Change Has Gotta Come
Putting Baliís Illegal Moneychangers Out of Business

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has called on Bank Indonesia to strictly enforce rules against illegal moneychangers in Bali who are seen as creating discontent among tourist visitors to the island.

The Governor's call to arms was issued during a visit to his office in Denpasar by the chief of the Bali and Nusa Tenggara district for Bank Indonesia, Benny Siswanto on Wednesday, October 22, 2014.
 
As reported by Metrobali.com, Benny Siswanto says only 120 registered moneychangers are licensed in Bali. However, the number of actual moneychangers carrying on business on the Island far exceeds this number.

Siswanto explained to the press that his office does not have the enforcement authority to impose sanctions on illegal moneychangers. Any enforcement measures remains the prerogative of the police.

Siswanto promised the Governor that the problem of illegal moneychangers would receive more attention in the future in order to protect the reputation of Bali tourism.

Adolescent Desires
Australian Philip Robert Grandfield Deported to Australia After Six Years in Prison on Pedophilia Conviction

News Corp Australia reports that 67-year-old Australian Philip Robert Grandfield has released from a North Bali prison after serving six of an eight year sentence for the sexual molestation of underage boys in Bali.
 
Grandfield was imprisoned in 2009 after being found guilty of sexual contact with five boys aged 16 and 17 during a six-month period in 2008.
 
Grandfield converted to Islam during his stay in prison and applied for early release that failed to receive the support of either the Australian or Indonesian governments.
 
Demonstrating good behavior during his imprisonment and served sufficient time for early release, Grandfield walked out of his Singaraja prison on Friday, October 17, 2014 and into the custody of immigration authorities who expeditiously deported him back to Melbourne, Australia.

He had sought to get a letter of guarantee from the Australian Government in order to be freed on parole but the request was denied.
 
Claiming innocence, Grand insists he was framed by unnamed enemies in North Bali who, in order to seize his property, had sent boy to his premises, claiming the young men were 18 and 19 years of age.
 
The legal age for consensual sexual relation in Indonesia is 18 years.
 
Grandfield is banned from re-entering Indonesia for at least six-months.

Living in an Age of Contagion

The State News Agency Antara reports that a Bali resident has been hospitalized and isolated at Denpasar’s Sanglah General Hospital suspected to be suffering from the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Corona Virus (MERS-CoV).
 
A 70-year-old woman, identified only by the initial “S,” was admitted to the hospital at 11:00 am on Thursday, October 23, 2014, and immediately placed in isolation.
 
The woman had returned to Bali from Saudi Arabia on October 19, 2014 after participating in a Haj pilgrimage that started on September 9. 2014.
 
The woman was suffering from a cough for four weeks prior to her hospitalization. Her condition worsened a week ago when breathing became labored.

Tests confirming a MERS-CoV infection are still indeterminate.


Harmony Inside
A Solo exhibition by I Made Wiradana, "Harmony Inside" November 20 - December 18, 2014 at Ganesha Gallery Ė Four Seasons Resort Jimbaran

Fond of flora and fauna, it is not surprising then that I Made Wiradana loves to paint the visuals of plants and animals on canvas. With a character full of humor, the involvement of animals and plants on his canvas is always done with a joyful degree of playfulness. To this admix, Wiradana applies many themes, idioms and symbolism to his art.
chairman of the SanggarDewata Indonesia (SDI), from 2000-2002, he has held successful solo exhibitions in Yogyakarta, Jakarta, and Bali and, in foreign locales such as and India. His first solo exhibition in November 1999, titled "ImajinasiPurba" (Ancient Imagination) was held at PurnaBudaya Yogyakarta and is still remembered to this day for its groundbreaking approach to art. That attracted the famously discerning attention of the media and art lovers in Yogyakarta and Magelang and surrounding regions.

Wiradana’s style of painting is unique. He transforms and deforms objects, rendering them into their primeval essence. For Wiradana, the past is inextricably intertwined with our subconscious. The past will always continue to influence every aspect of human culture, either in the sciences, personal beliefs, religion, or aesthetics. To his point of view, the pre-history has the power of the Niskala (unseen) and possesses its own certain beauty.

Wiradana is very firm in imbuing his work with the spirit of "ngayah" - creating sincerely without asking or expecting for anything in return, an attitude embraced by many traditional painters in Bali. Wiradana also incorporates other elements of Balinese tradition to his canvasses through the harmonization of the contrasting colors encountered in Bali. One example is the colors of the offering flowers in contrast with the colors on the ider-ider (decorative cloth) and Kober (flags) – each in its own way showcasing the identity of Bali.

Wiradana’s creative process and many years in explorating technique have influenced his decision to use a post-modern approach as a means to reveal his aesthetic style. His works explore everyday life, issues of peace and harmony with nature, which are highly contextual and relevant to contemporary life.

In his solo exhibition at Ganesha Gallery in 2014, he adopts the theme of "Harmony Inside."  The spiritual breath nourishes harmony for Wiradana as a Balinese artist, so that his creative expression is very closely related to nature and philosophy of the Hindu religion. The essence of the Hindu concept of Tri Hita Karana emphasizes the harmonious relationship between man and his God, humans and the natural world, and human beings with each other.

November Fuel Price Hike Increasingly Certain
Kompas.com Reports Premium Fuel Prices to Increase 46% on November 1, 2014

Kompas.com reports that it is now confirmed that the newly installed Indonesia President and Vice-President, Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla, will dramatically increase the cost of gasoline effective November 1, 2014.

Kompas quotes sources close to the new President that the cost of subsidized gasoline will increase Rp. 3,000 per liter. The unnamed source said: “This is in accordance with the original plan to increase (the price) by Rp. 3,000 per liter.”

This means that subsidized premium gasoline will increase 46.1% from Rp. 6,500 per liter (US$0.54) to Rp. 9,500 (US$0.79) per liter.

The reduction in the amount of subsidy for gasoline will represent a savings of Rp. 20 trillion (US$1.66 billion) to the state budget.

In order to offset the inflationary hardship the sudden increase in the cost of gasoline will cause to poor, the government is putting place short-term programs to assist the estimated 20 million poor families projected to be most burdened by the reduction in fuel subsidies.

While the Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla have expressed a desire to provide more generous compensation to Indonesia’s poor, efforts to do so may be obstructed by the “Red and White Coalition” headed by the disgruntled loser in the presidential election – Prabowo Subianto. The coalition controls 63% of the seats in the National House of Representatives (DPR-RI).

Whether or not prices will increase on November 1, 2014 as reported by Kompas.com remains to be seen. That there will be such a hike in the very near future to reduce the unsupportable burden placed on the State budget by fuel subsidies is now very much a forgone conclusion and a difficult job left to Joko Widodo’s by his irresolute predecessor.

Fighting Malaria in Bali
Denpasar Health Officials Undertake Educative Steps and Fogging to Prevent Upswing in Dengue Fever Cases

The Denpasar Department of Health is taking steps to try to reduce the incidents of Dengue fever in Bali’s capital through educating the public on steps to reduce nesting areas for mosquitoes and fogging by municipal health officials to destroy nesting areas.

Quoted by Metrobali.com, Dr. I.B. Gd Eka Putra of the Denpasar Health Department said on Thursday, October 23, 2014, that the educational aspect of the program to prevent dengue fever outbreaks was initially being done via meetings with village heads, sub-district heads and community health centers in all parts of Denpasar.

The goal of the education program is to persuade community leaders to regularly patrol their surroundings and eliminate standing pools of water where the infectious mosquitoes breed.
 
The health department official warned that there is traditionally an increase in the rates of dengue fever cases at the change of the year necessitating the need for vigilance and surveillance to combat possible nesting areas.

Officials say that when cases of dengue fever are identified, the public should report this to municipal officials who can undertake fogging. Observations in the field, however, indicate that little or no communication takes place between Denpasar health officials and hospital treating dengue patients that could efficiently and quickly identify areas for fogging operations.


Murder at Bali Emerald Villas in Sanur, Bali
Long-Time Bali Resident Bob Ellis Murdered in What Police Believe was Murder-for-Hire Scheme Orchestrated by His Wife, Noor Ellis

A long-time foreign resident and businessman in Bali has been brutally murdered, apparently by his Indonesian wife of two decades who orchestrated the man’s death by paying domestic servants and acquaintances to take part in the homicide.
 
Dead is Robert Kevin Ellis (60) a successful owner of companies involved in telecommunications, aviation, property and tourism accommodation who police believe was murdered on Monday, October 20, 2014 at the Bali Emerald Villa complex on Jalan Karangsari Blok C 6 Semawang-Sanur where he lived with his Indonesian wife Julaikah Noor Aini (Noor Ellis) (45).
 
Police theorize that Ellis was set upon by as many as four accomplices paid by his wife while in the kitchen of the Bali Emerald Villa where, based on wounds found to the man’s body, he was bludgeoned and has his throat slit. The body was then bundled into sleeping bag and tossed into a drainage canal in Denpasar. Initially suspecting the bag contained the carcass of a dead dog, it was only later, when a local farmer investigated more closely on Tuesday, that the grisly discovery of Ellis’ body was made.
 
When police removed the body for forensic examination at Denpasar’s Sanglah General Hospital they discovered a hand phone and quickly identified the deceased as Robert Ellis who held citizenship both in his native U.K. and Australia.
 
When police went to the Bali Emerald Villa residence and advised Julaikah Noor Aini of her husband’s murder she reportedly expressed shock and grief.
 
Police enquiries with servants quickly resulted in Noor Ellis’ incarceration as a suspect in her husband’s death for orchestrating his murder by paying at least four people to take roles in the homicide and subsequent disposal of the body. A 23-year-old man, Adrianus Ngongo (Ariel), was arrested at the East Bali Port of Padang Bai with Rp. 30 million in his possession as he prepared to sail to the next island of Lombok. Ariel is reported to be the boyfriend of a maid who purportedly quieted the couple’s Golden Retriever during the murder.
 
The couple’s two sons, David (23) and Peter (19) have returned from their studies in Perth, Western Australia upon hearing of their Father’s death.
 
Police continue to search for all the accomplices in the murder and work to complete their evidence files to hand to Denpasar prosecutors. Once all suspects are in custody the court files this will include a re-enactment of the murder scene with all suspects in attendance.
 
Preliminary comments from police in Bali suggest Noor Ellis could be charged with the premeditated murder of her husband, a crime that could carry the penalty of death before a firing squad. Noor Ellis manages a number of local businesses in Bali and is active in community service projects as a member of the Sanur Rotary Club.
 
Lawrence Bellefontaine, a Director of Bali Emerald Villas, promoted on the Internet has having professional 24-hour security, has confirmed that Ellis and his wife purchase their villa from him 10 years ago while the unit was still under construction.

Baliís Flushed Away Success
3 of 4 Baliís Lakes Now Badly Polluted; Failure to Act Threatens Baliís Supply of Drinking Water

Three of four major lakes in Bali – Lake Batur, Lake Beratan and Lake Buyun are now considered badly polluted – with the fourth major lake of the Island - Lake Tamblingan considered to be increasingly polluted.
 
The Bali Post reports that if the pollution of the lakes that form a major source of drinking water for Bali is not soon addressed, the Island's clean water supply will be critically threatened, particularly for those living in close proximity to the lakes.
 
The worst pollution levels are being recorded at volcanic Lake Batur due to the use of agricultural pesticides, domestic sewage and raw sewage dumped directly into the lake by local residents.

The chief of Conservation for Natural Resources for the Province of Bali, Ida Bagus Badraka, said: Since 2009, Lake Batur has become a freshwater lake declared a national priority for action due to the high level of pollution being recorded. In 2013, there was a reduction in the level of pollution, but the status of the lake remains ‘polluted.’”
 
Badraka said the pollution of the scenic volcanic lake is also due, in part, to livestock breeding projects and fish cultivation. Efforts have been made by the government to create jointly shared septic tanks and biogas capture projects for animal waste. He said fish feed deposited into the lake for fish cultivation projects was also  a major contributor to the lake’s pollution.
 
The conservation specialist said pollution on Lake Beratan and Lake Buyan are largely due to agricultural activities and pesticide used on the shores of the lakes. Adding to the pollution mix on Lake Beratan are tourism activities via powerboats leaking fuel into the water.
 
The provincial government plans in 2015 to recommend that Lake Beratan and Lake Buyan to be added as national priorities on the list of polluted lakes in Indonesia due to their high level of pollution.
 
Badraka told Bali Post that he hopes the provincial and regional governments would join forces to eliminate the pollution of Bali’s lakes. Noting that only Lake Tamblingan remains relatively unpolluted, a failure to act, he warned, will have dire impact on the Island’s water supply.


Donít Look Now!
Baliís Iconic Panorama at Kintamani Vanishing Behind Illegal Buildings

The Bali Post reports that illegal buildings under construction in Penelokan on the ridge of the Lake Batur ridge are slowly destroying the once panoramic views of Lake Bature and the still-active Batur volcano that greeted people visiting the area.
 
Observers warn that if action is not soon taken to stop the illegal development the view that forms a major attraction at Kintamani will be completely obliterated.
 
A local resident ,who was not prepared to have his name published, told Bali Post, “Indeed there needs to be a shared awareness among the relevant agencies in order to save this area from overbuilding.”  He laid the blame for building blocking views of Lake Batur and the Batur volcano on the reluctance of Bangli Regency officials to takestrong action against the illegal buildings and their owners.
 
The problem of illegal buildings obstructing views at Kintamani has increased in recent years and the introduction of local autonomy. Violators point to other illegal buildings and the inability of Bangli officials to take action as justification for their illegal structures.
 
Another Bangli resident, Kadek Budiarta, said that if Bangli authorities had the courage to take firm action against illegal building structures from the start of the illegal building spree, the current condition would not be as dire as it is. He added, “I know that many of the (illegal) buildings are owned by important people or, at the very least, people with connections to powerful people who are business people, politicians and bureaucrats.”

The Bali Bird Park, located in the northern outskirts of Bali’s capital of Denpasar, is targeting to finish 2014 with an average visitor count of 3,400 people per day.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the director of sales and marketing for the Park, Made Erika Sedana, said on Friday, October 24, 2014, that she was optimistic this target could be achieved due to the high level of service provided to the Bird Park’s visitors.
 
“I am optimistic that our targeted goal for visitors, both foreign and domestic, can be achieved,” said Erika at a ceremony celebrating the 19th anniversary of the Bali Bird Park.
 
In 2014, she said, the park has experienced a 40% increase in visitors when compared to 2013. Domestic holidaymakers dominate visitors to the park, like visitors to Bali as a whole.
 
The Bali Bird Park is home to 250 species with a total population of more than 1,000 birds. Erika revealed plans are underway to secure some new species of birds for the park in the near future.
 
On the occasion of its 19th anniversary the Bali Bird Park has embraced the theme of “new thinking and new possibilities” with a renewed dedication to species propagation and conservation.
 
To encourage more visitors Indonesian nationals in possession of a Bali ID card (KTP) need only pay Rp. 100,000 per adult and Rp. 50,000 per child.
 
Foreign tourists pay Rp. 300,000 for an admission ticket.

Keeping the Welcome Balinese
Deputy Governor Calls for More Balinese Signage at Airport and Other Key Locations

Bali’s Deputy-Governor I Ketut Sudikerta has asked the managers of the Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport to use Balinese letters in signage at the Island’s air gateway.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Sudikerta said, “At important places in Bali, such as the airport, I hope that Balinese arts and letters can be used.”

He said it would be best if words of welcome at Bali’s airport could be displayed in the Balinese language.

In this instance, Sudikerta suggests, “Welcome to Bali” could be replaced with “Om Swastiastu, Rahajeng Rauh ring Bali.”
 
The Deputy-Governor said the use of Balinese language would increase the Balinese identity of the airport.
 
Sudikerta told the press that he had written a letter to the Airport’s managers some six-month’s ago recommending the use of Balinese, but his letter has not dignified with a reply or a change in signage.
 
If necessary, Sudikerta said the requirement to use Balinese could be presented as a provincial regulation, such as that requiring the use of Balinese-styled ornamentation on buildings.

A Failure to Deliver
CEO of Hotel Bali Kuta Residence Facing Trial for Fraudulent Property Deal

The Director of PT Dwimas Andalan Bali (PT DAB), March Vini Handoko Putra (44) has been remanded to Kerobokan prison for 20 days while prosecutors prepare a case of fraud against the man for final presentation to the Denpasar District Court.

Putra, who is also the CEO of the Hotel Bali Kuta Residence will soon be facing a team of Bali prosecutors who are expected to charge him with fraud against Susanti Agustina and Suriyanti Fitriyani in the amount of Rp. 1 billion.

The alleged fraud is alleged to have occurred on March 29, 2012 in connection with the sale of an apartment located in the Hotel Bali Kuta Residence.

The victims claim they transferred the Rp. 1 billion in 2009 by bank transfer to the private account of March Vini Handoko Putra,

The charges stem from the failure of Handoko to finalize the final sales agreement for the subject apartment preventing the two from assuming ownership of an apartment for which they have paid.


Nusa Penida Conservation Fees to Increase
Klungkung Regency Plans to Increase Entrance Fees for Day Visitors to Nusa Penida by 1,070%

The Regent of Klungkung, Nyoman Suwitra, says a planned increase of 1,070% in the retribution charge levied on Nusa Penida visitors is needed to increase conservation patrols and general conservation efforts on the nearest island neighbor to Bali.

The proposed adjustmentin the Island Conservation Fee (KKP) would increase from Rp. 7,000 (US$0.58) to Rp. 75,000 (US$6.25) per person the amount charged to people staying at Nusa Penida or joining popular day cruise visits there,

The Regent says the funds are needed to pay for routine patrols of the island to ensure rules protecting the marine environment are enforced on marine visitors.

Suwitra defends the proposed increase on the grounds that it would represent a "one-stop" payment of retributions, eliminating repetitive requests for fees now taking place from various elements during a Nusa Penida visit.

Boat operators guests to Nusa Penida would be asked to pay the fee upon landing ashore.


More is Less
More Warnings About the Disastrous Effects of Uncontrolled Growth in Bali Accommodation Sector

The Bali chapter of the Association of Tourism Intellectuals (Ikatan Cendekiawan Pariwisata Indonesia - ICPI) is raising alarms that accommodation development in Bali is following an unclear path. This lack of clarity is reflected in the uncontrolled new growth in starred hotels and city hotels.

The chairman of ITCP-Bali, Putu Anom in Denpasar on Wednesday, October 15, 2014, said that at one time new development of starred hotels were confined to a specific areas where luxury hotels could compete with each other, but now inexpensive city hotels stand side-by-side with starred hotels and a resulting unhealthy level of price competition.

Anom continued: "I city hotels with their low prices now have hotels in elite or resort areas, surely stealing market share from higher priced starred hotels.

Anom also criticized authorities allowing city hotels to be built in village locations. Such hotels, typically built in a minimalist style, sell rooms at lower prices than existing accommodation providers operating as small boutique properties, inns and home stays, The established businesses owned by local residents, are forced to sell at low, non-viable rates in order to retain market share.

Anom wants the government to create specified zones for low-cost city hotels and separate zones for starred hotels. Moreover, the ITCP chairman wants local stakeholder organizations, such as the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI).

Separately, Ketut Ardana, the chairman of the Indonesian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (ASITA), blames the current building book in accommodation as the reasons that occupancies are declining at starred hotels in Bali. In the effort to sustain their businesses, local hotels drop their rates. The final result of this process, argues Ardana, is that Bali gets transformed as a cheap destination

Ardana, like Anom, want the government to tighten the licensing process for new hotels and look beyond the simplistic goal of increasing the tax base.

ekly performance of the ancient selonding will be held on Thursdays and Sundays at 7:00 p.m. at the Mekar Bhuana Center on Jalan Gandapura III/ No. 501X, Kertalangu, Denpasar.

The ticket price is Rp. 200,000 per person (US$16.70).

A highlight of current series of performances will be the appearance of child prodigy composer musician Gede Semara. Playing selonding since he was five and composing music since he was six years of age, Gede is the world's youngest selonding composer. Son of a Balinese mother and New Zealand father, young Gede mesmerizes audiences with the quite ease with which he approaches his musicianship.

Proceeds from the current series of selonding performances will help finance a planned tour of New Zealand in February 2015 by Mekar Bhuana. Each performance will include an introduction by ethnomusicologist Vaughan Hatch and dance instructor Putu Evie.

Performances are limited to only 40 audience members. Balinese food and beverages will be available for purchase.

The current performance schedule runs every Thursday and Sunday from November 2, 2014 until February 1, 2015.

Dry Brollies in Bali
Bali Weather Forecasters Predict Delayed Rains to Finally Fall in November

Five regencies of Bali are experiencing an acute water crisis due to the prolonged dry season affecting the Island.

Worst affected is the northernmost region of Buleleng, but with water shortages also acutely felt in the regencies Karangasem, Klungkung, Bangli and Jembrana.
 
Water tank trucks are being deployed in the worst affected areas by the Bali branch Agency for the Alleviation of Natural Disasters (BPBD).
 
Meanwhile the Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics in Bali (BKMG-Bali) for Bali has revised earlier predictions that the wet season would end in the last days of October, now estimating that the rains will only begin to fall in the month of October. The delay in “the wet” is being blamed on the position of El Nino wind patterns that are in more northerly position than anticipated.
 
BKMG says rains will start to fall in some part of Bali during the first ten days of November. Expected to be in this early November rain pattern are South Tabanan, Badung, Gianyar, North Buleleng and Central Karangasem
 
Rainfall in the northern portions of Karangasem will only occur in the last 10 days of November.
 
BKMG also says most areas of Bali will receive a normal amount of rainfall this year, albeit somewhat delayed. Those areas of Bali where rainfall is predicted to be below normal this year are Nusa Penida, Klungkung, Gianyar, Karangasem and West Jembrana.
 
BKMG predict peak rainfall in Bali will occur from early January until February 2015.
