    Behind Kura Kura Beer there’s Putu Wiranatha that tries to find balance in everything he does. It accidentally resonates with his favourite story of Bali being in the back of a balancing kura-kura or turtle. We get the brewery grand tour at Plaga to talk with him about everything from the craft beer business and cultures to making time to enjoy life.

    In a sunny yet breezy daytime, we were flattered by Sekar Puti and Agugn’s studio ambiance. Sekar has her ceramic studio on the first floor with a rice field scenery behind it. Lots of things are happening there, and we like to see the harmony between people with nature.

    From Goa Gajah to Sayan House with Mr. Eddie Hara. We have a little walk, with a bit of sweat under our shirts, and heavy breathing in the midst of the hot weather in Bali. But the laughters of that day will be a good memory for us. We can feel his authenticity not only from his visual art but also from his personality as a human in this era. He gave us a lot of stories about his journey, cultures, and differences between creative industries then/ now.

    On a hot Balinese afternoon, with the kind of heat that comes before a tropical storm, Feby and Tipi Jabrik are at the long family table at the back of Good Mantra. The restaurant is located at a busy intersection in one of the backstreets of Berawa. Inside, the restaurant feels like a laid-back living room with people working away on their laptops and chatting among themselves amidst the artworks and surfboards displayed throughout the open room.

    Friday afternoon, we came to Jewel Rocks’ offline store at Seminyak. The Sun which comes through the store’s window made a delightful reflection between the sunlight and the jewelry stones. We had a warm afternoon with Mel as the store owner of Jewel Rocks, talking about fashion, culture, and gender through her point of view as a creative person itself.

    On a perpetual journey to discover all the weird and wonders the world has to offer, Will Goldfarb’s Room 4 Dessert evokes a kind of dreamlike nostalgia.

    Stepping into Tandjung Sari hotel is like walking in a time capsule to a bygone era of Bali. We speak to Aviadi Purnomo, the hotel’s general manager on the property’s humble beginning and how he continues the vision of its founder.

    Andre and Tika are an inseparable couple bound by love. Love of art, food, lovely places, games, and of course, each other. Our late morning with them started with eggs, coffee, comedy-laced conversations, and card games.
