[INDONESIA TRAVEL SERIES] Jalan2Men 2013 – Bali – Episode 9 (Part 2)


Today is the awaited day As I’m going to travel to an island near Bali Where you can be one with the sea Therefore i need to set off the trip with slow motion Cos it’s cool The place we’re going to visit is a cliff in Nusa Ceningan You have to be ready at 8 am to get into the speedboat In order to get there I’m now heading to where I can blaze into my vacation And here’s a tribute song to it (inaudible dialog) We’ve arrived bro! We’re on Lembongan Jalan jalan men! In order to get to ceningan we ought to take Motorcycle… man! So we can see the scenery while enjoying the fresh air There’s no traffic Maybe you’re asking yourself,
why bicycle or motorcycle? The answer is.. This bridge! It’s impossible to use a car let alone a truck And if you’re going on foot it’s gonna take hours So if you lived here the lifestyle is quite relaxed Your work… Be one with the nature So when it’s high tide, you’re gonna be a fisherman But if it’s low tide… The sea is dried! I’m gonna be like my idol, walking on the surface of the sea So when it’s noon around 12pm, locals can literally take a step on the bottom of the sea And to harvest the seaweed If it’s me, I’m gonna dance it out this sea… It’s not like everyday you can dance on the sea But the most awesome trivia about islands around bali is that… Bali is surrounded by coral reefs So wherever you turned your head, you definitely going to see them And because people here are all creative, they can made statues out of them Where’s the door? (inaudible dialog) Now we are at a point cliff jumping The only one in Ceningan Island, they said.. Oh my god the sea, the waves, the naya…. I got to be one with the waves I got to be one Okay.. I had to do jump cliff So this place is quite famous because every year There’s hundreds of people jumps from here from all around the world This is a multinational cliff Turns out the toilet is so “poop-able” But enough talk craps I’m here to cliff jump Can you imagine when you cliff jumping and become one with that sea that swept I’ve been on 8 to 10 meter jump and now I’m going to level up Because I’ve got to do this from 13m But it looks like I got here late They say the right time to do this when it’s still early in the morning Around 8 am Because right now at 12pm the waves are quite scary It’ll be quite difficult to reach the rope ladder As you’ll get swiped really hard So you ought to wait for a moment until the waves more calm While you’re waiting don’t just stand there and do nothing and missing out stuffs Because it’s a waste when you just doing nothing while on a trip You have to be to have fun while you’re at it “Have fun di setiap kesempatan” (a pun) Woow, that rhymes “have fun di setiap kesempatan” C’mon let’s dance! Naah, I’m cleaning my shoes Let’s go jump… If there’s a wave you don’t want to go there instead you swim over there You should be fine, I’ll be there all the time You should swim there because there’s waves over here This is very dangerous, cos you can get killed I got be careful… Because if i…. AAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!! Jalan jalan men! When I jumped, it’s thrilling! It feels very fast When I jumped it feels like my soul still on the cliff and when I dive into the ocean that’s when it feels like my body and my soul got together again Everything was so fast Like your soul still looking from the cliff and then suddenly you realized you’re already in the water At first I was afraid and then that’s when I learned something from it Like when you’re having troubles with life and afraid to move forward Like when I was on the top of the cliff and saw big waves everywhere colliding with the reefs And if it were on hitting those reefs I’m surely done But that’s what we don’t know because we’re about to jump into the unknown But when you jumped it turns out it’s not scary at all And now I’m addicted to it It’s time for me to jump This is my true vacation! I got text when I was down there says I got credits That’s me, I toped up your credits She’s so kind and she sympathized with me I love you! Jalan jalan men! After I become one with the ocean I felt moved I remembered that the hanuman whispering something to my ear And he said there’s something out there that’s even more awesome than cliff jumping And that makes me think, is there more to life? Life is more than just having fun Sometimes fun is my comfort zone And I have to learn to live outside my comfort zone But where should I find a place where I can learn about it There’s a school… Which is green There’s a school near Ubud which inside a forest Welcome to green school! Welcome to the school that applies education which based on environmental Do you want to know how to live a life together with a nature? Then you’ve come to the right place What’s with this school?! So it’s basically like an ordinary school Playground, elementary all through to high school But there’s something unusual about this school This is a truly international school Where people around the world come here to get their children admitted to the school So this school belongs to a Canadian by the name of John Hardy And he really loves nature And now I ask ms. Ami to get a tour around the school And it’s clear the name green wasn’t just for a show offs They really implemented a sustainable life on every corner of the school For example Solar panel Where they absorbed solar energy Up and down here, We can have it up to 20 thousands Here they have ridiculous amount of solar panel tree And it stored the all of the absorbed energy in there To power up most of the facility in the school premises The power of the sun This is a living proof of what man made, technology, can be used symbiotically with God’s creation, which is nature I’ve yet to find a place where there are so many things aren’t wasted just like that This place literally does that, even your crap has it’s own use Have you guys checked the toilet? Not yet (inaudible dialog) When you have to go it’ll eventually be processed together with animal’s excrement And refine it to biogas or fertilizer I’m gonna take a dump now Bye guys… Trash is a treasure for them That is my treasure, how to live one with the nature What do you think, man? So far so green, bro Ms. Ami says, if you want to live together with the nature then you got to start loving them since you were little For example, children here studied about flora and fauna not just from the books But also to interact with them face to face And that is one of the basic principle the green school has (random chattering) They also have a little zoo! School and zoo! After we take half an hour touring around the school I found something awesome Do you know what? You want me to tell you what? Okay I’ll let you know All of the building inside the premises were
made out of bamboo School out of bamboo… It’s an elf’s school Why bamboo? Because first, John Hardy loves bamboo Where in Indonesia and especially in Bali Bamboo they tend to underestimate it As a cheap construction raw materials He wants people to realized that bamboo absorbed co2 twice as much instead of common wood I guess you guys didn’t know that? Yeah we were oblivious about that And then it’s a sustainable material where you can just throw them away.. and it will grow in only 7 years without having a special treatment Whereas wood, they need 30 years or more to grow And this is the advantages by using bamboo It can be constructed into an awesome bridge This is nuts! They weren’t using common raw materials Fixed.. I love this plant I am bamboo Look! Those kids washing their clothes in the river! And eventhough it’s an International school It’s roots still Indonesia Where all of the students here were taught Indonesian language Because it all comes back with a question of what is sustainable? It’s sustainable, earthly It all comes back again of which can live a sustainable life are the locals That they can learned from very early age It’s natural that they will learned local cultures Where do you come from? I’m from Australia Who taught you Indonesian language subject? Ms and mr teacher where they taught us many about the subject Because they taught a lot of Indonesian language subject But my personal opinion about the most awesome aspect of education in here is Have you ever come to a school where there’s a crystal to meditate? Usually only a person with a keen sense can actually felt the energy radiating from it The crystal was actually like a pendulum, you guys know it right? There is the center of it where tremendous of energy gathered And if you have a keen senses, you might feel sort of vibration emitting from the crystal They say it has a positive energy Maybe when you’re having a bad mood and touches it, it absorbs the negatives energy It absorbed all of the negatives energy inside you and converts it to a positive energy Give thanks to mother earth,
Give thanks to father sun Give thanks to the plants in the garden were the Mother and the Father are one Blessings on our food.
Selamat Makan (Lets eat!) And what’s more amazing than this was actually the things that keeps me amaze every single time The unique things about the grades from the early learning to highschool they have their own garden So it’s more of practical for them As for us, we did that when we reached college But here, they learned how to do it from when they were only 3 years old Learn to be a farmer So half of it they learnt it from the class and the rest they out it to use straight to the field Sounds very agriculture-ish So the ground around the school are used as a farm ground And the harvests will be used and served at the school canteen Wooow.. That is crazy! This popsicle were made from the very watermelon planted here and from their very own garden They create human being, not a robot That is so deep But I wanna be a robot! I’m going to sing a tribute song to these children A school which serves also as a community Here there’s more than a school but it’s much more than that It’s a community What does is mean?
Please can you explain to us Where all of the people was involved and contribute and encourage to be creative Gives something back to the community as the community gives to you Is that right? High five! Here you can meet and get to know people from everywhere Because we already lived in a global community And because of that I want to sing again As I saw the entire school I know it inspired me to get out there and discover the unknown Like they are one with nature, learn about them, respecting them That’s why I want to go the highest mountain, the deepest ocean to find something “Is there more to life?” I think there is
