Jakarta Post Feb. 1: The first day of the new visa policy was marked by confusion on Sunday, as a number of foreigners claimed they had not been informed about the new ruling from Indonesian embassies abroad. But in Bali, the enforcement of the new visa policy went smoothly at Ngurah Rai Airport. Dozens of foreigners who had planned to take a Silk Air flight from Singapore bound for Mataram, Lombok, chose to stay in the city-state as they failed to  
obtain visas before boarding the plane. "Because of the visa policy, dozens of foreigners opted to cancel their visit here.There should have been better preparation," Mataram tourism promotion member Rossa Stuart told Antara. She said the Silk Air passengers  were told to apply for a visa at the Indonesian Embassy in Singapore as Mataram's Selaparang International Airport was not uthorized to issue the visa. While the impact of the new visa policy 
on the tourist  market is yet to be seen, the visa procedure at Ngurah Rai airport in Bali was clearly improving even on day one. "For the first day it went very well," Aileen Kollasch, 70, from Darwin, Australia, said, but then added that perhaps they had been luckys there were only 42 passengers on the flight. Made Yudha, the airport's operation manager, said it took 30 mins for the first 42 tourists to go through the visa payment procedure in the morning but in the afternoon, as the airport got busier, the procedure took 40 mins for 100 tourists. "We will learn from experience and I believe the process can be quicker," he said. He added that even though some tourists had complained that the process was too slow, most comments had been positive and people seemed happy.
Up to 3 hr wait
Four minutes was the best time reported on the first day. Heaven help anybody arriving on a 436 seat 747-400. The last passenger would 
have a wait of almost 3 hours. Imagine should 2 or 3 aircraft arrive at once.
Reason for Visa change
The Indonesian Government believes many countries have an unfair immigration policy that discriminate against Indonesians. The new policy gives free-visa only to countries that give visa-free access to Indonesian travelers.
Aus. tourists down 27%
DENPASAR, Bali (Antara): The number of Australian tourists who came to Bali in 2003 dropped 27 percent from the previous year,  said Tourist head, I Gde Pitana, Australian tourists  dropped to 183,000 from 232,410 in 2002. 
Tourist numbers dwindle
Arrivals at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport for 2003 totaled 994,616, falling below 1 Mill. for the first time in a decade, according to Jakarta Post, this showed a fall of 291,228 arrivals from 2002. Pre-Terrorist days arrivals in 1999 & 2000 were 1.4 Mill

THE FACTS
You can't get it from eating chicken or eggs - providing they are properly cooked.
PRECAUTIONS:
(1) Avoid home-made  Mayonnaise or any product using raw eggs.
(2) Avoid contact with live chickens i.e. chicken farms or  markets.
Transmission
"Bird Flu" is transmitted to humans from chickens by direct contact with chicken feces or oral contact or airborne dust from same. Farm workers and handlers are of most risk of transmission.
The disease cannot be passed from one human to another.
Jakarta Post 26/1: The Director General for Animal Husbandry, Mr. Sofian Sudjarat has publicly admitted that cases of Avian influenza have been present in Indonesia since Aug 29.
Cover Up?
The Jakarta Post has suggested a possible cover up in official's handling of the disease when they quoted Mr. Marthen Malole, a researcher at the Bogor Institute of Agriculture, who said the government had refused to make the disease public following pressure from certain multinational companies involved in the poultry industry. Cases have been confirmed in 9 provinces and 17 regencies in Indonesia.
New Scientist
New Scientist magazine says the suspected cause for the widespread dissemination of the H5N1 virus was mass vaccination of poultry flocks by Chinese farmers. Worried after all chickens in Hong Kong were slaughtered to curb an outbreak of the disease in 1997, Chinese producers started vaccinating their birds with inactivated H5N1 virus.
W.H.O. Concerns
The World Health Organization is concerned because if someone is Infected with “Bird Flu” and is suffering from human flu maybe the virus could mutate, causing an epidemic, far greater than SARS. Presently there is no immunization for humans from “Bird Flu” It is expected to take 6 months to develop a vaccine.
INGREDIENTS
4 Chicken Pieces 2 Eggs
225g Puff Pastry 150 ml Milk
1 tsp Veg. Oil 15g Butter

Aussie/Indo Boat Race
Denpasar, Antara, Jan 23:- Australia and Indonesia will hold an international boat race from Darwin to Benoa port in Bali in June, Bali governor Dewa Beratha said. The provincial administration of Bali has welcomed the event which can be used as an opportunity to further promote tourism industry in Bali.
JAKARTA Jan 10: Garuda has confirmed it would add 10  to 15 new Boeing 737-300s to its fleet to enhance its services in the domestic market. "Two of the new aircraft arrived last Dec. "They will support our Citylink service, which until now has been flying 5 Fokker F-28s," Garuda director Indra Setiawan said Garuda hoped to achieve a 12% to 15% increase in PAX this year. "NEW"  the 737-300 model is no longer in production.
Caught playing with their roosters!
Denpasar, Bali Jan 23 (AP):- Police officers fired warning shots and scuffled with spectators on Friday at an illegal cockfight in a temple on the resort island of Bali, witnesses said. Several people in the temple in the island's capital, Denpasar, suffered light injuries. 
Some accused police of trying to steal money and cellular phones from the spectators. "This is not a police bust. This is a robbery," shouted Nyoman. Police left the temple without making any arrests.  Cockfighting and gambling are common on Bali, which is Hindu, unlike most of predominantly Muslim Indonesia. Both are illegal, but police traditionally ignore them or allow them to continue after extorting money from organizers.
Meg's  57th 
Megawati celebrates her 57th birthday with 5,000 people:- Jakarta Post Jan 24:- President Megawati Soekarnoputri chose to 
celebrate her 57th birthday with thousands of well-wishers on Friday. But while she often boasts of being a law-abiding
citizen, the Elections Supervisory Committee  could perceive her actions as an attempt to find a loophole in the ban on campaign activities prior to the assigned campaign period. The birthday party was held in an open field in Jababeka Industrial Estate, in Cikarang, West Java. "This is a private celebration, so no pictures please," a presidential palace official begged journalists at the venue. Megawati was born in Yogyakarta on Jan. 23, 1947, the eldest daughter of the country's first president, Sukarno.  "Personally, I would like to hide my age. People say that after you reach 50, your time is less and less. I would like to say that I am 27-years plus," she said. Popular dangdut singer Cici Paramida entertained the guests.

Back in Ampenan we lunched again at Dino's Pojok restaurant. Then Oney took Pak Made and Gede out in his car to Lingsar to see the live eels at the Hindu Lingsar Temple waterworks. After they went to see some land Oney purchased.
Lingsar Temple
This may be the only Hindu shrine in the world where both Hindus and Moslems come to worship. The temple was built in 1714 and rebuilt in 1878 to symbolize harmony and unity between the Hindu Balinese and Moslem Sasak population of the area, especially those who adhere to Lombok's unique Wektu Telu (pray 3 times a day) school of Islam, still practiced on the island of Lombok today.
This was Pak Made and his son's first ever flight. So much excitement, which ebbed somewhat after the flight was delayed 2 hours.

Mosque al Haram, Mecca
2 Mill. Invade Mecca
The annual Haii pilgrimage is the worlds largest event. This year the pilgrims have numbered over 2 million. To make a pilgrimage to Mecca is the 5th pillar of Islam, a Muslim must try to do it once in their lifetime. The annual organization of this event is mammoth. This January 204,000 people traveled from Indonesia, mostly by Garuda, Sadly on Sun Feb. 1, over 200 Indonesians were killed in a crush during the stoning of the pillars ceremony.
The Pilgrimage
The pilgrimage requires you to follow many rituals along the way. You begin at Miqat just outside Mecca, known as the Hajj entry station. There you bath and put on the Ihram (a white seamless gown) and you begin to recite the Talbiua Du’a. Then you travel to Mina on 
the 8th day of Dhul Hajjah in the night, the next day you travel to the valley of Arafat where you praise Allah (God). At he end of the day you travel to Muzdalifa where you gather more than 50 stones. In the morning you return to Mina where you throw stones at pillars representing the devil. Then you  go to Mosque al Haram which contains the Ka’bar, this you walk around 7 times, praying as you go.
100 years ago
You repeat this for 3-4 days, then on the 12th day of Dhul Hajjah you you complete Hajj by returning to the Ka’bar for a final 7 circuits, asking forgiveness for your sins. 
History
It is believed the Ka’bar was built in Mecca by Adam, about 4,000 years ago, then later re-built by Abraham. 
The Ka'bar
Inside is a stone that is believed to have come direct from Allah. 
Mohammed
Mohammed was born around 570 AD, at that time the Ka'bar was the center of a religious culture of idols, polytheism & animism, with a god for every day of the year. Mohammed after being banished to Medina marched back to Mecca, removing all the idols and restoring the Ka'bar's original condition,

Guardian London: Centuries before Europeans, sailors from Indonesia raided and traded across the continent of Africa, filling their vessels with gold and silver for the princes of Java and Sumatra. Indonesians gave Africa the secrets of iron and bronze, exotic plants such as banana, and a new culture enriched with music, architecture and spirituality. Claims British amateur historian Robert Dick-Read (73) who has been collecting evidence for a manuscript he hopes to publish this year. Some experts have rubbished Mr Dick-Read as misguided, but others say the "Indonesia Jones" thesis is plausible.
Expedition
An unrelated expedition,  which reconstructed a ship, illustrated in the reliefs of an 8th century Buddhist temple in Java, has crossed the Indian Ocean and reached South Africa, destination Ghana. Mid Jan they stopped in Cape Town before continuing on to S. Africa.
"We believe our ancestors came here. When we finish I think historians will believe that this voyage would have been possible", said an Indonesian crew member.
It is generally agreed that approx. 1,500 years ago sailors from Indonesia and Malaysia, sailed 3,700 miles west and settled Madagascar. So it is not inconceivable that they traveled to South Africa.
Meg's Brother to Run
Megawati Soekarnoputri's youngest brother, Guruh, plans to run against her in the Presidential election, mid-year. Guruh is the highly artistic member of the Soekarno family and responsible for many special event extravaganzas in Indonesia.

Later ACE established a separate company called PT Ace Indoritel Perkakas. The company, which is also known as Ace Hardware Indonesia, was later granted the status of master franchise holder by the headquarters in the U.S. Ace Hardware Indonesia is expanding
operations in the country and the region and appointing sub-franchisees. that it fully owns. These outlets will then serve other outlets run by the sub-franchisees, who may operate from their stores, shophouse or even mobile vans.
The Cavernous interior

Do your beans look like this?
Or this?
No chemicals - no additives!
Yes you can cook appetizing green beans with a fresh spring green colour. Beans go dark when being boiled because they contain toxins and they stay in the bean giving them that horrible dark colour.
The secret
Use an extra large pot of salted water, the water will absorb the toxins, leaving your beans, looking as the song says "Like the green green grass of home."

KHO: At Christmas time the KHO purchased a new acoustic guitar. Handy to have a second guitar when we have 2 players in the house. 
The Guitar is manufactured by Olympia guitars of Tacoma, Washington, US. It's a model OD5, one of their new offshore manufactured models (we think made in Indonesia.) Special presses are used to bend the
mahogany used in the sides and back. The front is made from spruce and the neck from rosewood.
Lead by the experience and knowledge of Terry Atkins, this guitar was engineered, set-up, inspected and shipped,
directly from the factory in Tacoma, Washington. Olympic claim the imported guitars are built with the same attention to detail and with precision manufacturing.  The pedigree of Tacoma guitars started  with the Christian Frederick Martin who, beginning with his company in 1833, began to develop all of the things that we now consider to the steel string guitar. Olympia guitar sales have now risen to number 3 in the US.
Road Test by Dadan
I very very like this guitar, sound like more cost guitar. Is easy to play because the frets are large and it have lovely soft feel. 
The space between the strings and fret is only 1.5 mm. So not have use big
push on your fingers. Nice if play for long time,  hand not get sick. The neck is small so easy for my small hands come around it. I  give it a 9 out of 10. Dadan is Jamal's youngest brother.
The Guitar price
Jamal found  the guitar in Matahari  on special, only $85 normal price $190. The US price is US$199 (AU $265.) Well done Jamal!

This was a genuine ad released by Air Niugini back in the early 1980s. They flew services from Australian cities to Port Moresby, and reciprocal rights were given to Qantas.
