Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at Inspired by a recipe in the New Wave Asian cookbook, this is a taste surprise! No one will guess what’s in it but this luscious soup will have your curious guests handing their bowls over for seconds. Soft tofu adds protein without overriding the subtle flavors. The riper the mangos the sweeter the soup so I prefer them to be unde ripe. Chayote are called ‘buah jepang’ here and are a ribbed bell shaped vegetable commonly found in most markets.

Mystery Mango Soup Serves 4-6 Ingredients: - 1 Tbl. rice bran oil - 2 shallots, finely chopped - 2 tsp. ginger, finely chopped - 2 chayote or buah jepang, seeded, skinned, and cut into 1 cm x1 cm cubes - 600 ml. water - 2 Tbl. Italian parsley, chopped - 2 mangos, skinned and seeded and cut into 1 cm. x 1 cm. cubes - 300 ml. coconut milk, preferably fresh but boxed will do - 1 package of soft tofu or ‘tahu jepang’, cut into chunks - salt and pepper to taste

C/Ns/G-7 March 12

- ¼ tsp. chili oil - see recipe below - 2 tsp. lime juice or to taste Directions: Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the shallots and ginger stir frying for 5 minutes. Add the chayote cubes, give it a stir and let it simmer until the chayote is soft, about 10 minutes. Add the water and parsley and simmer for 25-30 minutes. Now add the mango and cook for 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk and the tofu stirring well and simmer for 15 minutes over a low flame. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and let the soup cool for 20 minutes. Pour into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth adding the chili oil and lime juice for the final blending. You can eat the soup at room temperature or reheat. For each bowl of soup run a thread of chili oil in a spiral over the top. Note: To make chili oil take about 10 green or red chilies and make a slit in them so they don’t explode. Heat ½ cup of vegetable oil of your choice and sauté the chilies for five minutes. Cool and strain the oil into a jar, discarding the chilies. All recipes are available on the Bali Advertiser website in both English and Indonesian versions. You can easily copy and paste and print. Paste as unformatted text.

This column is non-advertorial and written by an expat who has lived in Indonesia for nearly 20 years. The island has changed during this time, as has the whole world, but there are some places, things, people or events that remain as good as anyone can remember, for various reasons, or, recently opened places, arrived people or new organisations that are worth a mention. Listed below are those for this edition, in no particular order, as the island is a vibrant place that moves progressively with many wonderful things on offer. Bali has come a long way and My Favourite Things explores what remains interesting for us all to experience. For something a little bit different and to clean out the cobwebs, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always fun to get off the island for a while and explore the neighbouring islands. The nearest are Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida, with Lombok and the three Gili Islands found off the north west coast of Lombok also being very popular choices. These islands can be visited as day trips, en famille, or romantically a deux, or as a few days away (especially for Lombok or the Gilis) as many of the mentioned islands offer ÂżUVWFODVVDFFRPPRGDWLRQ

BA Feature



My desire to write this two part article on the virus known as HIV on Bali arose after reading a succession of articles with staggering statistics revealing the rapid rise of infection among teenagers, mothers and babies. In a November 2010 Jakarta Post article Udayana University epidemiologist Dewa Nyoman Wirawan, an expert and long-time HIV/AIDS activist stated that “The fact that HIV has spread into the general population should be a wake-up call to many elements of our society that still believe the disease is confined to certain populations.’ Statistics serve to alarm and awaken. The next step is to understand the many dimensions of the human experience behind the numbers so that we may consciously choose how to respond from a place of love, instead of fear. At the writing of this article, November 2011, the reported number of cases in the Denpasar area alone was 4552. These are reported cases. Lack of understanding and misconceptions about HIV-AIDS fuels discrimination, rejection and abandonment of a person who is living with HIV-AIDS. The strength of this stigma blocks people from seeking information, testing and treatment, fueling the flow of infection. Guess estimations from those involved in prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS on ‘The Island of the Gods,’ say the numbers will rise to 7,000 by year’s end. HIV- Human Immunodeficiency Virus- is brilliant. It cannot be caught by shaking hands, sitting on toilet seats or by washing a corpse with AIDS. This virus has more integrity. It finds its way into a person’s blood stream via bodily fluidsblood, semen, and vaginal secretions. Although it can be transmitted via sharing needles-intravenous drug users and insulin dependent diabetics- HIV loves to spread its deadly nature via unprotected sexual intercourse. I respect a foe that finds its entry point at the most intimate, and yet the most culturally, spiritually and psychologically layered of human interactions. Once within the bloodstream, the virus attacks and slowly breaks down the immune system. The immune system is the body’s defense system. When the virus mutates into its crowning achievement-AIDS- Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome- the body is open for attack from every virus, bacteria and parasite flying around looking for a host. If we are to understand and defeat our foe, we first must accept its existence, honor its nature and seek understanding. The heartbreaking fact on Bali is that the majority of Balinese are ignorant of the virus among them. Although there are many outreach programs, there is no coordinated media blitz and the most common path of information dissemination is when a pregnant mother is tested, or a friend or family member is diagnosed as sick, dying or has died from AIDS. Pak Nyoman, works in the agricultural division of the Indonesian government in Singaraja. He learned about the virus from his son-in-law who died from AIDS in 2004. “He was like a son to me. He was always sick. Twenty-five days before he died the doctors gave him a blood test for HIV. That was the first I heard of the virus. My 24 year old son-in-law was dying of AIDS. At that time my 22 year old daughter was tested and the results were positive.” Worya, a devoted husband and father is living with HIV-AIDS. He tested positive after his 8 month pregnant wife tested positive for the virus. His now 5 year old son is HIV free. Worya says that “At first I didn’t believe the tests. I didn’t feel sick. I was in denial.” Testing, treatment and prevention organizations report antidotal evidence that HIV is on the rise within Balinese families. In a Sept. 7, 2011 Bali Advertiser news brief a ‘spokesperson’ for the Committee for Combating AIDS

admitted it is common practice for married men to engage in sexual affairs with other women (foreign and Balinese) and/ or sex workers then return home to have sex with their wife. What Mr. Spokesperson did not say is that it is also common practice for the men to refuse to wear condoms and for women to oblige. Abortion is also illegal in Indonesia. In Balinese culture if a woman becomes pregnant and is not married, the responsible male must marry her and a village wedding ceremony ensues. This scenario does not produce the conditions to grow a marriage where both partners find everlasting love and affection. Dr. Emily Rowe is an anthropologist working the past two years as a program manager at Yayasan Kerti Praja in Denpasar. Yayasan Kerti Praja provides an outreach program for sex worker education, support groups for HIV positive people, an income producing program called ReLife, and free HIV testing and treatment. Dr. Rowe helps us to understand some of the underlying cultural beliefs that support what the chairman says is ‘common practice’ among Balinese men to have multiple sex partners: “Extra/pre-marital trysts or infidelities are often dismissed with the expression, “dasar laki-laki – typical male!” a phrase that normalizes male promiscuity. In addition, many Indonesian ethnic groups share a hydraulic model of sexuality based on humoral medical theories of health and corporeality. In a hydraulic system, sexual desire is conceptualized as a strong inherent force that requires release or to somehow be controlled and channeled. The need for sexual release is considered essential for health, and is believed to be empowering for male health most significantly. Sexual interaction for males is regarded as vital for relieving stress and restoring potency, and also in keeping the body fresh and renewing energy. Women are expected to sit back and take it.” I am honored to be an intimate ear to a few young Balinese males. Each of them married and in their mid to late twenties. Each one shared with me feelings of guilt after entering into an extra marital sexual relationship. My heart broke open when I realized how each of them felt it their duty to engage in an affair. As an outsider as well as a woman with diametrically opposed cultural values, I simply held empathetic space for their pain. I also navigated the dialog so that these intelligent, talented young men might consider that they, as the new generation of Balinese, have the power to change directions. This idea served to initially inspire and empower, however, months later when I encountered two of them and we began to converse, I discovered that they did not diverge from their original direction. Each of them felt it was a way to provide for their family, as well as to receive needed emotional and physical nourishment. To be clear, my young friends did not receive money for sex, rather the relationship with their Western lovers offered many other opportunities for cash advancement. Also, I know many Balinese who are in thriving, loving monogamous relationships. Economic opportunity within any society is a prevailing motivating force for choosing one’s individual life path. Sunarti was born in Surabya, migrated to Bali and married a Balinese man whose income supported the family. When her husband died in a motorbike accident, Surbaya born Sunarti was left with nothing. She felt her only option to obtain enough money to support herself and her two children was to enter into the sex work industry. Fees for this service range from 25,000IDR at a girlie warung for low price to 450,000IDR for a more classier session-with higher class women. It is this need for a sustainable income that is driving the increase in numbers of sex workers on the island. Bali thrives on tourism and sensual massage parlors, Kuta Cowboys, red light karaoke, discotheques and kafe’s where the waitresses serve sex are all available for Balinese and to feed foreigners fantasies of experiencing sex, love and maybe marriage on an island paradise. HIV PREVENTION: IT’S ALL ABOUT A CONDOM We bring all of our former sexual partners into the sexual act we are experiencing in this moment. Have you experienced multiple partners simultaneously or random partners in succession? Or are you a human being living on planet earth who becomes overpowered by sexual desires and occasionally engages in sexual intercourse refusing or at best, forgetting to invite Mr. Condom to the party? Changing cultural paradigms

can take a few generations. However, hitting the pause button to slip on a seductive, sensual, comfy condom can save many lives here and now. I asked Worya, a courageous man who chooses to be a public voice for people living with HIV-AIDS “Why do men refuse to wear condoms?” He was silent for a few moments then simply stated: “It doesn’t feel good.” As a female on the receiving end of the condom coated penis I agree with Worya. As a female, my body is more susceptible to the HIV virus. I can’t control others choices, I can only be in charge of my own feelings, thoughts and desires. I am in charge of what goes into my body. I value my body and my life. Sexual penetration packs a huge energetic infusion for a woman emotionally, physically and spiritually. However the use of a simple piece of latex or lamb’s intestine during sexual penetration allows freedom from fear of infection, shame and blame which can outweigh the transitory feel good of penetration without a condom. There are a multitude of ways to ‘feel good’ during sexual relations. Invite your imagination into the bedroom or take up some tantric sexual teachings. I was the messenger of new information for my young male friends about HIV-AIDS and condom use. When I told them the virus is not like rabies-no vaccine and no cure-and once it becomes AIDS it is likely a death sentence they became very, very quiet. There is free antiviral medication offered to Balinese that will strengthen the immune system IF he or she is aware that the illness arises from being HIV positive. However the shame of being a host for this virus is so great, that many who know they are HIV positive will only speak to a PLWHA (person living with HIV/AIDS) or a person like Pak Nyoman who has a HIV positive family member and keep their status silent within their family. S i l e n c e stimulates the spread of the HIV virus. Balinese are open minded yet are encouraged to listen and not invited to question. The family unit is a s m a l l community and it is from that community that we are shown how to treat ourselves and others. Whether we are Balinese or foreigners, each of us are a product of the past 5,000 years of living within a cultural paradigm founded in fear. We maintain silence through an endless cycle of internalized blame and shame which suppresses the voice of our innate divine wisdom, our True Power. The moment we choose to give voice to what we truly feel, think and desire is the moment we change directions from fear to love within ourselves. Communication from a place of love is the cure for halting the spread of HIV-AIDS on Bali.

DVD The Adventures of Tin Tin Steven Spielberg’s wonderful children’s movie is a sheer delight. Tin Tin is an investigative journalist, and when he buys a miniature model of a sailing ship he is to discover that many other people are also interested in the model. Being a curious sort of fellow, Tin Tin does some research on the sailing ship that the model is based on, and this is to lead him into all sorts of terrific adventures. Steven Spielberg shoots his movie with real action and real actors, such as Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, and Daniel Craig, but, in post-production, the movie is turned into computeranimation. The superb colors and textures of the film only go to accentuate the cartoon character of the movie, which is based on a series of famous Belgium comic books. Children of all ages are going to have lots of fun watching these splendid adventures. Game Change During the 2008 American presidential election campaign John McCain is being beaten in the popularity polls. His ‘spin doctors’ recommend that he does something daring to make the public sit up and take notice. They advise him to select a woman as his running mate. Various female politicians are canvassed, but, on paper, the Alaskan governor Sarah Palin looks like a good choice. However, when Ms. Palin joins the campaign, it becomes apparent that she is hopelessly inadequate for the role of Vice President. Director Jay Roach makes a very intriguing political movie, in which the emphasis is on media manipulation. Julianne Moore also gives a very interesting portrayal of Sarah Palin, a woman who knows that she is involved in something way beyond her capabilities, but, is determined to see it through. In the end, the Republican Party comes to realize that they have created a political monster. The Sitter This movie has been designed to showcase the talents of comedian Jonah Hill, who plays the world’s worst baby-sitter. To do his mother a big favor, Jonah agrees to sit with the neighbors’ three children. The night is to turn into mayhem, as Johan and the kids go on a crazy trip through the streets of New York. You know from the beginning that everything will turn out all right, but, there are some pretty wacky and highly amusing situations to be found during the movie’s hilarious journey to an inevitable happy ending. Land Gold Woman Set in present day Birmingham, this Indian movie looks at the controversial subject of ‘Honor Killing’. An Indian family has been living in England for over 20 years, and their traditional Indian values have slipped, as they became more accustomed to a Western lifestyle. However, when his teenage daughter falls in love with an English boy, the father is pressured by his strict brother to kill his daughter, and thus restore family honor. Writer and director Avantika Hari shoots this fictitious movie, which, even so, is based on real events, in a cold and analytical style stressing the horror of the story. Dark Tide A marine biologist is hard up for cash, and, when an arrogant businessman offers her a lot of money, she reluctantly agrees to take him swimming with sharks. Director John Stockwell’s action movie is slow to start, but, when things finally get underway, the movie picks up quite considerably. Anyway, when the belligerent businessman eventually leaves the safety of the steel cage and goes swimming with the sharks, most audiences would agree that he gets everything that he deserves. Halle Berry looks raunchy in a wet suit. Mission Impossible, Ghost Protocol Let us hope that this is the last of the ‘Mission Impossible’ series. Over the years they have become more and more ridiculous. This latest one is very badly made, and it is also impossible to follow and figure out. In fact, this new one has been reduced to just a tired old Tom Cruise doing acrobatics. Anonymous At the court of Queen Elizabeth the First, a courtier writes some political plays, and he pays the actor William

Another Happy Day A large extended American family comes together to celebrate a wedding. During the festivities all the family skeletons come rattling out of the closet, and are up for discussion. Everybody prattles on about their own problems. Underworld Awakening Vampires, Werewolves, and Humans are waging an all-out war, and all of the clans are attempting to establish domination. Make of it what you will. The Hunter A research scientist is hired by a mysterious company to find a presumed extinct Tasmanian Tiger. He is to meet hostility from the local red-necks. Seeking Justice After his wife is raped, a secret vigilante group offers the husband retribution. In exchange, in the future, he must do a favor for them.

Dynamic Life

Ferdinand was born in and grew up in Denpasar. He was a quiet little boy who loved to read detective stories. In 1990 he started a t t e n d i n g secondary school in Australia and in 1996 enrolled in the University of New South Wales, learning a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance and Information Systems. Ferdinand spent a total of seven years in Singapore and Australia, returning to Bali to design information systems for his uncle’s various businesses. He’s also worked as a certified insurance agent in Indonesia for more than 10 years. Ferdinand now runs his own personal development program based in Denpasar.

C/Ns/G-07 Mar. 12

Who are your clients? Companies in the service industry, furniture manufacturers and one of the biggest telecommunication providers in Indonesia. I also help foreigners find the most suitable employees who are able to meet the high quality standards and work culture that they have learned to expect back in their home countries. I believe God has given each of us at least one special talent, one which no one on Earth can do better. I focus on those people - about 100 people last year - who want to realize their full potential and make a sincere effort to better their lives. What are the most common causes of problems between live-in partners? I have found that it is the lack of the daily nurturing of the relationship. You cannot make a plant grow and bloom if you don’t water it everyday. Love is built by our everyday actions and show of affection towards our spouse, such as a morning kiss, a hug, a thank you note. No one can make a relationship work just by commemorating a birthday or an anniversary once a year. C/NS/I-07 Mar. 12

How about problems between parents and their children? I believe it’s one way communication. Parents want the best for their children, but kids have their own minds. Parents must listen carefully, then convince a child that a decision is in his or her best interest. Parents must not extinguish a child’s freedom of expression and creativity. Also parents should be prepared to apologize when they are wrong! Other problems arise when parents try to be “friends” with their children. As alluring as it may sound, a parent’s main job is set high standards by example and to raise children with firm foundations in love, honesty, integrity, disclipline, character and purpose. A parent cannot always be good buddy when teaching these essential life skills. How about problems in the workplace?

After years in the insurance business, I felt that there was something missing. Although I happy helping people secure their finances, I found more joy in helping others solve their problems. Sometimes I would spend a whole day just listening to and trying to help a potential client without selling any insurance! I get a real sense of satisfaction when I can help people discover their true potential and become a better person in the process.

I often advise people that if they are having a conflict with someone, find out what interests that person has and help him or her fullfill that interest. For example, one client noticed that a colleague he was having trouble with liked comic books, so he downloaded that person’s favourite comics and made him an instant friend. Another client was unhappy in the workplace because he thought he was being bossed around too much. Once he understood that he had a poor self image, he changed the way he saw his work and caused no more problems. When I talked to him two weeks ago, he was starting to think about his future with the goal of building a family home.

Who has had the biggest influence in your life?

Can you tell us about any of your success stories?

I have a great deal of respect for Zig Ziglar, a salesmanbusinessman-motivator, and Paul J. Meyer who is considered a pioneer of the self improvement business. His students include Ziglar, John C. Maxwell (a leadership expert) and Rich De Vos (the owner of Amway). They are all my heroes, and I practice every single thing they teach on a daily basis.

I always tell people that the only person they can change is themselves. If they change, others around them will be impacted and then start to also change. With the right mindset, many of my clients feel they now have a clearer direction in life with goals to pursue. One fellow was offered a position in a customer’s hotel, at double his current salary, but turned it down. A few days later he was promoted by his current employer to become the new business manager. Another man after many years of conflict learned to accept his father, started talking to him again, and persuaded him to stop drinking. After years of marriage and several grown up children, another client now has finally started to regularly court his wife.

What motivated you to get into personal development work?

What’s Dynamic Life all about? Dynamic Life is about living better everyday in all aspects of your life in the rapidly changing environment we all live in. A Blackberry can make you closer to some people, but it can also take time away from your loved ones. I heard a story recently about an acquaintance who angirly broke his laptop in half because his wife was so fixated on Facebook and did not pay any attention to him.

How is your personal development technique different from others? I have faith that people can change if they really want to. I provide inspiration, encouragement and hold the sincere believe people can change. My philosophy is when you go for the “gold” in people, you have to dig it out from the bottom, taking away all the impurities. It’s hard work, but I focus on the gold, not the dirt.

Laser Therapy Safe, Painless and Relaxing

C/He/I-22 Feb 12


ACROSS MY DESK Two of the health concerns in Bali this week are one pesky little virus called the Coxsackie virus, and bites from a nastier bug nick-named the “tomcat” rove beetle. Coxsackievirus The Coxsackievirus, more commonly known as hand foot and mouth disease (HFMD) usually begins with a fever, poor appetite, malaise (feeling vaguely unwell), and often with a sore throat. One or 2 days after fever onset, painful sores usually develop in the mouth, feet and / or hands. They begin as small red spots that blister and then often become ulcers. The sores are usually located on the tongue, gums, and inside of the cheeks. A non-itchy skin rash develops over 1–2 days. The rash has flat or raised red spots, sometimes with blisters. The rash is usually located on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet; it may also appear on the buttocks and/or genitalia. A person with HFMD may have only the rash or only the mouth sores. I have seen several children each day this week with HFMD disease, so it does seem that its around at the moment, and naturally its highly contagious! How It Is Spread ? Infection is spread from person to person by direct contact with infectious virus. Infectious virus is found in the nose and throat secretions, saliva, blister fluid, and stool of infected persons. The virus is most often spread by persons with unwashed, virus-contaminated hands and by contact with virus-contaminated surfaces. Infected persons are most contagious during the first week of the illness. The viruses that cause HFMD can remain in the body for weeks after a patient’s symptoms have gone away. This means that the infected person can still pass the infection to other people even though he/she appears well. Also, some persons who are infected and excreting the virus, including most adults, may have no symptoms. How is it treated? There is no specific treatment for HFMD. Symptoms can be treated to provide relief from pain from mouth sores and from fever and aches: • Fever can be treated with antipyretics (drugs that reduce fevers such as paracetamol, acetaminophen). • Pain can be treated with acetaminophen, paracetamol, or other over-the-counter pain relievers. • Mouthwashes or sprays that numb pain can be used to lessen mouth pain (such as Bonjela teething gel). • Encourage fluid intake to prevent dehydration (lack of body fluids). A vaccine or specific preventive for HFMD is not available, but the risk of infection can be lowered by following good hygiene practices. “Tomcat” Rove Beetles Causing Havoc Through Java, now in Bali What is a Rove Beetle? The Rove Beetle is small, 7-8mm long. It has a black head with an orange/red thorax (immediately behind the head). The body is mostly black with a shiny metallic black area that conceals its folded wings and a distinct broad orange/red band towards the tapered tail.

Where are Rove Beetles found? - During the daytime, Rove beetles can be seen crawling around on the ground, with their wings hidden, and can resemble ants. Adult Rove beetles are predators of other insects and at night are frequently encountered around light sources. How can Rove beetles affect humans?- Rove beetles do not bite or sting but their blood contains a strong toxin called pederin that can cause skin and eye irritations If you crush the beetle the toxin is released and absorbed by your skin. The beetle can be crushed if you swat it like a fly or mosquito or if it collides with you at speed (such as bare skin on a motorbike) and can cause conjunctivitis, severe dermatitis (rash) and serious skin irritation. Initial symptoms include reddening of the skin, and a ‘burning’ sensation. This is followed by painful irritation and itching, with extensive pustules and blistering of the skin after 4 days. The affected areas remain irritated, blistered and sore for 10 days. Toxin on the hands, or exposure near body joints, can spread toxin to other areas of the body and to others.

C/He/I-14 Dec 11

How can I protect myself from the effects of Rove Beetles? Avoid touching Rove beetles. Blow or wash beetles off your skin. Minimize lighting in infested areas at night. Wear long-sleeved and long-legged clothing to minimize exposed skin. Keep insect screens closed to keep the beetles out of bedding. Have bottles of soapy water handy for first aid. Use the buddy system to keep a lookout for beetles on others. If a Rove beetle is accidentally crushed against the skin, immediately wash the affected area with soap and water. The toxin slowly penetrates the skin. Washing shortly after exposure will remove much of the toxin before it has time to harm the skin. FIRST AID - There is no specific first aid available for exposure to Rove Beetle toxin. Avoid contact with the beetle. Avoid ingestion. If exposed to Rove Beetle toxin, wash affected area immediately with soapy water, and then use cold compresses, antihistamines, or apply Aloe vera to alleviate the symptoms on exposed areas. Seek medical attention for severe skin reactions to the toxin.

DHEA - New Age Therapy

What if there was a natural substance that creates feelings of well-being and at the same time slows down the aging process. What if this substance had virtually no side effects and it could also regenerate virtually every organ within your body, and possibly even extend your life span – would you take it? I would, and in fact I do!

• Brain Degeneration or the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease or Parkinson’s Disease. • Malignant Cancer and Tumors • Diabetes

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a one of the first supplements I would choose if I had to make a choice: it will help to keep me young, extend my life span and make me feel good at the same time. This article will explore the reasons why DHEA can do all of this and more.

Other areas in which DHEA may help include: • Poor memory and learning abilities • HIV infection and AIDS • Obesity • Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia • Rapid Aging • Autoimmune diseases • Viral illnesses such as EBV, Herpes, CMV, Hepatitis

DHEA is “the superstar of the superhormones,” according to William Regelson, M.D., an oncologist at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, in his book “Superhormone Promise”. He writes that DHEA rejuvenates almost every organ system, so it “actually makes you look, feel, and think better.”

Hormone replacement therapy is no doubt one of the most potent ways of slowing the aging process and reducing your risk of degenerative diseases. I also believe that this therapy could provide us with significant life extension benefits and may also perhaps enable us to achieve an indefinitely extended life span.

Further research now suggests that DHEA can prevent or reverse the diseases that anti-aging doctors firmly believe are the major causes of premature and rapid aging: cancer, diabetes, heart disease (atherosclerosis or hardening and blockage of the arteries), and reduced immunity. New evidence indicates that the level of DHEA in a person’s blood is an excellent predictor not only of these serious health problems but also of aging itself.

As a medical therapy, hormone replacement therapy is complex and is not easily grasped well by most doctors. However if we wait until it is perfected by mainstream medicine, it could be too late for most of us to receive benefits. New age anti-aging doctors who are on the ball with this therapy are now able to use it according to each individual’s unique levels of hormones in their body with often remarkable improvements in their health and well-being.

“DHEA is Undeniably One of the Most Crucial Predictive Factors in Diagnosing Aging-Related Diseases,” Dr Ronald Klatz, president of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.

If you have any questions or feedback on the above article you can email me at DrTheodoreBali@gmail. com

There is no question that DHEA extends the life spans of animals and holds promise as a defence against the degenerative diseases of aging. But can the hormone actually extend human life span? While the research literature strongly supports this claim, it remains unproven.

NEW Anti-Aging Programs Are Now Available at

DHEA Replacement Therapy For Age Reversal The hormone DHEA is produced from cholesterol in our adrenal glands and serves a wide variety of functions, providing us with health and longevity benefits. It is a “mother” hormone that the body converts on demand into such hormones as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and androstenedione. DHEA is the most abundant hormone in your body, and it usually begins to appear in the bloodstream at the age of seven and peaks when we are about 20 years old. After that point, the older we are, the less DHEA we have, as the DHEA levels decline with age. At 40 years of age, your body only makes half the DHEA as it used to. Around the ages of 60, one produces only 10 to 20 percent of the DHEA that it did at 20, and at 80 years this figure has dropped to only about 5 percent. Males generally produce higher levels of DHEA than females, until old-age brings the DHEA in both to comparable levels. Studies have shown a direct relationship between blood levels of DHEA and the inhibition of many diseases, and its decline signals the onset of many of those illnesses that are age-related. DHEA levels in the blood can indicate the present and future status of a person with regards to cancer, immune function, cardiovascular disease, memory disorder, and aging itself. If You Have High Levels of DHEA, You Are Less Likely to Develop: • Heart Disease or Arteriosclerosis

Essential Bali Maps

RING 0361-7443102 or email to :, Booking for Programs a must

visible on the fore edge - so that it’s easy to find the section you need. The larger the scale, the more features will be included.

C/E/G-7 Sept. 11

The “Key To Maps” in the frontmatter enables you to locate the area of Bali you wish to look at, and the easy-to-read page numbers make it simple to quickly find the right page. Each map is allotted two facing pages. Running heads in the upper left hand corner of the left-hand page gives the name of an important feature or locality to help you recognize straighaway where you are. If you want to see a neighboring area, arrows and page numbers around the map edge will guide you directly to that area. Old traditional names of regions such as “Abang” have lost their everyday currency and have been replaced by more encompassing geographic designations like Tulamben & Amed; Suksada has become Lake Tamblingan & Lake Buyun, Gerogkak is now called “Northwestern Bali” and “Kubu Tambahan” is now known as “Northeastern Bali.”

Bali residents and visitors alike are fortunate to have available locally in any major English-language bookstore an excellent Bali road atlas, a first class folded map and wall map of Bali. Produced by Periplus, these maps are high quality, feature color printing, and indicate major landmarks, services, tourist attractions and topographic features based on a fully digitized map database synchronized with the latest satellite imagery. Bali Street Atlas, Third Edtion The Bali Street Atlas (ISBN 978-07946-07036, Rp195,000), an update of Periplus’s 2008 edition, is the first and only atlas of Bali that was produced using international cartographic standards. Using the latest survey information and field research, it offers excellent clarity, large scale finder maps, detailed plans for city areas and a user-friendly index. All these features are specially designed to make finding places quick and easy. Key essential landmarks include beaches, temples, hotels, shops, restaurants, shopping malls, consulates, government offices, hospitals, clinics, police stations, schools, parks, banks and golf courses. Important buildings are identified by name and accurately located. Major are road arteries are shown in eye-catching yellow and orange. This newly revised edition is actually 14 pages smaller than the last edition (144 pages as opposed to 158 pages) because it uses space more efficiently and gives more priorty to highly trafficked and visited locales. The atlas is also Rp56,000 cheaper than the old edition (Rp195,000 as opposed to Rp249,000). Each edition of this atlas is actually a record of the demographic and economic changes that are constantly taking place in Bali. Each edition adds infrastructure in the way of new roads, harbors, terminals, markets, parking lots, tourist sites and bridges as well as man-made changes in the size, shape and location of physical features such as mangroves and forest areas, river courses and nature reserves. The fast growing Bukit area of south Bali now gets its own individial two page map, as does the increasingly touristy Pemuteran area of northwest Bali and Lake Tamblingan and Lake Buyan in central Bali. On the other hand, Pemongan has been swallowed up by the expanding Kuta/ Legian area and Bingan is now represented on the two-page Bukit map. Towns have also become cities. Perhaps in some future edition we will see remote resort areas such as Amed with their own town plans just like Kuta and Legian have town plans in the current edition. The maps listed in the Contents of the new edtion are not divided according to scale, but within the pages of that atlas itself maps of different scales are grouped into three sections, each having its own districtive color sceheme –

In the last edition, the map legend, which explains all the map features used in the atlas, was on the second page but in this Third Edition it is found more handily on the front inside cover. A comprehensive alphabetical index consist of a street index, a building index and a places index in which both the page number and the alphanumeric grid reference are given. The trimsize of 20 cm X 27 cm (7-3/4 X 10-1/2 inches) makes it convenient to store the atlas in your glove compartment or shoulder bag. A protective plastic cover keeps it from becoming dog-eared.

C/E/G-7 March 12

Bali Wall Map, 2nd Edition If you have the wall space, the Periplus full color wall map of Bali (ISBN 0-7946-0428-5, Rp125.000) features comprehensive coverage of tourist facilities and public amenities. There are no town plans or regional area maps shown, but the Bypass road, all major roads and minor roads are clearly shown as orange and white lines in varying line thicknesses. The boundaries of all of Bali’s eight regencies are delineated, their names denoted by large type, while all of Bali’s major towns are printed in large black type. Many small desa and even banjar are also indicated. The scale of 1:135,000 is large enough to find almost any significant town or village. Environmental, recreational and sports amenities, as well as forests, nature reserves, beaches, museums, tourist sites, dive sites, golf courses and surfing spots are also shown.

C/E/U-25Jan. 12

There is no index, but the legend of general, transport, recreational and phyiscal features on the lower left hand side is highly legible and easy to use. Measuring 102 cm X 69 cm (40 X 27 inches), the map is sold with a protective folder/pocket which allows you to use it as a reference, though it is not suitable for use as a road map because constantly opening and closing the map will cause it to deteriorate. Folding Bali Map, 7th Edition This easy-to-carry map of Bali (ISBN 978-0-7946-0590-2, Rp80,000) with a folding system for viewing in either convenient single-sheet spreads or single-panels measures 11 cm X 26 cm (10.1 x 6.1). The major city plans in margin inserts are in a scale of 1:60 000 while central city areas are 1:15 000. A useful cartorgraphic feature of this map is that the built-up urban areas are shaded in light orange, allowing you to avoid those areas by taking alnernatre routes. Unlike the Bali Wall Map and the Bali Street Atlas, place names and names of features in the legend are in five languages: Indonesian, English, German, French and Dutch.

… in translation. What’s Lost and What is Found? by Shelley Keningsberg Every year, UWRF brings together writers and readers from all over the globe to convene and commune around books and ideas. Because of that diversity, part of the thrill of this literary festival is that chance to hear, meet, be inspired by writers whose first language may not be the language we ultimately read them in. Nor, the language they speak in at the festival. And, that made me think about the whole idea of translation and interpretation. So, with so many books on offer this year from the rich and vast Bahasa Indonesia storehouses (particularly the work of Pramoedya Toer, the writer being honoured at this year’s festival), it’s a good idea for us to think about just what it is that interpreters and translators do and how complex it is. And how it can serve the writers and in turn the readers. It’s likely that many of the books on offer at the festival may well be read in both their original and in translation. A common association with interpretation or translation, is that of professionals taking words or writing in one language and transforming it — holding its integrity and meaning, but putting it into in a language other than the original. It’s a subtle, complex and (for too long) much underrated skill, but there’s so much to admire about the dedication and rigour needed to be a really good translator. And it’s interesting to consider the challenges they might face in trying to be conduits for another’s creation, but having to be creators themselves to even get to be doing this work in the first place. So, what happens … in translation. What’s lost and what is found? How complex is it and, if there is a risk of things being lost; of things not being understood, why do we translate literary works? Talk to a translator and they’ll tell you about the challenges (and, they say, the thrills) of trying to get into the mind, the thought processes, the style of another writer and be skilled enough to represent them in another language. This made me think more, (and here I ‘declare my hand’ as a professional editor) of the translating or interpreting that editors might do as they work with writers to help get their books out into the world. Of course, we don’t move from one

language to another (much) but we do, often, have to interpret what the writer has wanted to express when there’s ambiguity or a lack of clarity or, sometimes, just an inelegant way to have put things. Rendering, mentioned in the definition, brings to mind a type of drawing or sketching. And to get this right, translators or editors need to be very in tune with the intention of the writer, their vocabulary, their style, the story they want to tell as well as bring in something of their own creative effort to make it ‘sing’ as beautifully in the second language as it does in the original. Why does it all matter anyway? It’s because it’s these efforts that bring us stories. And it’s from stories that we read or hear or watch that we draw our meaning. It’s one of the ways we make sense of the world…and it’s the most powerful element in so many relationships. Story is said ‘to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable’ (often attributed to journalist Finley Dunne commenting on the effect of newspapers). It has a power to help us find meaning or wake us from the torpor of no meaning. The more stories we hear, from all over the world, the more willing we are to feel connected and, then perhaps, compassionate. The more we see the universal in our particular story the easier it is to make meaning of our place and our relationships — to people and things on the planet. In a review of a recent book dealing with ancient religious texts being translated into English, Leon Wieseltier, the reviewer says: ‘All translation is interpretation, since it is a choice among meanings; but translation is not the same activity as interpretation. A good translation of a troubling text will preserve the reason for the trouble, and thereby leave open the gates of interpretation’.

C/U/G-22 Feb. 12

A great historian of philosophy, Etienne Gilson, who served on the French delegation to the San Francisco Conference in 1945, was said to have rejected a French translation of the United Nations Charter because it erased certain cunning ambiguities in the original, observing that ‘One must translate the text in all its obscurity: The fidelity of the translator must include a commitment to honoring the density and the alienness of the original. The translator must not preempt the mental toil of the reader’. So, the work of the translator becomes an invaluable conduit from one world to another; from a set of ideas and expressions in one language, embracing the vast range of writing over different genres and styles, to another. And, with … and with the UWRF only months away, we’re in for treats in many languages, and styles and with many characters. But one thing’s for sure. Stories will be told.

UBUD STILL ON THE GO U b u d ’ s Goddess on the Go keeps ahead of international trends. This week global company Mac launched a new make-up line with a 90-year-old model; stock sold out in days. Goddess founder Janet Molloy said she’s never believed in the anorexic 20 year old look, instead the latest Goddess store banner features local ex-pat goddesses “who show you can be beautiful whatever your age”. Janet attended the Premier Vision Fashion Show in Paris last month on the hunt for more beautiful, wrinkle-free materials to add to the eco friendly travel and leisure clothing that keeps international visitors coming back. She says Lenzing’s Modal fabric, the main material used in the Goddess collection, is woven from sustainable bamboo and beech fibers that grow back quickly “with a minimal i m p a c t o n M o t h e r E a r t h ” . w w w. PERMACULTURE SEEDS FOR SALE! Ubud-based not-for-profit organization, IDEP, reports great results with a Bangli project where they are working with ten trained farmers to develop demonstration sites for sustainable agriculture. Following the permaculture project’s “astonishing success”, IDEP is now selling top quality organic seeds, to give farmers a relevant alternative to unhealthy GMO seeds. IDEP is also looking for partners to help distribute the seeds more widely. You can buy the organic seeds in Ubud at morning organic markets at Arma Resort (Wednesday) and Pizza Bagus (Saturday). IDEP’s mission is to “help Indonesians build safe and sustainable lives”. To learn more or donate to one of their many projects: http:// donate-today. KOLEKSI KECIL Bar Luna, o n e o f Ubud’s most successful l i t t l e nightspots, continues to bring us fascinating and varied entertainment. Until April 11, Bar Luna’s walls will display a small collection (Koleksi Kecil in bahasa) of beautiful photographic works by Australian artist Siddhartha Hewison. In Siddhartha‘s first exhibition in Bali he says he wants to share his joy and vision of beauty within the world, give a fresh and inspiring perspective, and celebrate this extraordinary planet. Bar Luna is tucked behind Nomad on Jalan Gautama. UBUD RING ROAD? Always rumours abound in Bali; this time, it’s a positive tale, I think. In a recent email to Wayan Jen, a shop owner on the newly paved stretch of Jl Raya Ubud wrote that the removal of the sidewalk on the southern side of the street is part of plans to make the whole road into a pedestrian mall. So, he says, “when the new bridge is finished for the new ring road, the whole of Jl Raya Ubud between Jl Hanoman and Jl Monkey Forest will become a car free zone”. Next questions: What new bridge? What “ring road”? MOZZIE TRAPS I’ve been testing out a nifty, eco-friendly, mosquito trap. Very cheap and efficient; the trap is made from a plastic drink bottle and contains only water, brown sugar and yeast. So far there are only a few cases of dengue mosquito reported in Ubud, but no-one likes the little whiners anyway. So: cut a plastic bottle in half, keep both parts. Take the lower portion of the bottle and dissolve 50gms of brown sugar in 200ml of warm water,



let it cool down to room temperature then add 1gm of yeast. (Carbon dioxide will form and will attract mosquitoes.) Cover the bottle with a dark wrap and insert the top portion upside down like a funnel. Place it in a corner in your house. You will be surprised at the number of mosquitoes killed.

It’s a very pleasant spot in the late afternoon; kids and adults cooling off in the pool, sunset peeking out through the palms behind the villas, and at least a couple of ex-pats drawn into some sort of fascinating conversation with the owner, ex-Aussie farmer John, who seems to have done a bit of everything and has some splendid tales to tell. Sugar’s staff invariably friendly, smiling and willing to go the extra mile – as for example last month when a local ex-pat had a key broken off in the lock, and they helped find an out-of-hours solution. The four little villas snuggled around the pool also worth a look. One day “swim pass”, 25,000rp. Jl Tirta Tawar. MY TEAM WON! Nothing nicer than being a part of the winning team, even if only as a supporter. T h i s y e a r, t h e gargantuan ogoh ogoh of Nyepi Eve did not gather in one place – perhaps because of reports of nasty human troublemakers down south that week. Instead, villages all around Ubud held their own parades. In the village of Junjungan, just north of Ubud, the boys in my local banjar paraded bravely through the rain to win the prize, against fierce competition, with this ghastly green monster overcoming his red rival.

Question: I have been with my boyfriend for 28 years and never talked about marriage while the kids were still living at home. Well, the kids are all gone now, and I feel that it is my turn for attention. For some reason, my boyfriend is now having the need to chase after other young and wild women, and I’m not happy with that kind of life. I have the need to settle down and enjoy life. Do I need to find myself a life and move on or be patient? Neither one of us is a spring chicken. Both of us are 52 years old. Dr. ZZ: If you have been living with your boyfriend as a committed couple for the past 28 years, then the two of you need to have a good sit-down conversation about what each of you expects from the relationship moving forward. You would probably have done well to have had such a talk a long time ago. Unless the two of you are on the same page now with the kids out of the house, it may be time for you to move on, to think of yourself, and to enjoy the next stage of your life. Even at age 52, it’s not too late to leave the nest. Question: I have been facing this problem for the longest time, and I don’t know how to handle it or what to do. My husband loves me more than life, and I love him too. But sometimes I just don’t understand. We start to make love, and everything is fine. He gets hard, and I feel good that he is attracted to me. Then he will stop to perform oral sex, and he goes limp. I know he knows that I sense it. At times I want to cry. At other times, I just feel angry. It happens quite often. If he starts kissing me, he does get aroused. But when he starts to touch me and do things to me, he just dies, and it really hurts me a lot. I don’t understand. It doesn’t seem normal. When it happens, I lose interest, and I don’t feel the same. I am no longer relaxed, and things just run through my mind. I never stop though. I always finish. But I am very hurt inside. He does finally get aroused again – don’t get me wrong -- but it takes a few minutes, and those few minutes are emotional torture for me. I do love him, and I need some advice on what to do. I wish so bad that he would get aroused by touching me, but it doesn’t seem like he does. I know he loves me. I know that for a fact. I am an attractive girl. I have a few minor body problems here and there, but I honestly don’t believe any of that is the issue. If you knew him you would understand how this man loves everything about me. I wish I could understand why this happens, and if it is a common

problem for some. He knows about my feelings on this, and he does realize that it happens. He claims it is not me and swears he is attracted to me. I have never experienced this before in my life. Every partner I ever had always responded to me in every way. Maybe he is losing interest in me and doesn’t even realize it. We have been together for close to 5 years, and this problem has been occurring for the last 2 years. Please help me. Dr. ZZ: It doesn’t seem as if you are looking at this correctly. The way I understand it, your husband loses his erection when he stops intercourse for other forms of stimulating you. He then gets his erection back in two minutes when intercourse starts again. You feel like this reflects on your desirability as a woman. Yet, from what you say, he does respond to you. He simply loses his erection when not having intercourse, and he soon gets it back again when he enters you. If anything, this is common. It in no way reflects upon you. You are turning this into a rejection, which it is not. If I understand this correctly, and if you continue to be bothered by this, then I would say YOU need to speak with someone about your self esteem. It sounds extremely fragile. From what you say, you and your husband have discussed this, and he has assured you that this is not your problem. It isn’t -- unless you make it that way. Feedback: Thank you Doc. Me and my husband talked about this, and he says the same as you. He had said the same thing way before I wrote to you. I do believe I have a self esteem problem. Throughout the years, my body has changed some. I am only 30, but after having my son, I have never looked the same again. I feel like I can’t gain control of it. My husband thinks I am way too hard on myself. I think he is right though I can’t make myself believe it. Maybe when we make love I should just try to let myself go and clear my mind. Perhaps I will find that the pause in his erection is not me. Maybe I can add a little spice into it to make it aroused again. Thank you so much for your advice. I think I will see someone regarding my selfesteem. I am really not an ugly girl, and my husband thinks I make too much out of looks anyway. That could be the problem.

Local Balinese Hero Helps the Homeless in England Nyoman Karta is a chef with a difference.

much and in so many ways.”

close and then asking for the leftovers.”

Until December 2010, Nyoman had been living and working in the Ubud area all his life. But things were about to change.

I asked Nyoman what other ways they were cared for and he explained, “The people had access to showers, laundry, telephone and internet facilities. They also had help in finding employment and were given medical care too. The food was subsidised and they were even given free clothes now and then.”

I asked Nyoman what else he did in England, “We went to the Suffolk Show and saw an impressive police dog competition and a chef competition. I watched one chef in particular who was cooking fish - I would have loved to take part in it. I saw an Apache helicopter that was used in Afghanistan and it was the first time I had seen a combine harvester. I was surprised by both its size and the amount it cost = £350,000 (nearly 5 billion rupiah). There was Babi Guling, which they called hog roast, but it had apple stuffing and was served in a bun, no rice or spices.”

With his friendly Balinese smile, a love of cooking and a desire to travel, Nyoman packed his bags and went to England. He stayed with his partner, Fiona, an occupational therapist in Ipswich, Suffolk and thoroughly enjoyed bonding with their four year old son Putu, known as Oscar by his friends.

When I asked how he related to the clients Nyoman replied, “All the staff were advised about the potential dangers of becoming too friendly and so I was always polite but did not get too close. However, sometimes when I saw the people on the street I gave them some fruit. The market traders sold fruit cheaply just before they closed for the day so it wasn’t too expensive and the people appreciated it.” “Surprisingly two of the clients had already been to Bali and Java before they had fallen on hard times. One of them even spoke to me in Bahasa Indonesian which was totally unexpected.”

Nyoman told me about some of the wonderful experiences of being with Oscar through the changing seasons in England. “We helped each other to make snowmen in the winter, learnt to cook gingerbread men together in the spring and went crabbing, cycling and to the park in the summer,” he explained. During the weekdays, when Putu was at pre-school, Nyoman felt the need to do something with his time. He particularly wanted to put his culinary skills to good use. An opportunity presented itself and, in a somewhat reverse role for a Balinese man in England, Nyoman became a volunteer cooking meals for the homeless.

I asked Nyoman what he thought about the fact that there is a need for such organisations like the Trust in England and he answered, “I think it’s sad that so many people are in such difficult circumstances and do not have any family to give them some support. It was an eye-opener for me to see so many people sleeping on the streets in such a developed country… it made me think ‘what is the problem?’ Balinese people generally assume that those in the west have more than they do, but it obviously isn’t always like that.” “Some people had fallen on hard times because of their financial or job situation, some were refugees, others were from broken homes or had mental health issues and then there were people who simply didn’t have anywhere to live.” Nyoman thought for a moment and then added, “a few people seemed to enjoy being lazy and getting food and support from the state, as it made life relatively easy for them.

“The Ipswich Umbrella Trust looks after people with mental health problems, the homeless and those with drug and alcohol issues,” Nyoman told me and continued, “Up to 30 people a day are cared for. Some of these people originally came from as far away as Poland, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan. There was a limited budget for the meals so I often took in herbs and spices from my garden, or that I had bought from the market, such as lemongrass, chili, garlic, turmeric, coriander and ginger. This gave the food much more flavour and the people lapped it up.”

As if this wasn’t enough, it appears that Nyoman also became something of a celebrity. One morning, while he was in the middle of cooking, there was a visit from two Members of Parliament as well as the local Councillor. This was subsequently reported in the local paper and included a photograph showing Nyoman, still wearing his apron, surrounded by the MP’s, Councillor and colleagues. “They were very friendly and said that I was doing a great job,” Nyoman said with a smile “I was pleased to help as it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience. It was also an opportunity to see the two sides of life in England. Our clients, as we called them, obviously had a very poor economy and had to deal with difficult circumstances in their lives but it was also good to meet the MP’s and Councillor who were trying so hard to help them.” He went on to say, “I think it is great that the Trust cares so

“It was the first time I had ever cooked a roast turkey and, of course, I used Jamie’s recipe and my family loved it. If I get the chance to go back to England I would love to cook a Christmas dinner using my own recipe, full of Balinese spices for the stuffing.” “Every day I cooked a different meal for my family and my son helped me with the preparation. He was enthusiastic and enjoyed the spicy tastes.” Still in food mode Nyoman told me how interesting the supermarkets were to him and that he had tasted horseradish sauce and rhubarb for the first time, hopefully not together I thought! One weekend he and his family went to Brighton where, after trying to swim in a cold sea, he visited his Sumatran friend, Nico, who had been running Warung Tujuh (Café Seven) for eight years. “Nico offered me a part-time job but obviously that wouldn’t provide enough money to live on as Brighton is very expensive. However, seeing them made me realise how much I missed my friends, family and my life in Ubud.” he explained.

“Hold on a minute,” I said, “Let me get this right…. you were in my home country, kindly giving your time and skills to help the vulnerable people there, and on top of that you took in herbs from your garden, and paid for some out of your own pocket, in order to give more flavour to their meals?” “Yes, that’s right” Nyoman replied, “The people told me how much they liked the food I cooked for them so I continued to take in more and more spices. I was given the responsibility of deciding what to cook each day, I also did the shopping and organised the kitchen, including cleaning up. I didn’t have any transport so in the morning I used to jog to the market and then to work, about 3 kilometers away, in time to prepare the lunches.”

Now he was clearly back on the theme of food and eager to tell me that his favourite chefs are Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver. He had bought ‘Jamie’s Christmas’ DVD which had the sub-title: ‘Cook your way to a stress-free Christmas’.

“Interestingly,” he said, “One of the volunteers was actually from Iraq and she had previously been a refugee herself.” Returning to the subject of food I asked Nyoman if he had taught the other volunteers how to make any Balinese dishes, “Chicken with lemongrass dressing and meatballs” he said, “Well, actually the meatballs were accompanied by pasta so I suppose it was more of an Italian dish really, but the cheese sauce had a definite spicy Balinese twist to it. It was not possible to teach them how to cook Nasi Campur or Nasi Goreng because there was never enough time available to prepare these dishes what with all the other snacks and tea and coffee that we were constantly busy cooking and serving.” Nyoman said that periodically the police came to check that there were no problems, especially with the clients who were alcoholic. I asked him if he had witnessed any trouble and he replied, “There were a couple of problems but we had a system to deal with them. If we pressed a button from the inside then the door automatically locked and set off an alarm at the police station. We were told to always call the police and never get involved ourselves. One aggressive man threw a chair and was shouting and swearing. It took the police a while to calm him down. “Sometimes the people were friendly, other times they were cruel. They tried to get food for free by waiting for the café to

“Of course, it was very difficult to leave Fiona and Putu, but a lovely thing happened when I left the Trust - the people asked me to come back soon and they wanted me to bring even more new recipes. I went to shake the hand of the other staff but they said ‘no’, they wanted a hug instead, which was really nice.” Nyoman received a glowing reference from the Project Manager which said that he had given considerably more than they expected from their volunteers. It praised his consistently calm approach to the people he dealt with and valued his culinary skills, not to mention that he provided the special spices that were enjoyed by all. On a final note, Nyoman’s English improved while he was there… he also told me that he picked up some East London cockney rhyming slang. So I will leave you with his words “I’m going down the apple and pairs and to the rub a dub!”. The translation, as if you need it, is “I’m going down the stairs and to the pub!” and I believe this Balinese hero really does deserve a Bintang or three. By Ketut Julie N.B. Nyoman is presently back in England with his family. Copyright © 2012 Bali Advertiser You can read all past articles of BA Feature Article at

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

A Fine Experience! Dining at CasCades offers you much more than just a restaurant experience. Whilst that is exceptional it is all the other little things that add to it to make it something to remember. What is fine dining in Europe is a world away. In Bali it is the setting, smiling but efficient service, world-class cuisine and an atmosphere that can only be experienced on a tropical holiday island, rather than the starched formality that the words ‘fine dining’ usually suggest. Begin with the setting and I doubt if there is a more impressive one available in Bali. The first style of ‘dining location’ that comes to mind when you mention Bali are the beach front/ocean view sites. As wonderful as some of these are it is the mountain top and river valley ones that appeal to me most. To arrive at CasCades late afternoon for pre-dinner aperitifs, just as the sun is setting, puts you in the mood for the evening ahead. Sitting at the intimate cocktail bar looking down over the river the only sound and movement is from the monkeys in the trees on the opposite bank, fighting over their evening’s resting position. This classic restaurant at the luxurious Viceroy has gone through a few chapters in its short life. It now serves a more International range of dishes but still from a kitchen deep in the tradition of fine dining French cuisine. The attention to detail in even the simplest dish is immediately obvious. The entrees are works of art. Scallops are seared and served with Jerusalem artichoke puree, mushroom farci, truffle emulsion and salmon caviar, all served on a large Chinese spoon, one big mouthful of flavour!. Marinated Tomato sounds very simple but it is a chilled slice of Roma tomato topped with a goat cheese mousse, greens and herb oil. The Duck Duo is a foie gras terrine with smoked duck, prosciutto and mustard fruit greens. You can sample all three of these entrees, with their distinctive individual tastes, in the Canape Plate. The Zucchini Flower has survived successive chefs but each has added his own personal touch. Now it is with vegetables in tempura batter and stuffed with a ricotta mousse and yellow pepper sauce. The Poached Prawn is with avocado, the Tortellini with garlic prawn, saffron and lemon buerre blanc. Wagyu Beef is with lemon aioli shaved parmesan and capers. Duck Liver, my all time favourite entrée, is French and just seared, as it should be, served with tropical fruits and a red wine grape reduction. In Bali’s warmer days and nights the Tomato Soup is very refreshing, It is served icy cold and combines tomato, cucumber, bell peppers, onion and basil cream. Then there is that classic, Lobster Bisque, richly intense with flavour,

cognac and lobster medallions added. The mains offer a mix of the old fashioned [what is wrong with that?] and new creations. Venison [so low in fat it gets the Heart Foundation big tick] is cut from the tenderloin, cocoa infused and lightly grilled. The venison is served with an unusual rabbit pastie, half a de-boned quail and a miniature toffee apple. It is a dish of contrasting tastes, all of which leave fond memories. The Lamb is amazing, still pink but firm enough to be cut with a knife. A meat so often ruined in Bali even when using top quality imported produce. Here it is served still on the bone accompanied by prosciutto wrapped sweetbreads, sweet potato and a black olive sauce. Don’t be shy, pick up the bones and strip the last shreds of meat off with your teeth, it is the only way to finish this dish with respect. Chicken Roulade combines an outer shell made from thigh and hindquarter rolled around a chicken breast and cepe mushroom mousse, potato gratin on the side. The Beef [black Angus] Tenderloin can be paired with 50gm of seared French foie gras, a Steak Rossini if I recall correctly from the 60’s? The steak is served whole, not sliced and played around with in the kitchen, it actually looks like a steak, amazing in this day of ‘over the top’ table presentation.

Lobster is a whole [small but tender] Lombok special. It is not served the traditional way in the shell but removed from it, so you do not have to do battle using your fork as a lever to remove the meat! It has been tossed in Thai spiced sabayon and lime spinach. Fillets of Barramundi are in buerre blanc with scallop and prawn in kaffir lime, with a ginger potato cake. The Indonesian component to the menu includes a Duck Breast done with local spices, those used for the Balinese betutu, and served with yellow rice. The Rendang Sapi is like never before, Sumatran style beef [but with Wagyu] slowly braised and served with coconut rice, caramelized coconut shavings and a salad of beans. Vegetarian dishes include an Indonesian Red Rice with asparagus, mushrooms and ricotta cheese. Risotto of pumpkin and asparagus with crushed hazelnuts and shaved Parmesan and a Vegetarian Cannelloni stuffed with roasted vegetables, and vinaigrette of roasted tomatoes. For those who wish to taste the chef’s selection there is a Degustation Menu [5 courses] for Rp.850,000++ or Rp. 1,600,000++ with matching wines.

This Sporting Life


With the Bali International Cricket 6’s coming up this Easter weekend, This Sporting Life takes a look at the state of cricket in Bali. With some new tournaments and a flourishing local junior cricket scene, cricket is bouncing back from the growing pains of a new sport in Bali. In a clear sign of this evolution, we see a non traditional sport like cricket imported from overseas being played more in Balinese schools, than in the International schools which augers well for any new sport.

John would welcome more Bali teams preferably with predominantly local players. The four (or more) teams play each other twice and then will have semi finals with the top team playing the fourth team and the 2nd team playing the 3rd team with the two winning teams playing in the grand final on Sunday 27th May with the trophy presentation and wind-up later in the evening with buffet dinner and some amber fluid to be consumed by the players and their guests. JUNIOR CRICKET

Together with the Bali 10’s Rugby tournament, the Bali International Cricket 6’s is the oldest continuing sports event in Bali ,which started in the 90’s, with teams from Australia, Indonesia and SE Asia regularly attending over the Easter Weekend. And this year is no different with 14 teams, including a team from Surrey in England.

Meanwhile thanks to the efforts of Wayan Suandi (Denpasar) & Made Erawan (Gianyar), junior cricket continues to flourish in the Balinese schools of these areas, though oddly, not in the international schools. In the recently held Walikota (Mayor) Cup over 100 kids from 7 Balinese schools took part in the 2 day event and in the upcoming Porsenijar in Gianyar, will see over 500 kids from around 20 primary and junior/senior high schools taking part in the cricket tournament. The 3rd Annual Walikota Cup was held on the 24 & 25th February 2012 at the Kompiang Sujana Stadium in Denpasar. RESULTS:

LOCAL TEAMS Banten CC Indonesia The Bali Tigers Indorama University of Indonesia Papatong Udayana Veterans Kingfisher Veterans UCC

(Junior High Schools) Champions: SMPN 11 2nd Place: SMP Nasional 3rd Place: SMPN 6

All the action will be on at the Udayana Cricket Oval in the bukit over the Easter Weekend. All Welcome. TWENTY/20 This year we have a new tournament in May, in the words of the organizer John Stewart, “the Tournament will be called the “Bali International Twenty20 Cup”. It will be played over the period 19th May to the 27th May 2012 with 2 games everyday except Wednesday when they will have a day off”. Currently there are only four teams confirmed as one of the Australian teams has just cancelled their nomination which is very unfortunate. Therefore John is looking for two teams to nominate and take part in the tournament. Any teams interested please contact John on johnstewart137@ There are two Bali teams nominated, one from Udayana Cricket Club (primarily local players) and the other a combination team called Mick’s Select team which has players from all over Bali and are primarily ex-pats.

(Senior High Schools) Champions: SMKN 1 2nd Place: SMAN 5 3rd Place: SMKN 2 Congratulations to I Wayan Suandi (National Team Player & Denpasar Head Coach of Development) & I Nyoman Yudha (Head of PengCab Cricket Denpasar) with the assistance from the rest of Team Cricket Denpasar for putting on another great event for the Denpasar kids & for effectively continuing the growth of cricket in the Denpasar area. BEACH CRICKET For those who may be interested Wayan Samuel recent Tournament Director of the BSF Sanur Village Festival Beach Cricket (the first Beach Cricket tournament ever held in Indonesia), is holding weekly beach cricket games on Double6 Beach. For times and exact location (will vary due to tides), please contact or 081936284877

04 April - 18 April, 2012

Update Sakala is doing the impossible. Establishing a fine dining restaurant, beachfront, along Tandjung Benoa a stretch that was formerly home to just a long row of tourist restaurants, many with same-same menu. With a French Canadian chef and a French restaurant manager they set out to do it different and have they ever! The difference begins with the entrees. Everyone serves Foie Gras these days in Bali but at Sakala it is imported from Lande in France, the ultimate. The Butternut Squash Soup is an example of how relatively simple dishes can take you by surprise. Already intensely flavoured the floating shreds of grilled lobster only enhance a great dish. 12 hour braised Wagyu beef cheeks and slow cooked lamb rack are both incredible dishes perfectly executed but it is the Kangaroo tenderloin that really excites [pictured]. Kangaroo meat [similar to buffalo and venison] has a very low fat content [so healthy] and therefore kitchen technique is paramount to ensure a moist texture, overcooking leaves it dry and horrible. At Sakala experience wins through, perfect! It is served with caramelized pear, gratinated root vegetables and a pepper sauce with red berries and rosemary. The best way to sample the delights of Sakala on your 1st visit is to take either the Epicurean 8 course tasting menu or their Discovery menu, this way you will discover taste sensations that you may not otherwise order. Sakala is most definitely worth the visit to Tandjung Benoa.

La Tartine is French! So French that it is hard to believe you are in Bali! More a café than a restaurant it is on The ByPass Ngurah Rai in Sanur, in front of the Hotel Puri Tempo Doeloe which is under the same French management. Tartines are French open-face sandwiches. Black smoked ham is a common topping here, with a variety of extras all combined with a grilled cheese topping; simple seed mustard, boiled potatoes, scrambled eggs and crème fraiche or grilled vegetables, all on two rounds of perfect toasted rye. Another version is with ricotta on slices of spiced bread, Instead of ham you can have a fish base, egg or just vegetables. A variety of fresh organic salads include a Vietnamese one wrapped in rice paper with nuoc nam dipping sauce. Egg Cocottes are also a house specialty [steamed egg served in a glass], and their Burgers are very different; beef on rye, chicken schnitzel or pastrami. Hachis Parmentier is the French version of an English Shepherds Pie. Minced beef cooked with onions and herbs topped with a layer of mashed potato before being baked in the oven. From Basque country is a Chicken Stew, chicken leg in white wine with tomato, capsicum, bacon, potato, rosemary and thyme. A couple of local dishes on the menu include Tempe Goreng Manis, cooked with red and green peppers, sweet soy and fresh ginger. Air-conditioned and non-smoking inside [special bales for smokers in the car park], walk into a French café!

Segara Mas

was yet another newcomer along the restaurant highway of Jln. Raya Puputan in Renon last year. Many restaurants and cafes offer free wi-fi, it is almost an essential, but Segara Mas also offers free meeting rooms which is very different. The menu was enormous, in the Chinese tradition, but obviously did not work as they now advertise a supposed Fusion mix of Seafood and Mexican. I quickly went hoping to find Salmon served with a sauce from Yucatan only to discover that their idea of ‘fusion’ is that the menu is in two halves but with no connection. The seafood is mostly whole fresh water fish done all the usual Indonesian ways. Traditional Mex is the 2nd half of the menu with large taco shells housing the salads, and the Chilli con Carne using minced chicken instead of the normal beef. All the usual Mex dishes include tacos, enchiladas, burritos, nachos and quesadillas.

Bali Cardamon is on Jln. Pratama, Tandjung Benoa. They attempt to put a modern international face on traditional Indonesian food and do quite a reasonable job at that. The slow-roasted Pork Belly with an anise-kecap manis reduction, amid mushrooms in chive oil with their home-made pork sausage is just about their best although the Salmon poached in lemongrass broth sitting on a pile of steamed bok choy, corn and tomatoes is not far behind. Other combinations include Kampung Chicken prepared Manado style braised with a mix of herbs, candlenut, chilli and Kaffir lime. This is served with Nasi Lemang [glutinous rice in coconut milk].

Pop’s Tasty Grill must be Bali’s most unusual restaurant. It is a bamboo structure perched above a mini mart on Jln. Raya Petitenget, Kerobokan. They offer 3 ‘All You Can Eat’ packages from their wood-fired BBQ. Ribs & Steak [pork ribs, Australian tenderloin and N.Z.Scotch fillet…Rp.99,000], Fish & Scallops [tuna steak in honey mustard, mahi-mahi in saffron and mint and scallops in butter…Rp.69,000] and Chicken & Sausage [coconut chicken wings, chorizo, Swiss cheese sausage and boneless chicken leg…Rp.79,000] All combinations are served with baked potatoes, beer corn, stuffed mushrooms and mixed salad. Izakaya Ueno has long been established on Jn. Raya Papuan, Renon. It is almost hidden

behind a jungle of a garden and big fence but still commands a regular following. Seemingly out of place in this street of very cheap Indonesian eating houses, it more than holds its own on the value front. Almost the only dish over $5 is one using imported eel. They offer the usual full sized Japanese menu with entrée snacks of Gyoza [steamed and pan-fried dumplings], Yakitori [grilled chicken on bamboo sticks, drizzled with that sauce of mirin, sake and soy], and Tsukune [balls of minced chicken, dipped in sweet soy]. Chicken Teriyaki, Arabiki Sausage, Yakiniku [thin pieces of meat grilled at the table and dipped in sauces, a Korean invention since modified by the Japanese], a variety of Tempura and a range of Ramen, Soba and Udon noodle dishes as well as all the normal varieties of sushi and sashimi. The prices will amaze!

Cafe Dijon, the Ubud branch, is about to transform itself from anytime café to an evening

restaurant. After dark a special dinner menu is now added to the current all day version. Interesting dishes and the budget prices are sure to attract many new customers. Simple entrees include pan-seared Scallop [in shell] with a red onion confit, Stuffed Portobello Mushroom with cous cous and Steamed Asparagus with a pesto mayo. Mains begin with a 5 spice marinated Duck Breast, braised Lamb Shank, grilled Salmon with butter rice and sautéed asparagus in a red pepper sauce and Scallops Rosini, scallops with mushrooms and asparagus and risoni [barley pasta]. Some quality food on Jln. Sanggingan, at the top end of town! Gerry Williams For more information see our website: NC/Ns/I-13 july 11

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

What is Wayang Wong? Part I If you are interested in Balinese traditional art-forms, many of you would have heard of wayang kulit: the shadow puppet show; however, the human version of these puppets, called wayang wong, is probably less familiar. It is not entirely clear when this art-form first appeared in Bali. Professor Made Bandem, author of Wayang Wong, presents evidence to suggest that it could have existed “... as far back as the 11th century.” The drama adopts excerpts of stories from India’s two greatest epics, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, with the key difference in the performance being the use of masks: for a Mahabharata performance the actors don’t wear masks apart from the clowns; whereas for the Ramayana all the performers are masked. C/G/G-5 Oct. 11

A wayang wong troupe involves a large number of characters, which may range between around 20 to 60 depending on the story chosen. With each dancer costumed in gold-gilded cloth and leather, as well as colourful, exquisitely carved masks, the upkeep such a troupe can be a financial concern for many villages that have inherited a wayang wong tradition. The traditional accompaniment for wayang wong are a quartet of 10-keyed gender wayang metallophones, augmented by drums and gongs, as well as a vocalist that will sing and speak for the masked dancers who cannot be heard under the wooden masks. A wayang wong performance is presented in two languages: ancient Balinese (Kawi) and Balinese (spoken in two forms: high and everyday, depending on who is talking to whom). Characters are introduced by either the servants (for good characters) or the clowns (for evil ones) in a typically formal manner that would seem repetitive and overdone to modern audiences, but this is typical of ancient drama in Indonesia. Therefore, a performance may last for several hours. Some active wayang wong troupes are still found in Tejakula (Buleleng), Telepud (Gianyar), Tangkup (Gianyar), Mas (Gianyar), Tunjuk (Tabanan) and Sanur (recently reconstructed).

HECTOR’S C/G/I-11 Jan 12

Off With the Pixels Australia Network, the officially funded Asia-Pacific TV satellite channel run by the ABC, is always strapped for cash. It gets its money from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and is tasked with presenting an Australian image to the near abroad, so to speak. It does a lot of good things with the modest stipend it gets from the government in Canberra (note to Bob Carr, new Foreign Minister: do something really useful and get it some more money so it doesn’t have to show us ancient examples of blinding selfabuse such as of The Gruen Transfer circa 2008) but its total annual budget would barely fund one of those awful reality TV shows everyone seems to like to watch nowadays. (It is difficult to think why they do, except from madness or possibly ennui. Oscar Wilde once described foxhunting as the unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable, and of course he was dead right, as he so often was. A similarly fatal rapier thrust is urgently required to dismiss the relevance and taste of the disreputable modern sport of figjamming, especially as seen on reality shows.) Australia Network is not targeted at Aussies who live beyond the boundaries of the Special Biosphere, even if they do tend to watch it for news from home and, occasionally, TV drama shows in a language they can understand (this rules out most Kiwi programmes). We know this, having once asked that precise question. So given that the Diary is in that underclass – of Australia Network viewers about whom the operators affect a Rhett Butler air, frankly not giving a damn – the following complaint may well fall on deaf ears. A new drama on air is Rake, starring the insouciant Richard Roxburgh playing yet another reprehensible but occasionally insightful roué, this time a barrister. It’s a good show, but it’s made for audiences accustomed to naked butts and bosoms on screen and these are pixellated out on Australia Network. Since the ubiquitous naughty words are bleeped out as well, watching the drama itself is difficult. You tend to watch for the pixels and listen for the bleeps and lose the plot completely, even in the brief interludes during which it is remotely visible. The thought occurs that if nudity and foul language are judged unacceptable for Australia Network’s target audiences – and the censorious proclivities of their governments – the programming is wrong. Of course, how you then effectively reflect popular Australian culture – given its preference for bad language, near-nakedness and self-centred disrespect for almost everything – is another matter.

Welcome to Purgatory Legian resident Vyt Karazija – a good friend and eminently readable blogger – recently posted a cri de coeur that really should be read by anyone who still thinks Bali is a paradise populated exclusively by caring, sensitive, sentient souls in touch with their inner Muse. And then they should weep. It concerns a young Balinese woman whose life is being ruined by her grasping family, who wrench from her all the money she makes an enormous effort to earn. It would not be an unusual story either; which makes it worse. You can – and you should – read it at www.borborigmus. Look for the post headlined Suffering in Silence Behind the Smile.

Hello, Kitty Villa Kitty, the cat refuge at Ubud that is celebrating its first birthday, had a fundraising night at Indus restaurant on March 27. We’re sure it all went well. Villa Kitty founder and Chief Meow, Elizabeth Grant Suttie, who in her other hat is personal assistant to Ubud identity Janet DeNeefe, is a fine organiser and a dedicated animal lover. She tells us the fundraiser was brought forward from its original planning date due to the generosity of Edwina Blush, the sexy, sassy Australian jazz vocalist, songwriter, poet and (as Blush’s website self-describes) provocateuse. Someone once wrote of Blush that “she must have a tail under that gown”; and maybe that’s why she’s singing for the kitties, as it were. Or perhaps it is just that some people are cat people (the Diary is such) and it’s all in a good cause. Villa Kitty needs to expand, we’re told, because it’s proving such a popular place with felines seeking accommodation. We wish the establishment the very best of good fortune and we’ll keep up to date with its developing story.

Time Goes By The delightful publicist Hellen Sjuhada, who among other things helps keep that haven of Catalan cuisine, El Kabron at Bingin Beach, in the public eye, tweeted the other day that she was old enough to remember when MTV played music videos. We sent a little tweet in response, noting that

we were old enough to remember when there was no MTV. She replied in turn, saying she took her hat off to us. We said we were trying to age gracefully and that perhaps her hat might help. But that’s the trick, when at the more mature end of whatever is one’s unknown allotment of Essential Vivacity: to age gracefully, which among other things surely means keeping abreast of technology. Well OK, disgracefully is all right too, and it’s a lot more fun. But the real time-saver is to keep up with the pack. That’s why here at The Cage we’re right into gizmos. They cannot be allowed to bamboozle and must be conquered. We’re working on that. It might be all downhill from here ... but hey, as any former snow-skier can attest, it can all go so well until, finally, that unavoidable magnetic tree collects you.

Silly Clod Why anyone would seek to break out of their villa at Nyepi defies belief. Why anyone would seek to do so merely to go in search of milk elevates the level of stupidity to stratospheric height. Yet this is apparently what an American villa owner in Seririt, Buleleng, chose to do on Friday, March 23, in an area where Nyepi rules are strictly enforced and where as a result his villa was blockaded by angry villagers. His name, according to reports, is Claude. Perhaps he should be known as Clod. Nyepi might be an onerous imposition to people in Bali who are not Hindu, but there are ways round that. If it’s all too much, decamp to a designated tourism entity, where by convenient fiat some services continue and the lights remain more or less on. Or if you really want to make a noise, go to the Gilis off Lombok. Or you could do what we did here at The Cage. We stayed home (having made sure we had sufficient milk for the duration) and stayed quiet. We didn’t observe the full requirements of Nyepi. But we kept lighting to an absolute minimum and made sure none escaped our villa; that no noise got past the gate; and that the holy customs and practices of our Hindu neighbours were entirely undisturbed. That’s not only common sense; it’s also good manners. Mea Culpa: In the Diary of March 21 we wrote that since Muslims would be allowed to go to mosque on Silent Day, it being a Friday, the authorities should provide the same privilege to Christians when Nyepi fell on a Sunday. An Indonesian friend who is a practising Christian tells us this is already the case.

True to Herself Some of us live on Facebook – not literally you understand, it’s more of a virtual vitality – and some of us pay a price for this devotion. Some of us, for example, have Dear Spouses who wouldn’t touch Facebook with the grottier end of a used toe-rag, and say so quite often. But there you go.

Those among us who do use Facebook for rational reasons – those in other words who do not use it as their personal diary or for marginal notes on their day – generally get good results. Hector’s helper, for example, has many virtual friends, some of whom are actual people known to him. He says it’s great to be able to keep in contact in real time rather than waiting for the time-worn stuff that used to be stuffed into real mailboxes. Then there are the others, collected as Friends rather in the manner that one might acquire buddies at a bar. These come and go. Hec’s helper recently lost a Dear Friend who rejoiced in the name of Ivana Logov. Apparently, she finally worked out how to do that.

Bitter Glitter We love a pun, as countless people have come to learn, some of them, poor things, believing this to be at their cost. And we’ve just been reminded of this little gem: King Ozymandias of Assyria was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. So, desperate, he went to Croesus the pawnbroker to ask for a loan. Croesus said: “I’ll give you 100,000 dinars for it.” The king protested: “But I paid a million dinars for it. Don’t you know who I am? I am the king!” Said Croesus: “When you wish to pawn a star, it makes no difference who you are.”

KOTO is now a non profit restaurant and vocational training program that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam. Every six months, KOTO takes around 25 young people off the streets or from extremely difficult life circumstances. These trainees are given thorough health checks and vaccinations, and provided with uniforms, laundry, lunch everyday, shared accommodation, ongoing medical care and a monthly training allowance. KOTO’s unique 24 month programme results in graduates who well skilled, employable and ‘well-rounded’ individuals who are able to move forward with their lives and secure stable employment. They are empowered with the ability to support themselves and their families, and through this, break the cycle of poverty. Jimmy Pham will visit Bali with some of his chefs and show and talk about the work of KOTO and how they plan to bring hope to Bali’s street kids.

Workshop - It’s All About Love (28 April – 4 May) I think at some stage we’ve all been wounded by love whether it was a first boyfriend or a difficult separation and one thing is certain, the wounds of love have touched many. Some people find it easy to find love and others put up protective barriers and vow never to be hurt again, blocking potential for new love. This workshop may appeal if you’ve consciously or subconsciously erected barriers and want to move on and forward and be open to a relationship. ‘It’s About Love, Removing the Barriers’ is the title of this experiential workshop led by the proclaimed international author, Jeremiah Abrams. This retreat provides the necessary skills and tools to renew the potential for love by removing the barriers to finding love. In this workshop, the power of love and intimacy will be explored with master practitioner and teacher Jeremiah Abrams who brings 40 years professional experience with him. Jeremiah Abrams is a Jungian therapist and author of many books, his latest ‘Healing the Wounds of Love.’ The workshop includes Shamanic journeys to call forth and encounter the wounds that are up for healing, training in C. G. Jung’s pschological types in order to understand natural perceptions of the self and others and to promote inquiry and reflection about the flow of love during interactions. The 5-stage model of relationship will also be learned and exercises to enact the practical changes necessary to end negative patterns in love. Daily yoga and meditation and training in dream interpretation are all part of the course. There are many long term benefits to undertaking this type of course including the expansion of the capacity to give and receive love, improvements in all interactions and the ability to create healthier, lasting and satisfying relationships. The retreat includes 6 nights luxury accommodation, local transport and excursions, three scrumptious meals a day and all seminars. Like anything else, relationships require effort and work if they are to be fulfilling and meaningful and if you feel that you need to lower your barriers and heal the wounds of love then this workshop is going to make a huge difference.

Unsafe web sites

C/CI/I-28 Dec 11

Now that your email is safe (see last article), it’s time to alert you to bad web sites:

Shortened links that lead you to potentially harmful places The place: Twitter Scammers love Twitter since it relies so much on URL shorteners, services that take long internet addresses and replace them with something briefer. And it’s very simple to hide malware or scams behind shortened URLs. A shortened link that supposedly points to the latest Internet trend-du-jour may be a Trojan horse in disguise. If you have to go there: Simply don’t click links. Of course, that takes some of the fun out of Twitter. The other option is to use a Twitter client app. TweetDeck and Tweetie for Mac have preview features that let you see the full URL before you go to the site in question. Some link-shortening services, such as, attempt to filter out malicious links, but it seems to be a manual process, not an automatic one. TinyURL has a preview service you can turn on.

C/Ci/I-7 March 12

Email scams or attachments that get you to install malware or give up personal info The place: Your email inbox Although phishing and infected email attachments are nothing new, the lures that cybercrooks use are constantly evolving, and in some cases they’re becoming more difficult to distinguish from legitimate messages. My junk mailbox has a phishing email that looks like a legitimate order confirmation from Amazon. The only hint that something’s amiss is the sender’s email address. If you have to go there: Don’t trust anything in your inbox. Instead of clicking on links in a retailer’s e-mail, go directly to the retailer’s site.

C/Ci/I-21 March 12

Malware hiding in video, music, or software downloads The place: Torrent sites Torrent sites (such as BitTorrent) are often used for sharing pirated music, videos, or software, and are a trove of malware. No one vets the download files - they may be malware in disguise. Ben Edelman, privacy researcher and assistant professor at Harvard Business School, thinks torrent sites are the most dangerous places to visit, since they don’t have a business model or reputation to defend (by comparison, many porn sites rely on being deemed trustworthy). “The [torrent] customers really don’t want to pay,” he says. C/CI/G - 25 Jan. 12

If you have to go there: It’s probably best to avoid torrent sites entirely, given their untrustworthy content, but if you must visit, use a secondary PC to protect your main system. Use antivirus software, and keep it up dated. Scan downloaded files and wait a couple of days before opening them. Brand-new malware can be tricky to catch, but the delay in opening may allow your antivirus software to get the necessary signatures.

Malware in photos or videos of scantily clad women The place: ‘Legitimate’ porn sites Porn sites have a reputation of being less secure than mainstream sites, but that assumption doesn’t tell the whole story. “There is no doubt that visiting websites of ill-repute is deadly dangerous. If you make a habit of it, it’s a given that you’ll be attacked at some point,” says Roger Thompson, chief research officer with security firm AVG. “Unfortunately, staying away from those sites won’t keep you safe by itself, because innocent sites get hacked all the time, and are used as lures to draw victims to the attack servers.”

Rajawali System Solution

And as mentioned earlier, many porn sites operate as actual, legitimate businesses that want to attract and retain customers. That said, it may be hard to tell the ‘legit’ porn sites from malware-hosting sites that use porn as a lure. If you have to go there: Be suspicious of video downloads, or sites that require you to install video codecs to view videos (see the next threat, below). Using tools like AVG’s LinkScanner and McAfee’s SiteAdvisor can help you weed out the malicious sites. And, again, consider visiting such sites on a secondary machine. You don’t want your browser history on the family PC.

Trojan horses disguised as video codecs, infecting your PC with malware The place: Video download sites, peer-to-peer networks If you watch or download video online, you’ve likely been told to download a video codec--a small piece of software that provides support for a type of video file--at least once. Usually, these bits of software are perfectly legitimate (for example, the popular DivX codec), but some less-than-reputable download services or video sites may direct you to download a piece of malware disguised as a codec. Security software company Trend Micro provides a good example of what these attacks look like. If you have to go there: Your safest option is to stick with well-known video sites such as YouTube and for catching up on the latest episodes of your favorite TV shows, sites and services like BBC iPlayer, SeeSaw and iTunes are safer than peer-to-peer networks. ============================================================================================ Have a question or problem?

by Dr. Rob Painting@Drawing Group Exhibition of Paintings and Drawings At Tonyraka Art Gallery, Jl. Raya Mas 86, Ubud Tel: 7816785 Currently, the Tonyraka Art Gallery in Ubud is holding an exhibition entitled ‘Painting@Drawing’, by 17 artists from Bali, Jogjakarta and Bandung. These artists include: Agung Manguputra, Chusin Setiadikara, Dewa Ngakan Ardana, Diyano Purwadi, Dewa Putu Mokoh, Gusti Ayu Kadek Murniasih, Ida Bagus Putu Purwa, Ketut Teja Astawa, Made Mahendra Mangku, Mada Wiguna Valasara, Mimi Fadmi, Nyoman Wijaya, Pius Sigit Kuncoro, Putu Wirantawan, Wayan Kun Adnyana, Wayan Suja, and Cundrawan. The exhibition has been curated by Arif Bagus Prasetya, and, in his excellent catalogue essay, he states that the drawing-based paintings selected for the exhibition show a way to see an “evolution of drawing” in contemporary art practice. Arif suggests that drawing can be seen as an essential element of painting, and he specifically highlights drawing as a superior element of painting, the main part which determines the character of the painterly subject, or the character of the painter, the expression of thoughts and feelings of the artist. Arif finds that drawing is the element which embodies the artist’s “style”. The ‘Painting@ Drawing’ exhibition seeks to reveal insights about how contemporary artists create new levels of complexity in the practice of drawing, which expands and enriches traditional drawing practices. Further, the exhibition aims to show an increasing appreciation of drawing in contemporary art, as well as the ways in which drawing continues to evolve, and re-creates itself. Arif Bagus Prasetya feels that there are at least two reasons for the reemergence of drawing in contemporary art. Firstly, there is an increased awareness of the importance of drawing as a means for development in various creative domains. Currently, traditional differences that separate creative domains, such as those between ‘fine art’ and ‘design’, have faded or even vanished. Drawing plays an important role in the constructive and abstract functions of design. Drawing skills are believed to be beneficial to the development of hand and eye coordination, found at the core of art and design. Secondly, the reemergence of drawing is part of a broadside against Modernism, against what is perceived to be its lack of soul. The reemergence of drawing, however, is also accompanied by the fact that developments in computer technology have tended to erode drawing skills. With the availability of advanced technological devices that facilitate the processes of painting, such as computers, graphics software, digital-cameras, projectors and printingmachines, does a painter in the digital age need to master basic painting skills, including drawing skills, which rely on the ability of the hand and eye? This is a critical question which is encouraging the reemergence of basic drawing skills.

Traditionally, drawing is defined as a mark, either graphite, ink, charcoal, or chalk, on a flat plane, usually paper. Because of its difference from the color and pigment of paint, drawing can be defined as the most fundamental visual artistic activity. Drawing’s basic ingredients of strokes Singgasana 2 or marks can have a direct symbolic relationship with a viewed experience. The traditional notion of drawing is a feature of a number of works in the exhibition. Black-and-white or monochromatic images on paper or canvas appear in the works of Wayan Kun Adnyana, Diyano Purwadi, Dewa Ngakan Made Ardana, and, in Manguputra’s work ‘Singgasana 2’. Some of the artists involved in the exhibition question the boundaries between drawing and painting, and combine black-and-white images, a typical feature of drawing, with colored images, a typical feature of painting. The work ‘Kids of Songan’, by Chusin Setiadikara, blurs the Kids of Songan differences between ‘painting’ as a composition of colored surfaces, and ‘drawing’ as a composition of graphic lines. In the case of ‘watercolor drawing’, the outlines are visible on the painted surface. The lines drawn with color are difficult to control, as they just emerge. Color and line coincide in watercolors. Mimi Fadmi’s work ‘Rosa Luxemburg Platz’ reflects Rosa Luxemburg Platz this general idea of watercolors as a medium in which painting and drawing meet. The representational paintings of Wayan Suja refer to the appearances of reality. Instead of trying to imitate appearances, Suja is primarily concerned with the interpretation of appearances, with discovering what can be known through personal experience. Suja Plastic Rhetoric places a strong emphasis on painterly texture. Images of plastic can be found in his work ‘Plastic Rhetoric’. This intense textural rendering of painterly surfaces reflect a drawing activity in which strokes or marks on the canvas have a relationship with experience, rather than a similarity with the real. Teja Astawa transforms the characteristics of traditional Balinese drawing into contemporary paintings. He applies a traditional Balinese drawing technique to construct linear, hard-edged images. He uses this technique, which in a way suggests cool and analytical attitudes, to produce warm and intuitive paintings. Teja Astawa’s

work ‘Patroli’ transgresses the boundaries between drawing and painting by combining impulsive doodles with careful renderings of colored areas. By adding visual storytelling to traditional drawing, drawing can move into a fourth dimension, wandering across time and space. Patroli Pius Sigit Kuncoro develops the notion of ‘drawing as storytelling’ to dramatize events and create suspenseful dramatic actions. His painting ‘Ngrembug Si Anak Petheng’ shows the ability of drawing to be a medium for graphic storytelling and poignant visual journalism. The ‘Painting@Drawing’ exhibition contains many excellent examples of Ngrembug Si Anak Petheng works, from many talented Indonesian artists, all of whom are reflecting an important changing attitude towards drawing in the realm of contemporary art in Indonesia.

Breaking up Can be Hard to Do Beyond Eat Pray Love By Skye Laphroaig

Based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s best-selling memoir, the film Eat Pray Love tells the story of a modern woman who seemingly has everything - yet leaves it all behind to search for what she really wants. Her journey of self-discovery takes her around the world, where she restores the pleasure of eating in Italy, unearths the power of prayer in India, and finally discovers unexpected, inner peace and the balance of true love in Bali.

her intimate knowledge of Bali owner/operator Nicole Long will be on hand 24 hours a day to guide everyone at their own pace. An Eat Pray LIVE weekly package includes airport transfers, welcome pack, 7 nights accommodation, breakfast, 7 massages, 2 manicures, 2 pedicures, a cleansing ceremony, a visit to meet the medicine man and for the girls a 1.5 hr make-up lesson. In addition, Nicole will recommend and organise any additional experiences such nutritional advice, holistic beauty treatments and activities. Knowing the Balinese and their strong belief in the healing powers of water, I contacted a former client, to hear more about the cleansing ceremony she attended during an Eat Pray LIVE retreat last year. Katrina, who is a marketing manager from Sydney, was feeling stressed from the corporate world and fragile from a break up with her ex; she was looking for a sense of ‘something else’. “Before my trip to Bali, I read Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love, a humorous account of spending a year in Italy, India and Bali after a bad divorce” said Katrina. “The word Eat represents her four months in Italy, filling her void with food while learning Italian. Pray embodies the four months spent at an Ashram in India in meditation and worship. And Love describes her four months finding peace and love in Bali. I was seeking new friends and great memories, so a trip to Bali seemed appropriate”.

Two years ago British born Nicole Long was inspired by Gilbert’s story and made a trip to the magical ‘Island of the Gods’ to face her own personal pain from a couple of hard break-ups and difficult childhood. During the creation of her business Eat Pray LIVE Nicole recognised the need to offer a personal healing service to men and women who were suffering from relationship break-ups or caught in the complications of modern life. Nicole’s distinctive Eat Pray LIVE vacations, offer people from all walks of life a chance to open their hearts and receive the blessings of this spiritual paradise as they rest, and rejuvenate in the healing balm of Bali.

In the book, Gilbert’s journey is inspired by a Medicine man called Ketut Liyer (meaning Bright Light), who gives her a drawing of a human figure with four legs, some ferns instead of a head, and a smiling face drawn over the heart. He tells her she needs to be ‘grounded’ as if on four legs and use her heart instead of continually living in her head. When she returns to Bali two years later, Ketut has difficulty recognizing her since she has transformed from worry and sorrow into joy and happiness and she spends the next four months learning about his amazing healing ways.

Just as the song suggests - breaking up can be hard to do. But if you’re fed up with moping around the house, consuming calorific comfort food, and whining that you’ll never find love again, Eat Pray LIVE offers a unique retreat experience for those seeking self-discovery, healing and relaxation over the space of a few days. Forget the concept of silent retreats, (with eyes gazing at the middle distance), the real challenge is your soul quest, your true purpose, and in physical sojourns, the clock is forever ticking. During an Eat Pray LIVE retreat, you’ll get the chance to visit a traditional Medicine man (healer), attend an authentic purification ceremony, choose from an international menu of natural therapies to bring about spiritual, emotional or physical benefits, enjoy sunset cocktails over shimmering waters and try something new like surfing, diving or swimming with dolphins. MISSING OUT ON MORE SINGLE FUN Big cities such as Sydney are challenging places for a woman in her 30’s to be single. In the Eastern Suburbs alone, there’s a woman to man ratio of around 3:1, which is creating a society where guys are spoilt for choice and are perhaps reluctant to fall in love. These days people are getting married and having kids at a much later age. Men feel less pressure to choose a partner/ wife, get married, and start a family. This may give them a sense of freedom but they miss out on the satisfaction of domestic relations. Whereas single women in their 30‘s, 40s and 50s are increasingly feeling their love-lives are over, as men their own age use online dating services to cherry-pick younger models. So why are people reluctant to make commitments? Maybe a man thinks that if he takes a girl out again, he’ll probably like her even more, and eventually they’ll fall in love, get married, have children, and then grandchildren and eventually they’ll retire and take a trip around the world. One day they will be walking hand-in-hand on some spectacular beach in the South Pacific, reminiscing about the lifetime of experiences they’ve shared together, only to find several naked international fashion models walk up and invite him to join them in a hot tub, and he won’t be able to. This death of possibilities is something we all consider when committing to a relationship, but Eat Pray LIVE is on hand to provide and foster meaningful expansion in people’s lives and encourage enough self-confidence to get out of a difficult or stressful situation and take responsibility. IT’S TIME TO LIVE! The future is often brighter with a change of scenery, but taking a year off work is unrealistic, especially in today’s current climate. The Eat Pray LIVE experience gives people a chance to find hope by enjoying a few days of healing activities on the island. With

DAY TWO: A FRIEND IN NEED Once cleansed and on the path to healing, Nicole awaits as your personal concierge to at the fabulous hotel, which offers delicious food, wonderful relaxed accommodation, friendly faces and everything you’d expect from the hospitable island that is Bali. A simple, affordable break away with like-minded people can make a real difference. “There are no uncomfortable beds, forced solitude or therapy groups and tears. There’s just you, us, good times and smiles.” Promises Nicole; who is not claiming to be any thing more than a gentle friend, brimming with positive energy.” Nicole is dedicated making sure you have all you need to feel refreshed and renewed during your stay at Eat Pray LIVE. The retreat is suitable for many people, like those who have experienced emotional upheaval such as a relationship break ups and are seeking to heal and rejuvenate. It also appeals to professionals who need a break from the grind of a stressful job and to people who do not wish to holiday alone and overworked mothers needing a break. The pampering, re-styling and retail therapy service includes an understanding guide to support you during any difficult moments. “The stunning accommodation felt so welcoming and the people are so lovely” said Katrina. “Just one week was enough time for a deep, positive shift to take place and boost my confidence about any future relationships”. DAY THREE: THE ART OF LIVING! Eat Pray LIVE ensures its clients are not just tourists but can feel free to mingle with the cool, friendly cosmopolitan scene that is distinctive to Bali, filled with dining venues that offer varied types of cuisine, from traditional Balinese tastes to Mediterranean, Oriental and Slavic, as well as burger joints and steakhouses. The retreat also offers quiet nights in with scrumptious healthy food cooked and served specially by a private chef. It’s the clients choice and Nicole’s job is to keep their taste buds alive. Choosing from a long menu of natural therapies to bring about mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical benefits would appeal to most people on vacation. Allowing a clairvoyant to possibly have a glimpse into your future is fun too and we all benefit from the practice of yoga. So why not be seduced by the tranquility of Bali? There’s never a dull moment on an Eat Pray LIVE night out. For most of her life, Nicole Long has been driven by a deep desire to make people feel good about them selves - no matter where they are in life. Guests at Eat Pray LIVE certainly form great new friendships, which in turn provide essential, ongoing support once they return home and back to every-day life. “Whatever you are leaving behind, Eat Pray LIVE will help you refocus, relax and feel rejuvenated with a renewed approach to life - you set the pace to suit your needs.” says Nicole.

DAY ONE: HEALING CEREMONY Although Ketut is not on the Eat Pray LIVE menu, Nicole has researched some non-commercial healers to set the scene for her small, intimate groups of up to five clients. The concept of healers (known as Balians in Balinese) is a broad one, with practitioners ranging from traditional healers of mental or physical illnesses, to bone setters, massage-therapists, mediums, and clairvoyants. It’s impossible these days to think about Ubud, Bali’s cultural heart, without also considering the enormous success of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love. While you’ll find no shortage of local travel companies promoting the success of the novel, there’s more to Ubud than rice paddies and monkeys. On day one of the retreat Katrina and the client’s travel to a temple outside of town where a Balinese Mangku conducts the group spiritual, cleansing ceremony. When you consider a Balinese woman spends onethird of her waking hours in ceremony either preparing, participating, or cleaning up, this experience is bound to have a positive and powerful effect on the client’s from overseas. In a world where devotion is often forgotten, busy people can once again contemplate life, showing gratitude for loved ones and reciting their own personal wish list. “I had an amazing time in Bali at the healing ceremony, and walked away after just one morning with a deep sense of calm and insight into these lovely people and their Balinese culture” recalls Katrina. “Various offerings were placed at the location where we kneeled together and the ceremony commenced with incense to purify and cleanse the body, and continued with offerings such as the sprinkling of blessed water to purify the body, rice placed on the forehead for good fortune and prosperity, prayer and, the waving of hands in memory of your ancestors”.

But unless you have the luxury of endless time, a trip to Bali may only include a few days. Make sure you relax on a pile of colourful cushions at the beach, while sipping a cocktail watching the sun go down and reflect upon the magical four days you’ve just enjoyed. Savour each moment, before you jump in a blue taxi back to the airport and return home to begin the next amazing chapter of your life.

About Money Trees and Money Plants

‘My neighbor trimmed his large jade plant, and gave me some of the cuttings. I was wondering about the best way to plant them. I have heard a couple different versions and would like to make sure I do it right before I do anything else. Can I keep it indoors? Is it good luck to have jade plants in the house? I have a small lawn behind my house and I am planning to have jade plants there too. Why is it valued and where can it be placed? Thanks in advance for any ideas… Andrew.’ The Jade Plant, Crassula argentea also sometimes known as the money tree, or lucky tree is a succulent that does well with minimal care. The leaves are oval-shaped, and resemble coins. These leaves are easily used to propagate the plant by simply dropping them onto the soil. Leaves that are knocked off a parent plant are lucky if they land on soil because they can grow up on their own. They can also be propagated by taking a stem cutting, remove the leaves up the stem and plant the majority of the stem below the soil (see pictures). Keep it watered well for a week or two, and a new plant should grow. Because of the simple way it propagates, a jade plant is easy to share. Simply placing a leaf on moist soil will start a new jade plant (see pictures). This makes it easy to share and as such is a symbol of sharing and friendship. They are a perfect present for a friend, just as you received your cuttings from a neighbor! Plants make a perfect housewarming gift and are ideal for a new business or marriage. The jade plant or money tree is actually symbolic of the actual jade stone. Jade is considered highly valuable, and therefore a symbol of luck, great wealth, and status. In feng-shui, jade plants symbolise money and gold. If plants are placed near the entrance, or front door they are said to welcome good fortune and prosperity, whereas they promote wealth if placed in the south-east corner of a business or home. The Jade Plant, often known as the money tree will often be seen at the entrance to a Chinese restaurant or store. They can be seen placed near a cash register in Chinese tradition as a way to attract prosperity. During Chinese New Year, jade plants are decorated with money envelopes, coins and red ribbons to attract good luck and prosperity for the coming year. Jade plants or money trees, can be grown indoors in pots or outside in the garden. They will tend to get dusty, if inside the home so regularly spray them with water. They look particularly attractive in a yard if several plants of different heights are grouped together. Plants that get plenty of sunshine develop reddish tinge to the leaf margins, which makes them look more attractive. If kept inside make sure they are near a bright window or in the bathroom. Only water the plants when the soil has become completely dry, the most common cause of death is from overwatering. From the money tree now we move onto the money plant, Epipremnum aureum, also known as the Pothos, is another attractive plant with distinctive heart shaped foliage that is also used as a prosperity plant in feng-shui. It is also native to

Indonesia and one of the easiest plants to grow anywhere. It requires little care and is very tolerant. Diffused or filtered sunlight is best for leaf coloration and growth. For this plant morning sun is ideal, avoid hot midday or afternoon sun. It can take very well in a bathroom or any other indoor area, and they are definitely a superb idea for a wall, arbor, or vertical garden, inside or outside. It is easy to propagate by stem cuttings that will root easily in soil or water. Another quick and easy method of propagation is layering which the plant does naturally whenever its stems touch the soil, especially if grown as a groundcover. Wait until the node grows over a new pot(see picture). Then wait for it to produce roots. You may have to pour some soil over some of the stem. Once the node produces roots due to the layering, trim off from the main stem. It is a very similar process to growing strawberries from runners. The money plant or Pothos has attractive heart-shaped and multi-coloured foliage. For this reason it is used in homes, offices, shopping malls and public spaces, as well as in cut floral arrangement. It’s tolerance to filtered light, makes this an excellent house plant in vases or pots, especially in the kitchen or bathroom. The only real worry is overwatering as it will easily kill them. Outdoors, it is suitable as a groundcover in garden beds or grown in containers raised for a cascading effect. It will also add a jungle feel to the backyard if grown up the walls, along the fence, or up the trunks of other trees. It could also be allowed to cascade down the wall. But please beware that all parts of this plant are poisonous, if large quantities are eaten.

They say that both of these plants bring great luck, prosperity, wealth, and fresh purified air too! According to a well documented study undertaken by NASA on the use of common indoor plants for indoor air purification, Pothos or money plant is one of the top three plants effective in removing formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide vapors from inside the home. The Jade plant or money tree was also in the top twenty for plants that purify the air. These feng shui plants filter the air and increase oxygen, bringing positive energies to your home and garden. Post Script While we all know that money doesn’t grow on trees, (the whole idea is ridiculous), I would still suggest that you put either of these plants near your front door just to be on the safe side!

ECO WEEK @ LITTLE TREE Got the urge to splurge on your villa? Then you’ll want to shimmy on down Sunset to Little Tree Bali: the builders’ and renovators’ ecological ecstasy. Little Tree’s branches spread far beyond the commercial into the philanthropic with a week of exhibitions, presentations and workshops in ecological sustainable solutions, running from the 16th to the 22nd April. You could pop down and eat at the Little Green Cafe and then learn all about greener options for central cooling, wastewater, decorative lighting, solar desalination…you get the idea. Dinner and a show! All events are free and run from 10 - 5 each day. Do you know someone who should be presenting their special knowledge or inspirations? Do you want to do a presentation or share your event, products or projects? This is your forum! Sign on up by contacting :

A WORD FROM Bali Cantik Tanpa Plastik Campaign and Anna Sutanto What a difference a day makes…Nyepi. The holiday to celebrate Balinese New Year. A day of total silence to purify the island. No activity, no traffic, no shopping, and that means less plastic waste. Bali produces about 1650 tons of plastic waste each day! That’s 366 truck loads, most of which is burnt or ends up in illegal dumping sites, river and oceans. Worldwide, over 26 000 tons of plastic waste enters the ocean every day. Imagine if it was Nyepi for one day across the world… ▪ Indonesia could reduce the 30,000 tons of plastic waste created each day ▪ America could reduce the 85,000 tons of plastic waste created each day ▪ America could cut out 270 million plastic bags from the 100 billion used each year ▪ UK could cut out 15m plastic bags from the 5.7 billion used each year ▪ Australia could cut out 10,000,00 plastic bags from the 360 million used each year ▪ Northern Ireland could cut out 45 000 plastic bags from the 16 million used each year

C/Ho/I-29 June 11

BUZZ By Monsoon Wanita ▪ Worldwide, over 2 billion plastic bags could be cut from the waste stream everyday Plastic bags are the #1 consumer item in the world. They are used for an average of 5 minutes (not even a day!) but can pollute the environment for over 1000 years. You can make it Nyepi every day and help make Bali plastic-free. A great start to bring your own bag when shopping. Imagine if we all refused plastic across the world, every day…

HOLES OF HAPPINESS Dear old London town can be discouragingly grey even on a sparkly day. Mostly concrete and stone, where the only branches you might see are those of a bank, and the colourful abandon and disorder of nature might be best seen at Madame Jo Jo’s “strip club” in Soho. But someone is depositing little pockets of earthly delights round abouts in the form of POT HOLE GARDENS. The Pot Hole Gardener is filling potholes around London with fanciful patches of grass and daffodils, a rose bush or some daisies, sometimes adding an ornament or two. Truly an aesthetic intervention… it is guerilla gardening’s mini me. Check out this little documentary “Holes of Happiness” on youtube. *Guerilla Gardeners, normally come out at night with picks, shovels, soil and most importantly plants. They like to congregate about other people’s property which has been asethically neglected and transform it into a floral frenzy. So imagine what you could do with an excess of potholes and amazing growing conditions. Bali really is a paradise if you are a guerilla gardener.

Global Goings On........



KARTINI DAY - April 21, 2012 Raden Ajeng Kartini was considered a pioneering feminist in her short lifetime and her legacy still endures as is acknowledged by the national celebration of her birthday on April 21. She was born in 1879, the fifth of eleven children to an aristocratic family in Java and was granted some privilege at the time in being educated until the age of 12. She became fluent in Dutch at a time when Java was still a part of the Dutch East Indies and native Indonesian women were heavily constrained in terms of development so this skill was a significant advantage. It paved the way for further self education during her time of ‘seclusion’ in preparation for her inevitable arranged marriage and she absorbed all she could by tapping into the European concepts of women’s emancipation and other such social issues, through her correspondence with Dutch pen pals and books.

VILLA PANTAI BIRU, JL PETITENGET, SEMINYAK Phone: 4732093 or 081558190000 NC/Ho/P-04 April 12

Despite the fact that Kartini was given into a polygamous marriage (prolific in Javanese tradition at the time), she managed to found a school for women among other initiatives that inspired others to take up the mantel and continue this trend. She passed away at the very young age of 25 after the birth of her only child in 1904 but her gentle yet persistent approach has left its mark in history. Several years after her death, her letters were compiled and disseminated as a book Habis Gelap, Terbitlah Terang or Out of Dark, Comes Light and in 1964, President Sukamo declared her birthday ‘Kartini Day’, a national occasion to recognise her significant contribution to the women’s emancipation cause in Indonesia and to raise awareness of surrounding social issues. NC/Ho/U-04 April. 12

It can be observed that women’s rights and development have come a long way from the time of R.A. Kartini. In Bali, we see girls and women being educated seemingly as liberally as we do boys and men and many successful Balinese and Indonesian women hold positions of status in their careers. Perhaps the most prominent signifier of the acceptance of women’s’ abilities and intelligence can be seen in the election of Megawati Sukarnoputri as the president of Indonesia 2001 - 2004, arguably the most powerful position in the country! Contrastingly, it is often asserted by reports of the media, relevant native and international academics and official bodies that Indonesia still falls far short of an acceptable level of liberties and development for women. According to a report released in 2009 Indonesia had fallen ten places to be ranked 90th out of 156 countries based on the United Nations Development Program’s Gender Development Index. It is easy to accept this assertion as particularly true in lower socio-economic areas where education is sparse and traditional patriarchal perceptions endure. Surely, in my time in Bali I often hear of the disappointment in bearing only daughters over sons, that boys are revered over girls in terms of social status and cultural ends. Typically, in Bali it’s all discussed and acknowledged with a smile on the faces and in the voices of those who are affected but nevertheless indicates that there remains a mountain to climb in terms of reaching encompassing gender equality. So Kartini Day is an occasion when the national song ‘Ibu Kita Kartini’ can be heard broadcast all over the nation, television is dominated by feminist discussion and women and school children will don traditional attire to participate in any number of activities designed to raise awareness and work toward the goal of empowering and valuing the native female populace whilst commemorating what Kartini herself and other prominent feminists have, and continue, to achieve on behalf of all Indonesian women.

ANZAC DAY - April 25, 2012 In 1914, a short time after Australia officially became a federation but when many of the population still felt strongly akin to it’s mother country England, the fledgling nation was promised as an ally to Great Britain in the war declared against Germany, likewise New Zealand. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, a faction that served to mark the two countries first major military action in what went down in history as the First World War. The men who served in these forces became known as ANZACS and in 1915 were dispatched, on the now famously ill-fated expedition, to storm the Gallipoli peninsula of the Ottoman Empire with an end goal to overthrow Constantinople, now known as Turkey and it’s capital of Istanbul respectively.

On this day…. World Health Day - April 7, 2012 On this day in 1948, the World Health Organisation, a body that is depended upon for up to date lines of thought regarding all manner of health related issues, was officially founded. It is now an official ‘day’ celebrated annually to acknowledge the significant contribution it makes to the general well being of the global population and raise awareness for the thematic focus, which this year is ‘ageing and health’.

Songkran (Thai New Year) - April 13 - 15, 2012 The Songkran festival in Thailand is observed each year on these fixed dates and all over the country celebrations will take place. Water is the common theme in rituals from washing Buddha statues to water fights on the streets; the metaphor is cleansing which seems to be a common theme when starting a fresh year no matter what culture you associate with!

The history surrounding this superstition is too vast to explore in these few words, let’s just acknowledge that many historical calamities have occurred on Fridays from stock market crashes to crucifixions. This coupled with the traditionally unlucky number of 13 has resulted in the widespread ‘fear’ of Friday the 13th. Being fearful of these phenomena is called “friggatriskaidekaphobia”; if this is you then hold your hat because 2012 has a few, including one in April.

Easter April 6 – 9, 2012 The Easter holiday is traditionally and religiously the time for Christianity to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ but in more recent times has become strongly associated with the Easter bunny bringing chocolate eggs. It is a public holiday in most parts of the western world and in Bali, traditional masses will be held at the several churches on the island and many venues will put on Easter egg hunts, face painting and other activities for families to enjoy throughout the weekend. Good Friday, Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.

What eventuated was a gruesome stalemate between conflicting sides spanning the rest of that year, with tens of thousands of casualties on all fronts. The Turks were ultimately victorious and the allied forces retreated with many of the remaining ANZAC soldiers being evacuated from the carnage in a covert rescue campaign toward the end of December in that same year. 8141 Australian and 2431 NZ men were killed in the enduring combat now known as the ‘Battle of Gallipoli’ or the ‘Dardanelles Campaign’ and the stark repercussions of war struck to the heart of all Australians and New Zealanders, but nevertheless saw the young and optimistic spirits of these countries bolster in the glow of their sacrificed sons courage and loyalty. This significant loss of human life on behalf of their homelands is a prominent part of these countries’ young history and as such the ANZAC legacy has come to encompass a far broader meaning than simply acknowledging the loss of life during that tragic battle. The ‘Spirit of the ANZAC’ has become a resounding myth through which it is attempted to make sense of and draw positivity from what can only otherwise be held as the overwhelmingly tragic consequences of war. It evokes a sense of excessively ‘good’ qualities in Australians and Kiwis (as they are fondly known) such as loyalty, mateship, courage and fairness, general traits that characterize these nations as a whole. For some time Anzac Day appeared to have become lost in translation to the imagination of Australia and New Zealand youth and it’s message and what it ‘celebrated’ became a point of controversy, particularly during the Vietnam War era when many Australians opposed the conflict and ensuing conscription. However, the enduring legacy that has risen from these ashes has enjoyed resurgence in recent decades. It’s a national public holiday in both countries and many thousands of respective populations attend official services and ceremonies. Certainly, to travel and attend a ‘dawn service’ at Anzac Cove (as it is now known) in Gallipoli, the exact location where the troops landed on this morning, is seen as a rite of passage for many young patriots coming up the ranks. ANZAC Day, on the 25th April, is arguably the proudest national, annual occasion across both nations. It marks the anniversary of the landing of those troops on Turkish shores, but reaches out to honour each and every military casualty of war and raise the profile of men and women throughout Australian and New Zealand history who have demonstrated almighty courage and bravery in defending their beloved homelands and kindle the desire of young countrymen and women to strive to embody those qualities of the ANZAC. For those Aussies and Kiwis traveling or living in Bali for ANZAC Day 2012, several pubs celebrate the occasion with traditional two up and screening of the infamous ANZAC Day clash of AFL. For those who are keen, it may be worth contacting the Australian Consulate to enquire about a possible dawn service.

“Selection, Care and Maintenance of Your Home Security System.” I let my dog out the other week. He didn’t come back. He was a good dog although I have to say he had never been the healthiest dog in the world. He came a from a bad home. No I don’t mean that his father used to come home drunk and beat him or anything like that, he came from a farm and it seems that many of the animals in the farm were unhealthy. Jasper always had bad skin from his early life but then, as a puppy, he got distemper. I don’t know how but he must have had contact with another dog before he had time to get his full course of vaccinations. He was very ill for many months but to the total surprise of his hard working vet he was one of the few dogs that actually survived what is usually a fatal disease. Sadly he was never the same after that, distemper attacks the nervous system and eventually the brain and poor old Jasper’s temperament changed and he became nervous. In addition, in spite of eating plenty, he always looked like a bag of skin and bones. Even so, three quarters Labrador and a quarter Retriever, he was a good looking dog. Time passed, as is its wont, but then one day we found Jasper started to become even more nervous of people he didn’t know. We suspected something was wrong and sure enough the married pembantu we had at the time was eventually caught in compromising situations playing hide the sausage with a dodgy pool cleaner and she left and mysteriously Jasper was a lot happier after that. He was being abused without us realising. Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn’t it and I have to say it is a lot easier to have a local dog, they are far more resilient to the diseases on the street, they are not valuable enough to get stolen and you can let them out on the street with all the other dogs without concern. Should you let your dog out? As long as it is safe with children and has a collar on why not. One of the security duties of your dog is to protect your neighbourhood from rabies by guarding his territory and keeping rabid dogs away. I live at the bottom of a dead end street overlooking rice fields and I had taken to letting Jasper out in the evening for a run around. He’d run around for 20 minutes and then he’d be back. That night he didn’t return. Where did he go? Could it be that angels from doggy heaven slipped down a moon beam and carried our canine away to dwell in peace and tranquility until the end of eternity in some golden doggie realm? I suspect not. Perhaps it was some generous benefactor who wishes to adopt lonely pooches and give them a wonderful home where they will be massaged and given cream baths every day? Nice idea but there again Jasper was not one for such niceties, he loved water but hated to be clean. Get him in the bathroom, a good scrub and as soon as he gained freedom from bathroom purgatory it was a dash into the garden to find some nice smelly muck to wallow in. It was like trying to keep lipstick on a hippopotamus. He might have fallen in the river. I searched downstream – nothing. Perhaps someone saw him and thought they could get some money for him. A searched the bird market in Denpasar, many dogs change hands there but it was to no avail. After days of searching and asking around I finally I went to see the vet. I should have done it sooner. A knowledgable person in the local doggie scene. She speaks fluent dog and hears everything that’s going on in the street. She told me that the particular night Jasper vanished a number of dogs had been poisoned in the area, she knew of seven cases. In one case a well meaning person had tried to give some poor suffering Fido mouth to mouth resuscitation (not a good idea) only to get sick herself and end up in hospital. People who have been in Bali for any length of time usually know of someone who has had their dog poisoned. A good friend of mine had a lovely dog, a dalmation. He was out one day in the countryside when suddenly the dog started convulsing and foaming at the mouth. Within half an hour it was dead. It had picked up a bait that must have been lying next to the path. By the reaction of the dog it was probably strychnine, the poison of choice for people who wish to kill dogs. Strychnine is readily available here, it is pretty nasty stuff so perhaps we need to know about it. It is a neurotoxin which attacks the nervous system. It produces some of the most dramatic and painful symptoms of any known toxic reaction. It comes from the seeds of Stryx Nux Vomita, a 12 metre high tree native to Indonesia. Strychnine enters the body by inhalation, swallowing or absorption through eyes or mouth. It acts very quickly. Within 5 minutes 50% of the ingested dose can be absorbed into the body. Symptoms onset in 15 minutes to an hour. Symptoms include severe nausea, very painful convulsions of all the muscles in the body which progressively increase in rapidity, severity and length, frothing at the mouth, arching of the body, bulging eyeballs. The victim is concious with a clear mind until death which follows from asphyxia due to convulsions in the respiratory muscles after 1 to 2 hours. There is no antidote and treatment is by either absorbing it in the stomach with something like active carbon or washing it out. Strychnine poisoning is a horrible way to die as I once witnessed. It was late, probably 1 o’clock in the morning, I was with friends having a nightcap at a local watering hole when we suddenly became aware of a healthy looking local dog on the street in front of us that suddenly went into a horrendous series of spasms, it

foamed at the mouth and died in agony. We realised that a passing motorcycle had dropped bait for the dog so we waited to see what would happen next. Half an hour later a car came down the street, it stopped and before we knew it the dog was in the boot of the car and they were gone. Who “they” were we never found out. No one seems to know and certainly my vet has no idea who is behind it or why, all we know is that every 6 months or so dogs throughout the area just vanish in the night. It has been this way for years, certainly since long before the rabies outbreak. Perhaps someone has pet crocodiles or leopards and can’t keep up with their voracious appetites or perhaps authorities want to cull the number of dogs and purposely do it in the dead of night so as not to upset people. Perhaps they are taken to Manado, there they have warungs with the letters RW outside. RW stands for Rintek Wuuk which means bulu halus or smooth fur, it comes from Minihasa cuisine and on the menu you might find roasted retriever, boiled boxer, poached poodle or even spaniel satay - yum yum.

Just a minute, if a dog has been poisoned, can you eat it? They say if the carcass is cooked this will neutralise the strychnine and make it safe to eat, I’m not sure I would take the risk. But I think that really it’s the “Gobbins”. They’re mischievous blighters you know. They come out in the dead of night to take one of a pair of socks, hide the towels while you are in the shower, take your last bottle of cold beer from the fridge, squeeze the toothpaste tube at the wrong end and leave the toilet seat up. It must just have been that by shear fluke the 15 minutes old jasper was out that night must have been the time the “Gobbins “ were about. You may be wondering why I am writing about my dog in Fixed Abode. The answer is simple, he was my very effective home security system. To be honest I was never really a doggie sort of person and used to get frustrated by dog lovers who think everyone loves their dog as much as they do and let some motley mongrel jump all over you slobbering, snorting and licking. Sharing bodily fluids with a boxer is not exactly my idea of fun. The major security threat here in Bali is from passing opportunists who climb over the wall to see what they can get (particularly organised laptop thieves or people who want some money to go home to their village). Such opportunists may be quite dangerous if they get into your house and end up cornered. A dog in the yard, particularly one with a deep bark is a powerful deterrent against such opportunists who will go searching for easier pickings. The effect of the dog can be greatly enhanced if you install motion sensor security lighting. Jasper served a very useful purpose and, over time, he grew on me and I learned a lot from him over the years. Of course we all have our own experiences but these are the benefits of my hindsight on how to select, care for and maintain the best home security system you can get. 1. The best security system for your house is a dog, particularly one with a deep bark. 2. Select a hardy breed that is suitable for life in Bali. 3. Avoid dangerous dogs particularly Pit Bull Terriers and Rottweilers. 4. Don’t have a large dog if you don’t have a large yard. 5. Don’t get an active dog if you can’t give it a lot of exercise. 6. Local dogs are far easier than imported breeds, they are more resilient and you can let them out on the street. 7. Look for a healthy dog, ask about its background, check its temperament. 8. Keep your dog isolated from other dogs until it has had all its injections. 9. Make sure your garden is dog proof so he can’t get out and your valuable plants are protected. 10. Modify the access to your house to suit the dog. I found a secondary gate was very useful to keep the dog secure while I got the car and the shopping in and out. 11. Get your dog neutered if you don’t want a constant supply of pups or if you want to stop that male dog of yours being too excitable or disappearing for days on end. 12. Keep a watch on your dog and don’t let him pick up things in the street (yes I know very difficult). 13. Keep your dog in the garden at night. 14. Dog refuges such as BAWA always have dogs looking for good homes. 15. Dry food is very handy (though expensive) and it is good to supplement this with fresh food, Jasper liked chicken heads or blocks of liver or kidneys from Lotte Mart. 16. If you lose your dog go and check the bird market in Denpasar, someone may try and sell him there. Go and tell your vet, they may have helpful information. 17. If your dogs starts to behave differently take note of how other people treat your dog particularly people around your home. 18. Remember your dog has a job to do. You want that hound on duty and barking when you need it too. Build trust, discipline and respect with your dog so it will be enthusiastic to follow your instructions. Do that and you will have a faithful companion. And finally don’t go kissing your dog if he has been eating strychnine. Phil Wilson Opinions expressed are those of Phil Wilson.

Local News Five Terrorists Shot Dead in Bali - Seminyak Bar was Planned Target A bar on the tourist strip of Seminyak in Bali that is popular with Australians was one of the targets of a terror cell that has been destroyed by Indonesian police. Crack officers from Detachment 88 killed five suspected terrorists and foiled a plot to attack tourists in Bali during Balinese Nyepi New Year celebrations this week. More than 5000 Australians are currently holidaying in Bali and one of the targets named by Indonesian authorities was a late night bar called La Vida Loca that is frequented late at night by young Australians. According to tourist websites the crowds don’t get to the bar until after 2am when it “packs them in for vodka drinks, with a great live band nightly, playing mostly Latino grooves”. “Bring your sunglasses as well as your salsa moves as most La Vida Loca’s party till sunrise,’’ it says. Police sources said attacks were planned for Thursday (22/3) night, which is the eve of the annual Nyepi or day of silence to mark the Balinese Hindu New Year. One of the five suspected terrorists was on a police wanted list for the past two years and took part in a terrorism-linked robbery last year. The 32-year-old, known as Hn, had also taken part in the armed robbery of a bank in Medan, Sumatra. He was one of three men gunned down in Denpasar during a battle with the anti-terrorist unit Detachment 88. Heavily armed officers from the anti-terrorist unit Detachment 88 stormed two addresses in Denpasar and Sanur on Sunday night, (18/3) killing five men.

Witnesses said gunshots could be heard for several minutes as officers raided the Lhaksmi Hotel in the Sanur area about 9pm local time. Police confirmed the raids were linked, adding that those killed had either resisted arrest or tried to escape. “On Danau Poso three people were killed from police fire and on Gunung Soputan two were shot dead,” Bali Police spokesman Hariadi said. “They are linked to terrorism.” A number of firearms and ammunition were recovered from both addresses but Hariadi refused to confirm if any explosives were discovered at either of the locations. Hariadi added that it was believed the group had been planning robberies, to be used to fund terror attacks, but did not provide further details. However, another senior police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was possible the group was planning to carry out attacks on Thursday. The Balinese traditionally hold large parades on the eve of Nyepi, which also draw large numbers of tourists. The latest development is a stark reminder of the lingering threat of terrorism in Indonesia and comes ahead of the 10th anniversary later this year of the 2002 Bali bombings, which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians It was reported that a police source said that a high-profile terrorism suspect was among the groups raided overnight but would not confirm whether he was one of the five people killed. It’s understood police were also investigating whether members of the groups raided on Sunday were linked to a

terrorist network discovered training at a paramilitary camp in Aceh in 2010. The Aceh camp was set up by Abu Bakar Bashir, the former spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiyah and the group blamed for the 2002 bombings in Bali. While Bashir is serving 15 years in relation to his involvement in the Aceh network, a number of members are known to be still at large. Australian National University terrorism expert Clive Williams said the planned attacks were a significant development in JAT’s strategy. “Until now they’ve tended to target local Christians. They have not been known to target tourists before,” he said. Foreign Affairs officials had already warned tourists to delay travel to Indonesia because of a “very high threat of terrorist attack”. “We continue to receive information which indicates that terrorists may be planning attacks in Indonesia, which could take place at any time,” officials warned. Bali bombing survivor Dale Atkin said tourists should stay away from Bali. “I don’t think the Indonesians can control Bashir. It’ll be hard on their economy, but I reckon people should stay away,” Mr. Atkin said. “It would be horrible if Australia had to go through another Bali bombing.” A spokesman for Jetstar said seats were available if tourists wish to leave. Up to 25,000 Australians visit the island at any one time and are regarded by authorities as vulnerable to attack because they dress scantily and party hard. (March 20th 2012)

Analysis: Bali Attack Plot Shows Indonesia Terror Threat Evolving A foiled plot by suspected Islamic militants to attack and bomb targets in Bali, including a bar popular with tourists, marks an escalation of the violent threat in Indonesia as authorities race to stay ahead of rapidly evolving armed groups. Five men were shot dead in police raids on Sunday on the island where nightclub bombings in 2002 killed 202 people mostly foreign tourists - and forced the world’s largest Muslim country to confront violent Islamist groups on its soil. Pictures of a villa where some of the men were shot dead, showing pools of blood on the floor of a garden hut, starkly illustrated the return of violence to the mostly Hindu island where militants last launched deadly bomb attacks in 2005. Ansyaad Mbai, head of Indonesia’s National Counter Terrorism Agency, said the men had plans to bomb targets on the island, including the beach-front “La Vida Loca” bar. Police initially said the suspects were planning armed raids on moneychangers, jewelers and the bar, partly to raise money for future attacks. “This group was planning not only armed attacks against those targets but also bombings,” Mbai said. “At this stage we could not be sure of the scale but high or low, bombs are dangerous, especially in Bali. The impact would be huge,” he added. Attacks in recent years have mostly been small-scale, but the latest plot suggests terror groups may be trying to raise their profile at a time when Indonesia’s economy is booming and it aims to play a bigger role on the world stage. Bali held a high-profile regional summit last November attended by U.S. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among other leaders, and is scheduled to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit next year. Latent Threat Indonesia has scored notable successes in its battle against Islamic militancy since the 2002 bombing, arresting about 600 suspects and heavily disrupting the activities of the Jemaah Islamiah (JI) group and its offshoots that police said had carried out the attacks.

But there has been a steady stream of violence as militants have reacted to the crackdown by splitting into smaller groups and targeted security forces and government officials. Police officers were attacked last year in a mosque suicide bombing, drive-by shootings and by an attempt to poison drinking water - low-cost operations that require relatively little expertise and allow for easier recruitment. “It just shows there is a latent threat in the background and it’s consistent,” said Kevin O’Rourke, a political risk analyst based in Jakarta. “The good thing is that the authorities have a pretty good track record, especially over the last two years in anticipating and preventing attacks.” There have been no large-scale attacks on Western targets in Indonesia since 2009 when suicide bombers blew themselves up in two Jakarta hotels, killing nine people and wounding 53. Prosecutors scored a major success last year when JI’s spiritual leader, Abu Bakar Bashir, was jailed for 15 years, following years of efforts to obtain a long sentence for the 73-year-old preacher seen as inciting hatred in his speeches. Improved investigation and surveillance techniques by the “Detachment 88” police anti-terrorism squad, funded by the United States and Australia, have been credited for breaking up several plots - including the latest one in Bali. Initial findings by investigators in Bali appear to highlight the fluid and unpredictable nature of militant groups in Indonesia, which has become an emerging-market darling of investors in recent years. Police said that the men, aged between 27 and 32, were linked to an armed robbery group in northern Sumatra island and the so-called Solo group, which police say was behind a suicide bombing at a church last year and other attacks in central Java. Mbai said no explosives had yet been found but that there was evidence the group had surveyed their targets, taken photographs and “analyzed the impact”. An unknown number of suspects had escaped, officials said.

Andi Widjajanto, a defense analyst from the University of Indonesia, said the group appeared to be a “dormant cell” related to JI’s top bomb-maker, Dulmatin, who was killed by police in 2010. Mbai said that some of the suspects were involved in gangs with links to narcotics distribution, adding to evidence that terror groups are increasingly funding themselves through criminal activities such as robberies. “Indonesia’s government has been very successful preventing terror attacks. The special anti-terror detachment has built a much better capacity in recent years, but it has been failing to completely stop or erase new cells,” Widjajanto said. He said the authorities were still falling short in efforts to disengage militants from terror groups and to plug the flow of smuggled weapons through the country’s vast, porous borders. As the JI group has been broken up, suspicion of involvement in attacks has fallen on the Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT) group, which was established by jailed cleric Bashir in 2008 with the stated aim of creating an Islamic state through peaceful means. Police have accused several JAT members of involvement in attacks. Last month, the United States designated the group a foreign terrorist organization, raising pressure on Indonesia’s government to take a tougher line on the 1,500-strong preaching organization. “It says it is peaceful but it is the most violent terrorist group in Southeast Asia,” said Rohan Gunaratna, head of terrorism research at Singapore’s S Rajaratnam School of International Studies. “It is a terrorist organization that at times masquerades as a political and religious organization.” Son Hadi, JAT’s spokesman, denied the legal group was related to terrorism, saying the accusations were a ploy led by the West to undermine the Islamic group.

Storms Cause Death and Destruction on Bali Two people were killed in stormy Bali on Saturday (17/3) night, bringing the death toll to 11 from several districts hit by ongoing heavy rainfall and landslides. The two victims were identified as I Ketut Nada and I Ketut Sumarna from Sukawati, Gianyar district. District police spokesman Ketut Alit Sudarsana said the two were struck by a collapsing building after performing their prayers in a temple on the site at 11 p.m. The storms also caused dozens of trees to fall and knock out electricity in Denpasar and Badung. The storms also killed two people on Thursday. Ni Wayan Sidemen died after a tree fell on her in Karangasem district and Ni Wayan Puri died in Gianyar when her house collapsed. Two people who went missing in landslides and flash floods that hit Bangli district on Tuesday night were still not found as of Sunday. Ketut Tapa and Nyoman Gunawan were two of seven people swept by the flooding. Bangli district military commander Djoni Prasetio said the joint search and rescue team were using tracker dogs and had extended their search area to beyond Belandingan and Pinggan, the two villages hit by the flash floods, but had so far turned up nothing. The losses incurred from natural disasters over the past week reached Rp 1.9 billion ($209,000). Bali Public Relations and Protocol Bureau head Ketut Teneng said the agency had prepared a Rp 29.4 billion disaster mitigation budget. “We have ordered districts to calculate the losses so that we can start rehabilitation efforts immediately,” he said. (March 19th 2012) Indonesia to Slash Aussie Cattle Quota Indonesia is pushing ahead with plans to cut cattle imports from Australia, revealing a quota for this year that is far worse for exporters than first feared in the wake of the Gillard government’s suspension of the live trade last year. The development comes as Trade Minister Craig Emerson and Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig hold talks with Indonesian ministerial counterparts in Jakarta on market access for Australian exporters. Indonesia flagged a dramatic drop in imports of cattle from Australia last year after the Gillard government’s decision to suspend the live trade after video footage of abuse of animals in Indonesian abattoirs was aired on TV. Before the suspension was implemented by Senator Ludwig in June last year, Australia commonly exported more than 500,000 head of cattle a year, a trade which was bringing in more than $300 million in revenue. However, the latest projection is worse for Australian exporters than previous predictions had suggested. The Indonesian Agriculture Ministry has confirmed it will push ahead with a large cut in imports of live cattle from Australia, revealing a projected quota for the year ahead of just 283,000 head. The Indonesian government maintains that its cut in imports from Australia is also in keeping with its plan to be self sufficient in terms of beef supply by 2014. (March 22nd 2011) Police Claim Billions lost to Phone Credit Thieves Phone credit thieves are making away with billions and billions of rupiah, the police say. “Take Mama Lauren’s product as an example. If you want a soul mate, you send a request by typing reg: Mama to a certain number. From that product service alone, [operators] can reap hundreds of billion rupiah,” National Police chief Comr. Gen. Sutarman said as quoted by on Thursday. Sutarman, speaking at the release of Attorney General’s Office’s 2011 annual report in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, railed against shady operators. “The operators make it easy for customers to register, but make it difficult to unregister,” Sutarman said. “This is not to mention other product services, like ring tones.” The Jakarta Police previously questioned two senior executives of the content provider company Colibri Network about a cell phone credit theft complaint filed by Feri Kuntoro. Colibri Network and MediaPlay offer premium SMS services to Telkomsel customers. According to Feri, he received a text message offering him a prize if he replied. He could not “unregister” from the service after replying, and the messages that he received cost him Rp 450,000 (US$50). So far the police have named three suspects in the case, namely a Telkomsel vice president identified as KP and two senior executives of Colibri Network and Media Play. The suspects were charged with violating the Consumer Protection Law, the Information and Electronic Transactions Law and the Criminal Code. (March 22nd 2012)

Activities at Indonesian Embassy Normal after Bomb Blast in Paris Indonesian Chief Security Minister Djoko Suyanto said activities at the Indonesian embassy in Paris remained normal after a bomb blast near the building on Wednesday (21/3) morning. In a press conference at the presidential office here on Wednesday, Suyanto remarked that the incident did not disrupt the embassy’s activities although several glass windows in the office had broken due to the explosion of a bomb placed on a pathway some 10 to 15 meters away from the embassy building. Suyanto explained that the Indonesian embassy has been cooperating with the French police to uncover the chronology of the events caught by the embassy’s CCTV. “Hopefully, we will immediately receive a report on what actually happened there,” he said. Suyanto could not be sure about whom the bomb was intended to affect. “We cannot talk about it yet since the incident was on the roadside,” he remarked. Marciano Norman, chief of the State Intelligence Agency (BIN), had said he did not believe the bomb was aimed at the Indonesian embassy. Foreign minister Marty Natalegawa, meanwhile, said a similar incident had occurred in 2004. It had claimed no lives, but the results of the investigation provided no conclusive answers. (March 22nd 2012) Richard Branson buys Linda Garland Estate Bali Not content with owning Necker Island in the Caribbean as well as property in Antigua and Barbuda, Richard Branson has snapped up another private island retreat - this time in Bali. The Panchoran Retreat, set among the hills of Nyuh Kuning on the Indonesian island, was previously owned by Irish designer and environmentalist Linda Garland who has been renting it out as a holiday resort. It comes with seven houses, a yoga pavilion, a bamboo bridge over a river, a group of “hideaway huts” and a 26-metre swimming pool which is fed with water from a spring. In an interview with the Financial Times Branson commented: “The most delightful thing about living on an island is that you’re completely in touch with nature. If you need space to think, there’s only the sound of the sea and local wildlife all around and if you want to party, there are no neighbors nearby to complain. (March 25th 2012) Militant Denies Making Bali bombs at Trial An Indonesian militant accused of building the massive Bali car bomb used in the deadly 2002 terrorist attacks on nightclubs insisted Thursday at his trial that another militant, not he, assembled the device. Umar Patek - a leading member of the al-Qaida-linked network Jemaah Islamiyah - told the West Jakarta District Court that he did not have the expertise to build anything as big as the 1,540-pound (700-kilogram) explosive that authorities say was used in the attacks on the two clubs along with other bombs. “I would not know how to assemble such a bomb,” he said, contradicting claims made to interrogators following his arrest last year in Pakistan. He told Indonesian interrogators after his capture and extradition that he spent nearly a week with co-conspirators in a Bali safe house, painstakingly assembling the huge bomb using household items including a rice ladle, a grocer’s scale and plastic bags. Patek faces a maximum penalty of death by firing squad if found guilty of various terrorism-related and criminal charges, including the Bali attacks that left 202 people dead. Most of the victims were foreign tourists to the resort island. Patek told the court Thurdsay that he was present when the bombs used in the twin attacks were made but did not actually help build them. He testified that it was Malaysian bomb maker Azahari bin Husin, killed during a raid by anti-terrorism forces in 2005, who mixed almost all of the chemicals, he insisted Thursday. “He’s the only one who had the scientific knowledge to make a bomb like that,” Patek said, noting that the slain militant had a doctorate degree in physics. Prosecutors have argued that Patek is a skilled bomb-maker. (March 22nd 2012)

Government’s Compensation for 2012 Fuel Hike Plan The government’s plan to raise fuel prices in April has also increased people’s concerns about the rising costs of living. The fuel price hike will affect other sectors as well, such as transport and staple food costs, as gasoline is the main factor that determines the price of consumer goods. Several factions of society have been voicing their protests, including students from the Indonesian Christian University (UKI) who recently held a rally against government’s plan to raise the fuel price. The rally on March 13 ended in a clash between the two sides of the students and the police personnel who were providing security. Several other protests were also staged by other students across the nation including the hijacking of a number of gas stations of the state-owned PT Pertamina. To deal with the situation the government, through the National Development Planning Ministry, proposed a compensation package for poor elementary and high school students. The statement was expressed by The National Development Planning Minister, Armida Alisjahbana at the opening of the 2012 Yogyakarta city development planning meeting (Musrenbang) on March 9. Many Companies in Bali, Nusa Tenggara in Environmental Red Category Twenty four companies in the Bali and Nusa Tenggara regions have been classified in the red category according to the Minister of Environment Balthasar Kambuaya in Denpasar on Thursday (22/3). He noted that the red category companies (18 in Bali, 5 in West Nusa Tenggara and 1 in East Tenggara) have not been following the regulations of the Environment Article. “We will organize an environmental management coaching program for the 18 companies in Bali, in cooperation with the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy,” said Kambuaya. The 18 red category companies in Bali are operating in the hotel and tourism industry. According to Kambuaya, this is ironic as the environment quality index in Bali is the highest in Indonesia at 99.65 points. A fish canning company at Jembrana, in Bali, and a mining company in East Nusa Tenggara have been in the black category since 2010. Companies that do not regulate environmental management and cause environmental damage and pollution are classified in the black category. Kambuaya also pointed out the Ministry of Environment has threatened to revoke the license of the fish canning company in Bali. According to data from the Ministry of Environment, 49 out of the 1,200 companies in Indonesia are in the black category and most of them are in the mining and palm farming industries. The Ministry of Environment will keep evaluating the feasibility of waste and environmental management systems and their impact on the communities near the locations of companies. (March 22nd 2012) Outbreak of Rove Beetles Reaches Singaraja, Bali The outbreak of rove beetle attacks in East Java has reached Bali where several locals in the Bugis village in the North of the Island have fallen victim to it, a health official said. The vicitms were reported to have suffered from skin irritation as a result of the beetle bites, she stated. “We are now doing our best to identify the (nature of the) attack. If any irritation is evident, it indeed looks like (a case of) beetle bites,” she added. The health official appealed to the public to refrain from panicking over the attack by the poisonous insect. She explained that her office would soon be coordinating with the agriculture service in an effort to prevent an escalation in the beetle attacks. In the meantime, the Wild Animals Conservation Forum (FOKSI) in East Java has requested the public to stop hunting geckos following the rove beetle attacks in various parts of the province. Indra Harsaputra, East Java Foksi Program Manager, said in Surabaya on Thursday (March 22) that although the gecko is on the list of protected animals, it is also a predator of rove beetles. Harsaputra said there was no accurate data on the gecko population in Indonesia, but according to the Forest Ecosystem Conservation of the Conservation Section of the Sixth Region in Probolinggo, East Java, the number of geckos caught nationwide currently reaches 50,000 annually.

C/NV/G-04 April 12

All-time favorite toy: Wooden blocks have become very expensive to buy; school-supply companies can charge as much as $1000 to outfit a whole classroom with professionally made unit blocks. Counting the time it takes to drive around gathering materials, making a set of indestructible low tech unit blocks takes considerable time but they will increase your kid’s fine motor skills, give confidence in unstructered activities, and help him absorb basic 21st-century skills in math, science, architecture and languages. Block play will also keep him and his friends away from the brain-numbing TV. Don’t use scrap lumber as it is an invitation to injury. Use kayu kamper (Rp220,000 per 6 cm X 12 cm X 4 m piece; Rp45,000 per 3 cm X 5 cm X 4 m) or kayu keruing (Rp160,000 per 6 cm X 12 cm X 4 m piece; Rp35,000 per 3 cm X 5 cm X 4 m) for your wood stock. Other raw wood sizes: 4 cm X 6 cm X 4 m, 3 cm X 5 cm X 4 m, 2 cm X 3 cm X 3 m. Buy the wood dry (matang) or the blocks will shrink and warp. Choose straight wood with few knots and dings. Use a simple miter box and backsaw to make straight cuts, be able to cut at 45 degree angles and keep the ends even. Make sure that pieces have smooth, splinter-free and perfectly square faces. You’ll need a variety of shapes of small, medium and large size blocks: square columns, circular columns, half moons, roof planks, rectangles, longer rectangles, triangles and curves. Start with three dozen each of the larger building blocks and a several dozen each of other kinds of blocks so that constructions look more realistic. Use sections of dowels for columns. Flat pieces make good roofs and can be used as ramps for toy cars. Make arches for aqueducts, Palladian doors and spanning roads by clamping the block firmly and then carefully cutting out the arch with a coping saw. Don’t just cut big blocks, which are fine for young children, but to make elaborate creations such as buildings with roofs, skyscrapers, parking garages and forts, kids also need little blocks. No piece should be smaller than 7-8 cm long, which could pose a choking hazard. Use a planer to thin the stock, then have your kid help sand edges, corners and surfaces using at first a medium-grit and then fine-grit sandpaper. Don’t plane too much or your blocks will be too short and don’t round too much as it makes blocks unstable. Painting unit blocks is like painting the working end of a shovel; leave them unpainted and don’t varnish or shellac. Free plans for unit blocks: totally-free-woodworking-plans. com. Deposito berjangka (long-term money certificate): Also called a certifikat perpanjangan. HSBC found that 84% of Indonesian middle class bank customers prefer time deposits and savings instead of capital market investments. Minimal deposit is Rp8 million. Interest can be as high as 5,07% for a one year note but if you cash a year’s certificate before it matures, then you receive no interest. That’s why it’s better to take out a one-month certificate because, although the interest is less, you are able to withdraw the money after one month. You also can arrange to have your interest on the note deposited into your bank account (which you can withdraw with an ATM card) or you may choose to deposit all of your interest back into the total worth of the certificate (called “rollover”). But just remember that if you cash a one month note early you’ll have to pay a penalty of 5%. To take out a certificate, you’ll need a photocopy of your passport and KITAS or KITAB visa; Indonesians will need their KK (Kartu Keluarga) and KTP (Kartu Tanda Penduduk). Fashion from trash: The humble, democratic and affordable cloth tote has become smart and fashionable on the streets of Bali and at the same time says no to wasteful plastic singleuse bags which are the most visible form of waste in Bali. The ideal unbleached carryall’s message is that ethics, personal initiative and sustainabillity matter. Even Hardy’s sells green strong fabric shopping bags. Non-profit logoed signed totes from environmental organizations are even more of a status symbol. Multi-use ones mean that you’ll always have one with you. Villa Gaia’s Be Organic Bag can be stuffed into its own compact 4” X 2” pouch that fits in to a pocket or purse and unpacks to an oversize shopping bag with a 20 kg load capacity. Buy two for the price of one (Rp50,000) at Villa Gaia

office (Jl. Sriwedari 5, Br. Tegallantang, Ubud, tel. 0361972-312), at Bali Buddha and the Senang Hati Store. “BRING-YOUROWN-BAG” sold by Eco Bali (Jl. Br. Beluran 3, Kerobokan Kuta Utara, tel. 0361790-7314) is an e a s y - t o - c a r r y, foldable and reusable shopping bag made of 100% cotton canvas. Kafe on Jl. Hanuman in Ubud sells a selection of attractive plastic handbags, tote bags and wallets made from re-utilized, re-manufactured plastic products. PackASak is constructed of durable long-lasting parachute fabric (contact Wayan Arianingsih hp 081 999 066 808, email: Little Tree sells Recycled Plastic Tote Bags made from discarded packaging (call 0361752-133). Finally, if you become a “friend of Manik Organik” (Rp150,000 per year) in Sanur, you’ll receive a cool tote bag as well as a number of other benefits. Buy vegetables in season: Always buy a vegetable in its growing season when they are the cheapest. These times would be the time to buy a vegetable in bulk and put it by, dry it or otherwise preserve it. Brocolli, spinach and bok choy are expensive in the summer (August-September). The cheapest time to buy carrots and tomatoes is March to April. Onions, cabbage, sweet potatoes are available all year. February is the best time to buy tomatoes as there is a glut of them. Fresh fruits like oranges, apples, grapes, pears, salak – and in particular bananas – are most expensive before big religious holidays (hari raya) like Galungan, Kuningan, Purnama, Tumpek Landep, etc. when the cost of certain vegetables and fruits that are in demand for offerings always rise (bananas can cost as much as Rp5000 for three!). Food crater: Bali’s tremendous variety of traditional cooking instruments made by the island’s small industries are an often overlooked source of Balinese ingenuity. A few of the most common types are similarly made all over Indonesia. These simple utilitarian tools have an elegant beauty and are often collected for their decorative value by people from modern industrial nations. A few of the most common tools are: wooden or bamboo spatulas or flat spoons (entong); shallow spoons made from sections of coconut shell with long bamboo handles (irus); deep scoops (senggotan or timba). Large scoops (serok) for dipping fried foods in hot oil are traditionally designed from a species of bamboo, one end split into fine strips and plaited. Now most serok are shallow cones of perforated sheet metal. The tenong steam tray is a less common tool, mostly used by producers and vendors of small snacks which are cooked with steam. The round trays with slotted bottoms can be stacked several Iayers high, the base of one fitting snugly over the lip of the next, then placed on top of a boiling pot of water. The traditional tenong is made from bamboo; it is being replaced by sheet metal tenong of similar design and size. Many of these tools and devices actually work and are for sale in markets all over Bali. Make your own nut butters: Bali Buddha makes its own delicious homemade peanut butter for Rp22,000 per jar (300 grams). Juice Ja also makes its own peanut butter which is only Rp28,000 but in a bigger jar (330 mm volume). Both products are far cheaper than Skippy’s (around Rp38,000 to

Rp42,500, depending upon where you buy it) and have the added attribute of being processed locally. But you can save even more money by buying your own cashews (mente) in the market or supermarket and make your own cashew nut butter. At the Tiara stores, for example, which sells their own in-house brand, a 250 gram packet of raw cashews costs Rp25,775 which yields 250 grams of butter and the only thing you have to provide is the elbow grease. Just add a little sea salt, and some honey as a sweetener. You Tube is full of videos on how to make nut butters with food processors, but all you need is a mortar and pestle. Making butters by hand gives more satisifaction and taste better. Locally produced cashew nut butters at Bali Buddha or imported jars can cost upwards of Rp50,000. Peanuts for peanut butter are even less (Rp16,000 per kilo). Whatever the type of nut, if you’re making a large amount you can take your nuts to the nearest slip (rice mill) for grinding. To make your own tahini, wijen costs only Rp23,000 per kilo in the local markets. Toko of the Month: Two specialized kitchen supplies and culinary wares outlets are quite near to each other, so you can check them both out on the same trip. At Pantry Magic, Ruko Lotus, Blok 6, Jl. Dewi Sri, tel. 0361-762-647, email:,, the focus is on wide variety of high quality cooking tools and equipment which cater the consumer: housewives, serious cooks and professionals. They have a complete line of cook books, foodie magazines, pots and pans, bakeware, and a superior selection of kitchen tools including terrific super sharp graters (Rp200,000-Rp300,000) which carry a limited lifetime guarantee. Also top brand internationally known food processors like Kitchen Aid Artisan model for Rp5.6 million with two year guarantee. Many Pantry Magic labeled products also carry a lifetime guarantee. Pantry Magic also offers maintenance and repair of consumer cooking equipment like Cuisinart, though the item must be sent to Jakarta. This shop is on the street south of Jl. Sunset Road just before big intersection of Jl. Imam Bonjol. A warehouse type store is the giant two-floor, Jl. Sunset Road Barat 189 (tel. 0361-822-2211/822-2255) which supplies equipment for professional hotel and restaurant kitchens but also sells on the upper level a big selection of everyday kitchen tools for the consumer. Best buys are knives (Rp75,000-Rp150,000), stainless steel ladles, spoons, toasters, stainless steel pots and pans (Rp220,000-Rp738,000), professional scale (Rp330,000). With the emphasis on cabinetry, counters, stoves and refrigeration, this outlet is just the ticket for entrepreneurs who are opening a restaurant or bakery.

04 April - 18 April, 2012


As we enter into this fortnight the Full Moon culminates our very extraordinary Aries cycle which began just after the Equinox and marked a time of intense change and self-assessment and analysis. The Full Moon now brings us together in relationship through what we’ve learned on our solo journey of inquiry. Mercury turns direct today and Mars finally moves forward on the 14th after a retrograde period that began in early February. Pluto turns also into its backward motion on the 11th to a meeting with Uranus in their first exact square in June. Mercury re-enters Aries on the 17th. Many of us have been shaken out of our complacency during the end of March when both Mars and Chiron were squaring the nodes. Many were thrown onto their new paths with a little chaos and definitely a lot of unpredictability. Being dislodged from the old groove can at times be a little uncomfortable. Mars will trigger the nodes once more at the end of the month and will oppose Chiron also during May. If you are feeling any lack of clarity wait until things settle a little during the Taurus cycle. The pushy Mars energy will continue through this fortnight so better to just get out of harms way for now. Wounds are open and will remain so while we heal the collective psyche of disappointment and lies. The pressure will build from now through until the Uranus/Pluto square at 9 Aries/Capricorn on June 24. “Release the fear of change; change the fear”. FULL MOON 17 Libra 23 April 7, 2012 3:20 a.m. ARIES Birthdays aside, this is a tremendous month of change and growth for you, as long as you can manage to ride the changes with some Grace and forgo the need to be right or create a fight to get your own way. What you do now will determine a great many things in the years to come. If these decisions weigh heavily on you at this time, remember all are going through the same amount of restructuring and are feeling the disorientation. Go gently with yourself and others and be mindful that this is always the beginning so there is no haste in getting to an imagined end or race to win.

LIBRA A beautiful Full Moon in your sign this fortnight brings some clarity to your life. It has been a trying month so far and this respite is welcome. Now you can finally see the forest for the trees and this brings a little peace and calm to your heart. The affairs of the heart run deep for you and when you come into harmony with the significant other then things bode well for you. The perpetual balancing act that has been playing itself out of late is unnerving to say the least. People have been feeling very touchy and claiming their independence. There is no problem with this unless you think so.

TAURUS Venus has just entered Gemini and if you play your cards right there will be a lot of insights shared this month. You will be feeling more flighty within your relationships over the coming months as Venus remains in Gemini until August. It may be time for a little experimentation and a certain degree of flirtation will enter into relating. Communication is the key for relating now and be careful to articulate your words in a way that the other is clear about what you are trying to say. Gemini’s traits include cleverness and fickleness. Use your discernment wisely in all matters of the heart.

SCORPIO Pluto is about to turn retrograde and will give you a good few months of introspection which include the first of the Uranus/Pluto squares. It promises to be a very interesting time for you and one that is fraught with immense changes to your life. As old structures dissolve new ones are quickly implemented. Looking at your chart will determine the nature of these changes. For many it will be relationships and for others their physical body and material possessions for yet another group of you. People are willing to stand up for what they believe in like never before and you will be no exception.

GEMINI Mercury moves direct and Venus

SAGITTARIUS Jupiter continues in its rather

enters your sign. This is a good beginning to any fortnight as far as you are concerned, although Mercury in Pisces tends to lend a few challenges to your daily interchanges. The otherworldly nature of Pisces causes some frustration for you. With Venus bringing Love and beauty into your life you might just turn this romantic Mercury towards poetry writing. Nothing like some sweetness to touch the heart of the one you care for or would like to become involved with. Mars is still creating a little havoc for the early degrees of Gemini and could bring some verbal glitches.

plodding way in Taurus until June when it enters into Gemini. You are heading into a cycle that will see you grow beyond you own imagination. This period of long settling will then show its benefits as life picks up pace once more. Depending on your age you will either be venturing towards study or towards teaching what you know or have already learnt. Getting your feet on the ground has been of paramount importance and now that you can claim this grounding things will move quite rapidly. We have all been placed on our new paths of action and ready to go.

CANCER Full Moon is in Libra and brings some closure to the challenges of this intense cycle. Your nervous system has no doubt been bombarded with some pretty crazy energy this fortnight. You are currently bound up in a T-formation that brings a lot of challenges your way as it includes not only Uranus but also Pluto. Transformation and change are the key words here and depending on your other planetary placements you are feeling the rumbles and the quakes. As highly attuned to the external world as you are, a little retreat may be in order over the coming weeks, to restore the balance.

CAPRICORN A great month of adventure has just ensued and now you are ready to appreciate the beauty and balance it has brought to your life. The Full Moon illuminates this for you. With Saturn continuing to move backwards in Libra and the impending square of Pluto in your sign, you are well advised to indulge in every bit of gratitude you can muster as this will continue to bring you the perfection of every situation regardless of its outcome. The time for building will come later. The process now is one of letting go and developing the new insights and ideas that are coming your way. Stay tuned.

LEO You will be dealing better with the current transits than most. With your fiery nature and need for display the heavens are supporting you and your dramatic nature. There’s a lot to talk about although the rather watery Mercury put a dampener on things. Wait until next fortnight when it reenters Aries and communication will become more dynamic. Getting your point across may only trigger the emotions of others at this time although you may both remain unaware as to why they have run so deep. It’s a good idea to remember that people’s sensitivities are up as well as their wounds.

AQUARIUS Uranus was a key player at the beginning of this cycle, so the Full Moon in Libra is paramount to your integration of its particular flavor of intricacies and unusual events. By the end of the fortnight you will be feeling settled again and have things in some kind of alignment that your mind can comprehend. So for now allow the dust to settle before venturing into anything new. You like many others have embarked on a new course of action and it has come as a surprise. This can be fun once you have allowed the old to gracefully exit your life. No force as this does take time, still.

VIRGO By the end of the fortnight Mars moves forward finally, in your sign. You have been another major player in this month of trying transits. A grand cross in the mutual signs (of which you are one) including the moons nodes and Chiron has you reeling from its impact. A course has been set and it may not be the course of your liking. It’s like the heavens have conspired to put you in a position against your own will. This is not true for at the soul level there is always your input in all the situations of your life. We however forget the very reason we set them up, at least at the personality level.

PISCES Allow the healing to be swift now as the currents of Love run deep in your life. All that no longer serves you will be washed away in it’s cleansing waters. Sometimes there is nothing more to do than allow what is, to be. Rest in the Truth of your beingness this fortnight and all that you perceived of as real and harmful will be revealed in the light of Love. There is no course of action to take even if you were distracted by the thought that there was. Neptune is bringing the Truth to every heart in time and let the spirit of existence bring compassion and empathy to these same hearts.

Letters To Bali Advertiser Airport Mess Dear Editor I have taken flights twice this year 2012, I usually go to the airport by taxi. The problem is that when I have arrived back in Bali, due to the work been done on the airport we have to walk miles to get out to the car park, with a bunch of “airport taxi” drivers already gunning for locals and guests arriving in Bali “TAXI, TAXI”………and they DO NOT do metered fares. I live in Umalas and have been quoted from 150,000 to 100,000 by these drivers, it’s just below 50,000 by meter to Umalas, if you refuse they shrug you off and let you go knowing full well you will be obliged to grab a cab as the exit is very far away and no taxis on the outside. Then there are the unlicensed cars trying to get you to come with them at the same rates no less but will nego a bit. Dodgy guys. Last night I decided to walk out and see if I could get a cab outside. Luckily there was a taxi driver sneaking in to see if he could pick up a fare by pretending to have dropped off someone, he told us that at the moment they, (one of the usual taxi companies that were always at the airport), are not allowed to enter and so are losing their usual income. I think this is an outrage and should be investigated, how can this be possible with the amount of arrivals each hour and no taxi service to our guests. They are been robbed before they even have a chance to enjoy Bali. Thank you, Colleen Post, e-mail, fax or bring in your letters. Please address all to Letters To Bali Advertiser.

Saraswasti Papers teams up with Bali Safari and Marine Park to Start the Poo Paper Factory By Ima Deville

Poo Paper?!? If the first question that comes to your mind is “Does it smell?!”, you are obviously not a connoisseur yet and you would benefit from reading this article to find out all about it. The Bali Safari and Marine Park have added this great initiative to their Going, Going… Green campaign in collaboration with Sarawasti Papers, leaders of recycling paper on the island. The Safari Poo Paper Factory was successfully inaugurated on November 5th 2011 and will recycle tons of elephant dung to make beautifully hand-crafted products. Thinking about it, it is not that surprising as poo has been used for millenia to make all kinds of useful products such as fuel, building materials, insect repellant and more. With the alarming rate of destruction of our forests, recycling paper has become a common, popular and desirable practice. In fact, historically, paper was made from recycled cotton and linen rags before using trees around the mid 19th century. It is possible to use herbivores’ poo to make paper. In the case of elephants, dung is collected, washed several times and boiled before being blended with other recycled and washed paper. The outcome is a white pulp that goes through a screen and is spread on large boards to let it dry in the sun. The result is a natural colour paper with a little fiber, giving it a unique texture and feel. The recently launched Going, Going … Green campaign at Bali Safari and Marine Park is incorporating various initiatives. As well as the Poo Paper Factory, the Bali Safari is implementing several sound eco practices that will make the park one of the top eco friendly tourist activities in Bali. Composting is already happening in their gardens and nothing is going to waste at the Safari. The management is also conscious of the strain on water and they use the water from their elephant and hippo pools in their gardens. They recycle every day about 50 green coconuts for their elephants who love crunching on them and there are no plastic shopping bags at the Safari. As for the facts and projection for the year to come, they will use 1200 tons of dung to make compost and paper. Their slogan touches a sensitive issue at the moment on the island: “A GREEN SAFARI is a… cleaner Bali!” Conservation is also at the heart of their campaign as they are leading a successful conservation program for the endangered Bali Minah (or Bali starling) working with and empowering the local community.

The collaboration between the Bali Safari and Saraswati Papers made a lot of sense as they shared many ideas and objectives. If you do not know Saraswati Papers yet, they make beautiful and attractive paper products using 100% recycled paper collected from schools, offices, hotels and homes around Bali. They use traditional and simple methods of blending, dipping and pressing sheets of paper together by hand and hanging it out to dry outside. No chemicals are used to de-ink the recycled paper and, when it comes to colouring their hand-crafted paper, they only use natural dyes taken from the earth, roots and leaves. As for the unique and distinctive texture, they achieve it by using sustainable plant fibers such as bamboo and flower petals. Kali Sari, the founder of Sarawasti Papers explains that making recycled paper is one of the ways to counter the ever-growing pollution caused by a modernizing Balinese society, making people aware of the possibilities of recycling, at work but even at a household level. If you have accumulated lots of non coated paper, they will come and collect it from you, all you need to do is to give them a call. Saraswati Papers also work in collaboration with Eco Bali who collect recycled goods from homes and companies around Bali ( Kali Sari also explains that there is a whole new artistic level to hand crafted paper. The little irregularities in the fiber of the paper make it unique. Nobody can resist holding, touching and caressing the surface of the various products. A visit to the factory on Jl Batu Belig is truly inspiring. This small company has become a boutique business over the

years and it is proud to only employ women, training them and teaching traditional skills to empower them for a better life. If you arrange a visit to the studio, you will not see a production line but instead, twenty women working peacefully on the various tasks from washing the paper to making the most exquisite perfume packaging ready to be exported to the United States. Their products and the techniques used are incredibly varied and they are always willing to innovate a new item. Digital printing of flower paintings on cards, frames and boxes give another dimension and looks similar to watercolor painting. Embossing using touches of gold, white and red is irresistible on their Christmas paper, cards and 3D Christmas trees. To n a m e j u s t a f e w, Sarawasti Papers’ catalogue include s t a t i o n a r y, w r a p p i n g paper, business cards, menus, gift and other packaging, frames and books. They have their own collection lines but can also work with you to design your personalized items. Barrack Obama’s family made to order a hand crafted family book for his visit to Bali. But you can do it too at a reasonable cost with your photographs and text. You can provide your own graphics or they can do the graphic creation for you. Possibilities are endless. To get an idea of their range of products, visit their shop “Kado”, on Jl Dewi Sita (corner of Gautama) in Ubud. Wendy Husband, the Education and Operations Manager at Bali Safari & Marine Park and Kali Sari both see great educational opportunities in the practice of recycling paper. Saraswati Papers has traditionally welcomed school groups at their studio to learn about the paper making process and to get hands on experience. For teachers reading this article, do not wait until the end of the year to contact them because that is a busy time for their orders and visits then might be feasible. Wendy Husband at the Safari Park encourages visitors to watch the paper making process and kids can have a go at screening the paper from the pulp bath and spreading it on the boards to dry out. The staff are also trained to explain the process to anyone who would ask questions. The green campaign is educational and increases children’s awareness through fun fact sheets, stickers, soft toys, hands on activities, educational animal shows and fun signs around the park. Round the World in Almost 80 Poo Papers… It is fascinating how many similar initiatives exist around the globe. In Asia, the Chiang Mai Zoo in northern Thailand sells multicolored paper made from its giant panda poo. Living mainly on a bamboo diet, the paper produced is particularly fine. The Chinese have jumped on the bad wagon with their Panda Poo Paper produced at the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base. Elephant dung is recycled into paper in Thailand and Sri Lanka. Elephant Dung Paper at the Thai Elephant Conservation Center of Chiang Mai Highway is one of the pioneers in the field (www. Mr. Elie Pooh from Sri Lanka produces many different types of elephant poo paper products retailed in America ( Their mission is to reduce some of the Human/Elephant conflict that is ongoing in Sri Lanka and is a perfect example of an eco practice reaching the community, contributing positively to the economy and helping resolve environmental conflicts. Some companies are putting efforts into producing original items. The Exotic Paper Company, a small family business from UK now sells online a variety of recycled paper products from elephant, rhino and reindeer poo. Their seasonal Christmas collection of reindeer poo based items include Handmade Reindeer Poo & Christmas Tree Seed Paper, Growable Letter To Santa Kit and several Reindeer Poo planters containing Reindeer poo compost are sold with a Christmas Tree seed. Whilst many companies are recycling exotic mammals’ dung donated by city zoos or safari parks, other countries are recycling the poo of their most common herbivores. So the Welsh have set up the Sheep Poo Paper company ( “It all begins by using only the very finest materials. We take great care to collect superfresh sheep poo from the beautiful (and rainy) mountains of rural Wales and take it back to the mill, situated in southern Snowdonia.” They also use traditional methods and a very old ‘Fourdrinier’, papermaking machine that they hire from a UK papermaking museum to achieve a stunningly smooth finish with subtle flecks in the sheep poo paper.

Symbolism takes a big part in the process of recycling to make paper. This company takes considerable effort to personalize their products. They not only give you the method to make your own poo paper but they also give the opportunity to send them your old clothes and rags to make your own special recycled paper. They produce wedding invitations out of plants the bride and groom pick themselves. Public awareness of environmental issues is another aim of this company. Building the first Sheep Poo Paper Canoe or making sheep poo paper with Gordon Ramsay for the menus of one of his restaurants are two good examples of how to make noise about important environmental issues. To continue the list of the use of endemic animal poo in various corners of the globe, we can find paper and unique artwork made of bison chips (dried poo) in Idaho, USA with Dung and Dunger ( From Australia, Creative Paper (www. make products out of various recycled paper materials from kangaroo and wombat poo. In the US, poo paper is used for “pooliticaly correct” fun. POOPOOPAPER collection makes use of the abundant supply of both elephant and donkey poop (both real and metaphorically speaking) to create eighteen unique pieces to appeal to all “regardless of what your political cup of tea may be!” ( Current products are original, fun and often come with a short awareness piece of information to educate the buyers. They are great presents that invariably generate great conversations. Looking at these new products from a more serious angle, we can understand that suppliers can have different motivations to recycle animal droppings to make paper. It can simply be a way to manage the poo generated in zoos and research facilities. Most often it is a push towards conservation as recycling poo means saving trees. At a larger scale, it also plays a role in the community by sustaining a local business and, as is the case in some zoos, the earnings offset the price of maintaining the animals. Art can be another motivation and finding new means and media is always interesting and original. Finally some ventures return the profit to support some conservation or green projects. The Great Elephant Poo Poo Factory Company from the US believes that there can be a middle way – “where people can balance their commercial pursuits and be good stewards of our shared environment”. They support elephant welfare and conservation initiatives and provide expertise or cash donations to large or small organisations offering similar initiatives. This company operates a flex-work cottage-based manufacturing production framework in Thailand. Many women can work at their own pace from home and generate income while they can keep their flexibility to attend their agricultural and household duties. They also provide employment to many ethnic minorities and help them integrate into society. Of course it is wise and legitimate to enquire how the generated income is spent. At Bali Safari, the profit will be used to continue and develop the green campaign within the Safari itself and support the Bali Minah conservation programme. We should all be proud that such initiatives have now come to Bali. Plan a visit to the Bali Marine and Safari Park with your family and kids, shop at the Kado boutique of Saraswati Papers or pass by their studio, buy original presents that will generate much constructive and positive conversation and spread the word around!

Nom de plume Occasional Articles From Our Readers

THE LOST LANGUAGE OF GHOST MONKEYS The Jakarta Post headline made Ritter change his plans:

Mining Corp. Blasts Threaten Endangered Primates Not that Ritter could read the whole piece-the newspaper idled under the elbow of Wisantro, the Hotel Tugu’s desk clerk. Boleh saya lihat itu? Ritter remembered enough of his Indonesian-he’d spent three years here as a child-to know how to ask: May I see that? Silahkan. Wisantro offered the paper. Ritter scanned the news. Wisantro leaned across the counter: a chance for conversation. Four in the morning; lobby empty: the clerk was starved for talk. But if Ritter wanted to keep to his routine-daily predawn jogging around the traffic circle in front of the Tugu-he’d better leave the news and get out the door. Normally this routine cleared his mind. Fourteen laps: must be four miles. Not bad for a sixty-three-year-old. Marathoner friends back home in California would laugh off the distance as nothing. But they didn’t have to inhale the smog-waste and wet heavy air of big-city Java. Fourteen laps, four miles. Not bad for an old man.

The cabbie was saying something. Fast loud clipped voice. Cigarette smoke and music from the car radio. Ritter tuned it all out, looked out the window, not at the driver, assumed the man was on his cellphone or hurling comments at passersby as the car slowed through villages. Pocked roads, thatch-roof sheds, dogs and pigs panting in treeshade, a very young girl squatting in a ditch pounding the ground with a stick. Poverty. That, too, he recalled. Louder, the voice. The cabbie’d been trying to get his attention. Ritter caught a few words and his interest quickened. Perusahaan pertambangan. Emas. Terancam ledakan. Mining corporation. Gold. Something some thing endangered by blasting. And not just animals, the cabbie was saying. He spoke too fast for Ritter to catch it all. The explosions and tunneling into the hills around here: those damned corporations tear up the land to find the gold they want; this business is going to kill us all. Chemical waste. Soil runoff. Death of all these trees. Trees Ritter’s father had loved; had hoped his son would love too. And once upon a time he had, Ritter recalled now. How had he let himself get distracted away into a field like finance? Hard to untangle the past fifty years. The cabbie said they’d reach Batu Putih and Tangkoko soon but if the Tuan didn’t mind he’d stop up ahead to show him something. What Ritter and his father had liked best about the tarsiers-strange, he’d rarely given this a thought since his dad passed away-was hearing them speak. Speak? The boy had asked before he heard it for himself. Come with me. Tomorrow morning. Listen for yourself.

And what was making him feel old this morning? That Jakarta Post piece. Filed from the island of Sulawesi. The kampong of Batu Putih, the forest of Tangkoko. The same kampong and the same forest he’d known so well as a child. Over fifty years ago. A lifetime. Masih hidup, ya? Every morning for the past week-the length of the conference Ritter was attending-Wisantro had welcomed him back from his run with the same little joke: Hey, you still alive? Ya, dan masih bernafas. Through his sweat and flushed face Ritter normally wheezed a companionable reply: Yeah, and still breathing. But not today. He asked Wisantro to book him a flight to Sulawesi. No word of protest from the clerk, no reminder there was still a day left to the conference, a gathering sponsored by the financial services group for which Ritter labored with ever-increasing sighs. No word, just the barest arch of an eyebrow: delicacy that marked Wisantro as a bearer of the old Javanese ideal of halus: refined, sensitive. Ritter recalled the word as he sat on the flight from Malang to Jakarta and on to Manado. Javanese friends used to say his father, too, was halus: a fine compliment for a foreigner. And Ritter suddenly realized-unusual for Ritter: his work made him too rushed for realizations-that his long-dead dad was partly why he was on this unplanned flight. It was his dad who’d introduced him to the animals in that news piece. Tarsiers: the world’s smallest primates, tree-dwellers, five inches tall, small enough to fit the palm of a hand, but glorying in long hairless tails that terminated in a tuft. Tarsiers. But they had other names. Tangkasi, in their home island of Sulawesi. Like the word tangkas, his dad had noted: agile, skillful. Good word for creatures with lengthy flex-legs that powered them for ten-foot leaps from tree branch to tree branch in search of the insects on which they feasted. Manado airport, newer, more crowded, different. But he still had to haggle for a cab-and was still overcharged-the same way he and his dad had always been; so he knew he’d come home. My God: hot. He’d forgotten how the sun here pressed a dead weight on one’s head. But they had other names, too, those tarsiers. Kera-kera hantu, the name he’d loved best as a boy: ghost monkeys. Ritter looked out the cab window and recalled the question he’d asked as a ten-year-old. Why ghosts? The explanation had come on their first walk in the Tangkoko preserve. His father was an advisor on loan to Indonesia’s forestry service, and he loved those woods, wanted his son to love them too. Because the tarsiers sleep inside tree hollows all day and come out at twilight to look for supper, he’d explained. They move about like shadows on tree branches, and people can barely see them, can just catch a glimpse in the dark of very small ghosts with very big eyes.

They’d risen early, before first light (father and son both liked that, catching the world by surprise: maybe, Ritter mused, that was why he liked his pre-dawn runs so much). They walked through the dark woods, Ritter’s hand in his dad’s. Confidence marked the man’s stride: his father knew these

go for sure.” This between puffs on his cigarette. “Sensitive ears. They may have already left. One of my friends says he’s pretty sure they’re already gone. Haven’t had time to see for myself. Too busy.” “Let’s go.” Ritter asked him to hurry. Late afternoon, four o’clock, by the time the cab reached the kampong of Batu Putih. He strode from the village straight into Tangkoko woods. His father would’ve been proud; he still knew the way. With luck he’d have time to reach their banyan tree-the one they’d always visited-before the night’s hunting began. The whine of cicadas in the heat, louder, more intense than any insect-transmission he’d ever heard in the States: like a pulse of current through unseen wires. The sound grew louder as he went deeper into the woods. Other sounds: croak of a hornbill, whoop-whoop-whoop of a koel. Buzzing from the shrubs and bushes and palms and fig trees: insects of all kinds. Late afternoon, his father had explained, the insects get loud, and that’s the tarsiers’ wake-up call: come and find something to eat. Ritter hurried: light beginning to fade. An ugly winged something on a leaf at his feet. A three-inch kecoa. Tarsiers dined on them. The word for them in English? Cockroach. Right. Strange, how much the memory of learning Indonesian was bound up with memories of ghost monkeys. Those three years in Sulawesi: how often he’d go to Tangkoko right after class-he’d been the only foreign child at the school-and stand by the banyan his father had first shown him and watch for sunset and the first tarsiers emerging and try out on them the new words he’d learned that day in school, words he’d offer these creatures without fear of ridicule as he mispronounced strange words, words for which he’d await a reply in their own tongue. Each species, speaking a different language, as his dad might comment, each understanding the other only imperfectly, but each at least within hearing of each other. “And that,” his father liked to say, “is worth something.” There. He’d found it. A clearing in the woods, and the banyan he remembered, well over a hundred feet tall, still as gnarled and forceful as he remembered. And there was the fissure he’d first explored a half-century ago. Cautiously he crept near, let his eyes adjust to the dimness, placed his head within the banyan, looked up. Yes. A cluster of four, each clinging to a branch in its sleep, one tarsier just above the next, curled in a group as tight as they could make it. Within that tree, fifty years peeled away.

woods. Pale gray in the eastern sky. Birds stirred overhead. “Here.” They stopped before a banyan tree. Thick twining branches looped about its exterior. A fissure like a cave mouth gaped in the trunk. “Put your head inside. It’s alright. Go on.” Cautiously-the boy wouldn’t have dared without his dad there; no telling what lurked inside-he peered within the tree-mouth. A shaft-like opening ran up, up, a hundred feet into darkness. Tree limbs grew in that space, each in turn rising within the shaft. “But there aren’t any tarsiers.” “There will be. This is their tree. They’ve been out all night hunting.” With dawn, his father explained, the creatures would return home. “Listen.” And then he heard it: shrill cries in quick bursts, distant at first in the grey air, but soon rapidly nearer, converging on the banyan. Again, the cries, from various directions: call, response; call, response. What are they saying? asked the boy. We can’t know for sure, his father replied. He said it was a secret speech. A lost language. “But I think they’re checking with each other to see if the whole family has survived the night’s dangers.” The taxi slowed as it climbed the range of hills near Tangkoko. Ritter couldn’t remember what else his father had said that morning about the tarsiers’ speech to each other as they neared their home tree, so he borrowed Wisantro’s small talk from the Hotel Tugu: Masih hidup, ya? You still alive, buddy? Ya, dan masih bernafas. Yeah, and still breathing. The cab paused on the crest of a hill. The driver waved with his cigarette out the window. A valley, and on the far side a mountain range of steep green slopes. But not altogether green. Entire hillsides had been gouged and scraped bare, their surface a scarred pale brown. Dust rose from the site. Earthmoving equipment, said the cabbie, pointing. Bulldozers and backhoes, plowing roads to the mine. A boom, and a billow of dirt. Another explosion, and another. “Blasting the hills apart.” The driver frowned. “The tangkasi will

Careful not to disturb them, he withdrew his head, retreated across the clearing, crouched, waited. The insect whine grew urgent. Twilight. Tree leaves lost their green, became silhouettes. Any moment now. In the banyan’s mouth, ten feet up, just visible: a shadow. Ears; large inquisitive eyes. The family’s nighttime scout, his dad had said once. If all looks safe, he’ll signal the others to emerge. Then came what the man had feared. Boom. Another explosion. Boom. A shudder from this wound to the earth. Ritter flinched. The tarsier saw the movement, turned its head, opened its huge eyes interrogatively upon the human. I know, I know, breathed Ritter. Danger. The creature regarded him a long minute. Distantly, another explosion. Then this five-inch creature did the bravest thing Ritter ever saw a being do. It chose to continue. It leapt out onto the branch of the nearest tree to home and emitted a cry, a cry Ritter recognized from years ago: All clear. Come join the hunt. A trio of shadows emerged from the banyan, sprang onto branches. The four called to each other. Then each went its way into the darkness. Despite everything, came the thought to Ritter: still breathing. Still alive.

The John Fawcett Foundation celebrates the conclusion of another successful year 2011

NC/Ns/I-25 Jan 12



In decades past, foreign settlers in Ubud often arrived more or less by accident and, enchanted by the rice fields, the Balinese and the culture, stayed and stayed. Sometimes the money ran out, and it became necessary to find a way to make more. Reaching into their dynamic environments, these newcomers began to create products that would in turn enchant buyers in faraway countries. And in so doing, long relationships between empathetic foreigners and their co-creating Balinese partners and workers developed. Many of these close and mutually beneficial associations have become multi-generational. And many of these businesses became models for an early form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) on a micro scale.

and stay home and would still receive his salary. But he said that if he stayed home he would get bored and soon die, so he decided to work in the mornings only. That went on for many years more.” Nadya’s philosophy of sharing runs through her life and work like a golden thread. “Being part of a community is both a pleasure and a responsibility. I found living communally and unconditionally to be a gift in my life. In the United States you are always negotiating who does what. But here in Bali there is more of a sense of collective function and just doing what needs to be done. I’ve been living like that for 35 years now.”

air brushing, painting of fabrics, beading, appliqué, pleating, tucking and using old textiles from Flores and Timor. Her artists punch motifs into kid leather by hand, hammering the patterns with the ancient tools used to make leather puppets; lasers are now used in the west for similar effects. The buttons on her clothing are all hand made using a technique from the Philippines, many copied from a 50 year old collection. Inlaid with polished shell and wood, each one is like a jewel.

The mutual respect and affection of these long-term business relationships created unusual labour relations models by consensus over time for issues like remuneration and retirement Forced flexibility has had many unexpected benefits. “I’m an easy-going employer. We’re like a family. If people feel part of the community, respected and heard, that is more motivating than money in terms of relationships. None of my staff has ever been lured away to work elsewhere. It’s a happy household.

CRS is now a buzzword for huge multinationals scrambling to demonstrate measurable human-scale social benefits related to their businesses. When CSR has not been an integral part of a business model from the outset, programs have to be created. But the beauty of the little businesses that sprung up and grew organically in Ubud and other parts of Bali over the past 30 years or so has been the way CSR automatically grew with them. The mutual respect and affection of these long-term business relationships created unusual labour relations models by consensus over time for issues like remuneration and retirement. Nadya’s story will not surprise some foreigners who began businesses here. As a clothing designer she worked out of Denpasar, Tabanan and Legian with a tailor in Denpasar who did all her production between 1978 and 1995. He suddenly moved his tailoring business to Tabanan where costs were lower, borrowing money against the value of his land to make the move. Not having consulted his clients first, he was surprised when only Nadya followed him out to Tabanan (a long way, then) and continued to work with him. Down to one client, he continued to borrow money from the bank without understanding how the system worked. Soon the tailor was deeply in debt and threatened with prison. Nadya gave him the money to pay off the bank with the understanding that she would take the money back in trade for tailoring. But he refused to honour the agreement or to return her sewing machines and patterns. These stories are not exactly unheard of in Bali, where business ethics can differ sharply from those of the west. But it’s all about attitude. Nadya picked herself up after the initial shock, dusted herself off and decided to start again. All of the tailor’s staff – some of them experienced tailors themselves -- came to work with her. In the mid 1990s she moved with her new team up to Ubud. She rented some cottages by the river from a neighbour and soon had about 20 people making clothing. Nadya’s team of workers is still from the same three clans, one each from Tabanan, Kutuh and Singaraja. Some have retired, some have children or grandchildren working with Nadya now and many spouses work together. “They were all villagers without much experience, but they all learned a skill,” she told me. “The experienced tailors taught the others to cut, to sew, and to make complicated and sophisticated clothing. I brought vintage clothes for them to study.” Nadya puzzled over how to pay them for these complex projects and asked their advice. They proposed a base rate along with piece rate according to the complexity of the garment, as judged by them. She agreed, and the workers are still paid according to this system although the amounts have increased. When one old man began to get frail, Nadya took him aside. “I told him he didn’t have to work anymore, that he could retire

“I decided early on that even though I didn’t have much money the most important thing was to give people stable employment. So although I didn’t need much production and I travelled a lot, it was important to provide stability for the staff so in the early days I would pay them even when it wasn’t busy. As business grew I needed more production and we’d do overtime. So there were two production speeds -- on and off. But everyone got what they needed.” Nadya’s clothing is complex, lush and intricately textured with each piece carefully crafted by hand. Eclectic, comfortable and versatile, almost every piece is fully reversible. She’s been selling her collections in the US and Europe in private shows since 1978. Her clients include Madonna, Vanessa Redgrave, Glenn Stiller, Norris Mailer, the mothers of Uma Thurman and Gwenth Paltrow and many dancers and New York cabaret singers. Clients recognize the artistry with which each piece is made. See “The concept of one-of-a-kind is very much understood and appreciated these days,” pointed out Nadya, who once worked in the fashion industry in Paris. “Each jacket can take up to three weeks to complete and may include textiles from China, India and Indonesia as well as many different elements like tucking, beading, painting, embroidery or patchwork. Clothing like this could only be made in Bali. It reflects Balinese artistry and attention to detail, sense of community and relaxed attitude toward time.” Each unique piece incorporates textiles she has found in her travels or created especially for her pieces. The skills of traditional Balinese painters, batik artists, leather workers and weavers is often included. Nadya’s focus is on texture. She and her husband Wahyoe Wijaya worked extensively with weavers in Denpasar and Sideman to develop fabrics. “We found two looms still operating in Denpasar and another 30 gathering dust. We started working with women weavers who had left their looms, forced out of work by mechanization. Together we experimented to get more texture and created many interesting textiles using elements like string and kerosene wicks to make heavier fabrics that are now used in interior design.” She now asks weavers to create textiles in more traditional weights and to incorporate soft metallics.

If people feel part of the community, respected and heard, that is more motivating than money in terms of relationships The genesis of Nadya’s style is ‘cooking with leftovers’. She often works with old fabrics in finite quantities, and has to mix materials to finish a garment. Each piece becomes a mixed media piece of wearable art, a philosophy that works perfectly in Bali’s richly creative environment. “Nothing is ever wasted,” says Nadya,. “Scraps of all kinds, patchwork and leftover rosettes are used to embellish and enhance the pieces. For years we used locally produced flannel blankets which were then batiked and old lace pieces from Jogja which we tie-died.” Nadya has also incorporated

“So many artistic people in Bali already had wonderful skills. I just stretched the context. I’d be inspired by something I found, look for the artist and create pieces around that media. I once saw a tiny scrap of fabric, about an inch square, which started me on a search around Bali for its creator. That exploration led me to a family I’ve been working with for 30 years.” At one point Nadya and her longtime Balinese partners Yan and Agung tried to create projects in East Bali and Kuta to employ more people. They tried to employ street kids working through their families, but found that the parents weren’t interested because the kids brought home too much money and the Kepala Desa wasn’t supportive either. So they created a rest house for the children instead and started exploring projects with Yayasan Spirit Paramacitta (formerly Bali Plus), a support organization for people with HIV. A couple of HIV-positive transvestites came to Ubud to learn a hand-sewing technique that creates a pattern on clothing from Nadya’s staff. The group grew to eight people in about 2004. “They were so productive that I began to incorporate patchwork and other techniques to keep them busy,” Nadya told me. This team is still working for her to their full capacity. Piecework can be an excellent system of employment. It allows women to stay home with their families instead of leaving the village to seek work, and they can make as much or as little money as they choose. Nadya has several village-based piecework projects through her staff connections. “It’s complicated and detailed work,” she points out. “Now the women are getting older and don’t want to do it anymore. The younger women aren’t interested -- they all want to work in spas where the environment is more social. My understanding is that this is also happening in other countries like India. The kids have other options and don’t want to go into handicraft, so the finely detailed handwork will disappear.” But the little workshop in the rice fields still makes beautiful and unique clothing for discriminating women around the world. Wearable art, made with heart. And CSR, Bali-style.
