    Beberapa hari lalu gue menyadari sesuatu yang buat gue menarik saat ngebersihin lantai dari cat yang menempel ke lantai menggunakan thinner. Yang gue lakukan awalnya adalah menuangkan thinner lalu menggosok lantai dengan sangat keras menggunakan sikat: cat-nya ternyata ngga hilang-hilang. Setelah beberapa menit, gue coba lakukan hal berbeda: ngeggosoknya ngga terlalu ditekan, tapi gesekannya diperbanyak. Ternyata jadi cepet banget hilangnya. Ternyata kalau caranya salah, mau usaha sekeras apapun hasilnya ngga terlalu maksimal. Tapi kalau caranya benar, usahanya bisa lebih sedikit tapi…

Keen to escape the busy crowds of Seminyak, tourist markets and the never ending strip of same-same resorts, I anticipated Alila Ubud like water in the desert. Driving through Ubud, a small town which is known for its exquisite cuisine, resorts are many but far between. Turning in to the long driveway, passing rice fields and chilli plants, you arrive at a divide in the Ubud valley, which is…

    Exploring remote areas of the planet was a childhood dream for me and one that I was determined to realise. There are hundreds of places that fit that criteria but few that can boast the outstanding beauty of Raja Ampat, located just off the shores of Papua in Indonesia. I had read stories of explorers such as Alfred Russel Wallace who played a major role in the discovery of numerous animal species when he made this very same journey over 150 years ago and published his expedition in “The Malay Archipelago”. Then, there were the Blair brothers who, much like I did, wanted to retrace…

He’s particularly fond of the chocolate cookie variety and can always be found with a full box on his desk, in his bag, or in the fridge. It was his birthday recently and he received not one, but two chocolate cakes at the office. Saying that he likes chocolate is the understatement of the century, it would be like saying that bees like flowers, when in truth they couldn’t survive without them. With this bit…

Come along and follow the Bali Reporter as she goes where no Bali Reporter has gone before… This weekend we did the impossible…and no, I’m not talking about trekking up Mount Batur, a 1,717m tall volcano, although we did that too. I’m talking about waking up at 1 am. Brutal on both the body and the soul, it was a necessary evil in order to make it up Batur in time to see the sun rise over Bali. The…

    You may come to Bali for the beaches, nightclubs, resorts and spas. You might be here to surf, or to practice yoga, or just to sip on a long cold drink as you take in a view of the rice fields. Whatever your reason for visiting the Island of the Gods, one of its biggest delights is the local people. Apart from the act of buying (or refusing to buy) something, many visitors never seem to start a conversation with the locals – which is a pity as Bali must have the world’s friendliest people. But where can you start? How can you get to know a stranger in Indonesia if you have nothing in…

But to your surprise, you started to miss all that glam and champagne much faster than you expected. Luckily, Bali is the island of contrasts, and the posh part of island life is as well developed as the budget one. So put on those high heels and red lipstick, dress up your date in a nice…
  • Puncak Penulisan: where history was written

    Mark Chaves
    18 Mar 2015 | 3:01 pm
    Bali, in a sense, is an interesting outlier for many special reasons. For example, Bali is the only predominately Hindu island in the Republic of Indonesia. Indonesia has more Muslim inhabitants than any other country and is the worlds largest archipelago. To understand how Bali kept its strong ties with Hinduism, we would need to start at the beginning of Balis history itself. Where does this history start? It is said that Balis history starts with Balis oldest temple. Bali’s oldest temple is still one of Bali’s best-kept secrets. The temple is basically still off the beaten path,…

It’s not only because of the magic of the Balinese people or the picturesque landscapes. We are especially blessed because we have the privilege of celebrating our third, yes third, New Year of 2015 (Western New Year and Chinese New Year being the first two). However, this isn’t just any run of the mill New Year celebration. The Balinese New Year or Nyepi, is a day of silence that is preceded by a day of…
