Senggigi is the main tourist strip of the
Indonesian island of Lombok, stretched out along the several kilometers
of the beachfront, just to the north of the capital Mataram. The site of
a building frenzy in the late 1990s when Lombok was hyped
to be the next Bali, the communal violence of 2000 and the 2002 Bali
bombing dealt Senggigi a severe blow, with tourist numbers declining
precipitously and many construction projects halted.
what kind of beach in your place guys? :)

The National Emblem of Indonesia is called
Garuda Pancasila. The main part of Indonesian national emblem is the
Garuda with a heraldic shield on its chest and a scroll gripped by its
legs. The shield's five emblems represent Pancasila, the
principles of Indonesia's national philosophy. The Garuda claws
gripping a white ribbon scroll inscribed with the national motto
Bhinneka Tunggal Ika written in black text, which can be loosely
translated as "Unity in Diversity". Garuda Pancasila was designed by
Sultan Hamid II from Pontianak, supervised by Sukarno, and was adopted
as the national emblem on 11 February 1950.

Then spit. Normally the color of saliva is red, so that the color dental
of people who "menyirih" regularly is red.
