C/Ns/P-25 Jan. 12

The Descendants Alexander Payne is the American director who brought us ‘About Schmidt’ (2002) and ‘Sideways’ (2004). His latest off-beat comedy is another smash hit. A successful Hawaiian businessman is negotiating a real estate deal, when his wife is injured in a serious motorboat accident. She falls into a permanent coma, and when the doctors advise that there is no hope, they suggest ‘pulling the plug’. As the businessman goes about notifying family and friends to say their goodbyes, very shocking revelations about his wife’s private life come to the surface. George Clooney is absolutely superb in this movie. From his first appearance he is thoroughly engaging and captivating. This is a subtle ‘human relationships’ film which you will find fascinating. The Artist French screenwriter and director Michel Hazanavicius creates, of all things, a black and white silent movie. Set in 1927, a handsome silent movie star finds that with the advent of ‘talkies’ he might just become redundant. Meanwhile, a beautiful and witty ingénue, who he is attracted to, is all set to become an overnight ‘singing and dancing’ sensation. If you are familiar with the many reincarnations of the classic movie ‘A Star is Born’, then you might recognize much of the plot re-worked in this new movie. However, Hazanavicius also pays tribute to many other ‘classics’, such as ‘Singing in the Rain’, ‘Sunset Boulevard’ and ‘Citizen Kane’. He makes a fabulous and nostalgic homage to the styles and cinema techniques of the Golden Years of Hollywood. Dedicated movie buffs are going to adore this marvelous movie. Dolphin Tale This movie, directed by Charles Martin Smith, is inspired by a true story. A young boy finds a Dolphin washed up on a beach and entangled in a crab net. After untangling the net, the Dolphin is taken to an aquarium hospital, and there the boy and Dolphin bond. However, the Dolphin’s tail has been severely damaged by the net and has to be amputated. As things progress, the boy meets a prosthetic surgeon, who agrees to design a new false tail for the Dolphin, and thus save its life. Keep a box of Kleenex tissues handy while you watch the movie. You are going to need them. All the same, this is a wonderful family movie which both children and adults will fully enjoy. We Bought A Zoo After the death of his wife, a freelance journalist decides to give his children a new perspective on life, and he buys a dilapidated Zoo and tatty Wild Life Adventure Park. To meet health regulations, they all must re-vamp the park before its big re-opening in the up-coming July tourist season. Also inspired by real events, director Cameron Crowe, the man responsible for ‘Jerry Maguire’ (1996), creates an entertaining movie which moves along at its own leisurely pace. This allows for plenty of time to heal painful family issues, and for fun and games with the animals. For once, Matt Damon gives a believable and convincing performance, and he is quite good in the movie. Scarlett Johansson is passable as the Head Zoo Keeper, and as Matt’s love interest. This is another pleasant family movie which everyone should enjoy. Puss in Boots Adults are going to be bored to tears with this computeranimated cartoon, but, very young children are just going to love it! Puss in Boots and Humpty Dumpty get up to all sorts of mischief when they climb Jack’s Magic Beanstalk, and try to steal the Goose that lays the Golden Eggs. Antonio Banderas provides the voice for Puss, and he gives it heaps of Spanish flair. Fright Night Now, something for the more mature. The first ‘Fright Night’

Diary by Mr. Robet

was made in 1985, and you have to wonder why anyone would want to muck around with Tom Holland’s classic cult ‘black’ comedy. Anyway, director Marti Noxon has a go at it, and this re-make is just as funny and scary as the original. A teenage boy suspects that his next door neighbor is a vampire, and when he gets irrefutable proof of this, he enlists the aid of a Las Vegas magician to help him kill the monster. Irish actor Colin Farrell makes a terrific vampire. The Three Musketeers Starting in 1911, this movie has been re-made in 1914, 1921, 1935, 1939, 1948, 1973, and 1993. This version, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, has nothing new to offer, except 3D, and some awful liberties with the script, which is derived from the tale found in Alexandre Dumas’s classic novel. Even so, the sets and costumes and special-effects are all pretty spectacular. The Double A CIA operative and a FBI agent have to team up, to find a killer who is committing a series of copycat murders based on the work of a presumed dead Russian spy. Written and directed by Michael Brandt, Richard Gere and Topher Grace star in this rather run of the mill espionage action thriller. New Year’s Eve A whole lot of inter-connected romantic short stories find their conclusion on New Year’s Eve, at midnight, in Times Square, New York. This comedy is directed by Garry Marshall, and it stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Jon Bon Jovi, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Penny Marshall, Katherine McNamara, Jessica Biel, Robert De Niro, Sarah Paulson, Alyssa Milano, Patrick Reale, Leah Michelle, Halle Berry, Hilary Swank, and Mathew Broderick. That’s pretty impressive. It’s a pity the movie isn’t!

Mystic Teacher

past lives. He was a healer, teacher and clairvoyant and had the power to peer deep down into your soul and see your past lives. What did he tell you? Boudewijn confirmed my inner knowledge of my past reincarnations. He told me in one of my past lives I was a Native American, an Apache woman, who was working with a shaman as a herbalist. He also described my other lives in different parts of the world as a politician, a counselor, a teacher, a high priestess and a movie star. This helped explain why as a child I always wanted to be in the theater and how I loved to dance and sing for my grandmother! Later on in Bali I discovered one of my last incarnations was as a member of the high caste in India. I even saw my beautiful wedding in Rajasthan!

C/Ns/G-7 Sept. 11

When was your first visit to Bali? I came to Bali for the first time in 1988 for a holiday with my ex-husband and fell in love with the island. It was like coming home. A clairvoyant told me that I had spent two previous lives in Bali, one life in the village Pesingganhan near Kusamba and another life in the Batukaru area of Tabanan. Perhaps this is why the Hindu religion has always attracted me. Is a person’s name important?

Erna Twechuizen was born in Hoboken in the Flemish part of Belgium, and grew up as the only child in a Catholic family. In 1991, she made her home in Bali and in 1997 became an Indonesian citizen. Erna presently lives with her partner Fery in Renon and makes her living as a numerologist, Tarot Card reader and clairvoyant. What were like as a child? I was born with the mystic in me, inherited from my powerful Scorpio mother - the sign of occult power. Even as a young girl I was interested in what people couldn’t see, or hear or prove, but I knew still existed. I knew that there was more than just our tangible, everyday world. I would wonder about the meaning of angels and would often ask my grandmother how I could become an Angel. I also discovered at a very early age that I had a strong sense of intuition. Sometimes I knew in advance when things would happen. How did you become interested in the Tarot? I had always been deeply interested in the symbols of life and death and how unseen forces affected my life, so learning about astrology and Tarot came naturally to me. It opened up a curiosity and a yearning to understand the Universe and the Cosmos. I took my first lesson in astrology in Antwerp and in 1979, then studied the stars further in Den Haag and Drunen in the Netherlands. What other spiritual discipline are you involved in? I’m interested in all sorts of esoteric knowledge. In the late 1970s I discovered that combined numbers from my studies of astrology and Tarot could predict someone’s birth date. This was when my interest in numerology was born, at first as a hobby and then later as a profession. Numbers can tell what aspects of our lives we should pay attention to. Numerology was already ancient knowledge, started in 562 BC by Pythagoras.

A person’s name is a very important part of his or her life. Every person’s name stands for a certain number that belongs just to that person. Names point the way in our lives, tell us what path we must take, direct us to our destiny. From this number alone, I can foretell what the year lying ahead will bring for you. In your soul number I can see your past lives which sometime influence your present life, as well as your inner desires and wishes. For a complete reading, I will need your original name at time of birth and all of your nicknames. From your date of birth I can tell you about your health, character, profession and the lessons you need to learn. In what other ways are names and numbers important? Choosing a name for your child and the name of your company can both be crucial. The names need to have the right vibrations. There’s also the best time to open a shop or any kind of business, to move into a house, even the date you get married. Which date is good for the couple? Choosing your hotel room number, your license plate number, your table number at a restaurant, your house number all can be important decisions. What are the potential weaknesses in your home with this specific number?

C/Ns/I-25 Jan 12

These mystical teachings are often called “pseudo sciences.” Do they really work? I am constantly surprised at how numbers and symbols are able to guide people and help them make healthy decisions. We are confronted with numbers and symbols every day – license plate numbers, phone numbers, bank account numbers, PIN numbers, etc. I can’t imagine living my own life without being guided by numbers, and I love guiding people via the numbers in their lives. A clairvoyant once told me that I work with the energy of angels. Where can readers learn more about the services that you offer? Contact:

What person has had a big influence in your life? In 1984 I met Boudewijn Leliveld who became really important in my life. He was an Indonesian man born in Holland who was working with energies, auras and chakras. I attended one of his lectures, then together with my exhusband enrolled in his course in Tilburg in 1985. I was very moved, especially with his discussions about people’s

Peace Begins at Birth ‘Every mother is a hero’ - Robin Lim, midwife in Bali By Skye Laphroaig

A certified midwife, who recently shook hands with Hillary Clinton when she scooped a top award, would rather be on her hands and knees on the floor rubbing the back of a mother in labour. Robin Lim, or “Ibu Robin”, as s h e i s affectionately known, offers free birthing services and medical aid in Indonesia, a country where many families cannot afford p r o p e r healthcare. Robin is a midwife who has worked in the U.S, the Philippines and is now based at Yayasan Bumi Sehat health clinic on the outskirts of Ubud. Robin moved with her husband and large family to Bali in 1993 from Iowa and set up Bumi Sehat in 1995. She represents a group of Balinese medical professionals, donors and volunteers around the world, who strive for equality and improved reproductive healthcare for women. “Mother Robin” has led medical teams coping with the tsunami in Aceh, Indonesia, and the earthquakes that hit Yogyakarta, Padang and also Haiti. As the co-founder and executive director of Yayasan Bumi Sehat (Helping Mother Earth Foundation), Robin Lim has inspired many worldwide. Her relentless work needs all the financial support available at this time. Increased contributions will allow more and more women around the world to hopefully experience what we in the developed world, often take for granted, a safe and healthy childbirth. On December 11, 2011 Robin Lim was named CNN Hero of the Year. In her acceptance speech to millions of television viewers she said: “Today on our earth, 981 mothers in the prime of their life will die - today, tomorrow again, and yesterday and I’m asking you to change that. We don’t even know how many babies are lost, but all of us can help.” Lim says: “The very best way for you to help save lives is to support your mother to midwifery care by donating to midwifery led maternity clinics and also support the midwifery model of care at home in your own communities. Remember, midwives are the bridge that women may cross over into safe motherhood and we can save lives together, both mothers and babies. Every mother counts - gentle birthing and community health care is a human right”. Robin is a busy woman. If she isn’t delivering a baby, she’s mothering her own eight children. All of her children, except the two youngest, worked at Bumi Sehat Aceh after the tsunami. Since the award, up to 200 emails per day appear in her email box to congratulate her, request an interview or invite Ibu Robin to be a guest speaker at an event. When I visit her clinic, Robin still has a happy glow about her as a result of winning the CNN award and we reflect on that moment. VICTORY The announcer of the CNN Hero of the Year awards stood on stage at a Los Angeles auditorium with millions of people watching worldwide. This year, the campaign received over 10,000 submissions from more than 100 countries. Only two of the producers are aware of the results an hour before the show and the conclusion was a complete surprise for Robin. Out of the 113,000 people Bumi Sehat has given free medical care to since 2005, very few have access to a computer, so Robin assumed one of the other nominated Heroes would get most votes. However, Robin’s victory is a landslide having won the majority (over six million votes from supporters online). Robin tells me she would have felt like a failure to all mothers had the outcome been any different, so I ask who was the driving force behind the many votes? “People all over the world and especially in the Philippines got involved from day one of voting, but it was the efforts of Akarumput. com, an organization who started their own grassroots movement to spread the word via the Indonesian media, who made sure I won. Most people at the clinic don’t have computers so we set one up and pregnant women were literally leaning forward during the final stages of childbirth to vote online.” So who are Robins heroes? “My Filipino grandmother, Vicenta Munar Lim, was a “Hilot” - a healer and a baby catcher (midwife)

before there were hospitals in the Cordillera Mountains near Baguio City in the Philippines. Imagine her during World War II, catching babies for the refugees! She is my hero. She had to live with real courage, to feed an entire camp of dozens of people, with one sweet potato and the edible weeds she would gather. You can read more about her in my novel: ‘Butterfly People’, available from Bumi Sehat.” HUMBLE BEGINNINGS Robin Lim first became a mother 35 years ago as a teenager. Her daughter was born gently and softly, with the help of midwives at home and her first experience of having a baby was very positive. But tragically, 21 years ago, Robin’s sister Christine and her unborn baby died during pregnancy due to complications. This was in the United States, a country that spends more money on pregnancy and childbirth technology than any other country on this planet. Statistically, it is safer to be pregnant and to give birth in 38 countries other than the USA and less expensive too. Robin believes her community-based solution is more effective than projects that throw billions of dollars at technology used in childbirth. Robin’s response to grief over her sister’s death led her on the path to become a midwife. When her family came to Bali, she realized how many women on the island were having problems getting adequate health care. The well known Balinese Doctor Inne Susante came to meet Robin and showed her the studies she had conducted for UNICEF, proving the leading cause of adult death on this island was haemorrhage after childbirth and she encouraged Robin to do something about it. With the help of some devoted Indonesian volunteers, Robin began to hold pre-natal care clinics at her home and eventually opened the Yayasan Bumi Sehat in the village of Nyuh Kuning. GENTLE BIRTHS Gentle birth can happen at home or in small childbirth centres like Bumi Sehat. The most important ingredient is that a baby should not be separated from the mother and the mother’s wishes should be respected. She may give birth squatting, in water or lying on her side and may choose when her baby’s umbilical chord is cut. Robin states: “Being born without trauma is a foundation for having an intact capacity to love and trust.”

more women the chance to break the cycle of poverty, obtain better nutrition, have access to higher levels of maternity care, and aid the reduction in maternal and infant mortality. CHALLENGES HIV and its social stigma, is beginning to enter the equation within Bumi Sehat’s daily work, making the clinic’s task more daunting. In a culture where women are afraid to disclose their HIV/AIDS status due to the threat of being ostracized from their village and excluded from cultural ceremonies, Bumi Sehat provides confidentiality, counselling, understanding and free testing. Medical insurance is not affordable to 95 per cent of Balinese people and Bumi Sehat runs on a donation basis. All in-house services are provided regardless of a woman’s ability to pay. The average family earns the equivalent of $8 a day, according to t h e International Monetary Fund, but a normal hospital delivery without complications costs around $70. A Caesarean section can cost more than $700. The clinic provides pre-natal examinations, essential vitamins, daily physician-run clinics, medical clinics, water-birthing, and post-natal care operating 24/7. Bumi Sehat believes that breast-feeding must be established before mother and child return to their village because a bottle fed baby in Indonesia is 300 times more likely to die in her first year of life, compared to the survival rate of breastfed babies. NATURAL BIRTHING When a birth goes well, it is a beautiful experience, but unfortunately there are sometimes complications. With every pregnancy and birth, a woman’s risk of dying increases. Robin admits she cries silently when each baby is born. I ask her how she would define the love between a mother and her baby.

According to the United Nations Population Fund, three out of five women giving birth in South Asia do so without a skilled birth attendant on hand which means that the quality of perinatal and postnatal care v a r i e s w i d e l y. O n e consequence of this is the high rate of infant mortality. Robin has been addressing this problem as she goes about building capacity for the Bumi Sehat midwives who deliver babies and sending students to midwifery college, which costs more than the Western equivalent.

“Wow, that question makes me cry. I may be a poet, but I cannot describe that kind of love,” she says.

“In 2011 we have averaged about 40 babies a month” she explains. “If one day we don’t have a birth at Bumi Sehat Bali, we know the next day there will be a flood of them. Our biggest night was when it was pouring with rain and in 24 hours we received 11 babies into the world”

THE FUTURE OF CHILDBIRTH Women of Indonesia keenly practise family planning. Most have just one or two children (Dua anak cekup - two children is enough). This is why Robin gets so upset about the high maternal mortality rate in Asia.

LIFE GOES ON For winning CNN Hero of the Year, Lim received an additional $250,000 grant towards Bumi Sehat the not-for-profit foundation. How does the woman who recently shook hands with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton feel to be chosen as a Top 10 CNN Hero?

“Women in the prime of their lives should not being dying just because they are having a first or second baby. Every mother should be healthy and strong and every birth should be safe and loving.”

“I cannot answer this, as I am still unable to believe it happened, ”Robin says. “I so wished to become the number one CNN Hero as a statement highlighting the needs of mothers and babies. When I actually received the award, I was not prepared for being in the limelight. I am much more comfortable kneeling on the floor rubbing the back of a mother in labour, receiving her baby into this world. The real hero is the ordinary woman who is giving birth at this moment. I am so happy that a midwife was chosen for the award.” As for the future, Bumi Sehat has secured land in Nyuh Kuning village and construction of a new earthquake-proof clinic will begin this year. Robin believes better economic opportunities will give

The complications of a caesarean section to the infant can interfere with early contact bonding between mother and child. Robin is an avid proponent of gentle natural birthing, including water birthing; team Bumi Sehat provides this natural delivery technique. Robin believes that a delay in the cutting of the umbilical cord makes a huge difference to a baby’s ability to receive her full blood supply, and contributes to a stronger immune system. This no-cost protocol increases the child’s iron stores, helping to improve infant survival rates. Lim says: “Women suffer and die in pregnancy and childbirth at the rate of 981 per day worldwide. Why? It’s because they are malnourished. Poverty forces a pregnant woman to survive by eating one or two servings of white rice or noodles a day. They are cheap and fast to cook so you don’t need to buy fuel so often, but they fill your belly with zero nutritional value.”

Since 2005, approximately 4,000 babies have been delivered at the clinic. For Ibu Robin, constantly raising the $600 per day operational funds is her biggest challenge. Please consider making a tax-free donation to Yayasan Bumi Sehat today. Robin Lim, CPM, is a poet and midwife. Her latest book, Geometry of Splitting Souls, is available on Amazon or from Bumi Sehat.

STD’s - How You Can Eliminate Them C/He/P-27 July 11

There are over 25 diseases that are spread through sexual contact. In this article I am going to look at the most common sexually transmitted diseases and then I will outline what you can do about treating them effectively and safely. Chlamydia – The Most Common STD Chlamydia is the most common STD and is caused by the bacterium chlamydia trachomatis. It is estimated that up to 8 million new infections take place with this bacteria each year in the USA alone. 75% of women and 50% of men with chlamydia won’t notice any symptoms and won’t even know they are infected. Symptoms that can appear include: abnormal discharge of either mucous or pus from vagina or penis, and pain or burning upon urination. Chlamydia is transmitted during any type of sexual contact with an infected partner. In addition, a pregnant woman may pass the infection to her newborn during delivery, with subsequent neonatal eye infection or pneumonia. Chlamydia can also lead to premature birth or low birth weight. The throat can also be infected as can the rectum and the eye (“pink eye”). Chlamydia infections can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), a serious complication that is a major cause of infertility in women of childbearing age. Each year, approximately 500,000 women in the United States develop PID due to chlamydia infections. Chlamydia infection is easily confused with gonorrhea because the symptoms of both diseases are similar. Gonorrhea Gonorrhea remains the second most common STD and is caused by the bacterium neisseria gonorrhoeae. It infects approximately 2 million people in the USA each year (most of these are unreported and possibly not treated) and it is most common in younger people aged from 15 to 29 years: it can infect people of any age however. The symptoms in men are: pain and burning when urinating and a yellowish or white discharge from the penis. There can also be swelling and pain in the testicles. In women the symptoms are the same with a discharge and pain on urinating, and also possibly bleeding between menstrual periods, painful intercourse, lower abdominal pain and also heavy periods. If gonorrhea is not treated, it can also spread into the fallopian tubes leading to inflammation and infertility. The bacteria can also spread to the bloodstream and infect the joints, heart valves, or the brain. Rectal infection in men and women includes discharge, anal itching, soreness, bleeding, and sometimes painful bowel movements. Genital Herpes This is a highly contagious condition estimated to affect up to 50 million people in the USA alone with over half a million new cases each year. It is caused by the herpes simplex virus (types 1 and 2) and most people have either no or minimal symptoms or signs of infection. HSV-1 usually causes sores on the lips (known as cold sores), but it can cause genital infections through oral-genital or genital-genital contact. HSV-2 typically causes one or more blisters on or around the genitals or rectum. Sores can also appear on other parts of the body where broken skin has come into contact with HSV. The virus remains in certain nerve cells of the body for life, causing symptoms usually at times of stress or poor nutrition. Genital Warts Genital warts are growths that occur on the vagina, anus, cervix, penis, scrotum, or thigh. They may be raised or flat, small or large, or clustered to form cauliflower-like shapes. The warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is also linked to cervical cancer and other genital cancers. HPV is one of the most common causes of sexually transmitted disease in the world. About 24 million people in the USA have HPV infections. Some cause common skin warts, while about one third of the HPV types are transmitted by sexual contact and reside in genital tissue without causing warts. HPV infection often shows no symptoms—it is estimated that almost half of the women infected with HPV have no obvious symptoms. Like other STDs, individuals with HPV infection are largely unaware of the potential risk they pose for transmission to others. There have been found to be over 80 HPV types, many of which are known to cause genital warts. Some types also have been associated with cancer. HPV can be detected in 93% of all cervical cancers, however the virus alone will not induce cervical cancer. Other factors include oral contraceptive use, poor nutrition, a weakened immune system, pregnancy, and smoking. Syphilis Syphilis is caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. Although the incidence of syphilis has decreased during the 1990’s, it is now on the rise again, with a 70% increase incidence in men over the past 5 years. The first stage begins with genital

sores (or chancres), which appear up to 3 weeks following exposure, but may even take 3 months to appear. They can be present on the penis, vagina, or rectum, but also may appear on the tongue, cervix, and other parts of the body. Second stage syphilis is evidenced by a generalized rash which appears up to 10 weeks after the chancres heal. It is similar to the rash present in measles and may cover the whole body or just parts such as the palms of the hands or soles of the feet. Headaches and fever may also be present. After this the illness goes into a latent of silent stage and stays dormant for various lengths of time. It is very difficult to detect in this stage. If left untreated about one third of people develop the final or tertiary stage of syphilis, in which the bacteria damage the heart, eyes, brain, nervous system, bones, joints, or almost any other part of the body. Late syphilis is a terrible disease, because it can result in mental illness, blindness, other neurological problems, heart disease, and death. How You Can Eliminate STD’s The very first step is having the necessary tests performed so you can find out what the exact problem is. This is relatively straight forward and involves either swabs or blood tests. Once a firm diagnosis has been made then you can move onto the treatment phase. For all of the above bacterial infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis, antibiotics are usually prescribed as the only treatment. Whilst this generally is an appropriate treatment and does in most cases eliminate the disease, more and more drug resistant bacteria are becoming commonplace. For example antibiotic resistant strains of gonorrhoea are becoming more common and have made the commonly used antibiotics obsolete. Anti-viral drugs are used for herpes, however they do not cure the problem and will not eliminate the disease. They are merely aimed at reducing the outbreak severity. Genital warts can be removed using freezing or cautery, however once again the virus will not be removed from your body. The most promising alternative therapies for all of the above conditions are ozone therapy and Rife electro-frequency therapy. I don’t have the space to go into more details here however both of these treatments have been shown to effectively destroy and remove all traces of bacteria and viruses from your body if performed regularly and correctly. Using these therapies can most certainly not only remove unwanted disease such as STD’s but can also vastly improve your health in many other ways.

the art of body Prescription for the Adrenaline Junkie An adrenaline junkie is a person addicted to the thrill of the adrenaline rush: the exciting, pleasurable effect produced when the adrenal glands dump a large dose of adrenaline into the bloodstream. The adrenaline rush usually occurs when the body senses danger, the “Fight or Flight” moment. Your heart rate increases, pleasure-giving endorphins are released by the pituitary gland and your breathing rate ramps up. The result of all this extra oxygen, energy and hormones is the adrenaline high, a euphoric feeling that can last for hours. Your Prescription: If you are a natural adrenaline junkie and need your ‘fix’ in Bali, I have found the perfect prescription for you. Canyoning is probably the most exciting adrenaline sport I have ever done and now its here in Bali! What is Canyoning? The relatively new sport of canyoning was largely unknown until the 1990s. Even now, it’s more popular in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. Canyoning consist of: hiking, jumping, leaping, rappelling, and sliding down a usually wet slot canyon, with pools of water, running water, and/or waterfalls. In most cases, these canyons require climbing gear and are often termed Technical Canyoning. Traditionally, these types of canyons have been pursued in Spain, France, New Zealand, Australia and now in Bali!

C/He/G-30 Nov. 11

To sum it up, these canyon explorations are Adventure Travel with a capital A! Every canyon varies, but the following description, from a trip I did with Adventure and Spirit Canyoning in Bali went a bit like this: First, you’ll put on a wet suit. You’ll be in and out of the water repeatedly; without a wet suit, the constant evaporation will quickly chill you. The wet suit also provides protection against scrapes if you get too close to a rock wall. After some safety guidelines and a big meal, you proceed into the canyon. Now, you start down. First comes a water slide. For centuries, water and sand have ground a smooth slot into the rock. It’s as easy as your first time on the slide in kindergarten... and probably about as scary. Just sit at the top ... push off ... and splash! it’s over! You laugh, and watch the next person come down.

• • • • •

You dog-paddle through a basin of water, climb over a few rocks, and soon arrive at the next challenge: A water jump. You stand at the top of a small waterfall and look down. Here, the water has cleaned out a round pool, ten feet below. Your guide points to the deepest spot, and tells you to jump. Splash!! Two down.

Next, the guide secures you to a safety line and you inch along a wall, as the river descends below you. Just ahead, a giant boulder has lodged itself between the canyon walls, as the river shoots down a waterfall to a pool 80 feet below. Somehow, incredibly, you end up right on top of that boulder, safely secured by a belay rope, but nonetheless find yourself gripping the rock with all your strength. When the time comes for you to descend, you shuffle over to the guide. He ties you into a new safety rope, unties the rope anchoring you to the rock, and belays you as you rappel, with the waterfall thundering beside you, into the pool below. There’s more: On one waterslide, you can’t even see the bottom when you push off from the top. You may rappel through the next waterfall. Much of canyoning’s appeal stems from the fact that every canyon is different; each will present its own special features and challenges. The team at Adventure and Spirit make it an amazing experience. They offer canon trips for un-fit junkies to sportive canyon trips that are more for the athletic junkies. I definitely advise anyone and everyone to go. Its not just a great physical workout. It’s a lovely challenge ! How safe is canyoning? Any outdoor sport is inherently riskier than, say, watching television. (Physically riskier, that is. We would argue that television presents a bigger risk to your brain.) If you head out into an unknown canyon with just a rope, a buddy, and a lot of optimism, you’re definitely in high-risk territory. Most canyoning is done with guides, who are intimately familiar with every pool, slide, and waterfall in a particular canyon. Use of a qualified guide will greatly reduce, but will not eliminate, the risks of canyoning. Although, having said that, the team at Adventure and Spirit are highly professional and well trained.

MOSQUITOS…Ahhhhggggggg!!! Personal Repellants – What works? What doesn’t? The wet season is here again and so are the creatures that thrive in the wet, one of them being the mosquito. Apart from that annoying high-pitched buzz in your ear at night, the mosquito transmits serious illnesses such as dengue fever, malaria (not a big issue in Bali) and Japanese encephalitis. In fact they spread disease to more than 700 million people every year. From zappers to catchers to candles to sprays, mosquito repellents come in many forms. But which ones work? Do you seem to get eaten alive when others are left alone? You’re probably not just imagining it. Everyone’s body chemistry is a little different, and some people are more likely to attract unwanted insect advances than others are. Mosquitoes can sense your presence from far away. When you breathe out, you emit a plume of carbon dioxide that carries on the breeze, and CO2 also seeps from your skin. Mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide as well as the warmth and humidity you’re giving off. Hence those with a higher body temperature (eg pregnant women) are easily targeted. So here are some tips on how to stay off a mosquito’s menu. THE CHEMICAL STUFF DEET: Potent, But Safe One of the most effective mosquito repellents is one of the oldest around. DEET was first developed for use by the U.S. Army in 1946, and it became available to the public in 1957. Many other products have hit the market since then, but few compare to DEET. In fact, it’s one of two ingredients in mosquito repellent that the CDC recommends for preventing mosquito-borne diseases. The other is picaridin, and the CDC believes these two ingredients are more effective than other mosquito repellents. In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2002, researchers compared several types of mosquito repellents head-to-head in laboratory tests. Fifteen brave study volunteers took turns sticking an arm treated with mosquito repellent into a cage full of hungry bloodsuckers. The researchers took note of how long it took a mosquito to bite. Repellents containing about 24% DEET, fared the best. Its protection lasted an average of five hours. DEET has an excellent safety record, despite some people’s concerns. N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide doesn’t sound like something you’d want to spray on your skin, and perhaps its acronym reminds people of the dangerous and now banned insecticide DDT. They’re nothing alike, however. THE NATURAL STUFF Lemon eucalyptus oil The most effective natural mosquito repellent so far. A 2002 study in the New England Journal of Medicine compared different synthetic chemical and herbal repellents. A Lemon Eucalyptus Repellent provided 120.1 minutes of mosquito protection, more than a repellent with a low concentration of the chemical DEET (4.75% DEET provided 88.4 minutes of protection and 23.8% DEET, provided 301.5 minutes of protection). Geranium oil and soybean oil The New England Journal of Medicine study found that repellants containing these oils provided 94.6 minutes of protection against mosquitoes. This is slightly more effective than 4.75% DEET. Citronella A well-known natural mosquito repellent. The oils from the plant are used to make lotions, sprays, and candles. A University of Guelph study assessed the effectiveness of 3% citronella candles and 5% citronella incense in protecting subjects from bites. They found that subjects who were positioned near the citronella candles had 42.3%

C/He/G-30 Nov. 11

less bites and those near the citronella incense had 24.2% fewer bites. Based on these results, citronella candles shouldn’t be used as a stand-alone repellent, all though they may help in combination with topical repellents. The least effective products were wristbands treated with DEET or citronella, which offered almost no protection. According to the researchers, this wasn’t a surprise. It’s known that mosquito repellent only works on the surface to which it’s applied directly. Mosquitoes are happy to bite skin only four centimeters away from the repellent slick. THE RUBBISH– It just don’t work Garlic: Is there an old wives’ tale that doesn’t feature garlic? According to lore, the pungent-smelling plant can do everything from cure the common cold to help determine a baby’s sex to ward off witches. But though some believe garlic has powerful bug-repellent properties, mosquito control experts say it just does not work. Vitamin B: Can vitamin B tablets make you a less tasty treat to the biting menaces? Probably not. Though some people swear by it, when researchers at the University of Wisconsin asked volunteers to take placebos or capsules with vitamin B, they did not find any evidence that the substance could help reduce mosquito attraction. Bananas, Listerine, Dryer Sheets, Lemon Dish washing soap. Skin-so Soft and alcolhol have all been proven not to work The Electrical Stuff Most people have seen advertisements for fancy ultrasonic mosquito repelling devices intended to drive off mosquitoes by subjecting them to repelling ultrasonic vibrations. These gadgets sound great, except for one thing--they don’t work. Both scientific and anecdotal evidence indicates that as mosquito repellents, ultrasonic really don’t seem to have any effect. Don’t be fooled by expensive, high-tech gadgets!

OTHER WAYS TO DISCOURAGE THE BEAST • Mosquito nets, and screens can be used in problem areas. Babies and young children should always be protected by cot, or pram covers. • Avoid the use of perfumes or colognes • Wear long sleeved, loose light colored clothing while walking in garden areas. • Personal repellants may be used, however, they should be used with caution in the very young, or the elderly. • Make sure that your garden and surrounding area are free of water catchments, or that water containers are covered. • Keep larvae eating fish, such as guppies, in ponds. • Use chemical larvicides in ponds, drains or other water catchments. • Remove garbage, or unnecessary pots, bottles, cans etc from the garden area. • Mozzie coils, or vapor mats can be used indoors in the early mornings and late afternoons during the wet season.

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

The Benefits of Pilates

Pilates was originated by Joseph Pilates, who was very sickly with rickets and asthma. He decided he didn’t want to live that way, so he began studying anatomy and yoga to discover the best techniques for strengthening one’s body and immune system. This led to the development of his personal system of exercise. Joseph was interned during World War II. At that time, he didn’t have much to do, so he started to make contraptions out of the hospital beds. He was using levers and pulleys to strengthen the muscles which is how Pilates’ machines like ‘The Reformer’ were conceived. Joseph realized that he was on to something when there was a flu outbreak, and everyone who had been interned got ill, apart from the people who had been following his exercise regime. After the war, he started to work with ballerinas, and that’s how his reputation began to grow. Today there are hundreds of thousands of people doing Pilates all over the world. “The main principal of Pilates is all about being able to control your body and doing everything in a very correct way,” said Caroline Sandry, a certified Pilates and yoga instructor. “Pilates really focuses on anatomy and the alignment all of your muscles and joints, so that the correct muscle does the correct job. If your joint is out of alignment, then you could be doing the exercises all wrong. The key elements of Pilates are control, doing each exercise with slow speed and alignment, making sure that the body is aligned; precision, which goes along with control and alignment, and finally centering, by beginning each exercise from your core, which is the base of your foundation. This is your spine and the center of your body. By strengthening your core, you strengthen your whole body. I like to use the analogy of a crane. It has a very long, strong base and then the arm goes out on the side. Well, if you imagine that the base is the core, if that was weak then the arm would break it. The stronger your core is the more weight you can lift with your arms and utilize the power you have in your legs. Core strength is important for sports, spine health, posture and pregnant ladies. Core strength is really really important.” In Caroline’s own practice she has seen many clients who want to practice Pilates because they have been injured. Many times these are people who have bad backs or shoulder problems, as well as neck tension which may be causing headaches. These problems are often due to utilizing the wrong muscles. If you have poor posture, then your body isn’t working as it was designed to be. “Basically in your body you have large powerful muscles which are designed to move you. Muscles like biceps which move your arms, the quads of the thigh and the glutes. Then you have small, stabilizing muscles which most people aren’t aware of. If these smaller muscles aren’t activated, then the larger mobilizing muscles take over. When that happens that’s when you get pain, because these muscles aren’t designed to be switched on to support your skeleton all the time. They are designed to be used for movement. For example, poor posture can lead to so many problems. Weak abdominals is another thing. A lot of people have back problems because they have weak abdominal muscles, so their spine doesn’t have any support,” said Caroline.

Each joint in our bodies is designed to do a particular movement. For example the hip joint is designed to go backwards and forwards, but it’s also designed to circle. Most of the time people just move their legs backwards and forwards which can lead to stiffness. Caroline recommends a simple exercise for anyone with arthritis in the hips, in which you lie on your back and hold on to your knee and very gently circle your knee around so you’re getting that movement. This helps to increase your fluid which in turn helps to keep your hip joint lubricated. “What Pilates does is balance your body, so where you’re tight it will lengthen and where you’re weak it will strengthen. Most Pilates’ sessions should start with a postural assessment, looking at where a person is weak or tight. Then you can build a program to correct all those imbalances. Once you have that you can use it for life, because you learn so much about your body by doing Pilates. Then you can apply it to driving a car becoming more aware of your posture, playing tennis or working in the garden. With all of these things, if you apply the Pilates’ principals you’ll be healthier for the rest of your life.” Caroline recommends that to stay in shape, ideally one should do Pilates 2 – 3 times a week. If you’re coming from a basis of pain, then it would be good to do a minimum of 15 minutes a day which will help you control back pain. If you’re trying to get a flatter stomach or smaller waist, then it’s advisable to do 2 – 3 times a week for 45 minutes to an hour. You can’t really lose weight with Pilates, but toning and building more muscle can help you to burn fat. For best results for weight loss, you would need to combine Pilates with cardiovascular exercise. Pilates is really more about toning, correcting, strengthening and slimming. It is very safe, because you work within your own limits. When asked what is the difference between yoga and Pilates Caroline replied, “Yoga is designed to work on the mind and a side effect is a great body. The goal with Pilates is much more superficial – you correct your body and work on your imbalances. A side effect is that you do tend to relax, because you’re focusing on your breath and your movements.” For more information about Pilates, please visit: www.

HECTOR’S C/BT/I-23 March 11

Give Me Some Lava

Meghan’s Moment

Big Apple expat, Nagacia jewellery designer and FOH (Friend of Hector) Tricia Kim has added an enterprising string to her bow. She has designed some specially branded logo charms for a new snip, clip and stick salon in Johannesburg, South Africa. We’ve seen photographs of them and they’re beautiful. The new establishment is SoHo Salon – SoHo as in “South of Houston [street]” in Manhattan, New York, not central London’s Soho, which generations of British mothers warned their sons was dangerous (they never said it was also fun) – and according to its American operators it brings the first New York-style full-service salon to South Africa. It opened in January. We hear there are plans for a dozen more such places, which one assumes would translate into many more charms for the delightful Kim.

It’s nearly Bali Spirit Festival time again – it’s from March 28-April 1, safely after Nyepi on March 23, if you’d like to diarise the opportunity for yet another spirited Ubud opportunity – so it was no surprise to see the ubiquitous Meghan Pappenheim popping up in the previously mentioned MinYak. She’s a good sort, so it’s always a pleasure to see her. Pappenheim appeared as January’s colourful character, gave her standard responses to whowhat-why-when and a nice little promo for the event she founded as a cathartic comeback – like that other Ubud love-in, Janet DeNeefe’s annual writers’ and readers’ festival – after the first Bali bombings in 2002, and then told us what we all wanted to know: What’s she’s listening to on her iPod.

She tells us the charm she designed for SoHo is of white wood beads dyed red and lava stones. Lava has shamanistic power. It was used by First American nations, known as Indians or Red Indians in the days before the Sioux discovered they were homonyms for profitable litigation, to give warriors strength and clarity when entering battle. It has similarly shamanistic qualities in many other cultures. Kim has also designed lava stone totems for upmarket Bali spa retreat Desa Seni. Lava’s fiery origin is said to be good for people who might suffer from indecision. That could be useful in yoga class.

The Good Oil When the latest lovely little MinYak trotted into our inbox in mid-January, our inner spelling policeman woke up – he should have done so earlier, but we won’t develop that line of criticism – to the fact that its content is rendered in the American fashion. You know, with the twenty-first letter of the alphabet prominent by its absence. We asked the friendly chaps at The Yak and The Bud, which are run with thoroughly British aplomb, whether this apparent addiction to Eng (US) was by design or by default. In other words, had the mellifluous benefits of Eng (UK) ceded the field to the shorter-form forces of the Non-U push? One of them got back to us – like the MinYak and the print magazines it supports they are timely and generally pertinent, which in Bali is truly a blessing – and said this: “The man who does the MinYak is American. And so is my spellchecker.” So that would be a “yes,” then. There is a serious side to this. At last report, Indonesia officially uses Eng (UK) and it is this form that is supposed to be taught in schools, yet increasingly the Englishlanguage media – particularly and spectacularly the electronic media, which can’t spell anyway and wouldn’t know a past participle if it bit them on the bum – opts for American English. It’s not something for which one would choose to die in a ditch and indeed the American preference might be the better way for Indonesia. But it does pose questions. There’s an interesting – and very valuable – English language teaching programme getting under way here that’s being jointly run by the Australians and the Americans. The Aussies (those who can spell; a dwindling number) use British-derived English. Like the Singaporeans, Malaysians, Indians, Canadians, South Africans, New Zealanders and sundry others, they are “U” people. The Americans, of course, as we know, are defiantly Non-U. The programme’s internal correspondence might make interesting comparative reading. Moreover, American English is terse and truncated – some may define it as crisper, and that’s by no means an unwinnable argument – and does away with much of the colourful flourish that makes British English such a delight.

But Not From Canggu We found a little internet gem the other day, an online newspaper that calls itself The Hibernia Times – it does so in a delightfully unreadable ancient script, by the way, which oddly seems both apt and ironic – and claims it is Ireland’s web-connected newspaper. This singularity will surprise long-established journals such as The Irish Times (and others) that cover local, national and global news and events on the web as well as in print. Its web-blurb says the HT (do not confuse this with the Hindustan Times, which is an eminently readable journal) has an editorial policy that is to always be fair, impartial and balanced in news coverage. It says it would “love to hear your thoughts and views on this newspaper” and to email these, should such inspiration occur, to Its editor, like that of the near-comatose C151 Bali Times hereabouts, is unnamed; but we believe we know him well. We dropped him a line. It wasn’t just for old time’s sake. We’d still like to know (even if this is the age of instant communication, blah, blah, blah, etc, etc: see the HT website for the full dissertation) how William Furney – who Houdini-like departed Canggu for unknown locations in the Emerald Isle 15 months ago – finds it possible to seriously edit a Bali newspaper from half a world and eight time zones away; especially if you’re apparently also rattling out an allegedly round-the-clock e-sheet there. Still, a man’s got to earn a quiet crust, we suppose.

It turned out to be Lady Gaga. That would be a point of difference between us. The Diary long ago formed the view that only the Gaga bit accurately describes that particular unchained melody. But one should not be churlish. Perhaps Pappenheim doesn’t like to listen to Warren Zevon being prescient about his future at high volume, as he often is on the iPod at The Cage. I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead is rollicking rock, but it’s not for everyone. The Bali Spirit Festival does great work in the environmental and health fields, and particularly in countering the threat of HIV/AIDS. It also entertains mightily well, so good luck with this year’s, Meghan. There’s a free Spirit Festival-backed outdoor concert in Ubud on February 18, by the way.

Up For It We’ll be looking in on Jade Richardson’s writing course on erotica being held in Ubud in March. It should be fun as well as instructional. Too many people in these dumb days of post-literacy mistakenly conflate eroticism and pornography and assume you need continuous – goodness, we almost wrote “rolling” – pictorial assistance, when in fact all you need is a brain. It’s the fourth element of a quartet of courses the Ubud-resident Richardson has on the go. The first is Unlocking Creativity (Feb. 22, 23 and 25); next up is Travel Writing (Feb. 28, 29); then comes Advanced Creative Writing (Mar. 1, 2, 4; we’ll look in on that one as well); and then Erotica (Mar. 8, 9, 11).

Still Trying Here at The Cage we’ve been customers of Telkomsel’s Kartu Halo mobile phone system since 2006. Until last October, it worked well enough. There were one or two of the little stumbles that one becomes accustomed to in Indonesian public bureaucracy, but it more or less functioned. Since October, however, it has been impossible to pay. Telkomsel’s successive monthly bills have not been accessible, because they are not ready. The wonderful term here is “in process,” which of course means nothing of the sort. In November we were in Australia, where using an Indonesian mobile phone can be quite expensive. So we’d dearly like to pay the outstanding accounts, especially as another Australia trip is looming. But the “all calls” function on our phones continues to be unhelpful. On January 26, for example, unhelpfulness came with a new message: “Mohon maaf, system sedang sibuk. Silahkan ulangi berberapa saat lagi.” ( “We’re sorry, the system is busy. Please try a couple of times again.”) Gosh! It must be all those irritated customers trying to find out how much they have to pay before they get cut off that’s gummed up the works. There’s a simple solution. Telkomsel could employ some people who can keep accounts.

Carp a Diem Among the thickets of inspirational sites that now litter the internet is one that calls itself Brainy Quotes. It recently featured this thought from Christopher Fry – he died in 2005 – whose thoughts are considered worthy since he was one of the most celebrated playwrights of the 20th century: “I want to look at life – at the commonplaces of existence – as if we had just turned a corner and run into it for the first time.” Goldfish have it made then. They habitually do that.

This column is non-advertorial and written by an expat who has lived in Indonesia for nearly 20 years. The island has changed during this time, as has the whole world, but there are some places, things, people or events that remain as good as anyone can remember, for various reasons, or, recently opened places, arrived people or new organisations that are worth a mention. Listed below are those for this edition, in no particular order, as the island is a vibrant place that moves progressively with many wonderful things on offer. Bali has come a long way and My Favourite Things explores what remains interesting for us all to experience.

Romance is in the air with Valentine’s Day on the 14th, which happens to be on a Tuesday this leap year. Bali is an amazing place to ‘get romantic’, not just because you need to follow the tradition on this globally marked day of ‘lurve’ but because the whole island has long been famed for its aura of seductive mystery and heady sensuality. Anytime is a good time to be romantic and here are a few suggestions of what one can get up to, if so inclined.

The Private Spa Wellness Center offers unique personal therapies and groundbreaking spa treatments all in one center. The showcase for The Private Spa Corporation, it is the brainchild of three people who are experts in their respective fields: Ian Lyons, world-renowned quantum physicist; Fabrice Garrigues, spa engineer and architect; and Erika Dewi, international spa staff trainer and highly experienced spa therapist, who also manufactures and exports a wide range of detoxifying and exfoliating creams, lotions and oils. Together, they have created an environment friendly center that offers state-of-the-art equipment fused with ancient traditional therapies performed by professional therapists. The outside of the spa looks small and unassuming but upon entering, clients get the feeling of space and calm through smart use of space, tasteful décor and a combination of soft colors. This is a great way to spend the day together for some relaxing romance.

APHRODISIAC PICNIC IN BED @HOTEL TUGU CANGGU Hotel Tugu is set with the dramatic waves of the Indian Ocean as a backdrop on spectacular Canggu Beach. It is therefore apt that the ‘Aphrodisiac Picnic in Bed’ is served on this very patch of Tugu’s almost private beach, with the setting sun dipping to bow to you, and a glorious enigmatic moon saluting you in the true manner of all the poetry ever inspired by nature. Here the Indian Ocean whispers on its gentle breezes of all the tales of the ancient kingdoms and eternal love sonnets. This dinner is candlelit, with oil lanterns and candles scattered all around your authentic carved 18th century antique bed that has voiles of light coloured fabrics hanging from its canopy and four posters, as if dreamily drifting on the breeze. The delightful staff will tuck you and your love in, and away you will go on a gourmets’ feast. This threecourse sensation begins with a fresh crab cocktail served on a plate of real crushed red rose petals, to enflame passion. Next is a ‘Menage a Quatre’ (not ménage a trois he he) of Seafood, served beautifully from a miniature ‘sate’ grill tableside by your personal butler. You will then be presented with blindfolds, to accompany your to-die-for desserts, a sensual lingering yet trusting moment to the thrill of your palate. What a perfectly memorable dining experience, and like none other on the whole island. The Aphrodisiac Picnic in Bed is a snip at Rp, 660,000 ++ per person with reservations an absolute must at least 24-hours beforehand. Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong, Canggu. Ph: 0361 4731 701 E: W:

CHARTER A PRIVATE CRUISE FOR THE DAY This Valentine’s spoil your loved one with a surprise day cruise in the warm waters of Bali and Lombok, offering the beauty of the islands to get romantic and intimate. Anchor off one of the many magnificent surrounding beaches to enjoy a private meal and go fishing or snorkeling in a tropical bay of your choice. To begin your romantic cruise a chilled glass of Bucks Fizz (orange juice and sparkling wine) is served along with fresh Tapas. This is then followed by a meal in the main salon or al fresco at the sundeck table, or if you prefer, on a beach – fabulously private and an originally unforgettable way to spend Valentine’s. To the east of Bali is the island of Nusa Lembongan with breath taking bays and secluded tropical beaches with surf breaking over live coral reef. This is an island to put at the top of your Sea Dancer experience list! Nusa Penida, is the largest of the the immediate group of islands to the east of Bali, with two popular stop off points, both with magnificent reefs, perfect for snorkeling and bathing amongst the gentle reef fish. The friendly and experienced Sea Dancer crew is on hand to ensure that you and your guests receive the best service possible during your cruise. There is also a host to guide you and provide local information, if you desire. Sea Dancer

Reading Aloud By Uma Anyar

Recently, a younger single friend asked me what factor contributed to my forty- five-year marriage. What might she do to make a happy marriage? Without hesitation I stated, “Read aloud to each other.” I suspect she had expected something more profound as her jaw dropped and she stared at me dumbfounded. Now I don’t guarantee that reading aloud will save marriages that are on the rocks or make up for money problems but it will enhance intimacy and camaraderie, not to mention improve your vocabulary. It is a good way to be together without having to think up things to talk about or worse, talk about things that bore your partner. It is a form of play and sharing. So, where’s a good place to start? Short stories are good to read out loud. And even the longer essays or novels written by authors with a strong, individualistic, personal narrative voices are your best bet for a good listening experience. J.D. Salinger ‘s The Catcher in the Rye was the first book my husband and I shared and the intimate pleasure of bringing Holden Caulfield into our lives for an hour’s reading was something we each looked forward to in those early innocent years before a child and our careers took over. What a delight to find a character that thought and felt the way we did. Holden voiced his irreverence in a fresh, off-hand slang. He became a sort of instant best friend to his sympathetic audience, some one that also saw through the oppressive conformity of Cold War American society. Salinger’s hero’s ‘attitude’ shows in his opening paragraph. “If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them. They‘re quite touchy about anything like that, especially my father. They are nice and all— I’m not saying that—but they’re also touchy as hell. Besides, I’m not going to tell my whole goddamn autobiography or anything. I’ll just tell you about this madman stuff that happened to me around last Christmas just before I got pretty run-down and had to come here and take it easy.” As I read this in 2012, I am struck by how quaint and rather innocent sounding Holden now seems. There is no heavyduty profanity, no political axe to grind. Mostly, Holden doesn’t like the phonies, snobs or bullies at his prep school. His favorite person in the whole world is his kid sister, Phoebe. The word ‘lousy‘ seems dated and ‘madman stuff’ brings to mind a currently popular television series about advertising men set in the 1960’s, the same time period of the novel. There is a hint that something emotionally or mentally bad has occurred when Holden tells us he has had to “come here and take it easy”. “Oh my,” thinks the reader and turns the page to see what happens next to the young chip on his shoulder narrator.

It was the narrator’s personal confessional voice that kept us glued to our chair and turning the pages. Holden Caulfield wasn’t just a fictional character; he became an icon for rebellion. He felt very real. The opposite feeling occurred when I listened to my husband read When You are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. This collection of personal essays about the author’s experiences is laugh- out-loud funny and perfect for a shared reading. But I wonder if things happened exactly as he described. This is from “It’s Catching”.

“My friend Patsy was telling me a story. “So I’m at the movie theater” she said, “and I’ve got my coat all neatly laid out against the back of my seat, when this guy comes along-“ And here I stopped her, because I’ve always wondered about this coat business. When I’m in a theater, I either fold mine in my lap or throw it over the armrest, but Patsy always spreads hers out. Acting as if the seat back was cold, and she couldn’t possibly enjoy herself while it was suffering. C/U/G-5 Oct. 11

“Why do you do that?” I asked. And she looked at me saying, “Germs silly. Think of all the people who have rested their heads there. Doesn’t it just give you the creeps?” I admitted that it had never occurred to me. “Well you would never lie on a hotel bedspread. Would you?” She asked, and again: Why not? I might not put it in my mouth, but to lie back and make a few phone calls — I do it all the time. “But you wash the phone first, right?” “ Umm, no.”

“Well, that is just …dangerous,” she said.” Is there a rampant fear of germs taking over the western world or is this based on an episode of Seinfeld circa 1990. The germ thing is catching on. Nearly everyone carries sanitized towelettes now. David Sedaris, like Holden Caulfield, is telling us, the readers, about his ordinary middle-class life. The specific issues are rather unimportant except that some actually do come up in real conversations. I suspect we all have a Patsy in our circle of friends. The world has changed but people remain weird — only in socially different ways than in Holden’s time. Last week one of my dinner guests asked me if my husband and I had been de– wormed. This question was posed as I was lifting a forkful of lemon meringue pie to my mouth. I lowered my fork cautiously and replied… “Umm… no.” “My entire family is taking de-worming herbs. You should too.”

A David Sedaris moment taking place in my own life. For me David Sedaris is a postmodern actualized Holden Caulfield. He’s political too; he has done more for gay rights by writing about his relationship with his long-term partner, Hugh, and their life together as well as his large Greek family, than hundreds of activists ever could. He is outrageous, even caustic, but always a forthright funny observer of contemporary life. Humorous writers are rather rare. Sedaris has been compared to Mark Twain, E.B. White and James Thurber, but I prefer to believe that he is the fictional Holden Caulfield all grown up, gay and living in Normandy, and still nice to his sister, Amy. Several reviewers have called him a “Hey, Martha! Writer” because after you read a few pages you feel like calling someone and saying, “Hey listen to this guy,” and launch into reading out loud.

by Dr. Rob Meeting Point: From Jogja with Love Group Exhibition of Paintings At Taksu Gallery, W Retreat & Spa, Jl. Petitenget, Seminyak. Tel: 738106 At the Taksu gallery, the group exhibition ‘Meeting Point: From Jogja with Love’ showcases the work of seven Indonesian painters: Dedy Sufriadi, Deskhairi, Dwi Setya Acong, Hanh, Hono Sun, Joko ‘Gundul’ Sulistiono, and Wahyu Gunawan. The show gathers together these graduates from the Indonesian Institute of the Arts in Yogyakarta, and all of them are practicing as professional painters. Coming from different areas of Indonesia, these seven artists present unique perspectives, and explore diverse visual languages in their search for meaning and truth.

Natural Born

Dedy Sufriadi was born in 1976, in Palembang. For Dedy, abstraction is like a big house with a thousand doors which we can enter and exit from anywhere. In his piece ‘Natural Born’, Dedy sees abstraction as an accumulation of many artistic and aesthetic problems with just one result: “Purity and intelligence of intuition”.

Deskhairi was born in 1972, in Batu Sangkar, Sumatera Barat. In paintings such as ‘Menjaring Kesenangan’, Deskhairi shows that Nature still continues to inspire him in his painting processes. Quiet and poetic, his canvases are realizations of his imaginary discourses with nature, but are simplified and processed aesthetically.

Menjaring Kesenangan

Dwi Setya Acong was born in 1977, in Malang. Mankind and Nature are the main inspirations behind his work. In his canvas ‘Keseimbangan’, Dwi places a lone character in the midst of ruins. Not only is Dwi pointing out the ecological issues of Nature’s exploitation, he is also Keseimbangan challenging the viewer to consider the potential for destruction that comes as a result of Mankind’s desire for wealth and progress. Hanh was born in 1974, in Pontianak. He sees his art making process as a humble activity, no higher than any other daily routine like waking up in the morning and brushing his teeth. With his work ‘Party Till Drop’, Hanh strives to create a light-hearted piece which prompts a viewer’s contemplation without being too heavy.

Party Till Drop

Hono Sun was born in 1977, in Yogyakarta. As the painting ‘Guardian’ shows, geometrical shapes and peculiar perspectives dominate his canvases. Hono Sun also adds strange shapes derived from nature to his very colorful oils on canvas. Guardian

Joko ‘Gundul’ Sulistiono was born in 1970, in Grobogan. The exploration of mediums, techniques, and various themes has been the main interest for Joko in his works. The canvas ‘A Lot of Stories’ demonstrates that Joko A Lot of Storeis still continues to push boundaries, and endlessly endeavors to find new possibilities in his paintings.

The Builder

Wahyu Gunawan was born in 1975, in Yogyakarta. Daily social exchanges are the ideas that fuel Wahyu’s art making processes. These ideas are then transformed into images, such as ‘The Builder’, and are packaged with satirical observations.

Noella also states that she likes to make drawings where she can visualize the expressions of the dance, and not necessarily the character or pose of the dancers. Noella draws dancers as dancing lines, and does not draw Untitled 3 the costumes. The latter, she says, attracts too much attention away from the emotions and expressions of the dance itself. As the drawing examples ‘Untitled 1, 2 & 3’ show, Noella Roos captures that special moment of sublime connection between the dancer, the artist, and the music. Her drawings are free and open. They are grey, and not too black. Drawing for Noella is seen as a path to a better understanding of the Dance in Bali.

Born in Amsterdam in 1969, Noella Roos is a Dutch painter and drawer. Raised in a family of artists, her talent was nourished and stimulated from early childhood. In this artistic environment Noella was given every chance to fully develop her visual qualities. As a result her paintings and drawings betray a classical and technical basis that is seldom seen in the current generation of Dutch artists. At the Dutch art academies personal development is strongly placed before mastery of technique. Noella chose her own path, opposed to an ongoing ‘trend’. Her drawings are inspired by Michelangelo, Käthe Kollwitz, Rembrandt, and Willem Dooijenwaard. Noella lets Balinese dancers perform to music in her studio in Bali, and then draws these dancers while they are in motion with compressed chalk on white paper. She prefers chalk because it is an ‘honest’ medium. The resulting drawings are either good or bad, for you cannot change or erase Untitled 1 any parts. When she works Noella is inspired by the movements of the body. “Everyone has their own language when they dance”, Noella states, “influenced and shaped by cultural backgrounds, but, primarily it is an expression of the emotional involvement with the music”. Her fascination for moving figures gradually led to the development of a technique in which she can capture the movement as quickly as the dancer can dance. Her interest is focused on muscle movement, and on light reflecting on the moving body. Untitled 2 She continues drawing a dancing model until she can fully fathom all the movements of the model. This is why Noella prefers to work with only one dancer for a long period. In the end she and the model are as one. For her exhibition ‘Grey Lines’, at Gaya Art Space, drawings of modern European dancers, and drawings of a traditional Balinese dancer, Dayu Indah from Peliatan, are now on show.

Nutrition and Health Comes Straight from the Garden to the Table!

Today’s conventionally grown produce is generally not as healthy or nutritious as it was 50 years ago. A strange thing has been happening to our produce. It’s losing its nutrients, and the problem is getting worse. The decline in the nutritional content of fruits and vegetables was reported more than 10 years ago by an English researcher who investigated the falling mineral concentrations of 20 crops grown in the UK from the 1930s to the 1980s.

But even if buying organic is not in your budget, there are some simple ways to put the nutrients back into your produce. A richly colored skin indicates a higher content of phytochemicals loaded with antioxidants. Look for bright or deeply coloured fruits and vegetables. A recent study showed that darker orange carrots contain more beta-carotene. The more colors in the vegetables you eat the more different types of nutrients, minerals and other vitamins that you get.

It is also happening in the US. A research team that analyzed 43 fruits and vegetables from 1950 to 1999 reported reductions in vitamins, minerals, and protein. They found that broccoli, for example, had 130 mg of calcium in 1950. Today, that number is only 48 mg. A book named The Healing Power of Minerals, Special Nutrients and Trace Elements by Paul Bergner includes USDA figures that show a decline in the mineral and vitamin content of several fruits and vegetables from 1963 to 1992. Here is a summary of some mineral decreases measured over the 30 year period: Calcium -30%, Iron -32%, Magnesium-21%, Phosphorus -11%, Potassium -6%. *Fruits and vegetables used in the sample were: oranges, apples, bananas, carrots, corn, tomatoes, broccoli, potatoes, celery, romaine lettuce, iceberg lettuce, collard greens, and chard. The conclusion is that naturally grown vegetables have more minerals and nutrients as compared to mass produced chemically grown ones.

Bigger isn’t better, so forget the huge tomatoes or oversized apples. If the produce is smaller, then its level of nutrients will be more concentrated. The nutrients in most fruits and vegetables start to diminish as soon they’re harvested, so for optimal nutrition, eat all within 1 week of purchasing. Try to buy produce locally from the market and you can stack the advantages of nutrition in our favor. Fruit and vegetables at the markets contain more local produce, where it is most likely to be in season, and close from farm to market. Unlike supermarket produce, which is picked prematurely, travels hundreds or even thousands of kilometers across borders before landing on store shelves. Who knows what it’s been sprayed with to preserve it free from pests in transit? A long journey from farm to table gives the nutrients lots of time to degrade. Sometimes produce is even stored for months, so what is left of the nutrition content after all this time?

It is somewhat common sense that naturally grown vegetables have more nutrients, vitamins and minerals than those grown under the conditions of conveyer belt mass production. Mass produced agriculture on any scale depends on a few chemicals; NPK, nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. While these elements are important, they aren’t the only ones that a plant needs to grow and produce healthy fruits and vegetables. Over time synthetic fertilizers decrease a plants ability to synthesize nutrients or absorb them from the soil. On the other hand organic farming does not use synthetic fertilizers, and plants that grown naturally produce more “phytochemicals” (a term which refers to a wide variety of compounds produced by plants) within their fruits. A 10-year study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry showed that organic tomatoes can have up to 30 percent more phytochemicals than those grown commercially. Scientists have identified thousands of phytochemicals, although only a small fraction have been studied closely, the most commonly researched include beta carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), folic acid, and vitamin E. Phytochemicals and their anti-oxidant properties are promoted for the prevention and treatment of many health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. There is evidence that phytochemicals may help prevent the formation of carcinogens, and experts know that people can reduce their risk of cancer significantly by eating more fruits, vegetables, and other foods from plants that contain high levels of phytochemicals. Beta carotene found in carrots, pumpkin and sweet potatoes, for example, has also been shown to help protect against lung cancer, but may be harmful when taken in a pill form. Research suggests that calcium supplements may raise the risk of heart attacks in while adding little to benefit bone health. There are countless studies and examples where a nutrient from a vitamin pill simply won’t have the same positive effect as the nutrient when consumed from fresh living fruit or vegetables. Long term synthetic fertilizers are no good for plants likewise synthetic pills are no good for humans. There is no substitute for real natural vitamins and minerals.

From my own observations, home grown produce lasts much longer but this should be obvious since supermarket produce can be picked months before it is hits the shelves. For example supermarket tomatoes are frequently picked green before they have the chance to fully ripen, a technique that keeps them from rotting in transit. Later, they are artificially ripened with ethylene, (a gas that plants produce naturally). If you eat a tomato from the supermarket, you can almost guarantee it was gassed, same goes for bananas. At the farmers market you are offered local freshly harvested, in-season food that has had a chance to ripen naturally, and as a consequence you will get a higher concentration of phytochemicals. My advice is, if you can’t grow at home buy from the local market or pasar, the supermarket should be your last resort!

It looks like food prices will continue to increase throughout 2012, even in the midst of an economic crisis that has reduced the purchasing power of many. This makes it more important than ever to get the best nutritional value per dollar spent. Growing a garden can actually pay off in a true sense! Even in a small garden the return from $50 in seeds could well be in excess of $1000 worth of fresh produce, not to mention the extra nutrition you’ll get! The supermarket will never match the home garden for freshness. It is not very difficult to grow a garden that produces more than you and your family can eat, or at least use to compliment market bought produce. Which do you think has better nutrition and taste, and which would you want to eat or serve to your family? It’s obvious, nutrition and health comes straight from the garden, to the table!

The Sun continues in Aquarius for this fortnight and Saturn turns retrograde. Venus the Lady of Love enters the sign of Aries and joins with Uranus right as the fortnight begins. Mercury moves into Pisces on the 14th and will return there after its April retrograde. For now, it relays the messages of Neptune that is also fresh in the sign of Pisces along with the Sun on the 19th. Pisces speaks of intuition, empathy, understanding and a deep connection with Divinity. All Hearts soften as the Planets align themselves with this watery and otherworldly energy. Things of a spiritual nature take prominence and it could well usher in a time of deep concern for the waters of the Planet. The New Moon is also at low degrees Pisces at the end of the fortnight and teams up with Neptune. This next month will show a lot of interesting twists and turns on the global stage as people tune in deeply to feeling the emotional states of one another. Aquarius is the month when we align ourselves with our shared humanity and Pisces when we feel our Oneness and Divine origin. Mars continues in its retrograde phase in Virgo. Slowly we weigh up each step and each decision, taking us slowly on our journey of discovering our Soul’s purpose and allowing the wounds of our individual and planetary pain to dissolve through forgiveness and the path of Love. You will be witness to many amazing scenarios this fortnight that open the portal of your heart ever wider. NEW MOON 2 PISCES 42 February 22, 2012 06:36 a.m.

ARIES: Mars slowly retracing its steps in Virgo and Venus having just entered your sign joins with Uranus at the beginning of the fortnight to put in place a new method of communication and action plan within your relationships. You may be busy restructuring and at the same time experimenting with new ways of doing things. Some have experienced radical meetings with new partners and others departures from long standing relationships and in some cases both have occurred simultaneously. Remember we are on the road that leads all of us into new ways of living on planet earth. What requires modification in your life? TAURUS: This can be a disrupting time for you when the Sun travels in the sign of Aquarius, as it is one of the less comfortable placements for you steady and solid type of individuals. The unpredictable is uncomfortable and challenging to your stable lifestyle. Jupiter continues in your sign and moves into alignment with Pluto towards the end of this month to create a harmonious trine aspect. Transformation will be activated effortlessly and transition made easy for you by the grace of the Jupiter Taurus combination. Pluto is insisting on some modification to the structures of your life and this can be made easy by your insistent Taurus nature. GEMINI: The movement of Mercury from Aquarius to Pisces is definitely marked by the more subtle tones of the later. The airy nature of the visionary is replaced by the certainty of the trusting heart. Each mind turns to imagery through imagination and inspiration. Your intuition is heightened and your telepathic abilities are shining now. Allow this Divine flow of inner guidance to light the way for you over these coming weeks as the Mars in Virgo brings a little tension to your life with it’s insistence on going over details and facts and figures. There is no easy solution to problems unless you are prepared to go with the flow and find space in your heart to allow. CANCER: Coming out of the Leo Full moon and heading into the next cycle in Pisces brings you into a fortnight of integration and preparation for an internal journey. A time to access your Divine Heart and find what is the most suitable course of action for you and those you love and care for. Being one of the cardinal signs, at some point throughout these next few years between 2012 and 2015 you will be activated by the square of Uranus/Pluto. (This is determined within the birth chart). Old models must go and the willingness to stay open to radical change imperative. Coping with this is determined by your ability to surrender in the face of adversity to inner knowing. LEO: The Sun is in your polar opposite sign for most of this fortnight and then continues on into Pisces. As much as you would like the attention on you it has swung in favor of the collective. It seems that everyone gets their twenty minutes in the limelight and each has his agenda to share. This manages to provoke the humanitarian side of your nature and you are feeling compelled to do a little service work or saving the World in your own small or large way. Then as the Sun rolls on into Pisces towards the end of the fortnight, you are dropped into a field of Alice in Wonderland scenarios where you find yourself amused by your own antics. VIRGO: It could be that you are feeling a little pressurized by Mars moving backwards in your sign with strong urges to get on with things and not quite knowing how to go about it all. One step at a time is probably the best way to deal with any considerations and goal setting and action plans. As the Sun rolls around to sit in opposition to your own over the next month, you will pulled into that part of yourself that knows how to rely heavily on intuition, inner strength and guidance. Although it can at times take some allowance on your part, once you are there you will find that things flow more effortlessly as though some kind of Divine Grace is working on your behalf.

LIBRA: Saturn now moves retrograde in your sign. These months through to June are to be used for integration and sorting through the finer details of relationship. It may be within your beloved partnership or with your children, friends or extended family. For others it is in the work environments that change and modification is dealt with. It seems this is the time to find out what works best for all concerned and a certain amount of compromise is required for this to become a reality. The consequences of inappropriate behavior are rapidly felt. How you choose to deal with this will depend on how long you can stand disharmony and chaos. My guess is, not long.

C/Ho/I-28 Dec11

SCORPIO: Jupiter and Pluto are pulling closely into alignment through the beginning of March. This harmonious aspect will bring good fortune and ease to all of your dealings and in particular those around your business dealings. This is a good time for you to be moving material possessions in and out of your life. Acquisitions come easily as you release the old. It is like doorways opening for you that you didn’t know existed. It’s ok to take guided chances at this time and receive some good fortune for a change. A little appreciation will go a long way now, so remember to express your gratitude for even the smallest of blessings. This allows life to give more. SAGITTARIUS: The North Node as it moves through the degrees of your sign brings you clarity on the important issues. Old habits of mind tend to be transmuted into new visions of expansion in your life. Many have embarked on a new journey within the framework of their lives. This is marked by the entrance of new acquaintances and the departure of old ones. Allow the cycles of your life to reveal in Divine time, that which is appropriate for you. It may feel like time is standing still or moving ever so slowly and then it speeds up again and you are thrown into the next round of activity. Again it is the allowance that smoothes the way, rather than struggle or effort.

C/Ho/I-05 Oct. 11

CAPRICORN: As Saturn moves retrograde over the next months you could find yourself in situations that feel very familiar. When you are offered the same situation over again, ask yourself what is the best course of action and what can I do differently, from a higher perspective or am I able to negotiate this in a new way? Life does seem like a training ground from time to time, where I get to do things over and over again, until I get them right and move on. There can be a certain sense of frustration attached to this if you take it all too seriously. Learn to flow a little more as the Sun moves into Pisces. This could be the time for a little retreat from the everyday. AQUARIUS: Is it time for a spontaneous new love affair? Are you tired yet of the same old same old, or are you adding enough spice to the normal mix of routine? A little restlessness creeps in from time to time and this is perfectly ok in the grand scheme of things as it inspires you to be creative and inventive. So get your thinking caps on and allow your inspiration to guide you to the next steps on this exciting and intriguing life journey of wonder and awe. The days of enormous change are on their way so these little changes you make now, will help you adjust more readily in the coming months and over the next few years. Bare your boldness.

C/Ho/G-24 August 11


PISCES: How are you settling into this new routine? These days of your ruling Planet residing in your own sign. These are powerful times of wonder, adventure and a deep sense of belonging. A time to embrace your newly found humanity and share in the wonder of existence with your fellow travelers. Life can be a wondrous journey of unfolding if you allow it. All is given if you can but see the beauty in every situation of its Divine Perfection. Trusting in this beauty that resides in every heart beyond the illusion is now easier than ever before. If it feels like some kind of homecoming then it probably is and allow yourself to rejoice.

08 February - 22 February, 2012

“How To Take The Skin Off A Rice Pudding” Been a bit of flatulence around recently. I was woken up the other night by the rude sound of passing wind, I turned over but it made no difference. I think it must have been the sound of someone’s roof leaping from one house to another that caused a minor disturbance to my peace of my mind so eventually I got up and looked out of the window. What a sight, banana trees were shredding and palm trees bending over at 45 degree angles. There was more wind than Silvio Berlusconi in a Eurozone meeting and I could have sworn I saw a goldfish or two. It was reminiscent of a mini cyclone I once got caught in many years ago in Brisbane. Brisbane doesn’t usually get cyclones but this was a freak of nature that caused a lot of damage and made a lot of people wish they had worn their brown trousers that day. I was caught in my car. I saw it coming up a side street, a solid wall of white spray. I drove to get away but it was clear that I wasn’t going to make it so I found a place I thought would be a safe area away from trees and sat it out. There comes a point doesn’t there when the exhilaration at the shear power of nature starts to turn into a nagging doubt, the start of a slippery slope to mild consternation and even a slight softening of the stiffness of the upper lip. I was right in the path of the storm and got the double whammy, incredibly strong winds blew in one direction taking branches off trees and making wheelie bins airborne. I watched transfixed as all manner of things blew past, cane chairs, pieces of plastic, the odd granny or two. Then, suddenly, it stopped. There was a dead calm and I could see blue sky above but then, just as suddenly as it had stopped, strong winds struck again this time blowing in completely the opposite direction. The meteorological trauma moved off towards the centre of the city leaving devastation in its wake. The wind that hit my house the other night was getting on for a similar strength. It is very unusual to get winds that strong in Bali but we should remember that we are, in fact, in a cyclone area. There are seven recognised worldwide tropical storm “basins” where storms occur on a regular basis, Bali is in the Southeast Indian/Australian basin. Our recent wind was caused by cyclone Iggy (who on earth dreamt up that name?), a category 1 tropical cyclone with winds up to 60 kilometres an hour which moved across the Indian Ocean between Indonesia and Australia and killed 7 people mostly from falling trees. Cyclones, Typhoons and Hurricanes are effectively the same thing. They are, like political parties, formed by hot air. They develop when sea water temperatures rise (usually in spring and summer) to above 26.5 Degrees celsius. Hot air rises taking evaporated sea water with it and as it rises higher in the atmosphere it cools, the water condenses out forming rain and the action of condensation releases heat which further fuels the cyclone. The rising column of air causes a reduction in air pressure in the centre which draws air into the bottom of the cyclone further increasing the rate of evaporation of the sea water, the storm progressively increases in intensity. The turning of the earth starts the rising air rotating, in the northern hemisphere tropical storms are called Typhoons or Hurricanes and turn in an anticlockwise direction while in the southern hemisphere they are called Cyclones and turn clockwise. This turning motion (just like your bathwater going down the plughole) is known as the Coriolis effect after a man called Eric Frottington (no just kidding, he was really a Frenchman called Gaspard Gustave Coriolis) who was a very clean but rather wrinkled man and wrote a mathematical paper in 1835 which made him very happy and a bit famous. “You’re breakfast’s ready.” “Sorry dear just having another bath.” “What another one? That makes 16 this morning. You’re going all wrinkly” Tropical storms need to form more than 5 degrees of latitude away from the equator (Bali is 8 degrees south) for the Coriolis effect to start the winds circulating. Most tropical storms form between 10 and 30 degrees away from the equator with 87% forming no more than 20 degrees away from the equator. Tropical storms move in a westerly direction and, in the absence of strong winds, tend to move towards the poles (South in the southern hemisphere). They drift around for a while (up to 30 days) until they hit land and then the absence of warm sea water makes them collapse. They can get quite big (even larger than a Jakarta traffic jam). The most intense storm on record was Typhoon Tip which hit the North Western Pacific Ocean in 1979 with sustained wind speeds of up to 310 km/h (190 mph). Tip was also the largest on record covering an area 2,170km (1,350 miles) in diameter. In the Southern hemisphere the tropical cyclone season runs from November 1 until the end of April, with peaks in mid-February to early March. Historically storm surge (rise in sea level) has caused 90% of fatalities from tropical storms. There are different scales used in different parts of the world to categorise tropical storms. In Indonesia we use the Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Intensity Scale although if a tropical storm forms north of 10 degrees south and between 90 degrees and 125 degrees east then it comes under the jurisdiction of the Jakarta, Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre (TCWC) and is called a Tropical Depression. Once it hits 34 knots it is categorised a tropical cyclone and is given a name (I mean a real name and not something like “that fertling wind”). The stronger the wind the more damage it can cause (funny that) a fact that was not lost on Ethel Beaufort who, in 1805, was just finishing her entry for the annual Upper Snodsbury church fete rice pudding competition when a strong wind blew up her back passage, in through the kitchen door and removed the skin. Now a

rice pudding without a skin is no laughing matter. Little boys the length and breadth of the British Isles have, for generations, fought with their siblings for the skin of the rice pudding. Gastronomic experts across the globe who have mastered the subtlety of English cuisine fully understand the importance of the rice pudding skin and the culinary skills required to make it. C/BM/G-29 June 11

Ethel was so disturbed by this event that she carried out a lifelong study on the wind strength required to remove the skin from a rice pudding and developed the Beaufort scale to quantify the effects of different wind speeds. It is a little known fact that the idea was borrowed by her husband, a sailor by the name of Rear Admiral Francis (Pudding Frank to his friends) Beaufort, who used to sail the seven seas with a rice pudding strapped to his binnacle. So what can we expect from a Cyclone? Well here’s a bit of a summary: Tropical Depression (Tropical Low in Australia) Sustained windspeeds 0 to 63 km/h (0 to 34 knots) with gusts from 0 to 9 km/h (49 knots) Beaufort Scale - No effect noted on rice puddings.

C/BM/U-25 Jan. 12

Tropical Cyclone category 1 (Tropical storm in the Northern hemisphere) Sustained windspeed 64 to 88 km/h (34 to 47 knots) with gusts from 91 to 124 km/h (50 to 67 knots) Damage to be expected - Minimal Damage mostly restricted to trees, shrubbery and lightweight structures; no substantial damage to other structures; some damage to poorly constructed signs. In coastal areas some road flooding and minor damage to jetties and piers. Beaufort Scale - Ripples observed on the surface of rice puddings. Tropical Cyclone category 2 (Tropical storm in the Northern hemisphere) Sustained windspeed 89 to 117 km/h (48 to 63 knots) with gusts from 125 to 164 km/h (68 to 89 knots) Damage expected - Moderate Considerable damage to tree and shrubbery foliage, some trees blown down; extensive damage to poorly constructed signs and some damage to windows, doors and roof materials, but no major destruction to buildings. Coastal roads and low-lying escape routes inland cut off by rising water about two to four hours before landfall; considerable damage to jetties and piers, marinas flooded; small craft in protected anchorages torn from moorings. Beaufort scale - The skin of the rice pudding starts to lift around the edges. Severe Tropical Cyclone category 3 (Typhoon or Hurricane category 1 and 2 in the N hemisphere) Sustained windspeed 118 to 159 km/h (64 to 85 knots) with gusts from 165 to 224 km/h (90 to 121 knots) Damage to be expected - Extensive Foliage torn from trees; large trees blown down; poorly constructed signs blown down; some damage to roofing, windows, and doors; some structural damage to small buildings. Serious flooding in coastal areas; many small structures near the coast destroyed; larger coastal structures damaged by battering waves and floating debris. Low-lying escape routes inland cut off by rising water about three to five hours before landfall; flat terrain 1 metre or less above sea level flooded up to 14 or more kilometres inland. Evacuation of low-lying residences near to shorelines may be required. Beaufort scale - The skin is blown off the rice pudding.

C/BM/U-28Dec. 11

Severe Tropical Cyclone category 4 (Typhoon or Hurricane category 3 and 4 in the N hemisphere) Sustained windspeed 160 to 200 km/h (86 to 107 knots) with gusts from 225 to 279 km/h (122 to 151 knots) Damage to be expected - Extreme Shrubs, trees, and all signs blown down; extensive damage to roofs, windows, and doors, with complete failure of roofs on many smaller residences. Flat terrain 3 metres or less above sea level flooded as far as 10 kilometres inland; flooding and battering by waves and floating debris cause major damage to lower floors of structures near the shore; low-lying escape routes inland cut off by rising water about three to five hours before landfall; major erosion of beaches Massive evacuation of residences as far as 10 kilometres inland may be required. Beaufort Scale - The skin is blown off the rice pudding, the rice pudding follows. Severe Tropical Cyclone category 5 (Super Typhoon or Major Hurricane category 4 or 5 in the N hemisphere) Sustained windspeed of more than 200 km/h (107 knots) with gusts greater than 279 km/h (151 knots) Damage to be expected - Catastrophic Trees, shrubs, and all signs blown down; considerable damage to roofs of buildings, with very severe and extensive damage to windows and doors; complete failure on many roofs of residences and industrial buildings; extensive shattering of glass in windows and doors; complete buildings destroyed; small building overturned or blown away. Major damage to lower floors of all structures less than 5 metres above sea level within 500 metres of the shore. Low-lying escape routes inland cut off by rising water about three to five hours before landfall; major erosion of beaches. Massive evacuation of residential areas on low ground as far inland as 18 kilometres may be required. Beaufort Scale - Rice pudding, bowl, kitchen table and cook have never been found to assess the damage. Phil Wilson Opinions expressed are those of Phil Wilson.

TOKO BUKU Reviews of English language books on Indonesia

Tell Them to Get Lost by Brian Thacker Brian Thacker was sitting at a book signing with Tony Wheeler when he asked the famous publisher if anyone had ever attempted to travel with the first edition of Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on a Shoestring. Known as The Yellow Bible, this celebrated guidebook has been carried by travelers across the region for decades. Before he knew it, the travel author was planning a trip around Southeast Asia following Tony’s footsteps through Portuguese Timor, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Burma and Singapore using only a thin battered copy of the 1975 original as his only guidebook. Totaling only 148 pages, the book was but a puny shadow of the current 15th edition which is over 1000 pages and weighs in at almost a kilo. Racing through seven countries in 12 weeks, the trip would give Thacker a chance to find out what the region was like through the eyes of a backpacker traipsing around Asia in the early 1970s. In Thacker’s chronicle of his travels through Indonesia and former Indonesian territory, which comprises almost half of his book, he discovers for himself what has changed and what is still around since Tony and Maureen Wheeler rode their clapped out 250 cc Yamaha trail bike into history. In early 1974, the Wheelers set off from Melbourne and up the coast to Darwin. From there they flew to Baucau, the main port and international airport in the Portuguese colony, then spent a year island hopping and traveling overland collecting information on what was to later to become known as the Hippie Trail. By the time they published their first guidebook, the first generation of baby boomers were beginning to head over to Asia in droves on a well-traveled route that was dotted with cheap guesthouses, restaurant hangouts and beach gathering spots. Following the same route that the Wheelers took, over the three months Thacker singlemindedly and assiduously tracked down guesthouses, restaurants and attractions that were listed in that first on-a-shoestring guide. Many of the former hotels were now just concrete slabs, patches of grass, broken walls or had been reborn as another hotel or turned into a light fixture shop or grocery store. Happy Restaurant had become a McDonald’s, Helen Restaurant had become a Dunkin’ Donuts. In 1974, the capital of Portuguese Timor, had the only paved road and one of only two petrol stations in the entire colony. Only a few short months after the launch of the original guidebook, the territory was invaded and barbarously occupied by Indonesia, enduring decades of hardline rule that left over 180,000 civilians dead and a long traumatic struggle to gain its independence in 1999 when Indonesian militias vindictively wreaked even more death and destruction. Back in the day the only way to get to Bali was on one Merpati flight per week from Darwin. Now there are 20 flights a day to Bali from every major city in Australia. Thacker took a taxi out of the airport on a road filled with bumper to

bumper traffic. The first edition’s description of Denpasar as “a fine alternative to Kuta with some excellent hotels” had evolved into the 15th edition’s characterization of the city as “a congested noisy hellhole where it’s hard to imagine anybody would stay of their own free will.” Even so, he was thrilled to discover that the old Adi Yasa Hotel was still there.

C/BM/I-05 Oct 11

Bali’s trashy overpriced art shops were still there also, but nasi goreng, scooter rental, bus fares, overnights in homestays all cost the same as they did in 1974 when only 50,000 tourists visited Bali. Now there were more than two million a year. Thacker records the reminisces of Jenik of long-standing Poppies, Oka Wati renown in the 1970s for her bean soup warung, and Tjenderi who had opened her guesthouse in Ubud in 1970. Kuta was the only foreign place the author has ever seen where the Australian pop culture was more potent than American culture. This is a book full of verbal Before And After sketches. Along his journey the writer charts the startling changes in tourism, technology and economic progress that have taken place. We are able to follow one continuous thread progressing from the 1970s right up to the present day. We jubilate when he meets someone who remembers the old days or when he locates of an old hotel. Mishaps and motorcycle accidents dog his travels. He is beset by gangs of ravenous rats, swims with a goat-eating crocodile, gets hopelessly lost or stuck in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire. But he’s on a mission and is not too proud to try anything, whether they be crispy grasshoppers, karaoke bars and hallucinogenic pizzas. Not satisfied with finding a hotel that still exists, he also feels obliged to sleep in it too. In unfailing pursuit of the engrossing anecdote, he laughs at himself almost to the point of self-denigration, enduring horrible cities, lumpy beds, tiny dark rooms, stained sheets, dripping faucets, freezing urine reeking showers. Thacker dutifully relates a worsening or improvement, takes note of any contradictions or ironies that enable him to contrast the old days with contemporary times. He follows the Wheeler’s trail to the bitter end, staying in the same room in Singapore where the legendary first edition was pasted up. Like everywhere else visited in this farcical and entertaining adventure, time had wrought heavy changes over the past 35 years. The Palace Hotel had become the Madras Eminence Hotel, the price had gone up from $4 to $55 and the old room had been divided into two smaller rooms. True to form, to make yet another connection between the past and present and for the sake of the yarn, he stayed there too. Tell Them to Get Lost: Travels with Lonely Planet Guidebook that Started it All by Brian Thacker, William Heinemann 2011, ISBN 978-174-275-1955, paperback, 354 pages. Available for $13.75 by ordering online through with free delivery worldwide.

How do I know if that e-mail file attachment is dangerous or not?

This is one of those questions that has an answer that’s a moving target, mainly because the tactics used by those with malicious intent constantly change. In general, you should consider all file attachments to be dangerous, but the reality is that on occasion, you may have someone send you a legitimate file via e-mail. The my advice of ‘never open a file attachment from someone that you don’t know’ is completely useless these days. The bad guys heard this advice being harped over and over again so they came up with a way to make it look like a file was being sent by someone you know. These days, just about anyone that is fooled into opening a malicious file attachment becomes a virtual ‘Typhoid Mary’ because their infected computer will start silently sending out the infected e-mails to everyone in their address book. The twist, however, is that these messages are sent with a ‘spoofed’ sender in the From: field that is randomly chosen from the infected computer’s address book. The evil logic in the scheme is that by randomly choosing someone in your address book, it’s likely that others in the same address book will be acquainted and the recipient will assume that the file attachment is legitimate since it appears to be from someone they know. To make things worse, if the recipient discovers that the message is tainted, they warn the purported sender that their computer is infected, when in fact it isn’t. This spoofing technique makes it very difficult to figure out who actually sent the message and more importantly much more difficult to alert the infected party that they have been compromised. There are some very big red flags that everyone should always be on the alert for when it comes to these types of messages. The first is improper grammar or lots of misspelled words. Many of the hackers that operate in this world are in foreign countries and do their best to replicate the English dialect, but generally speaking (if you are watching for it) you can easily sniff out suspicious messages just by examining the Subject or message body text.

As I said earlier, you should assume that all file attachments are dangerous, but there are some file types that absolutely should never be opened when sent via e-mail (unless you have prior knowledge that the exact file name and type is being sent by a specific user). If you ever see a file with the .EXE, .ZIP, .COM, .VBS. .JSE or .BAT extensions, you should never open them, regardless of who they supposedly came from. While these are the most commonly used by scammers, there are plenty more file types that can allow malicious code to run in the background if you fall asleep and open them (Outlook blocks 89 different file types by default- ). Equally as important, for those that are in the habit of sending file attachments, changing how you exchange legitimate information with your trusted circle will help reduce the confusion. For instance, instead of sending pictures via e-mail, post them on a public or private photo sharing site like or and send a simple message with an invitation to view the images online. If you exchange a lot of documents, consider using Google Docs (free) as an online collaboration site which also eliminates the need to remember who has which version of a document or setup an account at or as a private online file sharing system amongst your trusted circle. I’ve been using Drop Box and like it’s features AND it’s free for limited storage amounts. If everyone stopped using e-mail to send legitimate files, then we could all ignore anything that came via an e-mail message forever (so please send this column to those in your life that send lots of files via e-mail!)

Foundation Sjaki-Tari-Us ‘Not less, but differently gifted’ Sjaki-Tari-Us is a foundation with the aim to support children with a mental disability in Bali, under the motto; not less, but differently gifted. They are unique in their kind, because there aren’t much facilities for children with a mental disability, especially for children under the age of seven. From this age on there is special education in Bali (SLB), but not every child with a mental disability gets admitted for the special education. Sjaki-Tari-Us offers children with a mental disability under the age of seven and the ones who didn’t get admitted for the SLB, education in the form of play-learngroups. Besides that they also teach the parents how to deal with their child, by inviting them to join their child in the program. For young adults there isn’t anything left after the SLB, if they did go there. Often they are just hanging out with their family and don’t get any stimulation in their development. To offer young adults a place where they can do all sorts of activities and learn practical skills, Sjaki-Tari-Us started a young adult group. Sjaki-Tari-Us is a unique and beautiful foundation with the headquarters located in Ubud. Besides the classes for teenagers and children you can also find Sjaki’s shop, where different products the teenagers made are being sold, and Sjaki’s warung. The warung is a cosy and special place to have a delicious meal. You can sit down- or upstairs. The warung is accessible for everyone and is excessively suited for families with children. Behind the warung we have a big hall where children can play. For those who want to know and see and experience more of Sjaki-Tari-Us’ activities the warung is an excellent place to start. There is information material available and

you can also ask the staff for more information. When they have the time they are more than willing to give you a short conducted tour.

Restaurant Review

By Gerry Williams E-mail:

A Thai Café! Back in the 90’s there were only two real Thai restaurants in Bali, at opposite ends of the scale; the wonderful Terrace at Amanusa and the little Kin Khao in Seminyak. Both prospered but in the following years so many other Thai restaurants opened and failed, some good ones have been and gone, some horrible ones still remain. However, in recent years there appears to have been a total turnaround, now a plethora of Thai restaurants are opening and succeeding. Some are pure Thai whilst others have a serious Thai section to their menu not just the all-over-Bali attempts to reproduce a real Tom Yam Goong or a Thai Fish Cakes or Beef Salad that even resemble the original in looks, let alone taste.

favourite! This is one of those rare one person dishes as is their Pad Thai [rice noodles, prawns, tofu, crushed peanuts and bean sprouts drizzled with tamarind and at Thai Corner, wrapped in an egg net]. All other dishes are meant to be shared, to provide a feast of different tastes. The traditional curries are all here, even though often served differently with the paste coating the meat rather than in a bowl of coconut milk and curry. Massaman is with large chunks of chicken and diced potato. The Panang from central Thailand can be chicken or pork, with that distinctive Kaffir lime flavour.

Pla Gao Pad Prik is grouper in a red curry paste. The whole grouper is served, the head looking at you, the body stripped, Bali is now following the food trend of Australian cities where de-boned and breaded then cooked in a red curry paste. For Thai cuisine has risen from being unknown in the 80’s, to those who understand such things the sweet meat from behind have become country-wide the undisputed no.2 to Chinese, the eyes is stripped at the end of the meal. amongst foreign restaurants. Stir Fries include Beef with Oyster Mushrooms and Kana Moo And now we even have a Thai café in Bali, basic street food Grob [kaylan in oyster sauce tossed with thin slices of pork but from a small modern kitchen within a smart clean warung. belly]. Another vegetarian option is their Water Spinach in Many of the dishes would be better called Thai-inspired black bean sauce or Pad Pak Ruam [mixed vegetables in rather than traditional Thai, but all taste good, and at these oyster sauce]. low prices, who is complaining? The only way to finish a Thail meal, with that incredible array The young chef is well credentialed, once working alongside of flavours, is with the sweet and cool mango on sticky rice, a kitchen full of Thai chefs at Padi [in the old Ritz Carlton Here a mound of that rice is drizzled with coconut milk, a strip days]. The service is friendly, professional and surprisingly of sliced fresh mango on the side. The perfect ending! well informed, even a waiter [not Thai, but from Tabanan] who can pronounce the Thai dish names correctly, and Definitely worth a pit stop when passing. Good taste, great value! describe their contents! First dish to sample is one of my standard measuring sticks, Gai Hor Bai Toey, should be marinated chicken pieces wrapped in pandanus leaf, first steamed to infuse the pandan flavour, then deep-fried just prior to serving to brown the meat and heat. The flesh should be tender inside crisp outrside, the accompanying sauce one of those Thai wonders, tamarind reduction with sesame seeds and oil. At Thai Corner a good honest effort [at a ridiculously cheap Rp20,000 for three pieces], very enjoyable.

The Fish Cakes [tod mun pla] are with a dip of the finely diced cucumber and chilli [pour it all over the fish cakes to soak them, that is how the dish is designed]. The Thai Spring Rolls are stuffed with chicken and glass noodles, the dip a local sweet chilli sauce, more sweet than chilli, but there is never any of it left in the bowl.. Yes, Tom Yam Goong, that famous hot and sour prawn soup is on the menu but there is also the ambrosial Tom Kha Gai, chicken pieces in a coconut milk broth with lemongrass and galangal.

Heading the salad list is the essential Som Tam, shredded green papaya tossed with dried shrimps, chilli and lime juice, that classic hot and sour combo to salivate the taste buds. Yam Nua Yang is a variation on the normal Thai Beef Salad, again with chilli and lime as is the 3rd salad on offer a Yam Woon Sen, this time glass noodles are combined with minced pork, squid and black fungus. The mains are where the Thai eating really begins, and meal being a selection of different dishes and tastes, and they are all here. More standard Thai tests for me are the Massaman [chicken and potato in turmeric] and that import from China but much improved by the Thais, Chicken with Cashew Nuts [Gai Pad Met], neither of which are true to the traditional but still great taste and value, the chicken soft and tender, the flavours not strong but still discernable. Krapow [Thai for basil] is often referred to as the Grandmother special, always offered to visiting grandchildren, after the important question on arrival ‘Kin Kao’….”have you taken rice?” At Thai Corner they use minced chicken [pork is also a common base] stir-fried with Thai basil and finely diced long bean and chilli, the serve of steamed rice accompanying is topped with a fried egg.

Update Boardwalk at The Bali Garden Hotel on Jln Kartika Plaza, Tuban, has been an instant success at its pleasant beachside location. Sitting under the trees, for an hour or two, even makes local residents feel as if they are also here on holidays! It has been built on the budget-priced comfort food concept. The result is that it has been busy since opening. Not trendy and over-priced just simple and friendly. Now they have introduced a Tapas Menu that complements their a la carte offerings. It is available all day but is best suited to their Happy Hour [4.00 to 7.00 p.m., daily] when the Sundowner Special Cocktails go down as easily as the food. Spicy Chorizo slices are perfect snacks whilst sipping your cocktail as are the Thai Fish Cakes and Crumbed Chicken Strips with their Dijon mustard and honey dip or that ever popular Mexican plate of Nachos with a chilli con carne topping [guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream of course]. For something more substantial try the slices of Spanish Omelette, Wagyu Beef Meatballs stewed with tomato and oregano, or King Prawns with a garlic dip. Very popular with mussel lovers are the Green Shell Mussels, gratinated with mozzarella cheese [pictured]. Real value on the beach!

Betelnut has opened in Ubud after a long gestation period. Situated among the trees in

the rectangle beside Animale on Raya Ubud, a 50 metre high cantilevered roof keeps out the inclement weather. Long wooden [polished split tree trunk] communal tables are spread amongst the trees. The communal table system hit the ‘trendy’ spots around the world in the late 80’s but I am afraid that I have never felt comfortable with them. Operation is under the Ary’s Warung team and the menu offering seems both interesting and reasonably priced. Salads include Shredded Chicken with banana blossoms, cherry tomatoes, mint leaves and coriander. A Seared Tuna Nicoise is unusual as it comes with sambal matah, quite a contrast in taste. Noodle dishes include one supposedly from ‘Aceh’, a Seafood Laksa with snapper and chilli jam? Chicken Noodles are in a coconut milk broth with coriander, galangal, tomato and bean thread noodles. Satays include a Minced Duck with pickled cucumber and a Honey & Sage Pork Satay with young papaya salad. All Salad, Noodle and Satay offerings are available in small or large serves, just a pity that the sates do not detail the number of sticks, important when ordering for a shared table, a style of eating that suits this menu admirably. Finish with Crisp Wontons stuffed with date, lychee, walnuts and cardamom cream or a Mango Sweet Custard Spring Roll, served with a sour ginger sauce.

Lilin is one of the restaurants at the 3 in 1 complex that is the Potato Head Beach Club, in

C/R/G-2 Nov. 11

Kerobokan. It is only open for dinners, from 6.00 p.m. every day. It consists of a small downstairs beach area with those long communal tables that attract some and deter others, overlooks the beach and ocean. Styled as South East Asian it surprisingly features a range of Spanish Sangria concoctions [served by the glass or bowl] as their house specialty. You are expected to order first from their Tapas menu followed by their seafood mains, all seafood live and sold by the 100 gram. Tapas include Roast Duck in red curry, Prawn Balls [cold] or Chilli Prawns [hot], a Seaweed Salad or Catfish with chilli sambal. The Seafood is all encompassing; prawns, clams, snapper, grouper, lobster or crab. Vegetarian and Dessert options are minimal.

Han Il has been one of Bali’s better Korean restaurants for many years, on The ByPass

Ngurah Rai between Benoa and Kuta. Now they have opened a 2nd outlet, also on The ByPass but in Sanur [Blanjong end] just after the extinct Koki’s, taking over the site of a Chinese restaurant that sadly did not work even though the food was very good and prices OK [one of those mysteries of the Bali food scene]. Gun Mandu is the Korean name for what the Japanese called Gyoza, steamed dumplings pan-fried on one side, always a great starter even though at Han Il they are listed at the back of the menu? Bulgogi is great [marinated sliced beef that you cook yourself at the table] but here they also have pork and the chicken version which I prefer. It goes well with Pa Jeon, the onion omelette and the wild and spicy Fried Rice with Kim Chi ‘wrapped in a blanket’, folded inside a thin omelette. Their soups have plenty of body, meat [boneless rib, pork or beef] and rice in a thick broth sometimes with kim chi added [chilli marinated cabbage]. Different is their Den Jang Cige, a Korean miso with sliced pork. For the very hungry a bowl of steamed rice topped with sliced bulgogi beef and a fried egg. For the very adventurous there is always Kob Chang Sui, roasted intestines!

Taksu is the organic gem down amongst the trees at the bottom of Jln. Goutama, Ubud. For

Valentine’s Day [next Tuesday February 14] they have organized a special feast by noted author Aine McAteer, highlighting dishes from the Food for Love chapter of her cookbook, a mixture of simple organic and raw foods. This is part of an all day event. The appetizers are raw; beetroot ravioli stuffed with herbed cashew ricotta, zucchini cannelloni filled with a pine nut pate and balsamic marinated mushrooms and a crisp slaw of apple, jicama and kale. Mains are a beetroot infused Vegetable Risotto, accompanied by Asparagus Spears wrapped in wilted scallion, drizzled with a citrus dressing. Alternative dishes are Salmon Pattie with sweet chilli and lime or a Vegan Herbed Tofu Loaf with pesto and leek. To finish a Raw Strawberry Cheesecake with a pecan and coconut crust. Bookings are essential.

Sate Bali began as a small café at the end of Eat Street, opposite the entrance to The Samaya [back when The Samaya was called Santika Villas]. The Balinese owner/chef rose through the ranks to become Executive Chef with Intercontinental Hotels, one of the first Balinese ever so to do. However after many years of preparing different International cuisines he now prefers to cook his own Balinese dishes and always the traditional way, no fusion here! The original site moved to a more central position [still on Jln. Laksmana, Kerobokan], double the size at the entrance to the large outdoor market. Then came a small outlet at Echo Beach and now a new grand outlet on Jln Pratama, Tandjung Benoa. This stretch of road just mainly housed the local chain tourist restaurants [those boasting a dozen different cuisines, if you can recognize them].More and more quality restaurants, in the hands of professionals, are moving in, ready for that long awaited toll road that will make the area just 10 minutes from Sanur! At Sate Bali Tum Bebek [minced duck in banana leaf] and Be Celeng Base Manis, their version of Babi Kecap are musts, as is my favourite Balinese dish, Ayam Pelalah, shredded chicken tossed with chilli and lime. Pealah is essentially a dry dish but far too often too dry and either bland or overworked with chilli. At Sate Bali it is perfect! For an added bonus shards of the fried crispy skin have also been included. Gerry Williams For more information see our website:

By Ayu Spicy

Delicious International Dishes (Indonesian Language Version available at This simple and delicous salad was inspired from a recipe in the Moro Cook Book. It’s beautiful when allowed to sit before serving so the magenta of the beets bleeds into the stark white edges of the yogurt. This keeps well for a day or two in the fridge, although the color will mix. It stands on its own or can be used in a composed salad. You can buy the black cumin seeds in Tiara Dewata.

Our program follows the principles of education set out by Dr. Maria Montessori.

Drain and leave them to cool and then take off the skins and discard. Slice into 1/2 cm thick slices and arrange on a serving plate. Sprinkle the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and parsley evenly over them. In a small bowl mash the garlic with some salt, making a paste. In another bowl mix the yogurt with the milk.

Question: I’ve been with the same man for quite a while now. Our relationship has been rocky from the start. I found out early on that he was and jealous and very controlling. That should have been a red flag, but the relationship was still pretty fresh, and I guess I felt kind of flattered at the time. I thought as time went by that his obsessive behavior would change, but it only got worse. One thing led to another, and eventually he told me how to dress, what I could and couldn’t watch on television, and what music not to listen to, etc.. I had to give up all my friends, he didn’t like me visiting my family, and if I ever broke one of his rules I got either verbally or physically chastised. I have never put up with that kind of behavior from anyone else, but no one was ever quite like him. We were at a relative’s house once, and he got very angry because he “thought” he heard me say Matt Damon is hot. When we got home that night, I got what was coming to me. I am clinically depressed, with OCD disorder. I clean a lot and am very particular about certain things being exactly the way they should be, but I am far from being a monk. It’s hard for me to deal with pressures, and lately I feel really down, almost to the point of no return. I feel I could go crazy any second. The silent treatment in this house goes beyond an hour or two; it lasts for days. I try talking to my boyfriend about our problems, and he never wants to hear it. He tells me to shut up and leave him alone. We do not communicate at all. He says I’m the one who is wrong, and he treats me the way he does because I make it that way. Everything that goes on around here is mine and my daughter’s fault -- never his or his kids’. I just feel that I have the right to be my own person and think for myself. I am 33 years old, and he treats me as if I am 2. I know he is insecure. I’m not trying to make excuses for him. But I thought I could get him past that by staying with him. Am I wrong? I’m really missing romance and companionship. I want more attention. I don’t want to be just convenient for someone when he feels like being nice to me. By all means I’m not saying I have been a saint through all this. I have gone down kicking and screaming some days. Sure I get disgusted with all this too, and I slack on my responsibilities around the house. There are days when I’m in a foul mood, but given the circumstances, I can’t just sit back and take it. He says he’s sick of me, and he doesn’t want to put any more effort into the relationship. But when I say, “OK, I’ll leave,” he gets angry and says he’s sick of my threats. What does that mean? Does he want me to go

or stay? Should I just make the decision for both of us? I’m lost here. Please help me figure this out. Dr. ZZ: Some questions are difficult to answer. Yours is not one of them -- not even close. There is no excuse for domestic violence. Leave him. Run! Don’t stop to explain or say goodbye. Take your daughter with you, and end this relationship immediately. He is sick. You didn’t make him that way. He was that way long before you came along. You owe him nothing. Never talk to him again. Leave as fast as you can. If nothing else, get out for the sake of your child. Question: My mother has a fatal lung disease, and I do not know how long she will be with us. She says very hurtful things to me, my sister, and my children. Should I tell her how we feel, or try to fight the tears, and get through it? Dr. ZZ: You need to be able to spend time with your mother without dreading every minute of it. At the same time, it is important to pay respect to a dying parent even if they are being crabby. My best advice is to express yourself honestly with as much kindness, patience and understanding as you can. After she passes, you will be able to grieve your loss with less guilt if you remain kind and loving until the end. Questions: My mother recently passed away and a former friend, who was very mean in ending their relationship, called and was told not to attend the wake. She attended anyway. Do you think that was proper since she had no contact with my mother for several years? Dr. ZZ: ‘Sorry for your loss. This woman obviously remembered your mother and felt sorry to some extent. Though her attending the wake may have felt inappropriate to you, a wake and a funeral are all parts of getting closure. It is difficult to say what her motives were for wanting to attend the wake. Apparently, she felt there was a need for her to mourn your mother’s death. Let her make her peace in her own way. That in itself ought to justify her presence. Though there are many rules of behavior that govern a funeral to ensure that it remains a respectful affair befitting the life of the deceased, the guest list should be left open to anyone who feels the need to attend and pay their respects.

Nusa Penida: Tri Hita Karana In Action By Tara Khandro

The ancient Balinese lived what now seems to be only a philosophy in the Hindu Balinese religion: Tri Hita Karana. Tri means ‘three’, Hita means ‘Welfare’ and Karana means ‘Cause’. The three causes of ‘Welfare’ or living a life of sustained well being lies in developing a conscious relationship of reciprocity between human and human, human and God and human and Nature. In essence one part of the triad cannot exist without the other. All three are separate atoms existing within the larger molecule of the One. The vapid, rapid and short view development of Bali serves to further separate its people from Nature and breathing life into the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana.

KlungKung decided to banish political enemies with their families and devotees to Nusa Penida. Bayu’s theory for why the island possesses only 5% tree cover (30% needed for a healthy bio-diverse climate) is that the political factions, all Balinese, only knew how to farm. They clear cut the trees thus creating an arid atmosphere. Without trees the rains do not come. To date FNPF plants about 17,000 trees a year with a survival rate of 80%. With no streams and rivers for irrigations, rainwater catchments are built to water crops. By planting trees for medicine, wood, fodder, carving materials, fruit, dyes, honey production and other uses, sustainable harvests can contribute to greater prosperity in the community simultaneously changing the climate of the island. Mike Appleton, a native of England speaks fluent Bahasa and is the resident ‘man who grows vegetables’ at the BBS. He tells me that “One of the reasons why Nusa Penidans do not grow their own vegetables is that they sweep up all of the dry leaves and burn them. These leaves provide needed nutrients to the soil.” Mike has created a bountiful organic garden that trains locals how to use the leaves to make compost, revitalize the soil and grow their own tomatoes, beans, watermelon, basil and other vegetables, currently shipped from Bali.

However on the tiny island of Nusa Penida, a one hour ferry ride East of Bali, through the unanimous agreement of the island’s 40,000 inhabitants in an unprecedented action, wildlife and habitat protection were added to the 41 village community laws. This commitment brings the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana into renewed action. The catalyst for its revitalization is veterinarian, eco-conservationist and founder of the Friends of the National Park Foundation Bayu Wirayudha. In 2004 he was seeking a safe environment to re-establish the endangered Bali Starling back into the wild. Nusa Penida with its dry, limestone plateau was the perfect habitat to rehabilitate and release Bali’s emblem bird. A small rehabilitation sanctuary was built on part of the Royal Family’s land in Ped. The entire island boasts a sign at every village proclaiming Nusa Penida as a safe habitat for the Bali Starling. Nusa Penida is not protected by fences or armed guards and yet the Bali Starlings are no longer poached for the caged pet bird market. Nusa Penida is Indonesia’s first bird sanctuary located within dense human population. Bayu practices and teaches ‘holistic conservation’- Integrating wildlife conservation with habitat restoration with localcommunity wellbeing. “We first identified the need to involve and engage the community in this vision as well as to develop alternative and sustainable livelihoods simultaneously providing conservation education.” How people generate the finances to sustain life is the driving action in any community. Many Nusa Penidans leave the island to go to university and work in cities. In order to understand the value of returning the starlings to life in the wild as well as developing a sustainable co-habitation for humans, plants and wildlife those who have lived for generations as seaweed farmers, cotton and cattle growers, and fisherman need to experience an economic benefit to eco-sustainability. In return for choosing to create a safe habitat for the Bali Starling and conserve natural resources the FNPF give scholarships to selected children to ensure their education. The foundation gives higher priority to scholarships for girls. “We believe educated mothers will in turn bring change to the next generation,” says Bayu. Villagers are encouraged to pick up trash and take it to the recycling plant for cash. The many international volunteers who pay to stay and work in the Bali Bird Sanctuary programs financially fuel the local warungs, local guides and weavers. FNPF also offers Balinese dance lessons, conversational English, supplies weaving groups with natural dyes harvested from FNPF donated trees, distributes free saplings, conducts conservation education and the training of farmers in financially viable, sustainable farming methods. Nusa Penida is a natural limestone plateau with gorgeous cliffs, mountains, waterfalls, caves and natural springs. It is hot and dry. Bayu tells me that to his knowledge there is no record of humans even living on the island before the King of

Mike’s mantra to encourage Nusa Penidans to plant an ecosustainable future is: “Plant for yourself, plant for your children, plant for your grand children…but plant now.” FNPF is continually planting seeds of eco-sustainable consciousness. The foundation started an annual conservation education competition for junior high school students. The competition has been included in the Indonesian Independence Day celebrations since 2005 and attracts thousands of peoples to witness the final competition. (Imagine: The entire island of Bali showing up to witness children demonstrating the many ways that government, resorts, businesses, schools, families and communities can work together to create a society in which the Divine in all matter is what truly matters.) Nusa Penida is all about Nature. The clean air invites your breath to relax into your body and the earth rises to greet your feet. Taking a jalan-jalan along the beach, the men, women and children smiling and waving as if they have known you for years. Black pigs freely root through the coconut, mangrove and banana tree jungles. Goa Giri Putri is a massive natural limestone cave, a sacred Balinese temple that receives hundreds of Balinese a month. Giant Manta Rays play in crystal clear aquamarine waters. Scuba divers can enjoy meeting the mysterious Mola-Mola fish on their annual visit from July-December. The island is ringed with wood frames for seaweed farming and beyond the frames are rich coral reefs for snorkeling. Crystal Cove is an ideal white sand swimming beach where snorkeling boats from Sanur stop for a day’s outing. The currents surrounding the island have created a natural protection for what the locals say Nusa Penida is: Sacred Ground.

The island’s first “eco-green hotel” is being built on land near the Bali Bird Sanctuary. The small hotel, accommodating a maximum of 34 people, is being built by locals. The dangerously tall coconut trees felled to lay the foundation for the three buildings are processed on the island and the timber is used for doors, windows and ceiling beams. Limestone from the island is used as the foundation for the road leading into the hotel grounds. In a very brief encounter with the owner he told me that he does not want Nusa Penida to become “Bali: Chapter II”. However, when I walk through the hotel, restaurant and reception buildings that will form Nusa Penida’s first ‘eco-green hotel”, I pause to consider how these concrete structures wired for air conditioning may not be the beginning of “Bali Chapter II.” The hotel forms a U shape. There are 6 rooms on either side of the U with doors opening towards the middle of the U. There is no ventilation in the bathroom. The coconut trees make the doors and the bed frames. A large window opens up onto the forest. Leaving the room, closing the door behind, a few feet in front is the door to another room. The hotel feels like a standard, lifeless motel on any roadside in the Middle of No Where U.S.A. Land is a very valuable resource, more valuable than gold. On Bali, sons are selling their rice fields faster than MacDonald’s can serve hamburgers. Land to grow food and water to drink are dwindling all over the planet. If we don’t change directions towards living within a holistic conservation model, it is plausible wars will be initiated over food and water. FNPF has developed a great infra structure for Nusa Penidans to continue to value and revitalize the land in a h a r m o n i c relationship with humans. What choices do Nusa Penidans need to make for this eco-tourist destination to sustain the special balance between human and human, human and God and human and Nature on Nusa Penida? Although the islanders have reinforced their sacred ground by amending its awig-awig and adat traditional laws, regarding wildlife and eco-conservation, perhaps now additional laws need to be made regarding eco-tourism development. The island is under the governing auspices of the KlungKung regency and they too perceive the tourist dollars available on Nusa Penida. Yet Nusa Penida also possesses the autonomy to establish community based eco-conservation regulations that have the potential to develop Nusa Penida with an eye to its effects on the “Next 7 generations”. There is a very special spiritual energy on Nusa Penida. A visit to Nusa Penida is a return to a time when we lived directly in alignment with the divine blueprint of Nature. The more simply we live, the more ease and grace in our lives. When you visit, take plenty of cash because the local ATM seldom works. You will find great Nasi Campur for 8,000IDR and request a fisherman to grill a fresh fish. Call Agus: 081747941761-to stay in a guest room fitting Bali standards. There are signs in the villages for home stays or contact the Bali Bird Sanctuary. Honor the sacred ground of Nusa Penida and in exchange, Nusa Penida, its people, wildlife and environments will welcome you home to your heart.

The success of the holistic conservation model is leading the island into a new phase: Eco-tourism. Bayu serves to counsel communities on how to take this next step. “In Bali, a resort is built by non-Balinese. The workers in the resort are not from Bali. As a result the people living around the resort remain in poverty and become jealous. Hire and train locals to build and work in the resort.” He also suggests developing rules regarding building structures in alignment with the eco-system. The FNPF is developing home stays in different villages for eco-tourists to become a part of the community.

Local News Price of Subsidized Fuel Could Rise The government is now considering raising the price of subsidized fuel rather than phasing out its use, as it deals with growing public pressure and an admission by the state oil and gas company that it is not ready for the scheme, Widjajono Partowidagdo, the deputy minister for energy and mineral resources, said on Friday (20/1). The current plan to begin restricting the use of statesubsidized fuel on April 1 has met with strong resistance. Under the plan, only motorcycles and public transportation vehicles would be allowed to use subsidized fuel. Everyone else would have to fill up with higher-octane unsubsidized fuel, which is almost double the price of subsidized Premium. The scheme would initially be introduced in Java and Bali before gradually expanding to the rest of the country. Though consumer activists derided it as a “panic policy” and lawmakers slammed it as “careless,” the government had been adamant that the new scheme would be pushed through. But Thursday’s admission by Pertamina’s president director, Karen Agustiawan, that the company would not have enough fueling stations in Java and Bali ready to meet increased demand for unsubsidized fuel by April 1 appears to have been the final straw. Another alternative suggested by the government - shifting to natural gas - is also not yet feasible. In Jakarta, there are only six fuel stations that sell compressed natural gas, while just 10 provide liquefied gas for vehicles.

A gradual increase in the price of subsidized fuel has been suggested by analysts and experts as an option that would achieve the objective of reducing the government’s subsidy spending while not dealing a severe blow to prices. The existing subsidy restriction plan, according to analysts, would double consumer spending on fuel and lead to at least a 1 percent increase in inflation. Premium, the subsidized fuel, is sold at Rp 4,500 per liter, while the price for the higher-octane Pertamax and Pertamax Plus is Rp 8,000 to Rp 9,000. The price of fuel is a sensitive issue because it drives up inflation. In October 2005, annual inflation shot up to 17.9 percent from 9.1 percent the previous month after the government raised subsidized fuel prices. Widjadjono said increasing the price of subsidized fuel was not allowed under the 2012 budget, and it would have to be included in the revised 2012 state budget. Widjadjono added that the size of the price increase had yet to be determined. “For me, personally, the higher the price the better,’’ he said. In 2011, due to higher crude oil prices and an increase in consumption of subsidized fuel, the government spent Rp. 165 trillion ($18.5 billion), on fuel subsidies - 130 percent of the Rp. 127 trillion allotted in the budget. “If the price of subsidized fuel is raised, it will be effective, it will be better and easier,’’ Pertamina spokesman Mochammad Harun said.

Indonesian Man Arrested for Kicking Woman He thought was a Ghost A 38-year-old Indonesian security guard has been charged with assault after kicking a 20-year-old woman in the face after mistaking her for a predatory ghost. The guard was on duty in Bandung, Java, when “suddenly a figure, who was sitting on the floor and clad in white with hair covering the face, moved slowly in a weird way toward the elevator”, according to the Jakarta Post. The guard “sensed a threat to himself and the others in the elevator” and kicked the ghost to the floor “so that everyone ... could run and save themselves,” the security officer’s lawyer told the Jakarta Post. But guard Sunarya’s seemingly noble deeds have landed him more punishment than accolades, as the “ghost” turned out to be the 20-year-old daughter of a coal businessman who was in the hotel playing a “ghost trick” for a friend’s birthday. She was later hospitalized for a bruised face and broken tooth. Sunarya now faces charges of assaulting the girl, who was dressed as suster ngesot, a “crawling nurse ghost”. But the security officer remains modest. “I have a wife and two little children, I hope everything will be fine,” he told reporters. “I just did my job as a security guard.” (25th January 2012) Some Costa Concordia Crew Members from Bali Traumatized A number of crew members of Costa Concordian cruise ship that ran aground recently said they had been traumatized by the incident. Some 23 crew members from Bali who survived the incident arrived here on Saturday (21/1) evening, greeted by their families. Some of their parents said they were traumatized by the incident and did not wish their sons would work as ship crew again. However some of the survivors said they would work as crew again but they would need a long time to recover. “For the time being I would take a rest. I would think again to work as ship crew again but I must work,” Putra Suwantara (28), one of the crewmembers arriving in the fourth batch said. Wiastri, the father of Edi Suparma, another crewmember said he would not allow his son to work again as a ship crewmember. Edi did not look well on arrival and would not talk about his experience. “He need not work there again. He had better work at home. What is important is that we have something to eat,” he said. (January 21st 2012) South Korea to Invest in Bali Waste Disposal Site A South Korean investor plans to invest in Bali’s waste sector in the Final Disposal Facilities (TPA) in Suwung, Denpasar. According to Ketut Teneng, spokesperson of the Bali administration, the South Korean investor has declared its interest. However, Bali has yet to respond to the proposal as TPA Suwung is still under the management of PT NOEI. “The South Korean investor wants to invest in TPA Suwung. However, TPA Suwung is still under the management of PT Navigat Organik Energi Indonesia (NOEI) for 20 years since 2004. The Ministry of Public Works had granted Rp63 billion worth of fund to TPA Suwung in efforts to handle water spill from the waste,” said Teneng. PT NOEI has not been able to fulfill its contract agreement with Badung Regency, Tabanan Regency, Gianyar Regency and Denpasar. Therefore, the provincial government will review PT NOEI’s contract and will find new investor. “In the beginning, (PT NOEI) ensured us that it can provide 10 megawatt of electricity and compost. However, until now, they can only provide 0.7 megawatt,” he said. Teneng said that the Bali administration is studying the legal aspect of its contract termination with PT NOEI. “We now can say that PT NOEI has failed,” Teneng said. (January 26th 2012) High Waves, Kuta Beach Temporarily Closed Travelers on Kuta Beach were prohibited from activities at sea due to rough seas recently Chairman of the Kuta Beach Task Force I Gusti Ngurah Tresna, said onThursday (26/1). “For the moment, we will restrict tourist activity on the beach for swimming or surfing until the sea is safe,” said Tresna familiarly called Gung Aji. As anticipated, the beach task force made an announcement over the loudspeaker to tourists on the beach and planted red flags with the skull logo along the shoreline as a sign of dangerous seas. Gung Aji explained that the ban considered the tourists safety to be paramount during high tidal waves. Some of the waves were so high they came crashing though the street barriers and almost overflowing into the road. (January 26th 2012)

Garuda Plane Diverted due to Bad Weather A Garuda flight from Jakarta scheduled to land at Denpasar`s Ngurah Rai airport on Saturday (21/1) afternoon was diverted to Surabaya due to bad weather. Flight GA 406 was scheduled to arrive at Denpasar at 3pm but due to the bad weather it flew back to Surabaya, Maria Ekaristi, a member of the committee for the Bali Documentary Film Festival (FFDB), said. Maria Ekaristi was to pick up a Garuda passenger, Marcella Zalianty, an Indonesian actress scheduled to attend a press conference held in connection with the festival. Marcella who was chosen to serve as the festival ambassador finally arrived at around 6pm but failed to attend the press conference. Several other flights also underwent a delay due to the unfavorable weather conditions on Saturday afternoon. Airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I spokesperson Sherly Yunita said the Garuda plane did not fail to land but was diverted due to the weather. (January 21st 2012) Typhoons Thrash Indonesia - 14 Dead, 60 Injured, Baby Girl Crushed in Bali Landslide The Indonesian government announced today (29/12) that 14 people were killed and 60 others injured as a result of a tropical typhoon which hit the region over the last four days, bringing down trees and power lines and damaging hundreds of homes. “Houses were damaged in 23 districts and cities due to rainstorms on Wednesday,” National Disaster Management Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said. “Those killed were crushed by falling trees.” Rainstorms and strong winds were brought about by Tropical Cyclone Iggy in the Indian Ocean, south of the resort island of Bali and nearby Nusa Tenggara islands, Nugroho said. “Tropical cyclone Iggy resulted in wind speeds of more than 60 kilometers per hour and waves four-to-six meters (20 feet) high in the waters in several parts of Indonesia.” The Jakarta Globe newspaper reported a ferry carrying more than 200 people, including five Australians, heading to the Gili islands off Bali nearly capsized after being caught in waves up to three meters high, but there were no casualties. An 18 month old baby girl was buried alive when the roadside café that her family was sheltering in during a storm, was swept away in a landslide. The landslide occurred at the popular tourist recreation park of Taman Ayun, Mengwil, Bali. Frantic efforts to locate the girl failed to save her and her body was recovered 18 hours later. Storms, landslides and floods are common in Indonesia during the annual rainy season, which peaks between December and February. (January 29th 2012) Maternal Mortality Rate Still far from MDG`s Target Minister of Health Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih said the maternal mortality rate was difficult to reduce to meet Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and further intensified efforts were needed. The fifth MDG`s target is to reduce the maternal mortality rate to 102 per 100,000 of live births in 2015. The result of Basic Survey of Indonesian Health (SDKI) 2007 showed that the mortality rate has decreased to 228 per 100,000 of live births, but according to linear regression analysis in the 1994-2007 period, the maternal mortality rate by 2015 of 161 per 100,000 of live births would still have to be achieved. In order to achieve the target, since 2011 the government has been implementing a childbirth Health Care Security Program (Jampersal) for pregnant women who have no other security programs. The Ministry of Health has also launched other programs such as published the Mother and Child Book (KIA), Childbirth Planning and Complication Prevention Program (P4K), Waiting House Program, cooperation of midwives and infant programs, upgrading programs of clinic medical workers in obstetric neonatal basic emergency service and upgrading programs in hospital medical workers of obstetric neonatal essential comprehensive service.

Tattoo Business in Bali to Be Regulated Authorities in South Bali are planning to prepare regulations in efforts to prevent HIV/AIDS transmission via tattoos. The Deputy of Badung regency, Ketut Sudikerta, said the regulation on tattoo business in Kuta is a follow-up over reports about two Australians who were infected by the HIV virus in November 2011 after having their bodies tattooed. Chief of Legislative Agency of Badung, Wayan Puspa Negara, said that there were hundreds of tattoo studios scattered throughout Kuta and that firm regulations needed to be put in place in order to control the spread of the disease (January 26th 2012) INDONESIA: Bird Flu Deaths Raise Red Flags Two recent deaths from bird flu in Indonesia highlight the need for continued vigilance against a possible resurgence of the deadly virus, an official and health expert warned. On 16 January, a five-year-old girl from northern Jakarta died after being tested positive for the H5N1 bird flu virus. She was a relative of a 24-year-old man who died on 7 January, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, adding that the two had contact with the same pigeons in their neighborhood. According to WHO, the latest fatalities brought the death toll from avian influenza in the country to 152, out of 184 confirmed cases since 2006. The Health Ministry’s director-general of disease control and environmental health, Tjandra Yoga Aditama, said there was no evidence that human-to-human transmission was involved in the latest case. Of 60 bird flu cases detected last year in Indonesia, 11 were fatal, Aditama said. Public awareness campaigns were done sporadically, he said, and official reporting of bird flu cases in poultry has been spotty. The Health Ministry said bird flu was endemic in poultry in all but three of Indonesia’s 31 provinces. The ministry has designated 100 hospitals across the archipelago nation as being well-equipped to treat bird flu patients. (January 27th 2012) Govt Fuel Price Hike will cause Massive Increase in Motorbikes on the Roads The government’s plan to limit the use of subsidized fuel oils beginning April 1, 2012 will see a drastic increase in motorcycle sales, adversely increasing subsidized fuel consumption by motorcyclists. Under the new law which will allow subsidized fuel for bikes but not for cars, many low-income car owners will likely turn to motorcycles, raising the consumption of premium gasoline which is subsidized by the government. Private cars will then use non-subsidized pertamax gasoline whose price is about two times higher than premium gasoline. Subsidized premium gasoline is sold at Rp4,500 per liter while pertamax plus 95 is Rp8,850 per liter and pertamax 92 Rp8,600 per liter. “The policy will boost motorcycle business and raise its sales by at least 10 percent,” Senior Sales Manager of PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) Sigit Kumala said. He said that motorcycles would become alternative transportation means for the people amid the bad condition of the country’s public transportation facilities, particularly in big cities. Director of Public Policy Study Center Sofyano Zakaria shared Sigit`s view saying that the government`s new plan would increase the number of motorcyclists. “The government should pay attention to the significant increase in the number of motorcycles in Indonesia,” Sofyano Zakaria said. The increase in the number motorcycles would in turn increase their fuel consumption. Data showed that in 2009 there were 52.4 million motorcycles in the country. This number rose to 80 million in 2011. “If the government keeps on turning a blind eye to the increasing number of motorcycles and continues to be allow them to use subsidized gasoline, then we need to question its attitude,” he said adding that the government should better increase the price of the fuel.

Congratulations! Of the twelve recently named dirtiest beaches in the world Indonesia has the honor of nurturing two of them. Admittedly Indonesia does have rather a lot of coastline to its name but as the source of this information, surfingatlas. com says “no one quite does environmental damage on such a scale as Indonesia when they really put their mind to it”. The beaches in question are Marunda Beach in Jakarta and our very own and beloved Seminyak Beach in downtown Bali. This aligns our tourist hotspot with such dubious locations as Chowpatty Beach in Mumbai India, and Haina in Dominican Republic.

LOTS OF LAND AND THE STARRY SKIES ABOVE I don’t think you can get a more luxurious, decadent looking animal than a tiger. (Hence why they ended up as so many floors and couch throws early last century). Bali lost its last tiger in the 40’s, the Javanese the 80’s and now the Sumatran is on the endangered list with only 300- 400 living in a natural habitat. And it’s because of this loss of habitat, due to the land ravaging nature of palm oil plantations that the Sumatran Tiger’s population will continue to decline.

All summer long rubbish is tipped into river ways and stuffed into drains waiting patiently till the rains of the wet give it a big old flush and it bursts forth upon our once salubrious shoreline.

A Blurb from the Kulture Kid! By Vaughan Hatch

Are the attitudes towards divorce of today’s Balinese society changing? In traditional Balinese society, the most common reason for divorce or for a man to ‘take’ another wife was a failure (with only the woman to blame, of course) to bear children. However, due to more modern medical knowledge and awareness, it is becoming increasingly common to hear of people getting divorced because they don’t get on, or due to domestic violence, infidelity etc. Nonetheless, the connotations of a divorced woman from a sexual viewpoint are still generally viewed negatively. As it is expected that a Balinese bride is a virgin before she marries, a divorced woman searching for another soul mate is seen as ‘second hand goods’. All said, with the overwhelming influence of globalisation, access to information, and a general new-found openness in Indonesian society, there is evidence that Balinese attitudes towards divorce are changing, albeit slowly. From what I can gauge, Indonesia – Bali included – follows the social and environmental trends of more developed nations, but with a delay of around 20–30 years on most accounts. A female Balinese friend of mine went through a divorce more than 10 years ago and had to raise two children on her own. The reason for divorce in this case, was simply due to unsuitability between her and her husband. Post-divorce she was accepted back into her Balinese family, even though she had converted to a religion other than Hinduism. Examples like this not only demonstrates that Balinese are becoming more accepting of a woman making a life-decision herself but also that Balinese women are more confident to take the direction of their lives into their own hands. However, the above example is still the exception rather than the rule, and as with many public services in Bali, there are few places where people can turn to for advice, resolution and help with coping with the trauma of separation and divorce, dealing with the social stigmas and consequences that still exist in traditional society. Vaughan Hatch has immersed himself with Balinese culture, living with locals in Bali since 1997. He speaks fluent Indonesian and Balinese, and is unashamedly addicted to playing gamelan. A linguistic, archaeology and publishing graduate, he works for indOKiwi ‘linguistic and cultural solutions’ in Sanur. Email him on or call (0361) 464201 for further queries.

SCHEDULE THAT BII MayBank Bali Marathon (22 April) ‘Push Your Limit’ is the theme of this very first international full scale marathon to be held in Indonesia in over twenty years. The reason that I’m scheduling this so early is to give you a chance to get into shape. The marathon will cover a distance of 42.195 kilometres and may be run by individuals or teams running in relay. If you are not up to that sort of distance then there is the half marathon of 21.0975 kilometres and a shorter run of 10 kilometres. There is even a marathon for the kids. The aim of the marathon is to promote awareness of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle through participation in regular programmes of sport and fitness. All participants will be provided with a timing chip that will record personal running times. There is more information on their website and you can register on-line if you wish to participate. The marathon is also a charity event. This really does add to the diversity of what Bali has to offer and let’s hope that this event is a great success and it becomes an annual event like so many other successful annual events in Bali which add to its charm.

S.B.C. Yoga Teacher Training (10 April – 6 May) Bali really is the perfect place for a retreat and Mount Batukaru has to be one of the most untouched, most beautiful, tranquil, picturesque and stunning places on the island. The Bali Mountain retreat is no exception tucked away, almost like a hidden secret, removed far away in time from the hustle and bustle of south Bali, nestled on the eastern slopes of the mountain with amazing views of Bali sprawling out below. S.B.C. stands for strength, belief and courage and the aim of this organisation is to provide the highest quality teacher training at a reasonable cost, spreading the knowledge of yoga throughout the world with love and non-greed. The course encompasses 200 hours over 27 days. Each day begins early with asana, pranayama and meditation before a wholesome and healthy breakfast followed by lectures and practicals and concluding with asana at 5 pm. The cost includes teacher training and a manual. Accommodation is extra. Even if you are not going to attend this retreat, the Bali Mountain retreat is worth a visit. It takes you back to the beauty of Bali and how it really is off the beaten track, a paradise away from the traffic and pollution. There are natural springs within a close walking distance providing a great place to have a swim, beautiful rice terraces and a great place for gentle walks. Accommodation is available at a reasonable cost. If you are interested in the yoga training, you can apply on-line at the website below. At S.B.C. they also believe in giving back and are committed to making the world a better place. 10% of the fees are donated to a listed charity organisation of your choice which can be found on their website. This is a great opportunity for yoga enthusiasts wishing to develop their teaching skills and a jewel of a place for those of you looking for a much needed escape.

It is time to mark your calendar for the first qualifying event in the Texas Chilli Cookoff season. The competition heats up as competitors bring their favourite home chilli recipe to discover the best chilli of the day.

Professional cooks and restaurants are invited to display their culinary chilli talents and entrants can participate as individuals or teams and creativity is the essence as you can use props and get into the spirit with team t-shirts etc. In fact anyone with a ‘winning’ secret recipe may participate.

Bali Skaters By Alison Monsoon

In an empty street, deep in the gritty city of Denpesar, young men and boys mill about greeting each other with a silent nod or a homie hand grip. Holding planks of wood, faces calm and concentrated, they eye the surrounding concrete and bitumen scape. The street is theirs. They are on familiar terms with every curve, angle, ledge, rail and step. But they are not a discontent street gang looking for a bust up, rather they are looking to bust out, as in “dude let’s go down town and bust out a session.” Translation required? Well that is skater speak for “excuse me friend let us go into town and have a little fun on our skate boards, doing tricks on all the vertical and horizontal formations we can find on the street.” Bali may be well known for its ocean surfing culture but the street surfing culture, a.k.a. skate boarding, has been surging in popularity here in recent years. Sure it is a world wide phenomenon but it is more remarkable for those who live on an island that has little in the way of public space, smooth city streets or pavements; surely a necessity if you want to move freely about on four solid wheels a couple of inches in diameter? Skaters in other parts of the world might have architecturally designed skate parks that imitate a street scape located in every suburb, councils maintaining pristine kerbs, steps, and rails, and modern glossy buildings with vast geometric terrazzo entrances. Meanwhile Bali skaters have to contend with the very opposite of this and that’s what makes these skaters more impressive. Their skating is raw – it is pure “street”. Ida Bagus Prasuta “Gus Pras” is one of skating Bali’s pioneers. His older brother was shown some moves by a Londoner on holiday and when Gus Pras later hit the decks on his brother’s old board, he was 13 and it was the early 1990’s. Since then skate boarding’s popularity has peaked and slumped in mainstream culture. But for those that love to skate these fads matter little. Gus Pras and other locals have been finding their own spaces, making their own box jumps and ramps in the nooks and crannies of Bali that offer them some skating liberty. One highly visible locale is the roundabout at Galleria. And there are plenty of others with skaters always looking for new locations to fang around. That is what street skating is all about. Finding a new location and discovering the potential that lies within the built structures. It is an enticing challenge for any freestyle skater.

Currently they are working with the government to fund competitions (such as the Walikota Cup held in February) and, most importantly, more public spaces 2. dedicated to skating. With many areas of Bali appearing to be short of government funding a skate park may seem a low priority to some. However recent research by Griffith University in Australia found that most youth have around 50% of their time spent as leisure. It was found that hanging at the skate park came in closely behind hanging at home and with friends as a preferred leisure activity. Not surprisingly the skate park is the favoured place to be if you are a guy between 11 and 17, although ages 4 to 54 enjoy a spin there too. The research also concluded that overall skate parks offer a healthy physical outlet and a healthy way to form social connections. Interestingly, despite what some may think, they are not a place for thugs and drugs. PSB is an example of this positive social behaviour with Gus Pras pointing out that respecting Balinese culture is a very important basis from which the organisation makes its decisions. Recently they dropped the boards for a day of environmental enthusiasm with their members participating in a massive planting of mangrove shoots at the Mangrove Forests in Sanur. Gus Pras proudly says they also organise for city clean ups as a show of respect to the spaces where they love to skate and involve themselves in charity whenever possible. PSB also organises public events, competitions, shows, and skatepark design. And despite their awesomely cool hip street style and fly by the seat of your pants moves Gus Par promises that it is not a clique culture. “When new skater’s join in with us we will teach them things we know. We welcome beginners and other skaters are happy for people to join in.” Gotta board and a pair of feet but no idea? Dressed 5. in skater duds but always “too busy” to roll? Time to get some street cred!

While street skating can offer variety it has its limitations of course; rain and dangerous surfaces being two of them. The last couple of years have seen the opening of the privately owned indoor skate park Motion, near Carrefour off Sunset in Kuta, and Globe’s bowl also in Kuta. These two venues require a small fee but offer a large, smooth, traffic free skating venue fitted out to 1. make most skaters happy. Non skaters can find joy there too, just organise a lesson. Frequented by locals, expatriates and even tourists, it is mostly haunted by kids who drop in after school. Both places are open till late, offering a bit of after hours skating time to “dudes” who now must toil. But Gus Pras and his friends want more of these parks, and they want the government to help. With this in mind they formed the not for profit organisation Persatuan Skateboarders Bali (PSB) in 2000. While it had humble beginnings, since 2007 things have been moving rapidly, their facebook page alone has over 2000 followers.

1a - Push off

1b - Bring foot to board

with it, feel it, don’t intellectualise……EXCELLENT!! Now once you have pushed off in move number 1. you can start turning, handy if there is a wall or descending steps approaching! To turn just slightly lean your weight in the direction you want to turn. If you need to turn sharply start lifting the front wheels slightly by applying more weight to the tail of the board and then direct the nose in the direction you wish to go. 3. Stopping can be useful too… Perhaps the simplest way to stop is put a foot on the ground but this can be very awkward if you are moving fast. A lot of people tend to tail stop. To tail stop push your back foot against the tail of the board so that it touches the ground and acts as a brake.

3 - Stop

4. Tictac? To tic tac you first need to be in motion and then you need to swing the front of the board from side to side 10 o’clock, 2o’clock, 10 o’clock, 2 o’clock in forward moving arcs. Get the feel of this one and you can move all over the place.

4 - Tic tac

Lastly the Ollie. The Ollie is the key to beginning your tricks because this is how you lift you and your board off the ground to jump up or down something. Stationary or rolling get your back foot on the tail, bend your knees deep then slam your back foot down hard and then jump lifting off with that back foot. Your front foot sort of rolls with the board bringing it with you. Really hoist those knees up high. As you land back on your board remember to keep your knees bent. Gus Pras suggests practicing without your board to get a feel for the movement.

1c - Adjust feet

Firstly put your foot (toe pointing forward) at the FRONT of the board but just behind the bolts, left (or right if you are a goofy foot), and push off with your back foot. Too push off you need to think of it like walking so have your “push off” foot a little in front of your skate board foot. Your push off should be smooth and powerful. As you push off and land 5a - Get down low 5c - Land safely 5b- Ollie - kees up! your back foot on the board (again behind the bolts) adjust your feet so they are parallel on your board The rest is yours to discover. Just remember to enjoy and you have balance. To begin with just roll with it. the board till it stops. As you get more confident push off again before you run out of speed. But Copyright © 2012 Bali Advertiser remember make your moves confidently, too much You can read all past articles of hesitation can lead to falling off the board. Stick BA Feature Article at

08 February - 22 February, 2012

Global Goings On........ It’s another new year! And there are many significant events on the calendar for us to commemorate, commiserate and outright celebrate. This column will be dedicated to sharing with BA readers many of those notable occasions, specifically those that we here (local and guests) might choose to acknowledge. Valentines Day February 14, 2012



Romance is in the air! In modern memory, Valentines Day (amended from Saint Valentines Day) is a hybrid translation of competing histories all laying claim to the origins of the celebration. Typical of legend, Valentines Day’s historical relevance varies according to whom you are speaking and of what religious denomination they may hark. The most common theory is of three martyred Christians named Valentine whose deaths or burials fall on the 14th of February in the first few hundred years A.D. One dominant and whimsical legend reports of a roman priest named Valentine performing secret wedding ceremonies during a time when they were banned by Emperor Claudius II who, in his self- serving bid to recruit young men into his army, had decided that romance was a conflicting distraction for soldiers in their prime. Valentine was caught, beaten and beheaded for his betrayal and some even report that the very first ‘valentine’ was gifted when he had a note delivered to the jailers daughter whom he had fallen in love with whilst waiting on death row. Valentines Day has also been linked to Lupercalia, a festival observed in ancient Roman times from the 13th - 15th February to fend off evil spirits and clear the way for the dissemination of health and fertility. One activity, it is said, was the matchmaking of maidens and bachelors by placing the names of townswomen in an urn and drawn by the men to then be paired for the year with these random unions often ending in marriage. This ‘romantic lottery’ was considered un-christian and later outlawed when February 14th was officially named Saint Valentines Day by Pope Gelasius in 498AD approx. Other historical links point to the ancient Athenian calendar which celebrates Gamelion in the period between mid January to mid February when Zeus married Hera. And in parts of Europe during the middle ages, it was believed that mid February coincided with the birds mating season which bolstered the concept of the date being a romantic time of year. In current times, Valentines Day refers to the celebration of love, mostly the romantic variety. A ‘valentine’ as a noun, is simply a love note or gift, it can also refer to the sweetheart selected on Valentines Day. The commercialisation of St Valentines Day evolved with the printing press and by the end of the 19th century, handwritten ‘valentines’ were being overwhelmed with mass produced print versions. Meanwhile, personal delivery was taken over by the increasingly affordable postal system and the increase in ‘racy’ poetry during this staunchly conservative era is attributed to the newly accessible delivery system which allowed for anonymity. The continuation of this enterprise has exploded into obligatory gift giving of all sorts. Cards, flowers and chocolates remain the front runners but jewellery, romantic getaways or dinners, lingerie or these days perhaps and engraved iPad will hit the mark! So, after the Christmas decorations have finally been removed from the shelves in the shops and before the onslaught of Easter eggs and the like arrive, retailers in the highly commercialised parts of the world, bombard us with the alluded obligation of the valentine... Sadly, this relentless pursuit of our purse, in the current consumerist society detracts from the romance for which it is intended to spread. One of the great upshots of being on the island of Bali is we are shielded from much of the rest of the worlds prattle about such things but perhaps this subtle reminder may encourage a few of you to get out your pen and paper and hand craft a genuine valentine to be hand delivered to your sweetheart this year...

On this day…. February 11, 1990 Nelson Mandela was released from prison after serving 27 years of a life sentence on sabotage convictions as a result of his anti apartheid activism in South Africa. He immediately took up the mantel of his ANC party and led his country to it’s first mutli racial, democratic election where he was appointed president of South Africa and served in this role from 1994 - 1999. On this day…. February 20, 1985 Following more than a decade of highly controversial national debate, the land mark decision to approve social legislation allowing the sale of contraceptives was handed down defying the wishes of the powerful Catholic Church in Ireland.

A leap year is an event that for most, doesn’t appear to have a significant impact on the surface. Perhaps it’s simply an extra day’s interest earned or spent, an additional working day for some, a traditional opportunity for the ladies to propose to their partners or a rarer than usual birthday for a select few. This year, February will have 29 days instead of the normal 28, but why....? Calendars are a means by which humans attempt to reconcile culture with nature as well as record spiritual, religious and civil phenomena both past and present. In short, they work to organise units of time to satisfy the requirements of human societies. Throughout the worlds history, many hundreds of calendars have been formulated according to varying external factors all related to patterns within nature. In ancient times, when the world was unexplored and universal cycles were unknown and locally irrelevant, specific systems of order obeyed whatever factors seemingly dictated important aspects of society such as agriculture, hunting and migration. This mostly resulted in calendars that followed lunar or solar patterns or a combination. Lunar calendars adhere to the patterns of the moon which has twelve cycles of 29 or 30 days totalling to eleven or twelve days less than a solar year. This causes the seasons to shift in correspondence, so many cultures employ a lunisolar calendar adding intercalary months where required to realign the seasons. The calendar of Islam follows a purely lunar system while the Chinese, Hindu and Hebrew calendars are some more prominent examples of lunisolar calendars in current practice. It is the ancient Egyptian calendar that forms the fundamental premise of the current global standard. Thousands of years BC, Egyptian astronomers recognised the link between solar activity and the annual flooding of the Nile which enriched the earth for their sophisticated farming culture. A solar (or tropical) year, generally speaking, is the time it takes for the sun to orbit the earth. They had deduced that one full cycle is very close to 365 days but the math is a little more complicated and by adhering to the simple 365 day format the calendar gradually falls out of sync with the seasons. Eventually, in his time as ruler of Rome, Julius Caesar (as advised by his astronomers) introduced a reformed version of the solar calendar which shifted the beginning of the year from the vernal equinox in late March to the 1st of January as we now know it. To amend the approximately 1/4 day discrepancy of the 365 day year, he added an extra day every four years creating a leap year which significantly reduced the shortfall to just over eleven minutes. However, in long term projections, this too has its complications. Finally, the Gregorian calendar was introduced, although widespread scepticism about the religious motivations of it’s namesake, Pope Gregory VIII, stunted it’s acceptance and it ultimately took three centuries from 1592 for it to become fully implemented as the world wide benchmark that we operate by today. While it was not ground breaking in it’s design, following the principles of it’s predecessors, it refined the math and asserted that century years falling on leap years (1700, 1800 etc), would be exempt from accommodating the extra day unless they are exactly divisible by 400. Confused? Don’t be. This amendment has reduced the yearly discrepancy to 26 seconds, a significant reduction that need only be amended every 3,323 years safely falling outside our lifetime!

Printable children’s card games: Children’s card games are expensive on Bali. Although high quality, durable and full color, the imported card games for sale at local children’s toy and bookshops cost anywhere from Rp115,000 to Rp175,000. However, there are hundreds of free printable card games downloadable from safe-to-print websites. Just point, click, print, cut out, fold and glue your cards on to heavy weight paper. Print at a reduction, usually around 85%, to make sure the images fit onto a full page. These free printable links have board games, bingo games, word games, p u z z l e g a m e s , m e m o r y games, lotto games, and even free printable whole card decks and dice. Great for rainy day activities, homeschooling, teaching aids, boredom busters, car trips, increasing vocabulary, and turning phonics drills into pure entertainment. Most have a black and white print option to save money on ink. Here are only a few: a) www.anglomaniacy for card games in pdf format adapted from the traditional game “Go Fish.” Game sets include playing cards and instructions; b) http://www.dltk for custom Bingo cards using pictures from a theme that you select or vocabulary substitute words that you provide; c) for brilliant full color card games based loosely on ‘Old Maid.’ Tea or spice-flavored fruit juices: Because they are so sweet, many don’t choose to drink local commercial fruit juices at full strength. The simplest and cheapest way to stretch expensive fruit juice is just add as much water or mix (one-to-one) the same amount of floral or herbal flavored teas. This way you can turn every liter of fruit juice into two liters of flavored fruit juice. Add cinnamon tea to apple juice; bake cinammon sticks, lemon grass and ginger root first for 10-15 minutes in oven, crush, then pour in boiling water. Or place a cinnamon stick in any tea while it steeps to add flavor and health benefits. Mild green tea and lemon grass tea blends well with a variety of juices. Peach, raspberry, blackberry or citrus teas can also enhance the flavor of juice. Also try mixing lemon grass tea with tomato juice. Experiment. Other options include brewing a mixture of lemon grass and ginger tea (for extra bite); these plants grow in Bali and are also available in the traditional markets and grocery stores. The Javanese make a tea made out of lemon grass, ginger (jahe) and honey. When making sugar water, add pandan leaf while boiling (cheaper than using honey). Even thrifty and delightfully refreshing simple iced tea (sugar, tea bags, lemons, sprigs of mint) is seldom prepared nowadays, fallen out of favor over the past decade, replaced by a onslaught of soft drinks, commercial tea and juice blends. note: Buavita, at Rp19,000 per liter, made from real orange, apple, guava, soursop, mango, lychee, mandarin orange, guava, apple and mango fruit, is Indonesia’s best line of juices. English-only Bali radio stations: Save costs of money downloading and buying music by tuning in to Paradise FM (100.9 FM) radio which broadcasts music, news and information o n l y i n English. The station plays a lot of contemporary rock and oldies plus offers a regular service of English language news. Can also stream it online: http://www. Radio Plus (106.5 FM) is another, more tourist-oriented English language only radio station with news and information about entertainment, surfing and other adventure sports. Make your own landscaping pavers: Embellished pavers

(paping) and stepping stones, in all shapes, sizes and colors, are for sale all over Bali. But with prices at anywhere from Rp15,000 to Rp25,000 apiece it can really drive up the cost of even a small project. Instead, make your own concrete pavers with your own custom design from wooden molds or frames. Use Google Images to give you some ideas of the types and designs that you might use. For the pavers to be durable, the sides should be at least 30 cm thick. Choose a clear day. If you are making a large number of pavers, make more than one mold because it will take time for each paver to set. The mold should be completely open on the top and bottom and look like a perfectly square picture frame. Scoop the wet concrete into the paver mold and fill to the top. Level the concrete. Get air bubbles out by shaking the mold to release any trapped air. Once dry, just lift the mold off of your paver. Cover the filled mold with plastic to keep out dirt and insects. Place it in a shaded spot for at least 48 hours. If you want round pavers, cut 30-cm-wide loops from plastic trash cans, pails or big paint containers. The wonders of boreh: Body scrubs stimulate blood circulation, add natural minerals to the skin and create a fresh and relaxing feeling for both mind and body. Scrubs may include lulur (exfoliates the skin and gives it radiance), coconut (soothes and refreshes sensitive, sunburned skin), Bali coffee (invigorates the entire body). But the best value of all is boreh, a concoction made from fresh coconut oil, flowers, aromatic roots, cardamom, temulawak (wild ginger), benzoin, galangal, cloves, pepper, nutmeg, and kunyit (turmeric, for coloring) in any combination. When vigorously rubbed into the skin, boreh paste tingles and refreshes when you’re hot, gives your body surface deep warming heat after you’ve been out in the cold, increases body circulation and restore the balance of pH in the skin, leaving your skin smooth and supple. The most effective way to use boreh for body aches and pain is to apply the paste all over the skin and then be wrapped in a blanket for 15-20 minutes until the paste dries, enabling the heat to penetrate. In the villages of Bali, old farmers still use boreh to vanquish soreness and aching from muscles after a hard day’s work in the fields. Also used an as anti-itch and anti-rheumatism remedy. Buy boreh paste in the market (Rp2000 for a two tablespoon packet) or in your nearest kampung (look for an old ibu) at prices many times cheaper than the salves and ointments for sale in a pharmacy. Laundry tips: Save money and time ironing by using a fabric softener like Soklin or Molto Pewangi which can be bought in 1 liter bottles or in small packets for Rp1000. After washing with the softener, just take your laundry right off the line, fold the put straight into your drawers. To make your clothes smooth and smell flowery sweet, use Iron Spray “water” before ironing. On Bali two brands are sold at supermarkets and tokos for around Rp5,500 per 250 ml bottle: ‘Kispray’ or ‘Rapika.’ Only Rp2000 for refills. Green laundry detergents like 100% natural soap nuts are for sale at Ubud Farmers Market at Pizza Bagus every Saturday or call Aroma Bali Soapnuts, tel. 081-338-744-540 (Lo), hp 081-237-070 -03 (Faris). Little Tree (Jl. Sunset Road 112 X, tel. 0361-752-133) sells 100% biodegradable “Pure Green” laundry soap in 5 Kg plastic jugs for Rp193,600. Bargain Shop of the Month: Karang Kurnia, frequented only by domestic tourists, is far enough from the Kuta/Legan tourist shopping centers to offer unbelievable wholesale prices, especially for bedcovers (Rp160,000 to Rp180,000), elegant ring bracelets (only Rp5000), necklaces (Rp10,000), sturdy flip flops (Rp18,000-Rp20,000), handbags (Rp30,000-Rp60,000), women’s Hawaian-style dresses (Rp35,000-Rp40,000), beach sarongs (Rp20,000), beach sandals (Rp20,000), and other great deals on paintings, beach shorts, t-shirts, kids and adult clothing. This is the penny pincher’s place for oleh-oleh (gifts) to bring back home or to give to relatives or friends. Address: Karang Kurnia Souvenir Shop, Jl. Gatot Subroto Barat 99, Denpasar

(tel. 0361-8567545). Another location is at Jl. Cargo 99 (tel. 0361-921-2990), the street where the cargo trucks gather about a kilometer beyond Ubung station if heading west. Both outlets are open everyday 8 am-9 pm. Going away? Don’t even think about leaving your house unattended or poorly attended if you leave Bali for any length of time. Protect your most valuable investment. A dwelling in the tropics needs constant upkeep. If something’s broken, you have to jump right on it and fix it. Water needs to be flowing through all pipes to keep them unobstructed and electrical current needs to be running through wiring and appliances to keep them humming and discourage insect invasion. If you leave your car behind, jack it up and set it down on blocks so the rubber doesn’t degrade. Likewise, hang up bicycles so you don’t have to replace the tires. Wrap all electronics, appliances, books and paper goods in plastic or cardboard. Throw in some fresh pepper kernels to discourage insects. While you’re away, household staff should not give out any information as to your whereabouts, how long you’ll be gone or offer any personal information. Don’t tell villagers or neighbors you’re going on vacation or even if you’re going on a trip for a few days. Have your staff carry out their usual household routines - cutting the lawn, cleaning the windows, leaving lights on at night. Thieves are adept at identifying windows of opportunity, so this will indicate to anyone staking our your residence that you’re still at home. Tire buying tips: The tire center for all of Bali is Denpasar’s Jl. Imam Bonjol with the island’s biggest selections of tires. Bridgestone is the best tire made in Indonesia, but you pay for it at Rp475,000-Rp650,000 apiece (depending on size). Less expensive tire brands are Dunlop and Radial. The cheapest tires of all, at around Rp250,000 (depending on the size and condition) are retreads (roda bekas) sold at shops along the road. These used tire shops are also the best place to buy tire rims (pelek) for around Rp2.5 million to Rp3.6 million for a set of four (depending on the style, design and condition); it’s not necessary to buy new rims at a tire shop which can cost from Rp8 and up for set of f o u r. I f t h e band around the tire rim is d e n t e d , rendering it unusable, just take it to a welders (tukang las) and have it repaired for Rp150,000. After putting on the new tires, get a computer allignment (sporing dan balancing) for Rp150,000 so that your wheels last longer. Visually inspect your tires on a regular basis for cracks or cuts in sidewalls, bulges or blisters, uneven tread wear and excessively worn tread. As a tread-wear indicator, insert a 100 rupiah coin into a tire groove with the Garuda Eagle’s head toward the tire. If you can see the tip of the mythical bird’s wingtips, the tread is too worn. Excessive vibration is a sign that a wheel is unbalanced, misaligned or bent. Take note that underinflation affects a car’s handling which makes it harder to control, costs you more at the pump and causes heat to build up excessively which can shorten a tire’s life. To lessen heat build up, pump your tire full of nitrogen (Rp10,000 per tire), available only at tire shops.
