TEAMTALK

LET’S CELEBRATE!
‘Om Swastiastu...’ Another year has passed and here we are at our 15th anniversary! It can be fun to reminisce about the years that have passed, like back to the time that Bali & Beyond was still in tabloid form, or how the island used to be when the magazine first started compared to how it is now. However, we’ve decided not to do too much reminiscing this year and instead we want to focus on celebrating the now. So check out a lighthearted piece we prepared titled ‘Fun Fifteen’ where we asked 15 people around the island 15 questions that are all related to the number 15! Our colorful Beyond Bali piece about the annual carnival in Jember is sure to get you in a festive mood. As for Rest & Relaxation, this time we decided to cover the W Resort & Spa Bali because they always have great parties. If you’re already familiar with their rooms then you’ll want to check out this article to see their villas – the design is completely different but of course still has that signature W touch. It’s a surprisingly peaceful area where you can rest your head after an eventful night out. And to change things up, we’ve decided to teach you a fun workout in Action & Attraction this month. Follow our contributor’s 10-step workout to burn off those extra calories from partying it up during the months ahead! We hope you enjoy this edition and we thank you so much for continuing to support and read our magazine. We’re eager to work on some new ideas for the coming year and we really hope they’ll be able to keep you excited and entertained! Here’s to the future… Cheers! ‘Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om…’ The Team

In celebration of our 15th anniversary, we put together a list of 15 fun questions that all have something to do with the number 15, and then asked some of our friends in Bali to answer candidly. See what they had to say!
What is your most memorable moment from 15 years ago? “Wallet, lipstick, lip balm, compact “The day of my definite departure to Bali. It was one of the big happenings in my life and friends and family gathered at the airport to wish me lots of luck and success in my new life. It was an experience that was definitely happy and adventurous but somewhat sad as well. I will never forget it because it brought me where I am today, living and working in beautiful Bali!” Nicoline Dolman (pictured 15 years ago with her mother) Director of Sales & Marketing at Bali Dynasty Resort Frits Henskes General Manager at Ayung Resort Ubud Renata Hutasoit Marketing Director for Beachwalk powder, Blackberry, iPhone, power bank, a ball-point pen, tissue, business cards, perfume, two open-date cinema tickets, eye-drops, car keys, and a card-wallet (full of discount cards, membership cards, etc.)” “Having lived in Bali for the last 24 years, I have seen the island grow from an island of rice fields and pristine beaches to a real estate island full of villas, hotels and thousands of ruko. However, what makes this island particularly fascinating is the enduring quality of the culture. Even today, Bali is proving that the unique spiritual forces that shaped the island will continue to act as a major determining influence well into the future.” Name 15 things in your purse!

CRAFT&CULTURE

MELAJAH BASA BALI
A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO THE BALINESE LANGUAGE

H

ere in Bali, people speak “Basa Bali” (Balinese) as their mother tongue. Indonesian and English are widely understood and you’ll also find

• The most common vowel in Basa Bali is “a” but it is also the most difficult because there are many ways to pronounce it. For example: • natah (yard) is similar to “a” in “rather” • apa (what) is similar to “o” in “how” • jelema (human) is similar to “i” in bird • Pronouncing “e” in Basa Bali is similar to “i” in bird • Pronouncing “ng” in Basa Bali is similar to “ng” in “mingle”

people in the tourism industry who have a handle on languages like Mandarin and Russian, but Basa Bali reigns supreme when it comes to casual interactions on the island. Learning Basa Bali doesn’t have to be difficult, so why not try to get a few phrases under your belt for a more colorful experience while you are here?

SENTENCE STRUCTURE THREE LEVELS
There are three levels of Basa Bali, depending on who you are addressing. Basa Bali Alus is the highest level of Balinese reserved for formal situations and for those who are highly respected (parents, employers, people with higher caste). Basa Bali Madya is the middle level of Balinese that is used for day-to-day interaction with friends and family. Basa Bali Kasar is the lowest level used to express anger or used with close friends, as it can be considered rude in certain situations. The sentence structure is identical to Indonesian, for example: • “Tiang ngajeng nasi” (I’m eating rice) issubject-verbobject • “umah ageng” (big house) is noun-adjective • “kereng megae” (working hard) is adverb-verb

FUN TIPS
• Instead of saying good morning or good afternoon, “Om Swastiastu” is the common expression used. To end a conversation or to say goodbye, you can say “tiang mepamit” (I have to leave). • When giving directions, the Balinese rarely use left and right. Instead, they will use north, south, east and west to direct you to where you are trying to go. • The Balinese name their children based on their order of birth. The first child is named Wayan, Iluh, Gede or Putu; the second is Made, Kadek or Nengah; the third Nyoman or Komang and the fourth Ketut. So if your name is John Doe and you are the first child in your family, your Balinese name would be “Gede John Doe.” „ By Bayu Rahanatha

PRONOUNCIATION
Now that you know that there are three levels, don’t let this discourage you. We’re not aiming for perfection, just a few basic skills. Here’s a simple guide to pronunciation: • Balinese is pronounced not too differently than other Malay-influenced languages. For example “tiang”, which means “I”, is pronounced tea-young • The stress should be put on the last syllable. So if you were to say “Basa Bali” you would put the stress on sa and li

LIFESTYLE&LEISURE

WALK THIS WAY
BEACHWALK MALL, PART OF THE RECENTLY DEVELOPED SAHID KUTA LIFESTYLE RESORT, HAS QUICKLY BECOME THE ‘IT’ VENUE FOR PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING YOUR HEART DESIRES.

H

ailing from Jakarta where there are countless malls (or what they like to call ‘lifestyle centers’),

Beachwalk is nothing like its counterparts in Jakarta, which often look like blocks of grey concrete illuminated by LEDs. At Beachwalk you are welcomed by stylish openair architecture adorned with greenery and lined with waterways. A fresh breeze blows in from the beach and the design really succeeds in reflecting the wonderful laid back attitude of the island. Beachwalk was purposely built to compliment the existing Harris Resort Kuta Beach and the new Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort that sits on either side of the shopping area, within the

5.3 hectare complex. With the idea of being a one-stop lifestyle hub, Beachwalk really delivers. As you walk around you will find everything from the latest fashion trends to delicious food, and a theater with the latest Hollywood blockbusters. With 200 sophisticated retail stores and eateries, you will be spoilt for choices.

I wasn’t sure what to think when I first heard there would be a mall built in the middle of Jalan Pantai Kuta. I imagined clutter and crowds and actually avoided the place, until one day I had to visit because my relatives were staying at the Sheraton Bali Kuta (part of the Sahid Kuta Lifestyle Resort). When I arrived at Beachwalk I found that I couldn’t have been more wrong.

SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP
Beachwalk presents an expansive range of world-renowned designer brands as well as the hippest local labels, offering everything from

BALI&BEYOND JULY 2013

luxury clothing and accessories to bohemian beach wear. International brands available include Furla, Armani Jeans, Versace Jeans, Y3, Longines, Mango, Pull & Bear, Aldo and the soon-to-be-opened Zara, just to name a few. As for local fashion labels it boasts SATU, which is an area housing the creations of Bali’s 20 top fashion designers including Ali Charisma, Espen Salberg, Sapto Djojokartiko and Ni Luh Djelantik. In contrast there’s also the 2.0 - Eclectic Fashion Bar, offering collections from Bali-based brands for the younger set.

CHOW DOWN
The mall offers a wide range of places to eat or just enjoy the sunset with your friends and family. Kihana is there for those in the mood for Japanese delights, The Kitchenette serves delicious crepes, Fish & Co offers scrumptious seafood, and

The combination of East meets West in this dish was extraordinary, with the dashi broth smelling and tasting so authentically Japanese and the seared foie gras matching the broth’s flavor in a surprisingly beautiful way. The next course was a Southern Goan Curry with barramundi, mustard seeds, sambar powder, coconut milk and curry leaves from Chef Meyrick. The fiery Indian

flavors would have woken up any guest that might have been feeling sluggish after several glasses of wine. Luckily for those who couldn’t take the heat, the curry was served with plentiful amounts of pilaf rice served in bowls to be passed around the tables. For the third course, Chef Davenport served up Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder with urab salad, smoked potato mash, rendang jus and tendon crisp. The lamb was

Seeing the four chefs work together was heartwarming, and witnessing candid moments like the wiping of sweat off foreheads or a startled expression when one of them found themselves face to face with a camera was really entertaining in itself! After each course was served, the chefs made their rounds in the dining room and took time to mingle with the guests. Lots of hand-shaking and smiles were exchanged and everyone looked to be in high spirits despite the pouring rain. Afterwards, the chefs thanked their very talented teams of Indonesian chefs for helping to make the event happen as well as their families for being so patient with them as they prepared for this very important night.

Menu highlights include the rack of lamb, the rib-eye steak and the lemon linguine with herbs and snapper, not to mention the sides like baby beets with goat cheese and thyme and the fresh bread that comes straight out of the oven and right to your table. Many of their ingredients come from gardens planted in the Bedugul area, which the chef always makes time to visit.

But once you step into the stylish spa you will be overcome with serenity as the therapeutic background music is instantly calming. After changing into a soft and comfortable robe, you’ll be led into the facial treatment room that is set at the perfect temperature. Then you can sink into the plush reclining seat and wait for your therapist to begin your 45 minute Babor Men’s Facial treatment. This facial treats the skin with organic ingredients, cleanses it from dirt and blackheads, as well as moisturizes.

Riding the buggy to the Reméde Spa through the shady tropical grounds, you can’t help but fall into a stressfree and tranquil state of mind. When you enter the spa through the crystal-curtained oriental threshold, you will be welcomed by the warm and friendly smiles of their professional staff. The quiet and calm sanctuary is surrounded by koi ponds and the soothing murmuring fountains will prepare you for the bliss you’re about to experience. My session took place in one of the two special rooms designed specifically for this treatment. As I sat on the manicure-pedicure chair, the treatment began with the clipping of my finger nails and cuticles and pumicing of my heels. Afterwards came an excellent hand and feet scrubbing using a special concoction of coconut oil and scrub cream, which helped to clean all the dirt from my pores and peel away dead skin.

My feet were then immersed in a small jet pool of warm water while my hands were wrapped in heated Paraffin wax – a special aromatic gelatinous wax that improves blood circulation, releases tension and moisturizes the skin. I chatted away with the warm and friendly staff while my hands and feet got the best one hour pampering they have ever had. I hadn’t realized the kind of battering my hands and feet were getting from being in the sun every day and wearing flip flops so

often. Reméde Spa’s manicure and pedicure is something I think any man would benefit from, especially those who have been in and out of the sea or at the beach a lot during their stay in Bali. „ St. Regis Bali Resort Kawasan Pariwisata BTDC Lot S6, Nusa Dua (0361) 847-8111 www.stregisbali.com By Ariko Ahmad

and do whatever we liked there – sip fresh coconut, eat Indomie (Indonesian instant noodles), meet new people or simply enjoy the ocean view. Nowadays there are less and less beach shacks to be found. But something interesting to note is that they have influenced a trend in architecture. If you head to the Bukit Peninsula on the southernmost point of Bali, where some of the best beaches lie, you’ll find modern beach clubs inspired by the traditional beach shacks. Beyond Bali, for example at Gili Trawangan island, you can also find modern un. Sand. Palm trees. Endless views of the shore and lines of beach shacks. The beach used to be the perfect long as we know how to appreciate whatever is available around us. On the inside they provide cozy little havens. Despite beach shacks not being sturdy enough to be a permanent shelter, they still offer protection from the rain and the sun and keep the sand out of our eyes during windy days. Beach shacks are unpretentious hang out spots that welcome everyone, from the calm and cool to the loud and boisterous. Owned by locals and visited by international tourists, they used to be the perfect meeting point. Several years ago my friends and I would traipse over to hidden beaches beach shacks that serve as luxury accommodation for travelers. Decorated in vibrant colors with high ceilings and a fancy bar set-up, this new design concept has taken the old beach shack style to the next level. However, I must admit that I really miss the old beach shacks and the honesty and simplicity of it all. Additionally, the sleek new hangouts bring some questions to mind: Will today’s beach bars still welcome the same crowd? Or will the budget travelers be left without a place to lay low, relax and be themselves? „ By Aini Zariyah

actually what Jember looks like during the Jember Fashion Carnaval (JFC). It was almost 12 years ago that they first introduced the carnival. As a local, I can safely say that back then it wasn’t as spectacular as it is today, but it was very festive for a town as small as Jember. Dynand

Fariz, the man behind the JFC, first held the carnival without any support from the local government or private companies, but it has impressively managed to grow into the world’s 4th biggest carnival event attended by thousands from around the globe. When I graduated from high school I moved to Surabaya and was surprised to see the buzz on social media about the JFC. I never imagined that JFC would grow to be such a major event. When one of my friends decided to join the carnival as one of the artists last year, I took the opportunity to go back to my hometown and see the 11th annual JFC. One of the first things I saw was 600 artists walking along the 4 km catwalk located right in the heart of the town, all dressed

up in beautiful and dazzling handmade costumes. Every year the event has a theme, and last year’s was ‘Extremeagination’ with 10 categories of costumes; Roman Empire, Madurese, Oceanarium, Persians, Orchiaceae, Savana, Mushroom, Dragon, Trinidad & Tobago, and Planet Heredity. Trinidad & Tobago is the category that I believe deserves a special note. As participants came out on the street dancing to the music, they were utterly engaging with their fantastic costumes and huge wings adorned with thousands of brightly colored feathers. They were able to lure everyone into joining in and dancing. In my personal opinion I think that the carnival has really progressed over the years. Everything seemed to go smoothly and the organizers managed to keep everything in order. The city itself has grown from it and slowly but surely there have been more and more hotels popping up as well as more places to hang out. One can even say that the JFC has single handedly brought many positive changes to this little town. As the popularity of the carnival continues to grow, the Jember Fashion Carnaval will return this year for three full days from August 23 to 25 with the theme ‘Artechsion.’ The new costume

JEMBER

SOUTHERN BEACHES
During your stay in Jember, you should take some time to visit the southern beaches. The Payangan and Papuma beaches are located about 40 km away from town, and you will pass magnificent views of tobacco fields and teak plantations along the way. Jember is renowned for their tobacco production and even the batik prints from this area have hints of tobacco-inspired motifs in them. Pasir Putih Malikan Beach, or what the locals like to call Papuma beach, is really popular with tourists. With expansive coral reefs and white sand, the place is perfect for catching the sunrise and watching the fishermen head out to sea. Just a 10-minute ride from Papuma you will find Payangan Beach. It’s a beautiful hilly seafront with a busy morning fish market where fishermen sell their fresh catch of the day. I also recommend climbing up to the top of Semboja Hill to catch a glimpse of Nusa Barung, which is a no-visitor conservation island. „ By Dwi Putri Ratnasari

HEALTH&MEDICAL
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.
