A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to

return to our hearts.

travels

The Bali You Have T

here is no doubt that most people have heard about Bali, the island of gods. With this island being in close proximity to Singapore, some have made it a frequent getaway. Main tourist spots such as Kuta, Seminyak, Legian, Jimbaran, Ubud and even the newer developments such as Nusa Dua, have become household names.

One can never be out of options in Bali, be it to witness a glorious sunset or be close to the greeneries; to get lost in the vibrant night life or simply relax with all the spa services. For those who love to hike, Mount Agung and Mount Batur will not be foreign names either. However, if you are willing to take the road less travelled, to a place that is almost unheard of even to the locals, you might want to consider Trunyan. The Mysterious Side of Bali Located at the north-eastern side of Bali, the Mount Batur caldera, which is also widely known as Kintamani, includes the villages of Kintamani, Batur, Toya Bungkah and Penelokan. Mount Batur is just a small volcano, but it is set in the heart of a huge crater with a diameter of 14km. Adjacent to it is the crescent-shaped Lake Batur, which is the largest crater lake in Bali and is a very

6

eMAG Apr - May 2013

good source of fish. The village of Trunyan is located at the foot of Mount Abang, an isolated area on the eastern shore of Lake Batur. The native Trunyanese are often referred to as Bali Aga (mountain Balinese) due to their conservative, pre-Hindu way of living. They are the descendants of the original Balinese who predate the arrival of the Hindu Majapahit Kingdom in the 16th century. Through the Bali Aga, we are able to go back a few centuries and peep into the culture of Bali before civilization kicked in. They still adopt the beliefs of their ancestors, whom they address as ‘Hyang’.


Never Seen There are two castes that exist amongst the Trunyan people: the Banjar Jero and the Banjar Jaba. Being descendants of the rulers, the Banjar Jero are the upper castes.. The descendants of the people who were ruled by the upper caste are the Banjar Jaba.

Bali Aga still practice a Neolithic way of life and are very introverted when it comes to external influences. They are pretty much self-sufficient and are very conscious in avoiding outside influences. Most of the villagers are fishermen or farmers who grow corn, onions and cabbages in plots near to the edge of the lake. The name “Trunyan” originated from two distinct words:“Taru”, which means tree and “Menyan”, which means nice smell. The Menyan Tree is the reason why this village is unique. The Truyanese believe that the tree has the ability to absorb unpleasant odours and convert them into fragrant smells. Because of this, Trunyanese do not cremate or bury their dead. After a ritual cleansing with rain water, the corpse is placed in a bamboo cage (ancak saji) and left to decompose naturally on the ground until only the skeleton remains. The skull is then placed on a stone altar. In Trunyan, there are 3 cemeteries: 1. For deaths due to natural causes, such as old age, sickness etc. This is the only one that is open for public viewing.

Text & Pictures: Donna Daritan

2. For deaths of children. 3. For deaths due to unnatural causes such as accidents, poisons, suicides, or even sickness that is deemed to be dangerous, etc.

Even though the villagers are well known to be aggressive towards tourists (by asking them for donations), that doesn’t stop people who are looking for a different experience from exploring this mysterious side of Bali. The amazing view of Mount Batur (Bali’s most active volcano) and deep blue lake is quite a rare treat with its scenic view and cool weather.

How to Get There

Trunyan village can be reached by boat in approximately 30-45 minutes (depending on the weather conditions) from a small harbor at Kedisan village. Visitors are advised to go there with a reputable tour company. It can be quite costly (+/- USD 100). However, do not be put off by the price because the experience is truly unique and magical. Alternatively, you can try bargaining directly with the small boat operators at the harbour but be aware that they have a tendency of not honouring agreed rates so buyers beware and exercise caution.

Teppanyaki Wagyu Beef

T

here are probably few beef lovers whose eyes would not light up at seeing Wagyu beef on the menu. At Kome, top quality Wagyu beef is lightly pan fried with little seasoning to allow beef aficionados to taste the meat’s natural flavours. The restaurant offers both Australian and Japanese Wagyu beef. For those who prefer Japanese beef, you are highly recommended to call and book in advance.

Stewed Rice Vermicelli with Seafood and Supreme Stock in Opeh Leaf

T

his dish uses transparent crystal rice vermicelli which is different from glass noodle and normal rice vermicelli in terms of texture and characteristics - it is firmer and excellent for absorbing flavours. This makes it perfect for this dish because the yellow stock which gives the dish its bright colour, is a rich stock made from a combination of chicken, duck, pork and vegetables. The vermicelli is wrapped in Opeh leaf and baked before serving to create another layer of fragrance.

Crispy Skin Roast Pork

C

rispy is an apt word for this dish indeed - the top layer of skin is so crispy that it resembles a crunchy snack. The chef has a special secret method of “exercising” the meat that leaves it tender after roasting and we concur. The amount of fat marbling is lean but just enough to create smoothness in every chew without leaving your mouth looking like an oily mirror. The dish is also not overly salty which makes it an easy dish to pop into one’s mouth.

Who?

Nook D.I.Y House of Pancake (www.nook.sg)

What?

The first of its kind in Singapore, Nook is a cosy pancake restaurant where you get to make your own pancakes with a customised griddle right at your table. Choose from a variety of homemade batter flavours and toppings and allow your creativity to flow into works of edible art. The side menu features a breakfast-themed selection of eggs cooked in various styles, toast, sandwiches and light meals.

Where?

Nook is located in the Bukit Timah area at 21 Lorong Kilat, #01-03, Singapore 598123. Opening hours are 12pm to 10pm between Tuesday to Friday, 10am to 10pm on Saturdays and 10am to 7pm on Sundays.

What’s the story?

A love for breakfast and pancakes was what led to the birth of Nook. The people behind the restaurant found ready-made pancake mixes lacking and set out to create fluffy pancakes of their own. After much experimentation, they found the right mix and raised the bar further by creating different flavours and colours. The website says: “We created Nook, a D.I.Y Pancake House where you get to design and flip your own pancakes! Stepping into our outlet, you would be greeted with colourful jars of pancake batter and squeezer bottles. 10

eMAG May - Jul 2013


Let your imagination run wild here with our yummy homemade pancakes batter.”

What’s the Ooh factor? This is one place where you are allowed to – and even encouraged to – play with your food and get away with it. Your artistic skills do not matter because the cooking process is fun and is great for times when you want to bond with loved ones over a few laughs and bites. The restaurant is popular with groups, especially students and families. Price Range?

A 1-flavour pancake set starts at $25 and a 2-flavour set will set you back $28. Both sets come with butter, maple syrup and 3 toppings of your choice.

How’s the food?

True to promise, the pancakes turned out pretty fluffy except for the first few tries when we kept them on the griddle for too long. We were told that this is a normal occurrence for most customers. The batter came served in squeeze bottles which did not look like a lot at first, but turned out to be really generous. We ordered

2 dual flavour sets and chose Original Buttermilk, Strawberry Farm, Asian Pandan and Dark Chocolate. The colours were bright and pretty but the flavours were more subtle. It got a little too much after a while and we did not manage to finish all our batter between 4 people. Nonetheless, the meal was fun and certainly created many opportunities for photos.

I

f your idea of fish porridge is a bland gruel consumed only when one is sick, a visit to Matang Seafood will change that. Located in an ordinary looking coffeeshop which one may easily miss while passing, Matang is a favorite where both local fans and admirers from Singapore flock to regularly for a generous pot of richly flavored fish porridge. Customers have the option of choosing what goes into their claypot of pork and seafood soup base. One can not only choose from 2 types of promfrets but also add in fish head, fish maw, mushrooms and even seafood such as prawns, crab, abalone and clams. If porridge is not your thing, you can also change the rice to noodles, vermicelli or kway teow. The result is a magnificent dish that will keep you going for seconds and thirds.

No. 91, Jalan Austin Height 3 Taman Mount Austin 81100 Johor Bahru Tel: 016- 761 8909

Prices start from RM20 for plain fish porridge and prices can go up to over RM50 depending on the number of ingredients added. Matang current has 2 outlets: 1 in Johor and the other in Taman Kaya. The outlets are crowded during weekends and they close on Mondays except public holidays.


Mishuji

Japanese Restaurant

L

ove all things Japanese and often find yourself lamenting over having to run to different restaurants to get your Japanese food fix? You probably will not have this problem with Mishuji Japanese Restaurant. The restaurant has a diverse menu that covers different aspects of Japanese cuisine starting with osunami (starters), sashimi, different varieties of sushi rolls, bento and donburi rice bowls, ramen and other noodles, agemono (fried dishes), nabe mono (hotpot), kushi yaki (grilled items) and teppanyaki.

足康 Yi Heng Foot Therapy & Reflexology

F

oot reflexology and massage spas are many aplenty in Johor Bahru but what we liked about Yi Heng was the clean and comfortable environment that we could relax in. Having opened only in September last year, the centre offers a host of massage and wellness treatments such as massages for various parts of the body, cupping, guasha, ear candling, scrubs and even pedicures. Prices are reasonable and start from RM30 for a 30-minute foot reflexology session.

People who love sushi bursting with different flavours will like the Mishuji Ferris - a colourful sushi roll made with cucumber and crab rolled inside rice and lined with seabass. An inhouse special mayonnaise sauce, fish roe and eel tops the creation. We enjoyed the Gindara Mentai Yaki which is grilled cod fish with cod fish roe. The fish was fresh and tender and the fish roe added a lovely twist to the otherwise plain tasting fish. We found Japanese diners in the restaurant during lunch, which is often further assurance on the food quality for non Japanese diners. The restaurant also offers Japanese liquor such as sake and choya . The existence of dividers between tables offers much privacy for quality time with friends, family and business associates. No. 107, Jalan Mutiara Emas 10/19 Taman Mount Austin 81100 Johor Bahru Tel: 011- 316 1030

To get better value for your dollar, take advantage of the many packages on offer. For example, a 1-hour foot reflexology and another hour of Chinese traditional massage will only set you back RM98 for 2 hours of bliss. Other options including longer sessions and aromatherapy massages are also available. The environment is quiet and relaxing, which is certainly a welcome treat for busy urbanites. The therapist who handled our writer’s foot reflexology session was friendly and sufficiently firm in applying pressure without causing her unease. She left Johor much lighter on her feet that day.

Kee Lin Vegetarian Food Curry Fish and Butter Frog may not be dishes one would expect on the menu of a vegetarian restaurant but they feature proudly in Kee Lin. In fact, the Butter Frog, which is made from fried mushroom with a savoury batter, tastes just like a plate of delicious fried chicken. Gone are the days where gluten was used heavily to produce mock versions of meat dishes. Kee Lin strives to be creative with their food by constantly innovating new dishes with high quality natural ingredients that do not lose out in taste.

With the increase in interest towards a vegetarian diet, Kee Lin sees a mix of customers from different races and walks of life. While the main branch in Skudai focuses more on Chinese-style vegetarian food, the new branch at Austin goes further by including East-meets-West creations and takes on a café-style approach that is more accessible to a ypunger audience. For those who are looking to host a vegetarian event, Kee Lin also offers banquets.

Pou Wok Restaurant Quality is revered over quantity at Pou Wok Restaurant. At first glance, the menu selection is noticeably smaller than most Chinese restaurants but the owners prefer to keep it that way. It is common to see some of their signature dishes on nearly every table and it isn’t because there isn’t anything else to eat –the food is good enough to keep customers coming back for more again and again. Throw the diet plan out of the window and indulge in the KL Hokkien Mee. The light and chewy texture of the handmade noodles is one of the best we have tasted and leaves one feeling much lighter than expected after ingesting a similar meal. The Fried Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg is invitingly fragrant and captivated the taste buds of our writer who isn’t a fan of the vegetable.

We were impressed with the tender texture of the Chef’s Delight Chicken Chop which was just right – not too tough, not too soft. Served with lattice fries and salad, the portion is generous. Another popular favourite is the Seafood Mushroom Noodle which uses preservative-free handmade noodles. The good news is: we hear the outlet will include a whole list of new dishes at the end of April.

efore the massage began, the masseuse asked me to fill out a questionnaire so that she could figure out the most suitable treatment for me. After analyzing my answers, the masseuse explained how the treatment would proceed. The room was comfortable with plenty of privacy. The temperature was also just right so I did not have to worry about freezing or sweating during the massage. The masseuse was attentive to details such by tucking in the blanket when necessary and allowed me to relax throughout the entire experience. The masseuse applied a good amount of pressure throughout the massage and the techniques used were very comfortable. During the massage, my masseuse felt and found all the problem areas that had plagued me for years. After the massage, I felt relaxed both in body and mind. It was a great experience at Tang Dynasty!
