    by Tasa Nugraza Barley What is it with Indonesians, especially the young Indonesians, that we love to nongkrong so much?

It’s so hard that I don’t think Oxford English Dictionary has that word in English. “To chill out” might be the right expression in English for the word nongkrong. For Indonesians, as I know it,…

After previously focusing on curated online learning system ever since it was established in August 2013, the startup now decided to change its focus to audio mobile app. It seems that the JDFI program, which was held in Singapore from March 19, 2014 to July 7, 2014, has contributed heavily to the startup’s decision.

    Photographs by Alila Villas Soori and Petty Elliott. Written by Petty Elliott for Now Jakarta 2014. Throughout our lives, there are stimulants – things that energise us such as food, sport, scenery and even simple colours. When we digest pure, natural, wholesome food that tastes delicious, we feel good, having built up our reserves of energy. A session of yoga, a morning jog, or a game of tennis is a great feeling as we expend energy. Witnessing a beautiful sunset, fresh flowers or breathtaking scenery gives us a mental boost, and the appreciation of life itself. Great feelings bring out…

    Written by Jayne Heaton for Style Magazine Winter issue 2013. The Alila Villas Soori resort on Bali’s southwestern coast defies the typical standards of luxury. Over decadence and wild embellishment are not what you will find here. Instead, guests will discover a simple kind of lavishness: an assembly of comfort with a discerning attention to detail. In Bali there is no need for over-zealous decoration-the mountainous backdrop, black-sand beaches and startlingly blue oceanic stage roar loudly enough on their own. The estate, one of renowned architect Soo K. Chan’s most…

If you need an escape from the sweaty street-scape of Kemang, duck up to the fifth floor of The Edge where you can sip cool beers and swim under hibiscus trees while overlooking the city below. We wandered up on a Sunday afternoon, where only a few people were dotted around the white day beds, playing on Instagram and taking selfies. Five of us nestled up in the back corner, and ordered a round of beers;…

    Taking a taxi in Bali can be a daunting experience for newcomers to the island, what with the similar look and color of these rental vehicles, the difference in currency and the constant barrage of honks from drivers (personally, if I need a taxi I will seek one out proactively, negating the need for a shrill honk thank you very much). Thankfully though, catching a cab can be quite a simple task if you follow our expert tips listed below to help you navigate the local taxi scene here in Bali.
