30 October - 13 November, 2013

How did you get into writing, editing and publishing? I remember that teaching English in Indonesia in late 1990s was fun but I wanted to do something more creative. I remember buying a book about how to become a travel writer and I thought, this is for me. For me the writing and the photography just went together naturally. I bought my first camera, a Canon, and just started writing and photographing places that I travelled to. My writing career developed from there. I got my first job with a foreign investment-consulting firm, which published a news magazine called Perspective. From there I moved to Indo Multi Media. I wrote some articles, submitted them to Jakarta Kini and Java Kini magazines and they offered me a full-time job which I loved.

Magazine Editor & Publisher What was the best writing job you’ve had in Indonesia? Adam Fenton was born in Parramatta in Sydney’s western suburbs and grew up in nearby North Rocks. The third of three kids, the family lived in a three-bedroom on a quarter-acre block, just up the road from a bush reserve where the young boy could go exploring, catch tadpoles and swim in the creek. After finishing high school in Melbourne, Adam attended Kingswood College and Monash University where he completed a Bachelor of Arts/Law degree and has since earned graduate degrees in Legal Practice and Indonesian language. Adam has lived in Indonesia a total of around 15 years, has travelled the country extensively and has worked for a diverse range of Indonesia-based media organizations.

At that time, Hello Bali was just getting started and the company got the contract for the Garuda Inflight magazine. I eventually took over as editor for four years. During my time there, it was ranked by Skytrax as being in the Top 20 Inflight magazines in the world. I then went on to set up my own magazine, Bali Style, with partner Ari, which focuses on Indonesia’s amazing home-wares and interior design. It is Bali’s only home living and décor magazine. What was the first piece you ever published? My first ever travel piece was about Gunung Halimun National Park in West Java, which was published in Jakarta Kini around 1998. I have some great memories of travelling to the park. It was a pretty bumpy trip, and there were no roads, so I had to walk the last few miles. It was such a fantastic cultural experience to stay in a homestay right in the middle of a remote, traditional Sundanese village with the frogs croaking in the rice fields at night. I hope it’s still as beautiful as it was then. The walk to the waterfall was magical and it was one of the best weekend trips from Jakarta I ever did.

What are you reading right now?

What’s the most unforgettable place you’ve visited in the country?

The Greatest Benefit to Mankind, a history of medicine through the ages. I find that stuff fascinating. I just picked it up because it was on a friend’s bookshelf. The last book I loved reading was Bill Bryson’s At Home, a short history of private life. He is such an erudite writer and his stuff is meticulously researched, well written and often very funny.

I remember events more than places - the bull fights in Bukittinggi in West Sumatra, the caci whip fights of Flores, the Erau Water Festival in Kutai Kartanegara in East Kalimantan and the Kasodo festival at Mt Bromo. In 1998 during the May riots in Jakarta, I went to the parliament while students were occupying it and took lots of photos.

What are your interests/hobbies?

What’s the most exciting writing assignment you ever had?

In the last few years I’ve become a big fan of cycling. For me it ticks a lot of boxes. It is environmentally friendly – no exhaust fumes other than my modest emissions. It is a free workout and really gets a sweat going – no gym membership required. And you can do it alone or in a group – unlike say tennis, which requires a partner. I also love the feeling of freedom when you get out on the open road, especially in the country areas – with the fresh air in your face. I also love sailing but don’t get to do that as often as I’d like. One other hobby is brewing beer. I found out that you can make some surprisingly good brews at home. When was your first trip to Indonesia? A very memorable Bali package holiday in 1995 to celebrate completion of my undergraduate studies. I stayed at the Balisani Hotel in Legian. We did all the touristy stuff - day trips to Kintamani, Besakih, Ubud monkey forest, etc. I just remember feeling a sense of wide-eyed fascination at how different, exciting, colorful and chaotic everything was. I was immediately hooked.

While I was editing Garuda magazine, I travelled to China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, India and all over Indonesia. One of the most amazing trips was a five-day cruise around the Komodo islands aboard the luxury pinisi schooner Silolona. I’ve also had the privilege of staying in the Presidential suite in the stunning Dharmawangsa in Jakarta. Another exciting writing assignment was riding a bicycle solo from Bali to Lombok and then on to Sumba – via ferry for the sea crossings of course – but using nothing but pedal power. Once I got to Sumba I was really roughing it. I ended up getting the worst case of diarrhea I’ve ever had, I was accosted by a gang of thugs and was hit by a motorbike while riding to the airport to get the blazes out of there. Suffice it to say that Sumba is not my favorite island in Indonesia. How may you be contacted? Email: or adam@

Where do you live now? I currently live in Darwin, with regular trips to Indonesia. Darwin is great because it’s a small and vibrant city with a very multi-cultural population and no traffic! It’s Australia’s gateway to Asia and is only a two-hour flight to Bali. I love being based here.

SCHEDULE THAT BIWA Christmas Charity Bazaar (1 December) The new date of the Bali International Women’s Association (BIWA) Bazaar is 1 December, timely changed to coincide with the start of the festive season. What a great opportunity to do some Christmas shopping with over 200 stalls including arts and craft, clothing, accessories just to mention a few and of course plenty of food, drink and activities for the whole family. I don’t know about the BA readers but I am often stuck for gift ideas and browsing a bazaar often provides some much needed inspiration and of course a few bargains along the way. In addition there will be raffles, door prizes and entertainment. Do pop this date in your diary or phone memo and make sure you come along as all proceeds will go to the BIWA chosen charities. The BIWA ladies do some incredible amount of social work and fund raising as well as their monthly luncheon gatherings. Do check out their website and it is an organisation well worth getting involved in, particularly if you want to do some charity work and make a difference to the community.

Centerstage (2 November) Two exciting events are happening at Centerstage, Bali’s answer to the Glee Club. Not since High School Musical has Bali seen such a major production that all young people will want to be part of and this is a must for aspiring actors and actresses in the age region of 9 – 13 years out there. The production will hit the stage in Bali in May 2014, plenty of time for plenty of rehearsals which are almost just as much fun as the actual shows. If your child wants to be the next Danny, Sandy a T-Bird or one of the pink ladies then this is going to be a part to win and a part to remember. I am sure we all have fond memories when Grease was the hit musical, not to mention those classic songs! Now, if you are into Zombies which has really become a popular genre particularly since the hit season ‘The Walking Dead’ then this will definitely appeal to you, depending of course what is meant by the term ‘zombie’. A film making workshop entitled ‘Zombies in Paradise’. I think that needs to be left to the imagination but wow, what an opportunity to get involved in a film making workshop. However, this is aimed at children aged 8+, although as an adult I am indeed intrigued! There really is so much going on at Centerstage with private drama lessons, dance lessons and musical instrument lessons. The end of year concert to showcase the talents of the students will also be something to look forward to. Do check out the website for more details of all that is happening at Centrestage. When : 2 – 4 pm (auditions) 10 am – 1 pm (workshop) Where : Centrestage, Jl Lestari No 2, Umalas Contact : Melanie 0821 44815165 office 8960606

Food and Beverage Conference (21 - 23 November) Such an important industry, food and beverages and just thinking of the international cuisine, the creative chefs, the wholesome ingredients, the scents of the spices, what more can I say. As a food lover, I just get so very excited about the word food and what dishes can be created from some of the simplest or finest ingredients. This conference offers more than the basics. Machinery, equipment, supplies, wines and spirits, technology, retail, franchising, fresh and processed fruits, agricultural products, halal, organic and natural health food products, frozen food, fish, sea food and meat products are the ingredients of the conference.

Rock and Run (3 November) ‘Take Time to Be Kind’ is one of Hard Rock’s brand mantras and it certainly is with the 13th Rock and Run.

Included in the price is a t-shirt, refreshments and a chance to win a lucky draw prize. The winner of the race will win 30,000 Air Asia miles exchangeable for a round trip fare Bali to Hong Kong. Keep on training and thank you to Air Asia!

Local Libations By Meeka Anne

Intoxicating... The mere sound of the word evokes an image or a feeling. I will never forget the first time I arrived in Bali and stumbled out of the twin-engine plane from Timor. As soon as I stepped on the aluminum stairwell and the sticky perfumed air slapped me in the face, my head began to spin. I instantly fell into a state of natural intoxication. The dictionary defines the word intoxicate as: 1. To stupefy or excite by the action of a chemical substance, such as alcohol. 2. To stimulate or excite. 3. To poison. In Bali, all of the above apply. There are those, who as Anais Nin quoted have no need of wine, as mere life is intoxicating enough. Without a doubt, Bali can intoxicate the soul, simply by being Bali. And there are those who see this island as a place where no rules apply and come here for nothing more than a drunken holiday. And sadly, there are those who have crossed paths with arak tainted with methanol and found themselves poisoned by the deadly brew. The history of local libations in Bali is defined by local culture, by travelers looking for a buzz, and by those with a penchant for profit. In the 80’s when I first landed here, pear-shaped bottles of brem wine sat on most restaurant tabletops. That, or a Bintang beer were your only choices in most small eating venues unless you wanted to venture out into the hard stuff called arak. Arak looked and smelled like the American version of illegal moonshine and packed a powerful punch. Another drink, less known to tourists but extremely popular with the local males is tuak.

quite sweet and available in seven flavors including local tropical delights such as banana, coffee and coconut. Arak takes tuak to yet another level by distilling the milky substance to make a very strong spirit. I took a drive up to Karangasem last week to check out a small family owned arak distillery. I must say it was surprising to see exactly how arak is produced, due to all the tainted brew that has the news buzzing with stories of death and blindness caused by indulging in this powerful drink. Pak Putu was happy to show me the entire process and what I saw was a very natural spirit derived from nothing but a coconut flower and then steam distilled. Putu virtually walked up a coconut palm and attached a plastic jug with a piece of coconut husk inside. He then brought a container down with fresh tuak, which he had captured earlier in the day. He poured some for me to try and it was very sweet with a hint of a coconut flavor, very unlike the sour concoctions I remembered from the village so many years ago.He explained that I had most likely tried tuak which had fermented for a few days.

Bintang means star in Indonesian, and it is the clear winner as the local beer most consumed by tourists. This popular beer is found in restaurants, grocery stores, and just about every roadside warung in popular tourist towns in the south, as well as remote areas in the interior. The love for this brew is apparent by observing the proliferation of people who outfit themselves in bintang logo shorts, t-shirts, hats and bags.

Next he showed me a large 120 liter plastic barrel which he fills with the flower sap and pieces of coconut husk. He lets this ferment for three days.

Brem is a dark-colored fermented wine made with red or black rice. The Dewi Sri brem factory is in Sanur and an interesting place to visit if you want to observe the bottling process. Brem, arak and tuak are all spirits used in an offering called matabuh. These three “spirits” appease the “lower demonic spirits” by pouring all three directly on the ground.

Pak Putu uses a coconut wood urn to cook the sap and uses coconut wood for the fire. Tubing is stretched from the coconut urn to a vat of cold water where steam distillation drips the final product into a bucket. It takes 120 liters of the tuak flower sap to yield 30 liters of “super” arak. Clearly a very pure and natural process, yet one that produces some very strong brew. He sells a bintang bottle full for 9000rp.

Tuak is a mild wine made by fermenting the sap from the flower buds of the coconut palm. It is a milky, sour, concoction, best consumed within three days. One summer about 20 years ago, I lived in Candidasa and became very familiar with this mild drink. It seemed a few times a week under the “guise” of a ceremony, all the local boys would tell us to grab a sarong, hop on a motorbike and head up to the village. Afternoon would turn into evening as a small glass of tuak made its way around a circle for each of us to down in one gulp. After a couple of hours, the boys would start singing genjek, which is quite the art form. Some of the singers imitate instruments, while others chime in alternately with verse. I still smile when I think of those lazy afternoons spent in the village. In the 90’s, a Sanur based family created a new product with tuak by fermenting the sugar palm alcohol with fresh fruits. By incorporating a unique packaging concept using ceramic bottles shaped like a gazebo, the company named Bali Moon has created a niche local market for itself. The liqueurs are

So where does it go so terribly, terribly wrong? Most arak distilleries are isolated in the middle of Bali, far away from tourist trade areas. Because of this, middlemen often come calling to purchase the pure arak to resell in the more populated areas. Apparently, some get greedy and decide to cut the pure arak with easily obtainable and cheap methanol. And this is where the trouble begins. In 2009, Bali made headlines after 25 people died from methanol infused arak. In addition to the 21 Indonesians, two British, one Dutch and one American were included in the fatalities. The damage did not stop here as dozens more were hospitalized.

sweeping late-night raid. The next day shelves were empty and shop owners faces were still ashen and shell-shocked. And I was left without a drop to drink on my birthday. Hence, the beginning of the rise of Hatten Wines. Hatten, at that time was a locally made wine harvested from grapes grown in Northern Bali, in Singaraja. The initial launch of this island based winery’s product earned less than favorable reviews. However, they pushed through and continued to expand by purchasing cutting edge winemaking equipment and by hiring an experienced CEO from Australia. They now import grapes to make a second more refined wine called Two Islands. The overnight extinction of imported wines on the island in 2007 literally made Hatten an overnight success story. Over the past few years Bali has seen a dramatic change in the hospitality industry. Top chefs from around the world create fusion masterpieces in dozens of five star restaurants. Fine wine is an essential component for an exceptional dining experience, so imported wines began to appear on shelves again, albeit, with a very hefty price tag. Slowly wine shops began to appear again and fine wines popped up on menus. Bridges Restaurant in Ubud has gotten very serious about the wine industry in Bali by opening Divine Wine Shop on the top-level of the restaurant. The entire shop is kept at a premium wine temperature of 18 celsius to preserve the integrity of the products. These products range from local wines at less than $20.00 a bottle on up to an exclusive Chateau Margaux for over $1000.00. Divine wine shop has over 180 different labels and every Friday they offer a wine tasting called Divine Friday. At this event which runs from 4-7pm, guests can sample up to 5 wines for a small fee. Complimentary canapes are also offered at this weekly event. Over the last 25 years there have been dramatic changes in the cost, types, and availability of alcohol on the island. It is yet another way to observe an island which remains mired in culture despite invasions of western infuences. Young men still sit in circles and drink tuak and sing genjek just as their ancestors did hundreds of years ago. Arak is still offered to the gods as a way to appease the evil spirits and still produced locally in small family homes. Yet, discerning tourists can find a fine wine or a fancy cocktail in most dining venues. While you are in Bali, you most likely will drink a cold Bintang at a warung on the beach or try a glass of Hatten wine with dinner. As for arak, there are many places to purchase a safe arak cocktail, however, there is no denying the risks involved. If you choose to sample arak, it is best to proceed cautiously and perhaps limit yourself to one cocktail.

In spite of the apparent danger, arak has become more popular than ever due to the high tariffs which have pushed up prices of wine and spirits. For a few years before 2007, clever importers began to provide decent Australian wines and brand name liquors such as Absolut vodka and Jack Daniels. They figured out ways to smuggle these in without paying tariffs and prices were actually well below what expats and tourists would pay in their own countries.

It might be more fun to find a local and sample a glass of tuak. You’ll surely have great conversation, maybe learn to sing genjek and learn more about the culture of Bali.

This literally changed overnight. I remember it well as I was celebrating a milestone birthday the day after the raids. Every bottle shop on the island was literally wiped out in one

The Family (Malavita) French screenwriter and director Luc Besson is best known for his fast paced action-movies, yet, occasionally, he will make something completely out-of-the-box. Such is the case with his terrific black-comedy ‘The Family’. An American mobster, and his family, are prepared to give evidence against the Mafia, so, they are placed in witness protection in a small provincial French town. Still, while in hiding, the family finds it rather hard to give up their old gangster ways. Audiences familiar with Besson’s work will know that he is obsessed with American crime movies. He is also obsessed, in particular, with one prominent American director, and, ‘The Family’ pays homage to this famed person. However, when the tribute comes, Besson presents it in a very amusing manner. Robert De Nero shows that he can still turn in a good performance, when he feels that the director and the movie are worth it, while, Michelle Pfeiffer proves that she is still a great ‘movie star’. With his mix of Gallic cynicism and American humor, Besson makes a winning film. Concussion A ‘forty something’ lesbian, in a committed relationship, becomes bored with her affluent suburban life. She buys a loft in New York, under the pretense of doing it up and re-selling it, so that she can start a double life as a highclass prostitute. She sees this as a means to release her pent-up libido, and, to explore her growing sexual desires. This is one of those ‘independent’ films, which seems to come out of nowhere, but, entirely captures your attention. Director Stacie Passon does a fabulous job investigating modern-day sexual experiences, while, Robin Weigert gives a devastatingly good performance.

Diary by Mr. Robet

hunted down by a pair of red-necks. When the prisoner learns of this, he escapes from prison, and, somehow, finds them, and comes to their aid. Even logistically, the film doesn’t make much sense. The Internship* Two unemployed middle-aged men apply for an Internship with the Google Corporation. They have to compete against young adults for any possible positions. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson star in this very inane comedy. Mary and Martha Hilary Swank and Brenda Blethyn play women whose sons both die from malaria in Africa. They form an organization to bring attention to the disease to the American Government. The film has noble intentions, but, it is dreary. Plush A Rock Star doesn’t realize that her new guitarist and lover is a psychopath. Embrace of the Vampire Plagued by hallucinatory visions, a college girl grasps that she is a vampire. Goddess An Australian housewife becomes a singing sensation through her web site.

Empire State A Security Officer steals from the Armored Truck company where he works.

Fright Night 2* A group of American college students, on an exchange program with a Romanian University, come under the spell of an extremely old vampire. To kill the vampire, they turn for help to an American TV Horror Show Host, who happens to be in Romania making an episode of his program. Okay, this sequel is not as amusing as the original ‘Fright Night’ (1985), nor as wacky as the 2011 re-make, still, it does have some very funny screwball moments.

The Family (Malavita) An American family are placed in witness protection in provincial France. Concussion A lesbian, in a committed relationship, starts on a double life as a prostitute. World War Z*# An awful virus attacks mankind and nearly everyone changes into a Zombie. Man of Steel* A fresh and very impressive reworking of the long lasting Superman legend. The Look of Love A bio-pic about Paul Raymond, who made a fortune selling sex in the media. Best Man Down At a wedding reception the Best Man has a heart attack and falls down dead. This is the End* James Franco throws a fabulous party, during which the Apocalypse occurs. Elysium The world’s wealthy are living a life of luxury on an orbiting space-station. Fright Night 2* Some American exchange students come under the spell of an old vampire. The Lone Ranger* This imposing film tells us how The Lone Ranger became The Lone Ranger.

Jewtopia A Gentile boy wants to find and marry a nice Jewish girl, so he never has to make a decision again. He asks a Jewish boy friend from childhood to teach him how to behave like a Jew. I guess you have to be Jewish, and come from upper-middle class Los Angeles, to really get the humor in this comedy. But, in a rather exaggerated racial stereotype kind of way, the movie is hilarious. Sunlight Jr. Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon play a ‘white trash’ couple living in a motel somewhere in Florida. To earn a living, Naomi works in a convenience store while Matt collects Social Security checks. They endlessly discuss their big financial problems, in this depressing look at the American working classes. Breakout* A prisoner’s children go on a camping holiday into the Canadian wilderness. There, they are tormented and

Stuck in Love A family who are all writers just talk on and on about their current projects.

Best Man Down At the wedding reception of a nice young couple, the Best Man has a heart attack, and drops down dead. The couple have to cancel their honeymoon, and set about arranging the funeral. As they inform the family and friends of the deceased, they are to discover that the Best Man led a rather unusual secret private life. This is another ‘independent’ movie which will take you by surprise. Writer and director Ted Koland brings a lot of amusing and insightful wit into his film, that, rationally, should have been a tragic affair.

The Lone Ranger* Back in the 1950s, week after week, The Lone Ranger, and his faithful Indian companion Tonto, fought injustices in their long-running TV show. Now, director Gore Verbinski tells us how The Lone Ranger became The Lone Ranger, in his big-budget blockbuster. Verbinski’s movie is a lush and imposing production, but, coming in at 2 hours and 20 minutes, it also seems over-long and a bit self-indulgent. As Tonto, Johnny Depp gives a peculiar interpretation. His Tonto comes across as ‘dim-witted’, which was probably not his intention, even so, his performance does throw the movie off balance.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

Tapas with a Difference! Salt Tapas @ Sentosa brings Australia’s famous international chef Luke Mangan to Bali. His Salt Grill and Salt Tapas restaurants have already boomed i n S y d n e y, To k y o , Singapore and Jakarta. Luke’s style is based on the discipline of a French fine dining kitchen, working with the best local ingredients, producing what is sometimes traditional and more often with a modern progressive hand, even a local spice or two! Luke Mangan’s journey in the culinary world began many years ago in Melbourne at then Australia’s finest dining French restaurant, Two Faces. From there to the masters, the Roux brothers, at their world famous Waterside Inn, then back to Australia to put all that experience to work! The concept at Salt Tapas is to order a variety of complementing dishes, with a variety of tastes. Whilst local ingredients and spices have been sourced wherever possible it is good to see that a few of what have become Luke’s signature dishes have survived the journey. Sentosa has been adventurous in continually bringing new dining concepts to Bali. The opening restaurant was Blossom with Will Meyrick, Bali’s first successful Thai restaurant. Then followed a return to the classics, with EVO which was traditional Italian, under William Collier, the ultimate simple cuisine done well. Now we go to a new form of modern dining, a multitude of small plates exploring the tastes of the world. Little Nibbles head the menu here, more the size of traditional tapas, just a mouthful or two to whet the appetite. Lobster Brioche with Vietnamese salad, simple Croquettes with bacon and parmesan, Chorizo with sofrito and a popular one from the previous EVO menu, Suckling Pig Sliders, with chilli and pickled cucumber, A Taco with a difference is stuffed with tempura prawn, pineapple salsa and chilli aioli.

unusual combinations to tempt the taste buds! One of the master chef’s signature dishes is his Crab Omelette which sounds so basic, but not in Luke’s hands… drizzled with miso and topped with enoki mushroom! The Crab Omelette and my favourite Marroccan Baked Eggs [tangine style with paprika, capsicum/tomato sofrito] with chorizo are both only found on the special brunch menu.

There are many meat dishes to choose form; Chicken Drumettes baked and spicy with romesco, Suckling Pig with pickled mustard greens. For larger meals or dishes to share; Lamb cutlets, with ras el hanout, baba ganoush, pistachio tabouleh, saffron yoghurt, Pork Spare Ribs or Wagyu sirloin with baby corn & spicy mayo, BBQ sauce. Vegetarians have not been forgotten and have never had it so good. The veggie offerings at so many places are just so bland and boring!

Non-Smoking Area : Yes

Eggplant, haloumi, chickpea, dried tomatoes and herbs with tahini dressing, a wonderful salad of Beetroot, asparagus, split egg [boiled but served cold with perfect soft yolk], radish, rocket, tarragon dressing, Curried Roasted Pumpkin, capsicum, labneh, dukkah and coriander, Soft Parmesan Polenta with poached egg, mushrooms & hazelnuts or Moroccan Cauliflower, saffron yoghurt, pine nuts & currants. I am certainly no vegetarian but I could happily just feast on these dishes.

Also carrying on from the EVO menu is a selection of cold meats; salami, pastrami, bresaola and parma prosciutto. New things include an incredible Salmon Sashimi, thin layers covered with ginger, shallots and labneh [Middle Eastern yoghurt cheese]. Garlic Prawns sit on a saffron rouille topped with shredded apple and fennel and a tasty Crab Croquette is in a chipotle mayonnaise.

The cuisine treats also extend to the dessert menu. Floating Island is berries, in an amaretto anglaise with lemon curd, basil, another signature dish of Luke Mangan is the Liquorice Parfait with candied lime syrup, flesh and zest, The Panna Cotta is with young coconut & star anise pear, and for all those who love chocolate…the Gooey Hot Chocolate Tart with caramelized banana and salted caramel ice cream! Alfogato is with Frangelico and biscotti.

The seafood section of the menu is devoid of common things such as Fish & Chips, instead presenting new twists with

Update Warisan still leads the way for relaxed elegance in Bali. Their spacious layout is a refreshing change from being packed in like sardines as at so many other high profile places. They are also now offering interesting snacks to go with that relaxed style, Tapas from 4.00 p.m. every day. There are cold and simple dishes; Parma ham and crissini, Salmon Blinis with sour cream or a Cheese Platter. Hot options include; Roasted Gambas, Blackened Red Tuna with eggplant caviar, Lamb Kofte with mint yoghurt [pictured], Risotto Cheese Ball and capsicum coulis, Crisp Calamari Ring with sautéed truffled potato or Asparagus Tempura. Wining & Tapasing presents a bottle of wine [Sauvignon Blanc, USA Classic White, Zinfandel or an Aussie Cabernet Sauvignon] each wine perfectly paired with a matched selection of 4 different tapas. Warisan, Bali’s original stand-alone fine dining success story [of 20+ years], the only Bali restaurant where you do not have to mention the address, unless you are a new arrival, then it is Jln. Raya Kerobokan.

Warung Kayu Api is doing what many others have failed to do, run a successful restaurant on The Bypass at Sanur. Over the years they have come and gone, with a few more tottering on the edge right now! The menu at Kayu Api comprises Balinese [very traditional] a little Indonesian and many International options. My favourites here are the Bali Wrapped Up [babi guling meat with spices wrapped in pita bread] and their great Chicken Fajitas, but there are also the Giant Hanging Skewers [tender tasty slow-cooked chicken thighs, etc], the Balinese Banquet and so many other a la carte dishes to consider. Now they have attacked the Friday ‘afternoon after work’ expat crowd with their Aperitivo Hours, 5.00 to 7.30 p.m., free tapas with your drinks …fancy a cold beer?

Solata has now opened [serving dinner every night from 7.00 p.m.] and brings to Bali Italian

chef Ezio Gritti directly from the famous 3 star Michelin Guide restaurant L’Osteria di via Solata in Bergamo, in Italy’s north. This is a very fine dining experience that will be enjoyed by all those food lovers who can appreciate this level of cuisine. Bali has never seen a restaurant concept quite like this before. Small and intimate it has a clever classic design with well-spaced private tables inside air-conditioned or in a garden setting, situated in central Seminyak on Jln. Sunset [past Jln. Kunti] and offers a series of set menus put together to present a balance of tastes. You can choose the Gourmet menu [begin with a shrimp salad with beetroot and asparagus] Vegetarian [sautéed tofu with ginger and honey] or the Chef’s Specialty Menu [mushroom risotto with lemon and foie gras]. There is also a menu for children. All the menus are five courses except the children’s one which is four small courses.

Warung Bendega has been a fixture on the corner of Cok Agung Tresna and Jayagiri in Renon for many years. It has recently been demolished and a whole new complex built in its place, a very modern and stylish structure with ample off street parking, and busy, busy,busy! Now they have also opened on Jln. Raya Ubud, just after Ubud’s new market. They offer a range of local pastries and breads, and coffee any way you want it. This new Warung Bendega offers exactly the same menu as its Renon cousin, in fact it is an up-market Indonesian warung with all the usual things such as Fish Head Soup as well as the popular Oxtail [Sop Buntut]. Oxtail can also be ordered as a plate of small crispy deep-fried chunks or Bakar, simply grilled. Spicy crisp Tempe, Tuna Spring Rolls or those small local Mussels, served in their shells, topped with a spicy sambal. All the usual fish, chicken and duck dishes are on the menu and there are 7 different sambals that can be ordered separately, to suit your own taste. As Ubud is tourist country [unlike Renon] sandwiches and burgers are also on the Ubud menu.

Teatro Gastroteque appears to be the latest rave restaurant in Bali. As they offer dishes such as Butter Poached Lobster with caramelized cauliflower, truffle pure, spiced brioche, avruga caviar sphere, champagne sabayon and vanilla butter, perhaps there is good reason for that? Chef is a local from Irian Jaya, Mandif M. Warokka, but one who has traveled and achieved much in the Middle East and Europe, most recently working at Bali’s Banyan Tree. The restaurant is on what is known as Jln. Laksmana, in Kerobokan.

Gusto is the latest new café/restaurant in the Amed area. It is on the highside of Raya Amed,

Bunutan, with ocean views, between Amed and the tourist centre of Lipah Beach. Hungarian owned it provides some new tastes for the area. Goulash Soup may seem a winter only dish but this one is so good it is worth trying. Another new dish for this area is that Austrian, but now International, special Wiener Schnitzel. They also have many local Indonesian dishes of fish and chicken. Popular dessert for chocolate lovers is the Chocolate Volcano. Originally all the local restaurants and warungs in this area only served Indonesian Chinese cuisine [many do it very well and very cheaply] but now other European and Asian cuisines are starting to creep in as the so popular Amed area becomes more international.

Will Meyrick is a busy boy! Not satisfied with setting up two of Bali’s most successful restaurants [Sarong and MamaSan] he has been tackling the tough Jakarta market as well with E & O [successful as well? Just try to get a table without a reservation!]. And as they say in those awful TV commercials …and that is not all! Starring on Jakarta TV as The Street Chef he is constantly discovering new and different taste sensations to add to his repertoire. On a recent flying visit back to Bali he had time to add a few taste temptations to the menu, as if the choice there was not already incredible. Begin with starter plates of wafer thin ribbons of sashimi salmon scattered with organic flowers, crispy lamb and chickpea kofta with lemon chutney yoghurt and slow-cooked octopus salad with green papaya, ginger flower, peanuts, mint and nam yam dressing. Make your-own ‘DIY’ steamed buns of Peking Duck - messy but oh-so-good. Then there is an incredible Kalimantan Chicken, the breast having been smoked with apple wood before being grilled, the result is the most flavoursome tender chicken I have ever tasted. To top it off an amazing sauce drizzled over all, a blend of sweet soy and chili, so well balanced it is difficult to recognise the ingredients without previously knowing. Sensational flavours that make a quick return visit a must!

Sushi Q is quaintly named! Perhaps the owner was a fan of 1970’s pop star icon Susie Quattro, also known as Susie Q? It is a warung on Jln. Teuku Umar, Denpasar [at the Iman Bonjol end]. The full name is Sushi Qombi and it once again displays the international popularity of that Japanese invention, Sushi. Small selection but very cheap! Traditional sushi and those American-Japanese Maki rolls, salmon seems to be the most popular. Gerry Williams For more information see our website: NC/Ns/G-30 Oct. 13

Bird Lover’s Bali It felt like Old Bali again. As we approached the bird sanctuary north of Peliatan in the late afternoon, the quiet village of Petulu lay slumbering along a tree-lined road. In the center of the village, a few tourists were gathered in a building across rice fields. It wasn’t long before flocks of large white herons came wheeling, drifting, sailing and finally landing in tall palms and bunut trees. The next morning the birds will fly north to the cool climes of Gunung Batur, where they will feed for the day. Although seeing large birds bend branches and shift between trees is an impressive sight, Bali’s herons are by no means the only noteworthy species among the archipelago’s extraordinary avifauna. Contained within the 4200-km-long land and sea territory of Indonesia are 17% of the world’s bird species. Of these, at least 100 species can be commonly found on the 5560-square-km island of Bali. As far as its fauna and geology are concerned, Bali is an offshore island of Java and its birdlife are very similar. But unlike Java, Bali’s bird population in the countryside has stabilized because fewer people are shooting and eating birds. The island’s most common species include birds with lyrical names as the Yellow-vented Bulbul, Olive-baked Sunbird, Javan Munia, Scaly-breasted Munia, White-bellied Swiflet, Striated Swallow, Cisticola, Bar-winged Prinia, Scarletheaded Flower pecker and the Javan Kingfisher. Beneficial birds include egrets and rice field warblers, which control many insect pests in this rice-dependent society. Around the island’s canals and ponds, congregations of white short-billed cattle egrets, snow-white plumed egrets and stately Javan pond herons arrive to roost for the night in the palms. The island’s rarest bird is the Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) or Bali Myna (Leucopsar rothschildi). This avian mascot of Bali boasts a white tail, a long, drooping crest and black tops on the wings and tails. Particularly distinctive are the blue bare skin surrounding its eyes, grayish legs and a yellow beak. For the best bird watching sites, take one of the island’s hundreds of narrow winding secondary roads which lead through traditional villages going about their everyday routines and rituals. It’s surprising how many of these small back roads are paved. The morning is the best time - the earlier the better – but even at 9 am you can still see numerous species. By 3 pm, the light is starting to fade and the birds are difficult to see.

Bratan and Tamblingan in the Bedugul area of Bali’s central highlands one can see hordes of small sunbirds, flower peckers, warblers and honeyeaters. Of the three lakes, the shores of Lake Tamblingan offer the most abundant ornithological surprises: woodpeckers, malkohas, babbler and ground-thrushes. In the vast grounds of the Kebon Raya Botanical Gardens as well as the surrounding forest borders and streambeds of nearby Bali Handara Gold Club are the habitats of myriad ground-thrashers, barbets and white-eyes. Unquestionably the great wilderness region of the National Park of West Bali (Taman Nasional Bali Barat) consisting of rainforest, scrub, savannah, coconut plantations, swamp and mangrove constitutes the richest habitats for a variety of wild bird species not seen elsewhere in Bali: pittas, tree swifts, hornbills, rollers and many other birds including the Bali Starling. Starting around the middle of October, you can catch the annual migration of such raptors as the sparrow hawks and honey-buzzards arriving from Java and heading in the direction of the southeast islands. Nusa Penida With a totally different climate, topography and vegetative cover, this offshore island southeast of Bali is basically a limestone outcrop inhabited by flora and fauna more similar to the islands of the southeast across the Wallace Line. Penida can be reached by regular boats either from Sanur or Kusambe, east of Klungkung. Affordable accommodations are located in Sampalan and Toyapakeh. Birdlife includes the red-chested flower pecker, white-faced herons and black-faced Munia. Here is also the best place to view thriving populations of white-tailed tropicbirds breeding on the south and southeastern cliffs of the island. Raptors such as hawks like Peregrine, Osprey and the white-bellied sea eagles, as well as hair-crested drongos, imperial pigeons, mangrove white-eyes, hair-crested and common koels. The island has been designated as an unofficial island-wide bird sanctuary by Friends of the National Parks Foundation (FNPF), which has released critically endangered Balinese and Indonesian bird species like the Java sparrow, Mitchell’s lorrikeet, lesser sulphur crested cockatoo and once nearextinct Bali Starling into the wild. Nusa Penida villagers actively protect their bird species, unanimously passing a local regulation in 2006 making it an offence to steal or threaten island birds. The Heronry of Petulu

Premier Birdwatching Sites One of the most beautiful area walks are the village paths leading off the road from Ubud to Tegalangan, looping around to Tampaksiring, then returning via Petulu. Another scenic country road are the lanes leading from the Luwus to Petang/Sangeh road - feels like a 100 miles away from Kuta. Wear sneakers, T-shirt and long trousers. Another suggested one-day birwatching tour takes you through a wide cross section of Balinese country life and culture: Ubud-Pejeng (the Moon of Pejeng, bronze drum)Gunung Kawi-Tampaksiring-Gunung Batur-Toyabungkah Hotsprings (on the lake)-through Jati to Sebatu-Gunung Kawi (another bath, cold)-Sebatu (better shopping than Tampaksiring), ending in Petulu for the sunset to see the white herons roost. A marvelous place to see birds are the interlacing walkways around Pura Luhur temple on the southern slopes of Gunung Batukaru in the Tabanan district of west Bali. Like a vast and well-tended botanical gardens, the confines of this huge temple complex are the habitat of less common birds such as barbets, minivets and fruit doves, but also a host of other more common birds like flower peckers and barbets. Around the mountains slope and thickets of lakes Buyun,

With a population of 4,500, mostly farmers, and 5000 herons, in Petulu village in the main rice-growing region of central Bali one can see grainfeeding munias, sparrows and white-bellied swiftlets. During the breeding season these tireless little birds build intricately woven nests in the tall grass and bushes. But the main draw of Petulu are the herons, which arrive, in the late afternoon to roost for the night. The birds began roosting here for the first time in 1966, just one month after an elaborate sacrificial ceremony petitioning for protection and blessings after the political butchering of thousands of “communists.” Many Balinese believe the herons embody the souls of the dead who have come to reunify the people of Petulu. Twice a year on Saniscara Kliwon Landep the villagers hold a special ceremony for these birds. Considered sacred, the herons (known collectively as kokokan) may not be disturbed while they roost. Only if they fall to earth or become caught in a tree may

they be captured and turned into a delectable treat wrapped in plantain leaf. The Bali Bird Park A walk through this 2-hectare park’s lavishly landscaped grounds, ponds and jungle grottoes are a special attraction for bird lovers. Located in Singapadu just 20 minutes north of Batubulan, turn left and descend 700 meters down a steep road to the parking lot. Get there in the cool of the mornings when the birds are the most active. After the entrance, check out the white board in front of the new arrivals facility for endangered species in the park’s comprehensive breeding program. The clever use of waterfalls, foliage and ponds gives the impression that you are strolling through a tropical rainforest rich in bird life. Accustomed to being around humans, cockatoos and parrots sit in the branches of trees and peacocks and cranes wander about unfettered. When I was there in the spring of 2013, I nearly tripped over a stray drongo and Mambruk pigeon. So well camouflaged are some birds that they are difficult to spot in their big cages. The cages hold amazingly colored macaws, followed by the dignified hornbills, mythological looking cassowaries with beady piercing eyes; eagles, small owls and wading pelicans amidst the burbling, warbling, drawling, mournful, harsh, hollow, guttural, plaintive, staccato and ecstatic cries of more than 1000 birds that comprise the park’s collection, a total of 250 species, including the only Hyacinth Macaw in Indonesia. From the restaurant, visitors are able to see birds of prey demonstrations. A mammoth leafy aviary is full of exotic species from New Guinea. Inside you can hear the sharp cries of the Bird of Paradise – a member of the jay family and the ghostly tremulous cries of other invisible birds from the canopy walk which is eye level with the treetops. The Greater Birds of Paradise is hand fed each day in the aviary at 9:30 am. Practicalities Petulu: From the roundabout in north Peliatan just before the west entrance to Ubud, continue north on the main road to Tampaksiring, which is lined with hundreds of shops selling woodcarvings, souvenirs, household wares and crafts. After four kilometers, look out for the sign on the left (west) to Petulu, which is about two kilometers, up a gradually rising narrow country road. Bali Bird Park: Jl.

How to Lighten Up! By Renee Thorpe ‘Brilliant!’ Possibly the most overused word of praise in the English language sprang from the mouths of many Ubud Writers & Readers Festival goers this year. Yet it was uttered with new life and meaning, the perfect word to sum up a stellar program. The tenth annual Ubud Writers and Readers Festival, with its reprisal of the first year’s theme, Through Darkness to Light, may well be remembered as shining with lightness like no other. A whimsical Michael Leunig cartoon is projected on the screen at Neka Museum. The capacity crowd bubbles with delight at the drawing of a duck leading a carefree traveler on some unknown path. The artist/philosopher quietly declares, ‘the world gets so grim and earnest and serious, we’ve forgotten the duckishness of it.’ Leunig’s love of naivete and innocence, with a puckish humor that cuts through complexity, charms an audience weary of so much gravity. On another day, teens learn the basics of standup comedy from pro Ernest Prakasa; a younger group of students take a workshop called Bag on Your Head – Green in Your Hands. The latter may be a sustainable shopping bag-making workshop, but to the youngsters, it’s pure fun. And fun was a running subtext this year. Memorable moments of whimsy and wonder include the little gem that was Jon Doust’s ode to his pumice. Those who walked along the street of monster art installations curated by Seniman Coffee Gallery could bask in the joy of unbridled community involvement. The audience at the Lotus Stage for Tribute Night was treated to the jaw-dropping, raucous, postmodern multimedia stage act by Badung’s Badalohor Cabaretainment troupe. It was impossible to not feel like a child again for those moments. By establishing a nearly week-long event in celebration of literature, creativity and ideas, festival Founder & Director Janet DeNeefe and her team have succeeded in getting us out of darkness and into light. Artists (e.g. Pat Grant) and writers (David Vann, for one) shared, in different sessions, how they shed their egos on the way to creating works of brilliance. We found rights activists and dedicated journalists (Lydia Cacho, Solahudin, Danny Morrison, and Mona Prince) emerging stronger and optimistic after persecution and torture that failed to break their spirit. Beauty, innocence, and optimism were oft-heard words every day of the festival. Through Darkness to Light is excerpted from a 1902 letter written by Raden Ajeng Kartini, arguably Indonesia’s first modern feminist. In honor of her writings, a women’s literature sub-theme wove its way into each day. There were more panels about women than ever before, most of the books launched were by women authors, and even the women’s gamelan of Peliatan entertained dignitaries and glitterati who opened the festival. Most moderators made sure to remind audiences and featured writers that the festival was founded as a positive reaction to the Bali bomb of 2002. Rather than being a

reference point to dwell upon long and hard, the bomb, at long last, seemed more like a conjured scrap of ancient history. Perhaps Bali is concluding that dark chapter and writing her future as an island of peace, creativity, freedom, and environmental conservation. Still in progress at press time, the Festival highlights we can report include illuminating film shows, art exhibitions and installations, slams, conversations, workshops for all ages, and the many parties which are a hallmark of the UWRF experience. In her introduction of the keynote speaker, Janet mentioned her love of a good party, and of great conversation. Getting connected is a huge part of the festival, and the delight of new friendships was found in surprising places. A Congolese novelist won over a South African editor at one of the deliriously buoyant dinner events. Young local publishers of ‘zines and graphic novels took pride of place at Taman Baca, a space evolving as both agora and quiet break zone for networking. That middle-aged lady to one’s left turned out to be an expert in that country calling out to be visited. Lofty inspirations were borne within a crowd who attended a discussion on young adult fiction. The parties were so much more than opportunities to cut loose. Art and compassion spiced up every free evening event. Canadian Daniel Ziv, debuting at UWRF in 2004 as a published photographer of the underground facets of Bangkok and Jakarta, returned a conquering hero. He screened his award-winning documentary film Jalanan at the Blanco Museum, to explosive applause and cheers. His subjects, the three buskers Titi, Boni, and Ho, leapt to the Blanco stage and took a bow to their new-found global audience.

The relationship of the writer and the reader was often a topic of discussion. Returning writer Richard Flanagan said to Michael Cathcart that a writer has got to respect his reader. Headliner Sebastian Faulks (Birdsong, Engleby, et al) told Nury Vittachi that he himself likes to read writers from whom he can learn things, and said, ‘once you start reading, a different dynamic occurs. It’s a triangular process. I think of the reader as an intelligent person involved with me. I’m behind the back of the character, driving them to do these things! The reader must think, “oh, this writer’s a bastard!”’ And we love you for it, Sebastian! Active dialogue was also important to illustrators who collaborate with an author. Germany’s Barbara Yelin likened it to playing tennis. ‘It takes a lot of discussing the sometimes very different opinions, and then we both find out more about the story,’ she told one audience. In the same session, she said that creativity comes from having fun with (and passion for) the subject. The creative process was discussed, explored, and revered. But that will have to be a future installment of this column. The tenth UWRF was rich and diverse, brimming with stories impossible to impart in one little article. On closing day, Janet called the week ‘a glowing success’. And the afterglow will surely sustain writers and readers in the coming months and perhaps years. Thank you, Mudra Swari Sarasati Foundation! Let’s all get back together in 2014! The 10th Ubud Writers & Readers Festival was held from 11-15 October, 2013. C/U/G-02 Oct. 13

FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT Yes, the 10th Ubud Writers and Readers Festival was certainly the best so far. The literary highlight for me was a conversation called “Through Darkness to Light” about surviving grief, loss and tragedy. It was an extraordinary session, recorded live for ABC Radio in Australia, with David Vann, who survived growing up in a family with five suicides and a murder; “boat person” Carina Hoang, now in Western Australia’s Hall of Fame as one of the country’s most inspiring and courageous women, and Iranian kidnap victim Kooshyar Karimi.

YOGA ABOUT WOMEN Six hours of helpful training for individuals, yoga teachers and health professionals, Leisa Baldwin’s early November workshop at the Yoga Barn focused on “honouring the Monthly cycle” and other aspects of yoga for women.


Saturday, November 2, 9-11am, 3-5pm, and Sunday Nov 3, 9-11am. Really reasonably priced at 750,000rp for the trio or 250,000rp a session. Only a few spaces left: book at Yoga Barn 0361 971 236.

Personally though, I loved the African element. As part of Bar Luna’s Offbeat Program, African American hip-hop artist Kamau Bakari Abayomi, Zimbabwe’s poet and writer Thando Sibanda and Burkina Faso’s percussionist and singer, Lasso Ouattara put together one of the finest evenings I’ve ever seen. As if they had known each other all their lives instead of only two hours, these three weaved laughter, music and tragic tales into a mesmerizing evening. Of Zimbabwe’s independence struggles - “they mutilated our mothers’ breasts so that their children would not know the strength of mothers’ milk. Of black America, where political interests have supported gangster rap, introducing drugs, guns and music with tough, vicious lyrics to further destabilize groups of marginalized young black men. And from Burkina Faso, West Africa, the world’s third poorest country, where life is often very tough “but we always smile”, Lasso gave us music and some wonderful “call and response” singing where – surprisingly, I thought – absolutely everyone present joined in. There was a special kind of magic about these three black “brothers with different mothers”. JALAN MONSTER Now you see him, now you don’t! Coming from Australia, where fear of sharks was already strong before that awful “jaws” movie series, it’s great to know that we can swim in the ocean without fear of losing a limb. Then last week, the dreaded white pointer shark appeared in – of all places – Ubud, but not where it could hurt anyone. Instead, as the most visible sign of Ubud’s first Public Arts Festival, “Jalan Monster”, this bamboo-woven monster hung overhead on Jl Sriwedari, overlooking the Smile Shop and just up the road from a horde of monstrous eyeballs swathed in bright Balinese temple material. The proprietors of Seniman Café and others on that little stretch have been muttering about “public art” and “street art” for some time now. They’ve discussed how to find sponsorship of community murals for the walls of some of the big and uninspiring house walls that lead north out of Ubud. So it was great to see that this little festival came together, piggy-backing on the Writers Festival and moving their discussions into the public arena. Congratulations to all involved.

Leisa is an outstanding Iyengar yoga teacher based in Darwin; in these three practical two-hour sessions, she encourages women to use yoga to help regulate their hormones, reduce anxiety, relieve stress and nurture themselves.

GALUNGAN FESTIVITIES It’s Balinese celebration time again; is it really only 210 days since last Galungan and Kuningan? I love this time of year when the streets are so vibrant and colourful. Here’s a test for visitors and ex-pats alike. What are the essential elements that must be included in the creation of a penjor, that magnificent bamboo hanging decoration that is draped elegantly outside every Hindu compound or business? The first one to write into me at, listing all the correct elements (what) with the correct reason for the element’s inclusion in the penjor (why), will win a dinner for two at a new and yummy Ubud restaurant.

MOUTHWATERING MULBERRIES Yippee, it’s that season again! You can buy fresh, organic berries at 25,000rp for 250 grams (how is that price even possible). Available Saturdays at the Farmers Market outside Pizza Bagus, and every day at Jus Ja Cafe on Jl Dewi Sita.

Shirodhara is the Ayurvedic treatment that involves warm oil being poured onto the 6th

Chakra [third eye] in the centre of your forehead. It is done in complete silence and is a most relaxing experience. Ayurvedic is a traditional hindu system of medicine. Its history goes back centuries and it has had an effect on almost every other system of medicine. Ayurvedic is a Sanskrit word derived from two roots: ayur which means life and veda knowledge. Prana Spa is one of Bali’s few spas specializing in Ayurvedic treatments. It is separate to but a part of The Villas, Bali’s first ever villa complex on Jln. Kunti, Seminyak. Prana also offers a wide variety of other spa treatments and packages, but it is the Shirodhara [pictured] treatment that is the most unusual.

Boreh is one of the very few traditional Balinese spa treatments. It is traditionally found in the

rice growing areas of Bali, the warm potent spices of the Boreh paste were blended at night by the mother and applied as a warm healing pack on family members who spent their entire day in the rice paddies. Many different herbs and spices are combined to make this paste but usually include cloves, ginger, pepper and nutmeg. A paste is made, consisting of these different ingredients and is spread over your body and left for 15-20 minutes, then scraped off. The main aim is to remove all of the dead skin from your body. You can experience the Balinese Boreh body scrub at most Balinese operated spas throughout the island, from the most luxurious down to the small local salon.

Lembah Spa is a spa with a view. It sits atop the ridge at the Lembah Valley, part of the luxury The Viceroy villa complex in Nagi village, north-east of Ubud. Lembah Spa offers a wide range of spa treatments and in particular specialize in Intraceutical Facials. Intraceuticals products, as endorsed by Madonna and other Hollywood stars as the ultimate facial treatment, where nature is often unkind to skin. Intraceuticals works extremely well when applied via an oxygen therapy machine to reach deep down into the lower epidermis layers so repair is accelerated. Treatments vary according to your skin condition and what problem you want to attack. Because Intraceuticals is an international company Lembah Spa also sells their follow up maintenance products so you can continue the program at home, Intraceuticals products are available also in most countries through beauticians, cosmetic clinics and dermatologists.

Body Tonic Spa is at the new impressive The Lovina Bali, and brings a new level of professionalism to Bali’s north coast. Unlike many small salons in the north Body Tonic Spa offer a full range of massage types [Balinese, Thai, Lomi-Lomi, Warm Stone, etc.] body scrubs and baths. Most popular here are their half and full day packages that combine massage, scrubs, baths and facials. At the completion of the half day package and midway through the full day package you also enjoy a 30 minute healthy meal from their special spa menu. Any individual treatment taken between 9.00 a.m. and midday qualifies for a 20% discount from the already quite low rates. Colon Hydrotherapy is sometimes referred to as Colonic Irrigation. It is is a safe, clean

and relaxing method of removing toxins and waste from the colon or large intestine. The colon is a repository of all the accumulated waste in the body and research has shown this can be one of the greatest causes of serious health conditions. Colon hydrotherapy use tubes to inject water mixed with herbs or with other liquids, into the colon via the rectum using special equipment. It is believed that accumulations of putrefied feces line the walls of the large intestine and that these accumulations harbor parasites or pathogenic gut flora causing nonspecific symptoms and general ill-health. A select number of spas in Bali offer Colon Hydrotherapy and they normally suggest a program of 3-5 sessions spread over a 5-10 day period, the treatment is priced accordingly. Most prefer to have this treatment at one of the high-tech spas. Spa Sentosa in the central Kerobokan Sentosa Villa Complex is one such spa that offers this treatment.

Reflexology is a treatment loved by some and avoided by others, particularly those who find


that the feet are way too sensitive to the touch. Reflexology is a natural healing art, based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet and hands which correspond to every part of the body. By stimulating and applying pressure to the feet and hands, you are increasing circulation and promoting specific bodily and muscular functions. Kevin Kunz, one of the pioneers of reflexology stated: “Imagine stepping on a tack. Your whole body reacts because of something perceived by the foot. Reflexology with a full range of pressure sensors, utilizes the same body system of flight or fight to relax the body.”. Indeed the feet and hands are more sensitive than most people realise. Similar to how we use our eyes to detect light, the hands and the feet detect pressure, stretch, movement and weight distribution. Reflexology is available at almost every spa in Bali as well as at special Reflexology salons.

Milano Spa is found down a small lane [gang] off Jln. Monkey Forest, just before the Ubud

football ground. Amazingly when the then young Javanese hairdresser, Paris, opened Milano 20 years ago it was only Ubud’s 2nd spa. Now there are more than 200 in Ubud and the surrounding area. Milano has not changed much just minor upgrades to the rooms every ten years or so. They offer technically correct spa and hair treatments at very budget prices [$8 for one hour massage, manicure or pedicure for example…recently in Sydney I saw a spa advertising a special promo of a combined manicure and pedicure for the amazing $A85, what a difference!]. Milano employs both young male and female therapists and as with most places that offer value for money service, they are always busy, low season as well as high, massage with a smile. Even though Milano is a budget location all therapy rooms are private with correct massage beds and hot shower, some also with bath for those relaxing flower baths.

Vaginal Smoking is sometimes referred to in the USA as Venus Smoke and often included in a Balinese Beauty Package. In fact it is not Balinese in origin but an ancient Javanese custom where women go a ‘secret place’ to beautify and rejuvenate their bodies prior to weddings and other special occasions. Available in some of the up-market spas in Bali but is normally found in any of Javanese origin such as the Martha Tilaar spas, and other spas with Javanese management. Many of the small salons in the Denpasar/Renon area include this treatment in their spa menu. The woman sits naked in a chair with a hole in the seat while a bowl of seeds and herbs is burned under the hole. The smoke that wafts up into her vagina is meant to stimulate and disinfect the region.

eauty & Health by Shari


Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. George Eliot Every time someone gets a camera in their hands and points it at someone, they automatically say “Smile”. We all would like to have a bright healthy looking smile to show the world, however many people feel embarrassed to display their damaged teeth and hide their smile behind their hand or simply keep their mouth shut. Have you ever had a toothache? It’s one of the most painful things to endure because it’s in your head and you simply can’t ignore it. What do you do? Take a painkiller or rush off to a dentist? A drug may disguise the pain but you know you have a problem. Ignoring it will only exacerbate the problem, causing further damage. You know you need to see a dentist. Almost everybody hates going to a dentist. They invade your personal space, crawl into your mouth with their fingers and tools and usually cause discomfort or pain. What’s there to like? They don’t even use drugs that make you feel good. Well the kiddies still get laughing gas. Consequently, many people avoid going to the dentist for all of the above fear based reasons. If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say “I hate dentists” I’d be a very rich person. Oddly, most people don’t have the same fear of doctors as dentists. Maybe that’s because of all the TV shows with handsome doctors or the villain dentists in movies including the sadist Nazi in Marathon Man or Steve Martin as the sadistic dentist in Little Shop of Horrors. Fortunately I was born with good teeth and was taken to the dentist for regular check-ups from a young age. Not everyone was taught good dental hygiene as a child or families couldn’t afford dentists and as a result now as an adult have spent small fortunes on repairing their teeth. Dr. Indra Guizot, owner of Bali 911 Dental Clinic told me that many Australians are coming to Bali to have their entire teeth replaced with implants and bridges because the cost is a fraction of what they would pay at home. Three of his dentists specialize in implants, which requires additional education abroad and is one of their most popular treatments. Dr. Guizot began his dental practice in 1968 when he was sent to Bali to look after the teeth of the military personnel and opened his own clinic in 1970. After 15 years of military service he continued with his dental practice in Denpasar. He studied his specialty implants in Cuba. His new modern clinic in Denpasar has rooms for 11 dentists and another 6 at the clinic at Bali Galleria. Everything has been outfitted with the latest high tech equipment, including a laser for whitening the teeth and Zoom with peroxide. 911 services include any dental problem from simple cleaning to full mouth rehabilitation and cosmetic dentistry. They also promise no waiting list, just walk in for a treatment. Bali 911 Jl. Patimura no. 9-11,

Denpasar Tel 0361-249749 or Mall Bali Galleria Tel 0361-766254 Bali International Dental Center is basically a family run clinic with Dr. Sucipto Husada, his wife and two brothers plus three additional dentists on staff. This clinic has long been a favourite with ex-pats (me included) for many years.

C/He/G-30 Oct. 13

Dr. Sucipto comes from Solo but was invited to be a lecturer at a university in Bali in 1990 after he graduated and opened his clinic in 1991. When I asked him why he became a dentist he replied, “Coincidence. My father was a doctor and I also wanted to be a doctor, but I was accepted into dental school first. My mother encouraged me to continue in dental and by the third year I knew this is where my talent is.” Sucipto continued his studies to become an expert in implants at UCLA in the USA. He only handles the difficult dental procedures and implants and leaves the general dentistry work to the other six. They can handle any dental problem from cosmetic dentistry to Smile Bright whitening. At the end of October the clinic will move down the street into new beautiful, modern and spacious facilities.

For Ubud residents visit Sayan Aesthetic Institute Dental and & Medical Spa. I have been recommended by several friends in the area that this is the best dental clinic in Ubud. www. Tel: 0361-972648 A relatively new dental center in Seminyak is Ultimo where I experienced teeth whitening with Dr. Nitri. A translucent bleaching gel was applied to my teeth with the addition of a UV light to activate. The process was done in two 20 minute sessions, leaving the teeth remarkably whiter. A word of caution for those with sensitive teeth, take a pain-killer prior to the treatment because the teeth will be very sensitive for a day. The two female dentists can handle all of your dental problems from fillings to dental implants. Located next to McDonalds in Seminyak. www. Tel: 0361- 8947523 The advice I got from all the dentists is to have a regular check-up and cleaning every six months to prevent future problems. Brush and floss every day. After eating rice it’s important to brush your teeth to remove the plaque. Most important is to not delay seeing a dentist if you experience any pain or sensitivity in the teeth or gums. Avoiding the dentist out of fear will only make matters worse. Beware of using sodium fluoride (which is toxic), that affects the pituitary gland, the master control of the endocrine system. The adverse effects of fluoride can cause sleep problems, thyroid imbalance and closing of the third eye. We are lucky to not have fluoride in our drinking water but numerous toothpastes use it. Look for a fluoride free toothpaste or use baking soda or sea-salt. Copyright spa inspirations 2013 For clinics and spas offering new treatments contact me for an upcoming story.

This column started out as a story about the drought before the big rains arrive in Bali. I thought we might be in for a longer dry period. But maybe by the time you read this we’ll all be up to our ankles in monsoon. It can be hard to tell. Clouds roll in, humidity spikes, then nothing happens. There may be teasing showers, so light that they barely wet the grass. Or a good, soaking overnight rain that refreshes the garden and makes us wonder, is this it? Have the rains arrived? Nope. More weeks of parching drought. After 25 years in the tropics I will go on record with this breath- taking observation - it’s either too wet or too dry, and it’s almost always too hot. (It’s a mystery why so many of us Celtic types with our pale freckle skins are drawn to live here instead of under the dark skies heavy with freezing rain in bleak northern latitudes – wait, I think I just figured it out.) I built my little house in Ubud back in 2002, and moved in at the beginning of July. I don’t think it rained until November that year. The earth in the garden cracked into jagged mosaics. The dogs lay panting every afternoon, bellies plastered against the cool tiles of the patio. Even the large trees seemed to slump in the hot, unmoving air. Lying in bed at night I imagined I could hear every plant in the jungle sighing for rain. When it came it roared around in squalls, fell in ropes, bounced a metre off the hard earth. Dry leaves and shed snake skins surged out of the gutters. Gusts of wind blew rain horizontally into the patio. It was impossible to light the gas stove in the outdoor kitchen. One extreme to the other. After 13 years as a householder in Ubud, I am still learning how to live with the unpredictable elements.

In case you’re new to the developing world, here’s how to flush the loo when the water metre stops spinning. Take the top off the toilet tank at the back and fill it from a bucket, then flush as usual. Once you’ve dragged a few heavy (and messy) buckets of water through the house you’ll probably decide to flush as seldom as possible, so save up the payload and keep the lid down in between. If you have multiple toilets in the house, just use one for the duration. Guys should be encouraged to pee outside in the garden where it will do some good. Compost heaps love the nitrogen in urine and so do citrus trees. When Peter came to stay with me for a month I encouraged him to water the lemon tree, and that year I harvested about 50 big juicy lemons instead of the usual dozen small, dry ones. When the water’s off we only wash dishes once a day, storing dirty dishes in the sink or a plastic tub sprayed with vinegar to keep the ants away. If you use a plastic tub, then you can use the dishwater on the garden. And don’t just fling it any old where, pour it carefully around the roots of treasured plants. They love soap.

And for a comprehensive overview of Bali’s current water woes, please read /2013/ water_crisis.html by Polly Christensen. That’s the big picture, and it’s a discouraging one. As development continues unchecked and tourist arrivals continue to climb, Bali’s already finite water supply is increasingly under stress. Half of the island’s rivers have dried up in the last 10 years. My Australian friends in Ubud are particularly conscious of water conservation because they often live with drought. I learned some good tricks from them. My staff was puzzled when I bought a huge rainwater catchment tank after moving into the house. They pointed out that during the wet season there was no point collecting water because it was falling out of the sky all the time. But it’s handy to have a place to stash water in any season. It’s been a good investment. I use collected rainwater to water the garden and top up the fish pond. When the rainwater’s finished, we fill the tank, over a few days, with piped water so we always have a supply if the taps run dry. We’ve learned to keep that extra tank full no matter what the season; there can be interruptions in the water supply at any time. Even when rain is pouring out of the sky and off the eaves, distribution problems can interrupt the delivery of piped water. And we go through quite a lot of the stuff on any given day flushing toilets, watering plants, doing laundry, washing dishes, washing selves.

Keep showers brief, or shower with your partner and your dog. Ideally water from the shower and all the basins in the house will leach into the garden instead of going into the septic tank. Be strategic in the garden in the dry season. Don’t water the grass at all; it will die back when it’s dry, then surge up again when the rains start. (It should be a crime to water grass when farmers don’t have enough water for their crops.) Water plants deeply at the roots, then pile mulch around the stem or trunk to retain the moisture. Mulch can be rice straw, which is plentiful at the moment, cardboard, newspaper or leaves. This creates a warm, moist environment and prevents evaporation. The thicker the mulch, the less often you’ll have to water. When the earth around the roots does dry out, water under the mulch, not on top of it. Mulch fruit trees, bushes, shrubs, tomato plants --- any plant with shallow roots. Remove mulch when the rains start. The water in fish ponds evaporates quickly in the dry season and if the pond is too shallow and the water gets too warm, your fish might poach. Make sure you have floating pond plants covering at least 70% of the surface to slow evaporation and keep the water cool. When they cover too much surface area, pull some out and use it as mulch in the garden. Remind your staff not to waste water washing the sidewalks with the that during the wet hose.

Before climate change brought so much unseasonal rain to Bali in the past few years, the weather we’ve been experiencing recently was the norm. It can be very dry indeed between July and November or December. The water supplies of many Balinese communities often dry up. We They pointed out in Ubud are privileged; season there was no point collecting because it’s a touristdestination few years ago you could we’re usually spared water water because it was falling out of the Acount the number of private and electricity shortages sky all the time swimming pools in Ubud on the that occur else-where.

That was nine years ago, but if the rains understand there are many options these days. are delayed it could happen again. I probably turn on a water tap in the house a dozen times a day to rinse my hands, wash the carrots, clean the dishes, wipe down the counter. It was quite interesting to observe my own reaction the first time I turned on a tap and nothing came out. We assume water will always be available but many -maybe most -- people in the world don’t have the luxury of running water in their own homes. It’s rather good for the character to have to think about water for a few days. See html for a sense of what it’s like when the taps run dry in Ubud.

Where do all the creatures disappear to in the dry season? There must be a parallel universe to which wildlife retires in the long dry weeks before the rain sets in. The usually abundant toads vanish for months and then after the first heavy rain explode into exuberant, deafening honks in all the ponds. Exquisite tree frogs pose on the shower walls and tuck themselves into my shoes. The Asian box turtle that lives at large in the garden isn’t seen for months and then when the rains begin clunks blissfully around the borders, domed shell gleaming. Bali Reptile Rescue seems busy collecting cobras and kraits from the gardens of anxious householders these days, but I seldom see the usually plentiful green pit vipers in my garden during the dry season.

Too dry, too wet… some of Bali’s water woes could quickly be balanced if every household and hotel practiced conservation and captured large amounts of rainwater. The least we can do is respect water and not take it for granted. So many people in this world scramble for every drop.

IT’S MOVEMBER! Prostate Cancer Awareness Month “Movember” is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, and is housed at The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.” By encouraging men or “Mo Bros” to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides getting an annual check-up, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of any family history of cancer, and to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Several community groups and schools around the Island have become “Mo-Bros” over the past few years, and raise money for various charities. Good on you guys! The PROSTATE GLAND The prostate is an exocrine gland of the male reproductive system, and exists directly under the bladder, in front of the rectum. An exocrine gland is one whose secretions end up outside the body e.g. prostate gland and sweat glands. It is approximately the size of a walnut. The urethra - a tube that goes from the bladder to the end of the penis and carries urine and semen out of the body - goes through the prostate. When a male climaxes (has an orgasm) contractions force the prostate to secrete this fluid into the urethra and leave the body through the penis. The cells in the prostate gland also produce a protein called PSA (prostate-specific antigen). Urine control As the urethra goes through the prostate: the prostate gland is also involved in urine control with the use of prostate muscle fibers. These muscle fibers in the prostate contract and release, controlling the flow of urine flowing through the urethra. Prostate Cancer In the vast majority of cases, the prostate cancer starts in the gland cells - this is called adenocarcinoma. In this article, prostate cancer refers just to adenocarcinoma. Prostate cancer is mostly a very slow progressing disease. In fact, many men die of old age, without ever knowing they had prostate cancer - it is only when an autopsy is done that doctors know it was there. Several studies have indicated that perhaps about 80% of all men in their eighties had prostate cancer when they died, but nobody knew, not even the doctor. During the early stages of prostate cancer there are usually no symptoms. Most men at this stage find out they have prostate cancer after a routine check up or blood test. When symptoms do exist, they are usually one or more of the following: Waking frequently at night to urinate Sudden or urgent need to urinate Difficulty in starting to urinate Slow flow of urine and difficulty in stopping Discomfort when urinating Painful ejaculation Blood in the urine or semen Decrease in libido (sex urge) Reduced ability to get an erection Nobody is really sure of what the specific causes are. There are so many possible factors, including age, race, lifestyle, medications, and genetics, to name a few. • Age - Prostate cancer is rare among men under the age of 45, but much more common after the age of 50.

• Genetics - In the USA prostate cancer is significantly more common and also more deadly among AfroAmericans than White-Americans. Men with a family history (brother / father) have an increased risk. If a man carries the BRCA gene he is also at higher risk. • Diet - One study suggests that men with low risk prostate cancer found that following an intensive healthy diet and lifestyle regime focusing on low meat and high vegetable and fruit intake, regular exercise, yoga stretching, meditation and support group participation, can alter the way that genes behave and change the progress of cancer. Other studies have indicated that lack of vitamin D & a diet high in red meat may raise a person’s chances of developing prostate cancer. • Medication- Some studies say there might be a link between the daily use of anti-inflammatory medicines and prostate cancer risk. A study found that statins, which are used to lower cholesterol levels, may lower a person’s risk of developing prostate cancer. • Obesity - Another study found a clear link between obesity and raised prostate cancer risk, as well as a higher risk of metastasis and death among obese people who develop prostate cancer. • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) Men who have had gonorrhea have a higher chance of developing prostate cancer. TESTING FOR PROSTATE CANCER The PSA The PSA blood test looks for the presence in the blood of a protein that is produced specifically by prostate cells called Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). The presence of an elevated PSA does not necessarily mean prostate cancer is present as there are other medical conditions that can lead to a PSA result outside the normal range. The DRE The DRE involves the doctor inserting a gloved finger in the anus, where it is possible to feel part of the surface of the prostate. Irregularities include swelling or hardening of the prostate, or lumps on the surface that may indicate development of a tumour, or other problems. The drawback to this test is that the doctor can feel only part of the prostate, so may miss irregularities beyond reach. Biopsy A biopsy is a small tissue sample taken with a spring-loaded needle. This normally conducted by a urologist. The DRE and the PSA are advisable as an annual prevention screen in all men over 50 years of age. While these tests are a little painful and perhaps embarrassing, they may save a lot more pain and heartache in the future. So to all you men out there, be aware and grow your hair!

Supplement, Yes….. but advisedly.

In an ideal world we would get all the nutrients we need from the food around us. Hence the popularity of various ”Paleo Diets”. For us to live healthy lives of decent duration it makes sense for us to eat fresh natural food that gives us the vitamins and minerals we need. If we cannot, why then it makes sense to selectively supplement. To some extent how we do this is up to us, but in many ways the choice lies beyond our control. The Paleolithic era started some 2.6 million years ago and ended around 9,000 BC, when some of us became farmers. In theory, given that our Paleolithic ancestors got the food they needed, it was and is probably the best diet going. In any event, if there were nutrient deficiencies due to location or circumstances, there was little to be done about it. So back then the main occupation of Paleolithic man and woman was feeding themselves. They hunted, they gathered, etc. The rest was bringing up the kids and downtime I guess. No nine-to-five jobs for them. It must have been nice when the sun shone and all was plentiful and at peace. But overall…. it couldn’t have been that great or we’d still be doing it. Contrast that to the year 2013 of our Common Era. We have thrived and huge numbers of us live in a very complex world. Hunting and gathering isn’t an option. Convenience rules and our food chain is industrialized. The price we pay for such astronomic levels of production is that our food is in large part de-natured and fouled. A process that has accelerated alarmingly in the past sixty years. To eat as the Paleolith did today, if it were possible, would be time consuming and very expensive. Nonetheless some of us do what we can, seeking out real food where we can.

Today it’s “Paleo Plus” Which brings us to supplementation. But before that, a word on pharmaceutical drugs. They are to be avoided, except when we need them. By and large they do not cure anything, they alleviate symptoms. Over time they cause other symptoms. If you don’t believe me, consider the worrying fact that 50% of new drugs in the US are withdrawn after 6 years. Do not overrule your doctor on the subject, but they are not things you should take for long periods of time. Humans are adapted to getting nutrients from whole foods. Most nutrients require enzymes, synergistic cofactors and organic minerals for absorption. While these are naturally present in foods (at least in Paleolithic times) they are often not included in synthetic vitamins with isolated nutrients. In short get your nutrients from food whenever you can. There are five key nutrients that no matter how well we eat are hard to obtain from diet alone. These are literally the substances on which life and wellbeing depend.

First off, what does the number 30 tell you? It’s a month’s supply, right? So for a start my product lasts three times longer. Not only that, milligram for milligram my CoQ10 is seven times cheaper. It doesn’t end there. You don’t deliver CoQ10 in tablet form. It doesn’t get absorbed. Finally, there are various forms of CoQ10, some more effective than others. You can safely assume that even if kosher (the label was a well known one) the $9.00 CoQ10 is using the cheapest ingredients possible. Lastly, you should know that the therapeutic dose of CoQ10 is 60 to 300 mg p/day. Now let’s take herbs. I could go out into a field someplace and cut me a cartload of stinging nettles. Dry them, cut and grind them up into a powder and put 240mg of it into 30 capsules and flog it to you by the bottle for $24, handsomely packaged as Urtica Dioica (stinging nettle), whose active ingredient improves prostate function. The operative word is ‘active ingredient’ and there’d be precious little of that in the 10 gm or so of powder you’d bought from my cartload of nettles. Ginkgo Biloba is a known cognition enhancer. I can buy 365 capsules of 250mg, a year’s supply, for $34 of top quality. Or, I could be conned into paying the same amount for 30 expensively blister-packed caps of unknown provenance containing excess amounts of ginkgolic acid, which is what you don’t want being the toxic part of the leaf. In an industry now approaching $40 billion p.a. and not well regulated some fraud is to be expected and supplements are an easy mark. By far the greatest number of brands on the market, however, about 75%, comprise low cost, low dose, high margin expensively packaged and intensively marketed products. Smart marketing has never been against the law, but in large part these goods are therapeutically useless. Low quality ingredients, sub-optimally formulated and in dosages too low to do any good, particularly with the complex formulations. Not all high street brands are bad, some are good if you stick to single ingredient products and know what you’re doing.

Prevention is the Smart Way

I make a practice of buying ‘practitioner only’ brands. Not because there are no villains in this sector (there are) but because pretty soon you come to know which companies provide cost-effective products and who jealously guard their therapeutic reputation in the market. Here in Bali some other factors need to be taken into account. Rancidity being If nothing else, consider supplementing with Vitamin A one. Oils and powders can and do go rancid quickly if not (Retinol) 10,000 to 15,000 IU p/day; Vitamin D 2,000 to transported or stored correctly. Rancid products don’t just 5,000 IU p/day; Vitamin K2, c. 1,000 mcg; Magnesium, 400 taste unpleasant, they send oxidants coursing through your to 800 mg p/day; and Vitamin C, 500 to 1,000mg, several body, which is one of the things you are spending good grams if facing chronic health challenge or infection. Other money to avoid. key substances to consider are selenium (200 mcg) and iodine (75 mcg). Take care with iodine though, too much And what about cold chain supply? There’s really no point in swallowing 30 bilion strains of dead bacteria, who have long can trigger autoimmune diseases. since expired before you get to buy them from the freezer in Over and above this it’s up to you, what you know, how old a health store. Until I found a supplier whose cold chain you are, what you need and what you can afford. supply I could trust I always bought my probiotics freezeRemember, prevention will save you a swagload of money dried (it works 80%). and quite likely your life. If you know what you are doing and are well advised, Weasel Ways supplements can and do play a significant part in preventing and treating chronic disease. There is no clear line between In my case I take active nutritional steps against the early the nutritional and allopathic approach to medicine and we stages of cardiovascular disease and to maintain prostate are left to make our own way as best we can. Alas, we are health. I take probiotics and Omega 3 fatty acids and given not always well served by our doctors when attempting to my memory lapses I tweak things a bit with some cognitive plot our course and we remain prey to hucksters and enhancement. You can easily spend anything between charlatans along the way. We must however continue to try. US$500 to $5,000 p.a. on supplements and do it very Abdication is not a viable option. effectively with either sum. Or, or you can just as easily throw it away. It depends on what you know. So here’s ParacelsusAsia’s quick run-around-the block how to buy smart and not get stiffed. Let’s start with three examples. CoQ10 is a vital component of mitochondrial function. It is not cheap and there are many ways for manufacturers to shortchange you. I buy 100 soft gels of CoQ10 containing 100mg at a cost of US$46. I take one-a-day. In a health store I see a label selling 30 tablets of 10mg of CoQ10 at $9.00 and the recommended dosage is also 1 p/day. So which product would you buy?

A Bunch of great computer hints HINTS, HINTS, and more HINTS

C/CI/G-4 Sept. 13

* Don’t let a spilled drink ruin your laptop. If you keep your cool when a spill occurs, you may be able to prevent your data from disappearing and your motherboard from frying. Instead of panicking, quickly but methodically unplug the power cord and yank out the battery--don’t wait for Windows to power off. Next, detach anything connected to the PC (network cables, USB devices) and pull out any readily removable components such as an optical drive. Tilt the laptop to try to drain the liquid in the direction that it spilled onto your PC, but be careful--you don’t want to tilt the laptop in a direction that would allow the liquid to seep even deeper in. If you see liquid on the surface of the laptop, dab it off with a towel. At this point, unless you’re comfortable disassembling your PC and cleaning it with electronics cleaner, you’ll probably want to take it to a tech. * Clear your system tray. Apps often park themselves in the system tray (the row of icons on the right side of your taskbar) and stay open without your realizing it. Take the time to clear it out occasionally. Open the Notification Area Icons control panel, and check the box on the bottom that says Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar to get a sense of how cluttered your system tray is; then right-click each one you don’t need and choose Close. Your RAM will thank you.

C/CI/I-06 March 13

* Creating GREAT (and easy to remember) passwords: Come up with a short phrase you’re likely to remember. Just like in school, it helps to make your mnemonic really bizarre—the stranger the phrase, the easier it’ll be to remember. For example, Kim Kardashian is the most amazing woman in all 50 states, or Mitt Romney and Barack Obama decided to make 10 waffles. Notice that my phrases use a mix of capitalized and lowercase words, and I added some numbers as well. To make a password, just take the first letter of each word in your phrase. The sentences above would turn into KKit mawia50s and MRaBOdtm10w. Both of those passwords are extremely strong—they’re long, and they’re free of common English words that can be guessed by a computer. You can generate different passwords for different sites by varying your phrase slightly for each one. The phrase LinkedIn is terrible at securing its passwords so it’s my 10th favorite social network will create a password for LinkedIn (LIitasipsim10fsn) as well as for Twitter (Titasipsim9fsn), Facebook, MySpace, and on and on. OR The new, even better way to fix your terrible passwords (which sadly doesn’t work everywhere): Start with the same method as above—choose a short, memorable phrase. And that’s it. Instead of turning the phrase into a one-word password, just use the whole phrase as your password. For instance, Mitt loves when Barack makes waffles. That’s a memorable phrase. It’s also an extremely strong password just by itself—stronger, even, than a password made up of that phrase’s initial letters. Instead of shortening the phrase, just type the whole thing in as your password. That’s easier than typing a jumble of symbols and uppercase and lowercase letters, and it’s easier to remember, too. * Double Space a Document in 2 Keystrokes If you create a lot of documents, invariably, you will use the double-space formatting for either a paragraph of an entire document at some point.

Instead of going into the Paragraph menu to format the text, give this a try: • Select the text you want to change (or use Ctrl-A to Select All) • Press the Ctrl+2 to double-space • Press the Ctrl+5 to 1.5 space • Press the Ctrl+1 to return to single-space * How to Batch Rename Files in Windows If you are an avid digital photographer, you know that your camera automatically assigns useless file names to your pictures as they are taken. If you want to rename lots of pictures from the same session of vacation as a group so that they become easier to identify later Windows Explorer has a quick, built-in way to rename multiple files at once, although it’s pretty well hidden. First, locate the files you want to rename and place them in the same folder. Use the columns at the top of the list in details view to order the files how you’d like them, like by date – Windows Explorer will number the files starting from the top at the list. Select all the files you want to rename, right-click the first one and select Rename. Type your desired base file name and press Enter. Windows Explorer will take your base name and add a number to each file’s name. This method is good for cleaning up messy names. * Don’t let charging kiosks steal your data You’re in the mall. You must send an important email. Your smartphone is about to die. You spot a charging kiosk! You plug in! Now say goodbye to your data. Generally the charging kiosks you find at airports will probably be safe, but those you find at malls and other public places... well, who knows who put them there, or what kind of software is running inside it? The best thing to do is to always carry your charging cord that plugs into a regular old power outlet. I know it’s not always convenient, but better safe than sorry. ============================================================================================ Have a question or problem?

Gardening Tips for Everyone

Here are some of the quickest tips to help cover a whole range of issues in the garden. At least a few if not all of these will be of use to the average gardener! Here they are…….

you will end up with a more stable soil temperature which is better for all round growth. The final benefit is that it can also make potted plants look much more attractive.

Keep a photo diary of your garden, especially before and after shots of various projects and plants that you are working on. It will give you a rewarding sense of accomplishment when you look back on how much you have achieved. It will also be a reminder of what works and what didn’t work. This information will become invaluable to you in the future, and will probably become more useful than the best garden reference book in your entire collection.

Always try to keep some plants indoors in pots. Research has shown that plants growing indoors are able to absorb airborne toxins that can accumulate in the house. They are absorbed by both the plants and soil microbes, so do yourself a favor and stay healthy by keeping some indoor plants. Indoor plants also need a shower in the rain every so often, so remember to get them outside at least once a month if it happens to be raining, this will wash the dust off the foliage and freshen the soil. Make sure that they won’t be in a place of direct sunlight should the rain stop, and the clouds part, as this could severely damage an indoor plant. Don’t throw out old shoes or boots, recycle them in the garden! You can use them filled with soil and plant with herbs or flowers, then place them strategically around the garden to add a unique interesting touch. Even better just leave the new plantings by the front doorstep!

One of the best things that you can do to keep your flower garden looking attractive and fresh is to regularly deadhead. Make a habit of walking around your entire garden every few weeks and cut off the old tired flower heads and shoots that have died back and dried out. This will keep the plants looking healthy, with the advantage of encouraging new growth and more regular blooms of flowers. This is also true of your fruit and vegetable plants. For example if you are growing chillies make sure to pick them as soon as they are ready, rather than leave them on the plant too long. You will find the more that you pick the more that will grow! Make your roses look their best by spraying the leaves every few weeks with liquid seaweed fertilizer. Start spraying when the buds appear and continue as long as they are flowering. Healthy leaves are much less likely to contract black spot and powdery mildew, and it will also make them more resistant to pest attack. Just make sure to do it in the early morning, rather than the evening. When pruning roses the most important point to remember is that your secateurs, or cutting implement must be very sharp! A blunt cutting implement won’t cut, but rather tear at the stem, and this will do more damage than good. Gardenias grow best in a sunny position, with some protection from the full heat of the sun at the hottest time of the year. They will also require some shelter from the prevailing winds, a well drained soil and a regular scattering of compost around the soil. When planting new trees and shrubs bigger is not always better, especially when water is short supply. Smaller plantings such as tube-stock are cheaper, less likely to suffer transplant shock and will need less water to become established. In the long run tube-stock will often outgrow larger sized plants planted at the same time. For gardeners that live close to the sea, make sure to hose over the plants regularly to remove accumulated salt from the foliage picked up from the onshore winds. For mulch you may consider using gravel or pebbles instead of organic material such as bark, as it won’t be easily blown away, it will also last longer. To prevent potted plants from drying out too quickly try using plastic or glazed pots that will lose less water compared to terracotta. It will also help if you can spread gravel or pebbles across the top of the soil of your potted plants. It will shield the soil from extremes of heat and also protects it from drying out too easily, whilst also adding weight therefore stabilizing pots during heavy winds. It will also keep the soil warmer during cooler periods, so

If you don’t have room for a regular vegetable garden, you can easily produce something from a small area by choosing space savers that will still produce. Try chillies, capsicums, spring onions, strawberries, cherry tomatoes and all sorts of herbs, like parsley, basil, thyme, and oregano. They will also look great in pots! Salad vegetables such as the many varieties of lettuces and chives are easy to grow in a large bowl shaped container on a balcony or even inside near a sunny window. A confusing mix of sights and scents can help deter certain insect pests. Avoid monoculture (plants of one type) by mixing plants from different families. Instead of planting long rows of a single crop, plant onions with tomatoes, basil and parsley. Or interplant vegetables with flowers such as asters or marigolds, flowers will attract pollinators which will lead to greater fruit and vegetable yields. When buying fertiliser always read the label to find out the NPK ratio (that is nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium) that it contains, and whether this is best suited to your needs. Better to go without than use something that is unsuitable. Try to take a walk throughout your garden on a daily basis if possible. That way you will get the full benefit of enjoyment that it can bring to you. You can observe the buds becoming flowers, and the flowers becoming fruit, vegetable or seed. Additionally any pest or disease will be easily spotted and you will be able to take evasive action and eradicate it before it takes hold.

My final tip for today…..Gardening will become so much more enjoyable when you stick to growing plants suited to the environmental conditions of your area, otherwise you will be fighting a constant uphill battle that may even tire you of gardening altogether.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Halo Mrrr John! You don’t have to live in Indonesia long to learn that people here talk more formally than in western countries. Adults (particularly those who are already married or have kids) are referred to as Bapak (Mr) or Ibu (Mrs) so and so; children refer to older children as kakak (older brother or older sister) so and so; adult friends of the family are referred to as Paman (uncle) or Tante (aunt) so and so; and grandparents are Kakek (grandfather) or Nenek (grandmother) so and so. A person who has a position of authority or respect may use their title with Bapak or Ibu in front of it, such as Pak Mangku (Mr Lay-priest), Pak Kepala Desa (Mr Village Chief) or Ibu Guru (Mrs Teacher). Young men are referred to as Mas (a Javanese term) or Bli (Balinese). The use of Ms (Nyonya), at least in Bali, is extremely rare in Bali, and young women may be referred to as Mbak (a Javanese term) or Mbok (Balinese). Since any part of a person’s name can form the suffix, a person named Wayan Sugiarta for example could be called Bapak Sugiarta or Bapak Wayan. This is where the confusion slips in when translated into English. Since we are normally introduced to Indonesians with our first names, this is the name they know us by in their minds; however, since it is impolite in Indonesian culture to refer to someone who is an adult without a title, it is natural for Mr or Mrs to be added. Hence the awkward, unfamiliar ‘Mr John’ or ‘Mrs Mary’ that we hear all the time to address foreigners in English. Bizarrely enough, many expats choose to keep this Indonesian-ism and refer to themselves in this way. Other “bule” protest about the English version and keep the Indonesian prefix. Many prefer to drop it altogether but this can risk a drop in our ‘respect ratings’. More on this in the next issue of Kulture Kid.

“A Cheeky Affair” Only a few brief decades ago the first awareness of bamboo for many a young lad was a painful one, a cheeky sort of affair taken in a stooping position, the introduction to the material in question being executed by a sadistic schoolmaster whose most joyous moments in an otherwise totally tedious life were when wielding “Bessie” his beloved instrument of corporal correction. The strength and flexibility of the wondrous grass being self evident from the first moment of contact. Last issue we looked at bamboo, a material even more versatile than duck tape. We also looked at how bamboo is cut, handled and treated to make it last at least until Aunt Fanny pops her clogs. For eons (there’s that word again) of time the Balinese have used bamboo for building finding it cheap, plentiful and easy to work while wearing a sarong. Their structures tend to be functional and of standard rectangular forms with vertical walls and pitched roofs. In recent years, however, some very creative people have been developing amazing free flowing designs in which rectangles are rarer than virgins in a brothel.

is an excellent flooring wood but, due to high costs, people are seeking alternatives. Laminated bamboo is being increasingly used to make flooring panels. Bamboo is hard and wear resistant (though not as hard as a good hardwood of course) and has a warm natural look and feel. To make floor panels it is necessary to cut the bamboo into strips and glue them together with several layers set at right angles (the technique used to make plywood). Setting the grain crossed in this way makes the panels both strong and very stable. Laminated bamboo can be used to make beautiful doors but they can be very heavy and it is a good idea to use a honeycomb interior with laminated surfaces to reduce the weight.

For Sale; Luxury digital grand piano & synthesizer, Yamaha Clavinova CVP505: graded keys, hundreds of natural sounds, complete drum sections, unlimited recording, powerful sound, elegant genuine wooden body. As new! Pls contact <>. Denpasar. [175]

Avoid direct contact with the ground. Keep it out of the rain (except roofs of course). Provide adequate drainage around the building to keep the area as dry as possible. Provide adequate ventilation in the building. Building design needs to support these factors and where possible use extended roofs that protect the walls and structure from direct sun and rain. Another important design consideration is how the bamboo is joined. Traditional methods involve the use of bamboo pegs and coarse twine made from coconut fibres. There are some fairly sophisticated jointing methods around these days but contemporary construction often involves the use of bolts through bamboo sections filled with concrete. Bamboo can be used for building in various different forms. In construction it can be used in its natural tubular form for beams, columns and supports. Bamboo can be split down its length and flattened out to form long narrow sheets. These are widely used for walls, floor surfacing and, more recently, roofing. Bamboo can also be split into thin strips that are woven into sheets known as gedeg and used for walls, ceilings, blinds and furniture. Some forms of gedeg can be very fine and may have patterns woven into them using different colours of bamboo. Bamboo can also be laminated and this opens up considerably more useful applications. To laminate bamboo it is accurately machined (to engineering rather than carpentry levels of accuracy) then glued together and clamped tightly until the glue has set. This gives a very dense and heavy material that can be used as a replacement for wood for such things as window and door frames, doors, flooring, furniture, etc. It can even be used for large structural beams in buildings. Laminating from strips also makes it possible to laminate curved or arched beams opening up design possibilities for creative architects. The strips individually bend easily but once laminated into curves the bamboo becomes rigid and very strong. The glue commonly used for laminating is PVA glue, the type widely used by woodworkers. For some uses bamboo can be cut fairly roughly and “stitched” together using long dowels (rods). This is a very effective way of making flooring panels, steps or shelves. Bamboo has been used for roof frames since time immoral. It is strong, fairly light in weight and flexes which allows it to absorb shock loadings which is very useful for resisting strong winds, earthquakes or 10 year old boys. Probably one of the least acknowledged uses for bamboo is for roof coverings. In the area around the traditional village of Penglipuran near Bangli you will find roofs covered with bamboo shingles. Some are quite thick and nailed in place while others are much thinner and woven together at their upper ends rather like alang alang.

Abundance is not something we acquire. It’s something we tune into.

Door and window frames can also be made from bamboo. The bamboo is laminated to make up lengths which are then cut and planed in the same way that wood is used. External windows get a lot of punishment from the weather and it is important to make sure the bamboo is well varnished and that the varnish is kept in good condition.


First let us look at some important design considerations. When building with bamboo it is important to:

Panels for insulation, soundproofing or wall fill can be made using bamboo shavings mixed with cement.


So what about design? A good question. It’s very difficult to describe what is being achieved and all I can do is suggest that you go and have a look. Bali is probably one of the best places in the world to see bamboo buildings.

Linda Garland’s well known bamboo house started it all many years ago and can be seen at her estate which is now known as Panchoran Retreat situated just South of Ubud. John Hardy is a pioneer with a passion in the use of bamboo. He is the driving force that set up the Green School in the Sibang area near Mambal, an amazing creation and the realisation of a very ambitious vision. The immense 3 storey Heart of School building is surrounded by 20 or 30 other buildings all built from bamboo. The school also features two bamboo bridges across the Ayung River. Every use for bamboo imaginable has been demonstrated at the Green School and the architecture is stunning.

The experts for building with bamboo are PT Bamboo Pure whose factory is close to the Green School. PT Bamboo Pure design and construct architectural masterpieces and have built Green Village, a complex of bamboo houses quite close to the Green School.

If You Have a Problem with.....

These houses really are works of art, they are also serious buildings, their latest creation is five stories high. The creative genius behind the design team is Elora Hardy who uses a construction process very different from conventional approaches to building construction. This is due to the fact that the buildings are complex 3 dimensional structures that simply cannot be fully documented on paper. Initial concept sketches lead to working drawings which are developed as far as is practicable. From the drawings 3 dimensional scale models are built which are then used as patterns to build the buildings themselves. Even then the structures evolve with a constant process of design as construction proceeds. It is a highly intensive design process and very labour intensive but the results are truly spectacular with every element of each building a work of art in itself. Conventional design concepts or building techniques simply don’t feature in these structures. Green Village is a showcase of what can be achieved with bamboo and demonstrates the fact that we are limited only by our imagination.

PT Bamboo Pure also supply correctly treated bamboo in many forms, poles of different species and sizes, flattened bamboo, bamboo flooring panels and split bamboo for weaving walls and ceilings. Another building of note is the chocolate factory also situated in the Sibang area. The dream of Ben Ripple this a more conventional building design but is noteworthy because of its shear size, it is probably one of the world’s largest bamboo structures. It is well worth a visit and don’t forget to sample the chocolate.

In other places you can find roofs covered with bamboo that has been split into halves and simply laid down to form a sloping roof.

If you look around you will see many more bamboo buildings around Bali, both traditional and contemporary, too numerous to mention. All over the island there is a constant process of building temporary bamboo structures, holding amazing ceremonies then knocking them down again. It is just part of the natural flow of life here.

More recently we are seeing flattened bamboo used rather like roof tiles, this can be very effective when used with a thick layer of aluminium insulation underneath it.

Customer Journey Experience – Delivery How to avoid majestic problems in your service delivery.

Aw a r e n e s s – E v a l u a t i o n – P u r c h a s i n g – D e l i v e r y – A f t e r S a l e s

Let’s see these Gains and Pains in the form of an equation:

The gains are the top line – the outcomes Heidi expects, the enjoyment of the journey via the process, and a positive emotional experience. The pains are the bottom line, the price to be paid - in money, negative emotions, and time as examples. Take an example, Heidi has bought a product that requires assembly it at home. It might be IKEA shelving, it might be a home theatre set; the key issue is that Heidi has a whole lot of bits that she has never seen before that she has to make sense of. Buyer Remorse Wikipedia describes how buyer remorse may stem from fear of making the wrong choice, guilt over extravagance, or a suspicion of having been overly influenced by the seller. The first task you have is to meet Heidi’s buyer remorse, or post-purchase depression. Heidi is worried that she has made a mistake, so you must reassure her and tell her how her choice was not only smart but beats the competition hands down. If you don’t she will likely go on the internet and hunt for comparisons, so it won’t hurt you to include a simple brochure that highlights how Heidi will experience the outcomes she wants from your product. For the home theatre system, supply words and images that provide the heightened sense of actually being there as she watches her favourite movie to a standard similar to being in a cinema without the hassles. The superior sound system that is unsurpassed. Etc etc. Unpacking Your Product With her new surround-sound hi-definition home theatre Heidi is now very clear about the gains she expects from it, how it will enthral her and blow the socks off her friends. With the boxes of goodies delivered to her home, her emotional state includes excitement and anticipation in seeing her new service working. She can hardly wait to open the boxes, plug in the new HD TV and play something on the DVD. Then get on the phone and brag to her friends. On the other hand, Heidi has already experienced a couple of the pains involved in the purchase - the price and the evaluation process. She is now facing another pain as she sees that there is work to do before she can enjoy the outcome. This can cause an immediate build up of stress, because Heidi has never attempted anything like this assembly process before, and you must help her lessen that fear so that the rest of the process proceeds smoothly. Examples of pains you need to take away include: • Is the box easy to open? • Can I manage the weight of the TV by myself? • Did they damage it?

Now you have started being helpful. Go a step further and put a small diagram into the packages with cables that show what plugs into what and where; Heidi is getting the information she needs at the time she needs it. You have also started with the easiest thing, the TV, that she can immediately plug in and test, to get some quick hits. Gaining confidence with the familiar, she moves on to progressively more complex tasks that she finds she can handle in her stride. You are delivering for her, you are being helpful and interesting and the process is more likely to be fun. You are generating more positive emotions – Heidi is now feeling more stimulated, energetic and interested. You have helped to remove Heidi’s pains so that the two key emotions you are aiming to generate (happiness and pleasure) will drive recommendations to friends and family, and repeat purchases with you. If you are sending your product to a market with a different language to yours, have your material translated by a local professional. I still recall from years ago when working for Nissan Motor I received a new car accessory for stock; part of the instructions included the warning, “Do not connect this into wrong volts or you will receive majestic problems.” C/Bm/I-09 Jan 13

Achieving Outcomes So far all the experiences Heidi has experienced with you have been positive, but they count as nothing if you haven’t helped her meet the outcomes she is looking for. This is the practical side of the purchase, and your goal has always been to help supply those outcomes with perfection. This is how you win market share and increase your profits. In summary you have delivered on required outcomes, provided an enjoyable process, enhanced positive emotions, eliminated all the uncertainties you are aware of, and removed the most annoying inconveniences. For Heidi, the price paid is now a distant memory. YOUR next area of focus is after-sales advocacy. Is there an aspect of developing a successful business you would like me to write about?

Gains and Pains You might think this is a rational sort of process. But significant research has shown that about 50% of the customer experience is emotional and so how well you manage those emotions can be critical to your ongoing success. Emotions can be split into two basic areas – the Gains and Pains associated with the experience. Your job always in co-creating value is to reinforce Heidi’s perception of how excellently, together, you have maximised the gains and minimised the pains.

Do I need any special tools? Where do all these cables belong? What should I do first? Is there a simple quick start guide to give me confidence as well as the full instruction manual? • What am I going to do with my old TV? If you don’t answer these questions well in your processes and instructions then the emotions that Heidi will experience will include frustration, disappointment, irritation and anger, all directed at you – and rightly so. You have designed her experience (through your neglect or laziness) to ensure she will never come back to you and certainly won’t be recommending you to her friends.

Healing Power of Sacred Geometry Artisans of Bali By Polly Christensen

People experience many different feelings when looking at the patterns of geometry glasswork and jewellery. There are secrets behind the ancient symbols, which can be traced way back in Asian and Egyptian history. Some of the wonderful artisans of Bali have begun to incorporate these beautiful sacred geometry designs into their craft. I found some unique sacred geometry pieces in Ubud and I met one artisan behind these ancient and “life-changing” symbols. Sacred geometry is a pure language that transcends your religion and cultural beliefs. Transmitting harmonious patterns of frequency, which resonate with our original human blueprint. This innate language exists beyond the reach of philosophy, past belief or disbelief and transcends levels of awareness. There is a message within all geometric forms, which describes the growth and integration of all systems, from the binding forces within atoms to the shapes and composition of galaxies. Sacred geometry is the organized language of elemental components derived from the creative force that gives birth to all life. It therefore offers a direct channel to prime consciousness and to our Source. NATURAL WORLD The natural world that surrounds us reveals itself as a series of codes and counter resonance opposites. This electro– magnetic force lies between matrixes of archetypal patterning, and makes up all principals of matter. Essentially these codes present themselves to us as all life forms and creatures of the air, forests and ocean. They are also evident among our trees, and flowers, originating from a beam of light. Our connection with sacred geometry can be traced back to the earliest days of evolution and fascinates large numbers people on this planet. In the ancient world, various numbers had a symbolic meaning in addition to their every day purpose for counting or calculating. For example polygons, triangles, squares, hexagons, and other shapes are related to numbers (e.g. three and the triangle). The numbers carried extra emotional value to people because of their shape and connection to the codes. They are visually stimulating. Sacred geometry is used in the Sacred Geometry Ancient planning and construction of religious structures such as churches, temples, mosques, religious monuments, altars, and tabernacles; as well as for sacred spaces and sacred groves, village greens and holy wells. Geometry is evident in religious art and within the natural world. BALINESE SACRED GEOMETRY When Bali Hindus, plan to erect anything from a small shrine to an elaborate temple, they first perform a simple geometric construction on the ground, establishing where east and west lies and constructing a square from that point. Their final construction is brought to life with prayers and religious observances. Living on the island of Bali, we are exposed to environmental, chemical, psychosocial, and electromagnet stimulation of our consciousness. In the media and in our homes, we experience a continual bombardment of negative frequency. TV’s, computers, cell phones, high-tension wires, and satellites constantly wear down our energy fields, draining our vitality without our full awareness. Thousands of visitors flock to Bali every year in order to pursue various forms of spiritual healing. They have a strong desire to reach full human potential, and some may discover sacred geometry. In order to understand the link to our own creation it is not necessary to study in detail the complexity. We merely need to expose ourselves to the language it is written in, and

surround ourselves with sacred geometric shapes such as glasswork, mandalas and jewellery. TING-TING GALLERY Bapak Nyoman Adnyana is a gifted artisan. The 41-year old creates beautiful sacred geometry glassware and is the proud owner of a shop displaying his spiritually-charged creations. A life long passion has allowed Nyoman to express the truth behind sacred geometry and to inspire everyone who enters his shop. Australian visitor Mac Johnson noticed Nyoman at the age of 16 while watching him tend to ducks in the rice fields of Ubud. Concerned for his future Mac offered to school Nyoman, but the teenager requested that Mac buy him materials to create glasswork, thus designing hundreds of pieces out of his family compound. Several years later and with further assistance from a Singaporean craftsman, Nyoman found himself traveling to USA, New Zealand and Australia on business. The recent rise in material costs, has presented Nyoman and his five artisans with challenges, importing copper foil and coloured glass from overseas. You can purchase Nyoman’s sacred geometry pyramids and flower of life creations. They are handcrafted from glass and metals at TING-TING Gallery, Br. Penestanan Kaja, Ubud. Email: Tel: 0816 579905 VIBRATIONAL HEALING Balinese artisans, who create hand crafted jewellery and glass geometric shapes, are fully aware of the healing power of sacred geometry. As we connect with these geometric forms we interrelate with their fields of informational influence. Their energetic radiance gives out a frequency that cooperates with our electromagnetic fields. They are looking for a similar frequency with which to resonate and this feedback can create a deep vibrational healing power. Stargate Bali is a beautiful shop in Ubud offering many types of geometric jewellery. Designed to enhance your physical, mental, and emotional health through the resonance of your original blueprint they include the building blocks of sacred geometry. All of Stargate’s Jewellery is handcrafted in sterling silver and 24-carat gold plate, laid over silver. There are many different designs to choose from, each with a function to promote healing in a particular part of the body. For example, Solar Mandala activates the memory of your original human design, and holds the code of our celestial origins, connecting you to the benevolent Source of creation. This form is said to integrate our spiritual identity and is a very popular choice. The STARGATE shop can be found on Jalan Suweta, No.7 in Ubud. Email: Tel: 0361-2797943 FLOWER OF LIFE Images of the Flower of Life have been found all around the world and in most ancient civilizations. Other sacred geometric forms such as the Seed of Life, the Tripod of Life, the Egg of Life, the Fruit of Life and the Tree of Life are also found inside the Flower if Life. This sacred shape is said to contain patterns of creation. It is believed that through the study of sacred geometry one

can gain an understanding of the universe around us and learn the secrets of creation. A fascinating subject for many, our interaction with sacred geometry has resulted in many social media pages offering people access to these symbols online. I spoke with Sacred Geometry & The Flower Of Life, a Facebook page founded on 10 June 2009, which currently has 219 thousand “likes” and followers. What is the message within all geometric forms? The message of sacred geometry is interpreted in many different ways and we believe that it can adapt to any belief system. People who believe in intelligent design interpret sacred geometry as direct evidence that there is indeed a creator who designed the universe in a mathematical way. People who believe in spirituality and the supernatural interpret it as the language of creation, and evidence that there is a supernatural force throughout the universe. People who are more science-oriented see sacred geometry as a way of interpreting the intrinsic nature of the universe through mathematics. What feelings do people experience when looking at geometry? Barry Commoner (biologist/ecologist) stated that the first law of ecology is ‘Everything is connected to everything else.’ There is certain perfection and harmonious existence to what we as humans call ‘the universe’. We are a part of the universe and yet it is indescribable. When we look into the sacred geometric forms all around us, it helps to bring us into the true nature of our existence. We are ‘the universe experiencing itself in human form’. What are the cultural origins of geometry within Hindu religion? Hindu geometry originated in a very remote age in connection with the construction of altars made for the original Vedic sacrifices. The Hindu religion subscribes to cosmological beliefs that assign meaning to the centre of the sacred geometric forms – the square, the circle and triangle. How is Moksha related to sacred geometry? Concentric geometric forms represent Moksha elegantly. The number of concentric squares, circles, or triangles, can be enlarged and infinitely repeated, while the centre remains the same regardless of how large the final form. It is one of geometry’s small marvels. Hindu monarchs built at least one temple and, indeed, often their entire capital city, in the shape consisting of concentric squares that is known as a Mandala. The Mandala is a sacred geometric diagram or map that usually consists of ‘concentric’ squares, but may include concentric circles and rarely ‘concentric’ triangles. Hindu temples also used fractal geometry and solar system geometry in their construction. How can our readers learn to create geometric art? There is no formal training to learn how to create sacred geometric art, but there are several workshops artists can attend and/or access. The original ‘Flower of Life: Sacred Geometry’ workshop as taught by Drunvalo Melchizedek (author) is available on DVD at this website - http://www.

MONEY MATTERS by Colin Bloodworth

HAVE YOU REACHED YOUR DEBT CEILING? If you have, you are not alone. The US keeps reaching its own debt ceiling and as we have seen in recent weeks it has to go through a painful process of approval, including political games of cat and mouse and horse dealing before a new ceiling is approved. The reason is that once a new debt limit has been set the government is prevented by law from spending beyond that limit until a new agreement has been reached. As a consequence, when the debt approaches the limit non-essential government services are shut down. If the limit is reached and there is still no agreement to increase it then the US would be unable to repay its debt obligations.

agreement to reduce the subsidy but the fall in the Rupiah has already wiped out half of that benefit. Of course there are social pressures too but the message has not got through that if the subsidy was removed the money saved could be spent on health, education and infrastructure. It would also create more jobs. In Europe not only are there no fuel subsidies but fuel is also taxed, often quite heavily. As a result, the governments enjoy more income, people use their cars a lot less and the countries can afford efficient transportation systems.

When you consider this includes interest on Treasury Bonds to a value exceeding three trillion dollars entrusted to the US by countries like China and Japan alone, such a default would cause very serious reputational damage and could cause the US Dollar to lose its place as the world’s reserve currency. The US has never defaulted on its debt, not even during the War of Independence when it continued to pay interest to Britain whom it was fighting. Such a situation is unthinkable so the parties invariably agree to increase the debt limit and the borrowing continues.

Absolutely. When we plan our finances we should avoid the terrible mistakes that governments make. But how many people do exactly the same as the US government when it comes to debt? How many people spend to the limit of their credit card and then apply for another and yet another? If the government can borrow so can I you might say. But there is a big difference. The government can borrow money by issuing bonds at just 2.5% per annum or less in the case of the US or a number of other countries. But an individual in those countries will pay much more for a basic bank loan and if you choose to run up a credit card debt you could be paying up to 20% per annum for the privilege. Much more again if you use a credit card in say, Indonesia.

Where does stand?

At the time of writing, and just for a fraction of a second, it stands at US$16,965,988,219,410. What would that be in Rupiah? A rough calculation would put it at Rp.191,704,500,000,000,000 give or take a few billion. To see where the debt stands right now log on to at the first opportunity and watch the debt mounting before your eyes in a fascinating display. How can the US and many other countries to a lesser degree continue to raise money to cover their excessive spending? In the case of the US there is still a huge global appetite for US Treasury Bonds. Why? Because they are perceived as safe and guaranteed by the US government. Which is also why the US cannot afford to lose its solid reputation. So how much interest do these bonds pay? At the time of writing a 10 year bond would pay close to 2.6% per annum. Hardly an exciting return and taking inflation into account the real return is close to zero. But bank deposits have only very limited guarantees and stock markets can be risky in the short term. If you are managing a pension scheme or paying out annuities for example you have to be certain that you have sufficient funds to meet your obligations. It is not your concern if the purchasing power of the money you are paying out is far less than what was paid in; the important thing is that money that is promised must be delivered, no more and no less.

Are there lessons for individuals?

Governments should be saving for a rainy day, not spending as if there was no tomorrow. Actually, some governments do save. When Norway struck oil on a large scale they decided at the outset that a large part of the revenue must be locked away in a fund for the long term benefit of the country. A far cry from how the oil revenue was spent in the UK. We should be saving too. When you prepare your personal budget, always allocate part of it to short, medium and long term savings. You may have to cut out some expenditures and that may not be popular with all the family but you are not seeking votes; you are trying to secure the future for your family. Some debt is acceptable, such as a mortgage for the family home or even a manageable loan for a big item like a car. But a safe cash reserve must always be maintained so you have a cushion if you need it to prevent default. You are not like the US government that can simply vote to increase the debt with no end in sight. Manage your own affairs prudently and you should not only secure for yourself a comfortable retirement but you may even have something to leave for your children and grandchildren. Unlike some governments whose uncontrolled spending will have to be paid for in one form or another by generations to come.

How can governments get so deeply into debt? The answer lies of course in politics. No government in power wants to curtail spending to the point where people are unhappy and decide to switch their allegiance to a party that appears more generous. Governments have to share the cake that is provided by taxes and other income into several main areas of expenditure. These include defense, debt repayment, education, infrastructure, pensions, health and welfare. In most countries these costs rise inexorably every year and it is a painful exercise deciding where cuts can be made. A local example of an item that causes great losses to Indonesia is the fuel subsidy. Last year the government tried to drive through a bill all but removing the subsidy but opposition parties opposed it. This year at least there was

Say What? Question: I’m dating a girl who’s pretty, has a great body, and loves to work out at the gym. But it’s getting to a point where her muscles are ridiculous. Her calves and butt are insane, and the veins on her arms pop out because she works them so hard. I’m not insecure about her being in better shape than I am; I’m pretty athletic myself. It’s just that I don’t find it attractive anymore. With all the time it takes for her workout every day, there’s barely enough time and energy left for sex. It’s at a point where if she had to sacrifice one or the other, she’d probably give up time with me just so she can work out. Are other guys attracted to women who have big, bulging muscles? Is she doing this for me or instead of me?

that’s more important than job titles. The most significant question is: “Are you meeting as equals with respect for each other?” If either of you is clueless, thoughtless or manipulative, things are apt to get messy quick. For that reason alone, most people would say don’t do it.

Dr. ZZ: I’ve never been fond of men with balloon-sized muscles much less women with bulging veins. Women with super large muscles may be overcompensating for something: insecurity, low self-esteem, or maybe a sense of penis-envy. Whatever the reason, a poll in Fitness magazine a couple of years ago reported that 51% of women surveyed said they’d go without sex for an entire year if it meant being thin. In other words, women do not diet and work out so that they can have great sex. They do it for other reasons, and they’d gladly stop having sex just to look good.

Question: I recently met a guy through a mutual friend. He’s great on paper: 36, single, attractive, owns his own business. Unfortunately he’s divorced, and he has two young kids. He asked me out, but I’m only 29, so dating a guy with that kind of baggage scares me. Should I give a divorced dad with kids a chance? Or should I date someone who is less encumbered?

The takeaway in the survey was that the rest of the women polled said they’d be willing to be 30 pounds (13.6 kilos) overweight if it meant having great sex. Perhaps you’d be happier with one of these other women who would rather have fun than be slave to their looks. Question: This is an “age-old” question, but I need to ask it anyway. My boss is male, six years older than I, and we flirt a lot. He started the whole thing with silly emails and random text messages while we were at work. Now, he has asked me out, and he’s so handsome and attractive, I want to date him. Should work get in the way of a relationship? I want to go out with him. Is it a bad idea to go out with my boss? Dr. ZZ: Age-old wisdom is that office relationships are a bad idea. Too often they tend to make things awkward on the job. When they don’t work out, men for the most part have an uncanny ability to get over it quickly; whereas women tend to suffer and end up having to find other work. Any relationship, however, manages to succeed or fail based on the people involved. When each of the two individuals is confident and well-adjusted, it doesn’t matter where you meet. The general rule of thumb is not to date your boss. That isn’t to say it can’t happen. Life is short, and when you meet someone you genuinely connect with,

It’s fine to be friends with the people you work with, but there are politics that come with dating a co-worker -- even more when you go out with your boss. Co-workers will look at you differently, your performance will be viewed in an awkward light, and your job may end up at stake. Bosses are notorious for blaming minor performance issues on an office fling. Only you can decide if it’s worth the risk.

Dr. ZZ: To say you’re “only 29” makes it sound as if you feel young and unprepared. Such an argument doesn’t necessarily hold up based on age alone. Although people going into their 30s nowadays often attempt to keep living the twenty-something lifestyle, it hasn’t always been that way. Being 29 with a couple of kids isn’t that big of a stretch. The situation isn’t about whether there’s a certain age at which you can handle a divorced guy with two kids. It’s more about your level of life experience: what you think you can handle, and how into the guy you are. That’s a complex equation, and when you’re in love with someone and ready to be Mom to his kids (whether or not they’re from a previous marriage) you’ll know. As it is, the two of you just met; so dating is not out of the question. Why not see how it feels and where it goes? If you continue to feel as if a woman in her late 20s should not have to deal with the responsibility of taking care of someone’s baggage, then you and this fellow are probably not on the same page. Maybe five or six years from now you will be ready to take on this level of commitment, but that’s not going to help the current situation. Chances are you’ll probably just have to go out and continue meeting other people. Meanwhile, there’s no harm dating this guy for a while if you feel inclined to learn more about him and yourself.

30 October - 13 November, 2013


This is probably the biggest fortnight of the year with the Uranus square Pluto pinnacle and the New Moon Eclipse in Scorpio. It promises to be an action packed time and also a high vibrational portal that allows for unprecedented change. We have a number of planets at the 9 degree mark creating a powerful web of higher dimensional attunement. The New Moon is in Scorpio conjunct Saturn, Sun, Mercury (set to go direct again) and the North Node and we will continue this month, in a state of high calibre change and transformation. Venus enters that very practical and hardworking sign of Capricorn. It can be both exhilarating and discombobulating. Adjustments are being entered into willingly or they may be forced upon us. Change is the staple as we make our way through this month. It’s finally time for action after the past two years of sifting, sorting and releasing. By now you know what you no longer want and with that you are able to start creating the life that you do. The Eclipse highlights the need for let-go, for persistence in the face of change or adversity and the feeling of the necessity for making the choices that you do. There will be the possibility of power struggles and as we head towards a very possessive Taurus Full Moon; these will be apparent. The North Node is the karmic indicator and as I said, things have a sense of rightness about them and the new course of action, something that you must do.

NEW MOON 11 Scorpio 16 November 03, 2013 8:51 p.m.

ARIES Mars continues in Virgo throughout November and brings some much needed stability to your life. Dealing with practical day to day duties will keep you with both feet on the ground. Uranus in your sign is supremely challenged by Pluto this fortnight with the effects lasting throughout the month. It’s a watery month of deep emotional currents that will have you looking for a flotation device. If you are at all overwhelmed by this remember to find yourself a good patch of nature to get an objective perspective on events and relationships. Challenges are likely to come from family associations and a reminder of your past.

LIBRA Venus in Capricorn, although very grounding, can also create some havoc for you with its square to your natal Libra planets and it’s going to be in this sign all the way through to early March. Quite a lot of work to be done in the area of relationships then and with Pluto also in Capricorn and in its square to Uranus in Aries driving all of this even deeper and harder. A constant series of let-goes instigating change and new doors opening. You may find it hard to settle in the midst of this chaotic nodal period. Capricorn will be aligning you with patience, steadiness and the ability to stick at the hardest of tasks.

TAURUS Venus moves into Capricorn this fortnight and brings a compatible flow of relating into your life. As an earth sign, you prefer things to be harmonious and preferably easy. This is one area of your life that comes under that banner. Things aren’t really designed to be necessarily easy though right now and an impending sense of intensity will prevail throughout the month. Keep your cool as much as possible and be willing to adapt and adjust regularly. Everyone is in the same position of deep transformative change and so no need to feel like you are being unduly targeted. Enjoy the company of others.

SCORPIO Well everything is in your corner of the heavens or so it seems this month. The Sun fresh in your sign is meeting with the Moon in an eclipse and Saturn, Mercury and the North Node all there as well. Pluto your ruler in that much publicised square to Uranus at the very beginning of the month pushing for change and transformational growth. How are you going to handle all of this in a way that supports the emergence of the new you? Finding ways to release the pain of the past and live without resentment or guilt is your mission now. There is such intensity to all of your affairs at this time.

GEMINI Mercury turns directs on the 11th although it has retreated to the early degrees of Scorpio and will spend the rest of the month returning to it’s turning point. It may feel like you are covering mental territory that you’ve already been over. Do this revision and get things properly sorted in your life now, as much of the old thinking and behaviour is leaving your life. Get ready for the tide to turn and be prepared to alter course at the drop of a hat. These are the days of inconsistent flow that have you adapting in a fluid way. No point getting upset about things that appear to be out of your control. Chose to stay calm.

SAGITTARIUS Jupiter is set to turn retrograde during this fortnignt of chaotic change and spontaneous growth and you may be feeling like life has taken a very unexpected turn indeed. Family issues are still very much on the radar with this planetary ruler of yours retrograding in the sign of Cancer. The Moon is eclipsing the Sun and bringing a highlight and an intensity to these very same family affairs. You may be separated by continents or death but your family were some of the most powerful influences you received in this lifetime. A great time to let go of the programmes, ideas and beliefs no longer working for you.

CANCER A significant moon cycle begins just after the exact square of Uranus and Pluto. These are powerful times that you will remember for the rest of your life and that will go down in the history of the Planet. In the darkest moments, you can still find something to be grateful for and it is this that will lift you up out of the doldrums when they arise. Your moods and emotions will surge from one extreme to the other this month. A little isolation or alone time may be necessary to fully express and feel the depths of these tidal waves of feeling. Process them rapidly and be willing to move on to the next and remember to ask for help.

CAPRICORN Your ruler is sitting comfortably just in front of the New Moon, Sun, Mercury and Node stellium which is suggesting great and magnificent things for you this month. If you find yourself suddenly catapulted into old and familiar situations, do your best to confront them with the new you, rather than the old you. So much is going on and on all levels that it truly is hard to see the wood for the trees right now. Ride this month of November out as best you can and be willing to both roll with the changes and also act where necessary. It can be a little tough going if you succumb to fear or doubt. Stay strong.

LEO The Sun is eclipsed by the moon at the beginning of this month and in the sign of Scorpio and for many this will be squaring their Leo Planets. You are getting an extra little push now to transform your life and to let-go of the things that no longer work for you. At your deeper and intuitive levels you know exactly what and who they are. Willingly surrender them or you may be forced through confrontation to do so. If there are those in your life who think they know better than you what your actions should be, ask them to tend to their own business before employing themselves in yours. This promises to be a very exciting time.

AQUARIUS All eyes are on you with the strong impulses coming from Uranus as it is challenged by that powerful small Planet Pluto at the beginning of this month. You may feel like defending your stance now more powerfully than ever before. If you are feeling agitated and irritated by the challenges that surround you, know that it’s all par for the course and find yourself a healthy outlet or simply remove yourself from the situation for a bit while you cool down your hot head and ready yourself for a fresh start. There is nothing coming your way that you can’t hancle, just stay calm and centred.

VIRGO Mars remains in your sign all throughout November. A great little action plan has been devised and let’s see if you can stick to it with all the challenges you now face in many areas of your life. It can be a comfort to have this Mars energy at your back, right when you need that little bit of extra steam to keep the momentum going. You are a dedicated and loyal person who loves to serve for the well being of others and the planet. You could be just the person who is required for the job as you are willingly able to adapt to this deep flow of emotions that seems to be swamping the planet.

PISCES Neptune turns direct at the end of this potent fortnight, so by the time you’ve been through this round of purging you will be well and truly ready to move forward into the next phase of your life and it promises to be sweet. New found friends support you in this next phase of your work with a great deal of nurture and upliftment. Your services are much needed now as many are left a little stranded emotionally with the strong impact of these past two weeks. There is a little more to come before the dust settles. Be still in the meantime and value the silence when it is yours within which to indulge.

BA Feature


Street Art in Bali The Island of 1000 Murals It is visible most everywhere in Bali: street art consisting of painted murals, sprayed-on graffiti, tags, scratches, musings, pictorial screams and protests. An expressionist medley of ideas, thought and opinion that appears on walls, buildings, fences, gates, rolltop doors, sidewalks, even on Vespas and the backside of big rigs. Bali has no lack of street artists and the more talented ones belong to organized groups like the Bali Street Art Community or Bali Mural Conspiracy. Formerly an underground movement, street art has sprung into mainstream respectability. It is supported by the Bali Arts festival and contracted by commercial interests and environmental organizations. Its themes are sociopolitical, cultural, environmental; at times educational, controversial, enlightening, amusing. Bali is becoming the island of 1000 Murals. The definition of street art can be very fluid and elastic. It most obviously takes the form of visual art like painted murals and graffiti, but can also apply Bali Mural Conspiracy creation for the Bali Creative to performance Festival artists like street musicians, dancing gigs, magic tricks and circus acts. In other words, any art form that is enacted in the streets. Generally, the term street art refers most often to the visual arts and is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti which is considered vandalism. Street artists attempt to have their work communicate and resonate with everyday people about socially relevant themes and they are executed like a normal painting, using public spaces or private walls as a canvas. In contrast, graffiti may also express underlying social and political messages but these are typically created with spray paint and don’t attain the esthetical qualities of mural art. They are sometimes used by gangs to mark territory or to serve as an indicator of gang-related activities. Street art ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and it has existed since ancient times, in the form of inscriptions, figure drawings, cartoons and caricatures, even simple advertisements. They have been found on the walls of ancient sepulchers and monuments, the Catacombs of Rome, on temples in ancient Greece, at Pompeii, and on the pyramids in Egypt. Evolution - With the emergence of hip hop culture in the 1970s and their extensive use of wall-art and graffiti as a primary means to communicate their angst, aspirations and protests, street art has evolved and become mainstream. Street art and graffiti are now a rapidly developing art form whose value is at once highly admired, but also contested and reviled by many authorities since much of what constitutes graffiti can rightly be considered vandalism. The distinction can be difficult sometimes. Easy enough to filter out the trite like the “Kevin was Here” or “Daniel Loves Cindy” variety of graffiti. A bit more difficult to judge when it comes to subversive art, political slogans and social protests. In the past 20 years, street art has been extensively used in advertising and several exhibitions have been created in Europe, USA and Australia that displayed graffiti as an art form. Subsequently, a lot of street artists, who traditionally wanted to remain anonymous in order to stay under the radar of civic authorities, have now become famous in their own right. Case in point is the work of US artists Crash, Lee, Daze, Keith Haring, world-famous Banksy in England and Frenchman Jean-Michel Basquiat. These artists have created some of the most iconic, politically shocking and artistically revered works of street art. They brought graffiti to the mainstream, to high culture, made it acceptable and inspired artists all over the world to use the urban canvas to scratch out their vision of the world for everyone to see. No fussy art gallery required. Street art can be a powerful platform for reaching the public and

in several communities, authorities have started to sanction certain forms of street art to spruce up bleak walls, concrete pillars, street barriers, etc. in an attempt to regenerate and/or beautify less than attractive urban areas. Civil administrations have begun to see artistic value in some graffiti and to recognize it as a form of public art or education. Consequently it has been used as an effective tool for social emancipation or in the achievement of a political goal. For instance, in communist and socialist countries revolutionary slogans and paintings in public places are used to galvanize the country’s population into accepting and supporting the nationalist propaganda. In times of conflict, murals have offered a means of communication and self-expression for members of socially, ethnically or racially divided communities and have proven themselves as effective tools in establishing dialog and even a help in resolving divisions. The Berlin Wall was also extensively covered by graffiti reflecting social pressures relating to the Soviet oppression. A global phenomenon - Street art is a global phenomenon and occurs everywhere, even in the repressive Middle East. The most remarkable examples of street art can be found in Europe and the USA, though South America displays its own distinct brand of mural art especially in Argentina and Brazil. It has also started emerging in South-east Asia, specifically in Kuala Lumpur and even in Indonesia where the street artists of Yogyakarta and Jakarta can be very prolific and display a rich and imaginative talent. Art is a primordial force in Balinese life and because of their culture the Balinese are adept at many art forms including street art. Everywhere you go in urban settings like Denpasar, Kuta, Tabanan and even in rural and remote places, you will encounter prolific examples of graffiti and street art. The themes vary and include political slogans, social commentary, environmental SOS messages, or simply are entertaining and an expression of true artistic desire to beautify a space. Much of the mural art calls attention to Bali’s many problems and most of the artists sign their work and have become well known in the community. They are taking on the role of batman of the art scene. Made Bayak is one such artist. With lots of examples of his street art dotted around Bali and a reputation as an a c t i v i s t , environmentalist and anti-corruption campaigner, Made uses his art and his street projects to draw attention to the blight of trash, animal exploitation, and other social and environmental ills in Bali. He executed the Bali Urban Farming mural project in 2012 at the International School in Sanur together with a team of students. This was a partnership project initiated by, an environment/lifestyle online magazine whose eco-conscious murals, created in cooperation with local street artists, have been spotted in well-trafficked Denpasar streets. Made is also the guy who put plasticology on the map. He sees a Bali overwhelmed by trash and feels that as an artist he can contribute to the growing awareness amongst the Balinese. His art mainly communicates environmental and political messages and he feels that the government could do more to incorporate murals in the urban landscape. Government should be more open-minded and accept street art as a bona fide means of artistic expression. Made says he uses his art as a “weapon” to change people’s point of view and to elicit change in society. He feels that anyone with a talent for drawing, writing or music can use this as a means to make a change for a better future for us and for our next generation. He created the Bali Mural Conspiracy with a group of friends with the goal of beautifying the Denpasar cityscape. The Bali Mural Conspiracy is part of an ambitious project called Bali Island of 1000 Murals. It intends to position street art in function of tourism. Beautiful murals can attract tourists and be part of the tourism industry propaganda. Gen Netik is an artist from Mengwi whose moniker explains the way he views art as purely genetic, meaning it is totally in his genes, in his blood, in his soul. He is a prolific artist who does murals, paintings, creates comics and manga-zines with characters inspired by his Balinese culture and roots. In 2009 he captured first prize at the Yogyakarta Biennale with a 20-meter

mural featuring the Barong and Balinese inspired figures as part of a collage of images painted on a zinc fence that took 1 week to execute. His subject matter is as varied as his talent. He creates images with environmental statements and political cartoons; manga heroines and cultural icons. One of his trademark characters is El Diablo, a naughty devil whose behavior mirrors humanity’s bad exploits and exposes the foibles and weaknesses, inherent lies, hypocrisy and corruption of the human being. Desty Woman is a manga-style super-girl, a modern-day Calonarang with flaming hair and clawfingers who fights black magic. She is molded on the strong and independent character of the Balinese women. Balinese culture plays a dominant role in Gen Netik’s work. Many of his painings parody the Wayang style and juxtapose the old traditions and wisdom of an ancient culture with the superficial and empty values of Western decadence and the danger of following these trends by Balinese society. His work also explores the dangers and pitfalls of urban development and ill thought-out investments with powerful and explosive images. Street Artist Communities – Street artists tend to be part of a community with likeminded artists, inasmuch as the execution of a big mural is often a cooperative effort with several muralists participating in the realization of a design. In Bali the most active groups are Djamur Community, Komunitas Pojok and the Bali Street Art Community which all have created a platform for young Balinese artists to express their art through alternative media such as graffiti and street murals. By and large they all embrace serious art and are very active in the various art fests and organized activities of the Bali art scene. Komunitas Pojok hosts exhibitions and auctions through their yearly Bali Yang Binal (Untamed Bali) events. That Bali’s street art is being taken seriously is attested by the efforts of an organization called the Indonesian Street Art Database (ISAD) which is digitally archiving street art work across Indonesia, including Bali. The Director of ISAD is an artist-activist who believes that street art is a visual history of community issues and conserving this art – when it is in danger of being whitewashed by authorities – is paramount to helping Indonesians understand the development of their political thought and cultural consciousness. Another nod to legitimacy was recently given by Jakarta Governor Jokowi when he decided to issue mural permits to street artists in Jakarta. Though this decision has elicited mixed reactions due to the restrictive nature of the government’s definition of street art, the fact remains that this type of governmental approval and encouragement can be a tremendous boost for the development and acceptance of street art. It can be said that street art is more direct and in-your-face than conventional art. It can push the boundaries of acceptable art but then again, that is also the case for conventional art. Ideally a compromise between artists and civic authorities would be beneficial for all in society. Authorities can gain by allowing artists to spruce up run-down areas. Artists will get more exposure to their art and the community gets to enjoy the beauty of free art work. It could be a win-win situation for all involved. Not to mention that it would vastly improve the blighted appearance of the urban landscape in cities such as Denpasar. The next feature on Street Art will put the spotlight on a few more Balinese artists and specific styles such as tags and sticker art, stencil graffiti, 3-D creations, Wayang and literary themes.

Bali with Kids Let’s Go Canyoning!

Adrenaline, Fun and Adventure for families and friends Adventure and Spirit is a professional company offering canyoning activities in Bali. Our team went and tried this new activity with children as young as 8 years old and it was certainly the best family activity we have done in a long, long time. We highly recommend this fantastic day out and exhilarating experience in beautiful natural surroundings. So what is canyoning? (also known as Canyoneering descent of canyon) is an outdoor adventure and extreme sport in Bali using a variety of techniques that may include activities such as caving, walking, wading, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling, sliding down natural slopes, and/or swimming in white water. Canyoning consists in following a natural watercourse. In some parts of the canyon itinerary, swimming may depend on water level fluctuations (when there is no water, you descend a dry canyon) determined by the wide range of gorges, ravines or waterfalls landscapes. If that sounds daunting to you and your family, let us just reassure you: it is an activity that everyone can do, especially with the Adventure and Spirit professional team who will take care of you at all times.

shortest course called the Kali Kecil trip and it was 1:30hrs of pure canyoning and fun. It was amazingly rich in colours and magic landscapes all along our descent and we are now keen on discovering the other canyons in that area. Slightly more challenging but also recommended for children and teenagers is the Kali Mudah canyon trip. It offers several jumps (one of 5m – optional), natural water slides, rappels (15m maximum) and in the second part of the canyon wonderful sequences of plantscovered, volcanic rock and natural warm spring basins encountered at the end of the tour. Kali Mudah is a discovery and sporty descent with lots of fun.

For teenagers over 16 years old, the Kerenkali canyon is a sporty option. Also, located in Gitgit area, Kerenkali is the extension of Kalimudah canyon. It is usable throughout the year and has two parts: the first one is a sequence of jumps, water slides, short rappels with gorges made of volcanic rock, caves and a sulphurous water basin coming out from underground, a mix of fun and exploration for both the beauty and the thrills. The second part is sportier with enchanting rappel descents of waterfalls (the highest is 20m), swims, jumps of up to 10m (optional), floating and there is a Balinese lunch at mid-way of the canyon. It takes approximately 4 hours to complete.

Our group enjoyed the final water fight and kids, mums and dads all loved this unique experience. After the trek back of 15 minutes, we arrive at the finishing point where we get a rinse, change back into our clothes and enjoy a well deserved snack and a drink.

Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

Imagining Indonesia edited by Jim Schiller and Barbara Martin-Schiller Don’t be quick to warn of the e s s a y ’ s d e m i s e . Through a catholic range of t o p i c s , Imagining Indonesia comprehensively addresses in a series of e l e v e n essays what it means to be Indonesian and what constitutes Indonesian culture. The Indonesian, American and Australian contributions represent a wide range of disciplines, points of view and ideological orientations. Each in his or her own way, these political scientists, historians, anthropologists, artists and students of Indonesian arts skillfully invite critical thinking.

authentic concept rising out of the village experience of neighbors working together for the common good. Their intention was to support the right to play a dominant role (dwi fungsi) as defender of the country and manager of the country’s development. The military stood to gain from the acceptance of an ideology that denies a place in politics for opposition and conflict.

In William Liddle’s essay, he discusses three prominent innovators – Goenawan Mohammed as a promoter of individual liberty; Sjahrir who challenges the substantial role played by the state in the economy; Nurcholish Madjid who champions Islamic values in a secular state. Moelyono believes that Indonesian art should be about the suffering, hopes and the interests of the rakyat, the poor Indonesian masses – a “people’s art.” William Frederick portrays the writer Armijn who railed against the Indonesian publishing house Balai Pustaka for trying to censor what Indonesians read and assuming that Indonesians had poor taste or low intelligence.

*The suspiciously Javanese-sounding term gotong royong, used to depict the Indonesian ideal of mutual cooperation to achieve development projects, was actually first invented from the top down by nationalist politicians to coordinate resistance against colonial domination. The use of such pseudo-traditional terms by Indonesian authorities can be seen as part of a Javanizing strategy central to the Indonesian nation-building effort. The concept was also used to justify the restriction of freedoms and to mobilize villagers to do unpaid work for the state.

Kuntowijoyo’s fascinating essay is about the dress, manners and submissiveness to authority of the rank-conscious and hedonistic Javanese bureaucratic elite of Solo in the early twentieth century. “What’s in a name?” shows how language has been continually invoked in order to mobilize the population to achieve the nation’s economic development goals. Other essays concern themselves with compulsory land clearance issues that have come about because of the construction of golf courses, housing and industrial estates; the plight of indigenous ethnic groups to integrate into the Indonesian state; how the country’s citizens and state officials interact; the resurgence of traditional wayang theatre and the philosophical basis of the Indonesian state. Some of the essays are dated, i.e. mention of Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur) as head of the NU Islamic Association (Nahdlatul Ulama), but not yet president. It’s said that the iron law of the essay is heresy, and in this regard this book’s essays point out paradox, provoke argument, question authority and cultivate doubt and skepticism. Here are just some of the stimulating and arcane issues that the essays address: *The concept of sekularisasi (secularization), first promulgated by Nurcholosi in 1970 in a famous, highly controversial speech at the State Islamic Institute in Jakarta, Muslims have become mere traditionalists not able to come to grips with the great demands of current and future social change such as test-tube babies, organ transplants and homosexuality. In Nurcholosi’s words, Arabian society, under Muhammad, who practiced an early form of Islam, was actually more “modern” than the periods that followed in which the religion became more stagnated and intolerant. *It was the Indonesian armed forces that first advanced the idea of the familial state (Negara Kekeluargaan) as an

*Surakarta in the early years of the 20th century was already a complex society with movies, electricity, good cigars, educational lectures, fancy costumes, stage shows, circuses, classical orchestras, dinner and dance clubs, jubilant marriage celebrations, colonial government bureaucratic priyayi associations, an organization of opium service shops, a charming pasar malam of beautiful women and even a Chinese bandit association. The Javanese began to use toothbrushes, cut their hair, stopped wearing baggy trousers and had to remove their eyeglasses when meeting another Javanese. The susuhunan (raja) practiced political mysticism and was well versed in Western social dances. *Language is an all-pervasive agent of cultural cohesiveness in Indonesia. The Sanskrit-derived Pancasila (The Five Principles) is the best example of the nationalistic use of language, along with other mottos like Panca Usaha Tani (The Five Endeavors of Farmers), all employed in the service of the state to unify the diverse people of the whole archipelago.

*Each of the book’s chapters are actually lessons in how maddeningly difficult it is to govern, regulate and integrate such a multi-ethnic and geographically diverse island nation as Indonesia. If Indonesia didn’t already exist, certainly no one would ever attempt to invent it. The animist Nualu people of Seram in central Maluku and the Buddhist Samin people of central Java are examples of peoples who lack a sense of belonging to the whole – the far stronger and more powerful Indonesian state.

It would greatly benefit the book if readers could find the interrelationships of topics, concepts and names of both places and people quickly and efficiently in a well-written, detailed and organized index. (I’m against the accepted convention that a book of essays does not need an index.) A good index is even more imperative for serious books such Imagining Indonesia. It takes a lot to keep a reader engaged for over 350 pages, but in the end the majority of the essays manage to make it clear that there is no single understanding of what constitutes Indonesian culture. In a country as large and populous, with so many religions, cultures and races, Indonesia’s culture is complex, vibrant and dynamic. A complete understanding of the country’s culture is not possible nor is it even desirable.

Somebody Loves Them Bali Dogs, that is. And the anti-rabies fighter BAWA too, the Bali Animal Welfare Association, which as no one should have missed or failed to remark upon, has come to grief on the treacherous shoals of Bali’s perversely acquisitive and uniquely dysfunctional bureaucracy. Jaymi Muzzicato, who is 11 and comes from Cranbourne in Victoria, Australia, has used her big heart and energy to raise funds in Australia for BAWA programs to support the welfare of animals in Bali. After visiting BAWA in September, she says she just can’t wait to come back to Bali and BAWA as a volunteer. Meanwhile, back home, she’s busy ramping up more support for BAWA among her friends, family and fellow students and staff at her school, Courtenay Gardens Primary, where earlier she won the backing of her school principal and teacher to run a colouring contest for the benefit of BAWA. To promote the contest, she researched BAWA and shared lots of stories about rescued animals and BAWA’s many other animal support programs. When Jaymi visited BAWA in Ubud in September she presented $150 (Australian) raised from the contest, her personal money and donations. And she made a new friend of Monkey, a street dog that has adopted BAWA’s Jl Monkey Forest shop as her daytime home but likes the street life at night. Jaymi says her visit to BAWA was the highlight of her two weeks in Bali and that it has motivated her to plan further fundraising for Bali animals in need. Saying thanks to Jaymi for her efforts, BAWA founder Janice Girardi noted the capacity of young people around the world to make a difference to animal welfare. “We are really heartened when people like Jaymi take the initiative to give their time and energy to promoting BAWA and supporting our work to protect and create a better future for Bali’s animals,” said Girardi. Some people around here might profit spiritually by noting all that.

Kindling a Fire Inveterate Legian blogger Vyt Karazija has had enough, it seems. But it’s not the terrible traffic, brutish baristas, ‘orrible ‘olidaymakers, importunate Rp600K quick-time girls, predatory premans or any of the other dangerous denizens of Grossville that have him on the outer edge of his temper envelope. He popped up on Facebook, where like the Diary he spends a lot of time that probably gets him into trouble, with a swipe at Amazon/Kindle for complicating the life of authors from outside the USA. It was no wonder, he wrote, that authors from elsewhere other than the Land of the Free hate using that Yankee conglomerate for their works. We quote: “First, they put you through a tax grilling, making you pay ridiculous rates of tax to the IRS unless you execute some complex document relating to ‘treaty benefits’ with your home country. Then you have to physically ring the IRS and confirm. Then, a year later, they make you go through the whole charade again... “Here is a typical bureaucratic question on their latest incomprehensible tax form: ‘Do you derive the income for which you can claim treaty benefits?’ “Simple, right? But then they helpfully ‘explain’ how to answer, and melt your brain in the process: ‘Income may be derived by either the entity receiving the item of income or by the interest holders in the entity or, in certain circumstances, both. An item of income paid to an entity is considered to be derived by the entity only if the entity is not fiscally transparent under the laws of the entity’s jurisdiction with respect to the item of income. Answer yes or no’. “Why don’t they just ask: ‘Are you the one getting the money?’ I guess that would be too simple.” We engaged Karazija on this, pointing out that millions of legislative drafters worldwide would be unemployed were the KISS principle to be invoked. He came back with a lovely line: “Bafflegab rules.” We can’t beat that.

In the Running Alicia Budihardja, late of Conrad Bali and most recently late of Mantra (the newish Aussie player on the comfy beds circuit) has popped up at the plush St Regis, as assistant director of marketing communications reporting to Stephanie Carrier, director of same. It’s a move “just down the road” but a big career step. We wish her well. It’s so nice to know cheery people who enjoy their work and are good at their jobs. The new gig encompasses fellow Starwood property Laguna Resort and Spa. It’s a cluster in the new-speak of the resort world. Perhaps we shall soon be seeing

Budihardja winning beach races with all the practice she’s bound to get sprinting up and down Geger Beach to the Laguna and vice-versa.

Exit Report We love seeing old friends who make it back to Bali from far-flung places – even though in this particular instance we were so busy in paradise we could only see them once (for a lovely lunch at a favourite spot, Café des Artistes in Ubud) – and it’s fun getting their post-trip exit reports too. Thus we hear from Larry Sprecher, of Portland, Oregon, who truly is a senior citizen, as is his wife Maggie, the self-driver on their trips: “Maggie had no trouble with the missing International Driver’s Permit. We were stopped at only one roadblock. The officer took a look at Maggie, did a double take, saluted and waved her on through. “The new [Ngurah Rai] International Departure Building is impressive. It will be even more impressive when they get the new restaurants, shops, and provide places for 1000 people to sit.” Ah Bali! Don’t you just love it?

It Ain’t Half Hot Mum Well it would be, dopey. And very humid: It’s Bali and the rainy season is coming. (Disclaimer: Print deadlines being what they are, this item was sent off 10 days ago; if everything’s changed by the time you read this, and you’re wearing galoshes because it’s sodden underfoot or ugg boots to ward off the rainy season chill, don’t blame your poor diarist). Back in mid-October BMKG (the Department of Meteorology) felt obliged to tell people it hadn’t been any hotter than it always was at that time of the year. Then it said it had been, which came as no surprise, since in Indonesia yes is so often no and black so often white. Living within earshot of public discourse here is reminiscent of listening to Jim Trott (admirably played by Trevor Peacock) in that fine Brit sit-com The Vicar of Dibley, whose seminal contribution to any discussion consists of “no-no-no-no – yes”. But we digress. BMKG felt obliged, in its public disclosure of the state of Bali’s weather, to advise that the sun was moving south at the time – both astronomers and astrologers will be glad to hear that, no doubt, though boffin-like quibblers could point out it’s actually the earth’s pedantic insistence on oscillating that does the trick – bringing with it the weather we normally expect in October. We quote Bali BMKG chief of data Nyoman Gede Wirajaya as our expert source: “The position of the sun is directly over the island in October, resulting in quite hot weather,” he said, further explaining that Bali’s position south of the equator affects the weather cycles. Thanks, Pak Nyoman. Glad you could clear that up. Daily highs average 33C in October but had been 35C. Perhaps at the BMKG 35C is not hotter than 33. We are assured that things will be cooler in November and December, when the sun has moved to the south and is fully-frying our neighbours in Australia.

That Sinking Feeling Tanjung Benoa is sinking, so it is said. Hundreds of residents of the mudflat and sandbar promontory at the northern end of Nusa Dua think so, at least, and as members of a group known as Harmony Bali they recently attempted to apprise the Governor of this unsettling information. Harmony doesn’t get a mention in police standard operating procedures, however. A handily present platoon of plods was resolute in denying them entry to the gubernatorial offices in Denpasar. An appeal to the shades of successive Venetian doges might possibly bear fruit. The Serenissima was built on much the same sort of shifting and watery ground. It was only stabilized – as an infrastructural entity we mean, not as a political community, which might be another similarity – when Medieval and later Venetians got among the aquatic stuff with megatons of reinforcing material and backed that action with rigid building controls that saved the islands of the lagoon from disappearing into the briny. In much of the world, you don’t build on mudflats and sandbars anyway, for very good reason.

Bali’s once little rugby tournament gets bigger every year! The 2013 Xclusive Property Bali Rugby Fest was another great rugby event put together by the Bali Rugby Club and played on the immaculate turf provided by the Canggu Club. Many new club sides were in attendance this year and those teams from the west coast and the east coast of Australia proved to be competitive with some managing to take home some of the silverware. Yet for all the new teams and faces, it was the Nedlands RUFC that returned to Bali for the fifth time and managed the take the top prize for the second time in their history – the Open Men’s Bali 10s Cup. They did so by defeating one the surprise teams of the tournament, fellow Western Australian club side: the Kalamunda Bulls 24-7. The victory was poignant as the team accepted the award in memory of their good friend Mike Denton, who was lost to all in Bali prior to the Nedlands’ 2011 Bali 10s campaign. The Bali Rugby Fest is not only about Men’s 10s as four women’s teams put on an entertaining display of 7-a-side rugby that was wholeheartedly supported by all those in attendance. Great interest centred around the two teams from Cendrawasih Muda “young birds of paradise” where most of the ladies hail from the Mama Sayang Orphanage located in Jonggol, south of Jakarta. In their last game between the Cendrawasih Reds and Cendrawasih Blues for the 3rd/4th place playoff, as a tribute to the great efforts shown by the young ladies of these teams throughout the weekend, participants from all the teams formed a ‘guard of honour’ or a ‘tunnel’ for the young ladies from these two teams to run through onto the field for this match. The camaraderie shown by all the participants will continue to live on as one of the fondest memories of the 2013 tournament. Meanwhile, the Selangor Dingoes from Malaysia won the Women’s Cup overcoming the NT Women 12-7 in a closely fought match. In other results, the Bali Chillis showed great form to make it into the top 8 of the competition, eventually being knocked out by the Gaulois Frenchman from Singapore after a match winning try by the Chillis was ruled to have been held up. The Gaulois made it to the Plate final but were defeated by fellow Singaporean team the Wanderers 10-0 who took the Plate. Newcomers, Griffith Uni from the Gold Coast defeated the Jakarta Komodos Red in the Bowl final 12-3, fellow newcomers and the most recognisable team as each member of their group was donning a cowboy hat; the Brigalow Bushwackers from country Queensland took home the Shield after defeating the Bush Turkeyz 12-5. The last of the silverware was a local derby awarded to the Sumbawa Nagas who collected the Jug after overcoming the Jakarta Komodos Green 12-5.

Tournament director, Kurt Lovell wishes to greatly thank his wife Faiz for her help and support, and also Nick Mesritz, Greg Hinchliffe and Chris Dharma who together made another great tournament that Bali can be proud of. Sponsorship and support from Neil Power of Xclusive Property, Luke Benlow of the Pullman Hotel Legian and also Heineken, SOS International, Anglo INFO and the staff from the Canggu Club that was most needed and very much appreciated. RUNNING NEWS Bali Half Marathon under the stars The Bali Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD) together with the provincial sports body (KONI), is organizing the Bali Sports Week with various fun and recreational sports events will be held, including a marathon, cycling, futsal, golf and motocross.

The main event ,Bali Highway Half Marathon and Run Under the Stars, which will be held on the evening of Nov. 17, taking in the island’s new Nusa Dua toll road. The sports week will be held at the same time as the annual Nusa Dua Fiesta, which will feature various art and culture events. “We have widely announced this event to domestic and international marathon communities, as well as to many tourism boards in various countries. We have received a lot of enthusiastic response,” said Ida Bagus Ngurah Wijaya, one of the board’s members. “This will be the first marathon event held on the toll road, under the full moon and the stars, and above the sea. Participants will start running as the sun goes down,” he said.

T o A d v e r t i s e C a l l 755392

There will be three categories in the race: half marathon for athletes and professional runners, 10-kilometer marathon for recreational runners and the 3.14-kilometer “Pi Fun Run” for families and groups of fun runners. With limited time for preparation — only two months — this inaugural event was expected to attract some 3,000 participants, Wijaya said, adding that the board would plan bigger events in the coming years. To attract more participants, the board is partnering with Garuda Indonesia. The national flag carrier will give 15 percent discount for economy class passengers on domestic flights and 20 percent discount for economy class international flights during the days leading up to the event. Wijaya finally adding “that anyone interested in taking part could register through”

Sailing with the Experts It amazing sometimes what you can learn when you are talking with interesting people. In this case it was Joris Kolijn, General Manager of SeaTrek Sailing Adventures. For example, did you know that Alfred Russell Wallace formulated the theory of natural selection while lying in bed with a raging fever in Ternate here in Indonesia? And that he immediately wrote a letter to Charles Darwin and so began the discussion that eventually led to the publication of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Also one of the smaller Spice Islands was traded by the English to the Dutch for a swampy bit of real estate now called Manhattan. You can learn all this and much more if you book one of the company’s sailing trips as journeying with SeaTrek Sailing Adventures is not just a sail trip lolling on the deck watching the waves roll by. It as an adventure of a lifetime with western tour guides, experts in their chosen fields on board, who provide heaps of information and knowledge which only adds to the fun. Joris said that the itineraries SeaTrek has developed, “are about enhanced content, looking into the history and trying to understand the local people and enjoying the stunning natural environment of the beautiful places you visit.”

The Experts Ian Burnett is a retired Aussie that has spent a lot of time in Indonesia and is an expert on the history of the Spice Islands and the shenanigans that the Dutch and English got up to chasing the almighty dollar in trade of the enormously profitable spices like nutmeg, cloves and pepper. Earlier in the year, the Bali Advertiser’s, Siapa column did an interview with Ian which is well worth reading. Interesting guy and along the way has written two books, “The Spice Islands” and “The East Indies” published by Rosenberg. You can buy them here in Bali at Periplus Books or if you are reading this on the web far from Bali check out his web page, just Google Ian Burnet and you will find it. The number of famous sailors that have visited the Spice Islands is very interesting. Sir Francis Drake, Tasman, Magellan and Captain Cook to name a few and to anchor in place where they did would be an experience worth having for those interested in maritime history. Tony Whitten is from UK Flora and Fauna International and is an expert on, you guessed it. the flora and fauna of Eastern Indonesia. He is a big fan of Wallace and knows a great deal about where and when Wallace went collecting birds, butterflies, beetles and even an orangutan or two to preserve and then ship back to England to study and then display to the public. Wallace is reputed to be the first white man to see the exotic Bird of Paradise at the Raja Ampat islands off the coast of Papua. It took him many attempts and nearly wet himself when he finally did see one. For the bird watching romantics out there one trip in SeaTrek’s itinerary is accompanied by Alexander Reeuwijk an expert ornithologist. Next year Joris is planning a trip looking at textiles and traditional weaving in and around Sumba. Not all trips have experts on board but are regularly scheduled throughout the year. And don’t forget the monsoon switches from SE to NW each year and affects the itinerary as well.

The Boats A lot of phinisi boats are now built in Kalimantan whereas before the main boat building area was southern Sulawesi. The boat builders tend to follow the timber so a lot of boat builders moved to Kalimantan where the timber is a lot better quality than that remaining in Sulawesi. The sv Ombak Putih which translates as the white wave was built in a muddy deserted piece of dirt near a river at Batulicin in SE Kalimantan The keel is a solid chunk of timber that is 23m by 40cm by 40cm. After one year of fairly solid work the hull was finished. To get the hull into the water a 50m canal, 7m wide by 3m deep, was dug out the mud. It took six men about one month to get the job done. Heavy, dirty and difficult work. First you use a mattock to dig out a watermelon size bit of mud. Then you roll it into a ball and toss it up to your co-worker who throws it to another to get the mud away from the work site. The boat then sailed to Tanjung Perak, the old canal-type harbour of Surabaya for the final fit out. The main deck is big and roomy and is where all the fun activities of the trip happen. Down below are twelve large cabins with air-conditioning (individually controlled) and private bathrooms with warm and cold water. Don’t worry you get the little soap and shampoo bottles etc. that most hotels provide.

On the upper deck you can sleep under the stars. Mattresses and light blankets are available as, even in the tropics, it can cool out on the waters. The sv Ombak Putih is a mix of traditional and modern design. Her hull and rigging are traditional, while the deck house and interior were custom designed to adapt to Western tastes of space, privacy and comfort. While Indonesian traditional sailing vessels are customarily referred to as Bugi Schooners, strictly speaking she is rigged as a Ketch, the foremast being higher than the aft mast. The smaller sv Katharina was first spotted as a hull still under construction by the founder of SeaTrek, Dick Bergsma, when he paid a courtesy visit to some old Buginese friends who had moved to Batulicin. The hull was much more slender than most he had seen up till then. Dick has an eye for beauty and was attracted to the elegant sheer or curve of her deck line. She is different from most traditional Phinisi’s because she ended up being a joint effort between western naval architects and traditional Bugis skills. The superstructure and the interior were redesigned to accommodate smaller groups of passengers for cruising in comfort with all first world mod cons. Both boats are regularly maintained and have all the required safety gear such as SSB, VHF radios, life jackets life rafts and even a sat phone. The crew are friendly and know the waters well with a couple of them have been there from the start. And don’t forget the experts too. For more info check out SeaTrek’s excellent web page.

Letters To Bali Advertiser Welcome to Hotel Prisons Dear Sir,

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at Those beautiful Portobello mushrooms found in the supermarket beg to be purchased. Here they’re grilled on an inexpensive stove top grill and adorned with sautéed chopped fresh herbs. You can easily vary the herbs with what’s available. The grill can be found in most supermarkets, such as Tiara Dewata, or in a pinch fry them quickly in a hot pan with olive oil

Grilled Mushrooms with Parsley and Rosemary Serves 4 Ingredients: - 200 gr. Portobello mushrooms - 2 1/2 Tbl. olive oil - sea salt and pepper to taste - 3/4 cup white wine or stock - 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped - 1 lemon, juiced - 3 Tbl. fresh parsley, chopped - 1 Tbl. fresh rosemary, finely chopped - 1 tiny pinch of cayenne, or a few drops of Tabasco sauce Directions: Remove the mushroom stems, clean and set aside. Clean the caps and brush them with the olive oil. Sprinkle with sea

salt and a few grindings of fresh black pepper. Set aside. Heat the grill over a medium flame on top of the stove. When it’s hot arrange the mushroom caps on it and grill both sides until browned. If they’re sticking, brush with more oil. (If you are browning them in a pan, heat 1 Tbl. of olive oil until hot but not smoking and add the mushroom caps, turning to brown. Allow the juices to evaporate.)

How many Gulag prison-inspired, cinder-block eyesores, with papier mâché facades does Bali need? These soulless buildings, called hotels, with faux-hip names - provide absolutely nothing, except visual pollution. The more these ugly constructions pop-up (just like weeds), the less appealing Bali becomes. The least the Government could do is to mandate that the buildings incorporate local design elements and thus better blend in to the surroundings. Adrian McKay, Jakarta


While the caps are grilling, make the sauce. Finely chop the mushroom stems. Heat a frying pan with the remaining olive oil. Add the wine or stock, lemon juice, chopped mushroom stems, parsley, rosemary and the pinch of cayenne or Tabasco sauce. Allow this to bubble until most of the liquid has evaporated but the mixture is not dry, 5-7 minutes. When the mushroom caps are browned on both sides, arrange them on a serving plate. Pour the herb sauce over them.

Note: A pinch of cayenne or a few drops of Tabasco brighten dishes without making them spicy hot.

More Harm to Tourism Hi, I am writing to you for I do not know where to complain elsewhere : When I had been in Bali, I was buying at Jxxx´s Shop in Jln.Legian, Kuta 4 Bangles. I was told it is Sterling Silver and the stamp was shown to me. Total amount was Rp 1.050.000 plus Credit Card Fee.(see inv. + Credit card slip here attached). Being back in Germany, we realized that the stuff was metal, only slightly silver plated. I think, it is important to report this, for it is not at all supporting the trust, tourist should have when buying in Bali. Greetings from the cold, Jutta Franziska
