In the traditional #Balinese architecture, there is a typical gate- Angkul-angkul, it is the entrance to the yard, giving an access to Balinese compounds in many places of the island. The gate itself is richly decorated with kala’s head, floral ornaments, and vajra or ratna pinnacles. The presence of this gate offers an experience of mysterious and luxurious atmosphere.

Lighting it up!!!!Our Mandira’s team begins to prepare for Christmas Eve Dinner a special Angklung performance. What is angklung? Angklung is an Indonesian musical instrument consisting of two, three or four bamboo tubes suspended in a bamboo frame, bound with rattan cords. Each Angklung produces a single note or chord, so several players must collaborate in order to play melodies.
Because of the collaborative nature of Angklung music, playing promotes cooperation and mutual respect among the players, along with discipline, responsibility, concentration, development of imagination and memory, as well as artistic and musical feelings.”
Lawar is one of the most stereotypical Balinese cuisines. Anyone who has lived with a Balinese family will have surely been offered this spicy fare, particularly around ceremony time. “Bani ngajeng lawar?” (“Are you brave enough to eat lawar?”), they will ask, grinning. This expression speaks for itself – lawar is far removed from Western cuisine and for many it is an acquired taste
