Taman Rama, Dyatmika Claim Titles at BISIBT

5 time Para Olympian for the 3rd Bali Ocean Swim.

The fourth annual Bali International School Invitational Basketball Tournament took place this past weekend, and it turned out to be a fantastic and very well-attended event.

Kingsley Bulgarin AOM who has represented Australia at 5 Para Olympics is coming to Bali for the 3rd Bali Ocean Swim on Sunday, July 8 in the blue ribbon 10 km distance. Visually impaired Kingsley competed in five consecutive Summer Paralympics from 1984 to 2000, winning a total of five gold, eight silver, and six bronze medals.

Seven different schools visited and took part, including Sekolah Ciputra from Surabaya, and some thrilling basketball was played from Friday at 15:00 until Sunday at 15:30. BIS’ girls’ and boys’ teams did not fare as well as they had hoped, with the girls losing a tough two-point margin semifinal to Taman Rama, and the boys narrowly missing the semifinals on a tie-breaker due to a 4-point loss in the opener to eventual champions Taman Rama. Both boys’ and girls’ finals pitted Taman Rama vs Dyatmika. Dyatmika won handily in the girls’ division, but it took a late comeback and some strong defense for Taman Rama to prevail 31-27 in the thrilling conclusion of the boys’ division. The tournament served as a prelude to this Thursday’s BSSA senior final, when the BIS boys look to claim their first title since 2008, and the BIS girls hope to get it back from 2010. As Tournament Director Matt Mccormick summarised “Thank you to the sponsors Stiff Chilli & Sanur Deli and to all who attended the fourth annual BISIBT and showed your support for the players.” FINAL RESULTS – BISIBT 2012 Girls’ Division 1.

I Ketut Mertaadi: Director Eco Bali

I Ketut Mertaadi was born in Kerambitan village in the Ta b a n a n District of Bali. In 1986, Ketut earned his degree in a n i m a l husbandry at Bali’s Udayana university. He worked in pig farming for 12 years in Batam in the Riau Islands of Sumatra. In the late 1990s Ketut became interested in the environment and waste management because he found it interesting, a good business opportunity and wanted to make an important contribution to Bali. Ketut has now been working in waste management for 5 years. In 2006, he joined Eco Bali when the organization was still a volunteering initiative. Eco Bali was registered in 2010 under the name PT. Bumi Lestari Bali. How do you define waste? Most of what we call “waste” is actually a resource. Organic waste can be transformed into rich compost for your garden. Plastic, metal and glass can be recycled into other materials, or even transformed into beautiful objects. Can you give me some examples? We reutilize “waste” from garment factories that are in the form of very small shreds of fabrics that are usually thrown into landfill. We transform this material into valuable products such as pillow filler, puffs and dog mats. You can buy these at Bali Buddha in Kerobokan. We also utilize paper thrown away from offices and schools to create unique recycled paper products. How serious is the waste disposal problem in Bali? It is obviously very serious. Together with the growing number of buildings, traffic, water and energy availability, waste disposal is one of Bali’s most serious environmental problems. Just look at the beaches after a rain and at illegal dumping sites all over - by the sides of roads, at the bottom of ravines, on empty lands, in pristine rivers in the mountains, in beautiful rice terraces, in the canals of the inner city. The island’s collection system does not cover all areas and people are burning and littering everywhere. In most cases they are just not aware of the consequences of these practices. It is a matter of changing behaviors but at the same time providing a means for doing something about it. What services does Eco Bali offer? We concentrate on waste separation, disposal and recycling for households, offices, businesses, factories, villa complexes, boutique hotels and schools. We collect non-organic (recyclable and non-recyclable) including all kinds of plastics, paper, glass, cans, tins, beverage, milk and juice cartons. We also collect organic in special situations. We give customers and staff on-site training on how to use bins to separate waste and use the color coded disposal bags. We also set up composting systems.

Can you explain briefly how it works? When people call us, we ask them where they live and what type of service they need. We then come to the address, bring the bins and explain how and why we separate the rubbish, what could happen to the environment if we litter or burn the rubbish. Which of Eco Bali’s services is the most popular?

Definitely our regular weekly waste pick up, but we hope that the number of people willing to compost will increase because composting is a simple and easy solution for making use of organic waste.

NC/Ns/A-22 Feb 12

Is your waste collection service expensive? Not really. For households we charge only Rp528,000 for 6 months service and Rp1,012,000 for 12 months. Both types of services include an added one week bonus pick up, one set of medium stands and bags, staff training and reminders. We offer different prices for offices, factories, villa complexes, and other businesses, the price depending on need. What areas does Eco Bali service? Seseh, Canggu, Umalas, Kerobokan, Seminyak, Legian, Kuta, Jimbaran, Sanur, Renon, Ubud, Nusa Dua, Bukit and more to come. Are most of your customers foreigners? Yes, but there is an increasing number of Indonesians joining. What’s happens to the waste after you pick it up? We operate our own processing and recovery facility where waste is separated and sorted according to what category it falls under. Recyclables are sent to various distributors who take it to recycling plants, mostly in East Java. Nonrecyclables, a small fraction of the total waste, is sent to government landfills. Do you ever work with kids? Yes. We provide environmental education right where it counts - in Bali’s schools. In our “Adopt a School” program we spread information and increase awareness on waste management, waste segregation issues and environmental awareness among local school children. Those who would like to help can adopt a school by financing the cost of training students and teachers, and defraying the cost for bins and waste collection. Are you doing anything about Bali’s scourge of plastic garbage? Plastic bags are the most visible form of waste in Bali. You can see throwaway plastic everywhere in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some of the world’s governments have tried various ways to minimize the problem by imposing taxes or even outright bans on plastic bags. For our part, to slow the rampant use of plastic bags we have made an easy-to-carry, foldable and reusable “BRINGYOUR-OWN-BAG” (BYOB) shopping bag made of 100% cotton canvas. How may readers learn more about Eco Bali’s services?

WHY WAS ONEY ANWAR CHOSEN FROM 238 MILLION INDONESIANS TO STUDY AT AN ELITE SPORTS PROGRAM OVERSEAS? by Karen Elisabeth Donald THE BEGINNING Oney Anwar began riding waves on the discarded remains of a snapped westerner’s surfboard in his village of Lakey Peak, Sumbawa. By the age of seven he was determined to follow his quest to be the first Indonesian surfer on the International surf circuit along side Kelly Slater. As a child Oney possessed the kind of personality that allowed him to reach beyond comfort zones and follow his dreams. Now age 18 and living in Australia, Oney sometimes reflects on those early days. “I got into surfing when I was seven years old, he states, the first wave pushed me up that little beach break when it was a big day and I love it and I say I’m going to come surf every day after school. That’s what I did and I found out, surf is the best for me.” The youngest of twelve children, Oney grew up as part of a loving Muslim family and soon developed an infatuation with surfing thanks t o t h e encouragement of his older brother and devoted mother who would walk him down the beach in the heat of the day to practice. The area known as Lakai in Sumbawa was discovered by several intrepid surf explorers in the 80’s and was nothing but rice paddies during that time. Over the next few decades, many surf tourists visited the area and the village of Lakey Peak was born out of that. As Oney developed his surfing style on advanced level waves, many pro surfers arrived in his village from overseas and Oney made sure he was first to meet them with his accomplished spoken English and fun personality. COMING TO BALI Oney soon gravitated towards Bali and the young kid who’d enjoyed a relatively sheltered upbringing in Sumbawa, was suddenly in danger of squandering his talent. But he was fortunate enough to be mentored by his brother Gazlin and an American surf photographer who had good connections to the industry. Oney was soon sponsored by Rip Curl, an International privately owned sportswear manufacturer. Although many young Indonesian surfers are blessed with natural ability, Oney seemed to possess the additional drive required to transform talent into a bankable surfing act. Doug Warbrick, (Rip Curl owner and mentor to many of the companies athletes) secured Oney a unique position on the Rip Curl International youth development program and relocated him to the Gold Coast. “ He’s taken a greater interest in his education in Australia and is trying to get that balance of education and the surfing,” says Doug. “He seems determined to finish high school, get a pass, hopefully get Australian residency and to put those foundations in place before putting 100% focus into competitive surfing. “ LIFE ON THE GOLD COAST FOR AN INDONESIAN For the last four years Oney has lived with the McDougall family who he considers to be like his second family. He attends Palm Beach/Currumbin High School and enjoys surfing lessons with Mick Fanning’s personal coach, Phil McNamara. Phil explains “The school has a very sophisticated program, people sometimes look at school as the enemy of surfing but at PBC it’s the friend of surfing in a big way.”

stay focused on his dream. DOCUMENTING THE MAKING OF HISTORY Confirmation of Oney’s ability to achieve at an elite competitive level arrived at last year’s Dripping Wet Pro Junior, held in Sydney. After sneaking out of school for the comp, Oney eventually went on to win it and become the first ever Indonesian to win a major ASP pro junior event. The compelling intricacies of Oney’s against-the–odds story have not gone unnoticed and a bio movie which details his journey from an unassuming kid, reaching beyond struggles to the great hope of Indonesian surfing has been produced by myself and Jason Moon. For us, the life of a surfer was much more interesting than anything you can make up or illustrate with glossy surf images. Breaking away from the conventional style of surf film, we have approached the film from the perspective of a non-surfer, which has helped to give it the sort of depth and insight rarely seen in the surf movie genre. We hope to reach beyond the surfing community to a wider audience with this heart warming and inspirational story called Oney and the Seven Ghosts. The title refers to a dangerous river bore wave in Sumatra, which has claimed the lives of many villagers with its unbridled power. This endless barreling wave sweeps down the river and continues for 50 kilometres. HOPE FOR THE CHILDREN OF SUMBAWA

After 12 months working on the project I met Carlos who shares the dream of giving back to the community of Lakey Peak. 30-yearold Carlos Ferrandiz worked as a lawyer for the past 7 years but recently decided to quit his job, live in Indonesia and become totally devoted to his NGO and associated Harapan project by developing several collaborations with local schools and orphanages, teaching languages to children. The DESARROLLO COMPATIBLE NGO is formed by a group of doctors and lawyers who have been working voluntarily in social and humanitarian tasks for many years, both in Africa and Indonesia. Their goals are to help vulnerable and fragile people and communities to cover basic survival needs in nutrition and access to drinking water, improve health, education, basic infrastructure, promote coexistence among them in peace and freedom, respecting their cultures, beliefs and customs. Carlos owes much to his parents who taught him the importance of helping others, taking him from the age of six to help out with humanitarian work, particularly in soup kitchens and homes of the physically and mentally disabled. As a result Carlos decided to change the course of his life and finally stop thinking about money and his own interests. According to Carlos, there is nothing in the world that can make him happier than to make a child smile. THE HARAPAN PROJECT

Other talented Indonesian surfers have flirted with being a full time Indonesian surfer abroad without making solid statements on the international competitive arena. For Oney, recognition on a global stage is definitely the goal and he feels he can overcome some of the obstacles that have prevented other Indonesian surfers from competing abroad. “When they go away, they seem to get really lost,” says professional surfer Koby Abberton. “For Oney to start traveling and move to Australia at such a young age, I think it’s going to do wonders for him.” AMBASSADOR Oney Anwar is undoubtedly the ambassador for the children of his village; they follow in his footsteps and continue to be snapped up by the surf industry each year. Could Oney really make a change to his community by following his dream to be the first Indonesian on the World Circuit Tour? Oney had the drive to push out of that comfort zone to where he is now and if he translates that energy with his surfing there’s no doubt he’s got a very good chance of being the very first Indonesian surfer in recent history to be on the tour. Some kids have the talent but not the discipline or the discipline and not the talent where at the moment, Oney has got it all and that’s what he has to hold on to and nurture to

of the few hotels that exist in the area and books to learn. To his surprise Carlos found the whole population of the closest village turned up, about 150 people including children, parents and even grandparents. At that moment, the Harapan Project was born. THE NEEDS OF INDONESIA Indonesia is a country that has been seriously affected economically and socially during the latest years by the constant natural disasters it has suffered (earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, typhoons, etc.) Natural disasters are a constant in the history of Indonesia and the lives of local people. Also, the country’s economic crisis has affected millions of workers resulting in thousands of children forced to leave school and go to work. Child labor is a major problem in Indonesia, at least 2.3 million children aged 10 to 14 years and 3.8 million aged 15 to 18 years are working to help their families. Sumbawa belongs to the Republic of Indonesia and is situated three islands away from the island of Bali. Sumbawa Island is strikingly different from Bali. Life in Bali is developed economically because thousands of tourists from all over the world arrive at the airport every day. Yet Sumbawa, despite being much larger than Bali (Bali: 5,700 km2, Sumbawa: 15,448 km2), only receives a few tourists a week. The people of Sumbawa don’t know how to exploit its tourism, which leaves them living in extreme poverty. EDUCATION IN SUMBAWA Despite having a literacy rate of 91%, school failure in Indonesia is at a 50% dropout for a basic education that lasts six years. In addition, education in Indonesia is of very low quality, with teachers having no university degrees or any preparation for teaching. The Indonesian teaching system has no technical or professional content, so the children’s success in professional opportunities is absolutely non-existent. Many school-aged children are not attending school regularly and don’t go to school because they are doing inappropriate tasks such as agriculture, trade assistants, shoe cleaning, etc. According to teachers, many parents showed little interest in their children attending school and either by necessity or apathy they prefer them to help with household chores, in the case of girls, or cooperate in the tasks of the field in the case of boys.

HARAPAN EDUCATION CENTRE Given the obvious educational deficiencies mentioned above, DESARROLLO COMPATIBLE has planned a socio- educational centre with the aim of improving the living conditions of local population, improving educational opportunities for the 2,400 children in the Hu’u population, strengthening the Indonesian teachers’ training abilities and improving educational opportunities for adults. The socio-educational centre will be complementary to the Indonesian school, working at all times in conjunction with the Indonesian school as an educational partner. Although the focus of the centre’s work is undoubtedly the education of their school-aged population, it will also provide social, medical and health activities, through an individual monitoring of all families in the Hu’u population. Once rated, they will perform the appropriate vaccinations through the skills of DESARROLLO COMPATIBLE doctors. Also, there will be periodic medical monitoring of the local population and appropriate medical treatment properly controlled by professionals.

One day in Sumbawa a boy approached Carlos wanting to communicate using the Indonesian language (he only spoke a few words of English). This surprised Carlos greatly because it’s the only language to communicate with tourists on the island. Carlos wanted the next generation to take advantage of the economic resource that tourism could bring so he told him the next day he was going to teach English, and that he should tell his friends to come to the class. The next day he went to the meeting place, together with a blackboard he borrowed from one

The Big Year In America the sport of ‘bird watching’ is called ‘birding’. In this very unusual and highly entertaining comedy, three men, from different walks of life, each take a year off to enter a competition called ‘The Big Year’. All of the competitors compete to see who can spot the most different species of birds in one year. This is a sport for ‘gentlemen’, and truth is of the upmost importance. When it is suspected that one of the competitors may not be playing honestly, what was friendly rivalry turns into a free-for-all fight. The movie is shot in Nature Parks and Wildlife Reserves all across America, from the mountains of Alaska to the everglades of Florida. Director David Frankel makes the most of these spectacular locations, while, comedians Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Jack Black, all give subdued yet funny performances. And, of course, there are all these quite magnificent birds. The Flowers of War This Chinese movie depicts a series of extraordinary events which occurred during the Japanese invasion of China in 1937. A very dissipated American mortician arrives at a Catholic church in Nanjing to prepare a dead priest for burial. However, the rapid approach of the Japanese army ensures that the mortician has to remain trapped in the church. He disguises himself as the departed priest to protect a group of convent girls, and a party of prostitutes, who have also taken up shelter in the church. Made in a traditional narrative film style, director Yimou Zhang provides lots of gripping suspense, and, he has a great story to tell, which he presents awfully well. Christian Bale plays the mortician, and he gets good support from a troupe of Chinese actresses. Take Shelter A family man living in a small town in Ohio is plagued by terrifying dreams. Fearing that he might be developing schizophrenia, like his mother, who is committed to a sanitarium, he keeps the knowledge of these dreams from his wife. However, much to the ridicule of the small town, he obsessively starts building an underground storm shelter in his backyard. Director Jeff Nichols creates a fascinating psychological drama, which is also concerned with dark visions and precognition. Michael Shannon is brilliant as the neurotic man. Happy Feet, Two Producer and director George Miller makes a marvelous sequel to his really wonderful 2006 computer-animated musical cartoon ‘Happy Feet’. There is not much plot in this new cartoon, except that some penguins must rescue a lot of other penguins from an Antarctica inlet which has been enclosed by a huge iceberg. The cartoon is actually driven by the characters, and they are all delightful and charming. The production numbers of singing and dancing penguins are just terrific. Among many, Elijah Wood, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, and Sofia Vergara, provide the voices. The Rum Diary A dissolute and failing New York novelist takes a job as a journalist with a small newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1960. He is assigned to seek out corruption all over the island, and he does that quite successfully. But, that is about as much as the movie has to say. Director Bruce Robinson gives his movie plenty of sleazy atmosphere, while, with his flashy performance, Johnny Depp also contributes rather well to the general air of decadence. Still, as the movie is based on an unpublished novel by Hunter S. Thompson, as you would expect, there are plenty of references to alcohol and narcotics. In fact, the most amusing scene in the entire movie is when Depp’s Hunter S. Thompson-like character has his first encounter with a highly illicit drug.

Diary by Mr. Robet

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas Those two funny guys, Harold and Kumar, who went to ‘White Castle’ and overdosed on hamburgers, have lots of more adventures when they have to scour New York City on Christmas Eve, looking for a particular Christmas Tree. This is another movie which abounds with drug related humor. In this case, the funniest scene is when Harold and Kumar are ‘roofied’ at a party, and the movie turns into clay pixilated-animation for a couple of minutes. Alas, the movie has hit the shelves well after the holiday season. Why not buy it now, and save it up for next Christmas? The movie is a lot of fun! Alvin and The Chipmunks, Chipwrecked While parasailing, Alvin and The Chipmunks are blown away from a luxury cruise-liner, and they all wash up on a deserted tropical island, where they have to await rescue. I found this sequel of a sequel to be incredibly inane and trite, but, I am told that very young children cannot get enough of it. If you thought Lady Gaga was bad enough, just wait until you see Alvin and The Chipmunks, and The Chipettes, slay some of her more popular songs. The Muppets When The Muppets learn that an evil businessman wants to purchase their abandoned TV studio, and pull it down to drill for oil, contractual clauses stipulate that they must come up with $US10,000,000 to keep the studio for themselves. In good old-fashioned Hollywood style, The Muppets decide to ‘put on a show’. The last half-hour of the movie, which is their Fundraising TV Special, is a barrel of laughs. But, the first hour is tedious. It is full of dreary performers, singing dreary songs and making very dreary wisecracks.

Mr. Robet’s Best Buys The Descendants The wife of a Hawaiian businessman is injured in a bad motorboat accident. The Artist With the advent of ‘talkies’ a ‘silent’ movie star finds he could be redundant. The Big Year Three men each take a year off to enter into a big bird watching competition. The Flowers of War During the Sino-Japanese war a mortician tries to protect a group of women. Take Shelter A family man living in a small town in Ohio is plagued by terrifying dreams. Happy Feet, Two A troop of penguins must rescue some others trapped in an Antarctica inlet. Dolphin Tale A young boy finds a Dolphin washed up on a beach and caught in a crab net. We Bought A Zoo After the death of his wife, a freelance journalist buys a dilapidated old Zoo. The Rum Diary A dissolute and failing novelist takes a job with a newspaper in Puerto Rico. A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas Harold and Kumar have lots of adventures while obtaining a Christmas Tree.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

I’ve just received an invitation to a Balinese wedding ceremony – help me decipher it please!

Trust our experience to manage your goods

Traditionally, Balinese would invite each other to ceremonies which concern humans (manusa yadnya) by way of a food basket featuring sate and spicy lawar. However, somewhere along the way, this lost favour and cards are the new norm – and the flashier the better. The thick, glossy cardboard invite you receive will probably be wrapped in plastic, almost definitely feature pics of the happy couple, painstakingly spray brushed, hyper-Photoshopped (it falls into the same verb category as ‘Googled’) pics, defining a fantasy ‘happy couple forever’ world of their dreams. The title on the front will probably read ‘Pawiwahan lan Mapandes’, which means ‘Wedding and tooth filing ceremony’. Pawiwahan means ‘wedding’ and Mapandes, also known as Masangih or Matatah means ‘tooth filing’. The inside pages will feature the names of the people involved, including family members who will have their teeth filed on the same merry day. Next to the names of everyone – including the parents, if you’re really lucky – will be their credentials and titles. Letters are very important to Balinese, as degrees are a relatively new (and expensive) thing to most – and it is considered necessary to let everyone know that you are university educated, for some reason. On the back will probably be a map which should feature the basic landmarks to help you get there; so, the location should be pretty self-explanatory, however the time may not. The time stated will be hugely flexible, meaning that you can turn up any time after this. A word of warning, however, to those who wish to catch the actually traditional ceremony or the tooth filing – the invitations will be geared for locals and the ‘fun’ part is considered the reception which invariably starts late afternoon and goes till late – you will need to turn up in the morning around 9am. The invitation won’t tell you what to wear. Basically, for the reception you can wear smart casual. For the ceremony, respect tradition and don a sarong, sash and headdress (for the men), and a collared shirt or kebaya (for women). 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.

New Moon in Pisces marks the very beginning of this fortnight cycle and conjoins Neptune to set in motion a round of deep spirituality. The Sun in this compassionate and deeply understanding sign also for the next month brings the opportunity for spiritual advancement. Mercury moves into Aries at the end of the fortnight and meets with Uranus and then turns retrograde for three weeks and re-enters Pisces. As we move through the Neptune Pisces generation over the next 14 years there will be movement into the human heart and an expansion in its capacity and ability to forgive. The whole of humanity will feel a gradual or sudden opening in their telepathic, intuitive and empathic centers. What this will bring about is an alignment of the resonant fields of the individualized human heart. The feelings of separation and isolation will diminish as the barriers of self-suffering dissolve into a field of unification. The more quickly we learn to forgive and release the story lines, the more rapid will be the feeling of peace. During these years there will be much emphasis placed on the waters of our Planet and the healing of them. Choosing the negative side of this would mean avoidance through escapist strategies like drugs and alcohol. We now have however this incredibly transformative period of Pluto square Uranus (through to 2016) to discard our old behaviors, ideas and thinking and routing out the very reasons for any possible avoidance or the need to escape. NEW MOON 2 Pisces 42 February 22, 2012 06:36 a.m.

ARIES: This is such an exciting time for you. These years of massive and unprecedented change affect you directly as Uranus moves through your sign. What this will mean is an individualized thing and also depends on your personal chart, however it would be a great time to have a professional reading. This months Pisces flavor has everyone, including you feeling more deeply then usual. A little sensitivity is required to dodge the minefield of emotions. With Mars in Virgo you will be more inclined to be of service than run away from tender issues. You may wish to expose a little of your own vulnerability with appropriate people.

LIBRA: Venus in Aries in your polar opposite sign moves into Taurus by the end of the fortnight bringing some relief to current challenges. Relationship has been fraught with incongruent situations. The way will be smoothed as Venus moves into the practical and very tactile sign of Taurus. Basically, it’s time to make-up. To forgive and move on, unless you choose to hold a grudge, although this would be highly inadvisable. This is the opportunity to take your relationship to the next level of intimacy. Growing beyond the limited version of yourself and expanding out into your heart center will be a wonderful experience now.

TAURUS: Venus is in Aries until the end of the fortnight, at which time it moves into Taurus. What a lovely reunion you’ll have at that time. March is set to be the month of romance for you. As you are more at home in Water signs than Fire or Air, this month promises to bring some much needed inner calm and peace with it’s strong Pisces flavor. Be willing to share those deeper parts of yourself. The aspects of your personality that can align themselves with the needs of others effortlessly. You love to serve, to give and to share. It is an inherent part of your luscious nature. The pleasures one receives through giving are boundless.

SCORPIO: Pluto continues to move forward in Capricorn until mid-April. It then turns retrograde through to mid-September. It would be advisable to follow the old adage of “make hay while the sun shines”. Preparing yourself for transformation is a little like getting ready for a marathon race. In subtle ways now you can be growing your inner strength. Constantly being aware of who you are presenting to the World and checking to see if you are living in alignment with your own value system. Anything that doesn’t fit can be simply realigned. Find some easy techniques that work for you and use them.

GEMINI: Mercury in Pisces lends to the more dreamy and creative side of your mental processes. A great month to give free range to the poet in you. With a retrograde Mercury coming up you will get an extended period to indulge in your loftier ideas and to set aside time for meditation and introspection. You will for a moment feel overly enthusiastic as Mercury enters Aries before moving back into the Pisces zone. Allay the urge to be too hasty, as you will see that it is actually a bit of a false start and you’ve not yet completed your regeneration process of stillness. Allow the ideas to come, just don’t be too attached to outcomes.

SAGITTARIUS: There is a lovely opening to love coming your way. Whether this shows up as a new lover or resurgence in your current relationship or simply an expansion in your heart center and influencing all of your relationships, you can know that it will be a beautiful experience. Slowing down hasn’t been such a bad exercise. You are beginning to feel more solid, more grounded and steady and sure in your ways. As the North Node brings a sense of destiny you are more confident to make changes and to be about your soul’s business or pleasure. Counting your blessings is a very good practice now.

CANCER: This Pisces moon cycle is a good time for you to come into your emotional self and to clear out any old behaviors and to do some healing sessions. Rather than feel sorry for yourself or allow yourself to sink into depression it could be better to seek guidance from an outside source. Tune into your intuition when it comes to selecting teachers or practitioners and rely on your gut instinct, although a little research is also a good thing. This way you can tap into your discernment using both hemispheres of your brain. A good exercise in itself this fortnight. Allow your creativity to flow.

CAPRICORN: Saturn hovers at that auspicious 29 degree mark this fortnight and still in Libra for another few months so relationship is still a major topic and the area for restrictions and maturation. Often the former brings the later. It seems that the old status quo no longer works for you and your partner. Realize that some things don’t change overnight. This could be an ongoing theme over these next few years and will continue to bring you more and more into your true power. Power without manipulation is a beautiful thing and when it is directed from your intuition and higher guidance you are capable of great success.

LEO: The Sun in the watery realms of the Spiritual wanderer has you embarking on some internal adventures this fortnight. Although this is not a comfortable environment for you naturally, this time will find you more at home here than ever before. Each one of us will be deeply affected by this Neptune transiting through Pisces and for you it is easy to activate the kind, gentle and generous heart. One of the first to jump in and lend a hand when the occasion arises. Learning to live spontaneously is a quest well worth undertaking as things will chop and change dramatically over these coming years. VIRGO: The Sun in Pisces and the Full Moon in your sign brings that Pisces/Virgo polarity to the fore this fortnight. Moving between the intuitive and the mental, between heart and head. Truly being of service from the truth of your existence and trusting the Divine flow of life. Releasing the stress and taking the time to rest deeply and nurturing your body are all a part of the schedule for this coming month. A spiritual resurgence in taking place in the collective and within your own life. Avoid getting too bogged down in the details or you’ll miss the splendid spontaneous flow of being in the right place at the right time and its natural perfection.

AQUARIUS: There is a certain understanding that runs deep between Pisces and Aquarius and with that this very Piscean time continues to bring a sense of grace and ease to your life. Everything is given and if you allow the synchronic flow to guide you where it will and through implementing your discernment abilities, life appears to blossom. Your empathic abilities and your intuition are at an all time high. Take a little retreat from the everyday and voyage within. Learning to trust the voice of intuition is crucial to your peace of mind over the coming years. Develop the ability to tune into it effortlessly now. PISCES: As you settle into the Neptune Pisces era, you already get a sense of what is to come. A gracefulness has entered all areas of your life and you are feeling seen and now acknowledged for those attributes that once seemed unusual to others. People will now be magnetized to your sense of knowingness and may come to rely on your intuitive guidance. Remember to set firm boundaries for yourself or run the risk of being engulfed in the residue of emotional garbage. The first person on your list is always yourself. Take good care then and give yourself all the nurture you require to stay calm.

Stenden universityBali joint venture with STIE Triatma Mulya

Stenden University Bali continues scholarship program Giving outstanding Indonesian students a chance to achieve an international career in Hotel Management After a successful first year, Stenden University Bali continues the scholarship program for the coming academic year 2012/2013. The full or partial academic scholarship is open to outstanding Indonesian students to help reduce the financial burden. This scholarship gives students a chance to join the International Hotel Management program in Bali with a Double Bachelor’s degree upon graduation (Indonesian Sarjana Ekonomi and Dutch Bachelor of Business Administration). Stenden is the first international university in Bali to offer a Double Bachelor’s degree. From this moment on, students who meet all criteria can apply for the scholarship program starting in September 2012. Criteria To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants should be students in their last year of high school with exceptional study results and a strong motivation to study International Hotel Management. The scholarship can last for the entire period of their study, depending on the study results. When granted the full scholarship, the complete tuition fee including all study related costs, will be covered, counting up to USD 20,000 in savings over four years. This scholarship is for Indonesian students only. “With this initiative Stenden strives to make high quality, international education more accessible to Indonesian students. Our program, with its international scope and its strong focus on management throughout the curriculum, gives them the right foundation to start a successful national or international management career in the hospitality industry”, explains general manager Maureen van der Meché. International education With all subjects being taught in English by teachers from around the world, Stenden offers an international standard of education. Students come from all over the world to study International Hotel Management in Bali. It’s a colorful mix of nationalities with both Indonesian and international students coming from Australia, Switzerland, Sweden, The Netherlands, Germany , Bulgaria, Mexico, South Africa and South Korea , to name a few. This makes Stenden truly an international environment in which students can meet people from all over the world and learn about diversity of cultures. This multicultural experience is very useful for their future career as many graduates find a job abroad. Full scholarship student Zaneta Imam tells how she enjoys the international vibe at the campus: “It helps me to understand and be open minded about other cultures, different beliefs and customs. It will also be a benefit for my future career as a manager.” Stenden University Bali is part of a global network with campus sites in The Netherlands, South Africa, Qatar and Thailand. This provides opportunities to do part of the program at any of the other campus sites offering the identical curriculum of International Hotel Management. With the global industrial networks, students can also do their internship abroad. Career opportunities According to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), the hospitality industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, with Indonesia taking a lead. Bali, in particular, with its world class hotels, is a popular travel destination, which attracts more visitors every year. This makes Bali the perfect location in which to study International Hotel Management. “As the industry expands, graduates are working in a wider spectrum of positions than ever before. Not only hotels, resorts or convention centers, but also retail, banks or consultancy agencies await the skills from graduates of Hotel Management studies, ” according to Maureen van der Meché. Information Stenden University Bali has four intakes per year for the International Hotel Management program. This scholarship offer however aims for students who want to enroll in September or November. The application deadline for the scholarship program is dated June 22, 2012. More information can be found at www.stenden. com/bali or on Facebook ( Students who are interested can also send an email to The Stenden team is planning a road trip in February across Indonesia to provide students and their parents with a chance to have a personal conversation with one of the Stenden staff members about the scholarship and the content of the Bachelor program.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

That Man is Back! The man is Warren Mead, a Perth celebrity restaurateur for many decades. A few years ago he had a short flirtation with Karma at their Jimbaran restaurant but this man has been doing it his way for too long to work within a structured organisation. He is now doing it his own way, once more! Warren Mead’s Perth restaurants were each ‘the place to go’ as each one came and went; The Oyster Bar, Black Tom’s and Mosman Bay amongst them. His list of wives has almost been as impressive, now with wife no.6 in Bali, with baby no. 10 on the way. Warren Mead’s style in the kitchen is just as unique. Simplicity is the keynote, no descriptor more apt than the way he prepares fish, and has been doing so for the past 30 years. Fresh fish selected at the morning’s market are filleted at the restaurant, dipped in an egg wash to seal in the flavour, then lightly pan-fried in olive oil and butter, finishing with a drizzle of lemon and a touch of sea salt. No sauces to mask the flavour, you can actually taste the fish! Needless to say seafood is a major part of this menu. Starters include a Seafood Chowder, thick with the produce of the sea. Oysters have always featured in his restaurants and they do so here as well. You can have them natural or a favourite Aussie way, Kilpatrick [drizzled with tomato and worcestershire sauces, draped with shredded bacon and baked in the oven]. Then there is the Mead Special, oysters with smoked salmon, freshly chopped chives and cream. Smoked Salmon is served wrapped around stalks of asparagus drizzled with honey mustard dressing. Sashimi quality tuna is combined with avocado and chives in a refreshing salad. The small Squid Rings are amazingly tender and have an after taste with a bit of a bite having been dusted with flour and Cajun spices before being fried to a crisp and dabbled with Thai sweet chilli sauce. The King Prawns are also done the old Aussie way as Cutlets; split, flattened and crumbed before deep frying. There is also a Tasting Plate of entrées [for two persons]; slices of beef carpaccio with shaved cheese, sweet prawns fresh from the market [not from the freezer], small local scallops from Sumbawa, those crisp squid rings and the asparagus spears wrapped in smoked salmon with honey mustard dressing. The perfect starter!

Seafood continues as the headline of the mains. The Mahi-Mahi fillets are prepared as described above, and served with the famous Black Tom Mash [mashed potato combined with finely chopped onion, butter, cream and sea salt]. Tuna is just seared, the Sardine Fillets are grilled as is the fillet of Red Snapper. Where would a seafood restaurant be without the offer of simple Fish & Chips? The fish is snapper and is encased in a light beer batter. A Seafood Duo of snapper and king prawns are with a garlic sauce, and there is a Fish Curry, with rice, for a local touch.

Non-smoking Area : None. Meat dishes are also on the menu and they include all the standards; Australian Tenderloin Steak, Baby Back Pork Ribs and a Giant Hot Dog guaranteed to keep the kids amused. Steak Sandwiches are on every café and pub menu in Australia, here at Mead’s a variation is his Steak Burger, although the steak has been chopped in the kitchen, not arriving as a prepared pattie of unknown origin. Another Warren Mead special is the Individual Pie, all 400 grams of it! You choose the filling; Australian steak [even a Wagyu version], mixed seafood or chicken & vegetables. The thick base and cup is from puff pastry and the open pie is topped with mashed potato, the final baking done to order so a small waiting time is necessary. A great new addition to the menu is the Pot Roasted Chicken, local chickens seasoned and slow roasted in the oven for 3 hours, there are no short cuts in this place.

Pizzas are a popular lunch or mid-afternoon snack Hawaiian [ham, pineapple & cheese] is an unusual name for Australia’s favourite pizza, and it is on the menu here as is the essential Seafood Pizza [prawns, squid, snapper and clams]. The Mead named Italiano Volcano combines hot salami with chilli and oregano. There are also Gourmet Chicken and a Vegetarian Pizzas. Simple food, simple taste, and that is the difference…at Mead’s you actually can taste the fish rather than some overpowering sauce. The restaurant itself is large, open and fresh. The staff at Mead’s are both friendly and relaxed just like the big man himself and as you will be after dropping in for an hour or two….a stress de-tox! Enjoy it now before the toll road opens and the rest of Bali discovers this place!

22 February - 07 March, 2012

Update Tirta Ayu in East Bali is a magic place at which to start your day. Breakfast is, for me, just about the most important meal of the day. And while I am immediately attracted to exotic breakfasts on any menu I have to admit that the classic old Bacon & Eggs is very hard to beat! No one does it better than Tirta Ayu. For me eggs are best poached, but with soft yolks and firm whites, the way they do them here, add some rashers of bacon without too much fat and nice juicy beef sausages and you have a breakfast royal! Most fitting as you are sitting in what was the King’s playground, overlooking the immaculate water gardens of Tirta Gangga, beyond are the green rice paddies with the island of Nusa Penida resting on the horizon. How could you find a better setting from which to start your day with that perfect breakfast [pictured]. Other breakfast options include the classic Eastern Bali breakfast of Nasi Lemak of rice cooked in coconut milk, served with omelette strips and fried fish scattered with those spicy ‘hearing’ [dried and smoked flattened sprats]. More International are the Pancakes with maple syrup, or a Yoghurt Pancake for the health conscious.

Tapping Shoes is the 3rd restaurant in the complex that is the Potato Head Beach Club

in Kerobokan. Open only for dinner, it is above the main Potato Head restaurant, overlooking beach and ocean. It is the up-market dining option here, offering a choice of 5 or 6 course Degustation Menu at Rp. 900,000 or 1,100,000 ++, respectively. The full menu begins with Foie Gras flavoured with sauterne wine and mango, and pain d’espices. The Homard Salad is lobster meat combined with tabouli and capsicum mousse in a gazpacho sauce and a touch of balsamic. St. Jacques are scallops and for the main a choice of Catch of the Day, Tenderloin of Beef, Oven-roasted Lamb or Roasted Barberie Duck. The dessert is a house special. There is also a small a la carte menu but it changes daily.

Crazy Kangaroo is meant to change the night life style of Candi Dasa. It is on the site


of the ill fated Kubu, but the old place has had more than just a face lift. In fact it represents a whole new Candi Dasa with its stone walks between white pebbles around landscaped water gardens leading to the two wantilans that house the dining areas and very long bar, and a rear stage for live music performance. The large modern kitchen in glass suggests that no cost has been spared for this impressive set up. First impression from the unusual name is that the Australians must have arrived [they are a surprisingly rare commodity along Bali’s east coast], but this is not the case as the project is from the ‘over the road’ Pondok Bambu, a 100% Dutch operation. Crazy Kangaroo is due to open March 1.

Dreamy Coffees, Gormet Deli and Delicious Dining - Morning to Night

Warung Pulau Kelapa seems to be the most successful newcomer to the Sanggingan

Petitenget - 730 418 Jimbaran Corner 704 335

stretch of new restaurants, warungs and cafes that opened last year in Ubud, already boasting a steady regular clientele. It is quite an amazing place, with extensive parking behind its joglo-style wooden house, In the front garden are a number of small private 4 chair tables under individual gazebos. Cuisine is mostly from Eastern Java, the menu well illustrated, and the prices incredibly cheap for such a lavish warung. The Rujak is Madura style, the Soto Ayam from Central Java and the Tempe Penyet of Eastern Java. Opor Ayam is one Indonesian dish that is wonderful when prepared correctly, chicken breast meat simmered in coconut milk with lime, coriander, galangal, lemongrass and ginger…ambrosial! Ayam Bumbu Rujak is also prepared in coconut milk but with chilli and other spices. The Udang Goreng Special is plump prawns [two different sized serves] with sambal dadakan [red chillies]. Ikan Goreng is freshwater fish covered with a thick chilli sauce whilst Ikan Sambal Woku is only for the bravest! It is steamed and fried baby tuna in the style of Manado, the green chilli giving it plenty of fire! Fried rice with basil and the many other rice and noodle combination dishes with beef or chicken are all in the east Javanese tradition.

Bamboo is an apt name as the restaurant is constructed purely of same. The giant open

structure looks back along Jln. Kartika Plaza, and welcomes all. Bamboo is unashamedly a tourist restaurant, attempting to cater for the tourist hoards residing along this strip of large hotels, Australian [Perth] owned and managed it caters for its own. Perth identity Warren Mead had a hand in the menu setup and the kitchen style, his touch with the pan-fried fish unmistakable. The starters are predominately seafood, oysters can be natural or Kilpatrick [an Australian favourite], sashimi grade Tuna is combined with avocado and freshly chopped chives in a refreshing salad, Smoked Salmon is with asparagus and a honey mustard dressing, King Prawn Cutlets are with garlic and chilli. Mains also include many seafood offerings as well as Australian steaks [tenderloin on its own or as the American Surf & Turf with prawns], the inevitable Pork Baby Back Ribs and some wow Individual Meat Pies [400 grams] beef, seafood or chicken and vegetable. Bamboo offers quite a contrast to the mostly local alternatives along this road, and at reasonable prices.

Cafe Moka has opened its latest outlet, this time on The ByPass Ngurah Rai, Sanur. Small and neat, the display and no-smoking air-conditioned area is inside, with a front covered terrace for the smokers and fresh air addicts! On offer are all the usual pastries [croissants, Danish rolls, grape tarts and apple chausson amongst them], breads, cakes, and a range of Quiche [including pumpkin and broccoli, tomato and onion and spinach and feta apart from the classic Lorraine]. Open from 7.30 in the morning for hot breakfasts called an American but no hash browns, with Omelettes the way they should be in that you select your own three favourite fillings [more if you want but at an extra charge]. For omelettes, sandwiches and pizzas, everyone has their own personal pet combinations and no one wants to be forced to stick to a rigid recipe. Very pleased to see that Cafe Moka now serves Illy coffee, in future I can include a coffee with my visits. Nau-Mai is Candi Dasa’s newest restaurant, but it has been set up by an old friend. In the 1990’s Toke was the most popular restaurant in town, particularly amongst the expatriates who worked or lived in the area. Bendi was the jovial host at Toke and now his new modern restaurant with small swimming pool and lounge area, to complement the table dining, has opened to acclaim. Toke introduced Indian food to Candi Dasa many years ago, but not a sign of it at Nau-Mai, instead a general International mix starting with a touch of Central Europe; German Prawn and Potato Timbale with chives and bacon pieces and a hearty Goulash Soup. Mains include a Marinated and Grilled Chicken Leg, Chicken Parmigiana, Spare Ribs, Steaks and Lamb Chops, all those things the visiting tourist is looking for as well as a few local specials including Chilli Prawns and many other local dishes. Pencok Jagung Udang Bakar are grilled prawns with coconut milk sautéed sweet corn and carrots. Sari Segara Sambal Matah combines mixed seafood [fish, shrimps and squid] with Bali’s favourite sambal of lemongrass and green chilli, but this version also has Kaffir lime added. Nau-Mai is found at the entrance to Candi Dasa. Gerry Williams For more information see our website: NC/Ns/G-22 Feb. 12

Welcome Indonesia - Fremantle to Bali 2013 Ocean Race and Rally Announcement Soon “We did most things well in 2011 but hope to do a lot better in 2013. We are bending over backwards and concentrating our efforts to lift the numbers in 2013,” Bernie Kaaks - FSC Media Contact.

Remember it was a Western Australian yacht that took the America’s Cup away from Rhode Island for the first time in its history. The fastest racers can complete the journey within 7 days. The course does offer some challenges and is not for the faint hearted. The organisers welcome yachts from Indonesia and beyond and seek to make this a truly international event. With more and more Indonesians getting into sailing here is a chance to test your skills and have some fun. There is nothing better than people from different cultures getting together and sharing a common passion and of course having some fun along the way. It will be run according to the usual International Sailing Rules. The Ocean Rally

In a scoop for Bali Advertiser readers the Indonesian Government’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism ‘Welcome Indonesia’ promotion in conjunction with the Fremantle Sailing Club are set to announce the Fremantle to Bali 2013 Ocean Race and Rally. This is the second of a series of five mega events that will see Bali and Indonesia continue the push to be Asia’s premier sailing destination. There is nothing like it anywhere else in Asia. An International Sailing event that consists of a 1440 nautical mile Ocean Race and Rally starting in Australia and ending in Bali. The Fremantle Sailing Club (FSC) is wasting no time in getting preparations underway for next years Fremantle to Bali 2013 Ocean Race and Rally. Bernie Kaaks - Media Contact for Fremantle Sailing Club is hoping for a bigger turnout in 2013. “We did most things well in 2011 but hope to do a lot better in 2013. We are bending over backwards and concentrating our efforts to lift the numbers in 2013,“ said Bernie.

In 2011 this part of the event saw yachties have a lot of fun. The rules are less foreboding for the Rally than those applying to the Ocean Race. There was the infamous “kidnap” of some cardboard Garuda Airlines Air Hostesses from a FSC function. They were stowed away on board one of the Western Australian boats and ended up in Bali. The ransom wasn’t paid so they were handed back to the airline at the Gala Dinner held at the Sanur trophy night. On last reports they are back at work and happy. (You had to be there to understand this bit of frolic). To add to the joy there were photo and fishing competitions along the way. The ultimate insult was that one of the Rally yachts beat most of the racing yachts. Work it out, you get two yachties close to each other out on the water and if they are heading in the same direction you got a race, rally or no rally. 2011 Cultural Events - Fremantle Send Off Party and Bali Welcome

Bali Race Committee Established Even though it is early days a FSC Bali Race Committee has already been established. Some of the FSC’s most experienced ocean sailors are on the Committee and are hell bent on making next years event even better than the highly successful 2011 Race and Rally. The Committee members are Terry Baker, Bernie Kaaks, Kaye Risely, Ralph Newton and Margaret Cook. They are meeting with Indonesian Government officials in the next week to thrash out the final details. Invitation to Compete - Start date is 4 May 2013 The first job on the list is to send an invitation out to all international sailors to come and join the fun. The scheduled start is 4 May 2013 from Fremantle Sailing Club at Fremantle Western Australia. Any queries can be directed to the FSC at and a dedicated website will be open soon. So if you’re up for something different head to Fremantle. Sail Australia’s Southern Coast For those currently cruising the Pacific heading west it can be a very interesting detour to head south instead of using Darwin as a jump off point for Indonesia. Some years ago one British sailor friend sailed west from the Pacific Ocean to the southern Australian coast and got south easterlies all the way arriving in Fremantle safe and sound. From what I remember he said that he had a great sail along the bottom of Australia. Of course you need to do your homework about when the winds are from the south east in that part of the world because most of the time the winds are from the west and not very kind to skippers and their yachts. Last I heard though he got into some trouble off Madagascar and in a furious storm his yacht sank. He did survive to tell the story though. The Ocean Race The race is a long one, over 1440 nautical miles, and is very competitive with some very high tech Western Australian yachts competing.

Along with the grunt and grind of racing and rallying are the cultural events that seem to follow yachties every where they go. The FSC send off party for the Visit Indonesia - 2011 Fremantle to Bali Ocean Race and Rally held at the Fremantle Sailing Club was a fabulous social occasion. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism put the party on and were congratulated by most of those that attended. Balinese and Aussies swapped stories and enjoyed each others company in a relaxed setting. Speeches were full of introductions and toasts, entertainment was provided from Indonesian musicians, dancers from Aceh and even some passionate karaoke from some high placed Indonesians. The Cultural Gala dinner to welcome yachties to Bali was described by one ex pat as, “the biggest thing I have seen in Bali for a long time.” The Indonesian band was cooking and pretty , the dance floor was shaking. Well, the dance floor was the beach in front of the Sanur Beach Hotel. Party people were invited on stage to dance with traditional Balinese dancers. “It was hummin”. Kate from Kerobokan said, “Fabulous night. The food, the dancing, the atmosphere was one of a gala evening with smiles everywhere.”

So there are many good reasons to get down to the Fremantle Sailing Club next year and join in a fantastic international sailing event. Happy sailing.

More Gadgets Galore. In this issue I have another iPad accessory, several cameras including the most unique one I’ve ever seen, a cool telescope, a power mat for your car, and a light that will last 40,000 hours. Enjoy.

The classic camera brick has long been in need of a refresh, and Casio delivers a deft twist with this contorting 12-megapixel (1080p for video) shooter. A multitude of hinges enables it to fold, bend, hang from a hook, perch on a table and even flip its 3-inch screen for a well-aimed self-portrait. The price: $250


I used to think my Trapper Keeper binder was the epitome of high-tech learning. Heck, I’m pretty sure I even had a calculator that attached to the 3-ring bindings inside. But I might as well have been carrying around a chalkboard compared to what today’s kids get to tote around at school. ZooGue’s BinderPad case is really just another iPad-friendly polyester sleeve, with cutouts providing access to the display and hardware buttons. But it sets itself apart with an extra flap punched with 3 holes allowing it to clip-in to a 3-ring binder, not unlike my old calculator used to. Except that the iPad can be used for way more than just spelling out you-know-what. $29.99, available now in black or grey finishes. CANON POWERSHOT D10 This 12.1-megapixel point-andshoot snaps crisp and colorful images both on the ground and undersea. Waterproof up to 33 feet, it can also withstand everything from shocks to freezing temperatures, making it great for pools, beaches, and even ski slopes. $300.

CHEVY VOLT WITH POWERMAT INDUCTIVE CHARGING Inductive charging is pretty neat. An inductive charging pad built into your car is head-slapping, why-isn’t-thisstandard-on-every-model-in-theworld neat. Starting with the 2012 Volt, Powermat’s cordless charging pads will be standard, or an available option (details haven’t been hammered out). What might seem like a novelty now could provide even more futuristic cache to the Volt, and become as common industry-wide as power windows. Coming soon COBRA PHONETAG It seems simple enough: using your smartphone to keep track of valuable nearby items like your laptop bag or car keys. So why is no one’s done it before? The Cobra PhoneTag($60) does exactly that, using a Bluetooth connection between the included dongle and your iPhone, Android device, or BlackBerry to let you know if your tagged item has left the vicinity. It immediately sends you an email or text message with GPS coordinates when it happens, and works the other way around, too, letting you “ring” your smartphone from the PhoneTag. Just don’t place your phone in the bag that’s got the PhoneTag on it, or you’ll be completely screwed. US$60


Joby Obus

Casio’s pocket-size, 14.1-megapixel digicam offers the geotagging functionality of a cell-phone camera with all the quality of a great point-andshoot (10x optical zoom; plenty of scene modes). Its GPS not only lets you tag the exact location of your shots (even indoors!), but also helps you track where you are with built-in maps. $299.

Eighty-four LEDs inside a protective egg of blown and molded acrylic glass: The mobile, rechargeable Obus is not your standard lamp. In fact, it’s two lights in one. When standing vertically on its base, it gives off an ambient glow similar to a traditional incandescent bulb. But when removed from its base, it produces a directed beam similar to that of a flashlight. A joint effort between photo-accessory company Joby, best known for the flexible GorillaPod tripod, and award-winning industrial designer Peter Stathis, Obus also points to a growing trend. Like speaker and headset producer Jawbone and Apple before that, Joby is a Bay Area firm merging high design with high tech. “We’re willing to take risks, to use more advanced materials and manufacturing methods,” says Joby’s CEO Forrest Baringer-Jones. “It’s very American and very West Coast.” CELESTRON SKYPRODIGY Telescopes that automatically align to their target might seem like they’d bring stargazing to the masses—no more tinkering!—but their reach is somewhat stunted by astronomical price tags and wait times (it can take 10 minutes for them to align themselves). The $700 automatically aligning Celestron SkyProdigy 130 costs half as much as the competition, and zeroes in on its target celestial body in just three minutes. The secret: An onboard camera that detects where in the sky the scope is pointed.

Designed to last for 40,000 hours, or almost 25 years, this LED lamp becomes a flashlight when detached from its base. US$200

Being a mother on Bali, and having a girl under a year been born on Bali - my second round of motherhood, with the first round being a boy now 13, it is vastly noticeable to me how Bali has exploded with children oriented choices within the past fifteen years. It has in three words become a ‘kid friendly place’ - and thank goodness for that! All About Kids will explore all avenues offered to the younger members of our lives, from babies to teenagers and in between. In the coming months this column will showcase the best that Bali has from activities to retail selections, from the arts to sensible medical tips. All About Kids, is in a nutshell, all about them! Massaging when on Bali is a popular down time as it is so reasonably priced and of superlative quality. Did you know that many places offer kids - even baby - massages? So, if you feel like indulging, then take your little ones along and book them right in along side you - or drop them off to give yourself an hour or so to do what you want. Mentioned below are a few places for you to try out with, and to introduce our younger family members to the delights of body treatments too. It is surprising how quickly, quietly and well children take to pampering - much to parents’ delight. KARMA BEACH SEA SPA TENT This amazing venue of very recently opened Karma Beach, on the beach at Batu Belig, is absolutely ‘the’ introduction to a spa experience on Bali for children of any age, in its casual but supremely professional ‘Sea Spa Tent’.

MONEY MATTERS by Colin Bloodworth

ACTION TIME FOR PENSIONERS (PARTICULARLY BRITS) - And anyone else who hopes to retire one day! My last article on pensions drew a response from a reader who is among a group of over two hundred British retirees living in Bali who are affected by a curiously British form of discrimination. The issue he raised highlights the plight of this group but the wider implications should be of concern to all pensioners and anyone who plans to retire one day. But first let’s take a look at this particular issue. Imagine you are British and decided to move to Bali when you retired in the late 70’s. If you had faithfully paid all your National Insurance contributions you would have been entitled then to an income of around GBP 10 per week. But that is the amount you would still be receiving today, now just the equivalent of around Rp.140,000 a week or Rp.600,000 a month. The same would apply had you moved to any one of over 120 countries. Yet had you moved to countries as diverse as the US, Barbados or Spain which are not on the list you would now be enjoying the current UK based pension of GBP 102.15 per week.

income would be required to provide an acceptable standard of living in retirement.

The ideal objective is to accumulate sufficient assets to ensure that the return on investments is significantly higher than the income being drawn so that the capital value continues to grow. HOW CAN THIS BE ACHIEVED? The situation is eased if you can expect at least one source of regular income in retirement such as a state pension (preferably unfrozen!), and ideally an occupational pension related to final salary (although unlikely if you have worked overseas most of your life). If you have cash that you can turn into an annuity this would guarantee you a fixed income for life.


All the above provide the comfort of a regular income. But they also have one thing in common. They die with you, or there may be only limited provision for a surviving spouse.

They actually represent no more than 4% of approximately 12 million pensioners but successive governments have steadfastly resisted bringing them into line on the grounds of cost. The issue has been brought to the courts but while they have acknowledged the injustice they have concluded this is a political issue and not a judicial one.


Let’s say you determine you can live comfortably on a pension of US$3,000 a month in today’s money. Assuming an annual return on assets of 5% (close to current annuity rates at 65) you would need to have income-generating assets of $720,000 to produce this monthly income. You would then need to revise both the $3,000 and the $720,000 upwards each year in line with inflation until the year you retire. Even then at some point after retirement you will have to start dipping into your capital (not possible with an annuity) to preserve your monthly purchasing power. If you have unexpected large expenses such as medical care you could see your capital diminishing at an alarming rate.

Had you retired to Australia you would suffer the same frozen pension as in Indonesia but at least the government there would provide some additional support rather than allow you to descend into abject poverty. Understandably this is a sore point in Australia as around a quarter of a million UK pensioners affected by the policy worldwide live there.

Under regulation 3 of the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Regulations British pensioners who retire to any one of over 120 countries, including many in the Commonwealth, have their rightful state pension frozen. Meanwhile, those who retire to other countries have their pension uprated annually, just as though they never left the UK. This curious policy currently affects the lives of over half a million British pensioners.

Bali Advertiser

C/Re/G-14 Dec. 11

To build up wealth that has the potential to grow and which will become part of your estate upon death you should be looking at the following: • One or more private offshore pension plans (investing in a wide range of assets such as stocks, bonds, gold and other commodities). • An offshore portfolio bond (again with a wide range of assets). • If you hold a frozen pension (not state) in the UK it may be possible to convert it to an approved QROPS which can provide a regular income and also become part of your estate upon death.

WHAT CAN AFFECTED PENSIONERS DO ABOUT IT? There is in fact an organization, the International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICBP) which has arranged an online petition that can be signed by going to the website: http. Also check out and A direct approach to the MP representing a person’s last constituency would also help to convey the message. I can also put you in touch with a representative of the group in Bali if you wish to become more directly involved or be updated on developments. A return to the UK is a solution in desperate cases. But it is not that easy for someone who has lived overseas for much of his working life. Many have a local spouse and even young families. Imagine if large numbers of such families decided to move to the UK. The fact is the country saves a lot of money when pensioners move overseas since the cost of social services, healthcare and long term care is likely to far exceed the cost of pensions. SHOULD OTHER NATIONALITIES BE CONCERNED? While the issue affects a relatively small group, the matter of a comfortable retirement or even just surviving in retirement affects all westerners. The position is a little different for most Asians where strong family support ensures the survival and care of the elderly, although even here things are changing and employers will need to adjust. The situation is more critical in the case of expatriates because many no longer contribute to state schemes and are unlikely to have any active occupational schemes. Even the latter cannot be relied upon; many companies are no longer able to sustain the crippling costs of such schemes. American Airlines, which has just entered bankruptcy, is proposing to abandon its pension scheme. Others are likely to follow. WHAT ARE THE SOLUTIONS?

• Real estate, investment property etc (valuable asset but beware of possible illiquidity and maintenance costs) C/BT/I-30 Nov 11

• Forestry products (trees, biofuels etc.) • Structured bank products (linked to financial markets but with capital guarantees). Typically take five years to maturity. • Short term asset-backed lending (funds that that pay high returns for loans to farmers, developers, law firms etc.) Many opportunities now exist in this area since banks have become reluctant to lend. It is important to diversify and not put all or most of one’s eggs in one basket. THE CALL FOR ACTION IS FOR EVERYONE While the headline theme has been the plight of British expatriates whose pensions have been unfairly frozen we all need to address the reality of a future that could be bleak without proper planning and early action. In Bangkok recently I was taken aback to see a westerner begging on the sidewalk alongside local beggars. I hope it was not a sign of things to come, but we have to accept that the days of counting on others to take care of us are disappearing. We have to take ownership of our own destinies.

This is a hearty vegetarian main course but non vegetarians will like it too. The portobello mushrooms have a satisfying meaty quality enhanced by thick noodles. If you don’t have white wine you can substitute stock with lemon juice for a different but still delicious flavor. Fresh herbs always give best taste. A very important ingredient is the onion jam, which can be made a day or two ahead. The recipe follows.

Pappardelle with Portobello Mushrooms Serves 6 Ingredients : - 2 Tbl. olive oil - 750 gr. portobello mushrooms, washed, stems discarded, and caps sliced 1/2cm thick - 1 Tbl. butter - 2 branches of fresh thyme - 1 Tbl. fresh sage, chopped - 1 tsp. fresh rosemary, chopped - 1 medium sized carrot, chopped - 1 cup shallots, peeled and cut into halves or quarters if large - salt and pepper to taste - 1 Tbl. tomato paste - 3 cloves of garlic, thickly sliced - 1 cups white wine - 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock - 1/2 cup onion jam (recipe follows) - 500 gr. pappardelle pasta

- 1 Tbl. water - salt and pepper to taste Directions for Onion Jam:

Melt the butter in a medium sized pot. When it’s hot add the sliced onions and cook until they are soft and a little bit browned. Add the milk, water, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring from time to time. Remove from the heat and cool. Whirl in the blender or use a blender on a stick until it is a jam like consistency. Directions for the Mushrooms: C/U/G-9 March 11

Heat the oil in a frying pan big enough to hold the mushrooms. When the oil is hot add the mushrooms and sauté until they are starting to brown, turning to brown each side. Add the salt and pepper, give it a good stir and remove from the heat. Set aside on a plate or in a bowl. Melt the butter in the frying pan over a medium flame. Lower the heat and add the thyme, sage, and rosemary and sauté until fragrant. Add the carrots, shallots, salt and pepper. Stir fry until the carrots and shallots are soft. Add the tomato paste and garlic and stir fry for 1 minute. Now add the wine or stock and lemon juice and turn up the heat cooking until the liquid is reduced in half. Add the cooked mushrooms and the stock and simmer for 20 minutes. If you plan on eating right away, put on a pot of water to boil for the noodles, adding 1 tsp. of salt. When the water is boiling cook the pasta according to the package directions. After cooking the mushroom mixture for 20 minutes add ½ cup of the onion jam to the mushrooms and stir well but gently. Turn off the heat. When the pasta is cooked and drained, you can either pile the noodles on a plate with the mushrooms on top or stir the pasta together with the mushrooms. Garnish with the yogurt and chives sprinkled over the top.

Garnish - 6 Tbl. yogurt or sour cream - 1/3 cup chives sliced on the diagonal

Buon appetit!

Ubud Writers and Readers Festival-How to Participate, How to Make it Happen! By Renee Melchert Thorpe There are myriad levels of devotion to the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, ranging from “did I miss it again this year?” to “OMYGOD, [Booker Prize winner] just autographed my chest!” This issues column is mostly for the uninitiated, but there might well be something here for the old hand. All are welcome! This year’s festival theme is, after all, This Earth of Humanity, or Bumi Manusia. Now, there is no typical festival goer, so varied is the array of interests and desires of readers and writers. Wanting to increase participation this year? Here are some tips from festival insiders. There are no real secrets to how to enjoy the festival, but it pays to know a few facts. Read on and never say that the UWRF does not promote heavily enough. First, know the dates. This year the festival starts on 3 October, with several workshops beginning on the 2nd of October or even earlier. The festival always ends on a Sunday with a blowout party open to the public - usually on the grounds of the marvelous Antonio Blanco Museum. Mark the night of October 7 if you wish to attend. Then, get information. In each issue of the Bali Advertiser Ubud section you’ll find out which writers are invited, get useful information about the literary world, and be reminded of why the festival matters. Next, subscribe to the newsletter on the beautiful website at Or, check the site often, as the list of invited writers begins to appear as the rainy season gives way to the dry. “Like” Ubudwritersfest on facebook, or add @ubudwritersfest to your twitter. Why it all matters. In the lean months after the 2002 Bali bomb, tourism-dependent business people got creative. Style maven, author, and cooking instructor, Janet de Neefe, dreamed of a literary festival anointed with Ubud’s magic. As she had hoped, large numbers of visitors ran back to Ubud. This was the sought-after independent traveller demographic: liberal spenders on spas, markets, hotels, drivers, and widespread Bali destinations. Janet and her restaurateur/sociologist husband, Ketut Suardana, began the Yayasan Mudra Swari Saraswati Foundation to foster greater literacy and act as the basis for the festivals to come. The foundation may not grab headlines, but through the festival, energy and funds support its cultural and educational programs. Esteemed Canadian writer Michael Ondaatje (The English Patient) said that for all the glory (he was the 2005 festival’s headliner), his favorite moment was meeting the dozens of Balinese children who took part in a massive book-writing project. Not least, the festival gives an international platform to local Indonesian writers, editors, and publishers. It would be difficult to catalog all the spin-offs, but suffice to say the literary communities of Bali and Indonesia have become energized as a direct result. Think of the festival as having four main facets. First there are individually ticketed workshops usually given by experienced writers, editors, performers or publishers. And, workshops in a large program exclusively for children and teens are highly popular. Adult writers serious about honing their craft, may find the perfect master class, a thorough course in editing, or simply the right inspiration for literary projects or goals. It’s not always a good idea to take on more than one workshop during the festival; they can be intense and are, well, WORK. Find the best one for your needs and give it your all. Then there are tightly scheduled writer discussions, spirited panels, one-on-one interviews, and topical debates. Access to these are ticketed by purchasing a day pass or a four-day pass Ubud’s tickets are priced very inexpensively when compared with admission fees to festivals such as, Sydney, Hong Kong and San Francisco. Well worth your money since UWRF is ranked as one of the top six writers festivals in the world. Once there, the venues - Neka Museum, Indus restaurant, or the Left Bank - hum with enthusiasm. All are within walking distance of each other in Sanggingan, (West Ubud). These events are justifiably popular and often filled. Many talks have a salon atmosphere, and once in a while, history is made. It’s where you hear the writers reveal themselves, debate, extrapolate, and riff against each other. Here’s where, after the session, you can get an author to sign their book or share your thoughts about literature on a one to one basis.

Third, are the many tantalizing literary lunches, dinners, cocktail events and teas. A seat at one can range up to just over a cool million rupiah, but they do sell out early because the food is first rate and the atmosphere is intimate and more than a touch glamorous. Up close, amidst tropical luxe, this is where Ubud charms the very best out of the featured speakers. Yes, there is wine at many. And, yes, a three-course lunch at, say, the Maya or the Four Seasons Sayan is well worth the price. Book early, online. The final facet is the performance lineup. Varying greatly each year, these include dramatic or comedic play readings or theatrical productions, (may have a separate admission fee). Some are musical events like a night of cutting edge hiphop, hot jazz, salsa dancing, or film. Most nighttime musical events are not ticketed, but the restaurants and clubs who host them hope you’ll spend a little cash to demonstrate support. One guaranteed hot spot is Casa Luna, epicenter of the festival fun. Nightly, during the big week, there is always a live band; and luminaries local and foreign celebrate or unwind. For food, there’s a temporary food court on Jalan Raya Sanggingan outside the Left Bank - snacks and meals from some of the best cafes in Ubud. Book launches. Hardworking writers, photographers and artists often plan a year ahead to release their latest book at the festival, when press and readers are in town. Venues for these book parties are some of Ubud’s finest restaurants and bars. While no one is under obligation, these free events are great opportunities to support regional writers and their publishers by buying a book hot off the presses.

It would be physically impossible to do everything at the festival, but this means every festivalgoer has the power to pick and choose. Clued-in strategizers check the website in August, when the comprehensive festival program is usually finalized and online. Veteran festivalgoers will usually tell beginners to be open to trying something new. It’s a surefire way to experience an unexpected delight. Volunteering. This work-for-a-4-day-pass system is no secret, with groups of Australians, Indonesians, and local expats pouncing on the call for volunteers - on the website in the next couple of months. Because this is an application system, and there is no promise of employment to all, there is a deadline. Volunteers must attend brief training and orientation meetings, since this requires DOING actual work during an assigned schedule; but it’s as close as it gets to a free ticket to the panels and interviews. Sponsoring. A business or an individual can become a sponsor at any of several levels of partnership with the festival. The unique image and goodwill created is hard to find or create elsewhere in the region and sponsorship can greatly accelerate a business’ positive exposure and branding.

If you work in tourism, or if you have some guests coming to visit, festival week is a great time to show off Bali’s culture capital. All of the first rate kecak, dance and wayang events continue as scheduled, but the village has a palpable excitement with all the extra events and a party atmosphere. Get some posters, brochures and programs from the festival office in August, and display them for your guests. Before the festival some veterans “read ahead.” Local authors’ work can often be found at shops like Gramedia, Ganesha, Periplus and eBooks. But always save a few rupiah for the festival bookstall - the one-stop shop, always near Indus, while the writers are in town. Stop by early in the festival for the best selection. One of the best ways to get in the mood for the festival is to explore what’s on at the Bar Luna (Ubud) Lit Club. Throughout the year, this hot spot café hosts musical, poetry, rap and writer events at regular times (Tuesday and Thursday evenings, usually at 7:30). Call 0361 971 832 for information. Expect to be entertained by some visiting talent, or gain inspiration from the night’s topic. If you don’t live in the Ubud area, consider booking a room during the festival for total immersion. After all, this festival is all about inclusion. From its inception, UWRF was a powerful catalyst that brought people together from all over - the sense of community and openness is part of why so many writers try to find ways of returning. See festival website for a great selection for all budgets. On a budget? This conclusion is for you. Indonesian citizens, understandably, receive a very large discount, making it affordable to see all the Indonesian luminaries (and international stars, too). For all, there are many free activities and it is certainly possible to do something every day of the festival without spending a rupiah. One of the most important events, Tribute Night, is free to the public and sets the theme of the festival week. Presenters, producers, and researchers work for months to create an informative, entertaining, multimedia evening dedicated to honor a creative genius. Every night there’s something festive to enjoy. Rub shoulders with visitors of all kinds while: listening to hilarious poetry slamming, dancing in the street, or (during some years) watching a new film under a starry sky. If you can’t get online, if you didn’t find a festival program in one of a hundred different brochure stacks around the island, simply show up in Ubud October 3 to 7 and ask: where’s the festival happening tonight?

UBUD MAIN STREET MADNESS After a long wait, the mess in Ubud’s main street between Jl Hanoman and the market looks like almost finished, with the whole road brick paved instead of bitumen. It feels wider, it seems like the traffic can flow more freely. But oops, no sidewalks. What gives? Did the road planners forget about all the Balinese people who use this area on their way to work or the market? Did they not notice the many tourists who wander down this road? Why make it harder and more dangerous for them? Bad for local businesses too. ‘WHAT IS GAMELAN?’ IN USA US performance group, Gamelan Sekar Jaya, established in N o r t h e r n California more than 35 years ago, is now learning one of the key concepts of Balinese music, from respected Master musician, Pak Dewa Berata. Cudamani co-Directors Pak Dewa and partner Emiko Susilo are their guest music directors this year, teaching dance, song and gamelan music to more than 20 US musicians and dancers. Pak Dewa’s value to the exchange – aside from his brilliance as musician and teacher - is that he lives his belief that gamelan is more about community than music, so every musician must be willing to play any instrument or any role, when and as the group requires. The talented pair returns to Ubud in June. Email: cudamani@gmail. com. UBUD FITNESS MAKEOVER The new owners have begun a complete makeover of Ubud Fitness, including refurbished change rooms, new carpets and ceilings and, later this year, more hydraulic weights equipment and a sprung wooden floor for the squash court. Drop-in tourists, international ex-pats, local Balinese, Jakarta ex-pats, and short-stay visitor take full advantage of the popular aerobics, Pilates and salsa classes in Ubud’s only fully equipped, modern gym. So put at least one New Year’s resolution into action, then reward yourself with a freshly-prepared organic juice in their balcony café. E: T: 0361 974 804.

WORLD’S MOST ROMANTIC BAR? Just announced, a design contest for the world’s “Most Romantic Bar”, with prizes to the value of $US50,000. Of course, a Frenchman came up with the idea. Claude Chouinard, the man behind the restoration of the very popular, stylish Bridges Restaurant, says he was just chatting about what to do with the levels below the resto’s main “decking”, when the concept popped into his head. Potential contestants register by answering a series of questions online; five are selected by an illustrious Bali-based design panel, the competition closes in April. And if all goes to plan, the world’s most romantic bar will be open by September this year. More info at, you guessed it, BALISPIRIT “LEADING” FESTIVAL Heralded as “one of the world’s leading l i f e s t y l e festivals” by Sky TV Europe, BaliSpirit F e s t i v a l combines intense yoga with more than 100 daytime health and w e l l n e s s workshops and nighttime concerts.

Blast Fat From Your Body C/He/I-08 Feb 12

Weight problems represent one of the most common health issues of our time. Indeed this health problem has become so common and so serious that it affects almost half of the population in countries such as the USA and Australia.

and those in whom it is mild may be able to keep their excess weight stable for a long time. In all those suffering from this disorder, dieting, exercise, appetite-reducing drugs, laxatives, massage, baths, etc. may help to remove some weight however it is only temporary and will be rapidly regained as soon as the reducing regimen is relaxed. The reason is simply that none of these measures corrects the basic disorder. It has been found that all the different forms of excess weight problems in both sexes and at all ages can be due to the same underlying disorder. The variations of the disorder in each person were due to factors such as: inherited bodily constitution, and deficiencies of the endocrine glands such as the pituitary, the thyroid, the adrenals or the sex glands.

The concern with this is the many other health issues that being overweight brings with it. Being overweight is a direct cause of some of the most serious health conditions of our time, like heart disease, cancer and diabetes. It is therefore no surprise that the incidence of all of these diseases is on the rise. So how do you blast the fat from your body safely, effectively and for good? Well this article will list some of the things you can do to regain your slim and healthy body again. Check Your Thyroid Function Your thyroid gland controls your metabolism, and if your metabolism is slow you will easily put on excess body fat. Hypothyroidism is exceedingly common in our society and is behind many health problems, of which weight gain with excess body fat is one (also fatigue, loss of hair, dry scaly skin). The problem with hypothyroidism is that is it usually not diagnosed by your doctor. Why is that when he does a routine blood test to measure your thyroid hormones? Well you see that in order for your thyroid to make large amounts of healthy thyroid hormones it requires the mineral iodine, which is now largely deficient in our soils, and therefore in the foods that we eat. This creates a poorly functioning thyroid gland which cannot produce adequate thyroid hormones. The other huge problem for your poor old thyroid gland is the widespread use of fluorine and chlorine and bromine which are being used in our water and food. Why is this a problem you may be asking? You see these 3 elements are very closely related to iodine and share very similar properties, and they can attach to the same receptors in your cells. So since your body has either no or very little iodine, these other 3 chemicals may be used instead of iodine by your thyroid gland when it makes your all-important thyroid hormones. This results in thyroid hormones that do not function correctly in your body and are essentially inactive. Unfortunately the conventional blood tests that your doctor orders cannot tell the difference between a thyroid hormone with iodine which is normal and one with chorine, fluorine or bromine, which is inactive. It is therefore important to have your thyroid accurately assessed by a doctor that knows how to do this and who also knows how to correct any abnormality that may be detected. This alone can greatly improve your health and can lead to a significant weight reduction. Reset Your Hypothalamus Blast Away The Fat Your hypothalamus controls your appetite as it sends out signals which are responsible for your feelings of hunger and satisfaction. In earlier times fat reserves in the human body acted as a means of survival during famine. Things have changed now as human beings no longer undergo difficult conditions but the hypothalamus hasn’t evolved yet. Unfortunately problems with your hypothalamus are now quite common, leading to disturbances in how your body handles and stores fat. Anyone suffering from a disorder of this gland will get fat regardless of whether they eat excessively, normally or less than normal. A person who is free of the disorder will never get fat, even if he frequently overeats. People who have a severe disorder will store fat very rapidly, people with a moderate problem will gradually increase in weight

C/He/I-14 Dec 11

There is a way to reset your hypothalamus and to lose all this excess body fat and weight however: this method has been proven to be successful for many thousands of people and works to rapidly help you lose excess body fat from the places in your body where the fat has been abnormally stored, such as the hips, abdomen, thighs, arms, chest (men) and neck. By using a very low dose of a safe and natural hormone, and applying a specific low calorie diet, your body is forced into entering into a fat burning mode which it does on command from your hypothalamus. After at least 3 weeks on this protocol your hypothalamus is then “reset” so that it will no longer function abnormally hence allowing you to maintain your new healthy slim shape. It is possible to lose approximately 1 pound of excess weight (mainly fat) per day using this method and from my experience by combining this system with a complete whole body detoxification program, the resulting fat loss and body reshaping can be most impressive. If you would like any further information on any of the above methods of removing fat from your body you can email me at

Say What? C/He/I-22 Feb. 12

Question: When my wife and I got married 8 years ago, she was wrestling with a weight problem. She was probably 18 kilos overweight. We were both around 37 years old at the time, and I found this to be OK. The problem is that as soon as we married, she began putting on additional weight. I told her that I would help in anyway I could. Long story short, she has gained so much weight (approximately 99 kilos total), that it has destroyed our sex life. She does not have a medical condition causing it, except for (like most of modern society) a propensity for gaining weight. If she had a medical condition, I would be a lot more understanding.

Dr. ZZ: It takes two people to create a wall in a friendship and two to dismantle it. In order to maintain your friendship, you’re going to need to talk to your friend, and you would do well to do so from a gentle, non-accusatory position. Do your best to see your friend as “ignorant” rather than “arrogant” in this situation. After all, she could have had sex on the kitchen table, on the living room couch, or on the front doorstep. In her own misguided way -- perhaps because she was looking for a private, innocuous location -- she chose your son’s room without considering the potential ramifications. Poor choice, admittedly! But it could also have possibly been worse.

We have gone to counseling, and it has not helped. I am having a hard time understanding why she will not address the weight thing. If she were exercising and watching what she ate, I could have more sympathy, but she makes only token gestures and feeble attempts -- as if she is trying to pacify me -- and continues to put on weight. I feel strongly about holy matrimony and feel as if I have exhausted every possible venue. Otherwise, we have a good time together and are best friends. We just can’t seem to overcome this obstacle. Any advice would be most appreciated.

One of the best ways to express yourself around this or any other unpleasant circumstance is to use a script like the one below. As soon as you recognize the first stones of a wall being put into place between you and someone else, it’s time to halt its construction and to reduce the boulders to stepping-stones.

Dr. ZZ: Believe it or not, your wife does have a medical problem: she is eating herself to death and is at risk for all kinds of other medical complications. Studies show that many people who put on huge amounts of weight have biologically-based issues that cause them to keep eating beyond what is normal. Aggregated as well by poor food choices, they do not feel satiated like those of us with normal eating patterns. There may even be genetic, and of course psychological, factors. Once someone puts on the kind of weight your wife is carrying, losing it becomes extremely difficult. From what you say, she most likely weighs over 150 kilos. If you want to keep her alive and save the marriage, then this has to be a team effort. You need to eat the same foods, share the same eating habits, and participate in the same exercise routine, etc. as you expect her to. A consultation with a dietician and weight-loss specialist would be helpful. If all else fails, acupuncture and other Western medical options may be appropriate in a case like this. As much as I ordinarily discourage the allopathic route, medications, stomach staples, and gastric bypass surgery can be last resorts when a person’s weight actually presents a life threat. Question: My best friend is staying with me for a while until she can get her life together. She has been quite promiscuous, and last night she brought a man home and had sex with him in my house. The real kicker is that she did this in my eleven-year old son’s bed while my son was at his father’s for visitation. I am completely disgusted and want to burn his bed and make her buy a new one. The bigger problem is that I have no idea how to talk to her about this. Any advice?

3. Honor the person’s response. “Yeah sure” is different from “Not right now. Can it wait until later?” “No, I’m not interested in listening to your rants” means something else entirely. 4. Proceed with the following Parent Effectiveness Training format, filling in the various blanks: “When you do _____, I feel _____ ; and I want _____.” Alternatively, you may prefer to say: “When you do _____, I feel _____ ; and what I’m afraid what might happen is _____.” 5. At this point, the other person says “Thank you” or repeats what they heard you say (“What I’m hearing you say is _____”) and asks if there is anything else (“Is there more?”). 6. Your response is simply “Yes, thank you” or “No, thank you,” and you continue until you feel empty. 7. Then the other person goes through the above 6-step process if they care to.

The Real Cost!

I see a “dumped” one-night-stander about twice a week. They come to my office and the very first words they say are “I can’t believe I was so stupid”. Well I can. We are all slaves to our own need to be loved and wanted at some time in our lives, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Having said that, if you think you might end up finding comfort in the wrong place with the wrong body, carry a couple of condoms with you. They cost about Rp 20,000 a pack and you can get them pretty much anywhere these days. (Circle K has them and they are on every corner). The next thing they say to me is “test me for everything!” That’s when I turn around and say “How much can you afford?” The complete “one night stand” package can cost as much as 2.5 million rupiah (USD $250.00), and most health insurance companies do not cover for sexually transmitted diseases. That’s right, ouch! The breakdown goes something like this: (note that these are estimations and each clinic / lab may have different prices)

IN SICKNESS & IN HEALTH Ever been out on Saturday night (or any night if you are in paradise on holiday!) and felt particularly good about your self, and decided to add to that “feel good” mood by having a couple of drinks? You’re on such a high that you feel the world is your oyster, and just at that moment you notice a really good looker a few tables away, and guess what? He / she is looking right back at you! A few more drinks gives you the courage to strike up a conversation, and guess what? You get along really well and you seem to have a lot in common! As the night progresses you realize that you were made for each other: hands touch, arms touch, cheeks touch, hips touch, and guess what? Before long you’re taking each other home. The doors of the bedroom close and the rest is history, at least ‘til the next morning. You rustle up some breakfast together, and as you sip on coffee in the afterglow of romance and lust, you start to sense that this feeling that you are experiencing could be a one way call. Your new found friend hastily dresses, checking what seems to be a multitude of messages on the mobile phone, addressing his/her calendar to see where and when they are supposed to be. Where-ever they are supposed to be is not with you. A quick kiss on the cheek followed by “hey, I really enjoyed last night. We should get together again sometime. I’ll give you a call”, and they are gone. The call will never come; they don’t even have your number! So you sit in the aftermath of “the one night stand”.

Add to this the doctor’s fee and the cost of any necessary treatment. Some of the above tests may have to be repeated in several months time or if any symptoms become apparent. AIDS testing for example, should be repeated every 3 months for 6 months. And what about pregnancy ladies? Oops, did that slip your mind? If you were in the fertile time of your month (around fourteen days before your next expected cycle if your cycle is 28 days and regular) and you are not taking any contraception you’d better have an IUD (spiral) inserted straight away (this will prevent implantation of the embryo) or take the morning after pill. The local brand is Postinor II however you may need a doctor’s prescription for these. The regular contraceptive pill can be used taken as a mega dose (see our-publications/fact-sheet/emergency-contraception.cfm). This might make you feel a little ill, and will certainly mess with your cycle. If you suspect that a pregnancy could occur, don’t wait until you miss a period. Abortion is difficult to get in this country. And for the gentlemen that think pregnancy is of no concern to them think again. Unless you have had a vasectomy you are a likely candidate to get noosed by an opportunistic lady-of-the-night who may try to pin a pregnancy on you. I have seen more than several well-meaning blokes that have decided to do the right thing and support a child which they believe to be theirs, when actually they are not the father at all. So there you have it folks, sorry to be a wet blanket on your big night out but from where I sit that little rubber fifty cent rain-coat is looking pretty good! Foot note re article on tourism health and diving: In the tourist health info article it was mentioned that dive shops should be PADI registered, however it has been pointed out to me by those “in the know” (I am not a diver unfortunately) that SSI (Suba Schools International) and PADI are both recognized dive programs and have almost identical training programs, and are therefore both as good as other when choosing a dive company.

For all you secret admirers out there... Manik has specially designed Gift Certificates for your special Loved one’s with an exclusive Valentine’s Special!




As I write this on Valentine’s Day, with romantic notions of f e r t i l i t y, s p r i n g , abundance and the passion it inspires, I am reminded of nature. In particular the bounty of tender coloured petals and intoxicating perfumes carefully chosen and handed over to yielding lovers. And how many flowers are sold on Valentine’s Day? Well… lots! It is estimated that 110 million red roses are sold on this day in the US alone. But while the results are divine and heady, the environmental impact of the cut flower industry is heartbreaking. Water, chemicals and transport, to name a few, fill the carbon boot. Not sounding quite so romantic now! Perhaps some of us have lost sight of the intimacy such a romantic gift desires! While I can say that a delivery of a dozen red roses impulsively makes my heart go boom! The most romantic posy I was privileged to receive was from an admirer who had picked all the sweetest flowers he could find along the roadside on his trip from home to see me. That dear little bunch of weeds, truly did, make me absolutely giddy! THEN COMES MARRIAGE But who needs a bunch of flowers when you can have a whole tree! A recent announcement in Indonesia requests that all Muslim couples are now required to plant two trees before receiving their marriage permit. The religious affairs office is showing their support to the government’s tree planting programme, however, you are pretty much off the hook unless you live in the Sumatran Capital of Medan. Two seedlings are handed to the couple when they register and then these little trees of love must be planted in the couple’s home before the marriage permit is granted.

BUZZ By Monsoon Wanita 7 STEPS DOWN THE GREEN AISLE In planning a wedding here are a few suggestions to inspire you to be green and terribly chic. Pick one or two, OR be uncompromising; wear your pubes, frolic in the forest and drink wild nectar from flowers. 1. If you are exchanging rings, consider giving heirloom jewels or ethically mined and harvested diamonds, gold, gems and platinum. 2. Wear vintage gowns and suits or those made from eco-fabrics. 3. Use locally grown, pesticide free wildflowers and natural materials to decorate. 4. Serve food and beverages made from organic, locally harvested produce and vineyards. 5. If the wedding is to be indoors, rent out a building that is built to greener standards, or one that donates a percentage of profits to environmental causes. Consider a museum, an art gallery, botanical garden, historical home or cultural center for the reception. 6. As much as possible, consider how you can minimize the power requirements of your wedding by maximizing the use of natural lighting and cooling/heating options. 7. Instead of gifts, have your guests donate money to environmental or other causes that are important to the bride and groom. 8. If you are going to give your guests any party favors, make them eco-conscious. Candles made from soy, small planted seedlings, chocolate or other tasty morsel provided by a vendor that engages in conscious commerce.

We Are Here For You


ECO BLING And while diamonds might be a girl’s best friend they have been known to be a complete bitch to the environment and the poor blighters who mine them. Gold too.

Capital Capers A visit to Canberra is an unusual treat for your diarist. The Australian capital is an interesting city that is wholly artificial – the only imperatives that created it being the petty rivalries of Sydney and Melbourne over which was the country’s leading city and the fractious competition between the sovereign states that make up the Commonwealth of Australia – but is also a wonderful parable of Australia’s development. Its original design was American; its central purpose is bureaucracy; and its people are almost all individuals whose original homes were elsewhere. This visit, the first in six years, had a very special purpose. Three-day residence of the capital was also taken up by your diarist’s four-year-old granddaughter, a thoroughly delightful little Canadian who was visiting down under with her dad to meet her Australian family. Canberra’s a lovely place (no really – some people love it) but it’s very small. On a brief visit to the Qantas Club lounge there your diarist saw four people he knew. The visit also allowed time to renew acquaintance with several favourite Renaissance painters whose works are on show at the Australian National Gallery. Much of the work, a product of its time half a millennium ago, is of a devotional nature. But none of it is to be missed. It is all magnificent. There’s a Titian on show. But lovers of limericks will be disappointed to hear it is not the one with the ladder in it.

Business as Usual Local travel agents have a good point when they complain, as they have recently done, that Bali airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I is apparently in the business of gouging its customers. The surprise is that they have bothered to lodge a complaint, since the official Indonesian practice is to charge people an extortionate fee for products and services of very little value and limited utility. Two things in particular are exercising their minds. First, that there is no means of driving into and out of the airport to pick up or drop off visitors without paying for the dubious privilege of joining the chaotic traffic within. And second, that PT Angkasa Pura I – again in the fine tradition of feather-bedded public corporations everywhere – has done another monopoly deal, this time with a florist, PT Penata Sarana, and now charges a substantial fee for VIP welcome leis along with another hefty impost for welcome banners. Al Purwa, head of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA) in Bali, complains that the airport operator is unprofessional and arbitrary in its business practices. Few would argue with that assessment. He is a man whose optimism is boundless, however. He says he hopes that once the airport makeover is completed PT Angkasa Pura I will truly operate the air gateway to Bali to an international standard. Unfortunately, a contrary view seems less likely to disappoint: that nothing will change beyond an opportunistic grab for higher and higher charges for traffic access and parking among much else. Continuing porter problems and the taxi monopoly are among many issues the airport operator needs to address.

Island Hopping New Zealanders who can spare the money for all the getout-of-the-airport extras on arrival will soon be able to hop right over the Big Island – the one with all those kangaroos and koalas on it – and fly direct to Bali, for the first time since the 1990s. Air New Zealand is finalising arrangements for twice-weekly flights between Auckland and Bali between June and October with 228-seat Boeing 767s. Flight time is eight and a half hours compared with the 14 to 24 hours available on other carriers that fly services via Australia. The service is awaiting government and regulatory approval.

Sing Us a Song Ambassadors generally present a world view that, publicly anyway, is informed by the political directions received from their governments. This doesn’t mean they are dull bods.

Quite the reverse: people lucky enough to have working lives that bring them into contact with the servants of other national interests are richly rewarded by their fellowship and by countless opportunities to observe their dextrous diplomatic pirouettes when caught between a rock and a hard place. These days, your thoroughly modern major envoy is often to be found in the Blogosphere, and such is the case with the engagingly personable Mark Channing, HM’s ambassador to Indonesia and Timor-Leste. He recently blogged that suspicions that the British economy has been behaving for years in ways one might expect of a dead parrot are unfounded.

He’s quite right. Bits of it perform like a cuckoo on steroids. No, seriously – Channing cites one of Britain’s more engaging invisible exports. It’s an audible one. The Brits might no longer be ruling anything much (not even Scotland for long, perhaps) far less making widgets or grummets or whatever, but they do make music. He blogs: “Wherever in the world you go, and no more so than here, one hears British music – some of it new, some old. At the same time, one often also hears people comment that Britain ‘no longer makes things’. Yet, one of the reasons that the UK economy is one of the largest in the world is its success in ‘invisible’ areas like music ... British music remains a staggering money-spinner ... worth around US$6 billion each year, with UK artists accounting for almost 12 percent of global sales in 2010.” It’s good news week, it seems; though we should note that the singer-songwriter-producer Jonathan King – he is yet another fatally flawed genius on the music scene – who wrote the song of that title in 1965, was being satirical rather than promotional: it then says “someone dropped a bomb somewhere.” At least he was accurate. His other 1965 song, Everyone’s Gone to the Moon, sadly proved to be over-optimistic. Channing was in Bali last October – it was bomb memorial time – in part as part of Britain’s new push to re-engage fulsomely with Indonesia and the rest of Southeast Asia. We had a cuppa and a chat about that. Sometime, somewhere, soon, your diarist must find a forum in which to publish his unauthorised view of this clement – and long overdue – development.

A Lively Little Drop Sometimes, just when you think all is lost and that ennui has won the final battle, the heavens send you a little pearl to remind you – it’s always at the eleventh hour, dammit – that the forces of risible liberation are not yet quite beaten. One such occasion enlivened opportunistic affogatos for two recently taken at Grocer and Grind’s Jimbaran Corner premises (it’s where you turn off Jl Uluwatu to go to the fish cafés and – if you’re lucky enough to scrape through the defile – on to Karma, the Four Seasons, the Ayana and other plush places). Idling while awaiting our espresso and vanilla ice cream – that being what the totally decadent and irredeemably orgasmic affogato actually is – we perused the wine list. The prices always stun you, but that’s Bali. On this occasion, however, something else piqued the senses. The little pearl in question hid coyly among the red wines. It was a Naked Range product (that name itself prompts illicit thought) from Victoria, Australia. It was a pinot noir – something else the Diary regards as orgasmic – and the chaps at Grocer and Grind evidently agree. A lovely word transposition had listed it as Naked Duet Range pinot noir. They say a picture paints a thousand words. In this case, if we are to believe the Kama Sutra, five words paint 64 pictures. Only a handful of these depict activity that is not athletically difficult or downright dangerous.

Trying Hard We’re not sure whether this is actually real, since Australian bureaucrats like any others are not widely known for their public humour. But we’re not going to check, either, because this is too good to miss. A list of questions and answers on the Australian Tourism Commission website recently made it our way and included this little beauty from someone in the USA. Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you tell me where I can sell it in Australia? A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather. And we can’t resist this one either (unfortunately also from an American): Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? A: Depends how much you’ve been drinking.

the art of body Low Back Pain - Time to Fix It for Good! By Derek Smith, Personal Trainer now living in Bali Do you suffer from low back pain (LBP)? Maybe you experience one or more of the following: ● Chronic ache around the lumbar spine ● On and off recurring pain ● Episodes of “throwing out” the back ● Poor mobility resulting from painful movement What causes LBP? It is unfortunate that many people struggle for years with LBP. Perhaps you have seen your doctor only to be vaguely diagnosed with “generalized low back pain” and simply told to exercise. There may be a feeling that nothing can be done (i.e. that the back is permanently damaged) and a lack of knowledge of how to deal with the problem. Often people will try various types of treatment and experience relief but only to have the problem return within a few weeks. The problem with many treatments is that they target the SYMPTOMS but not the CAUSE of the pain. To truly begin correcting LBP there needs to be an understanding of what causes it. This understanding comes from research studies providing evidence-based knowledge.

C/He/G-30 Nov. 11

LBP will develop over time with mechanical dysfunction of the body. This means that if your body doesn’t work the way it should, little stresses will build up and lead to pain and injury. This is how a simple movement such as picking up a pencil off the floor can “throw out” the back. The pencil didn’t damage the back; it was just the breaking point after years of damage buildup. The spine is composed of intervertebral discs and bony vertebrae. When the lumbar spine loses its neutral curve and becomes flattened (flexed), the discs are pushed into a wedge shape. The mucous-like centre of the discs can gradually get “pushed” towards the rear. Pain will develop over time leading to a disc bulge and potentially a herniation. What Can Be Done? Correcting LBP begins by learning proper motion and motor patterns. That is, learning how to move properly and use your muscles properly. By using the body as efficiently as possible the lower back is able to start recovering more each day. Severe LBP can be drastically reduced over time and patients can sometimes avoid surgery by correcting body function. A professional assessment by a human movement professional (kinesiologist) can identify the cause of your LBP and design a customized exercise program to restore proper function. Two principals to learn and practice: 1. Maintaining a neutral spine - This is the safest and ideal position for your back and it is crucial to maintain this posture while performing movements such as squats. The word “neutral” refers to a position with a natural lordodic curve. It is also important to support a neutral spine at rest. For example, when sitting place a pillow behind the lower back. How do you find the neutral position? Start on the floor on all 4’s. Gently let the stomach and spine sink towards the floor. Next gently reverse the movement and arch the spine towards the ceiling. DO NOT force this movement. Lastly, return to a position in the middle between those two extremes. This is the neutral position. C/He/G-30 Nov. 11

2. Abdominal bracing - The abdominal muscles support the spine like guy-wires. It is very important to learn how to brace the abdominals in a neutral spine position before performing any movement or lift. Bracing refers to tightening the stomach muscles; not sucking in the belly but making the stomach strong and firm without holding your breath. Without this support the spine is unstable and easily injured. Once you learn how to brace, the muscles can be trained and improved. Endurance training of the abdominal muscles can have a profound effect on reducing LBP. To be clear, learning to brace the abs and training these muscles always occurs with a neutral spine, i.e. NO SIT-UPS! It is much safer to use exercises such as planking.

Water filters: Hygiene’s Silver Bullet By Bill Dalton

Enough. I wasn’t going to read another article about Bali’s increasingly polluted water without doing something about it. All over the island the quality of water from ground water wells was declining. We needed an affordable and effective water filter system for our five-room villa in the middle of Tabanan’s ricegrowing district and I resolved to learn as much as I could about these curious contraptions. The water from our 42-meter-deep ground water well on the top of a ridge at an altitude of about 400 meters wasn’t keeping out metals, minerals and pollutants. Fine black sandy grit was spitting out of our faucets and collecting inside drains and showerheads. My wife and I were fed up buying refills for our 19-liter plastic bottles at Rp10-Rp12,000 a pop. Inconvenient, difficult to transport and heavy to lift, we had to literally climb on top of our kitchen counters to insert the bottles into our dispenser. Sellers of water filters on Bali can also be unscrupulous. There are many pitfalls. They may sell you a much more elaborate and expensive system then you actually need. Or sell you an inadequate system. Use your head. Caveat emptor. It just makes sense that a little device attached to your faucet or showerhead isn’t going to filter out all the impurities. Rainwater can’t be trusted because of all the roof debris it carries with it on the way to your catchment system. Sometimes vendors won’t match the filter with the appropriate size pump. Other vendors might even install swimming pool filters instead of water filters in your house. Water is a passionate topic and there are a lot of differing opinions and “theories.” The hydrological and engineering terms used are difficult to get brain around. Some sellers swear by the reverse osmosis system, others will only sell UV-filters. When installations are done wrong, companies (after they’ve got all your money) may not come back to correct their work or even return your calls. After interviewing users, visiting sellers at their offices and showrooms, I came to the conclusion that installing a proper water filter for my house was going to be an expensive proposition and require constant maintenance. Moreover, none of the companies I contacted accepts credit payment plans, though they will install their various systems in graduated pay-as-you-go stages, i.e. first a filter for drinking water, then a water softener system, then a whole house system. Some tips: • Get a guarantee from your vendor for as long as possible. Ask for references and testimonials. Go out and see systems that he has installed. Talk to the people. • If you don’t buy a maintenance agreement, make sure it is clear how much maintenance, travel expenses and parts will cost. • Get an assurance that the vendor will uninstall the system and reinstall it once your lease contract ends or if you suddenly have to move. • Get your water tested for Rp460,000 for minerals, chemicals and bacteria at Bina Medika, Jl. Suli 10 (north of GOR Ngurah Rai), tel. 0361-228-895; hours 8 am-8pm. Or for Rp482,000 at Quantum, Jl. Sesetan 20, Sanglah (in front of DPP Demokrat), tel. 0361-228-835; hours 7 am-11 pm everyday. Otto Vlach: C.V Air Manis Asking around among my friends living in the Ubud area about water filters, a name that kept popping up was Otto Vlach who worked in the business five years. I told Otto that in California in the 1980s, I had a filtration system installed C. V. Air Manis FRP Filter & UV Sterilizer under my sink that cost $130, plus $42 every six months or so to replace the filter. He said that he doesn’t have a system as cheap as that, but close. Otto explained that he brings to the work site (kitchen, pump house, water tower) all the fittings, pipes, equipment and tools, charging customers a “delivery & installation fee “depending on the location and how big the job is. Most house jobs just take one day, so his work doesn’t disrupt the daily family routine. Otto has also worked as a consultant on big jobs, such as Green Village’s multi-million dollar bamboo dwellings. He sells a number of different water filtration systems from simple

under-the-sink affairs and multi-tank whole house filters and a system utilizing a UV-Sterilizer (a tube quartz lamp inside a stainless steel cylinder) that sterilizes water. If the water is very hard like in the Bukit area – the hardest in Bali - he also strongly recommends a water softener system. “The most popular system I install is a FRP-10-54 “Merlin” Reverse Osmosis Filter with a capacity of up to 3800 liters per day - more than enough for the needs of 4-8 people in one house. This system produces the best-tasting and cleanest water possible, as low as 004 ppm. It can filter “organics” like herbicides, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. The flow rate is 2,700 liter per hour.” Otto visited our property and noticed red orange colored substances in the earth, indicative of iron in the soil, probably from volcanic eruptions. Iron is a helpful mineral in very small quantities but can ruin machinery, color the laundry and is bad for health if digested in large concentrations. Otto doesn’t do any advertising but relies on the satisfaction of his clients who recommend him by word of mouth. “I do my best,” he smiled. “I’m a typical German, I’m thorough. I make sure that the job is done right.” He gives a three-month warranty on his work and one year on equipment. Otto can talk endlessly, knowledgeably and enthusiastically about his products. He has a good attitude. (“I’m learning everyday.”) And he has the Teutonic thing going for him. Address: C.V. Air Manis, Otto Vlach (owner), tel. 0361-977541, hp 081-337-104-737, email: balispirit@yahoo. de. Robbie of Smart Energy Robbie is a busy man. His company Smart Energy is at the top of every Google search when you’re looking for a water filter on Bali. “I’ll filter your house, I’ll deal with grey water, I’ll take care of septic wastes,” he told me as I sat in his upstairs office at Istana Kuta Galeria just around the corner from Ace Hardware. Robbie has a degree in Thermo-Fluid Dynamics Engineering but now he’s really into water. “For four Smart Energy’s Back Wash Filter years now I’ve been lucky doing something I’m passionate about.” I marveled at the way this energetic man, with an engineer’s twinkle in his eye, grew rapturous over TDS (Total Dissolved Solvents) and ppm (particles per million). “Water is our life source. We can go without food for five days but try to go that long without water. Water has a very complex biochemical structure. Any mechanical process can alter it. That is why I prefer treatment at the source, which keeps the molecules intact. You have to take it out of the ground, process it, filter it and then transport it. That’s a big carbon footprint just to put water into a small plastic bottle.” I asked how do I go about getting him to put in a filter system for our house. “First I want to know what I’m dealing with. You need to have your water tested and get me the results within two days. Or you can give us your water and we’ll get it tested for you.” Robbie then looks at the results, then sends you a quotation to see if my estimate is within your budget.” The first step for many of his customers is to get drinking water into the house. There are a lot of options. “The RO system produces distilled or “dead” water. You need to drink water to rehydrate but this method strips the water of all the good stuff. The RO filtration system I sell lets beneficial minerals through. It’s point of use system, costing only Rp2-3 million, and is installed under your sink. The clean water is dispensed from a separate sink-top tap.” “If you opt for one of our automatic whole house systems for clean bathing water, it costs Rp8-9 million. That can be reduced by Rp2 million if you use a manual system. I give a three-month service and 5-year guarantees on tank, 1 year on controller head. To do additional service or clean (backwash) your system, I charge a flat Rp150,000 per hour. If you live very far out, I have to charge travel time.” The phone was ringing. It was a client on a job he was doing in north Bali. “Up there,” he said, “you have to take everything to a job. Try getting a non-return valve in Singaraja.” Address: Smart Energy, VL 19, Istana Kuta Galeria, Jl. Patih Jelantik, tel/fax. 0361-769-012, hp 081-139-4637, email: Info@, website: Hours: 10 am- 5 pm. John Nicholas: P.T. Solar Power Indonesia John’s company is an example of an entrepreneur who sells water filter systems as a profitable sideline to a number of renewable energy systems (solar, wind, hydro, etc.). “Our business concentrates on different forms of renewable energy technologies and therefore we only offer one small cartridge filter out of a whole range of products.” The cartridge filter, selling for Rp1.5 million (without installation), is cheap and suitable for small applications.

How much? “The cost depends on what is required. We often design specific systems for clients. Therefore there is no set cost.

When I asked Troy Lowrie what systems Starfish sells, his answer was surprising. “We don’t sell our systems. We license clients to use the technology and charge a TAF (Technology Access Fee) that depends on the size and number of purification units required.” “We custom build the systems for each application. Our average client uses about 1500 liters per day. This system doesn’t require much energy, can be installed with low capital outlay – US$185.00 per month - and has low service and maintenance. The TAF is valid for 8 years.” “We also have a home/villa unit capable of treating up to 10,000 liters per day. A small estate complex of between 4 and 6 villas would benefit from this system because it costs only $599.00 per month, a very cost effective means for collective water treatment. Our large commercial systems have an even higher capacity - up to 650,000 liters per day. The most recent client to use our technology is Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel which can now recycle approximately 250,000 liters of high quality water per day.” “The Starfish system, using a combination of Ozone and UV disinfection, is the world’s most advanced and efficient water purification technology. Starfish produces higher quality hygienic water because it removes harmful chemicals and has high microbiological killing power. The process is filter and chemical free and our waste represents only 2% of the water treated. There are no moving parts and no membranes to change.” Customers can see demo models in the Starfish showroom located behind Dijon’s on Simpang Siur. Starfish is the sole distributor of its technology in Bali and their systems can be purchased directly from their showroom. End user’s testimonials, available from Troy, are impressive.

Grow an Avocado from Seed

The avocado is native to Central and South America, where many varieties grow over a range of differing climates. The Aztec name for avocado was ahuacatl, funnily enough meaning “testicle.” The Aztecs revered the avocado as a fertility fruit and as an aphrodisiac. The fruit later became known as aguacate by the Spanish. The English originally called it the alligator pear. Here in Indonesia it is known as apulkat. Spanish conquistadors were presented with avocados upon their arrival in Central America by the Aztecs and Incas in the 16th century. It is evident from historical accounts that at that time avocados were grown all the way from Mexico well into to South America, as far south as Peru and Venezuela. By the early 1800s, the avocado had spread throughout southern Europe, Hawaii, Africa, all the way to Southeast Asia. The avocado contains high quantities of Vitamin E, K, folic acid and also contains minerals such as potassium, thiamin, iron, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium and manganese. The fruit is also a source of monounsaturated fat which helps in lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and boosts HDL (good) cholesterol. A tea made from the leaves is also reputed to have many health benefits.

How to grow it? To get the seed sprouting quickly, it needs immediate planting. Open the avocado and remove the seed. Wash it and remove any of the fruit that might still be attached to it. If the avocado seed is started in soil, fill a large container with a light soil mix and plant the seed so that the pointed end is at the soil surface. Plant them in an area where they are protected from strong winds. Once established they will need full sun to produce good fruit. Indoor gardeners have developed their own germination method. This is done by poking three toothpicks into the side of the seed so that it can rest halfway immersed in water, on the rim of a glass. Avocado roots like most other plants need oxygen, so the seedlings will actually grow better in soil than in water. If growing a seedling in water, the water should be changed at least every few days. Whether germinated in water or soil, remember to set the seed with its base (the wider portion) down, and the pointed end up. Avocado plants grow into trees, so you should provide them with plenty of growing space, if planted in the ground. Avocados are very susceptible to root rot. Over watering can cause waterlogged soil which will cause the roots to rot and die. Water the plant enough to keep the soil moist but not wet. A wet soil will result in curled yellowing leaves and soft stems. In this case allow the soil to dry out a little. If growing in containers use a soil that allows for good drainage and always use pots with drainage holes. In the case of under watering, a soil that is too dry will cause dry leaves brown at the margins that will eventually fall off. Typically, trees need to be watered two to three times a week. Avocado plants should be fertilized two to three times a year with a standard fruit and vegetable fertilizer. When the plant grows to half a meter in height, prune the top

set of leaves and move it to a sunny position to encourage the plant to grow side shoots and more leaves. An avocado tree can grow into a large tall tree up to 15 meters. With pruning it can be kept to a much shorter height, you could even bonsai it if you so desire! How big or small it grows is entirely up to you.

Will my tree ever bear fruit? Avocado trees are a favorite among tropical fruit tree lovers and are often seen in landscaping. Growing an avocado from seed can be a fun project that kids love. Avocados do not come true from seed, meaning the fruit won’t necessarily be exactly like the one the seed came from, but there are many instances where a seedling has produced nice fruit, no different from the parent. Avocados grown from seed can indeed produce strong trees and tasty fruit! Seedlings can usually take anywhere from five to ten years to bear fruit, but it really depends on the growing conditions. If you have patience you should be graced with a tree that produces an abundance of avocados. Sometimes they can begin to set fruit after three or four years. To ensure that the plants will bear fruit grow several, and this will also aid with successful pollination. If you just grow one on its own it may never bear fruit, but nevertheless you will still have a beautiful tree that is inexpensive, and fun to grow.

C/HO/G-8 Feb. 12

The main issue with fruit is tree health. It needs a healthy soil, warm tropical conditions, appropriate watering, filtered light when young and direct sun when mature. Bright indirect light is best for young avocado plants, direct sun will cause sunburn to the leaves! On the other hand too much love can also be a problem. If the tree is over fertilized with nitrogen, then avocado trees can remain strong and vigorous but with little or no fruit even if buds and flowers appear. Avocados must reach full maturity before they are picked, however, they do not soften on the tree. The tree can actually be used as a storage unit by keeping the fruit on the tree for many months after maturing, though eventually it will fall and ripen on the ground. When the first one falls you know that you can start to harvest the others from the tree. Store picked fruit in the cupboard until soft and ripe and ready to eat. To produce fruit within one or two years, commercial avocado orchards are planted using grafted trees and rootstocks. To have absolutely no doubt that your plant will bear fruit quickly you could buy a grafted variety of avocado, but that would take away all the fun, anticipation and wonder of, when will the tree bear fruit, and how will it taste?

THE HEART OF BALI Collaborating to Make the World a Better Place By Michele Cempaka Two NGO’s have come together to create an even stronger impact on the world: Bali Kids and KOTO - Know One-Teach One. Bali Kids’ primary goal is to assist sick and orphaned children throughout Bali, providing much needed health education, and offering a wide range of medical services including expert treatment for children that are HIV+. Established in 2004, Bali Kids reaches out to more than 6,000 disadvantaged children each year. KOTO was established in Vietnam in 1999 with the mission of providing a practical pathway to employment for disadvantaged youth. Their first training center began in Hanoi in 2002 and currently trains100 students. In 2010, a second training center was opened in Ho Chi Minh City with places for an additional 100 students, making a combined total of 200 trainees in their hospitality program. KOTO has trained over 350 kids to date. “We’ve stumbled on to a very good formula that seems to work very well with street children and other disadvantaged youth. Not only do they get to learn a vocational skill in hospitality, but the kids actually believe in and practice the ‘Know One, Teach One’ philosophy. We have had some great successes with our programs in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Now we’re looking at doing a feasibility study and of course one of the places we’re considering is Bali. We’ll take our results to the international board and they will decide what the next step is strategically to open a KOTO program on Bali. Basically we’ll be looking at whether there’s a need for a program like KOTO. The model used would be exactly the same as our programs in Vietnam. It will be a two year program in hospitality training,” said Jimmy Pham, founder of KOTO. “In Bali, there will be 25 students in a class with four classes. We will take them in every six months with the goal of gradually increasing enrollment over the next two years. KOTO offers a sponsorship program in which a sponsor can donate USD$100 a month and be connected with one trainee, so that they have repeated contact and can watch the progress of the trainee they’re sponsoring.” Jimmy asserts that in Vietnam, this fee only covers about 25% of their expenses. The rest of the money comes from donations and restaurant operations. The KOTO hospitality program consists of 50% theoretical work combined with 50% on the job training. Throughout the two years of study, trainees do vocational training, life skills which include reproductive health, stress management, anger management and drugs, as well as English language studies. The trainees are also required to do 36 hours of community service work. The concept is to give them a quality of life that will give youth the opportunity to be an active and positive member of society. The kids are looked after holistically for two years and are provided with accommodation and food during their time in the KOTO program. A comprehensive education program is also made available to all trainees, which includes Basic English language studies, Health education and basic life skills. At the end of the two years, they receive an international certificate from KOTO, which is an internationally recognized

college. In addition to the two colleges, there are also training restaurants in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The kids receive a salary while they’re training to prevent them from returning back to the streets. Kids who do drugs are not admitted into the program as it’s too disruptive. Koto is very successful at what they do. Just because a child is a street kid or poor doesn’t necessarily mean they will be automatically accepted into the program. They must first go through a series of interviews; this is paramount to the success of the program. “Can you imagine kids who were once shining shoes or selling snacks at the side of the road are now working at five star hotels? Some of them are also now working overseas in Dubai, Australia and Africa,” said Jimmy.

On April 14, 2012, there will be a special fundraiser for the Bali Kids foundation held at Melia Bali Hotel, to help raise money for their orphanage and other programs for disadvantaged kids. 14 former Vietnamese street kids will prepare a very special dinner giving guests a taste of the success of KOTO programs. If the KOTO program is set up in Bali, they will need a great deal of financial support from donors, as well as backing from local hotels who are ready and willing to commit to hiring youths who graduate from KOTO. In May, children from Bali Kids will visit Vietnam to perform at a KOTO graduation in a wonderful cultural exchange. Jimmy’s vision has always been to expand KOTO to other developing countries. “I see Bali and Jakarta hugely benefiting from a project like KOTO. I recently heard a moving speech by a Koto graduate. He was just 12 years old when he went to Hanoi to find a job to help support his family. He got a job selling postcards, but it wasn’t enough to send money home to his family. Consequently, his siblings never went to school, because they never had enough money. Then he was discovered by KOTO and was a highly successful graduate. Now he has fulltime employment. Because of the KOTO program all his siblings go to school and are educated. You’re not just seeing the benefit for that child who goes through the KOTO program; it has a ripple effect for the entire family,” said Brenton Whittaker, Project Coordinator for Bali Kids.

“There’s an old Chinese proverb: ‘Give a man a fish and you’ll feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you’ll feed him for life.’ For me KOTO is not about showing them how to fish any more; it’s about revolutionizing the whole fishing industry,” said Jimmy.

by Dr. Rob Mellow Yellow Paintings and Installation by Soni Irawan At Kendra Gallery, Jl. Drupadi 88B, Seminyak. Tel: 736628


At the beginning of the 1980s, a proliferation of new urban images appeared almost everywhere seeking out new places for presentation, such as billboards, subway trains, and abandoned buildings. However, called ‘graffiti art’, it exploded in New York, and soon spread to the rest of the world. Originating in the ghettos and streets of the Bronx and Brooklyn, it was in New York that graffiti art was to give a new identity to the artists who, working outside the traditional techniques and places of art, confronted themselves and their own signs with the countless signs of the city. These artists covered their cities with their exuberant sign-paintings, before finding fame and fortune after being taken up by museums and art galleries. Some of the artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat became super-stars. These graffiti images were a search for an artistic language in which the signifier did not refer to a signified. The images were anarchic and technological, both in their structure and the materials used, such as aerosol spray paint and indelible felt-tip pens. Graffiti art was a departure from reality in order to confront it. Signs and letters and figures mingled in graffiti art as it proposed not only new signs and scenarios, but, above all else, exciting and new subject-matters. Currently, the Kendra Gallery is presenting an exhilarating solo exhibition by Soni Irawan, who is not only a well known rock star, but, is also a well established professional ‘graffiti’ artist from Jogjakarta. Soni was born in Yogyakarta in 1975, and he has lived there ever since. He studied fine art in the Faculty of Graphic Arts at the Indonesian Art Institute. While at the Institute, Soni formed a rock group called ‘Sick Seek Six’. Today, the band is still going strong, and Soni’s paintings are all very much influenced by his music. Street art, or graffiti art, as part of a wide ‘low brow’ art movement, today plays a huge part throughout Indonesian culture, and it has been exhibited in many galleries around Jakarta and Jogjakarta. Soni takes his inspiration from the vibrant street life of bustling Jogjakarta. In his exhibition, ‘Mellow Yellow’, Soni presents a collection of impressions of the people who make up the passing parade. However, his graffiti art inspired paintings are held together by a jigsaw-like vivacious patterning. Soni does not primarily paint individual figures, but, rather their moods, allusions, or allegorical circumstances. He says that his works generally depict the discomforts of life around him, in a mellow manner and style. In this way he aims to be “gentler and more tolerant towards the situation, without screaming or emitting cries”. Soni’s canvases are not made in an abstracted, unempathic style, but, are a moody sort of visualization, following the highs and lows of a personal inner-mood. In his show, Soni presents recent paintings and drawings

such as ‘Artwork 1 and Artwork 2’, along with some everyday found objects that he has placed into installation works.

comment: “The vast cultural similarities and divides between the islands of Indonesia truly inspired me to venture deeper into my love of the world of art, and to share my style of artwork with many different communities”. E-mail: Copyright © 2012 Dr. Rob

The 3-Dimensions of Exhibition of 3-D Computer Images by Olli Fraenkel. At Ganesha Gallery, Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran Bay. Tel: 701010. Whether by design or accident, it is interesting that the Ganesha Gallery, in its exhibition ‘The 3-Dimensions of’, is also displaying works inspired by graffiti. Since the arrival of the first wave of young surfers in the late 1960s, Bali has become not only a major international surfing destination, but, also a creative centre of surf culture. It was the surf that first brought German artist Olli Fraenkel to Bali, and it is the surf that has kept him here. The bold designs which typify surf culture, as seen on surf boards and clothing, trace their origins to several sources. As previously stated, ‘graffiti’ started as a way for urban youths to express themselves in neighborhoods like the Bronx in New York. It then rose to notoriety during the rise of the ‘hip-hop’ culture. The first real graffiti artist was ‘Taki 183’. He worked as a foot messenger in New York City, and he wrote his nickname, ‘Tag’, around the city streets that he frequented. Signing, or ‘tagging’, graffiti murals became an essential part of the art form. Another source behind graffiti is tribal art, which includes Indonesia’s own tribal heritage: the Dayak of Borneo, the Toraja of Sulawesi, and other groups from Sumba, Flores, Timor and New Guinea. As a dedicated graffiti artist producing works under the pseudonym of ‘’, Olli Fraenkel explains that it was a youthful urge which impelled him to spray paint the dull grey ‘predictability’ of his birthplace with vibrant colors and designs. After working on corporate designs and websites during the day, and wandering the world on surf trips during his free-time, the multi-talented Olli Sunny settled in Bali, where he designs for surf wear, and works on photographs, and 3-D computer art. Ambon

From the viewpoint of large graffiti murals, the smaller computer works on display, such as ‘Sunny’, ‘Ambon’, ‘Cooper’ and ‘Sayang’, are Olli’s equivalent of graffiti miniatures. The connection of his persona with Indonesia is eloquently summed up in his

Australian traveller, writer (of erotic poetry among other things) and Ubud resident Jade Richardson is running an innovative four-part writers’ course in February and March, the last component of which is Erotic Writing. Stewart Crawford looks at the opportunities that exist in this genre. Bali’s place in world erotica is well documented. It is implicit in the monographic art of the Hindu religion – something legislators in Jakarta forgot when they passed the contentious anti-pornography law in 2008 – and in folklore that underpins much of Balinese culture. By contrast western societies have long considered erotica as borderline obscene. To most people it is dirty postcards - though today the internet has replaced well-thumbed photographic reproductions - and pornography. Europeans are still not long removed from the Victorian days when table legs were covered to prevent unseemly thoughts. Only the sensibly sensual French remained immune from this disease. But erotic art in any of its many forms is not pornography. If artistic merit exists in work that touches upon sexuality – and it is here that gross pornography departs the artistic ambiance – then what counts is the art, not someone else’s definition of prurience. Eroticism is encountered throughout the spectrum of arts: in paintings, drawings and graf¿ti; in ¿lm; ubiquitously in music (try this line from the Rufus Wainwright song Do It Again: “I may say no, no, no, no... But do it again... Oh, no one is near... I may cry, oh, oh, oh... But no one will hear”; or this one from I Want You by the Australian pop group Savage Garden – “Ooh I want you, I don’t know if I need you but Ooh I’d die to find out “; in literature; and nowadays on the internet. It is in literature that one ¿nds the fundamental reference point. Much else is ephemeral, at least so far as engaging continuing attention goes. Erotic literature has a long history. Gaius Valerius Cattalus and Publius Ovidius Naso (Ovid) were at it two millennia before retentive Victorians got out the lace cover-ups in defence of decency. Oriental, Indian, Greek and Persian and Arab writers of antiquity have left us a rich legacy of warming thoughts. Sappho, in particular, is a prompt to eroticism far wider than her intended audience. In our own modern era, think Petrarch, along with Dante the secular progenitor of the Renaissance. Petrarch’s love sonnets dedicated to Laura are masterpieces of erotic poetry.

It is no less present in later modern literature: Think Marquis de Sade, who wrote Justine. Think Alexander Pushkin; his Gabriliad is unquestionable outré. Think Anaïs Nin, whose magni¿cent work Delta of Venus, like most of her writing, was published after her death in 1977. Think Vladimir Nabokov (Lolita). Think Henry Miller (Tropic of Cancer). Think Yukio Mishima, who is compelling in his homoerotic novels Forbidden Colours and Confessions of a Mask; so too is Yasunari Kawabata, in his book Beauty and Sadness. Do not overlook Mark Twain’s 1601; it is a long way from Huckleberry Finn. One word of warning: Do not think Mario Vargas

Llosa. He is a limp failure, against the far more erotic stimulus of his Travels With My Aunt, with Los cuardernos de don Rigoberto (The Notebooks of Don Rigoberto). The original Spanish gets closer but is still far from stimulatory. Few among us can reach the peaks of writing that make for an international name. But technology has brought many within reach of publication via the internet. American-born British writer Mitzi Szereto with her Getting Even: Revenge Stories is a case in point. These days, it is far easier for people to release their inner author. But the aim is still to get read, so acquiring some basic skills and wider knowledge is an advantage. Here’s where Richardson steps in, on the back of a 25-year chasing of the Muse. She says: “There is one great truth about teaching writing - it cannot be done. But what can be shared, shown and raised up in anybody with a pencil, or a stick and some mud, is story. Story is not something a psychotherapist can drag out of you; it is not something somebody who read books about writing can give you the mechanics for. It has nothing to do with spelling, grammar, clever words or a book deal. It is about learning how to listen for a story when she whispers to you.... tell me: “And then serving it, following it, living it, listening to all its characters and places and names, and wanting to give another person the gift of that magic in story. Without this all writing is either therapeutic (cathartic) or nitpicky (clever); and could seduce you into whisky or cigarettes or poverty.” Richardson – whose CV includes puking her guts out in the Amazon basin and being shat on by a penguin as well as awards for poetry and erotic writing – brings a refreshing honesty to the business of writing and showing others how it can be done. “In my life I have been blessed with the ear for a story in her whispering state, and have cultivated the courage to follow the trail with my ears, my nostrils, my notebook and my passport wide open,” she says. “My basic message and my offering to anybody who wants to come and learn how to rise up their own stories and write in ways that other people will want to read and may want to publish ... is that storytelling, writing, is one of the most beautiful arts. It has nothing to do with struggling. “I teach a style that helps writers learn to contact the stories resting in their own journeys, lives, memories and hearts ... stories older and more beautiful, sexy and dangerous, thrilling and poetic than anything you only think you can write. “In my erotic workshops I have one simple aim: to show writers, be they hot, frazzled, lusty, frigid, mean, desperate, dewy-eyed or freaked out on horny goat weed, how to write with a measure of sensuality that puts smoke on the page. The pencil is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” Richardson’s Write Like an Angel quartet offers Unlocking Creativity (Feb. 22, 23 and 25); Travel Writing (Feb. 28, 29); Advanced Creative Writing (Mar. 1, 2, 4) and Erotica (Mar. 8, 9, 11).

Swimming pool always green?

“I’ll Huff and I’ll Puff” After a period of relief from the terrible times of a couple of years ago the supply from the Peddlers Listrik National are on the blink once again with warnings of regular power outages for March as they change the spark plugs in the plant in Gilimanuk. We’re not going to think of that this week, we are here to talk about air or at least the rapid movement of it. As we said last edition here in Bali we are in an area affected by cyclones which tend to hit the North West coast of Australia. Also, as we said last week, cyclones (and their northern version hurricanes) can form a minimum of 5 degrees North or South of the equator, most are between 10 and 30 degrees North or South of the equator, and Bali, being 8 degrees South, means we are highly unlikely to get a direct hit but can be subject to very strong winds and rain from cyclones that may pass quite close by. This means that full cyclone proofing is probably not necessary however precautions are advised. Let us look at what is involved in protecting houses from strong winds and particularly stormproofing techniques that are used in Australia. Most houses in Australia these days are built with a timber or lightweight steel frames lined on the inside with plasterboard (gyprock, gypsum or drywall) and on the outside with a veneer of brick (for ornamental rather than structural purposes). They have timber or light steel roof trusses which support heavy concrete roof tiles or zincalume sheets. In Australia it is well recognised that stormproofing requires a continuous system, the roof tiles are fixed to the battens (usually nailed or better screwed), the battens are fastened to the roof trusses (nailed and strengthened with sheet steel straps), the roof trusses are fixed to the wall frames (also nailed or screwed and strengthened with straps) and the wall frames are bolted to the foundation slab. Here in Bali construction is quite different and most houses are built with a reinforced concrete box structure of columns and beams with the walls filled in with batu merah (red brick) or batako (lightweight concrete blocks). Roofs usually have wooden frames or more often these days lightweight steel frames which tend to sit on the concrete structure with minimal fixing. Tiles are usually terracotta which are not fastened down, alang alang is common which is tied to a bamboo or wooden frame and to a lesser extent sheet steel, asbestos and Onduline which are nailed, or better, screwed down. To stormproof (and for that matter earthquake proof) a house here it is important to make sure that the reinforcing steel inside the structure is locked together where the columns meet the beams and where the structure meets the floor. It is also important, though usually omitted, to use steel ties to fasten the batako or red brick wall panels into the concrete columns. This latter point may sound unnecessary however I am aware of a batako wall that blew down during the recent strong winds we had in January. Fortunately no one was hurt but it could have been fatal if someone had been in the wrong place at the wrong time. What is most important is that the roof is firmly fixed to the concrete structure. Roofs are the parts of any building that are most vulnerable to strong winds and there are several aspects to consider. The first is the angle of the roof to the wind. Steeply sloping roofs present an obstruction that can, like a wall, be damaged by pressure. Of greater concern, however, is when a roof is not sloping enough and the whole roof acts like the aerofoil of an aircraft wing. Wind passing over the roof speeds up as it goes over the ridge creating suction which can lift the roof off. Forces involved should not be underestimated, think of how little wing area is needed to lift a large aircraft off the ground (usually at around 160 knots) and you can see how much power can be generated by the aerofoil effect. A good slope for a roof is probably around 30 degrees. Roof tiles can be lifted if strong winds can penetrate and close fitting tiles should be preferred over tiles that can allow air to get under them. Close fitting tiles also are better for reducing water penetration.

Gabled roofs (roofs where the roof ridge continues to the end of the roof as opposed to hip roofs which have an angled section of roof across the end) are susceptible to damage because the gables trap the wind. Gabled roofs need to have their vertical wall well braced to withstand strong winds.

The wind can also get under the eaves around the edge of a roof and, once again, lift it off. Eaves are important because they stop wind getting into your roofspace. Eaves are often forgotten being made from something relatively flimsy (such as plasterboard) and without much bracing. If they fail large amounts of water carried by strong winds can penetrate the roof space and do serious damage easily bringing down a ceiling made from plasterboard.

Windows and doors may fail during a heavy storm, glass may break or doors may open particularly if they are hit by flying debris. Once they fail high pressure may develop inside the building which can under severe conditions blow the building apart. Hinges, locks and catches should be strong enough to withstand a storm but also be aware that door or window frames can be pulled out of walls so the frame fixtures also need to be strong. Taping the glass in your window panes might not stop them breaking in a violent storm but will help to hold the glass and stop it blowing around if it breaks. Masking tape is good, fabric based tape such as gaffer tape or the American version of duct tape is best. To prepare for serious cyclones it is common practice to cover doors and windows with pieces of thick plywood. As is often the case our ancestors had tricks we can learn from and houses in tropical storm areas often had shutters on their windows which provide good storm protection. Statistics indicate that in a cyclone most fatalities are caused by storm surge, the rising of sea level due to strong winds. It makes sense to build on higher ground or evacuate at times of an incoming storm.

C/BM/U-28Dec. 11

After storm surge flying debris is probably the most dangerous aspect of any storm. In Australia, with widespread use of sheet steel for roofs, flying pieces of zincalume (corrugated iron) pose a particularly frightening prospect. Building structures and components can be weakened by damage from rust, rot, termites or by fittings such as bolts or nails coming loose which in turn can allow things to fall apart under stress. Regular inspection should be carried out to keep on top of these issues. Satellite dishes, roof materials, pergolas, air conditioners, water heaters, solar panels and antennas may break loose and turn into missiles. They all need to be firmly secured. Also look out for outdoor furniture, awnings, umbrellas and swimming pool equipment which should all be put away before strong winds arrive. Branches may be blown off trees. Be particularly aware of regrowth. Original branches that form on a tree as it grows are far more firmly attached to the rest of the tree than branches that regrow after a tree has been pruned. Dead branches should be removed. Strong winds are not the only risk from cyclones, in heavy rain the strong winds can drive water through any openings in walls, windows under doors etc. Once water enters it can cause a lot of damage. Go around your walls and check that holes are sealed up and don’t forget the inevitable gaps around air conditioner piping or where air conditioners have been removed. Cyclones should not be underestimated, they can be very dangerous things. A friend of mine who survived being in a house that suffered a direct hit during Darwin’s cyclone Tracy back in 1974 told a harrowing story. Only one partial wall survived, the one the bed he was hiding under was leaning against. The last thing his host said as he went off to a Christmas party was “look after the house.” Phil Wilson Opinions expressed are those of Phil Wilson.

Local News Indonesia to Revise Law on Mass Oeganizations Indonesian Home Minister Gamawan Fauzi said the outdated 1985 Law on Mass Organizations had prevented his ministry from creating decisive measures against the notorious and hard-line Islam Defenders Front (FPI).

Kalimantan on Saturday, where representatives from local customary groups rejected the presence of four senior FPI leaders, Gamawan said he had talked to Central Kalimantan Governor Agustin Teras Narang.

Gamawan urged the House of Representatives to speed-up deliberation on the revision of the law, which had been protracted for months.

“I heard the governor would hold a forum involving local religious leaders, representatives from customary groups and the Indonesian Ulema Council to respond the incident. I think that will be a good step and I support it,” said Gamawan, who is also a former West Sumatra governor.

“The measures against violent mass organizations in the 1985 law were too complicated, time consuming and not efficient. I want this law to be amended to accommodate simpler procedures in taking decisive actions against violent mass organizations,” Gamawan said on Monday (13/2). He also said that the law was too old and that it contained articles no longer relevant to the current situation concerning mass organizations. The move to revise the 1985 law, however, appeared to be the result of public pressure to disband vigilante groups such as the FPI. Dozens of NGOs, however, protested against the bill, which they said could threaten the constitutional right to form or to be involved in civil society organizations. Gamawan dismissed the allegation; instead claiming the new law would promote better protection for civilians’ right to be involved in mass organizations and freedom of speech. Concerning






Hundreds of protesters, largely from the Dayak tribe, staged a protest at Tjilik Riwut Airport in Palangka Raya to block the arrival of FPI leaders and managed to force their way onto the airport’s apron and runway to confront the FPI officials who had come to the city to inaugurate a provincial branch of the organisation. Following the security breach, the management of the airport ordered the FPI members to remain on board a Sriwijaya Air plane while the other passengers disembarked. The four FPI members were then not allowed to leave the plane and were flown to Banjarmasin in South Kalimantan. Earlier on Monday, the FPI filed a report with the National Police over the incident. They accused five men, namely Teras Narang, Narang’s relative Lukas Tingkes, local youth figure Yansen Binti and Sabran Sukron, as those behind the airport protest. The FPI said the protest was organized to cover up local crimes. (February 14th 2012)

Alleged Bali Bomber to Face Six Charges The man believed to have built the devices used in the first Bali bombings which killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, will be charged with mass murder for his alleged role in the 2002 attacks. Prosecutors today delivered a 50-page indictment to the West Jakarta District Court where Umar Patek is expected to face trial later this month on six charges related to his suspected involvement in terrorist activities over more than a decade. Patek, who has allegedly already admitted to a role in the Bali bombings, won’t be charged with terrorism offences over the 2002 attacks because Indonesia’s tough anti-terrorism laws, introduced in 2003, cannot be applied retrospectively.

his arrest in Pakistan”. The 43-year-old spent almost 10 years at the top of Southeast Asia’s most-wanted list before his capture in January 2011 in Abbottabad, the same Pakistani town where US forces killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden last May. Prosecutors will present evidence from up to 80 witnesses during the trial, including testimony from Australian and American survivors who lived through the horror of the Bali attacks. They will also rely on evidence already provided by Patek, who in October last year retraced his steps in the final hours before bombs were detonated at the Sari Club and Paddy’s Bar.

However, he will face a charge of premeditated mass murder in relation to the bombing of two nightclubs in the popular holiday area of Kuta 10 years ago, as well as a series of bombings of churches in Indonesia in 2000. If found guilty of the murder charges he could be sentenced to death.

The evidence also includes video of Patek showing police where he finished assembling the bombs. Patek is the last of the key members of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) - the group behind the Bali bombings - to face justice over what remains Indonesia’s most deadly terrorist attack.

A copy of the indictment, also lists charges of conspiracy to commit terrorism, harboring information on terrorism, possession of explosives and firearms, as well as two counts of document fraud.

His trial comes after the conviction last year of high-profile JI co-founder and the spiritual leader of the jihadist movement in Indonesia, Abu Bakar Bashir, following the discovery of a secret paramilitary training camp in Aceh.

Indonesian authorities, including a special counter-terrorism unit with the Attorney-General’s Department, have been working on building a watertight case against Patek since his extradition from Pakistan in August last year.

The bespectacled cleric served almost 26 months behind bars for conspiracy over the 2002 Bali bombings but that conviction was later overturned.

Bambang Suharyadi, one of a team of 15 prosecutors who will be involved in the trial, told AAP last night that the indictment covered Patek’s alleged involvement in terrorist activities “from the Christmas bombings up to

Patek’s trial will be conducted amid heavy security, with authorities concerned about the possibility of reprisal attacks from his old network, which they believe may still be active in Indonesia. It is expected to run until late May or early June. (February 8th 2012)

Gangs in Bali clash, 1 House & 2 Cars Destroyed Two gangs clashed in a mass brawl in Baturiti, Tabanan on Saturday night (11/12). The incident resulted in a house and two cars being destroyed in the riots. Clashes allegedly involving members of the Laskar Bali gang (LB) and the Baladika Bali gang broke out at about 7.30pm on Kuningan day, one of Bali’s most holy days according to the Hindu calendar. Approximately 15 people claiming to be from organizations LB raided the Village of Mekarsari, known to be the home of the chief of the Baladika organization. The mob stoned houses causing damage to the roofs of many homes, and one vehicle parked on the vicinity was completely destroyed. Tabanan Police Chief Senior Commissioner Eko Purnomo Dekananto said that the local police force had managed to diffuse the immediate situation, however there was still tension and that his team would continue to monitor activities in the area. (February 12th 2012) Siloam Hospitals Group to Open State of the Art Facility- Bali 2012 The Siloam Hospitals Group is planning to open a stateof-the-art health facility in Bali later this year. The hospital is currently under construction on Sunset road in Kuta. The Siloam group is one of Indonesia’s most progressive and innovative healthcare providers, offering World Class Healthcare. Siloam Hospitals Group was established with a vision to increase equitable access to quality, affordable healthcare across Indonesia. Their concept and business strategy enables the group to provide more services to more people, lowering costs for the individual and thus, increasing affordability. The Siloam Hospitals Group’s exceptional operational and quality standards are enabled by the use of leading-edge technology, equipment and training. SHG’s collaboration with the Mochtar Riady Institute of Nanotechnology (MRIN) and the Universitas Pelita Harapan’s Faculty of Medicine and School of Nursing is unique to Indonesia and demonstrates Siloam’s commitment to creating sustainable healthcare services. In 2007, Siloam Hospitals Lippo Village became the first hospital in Indonesia to receive international accreditation from the USA-based Joint Commission International (JCI), which was re-accredited in 2010. (February 8th 2012) India Offers Technical Assistance to Produce Cheap Tablets in Indonesia The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Rajasthan, which has gained fame for manufacturing the least expensive tablet computers in the world at a price of only 35 US dollars per unit, announced it will assist Indonesia in manufacturing low-priced tablet computers. According to a press release received on Friday (3/2), Head of the Development Team of “Aakhaas” Tablet, S. Yadav, and Director of ITT Rajashtan B. Ravindra said they would provide technical assistance and product development for Indonesia to manufacture the tablet computer. He made the statement to RI Ambassador in India, Ret. Lt. General Andi M. Ghalib, when he visited IIT Rajasthan in Jodhpur, India on Wednesday, Feb 1. Yadav further said the key to manufacturing such inexpensive tablet computers was maintaining simple concepts. “First, we have to choose the cheapest components without compromising the quality,” he said. The next factor was creating an optimized production process according to location, wages for labor and distribution. “The more important thing is that the production amount should reach the mass amount. Therefore, the production amount must be enough to be able to reach an economic scale,” he said. (February 3rd 2012)

Video of Bali Girl Gang Hitting Ex-member goes Viral

Measles-related mortality rate drops 90 percent

Members of an all-girl gang in Denapsar, Bali have been detained after allegedly taking 15-year-old Kiki Ariani, to a secluded spot and assaulting her. The attack was filmed by a gang member and posted on video-sharing website YouTube. The 51/2-minute clip quickly went viral. The person who uploaded it claimed that it was done to embarrass the victim. All the seven members of the Cewek Macho Performance (or Macho Girls Performance) gang have been arrested. Five have been charged with assaulting the teenager and two are being questioned to find out their exact role in the assault, said Denpasar Police chief Comr. Arif Sugiarto. The girls are all 16 or 17 years old, the police chief said. The footage shows assailants ripping Kiki’s clothes and trying to smash a bottle against her head. Some of them are seen pulling her hair. Kiki is seen being pushed to the ground. Speaking at her Denpasar home, Kiki said the beating occurred in December in the Balinese capital Denpasar. “They picked me up at my home and I was taken to an empty lot. They accused me of different things - flirting with Okta’s (a gang member) boyfriend, getting my club jacket dirty, stealing money from the group. But before I got to explain anything, they beat me and kicked me.” Kiki said she joined the gang and stayed in it for a year because she had a lot in common with the other members. Like others in the group, she comes from a broken home, dropped out of school and loves motorcycles. Kiki, who moved in with her aunt after her father remarried, said she didn’t finish elementary school. She said that after the video caused an uproar, her attackers apologized to her. But other people urged Kiki to file a police report, which she eventually did. Ms Titik Suhariyanti of the Bali Child Protection Agency said the investigation must continue to deter others from conducting similar attacks. (February 12th 2012)

The measles-related mortality rate in Indonesia has dropped by about 90 percent, a study by an international team of representatives from various countries has revealed, Director General for Disease Control and Sanitation (P2PL) of the Ministry of Health, Tjandra Yoga Aditama, said here on Monday (13/2). Tjandra added that that the team was composed of representatives from the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and CDC United States. The team submitted its report to the Indonesian Health Minister, Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih, on Friday. In its visit to Indonesia, the team also provided several recommendations, among others, that the government should consider providing second doses of measles immunizations for infants at the age of 18 months, which is to be combined with the DPT4 immunization. The government is also recommending health checks be performed on children when they began going to school. Additionally, the government should adopt a measles elimination strategy. “It suggests that the government should reinforce routine immunizations and launch a national immunization campaign for children between 9 months to 15 years of age by 2013,” Tjandra said.

‘Rail Surfers’ to be Stink Bombed Indonesia has another bizarre way to keep commuters off the roofs of trains: swat them with brooms drenched in putrid goop. “For anyone who is still up there, it’ll be like a whip,” said Ahmad Sujadi, of the state-run railway, PT Kereta Api Indonesia. The contraptions will be installed at select crossings this week. Indonesia has tried just about everything to keep passengers from clamoring atop trains that crisscross its main island of Java: spraying them with paint guns, calling in sniffer dogs, and asking for help from Muslim clerics. The first tactic that worked was deployed last month. Grapefruit-sized concrete balls were suspended on chains from a frame that looks like a soccer goal. “Rail surfers,” realizing they could be knocked in the head or even killed, quickly called it quits. The concrete balls however can only be suspended over non-electric tracks. Buoyed by their success, railway officials decided to try the stink bombs. They’ll be set up along the line linking the capital, Jakarta, and the West Java town of Bogor. Sujadi, who didn’t disclose the ingredients of the smelly goop, said he was unaffected by criticism for all the strange and strict security measures. “Some people say it’s inhumane, but that’s fine,” he said. “Letting them ride on the roofs is even more inhumane.” Hundreds have clamored to the roofs in the past because they want to escape overcrowded carriages, can’t afford the price of a ticket, or, simply, for fun. But dozens are killed or injured every year, falling off the train or being electrocuted by the power lines above. (February 6th 2012)

Ngurah Rai Airport Targeted to Accommodate 25 Million Passengers - Land Restrictions Ngurah Rai Airport Bali has been targeted to accommodate 25 million passengers per year at the completion of the current renovations. General Manager of Angkasa Pura I Ngurah Rai Airport Bali, Mr. Purwanto said on Tuesday (7/2) that the visitors to Ngurah Rai Airport Bali in 2011 had reached 12.7 million people while airport the capacity is only 12 million people per year. “It is extraordinary difficult for us to manage the current renovations with only 294 hectares of land. It is very tight, as ideally we should have 1,000 hectares. It will be very difficult to manage two runways,” said Purwanto.

Air NZ Restarts Bali Route Air New Zealand will start flying direct to the popular holiday spot Bali from Auckland twice a week during the June to October high season. The service using a Boeing 767-300 has the potential to operate year round if there’s sufficient demand, the airline says. Chief executive Rob Fyfe said Bali was a popular destination for Kiwis and the non-stop service would make it more accessible. Fares and schedules would be announced ahead of tickets going on sale on February 23. The flight time of eight and a half hours compared to at least 14 hours on competing indirect services, Fyfe said. Air New Zealand last operated services between Auckland to Bali in the 1990s (February 3rd 2012) RI Govt to Send 10,750 Child Workers to School in 2012 The Indonesian government will send some 10,750-child workers back to school in 2012, an increase of 300 percent from last year’s 3,360 children. The child workers are from 84 districts in 21 provinces, the manpower and transmigration ministry’s Manpower Supervision and Development Director General Muji Handaya said here on Tuesday (14/2). The ministry has intensified efforts to remove children working in industries in order to reduce child labor, according to officials. Under the program of Child Labor Reduction to support the Prospective Family Program (PPA-PKH) 2012, 11,213 children had been removed from employment and were largely sent back to school during the years 2008 to 2011. In 2008, some 4,853 children were removed from employment in 48 districts and cities in seven provinces, but only 1,523 children, or 32 percent, returned to school. “For 2012, the target is to pull out 10,730 child workers in 21 provinces and 84 districts and cities throughout Indonesia,” Muji said. The provinces are South Sulawesi, East Nusa Tenggara, Jakarta, Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, West Java, East Java, Bali, Central Java,

Pilots should be tested for drugs a few hours or days before they fly, rather than undergoing the routine testing every six months as they do now, Indonesia’s transportation minister said Monday (13/2). Testing them every six months may not be effective because drug users could prepare for the tests, Minister Evert Ernest Mangindaan said. The ministry is revising regulations after the arrests of three pilots and a co-pilot from budget airline Lion Air since September for using illicit drugs. The arrests have raised concern over security and safety in aviation, a main mode of travel in this sprawling nation of 17,000 islands. Lion Air pilot Syaiful Salam was arrested Feb. 4 three hours before he was to fly a plane. Authorities said he had a small amount of crystal methamphetamine, known locally as “Shabu-shabu.” Another colleague was arrested in South Sulawesi in January, and a pilot and co-pilot were caught with Shabu-shabu and ecstasy pills last September, two months before the airline signed the biggest order ever from Boeing - 230 planes with a list price of $21.7 billion. Last week, a co-pilot failed a random drug test at Jakarta’s airport and three others failed to show up for the testing, transportation ministry officials said, without identifying them.

Furthermore he said the National Education Ministry welcomes the program to reduce child labor and provides scholarships for them. The scholarships are available for 3.6 million elementary students, 1.3 million junior high school students, 315,000 vocational school students and 386,000 senior high school students. The education ministry also offers scholarships for 30,000 senior high school graduates seeking to enter university. According to ILO News, child labor remains a significant problem in Indonesia. The 2010 National Child Labor Survey reported that 4 million children are working and 1.7 million of them are child laborers participating in work that harms their wellbeing, their safety and their capacity to benefit from normal schooling. To tackle child labor, the Government of Indonesia designed a National Action Plan on the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labor. (February 14th 2012)

You’ve probably seen the word JAMU hundreds of times in your everyday life in Bali – on spa menus, advertisements and at the local apotek. But do you really know what Jamu is? The simple answer is, it’s Indonesian traditional medicine made from herbs that comes in the form of a drink, pill, capsule or even a paste. The skin is the largest organ of the body, so anything that is applied on the skin and left to absorb, enters into the blood stream. Centuries ago, long before aspirin or antibiotics were developed, the indigenous people of Indonesia were using plants for healing. But with the influence of Chinese, Indian and Arab cultures, the tradition grew into a fine art. The Jamu culture reached a pinnacle during the Majapahit Kingdom in Central Java, when the now famous beauty treatments were created in the kraton. But after the arrival of Islam to Java, the Hindus fled to Bali, bringing their books, culture and customs. Surviving in the Surakarta Palace Library is the best ancient reference on Jamu called Serat Kawruuhbab Jampi-Jampi (A Treatise on All Manner of Cures). Within are, 1,734 formulae made from natural ingredients, with information on use plus many stories about the daily use of jamu. Traditionally, it’s always been the women who prepared the jamu. In Java, as part of a marriage trousseau, a bride was given a beautifully decorated square or pyramid shaped wooden box with many drawers full of medicinal herbs. A wife was expected to not only care for her family, but also to heal their illness. Making jamu is a very time consuming task, usually prepared each morning, but with more women now going out to work, no one has time to prepare jamu. For many years, the gendong has filled this role of supplying people with their daily jamu. She gets up early each morning to make her brew, often with the help of family members. After filling several large bottles with favourite concoctions, she fills a large basket, straps it on her back and trundles off with her heavy load to administer to her regular clients. Now, often you will see a gendong on a bicycle or even a motorbike. Today, I saw one with a large wooden box attached to her motorbike, stocked with several large bottles and a small pharmacy of sachets of various cures. During the war for independence, western medicine was in short supply, leaving doctors to turn to traditional medicine, converting many of the doctors into accepting jamu as an effective medicine. Recently, the Ministry of Health in Indonesia has started to push for jamu to be used as the first medical treatment before Western medicine. Maybe soon, we can go to a doctor and get a prescription for jamu rather than antibiotics. There are more than 300 different jamus for a wide range of cures from arthritis, cancer and diabetes to enhancing sexual performance using hundreds of plants. Most jamu makers use a standard 100 plants, however, the mainstay of many concoctions are seven herbs, all coming from the ginger or Zingiberaceae family. They are: turmeric (kunir, curcuma domestica), greater galangal (lengkuas), resurrection lily (kencur), bitter ginger (lempuyang pahit), lempuyang wangi, temu lawak, (neither has an English name) and common ginger (jahe). Used for 2500 years throughout India, China and South East Asia for cooking and medicine; turmeric curcuma is known as a wonder herb, with scientists taking an avid interest in this golden herb in the last few decades. It has long been known for its antiinflammatory properties but recent research has shown that it’s beneficial for the treatment of many diseases from arthritis to cancer. Turmeric is also known as antibacterial and antiseptic, making it a traditional remedy for cuts and wounds. Recently, I was peeling turmeric to make some jamu and sliced my thumb open. The bleeding wouldn’t stop and then I suddenly remembered that it’s effective in stopping bleeding. I sliced off a piece of turmeric and held it against the cut and within a few minutes the bleeding stopped. I wish I’d known that, years ago! Turmeric is also a liver detoxifier, helps to heal inflamed skin problems and may be effective in preventing cancer. This miracle herb is the main ingredient of the most popular jamu health drink Kuyit Asem, which is drunk daily by millions of Indonesians. The benefits of this drink are blood cleaner, health tonic and helps in slimming. And you can drink as much as you like because unlike

western medicine, jamu is completely safe and you cannot overdose. The heart of Jamu is in Central Java, where many companies have gone into the production of jamu, packaging over a hundred blends into small sachets of powder, pills, capsules and skin care products. Some companies are exporting their jamu internationally, having undergone the rigors of government testing, which were set up in 1980 to standardize jamu. That hasn’t been easy with a multitude of various blends and the herbs having different values according to where they were grown. However, a ruling in the late 1990’s to restrict the essential ingredients to 5 has simplified the testing. The five major jamu companies are Nyonya Meneer, Mustika Ratu, Jamu Jago, Air Mancur and Martina Berto. Dr. Martha Tilaar is the giant in skin care products under the names of Sari Ayu and the popular Biokos, which is found in many spas in Bali. With over a hundred different types of jamu, the most common formulas rejuvenate health, improve the skin complexion, slimming, reducing cholesterol, cleaning the blood and a variety of sexual enhancement potions, being some of the most popular. This may seem strange in a primarily Islamic country, but there is logic to this. As you know, Muslim men are allowed to marry up to four wives - he has to stay strong to please his women. Here in Bali, the healing knowledge was inscribed on palm leaves, known as Utama, which was considered sacred and passed down from generation to generation. Up until about twenty years ago, all Balinese families had a garden with herbs growing for medicine. Nobody needed to buy these herbs, everyone was willing to share. In Bali, the use of herbs has been for healing rather than beauty. Unless you are lucky enough to have a local gendong making the rounds near your home, as there are very few in Bali, you can find jamu in many apoteks, supermarkets, local markets, jamu shops or small stands. I stopped by a jamu shop in Canggu to browse around and was told that about fifty people a day drop in to buy jamu, either by the glass or packets of powder. That sounds like a thriving business. Spas are in the health business and many offer their guests a cup of Kunyit Asem jamu or a cup a ginger tea, which settles the stomach and is good for health. Jamu Traditional Spa was the first spa to use traditional Indonesian treatments in Bali since 1988 serving international travelers. They started a trend, using jamu based products, which has led Bali into the limelight of the world of spas. Lulur and Boreh are now common treatments to be found on a spa menu here and internationally. I recently attended a jamu class in Ubud at Bali Herb Walks run by Ibu Lilir and her husband Westi. They guide you on a journey through the fields familiarizing you with plants that are used in Balinese herbal healing followed by the jamu class. Lilir came from a family of ten children, but because her parents couldn’t afford to raise all of the children, Lilir was sent to live with the priest, who was also the local healer. He taught her to identify the plants and how to use them, being his assistant. She quickly became an expert herself, with a keen interest in the plants. Seventeen years ago, she and her husband started the Bali Herb Walks to teach others about the plants and to preserve the knowledge of traditional medicine. Nowadays, many of the rice fields have been replaced with villas and the younger generation has no interest in traditional medicine, preferring to go to the doctor. Lilir is striving to keep the tradition alive by running a shop, where she sells her homemade natural products and teaches classes on making jamu. She was approached by government officials to see if she qualified to be in a national competition. The requirements: organic farming, respect for the environment and respect for people. She won first place in Bali and went to Jakarta to win fourth place as the only woman in the competition called Sivakara Nugraha Anugrah Riset & Tehnologi in August 2011. The class was fun learning to make jamu and very informative. I learned to make Kunyit Asem drink for health, boreh body scrub for relieving aching muscles, floral hair and body oil and Aloe Vera and corn face and body mask. I also learned about the medicinal benefits of all of the herbs

TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

the lives of native plantation workers. Mirah of Banda is the view from the bottom up, an engrossing eye-witness account of the life of a nutmeg picker and mistresses (nyai) of a Dutchman. Coming from Java, Bali and Timor, female pickers were surrounded by men who would either propose to them or rape them. The bosses welcomed the birth of offspring because then they wouldn’t have to pay fares for new workers on the KPM pocket steamers that stopped in the Bandas on their way from Ambon to Dobo. The dramatic thrust of this book is Mirah’s story, made even more stark by the carefree opening chapters which chronicle a seemingly endless holiday outing to the Banda Islands. One fifth of the way into the book there is an abrupt shift from an omnipresent third person narrative to Mira’s harrowing early life. The tone and the language take on a somber cast as the young and innocent girl grows and matures. Relating events through the blameless eyes of a child, the reader must interpret young girl’s impressions and sensations to try to understand what is happening. Five-year-old Mirah was kidnapped from Java, along with her older cousin, and taken to the Banda islands where she first works as a servant in the estate of a Dutch owner (Tuan Besar), then as a contract nutmeg picker and finally, when his wife leaves him, is forced to become the owner’s concubine with whom she bears two children. The fate of her daughter, Lili, taken away to be a comfort woman by Japanese soldiers, is a heartbreaking side story. Over one night Mirah narrates the story of her life to an Australian woman of Eurasian background, Wendy, who is visiting the holiday home of Indonesian friends on Bandaneira where Mirah is working as a cook. A strong unspoken connection is felt by both women and a bond develops that brings some light back into Mirah’s tragic life. The nostalgia environment of Banda’s 300-year-old nutmeg plantations that had once been “so beautifully green and shady, fragrant and alive with birds” and the graceful old estate houses “with chandeliers tinkling in the sea breeze” is palpable. One can feel the extreme sense of isolation living in these distant miniscule islands that have played such a pivotal role in Indonesian history. The author possesses a deep sense of the scope and irony of Banda’s history - the waves of immigrants, colonizers and conquerors. Until the Japanese invasion of the Indies, few dates or other historical markers are provided in the text. We only hear of approaching war on Tuan Besar’s radio. The gay parties suddenly cease, the nutmeg business

Mirah of Banda by Hanna Rambe In recent years there have been dozens of m e m o i r s written by aging Dutch excolonialists about their lives in the late colonial era, through the J a p a n e s e occupation and post independence periods, but much fewer have been published from the Indonesian perspective. Even rarer are portraits of


falls into quick decline, and fear sweeps through Bandaneira and the island’s coastal communities. Rambe explores the fleeting nature of political and temporal power and the transitoriness of life in writing of the generations of families who have settled, prospered, suffered and died amid the fragrance of the island’s nutmeg trees, the rigid racial stratification that was in force at the time, the vulnerability of female workers, the imperiousness of the overseers (marinyo) and estate owners where their every command or whim could change the course of a contract worker’s life. The writing is simple, honest and unpretentious. The author’s sharp eye for character, landscapes, buildings and anecdotes presents an indelible true-to-life picture. There is a straightforward chronicle of the murder of indigenous Bandanese, the destruction of Bandanese society, a history of the perkenier planters who replaced the native planters, and marvelous descriptions of the decrepit ruins of old mansions accompanied by plentiful architectural details. Embedded throughout the novel are historical, geographic, botanical and ethnographic facts; Bandanese cultural terms, details of local cuisine, human settlement patterns, historical events and natural disasters afflicting the Bandas, along with meticulous horticultural information on how to plant nutmeg seedlings and what medicinal herbs are best suited to treat specific ailments! Born in 1940, Hanna Rambe is an Indonesian mystery novelist, biographer and journalist. In the mid-1960s, she entered the Literature Department at the University of Indonesia. In the 1970s, Rambe worked as a free-lance journalist, a copyeditor at the Indonesian Observer newspaper, a translator and reporter for Indonesia Raya and a contributor to Intisari and Mutiara magazines. Her work as a journalist provided her the opportunity to travel and her journeys provided inspiration and ample material for her stories. Her background as a disciplined journalist influenced the style of her writing, carrying out in-depth research on a subject before taking pen to paper. When preparing Mirah of Banda, Rambe lived for a month in Banda tramping through nutmeg plantations, jotting down observations and interviewing pickers about the lives of their forbears.

Letters To Bali Advertiser In Love with the Bali Police I’m from Europe: Switzerland. Since 26 years ago when I was the first time here, I’ve fallen completely in love with Bali. I also liked among other things, the friendly and humorous behavior of the Bali police.The encounters with them are always special. Now, I’m here once again and I’ve installed in the front of my bike, Jalona Rangda a wellknown goddess here in Bali. I like the story of her and her expressive face and then, to drive around with funny.

The result is a first-hand, ground level account of what life was like in the remote Outer Moluccas in between the wars. The historical narrative serves as a backdrop to the main character’s life story in which she is buffeted about and subjugated, gripped in the overpowering hands of fate. But in spite of all her painful experiences, the author never allows the story to descend into vapid and saccharine melodrama that permeates so many Indonesian novels of the period. By the end of the book, the all-seeing narrator takes over again, letting us in on what had happened to Lili and treating us to a surprise ending.

Soon I could see that people here are actually all very pleased with my performance. Also including the police. I had several encounters with them and sometimes I forgot my helmet and were stopped by them. All the meetings with them have ended up in friendly conversations and I didn’t have to pay a fine. The police in Europe react very cold-hearted, just like robots. With them it’s hard to enjoy personal entertainment. With the police here already done, any time possible. They are more human people, not machines like in the western world. So then: many thanks for everything to the Bali police and have a pleasant new year.

Bali’s verdant rice terraces are an ancient and sacred landscape. After about 1200 years of continuous cultivation they are now in jeopardy from the twin threats of development and environmental degradation. Ironically, Bali’s traditional agriculture is the cause of its own destruction. The very people who come to admire the classic rice terraces often stay to build houses and hotels on them, taking limited agricultural land out of production forever. “The development of Bali’s rice fields is a big, complex, emotional issue,” says Pande Putu, a young artist and environmental activist from Kintamani. “There are huge social impacts on the families that sell their land. The money is soon gone, and the farmers have no other skills. They are under a lot of stress after the money from the land sale is spent; with no money and no land, they struggle hard to make ends meet. “Before, there was not much friction or jealousy in Balinese society. Now, it’s very competitive. Those who don’t want to sell are conflicted. Families are split -- the elders want to keep the land, the young people often want to sell.”

The subject of Bali’s disappearing rice fields is also a growing concern for scholars. For decades, Dr Stephen Lansing has made an intense study of the history, culture and organization of Bali’s traditional rice production system. Professor of Anthropology and Adjunct Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona, Steve has not only produced many books, papers and documentaries on the subject but has immersed himself deeply in Bali’s soul -- its subak system.

“This is a time of great conflict over land. Rice fields are the heart of Ubud. If we sell our hearts, we will just be machines.” “A subak is an area where all the farmers share water from the same source,” he explains. “Bali’s subaks are very old; information about Bali’s subak system has been recorded for over a thousand years.”

Pande Putu and two other artists created their installation piece NOT FOR SALE in a rice field in Jungjungan north of Ubud in February 2011. “People don’t speak up or complain in Balinese culture, so the sign was considered really brani (brave) for the local people,” he observes. “They were surprised that we did it. We expected some negative feedback, but apart from complaints from a government official to the land owner it has nothing but support.”

“This is a time of great conflict over land. Rice fields are the heart of Ubud. If we sell our hearts, we will just be machines.” Pande Putu harnesses the power of social media to raise awareness of social issues with about 3,000 mostly rural young Balinese on FaceBook. “The young people are starting to become aware of the land issue, they are starting to talk about it. Young Balinese use FaceBook a lot. There’s conflict in the young generation too. They like working in tourism but some of them want to keep the land as well.” His posts make statements about stopping the tour buses and the exploitation of Ubud, and the ripple effect of FaceBook spreads the word ever further. A Cree proverb is posted on his bilingual website After all the trees have been cut down After all the rivers have poisoned After all the fish have been caught It is then that money cannot be eaten He also uses his influence to encourage young Balinese to stay in school, and creates projects to enhance their self confidence and help them value their culture and traditions. These are small, heartfelt projects that connect the young people with their heritage in the subak. In the rice fields of Junjungan the children become tourists in their own banjar -- fishing, hunting dragon flies, flying kites and other traditional activities that are falling by the wayside as young people are seduced by modern lifestyles. He wants to make a video about the voice of the farmers, their dayto-day lives, the changes in Ubud and the impacts of tourism.

This highly interdependent system worked perfectly until the so-called Green Revolution that started in the 1960s mandated that all farmers had to plant the newly introduced hybrid rice for higher yields. Ignoring traditional temple planting schedules, the new system decreed that crops be planted continually using artificial fertilizers and pesticides. As a result, Bali’s once-fertile rice terraces have lost their topsoil, local fauna and fertility. A recent trend back to traditional cultivation techniques is ironically resisted by farmers who believe that rice can’t be grown without chemicals. When asked how their grandfathers farmed, they look blank. Apart from the fertility issue, rice fields are disappearing at warp speed under an alarming number of villas and hotels. Governor Pastika’s gallant efforts to enforce existing laws and harness the greed of officials who want a big piece of the very lucrative development pie are meeting resistance in every regency. “Who are we, as foreigners, to tell people not to sell their land?” asks Stephen. “Most kids these days don’t want to be farmers. Foreigners are largely the cause of the high rate of conversion, and the irrigation water is diverted to serve their needs. Building in subaks interferes with water distribution. The subak systems are collapsing; farmers are no longer planting in synchronicity. It’s a wonder the subak system has survived so far. This is not a big island.”

He was surprised at the strong response to the installation. Most of the locals like it, as do the tourists. Its picture has appeared in Hello Bali, Kompas and Radar Bali. The artists had originally intended to burn the installation after three months, but it’s has become an icon. They’re happy that it met their goal of raising awareness about the land issue. “It was just a statement, but if more people -- farmers, their kids, those of us who love Ubud -- sit down together and bring our voices together, change may happen. We need more people to be concerned, and brave enough to say something.

exhausted after hundreds of years of constant use had it not been for Balinese farmers’ ability to replenish the nutrients of the soil. Traditional fertilizers rely primarily on ash, decaying organic matter and cow manure. The irrigation waters of the crater lakes are naturally rich in mineral nutrients. The farmers also followed a cropping system where dry and wet crops were rotated with a fallow season.

It’s a small, fragile island of small, family-owned, traditional rice farms in the 21st century. What will be the tipping point? The crater lake at Mount Batur has always been considered a sacred mandala of Dewi Danu, the Goddess of the Lake. From ancient times, delegations of priests and farmers from each subak would come to the lake to collect holy water to take back to their villages, and share irrigation schedules that would ensure each subak would have enough water. This synchronized harvest system not only distributed the water fairly, but had the added advantage of providing effective pest management. Because all the fields were planted and harvested together and the farmers knew the pest migration patterns, they flooded their fields at the same time to starve the insects and rats.

Putu Pande’s family owns 35 are of sawah and -- believe me -- that rice field is not for sale.

This system required a high level of cooperation between distant subaks. Steve explores these complex relationships in his fascinating book ‘Priests and Programmers’ (available at Ganesha bookshop) which compares contemporary computer models of the ancient systems with traditional practices.

It’s a wonder the subak system has survived so far. This is not a big island The island’s vast and complex irrigation system was documented in detail. Lontar inscriptions dating from the 9th century refer to irrigation tunnels kilometers long cut through volcanic stone to bring water to remote subaks. Some of these tunnels, known since the 12th century, are still functioning today and tunnels are still being excavated using traditional techniques. The development of wet-rice agriculture was fostered by an abundance of water and fertile soil, and this fertility of the land has long been evoked as an explanation for Bali’s prodigious yields. Still, even the most fertile fields would have been

INDIA OPENS NEW CONSULATE AT BALI During the State Visit of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia to India during January 2011, the Prime Minister of India and the President of Indonesia agreed to establish the Consulate General of India in the Province of Bali to reinforce the strong cultural links between Indonesia and India. In pursuance of the agreement, India has now opened the new Consulate in Bali since 18 January 2012. Shri A.S. Takhi, who was formerly with the Embassy of India in Jakarta, has assumed charge as the Consul General. The consular district of the Consulate General of India in Bali comprises Bali, Lombok, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara, Maluku, Irian Jaya (West Papua), East Kalimantan and South Kalimantan. On the occasion of the 63rd Republic Day of India, a Flag Hoisting Ceremony was held at the Consulate premises on 26 January 2012. The Indian community members and the PIOs, who attended the event, greatly appreciated Government of India’s decision to operationalize the new Consulate in Bali.

SCHEDULE THAT Bali Spirit Festival (28 March – 1 April) I love the description of this festival, a vibrant and uplifting festival of yoga, dance and music which awakens and nourishes each individual’s potential for positive change, within, leading to positive change in our homes, in our communities, and around the world. This really is what this festival is about, bringing like minded people together from around the world in a big celebration. Now in its fifth year, the festival has gone from strength to strength, building and supporting the community within the context of global music, yoga and dance. The founders have also donated funds to community projects including Bumi Sehat and the Pelangi Community School. A HIV/AIDS awareness programme was also introduced in 2010. There are all sorts of passes to choose from at various prices with the VIP Festival Pass giving you access to all the day time workshops and night music concerts. There are also early bird discounts available. You can purchase your pass on-line. Everyone is encouraged to come along and celebrate the richness of culture, the environment and the harmony between people of all nations. Cost : from USD90 – USD750 Where : Day time venue - Purnati Center for the Arts, Batuan. Night time venue- Agung Rai Museum of Arts (ARMA) Contact : 0857 11587822

Eat Pray Doula (12 – 19 March) I’m going to include this for anyone interested in child birth and becoming a certified doula. Doula stems from the Greek word meaning ‘woman servant or caregiver’ and now refers to an experienced person who offers emotional and practical support to a woman or couple before, during and after childbirth. The demand for doulas is increasing worldwide and not surprisingly. This workshop offers the opportunity to learn how to care for women, men, babies and families at this special time in their life through pregnancy, labor, birth and breastfeeding. The programme also includes morning yoga and some cultural exploration and experiences. Debra Pascali-Bonaro an experienced doula trainer will lead the sessions together with Robin Lim and Katherine Bramhall. I’m sure this will attract a international group but I love the fact that so many diverse opportunities are on offer here in Bali and this is such an amazing opportunity to learn how to contribute to what is so important, new life itself. Workshop fees, accommodation, breakfast and lunch are included. Accommodation is at the very lovely Swasti Eco Cottage in Ubud. There’s more information on the website where applications can be submitted. Cost : USD2,000 Contact :

Gunung Leuser National Park (23 – 26 March) This is a wonderful getaway for the Nyepi break, a trip into the wild at the UNESCO world heritage park. Four days and three

nights of camping, trekking, hiking and rafting. The trip also includes opportunities to see the Sumatran tigers and elephants. You’ll need to book quickly if you are interested in this amazing adventure as the closing date is 24 February and places are limited to 20. The price also includes a return flight on Garuda, 2 nights accommodation, food, permits and transportation as well as the activities. All you need to be is fit and healthy. This really sounds like a one off opportunity to see the interior of Sumatra which is a stunning place. Cost : IDR 5,000,000 Contact : 9600916 081210664200

The Ogoh-Ogoh (Monster) Festival (22 March) Nyepi is one of my favourite times of year and this Balinese celebration is so unique to Bali. I often wish we could adopt it in other countries. A day of peace and quiet, with none of the stresses and strains of a typical working day. I love the Ogoh-Ogoh parades and the whole reason behind Nyepi and in today’s world there are certainly plenty of evil spirits in need of scaring away. The Ramayana hotel has organized an Ogoh-Ogoh festival on the eve of Nyepi. There will be an East meets West buffet dinner including a welcome cocktail and a bottle of beer. Kuta always has a great Ogoh-Ogoh parade too. The Nyepi hotel packages don’t usually include the first night’s meal so this is a good option if you are staying in or near the area. Cost : IDR299,000 or IDR499,000 Where : Gabah Bar and Restaurant, Complex Kuta Sidewalk, Kartika Plaza Street, Kuta Contact : 751864

Raw Food Culinary Academy (2 – 20 April) As we get more health conscious and recognise the importance of healthy eating, raw foods are becoming increasingly popular and this course is an excellent introduction to what raw foods are all about and the benefits. The programme focuses on vegan food preparation and the theory behind living a natural, healthy lifestyle which I am sure will help combat and even eliminate so many of the diseases that plague our

By Dawn Chorus

bodies due to poor diet and nutrition. The academy believes that the foundation of a healthy diet should be based around a low glycemic, high plant food diet that promotes healing. Classes include gourmet, raw food preparation. The lectures incude the Wellness Revolution, the truth about fats, proteins, weight loss and how to work out what foods your body needs for optimum health and they will also show you how to put all this into your daily life and schedule. You can register on-line at their website. If you use the discount code Healthy Living you’ll get 2 free massages, a sauna and a free gift. If you register before 1st March you will receive a discount on the course fee and accommodation. This sounds like an excellent opportunity to learn more about raw foods and make a dietary change for the better. Cost

: Level 1 USD 1,599 + USD 250 accommodation Level 2 USD 3,099 + USD 500 accommodation Where : Gaia Retreat Center, Jl Sriwedari No 5, Tegallantang, Ubud Contact : 972312 info@gaia

Sound of Life (26 February) I think that the whole of Bali is so very proud of the achievements of this remarkable women, Ibu Robin Lim who founded Yayasan Bumi Sehat, an organisation that provides health services for pregnant women and children under five, for free in the Ubud area. Now, CNN Hero of the year Robin will be honoured in a special celebratory dinner. Guests that are said to be attending include Bali’s Governor, Made Mangku Pastika and Badung Regent Anak Agung Gede Agung. A portion of the proceeds from food and drinks and funds raised through a live auction will be donated to the clinic. This is a wonderful chance to join in this celebration and mark the achievements of Robin and her organisation that strive to ensure that women in Ubud and the surrounding area receive the care they need at such an important time of their lives. You can also go to their website to find out more about what they do and of course donations are also needed and welcome. Tickets for this event are on sale at Surfer Girl, Havaianas and Rip Curl. Cost : IDR2,500,000 book of 10 tickets Where : Waterbomb Park, Jl Kartika, Tuban Contact : 755676 ext 10

Trivia Night (Wednesdays) It’s been quite a long time since there has been a pub quiz in the Seminyak area and for the long term residents, I’m sure you have fond memories of the quiz at Kura Kura which was a huge success drawing a large crowd of expats and locals every Wednesday. It is great news for those who enjoy a pub quiz and live locally to have a new trivia night similar to the popular trivia night at Arena, Sanur. There are two sets of twenty questions and a bonus round. Prizes include a jug of margaritas and beers. Quiz fans are going to love this evening and I will definitely be there each Wednesday. Come along with your team for a great night of fun and trivia. When : 8 pm Where : Arena Pub and Café, Jl Raya Kerobokan No 88 Contact :8475092

The Demise of the Seaweed Farmers at Geger Beach A Sad Story By Ines Wynn

On a lovely swathe of beach in Nusa Dua is a quiet cove that is known as Geger Beach. The sands are pristine white, the water crystal clear, gaily painted little fishing skiffs float on the water close to the shoreline, which is wide and not crowded. The south end of the beach is edged by a rocky promontory on which stands the village temple Pura Geger. It juts out into the deep-blue sea, reaching to the reef beyond and seems to protect the beach, diverting strong currents along its stony fingers to bypass the quiet waters in the alcove. For years it has been one of the secret spots long favored by beachgoers in the know, surfers, beach combers and joggers. Part of the attraction is the daily activities of the local seaweed farmers who raise and harvest their crop in the old traditional ways in the quiet alcove protected by the rocky outcrop. There they have simple frames set up, submerged in the water, and it is in these enclosures, made from short bamboo stakes planted in the sandy bottom of the sea to form a rectangular cage, with nylon rope strung between the stakes, that they grow a type of green seaweed called Eucheuma cottonii. Whereas various types of green, red and brown seaweed grow abundantly in Indonesian waters, the green seaweed is the most extensively cultured in Bali and fetches the highest price in the market. It can be harvested on a regular, self sustaining basis which makes it a dependable supply and renewable resource. Labor expenses are low since seaweed farming is mostly a small and family-oriented endeavor. The initial investment is low because not much is needed to start this business: some new seed stock, bamboo stakes and nylon lines, gathering baskets and some basic tools such as knives and axes. Seedlings are tied at 20cm intervals on the lines, about 5 plants per running meter. The average length of the lines is 200 meters strung around the stakes, so each cage or enclosure can hold up to 1000 seedlings. As the seaweed grows, it forms floating trailers and these are cut off and dried on racks, leaving the original seedlings to grow new trailers. No boats are used. Harvested seaweed is collected in big round bamboo baskets. Farmers can wade in the water and plant and harvest when the tide is low. A barrier of netting around the cages is used to protect the harvest from sea critters like fish and turtles who like to nibble on seaweed as a food source. Seaweed grows best in intertidal zones in sandy bottoms with coral fragments, with stable salinity and reasonable wave action, ideally in a lagoon inside a coral reef where the crop is protected from strong currents and waves. Geger Beach is an ideal location and the cultivation of seaweed as an alternative source of income has replaced over-fishing and destruction of the coral reefs previously endangering the survival of marine life. Collecting seaweed in Bali has been going on since ancient times but only in the last 30 years has it become much more of an organized and focused economic activity, due, in part, to the government’s efforts to eradicate coral-damaging fishing activities, the most extreme of which is dynamite fishing. In addition, because seaweed farming is much less investment heavy than traditional fishing which requires the purchase and maintenance of fishing boats, fuel, etc., and the relative ease of marketing the seaweed, this form of mariculture has found enthusiastic participants in the traditional fishing villages of Bali, especially where lagoons or naturally protected environments favor the grow-out of crops like at Geger Beach. In contrast to many other Indonesian islands, Bali is an ideal

environment for seaweed cultivation thanks to its readily accessible coastal sites, available labor, developed transportation and market network. Cottonii seaweed has been an abundant crop in the waters of Geger Beach, providing a comfortable living to a host of local families. Seaweed cultivation is a lucrative business and a high yielding investment. It requires few facilities and very little equipment, although it is labor-intensive. The seaweed is easy to grow, does not require fertilizer applications to sustain production, is free of disease and pest damage, and the entire crop is bought up by seaweed manufacturers so there are no transportation costs or marketing expenses. The manufacturers further process the raw, dried seaweed and the majority is exported to Europe, USA, Japan and other Asian countries. Seaweed is an eagerly sought-after product that has many uses. As a food and medicinal product it is appreciated because it is high in iodine, calcium and potassium. Besides the healthy notions it conjures up as a food staple in Japan, it finds its way into many other products, such as cosmetics, lotions and creams, household products, flavorings for chips and crackers, medicines and diet products (remember Spirulina?) and as a gelling agent for the refreshing dessert jellos, the traditional Balinese sweets like jaga bulung and the staple agar-agar extensively used in Asian kitchens. It is also used as a fertilizer and in industrial products like paint. The most important extract from seaweed is a solidifying agent used in jams, jellies, lotions and medicines. It is the thickening and jelling agent and stabilizer used in toothpaste and ice cream. According to r e s e a r c h conducted by the University of Queensland’s Department of Economics, o r g a n i z e d seaweed farming in Bali was already well established by the early 1980s. In 1988 a total of 8,366 tons was exported. By 2010 according to other sources, the volume had increased to 150,000 tons. Seaweed is now 4th in terms of exported volume, after shrimp, tuna and other fish. At the beginning of 2011, according to Wikipedia, the entire output of Indonesia was 3 million tons of seaweed and surpassed the Philippines as the world’s largest seaweed producer. It is estimated that the production will hit 10 million tons by 2012. Bali takes the lead in seaweed cultivation because of advantages like superior seedling quality and availability, suitable coastal sites, developed transportation and marketing network. Bali seedlings are famous and sold to farmers in other seaweed cultivation areas of Indonesia. The best and most productive places for seaweed cultivation in Bali are Geger Beach, Turtle Island, and the narrow strait between Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan. The small area of Geger beach by itself produces 1 to 2 tons of seaweed per month, depending upon the season, the dry season between April and November producing the better quality seaweed. Traditionally, Geger beach has supported more than 100 seaweed farmer families in the adjoining villages of Perminge and Sawangan. They are loosely grouped in a Kelompok Petani Rumput Laut Geger and sell their entire harvest to the local Seaweed Farmers Cooperative (Kooperasi Pertanian Rumput Laut) which acts as collector and middleman between the seaweed farmers and a Surabaya manufacturer who buys the entire seaweed crop from the Coop. Seaweed farming is essentially a family affair. Husband and wife, and sometimes the children when not in school, will work together to plant new seedlings, maintain the enclosures, harvest and dry the weed. Most families also employ one or two outside day workers, adding to the local economy and spreading the economic good fortune. One family farms an average of 200 running meters of seaweed. The grow-out cycle from newly planted seedling to harvest-ready seaweed is very short, only about 30 days. After the harvest is collected, it is dried on elevated racks away from the beach for 2 days

and then bundled for transport to the coop. New stock is grown from the initial seaweed seedlings and only now and then replaced by new seedling stock. Normally, the initial seedling will comfortably reproduce for about 10 years. Seaweed farming is economically an attractive investment due to its low startup costs and maintenance costs. The revenue per harvest is generous since the initial investment and the ongoing maintenance costs are very low. The government by way of the Departments of Agriculture and Fisheries supports the seaweed farmers by providing new seed stock if required and the few materials they need for building the enclosures, i.e. bamboo stakes and the nylon ropes to which the seedlings are attached. The monthly takehome pay for the farmers is about Rp. 3 million net per family which is a tidy sum for Bali. The market price is Rp.7000 – 8000 per kilo, determined by the manufacturer who buys the harvest. Considering the seaweed farmers spend about a half day on tending their crops, it is a high paying endeavor. So, what’s so sad about this story? The sobering fact is that the farmers’ entire livelihood is now being endangered due to a new mega-project development that is polluting the waters of the bay with the dust and runoff originating from the excavation of the limestone at the resort site close to the beach. The quality of the seaweed has been steadily going down for the last 5 months and the harvest is severely affected by the pollution. Already more than half of the seaweed farmers have stopped cultivation outright and are looking for jobs elsewhere. From the original 100 farmer members of the Kelompok Petani Rumput Laut Geger, barely 50 are still active. And they too, realize it is just a matter of time before they have to cease operation as well. Inevitably, the entire Geger seaweed cultivation site will be abandoned and another cultural and traditional part of Balinese society will be lost in this area. After construction is completed and even though the sea pollution may abate in time, the beach will become another artificial and sanitized enclave for the wealthy resort guests, stripped of all things natural to Bali and its culture. The seaweed farmers are receiving no compensation, relocation or retraining help, neither from the government, or the Indonesian conglomerate that is developing the mega resort on the Geger site. The developer’s CSR program is non-existent. It is sad and ironic that the concept of Bali as a paradise destination relies heavily on its promotion of and reliance on traditional ways of Balinese culture, besides beaches and an inspiring n a t u r a l environment. Yet, at the same time, the unbridled development and exploitation of its land, beaches and natural environment continue unabated and usurp and destroy many elements of Balinese culture in the process. Is it so difficult to find the middle road? Can development not live in harmony with Bali’s natural gifts? Is Bali doomed to compact and shrink-wrap its culture for degustation by resort tourist in the form of packaged day tours and dinner entertainment? Those questions are being voiced more and more all over Bali, and beg to be resolved. If traditional occupations such as seaweed cultivation disappear from Bali’s beaches, another tradition is lost. Would it not be a better solution to limit further development and thereby salvage colorful and interesting traditions like the seaweed farms? They, in turn, could provide another attraction for tourists visiting these shores, by showcasing one of Bali’s old and customary occupations. This, by far would be a better win-win solution than the present situation. Reference: Economic Returns from seaweed (Eucheuma cottonii) Farming in Bali, Indonesia by C. Firdausy and C.

Amed: Off the Tourist Map What other beach resort on Bali has no tourist office, no broadband internet access, no TV reception, no parking fees, no luxury goods or furniture store, not a single ATM or bank, where fishing jukung line the beach, motorbikes rent for Rp25,000 a day and straight-up roots reggae dominates the music scene? Ly i n g b e t w e e n Gunung Agung and the sea on the easternmost coast of Bali, the scattered string of villages called Amed, two and half hours out of Denpasar on Bali’s northeast coast, is a 10-km long strip of homestays, hotels, cafes, restaurants, shops, laundries, moneychangers and dive centers in one unbroken line amid trees on both sides of a gently winding road. The road we took that day from Amlapura to Amed was splendidly rural with small villages surrounded by forests, walls of vegetation, tiers of dry rice fields, and bamboo pens holding Bali’s indigenous swayback pigs. It was drizzling when we arrived at Villa Sinar Cinta on the northern outskirts of town. From our balcony on the second floor, sparrows swooped in all directions like miniature high-speed kites. Through coconut palms the white sky was riven with streaks of blue. Mosquitolegged fishing perahu skittered across the flat metal blue surface of the sea. Only five or six private, secure, self-enclosed villas like the Sinar Cinta, with natural surroundings and authentic Balinese atmosphere, are available for rent in such a remote area as Amed. For two days we played games, read books from a well-stocked library, drank fresh coconut just cut from the tree, or just enjoyed the quiet. Enclosed in its own yard, the garden is full of tropical plants, birds and butterflies. The mighty cone of Gunung Agung to the west looms over the whole area. When it’s clear you can see Gunung Rinjani on the island of Lombok across the strait. Like living in their own house, some guests don’t even leave the place. Why should they? The beds are comfortable, the breezes soothing, the views stunning and the never ending fish dinners, fresh fruit juices and banana pancakes turned out by Wayan are delicious. For nine months of the year Amed receives little rainfall and is very dry and brown but now in the rainy season the cassava gardens to the south side of the villa were green and thriving. Days can be very hot but the nights surprisingly cool to the point that you may need a thin blanket. The mostly Dutch, Belgian, German and French visitors have constant interaction with staff, the fishermen right out front and the neighborhood children. Kids play football and badminton in the adjacent parking lot at the end of the a road that is used for Nyepi’s ogoh-ogoh giant puppet parades and ceremonies during Kuningan. When Mita was collecting pretty stones and sea glass on the beach, an old fishermen told his three grandchildren to help her. The old man had never been to Denpasar. On Saturday evening we were invited to Cafe Pacha where the villa’s owner, Mary Afdan, performed onstage with the local reggae band to celebrate her birthday. That night we were regaled by Mary’s colorful renditions of popular English songs and Indonesian pop. Mary was also celebrating the completion of her new album, ‘Mary Berani!’ (Mary Dares!), an apt title for an artist who sings from the heart, deriving as much pleasure from delivering a swinging disco hit to belting out soul, reggae, jazz or blues.

plus songs in Japanese and Chinese. Who is this remarkable woman? Life and Career of Mary Afdan Mary was born, of a Javanese mother and Moluccan father, in the small country village of Hardenberg in the east of Holland in 1962. Her father had been a member of the Dutch Colonial Army (KNIL) and after Indonesia’s independence former KNIL soldiers and their families were forced out of Java when it fell under the control of Indonesia. In 1951, a total of 12,500 were transferred to the Netherlands where they were housed in provisional camps socially and physically isolated from Dutch society. Both the Indonesians and the Dutch government believed that the exiles would return in a couple of months, but it wasn’t until the end of the 1960s, while Mary was still a little girl, that the family emigrated to Java, moving eventually to the Kei Islands. Life was tough; at times Mary wore torn clothes and the family didn’t have enough to eat. One of her new songs is about a young girl in Saparua who keeps herself alive by singing for a living. This experience was torn from the pages of Mary’s own life. The family finally settled in Sorong in Papua in 1972. Mary’s musical life began at an early age when her father taught her to sing and play guitar in the church and in school choirs, winning several singing competitions. When her father passed away in 1983, Mary supported herself by making mosquito nets and giving guitar lessons to young children while she studied economics at university.

businesses. Salt making is still a significant source of income for the locals, but these family enterprises are now being eclipsed by the frenzied establishment of tourist-related businesses. The one industry that hasn’t changed is fishing. All the village’s boats have set out to sea by 5 am to fish for tuna and mackerel. For the best photograph over one of Amed’s jukung-lined beaches, climb the hill up to the Anda Amed Resort. Amed’s slightly greyish unprocessed salt crystals, only Rp20,000 per kilo at almost any roadside warung, are sweeter and more flavorful than most Indonesian sea salt, don’t leave a bitter taste, and make a great gift for people who love to cook. Salt panning takes place in the dry season. While still dark, workers head to the beach carrying a pole with two hanging zinc containers that look like sagging accordions. The women fill the containers with sea foam, froth and sea water, carry up to 50 kg of water on the back of their necks, then climb the wobbly ladder of the square, roofless, two-meter high stack of coconut trunks to the cone at the top, then pour the water in. Workers carry up to 500 liters of water per day. The salt museum at Hotel Uyah (see the Cafe Garam sign), the “Salt Hotel” in the center of Amed, displays photos, samples and equipment showing how traditional salt making is done. With the Bali Sea at your feet, there are any number of watery pursuits like going out with fishermen in the early mornings, getting a lift out to the reef on a jukung to spot dolphins, or just laying on the beach. Fifteen minutes drive to the south in Lipah is a small Japanese ship sunk in World War II; one half of the ship is still intact. The nice sandy black beach offers safe swimming for children and easy access to snorkeling. Further afield, walk to Amed village along the beach or through cassava gardens, hike in the nearby hills, rent a pushbike in the cooler hours of the morning or late afternoon, explore the coast on rented scooters, arrange a road trip to visit Bali’s premier dive center in Tulamben to the northwest or have lunch at the Tirtagangga Water Gardens or the Ujung Water Palace near Amlapura.

Mary arrived in Jakarta in 1989 where she performed with The Crown band in the nightclubs of Jakarta and Bandung. In 1991, the internationally acclaimed Jakarta live music venue Jaya Pub invited her to sing. When the Jaya Pub opened a branch in Kuta in 1992, Mary moved to Bali and on her own and in duet with other singers became the voice of Jaya Pub Bali during the Golden Years from 1992 to 1996 when south Bali enjoyed a vibrant nightlife. On saturday nights you could hardly walk through the crowds of tourists, expats and locals.

Amed is also an active trekking and eco tourism area. Aficionados claim that the sweet salak grown around Sibetan, 45 minutes away - Bali’s most prolific salak producing area - is incomparable. Known as the snakefruit because of its reddish-brown scaly skin, this variety of salak is called salak gula pasir. Pura Lempuyang temple sits gleaming white on the slopes of Gunung Lempuyang; access from Abang, north of Tirtagangga, by climbing the 1700 steps to the top.

At the end of 1995 Mary returned to Amsterdam where she continued to sing professionally at private parties and pasar malams. It was at this point that Mary started to compose her own Indonesian and English material, a tropical mix of Moluccan and Papua elements with a little dash of Dutch. Wanting to have a place of her own in her homeland, Mary built Villa Sinar Cinta in 2006 and opened it for guests in 2007. Located on its own stretch of beach, the family who formerly owned the land on which the villa sits is now involved in the it’s operation, maintenance, security and guest services. Guests can now wake at sunrise to accompany Putu to market for the day’s shopping, join Wayan in the kitchen to see how a Balinese meal is prepared from scratch, or hire Kadek to drive them to the exquisite Pasir Putih white sand beach, a 45-minute drive via Amlapura. Painted Jukung, Tasty Sea Salt, Unspoiled Coral Though tourism didn’t reach the Amed area until the mid1990s, by early 2012 every house seems to double as a cubby hole restaurant or homestay, creating an oversupply of some of the best accommodation deals on the island (Rp50,000 per night or Rp100,000 facing the sea). Family ties are still strong here and tradition prevails in everyday life. It’s not that uncommon that a hotel staff member will invite you home for a wedding, a cremation, a tooth filing ceremony or a sibling or cousin’s six-month-old-touching-of-the-ground ceremony.

Able to adapt her repertoire and clothing - even a Madonna act complete with blond wig - to suit any occasion, be it openings, presentations, private parties or cafés, Mary’s powerful voice can captivate an audience with a beautiful ballad like Imagine, then sweep them off their feet with Respect by Aretha Franklin or an ageless Tina Turner number. A The people along this coast make a meagre living out of dry birthday guest sitting next to me told me that she can also crops like peanuts, cassava, sweet potato, beans and corn. sing traditional Moluccan folk songs with modern arrangement Twenty years ago, the whole beach was lined with salt-making
