Bali priest Four Seasons cleansing the resort’s energy

Bali priest Four Seasons at  Jimbaran Bay has taken it a step further with a full-time Hindu priest safeguarding its spiritual aura as it prepares to welcome back guests in the not-too-distant future.Even though there’s a lockdown in Bali, housekeepers, security guards, engineers and gardeners are still protecting and maintaining the physical assets of most of the hotels.  Each day, traditional healer and full-time priest Ajik Ngurah maintains the energy and aura at the Resort by placing offerings at the temple and more than 300 shrines throughout the property. The offerings are to ensure that once guests return, they will continue to feel the same peaceful and tranquil energy.Ajik Ngurah was not always a priest, even though he is a descendent of the ancient Mengwi kingdom. Ngurah joined the Resort as a security guard on its opening in 1993. Early on during his career, he started receiving signs and felt the calling to become a priest but ignored the signals. Suddenly he was surrounded by bad luck: his family developed serious illnesses and there was a major vehicle accident, both catalysts for Ngurah’s realization that he could no longer ignore his true destiny.

He had planned to resign from his role as security guard, but the Resort created a new role which enabled him to remain on the team while pursuing the path to priesthood. His present job is to look after the spiritual and cultural connections of both staff and guests and can usually be found at the Resort temple, just below the lobby and part of the Resort’s Balinese village concept. Ordinarily, a typical day for Ngurah is to welcome guests with a Balinese blessing, cleanse their energy with a holy water purification ritual, conduct on-site temple tours or tours to an off-site 9th-century cave temple, meditate or lead a full moon ceremony for staff.Bali priest Four Seasons Resorts pic Farboes

Outside the Resort, Ngurah fulfills his duties as an ordained Balinese-Hindu priest in his village and Jimbaran community. He is revered as a traditional healer for chakra rebalancing and energy clearing and is certified as a meditation teacher.Having a full-time priest at Four Seasons /Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay is an essential role that underpins the resort’s traditional Balinese philosophy, Says General Manager Uday Rao, “Guests often comment on the ‘unseen’ energy they feel here, the peace and tranquility, the deep connection to the people and culture of Bali. Ajik Ngurah’s role is focused on maintaining this harmony and balance between God, Man and Nature – something that is more important now than ever before.

With the island presently under partial lockdown, through ceremonies, Ajik Ngurah is cleansing the resort’s energy and seeking protection from the gods. The Resort’s other employees are making sure everything is in perfect condition so that when guests return, they will experience the best of this Indonesian paradise.

New Bali song launched by Rich Brian

New Bali song launched by Rich Brian to express his love for the island and his country of origin  but now based in the US. The new  song called Bali” and it’s featuring Guapdad 4000 and it’s came out on 10/04/2020. It’s just a really fun song, it’s really melodic and catchy. At the same time, there’s also rapping in it that’s kind of like that rap-melodic stuff that people do sometimes and I haven’t done too much of it because it’s kind of a new territory for me. It has kind of like a reggae vibe on the beat.

Brian stated that tt has been produced  together with  Guapdad 4000 was amazing to work with and never met before, but we were just like texting about it. He was really cool because he did his verse and then he sent it to me. Usually, when I collab with people, they send me their verse, whatever, and they’re just like, ‘Alright, I did my verse, this is what you get.’ But he was actually asking me what do I think about it and he was down to take notes and stuff like that.

So it was a great collaboration and I can’t wait for it to come out because it’s definitely, again, a weird time to be in right now. I’ve never seen anybody just like globally staying home. I don’t think this ever happened before in this world. And the thing that I feel like keeps a lot of people sane right now is music.

Bali Lyrics

Always workin’ hard, I just got it in my genes (Uh)
Think so much, I think my brain is burnin’ calories (Uh)
I’m mostly quiet, but I’m always wildin’ when I drink (Uh)
To you, it’s fantasies, but to me, it’s just last week (Uh)
I don’t never stress none of that shit from yesterday
At nine, I got a date, told her that she could pick the place
Don’t tell me we’re the same, little bitch, this is night and day
I thought we was in Bali, shit feel like holidays

I spent my day with a smile and with my soul intact
But you just spent your day on simpin’, hopin’ that she gon’ call you back, yeah
Stop answerin’ all the questions when nobody asked
You geekin’ when you winning, and it shows me you ain’t used to that, yeah
My life is startin’ to look like a completed bucket list, ayy
You know you in some trouble if your girl know I exist
I been winning and I know that’s what you hate to see
I feel like I’m six foot tall whenever you stand next to me
Yeah, my schedule’s packed, I got a pool, I haven’t swam in it
Like yeah, I’m on a date, we watchin’ Parasite, she lovin’ it
Like ayy, yeah, ayy, I like to keep my dates affordable
Like ayy, yeah, ayy, that’s why I got on Forbes’ article, like ayy
You like to hate, but you can’t walk a mile inside my shoes, ayy
I’m schoolin’ all these rappers, but I never went to school, uh
You say you rollin’ deep, those numbers ’bout to get reduced
I came from Indonesia, but inside I never moved

Uh, always workin’ hard, I just got it in my genes (Uh)
Think so much, I think my brain is burnin’ calories (Uh)
I’m mostly quiet, but I’m always wildin’ when I drink (Uh)
To you, it’s fantasies, but to me, it’s just last week (Uh)
I don’t never stress none of that shit from yesterday
At nine, I got a date, told her that she could pick the place
Don’t tell me we’re the same, little bitch, this is night and day
I thought we was in Bali, shit feel like holidays

I just been gnarly like Marley, at parties off Henny, I’m spinnin’ from sips (Henny)
Jigga been sellin’ the weed and molly to Mollys to get ’em my zips (Molly)
I need to get on the phone with NASA, it’s obvious it’s an eclipse (NASA)
I’m shine in that shade, and the foreign I drive in not German, bruh, it’s an Eclipse
That’s an old Mitsubishi, my flow like Rikishi
I float like a buoy, musubis and boobies
I do it with hoes on the beaches
Who be on my peepee, ruby on my pinky, yeah
She be sleepy, I be creepin’, secret keepin’

Tree House Har’s Garden in Ubud

The treehouse is currently listed on Airbnb for under $55 per night, and it’s located at Har’s Garden, an organic farm. It’s about 3 miles from Ubud’s center. It’s also located just a few miles from a number of other draws, like the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, which is a natural habitat for the Balinese long-tailed monkey.

It’s owned by Har, who is an organic farmer. Har used to work as a sailor and musician to make ends meet. Now, at 40 years old, he owns this organic farm and lives with his wife in a tree house on this property.

The garden doesn’t  really smell like manure or fertilizer, but Hr doesn’t use fertilizer or manure in his garden. Instead, he uses a “compost made up of everything from here, like the grass and the parts we don’t use from the plants after harvesting.”

A short garden tour that lasts about one hour and a longer farming tour that lasts three to four hours, depending on visitors and their questions.

The latter includes hands-on farming experience — and guests can take part in the whole process, from planting the seeds to experiencing the methods Har uses to harvest.

The farm currently has two tree houses that guests can stay in.

Guests can stay in one of two tree houses, and both are equipped with air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and hot water.

At night, you can hear the sounds of the lizards and geckos resonating throughout the jungle, and in the mornings I heard the roosters crow right before sunset.

To climb up each tree house, there is a short set of steep stairs leading up to the front door.

Har and his wife decorated each tree house, and the furniture boasted a rustic and vintage vibe.

Guests staying in the tree house get free breakfast, but if you’re not staying at Har’s Garden, you can still have breakfast on the property if you coordinate ahead of time — it comes to about $12 per person.

11 critical iPhone Security Settings

11 critical iPhone Security 11 critical iPhone Security Setting Hacks to use Right Now

11 critical iPhone Security if one object you own encapsulates who you are, how you think, and what you do, it’s your smartphone. Our phones not only contain our contacts and messages, but capture and store countless other metrics about our lives, from financial records to health data to myriad communications with everyone we know.

Smartphones also contain data about the places we go (and the routes we took to get there) as well as the searches we make and websites we browse (revealing what’s on our minds). Thanks to journal and to-do apps, they even document our goals, hopes, and dreams. And smartphones aren’t just data-retention devices; the apps and services we use on them broadcast data about us to third parties.

(Indonesian, English, Dutch, French spoken)


That’s why it’s so important to understand what privacy and security protections the smartphone you use offers—and to make sure you have such protections enabled. I’ve written before that Apple is unique among modern tech giants in that it builds its products with privacy at the forefront. But many of those protections and tools available on every iPhone only make a difference if you’re aware of them—and judging from my conversations with friends, many people aren’t.

If you’re an iPhone user, these are the security and privacy features you need to know about—and should be using.

Security code autofill

What it is: Many sites and apps—from Facebook and Google to financial services—offer two-factor authentication, or 2FA. With 2FA enabled, logging into a website or app requires both your password and a unique code that is texted to your phone number or delivered via an app such as Google Authenticator. You have to input this code in order to gain access to your account. Even if someone else has your password, they won’t be able to break into your accounts if they can’t get the code.
Your iPhone can enter texted security codes for you.

Your iPhone can enter texted security codes for youThe problem is many people choose not to enable 2FA, which has traditionally been a pain involving hopping back and forth and copying and pasting. So Apple introduced a feature in iOS 12 and higher called security code autofill. Now when you log into an app or website where you have 2FA enabled, you no longer need to navigate to the Messages app to retrieve your texted 2FA code. As soon as the text with the code arrives, it’ll be routed to the iPhone’s keyboard where you can just tap on the code to autofill it into the security field in an app or website.

Why it’s important: Apple eliminated the most annoying thing about 2FA, which means more people are now likely to adopt it. If an app or website offers 2FA, you should enable it immediately. Thanks to iOS’s security code autofill, 2FA will no longer slow you down.

How to enable it: Security code autofill is built into iOS 12 and higher, so you don’t need to enable the feature on your iPhone. When you get a text with a 2FA security code, it’ll be automatically routed to the code field on the app or website you are trying to log into.

You will, however, need to enable 2FA on any apps or websites you want to use the security feature with. I highly recommend enabling 2FA on every social media and financial site you use. You can see if some of the sites you use offer 2FA here.
Password reuse auditing

What it is: iOS has long had the Keychain, an encrypted password manager that saves your usernames and passwords so they can be auto-filled on apps and websites you log in to. But with iOS 12 and higher, your Keychain now has a password reuse auditing tool built in. What this does is identify every instance where you’ve reused a password for multiple sites and apps.

Why it’s important: Password reuse is a major security problem. Before iOS 12, if you used the same four or five password variations out of laziness across hundreds of sites and apps, you weren’t alone. Two recent surveys found that 59% of people use the same password everywhere, and 83% of people reuse the same password on multiple sites. If just one of those sites or apps gets hacked, your information anywhere else you used that password is at risk.

If you’re reusing passwords on multiple sites, cut it out—with your iPhone’s help.

Stop Reusing PasswordsBut now thanks to password reuse auditing in iOS, you have no excuse to be lazy anymore. You can see which websites you’ve reused passwords on and then give them unique passwords. However, that’s not the biggest advantage of this tool. The real advantage is that it visualizes how vulnerable you’ve made yourself by reusing the same password on multiple sites—and as we’ll see in a moment, you can easily create unique strong passwords for every site and app you use.

How to enable it: iOS’s password reuse auditing tool is a built-in feature in iOS 12 and higher. To see it in action, and to see which sites and apps you’ve reused passwords on, go to the Settings app on your iPhone, scroll down, and tap “Passwords & Accounts,” and then tap “Website & App Passwords.” This is where your Keychain is located. You’ll need to authenticate with Face or Touch ID, and then you’ll be taken to a list of your app and site passwords.

Any site or app that has an exclamation mark in a triangle next to it means you are also using its password for another site or app. If you see this symbol, tap on it. On the next screen, you’ll see a link that says “Change Password on Website.” This will take you to that site’s password management screen where you can change your password.

11 critical iPhone Security

If you have dozens or hundreds of services that use the same password, creating unique passwords may seem daunting—BUT do it anyway. If you have a couple hundred accounts with passwords, just change 25 passwords a day for eight days, and then every account you use will have a unique password in little more than a week.
Automatically create strong web and app passwords

What it is: iOS 12 and higher also has a feature that will automatically create complex and unique passwords for websites and apps. These are passwords that are so complex it is doubtful anyone could ever guess them—even you.

Use strong passwords
If you can remember a password, it isn’t strong enough.

But you don’t even need to write these passwords down. iOS will automatically save them to your Keychain, and they will be synced across all your iOS devices and Macs, where they’ll automatically be filled in when you log into a site or app.

Why it’s important: As we’ve seen, even if you already have a pretty strong password, it becomes much weaker if you use it at multiple sites. But most of us don’t even have strong passwords. Generally, people choose weak passwords because they are easier to remember. But password managers, like the one built into iOS and MacOS, have made remembering passwords obsolete. Still, the problem remains that many people simply don’t create strong, random, and unique passwords. So now iOS will do it for you.

How to enable it: Next time you create an account in an app or at a website on your iPhone, when you select the “Create password” field, you’ll now see iOS has automatically inserted a unique password in the field. Tap the “Use Strong Password” button to use the recommended password, and iOS will automatically store it in your Keychain. iOS never generates the same strong password twice.
Set encrypted messages to auto-delete

11 critical iPhone Security

What it is: iOS automatically uses end-to-end encryption on all messages sent using Apple’s Messages app. This means no one can read your messages except for you, and the recipient, not even Apple—even if the company is ordered to by a government agency. Yet end-to-end encryption won’t stop someone who has access to your phone from accessing your messages, which is why you should set them to auto-delete sooner rather than later. Once an encrypted message is deleted from your device, it is virtually impossible to recover (though a copy will remain on recipients’ devices until they delete it, too).
Automatically deleting old iMessages is a good security measure—and it saves storage space, too.

Why it’s important: By default, iOS will store all your iMessages on your phone forever—and they will be transferred to your new phone when you get one. But these messages often contain very personal communications with our loved ones or details that could make us or them vulnerable. For example, parents will often communicate with their children about their schedules and whereabouts, such as what time they will be at soccer practice. A third party who gains access to years worth of those messages could reasonably work out where your child is going to be and when. Other times, we’ll share sensitive information with our family or friends via text messages—like the code to our home security system if a friend is watching our place while we are away. This information would be invaluable to a stalker or thief, and there’s no reason a copy of it should be sitting around on your phone for years.

Beyond issues of privacy, years’ worth of text messages can take up an insane amount of space on your smartphone. Back when I had my text messages set to save forever, I looked at how much space they were taking up on my 64GB iPhone: 8.5GB! And I never go back and look at text messages that are more than a week old.

How to enable it: On your iPhone go to Settings>Messages>Keep Messages. On the next screen, you’ll be able to select to keep messages for 30 days, one year, or forever. By default, this is set to forever, but I recommend everyone set it to 30 days, or at the most, one year.

Use Safari

Using iOS’s default browser is a privacy measure in itself.

What it is: iOS’s built-in web browser.

 

Silence Spam RobocallersSilence spam and robocallers.

What it is: iOS now offers a feature that is charitably named “Silence Unknown Callers.” What it really does is stop robocallers and spam callers from annoying you.

Why it’s important: Spam and robocalls are a major problem in America. They lead to wasted time, productivity, and in some cases, higher phone bills. The problem is so pervasive, that YouMail’s Robocall Index says 4.7 billion robocalls were placed in January 2020 alone. That’s 153 million each day.

While carriers, states, and the federal government have taken steps to diminish the robocall scourge, Apple isn’t waiting around for things to get better through legislative initiatives. In iOS 13, the company introduced the “Silence Unknown Callers” feature that, when activated, will automatically send unidentifiable calls to your voicemail (which, let’s be honest, no one uses anymore anyway).

How to enable it: Go to Settings>Phone and scroll down until you see the “Silence Unknown Callers” toggle. Tap this switch so it’s on (green), and from then on, all calls from unknown numbers (ie: those not in your Contacts) will be silenced for good.
Quickly disable Touch ID and Face ID

11 critical iPhone Security

What it is: Depending on which iPhone you own, you use either Touch ID or Face ID to unlock your phone without needing to enter a passcode. They’re handy but don’t offer the same amount of constitutional protections that passcodes offer. That’s why iOS now allows users to disable Touch ID and Face ID at a moment’s notice.
If worse comes to worse, you can disable Touch ID and Face ID.

Why it’s important: Thanks to Fifth Amendment protections, in most instances, law enforcement can’t compel someone to enter a passcode to unlock a device without a search warrant. But prior to 2019, some courts had said that biometric authentication methods aren’t similarly protected. In many states, that meant law enforcement could force you to unlock your phone using Face ID or Touch ID. However, that all changed in January 2019 when a judge ruled that law enforcement forcing someone to biometrically unlock their phone “runs afoul” of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. But law enforcement aside, while Touch ID and Face ID are convenient, both leave you vulnerable to unwanted unlocks when you are sleeping.

How to enable it: Go to Settings>Emergency SOS and make sure the “Call with Side Button” toggle is on (green). Now, whenever you want to quickly disable Face ID or Touch ID, press the iPhone’s Side button five times. A screen will appear that shows three sliders: power off, Medical ID, and Emergency SOS. Below them will be a cancel button. Once this screen appears, Face ID and Touch ID are automatically disabled, and you’ll only be able to unlock your phone with your passcode (keep in mind, once you unlock it with a passcode, Face ID and Touch ID are reenabled).
In a worst case scenario, nuke your data
Deleting your data might be painful, but it’s better than letting it fall into the wrong hands.

What it is: iOS offers a feature that deletes all data on your iPhone if the wrong passcode is entered 10 times in a row.

Why it’s important: The contents of your iPhone contains personal and private details about every aspect of your life. If the worst happens and someone steals it, it’s good to know that with this security feature, the thief won’t have endless opportunities to guess your passcode. Once they get it wrong for the tenth time, all the data on your iPhone will automatically be deleted and can’t be recovered.

Yes, this is a worst-case scenario, but it’s better than having all your personal and private data in the hands of a thief or hacker.

How to enable it: Go to Settings>Face ID & Passcode (Touch ID & Passcode on an older iPhone) and at the bottom of the screen, toggle the “Erase Data” switch to on.

t took about a year to build the house and it was a lot of work. We wanted it to be photogenic so that we could shoot content there.

‘I was very specific about making sure our house photographed well,’ Lauren added.

‘If I’m doing an Instagram Story job in the bathroom, talking about teeth whitening or something, I want the background to look good.’

‘We’re keeping the cost of the house private because eventually we want to rent it out. But it’s comparable to the prices of the nicer houses in Canggu,’ Jack said.

Prime real estate in Canggu, Bali, can range between AUD$350,000 and AUD$1million.

The 29-year-old confirmed to FEMAIL that the entire property was purchased doing sponsorship deals and creating branded content on Instagram.

The lovebirds previously said they won’t do a sponsored post for less than $3,000 USD ($3,948 AUD).

The most Jack has been paid for one post is $9,000 USD ($11,846 AUD) while the most Lauren has ever got from one snap is $7,500 USD ($9,872 AUD).

‘I did a job for a phone company where I flew out for three days; there were two days filming and then I had to do five photos on Instagram, and that was $35,000,’ he said.

‘We’ve even turned up to jobs before that which we’ve charged thousands for, and we’ve got there and they’ve been like, “your rates are so low”.’

Jack credited Lauren for designing much of the interior, which features the signature bohemian style she and her sister Ellie Bullen have become known for on social media.

He took a leap of faith seven years ago and quit his job as a carpet cleaner after deciding he needed some adventure in his life.

‘It was literally waking up one morning and I wanted to try something different. I flew out on my own with no plan and just wanted to see what came at me,’ he said at the time.

After two years of constant travel Jack decided to purchase a camera and document his travels under the brand name ‘Do You Travel’.

‘I basically created it to share my experiences, it wasn’t about making lots of money. I didn’t expect to make money or for it to blow up. But that created my new career,’ he said.

Lauren runs her own blog on the side – called Gypsea Lust – and the pair sell Lightroom presets to fans and fellow photographers to edit their photos with.

Global brands such as Royal Caribbean Cruises, Disney, Air NZ, AirBnB, Tiffany & Co have all approached the duo with work.

But Jack insists the pair only do sponsored posts if they support the brand, company or tourism board.

‘I was contacted by brands way before I started accepting offers. I didn’t care about making money, it was always just a project I did for fun. Eventually as I grew bigger some of the offers were too good to turn down,’ he said.

‘I only promote or post about the things I truly like or believe in, which is very important to me and why my posts resonate with so many.’

Jack did admit that the job can get overwhelming at times and that they do sometimes travel to places ‘for the sole purpose of a “gram worthy” shot’.

But you won’t find either of them complaining about the life Instagram has been able to afford them.

‘It is almost a dream. Being able to do what I want every day is nice,’ he said.

‘It is ideal, I never really expected to find someone I could share this with, so it worked out really well
