A Park for Pedestrians

Pedestrian Underpass at Ngurah


Rai Monument at Bali Airport Set
to Open in Early 2015
Plans are moving ahead to build a
pedestrian underpass at the
Ngurah Rai Statue located near
the entrance to Bali's Ngrah Rai
International Airport.
A pet project of regent A.A. Gde
Agung, the underpass will make
Continued from front page
The new regulations require
hotels in the densely developed
areas of Kuta to have a plot of no
less that one-half hectare (50 are or
5,000 square meters). For projects
planned in North Kuta the minimum
project site increases to threequarters of a hectare (75 ares or
7,500 square meters). Meanwhile,

the small park encircled by busy


roads accessible to the public.
According to an official website,
the tendering process for the
underpass commenced on July
24, 2014 and will at the end of
August 2014. A contract to
commence the project is
scheduled for signing
onSeptember 3, 2014.
The pedestrian underpass at the
Ngurah Rai Statue will be slightly
smaller than a similar underpass
planned at the Dewi Ruci
Monument.

The underpass near the airport will


open in early 2015.
The walls of the underpass will
include a diorama depicting the
military battles of Ngurah Rai in the
struggle for national
independence.

independence from Dutch colonial
rule.

in South Kuta the minimal lot


size for a hotel is one-hectare.
The new rules came into
force on August 1, 2014, but will not
apply retroactively to hotels or
projects already in operation or in
possession of a building permit.
The same regulation
strengthens existing rules on
minimum coefficients for open
gardens and minimal parking

spaces .
The Bandung Regency's
record on enforcement against
hotels violating zoning and building
codes is poor with at least one
branded hotel operating in Kuta
without a building permit or an
operating license.

BALI THE RIGHT WAY


Gday again folks and welcome to the weekly for another run. This
week saw the end of the A.F.L footy season for my Mighty Pies as
they were out classed by the Hawks on Friday night. A few teams
went on holidays this week, but I think the biggest win was for the
Tigers against Sydney. What a great game and it should be a ripper
finals series. One thing is the tipping is all done now so no more
rushing to get the tips in before the first bounce each week. What
aliasj@kutaweekly.com
this also means is the tipping parties are about to begin with
arguably the best one being held each year at the Kuta Town houses. I find it strange that as an expat you
would actually miss this shin dig. The powers that be put on the best feed I have ever eaten at a party with
the bar being open and flowing for as long as you want to stay. Im not sure when they are having it this year
but I will let you all know as soon as the verdict has been given.
One thing I do know and can tell you is that the Roof Top venue at Kuta Townhouses is putting on a big
Grand Final Day Party. They are opening the bar and I mean FULLY OPENING THE BAR and that's
including all the good stuff along with the all you can eat Brazillian Aussie BBQ. They have scored one of
the biggest television screens on the island for the venue, so all the action can be watched live on the big
screen. There will be door prizes, half time entertainment and lots of give aways on the day. Bali Moon and
San Miguel are getting involved and will also be throwing a few free gifts around so should be a great day.
There is a limited number of tickets available so Id say get in quick as they are selling fast. The event starts
at about 11:30am and will run through until about 4.30pm so plenty of time to get a few quiet beers or red
labels down. Adult tickets will be a milly per head on the day and 900k for pre paid tickets. Kids tickets for
ages 5yrs -17yrs are a bargain at 200k (no alcohol) and no Mr Steve, you are not a kid anymore and all
Collingwood supporters will be charged double. Tickets are now available from the Kuta Townhouse
reception or by giving the event organizer a call. Check out the advert on page 13 and we will see you on
the day.

Plain Spoken about Tourism


President-elect Joko
Widodo Speaks to Bali
About Tourism
Keeping a campaign
promise to visit the Island of Bali as
his first visit once he was formally
confirmed at President of the
Republic, Joko Widodo traveled to
Bali to meet with outgoing
President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono and discuss the
transition of power.
After the one-on-one
meeting between the President
and President-elect, Joko Widodo
made a short speech in from the
Bung Karno Museum in Renon,
downtown Denpasar on Saturday,
August 30, 2014.
A s r e p o r t e d b y
Beritadewata.com, Joko Widodo
reminded an audience composed

expert and politicians that Bali

tourists.
Joko Widodo also plead for
tourism not to undertake acts that
damage the environment. I have
heard that South Bali is too
crowded; too forced. Don't allow
the environment to be destroyed
just because we surrender too
much land to tourism,' the
President-elect warned.
Joko Widodo warned that
Bali's interesting culture alone in
the absence of steps to preserve
the destination's natural beauty will
not be enough sustain Bali into the
future. Widodo also issued his

Don't let tourism destroy Bali. We

Moving along, and on a final note I must say last Friday night at the Crusoes pressure hour I believe I saw
the funniest thing I have ever seen in my many years being on this island, when a punter hell bent on
drinking the bar dry in the hour, misjudged just how much he needed to take a leak, and ended up trying to
use one of the pot plants, but while stepping into relieve himself, he has misfooted and tumbled head long
into the wall with the pot and plant topling on him, then while laying there in the mess, he has lost all
bladder control and let rip in his pants. I think the rest of us actually pissed ourselves laughing so the hour
was extended just to see a few more mugs pay the price. If
you haven't had a chance to get down to Crusoes for the
Friday arvy pressure hour Id say do yourself a favour and
give it a try. The fact that there are no longer any pot plants in
the front section aside, it is a great place to catch up with
friends and an even better way of starting your weekend.
Thanks for the support Crusoes.
Ok folks that's about my lot for the week and I trust that the
most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always try your
very best to remember, I believe that if life gives you lemons,
you should make lemonade... and try to find somebody
whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.
Enjoy Your Week,
ALIASJ..

Gypsy at the Wheel


Widespread Violation of
Laws on Taxi Meter Use
Damaging the Reputation of
Bali as a Tourism Destination
Bisnis Bali recently
presented a page-one review of
the state of metered taxi service in
Bali and the negative impact the
poor behavior of taxi drivers is
having on the Island's reputation
as a tourist destination.
The report alleges that many
drivers refuse to use tax meters,
preferring negotiated fares
imposed on unsuspecting visitors.
When passengers adamantly
insist on the meter being used,
many drivers will take retaliate by
taking circuitous routes to ensure
the highest possible fare..
At the end of a tax ride,
according to Bisnis Bali, taxi
drivers retaliate further by feigning
an inability to make change,
upping the fare even more.
The director of the
Consumer Protection Agency in
Bali (YLPK-Bali), I Putu Armaya,
explained the term "argo tembak"
is used to describe the refusal of
tax drivers in Bali to engage a taximeter, favoring instead to
negotiate a more lucrative price
directly with the customer.
A recent survey conducted
among passengers at Bali's

Ngurah Rai Airport revealed


widespread disaffection with taxi
service to and from the airport,
specifically mentioning the
practice of "argo tembak" and the
resulting victimization of Island
visitors.
Armaya said: "Until now,
there are many taxis refusing to
use their meters. This requires firm
action."
The use of taximeters is
under the supervision of the Bali
Transportation Office that has it
within their statutory power to jail
drivers and revokes the operating
licenses of taxi companies
refusing to use taximeters in the
transport of their passengers.
Joining Armaya in
condemning the failure of many
operators to use taximeters is
Eddy Dharma Putra of the Bali
To u r i s t T r a n s p o r t a t i o n
Organization (Organda), who
shares the view that the

The Stark Truth About Drinking Beer

unprincipled behavior of taxi


companies and their drivers is
damaging the reputation of Bali.
In response to these
c o m p l a i n t s , Wa y a n P a n d e
Sudirtha, the chairman of Koptax
(Taxi Cooperative) at the airport,
blames taxi customers citing them
as
the party requesting that
requesting negotiated instead of
metered taxi rides. Sudirtha also
contends that the negotiated price
offered by taxi drivers is oftentimes
less than the fare would be if the
meter were used.
Sudirtha claims traffic
congestion in Bali can often result
in high metered taxi fares that are
substantially more than whatt
might be agreed beforehand
directly with the driver.
Sudirtha. nonetheless,
insisted that sanctions are still
imposed on drivers proven to be
refusing to use official meters.
The official metered tax rate
in Bali is Rp. 6,000 (US$0.52) on
flag fall and Rp, 5,700 (US$0.50)
per kilometer of distance traveled.
Pande complained that the
907 taxis registered in his
cooperative enjoy very limited
incomes.

Stark Beer - a World Class


Beer Produced in a Modern
Brewery on Bali's North
Coast
First established as a
microbrewery in 2011, Stark Beer
is the first wheat beer produced in
Indonesia entirely from natural
product without preservatives - an

additive cited as the cause


of "hangovers" in other beers.
Produced with pure spring water
that undergoes three rigorous
filtrations that retains the natural
minerals while removing any
bacteria and toxic elements.
Stark Beer is produced in
Singaraja, North Bali at a modern
state-of-the-art brewery in a
refrigerated environment.
In the few intervening years,
Stark Beer has grown to a
medium-sized brewery with a
growing reputation for the high
quality of its wheat, dark wheat
and low-carbohydrate beers,
Speaking to Bali Post,
general manager of Stark Beer,
Raimund Norbert Mester, said that
most ingredients for making his
brews are still imported from
abroad and mixed with the
highest-quality local spring water
to produce a distinctive and

aromatic beer for the


Indonesian market.
The low-carbohydrate beer
produced by Stark Beer uses a
high-technology method that
manages to reduce sugars while
still retaining a 5% alcohol content
in the final product. Mester boasts
the finished product - a white beer
using special grains and yeast
imported from Belgium - is rich in
vitamins and half as fattening as
competing beers.
Sharing a production secret,
Mester said the wheat beer
produced by Stark Beer uses local
coriander that give the beer a taste
with a hint of a Balinese orange.
Meanwhile the dark wheat beer - a
German-style brew - has a color
resembling a ruby bestowed
through the marriage of wheat,
malt and caramel.

In Urgent Need of Connections


PLTU Celukan Bawang
Aiming to Start
Producing Electrical
Power for Bali in
December 2014 - a Year
Behind Schedule
The coal-driven steam
powered electrical generation
plant at Celukan Bawang
(PLTU Celukan Bawang) in
North Bali continues to be
plagued by delays with
investors now targeting electrical
production to commence in
December 2014 - more than a
year behind schedule.
There a variety of reasons
cited for the delay, including
technical delays at the
construction site and delays in
the construction of a high voltage
power lines.
Egon Wisjnu of PT General
Energy Bali the first phase of
active operations by PLTU
Celukan Bawang in December
will add 142 megawatts to the
Bali power supply with phase two
and three adding a further 142
megawatts to the system in
January-February 2015.
The project being
constructed by PT General
Energy Bali (GBE) and China

10

Hundian Engineering
Corporation (CHEC) is now
estimated to be 75% completed.
Wisnju explained: "If we see our
contract with PLN, indeed the
operation of the plant has been
postponed a little. We are now
striving to finish the physical
construction of the power plant
and targeting operations to start
in December 2014 and
completed in phases two and
three in January-February
2015."
He said the delay in
constructing high-voltage power
lines caused by the refusal of
many local citizens to allow highpower lines to be placed over
their lands at Celukan Bawang.
Wisnju confirmed that the PLTU
Celukan Bawang was largely

ready to go with
generators and fuel tanks
already installed, and ready
for commissioning.
Wisnju added: "I don't
want to fault PLN because
we understand the problem
of building the high-voltage
power line network is not yet
completed. But this is one
factor why we cannot quickly
start operations. If the
network of PLN is
completed, the production of
electrical power can
commence."
In addition to the failure to
complete the high-voltage power
lines leading into the PLTU
Celeukan Bawang, PLN is also
unable at this time to provide the
20 kilovolts of power needed for
the new plant in North Bali to
undertake operational testing
prior ro full commissioning.
GEB and PLN are currently
in discussions to find a solution
on the inability to supply the 20
kilovolts of power in order that
operations at PLTU Celukan
Bawang can commence in
December.

GRITTY Hawthorn

Woodward polled in nine
matches and was named best on
ground four times, averaging 23
disposals and six tackles during
the regular season.
His form warranted his AFL

The trophy is a just reward
for the 21-year-old, whose career

has been plagued by injuries

Drew Petrie says Kangaroos looking forward to


taking on Essendon at MCG in elimination final
NORTH Melbourne veteran Drew Petrie says a
lack of MCG experience will not count against his
side in Saturday night's elimination final against
Essendon.
The Kangaroos have played just twice at the
home of football this season losing to Collingwood
by 35 points in Round 5 and defeating Melbourne by 41
in Round 14.
While conceding that playing on the 'G does pose
different dilemmas as compared to the Roos' home
ground of Etihad Stadium, Petrie said he didn't see that
as an important factor leading in to the weekend's
game.
I think we're all pretty happy to be playing at the
'G this week, Petrie said.
It's the home of footy, it's where the big dance is
in four weeks time. So hopefully we'll get a win this
week, get some practice there there's nothing better
than running out on to the MCG in front of 70,000
people so I'm looking forward to that on Saturday
night.
North has played just six games at the MCG in
the past four seasons, winning three, as opposed to
Etihad Stadium where it has played 51 games in four
seasons for 33 wins.

The dimensions are bigger, there's more space


and requires more running, Petrie said of the MCG.
And obviously just being an outdoor stadium it
demands your skill level to be up and better than it is
when you're playing under the roof.
I don't think it's going to favour either side, but it's
certainly different than playing at Etihad.
Having made the shift from St Kilda last offseason, Nick Dal Santo said featuring in September
again made the move all the more worthwhile.
In regards to playing finals, absolutely, Dal
Santo said.
It's been a long year, this is what we've all been
working towards and it's finally here.
It's been coming for a little while, you go through
that winter period where it's a little bit tough from weekto-week, but it's really exciting now not only for me but
the whole footy club.
I'm really looking forward to the weekend.
North Melbourne players completed a light
training session indoors on Tuesday morning ahead of
their main session of the week at Arden Street on
Wednesday afternoon.

Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie names squad for


Test with Springboks in Perth
WARATAHS halves Nick
Phipps and Bernard Foley
have been promoted into
the Wallabies starting
side for Saturday night's
Te s t a g a i n s t t h e
Springboks in Perth.
Wallabies coach Ewen
M c K e n z i e o n Tu e s d a y
unveiled Foley and Phipps as
two of four changes to his
starting side for the
Patersons Stadium clash
with James Hanson's inclusion at
hooker the only fresh face in the
pack.
The Reds rake is Australia's
fourth-string hooker with Nathan
Charles joining Stephen Moore and
Tatafu Polota-Nau on the injured list
following the Wallabies' disastrous
51-20 loss to the All Blacks in
Bledisloe II.
Saturday night's match will
also see Tevita Kuridrani return at
outside centre with Adam AshleyCooper shifting to the wing after Pat
McCabe's injury-forced retirement.
But the biggest talking point is
Foley's inclusion at No.10 with
McKenzie reverting to the 10-12
combination with Matt Toomua at
inside centre that was so
successful against France in June.

Nic White and Kurtley Beale


drop back to the bench after starting
both Bledisloe encounters.
McKenzie said the selection
of the Waratahs halves would give
the Wallabies the best chance of
beating the Springboks.
While the size of the
challenge isn't any easier this week,
the South Africans do play a unique
brand of rugby which we will need to
adjust to, McKenzie said.
That's reflected in our
selections somewhat, where we feel
the partnership of Nick and Bernard
will best suit the style of game we'll
be trying to play.
They've got a proven
combination at a Super Rugby level
and we look forward to seeing how
that translates into the Test
environment.

It's naturally
disappointing for the two
guys who missed out on
the starting team in Nic
and Kurtley, but the reality
is we have a lot of good
players in those
playmaking positions.
We expect them to
respond in a positive
manner and to make an
impact playing an
important role in how we
close out the match.
There are some changes on
the bench as well with Saia Faingaa,
James Horwill and Matt Hodgson all
included in a six-two split.
Needing to combat the
Springboks' physicality in the
forwards, McKenzie has opted for
just two backline reserves in White
and Beale.
Full squad: (15-1) Israel
Folau, Adam Ashley-Cooper, Tevita
Kuridrani, Matt Toomua, Rob Horne,
Bernard Foley, Nick Phipps, Wycliff
Palu, Michael Hooper, Scott Fardy,
Rob Simmons, Sam Carter, Sekope
Kepu, James Hanson, James
Slipper. Res: Saia Faingaa, Pek
Cowan, Ben Alexander, James
Horwill, Scott Higginbotham, Matt
Hodgson, Nic White, Kurtley Beale.

What a find!
19 August 2014
After reading the reviews on TA, we set
out to find this restaurant as I was
hankering for a good curry. After
checking the map it wasn't hard to find
and we are very glad we found it. This
place has only been operating for 8
months and at the moment their menu
is a little limited but after enquiring
about the heat of one of their
advertised dishes, the manager kindly
said they could do a vindaloo or
madras version of that dish if I wanted.
He said they will be gradually
increasing their menu options and are
in the process of organising wine to
add to the beer they currently serve. (I
cheekily suggested they stay away
from the Hattens!). The service was
very friendly and they were helpful in
describing some of the appetisers
which I hadn't seen in Australia. We
really enjoyed the food and they
catered to our (heat) tastes (I like mine
spicy). The restaurant decor is very
contemporary and, very importantly,
the toilets are clean! I would definitely
recommend this little gem, it can only
get better.
18 August 2014
Good choices , beautiful flavours, cold
beer, very clean, friendly and attentive
staff, looks very small from outside but
plenty of room inside . Good value for
money .Aalo Gobhi is superb . Will
definitely go back.

Ahead of this weekend's Italian Grand Prix,


Ricciardo has been awarded this year's Trofeo Lorenzo
Bandini in recognition of his speed, his on-track
achievements, and his approach to the sport.
The honour roll of previous winners reads like a list
of the sport's modern greats, with Michael Schumacher,
Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen and Ricciardo's Red
Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel all previous recipients.
He was presented with the trophy in the main
square of Bandini's home town of Brisighella in the north
of Italy, a stone's throw from the headquarters of
Ricciardo's old Scuderia Toro Rosso team at Faenza.
Hundreds of fans filled the square for the
ceremony, where Ricciardo's arrival was heralded by a
band of drummers and trumpeters dressed in full
medieval costume, along with knights dressed in full
chain mail and armour.
I was quite overwhelmed with the reception I
received at the event. The Italians really love their
motorsport, Ricciardo said.
To be awarded with the Lorenzo Bandini trophy
was an honour and to join the many great drivers on that

and winning attitude off it has earnt him one

list makes me proud.


The award is named after Lorenzo Bandini, Italy's
great Formula 1 hope of the 1960s. Bandini was a Ferrari
driver through and through, rising through the ranks to
become the team leader of the Maranello marque.
An F1 race winner, Bandini also tasted victory in
the Le Mans 24 Hours and the legendary Targa Florio
road race.
His career was cut tragically short in 1967. A fiery
crash late in the Monaco Grand Prix left him with third
degree burns to over 70 per cent of his body. He would
die three days later at just 31 years of age.
His fighting spirit was held dear by his home town,
who first presented the trophy to mark the 25th
anniversary of Bandini's death, but is now awarded
annually to figures within the sport as determined by a
panel of judges.
Ricciardo is the second Australian to be awarded
the trophy, following in the footsteps of Mark Webber in
2006.
After being presented with the trophy by the mayor
of Brisighella and Bandini's surviving 80-year-old sister
Gabriella, he was awarded a medal of the town of
Ficarra, the little community in Sicily where Ricciardo's
grandparents and father lived before emigrating to
Australia.

Found in abdomen 36 years after pregnancy


Doctors in India have removed
the skeleton of a foetus that had
been inside a woman for 36
years in what is believed to be
the world's longest ectopic
pregnancy.
The woman, 60, became
pregnant at the age of 24 but
suffered a miscarriage because the
foetus had been growing outside of
her uterus.
The woman, from a poor rural
area of central India, was "terrified"
of having surgery to remove the
remains of the foetus at the time and
instead sought medication for the
pain at a local clinic.
Although the pain gradually
subsided, it returned years later and
forced the woman to seek medical
help at a hospital in western India.
"She came to us complaining

of pain in the abdomen," Dr


Murtaza Akhtar, head of surgery at
the NKP Salve Institute of Medical
Sciences in the city of Nagpur, said.
Doctors felt a lump on the
woman's lower right abdomen and
feared it could be cancer but further
tests and scans revealed a calcified
mass.
"Once we saw the scans, our
first reaction was 'what are we
dealing with?' It was actually a
matured skeleton encapsulated in a
calcified sac," Dr Akhtar said.
"A 60-year-old woman with a
foetus lying in her abdomen for 36
years is a medical marvel. It's
something we had never heard
about."
The doctors searched
medical literature and discovered a
woman in Belgium who had retained
the remains of a foetus for 18 years

following an ectopic
pregnancy, the longest they could
find on record.
An ectopic pregnancy occurs
when the egg implants outside the
uterus, usually in the fallopian tubes.
A team of doctors
successfully performed surgery to
remove the mass.
"She was shocked when she
first got to know what had
happened. But she is fine now and is
recuperating," Dr Akhtar said.

Jokowi toughens

President-elect Joko Widodo

industry in Bali to develop in
a sustainable manner so as
not to damage the local

Bali must have a clear
differentiation from other
destinations. We must avoid
damaging Bali in developing
tourism, said Jokowi.
Especially in the southern
part of Bali, it is too crowded due to
tourism development, he added.
Jokowi also expressed his
appreciation for the traditional
villages and temples in Bali,
suggesting that they are key
assets that must be conserved.
We must be cautious of
clearing land to provide for space
for further development of the

Indonesia eyes 12.7m tourist arrivals in 2019


Indonesia is aiming for higher
growth in foreign tourism within
the next five years as the
Tourism and Creative Economy
Ministry has set a target of 12.7
million foreign visitors by 2019,
a 25 percent increase from the
estimated 9.5 million inbound
tourists this year.
That was according to the
ministry's 2015-2019 National MidTerm Development Plan (RPJMN)
draft, marketing director general
Esthy Reko Astuti said.
In the past five years, the
number of tourists has increased 35
percent from 7 million in 2010 to an
expected 9.5 million in 2014,
according to data from the ministry.
Backed by this significant
growth, we've decided to increase
the growth in foreign tourist arrivals
[in the next five years] from 20
percent in the previous RPJMN to
25 percent,

The ministry will boost


tourism promotion in Middle Eastern
countries, as recent data shows that
four member countries of the
Organization of Islamic Cooperation
(OIC) top the list of the fastest
growing numbers of tourists arriving
in the archipelago in the first four
months of this year.
Bahrain topped the list with
73.56 percent growth, followed by
Saudi Arabia (54.42 percent), the
United Arab Emirates (49.58
percent) and Egypt (38.07 percent).

Overall, foreign tourist


arrivals in Indonesia grew 10.6
percent from January to April
this year compared with the
same period last year to 2.9
million tourists, according to
data from the Central Statistics
Agency (BPS).
We have to generate
more tourists from these
countries because based on our
experience, when a Middle
Eastern airline opens direct flights to
Indonesia, they tend to attract more
outbound tourists from Indonesia
rather than inbound tourists to
Indonesia,
The seat capacity of foreign
airlines that serve routes from
Middle Eastern countries to
Indonesia amounts to 52,994 seats
per week, while that of Indonesian
airlines amounts to 18,424 seats per
week, based on data from stateowned airport operator Angkasa
Pura II.

Indonesians are the Happiest People in the World


In a survey conducted by Ipsos,
a global independent market
research company, Indonesia
came out on top as the
happiest people in the world. I
don't place much faith in these
kinds of polls, but it is nice to
see Indonesia at the top of a
table, instead of down the
bottom in these kinds of
surveys.
If money cannot buy
happiness, well this is certainly true
in Indonesia, where there is a
massive divide between rich and
poor. At least next time someone
asks why I want to live in Indonesia, I
can say that they are the happiest
people in the world.
While many people have
problems with money, trying just to
survive from one day to the next,
people will usually greet you with a
smile. So what makes Indonesians
happy? I don't know the exact
reason, but if I had to come up with
some reasons, I would say it comes
down to: family, community,
tolerance and religion. All of which of
course are inter-connected.

Most Indonesians marry at a


fairly young age and then don't
waste any time having babies. Often
the grand-parents take care of the
kids, so the parents can work. There
is no government welfare, so there
is no choice but for families to take
care of each other, even into old
age. It is for this reason why couples
try to have a lot of kids, so they can
provide support later in life, when
they become too old to work.
There is a strong sense of
community in Indonesia, wherever
you go in the country. Around 60 per
cent of the population live in villages,
where they rely on agriculture for
sustenance. The village is an
extension of the family in itself,
where everyone knows each other.
Houses tend to be small, so people

The

spend a great deal of time


outside, where it is also cooler. With
not a lot of entertainment options,
people sit around and do what
Indonesians love the most chatting.
Maybe because people are happy to
communicate openly, it is easier to
solve problems.
With Indonesian people living
close together, I believe they are
very tolerant of other people. If a
neighbor is playing loud music,
there is tendency to accept it, rather
than openly complain about the
noise. If you open a newspaper, of
course you will find many examples
of intolerance to other people, but I
do believe that this is still a small
minority.
When I mention religion, I
know many people will point out the
many conflicts it creates, but the
positive aspect that I believe it has,
is that it brings people together,
which relates back to community.
Please tell me what you think,
what do you think makes
Indonesians the happiest people in
world? Or is this survey inaccurate?

Is there such a thing as 'negative motivation'? It could be argued that an


action that has been fuelled by negativity, anger or resentment is therefore
negative or counterproductive. Yet, the person doing it believes what
they're doing is positive and necessary, even if they themselves can see
how it can be perceived as negative! This week, allow yourself to be
motivated in the way you feel you are being motivated. You might have
reason to question your reasons for following an urge but can trust that it
intended to bring about a very positive outcome.

When something doesn't make sense and we want it to make sense, we


find ways of attaching logic to that which appears illogical or nonsensical.
We dismiss what doesn't 'add up' and focus instead on what we know is
based on fact or holds some sense of reality. That, in itself, is sensible.
With that in mind, look closely at the nonsensical situation you're trying to
fathom this week. There is a grain of sensibility within it. Don't invest too
much time focusing on what doesn't make sense. Look instead at what
you know to be truthful and accurate.

Scorpio Oct 24 - Nov 22

If you had a jury at your disposal and were able to explain your case clearly
and honestly, how do you think a jury would respond? For some time, you
have been aware of injustice in an area of your world and have, over time,
likely convinced yourself that you were instrumental if not integral to
causing it. That's why it would be helpful for you to receive an unbiased
opinion. This week brings the delightful discovery that you don't have as
much reason to be apologetic as you believed. Prepare to have your faith in
justice restored.

Enthusiasm sells. Even the most negative and reticent person can find
themselves 'buying into' or agreeing with someone who makes a point
with enough enthusiasm. It's as if the enthusiastic person knows
something the rest of us don't and manages to encourage us to take a
quick glimpse into the world they are so enthusiastic about. This week,
aggression will get you nowhere where making a point where winning
someone over is concerned but heartfelt belief definitely will. Someone
just wants to see for themselves how much you believe in what they need
you to believe in.

Everyone has different pain thresholds. What might be agonizing to one


person is a mild irritation to another. With that in mind, the coming week
presents you with an interesting challenge. A situation can be painful or,
with the right attitude, can be a positive development. If you're willing to see
it as the latter, then the sky insists you'll see what transpires as mildly
irritating and brief. There is no need to make it any more than that. Summon
optimism and all will be fine.

There's something pictorial about us being described as 'captains of our


own destinies'. We steer personal crafts through both choppy and still
waters. We learn how to identify rocky shorelines from a distance. We
also learn how to set sails to maximize help strong winds blowing in the
right direction can provide. That's why it's important to recognize now
how much control you do have in an area you might be feeling rudderless
within. This week brings an opportunity to set sail in a very new direction.

Cancer Jun 23 - Jul 23


We are told 'he who hesitates is lost'. Sometimes, there's nothing wrong
with hesitation, especially if we believe good reason exists to be cautious.
As one of the most intuitive signs, you learned long ago to trust what your
instincts tell you. This week, whilst it is undoubtedly worth heeding what
they're telling you about a need to be cautious, avoid a tendency to become
too cautious. A situation needs to move forward and you're superbly placed
to make progress. Just don't allow reticence to replace proactivity. Be brave
and take a much needed step forward.

'Whistle while you work'. Such was advice given by Snow White with the
help of various forest-dwelling creatures. Whether or not we see certain
tasks or obligations as enjoyable or downright depressing depends upon
our attitude toward what we're undertaking. You have an option this
week. You can smile and take on a duty or obligation that doesn't fill you
with inspiration or allow yourself to become despondent and resentful.
Do the former and you'll make light work of whatever it is. A small change
in attitude will bring some impressive results.

The Cowardly Lion in 'The Wizard of Oz' was an expert at creating reasons
not to do something. His reasons were always fuelled by fear. His ability to
create reasons was so sharp that he probably scared himself knowing how
good he was at creating them. We all create reasons not to do something if
fear plays any part in the plan and, this week, you're being encouraged to
face a fear and take a brave step forward in some way. Ignore any reasons
you can identify for not doing something. Focus instead on the one major
reason why you must.

We are sometimes easily persuaded by others. Much depends on how


skilful they are at persuasion. If we're given a list of practical and
believable reasons to do or not do something, then that's usually good
enough for us. Things become more complex when we try to convince
ourselves of something. We identify many reasons but will disregard
what our conscience is telling us. It's your conscience not someone else
that you need to be listening to this week. Trust the message your
conscience and intuition are trying very hard to convey to you.

Virgo Aug 24 - Sep 23


Within gadget and appliance manuals is a 'troubleshooting' section. If
something isn't working properly, then manufacturers often include a list of
the most likely problems, what's causing them and what can be done to fix
them. Wouldn't it be helpful if we had access to such manuals where people
are concerned? You appear keen to put something right between you and
another. To do this, you need to identify the problem correctly. This week
offers a chance to identify and easily implement a solution. Someone
needs careful handling but you can do a superb job of doing this.

Pisces Feb 20 - Mar 20


Some people will always see a half empty glass as half empty. They
prefer to focus on what's missing than what they have available. Such
people even overlook the fact that the situation would be even less
desirable if they were dealing with a completely empty glass. With that in
mind, how might you be looking at a seemingly less than desirable
situation? This week brings a very good reason to start feeling optimistic if
you're prepared to recognize it. Prepare to discover that a situation you
believed to be cut and dried or set in stone is more flexible than you
thought.

The following is a myth busting info page covering different songs


or bands each week chosen by one of our many loyal readers,
Please EnjoyBad Company Feel Like Making Love

Original Paul Rodgers era (19731982)


There was a rumour that singer Paul Rodgers was so
enamored with the Jeff Bridges film Bad Company that he
chose to name his band after it, but Rodgers, in an interview
with Spinner.com, explained that the idea came from a book
of Victorian morals that showed a picture of an innocent kid
looking up at an unsavory character leaning against a
lamppost. The caption read "beware of bad company."
Bad Company consisted of four seasoned musicians: two
former members of Free, singer Paul Rodgers and drummer
Simon Kirke; former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs;
and ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell. The band signed to
Swan Song Records/Atlantic Records in North America, and
with Island Records in other countries. (Island Records had
until that time been the UK home to both Free and King
Crimson, as well as to Mott the Hoople for their first four
albums; Atlantic, in turn, released King Crimson's and Mott's
early albums in the US through a licensing agreement with
Island). Atlantic/Warner Music would later acquire the nonNorth American rights to the band's catalogue.

Run With the Pack was Bad Company's third platinumcertified album, reaching No. 5 on the Billboard chart and
featured the cover song "Young Blood," which peaked at No.
20 on the Pop charts. Bad Company scheduled a British tour
with the band of former Free member Paul Kossoff, Back
Street Crawler, to support Bad Company's 1976 album Run
With the Pack as well as a new album by Back Street Crawler.

This double headline tour was scheduled to commence on 25


April 1976 but was halted due to Kossoff's death on 19 March
1976.
1979's Desolation Angels did better than its predecessor,
giving the band their latest Top 5 platinum-selling album.
Desolation Angels also embellished the group's sound with
synthesisers and strings. The album reached No. 3 on the
Billboard charts and again had two charting singles: "Rock 'n'
Roll Fantasy" at No. 13 and "Gone Gone Gone" at No. 56.
"Feel Like Makin' Love"
Baby, when I think about you, I think about love
Darlin', don't live without you and your love
If I had those golden dreams of my yesterdays
I would wrap you in the Heaven 'til I'm dyin' on the way

Feel like makin'


Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love to you
Baby, if I think about you, I think about love
Darlin' if I live without you, I live without love
And if I had the sun and moon, we will shine them
I would give you both night and day of satisfyn'
Feel like makin'
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love
Feel like makin' love to you
And if I had those golden dreams of my yesterdays
I would wrap you in the Heaven 'til I'm dyin' on the way

The 1974 debut album Bad Company was an international


hit, eventually going platinum. The album peaked at No. 1 on
Billboard's Pop Albums chart (North America) and included
two singles that reached the top 20, "Can't Get Enough" at
No. 5 in 1974 and "Movin' On" at No. 19 in early 1975.
In 1975 their second album, Straight Shooter, reached No. 3
on Billboard's Pop Albums chart and also went platinum. The
album also spawned two hit singles, "Good Lovin' Gone Bad"
at No. 36 and the slower "Feel Like Makin' Love" at No. 10.

Bad Company
Bad Company are an English rock super group founded in
1973 by two former Free band members singer Paul Rodgers
and drummer Simon Kirke as well as Mott the Hoople
guitarist Mick Ralphs and King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell.
Peter Grant, who managed British rock band Led Zeppelin,
agreed to manage the band (he managed Bad Company until
1982, when Swan Song Records folded). Bad Company
enjoyed great success throughout the 1970s. Many of their
singles, such as "Bad Company", "Can't Get Enough", "Good
Lovin' Gone Bad", and "Feel Like Makin' Love", remain
popular with rockers of both the past and present, and their
hits remain staples of classic rock radio.

BHP Steel, feeling it was time for


a shakeup, hired a new CEO.
The new boss was determined to rid the
company of all slackers.
On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a
guy leaning against a wall.
The room was full of workers and he
wanted to let them know that he meant
business
He asked the guy, "How much money do
you make a week?"
A little surprised, the young man looked at
him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"
The CEO said, "Wait right here."
He walked back to his office, came back in
two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in
cash and said, "Here's four weeks' pay.
Now GET OUT and don't come back."
Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO
looked around the room and asked, "Does
anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball
did here?"
From across the room a voice said, "Pizza
delivery guy from Domino's."

investigate the screams, snidely suggesting Laksmana


perhaps seeks advantage in the death of her beloved Rama.
Insulted at Sita's insinuations, Laksmana departs the stage
leaving Sita utterly alone in the forest.
Scene 2
The evil King Rahwana appears, intent on kidnapping Sita.
His initial attempts are unsuccessful causing him to
transform himself into Bhagawan - an elderly man begging
water from the Goddess Sita. When Site returns with the old
man's water she is kidnapped by Rahwana still posing as the
aged Bhagawan.
Sita's screams for assistance are heard by the mythical
Garuda bird flying nearby who responds by trying aid the
captured Goddess. The Garuda's efforts to assist, however,
are thwarted when Rahwana shoots the bird's wing with an
arrow. The dastardly Rahwana then brings Sita to Alengka
Pura - his personal palace.
Scene 3
Meanwhile, Rama, his loyal servant and Laksmana have
become lost in the forest of the Ayodya Palace. Longing for
his beloved wife Sita, who is now in the palace of the evil
Rahwana, Rama seeks the assistance of the White Monkey
Hanoman to deliver his ring to the captive Sita as sign of their
enduring love.
Scene 4
Accompanied by the demoness niece of Rahwana, Trijata,
Sita now spends her days lamenting the absence of her
husband Rama.
Later, at the Alengka Palace, the White Monkey Hanoman
appears, declaring himself the Emissary of Prince Rama
and presents Sita with the ring of her husband. Sita, in turn,
presents flowers to Hanoman to be given to Rama, together
with a message imploring for urgent rescue. Wasting no
time, Hanoman wreaks havoc on the Alengka Palace,
destroying much of Rahwana's princely estate. In retaliation,
the guards of the palace capture Hanoman who is bound
and prepared to be burnt at the stake. Calling on his
considerable reserves of magical power, Hanoman escapes
and rescues Sita to be returned to Rama.

The iconic Kecak dance, performed by large groups of


shirtless men chanting in rhythmic counterpoint as other
dances presents scenes from the ancient Mahabrata, is a
staple of the Balinese dance repetroire that is enjoyed by
thousands of Bali visitors each day.
Performed by groups of tens or more men - oftentimes
numbering as much as 150, each segment of the kecak is
punctuated by choruses of chanted "cak...cak....cak"
(pronounced as 'chak,chak, chak') .
Dance aficionados in Bali argue endlessly that the haunting
sounds of the kecak represents the sounds of an army of
primates in the service of monkey-like warrior Vanara;
duplicates the percussive sounds sounds of the drums and
gongs of a gamelan orchestra (gamelan suara); imitates the
sound of the household gecko lizard or, at its most basic
level, draws its inspiration from the "cak" singing of farmers
heard in the evening from roadside arak stands across Bali..
When we sat all these alternative descriptions before an
aged Bali dance master, the old man scratched his chin and
suggested that each explanation of the unique sound of the
Kecak, considered individually or severally, might well be
true.
Not subject to debate is that the fact that Kecak dance
presents a scene from the ancient Ramayana tale of the
battle between good and evil within the context of the
abduction of Sita and the ensuing battle by Vanara against
the evil King Rahawana.
Setting aside the hour or so to attend a Kecak dance during
a Bali trip should form part of every visitors "must do" list.
Village-based dance groups present dances on an almost
daily basis across Bali, with one of the most popular
presentations found at sunset each evening at the Uluwatu
Temple in South Bali.
Those contemplating taking in a kecak might find the follow
plot synopsis useful in following the story line.
Scene 1
Rama, Sita and Laksmana enter the dance area where the
Kecak chorus of men, sitting in concentric circles have
literally "set the stage" by singing a mesmerizing chanted
prologue. As the three dancers circulate a golden deer
appears, begging capture by Prince Rama. In pursuit of the
golden deer, Rama leaves Sita and Laksmana alone on the
dance floor.
Suddenly a scream for "help" is heard, prompting SIta to
