WERE YOU A WINNER OR A LOSER IN 2010? If I was asking this question at the end of 2008 I think most people would have fallen into the loser’s category through no fault of their own. That was the year many property markets tumbled, when global stock markets crashed and the less fortunate lost small fortunes in financial instruments guaranteed by the likes of Lehman Brothers. The value of savings and pension plans also took a beating. But 2009 saw a strong recovery, if only because global markets had fallen below fair value, a common scenario in which only the bold move in and take advantage. So what about 2010? Generally it was another year of slow recovery with some bright spots such as gold (up around 20% this year) and relatively steady financial markets. The good times certainly returned to Bali with tourist arrivals hitting new highs so if you are in a business that benefits from tourism you will probably have had a very good year. But to make a more precise calculation of how the year went you need to put a value on your net worth today compared to the end of last year. This means totting up the value of all your assets as of today and as of a year ago. If you didn’t perform such an exercise last year it may be necessary to write down best estimates. Working out your current assets now will make the exercise more meaningful next year. HOW MUCH ARE YOU WORTH? Calculating your net worth is not too difficult. The easiest part is to tot up the value of your bank accounts and obtain a current valuation of your financial investments. Bear in mind that only today’s surrender values would be appropriate in the case of contractual savings plans. If you have a state or defined benefits pension it may have no value upon death so cannot strictly be counted as an asset, although clearly it will have a value when you reach retirement age. If you are a British expat and have a frozen company pension you may qualify for a pension transfer under QROPS in which case you can turn a fixed benefit pension that would die with you into a valuable asset that can be passed on to your estate. But exercise great caution; many schemes have been sold that fall foul of British government rules, resulting in a potential 70% tax deduction from the transferred pension! When estimating the value of a property or business you should arrive at a figure that realistically reflects what a willing and able buyer would pay if you had to sell the asset within a short time. Even the most desirable stately home is worth only its fire sale or auction value if there are few buyers around or money is tight. Finally, don’t forget to deduct any liabilities or loans such as mortgages. SO ARE YOU WORTH MORE THAN YOU WERE A YEAR AGO? This is the crux of the matter. If you are worth less it could mean you are on a slippery slope towards poverty in retirement if this is a pattern that is repeated annually. If the loss was due to a ‘one-off’ event that is not likely to be repeated then all is not lost. If the losses are regular it means you are spending more than you are earning. It’s the equivalent of calories in and calories out for someone

with a weight problem except that in financial planning you need to be gaining, not losing!



If you are worth more now than a year ago, by how much more? Will an annual gain of the same amount be sufficient to reach your goals for retirement or financial independence? AND NOW IT’S ACTION TIME! Having completed the exercise you should have a better idea of whether you are on the right path. To boost savings you may have to earn more (not always easy) or spend less (can be painful). But at least you can see the options. How to build up your wealth is always a challenge. Accumulating money in the bank is a poor solution at current rates of interest in USD, GBP or Euro. Rupiah rates are higher but so is inflation in Indonesia and although the current economic climate is stable and even more favorable than in many western countries keep in mind the devaluations of the past. When I first came to Indonesia in 1983 the rate of exchange was Rp600 to the US Dollar! Contractual savings plans offer a good opportunity to build up long term wealth for those who can commit to a long period. But such plans are notorious for being abandoned early. If contributions to a contractual plan cease after say just two years the plans have little value, no matter how much you have invested in them. There is now an alternative plan on the market that is more flexible, subject only to locking up a small amount of capital. There are many other investment opportunities but they should be contemplated only if adequate cash reserves are in place and you can commit to the longer term. DON’T FORGET TO PROTECT YOUR ASSETS You may have a great job and enjoy a high standard of living based on your regular income. But if that were to suddenly come to an end due to illness or accident your future plans could fall apart unless you have ample insurance protection. If you have dependents their future could also be in ruins if you have no life cover and your assets are insufficient to sustain them. The same applies to your physical assets such as property and your car. You can save money by not insuring but when something goes badly wrong you will not regret those expenditures.

What is earthquake proof housing all about?


A majority of Indonesia is prone to high levels of seismic activity, some of which, as we all know, can have ruinous effects. People live in constant risk and yet very little is done to educate and help them prepare. Since the terrible earthquake in West Sumatra, when over 1,000 people died and more that 200,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed, IDEP has been working with village leaders, provincial and national leadership, local art groups, musicians, engineers and reconstruction experts, as well as networks of journalists and NGOs to spread information about how communities can protect themselves by utilizing buildings that are more able to withstand an earthquake.

Handicrafts (decoration for your home/villa) in stock. Factory closing down.

Yosephine Avi Rembulan: Earthquake Proof Housing

They cost about 20% more, though how much more is up to the individual home owner. The materials needed to build standard housing and earthquake proof housing are the same, i.e. sand, cement, brick, wood, steel, etc., but the building techniques and amounts and quantities used are different.

What are your interests? I love outdoor activities, especially deep sea diving and mountain climbing. I can’t remember how many times I’ve climbed Gunung Gede/Pangrango. I’ve also climbed G. Papandayan in West Java; G. Argopuro, G. Ijen and G. Bromo in East Java; G. Rinjani in Lombok, G. Batur on Bali and G. Sinabung in North Sumatra. What person has had a big influence on you? I admire Michael Moore because he made such great movies like The Corporation and Capitalism: A Love Story that have inspired me to see the world differently and change my consumption habits. I now buy local goods as much as possible and try not to buy anything that will adversely affect the lives of people in other countries. What do you like best about living in Bali? Living in Ubud has brought significant changes to my life that I can’t imagine would have ever happened had I stayed in Jakarta. It’s more peaceful, less polluted and less congested - although that is changing fast! Why did you start working in community development? Studying politics and macro economics taught me how economic injustice and income inequality destroy peoples’ quality of life. I believe life can be better if everyone is given equal opportunity. What kind of projects have you been involved in? I’ve done disaster recovery work in flooded communities in Jakarta in 2001, tsunami stricken villages in Aceh for two years starting in 2007, capacity building for local partners doing recovery work from the devastating earthquake in West Sumatra in 2009, and recently with IDEP helping survivors of the recent Merapi eruption in Central Java. My current work at IDEP is now more in management, particularly fundraising and program development.

Do earthquake proof houses cost more to construct?

Yosephine Rembulan, who her friends call Av i , w a s b o r n i n Yogyakarta and spent her childhood in Surabaya. Her family moved to Jakarta in 1990 where she lived for 20 years. As a child she took dancing and swimming lessons, and enjoyed playing tennis with her little sister and father. Avi graduated from the University of Indonesia in 2000 with degrees in economics and political science. Since February 2009, she has been working for IDEP, an organization which brings people from all over Indonesia to work together to address issues related to disaster management and sustainable development. IDEP also makes available an extensive and valuable trove of free information on their website.

Is an earthquake prevention program taught in Bali? IDEP started a program in Padang after the 2009 earthquake struck. Plans are for the program to go nationwide in 2011. Communities in Bali can learn about the program by visiting Where do you find your teachers? Our trainers learn from the self-help materials we provide on our website. These free downloadable manuals and posters are available by just clicking www.rumahamangempa. net/isi/media-cetak. Also check out a simple self-help film at: Is there danger of a big earthquake in Bali? The fact is that Bali has been experiencing earthquakes frequently but just on a small scale. So yes there is a risk and it’s very important that people need to be prepared. The Bali government has done initial work with the DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction) and the Bali Disaster Management Board. But a lot of follow up work still needs to be done, especially in remote areas of the island and not only in the tourist areas. We have developed DRR media that can be downloaded free from Hardcopies can also be bought by emailing to info@idepfoundation. org.

C/Ho/G-17 Nov. 10

What other programs is IDEP involved in? We are very active in disaster preparedness training. IDEP has a long history of partnership with Nusa Ceningan, a community which is highly vulnerable to the potential threats of earthquakes and tsunami. One of the leaders of the Indonesian equivalent of FEMA (BNPB) commented after witnessing a community emergency response drill on the island that he felt that what he had seen was “perhaps the best current living model for community based disaster preparedness in Indonesia.” We are replicating our Ceningan project in Jembrana in West Bali and in Garut in West Java. Do you do also train farmers in environmental friendly agriculture? IDEP has a small program underway in the Bangli prison teaching permaculture to inmates. We also have a permaculture training center and demonstration site in Ubud. How may readers learn more about the important work that IDEP does? Check out or visit our head office in Ubud: Jl. Raya Pengosekan, Br. Pengosekan Kelod (Belakang SD 4 Mas), Mas 80571, tel./fax: 0361 981-504. Get directions from our website.

For Colored Girls American writer, producer and director Tyler Perry’s claim to fame has been based on a series of 1950s Hollywood type melodramas. Although dated in style, these movies proved to be immensely popular with Black Americans, as they featured ‘colored’ casts, and dealt with issues pertinent to America’s Black audience. Perhaps, because it is based on a successful play, Perry’s latest ‘soap opera’ has considerably more substance. Though still slightly theatrical in presentation, ‘For Colored Girls’ is a powerful movie. Eight interconnected stories, dealing with the lives of eight contemporary Black American women, slowly resolve themselves into an inspiring conclusion. The ‘Colored Girls’ are Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, and Kerry Washington. All of them give gripping ‘Oscar Worthy’ performances. Devil M. Night Shyamalan doesn’t direct this movie. He leaves that task to John Erick Dowdle. But, Shyamalan produces from an original story of his own devising. Five total strangers enter an elevator in a tall office building. Half way up the building the elevator comes to a shuddering stop, leaving the passengers stranded. There is the occasional light blackout, and when the lights come back on, every time someone is found dead! The movie is a thrilling murder mystery, as you try to figure out the villain. There have been a couple of movies recently which feature characters confined to a restricted space. Dowdle and Shyamalan make an excellent example of this new genre. Buried Talking about characters confined to restricted spaces, you cannot get more constricted then the situation in this new movie by Rodrigo Cortes. Ryan Reynolds plays a truck driver, working somewhere in the middle east, and when he is kidnapped by Arabs he wakes up in a coffin, buried six feet under the ground. All he has is a cigarette lighter and a cell phone, with rapidly diminishing batteries, with which he can try to communicate with the outside world, and raise his ransom. Director Rodrigo Cortes comes up with some amazing solutions to maintain visual interest and suspense. Don’t even think about watching the movie if you are in the least bit claustrophobic! Fruit Fly This is a very bizarre, but, entertaining ‘gay’ musical comedy, from director H.P. Mendoza, who also scripts and provides much of the music. A young girl comes to San Francisco, with hopes of becoming a Performance Artist. She takes a room in a boarding house, which seems to be occupied mostly by ‘gays’ and lesbians. Soon, she is whizzed off to the local ‘gay’ nightclub, where she is to learn all about the joys of becoming a ‘Fag Hag’. The movie seems to be all about the huge egos of San Francisco’s many artists, and the appropriate etiquette to be employed in ‘gay’ nightclubs. Songs about ‘gay’ sex might not be suitable for the little ones, but, do try to remember that the movie is made very much ‘tongue in cheek’, and not to be taken seriously. Cyrus John C. Reilly plays an awkward divorced man, who reluctantly attends a party, but, to his surprise, there he meets a vivacious and charming woman, played by Marisa Tomei. However, John and Marisa’s budding romance is to be seriously hampered by Marisa’s weird and possessive son. Written and directed by Jay Duplass, the movie takes an engaging and insightful look into contemporary Los Angeles lifestyles. Both John and Marisa are terrific.

musical career as a Hip Hop singer. This documentary, bravely directed by Casey Affleck, follows Phoenix’s adventures as he tries to establish himself in the music industry. For most of the movie Phoenix appears to be ‘phased out’ on various illicit drugs, and his appearance on a major American Television Talk Show, to promote the release of his supposed last movie, is awful to watch. Also, his performances as a ‘rapper’ are pathetic, to say the least. Through out the movie Phoenix comes across as an egotistical clown. Whether or not this documentary will restore his credibility remains to be seen, however, you have to admit that it takes guts to offer up this revealing fiasco for general public consumption.

An interesting and action packed few weeks ahead. When Mercury goes direct on the 30th, it will mark the beginning of a rare phase, where we have all Planets in forward motion until the 26th January. New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on the 4th, with Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces the same day. Venus finally departs Scorpio on the 7th and moves into Sagittarius. The Sun in Capricorn has just teamed up with the North Node and Pluto, starting the next phase of karmic transformation. The Solar Eclipse highlights this Capricorn portal and intensifies the more serious side of life and where we are required to mature and take responsibility. Jupiter (the largest Planet in our Solar System) conjunct Uranus (the most erratic) right on the New Moon portends a month of radical change, growth and transformation. The Solar Eclipse at 14° Capricorn and Uranus/Jupiter at 27°Pisces. The nature of this growth will be along the lines of spiritually oriented awakening and an emphasis is placed on all things of a Capricorn nature. (government, military, time, business, finance and security) Of course the polarity is always called into play and with Cancer as the opposite theme, there will be issues pertaining to home and family highlighted as well. Basically, expect the unexpected and be ready to respond in a spontaneous way. We are preparing the way for Jupiter’s return to Aries on the 23rd and Uranus in March. Be ready to respond spontaneously and adapt easily. Changes will come thick and fast. NEW MOON 13°39” Capricorn 17:04 p.m. January 4, 2011 (partial Solar Eclipse)

ARIES: Mars remains in Capricorn this fortnight and teams up harmoniously with the Uranus/ Jupiter conjunct. For you this brings the possibility of a new work direction along with the solidifying of current ideas and possible projects. You are being called to take more responsibility and yet this brings blessings in the form of a deeper understanding of yourself, life and others. This promotes a sense of well-being and security, although the final outcomes are far from obvious. It’s possible that even those things which challenge you, bring you a greater sense of awareness and acceptance. Allow any internal tension to dissolve.

LIBRA: Many of you are being stretched by this Capricorn energy which currently abounds in the heavens. How to balance all of your needs, the current conundrum, when work seems to be taking on a larger part of your agenda and schedule. Schedule could be your key word here. The more you can release yourself from the need to memorize and distract yourself through excess communication the easier things will be for you. Put your plans in order and you will have more time to simply relax. The less stress you have in your life and body the easier things will flow. Here’s the thing, you know all of this. It’s just about the implementation.

TAURUS: Venus moving into that adventure loving sign of Sagittarius adds a whole new dimension to your relationships this fortnight and throughout January. You have been through 3 months of personal relationship training and now you get to play. Responsibility bodes well with you, as does time schedules, goals and plans. Current transits suit you well. The only glitch is for those born with late Taurus degrees, as you are in a potent healing phase of restoration. If this is you, allow the old to leave your life with grace, and know the wounds reopened now, will heal permanently. Feel your deep pain and sadness and release the guilt, shame and resentment.

SCORPIO: The Sun has just highlighted Pluto your ruler and emphasized your next phase of transformation. The heaven’s support your current evolutionary phase and as such bring much needed assistance in the form of healing old wounds and relationship resentment. This will enable you to move forward in the direction you now wish to go. Any holdups in your romantic partnering will finally be overcome and there is a surge forward in this area of your life. About time, you may be thinking to yourself, but by now you are starting to understand the consequences of previous actions and owning your part to play in the affair.

GEMINI: As Mercury forges ahead once more in Sagittarius this fortnight, your sense of enthusiasm is restored. A great time to plan for your next adventure, holiday, overseas journey and spiritual sojourn. Some unexpected twists and turns as you find yourself in perpetual change. You though, more than most, are very comfortable with this idea of change and spontaneous decisions. You could say, that you even invented them. At least in your own life, which has kept most people guessing as to your next move. Although the general trend is towards sobriety, there will be enough momentum created to keep you more than stimulated.

SAGITTARIUS: The good news is that Venus enters your sign this fortnight. How awesome is that. You get to play and adorn the feminine Goddess in an extroverted and fun way. Jupiter your ruler, joins Uranus to bring some exciting twists and turns to the program and all in all you are set for a fun time. Any stress you felt around the last Full Moon, has now subsided and you are free to move forward in any direction you can bring to your imagination. Remember this is your life and within that you have choices and can manifest and co-create your life in a playful and joyous way. Let your imagination run wild now and create an amazing adventure for yourself.

CANCER: This Eclipse time of year has you positioned to make enormous life changes. You may be thinking along the lines of career or vocation. A possible relocation, even to a foreign country is possible for many. Although it is easy for you to settle and become comfortable, the benefits that you can receive by boldly stepping out now, are well worth the effort. It is better to move and grow consciously, then be forced to do so by apparent external circumstances. Allow your self to hear the inner promptings and guidance and embrace the changes with grace and anticipation of the good things to come.

CAPRICORN: This is great time for you, even amidst the hurdles and plain hard work. By now, you are used to the concept of the need for transformation and are willingly applying your life to your soul’s highest potential and growth. We are all influenced by the New Moon Eclipse, and no one more strenuously than you. These coming months will be highlighted as you continue to grow beyond your own imagination. What were seeming obstacles before, appear like stepping stones on your journey of unfoldment. Continue to allow the change to become exponential and you will sit in a space of total wonder, before too long.

LEO: As the hidden forces begin to redirect your life, you finally get to see what the last months have really been about. It is in hindsight that you get to see that all is and always has been, in Divine Order. Allow then the current changes, to welcome in the next round of growth and spiritual evolution. Although you may be called upon, to make some tough decisions, trust that your intuition is your best guidance here and when unsure, allow some time to restore yourself to clarity before making further choices. So even though the atmosphere is a little tense and serious, you are in the right place.

AQUARIUS: The ongoing theme continues for a moment longer, as Chiron and Neptune spend their last weeks conjoined in your sign. Uranus also as it spends it’s last weeks in Pisces and joining Jupiter this fortnight, brings those winds of change once more sweeping though your life. There is no point resisting and in fact, you would hardly want to as these past months have borne testimony to the amazing potential of your life. When Uranus finally settles in Aries in March, the acceleration process really begins in earnest. Spend these next weeks then harnessing your inner strength and consulting your inner guidance. You will value it in the years to come.

VIRGO: As we seem to be in this perpetual healing cycle, the suggestion is for continued vigilance with regard to your health and exercise regime. It is easy to become distracted by other commitments, but it is your body that will suffer if you do. Remember also that the mind is very much a reflection of your physical health. Take the time to communicate your thoughts and feelings to others in a safe and sacred space and you will get to see how your thoughts are actually creating your outer reality. Beliefs are just thoughts that you think. So changing the way and what you think will change your beliefs, your behavior and your life.

PISCES: Jupiter conjunct Uranus in your sign on the New Moon Eclipse is like rocket fuel added to the events of your life. Be prepared for changes as they flow rapidly into your awareness now. This heightened sense of perception and intuition will guide you in the most appropriate direction. The Capricorn energy is acting as an anchor for you. If life offers unusual situations, all the better. Use your discernment and keep your wits about you. Remember too, that you remain in the midst of a major healing journey. The only way for old wounds to heal, is to allow them to rise to the surface. Healing however, will be swift and filled with Grace and ease.

“And Now The Super ‘Erb” We seem to live in a world where everything has always got to get bigger and better. I don’t understand why, perhaps it goes back to our economic wizz kids who say we must always have bigger and better profits so our wealthcare experts can enjoy ever larger cars and houses and lifestyles and bonuses. Of course prices also get higher. Inflation is not only affecting our pockets it also appears to be affecting many august fellow members of our population particularly those people who have a penchant for fast food (I wonder what the scientific name is for a creature that has evolved to eat fast food? A carnivore - well not really, certainly not a herbivore. A polystyrenivore? Perhaps a plasticarian). Corpulence is becoming a world wide problem. Some people really are getting fat aren’t they? They look like blow up plastic love dolls that have been blown up just a bit too hard. You can tell when someone’s getting fat - they bend an arm and their navel pops out. Closer to home bigger and better (depending on who you are) is also affecting the price of Indonesia’s rare and endangered species - the electron. As everyone knows electrons are made in Surabaya by rubbing dead cats on pieces of amber (see Fixed Abode”Rubbing The Amber” August 2009). Those wonderful people at PLN (Peddlers Listrik Nasional) have been working hard to produce bigger and better electrons. They have had a dream of creating an electron that has more spirit, one that will set off from Surabaya to Bali and not give up halfway. “Are we there yet?” “No we’re only half way and we haven’t got to the water crossing yet.” ”God I’m knackered, lets pee off home.” Even the hardier ones that manage to reach our lightbulbs always seem to be pretty halfhearted about it don’t they? To address this problem the Power Peddlers have set about genetic modification of the mild mannered indigenous electron Electronus Indonesiae by cross breeding it with the far more bellicose Electronus Texacalli, a genus which was propagated for use in electric chairs. Change is coming and we now have a new genus of electron known as the “Surabaya Super ‘Erb” this super electron has far more wumpih than its feeble predecessor.

work out how many hours it would take to use it at the maximum rate of power use, so a household on 7,700 watts who has used 800 kilowatt hours of power in the month is calculated at a jam nyala of 103.9 hours (of power used at the maximum rate). Yes I know this is as strange as a warthog wearing earrings but it is, in fact, diabolically clever. By comparing power used with the power allocated they have come up with a greed factor - an assessment of just how greedy (or non greedy) those ‘orrible little consumers are regardless of how many kilowatt hours they use. The power peddlers have also been able to work out the average greed factor across the country. It was found that on average households on R1 to R3 tariffs currently use 116 hours per month while businesses on B1 and B2 tariffs use 133 hours per month. The power peddlers have pontificated over these findings and have in their wisdom decreed that: 1. For tariffs more than 900 watts a minimum bill would be charged at 40 hours of maximum power. 2. For tariffs more than 900 watts up to and including 5,500 watts all power used will be subsidised. 3. For tariffs 6,600 watts and above only 50% of the average hours would be subsidised the rest will be charged at the full price.

These developments have cost rather a lot of money and so we are all being asked to dig deep and pay more. Our wonderful power peddlers have, quite understandably, said that those that are squandering the output of our poor hardworking cat rubbers will have to bear the lion’s share of the cost (so to speak). As a result there have been a series of changes to the way our bills are calculated. Mind you once the house of political enterprise found out what the power peddlers had been planning without asking them first there were some pretty heavy “negotiations” that at times produced more heat than a flatulent cow with a box of matches. With many arguments and lots of chopping and changing it has all been somewhat confused but finally the hot air is starting to clear. Let’s sit down and try and understand how it all works. This may get a little convoluted so perhaps you should get a nice cup of cocoa, a chocolate biscuit (the chocolate will help to ease the stress), throw out the dog, find a nice comfortable chair and we’ll begin.

Next the power peddlers then pustulated the prices we pay for each ‘erb. The full unsubsidised price of power is Rp1,380 per kilo‘erb. This remains the same. The subsidised prices have, however, been amendeded in an ascending direction (do I detect a firm grip on my short and curlies?).

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

The bill is calculated by adding the fixed charge (if there is one) the subsidised power cost and the non subsidised power cost. We then add a materai (stamp duty) of Rp. 6,000 and 5% PPJ (charge to pay for street lighting) and Bob’s yer uncle.

Above 7,700 watts the maximum amount of subsidised continues increasing and is worked out as Max Power P x 58 for R rates and x 66.5 for B rates. C/BM/G-3 Nov. 10


If this is all beyond you perhaps you may wish to go to the PLN bill calculator which you will find on the website at www.mrfixitbali. com/plnbillscalculator.html. This has now been updated with these recent changes. Something very important to note, up to 5,500 watts all power is subsidised while at 6,600 watts and all tariffs above only some of this power is subsidised. It may be that you use a lot of power over the month but you don’t tend to have a lot of heavy power items on at once. I suspect that there are many people who, if they carefully manage when equipment is switched on and off, could cope quite easily with only 5,500 watts of power. If this is the case you may be able to make significant savings by dropping to 5,500. If you do do this however don’t start blaming me if your power cuts out. Okay, okay you can now go to sleep, perhaps your dreams will be filled with images of thousands of cat rubbers busy rubbing their dead cats on huge pieces of Amber and ‘erberts shooting down the wires to Bali.

Sorry, you’re lost already. The Beban or abonemen is a fixed charge that used to apply to all electricity bills, this was a payment we made for the pleasure of being allowed to have one of those beautiful PLN electric meters hanging on our wall. From now on the beban only applies to people on tariffs R1 and B1 at 450 watts and 900 watts. The rest of us are allowed to have these wonderful wall decorations at absolutely no cost, wow! The fixed charge is calculated by multiplying the maximum power allocated with a price per kilowatt.

Let us go back to a basic concept that the power peddlers use. They bunch all the power you use together into one great lump and

C/BM/A-15 Dec 10

Right, brain now unscrambled, we’ll continue.

First, for most of us the Beban is no more.

For the majority of us with more than 900 watts the beban has been replaced by a minimum charge. How this is calculated has become one of the strangest mysteries of modern times but, having gained access to top secret CIA documents obtained from a puritanical church group known as WelshLeeks, the calculation has been finally revealed. It is all based on something called “Jam Nyala” (lit. flame hours - no don’t ask).


I am sure that your eyes glazed over and your mind drifted away long ago, you have eaten your biscuit, your cup of cocoa has gone cold and the dog has crept out for a sniff at several new interesting deposits of dog doo in the garden so, to relieve the stress on your over taxed brain you can retrieve the dog, make a fresh cup of cocoa and grab another biscuit.

We can summarise these arrangements as follows: The Indonesian Union of Cat Rubbers has also played its part winning a battle for better working conditions, a new breed of dead cat has been produced with thicker fur and, with the introduction of rest periods and a bonus scheme for the rubbers, the new electrons are being charged with far more vigor and zest. These changes have not been without difficulties though. It was found, for instance, that people just don’t like murdering a moggy or snuffing a puss so they have worked out a way of breeding cats already dead.

Orphanages in developing countries are often run as profit centres, and Bali is sadly no exception to this evil practice. These facilities can be a lucrative business for the people who run them. Many solicit donations in cash or kind from sympathetic tourists and expats which go directly into the pockets of the owners or to benefit their families. Some orphanages use the children as slave labour, forcing them to work on construction sites and beg in the street instead of sending them to school. Most of the orphanages here operate under religious banners; sadly, even a clerical collar is no guarantee that donations will not be misappropriated. How to tell the good ones from the bad?

that several organizations may have donated large amounts of money for a kitchen that might never eventuate, while the director drives a new car. “Westerners are especially taken in by the Christian orphanages, but many of them are also corrupt. We hear stories from many westerners who have been ripped off,” says Brent.

Over 4,000 children in Bali are housed in 71 orphanages, up from 38 in the early 1990s. Only about 10% of them are technically orphans. The balance are children whose parents are too poor to care for them, or whose mothers are unmarried or who have re-married and whose husbands don’t want the kids. Because the government provides one million rupiah a year for each child in full-time care, the facilities sometimes misrepresent the number of kids they house. These orphanages make most of their money from international NGOs and sympathetic visitors/tourists, who see the poor infrastructure and skinny, ragged children and want to do something to help. Often, these visitors make on-the-spot cash donations, bring clothing and books from their home countries or pledge money for repairs and school fees. Direct gifts of books, clothing or school supplies to the children are often taken away to be sold as soon as the donor leaves. In all but a few cases, the money goes directly into the director’s pocket; several boast of sending their own children to university.

I talked to Jan Harvey, a generous Australian woman who was deeply moved by the poor conditions of a Christian orphanage she visited on one of her frequent holidays here. “It was very run down. The common room was hung with wooden crosses and had a lectern with a Bible. The Director asked for sponsorship and uniforms, and the children asked for a computer. The Director emailed constantly with a long list of equipment including a laptop for the office, asking for payment via Western Union in his name. Costs were greatly inflated from the real costs. Once I sent the money, contact ceased despite my repeated requests for a receipt.” Several months later she asked a trusted friend to drop into the orphanage unannounced and ask to see the equipment she’d donated. The Director was caught out… most of the

The worst ’orphanages’ are appalling. The children live in squalor and filth, with rats everywhere. Malnutrition is common

Brent reports that some of these places have not improved in his 17 years of observation, but have actually become worse in spite of the fact that many foreigners are supporting them. Many owners want the orphanages to look run down and the kids needy so visitors will be moved to give money. “Don’t dismiss an orphanage because it looks good, is clean, painted, tidy and the kids look OK,” he points out. “If it’s well-run then at least some of the money is going to improvements and to help the kids. If you choose to help such an orphanage then you should become a regular visitor and monitor its improvements; if you don’t see improvement, then you have to ask where is the money going?” The worst ’orphanages’ are appalling. The children live in squalor and filth, with rats everywhere. Malnutrition is common. Sometimes the Bali Kids doctor has to really push to have sick children released to the clinic for treatment, because the owner wants the kids to work. In the worst case scenarios, when children are seriously ill and the owners won’t call a doctor, the kids themselves will find a way to contact the NGO and ask them to come. In this facility, the doctor can’t even leave medicine for sick kids or staff will sell it. Most are not that bad -- the kids at least go to school -- but the orphanages are still run as businesses. Owners spend as little as possible on school or education in order to pocket the profits. They frequently solicit tourists and overseas charities for large amounts of money. Well-meaning foreigners seeing these run-down orphanages don’t realize

Bali Kids became an official Yayasan in 2005 after a 12 year presence in Bali. It has its own doctors, three nurses and a nursing assistant as well as using volunteer foreign dentists. Its mobile clinic goes out on rotation to almost 60 facilities, and staff also treat kids in villages which have been pre-screened as genuinely poor by other charities. (Bali Kids does not visit eight Christian ‘orphanages’ which are partly operated as paid child care facilities for working, middle-class parents. When potential donors arrive at these facilities, the kids are told to hide their iPhones. ) Bali Kids also avoids overseas-operated projects where the key intention of the Director is to convert the child to Christianity. The children are treated on-site when possible or brought to the clinic. If they need blood tests, specialists or surgery Bali Kids organizes it and pays for it, seeking help from other organizations for the more expensive procedures. The orphanages can bring sick kids to the Bali Kids clinic at any time. “We don’t get as many sick kids as we used to because our constant medical vigilance is paying off,” Brent tells me. “We see a lot of malnutrition and related thyroid problems, flu, skin and respiratory problems, ear and eye infections, fractures, congenital defects, dental issues, cancer and, increasingly, HIV.” I corresponded with one girl who had been rescued from one of the worst ‘orphanages’. She told me, “I went to the orphanage when I was 13 years old and stayed there nearly for 3 years because I wanted to go to school. Every day we only ate rice and instant noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner; sometimes for lunch we’d have some vegetables with it. The owner slapped us often. It didn’t matter if we were boy or girl, he would hit our faces. I knew that kids my age should go to school and not be working on the building site, but I didn’t have a choice. It was like a bad dream. I didn’t have anyone to talk to. There was no staff there. I was afraid all the time. The orphanage didn’t send us to school. We stayed in the orphanage and the teacher came to us three times a week for an hour or two. The primary kids went to public school near the orphanage. We spent most our time working on the building site.”

The worst-case scenario is represented by two facilities in Bali run by the same owner. He sends scouts out to approach poor families on the island, offering to provide free food and education for their children which the parents can’t afford. Once the children enter the facility, they are not fed properly and the older ones are not allowed to go to school. They are forced to get up before dawn to operate mobile foods stalls or to work on a building site which has been under construction for over 10 years. One of the buildings is alleged to be a home for the ‘orphanage’ owner, built with unpaid child labour; one child fell to his death from the site this year. Other kids are sent out to beg at night in tourist areas. If the parents try to remove their children or the kids try to leave, they are threatened. If a visitor gives a present to child, it has to be handed over to the director. I talked to Brenton Whittaker, Founder of the NGO Bali Kids. Brent has worked here since 1993 and is intimately aware of the situation in all of Bali’s ‘orphanages’. “The only way to monitor them is to keep a close and continuing association,” he explains. “We do this with our mobile medical vehicle, which visits all the facilities in rotation and cares for approximately 5,000 children – about 600 kids a month. We’ve had to find ways around the corruption to deliver health education and medical care directly to the children. Our staff knows all the kids and all the facilities well; the kids know and trust our staff, talk to them and tell them what’s really going on. We learn a lot this way but we have to be careful, or the owners will deny our medical care to the kids.” It’s like something out of Dickens.

donor realizes she’s been scammed, the ‘minister’ has moved on. Bali Kids staff is constantly visiting orphanages, sometimes without warning. Besides providing medical care, they check whether donated equipment or materials have disappeared. They also learn from the children themselves whether equipment or even kids’ medicines have disappeared.

Brent has his to say about the following orphanages, “When their kids are sick they seek medical attention from Bali Kids or others straight away. They embrace health education and do care about the kids under their care. These orphanages are always in reasonable condition or always improving.” * Sidhi Astu (Franciscan) at Tuka * Maria Goretti at Palasari(Catholic) * Miftahul in Singaraja (Muslim), * Salam Orphanage in Tabanan * Jody O’Shea in Denpasar * Salvation Army Girls in Denpasar, * Elisma in Denpasar and Singaraja equipment on the list was not in the office and when pressed to explain where the laptop was, he finally confessed that his son was using it at university in Denpasar. The Director recently contacted Jan again requesting $5,000 towards a new office building for the orphanage, but the plans look very much like a family home. For whose family, one can but wonder? These stories are all too common. Jan has been coming to Bali four times a year since 2008, has visited many orphanages and sponsors several children to attend school through the John Fawcett Foundation. She has set up a Balinese Support Program in Queensland to raise money for Bali’s orphans, but she won’t be making any more direct

Scams are often discovered when visitors to Bali make a donation then return to the orphanage on their next trip to check on their contribution, of which there is usually no sign. Directors hope donors will never come back donations. “The money I raise will be going to Bali Kids from now on. Brent is doing wonderful work,” she said to me. Scams are often discovered when visitors to Bali make a donation then return to the orphanage on their next trip to check on their contribution, of which there is usually no sign. Directors hope donors will never come back. And directors often move around between orphanages so by the time the

The best way to help other orphanages is by donation in cash and kind to transparent and ethical organizations like Bali Kids, the John Fawcett Foundation www.balieye. org, Bumi Sehat and High 5 www. These organizations never give money to the facilities but provide services directly to the children. Bali Kids is in the process of building a new centre in Mengwi with two dental suites built to western standards, two medical examination rooms and accommodation for up to 30 kids with room for 30 more in full-time care in a separate infectious diseases facility. Over 60% of the project is funded but more support is needed. Funding is mostly from Holland, Canada, Australia, UK and the US. Bali Kids also produces and distributes booklets for the children on hygiene, girls’ health, HIV and recognizing and reporting sexual abuse. Visit for details.

What to Do in Bali with Children? Part 4: Restaurants By Ima Deville

“Desperately looking for restaurants with no screaming kids running around, please!” Too many entries on travel forums go along these lines. As parents, we know that it can be stressful to go to places with kids because there are still many guests who do not want to see or hear kids. Too bad really when Balinese people are all totally fond of children! Fortunately several restaurants cater for families and endeavor to give children a blast of a time. Below is a review of some old favorites and new venues that your children are bound to enjoy. Sushi Tei is part of a chain of Japanese restaurants located on Sunset Road. It is spacious and modern and all the waiters will welcome you with a loud “Irasshaimase!” before they give you a cold towel to cool down. Kids love sitting at the tables by the sushi conveyor belt and get to pick their favorite dishes such as makis and sushis. The young guests are given special chopsticks with a rubber band, easy to use. Many children also like noodle soups, prawn or vegetable tempura and chicken in various recipes. The presentation is fun too and there’s no better way to finish the meal than with a vanilla and red bean ice cream in the shape of a fish. Waiters are smiley and patient with kids and you will not feel claustrophobic in their large spacious room. It is also possible to hire their private room. Although they do not have special birthday packages at the moment, they are happy to prepare a little special desert and come as a team to sing “Happy Birthday”. Jl Sunset Road No. 99, Kuta.

the art of body The Harmful Effects of Eating Processed Foods Doughnuts aren’t the only problem! The list of terrible things we mindlessly ingest might be longer than you think. What are these dietary culprits comprised of? What makes them so toxic? And, most importantly, what are processed foods doing to us? Unfortunately, eradicating all processed foods from our diets is a difficult task nowadays but we can shed light on some of the dangerous ingredients we may be ingesting. Understanding the secret behind some of our favorite foods may change our mind and may even have us eating better.

C/He/I-15 Dec 10

What is processed food? The term ‘processed food’ can really be divided into these three categories: Processed food is made from real food that has been put through devitalizing chemical processes and is infused with chemicals and preservatives. Beef jerky, canned tea, jam, hot dogs, and low-fat yogurt with sugar or aspartame are a few examples of processed food. Preservatives are also used as a type of additive used to help stop food from spoiling. Junk foods contain very little real food. They’re made of devitalized processed food, hydrogenated fats, chemicals, and preservatives. Canned breakfast drinks, cold/sugary cereals, doughnuts, drive-through foods, and soda are examples of junk foods. Fake foods are made primarily of chemicals, and often contain gums and sugar fillers. Examples include bacon bits, bottled salad dressing, dehydrated soups, and instant coffee.

Energy Output > Exceeds Nutritional Input These non-foods have one thing in common; it costs your body a great deal more to digest, absorb, and eliminate them than they offer your body in nutritional value - an extremely poor return on your investment that leaves your body sluggish and depleted. Our ancestors preserved foods naturally, using salt, fermentation, and sun drying. Food processing has evolved away from these simple practices into more complicated and dubious methods. Today, nearly six thousand additives and chemicals are used by food companies to process our food. Many of them can have a devastating effect on our health. It is important to note the fact that additives and preservatives cannot always be painted with a negative brush. The addition of vitamins to bread and milk is actually a positive contribution. Unfortunately, the good intentions that characterized the processed food industry during the early days have now de-evolved to finding ways to cheaply process food and manipulate buyers, regardless of the detrimental affects on the health of people. Today, many additives and preservatives are harmful toxic chemicals as problematic as the decay they are used to prevent.

How many times have you spent looking for the ‘perfect’ apple or orange at the grocery store? Unfortunately, this perfection comes with a high price on our health. Though some artificial food dyes have been banned because they are believed to cause cancer, most dyes used today are of the artificial variety. They are also linked to allergies, asthmas, and hyperactivity. The long list of foods and beverages in which color is altered includes butter, margarine, the skins of oranges and potatoes, popcorn, maraschino cherries, hot dogs, jellies, jellybeans, carbonated beverages, and canned strawberries and peas. Even the chicken feed on large-scale egg farms is colored so that chickens will lay golden-yolked eggs similar to those laid by free-range chickens.

Personalized Hospitality Amenities a convenient solution for products & packaging

Sweeteners Most processed foods contain sweeteners, many of which are artificial sugar substitutes containing no natural sugars, such as saccharine and aspartame. Artificial sweeteners are linked to behavioral problems, hyperactivity, and allergies. Because saccharin was shown to increase the incidence of bladder cancer in animal testing, all foods containing this sugar substitute are required to carry a warning label.

Flavorings The most common food additive, flavorings - of which there are over 2000 in use - may be natural or artificial, and are usually comprised of a large number of chemicals. Peruse the ingredient list for the strawberry flavoring in one popular fast food outlet’s strawberry milk shake. Artificial flavors are linked to allergic and behavioral reactions, yet these ingredients are not required to be listed in detail as they’re generally recognized as safe. MSG (monosodium glutamate) is another popular flavor enhancer. Found to cause damage in laboratory mice, it has been banned from use in baby foods, but is still used in numerous others. It causes common allergic and behavioral reactions including headaches, dizziness, chest pains, depression and mood swings.

A Healthier Lifestyle Eradicating every guilty pleasure in life is not the end goal here, nor is it a particularly realistic approach to making changes... But if we understand the consequences of making what ought to be an occasional treat into the mainstay of our diet, we can begin to make wise choices about how many of these things we are willing to eat. When it comes to avoiding many of the questionable - and possibly deadly - additives contained in processed foods, we’re only human after all, so taking baby steps toward change is usually the best approach. If you can accomplish just one of these 10 steps, you’re moving in the right direction. 1. As a general rule, if you don’t recognize - or can’t pronounce - the words on a label, don’t buy it, or eat it. Opt instead for the real thing! 2. Avoid products containing MSG (monosodium glutamate) 3. Don’t eat partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated trans fats 4. Don’t eat products containing sugar substitutes such as saccharine and aspartame. 5. Avoid products with a long shelf life - the better they do on the shelf, the worse they are for your body. 6. Avoid products that have been enriched. They have been completely devitalized during processing. 7. Avoid food that has been genetically modified or engineered. Nearly all processed food contains GMOs. 8. Avoid products made with ingredients euphemistically described as “natural flavoring” or “natural coloring.” 9. Avoid products with added sugar - watch for words with “-ose” endings such as glucose. 10. Incorporate a multi-vitamin into your health regimen. If you’ve had a history of eating products high in sugar and are concerned about diabetes, incorporate disease-fighting products such as garlic, vitamin E, and aloe vera into your diet. Vitamin E supplements can also protect your body from the harmful effects of eating refined products that have been bleached with chloride oxide. As you begin to eliminate processed food from your diet, and start to enjoy eating real food that has not been processed to death, you will be on your way to optimizing your health, making an investment in your body’s future.

PROBLEM WITH YOUR TEETH Repair and rehabilitate your teeth in less than a week.

Helping Bali’s Children and Families By Michele Cempaka In 2002, Christine Grosso – a French native, came to Bali. She decided to take a short tour to the Karangasem region in the east of Bali and landed in the small seaside town of Amed. One day while she was walking through the town, she met a young Balinese child on the street. She asked him why he wasn’t in school, and he told her that his family was too poor to pay for him to go. Grosso was very moved by her encounter with the young boy, which was the catalyst for her decision to create a foundation to help disadvantaged children in Amed in collaboration with Indonesia/France and Europe/France. Thus, Yayasan Anak Bali was founded in 2003, consisting of four divisions: Anak Bali (headquarters), Anak France, Anak Spain and Anak Switzerland. The primary function of the European divisions is to fundraise and manage Godparents in Europe. They send all money raised to Bali, but decisions are made collectively. In the beginning, Anak Bali operated by finding donors who were then matched with a child who they supported through their primary school education. As the program evolved, donors continued their support through high school, providing funds that assist with children’s school fees, materials and uniforms. On Bali, there are many families that are struggling to feed their children and maintain daily life. Thus, healthcare is seldom made a priority due to the immediate need of survival. Anak Bali sees a strong link between education and healthcare; thus, they bring kids to local healthcare centers every six months for medical check ups in an effort to support the wellbeing of disadvantaged children who would otherwise not have access to healthcare services. In addition, Anak Bali is involved in ongoing school renovation & community center projects in East and North Bali. In 2006, Anak Bali built a community education center that is open to all children in the village of Bunutan. This center has four rooms that can accommodate overnight stays for volunteers or other people who work for Anak Bali. In 2009, they built another center in Pakisan that is equipped with a library, computers and classrooms, and in February 2010, a new library was inaugurated in a public primary school with the goal of encouraging children to develop a love of reading. Anak Bali has helped renovate more than 10 schools. Some of these schools were completely renovated and other schools had no libraries or were sorely in need of upgrading of their bathroom facilities. In certain instances, Anak Bali has given money for equipment such as new desks and chairs. Nyoman Sutapa, President of Anak Bali Indonesia shares the success of three children who participated in a TAKRAW competition: “We have 3 sponsored children who are doing well in their studies and who participated in Takraw competitions. Ni Kadek Juliantini participated in a TAKRAW competition in Denpasar. She managed to place third in the category of 15 - 18 year olds. Ni Ketut Rediantini came second in the 12 -15-year-old group. The third child, I Gede Suardana, was successful in his participation in the Jakarta Olympics, because he came in third in the 8 -12-year old group. He has great potential for the next

competition because he’s young. We hope that he’ll be first and that he’ll therefore be able continue to the Asia competition level. I appreciate them a great deal, because they are motivated and well supported. I hope that these results will provide encouragement and happiness to all the other children. Thanks for your cooperation.” Currently, approximately 250 children receive help from Anak Bali. One of their biggest goals is to help children continue their studies through university. Success of realizing this goal is evident, as there are presently seven students studying at university. One of these students is studying to become a dentist, and another student has recently graduated and is working as a primary school teacher. Additionally, Anak Bali is currently working on getting donations from big companies to assist with funding university students, as these costs are much greater. For example, to fund a university student to become a dentist, it costs approximately US$5,000 - $6,000 a year. The student must study for five years, so the total cost is about US$25,000 - $30,000. Anak Bali would be very happy if companies committed to giving support to their organization on a regular basis. Through continued support, many children will have the opportunity to obtain a quality education. All of Anak Bali’s programs are being funded by donations only. This makes it challenging for the organization to determine which programs will be able to be maintained in the future. At present, the younger children are matched with only one donor who pays for the child’s education expenses each month. In the future, Anak Bali would like donors who are not just looking to support one child, but who want to donate money to the foundation to assist a variety of projects as well as many children who are in need. Anak Bali determines the families that are in need by checking out the situation of the family before sponsoring the child. Anak Bali’s decision to fund a child isn’t based on a particular school. Often the head of the village or teachers will recommend children who really need assistance. If you’d like to help out, you can give as little as10, 20, or 30 € monthly. This money goes into a common fund earmarked for 75 scholarship students and 4 young people undertaking advanced studies. The scholarships are distributed to studious children. It is short-term aid (a minimum of 6 months) dependent upon school results. What does this mean? The teaching body picks out the top three students of the class; the scholarship is then attributed to the student from the poorest family. Anak Bali has set up this program for the last three years of primary school, middle school and high school with sums of 30,000, 150,000 and 180,000 rupiah/month (2, 11, 13 €) respectively.

Extreme weather driving Heavy rains and floods may have already claimed the life of one tourist this month, after being involved in a fatal motor bike accident; no one is exactly sure what happened but it seems he may have driven into a deep drain that was not marked and was not visible once the flood waters rose. Well everyone knows the drain is there don’t they? This is an ever present problem in Bali. When the rains come they really pour and flash floods, land-slides and just generally bad road conditions can be a real hazard to motor bikes and cars alike. Drivers here seem to be generally un-aware of the hazards that wet roads present. I know when my son’s had their mandatory driving lessons here in Bali no consideration was given to the finer points of driving at all, so I can only assume that the driving population at large is out there waiting to find out the hard way what wet weather driving can mean. We have already had some serious rain this wet season, and the monsoons have only just begun, so we can certainly expect some very wet and flooded roads over the next few months. Here are some tips on getting around safely during. First in heavy rains and wet roads SLOW DOWN. Even if you are driving a monster 4 wheel drive that can chew the wet roads up without a problem, give some consideration to the over vehicles that you drown with your wheel splash! Check your tires tread. I am constantly amazed at the amount of vehicles that I see on the roads here that have completely bald tires.

with the road and instead float on a thin layer of water. Hydroplaning can be avoided by slowing down. If you sense that your car is hydroplaning, ease your foot off the accelerator and avoid sudden steering or braking, after which traction should return. If there are large puddles on the road be aware that if only one half of your car goes through the puddle that it will create a drag on the puddle side of the car causing it to drift and turn. Especially in Bali be aware that there is no sure way of knowing how deep a puddle really is. A 6 inch deep puddle today can be an open ravine tomorrow as roads regularly collapsed leaving gaping holes down into drainage systems. Roadside drains or streams are not marked and can disappear during a flood. Never drive through flowing flood waters. Even all weather vehicles can be swept away easily

Driving in fog can be hazardous (and if you think we don’t have fog in Bali try driving through the mountains on a cloudy day!) and should be avoided whenever possible. Again, the first rule is to slow down. Drive with your headlights on or use fog lights if your car is so equipped. Do not use your high-beams – the fog will reflect them back to you, particularly at night. Do not overdrive the beams of your headlights; drive at a speed that keeps you within your field of vision. If you see headlights or taillights in front of you, slow down to increase the distance between you and that car. Use caution as the car could be stopped or barely moving. Finally, if the fog becomes too dense, get off the road and stop. Even creeping along the road at 10-20 kph can be unsafe. Here’s to Happy and Safe Holidays for All!

A light rain presents unique challenges. Rainwater mixes with residual oil, dust and even leaves on the roadway surface to make conditions slick. Increase the distance between your car and the one in front of you and take care turning and braking. Sudden steering changes and brake applications are a recipe for losing traction under these conditions. Headlights are always a good idea if visibility is poor.

Anti Aging & Natural Health


Stay Young and Healthy with The Latest Advances in Anti Aging Medicine

Do You Need More Energy? Dear Reader, Are you feeling exhausted every day– even after a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep? Or do you barely have enough energy to climb out of bed – and get through all the tasks you face each day? If so, you should read all of this article as it may well provide you with the solution for an instant energy boost. “Within minutes of having this Energy Boost, you feel more awake, more energized, and more alert - ready to face the challenges of your demanding day” It’s like the rush of endorphin-fueled energy you can get after a vigorous workout at the gym. Or the elevated alertness and energy levels produced by coffee or an energy drink – except without the edginess of caffeine. Low Cellular Energy = Low Energy & Fatigue It’s highly likely that your cells are depleted of energy. They’re struggling and failing to produce sufficient energy to power both your body and your brain to function at a high capacity every day. It’s probably why you’re often both physically and mentally fatigued more than you used to be. The reason for your fatigue could be a shortage of an essential co-factor your cells need to produce energy, a lack of a potent antioxidant that powers every cell in your body, or a deficiency of an essential vitamin that you need in large amounts every day. The energy co-factor I am referring to is vitamin B12. As we get older, our body becomes less efficient at absorbing this critical vitamin and so our B12 levels decline with age. Exactly how many people with vitamin B12 deficiency is not known, but it is estimated that at least 15% of people over 65 have some form of vitamin B12 deficiency. In fact, an article in the medical journal The Lancet reports that as many as 4 out of 10 older patients suffer from vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is one of the reasons why so many people I see complain of feeling tired and worn out. It’s also why your mind is unable to concentrate or perform demanding mental work at a high level. Are You at Risk for B12 deficiency? Low levels of vitamin B12 can deplete your cells of the fuel they need to make energy, causing you to be physically tired and mentally fatigued. As we’ve seen, vitamin B12 levels decrease with age, and part of the reason is a shortage of a protein known as “intrinsic factor” or “IF.” IF, (produced in the walls of your GI tract), allows your body to absorb vitamin B12 more efficiently through your gut. As we age, our IF levels decline – and along with them, our ability to absorb the vitamin B12 in our food and vitamin pills. Even with adequate IF levels, your body may not be getting the recommended daily requirement of vitamin B12 from the foods you eat. Also you’re probably eating less red meat today, and more fruits, grains, carbohydrates, and vegetables right? Unfortunately, red meat is one of the few dietary sources rich in vitamin B12 and most of us don’t eat enough to supply the B12 we need daily. The richest dietary source of B12 is in organ meats, however very few people these days still eat their liver and onions, brains and eggs, or steak and kidney pies. Vitamin B12 is also essential for making red blood cells in your body and low levels of this cofactor will lead to anemia or a low hemoglobin level. This can result if fatigue and poor health, and can also lead to more serious conditions like rapid aging and cancer. It is important you boost your B12 levels in order to have more energy and to improve your health. The best way to do this fast is to use an IV infusion of high doses of vitamin B12. Powerful Antioxidant Boosts Energy Glutathione is your body’s most potent antioxidant and it protects your cells every day from oxidative damage. It is a vital substance for your cells and body – without it you would die – it’s that powerful! But as we age, it is slowly depleted which results in rapid aging, a weak immune system, and an increased risk of cancer, dementia, Parkinson’s disease and more. Boosting your glutathione levels will increase your energy, detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system. Studies have shown that increased glutathione levels slow down the aging process, help to detoxify your cells and body (it’s one of the most potent detox substances known), increase energy, boost mental functioning, increase exercise performance and more. In fact glutathione therapy is now being used to successfully treat patients with Parkinson’s disease and dementia with excellent results. Since glutathione cannot

be absorbed orally, the best way to use it is intravenously or directly into your blood stream. Last But Not Least - Vitamin C Vitamin C is a crucial vitamin to your health and is vital for improving your cardiovascular system. A healthy heart and strong yet pliable blood vessels are vital for ensuring a constant flow of blood and energy giving oxygen reaches your cells on a regular basis. Hence vitamin C is vital for energy. Vitamin C deficiency plays a major role in heart attack and stroke and vitamin C therapy can reverse years of accumulated damage to help you: • Avoid heart disease • Break-open clogged arteries • Repair life-long damage to arteries and blood vessels • Drastically reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke

C/He/G-15 Dec. 10

So how does vitamin C protect you from heart disease and stroke? Vitamin C increases the production of collagen, elastin and other “reinforcement molecules” which support your blood vessels in the same way that iron rods support tall buildings. More collagen means more stability for your 60,000-mile-long system of arteries, veins and capillaries. When you lack vitamin C, cracks and lesions form in the walls of your blood vessels. When blood vessels break down, arterial plaques fortify the weakness and “repair” the damage. But when these arterial plaques become too thick, they block the flow of blood. A lack of blood to the heart triggers a heart attack – and a lack of blood to the brain causes a stroke. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant and a potent detoxifier of toxicity in your body. You can see how critical therefore vitamin C is to your health. Is This The Ultimate Energy Booster? The Neogen Energy Booster IV treatment could well be called the ultimate in energy boosting therapies. Why? Because it contains a super high dosage of all of the above 3 essential bioactive compounds your body needs to produce energy. This intravenous therapy is extremely safe yet very potent as an energy booster as it includes very large doses of Vitamin B12, Glutathione and Vitamin C to rapidly flood your blood and all your cells with these hugely important and energy boosting nutrients.

C/He/G-2 June 10

Just look at all the advantages the Neogen Energy Boosting IV gives you: • Instant Massive Energy Boost – you feel more awake and energetic within minutes of having huge doses of vitamin B12,Glutathione and Vitamin C directly infused into your blood • Eliminates “brain fog” – sharpens your mind for clearer thinking • Improves Mood – reduces stress and irritability. • Detoxify’s Your Cells and Body – cleaner cells are healthier cells, and healthier cells lead to a healthier you! • Boosts Your Red Blood Cell levels - more RBC mean more Oxygen to your cells and body for More Energy and Better Health! • Prevents and even Reverses Heart Disease– super high doses of Vitamin C IV will act to repair your damaged blood vessels and help you prevent more serious disease! Better Health! • Beautiful Skin - a water and fat soluble form of Vitamin C is used which is wonderful for your skin – soft, beautiful skin is the result. • Safe – all 3 of these substances are completely natural to your body and are NOT drugs! So side effects are very rare! If you would like more energy then the Neogen Energy Boosting IV may be for you. Contact Neogen Anti Aging, the leaders in Anti Aging & Rejuvenation on 0361 767613.

Preparing your brain for learningby

by Derek


Understanding Hormones of Mood Teenagers are always curious about their behaviour. They say and do things constantly that surprise them and they want to know why. Dramatic changes are taking place in nearly every part of your body. Hormones are chemical ‘messengers’ released by parts of the body to control other parts and teenagers particularly seem to be at their mercy. Many come from glands; you may have heard of some of them – the pituitary, the adrenal, the pineal gland. The hormones they release do everything from creating our sleep patterns, to stopping us urinating during the night (try going 9 or 10 hours during the day without a wee!). But there are four main hormones you should know about that put you into your moods. Two of which are nicer than the other two. The two you have to have but don’t really want too much of are adrenaline and cortisol.

Adrenaline Adrenaline gives you power. I was snorkeling with a friend once and a small sea snake swam towards us. Sea snakes are masters of their environment and have little to fear from us, therefore are usually very safe to be near. Robert didn’t think of that. The snake swam towards him, he kicked at it wildly, his flippers even came off. He panicked and the next thing he knew he was standing two meters out of the water on a barnacle covered rock. He had no memory of how he got there. Adrenaline had kicked his amygdala (the part of his brain that controls this, as well as emotions) into taking control of his body and up he went. Adrenaline gives us the “flight or fight” response. It’s survival at its most basic. I don’t know what happened to the snake. You may not be swimming with sea snakes, but it’s possible for people to build up high levels of adrenaline even without scary things. This gives you a mood you might not want. How can you tell if you have high adrenaline? Have a look at these questions. 1. Do you feel silly, or hyperactive? 2. Is it hard to fall asleep? 3. Do you have lots of energy? 4. Do you ‘spit the dummy’ and run off? 5. Do you argue a lot? 6. Can you concentrate? 7. Are you worried about trying new things? 8. Are you busy without achieving much? If you’ve answered yes too many times you may have high adrenaline levels. How do you get them down? Work with your family to help you calm down. Have quiet times. Do repetitious or ritual things that are easy. Talk with an adult you trust, perhaps a teacher or school counselor. Try to be where you feel safe as much as possible. These are things you can control, though maybe you’ll need some help.

Cortisol Cortisol is the other hormone I warned you about. Watch out for it because it’s released during stress, and often follows adrenaline in a double whammy. Cortisol blocks your ability to think clearly and speak your thoughts. How can you tell if you have too much? Again, answer these questions (adapted from Fuller 2007) 1. Do you find it hard to express your thoughts? 2. Are you worried or on edge? 3. Are you bullied regularly? 4. Are you upset easily? 5. Are you defensive and overreact to things? 6. Do you find it difficult to prioritize? 7. Do you smell more? Cortisol makes your sweat smell sour. If you have high cortisol for a long period it will become a problem. What are you going to do? You have to be somewhere you feel safe, away from violence or humiliation. If that’s not where you spend most of the day talk to someone – school counselor, parent etc about how you feel. Try not to eat too much sugar, but drink lots of water (cortisol is soluble). Go to bed early and get more sleep. Don’t acerbate the situation by playing violent video games or watching

violent movies. Listen to soothing music, put away your Megadeth albums for a while. These are things you can control. The two hormones you may want more of are dopamine and serotonin.


C/E/G-15 Dec. 10

Dopamine is cool. Fuller calls it “the party animal of the neurochemical world “(2007:89). You want dopamine because it makes you feel switched on and positive. Dopamine binds to the pleasure centers of the brain. Eight or nine year old kids have an adult dose. But teenagers sometimes get ripped off. Your dopamine levels may have dropped over the last few years. How can you tell if you’re low on dopamine? Answer these questions (based on Fuller 2007): 1. Do you have trouble focusing or concentrating? 2. Are you hard to motivate? 3. When you finish something do you lack pride in what you have done? 4. Are you lethargic and tired all the time? 5. Is everything boring? Too many yeses here and you may need more dopamine. Where do you get it? Your brain will make it for you if you exercise it in the right way. Try repetitive sports like swimming or ping pong or challenging games, and solve some problems. Spend more time with your friends and family and be more social. Try new things, seek success. Do things that make you laugh, especially with other people. You can eat better too – include omega 3 and 6 in your diet. These are things you can control.

Serotonin Serotonin is a beauty – it acts by calming you rather than revving you up like dopamine. Lack of it is linked to depression. Fuller calls it the ‘quiet achiever’ giving you a slow high that makes you feel good and calm, and in control. Here are the signs of low levels (also based on Fuller’s lists (2007)): 1. Are you sullen and uncommunicative? 2. Is it hard to get out of bed in the morning? 3. Are you hard to please, nothing ever good enough? 4. Is everything just too hard? 5. Are you sad or depressed? 6. Do you avoid looking others in the eye? (Your parents, teachers, friends?) 7. Do you try and avoid your family’s activities?

The good news is serotonin is easy to make. You get it from exercise – even just walking. You get it by spending time with friends or family who support you and make you feel like you belong. You get it by accepting responsibility and taking some control. Knowledge like this gives you power and you can learn ways you can change your moods. It is just shifting from the down hormones to the up hormones and this is the subject of the next article in this series on how the brain works.

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at This festive rice not only tastes like a celebration but looks like one with orange slices and toasted nuts. It adapts well to variations such as almonds instead of pistachios, dates instead of raisins, mangos instead of orange. Just keep the colors varied. You can buy the raspberry vinegar at Dijon.

Saffron Rice with Orange and Nuts Serves 4 Sauce Ingredients : - 2 Tbl. raspberry vinegar - 3 Tbl. canola oil or rice bran oil - ½ orange, juiced - salt to taste Ingredients: - 2 ¼ cups water - 3 pinches saffron, crushed - 1 cup white or brown rice - 1 orange - 2 Tbl. pistachio nuts, roasted and chopped - ¼ cup dried apricots, chopped - 2 Tbl. raisins - 3 Tbl. mint leaves, finely chopped - 2 Tbl. cashew nuts, roasted - salt to taste - a few whole mint leaves for garnish Directions: In a small bowl, beat all of the sauce ingredients together with a fork and set aside.

NC/G/G-29 Dec. 10

Put the saffron and rice into a pot. Add 2 ¼ cups water and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid and lower the heat. Simmer until the rice is done, which will take 20 to 40 minutes depending on the kind of rice used. When it is cooked add the sauce and mix well. While this is cooking, skin the orange and cut away the white pith. Thinly slice the orange into rounds and then cut the rounds in half. Finely grate the outer rind of the orange being careful to not get any of the bitter white part. Into a large bowl mix the cooked saffron rice. Now add the orange slices, grated orange peel, pistachio nuts, apricots, raisins, mint, cashews, and salt. Mix gently, not breaking up the orange slices. Put in a serving bowl and serve either hot or at room temperature. Garnish with the mint leaves. Afiyet olson! (That’s Turkish for Enjoy your meal)

by Dr. Rob Island of the Spirits Photographs by John Stanmeyer At Ganesha Gallery, Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran Bay Tel: 701010 For close to 5 years the acclaimed photojournalist, John Stanmeyer, wandered the remote corners of Bali to document esoteric rituals and dances. In order not to “produce yet another lovely color book on the island of the Gods”, Stanmeyer chose to use black and white film, and perhaps the world’s simplest camera, the Holga. Invented in China in 1981 for the mass-market, this $25 camera has become iconic amongst those who wish to return to a rhetoric of naturalness, spontaneity, and directness. A rebellion against technology and the digital revolution. The resulting photographs are reminiscent of early photographs before the invention of razor-sharp lenses, high-speed film and digital cameras. The mysteries and emotions of the subjects, such as ritual cleansing, cremations, and waving krisses, is even greater emphasized by atmosphere, Cleansing luminosity, and movement, which results from the low light conditions and slow shutter speeds. So, too, Stanmeyer, in spite of his homage to the ancient past, makes no attempt to cover up influences from the post-modern world. Thus, in ‘Cleansing’, the backs and legs of the young men bathing in a river are tattooed. Intriguingly, the soft focus evokes the feeling that the tattoos could be the silhouettes of leaves from the trees above. Most of the compositions of the photographs are asymmetrical. In ‘Melasti’ we see only the forearms and wavy blades of two brandished Melasti krisses against a moody sky. In ‘Ubud Cremation’ a lone hand points to the far away peak of a cremation tower, carried on the shoulders of a crowd of agitated men. Previously, John Stanmeyer has largely focused on conflicts, social injustices and disappearing cultures, but, while Bali’s traditional ways do not seem to be in any imminent danger, this series of photographs raises questions about the island’s heritage, and where it is headed at this critical juncture in history. The collection of Ubud Cremation photographs has also been made into a book of the same title, produced by Afterhours publishing of Jakarta. On Camera Photographs by MES 56 Collective At Biasa Art Gallery, Jl. Raya Seminyak 34, Seminyak Tel: 8475766 Photographers participating in the MES 56 Collective exhibition, ‘On Camera’, include Agung Nugroho Widhi, Akiqaw, Anang Saptoto, Daniel Satyagraha, Edwin Roseno Kurniawan, Eko Bhirowo, Jim Allen Abel, Wimo Ambala Bayang, and Wok the Rock. The exhibition is an important

phase in MES 56’s growth in the Indonesian contemporary arts scene. MES 56 was established in 2004 in Yogyakarta, during the time that Indonesian photography had a tendency to only explore ‘journalism’, Edwin Roseno, ‘Untitled 1’ wherein the function of the photograph is to inform or to represent, and the meaning is clear and distinct. The goal of MES 56 is to introduce new approaches in the field of photography, by positioning it in the realm of the arts, and, simultaneously, to question the role of photography in presenting reality. By presenting romantic or dramatic images of reality, the photographs from the Collective are fundamentally directed towards criticisms in the daily lives of ordinary people. Moreover, the Collective proposes that photography as a medium can be Eko Bhirowo, ‘Untitled 2’ further enhanced through the rapid development of technologies. The rapid change in technologies, the Collective feels, encourages photographers to adapt their perspectives and ideologies towards their roles in social lives. The Collective has observed how photography has become a democratic medium for the general public, particularly now when technology is less costly and more accessible. The ideas that are presented by the MES 56 Collective have become a unique genre in the visual arts in Indonesia. However, there are still discussions amongst curators and critics on how to ‘perceive’ this new trend, which is seen as a radical new perspective in photography. Questions about this new photographic trend results in photographs from the MES 56 Collective as being seen as subversive. The exhibition ‘On Camera’ explores ideas about the camera itself, which has always been defined only as an object or tool. The Collective focuses on ideas about how the camera itself perceives the world. Each photographer questions their own relationship with the camera, how Wimo Ambala Bayang, they define photography, and ’Unstable Horizon’ how they present concepts on introducing new ideologies into photography. All of the exhibited photographs deal with layers of reality. The relationship between aspects of reality with the lens of a camera is the main idea put forward. The Collective shows how easy it is to play with reality. They re-create, manipulate, control, and freeze moments. What is identified as ‘reality’ itself, has been transformed by MES 56 into something of a much wider scope. For example, Edwin Roseno creates images by placing manufactured objects into a landscape, which then juxtaposes both elements of the photograph into a unified frame. Eko Bhirowo features works which comment on the relationships between art photography and commercial photography. While, Wimo Ambala Bayang exhibits the results of the technological abilities of a camera to present reality from different perspectives. Wimo plays with perspectives and angles that questions the ‘logic’ of landscapes.

This exhibition showcases the similarities and differences of each member of the Collective, especially in the ways in which they respond to social themes and the cultural landscape of Indonesian society. All of the works on display, from the nine participating photographers, demonstrate that the MES 56 Collective is rapidly becoming an influential group in the Indonesian contemporary visual art scene.

Update Square, in recent years, has done for Lombok what Café Warisan did for Bali in the mid

90’s. Both were the 1st high quality restaurant to become established outside of the protection of a starred hotel, on their respective island. Square offered something better than the rest from the very beginning but that went to a still higher plane with the arrival almost 3 years ago of current Executive Chef, Wayan Budiana who had spent many years working alongside Bali’s Chris Salans at The Legian, Ary’s Warung and Mozaic. Latest offerings at Square include Citrus Smoked Salmon with confit orange and a rucola, oil and red apple salad. Grilled Barramundi is with coriander, braised leek, asparagus and a vodka raisin and capers sauce [pictured] and Beef Tenderloin with a mustard cream sauce. Other popular dishes include Foie Gras, pan-seared and served with an apple chutney and a spicy sweet and sour tamarind sauce [@ Rp.100,000, compare that with Bali!] and the best of local produce [lobsters, fish and scallops] and imports from the USA [duck] and Australia [beef, lamb and barramundi from Australia’s northern coastal areas]. The Chef’s Special 5 Course Set Menus [@ Rp. 275,000++] are amongst the best value dining options available in Lombok.

NYE@ Warisan. What a contrast the newly opened Warisan is to the old Café Warisan.

As special as the original was it was still relatively primitive in its garden setting of the 90’s, your chair on bare earth. It was the food that made the experience, and the scarcity of such quality elsewhere in Bali. The new Warisan is amazing! Whilst seating around 200, it still retains a unique charm about it, stylish and classy! Tables are spread out for total privacy and the landscaped garden with rice paddi views beyond offer a quiet elegance, different to all else. It will be a very special place to celebrate the birth of 2011 with their NewYear’s Eve Party. The Amuse Bouche is in fact three small salmon variations; smoked mousse on toast, gravdlax on blinis and roe with avocado guacamole. Three Oysters follow; gratinated with champagne, with tomato granite and black caviar and finally a leek and sea ecume. A Green Apple and Vodka Sorbet is served between the Pan Fried Foie Gras and Roast Lobster Medallion and the Steamed Coral Trout [OR a Bacon Lamb Saddle Roll stuffed with black olives, rosemary jus and porcini mousse, if you prefer]. Finish with a Chocolate Craquant, Strawberry & Ginger. Entertainment is by Lisa Soul and her band with a contemporary dance exhibition by Mireki Jasmine Okubo, guest DJ’s in between. A night to remember and all for Rp.999,000 Net, and that even includes a welcoming glass of Champagne.

The Corner @ Dijon is temporarily no more! That was to be my item when I saw the total demolition of the old building. However the owners do not believe they are in Bali, they think they are still elsewhere, as the complete rebuilding process has taken less than ONE week and the New Corner has already re-opened, larger, and with a few more tables to cater for all those regular lunchtime customers. Opened without fuss years ago, and busy since day one, it just goes to show you what product/business knowledge can achieve.

Warung Blanjong is a better than average local warung in a pleasant tree-lined setting in Jln. Danau Poso, Blanjong, Sanur. Design, wooden tables and chairs are very typical for a local warung except that this place is scrupulously clean. Inside the overhead fans whirl away, the window openings are fully exposed and it is invariably cool enough to enjoy hot food. Off the side street is a covered terrace also open to whatever passing breeze there may be. Whilst the menu includes the normal tourist options of the area [Goulash, Schnitzel, Burgers, etc] it is the Balinese and Indonesian dishes that offer most appeal. Amongst the Balinese options standouts are the Tum Siap, spiced chicken wrapped in banana leaf, the classic Siap Betutu, Ayam Pelalah [shredded chicken with lime and a little chilli] and Pepes be Pasih [pieces of spiced fish, wrapped in banana leaf then grilled]. Nasi Goreng and Nasi Campur are offered in both Balinese and Indonesian style, but ask for your egg on top to be pan fried ‘normal with soft yolk’ rather than the flat, dry and cold style of Indonesia. That old favourite Indonesian Chinese snack Fuyung Hai is a thin disk of omelette here, but still studded with diced vegetables, a cup of sweet and sour on the side, waiting to be poured all over. All in all Warung Blanjong is a friendly warung, always good value and a pleasure to visit. Saigon Saveurs will open soon above the Bintang Supermarket, in Campuhan, Ubud. It will be a Vietnamese restaurant, still a rarity in Bali. The management of Sayan’s The Mansion has virtually taken over this area with their Cherry Blossom Restaurant offering all day Dim Sum and Cantonese roasted meats and unique Noodle Bar in the other upstairs section of the building and on the ground floor beside the main entrance is their Vietnamese Café and Deli.

Celsius is the latest in number of well established restaurant chains from Jakarta and/or Surabaya ‘testing the water’ in Bali by opening a local branch or franchise. Over the past 10 years many such successful Javanese operations have tried to do this but most have failed and have since long departed. The recent arrivals appear to be more successful. Celsius Café & Grill is situated on Jln. The Bypass Ngurah Rai, not far from the statue roundabout at Kuta Graha, it adjoins a surf shop and appears to be connected. The menu is very user friendly for tourists [excellent pictures, English only text] unlike some of the other arrivals who make no such concessions even though setting up in tourist areas, and trying to snare tourists dollars. The menu is a mix of traditional Indonesian, a touch of Asian and quite a percentage of very International dishes. Fried Dumplings are Chinese style, stuffed with squid with a mayonnaise dip. Chicken in the Basket is slices of crumbed boneless meat. Interesting platters of Mixed Satay and Snacks are perfect for two persons. Thai Papaya Salad combines green papaya with long beans, red chillies, dried shrimps and lime juice. The Chicken Cordon Bleu is not only spelt correctly but is stuffed with layers of smoked beef and cheddar cheese not the local ‘processed’ variety. Grilled Duck, which includes a leg, is very good, covered with a sweet super spicy Rica-Rica sauce and jukut urap. Pad Thai, Thailand’s noodle dish, is surprisingly good and tasting very original. Instead of the normal dried shrimps this dish is studded with small juicy prawns. It is served ‘in a blanket’, a wrap of thin egg omelette. It was just a shame that the blanket was cold. Desserts include a steamed sweet cassava with honey, very popular. Massimo’s celebrates an old Italian custom, ‘Befana or Epifania’ next Thursday evening,

January 6 [the ‘other’ Christmas day]. Custom has it that a Very Old and Ugly Lady dressed in Black drops the final Christmas present into the children’s socks [your kids will love it]. Different Stations [hot, cold, grill and dessert] are set up all around the restaurant and grounds from where you can sample a vast array of that special Massimo cuisine. All for a cost of Rp. 295,000 p.p., [Rp. 130,000 for children]. Bookings are essential. [Tel: 288.942] Gerry Williams For more information see our website: NC/R/G-29 Dec. 10

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

A German Meat Feast! German food arrives in Ubud! As anyone who knows German cuisine will already understand that means a variety of meat dishes. A meat feast for carnivores! Wackel is on the site of old Indonesian restaurant Warung Tegal. Needless to say it has been completely renovated and modernised but it still keeps a local charm, particularly as it now overlooks a nicely landscaped water garden. In fact it has now become a very pleasant place to enjoy a quiet meal, anytime. Think German and you think Sausages. Wackel does not disappoint. There is a choice as comprehensive as Bali allows. There are boiled Weisswurst, Swiss Cervelat, Wiener Wuerstchen and Beef Frankfurters, whilst from the grill you can have Natural Nuernberger and Nuernberger, Grobe Bratwurst, German Bratwurst and Buttifarras. Feel like a Sausage Feast? Then order their Sausage Festival, a selection of sausages that are enough for 4 people, all cooked on the BBQ at the entrance, the aromas teasing your senses when passing. The first thing I noted on the menu at Wackel was that there were a number of my all-time favourite dishes, and a few that were totally new to me. Leberkaese is meat loaf from pork, topped with a fried egg, at Wackel served with a potato salad, for me a perfect small simple lunch, and one that I have enjoyed all around the world. Another snack sized dish [meant for the kids but I like it a lot] is Reibekuchen, two round crunchy patties of crisp Swiss Potato Roesti, each topped with a chunky apple sauce! Semmelknoedel are Bavarian bread dumplings. I love them! No idea why but I always have, Here one sits on a plate of mushrooms in a cream sauce. Simple but wonderful! The same dumplings are also served with the Schweinebraten, thick slices of roast pork served with red cabbage as well as the dumplings. Schnitzels are supposedly Austrian and young veal is the normal meat, a financial impossibility in Bali. Whilst their original Wiener Schnitzel uses local beef the Chicken Schnitzel is also very popular, crunchily crumbed and pan fried, A most important part of enjoying a true schnitzel is not to forget to squeeze the provided lemon all over the schnitzel, it makes all the difference! I have never been a great fan of spaetzle [an egg noodle from Swabia in Germany, and a common meat accompaniment in southern Germany and Austria]. Previously it has always been served to me on the side of the plate, often tending to

be dry and rubbery. At Wackel they recognise the fact that it needs liquid to keep it moist, as with any fried pasta, and serve it as the base for their Goulasch. I cannot believe how different it tastes, this combination is perfect. Roulade is on many European menus, not only German, and is often a touch on the dry side. Here the twice cooked process does the trick! Don’t try to share this dish as everyone will want their own Roulade. It is so tender, yet with that strong beef taste. Served with red cabbage [a vegetable that I can never get enough of] and mashed potato, once again perfect combinations. Seasoned minced beef come in many forms. At Wackel you can have it as meatballs with a salad, hamburger-like patties with a potato salad or similarly done in their Frikadellen with thin wide soft pasta and the most amazing beans I have ever eaten. I discovered that they are a Bali normal but only if you personally select them in the market [out of my territory being a daily restaurant visitor]. Very long and thin they are almost a lime colour rather than the more normal dark green. Evidently they are the very young beans and oh so tender! The minced beef patties at first glance look dry without any accompanying sauce but in fact are so moist that they become another dish that is fought over!

Other classics include a Pork Schnitzel as well as the Jaeger, two small pork schnitzels in a mushroom sauce with noodles. Zwiebelrostbraten is beef steak topped with onions, served with sauerkraut and a potato mash. Pikante Hackphanne is a pan-fried dish, served in the pan, of minced beef, red beans and paprika. The famous Pork Knuckle, Schweinshaxe, is available at Wackel but due to the long slow cooking process it must be ordered the previous day. The old Café Tegal stood on this spot for many years and although in decline during recent times Wackel has retained most of their Indonesian and Indonesian Chinese menu items. Cantonese soups [sweet corn, asparagus and crab] vegetable dishes in garlic sauce and mains [sweet and sour chicken or prawns, chilli and butter sauces as well] and the all important special fried rice combinations. Wackel provides another cuisine choice in Ubud dining, along this stretch of road south of Ubud and the Monkey Forest that links Padang Tegal and Pengosekan. More importantly it adds yet another great value option. One I will be returning to very often.

Ubud Area &


Politics and Literature at Bar Luna Cafe Max Lane’s Unfinished Nation: Indonesia Before and After Suharto By Uma Anyar

Bar Luna, a cosy bohemian-style café on Jalan Gootama, is well into its first season as the local hot spot for literary events, author interviews, readings and tasty tapas. Once a week an international or local writer is interviewed by Geoffrey Williams, ex-Sydney Writer’s Festival, who throws the floor open to questions and lively discussion with authors and audience. Janet De Neefe, founder of the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival and owner of Bar Luna, is the creator of this on -going literary happening that nourishes the minds, hearts and bellies of readers, writers, thinkers, hipsters and munchers who live in or visit Bali. It is becoming Ubud’s version of Paris’ legendary Deux Magots Ubud has long been known as the artistic soul of Bali, renowned for its visual and performing arts. The Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, now in its seventh successful year, has broadened Bali’s creative offerings to include the written, spoken and performed word. Bar Luna is a great place to spend Thursday evenings, with the action beginning at 8pm and lasting until about 9:30pm. Max Lane, Indonesian scholar, lecturer and author of Unfinished Nation: Indonesia Before and After Suharto was a recent speaker. Lane is a long time political activist with a strong commitment to informing the West about Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia. Lane told the gathering that he was on a speaking tour to out- reach campuses and had talked to students in Negara, Singaraja, and Klungkung. He said that there is a lot of unfinished business left over from the 1965 communist coup. Lane believes a crisis will erupt in Indonesia’s political system due to the grave imbalance in wages, which is exacerbated by government corruption. “The political elite have kept the

country from developing the economy. This crisis could manifest in five to ten years.” He stated that Indonesia is in the G20 because the Indonesian economy is equal to Australia, however with a population ten times greater, the economic discrepancy is experienced on a much deeper and more individual level here. The average Australian makes 45,000 dollars a year compared to 2,300 dollars on average in Indonesia. Lane thinks there is increasing alienation of the people. “They don’t see anyone they really want to vote for, so many just don’t vote. There is a lot of anger and contempt for the government, “he said. When asked about his friendship with celebrated Indonesian author, Pramoedya Ananta Toer (6 February 1925 – 30 April 2006); his novels and how he survived political imprisonment and isolation, Lane commented that while all of Pramoedya’s books are now easily available, many university students have not read them. He attributes this to a conservative university faculty, but also to the problem of the book distribution system in Indonesia that has only one distributor. “Pramoedya was extremely stubborn. He had a passionate love for Indonesia; he loved it as it was. He loved its reality.” Pramoedya wrote seven novels, short stories and plays before and during imprisonment for his political views. “After his release, he didn’t write anything. He just couldn’t write about or really understand the changes which had taken place in contemporary Indonesia. Previously he had written about the details of ordinary people’s lives and struggles. Pramoedya believed in fighting back in every way. He refused to speak Javanese and considered it a feudal language. It was too much about high and low status. He considered all of Indonesia’s local languages backward. He advocated one democratic national language and chose only to speak Indonesian.” Lane is Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s foremost translator whose acclaimed version of the Buru quartet is the most successful translation of Indonesian literature to date.

When asked if there is any hope within this bleak outlook, Lane replied, “There are grass roots groups, trade unions, farmer’s organizations, and women’s groups that are active. There is regeneration in the universities and despite the distribution problem, more books are being published then ever before. Interesting ideas are coming out of the generation of 30-40 year-olds. The arts are growing and the theaters are packed. These seedlings of hope and ferment are active and should be promoted.” Lane thinks that Indonesians have a greater sense of who has the wealth in the country, more so than in, for example, Australia. They know who the heads of corporations and the major government officials are. He believes the corrupt government elite should be removed and the gap between the rich and poor has to be met with productive economic development.

Lane responded to the question regarding Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers by stating it is unfair and needs to be rethought. “If you arrive by boat you are detained and held behind bars, if you come by airplane and buy a visa it is a different story.” No one rushed to leave, people wanted to talk, discuss, chew on the strong ideas and no nonsense attitude that Max Lane left in the room. Every table was hot on discussing the monetary crisis and globalism. I decided to buy every Pramoedya book available and read my way into this beautiful, mysterious and proud country which I now call home. C/U/G 15 Dec. 10

Ubud CUSTOMERS COME FIRST! Four of Ubud’s excellent eateries took the opportunity this month to help their great wait staff learn more about being part of a Customer First organization. Twenty staff from Three Monkeys, KAFE, Kue and Taksu discovered their own Personality Type – learning more about how to relate well to their customers –looked at their workplace’s cycle of service, and with the help of local professional actors practiced handling conflicts with “customers”. All in the pursuit of a better experience for visitors to some of our top cafes. For info about in-house and public training programs in customer service, personality type and conflict resolution: email: jrprconsult@ GETTING TAO’WN IN CHINA A group of local Qi Gong enthusiasts returned recently from an extraordinary two-week intensive retreat in the mountainous province of Fujian, China. The retreat, organized by Bali’s own Wandering Dao School, introduced participants to life at a 1,500 year old Taoist temple, tucked deep inside an international nature preserve. While conditions were sometimes wet and chilly, Ubudian writer Shervin Boloorian says this didn’t stop the five Bali expats and their colleagues from experiencing the full splendor of their surroundings or the peaceful monastery atmosphere. The retreat featured daily meditation and toning practices, Qi Gong and Dao Yin stretching exercises, specialized abdominal massage training from Ubud’s Qi Gong Master Daniel Li Ox, Chinese calligraphy lessons, authentic vegetarian Chinese food, and lectures on Taoist fundamentals and the fabled “I-Ching” by the temple’s spiritual leader, Master Wang. Li Ox plans to arrange another retreat to the temple in Summer 2011 and b e y o n d . F o r i n f o r m a t i o n h t t p : / / w w w. FAB MUSIC – SMILEY PEOPLE At various places round Ubud, we’ve been treated to the sounds of Kacir, an astonishingly powerful Jazz singer and musician from Alor. Kacir and his band – joined by dynamic young Jakarta singer Eka – now play every Wednesday night from 8-10.30pm at Anhera Restaurant, Jl Raya Sanggingan, next to Indus. Clever Jakarta-based owner, Ibu Hera, has snapped them up for a three-month contract; very sensible, with so many places trying to get good live musicians but refusing to give the musicians a serious commitment! Yummy food too. Jl. Raya Sanggingan, Bookings, 0361 977 845. TOTALLY KREN ‘JAKARTA’! Did you know Indonesia has an e c o n o m i c cooperation agreement with Burkina Faso in We s t A f r i c a ? I learnt this from v i s i t i n g percussionist Kalifa Hema, the soloist with Farafina who visited Bali last month. Kalifa says in Bobo, his home city, all the decent-sized motorbikes are called “Jakartas” – as in, “Will you take the car tonight; I’m going on my Jakarta?” It’s just a generic name for a good bike, but until he arrived in Indonesia he had no idea they were named after a city; neither, he says do any of the other thousands of Jakarta riders in West Africa. Unfortunately, the agreement doesn’t include those delightful little heritage scooters – but then, we wouldn’t want to lose anything as kren (cool) as the one in this photo! START AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON On New Year’s Day, plan the year, work off the “night before” hangover or just start 2011 the way you intend to live it, by chilling out with a few friends at Taksu Restaurant, with their extensive “Breakfast Just the Way you Like It” à la carte menu or a rejuvenating three course brunch menu, available unt il 4pm.

With a continuing emphasis on l i t e r a c y, sanitation and now basic hygiene as well, they are targeting five elementary schools in Kerta, Payangan. The club is working hand in hand with Kerta’s Kepala Desa, Made Gunawan, the principals and staff in the chosen schools, our bilingual teacher friends at Dyatmika and many volunteers. What’s the plan? For each school, ensure a consistent and reliable water supply, build functioning toilets and build hand-washing basins at toilet locations. With these facilities in place, the stage is set to teach children about basic hygiene... basic being the operative word! Research shows that 60% diarrheacaused illnesses can be eliminated with proper hand washing. Up to 600 children and almost a thousand adult community members will be involved…. And that’s a lot of healthy families.

Say What? Question: I have been scheduled during the lunch hour of an annual meeting with our company to speak about what I do. Lunch is typically when people eat and socialize with one another, and I wonder if this a “slight” by my coworkers. The self-respecting part of me wants to say, “No, I will not speak during lunch,” but the proud part of me wants to prepare a great presentation that will grab everyone’s attention. I can’t get over the feeling that I have been “dumped” in this timeslot because what I do is not perceived as being as important as what others do in our company. I view it as a sign of disrespect to me and my work. Am I overreacting? Dr. ZZ: In a word, yes. You are overreacting. I find it hard to imagine that your coworkers would invite you to hold such a focal position at this important meeting if they didn’t expect that you’d give a riveting and fascinating speech. This is an excellent opportunity to polish your public speaking skills, to take command of the environment, and to shine. Just do it! Question: I have been working with my friend for some time now, and people tend to pick on her. This is upsetting to me because she is so nice -- maybe too nice. She used to tell me that people picked on her at work, and I even avoided working with her because of it. Now that I am there, I see that one person in particular makes fun of my friend real bad. I know this woman bugs her, and I’ve seen and heard her first hand. When relating to others about the situation, this woman will say that she isn’t meaning any harm, that my friend is just too sensitive. But I and others know the truth. My friend asked me not to say anything to the woman who picks on her. She doesn’t want to involve management either. She says it will make her out to be a snitch. I don’t get it. My friend is pretty. So why do people pick on her? She is a sweet, real cool person and a good friend to have. There is one thing about her though: she is shy, and she walks with her head down, slouching because of shyness. Could that be why she is picked on? My mom says she gets picked on because the way she carries herself (shy and timid) makes her an easy target. Is that true? Dr. ZZ: Your mother is absolutely right. Bullies know how to choose their prey. The minute your friend pulls her shoulders back and stands up tall to this woman, the more likely the bully woman will be stunned and will back off. In that sense, life is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If it is war that you believe drives us, then war is what you will experience. If, on the other hand, you are convinced that peace drives

us, then the world for you will be a paradise. Although you may be able to mentor your friend in this situation, in the end you do not have the capacity to override all disagreeable people and make them output the world the way you prefer it. As painful as it may be for you to witness, the final outcome of this involvement between your friend and the nasty co-worker, is between your friend and the nasty co-worker. You can disagree with what the bully woman is doing, defend your friend in the midst of her assaults, and do your best to confront the bully on your own terms. In the long run, however, it is your friend who is responsible for developing her own sense of self-confidence. Away from work, you can practice with her by coaxing her to stand up straight and to look people straight in the eye, but you also have to find your own way of accepting diversity, separating yourself from your friend, and incorporating an appreciation of disagreements as a fact of life.

Question: I am not young. I am in my early 30s. I like men, but I do not really want a boyfriend because then I will have to have sex. I don’t want kids either, and I don’t want to go to a female doctor. This all comes from not wanting anyone to look at me “down there.” I think that female body parts are ugly, and I am embarrassed to show them to anyone. Actually, I have seen pictures of other women naked, and I know I look nicer than they do; so it’s not me thinking I am ugly, it’s just me not wanting to show my body to anyone else. It feels dirty to me. Is there something wrong with me? Dr. ZZ: Rarely does a woman feel so embarrassed about her own body that she doesn’t want to have sex. Sex is a natural part of life, and most men would probably not find your body odd or ugly. My hunch is that there’s a deeper, hidden reason to your being afraid to have other people look at you naked. If you want to get past your fear, you may want to consider counseling.

Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

Licence No.421/BPW/12/1999

The Wisdom of Bali by Anand Krishna The Wisdom of Bali explores the foundations of spiritualism in Bali, giving the outsider the underlying reasons why the Balinese live, think and pray the way they do. Into the bargain, the book also does a lot of explaining and demystifying of Bali Hindu religious beliefs, symbols and proverbs, and helps us understand and appreciate the indigenous ancestral wisdom of Bali. The book begins with an introduction to the history and culture of Indonesia. The author translates the national motto Unity in Diversity as “appearing as many, yet singularly one” instead of the usual “we are many but we are one.” Thus begins just one of the author’s many unorthodox departures from the conventional wisdom. A prolific writer, Anand Krishna has over 130 inspirational books to his credit. He is the founder of the Anand Ashram which now has more than 14 “wings” in Jakarta, Bogor, Yogyakarta and Bali, each charged with the mission of creating an enlightened society based on the universal values of peace, love and harmony. Anand makes his own interpretation of caste on Bali, likening the system to groups of professions-based people, somewhat like scholarly, scientific, social or political associations. He encourages people to remain true to their castes, i.e. true to their potentials, skills and capabilities. Thinking of castes like he does as trade unions indeed makes the system more acceptable. This writer is at his best and most provocative when he aims his provocative barbs at the powers that be, when he’s curmudgeonly. His writing style is like that of a newspaper reporter with frequent use of one-paragraph one-line declarative sentences. English is not his first language, the syntax is all his own, yet this somehow makes his writing more forceful. He rails against Balinese religious authorities who are able to rationalize the use of land for commercial purposes by merely getting priests and community leaders to sanctify the land first through certain rituals and religious ceremonies before building a resort, restaurant or spa. Anand takes a vehement stand against golf courses on Bali, maintaining that game started in Scotland where the climate and overall terrain are more conductive to golf. “Turning Bali into Scotland is certainly not intelligent,” he writes. Sometimes his hard-hitting social criticisms are buried so deep in his sermons that you must seek them out, as when he asserts that many social projects would not move an inch were they not funded by agencies inside and outside the country. “For these people, activism is a profession, so what can we expect of them?” he rightfully asks. Anand even transcends himself when he demands that a strong independent media should broadcast “what is in the interest of the people, not what interests the people,” and that corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a totally foreign concept in Bali as it is other parts of the archipelago. Among Anand’s more eccentric, yet probably sound pieces of advice: “Accept negativity as negativity. Shun positive thinking. Positive thinking gets you nowhere. Positive thinking is running away from the hard facts of life. Positive

thinking is flying from negativity, whereas negativity is as real an experience as positivity.” The author also asserts that when the sea level rises the liquids within our bodies also rise, that hypnotherapy should be used for psychic first aid, that masturbation should be the only sexual activity during one’s schooling. Whether these statements are true or not is left for reader to decide. The Wisdom of Bali is richly illustrated with high-quality photos, most of the tourist brochure variety, covering every aspect of the island’s everyday life, sea and landscapes, artistic performances, mythic statuary, priests conducting rituals, women praying, temples bedecked with offerings. All contributing photographers are Balinese.

I wished there was a glossary or index listing all the Sanskrit and Indonesian terms, which would make the book a valuable source of Bali Hindu doctrine. Neither does the contents define or explain the concepts discussed. Because terms are at times difficult to find in the text, the running heads can be used to indicate what concept is being explained on a given page. Anand is fond of citing the original derivation of words in order to come up with his own unique spin, taking us back to what he feels the tenet – whether it be Tri Kaya Parisudha, Suka Duka, Sekala Nisa, Nish Kama Karma, The Four Purusharthas, etc. - truly means instead of the what the mainstream believes it means. I feel the book needs footnotes or a bibliography so that the reader is able to source the experts the author quotes and alludes to. Such historical personalities as Jung, Freud, Socrates and Lao Tzu need no introduction, but who is the great scholar Dr. Newberg, the ancient sage Manu, and the neurosurgeon par excellence Dr. Setiawan?

The jacket copy and six full pages in the front are filled with endorsements for the book from the clergy, academics, writers of inspirational works, heads of religious foundations, Indonesian royalty and even former President Sukarno’s son. I will add my voice to this embarrassment of praise by recommending The Wisdom of Bali as an excellent introduction to the basic principles behind the modern practice of Bali-Hinduism and the problems and issues that the religion faces in the world today.

iPhone Apps.

More Gadgets Galore. In this issue I have some quality leather camera bags; a neat traveler’s one handed tripod; filters for your point-n-shoot digital camera; my favorite iPhone application; a nice (ok, very expensive) bed that cools itself; and a solar camera strap. Enjoy… Quality Cases Compact cameras may be pocketsized, but that’s not the safest (or most comfortable) place to store them. Camera bag maker Lowepro has a variety of camera cases and pouches just for point-and-shoots. If you’re going for looks, pick up one of the Napoli pouches (left). The stylish leather cases come in four sizes and range in price from $25-$40. If you need something more rugged, try the $30 Apex 60 AW(right) which can hold your camera as well as a few small accessories. US$25-40 Tripod for Travelers This collapsible monopod is a simple gadget for extending your camera’s reach. No more asking strangers to take your picture in front of landmarks. Just attach your camera to the end of the $25 Quik Pod, turn it to face you and your friends, and set the timer. You can also use it to get shots from up high and other angles you can’t normally reach. US$25 Filters To-Go You don’t need a DSLR to use filters with your camera. Cokin sells a magnetic filter system that’s compatible with most compact cameras. A small or medium metallic ring fits around your camera lens and keeps the filter holder in place. If your camera has a tripod socket, you can use the Digi Shoe Holder instead, which screws into the bottom of your camera. Both holders work with Cokin A-Series filters, which can be purchased in kits with the holders or separately. Stock up on color, infrared, diffraction, graduated, center-spot, and star filters.

I have an iPhone 2. Not a 3G or 3GS or iPhone4, just an old second hand iPhone 2. Yes, it’s thicker than the new ones, and, yes, a few apps don’t run on it, but I LOVE it. I bought it used for only US$300 last year and I use it every day and now every night. Here is the latest app that might make you run out and buy an iPhone. It’s called “Sleep Cycle”. You can buy separate gadgets that do the same thing but they cost around US$300. This little app for my iPhone was US$1! Here’s what it is – an alarm clock that analyzes your sleep patterns while you sleep and then wakes you up at the best possible time. It is the natural way to wake up, when you feel the most relaxed and rested. You just start the app and then place your iPhone under your pillow or sheet. Let’s say you want to wake up at 6:30AM. You set the apps alarm for that time and it will set off its alarm (several to choose from) between 6:15 and 6:45, when your sleep cycle is the closest to actually waking up naturally. So there is no more waking up feel tired and groggy. I wake up really refreshed and ready to go. So, go to iTunes and look for “Sleep Cycle”! iTunes US$.99

Canopi system cools the bed I suppose you could call this the canopy bed of the future, provided the future had the white and sterile look of certain science fiction films. The purpose of the “canopy” on this Canopi system bed isn’t for aesthetics, but designed to cool the bed itself. Think of it as a cooling blanket for a canopy bed, but the blanket lies on the canopy itself. Yes, that is the purpose of the big shelf thing over the bed. It is a cool air distributor, and it uses air from under the bed, and then cools it via a wall-mounted air conditioner. Now here is the kicker. The unit itself costs about $4,500, which is a pretty high price to pay. I don’t know if that is worth the price just to be cool at night. I suppose that if you live in a region of a hot climate like Bali, then it could be cheaper than leaving the air conditioner on, right? US$4,500 Solar Camera Strap If you like to take a whole lot of outdoor pictures until your battery dies and your neck ends up beet red, then this is the camera strap for you. It actually uses all that power the sun usually is using just to give you a nasty sunburn and charges your camera with it. The whole strap has a large flexible solar panel on it that’s just waiting to soak up a little sun. This design was created by Weng Jie. It could be used for those times when you need power for big events and don’t happen to have a spare battery handy. You could even just lay it out in a window when you’re not taking pictures to charge it up other times. Sadly, right now this is just a concept design, so it can’t be purchased just yet.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Ekstrem Wedda Brow! In Bali’s not so distant past, no one ever seemed to mention the weather. In fact, I’ve never heard a Balinese term for the concept of ‘weather’; people just say it’s hot or cold, without getting into any more details. Heralding from a country where with literally ‘four seasons in one day’, it sometimes felt like something was missing from the vocabulary. Not that I was missing crap, unpredictable weather of course. This seeming lack of interest in weather patterns made sense: weather was something that was predictable—there were two seasons, wet and dry, and not much planning was needed to cope with this change. If you staged an event, you made sure it would fall between March and September, and if you had to do something outdoors in other months (particularly for cremations), you engaged tukang terang: a rain stopper. Today, just like everywhere else in the world the weather patterns are up the shoot. ‘Ekstrem brow!’ a Balinese friend of mine cried last night as he peeled off his drenched t-shirt, muttering and shivering simultaneously…he then went on to wonder at the hail that fell in the middle of Denpasar last week. First it was an ice rink in Kuta; they’ll be skiing in Legian next… Now, even local newspapers include a weather forecast, which, in spite of only covering a measly 2 x 4cm, it still makes the front page. I googled weather in Bali and found a load of sites which feature long and short and long range forecasts, and even one with a history function (which didn’t seem to work, but nice thought anyway). Information means there must be a demand, so someone’s reading it. There may not yet be a Balinese word for weather, but, linguistic borrowing is sure to catch on: Don’t be surprised to hear Bali’s metro-kids of tomorrow anglicizing to each other, “Ekstrem wedda brow o?” Vaughan Hatch has immersed himself with Balinese culture, living with locals in Bali since 1997.

Local News Indonesia Promotes Disaster Tourism Indonesia appeals to visitors with tropical beaches, beautiful mountains, spectacular reefs and exotic cultures. But now the country, which lies along the Pacific Rim of Fire and suffers from frequent natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunami and volcanic eruptions, is courting tourists interested in viewing its harsher face. Near the central Javanese city of Yogyakarta, withered vegetation, buried villages, rivers choked with volcanic ash and stone, and refugee camps are the painful legacy of the recent Mount Merapi eruptions that killed over 350 people and made nearly 400,000 refugees. Yet local travel agencies are adding this as the latest feature of visits to Yogyakarta, seat of an ancient kingdom. “In the new volcano tour package, we’ll take customers to explore the closest village to the peak and see how bad the devastation is,” said Edwin Ismedi Hinma of the local tour agencies association.

result, tourist numbers in Yogyakarta fell as much as 70 percent, Hinma said. “Grief tourism,” however ghoulish it might seem, is far from uncommon. Similar trends were seen in Haiti, devastated by a powerful earthquake in January, as well as in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. But the idea has been criticized by some observers as unethical. In the case of Merapi, some officials also worry about lingering hazards. Curiosity about the eruption’s impact is certainly high. Scores of people have come out to devastated villages, clogging traffic to and from the mountain. “On Sunday, thousands of people come, they cause major traffic jams. I mean, if something happens, who can guarantee their safety?” said Bejo Wiryanto, head of Harjobinangun village about 5 km (3 miles) from Merapi’s peak.

“Then we’ll take them to a river to watch cold lahar flood pass,” he added, referring to volcanic debris flows. Tourism is big money in Indonesia, making up 3 percent of its gross domestic product, but the disasters prevent strong growth.

“I wish they could restrain their curiosity and wait until its safe. Plus, there are homeless people who are still traumatized by the eruptions who are probably still figuring out how to continue life.”

The latest eruption closed the local airport for two weeks due to volcanic ash-fall and even forced cancellation of international flights to Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta. As a

The Indonesian tourism ministry said the post-disaster policy is to wait until the recovery stage before trying to lure tourists back. (December 10th 2010)

Bashir Could Face Death Penalty on New Charges - More Terrorists Arrested After more than three months in detention, Abu bakar Bashir has been charged with inciting terrorism and financing a terrorist training camp discovered in Aceh at the start of the year. The radical Indonesian cleric Bashir will face trial next year on multiple counts of terrorism, including his alleged role in supporting a training camp for an armed group.

case against an Islamic militant they say was one of the most trusted lieutenants of notorious cleric Abu Bakar Bashir. The police say Abu Tholut was a long-term associate of Bashir. Along with Bali bomber Dulmatin, Tholut is accused of organizing training at the camp. Police say they have evidence he used money raised by Bashir to buy weapons and ammunition for the camp’s recruits.

Indonesian prosecutors have formalized the move against the cleric, who now faces the death penalty for charges which include planning or motivating others to commit terrorist attacks.

His skills as an explosives expert were honed at training camps in Afghanistan in the late 1980s, when the US-backed Mujahideen were fighting the Soviet occupation.

“We want to try him very quickly,” South Jakarta prosecutors office chief Mohammed Yusuf told reporters after the aged extremist presented himself under tight security to hear the formal charges against him.

Meanwhile in Solo, Central Java Indonesian authorities have arrested four Islamist militants suspected of having links to a top terrorist suspect captured last week, a police spokesman said Tuesday (14/12).

Dozens of heavily armed police and two armored vehicles were on hand as the alleged spiritual leader of Indonesian jihad was transferred from his prison where he has been on remand since August.

The arrests resulted from information obtained from the interrogation of Abu Tholut, who was captured Friday in a raid on a home in Central Java, said national police Maj. Gen. Iskandar Hasan.

He was arrested during an ambush on his convoy, with police suspecting his involvement in a paramilitary style training camp in Aceh. “The harshest allegation is that he incited others to commit crimes of terrorism, which carries the death penalty,” Mr. Yusuf said.

He identified the four as Anwar Effendi, Wardi, Sukirno, and Sri Puji Mulyo Siswanto. They are suspected of concealing information about terrorism and of hiding Tholut.

The trial is not expected to start for at least two months. Sporting his usual wispy white beard and Islamic attire, the frail 72-year-old was quoted by local media as saying Islam itself was “being terrorized” by the case against him. He says authorities are fabricating the case. The Al Qaeda in Aceh group featured some of South-East Asia’s most wanted terrorism suspects and was plotting Mumbai-style attacks on embassies, hotels and political figures in Jakarta, police have said. The bespectacled cleric served almost 26 months for conspiracy over attacks on Bali nightspots in 2002 that killed 202 people before being cleared and released in 2006. Indonesian police have also provided the first details of their

Effendi was captured Friday in Jakarta, while the three others were arrested Saturday outside the capital, he told a news conference in the Central Java town of Solo. Two assault rifles, a pistol, bullets and a car were seized from the four, Hasan said. Tholut, 49, also known as Mustofa, became one of the country’s most-wanted fugitives after alleged bomb makers Noordin Top and Dulmatin were killed earlier this year in a series of raids. He is accused of plotting high-profile assassinations and attacks on foreigners at luxury hotels in the capital. Petrus Golose of the National Anti-Terror Agency told the news conference that well-known radical Muslim cleric Abu Bakar Bashir was “the leader of the group.” Golose said police are still searching for at least two other suspects.

Junior WA Footballer dies in Bali Scooter Accident A promising young footballer killed in a motor scooter accident in Bali was not wearing protective gear, according to reports from the island. Mitchell Gillam, a popular and talented former student from Aquinas College, died in Bali from injuries he suffered in a motor scooter crash. Like hundreds of young Australian travelers in Bali, Mr. Gillam was apparently not wearing protective gear while out riding with a friend. He was missing for nearly two days and was found by a Balinese local in vegetation near ricefields. Mr. Gillam had been staying at The Bounty hotel in Kuta with several friends and went riding with a friend, Joel, on Tuesday (7/12). Joel, who has no recollection of the accident, found himself in hospital where he had surgery for a broken leg, but in the confusion told friends he had seen “Mitch” alive. Friends spent two days looking for Mr. Gillam, even posting messages on Facebook - while papers in Bali were reporting the discovery of a body. “Anyone that knew him loved him and will really miss him,’’ a relative said. (December 10th 2010) Australia Strong Supporter of RI’s Climate Change Initiatives Australia is a strong supporter of Indonesia`s efforts to address climate change and announced an allocation of $45 million to Indonesia as part of Australia`s $599 million fast start climate change financing. According to Australian Embassy media release in its official website on Friday (10/12), Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd said his country welcomed Indonesia`s strong leadership on climate change and the opportunity to build on Australia`s long-standing cooperation with Indonesia on reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) and climate change adaptation. “Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation - which accounts for 18 per cent of global emissions and more than 60 percent of Indonesia’s total emissions in 2005 - is critical to achieving a global outcome on climate change,” Rudd said. New funding of $30 million will extend support for our demonstration work in Kalimantan and accelerate joint work on Indonesia’s National Carbon Accounting System, taking Australia’s total support for Indonesia`s REDD+ efforts to $100 million. Speaking at the United Nations Climate Change negotiations in Cancun, the Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Minister, Greg Combet, said that developing a national carbon accounting system is critical to providing credible evidence of emissions reductions. “This will be a crucial part of our cooperation as it will enable Indonesia to monitor and measure the success of its efforts. Our existing support for Indonesia`s efforts positions Australia well to be a lead partner in the establishment of a new independent institution for forest measurement, reporting and verification in Indonesia,” Minister Combet said. (December 10th 2010) Australia Expected to Charge Indonesian Crew from Asylum Seeker Boat Three Indonesian crewmen from the asylum seeker boat that crashed on Christmas Island last week are likely to be charged by Australian police as authorities in Indonesia search for the people smuggler suspected of organizing the doomed voyage. Supt Gavan Ryan, the policeman leading the criminal investigation into the crash, in which at least 30 people died, said the director of public prosecutions would decide if the crewmen would face multiple charges of manslaughter and reckless endangerment of life. Australian and Indonesian police are also on the trail of the man suspected of arranging the trip from Java to Christmas Island. The authorities believe Ali Regi, a notorious people smugger who specializes in transporting Iranian and Iraqi Kurds to Australia, organized the voyage. Regi uses several different names and passes himself off as Iranian, although he may hail from Afghanistan. He is believed to be a senior member of a smuggling network that arranges accommodation and transport for asylum seekers. If Regi is located, it is likely that the government in Canberra will want to extradite him to face trial in Australia, which has much stricter people smuggler legislation than Indonesia.

Floods Hit Tabanan, Hail in Denpasar Flood waters have inundated the Tabanan District, Bali, and isolated around 200 families over the weekend. “Incessant heavy rains over the past few days have flooded the area,” Agus Mahendra of a local Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) command post, said here Monday (20/12). The flood reaching a height of up to one meter has paralyzed day activities of the local people. “We tried to lessen the depth by pumping out the floodwaters that are blocking the access roads,” he said. Meanwhile several areas in South Bali were hit by hail stones. The hail fell around Denpasar, Kerobokan, North Kuta, Badung Regency for about 30 minutes at 4pm on Thursday (16/12). “My grandson was crying, and said pebbles were landing on his head. Apparently there is hail in the form of granules,” one local man said. A local weather bureau spokesman Endro Cahyono urged people not to panic when the hailstones fell. “The hail is a common natural phenomenon in the tropics caused by comulonibus clouds some 300 meters above the city” he said. (December 20th 2010) American Man Gets Jail time for Blasphemy in Lombok An Indonesian court has sentenced an American businessman to five months in jail for marching into a mosque during Islamic prayers and ripping cables from the loud speakers. Gregory Lloyd Luke was found guilty of blasphemy. Mohammad Bilal, an official at the Praya District Court on Lombok, said the 64-year-old was given a relatively lenient sentence because he was apologetic and polite during the hearings. Luke, himself a Muslim, has a lodge for tourists on Kuta beach. He stormed into the nearby mosque during prayers on Aug. 26 and disabled the speakers, which he said were too noisy. A mob then attacked him and ransacked his house, causing an estimated $20,000 in damage. (December 16th 2010) Anak Krakatau’s Volcanic Smoke Reaches 1,000 meters High Mount Anak Krakatau started to become active again by spewing volcanic ashes reaching 1,000 meters high with seismic movements recorded up to 691 times on Saturday (11/12), an official said. In detail, the 691 seismic activities included 17 deep volcanic activity, 187 shallow volcanic activity, 61 outbursts, 31 tremors, seven harmonic tremors, and 388 blow outs. “The Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center (PVMBG) is still defining the condition,” he said. Areas around the volcano are still off-limits due to hazardous materials. “Volcanic materials came out of the volcano such as debris and rocks which cause severe burns therefore we have prohibited people including fishermen and tourists to come close to the disaster area,” he said. (December 11th 2010) Sharp Rise in HIV/AIDS Incidence in NTT The number of HIV/AIDS sufferers in East Nusatenggara (NTT) in 2010 (up to November) is recorded at 1,129 or up almost 100 percent from 646 in 2009, a local family planning official said. Some 21 percent of the number of cases in 2010 consisted of housewives, Markus Alibrandi, executive director of the East Nusatenggara branch of the Indonesian Family Planning Community (PKBI), said here. He said the deadly disease was now attacking people of all walks of life, including housewives, and therefore it was everybody’s duty to remain alert to the risk of contracting it and participate in efforts to curb its spread. Giving a breakdown of the number of sufferers according to their professions, he said 14 percent were farmers, 12 percent private sector employees, 9 percent commercial sex workers, 6 percent unemployed people, five percent public transport drivers, three percent ojek (motorcycle taxi) drivers, two percent police and servicemen, one percent sailors.

Australian Company Plans to Build 50 Villas in Lombok An Australian company plans to build 50 villas of international standard in South Lombok marine tourism resort in West Nusa Tenggara province, Central Lombok District Head H.M.Suhaili FT said on Sunday (12/12). The construction of the villas in Seger Kuta beach will employ Singaporean architects who are accustomed to designing building structures in the United States and China, he said. He expressed hope that the Australian investor will soon realize the project which will cost billions of rupiahs. He said he will assist the investor in taking care of a permit to build the villas. “The investor can build the villas first and arrange the permit later on. It is easy to arrange the permit and I give the assurance there will not be levies other than those specified in the existing regulation,” he said. He said the local authorities will soon set up a team of officials from relevant agencies to handle investment-related problems in Central Lombok. “We must also create conducive investment climate to attract investors to Central Lombok,” he said. (December 12th 2010) Australian Man, Thai Woman Face Death Penalty for Drugs in Bali An Australian boxing coach faces the death sentence for allegedly trying to smuggle more than 1.7 kilograms of methamphetamine into the country through Bali. Prosecutor Anak Agung Atmaja, reading the indictment at the Denpasar district court against Michael Sacatides, 43, said the defendant had tried to smuggle in the drug in four separate packages hidden in a compartment inside his luggage. “In the market, the value of the methamphetamine can reach some Rp 2.8 billion [$311,000],” Atmaja said. The defendant is accused of producing, importing or exporting Class I narcotics weighing more than five grams. Under the 2009 drug law, conviction could result in capital punishment. The secondary charge was storing, controlling or supplying Class I narcotics. Sacatides was arrested at Bali’s Ngurah Rai airport upon arrival on board an Air Asia flight from Bangkok on Oct. 1. Sacatides’s lawyer, Edwin Siregar, said his client claimed the drugs were not his and that he had borrowed the luggage from a friend identified as Akaleshi Tripathi in Bangkok. His client was only planning to spend four days in Bali. The trial resumes on Jan. 5, the court said. Meanwhile, the head of the airport’s customs and excise office, I Made Wijaya, said on Monday (20/12) that a Thai woman was arrested at the airport on Thursday trying to smuggle in 1,280 ecstasy pills worth a market price of Rp. 448 million. The woman was identified as Sophawat Ueamduean, 24, who arrived on board a Thai Airways flight from Bangkok. She tried to smuggle the pills in an unspecified number of large and small packages that she had swallowed, Wijaya said, but her nervousness gave her away. The pills were in plastic packages that were further wrapped in plastic tape. Sophawat, who said she worked as a dancer at a club in Bangkok, said she was promised 500 euros by the drugs’ owner, an Israeli identified only as Alex. She could also face the death sentence if convicted. Firdaus Amir, the head of the airport’s immigration office, said his office, in cooperation with the police and customs officials, has been paying special attention to passengers disembarking from flights from Bangkok. “Most of the customs office’s recent hauls are from passengers coming from Bangkok,” Firdaus said.

Letters To Bali Advertiser Survey Rudeness Dear Sir, I am a tourist here and I would like to tell you about something that happened to me and my friend yesterday in Nusa Dua as a warning to other travelers. Basically, what happened was my friend filled out a “survey” when approached by a young woman with a clipboard in Kuta on Monday. The following morning, she then received a phone call from a resort in Nusa Dua saying she had “won” a six day holiday there for up to six friends, which could be taken anytime within the next twelve months. They sent a car for her, and we traveled from Ubud to Nusa Dua and when we got there - promised a free lunch with “no obligations” - we were treated with genuinely astonishing rudeness!! We were treated with such hostility, that we actually walked out. I just want to warn others to think twice before they sign any of these “surveys” so they don’t end up in the same situation, being bullied by resort operators. Sincerely, JB - a very unhappy traveler Post, e-mail, fax or bring in your letters. Please address all to Letters To Bali Advertiser. Bali Advertiser will decide what to publish and will edit as needed.

Empowering Rural Communities By Michele Cempaka

According to the Ministry of National Education, as of 2010, there are currently approximately 8.3 million Indonesian people aged 15 and older, who are illiterate. Most of them live in small villages and usually work as farmers, fisherman or sell food on the street. On the island of Bali, many people who live in rural villages don’t have jobs and can’t afford to send their children to school. For them, life is a continuous struggle as they deal with issues of survival. ‘I’m an Angel’(IAA) is a Bali-based non-profit foundation which is dedicated to empowering rural communities as they strive to improve their standard of living amidst resource scarcity and socio-economic challenges. Asana Viebeke Lengkong, a 40 year resident of Bali and founder of IAA, began to provide dietary needs to rural communities in 1996 and continued to offer assistance during the height of the Asian economic crisis from 1997-1998. Even though access to rural regions was difficult, Viebeke was committed to supporting communities in need. From 1996 - 2002, Viebeke maintained the program with her own funds, supplying communities with basic health care and dietary needs. “Our vision is really in the context of sustainability to provide a comprehensive approach to the problems of poverty and environmental degradation,” says Viebeke. ‘I’m An Angel’ has succeeded in setting up some core programs which focus on the following: 1) empowering the community to promote government funding 2) promoting health development 3) and providing socio-economic growth through education.

The effectiveness of IAA’s and the government’s programs is undeniable. Many parents no longer feel a burden to send their children to school. Thus, more children are going and staying at school. When IAA’s program first began, there were only about 90 students. By the end of the year the enrollment dramatically increased to 250 students. Creating sustainable development is also a key factor in empowering communities. Through successful implementation of sustainable development, the foundation empowers communities to monitor their successes and ultimately encourage the Indonesian government to match donation funds. Another area which cannot be ignored is adequate health care for people living in rural areas. IAA strongly believes that through empowering and supporting the underprivileged with proper healthcare, the future of communities can be greatly improved. IAA assists with giving proper medication, vaccinations and education to those in need. In addition, they also provide medical professionals, mobile clinics and routine check-ups throughout the year. IAA is committed to helping reduce the infant/mother mortality rates by offering suitable education for pregnant women and new mothers. They also continue to provide underprivileged children with the necessary vitamins and nutrients to maintain a healthy diet. IAA currently works with 96 schools throughout Bali with 20,000 children who are orphans and disadvantaged. They have established a variety of quality educational programs and also provide many of the children with school books, stationery, shoes, and nutritional supplements including vitamin B complex, milk, eggs, soybean porridge and uniforms. Viebeke asserts that about 99% of the villagers are illiterate. In an effort to reduce this number, IAA offer classes to mothers who come with their toddlers to the multi-function center where children can play while moms learn how to read and write. “They aren’t educated and live in a secluded area, which makes it difficult for them to advance their lives. Our goal is to empower the villagers so that they can have a better quality of life and be able to meet their own basic needs,” says Viebeke.

IAA believes that it is essential to promote education throughout rural communities in order to ease poverty and increase socio-economic growth. Their goal is to empower children with the ability to learn by providing text books, writing equipment, school supplies, and uniforms, as well as making significant repairs to school infrastructures.

Another great program is the ‘Mobile Learning Center’ which goes around to different villages and schools in rural areas to teach people how to manage their garbage and how to understand the best way to care for the environment, as well as how to eat well and care for their own personal hygiene. In an effort to educate people on these important topics, IAA has published a series of 15 books for adults and children, which provide comprehensive information about the aforementioned topics, as well as on narcotics, HIV and reproductive health.

“The schools were our entry point. The government began to see what we were doing to help out children in the schools, and they got inspired to also put more attention into the education system,” says Viebeke.

In addition, IAA offers women’s empowerment programs which promote awareness and education regarding reproductive health, STD’s and breast cancer. They currently give funds to Prima Medika for the program: ‘Mammogram for All Bali’.

By 2005, the government established two significant educational programs called: ‘Batuan Operation Sekolah’ (BOS) for the renovation and infrastructure of schools and ‘Dana Alokasi Khusus’ (DAK), for the purpose of specific fund allocation. Both of these programs have been fundamental in the major school renovations that have occurred throughout Bali in the past five years. Children can now feel a sense of pride in their schools and be motivated to learn and do well.

IAA works together with Dr. Innesusanti from Yayasan Sehati who is supported by ‘Rotary Japan Women’s Health Mobile Clinic’ with the goal of helping women become empowered to make their own health a priority in their lives.

Children learn with educational toys

“We also do general healthcare for women. We encourage men to come too, so that they can be checked for general health conditions like rheumatism, skin problems, respiratory track infections, etc. Our goal is to reach all people in need,”

says Viebeke. In addition, IAA provides income generating programs for women which are nurtured through really understanding the needs of people. The goal is to help women understand that they can get out of their poverty if they learn how to manage their income well. IAA offers micro-financing to encourage communities to build co-operatives and create successful sustainable income through animal husbandry businesses focusing on cows or pigs, or handicraft businesses. “Two years ago we gave a group of people money to set up their businesses and they have already given it back to their cooperative because their businesses have become totally sustainable,” says Viebeke.

School kids with Viebeke

I’m An Angel has assisted 86 villages throughout Bali, educating children, empowering villagers to create sustainable income and providing free healthcare for those in need. In 2003, KU DE TA decided to give their support to IAA and staged the first ‘I’m An Angel’ fundraiser raising just over USD $20,000. Along with providing the venue and accommodation for entertainers, KU DE TA also gathered together many local merchants and private donors to participate in this charitable cause. Mr. Yawahar Punjabi, Mr. Mike Mohan and Claude Challe generously provided the entertainment for the evening celebration. Things got even better at the second annual KU DE TA fundraiser, which surpassed all expectations with over USD $30,000 raised. With a substantial increase of aid provided for 2005, the funds from IAA would be available for on-going support for disadvantaged people not only in the Karangasem region, but throughout all of Bali. Perhaps it is Asana Viebeke Lengkong’s philosophy which is prominently stated on the website that makes ‘I’m An Angel’ a truly effective organization for helping disadvantaged people throughout Bali and beyond. “We do not give, we share, and with this strategy, we empower the community to think and help themselves.” To find out more about Yayasan ‘I’m An Angel’ please visit: To make a donation, please contact Jocelyn Cunningham at: or by calling +62 (0)361 736969.

Safari Lite: Bali’s Little Bit of Africa Africa is closer than you think. If you follow the bumpy perpetually unfinished highway running along the southeast coast of Bali to a village in the middle of nowhere with the unlikely name of Herzliya, turn in at the sign announcing the Bali Safari & Marine Park, this will be about as close as you will get.

animal enclosures of swinging gibbons, bears and lions resting in caves, grazing antelope and ostriches, a group of tigers dozing in a shelter, finally traversing a pond of wallowing hippopotami. We definitely weren’t in Bali anymore.

was only the beginning of a massive collaboration of 150 performers. Back stage, as well as chambers underneath, were used as assembly areas for scene changes that take place right before your eyes.

Starry Night Safari

The safari part started soon after we pulled into the big parking lot, looking around in vain for the entrance to the Mara River Lodge. Cars were not permitted inside the park, so we boarded a land rover that traveled up through a grand winding forest road past bas reliefs of ancient kingdoms carved into rock faces. It was at that point that I stopped resisting and surrendered wholeheartedly to the make believe world of the park. The lobby of the Mara River Lodge was decked out with a stuffed lion, zebra skins, warrior masks and Masai spears. A guy in a spiffy khaki uniform and pith helmet drove us in an electric powered car to our lodge, actually a Xhosa round hut with conically shaped roof, one of a number along an L-shaped perimeter.

Both a walk-through and a drive-through wildlife park, the environment is a natural and shady haven for incarcerated animals, albeit they don’t have to work for a living. Unlike Africa’s big game reserves, there’s no rolling golden savannah grass, flat-topped trees, native Askari armed guides, and you don’t get to see animals killing each other. Wildlife is visible from almost every vantage point - from the walkways, swimming pool, massage parlor, restaurants. Three of Africa’s Big Five (lion, elephant and rhino) are super easy to spot, as if served up on a platter.

Suddenly a banyan tree, forest and village houses materialized with live quacking ducks, fighting cocks, fishermen paddling canoes, farmers working paddy – the actions of the players reflected in the pool in the front. Haunting music totally enveloped the audience. Appealing to the increasing numbers of Chinese visiting Bali, the story line recounts the tragic 12th century marriage between a Balinese king and a Chinese princess. Enormous seagoing junks appeared amidst ostentatious pageantry. Later in the show the fleet, attacked by sea monsters, crosses a vast ocean of churning waves.

At 6 pm we climbed into a battered all-terrain vehicle for the Night Safari. Piled on the seat were the usual buckets of carrots. We stopped in the open refuge area and fed the carrots through the window to a half dozen hungry zebras which had surrounded our vehicle and the one in front. We were part of the herd. A little later all of in both vehicles became part of the African scene in front of the restaurant, fully visible to the diners. Our guide shoved a stick pierced with fatty dripping meat at a waiting overfed lioness. Sitting the closest, I could smell her putrid breath as she stood up on her back legs against the caged window and clawed at the food.

The extravagant production is a clever blending of the Chinese, Balinese and Javanese civilizations, combining elements of wayang and dazzling special effects, all seamlessly flowing into one another. Actors in oriental

The Grande Dame of Bali’s Animal Parks

Afro touches were visible at every turn. It was like playing a Where’s Waldo? game trying to find the motifs - impala horn lamps and door handles, spear head curtain rods, stick chairs and tables, kraal-style crockery, paintings of elephants, giraffes and masks on walls, pillowcases and shower curtains. Amenities included two air-conditioners, a flat-screen TV mounted above the bed, fridge, coffee and tea service, but no reading lamp – the bane of Indonesian hotels! Our guide told us not to eat the basketful of scrawny carrots on the table. “They’re for the animals,” he said. Our windows faced a big open muddy wildlife refuge full of wallowing pits, watering holes, rock formations and thatched animal shelters. A broken down land rover had been abandoned in the middle, giving the impression that its occupants had barely escaped with their lives. Later that afternoon, elephants slogged slowly across our front. Surrounding us was lush vegetation and coconut palms. My wife threw some carrots from our balcony over the perimeter fence to some milling zebras. No sounds of cars, trucks, music, chanting, not even the ubiquitous Bali motorbike could be heard. A fast flowing brook gurgled below. Beyond a river on the other side of the road were five meter tall elephant grass, treetops and waving green as far as the eye could see. Dining in the Tsavo Restaurant early that evening, we gazed out a curving 60-meter long floor-to-ceiling window at a quintessential African tableau: lions perched on ledges of a rock cliff. The eerie beating drums and the loud muffled roars of the big cats could be heard through the glass. Guests vied for tables near the window so they could get close up views. The next morning we woke to twittering birds and the obscene belching of wildebeests. Two gigantic 2000 kg rhinoceros and frolicking zebras could be seen and more mounted elephants sauntered by. A solitary stork sat on top of a pinnacle of boulders and was to remain there immovable as a statue for the whole two days we were there. After breakfast we walked to Kampung Gadja, an elephant trekking, education and feeding center. A mother and its calf approached us from the other side of a rope, expecting carrots from the half-meter high stack on a table. We followed the roadway, crossed a bridge over an elephant assembly area, but when we reached a T-junction the driver of a maintenance truck told us to turn back. Park employees on top of a long line of approaching elephants gave us the same warning. The map was not to scale and we had wandered into a restricted area of lions, tigers and bears. Oh, my! We found our way back to the main path down to the Toraja Terminal and took the Safari Journey, a half hour tour of the park on a guided a/c bus. We drove by spacious outdoor

In a rural area about 20 km northeast of Denpasar, this sprawling theme park encapsulates three zoological regions of the world - Africa, India and Indonesia. With 400 different animals, the park also plays an important role in animal conservation efforts. This is wildlife-viewing with a conscience. Starting from the lodge, the property rambles down through 40 hectares to the main gate with family-friendly attractions all along the way – the Ranthambore White Tiger, Komodo Dragon enclosure, trained camel and pony rides, jungle cruise, restaurants, Bali Market, kid’s water park, amusement rides, freshwater aquarium and a replica of Bali’s sacred Tampaksiring bathing place. At intervals along the way we passed “animal encounters” or print stations where your photo may be taken with baby orangutans and white tigers. The clean, smoothly managed high-tech park has placed wide screen monitors at intervals displaying maps, info and up-to-date announcements. The African theme is faithfully echoed throughout. Signage is in Swahili and all park vehicles are painted in zebra stripes. Walkways are covered in netting and open spaces and even entertainment rides are fitted out with cool mist sprayers to give visitors respite from the midday heat. Voted “Indonesia Leading Amusement Park” in ITTA awards in 2010, BSMP gives more natural space to animals and its layout is on a grander scale than the other animal parks and zoos of Bali. The marine portion of the park, located nearer the entrance, is due to be completed next year. It was Sunday and the walkways were filling up fast with Indonesian families, so we hurried to make the free 20-minute Educational Show at the Hanuman Stage beginning at 11 am. Even though it was open air, there was standing room only. Pigeons and hornbills swooped down from above. Parades of guinea pigs traipsed across the stage. Pre-adult orangutans ambled around. Trained cats ran up a conduit. A little girl was called up, given big protective gloves and an eagle landed on her hand. We wished we had brought the kids. A New Kind of Wayang Theater

costumes and celestial fairies synchronized with the movements of tiny gold-clad Balinese legong dancers and flamboyant entrances of a Chinese dragon and Balinese Barong. A long-bearded sage and a curious little boy are the only actors talking. The old man, responding to the boy’s questions, narrates in the deep sonorous voice of a puppet master. As in Javanese traditional theater, the other players express their roles in pantomime. But this is live theater in which cattle, elephants, camels, snakes, eagles and hornbills take part, making their entrances and exits amidst smoke, bubbling water, wavering shadows, shooting light beams, statues rising from the floor, giant Landung puppets and grotesque centipede-like insects. This thrilling hour-long phantasmagoria, from beginning to end, leaves one at a loss of words. Practicalities Bali Safari & Marine Park, Jl.

Opening hours: 9 am-5 pm weekdays, 8:30 am-5 pm weekends. If coming from Denpasar, take a left just after Masceti Beach. Transport: US$15 from almost anywhere in south Bali (reservations: tel. 0361-950000). The basic package “Jungle Hopper” ($35) is limited but satisfying for a half-day visit by just paying for the extras like photos with the animals, elephant rides, etc. The most inclusive is the “Rhino” ($99). Take the Safari Journey in the morning or the afternoon when animals are most active and the light for photography is best. More animals - over 60 species – can be seen on the Safari Journey than on the Night Safari.

In the mid-afternoon, we joined the throngs heading for the Bali Theater, a gigantic green box in the middle of the park dominating the whole landscape - the largest modern stage on the island – to see the much ballyhooed Bali Agung performance. As the audience took their seats, the show opened with the rippling cadence of a gamelan orchestra. Offerings were laid on each side of the wide stage, then the rhythm quickened as a whole royal court and its retinue (including 10 elephants) began a long and stately parade. The procession circled around to behind a giant curtain where it appeared again as moving shadows.

Visitors with KITAS get 50% discount, the same as children. The $180 it costs to stay in the one of the lodges is good value because each member of the family has to pay $35 for the Safari tour alone – that’s already $140 for a family of four.

Just as in Indonesian traditional wayang theater, the outline of a huge Khayangan symbol, visible through the screen, signaled the start of the actual performance. Accompanied by thunderous music, the curtain dissolved as tottering animal figurines hovered magically over a shimmering waterhole. This


Bali Agung is performed at the Bali Theatre in the park from Thursday to Sunday. Tickets: US$39 during the promotional period until March 2011. For info, call 0361-950-000 or visit Show starts at 2:30 pm, convenient for those visiting the park for both half day or full day.
