InterContinental Bali Resort is renowned for showc

first_imgInterContinental Bali Resort is renowned for showcasing the best of Bali, with the essential components of Balinese Hindu philosophies, imagery and symbolism prevalent throughout its design. The Resort follows the principals of ‘Tri Hita Karana’, which is the balance and harmony between the three sources of life – humans, nature and God, while the architecture also honours the sacred axis between the holy mountain and the sea.InterContinental Bali Resort now continues this tradition with a comprehensive guestroom redesign programme, which sets new standards for luxury accommodation in Bali and introduces world-class room technology.Michel Chertouh, Regional General Manager for Bali Resorts, IHG, said, “As one of the iconic resort properties for IHG, the design of the new rooms has been conceived to bring the ‘Soul of Bali’ to life with features such as hand-painted batik prints and intricate wood carvings, coupled with personalised technologies that will set new standards in Bali.”Guest room designThe interiors have been designed by the Singapore-based ‘James Park Associates’, a renowned design consultancy that has an extensive knowledge of Bali and Indonesia, and specialises in creating exceptional guestrooms that pay homage to the location. The rooms’ most unique features are the full-wall mural paintings inspired by designs found on Balinese textiles.The bed head backdrops feature carved wood headboard panels with geometric lattice patterns typical of those seen on traditional Balinese doorways. A circular carved artefact features prominently in each room, mounted on the fabric-panelled accent wall of each lounge area.  The pendant lamps are a signature of the new InterContinental Bali guestrooms and suites, inspired by the elaborate terracotta crown finials of traditional Balinese thatched roofs. Each lamp also features a cast brass decoration depicting dragons, and Garuda – the winged messenger and carrier of the supreme god, Wishnu. The woven rattan material, ubiquitous to the tropics, is treated with an antique patina and used prominently in the wall panelling of the dressing rooms. The crafted furniture has been carefully designed to complement the hotel’s vernacular architecture, while also conveying a timeless, tropical aesthetic. Indonesian wood from sustainable sources is widely used, and is combined with accents such as hardwood veneers, lacquered tobacco leaf and faux-shagreen – resembling the textured skin of a stingray, while the hand-tufted wool rugs are characterised by local patterns. The rooms are completed with curated thematic paintings depicting Balinese Legong dancers.The extensive use of Indonesian marble authentically reflects the context of the bathrooms, while exotic imported stone brings a rich opulence to vanity counters and bath surrounds. Contemporary yet timeless fittings and fixtures, such as those from Hansgrohe’s ‘Citterio E’ range, complete the composition.All of the rooms retain their original teakwood flooring, carefully restored to bring new life to this rich and valuable material.Technology New technology and state-of-the-art facilities are being incorporated to anticipate every guest need and to meet the Resort’s ongoing environmental commitment to improve its carbon footprint and protect natural resources through the reduction of energy consumption and water usage.To enable guests to fully relax in their rooms and to enjoy a true home away from home experience, each room will be equipped with a High Definition Smart IPTV system, with a 43-inch wall-mounted screen, offering access to thousands of high quality digital TV and radio channels from around the world, as well as movies and TV series on demand, Internet radio, YouTube channel and live streaming via a high speed Internet connection. Guests can even watch more than one channel at a time via their own Android or iPad (and iPhone) devices. Other options via the IPTV system include a messaging interface for in-room dining and concierge services, and facilities such as a world clock, wake up call, interactive maps and interactive flight info.In line with the Resort’s ‘Green Engage’ sustainable environmental programme, each room is being fitted with a revolutionary energy management system featuring occupancy sensors, which will reduce negative impact and energy consumption by controlling lighting and air-conditioning thermostats when no one is present. Lights will come on automatically when the room is reoccupied and guests can change the settings for their own comfort. Halogen ceiling lights are being replaced with energy-saving LED downlights, while silent mini-bar fridges are being installed utilising an energy efficient compressor cooling unit to reduce power consumption.The impact of overuse of ground water by tourism – with a falling water table – is being felt all over Bali. Therefore, the renovated bathrooms have been fitted with low flow shower heads that reduce the water flow to 6.3 litres per minute; low flow taps; and high efficiency dual-flush toilets, reducing water usage by up to eight litres per flush by using only three – 4.5 litres at any one time. Bathrooms will be completed with an attractive range of accessories designed to harmonise with the new décor, synonymous with the style of the Resort.Finally, intelligent electrical control devices will be installed. These will include a master switch beside the bed, as well as bed top and desktop level universal power points and USB charging ports.InterContinental Bali Resort is a five-star luxury resort, which rests alongside the magnificent golden-sand beach of Jimbaran Bay, complete with five swimming pools, award-winning restaurants and an internationally-acclaimed spa.last_img read more

indelible "tryst with destiny" of 1947 Or to self-propel Prime Minister Narendra Modi into an orbit synchronous with Jawaharlal Nehru Conventional wisdom tells us that though GST is the "biggest tax reform since independence" it is not quite independence itself No wonder then that Narendra Modi came under severe attack for daring to equate the two and in the process for trying to appropriate credit for ushering in GST While everybody has panned Modi for being a limelight-hogger very few thought it necessary to question conventional wisdom itself John Kenneth Galbraith had said this about

from religious scriptures to drive home his point In sharp contrast to Nehru’s "tryst with destiny speech" in which he referred only to Mahatma Gandhi and skirted any mention of stalwarts of his time Modi showered praise on the entire political leadership including the Opposition for the economic integration of India With President Pranab Mukherjee Vice President Hamid Ansari and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda on the podium it was clear that the government had done its bit to make it a truly bipartisan event There is unique consistency in the Congress leadership trying to deprecate the Modi government on patently bipartisan issues like GST demonetisation and surgical strikes On the GST issue perhaps the Congress leadership genuinely feared that the mid-night session was intended to eclipse Nehru’s speech This just highlights the Congress leadership’s inability to come to terms with the fast changing political realities In his role as the chief minister of Gujarat earlier and as the prime minister of the country now Modi has been consistently challenging the well-entrenched notion of conventional wisdom He has been setting agendas which respond to the changing realities of the country The move to implement the GST is clearly aimed at steering the country away from " chalta hai" (business as usual approach) and force the business community into tax-compliance If one looks at the series of steps beginning from the scheme to declare black money demonetisation passing laws to check ill-gotten wealth and GST there is a clear pattern A day after his speech in Parliament Modi addressed a large gathering of chartered accountants and gave them a subtle warning that they should refrain from encouraging tax evasion The implicit message to the community of chartered accountants was that they could be next on the firing line in the fight against black money Much of what Modi has been doing clearly defies the established notion of pragmatic politics Yet in people’s perception Modi is seen as a doer who irrespective of consequences has been trying to set the country on the right course The prime minister refuses to cling to dogmas whether ideological or political and comes out with a innovations that promise change The Congress on the other hand seems quite bereft of new ideas and is desperately holding on to the Nehruvian past and moorings which are archaic and rendered irrelevant in today’s time They seem to have been completely overtaken by the march of events that are shaping the New India Except for a few leaders like Nitish Kumar in the Opposition the Congress-Left combine has been maintaining an ostrich-like approach to unfolding politics Galbraith’s words on conventional wisdom seem like a forecast on India’s politics He writes: "The conventional wisdom dies but does not surrender Society with intransigent cruelty may transfer its exponents from category of wise man to that of old foggy or even stuffed shirt" Nehru’s "tryst with destiny" speech was as much a defining moment for India’s history as Modi’s GST speech on June 30 There is no parameter to measure exactly which was bigger or smaller just that both were stellar events in India’s history at that point in time Trying to compare the two and complain bitterly is to argue on who is greater between Gavaskar and Tendulkar rather than enjoy watching both knowing they were both great in their time The Congress party’s obdurate refusal to acknowledge the to march of time and events may lead it to complete political obsolescence And that is not a good thing for India’s politics In a new teaser trailer Disney offers a sneak peek into its next big animated movie Moana Namely we get the backstory to Maui a tattooed demigod voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

song by Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda Opetaia Foai and Lion King composer Mark Mancina The movie is set for release this Thanksgiving Write to Raisa Bruner at raisabruner@timecomIDEAS xoJanecom is where women go to be their unabashed selves and where their unabashed selves are applauded Friends has a few recurring backstories Phoebes shady past Rosss divorce but one seems to come up again and again: Monica used to be fat in high school We actually get to see it in Season Two Mr and Mrs Geller drop off boxes from Monicas childhood bedroom The friends all happen to be over when they unearth a video of Monica and Rachel prepping for prom The tape clicks into the VCR and theres Monica in a fat suit and a billowy maroon dress clutching a sandwich "Some girl ate Monica" crows Joey And the audience laughs I thought grown-up life would basically be a Friends rerun As a kid I clung most to that image of adulthood ’90s New York life seemed so fun and glamorous the impossibly large apartments the casually fashionable overalls the Hootie & the Blowfish concerts My family wasnt hopelessly devoted to the show so I watched syndicated episodes on the tiny static-y TV propped on my bedroom dresser Reruns came in a never-ending stream A lot of nights I fell asleep to the soothing chords of Smelly Cat Its embarrassing to admit but when I look at my life now it echoes back to these episodes Maybe Friends is just a great look at mid-20s life or maybe I drifted off to Rosss whine so often that these ideas sunk into my subconscious I didnt move to New York but I did move to a big US city I spend way too much time in coffee shops I have a group of friends who are here for me whenever my lifes a joke Im broke my love lifes DOA The Brief Newsletter Sign up to receive the top stories you need to know right now View Sample Sign Up Now When Friends hit Netflix in January I was ready Now I could stream episodes all day and night until my roommate begged me to shut it off So much of it was how I remembered Certain scenes made me scream-laugh so hard that I was afraid the neighbors would complain But Id forgotten about the relentless fat jokes They pop up every few episodes Skinny beautiful OCD Monica used to be fat and her friends will never let her forget it Maybe the jokes didnt register with me when I was younger In high school hating my body was the norm But I have to wonder as I formed my opinions on lattes and boyfriends and the merits of having a capuchin monkey as a pet what ideas about fatness versus success crept into my head during that formative TV-watching Because when everyone taunts Monica about the girl she used to be I begin to suspect something: If Monica was still fat they wouldnt be her friends In flashbacks Monica exists only as a punchline What effect did this have on me at 13 14 15 To see women defined only by their bodies To know that only when you get skinny do you star in your own show Monica becomes real only when she loses the weight Before that shes just a caricature I was a fat kid; I am a fatter adult What does this mean for the girls like me who never become thin Are we relegated to side roles and stereotypes in our own lives Of course this isnt true But I think it sometimes dark and secret: The fat girl doesnt get to be the protagonist What does the opposite mean then To stay fat or horror of horrors get fatter Does this lessen my successes the stories Ive told the friends Ive made the life Ive built Sometimes I hear my friends dismiss people we knew as teenagers with "Oh he got fat" and my stomach flips as I wonder what other people say about me Thats what the fat jokes on Friends feel like to me like someone I know and trust is leaning over to whisper "You matter less because of your body" then expecting me to laugh I know the simple solution is to just stop watching I boycotted How I Met Your Mother when the fat jokes got too vicious Maybe its because I fell in love with Friends young before I knew the possible damage But I love so much about the show and I just dont want to turn it off I wish there was some edited version where I could skip over the worst of the jokes I know Friends has other problems with diversity and homophobia and I never expected it to be a perfect show But when those Monica jokes come up they always feel like a punch to the gut Its not just Friends either The "formerly fat" story line shows up often enough to be considered a trope The heroic skinny person earns their TV life by shedding the weight A recent example: In New Girl the fit and fastidious character Schmidt used to be chubby (and shlubby) in college He briefly reunites with his college girlfriend Elizabeth who remains heavier But instead of the skinny girls on the show who wear Peter Pan collars and sleek cocktail dresses Elizabeth dresses like a slob She doesnt know how to present herself in social situations The joke is that Schmidt is embarrassed by her I could barely finish the season I didnt need these reminders about how the world views womens bodies then or now You never forget being a fat teenage girl When my skinnier friends ran into certain stores at the mall I lingered by the accessories sliding bangles up and down my wrist and avoiding the eyes of salesgirls I wanted to apologize for the space I took up to confess that I knew they didnt carry my size But it was worse when my mom took me to the designated plus-size stores where I stood back as far from the door as I could in case a classmate wandered by Walking out of the mall Id keep the label of the shopping bag turned towards my leg At home Id cut the XXL tags from every shirt collar Since then Ive read so much about feminism and body positivity and the fat acceptance movement I know that bodies are not inherently good or bad My fatness is a part of me both my history and my everyday but it is not the only part of me The Monica in the prom video is maybe a size 18 or 20 In high school I wore a 16 or 18 When I look at her I see myself That chubby teenage girl afraid of her own ambitions because who could she ever be besides the fat girl I look at photos of my teenage self now and I think I look beautiful I wish I could reassure her that she would grow past these insecurities Ive learned to celebrate the good things my body can do Walking through Europe after college dancing to Talking Heads albums in my apartment now I try to remember that there are good days and bad days; that loving my body isnt a one-time goal but an ongoing process One joke hit me particularly hard and its a joke Monica makes at her own expense She wants to go on a date with Rachels high school boyfriend Chip and she argues her case "The fat girl inside of me really wants to go" says Monica "I owe her this I never let her eat" A life of withholding This is the joke The scene ends I bet Fat Monica was a great friend I bet she kept meticulously organized Trapper Keepers and got really competitive over pop quizzes She probably spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying out recipes for her family while she dreamed of being a New York City chef I bet she was just as funny and intense and neurotic and loyal as the woman she grows into I bet she just went by Monica and I bet she was fantastic Megan Kirby wrote this article for xoJane Read next: Why Im Glad I Was Bullied

money decided the title City would already be crowned champions after splashing more than 200 million pounds ($26022 million) on reinforcements this summer Even though their opponents Brighton & Hove Albion had broken their own transfer record three times this window the Seagulls’ outlay was roughly one-tenth that of City — forcing them to mind the gap What Pep Guardiola has really bought himself is options with three debutants in the starting XI and a further 206 million pounds’ worth of talent on the bench After a frustrating first half which highlighted City’s failures up front from last season change was always going to come and the breakthrough arrived within minutes of the introduction of Leroy Sane in the 68th minute The scorer was all too familiar with Sergio Aguero capitalising on a delightful pass from David Silva Before the game Guardiola spoke cryptically about not always playing Aguero and Jesus up front but on Saturday he gave Brighton the full double blast which paid off — eventually When and how to employ the pair may define Guardiola’s season Afterwards the manager was predictably delighted with all the riches at his disposal and promised that City will “improve the way we attack” this season His fullbacks will be crucial to that game plan with former Tottenham defender Kyle Walker providing the pace out wide so obviously missing last season Danilo a right-footed left back was less impressive but he is likely to play second fiddle to Benjamin Mendy once the Frenchman recovers from the thigh strain that kept him out on Saturday “I was very happy

wives (Source: Thinkstock Images) Related News This may well sweep many an Indian husband off his feet — and evoke jealousy among some spouses — but a British survey has found that several married men felt their mothers-in-law were more attractive than their wives To be precise more than half of married men found their moms-in-law attractive — and a quarter have a genuine crush on them the poll of 1500 men showed Eight in 10 men said they had a good relationship with their mother-in-laws while three in 10 claimed there was a secret attraction Eight in 10 men also admitted that they had a great relationship with their spouse’s mother While nearly half of men said their wife’s style and overall clothing taste was heavily influenced by her mother one in eight claimed that their mother-in-law was more stylish than their partner “These findings are really interesting to see I think because popular culture is so youth-biased older adults can feel undervalued even unseen” said psychologist and author Linda Papadopoulos who worked with Peter Hahn for the study Unsurprisingly many women aged 50 and over often lack confidence — when really they should be celebrating their age and embracing their beauty “Many women feel let down by retailers who seem to only cater for one size and shape — more brands need to start celebrating the diversity of female beauty” said Papadopoulos who wrote the popular psychology books “The Man Manual” and “What Men Say What Women Hear” The results show many men have high opinion of their partner’s mother and this goes against the old cliche of the mother-in-law being a bit of a battle axe Daily Mail reported “Most women would actually take it as a compliment that their mother is thought of as attractive as it is a great indication that style
