   From DEPARTURES (the free American Express magazine that believes everybody flies First Class and takes $15,000 cruises, and whose slogan is "LIFE AT ITS BEST"), July/Aug. 2001, pg. 28, col. 1:

JAKARTA...Dharmawangsa also has a spa offering traditional Javanese treatments, such as the _mandi lulur_, a milk-bath scrub.  Afterwards, the attendant will hose you off with an ultra-massaging "Scotch shower."

(Neither is in OED.  If the Scotch shower involves Madonna, I might consider it--ed.)


   There's the word "rima" my ICELANDIC TRAVELLER somewhere, but I forgot the cite.
   The SLANGUR book with the three authors (1982) had this English bibliography:
