Thousands of Yogyakartans greet royal newlyweds

Thousands of onlookers filled Jl. Malioboro in Yogyakarta on Wednesday hoping to catch a glimpse of the newlywed royal couple Gusti Kanjeng Ratu (GKR) Hayu and Kanjeng Pangeran Haryo (KPH) Notonegoro as they were paraded along the city’s historic street. Using 12 royal carriages, the parade started at 9:15 a.m. from the Yogyakarta Palace and headed toward Kepatihan where the royal wedding reception was held. Along the way, people enthusiastically greeted and waved to them. “This is a rare moment that does not happen frequently. It’s alright for me to skip work for the sake of the parade,” Yanto, a local, said as he was carrying his 4-year-old kid in his arms to witness the parade. For Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, who is also Yogyakarta governor, the wedding of GKR Hayu, his fourth daughter, is expected to be the last as his four other daughters are all already married. The four other daughters of Sultan Hamengkubuwono X are GKR Pembayun (eldest), GKR Condrokirono (second-eldest), GKR Maduretno (third-eldest) and GKR Bendara (youngest). The newlywed royal couple, who wore green wedding costumes, were on board the Kanjeng Kyai Jongwiyat cart, which was made in the Hague, the Netherlands, during the rule of Sultan Hamengkubuwono VII in 1880. Following the newlyweds were the carriages of the dancers of the Bedaya Manten and the Bedaya Sang Askara royal dances performed in front of Sultan Hamengkubuwono X and the honorary guests to mark the start of the wedding reception. A number of bregodo or royal infantry troop companies escorted the first batch of the parade’s entourage. The second group of the entourage was the Kangjeng Kyai Wimono Putro carriage, which carried Sultan Hamengkubuwono X and his wife GKR Hemas, followed by the carriages of their daughters and their respective husbands. The third batch was the Kanjeng Kyai Landower cart carrying Yogyakarta Vice Governor KGPAA Paku Alam IX. The entire entourage took some 45 minutes to reach Kepatihan. A number of schools located along and near the route of the parade allowed their students to leave early on Wednesday to give them a chance to witness the parade. Over 50 units of angkringan (traditional wooden carriages used to display foods for sale) prepared various traditional snacks and drinks for onlookers free of charge during the parade. The snacks and the beverages quickly disapeared as people enthusiastically enjoyed them. Chairman of the royal wedding’s organizing committee, KRT Yudho Hadiningrat, said the whole parade procession was also meant as a way to introduce the newlyweds to the public as well as to symbolize the palace’s closeness with the people. The wedding reception on Wednesday was opened with prayers led by the palace’s royal servant, KRP Ngabdul Ridwan, followed by the Bedaya Manten royal dance, which was created by the late Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX, the father of Sultan Hamengkubuwono X.

3 luxury sustainable spas in Bali
Bali has a lot of spas; in some areas, every third shop is a spa. All varieties of spas can be found as well -- from local to international award winning spas. In recent years, a lot of people have become more conscious of what they put on their skin. The skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it, so with increasing amounts of chemicals in many products, it can lead to allergies or worse. One way to avoid this is to choose a spa that uses naturally made products and takes an approach that is kind to your skin. Local Indonesian jamu (traditional medicine) methods have always done this but a few luxury spas in Bali not only use natural products but also take the spa experience to a new level of comfort. The Spa at Alila Soori Villas The Spa is housed in a sustainably built house with a view of the Indian Ocean in front. Entering this warm and opulent hideaway, the central spa area is dominated by a beautiful pool that instantly adds a sensuously relaxed atmosphere. The traditional Balinese Beauty Ritual is two hours of pure bliss. Balinese lulur is an ancient village remedy with its origins from the rice farmers of Bali that is recognized as traditional medicine. The treatment is believed to help warm the body, relieve aching joints and help in the recovery of troubled or loose skin. Locally sourced sandalwood, fennel seed, star aniseed, eaglewood and fenugreek are blended together to use during this healing remedy. It is a 60 minutes Balinese Massage, body scrub, body mask and mini facial. The massage uses natural oils and you can choose a beautiful aromatic blend to suit your mood. After the massage, you are gently scrubbed using the herbal warming mixture and then wrapped in a cocoon while the gently heated massage table ensures every pore is cleansed and every muscle relaxed. The therapist performs a revitalizing mini facial as you relax on this wave of warmth. Not only do you feel like you are floating on a cloud after the treatment, but you are also assured that only the most natural ingredients have been used during this process. If you loved the products used, there are a wide range of Alila Spa products for sale to take with you. A particular favorite is the Black Volcanic Soap that is made from Balinese volcanic lava. Ojas Spa, COMO Shambhala Estate This famed wellness retreat outside Ubud is the ultimate luxury hideaway in the forest with an ethos based around holistic principles. If you are not staying here, you can come and get pampered at the beautifully serene Ojas Spa. Ranges of treatments are offered here, including hydrotherapy and Ayurveda treatments. This Zen space is very soothing and, set among vast sounding grounds; it is a quiet retreat to indulge in a treatment. Signature massages are done using specially blended oils made on the estate, sourced from local products and 100 percent natural. The Shambhala signature massage is an hour-long treatment and uses innovative long strokes and medium pressure to both relax and revive spirit and mind. Set in a light airy room looking onto a garden, complemented by clean lines to leave the mind uncluttered, this deeply therapeutic technique performed by a highly skilled therapist feels more like a four handed massage thanks to the expertise of the therapist. This is a deeply relaxing and aromatic experience that leaves the skin smooth and supple. Facials are also available using a range of their homemade products called PURIFIES. These products are based on the principles of aromatherapy, incorporating only premium grade oils free of parabens, petrochemicals, artificial fragrance and color. The PURIFY Holistic Facials are deeply calming and catered to your skin type using these products, along with steam and specialist massage techniques to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. Not only are the products used at the Ojas Spa kind to your skin, but also to the surrounding environment. Fivelements Puri Ahmisa This healing hotel is located just outside Ubud in a scenic spot with the river flowing through. The spa is perched right along the riverbank so you hear the flow of water easing past as you are experiencing some incredibly therapeutic and natural treatments. This award-winning spa is unique in that not only does it have a wide variety of beauty treatments, but also healing rituals are on offer from Balinese healers and priests. This means that both body and soul can be nurtured naturally in this wonderful sustainably built bamboo spa. Acupressure with Pak Ketut is designed to trigger the body’s self-healing abilities and uses energy transfer to help heal. After starting with transference of energy, the ritual is designed to relieve both physical and mental strain. This can relieve deep-seated tension and trigger the healing process. The healing rituals harness the power of both natural herbal ingredients and energy. The beauty rituals use a wide variety of natural elements found throughout Bali. Probably one of the most healing plants is the coconut. Virgin coconut oil is one of the most healing oils, naturally antibacterial and nourishing. The Coconut Harmony treatment is a deep massage with this oil, followed by a moisturizing bath of coconut milk, the pure blended aromatic Shakti Oil and scattered with Frangipani flowers. A hewn rock bath gently sheltered by foliage looks over the flowing river below melding nature and the spa together. This wonderful bamboo structure is open meaning that it is a totally sensory experience within nature.

Must-try Lousiana-style crabs in Bali
Bali is one of the best places to enjoy seafood in Indonesia. Jimbaran, for example, has long been one of the island's most popular spots to savor this particular dish while enjoying an amazing sunset. For those longing for Lousiana-style seafood, there are at least two crab restaurants available in Bali; allowing you to eat with your bare hands on the table, without any fancy plates and cutlery to bother you. The Holy Crab Following its popularity in Jakarta as the 'it' place to eat Alaskan crab, Bali's Holy Crab on Jl. Petitenger No. 50 offers a great combination of world-class seafood and traditional Louisiana cooking techniques in a chic yet cozy dining atmosphere. “There has been such a great response to The Holy Crab from food lovers in Jakarta that we are bringing the whole concept and experience to Bali. It has always been a dream of mine to be a part of the island's culinary scene, which has a broader international audience,” said The Holy Crab owner as well as executive chef Albert Wijaya. Choices available on the main menu include Dungeness crab, king crab legs, snow crab legs and lobster with prices ranging from Rp 88,000 (US$7) per 100 grams for the Dungeness crab to Rp 120,000 for the king crab legs -- all served in a delicious secret recipe sauce with mild, medium and hot levels of spiciness. Sausages and corn are also available as additional dishes. According to Albert, the restaurant's crustaceans are imported straight from Alaska and some are from Indonesia. Crab Bar Situated on Jl. Batu Belig 106 in Seminyak , the Crab Bar was founded by famous Indonesian chef Ragil Imam Wibowo in August 2014 with the aim of becoming the first destination for people seeking to savor Lousiana-style seafood on the island. “In Bali, if people want to eat pork, they will head straight to Ibu Oka. We want that to happen to us too; we want to become the first place people recommend when they talk about eating crab in Bali,” said the restaurant's general manager Don Domingo. For newcomers, the Crab Bar's most popular dish is CB's Hot Bag which consists of 500 grams of mud crab, 150 grams of prawn, 200 grams of yabbies (Australian freshwater crustaceans) or clams, sausages and corn. A portion costs Rp 495,000. The CB’s Cold Platter, priced at Rp 450,000, is also recommended with cold Mud Crab, 200 grams of prawn, 200 grams of clams and four pieces of oyster or yabbies. The Crab Bar offers six types of sauce for its hot-platter menus with three levels of spiciness (mild, medium and TNT). The choices include original Lousiana-style with smoked Cajun butter, oriental-style CB’s Bali Sauce, Bangka curry sauce, chili sauce, teriyaki black pepper and garlic butter. While for the cold platter menus, foodies can try garlic mayo, tomato tartar and tom yam mayo sauce. - See more at: http://www.jakpost.travel/news/must-try-lousiana-style-crabs-in-bali-otImxpP0OU7Hu4aJ.html#sthash.rQELFKmb.dpuf
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.

The one thing you need to know before you leave for the airport
After Air Canada denied Dong Heon Kim boarding on his recent flight to Korea, he joined the ranks of disappointed travelers who have shown up to the airport ready for take-off only to have their plans thwarted by missing or inadequate travel documents. Now he wants to know if we can help. Can we? Yes, but not in the way that Kim had hoped. His story serves as a reminder of the importance of consulting with an official information source before heading to the airport for an international flight. If you don’t verify that you have all the required documentation for travel, you may end up back home where you started. Ready for take-off? Kim’s story began when he purchased a ticket on Air Canada through ExploreTrip, an online ticketing agency. When he showed up at the airport for his flight, the Air Canada representatives determined that because his trip stopped in Vancouver, he needed an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) to transit through Canada. That moment was the first time Kim had heard about this requirement. But since this ETA can sometimes be granted at the airport, the Air Canada staff assisted Kim with the application. However, he did not receive an immediate approval and missed his flight. Kim then made another traveling misstep. He says that instead of canceling his flight in person, he sent an email to Air Canada and went home. The airline listed Kim as a no-show. A no-show When an airline determines that a passenger is a no-show, the traveler loses the value of the entire ticket. So when Kim contacted us, he wanted to know if he could hold ExploreTrip responsible for his lost flight and force it to reimburse him. He believed that someone at this agency should have informed him of his need for an ETA. As we have pointed out many times, travelers are responsible for making sure that they have purchased their tickets from a well reputed agency like Cheapoair and possess all the required documents . And, expecting an online agency with which Kim had no personal contact, to inform him of his personalized travel needs was especially ill-advised. Terms of using ExploreTrip I checked the terms of usage for ExploreTrip, and as expected, under FAQ’s it reads: What kind of visa and documents are required for my travel? Do I need transit visa? All international travelers need to have valid documents and visa to get entry into the other country even for certain transit countries. You are responsible to ensure that you have all necessary travel documents and visas before booking the ticket. To check the visa requirement for transit and destination country, please click on this link below to get the relevant details. We suggest you to contact the respective country embassy in [the U.S.] the usa as per your itinerary to get the accurate information for [your visa] and documents. Under this FAQ was a link to an online tool provided by the International Air transport Association(IATA). With this tool, a traveler can enter their personalized travel information, and the required travel and health documents appear. If Kim had utilized this tool before his intended journey, he would have been alerted to his need for an ETA. This type of language described in ExploreTrip’s FAQs can be found across the board in the travel industry. Similar disclaimers can be found in the terms of the airlines, online travel agencies and with traditional travel agencies. Knowing the required travel documents The responsibility for knowing and obtaining the proper travel documents lies with the traveler. Kim’s case highlights the fact that you also need to check the entry requirements for any country through which your flight may connect. And it’s not just missing visas or ETAs that could put the brakes on your trip. Rita Finger recently contacted us because her daughter was denied boarding on her flight to Switzerland. She attempted to check in with less than three months’ validity left on her passport. The requirement for entry to Switzerland is three months beyond the dates of travel. As a result, she incurred an additional expense of $2,500 (to change her flight) and the cost of an expedited passport. Her mother wants to know who will reimburse her daughter. Unfortunately, the answer is no one. When a traveler makes a mistake such as this, they almost always bear the financial burden. The U.S. Department of State Long before packing your suitcase, make sure to consult the Department of State’s website. Here, you will find an abundance of information for your international travel needs. You can also find the contact information for the embassy of the country to which you plan to travel. This embassy will be the ultimate authority on the currently needed travel documents for your destination. By the way, a consumer advocacy site also cannot be relied upon to give you advice as to what travel documents you will need. We have had several consumers post to our forums recently asking for guidance about their complicated travel needs. We can’t give that type of advice. As we have seen time and again, the implications of having the wrong information can be disastrous. Who could forget the recent case of Elgy Gillespie who tried to fly to Ireland with no passport at all? That was an expensive mistake. Please consult the embassy or consulate of the country to which you wish to travel to make certain of your needed travel documents. We never like to hear about travelers missing their planned vacations and losing money in the process. But, we hope that by providing this information, we can prevent our readers from ending up in similar circumstances. Remember, doing your pre-travel research can save you a big headache down the road.
