Secret Seminyak & surroundings

Bali’s Seminyak area is a tiny metropolis packed with shops, spas, restaurants and nightclubs, but if you spend a few days there, it can start to get a bit repetitive. World-class fashion brands in Seminyak Do you feel there must be places you are missing out on just because you don't know they are there? Here is a selection of gems that stretch from the scene stealer Seminyak and its surroundings, up to the new center of cool - Canggu. Secret Shopping Bali is paradise in many people’s eyes but especially shoppers. There is an overwhelming choice of furniture, home décor and clothes. There are plenty of designer boutiques but with prices going up in line with Bond Street, it is nice to escape to more chaotic bargain hunting. There are two perfect roads in the area – Jalan 66 for clothes and accessories and Jalan Mertanadi for furniture. There is a lot of choice on Jalan 66 and yes there is a lot of cheap, bad quality clothing but search about and there is plenty of treasure to be found. Best bargains are the sarong wholesalers where you can pick one up from Rp 10,000, and Wiri Coco, the hat shop that has cowrie shell decorated straw hats and multi coloured panamas. There are lots of silk dresses made from sarongs but also silk bikinis -the perfect beach kit for lounging when you hit Pantai 66 at the end of the road. If it is your house that needs a sprucing then head up to Mertanadi, infamously known as Jail Road. Six Brothers has some carefully restored and painted antique Javanese pieces, from subtle to sublime on the color spectrum. There are lots of shops with customized antiques. Further up is D2 Décor, which has an amazing collection of luxuriant bird cages from sparrow to ostrich size. Lots of bargains can still be found in Seminyak with some exploration, just remember to haggle! Bathe Jalan Petitenget is quickly establishing itself as the new Jalan Laksmana (Oberoi). Here you will find Bathe, a classically quirky shop dedicated to the simple art of having good cleaning fun. Annie Pham Ahman, the owner, wanted to go back to the traditions of bath time with frivolity fun thrown in, starting with the basic bar of soap. The establishment prides itself in reintroducing beautiful handmade scented and shaped bars rather than liquids that seem to now dominate the market. Annie says of the products ‘I am not claiming to make anyone twenty years younger, but I want to deliver a quality product with a bit of fun thrown in’. They are all almost completely natural and paraben and paraffin free. The cleansers and body products come in the sensuous ‘Custom Blend’ or are fragrance-free for sensitive skins. There is a range for kids and men, custom blended oils, candles and home ware on top of the face and body concoctions. Read the labels carefully for the twist. Bathe itself is classic and eclectic at the same time. There is an honest elegance in the décor and packaging that sets it apart. It is like stepping out of Seminyak’s dusty pavements into an era when eccentric good taste prevailed. Think Pink Nails Think Pink’s trademark is that it is a New York style nail parlor in Bali. It very much is - even though it is quite well hidden down Jalan Batu Belig. Apart from the incredibly professional manicure and pedicure chairs and stations, the products are outstanding for an island that has limited availability. Arvy, the owner, spent most of her adult life in New York. Her ‘thing’ is nail polish and has been since she was young. This is vey much reflected in the choice of nail varnishes. On top of the standard O.P.I, there is Chanel, Dior, the full range of Tom Ford, Nars, Butter and gel colors. The treatment is relaxing and professional. There are extras you can add on to the Signature Manicure and Pedicure including the soothing warm stones, paraffin dip or silk wrap. Acrylic and Gel nails are also on offer. It is not all about nails however as there is a range of massages on offer as well as waxing. There is also a small retail section that is the first place in Bali to offer Kiehl’s products, limited edition nail colors and even a limited edition Karl Largerfeld doll. The Signature Manicure and Pedicure is Rp 250,000 (US$ 26) and massages start from Rp. 180,000. There is also a complimentary driver service within the Seminyak area upon request. Deus Deus Ex Machina, Temple of Enthusiasm in Canggu is the complete antithesis of partying in Seminyak. This is a temple of laid-back cool. Whether you’re into their customized motorbikes, specialized shaped surfboards or just after a coffee, cocktail and a live gig then this is the place for all your adrenaline vices. Part shop, art gallery, workshop and café, there is always something going on at Deus. Deus makes customized bikes and that is what makes them recognizable internationally. There are workshops at the back of The Temple where they will build you your own Deus custom bike or a surfboard shaped by some of the best in the business. They have also established themselves as a local legend for their live music Sunday Sessions and Taco and Tattoo Tuesdays. Live local and international rock and blues bands have graced the temple and provided an escape from dull Sundays. On Tuesdays you can get a free tattoo with your tacos if you have always wanted to get one or just had a couple too many. Popular amongst the local community, but also attracting a crowd from all over, there is an intimate feel to evenings here. It may be an unlikely combination of sunsets over the rice fields in the café, cocktails, music, tattoos and motorbikes, but it feels just right. Bungalow Living Bali The Bungalow in Berawa is the sort of place you dream of stumbling across when you are exploring the areas outside of Seminyak. Only open for nine weeks, it is brand new in relation to its neighbors, but is already full of the local community and visitors soaking up the relaxed, homely atmosphere. The Bungalow is inspired by bungalows of days gone by in India and colonial Jakarta, and also the Bali of days gone by. It is such a wonderfully pretty place in comparison to the homogenous cafes that have sprung up that you cannot help but be enchanted before you even enter. Giovanna and Dona, the owners, are constantly inspired by their travels, especially Rajasthan, as well as Dona’s native Bali. They say they wanted to create ‘an oasis that was homely and inviting, but also the whole package in terms of food and lifestyle ’. It certainly has lived up to its ethos. This is a café-cum concept store that sells all the furniture that you can see or are sitting on, jewelry and it is the sole stockist of Compendium Books in Bali. They also custom blend their own candles, fragrances and sell amazing joss sticks from India that burn for 36 hours! The coffee is custom blended and the juices and smoothies freshly whipped up on the spot. The incredibly tasty Green Smoothie (Rp 35,000) is fresh and great for hiding some fresh vegetables for kids. Their best seller is the organic chickpea and tofu burger complimented with homemade mayonnaise and chutney. It is easy to see how Bungalow Living contains all the elements of relaxed Bali stylish living that has been sadly lacking for some time. Warung Sulawesi Strangely enough, authentic Indonesian food is one of the hardest things to find in Seminyak. French, Italian, Greek and Japanese are everywhere. If you are in need of some home cooking from the islands this is the place to go. Down a small gang in Petitenget, this open air warung, owned by one of Bali’s more flamboyant characters named Bonita, is set in a little garden and has plenty of character and good tastes. The cooking leans towards Sulawesi cuisine but there are elements of all the islands. The beef rendang is legendary. The ayam rica-rica is also recommended, but be warned it comes pedas so if you are not a big chili lover it is best to ask for the milder dishes. Make sure you leave room for the dadar gulung, served pink, also one of the best on the island. This is a laid-back establishment that is only open for lunch. It is a place where locals and those passing through pack it out every day so it is best to get there early to select the best dishes. Gusto Gelateria Umalas is five minutes from Seminyak and also a short cut on the way to Deus and here on Jalan Umalas 2 lies a hidden treasure. If you love ice-cream this is the place to come. Here it feels like you have been transported to Italy and some of the great gelaterias there. The choice of flavors is vast for both ice cream and sorbets. There are classics such as vanilla and chocolate, but the chili chocolate and caramel, which are unbelievably good, are becoming classics in this small establishment. For chocolate bar fans there is Snickers and Bounty or Nutella to remind the bigger kids of childhood (Rp20,000 for a cup). The sorbets also come in normal Strawberry and Lime but it is the Dragon Fruit that really draws the eye with its vivid hue. Try it with the Lemongrass ice cream for a more local flavor. All the ice cream and sorbet is made on the premises by Regis, the owner, and are completely natural with no added preservatives. For non ice cream lovers, if there is such a thing, there are great coffee and pastries, served by Manuela, Regis’ wife, who is always ready for a chat and a bit of advice on flavors at the front. They are open from 7am-7pm from Monday – Saturday.

Andrew Clemens: A Self-taught Folk Artist
Andrew Clemens, a self-trained society craftsman, didn't live long enough to appreciate the distinction. His works were executed in the sand and contained in little pharmacist bottles. In spite of their sensitive craftsmanship, the mid-nineteenth century public would have thought of them as interests, not amazing bits of compelling artwork. To demonstrate their genuineness and to engage the common participants of dime exhibition halls, these bits of sand workmanship were frequently crushed to pieces. "It's an inquisitively miserable story, similar to a scene in a Dickensian tale," composes Ken Johnson for The New York Times. Clemens created hundreds of sand art pieces in his lifetime, but only a few have survived. One of them came to auction with Skinner in the month of November in a timed online sale. Andrew Clemens sand art is famous worldwide. Many collectors have the collection of these bottles. Clemens was destined to German and Prussian workers who followed a dash for unheard of wealth to McGregor, Iowa. At five years of age, Clemens contracted encephalitis. In spite of the fact that he endure the expanding of his cerebrum, the craftsman lost his hearing and quite a bit of his discourse. That early ailment later carried him to the Iowa Institute for the Education of the Deaf and Dumb. During his understudy days, Clemens began to follow his advantage in craftsmanship. His late spring get-aways were spent investigating the feigns of the Mississippi River, gathering pieces of diverse sandstone and quartz. Clemens painstakingly constructed a range from the grains of these stones. He discovered shades of unadulterated white, ochre, red, yellow, blue, and green. When Clemens returned home, the genuine work started. His first tasks included layering the shaded sand in adjusted pharmacist bottles utilizing basic herringbone or jewel designs. Andrew Clemens sand art bottles gained fame. Steadily, however, Clemens' expertise expanded and he took on more goal-oriented subjects. Clemens utilized hand-created instruments to control the sand. He never protected his works with stick, rather depending on cautious pressing and strain to hold all the grains set up. Each container was finished tops curvy prior to being for all time fixed. "One container of this sand, addressing the forty odd tones, gauging twenty pounds, we especially appreciated as showing the expertise and creativity of the youthful craftsman who has organized the different tones in an appealing, imaginative and capable way," the North Iowa Times wrote in 1875. "The youthful craftsman was only fourteen days drew in upon this one container." His jugs were carefully tedious to make, with some needing longer than a time of work. The most multifaceted jugs had concealing and were three-dimensional. As Clemens set up himself locally, he began taking commissions for the sand craftsmanship bottles. A few clients mentioned their own names written in expound content, while others favoured fragile bloom scenes. This art is rare, find this art work for auction before all others. Check the auction calendar of auctiondaily. The containers were normally sold for between USD 5 and $7, or around $130 to $180 in the present cash. Over a century after they were created, the value of these jugs has expanded dramatically. Late closeout assesses normally fall somewhere in the range of $20,000 and $30,000. Notwithstanding, the most intricate pieces far outperform those appraisals. Interest in his work started moving upwards with a jug that came to $72,000 in a 2015 Eldred's closeout. All the more as of late, a custom jug for Mrs Eliza B. Lewis sold for $137,500 at Cowan's Auctions. The mallet cost was just about multiple times the high gauge of $35,000. It sold after 87 serious offers. Presently before his passing of tuberculosis at 37 years old, Clemens started accepting acknowledgment. "Our kin don't as expected appreciate this craftsmanship. The expert doesn't appear to know its value nor does he appear to understand his commended position among the innovators of the world," a paper supervisor wrote in 1888. Clemens' specialty will test a really willing business sector in 2020, one more ready to recognize his all-consuming purpose. Media source: AuctionDaily

When the close by RMS Carpathia got the message, the catastrophe had effectively started. In any case, the Carpathia actually showed up on schedule to save more than 700 travelers and group individuals. The Royal Mail Ship (RMS) Carpathia went through more than 80 years at the lower part of the ocean after an experience with German submarines in World War I.

Presently, a choice of rescued antiquities from the RMS Carpathia's watery grave will come to sell with Ahlers and Ogletree on January fifteenth, 2021.

It was less than the Titanic and comparable liners, in any event, lacking five-star facilities for quite a while. At the point when the boat's group got the Titanic's misery call, the Carpathia was at that point hefting around 740 of its own travelers. Skipper Arthur Henry Rostron promptly turned the boat around subsequent to hearing the SOS. It required three hours of movement at maximum velocity for the Carpathia to show up.

How To Make Mee Goreng Mamak (印度炒面), Fried Noodles with Indo-Malayan Flair
I love Indonesian food. Based on their history and interactions with the rest of Asia, the cuisine has subtle nods to Chinese, Thai, and Indian dishes, but with their own special (and usually nice and spicy) twist. Mee goreng is perhaps my favorite of the Indo-Malayan dishes. From the picture, it looks like a standard chow mein-esque stir fry, but the flavor involved is absolutely incredible and definitely sets it apart from its 'noodle cousins'. (Especially when you top it with fried onion pieces and just the right amount of sesame oil.) Mee goreng is such a popular dish that you can buy instant packages of it all over Asia. In fact, I have some friends who lived in Western Africa that enjoyed instant mee goreng as a steady staple through the week. (You can buy instant mee goreng at a majority of Asian supermarkets in America, but try this recipe for the real deal and super authentic stuff!) ------------------------------------------------------ Mee Goreng Mamak (Fried Noodles) 500 grams of yellow noodles Handfuls of beansprouts depend on liking 2 small tomatoes, quartered 2 small onions, chopped Handful of chicken breast meat, thinly sliced, or minced beef 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 potato, boiled and cut into cubes 1 small size dry bean curd, cut into small pieces 3 tablespoons of cooking oil (I usually use soybean.) 1 tablespoons of minced green onion and garlic 2 fish cakes, sliced (optional) Handful of shrimp, de-shelled and de-veined, optional 1 green chili or Thai chili or red cut chili, optional 3 tablespoons of ketchup 3 tablespoons of chili sauce or chili paste 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce 1 teaspoon of garam masala/curry/turmeric powder, optional (but highly recommended!)

Magnificent Madakaripura
If you don’t take a picture it never happened, or so it seems nowadays with the popularity of selfies and all and sundry owning a selfie stick. But with the popularity of most tourist sites it’s hard to get a composition that doesn’t include someone in the background. However, Madakaripura falls provides an all-natural backdrop without another soul for miles. Dubbed as the final meditation place of Gajah Mada, the elephant general of the Majapahit Empire, a visit to the misty, streaming falls is the ideal post-Mount Bromo excursion: It offers a much less strenuous experience than climbing up the 250 steps to the sulfur caldera. The falls are located roughly 35 kilometers from Bromo near a village called Sapih and can be reached via Jl. Raya Bromo to Lumbang on the way to Probolinggo. It is a pleasant ride — ideally on motorcycle — on which you will find yourself unconsciously pressing the brakes as the villages you pass on the snaking mountainous roads are enshrouded in lush and equally mesmerizing greenery. Five kilometers away from the waterfall’s parking lot a man will appear from what seems to be a bus stop and will charge the entrance fee of Rp 3,000 (3 US cent). A narrow dirt road flanked by banana and durian trees along with casuarina and some colorful apiaries will lead you to another “check point” which is unchecked and abandoned with a permanently raised barrier. From there, it is another kilometer to the stall-laden parking lot with a statue of the great Gajah Mada in the lotus position and an empty fountain sitting dryly right in the middle of it. Be assertive and be on your guard. No sooner than alighting and touts will hound you. The trail however is quite visible making the falls easily accessible. A guide is in fact not necessary but if you choose one — or passively allow one to latch on to you — the cost will range anywhere from Rp 100,000. There have been instances of groups being charged over Rp 400,000, an outrageous price especially for a local doing nothing more than hold your hand when crossing the river. Negotiating is as advisable as bringing common sense since the area is still wild and mildly challenging to get through. You may have to cross the river about five times in total so proper footwear is essential as some rocks are deceivingly slippery. En route you will also encounter a number of stalls selling fried bananas, kopi panas (hot coffee) and tempeh (fermented soya bean cake) as well as hawkers selling ponchos for the stretch of trail which is rained on by bigger streams of cold and refreshing water. Do bring your own raincoat, unless you don’t mind getting drenched and riding home using the wind as your natural blow dryer. After a kilometer trek you will find yourself wading anywhere from shin-deep ripples to a mid-chest pool before getting to the lagoon, the hidden reward for your hard work. This last step requires clambering over a crest of rocks. There, the 200 meter-high waterfalls reveals itself in full showing how the canyon is really like a special chamber of sorts of all things natural. Apart from the several waterfall cascades, when light pours in at the appropriate time of day it illuminates the basin making the cliff’s fauna even brighter and more vibrant in color. The rushing water makes it difficult to hear and the large boulders lining the river are reminiscent of dinosaur eggs. It isn’t recommended to visit during the wet season as the water gets pretty muddy and the risk of flooding and landslides are much greater. Though we didn’t see any macaque monkeys, I heard that in fact it’s a good thing—they sometimes toss rocks off the cliff’s edge. But don’t worry, helmets are not required and if they were, I’m sure there would be several hawkers renting them out for a nominal fee. Finding yourself away from the frenzy of shutter-pressing tourists will make you really appreciate the pristine waterfalls and the feeling of being like Indiana Jones trekking right into the heart of the jungle. Crossing barefoot a river and pushing through branches sticking out into the pathway, your only obstacle to good times and people-free selfies!
