TEAMTALK

TRENDING TOPICS ‘Om Swastiastu...’ Bali without a doubt sets a high standard in trends for Indonesia’s tourism industry. From high quality food to world-class venues, Bali is always attracting curious tourists who want to keep themselves updated with everything that is happening on the island. Therefore, this month we put you in touch with those that have become the talk of the island. One highly trending topic is healthy food, which all began in Ubud. Raw food is no longer an exceptional thing in Bali thanks to the dedication of health-conscious eaters that spread their positive message to the rest of the island. But did you know that it is not actually that hard to enjoy this healthy lifestyle? Our interview with Shanti Allen, one of the

pioneers of raw food in Ubud and the owner of Alchemy Café, in ‘PROFILE & PORTRAIT’ just might inspire you. Beach clubs are something that Bali is famous for – so in ‘LIFESTYLE & LEISURE’ we introduce you to five beach clubs in Bali that set the bar very high, all handpicked by our contributor Paul V. Walters. Your holiday won’t be complete if you haven’t witnessed Bali’s renowned sunrises and sunsets – find some stunning photos of these moments captured by Phil Green in ‘FOTO FOLIO’. We also reveal some tourist destinations beyond Bali that are currently trending like the Pasar Santa in Jakarta. Flip through ‘CAPITAL CORNER’ to find out how an old market has turned into the “it” place in the capital city. Our contributor Agi R. Andante paid a visit to the trending Kalibiru in Yogyakarta on her road trip from Bali to Jakarta, which she tells us about in ‘BEYOND BALI’. As always, we hope you enjoy flipping through our pages and having a happy time exploring the island. And don’t forget to snap some holiday photos and upload them to your social media account.

Seminyak may have just been open for a year, but this restaurant has made its way right into the dining competition of southern Bali for sure, especially when it comes to meat. Their Beef Tenderloin Fillet is a musttry – the thick 200-gram grain-fed Black Angus tenderloin is cooked to perfection, and is served with “Basil” Salsa Verde and Balsamic sauce. And the meat quality doesn’t lie. This restaurant is designed with a glamorous ‘20s-style interior, making it a stunning place for a romantic dinner as well.

BRISKET Brisket supports about 60% of the body weight of a cow so is obviously one of the muscle areas that require a significant amount of connective tissue. This makes it challenging to process, as it needs a certain technique to cook and to tenderize the connective tissues. However, beef brisket is also considered the king of Texan BBQ meat. Slow smoked for 15 hours, this tough meat will transform into a succulent cut that is so tender it almost melts in your mouth. Tempted? Just head out to the Smokehouse in Petitenget. This casual BBQ joint is owned by a Texan – and who better qualified to offer Texas-style BBQ than a Texan?

BB: What are some tips for those who are striving to live a healthier life? S: The secret to success can be found in your daily routine. Improve the things you do on a daily basis to create lifelong habits that support health and longevity. Once you have a healthy and steady baseline, there is no need for guilt if you loosen up on special occasions. As for those who want to increase their raw food intake, I recommend starting by replacing your standard breakfast with a raw version. Another suggestion is to replace just one meal per day with a salad. Don´t set the bar too high. Like all sustainable habits, it should be realistic and effortless.

CASHEW CREAM ‘CHEESE’ Shanti Allen shares this easy recipe just for you. “It´s a great dip to replace cheese, and something anyone can appreciate,” she says. “You can serve it with crispy assorted vegetables such as baby carrots, radishes, and asparagus, or spread it on crackers. Garnish with fresh herbs and edible flowers for a little extra love.” 2 ½ cups cashews, soaked in water for 1-4 hours. Discard the water. 2 tablespoon white miso. 2 tablespoon lemon juice. 1 teaspoon salt. 1 cup water. 2 cloves garlic, crushed.

Just remember, every bite is a creation of yourself, an opportunity to taste the magic of nature, and an invitation to become your best self. Fall in love with self-care while nourishing your body, mind and spirit.

Drain and rinse the cashew nuts. Combine all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. Add a tad bit more water if necessary to make blending easier.

BALI&BEYOND SEPTEMBER 2015


It doesn’t matter how far or near your destination is, safety is number one. You may be on the right track, but someone else on the road might break the rules and (knock on wood) hit you. We never know, right? Oh, did I mention that some drivers do not think twice about jumping up on the sidewalk to get around traffic? Again, this bad local habit is often imitated by tourists. But as tempting as it may seem, taking over the sidewalk from pedestrians is never cool. The pedestrians are struggling enough while watching where their feet are going due to lack of decent sidewalks. So you lost a couple of minutes because of traffic – I think that’s better than injuring someone (or yourself) as you jump on and off the sidewalk to avoid the traffic jams. More bad news is that the road is not any friendlier if you’re driving a car. Pedestrians cross the street anytime anywhere, as there are no pedestrian bridges on the island. They can cross the street at the intersection, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only place. And those bikers that suddenly appear out of nowhere as you’re changing lanes or making a turn only makes things worse. Now take a breath, because it is not always that bad. Car and bike accidents happen everywhere in the world, but this is Bali and you’re here to get away from stress, so ending up in the hospital or dealing with the locals due to an incident is definitely the last thing you want to be doing. So wherever you go, make sure that you have everything you need for safety – helmets for bikers, seatbelts for cars, and of course, be sure that you have all the documentation like an international drivers license and the vehicle registration with you. And no matter how empty the road is, resist the urge to go speeding, because like I mentioned before, pedestrians and bikers can surprise you at any time. And whenever you feel that the traffic is eating you alive, take one or two deep breaths. Nothing compares to being patient and getting to your destination safe and sound, doesn’t it? So, watch the road and drive safe! „ By Rania Nareswati

FOTOFOLIO

SUNRISE, SUNDOWN

It was more than 60 years ago when India’s Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru famously branded Bali as ‘The Morning of the World’ while walking along Sanur Beach with President Soekarno. To see Bali’s most beautiful landscapes at their very best requires catching the morning light at sunrise when the air is cool and clear and the light has a crystal quality before the heat and haze of the day takes over. Sunrise views from any of Bali’s beaches with an easterly aspect can be stunning – the most handy and famous are the Sanur and the Sindhu beach areas. However, the ultimate Bali sunrise is best viewed from the peak of a volcano or mountain with views east to Lombok. Trekking to the peak of Mount Agung is the most challenging, involving a steep four-hour climb starting at 1 or 2 a.m. The views to Lombok and back towards western Bali and Java are stunning, and the colors of the sunrise take on unreal and deep hues, but this is a difficult climb! Trekking Mount Batur in Kintamani is also a great adventure. It isn’t as demanding as Mount Agung, but the views and sunrise are just as spectacular. Other spots around Kintamani are also amazing such as the Mount Abang trek and the Pinggan Hill road, which has recently become very popular among photographers. Great mountain sunrises can also be caught from Bedugul on the southern side, with breathtaking easterly views across the island to Mount Agung and Mount Abang. Sunsets are best viewed from any west facing beach and even better if from a famous temple such as Tanah Lot and Uluwatu. My favorite spot to catch a sunset is simply from a beanbag on one of the many wide beaches in Seminyak. The light can be very spectacular reflecting from the wet sand, providing dramatic mirror effects. So while in Bali, make the effort to catch its sunrises and sunsets and you won’t be disappointed! My shortlist of favorites are the Mount Batur volcano trek for sunrise, Uluwatu and Tanah lot for sunset, and chilling out on Seminyak Beach watching the light show as the sun recedes below the waves.

We were two girls on the road, so it was important for us to set the GPS, bring emergency equipment, and prepare some ‘weapons’ for our safety – we brought two cans of pepper spray just in case. After getting a cup of coffee from our favorite coffee shop in Seminyak, we drove for three hours to the Gilimanuk seaport to catch the ferry to Java. Crossing the strait cost us Rp. 148,000 for two persons and our small sized car. In less than an hour we touched land again at the Ketapang seaport in Banyuwangi, East Java. And that’s where our road trip in Java began.

There are a lot of beaches we would have liked to visit in the Banyuwangi area, but as we only stayed for a night we just went to Red Island (Pulau Merah) Beach in the morning. Red Island is a small island across the beach in the Sumber Agung village, and, as you may have already guessed, it is named after the color that it changes to during the sunset.

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.
