Terminal Illness
Bali Deputy Governor Unhappy with Poor Management of Bali’s VIP Air Terminal

The State News Agency Antara reports that Bali’s deputy governor Ketut Sudikerta is demanding that the management of the VIP Terminal at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport be tightened with permission strictly limited to the governor’s office to use the special terminal.
 
“Those allowed the use the VIP terminal is already set forth in regulations issued by the Governor. (Under those rules) permission (to use the terminal) must be first obtained from the Governor of Bali. The VIP terminal cannot be used by just anyone,” explained Sudikerta at a coordination meeting with PT Angkasa Pura who manages Bali’s airport, on Monday, May 11, 2015.
 
Sudikerta said better control over the operation of the VIP terminal is needed to safeguard the welfare of State visitors. He also expressed the wish for better management of the terminal itself, including its furniture, the condition of the terminal and the equipment in place.
 
Bali’s deputy governor said an additional waiting room was needed for the accompanying entourage of visiting VIPs and also for their drivers. Extra waiting rooms would remove the current disorder of drivers and VIP associates wandering around the exterior of the VIP terminal.
 
Separately, the deputy governor remarked that there remained a lack of Balinese design and architectural finishes at Bali’s airport. He suggested banners be installed welcoming visitors with the Balinese welcome: “Om Swastiastu, Rahajeng Rauh Ring Bali."
 
Sudikerta also discussed with airport officials issues regarding congestion at the entrance to the Bali airport. To resolve this problem he is supporting plans to build an underpass on Jalan Ngurah Rai Bypass to remove the bottlenecks at the roundabout located near the eastern end of the runway.


Narcs that Bark
The Bali Police Seek Volunteer Pets to Join the Fight on Narcotics

Kompas.com reports that the Bali Police Command is planning to provide training for suitably qualified privately owned pets to assist police in curbing narcotic-related crimes.
 
Apparently, only people owning canines with a highly developed sense of smell need apply.
 
“This is still in a conceptual phase and we, of course, hope this will received a positive response from the people, particularly among dog fanciers in Bali. In Bali there are many people who keep pet dogs and we are looking for animals with a strong sense of smell to assist in narcotics detention,” said Bali’s Chief of Police, inspector General Ronny Franky Sompie on Monday, May 11, 2015.
 
According to General Ronny, the plan must overcome a number of obstacles such as finding an expert able to assess dogs offered up as candidates to help police fight the narcotics trade and the cost of training and accommodation for the dogs selected.
 
Ronny was quick to underline that any dog selected would remain the property of its owner with the police only assisting in the training of the animal that would be made available to help police track drugs.
 
“Clearly there are specific breeds of dogs suitable for this work. This will be determined by the expert. The cost of the care of the dog is an obstacle at the present time, but we are hoping that the dog selected will remain the property of local citizens and continued to be cared for by them. The citizens will be expected to assist the police in allowing their dogs to be used in tracking narcotics. If someone wants to donate their dogs, that can be considered,” the General explained.
 
The Bali police command only has four tracking dogs at the moment, with the remaining dogs dedicated to sentry duties. Ronny said his idea has been put forth to create a joint effort with the community in the battle against narcotics.


What Will We do with These Drunken Sailors?
Fremantle to Bali Yacht Race Departs Western Australia

The Fremantle-Bali Yacht Race 2015 that got underway on Saturday morning, May 16, 2015, in Western Australia is hoped to bring Australian and Indonesia closer together.
 
Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Indonesia’s Minister of Tourism Arief Yahya, in written remarks read by the Director General of Tourism and the Creative Economy (sic), Esthy Eko Astuti, said prior to the race: “This event will become an important agenda item in the yachting calendar of Southeast Asia. I hope the participants in this race will continue their journey not only to Bali but beyond to other islands in Eastern Indonesia.”
 
Similar sentiments were sounded by the Consul-General for Indonesia in Western Australia, Ade Padma Sarwono, who, in his remarks before the racers preparing to depart Fremantle, said, “I am convinced that that our relation ship (Indonesia and Australia) will become increasingly closer and the number of participants this year is even more than in the previous years.”
 
Continuing, Sarwono added: “I also wish to invite the sailing crews to go further in Indonesia. To Sumatra, Sulawesi, Papua and Java. The Government of Western Australia now has a sister state and sister province in Indonesia. Why not also sail from Fremantle to Banyuwangi (East Java)?”
 
“Please don’t forget that in addition to sailing, try to study the Indonesian language,” the Consul-General jibed.
 
The race held biennially is sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism, the Tourism Ministry of Western Australia, Garuda Indonesia and the Consul-General of Indonesia in Perth.
 
The Minister of Tourism for West Australia, Dr. Kim Hames, said, “We have a strong connection with Indonesia and this event will enhance the connection between the two countries.” Adding, “I personally have plans to follow the next race in two year’s time after I am on pension.”
 
Many in Indonesia are looking forward somewhat cynically to Minister Hames’ retirement and plans to go sailing, still stinging from Dr. Hames’ misinformed and aggressively negative remarks made about Bali made in 2013. (See the linked article below.)

Singing sensation Andre Henhanusa chimed in: “I’m honored to be presented with the opportunity to work with Hard Rock Hotel Bali, Yayasan Solemen Indonesia and such a revered person, Tamara.

Opting for Prison Over a Firing Squad
16.5 Years Prison for Russian Girl Caught Smuggling Drugs into Bali

The verdict is in the drug trial of Magnaeva Alexandra, the 27-year-old Russian women convicted of smuggling 2.1 kilograms of methamphetamines via Bali’s airport in December 2014.

Should the Russian woman fail to pay the fine, 3 months will be handed to her sentence and consideration for sentence reductions and parole during the course of her imprisonment could be delayed.

Prosecutors told the panel of judges that the Russian woman was an international drug dealer who brought drugs in her luggage on a flight from Hong Kong.

Reportedly frightened that the more severe punishment of death before a firing squad could be imposed on appeal, the woman’s lawyer told the court that his client has accepted the sentence of the court.

First Line of Zoning Enforcement
People of Bali Urged to Take Lead Role in Ensuring Zoning Rules and Regulations Enforced

The provincial government of Bali has called on the public to take an active role reporting violations of zoning laws.

The head of the Provincial Development and Planning Agency (Bappeda), Putu Astawa, speaking at the Governor's monthly open forum, said, “with a population of 4.2 million people, it is not impossible that violations of the zoning law take place."

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Astawa continued, warning of the impact of the Island’s fast expanding population: “All this will have implications on meeting demands for food, clean water and housing. Against the background of such a large population it is possible that violations of zoning rules will occur.”

Astawa said that the need to accommodate development and investment in Bali had been contemplated in the drafting of Provincial Law No. 16 of 2009 on Zoning for the Province of Bali (RTRWP 2009).
 
“In this provincial law is embodied the philosophy of maintaining balance and harmony between man and God, among the community of Man, and between man and the natural environment. This concept of ‘Tri Hita Karana’ demands that all investment bring benefit to the surrounding community and must be in conformance with the law,” Astawa explained.
 
Via the RTRWP 2009 the Province of Bali seeks to work with regencies and municipal governments to support agriculture and tourism – businesses based on culture and nature – preserving ancient rice fields in their traditional form and role in Balinese society.


Something Rotten in the Denpasar Palace
Disgraced King of Denpasar Released from Prison After Serving Time for Murdering his Step Brother

After being imprisoned for the murder of his stepbrother in a palace brawl, Cokorda Pemecutan XI (the 11th Raja of the Pemecutan Palace) was released from Kerobokan prison on Monday, May 11, 2015.

Arriving back at the Denpasar Palace and in keeping with royal tradition, Anak Agung Ngurah Manik Parasara (Cokorda Pemecutan XI) underwent rituals in accordance with Hindu Bali beliefs.

Cokorda Pemecutan XI and members of his family, including his children and wife, took seats in the Gedong Agung Puri Pemecutan before the extended family of the Palace to receive counsel and advice on how best to govern the extended royal household.

The transition from prison to palace was carried out under heavy police guard and was joined by friends and family of the disgraced Raja.

Supervising the release was senior Bali police officer Anak Agung Rai Sudarma who told Beritabali.com that he hoped Cokorda would be able to become a useful member of the community and would follow all the rules and protocols of the Palace. Sudarma, who is both a police officer and of royal blood, called on Cokorda and his immediate family to embrace the extended palace family.
 
Anak Agung Rai Sudarma also told Cokorda Pemecutan XI to never again foment conflict or revenge in connection with his one-year imprisonment.
 
Continuing, the ranking police office said: “I also hope that there will be no more conflict, especially conflict among the Royal family…Remember you are a king and you cannot arbitrarily take decisions that do not conform with palace traditions.”
 
In response, the disgraced Raja and former member of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR-RI) expressed his thanks for the advice he had been rendered and the honor bestowed on him by the Royal household.
 
Concluding, the Raja said: “For all that I have done – I, my wife and children ask forgiveness. Clearly this is a history that need not be repeated and must be remembered by future generations of the Pemecutan Palace. Again, I offer my apologies and pledge I will always seek the support and input of the Royal Household.”
 
Anak Agung Ngurah Manik Parasara (Cokorda Pemecutan XI) caused the death of a stepbrother in a fight on the Palace ground in 2003 following a family dispute.  The Denpasar Court imposed a penalty of one-year imprisonmen in connection with the death, the execution thereof delayed while the Raja appealed the case and tried unsuccessfully to have the ruling set aside.

Juvenile High Jinks on Bali’s Roads
High School Graduates Blowing Off Steam on Bali Roads Encounter the Law

Hundreds of new graduates from high schools across Bali’s capital of Denpasar joining noisy celebratory convoys crisscrossing the city had to deal with police check points set up to control them on Friday, May 15, 2015.

Graduating high school students across Indonesia typically mark the end of their high school careers and the announcement of national academic test results in joyful motorcycle convoys, traveling without helmets and pausing along the way to autograph each other’s school uniforms.

As reported by beritadewata.com, in anticipation of the convoys, members of the Denpasar police were deployed on main roads such as Renon, Jalan Sudirman, Jalan Gatot Subroto and Jalan Mahendradata.

At the checkpoints students found to be violating traffic rules were given tickets and their vehicle documents and driver’s licenses confiscated for eventual return at a coming court appearance.

At least one student, Adi Purnama, was stopped by police at several different checkpoints for repeated traffic violations. Police allowed the scofflaw to continue his antics, claiming they could only issue him with one tickets for the same violation on a single day.

Police said most violations by the new graduates were for a failure to use helmets or an inability to show a motorcycle registration. All those ticketed must appear before a special court on May 27, 2015.

According to press reports, many of the students reportedly panicked when ticketed by police and hurriedly called their parents on cell phones from the police checkpoints.


World’s Oldest Profession in an Ecommerce Age
Bali Police Say they are Preparing to Move Against On-Line Prostitution.

Within the framework of a national crackdown targeting on-line prostitution, Liputan6.com reports that there is at least one website originating from Bali promoting sex-for-pay with “HIV-free” women between the age of 21 and 26 years.

Pictures of a number women with short biographies and their sexual specialties are presented on the website.

The organizers of the website claim they are providing a service to tourists visiting Bali. Rates for sexual services are varied with the highest price shown of Rp. 4 million (US$300) for a 15-hour session with an escort.

The site also offers holiday packages to Singapore complete with a female escort.

Hotel bookings are recommended at 5-star hotels where sex services can be ordered on line or via SMS.

Police said the Liputan6.com was useful to their efforts to crackdown on on-line sex services. A senior Denpasar police offices, Anak Agung Made Sudana, said police were aware of the website selling sex with young women and were investigating such sites for enforcement action.

Part of a worldwide phenomenon, police may have face insurmountable problems in trying to prevent on-line sex offers made on the Internet by major players such as Craigslist.

Police believe the German was suffering from deep depression at the time of his death.


Ducking Traffic Congestion at Bali’s Airport
Bali Committed to Creating Highway Underpass at Entrance to Ngurah Rai Airport

Bisnis.com reports that the provincial government of Bali plans to construct an underpass at the Ngurah Rai Statue roundabout near the eastern end of Airport’s runway as a means of alleviating traffic congestion for those traveling to and from the air gateway.

Bali’s deputy-governor Ketut Sudikerta said traffic bottlenecks are a common occurrence at the traffic circle where the Bali Mandara toll road and Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai converge.

Sudikerta said the underpass would do much to relive the traffic problem but would not commit on when the plan would be undertaken.

The head of the Transportation and Information Service for Bali, Ketut Artika, admitted severe traffic congestion at the airport intersection. He also admitted that the proposed underpass would largely solve the problem with cars traveling from Jimbaran to Denpasar no longer mixing with cars exiting the toll way for the airport.

A feasibility study and engineering plan are now being prepared as the next step in the realization of the airport underpass.


Broken Crystal
Bali Lawmakers want Authorities to Demolish Hotel Crystal on the Bay Project

DenPost reports that the failure of Badung building and zoning officials to control the construction of the Hotel Crystal Bali on the Bay project is prompting calls from the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung) for the 5-star hotel project to be demolished.

The vice-chairman of the DPRD-Badung, Ketut Suiasa, has called for the Badung Enforcement Agency (Satpol PP) to tear the hotel down.

Suiasa said on Monday, May 11, 2015, it was now time for the Satpol PP to take concrete steps and move against the project that has ignored local laws and regulations regarding building height and set back distance from protect mangrove forests. “I have urged the Satpol PP Badung as the agency responsible for enforcing local laws and regulations to demolish the building (Hotel Crystal) that violates height regulations,” he said.

Suiasa, a South Kuta politician, has also asked that no toleration be extended to investors who try to bypass and corrupt the workings of local law enforcement agencies. “The bearing and dignity of regional agencies must be safeguarded and steps be taken to jointly defend the consistency of their administration,” he said.

In response, the head of the Satpol PP for Badung regency, Ketut Martha, said his office has sent warning letters to the owners of the Hotel Crystal Bali on the Bay demanding they report to the Satpol PP office.
 
When Martha was asked why his office did not simply demolish the offending structure, the said his office preferred the persuasive approach. “We cannot recklessly act. There are procedures that must be followed. If the owner does not respond to our requests to modify their projects to conform with direction given by the government, we will take strong action,” he said.

The Hotel Crystal Bali on the Bay has been the object of much coverage in the media for failure to obtain required permits, building height violations and alleged infringements on protected mangrove area.
 
Complaints that the building exceeded the 15-meter maximum height rule by 8 meters were answered by the developer adding an additional structure on the building’s rooftop.

Invidious Investor of the North
Hotel Project Involved in Illegal Reclamation at Gerokgak, North Bali

Tribune-bali.com reports from Singaraja, North Bali that a hotel development in the village of Pejarakan at Gerokgak in the regency of Buleleng intrudes some 200 meters into the surrounding bay – in what appears to be a blatant violation of set back rules that ban any construction within 100 meters of the high-water mark.
 
The website shows a picture of the project (displayed) and the offending structures taken on Saturday, May 16, 2015.
 
Two concrete structures protrude far from the shore, located about 15-meters apart from each other. Workers at the project were seen busily filling the space between the two concrete fingers with soil in the construction what looks to become a pier.

A local from Pejarakan village, Iboy, said the construction, that for all intents is an illegal reclamation project, has been in progress for the past month.
 
The villager said that the 2-hectare plot behind the illegal reclamation would be used for a hotel project. A local villager recently sold the shore side property to an investor.
 
The village expressed his amazement that the project developer was taking up shoreline areas and adjoining bottomlands that are public domain under Indonesian law.


Escalating Troubles
French and Spanish Tourists Missing on Mount Rinjani

The State News Agency Antara report that National Search and Rescue Teams (Basarnas) have been dispatched to the Mount Rinjani area of Lombok Island to search for two French and Spanish tourists missing since at least Thursday, May 14, 2015.

The tourists – Patric Lehman and a woman identified only as Joan, reportedly embarked on a climb up Mount Rinjani without first obtaining the required permit from park authorities or employing the services of a local guide.

Basarnas officials were alerted by the families of the missing climbers who had no specific information on when the two started their trek or which approach they were employing in climbing the volcano.
 
Putu Cakra of Basarnas said:  "They might not even have a guide. If they have one, most likely they would not lose their way."
 
Efforts at mounting a rescue search are complicated by no information on the route used by the two.
 
Two teams of ten men have been deployed by Basarnas. One team is searching the Sembalun track and the other the Senaru track.


Garuda and LOT to Link Warsaw and Jakarta
Poland and Indonesia Establish Bilateral Framework for Air Cooperation

The CEO of Garuda Indonesia, Arif Wibowo, has met with his counterpart at the Polish Airline LOT, Sebastian Mokosz, in Warsaw to hammer out an agreement to establish an air corridor between Warsaw and Jakarta.
 
According to the State News Agency Antara, the agreement to work to establish air connections were announced following a visit to Poland by the Indonesian Trade Minister.
 
The first phase of the bilateral air cooperation will see LOT and Garuda Indonesia undertake a code-share agreement.

Arif Wibowo of Garuda said that the Indonesian airline currently operates to only two European cities – Amsterdam and London. The airline has plans to open more European ports of call deemed financially viable.
 
“Based on feasibility studies, Poland looks to be a promising destination. Because of that, Garuda is prepared to do a code share with LOT,” said Wibowo.
 
Poland also has the potential of becoming a strategic air hub for connections to East and Central Europe, together with Nordic and Scandinavian destinations.
 
LOT CEO said flights between Warsaw and Jakarta promise a good return for both carriers. LOT is involved in plans to increase the size of their fleet and commence flight services to Asia.
 
LOT recently reported positive financial results after seven straight years of losses. In 2014 LOT reported a profit of US$26 million, surpassing profit projections by 40%.


Things Get Knotty for Naughty Noor
Prosecutors Demand 15 Years in Prison for Murderous Wife of Bali Expat Bob Ellis

Noor Aini Ellis, on trial for the murdering her English-Australian husband Robert Ellis (60), heard Bali prosecutors ask the court to impose a 15-year sentence on Tuesday, May 12, 2015.

The Public Prosecutor told the panel of judges that Noor Ellis had confessed to and been proven to have planned a premeditated murder of her husband by enlisting the paid assistance of five household staff.

Prosecutors could have requested the more severe sentence of life in prison or death before a firing squad, with both sentences an option for the panel of judges in deciding a final sentence.

5 others are on trial separately for having abetted Noor Eliis in the murder that too place on October 19, 2014 at the Emerald Villas on Jalan Karang Sari in Sanur, Bali.

Metrobali.com reports that Noor Ellis had told the courts that her husband neglected her, failed to provide her with sufficient money and was guilty of philandering with other women.

Noor Ellis reportedly paid her staff Rp. 150 million (US$11,500) to assist in the murder and drove the car carrying her husband’s body that was subsequently tossed into a drainage ditch some distance from their Sanur home.

Separate news reports in Bali say that Noor Ellis has told the court that she has converted from Islam to Hinduism. Islamic law prevents a wife from claiming any inheritance from the estate of a husband in which she is implicated as having murdered.

Superb Indian Cuisine by a Master Chef
World’s Leading Michelin-Starred Indian Chef in One-Day Only Appearance at Alila Villas Soori in Tabanan, West Bali on Saturday, June 13, 2015

Chef Alfred Prasad, one of a select group of Michelin-starred chefs hailing from India where he is deemed to be a culinary ambassador, will visit the Alila Villas Soori in West Bali on Saturday, June 13, 2015.

While in Bali, Chef Prasad will presents what is billed to be a complete sensory experience that marries authentic Indian flavors with his signature modern, creative flair.

Born in Wardha, Central India, Chef Alfred Prasad lived all over the sub-continent during his formative years, gaining exposure to the immense diversity of the Indian cuisine. This exposure, together with his natural artistic inclination, planted the seed for what has become a stellar career performed on the global culinary stage.

After graduating from Chennai’s Institute of Hotel Management in 1993, Prasad was handpicked to undergo advanced training at ITC Maurya, New Delhi. In 1996, he assumed the helm at the kitchens of the legendary Dakshin restaurant, ITC Park Sheraton in Chennai.

Later he moved to London and joined Tamarind of Mayfair in 2001 as Sous Chef, rising to the position of Executive Chef within only a year. Tamarind of Mayfair, the flagship restaurant of the Tamarind Collection, became the first fine dining Indian restaurant in Europe to receive a Michelin star, and earned Prasad the distinction of being the youngest Indian Michelin Starred Chef at just 29 years of age.

Chef Prasad remained an integral part of the Tamarind Collection for almost 14 years, where, as director cuisine and executive chef, he was the creative energy behind the inventive menus and distinctive brand identity of its four London and Los Angeles-based restaurants. He is lauded for changing the face of traditional Indian cuisine, putting a mouthwatering modern spin on centuries-old dishes, from the rich cuisine of the North to the seafood typical of the South, while, at the same time, preserving a delicate balance between creativity and authenticity.

Chef Prasad is also deeply passionate about food wastage and poverty, and is an ambassador to charities committed to operating a sustainable, far-reaching development programs to help in these areas.

In a special gastronomical event set for Saturday, June 13, 2015 in Bali and presented against an Indian ocean backdrop at Alila Villas Soori, Chef Prasad will excite diners with a three-course Luncheon and a Dinner Tasting Menu, featuring a repertoire of imaginative and intoxicating dishes.

Hidden Motives
The Continuing Saga of US$5 Million Wasted on an X-ray Machine for the Port of Gilimanuk in West Bali that Has Never Fully Functioned

An x-ray machine costing billions of rupiahs installed several years ago at Bali’s western approach of the Port of Gilimanuk has never been fully operational and continues to sit idle outside an inspection post.

The unit was urgently imported in 2012 at a cost of more than US$5 million.

Purchased at an enormous sum without any additional allocation for training skilled operators and routine maintenance, the x-ray machine capable of inspecting large vehicles has become a source of acute embarrassment to police authorities and something of a “hot potato” for officials uncomfortable to delve deeper into the hurried purchase of an extremely expensive piece of equipment that has never truly fulfilled its intended role.

When DenPost visited the port on Sunday, May 3, 2015 the troubled x-ray machine remained covered with a dusty tarpaulin – a testimony to poor planning and purchasing practice gone berserk.

A police official at the port said: “I don’t know what the problem is. In fact, one of our officers has been trained in the machine’s operation. Maybe it because of the high level of radiation or the sensitivity of the machine to dust that has made it inoperable. A promised technician from England has not materialized.”

Officials at the Port have expressed a wish that the Province would build a special building for the x-ray that will protect both the machinery and the operators.

Careful Planning in an International Marketplace
Garuda Takes Steps to Reduce the Impact of Weakening Rupiah and High Fuel Costs

During Q1 of 2015 the Indonesian Economy was under pressure on several fronts. The Indonesian Rupiah continued to depreciate breaking through the Rp. 13,000 rate for US$1. Meanwhile, the cost of fuel in Indonesia became increasingly expensive.

As reported by Metrotvnews.com, this condition had a significant effect of the bottom line of Indonesian airlines, including Garuda. The largest expense of the Indonesian National flag carrier is fuel and the many imported items needed to operate the airline are priced in US Dollars.

The CEO of Garuda, Arif Wibowo, said on Friday, May 15, 2015: “This has a big effect on costs, because some of the biggest costs in US Dollars are the costs of airplane leases, aircraft maintenance, aviation fuel – most of which is imported, and other items.”

He said that based on projection and business assumptions, his airline managed to minimize the impact of these factors. Garuda had foreseen the decline of the Rupiah and budgeted an exchange rate of Rp. 13,000 to the dollar and set the cost of aviation fuel at US$0.70 cents per liter.
 
“While the cost may still be below this, we are anticipating for the future. We are looking at the development of the national economy and how it will be influenced by the deprecation of the Rupiah is being anticipated at this time,” he added.
 
Garuda took further economic precautions through investing in hedge funds and cross currency trades worth Rp. 2 trillion over three years, later increasing hedging by 30% - steps that more or less guaranteed the financial situation of the airline through 2015.
 
“By undertaking cross currency trades and increasing hedging from 25% to 30%, our plan in 2015 will secure the situation until year’s end. This is how we have anticipated the movement of the Rupiah and he cost of fuel,” said Arif.


Acting with an Abundance of Caution
Suspicious Package Discovered Near Australian Consul’s Home Confirmed Harmless by Bali Police

On Saturday, May 16, 2015, an entire platoon of Bali police explosives experts converged on a suspicious package left on the roadside some 100 meters from the residence of the Australian Consul General on Jalan Merta Sari in Sanur, Denpasar.

Galed Krisjayanta
 
When an earthquake devastated Galed Krisjayanta’s home on the south coast of Java Island, Indonesia, in 2006, he didn’t respond as most 10-year-olds might have. While many children would understandably stand by as their parents managed survival and recovery efforts, Krisjayanta took the first steps toward his future pursuits of music performance and humanitarian work.

In the face of the devastation, Krisjayanta, supported by one of Indonesia’s largest Christian non-governmental organizations, recorded a music album titled Alam Sisa, which translates to “our nature and what’s left of it” that encouraged resilience, survival and a refusal to give up because a brighter future awaits those who work for it. The album’s proceeds were directed for charity in the recovery process.

“That was the first time I realized music could have a life-changing impact in society,” said Krisjayanta.

Seven years later, Krisjayanta arrived at Hesston College where he met Anthony Brown – an instructor, mentor and friend with whom he shares many commonalities. Brown, a Hesston College social science instructor, artist in residence and internationally recognized baritone, uses his music to spread messages of peace and social justice across the world through his organization the Peacing It Together Foundation.

The two men have developed a close bond during Krisjayanta’s time at Hesston.

To celebrate Krisjayanta’s graduation from Hesston, the two men have embarked on an Indonesian musical tour with accompanist and Hesston music faculty member Ken Rodgers.

The new graduate is extremely excited to come home to Indonesia with his friend and mentor Anthony Brown. Saying: “The tour will give us the opportunity to deliver words of peace and humanity to the people of Indonesia, as well as introduce audiences to classical and African-American music that is not as familiar to them.”

During his time at Hesston, the young Indonesian has become well known on campus and in the community for his outstanding vocal talent. He is a member of the premier vocal ensemble, Bel Canto Singers, as well as a solo performer at formal and informal events across campus and in the community. He has won honors for his singing skills at various competitions and performed a lead role in the just-completed Hesston production of “Little Women.”

Ken Rodgers

Ken Rodgers a renowned keyboardist is joining the Indonesian tour as musical director and accompanist. Rodgers, the conductor of the Hesston College Chorale, has given recitals in Germany and throughout the United States.

The Indonesian Tour

“I never really believed I would be a music performance major, but Hesston College and the city of Hesston have been my stage to start my singing career in the United States,” said Krisjayanta. “I realize that God gave me the talent to sing for a reason – to spread good music and to serve people through my singing.”

Krisjayanta recalls the idea for collaboration with Brown in Indonesia starting as early as his first year at Hesston. Following a Social Welfare class session, Brown engaged Krisjayanta in his goals for vocal performance and proposed the idea of working together.

“I told Tony about my passion for singing and helping people, and he said, ‘Then we are on the same page, Galed,’” recalled Krisjayanta. “Tony started as just my teacher, and now he is my singing partner and brother.”

With the help of Krisjayanta’s father, Sigit, a humanitarian social worker who works in the areas of public health, social work and disaster management, the tour plans were set into motion.

Prior to their Bali performance, Brown and Krisjayanta will perform in several venues across Indonesia during the course of a 2-week long Indonesian tour.

“We hope this venture will bring people together across divides and help them find common ground,” said Brown. “In keeping with the mission of Peacing It Together Foundation, we will use our music in Indonesia as a catalyst for peace and social justice.”

Funds raised from the performance will be donated to PUSPADI Bali – a foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with physical disabilities in Bali and Eastern Indonesia.

Invitations are available in exchange for a donation of Rp. 100,000 for both the Master Class on Friday and the Concert on Saturday. Both events start at 4:00 pm.

Seating is limited and advance booking is recommended by emailing Cherrell Picton  or by telephoning +62-(0)8121 895 4762 or +62-(0)361 744 4620.

Protecting the World’s Endangered Species
Bali Celebrates Endangered Species Day by Educating Children on the World’s Vanishing Species

In keeping with the Bali Safari & Marine Park’s unwavering commitment to conservation, the award-winning Safari Park once again paid homage to “Endangered Species Day” on May 15, 2015. Visitors to the park on that date received information on the world’s endangered animal species and were encouraged to purchase attractive collectable stamps showing threatened species. All funds collected from the sale of the commemorative stamps will be donated to organizations doing important work in endangered species preservation.

On the special day dedicated to combating species extinction, the Bali Safari and Marine Park will organized a number of supporting activities.  Members of the Park’s educational team and expert animal keepers shared their knowledge, expertise and personal experience working with the more than 400 animals representing 60 species found at the Park in a series of “rangers talks.”  Young students from three schools located in Lebih, Serongga and Medahan - areas surrounding the Park, competed in a drawing competition with the theme “World Endangered Species Day.” The range of activities arranged by the Park and the active participation of the local community are targeted to increase awareness and concern for Indonesia’s endangered species.

The Bali Safari and Marine Park educational team also presented talks on wild animal threatened with extinction. These presentation were attended by children from the Darma Jati I Orphanage in whom the Park hopes to instill a love and concern for protected animal species.

Commenting on “Endangered Species Day,” William Santoso, general manager of the Bali Safari and Marine Park said: “As an organization dedicated to animal conservation, environmental protection and the sustainability of the entire animal kingdom forms part of our commitment to persuade the public to take part in effective programs in support of these ends. It must be understood that the greatest threat to the animal kingdom is mankind. With genuine concern and participation by the public the world’s protected and endangered specials will truly vanish from the face of the earth.”

As a leading center for species conservation, the Bali Safari and Marine Park has long-standing programs in breeding and the preservation of protected animals. At the Park, such activities include the breeding of the Bali Starling (Bali mynah) and the Sumatran elephant.

“Endangered Species Day” is celebrated around the world each year on the third Friday of May in order to enhance opportunities for people from every walk of life to better understand and participate in programs for the protection and preservation of endangered species.

A highlight of World Endangered Species Day at the Bali Safari & Marine Park was a visit by former Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, and Madame Yudhoyono, together with their family

The Yudhoyono family enjoyed the spectacular Bali Agung Show presented at the Bali Theater after which a special visit was made on “Inapec” - a two-year-old Sumatran elephant named by the then First Lady during a visit to the Park two years ago.

Where You Gonna Run To?
BII Maybank Bali International Marathon a Sell-Out Just Three Weeks After Registration Opens

Some 110 days before the running of the BII Maybank Bali International Marathon - set to take place on Sunday, August 30, 2015, organizers have closed registration announcing that all of the 4,300 participant slots have been taken up.

The demand for slots in the race was extremely intense with registrations pouring in at an unprecedented rate, so much so that entries for the Full-Marathon and Half-Marathon categories were “sold out” just two weeks after registration opened. An additional allotment of 300 Full-Marathon slots disappeared just two hours after being entered onto the system.

The organizers inform that with all Full-Marathon, Half-Marathon and 10-kilometer category slots now taken, registration for the August 30th event is closed. Because of this unprecedented demand, walk in registrations for the 2015 BII Maybank Bali International Marathon will not be accepted,

Spectators are, of course, welcome to watch the races that begin and end at the Bali Safari and Marines Park and wine through picturesque traditional Balinese villages in the Gianyar regency of Bali.

Organizers, well pleased with the unprecedented demand for the race, have nonetheless apologized for not being able to accommodate the many thousands of more runners who would like to join the race.

The maximum number of 4,300 participants is based on the estimated carrying capacity of the course and the desire of race organizers to present a quality race focused on the safety and enjoyment of all runners.
