Next stop Ramadhan. Things will be winding down over the next week or so as Muslim people around the world and right here in Jakarta begin to look forward to the month-long fasting period before Idul Fitri heralds in another new Islamic year. During Ramadhan most bars and clubs will be closed unless they are in large hotels and dining outlets will be open in shopping malls. If you think about it, there are a few of them around. So all is not lost for the non-practising folk around town, but don’t expect it to be pumping too much. It’s a good time to enjoy the peace in any case. Before Ramadhan begins, we have a little bit more entertainment on offer to enjoy. The Jakarta Fair is still supplying lots of local recording artists and bands to entertain the masses just about every night till Sunday July 15. That is well worth a look for some local flavours and sounds. Watch out for the RnB Summer Parade Summer Break at Atlantis Water Adventure – Ancol Jakarta on Saturday July 14 with RnB artists from all over the region. Also on the same night you could try the Cornetto Summer Ice Cream Festival at Stadion Renang Senayan which consists of international and national live bands and DJs. Sebastian Krieg and Daniel Portman will be taking over the decks at Illigals also on the same night, which shouldn’t be missed by any electronic music loving punter out there. You can see all the events that are happening over the next two weeks in the What’s On and HereNow sections inside. Have fun while you can and we’ll see you next week when we are in the heart of Ramadhan and the fasting month.

Consisting of four songs, the record is in vinyl format and limited: only 200 pieces have been pressed. Recorded in Antida Studio, Bali, this album is their third collection. Their debut album, Beranda Taman Hati, was distributed in 2008 and received warm responses. The second, Album #2, released in 2010, has made their reputation as the ballad masters even stronger. Now with this latest recording, the trio (Dadang, Zio and Deny) invited a few brilliant musicians to participate as well, including Kartika Jahja (vocal), Riza Arshad (accordion), Angelo Berardi (violin), and Windu Estianto (piano).

Ini adalah komposisi mereka yang nomer tiga. Sebelumnya pada 2008 trio yang kini beranggotakan Dadang SH Pranoto (biduan, gitar), Brozio Orah (bas, vokal latar), serta Deny Surya (drum) ini merilis karya perdananya, Beranda Taman Hati, yang melejitkan beberapa tembang caffeine-blues nan romantis lagi elegan yang digemari anak muda macam “Pagi”, “Renovasi Otak”, “Hatihati di Jalan”, dan lain-lain yang berkisah soal rasa rindu, sahabat, bumi, pula keajaibankeajaiban mungil yang kerap luput dari ingatan. Berlanjut kemudian dengan Album #2 yang banyak bertutur mengenai sikap mawas diri serta apresiasi kepada Tuhan, cinta, semesta dan sesama manusia. Yang istimewa, gubahan keluaran 2010 ini disisipi gimmick menarik: sampul album bisa dipilih sendiri sesuai selera pembeli, tersedia dalam 6 versi. Menurut sang biang keladi, Dadang alias Pohon Tua, dibanding yang sudah-sudah album paling gresnya ini diistilahkannya sebagai beyond imagination, niscaya digdaya melampaui harapan seliar apa pun yang ada di kepala. “Terasa seperti lompatan jaman. Jauh, jauh sekali melampaui pencapaian kedua album sebelumnya. Lengkung Langit kembali menyodorkan pengalaman indera bunyi, rasa dan jiwa yang pasti akan membuat mulut menganga,” tegas pria bergaya urban bohemian yang dikenal pula sebagai Dankie kala bersama Navicula ini dengan wibawa terjaga.

Yang patut dicatat kenapa kehadiran Lengkung Langit merupakan sebuah peristiwa signifikan dalam skena musik Indonesia adalah rilisannya dalam format piringan hitam, sebuah langkah yang masih terbilang jarang ditempuh oleh musisi lokal masa kini. Serta dicetak amat terbatas. Nah, jika kalian menyebut diri sebagai penyuka berat Dialog Dini Hari alias Sahabat Pagi, silakan dapatkan album tersebut serta simak kabar termutakhir mereka lewat

Dikerjakan di studio rekaman yang sering disebut sebagai salah satu yang terbaik di Bali, Antida, 4 tembang yang terserak di gubahan ketiga ini menghadirkan rentetan bintang tamu berkelas macam Kartika Jahja (vokal), Rizal Arshad (akordion), Angelo Berardi (biola), dan Windu Estianto (piano).

And the

Livin’ is


The big smoke takes a break in July, or does it?


he more astute among you will immediately recognise that the title of this article is the second line of the immortal song Summertime by George and Ira Gershwin, which appears in the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess.

f e a t u r e


If anything captures the lazy, hazy, languid days of summer, this must surely be it. Here in Jakarta, which lies just south of the equator, midsummer is technically around December-January, but no matter: Now is the time of the long school holidays, while the fashion world releases its spring/summer collections in time for April/May and the months that follow. In the capital, one immediate benefit of the school break is a noticeable reduction in traffic congestion, particularly during the morning peak. The downside can be felt in Bali: Those of you who manage a getaway to the so-called island of the gods will find yourself caught in Jakarta-like traffic jams that seem to consist entirely of vehicles with Jakarta or Surabaya registration plates... Euro and Wimbledon 2012 have just finished, and what a glorious soccer and tennis opening they provided to this summer’s feast of sport. The Olympics are just around the corner, so put your feet up as you enjoy the best in the world striving to be faster, stronger or higher than their rivals. Alternatively, you could take to the shops in search of bargains in the Great Jakarta Sale, with many participating venues opening until midnight on certain days to tempt even the most resistant of shoppers when the city’s roads are relatively traffic-free. But wait... this year, candidates for the governorship of the capital city are hard at work campaigning for the support of the Jakarta electorate. The rallies are a mix of political theatre and all the fun of the fair but inevitably produce localised traffic chaos around the chosen venues. It goes without saying that the “day of rest” seems to be targeted for the biggest rallies ... If you do remain in the capital, make the most of the relatively quieter days during the week for it will not be long before the new school term begins and the traffic will be back to “normal”. But let’s worry about that later. A couplet from another summertime song immortalised by Nat ‘King’ Cole encapsulates what the current season is all about: And on the beach you’ll see the girls in their bikinis As cute as ever but they never get ‘em wet ...

My dear fellows, welcome once again! Follow me as we traipse into the never never land that is the big durian, the playground that is Jakarta.

f e a t u r e


Oh Walter, I mean really, if you do need to relieve yourself then do so, but watch the shoes. Now where was I... Ah yes the joys of this paradise, this incredible... What is it Walter? What’s that you say? You’ve heard of a place? Well go on then. Red Square? Ah... “Selera bule” indeed... My God, Walter stop running! That’s not a real Bluebird!!!


elcome my friends to Red Square! What a place it is, the first and only leading purveyor of vodka in this maiden city - a drink of tsars and schleppers alike.

Witness the long illuminated bar. For you see, Red Square does not in fact have a dance floor - it is, after all, a bar. You don’t often dance in a bar, I hear you say? Well, try dancing on one bwahahaha! I’m sure there will soon be - why here they come now! A bevy of exotic beauties, jiggling their tail feathers as they pound the bar top.

f e a t u r e


Watch their mating call. See how this majestic figure of a man pounces on the bar top, pursuing these magnificent gazelles as they shimmy around him, eluding his every grasp. Let us leave him and instead find one who has found success. This gentleman appears to have done well. Excuse me sir, tell us, how long have you been with this beautiful young woman? Three days? You met online you say? What’s that? Well she certainly wouldn’t be allowed to work in a law firm dressed like that. Bwahahaha! Don’t worry my good man, you don’t look a day over 60. Good Lord what is that tugging... Ah, of course, the corner table, with a lovely view outside. Look at that man there, blissfully passed out in his own exertions. This table, my friends, is known

as the vortex. An unknown force tugs at ones heartstrings, leads hands to wallets and results in bottles and beauties in equal measure! Please excuse me, I find at times like this, addressing you all whilst standing atop a table and swinging my drink in the air, a most appropriate pose under the circumstances. So there you have it gentlemen, ‘tis indeed time to par-tay! I can see you’re ready to begin, to imbibe the beautiful poison, dance like a chicken and pursue these lovely creatures. Go my fellows, be free and enjoy Red Square - Jakarta’s playground with a subtle mix of North and South Jakarta for the wise and mature gentleman who wishes to let loose and rediscover his misspent youth. Except you Walter, I think we’ll have to find you somewhere more er... Ethnic. What’s that you say? Stadium? Good heavens me, is it really that time? Men, gather round, stomachs in and tighten your belts. To the Bluebirds one and all! Maybe the best is yet to come! [A Non]

For this is Red Square’s secret - these fine young womenfolk are here to unwind, to drink, to make merry, to laugh and... Yes indeed, to meet well heeled and gorgeous western male specimens like you!

Carrot Academy

f e a t u r e



he name Carrot Academy may sound like a particularly whimsical college from cartoon land somewhere, but this school of illustration is making a name for itself through the sheer quality of its students’ creations. From illustrations that rival the best of US, European, and Japanese comics, to those that would not look out of place in world class advertising campaigns; the academy has many local artists across the country hoping to take part in the phenomenon. The only thing is; this academy may yet be too small to hold the many interests heading its way. Geared towards creating students with marketable art skills, the academy’s aim to reposition design school alumnus as an intrinsic part of big business seems to have paid off. Although the school’s rather blunt commercialization of artistic expertise may tick off art purists, Carrot Academy’s founder Putra Adi Setiyawan stands by his conviction that this is what it takes to amplify the prestige and, more importantly, the tangible value of someone – anyone – who says they want to draw for life. Many of Carrot’s students have gone on to work

in the commercial field, particularly in a variety of marketing and advertising campaigns. Located in a modest looking residential-houseturned-school in the Kayu Putih area of East Jakarta, the academy was established in December of 2008. And though it managed to gradually build its reputation through word of mouth between the country’s numerous art communities online, it wasn’t until last year that it began building an almost cultish following. By early 2012, the privately owned school’s four part-time teachers were positively struggling to contain the excitement; being able to only host a limited number of students and having to turn down countless prospective disciples. The limit means that there are currently only around 100 students able to enroll. This was simply a natural by product of the academy’s students’ obvious abilities. Though there are myriad other illustration schools around the country, they have mostly been focused on a specific style; lacking the agility of Carrot’s students. According to Putra, by doing so, most Indonesian illustration schools inadvertently limit their students’ real world prospects; perpetually

demoting the art of drawing into mere hobby and robbing it of its own potential worth. For Putra, the school sets out to disprove the notion that the best case scenario for Indonesian illustrators is to be a comic drawer. “Illustration should mean you can draw anything in any format,” the 31-year old says. “We’re trying to show that there is plenty of work an artist is able to do in the real world.” He cites examples such as working in the design department of companies to being a recognized tattoo artist or custom motorcycle painter. This commitment of “opening people’s eyes” towards the endless possibilities available for illustrators is encapsulated in the academy’s Vitamin-A-filled, eye-benefitting fruit, moniker. “What are important in being a good illustrator are two things: a good perception and passion,” Putra says. He explains that “good perception” refers to understanding the doors opened through good illustration skills, while passion is having the energy of objectively understanding the aim of having drawing abilities. “One of my students discovered that his true passion was in accounting after he enrolled, so

he was able to objectively see what he wanted to do with his drawing skills. That goes back to our aim of opening their perception,” he adds. Another “myth” Putra sets out to dispel is the notion that some people are naturally more talented than others in their artistic abilities. He is certain, through his own belief that he himself was far from naturally “talented,” that every one of his students has the same chance to draw an awe-inspiring drawing. Putra is equally appalled at the Manga, or Japanese comic, orientation of many wannabe illustrators. “We’ve got to be rid of this habit of local illustrators running with excuses like ‘I’m only able to draw Manga-style’ or ‘I’m just not a whiz,’ before trying their utter best,” he says. A former musician who spent many nights playing everything from Top 40 tunes to heavy metal burners around the city’s cafes, Putra moved to the Jakarta from Temanggung, a small regency in Central Java. Though he managed to survive through paying gigs and paid songwriting, constantly meeting and conversing with friends who were heavily into drawing both

f e a t u r e


f e a t u r e


professionally and as a hobby. This eventually led him into digging through his childhood and teen-years comics, mostly culled from the Manga style. Unsatisfied with the uncreative stiffness of local art studies, Putra dropped out of his Visual Communication Design studies in Interstudy University and began to seriously ponder the possibility of opening up his own school – the kind where people would actually grow into better artists. He was particularly inspired by Singapore’s IFS (Imaginary Friends Studio), an art studio who, according to Putra has “80% of its students from Indonesia.” “They were extremely flexible in what they could illustrate,” he adds. Along with some friends, Putra says he “gambled” away his savings to rent the house in Cikini. To start things off, Putra and his entourage also became part time tutors at the academy, though the early days were anything but smooth sailing. “We had OBs (Office Boys) quitting all time and stealing our equipment; we had the early tutors quitting right away after Carrot was established to work in better jobs; and worse, we had a former security guy completely rob us blind one day, stealing almost all of our equipment including computers,” Putra explains. “It was far more challenging than I thought it would be.”

Putra trudged on, recruiting a few new tutors, rounding up to the current 4 (including himself), all of whom still work other jobs to survive. It isn’t clear why Carrot’s students are able to churn out such quality illustrations; but it’s very likely it has a lot to do with Putra, whose ability to work within both the “analog” and digital illustration realm gives him, and his school, an edge. Samudra Utama, a Carrot student, says that the skills he learned from the academy are immense. “I learned how to digitally edit the images in a way that I never did in other schools, though I can’t really explain it. It was just different and more powerful,” he says. “Maybe it was the closeness we felt with the tutors, like they weren’t teachers but buddies you could hang out with.” Another student, Banu Satrio says that Carrot’s strength seems to be in its balanced ability to teach everything from “traditional to digital art.” As for the academy’s characteristic strength in digital manipulation, Putra says that it is again another way to prepare the students towards the way they need to work in the real world. “They have to be digitally prepared. Right now, everything is digitized, including communications with the clients. These days, for illustrators, the laptop is their studio.” [Marcel Thee]

hot chip

In Our Heads ack in the early naughties Hot Chip burst onto the scene with a very particular sound. Like their contemporary James Murphy and other DFA-associated acts, their early albums inspired brooding, snarkiness, and dancing in equal measures, and were a mixture of quirky production, indie kid attitude, and infectious funk. Underneath Alexis Taylor’s distinct voice, however, there was always a sense of something guarded and ironic. That changed dramatically with 2009’s One Life Stand, a record of almost embarrassing earnestness and devotion to love and happiness. It gave the sense that the group had settled into an identity and it breathed new life into their song writing. It was a lot more adult and comfortable, but in truth, it was also rather dull.

Wonderful Wow Worthy Worthless Worm Fodder

Three years have passed, with band member Joe Goddard releasing an excellent dancefloor-driven album as part of The 2 Bears, updating the humour and funk of Hot Chip’s first albums. In Our Heads sounds as if he has brought some of that energy back to the group. This is the rare album that has just as much groove as lyrical strength, and it shows listeners how dance music can be smart without rubbing your face in it. Pop hooks and big synthy sounds blend beautifully with heartfelt sentiments. “How Do You Do It” is a paean to love and a celebration of life backed by a slab of late 80s disco funk. “Look at Where We Are” drops the big-room sound and takes a successful left turn into guitar-driven quiet storm balladry. “Flutes” is a slow-burner with an infectious hook and an 808 state feel, while “Let Me Be Him” brings a Peter Gabriel sensibility to the spaced out R&B sound that has taken over these days, shifting into italo territory by the end of its seven minutes. Overall, the album could probably do with a better track order, but perhaps this is intentional. It has the feeling of a Prince album, in that whether you like slow crooning or upbeat funkiness, you’re likely to be hitting the fast forward button quite a bit. With a little patience, however, and an open mind, it’s an enjoyable ride, and one that suggests that the group has plenty of tricks up its sleeve for the years to come.

Furla’s New Addition –The Piper–

By WulanHandrajati


love Furla for its quality material and the relatively reasonable prices for their luscious leather. Furla gained some momentum with its Candy line, a speedy-like jelly tote, that comes in a variety of colors and patterns. While I have to admit that I’m not much of a jellyanything fan, when it comes to outfit and accessories, Furla remains as one of brands that I respect. Just recently, Furla came out with the Piper, a bandoleer-style tote bag that is super practical, with pockets and removable shoulder strap. I instantly fell in love with them! The Piper is available not only in a variety of colors, but also in different materials, textures and sizes!

I will say no more, let the pictures speak for themselves!


s t y l e

The leathers used are calf and bull leather, with varying textures, such as grained, embossedcrocodile, and lizard-like. Some are also available in contrast stitching, twist padlock, or a different back and front look.

There are three sizes available: mini, small and large. From the Furla website, I think most designs come in large sizes, with fewer selections in mini and small sizes. Do you think this bag will become one of the contenders for your bag this Summer? I certainly do.

The Piper also comes in fabric, and a mix of fabric and leather. I am especially drooling for the tri-color cotton with full-grain bull leather finishing. It’s so fresh and cheerful, perfect for casual times.

Are You Ready for L’Or


By: Amalia Hayati

Remember Dian’s ravishing makeup at the Cannes Film Festival red carpet? It’s all from the new collection of L’Oreal Paris called L’Or Electric. I thought I would have to wait a long time to get my hands on them, but apparently, Dian brought some back with her, especially for us. The new collection, L’Or Electric, consists of Mascara Lash Architect 4D, Color Riche and Open Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Quad that when combined together, will create an electrifying look.

I’m so head over heels with Dian’s nail polish! Dian uses L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Le Vernis in Sky Fits Heaven no. 611, which I will definitely snatch when they come to stores this July. They will be available in 15 shades and not only that, this nail polish includes gel elements that make the colours last long – up to 10 days in my case when I had the luxury to try the product at the press conference.


s t y l e


ian Sastrowardoyo’s trip to the Cannes Film Festival 2012 caused quite a buzz. From the dazzling red carpet dress designed by Eddy Betty to her once in a lifetime experience being in the same picture frame with the famous Robert Pattinson. Now what do we get from her trip to Cannes? As an Indonesian, no trip is complete without bringing back some oleh-oleh for your friends and family. And, the ever so thoughtful Dian, didn’t forget to bring us a little something.

Dian also came back with new products from L’Oreal Paris that she included in her skincare arsenal during her Cannes trip. What is it? It’s the new L’Oreal Paris White Perfect Laser Series which consist of a day cream and essence. These products help to minimize and fade unwanted spots and help to brighten skin tone without having to go for laser treatments! So you get the benefit that mimics a laser treatment without going to a beauty clinic! Aren’t you all excited as I am with all the new goodies that Dian brought from her trip to France? I know I’m so nuts over them, I could roll around in them all day!

If you’re wondering whether electric colours will suit our Asian skin, especially those with a middle to tan tone, Adi Adrian, official make-up artist at L’Oreal Paris said “I feel the electric colours are very suitable for Asian women. Caramel tone skin combined with bold colours create a harmonious blend that can radiate strength and confidence while providing a fresh and energetic effects on Indonesian women.” I couldn’t agree more with him. I always feel that the contrasting colour of electric actually lifts up my mood and also suits my medium skin tone perfectly. It looks just as lovely if you have fair skin. One of the examples is of course Dian’s look with L’Or Electric collection.

John Paul

A Classical Guitarist with an Indonesian Flavor By Erza S.T.


all the classical music varieties existing in Indonesia, classical guitar is perhaps the one that we don’t get to see so much. However, this doesn’t mean that we don’t have bona fide classical guitarists in Indonesia. It is actually the opposite. Names such as Sudirman Leman and Jubing Kristianto are pioneers who built their reputation through out the classical guitar scene. One of Indonesia’s most promising and talented classical guitarist is John Paul. The guitarist, who fell in love with guitar after being influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and Agustin Barrios, is currently doing postgraduate studies in guitar performance at the Koblenz International Guitar Academy in Germany under the guidance of Italian maestro Aniello Desiderio. He holds an undergraduate degree from Satya Wacana Christian University in Salatiga, Indonesia, and a Diploma from the Internationale Sommerakademie Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. His current studies have been made possible by generous supporters including Yayasan Musik Sastra Indonesia.

The Beat Jakarta was quite fortunate to catch up with this talented guitarist who just arrived back in town for summer holidays.

TBJ: Who is your inspiration in the guitar world? JP: My professor, Aniello Desiderio. In responding to this question I attempted repeatedly to explain why. But words evade me. Somebody is just going to have to bring him here on an Indonesian nation-wide tour, so people can enjoy the blessed privilege of experiencing him playing live in concert. TBJ: What do you think about the classical music scene in Indonesia these days? JP: It’s getting better and better. TBJ: There aren’t many classical guitarists compared to pianists or violinists. Has this fact change? Do we have more interest from the younger generation now? JP: It depends on how much “many” is, and how important quantity is. I think what is important is that everyone should have the chance to discover and develop their talent to their maximum. Even if there were a huge interest from the younger generation, the question is, how many qualified classical guitar teachers are available in Indonesia to cater to such a need? I don’t want to belittle anyone, but I do think there should be laws that regulate the qualifications required to teach in music schools. It’s a typical mistake as a beginner to think that anyone who seems to play better than you is a suitable teacher. A year later you will realizes you just copied all the mistakes your teacher does, who still tries

to convince you that as you “master” the guitar, you will get used to the pain in your back and wrist etc. Yayasan Musik Sastra Indonesia (YMSI) has a program called “Children in Harmony” that auditions children for talent and will, and grants scholarships enabling them to study with excellent well trained teachers. For guitar, Sudirman Leman is still at the forefront. I stongly recommend him to anyone who really wants be a professional guitarist. TBJ: We heard about your upcoming concert in Jakarta, could you please share some info about it? JP: Well, it’s a charity concert to help raise funds for underprivileged kids to resume school. I work together with Full Life Community. com/site/fullifecommunity/ My own studies have been supported by so many, including Yayasan Musik Sastra Indonesia. Ananda Sukarlan donated a piece to me. It was bought and subsequently dedicated to my biggest contributor, Jim Basick, whom I consider my own father. TBJ: What is your future goal? JP: Oh dear, there’s just too many. I guess I just want to finish my studies first with the best results possible, and make a plentiful living from performing and teaching. Why plentiful? So I can help others. Of course, I’m not going to wait around until I’m rich to do what I can, which is much more than I once thought. TBJ: John Paul by definition is? JP: The Beatles minus George and Ringo? Hahaha… I think God is still in the process of defining me according to His will. Can’t go wrong with God.

TBJ: Of all music types that guitars can do, why did you choose classical music? JP: I didn’t. It chose me; curiously late compared to anyone I’ve heard of.

m u s i c

As an educator, John Paul is also very committed. He was a member of the guitar faculty at Jakarta Conservatory of Music, and was recently invited to give a guitar workshop at the Faculty of Performing Arts at Satya Wacana Christian University, in Salatiga, Indonesia. He currently teaches at Musikschule Wagner in Koblenz, Germany. Aside from performing in charity concerts, he also volunteers to teach underprivileged children free of charge.


c l a s s i c a l

As a performer, John Paul is not only committed to introducing the standard classical repertoire to the Indonesian audience, but he is also dedicated to the dissemination of works by Indonesian composers. He performed the Indonesian premiere of Ananda Sukarlan’s first composition for solo guitar, “The 5 Lovers of Drupadi”, as well as the first public performance of Mr. Sukarlan’s piece for guitar and soprano/tenor, “By the Seaside: Twilight”, which was kindly donated to support John Paul’s studies.

Ice Age: Continental Drift Animation, Adventure, Comedy. Directors: Steve Martino, Mike Thurmeire. Writers: Jason Fuchs, Michael Berg. Cast: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Queen Latifah. Sebuah aksi kecil dari Scrat si tupai yang mengejar kacangnya menyebabkan dunia berubah dimana daratan terbelah menjadi benua yang kita kenal sekarang. Di tengah-tengah insiden benua yang terbelah itu, Manny, Diego dan Sid terhanyut dalam potongan daratan es dan terpisah dari rumah juga keluarga mereka. Mereka pun harus mencari jalan kembali ke rumah mereka dengan berlayar di hamparan laut yang luas. Petualangan mencari jalan balik ke rumah tidaklah mudah, mereka bertemu dengan sekumpulan bajak laut, makhluk lautan yang aneh dan bahkan Diego menemukan cinta sejatinya. Franchise film “Ice Age” bisa dibilang cukup laku dengan sekuel yang terus dibuat dari tahun ke tahun. Di sekuel keempat kali ini, duo sutradaranya adalah pembuat film pendek tentang Scrat si Tupai zaman purba di 2 film sebelumnya. Masih dengan karakter yang sama, dan tentunya kita juga suka menghafal siapa yang menjadi pengisi suara mereka sedari awal, di sekuel kali ini, akan dimunculkan beberapa karakter baru untuk menambah kesegaran dalam sisi humornya. Tidak banyak yang perlu kamu harapkan, film ini lumayan untuk mengisi waktu senggangmu. Pakai mantelmu yang tebal dan bawalah popcorn untuk berlayar di zaman es yang mencair! Who can forget the funny pre-historic squirrel, Scrat from the Ice Age films? Well in this sequel, a small act causes a world-changing consequence of which the whole world was split into what we call continents. Amidst this incident, Manny, Diego and Sid are drifting on an iceberg to the vast ocean and must find their way back. Fourth installation? Might be boring? Maybe yes, maybe no. With some new characters and a solid cast, we might not have enough of these pre-historic characters yet.

The Dark Knight Rises Action, Adventure, Crime. Director: Christopher Nolan. Writers: Jonathan Nolan, David S. Goyer. Cast: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Liam Neeson. Delapan tahun sejak insiden dengan Joker, reputasi Dark Knight alias Batman tercemar karena perbuatan yang dilakukan oleh Dent / Two Face sebelum dia mati. Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) pun menjalani harinya layaknya pengusaha milyuner dan tidak pernah muncul sebagai Batman lagi bahkan untuk membantu satuan kepolisian kota Gotham. Di saat yang sama,

seorang penjahat besar, Bane membebaskan seluruh tawanan penjara dan berencana untuk menghancurkan kota Gotham. Di saat seperti ini, Bruce Wayne pun tergerak untuk muncul kembali sebagai Batman dan melindungi kota Gotham yang sudah mencapnya sebagai seorang musuh. Penantian untuk salah satu film yang mungkin paling diantisipasi tahun ini akhirnya tiba juga. Sekuel ketiga ini merupakan akhir dari trilogi Dark Knight yang dibuat oleh sutradara Christopher Nolan. Bagi yang sudah menonton trailer-nya pastinya sudah tercengang dengan bagaiman Nolan memperlakukan film “superhero” ini menjadi seperti film kaliber Oscar. Kejutannya? Cuplikan yang kamu lihat di trailer itu katanya bahkan belum memperlihatkan permukaan dan cerita sebenarnya dari kesimpulan sang legenda Dark Knight alias Batman. Dengan jajaran pemain peraih dan nominasi Oscar seperti Tom Hardy yang menjadi Bane, Anne Hathaway sebagai Catwoman, Marion Cotillard, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, dan kembalinya sosok Liam Neeson sebagai R’as Al Ghul dari film pertama, The Dark Knight Rises dijamin akan membuat kamu diam terkagum dengan cerita, akting dan penggambaran visualnya. Oscar? Bisa jadi! Director Christopher Nolan might be the only filmmaker who ever directed an Oscar-winning superhero movie. To close the trilogy of the Dark Knight AKA Batman, this third and final installation may be the most anticipated movie of the year by the whole world, and it’s not an exaggeration. Saw the trailer already? It gave us goosebumps. Rumor has it that what’s been shown in trailer barely scratches the surface of it. You will be blown away by the story, the twists, the action, the excellent cast, and technical aspects all put together in 164 minutes of film that you will most likely remember for years to come!

A Little Bit Of Heaven Comedy, Drama, Romance. Director: Nicole Kassell. Writer: Gren Wells. Cast: Kate Hudson, Gael Garcia Bernal, Kathy Bates, Peter Dinklage. Marley Corbett (Kate Hudson) adalah seorang wanita muda yang cantik dan juga suka bercada, namun Marley takut membuka dirinya untuk menerima cinta dan komitmen. Dia sering tidak menganggap segala sesuatu serius dan menanggapinya dengan humor. Suatu hari ketika dia harus berobat ke dokter baru, Julian (Gael Garcia Bernal), Marley pun jatuh cinta dan mencoba untuk memulai untuk mengatasi ketakutan dirinya akan cinta dan komitmen. Bersama Julian, mereka berdua saling cocok dan berakhir di satu titik dimana mereka berdua tidak pernah menyangka. Baik sutradara maupun penulis skenarionya tidak ada yang terkenal pernah membuat film romantis komedi sebelumnya. Namun pemilihan aktris Kate Hudson sebagai pemeran utama cewek bisa dibilang tepat karena dia memang mempunyai karakter supel setiap kali bermain film romantis komedi. Bagi para cewek-cewek, tentunya kehadiran aktor ganteng berdarah Latin, Gael Garcia Bernal juga akan memberikan fantasi romantis tersendiri. Secara cerita, kamu cukup menikmati film ini layaknya film romantis komedi lainnya sambil ditemani popcorn favorit! Marley (Kate Hudson) is a young and lovely woman but can be irreverent sometimes. She’s also afraid of opening herself to love and commitment and uses her wits to pretend nothing is ever serious when it comes to men. When she has a life-changing visit with her new doctor, Julian (Gael Garcia Bernal), both of them are sent to an eye-opening romance with mutual discovery. Pretty much your typical romantic comedy, so don’t have any expectations, but this might still be a good date or girls-night-out kind of movie to be accompanied with popcorn to share.

they taste great even without having to dunk them in the soy sauce dip. Now, if there are a couple ‘masterpieces’ at Thai Alley, it must be these two: The first one is the Khao Ohb Nam Liaeb (45k) or fried rice with Chinese black olives and chicken, with fresh chili, lime, shallot, and cashew nuts. This is a nice twist to the old fried rice recipe; the black olives gave it a nice color, and the chili, lime, shallot, and cashew nuts were put on the side at first. But after mixing them with the rice, voila! It was like having another kind of rice dish altogether! A must try dish here! The next one is the Somboon Pong Kari (99k) or Thai-style chili crab. The crab is served with tasty stir fried yellow curry mixed with egg, onions, and spring onion. We have another winner on our hands! You can have this type of curry with your choice of squid, shrimp, or soft shell crab as well. The sweet Man Cham (29k) was our pick of dessert; tapioca cooked in syrup and topped with coconut cream. Our order of mocktails the Rayong (45k) - peach chuncks, lime, mint leaves, lavender syrup, and soda, and the Samui (45k) orange chunks, honey dew melons, lychee, and melon syrup were both very refreshing. Thai Food is about the celebration of the senses. Its flavors, aromas and colors would definitely light up every sense. With these authentic recipes of Thai street food, Thai Alley brought a “celebration of the senses” to the heart of Jakarta through your palates. (Budi Iskandar)


hai Alley is a new Thai restaurant located in Pacific Place Mall where it opened its doors about two months ago. The restaurant has a unique look about it. The concept is to bring the feel of having the best of Thai street cuisine inside an air conditioned mall. The only heat you’ll feel is from the spicy food, and that’s a good thing! The interior does look like an alley in the heart of Bangkok. There’s a façade of a shophouse here, stacks of bottled drink crates there, and the street lamps complete with electrical poles give it an edgy ambiance. The wooden furniture also adds a colorful touch. The owners of Thai Alley wanted to bring authentic Thai street food to Jakarta, and we were informed that they went to Bangkok and sampled as many delicious local eateries as they could. On their trips, they also found a team of Thai chefs who were ready to bring their expertise to Jakarta. We recently visited them for a late lunch and we had a very tasty Thai treat! We started with the Yam Mamuang (32k); spicy mango salad with chili and lime juice. A delicious assault on the taste buds, the spicy and sour appetizer dish is a perfect start to our culinary journey to Thailand. Of course, we just cannot visit a Thai restaurant without ordering the Tom Yam Goong (39k); that ubiquitous Thai favorite hot and spicy soup. Aroy (‘Delicious’ in Thai)! The Gai Hor Bai Toey (29k) or marinated chicken in pandan leaf also made it to our table. We loved how well marinated the chicken was;

SKIPJACK A new Japanese-influenced steak joint is ready to cater to your carnivorous cravings!

Tokyo Skipjack At Cosmo Japanese Supermarket Jl. Bulungan No. 16, Jakarta Selatan 12130 Ph.: (021) 9972 5000 Opens: 6 – 10 pm Note: Closed on Mondays


is a labor of love for two old college buddies with a passion for good food. The name itself is actually derived from a kind of tuna typically found in the waters around Japan, but they decided that it’s catchy enough for their eatery. It is a semi-outdoor restaurant, located at Cosmo Japanese Supermarket near Blok M area. As we arrived there, the aroma of meat sizzling on the grill was just too tantalizing.

Web: The kitchen area looks like a cross between a country Twitter: @TokyoSkipjack woodshed and a Yakitori counter. This is a very casual place, Facebook: TokyoSkipjack but the folks at Skipjack are dead serious about their stuff. And judging from the packed house that evening, this is the new place to be for steaks! The meats here are of excellent quality. Weighing at about 200 grams each, the US Sirloin (145k), Tenderloin (165k), and Rib Eye (155k) were superbly succulent. Yes, they do have more budgetfriendly choices of New Zealand Sirloin (65k), Rib Eye (75k), and Tenderloin (95k), but the US ones are simply to die for!


f o o d

Why not indulge yourself with “The King of Steak” that is Skipjack’s US Porterhouse (275k)? All 500 grams of beefy goodness that is big in size and big in flavor. One side of the porterhouse is the wonderful full-bodied taste of strip loin steak, while the other is the luxurious tenderness of filet mignon - the best of both worlds, indeed! The meats are the main stars here, but the side dishes play a supporting role worthy of winning the Food Oscars themselves! The seemingly simple golden brown French fries are seasoned with Balinese sea salt for an extra oomph. The sweet Corn Batayaki is a corn on the cob brushed with a yummy mixture of soy sauce and butter.The mashed potato is called Mitsuba Mash; mitsuba is a type of Japanese parsley with a fresh, slightly peppery flavor. Put together, it gives the creamy mashed potato a certain texture and taste like no other. Last but not least, the Green Salad with Japanese Dressing is a delightful mix of Japanese ‘Horenzo’ spinach with homemade Goma dressing. They are all vying for your attention, but the good thing is you can choose two sides to accompany your steak!

Skipjack is giving other steak eateries a run for their money, and rightly so. This is one highly recommended place for steaks. Ask them about their philosophies of Kodawari and Kiwameru; you’ll understand why Skipjack is fast becoming the favorite for Jakarta’s steak lovers. (Budi Iskandar)

The meats and side dishes are all good, but the sauces here are pure genius! Skipjack has four types of homemade sauces, each one as tasty as the other. The Homemade Barbecue and Creamy Mushroom are classic companions to your choice of steak, but the two most popular here are the Wasabi Butter and the Japanese Chimichurri. The former is a buttery blend of sauce with just a hint of a kick from the wasabi. The latter can be described as “When Tokyo Meets Tango”; a Japanese take on Argentina’s national steak sauce, the Chimichurri. Here, the more traditional parsley is substituted with the Mitsuba. These are some winning cross-cultural combinations, if you asked us!

exhibition dedicated to the founding father of this nation titled “The Energy of Bung Karno” was put on show at Taman Ismail Marzuki. This week-long event was a coming together of different artists from all over Indonesia paying an Ode to the man who’s ideas and efforts made this country independant. A mixture of installation art and canvas art, the exhibition depicted the energy this enigmatic individual had in the times of struggle and gaining independence from the then Dutch colonization. Soekarno’s family life and hobbies are also depicted in these work of arts. There were good reviews all round when visitors were asked about this exhibition as they felt that it was more than just another display of art, but a beautifully told story of a man many say has never been replaced by any other president. The artists themselves admitted that they were very enthusiastic and willing to do this event as they themselves found inspiration in the energy and individual that was Bung Karno.

The Natural Acoustics iPhone Amplifier

This is the passive ceramic amplifier made in Italy that produces naturally resonant tones from an iPhone. Designed in Milan, it is handcrafted entirely of slip-cast ceramic fired in Vincenza, renowned since the 18th century for its traditional ceramics that have been compared to the finest Chinese porcelain. The clay itself comes from the Tuscan comune of Montelupo Fiorentino, a prominent center of ceramics production during the Renaissance, its products reaching as far as the first European settlements in Central America. Replicating the curvature and passive amplification of a horn, the amplifier augments sound from an iPhone without requiring auxiliary power or speaker components. The amplifier projects music or phone calls using authentic horn acoustics; simply place an iPhone or iPod in the amplifier’s cradle. Its walnut base provides minimum contact with the horn for optimal acoustic performance. $499.95

The Stem innovation iZON Remote Room Monitor is a WiFi based camera that has been designed to work specifically with iOS devices. Sharing is caring, or so they say. But just try telling that to the room-mate whose last beer is missing, or the work-mate who can’t find her specially prepared, organic, vegan lunch, and did the teacher ever really believe that the dog ate your homework? Even if you’re lucky (or foolish) enough to trust everyone completely, sometimes it’s nice to be able to keep your eyes on things from afar. The idea is to place the iZON camera in a desired location and then view it remotely using your iPhone or iPad. £99.95

Coco Hotel in Tanah Lot, Tabanan claims direct access to the more spiritual side of Bali. It’s a good place to stay for those who look for a more laid back yet lofty holiday experience in the Island of the Gods.

Coco Hotel Tabanan

Kawasan Wisata Pura Tanah Lot, Tabanan, Bali Tel: 62 361 819958 Fax: 62 361 814 793 Email: cocohoteloprmgr@


Being located just a short walk from the famous Tanah Lot temple Coco Hotel offers a glimpse of the side of Bali that can’t be found in the livelier spots like Seminyak and Kuta. The Tanah Lot district may be short on bars or worldly entertainment but the destination more than makes it up with plenty of breathtaking natural beauty and rich cultural heritage within the Tabanan regency.


Coco Hotel is a simple 10-room lodging that makes the most of its natural surroundings. The layout is reminiscent of an old Balinese bed and breakfast with elements of current architectural style added to provide a modern and clean feeling about the resort.


Green and amiable; despite being located just a few meters from the main access road to Tanah Lot temple Coco Hotel is very quiet. With only 10

rooms situated in two parallel rows inside a 2500 meter squared compound, occupants will not feel completely isolated from the surroundings. Guests also don’t have to walk too far to the main entrance, swimming pool and restaurant.


Coco Hotel is equipped with one swimming pool for adults and one for children. The rooms boast 5-star hotel amenities, including open air showers for deluxe rooms. The restaurant at the lobby is opens 24 hours and serves international and local dishes. Butler assistance and spa services are available for in-room request. Coco Hotel also is situated right next to the beautiful Bali Nirwana Golf and Country Club. Lastly, the fact that Coco hotel is situated inside the gated Tanah Lot tourism complex provides added security to guests.

Bali to open a cartoon museum Plans to open a cartoon museum honouring the art and humour of local cartoonists was confirmed by Govenor Pastika. “It is very good to see the chronological history of our people in a humorous yet smart way through a cartoon museum,” said Pastika at the event, Drawing Cartoon Faces Bali Mandara at Denpasar’s Cultural Park. The Bali Chairman of the United Indonesian Cartoonist Society (Pakarti), Ida Bagus Matinaya, said caricature art in Bali has developed since 1981. “We have many meaningful and educated works,” he said. “Cartoon art is special and paradoxical since the artwork can either make people happy or sad. Every developing country uses cartoons to explain its social phenomenon.” He also pointed out that ethics must exist as in journalism. The cartoonist should not insult other tribes, religions or races and insults against people with disabilities are not acceptable.The Deputy Chariman of Partika, Made Gede Parama Artha, added that the museum could attract many tourists and both old and new works could be displayed.

Want to eat in style with a view that overlooks kuta beach, the stones is an excellent option.




f o o d

something considering how many places serve up top-notch local cuisine) in a setting that you won’t find in your average Kuta restaurant. If you’re all nasi’d out then the lunch and dinner menus are chock full of more international dishes such as the three big S’s (salads, soups and sandwiches), pastas, risottos, fish & chips, seared scallops and prawn ravioli. A live music special program that endeavours to bring big name acts right to the beach is the finishing touch that means whatever you are looking for, you’re pretty likely to find it at The Stones. Dan Ashcroft

The Stones Jl. Raya Pantai Kuta Ph. +62 361 766 100


ith a look that is more Miami Beach than Kuta Beach, The Stones entertainment complex occupies a commanding view over the sands, and provides plenty of options for diners and clubbers who fancy doing it in style. No less than three venues are tucked inside the chic, sprawling premises, and with the 307-room hotel venue set to open within the next couple of months it’s clear that The Stones is going to be a tough cookie to beat. For those looking for the ultimate in a stylishly chilled afternoon, Infamy rooftop bar & lounge with jacuzzi opens from 12 noon and is the perfect sunset spot for a cocktail or two. Downstairs Blue Sapphire club opens between 7pm-2am (3 on weekends), with a live music program for the early crew before the house DJ cranks up the tempo from 12 ‘til drop. Dining wise, the cavernous upstairs restaurant Salt of the Earth provides a casual dining spot with a lip-smacking Western menu and fresh seafood for lunch and dinner, all the while affording stunning views across Kuta Beach. In case all that isn’t enough, a trendy decking area out front boasts comfy sun loungers and an inviting pool to cool off in – beach club style. A ‘small bites’ menu featuring tasty morsels such as fries, calamari, meatballs and Thai paper rice rolls will keep the grazers happy, while a new Indonesian specials menu showcases a selection of the archipelago’s finest and most renowned dishes. Having nipped in for a spot of late lunch with a couple of mates on holiday, we decided to take a punt on the local menu so I can introduce them to a bit of home cooking, courtesy of local chef Des Yanto. Yanto has a wealth of experience around town, having flashed up in such hallowed kitchens as Mozaic and KuDeTa, and it’s clear that the menu choices – both local and Western, have been well thought out and should keep the majority of diners salivating for more. We decide to go the whole hog and order up the Soto Ayam (chicken broth 40k), Mie Goreng (fried noodles 40k), Sop Buntut (beef soup 55k), Gule Kambing (lamb 55k) and Nasi Goreng Ayam (chicken fried rice 55k) to share out and get a taste of everything. This turns out to be a good move, as everything is hastily devoured, with not a morsel left over – the dishes easily as good as you’d find around town (which is saying

Tulip first anniversary party


ulip’s first anniversary was a fine celebration of great Turkish cuisine from the classy Petitenget establishment. An acoustic combo opened the evening’s festivities with some very entertaining tunes. The highlight of the evening, however, was a charming interplay between the DJ and a guest clarinet player.
