    5 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    I get this question a lot. From my own friends, during interviews. I wonder why. :DThe thing is, no matter how good you try to be, some people will just find a reason to project their negativity, which I think, are actually grown out of their own insecurities. Therefore, see the bigger picture. All the hate comments you're receiving are actually not personal to you - it's all about the haters themselves and what is missing inside of them. So kill the haters with kindness. And accept that in life, there will always exist people who are not very nice, but that is probably because they need…

Ketika apa yang lu lakukan dapat dilihat oleh orang lain setiap waktu, manner / kelakuan seperti apa yang akan lu perlihatkan? Bukankah itu yang terjadi setiap waktu antara hamba dan Yang Maha Melihat? Photo by Photo: Jaap Buitendijk – © TM and © 2014…

    Small waves roll on top of one another crashing gently into the grey toned sand. The sound is repetitive and calming and if it wasn’t for the regular but soft hum of motorbikes riding across the beach and on the dirt road behind you, it would feel as though you’re almost in complete isolation. …there’s certainly nothing showy or over the top about Bali Eco Beach House, just simple charm. A young Balinese boy floats back and forth in the water, he’s fishing in the shallow depths of the sea for what seems like hours. And therein lies its charm…time feels…

With their successful lives, their families and friends have come to depend on them. Their western style of working like a bule - a foreigner, has not affected their traditional Hindu way of life. On the contrary, they are devout in practicing their belief, despite becoming outsiders within their community when they break the rules. Life has not always been easy and although they have their dreams, new hurdles keep coming. Being a Balinese Hindu woman means…

Imagining what it’s really like might take more effort, especially if you’ve never ventured outside of classic travel accommodation — the typical well-lit, air-conditioned room in a luxe resort or old faithful family-run B&B that many of us are loath to leave behind.

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 equally developed as the budget one. So put on those high heels and red lipstick, dress up your date in a nice…
