Splash Water Park Now Open The New Canggu Club seems to have cemented its position as a prime pick for all round family holiday fun with the recent opening of its latest attraction, Splash Water Park. With eight different areas to amp up the adrenalin, Splash offers something for everyone.

before taking a tail spin around the orange and green bowl then shooting into the plunge pool below! Or take on Big Red. No shortage of excitement here either as sliders weave around each bend, momentum intensifying at every turn from the fifth storey to the floor.

At five storeys high, four lanes across and ninety metres long, The Giant Racer invites sliders to challenge their mates and race the clock! Grab three willing adrenalin junkies and ready, set, go to see who is the fastest down the track. A first in Bali, the integrated slide speedometer displays riders’ times on a screen at the end of each race. Younger thrill seekers don’t miss out either as a smaller version of the slide, The Speed Racer is only a few metres away.

Take a cruise along the Crazy Creek, meandering through this 102 metre water course is a welcome time out from the excitement above. Watch the kids delight in Splash Playground, a wonderland for wee ones to have big fun and their fare share of adventure. There is action aplenty with water cannons, mini slides, slippery pole, a climbing fort and the giant water pail. All rides are under the watchful eye of Splash Park lifeguards.

If carving out the curves seems more appealing try the Super Bowl. It’s a whirl of fun as speed increases with every turn

All of those stairs and slides build a hearty appetite and there are plenty of quick and tasty options to refuel and head back

mum’s smart phone! Yes, I agree in this modern world where we book, buy and bank online it is important to keep up with this ever changing cyber life but I wonder if it is sometimes to the detriment of the art of good old fashioned play.

Tinker Around with Toys Now don’t get me wrong, technology is terrific. I mean, where would most of us be without our iPhones, iPads, iMacs, iPods and the ability to flick to Facebook or update our Instagram page in an iMoment.......I dread to think! It’s not even like I know how to use half of these gadgets to their full potential, but most of our children do! From a rather early age many youngsters become accustomed to these devices and there aren’t too many five year olds who can’t swipe the screen to open their

A Middle Eastern Oasis in the Heart of Umalas After reading a recent article in ‘The Jakarta Post’ suggesting Umalas to be developing into a bit of a foodie enclave, I decided to see for myself what all the fuss was about. Starting with the name on the top of the list of five establishments mentioned, I ventured away from the mounting traffic chaos and veered along Jalan Bumbak to search for Cafe Cous Cous. Clearly a number of others were already aware of the buzz about this place and had beaten me to it! It was a little after the lunch hour rush but there was barely a spare seat in the house and I settled into the only remaining chair out on the shaded verandah. Grateful for the green of the rice paddies directly opposite, I can feel the tension from the traffic earlier already dissolving. I turn my attention to the cafe’s interior and note chic and calming decor blend effortlessly with local Balinese touches creating a welcoming space to while away my afternoon. But enough about the decor, I’m starving! Dewi delivers the menu and my tastebuds are torn between an all day breakfast option or lunch. The Good Vibrations breakfast


01 October - 15 October, 2014

A couple of like minded ladies have decided to inspire the desire in children to step away from their screens and experience a world through play by setting up soon-to-beopen ‘Tinkers Toy Shop’. Helen, medic and mother of two, has been on a five year adventure with her husband and children, living in Norway, Beijing and now Bali. Taking the journey with her is Melissa. Originally from England, she put her career as a legal eagle on hold to concentrate on motherhood. Specialising in children’s toys and gifts, books, party supplies, stationary, helium balloons and specially crafted local products, their target market ranges from newborns to teens. Located in Canggu Plaza and scheduled to open October 8th, Tinkers Toy Shop’s new home is a 150 year old joglo filled with all types of toys and gifts designed to spark the imagination, awaken the senses and mesmerise young minds.

Not just a toy shop, Tinkers aims to encourage interaction as children are invited to enter through the tree arch and venture onto the ‘forest floor’ for book readings or to follow the footprints around the ‘workshop’ and discover toys to stimulate and develop young minds and well-being. With Halloween only weeks away, costumes, face masks and accessories are sure to be on hand come opening day. A soft opening party will be hosted by Tinkers Toy Shop and the recently opened, Mrs Jones Music Lounge and Southern Kitchen (located opposite Tinkers Toys in Canggu Plaza) on Sunday October 19th from 2pm to 5pm. In keeping with the theme of the shop, entertainment will include face painting, bouncy castle, art and craft activities and even a magician and circus acts! Tinkers Toy Shop will be open for business seven days a week from 9am to 8pm. For more information about Tinkers Toys go to: or pop in and see the Tinkers Team from October 8th at Canggu Plaza.

seems to cover all bases with avocado mash, toast, poached eggs, mushrooms, spinach and haloumi plus a choice of smoothie, juice or coffee however, despite my hunger, I feel I may not be able do justice to a meal of that calibre and instead choose the cous cous salad of the day along with a serve of zucchini and haloumi fritters with tomato relish. While I wait I peruse the numerous tasty items on the menu. There is definitely a Middle Eastern theme with falafels, feta, dips with flat breads and fresh salads. Not surprising as before moving to Bali, owner Monique Robson and her family spent thirteen years in Dubai. I am almost tempted to change my earlier order when I see the Mix it Up Mezze Plate with homemade hummus, tabouleh, babaganoush and tatziki falafel served with their crispy baked Za’atar flat bread, but I’m more than satisfied with my choice when lunch arrives. Cous cous salad peppered with a healthy dose of tomato, cucumber and olives with a zesty dressing on the side appears next to three wickedly tasty zucchini fritters. The first bite delivers the distinct flavour of haloumi and I am already wishing there was more! Lunch devoured, I am now a little too full to sample any cakes and cookies for dessert however I must satisfy my curiosity about their F.R.E.A.K. Coffee! (Fresh Roasted Enak Arabica from Kintamani). As is suggested on the menu, it

is indeed ‘Freaking Good Coffee’ and provides the perfect conclusion to my meal. Cafe Cous Cous is open from 8am - 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am - 3pm Saturdays. Breakfast is available all day and the lunch from 11am. Meals range from Rp 25,000 with most items under Rp 80,000. If you can take time out to treat your tastebuds, cruise down Jalan Bumbak and lookout for this little Middle Eastern oasis in Umalas.

A few years ago I acquired the most beautiful antique Chinese wedding bed. Meticulously carved and gilded, it had been purchased in Java many years ago and passed on to me by a friend. It’s only 120 cm wide so its role in conjugal relations is a bit mystifying. Either the husband and wife were extremely slender, or slept on top of one another, or the bed was used only on special occasions. But it’s perfect for just one not very large person. I love this bed. Not only is it a work of art in perfect condition, it breathes a quiet and digni¿ed history. Climbing into it at night is a great pleasure. I have interesting dreams in my bed, then wake to admire the scalloped wooden canopy, carved tassels and suspended coins.

How do we protect our roof beams and treasured antique beds from termites? There are three options; build physical barriers into your basic house construction, retro-¿t your existing home with physical barriers, or control existing infestations with chemical or non-chemical pesticides.

Both of these species live on cellulose, a ¿bre found from under me a few years ago. But I used it on my front gate, in all plants and plant products -- paper, plywood, window made of old teak which had been restored with some new frames and antique Java beds. wood (termites love juicy young wood) and it worked a treat. Subterranean termites build mud tunnels from their large underground chambers and these can be seen on walls and furniture.The dry wood termite, which quietly and invisibly consume your precious wood from the inside, leave those little piles of pellets called frass as evidence of their presence. Several weeks ago Alex Ryan of Kaltimber gave a riveting talk on these beasts and how to build your house to exclude them. The subterranean kind, which are much more destructive, can squeeze through cracks in cement just 1.2 millimetres wide in their quest for food. If you’ve ever seen a foundation poured in Bali, you know that most of them take a day or two, using a hand mixer and little black buckets, usually using less of the expensive cement than optimal. With our frequent small earthquakes it’s not unusual for tiny cracks to form in these foundations, through which enterprising termites can easily enter the house. Young wood with its high cellulose content is a favourite target.

I talked toThierry Cayot, who developed this wonderful product. Thierry started out making and exporting wooden furniture to Europe from Java, then moved to Bali and started working with bamboo instead because of the ethical issues of using wood.

Powderpost beetles love bamboo, which needs to be treated before it can be used for construction, furniture or decor items. Thierry didn’t want to use borax because the high volume of residual salts was dif¿cult to dispose of, so he started experimenting with natural insecticides about four years ago. “The fourth version of Freemite which is now on the market is highly concentrated,” Thierry explains. “One litre of the mix yields 200 litres of solution, which now also contains an element that helps it to penetrate wood more quickly and ef¿ciently.

“We use Freemitein our own industry daily and keep careful Second only to ants, termites are one of the most numerous records. We treat about 60 kilometres of bamboo in a year insects on earth in number.

Ironwood takes hundreds of years to grow to useable size and the seeds take years to germinate. Because of this there’s no incentive to farm it. So there’s no ethical way to use ironwood without very tight chain of custody certi¿cation from your wood merchant.” Old teak is just that; contemporary teak plantations now harvest the

OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Approximately 12 percent women will develop some kind of breast cancer in their lifetime. Think about it. That means that out of 8 women that you know, one of them could develop breast cancer. The facts • The number of people being diagnosed with breast cancer is increasing (almost doubled in the past 20 years), but the good news is survival rates are improving. This is probably because of more targeted treatments, earlier detection and better breast awareness. • Breast cancer also affects men, but it’s rare. • Breast cancer is not one single disease there are several types of breast cancer. • Not all breast cancers show as a lump, and not all breast lumps are breast cancer. • Less than 10% of breast cancer runs in families, so having someone in your family with breast cancer doesn’t necessarily mean your own risk is increased. So here are 10 things you need to know, or you need to pass on to a woman that you care about. 1. Know your risk factors for breast cancer. Getting older and having a strong family history of cancer are the most common risk factors. Breast cancer is rare in women under 25 years, the incidence being highest (80%) in the 45 -55 year age group. Women whose mothers or sisters have suffered from breast cancer are at in increased risk. Risk is increased in women who have previously suffered from cancer of the breast, ovaries, or womb. The risk is increased by factors increasing the number of menstrual cycles, i.e. menstruating at an early age and menopause over 50 years of age, never having children and not breast-feeding. 2. Should women check their breasts and how often? It is important for women of all ages to get to know the normal look and feel of their breasts as part of everyday activities, such as showering, dressing, putting on body lotion or simply looking in the mirror. Regular mammograms are not recommended for women under the age of 40 because they are not effective in detecting breast cancer early in younger women. This is because younger women’s breast tissue is dense, making it difficult to detect early signs of breast cancer. As a woman grows older and her breast tissue becomes less dense, it becomes more transparent on a mammogram and it’s easier to detect early signs of cancer. 3. Should you test for the breast cancer gene. The BRCA gene test is a blood test that uses DNA analysis to identify harmful changes (mutations) in either one of the two breast cancer susceptibility genes - BRCA1 and BRCA2. Women who have inherited mutations in these genes face a much higher risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer compared with the general population. You may be a candidate for BRCA gene testing - if you have a personal or family history of breast cancer diagnosed at a young age (premenopausal), breast cancer affecting both breasts (bilateral breast cancer), or both breast and ovarian cancers, a male relative with breast cancer, a relative with a known BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation, Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jewish ancestry, with a close relative who has breast or ovarian cancer. Naturally the test cannot be done in Bali. According to the latest info I have from Singapore the genetic (blood test) test package for BRCA is approximately S$321.

C/He/I-01 Oct 14

4. How do you check your breasts correctly? Most breast irregularities are detected by women themselves. (Go to for complete self breast exam info). And now there’s an app! Both Apple and Android have excellent apps on Self Breast Examination (SBE). The best time to examine your breasts is just after your period when hormonal lumps are at their lowest. Getting to know what’s normal for you will help you to detect any new or unusual breast changes. It’s never too early to start being breast aware and it’s important to keep up the habit, even if you’re having regular mammograms. 5. What sort of changes should you look out for? • A new lump or lumpiness, especially if it’s only in one breast. • A change in the size or shape of the breast. • A change to the nipple, such as crusting, ulcer, redness or inversion. • A nipple discharge that occurs with squeezing. • A change in the skin of the breast such as redness or dimpling. • An unusual pain that doesn’t go away. Nine out of 10 breast changes are not due to cancer, but always see a doctor to be sure. What can women do to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer? Lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of the disease include exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy body weight and moderating alcohol intake. Other factors known to decrease the risk of breast cancer are having children earlier in life - before the age of 30 - and breastfeeding for 12 months or longer. C/He/I-25 June 14

Most of us know at least one local lady that I am sure has no idea of what breast cancer is or how it can be prevented. Why don’t you pass this life saving knowledge on to at least one lady.

A few months ago I wrote a story about Neil Saunders dubbed the ‘body whisperer’ because he heals horses, dogs, cats and people using intuitive touch. Recently Neil sent his good friend Paul Grif¿n to Bali to meet Serena, our local horse whisperer. Although both Paul and Neil had similar training in England in chiropractic, cranial sacral and massage and both work on animals and humans, they each have their own unique style in healing. Many people had read my article about Neil and were eager to meet Paul.

Rick then turned over and Paul made several adjustments to the back before returning to the back of the head for the third balancing. When Rick sat up he was smiling and after he stood up he said he felt his body was looser. He wouldn’t notice a big change until the following day or two I met Paul and brought because it takes time to readjust to the changes that Paul along my puppy Sadie had prompted. who has had skin problems and was on As we sat relaxing for a few minutes I threw questions at various medication until Paul about his training history.

HECTOR’S A Zesty Little Soup, Again This year’s Ubud Writers and Readers Festival kicks off today without the assistance of V.S. Naipaul, the Tolstoy of Trinidad, who withdrew from the program last month apparently dissatisfied with the quantum of perquisites set to come his way. Never mind. There are plenty of other entertainingly literary minds involved in the festival, the eleventh. Most of them aren’t gold pass members of the Figjam Club. This year’s theme, Saraswati: Wisdom & Knowledge, is an exploration of the wisdom to be gained by creative expression. The festival is fielding more than 150 writers from 25-plus countries, including a great line-up of Indonesian talent. Goenawan Mohamad, intellectual Azyumardi Azra, art patron Agung Rai and Festival favourites Debra Yatim, Ahmad Fuadi and Ketut Yuliarsa are on the list, as well as Sacha Stevenson, the How to act Indonesian YouTube hit sensation. Made Wijaya will make an appearance. It’s good to see the Seer of Sanur out and about. He’s no stranger to paradise, after all, and he’s always good for a giggle. The festival organizers declare him to be Truman Capote with a machete. Such a shame then that we shan’t actually be present: People tell us we do a great Stephen Fry with a sharp s-sstick. Prizewinning Hassan Blasim (Independent Foreign Fiction Prize); Eimear McBride (Baileys Women’s Prize) and Cyrus Mistry (2014 DSC Prize) and the Scottish queen of crime writing and creator of the TV series Wire in the Blood Val McDermid will be sampling the mists of Ubud. Novelist Amitav Ghosh and Pulitzer Prize-finalist Deborah Baker are on the program and will also lead an exclusive post-Festival Komodo Islands cruise.

He wrote this: A few weeks ago, I drove up the Sidemen road, famous since the 1930s as one of the most beautiful in Bali. I would have taken it slowly anyway, to enjoy the views, but I had no choice. Around 200 trucks were coming the other way, down from the mountains, overloaded with sand, gravel and rock. Where were they coming from? Where were they going to? They come from quarries on the slopes of the sacred mountain Agung. They are headed where everything else is headed: into the hundreds of hotel, villa and other construction projects. Most are in Bali’s coastal resorts, but some are on rice fields around the sprawling urban area of Denpasar/Kuta. A few days later, I meet a similar procession coming down the other sacred mountain, Batur. This time I learn a bit more. Every day, from before dawn till after dusk, at least 1500 overloaded trucks grind their way painfully up out of the crater, stopping on the way to offload excess weight. Down in the caldera, amid what is left of a rich but delicate ecosystem of wild grasses and orchids which feed off volcanic ash among spectacular fields of black lava, lies one

Never mind that Agung and Batur are sacred. Forget that Batur is UN heritage listed. Overlook the fact that the scene of its despoliation is slap bang in the middle of a brand new Geopark. Batur is in the Panjandrum of Bangli (we know it more formally as Kabupaten Bangli and more familiarly as the regency of the same name). Like so many other little district council areas in Indonesia, it runs at its own pace – with regal distain and glacial slowness unless acquisition of money has piqued interest – and operates by its own set of impenetrably circular rules. McRae’s “Wild West” description is colourful. But it’s inaccurate. The Sioux, the Cheyenne, the Crow, the Ute, the Apache, the Navaho and all the other nations that made up the indigenous humanity of the American West didn’t despoil their country themselves. Outsiders came in and did it for them. Here in Bali, the indigenous population is busily wrecking the joint do-it-yourself-style.

Oh Yes, We Know it Well A smile briefly creased the lips the other day when Jack Daniels’ inestimable Bali Update told us this, in relation to the proposed pedestrian underpass at the airport traffic circle to enable people to visit the park wherein one of the many monumental remembrances of local hero I Gusti Ngurah Rai stands, Ozymandias-style, surveying its domain: “The statue and the surrounding park area are deemed suitable for public recreation but are made inaccessible to the public by four lanes of heavy traffic that continually circle the area.” We’ve often thought that the chaotic traffic there is caused precisely by vehicles that continually circle the area. They might perhaps be trying to change lanes, though that’s unlikely. In Bali you just barge in. They’re probably just trapped, poor things. The plan to build the Rp 3.7 billion underpass is in doubt because the Ministry of Public Works in Jakarta, the formal owner of the non-monumental infrastructure involved, has yet to say it’s OK.

Homeward Bound For two decades long ago Britain’s longest-published weekly journal of affairs and politics, The Spectator, had a wonderful columnist whose name was Jeffrey Bernard. He was among the last of the Soho Set, a roué in the full sense of the term. He was a dreadful sot and as a result was frequently absent in the latter part of his 21 years with the magazine. “Jeffrey Bernard is unwell” became a line one looked for whenever one bought a copy of the magazine and searched for his column. Quite understandably it was called Low Life. He liked a rant and did it well. He ceased ranting in 1997, aged only 55. Nominated in one newspaper obituary as his own Boswell, he ranted so well that Keith Waterhouse wrote a play about him and Peter O’Toole starred in a madefor-TV movie filmed at the Old Vic in London. There have been times over the past four months when Hector has entertained the passing fancy that he too could be unwell. It does carry a certain cachet, after all, being vicariously included in such errantly distinguished company as Bernard’s. But we resisted the temptation. There are many we would have disappointed by non-appearance, we reasoned, the legions of Advertiser readers who turn to Hector’s Diary and utter their fortnightly imprecation: “What on earth is he on about this time?” We’re due to be home in Bali by the time the next Advertiser hits the streets. It’s been a very long time between drinks.

Meanwhile, a few hundred post-iconic rice field views away to the east from Ubud where foreign navel-gazers have taken over the place to commune with themselves, ruminate over their macrobiotic diets, wicker about saving the world, and imagine they’re experiencing the real Bali, lies Bangli, where suspension of belief takes on another form. Journalist and long-term Indonesia-watcher Graeme McRae had a disturbing piece in the online Indonesia Weekly in midSeptember, about the Wild West-style despoliation of Bali.

Resource KA-boom

of the far outposts of the global resource economy. Piles of black gravel line the narrow road around the caldera floor. Alongside it are makeshift shelters under which men and women shovel gravel through large sieves into piles of finer sand. When the sieving is done, they flag down a truck and load it by hand. Signs invite trucks into a hinterland of even narrower dirt tracks where more piles are waiting. Each hamlet the trucks pass through shares in the boom by levying its own little toll. There’s a lot more to McRae’s piece than that, of course. But it exactly describes the dilemma that faces Bali, one that is rooted in over-development, incapable administration, local lawlessness and unmet (and impossible) expectations.

Also on board are avant-garde Asian fiction writers Can Xue from China and Minae Mizumura from Japan. Former UN Representative in Sudan Mukesh Kapila; frontline journalist Pallavi Aiyar; author of The Wisdom of Whores and Indonesia etc Elizabeth Pisani; and Polish editor and journalist Adam Michnik are providing the human rights and social comment diet. And on the environmental front there’s Keibo Oiwa, Nadya Hutagalung and Willie Smits, among others. It will be a good show. One of the book launches is especially timely. Darwin, by Tess Lea, captures the essence of Australia’s northern capital. Her Darwin is a hybrid creation: part social history, part anthropological study, part personal memoir. Lea captures the city’s violent beginnings, its battles with the elements, the press of the heat and humidity, its wondrous multiculturalism, its beauty and its policy foibles. The book launch is free and is at The Elephant, Hotel Taman Indrakila, Jl Raya Sanggingan, from 4.30-6pm tomorrow (Oct. 2). This year is the 40th anniversary of Cyclone Tracy, which all but obliterated Darwin on Christmas Day, 1974.

For most expats living in Bali the local visa run is usually a non event, a one or two day dash to a close port of call like Singapore, or KL, to get that all important exit stamp, and briefly experience Western culture, (well at least in the airport) before returning back to the island. This last trip for me however was very eventful, as I witnessed something pretty much entirely new in the live music genre. Picture the scene, its 11.20 at night you are twenty minutes from landing, the last food and drinks have been cleared away, and the captain gets on the intercom and tells everyone to fasten seatbelts, then out of nowhere at the front of the plane one of the air stewards picks up a ukulele wires it to a small pig nosed amp and the internal intercom, and starts to give the passengers a show!

TJB -What does the future hold for you, are you going to continue in your job or do you think you will peruse a career in music?? RA - I’m Àying for living but music is my passion, if I could make my job and my music walk together as a solid harmony then there would be nothing to hold up my future... hopefully. You can catch Raditya on selected Air Asia Àights to and from Singapore and he also plays at ‘chiringuito’ beach bar near double six in Legian. Talking about beach bars, brings me neatly onto the second obscure musical experience I had recently, Now we all know in Jimbaran you get live music from wondering local bands who will perform at your table while you eat, but nothing prepared me for the bashing my ears received when I went for an innocent enough afternoon drink at Ketut’s beach bar on Legian beach.

The ¿rst thing I noticed as I supped my Bintang was a disheveled ¿gure winding his way towards our bar and me and my friends, the sun was blazing so maybe he just wanted a rest, but instead he came and sat with a group of six young Australians behind us and introduced himself, “ I am Charlie Tango, professional beach entertainer, the best, twenty years experience, you want to hear song then buy me a beer” the Aussie crew did and very soon he was playing requests, Charlie who looks like the character Leslie Chow from the ¿lm ‘The Hangover’ sang every song in the most weird way I have ever heard, throwing his voice, it was more a comedy act than a live musician at work, the only way I can TJB - Have you been a musician long? describe this is by RA - Quite a long time, but not professionally, just among comparing the guy to friends because eventually they like to see me perform when the 1940’s comedy singer we have gatherings. George Formby! Well this is exactly what happened on an Air Asia Àight I took a week or so ago! Amazed and dumfounded the captive audience listened as this guy sang two songs as a welcome to Bali for the tourists, the steward was actually pretty talented and even twelve rows back and listening through the crackly intercom, you could tell he had some talent as a singer and a guitarist. Intrigued I hung around after the Àight, and got an interview and some pictures with the one man air shown otherwise known as Raditya Alamanda:

TJB - How did all this come about? RA - Honestly the idea came across my mind a long time ago when I had my fourth year of working in Air Asia, I noticed that all my valued guests were expecting to have an amazing and unforgettable Àight so since I had a bit capability to cheer people up by playing some simple music and entertaining, so the thought came to me why don’t I try to use my music to enhance their experience during their journey.

Every word that came out of his lips was emphasized for example woman became ‘wooohhhhhhaaaaaoooaaamaaaan’ his guitar skills were abysmal, and his guitar (which I tried myself) was possibly one of the worst instruments I have ever played, but the truth is the more he drunk the funnier this terrible musician got, for a highly different musical experience head down to Legian Beach and see if you can’t ¿nd Charlie Tango, you’ll hear him before you see him.

TJB - What is the song about? And is it a cover or your own? Check out RA - I didn’t get the chance to write a song yet, all the songs that I was singing on board, frankly speaking were covered, most were covers from many international famous singers If you enjoyed this article or have any questions, concerns, or or bands and I love to play their music in my own way. if indeed you are the illusive Chris Curtis please don’t hesitate

TJB - What do people think of you playing your guitar on to drop me a line, here to the Bali Advertiser, or alternatively the plane? to my direct email address RA - Fortunately most of all my dear valued guests Copyright © 2014 Tobias J Brown appreciate what I do, some of them make jokes, asking me You can read all past articles of Music Matters to quit my job and start my singing career.

Can Local Government beat Climate Change? If we’re powerless, it’s because we’re not engaged

This month saw two major events likely to affect us all in days to come. The Àrst was the Scottish referendum on independence and the second, the meeting convened in New York by the UN Secretary General to set the agenda for a climate change accord to be agreed at the landmark conference on global warming scheduled in Paris for December 2015. What struck me forcibly was how these two events are linked and the issues involved fundamentally affect us all. No matter how much we look after the health and well-being we exist ecologically, medically, socially, economically and politically in a world over which we have little control. How then do we cope with the conscious or unconscious anxiety we carry when the world seems headed for serious trouble? Can we hope to change things or must we resign ourselves to whatever fate our rulers decree? When the Scots decided to stay within the United Kingdom I was glad. It seemed to me a sad thing to throw away over 300 years of shared history so easily. On reÀection I am less certain. The Scots are ultimately ruled from Westminster and thus roughly half the time by the Conservative Party, who can barely win a single seat in Scotland, so unpopular are they. Unlike the South of England the majority in both Scotland and Northern England broadly feel better-suited to a society organized more along Scandinavian lines, where the State strives to provide a certain standard of living for all. In most of Europe too, this is seen as fair and civilized, not an unconstitutional intrusion by Big Government requiring an armed response. With increasing disparities of wealth and the excesses of runaway capitalism this is a view increasingly shared South of the border and much further a¿eld. Question then is, can the socially progressive Labour Party re-establish itself successfully in Scotland to see off the Scottish Nationalists, who are narrowly de¿ned by their wish to be independent, whatever their political stripe? They are nationalists after all. There are probably as many skinheads as Trotskyites in the party’s extremities. If not, is it not far better for Scotland and any other under-represented polity to go their own way? In other words, the missing solution to so many of our problems, is the need to have real power devolved back into our communities in a workable manner. In mature societies over-centralisation is a stiÀing intrusion and all-too-often the death of upward initiative with stultifying and ultimately disastrous results. What the Scots resent is the over-centralisation of power in a distant capital in which they feel they have little say and which has become unacceptable. Indeed, this feeling is shared world-over as centralised power is seen as not just excessive, but unduly inÀuenced by powerful corporations and other vested interests, not primarily concerned with the common good. It is this sense of disempowerment and under-representation in the face of disturbing challenges that leads to a shared sense of malaise and fear for the future. As I write the United Nations has convened the largest meeting ever held on climate change at their New York HQ. Nearly 160 heads of state will attend as the Secretary General pushes hard to put in place a new global deal to be agreed in December 2015 to replace the failed Kyoto Protocol. The scienti¿ c warnings are urgent and convincing. There a few if any dissenting voices in the scienti¿c community. Unless we do make substantial progress with an agreement to reduce carbon emissions in a little over a year from now we must expect the climate to warm by anywhere between 4 and 8% by 2100. This we are told is our last chance to engineer a bumpy landing, which is the best we can now expect. Failing which, our future from 2050 on is likely to be extremely unpleasant, if not catastrophic. Big plans are afoot. The Africans are promising a cleanenergy corridor stretching from the Cape to Cairo. Pledges, ¿nancial and otherwise will be made to halve the destruction of the world’s forests by 2020 and end it by 2030. The World Bank will lead a big push to place a global price on greenhouse gas emissions. The US is to lead by example with an EPA plan seriously cutting US emissions. The premiers of China and India, two of the world’s largest emitters, will contribute by not being present.

C/He/M-Oct 16. 13

…but haven’t we heard all this before? Yes we have, but does that make it any the less true? What has changed, if anything? And why can we now reach agreement in Paris a year from now when we could not before? We, the people are not complete fools. At least most of us are not. We know the planet is in trouble and so are we. But we also know that the bankers, corporate leaders and politicians they have bought, who pretty much busted our ¿nancial system beggaring millions while enriching themselves, are not the people we can rely upon to come up with a solution. Years of assertions by global warming sceptics have so muddied the waters about climate change we don’t know the truth any more, if we ever did. We are not scientists. But the scientists do know and they have been very clear on the subject since 1990, the year the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ¿rst warned us of the dangers from global warming. Those warnings have not gone away, they have become stronger and more compelling.

C/Ho/I-06 August 14

On the face of it is a bleak prospect and one, which weighs increasingly heavy on us all. Why else the Àood of dystopic movies and books? More of the same is not going to get us out of this jam and we all know it. Government relying on businessmen and the pro¿t motive to lead the way is a pipedream. A solution will only come with a radical shift in our perceptions and something does seem to be stirring. By this I do not mean we all suddenly become eco-saints. No, what I mean is that real local power is given back to local communities to handle their own affairs to the degree that central government are forced to take note and act in a much more congruent way with the interests of the people they represent. Local government can of course be as corrupt as any other form of government so proper oversight must still be exercised. Bloomberg’s tenure as Mayor of New York is a good example of local government setting it’s own course. A return to an updated version of the kind of mixed and planned economies that came into being in most developed countries following the Depression and World War II bringing hitherto unknown levels of prosperity to millions, is what’s needed now. It only came about then as a result of the suffering and sacri¿ces undergone by entire populations so that traditional elites were compelled to share national wealth more fairly. Indeed they came to accept that capitalism works better this way. Essentially this meant adequate housing, education, health and old age care for all. The political consensus of right and left understood how the extremes of capitalism and socialism had been disastrous failures. That is not what is happening today. Those days are gone. Without really bad times things revert and narrow self-interest re-asserts itself. It is not just that we are living in an ecologically unsustainable way – we are living in a socially unsustainable way. I don’t know, we may be able to muddle through, but it doesn’t look good as things are. Change is coming whether we want it or not. For us to make a difference we need to re-engage in ways that count. We can beat this thing. We have the means; all that’s missing is the political will. That will only happen when we make it happen. Practising punitive shopping is a nice start. Better yet, vote and make it count. No, not here, back where you came from. You’re entitled to and you don’t have to live there if you don’t want to. Take the trouble, do.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Tell me about Balinese traditional singing – Part IV The final and most serious category of Balinese singing is called kekawin. Also known as Sekar Agung (big flower) or wirama, these are long songs used to accompany many Hindu rituals such as weddings, tooth filings and death rites. Kekawin are taken from a number of Hindu literary sources such as the Ramayana and Mahabharata epics etc. Kekawin is a very important art-form for the Balinese because they don’t only represent a direct connection to their Hindu roots in India, but the songs also carry a moral and often religious message. However, kekawin is sung in ancient Javanese (Kawi) which few people understand; this is why there the lyrics are translated by another person. Kekawin is normally sung solo accompanied by one translator and the duo sit cross legged at a large, wide tray called a dulang that in this context is used as a low table. As with other forms of Balinese singing and gamelan music, the notation is in Balinese script (aksara Bali). However, from one form of singing to another the notation differs slightly. This art-form doesn’t accompany gamelan music melodies like kidung or pupuh; nor is it sung in syllabic form. It’s composed based on the number of words in each stanza. Kekawin songs are more like stories and they are read either directly from a palm leaf manuscript or from a transcription in regular book form. People who want to be able to master this art-form have to be able to read Balinese script very well which involves complicated rules. Due to the serious nature of the art-form as well as the difficultly in reading the manuscripts, these days there are few young Balinese who are interested in learning kekawin.

We have Mercury retrograde and a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this fortnight, along with a Grand Fire Trine between Jupiter, Uranus and Mars. Mercury who has briefly touched into Scorpio territory will return to Libra this fortnight and retrace it’s steps all the way back to 17 Libra. Uranus joins the Full Moon, along with the Node of the Moon (South Node Aries) and will oppose the Sun. Venus and the North Node Point, all in Libra. Jupiter in Leo harmoniously trines the Aries Moon stellium and Venus is closely squared to Pluto. There could be some relationship upsets this coming month; possibly endings that will make way for new partnerships and meetings with people from the past to resolve old issues or power/manipulation struggles. The feminine push for equality, fairness and justice is strong and Jupiter is pushing for Truth and changes based on the revelation of that same Truth. There is an abrupt, aggressive, assertive and chaotic feel to this lunar eclipse and will set in motion the events that will now lead us into the next Pluto/Uranus square in mid-December. There could be a false sense of optimism in the haste to move forward with these changes and yet if we temper it all with patience and a little investigation we can go even deeper into our transformative process and leave those aspects of the past behind that are well and truly dead. This is not a time to be carrying old resentments, fears and grudges with you as you pioneer new territory and partnerships. FULL MOON 15 Aries 04 October 8, 2014 6:50 p.m. (Total Lunar Eclipse)

This is a very powerful time for the Aries natives, with the Full Moon occurring in your sign and the Mercury retrograde in the house of others. It feels like you want to break free of everything that is limiting you and create a new persona for yourself as you are tired of the old you and the relationships that have been holding you back or down. There will be a strong impulse to end them this fortnight and to move out of situations and places that have reached their use-by date. You want movement and a sense of freedom, perhaps travel is an attractive option. Your work will be a strong catalyst for change.

This could be an upsetting time for relationship or a time when you want to strike out independently or in an entirely new way when it comes to partnership. You are currently expressing yourself in a way that is inclusive of others and yet maintaining strong boundaries through communication. Friends and groups of people are creating the platform for sudden new introductions and the sharing of mind expanding conversations. You will be more apt to allow others their options and yet still up for a good debate on the topic and you have a lot more energy than normal and probably aspire to more intimate fiery connections.

As the Full Moon comes around you may find yourself on a deep journey of self-discovery that will change the way you relate and communicate with others. There may be issues pertaining to addiction and institutions that will provoke the need for action and transformation. You are ready for these changes and yet you still have some revision to do with regard to your work and/or partners or ex-bosses and relationships that need to be sorted. The feminine issues are also highlighted within the work/ service arena and perhaps legal issues to attend to or even the possibility of marriage. Nurture yourself.

The Sun and Venus are hanging out in your 12th house, which could lead to a little hidden romance. If this is so for you, you may be forced to bring it out into the open around the Full Moon. A lot of energy is being put into making money at the moment and this will benefit both the work that you are currently doing and your career path. Inventive new changes may strike suddenly and this could affect anything that may have lain hidden within past or current relationships or partnerships. Whatever it is that leaves during the next month will open the way ahead for your soul’s journey.

You seem to be in a mood for a little romance and dare I say sexual involvement with another. I would use this Full Moon to get out and socialise within the community and with friends. There could be some group activities that will open up new relationships for you and help you to access parts of yourself that have lain dormant for a while. There is a lot of transformative energy available for you to access your own creativity and feminine attributes. Don’t worry as there will be plenty of time to assimilate all of this with the Mercury retrograde. You are learning so much about other people now and are finding your own voice.

You will feel like being out amongst it all this month and opportunities to network and connect are plentiful. A sudden romance is also on the cards, along with inventive and creative adventures. Mars in your sign and first house trining your ruler up in the 9th brings a great deal of movement and possible overseas travel and adventure. You are getting to review any group involvement that you’ve had including financial and this could bring about the need to let-go or end certain situations. You are making way for a new creative process that will bring changes to the way you express yourself.

It’s career and work issues that are significantly activated this fortnight and you are looking to take action and go for change in your financial standing and your status in the World. This is a time to branch out and be your individual self and there will be significant meetings to assist you. Your home is looking like a hot area of activity as well with the retrograde affecting communication there and also Venus who is squared off to Pluto in your relationship house. Endings with women who impact your personal comfort zone are highlighted. This could be the time for you to speak up about any unfairness you are feeling.

The Full Moon is eclipsed in your 4th house and marks a beginning with regards to your home or childhood issues or those you nurture in your life. With the Sun in your career sector through October along with the Mercury retrograde you are assessing your career choices and reworking some of your business plans. This is another deeply transformative month and you have the opportunity to release a lot of old programming as you employ techniques to expand your awareness. You could have the good fortune of receiving some kind of windfall or inheritance and this will support now those new business ventures or career change.

Long and short distance travel are on your mind as the Full Moon swings around this fortnight. You may receive news from overseas friends or ex-lovers that will propel you into romantic and poetic action. You are feeling very confident at this time and may find it easier than normal to step out of your comfort zone. Just remember to have a little of that patience I was mentioning before you branch out too rashly. There is a lot of impulsivity in the air and as a fire sign with Jupiter in your sign you could be prone to hasty decision making. This is a great time to go over your communication skills and to continue to study new topics.

This could be the beginning of a period of more travel, certainly more mental agility and quick thinking is yours and there will be more movement in your everyday life. This Full Moon highlights communication; meanwhile the Sun and Mercury are reviewing any legal or marketing contracts you have in process. This is the time for expanding your relationships and friendships within your local community and possibly participating in group activities aimed at humanitarian causes or goodwill projects. You could simply enjoy the company of friends for social get together as well. Any hidden feminine issues may rise to the surface around this powerful moon time as well.

Your themes this fortnight are centred on money, yours and other peoples; transformation and partnership agreements. You are going to find some very inventive ways to market yourself while you inwardly discover more of your creative talent. Changes need to occur around the home or there will simply be a lot going on in your home. Opportunities through past partnerships are going to promote some deeper insights and you will get the revision in the area of material acquisition throughout October. You are on a steady learning curve that is taking you into deep territories of the mind. Enjoy the ride!

With the Full Moon in your 2nd house of personal possessions and acquisitions, you may find yourself the proud owner of some new belongings as the Sun polarizes events in the 8th house of endings. It could be a case of out with the old and in with new and this could pertain to relationships in your life as well. With Mars in the career sector things are bound to heat up on that front as you take on a new identity with regard to the work/service that you do in the world. The strong feminine connection comes through your local environment or community and powerful female relationships could reshape your life and circle of friendships.

Without Advertising a Terrible Thing Happens ................


Fashion TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia by Bill Dalton

Saraswati in Bali by Ron Jenkins The theme of the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival this year is the goddess Saraswati. With over 150 writers from 25 countries in attendance, it’s only appropriate to review a unique new publication devoted entirely to this beloved patron of learning and the arts, a inspiration figure for many artists. An embodiment of the divine feminine in Hindu mythology, Saraswati is the guardian of culture, science, music, religion, history, wisdom and knowledge. The etymological derivation of Saraswati is found in the Old Javanese words sara (weapon), swa (line) and ti (behavior), meaning that the goddess is a source of knowledge that serves as a weapon to guide behavior along a positive path. Put another way, knowledge must be used to uncover the truth and confront the past. Although Saraswati is fervently revered all over Bali, she is worshipped with particular ardor in artistic communities such as Peliatan, two km east of Ubud, the “village of dancers,” where the performing arts for decades have played an all-important role. Though ceremonies, performances and palm leaf texts dedicated to the goddesses occur all over the island, this writer closely examines Peliatan’s Pura Madya temple and the nearby ARMA museum as independent institutions where the wisdom of Saraswati is put into action for the benefit of the community. The author has narrowed his focus on one specific village within a relatively small geographic area. Thus its traditions can be more easily observed and followed and interviews with villagers more easily arranged. Because of this intense focus, the ways in which the veneration of Saraswati affects the lives of the villagers has been thorough and minutely researched. It would have been a near impossible task to chronicle the innumerable and varied ways in which the goddess is interpreted all over Bali. A brief, excellent history explains the artistic tradition of Peliatan where distinctive celebrations peculiar only to the village’s Pura Madya are observed: mintonin (a spiritual test), mecaru (a cleansing ceremony) and melasti (a purification walk to the sea). The most spectacular is mendak, a 7-km-long procession between Peliatan and Tegallalang that takes place every year in which men, women and children dressed in colorful ceremonial attire clang gongs, beat drums and carry banners and huge sticks of incense retrace the steps of a nobleman who helped negotiate an historic peace treaty between two feuding brothers of the Sukawati royal family in the18th century. The author interviews more than a dozen dance instructors, priests, clowns, puppeteers, painters, princes, mask carvers, all authorities in their respective fields, about their feelings for Saraswati. During his fieldwork, which dates back to 1976, the author frequently quotes these practitioners, but the primary source of his information is Agung Rai, the director of ARMA, who is quoted extensively throughout the book in a more or less continuous long running interview. Jenkins is part researcher, part student, part participant. Always an eager listener, he follows Agung Rai around the ARMA museum, tags along with him on car rides, falls in behind him on his daily ceremonial routines, all the while posing questions. An ambassador of the arts for more than 30 years, Agung Rai articulately and knowledgeably holds forth on painting, dance, puppetry and cockfights, always interjecting a reference the ways in which Saraswati influences the proceedings. The unique contributions of ARMA are dealt with extensively. Not just an innovative museum but a dynamic all-inclusive cultural center with exhibits, conference hall, art gallery, performing stage, bookshop, boutique, reference

library, Thai restaurant, coffee shop, tourist resort and rice fields all spread over six hectares. Free dance, music and painting lessons are given to children from all over Bali. The facility is no less than a depository of Bali’s collective cultural memory. A large statue of Saraswati stands at the entrance. In her four arms, the goddess holds objects that symbolize the types of knowledge that she propagates: palm leaf manuscript (literature), stringed musical instrument (music), prayer beads (the eternal nature of knowledge) and a lotus blossom (the divine nature of wisdom). Within the center’s confines one wanders through a spiritual and physical landscape of lush gardens and a variety of trees and flowers where offerings are made to the goddess every day.

The book’s impromptu earthy photographs depart from your usual brochure-style Photoshopped images and bring the rarefied subject matter down to earth and give the book more the appearance of a photo essay than an academic treatise: kids in the backstage of a puppet performance; masked dancers mingling with the audience; a boisterous melasti parade to the sea; rapturous gamelan players; women and school children making offerings; a magnificent 1-m-high floral arrangement made from colored rice flour; a huddle of Balinese purifying themselves under a thundering waterfall; a close-up of the bejeweled hands of a priest; elderly poised dance instructors; farmers toiling in mud. A vivid blow-by-blow illustrated description of a cockfight shows how these ritual combats serve as a practical education in economics, understanding human nature and how to conduct oneself in public. Saraswati in Bali is not just about the history and significance of Saraswati in the religion and rich culture of the Balinese. It’s also a study of iconic art forms, priestly rituals, temple observations, ancient legends and the place the high gods Shiva, Vishnu and Durga play in the daily life of the people. Dance dramas like the legend of Calonarang and cleansing the sacred Barong mask, which take place island-wide, testify as to how enduring and powerful classic Balinese literature still is. The book is also a catalog of the selected works – 32 in all - in the ARMA museum. Masterpieces by I Gusti Ketut Kobot, Ida Bagus Made, I Bagus Made Nadera, I Gusti Lempad, Walter Spies and Affandi represent a variety of themes, styles and schools of painting. Be prepared for occasional passages of turgid prose that one would more expect from a university press rather than a trade publication. At times the text drones on a bit too long about the interpretation of sacred lontar verses, the finer points of the Tri Hita Karana philosophy, the minutiae of penasar comic narration in wayang kulit plays and the abstract mysteries of how aksara syllables correspond to different parts of the human body. Little is left out of the scope of this ambitious extended essay, which often attains an esoteric air as it seeks to touch upon nearly every noteworthy facet of Balinese civilization.

But this all-encompassing permeating embrace of every aspect of Saraswati’s involvement in the life of the Balinese is also the book’s strength. The best parts are when the writer immerses himself in and narrates his own experiences, walks in processions, attends cockfights, witnesses ceremonies and performances, visits humble family compounds or ducks backstage during a wayang performance, producing in the end not a stuffy, abstruse intellectual exercise of an erudite anthropologist or musicologist, but a detailed, well documented first-hand ground-level observation of Balinese cultural traditions.

BE CHOCOLAT by Michel Clement

Ah there’s a new chocolate shop on the scene, called BE CHOCOLAT and the goodies inside are positively delicious, chocolate is addictive, it’s moorish and when you stand in this tiny shop, with your eyes wide open in astonishment you will feel compelled to keep adding more of their wondrous selection of chocolate to your little basket provided. Michel originally from Belgium (a country renowed for chocolate) and his charming wife Titus from Barcelona came to Bali following their children, and like many before them spied an opportunity, this is all it takes; the right idea, hard work and perserverence. BE CHOCOLAT was born ¿ve months back, a cute little shop on the very busy ‘back road’ to Canggu, but it’s easy to spot, part of a small group of shops on the right side of the road, just before you arrive at the well known eco resort Desa Seni. As soon as you push open the door, chocolate permeates the air, a huge countertop of trays ¿lled with assorted little lovelies, a feast for your eyes. <ou immediately hone in for a sample taste; dark, milk or white, and there’s plenty of it to thrill your tastebuds. The cacao bean is the hero, one of nature’s most potent antioxidant foods and the staple of all chocolate products. The cacao beans are found inside the pulp of the cacao fruit pod. BE CHOCOLAT source their dark cacao from West Africa, whereas the lighter bean is from Java. Milk or white chocolate are often mixed with cream to form what is known as a ganache which can be used to ¿ll a chocolate trufÀe, those little balls of deliciousness, just pop one into your mouth, yum! take another and just one more! Michel tells me the best sellers are trufÀes and slabs of chocolate which have been mixed with either a ¿ne bisTuet or crispy rice mix, you should try both, addictive! Dark chocolate is the favorite for western palates (a little is regarded as healthy) whereby the milk and white chocolate are sweeter and much loved by the local fraternity. Nuts & dried fruit feature as popular chocolate offerings; almonds, hazelnuts and cashews covered in a ¿ne coat of chocolate & what looks so decorative are the slices of orange or ginger that have been half dipped in chocolate. Chocolate treats await for upcoming Halloween, Christmas, St Valentines, Easter and the rest. Both Michel and Titus love to present clever seasonal ideas for you to enjoy and present to others, little offerings for those you love! There are chocolate buttons on sticks or go for the strawberry half dipped in chocolate, a special treat for anyone…particularly for children. What about a heart shaped birthday surprise; a rich chocolate mousse cake with a piece of chocolate atop complete with scrolled message, so chic! For your next home gathering order BE CHOCOLAT mousse for dessert or serve up a bowl of exotic fruit pieces, take a stick and dip into chocolate sauce. Enjoy a break with a Fruit & Chocolate mix at their shop, plenty of seating outside area (overhead cover) to indulge your taste buds, a yummy alternative instead of that piece of cake! Even for a corporate gift idea, choose one of three box sizes, add your company logo and there you have it, a nifty gift idea for who you wish to impress! BE CHOCOLAT serve icy cold chocolate smoothies, there’s the Drink of the Gods, a strong sensation for chocolate lovers inspired by an original Aztez recipe or a super Expresso to wash down all that chocolate you have just sampled (and paid for!) This enterprising couple have now set up their ¿rst license agreement in Barcelona, so who knows, where next?!

Ubud Area UBUD SPICY MEMORIES Ten years since my ¿rst visit to Sanur’s Warung Mak Beng for her ¿ery, spicy, delicious “lunch set”. One bowl of chili ¿sh head soup (¿rst time I’d tasted cucumber in a soup; such a great idea), one extra crispy piece of still-kicking-fresh local ¿sh, the best sambal – locals are aghast when I eat it with a teaspoon – and a bowl of rice, washed down with es jeruk (fresh orange drink). So it’s gotta be ten years too since the ¿rst time one of my good friends, Pak Rama, took me for a drive to see the island. Thanks Rama for the introduction to Mak Beng’s, and all the help you’ve given me since. Call Rama for island tours and drives around Ubud on 0822 363 32943. Warung Mak Beng, Jl. Hang Tuah no. 45, Sanur. SUPPORT EMERGING ARTISTS Heyokah Art House in Jl Andong has a one-month international kickstarter campaign to raise funds for helping artists. Less than a year old, this busy, welcoming art space does a lot to support emerging Indonesian and Balinese artists, raising money via great art exhibitions and a variety of art classes. The kickstarter campaign offers a variety of great rewards for donors at various levels, including free sculptures, ceramics, acrylic and oil paintings, and art lessons. Head to, search “Heyokah Art House”, donate whatever you can, and forward the info to friends, please. P: 0821 4427 7901. North on Jl Andong, on the right near the petrol station. SPA, 1; CUSTOMER, 1 On the other hand, a young Canadian couple received great customer service, after a misunderstanding about the cost of transport. They chose to book a massage at Kori Ubud Resort Spa, partly because Kori also has a swimming pool to relax in after a treatment, and partly because the reception staff had said “we can pick you up” (they assumed free of charge). When they called to make a booking, they found out they’d have to pay, thus doubling their cost. Only minutes later there was a polite call back, from the spa’s manager; he’d like to give them a VIP massage, with no charge for the driver, and an apology for any misunderstanding. The massage was wonderful and the pool pretty ¿ne on a hot day too. People don’t need a lot. A good product or service, correction for errors, apology where it’s owed and being treated like a someone who matters, not like a number or a wallet. Kori , Jl Raya Sanggingan, south of Naughty Nuri’s. T: +62 361 972487; E: WINGING IT? An Aussie ex-pat returned to Bali from visiting the Bumi Sehat youth centre project, in the tiny coastal town of Sama Tiga, Aceh. Leaving her friends there at 9am, she Àew from Meulaboh with Wings/ Lion Air, via Medan Sumatra and then Jakarta, where she knew she had to check-in again, on a separate Wings ticket to Bali. Wings allows 10 kg, Lion 15, so she had to pay extra luggage TWICE with same airline. Each leg was delayed over an hour, and – you guessed it – they had lost her luggage by


Bumi Bali



Jakarta. So she reported it, and checked in again with no luggage. After another hour’s tarmac wait, she arrived in Bali at 11.30pm, home in Ubud by 1am.

Balinese Restaurant & Cooking School Serving only specialty Balinese food despite complex blending of spices and fragrant roots that give Balinese food its intriguingly different flavor. Monkey Forest Road, Ubud Bali Phone (0361) 976 698 E : C/U/I-03 Sept 14

A day later, Wings rang. The bags were found and were on their way to Ubud. But …. the baggage was overweight, remember. No “We’re sorry for losing your bags for 30 hours”, just, “You owe us money”. Too staggered to protest (and conscious that the bags were yet to appear), she agreed. So Wings/ Lion 1: Customer 0. WHO’S WHO CAFÉ Tom has opened a little resto called Who’s Who in Ubud – a town hardly big enough, among this muddled mix of spiritual searchers and attention-seeking extroverts, to have a “who’s who”. But as far as what’s what, their menu is excellent and the smiling wait team really knows its stuff!

C/U/I-01 Oct. 14

We had a super delicious tom yum – de¿nitely made from scratch and with a delicious stock as base – for less than 30,000rp, followed by a black shrimp (think scampi or yabby) dish with a light herb and celery-based sauce and tiny new potatoes poached in the broth. Madness, but we were too full to try the caramel and vanilla panna cotta dessert, which we’d already heard was fab. Going south after Casa Taco, look for the sign on left/ go down lane to Lili’s House, opposite the ever-awesome Goddess on the Go. KEEP DENGUE-FREE Mozzies never travel more than 300 meters from where they hatch, humans travel and carry disease with them. So the dengue virus, like malaria, spreads. Ubud clinics are reporting cases of dengue at the moment and it’s seriously NOT a disease you want anyone in your family to catch. If you are travelling, make sure you wear insect repellant, even under your yoga pants (!) both day and evening, reapply when sweat or rain washes it off, and sleep under a mosquito net. C/U/G-14 May 14

The tropical dengue-carrying mosquito is an “urban-dweller” – liking to hatch its larvae into small bodies of still water – ponds, stagnant drains, inside that old car tyre, half-full buckets – near to or inside houses, and once it’s Àying, will rest mostly within buildings, under tables in dark corners etc., feeding during the day as well as at night. If you are living here, or want to offer suggestions with your hosts, you can help reduce dengue-friendly habitats. If you catch the disease – most common symptoms are blinding headache behind the eyes and high fever – go to Toyo or Ubud Clinic to get platelet levels tested and drink lots of water. A CIDER INSIDE YA Last time I went back to Oz, every bar and restaurant seemed to have a couple of “boutique” ciders – I remember a delicious apple and pomegranate version. In the past, I’ve only had one shocker super sickly sweet version here in Ubud. Now I can happily make a recommendation for Ubud restaurants, bars and cafes that support local and Indonesian products. Stock local Albens sparkling cider; it is crisp and fresh. “Pressed from hand-selected apples and naturally matured; 4.9% alcohol”. Yep, they’ve got it right. Not sure where to buy it wholesale, but both Bintang and Delta stock it – in soft drink section.

Unicef Charity Event (31 October) This event is scheduled nicely to coincide with Halloween. If you do not feel like doing the usual Halloween stuff then this is a great alternative. The UNICEF charity event encompasses a concert featuring up and coming Indonesian stars. As winner of Indonesian Idol 2014, Papuan born Nowela Sihombing is bound to rise to fame quickly with her amazing voice. What is great is the fact that she is part of this concert to raise funds for children. Joining her is Petra Sihombing enjoying hits high up in the Indonesian charts. The two stars will meet guests and fans at Prego, the Italian Restaurant at the Westin Resort followed by an interactive sharing session and high tea. The high tea includes delicious treats both sweet and savoury. The main event will follow with solo performances by both singers. Children chosen from leading musical schools in Bali will join Nowela and Petra Sihombing for a musical number. Limited places are available for the musical rendezvous so do call soon to reserve your place. All proceeds from this event will be donated to UNICEF who are supporting educational opportunities and vaccines for children across the Asia Paci¿c Region. I know that people and organisations in Bali and Indonesia are doing amazing fundraisers for local communities. These communities are fortunate to have that help but so often that are children in need in far Àung places and it is great to see that this money will make a difference to the children in need around the region. The UNICEF Check Out for Children Program has supported the immunization of thousands of young women and children against several preventable diseases. This is going to be a very special evening and worth attending and supporting such a worthy cause so call and reserve your place as soon as possible.

Innovative Mexican! AriBar has followed the trend. Mexican cuisine was all the rage in Bali in the 1990’s but then almost disappeared [with the exception of good old TJ’s] over the past decade. Now they are re-appearing all over Bali, from Canggu to Ubud, and all points in between. AriBar is one of the better ones, operated by industry professionals rather than just enthusiastic hobbyists. Amazing good value as well! However what is interesting about this one is that many of the dishes, whilst following strict Mexican cuisine rules, are very different from what is available elsewhere. Located at the front of The Bali Garden Beach Resort [where Ryoshi used to be, who are now moved to the street-front row of small restaurants and cafes, 100 metres away] the decor is typical Mex, as is the food, but with a few sly touches, here and there. Start with a variety of finger food. Corn on the cob is simply char-grilled, street style, but with cheese, chipotle [smokefried jalapeno chilli], mayonnaise and lime. The Chicken Wings are hot and spicy and of course there are Nachos, crisp tortilla chips topped with chilli con carne and cheese, served with guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream. A surprise was the amazing little Corn Cakes [pictured], their centre is 100% corn, the patty crumbed and fried, topped with guacamole, pico de gallo [fresh uncooked salad mix of tomato, onion, peppers, etc] and a small slab of crisp pork belly. Sometime it is the simplest of dishes that can command your attention and stay in the memory….these I could eat all day. The Tostaditas [4 per serving board] include traditional and experimental. Vegetarian [sweet corn, black bean, cheese, jalapeno and salsa verde], Prawn [marinated and combined with guacamole, mango salsa and orange sauce], Duck [braised and combined with bell peppers, feta cheese and tamarind mayonnaise], Goat [braised with pico de gallo, red chilli, mint and jalapeno sauce] and Pork Cheek [slow braised with cilantro and jalapeno with chipotle mayonnaise]. I tried the Duck Tostaditas and thought they were great, the duck though shredded after the braising still retained its full flavour and the accompanying bits were perfectly matched.

The unusual choice of meats, and their tastiest cuts, is a feature of the menu here. Local pork and goat in particular are often served in Bali restaurants as tough slabs of meat that are almost inedible. At AriBar the meats are slow braised for up to 4 hours, resulting in tender and tasty meat, but still at budget prices. Fajitas can be chicken, beef or prawn. All served on a flat piece of tortilla with bell peppers, onion, pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream. Burritos [chicken or beef] are soft tortillas rolled around Mexican rice, re-fried beans, guacamole, pico de gallo. sour cream and shredded lettuce]. The Enchilladas are stuffed with chicken or beef and topped with a chilli tomato sauce. Different entrees, with a bit of imagination, include King Prawns, the meat grilled on toast with garlic and almond verde sauce. Pork Belly, on just about every menu in Bali, is braised and topped with pickled onions, cream sauce and fried parsley. Salads can be the very Mexican Jicama [yam beans] with mango, black bean, bell peppers, tortilla chips and an orange dressing. The Baby Octopus Salad is more Mediterranean, with lettuce, spring onions, sweet corn, feta cheese and an oregano herb dressing. Tacos and Quesadillas can be ordered individually. The Taco is a crisp shell that does not shatter at first bite. Standard Tacos [beef, prawn, fish or pork cheek] or something different, Chipotle Carne Asada, consists of marinated sirloin with coriander, caramelized onion and pico de gallo. The excellent tortilla Quesadillos can be stuffed with chicken, prawns, pork cheek, goat or just vegetables. Combined with a sauce with a bit of a bite, they are very good. Mains, if you can handle one after all the traditional starters, are fairly simple, Burgers [Beef with pineapple, jalapeno and cheese or Baja Chicken, spicy fillet with red bell pepper, guacamole, onion and grilled pineapple]. The Rubbed Pork Fillet [pre rubbed with spices and herbs] is served with a wow walnut and tequila raisin sauce. Honey Ribs are with a chilli sauce. Desserts are international apart from the Mexican Churros, served with cinnamon sugar, chocolate sauce on the side. Mexican at Kuta prices rather than the trendy café ones, surprisingly cheap and from a very professional hygienic kitchen, all served with a smile …amazingly good value! Arriba, arriba!

01 October - 15 October, 2014

Update Lola at L Hotel [’L’ for love] has had a facelift. This mezzanine restaurant on Raya Petitenget,

Kerobokan is now air-conditioned and specializes in Indonesia’s local cuisine with dishes from all over the archipelago. Start with all time favourite Jakarta ‘betawi’ street food, Asinan Jakarta, crisp vegetables wrapped in rice paper after being drizzled with palm sugar, served on a carpaccio of pineapple. Equally as refreshing is the Salada Mangga Udang, a salad of prawns and mango with a chilli lime and coconut dressing. Perkedels are common on menus but this one is a Perkedel Kepiting, crab cake with dabu-dabu sauce [spicy, from Manado]. The sampling plate of starters is a good option. The mains continue the all over Indonesia trend. Naturally there are Satays, Mie and Nasi Goreng available but also Bali’s Ayam Bumbu Kecap, chicken pieces wok-fried in sweet soy, and for those who want a bit more heat, Sapi Asam Pedas, grilled tenderloin of beef that has been pre-marinated, a sauce of tamarind and chilli. Seafood can be Grilled Mahi-Mahi ot Snapper Fillet perfectly steamed the Asian way [pictured] that retains all the flavour, served on sauteed bok choy, mushroom and ginger. For dessert Bali’s Bubur Injin, black sticky rice pudding with coconut milk or Kue Labu, pumpkin cake. From everwhere is Dadar Gulung that chocolate crepe with caramelized banana, tamarillo sauce and vanilla ice cream or the more unusual Tiga Cita Rasam, a pudding of coconut, vanilla and pandanus. An intimate little dining room, with style!

Star Apple has been open on Jln. Batu Belig, Kerobokan for some months now but surprisingly I have only just discovered it. Part owner Ray Moore was an integral part of David Thompson’s success story in Sydney, beginning with the original Darley Street Thai [where I used to dine, a couple of times a week] then running the front-of-house when David set up Sailors Thai in Sydney’s Rocks area. Not surprisingly a few of David Thompson’s favourite dishes are on the menu here at Star Apple. A vegetarian version of his Ha Mor [pineapple or mandarin segments topped with crushed peanuts, tempe and palm sugar paste] is on the menu as is David’s famous Egg Nets, a net of egg wrapped around a filling of prawns, shallots and sprouts, all drizzled with tamarind sauce. Whilst there are many great Thai dishes on this menu there are also a few other Aussie favorites from neighbouring cuisines including a version of the Cantonese San Choy Bow [a crisp lettuce leaf is used to wrap around a mix of grilled minced chicken laced with hoisin, messy but nice!] and Curry Puffs, these ones are vegetarian with sweet potato, lime leaves and nahm jim. Vegetarians are well catered for, but it is veggie with taste; Salad of red kidney beans, roasted pumpkin with a lemon zest dressing, Dahl with capsicum chutney, beetroot relish and roti and Vegetarian Spring Rolls Malay style [Poppiah] with hoisin dipping sauce. Amazingly in this expensive area Star Apple is still very budget priced, a clean little three-in-one restaurant [inside air-con, street terrace and smoking lounge]. Friendly service from both the owners and the young enthusiastic staff, fun dining with taste! I will soon be back for more. Romeo’s is an open terrace restaurant at Ossotel on Jln Padma Utara, Legian. Whilst the hotel name openly suggests that it has been aimed at the Australian market so too has the cleverly designed menu at Romeo’s that contains many of the favourite dishes of Australia’s surburbia, the market that Ossotel has targeted. TV screens around the wall with sporting content and late evening live entertainment all add to the equation, perfect for some, a deterrent to others. Snacks abound; Salads, Sandwiches [ham & cheese or steak], Pasta [bolognese, carbonara or marinara] and Hamburgers and other things [chicken burrito]. Australia’s favourite Pizza is there [ham & pineapple, called a Hawaiian in OZ] and the universal Fish & Chips. From the BBQ there are steaks, chops, prawns and chicken or a monster Mixed Grill for 2. Other mains include Wiener Schnitzel, pan-seared John Dory, Duck & Pumpkin Ravioli and an unusual Green Curry Prawn Pot Pie with a pastry topping. A Family Roast can be ordered for 5-6 people; Pork Loin, Chicken or Lamb Leg. The prices are quite reasonable and in keeping with the market and this area.

C/R/G - 1 Oct. 14

Room 4 Dessert is a daring experiment, a restaurant just for desserts [+ cocktails]. It is found on Jln. Sanginggan, north-west of Ubud, in a renovated version of the site that once housed the late night OZIGO, and later the failed Bricks. Will Goldfarb was the pastry chef at Ku de ta, but has now taken up the challenge to do what no one so far has ever before been game to try! A dessert only restaurant [and only 9 choices at that] certainly limits your chances, particularly in a tourist town and on this road that has already seen so many failures, even big name ones who were previously established elsewhere. However with desserts such as Black Rice Pudding with rambutan, passion and chia seeds, Rum Soaked Brioche with milk jam, snakefruit ice and cashew nutella, and Armagnac refined camembert, langsat ‘raisin’ no-knead ciabatta, kemangi pesto and rosella he is certainly stretching the boundaries. Prefer something simple? There is always the Crème Brulee, just traditional and plain vanilla. Elsewhere is now open for Brunch! This small restaurant on Jln. Danau Poso, Sanur, is rapidly growing in stature as more people discover its interesting and innovative dishes. Fronted by young Aussie chef Brad Harrison, he tries to produce healthy cuisine offerings, but they are never bland. Brunch is from 10.00 till 4.00 from when the dinner menu takes over. For brunch you can have a traditional breakfast or a Breakfast Bap [fried egg, bacon, salsa, hash brown and hollandaise served in a hamburger bun] or go breakfast Vietnamese style with Banh Xeo, the Vietnamese pancake, stuffed with chili lime chicken [or ginger beef], bean sprouts, crisp lettuce, coriander, mint, chili, spring onion, pickled veg, peanuts, fried shallot and nahm jim. All Day Burgers include the amazing Black Burger, a beef patty with bacon, iceberg lettuce, onion, cheese, tomato and salsa served in Elsewhere’s unique black burger bun [black from bamboo charcoal which is supposedly a great body de-tox]. Other luncheon dishes include Aglio e Olio Pasta with crispy pork belly [or Chicken] tossed with chili, garlic, sun-dried tomato, fresh herbs, parmesan and their Pan Seared Fish of the Day [or Chicken Fillet] served with a green salad, mash puree [or French fries] and lemon butter sauce. All at those budget prices and served with a smile.

Trattoria struggled on Jln. Raya Sanginggan, Ubud, a street as difficult to succeed on as Sunset Road and The ByPass, and they have not been the only ones as many other failures preceded them, from both those who also had previously well established credentials and others who were just enthusiastic beginners. Amazingly, Trattoria has now moved to an even more difficult location, hidden away in Nyuh Kuning, in behind the Monkey Forest. Ten years ago Ubud lacked an Italian restaurant of any kind, let alone a good one. Now there are many Italian restaurants although as with Trattoria Pizza and Pasta are the main offerings. Trattoria certainly wins the ‘biggest pizza menu’ competition, but now in 2014 Ubud has 11 ‘Italian’ restaurants and another 13 that offer pizzas. As with most cuisines in Bali probably the best will succeed, the rest perish. But with 24 offering pizzas it is certain that some good ones will unfortunately fall out with the bad. When Trattoria first opened on Jln, Laksmana, Kerobokan, along with Mykonos, 12 years ago, it heralded the arrival of Eat Street, simple good value food, no frills or fuss, just what Bali had been looking for.

Restaurant Review Class on a Tropical Island!

By Gerry Williams


: Karma Beach Club.


: Karma Resort, Gili Meno, Lombok.


: (0361) 473.8564.


: 09.00 a.m. to 11.00 p.m., daily.


: Rp. 800,000 for two [+ drinks]

Credit Cards

: All major cards.

The range of Sushi also suits the location and is once again something not generally available elsewhere in Lombok, and all prepared fresh every day. All the styles are here; Californian Rolls as well as Nigiri and Sashimi. Take the easy option and just order the Karma Oishi Plate and share 2 rolls, 6 nigiri and 6 sashimi, sip some bubbly and then order another plate of same.


: International.


: Good list.


: Relaxed, with style.

Now Lombok gets into the act with their fantastic Karma Beach Club on the south-eastern shores of Gili Meno, where you can dine, beach-side, overlooking neighbouring Gili Air, the island of Lombok stretched across the horizon.


: White sand, blue waters.

A popular pastime is to order a Bucket of Prawns, chilled on dry ice, with maybe as few freshly shucked oysters on the side.


: Better than the rest!

Lombok’s Karma Beach Club is located at the soon to be rebranded Karma Beach Resort [formerly The Royal Bungalows], bringing luxury of a different level to this magical tropical island.

Keeping to the Mediterranean flavour Pizzas are also available, in traditional or innovative mode; BBQ Duck and Goat Cheese, Gorgonzola and Chorizo, Spiced Baja Chicken and Basil Pesto, Pineapple and Smoked Bacon or a couple of local versions [Satay Chicken & Tofu and BBQ Beef with Bali’s Sambal Matah].

Karma Beach Club is something different. It all started with the opening of the Nammos Beach Club at Karma Kandara, Uluwatu, on Bali’s southern shores, 10 years ago. Using the same basic plan Karma Beach Clubs have since opened in Fiji and The Bahamas.

Begin your feast with a Watermelon Gazpacho, chilled with a drop of extra virgin olive oil and fresh crab meat or pretend you are on the Mediterranean [very easy to do] and enjoy a very traditional Salade Nicoise, grilled tuna tossed with green beans, potato, tomato, cucumber, olives, red onion and boiled egg, drizzled with French dressing. The location is well suited to snacking or just nibbling, whilst sipping cocktails or even some French bubbly. Those so inclined are well looked after. A Mezze Plate of hummus, babaganoush, spicy harissa, an olive tapenade and pita bread [still warm, straight from the kitchen], or maybe a simple plate of French Fries but with a truffle mayonnaise and sea salt to lift them to this level. Salads suit the beach, all the usual ones are here plus a few specials; Aragula & Pumpkin [with Spanish onion, Parma ham and a vinaigrette of feta and balsamic], Roasted Rainbow Beet [with baby Romaine lettuce, walnut and shallot cider

vinaigrette, sprinkled with Parmesan], Watermelon and Feta [sweet basil dressing], Ahi Tuna [with oven-dried tomatoes, roasted garlic, grilled Portobello Mushrooms, feta cheese and a vinaigrette made from aged red wine] or just a simple salad of Fennel, Tomato, Radish and Orange.

More formal dining is also a possibility, select from the wide range of small plates, good for sharing. King Prawns [in a San Miguel batter with a dip of paprika and lemon mayonnaise], Crumbed Chicken Breast [roasted garlic mayonnaise], Butterfly King Scampi [sautéed in chilli and garlic infused oil], Vongole [with angel hair pasta and clams] or a Lamb Risotto. There is always a full range of fresh seafood, simply grilled to order including both lobster and crayfish. Platters of mixed seafood are great for sharing. Desserts are fairly basic but after that feast maybe just a scoop or two of their wonderful homemade butterscotch ice cream may suffice. That the quality and class of dining on Gili Meno has been lifted to this level signifies the rapid maturing of the Lombok market. It is now possible to enjoy a stress-free holiday in tropical bliss without having to do away with all those luxury trappings.

Put Down that Cartridge and Back Away Slowly From the Printer

C/CI/I-6 August 14

Printing is a habit, and it can be a costly one. We print documents, emails, bills, receipts, photos and other types of files. All of these things come to us in digital form, so the trick is to realize that converting them to paper just makes it harder to manage and find them later. Many things are printed for record-keeping purposes. But the best record-keeper available may be your email server. Instead of printing a Word document or PDF, email a copy to yourself, and Gmail (or whatever email service you use) will keep it safe forever. You can also find it again with simple search, or tag it with keywords so that you can easily find all documents that relate to a given topic. If you use webmail, you have the added benefit that your important documents are stored online, and won’t be lost if your hard drive fails.


Bills, receipts, monthly statements, correspondence, jokes and pictures of cute babies will flow into your inbox. Let them stay there! Printing these things is old-school thinking, and ultimately makes it harder to find the information at a later date. When you generate a document, rather than mailing it, ask the recipient if it would be okay to “print” it to a PDF file and email it, instead of sending it to a paper-guzzling printer. Most people will actually prefer this, because it eliminates the delay of mailing. Microsoft Word supports this trick; choose Save As and then look for the PDF or XPS option on the options menu. “XPS” is a Microsoft format built into Windows. It’s inferior to PDF but there in case you need it. Any application that can print can instead save to a PDF file, using one of several free or trial ware PDF printer utilities. I have used CutePDF Writer ( and several others. Of course, Adobe Acrobat will convert almost any file format to PDF. Instead of printing something in order to fax it, try a free Internet fax service ( services.html). All of them accept either email attachments or uploads of Word, JPG, and other popular file formats and then fax them for you. Of course, you can’t control whether the recipient prints that incoming fax or not, but there are also faxto-email services that funnel your incoming faxes to your email inbox. See Free Inbound Faxing (http:// for details on that. Don’t print photos unless you are making a special gift photo album for Grandma. Just upload your digital images to Photobucket ( or a similar cloud service, and send your friends the private link to that album. A growing number of newlyweds are going that route. See Free Online Photo Storage and Sharing ( free_ online_photo_storage_and_sharing.html) for lots of options. Software and Online Services That Can Help What if you receive a document that you have to sign and return? For that, there are services like Vletter (http://www.vletter. com/ ) which will scan your handwritten signature and convert it into a Windows font that you can insert anywhere, at any size required. No more printing, signing, scanning, and emailing or faxing. You can create your own graphic image of your scanned signature and insert it into documents, too. Other online services such as Docusign ( handle the digital signature process with a completely web-based process.

It’s getting ever easier to save paper. The Chrome browser has print-to-PDF capability built into it; you can even select one page or a range of pages in a multi-page Web page after previewing it. (Use File+Print, then press the Change button to see this option.) Firefox can do likewise with a free add-on called “Print Pages to PDF.” The PDF printer emulators mentioned above work with any browser. Chrome also has a “Save to Drive” feature (accessible via the Print dialog) that saves the file currently displayed on your browser in your Google Drive cloud storage space. Internet Explorer prints to OneNote in the cloud-based version of Office. Firefox has add-ons such as Cloud Printer for Mobile and others for desktop PCs. The Evernote ( app, which I use AND love, works on just about any platform (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android) and is a convenient way to keep (and later search for) documents without having to print, file and shuffle. If you’ve got already printed pages that you’d like to store in digital format, use a scanner with OCR (optical character recognition) capability to create a searchable PDF. See Digital Scanners to the Rescue ( paperwork_with_a_scanner.html) for information on scanners and OCR software that can do this. Saving trees, time and money are three good reasons to lessen your dependence on a printer. Please try and get out of the habit of printing everything. The above lists MANY ways you can make your life easier. All you have to do it actually do it! So, please start today to use some of these methods to save trees, time, and your money!

‘Dear Dr. Kris, I was wondering if you could provide some information on how to plant succulents. I’d love to make my own succulent garden, and grow some in pots too. Will I need a special type of soil, and what are the growing conditions? Are there some easy but attractive plants to start with? I really appreciate the advice on how I can go about making this. Thankyou in advance, Di.’ A succulent garden can be a great idea especially if you only have a small garden space, or even if you only have a windowsill on which to garden! For any sized garden whether large or small, succulents can be a designers dream, and they are becoming increasingly popular. There are so many variations in colour, foliage, size and form that there are literally endless opportunities to create contrast, repetition and focal points all around the garden, on balconies or even indoors! They are best grown in a mix of direct/¿ltered sun, and some shade. Another great advantage to growing succulents outdoors is that they will survive mostly on natural rainfall or even through drought conditions. Succulents really are the plant of choice for those who like their garden to look after itself. Most have evolved with special water storage tissues that allow them to survive in environments that are too dry for most others. Always plant in a fast draining soil, and only water occasionally. The fatter or the Àeshier its leaves, the more water it stores in its tissues and the less water it needs (and will tolerate), This adaptation has resulted in an amazing variety of leaf and plant forms. Succulents thrive in dry sandy soils or even gravel, which can be mixed together and used if potting. If you have a soil full of rocks then a succulent garden is ideal. If you are planting in heavier soil you may need to plant your succulents up on mounds to solve any drainage or water logging issues. The roots of succulents don’t grow very deep so if you have shallow or rocky topsoil, then using succulents is an easy way to have an attractive garden, with minimal effort. If kept indoors or in pots they will need occasional watering. The water needs to reach all the roots in the pot so give it a good soaking every week or two, but remember that the soil must drain well. On the other hand an under watered plant will ¿rst stop growing, then begin to shed foliage or develop brown spots.

Types of succulents to grow Aloe - Aloe vera is perhaps the most well known which has the added advantage that it can be picked from the garden and used for its medicinal qualities, soothing cuts, abrasions and burns. It will reproduce itself, growing up to 50 cm in height forming in clumps of pale green leaves with white specks. It is known here in Indonesia as lidah buaya, or crocodiles tongue for obvious reasons. There are hundreds of species of Aloe with large variations in form and size, from small geometric rosettes right up to sturdy trees.

Crassula ovata - The Jade Plant is such a versatile succulent because it can be grown very small as a bonsai or allowed to grow into a bush or small tree. Most commonly they are kept in small to medium pots on balconies, or near entrances and if artistically trimmed make an excellent addition to any garden. They have thick brown stems and small coin shaped green leaves. To grow a jade plant they will easily take root from a cutting, otherwise you can grow a new plant by simply pulling off a leaf and dropping onto the soil. They will adapt to tough dry conditions but appearance will be improved with occasional watering. According to Feng Shui the Jade plant is said to bring wealth or fortune if placed correctly within the home/garden layout, near doorways or in the southeast sector of the property. I’m still waiting to see if it works. Agaves - Great as a feature plant. Can be kept small in pots or grown to a very large size in the garden. These are very adaptable and their leaves can form rosettes greater than a metre wide. The Àower spikes, when they emerge can reach up to several metres in height. Once an agave has Àowered the plant will produce numerous offsets before it gradually dies off. Agave attenuata features prominently in many gardens, it can easily be grown from a cutting. It has large grey to green leaves and an almost sculpted shape. It will grow cascading down rocks, hill slopes, even cliff faces. Sanseviera - also known as mother-in-lawstongue, devil’s tongue, snake plant and snake tongue is a succulent that comes in a variety of foliage variations and colours, it will look good in a pot or is often used near walls, pathways and borders to soften the edges of the garden. It can easily be propagated from a leaf cutting by cutting the top off a growing leaf and planting it in the soil. Once it is established new offsets will start to grow up around the parent plant. To create a border you would need to start with several plants. Echeveria - are very attractive small rosette forming plants with colour variations from green, blue to grey, many with pinkish red hues. A shallow pot is an ideal place to plant them especially if you only have a window sill or balcony to grow on. They grow well in a small pot or in an arrangement around other larger succulents within the garden, and will grow in clumps. An attractive plant, and one of my favourites. Other succulents to consider: Euphorbia, Kalanchoe, Haworthia and Portulacaria.

“Dobbin Is Not A Horse” There is an ancient Chinese proverb that says “man who spills beans ends up hungry.” It’s an all too oft repeated story, in Bali sacking members of staff can cause problems. Make no mistake, just as in Australia or other western countries Indonesia has laws regarding unfair dismissal. You must have good cause to sack someone and you need to go through a reasonable process of warnings, 3 warning letters and evidence of wrongdoing is the norm. It is wise, therefore, to have a well thought out employment contract in place and in it state the offences that justify instant dismissal such as theft, picking your nose in front of customers, fraternising with aliens, etc. Unfortunately staff with a distinct absence of gruntle often make complaints to the Manpower department. But they can also go further such as sharing sensitive information with the immigration department or, as in a recent case, to licensing authorities or to those eminent personages charged with administering IMBs (building permits). The person in question had leased some land on a beach and built a villa which would be lived in and, during quiet periods, be rented out to visitors. A manager was employed, a smily helpful person who turned out to be a bit of a disaster as a manager. It is important to note that while being a member of LAST (the Lotunduh Association of Satay Threaders) might be an acceptable qualification to be a brain surgeon in an international wealthcare clinic it turns out that it is certainly not an acceptable qualification for villa management. The manager in question was relieved of his duties which apparently left him relieving himself in other ways. Unfortunately the villa had been built 2 metres too close to the sea and a license had not been obtained to allow renting of the villa to visitors. Soon a queue formed at the front door with the IMB people closely followed by the licensing people and, for good measure, a kaki lima selling satay. This is not a rare situation and many people get dobbed in all too often by expatriates and aggrieved ex staff. In good faith we trust the people around us to look after our interests only to find ourselves in a rather brown coloured river with no means of manual (sorry I mean personual) propulsion. So what do we do? First we should sit down, empty our bowel and realise that we are surrounded by people who can help. We need some friends, the Balinese have their own ways of sorting things out and if we make friends with the local community and support them they are likely to help us. Depending on who the ex employee is in the local community they might well sort him out. It is a good idea to find a Balinese person we can trust and is respected within the community. We can start with the local banjar, the local Holy man, Klian or Kepala Desa, these are the best people to get on our side. Treat people with utmost respect. Come clean with them, don’t be smart or dishonest with them just explain the situation. We shouldn’t say negative things about other people, they will not respect us for this.

1. A domain name that is registered with a domain registration company and held on their computer servers. 2. A hosting company that keeps the website pages on their computer servers. The registered domain is directed from the domain computer towards the computer where the website is hosted by the webhosting company. When someone wants to look at a website they type a domain name into their web browser, their computer sends a message to the domain registration company which then redirects the request to the computer servers of the web hosting company which then sends the web pages back to their computer. Sorry I know this makes about as much sense as an demented warthog, I you’re confused have a paracetemol and a good lie down or perhaps try reading Alice and Wonderland - that should bring a bit of sanity back to your poor addled brain. Many people use the same company for both the domain registration and the website hosting but sensible people don’t. If you have control of the domain registration and you are have trouble with the webhosting company or your webmaster you can easily change them. You simply redirect the domain to another webhosting company. Unfortunately many people don’t know this and find themselves stuck with external agencies that have total control of their website. Many find themselves held to ransom by unscrupulous webhosting companies or that ever so friendly web expert that set it up for them.

When they have organised the web hosting they can give you the address of the webhosting computer and you, and only you, simply go to your domain registration website and type in the web hosting company’s server address (known as a DNS address) to direct customer requests to your own website. You are in total control of your websites (and of course your emails). If you have a problems with the webmaster of the webhosting company you can change them.

So to summarise what we learned from this story: • •

First we need to understand that any website has two distinct components:

The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort.

In fact our story ended well. The person involved was an open minded easy going person who already had very good relations with the land owner who helped to sort things out, new domains were registered and websites quickly rebuilt from backups.

Balinese don’t worry too much about IMBs and for them this is not so much of a problem, their families have lived in their localities for generations. Also they will follow their own traditional building planning and design rules (see recent articles, 196 and 197). They are hardly likely to despoil the landscape by building the sort of square white concrete bunkers designed by architects whose abilities can only be described as - minimalist.

Going back to our story unfortunately it didn’t end there, the ex-manager had another trick up his sleave. He had been managing the website for the villa. After his threats didn’t bring the desired palm crossed with silver response the websites (and their associated emails) were rendered inactive. Unfortunately blackmail by webmasters is an all too common occurrence but it is not difficult to protect ourselves.

Now you can ask someone to set up a website and arrange web site hosting for you. No matter how much they argue or justify the demand do not ever give them the user name and password for the domain registration. They do NOT need it.

• •

If you are an expatriate, however, you are likely to become a target at some stage or another and it is wise to do things properly. It is all too regular that we hear of expatriates that hit problems and not having an IMB is a regular one.

Ability is what you are capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

For Sale; CPU good working condition except cd drawer keeps popping out. Rp. 500.000 only. Call 289 672 or 081 2391 1499. [123]

So the trick is to firstly arrange your domain name registration. Get someone you trust to do it for you or do it yourself - it is not difficult. Make sure that you (and only you) have the user name and password.

It is good to find someone to go with us to talk to the local licensing authority about licences and the Dinas Perijinan to discuss the IMB problem. These things can always be sorted out but, whatever we do, we must not get angry and be polite at all times. If we are helpful and respectful with them they will help, if we get angry or rude they will leave us to our fate.

On a bright note in Australia there is a general recognition that the noughties are over (what on earth will they call this decade - the tenties?) and the bland minimalist architecture that that decade yielded is finally being replaced by something that demands a little more in terms of artistic ability than washing cars - but sorry I digress.

• • • •

Try and keep with the law, take care and do things properly. Make friends with the people in your local community particularly people from the banjar. Find a notaris you can trust to look after your interests. Don’t take things at face value, take an interest and understand legal requirements and processes. Do not make casual arrangements with people no matter how friendly you feel with them, imagine the worst is going to happen and get yourself protected by legally binding documents accordingly. Make sure you have an IMB BEFORE you start building, and ask to see it. If mysteriously it is not available assume that there isn’t one. Make sure your buildings abide by building regulations. If you plan to rent out your villa make sure you have a licence (Pondok Wisata less than 5 bedrooms, Melati Hotel Licence if more than 5 bedrooms), you have an appropriate visa and you pay tax. Keep work roles simple, do not entrust too much of your interests in any one person. If you have websites keep website domain name registration and webhosting separate. Make sure that you, and only you, have the user name and password for the domain registration. Keep backup sets of website files.

C/BM/U-2 April. 14

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at Kale seems to be the current ‘in’ green but any greens would work in this recipe such as beet, Balinese bayam, sayur hijau or chard. These very tasty patties need no sauce but they are nice with a splat of seeded mustard on the plate to dip bites into. High in protein, quinoa makes an excellent vegetarian main dish.

Kale, Feta and Quinoa Patties

Directions: Rinse the quinoa under running water until the water runs clear. Drain and put it into a pot with the water and sea salt. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes or until the water has been absorbed. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl mix the cooled quinoa with the eggs, Parmesan and feta cheeses, the green onions, garlic, sea salt, cayenne, freshly ground black pepper, the chopped kale leaves, the coriander leaf, and parsley. Mix this well and add the bread crumbs using your hands or a large spoon to incorporate the crumbs. Let the Àavors develop for about 15 minutes before forming into patties.

Serves 4-5 Ingredients: - 1 cup quinoa - 2 cups water - 1/2 tsp. sea salt -

4 large eggs, beaten 1/4 cup Parmesan, ¿nely grated 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled 1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced (or shallots ¿nely chopped) 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp. sea salt 1/8 tsp. cayenne 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper 1 cup kale leaves, steamed and coarsely chopped 1 Tbl. coriander leaf, chopped 1 Tbl. parsley, chopped 1 cup bread crumbs

- 1 Tbl. olive oil

Made 6 cm diameter patties about 1 cm thick from the quinoa mixture. Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When it’s hot add about 6 patties making sure not to crowd them. Brown on both sides, adding more olive oil as needed. Put the cooked patties in the oven to keep warm while you continue cooking the remaining ones. They should be well browned for deeper Àavor. Note: I like to serve these with seeded mustard to dip bites into.

What does Gotong Royong mean?

Siapa... ? by Bill Dalton

Kayti Denham: Helping Others to Help Themselves Kayti Denham was born in Surrey England and grew up in the Hampshire countryside. At 17, Kayti worked as an assistant to a buying director of a menswear company in London’s Saville Row. At 20, she entered the world of advertising, sailing the Mediterranean serving cocktails on amazing private yachts. A year later she was balancing trays of drinks in a rock & roll bar in San Francisco and sharing her love of music as a DJ on a university radio station. Kayti has also done stints in music video production, performance art, fashion and catering. In 2010, she earned a Masters Degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of New England in Australia. Kayti ¿rst visited Bali on her honeymoon and has now spent 12 years on the island. She presently teaches English, literature and language arts at Canggu Community School, runs the school’s Gotong Royong Program and has organized the upcoming GIN Conference. What causes are close to your heart? I’m a fervent believer in the preservation of the planet and all the people who support this thinking. I’m passionate about increasing awareness of both the beauty and the fragility of this planet we live on. Are you politically active? Activism has been a way of life for me. I got my start in CND – anti-nukes- and from there it was a straight path into Greenpeace, Avaaz and local environmental, political or social issues. I can’t think of a time when I was not in some way an activist, from a punk rocker protesting nuclear weapons to a mother against the destruction of old growth forests in New South Wales. What inspired you to become a teacher? When I ¿rst felt that I had something to share. My ¿rst job was teaching kids who were in danger of leaving school early. I taught alternatives to mainstream economics like growing your own salad and making your own cosmetics. Living in Byron Bay was conducive to such alternative lifestyle skills! What is the Gotong Royong Program at Canggu School all about? The program puts students in contact with real issues that affect the world they live in and encourages them to seek positive, collaborative and sustainable solutions to the problems inherent in the current paradigm. As coordinator of the program, I am also in charge of the upcoming GIN Conference at the school that brings international, regional and local leaders together for 3 days to present motivational, inspiring and experiential opportunities to the student participants.

It’s an age-old form of mutual cooperation among villagers, originally in planting, irrigation and harvesting that has been practiced in the archipelago for over a millennium. As it is applied in our school’s program, we believe that by helping others to help themselves we are better able to understand the bigger picture of interconnectedness. By being helped and helping, we create energies that go beyond the boundaries of giving and receiving and become part of a cyclic system of beneficial sharing of support and knowledge. This principle is intrinsic to the culture of the school and has been in action here since the school started nine years ago.

Have the kids taken the lessons they’ve learned and applied them in their home environments? The beauty of immeasurable goals is maybe they have, maybe they haven’t, but I believe that they will. What I hope to achieve is that the work I do plants seeds. Those seeds may take longer to grow in some students than others. Brains are like trees that do a lot of work underground out of sight. The results of our nurturing and encouraging are sometimes only seen much later.

C/Bm/I-27 Nov 13

What are the goals of the GIN Conference? The conference is about issues affecting our world. Every presentation, activity, show and workshop is aligned to UN Millennium Development goals in ways that are global, regional and local as well as personal. Each participant at the conference will have the chance to take away knowledge and experience that can change the way the future will unfold. This year, our second conference, we anticipate over 300 students in attendance and over 20 leaders and presenters from Indonesia, Australia, Myanmar, Norway, The Sudan and Cambodia.

C/M/BM/09 July 14

What events will take place at the conference? Friday is the opening ceremony and the premiere of the award-winning documentary Jalanan, ¿lmed in Jakarta. On Saturday evening, after a day of workshops, the premiere of True to This, Volcom’s latest inspiring skateboarding ¿lm, will be shown at Deus followed by music from the students and workshop leaders. On Sunday, Chris and Kodi will present the ¿lm Rise of the Eco Warriors that shows the struggle to save and rehabilitate orangutans in Borneo. Will workshops, seminars or classes be held? At the start, on Friday, the conference in collaboration with The Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, will hold an informative series of small workshops presented by talented writers and artists. On Saturday, students will join workshops that allow them to experience, learn and develop all sorts of understandings. For example, they could be heading into Denpasar with a group of committed young people to build food gardens for disabled children. Or planning a worldwide campaign on animal rights. Or using their feelings of injustice or even sadness to create amazing songs. They could be on the beach learning about the care of marine environments. And much more… C/BM/G-01 Oct. 14

Will Indonesia-based NGO groups be attending? Keep Bali Clean, eco-Bali, Bye Bye Plastics, Surfer Girl as well as human rights organizations like Taman 65, animals rights groups like BAWA and Outcrop as well as education and literacy NGOs.

SACRED TEXTILES OF BALI The artistry of Balinese cloth By Jennifer Juno Textiles represent powerful symbols in Bali. Even buildings, trees and statues have textiles draped and attached to them, because they are by tradition symbolically dressed during ceremonies. Textiles are presented to the gods as offerings and the deceased are covered in numerous textiles prior to cremation.

jambul, symbolizes Siwa. The part wrapped around the head is a half-moon or sun, the symbol of Brahma the creator of life.

Balinese formal (Adat) dress has a divine origin with its own symbolic gesture and function. As merchants brought the ¿rst materials to Bali, they used textiles as a primary medium of exchange in trade at ports. Textiles would have been used as offerings to the gods, later being used as compulsory attire for temples.

The purpose of a man’s udeng is to tie and focus his consciousness to this point of utter purity and distinguish it from all other personal desires, which hold a person down. Many women wear a white headband for a similar purpose.

I interviewed William Ingram, co-founder of Threads of Life to get a better understanding of how Balinese recognize the divine nature of the universe though cloth, ritual and offering. A British mathematician by training, William has lived all his adult life in Asia, ¿rst in Japan and then Indonesia for 21 years. BALINESE TEXTILES Throughout the world, the wealth of traditional Balinese textiles is well known. While admired by many for their beauty and artistry, textiles play an important part in the daily life and ceremonies of the Balinese. Most attire consists of a simple rectangular piece of cloth, which is stylishly wrapped around the body.

DOUBLE IKAT The most impressive textiles to be produced in Indonesia are the geringsings, produced exclusively in the small village of Tenganan in east Bali. The only other places in the world where similar textiles are weaved are Japan and India.

William says: Textiles are used as offerings, ceremonial dress, decoration, and as customary gifts. From a handmade naturaldyed weft ikat cloth from Nusa Penida used on the back of the tongue of a sacred Rangda mask, to the rolls of cheap white polyester gifted to a bereaved family during the death rites”. Textiles in Bali are also powerful symbols, indicating the status and well being of the wearer. It is believed that some textiles are permeated with magical powers, which can protect the wearer against malicious people wishing harm. They could also assist as mediators with the supernatural world in religious rituals such as cremations, where hundreds of costly meters of cloth would be turned into ashes to accompany the soul of the dead to the other world. FORMAL DRESS Chakras are energy centres in our bodies. It is believed that certain emotions and desires are associated with each chakra. The purpose of adat dress is to control some of these desires and to focus attention on a higher purpose. Adat dress therefore symbolically and functionally harnesses the lower instincts. Men and women wear a cloth, called a kamben, usually batik, wrapped around the waist. Men wrap the cloth around their waist with a fold in the front, whereas women wear it tightly around their hips with no drapes. Women tie the kamben at the waist on the left-hand side, whereas men tie it in the centre. Women who attend a temple ceremony may wear an upper garment called an anteng, which is wrapped tightly around the upper body leaving the shoulders free, or a larger selendang, like a shawl, which is thrown over one shoulder. Slightly less formal is the long-sleeved, lacy blouse called a kebaya. Men also wear a short Àat piece of cloth over the kamben, called a saput, which is bright yellow or white, with a decorative border, and both are tied on by the sabuk. If the ceremony is informal, an ordinary shirt is worn, but if the ceremony is an important one, a white shirt is worn with gold buttons. Men also wear a headdress called an udeng as part of the formal dress. It is symbolic of the Ulu Candra, which is a symbolic Balinese letter. The front wing-like vertical appendage, called

The people of Tenganan are original Bali Aga people, who believe that the god Indra created humans and taught them the art of double ikat. Their rituals have to be carried out by people who are pure in body and spirit, and that purity is protected by the magical power of the textiles. The textiles also protect the village and they are only worn during major religious events. It can take between ¿ve and eight years to weave a sacred cloth. Only a small number of Tenganan residents are still capable of making geringsing textiles and the technique is passed down from generation to generation. Many villages in east Bali use geringsing textiles during ceremonies. They are used throughout Bali in rites of passage to protect the participants against danger. Some people wrap a geringsing around the pillow during the tooth-¿ling ceremony. They are also used to cover various ceremonial utensils in village temples and as a shroud to cover the body before a cremation. POLENG CLOTH Poleng cloth represents cosmic duality. The black and white checked cloths are seen wrapped around statues, pavilions, individuals, kulkul drums, trees and stones where a spirit is believed to dwell. For humans, men and women, poleng cloth offers a certain protection. It is sometimes used in temple ceremonies to cover the ground, so that people walking on it will be free of evil spirits. The Balinese see the world in terms of opposites, good and bad, day and night, mountain and sea. The squares woven into the cloth are of equal size are perfect black and perfect white; they intersect and are not parallel. Grey squares contain strands of both and show that you cannot have one without the other. Poleng refers to the black and white squares and not the material from which it is made or woven. Most of the printed cloth comes from Java, but there are still weavers in Bali who produce hand woven poleng for special applications. CEPUK Cepuk cloths are still woven in a long, time-consuming process on Nusa Penida, the island off South-East Bali. In the past, Nusa Penida was a place of banishment and evil forces and that no doubt adds to their powerful reputation. These beautiful, but rare, sacred textiles have a uniform design. Every cepuk has a longitudinal border of white arrowheads, called

barong teeth or gigi barong. Cepuks are made of coarse handspun cotton or silk. Once used as special ceremonial clothing, they now serve as temple decoration. Developments in the last 60 years have tried to speed up textile making, using factory-made yarns, synthetic tying materials, quick-acting synthetic dyestuffs and longer warps. Unfortunately this has resulted in a loss of quality, which is why the Balinese believe the older cepuk cloths are more powerful. THREADS OF LIFE Threads of Life are a fair trade organization, which works with culture and conservation to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia. The heirloom-quality textiles are made with local materials and natural dyes to a very high standard. Working directly with over 1,000 women on eleven islands across Indonesia, Threads of Life help weavers to form independent cooperatives, to recover the skills of their ancestors, to manage their resources sustainably, and to express their cultural identity while building ¿nancial security. The women have a deep knowledge of Indonesian Endek from Sigaraja 280 x 60 cm. sacred cloth, which is central to Tampak bela design all spiritual activities. Why did you start Threads of Life? We started Threads of Life to address three issues we noticed in indigenous textile-making communities while travelling across Indonesia during the 1990s. These issues concerned rural livelihoods for women weavers, forest management practices connected with dye plant use, and cultural integrity. Does the cloth tell a story? The ¿gurative motifs on songket often tell a simple story. A predominantly red cloth used in a baby’s ceremony is to make the baby strong. Yellow would be for fertility, white for truth and purity, and blue for long life. The Semara Ratih cloth has an image of the embracing deities of love, God Semara and the Goddess Ratih. This is used at a tooth ¿ling ceremony to signify self-control of sexual energies. What is songket? Songket refers to a weaving technique using a supplementary weft: it looks like embroidery with all the decorative threads aligned across the cloth with the weft, but all this patterning is produced during the weaving process. Which Balinese cloths are most sacred? There is a whole category of textiles referred to as bebali. These are textiles used as ritual paraphernalia and include very simple checked and striped cloth, such as the black-and-white poleng, and incredibly complex pieces, such as the geringsing double-ikat of Tenganan village. Songket, are not bebali cloths. Are the older textiles more valued? Certainly for many collectors, older is better. But from a ceremonial point of view, if the ritual needs a geringsing, any geringsing will do (as long as it’s not been used for another type of ceremony before). From a social perspective, however, you might want to show off your wealth with a vintage cloth. Who knows about the sacred motifs? Weavers will have knowledge of their t r a d i t i o n s . Wo m e n w h o m a k e offerings for a living and who are Old Balinese Perada batik sought for ritual advice often also from the collection of understand the ritual use of cloth. An Balique Arts of Indonesia. authority I often consult is Ida Ayu Ngurah Puniari of the Griya Mandhara in Sidemen, who has made the study of bebali cloths her life’s work. Balinese Textiles are more than cloths from which garments are made. The yarn and the woven cloth are a medium through which the divine nature of the universe and its material manifestations are recognized and expressed.

01 October - 15 October, 2014

by Colin Bloodworth

Of course, living in Bali you are probably thinking what’s the point saving in dollars, euro or pounds when you can still get a reasonable rate of interest on Rupiah. It’s OK if all your expenditures are in Rupiah but you will find inflation will eat into your capital and the interest will buy less and less if you enjoy a western lifestyle. Not to mention the reduced value of your capital relative to hard currencies after devaluations such as we saw last year. So where can we earn a decent rate of interest? This is the challenge of investing and there are plenty of ways to get higher returns than in the bank – provided you are prepared to accept a higher level of risk. There is no escape from the principle that the higher the return you are seeking, the higher the risk. Let’s just examine a few examples: • Bonds These are basically simple instruments where you lend your money to a government, local authority or company in return for its guaranteed return after an agreed period and a regular ‘coupon’ or interest payment. Perhaps the best known bond of all is the US Treasury Bond, generally accepted as about the safest investment since it is backed by the US government. Except that around a year ago political posturing almost led to a default as the US had reached its approved debt limit. Just out of interest, that debt now stands (for a fraction of a second) at $17,728,960,506,837 according to the website which you may want to check out to see how much the debt has risen since. Should you be worried? You would be if this was your credit card bill but the principles are the same. It’s another good reason not to put all your faith and savings in cash.

Jl. Intan Permai


Jl. Kunti



Under the mattress is one solution and that’s not a very good one! Neither was the idea of one Japanese gentleman who reportedly buried his cash savings in his garden. It might have worked except that he frequently dug it up to check it, no doubt drawing attention to it so that one day he found it had gone.

But, assuming this is the safest asset, how much could you expect to earn by putting your money there? Currently, if you invested $1,000,000 in a 10-year Treasury Bond you would receive approximately $24,000 a year or $2,000 a month. Commit to a 30-year bond and the amount rises to the princely sum of $32,000 a year. And that is fixed and guaranteed for 30 years. What if you want your money back sooner? No problem, bonds are freely tradeable but the price you get may be higher or lower than the face value. Only on the last day can you be sure to get your precise initial investment back.

So where can you safely keep your money free of charge?

No doubt if the depositor places a large amount with a single bank a slightly more generous rate would be offered. Here though there is a risk, albeit a small one, that the bank in question would fail, in which case only the amount guaranteed by the respective countries would be payable. And even then only if the government was solvent! In the 2008 banking crisis the Irish government was not too far from insolvency. Most governments can honour their guarantees by printing more money; in Europe that is not possible as the same currency is used by many countries and stronger economies will not want to see their currencies devalued. To be safe therefore you would need to to place your deposit with several banks and to be ultra-safe, even in other countries.

A decade ago it was possible to get interest rates of 5% or more on deposits. Many wealthy Americans would retire to Florida and live comfortably on the interest on the deposit. A million dollars in the bank for example would give them an income of $50,000 a year. Not any more. They have to look at other ways to produce an income or just draw down their savings until there is nothing left. If the millionnaires still draw down $50,000 a year their savings pot will be empty in 20 years. And that doesn’t take into account inflation which eats away at the purchasing value of the drawdown every year. For Euro millionnaires it is now even worse. Their money will be exhausted even faster as they have to pay the bank -0.2% in negative interest every year. In the first year alone that would amount to EUR2,000.

Of course you couldn’t. You would receive no income on your money and you would have to pay the bank to hold it for you. Absurd isn’t it, but this is the reality in Europe since the European Central Bank unexpectedly cut its benchmark lending rate to 0.05% last month, pushing deposit rates into negative territory. These rates apply only to Euro but rates in other major currencies are not much higher.

There are many other bond types available, most of them paying much more than 2.5% but the higher the return the higher the risk of default. • Stocks If you are seeking income in retirement then there are plenty of good ‘blue chip’ stocks that pay regular dividends which are usually much higher than bond yields. Stocks are more volatile than bonds however and dividends are not guaranteed. Nevertheless, holding a wide range of stocks should see significant capital gain over the long term in addition to the regular dividends. • Alternative investments Low interest rates and the erratic performance of stock markets have led many investors to seek higher returns in less conventional assets such as student accommodation, assetbacked lending, land banking, futures trading, litigation funding and many types of hedge funds. Some have paid off well but there has also been a high casualty rate in terms of fund failures and even frauds so stepping into these areas should be limited to a relatively small part of a total portfolio. Gold pays no interest at all but can be considered as an insurance against the falling value of paper money or political turmoil. • Property This is an income-producing investment favoured by many. Coupled with capital appreciation, buy-to-let investments are claimed to be the best investment out of all asset classes over the past 20 years in the UK. Yields can range from 4% to 8% per annum depending on location. The cost of buying and furnishing has to be taken into account of course and there is no guarantee you will always find tenants although one leading management company is now offering guaranteed rentals irrespective of whether the property is occupied, such is the strength of the rental market in certain cities. But remember you can’t turn a property into cash overnight. So where should we finally look for a decent return? Firstly, as unattractive as it is, it is important to have access at all times to liquid cash so a good proportion of savings should be kept safely in a bank or preferably several banks for added security. From the foregoing it is clear that there are ample opportunities to obtain higher rates of return by investing in other assets. But as each asset has its own set of risks the wisest approach is always to diversify. Never put all or most of your eggs in one basket. Finally, as it is clear how hard it is to obtain a good return from any investment without a degree of risk, it is another reason to save harder while you still can. Once income from working stops and you have only your retirement pot to live on that’s when the challenges begin. Colin Bloodworth of PPI Indonesia has spent over 20 years in Indonesia.

Say What? Question: I was in a passionless 3-year relationship until last year. Since then, I have sought to expand my opportunities for meeting potential new partners. A few months ago, I met a lovely lady online with a similar background to mine. We hit it off and began seeing each other. We also agreed to be “exclusive.” To this, I gave her my specific position and asked to be told if the agreement was ever broken. I asked for honesty, openness, and a chance to reevaluate if circumstances changed. As the two of us grew closer, I was considering making things more “official.” Then last night, she called to ask if we could get together today and told me that she had slept with her neighbor after drinking too much the night before. She apologized profusely, claiming she is a “train wreck” and has feared hurting me all along. I have a history of depression, suicide attempts, mental illness, and partners cheating on me. She knew about this, and although I’m relatively well composed now, I feel very much hurt by her actions. I gave myself the afternoon to think, and I decided that I couldn’t stay with her any longer. We agreed to monogamy, and when that agreement was broken, I decided I couldn’t trust her any longer. I told her that she did nothing wrong but had violated my trust. She asked if things couldn’t just go back to how they’d been before, but I felt they could not. I don’t want any additional emotional pain or drama. I’m unhappy about the circumstances and wish it had not panned out this way. Now, I wonder if I did the right thing. What could I have done differently? What should I do if she contacts me again? I’d appreciate hearing your thoughts. Dr. ZZ: You sound like a fairly level-headed guy who asked for what he wanted. You didn’t get it this time, and you are smart to disengage now before you get further involved. You asked for monogamy and a chance to re-evaluate the relationship if she didn’t want the same thing. She slept with someone else and told you about it (as you had agreed), and you dumped her (as you had agreed you probably would). Even if you were thinking of making things more official, it is best to honestly evaluate a relationship in the early stages. Naturally you’re sad and angry. Something you thought was going well turned out to not be working out. You feel as if she let you down. If you were to get back together, you would most likely be full of distrust and judgment. Like almost anyone else in a similar situation, you would have to put her through a gamut of having to prove herself before you could be fully comfortable again -- if you could ever be fully comfortable again. Lesson learned: when someone describes herself as a train wreck, chances are it’s best to believe her

instead of signing up for a future of worrying that she is going to cheat on you every time she gets drunk. Question: I’m having an impasse with a friend whom I have known for years. Over that period, he has developed crushes on me a few times, and I have politely told him that I don’t want a relationship with him past friendship. He has taken that well, but he still has these feelings and speaks as if he doesn’t. He relates to me as a sister and is also weirdly flirtatious. Whenever anyone calls him on it, he claims, “She’s like a sister. I don’t think of her like that.”

Over time, I have had numerous uncomfortable conversations with him about boundaries, and I feel as though I should not have to tell him over and over what’s okay with me and what’s not. The only reason I’ve stayed friends with him is because he can be a generally great person. He has helped me through some tough times and has been there when I needed him. At this point, I’ve been avoiding him, and he keeps sending texting me, asking where I’ve been. I don’t know whether to talk to him about it or not. I’ve told him a few times that he makes me uncomfortable, and it hasn’t helped. Why should I have to repeat myself? Is it best to leave this friendship behind for now? It’s not healthy. Dr. ZZ: Reading about your friend makes my skin crawl, but if you say he’s a great person, and you want to keep him in your life to some degree, that’s up to you. Friendship is not a charity finishing school for people who can’t take no for an answer. You may want to send him a message something like the following: “I’ve received your multiple messages and inquiries, and I haven’t been around much or felt like hanging out. Your repeated texts make me feel crowded and uncomfortable. Please give it a rest. I will get in touch with you when I want to hang out. Thanks for understanding.“ Then give it 6 months of no contact, and re-evaluate how you feel. You will have asked what you need from a person who claims to be a friend. Don’t get drawn into explaining, apologizing, or soothing his hurt feelings. Any unwanted contact restarts the clock to at least 6 more months of no contact whatsoever. If you run into him at a restaurant or via mutual friends, be cordial and polite. Then go back to no one-on-one contact afterwards. Chances are you’re going to like those 6 months without him, but if you miss him, there he’ll be. Copyright © 2014 Say What? You can read all past articles of Say What at

Graeme Stevens

The BizWiz Brand Delivery… co-create customer value and release hidden proÀt

How New School Marketing is Your Game Changer Are You Old School or New School? What are the differences between “old school marketing” (OSM) and “new school marketing” (NSM)? OSM: Segment by products NSM: Segment by customer jobs to be done. Customers aren’t looking for your product per se, customers are looking for solutions to help them get a job done. So don’t sell products or services, sell solutions that provide perfect outcomes. Customers are loyal to perfect solutions, not to products. OSM: Focus on pro¿table transactions NSM: Focus on customer lifetime value Once you focus on the total customer value you can accept that your very ¿rst transaction may only break even or even be at a loss. There is greater emphasis on “selling a hole (ecosystem) versus selling the garden plant” and opportunities for cross selling and upselling strategies. This new focus implies that you are investing in a knowledge base about your customers, their demographics, and their likes and dislikes about outcomes required and achieved. OSM: Focus on acquiring customers NSM: Focus on retaining customers In OSM the focus was on a marketing funnel with a broad top that you attracted prospects to, and once people fell out the bottom as buyers they were passed to little brother sales. Now we recognize that gaining a new customer costs 4-9 times the cost to retain an existing, satis¿ed customer, and so special focus on marketing to those “drop-outs” is a key area of the New School, at least equal to the top of the funnel. Satis¿ed customers help you acquire new customers by sharing and referrals to their own networks and these transactions have far higher credibility for the new customer than do your own marketing messages. Now your marketing knowledge base will contain linkages between customer networks so you can better market to groups with similar interests. OSM: Marketing by marketing people NSM: Marketing by everyone Everyone in your business needs to understand how your products and services help customers achieve perfect outcomes. That knowledge then impacts on every action they take, and every conversation they have. So you need to articulate those messages in all your company literature. Include it on your labels, include it on your invoices, include it in all your training material. OSM: 4P’s - product, price, placement and promotion NSM: 6C’s - contact, connect, conversation, consideration, consumption and community. New school is heavily into engagement. OSM: Measurement of Immediate pro¿tability. NSM: Measurement of results at all stages of the customer journey The objective is to gain insights and predict likely actions. This means a marketing budget can con¿dently predict likely results. The Secret to Measuring Your Results Marketing measures should at least be focused on your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs.) There are many measures you can use, but ¿rst focus on the ones that determine your long term viability as a business. The KPI’s we use for our online business are shown below together with required performance. Explanations of the abbreviations are shown below the table.

customers obtained. LTV:CAC: This ratio provides the required level of gross pro¿t to remain viable. CAC Return: measures how long it takes to recoup the cost of acquiring a customer. Immediate Conversion: the share of generated leads who will immediately buy our service In-Funnel Conversion: prospects who buy after an extended marketing process or dialogue. Churn: this measures how many of your customers don’t renew their subscriptions. The higher the churn rate the lower your pro¿ts, and the longer it takes to build your customer base. Referrals: We encourage our customers to refer our service to their own network, with a reward offered for both parties when a referral creates a new customer. Upsell: taking your customer to a higher value (and higher priced) subscription or service. Cross-sell: Offer your customer the complete eco-system that supports their job and outcome. As an example, our accountant helped us register our business and bank account, but they are missing out on referring us to their other customers’ ecosystem of investors for our startup (for a fee) and other services we need to know about such as payment gateways. Other Performance Indicators An online marketing platform means you have relatively easy capability to measure your performance in every step of the customer journey. So we also measure: Views: how many people actually see our message? How many only see a headline and don’t open the email or article? Lead generation: the conversion rate of views to leads for your different inbound and outbound tools. Prospects: How many people in our funnel are likely to buy from us and when? A/B Page Testing: comparing the lead generation and conversion results of individual page elements (eg button colours, location of buttons, visuals.) In-funnel performance: results from white papers, webinars, case studies. Use Marketing and Measuring Tools In our business we use marketing tools such as LeadPages and SamCart, and SalesForce. These monthly subscription packages include some basic means of measuring performance. They link with our online accounting package to help provide pro¿tability measurements. Once our volumes increase signi¿cantly we will move to Hubspot as our automated marketing and analytics platform.

Air Sanih: Water Park of the North The main attraction of Air Sanih ((also known as Yeh Sanih), 17 km east of Singaraja, is not the tranquil 5-km-long black sand beach along this coast, but a giant pool of clear cold fresh water. One of the only natural swimming pools in Bali, the spring’s source is Lake Batur from where the water Àows through an underground channel at a rate of 800 liters per second. Though not as popular as the Lovina Beach area west of Singaraja, the springs and adjoining coastal strip are more peaceful and less c r o w d e d , especially when compared to the hectic tourist ghettoes of the south. There are fewer sellers and not as many foreigners. Lower-to-middle class Indonesian families and couples Àock here on the weekends to swim, lie by the side of the pool and walk along the shoreline. All over Bali water from sacred freshwater springs have been used for bathing, as a source of water and as a site of pilgrimages since ancient times. Believing that the water has symbolic and religious importance as well as medicinal properties, the Balinese carry the spring water home for blessings for use in making offerings. In the case of Air Sanih, the springs over the years evolved into the only coastal recreational facility or anything approaching a seaside water park in Buleleng Regency. Since 1930, Air Sanih has been well known as a recreation center. In the 1977 edition of my guide Indonesia Handbook, I wrote that Air Sanih was “a big globular-shaped swimming pool that can be virtually empty for 3 days in a row with no disturbances, just the birds” and “where males might meet sleepy-eyed Javanese women to converse with on various levels.” That atmosphere and those services have long since been a thing of the past. Now a family man on a family outing, after we bought tickets and walked inside, the din of a thousand screeching school kids filled the air. It was the second day of Hari Manis Galungan and hundreds were frolicking in the pools on their day off. (The other name for Air Sanih is Rekreasi Anak Kecil or children’s playground.) On days other than holidays I was told that it’s relatively quiet and relaxing to walk the footbridges over a long winding canal, give the kids a ride a toy train and snack in one of the many food stalls that line the west side of the park. The pools are cleaned every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Facing the Bali Strait in the middle of Bali’s north coast, Air Sanih makes an excellent base. The big draw for international tourists is what can be seen in the surrounding area where there’s a plentiful choice of accommodations in a wide range of budgets. Homestays and tourist restaurants on the other side of the road are all within easy walking distance. Start in the vicinity of your hotel by asking around for any local ceremonies or family rituals going on. The imposing Pura Taman Manik Mas, on the hill above the springs, has stunning views. The Mimpi Hotel offers Balinese cooking class, which includes an early

morning trip to the market. The waterpark is a welcome retreat – sort of the Echo Beach of the north but without the foreign tourists where the climate is more arid and sunny, even in the December-April rainy season. The shady seaside spot’s idyllic black-sand beach is a bit rocky with cool sea breezes, tall trees and a nice panorama. In August, January and February the sea can be rough, making for dif¿cult swimming. During March to June and September to December the sea is calm enough to swim nearly every day, more like a lake than a sea.

Carvings show ghouls, noblemen, household scenes, and Floral bicycle-Pura Meduwe Karang, a riot of leaves and Kubutambahan, Bali tendrils. On top of a pedestal is a horrifying rendition of Durga. On the northern wall of the innermost shrine is a 1-m-high relief of Bali’s ¿rst tourist, W.O.J. Nieuwenkamp, a famous Dutch landscape artist who rode his bike all around Bali in the early 1900s. Note the bicycle’s lotus-Àower spokes, the rat and dog beneath the wheels and cyclist’s sarung even shows Àoral patterns.

Ocean activities include child-friendly swimming, jogging on the beach at sunrise when there’s not a soul around, snorkeling Practicalities in acres of offshore reefs that begin about 500 meters to the front, joining in on a dolphin tour, going out with a local ¿shermen in a traditional jukung and taking an overland trip to the diving centers of Tulamben to the east or Menjangan Island to the west.

Trek to inland rice terraces and peanut and palm plantations, while the more ambitious can take part in an expedition to Mount Agung in Karangasem Regency.

Air Sanih is just a 30 min drive east of Singaraja, 2 hours north of Tabanan and 2.5-3 hours northwest of Denpasar. If coming from the south, the fastest is to take the south-north route connecting Tabanan, Bedugul and Singaraja. Heading south, a road climbs from Kubutambahan (8 km west of Air Sanih) up to the Mount Batur area. Entrance to the bathing place (kolam renang) is Rp8000 adults, Rp5000 children. InÀated rubber tires rent for Rp5000Rp7000 depending on size. Just down the road to the east is safe parking for motorcycles and cars (Rp2000), but you may also park along the road.

Singaraja, the regency capital, is only half an hour to the west. The old colonial port of Bali, the city has a harbor, a large market and lots of shops.

Chinese Tourist Arrivals Rise by 45.76 Percent Around 330,172 Chinese tourists visited Bali during the initial seven months of 2014, an increase of 45.76 percent as compared to 226,494 visitors recorded last year. “China is ranked second after Australia in the number of tourists visiting Bali,” Head of the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) of Bali Panusunan Siregar stated here on Monday (15/9). He explained that China has contributed 15.80 percent of the total number of tourists to Bali. This year, Bali has drawn about 2.08 million tourists, an increase of 16.66 percent as compared to 1.79 million tourists recorded in the previous year. The total number of Chinese tourists who traveled to Bali surpassed the number of travelers from Japan, Singapore, and Malaysia, except Australia. (September 15th 2014)

Government Criticized for Allowing Foreign NGOs Operating in Indonesia President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has made a mistake in 10 years of his administration by allowing foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to operate freely in the country, the Pulp and Paper Association (APKI) said. “It was a very bad mistake allowing NGOs like Greenpeace to enter the country,” deputy general chairman of APKI Rusli Tan said via telephone here on Tuesday (16/9). The government including regional administrations do not have to provide assistance in fund for foreign NGOs, but they had been free to launch negative campaigns in the country and abroad to boycott Indonesian commodities in international markets, Rusli said. For local NGOs, the government especially regional administrations have to provide fund assistance derived from the regional budget to sustain their operations, he said. Greenpeace, which made its presence for the first time in Indonesia in 2005, had launched campaigns raising issues about management of forests, energy, water and marine affairs in the country.

Indonesia’s Coral Reef Management Draws Accolades Indonesia has been awarded the Coral Conservation Prize on September 19, 2014, in San Francisco, the United States, for its sustainable coral management, announced the Marine Affairs and Fisheries Ministry (MMAF). MMAF conveyed that this achievement was a result of three strategic measures adopted by the Indonesian government, which are strong commitment towards the coral conservation policy by establishing marine conservation management; combining marine resource management and protection followed by prudential resource utilization; and strengthening global partnership in coral reef management, Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Sharif C. Sutardjo stated on Monday (22/9). Two Indonesian coral reef activists, Nyoman Sugiarta and Abdul Manap, were named the winners of the Coral Conservation Prize presented by Coral Reef Alliance for their significant roles in saving and conserving coral reefs. They eliminated seven nominees from Fiji, Hawaii, Honduras, Mexico, and Palmyra. The MMAF constantly protects and manages the marine and fishery resources sustainably through various marine conservation initiatives. The commitment has also been realized by the establishment of the Marine Protected Area spanning 16 million hectares. MMAF is also actively engaged in numerous regional and multilateral forums, such as the Coral Triangle Initiative (CTI), World Coral Reef Conference (WCRC), World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Leibniz-Zentrum for Marine Tropenkologie (ZMT).

Ngurah Rai Airport New Domestic Terminal Opens

Bali Increases Security

Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport new domestic terminal officially opened and began operations on Wednesday (17 /9). To coincide with the new terminal’s opening an increase in the Passenger Service Charge, originally approved in April is also officially implemented. As of September 17, 2014, the Passenger Service Charge [for domestic flights] is adjusted from Rp. 40,000 to Rp. 75,000,” explained General Manager of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, Herry A.Y. Sikado. According to Sikado the new Bali domestic terminal is some 68,000 square meters, four times the size of the previous domestic terminal, and has a capacity of approximately nine to twelve million passengers per year.

AirAsia Extra Set to Take Off in Bali Indonesia AirAsia Extra, a local unit of Malaysia’s AirAsia X, expects to launch its maiden flight from Bali at the end of this year, Air Asia Group chief executive Tony Fernandes said in Jakarta on Monday (15/9). “I think the first flight will be early next year or this December. We can’t disclose the exact date yet,” Fernandes said. Indonesia AirAsia Extra, also referred to as Indonesia AirAsia X (IAAX), will fly its first route from the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar, Bali, becoming the first long-haul low-cost carrier in the country. Established in January this year, Indonesia AirAsia X officially obtained its air operator’s certificate from the Transportation Ministry’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation on Sept. 4. The airline is currently looking for operating permits and slots for its planned international routes. By comparison, Indonesia AirAsia - which has operated in the country since 2006 - is limited to flights lasting a maximum of four hours, according to Fernandes. “It’s AirAsia on steroids,” Fernandes said. “AirAsia will bring tourists from Asean to Indonesia. AirAsia X can bring [tourists] from Asia and Europe to Indonesia.” (September 15th 2014) V.S. Naipaul Dropped from Bali Readers & Writers Festival ‘Over Large Fee’ Nobel laureate V.S. Naipaul has been dropped by an international literary festival in Bali after the event refused to meet his “11th-hour request” for a $20,000 fee to appear, its organizers said on Wednesday (17/9). The Trinidad-born British writer had been one of the biggest names booked for this year’s Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF), scheduled for the start of next month on the Indonesian resort island. However, the event’s founder and director, Janet DeNeefe, said they had decided to cancel his appearance after he asked for the fee. The organizers said the $130 tickets to the “Evening with V.S. Naipaul” would be refunded in full. He had also been due to feature in a one-hour “In Conversation” session. Naipaul’s agent Andrew Wylie could not immediately be contacted but in comments to the Guardian newspaper disputed the account, saying the withdrawal was due to a conflict in the author’s schedule and not fees. The festival runs from Oct. 1 to 5 and involves some 150 writers from 25 countries. (September 17th 2014)

island of Bali but they are increasing vigilance as Islamic State (IS) ideology creeps into Indonesia. There are concerns Australia’s deployment to the United Arab Emirates, in readiness to fight IS in Iraq, could make Australians a target when holidaying abroad. Bali police spokesman Hery Wiyanto says there is no information that terrorists are planning another bombing like those that killed 88 Australians in 2002 and four in 2005. “So far, there’s no plan we’ve heard of, whether through intelligence or from (Indonesia’s counter-terror squad) Detachment 88,” he said. “Nevertheless, we’re being cautious.” Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has reportedly ordered authorities to keep a closer eye on foreign nationals in Indonesia after Detachment 88 on Saturday (13/9) arrested four foreigners suspected of having IS links in a known terror hotspot in central Sulawesi. The four were first thought to be Turkish but are reportedly Uighurs from China’s restive Xinjiang region who were using forged passports. Mr. Hery says so many foreigners enter Bali daily, “it’s impossible to observe them one by one”. “It’s difficult, but we have co-coordinated with immigration to check documents more thoroughly, and in hotels we are also doing the same.” Meanwhile, police in Central Java have tightened security measures at the world famous Borobudur Temple after a threat, apparently inspired by IS, was found on Facebook last month. The Buddhist monument, a UNESCO world heritage site, was targeted by radicals in 1985. (September 16th 2014) Jetstar Cuts Almost Half of Darwin to Bali Flights Holiday plans for many Territorians have been ruined following the announcement that Jetstar will cut almost half of its flights between Darwin and Bali starting next month. Jetstar currently flies between Darwin and Denpasar daily but will offer just four direct flights per week from October 26. The move has left many Territorians scrambling to reorganize their holiday accommodation and annual leave dates, with some being forced to cancel their trips. Jetstar spokesman Stephen Moynihan last week told the NT News the airline was not going to cut any flights between Darwin and Bali but back flipped on the comments yesterday. He said the decision to can the daily flights was a result of “consumer demand” and “increasing competition on international services from Darwin”. “Jetstar regularly reviews its schedules to ensure it aligns services with market demand,” Mr. Moynihan said. “From 26 October Jetstar will offer four direct services a week between Darwin and Denpasar and several other one-stop connecting services via Singapore.” Flights times will also change, with the Darwin to Denpasar departures moving from 7.30pm to 12.30am. Denpasar to Darwin flights will soon depart at 6.10pm instead of 11.20pm. Mr. Moynihan said any customers affected by the changes “will be offered a choice to move to another service or a full refund”. (September 16th 2014)

A team of scientists from the Eliminate Dengue international project are launching eradication trials in Indonesia aimed at containing dengue fever outbreaks, The Wall Street Journal reported. “Usually we start off in a country at a relatively small pilot scale,” Scott O’Neill, program leader of Eliminate Dengue said on Wednesday (17/9) as quoted by The Wall Street Journal. “In Indonesia it’s a couple of thousands,” he added. The trials involve releasing an army of mosquitoes specially bred with the Wolbachia bacteria that the scientists believe can virtually eliminate dengue. The idea is that the released mosquitoes will breed with wild insects, which would then pass the bacteria to their offspring and render them immune to dengue. According to O’Neill, “the severity of the disease is getting worse, the outbreaks are getting more frequent and the geographic range in increasing.” Currently there are no vaccines or drugs to combat dengue fever and experts claim prevention is the only cure.

(September 23rd 2014) Largest Rubbish Dump in Bali on Overload As the winds turn Westerly on Bali towards the end of the year, tons of trash are bound to be washed up on her shores, however according to Bali’s Provincial Government, one of the largest landfills in the island in Suwung just South of Sanur is already at its maximum capacity. A Government scheme implemented to process waste this year by converting plastic waste into electrical energy is also far from solving the problem. “One of the obstacles with the program is expensive cost of the materials,” said Head of Public Works in the Provincial Government, Nyoman Astawa Riadi. The program, an agreement between the Provincial Government and PT Navigat Organic Energy Indonesia was set to generate 10 megawatts of energy from the waste, however reports suggest that they are averaging 0.97 megawatts. “The waste will not accumulate in the landfills if 10 megawatts are produced,” added Riadi. According to Riadi for the year ending December 2013 Bali produced approximately 10.005,83 m3 of garbage per day. This averages out to 2kg per person based on a population of 4,056,300. The garbage produced is about 13% plastic, 20% non-organic and 67 % organic. The smell and smoke from the dump often reach as far as 6 km from the dump itself. (September 17th 2014)

Boyhood* In director Richard Linklater’s latest family drama, he follows the lives of an ordinary American family over a 12 year period. Starting from the turn of the 21st century, until the recent past, the movie concentrates on the son of the family, as he searches to find his identity while he grows from childhood to college student. During this period the boy has to adapt to the continuous changes in his life, as his parents go through many relationships, divorces, and new spouses. Basically, nothing of any real significance happens in this movie. These are ordinary people living very ordinary lives. Still, Richard Linklater does present a very intriguing depiction of what could be called an ordinary American family, now. The movie was shot over a 12 year period, using the same cast, so the actors literally mature and age before our eyes. The Fault In Our Stars* A sixteen year old girl is suffering from a form of lung cancer, and, she joins a support group seeking emotional help. There, she meets an older teenage boy who is also suffering from cancer. They are attracted to one another, and, a rather tempestuous but doomed romance is to commence. This highly saccharine movie is well-directed by Bryan Singer. It will be popular with teenagers going through ‘first love’. It is the perfect ‘date’ movie for them. The Rover* Set in the desolated outback, “ten years after the collapse”, Australian society appears to have broken down. A cold-blooded drifter spends the entire film criss-crossing the desert, as he tries to get back his stolen car. He kills just about anyone who gets in his way. Don’t ask me what the movie is all about. No explanation is offered. Nevertheless, David Michod presents a really fascinating movie, with a formidable performance from Guy Pearce. The Longest Week An affluent and aimless New York playboy suddenly finds himself homeless and disinherited. For one long week he tries to maintain an impression of his financial security, while he courts a gorgeous and successful model. Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman, and Billy Crudup give sparkling performances in this rather sparkling little romantic comedy, written and directed by Peter Glanz. Frontera While illegally crossing the border into the USA, a Mexican man witnesses the accidental killing of an American woman. The bigoted local police are quick to charge him with murder, however, their retired sheriff, who is also the husband of the killed woman, is not so sure about the Mexican’s guilt. He decides to do some investigating on his own. His enquiries are to reveal some startling facts. Michael Pena, Ed Harris, and Eva Longoria, all give strong performances in this good contemporary western from Michael Berry. Life of Crime After the wife of a wealthy businessman is kidnapped, the wife and her kidnappers are surprised to discover that the businessman doesn’t want to pay her ransom. He would prefer her dead so that he can marry his mistress. Jennifer Aniston and Tim Robbins star in this witty comedy, however, even though their sources are very different, this movie is remarkably similar to Bette Midler and Danny DeVito’s 1986 classic comedy ‘Ruthless People’. Frank A promising young electronic keyboard player joins a very eccentric music group. After securing his position with them, he accompanies the group to Ireland to record an album. The leader of the group is weird. He wears a big false head which he never takes off. The movie tries to depict the dynamics of an experimental musical group, but, it is not clear what it is trying to say. Get On Up This is a very puzzling movie. It tells the life story, from rags to riches, of African-American Soul Singer James Brown. However, director Tate Taylor chooses not to present a linear narrative, and, instead, presents key episodes from various parts of James Brown’s life all jumbled-up together. The result is a very confusing storyline which becomes increasingly hard to understand. Night Moves Three environmental terrorists blow-up a hydroelectric dam, however, when people are drowned in the ensuing flood, they panic. As members of the co-operatives where they live suspect them, they blame each other for the deed.

Letters To Bali Advertiser Dog Culling Dear Bali Advertiser, Recently an opinion was published about the need for dog culling due to rabies and the excessive number of street dogs. There are two separate issues here. First in regards to rabies, the World Health Organizations website states: Dog destruction alone is not effective in rabies control. There is no evidence that removal of dogs alone has ever had a significant impact on dog population densities or the spread of rabies. In addition, dog removal may be unacceptable to local communities. However, the targeted and humane removal of unvaccinated, ownerless dogs may be effective when used as a supplementary measure to mass vaccination. Mass canine vaccination campaigns have been the most effective measure for controlling canine rabies. High vaccination coverage (70% or higher) can be attained through comprehensive strategies consisting among others of well-designed educational campaigns, intersectoral cooperation, community participation, local commitment in planning and execution. As to the second issue of there being too many unwanted dogs in Bali, charities like BARC and BAWA are making a dent in this problem by rescuing and re-homing unwanted puppies as well as sterilizing thousands of animals per year at no cost to the owners. Unfortunately, there’s still overpopulation. The current method of poisoning dogs indiscriminately without regard to whether they are family pets is exceedingly cruel and inhumane. What’s needed is a lot more donation to charities that sterilize animals. But that alone won’t solve the problem until residents are willing to seek out such services and to give unwanted animals to the shelters instead of dumping them on the side of the road. Until that happens euthanasia is going to have to continue, I just wish it was done more humanely and without risk to people’s pets. Lisa Huffman

“Vespa Party” It is no secret that motorbikes are the main form of transportation for many Indonesians. But for a particular group of Indonesians, their bike is more than just a mode of transportation. Their ride symbolizes self-expression and freedom, while providing them with a solid community. The Vespa community is thriving in Bali but can also be found throughout most of Indonesia. I became aware of the Vespa culture when I ¿rst arrived in Bali. Two of my friends had an assortment of old Vespa’s some of which looked like they were on the brink of decay. But the condition of their Vespa’s did not matter to them. Fixing up their bikes was considered to be a labor of love, something for them to take pride in and granting them a type of satisfaction and reward that is completely foreign to anyone who has yet to ride a Vespa. While living in Bali, I would see more and more Vespa’s zipping around. Some of them obnoxiously loud because of their faulty exhaust, others vintage, slapped with a shiny coat of paint, other’s looking like they were about to collapse at any given moment. When I met my friend Widi, she started telling me about the Vespa Community. She said to me “Wherever I go in Indonesia, I can ¿nd a Vespa community. Even in the jungle in Kalimantan where there is nothing, they still have a Vespa community there.” My friend is very adventurous and has driven her Vespa around many Indonesian islands. Driving from Bali to Jakarta on her Vespa is not considered to be a daunting task at all, but an adventure, a statement of her lifestyle choices, independence and mobility.

appropriate position. As I begin to absorb the scene and characters before me, I loosen up. I let go.

bikes still had sidecars to ride in. So that night, one of my long-time desires ¿nally morphed into a reality.

As the arak diminishes amongst the group, a guitar is being passed around. Everyone is singing, mostly out of sync, but with one spirit. One individual stands up and starts dancing in an exaggerated and goofy style, everyone begins to collectively tease him. So I decide to dance with him. Everybody goes crazy to see the bule (white foreigner) contributing to the entertainment and silliness. What I love most about this community is that it is easy to let go of your inhibitions. Everyone accepts each other without judgment, which creates for quite a comforting atmosphere.

We take off in an excited fury. Ready for exploration. I am low to the ground, and quite comfortable with the sofa seat supporting me. There is a point where we have to make a right turn, the bike was so rundown that the driver had to hop off the bike and in a sprint-like manner push the bike across the street, then hop back on just in time to avoid getting hit by any oncoming vehicles. Amused by the farce of it all, we were both laughing and I remained in a blissful state. I tilted my head back to gaze at the stars, while winding, turning and zooming down the dark, jungle road. We arrive at our spot and meet more friends who were sitting on a tarp, draped over the concrete Àoor outside of their kos (rented rooms). I am greeted with warmth and smiles and am instantaneously offered more food from yet another smorgasbord, while expected to wash it down with another series of arak shots. Some friends are playing guitar and singing and it is a nearly impossible task to kindly refuse the food that is offered to me (seeing as how I just ate). The evening continued in this form until we decided it was enough of an adventure for one evening.

After some time passes, the women call everyone in when it is time to eat. Typically with Indonesian meals you have a woven plate with a piece of brown paper on top to make cleaning the dishes easier in large group situations. Not this time. The women start arranging banana leaves on the Àoor. A mountain of nasi jagung (rice cooked with corn) is spread over the banana leaves. Salted ¿sh, chicken, vegetables and krupuk (crackers) are clumsily piled atop the rice. Everyone crowds in the small space and starts devouring the meal, which literally lies before us. People are sitting, squatting and squishing side by side each other, grabbing, plucking and picking at chunks of rice, ¿sh, chicken and vegetables with their bare hands, and indulge in the fruitful meal. Widi scoots up beside me and says, “We all eat together like this, because we all have one heart, the same heart. It doesn’t matter if someone is sick or has dirty hands because we are all one.” This was very powerful and memorable for me, because it forced me to see everything with a new perspective. A perspective I hope to keep with me wherever I travel or migrate to.

So when Widi invited me to her friends house for a Vespa party one Saturday night, I was intrigued to see an aspect of Indonesia that I have not previously been exposed to. I ride over to the house, when I am pulling up on my average, little Yamaha, I feel inferior compared to the exotic bikes in which I am parking next to. A wide assortment of Vespa’s, most of which are at least 20 if not 30 years old are arriving one by one. Some of them have high handle bars and high seats, almost looking like a motorized scooter, others have side cars attached to them, some don’t even have a seat, just a spring board in place of where a leather seat should be, some are decorated with an array of bumper stickers or unique paint jobs, others are deteriorating from rust, loud, big, fast, conspicuous and outrageous only begins to describe the menagerie of motorized vehicles gathering on this curious evening. As each bike rolls up, everyone begins cheering, as to greet their mates, airing their excitement and comaraderie. Some friends are sitting on the concrete Àoor by the gate of the house. A bottle of arak is of course getting passed around and cigarettes are being burnt through one after the next. Everyone is smiling, laughing, joking and in a sheer state of joy. I am automatically greeted with a shot of arak, and at least three people offer me cigarettes. My good friend Widi informs me about a feast which is preparing inside. I am in a skirt, why I wore a skirt, I don’t know. Because sitting on a hard, dirty Àoor in a skirt is always a challenge. Widi, also wearing a skirt, is joking and laughing with me while helping me to ¿nd an

Once we ¿nish eating, it is time to take a ride. After too many shots of arak to count my friends ask me if I am okay to drive. I smile with lazy eyes and shake my head “NOOOOO”. They laughingly understand and one of my friends says I can ride with him. Everyone is gearing up, zipping up their jackets, gathering helmets, divvying up bikes and passengers, when all of a sudden a bike with a sespan (sidecar) attached, appears before me. Inside the sidecar looks like a seat torn from a sofa, I tell everyone that I want to ride in the sespan. The previous gentleman that offered me a ride seemed disappointed and tried to convince me otherwise. But there was no convincing me, not now. Ever since before I could remember I wanted to ride in a sidecar. It always seemed like an exotic and antiquated experience. And this was the ¿rst opportunity I had to ride in one. I was not even aware that

The Vespa community in Bali schedule tours around the island. Sometimes an army of them will spend a few days touring around the island, stopping at different locations to visit friends. Vespa tours take place in other parts of Indonesia as well. People from other islands may come to Bali to partake in Vespa tours, or people in Bali might visit other islands to join Vespa tours there as well. It is not hard to spot the Vespians, and like most Indonesians they are very friendly and welcoming to converse with. The Vespians have a good heart and a m e d i t a t i v e disposition, but to an outsider they might look a bit offputting at ¿rst sight. Unconventional hairstyles, tattoos, piercings, grimy clothes and a lack of personal hygiene, all of which contribute to their composition as a people and community. Their Vespa culture runs very deep for them. What a lot of people may not understand is that for mainstream Indonesian society, they are outcasts. Most of these people come from small and tight knitted villages where their religion and culture is very strict. Having tattoos, wearing certain styles of clothing, drinking alcohol and subscribing to particular genres of music, is not understood or accepted by their families or communities back home. But here in Bali, they have formed their own family, their own community, a group of people who understand each other; they live together, sleep on Àoors together, laugh, sing, eat, cook and ride together. The closeness they have formed with one another often times comes from the missing gaps of their biological families back in the village. This is something I have experienced and can personally relate to in my own life as well. My lifestyle choices are not mainstream for most Americans. Which is why I feel very blessed to be in a place and surrounded by people that have such a high regard for family. Family goes beyond blood for myself and for many of my Indonesian friends as well. The Vespa community in Bali is very special for many reasons, but the biggest reason is because they take care of each other as if they were blood, and were kind enough to adopt me as part of their family.
