 I was born in Sampalan Kelod village , Kecamatan Dawan, Klungkung, Bali - Indonesia. I can not leave my previous  memory attached with all unforgettable happiness.

Kali unda river, greenery , meadow on left and right side of my village make an exciting harmony for this live.In early morning all farmers starting their activities by brought their own cows to the yard or hilly near by their home and continue working in their rice paddies. House wife in Klungkung loved cooking very much. They kept patient to keep their children and husband by cooking Balinese food in their lovely kitchen. In that year ( 1980's ) , we were still using public bathing and washing in ' kali unda ' river. Every morning and evening, we went to the river to picked up  natural water and brought  it at home for cooking. Washing and bathing at the river. We were feeling in the warm charming of live in Bali social civilization without any competition between us. 

In daily live many housewife filled their activity by making traditional weaving cloth - Endek. The motif, material which was using  really typical Sampalan, Klungkung - Bali. They  were creating  this cloth patiently by their own pretty hand.Live simple made this live so wonderful. I felt there was development on population education. Every family tried to upgrade themselves   by improving their children education. On last day our grandmother can  learn in elementary school only but after several years has changed and they can work until university. We should know that Balinese in Klungkung have strong attempt to work & learn in Java island as Jakarta, Surabaya, Malang, Yogyakarta, etc.

When i was a kid, i felt happy along my day. I would never forget when i was studying in kinder-garden. I was the best student in the school, lucky i can read  faster then others. My little friends kept hold me and  made me  happy. I brought traditional cake and pocket money at Rp.25 ( It's really big meaning for my live ), My beautiful grandmother give me pocket money & cake for my daily snack . But social live  has burn in early age, my little friends gave me present very often. They bought  me some ice - we named by " Es lilin ", candies even shared some amount of money for me. I still remember when they had new cloth,invited me to try together and we used the same new cloth !! Imagine....little Balinese in Klungkung have understood live humanity. ( I would like to say thank you very much to all little friends in Sampalan klod village, klungkung for this sweet moment !!! ) 

Thank you,
