    this issue will be the last edition of Balibuzz to reach your hands. I would like to express my gratitude to our readers, the communities, as well as our friends in the private sector, who have been supporting Balibuzz over the last two years.

    this farewell does not mean that Bali no longer occupies an important position in the realm of The Jakarta Post. Instead, the closure of Balibuzz is being carried out in order to enable us to shift our resources to revamp and expand jplus, our premier nationwide lifestyle and travel publication.

    this means that there will be more stories on Bali published and circulated at the national, good bye and see you soon!

    every year, the villagers of tenganan pegringsingan in karangasem celebrate a month-long religious festival called Usaba Sambah, to respect lord Indra, the god of war in hindu mythology.

    among the rituals held during the festival is Mekare Kare or perang pandan, where the men of tenganan proudly display their courage in a ritual battle. this year, the ritual took place on june 24 and 25.

    armed with clubs made of thorny pandanus leaves and rattan shields, they took their place

    on an elevated wooden stage to partake in a brief duel, accompanied by the sounds of gamelan played at a fast pace to boost the fighters spirits.

    For a total of three hours each fight lasts only a few minutes but is sufficient to inflict wounds on the participants and even draw blood it is a contest open to all, including boys of all ages. no hard feelings, no hatred, no revenge and no one wins or loses in this fight.

    the only aim of the fight is to shed blood as the ultimate sacrifice for lord Indra.

    Bali is one of the main gateways to Indonesia for global travelers, contributing up to 40 percent of all foreign visitors to the archipelago annually.

    the island serves as a hub, providing direct access to many places across Indonesia, including emerging destinations, so that visitors can explore this vast country with its endless natural and cultural beauty.

    the countrys diverse tourism potential was showcased during the Bali & Beyond travel Fair (BBtF) 2016 last week, which was held for the third year.

    taking place from thursday to saturday, BBtF the only travel and tourism fair in Indonesia brought together 168 sellers

    (exhibitors and tourism operators) and 222 buyers from 30 countries in a single forum, with a transaction value reaching rp 6.8 trillion (Us$516.8 million).

    the participants, consisting of tourism stakeholders from provinces nationwide, had the chance to directly promote the tourism potential of their respective areas to international buyers.

    this business-to-business event was expected to advance the countrys tourist industry through business sessions and direct promotion of best practices in meeting, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (mIce) and leisure management.

    with exhibitors and buyers from numerous countries around the world, the forum

    facilitated pre-scheduled appointments and business sessions for buyers and sellers to negotiate on their long-term leisure and corporate travel needs.

    corporations, travel agents, hotel and resort chains, cruise operators, convention planners, venue operators and travel buyers could leverage the two and a half days of business-to-business sessions to enhance their respective brands in Indonesia and asia-pacific markets.

    participants in this event are all prominent buyers and sellers. we hope they will be able to promote Bali and areas beyond the island, to the world, said ketut ardana, head of the BBtF

    organizing committee. For this years BBtF, the committee

    organized a post tour to several areas in Indonesia, including other parts of Bali, as well as Banyuwangi, komodo island, ntB and toraja, to provide opportunities for the buyers to have first-hand experience of Indonesias attractive destinations.

    as a prominent forum in the travel industry, BBtF is expected to be one of the worlds biggest travel fairs.

    next year, Bali & Beyond travel Fair will be held from june 7 to 11 and south sumatera will be the co-host.

    three inspired individuals, who were gathered by fate, united by a shared vision and enthralled by the endless creative freedom that they find in Bali, founded les Biches in 2012.

    after four years of exploring the market on the island, in jakarta, sydney and Berlin, they opened their first store in Bali.

    situated in the heart of seminyak, on jl. kayu jati right next to the legendary motel mexicola, the eponymous store is the answer for all style-conscious shoppers looking for the perfect outfit to unwind by the beach, drink their sunset martini or dance on a fabulous Bali night out.

    the store showcases les Biches own collection of clothes, bags and accessories, as well as products from other brands that share their vision, including pantainanas, hunt of hounds, love hunter, adiya, les specs luxe and Uslu airlines.

    apart from that, it also offers an ever-changing collection of objets trouvs and the odd collectable high fashion piece.

    les Biches literally means the does (as in female deer), but the term is French slang for girls or girlfriends and loosely translates into the sweethearts or the darlings.

    to emi, andri and stephan, it stands for feminine strength, frivolous wit and a flirty seductiveness. It is a name that allows the designers to dream up an exquisite and always humorous world and offer their own brand of eccentric chic to todays gentlewoman.

    For the opening of the store, les Biches prepared an exciting new summer/Fall 2016 collection, coetum (the latin word for an assemblage of objects, mysteriously referring to local rituals).

    coetum can be a string, a rope and a piece of cable, a fishing buoy and a hook, colored discs and a motherboard and a page ripped out of a book. all play a part in les Biches new collection.

    think of 80s japanese Fashion and how names like Yohji Yamamoto, kawakubo, Issey miyaki and kenzo previewed japanese style to the world.

    minimalist looks, deconstructed sequence, a play on dark and light, the use of little trinkets, as well as the diversity of details emphasized by the monotone is how les Biches interpret their latest collection.

    they continue their aesthetic from previous collections, by playing with transparent materials, silky viscose and oversized volumes. Yet, they manage to elevate it to a whole new level, making it their most elaborate and most awaited collection to date.

    capsule was their first collection, which was launched in 2012. having their own individual projects at the time, designers stephan and emi needed a creative outlet to channel their passions. they started off with simple shapes that were perfect in their details, like embroidery, hand embroidered cross stitch, enlarged paisley that sat on beautiful fabrics, such as cotton, linen and silk. Inspired by the beach culture, they played with semi-transparent materials that represented an airy, yet bold nature of Bali, with a selection of earthy colors.

    les Biches has also launched an online store,, offering worldwide shipping with free shipping throughout Indonesia.

    with a new focus, a story and a distinguished style, les Biches is making its way to becoming the leading fashion style in Indonesia.

    It has long been common practice for families to dump their organic waste in the backyard for pigs or cows to feed on, instead of collecting the waste to create compost. this habit attracts houseflies, rats, cockroaches and many insects.

    many households even dispose of organic waste with their general rubbish, which is then taken to the land fill. some simply burn all their waste.

    estimates claim that 65 percent of waste is organic, 7 percent recyclable (plastic & glass) and the remaining 8 percent is unusable or toxic. current practices are very unhealthy and affect surrounding living conditions.

    to create a healthier environment, rotary club in Bali has taken the initiative to educate local people on how to handle organic food waste using fermentation in an anaerobic system (without oxygen) to turn it into compost.

    the organization has also formed the community-based rotary community corps (rcc), under rotary guidance, to further provide assistance on composting at the community level.

    the target is to select small villages in agricultural regions with a population of not more than 100 families, most of whom are farmers or laborers.

    Bungkulan village in singaraja, in the northern regency of Buleleng, has been selected as the pilot project.

    here, each household has been trained to collect their own organic food and kitchen waste at home and keep it in a plastic container. when the container is full, it is sent to the rcc processing center for the final stage of fermentation in the ground.

    at the processing site, the contents of the boxes, which have been fermenting over the past two weeks, are poured into the trench, mixed with soil then the whole trench is covered with soil.

    It takes a further two weeks for this buried waste to turn into compost, which the local people can then use on their crops instead of buying expensive chemical-based fertilizers.

    this system improves the surrounding area, removes odors, flies and rats and helps to create zero waste by returning all kitchen and food waste to nature.

    with the successful commissioning of this project, rotary aims to expand this system into other villages.

    Visitors curiously inspected the traditional house. the floor was made of a mixture of clay and rice husks, while the lower part of the outer wall was covered with dried cow dung. the upper part was constructed of plaited bamboo sheets topped with a dried grass roof.

    most of the houses in Sade, a four-hectare village inhabited by the indigenous sasak people in central lombok, share similar features. the village has a population of around 700 people, mostly working as farmers and weavers.

    In recent years, Sade has grown into a popular tourist destination as a growing number of visitors wish to see first-hand the unique culture of the people who adhere to Wektu Telu, a syncretic form of Islam, hinduism and animism.

    the steady stream of visitors, which can amount to hundreds of people per day, has opened up a new job opportunity for local people. now, some of them have left the rice fields to offer their services as guides to the visitors.

    proficiency in the english language used to be the primary obstacle for the Sade people wanting to work as guides. nowadays, however, language and history training is held each month and the number of locals becoming tour guides has increased, one tour guide, mahmud, said.

    tourism has also brought buyers for locally made handicrafts and woven cloth. most of

    sades women are accomplished weavers. this is due to the fact that girls are prohibited from getting married before they master the skill of weaving.

    It is a two-hour drive to reach sade from lomboks capital of mataram. Visitors are advised to rent a motorbike or car because public transportation is scarce. Sade lies just 30 minutes drive from the beautiful white-sand kute beach.

    indigenous treatments. the skilled therapists are ready to pamper guests with ultimate relaxation rituals.

    also located within the spa vicinity, the resort provides a fully equipped fitness center, squash and tennis courts to ensure guests can stay fit.

    Dining in a royal setting will bring your authentically Bali experience to absolute perfection. the signature rajas restaurant offers pure Balinese cuisine in a palatial setting.

    established in 2001, the poolside restaurant, located only meters from the beachfront, is designed to reflect the way a Balinese royal family would dine.

    rajas is a place where guests can take home more than just beach memories and standard hotel food and can try a more authentic piece of Bali. rajas menu is based on research in Balinese palaces and villages and is the result of many interviews and taste trials in far-off hamlets.

    rajas cuisine is seriously Balinese fare, unmodified the result of more than a year of taste testing, guest trials and in-house cooking contests. although it serves original Balinese food, rajas is certified as a halal restaurant.

    popular rajas appetizers include the award-winning palem sari ulam (steamed seafood in coconut curry pudding), tum udang (minced prawn and young coconut steamed in banana leaf and served on a seaweed salad with lesser galangal and garlic chili dressing) and other unique specialties.

    Favorite soups including the seafood kuah gedang sareng (fresh jumbo prawns with young green papaya soup).

    the array of main courses on offer are as

    varied as sate gede (oversized barbecued chicken, lamb and beef skewers with long-bean salad and sweet chili coriander dressing), ulam segara mepanggang (grilled baby snapper with shallot, lemongrass and live leaf dressing) and pesan be pasih (lemon basil and tamarind marinated mackerel wrapped in banana leaf and grilled).

    If guests like their meals spicy, as most Balinese do, they can ask for chili sambal prepared and ground tableside using a traditional Balinese mortar and pestle.

    rajas signature dish is bebek or ayam betutu a whole duck or chicken marinated in 16 different spices, wrapped in palm leaves and slow cooked for four hours. It is presented to the guests in a whole piece and then carved at the table.

    the dessert menu includes pisang rai (poached bananas in coconut batter with honey and ginger ice cream), village favorite

    dadar gulung (pandanus leaf pancakes with a jackfruit and palm-sugar filling served with coconut ice cream) and other sweet traditional specialties.

    guests can dine indoors in air conditioning or in a poolside, open-air wooden pavilion that is decorated regally with intricate Balinese carvings. there is also the option of booking a private indoor area with seating for up to eight people.

    all rajas dining paraphernalia was sourced and produced in Bali, except for the crystal glasses. noteworthy are the heavy, solid-brass show plates, cutlery and dulang (food stands), as well as the tablecloths made from brokat (traditional lace material) that is usually used to make Balinese womens blouses.

    Indeed, there is no better place to experience the authentic Balinese heritage and culture on the Island of the gods than the iconic nusa Dua Beach hotel and spa.

    It was not a cold, foggy British night. Instead, it was a humid, tropical night. not the kind of weather shakespeare experienced when he wrote those powerful plays that continue to entertain the world centuries after he passed away.

    Yet, on that humid tropical night, one of his plays was about to be performed at a community hall in abiansemal Dauh Yeh cani village in Badung. It is a village steeped in traditional Balinese performing arts. It boasts topeng (masked theater), wayang (shadow puppet), arja (classical dance drama), calonarang (supernatural horror theater) troupes, as well as scores of different gamelan ensembles.

    the villagers started to fill the hall. all were in simple Balinese attire.

    I heard that foreigners will perform. I have no idea what they will do, a pecalang (traditional guardsmen) said.

    watching western artists perform was not a new thing for the villagers, he assured, because in the past there had been several such performances in the community hall and village temple.

    the melodious sounds of metallophones played by local child musicians marked the opening of the cultural night. Village chief I wayan sutama gave a brief speech, thanking leon rubin, the plays director for bringing the performance to the village, and apologizing that the hall was not packed with a full audience. apparently, the village was to have a major cremation ritual the following day and most of the villagers were busy preparing for it.

    the actors, a mixed group of western and local artists, entered the stage and the play began. It was an adaptation of Cymbeline, shakespeares tragicomic take on power and jealousy inspired by ancient British legends.

    the presence of a narrator and the fact that

    worDs anD photos LUHDE SURIYANI

    all dialogue was in Bahasa made it easier for the audience to understand the two-hour long performance.

    presented by east 15 acting school in essex, the performance involved several big names in Balinese performing arts, including nyoman catra, nyoman sedana and wayan Dibia, as well as young Balinese theatrical actors,

    including Indra parusha and tebo aumbara. It was produced by allegra ceccarelli, while the songs and music were composed by richard Brown. psyche chui designed the lighting and wenhai ma crafted the costumes.

    the play was also performed at Bali arts Festival and agung rai museum of arts (arma).

    gili trawangan, a 15-square kilometer island off lombok, has pristine beaches, stunning underwater beauty, as well as being the perfect distance from crowded cities, thus making any visitor feel liberated instead of marooned.

    one other thing, it also offers the perfect sunset. this is important since a growing number of visitors now have placed getting an impeccable sunset selfie near the top of their must-do list.

    Visitors can travel to gili trawangan from Bali or lombok. a fast boat from padangbay harbor in Bali takes around 1.5 hours. a more expensive option is taking a fast boat from Benoa harbor.

    In lombok, a trip to the island can be booked in Bangsal or teluk nara harbors, with the latter being an increasingly popular option

    due to the close proximity of the pier to the car park. at Bangsal harbor, passengers have to walk for quite some time, or board a cidomo, a horse-drawn cart. a 10-minute speedboat trip to gili trawangan costs around rp 75,000 (Us$5.70).

    cycling is the best way to explore this island and bicycle rental usually costs around rp 80,000 per day.

    as the day draws to its end, groups of cyclists and visitors in cidomo can be seen rushing to the western edge of the island. this is the quieter part of gili trawangan, with only a few cottages dotting the shoreline.

    precisely at 5 p.m., the sun makes its final descent to the horizon and suddenly the blue sky erupts into a juxtaposition of bright colors, from yellow to orange to red. It is a fantastic sunset.

    House of IoCoSituated in the heart of Balis fashion district and shopping mecca,

    Seminyak, on Sunset Road, the House of IOCO emerges with a new vibe and design that echoes comfort yet sophistication through all of its collections.

    House of IOCO Fashion evolved from three basic values Creation, Interaction and Commerce all of which form the companys foundation.

    From its main studio, where ideas are created, House of IOCO translates different inspirations into designs that later come true in various shapes, colors, textures and movements.

    The fashion house also opens its creative doors to personal consultation with an in-house stylist or designer available to create custom-made quality pieces.

    Under the artistic eye of talented designer Monica Ku, House of IOCO has five unique brands that speak for different aspects of design and fashion: IOCO, ONLY BY IOCO, SOOK, MONICA KU and IOCO HOMME.

    For IOCO, Monica has carefully studied the various body shapes of women and their unique personas, then translated this into a well-made collection. IOCO brings functional, pure and simple designs to life through smart pattern

    cutting. This involves draping and shaping with subtle details to achieve a clean and modern finish.

    IOCO represents the diverse personas of women in general through the use of assorted colors from neutral classic tones to bright and bold shades as well as a play on different patterns. The pieces are all unique on their own, but can also be combined to create a more complete look that speaks of timeless simplicity and sophistication at the same time.

    ONLY by IOCO is Monicas personal pick and is an exclusive limited collection. These designs are edgy, refined and even alluring. This line is a

    playground for Monica to express herself through various cuts, shapes and tailoring that are different from IOCO yet still communicate the same concept.

    For the younger or young at heart, SOOK represents fun, vibrant personas through its playful but simple design. The brand plays with colorful prints that create a statement in the modesty of casual wear, the simplicity that runs through the fashion houses soul.

    If fashion is based purely on dreams, this line would be the embodiment of that concept. MONICA KU recreates her own personal dreams into fashion art pieces. Statement looks and haute couture designs are the language of this line that is currently intended to be a showcase of creativity and pure imagination.

    Next to the main IOCO collection, IOCO HOMME is Monicas translation of essential wear for men. The designs are simple, clean and practical; the fabrics amplify a timeless style for modern day gentlemen.

    IOCO HOMME uses similar fabrics to IOCO to complement the main collection, just as a man always balances a woman.

    House of IOCO collections can be purchased at strategically located boutiques around Bali as well as online through major resellers such as Further information about House of IOCO can be found at
