This book describes the essence of the people of Indonesia. The author wrote about his experiences in the different islands of Indonesia, how he met people, and about the hospitality of the people, sharing with him whatever they had. To me, being from Indonesia myself, this described the essence of the people of Indonesia, without the influence of "outsiders" through the media, trying to be like the "modern" world. I gave a 4 for overall, only because some of the recipes are lacking some "indigenous" ingredients, so some of the recipes are not completely the way they should be. I would recommend this book highly, especially for those with connections to Indonesia, e.g. have an Indonesian spouse, or have an Indonesian parent, or Indonesian friends. If only more people could be like this author, there will be great understanding and good will among people, no prejudices, no preconceptions, and peace among the different nations. I also like his style of writing, descriptive and easy to read.

If you're looking for a very big vase that makes a statement then this is it. Well, depends where you are locating it; if it's on top of a table then you will get that aggressive statement piece, but if you put it on the floor then it's not gonna be so aggressive but it will still look nice. I have a very large foyer room and needed a vase for the table that's in between my Two chairs. At first my husband and I were scared bc it looked too big but after a while we liked it a lot. So I recommend it but only if you're looking for Something very aggressive. My mom always jokes that we won the World Cup because it looks like it.

We haven't installed it yet, but it was a compromise purchase: I wanted a real copper mailbox, while my husband wanted an ugly industrial strength mailbox to withstand the harsh winters (and snow plowers who frequently damage our mailboxes). This was the best of both worlds. Color isn't as nice as the real copper, but it's better than most other ones I looked at, and it's most definitely a heavy, sturdy metal one. Used a discount promotion and I couldn't beat the price anywhere else. Great find!

It took me a long time looking for something that I felt reflected and I want my daughter to think of herself and to wear like a badge of honor. She is the bravest person I know.

Completely fell apart after little use. The locking mechanism came off and then the bracelet completely unraveled.

I nearly always enjoy stories about World War II and how people survived their daily hardships. This was a clever way to present the tale of the Guernsey islanders and how books gave them a focus and hope during impossible times. At first, the letters were a bit confusing but after a short while, I came to enjoy the method and felt a lot of empathy for the characters. A very good read.

These earrings are lovely! Perfect size and weight for my ear. I feel so pretty when I wear them. They are good quality and made nicely. Plus match a lot of clothes in my closet. I would recommend them.

I was looking for a necklace without any metal parts, because the person I was buying this for is allergic to all metals except gold. This seemed perfect in that respect. It is a very pretty necklace. I especially like the color of the Amethyst, in this case it's not too dark and delicate. I was only disappointed in size of the necklace, it was too tight around my neck. I liked it enough to keep it, because I plan to add an extension, but I wish they would make it a little bigger, so it fits more comfortably.

I bought this necklace to wear with a white gown when we go to Hawaii to celebrate our anniversary next month. Seeing it was made of seashells and clear quartz (and pearls too), I thought it would go with the theme of an island vacation. However, the quartz is grayish in color instead of clear, so it looks a little muddy/dirty. The seashells and mini pearls save the look - they're very nicely colored in off-whites, pearlescent and white tones. Thought of returning, but haven't found anything similar yet, so I may just go with it.

I was a little disappointed when I received this necklace. Not crazy about the cord the gems are strung on. It feels like dental floss and feels sticky when wearing it. The stones are nice but the clasp is ugly. Too long for my liking. The stones start farther down from the clasp then in the photo. Don't recommend it but keeping it.

These are lovely earrings and nicely crafted. However, they are far more lilliputian in size than represented. I probably won't wear them very often or give them as a gift to a smaller woman.

This is the perfect piece I was looking for to go with my low cut wedding dress for an island wedding!

An adult could wear these for fun, may be best for a small ear. Bought for an 11-year-old, they look fabulous, she loves them. Great sparkle and silver.

And let's not forget all those beautiful beaches that make this tropical paradise one of the world's favorite tourist destinations. If you can't get to the islands this year, use your imagination and have a Hawaiian summer party.
