Organized by members of BIWA in cooperation with the Bali Tennis Academy, the tournament will take place April 1-9, 2006 at the Nikko Bali Resort & Spa. Open to public, the tournament sets four categories of play: Junior, Amateur, Senior and Open.

Since then BIWA has been at the forefront of sourcing, funding and carrying out social welfare projects in Bali.

As Bali Prepares for the Official Day of Silence Some are Worried that Bali will Soon be Compelled to 'Kiss Goodbye' to the Very Special Day that Follows.
It's official. Bali will celebrate Nyepi - Bali famous "official day of silence" starting from 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 30, 2006 and ending 24 hours later on Friday, March 31st.
Nyepi literally means Quiet!- at once both a label and strict imperative enforceable under the law - the name given to the day each year when it is the religious obligation of every Balinese Hindu to dedicate an entire day to quiet introspection and spiritual cleansing before embarking on a New Year in the Balinese lunar calendar.
What's On and What's Not!
An official circular issued by Bali's Governor stipulates that during the official period of silence:
No lights may be lit
No work can be done
No travel may be undertaken
No amusements enjoyed
On a practical level, this means that Nyepi will be observed by the devout through the abstinence from food and drink, human speech, and even the lighting of fires or lamps. As a result, Bali will resemble a ghost town with all businesses and thoroughfares closed. Traditional village security - pecalang - will patrol the Island permitting the passage of only emergency vehicles and sternly rebuking neighbors who allow noise or light to escape from family compounds.
Bali's Answer to Mardi Gras
Marking the first day of the Balinese Saka calendar (1928), the day of silence is always preceded by a night of wild revelry. During the evening hours, young men from local banjars, recklessly fueled by copious quantities of arak, parade the streets carrying large ogoh-ogoh floats: huge Papier Mβchθ effigies lovingly constructed over the past month only to be consumed in flames or uncermoniously ditched on street corners as the young men scurry home to evade the day-light curfew and "quietly" nurse their horrendous hangovers.
By sunrise on March 30th all will be required to take refuge in their hotels or homes before sunrise - there to remain until the following morning. Major hotels, with the permission of the Island's government, generally permit their guests full use of their various outlets with the understanding that guests will not venture outside the property'a grounds. To ensure services to guests are not interrupted, special arrangements are made for the hotel's staff to stay overnight at their place of employment as normal traffic between their homes and place of employment is impossible on Nyepi day.
Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport is closed throughout the designated 24-hour period. Flight are allowed to transit the airport on Nyepi, but no passengers will be permitted to enter or leave the terminal area until the holy day has passed. Special exemptions, however, are made for technical and emergency landings, as well as medical evacuations.
Kiss Me Ketut?
The residents of the village Banjar Kaja in South Denpasar must be worried that current legislation now being considered by National Legislators will mean that their unique ritual tradition of med-medan for celebrating the New Year may soon become a thing of the past.
Practices with roots clouded in the distant past, the members of Banjar Kaja always gather on the village green on the day immediately following Nyepi to engage in an activity that may soon become punishable by a fine and serious jail time. On that day, young boys and girls of that community gather on the local green; boys to the left, girls to the right, gradually advancing towards each other before breaking into a charge by both sexes culminating in an exchange kisses with the opposing gender. Tradition dictates that one charge of the lips brigade is seldom enough, mandating that relentless bussing occur in an area knowm locally as the kissing fields.Where med-medan started no one is sure. Where it ends is less a mystery; many married couples trace their "first xontact" to a celebration of med-medan in years past. The proper and complete observance of the festival is mandatory for the youth of the Banjar who quickly abandon any residue of reticence in the face of stories of natural and personal disasters that have befallen those who failed to participate in the special ritual.
And, as with all special events in Bali, God's blessing is always sought first via a solemn procession to the community temple before undertaking the important task ahead. Prayers completed, the boys and girls then separate into two groups; there to pluck up their courage and pucker their lips for what follows.
Concerned parents, perhaps playing a role that will be assumed by policemen in the future, bring buckets of holy water to cool off the romantic ardor of their children accidentally overcome by the moment.
And Now for the Bad News
While spectators are generally welcome at all local cultural events in Bali, participation at med-medan is strictly limited to local lads and lasses in traditional dress.
Med-Medan traditionally takes place in the early afternoon on the day after Nyepi, this year on Friday, March 31, 2006, on Jalan Raya Sesetan in Banjar Kaja in South Denpasar.

March 15th Bali Public Hearings on Ponography Bill
Growing Opposition Movement in Bali to New Ponography Legislation Expected to Appear in Force at Wednesday's Hearings.
As reported on balidiscovery.com, [Too Sexy for My Bali] there is widespread oppositeion in Bali to sweeping legislation on ponography and morality currently under consideration in Jakarta. Measures contained within in the proposed law are seen as failing to protect the interests of minority religious and cultural groupings within Indonesian society, inimical to the overall rights of women, and potentially threatening to Bali's tourism industry.
Public Hearings Wednesday, March 15, 2006
The Provincial Parliament of Bali (DPRD) will be conducting public hearings at the Parliament Builing in Renon on Wednesday, March 15, 2006, satarting from 11:30 a.m..
The Chairman of the Provincial Parliement, IBP Wesnawa, is seeking widespread input from all groups in Bali at the proposed hearings saying, "We urge the public, community and religious leaders, NGOs and other organizations to submit their written statements on the bill during the hearing"
Wesnawa's appeal for public participation in the deliberative process came following a meeting with two representatives of the Bali's People Component (KRB), I Gusti Ngurah Harta and Ida Pedanda Gede Ketut Sebali Tianyar Arimbawa on Wednesday, March 8th, when they called on the DPRD to take a formal stance towards the proposed pornography and morality legislation.
Wesnawa, who has also invited Bali's Governor to testify at the hearing, has promised that once all opinions have been heard the DPRD will formalize the official stance of the Government and People of Bali to be sent to the House of Representatives and the President.
Fast-Growing Mandara Spa Asia Relocates its Corporate Headquarters to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Steiner Leisure Limited have announced that Mandara Spa, its premier resort spa brand, is relocating to new corporate headquarters in Kuala Lumpur. The move from Mandara Spa's birthplace in Bali to the Malaysian capital is in response to the growing demand for the Company's services as spa operators in the premium and luxury segments. A company spokesman said that Kuala Lumpur will be the gate-way to Asia and the other region for Mandara Spa.
Commenting on the move, Trent Munday, Managing Director, Mandara Spa Asia said: "Mandara Spa is now a truly global company. There is no other independent spa management company in the world with the combined global reach, resources and experience to match Mandara Spa. Moving our corporate headquarters to Kuala Lumpur will give us a strong corporate base from which we will drive the expansion of our brand."
Whilst the move was necessary to facilitate growth and was reportedly very strategic in nature, Mandara Spa Asia will still be maintaining its training, production and distribution centers in Bali in order for the Company to remain true to its original roots and its trademark Balinese traditions of spa services.
Munday added, "We will be investing over USD $100,000 into our Training Centre and Production & Distribution facilities in Bali to gear up for this expansion. Bali was the birthplace of Mandara Spa and will always remain at heart of the company as an integral part of our culture and philosophy."
Mandara Spa, founded in Bali in 1995, now operates more than 75 spas worldwide, including Bahamas, Bali, Caribbean, China, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, Hawaii, Japan, Las Vegas, Malaysia, Maldives, Mexico, Saipan, Thailand and on board cruise ships.

The company's short-term expansions include opening its spas in Sunway Lagoon, Kuala Lumpur and a flagship outlet in Kazakhstan and Oman this year.

An Exhibition of Art by Pande Gde Supada March 21 - April 14, 2006 at Ganesha Gallery.
The art of the Balinese artist Pande Gde Supada is notable for its haunting imagination.
The observer finds him or herself wrestling with the meaning of the Artist's emotionally charged figures, some hidden in the shadows and leaping forward, luminous and bright.
Supada's inspiration is found in contemplation and meditation, an interior dialogue with himself and a collective consciousness. The layered, scratchy surfaces of many of his paintings are reminiscent of ancient caves.
And, as in entering a cave, so is the experience of viewing Supanda's work. At first examination you are blinded for a moment as your eyes adjust to the low light. Then comes an uncertainty: Are the forms displayed on the walls natural formations created over the centuries, or ancient paintings - faded and covered with layers of time.
Gradually the silhouettes of animals and humans become recognizable.
At last, a special moment of understanding ignites as we find ourselves spontaneously caught in a mιnage en trois, a mysterious, deeply private three-way dialogue between the artist, his imagination and our own.
Imaginery Dialogue an exhibition by Pande Gde Supanda at Ganesha Gallery Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from March 22 through April 14, 2006.

Playing Cricket with Bali
Australian Cricket Greats on Historic Cricket Tour of Bali in April 2006.

A Strange Sport for Bali?
Cricket in Bali is not as unusual as it may sound. The island has five active clubs which play in three cricket leagues (Under 15, Under 19 and open), a girls' competition and an expanding schools program.
Bali's main oval is roughly the size of the Adelaide Oval. It has a compact grandstand, nets and a centre square with five turf pitches, tended by a groundsman.
The early April tour has the support of the International Cricket Council, The Indonesian Cricket Foundation, Cricket Bali, Cricket Australia and various State cricket associations.
"It will be a great experience for some of our younger players who are coming through our leagues to play with and against legendary Australian players," said Ian Jasper, President of Cricket Bali. Adding, "the tour will do wonders to help promote cricket in Bali and other parts of Indonesia."

Fastest Growing Middle East Carrier Committed to Growing Tourism and Trade to Indonesia.
Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, will commence non-stop service to Indonesia from its base in Abu Dhabi on March 16, 2006.
Flying four times a week, EY 423 will depart from Abu Dhabi International Airport at 01:45 hours, arriving in Jakarta at 13.30 hours; on the return, EY 424 will take off from Jakarta at 15.20 hours to land in Abu Dhabi at 20.45 hours. Flying time from Jakarta to Bali is only 1.5 hours with numerous easy connections available on a number of carriers operating between the two destinations.
"Etihad's decision to fly non-stop to Jakarta is welcome news to both our business and holiday guests as well as to our cargo customers, because Indonesia is a popular destination and has a thriving business community," said Ian Ferguson-Brown, Head of Brand Management & Communications, Etihad Airways.The announcement of the new Indonesian route is the latest in a series of new destinations announced by Etihad in recent weeks, including Manchester, Manila, Muscat, Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar.
The new service to Jakarta, operated initially with one of the airline's new Airbus A330-200 aircraft, will further boost the cargo capacity by adding around 200 tons of cargo space per month, in each direction.
Similarly, Etihad Holidays the tour operating arm of the Airline, has indicated that the new Etihad service to Indonesia will present enormous opportunities for guests flying between Abu Dhabi and Asia. In addition to Jakarta, guests can now fly on to Bali and a number of other Indonesian destinations.

February, Quite Contrary
Bali by the Numbers: February Arrival Figures Suggest that Bali's Recovery May be In the Doldrums.
Total Direct foreign arrivals to Bali for February 2006 hit 73,430 a figure down -27.03% from the total visitors in February just one year before (100,638). The latest figures failed to demonstrate forwad movement on the slow struggle back to recovery for Bali's tourism industry, turning in a somewhat worse performance than January 2006 when bookings were down -21.78% month-on-month with one year before. Mitigating partially what could appear to February's setback is the fact that Januarys arrivals were bolstered in part by Chinese New Year visitors. Tourism observers will be closely watching March arrival figures to see what clue, if any, they provide to the length and severity of the current business drought.
August-February Arrivals: A Five Year Perspective
As shown on balidiscovery.com, the pattern of pick-up following the latest Bali bombing (October 2005) largely mirrors patterns following the October 2002 terrorist attacks. While overall trends for August-February continue to lag substantially behind the record arrivals last year, February arrivals are still 8.83% ahead of February 2003 arrivals, a month also affected by post-bomb trauma.
Performance from Bali's Top Four Overseas Markets
Despite the current downturn in business, Bali's four main markets remain the same - namely, Japan, Australia, Taiwan and South Korea. Nonetheless, the downturn in business from these top producing countries has been profound, shifting from the former cumulative 57% market share to a 49.65% market share for February 2006.
Japan - Bali's largest inbound market of Japan is showing no signs of recovery, with the only 15,353 Japanese visitors in February representing one the worst February's in recent memory for that market. Economic uncertainty at home, lingering security concerns and Japanese trepidation over bird flu are all combining to stall a comeback in Japanese visitors.
Australia - Waiting for marketing initiatives aimed at reviving the Australian market to have effect, the Australians continued to stay away in droves in February, down -64.48% from the same month just one year before. The performance from the Australian marketplace is apace with February of 3 years ago when business was down 65% following the 2002 bombing incident.
The struggle back to healthy Australian arrival numbers will likely be more arduous this time round, unaided by the Air Paradise which commenced service in February 2002.
Taiwan - One ray of modest optimism is provided by the Taiwanese market which is demonstrating strong resilience this time round. While February arrivals (9,793) were down -6.10% from one year before, this is a markedly better performance than February 2003 when Taiwanese arrivals lagged -23.14% following the first Bali bombing the previous October.
South Korea - Perhaps mirroring Japanese fears over Avian influenza, South Korean arrivals for February totaled 5,463 - a figure down -36.65% from one year before and substantially worse that post-first-bomb February 2003 which was down only -23.17% from the previous year.
All Eyes on March
All eyes now shift to the arrival figures for March 2006 to see what indication they will provide on the future fortunes of Bali tourism.
