MONEY MATTERS by Colin Bloodworth

LIFESTYLE AND HOW IT CAN AFFECT YOUR FINANCIAL HEALTH ‘Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’, or so the saying goes. Not sure how true this is but there is certainly a correlation between lifestyle, health and wealth. Let’s look at some of the issues. THE RISING COST OF HEALTHCARE It has been estimated that a 65-year old couple in the US would need to spend $200,000 on healthcare during retirement based on the man living to 80 and the woman to 85. Agreed, medical care in the US is very expensive but costs are escalating everywhere. The cost of medical insurance in Bali is generally higher than in Jakarta and as the years go by it will reach a point where it is just too costly to maintain. And this is likely to occur when you are probably going to need it more than ever. Of course you may decide to return to your home country and ‘enjoy’ the benefits of free healthcare. If you are British and you choose the latter option you are in for a shock. The once world-leading National Health Service is creaking at the seams. You may still receive adequate emergency treatment but if you need non-urgent surgery such as a replacement knee you may have to wait your turn for several years. Many people die before their turn comes up, which of course helps shorten the list. It is even rumoured that there is a ten-month waiting list at abortion clinics. POOR LIFESTYLE? – YOU MAY BE SHOWN THE DOOR When Gordon Brown was Prime Minister he raised a few eyebrows when in a New Year message to healthcare staff he indicated that people may have to fulfil ‘new responsibilities’ in order to establish their right to care. While no-one is likely to be refused treatment in an emergency, patients who smoke, drink heavily or become seriously overweight are increasingly being refused places on waiting lists for elective treatments and even non-urgent heart surgery. As anywhere in the world, if you are wealthy you can jump the queues and opt for private treatment, but at considerable cost. THE BENEFITS OF A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE A growing body of evidence points to the fact that moderate exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for most days of the week can substantially reduce the risk of developing some of the most costly and debilitating conditions including heart disease, cancer, stroke and even dementia. If you can stave off dementia and live on your own longer you can avoid the huge expense of long term care. But there are also immediate cost benefits. Being in good health in your earlier years means you will pay the lowest premiums for life, critical illness or income protection insurance. Some health insurers have been slashing premiums for those who allow their diet and exercise regimes to be monitored. Others are offering discounted membership of gyms. Other benefits of a healthy lifestyle? Less time off work, greater alertness and a greater chance of advancing your career with the accompanying financial benefits. HOW SMOKING CAN BURN A HOLE IN YOUR WALLET How many times have you heard comments such as ‘my father smoked like a chimney and lived to his nineties’? How many great world leaders have survived to old age even though they were smokers? Indeed, such cases are true, but in the past our lungs were not bombarded with the high levels of pollution that surround us today – at least in parts of Bali! In the past few years I have attended funerals in Bali and Jakarta of five acquaintances. Three of them were in their sixties and two in their eighties. And guess what? The three in their sixties were smokers and the two

in their eighties were not. Hardly a big enough sample to prove a point but you tell that to an insurance company! If you are a smoker and you apply for life or critical illness insurance you could find the premium is at least 50% higher than that applied to non-smokers. One bright spot for smokers – they can often obtain more generous annuities. These are pensions that are paid out as long as you are alive. IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE LIFESTYLE? It is never easy to break away from lifetime habits. But if you feel your lifestyle is affecting your health and is threatening to hurt your pocket then it could be worth making a supreme effort to change things. There are endless opportunities to participate in sports in Bali. There are plenty of gyms if you are not too keen on the outdoors. Not all sports require Olympic standards. ‘Hashing’ is an example of a sport for all ages and abilities. You are made welcome whether you can run a fast 10k or if you can just walk once around the beer truck. It gets you out and into a new routine. You also get to see parts of Bali and local life that the average expat or tourist would never see. The run is usually followed by a social ‘circle’ where everyone can relax, tell jokes, sing or just insult all the other nationalities in the circle. Almost nothing is sacred and no-one needs to get embarrassed. If you have a long nose you may get a ‘Hash’ name reflecting that. One of my friends is not in the least bothered to be known as ‘Elf’ because he is short. The important thing is to get some exercise, usually up in the hills, and to have a good laugh. It all makes for stress reduction and a feeling of well-being the next day (bruises and hangovers excepted). I will be happy to point anyone who is interested in the right direction.

IS THERE A DOWNSIDE TO ALL THIS HEALTHY LIVING? It is certainly outweighed by the obvious benefits, both physical and financial, of a healthy lifestyle but there is another issue that has to be faced. If you are to live well into your eighties or nineties you are going to need a significant amount of wealth or pension to fully enjoy those extra years. Few people, particularly expatriates, have properly prepared for retirement. Most are also unaware of the serious changes that are happening in the field of pensions as financially crippled governments struggle to balance their budgets. But more on this next time, unless the current turmoil in the financial markets takes a more serious turn for the worse, in which case I will have something even more depressing than pensions to write about. In the meantime, stay fit and healthy. See you on the Hash! Colin Bloodworth has worked as a financial adviser in Indonesia since 1992 and is now Director of PPI Indonesia, based in Jakarta.

are aware the more you become aware that life is suffering, being aware is also a form of suffering; not being aware is a worse form of suffering.” “Once you start your journey on the path of awareness there’s no turning back and saying you wish not to be aware anymore. Awareness is automatically there. That’s when I chose awareness to not being aware, because awareness gave me respite from things which caused me suffering when I was unaware.” Vipassana supports us in changing directions with our life: We stop running away from our cravings, aversions and delusions and begin accepting them into the folds of our awareness. Vipassana initiates an adventure of self-transformation. Bali Retreat 2011 In a recent Vipassana meditation retreat held at the Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist Monastery in North Bali, a student asked the guiding meditation teacher, Sayadaw U Tejaniya: “What is your advice if we are in a love relationship? What is the right attitude?” “Laugh! Whatever happens. Laugh. Keep laughing. It is such a powerful practice to be in relationship. Laugh.” Sayadaw U Tejaniya’s heartfelt transmissions of the teachings of Vipassana served to create an atmosphere of relaxation and fun during the eight day retreat. As a result, participants experienced emotional safety to publicly share personal experiences and ask intimate questions on how to skillfully navigate life’s disturbances using the principles of Vipassana. A former businessman and householder, Sayadaw began his Buddhist training in Burma as a teenager. He became a permanent monk in 1996 and currently lives and teaches at Shwe Oo Min Dhamma Sukha Forest Meditation Center in Yangon, Myanmar. (Burma) Sayadaw travels worldwide to spread the goodness of Vipassana.

MANY MINDS IN ONE BODY I came to be at this retreat when I received a SMS from my friend: “There is a Vipassana retreat at the Buddhist Monastery near Lovina. Want to join?” At that exact moment in my life I was acutely aware that I have many minds in one body. I was looking for a simple, direct meditation technique that would enable me to sustain the dynamic, radiant ease of living here and now within all conditions of life. I also wanted a technique that would engender a loving relationship with those parts of me that I want to reject. After a short excavation into Google-Land I learned that Vipassana was just such a technique. The retreat was billed as an eight day silent retreat of sitting and walking meditation. As a lifelong yoga practitioner, dancer, actor and singer this information stirred up resistance inside of me. As Sayadaw says in his book that arrived in my Yahoo inbox upon registration: “You have to stir things up a little for wisdom to arise.” I hung out with the stirrings for at least ten days before they settled and wisdom loudly spoke: ‘Hey, get with the program Tara!”

Vipassana is a non-sectarian meditation practice conceived by Gautama Buddha 25,000 years ago. This user-friendly practice is commonly referred to as ‘insight meditation’. Vipassana cultivates an awareness of the direct relationship between body and mind, moment to moment. The technique is simple: Place attention on the breath, rest in the belly, welcome and watch all thoughts, feelings and sensations that arise. Vipassana, as it is taught at Meditasi Mengenal Diri sponsored retreats such as this one, is a relaxed practice. There is nothing to concentrate upon, nothing to achieve, no right or wrong way to practice. We are instructed to accept and allow whatever arises to simply be just as it is, no matter what it is. Vipassana meditation cultivates awareness, understanding, wisdom and knowledge of the self and our world. Sayadaw U Tejaniya feels the purpose of meditation is to understand defilements: cravings, aversions and delusions in their many forms. When sensations of pain, a repetitive thought, and pictures from the past, feelings, pleasure, and despair arise the Vipassana practitioner directs awareness to this object of disturbance to simply watch it. For example, if sadness arises, let it be. Refrain from taking a mind journey into the story of the sadness. “Your job is to recognize any feeling as just a feeling. It is only a problem when you take this feeling as yours. We all have feelings. They belong to all of us.” Sayadaw reminds us. Hirok Ghosh, a businessman living in Singapore attended the retreat as an interpreter and advanced student of Sayadaw’s. Hirok is a 15 year Vipassana practitioner and spent 5 years in Burma, 3 as a monk. The first night of the retreat Hirok shared a story about his experience with anger. “I was teaching a university class. I saw this woman that I was attracted to speaking to a man. Anger arose. I allowed this feeling to be present and I kept on teaching. Throughout the class I maintained a watchful awareness on my anger.” Hirok watched and inquired about this anger for four days. Eventually his insights led him to the origin of his suffering. He was not aware that he held expectations about giving and receiving. Once he understood the origins of the angerexpectations- he could then act with knowledge and wisdom. When we remain with the disturbance as a mother sits with a hurt child, we cultivate a compassionate detached view. Curiosity arises. We begin to wonder and inquire: “What is this? Or “What is happening?” These questions lead us into insights about the origins of the disturbance. From insight arises wisdom, knowledge and thus understanding, leading towards preventing the disturbance from re-occurring. We may encounter and welcome the disturbance many, many times, with various insights, before true understanding arises. The practice of Vipassana can become a life-long companion. I asked Hirok: “How has Vipassana changed your life from one of suffering to living in equanimity?” Hirok laughed and said: “That’s the easy way of looking at things, but no. The more you

Fifty people attended the retreat. The first night of the retreat we were given the parameters: Morning bell at 4 AM; breakfast bell at 6:30AM. Group sitting meditation every morning at 9AM. Two hours a day group discussions with Sayadaw. Silence during mealtimes. The remaining hours until lights out at 10PM we are given the freedom to structure our time in whatever way we feel moved to practice Vipassana-walk, sit, and stay in our beds, dance, do yoga, write, read and even talk. The main instruction was: Do it all with mindful awareness. Great news. No sitting on my bum for 10 hours. However, the freedom to create my own structure at first felt daunting. Dr. Hudoyo Hupudio, MPH, who leads Krishnamurti Vipassana meditation retreats at Brahma Vihara Arama served as a translator as well as logistics coordinator for this retreat. He said that “Full freedom also brings about full responsibility on your part to make the most out of the freedom. You have to learn to live with that, because eventually it is what matters most.” I soon discovered that with the support of the shared intent of 49 other humans to practice with freedom allied with the deliciously designed voluptuous gardens, stupas, and water features of the monastery compound, agitation dissolved into a relaxed rhythm of moment to moment discovery. There are many places within this large terraced complex for participants to grow their awareness. A large lotus pond with fountains greets visitors upon entry. This lotus pond is in front of a stupa containing a golden Buddha and a Kuan Yin sanctuary. The next tier holds dorm rooms, another pond with a turtle and an open space. The third tier is a Tibetan style stupa next to an imported Bo tree (the tree under which the Buddha gained enlightenment) with a statue of Buddha sitting underneath. The upper tier is a magnificent green open space with stunning views of the sea and surrounding mountains. This green space sits in front of a replica of the famous stupa of Borobudur on Java. Below this stupa are more dorms, the cafeteria and a jungle ravine area lined with small meditation huts and mosquito netting.

A practitioner can sit for hours cocooned in the netting and commune with the life of the forest. Brahma Vihara Arama, built in 1970 is the only Buddhist monastery on Bali. It remains open during the day and early evening for visitors during the retreat. At one point in the afternoon I found it challenging to find a quiet place to meditate what with the snapping of cameras, the crying of babies and the enthusiastic talking of tourists. As guided by the practice of Vipassana I remained with this disturbance until the insightful dawn of understanding: “Ahha! I am looking outside of myself for a quiet place. The tranquility I seek is inside of me!” That insight enabled me to understand that even in the midst of crying children I can cultivate equanimity. Mealtimes proved to be the most practical application of mindful meditation. “I just ate the slowest meal of my life…and it was amazing.” One man confessed during a group interview. Sayadaw guides a mealtime meditator to observe what is happening while eating: “Greediness tends to come in as soon as a meal begins. Observe the mind first. What state of mind are you eating with? How is the mind feeling? Is it relaxed? Is it intent on eating?” We all agreed that at meals we are given the most obvious experience of the craving mind that yells: “I want more, I want more!” when our bellies are full. Our first impulse is simply to make this gnawing voice go away. “You can get to know this talking mind,” Sayadaw informs us. “Without trying to stop the talking or thinking, you can see the mind’s internal dialogue from morning until night. You are trying to understand the mind as it is You are observing to understand, not to make anything disappear.” The last morning of the retreat we gathered in the replica of the Borobudur stupa for our final group mediation. Later we had a closing ceremony and a few participants shared their experiences of the retreat. Many of us found ourselves sitting with sadness and the teaching of the non-permanent nature of life. Dr. Hupudio left us with something to contemplate upon our departure: “Being in the present moment continuously, in which the me/self and thoughts cease altogether, is the door which opens up towards freedom, according to the Buddha in the Mulapariyaya-sutta. When Buddha met the vicious killer Angulimala on the road the Buddha said to him: “I have stopped a long time ago. It is you who still keep running. Stop!” Before Vipassana: Running away from disturbances. After Vipassana: Sitting with them with awareness, inquiring with curiosity and wonder to gain understanding of their true nature. Besides other visiting teachers from around the world teaching their respective techniques of Vipassana meditation, Meditasi Mengenal Diri (MMD or “Awareness of the Self Meditation”) is taught in a weeklong retreats three times throughout the year: in March, July and November. Participants stay in a shared simple room and are given vegetarian meals. The retreat is offered on a donation basis. On the last morning of the retreat participants anonymously place their offering in a plain white envelope then deposit the envelope into a cardboard box. When retreats are not in session, individuals and groups are invited to stay at the monastery.

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at Visiting from Paris, Chantal searched Ubud for a better carrot cake than this one. At the end of her stay she pronounced it the best in town. Alan ate three pieces in one sitting. Even those who dislike carrot cake have a hard time not waxing poetic about this piece of heaven.

Four Bowl Carrot Cake with Nuts and Spices

Serves 8

Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 22 cm. round spring form pan and set aside. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, cloves and cardamom into a large bowl. With a fork or whisk beat one egg and one egg yolk together in a small bowl. In a third bowl put the three egg whites and a pinch of salt and beat until stiff peaks form. (You will end up with two left over yolks that you can use in another recipe.)

In a fourth bowl combine the sugar and oil. Beat with an electric mixer and then on a low speed slowly add the beaten eggs from the small bowl and beat well. Add the grated carrots and nuts and mix on low speed. Add the flour mixture being careful not to over mix. Now with a spatula fold in the beaten egg whites being careful not to over mix. If there are streaks of white it’s all right.

Ingredients: - 13/4 cups white flour - 1/2 tsp. baking powder - 1/2 tsp. baking soda - 1 tsp. ground cinnamon - 1/4 tsp. ground cloves - 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom - 4 large eggs, three of them separated - 270 gr. castor sugar - 1 cup canola or rice bran oil - 1 carrot (about 130 gr.), coarsely grated - 1/2 cup chopped walnuts - 2 Tbl. lightly toasted pistachio nuts, skinned and chopped - 2 Tbl. lightly toasted almonds, skinned and chopped - pinch of salt

Put this batter into the buttered spring form pan and bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before running a knife around the edges and taking off the spring form ring. Carefully remove the bottom and put the cake on a serving plate. Directions for the Frosting: In a small bowl beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until it’s soft and fluffy. In a medium sized bowl beat the softened butter, icing sugar, and honey. Add the beaten cream cheese and mix with a spoon. Frost the sides and top of the cake with the cream cheese mixture and sprinkle the top with the toasted walnuts. You can make the frosted cake a day ahead of time as it keeps well. Velbekomme! (That’s Danish for ‘bon appetite’.)

Ingredients for Frosting: - 200 gr. cream cheese, at room temperature - 70 gr. butter, at room temperature - 1/4 cup gr. icing sugar - 1 Tbl. honey - 1/3 cup lightly toasted walnuts, chopped

C/BT/I-09 March 11

Beautiful Boy One day a depressed student goes to his college and he commits a mass shooting, before taking his own life. His parents, of course, are devastated, however, the mass-media, for their own voyeuristic needs, decides to depict the parents as the cause of their son’s alienation. The parents are hounded by the media, and, after continually seeing themselves presented as examples of ‘bad’ parenting, they start to wonder if they were actually at fault. This is to bring incredible and entirely unnecessary pressures into their marriage, which inevitably starts to crumble. Director Shawn Ku tackles a currently topical and controversial subject, with intelligence and sensitivity. Michael Sheen and Maria Bello also bring much clarity and truth to their tough roles. Jumping the Broom Back in the 1960s this movie would probably have been made by somebody like director Douglas Sirk, and it would have starred someone like Lana Turner, for, ‘Jumping the Broom’ is a contemporary version of an opulent and stylized classical melodrama. At the wedding rehearsal of an ‘Uptown’ girl and a ‘Downtown’ boy the families meet for the first time, and it doesn’t take too long for all the problems of social inequality to come to the surface. However, the clever twist to this movie is that director Salim Akil employs a completely Black-American cast, which goes to show that class distinctions have no racial boundaries in present-day America. Angela Bassett makes a terrific snobby mother-of-the-bride, while, the wonderful Loretta Devine is not to be out done either as the grumpy postal-worker mother-of-the-groom. Larry Crowne Tom Hanks directs and stars in this light-hearted ‘educational’ comedy. When he is fired from his job because he doesn’t hold a college degree, Tom decides to enroll in a local community college, and he undergoes a course in Public Speaking. All right, Tom Hanks is not the most brilliant of directors, but, with this movie, he is able to capture very nicely all the tribulations of being a mature-age student. Also, he presents an engaging characterization of an ‘under-dog’, determined to improve himself and his possibilities. Julia Roberts co-stars as Tom’s love interest, and, as a jaded teacher who finds her faith in education being restored through Tom’s dedication and enthusiasm. Monte Carlo A teenage girl, and a couple of her best friends, having just graduated from high school, all go to Paris for a summer vacation before starting college. There, the American girl is mistaken for a famous European celebrity, and, everybody is whisked off to Monte Carlo to enjoy the Mediterranean high-life at somebody else’s expense. Okay, this is a silly comedy, but, in a weird way, I kinda liked it! I have always been a sucker for an actress playing ‘good’ and ‘bad’ twin roles. Television’s ‘The Patty Duke Show’ (1963-1965) readily comes to mind. Anyway, the movie stars Selena Gomez, who, as we all know, is Justin Bieber’s current new ‘girlfriend’. So, really, only star-struck, dewy-eyed, romantic young girls should actually enjoy the film. Mr. Popper’s Penguins A long missing explorer sends a mysterious crate from Antarctica to his son, Mr. Popper, a high-powered New York real estate agent. Inside the crate is a rare penguin. However, through a clerical error, five more penguins are also to arrive, and they all take up residence in Mr. Popper’s luxurious New York apartment, causing much chaos. Mr. Popper is separated from his family, and, with the penguins’ arrival, he sees them as an enticement to bring his wife and children back to him. This ‘feel-good’ family movie stars Jim Carrey, and he is reasonable enough, I guess, until the last ten minutes, when he reverts to his same old maniacal mannerisms. The movie also stars Angela Lansbury, and this is quite a treat for movie buffs of

Diary by Mr. Robet

the Golden Years of Hollywood. Miss Lansbury was born in England in 1925. She made her first American movie in 1944, and she hasn’t stopped filming ever since. Green Lantern Hollywood’s latest ‘heart-throb’, Ryan Reynolds, stars in this stupid sci-fi action movie. Ryan attempts to portray a reckless test pilot, who is chosen to join an intergalactic peace-keeping force, which is trying to stop an evil monster from destroying Earth, and wiping out all who live on it. Millions of dollars have been spent on this movie, but, somehow, it still manages to look cheap. Maybe, that is intentional, as the movie is yet again another one of those cinema adaptations of a DC comic book. The story races along, yet, there are a lot of odd continuity lapses, which makes you feel that a lot of the film has ended up on the editing room floor, to bring the show in at a more commercially viable one hundred minutes. Ryan flexes his muscles well, but, he lacks the power and presence to become a convincing ‘super-hero’. Page Eight English director David Hare makes a sleek espionage movie, though, it seems to be more about style than substance. Bill Nighy plays a British MI5 intelligence analyst, and, when he comes across some incriminating ‘chatter’ on page eight of a Top Secret file, he is put in the awkward position of either betraying his Prime Minister, or his country. The movie is rather convoluted, and it takes an awfully long time to resolve itself. There is also an awful lot of dialogue, which doesn’t really deliver anything of any great importance.

Stem Cells Cure Diabetes

Shashi Tarot Card Reading Crystal Healing Reiki Therapy JI Werkudara 520, Legian Kaja, Kuta Hp: 081 811 9634 email: C/He/I-12 Jan 11

Diabetes is becoming an increasingly common problem in our population and it seems to be striking people at a much younger age nowadays. The problem with diabetes is that it’s a silent killer: it usually develops gradually and the symptoms and signs are not often very obvious until the condition has become quite serious. In many cases once it does become obvious there has already been considerable organ damage. However diabetes can be prevented and treated effectively using natural and safe therapies, as this article will examine. Diabetes Statistics According to the National Institute of Health data from 2010, an estimated 25.6 million people aged 20 years or older have diabetes in the USA, which represents 11.3% of the population. Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death based on U.S. death certificates in 2007. This ranking is based on the 71,382 death certificates in 2007 in which diabetes was the underlying cause of death. Diabetes was a contributing cause of death in an additional 160,022 death certificates for a total of 231,404 certificates in 2007 in which diabetes appeared as any-listed cause of death. Another disturbing statistic is that the risk for death among people with diabetes is about twice that of people of similar age but without diabetes. It seems that having diabetes will, if not treated, lead to a much unhealthier and shorter life. Complications of Diabetes • • • •

• •

• • • •

• •

Heart disease is the most common cause of death in diabetics (68%) followed by stroke (16%). Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes. The risk for stroke is 2 to 4 times higher among people with diabetes. 67% of adults ages 20 years or older with self-reported diabetes had blood pressure greater than or equal to 140/90 or used prescription medications for hypertension. Diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults aged 20–74 years. 28.5% (4.2 million) of people with diabetes ages 40 years or older had diabetic retinopathy, and of these 4.4% had advanced diabetic retinopathy that could lead to severe vision loss. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, accounting for 44% of all new cases of kidney failure. In 2008, 48,374 people with diabetes began treatment for end-stage kidney disease. In 2008, a total of 202,290 people with end-stage kidney disease due to diabetes were living on chronic dialysis or with a kidney transplant. About 60 to 70% of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nervous system damage. The results of such damage include impaired sensation or pain in the feet or hands, slowed digestion of food in the stomach, carpal tunnel syndrome, erectile dysfunction, or other nerve problems. Almost 30% of people with diabetes aged 40 years or older have impaired sensation in the feet, with for example, at least one area that lacks feeling. In 2006, about 65,700 lower-limb amputations were performed in people with diabetes. Diabetes Cure – Stem Cells

As you can see from the above list of complications this is not a disease that you want to have, and if you have it, you should do as much as possible to eliminate it from your system. Notice I didn’t say that you should “treat” it with drugs. The reason being is that drugs have not been found effective at actually removing the complications of diabetes or at reducing the deaths associated with diabetes. Actually just the opposite is true as shown by the 2008 Accord Study. In this study the risks for heart attack, stroke, and death in 10,000 diabetic patients were closely examined. The results were quite surprising. Those who reduced their blood sugar levels the most using drugs (to 6.0% A1C or lower) had a higher risk of death compared to patients who did nothing and allowed their blood to rise between 7.0 and 7.9%. As blood sugar levels dropped, more patients were having heart attacks or dying! In fact, the study had to be canceled

to protect the remaining participants. So if drugs don’t really help to reverse diabetes and its dreaded complications, then what else will work? In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) a group of diabetics given stem cell injections were able to stop their insulin injections for the first time after their bodies started producing the hormone naturally again. The study, by a joint team of Brazilian and American scientists, found that one of the first patients to undergo the procedure had not required insulin injections for three years. The authors led by Julio Voltarelli, from the University of São Paulo in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil wrote: “Very encouraging results were obtained in a small number of patients with early-onset disease. Ninety-three per cent of patients achieved different periods of insulin independence and treatment-related toxicity was low, with no mortality.” In an accompanying editorial in JAMA, Dr Jay Skyler, of the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami, wrote: “Research in this field is likely to explode in the next few years and should include randomised controlled trials, as well as mechanistic studies.”

This is very promising news, and gives hope to not only diabetics but also to those suffering from any disease. Stem cell therapy is the future of medicine and is here now. I believe that stem cell therapy when combined with other natural and holistic therapies like detoxification, ozone and oxygen therapies, natural hormone balancing(including HGH, testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, and natural thyroid), vitamin and antioxidant infusions, and nutritional therapy, has the potential to unlock the healing code and to reverse most of our current degenerative diseases.

05 October - 19 October, 2011


By Kim A. Patra SRN/RM. C/He/P-27 July 11

Man Made Machines that are Stealing Our Children waiting area, where they can witness first hand the carnage and feel the grief of the relatives as mothers wail and fathers collapse into desperate piles of grief when their sons or daughters disappear through the double green doors and onto the corpse trolley. Then perhaps a voluntary shift on the rehab ward were dozens of young brain injured people lie emaciated, being painstakingly fed mush through tubes and baby spoons, and having their giant diapers changed by parents and relatives that cling to threads of hope that one day their loved one will become the person they once were again. Most, however, do not.

In the past few weeks’ expatriates on the Island have fare-welled two more young people, lost to motorbike accidents. They are not the first and sadly they will definitely not be the last. This is a tragic and senseless loss of life. Humans by nature seem to have a built in self preservation mechanism that makes us believe that “it (accidental death) will not happen to me”. This is what allows us to get out of bed in the morning, drive our cars, bikes and travel on airplanes and even walk up the street without a constant fear of death. But why does this confidence over-ride reason? We know that we should wear seat belts in cars, we know that helmets will save our skulls, we know driving drunk is risky business and yet we still perform this acts of daring with the firm belief that it “won’t happen to me”. I am saddened when I see the multitudes of local people that ride the roads with no helmets and seemingly no sense of road safety. At least they have the excuse of not being able to afford a helmet or not being educated to the dangers of not wearing one….but those of us that have the financial ability and the knowledge of the danger of not wearing a helmet? Come on! I can’t help but feel anything but anger when I see this on the roads, anger that verges on fury when I see adults commuting with children on motorbikes, who make the conscious decision to protect them selves with helmets and goggles and allow their children to ride totally void of any protection at all. Are children that easy to come by and is their life not equally if not more precious than your own?? What am I missing here? Then there is the excuse of “I am not going very far” and “ the road I will be using is very quiet.” Fact is you can be seriously injured while you are stationary on a motorbike, and the cause of the accident is not necessarily a result of your actions. The World Health Organization has released figures that show motor vehicle accidents are the world’s biggest killer. In this group most of those killed are young men, the vehicles most frequently involved are motorbikes, and the region with the highest statistics is South East Asia…in other words we are living right in then middle of an epidemic zone. Over one million people are killed each year in road accidents, most are between the age of 10 and 25 years. Nearly 400,000 young people under 25 are killed in traffic accidents every year and millions more are injured or disabled. So it’s our young and naturally fearless ones that are on the front line of this epidemic. No one seems to be immune to this, and it’s the young folk that have a double dose of the “it won’t happen to me” factor. My own children have been out there on bikes, without helmets and taking not the slightest bit of notice of me. Why should they? I am a parent (and therefore not cool!) and nature dictates that at a certain age a rebellious monster will raise its head and gnaw at the apron strings that bind them. They have been lucky so far, and I pray that lady-luck will be beside them until maturity settles their restless curiosity, and keeps them in a marginally safer zone. (Some people though it seems, never grow up!) I know that many schools are including road safety in their curriculums, and I applaud it, however I do feel that we really need to bring home the shocking truth to our kids in a very blunt fashion. Perhaps all youngsters should spend one Saturday night in the Sanglah emergency room

C/He/I-15 Dec 10

The WHO has put forward some suggestions to decrease road toll figures, but how effective could they be in a country like Indonesia? • Lowering blood alcohol limits – but we don’t have any testing equipment at all here do we? • Instant narcotic assessments – No I don’t think we have those either. • Graduated drivers license program – It took me 3 days in a queue to replace a stolen drivers license last month (..and I paid extra!). A graduated license program? HHmmm. • Raising and enforcing the age for driving licenses – Yep, I’m all for that. 10 years is way too young, and there are a lot of 10 year olds in my street on motor bikes. • Lowering speed limits – What speed limits? • Road improvements – Well we’re getting there slowly. How about starting with the traffic lights at Simpang Siur Roundabout? When you approach from Sunset you can see both red and green lights at the same time! • Safe playing areas for children away from major roads – Yeah right. There’s no money in that! Let’s just put up another ruko or café instead. • Enforcing restraints (seat belts) and helmets – Seems to me the helmet law seems to have become a little relaxed lately. Especially if you ride a Ducati and the police would never catch you anyway. We are a long way off being a road safety conscious country. In this, and many other areas, it is up to the individual to take responsibility for them selves. No we don’t have breath testing here, so does that give you the right to get on a bike or car and drive off blind drunk? There is a reason why (in developed countries) these rules are put in place, and yes, driving under the influence of alcohol / drugs is the major cause of road deaths. I would also like to say something about helmets and head rests. A helmet is not just a fashion accessory. They need to be of some reasonable standard to afford any protection at all. And what about head rests in cars, we don’t REALLY need those do we? I mean they are so un-cool! But imagine this – young girl driving an old car with no headrest, stopped at a red light. Car behind her does not stop in time and hits her from the back doing about 40 km / hour. Her head is thrust back, and then forwards with such force that her spine is snapped at the neck. It’s something you don’t forget when you’ve seen it. I saw it. She was 17 years old. And how about this! Has anyone driven down the bypass just North of Sanur on a Saturday night? There are hundreds of bikes lining the road waiting for there chance at 2 wheel version of a “fast & furious” challenge. They completely ignore any other traffic as they scream along at unbelievable speeds. And the police? Where are they?

the art of body You might have a Wheat intolerance (and not even know it!) Why is wheat causing so many health problems for so many people? Whole wheat has traditionally been considered a high fiber and highly nutritious food. It is the most widely consumed cereal in the Western world today. More than a billion people use it as a staple in their diet and wheat production has almost doubled since the turn of the century. In Western society it forms part of our most common foods including bread, breakfast cereals, pasta, pastries, biscuits, cakes and crackers. This makes excluding wheat from our diet particularly difficult. The reason wheat is popular in todays’ culture is because it is easy to grow and produces an abundant harvest. It has a long shelf life and is a very adaptable food. The wholegrain can be made into many different types of flour, bran and wheatgerm, which, in turn, can be made into many different types of foods. Wheat also has some nutritional advantages being wholesome and rich in fiber. If you have tried to give up wheat you will notice that no other grain will make the same light textured bread or pastry. Wheat alternatives to bread and pastries always tend to be heavier. The secret ingredient in wheat that makes it such a wonder food is gluten. Gluten is a protein which has a similar consistency to rubber. It enables wheat dough to rise and bind. Gluten is, however, also the reason why wheat becomes such a problem for so many people.

True wheat allergy is extremely rare and potentially life threatening. Other adverse reactions to wheat seem to be increasingly common. These tend to be the result of a wheat intolerance. An intolerance to wheat will not trigger a life-threatening immunological response but may cause a wide variety of symptoms. The affects may be immediate or delayed and may be the result of a single ingestion of wheat or an accumulative ingestion over a number of days.

Symptoms of wheat allergy or wheat intolerance could include: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Arthritis Headaches Bloated stomach (some call it a wheat baby) Depression or mood swings Diarrhea Eczema Feeling dizzy or faint Joint and muscle aches Skin rashes Sneezing Suspected irritable bowel syndrome Unexplained tiredness and lethargy Unexplained coughing Unexplained runny nose General low energy

So why does wheat cause these adverse reactions in some people? Wheat was first grown in the Middle East over ten thousand years ago but the wholesome wheat products of ten thousand years ago differ greatly from refined white flour today. With the rise of the industrial age, processing of flour increased so that generally today only 70% of the grain is used. However, while whole wheat is far better than refined wheat, wheat is still far from an ideal food. It is a poor source of protein and is not easily tolerated. Bran provides fiber but there are far better sources of fiber and a study of irritable bowel syndrome found 39% of patients improved after eliminating wheat. It is the wheat protein called gluten, which is the main source of the problems people experience with wheat. Wheat is very high in gluten which, when wet, is a sticky glue-like substance. Because gluten is so sticky it is difficult to digest and can cause all sorts of problems in our digestive tract. It forms a sticky mass, which lines the stomach wall and hinders absorption in and out of the stomach. It encourages the growth of unfriendly bacteria which, in turn, create toxic substances and gas. If your digestive system is in peak condition it should be able to digest the gluten but many people’s digestive systems are far from peak condition. In addition, the body may, due to genetic inheritance or poor diet while infants, have a gluten intolerance. The number of people identifying a link between a wide range of adverse symptoms and wheat is large and increasing. There seems little doubt that introducing alternative grains into most people’s diet would benefit their health. If you suspect you might have a wheat intolerance, try to seek alternatives from wheat for a week or more. If eliminating wheat from your diet gets rid of your symptoms, continue avoiding: • • • • • • • • •

Breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, crackers, doughnuts, pies, pretzels, and all other baked goods. The vast majority are made from wheat flour; look for alternatives by allergy-safe manufacturers Breakfast cereals, both hot and cold Pasta, including gnocchi, spaetzle, chow mein and filled pastas. Rice noodles, pure buckwheat soba noodles, and pastas from allergy-friendly manufacturers are good alternatives for home cooking Snack foods, especially if seasoned or highly processed Soups, gravies, and thickened sauces Breaded meats or vegetables, such as fried chicken or okra Dumplings, meatballs, lunch meats, meat loaves, and similar foods (often held together with breadcrumbs or flour) Beer Salad dressings, Worcestershire sauce, and other condiments.

Lovina Lovina Gotta Love Lovina The Bali stopover for yachts participating in Sail Indonesia 2011 (the Darwin to Singapore yachting rally) was at lovely Lovina, 10km west of Singaraja, in Buleleng, North Bali. Over 75 yachts were safely anchored in the tranquil waters of the Bali Sea in an ideal setting of light winds, calm oceans and a mountain backdrop to inspire. Chief of Buleleng Regency Tourism Office, Drs. Putu Tastra Wijaya MM. said that, “We are happy that the yachts have come to Lovina and hope they and their family and friends come back to North Bali and enjoy our spectacular nature and beautiful scenery.” He also said that supporting Sail Indonesia 2011 is an investment in the future and hopes that it encourages more visitors to the region giving it a much needed economic boost and help create employment for young people. The local authorities really turned on the hospitality for the visiting yachties with welcome ceremonies, local tours, cooking classes, handicraft exhibitions and cultural displays. Warm Farewell At Binaria Beach, Lovina on 22 September over 100 yachties were given a warm and beautiful send off by the people of Lovina. Starting with an orchestra of traditional Balinese music, followed by some exquisite Balinese dancing that saw yachties and locals join together in a special atmosphere timed perfectly by being held as the sun went down. Speeches were given and one by Drs.Bagiada MM., Regent of Buleleng Regency, was very gracious in giving a sincere and safe farewell to yachties in English. Then it was off to the Sea Breezes Restaurant right on the beach for the Farewell Gala Dinner with food, music, dancing and conversation. Some of the yachties got up and sang along with the local band. Especially popular was a heartfelt version of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” that went down very well. The band was fine on its own with a mix of music from the west and local Lovina music. They did a really good version of “Let It Be Me” by the Everley Brothers. Yes, in Lovina listening to a live cover version of an Everley Brothers song played by a good local band under the stars, warm night and a light breeze. Only in Lovina. I had to pinch myself. It doesn’t get any better than this. “Best evening yet”, I heard over the frangipanis. After the fun was over some of the crew s taggered back to Cleopatra Beach Bungalows typical of many beach side villas in Lovina. Beautifully kept gardens, friendly staff and views of night time of lights on the ocean and mountains. Not so much traffic too and not the obstacle course footpaths like those in Kuta. Sail on Sailor

The consensus amongst yachties at the Farewell Dinner was that Lovina is a great place. The women skippers and crew members were especially delighted with the shopping. It was one of the first chances since leaving Darwin to go bargain hunting. Clothes were very popular, as were the cooking classes and of course stocking up on the fresh fruit and vegetables galore from the Singaraja Market. One English couple were hanging out for some French cheese. Skipper Peter Benziger from sv Peregrina said that after being at sea for a

few months it was great to go into the hills around Lovina and see the volcanoes, lush green rice padis and wholesome food being grown and sold. He was also impressed with the respect that the people still have for ancestors, temples, traditional song and dance and the enthusiasm by all to keep the traditions alive. Everywhere they went they got the call. “Hello Mister” and made to feel very welcome. He promised that all yachties had taken many photos of Lovina and would post them on the personal blogs, facebook etc to show what a wonderful place Lovina is. The Sailing so Far

Drew and Hilary from sv Starfire, a self built catamaran said, “The weather has been superb and ideal and every day was the same.” He said that sv Starfire being a lighter yacht had no trouble with the lighter winds than those found in more temperate regions. Sticking close to the coast he sailed through the normal land and sea breeze wind pattern. Offshore in the morning and onshore in the afternoon. “Most of the stops along the way have been fantastic and the people very friendly.” he said. Kevin, Trish and son Andrew from sv Landin have sailed from Darwin too. Kevin said, “The greatest thing so far have been the people we met. Without any doubt whatsoever.

The seas have been comfortable and winds reasonable SE at 10 to 15kts or less. Good sailing so far.” Andrew said his favourite thing so far has been the hot springs near Lovina. “Very refreshing” he said. Michael, a young kid from sv Ivory Street said the best thing for him was diving at Wakatobi and Gilli Air. Some of the yachts headed down the Badung and Lombok Strait to Benoa to drop off or pick up family or friends. They found the waters and currents a bit hairy but not beyond anything experienced in other parts of the world. Next stop for the Sail Indonesia 2011 rally is Java and then eventually Singapore. Singaraja Singaraja Sailing Singaraja Singaraja is the preferred choice for yachties sailing through Indonesia as it lies directly on the favoured Indonesia cruising paths and is a fabulous place to visit and rest up. The local government has ideas to make Lovina an even better place to visit for yachties. Plans are afoot to build a modern marina that can handle up to 100 yachts or other vessels at one time. Some have said it could be built at Lovina while others lobby for Singaraja and link it with the Old City to provide onshore support. Singaraja has been a destination for yachties for centuries and having been there and spoken to a lot of people has the potential to be a major modern sailing destination for years to come. It is also a great place to visit and thank you to Putu and his wife, Mamon from Sea Breezes Cafe and Yanis and Ketut from Cleopatra’s for all your friendliness and hospitality.

05 October - 19 October, 2011


This fortnight we continue in the Libra cycle of Peace, Love and Harmony. The only sign changes are Venus and Mercury moving into Scorpio on the 9th and 13th respectively. Full Moon is at 18 degrees of Aries on the 12th and highlights relationship tension as it opposes Sun and Saturn conjunct in Libra. With Venus freshly in Scorpio, these same relationships will be taking on a more serious tone anyway. Saturn is now putting everything into some form of structure and organizing, committing and solidifying within them. The Full Moon in Aries on the other side of the scales is encouraging independence and a focus on the self. Finding the balance between the two is the challenge and Saturn is a weighty counterpart on the Sun’s side of the equation. Emotionally we may all be a little agitated and quick to temper, with some surprises as people proclaim their independence, out of a fear of co-dependency. It’s time now to look towards interdependence, seeing that things work better when we co-operate, co-create and allow room for the other persons ideas, beliefs, perspectives and very importantly, feelings. Venus in Scorpio is looking at an all or nothing situation, and this may just be too much for some of you with a stronger sense of freedom predominate in your chart. Remember as Libra keeps everything looking nice, you may be confronted with some more obvious truths around the Full Moon. Some of these will be blurted out in the heat of the moment. FULL MOON 18 Aries 24 October 12 10:07 a.m.

ARIES: Although Planets in Libra can be a little annoying and are probably stretching your tolerance, at least Mars in Leo is allowing you to assert yourself and command attention. Remember the Full Moon focus is in your sign and so you will be well placed to make the necessary changes you have in mind around that time. What may appear as restrictions, could simply be your call to take responsibility. There is nothing to fear here as you move into a larger version of your life story now. Weighing up the pros and cons is just a part of this movement. This is not the time to rush in unprepared. TAURUS: As Venus moves from Libra to Scorpio, we go from nice to naughty, from sweet to sensual and this is the moment many of you have been waiting for. If you move through the Full Moon unscathed, your relationship has undoubtedly reached a new level of commitment. You have forged new pathways within your partnership. For those who are single, friendship has become something new and exciting, with much potential for sharing your depth of emotion opening to you now. Taking on responsibilities that include others, is more apt to occur at this time. GEMINI: Conversing has felt very diplomatic of late. The good news is, that as Mercury bursts into Scorpio all censoring will be off and an acute depth will arise within conversations. As fickle as some may suggest you are, this will have even you pinned to your comments. You are being requested to make some verbal commitments as the Sun joins Saturn in fellow air sign, Libra. Venus also in Scorpio, is no lightweight when it comes to relationships, so be very aware of what you are getting yourself into. That Scorpio energy has a sting to it and loves to retaliate when crossed. CANCER: This Sun/Moon cycle creates a T-square to your Cancer Planets, which may cause a little stress in your life, or it could act as the catalyst that motivates you to make changes in your life. Many, including you, have had the opportunity to assess and release the past over these recent months. So now, what is it that your heart truly desires in respect to relating? Getting into the feeling side of this question is where you will place yourself, and begin to put your own needs first. How does it make you feel to be in a supportive and loving partnership? What would it take to allow that? LEO: On a slightly more serious note, confrontation can come when you least expect it. Although it has been smooth sailing for many of you, the lightness of the past weeks may now evolve into some more investigative conversations around your relationship. Your partner may begin asking some awkward questions or you may be asking yourself some very serious and thought provoking ones. If you can be honest with yourself, rather than take a strong ego stance, all will be well and much will be achieved now, that can take you into a deeper place within your relating. VIRGO: Healing comes in many forms and is often linked to a joyousness and lightness of being. It is often when you can laugh at yourself and with others, that we truly begin to heal. All that has been serious can be lightened and commitment can be entered into in a place of beauty and with ceremony. There is no room for doubt as you make the necessary movement forward. This is the time for action and to show that you really mean what you say. Others are taking you at your word, so now comes the follow through. You are much stronger than you give yourself credit for.



LIBRA: Many of you have birthdays this fortnight. Highlights around the Full Moon, as the fiery side of your own nature comes into play and you are prompted to be a little more frivolous and support your words through innovative action. This can be in the arena of relationship or for many in your work and business projects. Teaching is also a distinct possibility now, as Saturn joins the Sun in your sign. There is a little teacher in all of us, it’s just a matter of allowing your expertise to flow to the surface and to be willing to share it with others. This can be on a one to one basis. SCORPIO: Venus and Mercury both enter your sign this fortnight. Partnership in all its guises is of paramount importance. Old ideas of relationship are quickly going out the window and new ones being tried and experimented with. It feels like a bit of urgency to all of this and you are compelled to make changes and some of these abruptly. Not everyone is accustomed to the speed at which you travel, and this could create a little grief, although there is not too much that will hold you back now from your own appointed mission. Do a little damage control along the way.

NC/Ns/G-5 Oct. 11

SAGITTARIUS: The North Node is moving through Sagittarius and aligning you with your soul’s purpose or mission. Sometimes this feels so far from our logic and yet this is an aspect that is closer to us than our thinking and lives in the feeling and sensing part of our Higher Self. Alignment with this Higher Self will bring you a strong sense of purpose and a surety to your actions and movements. The temptation is always to gain or to strengthen the ego. Yours is the power of choice and free will and you get to use it with discernment through communing with your Higher Self. CAPRICORN: Saturn joins the Sun on the Full Moon to jolt you along on your path. This will come as a bit of a wake-up to many of you as things have gone along unnoticed and now are ready for dislodgment. As issues are brought to your attention you are willing to investigate and navigate this territory with honesty and impeccability. Adjustments are needed, and communication will set these in place for you and those concerned. This is all a part of that long process of assessment, clarifying and changing through transformation that which no longer works. Have patience and understanding. AQUARIUS: Through the stimulation that occurred towards the end of September, many of you are now headed in a new direction. Spontaneous opportunities that felt too good to let slip by have been followed through and you are now settled into these. With Neptune retracing steps in your sign, you are feeling a little more unconditionally loving than normal and this is a part of what has allowed these changes to take place. Asserting your will, as your heart’s desires, is what has brought all of this into play. Take note then when passion arises, as this is your prompting for action. PISCES: Chiron holds the healing balm and will distribute it wisely over the coming years. A large part of that comes in the form of unconditional love. Gone are the days of self-sacrifice and martyrdom. These are now replaced with self-love and service. When you place the emphasis on self-love first, your service can only be from a space of Love and without sacrifice. As you generate appreciation and gratitude, strength will naturally emanate from your physical heart and as you live in alignment with Joy, boundless energy will be yours and then you serve through example.

Ganesha Bookshop

Independent bookseller in Bali since 1986 Welcome to the ANZ Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2011. Our 2011 theme, Nandurin Karang Awak, Cultivate the Land Within, has laid the ground for a rich and diverse program of discussions, debates, performances, film screenings, literary feasts and workshops in more than 40 venues around Ubud and beyond. “It has been a tumultuous year all around the world and even our busy office has been buffeted by the winds of change. It is due to the immense loyalty and faith of the UWRF staff that we are bringing to you our eighth Ubud Writers & Readers Festival. To my team, I salute you and thank you for the enormous amount of hard work and vision that you have contributed. This is truly a collaborative affair. I am also extremely proud to welcome ANZ as our naming sponsor, who came on board in an effort to rescue the Festival from financial woes. ANZ is one of Australia’s most respected banks and their support is a testimony of their commitment to Australia, Indonesia and the Arts,” stated festival Founder and Director, Janet De Neefe. Every year as the program for the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival gathers momentum; writers are invited from the far corners of the globe. Said Director Janet De Neefe, “It’s a joy to scour the literary horizons and extend invitations to the leading lights and freshest voices on the international stage such as: Alexander McCall Smith (from UK- The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency), Alice Sebold (from US, The Lovely Bones), Junot Diaz, (the Dominican-American who received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) and Colombian writer, Juan Gabriela Vasquez (The Informers) coming in from Barcelona, along with many other renown voices from around the world. But what brings equal delight is the fact that there are increasing riches to be mined within our very own neighbourhood.” The 2011 Festival boasts thirty-eight writers, educators, and performers from Indonesia as well. Janet explains, “It is no secret that Indonesia boasts an extraordinary number of creative artists and writers figure largely among them. The Festival has grown well beyond the confines of the printed page and embraces writers of blog, stage, spoken word and music. In fact, music takes centre stage in Indus, one of the main venues on Saturday 8 October

in a session called Building Communities through Music, which celebrates the inspirational and life affirming work of young musicians and performing artists”. Featured in the session are Raoul Wijffels of the $1ForMusicFoundation, Javanese Hip-Hop trailblazer Marzuki and Antida’s Anom Darsana. The session will be pulled together and moderated by the charismatic and influential Chair of $1ForMusic, Rudolf Dethu, who has been involved in the local music scene since he was a teenager. Anom is a Balinese legend through his untiring support and nurturing of young creative Balinese through the renowned Antida recording studio in Denpasar. He has worked throughout Europe across genres and in fact he and Dethu are combining musical and technological expertise to build the Festival’s Paul Kelly fundraising concert on a secure footing. Fans of the innovative and eclectic Cambodian Space Project will be keen to know that Australian Julian Poulsen will be part of the event.

A pleasantly laid back restaurant opens in Ubud this month; it’s short on tourist bustle and noise, long on good food to share, inexpensive drinks and witty conversation. The Chillout Lounge plays vibey but relaxed music, and it’s the kind of place where you feel comfortable turning up on your own, meeting some like-minded people, or just sitting in a sunny garden to wind down. There’s a wicked Mojito and the menu includes four sections; healthy, cheap, comfort and social food (plates to share), including “Granny’s legendary Scottish pancakes” and the Malaysian/Indian dish Roti Canai. The owners sponsor the Sacred Childhoods charity, with 10% of restaurant’s profits going directly to the charity. Planned mid-week madness includes Debates, Giant Twister, Poetry and Painters (Tuesday night on a rotation basis) and a ‘Who wants to be a millionaire?” competition every Wednesday night, where the winner takes home one million (rupiah) cash!

The villa complex is fully staffed, with six twin or double bedrooms, a 25 metre pool and spacious private gardens - and guests are just 300 meters walk to the ceremony in the palace, or five minutes from most of the main festival venues. San Villa feels so much like a relaxed private home, with open Australian/ Californian gardens, that I found myself wandering into the kitchen to make myself a cup of tea. It was the gorgeous smile on the Balinese staff members that reminded me that I’m supposed to sit back down and relax a little more. 24 Jalan Suweta (Palace Road), Ubud.

Say What? Question: I have been on and off with my current ex-boyfriend for the past 10 years. We both have been married and divorced. Our relationship started out hot and heavy. We started living together with our kids within the first year. After that, he started cyber flirting on the computer, and I found out. He wanted to have a threesome with two men with one woman. When we were sexually intimate, all he talked about was the man’s private parts and that a woman’s private area is the most unattractive thing on earth. He wanted me to go online with him, so that I could look at pictures. I thought that was weird. I moved out 8 years ago, and we have been arguing on and off ever since. He wants me to get into his fantasy. I ended it 4 months ago, and he keeps contacting me, saying he loves me. He doesn’t date anyone, and he says he really just wants to be friends. If I agree to be his friend, he will be happy with that forever -- no sex, just us being together as good friends. He has no desire for me and doesn’t seem to desire other women. I told him I am moving on, and that he should not contact me anymore. Sometimes I wonder if I am making a mistake, but on the other hand I think having sex is a normal part of being human and being close. I know that he did love me at one point, but I wonder why so many years have gone by without his seeming to want to be without me. He calls me all the time even though I refuse his calls. He has a lot of chances to meet girls and still doesn’t seem interested in a relationship. But our main breakup was about his activity online. He wanted to talk online to women from other countries; so it would be difficult to meet in person. He just liked talking about sex and had no interest in being sexual with me. I don’t get it. I am not an ugly girl. As a matter of fact, every time I go out with my girlfriends, I am the one who gets hit on. He used to get very angry when I went out. For what, I don’t know. He didn’t even care to touch me. He seems to just want me there, so that he can relax and not have to date. Is this normal? Was our relationship just a lie? Dr. ZZ: It takes all kinds. Was this normal for you? Definitely not! Was it normal for him? Apparently so! From the nuances of the jealousy, the fantasies and the lack of sexual interest you describe, chances are your ex has some underlying, unresolved, core sexual issues. There is also a significant undertone of neediness in his personality. It’s good that you moved out, that you told him you’re moving on, that you asked him not to contact you anymore,

and that you’re calling him your ex-boyfriend rather than your boyfriend. Now, all you have to do is put your physical muscle behind your words and uphold the decisions you have made. If he wants a friend, there are lots of other people he can approach. Chances are there’s also another, more compatible partner out there for you. This fellow has too much unfinished business to be a suitable mate. You can do better. Rest assured. Question: I’ve had the same boyfriend for about 3 years, which is a really long time considering I’m only 17. Lately I’ve been struggling with feeling bored, but I do care about him. About 6 months ago I cheated on him with another guy. I told my boyfriend about it, and we broke up. But shortly after, he came back, saying that he still loved me, and we got back together. So I ended it with the other guy, which seemed to be purely physical. The truth is, I have feelings for the other guy. I never told anyone, and he was supposed to be leaving for his home country, so I was just going to forget the whole thing and move on. Now, he’s not leaving anymore -- at least not for another year. About 2 weeks ago, he admitted to having feelings for me too, but I’m not sure if we could actually ever get into a relationship. He’s just not really that kind of person as far as I can tell. Should I dump my boyfriend, and let things happen with this other guy? Or should I just have fun and forget about feelings?

Dr. ZZ: If you are looking for a smooth, easy game plan, I can’t help you. Your boyfriend may not be the end of the line for you, but the other fellow you’re describing doesn’t sound as if he’s ready to play house either. All that considered, you’re 17 years old and, most importantly, you are at an age when you are still figuring out who you are, and what you care about in life. As you are exploring different venues for fun and excitement, the most important thing you can do is to honor yourself and to be as honest and gentle as possible with others. That doesn’t mean to stay with someone just because you’re not sure if you’ll find someone else better. If you’re bored, move on. But holding onto your boyfriend while you’re looking is unfair. Be honest with him and end it cleanly. Then wait until things are making more sense in your life before you stress out on a relationship. Otherwise, it’s just not worth it.

The Corpse Flower

The Titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum) has the largest and most foul smelling flower in the entire world! The flowering structure can reach more than 2.9 metres in height when it blooms, opening to a diameter of up to 4 feet. The Titan Arum is native to the rainforests of western Sumatra, here in Indonesia. The Indonesian common name is bunga bangkai, and translated literally means ‘corpse flower’ and this is also used as a common name for the plant in English, as the flower really does smell like the rotting flesh of a corpse. I am seriously thinking that this flower is not suitable for a Valentine’s Day gift! The first European to discover this strange plant was Italian botanist and explorer Dr. Odoardo Beccari who came to Indonesia in 1878. When it was first discovered the first stories about the plant drew skepticism among many European botanists. It wasn’t until the first specimen flowered at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England in 1889 that the world began to take notice. The flower has since been coveted by collectors due to its huge size, fascinating appearance, strange blooming patterns and it’s most famous habit of producing a foul odor reminiscent of the smell of rotten flesh. Whenever the plant has flowered in cultivation it has attracted an enormous amount of attention. A Titan in bloom is as rare as it is spectacular. A plant can go for many years without flowering, and then when it does it only lasts for just a few days. Some people travel around the world hoping to see one at that moment when it flowers. To see it in bloom can be a once in a lifetime experience. It first opens at night, and becomes so hot that it steams. When the flower is fully open it gives off a scent that has been described as something like rotten meat or fish. The plant emits this putrid scent to lure pollinators such as stink bugs, dung beetles and flesh flies, and sometimes the odour can be detected as far as half a kilometer away. The insects are attracted by the smell and the heat, and they climb down into the blossom and then exit covered in pollen, to seek another plant and another flower, helping to spread the pollen and perpetuate the species. Different species of Titan emit different odours. Many of the species produce a variety of scents ranging from rotting meat and dung to a nauseating gaseous stench. Some have been documented to emit odours that have a distinct urine smell, while others smell of rotting fruit or cheese. A few species however produce pleasant scents, for example there is a species known to emit the smell of bananas while another smells like carrots.

The entire flower structure is actually not a single flower but an inflorescence (a stalk of many flowers). The bloom will only last 1-3 days. The sickly smell is produced only for the first 8 hours that the bloom is open. The flower grows up from an underground tuber which may weigh up to 70 kg and which can stay dormant for 1-3 years. The tuber produces only one leaf at a time. The leaf can reach a height to 6 m tall and 4.5 m in width. This plant is a rare sight in botanic gardens. Worldwide, only about 70 plants have flowered in gardens since their discovery. The Titan is difficult to cultivate because it is susceptible to rotting and fails to produce seeds or offsets easily. Each plant contains both flowers and florets. The plants rarely set seeds because the female flowers open first, but by the time the male florets are producing pollen the female flowers are no longer receptive. Even in nature pollination is a rare event because there must be another similarly timed pollen producing flower in the vicinity. Flowering of an individual plant can take place at any time of the year so the odds are heavily stacked against pollination. The rainforests of Sumatra are under massive threat of deforestation, as vast areas are logged for timber and burnt to make way for palm oil plantations. It is estimated that Indonesia has now lost around 70% of its original rainforest cover, and the scale of deforestation is continuing at an alarming rate. The loss of habitat is directly affecting Titan populations in Sumatra, as is over collection from wild populations for horticultural purposes.

“Waiting for Godot” It dribbled. It was a boringly slow dribble. What had started as a glorious energetic morning had, once again, been reduced to lethargy. It was like this every morning. He’d jump out of bed eager to get into another productive day only to find that turning on the shower, rather like the relaxed but somewhat stubborn ‘wait awhile bush’ (Aussies know what I am talking about), suddenly grabbed his attention with the clear inescapable message “just hold on a minute, you are under my power and like it or not you’re going to have to wait for a while.” The water dribbled pathetically from the shower head, he could almost hear it mumbling “oh no, you don’t want another shower do you? You only had one last night. I can’t be bothered.” While the pressure, or lack of it, was bad enough, waiting for the hot water was even worse. He should have realised when he first took on this house and came across the skeleton sitting covered in cobwebs on the bathroom stool still with a towel wrapped around its waist. He had named the shower Godot and, like Beckett’s characters, he had become very creative at passing the time as he waited. He soon got bored counting the tiles on the floor. Playing nerdy games on his iphone kept him occupied for a week or two. He tried crosswords but it’s hard to concentrate when your feeling like you want to strangle someone. Then he got serious and had a pretty extensive library installed in the bathroom seeking out 500 page doorstops novels to pass the time but then, still without hot water, he started contemplating self mutilation and suicide. Enough was enough so in desperation he called the emergency number of the Bali Association of Professional Plumbers, they only have 2 members but they do provide a very helpful counselling service for people suffering from PAS (plumbing anxiety syndrome). They were very supportive and gave him some useful information regarding the most painless ways of moving oneself to another spiritual realm. So what was it that had lead to this debacle, where was the ever absent Godot? In fact a combination of factors had contributed to a water system that simply didn’t work. The first factor was that the bathroom was up on the fourth floor of a very tall house, indeed oxygen cylinders were supplied at the bottom of the stairs for anyone contemplating an ascent. The water pump was powerful enough but, set at 30 to 40 psi didn’t give much pressure at the showerhead 22 metres above. Let us first get to grips with the figures. Psi (pounds per square inch) are those old imperial units that should have died with the ark but are of a very convenient size when talking about water and air pressure and this could well be why they are often still used on tyre pressure and water pump gauges. There are, of course, other units of measurement for pressure, for example divers (or anyone else with water in their ears) use the ‘atmosphere’ which is the pressure of the air at sea level and is equal to 14.7 psi. For you who think in the more progressive metric headspace 1 psi equals 6.89 kilopascals (kpa) and a bar (almost the same as an atmosphere) is 100 kilopascals or 14.5 psi. All very interesting if you are mathematically inclined, pretty boring if you aren’t but don’t worry about it. Have a nice cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit and let’s see how this applies in practice. Water is rather heavy stuff. If a diver goes down 10 metres the weight of water pressing down on him increases the pressure by an atmosphere (an additional 14.7 pounds of weight on each square inch of his skin) on top of the air pressure at sea level. The same applies to water pumps, you will need to pump water up to a pressure of 14.7 psi to lift it 10 metres.

In our problem house with a shower head 22 metres above the surface of the water in the water tank the pump will have to pump a pressure of 32 psi to get it up there. This pressure will only just get the water up there, it won’t give you any additional pressure to make a dribble into a squirt (it is a little known fact that pressure is needed to turn dribbles into squirts). In the house with our Godot problem the water pump was set between 30 and 40 psi. Pumps of this type have 2 switches, the first senses when the water pressure is low and switches the pump on (in this case 30 psi) and the second when the pressure is high which switches the pump off (40 psi). It can be seen that the pressure in this system would have varied between 30 and 40 psi and most of this pressure was needed just to lift the water – no wonder it just dribbled.

C/Bm/I-05 Oct 11

This house had a second problem in that someone had either wanted to sell more “stuff” or simply had that fateful tendency that non engineering types have of making things bigger “just to make sure”, in the absence of knowledge the word “overkill” tends to spring to mind. The pipes in this house were a dog’s breakfast of expensive green pipes. Because the position of the pump had not been thought about carefully an additional 17 metres of pipe had been used. To add to the problem even further the inside diameter of the pipe was a somewhat obese 20 mms (millimetres) when 12 mms would have been adequate. As a result of 17 plus 22 metres of 20 mm diameter pipe the pipes had 12 litres of cold water in them which would have to be replaced by hot water before the hot stuff reached the shower. 12 litres at a flow rate of one nat’s bladder per second - no wonder Godot never arrived. By using a more sensible 22 metres of 12 mm diameter pipe only 2.5 litres of cold water would need to be replaced by hot which would bring the hot water delivery time down from around 20 years to a mere 2 days.

C/Bm/I-05 Oct 11

To add yet more support for Godot’s recalcitrant cause someone with a wicked sense of humour had decided that a 50 litre hot water tank was large enough so by the time the hot water did get there (if it ever did) the tank was already minus a quarter of it’s hot water. So, to make sense of all this: If you have low water pressure check the pump pressure and the height difference between the surface of the water in your water tank and the height of the showerhead or other water outlet. For every 10 metres of height difference you will need about 15 psi of water pressure and then a further 15 or 20 psi to give a good healthy pressure in the water flow. You can get someone to adjust the pump to give you this. To get hot water quickly you need good pressure and small diameter hot water pipe (12 mm internal diameter is alright). You also need a reasonably short pipe length directly from the heater to the shower.

C/BM/G-15 June 11

Bear in mind that in Bali where the ambient temperature is always quite warm you won’t need oodles (an oodle is an alpine measurement of volume and comes from the Swiss word ‘oodle’ meaning cow’s udder which was popularised in the lyrics of yodelling songs sung by frolicking milk maids who have a bit of a thing for bovine breasts) of boiling hot water for your shower so a small diameter pipe will suffice. Finally a rule of thumb for storage water heaters – you will need a 50 litre tank for a kitchen, an 80 litre tank for a bathroom and a 100 litre tank for 2 bathrooms. Solar water heaters need larger tanks. As for Godot, I wouldn’t bother waiting if I were you. Phil Wilson Opinions expressed are those of Phil Wilson.

Hanamasa is Japanese, via Jakarta. It is a chain restaurant but one with style, hidden on

Jln. Drupadi [off Jn. Kapten Cok Agung Tresna] in Renon. It is amazing what you can find if you deviate from the main roads in Bali. Smart, modern and air-conditioned, Hanamasa offers quite incredible value. Three of Japans’ most popular eating styles; Yakiniku [you cook yourself on the table BBQ], Shabu-Shabu [you also cook at the table, but in a simmering pot of flavoured broth] and Robatayaki [‘things on sticks’, cooked for you over a grill]. The unusual method here is the buffets of raw and marinated ingredients for you to select from, meats, seafood and vegetables for each of the three cuisines. However it does not stop there, there is also a fresh salad bar and to finish off an ‘Es Campur’ style buffet bar where you once again you make your own, selecting all the ingredients you wish to include. All in all you choose from all or some of the 5 buffets on offer. All you can eat for approx $12 p.p. total [only beverages are extra]…amazing value! The menu is only in Indonesian, the lack of Japanese and English quite surprising although with its buffet style it is less important than normal. Many imports from Java come, and go, but this one is here for good. Hanamasa is a great addition to the great value eating area of Renon, which is slowly breaking away from its pure Indonesian cuisine base and threatens to become Bali’s centre for International ‘cheap eats’.

Bali Bakery, in Jln. Hayam Wuruk, Denpasar, has always offered better than average

breakfasts from early morning. An excellent standard is their simple old English Bacon & Eggs [poached eggs too, and better than most] large bacon serving, toast of your choice and crispy potatoes, Lyon style with fried onions. Now they are experimenting with Breakfast Chef’s Specials. Recent offerings have included Eggs Benedict with a difference; poached eggs but with back bacon, sitting on toasted walnut bread and topped with a lime & coriander hollandaise. Other options have been Oven Baked Egg on a black sesame seed bagel topped with a tomato salsa and a touch of Mexico; Huevos Rancheros, eggs with black beans and cheddar cheese on a lettuce and avocado tortilla. A touch of Seminyak!

Istanbul Café has only been open for one year [in Pengosekan, Ubud] but its birth has been quite traumatic, with many dramas unfolding in its first few months. The place has now settled down and is booming, the multi flower setting producing a restful space for this Turkish eatery that includes a number of International dishes as well, under its new young Turkish chef/owner. A totally different and more subdued management style to his predecessor. Kofte are always a good way to start [or just nibble with drinks at the bar or in the lounge], simple tasty meatballs of beef. Mains include Kebabs [all meat dishes are so-called] and Shish Kebabs [skewered meat interleaved with different vegetables]. Imam Bayild is proving very popular, eggplant with minced lamb, onion, tomato and green peppers, as is their Lamb Casserole, a very traditional Turkish claypot. Menu prices have also been greatly reduced as compared to the previous operator, and nowadays the entire menu is normally available, every day. Eternal at Ametis is a classy new restaurant on Jln. Pantai Batu Bolong [the road to Canggu

beach]. Surprising that it serves only Indonesian cuisine, but their highly credentialed executive chef Nyoman Maleachi [ex 4 Seasons, Jimbaran] presents it at its traditional best, often with a modern makeover. Udang Galah Papaya Salad is wonderful and fresh, char grilled prawns marinated with turmeric, combined with coriander and papaya or Deep-fried Squid with cucumber pickles and sweet chilli, both making excellent starters. The Sapi Rendang is tender braised beef in a spicy sauce with tamarind and candlenuts, combined with potatoes and red beans. Chicken is in that sauce from Manado, Rica-Rica. Udang Nenas is deep-fried prawn tails with charred pineapple, crisp Thai basil and a sauce with a bite! Then there is the wonderful, simple Opor Ayam, chicken cooked with galangal and lemongrass, and many more dishes to tempt the taste buds.

Art Café probably has the smallest street frontage of any restaurant on Monkey Forest Rd, in Ubud. Driving past, blink and you will miss it. However if walking past you can not miss it in the evening as live music [acoustic only], and a full house attracts attention. Very narrow but it does extend a long way back towards the rice paddies. The menu has been greatly expanded since the opening and now offers quite a range to go with the melodic music which makes quite a change from the usual loud electric noises that scream out at you from everywhere else in today’s Ubud. XO Suki & Cuisine is a strange name for this new chain restaurant [the 1st outlet opened in Mal Galeria Kuta earlier this year], it combines the offerings of two famous Surabaya restaurants, XO Suki [serving traditional Chinese Steamboat] and XO Cuisine [a la carte menu combining true Chinese and Indonesian style Chinese dishes]. It is found on the street with the longest name in Bali, Jln. Kapten Cok Agung Tresna, in Renon. It is yet another great budget restaurant for this ever-expanding eating area. Open from 10.00 a.m., not for Dim Sum but for the healthier option of Steamboat which can be just vegetarian or combined with seafood and meat. As the ingredients are only lightly simmered they retain most of their original goodness. The all day dining menu offers many popular dishes. Pangsit [deep-fried prawn or chicken dumplings] are a common starting point. Chicken can be with ginger, garlic, kung pao or even Mongolian style. Soft Shell Crabs are offered in many different versions, including one with XO sauce, of course! Basic fish, squid and prawn dishes are also available at very reasonable prices. Roast Pork in true Hong Kong [Cantonese] style is a specialty of the house and can be ordered as a half or full bird. This chain’s fame has preceded it as only open a couple of weeks but the car park is already full every day. Stage II will be private dining rooms at the rear of the initial restaurant, coming soon.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

Taste the Difference! Deus ex Macchina is well known to enthusiasts in both Sydney and Bali. Their Bali factory sits amid the ever-disappearing rice paddies of central Canggu. The high showroom/gallery towers over the local landscape, filled with hand restored vintage motor bikes, and custom made surfboards and bicycles.

at the same time. For me this dish has everything. Based on a Biryani [which originated in Sri Lanka, but has spread to all neighbouring countries] chicken pieces, raisins and cashews are sautéed with rice, berries, leaves and subtle spices to make this great dish. I savour every mouthful.

However not so many people seem to have discovered the magic Deus Café. It is one of Bali’s great foodie secrets! It sits on the outer veranda that surrounds the showroom. A comfortable bar offers eating and drinking space in the kitchen corner. Food with taste! A variety of different Asian cuisines, all faithfully re-produced, plus a few creations.

Not far behind is a simple Malaysian Indian Curry. Here the chicken is cooked on the bone, no doubt grilled but with flesh so tender it may have been steamed. Covered with a thick masala of intense flavour, and served with yellow rice. The Thai Krapow [chicken or beef] is a surprise, ‘krapow’ is just the Thai word for basil and that flavour certainly comes through loud and strong. In Thailand the meat is minced and heavy with chilli and Thai basil, here they are slices of tender meat without the chilli, just sweet basil. Different but still great!

Open early for breakfast [early enough for the dawn surfers hungry after fighting the waves, and local businessmen on the way to their office] they offer the standard items [Fruit Salad with Bircher Muesli, French Toast, Ham & Cheese Croissants, Eggs Benedict, Poached or Fried with Bacon], local [Black Rice Pudding] and a few more exotic things; Baked Eggs on Hash Browns, an Omelette of Goat Cheese, Mushroom and Spinach and Breakfast Burritos [scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese wrapped in a tortilla]. Together with coffee from a real espresso machine, that most important breakfast ingredient. All day snacks double as entrees and finger food for the drinkers, late afternoon and well into the night. They include Deep-fried Wontons stuffed with chicken meat, Sea Salt and Pepper Calamari, Beef Rollers [marinated beef strips in teriyaki sauce], Prawn Croquettes and the unusual Ji Tu Si, finely diced deep fried chicken pieces combined with coriander, garlic and pepper, spread on toast with a sweet chilli sauce. Soups and Salads are available on the lunch menu, but more are on the dinner version [which is also available at lunch if you want a bigger selection]. Soups include the Thai special, found all over Bali in a variety of versions, Tom Yam Goong and its chicken alternative the ambrosial Tom Kar Gai. Salads are numerous and varied. Duck [sliced meat with sticky rice, lime and chilli dressing], Pork Belly [deep fried and crispy with lettuce, lime and palm sugar], Thai Beef Salad [sweet basil, mint and coriander], Soba Noodle [with teriyaki grilled tuna and cold black soba noodles, ponzu dressing], Green Papaya, the original Som Tam, shredded papaya tossed in a coriander dressing topped with crushed peanuts and dried shrimps. However as wonderful as all these dishes are it is for the Mains that I go to Deus Café, lunch, dinner or in between. The first dish I ever ordered here was their Sri Lankan Chicken, and one that I continually re-order. The skeptics may call it an expensive Nasi Goreng, but then they obviously do not appreciate such a well balanced dish, the flavours subtle yet almost full strength

Twice Cooked Chicken is leg and thigh, marinated in ground turmeric, steamed then fried. Chicken Martabak is Malay style, spiced chicken and vegetables rolled in an Indian Roti, cut into easy to eat squares, for me a great entrée or finger food whilst sipping, but here listed amongst the mains. Larb is a popular Thai dish, Larb Moo is minced pork, the lime, palm sugar and fish sauce give it that sweet and sour taste the Thais love. The BBQ Pork is also Thai style, coated with chilli powder, tamarind, mint, coriander and ground rice.

There are a few seafood dishes but the Malee Yum Pla is WOW! Whole fish is deboned, floured and lightly fried in pieces, then tossed in the wok with mint, coriander and lemongrass. Fantastic! The Mixed Seafood [prawns and squid] is cooked with the Chinese origin Choo Chee sauce, very different. Pure Chinese is the Kung Pao Chicken, sweet and spicy with onions, chilli, garlic and cashews, as is the Black Pepper Beef. Many Vegetarian dishes are also available including some vegetarian versions of the above dishes, replacing the meat content with tofu. Sushi Night was Thursdays, but by popular demand there are Deus Sushi Specials on every night, and the very special Specials on Thursday and Friday evenings only. Sushi as you have never had it before, and sometimes in name only as it is often combined with tempura and wild sauces, creations that even surprise the Japanese! Sushi, Californian style by Tyler Mars, who happened to call in for lunch one day after surfing, and decided to stay! There is now also a mini Deus Café just offering snacks, salads and sandwiches, no mains] at the new Deus showroom on Jln. Laksmana, Kerobokan. A relaxed lunch at Deus Café is what Bali is all about, soft subtle flavours from a very high quality kitchen, out amongst the rice paddies of Canggu.

Great Event, But No Sex Thanks We like to party, so it seemed like a good idea to bowl on out to El Kabron, which has a prime cliff-top position at Pantai Cemongkak on the Bukit, on October 1 for the first of three extravaganza afternoons – that’s what they said on their Facebook anyway – featuring art, food, dance and music. It was the Distaff’s latest 21st birthday next day, indicating a requirement for immodest celebration. And since Hector holds firmly to the belief that he is not a day over 30 – and with the assistance of a wig, a face-mask and a couple of uppers on the way there has occasionally managed to fool adjacent revellers until they have had to call an ambulance – frivolity seemed in order. Considerable further appeal was added by these parties being well outside the so ho-hum beer-and-footy confines of the local Anglosphere, or even its upmarket offshoot that prefers wine and cheese. This one had tapas, as befits a Spanish restaurant, live music and the opening of an exhibition of art by Letitia Balacek on the theme “the dynamic lines and colour of Bali.” Organisers David Iglesias Megias and Hellen Sjuhada promised fun and frivolity. El Kabron apparently also offers something else, called Sex on the Cliff. But your diarist did not try this. He has never had a head for heights. Three events were scheduled on successive Saturdays. The October 1 opening, headlined Sunset Chillout, precedes an October 8 limited-seat dinner (yum!) and fundraising event to benefit the SoleMen project – the SoleMen have just completed the inaugural Bukit Walk associated with the ROLE Foundation. Last in the trio is an October 15 bash including an auction of Balacek’s art, also for charity. Over the three weekends, Balacek was geared up to adorn El Kabron’s sea-view veranda with her remarkable drawing and live-art. You’re invited to come along and engage, talk, or simply get inspired. Sounds fun! The opener certainly was.

Bank on a Good Show This year’s Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (October 6-9) got under way this week, bolstered by some very nice funding from ANZ Bank via its local Panin Bank operation and, as always, Janet DeNeefe and her team put together a great programme. There’s one book launch on the programme that should attract lovers of poetry, especially if they are familiar with the nuances of Australia’s much misinterpreted working class culture. It’s Bearers of Fruit, by Nancy Inglis, whose CV includes nurse; mother; environmental and social activist; historian; winemaker; poet; and writer. The book contains 327 poems, documenting Inglis’s experience from her forties into her eighties. Its artwork is the work of Inglis’s daughter Linda Buller, herself a painter and known in Bali as the heroine for Ubud street dogs. Inglis and daughter put on their road show on October 7. On the music front there’s been something of a coup, with the acclaimed Al-Izhar High School Community Choir & Orchestra coming from Jakarta to join creative forces with the gamelan orchestra of SMAN 1 Ubud High School. That’s also on October 7. Festival organisers warn there’s a risk that audience members might catch Goosebumps. On a different intellectual plane the festival features two African writers in conversation at the Alila resort: Nigerian born Chris Abani is a renowned contemporary novelist and poet, a man of huge talent who has been vilified, imprisoned and harmed for his outspoken words. Ugandan born Indian Mohezin Tejani has been roaming the world for four decades since being exiled from his home by that silly old despot Idi Amin. They will be sharing their stories with international journalist Hassan Ansah. There’s plenty of food for thought in that, and food of the other sort will be provided in the form of a North African feast designed by foodie and mystery woman Peta Mathias. We should mention, for anyone feeling jaded by modern existence and apt to reminisce about their disgraceful former lives, that famous bad boy scribbler DBC Pierre is having a leisurely lunch at the Four Seasons Resort (the one near Ubud). He is offering some truths behind the tall tales that made headlines across the globe when he won the Man Booker Prize in 2003 for his acclaimed novel Vernon God Little. The fellow now lives in an isolated rural village in Ireland, a world away from his previous performance envelope. He’ll be chatting (audibly) with his good friend Salena Godden, billed as queen of Britain’s spoken word circuit and herself a literary bombshell. You can find full details of the 2011 UWRF programme on their website and Facebook.

Dogged by Rabies Keen observers would have noted that September 28 was World Rabies Day. That’s something of intense interest in Bali, where upwards of 130 people have died of the disease

since it broke out in 2008. The painful saga of the initial response is now history, and it does seem, on the latest carefully doctored reports to be released for public view, that it is on the way to being a controllable emergency. Australian consul-general in Bali Brett Farmer said this at the World Rabies Day function in Denpasar: “Human deaths from rabies have now dropped by 68 percent compared to the same period last year, but we want to see this figure fall to zero.” Well, yes, that would be good plan. There’s no need for anyone to die of rabies – it is untreatable and invariably fatal once symptoms appear – provided adequate human rabies vaccine is available (adequate in quantity and quality) and hugely expensive immunoglobulin can also be provided. Thus far, that hasn’t been the case. People who have had a full preventive vaccination course do not need the immunoglobulin, only the post-exposure vaccinations. Since 2008 Australia has provided a total of A$1.1 million towards combating the disease in Bali. Most of this has gone to the dog vaccination campaign. So let’s all hope we hear even more cheering news next World Rabies Day.

He’s Our Star We read in the estimable diary column in The Australian newspaper – it’s called Strewth, one of the lesser adjectives commonly heard in newspaper offices – that historian Ross Fitzgerald, a long-time friend of Hector (well, the guy who ghost-writes for the lazy buzzard at least) may soon be immortalising himself on the little screen as well as in print. Strewth reported on September 28 that fans of Larry David and Austen Tayshus (they’re Aussie icons; that’s all you need to know) would be pleased to hear of a new project. Fitzgerald, columnist with The Australian and co-author with Rick Murphy of the recent biography on Austen Tayshus (Sandy Gutman to his parents) titled Merchant of Menace, tells Strewth a pilot for a TV series based on the book is in the pipeline, starring the man many call the most controversial performer in Australia. “The show will be like Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, partly scripted but much improvised,” Fitzgerald told Strewth. “Five minutes of each episode will involve Sandy seeing a real female therapist who specialises in treating children of Holocaust survivors.” The working title is Standup. Plans are also being made for Gutman to play the character Grafton Everest in a TV series based on Fitzgerald’s novel Fools’ Paradise, co-authored with Trevor Jordan. Fitzgerald is a Bali regular. He and his wife Lyndal Moore prefer the sybaritic delights of Ubud to those offered elsewhere on the island.

The Far Queue No Longer While musing about the products of Australia’s halls of academe, we should record that the government there has just announced it will loosen some visa requirements for international students in an effort to draw more people to Australian universities. It released a report that called for a shake-up of immigration requirements and said it would introduce a more streamlined visa process for overseas students who want to complete a tertiary degree in Australia.

Jalan Tukad Nyali, Gang SMU6 No. 3, Sanur, Bali, Indonesia T (+62) 361 284 410/286554 Office E C/E/I-18 May 11

In a stunning reversal of traditional practice, the authorities say they will not now deal with International students planning to attend Australian universities as if they are all potential illegal over-stayers, regardless of which country they come from. The government will also relax some of the onerous financial requirements for student visas and issue a new work visa for foreign students who graduate in Australia.

Yak On Hector couldn’t make the Yak Awards this year (a previous engagement intervened) but we’re sure it was the usual hoot, as befits affrays organised by super Sophie Digby and her crew. This year’s event was at Tugu Bali. Last year’s was at Cocoon and is remembered by your diarist, who at that time was scribbling for Another Newspaper (The Invisible Times, now edited from Ireland we understand) as the occasion on which he completely missed notable yakker Susie Johnston, who won Yak Woman of the Year 2010. Susie memorably said afterward this must have been because she was wearing the most eye-catching dress of the evening and flashy new specs, and was yakking nineteen to the dozen.

THE HEART OF BALI Helping HIV/AIDS Children at Risk By Michele Cempaka C/E/G-13 July 11

In June 2010, Yayasan Sehati Anak was established with the mission of helping HIV affected children lead happy and healthy lives and develop to their full potential. The foundation strongly believes that these children are equal to other children despite their condition, and they are actively working hard to create a more positive image for HIV+ children. Yayasan Sehati Anak was also developed in order to address the following issues: 1. There are an increasing number of HIV children in Bali since it was first documented in Sanglah Hospital in 2004. Statistics out of Sanglah today report that approximately 150 children have HIV. Of course there are no real statistics on this, because many children who live in remote villages haven’t been tested. 2. Many children who are orphaned or neglected from HIV adults. 3. The stigma and discrimination towards these children, who are infected, exposed or affected by HIV. 4. The importance of documenting all those who are from low socio economic backgrounds who are affected by this disease. Advisor Dr. Bagus Ngurah Putu Arhana, a senior pediatric infectious diseases consultant and also the head of the Department of the Child Health – School of Medicine at Udayana University in Denpasar, has been working hand in hand with Dr. Dewi in the initial phase when rejection and fear of HIV patients was prevalent in the pediatric ward of Sanglah Hospital. Pamela Bathgate is also an Advisor for the yayasan. She helped found Yayasan Sehati Anak after realizing the desperate situation of the forgotten innocent children in Bali. Dr. Dewi Kumara Wati, the Chair for the yayasan, works in Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar. She is dedicated to her work with treating HIV in children. As a doctor, she has a sense of the multiple needs of an individual patient, and feels that there is a psychosocial element to this illness which includes the emotional aspects of the family unit. Families can play a very important role in the well being of their HIV affected child, as their attitudes about the disease can positively or negatively impact him/her. She believes that children can grow free from HIV especially when the adults allow them to do so. In 2005, Dr. Dewi Kumara Wati began treatment for the first pediatric HIV case in Bali and is now one of the National expert panel members of the Indonesian National Guidelines for ‘Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission’ (PMTCT) program. The center in Bali operates out of the Child Health Department of Sanglah Hospital. There are currently 116 children under the age of 12 who are being assisted with testing and medicine. In order for the medicine to retain its

efficacy, doctors ensure that kids take their medicine the same time every day. In addition, children must regularly have their CD4 levels checked. At present, there is only one machine in Bali that can check the CD4 levels of HIV+ patients which up until recently, could only be used by adults. Testing the children involved a less efficient process where lab tests had to be sent to Jakarta where there was a long waiting time and extra cost involved. However recently, that machine has been modified so the children can also be tested here in Bali. Ideally, the yayasan would like to acquire a machine especially for the children in order to speed up the process of testing, diagnosing and treating them. To ensure that the children get their regular checkups and take their medicine, the foundation has a field worker who goes out to the villages to check on them. If any patient hasn’t turned up for their checkup, the medical staff at the hospital will follow up and the field worker will find out why. Another important aspect of these visits is for the field worker to make sure that the children are being nourished and cared for in the best way possible. Milk formula and other nutritious products are provided to the children to ensure that their bodies are strong and healthy enough for the medicines to be able to work properly. The cost for this alone is approximately $2.00 per day per child. “There’s always an ongoing need to provide nutrition for the children. We need approximately 45 million a month for all those we’re currently assisting,” said Pamela Bathgate. Since many of these villages are quite poor and reside in remote areas, it is sometimes difficult for the parent or caregiver to get transport to take them to the center at Sanglah Hospital. At this stage the foundation doesn’t have its own vehicle, but in the future they hope to be able to have a car and driver so that they can pick up these children and bring them to the hospital for their regular medical checkups. As the number of HIV+ children is expected to rise to even more alarming levels in the coming years, Yayasan Sehati Anak is doing all they can to prepare for this influx. They are seeking assistance from donors and businesses that can support their services for HIV + children. For example, IT specialists or help with printing brochures and other promotional materials would be a big help for the foundation.

RUGBY PLAYER DIES SUDDENLY All the participants at the 2011 Bali Rugby Fest were in shock after a prominent Perth player died just hours after telling teammates he was feeling unwell the night before Bali’s annual rugby union tournament. Devastated friends and colleagues hope an autopsy will give them answers as to why Michael Denton, a seemingly fit and healthy 29-year-old, could collapse and die.Mr Denton, the fly-half for Nedlands Rugby Union Football Club’s premier grade team, was found unconscious in his hotel room by a team medic on Friday night who checked on him after he went to bed early. Nedlands Club president Hans Sauer said the medic desperately tried to revive Mr Denton before he was rushed to hospital.He was given the best treatment but never regained consciousness, Mr Sauer said.Originally from Dunedin in New Zealand, Mr Denton had represented WA in the Perth Gold State side and played in the Western Force A side. Mark Bedham, Nedland’s team manager, announced the news to the shocked tournament committee and withdrew his team from the event in a show of respect to both his players and Mr Denton. Mr Bedham went on to explain that Mike was a “rugby fanatic” and that the last he would want was for his team mates to go home “with their tails between their legs”. With that in mind a tentative arrangement was made for a memorial game to be played on the Sunday between the Nedland’s boys and a Barbarians selection. The sad news quickly spread throughout the teams in attendance and black armbands were adorned in honor of a fallen brother. Team managers from all sides met and it was agreed the tournament would go on in Mike’s honour. On Sunday the Nedland’s team assembled at one end of the field for the minutes silence in memory of Mike Denton, just before the memorial match against a Barbarian’s selection. Every player and supporter at the ground took to the field to form a guard of honor that stretched from one end of the field to the other. After the minutes silence it was an emotional scene as the Nedland’s players ran through the tunnel, their grief evident on their faces, clapped on by their fellow rugby community also sharing in their loss. The game itself was free-flowing affair where the greater game of rugby was the winner on the day. Tears were shed, rugby was played and the sponsors products were downed as 450 players from 27 teams became mates. Nick Mesritz, president of Bali Rugby Club and tournament director expressed it for all “On behalf of the Bali Rugby Club and Indonesian Rugby, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and team mates of Mike Denton. May he rest in peace”. 2011 XP PROPERTY BALI RUGBY UNION 10’s After the tragic event of Friday night (see above), the 2011 Xclusive Property Bali Rugby Fest kicked off on Saturday morning with over 450 players participating. After the group games on Saturday, on Sunday it was business end of the weekend with the finals.

We would also like to thank our supporting sponsors Mr Dan McNally of RMA Automotive, Mr Carlo Warella of PT Multi Bintang, Mr Charlie Cappetti of Danone Indonesia and Ms Kareen O’Keefe of Bali SOS International for the medical support.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Today’s Wayang Kulit Today’s wayang kulit performances are still based on the ways of the ancients, but with many modifications to suit modernity. In our frenetic, multi-tasking world, few have seven spare hours to spend watching puppets in the late evening. To adapt to this situation, a three-and-a-half hour show is the longest you’ll see, with only the best practitioners captivating the audience’s attention for this long. There have been many ingenious new puppets created over only the last few decades: Tantri, with an Aesop fables animal-style theme is a notable innovation which now a number of puppeteers perform, particularly in Sukawati. The 3-D stick puppets, known as wayang golek in Java, have strangely enough not taken on; however, I’ve witnessed a admirable attempt by an art-school graduate at creating his own Balinese version around 2002. For the most part, Balinese wayang of the 21st century seems to eagerly imitate the modifications of the Javanese shows: bigger orchestras, more singers, louder sound systems, modern lighting, fancy decorations and costumes. Today, some puppeteers no longer use the oil lamp in preference for an electric one, as well as additional coloured lights, spots and strobes. There are no night performances that don’t use sound systems: a mike and a (normally feeding-back with treble on full) speaker system is all part of the kit. Large gamelan orchestras with more grunt and power, playing in many different scales are the modern preference. Traditional ones, such as gender wayang and suling gambuh, are used occasionally, but contemporary favourites are semarandhana, semar pegulingan, and angklung. Conservatives go white in horror when the choice is selonding or the bamboo joged, but what really is more the case is whether it suits the story-telling atmosphere or not. Now an orchestra is considered ‘complete’ if it features female singers (sindhen), but this is an adaptation from our neighbouring Java. More radical brainwaves include multiple puppeteers zooming back and forth on skateboards; sampled sound effects; smoke machines; and techno strobes—all this promises more explosive, adventure-sport style shows in the future! Vaughan Hatch has immersed himself with Balinese culture, living with locals in Bali since 1997. He speaks fluent Indonesian and Balinese, and is unashamedly addicted to playing gamelan. A linguistic, archaeology and publishing graduate, he works for indOKiwi ‘linguistic and cultural solutions’ in Sanur. Email him on or call (0361) 464201 for further queries.

Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer

More Gadgets Galore. In this issue I have an iPad accessory; some awesome wireless headphones; a beautiful window thermometer with memory; a great wireless Bluetooth speaker; a space savings kitchen scale with an iPod holder and speaker; a camera with its own projector; and a combo snorkeling facemask with a built in camera. Enjoy.

Polaroid’s purse-sized printer connects to phones wirelessly via Bluetooth — and to cameras and PCs via USB cable — enabling image printing on the fly. The GL10 uses special packets of paper embedded with cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals that are activated by heat. The paper will come in packets of 10 sheets, and looks impressive. US$150

iPad Bluetooth Keyboard Case

Kitchen scale with iPod dock and speaker

In use, the iPad rests on a built in stand in a horizontal orientation which makes the whole package look and work almost like a netbook. The keyboard itself has a silicone cover that will resist the occasional caffeinated spillage of your choice and provides noticeable tactile feedback. In other words, you’ll feel like you are typing again instead of tapping. The case feels good when you’re carrying it around, but it isn’t so hefty that you notice it. In fact, loaded up with an iPad the whole weighs just 2.75lbs, which is less than the new 13” MacBook Air. Charges over USB. Cable included. Attractive black synthetic leather iPad case with magnetic flap includes fully integrated Bluetooth keyboard.

Today’s piece of superficial silliness is a kitchen scale, with a built-in iPod dock. That’s right. A precision kitchen workhorse, one of a serious cook’s most important gadgets, has been “improved” by adding a dock and speaker. The dock is up front, where you can easily touch screens or click-wheels with greasy fingers, and the speaker is underneath the glass weighing platform, ready to shake some bass as you try to delicately measure ingredients in 1 gram (0.04 ounces) increments (up to 5 kg or 0.0055 short tons). Your first concern is addressed: The dock comes with a tight-fitting cover plate to seal it against liquids and mess.

Nom de plume Occasional Articles From Our Readers

Begging letters. Could you? Would you? I am sure that like me you have all received some form of begging letter over the years. “Could you help my dying grandmother...” and “Would you donate a few quid....” Hopefully you had the common sense to bin them without any qualms. However when you read this I hope you won’t “bin” it and will donate just 5 minutes of your time to help 540,000 UK expats around the world. Those 540,000 are UK State Pensioners that live in Countries where their UK pension is frozen as it is here in Indonesia. Those that have been living overseas for 25 to 30 years are now receiving less than 50% of what their counterparts are receiving in the UK! All have made the same rate of contributions throughout their working life as those pensioners in the UK, and some other countries getting the full indexed state pension. An e-petition on the frozen pensions issue, sponsored by the International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP), has just been successfully posted on the UK Government’s DirectGov website. It reads as follows: END THE UNFAIR FROZEN OVERSEAS PENSION POLICY Under regulation 3 of the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Regulations British pensioners who retire to any one of over 120 countries, mainly in the Commonwealth, have their rightful state pension frozen. Meanwhile, those who retire to other countries have their pension uprated annually, just as though they never left the UK. This discriminatory policy currently impacts on the lives of over half a million British pensioners and curtails the freedom of choice of all British pensioners in retirement. We call for this Government to heed the plea of the International Consortium of British Pensioners to repeal this Regulation. 100,000 signatures are required so that this topic can be considered for debate in the House of Commons. Your cooperation is essential if we are to achieve that goal. If you are a UK pensioner (or soon to be one) you will of course benefit if we can succeed in getting the frozen pension rules revoked and we can get the full indexed linked pension we have all paid for. So please take the time to sign the petition on the epetitions. web site. Just follow the information below.Use the following link which will take you directly to the petition. (If you are concerned that this is a scam or phishig please use your browser“search” system to go to that government web site and then follow the instructions below.) (hold down ctrl key if you do not go to the site). Click on the “Sign this petition” button to take you to the signing page. Complete all of the details requested on the signing page. Make sure your email address is accurate as you will be sent

a confirmation email as part of the process - more on this below. Where they ask “British citizen or UK resident” the answer should be “Yes”; they are asking you whether you are one or the other, or perhaps both. Only answer “No” if you are neither one nor the other. (the Government’s website http://epetition. in its terms and conditions does say that you must be either a British citizen or resident of the UK to sign a petition.) In the “Country” box, United Kingdom is the default country click on the down arrow for the full list of countries. Select the one that applies to you. NOTE: If you live outside the UK you’ll probably see a message that your postal code is not recognized. This will not matter once you’ve selected your country of residence.

C/G/G-7 Sept. 11

When you have completed the details move towards the bottom of the page where you will find a “Captcha box” where you have to read two words and then type them into a box, one of which is usually difficult to read. Don’t worry if you get it wrong the first time; if you do they will provide you with two more words to try again. When you have completed all of the above, click the box next to “I agree to the Terms & Conditions”, then click on the box “Sign this e-petition”. You will receive a confirmation email, usually within minutes unless the system is very busy, in which case be patient. Click on the link provided in that email and only then will your signature be registered. Some people found that the confirmation process could not be completed. This may be have been caused by a “pop up blocker” on your computer, (such as ActiveX). You may therefore need to allow “pop ups” whilst completing the signing in. (In my case I had to hold down the CTRL key whilst clicking on the confirm e-mail). One final note. Additional votes will not be accepted from the same email address. If you are a couple that shares one email address feel free to enter both names on the name box but it will only register as one vote. We assume this is part of the security measure to stop people adding fictitious names. On behalf, of the 540,000 “frozen” British pensioners around the world, I sincerely thank you for reading this article and especially for signing the petition. They will be eternally grateful for you help in getting what they have duly paid in for. Please pass this on to all your family and friends, especially in the UK, and persuade them to sign up.

TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

of eyewitness accounts for historians of the period, anyone who wants to understand how the nation was transformed into a modern industrial society, as well as much useful advice on how to handle business situations.

The writer also, in conditions that seem unimaginable today, was instrumental in introducing Indonesia’s first PAL color TV system, helped plan the construction of Bali’s first international airport in Tuban and Radio Republik Indonesia’s first 100-kilowatt radio short wave station in the Puncak. This transmitter, the first to broadcast the Voice of Indonesia to the world, was used to disseminate anti-Malaysia propaganda. A Magic Gecko chronicles the remarkable professional and personal experiences of a German electrical engineer who lived for 18 action-packed years in Indonesia from the late Sukarno period through to the early years of Suharto’s New Order government, the very years (1963-1981) in which the country was wrenched kicking and screaming into the 20th century. From the book’s very first pages this 78-year-old author’s reminisces capture the reader’s imagination, if only for his voracious curiosity. In the days when travel by air was tortuous and lengthy, Horst Henry Geerken’s outward bound sea voyage to Indonesia from Europe contains wonderful descriptions of the huge travel trunk that he inherited from his grandfather and his impressions of port calls in Naples, Aden and Ceylon in the 1960s. Geerken was an avid amateur radio enthusiast, spent time as an exchange student in Turkey, studied the new but fast developing field of telecommunications engineering, took a post-graduate course in America, worked for the US government, then accepted a job offered by the German firm AGE Telefunken to represent the company’s interests as a “Resident Engineer” in Indonesia. Arriving in 1963 in Jakarta in the middle of the political upheavals following the coup that overthrew Sukarno, it was a difficult and dangerous period even for non-Indonesians residents. His first sensations were the smell of clove cigarettes in the air, the absence of street lighting, of water buffalo grazing on a grassy strip down the center of Jl. Thamrin, becak everywhere on the streets, restaurant employees waving fans over you while you ate, the Harmonie Club and Hotel des Indies were still standing and the Tugu Monument was being built. Telecommunications was an unchartered and virtually undeveloped field in Indonesia at the time. An engineer himself, Sukarno was a Germanophile and was infatuated with Germany technology. The author met the charismatic first president when he and other German chief engineers were summoned to Sukarno’s private residence in Tampaksiring in Bali. So detailed are this writer’s observations, recreations of conversations, descriptions of events and minutiae about Indonesian customs, manners, traffic etiquette, use of acronyms, eating habits, the concept of losing face, attitude towards wealth and weather – everything – Geerken must have been a diarist of colossal diligence. His book is a trove

Selling Glass Beads + Payet + Sequins + Crystal Components In many colors & sizes



A Magic Gecko by Horst Henry Geerken

He sang German soldiers songs with Sukarno, slept in DDT-laced hotel rooms, traded contraband in the black market in the era of galloping inflation, embarked on a week-long road trip to Bali over roads with holes as big as bathtubs, saw the heads of massacred villages stuck on the top of bamboo fence poles, lived on quiet lonely Kuta Beach where he almost drowned, toured the massive devastation wrought by the eruption of G. Agung, took a test drive along the coast of Brunei in the Sultan’s new12-cylinder Jaguar.


Geerken is unflaggingly proud of all that German soldiers, scientists, writers, diplomats, engineers and shipbuilders have contributed to Indonesia from ancient times up to building the foundations of the modern Indonesia state. He devotes whole chapters to the German painter and musician Walter Spies and to the destruction of the German East-Asia Squadron off Java in World War I. On the other hand, he shows no quarter towards his fellow northern Europeans, the Dutch, whom he criticizes as arrogant, selfish and cruel in their treatment of the Indonesian people. The book is much more than its subtitle implies. It is not just about the CIA’s role behind the fall of Sukarno. There are many sad, provocative, arcane, miraculous and eye-opening stories, from a gripping account of receiving a distress signal from the King of Sikkim and the life of the woman’s emancipationist R. A. Kartini, to the cunning methods used by Indonesian thieves to rob resident foreigners and the career of painter Raden Saleh, Indonesia’s first modern painter. The subtitle may be a marketing strategy, hinting at revealing the inside story about the spy agency’s plot against Sukarno who was so deeply distrusted by the Western anti-communist powers. The book is more a memoir of a bygone era than it is a political tell-all. Perhaps a more apt subtitle would’ve been “My 18 Years in Insulinde,”the latter a venerable name for the archipelago which Geerken is especially fond of. Although it has a wealth of accurate and graphic historical details, the book is not without inaccuracies. The author repeats the usual error of characterizing Indonesia as the largest Muslim country in the world and it being occupied for 350 years by Holland (only Jakarta was occupied that long). Borobudur is not “a few” kilometers from Yogya, the Bali Tiger was not shot out “100 years ago,” the republic was not “newly independent” in 1963 (it had been free for 13 years); Surabaya was not “raised to its foundations” by British bombing in 1945. But this is nitpicking. Steeped in the history of the times, with a palpable sense for texture, sounds, sights, atmosphere and smells, A Magic Gecko takes an honored place as one of the most informative and intelligent memoirs of the tumultuous years in Indonesia’s modern history as seen from the perspective of a sophisticated European. The highly readable and entertaining work is de rigueur reading for Germans working in Indonesia or visiting the country for any length of time. Geerken initially had little desire to publish his extensive journals, but at his wife’s urging a German edition was published in 2009 and became a bestseller. This first English edition is being officially launched at the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival on Sunday, October 9th at 5 pm at the Lamak Restaurant in Ubud. A Magic Gecko: The role of the CIA Behind the Fall of Sukarno by Horst Henry Geerken (, Kompas 2011, ISBN 978-3-8391-5248-5, paperback, 392 pages, glossary, name and subject indexes, bibliography.

BA Feature


Those Amazing Teas of Indonesia Part 1 Indonesia produces some amazing teas. The natural humidity and the composition of the volcanic, mineral rich soil combine ideally to produce black and green teas that are categorized by floral tones, light flavor and pleasant aromas. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, Indonesia is the 7th largest producer of export grade tea in the world, with over 200,000 metric tons of black and green teas produced in 2010. Most of Indonesia’s tea production is black tea and about 80% is exported. Indonesia also produces a high quality Oolong tea. Indonesian teas are light and flavorful and most are blended. They are comparable to a high altitude Ceylon tea. Tea, or teh in Bahasa Indonesia, has been popular in Indonesia for more than 300 years. The Dutch colonials founded the tea trade in 1684. They established large tea plantations in the western highlands of Java and in Sumatra where volcanic soil and tropical climate are highly conducive to the growing of fine quality teas. Most of the tea production went into severe decline under the Japanese occupation during WW II and the industry did not fully recover until the 1980s. With much effort and investment, Indonesia’s tea industry was revived and tea exports began to make their presence felt in the tea markets abroad. Since then, constant improvement and modernization of tea production and replanting of old estates have continued to this day. Tea is now grown all over Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi. A quick look in the local supermarkets will attest to the popularity of Indonesian teas. Many packages of locally grown black and green teas, and herbal teas like Rosella and spicy ginger teas line the shelves. Also quite popular are tea based soft drinks. The ubiquitous glass bottled sweet teas and various brands of fruit flavored teas like lemon, blueberry and apple, packaged in small individual serving cartons, are easily found in the markets, shops or street kiosks. A Primer on Teas Much of the world’s tea is grown in mountainous areas, about 1000 – 2000 meters above sea level, situated between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn in more than 25 listed producer countries, resulting in thousands of flavorful variations. Like wines, each tea takes its name from the district in which it is grown, and each district is known for producing tea with unique flavor and character. The major tea-producing countries include China, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania and Argentina.

There are more than 1500 different teas grown around the world. According to the Tea Association of America, there are just four varieties of tea: black, green, Oolong and white, and they all come from the same plant, a warm-weather evergreen named Camellia sinensis. What distinguishes each category is the method used to process the tea leaves - steamed, fermented (oxidized), dried, or bruised – which gives the tea its special characteristics such as color and taste. Black tea is oxidized for up to 4 hours and Oolong teas are oxidized for 2-3 hours. Green & white teas are not oxidized at all and they most closely resemble the look and chemical composition of the fresh tealeaf. Black tea is the most commonly consumed tea in the world, amounting to 80% of consumption. It has been fully oxidized or fermented and yields a hearty-flavored, amber brew. Some of the popular black teas are blends such as Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Darjeeling and Orange Pekoe. Black tea requires more processing than green or Oolong teas. After plucking, the leaves are laid out to dry, then heated and rolled to bring out their natural oils and enzymes which give tea its wonderful flavor. Next, the leaves are left to ferment for a period of time depending on the desired taste of the final product. When that point is reached, the leaves are heat blasted to stop the fermenting process. One of the most famous of Chinese black teas is Keemun, a fine grade of mellow black tea with a dark amber color and a subtle and complex nature. Other noteworthy black teas are Lapsang Soucho, also a fine grade China black tea with a distinctive smoky flavor which results from a unique drying process. Assam is black tea grown in northeast India and has a strong, full body with rich robust flavor. It is often blended because of its overpowering tannic taste. Green tea skips the oxidizing step and most resembles the original green leaf. It has a more delicate taste and is light green/ golden in color. Green tea is a staple in the Orient but is gaining popularity worldwide, due in part, to recent scientific studies linking green tea drinking with reduced cancer risk. Currently, green tea makes up only ten percent of the world’s produced tea. The

famous Japanese tea service, which uses green tea, is an art form. Oolong tea is partly oxidized and is midway between black and green tea in color, strength and taste. It is an elegant, mellow tea originally grown in the Fukien province of China. Today, the highest grade Oolongs are Formosa Oolongs, grown in Taiwan. A cross between green and black teas, it is partially fermented to achieve a delicious fruity taste that makes milk, lemon, and sugar unthinkable. It is perfect for afternoon tea served with cucumber sandwiches and pastries. Oolong tea contains more tannin and antioxidants than green tea. Scientists believe tannin may account for the lower risk of cancer in tea drinkers. Other health benefits include reduced heart disease, better digestion and lowered cholesterol. The term Oolong is of Chinese origin and means Black Dragon. White teas are the most delicate of all teas; the finest varieties are appreciated by tea connoisseurs for their unmatched subtlety, complexity and natural sweetness. During the plucking, great care has to be given to the selection of the leaves. Usually only the youngest leaves, still with short silver-colored (white) hair or down are used. White tea is the least processed of all teas. The absence of withering, rolling and oxidation leaves the appearance of the leaves essentially unaltered. When infused, white tea has a pale yellow cup color and a delicate, fresh flavor. Availability is limited and cost is high as a result of the limitations of both the plucking standard and its geographical availability. Blends. To attain an infinite variety of tastes, most teas are blended. Sometimes a blend can contain a mixture of more than 20 different teas from different origins, combined to achieve a certain flavor. For example, English Breakfast tea traditionally was a blend of China Keemun teas only, but the blend now includes Ceylon and India teas as well. Darjeeling is a b l e n d o f Himalayan teas with a flowery bouquet and Orange Pekoe is a blend of Ceylon Earl Grey teas. Other blends are scented or flavored with fruit, flowers, herbs or spices using one of the four major types of tea as a base. For instance, jasmine tea is produced by combining jasmine flowers with either black or green tea. A flavored tea such as Earl Grey is mainly the combination of bergamot oil and a strong black tea. And the popular Chai is usually blended by combining strong black tea with milk or cream and spices such as ginger, cloves, cinnamon or cardamom.

and Chinese Keemun. When brewed, this tea will yield a dark and oily cup of tea. The taste is smooth and sweet with some spicy undertones. Enjoy with or without sugar. Highlights in the History of Tea • The story of tea began in ancient China over 5,000 years ago. According to legend, Emperor Shen Nung was visiting a distant region of his realm. On the road, he stopped to rest and the servants boiled water for the emperor to drink. Leaves from a nearby bush fell into the boiling water, and because the beverage was so fragrant, the emperor decided to try it. He was so delighted by this infusion that he instantly declared it refreshing and medicinal. • The first reliable reference to tea is in an ancient Chinese dictionary from the year 50 AD. Described primarily as a medicinal beverage, tea was prepared by boiling raw green leaves in kettles with water. • In 780 AD tea was important enough to be taxed. The demand for tea had spread throughout the outer regions of China and to the countries beyond the borders such as Tibet and among nomadic tribes such as the Turks, Tatars and Mongols. That same year, a ten volume work dedicated exclusively to tea, entitled Ch’a Ching (The Classic of Tea), was written by Chinese Taoist philosopher Lu Yu. • In 1191 AD a Japanese Zen Buddhist monk named Eisai, was traveling back to Japan after studying on the mainland. He took some seeds back to Japan and started tea cultivation in his own garden. • The Dutch brought tea into Europe as early as 1610 AD. From there, tea traveled to North America and Indonesia where the Dutch colonials founded the tea trade in 1684. By the 1700s, tea drinking was firmly established in Europe. In 1706 a London tea merchant named Thomas Twining began to concentrate primarily on serving fine tea rather than coffee in his coffee house, and the modern tearoom was born. Unlike the male dominated coffee houses, these new tea houses opened their doors to both genders and subsequently became a favorite social gathering place for the ladies. • In 1767 the British Government put a tax on the tea imported by American colonists. Protesting this “taxation without representation,” the colonists decided to stop buying tea and refused to allow tea ships to be unloaded. One December night in 1773 several colonists boarded British ships in Boston Harbor and threw more than 300 chests of tea into the sea. This famous Boston Tea Party, in protest of the British tea tax, was said to be one of the acts leading to the Revolutionary War. • Anna, Duchess of Bedford, is credited with creating Afternoon Tea in 1840, when she began taking tea with a

Herbal teas such as chamomile, mint, etc. do not come from Camellia sinensis, and are not really teas at all but are an infusion of leaves, roots, bark, seeds or flowers from other types of plants. They are properly called tisanes or infusions. They lack many of the unique characteristics of traditional teas and have characteristics all their own with potential health benefits to match. Familiar herbal teas include chamomile, mint, rosella, the trendy Rooibos or bush tea, etc. Tea Traditions in Indonesia Hot tea is readily sold in local warungs and kiosks, and, in some places, by stationary or wandering tea sellers. In Java this seems to be more of a tradition than in Bali. There you can easily spot tea sellers in local markets, along stalls lining the main streets, and in the typical Indonesian outdoor food courts. The tea is served hot from big kettles. Sometimes the tea leaves are added to the kettle, sometimes they are put in a glass and hot water is poured in the glass. In Java, a popular whole leaf tea is the Blontea Tehpokil, originating in Solo. It is a blend of black teas from the districts of Pekalongan and Wonosobo in the Dieng mountains. Blontea or Tehpokil has dark color with a bitter taste and a distinct fragrant smell. The invention of this tea originally came from the tradition of people in Solo who like to mix tea variants in order to make pokil tea, a vernacular term meaning creation. There are many small tea sellers in Solo called “angkringan” who concoct their own formula of tea by mixing many tea variants in order to get the best and unique taste of tea. One of the more popular is a combination of bitter and fragrant black teas from Central Java

Local News Yet Another Case of Prison Privilege in Indonesia With illegal behavior rampant at the country’s jails, reports that a high-profile graft convict hid Rp. 4 billion ($460,000) in cash while in jail came as no surprise on Wednesday (14/9). “Drugs, hand-phones, BlackBerries and even sex workers can get inside prisons. What’s so difficult about getting Rp. 4 billion in, too?” asked Eva Kusuma Sundari, an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) lawmaker and member of House of Representatives Commission III, which oversees legal affairs. Eva added that bribing officers at prisons was a common practice, and that a complete overhaul of the nation’s penal system would be needed to eradicate deep-seated corruption. Gayus Hamonangan Tambunan became a household name last year when it was revealed the former taxman bribed his way out of embezzlement charges at the Tangerang District Court. With his Rp 100 billion in cash, bullion and jewelry, Gayus was also able to bribe prison wardens into allowing him to leave his jail cell, including to travel overseas. Gayus, who was sentenced to 12 years, was fleeced by Muntaha at the Cipinang State Penitentiary in East Jakarta, an official at the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights said on Wednesday on the condition of anonymity. Muntaha also allegedly took money from two other inmates. Eva expressed alarm that Gayus was able to access such a large amounts of money as his assets had been frozen. “You can imagine the magnitude of this case,” she said. Justice and Human Rights Minister Patrialis Akbar said on

Wednesday that there was no regulation banning inmates from bringing money from outside. He also said it would be difficult to enforce any such rule if it came into existence. In Gayus’ case, Patrialis said he believed the graft convict had brought the money into prison in several installments. “He brought some one day, then the next day, then the next week,” he said, adding that Gayus was reported to have Singaporean dollars in his cell. Patrialis said it was difficult to ensure no money entered the jail because of the large number of prisoners and their visitors. “Should we have gone as far as examining his underwear?” Patrialis said, commenting on how hard it was to control people and prevent them from bringing in things from outside. The minister admitted he had received reports that Gayus had been defrauded by a fellow prisoner who said he could multiply money. Gayus gave about Rp. 4 billion to the fellow prisoner, Patrialis said, without identifying Muntaha. For student Rai Carolina, Gayus’ latest case was a perfect example of the corruption in the Indonesian justice system. “He’s in jail, where access to the outside world should have been cut off, yet he managed to get his wife pregnant and stash a lot of cash. How did that happen? Doesn’t anyone pay attention to him?” she asked. Bank employee Jarnawi said he suspected some of the wardens knew Gayus was bringing cash into the prison. “I suspect Gayus dared to take his money into the prison because he was promised protection,” Jarnawi Said (September 14th 2011)

Indonesia Church Bomb Tie to Bali Terror Group Indonesian church suicide bomber Achmad Yosepa Hayat is the most recent link in a terrorist lineage extending back to Bali 2001 and the master bomb-maker Azahari Husin. Confirming yesterday that it was Hayat, born Pino Damayanto, who blew himself up on the steps of the Bethel Gospel Church in Solo, central Java, on Sunday morning, police spokesman Anton Bachrul Alam said the 30-year-old fanatic had learned his trade from Sigit Qordhowi. Both Hayat and Sigit, who was gunned down on May 14 by counter-terrorism police, were suspects in organizing the April 15 suicide bombing of the Cirebon city police’s mosque by Muhammad Syarif. Syarif, like the Solo bomber, managed to kill only himself at the scene, though one of Sunday’s victims, a mother in her 40s, is in critical condition with a piece of shrapnel driven into her brain. Sigit had learned bomb-making from Heri Sigu Samboja, a.k.a. Soghir, who helped assemble the huge bomb that killed 11 Indonesians outside the Australian embassy on September 9, 2004. Soghir was schooled in turn by Azahari, a Malaysian who studied at Adelaide University before gaining his doctorate in Britain and then literally writing the book on Southeast Asian terror bombs. Azahari was responsible for Jemaah Islamiyah’s bomb-making manual, blueprint for the 2001 Bali bombs, which killed 201 people, including 88 Australians. Azahari planned the Jakarta embassy blast and was involved in the 2003 JW Marriott Hotel bombing and finally Bali 2005, a month before he was ambushed and killed by Indonesia’s counter-terrorism squad, Densus 88. Soghir is one of the few former JI bombers to have survived Densus 88’s ruthless interception operations in recent years. Since April he has been serving a second jail term for terrorism offences - eight years for his role in the 2009-10 Aceh terrorist training camp.

An International Crisis Group study by Dr Sidney Jones, published just after the Cirebon incident, showed Soghir’s key role in the recent strategic transition from JI-style, mass-casualty attacks focused on foreigners to grass-roots operations against domestic targets, particularly police and government officials. Soghir, whose father was an Afghanistan mujaheddin in the 1980s, has now been identified giving bomb-making training to several of the new “individual jihad” groups. “Every time we’ve seen one of these smaller networks emerge, there have been at least one or two members with links to older networks,” Dr Jones told AFP yesterday. Hayat was unemployed, living with his parents, wife and four-year-old daughter in a Cirebon village until he went on the run following the mosque bombing. Like Syarif, he had joined terrorist cleric Abu Bakar Bashir’s “above-ground” organization Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid. Both had been linked by Cirebon police to rowdy street demonstrations and an attack on a liquor store. Major General Anton said yesterday Hayat had traveled alone to Solo, also the locale of Bashir’s al-Mukmin boarding school, to detonate his belt-bomb as worshippers emerged from the church. However, police think the “brain” behind the bombing was one of the four other Cirebon suspects who are still on the run. Despite Monday’s discovery of bombs outside two Ambon churches police had not found evidence linking the recent resurgence of communal violence in the Maluku Islands with Solo. It appears, however, that eight of the Cirebon group’s nine missing pipe bombs are still out there. The ninth was gutted to make Hayat’s explosive belt. “He wanted to die as a martyr,” said Major General Anton. (September 28th 2011)

11 Dead as Boat Sinks off Bali Indonesian police say a wooden boat carrying dozens of Balinese musicians has sunk in high waves, killing 11 people on Tuesday (20/9). Rescuers are scouring the waters for 14 others still missing, including the captain. Col. Agus Doeta Soepranggono says members of a traditional percussion troupe were heading from Bali to the nearby island of Nusa Penida to perform at a cremation ceremony when their vessel capsized a half-hour into the journey. Accidents at sea are common in Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago nation with more than 17,000 islands, in part because of overcrowding and poor safety standards. (September 21st 2011) Indonesia Helicopter Crash Kills Two - Sumbawa A helicopter chartered by US giant Newmont Mining has crashed in central Indonesia killing two people, a rescue official says. The Bell 412 with two people on board including the pilot went missing on Sunday (25/9). A rescue team located the wreckage on Monday (26/9) in a valley on the island of Sumbawa in West Nusa Tenggara province. “The pilot and one passenger were found dead,” provincial search and rescue chief Ida Bagus Gde Budisma told AFP. The helicopter, chartered from Air Fast Indonesia by Newmont Mining’s local unit, lost contact two minutes after it took off from the company’s mine site, heading for basecamp in Sumbawa district. An Australian and a Slovak pilot were killed early this month when their small Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft, which was carrying fuel and food to a remote area in Papua province, went down. (September 26th 2011) Graffiti in Bali an Increasing Problem Graffiti in Denpasar and surrounding suburbs is an everincreasing problem for local council authorities according to Head of the Department of Public Relations Dewa Gede Rai of Denpasar. No building seemed to be immune to the unsightly spray painted logos and signatures that can be seen in practically every street, he said. A spokesman for the Department of Hygiene and Gardening (DKP) Denpasar said it was extremely difficult to keep on top of this particular form of vandalism as no budget had been allocated for the cleaning of public buildings that had been defaced by spray painters. According to the Head Office of Street Patrol Squads (Satpol Tramtib) Nick Nata, the perpetrators of graffiti were very difficult to apprehend as they usually operated in the very early hours of the morning in quiet streets. He said that his teams would continue to reconnaissance with the police on the matter however the problem would not be easy to solve. (September 15th 2011) Orangutans ‘Allowed to Smoke in Indonesian Zoos’ An activist said Saturday that orangutans in many of Indonesia’s zoos were allowed to smoke as visitors could freely toss cigarettes to them without proper monitoring. “Cigarettes are bad for orangutans’ health. We demand the zoos closely monitor the orangutans,” Centre for Orangutan Protection campaigner Hardi Baktiantoro told AFP. “Orangutans can also smoke cigarettes because they tend to imitate human behaviour,” he said. Baktiantoro said the apes were able to receive any food or cigarettes thrown to them as there were no barriers between them and zoo visitors. In Malaysia, an orangutan named Shirley that amused visitors by smoking cigarette butts thrown into her cage was being forced to go cold turkey after authorities seized the great ape from a state-run zoo last week. (September 17th 2011) Bali to Allocate 200 tons of Rice to Anticipate Drought The Bali provincial administration plans to allocate 200 tons of rice to anticipate a food shortage as a result of drought and other natural disasters this year, a spokesman said. “If harvest fails and food difficulty happens we will form a rice buffer stock as an anticipatory measure,” Head of the Bali Provincial Social Service Office Ketut Susrama said here on Sunday (18/9). “We are still monitoring the impact of drought and have yet to receive a report about food difficulty,” he said. If any of the community members need rice assistance the office would distribute rice from the buffer stock, he said. Each of the residents facing food difficulty would receive rice assistance of 400 grams a day. Head of the Karangasem District Social Service Office I Made Sosiawan said Seraya in Karangasem subdistrict and Bunutan in Abang subdistrict were the most vulnerable areas and had high risk of food shortage due to drought.

Australian Activist Tirana Hassan Arrested in Indonesia A South Australian woman working for Human Rights Watch in Indonesia has been arrested while researching religious intolerance. Tirana Hassan, from Adelaide, was arrested and then interrogated by police for nine hours along with fellow Human Rights Watch activist Andreas Harsono. They were arrested in Sampang in East Java where they had been conducting interviews with local Shia Muslims, a minority in Indonesia who along with the Ahmadiyah sect have been facing growing persecution and acts of violence. They were then taken to Sampang Police headquarters and interrogated before being released without charge. Mr. Harsono said that Ms Hassan was likely to be deported. He said the authorities claimed Ms Hassan violated her visa conditions because she did not have permission to conduct research while in Indonesia. (September 21st 2011) HIV can Infect 300 Infants Annually - Bali The National Aids Commission (KPA) has predicted that about 300 infants could be infected with HIV each year in Bali if preventive measures are not taken. Coordinator of KPA’s Working Group for Bali Prof Mangku Karmaya made the statement on the sidelines of an AIDS campaign: “Bankers Go Surf, Stop AIDS.” “But this figure could be reduced if all people are willing to take active part in preventing the infection of the disease to the next generation,” he said. He said that one of the ways to prevent the spread of the disease was to promote the prevention program of Preventing Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) among expecting mothers. The program is aimed at providing awareness for expecting mothers who have husbands who engage in risky behavior so that they can receive voluntary counseling and testing (VCT).“The VCT program could be implemented in all public hospitals in Bali. All HIV testing is free of charge,” Mangku Karmaya said. (September 20th 2011) NU Leader calls for Closure of Websites Spreading Radicalism An Islamic leader has called on the government to close down internet sites that spread radicalism so as to eliminate a source of inspiration for potential terrorists. “They must not only block porn sites but also sites that encourage radicalism, fundamentalism. The two kinds of sites pose equal dangers,” said KH Said Aqil Siroj, general chairman of one of Indonesia’s largest Islamic organizations, Nahdlatul Ulama, here on Tuesday (27/9). He said one of the reasons why terrorism persisted in the country was the fact that radical teachings continued being spread freely. “After their ideology has been radicalized, they are only a step away from engaging in radical actions. The freedom in the current reform era had been used optimally by radical groups to spread the radical ideology they believe in.” he said. He went on to say that it was important for the moderate groups to step up their efforts to enlighten the people on peaceful Islam. “It is indeed difficult to do it for those who have already become militants but it can be a preventive effort for those who have not yet been affected by radical doctrine,” he said. He said Nahdlatul Ulama supports stronger legislation against terrorism to anticipate terrorist actions. The law, he said, must give the police authority to summon and examine those suspected of having links with terrorism. Aqil said the police already knew the people or groups that were connected with terrorism but could not do much until they actually committed a criminal offense. “The existing law is not strong enough and therefore security agencies became hesitant to act, afraid of later being accused of violating human rights. As a result, they wait until bombs explode,” he said. (September 27th 2011)

Villagers’ Clash in Klungkung, Bali - One Dead, Dozens Injured National Police Chief General Timur Pradopo said that police were conducting a thorough investigation following the recent clash between residents of two Bali villages and act based on existing rules against anyone who had broken the law in the incident. The clash occurred between residents of Budaga and Kemoning villages in Semarapura, Klungkung, Bali on Saturday (17/9) following a dispute over the use of two temples. The incident claimed one life and caused injuries to tens of people. “People should be aware that if there is a legal problem it should be settled according to the law,” Timur said when met at the Presidential Palace complex here on Monday (19/9). The Indonesian Police Chief said a meeting had been held with local community leaders to discuss the incident. All parties had agreed to seek a peaceful solution to the problem. He said local authorities would make efforts to always establish good communication with the parties involved in similar disputes, so that similar incidents will not occur again. Deputy Police Chief Commissioner I Gde Suwahyu of the Semarapura police department said that officers had confiscated swords, crowbars, spikes and molotov cocktails that were used by the conflicting parties. The man killed in the incident was a villager named Ketut Ariaka (56). Meanwhile, Bali Governor I Made Mangku Pastika said he believed provocateurs had been behind that clash. The former Bali police chief also regretted the incident, saying that the clash was a tragedy. “Why were these people so stupid to fight and hurt each over a temple,” he said. (September 19th 2011) Jakarta Airport Customs Tighten Luggage Checks Following 2 Big Meth Hauls by Brit’s Customs officials at Jakarta`s Soekarno-Hatta airport have tightened luggage checks following the arrest of a British national for attempting to smuggle in 6.5 kilograms of methamphetamine recently. “Checks on the luggage of passengers have been tightened in anticipation of drug smuggling attempts,” head of the investigation and enforcement section of the airport’s customs office, Gatot Sugeng Wibowo, said here on Saturday (17/9). A British national was arrested recently at the country’s biggest airport attempting to smuggle 6.5 kilograms of methamphetamine worth at market value Rp13 billion kept in a compartment specially designed for hiding the illegal goods on the inner side of his bag. The suspect, Gareth DC (35), said he was only a courier and had done it because he was badly in need of money. He came to Jakarta aboard Turkei Airways Flight Number TK-066 from Manchester through Istambul, Turkey. He said he would only receive US$1,000 for his service and the money would also be used to pay hotel rooms, tickets and accommodation while in Indonesia. Gareth is threatened to 15 years in jail if later he is proven violating Law Number 35 of 2009 on narcotics and a fine of up to Rp. 10 billion. A Manchester dad could be facing the death penalty after being arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling in Indonesia. Jack Walker, 53, is being held in jail after being stopped at the airport in the capital Jakarta. It is understood the father of two - who is well known for taking meat around pubs near his home in Wythenshawe - was arrested as he was about to board a flight back to the UK. Officials allegedly found a substantial amount of methamphetamine - commonly known as crystal meth or ‘ice’. It is believed the drug was found in a concealed compartment of a suitcase. Mr. Walker, who is a diabetic, collapsed after he was stopped. A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are aware of the arrest of a British national at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Indonesia. Consular assistance is being offered.” (September 17th 2011)

AP I intends to convert the facilities in these five airports into world-class transport hubs, featuring hotels and shopping centers, by 2013.

(September 15th 2011) Indonesia Signs plan to Curb Greenhouse Gas Pollution Indonesia has adopted a sweeping action plan to curb greenhouse gas emissions from industry, forestry and agriculture as part of a global fight against climate change, the government said on Monday (26/9). The program enshrines a pledge first announced by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono two years ago to curb emissions growth by 26 percent from projected levels by 2020 or up to 41 percent with cash and other support from rich nations. The voluntary targets are regarded as among the most ambitious for a developing nation and came after international pressure to curb deforestation, improve land management and boost energy efficiency in Southeast Asia’s largest economy. Developing nations now emit more than half mankind’s greenhouse gas pollution, fuelled by soaring demand for coal, oil and gas to power their booming economies. (September 27th 2011) Woman Catches Her Rapist in a Jakarta Traffic Jam An Indonesian woman frustrated by Jakarta police’s failure to capture four men who kidnapped and gang-raped her in a public minivan, took matters into her own hands and singlehandedly found her attackers. RS, 28, an employee of a company on Jalan Sudirman, was raped by the four men in a bemo on Sept. 1, a day after Idul Fitri celebrations, said Comr. Sungkono, the deputy director of traffic operations at South Jakarta Police. The victim reported the attack to police and took time off work to recover from her ordeal but grew restless and then angry after police failed to report any progress. The victim lost patience and bravely returned to the same place where she was kidnapped, studying the faces of each passing bemo driver until she identified the rapist and began screaming at two nearby police officers for help. “She told our officers, ‘please arrest the man, Sir, he raped me,’” Sungkono said. The driver was not able to escape because he was stuck in traffic. The driver, Yogi, who drove between Cipete and Pondok Labu, has allegedly confessed to his role in the attack and identified the other three men. Sungkono was optimistic the trio would be arrested soon. Police said that inside the bemo was offensive graffiti, including Komplotan Penjahat Kelamin (Sexual Criminal Gang). West Jakarta Police last month arrested another bemo driver and a passenger over the murder of 21-year-old college student Livia Pavita Soelistio. (September 15th 2011)

Kebun Raya Eka Karya: Bali’s Own Grand Country Estate The most underutilized, underpublicized and u n d e r appreciated tourist attraction in all of Bali lies on the cool slopes of a volcano a mere 10 minutes drive from Lake Bratan in the mountains of Kebun Raya central Bali. As the lone Westerner wandering through the Kebun Raya Botanical Gardens on recent glorious afternoon, I could count all the foreign guests during my two-hour visit on the fingers of one hand. Though decidedly bereft of foreign tourists, not so with Indonesians. As we crested a small hill from the east we were greeted with the sight of several thousand Muslim visitors cavorting happily on the lawns. Long lines of gleaming new cars were parked bumper to bumper on both sides of the road leading up to the administrative building and orchid garden at the top. I was certain that this Muslim tribal gathering had to be from Java, but a driver told me that they were all from Bali. Perhaps not every Muslim in Bali was at the Kebun Raya that day, but it looked like they were, taking full advantage of the green, inviting and beautifully landscaped environs of this huge park. It is a superb locale for a picnic, shady stroll or romantic tryst. For young couples, which were trying to make themselves as inconspicuous as possible, it is known as a favourite meeting place (kebun jodoh). For the comfort and use Tree Top Adventure of visitors, benches, covered pavilions, an arboretum, three temples, cafeteria, campgrounds, electrical hook-ups, meeting rooms, clean restrooms and well-paved roads are provided. Recreational facilities include The Bali Treetop Adventure Park where visitors from 4 to 70 years old can fly through the treetops while attached to a lifeline in four different circuits from 2 m to 20-m in height graded according to agility or experience. The start of the 2.5-km-long road up to this sprawling “live museum” of native habitats lies just 200 meters south of the Candikuning market on Bali’s main north-to-south highway, 60 km from Denpasar. The extensive 157-ha park of upwards of 20,000 plant specimens is situated on the hilly lower slopes of 2,065-meter-high Gunung Pohon (“tree mountain”) to the west at an altitude of 1,200 to 1,450 meters elevation. The best time to visit is Bali’s springtime April-June when the gardens are bursting with color and all its flowers are in full bloom. Other times of the year the park can be just as attractive. It was a partly cloudy September the day when we visited, the sun shining intermittently through big cumulous clouds. The Republic’s First Botanical Gardens Founded in 1959, Kebun Raya Eka Karya is dedicated to the dual roles of providing recreation and scientific research into the mountain flora of eastern Indonesia (Bali, Nusa Tenggara, Sulawesi, Sumatra and Papua). The park also offers environmental education programs for students to learn about the fascinating world of plants and their importance to all life on earth. Initially carved out of 50 ha of forested land held by the Ministry of Forestry, the Bali Botanic Garden is just one of four major government-owned botanical gardens in Indonesia, including the Cibodas Botanical Garden in West Java, the Purwodadi Botanical Garden of East Java and the world-famous Bogor Botanical Gardens of West Java, 60 km south of Jakarta. All were established during the Dutch colonial period. Kebun Raya Bali is in some ways more beautiful and breathtaking than Bogor because the topography and landscaping are more variegated, the high-altitude plants more interesting, and the backdrop of misty mountains is more dramatic. Another proud

distinction is that Kebun Raya Eka Karya was the first of the country’s botanical gardens to have been established following Indonesian independence and thus is the first to be run entirely by Indonesians. The park’s open lawns and dense forests make excellent vantage points for some serious wildlife viewing: skinks, bunglon lizards, wild fowl (ayam hutan), squirrel-like tree shrews (near the Fern Park), 97 species of birds and 37 species of butterflies. A stunning 8-km-long circular footpath, starting from the Ethnobotany Guesthouse on the park’s northeast side, takes the visitor up through the foothills at the north end of the valley to the accompaniment of splashing of water, the shrill calls of monkeys, the incessant droning of cicadas, and at dusk swooping bats foraging for insects. Originally established as a collection of species of conifers from all over the world, starting in 1975 the park’s functions broadened to include ex-situ conservation of plants from high-altitude habitats of eastern Indonesia, eventually building a world-class collection of montane plants. Scientific facilities include herbarium, seed bank, library, glasshouses, nurseries and a plant database. Managed by scientists from the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), the collections comprise over 2000 plant species including orchids, ceremonial plants, medicinal plants, cactus, ferns and aquatic plants. Plants are meticulously arranged in family and species order. Closely related species are planted together, with specimens labelled in Latin while park signs are in Indonesian. For flower lovers the highlights are lilies, poinsettias, bougainvillea, and rare species Podocarpus imbricatus and Pinanga Javana. The tallest tree among the garden’s 668 species is the Geseng pine tree (Casuarina junghuniana Miq). The park’s rarest plants include Giant Tree Ferns from New Zealand and Rhododendron citrinum Hassk that is on the Rhododendrons World Red List. But what the gardens are renown for are its begonias and orchids. The park temperature of 17-25 degrees C. in the daytime and 10-15 C. at night makes for an ideal habitat f o r t h e Begonia House cultivation of begonias. Our kids played hide and seek among the serpentine walkways of the Begonia House (near Nayaka Loka Convention Hall) where the many varieties grew in profusion. My wife bought a few Begonia plants for only Rp10,000 each in the small nursery to the left after we climbed the stairway from the parking lot and entered the grounds of the Begonia House. The Rarest of Orchids At the top of the gardens, just beyond the administrative office and about 800 meters or 15 minutes walk up from main gate is the park’s famed orchid gardens with its 300 varieties of Orchid House orchids, a collection only rivaled by the Bogor Botanical Gardens. There are only two species of orchid, which can only be found in Bali, the Malleola baliensis and Calanthe baliensis. Most Balinese orchids flower from March until June. A man with a name card dangling from his breast pocket noticed me peeking through the wire mesh of the nursery and invited me inside. He introduced himself Gede Ardika. Pak Gede grew up in a mountainous clime of Munduk that has high-altitude vegetation similar to Kebun Raya’s. He’s been working at the orchid gardens for four years. On weekends he informed me that there is always staff around to answer questions and let you into the orchid nursery if you wish.

I asked Pak Gede to show me some unique orchids. He pointed out unusual slipper orchids, the green Phapiopedillum javanicum, the Bulbophyllum odoratum with yellow stripes, and the reddish speckled Edindabrium Sulawesi. These orchid varieties from the Indonesia’s mountain forests are not as colourfully flamboyant as cultivated hybrids, but if you look closely you can make out very small but exquisite flowers. In Indonesia there exist 4000 species of orchids, a plant species which dates back to the age of the dinosaurs. About half of all the country’s orchids occur in Papua province. Many wild species are endangered because of overcollecting and loss of forest habitat. No orchids for sale in the gardens, but can be bought on the road leading up to the park’s entrance. Afterwards, we checked these nurseries and found that the prices were too expensive and the plants not that well cared for. The prices as well as the variety of plants in the three nurseries behind the Candikuning market are better. The cactus collection, in its own large glasshouse on the other side of the road from the orchid garden, comprised cacti from all over the world from thick and succulent (fleshy) to spiny and hairy with many species sporting colorful flowers. Heading back down, we waded through the middle of the boisterous crowds, shouts and whoops erupting as the men played football in woman’s dresses, kids competed in burlap bag, wooden shoes and rice cracker-eating contests and off in a corner women sang dangdut songs. Our five-year-old son joined kids rolling down a grassy hill as a corporate team-building event blared in the background.

Jamie James:


Novelist, Critic, Travel Writer

Rimbaud is unique in many ways. He is one of the very few examples of a child prodigy in literature. There are several cases of six-year-olds composing symphonies, like Mozart, and children who show an uncanny talent for mathematics or chess, but Rimbaud basically invented modern poetry by the age of sixteen. To say he was wise beyond his years would be a massive understatement! What kind of person was he?

C/NV/I- 27 July 11

Rimbaud’s life is even more amazing than his work. He created the prototype of the artist as rebel. For starters, he lived openly as the lover of an older man, the poet Paul Verlaine, at a time when sodomy was a felony. The two of them were drunk on absinthe and stoned on hashish pretty much all the time. Rimbaud did his best to piss off everyone – especially people who wanted to help him. His uncompromising individualism, verging on sociopathy, and his visionary artistic ideas made him a hero to great rock musicians, including Jim Morrison of the Doors, who always had a copy of Rimbaud’s poetry with him, as well as Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, and especially Patti Smith, who idolizes him. She writes beautifully about Rimbaud’s influence on her in her recent memoir Just Kids, which I recommend highly, by the way. She’s a great writer. Is there any other poet whose work is similar to his?

Jamie James was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where he attended public high school. After graduating from Williams College, he moved to New York, where he worked as a journalist at Andy Warhol’s Interview, Rolling Stone and Time, among other national magazines. In 1999, he resigned his post as an art critic for The New Yorker and moved to Indonesia. In 13 years’ residence in Jakarta and Bali he has published two novels and contributed features and reviews to The Atlantic Monthly, Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times. James also writes about culture and travel in Asia for popular magazines including Men’s Journal and Condé Nast Traveller. He and his partner live in Kerobokan, Bali where they own two restaurants. What prompted you to write a book about Arthur Rimbaud’s voyage to Java? The subject neatly brought together two of my passions. I’ve been reading Rimbaud ever since I was a rebellious teenager, just like he was when he wrote his amazing poetry. I’ve lived in Bali for six years, but in some ways my heart belongs to Java. People in Bali are always surprised when I tell them that I miss Jakarta, where I lived before I came here – this is unheard of. I love Bali too, but some of my favorite places in Indonesia are in Central Java. I also wrote poetry when I was a teenager growing up in Houston, and came across a paperback translation of A Season in Hell at my local bookshop. It blew my mind. Why did you pick this episode of the poet’s life? Rimbaud’s voyage to Java in 1876 as a mercenary soldier in the Dutch Colonial Army was one of the most mysterious passages in a life full of mysteries. Very little is known about the episode, even by scholars. It’s such an unlikely adventure that in the early days of Rimbaud studies, scholars thought it was just another of the poet’s extravagant tall tales. How did the actual book evolve? My original intention was to write a novel that would imaginatively reconstruct this lost voyage. I did a lot of research into Rimbaud’s life and conditions in Java when he was here. I beavered away at it for years, and produced piles of manuscript pages, but I was always stymied when I tried to write dialogue for him. Above all else, Rimbaud was original and unpredictable. Most attempts at a fictionalized version of his life have been pretty embarrassing, like Total Eclipse, the film starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the poet. So in the end I abandoned the novel and sat down and wrote this book. It went very quickly, because I had already done all the research.

What is distinctive about Rimbaud as a poet?

Yes, many – but they all come after him! I would say that he has been more influential than any other poet of the 19th century – maybe even more so in English than French. Most people don’t realize that Rimbaud actually lived in London longer than in Paris. T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound revered him and openly imitated him, and the Surrealists proclaimed him as their master. The list goes on….

Letters To Bali Advertiser These Boots are Made for Walkin’ Dear Sir, The Sanur beach walkway is a wonderful path to enjoy the beach, feel the breeze and just relax – unless you are run down by a pedal bike. It use to be bikes were banned from the ‘walkway’ but now every other warung along the beach has bikes for rent. With its sharp corners, low over hanging tree branches and crowds of tourists, this is NOT a good bike path but many people use it as such. Some are courteous and ring their bells but actually most expect walkers to move out of their way. I recently read of European cities where there is almost warfare between bikers and pedestrians. Now it has come to Bali. May be I will carry a walking cane and stick it through a few spokes. Walker in Sanur

Why is Rimbaud particularly admired by other writers?


That’s easy – he’s just about the only famous writer who gave it up. A few eccentric authors like J.D. Salinger became recluses and stopped publishing their work, others despaired and committed suicide, but to just stop writing the way Rimbaud did is unimaginable to most writers. Sometimes writers get so frustrated we wish we could give it up, but it’s a compulsion more than a choice. Obviously there’s also the attraction of Rimbaud’s work, which is amazingly original. He wrote a few really beautiful poems, but mostly they are strange, mind-bending visions. His imagination had no limits.

A House in Bali

Why do you think Rimbaud stopped writing? This is one of the perennial puzzles of literary history. There’s a new novel about Rimbaud which blames it on his strict upbringing. His mother famously told him when he was a boy to give up poetry, because there’s no money in it. It’s true that Rimbaud was very devoted to her, but this theory doesn’t seem plausible to me. I think the decision must be connected in some way to his turbulent relationship with Verlaine. It all came to a head when Rimbaud told Verlaine he was leaving him, and Verlaine shot him in the wrist. Their love affair was exposed and Verlaine went to prison. It was soon after that that Rimbaud began his period of restless wanderings, which reached its farthest point in the voyage to Java. But it will always be a mystery. Rimbaud never explained himself. Where can people find your book? My book will be launched at the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival on October 6th at 5:30 pm, at Betelnut restaurant on Jl. Raya Ubud opposite the Puri Lukisan museum. The event is free and open to the public.

Dear Readers, For most people the attraction for Bali is the people and the landscape. Then please do not destroy a rice field or more agricultural land to build your second home. Regardless of what you may have been told by your property agent this land is the rightful inheritance of the children of Bali. And what a mess of concrete and infertile land many of them will acquire! Ask yourself; do you really want the headache of building in Bali? For what is a house but a home. And what is a home but a place to lay your head down at the end of the day, a place to take refuge in the shelter of family and friends, that which we all need and crave. Why not renovate one of the many deserted, or incompleted holiday homes dotted all over the island? You may even pick up a bargain here. Even less problematic, arrange a long-term rental agreement in a hotel villa or best of all rent a room in a family compound. Use your money to help the family and the village. You will get back so much. Your life will be fulfilled ten thousand times. And when you have had enough and you leave this precious island, your footprint will be light and bountiful. I thankyou in advance for your consideration and I hope that you receive as much happiness as Bali has given me. Yours Faithfully Guru Ibu Lala/Columba Tierney Melaya Orphanage West Bali.

by Dr. Rob Refreshingly Different Group Exhibition of Artworks At W Retreat & Spa, Jl. Petitengent, Seminyak. Currently, the Taksu Art Gallery has mounted a group exhibition of contemporary artworks which feature a wide range of local and international artists. It is hoped that the audiences will find the show ‘Refreshingly Different’. Much is on offer: Ann Morrison


Born in 1966 in Scotland, Anne now lives and works in Tasmania, Australia. Anne holds a Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and a Doctor of Philosophy of Fine Arts from the University of Tasmania. In her piece ‘Colony’, Anne uses a frenzy of tiny brushstrokes to build-up layers of paint. Her abstracted image vibrates with energy.

Bob Sick Yudhita Born in 1971 in Yogyakarta, Bob graduated from the Indonesia Institute of the Arts there. He still lives and paints in Yogyakarta. As his work ‘Little Red Angel with Coconut’ shows, Bob is influenced by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Bob’s paintings are spontaneous and filled with poetry and thoughts. Bob also enjoys exploring ideas of pain and bliss, and the true meaning of creating art via his work processes.

Past Midnight

Fine Arts, and then a Masters of Arts, Fine Arts and Technology. With his paintings and installations, Meme takes us into the other side of what seem to be innocent fairytales. Meme creates complex labyrinths of strange stories full of mysteries. His piece ‘Past Midnight’ is a typical example of his intriguing style.

Umibaizurah Born in 1975 in Malaysia, Umibaizurah also lives and works in Kuala Lumpur. Umibaizurah received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Malaysian University of Technology. Umibaizurah’s sculpture ‘The Smuggler’ is created in porcelain, metal and wood. There seems to be a deliberate naïve quality to her humorous work. Umibaizurah likes to work with children, and takes inspiration from them. Uuk Paramahita Born in 1978, Uuk still lives and works in Denpasar. Uuk graduated from the Institute of Arts in Bali with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. With works like ‘Fun Bike’ Uuk takes traditional Balinese imagery and themes and places them into modern-day settings. A certain amount of social observation can also be noted in his work.

Hanh sees his art-making processes as a Rock & Roll Star humble activity, no higher than any other daily routine, like waking up in the morning and brushing his teeth.

and ‘Vases’, are a celebration of the best of Bali, and the island’s supreme ability to nurture and sustain both local and expatriate artists.

One of the most prolific, original, and talented designers in Bali, Carlo Pessina is known for his striking furniture and accessories, which are featured in many of the island’s major hotels and homes. Born in Milan, a major centre of Italian design and style, Carlo arrived in Bali in 1979 as a young artist in search of inspiration. Blessed with an uncanny sense of the market, and a supreme sense of style, Carlo first began creating a series of soft furnishings using Indonesian ikat fabrics, which were an immediate success. In the process, he realized his White Seater passion and ability to unite elegant sculptural forms and exotic textures to make ‘living’ furniture. In 1982, he pioneered his first line of signature designs, experimenting with a wide range of materials like coconut-wood, seashells, and terrazzo. Until then, these materials were rarely associated with furniture. Three decades later, Carlo’s work is no less beautiful, important, or fresh. Remarkably, his talents received little recognition in Bali outside of a small circle of friends, and some international designers, before he opened his own gallery in Sanur, in 2003. Today, Carlo stands as first and foremost amongst a small handful of original world-class design artists living and working in Bali.

I’m a book junkie. When I was about two years old my mother found me sitting in an old apple crate with furrowed brow pretending to read one of my father’s books upside down. I finally figured out which way was up, and the addiction began. I’d read by flashlight in bed under the covers long after lights-out. I would disappear into the woods on summer days with a book and an apple and not come home until it was too dark to read. I joined the local library at age 6 and spent most of my pocket money on fines. As an adult, my worst nightmare has always been to run out of reading material. I saved the classics for holidays, devouring War and Peace on a Thai beach, most of Jane Austin in a Queensland youth hostel and a stack of Thomas Hardy in a caravan tethered to a stormy Scottish shore.

a house in the sawah. It was all rice fields around there then, of course; now it’s the middle of town.” They moved the store to Ubud’s main street in 1991 almost across from its present location. It immediately attracted a unique clientele. Bookworms happily browsed the shelves while Ketut gave Balinese music lessons upstairs. Periplus opened in Ubud about that time, which helped Ganesha develop its own personality and ambience.

Ganesha Books is now home to one of the most interesting and complete collections of new, used, out-of-print, antiquarian and rare books on Indonesia Anita started sourcing hard-to-find books in Java and over time began to bring in rare English-language books on Indonesia which were not available to the outside world. She found that Indonesian universities had no distribution for their academic books in English and in 1997 she started a website for books on Indonesian studies at www.ganeshabooksbali. com. Ganesha Books is now home to one of the most interesting and complete collections of new, used, out-of-print, antiquarian and rare books on Indonesia as well as the best collection of second hand books in the country. A collector herself, Anita has rare book cabinets in all her stores and is gratified to find that Indonesians are now becoming interested in them. Regular clients come once a year to check out her collection and add to their own. What books do people buy? “We’re seeing a spike in interest in Indonesian art, architecture and culture,” says Anita. “People are always interested in what’s new and current novels. Travellers buy Bali Sekala Niskala, academics are always looking for new research, we see many collectors of Indonesian books and casual travelers like easy books. Crime is popular.” She finds that other book junkies, like me, go for those fat classics -- Dickens and Dovstoyevsky -- because holidays give us the time and space to absorb these complex books and nap between chapters.

Book addicts will agree that finding a great secondhand bookshop on holiday is on par with discovering a clean, cheap, convivial hotel with good food. Imagine my delight when I first found Ganesha bookshop on a trip to Ubud in the early 1990s. I’ve been haunting its shelves ever since because it’s always had a perfect mix of books on Indonesia, language, classics, murders, travel, best sellers and bath tub trash. Clearly, the owners of this enchanting Aladdin’s cave were people of vision and imagination as well as being serious book junkies themselves. It takes one to know one. At last I met Anita Scheeres. Although Anita had visited Bali in 1976 on a student holiday, the story really began when she met Ketut Yuliarsa at a batik exhibition on Bondi Beach in Sydney a few years later. It was love at first sight. The academic and literary Ketut was already living and working in Australia, and the couple settled there with annual visits to Ketut’s native homeland. On one of these trips in 1986, they decided to set up a little second-hand bookshop with a few shelves of their own small collection of literature. At that time Ubud had no book store, and the shop on Monkey Forest Road was instantly popular with travelling readers. Anita called the shop Ganesha not only because he’s the patron of writers, but for his friendly and welcoming mien. “Ganesha was the first bookshop in Ubud by default really,” Anita remembers. “We had the opportunity to rent a store and decided to try selling second hand books there. Ketut’s father would come up from Denpasar every day to run it. After a while we bought some land behind the store and built

As the doors of mega bookshops like Borders are slamming shut in the west, little Ganesha Books continues to expand and thrive. “I really focus on my market,” Anita explains. “I know my customer base very well, and I went deep instead of wide. Borders and other big stores went mass market, but that’s not interesting enough for people. There’s lots of new English fiction in Java; however, that is not my market. Periplus does a good job there, so I focus on my own niche.” And what about Kindle, I asked? I have mixed feelings about this reading machine. My own book is on it but I’m too addicted to the weight of a book in my hands, the feel of the paper, the turn of the page, to make the leap. Anita doubts that Kindle will have an impact on her bookshops. “People who come to Ganesha love books, especially the art books. I ask people how they read and often they use both Kindle and real books. Kindle will have its place, but don’t think it will be a substitute. Art books are too big to digitize.”

They recently realized a long-term dream of opening a free bilingual Reading Room for both children and adults In 2008 Ganesha Books opened a branch at Biku Tea Room in Seminyak which offers a good selection of books plus a range of handmade cards and gifts, daily newspapers and magazines from around the world. Anita and Ketut are committed to spreading the joy of reading among the Balinese. They recently realized a long-term dream of opening a free bilingual Reading Room for both children and adults in a wonderful building near the Arts Centre at Jalan Nusa Indah 21a near the Institute for Seni (Arts) in Denpasar. “Here we have a large sitting area for people to come in and just read whatever we have on the shelves,” Anita told me. “Books are also for sale, but primarily we are offering a free reading space, which is a very new concept here. Books are both in Indonesian and in English with a large corner set aside for children to relax and read. We have special free Sunday programs of story time and bilingual reading for children. Our goal for this Ganesha Bookshop and Reading Room is to help foster literacy, learning and above all, reading for pleasure in the Balinese community. Bali residents and tourists are welcome to come and read in English to the children.”

Ketut, himself a writer of poetry and librettos, is passionate about providing as many books as possible to stimulate the culture of reading in Bali. “Gramedia prints a lot of books, so there is an interest,” Anita observes. “Sadly, many people have other priorities in terms of what they need to buy and books are low on the list. Our focus is on arts, so many books on art, music and literature are available. The kids asked if they can just come in and read, and many are now enjoying the opportunity to drop in and hang out with books.” Ganesha Bookshop is involved in another program to promote reading for pleasure in Balinese children. The shop’s Books for Bali Project, established in 2004, supports local schools and libraries and the Rotaract Club of Bali, Ubud by assisting its Mobile Library Project. The Mobile Library is currently working with elementary schools in Payangan and Tampaksiring and hopes to bring the program further afield in the near future. Staff from Ganesha Bookshop travel with the Rotarators in the Mobile Library and assist in the various programs which include learning to read in both Bahasa Indonesia and in English through enjoyable lessons, storytime, games and singing. Residents and travelers to Bali are invited to support this project by purchasing books for the Mobile Library and for the local schools and libraries from Ganesha’s excellent collection of bilingual and Indonesian language children’s books either by visiting the stores or through the website. Used children’s books in good condition can also be dropped off at any of the stores. A bookplate identifies the donor and the school. This program provides a conduit through which people can make a meaningful contribution to literacy, and they can also donate time when they come to Bali by reading and teaching English at these schools. New literature not readily available in Indonesia, and it’s challenging to keep up the quality of good books on the shelves. Anita cycles them through a free box and has a big selection of free books at the Denpasar shop, so even if you’re broke there’s no need to go into withdrawal. The recent increase in Ubud’s traffic noise and pollution was impetus to air-condition the shop here, which also has new wooden shelving. Ganesha in Ubud has a great vibe... quiet and cool, with all those books exhaling invitingly and a staff that understands the concept of browsing. You can sell them your high-quality second hand books or barter for some of theirs. And it’s so central to the important things in life. If you need to change money to buy books Ibu Uang at PT Prawira Valas, my favourite money changer for many years, is directly across the lane. After you’ve made your selections, you can have a delicious read over a delicious lunch at Kue or Bali Buddha just steps away. What could be more satisfactory than a stack of tempting books by the bed, waiting to be read? And knowing that Ganesha Books, just down the road, will always be there to feed my habit.

The most important criteria for inclusion on this reading list were that the book be among the best in its genre and that it be available for purchase in Bali. Some extremely important books about Bali have been left out because they are out of print or otherwise unavailable. All the titles listed alphabetically below, as well as many rare, out of print and hard to find books on Bali and Indonesia, can be found in one of the three Ganesha independent bookstores owned and operated by local poet/musician Ketut Yuliarsa and his wife Anita.

Guaranteed warmth in contrast to the never guaranteed summers of England where garden parties and flower shows are annual events! These two days will be filled with music, food, wine and lots of different shows. The flower show, dog show, fashion show, art show are not to be missed.

Bali Pink Ribbon Walk (22 October) I hope that you have organised your tickets for this walk to support a very noble and needy cause. These women are counting on you; both the Bali International Women’s Association who have organised this event and those that need help to fight this very nasty cancer that descends upon the lives of many women who can be saved if detection is early enough. Because it is the second largest killer of women in Indonesia it is vital that efforts are made to combat this form of cancer and the Bali Pink Ribbon aims to do that in partnership with Bali Care Cancer Foundation. All proceeds raised from the walk will go directly to help fund educational programmes and breast screening services in remote parts of Bali. If you haven’t booked your tickets make

this a priority and if you are not up for the walk come along as a spectator and enjoy a great day out. The walk will start and finish in the grounds of Nusa Dua and participants may choose to run or walk the five kilometre route through gardens or the beach path. Live music, spa cabins, a craft bazaar, great raffle prizes and international food stalls will add to the attractions and make this a super day out whether you are walking or spectating.

Cocoon Splash (23 October) This is the very last pool party for 2011 and your last chance to spend a Sunday in this way. This is the recommended plan for the day. After your Saturday evening out on the town, brunch at Cocoon followed by poolside splashes! The Sunday recovery brunch assumes you’ll need to recover and includes a full breakfast which must mean a fry up of sorts, free flow coffee, bloody marys - great if you need a hair of the dog and then on to splash where you can enjoy music pumped out by Bali’s coolest DJs and start all over again.

Kuta Carnival (14 - 16 October) This annual event which came about after those terrible terrorist attrocities nine years ago has now become a celebration of life with a food festival, competitions and live entertainment. It is an event where there is something for everyone and a recognition of Bali’s success since 2002 where hope and desperation has been replaced with a sense of pride at the accomplishments of the local communities in the years after that night that will never be forgotten. Come down to Kuta (not in the car) and have lots of fun. Where : Kuta Beach Contact :

Lake Batur Festival (10 and 11 October) Although I normally mention events in the south of Bali I think that this celebration is worth noting. A two day celebration of culture and music at the Kintamani Volcano organised in order to promote Kintamani as a tourist destination. Boat races, concerts by Koes Plus and Ebiet G Ade, seminars, a food festival, fruit carving and cultural performances are part of the activities. The whole idea is to spread tourists around a little and move them onwards from the overcrowded enclaves of south Bali. The governor of Bali will also be there on the first morning to give a speech. There does not appear to be an official English language website but you can get information from for a list of events and times. When : 10 am – 4 pm Where : Kintamani Contact :

St Regis Bali Resort – Wine Night (8 October)

Bali will host the fourth annual Horticultural Festival, a combination of three events, National Flora Week, Denpasar Horticulture Festival and the Sanur Village Festival. The Denpasar festival is held each year to promote the city as a tourist destination, its products and the creativity of the people. The Sanur festival is a popular community event that draws the masses with fabulous food, live entertainment and an array of other activities. The national flora week is important as horticulture is a sector that is being supported in Indonesia to reach millenium development goals set by the United Nations to create better lives for people through good horticultural cultivating practices, safe harvesting, safe practices, environmental resource conservation with business opportunities and more jobs. Thirty three provinces will be part of this combined festival toegether with national and international business people. Indonesia’s archepelago is home to stunning flora and fauna and this is a great place to come along and see some amazing plants and perhaps pick up a tip or two.

Jason Mraz (9 November) Now this is one of the few musicians that I actually like today and I particularly enjoy his easy listening catchy tunes including ‘Lucky’ and ‘I’m Yours’. Hailing from the US, Jason Mraz is a singer-songwriter who was born and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia. His international breakthrough came with the song ‘I’m Yours’. How exciting that Jason Mraz has added Bali to his tour venues choosing a stylish location for his acoustic performance together with Toca Rivera. You can purchase your tickets at Taman Bhagawan, Disc Tarra at Mal Bali Galleria or Bali Discovery Tours. Alternatively you can go on-line and book at the website below.

Here’s another opportunity to enjoy an outstanding wine evening in the Astor Ballroom with wines from Count Francesco Marone Cinzano and the Wines of Montalcino. The evening begins with cocktails and canapes at the King Cole Bar followed by the wine dinner. The menu is exquisite with top quality wines paired with each course. Definitely a special treat.

The Ubud Readers and Writers Festival (5 – 8 October) If you haven’t booked your tickets for the festival then do so now or at least take a one day pass. There’s an amazing line up of feature events. Over one hundred and twenty writers have flown in for the occasion including one of my favourite writers Alexander McCall Smith the creator of the beloved Mma Ramotswe, the founder of The Number One Ladies Detective Agency! Writers from Indonesia, the US, Egypt and the far corners of the world come together with other novelists, screenwriters, poets and playwrights into the heart of Bali for a festival of words. You’ll need to go straight to the website to click on what events are left as I know that tickets have been selling like hotcakes. Although this is an Ubud event, as an avid reader and writer I, I believe it needs to be given as much publicity as possible as it’s an amazing time for the literary world. It’s also fantastic to see that the ANZ bank is now the official sponsor this year. The events, times, places and various prices are listed on the website. See what’s available and go and enjoy the company of like-minded people. When : from 9 am Cost : IDR520,000 (day pass for KITAS holder) Contact :
