Only in Bangka Great food and beautiful beaches are signatures of Bangka. With everything your taste buds could ask for from casual family eateries, to walk-up roadside snacks to elegant world-class seafood, you’ll never run out new places to enjoy food in Bangka. One of the most popular culinary in Bangka is Lempah Kulat, which is a culinary made of ‘Kulat’ (mushroom/fungus) and usually is cooked with coconut milk. Kulat means Fungus or mushroom and Pelawan is a name of an endemic local tree. Since the special mushroom grows only during the rainy season and they are hard to find, they worth a lot. The price range of this unique mushroom varies between Rp1,500,000 ($150) and Rp 2,000,000 ($200) per kg, making it affordable only to the wealthy.

20 ******

In a blind tasting session, a French chef in Jakarta thought it as an expensive imported dried mushroom from France! You can tell the best quality of Kulat Pelawan by the stem. It should have a long stem that is intact all the way up to the sot cap. The locals use this mushroom for a special dish called “Lempah Kulat Pelawan”—which is kind of similar to mushroom curry—using ‘kampung chicken’ trimmings from the wing or feet for the stock, making the dish the best curry in Indonesia!

22 ******

SMILE! Indonesians are friendly people, and it is true. There may be times when you feel mad or pissed here such as in traffic situations. Remember, no matter what happens, remain calm and friendly. And smile to get things done or apologize. It’s our lucky charm!

YOUR RIGHT HAND The next most important thing to remember is the use of your right hand. Whatever you do in public, never use your left hand to accept or to give something. The left hand is considered ‘dirty’ or ‘inappropriate’. The culture has been there for ages now and there’s no harm for you to remember and follow when you’re here.

****** 23

BARE FOOT AND COOL FLOORS Most Indonesians including Bangka people take our shoes or sandals off before entering a house. That makes perfect sense, because going barefoot on the cool floor tiles is far more comfy in a tropical climate than harassing your feet with shoes and socks. At home most families prefer to sit on mats on the floor. That’s how we relax, watch TV, chat with friends, eat and drink and sometimes even sleep. Well, not all of us are like that, but most of us do, so don’t be surprised when you see it yourself! However, when you are invited to the local’s house, you will likely be welcomed in the guest room where you can sit on chairs (but with bare feet).

24 ******

“HELLO MISTER!” Interacting with Indonesians is very easy. You will soon find out that most Indonesians, no matter the age, class or education are interested in getting to know you, foreign visitors! Indonesians are talkative and friendly, they also like to ask many questions when they feel comfy talking to you. Some of the questions may considered ‘taboo’ or nothing of our business, but don’t get offended and remember it’s only a sign that they are starting to like you, that’s why they feel like they want to know more about you. (cont.)

****** 25

(cont.) Some of the questions may even sound rude to you, but iIf you don’t feel like sharing any information with strangers, then you can politely say “I’m sorry but I’m not ready to talk about these things yet” and change the topic immediately to not make them feel guilty or embarrassed. Others may ask your opinion on the economic or political situation as well, such as in Indonesia, your country or the world. So it doesn’t always have to be something personal. To get your attention, they tend to call “Hello Mister!”. ‘Hello Mister’ is also used to address women as well; if you respond then a bright smile will be yours.

26 ******

BASA BASI It won’t be long before someone invites you to come over. Addresses and telephone numbers are exchanged. Then, when you show up, you may be embarrassed to know that the hosts apparently had forgotten about the appointment. In Indonesia the ritual of inviting is known as ‘basa-

basi’. It translates best with small talk and nobody expects that you really come. It takes some time to understand if an invitation is

basa-basi it’s real. Likewise, if you invite people, make sure that the intended guests understand that you are serious about the invitation. The best way to avoid confusing situations is to call your other local friend and ask for their help.

Now that you know a bit about the culture, let us pull you a bit closer to locals in Bangka. Perhaps when you take a walk along the road in Bangka, and you see several ceremonies or festivals, you won’t be wondering what they’re doing and why they’re doing it.

****** 27

‘Rebo Kasan’ Ceremony For repelling any unluckiness, the locals believe in the ritual called “Rebo Kasan”. It’s held every last Wednesday (Shafar), in Air Anyer Village. Rebo Kasan comes from the words Rebo Kasan which means the last Wednesday in Shafar. It’s been known since the 16th century and is now being celebrated by today’s generation. The locals are still doing the tradition until now, but several changes have been made. They start the ritual around 9 o’clock, which is the same time as Azan. Even though the ritual is done in front of the mosque and is using prayers, you still can feel the mys-

Sepintu Sedulang Tradition The locals care for each other. As a proof that they unite as one, there’s a tradition called “nganggung” or Sepintu Sedulang which happens to be the same as their motto. Sepintu sedulang means ‘to unite as one’. Whenever they’re celebrating something (during the harvest season, wedding ceremony, and even funeral) they would treat the invited guests (without necessarily knowing the persons) with a huge tray filled with food. Nobody worries that they will run out of food, because they have prepared lots and lots of tray filled with delicious meal! You can also go there and they will treat you well even though they never met you before!

****** 29

Maulid Nabi Ceremony Indonesia is the most Muslim populated country in the world, we still honor and respect any other religions though. Maulid Nabi Ceremony is when Indonesians celebrating the birth of Nabi Muhammad SAW. It’s been celebrated for generations, in some places such as Keritak Village, Zed, Simpang Katis, Sinar Baru, Kemuja, it’s even more glorious than Eid al-Fitr.

If you are invited to one of the locals’ house on this sacred day, don’t forget to dress up politely and you will feel the warmth and joy as you are certainly welcomed.

Belimau Bathing Ramadhan is a special month for the Moslems; it is the month when the locals have to repent and hope the safety and blessing. One of the traditions is cleaning themselves before entering the holy month of Ramadhan by doing Mandi Belimau or Belimau Bathing. The locals believe that by holding this ceremony, their fasting will be smoothly done and all they want can be reached. There are also some people who do this ceremony because they simply hope for wealth, cleverness, partner of life, etc. And this tradition has been existed for about 300 years ago.

Bangka Chinese Spring Festival is one of the biggest celebrations in Indonesia. One thing that is so beautiful about Bangka Island is the diversity of cultures. They respect each other no matter the religion, culture and race. They celebrate diversity! The celebration was traditionally highlighted with a religious ceremony given in honor of Heaven and Earth, the gods of the household and the family ancestors. You maybe are wondering why Chinese New Year falls on different date each year. The Chinese calendar is based on a combination of lunar and solar movements. The lunar cycle is about 29.5 days. In order to catch up with the solar calendar the Chinese insert an extra month once every few years (seven years out of a 19-yearcycle). The celebration lasts for 15 days. You are so welcome to join and be apart of the celebration during Chinese New Year .


Sembahyang Kubur (Chinese Grave Prayer Ritual) As you know, Chinese have great respect for our ancestors, so there’s a tradition where we go to ancestors’ graves and pray for them. It’s twice a year, in the 3rd and 7th month in lunar calendar. You will smell the scent of incense over there, as it’s one of the tools they use to pray. Some people also pray for wealth, health and luckiness. They also prepare some real food in front of the grave, with the faith it will be eaten by the spirits. All the food later will be brought back home to be eaten by the whole family.

Sun Go Kong You may probably heard of The Monkey King (Sun Go Kong), a main character in the classical Chinese epic novel “Journey to the West” written by Wu Cheng’en.

The locals cerebrate the birth of Sun Go Kong by doing a ritual that has been done for ages. Sun Go Kong actually symbolizes strength, power and health. Sun Go Kong also is believed can guard the village from evil spirits and bad luck.

34 ******

Sembahyang Rebut You can conclude by reading any other rituals above, that Chinese really believe in spirits, both good and bad. On the 15th in the 7th month in Lunar calendar, they believe that the gate between life and death is opened, letting all spirits go into our world. To avoid being disturbed by the presence of evil spirits, they have to “send” something useful to them through papers-formed stuffs such as money, clothing, and any other stuffs that will eventually be burned. “Rebut ritual” will be held in every temples in Bangka island, so if you wanna come and join, feel free to do so.

For women travelers out there, tampons are not generally used by the local people, so it could be difficult for you to find one especially when you are going to travel in some remote areas or as the backpackers. It would be the same if you are used to use specific cosmetics or other toiletries. Bring the good sunscreen for your face. You will never find any napkin machines in any toilets in Bangka like in other countries, even for the toilet paper most of the times. Bring bras if you are going to wear the tight tops. Whenever you go out, bring mineral water, a pack of tissue/ Kleenex, hand sanitizer and umbrella if you cannot tolerate the heat..

****** 39

Tips before you fly:  You may not pack liquid or gel substances in your carry-on unless they are in individual containers of 3.4 ounces or less enclosed in one clear, quart-size, plastic, zip-top bag per passenger. Any larger containers of liquids and gels must be packed in your checked luggage. For more information, you can ask Mr.Google about Airport Security.  Be aware of restrictions on the size and number of bags you may bring onto your flight. Many airlines now charge a fee for every checked bag or have lowered the maximum permitted weight limits for checked luggage. For a clear overview of what the airlines are charging for checked bags these days and how large and heavy your luggage is allowed to be, read Airline Baggage Fees on your airline’s web! 40******

(cont.):   Do not lock your checked bags except with TSAapproved locks; otherwise, if your bag is selected for random screening, agents will have to break the lock to get inside. Do not over pack your bag. Screeners will have a difficult time closing your luggage if selected for inspection, which will only lead to wrinkles and the potential for lost articles.   Carry all film with you onboard, as screening equipment for checked luggage can damage undeveloped film.  Place any packed belongings you don’t feel comfortable with strangers handling in clear plastic bags. Do not stack books and other documents on top of each other; instead, spread them out throughout your bag.

Moving around You won’t see a lot of public transportation here in Bangka. Most of the locals have their own vehicles. If you wanna look around town, it’s either you’re on tour or spending some money to rent cars or bikes. No need to worry about the price. They’re not too expensive. Here let us give you some information about renting ‘em.

Rental Motor Time to go for a ride! Exploring the undiscovered places on your bike and why not? It’s gonna be so cool to feel the wind against your face, to be the king of the road! It’s very cheap and easy to use. Bangka is not like Jakarta, so you don’t need to worry about the traffic! But do prepare your driving license whenever you decide to hit the road. And put on your helmet for your own safety. And watch out the speed limit, in shorter words, always be careful whenever you wanna go for a ride.
