Bali News: The Dream Continues

(6/3/2002)

The contest is over and the winner announced, but we still have a backlog of excellent entries in the Bali Dream Holiday contest. Brian Tang, btang@rcn.com, from New York City sent this entry in the midst of planning his Balinese wedding.

Getting Married on Bali

"Close your eyes, hon, and picture where we will get married," I tell my fiancé. "Breathe in the musty sea breeze and hear lapping waves beckon our aerial approach."

We will welcome our guests with a Jimbaran Bay seafood barbeque, with aromatic fresh-baked lobster, fish and satay mingling with crackling babi guling. Indigenously clad in fine batik and sarong, we will all immediately feel at ease in our tranquil and intimate villa around an emerald pool of inviting serenity. The gentle hospitality of our hosts, welcoming us with garlands of sweet-scented flowers and offering us fresh fruit concoctions, will soothe our collective travel weary senses as we forget all our cares.

The next day, our guests will have the opportunity to experience the many wonders of the island. The adventurous nature-lovers will have volcanoes to climb and reefs to explore; the cultural-buffs will have many wonderful temples to discover; and our shopaholic aunts will have Ubud's exquisite local crafts to ensure that they return home with a memorable keepsake! In the meantime, our wedding party will relax and be pampered by a luxurious spa.

At sunset, we will exchange our marriage vows under a thatched bale overlooking the Indian Ocean, that mystical time when the crimson orb reunites heaven and earth. Surrounded by cherished family and friends to witness and celebrate our commitment to each other, the mood will be set by the dulcet tones of the rindik's bamboo song. As we march down the petal-covered grassy aisle together, the cool gentle wind that sways our palm-leaf arches will also lift the petals strewn by our guests like tropical snow flakes in our wake.

Candles will light our path to a wonderful rijstaffel meal, combining the best of east and west, and served with grace and ceremony in an evening we will never forget.

And where could this magical day take place, you may ask my dear?

"Why, we will marry on the island of Bali."
