BEAUTY SECRETS ‘Om Swastiastu...’

Summer time has passed but it doesn’t mean that Bali is short on fun activities to do. In fact, you can spend this month taking a break from all of those parties to detox yourself. Taking care of your own health – inside and out – is essential. That’s why, in this edition we present you a number of activities that not only helps rejuvenate your body, mind and soul but also makes you one with nature. For a start, you can have some “me” time at The Beach Spa at Belmond Jimbaran Puri to have an Ayurveda treatment that will relax your muscles and mind after a long week at work. Find out more about it in our ‘INVITE & INDULGE’. Then, go to Ubud and indulge

in a healthy yet delicious meal with a view of greenery at Moksa Plant-Based Restaurant & Permaculture Garden – read in ‘DINE & DELIGHTS’ to reveal their food story. Once you have reenergized yourself with a spa treatment and healthy delights, it is time to be one with nature. A visit to the Kul Kul Farm will give you more insights on organic produce – we share our adventure at the farm in ‘LIFESTYLE & LEISURE’. Meanwhile, a stay experience at Plataran Menjangan Resort & Spa will also get you closer to Mother Earth as it is nestled within the West Bali National Park where wild deer often graze in their green spaces. Other adventures await you at the resort which you will discover in our ‘REST & RELAXATION’. From outside Bali, our contributor Marge shares her experience staying at Earthship, a self-sufficient, sustainable building in West Sumbawa, while Edna Tarigan scouts Jakarta for healthy drinks, food and organic produce in ‘BEYOND BALI’ and ‘CAPITAL CORNER’ respectively. All in all, we wish you good health and happy flipping through our pages!

f you have decided to live healthily and started to consume nutritious organic food, then you probably should know where your food actually came

from. As a healthy food enthusiast myself, I often wonder, “Are these foods really organic? How does a farmer run an organic field?” while indulging in my home cooking. So I was really excited when I came across the Kul Kul Farm on the internet, and without a second thought, I paid the farm a visit on a fine Monday. Located right next to Green School Bali in Ubud, Kul Kul Farm embraces a permaculture design system in farming. Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design that centers on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystem. But a visit to Kul Kul Farm gives so much more knowledge as we can see firsthand how a real farm is managed. Are you ready for farming? Come and join my adventure…

Moksa’s main courses are just as interesting with the Tempeh Ribs as one of the stars of the menu. The tempeh are cut in big sizes and marinated with homemade barbeque sauce before they are grilled to perfection. This dish is even more fulfilling with mashed sweet potatoes, mixed greens and grilled tomato on the side. The Chef’s Bowl is another surprise. The dish is rich with flavor as the curry rice, tofu, mixed greens and mushrooms are perfectly blend with eggplant rendang, kimchi and thinly sliced tempeh resembling bacon. The Farmer’s Triple Decker is also a unique choice as it presents Moksa’s interpretation of simple club sandwich. Using similar methods to making their taco shells, Moksa dries carrot dregs – which they collect from carrot juice – for about six hours and turn them into “bread” with a soft

Still, we had some room for truly a sweet closure to our culinary journey, comprised of a lemon pie, a mango tart, a jack berry cake and a chocolate coffee ice cream. Each component in their dessert is also homemade using natural sweets like honey and palm nectar without any use of dairy products, flour, or preservatives.

BB: You used to be a math teacher. What made you turn to the therapeutic world? FF: I had a neck injury in early 1987 and was told to have surgery. I was given anti-inflammatory drugs which totally upset my digestive system and caused vertigo. A friend took me to a chiropractor, and my neck responded quite positively to the chiropractic adjustments and massage. As a result, I became interested in massage, and after over 20 years of teaching high school math, I decided to go to a massage school. The funny thing was my daughter Frances Fuller.

INTO THE WILDERNESS The next morning, it was time for an adventure. Our day began with a full breakfast at The Octagon Ocean Club before we headed to the dock to hop on the Plataran Private Cruise to go snorkeling around Menjangan Island. The sun was shining bright and the ocean was pretty friendly. Soft drinks, mineral water and canapés were served on the Phinisi boat, while several daybeds were available for us to lie under the sun. Cruising couldn’t be better than this!

Sneak a peek of one of the villas.

It wasn’t long until we reached our destination, but before we left the private cruise, the captain gave a briefing and made sure that each of us wore life jackets. Then, we hopped on to a smaller boat to get to the snorkeling spot and finally jumped into the crystal clear ocean and swam to see Menjangan’s beautiful marine life. Aside from snorkeling, Plataran Menjangan Resort & Spa has other numerous adventurous activities, which our group experienced on our third day. Unlike the day before

FOTOFOLIO

BALI’S ANGELS Australian-based photographer Mark Thomas is a regular traveler to Indonesia, especially to the Island of the Gods. His photographic journey started with film cameras and a home darkroom in his youth. He subsequently enjoyed a corporate career that took him to travel the world extensively but at the same time limited his photographic pursuits. After retiring in 2014, Mark has been combining his love for photography and travel. His main interest is photographing people from different cultures around the world, using both formal portraiture and street photography styles. In this photo collection, Mark focuses on the beauty of Balinese women and embraces traditional clothing and makeup as well as carnival costumes at this year’s Bali Arts Festival opening parade – all of the images were taken with Hasselblad HV plus Zeiss 24-70 mm F2.8. He hopes that these images portray both the elegance and the vibrancy of Balinese culture. www.markthomasimages.com Instagram: @markthomasimages

The difference between Mason Jungle Buggies and other ATV operators is that other operators use the village road which is often blocked on special days for traditional ceremonies. This is not the case with Mason Jungle Buggies as they created their own track through the forest. “My father and I actually dug it all by ourselves using bobcats. We also walked through the forest to decide what features need to be added,” Jian explained how they built the customized track, including the safety points. The road is mostly soil with some layers of gravel added on the big turning section to give riders a sensational drifting experience once they give a deep revving thrust and splash dirt around. This is the ultimate driving experience that also tests your driving skills.

THE RIDE Before the ride starts, the five- to seven-minute safety briefing is the rule of thumb that should not be neglected.

After all is clear, each rider wears a helmet and their three point seatbelts are fastened. Then, there’s nothing else left than to hit the ignition button and the gas pedal. Surprisingly, the buggies are not blaring as loud as I thought they would be. The sound of the engine was more of a medium roar, resembling a prowling predator. The petrol-fueled engine gave a good thrust as soon as I hit the gas pedal on full throttle. The ride was super fun as I went through the dense tropical forest, waved to the local villagers, and saw an old man feeding his cows while roosters were roaming around the road. But the most fun was when I spin the wheel and drifted on soft gravel, blasting dirt to the buggy behind me. „ By Gino Andrias Mason Jungle Buggies Jalan Raya Taro, Banjar Tatag, Ubud (0361) 721-480 www.masonjunglebuggies.com

GREEN IN A BUN If you’re looking for a delicious healthy dish, Burgreens has the answer. Claimed as Jakarta’s first organic healthy plant-based eatery and catering business, this restaurant – which is located on the lower ground of Pacific Place in Sudirman – offers selections of signature veggie burgers. Opt for the Mini Trio that consists of three different burgers; the Mighty Mushroom, Battle Beans and Spinach Chickpeas. Though they are served in small sizes, they are still fulfilling. The Big Max Burger is also worth a try. Made of whole wheat buns with homemade raw vegan mayo, this burger comes with chips and vegan cream cheese. Aside from burgers, the restaurant also offers other healthy food, such as Crispy Tofu Salad, Raw Mushroom Noodles and Burgreens Matah Salad. Don’t forget to pair the dish with their refreshing drinks like coconut water or choose from the cold-pressed juices selection. Burgreens are also available at Union Yoga in Dharmawangsa and at Organik Klub in Tebet. Burgreens Pacific Place LG #18 Pacific Place, Jalan Jend. Sudirman Kav 52-53, South Jakarta (021) 5797-3815 www.burgreens.com Tiramisu, and more. Different flavors have different benefits for our health. For instance, the Happyella Ginger – which contains hibiscus and ginger – is wonderful to relax our mind and body. Meanwhile, the Watermelon Rose made from watermelon, rosemary and black pepper functions to rehydrate and energize. Need a glass of Happy Kombucha between your meeting schedules? Just head to the basement level of the Fairgrounds building. The cafe is actually a sanctuary in the middle of a busy area, making it the perfect place for you to catch your breath and sip some kombucha drink in the middle of the day.

Southeast Asia’s one and only surf film festival is back! Held at La Laguna in Canggu, the 9th Ombak Bali Festival showcases a number of films made by talents who are very much inspired by the motion of the ocean.

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.
