TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

The Balinese Art of Ogoh-Ogoh The Balinese Art Of Ogoh-Ogoh is a spectacular large-format book which documents and salutes one of Bali’s newest and most unique art forms the amazing pre-Nyepi effigies called ogoh-ogoh. The upcoming Nyepi, or Balinese New Year, will take place this year on March 22nd during the spring equinox of the Balinese lunar (saka) calendar. Lifted onto the shoulders of the village men, the terrifying doll-like papier mâché statues are enthusiastically crafted in an orgy of communal creativity during the weeks leading up to the annual celebration in village community halls all over Bali. Much like many of Balinese perishable art forms – giant cremation towers, lamak palm leaf decorations, etc. – the beloved ogoh-ogoh are consumed by flames in the days following the holiday, having already fulfilled their mission of neutralizing the negative forces on the island. From beginning to end, the preparations and festivities last three days. Nyepi is a day of silent retreat, prayer, and quiet meditation. It is a day when the world as we know it stands still, an atmosphere similar to what the whole of Bali felt like 30 years ago - no electricity, no cars, no tourists roaming about. The New Year must begin with complete nothingness because all existence originates from nothingness. The purpose of this behavior is to suppress passion, teach control of excesses, and practice semadi (meditation). No transportation is taken, no work done and no sexual or other sensory pleasures are indulged in. Meals are prepared in advance as no fires may be lit, only small candles inside the home are permitted. You may not read, smoke, boil water or eat. For 24 hours no one leaves the house compound, no vehicles can drive on roads, no airplanes can land or depart, no illumination is allowed, no telephones can ring. To see that stillness is preserved, members of the local banjar keep silent watch at points along the roads and in the alleyways. Restaurants, offices, and shops are closed, traffic lights are shut off, and even Denpasar’s streets are deserted. Bali’s ports are closed down because no ships or ferries are in operation. To find their way around the grounds, hotel staff carries shaded flashlights pointed downward. Why all this? The Balinese hope that the demons and evil spirits aroused by the noise the night before will be deluded into thinking that Bali is completely devoid of life, prompting them to vacate the island and not cause mischief. The Balinese Art of Ogoh Ogoh became an island-wide project for photographer-designer-publisher Leonard Lueras when he announced a photo competition in the Bali Advertiser in 2011. The main body of the book displays the work of 33 of Bali’s leading native and foreign photographers who took most of the book’s images over two successive Nyepi celebrations in 2010 and 2011. Full-page bleeds of ogoh-ogoh snarl and hiss from every page. The Balinese

photographers among the contributors demonstrate a different take on the same subject. Take a look, for example, at the energetic and painterly quality of the first two-page spread of splendid ogoh-ogoh leaping against an exploding confetti-like background. Populating the book’s pages are not just the usual rogue’s gallery of demons and gods but characters representing both good and evil human characteristics: corrupt politicians, tax cheats, wanton prostitutes and gamblers, disco queens, spiky-haired surfers and boxers, down-on-their-luck drunkards, and drug addicts holding aloft syringes. Contemporary life is seen in beasts riding the back of a big chopper motorcycles, tourists gulping beer, sate sellers, pop culture icons like Sponge Bog, Avatar, rock stars, and all manner of other bizarre creations springing from the fertile and devil-possessed minds of Balinese craftsmen.

In what Made Wijaya, one of Bali’s top cultural arbiters and preservers, called “the garden book launch party of the decade,” the book was launched in 2011 in a private reception at the Batujimbar Estates in Sanur. Since then the art book has been special ordered by the U.S. Library of Congress, the Countess of Torino, the Princess of Bandaneira, the Princess of Karangasem, the PresidentDirector of Philips Indonesia (who ordered 20 copies to give to V.I.P. clients) and Captain Patty Seery (to have on board her luxury pinisi yacht Silolona). The Raja of Gianyar recently showed the book around to a number of prominent guests at a formal dinner party at his new mansion in Menteng, Jakarta. Manufactured by Indonesia’s foremost large-format book printer, Jakarta’s Indonesia Printer, on unusually heavy 190-gram art paper in five colors, presented in a formal poleng-motif cloth slipcase with gold-foil-stamped lettering on the cover, with many of its extraordinary images enhanced by spot varnish, the book weighs in at a hefty 2.5 kilos. With only 2000 copies of the premiere hardcover edition printed, this beautiful and extravagantly produced book is ultimately destined to become a highly-collectible rare book.

C/Ns/G-8 Feb. 12

The Balinese Art of Ogoh Ogoh was edited, directed and designed by Yayasan Bali Purnati’s publisher-authorphotographer Leonard Lueras and produced by longtime Bali resident Chris Ball. In the book’s thankfully short text we are spared the usual long-winded scholarly treatise about Bali’s distinctive place in the pantheon of anthropology and move straightaway within the first few pages to the captivating images of Ogoh-ogoh which prove beyond doubt that the visual arts of Bali are perpetually reinventing themselves and that Balinese festivals are in a state of ceaseless renewal. The Balinese Art Of Ogoh-Ogoh, foreword by Dr. Ayu Bulantrisma Djelantik, Introduction by Vaughan Hatch, co-published by Chris Ball and Yayasan Bali Purnati 2011. Available for Rp800,000 at Ganesha bookstores, the Neka Museum and the Komaneka Gallery in Ubud, Made’s Warung and the Oberoi Hotel in Seminyak. It can also be ordered by contacting the Yayasan Bali Purnati (tel. 0361-294-590).

BA Feature


This Land Is Not For Sale, It Is For Farming By Pamela Tibbs According to British author, Albert Pine, “What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” In Dausa, a traditional village in East Bali, volunteers from around the world are living Pine’s philosophy. Eager volunteers and local Balinese villagers work hand in hand as they till the soil, mix cement, feed the pigs, build shelters, plant crops, dig fish ponds, and work at the many tasks that are part of an ordinary day in the life of a member of Side By Side Organic Farm Co-operative. Ketut Sudarsana, farm manager firmly declares, “Our land is not for sale. This land is used to grow rice and vegetables. We have fish ponds and prawn ponds. We use no chemicals. The land feeds us. Our market garden pays school fees for the children. No one from our farm goes to school hungry, not like they did in the past. When they come home from school, the kids help to feed the cows. K e t u t i s passionate about his culture, the land, and growing food. Probably not a good idea to bring up the subject of building villas with him. He says” If you want to work with us like a Balinese farmer, we welcome you. If you would like to relax, eat our good food, or spend the night in nature, we would love to show you traditional Bali. It is right here.” The farm co-operative empowers those in need and creates a memorable cultural experience for visitors. As they put down their computers and pick up a shovel, eager volunteers often experience working with their hands for the first time in their lives. Getting muddy, working in the rain, or carrying a squealing pig across the fields is just part of daily life on the farm. The extended Sudarsana family patiently teaches the novice farmers how to work. Ketut smiles as he explains that the volunteers “learn to work in the Bali style. Sometimes, they get blisters, or they get tired, but together we work hard and enjoy each other’s company. And we always laugh and dance together. When one boy fell into the compost, he laughed. After we told him it was made from pig kaa-kaa, he ran for the new outdoor shower that his group had built. I don’t think they have compost at his condo in Hong Kong. He told me he lives on the twenty third floor, I don’t know how people live in the air, we Balinese need to touch the earth.” Side By Side Organic Farm started with a dream that two people wanted to make into reality. Twelve years ago, Ketut, my driver, invited me to visit his traditional village. That visit to his small village in East Bali showed me a different view of the island that I thought I knew so well. The villagers, although poorly dressed and lacking in material wealth, greeted me with shy smiles and an overwhelming generosity. The women offered me steaming cups of strong coffee. Young men with knives held firmly between their teeth climbed swaying palm trees and laughingly tossed down coconuts for me to drink. On the surface, life looked okay, to an outsider. A closer look at the life of a village woman r e v e a l e d hardships that few foreigners associate with life in Bali. The women got up before dawn to collect fire wood. They then cooked their meager food ration for the day over an open fire. Women carried water from a well, one bucket at a time, water for a bath, water for drinking, water for the family’s one cow. I had never even thought about water, it was always just there.

I tried to live the life of a village woman. After rubbing my hands raw, I finally got a half bucket of water up from the well. My reward was a group of village kids, all watching, and finally laughing when I succeeded. Forget carrying firewood, just could not do it, no matter how many times I tired. The men made salt from the sea, climbed trees to make sugar from the trees. For both men and women, it was all back-aching time consuming work. I had no idea how hard this work was until I had tried it for myself. When time came for me to return to Ubud, the entire village turned out to wish me a fond farewell and to present me with gifts of fruit that they could ill afford to give away. As I waved good-bye to them, I knew my life had changed. I now wanted to help the villagers change their lives. Since Bali is traditionally an agrarian culture, the concept of a farm where people could grow their own food, raise livestock, and start small market gardens seemed like the idea with the best chance of success. Ketut and I began to raise awareness of our intention to start a project that would empower village women and help them to feed and educate their children. Once we stated our intention that we would start an organic farm to help people feed themselves, organizations and individuals offered their support. Everybody I knew got a letter explaining our project. Many people that I did not know but hoped to meet got a letter explaining our project. Much to my delight, a friend in Florida decided to start us off with a generous $4,000.00 donation. That donation lifted our spirits and made me aware that there were people everywhere who would contribute to a worthwhile cause. Singapore was no longer a destination just to renew a visa. There had to be people there who shared our vision of helping people to help themselves. Global Concerns Group at United World College in Singapore decided to organize events to raise awareness, one of which included sleepy eyed students getting up at 3:30 on a Saturday morning in order to trek the entire width of Singapore. Once the students had raised enough funds to buy land, they left behind all the comforts of urban life and traveled to rural Bali to help their project unfold. The eager students boarded a plane and left behind their metropolitan lifestyles. When they arrived in Dausa, they stepped into an agrarian village and began their first lessons in physical labor. The group worked side by side with the local farmers, all the while being surrounded by the laughter and curiosity of the village children. Foreigners working like Balinese caused quite a stir. Local people could not resist the temptation to teach the students a lesson or two about how to plant rice. And the students—they couldn’t resist the friendliness and the refreshing coconut drinks offered by the local villagers. Instant friendships were born in the rice fields. After returning to the comforts of her Singapore lifestyle, sixteen year old Catherine of UWCSEA says of her first farm experience, “I had the experience of a lifetime. I loved the country side. It is a paradise with coconut palms to climb, banana trees in the backyard, and an absolutely magnificent unmarred sky. After hot days of learning farming techniques designed to optimize local agriculture in sustainable ways, such as reusing animal refuse, it was a treat to get in a swimming hole, watching the bamboo sway against the blue sky.” “I loved the challenges. The project put character to the test. Though removed from the comforts of the Western world, it was exciting to see a positive attitude reign. But more than anything, I loved the Balinese people. They were thanking us for purchasing the farmland, but I thought it more appropriate to thank them for their hospitality. They have so little, yet they give so much with their smiles-shy smiles of the children, happy smiles on the school girls, honest smiles on the young men, and wrinkled smiles lighting the eyes of the elderly. It is because of the people that I feel a strong urge to return to Side By Side Farm. Without them, it would

have been an awesome week, but with them my experience in Bali was that of a lifetime!” G l o b a l l y concerned individuals and groups from around the world followed in the green footprints of the first volunteers. Side By Side Organic Farm became a working farm with a beautiful eco home stay and an organic restaurant where individuals and families could return to nature, make a difference, and enjoy traditional life in Bali. Will Hair, teacher and global concerns project leader at Realms of Inquiry High School brought a group of sixteen students to Bali from Utah. They left behind snow up to their knees to step into mud over their ankles. After only a day of acclimation, everyone was pitching in to build shelters and learn how to farm, Bali style. “This has been a wonderful experience for our whole group. I must say this trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you for your generosity and kindness. All of the students loved the project. I can’t wait to come back and finish what we started. Ketut, I consider you a dear friend, one who has taught us many lessons about Bali and your culture. I never knew food could taste so good! We will come back to the farm,” declared Will as he and his group left their new friends at Side By Side. They proved true to their word and returned to Bali on three occasions, each time adding a new addition to the farm project. In addition to experience the tourist’s pleasures of the island, visiting American Zuri Walker came to Bali to change her life. She wanted to explore her spiritual side, and expand her career horizons as a photographer. Zuri says of her stay at Side By Side Farm, “My visit to the farm helped me to complete my spiritual and photographic journey. There are opportunities for photos everywhere on this farm. I especially loved the smiles of the kids. The fresh food is so wonderful; the farmers live an authentic organic lifestyle.” During her visit to Side By Side, Virginia Sheridan, career journalist and teacher at Singapore American School, accepted an invitation to teach a lesson to the farm kids at their local school, Pedang Kerta. At the school, she led the classes through renditions of English songs, including Old MacDonald and The Weather Song. Everyone laughed at the various interpretations of animal sounds and the absurdity of singing it’s snowing outside in an equatorial country. Virginia’s visit to the farm was twofold. First, she wanted to show her daughters how traditional Balinese people live. Equally important, Virginia and her daughters wanted to visit a certain Mr. Brown who lives in a small grass hut and prefers a meal of an enormous helping of greens and the company of his long lashed dark-eyed female companions. Mr. Brown is a bull named for Edd Brown, a primary school technology teacher who died suddenly in a car crash in November 2011. The animal was donated to Side By Side by his family and friends of the seventeen year educator at Singapore American School. Virginia’s daughters, Sabine, grade 5, and Delaney, grade 4, continuously asked, “Can we please feed Mr. Brown?” The girls enjoyed fattening up the namesake of their beloved teacher. Mr. Brown would certainly welcome their return since he rarely gets ten meals a day. Virginia’s daughters decided to combine their allowance and buy a pig for the farmers. Virginia decided that the trip had certainly taught her girls some valuable life lessons. As for the farmers, they accepted gratefully and promised to feed Leyar the pig extra helpings. As the family left, work on Side By Side continued at a steady pace. Mt. Agung peeked through the clouds and a blanket of green rice fields stretched as far as the eye could see.

This Sporting Life

Swimming and Water Safety for Children and Young People with Disabilities in Bali - and how you can help! Bali Sports Foundation aims to use sport as a vehicle to engage, educate and build the capacity of children and young people throughout Bali and Indonesia. We do this in a variety of ways, through providing children and young people with opportunities to participate in sport, and by using sport as a way of engaging children and young people in broader issues relevant to their health, education and development. One of the key projects at Bali Sports Foundation is our swimming and water safety program for children and young people with disabilities. Bali Sports Foundation currently works with several organizations for children and young people with disabilities, providing their students with free, accessible, developmentally appropriate and inclusive swimming and water safety lessons. The aim of this program is to provide the students with basic water safety skills; skills essential to ensuring they are safe in and around water. A significant number of children drown in Indonesia every year simply because they do not have these basic water safety skills. Children with disabilities are even more at risk, as they often have not had the opportunity to swim recreationally or participate in water-based activities. The aim of our program is simple - to provide students with these essential water safety and survival skills, to train the teachers, staff and parents working with these students to further support them in this area, and thus to take some small but significant steps towards increasing the safety and health of children and young people in Bali. The programs we run are at no cost to the students or organisations. We provide swim instructors, training, resources and programs. However, a significant obstacle preventing a greater number of students from participating in our program is access to a suitable swimming pool; particularly a swimming pool located close to their organization (which makes it easier for parents/carers to bring the students, and to participate). In order to allow us to increase the number of organizations we work with, therefore increasing the number of students accessing the program, we require sponsorship. What makes this

sponsorship opportunity unique is that, rather than standard financial or material sponsorship, we require sponsorship in the form of pool access. Two of our existing programs are run in villa pools, the use of which has been donated by villa owners who want to support the children and young people in their local communities in Bali. Without this support, the programs would not be as successful – as transport and pool entry costs would limit the number of students that can participate. The programs we run are for a limited amount of sessions per month, and dates and times are planed in consultation with the villa owners; usually a program runs for 2-4 hours per month, as fortnightly or monthly visits. In order to expand our program, and provide these essential life-saving skills to a greater number of children with disabilities in Bali, we are currently seeking expressions of interest from villa owners who would like to support our program by donating use of their pool for a specified period of time per month. As discussed previously, the dates and times of the program would be planed in negotiation with the owners. In gratitude for this support we would mention the sponsorship on our website and in our publications. If you have a pool, and would be interested donating poolaccess for few hours per month, we would love to hear from you! This is a somewhat unique and unconventional form of sponsorship, however it is one that can make a significant difference to the health and safety of children and young people with disabilities in your local community. To discuss this opportunity further, or if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at or Erin P Greaves Youth Sport Program Developer Swimming and water Safety for Children and Young People with Disabilities Yayasan Damai Olahraga Bali/Bali Sports Foundation

Root Bound Plants and Root Pruning

“Hi Kris, I’m Filip. 16 years old, I’ve lived in Bali since I was born. A few years ago my grandmother introduced me to gardening and taught me to appreciate plants and nature. I began taking care of the little potted plants on the terrace and I soon spent hours taking care of all plants around my house. I knew that other than drawing and writing I loved plants and appreciated nature very much. I spoke to local gardeners and discussed many things with them, did internet research, read books, and at the same time put the theory into practice. Then, just a few months ago I read your article and was pretty appalled and interested, so I read more and more of your stuff. :) I have a question. I have many large plants and small plants potted around my garden. Many have their roots already growing into the soil, beyond the pots. But, the rest aren’t. They have been like this for over 10 years. Should I replace the soil? But, it’ll be difficult and very tough work and many of the pots would break because they’re old. Would it be as good if I just fertilised them with chemicals according to the plant types and what nutrient they’re missing? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Filip” Thank you for the question Filip, it’s good to know that there are young people out there just as enthusiastic about gardening as I am. The question that you ask is about your plants outgrowing their pots, in other words, the plant has become “root bound”. This is a very good question and it is a very common problem encountered by all gardeners at some point. Common indicators of a root bound plant are: - The pot has been filled with roots and there is very little soil left, or the roots are growing out of the drainage holes - When you water, it goes right through and drains out, nothing is retained. - The plant is top heavy or too big for the size of the container - The roots are cracking the pot A plant that has become root bound has outgrown the capacity of the pot to sustain its needs for nutrients and hydration. As a plant grows in a pot it will eventually reach a stage where the roots simply run out of space. When this happens you will start to see roots protruding from the drainage holes of your pot. If you do not put the plant into a larger pot the roots will start to grow around the inside edges of the pot and wrap back around themselves in a desperate search for extra nutrients and water. In effect the plant can end up strangling its own roots, and strangling itself. At the very least growth will be affected, in the worst case the plant could die. Fertilizer won’t really help with this problem as plants absorb the fertilizer through the soil, and a root bound plant has little soil volume left. In your case the potted plants sit on top of soil so some of the roots have grown through the drainage holes into the soil which may have helped your plants slightly. The fact that roots have grown from the pots into the ground is the prime indicator that your plant is root bound. You also say you are worried about breaking the pots because they’re old, perhaps they have already cracked due to the force of the roots trying to escape. So the solution is to either repot your plants in a larger container, or to plant them in the ground. You need to free the roots so that they have space to grow out from each other, rather than have them strangling themselves within the pot. You say that some of the plants have roots growing into the soil beneath them, so you could plant them into the ground directly where they sit.

To replant you will need to prepare a larger pot or a hole in the ground for the plant to go. Get ready to re-pot by adding potting mix to the bottom of your container. Add enough soil so that your root ball will sit on the soil and the top of the plant is about an inch below the rim of your pot. Give the root bound plants a good soaking with water a few hours before. You will have to cut some of the roots back, and plants will withstand root damage and respond much better if they are wet. Root bound plants must be root pruned to re-establish proper growth. If you simply re-pot with no root pruning, the plant will keep strangling itself, whether in the ground or another pot. To begin take the plant out of its pot. When you remove the plant you will notice the roots growing around themselves in a circular pattern. You will need to rub your hands around the edges to tease out and untangle the roots as much as you can gradually working from the outside inwards and spreading the roots. You don’t have to be too fussy and don’t worry about damaging the tangled roots as they’re useless in their current state anyway. Knock off the old soil, unwind circling roots and cut off any that look rotten dry or extra long. Leave the innermost part of the root ball. You have to proceed slowly and carefully when root pruning as you do not want to damage the bottom of the trunk. Don’t worry if you lose some of the soil in the process. You should be left with a mass of roots of varying lengths. Trim them back and untangle them to a neat shape. Think of it as untangling a knotty head of hair, and then cutting it back to look neat and tidy. Basically you are just loosening the outer roots of the root ball, so that, once in the ground, the roots of the plant can resume normal growth patterns. Put the root pruned plant in the new location or pot and fill with soil and water well. Depending on the severity of the problem and the size of the plant this procedure can be quite stressful so you should ideally give your plant a half dose of fertilizer and keep the soil moist at least for a week or two, so that it can recover and thrive.

C/Ho/G-24 August 11

If your plants are large get someone to help you, but for your average pot plant I don’t think it would be too difficult a task for you to do on your own, actually it can be quite fun teasing out the roots trimming them and repotting your plant. It will only take a few extra minutes more than if you do a normal re-potting, and you will gain instant satisfaction, as well as see the benefits within a few days or weeks as your plant will begin to grow again. Once you have done it a few times you will be an expert, so just give it a go and get your plants back to growing at their full potential. I assure you that every gardener has dealt with root bound plants, and root pruning is a skill that every gardener should have within his or her knowledge repertoire, and is a required skill of any one dealing with bonsai. I hope that this information has helped and keep up the good work in the garden Filip!

Say What? C/Ho/I-28 Dec11

Question: We are the parents of a 19-year old son with a girlfriend we don’t like, and we don’t know what to do about our son. For the time being, he is in college, and we provide everything for him, including his car, cell phone, money etc. He has had this girlfriend for about a year. She is 17, is still in high school, and has been trouble from day one. We told them both that they could see each other as long as it did not interfere with his grades at college. We have been more than fair with them and have tried everything from letting them see each other, to forbidding them to see each other, to letting them see each other with certain rules and limitations. Our son still lives at home with us and was abiding by our few simple guidelines until he broke one of them. His dad gave him an ultimatum: either get rid of the girl, or get out of our house. His girlfriend has no respect for us, for our younger son, or for our rules. Her mom caters to the two of them and encourages them to be together. We thought that, as time passed, our son would realize that this girl is no good. We told him in the beginning that, by our standards and our observations of her actions, she would cause him to lose everything if he was not careful. She is immature, and our son is also immature. We have taken everything from him to the point at which all he has left are his clothes and his job. We want him to stay in school, and we realize everything this girl has done. She is constantly creating drama in our household and is no longer allowed to come to visit or to be around us because of all that has gone on. Should we just let him go to learn for himself? Thank you for you opinion. Dr. ZZ: You are not the only parents who dislike their son’s girlfriend, and who think that forbidding the two of them from seeing each other is going to work to minimize their involvement. Wrong! It doesn’t work that way. Even if you elect to somehow take away your son’s clothes and job, he will manage to see this girl. Rather than tear them apart, your actions are pushing them closer together while building a rift between you and your son. At his age, he probably thinks he knows a lot more than he does. He also probably thinks he loves the girl more than he does. Chances are he is immature because of your not letting him make his own decisions when he was younger. This has lead to his lack of an element of wisdom that might otherwise lead to maturity.

The only winning strategy for you at this point is to stop worrying about the girlfriend. Even if you are right, and your son is completely wrong, you need to stop worrying about her. It’s time to let your son make his own mistakes. Trying to force the two of them apart hasn’t worked, and the mark of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. Let go of the need to control his life; do not set rules for him; do not give him ultimatums; be kind to her; be kind to him. Let your son find his own way in matters of the heart. If she is as bad as you say, and if you let up a little on your need to control, chances are your son will eventually come around. Just accept the situation, and be the best parents you can be. If you have raised him well – and it sounds as if you have – he will make the correct decisions or learn from his mistakes. As for his schooling, ultimatums burn bridges, and the path between you and your son is not a bridge you care to burn. If you want your son to go to college and be successful, and if you are able to provide him with the financial support to do that, then don’t tangle finances with strings that will make him bitter in the end. He is in college now and must learn to make his own decisions. You can give advice when he asks it, and possibly even when he doesn’t ask, but you have to let him make his own way, staying available to pick him up and dust him off in the end if he falls.

Question: I am a manager of an office of 5 people and took everyone out to a movie last night – my treat. At the end of the evening, I was slightly offended when not a single soul said thank you. Is it strange for me to think of this as a common component of courtesy? Dr. ZZ: You are correct. A simple thank you would have been proper in this instance. Unfortunately, there has been a decline in etiquette these days. This can be especially true in the workplace where people sometimes expect too many things to be given to them. To some people, a good deed is not seen as that; it is seen as an “entitlement.” The best advice in this situation is not to harbor bitterness for those who do not know everyday manners, or who are unable to show gratitude. Be thankful instead that you know how to conduct yourself, and that you are spreading this spirit. As Ghandi said: “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” Let others learn from your example.

“A Drinkers Guide to Air Conditioners” The Basic Principle of an Air Conditioner An air conditioner works by moving heat from inside your house to outside using a process of evaporating and condensing a liquid. Lost already? Yes I know it does sound a bit cryptic doesn’t it. To understand this basic principle let us look at what happens when you crawl out of bed in the morning with one of those red wine mouths that feels like you ate something scraped from a matador’s jockstrap, you desperately want a drink. You put water in the kettle and heat it up. Once it gets up to boiling point (100 degrees centigrade of course) the water doesn’t get any hotter, it does, however, carry on absorbing heat but the heat energy doesn’t increase the temperature any more. Instead the heat is used to evaporate the water changing it from a liquid into a gas, the water boils into steam. Not that you would care much at the time but in fact the steam is still at 1000C. It takes a lot of heat to evaporate the water and this is known as the latent (hidden) heat of vaporisation. As you reach for the ice blocks to stick on your throbbing brow you perhaps could feel a tad grateful for the existence of water and also note that changing the form of water from ice to liquid is a similar process, heat is needed to melt the ice changing its state without changing its temperature, this is known as the latent heat of fusion. As the ice melts it draws heat from your head. Back to our steam and if we cool it down it will lose heat and condense, changing back into water. Today we need to understand that there is another important thing about steam. If we compress it we can force it to turn back into water. If we release the pressure on this hot compressed water it will boil again. If this is all too much for a hangover just go back to bed and don’t worry about it. Now let us see how this principle is applied in an air conditioner. To start with let us take a couple of aspirins then, feeling better, we can find a liquid that boils at a much lower temperature than water. It has to be well below the minimum temperature we want our room to cool down to, let us say minus 41 degrees centigrade, that’s cold enough to freeze the nuts off an eskimo. Obviously at normal igloo temperature this liquid will have boiled into a gas. So, outside our house, we put the gas into a pipe and feed it into a compressor which pumps the gas up to about 45 psi (pounds per square inch) the gas condenses and changes into a liquid. It will give off heat energy and the pipe will get very hot. Now we pick up a large hammer and, trying to forget the headache, we knock a hole in the wall, take a couple more aspirins, let the throbbing subside, then we feed the pipe through the hole and into the house. Here the pipe is connected to a very narrow “capilliary” tube, our blurry eyes make it a little difficult to see but the constriction of this narrow tube keeps the liquid at high pressure on one side while allowing it to slowly run through the tube and into a second wider pipe. As the liquid flows from the narrow tube into the wider pipe the pressure is released and the liquid evaporates sucking heat from the pipe which becomes very cold. By now the headache is back so we make another cup of strong black coffee and then we feed the second pipe back out through the hole in the wall and to the compressor where the gas can be compressed to start the cycle again. By this stage we are struggling so we head off to find a “hare of the dog” in the kitchen.

Now let us do some modifications to make our air conditioner work better. The first thing we can do is put a fan to blow air onto our fevered brow and while we are at it point the fan at the hot pipe as it leaves the compressor, this will blow the heat away into the atmosphere. Another thing we can do is to bend the hot pipe into a coil, this will increase the surface area of the pipe so the fan can cool it down better. If we also add cooling fins to the pipe (like the fins on a motor cycle engine) this will further increase the fan’s ability to cool the pipe. C/BM/G-29 June 11

JOGLOS AND GLADAKS FOR SALE CALL: 0811 - 380 - 1225 C/BM/M-5 Oct 11

We can repeat this to the cold part of the pipe inside of the house just after the narrow tube by adding a fan, coils in the pipe and cooling fins to increase the pipe’s ability to absorb heat from the air in the room. We also have something else to think about here. As the air from the room flows over the evaporation pipe it cools and any humidity in the air condenses into water thereby drying the air and leaving drips of water on the cooling fins. We need to collect this water and install a drain pipe to carry it away. We will now add some further features to improve our air conditioner’s operation: ● We can add an air filter to collect dust from the air inside the room. ● By installing louvres on the inside fan unit we can control the direction the cool air blows in. ● A speed controller on the fan will allow us to set the flow of air to high or low. ● Finally we can add a temperature sensor to switch the compressor off once the inside room is cool enough.

C/BM/U-28Dec. 11

Air conditioners come is several configurations though all work using this basic concept. There are variations most notably: 1. Electronic control circuits and an infra red sensor pick up signals from a remote control and provide the ability to set the temperature, fan speed, operating mode and the swing of the louvres and we can program the timing of on and off switches. 2. More sophisticated air conditioners use a pressure release valve operated by a temperature sensor instead of the narrow “capillary” tube. 3. Inverter air conditioners. In a standard air conditioner the compressor, which pumps the refrigerant around the system, is driven by an electric motor which runs on standard AC (alternating current) electrical supply but this has a serious limitation - the speed cannot be varied, the motor is either on or off so, as the temperature of the room varies, the air conditioner is constantly switching on and off and this creates surges in the electrical supply every time the motor starts up. To get around this problem the latest air conditioners have an inverter to convert the AC (alternating current) supply to DC (direct current) supply. The speed of DC motors can be varied and so the compressor can be slowed down or speeded up according to the amount of cooling required. The air conditioner runs continuously and far more efficiently. We now have an air conditioner and we can go to bed and enjoy the rest of our hangover in a nice cool room.

Lawrence Blair


Ring of Fire

Born during the Blitz, swimming in the Mediterranean when it still had fish in it, schooled in Mexico and France as a boy, Lawrence Blair later pursued an academic career at L a n c a s t e r U n i v e r s i t y, England where he wrote one of the first doctoral thesis that defined the field of p s y c h o - a n t h r o p o l o g y, earning him a PhD. In 1972 Lawrence impulsively gave up the academic life to join his brother Lorne to make make an adventure film in Indonesia. Capturing their experiences in over nine separate expeditions, their five-part documentary film series Ring of Fire: An Indonesian Odyssey was picked up by PBS and the BBC. A condensed four-part television series won two Emmy Awards in l988, bringing the Blairs international acclaim. The series was developed into a book, Ring of Fire: Exploring the Last Remote Places of the World, published in 2010 by EDM. In 2011, Lawrence co-produced Bali - Island of the Dogs, a 55-minute widescreen HD documentary about Bali’s semi-wild dogs. What are your hobbies? Shells, butterflies, scuba diving, boogie boarding, domesticating weird wild animals and somewhat compulsively writing verse. I love living in Ubud, where our house and garden crawls with creatures. Who has deeply influenced you? The 19th Century explorer Alfred Russell Wallace, the prescient 20th Century psychologist Carl Jung, and more closely in time Rupert Sheldrake, the futuristic Cambridge biologist/philosopher who coined the term ‘morphogenetic fields.’ I’m also impressed by James Lovelock who gave us the Gaia Theory, and the late Lyall Watson, the South African biologist/author/explorer who’s left a little-known legacy of mind bending books, still well ahead of their time. If you haven’t heard of them, you will have by 2020, if we’re all still here. Movies? Anything directed by James Cameron, Peter Weir or Ridley Scott. If the truth be known, if you haven’t already gathered that impression, I’m a media addict, an omnivorous devourer of documentaries, films and animated features. They’re the dreams of our planet. Was your Ring of Fire the first book you ever published? In 1976 I published Rhythms of Vision: The Changing Patterns of Belief in which I discussed arcane topics such as sacred geometry, subtle energy, chakras, spiritual planes of existence. The book is perhaps best known for first discussing the Hundredth Monkey Effect and has been compared to the work of the occultist Corinne Heline and the theosophist Alice Bailey. My friend Lyall Watson wrote the book’s Foreword.

Have you made any other films besides Bali - Island of the Dogs? In 2007 I produced Myth, Magic and Monsters, a five-part documentary which explored the world’s rarest and most mysterious reptiles, ocean dwellers and domesticated animals. There are still undiscovered species and tribes of people out there.

What inspired you to make Bali - Island of the Dogs? C/BM/I-25 Jan 12

Making the film about Bali’s unique dogs was a way of seeing a more complete picture both of Bali, and of people’s attitudes, everywhere, to the wild world of the ‘other.’ What is the film about? The film is about the history and place in the local culture of the thousands of semi-feral dogs which roam the island. Bali Dogs have ancient, uninterrupted genetic memories of the evolution of their closest neighboring species, man, and it was this that I wanted to explore. We look at the way these dogs have become woven into the tapestry of the Hindu lifestyle in Bali, the changes in their relationship with human society, and ultimately their importance to genetic science. What’s the most critical question that your film tries to answer? It proposes, yet again, that what we see out there is only what we have in us to see, and that ‘tradition,’ which we hold so sacred, contains both deep truths and pathetic idiocies. It’s useful to note the difference, if we are all to adapt to what’s happening so fast, everywhere on the planet.

C/BM/I-05 Oct 11

How did you come up with the title? Its been floating around for decades, just asking for it. Then my partner on the film, Dean Tolhurst, said it’s about time someone actually made the film about the subject. How was working on Islands of the Dogs different from working on your other films? Most of my work is real adventure filming in remote regions, so it was a joy to be working in my own home island again for the first time since the ‘70s, when few people even knew where or what Bali was. The film is more an adventure of the mind and the feelings, and it was wonderful to explore the wilder parts of Bali once again, and to focus, really for the first time, on these remarkable, beleaguered and resourceful island dogs, which I’d long since only seen as just an inconvenient part of the background. I had no idea, until interviewing genetics experts in the USA, of the crucial importance of Bali’s dogs to our understanding not only of the evolution of dogs everywhere, but of just when humans began populating these southern islands. What was the most technically challenging part of making the film?

Dean, as the director and cameraman, magnificently rose to the challenge of getting the best out of a complex, high definition, state-of-the-art digital camera, while I was challenged by what on earth I was going to say to it, at dawn, before breakfast. Do you personally like dogs? Yes, love ‘em almost as much as cats. As someone said, “a dog comes when you call but a cat takes a message and gets back to you… sometimes.” But it’s nice to be adored for no good reason all the time. I recently had a German Shepherd for seven years, but he died from a cobra bite in the garden. He was love on wheels, but he wasn’t as bright as my parrot Dicky.

by Dr. Rob Bus Stop of Mr. No Man Paintings by Samarpan Elwin At Tonyraka Art Gallery, Jl. Raya Mas 86, Ubud Tel: 7816785 Samarpan Elwin’s paintings, at Tonyraka Art Gallery, are a form of visual beauty that is purely composed of lines and colors. His painterly language relies on his state-of-mind, and is quite perceptive in recording his feelings, sensations, and emotions. His mental condition and sensory sensations are translated into abstract compositions. The intense interplay of lines and colors in his paintings create an impression of a tremendous dynamic of the soul. Color is an important element which generates the power of his works. The vibrant colors of his paintings create a variety of visual expressions that are rich with psychological and emotional charges. His paintings show the capability of color to give birth to a meaningful visual language. In his work, we feel as if there is a pulsating energy formed by his layers of paint which creates visual rhythms laden with meaning. Rather than attempting to interpret or depict reality, Samarpan puts forward expressions of his mental experiences about lived reality which inspired him to paint. The images on his canvases are not the result of observations or meditations on reality, but, rather the result of an He builds a wall in order existential process to give meaning to get a better vision to the perception of reality which settles in his soul. In his paintings, Samarpan does not seek to find the meaning of reality, but to make reality meaningful. Therefore, the titles of his paintings, like: ‘He builds a wall in order to get a better vision’ and ‘The thief enters the house and is cordially received’, show that Samarpan also pursues the same ideals that motivate a poet to write a poem. His paintings record a variety of sensations about reality, but they also reflect a sort of ‘mystical thinking’ that reaches the invisible The thief enters the house dimensions which underlie and is cordially received the order of reality. The depth and sensitivity of Samarpan’s visual expressions, so full of color and deep thought, rise above the limits of the canvases to reveal a deeply spiritual human being. Tanda Hati Group Exhibition of Paintings At Tonyraka Art Gallery, Jl. Raya Mas 86, Ubud Tel: 7816785 The Balinese term ‘Tanda Hati’ can literally be translated as ‘the heart sign’, which comes from a reflection by an artist concerning various kinds of issues or ideas. Every artist can have his or her own ‘heart sign’ as a means to explore socio-cultural aesthetics. ‘Tanda Hati’ isn’t only a form of expression, but it also indicates the existence of the

artist. The exhibition ‘Tanda Hati’, also at Tonyraka Art Gallery, explores the ‘heart signs’ of four artists, who have all participated in exhibitions both in and out of Indonesia. These artists are Ketut Suwidiarta, Wayan Sandika, Wayan Sudarna Putra and Gusti Ngurah Buda. Each of these artists all have a personal style, which comes from the artists’ intelligence and sensitivity in absorbing, responding, and criticizing both internal and external phenomena. The exhibition reveals the ironies which can appear in every aspect of their lives. It is the artists’ testimony on a wide range of issues teasing their consciousness: Ketut Suwidiarta is concerned with issues of globalization. In his work ‘Lost’ he places numerous cross-cultural icons and symbols in a strong nuance of parody. The fallen body of Gajah Mada, in a dashing Lost general’s uniform, is propped up with arrows, just like the scene of Bhisma’s death in the Mahabarata epic, and it is surrounded by mourning celebrities from many different races and countries. Through this work Ketut points out that globalization has caused the borders of myths, epics, ethnics, races, cultures, and nations to be no longer recognizable. Wayan Sandika explores issues and situations experienced in the family unit. In works like ‘Single Parent’ he reflects on the essential communication between parents and their children. Wayan feels that parents can sometimes neglect their children, and the children are left uncontrolled to grow wild, Single Parent while doing many improper things. The children can also unconsciously imitate what their parents do and say. If their parents say something bad, it is pretty sure that their children will do so too. Though, if they are educated with love, the children will grow well. Wayan Sudarna Putra feels that there aren’t many human beings who have the ability to deeply know who they are. Knowing and admitting oneself wholly requires mental readiness, and, people can often be controlled by selfimagery. Sudarna’s work ‘Si Buruk Rupa’ literally means ‘the bad face’, and it is part of his self-recognizing process. There is Si Buruk Rupa a big unanswered question in his mind that becomes the basis of his reflection and curiosity: “Who am I”? Sudarna never gives up chasing his true identity as a human being. His representation of a ‘bad face’ is adapted from his own face, and it is a confession of his imperfections.

Gusti Ngurah Buda utilizes abstracted works, such as ‘Dark Nest’, to come up with ideas related to self-conflict, social-conflict, global crisis, and many other tragedies which Dark Nest have happened on earth recently. The incidents that have occurred in Indonesia, and overseas, are mixed together to form a rather pessimistic point of view, as if there is no way out, or no significant solution to solve the problems. However, Gusti believes that every problem and incident only forces human beings to find remedies that will make them feel more comfortable to keep living on earth.

the art of body Women-specific exercises you should start incorporating today! If you are a woman who wants to tighten the TTT (Tummy, Tush and Thighs) you should start doing these exercises today ABS Mountain Climber with Hands on Swiss Ball The benefit: It’s one of the simplest yet most effective ways to tighten your tummy. In fact, you’ll barely have to move a muscle. How to do it: Assume a pushup position with your arms completely straight, but place your hands on a Swiss ball instead of the floor. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your ankles. Tighten your core and hold it that way for the duration of the exercise [A]. Lift one foot off the floor and slowly raise your knee as close to your chest as you can without changing your lower-back posture. Then repeat with your other leg. Alternate back and forth for 30 seconds. If that’s too hard, place your hands on the floor or a bench, instead of a Swiss ball.

GLUTES Hip Raise The benefit: It targets the muscles of your rear end, which can help make your belly flatter. The reason: When your glutes are weak-as they are in most women-the top of your pelvis tilts forward. This not only places stress on your lower back, but it causes your tummy to stick out-even if you don’t have an ounce of fat. Your fix: the hip raise. How to do it: Lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor [A]. Now brace your core, squeeze your glutes, and raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees [B]. Pause for 3 to 5 seconds-squeezing your glutes tightly the entire time-then lower back to the start.

QUADRICEPS Offset Dumbbell Lunge

Specialized personal resistance training

081 338 314 984

The benefit: Holding a weight on just one side of your body increases the demand placed on your core to keep your body stable. The result: Your hips and abs have to work harder, and you’ll also improve your balance. And better yet, you’ll burn tons of calories. How to do it: Hold a dumbbell in your right hand next to your shoulder, with your arm bent [A]. Step forward with your right leg and lower your body until your right knee is bent at least 90 degrees and your left knee nearly touches the floor [B]. Push yourself back to the starting position. That’s 1 rep. Do all your reps, then repeat with your left leg, while holding the weight in your left hand.

HAMSTRINGS Single-Leg Dumbbell Straight-Leg Deadlift The benefit: Besides targeting your hamstrings, this exercise works your glutes and core. It also helps eliminate muscle imbalances between your legs, reducing your risk of injury. And as a bonus, it can even improve the flexibility of your hamstrings. How to do it: Grab a pair of dumbbells with an overhand grip, and hold them at arm’s length in front your thighs. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and knees slightly bent. Now raise one leg off the floor [A]. Without changing the bend in your knee, bend at your hips (keep your lower back arched), and lower your torso until it’s almost parallel to the floor [B]. Pause, then squeeze your glutes, thrust your hips forward, and raise your torso back to the start.

Health Concerns in Paradise this Month COBRA! It seems that every second person I speak to has a Cobra story this month. Luckily the only injuries reported so far are eye irritations in dogs or cats that have had venom spat at them by the snake. My own dogs found a cobra hiding behind the rubbish bin in my kitchen just last week. We have two kinds of Cobra here in Bali and you don’t want to tangle with either of them. King cobra (Ophiophagus hannah) - Locally known as “lipi uwoh”, or “ular rajah”. This is the largest member of the Cobra family growing to some 6 meters in length. The Cobra is a ground dweller, feeding on small reptiles. The dull brown color easily camouflages this snake, which displays a characteristic hood when it is threatened. The cobra is not usually aggressive, however it will fearlessly stand its ground and strike if provoked. King cobra bites are not common, but when they do occur they are often severe. Approximately 80% of cobra bites envenomate (release venom). 60% of these cases will be fatal if untreated. Bites cause pain and swelling locally as well as dizziness, drooping of the eyelids and shortness of breath & general paralysis occurs as soon as 10 – 15 minutes following the bite. This snake’s venom acts as a “neurotoxin” (attacks the nerves). Javan spitting cobra (Naja sputatrix) – Locally known as “lipi uwoh” or “ular sendok”. The more common of the two snakes is slightly smaller than it’s “king” cousin, and grows up to 1.8 meters in length. A dull brownish black in color it is frequently found in dry rice fields where rodents are plentiful. As for the king cobra, bites from the spitting cobra have a high rate of envenomation, and the poison is often fatal if not treated. This creature has a couple of added extras, like the ability to spit its venom accurately into the eyes of any offender, causing extreme pain and temporary blindness. Bites from this snake often cause the flesh to rot (necrotoxin) at the site of the bite. This snake’s poison is also a neurotoxin causing headache, nausea, abdominal pain, and paralysis from one to 12 hours after being bitten. If you or your pets come face to face with either of these nasty characters, try to get your pets away from the snake, but not at risk of being bitten yourself. If you or your pet have venom in the eyes rinse by pouring generous amounts of saline (if you do not have saline, bottled aqua with a teaspoon of salt will suffice), if a bite occurs seek medical attention immediately. For excellent snake and visual identification information please go to BLOOD, BLOOD, AND MORE BLOOD In the past 3 weeks I have received no less that 4 bulletins requesting donors for Rhesus negative blood types. Fortunately each bulletin has been for a different blood type, nevertheless we have just about exhausted all our registered donors for the rare blood types (Rhesus type negative). I sincerely hope that we do not have more desparate searches for donors this month. I do often receive messages from well meaning friends and relatives requesting that certain blood groups donate for a particular patient, however please be aware that the Red cross will not receive donors for a specified patient until the treating doctor has ordered the blood.

Always call the Red Cross (0361 227224) before you set off to the blood bank to donate blood. If you have any of the rare types – A negative, B negative, AB negative, O negative, or the not so rare B positive & AB Positive you might like to register on our donors list by texting “Donor, Name…….., Blood group……. to 08123660000.” You will be notified when a bulletin request is current for your blood group, but you will never be forced to donate. There is now also a face book page “Bali Blood” which is designed to broadcast blood donor requests. Any one is welcome to join this group whether you are a potential donor or whether you are just willing to assist in broadcasting the request. DENGUE FEVER The rains have slowed down and true to form the Aedes Aegypti mosquitos are back, bringing the inevitable Dengue fever. Dengue fever is a serious viral illness, transmitted by the Aedes Aegypti (Tiger) Mosquito. Dengue occurs in two forms, Dengue Fever, and the more severe Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF). Dengue fever is a severe flu like illness that causes fever mostly in older children and adults, but rarely causes death. DHF is a second more severe form of the disease causing bleeding and shock. Severe cases may be fatal, particularly in children. The symptoms of dengue fever may vary according to the age, and condition of the patient. Should you or your child present with any of the following signs a doctor should be consulted immediately to confirm diagnosis. You can see the full info on Dengue in the archives of “Paradise…in Sickness and in Health” on the Bali Advertiser website. One word of caution, never take Dengue lightly. I so often hear it said that Dengue is “no big deal” and that platelet counts are sure to rise to normal once the fever abates. But make no mistake, Dengue is a killer and just this week a fit, young British girl found herself in intensive care with a seriously low platelet count. While she remained critical for several days, she did pull through. Dengue hemorrhagic fever does not only target the very young, very old, or poorly nourished. Anyone, seemingly without rhyme or reason, can succumb to the disease.

This Herb Can Save Your Life

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

There are thousands of herbs available that claim to possess all sorts of wonderful health improving benefits, and whilst many do work wonderfully well there is one in particular which is literally a life saver. If there is one herb you should know about it is this one. Cayenne – Wonder Herb This is the most valuable herb in the herb kingdom according to many herbalists. Cayenne has gained the reputation of being a wonder herb over the past few decades. Dr Richard Schulze, a notable medical herbalist and naturopath, stated, “If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other.” Cayenne Pepper is a herb made from the dried pods of chili peppers. Besides being a very popular spice in cooking, cayenne has also been used medicinally for thousands of years. It is a nutritional herb containing high levels of vitamins A & C, and it also has the complete B complexes. It is also very rich in organic calcium and potassium, which is one of the reasons it is good for the heart. It useful for many different types of health problems, the most significant ones being listed below. Digestion Cayenne helps the body to create hydrochloric acid, which is necessary for the initial breakdown of proteins within the stomach. Low acid is a common condition as we age and often produces the symptoms of reflux and discomfort after meals containing proteins. Failure to breakdown proteins will then lead to large particles of protein travelling through your intestines, which will not be absorbed easily leading to protein deficiency symptoms. Low hydrochloric acid also increases your risk of fungal (yeast) and bacterial infections in your intestinal tract (and the rest of your body) because the acid is your first line of defence against these organisms and will usually keep them at bay very well. It has been shown that people with recurrent fungal or candida infections have low hydrochloric acid in their stomach. Cayenne also assists the repair of the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines as well as improving assimilation of food and also elimination of waste matter. The digestive system plays a crucial role in nourishing the whole body so is therefore very important for good mental, emotional and physical health. Cayenne can greatly improve the health of your digestive system and hence of your overall health and wellbeing. Heart I believe that the most significant health benefits of cayenne are due to its ability to stop a heart attack or stroke. Dr Richard Anderson, author of “Cleanse & Purify Thyself,” reported that one of his fellow doctors rushed out into the parking lot to attend to a man who had a heart attack while parking his car. The doctor put cayenne tincture into the mouth of the man, and within a few minutes, the man’s heart started beating again. Dr. John Christopher, pioneer of herbal medicine also says, “In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in-if they are still breathing-I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water), and within minutes they are up and around.” Cayenne has been known to stop heart attacks within 30 seconds. For example, when a 90-year-old man in Oregon had a severe heart attack and became unconscious, his daughter was able to get cayenne extract into his mouth: within a few minutes, he regained consciousness. On the way to the hospital, he remained in a semi-conscious state, but the daughter kept giving him the cayenne extract. By the time they got to the hospital, he had fully recovered and wanted to go home and mow the lawn. The doctor asked what she had given him, as he said it was the closest thing to a miracle he had ever seen.

If a heart attack should occur, it is suggested that a teaspoon of extract be given every 15 minutes or a teaspoon of cayenne in a glass of hot water be taken until the crisis has passed. The capsaicin in cayenne pepper is unrivalled in its ability to boost circulation and increase heart action. It has a mechanism of action that has the extraordinary ability to enhance cardiovascular performance while actually lowering blood pressure. Capsaicin has an energizing effect on the entire cardiovascular system.

ASIALIFE INTERNATIONAL HEALTH PLANS Monthly, quarterly, or annual payment systems


Dr Anderson feels that cayenne strengthens the heart and could possibly even prevent heart attacks. He routinely carries capsules of cayenne with him in the car and whenever he goes hiking, mountain climbing or backpacking. “You never know when you may find someone having a heart attack,” he says. Others believe that cayenne capsules are not as effective as cayenne tinctures or cayenne powder in emergency situations, such as in the event of a heart attack or stroke. If a heart attack or stroke should occur and the person is conscious, it is suggested that 5 to 10 droppers-full of cayenne pepper tincture (or 1 teaspoon of cayenne powder in a glass of hot water) be administered into the mouth, and repeated every 15 minutes until the crisis has passed.

Of course in any emergency situation you should call an ambulance to rush the person to hospital immediately despite taking the above steps. Cayenne is a powerful herb that just very well may save your life. It could well be wise to have some of this tincture or powder close to you at all times.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

The Ubud Success Story! Restaurants come and restaurants go. Bali is no different to anywhere else in the world. Although sometimes in Bali the reason for a restaurant’s success or failure can appear to be a mystery. Ones that you enjoy can disappear and others you would never return to continue and even prosper. A narrow and steep roadway leads up to what used to be rice paddies. Years ago, a little shack on this road housed one of Ubud’s few internet cafes. Unique in that the local and very inquisitive ducks used to waddle in and out, leaving their muddy trail behind them, whilst you were battling with your e-mails. This internet shack has moved to a real building not far away and the rice paddies and the ducks have disappeared. Jln. Bisma climbs the short hill beside Miro’s Cafe from Jln. Raya Ubud. Amongst the new boutique hotels, guesthouses and home stays is an attractive modern hideaway, Cafe des Artistes. Part indoor and part garden setting, it is a tranquil spot with more than a western touch. I first dined here in 2003 and hearing that the owner was Belgian, and as I once lived in Belgium, I described anything that even half resembled dishes that I knew as being of Belgian influence. At the time I heard that the owner was not too impressed as he was trying to establish an International restaurant. I think I was right as there are now a number of pure Belgian dishes on the menu [and even Belgian beers] and the guttural sounds of Flemish or the sometimes softer strains of pure Dutch are now heard here almost every night! Toast aux Champignons [sliced mushrooms and onions heaped high on good quality brown toast] is joined with a Pate des Ardennes on the entrée list. The Escargots are done Bourguignonne style in garlic and herb butter baked in the oven. A standard main is that famous black beer dish from Flanders, on the menu here in the French language of the other half of Belgium, Carbonades a la Flamande, and sometime on special is that classic Flemish dish Waterzooi, chicken and vegetables cooked in cream and herbs. If you pre-order you can have a Belgian style Steak Tartare [for a min of 2 persons], chopped tenderloin steak served raw with capers, red and white onions, gherkins, French mustard and a raw egg yolk. However CDA or ‘Café des’ as the locals call it, offers wonderful tastes from many origins, and all at budget prices. Could this be the reason that you now need a reservation almost any day of the year, irrespective of so called high or low seasons, if you wish to dine in the early evening? The range of entrees is all encompassing. They offer an excellent Tuna Carpaccio, it is in a marinade of ginger, citrus and garlic, topped with a crisp green salad. A Salad of Pear and Blue Cheese, sprinkled with sun-dried tomatoes, dried apricots and pine nuts. Goat Cheese Piperade is served with marinated capsicum and tomato on brown toast, topped with honey and toasted sesame seeds. Steaks are probably their most popular dish and for me that means Steak Roquefort with that unique cheese sauce. Others may prefer the Cafe de Paris, Archiduc, Poivre Crème or Provencale sauces but it is Roquefort for me, every time. No the steak is NOT imported, and it does not cost Rp.300,000++ [actually about on third of that] but most customers and even

visiting chefs are amazed at the quality. The sourcing of local high quality fresh ingredients should always be the first choice for any restaurant! Strangely, some places seem to feel naked without that imported tag on every 2nd line of their menu! Chicken Breasts are grilled [skin on to retain the juices, so not the usual ‘Bali Dry’] and can be combined with many sauces. Our favourite is Provencal with its mix of capsicums, onions and mushrooms and of course, those herbes de Provence. Almost every Bali restaurant should have a few local dishes on their menu, both for tourists to try and more importantly to make the visit more comfortable for locals who are invited to join the table and do not necessarily understand western food. CDA does that in style with a Nasi Goreng with shredded chicken and vegetables, pre-tossed with a dash of kecap manis [two chicken sate sticks on top as well], a dish that even the locals love. Their Sapi Rendang opts for the Sumatran spices to be in coconut milk as a sauce rather than dried on and pre-cooked as in the Padang food outlets all over Bali, normally served with rice but goes well with mashed potato to soak up the remaining sauce which has quite an after taste, more than a touch of chilli. A surprising section on this menu is their Thai Corner. Star attraction is one of the best Yam Neau, Thai beef salad, that I have ever had. Long thin slices of cool cucumber strips intermingled with pieces of warm marinated beef, crushed peanuts, chilli and things. I wrap the cucumber slice around my fork, pasta style, then stab a piece of meat thus getting the complete taste, Thai style. An even more exciting dish is their one month a year special of Thai Lemon Chicken, crumbed breast served with a very Thai hot and sour shredded green mango salad and a piquant lemon sauce.

King Prawns, big and juicy, are grilled and served as entrée or main [‘Diabolique’ with tomato, capsicum and brandy cream or ‘a l’ail’ with garlic butter], I prefer mine with the sauce separate for dipping, not so messy when you peel them. Desserts are simple, and ice cream combinations abound. The Ice cream Café des Artistes is one of their best, combined with local fruits, brandy and a strawberry sauce. That French special Crepes Suzette or a Cheese Platter. They have a very good wine list, and a relaxing atmosphere to finish off a most pleasant experience. Good quality homely food, at very reasonable prices is always welcome. Particularly so when served by friendly non-intrusive staff, and the young vibrant staff here are amongst the best. Cafe des Artistes became our ‘Best Value New Restaurant’ of 2003, and it just keeps on getting better all the time. People often ask me what makes a successful restaurant, well Café des Artistes ticks just about all of the boxes. For a non-specific cuisine, comfort food, recognizable to all no matter from which country they originate, fresh local ingredients cooked ‘a la minute’, a young staff mix, almost as fresh as the ingredients, who are forever smiling and making you feel at home and a restaurant ambience that appeals to all. But perhaps the most important ingredient is the host extraordinaire, the genial Rudy Kerremans, in attendance almost every day, lunch and dinner. Don’t forget to make that reservation first.

Square is Lombok’s leading stand-alone restaurant, it is in central Senggigi. Square has led the way in attempting to present a fine dining cuisine level outside of the comfort of being part of a 5 star hotel with ready made in house guests. New Executive Chef Made Suyana [ex Amanwana and Amanjiwo] is another step in the right direction with top quality offerings that across the water in Bali would cost much more for the same dish. A wonderful entrée is the Goat Cheese Soufflé, double cheese cream, green oil and selected herbs are combined in a mini classic soufflé. Another is of Prawn with avocado, fresh fennel and pomegranate vinaigrette [pictured]. Pumpkin Soup with a difference, this one is with sweet prawns marinated in a Madras curry, and basil oil. The new mains are equally impressive. The Lamb Ballotine uses imported shoulder meat marinated with mustard seed, garlic and rosemary, boned, rolled and stuffed, then roasted in the oven. Chicken Breast is marinated with five spices and orange zest served with a mash of roasted garlic, green onion and ginger relish. The Mahi-Mahi is simply grilled, served on a scallion mash with sautéed bok choy, a tapenade of beetroot and lemon and garlic butter sauce. Even local dishes get a make-over, a kitchen produced Sasak special Ayam Taliwang [chicken marinated in candle nut, garlic, dried red chilli and shrimp paste] and from Sumbawa, Singang Ikan [fillet of fish in turmeric, garlic, candle nut sauce and tamarind infusion]. Fine dining in Lombok!

Wild Ginger is a small family run warung, on Jln. Jero Jadung, Ubud, with mother in the kitchen. Simple food but with a special touch that is not usually found in small warungs. Most dishes are traditional Balinese but there are a few ring-ins such as the deep-fried Sweet Potato Chips which are very popular and often served with another non-local appetizer, guacamole. Soups [classic Soto Ayam, Vegetable or Chicken] are all served with rice, eat it separately or add it to the soup as the locals do. A small menu of Vegetarian [tempe/tofu curry] and Balinese meat dishes [chef Putu’s version of Babi Kecap or the unique Ayam Kecap]. Wild Ginger is currently ranked No.1, the Best Restaurant [out of 192] in Ubud, by the controversial Trip Advisor. Whilst Wild Ginger is a very fine small local warung that rating again highlights the absurdity of Trip Advisor’s non-weighted ranking system where a handful of ‘excellent’ reports can rate any place above world-class dining establishments. Previous No.1’s in Ubud [for a short time only] included a Gelato shop. How can anyone take that seriously? Not to detract from the excellent great value of Wild Ginger.

Kaito Dining is the new name for what was Café Ochanoma. Once a thriving

good value Japanese restaurant on The ByPass, as it passes through Jimbaran, it now classifies itself as Japanese Western. I expected some sort of ‘fusion’ but instead discovered a menu of mostly western dishes, but all done the ‘Japanese way’! To call it ‘different’, would be to say the least. Chicken in the Basket, a plate of Assorted Sausages, Fish & Chips and even Proscuitto e Melone! However a few traditional Japanese things do survive on the menu; a plate of Edamame Beans, very Japanese looking Pork and Chicken Cutlets, Ginger Pork and Ome Rice. However Western dishes do dominate with salads, spaghetti, a series of Gratin dishes [Seafood & Macaroni, Doria Gratin and a Potato Cheese]. There is even a Hamburger Steak covered with thick sauce and fried egg. Then there are a few puzzles such as the Rice with ‘Hushed’ Beef, east or west?

Lamak was one of the trail blazers, bringing fine dining to Ubud with its unique blend of traditional French dishes combined with the subtle herbs and spices of Asia backed by a kitchen fit-out and staff worthy of a 5 star hotel. February 14, 2012, Valentine’s Day, was its 10th anniversary. So many restaurants in Bali have not even lasted one year let alone ten! During the past few years Ubud has experienced a marked change in their tourist mix with more and more of them seeking the middle of the road ‘comfort food of suburbia’, yet Lamak has stayed true to its brief and continues to present their high quality cuisine for those who can appreciate it. Six years ago Lamak also commenced an Ubud Wine Club under the guidance of their wine-loving General Manager, Roland Lickert. In recent years it has become increasingly difficult to procure interesting new quality wines at reasonable prices, every month. This mantle will now pass to the CasCades restaurant at The Viceroy to where the Wine Club moves after its final dinner at Lamak in March. The members owe thanks to Roland for his tireless efforts in encouraging this small band of gastronomes to explore the wines of the world.

had been one of the better new restaurants to open in Ubud in recent times. A classic riverside building was tastefully renovated so as not to lose its Bali charm and converted into a very fine restaurant. I go there for one entrée of which I could never tire; their Roasted Beetroot [strangely referred to as a Goat Cheese Soufflee on the menu], a beetroot hollowed out and filled with a goat cheese infused cream, roasted in the oven and served topped with crisp prosciutto. Bridges is spread over 5 levels [soon to be 7] and they are about to develop the lower ones. One floor will be a romantic bar, and they have just launched a worldwide design contest to create it with a prize pool of $US50,000. You can read all about it on

Three Monkeys, the popular Ubud café, has opened an outlet on Jln. Danau Tamblingan, Sanur. It is architecturally impressive, consisting of split levels of enclosed and open terrace spaces. Snacks, light and main meals are all available. You can snack on their Mezze with Fava, Skordalia, Houmus, Baba Ganoush and Roasted Beetroot dips. Interesting Bruschettas include a pumpkin with rucola and feta, Lumpia Semarang [chicken and bamboo shoots], Vietnamese Prawn Rice Paper Rolls and Chilli Salted Squid. Salads are many such as fried Halloumi cheese with asparagus and honeyed endive]. A refreshing Carpaccio is made of ginger-cured salmon. The Beef Sate uses Wagyu beef. Mains include a slow cooked Lamb Curry, the meat cut from the shank. Pan-fried Snapper is in a lemon and caper sauce. Lamb Kefte, middle-eastern style, is with a salad of tomato and mint. From the wood-fired oven comes their Rack of Lamb, basted with Dijon mustard, honey, orange juice and thyme. Chicken Thighs are in grain mustard and Pork Belly in a pomegranate glaze. Finish with a yummy dessert of Apple, Berry and Ginger Crumble, with ice cream. Gerry Williams For more information see our website: C/R/G-7 March 12

Changing Faces with a Smile Healthcare for people with craniofacial disabilities By Skye Laphroaig

“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. “ ~Mother Teresa. Mary Northmore-Aziz is a long-term resident of Bali and Indonesian citizen who was recently at Buckingham Palace to receive her Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE). “Indonesians are wonderful people, wonderful people,” Britain’s Prince Charles told Mary Northmore. British-born Northmore arrived in Indonesia more than two decades ago where she met her late husband, artist Abdul Aziz during a vacation to Bali. Mary founded the Smile Foundation of Bali (Yayasan Senyum) in 2005, a non-profit organisation helping people with craniofacial disabilities obtain health care. The cause of a cleft lip or palate isn’t known, but malnutrition and lack of folic acid in the mothers diet may be factors. Some deformities such as cleft lip are relatively easy to repair whereas cleft palate (when the tissue at the top of the mouth has failed to close) requires restructure of tissues, and possibly teeth, hearing and ability to speak. Without surgery these children will not lead normal lives. The efforts of the Smile Foundation depend heavily on the skills of one of the world’s greatest plastic surgeons, Professor David J David of the Royal Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital. He has been coming to Indonesia for over 30 years, pushing for better care on behalf of people with craniofacial problems and is still working very hard despite being 70 years of age. Dr David continues his association as chief advisor to the foundation. The global fund-raising body covering expenses for cleft lip and palate operations is called ‘Smile Train’ and they support local sustainability and also help with training and public awareness programmes. ‘Smile House’ was donated by the Benjamin Foundation (a private Dutch foundation) and is where patients stay during treatment. They also pay costs for under 18’s to go to Adelaide for operations when necessary. THE JOY OF SMILING The ability to smile is a global signal of friendship and happiness - a common language for everyone. When you smile at someone the chances are, they will smile back making us feel good, increasing our ability to think holistically. So how exactly does social disfigurement disturb social interactions? Faces are the first feature we see when meeting someone and we have to learn not to recoil, but to look beyond the difference and see the familiar. We live in a culture where disfigurement is often seen as a medical ‘problem’ that should be fixed by surgery or medical intervention. However, surgery alone cannot always remove a disfigurement and can sometimes lead to further complications. The psychological effects of disfigurement, whether acquired from birth, an accident, disease, or the aftermath of surgery, can last a lifetime if not dealt with early on. In a culture, which is increasingly obsessed with appearance and makes value judgements based on what people look like, people with disfigurements can often be rejected and treated as inferior, ‘abnormal’, less valuable and less able to achieve. Children have to deal with other people’s pre-occupation with their appearance on a daily basis and staring, comments, ostracism and bullying can regularly occur. Education professionals have a vital role to play in reassuring children and young people with these disfigurements. FUNDING AND OPERATION Much of the foundations funding comes from donations from both individuals and organizations. For example, the Australian Consulate General in Bali, working with the Smile Foundation, provided funding for seventy children to have craniofacial surgery in 2006. Charity events, such as Adam Gyorgy’s piano performance in 2006, and the Commonwealth Bank WTA tennis tournament in 2011 are also important to the foundation. In many countries, craniofacial disabilities are treated shortly after birth; this is not necessarily the case in Eastern Indonesia. Craniofacial disabilities are not only disfiguring, but can also lead to difficulties with nutrition and communication. Patients generally come from very poor families but sometimes there’s little access to any health care due to the remoteness of their communities. Yayasan Senyum Bali manages a Patient Recall System for patients to enable them to attend subsequent operations, check-ups and

ongoing treatment at hospitals where their operations were performed to enable them to access ongoing health care. A high percentage of patients with cleft lip abnormalities usually need follow up operations for cleft palate or further appointments for dental work or speech and sometimes hearing therapy.

problems and to malnutrition. There are special feeding bottles, which we can give mothers to help but basically the baby needs an operation as quickly as possible, but of course a baby has to be strong and healthy to undergo surgery. It’s a challenge for our doctors.

IMPROVING LIVES AT SMILE HOUSE After extensive fundraising, the “Smile House” was opened in January 2007 and is situated next to Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar, providing comfortable accommodation and educational facilities. Dr. David and his anaesthetist travel to Indonesia to hold clinics, perform life-changing surgery and train local staff in special procedures. Patients spent two or three days in hospital for postoperative care then return to Smile House for a similar period of time of recuperation before returning to their villages by boat or plane with their escort. Smile House is a clean and cheerful residence, managed by Rusmini, whose own facial deformity was repaired in Adelaide. She is the cook at Smile House and serves to reassure patients travelling to Australia for the first time. During my visit I was greeted by many smiling faces, most of which were recall patients. Many of the people requiring treatment have trouble completing admission forms and understanding the processes. In addition, many patients have not previously left their home villages, making the experience particularly difficult and traumatic. A co-ordinator is on hand to walk the patients through medical procedures such as x-rays, giving blood, emotional and logistical support and necessary arrangements for visits to Australia including passport applications, visas and flights on behalf of patients and their attending family.

Do people experience economic difficulties in terms of employment for those with visible differences within a developing world? Yes, I am sure they do, all over the world, in fact here you see employment ads so often say “Pleasant appearance” and that actually conveys all sorts of assumptions. What is the percentage of people in Indonesia with facial disfigurements? We really don’t know but it must be lots. The global figure for cleft is 1 per 600 births. A major problem we have is that for many years, people in eastern Indonesia have had very little health service, so there must be a huge backlog, and of course if a problem does not get immediate treatment it becomes bigger and more damaging. Finding these people is a challenge so we employ outreach workers who actively look for people who want and need our help. Tell me about the Hard Rock Café Rock N Run event. Each year Hard Rock Hotel in Bali hold a ‘Rock N Run’ event and raise funds for craniofacial surgery. They are amazing and the event this last November raised a really significant amount. The organisers and runners are all heroes! Tell me about your great Yayasan Senyum logo, who designed that? Isn’t it beautiful? It was designed by our Board member, Eko Prabowo who I think is a brilliant graphic designer.

ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE I recently had the opportunity to speak with Mary Northmore-Aziz, founder of Yayasan Senyum Bali and report first hand on what’s required to send urgent cases to Adelaide this year. Mary was born in an English country town and from a young age decided to teach English abroad. She came to Bali as a result of a friend recommending the art of Ubud and met her late husband Abdul Aziz, one of the great Indonesian artists. Her contribution to the health and happiness of disadvantaged people earned her recognition in the Queens New Years Honours list on June 22, 2011. Mary also founded the Seniwati Gallery for women’s art and has been tireless in her pursuit of good causes. I ask Mary to answer some key questions for our readers. Tell me about meeting Prince Charles and receiving the MBE, what did he say and was Camilla there? No Camilla but he was very pleasant, asked how long I have lived in Bali and said ”Wonderful people, wonderful people” so I pointed out it was about time he came to Bali again! I hear Camilla’s brother has a place here. May I ask about your late husband and whether you still feel his presence watching over your progress? I feel him as a presence in my life always and run ideas past him for his approval, but it’s ten years since he passed away so he is fading. What lead you on this path to setting up the Foundation? Dr David asked me to and the timing was right. I trusted him even though I really had little idea what he was talking about, then as I started so ‘see’ the problem I understood what was needed and how it might be organised. I also had amazing support from a couple of people, totally committed and driven to help. Do you help Indonesians beyond Bali? Yes, we cover Nusa Tenggara Timur (NNT) and West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Lombok, Sumba, Sumbawa, Flores and West Timor. What was happening to your clients before the Smile Foundation came along? A few did get operations if they were in the right place at the right time but basically they just had to live with it. I am sure many babies died – so sad! How do you feed a cleft baby? It requires a lot of patience. In particular a cleft palate is a very dangerous problem because the baby has no suction and also the milk may go down the wrong way, leading to lung/breathing

Describe your involvement with the Seniwati Gallery for Women? Well, twenty years ago people were denying the existence of women artists despite the Balinese people being famed for the art skills. So I decided to change that – now I hope no one denies them. We have supported hundreds of talented girls in our little ‘Sanggar’ workshop, and we have brought together hundreds of wonderful paintings and happy owners. For me personally, it has been a great way to get to know the real life of Balinese women, behind the tourist cliché. Are clients sometimes wary of the operations and scared of going to Australia, thinking they may never come back? In the beginning they were but now we have sent so many and they all came back ‘better’ so communities now trust us. Also everyone now has a mobile phone and can stay in touch despite the distance. Do you think people’s appearance is directly connected to their self-esteem? We all know how hard it is to feel happy if you feel unattractive, so imagine how hard it must be when there is no end in sight. How important is the Smile Shop in Ubud for financial support? The Smile Shop is r e a l l y, r e a l l y important for us. The staff and volunteers raise enough to pay our administrative s t a ff s a l a r i e s s o sponsors are delighted that we only ask for money for patients, but they also perform two other very important functions: public awareness of our work, and recycling pre-loved (and sometimes brand-new) goods. Smile Shop in Ubud, opened in December 2006 and has proved an essential fund raising arm for the Yayasan. The shop is always in need of support, so please help by donating money, goods for resale or donating your time as a volunteer at the Smile Shop. (Open Tues-Sat 10-4, Sun 12-4, closed Mondays). To date, the Smile Foundation has assisted more than 1,000 people in cranial facial reconstructions. Copyright © 2012 Bali Advertiser You can read all past articles of BA Feature Article at

It may be easier to remember the common safe file types: Safe File Extensions

These days most dangerous programs (Viruses, Trojans and Worms) are spread through email message attachments. How do Viruses, Trojans and Worms spread through email. An email arrives with an attached file that has a misleading file name or a message subject/body that entices people to open the attachment. Regardless of what the attachment appears to be at first glance, the attachment is a program and opening the attachment runs the program and infects the system. Once the system is infected the worm often searches the system for email addresses and forwards itself to any found addresses. Many of these dangerous programs may modify or delete files on the system, or even erase the entire hard drive. How to identify executable file types. Computers running Microsoft’s Windows operating systems use a three letter identifier added to file names after a period (.) to identify a file’s type. When a file or message attachment is opened the file extension is used to decide what program should be used to open the file, or if the file is a program that should be run. The following list of file name extensions lists types of files identified by Microsoft as potentially containing dangerous programs. Dangerous File Extensions

If an attachment does not have one of these safe extensions its best not to open the attachment. Be especially suspicious of any file that has a doubled extension (eg. coolpic. gif.exe). Normally files have only one three or four letter extension so a file with more than one extension is probably an attempt to trick you into opening the attachment. Also note that a file could have a name like, it looks like a URL to a web site, but if you check the dangerous extensions list above you will notice that .com in the extension used by MS-DOS applications. This was the trick used by the recent ‘My Party’ worm. Legitimate URLs should be listed in the body of the message like (usually blue and underlined) and preferably preceded by http:// as in com/. If in doubt, copy the text of the URL and paste it into the address bar of your web browser instead of clicking on the link. Making E-Mail Safer To reduce your risk, at a minimum: • Apply all the security patches available from the Windows Update Site on a regular basis and/or • Install Internet Explorer 6 • If using an email program other than Outlook / Outlook Express, check the manufacturer’s web site regularly for security updates. • If using the full version of Outlook from MS Office, apply all the security patches available from the Office Update Site on a regular basis. For best protection: • Use Microsoft Outlook 2000 or Microsoft Outlook 2002 / XP for email. Microsoft Outlook 2002 / XP blocks all attachments with the dangerous file extensions listed above right out of the box. Microsoft Outlook 2000 needs to be patched to Service Release 1a (Available from the Office Update Site) and the Outlook 2000 SR-1- Extended E-mail Security Update should be installed. With a patched version of Outlook 2000 or Outlook 2002/XP it is impossible to open or send an attachment with any of the listed dangerous file extensions. This attachment blocking removes the need to know the list of dangerous attachments.

Any file received as an email attachment with any of the above extensions should NEVER be opened even if you know the person that sent the file. Unfortunately some email programs don’t display file extensions in their default configurations, in particular, Outlook Express. The display of file extensions can be turned on, the method varies slightly depending of the version of Windows, but generally is similar to the following: 1. Open ‘My Computer’ 2. Find ‘Folder Options’ (Usually on the Tools menu but possibly on the View menu.) 3. On the View tab, remove the check mark beside ‘Hide file extensions for known file types’ 4. Click the OK button.

Dolts Rule

Quality Counts

It’s always fun visiting the Odd Zone; it’s the very best of your diarist’s former domiciles, for all sorts of reasons, most of them a cause for wry smiles or irritated grimaces. There’s the traffic, for one thing. It largely obeys the road rules and even stays in lane; what’s more, at traffic lights if there are, say, three lanes of traffic marked, none of the vehicles present attempts to create eight lanes. It’s very confusing for drivers accustomed to Bali’s road system (sic) and driver behaviour. But the very worst of the Australian experience, for those citizens of the Odd Zone who have exchanged You’re Being Watched resident status for the significantly better benefits of Frequent Visitor, is the bureaucracy in general and the customs and quarantine and airport security you encounter in particular.

On the question of looking for quality rather than quantity (and the higher per visitor spend that results) it’s cheering to hear that Bali proposes to shift its focus that way. We’re under siege here, after all, though not solely from foreign tourists: all those chaps who bring their cars with them on holiday from Jakarta and Bandung and Surabaya, and their road manners and driving skills too, are a nuisance.

On our way back to Bali from Perth the weekend before last, for example, the Diary and Distaff lost some valuable soft cheeses – the finest products of Western Australia no less – on the risible grounds that they were “gels” and thus suspected of being potentially explosive. We all value airport security and agree that mad shoe bombers and others of incomprehensibly suicidal intent should be detected and diverted from their proposed criminal acts. But a little common sense wouldn’t go astray among those whose daily duties arm them with bureaucratic instructions that an imbecile would instantly recognise as stupid. If the two Aussie border control heroes who fished around in our cooler bag had exercised common sense when they detected brie and haloumi (we had to insist they dropped it down the disposal chute while we watched – we’re not in the business of providing free gourmet foods to anyone) they’d also have confiscated the prime soft Tasmanian blue with which we were also armed. But they didn’t. For that oversight they and their over-prescriptive masters should be shoe-ins for a Dumbo award. There’s a serious side to this. Frequent visitors have plenty of other places they can choose to go instead, where you’re much less likely to get cheesed off by doltish buffoons on food patrol.

Bit of a Stumble It’s not always as much fun as it should be returning to Bali. This time The Diary stepped on a hidden road-level metal guardrail on alighting from the bus from the plane to the terminal and overstretched a hamstring. Perhaps it is there to deter bus drivers from motoring up the terminal steps. But the embarrassing limp that resulted has not been a Favourite Moment. In the terminal, we ran into some nattily dressed customs and excise officers who, while presumably present to clamp down on the informal system of paying under the counter for extra alcohol above the onelitre limit attempted to extort even more. Unfortunately for them they had to deal with the Distaff, who was not in the best of moods. We paid, but not on the basis of their aberrant and singularly profitable mathematical concept.

Flagging By happenstance, the day after our return from the Odd Zone (Western Division) the Perth online newspaper WA Today ran an article headlined “Where the bloody hell are all the tourists?” Coarse language (along with bad grammar) is only one irritating element of life as it is lived in the continent of kangaroos. We tweeted that, suggesting that perhaps all the tourists were in Bali. They’re not, of course – for some strange reason Aussies are also travelling elsewhere overseas on cheap holidays – but one of the reasons they’re not packing Western Australia’s many attractions is the cost of doing so. We sympathise with WA’s tourism marketers and agree there are a great many reasons to be a tourist on their patch, among them the beaches and the wineries. And beaches might be a mass market chance, except that most Australians already live within reach of perfectly adequate alternatives to flying 3000 kilometres to sit on one in WA. Other tourism options are largely for niche markets. It’s a tough business, as Bali itself is finding out. Pursuing quantum figures in tourism is fine if you’re only looking – in the Australian context and here – for the Yeh ‘n’ Neh crowd and big sales of “I Drink Beer and Have the Belly to Prove It” vests. The Diary looks forward to regular trips to WA where, in the south-west particularly, there are many establishments offering prime potable products. On our recent visit to home territory we dined and drank at both Voyager (whose Girt by Sea pinot noir is fabulous and not only for its name, which comes from a memorably ridiculous line in the Australian national anthem) and Wise, a personal favourite because it looks over an expanse of generally calm north-facing ocean and has a Provencal air. Voyager affects a Cape Dutch architectural style (quite well) and has lovely roses – and perhaps the biggest flag in Australia apart from the double-decker bus-sized flutterer atop Parliament House in Canberra.

It’s long overdue, even if we’re pitching for three million foreign tourists to write another record. Bali’s infrastructure – not just the roads and the pathetic power system – is literally cracking under the strain of the tourist load. Provincial second assistant secretary Ketut Wija recently pronounced upon this at a planning meeting on economic development held appropriately enough in Lombok (which should be taking a larger portion of the tourist load, except that Bali keeps putting rocks in the road of that endeavour) when he said: “We no longer will prioritise the quantity of tourist arrivals, but will now place the emphasis on quality of those visitors.” Wija said Bali – an island of only 5632 square kilometres, 0.2 percent of Indonesian national territory – has between five and six million visitors annually. It is also a magnet for Indonesians from other islands seeking work, with about 400,000 arriving to settle each year.

Skippy’s a Winner

C/E/G-7 March 12

The Diary’s side trip on the Australian tour – mentioned in the Diary last issue – was by Qantas flying Perth-CanberraPerth. We’re now a mere bronze QFlyer (the halcyon days of pointy-end platinum status are long gone) but a happy confluence of an accommodating friend at head office and unoccupied seats in business class resulted in upgrades both ways. It was delightful to have space to stretch the legs, food to match the ambiance and actual metal cutlery to eat it with, and an unobstructed view out of the window. Both flights were into the gloaming and then the night, affording the Diary an opportunity also long forgone to feast the eyes on the amazing light-hues off to the south in the stratospheric distance and to imagine all that ice-waste far away beyond the Southern Ocean. It stirs the Muse, that sort of thing. Another stirring element of the flight was a dangerous confection, the work not of the Devil but of Maggie Beer, who may be one of his culinary agents but is certainly an Australian icon. Her burnt fig and honey ice cream is to die for, though one naturally hopes not immediately. The Purser on the flight agreed, when we beckoned him over and said: “Maggie Beer is a bad, bad woman.” A big smile lit up his face and he replied: “Oh I know, I know. But I’m lucky. I live only 30 minutes up the road from her shop.”

It’s a Riot

C/E/G-11 Jan. 12

It is the lot of the unlucky diarist to be elsewhere when something happens. We had to watch the unfolding drama of the Kerobokan prison riot through the imperfect prism of Australian television. Matt Brown was measured – and by far the best – on ABC. The commercial stations were their usual breathlessly uniformed selves. And that’s such a shame because most Australians get what passes for their news from tabloid TV. The Kerobokan insurrection was hardly unexpected. It beggars belief that the custodial authorities are not provided with sufficient funds to properly house all those that the police and the judicial system, insist on jailing. A solution is more prison space so that at least the basics of human existence can be practised in clink. There are some useful human rights rules the government could read up on, in that regard, too.

Oh All Right Then Last issue’s guarded reference to Titian and ladders – it was in the context of the Renaissance exhibition at the Australian National Gallery – brought a rash of requests to expand upon it. So OK, we were wrong to attempt to be decorous. Here’s the limerick in question: While Titian was mixing Rose Madder His model reclined on a ladder.

DVD Hugo Set in Paris, after the First World War, an orphaned boy is living in the rafters of a Parisian railway station. There, he is restoring a mechanical man, which his father had found abandoned in a museum. Through some twists of fate, this mechanical man, once restored, is to allow the boy to meet the pioneering filmmaker Georges Melies, who started making movies at the end of the 19th century. This meeting also eventually leads to the discovery of some of Melies’ films thought to be lost. Martin Scorsese’s homage to the origins of the cinema is superb. His film is romantic and stunning to look at, in particular his wonderful use of color. The various color hues set the mood for each scene, and then direct the passage of our eyes across the screen. Scorsese’s recreations of the making of some of Melies’ movies are inspired, and the restored Melies’ films featured in the movie are simply marvelous. Tower Heist Ben Stiller plays the manager of an exclusive residential apartment building in New York. One of his tenants is a major financial broker on Wall Street, and Ben entrusts his staff’s pension portfolio to his care. When the broker is arrested for fraud, all the pension money evaporates. Together with some of the other disgruntled staff members, Ben concocts a plan to crack a hidden safe in the broker’s apartment, where the broker keeps a stash of secret cash. Enough with the plot! This is a ‘heist’ movie and you get the general idea. What this comedy is all about is the great camaraderie amongst its stars. Ben Stiller, along with Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Alan Alda, Michael Pena, Tea Leoni, Matthew Broderick and Gabourey Sidibe, all have heaps of fun. Director Brett Ratner keeps the wacky situations and humor bubbling along, but, he is wise enough to allow his cast plenty of space ‘to do their thing’. Real Steel About 20 years into the future human prize fighters have been replaced by mechanical robots. A bankrupt boxing entrepreneur, and his estranged teenage son, put together a robot from parts they find in a scrap yard, and then travel around the American backwoods competing in prize fights, while gradually winning their way into the big time. Along the way father and son bond. That’s about it, but, director Shawn Levy makes a really terrific action movie in which the robot fights are just awesome. Steven Spielberg acts as an Executive Producer, so, as you would expect, there is a certain amount of schmaltz in the movie, but, it doesn’t get in the way of the action too much. The Iron Lady Aging British Ex-Prime Minister Mrs. Thatcher is suffering from dementia, and, as pieces of memory come to her during her more lucid moments, this not so great movie takes us on a whirlwind trip through the highlights of her political career, in no particular order. It’s as if the movie is trying to depict and capture Mrs. Thatcher’s demented state-of-mind, still, it doesn’t do it all that successfully. But, the movie does have an Oscar winning performance from Meryl Streep, who is amazing as ‘The Iron Lady’. You would swear you were watching Mrs. Thatcher herself. Right down to her wonky teeth. J. Edgar Director Clint Eastwood’s bio-pic on the life of J. Edgar Hoover is also a flawed film. Hoover was the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for almost 50 years, and he wielded immense power quite ruthlessly. The movie starts in Hoover’s old age, as he is dictating his memoirs to an eager underling, and it then flashes backwards and forwards through different time frames to give us an impression of the character of the man, along with highlights of his lengthy career. This chaotic style of film-making

doesn’t hang together all that well, nor does Eastwood provide us with a suitable explanation for Hoover’s long personal relationship with his assistant Clyde Tolson. Plus, Eastwood’s excuse for Hoover’s notorious ‘cross-dressing’ is just a little bit ludicrous. Nonetheless, this is another movie which is saved by its star. Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant as the megalomaniac bureaucrat. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close After his father is killed in New York’s Twin Towers catastrophe, a young boy finds a key which his father had hidden in an antique vase. The boy thinks that the key could reveal a message from his father, and, so, he begins a search all over New York City to discover what the key fits. Adapted from a novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, director Stephen Daldry makes an elegant movie, with a very intriguing plot, and which also stars some excellent actors such as Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Max Von Sydow, Zoe Caldwell, John Goodman, and Viola Davis. However, the movie is marred by a bad performance from its child star. Thomas Horn is too young to understand the subtleties of his role, and he just plays it at a high level of irritating anguish.

Jack and Jill In this horrendous movie, an advertising executive exploits Al Pacino’s attraction to the executive’s twin sister by trying to sign the famous actor for a TV commercial. Adam Sandler plays his twin sister in ‘drag’, and there is nothing at all remotely appealing about the character he creates. Also, there is nothing that is even remotely funny in this disaster of a so-called comedy.

Nyepi - Balinese Day of Silence March 23, 2012

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

Nyepi Day, also known as the Balinese Day of Silence falls on the day after the dark moon of equinox as calculated by the Saka calendar and as such, usually occurs in March or April every year. It is a 24 hour period beginning at 6am on Nyepi Day until 6am on the following day. It is the first day of the Balinese New Lunar Year which will fall on the 23rd March in 2012.

C/E/G-7 Sept. 11

Down To Earth

As with any celebration or event of significant importance, there is preparation to be done and Nyepi is no exception to this. Three days before Nyepi Day, the Melasti ritual will take place. It is the time for ‘Amerta’ to be invoked from the sea to provide protection from unfortunate phenomena affecting the island. This is also the time for the cleansing of effigies of the gods, taken from temples all over, and traditionally bathed in natural water sources then returning to their shrines. Whilst Nyepi is observed by following codes of silence both spiritually and physically, the eve of Nyepi is celebrated in direct contrast with as much noise as possible preferred in order to deter evil spirits on the island. The Seka Teruna, made up of the youth in any given Banjar are charged with the production and assembly of the Ogoh-ogoh, large bamboo monster On this day…. puppets that function to symbolise the evil spirits that destabilize an ideal environment. They are paraded down streets to congregate at major crossroads The inaugural Earth Hour is a resounding success in Sydney Australia, March 31, 2007. of villages, a place where the demons are believed to gather and ritual is An initiative founded by the World Wildlife Fund undertaken to exorcise them. This is a fantastical and colourful display of Balinese (WWF) to garner large scale participation in the ceremony and a great time to be out amongst it all and celebrate the night away. preservation of our earth. It is observed on the However, for those choosing to take full advantage of this Balinese New Years Eve, be sure to be within your villa or hotel boundaries, quiet and still no later than 6am. Nyepi Day is known as the day of silence and it’s expected to be adhered to by each and every person on the island of Bali whether or not the Balinese Hindu faith is formally observed. Rules include no fire or light so television is not an option, nor is music as silence can not be achieved with any noise! The only exemptions from this are emergency resources and limited hotel service, in certainty, even air traffic will cease and the airport completely shut down for this period. If for any reason you take yourself outside of your hotel or residence during this time you can be sure to get picked up by the Pecalang, the official ‘security of order’ on this sacred day who may employ quite intimidating means of returning you to whence you came! Oddly, tourists are often caught off guard by this unique ritual, and will express surprise and disappointment in the lack of information forthcoming regarding the phenomenon. This is understandable, particularly for those on shorter holidays, as it may seem to ‘rob’ them of a day’s adventure they may be seeking in Bali. On the other hand, with a bit more knowledge and understanding this could be viewed as a unique experience peculiar to the island of Bali. A time when relaxation is literally forced upon you, when nothing is to be done except perhaps read a book and doze all day…. guilt free! In fact, the morning after Nyepi is the best day of the year to witness a clear sunrise on the east coast. Following a day when traffic and burning of garbage are entirely absent for 24 hours, before the onslaught of vehicles return to the roads and daily business recommences, pollution will be at an all time low and the air settled and clear. Certainly, Sanur beach would be a wonderful place to enjoy an early breakfast, you may even catch a rare glimpse of Mount Agung in all its glory. Selamat Hari Nyepi everyone!

Centuries later, St Patricks Day was granted public holiday status in Ireland and is celebrated in parts of the world where Irish communities abound. It honours the patron Saint Patrick for his efforts in ‘christianising’ Ireland in the 6th century. It arrives at the lifting of the Lent period, so food and drink is enjoyed in abundance and hence the celebration has taken on quite the popular following.

A turning point for apartheid and racisim world wide is marked by the deaths of 69 peaceful demonstrators in South Africa, March 21, 1960. Since 1966, The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination has marked this day by raising international awareness about the positive impact of tolerance and acceptance of and by all human beings regarding racial and cultural differences. “The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination reminds us of our collective responsibility for promoting and protecting this ideal.”

April Fools’ Day April 1, 2012 A common theme occurring during the research for ‘Global Going’s On’ is the uncovering of several, often conflicting, versions of events regarding the origins of many modern day calendar observances and as such, this April Fools’ Day bears no exception. However, as the dominant and resounding theory in this instance and as a flow on from last month’s column, which spoke of the introduction of the Gregorian calendar in relation to the leap year phenomenon, April Fools Day may begin here…

C/E/U-25Jan. 12

Originating in France when the amended calendar was initially implemented in the 16th century, the first day of the new year was moved to January 1st. This occurred in a time when news traveled slowly and many weren’t aware of the changes and so continued to celebrate the beginning of the new year between March 25th – April 1st. Evidently, some stalwarts, regardless of their being ‘in the know’, flatly refused to observe the changes. People who fell into either category were taunted as fools by their contemporaries, and practical jokes were played. One common prank was to stick a paper fish to someone’s back and then taunt them with the cry ‘poisson d’avril’ (meaning April fish), this alludes to the fact that only foolish fish are caught. Indeed, Napoleon acquired this name when he married Marie-Louise of Austria on April 1st in 1810! In France the holiday is still celebrated under this banner. Additionally, as this is the time of year of the vernal equinox, it is common for unpredictable weather to often catch people off guard and hence nature is making ‘fools’ of them. There is also evidence to suggest that April Fools Day, or All Fools Day as it sometimes known, takes cues from the Roman Festival of Hilaria observed on March 25 to celebrate the resurrection of Attis, and it is sometimes referred to as Roman Laughing Day. Alternatively, some assert that the Indian festival of Holi has had some influence, a joyous celebration in the Hindu calendar where the practice of throwing coloured and scented powder at one another abounds. In Scotland it seems they can’t get enough of the fun and stretch it out over two days with the second known as Taily Day where the pranks revolve around bottoms! The ‘kick me’ sign is charged with Scottish origins. On April Fools Day, certain social norms of behaviour are relaxed so that everyone can join in the hilarity, certainly even politicians and media are known to take advantage with radio stations pulling hoaxes and newspapers printing headline pranks, although it is up to the prankster to exercise instinct in keeping things tasteful. In countries such as the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand to name a few, jokes are only acceptable before noon and one is considered to become the fool if attempting any practical jokes after this time. They shall be taunted with the chorus “April Fool’s Day past and gone, you’re the fool for making one”. There is no great recognition of April Fools Day in Bali or Indonesia, however considering the vast and diverse expatriate community perhaps it is best to remain aware on the 1st of April this year lest you be the butt of a Fool’s Day practical joke!

Convert water tank to septic tank: The cheapest way to build a septic tank is to convert a plastic water tank. Plastic water tanks can easily be converted to cheap, long-lasting, watertight septic tanks. An added benefit is that a plastic septic tank is not likely to crack and leak. Minimum size water tank to buy for 2 residents is 1,000 liters; for 4 residents 2,000 liters. You need a good man with a knife to cut very, very neat holes for the piping. Neat holes = no leaks. Use Sikaflex (black is best) as the sealer around pipes. Important: For the tank inlet and outlet pipes, buy threaded pipe joiners, which screw together, on either side of the hole in the wall of the tank. 1. Cut a neat hole in the wall of the tank for the outlet pipe - the inlet pipe is usually on the ‘shoulder’ of the tank where the side joins to the top, making the hole more difficult to cut neatly; 2. In a wall, insert and screw together, a threaded pipe joiner or in the ‘shoulder’ the hole is elongated, so a section of pipe must be used to enter the tank; 3. Install the inlet pipe, extending to near the bottom of the tank (to stir the sludge); 4. Drill air escape holes in the top of the inlet pipe, inside the septic tank (to allow air to escape from the pipe when a toilet is flushed); 5. With the inlet and outlet pipes firmly in place, seal all the holes/joints with Sikaflex. Don’t forget to build a vegetated leachfield planted with bananas, papayas or vetiver grass in a minimum area of 10 square meters for 2 residents (but a bit bigger is better).

Save money in the office: Buy generic instead of brand name, use recycled paper for printing paper and scratch pads, recycle file folders, use paper clips instead of throw-away staples, keep all your supplies in one central cabinet that staff needs to check before reordering, centralize all ordering with one person, set up an account with a supplier, use a discount wholesaler to order supplies, do all ordering through one vendor so you can negotiate discounts, review regular purchases to see if they’re really necessary, scan instead of photocopy, make digital copies instead of archiving hard copies, use electronic forms instead of paper forms, consolidate individual software programs by using an integrated software platform, eliminate all useless reports, write more succinct reports, for high volume copying laser printers are cheaper than ink jet printers, print in black and white instead of color, use both sides of the paper when printing, refill printer ink cartridges instead of buying new ones, refill whiteboard markers, drink from bottles that can be refilled, don’t expose rubber bands to open air, use mobile phones instead of land lines for making long distance calls, use webbased calling services like Skype, use handphones for making calls in hotel rooms, turn off overhead and bathroom lights during the day, replace ceramic tiles with glass tiles to let in natural lighting, open windows or blinds for natural outside air ventilation instead of a/c; replace a/c unit with more energysaving unit, turn off computers, monitors, scanners, copiers, printers and fax machines during non-business hours, use doorbells and voice mail systems to greet visitors, customers and callers; use a recycling contractor to haul away reusable wastes, replace inefficient outdated incandescent lamps with low-consumption CFLs or LEDs, use a laptop instead of a desktop system for 90% lower electricity costs, use netbook computers instead of laptops, use a multifunction printer to replace tasks done by printer, copier, scanner and fax machine; educate employees to change old energy-wasting habits, designate one employee to be responsible for energy efficient practices, post green practices in plain Bahasa Indonesia for all to see, implement employee buy-in to fully engage staff to minimize overhead and operation costs, have staff bring lunch from home and save eating out each day, outsource jobs cheaper than using in-house staff, hire part time or contract workers instead of full-time employees, stop all needless travel, reduce transporation costs by using

motorcyles instead of cars; bosses can live without a administrative assistant by handling their own calendars, travel arrangements and files through their own smartphones and computers, relocate office to less expensive location. Drawing supplies: Oils, arcrylics, art and drawing books, brushes, drawing instruments, glass, glazings, mats, canvas, fine art papers, and all manner of other art supplies. The prices on imported easels are high but good quality (cheaper at Rp245,000 to Rp295,000 at G a r w i s , J l . Tu k a d Pakerisan 66 A, tel. 0361-256-790). Artmedia frequently offers 20% to 30% discounts so it pays checking periodically what items have been reduced; also check out the “special price” section of their website (http:// for promotional bargains and get-one free offers as well as useful articles like “how to clean your paint brushes.” Address: Artmedia, Custom Framing and Art Supplies, Jl. Imam Bonjol 434, Denpasar, tel. 0361-485-248/499-195, email: Also branches in Ubud (Jl. Raya Peliatan; near Delta supermarket); Sanur (Jl. Danau Buyan 26 A, tel. 0361-287-809). Open Mon.-Sat. 8:30 am-5 pm. Finance your ride: Arisan is a unique peer-to-peer funding network organized to make large purchases, even for cars! A benignly “forced” way to save money because members would sooner default on a bank loan than cheat on their friends - and bank interest rates can be as high as10% monthly! The arisan method is the easiest way to buy a motorcycle or car because it allows you to put down less money and make lower monthly payments than if buying one on credit. There are two big financing agencies, with offices all over Bali: Asamot which specialize in financing motorbikes and Asamob which finances automobiles. Both have offices at the same address: Jl. Imam Bonjol 464, tel. 0361-246-907. For example, if you want to buy a new Avanza you have to put down Rp35 million (uang muka), then pay Rp2 million per month for 50 months. The total cost of the car is Rp127 million, so this means that with all your monthly payments plus the deposit you pay only Rp7,650,000 interest! To many, this type of financing is more attractive than going through car dealer credit agencies like Toyota 2000 or Agung Auto Mall because the monthly payments are less. If you go through a car dealer, the deposit is less but the total cost of the car is more, monthly payments are higher and the duration of your monthly payments is longer. To apply for Asamot or Asamob, you’ll need to prove permanent employment, a fixed address, plus photocopies of your KITAB visa and passport; Indonesians will need their KK (Kartu Keluarga) and KTP (Kartu Tanda Penduduk).

Toko of the month: One-stop shopping for anything to do with babies, toddlers and young children 6-7 years old at way cheaper prices than any of the other supermarkets. This big chain supplier of baby products and accessories sells kids clothes for boys and girls, baby cloth diapers, baby toys, baby shoes, baby furniture, baby equipment, new baby gifts, baby

eating utensils, bottle feeding supplies, maternity clothes, original DVDs of kids’ movies (Rp49,000). Some items like high quality cotton singlets (Rp7000-Rp11,000 depending on size) and cotton underwear (Rp7000-Rp12,000) are the best deals. Lots of discount tables at 20%-30% and more off. The spacious second floor is full of strollers, electric cars, plastic play houses, swings and play sets, and a whole wall of cheap Chinese toys. Address: Clandy’s Grosir; Jl. Raya Buluh Indah RT. RW. Pemecutan Kaja, Denpasar Utara. Branches: Jl. Letda Made Putra, Komplek Pertokoan Udayana Blok 34, Denpasar, Jl. Raya Tuban Tuban 888 Kuta. Information: 0361747-7944/0361-885-5800. Garbage service: To dispose of organic waste, start a composting bin and worm farm, feed your food wastes to chickens, ducks and pigs. Information and advice about recycling and composting systems for your home and garden can easily be found on the web. If you live way out in the country, go to your local kepala desa and ask where the official waste dump (TPA) is. Your village might also work with a recyclables collector (pemulung) who picks up reusables. If your banjar doesn’t have a waste disposal service, a better option than dumping your non-recyclable garbage down the nearest river ravine is to sign up with a banjar’s or a friend’s banjar’s waste disposal service in the nearest town where the contents of their dumpsters are taken to the town’s dump site. Campur Sari (Jasa Angkutan Sampah, Banjar Canggu, hp 081-337-017-509) is a reliable, efficient and polite locallybased service that charges Rp100,000 per month. For Rp50,000 per month, a Sanur-based garbage disposal service collects both dry and wet waste, small and large trash, and even will pick up dead leaves, branches and yard debris if customers put it aside neatly in a pile. Call Pak Wayan, Jasa Pengangkutan Sampah, Jl. Mertasari Gg. 13 No. 3, Sanur, tel. 0361-282159. For Rp950,000 per year, Eco Bali Recycling in Ubud picks up recyclables (and on occasion landfill) and also separates and disposes of it properly. The non-profit Bali Fokus, Jl. Tukad Tegal Wangi, Sesetan, Denpasar, tel. 0361233 520/0361-743 5796, teaches people in the towns of Denpasar, Gianyar and Badung how to separate organic waste in their homes and in village facilities to be used to make compost and for pig food.

Bali’s answer to mass transit: It’s a start. To the displeasure of taxi drivers, the new Sarbagita bus system is beginning to catch on with Bali’s tourists and residents alike because it is cheap, convenient and comfortable. The stops are easy to recognize with flights of stairs leading up to a small vestibule where passengers stand in line to enter the bus. Another reason to take the bus system is that gas prices will increase next month. Like Jakarta’s Transjakarta system, aka busway, the increasingly popular bus system, which operates daily from 5 a.m. until 9 p.m., covers a route from Batubulan to Nusa Dua with a dozen “halte” (bus stops) along the way. The one-way fare on these a/c buses for an adult passenger is a steal at Rp3,500 or only Rp2,500 for students if wearing school uniforms. If a taxi covered this same distance, it would cost Rp60,000-Rp70,000 (add another Rp10,000 to Rp20,000 if there’s heavy traffic). The biggest problem with the system is that there are just not enough buses in the fleet, though apparently 10 new buses will be arriving in Bali bringing the total to 25. Let’s hope that given enough time Bali’s residents - like Jakartans with their busway - will not be able to live without the Transsarbagita buses. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they need them.

Found … in translation By Shelley Kenigsberg Ask why someone enjoyed a novel and the answer is often ‘I loved reading about people’s lives; about people finding their way through hard times, or having adventures or understanding small things or big things or finding love and living…living well, even happily (yes, you can fill in ‘ever after’). Whether fiction or non-fiction, writing stories about fascinating characters or events is what fills writers time; keeps us scrabbling for the perfect words to describe it. And devising fascinating characters can take huge effort and time (and is the topic of hundreds of creative writing classes!). But what if the story you want to tell is about a life you know - your own? Hundreds of guides for writing memoir/life stories attest to the popularity of the genre and the need, many find, to document their life and find meaning in doing just that. Stephen King, superb storyteller and author of On Writing - one of the best guides to writing, says, “I write to find out what I think”. So perhaps, you’re writing about the one you think you know. And, you find out so much more in the telling. Perhaps it isn’t until you set an experience down on paper, and unearth the perfect description, that you fully appreciate or understand it. But, must you have had a dramatic life to make it worth the effort? Is it only those who’ve had the ‘hardscrabble youth’ (Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle) or ‘excruciating childhood’ (Frank McCourt, Angela’s Ashes) who have something to say; some lesson about hardship and endurance or even eccentric families that keeps us reading, relating, relieved because we’re not relating and comforted by the eventual triumph of human spirit that those ‘misery memoirs’ generally hold. I think not. It may make the difference between whether they are published or not, but worth telling? Of course. And memoirs can be about anything, small or seemingly inconsequential things, or the larger more dramatic (big life events, injustices, crime, hardship). Everybody has stories shelved in their subconscious, stories that are awaiting translation. And there are as many different kinds of life stories as there are lives. “Memoir is about handing over your life to someone and saying, ‘This is what I went through, this is who I am, and maybe you can learn something from it’,” says Walls. “So many of us think that certain things only happened to us and somehow they make us less of a person. I’m constantly urging people to write about their lives. It was hugely eye-opening for me and very cathartic. Even if the book hadn’t sold a single copy, it would still have been worth it.” And it might just get published, become a blockbuster and

C/U/I-07 Sept 11

be made into a film. What could I be thinking of? Yes, Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, resonated (despite the film) hugely around the world because it hit the zeitgeist; spoke to thousands who wanted to break out of their pain or even plain lives and grab more (oh, and find love); and it keeps funding a massive industry of travellers, many of whom find Bali and balians immensely attractive. (But that’s another article.) So, think you might want to write your memoir? Tips for getting started You don’t have to be a professional writer or someone with connections in publishing to succeed. But there are ways to coax the story out; make things less daunting. 1. Write memoir, not autobiography. Autobiography is the story of an entire life, but memoir is just one story from that life. It’s a much less intimidating viewed that way. 2. Don’t begin at the beginning. Don’t be predictable and tell your story chronologically. But find the hook; a good beginning is a tease, giving readers enough to hook them without divulging the outcome. 3. Diagram your life. Give yourself space, time and a large sheet of paper! Plot your life’s most significant moments using critical choices (leaving a country, leaving a job), influential people (father, teacher, first love), conflicts (personal/world politics), beliefs, lessons, even mistakes and find the events that stand out as intriguing and/or meaningful. Experiment till you find the one story wanting to be told, the experience that really formed you. Start there. 4. Use all your senses. Create vivid worlds that transport readers by using all your senses to fully recreate a moment. Writers relish detail (in reality and in stories) so practice: next time you’re waiting (restaurant, office, traffic) notice the sights, sounds, smells, and textures. 5. Build your writing muscle. Have a daily goal - 200, 500, 1,000 words. Make a regular time (early morning?) and be disciplined. Don’t worry about making it perfect. Just focus on getting the story out. (There will be plenty of time for polishing later.)

Be warned though: some of what comes back may be painful. “Writing memoir is like preparing for confession,” says McCourt, who didn’t publish Angela’s Ashes until he was 66. “It entails honesty and can’t be effective if you’re worried about family and friends looking over your shoulder. If it is truthful, then there’s no other way to present it. At the least, readers will recognise the courage in that and respect you for it.” And Walls adds: “A smart therapist once told me that what I had done was exactly what he tries to get patients to do - confront the truth, … and this was my way of coming to terms with it. The things that haunt you, that have power over you-once you confront them, they lose their power”. Finally, some wisdom from William Zinsser (master storyteller and writing teacher) “Two words: think small. Don’t rummage around in your past - or your family’s past -to find episodes that you think are ‘important’ enough… Look for small selfcontained incidents that are still vivid in your memory. If you still remember them it’s because they contain a universal truth that your readers will recognise from their own life”. Remember: many say that beginning is half done. So, begin and, above all, relax. The anxiety to ‘get it right’ can be paralysing but memoir is the easiest type of writing to do well. You’ve already ‘lived’ the research. You’re intimately familiar with every character. Now… tell it. The next UWRF is 3-7 October 2012. Shelley Kenigsberg’s editing retreats are held in Australia and Bali (after UWRF).

UBUD BIG HEART & BALI ANGELS Accolades to Ubud’s 4th Valentine’s Day Invitation To Love, which raised 40 million rupiah ($US4,700) for three Bali foundations working with orphans and disabled children. The event was spearheaded by big-hearted reggae singer Kumara Dewa and his band, Griya Faria, hosted by Lobong Café and made possible - in typical Ubud fashion - by local and ex-pat volunteers. Kum’s “Angel” volunteers collected donations including artworks, food, drink, vouchers for accommodation, restaurant, spa and all sorts of other fab prizes - from 126 generous individuals and businesses. Blues, soul and reggae sets were performed by Griya Faria, Moko & Friends and Capsoul Band, with a “drop-in” by longtime Bali supporter, US Inde musician Michael Franti. Info: kumara.

DHARMA TALKS IN BALI Realising a five year dream, Bali Spirit festival CoF o u n d e r, P a k K a d e k Gunarta spoke about Balinese humor and spirit as he launched the Dharma in Bali Talks at Ubud’s Yoga Barn this month. The Dharma in Bali Talks, part of the festival’s outreach program, cover Balinese issues, including mythology and spiritual practices, modern reflections on ritual humor, healing, modernity and art, for ex-pats and visitors who want to go past the surface of Balinese culture. Speakers include superstar Indonesian musician and farmer Robbi Navicula, on demystifying Bali through music and ritual. 7-9pm, First, third and fifth Mondays, March - May 2012. Program: www. Info: THREE YEARS TOO LATE! Hilarious! A recent online Bali travel magazine edition promoted a fabulous “new” concept - Bali’s first Cuban-style night spot – in Kerebokan. Only problem is, they’re three years too late. Ubud’s Café Havana, applauded over and over again by visitors from South America for its authentic food, opened its doors in 2009. The atmosphere is authentic Cuba, and the bar, wait and even the kitchen staff are nifty salsa dancers, inviting dinner guests for a spin on the dance floor or stepping into a demo “rondelle” together when they’re not busy serving you and me. Havana’s new five piece house band - a combo of one kitchen staff, one waiter and one barman, and two cousins- flew out of an “improv” session at the suggestion of the resto manager, on a night when a calendar mix-up meant the booked band didn’t show.

LIFESAVER – TOYO CLINIC A few years ago my son swam to the edge of our local swimming pool and said, “Mum, I don’t think I can breathe”. Scary. At Ubud’s Fly Café, at 11pm last Saturday, my friend Annie said the same. It took a similarly fast ride to get to the Adelaide Children’s Hospital as to Ubud’s Toyo Clinic, and their efficiency was identical. I know Toyo is a 24/7 clinic but still I called on the way, to make sure they were open and that they had a working nebuliser. Annie has faced this before, so she knows what she needs to combat a massive asthma attack, but she didn’t need to say a thing. Oxygen mask within 30 seconds, a quick test for oxygen level in the blood, attached the nebuliser, re-check after 15 minutes, then off home with the right medication and a Toyo phone number, just in case. Thanks Toyo! Jl Raya Pengosekan; turn left/east off main road at the gas station. P: 0361 978 078.

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at This breakfast treat is best served warm with butter. I can’t keep my hands off of them when they come out of the oven! You can vary the taste by using lemon zest instead of orange. Buy the self rising flour at Dijon or make your own with the recipe that follows.

Orange and Poppy Seed Muffins Makes 9 muffins Ingredients : - 300 gr. self raising flour - 1/4 tsp. baking powder - 3 Tbl. castor sugar - 2 Tbl. poppy seeds - 1/2 Tbl. grated orange zest - grate only the orange part and not the white - 100 gr. butter - 105 gr. apricot jam - 2 eggs - 80 ml. yogurt - 1 Tbl. powdered sugar Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter or oil a 9 holed muffin tin.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and sugar into a bowl. Add the poppy seeds and the orange zest, mixing well with a fork. Make a well in the center and set aside. Gently melt the butter and jam in a small pot over a low flame. Set aside. In another bowl beat the eggs and yogurt together. Pour this into the well in the flour. Before mixing add the butter jam mixture and stir until just incorporated being careful not to over mix or the muffins will be tough. Spoon the batter into the muffin tin and bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool 10-15 minutes and then remove from the tin and sift the powdered sugar over the tops of the muffins. Note: To make ‘Self Rising Flour’: Sift together or mix with a wire whisk: 6 cups flour, 3 Tbl. baking powder, 1 Tbl. salt. Store in an air tight container.

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

Essential Oils for Total Wellbeing

It’s been a long time since anyone in my family has gone to the doctor for an ailment or injury. I attribute this in part to the energy work that I do for myself and my family, but also to the wonderful essential oils by Young Living, that have remedies for almost any ailment imaginable. Last night I got home to find my husband lying in bed in a heavy sweat complaining that he was freezing. He was burning up and told me he had another throat infection. I think smoking hasn’t helped his chronic throat infections, but unfortunately he’s not quite ready to give up. He asked me to give him some energy healing and to make up a concoction for him with my essential oils. I went to find my handy ‘Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils’ and quickly found a simple recipe: 1 drop of Thieves in a 32 oz glass of water. Dewa was in a lot of pain, but he drank the full glass of water. Thieves’ essential oil is highly antibacterial so it is excellent to use for any infections. I later blended some Thieves with olive oil to dilute the potency, as it can sting the skin. This was applied directly to Dewa’s throat and to Vita Flex points on his feet which assists the body with quick absorption and healing. Other good oils to use for sore throats are: oregano, lemon, peppermint & eucalyptus. I would recommend either getting a copy of the aforementioned guide or another book on the uses of essential oils, so that you will know the right amounts and types of blends to create for any particular health problem. I’m sure you’ve heard that there’s no cure for the common cold? Not true! Here is my regime when I feel a cold coming on. Start taking Zinc, vitamin C in high doses and Echinacea right away. There’s a good chance you will actually halt the cold right in its tracks if you catch it early enough. If not, then I would still recommend continuing with high doses of vitamin C and diffuse thyme, lemon and cedarwood into the air. You can also dilute 1 – 2 drops of oil in two tablespoons of olive oil or V-6 oil and massage a little on to your neck and chest. If the cold has set into your chest, another great remedy is to drink ginger tea with lemon & honey or palm sugar, as this helps break up the mucous. You can also make a ginger compress out of cheese cloth or old rags, grate the ginger and put inside cloth, then boil in water until the ginger is soft. Let it cool down slightly so that you are able to apply the compress directly to your chest in both the front and back. Essential oils can also be used to heal skin infections, rashes and burns. Some wonderful oils to stop itching include peppermint, lavender and Peace & Calming, which is a soothing blend. Impetigo is a bacterial skin infection that causes sores and blisters filled with yellowish fluid. These sores can be itchy and quite painful and can easily spread to other areas of the skin or to another person. A very

effective recipe for this type of skin infection is a combination of lavender and myrrh. Boil 4 ounces of water, let cool and then add 5 – 10 drops of lavender and/or myrrh and wash infected skin. Place the hot compress on site. If you have a rash, then try Melaleuca, Melrose or lavender oils which all work well. Dilute as necessary with carrier oil and apply to the site of the rash. When treating burns, some oils which are quite effective for reducing pain and facilitating healing are a blend of 10 drops lavender, 10 drops German chamomile and 5 drops Roman chamomile. Mix together and add one drop to each square inch of burn after it has been soaked in ice water. Lavender alone is sufficient if you don’t have chamomile. Be aware that if your skin is sensitive, that it’s always a good idea to blend your essential oils with a carrier oil.

C/BT/I-11 Jan 12

For those of you who have sleep disorders and don’t want to rely on pharmaceuticals, essential oils are a natural and very potent alternative. For insomnia, use a blend of lavender, valerian, bergamot, Citrus Fresh and Peace & Calming. A nice and simple recipe combines 6 drops of Citrus Fresh with 6 drops of lavender or 6 drops of Peace & Calming. Apply this blend to big toes, bottoms of feet, 2 drops around navel, and 3 drops on back of neck. Of course there are many other conditions which can be treated with essential oils. I’ve just given you a few recipes for some of the more common ailments and conditions which people may experience. There are several distributors of Young Living essential oils on Bali including myself, so it’s quite easy to order these wonderful oils and begin healing your ailments in a natural and safe way.

All recipes mentioned in this article are taken from the ‘Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils’, compiled by Connie and Alan Higley.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

The Ogoh-Ogoh are coming – how should I prepare????? The build-up to Nyepi reaches its climax with a cleansing ceremony called Tawur Agung, with its ritual of Pengerupukan, where people ostracise evil spirits from their house compounds by bashing on any noisy object they can find with torches in hand. Since the early 1980s, giant effigies have become a non-essential part of the ritual of Pengerupukan, starting later at around 8 or 9pm. For those of you who want to catch these spectacular creatures – the sweat and tears of groups of young, enthusiastic youths – it’s wise to get out on the streets early on March 22nd to guarantee a good vantage point. From my experience, some roads can even be diverted earlier – so, if you need to get to the airport (which is closed for Nyepi), leave many hours in advance – especially to allow for Bali’s now horrendous traffic. However, if you’re going to stay on the island, think about heading out around 7pm well before the ogoh-ogoh and all their supporters arrive at the intersections in the local area. Why the intersections? Crossroads are considered to be places where demons like to lurk, and also a place where ritual objects should be spun around three times – ogoh-ogoh are no exceptions. If you don’t mind shoulder to shoulder crowds, get down to the larger intersections, but bring only yourself and your camera. These places are havens for pickpockets, so don’t carry a wallet or much money. If you’re bringing kids, consider bringing a small stroller, or carry them in a backpack as they will tire easily. Be aware too that liberal fireworks in an uncontrolled setting are a feature of the ogoh-ogoh display. Be ready to duck or keep a safe distance, especially if you’re with kids! The displays are captivatingly creative and, since there are fresh, new ogoh-ogoh each year, you’ll always see something new. This is a great time to be in Bali, and even better if you arrive a few days before to travel around the island to see the huge variety of ogohogoh as you travel from village to village. Ogoh-ogoh season should definitely not be missed! 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.

My Favourite Things

By : Ruby Jackson C/G/I-24 August 11

This column is non-advertorial and written by an expat who has lived in Indonesia for nearly 20 years. The island has changed during this time, as has the whole world, but there are some places, things, people or events that remain as good as anyone can remember, for various reasons, or, recently opened places, arrived people or new organisations that are worth a mention. Listed below are those for this edition, in no particular order, as the island is a vibrant place that moves progressively with many wonderful things on offer. Bali has come a long way and My Favourite Things explores what remains interesting for us all to experience.

TONI&GUY ESSENSUALS HAIRDRESSING BALI Now I didn’t get to meet TONI&GUY above the latest DEUS outlet just down from Seminyak Square, but I did meet Steve Sone the amazing colourist whom I quickly found out I had very much in common with, being a globetrotter and loving Asia, as am I. His no-nonsense quick English humour, and love of colouring hair did for a second make me wish to be taking the plunge and going for the always wanted ‘pink’ hair that now seems to be fashionable (Katy Perry) and that the beautiful blonde girl was opting for next to me, but Steve kept me on the ground and gave me the best highlights so far on Bali – a ‘dirty’ blonde once again, I believe is the expression, like my favourite martini. The place was packed to the rafters and many expatriates came in and out, young and old-er, gorgeous pinks, golden oranges, highlights, low lights and some amazing cuts seemed to be the order of the day over the four hours that I was there (the time flew by) – even though the salon isn’t huge, it goes to show that talent prevails, especially as it’s only been open a few months. The Essensuals team is completed by stylists David and James Sutton, also from the UK who really know what they’re doing. What really stands out at this salon is the possibility of creativity, if the client wants, as well as the level of professionalism. The prices are also extremely reasonable taking the high level of service into consideration, but that’s why we love Bali and the lifestyle she offers us all, anyhow, right? I have this to offer you - the team of TONI&GUY UK trained professional stylists and Steve (technician) look forward to welcoming you into its unique salon for a complimentary consultation. Haircuts start from Rp. 400,000 and Wella Colour from Rp. 450,000. System Professional Alchemy Treatments from; Rp 650,000.

HIGH TEA @ BIKU TEA LOUNGE What an unusual and amazing place to have held a baby shower, invited by the fabulous designer Chloe Wynne of Evelyn Ruth fame, over high tea complete with baby-faced dummy-sucking cup cakes. This was my introduction to Biku High Tea that has been long raved about by friends and those in the know. The good news is, however, that the High Tea is served daily from 2pm-5pm at Rp. 85,000 per person. According to legend, one of Queen Victoria’s ladies in waiting - the Duchess of Bedford - is credited as the creator of afternoon teatime. As the noon meal (lunch) had become skimpier, the Duchess suffered from ‘a sinking feeling’ at about four o’clock in the afternoon. At first the

Duchess had her servants sneak her a pot tea and a few breadstuffs. Adopting the European tea service format, she invited friends to join her for an additional afternoon meal at five o’clock in her rooms at Belvoir Castle. The menu centered round small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, a variety of sweets and, of course, tea. This summer practice proved so popular, the Duchess continued it when she returned to London, sending cards to her friends and asking them to join her for ‘tea and a walking the fields’. The practice of inviting friends to come for tea in the afternoon was quickly picked up by other social hostesses. Biku’s High Tea is complete with Royal Albert Bone China cups and saucers, tea pots and teacosies, cakes stands full of finger sandwiches of cucumber (no crusts), smoked salmon and ham and mustard, scones, jam and cream (do you say skowns or skuns?), home made biscuits, cup cakes and sweet fancies as well as a large choice of tea. An absolutely splendid way to pass the late afternoon! Extremely civilized and sweet. Let’s play tea… I’ll be Mum!

Four Healers in Four Days Part 1

By Meeka Anne I first became acquainted with local healers on the island in 1990. For some time, I had been experiencing nosebleeds, and my Balinese boyfriend became convinced that some kind of Balinese hanky-panky had taken place. He decided I needed to open my mind and accompany him to a dukun. He asked around and discovered a well known channeler near Tabanan. To this day, that visit to Ibu Dewi remains one of my most mystifying experiences. The memories are still powerful more than twenty years later. We parked in front of what appeared to be a normal Balinese compound. But when we walked through the carved doors, I saw it was different. More than a hundred plastic chairs were lined up, and most were filled with every age and gender of Balinese.

Wrinkled old men sat hunched over with canes and mothers held feverish babies. Pregnant teenage girls clung to their anxious parents, and sullen teenage boys slouched next to them. Each person held some sort of offering, ranging from a smoked duck to a basket of fruit. Wayan’s mother had given us a bolt of batik fabric to bring. As soon as we walked in, all eyes turned to us, but they settled on me. I was the only bule. It wasn’t long before a young boy squatted down beside me, and whispered to Wayan. He motioned for us to come inside. I remember feeling self conscious and embarrassed that we were pulled out of the crowd where many were waiting, probably since morning. Wayan told me this is not first come, first serve. No one will dare question Ibu Dewi. I felt shaky as we proceeded to her office. That feeling dissipated quickly as I stood before a perfectly normal and even Buddha like calm face of a Balinese woman, who may have been about 40 years old. Her hair was pulled back into a bun and she wore a yellow kebaya. Her face was unlined and her eyes were kind. She spoke for a few moments to Wayan in Balinese, while she studied me. She asked me to kneel on the pillow in front of her. Her son then appeared with a jewel encrusted dagger with a wavy blade. I looked over at Wayan and he nodded towards the pillow. I felt I moved in slow motion as I made my way to kneel in front of this woman. She looked at me intently, closed her eyes and placed the kris sword on my right shoulder blade and then my left. I heard her chanting and was compelled to look up. When I did, I saw her eyes were closed, she was rocking, and her face had transformed into one of an ancient old man. A surge of heat passed through me and I wanted to run, but my legs were heavy and frozen. She then repeated this procedure with Wayan and instructed us to meet her in her office. I remember wondering, who I would see in the office, the young Ibu Dewi or the ancient one. The young Ibu Dewi promptly diagnosed Wayan and myself with black magic and proceeded to outline the ritual we would follow for two weeks. This involved using a scrub paste which Wayan’s mother would prepare for

us. It was a type of boreh and meant to pull out the toxins by covering our body with it every evening for 14 days. At the end of two weeks we returned for what I have always referred to as the exorcism, but now realize was more likely a ritual cleansing. Again, way out of my comfort zone, I entered a room full of other people who would also be relieved of their black magic source. This room had a large platform built into it which sat about three feet high. The platform was ornamental, gold gilded and loaded with offerings. The room was heavy with the smoke of hundreds of sticks of incense. The scent of the sandalwood was intoxicating and I instantly felt lightheaded. Ibu Dewi was the ancient one this day and was dressed very ceremonially with gilded robes and velvet hat. Transformed once again, she had the face of a 100 year old man. We were all instructed to take our tops off. Being a modest person, this was yet another difficult task for me. One by one we ascended the platform and knelt before her. Two of her sons held me down as she chanted and a third brought out the kris sword. I was instructed to keep my head down which was difficult as I distinctly heard the sound of bones crunching inside my back. When it was over she handed me strangely enough, a golden monkey, which she said was buried in my spine. Others that followed were given rusty coins, bits of hair, and other objects but only Wayan and I had the gold monkey. Everyone was interested in seeing what was extracted from other people in the room, but no one wanted to keep the foreign object. Afterwards, we participated in a ritual blessing and then we drank from a young coconut which was opened in front of us. The coconut water turned from sweet to salty, yet another bizarre experience. I sometimes feel dubious about what happened there that day, but have always respected the experience as authentic. And, did my nosebleeds stop? Yes, they did. Was this a result of my ritual? Who can know for sure? Moving forward twenty years, Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of “Eat, Pray, Love” has sensationalized the Bali healer to the point that tour groups in America actually book holidays based on the tales in her book. The Balinese healer that she visited while she was writing her book, has become world famous and I recently ran across a brochure titled from Ubud to Hollywood – “Ketut Liyer Journeys”. I have wanted for some time to visit Ketut Liyer, mainly due to curiosity, but I know the wait can often be several hours. He is now in his 80’s and it is certain that he is becoming drained by the crowds as well as the constant media attention. I’m sure he is overwhelmed, but simultaneously overjoyed at his new found fame, and the income that he can now provide for his family. It is the tradition of Balinese healers that they are to serve whoever comes to them and no one

can be turned a w a y. I t i s customary to present an o ff e r i n g , b u t these can range from a few hundred rupiah to a pack of cigarettes. It is usually not a profitable c a l l i n g . Certainly, Liz Gilbert has changed the life of not only Ketut Liyer, but B a l i n e s e healers all over the island. After that initial balian experience so long ago, I found I was not compelled to reach deeper into this inexplicable mysticism. I sometimes wonder why, because, as I said it remains one of the most compelling experiences of my life. Perhaps, it was just too far out of my comfort zone, or maybe it was the ridicule I endured from my Western friends when I explained the ritual to them upon my return to the States. Whatever the reason, I did not actively seek more of these experiences. This year I would be leaving Bali and most likely not return for more than two years. Many long term expats lose that initial wonder with Bali after awhile, but if you want to fall in love with Bali all over again, finding out you have to leave is a sure fix. This would be my longest absence from Bali since I arrived 23 years ago, and I suddenly felt the need to experience everything Balinese. Every time I heard the beat of the gamelan gong in the street, I jumped on my bicycle and raced to the beach cemetery to see the cremation. I studiously watched my Balinese cook prepare food, and needed to know how to make every recipe. I started adding more words to my Indonesian and Balinese vocabulary. I never left the house without my camera and snapped hundreds of photographs. I began to feel that I had never completely relinquished my Western self, but had only observed the culture casually from the sidelines. Part of this frantic accelerated immersion was the intense desire to visit more Balinese healers. With only a few days to go before my departure, I pushed the boundaries and visited 4 healers in 4 days. This intention led me to four very diverse healers. One well known and respected Balinese herbal expert, one recommended Islamic man from East Java, an American Reiki healer who is married to a Balinese, and in the end an extremely energetically powerful Balinese woman channeler. These four very distinctly different experiences strongly impacted my last few days in Bali, and gave me the ability to leave Bali with a lighter heart than I had anticipated. Part two of this story will detail the sessions with these four very different individuals. For questions or comments about this article contact Copyright © 2011 Meeka Anne

Local News Driver and Maid Arrested for Murdering Kuta Family of 3 The missing driver of a family of three from South Kuta who were found brutally murdered on Monday (20/2) was arrested on Tuesday along with his wife, police said. Comr. Arif Sugiarto, the Denpasar Police’s chief of detectives, said on Tuesday that the driver, Heru Ardianto, and his wife, Ni Putu Anita, were arrested in Heru’s hometown of Situbondo, East Java, where they had fled after the murder. He declined to go into more detail about the case, saying a press conference to formally identify Heru and Anita as the suspects would be held today. The couple worked as driver and maid, respectively, at the home of I Made Purnabawa, 28, in South Kuta. They were reported missing on Feb. 14 along with Purnabawa’s wife, Ni Luh Ayu Sri Mahayoni, 27, and the employers’ 9-year-old daughter, Ni Wayan Krisna Ayu Dewi.

On Monday, villagers from Yehembang in Bali’s Jembrana district, 150 kilometers from the victims’ home, found the bodies of Purnabawa, Sri Mahayoni and Dewi dumped in bushes there. The husband and wife were wrapped in a bed sheet, while their daughter was discovered decapitated 10 meters away. Sr. Comr. I Wayan Sunartha, the Denpasar Police chief, said on Tuesday that the suspects’ trail westward indicated they were fleeing to Heru’s hometown in East Java, which had allowed the police to coordinate with the Situbondo Police to arrest them. He added it appeared likely that the couple had killed the family out of resentment or spite. “The victims were reportedly not pleased with having Heru staying with them,” he said. “There were also no valuables missing from the victims’ home, except the car and motorcycles.”

Police initially found the family’s car and two motorcycles missing from the house. They also found traces of blood on the walls and a bed, and blood stains in the alley leading to the exit and near the garage.

On Tuesday, coroners said an autopsy confirmed the deaths were caused by severe and repeated blunt force trauma to the head. “The skulls of all three victims were completely shattered because of the force of the violence,” said Dudut Rustiyadi, the head of forensics at Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar.

Two human teeth were found in the living room, while the family’s dog was found freshly killed and buried in a teak plantation near the home.

He confirmed that they were killed on the night of Feb. 14, consistent with neighbors’ reports of screams coming from the house at that time. (February 22nd 2012)

Jail Riots Cause Havoc in Kerobokan Riots at the infamous Kerobokan Jail caused havoc in the Kerobokan area on Tuesday (21/2). Authorities evacuated foreigners and women from the Kerbokan jail after it was taken over by rioting inmates. Twelve convicted Australian drug smugglers and 48 other foreigners have been housed together with about 1,000 other inmates at the notorious and overcrowded Kerobokan jail. The evacuation that began near dusk brought calm after a day of mounting tensions between inmates and some 500 police and military massed outside. The first prisoners boarded buses outside the prison’s main entrance, where armored vehicles and water cannons were positioned since before dawn as authorities tried to negotiate with inmates holed up inside.

has been that three inmates injured in the first night of violence and taken to hospital be returned to the prison, fearing they were being mistreated. But authorities said they would not be pressured into giving in to their demands. Officials and media reports said the trouble began after one of the inmates was stabbed on Sunday (19/2), triggering reprisals among prisoners that spun out of control and forced the guards to abandon the facility. Prison worker Aryawan said it was the worst riot he had seen in five years working at the prison, which is notorious for violence, and located just a few kilometers from the tourist beaches of Kuta.

Four Western men were driven away on one of the buses, followed by nine women - including Westerners and Asians - on a second bus. Seventeen Indonesian inmates were seen leaving aboard a third bus.

“We’re fine, we’re fine but there’s no food,” an inmate shouted to a passing reporter from a guard tower as five other shirtless and tattooed prisoners flashed “thumbs-up” signs. Kerobokan is one of Indonesia’s most notorious prisons, with a volatile mix of inmates including convicted murderers, sex offenders and others guilty of violent crimes.

Bali police spokesman Hariadi, said the situation inside had calmed markedly after a day of mounting tensions when security forces appeared to be ready to storm the prison. “Following mediation, the prisoners have promised not to cause any more anarchy,” Hariadi said.

There have been a number of riots there in recent years, including one triggered by a police drug raid in June. Australia’s foreign ministry said that all 12 Australian prisoners at Kerobokan, including two on death row and six serving life sentences, were accounted for.

About 100 heavily armed police, armored vehicles and a pair of water cannon remained positioned outside the prison walls after the buses left and hundreds of security forces moved out.

Bali Police Chief Totoy Herawan Indra met a delegation of inmates to discuss the reasons behind the overnight violence as well as their living conditions inside the facility. “They pointed the finger at favors by the guards for some ‘special’ prisoners,” the police chief said.

It was unclear how many of the Australians were among the evacuees from Kerobokan, which housed 1,015 inmates - more than three times its intended capacity. Convicted Australian drug smuggler Scott Rush, a member of the so-called Bali Nine gang who is in his 20s and serving a life sentence, was seen leaving in a police car with sirens blaring. Bambang Krisbanu, a security official at the justice ministry, said most of the Australians had chosen not to be evacuated, including convicted drug trafficker Schapelle Corby. Handoko earlier said all foreigners and the prison’s 125 female inmates should be moved because authorities feared for their safety. “There was a big possibility that the foreign inmates could be used by the rioting inmates as bargaining chips to press for their demands,” he said. The rioters’ main demand

Indonesia experts note that favors for special prisoners in the country’s prisons is commonplace. Giving some inmates the opportunity of meeting relatives without limitations of time or schedule is one example. Another is granting the richer prisoners an unauthorized furlough to enjoy time outside. However, the ‘special treatment’ most of time consists of letting in goods like food, air conditioners, and decent mattresses for wealthier prisoners who can pay off the guards. In Kerobokan, a small number of inmates can even leave their cells “for external medical treatment”. Kerobokan is Bali’s best-known prison. It was built to house 300 people but it currently holds more than a thousand. The recent incident is the latest in a series. (February 24th 2012)

Bird Flu Kills 12-year-old Indonesian Boy on Bali A 12-year-old boy has died of bird flu on Bali, bringing the human death toll in the country worst hit by the illness to 154 since 2005, a health official said. Rita Kusriastuti, an official at Indonesia’s health ministry, said Saturday (25/2) that the boy died Tuesday after suffering high fever and breathing difficulties for more than a week. Tests showed the boy was infected with the H5N1 virus. The boy is suspected to have had indirect contact with poultry, Kusriastuti said. He was the fourth person to die of bird flu in Indonesia this year. Statistics show that while avian influenza is still active in Indonesia, the number of cases is on the decline. Last year saw nine fatalities, the lowest number of human deaths from bird flu in Indonesia since 2005. Bird flu has killed at least 347 people worldwide since it began ravaging poultry stocks in 2003. Indonesia is the worst affected country, with 185 confirmed infections. (February 25th 2012) Public Transportation Fares Set to Rise With Fuel Price The price of public transportation tickets will rise by as much as 35 percent from April following the government’s plan to increase the price of subsidized fuel, transportation operators said on Friday (24/2). The government plans to increase the price of subsidized gasoline, which sells for Rp 4,500 a liter, by as much as Rp 1,500 a liter from April in a bid to reduce the impact of the subsidy on the state budget. Transportation Ministry officials said that the government was close to signing off on economy-class bus fare increases of between 15 percent and 20 percent from April. The industry is facing additional concerns, and possible extra costs, over safety issues after a series of fatal bus accidents. Last year, the ministry imposed sanctions on 10 bus companies caught breaking the law, including the revocation of an operator’s license in some cases. The government forecast spending on fuel subsidies this year to reach Rp 124 trillion, equivalent to 10 percent of total national government revenue.( February 24th 2012) Australia Congratulates Indonesia’s First Street Football Tournament The Australian Embassy congratulated on Tuesday (28/2) the League of Change, Indonesia’s first national street football tournament, for using sport to give opportunities for marginalized communities around the country. Eight provinces were represented at the three-day tournament organized by Rumah Cemara, a Bandung-based organization that works to increase the quality of life and reduce stigma towards people living with HIV, the Australian said in its official website here on Tuesday. The Australian Embassy awarded Rumah Cemara with a A$10,000 Allan Taylor Sports Grant to help run the event. Australian Ambassador to Indonesia, Greg Moriarty, said sport is an excellent tool to improve the lives of people at the grass-roots level. Rumah Cemara has used football to spread its message and Aditia Taslim, Event Coordinator for the League of Change, said that running a national tournament such as this has been a dream for a long time. The Allan Taylor Sports Grant is sponsored through the Australia-Indonesia Institute and is designed to further develop sport in Indonesia. The late Allan Taylor (a former Australian Ambassador to Indonesia) was a keen sportsperson. The award aims to foster cooperation between Australia and Indonesia in sports and recognize significant contributions to the development of sport in Indonesia. (February 28th 2012)

The court scrapped a section of the 1974 Marriage Law that stipulates children born outside of marriage only have civil ties with their mother and their mother’s family. The nine justices of the court agreed that the article was unconstitutional. The court ruled that children born outside of legal marriages could have civil ties with both their parents’ families “as long as the children can be proven scientifically or with equipment in accordance with the law to have blood ties with the man.”

Budget carrier Air Australia collapsed Friday (17/2), stranding thousands of passengers as its domestic flights and international services to Honolulu, Bali and Phuket were all grounded. The news came a day after embattled Australian flag carrier Qantas said it was slashing at least 500 jobs, cutting costs and closing two international routes after posting an 83 percent slump in first-half net profits. In a statement, the Brisbane-based Air Australia, whose 300 staff have been stood down, said it had appointed KordaMentha as voluntary administrators. “In the shortterm, the fleet will be grounded. It currently appears that there are no funds available to meet operational expenses so flights will be suspended immediately,” the administrator said. “For clarity, it also appears highly unlikely there will be any flights in the short to medium term.” Air Australia flew international routes to the Indonesian island of Bali, Thai holiday paradise Phuket, and Hawaii, and domestically to Brisbane, Melbourne, and Perth, Derby and Port Hedland in Western Australia. Administrator Mark Korda said up to 4,000 passengers were currently overseas with Air Australia return tickets and advised them to find alternative arrangements. (February 17th 2012) Special Team set up for 2013 Bali Summit The Indonesian government has officially established a special committee to prepare for the upcoming AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, which will be held in Bali in 2013. Coordinating Economic Minister Hatta Rajasa said in Jakarta on Tuesday that the government had set up a team of ministers who would be responsible for ensuring that Indonesia becomes a good host during the summit. “The main team will be headed by Foreign Minister [Marty Natalegawa]. The head of the organizing team will be State Secretary [Sudi Silalahi], and the head of the infrastructure team will be [Tourism and Creative Economy Minister] Mari Pangestu,” Hatta said, adding that he would be in overall charge of the group. Hatta was discussing preparations for the summit at his office with Finance Minister Agus Martowardojo, Mari, Sudi and Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Jero Wacik. Meanwhile, Agus said that as in the previous summit, Indonesia would represent the interests of developing countries at the 2013 APEC Summit. Agus said that the government had prepared three main themes to be discussed at the summit. Hatta said that one of the themes would concern economic development in the Asia-Pacific region. Deputy Transportation Minister Bambang Susantono said all the preparation of infrastructure for the summit, such as the expansion of Ngurah Rai International Airport and the construction of a new toll road, had run as expected. “The renovation and expansion of the airport in Bali is still on track. This project will be finished in May,” he said. Bambang said that Selaparang Airport in Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, would also be utilized as a parking lot for the aircraft of state leaders throughout the summit. The development of toll roads which connect Tanjung Benoa and Nusa Dua and Ngurah Rai would also be finished by mid 2012, according to Hatta. (February 22nd 2012)

Letters To Bali Advertiser Farming Methods Hello Ibu Cat, As usual I like your articles in the BA. In the last piece you write something that I would like to comment on. “A recent trend back to traditional cultivation techniques is ironically resisted by farmers who believe that rice can’t be grown without chemicals. When asked how their grandfathers farmed, they look blank.” I personally know some of these farmers for years and years. I often ask them the same or similar questions. It takes awhile, a lot of patience, to get the answer out of them but if you do the reasons are always money, money, money. For food, the school of their children. How can you financially beat a crop of rice that can be harvested three times a year - sometimes four times a year in a good year they tell me - when going back to their grandfathers days means a crop once a year with often even a loss (because then they had no pesticides). They are often very aware of this as it is ingrained in their day to day rhythms. It’s just that they usually can’t voice these things well. They are completely untrained in rational thinking and verbalizing. Apart from that they feel -which is in their culture- that it is impolite to come up with a counterargument. It makes it feel like a ‘discussion’ or fight of words which they avoid. You have to know them well so they know they can trust you in telling these things. So when you say that “they look blank” in my ears it makes them look stupid and that’s not the case. They are financially stuck. Let me give you an example that illustrates this very well. Recently a Balinese couple that I have known for a long time asked me to ‘invest’ in a piece of land which they wanted to ‘contract’. I was asked to give 2 million so they could rent an unclear number of are (“ya munkin 40” -maybe 40 are- which seemed unlikely to me, but I know the land so it’s okay). They would harvest three times two karung (big bags). One for them and one for me, or better: in a year three for them and three for me. One karung brings them around Rp. 850.000. So three in a year therefore two and a half million. So my ‘investment’ would bring me about half a million after a year. (I wonder.. but my goals was not profit but helping and learning myself). So imagine they would change their crop for a less profitable one... they are poor and every rupiah counts for the school, the health fees etc, etc. So you see it is already in the system of transactions: in the price for contracting the land. Everybody counts on three harvests so ‘going back’ is not an option to anybody. They are stuck financially but not only financially. There is a sad component to this story. The rice -as you very well know since you wrote about it yourself- has way less vitamins which is one of the reasons Bali has so many woman die during or right after giving birth. The reason being that the new rice varieties do not have the time to absorb all the nutrients they need. Or for that matter all the protective minerals. So they are also weak and need pesticides and fungicides. So to ask them -which I often did- to go back to eating the much healthier (and less work needing) older varieties of rice is useless. And asking them to go back to the still older tradition of eating ubi-ubian, or ketela2, that is roots, on which their grandparents lived when they were young, meets the same blank look. They cannot go against the trend which is faster and faster food with less and less fiber and less and less minerals (the once good old foods taste bitter to them now!) so the food nowadays is sweeter and more watery. But it has less taste so they are get addicted to the hot sambal/lombok. The food sweeter? Yes the modern rice has a much higher glycemic index (speed of uptake of sugar in blood). So we see diabetes rising steadily here in Indonesia. They are addicted to the spike in blood sugar (the ‘kick’) and feel weak or “pusing” (dizzy) without it. This addiction carries on to wanting sweet treats so the traditional piece of nanka (jackfruit) in the warung, which does not give this ‘kick’, has since long been exchanged for the candy bars which ruin the teeth of the children and are all packed in the plastic we see everywhere on the beaches. One more side-effect: obesity. The empty sugars give them lots of calories but no nourishment so they keep on eating. So again they are stuck. This time food-wise. How to escape? They won’t do what we westerners ask them because we don’t have the real answers either. We are also stuck in the same trap. To escape we need to look at the bigger picture. We, the west, introduced all these modern farming techniques that produce all this fast food in Bali. Our western culture is also addicted to money and fast food. Even way before the Balinese. Only here in Bali/Indonesia/Asia it goes all much and much faster. They are great a copying. If you look at the current obesity explosion here in Bali: I have the impression they will soon catch up and overhaul us. So is there a solution to all of this? Yes, awareness of the deeper causes of the problem which is our deviating from some basic laws of nature. The most basic being that you cannot pollute the body unpunished with impure ingredients like the fast foods we are creating more and more and which make us dependent upon (read: addicted to) them and on a total culture that supports all this. We then lose our health and happiness (which go together) which is a very sad thing to see with all my Balinese friends. Health problems costs them all their savings. And happiness problems lead to gang fights, robberies and loss of culture. Of course there are more things that pollute our body which also should be avoided but unfortunately most people are not aware yet that the biggest polluter is the stuff we put in our mouth every day. My solution: the raw food life-style as a model of how we can create a happy, healthy and sustainable culture. Raw fooders go back to respecting the land, the farmers that grow the food and their foundation, their own body, the temples of our spirit, a product of billions of years of evolution. We have to start looking at our foundations. You can only build so high as your foundation is deep.

Thank you for your thoughtful and informed letter. In past years I’ve touched in my column on many of the points you brought up such as growing and consuming heritage rice, nutrition, respect for farmers and bridges to more lucrative markets for chemicalfree produce. Because this piece focused on subak culture, I didn’t have space to expand on the issues you mention.I would never think or imply that Balinese farmers are stupid... far from it. I have enormous respect for them as they struggle to keep their balance in these rapidly changing times. I know they are stuck -- caught between spiraling production costs/social expectations and low returns for their crops. Through projects with Rotary Club Ubud Sunset and Slow Food Ubud and my column, I try to keep the issue of sustainable agriculture on the radar. A solution? I believe that until society in general becomes more engaged with food production, learns to respect farmers and is willing to pay a fair price for food the situation will continue to degrade, not just in Bali but all over the world. I wish I felt more optimistic about this. I look forward to seeing your post in the BA and thank you for helping to keep the critically important issue of sustainable agriculture in Bali in the public eye. Awareness and education are indeed the engines of change.

The full moon is in Virgo as we start this fortnight. The culmination of the Pisces moon cycle as it meets its polar opposite sign and brings out the qualities of both signs. The Sun continues traveling in Pisces until the 20th. Mercury moves into retrograde on the 12th and stays in reverse motion until the beginning of April and retracing those steps of late degree Pisces. As always beware those glitches in communication and movement during this phase. Jupiter trines Pluto on the 13th and both planets are in earth signs marking a solid period of transformation. Mars continues in retrograde motion in Virgo and creates a beautiful grand trine aspect to the Jupiter in Taurus and the Pluto in Capricorn. Special emphasis is placed on planets around the 10 degree mark. Chiron is starting to move out of orb with Neptune now and that marked phase of healing that has been with us for past few years’ eases off as Neptune settles comfortably into her own sign of Pisces, through until 2025. Perhaps Chiron then was healing the wounds of the past to make way for the expansion in the field of the heart as Neptune brings unconditional love to Planet. This is and continues to be a big month of deep change that is promoting flow and the following of our intuitive guidance. Dissolving those attachments, ideas and beliefs that have held us bound for too long. Let go now, as the new moon Uranus cycle on the 22nd promises more surprises. FULL MOON 18 Virgo 13 March 8, 2012 05:41 p.m.

ARIES: Just a little longer as Mars finishes its round of retrograde and then things will move forward once more. During this fortnight and its wonderful earthy trine you will complete much in your life in preparation of the movement of Mars in its forward trajectory. Pluto brings endings and Jupiter brings new beginnings and they always appear to go together anyway. Be willing to transform your life and take a very discerning look at your self, your relationships and in particular your sexual energy and power. Are you manipulating people or are you living in integrity and alignment with your own highest values? Remember this is about feeling right with you.

LIBRA: Saturn in Libra is still creating a trine to Neptune. Neptune is filled with Divine Inspiration, guidance and creative imagination. Some say these are all the same thing. Whichever way you look at it, this is a superb time to be putting pen to paper in any creative thing you so choose. Neptune also brings to the fore your emotional self. It is normal for you to keep your balanced state or at least look like you are emotionally sorted. If your feathers get a little ruffled now and you are asked to move beyond your comfort zone, know that this is all a part of these rapidly changing times and do your best to not take it too personally.

TAURUS: Venus is in your sign now and brings some calmness to your relationships. A moment of luck as she teams up with Jupiter and completes that beautiful earth trine. You will be feeling extremely fortunate although this period still marks a time of transformation and deep inner changes. Moving forward from a solid foundation will set you in good stead for the changes to come. Many will be lucky in Love and although this doesn’t come easily, it will be an amazing and again, very transformative relationship. For those of you recommitting and for those starting afresh this promises to be a year full of Love. Make the most of it.

SCORPIO: The highlight this fortnight is the grand Earth trine that includes your ruling planet Pluto. This is a great time to create a solid base for any new enterprise or relationship. The urge to move rapidly is pushing you although the first steps of the new beginning are always the release of the past and all that is outmoded. One step at a time brings results for you. There will be a natural movement forward when the time is right and Mars goes direct in April. Patience is what is required now, so use your power to make the adjustments that will create solidity and clarity. Your intentions backed by clear thinking and level headedness.

GEMINI: Aries is about self and Pisces is very much about service to others. Mercury your ruler will be moving backwards through both signs this fortnight. Cultivating relationships with others through your own authenticity is a good idea if you don’t want to lose yourself and what you stand for. Sacrificing your own needs for those closest to you is unnecessary. Communicate with honesty although the temptation to embellish or omit the truth is tempting. Arguments are also highly probable. How you manage that one is left up to your own discretion. This is a great time to revise and take a step back from your picture to get an overview.

SAGITTARIUS: You are another of the major players in this month’s trine. Jupiter rules your sign and urged onwards by Pluto becomes a dynamic and yet stable force for change in your life. It has been about accumulation and slowing down a little over these past months. This has come as a surprise to many, although by now you are getting the hang of these adjustments. Remember all in good time and soon you’ll be back to your old adventurous self with a brand new flavor and great deal more authenticity. This has been and continues to be a amazing journey of unfolding. After this month you will feel unstoppable in your quests.

CANCER: March and April both promise to be momentous months of change, growth and transformation. Your life won’t look the same again and nor would you want it to. Once the dust has settled and you adjust to all of these things life becomes much clearer and with hindsight you will get a perspective that soothes your mind. For now enjoy the ride and be willing to make constant adjustments as well as let go and allow. The more you struggle or resist the more you will feel unrest and unfairness in your emotional body. There is nothing more to do than relax wherever and whenever possible. Regroup your energies and be prepared to move when called.

CAPRICORN: Pluto in your sign creating that harmonious trine in Earth signs is like a breath of fresh air to you. You may finally get to put your feet up and relax a little. Although the transformation game has been hot on your heels of late, this round of release will be the easiest one yet and you will immediately feel the benefits particularly in your most personal of relationships. Pisces month is an easier time for you if you allow yourself to flow and surrender to the synchronic order of life just a little more than usual. Once you get the hang of this a great deal of stress is released from your nervous system.

LEO: The Sun is Pisces for almost the whole of this fortnight. Pisces is a water sign and very mutable and very wet. This could bring a little dampness to all of your endeavors. Water and earth seem to dominate now and if you are slow to get started with projects better to leave them until the Aries (fiery) cycle begins on the 20th and new moon on the 22nd. Perhaps you could take this time to retreat and go inwards. Slow down, unwind and deeply relax. Better to make hay while the Sun shines, or so the old adage goes. A little patience then is required this fortnight. You are about to embark on a new beginning phase, so try rejuvenation now.

AQUARIUS: A lot of visions come to you during this very Piscean time. As the New Moon teams up with Uranus to begin the next fortnight you will get the opportunity to put these visions into practical use. A lot of energy will be released at that time to bring these new ideas to fruition and give them a solid base. What is required now is patience as the slower aspects of creation catch up with your lightning speed thoughts. As trying as this can be for you, garner the inner strength to go the distance without becoming distracted and you will reach your goals as well as witness the success of those around you. It can get lonely going it alone.

VIRGO: This is a great fortnight for you also with the grand earth trine affecting you directly. Mars in Virgo has retraced its steps so it could join Jupiter and Pluto in there transformation dance. How are things looking for you? What is it time to let go of and how can you economize or expand your material base. This transit can operate both ways for you for it is often in the letting go that we receive those very hearts desires which up until now seemed ever elusive. You will be pleasantly surprised to find unexpected gifts and donations coming your way. Allow yourself to receive as this could be the greatest gift of all.

PISCES: Indulge your senses in these final days of the Pisces Sun journey. Your year has just begun and you are in store for many blessings. This cycle saw the Sun, Moon, Neptune and Chiron all lined up to usher in a year of deep profound and lasting changes. You are a natural born healer and it is time now to share whatever your individual gifts may be with others. There is no time for self doubt or procrastination and you will find that the more you dissolve your addictions the more you will simply fall into the truth of your own nature. Allow the healing waters to wash you clean. You were born to shine your light.

BA Feature


The Literary Lure of Bali Casual Conversations with Bali Based Authors and Publishers Part I A visit to any respectable book store in Bali will reveal a big collection of books with Bali as its central theme: novels, fiction, non-fiction, coffee table type books, books for foodies, books for budding architects and interior decorators, art books for art lovers, books about painting, batik and textiles, krisses, music, museums, masks and puppets, Bali customs, art and culture, flora and fauna, Bali anthropology, geography, travel and guide books, books with short stories and poetry, books for kids, books to learn Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Bali. In short, any subject related to all things Bali will yield a pretty cover, an enticing narrative, and an invitation to be seduced by the color and music of the island. It’s hard to browse and leave empty handed.

While the subject matter beguiles, the authors of these tomes intrigue as well. After all, so much has been written about Bali from the early days of tourism starting in the beginning 1900s, that it is easy to assume that by now everything has been said, described, alluded to, taken under the loupe, dissected and bisected. Yet, more books appear on the display tables and in the racks; some more of the same, others a refreshingly different look at the same subject matter. It prods one to look behind the covers in search of the creators and word smiths who write so enticingly about all things Bali. Who are these writers who eloquently and convincingly engage the reader with their stories, descriptions, dreamscapes, and treatment of Bali subject matter? Are they perennial modern day bohemian wanderers who decided at last to come to rest in Bali? Are they fly in-fly out tourists or visiting anthropologists who come, look around, like what they see, and purport to become the authority on what they write about? Are they experts, hobbyists, anthropologists, artists, musicians, photographers, travel writers who find Bali to be a fascinating and inexhaustible treasure throve for their chosen topic?

work of Balinese, Indonesian, and Bali inspired expatriate artists, his favorite subject matter was a choice that was made some 30 odd years ago when he settled in Bali. As a prominent international art critic and recognized authority, Jean Couteau writes extensively about all manner of art forms such as the visual, representational, decorative and performing arts. He is thoroughly and intimately familiar with the art scene in Indonesia and has made in depth studies about the various styles in traditional as well as contemporary art. He writes about aesthetics, art events and exhibits, museum collections, about Balinese culture and cultural events, traditions and spiritualism. As art connoisseur and art critic, his articles and books exude the intellectual and erudite perspective he brings to his writing. As art historian he displays an educated comprehension and appreciation of the themes, aspirations, meanings and symbolism in Balinese classical and contemporary art. Through his writings he seeks to convey his personal enthusiasm and love of the Balinese art forms to the public and wants to explain the inherent meaningfulness and clarify the relevance of Balinese art to present day living and outlook. For British born William Ingram, author of the humorous and endearing book A Little Bit One O’clock, Bali is all about approaching life and its people with a good dose of openness, trust and humor. William has been living in Bali since the early 1990s and has become very involved and integrated into the Balinese community in Ubud. He and his wife Jean are the co-founders of Threads of Life, the textile gallery that encourages the revitalization of traditional weaving techniques in Bali and other islands of the archipelago. When he first came to Bali in 1989, William embarked on a unique experience living with a Balinese family and becoming wise to all the idiosyncrasies of living life “A Little Bit One O’clock”. He explains that the book’s title comes from a Balinese colloquialism which in essence says you should not take

Indonesian partner and settle here, where they run a restaurant business and where he finds the isolation and environment conducive to his writing. After 12 years, he feels that his sojourn in Bali has resulted in him becoming more integrated in Bali and would find it hard to change direction, though he misses the intellectual stimulation of a vibrant city like New York where he lived previously. Jamie regularly writes journalistic essays, travel articles and about Asian art and culture for local and international publications. His books have been published to great acclaim. He claims that Bali per se has not influenced his writing. Yet both Bali and Java feature prominently in his writings. Bali was the setting of Jamie’s first novel Andrew and Joey: A Tale of Bali, a gossipy, epistolary style novel with a parading cast of characters chronicling the adventures of a gay couple and their deteriorating relationship as a result of their stay in Bali. The tale is like a metaphorical unraveling of paradise and the romanticism associated with it. His later novel The Java Man highlights the vagaries of cultural differences between the orient and the west. Not in a clichéd fashion but by cleverly highlighting the naiveté so often demonstrated by unwitting westerners in their approach to Asian culture. The more recent Rimbaud in Java traces a fascinating portrait of an unlikely tourist in Java as portrayed by the French prodigal poet. Jamie admits to an affinity with all things Asian and is especially fascinated by Central Java as the cradle of the culture, art and architecture that preceded the migration of the Majapahit kingdom from Java to Bali. The lure of Bali is also evident and embodied in the colorful array of Bali published glossy magazines like the tony Bali Style, swanky Hello Bali, and the cheeky Yak. The feature writers for these magazines gush with never-ending enthusiasm about the glamorous, trendy lifestyle of Bali. While the posh villa lifestyle as defined by these glossies seems to be a bit removed from the real and indigenous Bali, it is eagerly embraced by a lot of expats who are trying to shape and define the kind of Bali fantasy life they have dreamed about and yearned for. In contrast, Alistair Speirs, creator and publisher of the informative Now! Bali finds never-waning enthusiasm and inspiration in the discovery of the innate and true Bali. The magazine is cover to cover full with features and articles taking a closer look at the ethnic culture and heritage that shaped this island. Alistair is the proverbial white knight of all things indigenous. Now! Bali started publishing in 2009 in order to fill the perceived void of the other glossies. The focus of the magazine revolves almost exclusively around nature, culture, heritage, art and architecture. It also seeks to challenge the unbridled development that steers Bali towards a homogenous, cookie-cutter, bland bevy of resorts and tourist attractions, devoid of traditional Balinese style elements. The magazine’s mission is blatantly anti-real estate, anti-billboard and antipoverty.

From Dutch colonial times, the colorful world of Bali ritual, ceremony, art, dance and drama has been a popular subject. In 1895 Dutch writer C.J. Leendertz published an insightful book entitled Bali and the Balinese which is still in print. However, the book that started a regular tourist stampede was Bali 1912 by Gregor Krause, a young medical officer in the Dutch East India army who was posted to Bali in 1912-14. The book contains over 400 photographs illustrating Balinese daily life, customs, art and dance. Though the photos are all black and white, they nevertheless convey an exotic aura of the island and its people. The book caused much interest and curiosity in Europe and in its wake Bali was inundated by anthropologists, painters, artists, musicians, writers, and rich and famous tourists. Since that time much more has been written about Bali and many of these books are prominently displayed in the local book stores. A steady stream of writers wrote odes to Bali from the 1920s on to the present day. As time went on the books became more colorful and more focused. The richness of Bali’s culture, history, arts and geography seems inexhaustible. The colorful picture books and coffee table tomes on Bali culture, art, religion, community and customs are now a ubiquitous staple of the Bali bookstores. Illustrated by splendid photography they speak to the symbiotic fascination the writers have with their subject matter.

yourself too seriously and allow yourself to be a little bit zany in dealing with life in Bali. According to William, mastering this bit of folksy wisdom was essential to a smooth and harmonious adjustment from “western” style living and outlook to the different conditions and philosophies that permeate the Balinese cosmic lifestyle. The Balinese, he says, are genuinely very welcoming, accepting and tolerant of the foreigners in their midst. They are not dogmatic but natural extroverts and very sociable. This antithesis to western attitudes struck a chord with him and he happily immersed himself in learning and appreciating Bali culture, customs and language. In particular, the Balinese values of extended family and communal sharing as exemplified in Balinese society formed the catalyst to finding his own true vocation in life. With the creation of Threads of Life, a fair trade business that uses culture and conservation to alleviate poverty in rural Indonesia, William found his life’s calling. By helping local weavers resurrect their indigenous craft and assist them to form independent cooperatives to market their textiles, he pays homage to the many lessons he learned from his Balinese family. What started out as a spiritual quest has become a way of life, with elements of Balinese culture and spirituality well embedded in his life.

SCHEDULE THAT Astor Diamond Sunday Champagne Brunch (Sundays) This is a feast that you will have to book well in advance and don’t just turn up or you may find yourself turned away due to its popularity. St Regis, Bali won both first and second place in the competition for Bali’s Best Sunday Brunch. The deal at the Kayuputi restaurant includes a welcoming aperitif, Champagne, cocktails and canapes between 11 am and 12.30 pm. Lunch follows with the all you can eat concept. The menu is indeed magnificant and includes oysters, pastries, lobster, duck foie gras and a selection of cheeses. This is just a fraction of the foods on offer. A separate beverage package includes free flow Champagne, premium wines and cocktails from 12 pm to 3 pm. If you have visitors or want to do something different on a Sunday, this is the place to go. It is amazing, but remember to book well in advance or you might find yourself disappointed. If you choose the separate beverage package, a taxi might be advisable. When : from 11 am Cost : IDR995,000 (USD110) Where : Kayuputi Restaurant, St Regis, Kawasan Pariwisata, Nusa Dua,; Lot S6 Contact : 3006786

Battle of the Bands (14, 16 and 18 March) I think that it is time that Indonesia’s musical talent entered the world’s stage as there is some incredible talent right here and undiscovered internationally. A multitude of bands will take to the stage including Nymphea (Bali), Mister Botax (Bali), Brain of the Typical Male (Makassar), Kabar Baik (Amlapura,Bali), Sada (Bandung), Superman Is Dead (Bali), Balian (Bali), Sudirmanto Muchtar (Jambi), Morrgoth (Blitar), Dialog Dini Hari (Bali), StreetStar (Malang), and Black Finit (Jogjakarta). Bands will be judged by a panel of local industry experts and participating bands’ representatives. The winners will compete against eighty six other local band winners around the globe. Six bands will perform on 14 and 16 March respectively and the final live performance round will feature four bands. If you enjoy live music this will be a great opportunity to see some of Indonesia’s best talent. I’m curious about some of the band names too! When : 10 pm Where : Hard Rock Cafe, Jl Pantai, Kuta Contact : 755661

Internations Ubud Event (16 March) I first heard of Internations when I visited a friend living in the Middle East. I went to one of their functions and it was a fan-

tastic way to meet people and there were people there from all corners of the globe. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting like minded people who were all living extraordinary lives outside of their home country as we are indeed here in Bali. This is the Internation’s first Ubud function at the newly opened Betelnut noodle, satay bar and music lounge. Members will receive two for the price of one on beer, cocktails and other selected beverages together with complimentary krupuk and crackers. If you wish to have a meal you will receive a 15% discount on food. For those who live in the South of Bali, transport will be provided (at a small cost), leaving Kuta Central, Ace Hardware at 7 pm sharp and will pass through Sanur picking up on the opposite side of the road to Kopi Cafe. This will be a great way to meet new people and have an enjoyable evening. To attend the events you must first become a member. It’s very easy to join which you can do at the website below. Once you are a member register for this event by clicking on ‘Accept Invitation’. Joining Internations is a great way to meet people, make friends and network especially if you are new to Bali. When : 8 pm Where : Betelnut, Ubud Main Street Contact : 971426

The Iron Maidens (7 April) No, this is not Iron Maiden as they’ve already been to Bali but the Iron Maidens. The Iron Maidens are an all female tribute act to English heavy metal band Iron Maiden. The band formed in Los Angeles in 2001. They will perform live here in Bali and it is always great to have international bands performing here. I’ve actually never heard of them and so can’t offer any more information but I think that if you are a fan of heavy metal then they will definitely be worth seeing. You can book your tickets on-line at the website below. Cost When Where Contact

WINE DINNER (10 March) This has to be one of Bali’s most beautiful resorts, the Four Seasons, with breathtaking views over Jimberan Bay and its stunning sunsets. This is a very special evening with a five course dinner and wine pairing carefully prepared by Chef de Cuisine, Samuele Baudoino. The evening begins with predinner cocktails and canapes before embarking on a five course culinary journey with an amazing menu. I won’t mention all the dishes, just a few to tempt you directly from the menu. Chilled tuna carpaccio with water cress and spicy lemon graniten with Casale del Giglio “SATRICO“ Chardonnay, Sauvignon & Trebbiano Giallo,2009 and roast loin of lamb with taleggio wild mushroom crusted, creamy spinach and natural jus paired with Casale del Giglio, “MATER MATUTA” 85% Syrah & 15% Petit Verdot, 2007. This is all definitely making my mouth water as I write. Just as you do not think you can eat any more, there’s a wonderful chocolate dessert to conclude. Reservations are essential. If you haven’t been to this resort before, arrive early as the grounds make for a pleasant stroll and the Ganesha Gallery always has some super artwork by local and sometimes international artists. If you have a special celebration coming up, this is the perfect place to celebrate and I think it is good value at one of the top five star resorts in Bali. Cost

: IDR950,000 per person plus 21% tax and service (US$127). Where : Four Seasons Resort Bali, Jimbaran Bay Contact : 701010
