The Nusa Dua Beach Resort and Spa played host to the SKAL Annual Charity Ball on Saturday, September 1. Adopting a Treasure Island theme, the Resort hosted over 250 members of the local travel industry and friends to cocktails on the beach followed by a lavish dinner in an open courtyard. Proceeds from the event are contributed to local orphanges in Bali.

Bali Update was at the Ball to record the outlandish costumes and unique entertainment on offer for a night of "pretend" piracy. To share the fun, visit the link below for a series of pictures which we welcome attendees and others to download and share with their friends and family.

Bali Update files a lyrical report on the event, while offering profound apologies to the late, Sir Noel Coward:

I'VE BEEN TO A MARVELOUS PARTY

I've been to a marvellous party,

With Danny, Parmita and Al,

Held for SKAL and its members

It's an annual affair,

That was held in salt Air

Which was swell.

Poor John wore a grass skirt from Fiji,

Complained that the blades were making him sore,

So a caring young lady advanced to the fore,

Prepared to place bandages,if poor John bled more,

Then lifted his skirt to attend his what's for.

I couldn't have liked it more.



I've been to a marvelous party,

We didn't start dinner till nine.

Young Mary arrived wearing coconut shells,

Where normally you'd expect her lapels,

Causing John, freshly bandaged, to forget his next line.

Then Ben, a lawyer, came dressed as a sailor,

Which required no change in behavior.

His hand was replaced by a sharp looking hook,

A claw or a clause from an old statute book?

And his wife kept her distance whenever he shook.

I couldn't have liked it more.



I've been to a marvelous party,

The fun was immense, I confess,

Oversized Ms. Josette’s

Dress shrunk as she sweat,

Cried, "Next time I’ll have to buy permanent press."

Three men wore stuffed birds on their shoulders,

Each claiming their fowl had just swore.

And Bill, who was there with a ring in his ear

Sat next to a man who kept calling him "dear,"

Insisting the wine had made him feel "queer."

I couldn't have liked it more.



I've been to a marvellous party,

We played the most wonderful games.

All done in the name of charity

And also a bit of hillarity,

And sipped strange concoctions

While almost forgetting our names.

We talked about style and good manners

And, a lady-like Joanne, then took to the floor

Saying "A" is a matter of your P's and your Q's,

And "B," if your anonymous you've nothing to lose,

Then jumped up on a table to reveal her tatoos

Oh, I couldn't have liked it more.
