The Man who Saved the Elephants By Alison Elisabeth

The Elephant Safari Park and Lodge in Taro provides a peaceful sanctuary for displaced elephants, and a highly enjoyable experience for visitors to the island; but it is the story behind its creation, and the history of the gentle giants that ramble across it, that make this park so unique. It’s a chronicle of disappearing forests, neglected elephants, dramatic rescue operations, and a man with a mission and the will power to see it through. His name is Nigel Mason.

“The elephants are our star attraction, so we treat them like stars,” says Nigel as an 800-kilo elephant called Desi playfully wraps her trunk around him. “Look, they are so gentle you can put your hand right in their mouth,” he demonstrates. I content myself with feeding our large friend bundles of young coconut leaves, for which I am rewarded with a great big elephant hug, I scratch the trunk that has a firm grip on my waist – its not exactly soft, but the all encompassing embrace is kind of nice. 30 elephants live in this lush oasis, with a landscape painstakingly created to replicate their natural habitat, the low lying rainforests of Sumatra. As we wander around I find a flurry of elephant activity; some carry guests on forest treks, others kick soccer balls, or wade in the bathing pool soaking up trunks of water to give themselves – and anyone who happens to be nearby a shower. A very cute baby elephant runs amok, trunk madly swinging, playing like a frisky puppy, he is one of three babies born in the park (a successful breeding program is a sure sign of animal wellness.) Although I had originally been reluctant about visiting the park – animal theme parks in Asia can be depressing places – I end up having a really inspiring and very happy day, surrounded by these magnificent animals that are so obviously well loved and cared for. “We offer a complete elephant experience,” says Nigel, “we’re able to be really interactive, and guests can get close to the elephants in a way that they never could in a traditional safari park.” Refugees While you might be reading this and thinking, “Surely these elephants would be better off in the wild,” the answer is yes, in an ideal world they would be, but these animals are refugees from the ongoing war of man vs nature, that has seen the destruction of around 30 million acres of rain forest in Sumatra in the last 30 years. “The species have been hounded out of Sumatra,” says Nigel. Rampant logging has destroyed much of their natural habitat; the rainforest that was once their home steadily replaced by oil palm and acacia plantations. Unfortunately an elephant isn’t discerning enough to differentiate between natural forest and man-made plantations – he just sees food. A single hungry elephant wandering through an oil palm plantation can wreak havoc, eating up to 250 kg a day – that’s a lot of plants, and a lot of lost revenue. “Elephants are migratory,” says Nigel, “they follow fixed routes that may take 12 months to complete. The problem is, when they get back to where they started a year ago, the forest might be gone, replaced with an oil palm plantation for example – and believe me, oil palms are very tasty for an elephant, so suddenly people’s livelihoods are being destroyed.” Deemed as giant pests, farmers and plantation owners sometimes resort to poison, using pineapples laced with strychnine. The ‘lucky ones’ are rescued and relocated to Government training camps, forlorn places that lack the facilities and the funds to properly care for the elephants that literally waste away. Nothing evokes the magical allure of the jungle like an elephant, but for the 2000 or so endangered elephants living in increasingly fragmented pockets of Sumatra, and for the 700 incarcerated in the camps, the future is grim and uncertain.

From Sumatra to Bali It’s not like Nigel, as a child growing up in England and Egypt dreamt of one day coming to Bali to rescue elephants, but with a life that can only be described as adventurous and colourful, it somehow makes perfect sense that this is what he ended up doing. At the age of 15 he immigrated, alone, to Australia, making a living digging ditches and picking fruit, followed by a brief foray into the music industry. A spontaneous trip to Bali in 1980 sealed his fate, when he fell in love with the island, and not long afterwards with Yani, the beautiful Balinese woman who would became his wife. By 1989 they were running Bali’s first white water rafting tours, which soon morphed into the company Bali Adventure Tours. Nigel describes himself as an animal lover, but the elephants came into his life quite by accident when he met a man who had bought nine Sumatran elephants to Bali as a tourism venture, but was having trouble taking care of them. Nigel was so moved by the poor condition of the elephants who were living in a dried out rice field, that he knew he had to do something. “They deserved a whole lot more,” he says. He secured some land in the hills of Taro, north of Ubud, and in 1996 opened the Elephant Park, originally as an adjunct to the rafting business. But Nigel is not a man who does things by half, once he took on the first batch of elephants, he set out to find out everything he could about the animals and how to best look after them. Within a year he was on his way to Sumatra to rescue eight more elephants from the government camps, returning with a ten - truck convoy that travelled six days non-stop to bring the animals to their new home in Bali. By 2000 the park had expanded and improved, to include landscaped gardens, a restaurant, a museum, water treatment, a sustainable waste disposal system and a breeding area. Ready to rescue more elephants, Nigel returned to Sumatra in 2001 planning to bring back another ten, but this mission turned into a fouryear heartw r e n c h i n g bureaucratic nightmare, in the midst of which Bali was bombed, tourism plummeted and businesses across the island collapsed. Finally in 2004 the paper work was in order, the funds secured and ten Sumatran e l e p h a n t s , including two babies were loaded onto trucks for the arduous trip across three islands to bring them to Bali. An Australian film crew documented the road trip and the resulting film ‘Operation Jumbo’ (available at the park) makes riveting viewing. Some things you didn’t know about elephants We walk on to the museum, where I get a crash course on the anatomy, myths and history of elephants. The collection includes original Dr Seuss and Jumbo prints, a 15,000 year-old giant wooly mammoth skeleton, and a pretty decent elephant painting by Ronny Woods. I learn that in the past many elephants lost their lives so their tusks could be turned into billiard balls and piano keys. Moving on to the sprawling openair restaurant, we take a seat overlooking the bathing pool and the picturesque gardens. Nigel tells me that the Sumatran elephant is the smallest in the world, up to five times smaller than its cantankerous African cousin. While they can be gentle and playful, they have strong and unique personalities and get bored and despondent if they are just hanging around. They also need to exercise, so join the daily rotation for elephant rides, (the weight of two people is easily borne by an 800 kilo creature;) lodge rooms have their own docking station so guests get door to door service. And yes, the adage about elephants having incredibly long memories is definitely true – Ramona, who came by truck in 1996 has gone on to become an exalted painter but she still dances, a trick taught to her by young boys during her days as a youngster in an elephant camp in Sumatra. As we chat, her baby, Guntun, the

park’s cheekiest resident and expert gate opener streaks across the grounds, bellowing like a trooper, Nigel tells me that he has also developed his mothers aptitude for painting. Elephant Art While an elephant skillfully kicking a soccer ball or wielding a paint brush may seem a little gimmicky, I learn that in the wild they will often kick around coconuts, or use sticks, pebbles and leaves to make pictures in the earth. Nigel explains that the park elephants are given the freedom to express themselves in whatever form appeals to them; those that have a natural aptitude for painting are actively encouraged, with results that can only be described as abstract. Each has a different style – although Ramona’s mahout (handler) says “She paints only when she is inspired; ” some of her pictures have sold at Christies for over $3000. The elephants were taught to paint by the founders of the Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project, who visited the Park in 1999. The aim was to produce saleable art to help raise awareness of the plight of these gentle giants, and to raise much needed funds for the park’s Sumatran Elephant Foundation. While Nigel hopes, in time to bring more rescued elephants to Bali, for now the Sumatran government has halted transmigration, so proceeds from the foundation are used to provide elephants in the camps with extra food, medicine, veterinary care and vitamins. Nigel breaks off from our interview to grab a chainsaw – it seems that one of the trees bordering the bathing pond is dead and in danger of toppling over, tourists gather round to enjoy the spectacle as he skillfully lands the offending trunk in the pond wades through to attach ropes and supervises as two elephants effortlessly haul it out. His absolute commitment, accessibility and hands on approach to everything certainly accounts for a large part of the park’s success, as does his dedication to the environment. For him, “Conservation is not just something that we should do, but something that we have to do.” The park has been built to have a minimal impact and acts as a role model for safari parks around the world. “ We don’t just protect the environment, we remove anything that could damage it;” waste water is turned back into pure water through an advanced filtration/treatment system; manure (truck loads of it) gets turned into fertilizer, and 90% of the 150 staff are from Taro. The village also receives royalties from elephant treks and earns money through supplying food to the park. How to help Wild life and conservation groups applauded the declaration of the Tesso Nilo National Park in the Riau province of Sumatra in 2004, which has a forest block that is large enough to support a viable population of Sumatran tigers and elephants. “It’s a step in the right direction” says Nigel, but perhaps a case of too little too late, and a road has already been put through it, giving easy access to illegal loggers. He encourages people to help the elephants by supporting the foundation through donations or buying art work, but for him the only way to really save the elephants, the orangutans, the tigers and all the other jungle creatures of Sumatra is to buy back large areas of forest to be used for national parks, “But this, ” he says “would require large amounts of money from someone like Richard Branson or Bill Gates……..We live in hope.” Copyright © 2011 Bali Advertiser You can read all past articles of BA Feature Article at

Jeremy Allan:

NC/Ns/A-30 Nov 11

C/Ns/P-02 Nov. 11


Roving journalist based somewhere in Indonesia

Who was the most unforgettable character you met in the course of interviewing people who lived the events in your books? Probably Monica in Jakarta Jive, the ethnic Chinese Indonesian student whose talent for photography dragged her from a sheltered middle-class life into facing the horror of systematic rapes during the May 1998 riots. Was there any time during your “research” that you were in danger?



Not at all. That was a major theme of the book, to show that Indonesia is so inherently safe that a foreigner, if dressed sensibly and behaving politely, can wander around in a riot zone or the poorest neighborhoods without fear. Where were you when the first Bali Bomb exploded? I was sitting in my house in Bogor wishing I were in Kuta. I had arranged to meet friends visiting from Australia, but had been compelled to cancel my trip because of an important meeting in Jakarta the following Monday. Strangely, when I called the company on Monday to confirm the meeting, no one seemed to know anything about it. What was the most poignant fact you learned when researching Bali Blues?

Jeremy Allan had the sort of uneventful, suburban childhood that left him completely unprepared for life as an expatriate writer in Asia. Jeremy was born in Vancouver, Canada where he dropped out of high school and college before he started traveling in his early 20s. He backpacked through most of Latin America in the 70s, lived in Spain for a year, then set out for North Africa with the intention of heading back to Vancouver. That was when he discovered he had a lousy sense of direction. In 2001 Jeremy published Jakarta Jive and in 2005 Bali Blues. Both books tell the stories of how common Indonesians (and a couple of token foreigners) deal with, and overcome, social and economic upheaval in their respective communities. When was your first trip to Indonesia? I was Shanghaied, or “Singapored,” to be precise. An oil field recruiter discovered me in a backpacker dormitory on Bencoolen Street. He desperately needed a field supervisor for a geophysical survey crew in Kalimantan. I had worked for season as a jug hustler in a seismic survey crew in Canada. For the recruiter, that seemed to be sufficient qualification. What do you like about living here? The fact that I can’t even remember what it is like to be bored. There is always something interesting or refreshing to do or see right outside your door. When did you know that you had a talent for writing? Talent is too strong a word. Maybe “the ability to string ten words together in a sentence without humiliating myself” is more accurate. I started writing in fits and starts in my teens, but began writing seriously during the long lonely nights in my field camp in the Kalimantan rainforest. What was the first piece of writing you published? A piece for a Hong Kong Sunday supplement magazine about rescuing and caring for a baby orangutan in Kalimantan whose mother had been killed by poachers. This was before keeping orangutan was illegal. At any rate, I eventually surrendered Rimbani to a rehabilitation project for return into the forest. Do you make your living solely by the pen? By default. All my other attempts at making a living have ended in disaster. How long did it take you to write each book? Three years, the first two being wholly devoted to the fine art of procrastination, an essential part of the writing process.

A little-reported fact is that Indonesians per se were not barred from the Sari Club, but the bouncers only admitted locals with some standing in the community, such as champion surfers or successful business people. A couple of those A-list Bali residents would be alive today if there had been a blanket prohibition on Indonesians entering the club. Do you only write about Indonesia? Yes. I figure if I devote my efforts to explaining Indonesia to foreigners then one of these days I might begin to understand the place myself.

C/Ns/I-16 Nov 11

Who is your publisher? Yellow Dot is one imprint of Afterhours Books, a Jakartabased publishing house devoted to exposing and promoting “the best of Indonesia.” They have published some pretty impressive books recently; I feel rather humbled when I see my book alongside the books of other writers in their catalog. What project are you working on now? Riding the Ring of Fire, a chronicle of my cycling adventures in Bali and Java, and my planned ride from Aceh to Flores. I will try to climb all the volcanoes along the route, thereby justifying the snappy title. What inspired you to write about your cycling adventures? The village is the heart and soul of Indonesia. Even in the largest cities, most neighborhoods are organized along village lines. Showing up in a village on a bike at nightfall gives me a plausible excuse to stay in a village for a couple of days and chat with the locals, gaining insights into the community that would often be denied a more formal visitor like a journalist or NGO officer.

C/Ns/G-16 Nov. 11

In a nutshell, what advice can you give to a beginning writer? Save your nutshells, and anything else that will burn. You will need it to make your coffee when you can’t afford the gas. Are there any other subjects you want to talk about? Nothing that can be printed in a family newspaper. How can we get a hold of your books? My books are available at all the English language bookstores in Jakarta and Singapore, and at Periplus outlets throughout Indonesia. Ordering information for printed and ebook copies are at For anyone interested in being considered for Siapa, please contact: <> Copyright © 2011 Al Hickey You can read all past articles of Siapa at C/Ns/G-19 Oct. 11

Restaurant Review

Fine Dining by the Sea! Sakala is a serious attempt to create a true fine dining restaurant on Bali’s southern shores. It is under the management of International Maitre d’ and restaurateur Herve Hedbert. In the kitchen is talented French Canadian chef Frederic Bouley who arrives in Bali with an impressive CV having worked with Joel Robuchon (2 Michelin stars Monaco), and at Le Louis XV (3 Michelin stars Monaco) and La Palme d’Or (2 michelin stars Cannes France). Together Herve and Frederic produce a true fine dining experience of International standard without losing that Bali feeling. Lunch is a more casual affair, mainly served in the pleasant ocean lounge and pool bar areas, but still gives you a small insight as to the wonders of full evening dining at Sakala. Salad of Smoked Salmon with feta, organic greens, heart of palm, endive, red onion and capers, King Crab Salad on fresh tomatoes, asparagus and avocado in a lemon and coriander vinaigrette. Entrees of Arancini Risotto Croquette with mushrooms and peas, tomato sauce and melted mozzarella. Tasmanian Salmon with melted goat cheese. Wagyu Burgers, Cheese Plates and Flat Bread Pizzas can be ordered whilst looking across the white sand beach to the vast blue ocean beyond. Late evening, from 10.00 p.m. to 1.00 a.m., Sakala offers a tempting bar menu; Peppered Beef Cheek Spring Rolls with truffle scented horseradish cream, Mini Wagyu Beef Burgers, Red Curry Lentil Burgers and that French International special, Croque Monsieur.

Barramundi. It is with black tiger prawns, squid and a ragout of sweet corn and asparagus. Big Eye Tuna Tataki is with a salad of crushed fennel, an orange emulsion and vanilla oil.

Everybody does Pumpkin Soup, but rarely does it taste like the one at Sakala. Butternut pumpkin is used and the rich creamy flavour that ensues is added to by pieces of grilled rock lobster and slivers of mushroom. On top a small mountain of cappuccino foam. Tasmanian Salmon Tartare are small rounds, covered on top with Avruga caviar, at the centre a perfect boiled Quail egg with soft yolk. Delicate but with subtle and contrasting tastes. Roasted Quail Breast is served with mushrooms and asparagus. The Big Eye Tuna Tataki is with crushed fennel, orange emulsion and vanilla oil. The jumbo Alaskan scallops are just that. By far the largest I have ever seen yet still tender to taste, they have been grilled and are served with rolls of crispy polenta, sitting on baby spinach with young asparagus and cucumber beurre blanc, scattered with Oscietra Caviar. Their Carpaccio of Butterfish is an amazing dish. Very plain to look at upon serving, a layer of overlapping paper thin flesh studded with micro diced fresh fruits, still frozen. Wrap the butterfish in small parcels around the fruit and the result is one of amazement that something that looks so simple can taste so great!

C/R/I-07 Sept 11

Desserts have rarely been high on my priority list unless they are exotically different or very French! More than one chocolate dish on the dessert menu immediately turns me off! I saw one menu recently with 6 out of the 8 offerings being chocolate…a total lack of originality. At Sakala there is the mandatory chocolate dish, Mousse of 70% Bitter Valhrona with crisp hazelnut orange marzipan, mandarin sorbet and lime praline. An Old fashioned Bombe Alaska [ice cream and fried berries flamed with Kirsch, raspberry sorbet] is certain to prove popular with Sakala’s regulars. A fruit delight is the Mango and Mangosteen Salad, with blueberries, macadamia nuts, passion fruit sorbet, coconut mousse and Cape gooseberries. The exotic is in the form of a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich. Now you may think that this is only for the kids, but it is also a favourite with adults as well. A swirl of peanut butter ice cream sits on a square slab of intensely flavoured raspberry jelly. A combination to remember! For a first visit to Sakala the recommendation is to order either the Discovery Menu [4 courses with some choice] or the wonderful Chef’s Epicurian Tasting Menu of 6 courses, all small exotic tastes that leave you wanting a quick return to Sakala. Overall Sakala is a wonderful top end addition to Bali’s dining scene, in an area previously lacking in anything even approaching this quality of food and service.

Move inside to the restaurant proper and dinner is a gastronomic delight. Sakala gives full attention to all those ’little things’ that can make or mar an evening dinner. The result is the real difference between a memorable night and just going somewhere to eat. It all begins with the Amuse Bouche, a small trio of Oyster in olive oil, mini Scallop and a roll of Calamari on a spoon. The calamari soft and tender, not a trace of rubber, this chef certainly has some unique kitchen techniques.

Oh joy, oh precious laughter. Those crazy, zany, how-can-they-possibly-talk-so-fast-inIndonesian-let-alone-Balinese ex-pat comediennes are back in the limelight. These are long-term Ubud residents and a truly multicultural mix. The four are Australian Alex Ryan, American Rucina Ballinger, Swiss Suzan Kohlik and Italian Antonella Desantis - all now busy Indonesian citizens except Alex, a permanent resident. So now and again Bali beams a smile of delight as the Gedebongs put aside their families, their successful businesses and their community activities to split the sides of participants at select lucky Bali events. This month three Gedebongs (the Italian spice was missing) wowed both the Sanur Festival and an international Toastmasters Convention, with delegates from Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. The lasses, who perform original songs and comedy skits in fast and fluent bahasa, mesmerized both local Balinese and the Indonesian and overseas visitors – they had them rolling in the aisles. For bookings, E:>. KEBUN When is a garden a café? When it’s the latest piece of genius by the Bali Spirit group, a little European-style restaurant called Kebun (bahasa for garden), tucked between siblings, The Yoga Shop and Tegun Gallery, on Jl Hanoman. Aiming for a different clientele than their successful KAFE and Little K, this intimate little spot serves herbed Australian lamb, rare beef, cheese drizzled New Zealand mussels and all sorts of other droolable, not vegetarian not raw deliciousnesses to tempt the “I’ve been trying this healthy kick for far too long” palette. And judging by the enthusiasm of the tasters in the bustling crowd at the super super soft soft opening this month, the garden won’t be a secret for long. Bali Spirit group; P: 0361 970 992. THE COFFIN OR THE MIKE? An international study of fears showed that the top two fears in the western world were dying - it came in second - and public speaking. Public speaking is often useful in a career, and mastering it can be empowering, especially for people with a speaking phobia. Ubud’s Asyik Toastmasters club is a safe space to polish both leadership and communication skills. Toastmasters’ “Competent Leadership” program includes critical thinking, giving feedback, time management, planning, delegation, facilitation, motivation, mentoring and team building. Useful for local employers, as well as their employees. Invest 25,000rp for a meeting at Campuhan College (1st & 3rd Thursdays every month, registration 6pm). Because when asked to attend a funeral, you don’t want to be more afraid of giving the eulogy, than being the body in the box! Email: Andry <> or phone 62-81337 290 712. BIGGEST GATES – GUINESS RECORD Somewhere in Bali, two of the world’s biggest gates are currently under construction, carved by some of the island’s most revered master craftsmen and featuring several panels of unforgettable images of the Ramayana. They are entries in this year’s Guinness Book of Records. More importantly, the gates will record for posterity both the Hindu teaching tales and the skills of the craftsmen who created them.

SMALL KIDS SUPPORT STREET DOGS An auction of artworks produced by Grade 3 students at Green School at Three Monkeys Restaurant on December 2 will raise funds to benefit BAWA, the charity that provides veterinary care and adoption services for Bali’s street dogs. The youngsters elected to support BAWA as their class charity this school year and have produced bracelets and created paintings, drawings and multimedia art to sell to raise funds and awareness of their program. Green School Community members and members of the public are invited to the exhibition opening and auction, which will include finger food and welcome drinks provided by Three Monkeys fabulous kitchen. The Grade 3 class will give a multi-media presentation. Opening/ Auction 6pm, Friday, December 2.

With superb Italian cooking, including the melt in the mouth, “I think I’ve died and gone to heaven” prawns, squid, snapper and saffron risotto, this little tucked away treasure would do well anyway. But when Hans Snell’s delicate, elegant Balinese widow comes out to greet your table, and tells you riveting stories about her Dutch husband, it makes for an unforgettable evening. Snell had worked for the Dutch government in Indonesia for many years, but never went back to Europe after hiding in the mountains of Java in the 1940s rather than go to war against his adopted homeland. He was considered one of Ubud’s finest artists and his gallery shows some of most treasured artworks. Tuesday – Sunday from breakfast to dinner, with home delivery pizzas that really are extra bagus.

Would you like a prize with that? Writers, publishers and booksellers the world over are hoping that being able to label a book a prizewinner, is a major drawcard to book buyers today. Judging by how many literary awards exist internationally (hundreds, with new ones almost annually), the allure of approval from a panel of aficionados, grows. And any good publisher wants their authors in the race. A win’s best, but shortlist, long list—any list helps. Enormously. And it’s not just for the prestige. While important for some, it can be vital for readers to help choose from the piles new titles (and millions of ‘old’) on offer at any time. How many? Brace yourselves. Worldometer’s site says 1,023,888 new titles internationally, this year alone. Some of the most prominent prizes are the Nobel Prize in Literature, the Man Booker, and its sister, the Man Asian Literary prize; the Pulitzer (a series of prizes), the International IMPAC; the Costa—another series, given for both high literary merit and also works that are enjoyable reading. (Why do those two not necessarily go together?); the Neustadt—a biennial award, like the Nobel, for a body of work. There are awards based on genre—the Hugo (for science fiction or fantasy), the Astrid Lindgren for children’s writing, the Agatha (for crime). Some are given in specific regions—the Commonwealth Writers Prize recently enlarged its scope to include best book and best short story. In the Indonesian publishing world, there’s the Saraswati Literary Award for Lifetime Achievement. Australian awards include the Miles Franklin for the best novel or play portraying Australian life ‘in any of its phases’. Then, there’s gender. The Orange Prize, celebrating the best novel in English by a woman of any nationality is already widely known but, according to a new, active literary committee in Australia, is just a start. Decrying the unequal recognition of books by women in major literary award shortlists, they’ve introduced a new award—the Stella. So, would you like cash too? Of course, it’s not just the status and peer approval that matters. Some come with sizeable prize money too. The Nobel, the apex in literary terms, is also the highest paying at $US1.4 million. The IMPAC winner gets acclaim and an account-bolstering €100 000 Euros; Man Booker attracts £50 000 and the Miles Franklin will boost the coffers by AUD$42 000. Is the quality indisputable? While it’s the hope that awards signal distinctive and excellent writing it’s not always the case. (Latest Booker, yes; previous? hmmm). You’ve heard the saying, ‘The pen is mightier than the sword’? The English novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton, who wrote those famous words, was also famous for others that have,

inadvertently, given rise to a somewhat-less-than-desired prize. This tongue-in-cheek accolade—the Bulwer-Lytton— from another much-quoted line: ‘It was a dark and stormy night’ is awarded to entrants who deliberately ‘compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels’. There’s some appeal—manufacturing ‘stinkers’ might not be as easy as it sounds. But more often than not, these lists provide the kind of groans and cringes that writers would rather their works didn’t elicit. Another ‘Clayton’s prize’ is the Literary Review’s Bad Sex in Fiction Award which goes to the worst description of a sex scene in a novel. The 2005 shortlist included Salman Rushdie, Marlon Brando, Ben Elton, Paul Theroux and JM Coetzee and went to Giles Coren for Winkler. When the crowd at the awards ceremony cheered, they were reminded by Alexander Waugh that it was not a booby prize, but an award for bravery. Also known as ‘The Bad Hemingway’, the International Imitation Hemingway Competition is an annual contest that pays mock homage to Ernest Hemingway by encouraging submissions of a ‘really good page of really bad Hemingway’ in a Hemingway-esque style. The 2002 winner was The Old Man and the Flea, nudging out The Bug Count also Rises.

While the judges on the panels tend to be literary heavyweights, not all qualify as such. The Diagram (Prize for Oddest Title of the Year) began life to relieve the boredom among booksellers at Frankfurt’s Book Fair. Winning in 2008 was The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-milligram Containers of Fromage Frais and, more recently, Michael R Young’s Managing a Dental Practice: The Genghis Khan Way. Writers trying to devise a great title will attest to how hard it is to find the one. Prizes producing more publishing Award winning authors often get snapped up for their next book. But sometimes, inclusion on the ‘wrong’ list is just what’s needed to sell more books. Such is the notoriety of the booby prizes that they’ve led to no fewer than six collections of the Bulwer-Lyttons, including: • It Was a Dark and Stormy Night (1984), • Bride of Dark and Stormy (1988), • It Was a Dark & Stormy Night: The Final Conflict (1992), The Diagrams also led to Aurum Press releasing, in 2008, How to Avoid Huge Ships and Other Implausibly Titled Books. Their 2009 follow-up—Baboon Metaphysics And More Implausibly Titled Books—sold very well. So…whether you’re guided by prizes for the next book to buy. Or are the kind to eschew prizewinners and go for the lesser-knowns, you’ll need some way through the stacks; some way to know that the time and money you’re investing is going to reward you back. Interesting times. C/U/G-30 Nov. 11

Sailing Vessel Kelolo‘s Indonesian Adventure “Every village we anchored at has given us a special story to tell.” James from sv Kelolo

Adventure of a Lifetime James and Sam are young people and are on the adventure of a lifetime. Not backpacking around the world but sailing through the exquisite waters of Indonesia. They are in Bali at present after having sailed from Brisbane to Darwin then to Bali via Saumlaki, Banda Neira, Ambon, Wakatobi, Bonneraita, Flores and south Lombok. James said, “We came with no expectations and have never worried about security or felt threatened in any way. The people have been fantastic. Every village we anchored at has given us a special story to tell.”

James and Sam Buy a Yacht

They started their adventure in August 2010 in Brisbane by buying a yacht. The sv Kelolo is a 41ft William Garden ketch built in Taiwan in 1972. It is a perfect boat for cruising the tropics. Plenty of deck space for relaxing after coming off watch and with plenty of shade from the main sail, jib and mizzen. Lazy jacks to make tidying up the boat at anchorage a lot easier, no rolling up heavy sails after a passage. Swivel vents on the deck to let hot air out from down below, a natural form of air conditioning. My fave is the aft cabin with a double bunk. It is a perfect chill zone to get away from whatever is bugging you. Go down below, shut the cabin door and its all yours. Open the hatch to let a soothing breeze in and then gaze out the portholes and check out what is happening around the boat. Other crew members on the yacht could be miles away when you are luxuriating in an aft cabin of a 41ft yacht. The forward cabin is not the same and not as good. The anchor chain bangs on at all hours and the rocking and rolling is more pronounced. Imagine this, you have just had a fantastic sail from some remote part of Indonesia and anchored in crystal clear waters and you are flaked out reading a book or Kindle in your own aft cabin just as some local fisherman paddles by. Heaven.

Refit of sv Kelolo B e f o r e heading out into the wide open seas James and Sam carried out a major refit that took 10 months to complete. Not an easy task as the work is often d i r t y, i n confined spaces and can be expensive. Always at the back of your mind is that the job has to be done properly because anything that goes wrong will be at sea and not on dry land. Of course just

to add to it all is the fact that all these jobs are done in full gaze of other yachties also working in the hardstand area. They often come over and check out what you are doing and are fairly free with their advice. For James and Sam it paid off big time. It has been their floating home ever since. James again, “We are stoked with the boat. All the time, effort and money we put in we have got back.”

Start of Indonesian Sailing Adventure They arrived in Darwin around the time over 100 yachts from all over world had gathered to participate in the Sail Indonesia Rall 2011 and thought they would join in the fun. Leaving Darwin five days after the official start date of 23 July they headed north to Saumlaki. The sail out of Darwin was not good as the wind dropped and the seas glassed off. After two days sailing however they hit Saumlaki for a quick stop then onto Banda Neira. The winds were a lot better this time coming from SE at 10 - 15 knots. Banda Neira is a town of 15000 in the Banda Islands part of the Maluku province and was once the centre of the spice trade. According to Sam, Banda Neira is, “stunning with a deep and sheltered harbour. Massive lava flows plunged into the sea and there are thermal waters to swim in. Spices growing everywhere and has a random untouched feel about it. We did some diving and saw many magical coral gardens in crystal clear waters.” Ambon was their next anchorage and they had heard some bad reports as we all have about Ambon. But Sam said, “It was enchanting and hectic and had a fine harbour to sail into.” She also said that she was saddened by the fact that many of the Sail Indonesia 2011 fleet chose not to visit Ambon.

They took a hike to visit the Ambon War Cemetery where over 1000 Australian soldiers are buried having lost their lives in World War 2. From Ambon they sailed for Wakatobi to join in the Sail Wakatobi 2011 event. About 15 to 20 yachts were there also and they were treated to some fine hospitality. The locals put on some fascinating cultural displays and made the visitors feel very welcomed.

Freezing at the top of Mt Rinjani Lombok

It is hard to imagine shivering in the tropics but take a look at the photo of James and Sam at top of Mt Rinjani in Lombok. It looks like they got all their wet weather gear on to protect them from the cold. Beanies, high collars, warm jackets and Sam even has gloves on. Rinjani is an active volcano rising to 3726 metres so it is a reasonable climb to the top. It has a 6km by 8km caldera that has a lake with the beautiful name of Segar Anak which means ‘’Child of the Sea’’. The lake is 200 meters deep and has some hot springs. These two young and attractive people should be proud of their achievements so far and it is not over yet. At the time of writing they are planning to revisit Lombok, a place that gave them a great lift. Not to go climbing but to visit some very special Indonesian friends. Not a bad destination to head for. Happy Sailing.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

C/CE/G-24 August 11


The Paradoxical Pressures of Paradise Believe it or not, just like many modern human beings, Balinese also suffer depression, anxiety, paranoia that in some cases may even lead to suicide. You only have to pick up any random local tabloid to learn about yet another person who has taken their life for no apparent reason. In a traditional Balinese family, everyone lives in one compound. No matter how big that compound is, it’s not always possible for such a large number of people in a small personal space to get on. Gossip, envy, competition and personality conflicts invariably leads to tension – tension that, whilst complained about to others, is almost never resolved with the family. Potential pent up stress and anger! Community pressures, encompassing both religious and tradition, place demands on Balinese that cannot be avoided, for risk of being—at the very least—gossiped about or—at the very worst—ostracised from the very community you will need to cremate you when you pass on. Potential fear and paranoia! With an ever expanding global economy booming in Bali, Balinese need to work hard to pay for life’s necessities: children’s education and health, religious obligations, paying electricity, water and telephone bills, food, and clothing. All of these costs increase exponentially each year out of synch with wage increases. Many work long hours in the tourism industry which expects them to keep regular hours and predictable holidays when their own community expects them to devote days and days to ceremonies at the drop of a hat. Potential stress! As Balinese become more middle class, aspirations to buy this or that, aspirations that often lead people deeper into more debt than they can handle. All this, the result of that affliction coined years ago in the West: afluenza (affluent influenza), aka ‘wanting more and more and more’. Potential envy, anxiety and frustration! Yet the problem is there and can be remedied, there are surprisingly few psychiatrists or psychologists in Bali. The few that exist are expensive or inaccessible, leaving many people are left untreated. Hopefully in the future, the local government will consider free mental health services for these people in need… Vaughan Hatch has immersed himself with Balinese culture, living with locals in Bali since 1997. He speaks fluent Indonesian and Balinese, and is unashamedly addicted to playing gamelan. A linguistic, archaeology and publishing graduate, he works for indOKiwi ‘linguistic and cultural solutions’ in Sanur. Email him on or call (0361) 464201 for further queries.

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes The original ‘Planet of the Apes’ was made in 1967. It was to become a seminal Sci-Fi movie, and it also spawned various sequels, which were of dubious quality. Now, 44 years after, appears this fantastic ‘prequel’. The movie sets out to explain how ‘The Planet of the Apes’ came into being. Apparently, it’s all to do with genes. A research scientist is endeavoring to discover a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. He inoculates some laboratory chimpanzees with a test vaccine. One of these chimps is to give birth to a son, Cesar, and he spontaneously inherits his mother’s new genetic code. Cesar is blessed with super-intelligence. Later, after mistreatment by some humans, Cesar turns rebel, and he instigates a chimpanzee revolution. Director Rupert Wyatt’s movie is superb. Apart from some extraordinary special effects, he tells his story with much simplicity and clarity, along with an outstanding visual impact. It is hard to tell how many of the chimpanzees are robotic, real, or computer-animated, but, with only a hairy costume, his posture, and his eyes, with which to perform, Andy Serkis is absolutely brilliant as Cesar. This is the very best Sci-Fi Action movie of the year. Conan, The Barbarian Okay, the original ‘Conan, The Barbarian’ was made in 1982. Following his weight-lifting sagas, this was the movie to set Arnold Schwarzenegger along his path to cinematic glory. This new version takes itself rather seriously, and it has none of the sense of fun and adventure that Arnold’s rollicking romp possessed. However, if you like sword and sorcery stories, then Marcus Nispel’s interpretation will more than satisfy. After witnessing the murder of his parents at the hands of a tyrannical warlord, a young barbarian lad swears revenge. Marcus Nispel directs with much attention to gory detail, while, the new Conan is played by Jason Momoa, another handsome muscle-bound Hollywood hunk. Jason Momoa performs rather well, using the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger style of guttural acting. Meek’s Cutoff From the beginning of this intriguing ‘western’ it is not clear if this group of pioneers have been deliberately separated from the rest of the wagon train, for political reasons, or, if they have been ‘cutoff’ purely by accident. However, whatever the reason, the pioneers now find themselves lost in the vast expanses of the American prairies. As tension grows within their ranks, they capture a lone Red Indian, and, they hope that this savage can lead them to much needed water. Director Kelly Reichardt makes a film which is very slowly paced, but, this lassitude only underlines the pioneers’ predicament. Beginners After his mother’s death, a reticent 38 year-old graphic artist learns that his father, now well into his seventies, has been a closeted ‘gay’ all of his life. The father plans to ‘come out’, and finally accept his sexuality. Meanwhile, the artist has also decided to once more experience emotional relationships, as he becomes attracted to a French actress. At these pivotal stages of their lives, these men are about to begin again. Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer star in this frank and honest movie, and both perform wonderfully, as intelligent men coming to terms with emotional and very sexual issues. Margin Call Starring Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, and Demi Moore, this is a good story about financial intrigues. Though, you have to pay close attention to the dialogue, to fully understand the intricacies of the plot. A financial broker discovers that his company is about to loose trillions of dollars through bad investments, and, after informing the Board of Directors, they decide to sell these bonds before the rest of the stock exchange finds out what they are up to. As the movie progresses, this company can be seen as symbolic for much

Much of the humor was done before in ‘Cars 1’, but, children have short memories, and will probably find this sequel new and exciting. Adults will just find it ho-hum. Personally, I don’t think that the humor really stretches to a repeat. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Episode 7, Part 2 I hope you have a good memory, because this movie just starts off where Part 1 finished. There is no re-cap or brief introduction to bring you up to speed. For the first 20 minutes of the movie I was wracking my brains trying to remember what the whole thing was all about. Frankly, I see no reason why Parts 1 and 2 couldn’t have been shown together, but, of course, we all know the rationale behind that! Anyway, I’m glad that this particular film franchise is now finally over, and we won’t have to endure any more. But, then again, don’t be too sure of that. I’m sure the producers will eventually put together some sort of ‘Directors’ Cut’, which will be presented in a nice glossy box, and will be ideal for weekend Harry Potter movie marathons! Terri More teenage angst, as an alienated youth starts wearing pajamas to school, and has to attend regular sessions with the disillusioned student counselor.

30 November - 14 December, 2011


We are sitting between two eclipses as we start this fortnight. The New Moon Eclipse was on the 25th in Sagittarius with Mercury going retrograde the day before. The Full Moon in Gemini Lunar Eclipse, is heralded by the direct motion of Uranus, just a few hours prior. This promises to be an exciting fortnight with the strong insistence on Truth along with the impulse to communicate. Mercury as the ruler of Gemini has turned retrograde and perhaps is reflecting a little too strongly on past actions. The Full Moon will be in a loose trine to both Saturn and Neptune, while Venus and Mars get together in Earth signs, Capricorn and Virgo. It almost feels like Mercury has a rendezvous with the newly direct Uranus and has made it’s way back to give instructions to the stationary Planet and to reconnect with the New Moon degree in Sagittarius. Both in fire signs, they will be looking for action and no doubt we will see an increase of participants in the Occupy Wall Street action around the World. The fire is being fanned and fueled across the Planet through alternate media sources, which are under threat at this time also. There is a certain sense of pressure to speak up for what you believe in, NOW. To let people know where you stand and what you align yourself with. Positive cross-cultural exchanges are taking place around the World as the barriers between languages, religions and ideals dissolve through the awareness of our Unity Consciousness and shared humanity. FULL MOON 18 Gemini 11 December 10, 2011 10:37 p.m.


0361 - 8234788 Study, Work & Migrate to Australia


ARIES: Mercury continues in Virgo and makes a lovely trine to Venus in Capricorn around the Full Moon. You will be feeling rather amorous and yet in a very grounded and practical way. Sensuality will lend to the tactile yet reserved expression. A great time to get close to the individuals in your life and sort out any finer details with regard to the relationship, the past, work and a myriad of other topics. A general realignment across the board is taking place. Uranus moving forward in your sign is an added bonus and you could be feeling pretty feisty and rebellious yourself by the time the Full Moon comes around. It’s really a mixed bag right now.

LIBRA: Saturn in Libra is harmoniously aspected by Neptune in Aquarius and offers an ever deepening connection to your spiritual self, which unites you with everything and everyone else. The former boundaries are dissolving and you see that it is a moment to moment feeling into a situation which allows you to create within the current time frame, rather than placing your assumptions on a past perspective. Relationships take on a new flavor as you get use to this new mode of living. It’s like you are learning more and more to live from your heart rather than from your mind and it’s projections and expectations.

TAURUS: Venus in Capricorn has you very practically oriented with regard to the significant other this fortnight. You will be laying foundations for yourselves and the days, months and possibly years to come. Jupiter also moves direct again this month in your sign and will bring a fresh momentum to change, with the possibility of a very new direction around Christmas. Although you are more the stable type, this change will set you in good stead for the years to come. A seven year cycle is just beginning. As with all new beginnings, some letting go is necessary and unavoidable. You will release much from these past seven years now.

SCORPIO: The fortnight starts with the tail end of a trine between Pluto and Mars. Your Planetary ruler is being prodded and provoked to make those necessary adjustments now, without delay. This configuration will take place three times over the next months, so no need to worry as this is a transformation that is going to take a little time. Pluto in Capricorn is reminding us about time and the consequences of valuing it incorrectly. Again this is a bit of a methodical and slow moving period of your life, so get use to doing things over and over again. Remember this is how we learnt the negative in the first place. Some things come radically and some over time.

GEMINI: A lot of attention is being focused on this Full Moon Eclipse in your sign this fortnight. What it means for you is an individualized experience with reference to your birth chart. Generally speaking however, the focus is on communicating your Truth and what you stand for. Sun and Mercury in your polar opposite sign of Sagittarius are moving the boundaries of your existence and expanding them in a way you’ve not experienced before. There will be a lot going on in your head, although the irony is that the more you allow this process the easier it will be for you. The less you try to do things and understand the easier it will be for you.

SAGITTARIUS: You are a little like a race horse at the starting gate right now. The tendency is to move towards chaos although there is enough of a steadying principle to keep you grounded and with your feet firmly on the ground. You could be a way-shower in this current round of Truth exposure. Just as the Sun moves from your sign this month, Jupiter your ruler finally goes direct, so that right on Christmas you’ll be feeling all systems go again. By that time you will be knowing exactly what it is that you want and just how to go about getting it. For now, enjoy the fun and excitement of this Birthday month and create as much joy as you can.

CANCER: Slightly challenging times as the Moon settles into these current eclipses. You could be feeling stretched beyond your normal capacity in many areas of your life. It’s always interesting to see which houses the New and Full Moon fall into, on your chart. Your focus though is centered on your mental capacity and learning potential. A connection to your Higher Self or Higher Mind is paramount now as the possibility for confusion and procrastination is high. The upside is that you will finally get to see what it is that your life is truly all about. More and more you will feel that you are aligned with the Truth of why you incarnated at this time.

CAPRICORN: What do Saturn and Neptune have in common? At the moment they are both in air signs and dancing with each other. Saturn was once the designated ruler of Aquarius and that’s where Neptune it right now, so I think you actually understand all the so called new sciences, which in effect are just ancient technology and perhaps there-in lies the link. Although you appear to be very grounded in the practical reality you are nonetheless comfortable hovering between realities and dimensions and possibly your skill and ability to manifest in the material world is due in part to this. Anyhow all bodes well in your world.

Training your staff to cook for you and your family.

LEO: If you were to be an expression of the true and authentic self, how would that look? In what ways do you still hold yourself back? There is just so much Love to be expressed and it is bursting forth from your physical heart right now. This time truly emphasizes the magnificence of your being. You are a gift to the Universe and this is your teaching on this Planet. When you claim your Galactic Heritage you put in place the vibratory frequencies that allow others to align themselves with their magnificence also. What an awesome time to be alive on the Planet and this is exactly the reason you came.

AQUARIUS: I find it interesting that so many signs are impacting by this trine between Saturn in Libra and Neptune in Aquarius. Particularly the last three and you could do well to read them all. There is such a sweetness and tenderness opening within the human heart as we are pushed to evolve. (Spontaneous Evolution - Bruce Lipton) It feels like a seed that was planted a long time ago is now sprouting within all hearts. Those which were planted in fertile soil always appear to grow faster, so it is to your interest to harness and cultivate your thoughts now, as these are the nourishment for your seed and will determine its flowering.

Is this something you might be interested in ? For information call 0361-736645 or 0816 470 8884

VIRGO: You have the opportunity to heal some previously unresolved issues. It’s not that I’m asking you to focus your attention on looking for them, for they will present themselves in Divine Timing. To be willing and to allow this process to take place is all that is required of you, apart from placing yourself right smack dab in the center of the vortex of infinite intelligence. This is easier then you perceive. Just pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start thinking happy and uplifting thoughts. The Planets are actually colluding with you right now, so this is more easy than ever before. Stay as much as possible in a state of appreciation and gratitude.

PISCES: So as the flowering of the Human Heart continues, true Divinity acts as the spark which ignites the potential of the individual. The days of independence are now metamorphosing into interdependence, where we see clearly that we are cells of the this Planet and the more we work in harmony and alignment with each other the more health there is to the organism called Earth. Diseased cells are being surrounded by healthy strong ones and encouraged to heal themselves or they simply die off naturally. All of this happens with a state of Grace and with much ease if we allow this innate process to follow its own intelligence and we get out of the way.

Almost everyone loves the deep, complex flavor of chocolate and Bali now produces some of the world’s best. Cacao in Bali is a treasure. Protected from industrial cocoa production trends that raise cacao trees with high yields, disease resistance and high fat content at the cost of flavor, the cacao found throughout the Island of the Gods is some of the rarest and most magical. Today, thanks to the vision of Ben Ripple and Frederick Schilling of Big Tree Farms, Bali’s wonderful cacao is about to step onto the world stage as a solo act. With 700 cocoa farmers now certified organic to international standards and another 700 close to certification, this will be South-East Asia’s first organic premium chocolate.

The first Criollo cacao beans from Soconusco, Mexico, were highly esteemed by the Spanish and the trees were disseminated by them first to the Philippines and then to Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka and around Southeast Asia. Java became the first region outside the New World that began producing these heritage beans commercially and as these genetics acclimated to their new surroundings they took on their own terroire. Today these beans are called ‘Light Breaking Javas’ for the fact that they still exhibit the famed Criollo low pigmentation when the cacao beans are cut in half. Unfortunately this cacao has largely disappeared in Java over the past 10 years as more and more of the plantations which once guarded this historic treasure have chosen profit over prestige and moved to replant with the same high-yield, disease-resistant varieties that already make up the clonal mosaic of the intensive Sulawesi crop.

The alchemy art of growing cacao and making artisan chocolate is a craft known only to a few It’s a long journey from the cacao pod to the chocolate bar. Big Tree’s journey to bring Bali’s cacao farmers out of the shadows has taken over seven years. Ben Ripple, Big Tree Farms’ founder and Co-CEO, began working with Balinese cacao farmers in the mountains of west Bali in 2004. He focused first on simply rehabilitating tree stocks and teaching basic fermentation of the cacao, a process integral to the development of flavor in the ultimate finished chocolate. Later he worked on value addition through rustic coldprocessing of the beans into cocoa butter and powder. In 2008, a USAID program to enhance the volume and quality of Indonesia’s non-plantation cocoa partnered with Big Tree Farms. This helped make it possible to train 2000 farmers from Bali in best practices and double their income from cacao. All of these farmers now hold international standard organic certification or will soon do so. The program taught farmers to increase yield and manage pests through the skills of pruning, composting and fertilizing, frequent harvests and keeping the ground under the trees clear. The results in Bali were excellent and as yields began to rise, farmers learned to graft from their highest-producing ‘super’ trees and to add value to their crops by fermenting the beans themselves. Indonesia is currently the world’s third largest producer of cacao beans. Most of the crop, a hybridized variety grown intensively on 1.5 million hectares of in Sulawesi (accounting for over 90% of production) is exported as a bulk commodity to the grinding industry, the segment of the chocolate industry responsible for producing cacao butter and powder. In Java, Sumatra (Aceh), Flores and Bali, smallholders grow cacao in far more sustainable, diversified ‘food forests’ along with many other crops. From its early focus on cacao bean processing, Big Tree Farms began to collect an understanding of the alchemy that turns cacao into chocolate when Frederick Schilling joined the family as Ben’s partner. Schilling, who had previously been the founder of Dagoba Chocolate, had been almost single-handedly responsible for the growth of organic chocolate in the US. The writing was on the wall for Indonesia’s first organic chocolate factory. There are three varieties of cocoa beans: Forestero, Criollo and a cross between the two called Trinitario. Originally Forestero beans came from the Amazon and these genetics are responsible for the lion’s share of chocolate sold today. Hershey’s, Cadbury’s, Lindt and other commercial producers use Forestero beans as the basis for their chocolate. Criollo beans were first discovered in Mexico. “These cocoa beans were different from the dark purple beans of the Amazon because they were low in pigment,” explains Ben. “They exhibited extremely fine flavors (think of wine tastings) when roasted and prepared for chocolate. Trinitario beans first entered the world scene when these original Foresteros Amazon trees were planted along with the original Criollo trees on the island of Trinidad. The result was a natural cross which exhibited varying degrees of the unique characteristics of both parents.”

Luckily, Dutch planters over a hundred years ago had recognized Bali as a perfect growing climate for the heirloom cacao and tried moving the Light Breaking cacao beans onto Bali soil. Unluckily for the Dutch, however, Balinese wanted no part in the plantation game. So these incredible genetics simply spread across western Bali, casually planted in sustainably managed smallholder plots along with coffee and other crops, and soon became part of the typical tropical landscape. In the absence of commercial plantations, the trees spread informally and evolved into a unique, high quality cocoa. In some areas of Bali, it is still possible to find pure strains of Criollo cacao; beautiful porcelain beans that may be some of the closest cousins remaining to the original Soconusco genetics. The alchemy art of growing cacao and making artisan chocolate is a craft known only to a few. The craft requires the use of either obscure and very expensive equipment or antique machinery located and pulled from dusty chocolate museum basements. Thankfully for Big Tree, besides being a devoted chocolatier, Frederick was also addicted to the pursuit of original artisan chocolate processing equipment. This led the team to one of their initial purchases, a 6.5 ton granite melangeur (grinder) from Switzerland built in 1932. Talk about authentic. The massive grinder now has pride of place in Big Tree Farms’ new chocolate factory. All artisan chocolate products (whether they be liquor, couverture or finished chocolate) start with best quality cacao beans removed from extremely fresh pods and fermented for a few days to enhance the flavor ‘pre-cursors’ of the ultimate chocolate. The next steps depend on what is going to be produced at Big Tree Farms. The vision of small-scale value addition has led the team to produce their own raw (cold-processed) golden cacao butter and powder as well as finished liquor (ground refined cacao bean paste) and chocolate itself.

The new headquarters will house the administration of Big Tree Farms’ archipelago-wide activities, processing, warehousing, an event centre, commercial kitchen and retail showroom. The facility also features a full chocolate-inspired café for those who want to sample raw cacao and other organic superfood treats. “The facility is truly a remarkable feat in architectural design and execution, not only from the perspective of esthetic beauty, but also in the science of engineering and the celebration of traditional architecture and construction,” Ben points out. “With this facility, we hope to break the box of what has been perceived as ‘not possible’ in regards to sustainable design. Our goal is to show the world that a large-scale commercial building can be built from bamboo -- a highly sustainable material -- and that it can be beautiful, efficient and practical in terms of a commercial production facility, supportive of a creative and inspiring work environment for our employees and a welcoming space for all our visitors to come see the magic that is Big Tree Farms.” Big Tree Farms and chocolate factory will be fully operational in February 2012, accepting guests between the hours of 0930 and 1530 Monday to Friday. The retail space and commercial kitchen will be open by mid-2012 and will offer classes, special dinners and community events. For information, please contact info@ big

One of the more unique aspects of production at Big Tree Farms is the focus on raw Cacao to meet the demands of a growing international raw food market. This niche market seeks superfood ingredients processed at minimal temperatures to ensure that minerals, aminos and enzymes, all sensitive to heat processing, are preserved. Big Tree Farms is already renowned for making some of the world’s highest integrity raw cacao products, coconut palm sugar and raw cashews. Its new headquarters and production centre in Sibang near Ubud offers the public a fascinating glimpse into the full process of making both fine chocolate and raw chocolate, as well as the opportunity to taste other world-class products from the Island of the Gods. The soaring bamboo headquarters -- one of largest bamboo structures on earth -- brings together cutting-edge food technology with indigenous foods and products. The facility will be a welcome addition to Bali as a center for community meetings, educational training and sustainable design and intention.

Chickens in the Garden

‘I’m just curios to find out if backyard chickens and a garden can peacefully co-exist? If you raise them free-range how do you keep them from gobbling up your garden as well as the weeds and bugs? Thanks! - Peter’

an eye on them to make sure that they don’t start to decimate your plants. With such a healthy natural diet, the eggs from your chickens will have yolks that will be packed full of nutrients. You cannot buy eggs in the shop as good as these!

If you allow chickens to free range in your garden they will dig up the whole thing and eat everything in it. You have to fence the chickens or fence the garden, or they will eat your strawberries and tomatoes before you do. No matter where you put them, they going to destroy the grass and if they escape you could see your vegetable garden gone in a just a few hours! So keep the chickens away from the vegetables or the vegetables away from the chickens! They also like almost any kind of seed, so if you have self seeding flowers they’ll run at them.

Chickens are the perfect animal for a permaculture system as they recycle waste and the manure they produce makes an excellent addition to the soil or can be used as a compost activator. To prepare a garden bed you can fence in a plot and let the chickens in to run for a few hours per day for a few weeks or months prior to planting. The chickens will gradually destroy the weeds and pests, fertilise, turn and prepare the soil for planting, much in the same way as a tractor ploughs and prepares the soil on a farm. When the garden bed is ready keep the chickens out, and start planting, move the chickens on to the next plot to be prepared. You can just cycle them around the garden like this forever free range and happy!

You need to choose a separate area suitable for the chickens to range on. You can alternate these areas and improve all of your garden beds over time. You will need to provide your chickens with shade and shelter from sun and rain. There are many ways to house chickens, but a permanent pen with alternating runs is the preferred method. Chickens need access to a plot to run or range on, so that they can get out and stretch their legs, forage and dust bath. Man has been domesticating chickens since the dawn of time. A flock of backyard chickens can be a valuable workforce in your garden. The chickens will provide beneficial fertilizer for your garden, and can also help to control pests whilst also providing you with eggs. There is nothing better than eating real fresh organic eggs from your own chickens. These days many of us are getting sick of mass produced tasteless supermarket food. Chickens will give you pleasure just as pets (chickens have distinct personalities). You can easily keep up to five chickens. They don’t need as much space as you might think, and you don’t need to keep a rooster. Just provide them with shelter, shade, food and fresh water. They’ll make great pets, work in the garden and also provide fresh eggs. Chickens can be very destructive if let loose amongst your favorite plants. The trick is to get them to work with you and not against you. With a little bit of planning, you can let your chickens into your garden beds between crops. Chickens will happily eat snails and other pests that may live in your garden, they consume green waste, from the kitchen and the garden. When you prune vegetables, pick up dropped or damaged fruit, or trim leaves and peel vegetables, just throw it all into the chicken run. They will be delighted. Make sure if you allow your chickens into the vegetable garden that you allow only one or two at a time carefully supervised, only into a well established garden, and never when the garden is newly planted with seedlings, that would just be a disaster! I would keep them away from plants you eat directly from the garden like salad plants or herbs but taller plants like corn or tomatoes would not be a problem as long as the fruit is out of reach. They’ll scratch around and eat any weeds or pests they find. They will turn the soil over, dig up all sorts of underground larva, and deposit little parcels of manure here there. Chickens will help control fruit fly by cleaning up the fallen fruit and maggots. The chickens will also feed on insects that breed up around the compost bins and sheltered areas of the garden. It beats digging and spraying with pesticides! Remember just keep

Young trees will need to be protected to prevent the chickens from scratching around the roots and from defoliating the lower branches. A chicken wire tree barrier will keep young plants safe, once the tree is established the wire can be removed.These birds must have a pen to return to at night. The chicken pen if not fully enclosed will need wire fences with sunken barriers all the way around. This will keep the chickens in and the dogs out. Alternatively you could use a moveable enclosure if you have a well fenced yard. Your chickens won’t eat everything that gets thrown into their run, but what’s left will be turned over and will break down into rich dark compost. Dead leaves can be added to your chicken house as a bedding material. If you don’t have enough leaves you can use straw or wood chips. Woodchip mulch is a cheaper option, and when it needs replacing it can be put into the compost.

A bedding material with a high carbon content helps to neutralize the high nitrogen content of the manure and eliminate odors. They also need a perch to roost on at night and nesting boxes for laying eggs. Once this has been provided the chickens are ready to be introduced to their new home. There are also plants that can be grown that provide benefits to the chickens. Wormwood repels lice and expels intestinal worms if eaten, and Tansy or Tanacetum vulgare is known to repel fleas. Place around the exterior of the pen the chickens will brush past the foliage and peck at the leaves without destroying them. For chickens to lay well they need to be fed well. In addition to kitchen scraps and free range foraging they need to be given grain every day. Soaking the grain in water the day before makes it easier to digest and they will absorb more nutrition. They will also need access to fresh water daily and dispensers need to be filled weekly. Remember to get the chickens working with you and not against, as they are the experts in all matters pertaining to soil preparation!

THE HEART OF BALI A Special Place for Orphans By Michele Cempaka

C/Ho/G-9 March 11

Many people who come to Bali think that this beautiful island is truly blessed, offering visitors stunning palm fringed beaches and luxury five star resorts with some of the finest cuisine in Asia. What they don’t know, is that beyond the veneer they will discover that Bali has thousands of disadvantaged children and orphans living in appalling conditions and suffering from malnutrition, sickness and neglect. In 2005, Yayasan Anak Anak Bali (also known as Bali Kids) was formerly established. The goal was to provide medical services and health education for disadvantaged children throughout the island, by utilizing a mobile medical clinic, as well as providing an in-house clinic for children requiring extended treatment. The project proved to be an outstanding success. Bali Kids was also required by the government to obtain an orphanage license. This would allow children from the orphanage to stay in the clinic for extended periods. The orphanage license stipulated that Bali Kids had to accept a minimum of twenty children in full time care. Thus, Bali Kids expanded their vision to include an orphanage which would provide food, housing and healthcare, as well as support the education of orphaned children. The facility which is based in Abianbase, Mengwi, consists of two separate buildings: one is allocated for the orphanage and the other is a clinic with a small office for administration. Bali Kids isn’t based on any specific religion and thus, welcomes all indigent children who are in need of a home or financial assistance. Bali Kids prefers to accept children with no parents or from single parent families. Children with a medical issue are given first priority for full time care, provided they are from a poor background. In rare cases, Bali Kids will accept children who have both parents but it is unlikely. In all cases they prefer to support children to stay within their family. Even if the child has lost both parents, it is better for the child to remain with their extended family rather than in an orphanage. Orphanages are not an ideal environment for any child, no matter how well run. Sadly however, there remains a need for orphanages in Indonesia. There are children in full time care at Bali Kids who have no other choice. Those who are in full time care enjoy extra activities such as computer study, English classes, Balinese dance, Hip Hop classes, surfing lessons and jewelry making. “Before we decide to place a child in our orphanage, we visit the home to see what their living situation is like,” says Komang Kosala, accountant for Bali Kids. This enables Bali Kids to determine whether the child is really in need of assistance. There are currently 35 children between the ages of three and a half and 17 years old. Children admitted to the orphanage must be under 18 years old. All children at the orphanage receive free education, accommodation and food. Presently, Bali Bundar (Holland) is sponsoring the total school costs for children, so the yayasan only needs money to cover medical, clothing, food

and general operation costs. Approximately Rp800.000 a month is needed per child. Some academically gifted children have received scholarships provided by sponsors to attend high schools overseas. At this time, Bali Kids has one boy and two girls studying in Australia and living with host families. In addition, Bali Kids has four overseas dentists who volunteer on a regular basis to help kids and three doctors from abroad who have volunteered their services to help kids with medical checkups, health education and hygiene. They also have a special health education program which they bring to many local schools. The nurses teach the children about the importance of basic hygiene, as many children experience skin infections and fevers in the villages. They also learn about nutrition for better health. In 2009, Bali Kids began assisting children with HIV. They are currently helping four children by giving them good medication and regular medical checkups so that the children can live healthier and happier lives. There is currently 20 dedicated staff at Bali Kids consisting of doctors, nurses, coordinators, administrators and those who care for the children and Brenton Whittaker, who is the Project Coordinator. The total operation costs for the yayasan are approximately 90 million rupiah a month. The reason for this is primarily due to the high cost of medical and dental care given to the children. ‘Medical treatment for children suffering cancer, hepatitus, HIV and other serious illnesses can cost up to Rp1.000.000 per month, per child. Sometimes the yayasan gets sponsors who will cover the salaries of the staff doctors and nurses, but this isn’t always ongoing. “Our goal is to ensure that all children who leave our orphanage will be successful in their lives and find good jobs so that they can help their families and themselves,” says Komang. In the future, Bali Kids would like to be able to offer their services to abused children. They plan to create a call center for children who have been abused or bullied, so that they can call in for help. For more information about Bali Kids or to make a donation, please visit: or email: Bali Kids works together with Global Development Groups in Australia so your donation is tax deductible when made through their website. Their wish list includes: Indonesian picture books, boys summer clothing for ages 4 – 17, second hand lap top computers and funds to help create a new Outreach Center for teenagers over 18 years old who still require holistic care to complete their studies and move into the workforce.

“Renovation Ramblings” Last issue we talked about tired buildings and how to identify why some buildings feel like a pole dancer on a Sunday morning. So you are contemplating taking over a building or perhaps your existing dwelling is as interesting as a 3 day old roadkill. Your mind turns to renovation. The first thing you might consider is what you want to achieve and why. For most people it is just a matter of wanting to freshen up their existing living space but for others such as hoteliers or restaurateurs it is a matter of business survival. For these people the building is the single most important asset they have, after “location, location, location” (tourism hotels don’t do very well in Somalia do they?) for such businesses the condition and presentation of their buildings is one of their more important considerations. Successful hospitality entrepreneurs include building decoration, furnishing and maintenance as an essential part of their regular budget expenditure. As we said last issue well organised hotels carry out renovation as an ongoing process. For others renovation is a means of increasing the value of a property and the opportunity to make significant gains by realising untapped potential. There are a few people around that have the gift of being able to see which properties have potential and knowing which don’t. As the old adage goes “you can’t make a silk purse out of a warthog’s aural appendage”. If you are thinking about renovation you might also consider this as an opportunity to make your building work better for you. Perhaps this is the time to reorganise the rooms, move the entrance, add a floor or take advantage of that breeze that annoyingly hits a windowless wall. It may even be a time to consider the quality of construction of your building and bring it up to a standard that will allow you to sleep easily at night. With so much building going on in Bali there is a shortage of good labour that know what they are doing. With some rather questionable professional skills displayed by some of the people who work in construction (and learned their basic skills selling fluffy toys at traffic lights) and with a preponderance of people throwing up buildings as quickly and cheaply as possible just to make some quick folding stuff you may have found that the main structural strength of your nice new building is, in fact, the coat of paint rather than the masonry beneath. A building renovation gives you the opportunity to sort problems out and improve your building. The important thing is to clearly identify the things that let the building down such as floor tiles the colour of something the dog left on the pavement. In the article in the previous issue of BA in which I talked about “tired buildings” I mentioned a process of turning that “feeling” about a building into an understanding of what is wrong and what may be required to bring about the change you are looking for. A way of identifying a list of the things that need to be renovated. You need to find the weak spots. Have you noticed that restaurants are often judged by the standard and cleanliness of the toilets. In the same way the standard of a building is often judged by the lowest standard item in a room. Use cheap floor tiles and this will set the standard for the whole of the room or building. Of course some things will be easy to address while others will not. For example the overall shape of the building might be wrong and this might not be easy to resolve. I remember a woman with a bad roofline (there’s nothing worse than a woman with a bad roofline). Whatever she did she could not escape the fact that her house was a dog’s breakfast of modifications made over many years by enthusiastic members of the Legian Botchalism Club. The botchalists had really gone to town on this one with a roof structure held up by chop sticks, cigarette paper and chewing gum (they couldn’t afford duct tape). The result was as attractive as a hyena in a wig and, with nothing sound to work from, problem piled on top of problem. The only sensible remedy was demolition and a fresh start. Sadly the financial considerations were too great and the house has remained a work in endless progress with a touch of too hard basket thrown in for good luck. Renovation usually requires a lot more thought and care than a new build. Making the most of and working with an existing building is often a lot harder than building from

scratch. It often requires technical understanding of the building and/or some creative thinking to work out what can be done. Having said that it is amazing what can be achieved and how even a coat of the right colour of paint can turn a slum into a palace. Many people find themselves taking over a building with a plan to modify and renovate the building to suit their purposes. In such cases it is a good idea to seek advice before committing yourself. Have the building assessed first, develop some ideas and get renovations costed out in the planning stages. The starting point is to look at a building and see what can and can’t be done. Removing a wall, changing windows and doors around or adding to the building can turn a hovel into a very desirable living space. More ambitious projects may involve serious reconstruction work but you will have to work within the structural limitations of the existing building. Don’t forget the terrible lesson of Padang where a two storey hotel had four extra floors added without strengthening the structure, an earthquake hit and rather a lot of people died.

Take note of where the structural columns and beams are and this will tell you the parts you cannot remove or change and, by omission, tell you what you can remove. From this you can develop a vision of how the building might be remodelled. I was once asked to assess a single storey building with many rooms in it. The aim was to remove most of the walls and create a large open working area. When we checked the roof structure it was found that much of the roof was resting on the many walls through the building and the walls could only be removed if the roof was rebuilt with a frame strong enough to span the whole building, this was a prohibitively expensive task which stopped the project. For mere mortals the task of creating a sound concept may not be as easy as it sounds and, if you are looking for something particularly special, you might consider engaging an architect. A good architect can give you ideas you never even thought you hadn’t even thought of.

C/BM/I-30 Nov 11

Developing the ideas for a renovation also needs to be done with a close eye on cost, a golden rule is not to overcapitalise on the building, you probably won’t get it back. The best solutions are usually simple but well thought out requiring minimal work but giving maximum gain. I’ll drift off on a tangent here. Have you noticed how people come to Bali and, in spite of having culinary skills they learned from the back of a packet of Bird’s Eye frozen peas, they have a dream in their head and for some reason they think that running a bar or restaurant is easy. They take over a restaurant that isn’t doing too well and spend a fortune renovating the building only to find when it opens that no one is interested. The fact is that restaurants live and die on their food, success is not determined by whether or not they have gold plated toilet seats. Regardless of what a restaurant review may say those few restaurants with lots of people in have got a formula that works, most are run by hardworking professionals who really know their stuff and have worked for years to beat a lot of competition in this overcrowded island and even more overcrowded industry. Our newly arrived hopefuls have failed to realise this and in the mean time they have launched into an extensive renovation, overcapitalised on the building and lost their shirts, their life savings and their sanity.

C/BM/I-05 Oct. 11

It is a sad thing to see that repeats itself time after time. Bali is truly an island of dreams. Conversely I recently worked with an enterprising young woman from Singapore who took over a fairly drab nondescript house. She knew exactly what she was doing and had access to her own network of friends - highly stressed business people who want a quiet hideaway to unwind. She has a good eye and together we worked out how to turn this building around and furnish it with taste. With some clever thinking and at very reasonable cost she ended up with a very presentable villa that is proving popular amongst her friends. A rewarding task and good for the soul.

MONEY MATTERS by Colin Bloodworth

BOOM OR BUST – A TALE OF TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS? It appears that Indonesia is enjoying a record-breaking spree in consumer confidence. Capital is pouring into the country and a fledgling budget airline has placed a record order with Boeing for 230 planes. (Hope they find somewhere to park them.) People in bustling Bali seem to think everything is fine. Meanwhile global stock markets are tumbling as investors rush for the doors fearing Armageddon in face of the multiple financial and social problems confronting the western world.

WHAT PERSONAL ACTION SHOULD WE BE TAKING? If your livelihood depends on tourism it would be wise to keep one eye on what is happening across the world. Maybe now is not a good time to be investing heavily in expansion. People tend to do this when times are good. By the time a project is finished demand has weakened and there is a lot of spare capacity. We have seen this so many times in the case of office space for example in Jakarta. There is rarely a balance; it is usually boom or bust!

WHY ARE GLOBAL STOCK MARKETS TUMBLING? Basically there are three major factors spooking the markets: 1. The failure of both the US and European governments to come to grips with and find a lasting solution to their massive debt problems, problems which have been caused by years of irresponsible spending way beyond their means. 2. The frightening levels of unemployment in the US and Europe. A stubborn 9% in the US. A million young people unemployed in the UK and a staggering 20% of the population in Spain. Figures that threaten the fabric of society and social stability. 3. The slowdown in China which has been the power house in Asia in recent years and which helped Asia avoid the worst effects of the financial meltdown and credit crunch in 2008. What is of particular concern is that these problems are not going to go away in a hurry. We could be facing years of low growth (which means higher unemployment because the job markets will not be able to absorb a growing population) and volatile financial markets. SO WHY IS INDONESIA BOOMING? There are many factors. There has been relative stability under SBY and while corruption is still rampant in certain sectors there has been a significant effort to weed out many of the culprits. The government and police have also done a sterling job in tracking down and prosecuting the terrorists who once threatened the stability of the country and discouraged investment and tourism. On the subject of tourism Bali has enjoyed an unprecedented boom to the point where its success is starting to have an impact on the very qualities that brought fame to the island. Much of Indonesia’s growth has been driven by domestic demand. The country barely noticed the impact of the financial meltdown in the west because it does not rely excessively on export markets. WILL INDONESIA ESCAPE THE NEXT CRISIS? Many believe that 2012 will see a global recession from which no country will escape. Time will tell whether Indonesia can maintain the present momentum of growth. Will tourists keep coming to Bali? There may be fewer from the US and Europe if people have to tighten their belts and are afraid of losing their jobs. Thomas Cook in London announced only days ago that its holiday business had fallen off dramatically and this led to a steep fall in the value of its shares. However, if cheap flights continue to be available the cost of travelling to Bali from Australia and Asian countries should still make the trip affordable especially when you compare the value for money you can get in Bali compared to Australia or even Singapore.

Where personal finance is concerned now is not the time to sit on your hands. When faced with adverse markets and uncertainties many people just freeze, hoping the bad things will go away and the good times will return. A guaranteed recipe for failure. Should you let all your money sit in the bank and wait for opportunities? In the best case scenario you are going to see the value of your money shrink as inflation reduces its value daily. In the worst case scenario we could see a major banking crisis and you could lose all your money. OK, governments back deposits with guarantees but you may have a long and uncertain wait. Even depositors in the safety of the Isle of Man had to struggle to get their deposits back when Icelandic banks collapsed.

C/BT/I-30 Nov 11

So should you take all your money out of the bank and invest in stock markets or property? Those options could also prove disastrous if markets turned very sour. SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER? There is no single asset that can be guaranteed to see you through both good times or bad. Certainly every asset class has its day and if you choose the right asset at the right time you could strike it rich. But if you get it wrong you can lose everything. The only sensible strategy is to diversify. That means having a sensible spread of cash, currencies, stocks, bonds, commodities, property and alternative investments. Yes, alternative investments since the very crisis that brought financial institutions to their knees has also provided shrewd and knowledgeable investors with opportunities to earn high returns if they have disposable cash that they can lock away for two or more years. Examples include funding for farmers, student accommodation funds, investing directly in trees, factoring (providing cash flow to businesses), funding real estate developments and litigation funding. Almost all of these investments will produce double digit returns with minimal or manageable risk. The only proviso is that your money has to remain invested for a certain time. If you are likely to need your money at short notice these are not the investments for you. That is what the banks are for. It is possible that fears of recession are unfounded and we could see an unexpected and miraculous recovery next year. It has happened before. So we don’t want to be caught out by this scenario either. By holding a diverse portfolio you will be ready to cope with a variety of situations. But be prepared to adjust, adapt and innovate. Burying your head in the sand is not a viable option! Colin Bloodworth has worked as a financial adviser in Indonesia since 1992 and is now Director of PPI Indonesia, based in Jakarta. He visits Bali regularly and can be contacted for advice at or or 021 3004 8024.

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

Stop Premature Aging! C/He/I-20 April 11

Aging is a physiological process which is not necessary related to how old in years you are. Your chronological age is the age taken from the year of your birth, however this is not a good indicator of how old you are biologically. Premature aging of your brain, heart, liver, immune system, and other organs and glands can occur at any age and depends upon many factors. Of course genetics play some part, but I believe this is only a small factor in determining how fast you truly are aging. There are far more important factors in my opinion than genetics.

In order the check the levels of inflammation in your body you need to have blood tests for CRP and Homocysteine. Elevated levels of homocysteine have been associated with increased risks of heart disease, stroke, blood clots and even alzheimer’s disease. CRP is the best marker of inflammation in your body so by knowing what your levels are you will be able to keep an eye out for increasing inflammation before it reaches a dangerously high level. To remove inflammation from your body start by performing a complete whole body detoxification in order to remove unwanted bacteria, viruses, worms, parasites, heavy metals, and other toxins which all lead to increased inflammation. C/He/I-30 Nov 11

The exact causes of premature aging are not totally clear, however factors that are known to play a role are listed below: 1. Toxicity – when cellular toxicity builds up, cells are damaged leading to disease and premature aging. This includes external and internal (cellular) toxins or waste products. This is in my opinion a significant cause of premature aging, disease and also early death. 2. Poor Cellular Nutrition – your cells require a specific list of nutrients to function well, and failure to provide these will lead to illness and premature aging. 3. Low Hormone Levels – your all-important hormones such as: human growth hormone (HGH), thyroid hormones, cortisol (adrenal hormone), estrogen, progesterone, testosterone DHEA, and even insulin, are critical for every function in your body, and if they drop too much, you will age fast. 4. Inflammation – there is no doubt that inflammation is a major cause of all the most common diseases including heart disease, cancer, auto-immune disease, diabetes and more. Cholesterol is NOT the cause of heart disease as previously thought so you can forget about taking those dangerous cholesterol lowering drugs. Inflammation is the key – make sure you reduce it! 5. Free Radical Damage - by-products of normal cellular metabolism, free radicals are highly unstable molecules and can cause damage to cellular components and to DNA. Allowing them to wreak havoc within your cells is a sure fire way of aging fast. 6. Stress – many diseases are now directly linked to chronic or acute stress. Stress directly affects your nervous and immune systems which impact on every function of your body. I have no doubt that stress ages you fast and leads to disease and premature death. 7. Physical Injuries – if they are not healed rapidly, injuries can lead to ongoing inflammation and poor health and therefore rapid aging. How To Prevent Premature Aging You are no doubt by now curious to know what exactly you can do to defy the aging process and to keep on looking and feeling young, healthy and vibrant as you age. Considering the list of causes of premature aging above, let us now take a look at the most effective methods for counteracting these and of increasing your chances of maintaining your youthfulness. 1. Remove Toxicity From Your Body – if toxicity plays a major role in premature aging then it is obvious that you should detoxify your body regularly in order to keep it clean and healthy and disease free. By keeping the environment within and around your cells and organs completely clean of toxicity, your body has the ability to then repair and renew almost indefinitely. Alexis Carell (Nobel Prize winner) proved this in 1912 by keeping alive chicken heart cells in a dish in his laboratory by regularly replacing the tissue culture medium. These heart cells would have kept on surviving almost indefinitely but were allowed to expire after 34 years. I believe the same could happen to all of the cells in our body: keep them healthy by making sue their environment is completely clean and toxin free and then they have the potential to live almost indefinitely. Detoxifying your body (blood, lymph, organs, tissues & colon) on a regular basis is the only way to do this, coupled with reducing your toxin exposure. 2. Reduce Inflammation – this is the major cause of heart disease (not cholesterol as previously believed), and heart disease is the most common cause of early aging and death, hence you really need to get on top of this early in order to stay young and healthy.

3. Reduce Free Radical Damage – it is known that without sufficient antioxidants your cells will be easily damaged by free radicals which are a by-product of normal metabolism. Antioxidants act by scavenging or chewing up these dangerous molecules before they can lead to cellular damage, disease and premature aging. Glutathione is your most powerful cellular antioxidant and this helps to recycle all the other antioxidants such vitamins C and E. Alpha lipoic acid is also a potent antioxidant and it has the added advantage that it is both water and fat soluble, hence it can cross over into your tissues much easier (including your brain). A blood test can determine your levels glutathione as well as your total antioxidant status – I highly recommend that you have these tests performed so you know if you have enough antioxidants in your body in order to protect yourself from these dangerous free radicals that will age you fast. If you are lacking antioxidants, I would then suggest you supplement with vitamins C and E, and also have weekly IV infusions of glutathione and alpha lipoic acid. 4. Boost Hormone Levels – having your hormones tested using saliva and blood testing is critical as it will then allow you to see if you are low in any one or more hormones. If you are low, then by using natural bio-identical hormones in the right doses will dramatically halt your aging process and will most certainly stop premature aging. This is one very important step you must take if you are serious about slowing or even stopping the aging process. If you have any questions or feedback on the above article you can email me at

I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying.

the art of body Bikram Yoga. Amazing Recently, I discovered Bikram Yoga at Jiwa Yoga and got hooked after the first class. Jiwa Yoga is Indonesia’s first and only authentic Bikram studio and is a beautiful facility with excellent teachers. Whether you want to lose weight, become more flexible or simply want to maintain a healthy body, you have to try this!

C/He/G-30 Nov. 11

Bikram Yoga is named after its founder - Bikram Choudhury, who studied yoga with Bishnu Ghosh, brother of Paramahansa Yogananda. It is a series of 26 poses performed in a room with a temperature of around 41 degrees. Each yoga pose is usually performed twice and held for a certain period of time. A yoga session starts from standing postures, then backbends, forward bends, and twists. It also includes two pranayama (breathing) exercises to begin and finish the class.

Why practice Yoga in a heated room? • • • •

Heat is used in Bikram Yoga in order to allow you to go deeper and safer into a Yoga pose. Your body becomes more flexible in the heat and since most poses used in Bikram are physically challenging, heat allows you to get into a pose that you never imagined you could do. It also eliminates the risk of injuries and promotes sweating and cardiovascular benefits. Each pose stretches and strengthens your muscles, joints, and ligaments and, at the same time release the toxins and work on your internal organs like the glands and the nervous system.

Some people are often discouraged to practice of Yoga by thinking that they are not flexible enough. Yoga is not about being flexible, but about strengthening your body and your spine in all directions with the goal of creating a union between the body, mind and spirit.

What are the Benefits of Bikram Yoga? • • • • •

Bikram Yoga is designed to “scientifically” warm and stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the order in which they should be stretched. The practice of Bikram Yoga promotes the cleansing of the body and release of toxins and utmost flexibility. It can also reduce stress and increase blood circulation. The practice of Bikram Yoga can also help you lose weight and develop strong, lean muscles. Anyone can practice Bikram Yoga even people with chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, and thyroid disorders may benefit in doing the yoga poses by reducing symptoms, and also one of the best ways to prevent any ailments by keeping the body healthy.

is now enjoying renewed popularity in Europe and Asia especially as a treatment for fat and cellulite loss. It can be used even as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for areas of fat such as upper thighs, abdomen or neck. The ARC treatment involves multiple tiny injections into the fat layer of a proven fat-dissolving substance. The injections, using the tiniest needles, are given in a grid pattern so that for an area such as the upper thigh about 20 tiny injections are given. Treatments are repeated every week. The average number of treatments required is 6. This may vary especially if there is a larger area to treat. This is not an overall weight loss treatment. It is a localised fat/ cellulite treatment program. Results can be expected after 2 or 3 treatments at which time you will notice smoother, firmer skin.

Alcohol – Teenagers & Girls I was quite disturbed recently when I overheard a group of teens recounting the drinking conquests of a female friend. “She can drink the guys under the table! She does half a bottle of vodka before she even leaves the house!” Something to be proud of? I think not. This group could not be more than 16 or 17 years of age. Alcohol is widely used by young people. Around 90 per cent of Australian teenagers over the age of 14 years have tried alcohol at least once. ‘Binge drinking’, drink/driving and unsafe sex can all result from the misuse of alcohol. Alcohol is tolerated as a socially acceptable drug, yet it is responsible for most drug-related deaths in the teenage population. Alcohol is also associated with a variety of serious health risks. It’s difficult to prevent teenagers from experimenting with alcohol, but parents can encourage sensible drinking habits. The safest level of drinking for teenagers is no drinking, especially for young people under 15 years of age. If older teenagers do drink, parents can minimize the risks by providing adult supervision and encouraging consumption within the adult guideline for low-risk drinking (two standard drinks in any one day). Alcohol – the risks Irresponsible use of alcohol can lead to: • ‘Binge drinking’ or drinking too much on a single occasion • Drink/driving • Unsafe sex • Impaired brain development • Injury or death. Binge or heavy drinking ‘Binge drinking’ is the term commonly used to describe drinking heavily over a short period of time with the intention of becoming intoxicated. This can be very harmful to a person’s health and wellbeing. As well as increasing the risk of health problems, this can lead young people to take risks and put themselves in dangerous situations. Common effects of ‘binge’ episodes include: • Hangovers • Headaches • Nausea and vomiting • Shakiness. ‘Binge drinking’ means different things to different people. New Australian recommendations released in 2009 talk about drinking too much ‘on a single occasion of drinking’ rather than ‘binge drinking’, but the harm that can be done to the drinker and their community are essentially the same. Drinking too much ‘on a single occasion of drinking’ means drinking significantly more than the recommended level of four standard drinks on any one occasion. Just over 10 per cent of Australian teenagers drink more than this every week. ‘Schoolies’ week Finishing high school (‘schoolies week’) is often linked to episodes of very high levels of ‘single-session’ drinking and/or deliberately drinking to intoxication. Over 70 per cent of male school leavers and 60 per cent of females report getting drunk on most or all days or nights of their ‘schoolies week’. Look out Bali here we come! Drink/driving Car accidents are a leading cause of death for teenagers. In 2006–07, one out of four drivers or riders killed or injured in road accidents in Victoria were over the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC). In Bali there are no drink/driving restrictions and no alcohol testing stations to deter this behavoiur. Alcohol and sex Alcohol impairs judgement. Teenagers are more likely to engage in unsafe sexual practices when they have been drinking. Other associated risks include: • Date rape • Sexual intercourse without a condom • Exposure to sexually transmissible infections (STIs) • Possible pregnancy. Impaired brain development Drinking alcohol can affect how the brain develops in young adults under the age of 25. Young people under 15 years of age are particularly at risk. Teenage brains are still developing and the areas of the brain that are undergoing the most dramatic changes during the teenage years are the frontal lobe and hippocampus. These areas are associated with motivation, impulse control and addiction. Alcohol is a neurotoxin, which means it can poison the brain. One of the effects of excessive alcohol use is that it interferes with vitamin B absorption; this prevents the brain from working properly. Long-term drinking above the recommended levels may lead to a range of disorders, collectively known as alcohol-related brain damage. Symptoms can include learning and memory problems and difficulties with balance.

Serious injury or death Young people are more likely to take risks when drinking. Alcohol is a significant factor in a range of risky situations, including: • Fighting or brawling • Drowning • Drug overdose • Self-harm or suicide. Alcohol and other drugs Taking alcohol with other drugs that also reduce activity in the brain, such as heroin and benzodiazepines, can be particularly risky. Increased risky situations can result. The combination of alcohol and drugs (including cannabis) can lead to increased risk taking. It can also make it difficult to drive or carry out other activities, with the potential to harm others as well as the drinker. Misuse of alcohol is often accompanied by misuse of other drugs.

Parental role modeling Studies have shown that the most influential role models for children are their parents. Children learn by imitation, so it is important that parents demonstrate sensible drinking behaviors. Suggestions include: • Drink moderately or not at all. • Don’t drink every time you socialize. • Never drink/drive. Teaching responsible drinking Parents can’t prevent their teenagers from experimenting with alcohol, but they can encourage sensible drinking habits. Suggestions include: • Offer good role modeling. • Start teaching your child about alcohol from an early age. • Explain the downside of heavy drinking, such as vomiting, head spins, passing out and hangovers. • Educate your child on the links between drinking and dangerous behavior, such as unsafe sex. • Teach your child sensible tactics such as standard drink recommendations, ‘pacing’ themselves, alternating alcohol drinks with non-alcoholic beverages and not drinking on an empty stomach. • Talk about the dangers of drink driving and plan alternatives together, such as public transport, designated drivers or calling home. • Encourage your child to talk about the dangers of alcohol with their friends, so they can come up with ways to look out for each other.

A note on girls While it’s true that men are more likely to drink alcohol and more likely to drink greater amounts, women have a higher risk of developing problems from alcohol consumption. When a woman drinks, the alcohol in her bloodstream typically reaches a higher level than a man’s even if both are drinking the same amount. This is because women’s bodies generally have less water than men’s bodies. Because alcohol mixes with body water, a given amount of alcohol is less diluted in a woman’s body than in a man’s. Women become more impaired by alcohol’s effects and are more susceptible to alcohol–related organ damage. That is, women develop damage at lower levels of consumption over a shorter period of time. Other factors that can prevent alcohol abuse According to Australian research, there are many important factors that help reduce the likelihood of a young person abusing alcohol. As well as good parental role modeling, these factors include: • A loving, supportive home life • Educational programs in schools on the use and misuse of alcohol • Development of personal, social, academic and employment skills • A healthy lifestyle, such as regular exercise and a love of sports • Restrictions on alcohol advertising • Avoiding the use of scare tactics, which can backfire and increase alcohol use among teenagers.

Say What? Question: I am 23 and in a bad relationship. I am also physically unable to care for myself at times because I have a brain injury that occasionally affects my communication and fine motor skills. I am able to speak normally, but can I never seem to say the words that I am thinking. (That alone is enough to drive anybody crazy.) I do not have mental or behavioral deficits, but I need to have someone with me almost all the time in case I have a seizure. Because of this, I have been living with my boyfriend for nearly a year. At first we were just dating, but now he has become increasingly controlling and verbally abusive. He has also been sexually abusive. I have a plan to leave, but because of all the additional complications, it is going to take me a couple of months to pull it off. The reason I’m writing is because my best friend is 7 months pregnant, and she wants me to go see her and help her with a few things. She lives about an hour away by taxi, and I asked my boyfriend if I could go. He did not forbid me to go, but he tried to make me feel guilty, and I am unsure if I should go. I feel as if I am a little more in control of the situation now that I have realized he is abusive. He doesn’t seem to have noticed any change in my behavior, so I expect that when I stand up to him when I am leaving, I will have the advantage of surprise. At least, that’s the way I want it to work. Otherwise, if he realizes what I am thinking, he will begin to manipulate me differently. I do not want to risk getting stuck staying here with his empty promises to change. I also want to avoid confrontation if at all possible. Do you think that going to see my friend (which my boyfriend obviously doesn’t want me to do) would give him an indication that I am starting to break away from the relationship? Sorry I took up so much space for such a little question! I thought the background might make a difference in the answer. I would be grateful for any advice. Thanks! Dr. ZZ: From what you say, you are already breaking away. Whether your boyfriend notices it or not doesn’t have to affect your decisions. If you have a chance to get away for a while, it would probably be good for you. You will enjoy yourself, build more confidence, and have an opportunity to witness your boyfriend’s reactions. As far as his changing tactics, you seem to be ready for that. Because you are on guard, it is apt to be difficult for him to get away with new schemes. Your current uncertainty is most likely due to guilt. Guilt is a fairly common response for victims of abuse. In order to break away, you need to manage the guilt. A little practice cannot hurt.

Question: I have a quirk about people touching me. I don’t like it when I am being introduced to a friend’s friend or relative, and they hug me. I find it strange. My reaction is to pull away. I have also come to find out that I am not very friendly. My boyfriend, who is the only person I let touch me, thinks I am mean. I feel bad because it upsets him. I honestly don’t know how to be any other way. Just for the record, I had an OK childhood. I wasn’t raped or anything. What do you think I should do? Dr. ZZ: People vary in their preference for casual personal contact. Some people are huggers; some feel socially obligated to hug but don’t commit to it physically; others are cheek kissers or double cheek kissers; the list goes on. There is nothing wrong with preferring not to be hugged by strangers. Socially acceptable behavior, or socially expected casual contact, also varies from place to place and culture to culture. Any advice I might give you on this subject would have to depend on what it is you want. If you want to be socially accommodating and overcome this quirk, then -- like anything else – a change in behavior requires practice and getting used to it. Slowly increase your personal contact with your close friends, thinking of a hug as a sign of affection that tells people, “You mean a lot to me. I’m happy to see you.” Remembering that may help you stand there, let another person hug you, and then give them a little hug in return. The more times you do it, the easier it becomes. On the other hand, if you (not your boyfriend) are happy the way you are and simply prefer to maintain your space, then you have every right not to be a hugger, a kisser, or a toucher if you don’t want to be. Simply arm yourself with a quick-drawn handshake and a kind smile, leading introductions and departures whenever possible to guide the situation and get your message across. Overall, decisions have to be on your own terms. You do not have to be a doormat for anyone else’s opinion of you. Whatever you do needs to be for your own good, in your own perception, and in what you can honestly handle.

Reviews of English language books on Indonesia


Menagerie 7 by Lontar

Bali Advertiser

But it’s not always easy to be gay in Indonesia. In countless anecdotes, the book chronicles the many challenges that “people like us” face. On the one hand, Indonesian gay men and women enjoy a much greater protection of their rights than their counterparts do in other countries, particularly in the Middle East. On the other hand, there is a pervasive public ignorance and prejudice towards sexual minorities in this country. At the mosque or church members belonging to sexual minorities are said to be an abomination. In Indonesian tabloids and magazines, feature stories about LGBT delight in titillation and sensationalism. In newspaper advice columns, prayer or psychiatric assistance instead of tolerance and acceptance are usually the options offered to problems affecting sexual minorities. On TV, grotesque stereotypes of gay men and transvestites take up a disproportionate amount of airtime. In the police and military, homosexuality is grounds for dismissal. A persistent theme through the stories are women who have been cruelly treated by men turning their attention to women who are more sensitive and sympathetic. The main characters, often practicing Muslim and Christians and living either openly gay or in the closet, are troubled by whether their God accepts or spurns their sexual preferences is another recurrent thread. Yet another sort of conflict emerges in “A Slice of Night,” a homosexual man’s struggle between the strength and excitement of his male lover and the gentleness and sweetness of a woman whose “strange wild femininity” was not enough to finally arouse him. Except for a few dreamy slow moving tales of existential despair, which take a few pages to gain traction, these tightly written, fast-paced and suspenseful stories give an inside look at the whole spectrum of gay life. There’s a lot of variety. Stories deal with gay men or women seducing straights, about a male-identified woman’s unrequited love for a village joged dancer, about the sexually active life of a married man who is gay. The editorial selection process was fearless and any lifestyle was fair game for inclusion. “Forbidden Pleasures” is narrated by a meth addict who sells his body for drugs and money. The sexual orientation of the writers is not disclosed nor was it a question that was asked when putting the collection together. The editor claims that a writer’s sexuality is irrelevant and that it should be the skill and force of his or her writing that must be judged. But who else but gays are able to write knowledgeably and sensitively about other gays? “Because” by Putri Kartini consists of short accounts of how and why lesbian women first came out. “My Father’s Eyes,” set against the dramatic upheavals of Suharto’s downfall in

1998, is about a gay man who picks up a musician playing for pennies on the crowed buses of Jakarta. “Conversation on a Plane” tells of the deceit of a gay lover. Village of Men takes place in a fantasy world where cruising for men is accepted. Prose is often interspersed with verse and one story consists of just an exchange of text messages between a gay husband and his secret gay lover. I liked best the stories that obviously are about real people living real events, that have a tactile feel of a tepid city back lane, or a crowded train or café. And culturally interesting and authentic stories such as “The Prima Donna” by Santo in which the hero becomes a gemblak, a younger man whose duty it was to dance the jaranan – the rattan hobby-horse dance – in reog performances and to occasionally fulfill his male leader’s sexual urges. I also found fascinating and informative the illustrated diatribe by Uji Handoko and Decky Leos against the notorious Anti-Pornography Law passed in 2008 whose various articles explicitly forbid kissing, nudity or disrobing in public, sex with animals and dead people, and characterizes homosexuality and lesbianism as sexual deviations. Cartoons dripping with irony, ridicule and sarcasm accompany the piece. The editor refers to the writers and protagonists in the stories as “people like us” but they share many of the conflicts and frustrations that heterosexuals also experience in their relationships. This makes the stories more credible and personally relevant to not just gay readers but to anyone of whatever sexual persuasion. The stories do not advocate homosexuality, do not try to convert, just try to tell the truth. One uncomfortable story is about an older man seducing a young man for all the wrong reasons. It takes bravery for an individual to live his or her life as someone who is markedly different from the heterosexual majority. Take for example the intimate black and white photo essay by Adi Wahono which chronicles a day in the life of Pak Achmad Hidayat. A devout Muslim working as a long-serving member on the administrative staff of a junior high school, for the past 10 years Pak Yayat has worked in the evenings as a transvestite entertainer. This sweet portrait, along with the many of the book’s other defiant, anguishing and self-liberating tales, show that the Indonesian archipelago is as multi-sexual as it is multi-ethnic. Pak Yayat’s kind of bravery in not bowing to unfair and uncompromising societal demands can be found in many of the book’s sympathetic and avowedly queer characters whose experiences and tensions of being gay in straight society make for suspenseful and hard-hitting reading.

This book comprises a collection of 20 stories about Indonesian lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgender persons (LGBT). Taken as a whole, the stories do a superb job of dispelling the persistent but baseless myth that all forms of sexuality and sexual behavior that fall outside the norm of accepted heterosexual behavior are not “Indonesian.”

More Gadgets Galore. In this issue I have 16 really great tips and hints for you Android phone users. Try them and see if they don’t help you and make your phone more enjoyable and easier to use. Enjoy. ANDROID TIPS These are really helpful, but they all might not work on Android versions of your phone: 1. Speed up (+secure) your internet and save battery life - Y5 is a battery saver app that automatically connects to known WIFI locations. If there are no known spots, it turns off your WIFI and saves battery. With congested mobile internet connections, most providers are throttling your speed when you go over. Connecting over WIFI is the only way to speed-up your browsing. Y5 also makes sure you don’t connect to unauthorized WIFI connections. 2. Make the most of your space by using widgets-dynamic programs that operate right on your home screen. Simply hold your finger on any open space, and then select Widgets from the pop-up menu. Widgets come in a huge variety of sizes and functions, so search the Android Market to find what works for you. 3. Prefer not to be bothered by a sound every time an e-mail arrives? Head into Gmail’s Settings menu and set its ringtone to Silent. You’ll still see new-message alerts in the notification panel at the top of your screen, and you can always pull the panel down to get detailed information. You can configure text messaging and other alert-generating apps the same way. 4. Set up one-touch dialing for the people you call the most. Hold your finger on an open space and select Shortcuts. Then, touch Direct dial and pick the person from your contact list. If one-touch texting is what you crave, use the Direct message option instead. 5. To drop your favorite Web pages onto your home screen, long-press on any site in your browser’s book marks and then select the Add shortcut to home option. 6. Try using folders to keep your home screen organized. Long-press on a blank space and select Folders to create one. You can then drag and drop frequently used contacts, apps, or other shortcuts into it to cut down on clutter. To rename a folder, press and hold the folder’s title bar while it’s open. 7. Need to cut and paste text? Long-press on any text input area. If you’re on a Web page, tap the Menu key and use the Select text option. 8. Activate the Android Power Strip The single most important feature in Android 2.1 is its built-in power strip widget. Here, you’re able to quickly disconnect all the phone’s batterydestroying features, like Wi-Fi, Blue tooth and the Great Batter Killer that is GPS. Long-press on the screen and install it via the widgets category.


9. Android call screening If you’re a paranoid callscreener, Android is there for you. Open up the Contacts listing of the person you’re currently avoiding, then select Menu > Options. From here you’re able to ping all incoming calls from this person directly to voicemail. Give people the brush off with Android. 10. Add your alarm clock to your task killer A classic mistake, this. We’re constantly being told of the (debatable) importance of using a task manager to maximise Android battery life, and if you want to go down that route you’re welcome. However, when killing all your tasks to save battery life, remember that your alarm clock is a task in it self - kill that and you’ll wake up in a panic at 10.15am tomorrow morning.

11. Organize things into folders While Apple may have recently made quite a big deal about letting iOS users organize things into folders, Android’s been doing that for ages. Fancy a quick Home screen shortcut to your starred favorite contacts? Long-press the Home screen and make it so. 12. Rename Android folders And, once you’ve done that, to customize things to perfection it’s possible to rename folders. Simply open the folder, then long-press on its name in the top bar to bring up the Top Secret renaming field. 13. Set up your keyboard launch shortcuts One of the reasons many people still love their QWERTY keyboards is Google’s inclusion of the reliable old keyboard shortcut system in Android. The phone has a completely customiz able collection of app launcher shortcuts, which are found under Settings > Applications > Quick Launch. 14. Download more Android live wallpapers One thing that makes Android 2.1 a little more swish and exciting than the rather dull earlier versions is its support for Live Wallpapers - the animating image format that brings your Home screen to life. There’s a negligible battery life hit for doing so, but in return you get a phone that looks cool. Which is what life’s all about, right? Search the Android Market for Live Wallpaper - there are loads.

15. Easy zoom A teeny little feature, this, but one that’s super-useful if you’re using all five of your Home screens - or a custom user interface that offers even more. Tapping the dots beside the dock at the bottom of the screen brings up a mini thumbnail list of all Home screens, allowing you to get from Screen 1 to Screen 5 without wearing a groove into your screen surface. 16. Check the date Possibly one of the tiniest undocumented features is the date-checking facility. Press the Notification bar at the top left of the screen. It tells you what the date is. Go on, try it. It will. Go here for these and more Android Tips and Hints: master_google_android_40_tips_and_tricks.html and

Local News ASEAN Leaders Sign Bali Concord III On Thursday, November 17, leaders of the 10 Association of Southeast Nations signed the Bali Concord III accord, the road map outlining strategies to strengthen the ASEAN community’s three pillars in security, the economy, and in the social-cultural field. The declaration also mentions details on how ASEAN member countries could bolster cooperation in conflict resolution, fight transnational crimes, fight corruption, and strive towards nuclear disarmament. As part of the group’s goal to become an integrated economic community by 2015, the declaration also calls for the adoption of region wide production standards, a distribution system for commodities, increased openness, technological progress, and energy diversification, reported the Jakarta Globe. Among social-cultural issues were: natural disaster relief and prevention, climate change, health, education, and culture. Additional agreements concluded in Bali also addressed the establishment of a coordinating center for humanitarian relief in the management of disasters (AHA Center) and another agreement for solidarity in the defense and promotion of ASEAN cultural diversity. Opening the ASEAN Summit, President Yudhoyono, this year’s chair of ASEAN, said that “Bali has a special historic significance in ASEAN cooperation, because it is here that a number of important agreements have been made towards the growth of ASEAN.” In 1976, Bali witnessed the birth of the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (TAC), also known as Concord I, where member countries agreed that among

ASEAN nations, each will not use force but will seek peaceful solutions in resolving conflicts. In 2003, the island of Bali again witnessed the signing of Bali Concord II, when ASEAN countries resolved to build a regional community based on the three pillars of: politics, the economy, and in the social-cultural field. Bali Concord II was further developed into the ASEAN Charter, strengthening ASEAN as a rule-based organization, said President Yudhoyono. At this 19th ASEAN Summit, Bali Concord III was signed by the 10 heads of state/government. They were: Prime Minister Hun Sen of Cambodia, Sultan Hasanal Bolkiah of Brunei Darussalam, Prime Minister Thongsing Thammavong of Laos, President Thein Sein of Myanmar, Prime Minister Dato Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak of Malaysia, President Benigno Aquino III of the Philippines, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra of Thailand, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dun of Vietnam, and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. According to 2010 ASEAN data, the 10 ASEAN countries, comprising Cambodia, Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam together count a total population of 598.5 million people or 8.8 percent of the world’s total population. The region has an average per capita income of US$3,092.50 and an average economic growth rate of 7.4 percent. (November 10th 2011)

At Least 750 Orangutans Killed & Tortured in a Year in Kalimantan Villagers living on the Indonesian side of Borneo have killed at least 750 endangered orangutans during a yearlong period, some to protect crops from being raided and others for their meat, a new survey shows. Such practices, never before quantified, are now believed to pose a more serious threat to the existence of the red apes than previously thought, Erik Meijaard, the main author of the report that appeared in the journal PLoSOne, said on Monday (14/11). Indonesia - which is home to 90 percent of the orangutans left in the wild - was blanketed with plush rain forests less than 50 years ago, but half those trees have since been cleared in the rush to supply the world with timber, pulp, paper and, more recently, palm oil. As a result, most of the remaining 50,000 to 60,000 apes live in scattered, degraded forests, putting them in frequent, and often deadly, conflict with humans. “But our surveys also indicate that killing of orangutans is happening deep inside forested areas, where orangutans are hunted just like any other species,” Meijaard said. “This may be an uncomfortable truth, but not one that we can ignore any longer.” The Nature Conservancy and 19 other private organizations, including the WWF & the Association of Indonesian Primate Experts and Observers, carried out the survey to get a better understanding of orangutan killings and their underlying causes. They interviewed 6,983 people in 687 villages in three provinces of Kalimantan -the Indonesian side of Borneo, which also is shared with Malaysia and Brunei - between April 2008 and September 2009. Figures from the interviews were extrapolated to the target population of men 15 years and older, since only 11 women reported killing orangutans. This indicated that at least 750 apes had been killed during the previous year. Neil Makinuddin, program manager of The Nature Conservancy, said they were surprised how many respondents reported killing and then eating orangutans - just over half. Some of them were consumed after being killed for entering crops or because people were afraid of the animals, the study showed. Others were hunted outright for their meat. The authors were quick to stress, however, that the people who admitted to killing orangutans said they had only done so once or twice over the course of their lives. “Orangutans are not part of people’s day-to-day diet,” said Meijaard, a senior adviser for the People and Nature Consulting International. Forestry Ministry spokesman Ahmad Fauzi Masyhud said his office had not yet received the report, which he described as “bombastic.” “We have to recheck whether it is true or not,” he said. “But frankly, I doubt it.” Meijaard said it was time to face up to the facts. “We used robust scientific methods to assess the social dimensions of orangutan conservation,” he said. “Unless we assume that most of the survey respondents lied, we have to accept the hunting issue as an uncomfortable truth that needs to be addressed if we want to save the orangutan.” He said he’d seen far too many orangutan skulls, skins and chopped off hands, and heard too many firsthand accounts of people having killed or eaten orangutans, to believe it isn’t happening.

Police have also questioned a researcher who uncovered the torture and killing of orangutans at a palm oil plantation in Muara Kaman, East Kalimantan. Yaya Rayadin, a researcher from Mulawarman University in Samarinda, the provincial capital, said on Wednesday (16/11) that the questioning took place at the headquarters of the Kutai Kartanegara district police on Monday. “They asked me about the bones of an orangutan that were taken to my lab for analysis,” Yaya said. The bones, he added, had been discovered by locals at a plantation in Puan Cepak, Muara Kaman district. “I told them that according to forensic examinations, the bones belonged to an adult orangutan and that it died from unnatural causes,” he said. “The bones had marks from sharp weapons.” Yaya said he had handed the bones over to the Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) for evidence purposes. This is thought to be the first time the police have questioned anyone in relation to the killing of the protected animals The shocking allegations were first made public in September, though police at the time said they needed more evidence before a formal investigation could be launched. “We need evidence. Can anyone show us the location of the killing, who did it?” Kutai Kartanegara Police Chief Adj. Sr. Comr. I Gusti Harryarsama told RCTI recently. “If there are graves, we can exhume the bodies and take photos.” The TV station has aired chilling images of people torturing and killing the primates. It also showed the license plate number of a motorcycle that was used by one of the alleged killers. Yaya said people in the area had been killing orangutans since 2008. “The forests are the natural habitat of orangutans, including forests that have been converted into palm oil plantations,” the researcher said. “However, they [orangutans] adapt to changes very well and they survive by observing and learning from the environment around them. The only food available is palm so they eat it.” One orangutan could eat fruit from up to 30 to 40 palm trees a day, he said. “Therefore, plantation firms consider them pests that must be controlled to prevent losses.” Meanwhile, RCTI interviewed a former plantation worker who claimed that plantation firms offered rewards for anyone who captured orangutans dead or alive. “The order was to capture orangutans and monkeys, and bring them to the office,” the anonymous source said. “Anyone, as long as they worked there, who caught one [orangutan] and brought it to the office would be paid. “But they also had special hunters. As for the hunters, they just shot them. So any of us who brought three orangutans to the office, after they were photographed, we didn’t have to wait, within a week we would be paid Rp 3 million [$333].” Captured orangutans would be caged, bludgeoned to death and buried, the source said. According to an interview-based study carried out by 19 non-governmental organizations there are an estimated 750 orangutans killed in Indonesian Borneo per year. (November 16th 2011)

Paris Hilton Does it For the Kids Paris Hilton, the 30-year-old millionaire and hotel heiress, who has been in Bali for the last week stirring up sentiment wherever she goes, was out showing her humanitarian side again yesterday. Not for the local fauna, but apparently this time, two Bali orphanages. She met one group of orphaned kids in the gardens of the resort where she’s staying in Seminyak where the kids appeared to enjoy the chance to share some time in the limelight. She later encouraged her fans to donate to the orphanage Yayasan Kasih Peduli Anak via twitter, where she stated that ‘the orphans of Bali need your help. Make a difference. Change a child’s life.’ (Donation info (November 16th 2011) Bridge Collapses And Man Swept Away in Denpasar Flood A 29-year old man has been swept away by floodwaters in the Jl. Pulau Biak area of Denpasar, when a nearby river burst its banks following heavy rain on Tuesday (8/11). According to Putu Anom Agustina of the Bali Disaster Centre, the man named Alvin was swept away when the bridge he was walking on collapsed. The residents of Jl. Pulau Biak stated that the area regularly floods after rain, but this time was the worst one ever, adding that the bridge (built in 1993) collapsed at around 10pm. Meanwhile Agustina mentioned that the heavy rain had caused damage to over 200 houses around in the Denpasar area, with floodwaters reaching up to more than a meter. There has been no official data released yet regarding the cost of the flooding. (November 10th 2011) President Yudhoyono Receives UN Award President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono received “Global Champion of Disaster Risk Reduction” award from the United Nations on Saturday (19/11). “On behalf of Indonesian people, I am very honored to receive this award,” President Yudhoyono said when the award was presented to him by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in a ceremony at Bali International Convention Center (BICC) in Nusa Dua, Bali. The Indonesian head of state said the Global Champion of Disaster Risk Reduction award was as in recognition of the determination and hard work of all Indonesians in responding to the challenges of natural disasters. According to the president, Indonesia was the most vulnerable country to natural disasters, and therefore coping with disasters has become deeply implanted in the national mindset. After receiving the award from the UN chief, President Yudhoyono asserted that Indonesia would continually strive to minimize the impact of any disaster. The president expressed hope that Indonesia would continue to do its best and to develop cooperation with the United Nations. The award should have been presented to President Yudhoyono in the Global Platform for Disaster Reduction in Geneva, Switzerland, on May 10, 2011, but the head of state was absent and represented by National Agency for Disaster Management (BNPB) Chief Syamsul Maarif. (November 19th 2011) A Move to make Buildings Over 15 Meters Legal Several members of legislative council of Bali have made a push to change the rule on building heights, which currently only allows structures to be built no higher than 15 meters. The members claimed that the reason they agreed to change this legislation was to reduce the change of land-use affecting the island in recent years, namely, from rice fields into residential and tourism facilities. Denpasar Mayor, Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra, has rejected the idea. He said that the existing rule, which was created by his father, the now-deceased I.B. Mantra, the Governor of Bali from 1978-1988, fits the philosophy of Bali development called Tri Hita Karana. “If they want to change it, they have to do a comprehensive study. The Bali development philosophy, Tri Hita Karana, should be maintained,” said Rai Mantra. “The development concept does not have to follow what other cities are doing. Like Singapore for example, which is quite happy to have skyscrapers. The 15 meter policy here in Bali is already implemented thorough analysis and studies to oversee the preservation of Bali’s intrinsic nature.” I Wayan Darsa, a legislative member of the Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) of Denpasar, stated that he thought that there was a hidden agenda behind big investors wanting to change the 15m policy. “Our ancestors have already made a commitment to keep the nature of Bali for strategic reasons, so Bali remains consistent and true to its culture,” said Darsa (November 17th 2011)

Obama Announces Trade Deals at Bali Summit President Barack Obama prepared Thursday (17/11) to be the first U.S. president to take part in a summit of East Asian nations. Timed to his visit in Indonesia, the White House announced the sale of Boeing 737s and General Electric engines to Indonesia, Boeing 777s to Singapore and Sikorsky helicopters to Brunei. Obama officials estimated the moves would support 127,000 American jobs. Obama’s nine-day trip has focused on both expanding economic ties with the soaring Asia-Pacific market and boosting the U.S. military posture in the region. He arrived in Bali on Thursday (17/11) after stops in Hawaii and Australia. For Obama, the visit will mark a homecoming to the country where he lived for four years as a boy after his mother married an Indonesian man and moved them to Jakarta. Obama visited Jakarta last year and spent time during that visit reflecting on his personal ties to Indonesia. While in Bali, Obama aimed to expand commercial ties and export opportunities with fast-growing Asia, looking for ways to underscore the connection between his foreign travels and U.S. jobs with an election year approaching. Nuclear nonproliferation, disaster relief and maritime security also are U.S. priorities. (November 17th 2011) Australia to give Indonesia ex-RAAF C-130 Hercules Australia will give four ex- RAAF C-130 Hercules from Sydney’s Richmond Air Force Base - worth an estimated $30 million - to Indonesia for humanitarian and disaster relief work. The Hercules aircraft require about $25 million in maintenance to restore them to airworthiness, and were due to be sold on the open market. The Australian Defence Force agreed to give them to the Indonesian military, following a request for more resources to boost disaster relief in the region. “These aircraft are important to the movement of people and equipment and food in times of difficulty,” Ms Gillard said. Under agreements struck yesterday between Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Bali, three high-speed Australian naval vessels will also be deployed to Indonesian waters in a bid to combat people smugglers. Ms Gillard has denied that the provision of intercept boats to Indonesia was an admission her government had failed on border protection policy. The agreements signal a series of new strategic partnerships in what appeared a peace offering to soothe tensions about Australia’s deal to host more US troops on Australian soil (November 21st 2011)

Landslide at Cemetery Uncovers Corpses Twelve bodies were exposed at a graveyard in Kukuh village Tabanan due to erosion caused by the heavy rains on Wednesday (9/11), and it is believed that several more were swept away in the Yeh Ge river which is located on the east side of the cemetery. The scene was first discovered by village official Nyoman Murja at around 7am, while he was passing the cemetery. He was shocked to see a gaping hole where a large amount of soil had been eroded. A second landslide occurred at around 9am, but further damage was minimized with the use of makeshift retaining fences to contain the soil. (November 10th 2011) Two Killed in Jakarta Soccer Stadium Stampede Two people were killed and a young boy was fighting for his life in a coma after a terrifying stampede when thousands of fans jammed a Jakarta stadium for the Southeast Asian Games football final. All 88 000 tickets at the cavernous Gelora Bung Karno stadium had been snapped up for the keenly anticipated showdown on Monday (21/11) night between the hosts and their rivals Malaysia, the visitors taking gold 4-3 on penalties. With the game sold out, thousands of eager supporters gathered outside the stadium hoping to buy from ticket touts, an AFP reporter at the scene said, and when a gate was momentarily opened there was a crush to get in. In the chaos, the bodies of the two men trampled to death - both thought to be Indonesian fans - could not be immediately evacuated, police said. The tragedy followed complaints over poor organization at the multi-sport Southeast Asian Games and there had been calls for calm ahead of the flashpoint football final between arch-rivals Indonesia and Malaysia. “We are saddened by the deaths and it is unfortunate that the game has come to such a point that hooligans and vandals now are spoiling what should be an enjoyable pastime,” the Malaysian football association’s secretary-general Azzuddin Ahmad said. Earlier on Monday, fans had gone on the rampage after the stadium was declared sold out. They burned down a ticket booth and besieged the media centre before they were chased away by riot police. The chef de mission of Myanmar, which will host the next SEA Games in 2013, has criticized organizational standards and said conditions at the opening ceremony in Palembang were also “not safe”. “There were no ushers. The VIP and public entrances at the main stadium in Palembang were the same. It was very confusing after the opening ceremony and not safe,” Naw Tawng told Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper. The run-up to the event, split between Jakarta and the South Sumatra city of Palembang, had been plagued by concerns over unfinished venues and a lack of accommodation and transport.

5.3 Earthquake Rattles Nusa Dua, Summit Not Disturbed An earthquake measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale shook Nusa Dua Bali, on Friday night (18/11) during the ASEAN summit meeting at the Nusa Dua Convention Center. The department of Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) said the quake occurred at around 19:23 pm. The epicenter was at a depth of 10 km, 275 km South West of Nusa Dua, Bali. The tremor did not seem to disturb the ASEAN Summit participants. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) and U.S. President Barack Obama where enjoying dinner at the time of the tremor. (November 19th 2011) Russia Continues Supporting Healthcare Development in Indonesia Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Alexander A Ivanov said his country was ready to initiate or support several healthcare cooperation projects with Indonesia when he was contacted by phone here on Thursday (10/11). “Until now, we have continued to be a supplier of medical equipment and medicines to cure or prevent infectious diseases,” he said on the occasion of the 48th anniversary of the Persahabatan General Hospital in East Jakarta which was built with assistance from the former Soviet Union. Ivanov said Russia and Indonesia had so far been cooperating in the economic field under a scheme which among other things resulted in the holding of a high level meeting in October 2011 between Sergei B Ivanov, deputy chairman of the government of the Russian Federation, and Hatta Radjasa, Indonesia’s coordinating minister for economic affairs. “Currently, Russia and Indonesia are implementing cooperation projects in various sectors, including in healthcare. For example, we helped Indonesia in alleviating the suffering of disaster victims in the Nias Islands several years ago when Russia sent an aero mobile hospital to Gunungsitoli,” he said. Responding to the Russian ambassador’s statements, Indonesian Deputy Health Minister Ali Ghufron Mukti on behalf of the Indonesian people and government expressed thanks to the Russian government for all humanitarian assistance it had extended to Indonesia.

Now in its 6th year the Sanur Village Sports Festival has set many milestones including the first jump for Cash kiteboard competition in 2006, the first Beach Rugby tournament in Indonesia in 2007, and this year was no different with the inaugural Bali Beach Cricket Cup. Other events held over the weekend were the Beach Rugby League, 3 on 3 Basketball and Karate.

Balinese guns from the Tegalalang Tigers, rounding out in third Sanur’s own East Coast Storm and finally the union boys from Canggu Chilli’s.

Bali Triathlon organizers announced that the 2012 edition will be held on Sunday, June 24, 2012. Registration for the sixth running of the BIZNET Bali International Triathlon now open on-line at []. With registration growing each year, the race dubbed the “Triathlon for the Soul” attracted over 700 participants in 2011 in the Olympic Distance event, the shorter sprint distance and the 5 km run. Cricket on the beach??? On a beautiful, but hot Sunday, Bali Sports Foundation held the first Beach Cricket tournament ever held in Bali on the Mertasari Beach in South Sanur. Beach Cricket a variation of the regular game and indoor cricket. Batting in only one direction, and with a solid wicket to allow the ball to bounce. Showing how that quintessential English game of cricket is now well developed in the local schools of Bali (and paradoxically not in the international schools), over a 80 young Balinese players joined in this historic day to try and play cricket on the sand. And it worked…. Under Tournament Director Wayan Samuel, the tournament went off without a hitch and was a success.Together with the help of Denpasar Cricket coach I Wayan Suandi and Denpasar Cricket head Mr Yudha beach cricket is certainly here to stay, with plans for an International tournament next year. Results

Sponsored by Indonesia’s leading fiber optic Internet provider BIZNETNetworks, the race will get underway at early dawn with a swim in Jimbaran Bay, followed by a bicycle race down the Nusa Dua Peninsula, ending with a foot race through the village of Jimbaran. The Olympic distance is comprised of a 1.5-kilometer swim; a 42-kilometer bike race and concludes with a 10 kilometer run. The Sprint Distance course covers a route that is only half that of the Olympic event. MARTIAL ARTS Bali’s Rodney Holt helped Indonesia to a clean sweep of the medals at the 4th Lightning Arnis Singapore Cup, held in Singapore on November 12. With Rodney’s bronze medal, Indonesia took out the top 3 places. Arnis is an indigenous Filipino Martial Art (FMA) that traces its roots to pre-Hispanic Philippines. It is also known as Kali or Escrima.

The 2012 Bali Ocean Swim will be held on Sunday July 8, 2012. Now in its 3rd edition, as in the past events, the swim will start from the Bali Garden Beach Resort & Spa in Kuta and participants will swim across Kuta Beach and back. There will a 10 km swim for the pros and a 1.2 km swim for those wanting a less daunting challenge. All proceeds go to Bali Sports Foundation’s disabled swimming programs with YPAC & Sjaki-Tari-Us.



Next door to the Beach Cricket, the action was in the Beach Rugby League. Played on a smaller field with 5 players per side, the action is fast and fun, and because players are running 30% slower because of the sand, injuries are minimised. In the U12 league, the young boys threw themselves into the fray with enthusiasm and skill belying their tender age, well supported by their parents on the sideline, and with Biosystem’s Mark Campbell running the bar & BBQ like a pro, spectators were well looked after. In the Colts, the 4 Bali Rugby clubs did battle, with the young French Roosters coming out on top, followed by the young

Letters To Bali Advertiser Imagine Dear Sir, I’m writing in response to Dr. ZZ’s most recent “Say What?” article. In the article, she compares Christianity and Buddhism. I feel compelled to write as I can see she has some dangerous misunderstandings of Christianity. In the article the good doctor states that Christianity and Buddhism are very similar. I would like to inform her that Christianity and Buddhism are vastly different, and, in fact, contradict one another, and so cannot both be truth. Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with the one and only and living God. “Religion” is man’s attempt to reach God, whereas Christianity is God reaching man by providing the necessary sacrifice for our sinfulness in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus states that He is “the way, the truth, and the life, and that no one comes to the Father but through Him.” This means that there are not multiple ways to God, and that any “religion” that denies Jesus as the way to God, is teaching lies. Salvation is a free gift from the loving God who desires relationship with each one of us if we will only receive it and believe in Him. It really is wonderfully Good News, and a truly beautiful story of Love from the One who rescues us from death. Thanks for listening. May God bless you as you seek His truth. Thank you, Hera Dr. ZZ’s reply: Thank you for writing on this obviously fascinating topic. Your zealousness for your beliefs is commendable. Because neither politics nor religion is my chosen area of expertise or discussion, however, and because I have already expressed my views on the subject to your chagrin, I have invited Rev. Jack Alexander, an ordained minister and scholar of comparative religions, to respond to this matter. In reply to the opinions you have voiced, Rev. Alexander offers the following: “Your reader may find a broader sense of Christianity in Archbishop Reverend Desmond Tutu’s latest book, God Is Not a Christian. In these writings, Tutu makes the point of divine commonality in comparative religious teachings, the same point to which Dr. ZZ was referring. The book will inform the reader of Christ’s teachings as well as of what Christ himself recognized about comparative religious knowledge when he chose not to buy into the religious dogmas of his time. It is Christ who forewarned modern man not to fall victim to the unloving, sacrifice-focused dogma of organized religion. “Allow me to share some insight regarding the reader’s reaction to Dr. ZZ’s article. Hera claims that ‘Christianity and Buddhism are vastly different, and, in fact, contradict one another,’ that both cannot be truth, is flawed. Basic creative principles commonly coexist all around us all the time. You and your neighbor, for example, are the same in being human, yet the two of you may have beliefs about Christianity that seem absolutely contradictory. This would be true for most religious and for different cultural beliefs. The fact remains constant, however, that you and your neighbor are still human and, unless one of you moves, you are still neighbors -- no matter what details of difference either of you chooses to hold as ‘the only one’ – no matter how much you may proclaim that only one of you can be truth, nor how much you attempt to make the other into something less than what you perceive yourself to be. “Christianity, my friend, is a religion. It is an organized grouping of clergy (teachers) and laypeople (those being taught), occupying an area of space (a church, temple, synagogue, etc.) in order to worship a specific concept of what God is. This, by definition, is an organized religion. When you say, ‘Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with the one and only and living God,’ you are stating a belief, a doctrine of a religious teaching. Although such beliefs are more often than not quoted as absolutes, the only absolute is that in fact there isn’t an absolute -- at least not one that has been put into writing. “Is it not contradictory that the first chapter of Genesis I: verses 24-31 is in complete opposition to the second chapter of Genesis: verses 1-25? And again to Genesis III? These contradictory accounts cannot be true in both directions either. In Genesis I, we are told we were created ‘in the image and likeness of God, male and female collectively. At the end of this sixth day God declared it was very good (i.e., perfect).’ “Then, in the second chapter of Genesis, we find one man (Adam), upon naming all other creations, realized he is without a mate, a companion. This is completely contradictory to the first chapter of Genesis, in which God says: ‘Let us create man in our own image and likeness. . . and God created them male and female God created them.’ “Let us not forget that God is Spirit, and that those who worship God do so through the spirit of truth. This sets us free when we take the inner journey, the journey within. Above all else, God is Love, unconditional love. Being Spirit and unconditional love, God is the absolute truth. Any ‘God’ who has human gender and emotions is not the God of truth. Rather, such a God is an idol made in man’s image and likeness. Teachings that glorify God in human acts of brutality and such glorify the idol.” People wishing to communicate further on this topic or others with Reverend Jack Alexander are invited to contact him at Thanks again for your input.

HECTOR’S Holiday Break The Diary has just spent two weeks enjoying the pleasant ambience of the Nerang River in Queensland. It was, though not in the way Hyacinth Bucket (“It’s ‘Bouquet’”) achieved it, a riparian delight. We were well away from the faux glam glitter of the Gold Coast’s beachside tourist strip and – courtesy of some lovely friends of very long standing who courageously opened their home to Diary and Distaff – enjoyed all manner of domestic comforts. It gave us a chance to catch up with people we haven’t seen for many years (at least six, since we left Queensland for the sybaritic delights of Bali) and to reconnect with what for the Diary is truly home. We also spent a couple of days well inland, on a formerly frequently visited farm, the domicile of other dear friends. It is a place with plentiful cups of tea and long views of beautiful mountains: the sort of landscape that the weather and Bali’s love affair with dysfunctional internal combustion engines so often conspire to deprive you of at home. We drove down into New South Wales to visit another old haunt, Byron Bay, and had a beer and some lunch, but were blown back from the beaches by a stiff northerly half-gale. Ah well, never mind; next time perhaps. We went up to the Gold Coast’s own special “mountain,” Mt Tamborine, a 500-metre high ridge nowadays littered with wineries, and sampled a few vintages. These are mostly from Queensland’s distant Granite Belt which is so high and so cold you actually can grow wine grapes there. We dropped in on a liqueur maker who was doing a roaring trade (the wattle myrtle vodka is a killer –Za vashe zdorovye!). Hector left a note in the visitor’s book. We lunched at a Bavarian restaurant, far too well, and had to take the rest of the afternoon off. Idiots’ Week The peculiar Australian custom of “Schoolies Week” – an annual event during which young people who have just finished senior school go off and have a holiday with their mates – is a pernicious occurrence not only in Bali, where little idiots arrive and do foolish things, but also at the Gold Coast in Queensland. This year’s risk of choice there, among the mindless, was balcony jumping. That’s one way of bringing yourself down quickly from a party high, we suppose.But it was events in Bali that enraged the Diary; events as portrayed of course. A segment on tabloid television’s “current affairs show” ACA related the sad case of some other little idiot who had travelled to Bali to run amuck and had injured his foot in a motorbike accident. The enragement was less because the accident occurred – they do, with depressing regularity, though they mostly involve locals who are of no interest to visiting Aussie tabloid TV teams – than with the fellow’s determined refusal to acknowledge that he had been the author of his own misfortune because he was (a) drunk and (b) stupid. In that regard it was good to see BIMC chief Craig Beveridge on the programme explaining that his establishment sees plenty of such cases. Perhaps some lapsed parents in Australia saw that and took it in. Well, just perhaps: sentience tends to be a genetic thing. Blog for Health High profile conferences and diplomacy are of course vital to the business of managing international relations and bringing assistance to countries and communities that need help (in whatever form) but it is at the lower, less visible, end of the equation that most of the practical work gets done. So it is with the Australian aid agency AusAID’s great Indonesian gig to get bloggers to help increase awareness of HIV/AIDS and of World AIDS Day (December 1). Active bloggers were invited to enter a dynamic online competition themed “HIV and Youth.” The competition called for young Indonesian bloggers to write about their own experiences or opinions on HIV/AIDS. Australia’s ambassador, Greg Moriarty, says of the competition: “Indonesia has one of the fastest growing HIV/AIDS epidemics in South East Asia. We need to do all we can to raise awareness of this disease.” The competition was aimed at tapping into Indonesia’s thriving social media scene – which has 38 million Facebook users and more than 3.2 million bloggers – to expose the country’s browsing community to inspiring and easy to read information about the disease. It was held by AusAID in partnership with Viva News, one of Indonesia’s leading news sites. Submissions closed on November 30. The winning blog entries will be announced on December 20. The top three bloggers will win computers, cameras and high-tech phones. In 2010, Australia’s $100 million Partnership for HIV provided services to 50,000 prisoners, helped 26,000 injecting drug users to gain access to clean needles, methadone maintenance programmes and harm reduction services, and improved access to medicines for people living with HIV. Dream Road Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard was among the squadrons of international political leaders who attended the East Asia Summit in Bali two weeks ago. These jamborees are important – genuinely, they’re not just photo opportunities or occasions for grandstanding as some of the more jaded among us might sometimes think – even if, for most of the population under the flatfooted footprint of the attendant VIP

protection effort, they are chiefly occasions for mass inconvenience. Gillard took the opportunity of the summit to visit the Bali Bombing Memorial in Legian on November 19. She described it as a moving experience. It always is, of course. The Diary visits the memorial at least once a year to read (silently) the 202 names listed. Amid tight security, including roof-top snipers, Gillard placed a wreath at the memorial site and chatted with Australian tourists. She met Governor Made Mangku Pastika, who as Bali’s police chief in 2002 led the investigation into first bombing. But what caused the Diary a particularly dyspeptic sigh was the ABC report that said she then left to return to Nusa Dua “about 20 minutes drive from the memorial.” Yeah, right. That would be about the travel time, if you’re in a high-speed VIP motorcade and everyone else has been shoved rudely out of the way. Great Idea The big bash at the Westin Nusa Dua from November 16-19 included, as is the fashion with modern day international group navel-gazing events, a number of side events and bilateral meetings. These were conducted at the Bali International Convention Centre and at the Westin itself. One of them was a think-in about Women’s Empowerment, hosted by Indonesia’s Ministry of Same and chaired by First Lady Ani Yudhoyono. Now that’s an area where a lot of work is needed. What’s Cooking? Janet DeNeefe, Fragrant Ricist and Festival Founder, is back in print with another little tome on Bali cuisine. Bali: The Food of My Island Home, runs to 272 pages and was published by Pan Macmillan Australia on November 8. It’s always a joy to read publisher’s blurbs. This one invites potential readers to follow Janet on a spice trail through Bali and its rich food culture, with chapters exploring sambals, rice dishes, curries and coconut, street food, ceremonial food, modern offerings and sweets. It notes that each recipe is accompanied by an insight into the local culture, while key Balinese ingredients – such as kencur, candlenuts and shrimp paste – are explained in an extensive glossary. And it says the book is not only a cookbook but also an incredible photographic journey. It sounds like a dream. Perhaps it will feature in 2012’s writers’ and readers’ festival.

Artist in Residence If the Diary ran to an artist in residence, then we should have to choose Leticia Balacek. This is not just because she’s a decorative Argentine, or even because her art is first rate. It has to do with vivacity, verve and vitality. You need all those to properly engage with people. So it was good to hear that more of Balacek’s work is on show at Black Sheep (Jl Drupadi 69, Seminyak). It’s a mix media collection that includes Textures (Life is Paradise – Bangkok; and Transformations - Buenos Aires) and a work she hasn’t shown before, For a Little Bit of Sun, from Berlin, in A4 size. The show runs until Saturday (Dec. 3). Gaya at Ubud is also showing Balacek’s work in an exhibition to celebrate the Mother as the central point of human society. The organisers say the concept was born of the desire to honour and connect to the Mother through creative expression. It’s true that everyone has an individual story that relates to this theme, which has unquestionably created who we are. Works scheduled to appear at Gaya from December 17-24, by various artists in many media, include painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture, drawing, written poetry, video projection, song, spoken word poetry, dance and music. We hear, by the way, that Balacek will be exhibiting in Jakarta next year. Back Home It’s great to have an alternative to Virgin Australia on the Bali-Brisbane route and Air Australia, formerly Strategic, is filling that role very well. The Diary flew both ways with them on the recent trip to the old home town. While the airline is using Airbus A320s on the route there is the little matter of the “technical stop” on the uphill leg – the 320 doesn’t have the range to fly Brisbane-Bali non-stop against the headwinds and lands at Darwin to refuel. The downhill leg is fine. Pushed along by a friendly tailwind the Diary made Brisbane in around five hours and twenty minutes on November 11. The return trip on November 25 was somewhat longer. When Air Australia (then Strategic) commenced its Brisbane-Bali service it was using an Airbus 330 which doesn’t need to drop in on the Northern Territory capital en route. Maybe we’ll see the bigger aircraft back on the route sometime. Air Australia has big plans – and not just for Bali, from where one imagines it should pick up a good proportion of the Bali-originating Brisbane trade. We’ll be back on board.

FOUR FREAKY FOODS Can’t resist this little tummy squirmer. Bali has always attracted alternative life stylers captivated by the idea of living simply and with nature. Highly romantic, lingering imaginings of the Swiss Family Robinson’s functionally primitive home décor would have been vogue back in the day. But now with all those property developers plundering every decent spot they can, “alternative” has only one meaning… muchos choice( i.e. A margarita @ Kudelala or alternatively @ Potato Nose guys??)

So with the south blitzing and blinging its way into its very own concrete rat race, genuinely alternative life stylers are running for the hills, which is where they’ve always felt best - well it’s just so very green after all, and are now developing their own property. One in particular is Taman Petanu Eco Neighbourhood in Ubud. Think you’d like to live in a community that shares the same principles as you? You can!! Well, you can if your principles include permaculture, passive design and green construction amongst MANY MANY other consciously ecological actions.

Shark fishing in Bali By Sandy Rose

The great thing about Bali is that it is even more beautiful under water than it is on land. The island has a range of underwater ecosystems including coral reefs, mangroves, sand slopes and ship wrecks. Divers can be thrilled with sightings of tiny pygmy seahorses and colourful shrimps, or encounter huge manta rays and the enormous Mola mola which is the world’s largest bony fish. Many divers hope to see sharks and Bali has areas where that is possible too.

cleaned the next morning. The shark fishing has been going on for the last 10 years. Fisherman talk of the average size of the sharks getting less each year as the fishing pressure increases.

Shark fishing versus eco-tourism and shark diving in numbers

On a recent trip to Nusa Penida island which is just 17km off Bali’s south east coast I had a great time exploring by motor bike. The sleepy villages and lack of traffic make travel by motorbike a fun way to get around. The huge cliffs and pounding waves on the south of the island contrast with beautiful bays and snorkelling on the west. My early morning walk in Sampalan village turned from a great stroll along the sea front into a horrible experience as I came across a huge pile of dead sharks. On closer inspection I saw the sharks were thresher sharks which are known for their huge tails and elegant swimming when seen by divers. As I walked further I saw pile after pile of sharks and realised there was a serious fishery targeting the threshers. We were able to monitor the catch on 30th September, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of October and each day there were about 80 sharks caught and sent to Kusamba port. The sharks arrive at Sampalan by jukung boat, piled in pick-up trucks or balanced on the back of motorbikes. Parts of the beach were awash with blood, guts and baby sharks. Only to be cleaned by the incoming tide.

Nusa Penida has recently been declared a marine protected area so I decided to collect as much information as possible in the hope to protect the threshers. My girlfriend and I talked to fisherman and the women working to gut the sharks as well as a group of porters who transport them onto the ferry to Bali. As we watched the activity we saw that nearly all the sharks were female and pregnant. The sharks were gutted on the beach and the fully formed baby sharks were thrown away on the sand along with the guts. The fisherman told us that the meat was not good to eat and that they preferred to eat mackerel rather than shark, so nearly all of the sharks were sent to Bali. As well as the female threshers there were a few male threshers and male mako sharks. Makos are said to be the fastest fish in the ocean and can leap to great heights. That first day we made a count and there were 76 female threshers, 4 male threshers and 5 male mako sharks. The very high percentage of pregnant females was of great concern to us so we decided to document the catch for a few days and interview the fishermen and other people involved. They told us that every day during the months of September and October they go fishing for sharks as well as mackerel. They estimate that they catch around 70 sharks a day, but some days they catch up to 130. The days we were there we observed that more than 90% are threshers most of them pregnant females. That would mean that about 4500 sharks are killed during the 2 month season. Other boats from Bali and Lombok also fish in the same area catching more sharks. There are also many large fishing boats at Bali’s Benoa fishing harbour which could also be involved in the lucrative trade. The fishermen at Sampalan get paid only 12,500 Rupiah a kilo for the shark meat which is about 1 Euro or 1.4 $ USA! So large sharks of 65kg are killed for 65 Euro or 91$. The fishing takes place using the small traditional Balinese wooden outrigger boats called jukung. They go out each afternoon into the Lombok strait and set 100m long-lines each with 10 hooks to target the thresher sharks. They return to Nusa Penida at dark and leave their catch on the beach to be

successful eco-tourism based around sustainable viewing of threshers. We contacted Dr Simon Oliver who is the head of the thresher shark research and conservation group. He was very concerned about the level of thresher fishing here and told us it was almost certainly unsustainable.

There are hundreds of tourists that enjoy snorkelling and diving in the rich waters around Nusa Penida every day. During the shark fishing season there are even more tourists than normal as they flock to the island to dive with the ocean giants: manta rays and Mola mola. The mantas are seen close to the surface year round and are also seen by snorkellers. Molas are seasonal and usually only seen on deep dives by experienced divers. All this tourist activity including large boats carrying hundreds of people to fixed water sport facilities just off the shore of Nusa Penida brings almost no benefit to the people of the island. That is because the trips are organised by companies on the main island of Bali or on the neighbouring island of Nusa Lembongan. To follow up our research on the 12th of October we decided to go to Kusamba to monitor the shark trade where they arrive by ferry from Nusa Penida. We found 88 sharks almost all female threshers. Porters off load the sharks from the ferry and then ladies carry the sharks balanced on their heads to pick-ups owned by shark traders. We followed a pick-up to a compound nearby. The owner was happy to show us his huge collection of shark products including fins and jaws and how he processed them. He weighed the sharks and cut the fins off. The fins are for export and will end up in shark fin soup. The tasteless fins are seen as a prestigious delicacy by many Chinese people and fetch huge prices. They are eaten mainly at weddings or to impress people at business lunches. This shark fin soup is driving the trade in sharks here in Bali and around the world.

In Indonesia and most countries in the world shark fishing is legal. Throwing the “low value” bodies of the sharks away at sea is prohibited in many countries but a normal practice in reality. Here in Indonesia with so many poor families the meat is not thrown away but it is seen as undesirable and is often salted and transported to Java and sold for low prices. Catching thresher sharks has already been banned in many countries of Europe (sadly far too late, since their population in parts of the Atlantic is believed to have declined 80% and in the Mediterranean 99%).The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species has Thresher Sharks as vulnerable and they need our protection. Thanks to the efforts of Dr Oliver and his team there is already a successful program to protect the thresher sharks at Malapascua in the Philippines. Fishing for thresher sharks has been banned in the whole area. 3 pelagic thresher sharks cleaning stations have been located and they are visited daily by dozens of divers. It has changed the source of local income on the island from an unsustainable fishery to an eco-diving industry that provides more that 90% of the whole islands income. Dr. Simon and his team has calculated that the Malapascua thresher shark diving industry is worth 60.000.000 USD a year! Whereas in Bali the sharks are worth a one off payment of 91 USD dead. Also a report written by Austin Gallagher and Neil Hammerschlag called Global shark currency: the distribution, frequency, and economic value of shark ecotourism calculates that a single reef shark can generate a daily income of 73 USD (26,570 USD a year) on tourism related activities, such as diving and snorkelling. So if we have 4500 thresher sharks killed each year how much would they be worth alive? Bali already has around 3 million tourists a year many of who are interested in diving and water sports. Perhaps we can recognise a live shark is worth a lot more to Bali than a dead shark. Increases in the number of high spending dive tourists could bring a long term benefit to many Balinese and boost the islands economy More and more states like Maldives, Fiji, Marshall Islands and the Bahamas are declaring their waters shark sanctuaries and as a result are seeing an increase in their number of tourist visitors. In and around Bali, if we act fast, we can stop the unsustainable killing of thresher sharks before it is really too late. Working together with the communities and fisherman we can find solutions and alternative sources of income. We have to develop educational programs that will teach the new generations the importance of sustainable practices. Interested people can contact

Once in Bali we did some research about thresher sharks and discovered that in the Philippines there is an island called Malapascua which has a dive industry based just on the chance to go diving with thresher sharks. They have a very

by Dr. Rob Inside of Bonuz Paintings by Putu Sudiana Bonuz At Tony Raka Art Gallery, Jl. Raya Mas No. 86, Ubud Tel: 975207 Putu Sudiana Bonuz was born on the tiny island of Nusa Penida, on the southeast coast of Bali in December 1972. In a place primarily known for its fishing and seaweed farming, Bonuz began by painting fishing boats. His great interest in painting was unusual in a fishing village, but, this did not discourage him from wanting to formally study painting. After finishing junior high school in Nusa Penida, he moved to Bali to study at the High School of Fine Arts. Then, in 1995, he continued on to the Indonesia Arts Institute, in Denpasar. In the excellent catalogue which accompanies this exhibition, esteemed Balinese art critic, Wayan Kun Adnyana, observes that Bonuz often presents talks about religion, meditation, and other spiritual matters. For Bonuz, spiritual affairs become a Bayangan di Langit kind of communal presentation. In short, he shuttles between individual and public positions within a spiritual framework. Adnyana also finds that the artworks of Bonuz are concerned with daily activities that are filled with the history of sacred rites. Bonuz has not chosen the path of ascetic extremes, which should be a hermit in the woods, but, instead, he chooses to work within the world of art, amongst city artists and village communities. Bonuz functions between spirituality as ritual, and his own obsessive activities within his personal inner-space. In inheriting the tradition of Hindu-Balinese rituals, Bonuz appears as the ‘priest’, the leader of the ceremonies, especially the family temple ceremonies. Also, in the Full Moon development of his internal spiritualism, he further achieves this by practicing both strenuous physical and mind exercises. His intuition plays between the desires to search for the answers of divinity by assuming the world as a stepping stone. Bonuz endeavors to explore the presence of divinity by seeking evidence of it in visible representations of nature. The paintings by Bonuz, such as ‘Bayangan di Langit’, ‘Full Moon’ and ‘Menjelang Terbenam’, show how nature is used as a means to discover the presence of a divinity. Perhaps, Adnyana claims, Bonuz sees the perfection of God on Earth in all natural phenomena. In all of Bonuz’s Menjelang Terbenam artworks, color and composition are presented spontaneously, to emphasize imaginary spatial explorations. Thus, abstraction can be seen to represent an imagined space of the universe. Further, the images presented in the exhibition can be read as abstracted representations of Bonuz’s personal spiritual experiences. In his conclusion, Adnyana writes that the fine art implemented by Putu Sudiana Bonuz walks between ritual history and spiritual practices, which seek to find a meaning in divinity. The phenomenons of nature become the

stimulus for Bonuz’s art, while the depictions of the nature of divinity can be seen as an effort by Bonuz to satisfy his inner-spiritual needs. Thus, in reading Bonuz’s artworks, Adnyana stresses that we should consider his daily world, and, in this context, associate it to the history of spiritual behavior which he clearly believes in and practices. Spiritual Dialogues Paintings by Pande Gde Supada At Ganesha Gallery, Four Seasons Resort, Jimbaran Bay Tel: 701010 A giant on the Balinese contemporary art scene for many years, Pande Gde Supada needs little introduction. As always, his newest series is a cause for celebration of the evolving creativity of this talented artist, Untitled 1 and influential teacher. In his latest exhibition, ‘Spiritual Dialogues’, Supada turns to meditation, a theme that stands at the heart of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy, religion and art. While engaging a discipline that demands solitary contemplation, in practice, meditation sparks an inner-dialogue as well as one with the greater whole, the Cosmos if you like. Indeed, its aim is the obliteration of the wall of illusion between the natural and supernatural worlds, resulting in unification, an experience known as enlightenment in the west, or nirvana in the east. While the concept is simple the path to inner-peace is more easily conceived than manifested. In Supada’s case, the difficulties and joys of his own convoluted inner- dialogue has provoked a series of images that serve both as a form of documentation, and personal exorcism of doubts and fears. As the examples ‘Untitled 1, 2, and 3’ demonstrate Supada’s Untitled 2 paintings dwell upon the human condition, especially the relationship between mother and child. In a traditional agricultural society such as Bali, motherhood is of special relevance, for it is associated with fertility and cornucopia. Supada’s images may also be references to the Balinese folktale of Men Brayut, a poor but loving peasant mother with full breasts and countless children. While the Madonna-like image may seem beneficent, similar to dreams and the underworld, it also harbours a dark secret, for Men Brayut traces her origins to Hariti, a child devouring ogress converted by Buddha into a saintly guardian of children. Supada’s sophisticated journey to achieve unity and balance between the inner-self and the raw and dangerous forces of nature is also mirrored in his composition and style. While the lines that delineate the rounded forms are curvilinear and fluid, the textured surfaces and hues are mysterious and challenging. Are these archetype images dredged up from ancient cave walls within the artist’s mind, or, are they latter-day

suggestions of graffiti, full of pathos and cynicism? While the answers to these questions may never be revealed, the artist has achieved great success in shining a light upon a dark and lonely path. E-mail: Copyright © 2011 Dr. Rob You can read all past articles of Artwords at

Christmas Gift Fair (1 and 8 December)

SOS Second Anniversary (3 December)

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I have to confess that I bought some Christmas cards and stocking fillers at the weekend. It’s kind of nice to be removed from all the commercialism of the festive period in Western countries but of course it’s nice to have a little Christmas spirit and there certainly is if you brave the traffic and head to the malls. That’s what I like about these little gift fairs where you can just about do most of your Christmas shopping in a confined area. There are stalls selling skincare products, homewares, gymwear, surfwear, spa products, adult and children’s clothes, jewelry with all sorts of gifts to choose from. December is upon us yet again and how time flies, another year almost over. So, time to think about your plans and gifts and what better place to find what you need than at this lovely gift fair. It is also a charity fundraiser and at this time of year it always brings out the best in people, appealing to their generosity. It’s a chance to get into the festive spirit so go along and enjoy the atmosphere and spirit of Christmas.

This is one of those anniversary parties that is sure to attract the glamour and pull the ‘A’ list crowds to one of the top new night spots all of which have seemed to have gone way upmarket, another sign of the changing times in Bali. The evening’s line up of entertainment includes Eric Entrena, Mr SukaMu (Love in Tents), Visual Mapping, Broadway Show, Haute Couture by Design Shop, FTV Midnight Show by House of EMM3 and a very special performance by Moonlight Matters. The host for the evening is Mario Lawalata. It’s a late start giving you time to enjoy the early part of the evening before stepping into the party atmosphere. RSVP and celebrate the second anniversary of this spot that has found its rightful place in the Bali night scene.

Jatiluwih: World Heritage Site Bali is one of the few places on earth made visually stunning by its main economic activity. In no other locale of the island does this hold truer than in the Tabanan District of west Bali where the cascading rice terraces of Jatiluwih are the most striking feature of the agricultural landscape, claiming even slopes that look too formidable to be of any possible use. Along with majestic Pekerisan River in Gianyar and the stately Taman Ayun Temple in Mengwi, Jatiluwih has been chosen as a new nominee as a World Heritage site. It’s a great honor for Bali to have its natural and cultural wonders included, as the sites will take their place right along side world-famous Borobudur,

groomed, and plowed, has been developed over many centuries. The historical manuscript, the Bebetin, records that Balinese farmers have used the Subak system since at least 1071. Some scholars have postulated that it is due to the expertise of Bali’s rice farmers that the Balinese have been able to support such a refined civilization with such a theatrical and colorful religion. The discipline required to share water and resources has created a remarkably cooperative way of life. Rugged individualists cannot exist in communities where every farmer is utterly dependent on the cooperation of his neighbors.

were introduced, replacing around 20 venerable old indigenous varieties. These hybrid strains used to give higher yields, thus they became the farmer’s favorites, even though the large quantities of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides needed to pamper the new rice degraded the quality of the soil. Now, due to improved growing methods, the yields for Bali Padi are 4-5 tons per hectare, about the same as the standard varieties. Today the annual yield from the well-irrigated slopes of Jatiluwih is only equaled by the “golden triangle” of Thailand. Though the growing methods for both varieties are similar, I was surprised to learn that two crops of Padi Bali are harvested each year, the same number of harvests as standard “high yield” rice. Pak Pekaseh told me that Padi Bali is planted in December and January and is harvested in June. In July, it is replanted using local seeds that the farmers produce themselves, eschewing the use of patented seeds. Natural fertilizers such as leaves, cow and chicken manure and garden and food compost are used for the most part, though a minimum amount of chemical fertilizers (pupuk urea) are still used. It used to be a lovely sight along Bali’s roads to see bales of Padi Bali gracefully balanced on women’s heads or bobbing at the ends of bamboo poles. But since the grains of the new varieties fall off too easily, rice is no longer carried back to the village to be stored in rice storage shed (jineng) and threshed as needed. A number of traditional harvest festivals and ceremonies have also withered away.

Prambanan, the Sangiran archaeological site, Ujung Kulon, Lorentz and Komodo national parks, and the tropical rainforests of Sumatra. The results of the three new nominations will be announced in July 2012 at the annual plenary session of UNESCO. The achingly picturesque area of Jatiluwih actually comprises not only rice fields but also forests, lakes, springs, temples and a huge natural mountain reserve scattered over a wide area around the slopes Mount Batukaru, a sacred landscape whose boundaries are defined by a cluster of temples supported by traditional villages and farmlands administered by age-old subak organizations, the local water boards. This site is among the most striking examples of terraced agriculture in the world and is arguably Bali’s oldest and most complex real-life model of the subak agricultural system which vividly reflects the intertwined, mutually beneficial relationship between the island’s traditional rice growing culture and its Bali Hindu spiritual belief system. Bali’s terracing and irrigation practices are even more elaborate, sophisticated, and seasonably predictable than those on Java. Though beautiful rice field terraces also can also be found in Sumatra and Sulawesi, there is no irrigation organization in Indonesia comparable to Bali’s water conservation and distribution system. Only the 2000-year-old Ifugao rice terraces of the Philippines can hold a candle to Jatiluwih. As it exemplifies such effective water usage over centuries, Bali’s famed environmentally friendly subak system itself is being considered for the World Heritage list. The effort to get the subak system listed to World Heritage status is especially urgent in the face of widespread diversion of agricultural lands. Over the past 20 years Bali lost more than 1,500 ha of precious rice fields to make way for the development of tourist resorts, restaurants, housing complexes, road construction and other commercial enterprises.

The word for rice (nasi), a staple of the Balinese diet, is the same word for “meal”. A Balinese cannot imagine a meal without rice. Specialized vocabularies deal with every aspect of rice farming, and a huge amount of time, energy, and money go into petitioning the gods so the rice farmer’s work may yield good results. Popping up everywhere in Jatiluwih’s rice terraces you see small temples dedicated to Dewi Sri, the beloved goddess of rice. A Visit with the Pekaseh To see the area for myself, I set out on a recent Saturday afternoon to seek out the head of the local subak organization, the Pekaseh. The scenery on the road up from Denpasar is typical of many parts of Bali with advertising billboards, though as the road ascends it narrows, the traffic thins, more greenery appears, and the villages become more traditional the higher you climb. I chose a more unique back door approach to Jatiluwih via the road north from Tabanan City on the way up to the Batukaru temple complex, taking the smaller road east at the top of the village of Wangaya Gede. If you want to take this route, be careful not to miss the turn off to Batukaru in the village of Baruan Kaja on the main road to Penebel, the district capital. Taking this winding mountainous road, the vistas and topography are more variegated and dramatic, passing by hillside terraces, tunnel-like passages through lush forests and rivers at the bottom of steep valleys. After around 10 km, the road finally joins the main road in Jatiluwih village that takes the traveler to Penebel. I parked on the road and made inquiries in the local warung, serving as the village bamboo telephone switchboard, and was led into a typical Balinese compound of dwellings built around a central paved open courtyard used for drying rice, coffee, cassava, cocoa and other agricultural products. There I met Pak I Ketut Astra, the pekaseh, who invited us into his living room. Pak Astra informed me t h a t t h e Jatuluwih area comprises a total of seven subak with 395 farmers heading 80 households

The Realm of Dewi Sri Jatiluwih is one big sculpture. Because of the Tabanan area’s superb drainage pattern, the high volcanic ash content, and the island’s equable climate, conditions for traditional sawah cultivation exemplified by Jatiluwih’s terraces are perhaps the most ideal in all of Bali. Rice growing is practiced as both an art and a science. Bali’s steep and narrow ravines, as typified especially in the western part of Jatiluwih, are not easy to dam. To remedy this problem, the area’s farmers have devised an ingenious system of hand-built aqueducts, small catchments, and underground canals to collect rainwater from Bali’s mountain lakes, spilling each farmer’s precious allotment of water onto tiers of paddy via thousands of tiny waterfalls. Jatiluwih’s rice fields are irrigated by water that is sometimes channeled by tunnels through solid rock hillsides. Water needs high on the ridges often require tunnels two or three kilometers long. This complex irrigation system, continuously maintained,

Women pounding rice in wooden troughs have also given way to thousands of mechanical rice mills. Since the new strain is considered “foreign,” the Balinese feel it’s no longer necessary to use the traditional handheld knife (anggapan) so as not to offend the rice goddess. Balinese now use sickles (arit), which shatter the new breed’s fragile stalks easily. Still, small patches of padi bali are sometimes maintained in lowland rice-growing areas, cut with anggapan to placate Dewi Sri.

and controlling 303 ha of rice lands. Overwhelmingly the main crop grown in these highlands is the native variety of rice known as Padi Bali (also often called “fragrant red rice”). One can easily tell the difference between the diminutive high-yield, disease- and insect-resistant “miracle” governmentsponsored varieties of rice and the magnificent, organically grown native plant, which can stand as high as a man (120 cm). In most of Bali, starting around 1985, new “miracle” breeds of rice

Though the cultivation of Padi Bali is now only confined to mountainous areas such as Jatiluwih and Taro, the majority of Balinese prefer the higher-priced Padi Bali which currently commands Rp13,000 per kilo as opposed to Rp9,000 per kilo for the standard variety. “Why do people buy the more expensive rice?” I asked Pak Astra. “It tastes better,” he simply replied. Practicalities On the Batukaru side, a few kilometers east of Wangaya Gede, is Mira Agrowisat which sells Bali and Bali luwak coffee, natural spices, and aromatherapies. Entrance fee from the Batukaru side is Rp10,000 adult, Rp5000 child; parking Rp5000 cars. European and domestic tourists arrive between 10 am and 3 pm. In Jatilwuwih village, eat at Billy’s Terrace Café, Warung Dhea (Beef Teriyaki and Saikoro Steak for Rp40,000) or Warung Teras. Backpackers stay at Homestay Galang Kangin Inn, tel. 0361-815240, costing Rp200,000 per double room. Rooms in back are less noisy than the ones facing the road. More upmarket is Bali Natureland (tel. 0361-880-077, www., costing $180 net for a double villa including breakfast, dinner and spa treatments for two. Extra beds Rp250,000. Five villas look out over an expanse of rice fields.
