THE ROAD TO RECOVERY CRASH! BANG! BOOM! OUCH OUCH OUCH! We’ve all been falling down since we were babies and having accidents ever since. Some of us reckless creatures have more accidents than others. Probably the most common accidents in Bali involve a motorbike, followed by surfing, sports or simply slipping on a wet floor and falling. The most common injuries are a sprained ankle or wrist, lower back or shoulder injury. If you’re one of those reckless people like me, you’re bound to wind up with an injury at sometime. The question now is where do you go to find someone to help you recover? I had an unusual accident a few months ago with a horse and dislocated and fractured my shoulder. As it turned out my injury was pretty serious and led me on a long and winding road to recovery. I was dismayed when the doctor told me that it may take four to six months for my shoulder to return to normal. I desperately wanted to find someone with a magic wand who could just zap my shoulder and instantly fix it. I wanted my shoulder to function normal again NOW. Thus began my search for a healer who could restore my shoulder to normal as quickly as possible. Several healers advise people who have just suffered an accident to get treatment as soon as possible to start the healing process. This was my mistake; I was advised after the bandage was removed 2 weeks after my accident to be careful in moving my arm to prevent the joint popping out of the socket again. As a result the muscles in my shoulder shortened from lack of use and made my healing process much longer than necessary. Here I’ll share with you some gifted healers in Bali that may help you if you should have an accident (heaven forbid) or are in pain. The orthopaedic surgeon recommended I go to physio therapy at a chiropractor’s office in Seminyak, as this was the closest to my home. However, two weeks of ultra sound and tens treatments didn’t reduce my pain. The chiropractor felt that my injury was too fresh to do any adjustments at this point and advised me that it would take time. Now what? I met an intuitive woman healer who informed me that my scapula (shoulder blade) was out of place. That sounded scary. She told me about an osteopathic doctor and gave me his number. I knew that there are many chiropractors in Bali but I had no idea that there were any osteopaths here. All I knew about osteopathy was their work was similar to chiropractic but gentler. With the terrible pain I was experiencing, gentle sounded good and I wanted to learn more about these healers. Osteopathy is a whole body system of manual therapy which was founded in the US in the late 1800’s by doctor, Andrew Still. Dr Still was disappointed by orthodox medicine at the time and looked for a new manual “wholistic” way of restoring patients to health. He fully focused on anatomy and as such could be described as the first scientific bonesetter. Osteopathy places its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body, namely that structure and function are interdependent. All anatomical, physiological, and psychological relationships are fundamentally designed to work in harmony. Diseases, pain and disabilities arise from disruptions to this equilibrium. Specific hands-on procedures are used to identify where a patient’s structure has been disturbed, then gentle manipulative techniques are employed to adjust joint and tissue imbalances, providing the correct conditions for healing. Osteopathy is slowly getting more and more prevalent in Europe and Australia as it is considered one of the most “serious” of alternative therapies but it already is a primary health care discipline in the UK and even more in the US where all osteopaths are also medical doctors. Osteopathy is good for everything except problems requiring surgery especially treating sports injuries from surfing, yoga and Pilates and motor accidents, post operative surgery and pregnancy. It treats more than muscular skeletal problems using subtle energies. This effective treatment can often resolve a problem in sometimes just one or a few visits. A friend directed me to Somatopathie, a very subtle form of

Osteopathy from France and is practiced by a few q u a l i f i e d practitioners here in Bali. I was surprised at the feather touches used on my head and body to read my body’s history. Memories of every injury you’ve ever sustained are stored in the tissues as well as the memories of my ancestors, which are stored in the organs. I was amazed to be asked about my grandmother. What did she have to do with my shoulder problem? Apparently any injury in present time can stir up symptoms from a past trauma, including my ancestors. It’s believed that family behaviour passed on through generations, effects genetic coding and should be taken into consideration of behaviour in the present. Somatopathie is based on Primary Respiratory Movement, which is used to feel the micro movements of the body to diagnose imbalances and through soft touches restore balance. They are able to treat anything except ailments requiring surgery such as all joint, organ and sensory problems. They can even work on a broken bone while it’s in a plaster treating people of all ages including an unborn baby while still in the womb. Email: A very popular natural born healer is known by the name of Pak Sircus. I first met this smiling man in 1997 after suffering a broken arm and have returned numerous times for various ailments over the years. Following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father he began his healing career in 1992 by intuitively inheriting his forebear’s knowledge. Indonesians and foreigners alike flock to his home on a daily basis to have his gifted hands work on them. He uses his feelings to diagnose each person who lies down on the mat on his veranda. It’s like he has ex-ray vision, without asking what your problem is he “just knows”. You don’t need to worry about not speaking Indonesian during your visit; Pak Sircus has learned some English and even a little Russian to communicate. He has a unique style of telling jokes to make you laugh just before he’s going to inflict pain by twanging your nerves, sending an electrical jolt through you. Don’t worry, the pain is short lived and you actually feel better after your treatment. Between 15 -40 people a day seek his healing for ailments for anything from feeling tired to broken bones, tirelessly working non-stop until everyone has been treated for donations, which are left in a small alter room behind his work mat. He lives near the Canggu Club so you can ask any local in the area where his house is. If you’re suffering from any kind of pain, Lydia Wilson can certainly offer relief. She’s a transpersonal hypnotherapist, who has been professionally practicing for fifteen years and teaching for ten. It may be that your body is expressing itself through chronic or repetitive pain, which actually has an emotional basis. If so, once the emotional root causes are released, it will permanently heal. She also uses Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) more commonly known as “Tapping” to alleviate pain, fear or cravings. By simply tapping on acupuncture points on the face and hands and repeating a verbal process the pain miraculously disappears. Anybody can learn this simple tool for pain relief. For information contact her at or email: bluelight7@gmail. com In desperation for help I went to a friend asking for advice on where to find someone to help me. She recommended Rumah Lulur by Bali Tangi and to ask for Juni, a male therapist there who has been relieving shoulder and lower back pain problems for Capoeira Brazilian martial art participants and other sports injuries. The other two male therapists on staff are Ari and Komang, who

also handle injured clients. I immediately called and made an appointment with Juni and was happy to discover that he is indeed very talented in massage and was able to get a little more movement from my frozen shoulder after just one massage. He also has a really good heart and offered to help rehabilitate my shoulder with more massages. or call 0361-763574/082145996888 for a reservation. They’re located on Sunset Road at the corner of Iman Bonjol. In the Seminyak area I met a wonderful traditional massage healer who has a small clinic on Gang Baik Baik, opposite Bintang Supermarket close to Villa Sunset and Villas Kubu. Hailing from Singaraja, Pak Putu began studying massage from his grandfather the local healer thirty years ago. Putu’s intuitive massage isn’t just relaxing it very therapeutic. He has had success in treating stroke, stress, frozens h o u l d e r, l o w e r b a c k problems, headaches, sleep problems and now is working with disabled children. When I first met him he told me that he could free my frozen shoulder in 6 treatments. He kept his word. Since meeting Putu I’ve recommended a few friends to go to him for massage with everyone reporting that he has helped them. Call Putu for an appointment 081338527069 or email: putubali. There’s a new physiotherapy clinic in Seminyak which just opened on the corner of Sunset and Jalan Nakula called Freedom From Pain Solutions: Bali Bodywork. Pak Mujianto comes from Solo but has been working in Bali since 1999 and over the years he has learned special techniques for fast recovery. He says that a minor injury can be mended in 5-10 days or longer for more serious problems. He primarily treats back and neck pain, herniated disc, scoliosis, sports injuries and headaches. His tools of the trade include ultra-sound, tens, infrared and laser for the regeneration of the cells and to reduce swelling and pain. I had a minor accident a week prior to meeting him and still had a sprained wrist for him to show off his healing skills. Within twenty minutes under the infrared lamp and massage my wrist was feeling much better. He also alleviated the migraine I had been experiencing for three days. Email: mujiantofisio@ or call for an appointment 08174742090 Lucky Ubud residents, you have an amazing healer in your midst, Dr. Adolf Brown at the Yoga Barn. He is a holistic chiropractor and specializes in Applied Kinesiology and Craniosacral Therapy, which is a hands-on healing system developed by the osteopaths. It involves very light touch mainly on the sacrum and cranium (skull) for long periods of time to facilitate deep facial unwinding. The bones of the cranium fit together like a jigsaw puzzle and move very subtly in response to the pulsation of the cerebrospinal fluid. The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by a fascial membrane called the dura, which contains the cerebrospinal fluid. It attaches inside the cranium and at the sacrum, thus the term “cranio-sacral” therapy, because this is where you can most directly feel its movement. Movement of the bones of the skull, sacrum and the dural membranes circulates the cerebrospinal fluid throughout the body. The biodynamic CST practitioners say that cerebrospinal fluid is the purest substance of the body and effectively a liquid crystal. CST can treat a wide range of conditions such as physical or emotional trauma, and can facilitate powerful spiritual transformations. He has had great success in healing muscular-skeletal pain, chronic injuries, food allergies, digestive problems, chronic infections, skin problems, immune deficiencies. fatigue, and much more.

Trishna Michael Winterbottom is a prominent English screenwriter and director, who usually has to rely on British Government funding to get his esoteric films off the ground. Sometimes, these movies can be brilliant works of art, such as ‘24 Hour Party People’ (2002), or, they can be absolute fiascos, like ‘9 Songs’ (2005). Winterbottom’s latest movie falls on the brilliant side. In ‘Trishna’, Winterbottom adapts Thomas Hardy’s 19th century realist novel, ‘Tess of the D’Urbervilles’, and places it in a contemporary Indian location. For this movie version, an Indian playboy is managing his father’s chain of luxury hotels, and, as he moves from one hotel to another, he takes with him his naïve mistress. To avoid scandal, the playboy forces his mistress to work as a maid in each hotel they stay at, but, as time progresses, he starts to treat her despicably, and, this is to have dire consequences. Indian actors Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed give dazzling performances as the mismatched lovers, while, Winterbottom’s Bollywood vision of modern-day India is spectacular. Hansel & Gretel, Witch Hunters Director Tommy Wirkola takes the fairy story, ‘Hansel & Gretel’, and gives it a new twist, by placing it in a Past or Future Post-Apocalyptic setting. As children, Hansel & Gretel have a nasty encounter with a witch who lives in a house made of candy. After finally killing her, the movie whizzes forward in time, and, Hansel & Gretel are now adults, who have become fully-fledged witch hunters. The mayor of a small village hires them to rid his hamlet of a plague of evil witches which they are enduring. Hansel & Gretel take to their task with much delight. Tommy Wirkola’s movie features fabulous sets and costumes, and, lots of marvelous mechanical gadgetry. There is lots of silly comedy, and, lots of ghastly violence. On the whole, the movie is lots of fun. Metpo One of the branches of the Moscow Metro runs beneath a river, and, it has sprung a leak. Water is rapidly filling up the tunnels. After encountering the water, a subway train comes to a shuddering halt, and, the passengers are all trapped in an underground labyrinth. They must find some way to get back to the surface, before they are all drowned by the rising water. This Russian movie is an excellent example of an American style ‘disaster’ movie. All of the elements of the genre have been faithfully followed, though, sometimes, the director throws in homages to moments from classical Russian cinema. I cannot tell you who this director is, as the credits are written in some weird form of Russian, and are not translated. The subtitles are not all that helpful either, but, as this is a highly visual movie, they are not all that important.

I was driving with a visitor through the south of Bali recently when he remarked that many of the new houses built on the rice fields looked as if they were designed for some dreary North American suburb. Sadly, this is true. Too many of the homes being built here over the past few years are not only ugly, but designed without the good ventilation that make them appropriate for tropical living. Unnecessary air conditioning eats up a lot of Bali’s dwindling supply of electricity. And the architects use a lot of natural forest wood, much of which is illegally logged.

Kingdom). About 50% of Indonesia is classed as forested, a reduction from 70% in 1990. Much of the wood from the meranti trees that made Western Indonesia so rich in timber ended up as plywood. The country is still losing one percent of what remains each year.

The demand for reclaimed wood in Bali and elsewhere may actually be fuelling greater destruction of the forests, instead of the reverse

your design fit your material, not your material fit your design. Always remember to use timber appropriately -- hard water-resistant timbers outside, softer timbers inside.” Indonesia is a land of volcanoes so sand, gravel, rocks and therefore concrete are all more sustainable than they would be elsewhere, and plantation timbers and bamboo are also ideal building materials.

“Tropical forests grow very slowly and for long-term sustainability need to be harvested very lightly, which is usually not economic for industrial timber companies,” says Cam. “So it is extremely difficult to find examples of sustainable forestry. The shrinking timber supply and booming demand have led to increasing amounts of illegal timber on the market, much of it from protected areas. If you buy wood from a timber merchant, there’s a good chance it’s from illegal sources. Teak is generally OK, in terms of impact on remaining natural forests, since it all comes from plantations.

Bali now offers a few options for those who choose to build ethical, energy efficient homes. Little Tree Bali on Sunset Road is a great resource. And Ubud now has its own ethical building and design centre. Kalimantan Recycled Timber (Kaltimber for short) opened the doors to its new green building, design and home wares showroom in May, offering certified recycled wood and many building and design options. Kaltimber is the creation of husband and wife team Alex Ryan and Yoga Sofyar, both grass roots environmental activists, who met in the interior of Kalimantan while working on forest protection and indigenous rights issues 18 years ago. When they starting planning to build their house in Bali in 2010, they realized that this was their opportunity to walk their talk by designing and building a home with the lowest environmental impact they could manage. In consultation with environmental builder Dave Hodgkin they created a low-impact home made from local and reclaimed materials and 100% recycled wood. First, though, they had to find the wood. Yoga’s family live in Kalimantan, and gradually they located old ironwood wharfs and warehouses that were slated for demolition. These were carefully knocked down and each piece of wood identified before being shipped to Bali. While building their home Yoga and Alex realized that there was a growing demand for recycled wood and their business Kaltimber was created. Kaltimber legally and ethically sources and supplies reclaimed hardwoods from demolished warehouses, jetties, water towers and other structures in Kalimantan. Yoga’s family personally supervises the demolition, then completes all the paperwork to provide a verifiable chain of custody for each piece. Most of the wood is termite-resistant timber such as the extremely hard Kalimantan ironwood (ulin), bengirai, keruing, kamper and other tropical hardwoods. The Kaltimber warehouse, workshop, sales office and showroom aspire to become a centre of excellence for good building and design -- and good wood. “Kaltimber is about community, ethics, partnerships and supporting low-impact local businesses,” Alex explained to me. “We work and share showroom space with excellent people from Threads of Life, Bali Recycling, Lou Zeldis textiles, Mariko Ceramics, East Bali Cashews, Diego Yoffe and Naruse.” Kaltimber’s main product is ironwood/ulin, one of the hardest woods known and probably the slowest-growing tree in the world. It grows at less than two mm a year, so it takes about 100 years to achieve a diameter of 20 cm (eight inches) and the trees probably live for 1,000 years. The massive trees that were felled for building those jetties and warehouses were many hundreds of years old. Ulin is in high demand for building in Bali and is now under risk. It’s red-listed by the International Union of Nature Conservation as threatened with extinction. No one is starting plantations of this very slow growing wood. Using new ulin wood in building is not just illegal, it’s a crime against nature. According to botanist Cam Webb, Indonesia is probably the most biodiverse country in world with around 8,000 tree species (compared to about 40 native species in the United

“If buying tropical timber, be sure it is certified. The sad fact is that in future most remaining lowland forests will be in Dave stresses, “The most sustainable way to build here is to concessions, as the premium price for certified timber acts as build ‘less house’. This can be interpreted as building a smaller house, although a better solution would be to build a an incentive for better, sustainable management.” house made from less. Use fewer walls, create more outdoor Alex filled me in on the politics of old and new ironwood. “The living spaces and more gardens both inside and out. current laws for both new and reclaimed wood are, quite Basically, break down the barrier between inside and outside frankly, not that great and wide open to loopholes as a recent and merge more seamlessly with Nature. trip to Kalimantan showed me,” she pointed out. “I met with traders who were exploiting a 2008 regulation from the “There is no excuse for air conditioning here in Bali,” he Ministry of Forestry on inter-island trading of ulin. They were stated. “Create more open spaces, design with good busy setting up deals with local communities to replace their ventilation and orient the house with vertical shade barriers 15 year-old ulin roads and bridges with new ulin, then selling to the East and the West to minimize heat and maximize the old stuff to the Bali reclaimed wood market. The old wood energy efficiency.” was pulled up as the new stuff was being simultaneously laid down. One trader told me, ‘We can’t send it out of Kalimantan, We learned that painting was very bad for the environment. but we can replace the old wood with new and send that out “Much of the world’s pollution is a result of our painting things. instead!’ Much of this imported reclaimed wood ends up in White and yellow hues are made of aluminum oxide, and aluminum is not good. It takes an enormous amount of the Bali. electricity to make it.” “We got into the reclaimed wood trade because we saw it as a way to re-use an old and valuable material, thus reducing Alex also talked about metal versus wood. “Look at the details. demand on the need for new wood.

The first thing he said was, “Accept your own hypocrisy. There are no easy solutions. There is no such thing as an eco-friendly house. The best you can do is build less house by creating more outdoor living space and use recycled materials.”

“There is no excuse for air conditioning here in Bali,” He explained the four guiding principles of responsible building. Does the option I am choosing A) reduce the use of non renewable resources B) reduce the use of non renewable energy C) reduce the impact on biodiversity D) reduce the use of long chain polymers far from the natural biocycle? “Recycled timber clearly meets these requirements, but remember ‘reusing’ the wood in the proportions you found it is a much more sustainable option than cutting it down to size,” Dave says. “In other words, wherever possible make

TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia by Bill Dalton

Volcanoes of Indonesia by Andrew Wight and Chris Smith, photographed by Carl-Bernd Kaehlig As one of the very few books that deal exclusively with the subject, it’s only fitting that Volcanoes of Indonesia starts out with a singularly hair-raising ascent of the 3,678-metre perfect cone of Semeru - the highest volcano on Java. Gasping for oxygen in the thin atmosphere, climbers gaze out on a cold, windy and forbidding landscape of falling grey volcanic ash as a poisonous gas-filled cloud drifts towards them. Before this landmark publication, not a single photo book on Indonesian volcanoes covering such a large part of the country has ever been published. Even photo books on specific volcanoes are rare. This book covers not just widely known and easily accessible volcanoes, but all of Indonesia’s volcanic regions. The only other publication that even comes close to the volume of detail is Catalogue of References on Indonesian Volcanoes with Eruptions in Historical Time (Minister of Mines and Energy 1979). Straddling a large portion of the intensely volcanic “Ring of Fire” with 180 active volcanoes - the highest number of any country - most Indonesians live and die within sight of some of the world’s most notoriously violent and unpredictable “fire mountains.” The greatest concentration of volcanoes lies in Java, Indonesia’s most populous island with around half of its nearly 250 million inhabitants. Of the island’s 50 volcanoes, there are a dozen over 3,000 m high. The archipelago is the site of the earth’s two greatest volcanic cataclysms, Krakatoa in 1883 and Tambora in 1815 - the biggest explosion known in historic times. Each year an average of 10 major eruptions occur in which falling hot lava, stones and ash kill at random by burning or suffocation as well as damaging crops, infrastructure and property. But not only do Indonesians confront hellfire eruptions. Clouds composed of glowing gas travel down slopes at speeds of more than100 kph and reach temperatures over 1,000°C, swiftly obliterating all life in their paths. Sinister poisonous gas emissions can steal unseen down slopes and wipe out whole villages. Heavy tropical rains that follow eruptions quickly erode soft ash, turn into mudflows that rush swiftly down river valleys, swallowing everything in their path. Deep crater lakes are breached by flood erosion and earthquakes to form even larger lahar. But all this volcanic activity not only destroys, but also brings great benefits to the “Spice Islands.” Millennia of eruptions and erosion have furrowed steep, ash-covered mountain slopes, which carry chemical-rich volcanic sediment by way of irrigation canals to be continually deposited on the highly fertile soil of the lowlands. The cooler climate on the slopes precipitates rainfall and nourishes huge plantations of tea, timber and a cornucopia of edible and other commercial plants. Trapped heat under the earth is an almost limitless source of alternative geothermal energy. For over 750 years on Java, Hindu statues, monuments (candi), temple complexes and sacred bathing pools were constructed out of cooled lava rock (andesite) ideal for carving. These scattered remains are often found in secluded locations high in the mountains. A brilliant fact-filled introduction provides a necessary counterpoint to the hundreds of book’s photographs, covering the latest theories of how Krakatoa and Tambora erupted, the development of ancient Java Hindu and Bali

Hindu civilizations, the diversity of mountain topography, the physical attributes of the archipelago’s most famous volcanoes, detailed descriptions of climbs - all that is noteworthy about the country’s volcanoes and how they have profoundly molded its inhabitants and commerce. The volume is further divided into individual chapters; Sumatra/ Krakatoa, West Java, East Java, Bali, Lombok and the Outer Islands. Concise 250-word capsule summaries of these main volcanic regions address each area’s history, culture, ethnography, religion, language, accessibility, flora and fauna, agriculture, climate, nature reserves and geology. We learn intriguing geologic trivia: the original caldera that formed Lake Toba in North Sumatra ejected 2,800 cubic km when it erupted 74,000 years ago, forming a 1,350 square km depression 100 km long and 30 km wide, the largest on earth, and that the 85 volcanoes in the remote Outer Islands are scattered over distances of 1,500 km in an east-west direction and 1,000 km in a north-south direction. Conspicuously absent from the book are the colossal mountains of Papua as they are primarily non-volcanic. A few myths are dispelled: the widely held view that Krakatoa’s crater exploded because of the contact of inrushing seawater with the volcano’s exposed molten magma. Also the surprising fact that partially submerged volcanoes are actually some of Indonesia’s highest. Though the peak of Gunung Api (north of Wetar) is only 282-metre above the ocean, this monster actually reaches down 5,000 meters to the bed of the Banda Sea, making it the highest volcano in Indonesia! Volcanoes of Indonesia is first and foremost a comprehensive photo essay. Photographer Carl-Bernd Kaehlig, who has lived in Indonesia for more than 25 years, discovered his interest in outdoor photography while backpacking through Southeast Asia in 1977. Starting with the endpapers and title page, a huge variety of dramatic and quintessential volcanic landscapes are presented that capture the serenity and latent power of brooding peaks rising majestically out of the early morning mist, dark silhouettes against blood-red sunsets, eerie hissing clouds venting inside vast calderas, doomsday moonscapes encrusted with bright yellow sulfur, sunrays piercing blankets of fog, tortured rock formations scarred by centuries of erosion, isolated flowering plants sheltering in niches, sacred high mountain temples and ancient rock-hewn bathing sites. Kaehlig has taken the effort to be at the right place at the right time - usually the first two hours after sunrise.

Hacked or spoofed email accounts Has my email been hacked?

C/CI/G - 23 Jan. 13

This actually happened to me recently. I received an email from a friend. He was replying to an email from me that contained just a single link. Unfortunately, I didn’t send that email to him. Also, note that no other friends received an email like this that seemed to be from me. The first thing I did was look at my ‘sent’ folder. Of course I didn’t see this email in there so I knew that I did not send it and that my email account was ok. Turns out HIS email account had been hacked with a virus that sent emails to people in his address book from other people in this address book. Since, like most of us, his email was in his address book, he received the email also. I advised him to change his password and ‘secret’ question immediately. Maybe it has happened to you (I hope not). Have some friends contacted you and complained YOU are sending them lots of email about Viagra or discount insurance or some other topic they are not interested in? Or you try to log into your email account and, all of sudden, the password you always use doesn’t work? Let’s just say there is much confusion about what many think as having their email account ‘hacked’. A ‘Hacked’ account

• Sales • Service • Parts •

When I hear that term ‘hacked’, in that context, I imagine an email account that has been taken over by a third-party and the rightful owner has been locked out of it. If a ‘hacker’ wants to gain access to your email account, it’s for nasty purposes and if they don’t lock you out, you can easily lock them out once you realize something funny is going on (being locked out is standard operating procedure in ‘hacking’ an account). If you have been locked out, you can’t shut down the account until you regain control of it and depending upon which email service you are using, doing so can be fairly easy to near impossible.

+62 8311 819 816 • +62 818 548 095 +62 361 743 7138 C/CI/I-17 Oct 12

If you are part of a corporate mail system or a national Internet Service Provider, contact the tech support departments to work through the process of regaining control of the account. If you are using a freemail system like Yahoo! Mail and Gmail, when you originally setup the account they required you to designate a ‘primary’ email address (usually on another system) in case you forget or need to reset your password. If you can’t use this method to regain access, then the ‘hacker’ has already changed the primary email address (the one that allows you to reset) to something they control, so you’ll need to report it to the email service provider. If you still have access to the account but think someone else may have the password and is using the account to send unauthorized messages, you need only to look in the ‘Sent’ folder to see if any messages that were sent aren’t familiar. If you see anything along those lines, make sure to change the password immediately so they can’t continue to access the account. ‘Spoofing’ an account A more common scenario that causes many to proclaim that their email address has been ‘hacked’ is actually the simple tactic of ‘spoofing’ the return address on messages. It’s the same lack of control with standard postal service mail; anyone can jot down any address as the ‘sender’ without any way to verify if it’s true and drop the mail into any mailbox. Email spoofing is a common tactic with spammers because you are more likely to open a message from an email account that you recognize.

C/CI/G-19 Sept. 12

Most Internet Service Providers and spam detection systems employ a process that tries to validate the senders address via the ‘header‘, which is tucked inside of every message, but it’s pretty easy to fool these filters into thinking the message is OK. If you think about it, you get email every day that has a spoofed sender’s address (most phishing scams and spam use spoofed ‘From:’ addresses). Even if you switch to another email address, it’s just a matter of time before the new address starts getting used in spoofing scams, so I wouldn’t get too carried away with switching email accounts if this is what is happening to you. Understanding the difference between having your email account compromised and having it spoofed is critical. If, in fact, your email account has been compromised (even for short period of time) your identity may be at risk. Any email account that is used in conjunction with an online banking account is the gateway to your personal identity (think about where the reset instructions are sent when you tell your online bank that your forgot your password); if you suspect someone has gained access to an account that you use for banking purposes, be sure to also change the passcodes and review your ‘challenge’ questions to play it safe! In summary, when in doubt, immediately change you emails password and ‘challenge’ question. Then do the same for any banking or investment accounts you may have. In particular, check the alternate email address you gave them and make sure it is your account. May you all have safe internet experiences! ============================================================================================ Have a question or problem?

Organic Lawn Fertiliser

‘Dear Dr Kris, I enjoy reading your BA column. As I’m very environmentally-minded (sometimes tough for me living in Indonesia), I was wondering what you recommend as far as organic fertilizer, especially for the lawn. I don’t want my kids playing on a lawn that has toxic fertilizer, nor do I want to expose the water table below my house with toxic substances. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance. Marc F, Canggu’ A nice lawn is always relaxing and peaceful for the mind and eyes, but lawns also provide signi¿cant environmental benefits providing oxygen, cooling the micro-climate, trapping dust and preventing erosion. On the downside a lawn heavily fertilised with chemicals will contribute to pollution in water tables, lake and river systems through contaminated run-off, creating algal blooms, ‘dead zones’ of aquatic life and also harmful effects to humans. Long term use will disturb the microbe balance in the soil which in turn affects your lawn. Excessive amounts of energy are also used in order to create them. The average lawn can receive more than ten times the chemical pesticide and fertiliser per square metre than farmland, sometimes more! Synthetic fertilizers are usually used in conjunction with chemical fungicides, pesticides, and herbicides, which also bring along their own harmful side effects and they will generally cost more than a simple organic lawn care program. In some cases asthma and many other ailments to numerous to list have been attributed to chemical lawn care products. Your point about concern for your kids playing on a toxic lawn is reason enough to avoid these products! Organic Lawn Fertilisers Seaweed - This is under utilised in the gardening world. Its bene¿ts are so extensive that it should be given top priority as part of any fertiliser programme. The seaweed stimulates the soil bacteria which will help to release nutrient content already stored within the soil, currently unused. Common kelp, seaweed or sea grass found washed up at the beach is adequate for use. You can often ¿nd large amounts washed up after high seas or stormy weather. The best hunting spots are Nusa Dua Canggu and Sanur where there seems to be a regular supply. I am not advocating harvesting live seaweed from rock platforms or reefs, just take the stuff that has been deposited at the beach by nature. Seaweed should always be washed before use to remove excess salt. If still fresh, you could let it dry out over a few days, and crush it up once it is brittle and sprinkle over the lawn. You can also make ‘seaweed tea’. Chop up a small bag of seaweed and add it to a garbage bin full of water. Let it sit for 2-3 weeks loosely covered in a sunny spot. The resulting ‘seaweed tea’ can be used diluted, one cup to a full watering can, and is my preferred personal choice as a natural liquid fertilizer. Seaweed or kelp supplies a complete range of trace minerals and natural hormones that increase resistance to pests, disease and other stresses, and also serve as a food source for soil microbes. Feeding your lawn with liquid seaweed is one of the best things you can do for it. Seaweed is loaded with trace elements like iron, magnesium and zinc which support plant health and root development, and help ¿ght off fungal diseases, and even better seaweed free! Monthly applications are recommended. Seaweed fertiliser will also improve soil quality over a number of years. This is because the alginates contained within it, break down heavy soils into a crumbly free draining material, and they will also bene¿t sandy soils rendering them more fertile and improving their water holding capacity. To add to the list of bene¿ts, seaweed is also valuable in helping to break down organic matter. This is a particular bene¿t for lawns where thatch can become a serious problem if not

managed properly. If you have a ¿sh tank, or a pond at home, whenever you do a water change make sure to pour this nutrient rich water onto the lawn, it contains all sorts of material such as ¿sh droppings, dead plant material, algae and other micro organisms. Grass clippings - Organic matter will always bene¿t the soil, grass clippings especially. You already have a lawn so simply recycle what you would normally throw out. It lightens clay soil and it builds humus in sandy soils, which helps retain water and nutrients. Grass clippings are approximately 90% water content, so they begin to decompose almost immediately, and they return nutrients especially nitrogen to the soil. When soaked in water they produce a fast release nitrogen rich fertiliser that can be applied to the garden. Prepare it by ¿lling a bin half full with grass clippings then top it up with water and cover with a tight ¿tting lid. Place it in a sunny location for a few weeks. Dilute by pouring one cup of the ready mixture into a full watering can. Dried leaves compost or other garden waste such as weeds may be used instead of grass clippings. Experiment with amounts or combine with seaweed for a more complete fertiliser. If using weeds make sure they have been pulled fresh, de¿nitely not treated with chemical pesticide. Put the weeds in a tied plastic bag and leave them out in a hot place in the sun for a few days, the weeds will be get cooked (‘solarised’) meaning they won’t be able to re-germinate amongst the lawn. Compost - This will naturally provide the nutrients your lawn needs to grow and stay healthy, and you can easily make your own from kitchen and yard waste. If you have compost simply sprinkle it around the lawn every few weeks before watering. Alternatively compost tea can be used, which is made in a similar way to the seaweed liquid. Simply put one shovel load of compost into a bucket or bin, add water put a lid on top and leave it in the sun for a week or two, then water the tea across the lawn.

Coffee grounds or tea leaves - The high content of nitrogen in coffee grounds and tea leaves means that they are ideal for use as a lawn fertiliser. Collect a bucket full, and dilute with water for a liquid fertiliser that you can transfer to the watering can for application across your lawn. You can also use a fork to aerate parts of your lawn and sprinkle coffee grounds and tea leaves across the area to incorporate them into the soil, for a slow-release of nitrogen. Coffee grounds will also deter snails and slugs as well. All these techniques will have the added benefits of encouraging earthworms to move in, and they make the best soil which will help your plants via natural aeration, and their nutrient rich droppings. The biggest bene¿ts of organic lawn fertiliser, is that it is safe for the environment, your children and pets, whilst also providing a slow release of nutrients that will feed the soil microbes leaving you with a beautiful lawn.

Diesel Fuel Tank Cleaning Service No Tank to Big, No Tank to Small Clean Fuel Will

“Seeking the Holy Quail”

So how do you find a contractor? You could ask the pembantu but it is well to remember that when we request something the request may have a good chance of passing through a number of intermediaries before finally reaching the person that will actually provide the service. I want to buy a motorbike, a blue Honda. I ask the pembantu Wayan who says she can help. She talks to her brother in law Made who has a friend Ketut who knows a bloke from Banyuwangi called Joko (or is it Joker?) who sends an sms to his father’s sister’s cousin twice removed in Jember, a man called Doji. Eventually we hear of success. Of course Wayan doesn’t deal directly with Doji, the transaction comes all the way back up the line with a little bit of lubrication at each step of the way. Such an arrangement has a healthy dose of Chinese whispers and I am eventually offered a pink sewing machine made by the Hu Flung Dung company of Shanghai. Not a good way of finding the person who is going to take your hard earned life savings in exchange for some erratically placed pieces of bricks and mortar. A more sensible approach is to ask around and find someone who has had a successful experience with a contractor (and by successful experience I am talking about construction here not drinking tuak or discussing the finer details of blowing smoke rings down your left nostril). Be careful who you talk to because as soon as there is a vested interest involved or the smell of a handsome commission you cannot be sure what you will get. Also don’t be fooled into thinking that a foreigner will be more reliable than an Indonesian, all too often the reverse is the case. In the past few months I have had to deal with several contractors involved in serious building projects who, as things progressed, displayed a suspicious absence of knowledge of the building process. Further enquiries revealed that, while the contracts are made with them and payments are made to them, rather than contractors to all intents and purposes many of these people are merely ’brokers’ who, in fact, do very little but will take 10% or more of the total project cost for their brokerage expertise. In these situations there is a major difficulty in that the ‘contractor’ becomes a barrier putting a distance between the client and the subcontractor who is actually carrying out the work. This results in all sorts of strange goings on that can drive you as nutty as schizophrenic monkey. In these situations you may find that timescales are not met, contract documents are not even understood never mind adhered to and standards tend to be what the actual builder is used to delivering which can be poor at best and downright dangerous at worst. Worst of all is the helplessness and the inability to manage the situation or to take steps to sort out the problems that arise. A typical problem in such situations is the payment of workers. Most ‘contractors’ will win a building job and find a mandor (a foreman) who will head off to Java to find a team of highly skilled building professionals who are having a quiet spell in their enterprising business of syphoning gas from green cylinders to blue ones. So you make an agreement with the contractor regarding how much it will cost to do the work. The contractor makes an agreement with the mandor regarding the cost per man per day and the mandor then negotiates with the gas syphoners. The gas syphoners will come from some poor, far off quarter of Indonesia and will often camp on the work site. They start work. They work well at first but then there start to be problems. You can’t quite get to the bottom of what is going on but suddenly you find the site quiet, the men have gone. Soon a new crew turn up. You note that one of them looks about 12 years old and you cringe as he swings a pickaxe from somewhere high above his head to hit the hard ground about a cat’s whisker away from his big toe. He is wearing his Indonesian standard safety flip flops of course. A couple of weeks later this lot have gone and a new lot turn up. Instead of 15 men working on the site we are now down to 3 men and a rather mangy looking dog. The project slows to a crawl and as time passes you start to get frustrated, frustration slowly turns to anger (which, when displayed, has absolutely no effect) and eventually despair starts to set in.

C/BM/G-20 Feb. 13

This is a surprisingly common scenario. No wonder you couldn’t get anything done. You are talking to the ‘contractor’ who in fact has no direct control over the men and is totally reliant on the mandor. The mandor is on his own poverty avoiding agenda and has as much empathy for his workers as ebola virus.

C/BM/I-28 Nov 12

In such an arrangement you will note that there is very little in the way of technical knowledge or skills. You have assumed that the contractor is a professional in the building industry when in fact he isn’t. He doesn’t employ an engineer or an MEP expert and building standards are left to whatever the mandor and his street corner recruited labourers may have picked up along the way.

If You Have a Problem with.....

Of course this scenario is not always the case and recently I came across a mandor who was exceptionally good. He was a strong leader and a good manager who, in spite of probably having no education, really knows his trade. Even more surprising was his understanding of such things as concrete mixtures and testing, his ability to read drawings and do the maths required to put the drawings into reality and, the most rare talent of all, his ability to plan ahead and ensure the project keeps moving. An easy to recognise feature of such a person is the loyalty and respect that his workers show him. BALI : (62 361) 360 0143, 361 780 9219  (62 361) 725 137 SURABAYA : (62 31) 841 6191 (hunting)  (62 31) 842 0602

Sadly such people are few and far between and lead us to one of the harsh realities of working in Indonesia which is that there is often a huge gulf in understanding between people who have technical qualifications and the people on the ground actually doing the work. This is an important point to understand. With no system of apprenticeships in place tradesman do not learn the basic theory they need to support their practical skills and technical graduates often have serious shortcomings in the practical application of building theory. It is disturbing to know how often this is the case even with ‘contractors’ who are supposed to be respected and carry out reasonably sized jobs.

So what can you do to avoid such situations? • Check the contractor out, ask him questions that will reveal his technical knowledge. • Make sure some professionals are involved in the project particularly an engineer. • Make sure you have a fluent Indonesian speaker on your side who will find out what is going on within the team as the project progresses and look after your interests (not easy and don’t expect your driver to be up to the job) • Make sure the project has the three key sets of documents that tie the outcomes together. A bill of quantities that lists the tasks with their associated costs, the drawings that define the building and the project time schedule which lists the tasks and when they should be completed. • Set milestones and tie your payments to the milestones. When the foundations are complete so much will be paid, when the walls are built so much is paid, etc. • Monitor closely the time schedule and the quality of work so that if problems start to emerge you can identify them quickly at an early stage and nip them in the bud. Don’t let things slide. • Monitor the men and check to see if they are being paid properly. If the men don’t get paid don’t pay the contractor until the men have been paid. • If you identify good workers get their contact details, if things fall apart you may be able to employ them directly cutting out the contractor or the mandor. • Most important make sure that your contract has a ‘get out’ clause that allows you to terminate your contractor for lack of performance or even imposes financial penalties if work is not completed on time.

It is important to note that while there are many very good contractors who know what they are doing it is an inescapable fact that there are many others who learned their contracting skills squatting on street corners stroking their cocks.

Oil does NOT wear out. Go Green, Keep it Clean!


Whether it is to find someone to build you a house or to find someone to dispose of the person who sort of built your house is your business but in this place things are seldom what they first appear. Contractors are prone to behave in ways that people not from around these parts may find a tad difficult to understand.

If you have your wits about you before the anger and despair set in you might start asking questions and you may find that the contractor agreed a low but still almost reasonable pay for the men. The mandor on the other hand is paying the men peanuts and pocketing lots for himself. The men actually doing the work are not committed from the start because of the pittance they are being paid. They eventually walk off the job because they haven’t been paid for the last 2 months.

Unfortunately these steps can also have a negative reaction. You may find that if the contractor can’t take advantage and make some easy money out of you he may simply walk away to find someone more gullible than you are. Whatever happens don’t let the despair disempower you, there are good people around and the trick is to find them. There is nothing like word of mouth and seeking out people who other people you know well can recommend.

Say What? C/Bm/I-03 April 13

Question: I am Indonesian woman who has been dating a Western man for about 6 months. We spend a lot of time together at my house with my mother and family, and I enjoy cooking for him and spending time with him. Recently, he left to go to his home country on holiday, and I wanted to go with him but he didn’t take me. I kept hinting around about it before he left, but he didn’t pay attention to me. I think he knew I was angry because I didn’t see him or talk to him for a week before he left. Now he is back, and he is acting as if nothing changed. I am still angry, but I think that I should give him another chance. If he doesn’t take me with him to meet his family the next time he goes home, then we are breaking up. What do you think? Dr. ZZ: It is impossible to sit as judge and jury of a relationship on the basis of a few sentences in an email. Besides, there are several questions I would want to ask about the relationship, questions which you too may do well to ask yourself. First of all, when you say you spend a lot of time with him at your house, I wonder if the two of you also go out on dates or hang around with each other’s friends. If not, I would find the situation one-sided, and I would question his intentions. Secondly, it is unclear why you were hinting around about going with him instead of just coming out and asking him about it directly. My instinct tells me that you probably feared being rejected, and you knew he wouldn’t take along you even if you asked. The other question that seems obvious to me is why you didn’t talk to him honestly about any of this when he returned. I also do not understand your sense of urgency or entitlement. If you have been seeing this man for only about six months, it seems premature that you would be so intent on returning to his home country and meeting his parents at this early stage of the involvement. My hunch is that the unspoken truth about this relationship is that it isn’t everything you’re making it out to be, and you want to travel with him and meet his family as a means of substantiating your connection. Chances are he is not interested in that because he may not take the relationship as seriously as you do. Rather than make ultimatums at this point, it seems to me as if you need to have a serious conversation with him about the relationship itself in order to find out whether the two of you are on the same page. There may also be issues with his family at home that have nothing to do with you; so it may be wise not to pin the future of your involvement on the sole requirement that you meet his family -- especially at this early stage in the dynamic. The

most conspicuously obvious missing piece here appears to be your lack of communication. That is something the two of you can address and work on without anyone having to go anywhere. Question: I am 47 years old, divorced, and the mother of three teenage children. For 12 years, I was in an abusive relationship and finally got the courage to leave my husband. Our divorce has been final for about two years, but some days I wonder if I made the right decision. Not that I liked the abuse, but the dating scene is so much different now than it was when I was younger.

Recently, I met a great man, but I don’t love him. He wants to get married, and I don’t know what to do. He makes sure that my kids and I want for nothing, but I don’t feel emotionally connected to him. I appreciate everything he does for us, but I feel guilty because I think I’m taking advantage of him. On the other hand, dating is even more depressing. I don’t have the energy to sift through all the characters out there playing games. My kids will be old enough soon to leave home, and I don’t want to be left alone. Should I settle and marry this man even though I know he’s not the “love of my life,” or should I hold out? Dr. ZZ: It is almost always impossible in relationships to get everything on your checklist. No one but you can determine what you can and can’t deal with. In this situation, you may want to consider taking it slowly and focusing on getting to know this man better. You don’t say how long the two of you have been dating; perhaps you are still processing a wealth of emotions from your marriage. The most important reminder for you is not to rush into another commitment. If this man truly loves you and has your best interest at heart, he will understand. If you feel as if you may be taking advantage of him by accepting gifts and such, then ask him to hold back a bit in his generosity. One of the most common problems in relationships is a lack of communication; you also seem to display a fair amount of internal conflict. If you are thinking to make this man your life partner, you need to be able to talk to him honestly about your feelings. Just as you deserve to find the “love of your life,” he deserves the same. Level with him, express yourself, and be honest.

Living In Abject Poverty (part one) Forgotten by time and progress By Skye Laphroaig

“It was far more dire than I could imagine and visualise. I just realised that I had never seen anything so bad in my whole life” ~ David Booth MBE

road followed by dirt road about 3 km. Further up the slopes, are paths and narrow dirt tracks, accessible on foot or by sturdy motorcycle resulting in isolation and lack of development.

The year is 1998 and all is not well on the Island of the Gods. Well off the beaten track, just three hours away from Bali’s holiday hotspots, pockets of tiny villages and hamlets exist, that most people never see. The conditions here are far from a tropical paradise. High on a rugged landscape, between the holy mountain of Agung and the mountain of Abang lives a group of people who are completely isolated from the rest of the island. These people live their lives in abject poverty.

“Before the asphalt road was built, our Suzuki Jimny went extra fast to get up the hills”, recalls David. “We had to stop and leave the car behind, and follow the winding, dry, river bed track for 8km by bike, memorizing where we turned”.

During this two part series, we travel back in time, following the remarkable story of a community-based project, which was born out of compassion for humanity. Over 14 years, the East Bali Poverty Project has focused its tremendous efforts on an unique group of people ‘nestled’ among East Bali’s mountain ranges. Arguably, one of Bali’s most economically deprived regions. The energetic Chairman of the East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP) David Booth founded and spearheaded the project in 1998. Working together with a talented team supported by generous donations from around the world, EBPP assists the local community on projects that build a self-sustaining, systematic solution to poverty stricken areas. By prioritizing goals – such as children’s education, public health deficiencies and food security, EBPP has managed to effect real changes that have touched the lives of every member of that community. DAVID BOOTH MBE The East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP) is a non-profit organisation established in 1998 after an appeal for help by an isolated 7,200 hectares mountain village, forgotten by time and progress. Participatory community surveys in 1998 with 1,056 of the 3,000 families in the 19 sub-villages revealed thousands of people living without water, sanitation, roads, schools, health facilities and electricity. Illiteracy was approaching 100%. Malnutrition and iodine deficiency disorders were endemic causing unhealthy childbirth, brain and body development. With education as a starting point, EBPP also runs environmental initiatives to provide sustainable livelihoods and ensure the preservation of the local environment and ecosystems. With the philosophy of “helping people to help themselves”, all programmes are designed as models that can be replicated, and executed by local people who transfer knowledge within their communities. In 2004 when David Booth was invested with an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for ‘Services to Sustainable Development in Rural East Bali, Indonesia’ he publicly dedicated his award to his co-worker and team leader, Komang Kurniawan, who has worked tirelessly with him since the project’s founding and helped him build a team to empower the Ban village community. THE SEARCH FOR BAN David Booth was born into a poor family located in the northern town of Morecambe, England in 1947. As he trained to be a Civil Engineer, David had little understanding of just how essential those skills would be to others. “I set my sights to eliminate poverty in the poorest parts of Indonesia and after four years of research, looking around, I believed it was in Bali”, recalls David. There was no indication of Desa Ban (Geban-Geban) on any map and yet thousands of people lived on the mountain slopes, cut off from communication with the outside world. One day in March 1998 David began searching for the village somewhere between Mount Agung and Mount Abang. He spent hours driving up and down asking locals “Where is Desa Ban?” And finally he came across a young man on the road to Tianyar who revealed its location. “I know Desa Ban’s location, but nobody ever goes in or goes out,” the young man said. To which David responded, “Thank you; that’s why I want to go there!” THE DISCOVERY The only access to Ban is 5km inland from Tianyar along a poorly maintained road. Only four dusuns (hamlets) are accessible by

What David Booth witnessed on the day of arrival shocked him. With the nearest hospital hours away, the child mortality rate in Ban was high, malnutrition was widespread and iodine deficiency disorders were endemic - affecting 85% of the population - being the worst in Indonesia, which is easily treatable, was rife. In the beginning the elders of the eight most isolated mountain hamlets prioritized education for their children as a means of providing a better future. But it was clear that no real progress could be made and the children could not respond properly until the basic health issues, (particularly infectious impetigo, worms and head lice) were dealt with and the steep dirt access roads improved. DATA ANALYSIS OF DESA BAN (1998) Soon after the East Bali Poverty Project pilot began, staff began educating residents about good nutrition and hygiene. Iodine deficiency and malnutrition were eliminated and fewer children were dying. Nearly everyone was illiterate and the only government school, a six-hour walk, sat derelict. Children began classes in basic agriculture studies and they were cooked a balanced meal with a glass of milk every day. Within three months hope was becoming a reality. The Project did an inductive participatory survey in Desa Ban by interviewing the heads of 1,056 of the 2,041 families in 1998. The average family income was $52 per year and population 98% subsistence farmers. Data from the 1992 Indonesian census revealed almost 3,000 families after EBPP interviewed mothers in 2001 to determine child mortality with their first UNICEF grant. WATER SUPPLY In 1998 nobody had a water supply. Some families in zone A (five hamlets accessible by the only road) had a small or simple reservoir (cubang) to collect rainwater from their roofs. When the water finished or became too polluted, they bought water from a tanker. There was a reservoir in Dusun Panek fed by a damaged pipe from Mampeh spring, high up Mount Abang in Dusun Manikaji. Zone B consisted of 14 hamlets further up the mountain, without road access or any form of transport. Only a few families had cubang, which is the main source for drinking, hygiene and farming. Most people took water from remote springs or wells up to 6 hours walk away. With no access to clean drinking water and unsanitary conditions, treatable diseases like dysentery, viral diarrhoea and other water-borne diseases were rife, and the infant death rate averaged 30% before age one and was as high as 50% in some hamlets. The number-one cause of child mortality was determined as E Coli bacteria present in all the water. EBPP gradually eliminated these deaths by educating the parents to boil water. CRETINISM AND GOITRE A Government Survey in 1998 showed 85% goitre prevalence in Desa Ban – the highest in Indonesia. The discovery of whole families left brain-damaged by their meagre diet led David Booth, to seek International Aid in 1999 from UNICEF – enabling EBPP to eventually initiate 27 posyandu - hamlet-based health clinics, providing better access to health care for the 3,500 families and a drastic decrease in child mortality over a period of 3 years. In Year 1 - intensive iodine deficiency awareness and capsules were given to women of child bearing age and children 5-12; Year 2 - Vitamin A awareness and capsules to all children and women of child bearing age and in Year 3 – initiation of the 27 health clinics. When EBPP’s expert health-advisers surveyed the most remote hamlets in 1999, they encountered dozens of people whose physical and mental development had been stunted through lack of iodine in their cassava-rich diet containing a “goitrogen” that blocks iodine absorption to the body and suppresses thyroid function, resulting in goitres and the extreme acute iodine deficiency cretinism.

COMMUNITY HEALTH At the time of the survey, there were two Puskesmas Pembantu (sub-community health centres). Each dusun should have a Posyandu (individual pre and post natal service) coordinated by the midwife, but in Desa Ban these services were not available to 90% of the families due to lack of government resources. What action villagers took when sick, depended upon where they lived and the seriousness of the sickness. Those living in Zone A usually went to the Puskesmas (community health centre) an average of 10km away. Most of those who live in Zone B stayed at home due to the far and often dangerous walk down the mountain. They relied on the local Dukun (traditional healer). Sickness presented as fever, cough, cholera, diarrhoea, skin irritation, and rheumatics. NUTRITION Most of the villagers only ate cassava or corn, occasionally with rice if they had a trip to the market. The vegetables were grown in their garden (undis, labu, kacang). They rarely ate fish or meat except at occasional religious ceremonies. Initially it was thought some of the children were much younger than they actually were because they were so acutely malnourished and there were no birth records. Health volunteers started to give them nutritious meals and fortified milk in school as part of EBPP’s integrated education programmes within the six remote hamlet schools that were launched between 1999 and 2007. The children’s bodies soon caught up within a couple of years. By the third year EBPP was working with the communities to establish the 27 “posyandu”, monthly health posts focusing on all the health needs of pregnant and lactating mothers and infants 0-5 years old. A major goal in the newly established posyandu was to ensure that every infant was given all essential vaccinations and immunisation against many easily avoided illnesses. EDUCATION Not a single adult could read or write or had seen a written word or a television. They lived in bamboo buildings maybe three by four metres and seven or eight people lived there. During the 1998 survey, education was the first on the list of requirements requested by the community. Education was nonexistent even though primary school was compulsory for all Indonesian children. There were eight primary schools in Desa Ban but only two or three primary schools were actively teaching. Teachers in remote primary schools rarely attended. Sometimes the teachers attended, but the pupils did not and vice-versa because of the distance, poor roads and the houses of the teachers too far away. PLANTING AND FARMING Almost all of Desa Ban is steeply sloping arid/semi arid land and there are no rivers or irrigation streams. The main crops in Zone A dusuns are cashew nut and mango. In the rainy season, they also planted cassava, corn; kacang-kacangan. The dusuns located on rugged mountain slopes could only grow their main crops, cassava and corn and bananas in the rainy season. In Dusun Panek, Ban, Cut-Cut, and Dlundungan people made palm sugar for personal consumption and sale in Dlundungan market, the only market in the village. In Dusun Pucang, Cegi, Pengalusan, people made bamboo baskets to sell to the visiting broker in order to get money to buy essential needs such as rice and clothes. In Pucang and Bunga many people had beehives to sell honey at the night market in Dusun Dlundungan from around midnight to 8am. People walked to market at and returned home in the morning, traversing up to 10km. 14 years after the East Bali Poverty Project was created, vast improvements have been made to the community and infrastructure of Desa Ban. Staff at EBPP now ‘lead-by-example’ and their children have grown up and become lively role models. In Part two of “Living In Abject Poverty” we discover the origins of this mountain dwelling community where nobody had even seen the Indonesian flag.

Update Ramen Boy must offer the best value Japanese meal in Bali! There are two, one on Sunset Road, Seminyak, and the other at Jln. Raya Lungsiakan, Kedewatan, Ubud. Both are situated within a Sakanaya Seafood Market [see below] and are part of the Ryoshi Group. Gyoza [pictured] is a perfect anytime snack for me. Starting life as a Chinese dumpling the Japanese have modified it, steaming first then pan-frying on one side. A mix of minced pork and vegetables they are on many menus in Bali but no one does them quite as well as Ryoshi. Ramen Boy obviously sells Ramen noodle dishes [Shoyu Ramen is my favourite, served with a pork belly confit] as well as Udon noodles. Hyashi Cuka are noodles served cold. Jajamen are warm noodles with ground beef in miso gravy. The very Japanese Katsu Curries can be chicken, pork or fish. Pork Belly Confit can also be ordered as a meal, it is with a star anise sauce.

Sakanaya is a fresh seafood market. You can buy your wet fish here to take away or order your selection of sashimi cuts and eat in [a large plate of sashimi is only Rp.50,000++, small plate Rp.30,000++, the large plate big enough to share]. Your selection of whole fish can also be steamed or grilled and not only fish but also prawns live from the tank. Oysters and clams are also available plus something quite different, a touch of Mexican with Chilli con Queso, Burritos and Tacos. Air-conditioned with off-street parking the Ramen Boy-Sakanaya makes a perfect lunch stop or for an anytime snack. Jln. Raya Sanggingan [and all its other names; Campuhan, Lungsiakan, etc] stretches from the Campuhan bridge [and Bridges restaurant] up the hill to Kedewatan. It has proved to be one of the most difficult stretches [along with Sunset Road in the south] to establish a successful restaurant. Many have come and gone [including some big name players] others just struggle along as only a handful have been succeesful. However 2013 has seen yet another batch of newbies try to buck the trend. See the new players below - all of them found along this streach of road.

Munari has the most outstanding space and a rare air-conditioned restaurant [only 4 others in Ubud] and is found where Dijon used to be. Open early for a range of set breakfasts it offers many different Asian cuisines. Samosas and Fish Curry [Madras stye] are from India. The Vietnamese Spring Rolls are cold and wrapped in rice paper but come with a very Thai sweet chilli sauce, as do the Chinese Chicken Wontons. The Laksa is ‘Singapore’ style. The remaining offerings are all local; Ayam Bumbu Rujak, Bebek Goreng Sambal Matah although the Baby Chicken braised afer marinating in red wine, served with red rice, is rather modern Indo. Trattoria Cucina Italiana started in Eat Street but is now found everywhere, and has just opened on Jln. Sanggingan. Trattoria’s popularity was fuelled by two things; excellent home made pasta and great value. Their pasta, and it comes in many varieties, is still the main reason to visit. Unlike their original mini restaurant on Jln. Laksmana, this Ubud version is large open and very spacious. As at all Trattoria’s their Tortellini Panna e Prosciutto sets the standard but the raviolis [mostly round, not the common square sachets] are always popular, well-stuffed and flavoursome. Kopi Kats opens at 8.00 every morning for a range of breakfasts. Not sure what they are copying but it must be something although their menu offers a few twisters including a Loose ‘Omlette’ featuring pan tossed eggs? It also has chicken meat, spring onions and red chilli added so it is difficult to identify its origin? Also on offer is a ‘Vietnamese’ Salad with a base of chicken or salt & pepper squid, together with shredded cabbage, carrot, ‘Spanish’ onion, coriander, mint and red wine vinegar. More international are their Chicken Schnitzel [Austrian], Steak Sandwich [very Aussie], Bangers & Mash [as English as you can get] and a Spicy Chicken from ‘Burma’ even though served with Japanese Udon noodles and boiled egg. Modern International is their Twice-cooked Pork Belly with apple and chilli, crumbled chorizo and mustard jus.

Cafe Bricks is where the one time late night bar Ozigo once reigned supreme. Offering a mix of local and International dishes, but an Aussie Burger without beetroot? Most of the standards are here; the perennial Tom Yum Goong and Pumpkin soups, Lumpia and even old friend ‘Gordon Blue’. Want a hearty snack then try their large Chicken Burger. The Thai Beef Salad strangely comes with chilli sauce, Chicken Curry is Bali style, the Oxtail Soup is served with rice to soak up all those wonderful flavours, and being in Ubud their version of Crispy Duck is on the menu. From the BBQ there is a range of meats and seafood. Mamaya styles itself as an Asian warung. Its standard Indonesian offerings are of the Chinese variety [Crab/Asparagus and Chicken/Corn soups, even Chinese fried rice and noodles and Ayam Koloke, classic sweet and sour crumbed chicken]. Seafood includes squid, prawns, crab and gurami. The Japanese selection has Chicken Katsu and a few curries but the so-called Teppan Yaki selection is in fact Teriyaki! Bridges is at the bottom of the Campuhan road and is one of its few success stories. Unlike many others Bridges actively promote their fare and are often coming up with new and novel ideas for the area. The latest is their Sunday Brunch, which started as a Mothers’ Day Special but proved so popular that it is now a regular feature, every week. The Brunch is a true combination of breakfast and lunch. Begin with sweet breads [banana, strawberry and basil or cinnamon and raisin] or hot just baked English Muffins, five grain bread or French Brioche. Eggs and which way plus your choice of maple-glazed bacon, fillet of salmon, baked Italian sausage, marinated chicken strips, vegetable kebabs, rice or noodles. For an extra fee add Foie Gras. Add a pear & prosciutto or potato salad if you wish. More hot dishes include baked asparagus, roasted mushrooms, mushroom and bacon ravioli, hash browns and even sautéed octopus. As it is lunch, as well as breakfast, finish with dessert; apple tamarillo crumble or white chocolate blueberry cake. The action begins every Sunday at 10.00 a.m., continuing to 3.00 p.m., with live classical music in the background. It is a classy way to spend your Sunday.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

Tasty Food and a View to Match! Warung Kayu Api is something different for Sanur. Perched, as you are, above the Sanur golf course, the smell of fresh cut grass pervades, together with distant shouts in the wind of exhilaration or disappointment as a result of the passing golfers’ shot making ability. Subtle netting prevents any stray golf balls finishing on your plate.

and imported from New Zealand, a USA Sirloin and a N.Z. Ribeye. The Surf & Turf combines tenderloin with grilled king prawns. The Jumbo Seafood Platter [for two persons] contains just about everything possible and is incredible value.


: Warung Kayu Api

The Giant Skewers are popular at Kayu Api for the very hungry. Tandoori Prawns with pilaf rice, Moroccan Tuna with couscous, Chicken Wings [pictured] with corn on the cob and Lamb & Beef Kofta served with couscous. The Ayam Kare Api Giant Skewer is very special. Thigh meat from the chicken [more flavour than breast and just as tender when cooked slowly] is used and marinated in an Indonesian spice mix or turmeric, garlic, galangal an coconut milk. That marinade is also used as the base for the accompanying sauce.


: Jln. The Bypass Ngurah Rai 95,

A relaxing lunch venue with that almost constant sea breeze wafting across negating any requirement for air-conditioning although there is such a closed-off room at the far end of the restaurant for meetings and private dinners.

Smoking Area

: Yes

Rack of Lamb, from New Zealand is served herb-crusted and the full sized serves of Pork Spare Ribs [500gm] are both favourites with International meat lovers.


: Secure, off-road in front.


: Rp. 350,000 for two [+ drinks]

When a restaurant is opened by industry professionals it acquires a special feel about it, one that is both relaxed and quietly business-like. It is a case of having done it all before as certainly Margit Arnold and her Balinese husband Ida Bagus Rai have in their combined 30 years plus in Bali and overseas.

Dinner time and many other interesting dishes [both Balinese and International] are added to the menu. An entree of Pan-seared Scallops is served in orange, basil and anchovy sauce, with a puree of edamame. Salmon Tartare, 3 small round patties, topped with mini slices of avocado, a puree on the side, served on crisp discs.

Credit Cards

: Visa, Mastercard.


: International.


: Moderately priced list.


: With smile.

Downstairs is the popular Balinese restaurant Surya, specialising in Babi Guling and the Betutu’s of Ayam and Bebek, and dishes from this menu are also available upstairs. One ‘cross-over’ dish is a wow! With the awful name of Bali Wrapped Up, babi guling flesh is combined with chilli jam and Balinese sambal in a soft flour tortilla wrap, a dish that I can not stop ordering on my lunchtime visits.

The Salmon Steak is simply grilled and served with a caper sauce. Salmon ‘Fish n Chips’ is very different, fingers of salmon with sauce tartar.


: Overlooking golf course.


: Relaxed, great value.

An interesting soup is their Ares Ayam. Full of tender chicken slices it has been combined with sliced banana trunk and chicken dumplings. Likewise an entrée portion of Lawar is also available, that Balinese vegetable salad with pork or chicken meat added. Ceviche is a more International entrée, diced fish marinated in lime juice, mixed with vegetables and jalapenos and served with corn chips. Traditional sandwiches are on the all day menu [grilled ham & cheese, club, etc] as well as my favourite babi guling wrap. Pizzas are prepared in the kitchen ovens and include the standards [Margharita, Quattro Stagioni and Meat Lovers], available Pastas include Spaghetti [Aglio, Olio and Peperoncino], Fettuccine [with prawns, bacon, tomato, chilli, olive and garlic], Penne [with home cured salmon, asparagus, cream and herbs] and a special Fettuccine Betutu, combining that pasta with chicken betutu meat, diced capsicum and chilli. Both the Ayam and Bebek Betutu are available from downstairs and can be ordered in quarter, half or whole bird sized portions, all of which come as set meals with all the trimmings.

Chicken Breast ‘Neptune’ [pictured] is a cross-sliced roll of tender moist chicken meat that has been stuffed with a prawn and vegetable mix, the sauce on the side a perfect match, excellent! Beef Fillet is served stroganoff style and the Prawns are in sauce kuning [turmeric] I could just keep on eating these prawns, plump and tender. The same prawn dish is also featured as one of the side dishes in Kayu Api’s impressive evening Balinese Bojana spread [specially prepared for two or more persons] The Chicken Bojana starts with the classic Ares Calon Ayam soup, then follows an amazing spread; breast from the betutu and another that has been stewed in different spices, those prawns in turmeric, both sate lilit and sate ayam, a moist and tasty tum ayam [chicken minced with spices wrapped in leaf and deep-fried], and many vegetable combinations, Bali style. A duck version of the Bojana is also available. It is an amazing array of Balinese cuisine tastes, with full on flavour and definitely not a weak tourist version.

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at Directions: Put the rice in a strainer and run under cold water, washing the rice until the water runs clear. Drain and set aside. Heat the vegetable stock in a pot until hot. Set aside with the lid on to retain the heat. In a frying pan melt half the butter until bubbling. Lower the heat and add the chopped onion. Cook, stirring, until the onion softens and is beginning to turn golden. Add the chili and stir fry for one minute. Add the pumpkin and stir fry for another 5 minuets or until it starts to soften. Now add the drained rice and stir well until the rice is well coated.

I ran out of my much coveted Italian Arborio rice for risotto, brought by a friend some time ago. I’d doled it out carefully over the last two years so I thought, “Let’s try plain old Bali rice and see what happens.” It turned out to be a good substitute and while not one hundred percent authentic, still delicious and way more economical than the same Italian import here.

Pumpkin Risotto with Sage and Chili Serves 4-6

Have the heated stock near you and ladle one or two ladles full into the pot. Stir until the liquid is absorbed by the rice. Add a couple more ladles full of stock and again stir until the liquid is absorbed. Continue in this manner until all the stock is used and the rice is creamy but not completely broken down into porridge. This will take about 30 minutes. Now add the salt, pepper, chopped sage leaves, remaining butter, and grated parmesan cheese and stir so everything is well mixed. Remove the pot from the heat, cover it, and set aside 5-10 minutes. Risotto should be eaten immediately, although heated left overs the next day aren’t bad at all! Buon Appitito!

How is it working in a male-dominated culture and environment? I like working with men on site, not in the office. Working in male – and expat-dominated businesses keeps me tough, independent, well informed about my field, flexible in difficult work situations and ready for any crisis that might suddenly arise. Are women engineers held to as high a standard as their male counterparts? C/G/G-31 Oct. 12

Women solve engineering problems the same way men do. Like male engineers, each woman engineer has her own specialty. For a woman engineer to be able to work on site with men, she must be capable, dedicated, enthusiastic and ready to take on any risk. She should not accept a lower salary than her male counterparts. What are the most common stereotypes associated with women working in engineering? When I first started working on the work site as an engineer, people always thought I was a secretary or interpreter for the expatriate engineers and technicians. People often believe that women are too emotional, not really smart, not motivated and not willing to work at different work sites. Is it difficult working as a woman in the engineering field?

Ira Sequin was born in Surabaya and grew up in that port city and in Jakarta. At Surabaya University, she studied marketing, accounting and engineering, earning a scholarship to further her studies at Boston University in the U.S.A. Her first job was in the accounting department in the Mobile Division of Ericsson because at the time she had not finished her university studies. Ira’s engineering specialty is steam power generation. In 2008, she won an award as The Best Manager in Environment, Health and Safety at General Electric out of a field of 250 managers in 120 countries. Since 2010, Ira has worked in the field of automation, monitoring and water treatment systems for Pascal Technologies. What kind of little girl were you? From when I was very young until my teenage years, I was a Tomboy, preferring to play with boys and preferring boyish things. I only wore shorts and a T-shirt. I was always fascinated with big machines and how they worked. I was always the only girl among my friends and wanted to prove that I could do what any boy could do like karate, rock climbing, playing rock music, hiking in the mountains and traveling alone to other islands and countries. How did you get the idea of becoming an engineer? When I was a little girl, I admired comic superheroes. When I became a teenager, scientists like Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Graham Bell, Pascal, the Wright Brothers and Albert Einstein were my heroes. I remember once seeing a group of American oil company engineers, and I really wanted to be like them.

Actually, a woman working in the engineering profession in a remote area is hard. You have to be ready to travel at any time and often stay for a long time far from friends and family where there are no amusements, restaurants and shopping malls - nothing. It is especially difficult for a woman who is married and has kids. I was once offered a job in a nuclear power plant in France but didn’t take it because my husband and I planned to have children. What engineering job do you dream of working on?

I would love to come up with a useful innovation or technology that other people haven’t invented yet. For example, I’d like to make a tool to help women protect themselves from criminals. I’d like to be the first in my company, country or even in the world to invent something. I’d like to become more involved in developing an important theory. For me, that’s real engineering. Can you give any examples of famous women engineers? Barbara Johnson, a NASA aeronautical engineer who was partly responsible for the moon landing; Bonnie Dunbar, a NASA ceramic engineer who developed tiles to protect space capsules; Judith Resnik, a NASA astronaut; Beatrice Hicks, who developed sensing devices, the first woman engineer hired by Western Electric; Ellen Richards who is known as the “Mother of Environmental Engineering;” Mary Walton, a British technologist in the late 1800’s who developed methods to detect smoke emissions and reduce train noise; Margaret Engels, the first woman to earn a master’s degree in mechanical engineering; Katherine Stinson, the first female engineer to work for the Civil Aeronautics Administration, named the Aviation Pioneer of the Year in 1987.

Jl. TEUKU UMAR 65 D (Simpang 6) DENPASAR Tel: (0361) 221663 Email : C/G/I-29 May 13

Dengue fever alert: The incidences of infection on Bali by this dreadful virus are expected to peak this month and June: 2,079 cases have been reported by the end of April, the largest number in densely populated Denpasar (685 cases), followed by Badung (412 cases), Tabanan (179 cases) and Bangli (10 cases). This is the time, particularly if you live in Denpasar, to use an effective mosquito repellant such as non-DEET Autan, readily available on Bali in 30 ml. and 80 ml sachets. Eradicate all potential breeding sites places within at least 20 meters of your house where female mosquito larvae reproduce by laying eggs in standing water: ditches, tire ruts, trash cans, open rain barrels, gutters, flower pots, buckets, refuse, pet dishes, artificial ponds and pools by filling the receptacles with dirt, covering them, turning them over or emptying them out. Put mosquito larvae-eating fish like minnows, small goldfish, catfish, killi fish and guppies into stagnant water after hooking up an electric aerator. Tadpoles also eat mosquito larvae and they grow up to become frogs and toads, which also eat mosquitoes. Change water frequently in birdbaths. Agitate water in pools with fi lters, fountains, waterfalls or running water. Run your swimming pool pump every day and keep the water chlorinated. Pour 100% water-soluble Abate powder into still water, an effective chemical that eradicates the organic matter, the host bed for mosquito larvae. Buy Abate for Rp80,000 per box of 50 sachet (small packet) of powder, each sachet 10 gram at Brataco Chemika, Jl. Kepundung 8, Denpasar, tel. 0361-780-1787 (call for directions). A more eco-friendly solution is to spray neem on standing water to kill larvae. Eco Shop (Jl. Dewi Sita, Ubud) sells natural, nonchemical sprays and lotions, as well as antimosquito incense (dupa). Restaurant of the Month: Warung Bunana, with branches in Denpasar, Jimbaran and Sanur, offers budget, authentic, tasty Indian-Malaysian food and drinks including yoghurt lassi and frothy teh tarik, Malaysian-style hot or cold cinnamon tea. Don’t expect too much from the decor as the small chain caters to locals but the food more than makes up for the basic interior. Indian-style martabak, more than 29 kinds of savory roti canai (plain canai bread), roti sosis (chicken or beef sausage bread) for just Rp10,000. Varieties of thin crispy rectangular shaped sweet/desert paratha bread (Rp6,000) comes in cheese, sarikaya, chocolate banana, chocolate cinnamon or custard apple flavors. The perfect roti canai comes with a curry sauce to dip it in (Rp10,000). Watch them flip and roll the roti before it is cooked. Main dishes include surprisingly good chicken, mutton and vegetable curries (Rp20,000). Very good value and friendly staff, though sometimes the service can be slow because all food is cooked to order. Three locations: 1) Sanur at the junction of Jl. Danau Poso and the Bypass (around 200 meters west of the Kopi Bali House); 2) Jl. Uluwatu II (200 meters from Jenggala Keramik). 3) Jl. Raya Kerobokan, a small warung with six tables (look for big blue sign ROTI CANAI & TEH TARIK). Open from 12 am to midnight, except the Sanur branch is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Build your own basketball court for under Rp3 million: Two men’s labor for 3 days will cost around Rp450,000. The bent frame of the pole is first constructed of wire and rebar which is then stuck deep into the ground to a depth of threequarters of a meter. Next is to enclose the square-shaped iron frame tightly in plywood, then cement is poured in. The correct dimensions of the backboard is 1.20 m X 0.90. The top of the backboard is 2.30 m above ground. The top of the basket is 3.048 meters above the ground. For the backboard, use 3 planks cut to fit and then glued together. It’s important

to put a metal strap or iron frame completely around the border of the backboard to keep rainwater seeping in and eroding the wood. Materials needed: 10 rebar (besi) size no. 10 at Rp25,000 per equals Rp250,000; 3 bags of cement (semen) at Rp60,000 per bag equals Rp180,000; 10 cinder blocks (batako) for the base at per Rp2000 per batako equals Rp20,000; one kilo wire (kawat) at Rp20,000 per kilo equals Rp20,000; two 1 cm thick sheets of plywood (triplex) at Rp100,000 each equals Rp200,000; one-half kilo 4-cm-long nails at Rp15,000 per kilo equals Rp8,000; one pickup truck (colt) full of rocky sand (pasir cor) at Rp300,000; basketball ring (Rp250,000); bingkarai or mahoni hardwood for backboard (around Rp600,000). Send email ( for 11 photos showing the whole process from beginning to end (allow one week for receipt of the photos). Best car cushion: If you are lucky enough to find it, the old-fashioned wooden beaded car seat cover is the best possible one to use, particularly for driving long distances, reducing back and shoulder discomfort, constantly massaging muscles and allowing for maximum air circulation around your back and under buttocks. Costing around Rp150,000, the cushion fits all types of vehicle seats - car, van, taxi, truck, bus. It’s easy to install by simply tying around the underside and back of your car seat. This type of off-theshelf cushion is difficult to find. Search for it in the back aisles of small supermarkets and some older shops and minimarts. Another problem is that the cheap nylon line connecting all the dark brown and beige beads eventually breaks and the beads become undone. You can restring it or add a very strong twine through every row of beads, which is laborious but worth the effort. Dimensions length 130 cm., width 38 cm. Minitips: To stop termites (rayap), the Balinese way is to pour motor oil down cracks around window and doorframes where you find tiny wood particles or where you can actually see the small white crawling creatures. The best brand of radial car tires to buy on Bali is Dunlop (Rp1,300-000 to Rp1,500,000), followed by Radial and Bridgestone. The most durable electrical fixtures available on Bali are Clipsal; second best is Broco. The heavyduty Maspion 12 liter “Bio Tank” (330 x 185 x 380 mm), for only Rp65,000, makes a very handy clean water dispenser for those who don’t want to deal with the big Aqua water bottles that have no plastic faucet. Poci Tea Vanilla has a wonderful jasmine aroma and comes in 50 gram packages costing only Rp2000! Are you finding it difficult to source a sharp cheddar cheese in Ubud? Try “Vincent” at Pizza Bagus and “Coon Extra Tasty” at Delta. Although there are much cheaper brands on the market, the new generation Flexitemp digital thermometer (Rp89,800) is totally waterproof, has a flexible point ideal for children and the elderly and has a one year guarantee and gives readings in 8 seconds. The newsreader Freely, with free plug-ins for Firefox, Chrome and Safari browsers, is the rightful heir to the defunct Google Reader. Though it might give you a headache, reading in the dark doesn’t damage your eyes. Finally, to be contented with what one has is better than the possession of great wealth.

Toko of the Month: More earth-friendly products are packed into the little room at Ubud’s Bali Shop than in any similar sized space in Bali. Owners Darsih and Gede try to hold the line on the prices of their green products, which are usually more expensive than non-sustainable equivalents. Products: a broad selection of natural shampoo, conditioners from a n u m b e r o f B a l i ’s e c o producers; non-toxic termite treatment for bamboo and wood; stainless steel chemicalfree water bottles; wallets, purses, bags and other accessories made of recycled materials; wheatgrass powder; 5 liter containers of eco-friendly vinegar and baking soda; IDEP plant seeds; NEEM products; educational kid’s books, permaculture books and eco-publications; natural virgin coconut oil; a basket of discount items; eco-slogan t-shirts; 100% natural mosquito lotion; a 12-page publication “Cleaning Without Chemicals” (Rp50,000) filled with advice, recipes and basic products which can clean almost anything easily, effectively and naturally. Also great ideas for environmentally responsible gifts. They’re always looking for new products from small producers that either don’t want or don’t have capital for a shop of their own. Located on Jl. Dewi Sita (from Jl. Hanoman, the low-imprint shop front is 100 meters down on the left), tel. 0817-970-9094 or 0819999-47180 (Indonesian only). Open 11 am-7 pm almost every day. The cheapest pet salon to service your dog is the pet grooming shop Bahagia Pet Shop, Jl. Raya Kerobokan 14, Kerobokan, tel. 0361-843-6565, for washing, shampooing and nail clipping, ear cleaning and trimming: Rp35,000 for small dog, Rp45,000 for medium dog, Rp55,000 for big dog. Also very reasonable is Wanda Petshop, Jl. Gatot Subroto 247 Kav III, Denpasar Barat, tel. 0361–239-981. If heading for Sanur on Jl. Gatot Subroto, go past Ace and Wanda is past the first statue intersection on the right. Their personalized service is super! Have your pet washed and shampooed, nails and fur clipped, ticks pulled, etc. for only Rp40,000 for either a small or big dog. For just washing, Rp25,000 for small dog, Rp35,000 for big dog. Bali Dogs and Kintamani Dogs are not accepted because they bite when the hair dryer is used. Open 8 am-8:30 pm. The easiest way to keep ticks (kutu anjing) off is to take your dog to the vet and get a anti-parasit shot (Rp100,000) or ask for a special shampoo and spray to reduce ticks further. All vaccinations require a consultation with the vet for Rp50,000 plus for each vaccine Rp150,000. Sign up for free chat! Whereas WhatsApp can only be used to send free text messages, KakaoTalk, WeChat and LINE can be used to send voicenotes from smartphone to smartphone. It uses the Internet to send free photos, videos, animated characters, GPS location and voice mail (voice notes, like a talking sms. WeChat uses more animation while LINE uses more emoticons. WhatsAp you need a SIM card, but all the others use the Internet. School kids love this. The receiving party also has to have the same service. Download from your smartphone’s operator. For example, if you have a iPhone, use Apple Store; if you have a Samsung, use Android; if you have a Blackberry, use Blackberry Appworld; if you have Nokia, use Nokia Store.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Puppet Personalities Like in Java, Balinese puppet shows traditionally functioned as a mass moral educational tool for the masses where few people had access to a formal education. This is why the show’s characters reflect human traits seen as both desirable and undesirable in the context of Balinese Hinduism. Reflecting the Balinese concept of Rwa Bhineda, opposing traits – good and bad, refined and coarse, astute and stupid – are a necessary part of the social make up of the harmony of their society. The good characters such as Arjuna, Khrisna, Rama, Sita etc are refined and slight in appearance – they are lighter colored reflecting Aryan or God-like origins and speak in higher, softer voices than their opponents. A woman’s ideal of a Balinese man ‘Sangut’ Puppet by Wayan Kurdana, is fairer skinned with slight features and polite manners, yet like available on Arjuna it is commonly accepted for him to be a playboy type. Females are Sita-like – fair, pretty, diminutive, good at dancing and faithful to her husband or lover at all costs. Displays of emotion as seen in the giants, who are angry, aggressive creatures that may even cry on occasion as frowned upon in Balinese society – a person who reveals such emotions in public is seen as ‘out of control’. Some of the characters develop into labels in real life. One of the evil clowns, Sangut, likes to suck up to his masters and anyone advantageous. People like this in real life, who are two-faced and like to grease up to people when it suits them are also referred to as ‘Sangut’ and has even developed into a verb, ‘nyangut’. A gluttonous fellow called Cupak who is a one of two brothers in the Cupak tales, is also a common put-down for those who like to stuff their faces. While Balinese puppet shows and their stories are not as popular as they once were, many local people, particular those from the villages, still like to make references to the characters and their story based in the Mahabharata and the Ramayana epics. In fact, some of these references can be so enshrouded in allegory that many modern Balinese may not even understand what they are on about!

A Night on Broadway (1 June) For all of you who are fans of the music of Broadway, the West End and beyond this is a going to be a memorable evening! An absolute must as these sorts of evenings do not come along often, if ever in Bali. The Bali Rainbow Company presents Michael Cormick, Australia’s leading man of the musical stage, star of many famous Broadway productions including Phantom of the Opera, Joseph and his Technicolor Dream Coat, the Rocky Horror Picture Show and many more. Those musical classics that we all love to hear time and time again. Michael Cormick will also be supported by Bali’s leading Drag Divas who are always great fun to see. The evening begins with a one hour cocktail reception followed by a sumptuous four course sit down dinner by Anantara’s Executive Chef, with free flow wine, beer and soft drinks. There will also be an auction and raffle as all money raised will go towards Bali Rainbow Company’s HIV education and financial support for HIV patients in the community. With a gold ticket you are entitled to front row seating and half a bottle of champagne per person. Really, if you like musicals and a drag performance this is really worth scheduling. You are also making a difference to the people whose lives have been affected by HIV. Do make a call and book for what is for sure to be superb, top quality entertainment for an evening particularly if you are like musicals. Cost: IDR1,000,000 (silver ticket) IDR 1,500,000 (gold ticket) Where

The race categories include a full marathon, half marathon 10K run and a children’s sprint. The race will take place on flat roads and rolling hills and runners will experience the scenery and traditional art performances along the course. Registration can be made via the internet or walk in registration. Included are a running shirt and souvenirs from sponsors, a finisher medal and full marathon finishers will receive a finisher shirt. The choice of starting point is a good one as Bali Safari and Marine Park is always a worthwhile trip. If you do not want to participate in the runs, do come along and cheer the runners along.

The money raised from this luncheon will go to their chosen charity, Yayasan Bali Suara Hati, another very worthy cause. IDR50,000 from each ticket sale will be donated to this Yayasan. The location is fabulous, at Cocoon which is a perfect place to hang out for the afternoon and into the evening if you so wish.

Up In Flames Wildfires of Mount Agung By Skye Laphroaig

In September 2012, the Agency for Disaster Operations Bali (Pusdalops PB) reported that 160 hectares of forest on the slopes of Mount Agung were affected by wildfires raging out of control. It was believed that severe drought, human error and strong winds contributed to the series of forest fires. Five hot spots were detected, three of which were successfully extinguished. Due to the elevation, helicopter pilots were unable to approach the scene of the fire. The steep location of the two remaining hotspots made combating the blaze extremely difficult for fire crews to reach. As the flames spread towards several villages in the foothills, a ‘firebreak’ was cleared to stop the advancing blaze. Hundreds of volunteers and residents worked with the rescue team to try and extinguish the fires using simple equipment. The agency deployed a team consisting of personnel from Bangli search-and-rescue, paramedics from the Red Cross, the army, police and members of the Bali Disaster Response Agency. Their attempt to put out the fires faced several obstacles, as each hot spot emerged in areas with limited access. The rescue team had to climb for two hours to reach the hot spots, located in the mountains. They extinguished the fire manually with fire extinguishers and traditional tools, while attempting to prevent the fires from spreading. Some firefighters employed conventional methods of digging ditches and smothering the flames with tree branches. FIRE IN THE MOUNTAIN Mount Agung is sacred to the Balinese people, who believe it is the replica of Mount Mery, the central axis of the universe. The island’s mother temple, Pura Besakih, is located high on the mountain slopes. In addition to its religious importance, Mount Agung is also an excellent habitat for the island’s Bali Starling, an endangered species, as well as other animals and medicinal plants. The recent spate of wildfires to strike Bali’s most sacred mountain swept through more than 60 hectares of reserve forest. It is the second time they have hit the island’s most active volcano. The flames were visible from Mataram in Lombok where people initially thought Mount Agung had erupted. The firefighting team discovered the cause of the fires was not only the weather and natural conditions, but caused by some local villagers who were found burning dry leaves, thus spreading the fires in the region. Wildfires are a constant threat to Mount Agung’s forest and shrub areas during the dry season. NATURE LOVERS Karangasem Regent Wayan Geredeg was seen on-site calling for immediate support to extinguish the fires from the provincial and central governments. A helicopter was sent by the National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) to monitor the condition of the hot spots, but it was too dangerous for approach. The fires occurred at an elevation of 900 to 1,200 meters above sea level. Hundreds of volunteers, nature lovers, members of the army, paramedics and rescue teams were ready to help evacuate locals possibly trapped in the flames. Fires struck pine forests in which the height of the trees is between four to five meters. Local villagers did not contain the fires opting instead to wait for the firefighters who arrived and immediately scaled the steep terrain to reach the fires. According to Karangasem Regional Disaster Mitigation Agency (BPBD) chief Nyoman Sutirtayasa, it would be easier to ‘put out wildfires in their early stages rather than when they had spread to a wider area.’ Local residents are now being asked to play a more active role in preventing the spread of wildfires.

HOT SPOTS Indonesia ranks third, after Brazil and Zaire for its area covered by tropical forest. The area of land and forest burned in Indonesia from year to year is related to both land development policies and dry season length. Monitoring in Indonesia has indicated that the fires appear to result from “controlled’ fire used to clear forest areas and land for agricultural and forestry purposes. The distribution of burning activities is indicated by the presence of ‘hot spots’ which are monitored by detecting thermal differences (>52° C) on night time images from the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellite. When the satellite images are overlaid with land use and concession boundary maps, the major activities associated with hot spots are revealed. Caution is required in using hot spot data from satellite images to detect and evaluate fire conditions. Hot spots often do not show under heavy haze or cloud cover and may represent alternative forms of land-based heat-sources. FOREST FIRE CAUSES Forest fire causes can be grouped into two categories predisposing (creating conditions favourable for fires) and immediate (leading to ignition). Both these causes can be natural or man made; and they reinforce one another. El Nino phenomenon is a natural predisposing factor, whereas man – made factors are: wasteful logging, forest clearance for agricultural crops, estate crops and forest plantations leading to build up of combustible materials; inadequate fire protection measures; lax laws and policies or their inadequate enforcement. Starting in the late 1960’s, Indonesia’s forests were opened up for large-scale timber extraction and extensive forest areas were cleared for expanded transmigration activities, commercial and estate crops. In addition, El Niño is frequently blamed for the major forest fires. El Niño affects the global weather pattern, resulting in extreme dry conditions, which in turn predisposes the forests for tire incidence due to their parched condition. While El Niño is not a source of fire, it aggravates the fire danger situation where negligence abounds. MULTIPLE IMPACTS From September to November 1997, dense smoke from Indonesian wildfires enveloped a region covering Brunei, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand the size of Western Europe, affecting some seventy million people, directly or indirectly. 80% of the haze was produced by seven clusters of fires in and around peat forests in Sumatra and Kalimantan. The 1998 fire gutted most of East Kalimantan’s Kutai National Park and Bukit Suharto Nature Reserve. The health and safety of people who suffer from the effects of smoke and haze inhalation is most serious. The smog contains sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, and p o l y c y c l i c a r o m a t i c hydrocarbons. Damage to natural resources including soil, water, timber and wildlife takes time to recover. Fire also removes shade required for regeneration and can eliminate seed sources. The impact of forest fires reaches the world stage through a loss of the carbon sequestered in peatlands, taking millennia for nature to replace. The contribution of these fires to global climate change remains unknown.

activities include: organizing local capability and coordination to prepare for fires; f o r m u l a t i n g regulations and guidelines for land clearing without burning; developing techniques to control fire using various management approaches and operating a fire detection and early warning system. BAPEDAL, in its capacity as secretariat of the TKNPKHL established an emergency command post (POSKO) to coordinate efforts to control land and forest fires. The main activities of the POSKO are to act as the central body to collect, analyze and disseminate information about land and forest fires throughout Indonesia. National Parks under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Forestry have forest rangers that also work on fire suppression when required. Commercial activities such as forest plantations must also employ trained teams responsible for fire suppression. FIRE MANAGEMENT The debate continues as to who or what is responsible. Burning the landscape, whether for removal of refuse, or clearing land has been a way of life in Indonesia for millennia. It is usually the least expensive and in some cases the only effective means to remove vegetative matter. For many rural people, fire is used to prepare their land for subsistence crops. With shortening of fallow cycle and increasing pressure on land, the once elegant ‘slash and burn’ system has turned out to be a case of ‘land abuse’ in many cases. Surface or shallow ground fires are normally extinguished with the arrival of the Northwest monsoons and wet season. Under an extended drought the fuels become drier with each passing day, resulting in higher intensity fires with faster spread rates. Fire detection is carried out in Indonesia through surveillance by ground patrols and local community members, use of fire tower facilities, air patrolling by aircrafts and helicopters, and by enlisting co-operation of commercial airlines. A system of fully equipped fire observation towers is normally an effective means to detect and pin point the location of fire when they are fully functional. IMPROVEMENTS IN BALI The amount of attention and investment required to rehabilitate the forestland is immense. Each of the different types of forest land require different silvicultural treatments: sanitary felling, cleaning, promoting natural regeneration, enrichment planting and so on in some cases; salvage felling, land preparation, disposal of inflammable materials and replanting in some other cases. Based on the fire danger index, appropriate action can be taken to provide preventive measures including continuous surveillance of certain areas. Bali Forestry Agency data shows that as many as 22 wildfires took place throughout 2011. Bangli, Karangasem and Buleleng have been identified as the areas most vulnerable to wildfires. The fires of Mount Agung flared for five days and consumed at least 200 hectares of forest before being extinguished by a crew of firefighters and volunteers, who came from as far as Jakarta and Yogyakarta.

We Need To Talk About Lionel Shriver By Uma Anyar There is a secret fear that lurks at the edges of pregnancy and is rarely discussed. Lionel Shriver ’s novel, We Need to Talk about Kevin, turns the usual comforting platitudes about motherhood upside-down, and looks at the disparity between the great expectations of motherhood and the unspeakable apprehensions that it can bring. What if you don’t magically love your child on first sight and―to make matters worse―the baby doesn’t seem to like you much, either? And what if this unacknowledged state of acrimony continues, until one day the unthinkable occurs and seven teenagers, a beloved teacher and a cafeteria worker lie dead in a suburban school with arrows protruding from their bodies? You arrive just in time to watch policemen handcuff your son and haul him off in a squad car. What does your life become, after such an event? And as a mother, how much responsibility do you have for your children’s actions? These difficult questions are explored in Shriver’s confronting novel. We Need to Talk about Kevin won the prestigious Orange Prize in 2005. A film based on the book, directed by Lynne Ramsay and starring Tilda Swinton, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 and has won many awards. The movie is excellent in many ways, but the book is a more satisfying experience because the reader is privy to Ava’s (Kevin’s mother) thoughts and feelings. The story is told almost two years after the maleficent event, through a series of letters Ava writes to her estranged husband, Franklin. Ava is trying to understand why Kevin committed such a horrific act. In each letter, she recounts her memories of a Kevin as a child, the protracted battle of wills that started the moment Kevin was born, and her own changing feelings towards him. Was he always a monster, or were her own actions as a mother partly to blame? This is a disturbing topic because it raises the notion of ‘demon seed children’. We are familiar with these kids from films like The Omen. Bad things happen when the demon child is around, but no one can prove they had anything to do with the events. In Kevin’s case, a neighbor’s child falls off of his bicycle in traffic and Kevin’s sweet 6-year old sister Celia ‘accidently’ gets Liquid Plummer poured into her eye while home with her older brother. We Need to Talk About Kevin is a horrifying story, but there are no supernatural trappings, no gothic ghosts and no creaking doors. It is a tale of modern terror that traditional horror stories can’t touch, because it is based on far too many real life examples of school shootings in the United States. The family lives in an ultra modern house in Nyack, New York. Ava Katchadurian is the head of a travel book franchise she started called ‘A Wing and a Prayer’. She was a free spirit who, before having children, travelled widely and created a popular backpacker travel guide. Franklin is a site agent who finds scenic locations for TV commercials. They are modern, educated, well-adjusted individuals who love each other and decide to have a baby. Then, unexpectedly and inexplicably, changes occur after Kevin is born. As a baby, he refuses to nurse and cries incessantly. He is still (spitefully?) in diapers

at age 6. Kevin behaves nicely only when his father Franklin is in the room. Is this an Oedipal complex in reverse, or a brilliant divide-and-conquer strategy concocted by a cute but creepy boy? While I was reading this compelling novel I realized that the ‘demon children’ of yesterday are today referred to as psychopaths, and that they have been with us since Cain and Able. The word psychopath literally means ‘suffering souls’ and was first used in Germany in the 1880’s. Psychopaths are believed to exist in all cultures but are more prevalent in individualistic societies. It has been suggested by Cleckley (the author of The Mask of Sanity), that the winner-takes-all aspect of American culture nurtures psychopathy―a condition that has been referred to as ‘moral derangement’. Psychopaths do not have a conscience to bother them and no empathy for their victims. They are brilliant at mimicry and can act ‘normal’ when it suits their purposes. Kevin is a prime example, fooling his father with his ‘gee whiz, Dad’ approach, all the while thinking him a fool for not seeing through the guise. Lionel Shriver is a brave and talented writer who has deliberately sidestepped the American gun laws debate by presenting Kevin Katchadurian as an ace-archer rather than just another bullet-spraying Columbine-style school shooter. Her focus is on the killer himself, rather than the method. But We Need to Talk About Kevin is also about mother love, mother hate and ultimately mother guilt. The question, ‘Why did he do it?’ haunts Ava, and is the impetus for writing the heartwrenching letters that make up the chapters of this dark and powerful novel. It is this intensely frank seeking that makes Ava an interesting narrator. Many publishers initially rejected the book for being too controversial, but when Serpent’s Tail Press took a chance and published it, the book gained recognition by word of mouth. Every one was talking about Kevin. Obviously it was a topic whose time had come. Shriver has stated. ‘I owe thanks to a thoughtful, sophisticated readership hungry for challenging subject matter, for honest portrayals of parenthood, and for fiction whose meaning is neither obvious nor morally pat. This peculiar, tortured novel was an unlikely bestseller, and has benefited from numerous individual readers with independent tastes who have hand-sold it.’

Although We Need to Talk about Kevin, Shriver’s eighth novel, has made her an internationally recognized author―and Kevin a celebrity fictional character―fame has not affected her literary output. She has published four more novels since ‘Kevin’―The Post-Birthday World (2007), So Much for That (2010), and The New Republic (2012). Her latest, Big Brother: A Novel, inspired by the morbid obesity of her brother, will be published internationally June 4, 2013. Of Big Brother, she has said, ‘Almost no one has a normal relationship with food.’ Lionel Shriver was born Margaret Ann Shriver in 1957 to a deeply religious family. Her father is a Presbyterian minister. At age 15, she informally changed her name from Margaret Ann to Lionel because she felt that a conventionally male name fitted her better. Shriver has been an American expat since 1985, living in London but returns to New York every summer. Before she settled in England 14 years ago, she spent time in Nairobi, Bangkok, Tel Aviv and Belfast. Lionel Shriver will be appearing at the 2013 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival from 11-15 October. This year’s Festival theme is ‘Through Darkness to Light’, and as a writer who is certainly not afraid of the dark, Lionel Shriver will be an interesting addition to the program. I look forward to hearing more about her creative journey into the dark side of fiction when she presents in October. The next Ubud Writers and Readers Festival will be held from 11-15 October 2013.

Their South American-inspired music is catchy, their voices strong and beautiful and their Spanish pretty darn good. Few people in their audience know that these five guys created the band in their spare time and only stepped on the Café Havana stage from their real jobs – as the resto’s waiters, security, bartender and cook – when the regular Kuta-based band failed to show up. That was less than a year ago. Find La Bomba at Café Havana most nights. And if you like dancing salsa, ask one of the staff to partner you – they all dance! CHECK YOUR NEW PARTS My motorbike’s hand brake handles needed replacing – a previous owner had “modified” with trendy “aluminium” handles that had peeled in the first rain – so I asked my favorite bengkel service guy to buy new “original parts” from the Vario dealer. I guess it could happen anywhere. I was, fortunately, almost stationary on a quiet stretch of road when I squeezed the right brake handle and it snapped off in my hands. In future, I’ll be carefully checking any new part for signs of flaw or wear, before I put my most precious cargo (me) on the road again.

by Dr. Rob The Wall Painting Installation by Djunaidi Kenyut At Bloo Lagoon Village, Jl. Silayukti, Padangbai, Bali Djunaidi Kenyut is a street artist originally from Surabaya. Now resident in Ubud, Kenyut works with drawings, stencils, and painting. As a street artist, Kenyut includes text, Djunaidi Kenyut: ‘The Wall’ urban symbols, figures, and patterns in his images, as a statement about how to be a human being in the modernization of present day Indonesia. The Ubud market has become Kenyut’s personal cultural diary, where every morning he can found observing people interacting with each other. He likes to watch what the people are doing, and tries to capture exactly what they are ‘dreaming’ about. Kenyut’s exhibition ‘The Wall’, at the Bloo Lagoon Village, is a site specific project that provides him with a space for his ‘dreaming’ about human beings. The large installation piece, which covers all of the walls of the Bloo Lagoon’s gallery space, can be read as a staging of his visual ‘diaries’, depicting his ‘dreaming’ about how to be a human being in regard to an Indonesian cultural identity. Kenyut proposes that his installation could be an effective way to reveal a possible awareness about the future changes of social culture in Indonesia today. Alignment Group Exhibition of Paintings At Bidadari Art Gallery, Jl. Raya Mas 47, Gianyar Tel: +62.361.973091 In his catalogue essay for the exhibition ‘Alignment’, at the Bidadari Art Gallery, curator Richard Horstman states that the human body is a ‘vehicle’ of phenomenal, yet, often misunderstood dexterity and intelligence. He also says that its capacity for restoration and renewal often defies the so-called medical experts. Through simple, non-invasive stimulation of the senses, Horstman explains that our body’s innate abilities to regenerate, and, in essence, create ‘new life’, are easily initiated. Horstman’s exhibition ‘Alignment’ presents the work of seven contemporary artists via the mediums of sketching, painting, installation, performance and film. The artists are: Gede Made Surya Darma, Putu Wirantawan, Pras, Niccolò Italo Maria Bernasconi, Kadek Dedy Sumantra Yasa, Sanjiwani, and Ni Vonnie Dewi. What defines ‘Alignment’ from other exhibitions is its intention to communicate beyond the ‘general aesthetic experience’, and to provide insights and explanations as to how the human body and mind interact with art on deeper levels. Through the visual, audio, and energetic ‘tools’ utilized by the artists, their diverse works offer information which is decoded by the mind and the auric field, and that then arouses intelligent responses and adjustments within the body’s self-regulating systems.

‘Alignment’ is an invitation from the artists to their audience to increase the audience’s awareness, and to bring greater understanding to what occurs on the conscious, subconscious, and metaphysical levels when engaging with art works. Gede Made Surya Darma’s paintings allow us to focus on colors that directly respond and stimulate the chakras which regulate organ function, and the structure of our ‘nonphysical’ higher dimensional holographic body of light. By absorbing these colors we are stimulating and nourishing our Gede Made Surya Darma: physical and non-physical body’s ‘Green Therapy’ needs. When we focus on Darma’s paintings, such as ‘Red Therapy’ or ‘Green Therapy’, we activate chakras via the light frequencies of these colors. Putu Wirantawan’s installation in pen on paper, ‘Gugusan Citra Batin’, draws on the fundamentalism of surrealism and abstract art, and it is a soulful odyssey accentuated in mystery. The underlying structural content of Putu Wirantawan: ‘Gugusan Citra Batin’ Wirantawan’s work is based on the principals of sacred geometry, whereby sequences of lines within harmonic ratios create codes and symbols that resonate within the subconscious. The focal point of Pras’ image ‘Soul Journey’ is a butterfly. This is the Japanese symbol of the soul. The composition is balanced in both form and coloration with its yin and yang and black and white reflecting on the Pras: ‘Soul Journey’ dualistic nature of life. It also makes reference to humanity’s ongoing relationship with nature and the soul. The central work in this exhibition is an interactive installation called ‘Alignment’, by Niccolo Italo Maria Bernasconi. Niccolo invites audience members to sit within a Niccolo Italo Maria grouping of symbols and crystals, Bernasconi: ‘Gogo Video Installation Works’ and to focus their attention on his short film. The viewer sits under a cone that directs magnetic frequencies contained within a quartz crystal rod onto the crown chakra. Within the film we see images of geometries, of the earth’s relationship to human life, and celestial precessions.

Kadek Dedy Sumantra Yasa: ‘The Holy Mountain

Kadek Dedy Sumantra Yasa’s painting ‘The Holy Mountain’ refers to the journey of the human soul from darkness into light, traditional cultural memories, and the human body as the expressive vehicle of life. Kadek reflects on archetypal cultural

memories through facial images, and suggests that traditional cultures provide holistic systems providing balanced sustenance for mind, body, and spirit. The minimalist forms presented in the painting ‘Synergy’ by Sanjiwani, allows the eyes and our cerebral focus to rest on gentle flowing forms that are uncomplicated. Our natural Sanjiwani: ‘Synergy’ response is to be soothed by the harmonic relationship between our peaceful core nature and the simple yet profound forms revealed in the painting. We are soothed by the greenish tones and the soft curves within the compositions. The works in pencil and pen, by Ni Vonnie Dewi, presents imagery which reflects her Balinese heritage through its decorative patterning. ‘Having A Rush Time with Wild Cats’ makes reference Ni Vonnie Dewi: ‘Having A to man’s relationship with nature, Rush Time With Wild Cats’ and the importance of animals, particularly pets, in our lives. Dogs and cats are generous with their love to humans, and a dog’s relationship to its master is one of unconditional love.

Education & Family

HECTOR’S Family Time The ties that bind otherwise widely disparate families and characters into a familial network are very apparent in Bali, as in many other cultures. They are decreasingly visible in western societies where the state has long since taken over the role of matriarch (or patriarch if you like) and individuals are far more mobile and have much wider choices of employment and location. So it is good still to be numbered in the declining percentile and be firmly for the family. This was reinforced during a week in Scotland in mid-May, a sojourn deemed necessary for remedial, toe-in-the-gene-pool therapy. It was a time spent among the family in the Border country where the churches are Episcopalian, a goodly portion of the ecclesiastical architecture has identifiable Norman leanings, and the food is, well, fantastic. It is true Sassenach country (Saxon country), very far from the Scotland of the picture books and tourist brochures. This made it altogether strange that the railway station near where were staying with a lovely cousin was named An Druim, in Scottish Gaelic, as well as Drem, the name by which it is universally known. There was a lovely party on the weekend before our departure for notionally warmer clines, involving several cousins and including a representative of the family’s Australian connection – a genuine one, not the ring-in Diary version. There are few people with whom it is possible just to take up a conversation where one left it two years earlier; and even fewer who on first acquaintance seem instantly to be family.

back from Edinburgh via Amsterdam to Marseille that part of the programme was a shemozzle. The queues were huge, unruly and cross, and the airport staff and security personnel similarly distempered. No one sensible objects to strict passport controls or to invasive security checks. But someone at Schiphol needs to work out that people with short connection times need to be accommodated on a more productive basis than complete lack of official interest in whether they make their flight or not. We’re in Touch NC/E/U-29 May 13

Not too many years ago departing from anywhere to anywhere out of immediate earshot meant cutting yourself off from current events in your place of origin. Sometimes this was to personal advantage: Raffles, for example, could invade Java free of any worries that someone at head office might see a tweet from him or look at his Facebook and detect a scurrilous plan in the making. Similarly, England’s wayward remittance men could safely be sent to the colonies and never be heard of again. No more, of course, with the internet ubiquitously available. So even though we’re half a world away (only temporarily; no one should get too excited) we’re fully briefed on Bali business. Among those things to have piqued our interest is an impending event in the AYANAsphere due to take place in June - happily, on a date after our return to Bali. They’re launching their grand ballroom and meeting rooms, set for MICE (spenders rather than rodents) and introducing new sister resort RIMBA at a function on June 21. We’ll be there.

Auld Reekie Revisited Family Tree We were twice in Edinburgh, a city that soothes the soul - big enough and sufficiently cerebral to be a genuine national capital, yet small enough to be both manageable and scenic - and which is a great place for lunch. The weather was bleak in the unforgiving way that bleakness acquires only nine degrees south of the Arctic Circle, but the food makes up for any chill the city can throw at you, especially in the Grass Market and on Lothian Road. Soup warms the bones as well as the heart; and at certain venues Italian cuisine, in good company, absolves all sins. What the weather serves up in the way of inclement conditions is in any case offset by the long days at this time of the year. It’s a treat to be able to sit outside (rugged up if necessary) and drink in the 10pm twilight.

It might strike some as strange that the new Mangrove Motorway through the fragile marine environment of Benoa Bay - an enterprise we are assured will solve South Bali’s horrendous traffic problems, won’t do a bit of harm to the mangroves, and will be launched (we do hope not literally) by the President in June - has not yet been given a name. They do things differently in Bali.

C/E/G-29 May 13

Never mind. Things are moving on that front now. Suggestions for names are beginning to emerge. Among them is a great proposal from Udayana University academic Darma Putra Nyoman, who says the toll road - Bali’s first - should be named after dance artist I Wayan Lotring (1898-1983), a grandmaster of Balinese dance and percussion from Kuta who contributed mightily to the development of Balinese art and culture both locally and as an international icon.

Marchon! Marchon! From Scotland we went on to Marseille (it’s better, and authentically, spelt that way) which was to be our base for a month. Our apartment, a particularly fine home exchange option, overlooks the Mediterranean (actually the Ligurian) Sea and the sweep of Provencal coastline the north and west of the city: a magic spot.

We really like that idea. It seems appropriate. There’s already been a bit of a song and dance about the road. And it would be so much better than recycling a name from the political or insurrectionist past or choosing something utterly soul (and culture) destroying as in the case of Jl. Sunset Road. Come to think of it, we’re not much into tautology, either. Undercurrent

Equally magic is the variety of eating and shopping experiences close by. We’ve even been to Carrefour, a one-kilometre stroll up the road from our beachside digs, though just as at home in Bali we prefer smaller, local shopping opportunities. We’ve found those too, and in consequence are eating really rather well.

Speaking of Sunset Road, which anyone who has to drive to or through Kuta does frequently, often in less than complimentary terms, we got a giggle out of some of the feedback in The Beat Daily recently about the new underpass at Dewa Ruci.

The walking routine is as close as we’ll be getting to the Marseillaise and its command to the citoyens to marchon, even though we are temporary residents of the city that brought the world the French revolutionary anthem. They’ll have to excuse us. Our sang is still a bit froid to make us happily sing about someone else’s nationalistic fervour. And anyway, it’s not July 14 yet.

This followed a report that the Bali legislature is inquiring into the adequacy of emergency escape staircases at the underpass, which is now open to traffi c. Our lawmakers apparently want to know where this essential bit of infrastructure is and indeed, whether it exists. They could pop down there in their taxpayer-provided limousines and have a look of course, but that’s asking a bit much.

Schengen Shenanigans

One comment on this issue related to the misbehaviour of motorbikes, a constant issue on Bali’s roads. It also suggested that given the fact that it rains now and then, and that motorcyclists invariably seek shelter, the underpass would inevitably be blocked in anything heavier than a passing sprinkle.

KLM’s Denpasar-Amsterdam service is very good. Even with an hour-plus on the ground in Singapore, the time in air from wheels up at Ngurah Rai to touchdown at Schiphol is well under 17 hours. Flying westward, the effects of jet lag are minimal, especially on the KLM schedule which effectively makes the trip just one very long night. Just set your watch on Amsterdam time on departure, and relax. We had a very short connection time in Amsterdam before flying on to Edinburgh, but (in contrast to Air France via Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris two years ago) our luggage nonetheless managed to accompany us to our final destination. But Schiphol does have a problem with Schengen area passport control and central security screening. On our trip

We’re all in favour of upgrading Bali’s arterial road system. But this would be of far greater utility if driver skills were similar improved, by several thousand percent.

Graeme Stevens

The Customer Experience Era Many issues ago in the Bali Advertiser I wrote about the tsunami of change sweeping through all sorts of businesses as the full implications of the digital age came among us. The article was called Digital Disruption and you can read it again in the Bali Advertiser Articles archives. So massive has been the change in power to the consumer that a whole range of new terminology and approaches has surfaced in just the last few years to help business understand and endeavor to take back the initiative. A range of new terms has evolved to help describe the focus on the customer and you have read my articles describing some of these: customer experience, the customer journey, co-created value, social media marketing, touchpoints, service design, brand promise and brand delivery. Customer experience is about each and every one of the interactions a customer has with your business, with you, your staff, your products and your service. The customer has only one real interest in your business and that is how well you can solve her problem, meet her needs. If your brand promise is sufficiently interesting she may continue along the journey to see how well you deliver. If she is satisfied then she may return for more. We call this the customer journey and it has five distinct phases.

1. Awareness - the customer being aware of you in the context of her need. The subsets of Awareness are search and discovery. As the business person this is where you make yourself known, about how well you can help solve problems and co-create value in your market niche. 2. Evaluation, where your customer will research, compare and decide on the lucky business. The first two phases comprise much of your business brand promise. The next three phases are about brand delivery. 3. Purchase, where the customer may register (a web site or at the gym), buy and go through post purchase anxiety. 4. Delivery of the purpose of the product or service and its use in context. This is where value is co-created by you and your customer and where the customer decides if she has solved her problem. Subsets of this phase to consider are use, getting help, share and personalize. 5. After Sales; the subsets are trust, evangelise and friendship. These five stages of the customer journey haven’t changed; what has changed is how the customer experiences this journey. Imagine the female of the Bird of Paradise species becoming aware of a need to mate. In her search for the best mate/erial she no longer needs to fly all over the forest or listen for male advertising cheeps in her immediate neighbourhood. Now she can get on the internet and easily find all the available suitors. She can check out their the blogs that help her decide how good a bower she is going to share and gain a feeling of what sort of co-creator this male is likely to be. She can engage with her social media channels to check what other hens have to say from their own past user experience or their own inspections. Is this the one who can give her an outstanding touchpoint experience? No more needing to kiss a hundred frogs to find her one true prince. No need to physically confront them all and watch their fear of rejection as they go about

their dancing and preening for her. No more restriction to the local gene pool. Instead she has available a choice from all over the forest and can afford the energy to travel for the best. And once she has made her choice and bought the deal, she can spread the results of her experience throughout the forest. She will refer this hunk to all her friends. Next season’s search will reveal the best in brand Delivery and they will be invaded with new customers. But Promises that didn’t deliver, these will forever after be met with a scornful “oh, him!” No wonder some businesses are now terrified! The losers are the ones who haven’t properly defined their brand promise (is this guy my path to paradise or a sparrow?) or whose brand promise doesn’t reflect what they actually deliver. These are the businesses that are reckless in their promises and who don’t pay attention to all the touchpoints along the customer journey. They will be found out, wither and die.

The winners are the ones who recognize that this digital age is as much a wonderful opportunity as a threat. They have recognized the benefits from social media: the combination of a targeted niche broadcast as well as an opportunity to engage on a personal level. They have adapted and survived just as Darwin and Wallace had predicted some will. Social media is hugely important for one key reason, the recognition that customers are far more likely to believe what their friends tell them about you than whatever you might say. And that is why you need to engage on social media, your campaigns are about driving word-of-mouth to spread the message more effectively and far more cheaply than with other advertising channels. Let’s go back to the Awareness phase of the journey, part of the brand promise. The old model was a monologue, a one-way conversation; it was the business telling the customer, “I know what’s best to meet your need.” But social media marketing is a dialogue and if you are going to run a campaign on social media then it needs to be a dialogue. Sales pitches don’t cut it. Messages must become conversations, target audiences are communities of people who are interested in the market niche you are selling to and who talk with each other. You must engage personally with these people. People, not hash tags. People do something with your brand because they are in love. It’s an emotional experience.

Jl. Tirta Akasa No. 50 Sanur, Bali Phone : (0361) 285 993 C/E/G-29 May 13

Your key goal from social media campaigns is to generate positive word of mouth referrals. You build respect and trust by providing useful information or feedback, and then let word of mouth take over to create the buzz that drives referrals, sales and increased market share. Sales pitches and marketing campaigns are inappropriate. Social media campaigning is not easy. Because it is a dialogue it’s not something you can fully plan for; it won’t always go the way you want or expect it to. But if your brand delivery is solid then you are well on the way for positive results. We need to discuss this subject a lot more, don’t we? Is there is any aspect of developing a successful business you would like me to write about?

By The Coach

This Sporting Life


The Bali Rugby Club travelled to Jakarta for the annual Jakarta 10’s tournament on May 5th with a large squad of 19 players that included 9 junior players. The first 4 games consist of pool games in order to set each teams’ position for the playoffs for silverware in the afternoon. With 2 close losses, a draw and a win; Bali Rugby was positioned in the Bowl playoff (below the top 8 teams). The following games were where the Bali team started to hit its straps with a comfortable win 12-0 over the Cendrawasih Highlanders from Papua and finally a Bowl semi-final against the Flying Kukri’s (Gurkhas) from Brunei. In this game the young Bali junior players really held their own against the servicemen of the Gurkhas team. An early try by the Kukris was converted and with the score at 7-0 the Bali team threw everything at the men in green in an effort to make it to the Bowl final. A gallant extra time try attempt by young outside back Scott Atkinson was waved away by the referee and left the Bali team a little deflated but proud of their efforts for the day. The Flying Kukri’s played against the Jakarta Bantengs in the Bowl final and was narrowly beaten by the local boys of the Bantengs team. Overall the tournament was won by the Singapore Wanderers who defeated the Polytechnic Shah Alam team from Malaysia. For the Bali team, Christopher Dharma was recognised for his on field and off field efforts and was rewarded with a new pair of rugby boots, while Markus Ria was selected as players player and was rewarded with three nights stay that was donated by Bali Rugby supporter the Pullman Hotel Legian. Finally, congratulations to the following Bali team players who due to their on-field efforts at the previous Bali hub game held at the Canggu Club and at the Jakarta 10’s were selected for the Indonesian national team’s training squad, the Rhinos; who will face Guam in Kuala Lumpur on June 5: BannyParasutha, Nick Mesritz, Dan Sivess, Markus Ria and Scott CRICKET HATTEN WINES BALI CRICKET LEAGUE The first two rounds of the Super 8s competition has seen Hatten Tigers in front as the only undefeated team having won both of their opening matches. In the first match on 12th May Hatten Tigers won the toss and decided to bat first. Led by veteran Soni Hawoe, who opened

the innings, they scored 6 for 89 in their allotted 15 overs. This didn’t appear to be enough but some early wickets saw Udayana crumble to be bowled out for 44 in reply, well short of their target. In the second match Lovina was declared the winner when Sanur did not have sufficient players to take the field. The second round on 19th May saw Udayana score a huge total of 2 for 156 with their captain, Suda Arsa, and Kadel Gamantika compiling a great opening partnership of 141. Sanur batted very well to reach 5 for 138 when their overs were completed but the target proved to be too big to overcome. In the second match Hatten Tigers had an easy victory over a young Lovina team. SCORES: First Round; Hatten Tigers 6/89 – (Soni Hawoe 34, Urip Astawa 15, Suda Arsa 3/26) defeated Udayana 44 – (Kadek Gamantika 18, Kadek Suardika 3/21, Soni Hawoe 2/1) Lovina defeated Sanur by forfeit Second Round; Udayana 2/156 – (Suda Arsa 78, Kadek Gamantika 50 n.o., Amol Tekade 2/32) defeated Sanur 5/138 - (Rhana 47 n.o., Manoj Joshi 21, Wayan Agus 2/22, Surendra 2/23) Hatten Tigers 1/52 – (Urip Astawa 34 n.o., Ade Yadistriawan 1/13) defeated Lovina 50 - (Rian Heo 21, Kadek Suardika 3/13, Wayan Sariana 2/13) SOCCER

Moving Mountains: The Geology of Bali If you could observe the passage of one million years in a single hour, you’d see Bali’s creation but wouldn’t be able to recognize the island until the last few seconds of that hour. To be sure, massive geologic events shaped the island’s human destiny. Out of a crucible of fire, ancestral rivers cut their way through mountains and lowland plains were scooped out of hot volcanic sediment. Just as they have spelt the fate of empires around the world, geology and geography have determined the fate of Bali’s civilization.

opportunities to cultivate of the arts.

Ancient cataclysms created an island noted for the beauty and variety of its landscapes - all within a very small area. Fast flowing rivers, deep ravines, rugged saddles and alluvial slopes score Bali’s surface. Overgrown with lush tropical vegetation, the island’s wild gorges are astonishing and sensual works of natural sculpture. The rugged east-to-west volcanic chain, dividing Bali between northern and southern halves, are covered in rainforest which stand in contrast to naked volcanic craters. Compared to some of the Indonesian archipelago’s giant Greater Sunda islands (Java, Sumatra, Borneo), Bali is quite small – about the size of the Delaware. This 5000-squre-kilometer mushroomed-shaped speck, which can be completely encircled in one day of hard driving, is only 150 km at its widest and 90 km from north to south.

The Lowlands Bali’s highest point is the a c t i v e 3,142-m-high stratovolcano Mount Agung, and the lowest areas are the beaches all over the island. Mangroves forests can dominate up to three-quarters of a tropical island’s coastlines, but Bali’s drainage has resulted in only 2,215 hectares of natural sheltered mangroves and mudflats occurring intermittently along the coast from Benoa and Serangan, as well as a large protected area in Tanjung Benoa. In under populated western Bali, expanses of unspoiled marine and forest wildernesses have been converted into the West Bali National Park.

Bali was forged as a result of the sinking of the floor of the Indian Ocean-Australian Plate under the rigid Eurasian plate to the north on which Bali, Java and Sumatra sit. According to the law of plate tectonics – the Eurasian, the Pacific and the Indian-Australian plates grind over one another on a huge scale, producing frequent geologic instability that put Bali under constant threat of earthquakes. The southern plate colliding and then sliding under the northern plate - like shoving a surfboard underneath a mattress – continues to deeply affect the interior of Bali. Layers of tertiary limestone that have risen from the ocean floor are still visible in areas such as the Bukit peninsula with its high limestone cliffs at Uluwatu. The deformation of the Eurasian plate, created by subduction, has caused Bali’s crust to fissure, leading to the creation of a string of volcanoes marching across the island, broken only by intervening saddles. This chain of mountains chafing against the Indian Ocean-Australian plate to the south causes volcanic eruptions. All of Bali’s volcanoes, dating from the Holocene era, are relatively recent phenomena, and have been more or less continuously active since their birth. The Mount Batur caldera was formed by a mammoth volcano in ancient times becoming so plugged up with enormous amounts of magma accumulating below the vent hole that when the behemoth finally erupted, the surrounding rocks and land collapsed into the hole, leaving a giant steep-walled crater that has the appearance of a great flat-floored valley. It is along the rim of this giant crater – the road from Penelokan and Kintamani - that we drive today in our cars. Pie-shaped Realms Volcanoes have had a huge impact on Bali’s civilization and culture, creating a succession of alluvial fans emanating from past eruptions of Batukaru, Abang, Batur and Agung. Rivers have their headwaters in crater lakes situated deep in the mountains, then flow naturally downhill. Since voluminous water flows over granulated ash, the rivers erode the banks and eventually carve deep narrow gorges through alluvial slopes. The boundaries of Bali’s kingdoms, in the shape of wedges aligned north to south along these ravines, were also defined by lava flows thrusting their way to the sea. These natural barriers have divided Bali’s royal realms geographically and politically for centuries until the techniques of modern engineering welded the kingdoms together with the advent of Dutch rule in the early 1900s. Before then, Bali consisted of eight small rajadom under the despotic rule of rajas that were continuously at war with one another. The mountainous geology of Bali is similar to Switzerland where canton city-states maintained independence from each other because of formidable mountain barriers that prevented communication. Bali’s indigenous kingdoms still fall roughly within the pie-shaped regencies of modern Bali. The island’s difficult topography also means that most highways carry traffic north and south rather than east to west, “against the grain” as it were. Before the construction of all-weather roads and bridges, it was much easier

At the same time, a blessed land that is attractive to three million foreign and domestic yearly visitors who support and encourage its culture is likely to have its value systems change more quickly than those living in a less attractive or inhospitable area. Bali’s rapid economic growth, 7.1% in 2012 – the fastest of all of Indonesia’s 33 provinces - distances its people from their cultural roots with the danger of leaving their heritage behind.

to cross north to south because there were no steep river gorges to span. Bali’s formidable mountain range also prevented the migration of foreign cultures into southern Bali, the stronghold of classical Balinese civilization. One hundred years ago Buleleng (today known as Singaraja) provided the only safe anchorage for Dutch ships. This city on the north coast was more heavily influenced by foreign cultures than all the other regencies because traders carrying goods arrived there from all over S.E. Asia. After the arrival of international air travel in the early 1970s, Singaraja was to eventually become a cultural backwater eclipsed by the mass tourism prevalent in the south. As you travel from the balmy lowlands and climb up into the higher altitudes of Bedugul and Kintamani the cinder block, wood and thatched-roofed structures of the south change to sturdy cottages made of stone, brick and tile built to withstand the heavy rains and wind. The landscape in these cooler climes change from cascades of rice fields to thriving gardens of maize, beans, onions, cabbage, peanuts, tobacco and papaya. The cold and harsh weather conditions in the island’s mountainous regions make for a hardened people like the original Bali Aga who inhabit the Batur caldera and still practice many pre-Hindu customs. Power Shifts: Bali’s “Fire Mountains” Volcanic activity has been intense through the ages on Bali. The unexpected 1963 eruption of Mount Agung was one of the 20th century’s most powerful, killing 1500 people and wreaking devastation caused by lahars and pyroclastic flows that also destroyed hundreds of hectares of valuable farmland. But the ejected volcanic rock from this eruption has provided abundant raw material for the building industry as well as stone carving, one of Bali’s oldest and most widespread art forms. Intricately carved reliefs, sculptures and statues large and small are carved out of a sand stone called paras dug out of Bali’s numerous deep steep sided gorges. With its very high volcanic ash composition, soft paras can be carved with as much ease and dexterity as wood. It crumbles easily when it is newly carved, ages quickly in the humid air and is so rapidly eroded by vines and other plants growing between the cracks that a lichen-covered sculpture looks blackened and ancient even though it may be just a few years old.

The thick deposits of fertile ash that Bali’s volcanoes generate, spreading all over the island through its irrigation systems, has been a leading factor in the island’s agricultural productivity. Farmers have short memories and quickly reclaim and resettle the land after each volcanic eruption. Bali’s six volcanic peaks, all exceeding 2,000 meters, also create abundant rainfall because winds push cool moisture-laden air up the slopes, causing the temperature to drop, clouds to form and monsoonal rain to fall hard and fast, swelling the rivers that rush down from the highlands through deep narrow gorges to the astonishingly rich coastal plain of south. If there were no mountains on Bali, there would be no rising air, thus there would be no cooling and thus there would be much less life-sustaining rain. The Balinese don’t suffer from the curse of geology. They benefit from geology. An important factor contributing to the creative productivity of the Balinese is the island’s well-organized cultivation system, which keeps its population well fed and sheltered. Located just 8 degrees south of the equator, Bali’s warm tropical climate with dependable rainfall, an agreeably lengthy dry season and abundant rice crops that can be cultivated without year round daily labor has meant abundant leisure time to develop over centuries a complex theatrical culture and ample

Bali has 460 km coastline but only 8% of the beaches consist of golden or white sand, found mostly in the resorts of Sanur, Nusa Dua, Kuta, Uluwatu and Tanjung Benoa. The rest of the island’s beaches consist of black sand that was caused by a violent geologic interaction. When lava contacts water, the lava cools very quickly, shattering into tiny fragmented debris, almost instantaneously creating a black sand beach. Unlike white sand, walking barefoot on scorching black sand in the mid day sun will result in burns, as black sand absorbs much more of the sun’s energy than white sand does. Because Bali has so few natural harbors, the Dutch colonized the island at a much later date than other islands of Indonesia that had more favorable anchorages. For the same reason, the coastal dwellers of Bali are less likely to be seafaring traders and fishermen. The main activities of its people are directed towards the highly fertile interior and not outwards towards the sea. First the Chinese, Arabs, Malays, Indians and Bugis and later the Portuguese, Dutch and English did most of the international trading. The topography of Bali’s fringes differ drastically from the island’s lush lowland plains. The far eastern peninsula of Bali, in the areas of Seraya, Amed and Ujung, are arid and hot where water is scarce and the land difficult to cultivate. The barren tear-dropped Bukit peninsula in the south is covered with bushy thickets, and its western and southern shores are lined with rugged limestone cliffs, making the peninsula attractive to surfers and beach lovers but inhospitable to farmers. Bali’s offshore islands in the south possess spectacular reefs and clear water excellent for diving. What will happen to Bali over the estimated four billion years left of the earth’s existence? Judging from the environmental degradation that has taken place in just the last two decades, human habitation on the island has proven to be frighteningly fragile. The sharply delineated and hopelessly subjective political territorial boundaries on Bali’s two-dimensional maps obscure the fact that - even with our unique thumbs, oversize brains and upright two-legged locomotion - we must be prepared to accept in the great sweep of geologic time that our puny, arrogant species will not prove as durable as nature’s ancient physical blueprint.

PARADISE... IN SICKNESS & IN HEALTH WHY DID SHE DO IT? The Angelina Mastectomy Debate I have had quite a few queries this week from women who are concerned that they may be at risk for breast cancer and are confused as to why Angelina Jolie has had her breasts removed as a preventative measure when in fact she does not yet have confirmed cancer of the breasts. Lets examine the facts here. Not all breast cancers are the same. The type of cancer that Angelina stands at risk for is caused by a hereditary gene mutation (alteration in a gene passed down through families). The particular gene affected is the BRCA gene. A BRCA mutation is a mutation in either of the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2. Harmful mutations in these genes produce a hereditary breast-ovarian cancer syndrome in affected families. Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are uncommon, however breast cancer is relatively common, so these mutations consequently account for only five to ten percent of all breast cancer cases in women. Women with harmful mutations in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 have a risk of breast cancer that is about five times the normal risk, and a risk of ovarian cancer that is about ten to thirty times normal. BRCA1 mutations typically confer a higher risk of breast and ovarian cancer in women than BRCA2 mutations. Having a high-risk mutation does not guarantee that the woman will develop any type of cancer, or guarantee that any cancer that appears was actually caused by the mutation, rather than some other factor, like alcohol consumption or smoking. Mutations can be inherited from either parent and may be passed on to both sons and daughters. Each child of a genetic carrier, regardless of sex, has a 50% chance of inheriting the mutated gene from the parent who carries the mutation. As a result, half of the people with BRCA gene mutations are male. The risk of BRCA-related breast cancers for men with the mutation is higher than for other men, but still low. However, BRCA mutations can increase the risk of other cancers, such as colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, and prostate cancer. So if this gene mutation can increase your risk so drastically who and how should it be tested? The BRCA gene test is a blood test that uses DNA analysis to identify harmful changes (mutations) in either one of the two breast cancer susceptibility genes — BRCA1 and BRCA2. You may be a candidate for BRCA gene testing: • if you have a personal or family history of breast cancer diagnosed at a young age (premenopausal). • with a close relative who has breast or ovarian cancer. • if you have a personal or family history of breast cancer affecting both breasts (bilateral breast cancer), or both breast and ovarian cancers. • if you have male relative with breast cancer. • If you have a relative with a known BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation. • If you have Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jewish ancestry. Naturally the test cannot be done in Bali. According to the latest info I have from Singapore the genetic (blood test) test package for BRCA is approximately S$321. Other than the gene test there are many other ways that you can detect the cancer early and decrease your chances of contracting it: 1. Know your risk factors for breast cancer. Getting older and having a strong family history are the most common risk factors. Breast cancer is rare in women under 25 years, the incidence being highest (80%) in the 45 -55 year age group. Women whose mothers or sisters have suffered from breast cancer are at in increased risk. Risk is increased in women who have previously suffered from cancer of the breast, ovaries, or womb. The risk is increased by factors increasing the number of menstrual cycles, i.e. menstruating at an early age and menopause over 50 years of age, never having children and not breast-feeding. 2. Should women check their breasts and how often? It is important for women of all ages to get to know the normal look and feel of their breasts as part of everyday activities, such as showering, dressing, putting on body lotion or simply looking in the mirror. Regular mammograms are not recommended for women under the age of 40 because they are not effective in detecting breast cancer early in younger women. This is because younger women’s breast tissue is dense, making it difficult to detect early signs of breast cancer. As a woman grows older and her breast tissue becomes less dense, it becomes more transparent on a mammogram and it’s easier to detect early signs of cancer.

By Kim A. Patra SRN/RM.

3. How do you check your breasts correctly? Most breast irregularities are detected by women themselves. (Go to for complete self breast exam info). The best time to examine your breasts is just after your period when hormonal lumps are at their lowest. Getting to know what’s normal for you will help you to detect any new or unusual breast changes. It’s never too early to start being breast aware and it’s important to keep up the habit, even if you’re having regular mammograms. 4. What sort of changes should you look out for? • A new lump or lumpiness, especially if it’s only in one breast. • A change in the size or shape of the breast. • A change to the nipple, such as crusting, ulcer, redness or inversion. • A nipple discharge that occurs with squeezing. • A change in the skin of the breast such as redness or dimpling. • An unusual pain that doesn’t go away. Nine out of 10 breast changes are not due to cancer, but always see a doctor to be sure.

C/He/I-29 May 13

5. What else can cause these kinds of breast changes? A lump or other changes in the breast may be caused by hormonal changes, which make a woman’s breast feel different at various times during her menstrual cycle. Cysts, which are fluid-filled sacs, and fibro-adenomas, which are smooth, firm breast lumps made up of fibrous and glandular tissue, are also common and benign causes of breast changes. 6. What should you do if you see or feel a change in your breasts? See your doctor without delay. The doctor will examine your breasts and usually order imaging tests such as a mammogram and/or an ultrasound. Sometimes a biopsy is also needed. 7. How does breast cancer actually develop? Breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the milk ducts or lobules of the breast grow out of control.These abnormal cells can then invade the surrounding breast tissue. If left untreated, cancer cells in the breast tissue can break away and spread to other parts of the body via the bloodstream or lymphatic system.

C/He/G-13 June 12

8. What can women do to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer? Lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of the disease include exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy body weight and moderating alcohol intake. Other factors known to decrease the risk of breast cancer are having children earlier in life – before the age of 30 – and breastfeeding for 12 months or longer. 9. Where can I get a reliable breast screen in Bali? Good question. While there are several mammogram machines on the island they are overworked and often out of order. If you are looking for a mammogram for a routine check consider having this done overseas on your annual vacation (Singapore or Thailand are the closest) or in your home country. Australia has free breast screening centers for it’s citizens. If you are concerned about a lump or suspicious breast change see a doctor that is skilled in manual breast exam (I am able to do this for you at my practice) and they will recommend the best options for further exam if it is necessary. Most of us know at least one local lady that I am sure has no idea of what breast cancer is or how it can be prevented. Why don’t you pass this life saving knowledge on to at least one lady. Info in Indonesian can be found at http://kan Excellent brochures have also been produced by BIWA. There is a Local Womens Clinic in Denpasar which has wonderful health education and screening for ladies. The Yayasan Rama Sesana contact details are 0361-247363,, FB : Yayasan Rama Sesana.

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

The Power of Love to Heal

“Love is a force that can change our reality” Richard Gordon According to Sandra Ingerman, Mental Health Counselor and Author, elements for miraculous healings have a formula as follows: intention + union + love + harmony + concentration + focus + imagination. These are all the elements that I use when healing others but I had never consciously put it together as a formula. Most of my clients who come to me have some common patterns which often come from youth. These patterns are the negative imprints they have carried throughout their lives which are locking them up and keeping them from having true joy and peace. One of the first things I do is muscle test to see if the client totally loves and accepts herself and whether she believes that she is good enough. These are the beliefs that cause the most damage in our lives, so once we can recognize them we have the power to clear them. I use a system that assists the client with accessing his/her higher self to ask for the new desired belief to be imprinted in their consciousness. Sometimes the client isn’t aware of their negative imprint or the trauma that created it, so I then utilize a variety of hypnotherapy techniques to help him/her access any hidden negative imprints and then make positive suggestions while the client is in a deeply relaxed state, to assist him/her with creating a new positive imprint in their subconscious. While I guide the client through the process, I am totally present with the intention for her healing, I merge with the client’s energy field, feel a deep love and peace and I am totally focused on her imprinting their desired new belief. It is a moment of oneness which is so incredibly beautiful that it is intoxicating beyond words. There is no drug that I know of that is comparable to this feeling. “When the spiritual masters of past and present times have performed miraculous healings, they have all been in a state of oneness where true love flows through from the power of the universe. Universal love is not a concept that can be understood or rationalized. Universal love is a formless energy that has no bounds,” says Sandra Ingerman. We all have the capacity to tap into the field of Oneness and experience miraculous healing. Through our intention + union + love + harmony + concentration + focus + imagination we can heal ourselves. Panache Desai, a world renowned inspirational speaker who claims to be a direct channel of this Universal energy which he resonates to all beings, says that we no longer need techniques or tools for healing as we once did. Once we recognize that we are all One and hold the love vibration within us, we have the power to heal ourselves and others. Nothing else is required. So how do we tap into this field of Oneness? Sandra’s Ingerman’s formula is an excellent way to do this. Many of

C/He/G-15 May 13

the elements in her formula are the same as the one’s used in meditation. Through daily meditation practice utilizing her formula we can train our minds to let go of our stress, negative self talk and judgments of others – all the things that keep us separate and cut off from Oneness. What would happen if we always lived from a space of love and gratitude? What would happen if we stopped trying to analyze and understand everything and just allowed ourselves to open up to the experience of love? What would it be like to totally love and accept ourselves exactly as we are and do the same for others? It is such a joy for me to experience a client shift from not loving and accepting himself to totally loving and accepting himself in one session. I see a transformation before my eyes that is truly remarkable. Their whole energy changes and there is a shine in their eyes that wasn’t there when they first entered my office. This love is all we need to heal ourselves and move into the greatness of who we truly are. If everyone on our planet already totally loved and accepted themselves, what would our world be like? Would there still be war? Would we still destroy our environment? Would people continue to commit horrible acts against humanity?

C/He/I-12 Dec 12

I invite all of you to truly embrace the energy of love and feel the vibration of Oneness. Please give this energy to the earth, to your children, the animals, plants and even strangers who you briefly encounter in your day. Take time to do a ‘Loving Kindness’ meditation each day as this will help you to cultivate more love for yourself and all beings. We are all a tiny spec in this vast Universe, but together we are the field of Oneness. Now is the time for all of us to recognize how powerful we truly are!

The Brangelina Cohort

Earlier this month the actress Angelina Jolie disclosed in an Op-Ed article in the New York Times that she had undergone a pre-emptive double mastectomy following a genetic test showing she was at high risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. Her announcement aroused a storm of comment, mostly favourable both informed and otherwise. ParacelsusAsia takes a look at some of the issues raised and reveals the hidden political agenda that may have contributed to the timing of her decision. When an icon of female beauty, who just happens to be partnered with her male counterpart, undergoes self-mutilation to this extent and to a part of her body that forms a significant part of her physical allure, it is not only bound to be front page news, but is likely to lead other women to consider what brought her to such a decision. Contrary to popular opinion elsewhere, Americans are not any more insane than the rest of us, it is just that their media makes them look that way. For insane is pretty much what you’d have to be to put yourself through the pain and cost of an unnecessary wannabe double mastectomy. In case you didn’t know, Angelina Jolie is a famous 37-year old actress in a relationship with actor Brad Pitt since 2005. They have six children, three biological and three adopted. Despite the predictable media hoopla the couple have managed to retain their privacy, and actively support ecological, social and various liberal causes. Jolie is the daughter of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand, who divorced in 1980. As a teenager she was raised unconventionally and some would say dysfunctionally in New York and Beverly Hills. Though well connected in artistic and Hollywood circles her upbringing was not unduly ‘brattish’ or privileged financially. In 2007 her mother aged 56 died after an 8-year battle with both breast and ovarian cancer and her maternal grandmother had also died of ovarian cancer at age 45. Concerned that she might carry their cancer gene Ms Jolie elected to undergo a double mastectomy in February this year after the results of a US$3,000 test performed by Myriad Genetics, showed she had an 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer and 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, due to the defective BRCA1 gene. In taking this decision Ms Jolie reduced her chances of getting breast cancer to 5 percent. She plans to follow this up with an oophorectomy, removal of the ovaries, which eliminates her risk of ovarian cancer.

Warming to her task, she noted this was an elective procedure that, “to women who are warier than Jolie is of permanently modifying their bodies, might feel is a form of self-mutilation. Perhaps it’s unfair to compare a preventive measure of noble intent to, say, repeatedly puncturing your skin and injecting it with ink. Yet for me, it’s hard to separate the message from the messenger… the girl with the tiger tattoo made her body less a temple than an exclamation point. Jolie’s surgery, whatever its motivation, is an extreme action performed by a woman prone to extremes”. Whoa! Yes, Ms Graham, since you mention it, I’d say that is a little harsh. The thing about icons of course is we all tend to project onto them. However familiar they are to us we don’t really know anything about them. That’s one of the reasons they get paid a lot. What Ms Graham is driving at and won’t quite say is that in her earlier days Angelina Jolie was a latter-day punk, much into ‘moshing’ and cutting herself. So bloody what, you might say? That in no way invalidates her decision even if questions of self-esteem still form part of her psychological make-up. To her credit Ms Jolie owns - “at heart I’m still a punk”. What, one wonders, was Ms Graham into back then…. hardly the Ramones, the Carpenters perhaps? Of course money has to have a role in all this. The villain of the piece is Myriad Genetics, the Utah-based company that charges $4,000 for testing the two genes. When you know you can have your 20,000 genes sequenced for about US$1,000 or 5 cents per gene you start to understand the odium starting to pile up against this company. Formed by a cabal of merchant pirates, greedy academics and medical cut throats in Berkeley CA back in 1997, Myriad invented nothing and yet have managed to acquire the rights to what amount to your genes. They have refused to license the test to anyone else and enforce their patents very aggressively, so far preventing anyone from making available better and cheaper tests. People have almost certainly died as a result of not being able to afford the test.

Following the surgery at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills to remove both breasts, Ms Jolie A case brought by the ACLU and the underwent reconstructive surgery Tattoo visible on Angelina’s left shoulder in ancient Association of Molecular Pathology Khmer Pali reads - “your beauty will be that of involving implants and a surgical contesting patent validity has been going Apsara. Wherever you go, many will attend, serve procedure to retain her own nipple you and protect you, surrounding you on all sides”. back and forth, since 2009, wending its areas. It took just nine weeks to way toward the Supreme Court, who are complete the process, which cost to give a final ruling next month. Ms somewhere around US$200,000. Jolie’s announcement is therefore curiously well-timed, arousing massive public interest. Remarkably, the world knew nothing of all this until on 14 May, in an eloquent opinion piece in The New York Times, Ms. Could it be that our beautiful icons, true to the subversive Jolie announced what she had done and the reasons that had radicalism of their youth coupled with the wealth and prestige led to her decision, writing: that their current celebrity confers, have timed this to put mud in the eye of Daddy Warbucks and score one for John & Jane “I choose not to keep my story private because there are many Doe, if not for us all? women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope they, too, will be able to get I like to think so, and I do. But hold on a minute. Just take a look gene tested, and that if they have a high risk they, too, will at what has happened to the share price of Myriad Genetics know that they have strong options.” on Wall Street…. it’s gone through the roof. Somebody somewhere is betting big on the court that handed the presidency Media and public interest was intense. Most of the comment to George Bush will always come down on the side of Big praising her courage, public concern and devotion to family. Business. And someone else somewhere else has an even Others expressed concern that she had underestimated bigger bet to win each way. Angelina may have been able to the pain and discomfort caused by mastectomy and breast keep the news of her mastectomy quiet but not so quiet that reconstruction, not too mention the aesthetic end results and someone in the know couldn’t have orchestrated an inside trade. the cost. They feared many women could be influenced into undergoing such a procedure when they didn’t need to and No, no! This ‘sleb’ stuff can drive you mad. Enough! that only 1 percent of all women had the BCRA1 and BCRA2 deviation. What you do need to know from all this is that breast surgery and reconstruction is seldom if ever the walk in the park Apart from the standard quota of nuts, kooks & fruitcakes Angelina Jolie’s eloquent message might make you believe. sounding off for and against on the social media and in the The other thing is that only very few women have the two BRCA blogosphere the only sour note tended to come from certain deviant genes and that even if you do, there are other of Angelina’s sisters – other women. Some of them clearly perfectly good options open to you other than a double felt she is a spoiled child of privilege, a psychologically mastectomy. damaged self-publicising self-mutilator and…. it’s easy for her to say all this when she had it all, including Brad Pitt….. what Lastly, despair not! If the US Supreme Court is ass enough to about less beautiful, less talented, younger women, who were uphold Myriad’s patent it is very possible the US government poor and had not yet had children, whose unsupportive itself might manage to do the right thing and change the law. partner either cheated on them or had left them? And what about all those tattoos, they wanted to know? Jennifer Graham, a divorced mother of four, an ex-White House speechwriter and a columnist for the Boston Globe while grudgingly accepting Ms Jolie’s reasons finds all the praise hard to take. “When you’re already the fairest of them all, you can lose a breast or two and still be quite fetching. Brad Pitt isn’t going anywhere”.

Metabolic Syndrome So you are feeling tired, not even enough energy to go for a walk or exercise class. You’ve been eating lots of processed foods and not many vegetables of late. Your stress levels are through the roof due to work or family issues. You are feeling pretty low and finding it hard to sleep. A cousin at a family gathering has commented on the extra kilos you are carrying around your waistline, asking if you are pregnant. Enough already! Is this you, or someone you know? Pull out that measuring tape and read this article. It may save you from future health complications. Metabolic Syndrome is seen as a main risk factor driving some of the most serious diseases we see today. It is described as a modern epidemic with one in three people over the age of twenty five having Metabolic Syndrome. People with this syndrome are three times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and up to five times more likely to develop type II diabetes. How Do You Know If You Have Metabolic Syndrome? Have you been diagnosed with? • Have extra weight around your waist or a “beer gut” • Overweight with a waist measurement of more than 80 cm if you are a woman or more than 94 cm if you are a man. • High blood pressure • Diabetes or be at risk of diabetes • High triglycerides • Low “good” HDL cholesterol • Family history of diabetes, heart disease or stroke. If you have answered YES to three or more of these questions, you may have Metabolic Syndrome. If you answer yes to any of these questions, you may be at risk of developing Metabolic Syndrome. Please book in to a qualified health care practitioner for a health check. What is Metabolic Syndrome? This is a name given to a collection of symptoms that when occur together, may lead to serious chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The first sign of Metabolic Syndrome is if your waist measurement is over the 80cm for women and 94cm for men, even if it is only just a little bit over you may be heading towards a very unhealthy future full of serious complications. Other Early Warning Signs • Headaches • Depression • Low Energy • Low Libido • Impotence • Memory Loss • Snoring • Sleep Apnoea • Skin Tags What Causes Metabolic Syndrome? • Lack of exercise • High carbohydrate diet • Poorly managed stress • Smoking • Lack of quality protein • Processed, refined food • High Kilojoule intake • High fat foods • Family history of diabetes or heart disease Change the Course of your Health Today Many people are not able to recognise the symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome. Your best bet is to book in to your

health practitioner and get a health check-up. This syndrome may lead to a future of debility that could have been prevented with a few simple changes. Remember there is always someone to support you. Just ask. Here are some simple recommendations; • Regular aerobic exercise will help fat loss. Get in touch with a gym or personal trainer who can keep you motivated and safe on your journey to a healthier lifestyle. • Nutritional herbs and supplements may be required to help address the causes of Metabolic Syndrome. • A healthy, protein and vegetable rich eating plan with healthy fats will improve your metabolism, making it easier to lose fat and feel good. • Create a stress management plan with your health care practitioner. There are many options available such as yoga, meditation, walking or just having fun and a few laughs with friends and family. • Give up smoking. Did you know that smoking is a form of sugar addiction? Ask your health practitioner for skills to reduce your cravings and get off the cigarettes for good. • Get your waist measurement, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose checked. • Set realistic goals. Work out what you really want to achieve. Write them down. Commit to them and get a move on to a more balanced lifestyle. Get support from a friend or a professional. When you are accountable for your actions it is so much easier to succeed. • Avoid processed food. Skip the breads, cakes, biscuits and lollies. You may find that you are irritable and lethargic for a few days. You may even have a headache. Guess what? Sugar is addictive! It may cause inflammation in the body, irritation, poor sleep to name a few symptoms. Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and minimise side effects of sugar toxicity. Quality protein, such as nuts and seeds, cheese and eggs are wonderful at curbing sugar cravings. So instead of heading for the bakery, pick up a packet of raw nuts and seeds to maintain blood sugar levels. Take note of your temperament and see if it is more balanced and calmer without the sugar. Become a food investigator; have a close look at what quantity of sugar and salt and fats are in the food you eat. Have a look at the ingredients list; you will be shocked at how many extra, unwanted kilojoules are hiding in your processed food. • Talk to your family members to find out what each member has been diagnosed with. Many times we comment that it is our genetic disposition. I think it is very important to look at what habits have been passed down the generations. For example, my Grandmother lived on a farm and ate thick white bread covered with slashings of butter, jam and cream. My Mother also loves the same treat. I too enjoyed this as a child until I realised that it may not be the best thing for my body. Don’t get me wrong, a treat every now and then is fine, just not every day.

We have now passed through the eclipse portal and the 3rd of seven, Uranus square Pluto hits. This then is the time for integration as we head into the Gemini New Moon on the 8th. Mercury enters Cancer and heads towards a retrograde at the end of June. Mars leaves Taurus on the same day and Venus enters Cancer a couple of days later in early June. Neptune turns retrograde this fortnight, through until mid-November. Mercury and Venus in Cancer are going to oppose Pluto early in June. So although integration is upon us, we will be challenged by those in our life to make the changes that the square augmented during May. Communication will be deep and sensitive. Relationship is challenging and so too is verbal expression within them. It is paving the way for that beautiful grand water trine that we have in store in July. Jupiter will join Mars in Cancer, trining Saturn in Scorpio and the Neptune in Pisces. The New Moon Gemini is joined by the Sun (which is what marks a New Moon) Mars and Jupiter. Mercury is in an opposition to Pluto and as the ruler of Gemini, is a star player in the New Moon chart. As I said, communication will be challenging. This T-square between the Mercury/Pluto and Uranus (still a degree away from its square position) will create the necessary tension to get the new in place by the Full Moon Capricorn on the 23rd. Remember all of this upheaval is part of the Grand Orchestration. NEW MOON 18 Gemini 01 June 8, 2013 12:57 p.m.

ARIES As Mars transitions from Taurus to Gemini there is a noticeable shift in your mood and energy levels. It may have felt like you were wading in the mud over these past few weeks. Thankfully this is about to come to an end and you’ll be feeling much more enthusiastic and vital and way more communicative, even if it is still stressful and challenging. You are a key player in the current celestial unfolding. Uranus in your sign is square to Pluto and also to those Planets in Cancer. Cancer is a very touchy feely sign and those around you; if not you yourself could be expressing this oversensitivity.

LIBRA Venus in Cancer throws in some more challenges for you. Just when you thought they were all done and things couldn’t get any more unusual, along comes the bit that you weren’t expecting. So now that this is out in the open, what are you going to do with the information? Don’t worry; everyone is going through their own set of bizarre circumstances, so you are definitely not alone. In fact, there is a great call to share emotions through communication now and you will probably feel much better when you do. This is not the poor me, attachment to drama stories, kind of sharing, it’s more heart oriented.

TAURUS Venus your ruler is set to enter Cancer and this bodes well for you and your relationship ideals. Water and earth harmoniously move together if they are unchallenged. There could be a tendency to create a little mud though, if the Cancer side of the equation is overly triggered and goes into a watery flow. There is definitely the potential here as Mercury is moving close to this sensitive Venus. It could be a little difficult to work things out without feathers being ruffled. The best way around situations is to hold your ground, while assuming an adaptable frame of mind. Possibly easier said than done.

SCORPIO Pluto is still challenged by Uranus and not only that, now the Cancer Planets come along to oppose it. If you can’t see the wood for the trees, don’t worry all goes well in the end. Trying times are sent to strengthen your resolve and to insist on patience and persistence. Be yourself then and deal with whatever is on your plate, as best you can, knowing that this too shall pass. These are the days we actually miss, once they’re over. Face your oppositions with courage and be willing to speak your truth, just do it in a sensitive way. There’s always the possibility to offend. Walk and talk with awareness.

GEMINI The Sun is transiting your sign now and through until the 23rd. Your planetary ruler Mercury is in the sign of Cancer and will go retrograde again on the 26th. It is much easier when the Suns messenger (Mercury) is in the same sign as the Sun. So while we have this great need to communicate our ideas, the wires can get a little crossed as significant others in our life, don’t quite get the gist of what we are saying. Never mind, we will get the retrograde period to go back over our presentation and by then the Sun will have moved on in Cancer and things will be more harmonious. Have patience this month.

SAGITTARIUS Jupiter is getting ready now to exit the sign of Gemini and move on into Cancer. This has been a very auspicious year for you, one in which you were confronted by your opposite polarity and given the opportunity to find the balance point, to bring some of your loftier ways of being into a more mundane expression. You’ve learnt a lot and shared a lot of information. Soon it will be all about family, love, nurture and the bounty of life, abundance to be shared. How will you rise to this next challenge and what needs to be left behind? These are the questions this month as we delve again into the higher mind.

CANCER Well how are you feeling now that the Eclipse season has come to an end? It’s been a little challenging for everyone, so no need to take things personally. You have a lot of support coming up now as the Planets line up in your sign, Mercury and Venus and to be followed by the Sun on the 21st. With the New Moon in Gemini, this month is all about communication, networking and movement. If you’ve been feeling a little stuck, this could be the time to take a little trip and free up your heart and mind. It’s easy to get bogged down during stressful times and this is the time you need the change the most.

CAPRICORN Saturn is continuing her backward momentum and will join up with Jupiter and Neptune next month and create a beautiful dance that will bring hope through emotional stability. Let’s see how you will play your role in these coming weeks. Family is high on the agenda now, with Planets in Cancer, and more to come. Although the challenges are definitely there and playing themselves out before your eyes, there is still a sense of optimism filtering through and a certain feeling of liberation from the past. Continue on your way and your journey will open up before you in miraculous ways.

LEO With the Sun in Gemini you may be feeling more light-hearted than you had anticipated. So although things are primarily a little slow moving, at least your thoughts are up and there is enough movement to keep depression or oppression from your door. The challenge comes from the sensitivities of those around you. It’s hard to always be up when others are down. Take a little time-out for yourself now and move your body. This is the best way to keep stagnant energy flowing. The Sun will team up with Jupiter soon and bring some surprising news and a great burst of enthusiasm.

AQUARIUS Uranus continues to travel in the square formation this fortnight and is joined by Mercury and Venus in Cancer. The areas of family, work and adventure are all pretty much covered and the missing leg is relationship. It could be then, that relationship is the balancing factor in this equation. You may have been spending too much time on your other life projects and given this aspect too little attention. Although you always have people and friends to share your life with, you are being asked to go a little deeper, a little more intimate in the relationship area. These are the days of deep transformation through sharing.

VIRGO Finding the right words could be your forte this month. Many will be in need of an ear and some quiet words of inspiration and you may well be the person to share this. Gemini Planets threaten your nervous system, but let this not deter you from the job at hand and in fact often the busier you are the better it is for you, during stressful times. A concentrated focus is good for you. Too much mental stimulation is always a negative however, so avoid the overstimulation from this through a little quiet contemplation. In fact it’s all in the balancing act this fortnight. It could be tough to get it right.

PISCES Neptune in Pisces, your ruling Planet, is moving towards a harmonious trio with Saturn and Jupiter. So although things may appear to be in a state of disarray right now, come July, there will way more fluidity and peace. This current shake-up is a necessary part of the play and is in effect releasing you from so many aspects of your life that no longer serve you. You can sense the thread of synchronicity even amidst the apparent chaos. This is a time of deep surrender and deeper still receptivity. Listen with your heart and act from the inner guidance that you receive. All is in alignment with God’s/Goddess’s plan.

Local News British Backpacker Dies in Sumatra after Drinking Methanol Laced Gin A young British backpacker has died after drinking poisonous methanol labeled as gin during a holiday of a lifetime. Cheznye Emmons, 23, was served the deadly spirit while visiting an orangutan sanctuary in the jungle of Indonesia as part of a trip around Southeast Asia with boyfriend Joe Cook, 21. The following day, the beautician woke up unable to see and was put through a tortuous journey out of the jungle - traveling by rickshaw and taxi to reach a hospital five hours away. The 23-year-old bought the tainted alcohol from a local shop. Doctors put her in an induced coma as they battled to save her from the effects of methanol poisoning – blindness, kidney damage and seizures. Mr. Cook, from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, who survived the poisoning, broke the news to her parents, Pamela and Brenton, who flew out to be at her bedside at the Columbia Asia Hospital in Medan. But Mr. and Mrs. Emmons were told there was nothing doctors could do and their daughter’s life-support was switched off five days after the poisoning. The methanol had been poured into a bottle labeled as gin and sold in a local shop in the popular tourist site of Bukit Lawang in northern Sumatra. Methanol is extremely poisonous and is known to cause kidney failure, blindness, seizures and death- as little as 30ml can be deadly for an adult. Alcoholic drinks contain pure alcohol, known as ethanol, but not methanol. Methanol is a toxic chemical component that can be used for fuel, as an ingredient in formaldehyde, plastics and paints or as an anti-freeze or solvent. In recent years cheap homemade local alcohol and even apparent international brand name spirits are being contaminated with methanol - a poison you can’t taste or smell. High taxes have pushed up prices of manufactured wine, beer and spirits in the Muslim country encouraging a long-standing practice of stretching spirits with the locally made spirit known as arak – but some immoral suppliers are

going further, adulterating those local spirits with the poisonous methanol. In 2009 two Britons were among 25 people to die in Indonesia after drinking palm wine spiked with methanol. Alan Cole, 59, and Rose Johnson, 48, died in separate incidents after consuming traditional arak. Rachel Craig, 22, from Ireland and her boyfriend Rene Puper, 23, who was Dutch, were also among the dead. In June last year Swede Johan Lundin, 28, was poisoned by a mojito laced with methanol. His fiancee, Michaela Pechac, watched in horror as he died. In December an Australian schoolgirl was blinded after drinking a tainted cocktail while on a trip to Bali. An 18-year-old boy was also temporarily blinded during a trip to Bali in November and in February 19 year-old Liam Davies from Perth died from drinking a vodka mixer was laced with methanol in Lombok. Miss Emmons’ brother Michael, 33, said the family was still in shock and struggling to come to terms with his sister’s death. They are demanding an investigation. ‘From what we understand, the shop would have poured the gin out of the original bottle and then replaced it with methanol,’ he said. ‘It was in the original bottle with the gin label on it. ‘The shop which sold the alcohol has been shut down and there’s a police investigation. We just hope it doesn’t get swept under the carpet like some of these things do.’ The family are desperate to warn young Britons of the dangers of buying alcohol while traveling to remote spots. Miss Emmons’ father, 47, a builder, said: ‘I would not want anyone to go through what we have been through. ‘If we can save the life of just one traveler by warning them of the dangers of poisoned alcohol then something good will have come out of this terrible tragedy. ‘Cheznye was the apple of my eye. She was my little girl and I am never going to see her again. She was a ray of sunshine that would light up any room that she walked into.’ (May 17th 2013)

Thousands of Babies Sold on Indonesian Black Market On Tuesday (7/5), Lindawati Suhandojo, 35, an alleged document forger for a baby-selling group, was tried in a Jakarta court, however police say the mastermind is a 62-year-old former midwife called Hastuti Singgih, aka Linda, who had been plying her highly profitable trade for more than 20 years. It’s unclear who her customers were, whether Linda screened for their suitability or asked what they planned to do with the babies. According to police, she and her co-conspirators trawled the maternity wards and health clinics of Jakarta hunting out poor or unmarried women, or those with too many mouths to feed. “They are booked in advance before the baby is even born,” said the head of West Jakarta Police Criminal Investigation, Hengki Hariadi. “There was no down-payment.” The price to the mother, according to police, was between 1.6 million and 2.5 million rupiah - $160 to $250 - enough in a country where many struggle to earn a few hundred thousand rupiah a month. Once the syndicate had checked the baby’s health, police say corrupt public servants from Jakarta’s population and civil registry office “made birth certificate and family cards”. The syndicate sold the babies for prices starting at 70 million rupiah - around $7000 - a 3500 per cent mark-up. The operation was on an industrial scale - police say that 12 babies were bought and sold in November and December 2012. They found 40 more baby pictures on a mobile phone belonging to Linda. For one baby, a passport had been made and a $US500 Tiger Airways ticket to Singapore was found. But in another tragic case the baby was unhealthy, so Linda refused to accept him. She tried to hand him back to the mother who also knocked him back. Arrests began in January and by March, five babies had been recovered. Two were hospitalized and others taken to orphanages. The conspirators face up to 15 years’ imprisonment.

It’s not the first baby-selling racket uncovered in Indonesia, but Linda’s impunity over 20 years suggests it’s widespread in a country where it’s very difficult for non-Indonesians to legitimately adopt a child. Authorities believe thousands of children have been bought and sold in the past 10 to 15 years. In 2004 the illegal adoption issue caught out an Australian couple, who believed they were getting a baby legally but were rejected by the Australian authorities when they tried to have their child’s citizenship changed. The couple exposed the agent behind that scam, lawyer Isnania Singgih, who spent four years in jail. The country introduced strict laws in 1983 to stop adoption agencies operating as so-called “baby farms” for foreign customers but according to the Commission for Child Protection, it has driven the practice underground. It’s also a place where the supply of poor, undocumented children is plentiful. Economic growth rates of 7 per cent per year do not mask the grinding poverty of millions, and 60 per cent of the 76 million children born since 2005 have no birth certificate. Arist Merdeka Sirait, the chairman of Komnas Perlindungan Anak, the National Commission for Child Protection, says he has come across many cases of child trafficking in the past 15 years. He reports them to police, but few prosecutions result. He says babies are smuggled out by boat to Malaysia through the notorious Batam Island - the closest port to Singapore. Strict rules on overseas adoptions were imposed in Indonesia in 1983 when private adoption agencies were discovered running what was described as a “cash and carry” business for Western families. But the growth of syndicates, such as Linda’s, show the baby farming continues. It’s just become harder to spot. (May 11th 2013)

Insufficient Pilot Training Blamed for Lion Air Crash Indonesia’s largest low-cost carrier Lion Air has been criticized after a preliminary investigation into last month’s Boeing 737 crash off Bali found a young, second-in-command pilot was at the controls at a “critical time”. A preliminary report into the Lion Air plane crash last month has urged the carrier to address safety concerns by increasing its pilot training, with a particularly focus on emergency landings. Investigations commenced when a Lion Air pilot attempted to land a brand new Boeing 737-800 at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, but somehow ended up in the sea. Although the cause of the accident is still yet to be determined, the National Transportation Safety Committee’s investigation thus far has ruled out aircraft issues, claiming the Boeing was completely airworthy, but did issue three safety recommendations including; proper training for pilots and how to follow regulations at critical altitudes as well as how to respond when visibility is low, ABC News reported. According to the report, the aircraft’s 24-year-old co-pilot had called out twice, stressing he could not see the runway – the pilot then took over the controls and called for a second landing attempt before the aircraft and its passengers ended up in the ocean. The aircraft broke in half, but landed in shallow water, allowing passengers to swim to shore. (May 16th 2013) Indonesia Executes Three Death-Row Convicts The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) officially announced it had executed three death convicts at Nusakambangan Penitentiary, Cilacap, Central Java on Friday (17/5). The three death convicts were Suryadi, Jurit and Ibrahim. Suryadi who came from Palembang, South Sumatra, was sentenced to death for murdering all members of a family in the area of Pupuk Sriwijaya, Palembang, in 1991. Jurit and Ibrahim were sentenced to death for jointly committing a premeditated murder in the Sekayu area, Musi Banyuasin District, South Sumatra, in 2003. Mahfud Manan said that the execution was carried out at 00.00 hours Western Indonesia Standard Time (WIB). The bodies of Jurit and Ibrahim will be flown to Palembang, South Sumatra, for burial while the body of Suryadi was buried in Cilacapa, Central Java. (May 17th 2013) Young Indonesian Inventor Creates “Anti-Rape” Shoe When 14-year-old Hibar Syahrul Gafur saw a report that a girl his age had been subjected to a brutal gang-rape attack in India last July, he was profoundly affected by the news. “Women often become victims of sexual abuse because men consider them weak,” Hibar said. Similar cases were making the news in Indonesia at the time, and the Bogor student feared for the safety of his 19-year-old sister. When the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) held a competition for young inventors last August, Hibar saw an opportunity to design something that women could use to ward off attackers. “At first I planned to make a bra that could give out an electric shock, but it was too complicated to work in practice, so I finally settled on a shoe,” Hibar said. His shoe featured a nine-volt battery packed into the sole along with circuitry to increase the voltage, all connected to two electrodes along the front of the shoe, which were cunningly disguised as decorative flourishes. Kick someone with it, Hibar said, and the skin closes the circuit between the electrodes, delivering a jolt powerful enough to stun the attacker and give the woman sufficient time to make an escape. “It’s quite effective,” he said. “If you get stunned, it’ll leave you disoriented for maybe one or two minutes.” A crude design by his own admission, it was still good enough to win fifth prize in LIPI’s National Young Inventors Awards.

Illegal Immigrants from Iran Detained in Bali’s Hotels

Judges Give Reasons for Rejecting Bali Briton’s Appeal

At least 95 illegal immigrants from Iran arrested on Sunday (12/5) off Benoa harbor in Bali have been detained in a number of hotels on the Island. “There is no more space in our detention houses for the newly arrested illegal immigrants,” Head of the Denpasar Immigration Service Bambang Wisnu Wardana said here on Monday (13/5). Detention houses at the Bali Immigration Service are fully occupied with 55 other illegal immigrants moved in recently from Bengkulu. The 95 illegal immigrants from Iran including men, women and children have been given temporary accommodation at three small hotels facilitated by the UNHCR, the U.N. organization for refugees in Denpasar. The Iranians said their destination is Australia were they will seek political asylum. Police are questioning the crewmen of the ship involved in the case. (May 13th 2013)

Three leading judges have expressed “great sympathy” for a British grandmother facing the death penalty in Indonesia as they announced their reasons for rejecting her appeal against a refusal by the UK government to pay for her legal representation. Giving their court of appeal ruling in the case of Lindsay Sandiford, the master of the rolls, Lord Dyson, Lord Justice Elias and Lord Justice Patten said the government’s policy of not providing funding for legal representation to any British national who faces criminal proceedings abroad – even in death penalty cases – was not unlawful. Last month, Sandiford’s lawyers challenged a high court ruling that the government was not legally obliged to pay for “an adequate lawyer” to represent her. But the three judges dismissed the appeal on 22 April, saying they would give their reasons at a later date. Announcing those reasons on Wednesday (22/5) in a written judgment, Lord Dyson said: “One is bound to have great sympathy for the appellant. “She is seeking to challenge a decision which, if not overturned by the supreme court of Indonesia, will mean that she will be executed, unless she is pardoned. The death penalty is, in my view, rightly regarded by the British government as immoral and unacceptable.” He said Sandiford had argued that the policy of the foreign secretary of not providing funding for legal representation in criminal proceedings abroad, even in death penalty cases, was unlawful. But he said the high court was “right to conclude that it is not”. Lord Dyson said it was the “longstanding policy of the UK to oppose the death penalty in all circumstances as a matter of principle”. He went on: “As the secretary of state concedes, it would be possible to produce a policy under which funds for legal representation were made available to British nationals in certain defined circumstances.” Sandiford, 56, was sentenced to death by firing squad by a court in Bali for taking £1.6m of cocaine to the island.

International airline Garuda Indonesia is installing OnAir’s mobile and internet services on its fleet of 28 A330 aircrafts flying to destinations across Asia, the Middle East and Europe. OnAir establishes a connected zone within the airline, using an on-board piocell. Passengers’ phones can only connect to the piocell, and a central server interfaces with the aircraft system to establish an air-to-ground link, using a satellite communications system to allocate air-to-ground resources. The system allows passengers to use their mobile devices as they would on the ground. The first installation will take place at the earliest in October this year. (May 12th 2013) Indonesia Extends Logging Ban to Protect Rainforest Indonesia has extended a logging ban aimed at protecting rainforest despite fierce industry pressure, the government said Wednesday (15/5), although green groups say the move still does not go far enough. Vast tracts of the sprawling Indonesian archipelago are covered in trees, including some of the world’s most bio-diverse tropical rainforest that is home to endangered animals such as orangutans, tigers and elephants. Palm oil, mining and timber companies in Southeast Asia’s top economy, have chopped down huge areas of the native flora making Indonesia the world’s third-biggest carbon emitter. Under a $1-billion conservation deal with Norway, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono two years ago signed the moratorium, which banned new logging permits for primary, or virgin, forest. On Wednesday, the government confirmed Yudhoyono had signed a two–year extension, as had been widely expected, and the moratorium would remain in its original form. The ban applies to new permits for primary forests and peat lands with the exception of projects already approved by the forestry minister and others considered vital, such as for power production, it said. Indonesia, the world’s top producer of palm oil that is used in many everyday items from soap to biscuits, has faced fierce industry pressure over the moratorium. Green groups have also been highly critical; despite government claims it is reducing the rate of deforestation. “Companies and local governments have found all sorts of ways to get around the ban,” Friends of the Earth campaigner Zenzi Suhadi said.

Two More Terrorist Suspects Arrested in C Java Police anti-terror squad Densus 88 arrested two more terrorist suspects in the Central Java cities of Surakarta and Purwokerto on Tuesday (14/5) morning, a spokesman said. “The two arrested terrorist suspects on the nations most wanted list are identified as Samidi and Slamet. Both belong to the Badri group,” head of the National Police (Polri)`s public relations bureau Brig. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said here on Tuesday. Slamet was arrested at Sadewa Street in Surakarta and Samidi in Gunung Sumbing Bancar Kembar area in Purwokerto. “The two terrorist suspects specialize in assembling bombs,” he said. They once attended training in Central Sulawesi`s Poso town, he said adding “Police seized bombs made of nitroglycerine substance at their houses in 2012.” The arrest is the latest in a series of operations targeting terrorist suspects. Earlier, Densus 88 shot dead seven terrorist suspects and arrested alive 17 others during a standoff in Jakarta, Bandung, Kendal and Kebumen. The seven were identified as Abu Roban, Bastari, Toni, Bayu alias Ucup, Budi alias Angga, Junet alias Encek and Sarame. The bodies of the terrorist suspects were taken to the police hospital in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta, for an autopsy. (May 14th 2013)
