PRESTIGIOUS ACHIEVEMENT Congratulations to the Swiss watch brand, Longines for receiving the Price “Revival” award at the 2017 Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Geneve. It was The Longines Avigation BigEye that won the hearts of the jury based on its assertive look, excellence, creativity and passion upon the watch industry.

BREAK THE CODE Located in Yan’s House Hotel in Kuta, the newly open Code Grafiti is ready to take diners on a whole different culinary journey. With Chef Bondan Yuliarso leading the kitchen team, the restaurant elevates traditional Balinese ingredients and crafts them into fine-dining quality dishes. Some of the menu items that the restaurant presents include scallop turmeric yuzu, crab meat with Kintamani soursop and basil glacier, yellow duck with red cabbage and mangoesteen, and cube roll massaman deconstruction. But the most unique from the savory dishes is the “Obat Nyamuk” where lime leaf and chili paste are created resembling an Indonesian traditional mosquito repellent. “The real Indonesian obat nyamuk (mosquito repellent) is usually placed on the floor. This dish symbolizes our vision in elevating traditional ingredients to high-quality dishes,” Chef Bondan stated. Another highlight is the chocolate shell with coconut mousse tarragon and salak puree for dessert, which is a show on its own as the chef does the plating right in front of diners.

the past. Trowulan is the national’s precious heritage to trace the history of the Majapahit Kingdom that was first discovered in 1815 by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles during the Dutch colonization. Raffles then assigned a Dutch named Wardenaar to do a deeper research about this site. His discovery was published in a book by Raffles titled “History of Java” in 1817. About a century later, a Dutch architect named Henri Maclaine Pont excavated a site in Trowulan. Pont tried to reconstruct the ancient

HEALTH&MEDICAL Call an ambulance by dialing 118, but it is a lot more practical and quicker to hire a taxi. Most hotels have on-call doctors on standby. For “Bali Belly”, Lomotil and Imodium eliminate symptoms, but not gastro-related infections. A fever along with symptoms requires doctor-prescribed antibiotics. Drink as much liquid as possible. Isotonic drinks under various brand names are widely available and are known to replenish body hydration and replace fluids. For discomfort, diarrhea and cramping, drink strong, hot tea; avoid fruits and spicy foods. Some day-biting mosquitoes carry dengue fever, but this is not a problem in tourist areas. Bali is non-malarial and prophylaxis is not required. Mosquito bites, cuts or abrasions easily become infected in the tropics. Treat them immediately. Drink only bottled or boiled water. Peel fruit before eating; avoid raw vegetables except at reputable restaurants. Ice in restaurants is safe. Protect yourself from the intense equatorial sun. Use high SPF sunblock and a hat. AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases are increasing in Indonesia. Local sex workers have multiple partners from around the world. They are not checked for sexually transmitted diseases. Act responsibly and use condoms, available over the counter at pharmacies.
