Independance day 17 August

Panjat Pinang

Played in virtually all towns and villages on Independence Day, this quirky contest involves climbing up a tall greasy pole or palm tree to claim prizes hanging precariously at the top such as a TV, Playstation or an envelope stuffed with cash. It is a mad, slippery free-for-all with men and boys clambering over each other to reach the summit first. Most immediately fall off in the mayhem and bruises and broken bones are not uncommon.

There are a multitude of other wacky games and competitions played out across the country, often with their own little regional nuances. Most involve playing with or gorging on food while regional capitals often hold loud and colorful processions and outdoor concerts. The big day comes at the height of tourist season and foreign visitors are always encouraged to join in the lunacy even if simply passing through a remote village.

You can get into the patriotic mood at Yogyakarta and Bali which host dance and music events while notable restaurants and hotels will always jump on the bandwagon with a themed Independence Day bash or two. Jakarta clubs and bars also go to town with wild patriotic party nights. While most of the country’s younger generation has little affinity with Indonesia’s struggle for independence 67 years ago, they certainly know how to celebrate in style.

Throughout the months of July and August it is common to find tooth-filing ceremonies throughout Bali. In the Balinese belief system, the ceremony helps people rid themselves of the invisible forces of evil - teeth are the symbol of lust, greed, anger, insobriety, confusion and jealousy. Filing the teeth therefore renders someone both more physically and more spiritually beautiful, as well as symbolising the rite of passage for an adolescent into adulthood.

I've been invited to a ceremony.....What do I wear

For Men.....A head-cloth (udeng), a shirt with a collar, an inner sarong (kamben), an outer sarong (saput), a sash (selempot) and a pair of sandals

For Women ....A lace top (kebaya), underclothing or a corset (kutang), a sarong (kamben), a sash (selempot), and a pair of sandals with a small heel looks nice

For a temple ceremony .....white is your best bet for most parts of the clothing, especially for the man’s head-cloth. Over the years, a yellow outer sarong has become sort of standard for men. The sarong may be any colour you wish.
The same goes for the women..... a white Kebaya, any coloured sarong and sash
Best not to wear black.

For cremations.....black or other dark colours are the norm for most parts of the attire. However, this depends on who is getting cremated – higher caste cremations (pelebon) may require one to wear white.

At tooth filings and weddings .......all different colours are worn. If so inclined, you can dress it up a bit with different types of accessories, such as handbags jewelry and high heels .

We are here to help ...if you get invited or want to attend a traditional ceremony ,we have a small supply of sarongs kebaya's and sashes availible to loan or there are some lovely little shops in the area that sell them and they are inexpensive to buy.

Our new spa treatments include Shirodara...One hour combination massage followed by Shirodara treatment
....warm herbal oil is poured in a steady stream over your forehead inducing a profound relaxing state, dreamlike almost out of body experience, relaxing the body but clarifying the mind at the same time

I tried it yesterday for the first time it was such an amazing experience it's hard to find the words to describe the sublime serenity and blissful state of relaxation you reach.
