FLY INTO LOMBOK!

Here in Lombok, we are happily anticipating the commencement of Jetstar direct flights from Australia, with the first flight from Perth due to arrive in Lombok on 24 September 2013.

We’re also celebrating the news that Tiger Air will start flying non-stop between Singapore and Lombok on 2 December 2013.

TIGER AIR DIRECT FLIGHTS SINGAPORE - LOMBOK!

The good news keeps coming with Jetstar ready to start direct Perth-Lombok flights this month and Tiger Air launching their direct Singapore-Lombok flights this December.

Access has always been the problem for developing tourism on Lombok and the lack of direct international flights to our island has hampered what should have been a strong growth over the past ten years.

WE’RE 150 ISSUES STRONG!

With this issue, The Lombok Guide is 150 issues strong! We never knew, when we first started this little paper to promote tourism in Lombok in late 2007, how it would take over our lives!

QUESTION: In the 60’s, people used to take acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird, people take Prozac to make it normal. 

The judge said it was justifiable homicide! I’m not saying my ex wife was abnormal, but her idea of a balanced diet was to have a pie in each hand.

RECONSTRUCTION OF JETTY AT SENGGIGI BEACH

Local businesses and residents were concerned when a bamboo platform appeared just off-shore in Senggigi Bay and official types started showing up on the beach near the jetty in front of Santosa Villas & Resort.

However, it seems that the Transport Department has finally decided to take charge and fix the impractical jetty built by the West Lombok Tourism Department in 2011.

COOKING WITH CLASS AT PONDOK ANGGREK PUTIH

When we heard about the new cooking classes at Pondok Anggrek Putih, we couldn’t wait to check it out. While Bali has a lot of cooking schools and classes, this is an area that is under-catered for in Lombok.

When we arrived, our charming hostess Nining was already cooking up a storm in her open-air kitchen on the verandah. The table was filled with a cornucopia of vibrant fresh vegetables and bunches of herbs, some of which are grown in the gardens at Pondok Anggrek Putih while others are sourced from nearby gardeners to ensure freshness and maximum flavour.

We can now put the rumours to an end – the new resort will be located on the site of the old “Yellow Monkey” amusement park in Montong.

IN GOOD TASTE

This issue, I wanted to share a simple recipe, as we are busy setting up a new menu at The Terminal Restaurant on Gili T.

At the moment, we have some beautiful fresh salmon from my friend, Bruno, who supplies some of the best fresh seafood on Lombok. As it is difficult to finish a whole salmon in time, I wanted to give a good preservation method that will extend the shelf life of this delicious fish by weeks.
