with spices. The meat is crusted with pepper-chilli salt and sliced, the centres a perfect pink. The pairings [meat and skin] are topped with a baby potato vinegar salad. One of the Pastas is Ravioli, small round parcels amply stuffed with prawn meat and spices topped with a crema reminiscent of a super rich lobster bisque, flavours of cognac and all. Whilst these dishes use a vast number of different spices and herbs the overall taste is a gentle one, no blasts of extreme. The dinner menu still retains a few old favourites from previous menus; a Prawn and Coconut Betel Leaf, Freshly Shucked

Oysters with a red nam jihm sorbet or tempura and salmon eggs, Seared Scallop with crispy duck, lime leaf, coconut and Thai basil and the Thai Crab Cakes [my favourite, tod mun poo] is with a chilli and tamarillo dip. The cross culture dishes begin with a Suckling Pig Tortellini, green onion puree, crackling and palm sugar. A western Wagyu Beef Salad is tossed with papaya, coriander and crushed peanuts. Grilled Lobster [babies from Lombok] is with mango, miso and mandarin salt. Coriander Cured Salmon is served in a toasted croissant with crème fraiche and ceviche vinaigrette. The mind boggling taste combinations remind me of dining in the early years at Tetsuya’s in Sydney before he became world famous. It required long studying of the menu trying to imagine what ‘this with that’ would taste like, before ordering, but there then as here now never disappointed. There is an easy option in selecting your entrees at Blossom as they now have an Asian Tasting Plate and a Global Tasting Plate, each with a balance of contrasting flavours. The dinner menu has considerable seafood content. The Seared Tuna is Szechuan style with roasted corn, crab mayonnaise and shaved fennel. John Dory and White Shiro Miso is combined with poached red prawn, kaffir lime and garlic chives. The Barramundi is steamed and served with beetroot and chickpea envelopes, orange and pea shoots. The Oricchiette [ear-shaped pasta] is hand made in the kitchen and served with spicy lobster sausage, melted leeks, tomato and truffle. Even the Risotto goes the seafood way with crab legs, chilli oil and grana-palma sugar.

The meat dishes are also Pan Asian. Chicken Ponggari is in a Thai coconut cream curry, Chinese style Roasted Duck is with rice cakes, black garlic and red soy bean, Lamb Shank is a yellow curry with apple and the Pork Hock & Belly is in a tamarind-tamarillo sauce with lime. Roast Lamb and Black Angus Tenderloin completes the meat lover’s menu section. However The Chef’s Degustation is a great choice for first timers and those who want a dinner of contrasting tastes, 7 mini courses for $60, much less than the cost of a main at any equal quality restaurant in the major cities of the world. Just dropping in for a mid-afternoon or late night drink at the bar? Blossom’s Tapas are the way to go. Arrancini [rice balls from Sicily], Melon draped with Pancetta, Garlic Prawns and a Crumbed Brie with cranberry jam are amongst the options. Blossom was selected as our Best New Fine Dining restaurant of 2007. At that stage you would not have wanted it to ever change. It has and the new Blossom is well worth re-discovering.

Local News Terrorists Still Lurking in Indonesia, Police Warn Despite police successes against terrorist networks, lessons learned over the 12 months since the July 17 twin hotel bombings in Jakarta show that the shadowy terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah has the capacity to keep on regenerating, according to a top counterterrorism official. Brig. Gen. Tito Karnavian, head of the National Police’s counterterrorism unit, says the group, also known as JI, appears to be never short of followers, despite having been the target of nationwide manhunts since the 2002 Bali bombings, and has adapted by changing its attack strategy. “We have learned that JI has survived and started a new cell,” Tito said. “Noordin M Top was capable of setting a well-planned attack. The bombings also revealed a role played by the Al-Ghuroba cell.”

JAT’s Jakarta headquarters was raided by police in May and several members were charged with funding a paramilitary training camp uncovered in Aceh in February. Tito also said that police learned that terrorists were expanding their scope from Western targets to “nearby enemies.” “What I mean by nearby enemies are the Indonesian government, Indonesian Military and National Police, which they regard as representatives of a secular regime and supporters of Western democracy,” he said. “They were also preparing a series of attacks, instead of a single attack in one year. In addition to the July 17 bombings, they were preparing a car-bomb attack on the president,” Tito said, adding the plot against the president was uncovered after a raid in Jati Asih, Bekasi, several weeks after the hotel bombings.

Al-Ghuroba is a group comprising Indonesian students who have studied at fundamentalist schools in Pakistan. Its key members include Abdul Rohim, the son of influential cleric Abu Bakar Bashir; Muhammad Jibriel, the son of radical preacher Abu Jibriel; and Gun-Gun Rusman Gunawan, the younger brother of Hambali, who is being detained by US authorities on terror charges.

Although trials are under way for most of the bombing suspects, Tito said three more suspects arrested in Medan in April were still to be prosecuted. Sources at the police have said the three Medan suspects are Deni Suramto, who allegedly bought the explosives for the hotel attacks; Bayu Sena, the suspected bomb maker; and Pandu Wicaksono.

In a recent report, the International Crisis Group, a global security watchdog, identified followers of the Bashir-led Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid as a key challenge for Indonesian law enforcers.

Tito said other key militants were also being sought. “Among them is Mustofa, alias Abu Tholut. He is the most senior member we know after the Aceh terrorist network was uncovered,” he said.

“The far bigger challenge for Indonesia is to manage the aspirations of the thousands who join JAT rallies for its public message: That democracy is antithetical to Islam, that only an Islamic state can uphold the faith and that Islamic law must be the source of all justice,” the ICG said.

Mustofa was arrested in Semarang for illegal possession of firearms in July 2003. He was sentenced to seven years in jail but walked free under a conditional release in March 2009 “The road before us is still long and they will continue to regenerate,” Tito said. (July 17th 2010)

Indonesian Government Puts Cap on Electricity Rate Hike The government on Monday (19/7) vowed to cap an electricity rate increase for industrial users at 18 percent. Hata Rajasa, the coordinating minister for the economy, said most industries would see an increase of between 12 percent and 15 percent, as outlined when the rate hike was passed last month. “Only a small number will see a price hike that reaches 18 percent,” the coordinating minister said at the State Palace. Meanwhile, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said the rate hike was an unavoidable “bitter option,” and warned companies not to take advantage of the situation by introducing excessive price increases on goods and services for consumers. He said the rate hike was not too severe for companies, and that the government had already considered its impact on production costs. “It is morally unacceptable for companies to take advantage of the situation by doubling [prices] despite the fact that the actual increase is relatively small,” Yudhoyono said. He said he had instructed Hatta to ensure the rate increase by PLN would not make the public suffer. “I will not be reluctant in warning those who heartlessly increase the cost of production, goods or services more than the proper rate,” he said. Sofyan Wanandi, chairman of the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo), said an estimated 60 business associations had agreed to delay any price increases or layoffs as a result of the rate bump until the situation was clarified, or until Aug. 1, when they were scheduled to receive their power bills. Erwin Aksa, chairman of the Indonesian Young Entrepreneurs Association, said on Monday that the association’s members could accept a cap of 18 percent. Erwin, president director of cement producer Bosowa Production, said the electricity rate for the cement industry had soared by 40 percent, and if unchanged would lead to a price increase of up to 15 percent. “Electricity costs account for roughly 25 percent of production cost,” he said.

last month approved an Energy Ministry decree enabling state utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara to raise rates. The rate hike was intended to enable PLN, which has been forced to sell electricity at below costs for years, to raise revenue and invest in the nation’s ailing power infrastructure. The government electricity subsidy was Rp. 56 trillion ($6.2 billion) last year alone. However, the government promised a rate hike of between 6 percent and 15 percent for industrial users, and was later forced to acknowledge that some rates had climbed by 40 percent, while some industries claimed their rates soared by 80 percent or had even doubled. The government blamed “extra variable fees” for the discrepancy. These fees impose additional charges for large industries during peak usage hours and for those that exceed average consumption levels. Effendi Simbolon, an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) lawmaker and deputy chairman of House of Representatives Commission VII, which deals with energy affairs, said the commission would support a cap at 18 percent if businesses agreed. He also urged the government to issue a presidential decree to enact the rate hike, instead of the existing Energy Ministry decree. He said a presidential decree was needed because any rate hike must supersede a presidential decree establishing the existing rates, and a ministerial decree could not do that legally. “The ministerial decree can be considered illegal as the [existing] presidential decree is superior to the ministerial decree. A ministerial decree can’t cancel out a presidential decree,” he said. “If PLN insists on using the ministerial decree to calculate monthly power rates, the rates can be considered illegal and an act of corruption.” (July 17th 2010)

Dengue Fever Statistics Jump Dramatically in Bali The number of patients with dengue fever or dengue hemorrhagic fever that have been reported in the Badung district of Southern Bali have jumped dramatically compared to 2009 statistics. According to a spokesman from the Department of Health Gede Putra Suteja, the number of reported cases is 1,675 so far this year, and yet in 2009 there were only 1,400 reported cases for the entire year. According to Suteja, the reason for the drastic increase in cases could be that the 5 year epidemic cycle of dengue fever has occurred in the 2010 season, and that unusual rainfall has contributed to the increase in mosquito population. (July 15th 2010) Nike World Cup Jerseys - Garment Factory Workers in Jakarta see Red Garment workers in a garment factory near the capital Jakarta making the Dutch, English and Australian replica shirts and the Australia team jersey only earn around $5 a day and labor activists are pushing for that to be doubled. Nike has contracted production of some of its World Cup jerseys out to Jakarta garment manufacturer PT Tuntex, where factory workers earn the basic wage of Rp. 1.1 million ($121.5) a month. “That’s not enough to live in Jakarta so almost all the workers send their children home to live in the village with relatives,” said Alif Imam, an activist with the NGO Educating for Justice. “They work eight to nine hours a day, six days a week. We think Nike should give the workers 2.5 million rupiah per month.” A spokeswoman for PT Tuntex, Sri Wijiastuti, said it followed the law and paid workers the local minimum wage. In a statement emailed to Reuters, Nike said it was committed to working with factories that provide a fair environment. “Nike believes that local wage setting is best done by negotiations between workers, labor representatives, the employer and the government,” the statement said. Inflation is picking up in Asia and manufacturers looking to invest in Southeast Asia’s biggest economy will be watching closely for any signs that wages may be on the rise. The country is looking to boost foreign investment to grow the economy. Textile workers in Bangladesh rioted last month over demands that their pay be lifted above the minimum monthly wage of about $24. (July 10th 2010) Tiger Countries Meet in Bali to Map Rescue; Only 3,000 Remaining Worldwide Representatives from 13 “tiger-range countries” met in Bali on Monday (12/7) to draft a global recovery plan ahead of a summit in Russia in September. “We’re gathering here because we share concerns about the sustainability of tigers,” Indonesian Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan said in an opening address to delegates. “It is alarming that out of the 9 tiger subspecies in the world, only six are remaining.” The plan to be drafted in Bali will be used as the basis for discussion at a “tiger summit” in St. Petersburg from September 15 to 18. “In Indonesia alone, only the Sumatran tiger still exists, while the other two subspecies have become extinct,” the minister said, referring to Javan and Balinese tigers which were wiped out in the 1980s and 1940s respectively. He blamed a “lack of law enforcement” for the continuing losses of Sumatran tigers, which number only about 400 in the wild. Several are killed every year by poachers and villagers who compete with them for dwindling forest resources. WWF says the global, wild population of tigers of all species has fallen from about 100,000 to an estimated 3,200 over the past century. (July 12th 2010) Towering Undersea Volcano Mapped off Indonesia US and Indonesian researchers, using a powerful sonar system and a robotic vehicle with high-definition video, are exploring terrain off Sulawesi island in hopes of getting a glimpse into complex and little-known marine ecosystems. They have mapped 6,200 sq-km of sea floor since setting off last month, an area equal to the size of the US state of Delaware, according to a news release from the American embassy in Jakarta. They found one undersea volcano that rises more than 3,000 meters in water 5,480mtr deep, said Jim Holden, the chief US scientist for the first leg of the joint expedition. “This is a huge undersea volcano,” he said, “taller than all but 3 or 4 mountains in Indonesia.” The researchers hope the maps and video produced from the journey will pave the way for others who want to follow up on their preliminary findings. “The more we understand these undersea features and the communities of life they support, the better we can manage and protect the ocean and its resources,” said Holden, a microbiologist at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Sugiarta Wirasantosa, the chief Indonesian scientist for the expedition, said the research could contribute to protecting ecosystems that support fisheries. (July 12th 2010)

Attack on Activist Reflects Resistance to Anti-Corruption Constitutional Court Chairman Mahfud MD said the recent attack on an anti-corruption activist was the manifestation of resistance to the national anti-graft drive. “The motive of the attack is resentment against the corruption eradication efforts. However, the incident must not make us afraid to continue the fight against corruption,” he said after visiting Tama Satya Langkun (25), the activist of the Indonesian Corruption Watch (ICW), at a hospital here on Saturday (10/7). Mahfud said he did not know if the attack was linked to reports about suspicious accounts of several high ranking police officers. 4 people attacked Tama in Duren Tiga, South Jakarta, early on Thursday. Tama is now still being treated for his wounds at Asri Hospital in Durent Tiga. The wounds on his head required up to 29 stitches. Tama also sustained injuries on several other parts of his body such as neck, right hand and others and injuries he suffered after falling from his motorbike during the attack. Tama is the ICW activist that has reported suspicious accounts of some police officers to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). (July 11th 2010) Woman Arrested in Bali with 2.4 Kilos of Heroin Airport authorities in Bali have arrested a Philippine citizen for attempting to smuggle in 2.4 kg of heroin from Malaysia. Carolina Sarmiento Bautista, 41, was arrested on Monday (12/7) after officers found 2 packages of heroin in her luggage. The drugs had an estimated street value of Rp. 7 billion ($775,000). The head of Ngurah Rai International Airport’s customs office, Bambang Wahyudi, said on Tuesday that Bautista arrived at 7:30 a.m. the previous day on an AirAsia flight from Kuala Lumpur. Bambang said the suspect looked nervous when her luggage passed through an X-ray machine, prompting officers to perform a hand search of her bags. A search of her luggage revealed the heroin taped beneath the liner of one of the bags. Bautista reportedly told officers that an Indian man had paid her $1,000 in Kuala Lumpur to ferry the drugs to Jakarta via Bali. “She claimed she wasn’t acquainted with the man, who she said she met while vacationing in Kuala Lumpur,” Bambang said. (July 12th 2010) Nigerian Football Players Attempt to Smuggle 2 Kgs Sabu-Sabu into Bali Foiled Efforts to smuggle sabu-sabu weighing over 2kg into Bali was thwarted by Ngurah Rai Airport Customs officers, Denpasar on Friday (16/7). “This case involves four suspects, each of three foreign nationals and one Indonesian citizen,” said the Head Officer of Customs Supervision and Human Services at the Ngurah Rai Airport. The suspects were arrested shortly after landing on an Air Asia flight from at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport. The suspects were arrested with over 2kg of methamphetamines hidden in a false wall suitcase. The 2 Nigerians were apparently football players but are not currently contracted by any particular team. (July 18th 2010) Balinese Art Draws International Participants Some 25 people from the United States, France, Norway, Jakarta and Bali are to take part in an intensive Balinese gamelan and dance study program at the artists village of Ubud in Bali`s Gianyar district. Ubud Cudomani Pengosekan studio chairman Dewa Putra Bearata said here on Friday (9/7) the program will last three weeks. The foreign participants would be spending part of their quality time to study some of Bali’s famous traditional dances and music intensively under the guidance of maestros. A number of Balinese dance and gamelan maestros like Ni Ketut Arini, I Nyoman Cerita and I Made Arnawa would be among the instructors in the program. The program’s activities would be arranged in such a way that the foreign participants could be expected to come to Bali again in 2011 for further explorations into Balinese arts. The Cudomani foundation has many times held Balinese dance and music performances in the USA, Japan and European Union countries. Dewa Berata set up the foundation in 1997 together with several Balinese dance and gamelan maestros. Cudamani studio is practicing and teaching the works of past traditions as well as creating and enacting new breakthroughs as its service to the community. (July 9th 2010)

Indonesian Muslims Praying in Wrong Direction after 1,000-mile mistake Indonesian Muslims have been praying in the wrong direction for months, facing Somalia when they should have been facing Saudi Arabia, the country’s highest religious authority said today. A cleric from the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) admitted the body made a mistake last March when calculating where Muslims should turn to when praying. He said new instructions had now been issued and that people only had to shift their position for the correct alignment. According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad was born in Mecca, and it is said to be the place where Allah’s message was first revealed to him. Each day Muslims from around the world turn to Mecca to pray and, at least once in their lives if they can afford it, travel there to perform the hajj, or pilgrimage. The error did not mean their prayers would be ignored, he added. “God understands that humans make mistakes. Allah always hears their prayers.” (July 19th 2010) 3 Kg Gas Cylinders Exploding Causing Disfigurement, Death and Property Damage The government and state-owned energy company PT. Pertamina have announced various plans to address the explosions of 3 kg gas canisters, tens of millions of which have been distributed since 2006 under a program to reduce fuel subsidies by swapping kerosene for cheaper liquefied petroleum gas. In response to the accidents, which have led to disfigurement, death and property damage across the nation, Yudhoyono has ordered thorough investigations. Pertamina has also started distributing certified hoses and regulators to replace the faulty equipment at the root of the problem. Pertamina has promised to pay for the treatment of people injured by canister blasts, adding that it had spent Rp. 3 billion ($330,000) on compensation since 2007. However, Wianda Pusponegoro, Pertamina’s media relations manager, had previously said that the company would only pay for plastic surgery that was necessary to save victims’ lives or functional organs. The company provides Rp. 25 million in compensation for deaths and permanent disabilities caused by the explosions. (July 20th 2010). Two Shariah Police Officers Receive 8-Year Sentences for Rape of Student The Langsa District Court in East Aceh on Thursday (15/7) sentenced two members of the Shariah Police to eight years in prison each for the rape and torture of a 20-year-old female student in January. The punishment was less than the maximum 12-year jail term demanded by prosecutors, who argued that as members of the Shariah Police, also known as Wilayatul Hisbah, the defendants should have better morals. Prosecutor Sayed Muhammad had previously pointed out that the offenders, Muhammad Nazir, 29, and Feri Agus, 28, had taken turns raping the woman in a detention cell with another officer in the early hours of Jan. 8. The third suspect, Dedy Setiawan, 27, is still at large. Both convicts said through their lawyers that they would consider the verdict before deciding whether to appeal. Judge Lukman Bachmid, the Langsa District Court chief, said on Thursday that both men had received the eight-year sentences because of the harm and trauma inflicted on the victim. The victim, identified only as N, was taken into custody by the Shariah Police for allegedly engaging in an immoral act with her boyfriend. Both she and her boyfriend were detained and questioned by the officers. The rape occurred early on a Friday, which is considered a holy day for Muslims with mandatory prayers held in the afternoon for Muslim men. Sayed said that a medical examination confirmed the victim had been sexually assaulted and that she had suffered severe hemorrhaging as a result of the rape. After the incident was made public, rights activists in Aceh and across the country called for the Shariah Police to be disbanded, saying that it was a law unto itself and did nothing but harass women about their clothes and humiliate young unmarried couples.(July 15th 2010)

Artisans of Bali by

Many of us know of Jenggala Ceramics, a good example of an original ‘Artisan of Bali’ who commenced working from a small shed in the Batujimbar Estate, Sanur, many years ago & now has a huge organization based in Jimbaran, exporting ceramic product to the world. Then there is the fashion savvy high-end designer, Gaya Ceramics & Design who work with one-off commissions for the luxe market (hotels, resorts, villas & plush stores) & have that enviable Italian style & flair for their chosen craft. They have also created several workshops, ceramic retreats & residentials for enthusiasts to attend on a regular basis.


And now , which has become a real consumer option, offering stylish, colorful quality product for both retail & the export market. If anyone is about to embark on acquiring a new set of dinnerware for their home, a chef ready to customize an individual line of product for a new hotel restaurant or villa resort, then bet you, Kevala will meet your requirements & more!

Kevala Ceramics : creative spirit!

stylish shapes made with

It all started back when Bali Moon Ceramics was one company, but as often the case, partners move apart & go their separate ways, Wendy was a partner & kept the ceramic side of the business, and the others moved in various directions. So, three years on & Wendy Thomas (I call her, the Chairwoman of the Board) has moved fast forward, keeping the original site of the company, developed the business, expanded the site & changed the name to Kevala, growing her ‘empire’ with a fierce passion that many a Northerner from England can demonstrate.

etched detail of pattern, a matt dinner set in brown with a partial burnt orange glaze, to the ‘starfish design collection’ in bright citrus with cobalt blue. There are chunky Chinese style ginger pots, tactile & squashy looking vases, to the very striking bold matt black & cream design pieces of ‘the African objets’. And like all good ceramic operators, they just love bathroom accessories! atomizers, burners & soap dishes, there’s a container for every occasion.

All product is showcased on custom built shelving (a fabulous citrus shade) where one can stand back & admire the sculptural forms of the product, which is what one would call ‘very commercial’ it’s user friendly, modish & fashionable. And the smart businesswoman that Madam Chairwoman is, employs the ‘classic text book approach’ to marketing her own Kevala product, a rite that she performs very well indeed, Kevala is now a brand name on everyone’s lips!

What one can make with a ball of clay, and how different that piece can be from another ceramic brand is all in the work of the owner and art itself. Space for this ad donated by Bali Advertiser

Kevala has a well organized production facility, from the mixing of clay (using their own selected materials from a variety of sources) to the making & shaping of the desired piece, down to the colors and glazing. (some commercial dyes are used from natural materials). The place ‘hums’ with a staff of 55, dressed in uniform of citrus green, they work in a bright & happy environment, with excellent facilities, to a well defined procedure for OH&S. Bright & bold signage is well placed out on the ByPass providing directions to Kevala. Apart from the showroom & production facility there is a retail space, here it all lies in wait for your decision to buy. There are also some supplementary items to compliment the ceramics like placemats & napkins, to kid’s tea sets. Kevala welcomes individuals & small groups, and very soon, you will be able to ‘try your hand’ at the clay wheels too, a lot of fun, perhaps this activity could end up being your new found hobby?

Overall, verall, the Kevala style exudes fresh & contemporary, modern day functional shapes that utilize the color palette to the maximum. Marvelous sunshine colors, clear gelato shades with some depth, pieces that feature a point of difference, like the stylish handle on a coffee cup to an all over pattern for a jug. And, with such great colors available, don’t be a bore, mix them all up, makes for a fun dinnertime! Natural creams work well with ochre & brown that sport

Kevala enjoys excellent business relations with Bali based hotels, like, the Ayana, Inter-Con, Westin, GHM hotels & the Serai, who have enjoyed working on the creation of their own exclusive in-house collections. Interior designers are another group of professionals that contact Kevala for developing product, as well as providing selected retailers around town. For you & I, the best advice is to take a hike over to the Kevala factory in Sanur, and view the busy collection of what is available displayed on the shelf, if they don’t have it all, then you can make an order, so easy! I can vouch that Kevala is one fun place to shop, and you might even get to meet the ‘infamous’ Madame Chairwoman at that!

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

What does ‘Porseni’ mean? Staged throughout Indonesia, Porseni is an acronym meaning Pekan Olahraga dan Seni (week of sport and art). This event is not always a week long though and can be just a couple of days, depending on the number of participants. Originally a government initiative to encourage village pride and to let others know about what a particular area has to offer, Porseni can be held by other organizations, such as universities, schools etc. If it is a village event, it can involve many banjar, encouraging healthy competition between the local youth groups. Highlights for the younger members of the community are the lively gamelan baleganjur competitions and the colourful giant kite contests. Posreni involves the whole community: youth and women’s groups as well as local organizations and clubs. An annual event, if it is a village initiative, it is traditionally funded by local government. Porseni once focused more on tradition but these days it’s a real mixture of the old and the new. In terms of sports here in Bali, you can see everything from tajog (stilt walking), lomba bakiak (coconut-shell walking race), ngejuk kucit (catching piglets!) right through to volleyball, table tennis, soccer etc. On the arts front, there are always sonorous gamelan and dance performances, including gong kebyar, baleganjur, semar pegulingan, gender wayang etc. as well as pop and rock concerts, and of course the karaoke competitions! Except for the odd banner and article on a local government website, there is little public advertising for Porseni. This means that it may be by chance that you hear about an event. It’s definitely worth checking out a local Porseni if you can. You will not only learn about the local art-forms but you may have an opportunity to join in! Activities and performances are free and it’s good, clean local fun for all ages.

Vaughan Hatch has immersed himself with Balinese culture, living with locals in Bali since 1997. He speaks fluent Indonesian and Balinese, and is unashamedly addicted to playing gamelan. A linguistic, archaeology and publishing graduate, he works for indOKiwi ‘linguistic and cultural solutions’ in Sanur. Email him on or call (0361) 8427030 for further queries.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT By Shari Bali has some of the most beautiful tropical spas in the world. Several of them have won top awards with Conde Nast and the Crystal Spa Awards. Luckily, you have the opportunity to choose from an unlimited assortment of health and beauty treatments in some the most beautiful spas in Bali. However, some of these spas do offer some unusual treatments beyond the standard fare. You can find the standard fare on the spa menu at most spas, such as Balinese, aromatherapy and warm stone massage plus body scrubs, wraps and facials; these are the treatments that most people have. I have had hundreds of massages and spa packages but the ones I tell my friends about or even post on facebook are the unusual treatments I’ve had. These are the truly memorable experiences you want to try for something completely different. JAMU TRADITIONAL SPA is probably the only spa in Bali offering the traditional healing Kerokan or coin massage. Commonly found in the villages this treatment is used to ward off masuk angin or entering wind, a common ailment with Indonesians. The symptoms Th can be chills, ca fever, feelings of fev flu or just feeling under the weathun er. Generally it’s er blamed on getting cold. Scraping a coin Sc across the back ac and chest area an b etween the Kerokan Massage bones relieves these symptoms. Jamu offers a choice of a gentler scraping with a large flat bean or a stronger method using a coin. Both methods are relatively pain free. The unfortunate side effect is red stripes looking like you’ve been whipped. However, these stripes soon fade within a couple days by the time you will be feeling back to good health. This ninety minute treatment also includes a nice footbath ritual and a wonderful traditional massage. If you’re feeling like a cold or flu is coming on head to Jamu Spa at Alam Kul Kul in Kuta or Tanjung Sari Hotel in Sanur.20% Discount for KITAS holders and 50% for locals. 361-704581

cause the phases of the moon are influenced by the ebb and flow of the oceans, our bodies are also influenced by the lunar phases. Choosing the treatment that “feels right” for you may not be the current phase of the moon but this is not significant as we have moved beyond our connection to the physical universe. The Tilem (nurture of the dark moon) ritual is given by 2 synchronised therapists followed by a fresh fruit body mask to plump and rejuvenate the skin with a final exfoliating scrub with black pepper and sesame seeds. The Bulan Penangal ritual Oazia Spa is an invigorating Balinese massage then wrapped in a mineral rich seaweed body mask. The Purnama (Light of the full moon) is for a stronger healing with the 90 minute Oazia Contour massage followed by a scrub. Bulan Pengelong is an intuitive healing massage, which is very strong followed by a milk & honey rose petal body mask. The treatments left us feeling relaxed and balanced with glowing skin. Oazia also has a Watsu pool for a blissful water treatment. 361-8446105

L’AYURVEDA CENTRE for inner beauty and holistic care. This is not a pampering spa, but the two main purposes are to preserve the health of an individual and to heal the sick. The atmosphere is spiritual and all the skilled therapists practice meditation. They have special therapies using meditation techniques to teach you how to overcome stress, overcome emotion imbalance, free from anxiety, improve vision, mind culturing and hypnotherapy. During these 30 minute sessions you learn the techniques to use at home. Their speciality is Ayurveda treatments, which are intended to balance the energy doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha to restore health. Besides the popular Shirodhara head treatment, they also have an Ayurvedic Abhyanga body massage based on your body constitution designed to rejuvenate your body, calm your mind and culture your emotions. Shirodhara The therapist created a special blend of oils for my body type and used her skills to work on my body by stimulating the energy centres called marmas to detoxify and balance. I was in a state of bliss at the end of the treatment and had to force myself to climb off the massage bed and leave. They have a lovely gift shop selling crystals, brass Hindu and Buddhist statues and books as well as evening meditation classes. Located on Sunset road near Carrefour. 7801595

REMEDE Spa at St. Regis has a couple of very unique experiences on offer. Firstly, a holistic master from Solo, with a long list of qualifications in Acupuncture, Javanese and Chinese medicine and Reiki to name a few, does a consultation to check your general health, acute and chronic problems in the body. He checks your pulses and probes some pressure points, while asking questions. After his diagnosis he will make a recommendation for which holistic treatment would be the most beneficial to restore health, such as detoxification, rebalancing or master healing. Secondly, I enjoyed the signature ritual called Bloody Mary, inspired from the legendary drink. I was ushered into the luxurious room with black walls with a swarm of backlit cut-out images of butterflies flying across the walls. In the centre of the ceiling is a faux skylight with a kaleidoscope of butterflies fluttering toward the shimmering crescent moon. Soft music played as I reclined on the electronic massage bed that adjusted tto my body. The ritual began with an energising tomato, w pineapple and wasabi body Remede Spa - Butterfly Wall reviver to polish and soften the skin. After the garden shower I was coated with a vodka, ttomato and clay body mask that, acts as an antioxidant. Supposedly, the vodka is good for the elastin in the skin. Wow, maybe I should stop drinking it and just rub it on my skin! While wrapped in a warm cocoon, my therapist gave me a soothing w head massage. After a second garden shower I returned to tthe butterfly room for a marvellous massage. The grand finale is the soak in the gigantic onyx flower bath of tomato, vvermouth and mineral salt, whilst sipping a delicious Bloody Mary! While enjoying my cocktail I contemplated what a divinely decadent ritual this was. The only thing to improve it would be to share my Bloody Mary with Johnny Depp. I felt fantastic after I dressed and found myself singing a James Brown song, “I feel good” on the drive home. REMEDE Spa has 15% discounts on some mornings for local residents from 8 – 11, with use of the sauna, steam and vitality pool. This is an excellent prelude to the fantastic Sunday brunch at Boneka restaurant. 361-3006716

OAZIA VILLAS & SPA in Canggu is set in a style of white wood and curtains looking out to tropical greenery next to the river. All the treatments are holistic, using 100% natural products. Their special rituals are named after the Balinese phases of the moon, offering 4 different massages combined with tantalizing body scrubs and wraps that are tempting to eat. Be-

TALAGA SPA located in Seminyak specializes in using pure virgin coconut oil in all of its treatments. VCO is known for its healing properties of improving the immune system, promoting weight loss and softening the skin and hair just to name a few of its benefits. All of Talaga’s therapists practice meditation

and are trained to balance energy. I tried The Magical Coconut ritual of 150 minutes of bliss. First the feet are purified with coconut water as part of its footbath. Then begin with a coconut body scrub scented with fruit or flowers to remove the dead skin cells. Next balancing the energy with sound resonance and aura touch healing to clean and balance the energy. Continue with the Balinese Urut massage, which comprises a mixture of deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger p point and therapeutic touch. This massage will release all p ttension and knots you may have. For the grand finale the

Here, you can enjoy one of the best spa treatments that I know of, the Aquatonic pool; which contains water from the Indian Ocean and warmed to rebalance mineral deficiencies and provide the body with curative and preventative properties of seawater. As you travel through the therapy pool of 62 hydromassage stations you massage each part of your body, from the arches of your feet to the nape of your neck. It takes 2 hours to complete the circuit and afterwards you’ll feel so relaxed and rubbery in every part of your body when you finally emerge from the pool. This is the best water massage that I know of and is great preparation for a thalassotherapy or a traditional massage. The strong jets on the thighs are

I recently overcame an aversion to small boats and deep water long enough to visit the island that slumbers off Bali’s east coast. Nusa Penida is like another world, existing in a different dimension from modern Bali. Its isolation and small population give it a sleepy, old-fashioned quality reminiscent of little Asian towns 30 years ago. Cars and foreign faces are rare. The seas that lap its beaches are clear and brilliantly blue. And Bali’s iconic bird, the critically endangered Bali Starling, flies freely among the trees. In a country where wildlife habitat is being ruthlessly eroded by development, deforestation and monoculture, it’s a small miracle to find a place that’s moving in the other direction. In Nusa Penida, an integrated program by the Friends of the

National Park Foundation (FNPF) brings together the rehabilitation and release of captive-bred Bali Starlings, community education and reforestation. Temples, school children, farmers and fishermen are all involved in the slow process of turning their island into a world class bird sanctuary. West Bali National Park is the official Bali Starling sanctuary and hundreds of birds have been released there since the 1980s. But constant poaching for the illegal pet trade has kept the numbers below a sustainable level, and the Bali Starling is technically extinct in the wild. Fewer than 10 birds were estimated to remain in the Park in 2005, and birdwatchers travelling to the sanctuary to glimpse the iconic starling are usually disappointed. FNPF Director Dr Bayu Wirayudha is a veterinarian and a Bali Starling expert who has bred the rare bird for over a decade. He helped establish a successful private Bali Starling conservation program with the Begawan Giri Foundation (BGF) and in 2004 began to look for a safe release site in Bali. Instead of official support, he encountered many obstacles. “This bird is hardy enough to breed in outdoor aviaries in England in the winter,” he points out. “The Bali Starling would do well anywhere in Bali, but I could not find a public agency or a community that would provide a secure area for the birds or pledge to protect them.” Bayu turned his gaze to Nusa Penida, the arid, undeveloped island to the east. Nusa Penida has less than 5% forest cover (Bali has 40%), there is no surface water and the water table is too deep to tap. Islanders rely on rainwater catchment tanks for household use; there is no water for irrigation. The island’s official population of 40,000 is in fact much lower. Most have moved on to greener pastures, with those remaining eking out a slim living from fishing, subsistence farming and harvesting seaweed. Bayu and FNPF members spent two years working with the villages of Nusa Penida to educate the people in conservation and persuade them to protect the Bali Starlings from poachers. All communities on the island agreed to abide by awig awig, a traditional law which places the birds under the protection of the temple and, by extension, its members. This is the first time in Indonesia that local community members have been trained to and are actively participating in the protection of released birds. Bayu went on to establish Indonesia’s first bird sanctuary in a populated area, proving that wildlife and people can live harmoniously together. And in 2007 Indonesian President SBY accepted Bayu’s invitation

to release several Bali Starlings from the Begawan Giri collection, the first official approval the project had received.

This is the first time in Indonesia that local community members have been trained to and are actively participating in the protection of released birds The crossing to Nusa Penida from Padangbai was mercifully smooth and took just over an hour. We stepped out of the boat into the warm sea; there is no dock at Buyuk. A few minutes drive to the south is the FNPF Bird Centre. Under a leafy canopy we found offices, aviaries, simple accommodation and a plant nursery. The friendly staff served us breakfast, then we went looking for Bali Starlings. Our guide led us past a row of aviaries where a group of the rare birds waited for release, and pointed out an old bee hive high in a dead tree near the road. It seemed an unlikely spot for such an exotic bird, but in fact there were many sightings that morning. The FNPF staff continually monitor the released birds and know where they nest, so it’s unusual NOT to see at least one. The Centre has released 64 Bali Starlings since 2006 and there are estimated to be at least 100 in the wild in Nusa Penida where they breed freely in the coconut trees. The program also releases other endangered birds including Mitchell’s lorikeets (which are almost extinct in Bali), lesser Sulfur Crested cockatoos and Java Sparrows. Bayu’s vision is to provide a sanctuary for threatened bird species so they can build up numbers without the threat of poaching. Since the program began six years ago, not a single bird has been poached. Considering the poverty of the people and the fact that a Bali Starling can be sold for over Rp 10 million on the black market, this augers well for the eventual success of the bird sanctuary. Bayu’s goal is to have a population of 300 Bali Starlings in the wild in Nusa Penida in the next five years. A growing bird population needs habitat for food, shelter and nesting. That means trees… lots of trees. Forests not only provide habitat for wildlife, they also help attract rainfall, control soil erosion and build up topsoil. A variety of trees also provides medicine, wood, fodder, carving materials, fruit, dyes, honey production and other sustainable products, contributing to a more prosperous community. So reforestation is an important part of FNPF’s vision. Behind the FNPF office a nursery shelters row upon row of young trees in black poly bags. Forest cover of at least 30% is needed to provide a good micro-climate, and Bayu began to offer free tree seedlings to the villagers in 2007. Since then, the FNPF nursery has distributed 100,000 tree saplings and 8,000 young bamboo plants. The nursery was recently enlarged and can now produce about 60,0000 saplings a year. Some are distributed to villagers and the rest will be used in the FNFP’s reforestation program. In 2008 the local government gave 100 hectares of degraded land to the FNPF for reforestation. We drove there over bare limestone hills thatched with lemon grass. Almost every dry hillside was tightly terraced for vegetables; perhaps there had been more rainfall when they were built. All this land has been long abandoned and no one can remember it being farmed.

With a growing international interest in bird-watching, the Nusa Penida Bird Sanctuary may become a destination in its own right. The FNFP reforestation site, another bald hilltop, is 15 scenic kilometres from the Centre. Bayu wants to plant a corridor of leafy trees all along the road, to provide a verdant path for the released birds to follow to their new home. The reforestation area has been planted with 17,000 trees in the past two years. Seven rainwater catchment tanks have been built; in these harsh conditions the young trees need water and mulch for the first three years until they are strong enough to survive. Bayu would like to build many more tanks. “The

survival rate of the young trees is over 80%,” Bayu reports. “We lost some when a farmer set fire to the dry grass. There is still a lot of education to be done; farmers don’t yet understand that these areas have to be protected from illegal grazing and fire, so the trees can mature and provide a better environment for their children.” The education process is a long one. The staff builds firebreaks and gives workshops to farmers on turning dry grass waste into fermented cattle fodder. School children visit the nursery and help with the tree planting. FNFP sponsors 43 high school students and one university student. But Bayu is confident that over time the people of Nusa Penida will see the benefit of the program, especially as the eco-tourism element begins to kick in. Starting in S e p t e m b e r, FNFP will be running one-day tours from Ubud to Nusa Penida. I was the guinea pig for this activity, and it was a wonderful experience. After a tour of the nursery and our Bali Starling encounter we drove to the reforestation project, stopping at an old village along the way to buy ikat directly from the weavers. Later we picnicked on the southeast coast, overlooking dramatic white limestone cliffs that dropped steeply into an azure sea. The day was a great adventure, knowledgeably led and packed with interesting sights and activities. And, of course, an encounter with the elusive Bali Starling which I’ve never seen outside a cage. With a growing international interest in bird-watching, the Nusa Penida Bird Sanctuary may become a destination in its own right. The FNPF has recently opened a visitor’s centre in Ubud on Jalan Bisma opposite Café des Artistes. Bayu and his Australian volunteer Alan enthusiastically share information about programs in Nusa Penida and Borneo, where FNFP manages a reforestation project to create habitat for the orang utan. Visit for the full story. Like most NGOs, FNPF is chronically under funded. Consider a direct donation: $4 plants a tree and monitors it for three years $300 sponsors a young person to attend high school for a year $ 5 builds a 50m2 firebreak $1000 builds a rainwater catchment tank to irrigate one hectare of reforested hillside $20 buys a bag of seeds for the nursery
