I heard that a huge mob of cool looking Harley Davidson motor bikes had descended on Ubud, and had parked outside Bebek Bengil (Dirty Ducks) at the bottom of Jl Hanoman. Either my spies were teasing or they had moved on by the time I got there. Instead – much more the style for Ubud - the dirty duck himself was trying out one of two little scooters, while their owners tucked into the restaurant’s famous fare. We’re delighted to receive and print funny, quirky or otherwise interesting photos of Ubud. Email to

Another great Saturday night option in Ubud; smooth sounding band ABAD21 has accepted a regular Saturday night gig at Indus Restaurant.

GERMAN CLASSIC FILMS Congratulations again to Black Beach Restaurant. They’ve added a stunning series of early black and white German movies to their weekly film offerings. Every Friday night from 8pm, we can take in a movie from the Goethe-Institut Indonesien’s film library collection - some of the most interesting and beautiful first sound movies ever made, beginning in 1930 and finishing on Friday 6 May with director Herbert Selpin’s 1943 film of the Titanic. Full program from www. Ph 0361-971353. Top of Jl Hanoman.

ABAD21 (it means 21st century) is led by Java-born Ito K u r d h i , considered by many to be the finest – and certainly the coolest – bass guitarist in Bali. He composes, arranges and plays smooth listening and dancing music, bringing traditional ethnic Indonesian elements into the band’s special blend of jazz, R&B and blues. Classically trained, Ito toured with jazz groups for several years - Dubai, South Africa, China. He has performed at Jakarta Jazz festival and played with New York hip-hop musician, Akim Funk Buddha, Ghana’s Afro Moses and American piano great, Herbie Hancock. 8pm-10.30pm, Sat. nights at Indus, on Jl Raya Sanggingan.

Please spread the word about the Children’s Library behind the football field on Jl. Monkey Forest. The library has reopened and expanded to include a new picture-book story corner and offer separate spaces for older children to read books quietly upstairs, while younger ones enjoy activities downstairs.

Take five delicious courses, four great Ubud restaurants, a spacious art gallery and some friendly shuttle drivers and you have the recipe for a great fund-raiser. For Sekolah Dyatmika the night was a resounding success, raising over 65 million rupiah ($US 7,000+) for a full gamelan and piano to enhance their music program.

Anyone can visit the library for free, to check out the 4600+ children’s books. The Friends of the Children’s Library group aims to promote literacy among Balinese children. To help, you can sponsor a child’s library membership (50,000rp annual membership fee plus a 250,000rp refundable deposit) so that the child can also borrow books. You can also join the Friends to help keep this great place viable for Ubud’s resident and visiting children. Call Denise, 08123847599, or email, Opening: 9am–5pm Wed-Sunday. HAPPY XL BIRTHDAY It’s hard to believe that XL Lounge and Bar is only a year old. Started by a couple of tall, strapping Dutch guys (hence the name) it has a Middle Eastern style, complete with shisha pipes and silky draped ceilings, and a friendly ambiance. Owner Herman often agrees to host a fundraiser for a good local cause, and generously changed XL’s back garden area to accommodate the crazy Friday Karaoke crowd, when their other spot closed down. Herman is one of the most welcoming people in Ubud, and of course this attitude rubs off on his staff, so they have a lot of repeat guests. I’m guessing they’ll also have many more birthdays. Congrats XL! Next to the Ubud Library, behind the football field on Jl Monkey Forest. BLOG OFF! I saw a new blog on Ubud the other day, which would have been hilarious if it wasn’t so appalling. Someone completely delighted that her clever fella had discovered a town where they can eat cheaply, have even cheaper home help and swan about by the pool and drink cocktails all day. Only problem, she decided was the Hindu processions, which clearly mucked up her travel between one bar and the next. Ubud is a rich and joyous mixture of Hindu religion and culture, other spiritual offerings, great tourist offerings and an assortment of ex-pat activities. Yup it is cheap to stay and eat, but pu-lees, if you think that the name for traffic jam is “upacara” (it means ceremony), go away.

Based on the “progressive dinner” concept, the “Dyatmika Dines Ubud” evening stretched leisurely from 4pm to 11pm, with 160 guests choosing their own pace between the various venues. Tapas from 4pm at Three Monkeys, a salad at Lamak, mojitos and snacks at Cafe Havana, then up to Terazo for main course. After the dinner itself, several hundred Dyatmika parents, students and staff joined dinner guests for a dance party, including dessert & coffee, raffle drawing and silent auction, at Komaneka Gallery on Jl Monkey Forest. Generous support came from everywhere, including volunteering of time and talents, and donations of vouchers for goods, services, and restaurant produce. TOO MANY BUSES!

At 12.30pm on a Saturday, my motor bike turned left onto Jl Raya Ubud from the Botanic Garden road, past the BCA bank, where I saw 15 huge buses parked along the road from the big statue. I turned into quiet Jazz Cafe street (Jalan Sukma) then left right left onto Jl Hanoman, where traffic was at a standstill. Before the petrol station I had counted 49 large buses – 40 of the monstrous huge buses and nine 35 seaters! Even on my bike, that short stretch of road took 35 minutes. Join the cause to keep these smoke-puffing, gas guzzling horrors out of Ubud. Facebook: Protect Ubud! Stop the Big Busses!

Should I give up my XP computer?

Ok, you have your computer that you still love or, maybe, only hate occasionally. It’s about five years old and is running Windows XP. Should you keep it as it is? Should you upgrade to Windows 7? Or should you dump it and get a brand new computer? First, to be clear, some computers are just so old that they won’t get you where you are going reliably anymore. But if your computer has a processor with a speed close to 1 gigahertz and it’s running Windows XP, you probably can squeeze a few more miles out of it for just a few rupiahs. Don’t move on up. If you’re successfully running Windows XP and didn’t make the jump to Windows Vista, it’s not a good idea to move from XP to Windows 7. The minimum requirements for Windows 7 are similar to what’s required for Vista. You need a processor that runs at 1 gigahertz or better; a DirectX 9 graphics card; and 1 gigabyte of RAM. Even if your old computer barely squeaks by and meets those specifications, I recommend sticking with Windows XP. Those are very iffy minimums. While your computer would survive the upgrade, it’ll run faster if you stick with XP. Wait until you buy a replacement computer. Getting a bit of speed back. It’s a good bet your XP computer just doesn’t seem fast enough. There are a couple of things you can do about it. For starters, make sure you are regularly checking it for adware and spyware. That stuff can add a huge load on both the processor and even on your Internet connection. So start by using a program such as the free one you’ll find at You may also need to add a bit of speed by bumping up your RAM. If you have less than a gigabyte then move to 2 gigabytes. RAM prices are cheap and, with the help of the manual for your computer, either printed or online at the manufacturer’s Web site, it’s easy to snap in the new chips. Or just visit your local PC shop or RIMO.

A new video card can help at times, too. A relatively inexpensive card will usually be an upgrade for computers that are four years old or so. Keep the amount you spend on that old computer to a minimum. Help for troubled computers. Some old computers have more serious problems. They freeze often and generally act as weird as your strangest relative. The best remedy for that — this works for computers and not relatives — is starting over. Back up your data and then reformat the hard disk. You’ll then need to reinstall Windows from your installation disk, then reinstall all your programs from their original disks, then restore the data from your backup. If you go that route, keep in mind that there are a bunch of gotchas. For instance, you need to make sure you have your original Windows installation disc as well as its activation code. You’ll also need installation discs for all your programs. And before you start, make sure your backup is good by trying to restore a few individual files before starting the reformat. If this entire process seems like too much for you, get help from a knowledgeable friend, or spend time Googling to get precise instructions, or take it into a shop. Even for those who find the process easy, it’s still a time-consuming hassle, but it’s the best way I know to get rid of multiple problems on a desktop. Laptops, however, are a different story. Follow this Web link, for a good explanation of how to safely remove data from a laptop’s hard drive. The page also offers a link to a free program that will do this safely.

So to save you some money will cost you time and some worry. Just either take your time, like a very long weekend, or take your computer into your reliable computer repair shop or contact your reliable friend. The main key is to be sure to have all your data backed up. One thing you can do is to make a list of all the program you use often. Then check each one to see where it saves it’s data. You can do this by File/Save As.. and see where it wants to save your data as the default. Hopefully this will always be in your Documents folder. If that is the case then just back up that folder. However, if some other folders are used, make a note of it and back up those folders as well. Huge external hard drives have really come down in price. A 500GB external drive should be under US$100. A 1,000GB (or 1TB) drive should be under US$200. So, go ahead and buy a huge drive and just copy your entire C: drive to it. This should save all your data and you can sleep at night. I wish you good luck. ============================================================================================ Have a question or problem? Write me at I’ll try and answer as soon as I can.

The Xeriscape Concept

Water plays an important role in the development and sustainability of our gardens and times of drought and irregular weather patterns have meant that we need to rethink how we garden. In the tropics we have a wet and a dry season, but there can also be extended periods of dry even in the rainy season! Xeriscaping is an increasingly popular gardening technique based on conserving water within garden or landscaped areas. Originally it was mostly used in arid regions or based on arid gardens, but its principles can be used anywhere to help promote water conservation. The concept is based on a number of practical techniques, to design a landscape or garden around limited water use. Xeriscaping does not necessarily have to mean that your garden will consist of rocks and cacti. It involves choosing plants that are appropriate to their site and creating a landscape that can be maintained with minimal watering. Xeriscaping is not a style or category of garden design it is a set of common sense guidelines to gardening in harmony with your environment. It can be applied to any type of garden or landscape design.

lead to higher evaporation rates and is literally a waste of water. Drought tolerant plants get no more water than needed to look good (cacti generally survive well off natural rainfall), as do sansevieria and agapanthus. It is preferable for soil to have good water storage capacity, but also drain well. This is achieved by increasing the amount of organic material in the soil, and keeping it well aerated through consistent composting. Improving the soil will also encourage deeper roots. Mulching is another important aspect of xeriscaping as it helps the soil to retain moisture. Cover the soil surface with dry leaves, bark, wood chips, stone or gravel. Different coloured stone and gravel can be an interesting and creative addition to the garden beds. The mulch helps to keep the plant roots cool, minimizes evaporation from the soil, and reduces weed growth which would otherwise further consume water resources.

An important aspect of xeriscaping is plant selection and grouping. Base your plant selections and locations on those that will flourish in your regional climate and microclimate. The trees that you see growing locally in the wild will most likely survive in your garden and in Bali this would include Frangipani, Pandan, Papaya and almost any palm tree, and there are so many palms to choose from! Lawns have always been considered thirsty. Minimise turf areas, or use drought tolerant grass species where turf is needed at all (for childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play areas). In xeriscaping it is not so much about being lawn-less, but about having less lawn. Buffalo Grass or Rumput Gajah is the easiest to grow in Bali. Having hard landscape features like pathways and paved entertainment areas are also really good ways to fill out landscape space. Many plants differ in their water requirements. Be clever and select plants with the same water needs and group these together. This is quite necessary. Plants that require more water (for example, vegetables, fruits, and certain flowers) are grouped together. The less water efficient plants may also be sheltered from the wind and sun by planting them in shade or diffused light (under trees or next to a walls), to decrease the amount of water they need. A garden can be broken up into different watering zones. For example one area can contain a shady rainforest retreat which contains philodendrons, heliconias and orchids. There could also be a drier area of the garden using well know hardy plants like euphorbias, aloe, agapanthus, bougainvillea and palms. For an extremely dry area garden some obvious choices are plants in the cacti or agave family. Take lavender or rosemary for example. They are found throughout the world and can make do with minimal tending. They are cultivated in many gardens just for the fragrance and beautiful flowers. A good design allows watering requirements to be segregated amongst different areas of the garden. The timing of watering is another important aspect of xeriscaping. Watering is best done in the morning or evening, when it is cooler and less likely to be lost to evaporation. Also avoid watering in high wind, as this will

We only have a finite amount of water and some years even less than others. By grouping plants, providing drought tolerant plants, amending the soil and using mulch you will be conserving on water use. You will also have a healthier garden and need less fertilizers and pesticides. Everything that you do in your environment will eventually affect your water source. You may not think that the chemical fertilizer and pesticide that you use on your plants is excessive, but the combined run-off from us all is quite considerable. Xeriscaping is a good way to conserve water and its quality whilst still having a strong and healthy garden. The benefits of this gardening technique are for many people. Primarily there will be more water available for other uses and other people. Employing these principles will also translate to easier garden maintenance, giving you more time to sit back and watch your garden grow! Lower water bills are merely a fringe benefit!

Mercury, Uranus and Sun all enter Aries this fortnight. Uranus for the next 8 years and making squares to Pluto all the way through until 2015. Uranus is the unpredictable, eccentric and erratic Planet of our Solar System. With it’s unusual orbit and axial wobble it brings uncertainty as it pushes and prods Pluto. Uranus is radical and wants revolution and change. Pluto on the other hand demands transformation or death or transformation through death. A powerful little Planet with it’s mission to bring about regeneration, and the abolition of unsatisfactory systems in Government, Military and Monetary Organizations (transiting the sign of Capricorn until 2024). Uranus in Aries (a little like the outlaw Robin Hood, robbing the rich to give to the poor) will create enough havoc and chaos to unsettle the most self-assured and self-righteous establishments. This cycle of change has already been underway since November 2008, although the movement of Uranus into Aries (being both a cardinal and a fire sign) adds a certain sense of urgency and determination. There is a playful side to this Aries nature, as there was with Robin, although stern and formidable Capricorn doesn’t always get the joke. As we move into the final Underworld of the Mayan Calendar on March 9, Unity Consciousness becomes the theme. Find ways for yourself, to do things with a lightness of heart. Joy, appreciation and gratitude go a long way now, as all worldly endeavors become challenged. FULL MOON 28° Virgo 48’ March 20, 2011 2:11 a.m.

ARIES: By the end of this fortnight there will be a definite shift in your energy and you will be a much sought after character in your community. With your innovative new ideas and vitality to encourage and implement them, others will be seeking your advice and service. A wild ride is in store for you, so get any past matters out of the way and be prepared for unexpected twists and turns in all areas of your life. I can almost feel the adrenaline surging as you read these words. Although the first square from Uranus to Pluto doesn’t occur until 2012, you will feel the undercurrents. like tectonic plate movement immediately.

LIBRA: Being friends with your significant other is of great importance to you at this time. You are developing ways of being together which are new for you both. Experiment a little and be willing to try something previously avoided. You will both benefit from expanding out into the larger community and using it as a platform to get feedback and support. Any restrictions you may have previously felt will be lifted now with this movement. Friendships form a healthy base from which integrity and honesty spring forth. Your confidence grows and with support you feel encouraged to express yourself in new ways.

TAURUS: Venus in Aquarius this fortnight challenging you to find your deep caring for others. If you have surplus of any material possessions you may wish to pass them on to others less fortunate at this time. A good time to release some of the clutter in your life, freeing you up to move with more efficiency and at the drop of a hat, if need be. Your significant other may be demanding some more alone time. You need not be threatened by this. It’s good for all of us to step out on our own, from time to time. To feel our own energy field as it is no longer imprinted by the vibratory field of the beloved.

SCORPIO: Pressure eases a little now and you get to integrate and discern the information that has recently come your way. If there is unrest around you, perhaps it is best to just leave it there, where it belongs. No need for you to take it onboard and to try and sort out other people’s problems for them. If they ask, then it’s a different matter. This accelerated momentum and impetus to grow has you making adjustments and changes often. Take all of this in your stride and assist those who are around you at this time to keep moving forward. As particular issues are highlighted, deal with them then.

GEMINI: Mercury in Aries, is looking for a debate, if not an argument over these coming weeks. Due for another of it’s retrogrades in April, this could turn out to be a long disagreement, as it stays in that sign through until May. It may be a good time to agree to disagree as there will be no easy solution here and with all the other Planets in this sign, everyone will be in defense mode. Your thinking is quick and you can move with spontaneity, although precision is not a key factor now. Better to leave really important decisions until mid-May, along with other detailed work. It would be wise to think before you speak.

SAGITTARIUS: Jupiter your ruler is hurtling ahead at great speed now. You are able to achieve much and start new projects with much gusto and enthusiasm.The recent square to Pluto was like rocket fuel. Be mindful and try not to overdo. The cost is always burn-out and lack of focus on detail. In over-looking details you could offend others. Pushing people out of the way to get your desires met, is not a good way of going about things. Re-align yourself this fortnight and look to the higher side of your nature and make amends where necessary. You are generally a good team member and understand the need for fairness.

CANCER: The moon cycle is in Pisces which highlights on the Full Moon in Virgo. A good time for you to introduce a new exercise or diet program. Follow your instincts here, for they are finely tuned. Others will want to coach you and offer advice and yet you are feeling the strong currents of your own intuition at this time. Follow them with confidence and allow others their opinions. Although you may be feeling a little internally stretched and challenged, there is nothing in your life, that is too big or too grand for you to handle. Allow yourself the down days, as graciously as you do, the up.

CAPRICORN: Using your skills, talents and learned abilities makes you an indispensable member of your community. Remember however, to act with integrity as any tendency for one-upmanship will come back for retribution at a later date. It is your responsibility to weigh everything out for yourself before taking action. With this long transit of Pluto in your sign, you will be asked to let much of your old way of thinking and acting go and to make amends for all the wrong doings or mistakes you’ve made in the past. This can be a quick and relatively painless process if you are willing to let down your armor and protective mechanisms.

LEO: The Sun’s movement into fellow fire sign Aries, at the end of the fortnight marks a time of renewed vigor and excitement. Things get a little dreary when it is the same daily humdrum and routine. Aries then, throws in the unexpected factor and keeps you on your toes and guessing where the next impetus to move will come from. Many of you will change jobs and locations at this time. No need to get yourself into a flap about this, as all will be revealed at a later date. Take everything in your stride with a good dose of understanding and humor. Practical jokes are apt to be played on you.

AQUARIUS: Big fortnight for you, as your planetary ruler breaks through into Aries and brings with it fire and passion. Giant leaps forward are possible now as you will soon see. The time for deep introspection is over and as Neptune exits your sign also this year you will feel like a new, or at least re-invented person. In hindsight you will get to see what these past 8 years have really been about, not that you will get too much time for integration. This needs to happen in an accelerated way and with that in mind, move forward with those projects which have been stashed quietly in the wings, over the past months.

VIRGO: With your precise mind and your attention to detail pronounced you will be placed strategically to be of assistance this fortnight. You feel the acknowledgment for your services and this gives you the momentum to keep moving forward. When you are busy there is less time to procrastinate and to criticize your actions. Your life is all about service, although service to the self is also a big part of this. Take the time you need to rejuvenate and to restore your spent energies. A fine balancing act, but once produced brings even bigger results. A little self-appreciation goes a long way.

PISCES: As the Planets exit your sign now, particularly Uranus, who has been there since 2003, a dramatic shift takes place in your life. Your new year was implemented with this last Birthday and it is time to set the wheels in motion. Neptune your ruler enters your sign soon and this will usher in amazing energy for you to redistribute wherever it may be needed. Be very careful to define your boundaries, as the urge to merge will be highlighted. Being of service, means that you always, always put you first. Be very mindful of tending then to your own energetic needs and requirements or you face despondency. +62 8777 000 8989 C/Ho/G-20 Oct. 10

Philippa Goldie: Writer of Offering Book

Philippa Goldie was born and bred in Buckinghamshire, England. She studied to A level at school and then attended Sheffield University to take up Business and Finance in Tourism. After finishing her studies, she left the UK at 21 and spent three years traveling, stopping and working in places in order to save up and move on. Philippa has worked as a mail carrier in UK, a chef in Australia’s northernmost pub on Thursday Island, and she has cleaned squid in Greece and has run a bar in Turkey. In 1991, she joined A & K, a worldwide tour operator. She speaks three languages fluently and is conversant in three more. This year Philippa published My Offering, a 100-page book of photos on Bali’s daily offerings. What are your hobbies? I have always loved photography and swimming and spend a fair amount of time on both each week. I swim 15-24 km a week depending on how pressing my other commitments are. I also enjoy yoga and working on ideas for my jewelry line. What person has had a big influence on you? Everyone you meet and everything you see, watch or read has an impact in some way, either good or bad. My school headmaster was perhaps a good example of how not to influence young people. His career advice to me when I left school was to join the navy as the uniform would suit me. Thank God I didn’t listen to him. Did you do much worldwide travel? In my sales position at a UK travel tour operator, I was on the road most of the time training travel agents. I also would accompany them to our destinations all over the world, so that they would be able to sell the product. I traveled to really exciting places, fantastic or quirky hotels doing fun things with generally great people. It was a dream job. At the end of each trip, I’d send the travel agents home and go off backpacking to see the country the way I wanted to see it. When I got married, my husband and I traveled a lot before the children came – my job really helped make this easy. Once our son was born in 1999, I stopped working in the field due to the amount of necessary travel. But now that the kids are growing up we can start again, this time

as a family of four. I feel at ease in Asia and I love the depth and rawness of Africa.

We provide a big quality selection of Cushion, Bedding, Umbrellas, Table Mat, Curtain, Bolster, Blind, Scarf. Suitable for any kind of purpose from interior decoration and room decoration, specialty gift and other purpose with the most competitive prices for wholesale and retail.

When was your first visit to Bali? In 1989 with my best mate Kate. We were backpacking around Java and passed through Bali on our way to Australia. We wanted to make the New Year’s festivities in Sydney to celebrate the beginning of the new decade. Why did you publish a book on Balinese offerings? I find Balinese offerings beautiful and have been fascinated by them ever since my first trip to Bali. Generally speaking, people outside of Indonesia know nothing about this incredible art form and it was my intention to create some awareness of them in the world. Many people who visit the island today completely miss the reason the original tourists back in the 1920s & ‘30s found the island so captivating. Today many of us are so busy that we forget to appreciate what is around us. I like to think that if people open my book daily they will remember to slow down and appreciate not only the beauty of canang but also the dedication with which the offerings are made.

Where did you learn how to take pictures? A teacher at school suggested I study photography. She guided me through a few exams and was really supportive. I have been taking pictures ever since and I used to even sell photos from my work trips to travel magazines. How did you choose the sayings that accompany the photographs? I spent weeks and weeks trawling through websites looking for quotes that I believed in. Did you have the book produced in Bali? Bayugraphic did the layout. Bayu is wonderful, a whizz on the computer and extremely patient. The printing was done in Jakarta. I sat and watched a lot of the production, had a great team working on it for me, and took lots of photos.

C/Ho/G-3 Nov. 10

What will you do with the profits from My Offering? Bali has provided me with an interesting life, so one of the reasons I produced My Offering was to give back to those who have helped Bali and to help those who need help in Bali. I’m waiting for the first six months sales so that an amount builds up. I will donate the profits to Ibu Robin in Ubud because her work with Bumi Sehat is so crucial. Also to John Fawcett for providing eye cataract surgery which is also hugely important. David Booth of East Bali Poverty Project is also on my list. He is a hugely dedicated man and has done fantastic things in East Bali, an area off the tourist map and so often forgotten. I am keen to hear from people if they know of a charity – large or small - which really needs help. Where may readers buy the book? My Offering is available for Rp250,000 in Periplus stores throughout Bali, Jakarta, Yogyakarta and Surabaya. Ganesha in Ubud and @Biku in Seminyak also carry it, as well as the hotel gift shops at The Oberoi and The Conrad.

Swimming pool always green?

“Now You See It, Now You Don’t” Last week I had the pleasure of inspecting a large house in a rather salubrious part of Bali. It is a large residence consisting of a collection of single and 2 storey buildings set in two landscaped compounds. It was clear at an early stage that this was a very well built house, none of the various buildings in the complex had cracks in the walls (not even the usual settlement cracking we have come to expect) even the many metres of boundary wall had only one or two minor cracks in them. Roofs were well constructed of wood shingle with glass wool and aluminium foil insulation underneath to keep the buildings cool and there were no signs of termites. Everything worked. Doors were straight and not warped from poor seasoning of the wood. Electrical systems were correctly installed and were properly earthed (a rare thing in Bali). The contractor had even used the correct colours throughout for the cabling; red, yellow and black for the 3 phases, blue for the neutral and yellow/green striped for the earthing wires. Everything had been thought about even down to the small details such as a stainless steel pump room cover, a roof over the externally mounted gas water heater, a sand filter on the bore pump with automatic backwash and a ventilation fan in the pump room. I am not sure if the toilet seats were heated but I wouldn’t be at all surprised. It was a pleasure to inspect such a well built house. It turned out that the owner, an Indonesian business man, had carefully selected and engaged a construction company from Jakarta to carry out the work. Jakarta construction companies are building a number of buildings in Bali at the moment and a recently completed building, a Toyota Agency on the Bypass, has been another example of good building practice. From start to finish construction of what is a large commercial building took only around 6 months but the quality was evident throughout from the filling of the site, the sinking of pile foundations right through to final completion. It was also good to see the respect for our Balinese hosts, the building has a Balinese roofline and a beautiful carved freeze across the front and before it opened all the local ceremonial procedures were duly followed. The noticeable thing about this building was the professionalism with which the whole project was executed. Properly planned and project managed construction showed no signs of the usual do a bit here, do a bit there, oh dear we forgot that, I’ll tell you what we’ll just take that bit down again and put this bit in that we forgot and oh never mind no one will notice that there are no foundations. In stark contrast recently I was looking at some half built villas that were a demonstration of poor and, I am sorry to say, dangerous building. Close to the sea these villas will fetch US$300,000 each and some poor unsuspecting person will buy them without knowing how little structure is hidden within those painted walls. Heavy concrete edge roofs are supported by some very weak red brickwork strengthened by a very sparse sprinkling of what are known as “practice” columns. I am always a bit wary when I hear the word “practice”. Have you noticed that our learned friends in the wealthcare and legal professions are always practicing? One has to wonder why they are never quite good enough to perform. “Practice” columns are concrete columns that are cast into brick or concrete walls. The builder leaves a vertical gap in the brickwork, installs some very light steel rods and then casts a concrete column into the wall as though it were an afterthought (and well it could be). The concrete is usually mixed by hand in small batches (oh dear) leaving lots of air pockets (oh dear) and lines of weakness where the different batches of cement meet (oh deary, deary dear). All in all practice columns provide some additional strength to a brick wall but not a lot, perhaps it will have as much effect as public opinion has in stopping Berlusconi chasing attractive young women. Practice columns are certainly not strong enough to support concrete roof structures and one has to wonder how these buildings manage to stay up. Perhaps their structures may be classed as ‘acts of God’. Just keep praying if you buy one. Recently we have seen a devastating earthquake in Christchurch New Zealand. This should be seen as a wake up call for Bali. At a magnitude of 6.3 this was not a large earthquake by Indonesian standards. As recently as February 8th we had a 5.3 earthquake only 200km South of Bali. The New Zealand earthquake was devastating because it was very shallow - only 5km deep. Serious building failures have resulted in hundreds of people killed, as in all earthquakes it is the collapsing of buildings that kills people, but the important thing to remember is that in New Zealand there are strictly enforced building regulations. All modern structures would have been properly designed and constructed with steel reinforcement and concrete mixes as specified. All too often this is not the case in Indonesia and I have seen many buildings under construction here that I am sure will not survive a powerful earthquake when (not if) it comes. The buildings of most concern are detached villas which often do not have sufficient reinforced columns and beams to support the concrete roofstructures that have been placed on top.

A layer of cement, a coat of paint, some wood veneer, this is only the finishing. In any building it is what you don’t see that really makes the difference. A lot of cost is invested under the ground in the foundations before you ever start putting the building itself up. The main strength of the building is in the structural beams and columns hidden in the walls, the plumbing is hidden under the ground and the electrical systems are all out of sight.

There are other things that you don’t necessarily see. The design drawings specifying the foundations, structure, plumbing and electrical circuits, the bill of quantities that states what will be used. Not least are the accounting practices and project plan the builder uses. If mistakes are made in costing the project the builder will have to take short cuts to save money. He will save on the hidden aspects and not on the finishing that you see. An example of cutting corners I once came across was of a high profile luxurious complex in which the electrical contractor had saved money by installing 2 core cable instead of 3 core cable to all the power circuits. To provide earthing he connected the neutral wire to the earth in the plug sockets. For saving a very small amount of money someone nearly died and an expensive complex had to rewire all its circuits (not easy when a building has been completed).

Good builders accurately cost the jobs they take on and they plan how they will carry out the project task by task. Working within predefined parameters with allowances for unforeseen circumstances means that the project can proceed in a logical, fully determined manner which makes a huge difference in how the final result is achieved. Nothing is forgotten, nothing is shortcut, there are no horrible surprises and stress levels are low. Happy builders produce good work and happy clients. For many, many people building in Bali becomes a nightmare, but it doesn’t need to be. So what can we do to try and make sure a building project goes well?

• 30 Colours Available • 10 Years Structure Warranty • Supply Hotels & Private Villas

1. Select a good team. You will need a good lawyer (not easy to find), a good architect (check their past work and their credentials), a good structural engineer (not the architect unless he can prove he has Indonesian structural qualifications), a project manager, an inspector (find an independent person who you know will look after your interests), and finally a good builder (check their work and interview former clients). C/BM/G-3 Nov. 10

2. Keep your relationship with these people professional and avoid using ‘friends’. Check everything every step of the way. Do not assume that a foreigner will do a better job than a local person, many of the more serious cases of incompetence or outright scams I have come across over the years have been perpetrated by foreigners. Also remember that to have legal credibility that might be needed at a later stage in a court of law the experts should be Indonesian, foreigner’s qualifications are not recognised in Indonesia and you should always be ready just in case there is a court case down the track. 3. Make sure the project is fully documented before you start with full sets of drawings and a bill of quantities. It may be a good idea to have an expert look over the documents as a second opinion. If an architect’s name is on the drawings check that he did in fact design it. Ask the builder for an accurate bill of quantities (get this checked by an independent Quantity Surveyor) and a project plan that breaks the job into tasks and sets timelines. If he backs away from this (many will) then you need to start doubting his ability to complete the project. 4. Plan the flow of money to make sure you always have leverage to make sure the work is done correctly. In many cases the builder will walk away from the project at three quarters completion because he has received most of his money and he can maximise his profit or avoid the cost of rectifications in the finishing work. 5. Realise that it is false economy to negotiate a very low price. Yes you need to avoid being overcharged but if the builder cannot make a sensible profit make no mistake you will be the loser. It is best to determine the ‘right’ price (this is why you should use an independent Quantity Surveyor) and stick to it. 6. Make sure that full supervision and independent inspection is carried out through all phases of the construction. The structure needs to be inspected by a structural engineer - not an architect or a Master Builder, these people are not qualified to do the complex structural calculations involved-it should be an engineer. By taking these steps you will not only be helping yourself, you will be playing your part in establishing higher standards and helping us all to build a stronger more professional real estate sector in Bali.

Pumpkin Apple Curry Soup Serves 6 Ingredients: - 1/2 pumpkin, skinned and seeded, chopped - 2 green apples, skinned and seeded, chopped - 7 cups water - 2 Tbl. butter - 1 onion, chopped - 3 cloves of garlic, - 2 Tbl. chives, chopped - 2 carrots, sliced - 2 tsp. curry powder - 2 Tbl. ground cumin - 1/2 cup raisins - 2 cups soup stock - salt to taste

Blend in a food processor or blender to puree. Check the salt and and blend again. Return to the pot. You can cool it at this point to freeze or keep for the next day, if you don’t plan to eat it right away. When you are ready to eat, stir 1 cup of the yogurt until smooth and then add to the soup, heating gently, being careful not to boil or it will ruin the yogurt. Serve with another dollop of yogurt on top.

Put the chopped pumpkin, apples, and water into a large pot and bring to a boil. Cover and lower the heat. While this is cooking heat the butter in a frying pan and when hot add the onion and garlic, stir frying for 5 minutes. Now

Soup’s On!

- 1 1/4 cup yogurt Directions:


add the chives and carrots and saute another 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the curry powder, cumin and raisins and cook another 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add this mixture to the pumpkin and apple pot along with the soup stock and salt. Cover the pot, lower the flame, and cook for one hour or until the pumpkin is soft.


This is a mainstay at our house. It freezes well too. The sour yogurt compliments the sweet of the carrots and raisins. If you don’t have soup stock, use water, although stock gives it an added dimension of flavor.

23 Twenty Money Saving Tips For People Living in Bali: Part I 1) First, be genuinely nice to people. Try to step into their shoes, joke and laugh with them. When Indonesians sense Western supremacy you will pay the highest price. If they like you they will want to help you (a worldwide phenomenon) by giving you a fair or even low price. 2) When shopping at chains like Hardy’s, Carrefour, Jaya Kerti, Lotte Mart, Indomart, Tiara Dewata and Tiara Grosir, sign up for a membership card to get a discount. Some give points for purchases, which you can redeem immediately or at the end of the year. Others give a cupon belanja (voucher) at time of purchases over Rp100,000. Each store chain has a different policy. Some charge a yearly fee to become a member (Tiara Grosir Rp10,000, Jaya Kerti Rp5000) but at Hardy’s and Lotte membership is free.

people even make a profitable little business out of buying dollars on a weekend and selling them a few days later. New, crisp, clean, unfolded, unstapled $100 notes fetch the highest rate. The same applies to other foreign currencies.

has to contribute). Similar to putting money away for deposit, each member wins an equal amount over the course of a complete cycle. Because trust is important, each new member has to be known by the group before being accepted to join.

10) Not all petrol stations charge the same for the identical quantity of fuel. Some pom bensin are cheaper than others. Gas jockeys have a way of letting the air enter the hose and thus inflate the total price. The best way to find out is to buy a full tank of gas at two different gas stations and then compare prices. As a rule, gas stations on major roads are more honest than on the back roads because they are under greater scrutiny.

18) Don’t wait for fliers from Carrefour, Hypermart and Lotte in the mail to get the jump on sales items in all categories (baby & kids, beauty & health, food, electronics, special promotions, etc.) before they are sold out. Just go to those superstores’ official websites and the monthly sales fliers are posted online.

11) You can save more money if you take out a deposito berjangka (time deposit certificate) rather than if you were to just leave your money in your savings account 3) If you ever get into any legal trouble - serious car (rekening tabungan) at the bank. The interest rate on accident, drug bust, assaulting someone, etc. – it’s best these time certificates is higher. to deal directly with the police, the prosecutors and the judges. Negotiating your way out of the problem is better 12) If you’re making a purchase from the major hardware than trying to fight the case. Find a competent local shops (Ace, Mitra 10, or local building supply stores person to conduct the negotiations rather than hire a (toko bangunan), etc.), go to all and compare prices. A lawyer who will make the ordeal last longer and end up friend was looking for glass film to put on his windows. costing you substantially more. Most places sold it for Rp300,000/meter. Mitra 10 had it for Rp80,000/meter. 4) The cheapest clothes can be bought in a pasar kota (city market) but you have to bargain. If you don’t want 13) Particularly for big ticket items, only bargain when to bargain, go to Robinson (Jl. Sudirman, tel. 0361-234- the owner or manager is in a shop because sales clerks 894), which sells good quality clothing, but at pasar kota are not authorized (tidak berani) to give discounts. prices. Libi Plaza (Jl. Teuku Umar) also sells affordable, high quality and stylish clothing. More up-market is 14) Buy a netbook instead of a laptop. They cost less, Ramayana Mal Bali (Jl. Diponegoro, tel. 0361-246-306). consume low power, and are becoming more powerful and sophisticated with new Intel chips, 1GB of RAM, a 5) Use energy saving long-lasting CFL light bulbs which 160 GB or larger hard drives, and Windows 7 operating cost anywhere from Rp21,000 to Rp32,000 depending systems. High end models even have 11.6 inch displays upon the wattage and brand. Best brand is Philips. Even with high screen resolutions and new graphics hardware. higher tech and more energy saving is the new LED 1 Netbooks are now around Rp3 million (there are too Watt bulbs but they cost Rp79,000 apiece at Ace. (It’s many variations for laptops to give prices). Low-end thought that because of demand the price will come netbooks can be bought at the RIMO in Denpasar for down by the end of the year.) as low as Rp2 million. 6) Always buy a used car or motorcycle straight from the owner and not through a dealer or showroom. If you want a car fast, read the Indonesian-language Bali Post in the “Mobil Dijual” of the advertising section (iklan) to get the Indonesian price. Ask for help from a native Indonesian friend or employee. Also check out the “Cars, Motorcycles, Watercraft” section of the Bali Advertiser. 7) If you want to buy a cow, goat, rabbits, puppies, etc. at Pasar Bringkit in Mengwi and at the Bebandem cattle market in Karangasem, it’s best to wait until school fees are due in June or July when the Balinese need to raise money quickly. If you want to sell your cow or goat it’s best to wait until the Islamic Idul Ad’ha, the Islamic day of Sacrifice, when Muslims are required to make animal sacrifices.

15) If you hire staff from different villages, and not just from one village or extended family, they will not all take time off for an odalan, funeral, temple ceremony or clan ritual at the same time, leaving you shorthanded and perhaps your remaining (perhaps non-Balinese staff) overworked. 16) For fruits, vegetables, fruits, meats and fish, it’s cheaper to buy in Denpasar’s giant 3-floor central Pasar Badung (off Jl. Gajah Mada) than in supermarkets. Open 7 days a week; free entry. Go between 6 am and 10 am for the freshest produce. At the three-floor wholesale art market on the other side of the river from Pasar Badung, crafts and souvenirs are less expensive than even at Sukawati market.

19) If you have an expensive foreign car, it’s not always necessary to have repairs and servicing done at the main dealership as there are many good bengkel who will do the job at a fraction of the cost. For spare parts that are not essential for safety, such as lamps, side mirrors, etc., there are ‘copies’ available. Simple services like an oil-change or the replacement of light bulbs are much more reasonably dealt with at one of the many variasi mobil. Example: you don’t have to take your BMW to the main dealer, where you’ll most likely spend a lot more. Even if you’ve accumulated a number of scratches, dents and rust spots, you can have complete repair and respraying done, all the bodywork, including replacement of the headlining (the inside of the roof) for a total of under Rp 6 million at a variasi. 20) When using a taxi, make sure that you agree before setting off that the charge will be pakai argo (by the meter). If a taxi driver insists on an expensive fixed price, just wait for the next one. 21) If having any work done on your house, agree to a price before the work commences. Although it is normal for a builder to ask for the cost of materials in advance, do NOT pay the full price until you are completely satisfied with the job. 22) If you’re doing a lot of mailing, be aware that not all branch post offices and postal agents charge the correct postal rates. Only the GPO (Kantor Pos Pusat) on Jl. Raya Puputan in Renon always charges the correct rates. The best way to request that the correct postal charge be applied is to get a copy (you have to pay for the copies yourself) at the GPO and take it to your small local P.O. 23) The price you pay for any goods or services depend upon your nationality, your age and your bargaining skills. One price is offered to tourists, another to Indonesian speaking tourists, another to native Indonesian speakers, a third to Balinese and a fourth to Balinese in the seller’s village or family. To save money – even in restaurants and in government offices – learn Indonesian. Better yet, learn Balinese or take a Balinese friend or your driver along when you go shopping. Bule (Westerners) should visit the shop first, look around, tell their Indonesian friend which item(s) they want, then stay out of sight or wait in the car.

17) If you want to have a lot of money fall into your lap quickly (and make some good friends into the bargain), enter an Indonesian arisan (tontine). This private club enables members to purchase something beyond their Please share your moneysaving tips! Send to: dariskm@ affordability - such as jewelry, a new refrigerator or roof - without involving bank loans or credit. A group of women take turns gathering at each other’s households for a potluck once a month. Each participant puts into the pool a fixed amount, for example 10 women put Rp500,000 each. At each meeting a name is drawn and 9) Change your dollars at moneychangers on Wednesday that winner takes home all the cash (R5 million in the Copyright © 2011 Bali Advertiser or Thursdays when the rate is higher and not at the above example). At the next meeting the previous winner You can read all past articles of beginning of the week when the rate is lower. Some is not allowed to take part in the lottery (though she still BA Feature Article at

8) For electronics, the shops (like Bumi Mas) in Tabanan are far less expensive than their counterparts in Denpasar. (Tabanan is a closer trans-shipment point than Denpasar.) For new Olympic (composition) furniture, go to Seroja in front of Hardy’s on Jl. Bypass in Tabanan. For wooden furniture, go to Seruni on Jl. Gaja Mada on the same side as the BCA Bank in Tabanan City.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

A Japanese Touch! Karma Lounge is the latest dining option at Jimbaran’s Karma Resort. Since the popular di Mare was moved to Karma Kandara at Ungasan a few years ago, the Jimbaran restaurant has been trying to find its own niche. The Steak House concept was followed by a short flirtation with Seafood then reverted back to the steak formula which created enough of a following that a steak section remains on the menu today with different cuts of Wagyu and Australian Angus. Karma Lounge now offers the Izakaya style of dining. Izakaya started in Japan as upmarket bar snacks in the smarter sake lounges, more substantial than was usually available in a normal bar. The concept has a number of different dishes shared amongst friends. To convert this to a full restaurant formula Karma Lounge offers these dishes in two different size portions, thus catering for any number at the table. The Izakaya selection offers a wide range of flavours, dishes of Japanese origin whilst others are more International [some even with traces of the chef’s Caribbean origin], but the concept remains the same; order a variety of plates and enjoy that wide variety of tastes. Grilled Lemongrass Pork Loin with sweet banana in cilantro and red wine, Sake Marinated Chicken, tomato risotto, ginger and lime juice, Braised Veal Shank [Osso Bucco style], pumpkin risotto, black kale, cippolini onions and salsa verde, and a wonderful Harissa-spiced Lamb Rump [cooked a perfect pink] with aubergine caviar, grilled chorizo and a sweet potato tortilla. Dishes with a Japanese touch include Char Siu Braised Pork Belly, scallion, shitake and soba noodles, Miso Marinated Black Japanese Cod, fennel and citrus, a Whole Local Lobster Tempura with wasabi yogurt and a lemon confit. Very different is the Japanese Crispy Soft Shell Crab with coriander, chilli, lime leaf with ginger ponzu sauce. More seafood options include Pan-fried Sea Bass with confit of fennel and a black olive tapenade, Roasted Sea Bass with sticky pork belly and a butternut squash puree, Ceviche of Mahi Mahi, cucumber, lemon, tomato and chilli, and a Basket of Spicy Steamed Salmon, Snapper and Shrimp, with soy and a sambal sauce. The Braised Local Squid with roasted red onions, tomato and a black olive tapenade is amazingly tender. And finally a touch of the Caribbean with a Slow Roasted

Duck Leg, souse cloves [a pickling method from the West Indies], lemon, green chilli and ear mushrooms. Venison has always been my favourite meat and here they have a Roasted Venison with mascarpone potato puree, red cabbage [another favourite], crispy salsify [sometimes called oyster plant] and an unusual bitter chocolate sauce. A dish to return for! Sizzling meat plates include a perfect Japanese Spiced Lamb Loin with coconut and a flageolet bean cassoulet, a Five Spice and Honey Duck Breast with crispy bok choi, confit duck dumplings and New Zealand Lamb Chops with crushed peas, a potato fondant and rosemary. As well as the previously mentioned steak options of Wagyu and Australian Angus, which are available in different portion sizes. With such a variety of tastes the Izakaya method makes sense, order a few dishes at a time, not the complete order, and taste and sip to fully enjoy the experience. Then it is dessert time, and the variety and range of taste continues. Pumpkin Pot de Crème, an Upside Down Vanilla and Lemon Cheese Cake, and a Sticky Toffee Pudding with Crème Fraîche all tempt the senses, and then there is the Chef’s signature dish, a Rosemary, Chocolate & Olive Oil Cake that should not be missed!

Wellness cuisine options, inspired by the Karma Spa, are also available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, for the healthy minded. Power Breakfasts and many other things that are good for you. Karma lounge is a hidden oasis, a wonderful spot to relax by the pool, in the main restaurant area or lounge, by day, and a little more elegant by night.

Update Eight Degrees South is beachside at The Bali Conrad Resort in Tandjung Benoa. It specializes in seafood and light meals for lunch where you can even create your own salad by choosing from a long list; 3 different leaves, 3 vegetables, 3 condiments, a dressing and a side dish. A range of seafood is available from the grill. However at night the style changes and finer dining is the norm. Their signature dish is an amazing entrée, Scallop Feuille de Brick [pictured]. The scallop is sprinkled with Noirmoutier fleur de sel [fine grain sea salt] and Espelette chilli [peppers from the Basque area of France] then wrapped in this unique very fine ‘brick pastry’, really a cross between a filo pastry and a crepe, and deep-fried. Other main attractions on the dinner menu are Wagyu and Lobster. The Wagyu can be had as a Salad [pink, warm rib eye tossed in a salad with white balsamic, sambal ulek, coconut milk and fresh tamarind, or as a Tenderloin Steak, with Jaborandi peppers, seared foie gras, morels flambéed with vodka and truffled pecorino misto sauce. Lobster can be Carbonara [sautéed in butter with mushroom, bacon and cream], Thermidor [mushrooms, chives, pimento and cheese gratin], Char-grilled [with lemon butter and garlic] or Steamed as a part of a Seafood Platter with mussels, prawns and clams.

Sarong was the site of a recent invasion from Mainland China. An amazing lady, ‘Chairman’ Wang, from Beijing’s famous Black Sesame Kitchen brought her centuries-old recipes and wowed the audience. I have been eating ‘Chinese’ food for almost 50 years but had never tasted anything quite like this. Dim Sum dumplings [of the Cantonese variety] usually have muted taste, subsequently enhanced by the dipping sauce. Chairman Wang’s dumplings have a wide variety of tastes but all encased inside the dumpling, waiting to explode in your mouth! Beef and Bamboo Shoot dumplings with chilli hotbeans and black vinegar, Steamed Wheat dumpling with shrimp, pork and chilli vinegar and Pan-fried Lamb & Pumpkin dumpling [the style that inspired the Japanese Gyoza and the American Potsticker, but this one a world of difference] with black vinegar, leek and chilli oil. The mains were just as sensational; Red Braised Barramundi with soy, shiitake mushroom, bamboo and leek, Kung Pao Chicken with cashews, chilli and Szechuan pepper and a wow of a dish, a Claypot of Braised Lamb Rib. A selection from these dishes will be incorporated into future Sarong menus.

Bistro Batu Kali is the latest in place on Eat Street. New places are once again opening on Jln. Laksmana, Kerobokan, perhaps the conversion to boutiques and real estate has finished? This one is a sure winner, at this stage only open for dinner from 5.00 p.m., daily. When a chef/ manager has previously successfully opened two Bali restaurants [Rumours and Boardwalk] for different owners, and then they do it for themselves, it is very likely to work. The secret is simple, interesting but simple food with high quality but very budget priced! Grilled Baby Chicken, Beef Tenderloin stuffed with peppers, onions and feta, Braised Lamb Shank, Chicken Breast stuffed with mushrooms and ricotta. Wonderful Beef and Vegetable Pies, served in a bowl encrusted with pastry and that English classic, Beef Wellington [fillet steak topped with pate and wrapped in puff pastry before being baked in the oven]. Whilst the standard menu prices are amazingly low, further great value is available from the daily blackboard 3 course special menus. The restaurant is open to the street, separated from it by a boardwalk terrace, from where you can watch the world go by! Deus Café is found in Canggu on the road that links the one to Tugu Hotel with Echo Beach. On an island of strange and unusual establishments Deus Café is just about the most unusual of all. The main building houses an incredible collection of fully restored antique motor bikes, all of which are for sale. Some of the bikes have been custom made and for those wanting pedal power there are handcrafted bicycles. Outside is a covered terrace, on three sides, which is the restaurant dining area, your choice of large teak tables, lounge seating or a bar area set for dining. The population explosion in this area in recent years has been amazing with new villas being built almost by the day. Many new restaurants, cafes and warungs have been springing up but this one is all class! Its Australian heritage has, not surprisingly, produced a menu with many Thai dishes [Australia’s cuisine of choice for the 21st Century]. Chicken can be in Martabak form or the luscious Masaman Curry [from Thailand’s Muslim south]. Minced Chicken is served Krapow, stir-fried with Thai Holy Basil [and onions, garlic, chilli and ginger]. Chicken is also on the menu in many other styles including Sri Lankan and Twice Cooked, the legs in ground turmeric then steamed. Open from 8.00 every morning Deus Café offers a wide range of breakfasts, big enough for the hungry surfer who wants something better than warung food; Banana & Almond Pancakes, Black Rice Pudding, Poached Eggs and Smoked Salmon, Breakfast Burritos and good old Bacon & Eggs with hash browns.

Imperial Xi-Fu has taken over the site of former Haaven Coffee at the Fave Hotel on Jln. Teuku Umar, Denpasar. It is this Jakarta chain’s first Bali restaurant, perhaps the first of many? Inside it is a typical Chinese restaurant, with tables of all sizes, at the open kitchen end a rack of hanging birds, those traditional Cantonese Roasted Ducks, dark reddish-brown in colour from the honey basting before the roasting. Whilst Roast Duck is the specialty of the house Imperial Xi-Fu, in traditional Chinese restaurant style, offers a monster menu, many familiar dishes and a few very unusual for Bali. Jelly Fish in a chilli sauce, Century Egg in sour ginger are examples. Minced Duck is served in a lettuce leaf similar to the popular Sang Choy Bow. Seafood takes up most of the menu. Lobster can be had Steamed in Garlic, Baked in Cheese, with Salted Egg or Japanese style Sashimi. For Crab you can choose male or female [with eggs]. Prawns, Clams and many species of fish are kept live in tanks. Abalone, Sea Cucumber and Sharks’ Fin are also all available in many forms. The full range of meat dishes are listed as well as that very traditional dish from Beijing, Peking Duck. Gerry Williams For more information see our website: NC/R/G-9 March 11

My short study at Phoenix has given me a strong foundation in the English Language which has helped me during my main course of study accounting in here at TAFE College. The teachers and facilities here are excellent and I have also been given the opportunity to meet people from all over the world which is really good to improve my English. Studying in Perth, Western Australia has taught me to be independent and confident. I chose to study in Perth because it is very close to Bali, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only 3 ½ hours flight. Perth offers world class education and affordable tuition fees. With the help of the team at education ONEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head office in Perth, now I have a part-time job which is yet another great way to practice my English.

Some heels are slender, while others are a   chunky wooden stack, however both have a place in the closet!   And, it’s not only the height of the e   shoes, but it’s the sharp detail, with a   load of punched leather, studs, straps,   buckles & bows!   The quality of leather is superb, somee plaited, cracked, suede, faux snake, &   everyone of course loves a bit of leopard! d!     And what I love is the bold color palette that Niluh has on offer, with  more color on the way, do remember, r, it’s going to be a colorful summer   season.

09 March - 23 March, 2011

C/G/I-19 May 10

by Dr. Rob Spirits and Lines Paintings by Made Kaek and Edy Able At Ganesha Gallery, Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran Bay Tel: 701010

In this dual exhibition artists Made Kaek and Edy Able display their fascination for the world of shadows, resorting to palettes limited largely to inky blacks, milky whites, and luminous gold. Made Kaek is a member of the Sanggar Dewata, one of Bali’s most prestigious artists groups, and he is well-known in the art scene. Whereas, Edy Able is a self-taught artist from Mojokerto, East Java, who only began exhibiting for the first time in 2008, at the age of 38. Kaek’s world is populated with strange beasts and leering humanoids. All of his paintings are simply entitled ‘Roh’ or ‘Spirit’, and are only differentiated by a designated number. Some, like ‘Roh 4’, are reminiscent of Picasso’s ‘Guernica’, stripping his canvas of color Roh 4 and his use of abstracted forms and mythic symbolism. Others are discombobulated and at times strangely humorous. They leer and sneer and stare at each other on canvases occasionally punctuated with splashes of blue. By comparison, the canvases of Edy Able are more refined and cerebral. The lines are delicate, and a close examination reveals endless detail. In ‘Tanda Berangkat’ he combines not only paper and canvas but also a wood carving, thus uniting sculpture and painting. Unlike most of his work, the central field of this work is a large oval somewhat like a womb, or, possibly, a manifestation of an ancient goddess.

Tanda Berangkat

In other works, such as ‘Roh 21’ and ‘Mata Tangan’, the paintings of both artists are notable for their graphic appeal, resulting from their use of line and black and white. Color here just functions as splashes to momentarily grab attention. In spite of the colors, the eye returns to the rhythm and flow of the whole pieces, which vibrate and hum with Roh 21 mystery. When the creative processes of these two artists are flowing naturally, they unite our perception of the Soul, Mind, and Heart. Made Kaek and Edy Able may express themselves through the use of any available media, but, their most outstanding feature is to use lines and dots to harmonize and create shapes and Mata Tangan mythical forms.

Transcendence Japanese Batik in Bali by Kiranada Sterling Benjamin At Agung Rai Museum of Art, Pengosekan, Ubud Tel: 975742

stimulating opportunity to witness the amazing breath of ideals and discoveries, efforts and accomplishments, that have contributed to the flowering of a golden age in batik.

The work of Kiranada Sterling Benjamin is currently on show at the Agung Rai Museum, in Ubud, and it contains more than sixteen silk hangings and mounted scroll paintings, which have been created using the unique process of rozome, or, Japanese style batik. Rozome (pronounced row-zoh-may) is an ancient wax-resist technique of applying molten wax to a fabric to block out areas that would resist dyes. Rozome has a documented history that dates back 2500 years. In 1875, wax-resist cloths from the seventh century BC were discovered in burial mounds on the north coast of the Black Sea. Wax-resist dyeing was first seen in Japan in the seventh century. The technique migrated across Asia through China to Japan, where the process became known as, rozome. About the same time, the technique moved southward to India and Indonesia where it become known as, batik.

Formerly Betsy Sterling Benjamin, Dh. Kiranada was ordained in the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2009. In addition, she also teaches Japanese Surface Design and meditation at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, and continues to come to Bali every winter for inspiration and studio time, staying in Penestanan.

In ancient Japan, rozome was used to design intricate patterns of brilliant colors for kimonos. The cloth for a kimono was created in a kobo, a workshop where up to fifteen artisans were assigned to a specific task by the master kimono designer. Eventually, the kobo creations of several artisans made way to individual artistic expressions, and used a technique developed for two-dimensional art. Working with brushes, rozome artists employ practices in shading, control, and luminosity, which set their work apart from the batik of other countries. Today, many artists have adopted rozome as a method of expressing themselves using textiles, dyes, and wax. Rozome has become a popular procedure for fiber artists of all types. Kiranada Sterling Benjamin is an acknowledged master of rozome techniques, and has held solo exhibitions in Japan, Germany, England, Indonesia, Costa Rica, and the USA. She is also the author of ‘The World of Rozome: Wax Resist Textiles of Japan’, and has worked in Kyoto, Japan, for over eighteen years. Her renowned work ‘Kesa for the Millennium’ was exhibited in Ubud at the Seniwati Showplace in 2001, and included healing cloths for the seven continents. The ‘kesa’ were on site around the world at the time of the millennium, before coming to Bali. Many of the works on exhibit, at the Agung Rai Museum, focus on themes of transcendence, reflection, and healing, and they were all Transcendence created in Bali during the last five years. Batik has been part of Indonesian culture for hundreds of years, and it has played a vital role in defining Indonesia’s history and artistic forms. Although an American, but trained in Asia, Kiranada Sterling Benjamin works in a contemporary style and produces batik art with a western perspective. Viewing Kiranada’s work, such as pieces like ‘Transcendence’, gives us a

Burke & Hare It is the early Nineteenth Century in Edinburgh, Scotland, and the city is renowned for its schools of medical learning. Unfortunately, there is a dearth of good corpses available for anatomical study, and two enterprising men fall into a profitable new business. Loosely based on a true story, director John Landis makes a very funny movie, even if it is a little bit off beat. The movie stars Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis, plus, a wealth of terrific character actors who all excel at this type of eccentric English humor. In addition, the movie features some superb Edinburgh locations, and sumptuous interior sets and costumes. The Ealing Studios are famous for this type of quirky English comedy, and this film is a marvelous example of the Studio’s style. The Fighter This is another movie which is based on a true story, and it follows the career of American boxer ‘Irish’ Micky Ward, and his unlikely road to the world light welter-weight title. Although set in the world of prize fighting, the movie is actually a very good study of the dynamics of a dysfunctional family. If Micky is to have any sort of boxing career, he must escape the clutches of his greedy and conniving mother, and his elder brother, a failed boxer, who acts as Mickey’s trainer. Both mother and elder son are only interested in what they can get out of Micky. The movie is well directed by David O. Russell, and it also contains some very powerful performances from actors Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, and Amy Adams. 127 Hours And, again, another movie based on real events. This one tells the story of mountain climber Aron Ralston, and how he was trapped for 127 hours in an isolated canyon, when a falling boulder pinned him down. This movie is in the new genre of the principal character and major action being restricted to a confined space. Director Danny Boyle comes up with many inventive ways to maintain visual and narrative interest, however, there has been so much publicity about this movie that it is probably not necessary to go into all the gruesome details. There is a tendency, while watching the movie, to drift off while waiting for the gory bits. Nevertheless, if you are not familiar with all the Hollywood hype, the ending of the movie will come as a shock. I Am Love A wealthy Milanese family is holding a dinner party, and a chef, who is a friend of one of the sons of the family, pays an unexpected call to deliver a cake. After briefly meeting him, the mother of the family is captivated by the chef. Then, through a series of luncheons, dinners, and fetes, she is to fall madly in love. They conduct a passionate affair that will change every ones lives. Italian director Luca Guadagnino makes a visually stunning and highly romantic love story. Like much of Italian cinema, the movie is slowly paced, but, it builds to a touching crescendo. English actress Tilda Swinton speaks impeccable Italian throughout the movie, and her acting is simply flawless. The Way Back In most of his films, such as ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ (1975), ‘The Last Wave’ (1977), and ‘The Mosquito Coast’ (1986), director Peter Weir has always investigated a theme of man challenged by his environment. In his latest movie, ‘The Way Back’, a group of men are to be challenged by a series of environments. A handful of prisoners escape from a Russian Gulag, and they must trek from Siberia to India to gain their freedom. Along the way they confront dense forests, arid deserts, and soaring mountains. The movie has some pretty spectacular scenery, but, it is a rather long hike, and after a while, you just sit through it waiting to see who survives the journey. Faster Dwayne Johnson plays a paroled prisoner, who goes on a

rampage killing a lot of people who he thinks betrayed him in the past. Hot on his trail is Billy Bob Thornton, a cop with only a few days to go before retirement, and who also has a major drug problem. Total chaos is to ensue. Actually, ‘Faster’ is an inappropriate name for this film. It is not all that fast. Much time is spent developing character motivation, which slows down the speed considerably.

Blue Valentine To depict the events which led to the collapse of a marriage, this movie flips backwards and forwards in time. Eventually, it becomes hard to figure out what time zones the events shown are really in. Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams give strong performances, in a movie which is a lot of hard work. Fair Game A CIA agent, who suspects that the Bush administration manipulated secret intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq, is discredited and persecuted by the White House. Australian actress Naomi Watts is fair enough, I guess, in this typical ‘Bush Bashing’ movie. Due Date In 1987 director John Hughes made a terrific comedy called ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’, which starred Steve Martin and John Candy. Now, with some slight plot changes, the movie is back as ‘Due Date’, with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. However, it is still the same old movie. The Resident Hilary Swank has won two Oscars. What on earth is she doing in this trash?

Mr. Robet’s Best Buys The Sicilian Girl After the deaths of her father and brother a girl vows revenge on the Mafia. Burke & Hare Two men fall into a new business providing corpses for anatomical study. Love & Other Drugs A salesman falls in love with a woman suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Burlesque A Los Angeles cabaret is facing hard times and it is saved by a new waitress. Kick-Ass A student becomes a Super Hero and fights crime in the alleys of New York. The Fighter A promising boxer must escape the grip of his greedy and conniving family. Let Me In A boy is bullied at school, and a girl shows him how to stand up for himself. 127 Hours A mountain climber is trapped in a canyon, when a boulder pins him down. I Am Love The mother of a wealthy Italian family falls in love with a friend of her son. The King’s Speech A very unorthodox speech therapist cures the stammer of King George VI.

I was sharing a quiet pot of tea with Kathy last Thursday afternoon when all hell broke loose. At exactly three o’clock the sky darkened, the wind rose and rain began to gust into the patio. Between one sentence and the next, our words were torn out of our mouths and the table we were sitting at was awash with water. I shouted for Wayan, who was ironing in the kitchen, but she couldn’t hear me for the hammer of the rain on the roof. I raised my voice a few decibels, wrapped Kathy in a warm shawl and began to race around unplugging all the electronics, inside the house and out (I’d once had a spectacular modem meltdown during such a storm). I grabbed and wiped dry the laptop, its cable, the lamp, the mosquito machine and my camera and carried them out of harm’s way as the storm gusted through the patio.

where it belonged, only to have it blow back in his face. In a break from this futile activity, he reported that the avocado tree in the front yard had been blown over. Now, nascent gardeners from cold climates share a particular affection for the avocado. The small, hard fruits that retailed for several dollars in northern winter supermarkets evoked warm winds and exotic climes. We wrapped them in newspaper to ripen and later suspended the seeds over glasses of water with strategically placed toothpicks. Gratifyingly often they would germinate, and I know people who kept an avocado plant in a pot for years, a triumph of willpower over latitude.

with blossoms for the next crop, had succumbed to the strong wind and weather. But instead of falling across the garden or taking out a wall of the bathroom as it could easily have done, my tree had laid itself down most politely next to the house. The only damage was a single cracked roof tile.

Wayan and I raced around stacking cushions and rolling up carpets I’d optimistically planted an avocado seed from a particularly succulent specimen soon after my house in Ubud was built, and it grew into a sturdy tree of over 50 cm around and 10 metres high. In its seventh year -- just as the books said -- it bloomed with delicate white flowers and produced fruit for the first time. I knew I‘d been taking a chance, planting a fruit tree from seed instead of grafting, but it rewarded my naiveté by giving us the most wonderful avocadoes. For over two months it produced dozens of huge, rich fruits, some of them weighing over 700 grams and as big as my head. I rarely had the opportunity to taste one, however, since the dogs immediately devoured most of the fallen fruit and the others would disappear in a most mysterious manner. One day the tree would be loaded with almost-ripe avocadoes and the next there would be a big pile of them in the kitchen. Wayan would make smoothies for Nyoman, visiting friends would take some home and large bags of them would go back to the family compound. Suddenly I would be out of avocadoes until the next batch fell. But it was gratifying to brag about my avocadoes to snowbound Canadians.

Chiko the parrot loves dancing in the rain and I moved his perch into the weather for a bath. He screeched with delight for a while then abruptly stopped. By this time the thunder and lightning had started, and I quickly brought him in to join us in the wet patio. He was soaked through to the skin, and the ensuing crashing and banging and fireworks rendered him uncharacteristically silent for the duration. As fast as we dropped the bamboo blinds on the north side of the house, the squalls blew them into the patio. Ornaments and vases crashed to the floor. The rain, blown horizontally by a fierce north wind, drove into the patio and soaked the table, chairs, cushions and carpet in moments. And us, of course. Wayan and I raced around stacking cushions and rolling up carpets. The storm had worked itself up to a vortex of electrical activity that seemed to be hovering directly above the roof. Lightning snaked around the garden, immediately followed by roars of thunder so loud that the house shook on its foundations. I like wild weather but this made me sit down abruptly on a bare bench and gather Kalypso into my arms. The old dog was trembling so hard I had to hold her tightly so she wouldn’t shake herself right off my lap. Hamish, the fearless one, rolled his eyes apologetically and hid his head under my long skirt. A leak opened directly over my head and I shifted the three of us a few inches to starboard. Every time the thunder crashed overhead Wayan screamed with might have equally have been excitement or terror. A cataract of water poured out of the roof gutter and into the pond, filling it to the brim and beyond. I feared for the fish. The lights went off, blinked on, then dimmed again. A papaya tree laden with unripe fruit cracked and fell over, scattering green papaya all over the grass. Nyoman had been diligently pushing water off the patio and back into the garden

The avocado has been cultivated in Central and South American for about 8,000 years. The Spanish first described it in 1518 and quickly added it to their diet. The Aztecs used it as a sex stimulant; the doctor to King Charles ll wrote during a visit to the Caribbean, “It is one of the most rare and pleasant fruits of the island. It nourisheth and strengtheneth the body and procures lust exceedingly.” (This seems unlikely, but I am happy to be corrected by more knowledgeable readers.) The Spanish later used oxidized liquid from the avocado seed as ink on their documents, which are still legible today. In 1856 avocado trees were planted in California from Mexican stock and the rest is history.

Once the worst of the storm had passed, we went out to survey the damage. The fallen tree filled the narrow space beside the house. “Kasian,” mourned Wayan when she saw that every branch was thick with bloom. She grew up poor, and hates to see food wasted. I looked at its roots, exposed by the fall. They were small and lateral, not a tap root as I’d expected. This big tree had not been well anchored for a powerful storm. Nyoman told me that avocado wood was good for nothing but burning, so I went to bed that night saddened by the loss of a tree that had given me much pleasure. But the next morning found a trio of concerned Balinese in consultation around the fallen tree. One was Komang, the gifted gardener who worked for my neighbours. Komang had actually attended horticultural school and understood these issues. He opined that it was worth the effort to try and save the avocado tree, and my staff enthusiastically agreed. Within an hour most of the higher branches had been carefully removed and a system of ropes and bamboo props had pulled the heavy trunk up off the ground and buttressed it up. Every day they pulled it a little closer to vertical. Komang comes over every day to take its pulse. The garden has been swept of fallen leaves and branches. Wayan has taken all the green papaya home to her pigs. The fish survived. The only memento of the storm is the severely pruned avocado tree, leaning at a slightly drunken angle but still bravely blooming on its few remaining branches. Perhaps I will get a few avocadoes this year after all.

Avocados are a healthy fruit. They contain no cholesterol, but are a good source of oleic acid and mono and polyunsaturated fats which help to lower cholesterol and protect against breast cancer. They are a good source of potassium, folate, vitamin E and other vitamins. Avocadoes are rich in the essential Omega-3 fatty acids (in alpha linoleic form), usually found in fish, which help fight cardiovascular disease. Another abundant nutrient in avocado is vitamin K, a fat-soluble vitamin essential for blood clotting. It is also surprisingly high in fibre. Nutritional attributes apart, growing my own avocadoes fulfills a unique, northern-latitude fantasy. The sex life of the avocado is very complicated, as the tiny flowers can be either male or female depending on the time of day and the temperature. After trying to get my head around whether the flower is a he or she on the afternoon on the second day when the temperature is 70F, I have decided not to carry my research further. But I assure you that it’s a bit of a miracle that we get avocadoes at all.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

The wondrous colourful world of Bali… One thing that Bali is not short of is colour – all around us, both natural and manmade. Across much of the island, green rice fields abound, dotted with colourful birds, amphibians and serpents, a kaleidoscope of stunning flowers grace lush tropical gardens and blue coastal waters are fringed with yellow and sparkling black sand. Balinese have always celebrated the beauty of their island in colours, decking temples in yellows, whites and reds gilded with gold and silver; and weaving bright textiles to adorned themselves lavishly for ceremonies. It’s easy to see why visitors to Bali are astonished by the sheer number of brightly painted statues, vibrant processions, multi-coloured outriggers, goldgilded gamelan orchestras – the list of colourful things is seemingly endless... Many of the coloured things we observe are just plain bizarre or are even taboo for us: green or purple cakes, baby chicks spray-painted in luminous fluorescence. Other things most people see as just plain kitch: cassette covers sporting brightly coloured backgrounds that offset even more colourful words printed in cartoon-style fonts; kids’ blue, red and white sports uniforms; modern dance costumes with all their feathers and glitter... So why do Balinese love to use so much colour? The obsession with vibrant colour probably has its roots in India and Hinduism where devotion is supported by colourful offerings and rituals. Decoration and ornamentation demonstrates a heightened level of devotion, and it so happens that vibrant colours occur naturally on Bali. Also, Balinese people, with their tanned skin, look great in colour and it is highlighted beautifully by gold. Paler, Western skin types never seem to look right in these colours even though many Balinese believe that lighter skin suits any colour. As development on the island continues at breakneck speed, there’s no doubt that some of the colour is being superseded by the greys of concrete. On the other hand, as the tourist dollar pours in and more people get their piece of the pie, Balinese are busily decorating their temples and houses with even more gold carvings. One thing is for sure, Bali would never be Bali without colour. Vaughan Hatch has immersed himself with Balinese culture, living with locals in Bali since 1997. He speaks fluent Indonesian and Balinese, and is unashamedly addicted to playing gamelan. A linguistic, archaeology and publishing graduate, he works for indOKiwi ‘linguistic and cultural solutions’ in Sanur. Email him on or call (0361) 464201 for further queries.

TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

Politics and Society in Southeast Asia

by Peter A. Poole

In a succinct and straightforward manner, Politics and Society in Southeast Asia analyzes the major political and economic reforms that resulted from the Asian 1997-1998 financial crisis, looking particularly closely at how such reforms helped to prepare Asian countries to cope with the 2009 global recession.

Colonial Rule” and “The Judiciary the Rule of Law” in the chapter on Laos for example.

The 1997-1998 crisis caused severe hardship in the 10 countries of Southeast Asia. Many countries tightened their regulation of banks and other financial institutions, adopted more conservative fiscal policies, and made themselves less vulnerable to Western market fluctuations by forming closer trade and investment ties with their neighbors.

Though Poole’s tone is measured and his writing style composed, this historian doesn’t mince words. I appreciate the way he sticks out his neck, making his book considerably more readable than if he were to just recite the facts. He’s opinionated, passes judgments on leaders, assesses their political skills and weaknesses, and takes pains to cautiously predict outcomes. It is obvious when Poole dislikes a political personality or some risky, ill-advised government policy. Yet he will bestow praise when he feels it is earned.

By 2009, it was clear that the Asian countries had failed to decouple their economies from the West, but by the beginning of the new decade they were making modest recoveries. This was remarkable when you consider that their political systems cover a broad spectrum, from the military dictatorship of Myanmar to the absolute monarchy of Brunei to democratic and “semi-democratic” states like Indonesia and Cambodia, while Singapore and Malaysia are much wealthier than the others. Each of the ten country chapters follow the same outline: historical background, social and political system, economic development, and foreign relations. Each chapter’s pithy subtitle sums up the respective country’s political reality: Cambodia: Between Two Powerful Neighbors; Myanmar: ASEAN’s Problem State; Malaysia: Politics of a Plural Society; Singapore: City with a Siege Mentality; Indonesia: A Shallow-Rooted Democracy, and so forth. Inevitably, because the book was published in 2009, some information has gone out of date and a number of recent events are glaringly absent. Not covered are the horrific attacks by hard-line Islamic groups on the peaceful Ahmadiyah community in Banten and the burning of three churches in central Java in February, two events which throw into question Indonesia’s tenuous hold on religious tolerance.

Peter A. Poole worked as an on the ground foreign service officer in Cambodia, Thailand and the Philippines and has directed international studies programs at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. Poole now teaches comparative government at George Mason University in Virginia. He was drawn to the field of Asian studies in the early 1960s by Bernard Fall, a hands-on and intrepid scholar who lost his life to a land mine in Vietnam in 1965.

Of SBY during his excellent summary of Indonesia’s 2004 presidential elections, Poole writes that the candidate “was an effective speaker with a charismatic personality. He campaigned tirelessly, and the media made him a national celebrity. Yudhoyono was forceful, articulate, and obviously intelligent. Megawati was shy and reserved in public, and she failed to make a strong case for her reelection for president.” The author is less kind with Cambodia’s strongman Hun Sen whom he describes as “tough, intimidating, with a bombastic and stormy temperament.” Poole also says it like it is when it comes to his caustic discussion of the PAP party which has ruled Singapore since 1959, controlling every facet of the island state’s political and social life. Anyone who dares to effectively opposes PAP “loses and they are often accused of libel and sued for enormous sums in the courts which always side with the ruling party.” His contempt is barely disguised, verging on sarcasm.

The book’s black and white political maps are basic but serviceable, showing insular Southeast Asia, Kalimantan and Sumatra, the Philippines and Myanmar. There are no photographs. The “Further Reading” sections at the end of each chapter, as well as the book’s bibliography, comprise exhaustive and useful reading lists.

Also not covered is the Red Shirt revolution in Thailand, the collapse of the Dong in Vietnam, the first election of a civilian in Myanmar in 50 years, the election of the son of Corazon Aquino as president of the Philippines, or the bloody clashes near the Preah Vihear Temple in the border area between Cambodia and Thailand in 2011.

The concluding chapter looks ahead with optimism at the prospects for Southeast Asia’s place in a more integrated Asia. This book’s quick pace, the insightful summaries and the dramatic retelling of events make it a first class survey of Southeast Asia not only university students but the public at large.

Each chapter has an “Events” table that encapsulates all the defining episodes in the country’s history from ancient times to the present, an “Economy” table showing yearly economic growth rates since 2006, and a “Demographic Overview” table that lists statistics and percentages of population, life expectancy, ethnic groups, students in primary school, the literacy rate, etc. A “Conclusions” section summarizes the country’s most important economic advances, potential for growth, political liabilities.

Swedish Crime (novels) on the Rise By Uma Anyar One doesn’t generally; think of Sweden as place where crime is the main topic of discussion. But in the publishing world, especially in the crime fiction genre, Sweden rules! Recently, Three Seconds, by Roslund and Hellstom, has won the best Swedish crime novel award and is currently on its way to becoming an international bestseller. Is there a crime novel reader in any country who has not heard of the “Millennium Trilogy” by Stieg Larsson, who died in 2004 at age fifty and sadly never saw his books in print? The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who played with Fire and The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest are not only financially successful, having sold over fourteen million copies in the U.S. alone, but have become big time movies. A Swedish version is available and a Hollywood one is in the works. The books are appropriately ‘now’ as the heroine is a punkish computer hacker with a strong streak of the avenging angel in her nature. Lisbeth Salander is a compelling combination of feminist values and female strength. She is damaged, determined and dangerous. If ever there was a woman who could convince the world that misogyny, in any form, is evil and should be punished, then Lisbeth, the girl with a dragon tattoo, is she. Larsson’s crusading journalist, Mikael Blomqvist, and other more recently arrived activists are riding the crest of the Swedish crime novel wave started by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo in the nineteen sixties. At sixty-three Henning Mankell, writer and political activist is going strong and working on a number of projects including a screenplay on his father-in-law, Ingmar Bergman, who died in 2007. Mankell is one of the most prolific writers living. “I’m always working. Since I travel so much, I have had to learn how to work wherever I am.” He divides his time between Sweden and Mozambique. “One foot in the snow, the other in the sand.” He has written over twenty-five novels and many plays, some of which have been performed by Teatro Avenida, in Maputo, Mozambique which he supports and has brought to prominence. Last year the theater company was in Norway and performed the acclaimed production of Nora’s Daughters, the story of what happens to the two daughters of Nora from Ibsen’s A Dolls House. It must have been a particularly personal play to write since Mankell’s mother, like Nora, left the family when he was two years old. Mankell has written several novels about Africa. He works for AIDS awareness and for AIDS related causes such as the horrifying revelation that desperate Africans have been used

as guinea pigs to test antiviral drugs with out their consent, by powerful drug companies. His Kennedy’s Brain, a title that is a metaphor for important things, information, and people disappearing just as parts of John F. Kennedy’s brain disappeared at the hospital in Dallas. Conspiracy theories abound and sometimes the most bizarre ones are true. It is the disheveled Detective Kurt Wallander, a fallible, very human and rather ordinary man from Ystad, Sweden, who has catapulted Mankell to twenty- five million readers worldwide. Last year, in Germany, more people read Wallander than read Harry Potter. Readers and viewers identify with the likeable Wallander character. He is far from ‘ hot ‘or ‘now’, but he has spawned a tourist center and guided tours to houses and places mentioned in his books. Over 30,000 visitors show up annually in Ystad eager to rub up against Mankell’s fictional characters’ ‘real landscape’. What could be a more postmodern phenomenon than that?

Kurt Wallander has found his way into the post World War Two collective unconscious. Like Mankell, Wallander, is a work-a-holic; his wife has left him but still cares for him as a person and father of their daughter. After nine novels Mankell turns the series toward the daughter, Linda, who is the main character in Before the Frost (2005).

Wallander is a lonely guy who feels the pain of living in the ways his readers also do. He gets the bad guys many of who are often international criminals and racists. But he has the same troubles relating and bonding with his family as real-life men do. He is not a witty, tough New York style cop who can eat apple pie while chatting up a sexy forensic inspector over a dissected corpse. The ‘I can take it, because I have seen it all’ cynicism is left out of the Wallander series. Crime upsets Kurt Wallander and he tries to do something about the wrongs, even though he wonders if anything can really be done. The hunger for sensitive, thoughtful crime solving detectives is huge. Currently there are two Kurt Wallander series on DVD offered by Amazon. The Swedish one features Krister Henrickson and the British series stars Kenneth Branagh.I have seen the British production with the tired, flabby Kenneth Branagh version of Wallander and found it engrossing and well paced. What a relief to not have an overload of high–speed chase scenes. That formula is dead and should be buried. The director, Philip Martin, and cinematographer, Anthony Dod Mantle, have given their viewers pleasing pastoral landscapes with the occasional farm house to wonder about. We have seen this scenic inclusive approach used in the British country murder genre but there is so much more blue sky in Sweden. In one deceptively serene episode opening, the screen is filled with flowering-rape fields and then the camera zooms through this fecundity down to a woman who self immolates herself in the midst of beauteous nature because she is terrified of policemen. “She burned herself because she was afraid of me,” bemoans Wallander.

It is precisely this horror aspect, unexpected in a beautiful and cold country that has drawn and shaken up readers and viewers alike. It is that hidden, little understood, underexposed darker side of a Sweden that for a long time has been associated with modern furniture, herring and blond people, who have a government that cares for them. It is a socialist paradise with a lovely accent. Or is it? Mankell has said that literature reflects us back to ourselves. He sees writing as a way to reach into the dynamic zeitgeist of the times he lives in and make a difference as to how things play out in the real world. “I wish I could be more useful and that the world become a more decent place.” Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that Henning Mankell will be one of the festivals featured writers.

The Bali Rugby Club returned a little washed out from their efforts in the inaugural Makassar Rugby 10s. Hosted by the Matano Miners Rugby Club of Soroako, South Sulawesi, the event was to the first ever rugby tournament to be held on the island of Sulawesi. Five other teams joined the Bali squad, which was made up of mainly development players. Jago Dulu and the Komodos from Jakarta, the Sumbawa Nagas, and the Gosowong Ghosts from Halmahera Island in North Maluku made up the competing teams. An inexperienced Bali team, with at least five players playing their first ever game of rugby, took on the Gosowong Ghosts in terribly wet conditions, with the pitch looking more like a swimming pool. Bali was defeated 7-0 by the more experienced Ghosts. Bali improved in their second game against the hosts Matano Miners, whose 5-0 victory came

Youth cricket continues to develop in Bali, as demonstrated by the second Annual Wali Kota Cup held in Denpasar midFebruary. The event, supported by the Denpasar branch of the national governing body of sport in KONI, was held at the Kompiang Sujana Stadium. Organised by National team player and Denpasar Cricket Club Captain/Coach Wayan Suandi and the Head of Cricket Denpasar Nyoman Yudha with the assistance of the Denpasar Cricket Club, over 50 teenagers from four schools around Denpasar participated in two days of enjoyable cricket. As a tropical downpour the night before the tournament made the centre of the ground unplayable, the part of the field was used for two games played simultaneously. The games followed the modified Kanga-cricket like format using soft balls rather than hard leather balls. Using a points based system for the round robin format, the results were: 1st: SMP 6 (A Team) 2nd: SMP 11 3rd: SMP Nasional 4th: SMP 6 (B Team) 5th: SMP 9 Winners of the Individual Awards: Best Batting: Yayas (SMP 6 - A Team) Best Bowling: Dimas (SMP 11) Best Fielding: Arya (SMP 9)

The annual IISSAC (Indonesian International Small Schools’ Activities Conference) basketball championship was held last weekend in Bali for the first time, and was a tremendous success. The parity in the six-team (boys and girls) tournament was unprecedented, as the tournament featured four games that were tied at the end of regulation time.

Hosts Bali International School put forward their best performance to date, with the boys finishing first in the round-robin, only to be surprised in the semi-finals. The girls’ team managed a semifinal berth, but lost to BAIS for the second time in the tournament.

Kurt Lovell of Bali Rugby was happy with how the tournament panned out for Bali, with the event providing valuable experience for the team. “We’re getting a lot of new players in Bali and we wanted to get as many of them here to play as possible as they need to play matches if they want to improve.” Players from Bali Rugby’s development team are now keener than ever now that the season is under way, added Kurt.

The knockout round produced some thrilling finishes, including defending champion Surabaya Cobras girls’ team surviving an overtime scare from Mountain View International Christian School (Salatiga, Central Java) 24-23. Surabaya eventually defeated Bandung Alliance International School to take the girls’ title. Meanwhile, the Mountain View boys team completed the repeat of 2010, and defeated Bandung Alliance 19-13 in overtime to take the boys’ title.

I must sound like a broken record talking to young parents about powdering their babies and even themselves. Cultures throughout the world love to fluff their babies and children with powder all over their bodies, especially on their tushies and for baby girls this could be a death sentence. Why is talc harmful? Talc is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos. Talc particles have been shown to cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs of cancer victims. For the last 30 years, scientists have closely scrutinized talc particles and found dangerous similarities to asbestos. In 1973, the FDA in the United States drafted a resolution that would limit the amount of asbestos-like fibers in cosmetic grade talc. However, no ruling has ever been made and today, cosmetic grade talc remains non-regulated by governments all over the world. A National Toxicology Program in America reported that cosmetic grade talc caused tumors in animal subjects and stated that Clearly with or without asbestos-like fibers, cosmetic grade talcum powder is a carcinogen. What kind of exposure is dangerous? Talc is toxic. Talc particles cause tumors in human ovaries and lungs. Numerous studies have shown a strong link between frequent use of talc in the female genital area and ovarian cancer. Talc particles are able to move through the reproductive system and become imbedded in the lining of the ovary. Researchers have found talc particles in ovarian tumors and have found that women with ovarian cancer have used talcum powder in their genital area more frequently than healthy women. Talc poses a health risk when exposed to the lungs. Talc miners have shown higher rates of lung cancer and other respiratory illnesses from exposure to industrial grade talc, which contains dangerous silica and asbestos. The common household hazard posed by talc is inhalation of baby powder by infants. Since the early 1980s, records show that several thousand infants each year have died or become seriously ill following accidental inhalation of baby powder. Even pets aren’t immune to the effects of talc powder. Talc is a common ingredient in flea powder which unsuspecting pet owners often sprinkle on their dogs to prevent fleas. They may be not only endangering the health of their dogs, but the well being of the entire family with this dangerous practice. What is talc? Talc is a mineral, produced by the mining of talc rocks and then processed by crushing, drying and milling. Processing eliminates a number of trace minerals from the talc, but does not separate minute fibers which are very similar to asbestos. What kinds of consumer products contain talc? Talc is found in a wide variety of consumer products ranging from home and garden pesticides to antacids. However, the products most widely used and that pose the most serious health risks are body powders. Talc is the main ingredient in baby powder, medicated powders, perfumed powders and designer perfumed body powders. Because talc is resistant to moisture, it is also used by the pharmaceutical industry to manufacture medications and is a listed ingredient of some antacids. Talc is the principal ingredient home and garden pesticides and flea and tick powders. Talc is used in smaller quantities in deodorants, chalk, crayons, textiles, soap, insulating materials, paints, asphalt filler, paper, and in food processing. What about infants? Talc is used on babies because it absorbs unpleasant moisture. Clearly, dusting with talcum powder endangers an infant’s lungs at the prospect of inhalation. Exposing children to this carcinogen is unnecessary and dangerous. To reduce the dangers of talc exposure, make it a point to buy talc free products including talc free bath and body powders, facial powders, flea powders, and baby powders. If there’s any question as to whether a product you’re purchasing contains this harmful substance, contact the manufacturer before purchasing it. It’s particularly important to avoid using any powder containing talc on babies or in the genital region of adults. Fortunately, there are now talc free body powders available which will eliminate exposure to this harmful ingredient. Many of these powders are all natural and safe for the whole family to use on a daily basis. If you having trouble finding talc-free products here are some very simple recipes for making your own products at home.

How to Make Baby Powder Here is a terrific natural herbal powder that you can easily make at home that is exceptional in preventing diaper rash. Its gentle ingredients make it perfect for babies. Other possible uses include using this powder to relieve heat rashes or athlete’s foot, both of which are caused by warm and moist conditions. Both chamomile and arrowroot are naturally safe and hypoallergenic. Together, they will keep your skin dry and discourage irritations due to moisture and friction. Things You’ll Need: . 1 cup of arrowroot herb powder . 1 cup of dried chamomile herb . Blender . 1 Place the chamomile into the blender. . 2 Use the blender to grind the chamomile into a very fine powder. . 3 Stop the blender every few seconds and rub a bit between your fingers to ensure that there remains no grit or large fragments. . 4 Add the arrowroot and blend with the chamomile until fully incorporated. . 5 Place your herbal baby powder in a container Body Powder Things You’ll Need: . Jar that will hold 2 cups . 1 Cup of Rice Flour . 1/2 Cup Cornstarch . 15 drops of essential oil . Place the cornstarch and rice flour in a re-sealable jar. A mason jar, or a reused glass jar with a lid, works well. . Add 15 drops of your favorite essential oil. Invigorating scents work well in body powder. Some invigorating essential oils to consider are mint, rosemary, or lavender. Rosewood also has a very enjoyable fragrance that is commonly used in making perfume. If you would like your powder to have a masculine scent consider patchouli oil. . Place the lid on the jar and shake well to mix the ingredients. You can punch holes in the lid of the jar to create a shaker of body powder, or you can simply unscrew the lid and use a puff to apply the powder. Natural Flea Powder for Dogs or Cats If you are like many pet owners, your dog or cat is more like a family member than an animal. You also want to provide them with the best and safest methods of flea control. This natural alternative works wonders as a flea repellant. Things you’ll need . A large box of baking soda about 16 ounces . A large bowl. . 12 drops of Lavender Essential Oil OR Cedar Essential Oil. . Add 1 drop of essential oil at a time around the surface of the baking soda. . Mix very well. Stir the baking soda and essential oil together for at least 3 to 5 minutes so the essential oil is distributed evenly throughout the baking soda. . Take a handful of the mixture, which is your natural flea powder, and massage it into his fur. This is probably best done outside for dogs and in a small closed room for cats. Be sure to keep this away from your dog or cat’s face. Do not allow the powder to get into their eyes or near his nose. . Allow the flea powder to stay on the fur for 10 to 15 minutes or as long as your pet will allow. Then brush your dog or cat to remove the excess.

the art of body Burn More Fat on the Treadmill

Advanced Ozone Therapy increases the level of the ATP molecule, which is responsible for a wide range of conditions within the cells. More importantly, they are the main energy providers that facilitate all of the normal processess of human metabolism

For most people treadmills make them feel like a lab rat: caged in a gym, getting nowhere, with a vague sense that life is pointless. Fortunately, there are ways to make the treadmill work for you. Although, you could be running outside, treadmils have shown some great benefits. Research has shown that: Men who exercised for 30 minutes on a treadmill boosted their levels of phenylacetic acid-a natural antidepressant-by 77 percent. Running for an hour or more per week reduces your chance of coronary heart disease by 42 percent, according to Harvard researchers. Running on a treadmill instead of on roads reduces your chances of a stress fracture by at least 48 percent, a study showed. Boredom Busters for the Belt: (For all of these, make sure you jog easily for 5 minutes to warm up, jog another 5 to cool down, and stretch afterward.) Mix it up with incline intervals The term “intervals” usually means a series of short, hard runs interspersed with jogging or walking. In this variation, instead of speeding up for the hard stints, you increase the incline. The high level of effort will improve your power, says Tony Veney, a track coach at UCLA. Here’s how: Set the treadmill’s speed for about half of your full effort. Set the incline at 3 percent and run for 20 to 30 seconds, then return to a zero incline for 30 seconds. Repeat this sequence at 5 percent, and then 7 percent. That’s one repetition. Do eight to 10 repetitions.

Give TV a time out If there’s a television in your gym use it to time your “pickups” (sustained intervals in which you pick up the pace.) Say you’re watching a basketball game; Whenever the clock stops (time-outs, foul shots), bump up your pace to about 80 percent effort. When the game’s in progress, dial down to a jog. It works with any sport or any TV show. (Warning: You need to be in good shape for this one.) Power up the tunes A study has shown that people listening to tunes can handle much higher workload. It is even better if you adjust your music to the speeds you’ll be going at. So, you could start up with Coldplay, mix in some White Stripes and end with the Ramones. Try some negative splits No, this doesn’t refer to an uptight cheerleader. This concept burns fat, makes the time fly, and will help you in your next race. “Negative splits” means you’re running faster at the end than at the start. In this session, start at a jog, and at every quarter mile, punch the speed button one beep higher. (You can do this for any length interval.) Push this as long as you like, but give yourself a smooth cool down. Breaking the run into chunks makes it less tedious, and training your body to start slow and end fast will pay off next time you’re in a road race; you’ll hold back at the start when your adrenaline is high, and finish strong when others fade. Crest that hill Run for 3 minutes at a 3 percent incline, then flatten it out and maintain the same level of effort by speeding up the belt a few notches for 1 minute. Recover with a minute of jogging, and then repeat the sequence three times. Live on the edge When you get bored, slow your stride (not the speed of the treadmill) so you drift toward the back edge of the belt. When your heels touch the end, quickly step up to the front. Do this at a relatively slow belt speed and don’t try it until you can run without looking at any part of the treadmill for 30 seconds. Use a heart-rate monitor If you are bored with the readouts on the treadmill, add another source of input : a heart-rate monitor. You should train at 60-80 percent of your maximum heart rate because as you exceed 80 percent, results do not increase proportionally to your work says the American Heart Association. See how inclines affect your rate and notice how quickly your heart recovers from a burst of effort.

C/He/G-9 March 11


by Angela Dewan

I like kids. I do. But I was not feeling such a maternal instinct two Saturdays ago when a bunch of kampung kids stood on the roof next door and watched me swim laps. They kept their eyes on me the whole time, moving their little heads from left to right, like spectators watching a tennis match in slow motion.

Just a week in, I had been to all the places I had missed most – the beach for a swim and bake in the sun, fresh juice and good book in hand; the fish market, where you can sit by the water with a piece of fish fresh off the boat; the neighborhood for a jog by the trees and beautiful sandstone houses. Perfect. Sort of.

They stood there under the guise of kite-flying, but the kite never flew, they just dangled to ground from the kids’ hands. They had been visiting the rooftop all week, watching one bule after another go through the same routine. I tried to say hello, but they said nothing. They just stared. They were beginning to creep me out.

After hitting a few Sydney bars last Saturday night, I tried to head home at around three in the morning. Changeover time. I had forgotten – taxi drivers often end their shifts at 3 a.m., and it can be impossible to find a cab if you happen to leave at that time.

Great. Just another thing to add to my list of “things that irk me in Jakarta”. As a foreigner, being stared at is something you get used to and learn to block out, but my home had always been a sanctuary from those things. These kids could be just the thing to push me over the edge, I thought. But they weren’t. The ojek guys did that job. Not only had these guys got me lost around town countless times, they had the nerve to call out at me as I got home late that same Saturday night, exhausted, high-heels in hand.

I had told my friends that I would be OK to get home, and they had all left. After failing to find a cab, I got a bus halfway home and thought I’d have better luck finding a taxi from there.

I took off my heels and sat in the bus shelter until I could come up with a plan. A car drove by, and a young man stuck his head out. I’m not one to hitch hike, but perhaps whoever this was could help me find a cab at least.

But those kids had pushed my buttons earlier that day, and I’d had enough of my neighborhood. Neighbors should be neighborly, I decided, and I stormed up to them, barefoot, ready to give them an earful.

Instead he yelled at me – something very rude and derogatory – and sped right by. There I was again, two Saturday nights in a row, heels in hand, being harassed on the street.

“Ojek?” one of them asked me, offering a ride on the motorbike. “No, I don’t want an ojek,” I replied in Indonesian.

The difference was, what this guy yelled out to me was far more insulting than what Pak Reebox had said, and at least Pak Reebox could have driven me home. What I would have done for an ojek!

“I want you to stop laughing at me every time I come home. I don’t make fun of your ridiculous clothes. Your T-shirt says Reebox for god’s sake! Reebox!”

I sat there in the dark, the silence was deafening. In my mind I could hear the Bajaj and the buzz of a Jakarta night. If I screamed here, would anyone even hear me?

Their jaws dropped and as I turned and went home, the others started laughing at poor old Pak Reebox.

I knew they would most certainly hear me scream in Jakarta. Not just the ojek guys, but the warung woman who’s always open for a midnight snack and even the kampung kids who never seem to sleep. I strangely missed the noise, the neighbors who are always in my business and even the kids on the roof.

Sydney and Jakarta could not be any more different. Outside the window of my family’s home is a serene view of the water, no one to be seen, nothing but the breeze and birds to be heard. It is the perfect space to feel inspired to write or just relax.

I got off the bus, but there were no cabs to be found. In fact, there was no one around. The pub across the road had shut and calling a cab would mean a good 30-minute wait. I didn’t know what to do. I started to panic. I couldn’t get home in my own hometown.

Admittedly, what they said wasn’t so offensive. The usual pointing and commenting on my less-than-conservative outfit. Living by a kampung, I’d heard it all before.

This seems to happen every two months or so in Jakarta – the everyday frustrations build up until I lose it at someone. Luckily, I happened to be going on a much-needed trip home to Sydney the next day. I didn’t know how I had timed it so well.

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

Quantum Transformation with Sandra

Sandra St. Yves began her journey doing spiritual work as a child. She was very sensitive and had the ability to see spirits, but being born into a Catholic family, her abilities weren’t perceived as gifts, but rather as something more malevolent. Her parents thought that she was possessed and couldn’t accept her psychic powers. Even so, Sandra was unwavering in her quest for a deeper understanding of the occult and methods for developing her own psychic abilities. By the age of 15 she was reading the Tarot, studying witchcraft and utilizing the Ouija (pronounced ‘wee jee’) board to communicate with beings from the spirit world. It wasn’t until 14 years later at the age of 29, that Sandra expanded her skills to include energy healing. She was living in Devon, England, when she discovered a crystal ball that she intuitively felt was calling her. “I thought, THIS is crazy, but I felt drawn to pick up the crystal ball. I brought it home with me and held it in the bathtub that night. The next thing I knew I had all this information downloaded into me. It was really quite strange, because I could feel it traveling up my arm and into my third eye. That was really the beginning. I had all this information, so I began meditating regularly and got more downloads with healing methods. For example, I learned about how to use the breath to charge someone’s energy field – something I never knew how to do before. I’d read a book, and suddenly I’d find the mantra or technique I’d just learned from one of my meditations the week before,” says Sandra. Sandra’s healing work is a unique blend of intuition, energetic healing and science; she has the talent for communicating with even the most skeptical person, because of her academic background and keen analytical mind. While she was doing her degree in psychology, she decided to marry together psychology with Quantum Physics. Her professors thought she was crazy, but she felt strongly that this was the new paradigm. She had a deep understanding of energy and magical work, because she had already been involved in this kind of work for years, but she wanted a concrete and rational way of explaining energy healing – something that seemed inexplicable or unbelievable to those who had never experienced it before. She realized that Quantum Physics was the ideal model to give greater credibility to energy healing, so that the mainstream world would accept it as valid. Through a series of events, she became a psychology lecturer which wasn’t something she’d set out to do. Her teaching evolved as she expanded her repertoire to include tarot classes, weekend workshops for healing techniques and stress management workshops. Sandra had a foot in both worlds; everything was coming together with ease, until one day she woke up with a heart attack. She was teaching stress workshops, but was in a very challenging relationship which was causing her a lot of heartache. Her guides had been communicating to her to pay attention and make the necessary changes in her life for her wellbeing, but she didn’t listen. This was a big wake up call that changed her life forever.

A believer in allowing for things to unfold in one’s life, Sandra came to Indonesia as a counselor for schools in Kalimantan and Jakarta, but then got offered a job in Bali. For her, this was a calling to come back to Spirit work. Desa Seni, a retreat center in Kerobokan, found out that Sandra had a diverse background in healing which comprises Clinical hypnotherapy, Reiki, EFT, Quantum Transformation, Crystal & sound healing, Psychic Tarot readings, past life regression, and more. They asked her to come to Bali to work for them and she agreed.

C/He/G-9 Feb. 11

Sandra’s healing work integrates mainstream and metaphysical techniques to heal mind, body and soul. About five years ago she discovered Reconnection and Matrix Energetics: two cutting edge healing modalities which work with Quantum Physics. Sandra acknowledges that there are some similarities between her Quantum transformational work and Richard Bartlett’s ‘Matrix Energetics’, but there are also some distinct differences. Her own energetic healing work is really an amalgam of all the modalities she has learned over the past 20 years. “Quantum Transformation is a way of entering into the zero point field. By entering into this field, we start to be able to manifest what we want whether it’s a situation or shift in our physical condition. We can do this because we’re interacting with photons, particles and light. We are taking the wave form which consists of all these things and interacting with it. We then send out our intention and go into the zero point field through the heart where our intention is pure and use techniques to enter into this wave,” says Sandra.

C/He/G-1 Dec. 10

It’s Sandra’s intention to give her clients tools for their own empowerment and self-healing, so that they don’t need to keep coming back to her. She believes that we’re now in an era when everyone needs to find his/her own way. Sandra is also an ardent believer in the ‘Law of Attraction’. She asserts that she has learned to have faith in the Universe even when things get tough. “When we get tests it’s actually a good thing, because it means we can handle more now. Maybe these tests will teach us how to move forward. I ask myself, ‘can I do something about this situation?’ If I can, then I do, but if I can’t then I let it go. I’m still learning to trust just like everyone else, but I feel that I’ve got to walk my talk. I won’t ask my clients to do anything that I haven’t done myself. One of the things we’re being challenged to do in this time is become co-creators of our lives.” For more information about Sandra, please contact #087877793001 or email: For questions or comments about this column, please email: Copyright 2011 © Michele Cempaka C/He/I-09 March 11

Your liver is vital to your health as it plays an important role in your body’s metabolic processes – particularly detoxification. Most of us take our liver for granted: it’s probably the most ignored organ in your body, even though it is one of the most important.

How many of you have taken the time on a yearly basis to say: “It’s about time I cleaned by liver to make sure it stays healthy!” I would guess probably very few of you! That’s a shame because a healthy liver is critical for maintaining perfect health. Let’s take a look at why! Your liver: • Detoxifies all the toxins it encounters both from inside or outside your body, converting fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble substances you can get rid of. The waste may also be converted into bile, which is useful in digestion. • Detoxifies environmental pollutants. If your liver didn’t continually remove metabolic waste and toxins from your bloodstream, you’d be dead in a matter of hours. • Filters harmful toxins and substances out of nearly 100 gallons of blood every day and allows nutrients to reach your cells. • Produces more than 13,000 crucial chemicals and hormones including cholesterol, testosterone and estrogen. It also manages more than 50,000 enzymes to maintain a healthy body. • Regulates blood-sugar levels and prevents dangerous spikes and lows. • Production of blood proteins, clotting factors and substances important to the production of red blood cells (erythrocytes) • Stores essential vitamins and minerals – including vitamins A, D, K and B12 – that help keep your bones strong. When you’re overloaded with toxins such as alcohol, prescription drugs, household chemicals, processed foods and more, your liver finds another way to get rid of waste. It creates balls of fat that collect in the liver itself. Those fats also spill into your bloodstream in the form of triglycerides, which increase your risk of heart disease. Your liver also moves those toxins to other areas of your body, including your skin. In fact, skin conditions like dandruff and psoriasis are signs that your liver isn’t working effectively and it requires a good cleaning. What this amounts to is a systematic poisoning of your body that robs you of your strength, vitality … and even your sex drive. Chronic fatigue, high blood pressure and autoimmune disorders often stem from a sick liver.

cell, although it becomes depleted with stress, sickness and age. By giving an IV infusion of ALA your liver is detoxified significantly and can even be regenerated. IV ALA therapy has been used with great success to heal and regenerated diseased livers. This is a powerful therapy! Rectal Ozone Infusions – ozone when inserted in the rectum is absorbed by the veins in that area and is taken directly to the liver. It then massively stimulates the detoxification enzymes in the liver by 400%! A wonderful liver detox therapy! EBOO Whole Body Ozone therapy – by performing this ozone procedure your blood and organs are cleansed of toxins and wastes thereby reducing greatly the work of the liver. Ozone also opens up the blood flow to all the organs including the liver for improved functions and for better detoxification. A great liver detox treatment! Milk Thistle (Silymarin) - silymarin and related flavonoids are some of the most potent liver-protecting substances known. These flavonoids are powerful antioxidants so protect the liver from damaging toxins and free radicals. They also stimulate healing and the production of new liver cells and cause the liver to increase production of glutathione. Silymarin has been proven to both protect liver cells and repair existing damage in animals intoxicated with mushroom toxins, medicines, heavy metals or toxic organic solvents. Exercise. All you need is 10 minutes of variable intensity exercise each day. Even if you don’t drop weight, clinical studies show you’ll still improve your liver enzymes. Eat the right Foods - fried, spicy and starchy foods contain too many toxins and harmful chemicals in the form of color and flavoring agents, chemicals and preservatives. Drink plenty of water. This helps your liver flush out toxins because water acts as a lubricating agent.

So there you have it - the right way to perform a liver detoxification for a much improved liver and for much improved overall health and vitality. When you combine the liver detox as part of a whole body detoxification program, the results are even more dramatic.

Liver Detox the Right Way •

Glutathione therapy – glutathione is your body’s master antioxidant and is highly concentrated in the liver. By giving an IV infusion of high dose glutathione directly into your blood, your liver is immediately flooded with this all important detoxifying antioxidant. Ozone Colonic Therapy – since the liver detoxifies and dumps a large amount of its waste into the intestines, a clean colon is essential for a healthy and clean liver. Perform 3-6 colonics every year to keep your colon clean and healthy. The ozone is also highly detoxifying.

Underground pressure means the volcano “Lusi,” in Sidoarjo, East Java, is likely to gush gray mud until 2037, when volumes will become negligible, according to their computer model. But gas will continue to percolate through it for decades and possibly centuries to come. “Our estimate is that it will take 26 years for the eruption to drop to a manageable level and for Lusi to turn into a slow bubbling volcano,” said team leader Richard Davies, a professor of Earth sciences at

Its staying power means it will be a long-term but gradually less dramatic menace, Davies warned. “I think we’ve seen the most dramatic destruction. But it’s not the end of the story,” he said. The Indonesian government blames the eruption on an earthquake that struck days before, about 174 miles (280km) away. But foreign experts accuse a gas drilling company, Lapindo Brantas, of failing to place a protective casing around a section of its well.

The Health Ministry revealed on Thursday that a proposed ban on tobacco advertising would only be imposed in stages, as agreed upon by drafters of the decree. Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih said it was unclear when the draft would be finished, but officials definitely wanted phased implementation. “In discussions about the decree to implement the tobacco clause of the [2009] Health Law, it has been agreed that we will not immediately impose a total ban,” Endang said. The ministry, she added, would likely start banning cigarette ads and sponsorships at schools, concerts and events geared toward students. The policy would also require tobacco companies to include health warnings on packets, with pictures of the effects of smoking-related diseases. Tjandra Yoga Aditama, the ministry’s chief of disease control and environmental health, said he hoped the decree could be enforced soon. “The decision is very new. Please wait for details,” he said. “I can only say that the ministry is hoping the decree will be imposed as soon as possible.” Tjandra said officials agreed to the “gradual” implementation of the ban after stakeholders - including cigarette companies, farmers and factory workers - said the public should be informed about the decree first. (February 18th 2011) Flood Submerges 475 Houses in Three Villages in Bali Floods inundated 475 houses in three villages of Gerokgak subdistrict, Buleleng district, North Bali, from Tuesday (22/2) evening to Wednesday (23/2) morning. The three villages were Tinga-Tinga, Celukan Bawang, and Pengulon, Head of Buleleng district`s disaster management division, Nyoman Astasemadi, said here Wednesday. There were 108 flood-hit houses in Pengulon. As a result, many of its residents took refuge to safer places, such as the village head`s office, he said. 47 houses in Tinga-Tinga village were also submerged by 1.5-meter-high flood waters. A primary school building collapsed after being carried by the flood waters, he said. The village most affected was Celukan Bawang. 320 houses were inundated and a landslide buried the house one of a villagers. The flooding in also destroyed a 10-meter-long bridge and disrupted the flows of people and vehicles on the access roads of Pengulon and Patas villages. (February 23rd 2011) Tourists Flock to Bali’s ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ Sage Providence smiled on Balinese seer Ketut Liyer the day US tourist Elizabeth Gilbert came to visit - her memoir, “Eat, Pray, Love”, would make him richer than he ever dreamed. The fortune-teller said to be aged in his 90s - no one knows exactly - was a poor man when he looked into Gilbert’s eyes and predicted she would live in Bali and find true love. Gilbert worked her own magic and Ketut’s prediction became the stuff of Hollywood fantasy. Now there is a line of camera-toting tourists waiting outside his home to hear their own fortunes told, at 25 dollars a pop. That’s a fortune for a man who is more accustomed to bartering his predictions for simple gifts from local villagers. “From 8:00 am to 6:00 pm every day 50 people on average,” said his son, Nyoman, who acts as a translator. “It’s a great life,” he adds, as he checks the sequence of “clients”. As black storm clouds rolled across the sky one recent Sunday afternoon, the courtyard outside Ketut’s comfortable wooden house was packed with visitors, male and female, from all corners of the globe. Most of the sessions - which can involve readings or massages - seem to end in optimistic predictions of love and happiness, according to the customers surveyed. (February 27th 2011)

Bali Battling Rabies, Legionnaires Outbreaks

Indonesians Scramble to Keep Hollywood Films

An ongoing rabies outbreak in Bali has claimed the lives of another five people in recent days, taking the official death toll to more than 120. The latest deaths come after Bali Health Office chief Nyoman Sutedja on Monday (21/2) confirmed the disease had now spread to every district on the main island, as well as other islands that fall under its jurisdiction. At least 10 people have now died in Bali from rabies so far this year, taking the official total to 124 since an outbreak was declared in November 2008. Mr. Sutedja said on Monday that while the disease had spread to more villages, an ongoing vaccination program had seen the number of cases decline. The recent fatalities, including three in four days, appear to contradict that statement. While the official death toll now stands at 124, it is possible it could be higher because of a lack of proper reporting of fatalities associated with the disease. The Australian Government warns that people visiting Bali and other areas of Indonesia are strongly advised to avoid direct contact with dogs, cats, monkeys and other animals which carry the disease. It also warns that availability of post-exposure rabies treatment in Indonesia may be limited, which means bite victims may have to return to Australia or travel to a third country for immediate treatment. Bali, a popular holiday destination for Australians, has also been battling an outbreak of Legionnaire’s disease. At least 10 Australians had been treated for the potentially fatal flu-like disease since December after returning from Bali. West Australian health officials said it was likely they picked up the infection in the central Kuta area of Bali, the island’s main tourist destination. (February 24th 2011)

Indonesians are fighting to keep Hollywood films in local theaters after the Motion Picture Association of America warned that a new tax on foreign-made movies could lead to studios pulling out of the country. Indonesian authorities see the tax as a way to protect the domestic film industry. The MPAA has responded by saying that last week’s release of Oscar-nominated “Black Swan” could be the last for a Hollywood film in this nation of 237 million. Distributors from Europe and Asia have made similar warnings. Film-lovers have taken to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to complain, while the country’s largest cinema chain begged Monday for the government to drop the tax. “We’ll see theaters close one by one unless a solution is found,” warned Noorca Massardie, spokesman of 21 Cineplex, which has more than 500 screens. Studios participating in the boycott include Paramount Pictures, Sonny Pictures Entertainment, Walt Disney Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Warner Bros Entertainment and Universal Pictures, leaving Indonesian movie fans gasping. They spend an estimated $6.2 million a month at theaters. “It’s outrageous!” one woman wrote on Facebook. “They’re taking away our right to watch high-quality films.” She noted that domestic industry, still in its infancy stage, leaves much to be desired. Minister of Culture Jero Wacik said the tax will be reviewed - given the public outcry and concerns expressed by major theaters - with a final decision expected in two weeks. He refused to provide details about the new tax hike. (February 21st 2011)

Korean Investors Interested in Constructing Dam in Bali

British Tourists to Bali up 2.77 pct

Korean investors are interested in constructing a dam in the Unda river`s estuary which was once a mining location, in Gunaksa village, Klungkung district, Bali, a local official said. “There has been a discussion between the Klungkung district administration and the Korean investors about the latter`s wish to fund the dam project. But this time we are still conducting a survey on the location,” Tjokorde Gede Agung, Klungkung district deputy chief, said here Monday. Tjokorda Agung said the location of the proposed dam was once a sand mining site in Gunaksa village, Dawan sub district. “About 100 hectares of land are needed for the project,” he added. The water reservoir was expected to meet the need of people in Gianyar district and Denpasar city,” Tjokorda Agung said. He said the discharge of waters flowing from the upstream to the dam can generate about 1,500 liters per second. The volume of the water discharge is expected to meet the need of clean water for the people in three districts and one city in Bali, he said. Tjokorda Agung said now the Korean investor team are conducting a survey and doing development engineering detail (DED). “To supply waters to the two areas, the investor will install pipe which will be in an approximately 38 kilometers long,” he explained. He said that if the survey is going according to the plan, the construction will hopefully start this year. “We hope in 2013 the dam will be operating and supply waters to Gianyar and Denpasar. The income from this project is expected to go to the Klungkung district`s original income,” Tjokorda Agung said. Besides receiving Unda river`s water, the dam will also be developed as a tourist site, he added. (February 24th 2011)

Bali had 96,412 British tourists in 2010, an increase of 2.77 percent over the previous year`s 93,688 people, Head of Bali Statistics Central Agency, Gede Suarsa said here, Tuesday (22/2). Gede Suarsa added, Britain ranked eighth, up in ratings from the previous year which are in the position of caretaker of nine or ten countries supplying the most of the foreign tourists to the island. Britain ranked eighth after Australia, Japan, China, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, France and Singapore. Britain contributed 3.74 percent of total number of foreign tourists on vacation in the island reaching 2,576,142 persons in 2010, an 8.01 percent increase from the previous year`s 2,385,122 people. Gede Suarsa explained that of the ten countries that supplied most of the foreign tourists to Bali, six had experienced a significant improvement while the other four showed a decline. The six countries have increased significantly in addition to England and Australia by 43.67 percent from 446,570 people to 641,588 people, Malaysia 16.03 percent from 135,190 people to 156,858 people, Taiwan 1.50 percent from 120,445 people to 122,256 people, Singapore 73.96 percent from 56,992 people to 97,402 people and German 12.77 percent from 74,849 people to 84,406 people.

The tiles are made with cement in a mould, the color pigments incorporated (dyes imported from Holland) the tiles are a then pressed by b machine, after which they are w immersed into a im water bath for w some time, and s once the cement o is set, they are then dried and th polished, ready p to use or export.

Say What? Question: This happens to me a lot. I’ll walk into a McDonald’s, for example, to buy something to eat, and there will be only a couple of other people in the place. They all will have ordered. I’ll approach the counter, and just as I do, and the order-taker turns and walks away -usually never to be seen again. As the orders come up one by one, I stand at the countertop, waiting to place my order. Yet, each time a cashier comes to the counter to call out that an order is ready, I’ll glare hungrily into their eyes, which evokes no action or response. Then, they’ll scamper back out of sight, as if my making eye contact didn’t happened. This repeats itself until a new customer comes in, and someone scurries from the back to call out to the new patron, “May I help you”? Meanwhile, I am pushed aside by courtesy to clear the way for other people. I kid you not. This happens far too many times for it to be just a mistake. If I am with friends, all my friends generally order, get served, and leave while I’m still standing there waiting to place my order. Sure, I am reserved, shy, and introverted, but I am not a ghost! I hate this and have come to not want to go out anymore. What can I do to stop this unfair treatment? Dr ZZ: Unfair or not, it’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease, and from the sounds of what you’re describing, you apparently need a few pointers in self-assertiveness. Often it’s not enough to simply be present on the customer side of the counter to get the staff’s attention. You need to speak up and say, “Pardon me, I’m next.” “Excuse me. It’s my turn to order,” or “I beg your pardon. I was here first.” Chances are the servers on the other side of the counter are not intentionally ignoring you. As they come and go, if they continue to see you standing there, they may imagine that you have already been waited on. A few polite but firm statements to get their attention may be all you need to get on top of the game and to not feel as if you are a victim to it. Question: A few months ago my son had a bunch of college age friends over the house. When they were all in the pool, one of his friends came inside the house with his shirt off. He said hi, sat next to me, and made small talk. He was really buffed and had a great body. I asked to feel his muscles, and we flirted in a cute way. As we were sitting on the couch, he kissed me. I kissed him back and said,

Dr. ZZ: What are you supposed to do? Although there is nothing technically wrong with a 40-year old woman dating a 21-year old man, certain social relationships are off limits. Dating your children’s friends is one of them. You are playing with fire. The fact that the two of you are sneaking around behind the scenes raises flags. You also keep giving him permission to violate every boundary you set. First you tell him to stop kissing you; then you change you mind and continue. Next you tell him you are not going to have sex; then you plow forward though that boundary as well. This doesn’t speak highly of your personal integrity. Hanging your underwear on his wall is NOT a sign of respect or feelings for you. It’s the kind of thing young bucks do to advertise their conquests. He’s apparently more fascinated with the idea of having sex with an older, more experienced woman than he is with the idea of developing a relationship. Chances are he will tell your son; not much can be done about that. When your son comes to you for an explanation, tell him you are sorry, that parents make mistakes, and that you thought this guy really liked you. Don’t (I repeat, DO NOT) tell him that you suspected it would bother him, and you went ahead and did it anyway. Say you apologize, and it wasn’t your intention to hurt him. Then give him the space to get over his sense of betrayal. And oh, did I mention? Do everybody a favor, and don’t have sex with any more of his friends. Copyright © 2011 Say What?

A week later, he called me for a date, and I thought he was joking. He talked me into it, and the date went well. He came back to the house, and I told him we were not going to have sex. He said fine, we started making out, and after we fooled around for a while, I ended up getting naked and having sex with him. Since then, we have seen each other a couple of times a week, mostly just for sex, but recently we started having feelings for each other. Last weekend we went out, and we ended up at his apartment where we had great sex. I noticed that he had stolen four of my thongs from my bedroom and had them hanging on his wall. My son hangs out at his place, and I am frightened that he will tell my son about us. Do you think he may have already told my son? I really like him, but I am terrified that my son may find out. What am I supposed to do, and what am I supposed to do about my son?

Bali Hash House Harriers 2 Celebrates 1,000 Runs Imagine a group of crazy people scampering through the rice fields following a trail of shredded paper. Come rain or shine they run; over the rice bunds, through the forests and the little villages, up and down the hillsides, past the waterfalls, across deep gorges, over bamboo bridges and across raging rivers. Every now and again they hesitate, running around in confused circles like chooks with their heads cut off trying to find that elusive trail of shredded paper. Then someone finds the right way and they are off again with triumphant cries of “on on”.

trick setting a short false trail ending with a cross, this is known as a check back, and the runners must retrace their steps and search for the correct trail. The check back has an important function, it reminds the runners that the purpose is to have fun and anyone who takes it all a little too seriously and starts to become competitive will be quickly restored to a healthy sense of reality. The runners gather and at a predetermined time, usually in the cool of the late afternoon at around 4.30pm, they set off to follow the paper. It will lead them through beautiful countryside far away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas of Bali. After running or walking for an hour or so the runners return to the starting point where draught beer and soft drinks are served and, after half an hour or so of catching up with friends, the group gathers to form a circle. Led by the Hash Master new members and visitors are welcomed, stories from the run are shared, jokes may be told and songs may be sung. It is a time of fellowship and merriment and has led to the tongue in cheek description of the hash as a drinking club with a running problem.

island is crisscrossed with endless small paths and the topography is such that every moment the view changes. In Bali the best running country is in the area between Tabanan in the West and Gianyar in the East. The landscape can be stunning with sculptured hillsides and tropical forests in a mix of vegetation that is ever changing. This is also an area that is far enough ‘up country’ for the air to be cool and fresh while the hills are not too steep. Everywhere there are what landscapers would call ‘water features’ with tumbling streams, waterfalls and the irrigation canals and weirs of the world famous Subak system. It is rather like running through a huge natural park. This is the way to see the real Bali.

River Crossing

This may all sound somewhat bizarre but more and more people across the world are turning to this rather eccentric form of exercise to while away their leisure hours. These are the Hash House Harriers, a strange group of people who would rather run through the countryside than sit knitting in front of the television or walk the dog. They gather every week to have a run and share some fun and fellowship around a barrel of beer. The House House Harriers were first started in Kuala Lumpur in the 1930s by a group of Englishmen who, seeking to amuse themselves in their own peculiar way, set out to create their own variation of the English public school tradition of a paperchase otherwise known as hare and hounds. This wayward group of eccentric expatriates lived in an old boarding house that served up meals of such dubious quality that the place became known as the Hash House. It naturally followed that our exuberant runners would call themselves the Hash House Harriers. Their founder, a man called A.S.Gispert, sadly was never to see the havoc he wreaked on an unsuspecting world through the incredible proliferation of his idle distraction. He was killed defending Singapore in February 1942. As a result of some typical bureaucratic officiousness the original Kualar Lumpur Hash House Harriers were required to set themselves up as a legal entity and to state the purpose of their organisation. As a result their charter of 1938 stated the following aims: • To promote physical fitness among our members • To get rid of weekend hangovers • To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it in beer • To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel. Revived after the war the Hash House Harriers became a worldwide phenomenon. These days there are more than 1,700 clubs on all continents of the world. Indonesia has more than its fair share of these clubs particularly in the Bandung area where groups of runners numbering in their thousands frolic through the countryside every week. The first Hash House Harriers club in Bali was founded in May 1977 by renowned birdwatcher, butterfly expert and legend in his own lunchtime, Victor “Nightjar” Mason. That first club, the Bali Hash House Harriers, continues to thrive, flourish and multiply. These days there are six clubs in Bali running on different days of the week attracting anything from 40 to 150 runners to each run. While there are thousands of hash clubs around the world most follow the traditional format of the original Kuala Lumpur hash. Every week a different run site is selected and the “Hares” set off with bags of shredded paper to set a trail through the countryside. Every ten yards or so they drop a handful of paper or chalk an arrow on the ground that the runners will follow later. Now and again they may play a little

In the Circle

Hashers come from all age groups and all walks of life from schoolchildren to company executives, from chicken sexers to royalty. It is a very communal activity and being a hasher means you have immediate access to a network of clubs and friends wherever you go. Everything is lighthearted with clubs being run by ‘mismanagement’ committees. Commercialism is shunned and anyone caught advertising or promoting themselves in any way is likely to find themselves sitting on a block of ice in the centre of the circle. Everyone is welcomed and treated equally. Bali club members include diplomats, hotel general managers and even an Indonesian high court judge but you wouldn’t know, they all look the same in tee shirt and shorts. Not only that, hashers have a tradition of giving each other hash names usually based on their background or something the person may have done during a run. It is all good fun but in fact the names have another purpose, they allow people to relax and be themselves without their professional lives catching up with them. You could be running along with Prince Harry and you wouldn’t know (although his red hair and freckles are a bit of a giveaway and I’m sure you might notice those 2 burly fellows running along with him with curly wires hanging our of their ears).

Bali Hash House Harriers 2 was formed in January 1992 and has run every Saturday since then starting at 4:30 in the afternoon. On 19th March 2011 the club will be holding its 1,000th run and there will be a weekend of celebrations with runs held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A celebratory party will be held on Saturday night. Everyone can take part and you don’t have to be fit to get started. Two runs are provided each week, a short one hour walk for the more leisurely minded and a longer one hour run for the more serious runner. We tend to follow well established paths and there are always plenty of people around to give advice or lend a hand to newcomers. Our oldest member is uncle Leong who will be 94 this year. Even at his age he rarely misses a run, he is noted for being the oldest active hasher in the world and for playing his trumpet in the circle. Visitors are always welcome and if you would like to take part in our celebratory weekend all you need is a T-shirt, a pair of shorts and some running shoes (no, flip flops will not do although one or two brave souls run in bare feet!). If you would like to come just contact our hash cash (the club treasurer) Mike Ward at 0813 3712 0882. You can email him at 1000@ or you can look us up on our website at http:// Phil Wilson

Every now and again there are large gatherings where many clubs come together to run. There is the EuroHash and the InterAmericas Hash and each year the Pan Indo Hash sees clubs come together from all over Indonesia. The largest of these gatherings is the ‘Interhash’ a world event held every 2 years where as many as 6,000 hashers from all over the world meet for a weekend of running and socialising. Rather like the Olympics there is always intense competition as different regions compete to win the honour of hosting an Interhash. Indonesia won its bid for the next Interhash which will be held at Borobudur during 2012. One thing we can be sure of – hashing will never become an olympic sport! It is, however, an excellent way of getting regular exercise and, probably far more importantly in the ever increasing pace of our modern world, a great way of clearing the mind and easing the stresses and strains of everyday life. For a hasher the idea of a running machine in a gymnasium, a television screen and a set of headphones is a rather strange notion somewhat akin to having a shower with your clothes on. After all who would want to be in a gymnasium when this is probably one of the most beautiful places on earth to run a hash. The

I’m a South African citizen, based in Cape Town, looking to relocate to Bali with my family. I’m a development practitioner, looking for work within the development sector in Bali. I have over 4 years experience working in the tough development sector in South Africa, and over four years experience as an educator (university lecturer), teaching on the subject of social and economic development. In addition, I have many years experience as a volunteer in development programs. My particular strengths are the ability to lead and conduct rigorous social research, on a variety of issues (including housing, employment, poverty, health, fair trade amongst others), with a focus on deepening the impact of development interventions. I am also a skilled writer with an avid interest in green issues. I am flexible enough, and skilled enough, to adapt to the other needs of development organizations too. I would love to bring my skills to Bali.
