Rice, to the Balinese, is more than just the staple food it is an integral part of the Balinese culture. The rituals of the cycle of planting, maintaining, irrigating, and harvesting rice enrich the cultural life of Bali beyond a single staple can ever hope to do. At the beginning of planting time, after the water buffalloes walk the rice fields several times to prepare them, ceremonies are held to carry the young stems of rice that have been nurtured in a special nursery. On each section of the rice fields, the corner nearest to Gunung Agung will receive the honor to be the first place to receive the young stems of rice. The water level in each section is perfect; little streams of water effortlessly flow from the highest section up on top of the hill to the very bottom section. The planning and responsiblity of the irrigation and planting schedule are arranged through subak, a Balinese system that ties together rice cultivation with its water temple system. Historical evidence dates this system to around the 11th century, yet the yield per acre of a Balinese rice field is about the highest in the world!

"La serriculture (ou culture sous serre) désigne la pratique qui consiste à cultiver des végétaux (soit en culture maraîchère ou en horticulture ornementale) à l'intérieur d'une serre afin de réunir des conditions hygrométriques et photopériodiques adaptées.

La culture sous serre permet de bénéficier de la luminosité naturelle avec la possibilité de rallonger la photopériode par des lumières artificielles tout en gardant le contrôle des conditions hygrométriques. Elle permet notamment de rallonger la période où l'on peut cultiver certains végétaux, ou de les cultiver en dehors des régions où on les trouve originellement.

Le serriculteur est un jardinier spécialisé dans la culture sous serre. Des formations de serriculteur sont disponibles".

Our culture we shall never forget, not only us, but all of us.

Ancient memories do come back.

When we used to swing, and laugh.

When we used to push each other and steal the swings.

When we used to throw things and hurt ourselves and others.

but they still were nice memories.

They always make me smile, and sometimes wish I was a child again.

Then, I would not have to face the bitter truth that life is not like they tought us it was.

When we were children, an apology was enough, but today, all kinds of punishment and torture do not suffice.

What can we do to make life better?

If anything, the United Nations make it worse.

We should change ourselves, before we try to change others.

We "The People" have the greatest power of all.

We have to unite and put our hands together.

We shall not fight, nor shall we allow fights.

This is what I think, but if you differ, feel free.

I love walking around in the woods and creating an image without any concepts. this is what I did today and it felt great!

It is amazing how the forest can change. In summer it's green and beautiful and in autumn it gets kind of scary, because you can death around you. Everything is slowly dying and it gets dark and foggy. I think this cycle of life is the most fascinating one.


I actually wanted to go with more dark tones, but I really liked the colours in this so I stayed with it, and I think it fits to the autumn's image of a half dead culture.

Eighteen years into this young life of mine and I'm being faced with so many decisions that will impact the rest of life. The next couple of years entail some incredible things including a road trip through Canada to explore my home country. I also plan to travel to Peru and Switzerland where I have family that live in the mountains raising thousands of sheep. Visiting them would be the opportunity of a life time and I happen to have a few friends that are willing to join me. One being Ansel Edwards and the other being this young lady named Victoria. We're all very cultural, Adventurous and excited to travel the world.

In many cultures, tea is often had at high class social events, such as afternoon tea and the tea party. It may be consumed early in the day to heighten alertness it contains theophylline and bound caffeine although there are also decaffeinated teas.

Tea is prevalent in most cultures in the Middle East. In Arab culture, tea is a focal point for social gatherings. In Iranian and Pakistani cultures, tea is so widely consumed that it is generally the first thing offered to a household guest.

In Pakistan, both black and green teas are popular and are known locally as sabz chai and kahwah, respectively. The popular green tea called kahwah is often served after every meal in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which is where the Khyber Pass is found, and in the Pashtun belt of Balochistan. In the Kashmir region of Pakistan, Kashmiri chai or "noon chai," a pink, milky tea with pistachios and cardamom, is consumed primarily at special occasions, weddings, and during the winter months when it is sold in many kiosks. In the northern Pakistan regions of Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan, a salty, buttered Tibetan-style tea is consumed

I wondered what the story of this piece was , i found this in an interview with Dale explaining The image .....


"Grimshaw’s new work on the street goes under the working title of ‘2 Worlds.’ These large outdoor pieces portray figures from Indonesian or African tribes, in ceremonial dress, placed in alien settings, such as Western cityscapes or amusement parks. The juxtaposition of these elements is intended to emphasize the gap between these two worlds. The artist is keen to portray the strength and beauty of the tribal people and their traditional make-up and decorative elements, set against more mundane or bleak images of Western society. He poses the question about how do we measure the quality of our existence, in a world so full of cultural and financial differences? As the artists says ‘the age-old, spiritual, tribal, and organic meets the corporate monsters of the West, such as Disney, in a riot of color and intensity, but behind all these visual games is the frightening reality that dominant cultures are encroaching on every corner of the world, causing ecological and environmental vandalism."
