BID FAREWELL TO 2015


Om Swastiastu...
It is hard to believe that another year will soon pass. It feels as if it was only yesterday that
our journey into 2015 began, and now, in the blink of an eye, well soon say good-bye
to another year. For some people this is the time to contemplate and ask questions like,
Have I made my dreams come true? or Is this year better than the last one? or What
should my resolutions be for next year?
Lets put those questions aside for a while, and remember that you deserve to close
2015 splendidly, especially if youre spending the end of the year on this island. South
Bali is going to be even more alive with a massive number of parties for sure, and thats

dancing is a huge part of our daily

that culture should be part of our

Taksu is the ability to translate
artistry into a performance.
It is not only about amazing
body movements and a good
understanding of music and
expression, but also about putting
your soul into the dance. Taksu
takes a dancer to a different
level of art. With Taksu, a dance
performance is not just a show but
also an inspiration. It somehow
makes the audience enchanted by
the performance and able to feel the
emotion of the dance.
Some people say taksu is a

Whether you are embarking on a spiritual pilgrimage


or just to looking to take a tour, here are some tips to
help make the most of your experience:
To visit the temples listed above, one day will
denitely not be enough. It will take approximately
three or four days to visit all of these temples.
Consult with your travel agent to get the perfect routes.
If you are planning to go to the Lempuyang temple,
dedicate an entire day for the trip, considering the
thousands of stairs you will have to climb.
Prepare yourself with traditional Balinese prayer
attire because it is forbidden to enter these holy places

28

without it. Usually locals near the temples can provide


you with attire to rent for your visit.
You will see a box on the temples with two words
written: Dana Punia. This is a charity box where you can
place money. The money from the charity box is used for
temple maintenance. There is no rule on the amount that
you can give it really depends on your willingness. If
you dont feel like donating, it is not a problem.
For those who just want to visit (versus undertaking a
spiritual pilgrimage), ask your tour guide to provide you
with offerings, or you can simply go to the market to buy
some prior to your trip.

HIGHER THAN
THE CLOUDS
Once upon a time, about 15 million years
ago, the Australian tectonic plate crashed
into the Eurasian, causing the island of Flores
to rise from the ocean. Chains of volcanoes
emerged creating a volcanic arc, and this
island soon became a part of an archipelago
in the Ring of Fire. Stretched out over 354
kilometers, the snake-shaped island of
Flores has 14 volcanoes that are still active
today dangerous but spectacular, perilous
but picturesque. There are nine regencies
in Flores, each of them has more than one
volcano with different shapes, sizes, and
characteristics some have large empty
craters while others are lled with water that
then have become lakes.
Kelimutu (1639 meters) is one of the
most popular mountains in Flores, as it is
surrounded by a three-colored lake that
changes color on an irregular basis, while
Inerie (2229 meters) is shaped like a Gyza
pyramid and is known as one of the most
beautiful volcanoes in Indonesia and home to
traditional villages. Far to the east is where a
double volcano lies, and its called Lewotobi
(1652 meters and 1578 meters) which the
locals recognize as a husband and wife. And
if you want to witness the sunrise and sunset,
go to Ile Ape (1449 meters) the view is
unforgettable.

HOPE FOR THE CHILDREN


Last October, the Westin Resort Nusa Dua proudly presented HOPE, an
uplifting musical concert featuring two talented young Indonesia singers, Citra
Scholastika and Bastian Steel. Held at Mangupura Hall, the concert ended
beautifully as the singers collaborated with the choir from the Farabi Music
School. HOPE was hosted to support the UNICEF Check Out for Children
Program that provides vaccinations and education for underprivileged
children in the Asia Pacic region. www.westin.com/bali

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 uids. 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.
