BALI UPDATE #1047 - 26 September 2016

IN THIS UPDATE


Prepare for Congestion
Traffic Alert: Expect Traffic Jams on Wednesday, September 28, 2016, Due to Threat of Online Transport Operators Mass Protests

Thousands of conventional and local taxi drivers in Bali are threatening to take to the streets in protest and demand that the Provincial Government of Bali evict online transportation providers such as Grab Taxi and Uber in compliance with a Ministerial Decree No. 32/2016 that takes effect October 1, 2016.

According to Beritabali.com, the plan to stage a massive street demonstration in Bali was announced by 124 representatives of local transportation groups and conventional taxi operators during a combined meeting among local transport operators.

The chairman of the “Bali Alliance of Freelance Drivers (Alstar-FB)” I Ketut Witra, said : “We will demand a solution bridging the reality on the ground and the formal decision of the government. Because the reality is that the online transport operaters have not bothered to obtain the necessary permits or opened an office in Bali, as required under the law. We are therefore now asking the government to evict Gran, Uber and GoCar (from Bali).”

Witra threatened that all the members of the “Alstar-FB, Transport Workers” and supporters from traditional villages across Bali have agreed to put thousands of protestors onto the streets of Bali on Wednesday morning, September 28, 2016. The peaceful street protests are scheduled to start at 9:00 am with thousands threatening to march under the banner of “Discussion, Communication and not Arrogance.” The peaceful march will start at the Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) and head towards the Governor’s office, pass the State Prosecutors’ offices and end at the Bali Provincial Transportation Office.

The organizers of the march say they hope the Government will take action and acknowledge the actual situation in Bali. Organizers have underlined that the protests will be peaceful and seek only that online transport operators be thrown out of Bali.

Protestors say they support a decree (PM No. 32) issued by Bali’s Governor and Transportation Service that ordered the halting of all operations by Grab, Uber and GoCar in Bali. Those joining the protest also support a letters sent by Bali’s Governor to the Information Commission (Kominfo RI) to block online applications got Grab, Uber and Go Car in Bali.

The organizers of the protests are also seeking the removal of banners, billboards and roadside advertising promoting online transportation services in Bali. Citing the fact that Grab, Uber and GoCar have failed to follow Regional Investment rules that require the opening a licensed branch office in Bali, protestors want all business activities by the online transport operators to stop.

A representative of the Jimbaran Transport Group, I Made Ari Wangsa, told the press that his group captures and blocks 4-5 Uber and Grab cars in their areas every day. Calling the online transport operators unlicensed parasites, Wangsa says his group will also join protests to close down the competition from online transport operators in Bali.

On the most basic level, the protestors claim the online operators are ruining the market by offering fares far below the official rates set by transport operators or show on taximeters.


A Family of Rhinos in Bali
Celebrating World Rhino Day with a Very Special Group of Children at Bali Safari & Marine Park

The very special annual celebration of World Rhino Day at the Bali Safari & Marine Park was made all that more special on Thursday, September 22, 2016, through the participation of a group of extraordinary boys and girls from the Extraordinary School in Nusa Dua, Bali (Sekolah Luar Biasa Nusa Dua).

Another “special child” attending this year’s celebration at the 40-hectare nature park was “Pembe” – an African White Rhino born at the Bali Safari and Marine Park in November 2015.

While the children from SLB Nusa Dua are afflicted with various disabilities, including deafness or muteness, this in no way detracted from the absolute joy and excitement generated for both the children and their hosts during the day-long visit to the Park. Climbing aboard air-conditioned and secure vehicles, the group of children joined the Safari Journey for a sojourn through three separate “open” habitats that are home to the animals of Africa, Indonesia, and India. The memorable day continued as the kids attended a number of educational attractions - including those starring elephants and big cats; joined the Park’s Educational Team in creating handicrafts with a World Rhino Day theme; and climbed aboard the amusement park rides waiting at the FunZone.

Santoso, General Manager of the Bali Safari & Marine Park, commenting on the visit by SLB Nusa Dua on World Rhino Day said: “Like the other days at the Park dedicated to the world’s wildlife, World Rhino Day does not pale in its importance. This day reminds all of us of the critical role played by the public in protecting and conserving this rare and endangered animal. This year’s celebration was super-charged through the participation of the children from SLB Nusa Dua. The children from this school represent a small group within Balinese society who are sometimes overlooked. We hope the Park’s small contribution of inviting these children for a day of education and fun supplements the hard work and dedication of their teachers to create young adults of outstanding quality, ready to protect and preserve the environment.”

Bali Safari & Marine Park is home to the African White Rhino couple, “Mr. and Mrs. Nelson.” Nelson is 19 years old, while his “wife” Hima is 27. The loving couple became proud parents after the rare birth in captivity of their daughter, “Pembe” in November 2015.

There are only 5 remaining species of rhinoceros in existence, 2 of which are found in Indonesia: the Javan Rhino (Rhinoceros sondaicus) and Sumatran Rhino (Dicherorinus sumatrensis). Both of these species are listed as critically endangered species of the “Red List” of The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN).

The remaining population of Javan Rhino living in the wild is estimated at 50 animals at the Ujung Kulon National Park in Banten, West Java. Because of their very limited number and limited range, the Javan Rhino is considered to be at particular risk extinction to illness and natural disaster. Meanwhile, the Sumatran Rhino wild population is put at only 200 animals, living at the Gunung Leuser National Park (Aceh), South Bukit Barisan (Lampung) and Way Kambas (Lampung).


Did Franky Commit Hanky-Panky?
Head of Narcotics Division at Bali Police Suspended and Under Arrest for Suspicion of Misuse of Funds and Extorting Drug Suspects

The professional career of the former Director of the Narcotics Division of the Bali Police, Franky Haryadi Parapat, has suffered a major setback with his suspension from active duty on Thursday, September 21, 2016.

RadarBali.com and Beritabali.com in Bali report that senior officers within the National Police Force decided Frankly could no longer fill his official responsibilities given mounting evidence of misuse of official funds and allegations of blackmail and extortion of suspects in narcotics cases handled in Bali under his command.

Inspector General Sugeng Priyanto, head of the Bali Provincial Police Command, confirmed the suspension of the highly educated Franky Haryadi Parapat on September 23, 2016.

General Sugeng told the press that the suspension was needed to allow the continuing internal investigations involving Franky to move forward in an unimpeded manner.

The job as head of Bali’s Narcotic Division has been temporarily filled by the chief of the Bali police legal division, Police Commission I Gusti Budhi Harryarsana.

General Sugeng refused to comment on many legal problems confronting Franky, say he prefered to leave the matter to the disposition of the Police Internal Affairs Division (Paminal Polri).

The police took Franky Haryadi Parapat into custody on Monday, September 19, 2106, in connection with allegations of the misuse of police funds. At the time of his arrest, police seized Rp. 50 million found in Franky’s possession.

Following his arrest, national news media broke the news that Franky was also being questioned in connection with allegations of blackmail and extrotion in 7 separate drug cases. Reports say that in each of the 7 cases, suspects found with less than 0.5 grams of methamphetamines were asked to pay bribes of Rp. 100 million each. One of the suspects, a Dutch national, claims he was asked to give a new Fortuner SUV to the police to avoid prosecution.

Police Commissioner Franky Haryadi Parapat had headed the narcotics division in the Bali Police for only 6 months prior to his suspension.


Denpasar in a Jam
WAZE Declares Denpasar, Bali Traffic Among the World’s Worst

Denpasar, Bali has received the dubious distinction of being placed among Waze’s list of the worst places to drive.

The popular online driving application reports that the Capital of Bali, together with Bandung (West Java), Jakarta and Surabaya, were the four cities in Indonesia ranked as the worst driving destinations on the globe. Moreover, among Indonesian cities, Bali was ranked the very worst for driving in the Waze survey.

In making a determination of “drivability,” Waze measured the frequency of traffic jams, the quality of the traffic infrastructure, driver safety, and the ease of supporting services such as parking and gas stations. Also included in the Waze survey was the availability of public transport, the cost of fuel and the level of satisfaction among the online service users when driving in the subject destination.

The Waze survey compared rating collected from their users in 38 countries and 235 cities in determining the worst cities for driving.

In the 186 cities in the final ranking the best to the worst, Jakarta was #178 with an overall rating of 3.37 satisfaction level. Surabaya ranked #181 at 3.14, Bandung ranked #182 at 3.0, and Denpasar (Bali) #183 at 2.89.

Therefore, it's official: Denpasar, Bali’s traffic conditions are among the world’s worst.


Averting an Explosive Ending?
30 Tons of Explosive Ammonium Nitrate Seized from Boat Sailing from Malaysia to East Bali

A national “Operation Walacea” enforcement team working in cooperation with members of the Customs and Excise Department has intercepted a ship carrying 30 tons of Ammonium nitrate in Karangasem, Bali.

Beritabali.com reports that the ammonium nitrate was on board the KM Kamal Indah, an Indonesian ship traveling from Malaysia and originally destined for the port of Padang Bai on Bali’s eastern shore.

The ship was captained by Udin (38) from Bone in South Sulawesi.

The KM Alam Indah was seized on Tuesday, September 20, 2016, following a lead received by Custom’s officials that a load of explosive materials was being shipped from Malaysia to Sulawesi. The report came at a time when the Custom’s office was involved in “Operation Walacea” – a nationwide campaign to safeguard Indonesia’s shorelines.

Customs officials had been tracking the small ship with its crew of five since it entered Indonesia waters near Batam and began evading efforts evade arrest by diverting from its original destination of Sulawesi and turned course in the direction of Madura.

Custom officials managed to again find the elusive ship off the shores of Bali where it was boarded and taken into custody. Once on board, officials found 30 tons of Ammonium nitrate – a compound that can be used as a fertilizer or in the manufacture of high explosives often used by fishermen in Indonesia to illicitly increase their haul of fish or by terrorists.

Police and Customs officials are now interrogating the crew and tracing the intended recipient of the chemical compound.

Ammonium nitrate is widely used for agricultural purposes, but can be easily turned to explosive purposes when combined with small quantities of fuel oil. The compound has been used in a number of terrorist attacks around the world. In Indonesia, Ammonium nitrate is also used by traditional fishermen in Bali who use it to “bomb” coral reeds to increase their catches of fishes.

Following the successful recent hosting of the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon and the International Hash House Harriers (Interhash 2016), Denpasar will soon serve as host for a Custom Cycling Series Race that will take place in the Island’s Capital with participants from Indonesia and Malaysia.

Organizers of the event met with Denpasar’s Mayor I.B. Rai Dharmawijaya to outline the event that will take place November 25-27, 2016.

Quoted by Beritabali.com, Mayor Mantra said: “We strongly support this event not only as a cycling event but also as a means to promote tourism to the participants from Malaysia and Indonesia under the banner of ‘Tour Denpasar.’”

The Mayor issued a call to the Transportation Service and Municipal Tourism Service to coordinate with the organizers to ensure a smooth running and successful event.

The Mayor added: “This is not the first time Denpasar has been chosen as the location for a race, either as an exhibition or for sports. Recently Denpasar was host to the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon (HBIT) and the International Hash House Harriers.”

The November 25-27, 2016 event will follow a course involving the Renon area of Denpasar and along Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai. A member of the organizing committee, Muhamad Ircham, confirmed that the racers will follow a 6.8-kilometer course that will start in front of the Lotte Mart and finish on Pantai Sindhu in Sanur.

Feeling for a Motherless Child
Moved by News Reports of a Motherless Child, Bali Governor Reaches Out to Help the Baby and its Single-Father

NusaBali reports that Bali’s Governor Made Mangku Pastika was deeply moved by reports in the local press of a physical laborer from Eastern Indonesia facing enormous bills of Rp. 135 million incurred at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital when his wife died in the process of giving birth to a baby daughter.

After reading the man’s plight, Governor Pastika, traveling only with a driver and a personal assistant, visited the simple home of Romanus Tenesi (25) and gave the man a “piggy bank” filled with enough money to provide several months of baby formula for his new-born daughter.

Tenesi, who works as a laborer in the construction trade, hails from the North Central Timor Regency of the East Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia.

His wife, Katarina Lalian (24), died at Bali’s main hospital due to complications from hypertension during the birth of her daughter.

The Governor visited the still-grieving single-father at his rented room in Ungasan, South Bali, to give a personal donation of money and explore what could be done by his office to further ease the plight of the man and his daughter. Faced with hospital debts of Rp. 135 million, the Governor heard how the new father took a Sarbagita Bus back to his rented room holding his newborn daughter in his arms. “I don’t care if he has a Bali ID card (KTP-Bali) or not. If a leader can’t feel concern for the difficulties such as these encountered by people – that would be unbelievable. I only became aware of this case when I read this in NusaBali while having breakfast this morning,” said Pastika while pointing teary-eyed to the subject newspaper article.

Admitting he was deeply moved by Romanus’ situation, Pastika continued: “I am sure there are probably more like Romanus. This is one of the benefits of the media. If there were no media (coverage), how would we know of the plight of the poor? Therefore is it not appropriate for me to pay a visit on Romanus?”

While traveling to visit Romanus and his new daughter, Pastika ordered his adjutant to telephone the head of the Head of the Civil Service for Bali (Badan Kepegawaian Daerah), I Ketut Rochineng. In that telephone call, Pastika asked Rochineng to urge provincial civil servants to consider donating Rp. 10,000 from each civil servant to help Romanus. Saying over the phone: “Yah, maybe RP. 10,000, Pak Tut (Rochineng). Later, I will help again with the shortfall.”

When the governor arrived at the small rented room of Romanus, he found the man sitting on his bed cradling his one-month-old infant daughter

Pastika handed the man a "piggy bank" containing a sum of money and was allowed to cradle in his arms Elia Katarina, named in honor of her dead mother. Speaking to the man, Pastika said: “This piggy bank does not contain so much money, perhaps enough to buy formula for three months for tour daughter. You must be of strong heart.”

After seeking discounts from the hospital available to the impoverished, the final bill for his wife’s hospital stay was reduced to Rp. 135 million comprised of Rp. 24 million for the care of the infant and Rp. 111 million for the care of his now deceased wife. The hospital has agreed to allow the laborer to pay the hospital Rp. 200,000 per month in order to settle his still sizeable debt to the Hospital.


Feeling Ill? Call the ‘Boogie Man’
Bali Airport Provides Mini-Ambulance to Reduce Response Time in Case of a Medical Emergency

Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport now has a new “boogie” (golf buggy) fitted out to serve as a roving ambulance operated by the Airport Health Office.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the new “mini-ambulance” was unveiled by PT Angkasa Pura I at Bali’s sole air gatewey. In presenting the “boogie” to the Port Health Office on Friday, September 23, 2016, Yanus Suprayogi, the general manager of Angkasa Pura at the Bali Airport, reiterated Angkasa Pura’s desire to support efforts to improve the delivery of health services at the airport.

Suprayogi said the mini-ambulance was needed at the airport in order to serve the more than 50,000 domestic and international passengers using traveling through the airport every day.

Meant to provide a fast response when emergency care is needed, the “boogie” is equipped with a siren, a stretcher and a wheel chair. The vehicle also carries first aid supplies and equipment.

The base for the ambulance will be the health center located in the domestic air terminal.

The ambulance when dispatched on an emergency call will be driven by a doctor and a nurse.


In a Spanish Mood
Spanish-based Indonesian Pianist Ananda Sukarlan to Speak and Debut New Compositions at Ubud Writers and Readers Festival

Sukarlan will perform compositions based on poems by two renowned Spanish men-of-letter - Miguel Cervantes and Fedrico Garcia Lorca. This year will mark the 400th anniversary of Cervantes death and the 80th anniversary of the death of Lorca.

In his Bali performance, Ananda will be joined by one of Indonesia's youngest and most talented sopranos, Mariska Setiawan. Ananda first “discovered” "Mariska Setiawan via a music competition held in 2011, after which she continued her voice studies in Berlin and Salzburg. Mariska Setiawan will also play a starring role in an opera by Ananda Sukarlan set to debut in 2017.

Born in Indonesia, Ananda Sukarlan has lived for the past two decades in Spain from where he maintains a busy schedule of concerts and recitals across the Continent. Commissioned by the Spanish Embassy in Jakarta, the two musical works to be premiered by Sukarlan at the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival seek to wed culture and country. In addition to works composed by Sukarlan honoring Cervantes and Lorca, the Ubud performance will also present other compositions by the Indonesian composer inspired by the poems of Adimas Immanuel and Hasan Asphani -the latter of whom was greatly influenced by the poetry of Garcia Lorca.

The concerts in conjunction with the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF 2016) will be held on October 28, 2016 at 6:00 pm at Taman Baca, Jalan Raya Sangginan. One day earlier, Ananda will participate in a seminar at the same location at 3:45 pm discussing the language of Cervantes (“La Lengua de Cervantes”) together with the famous Mexican writer Juan Pablo Villalobos. Ananda hopes to reveal the connections shared between Indonesian and Spanish literature, and the connection both school of literature share with the world of music.

UWRF 2016 will open on October 26, 2016 with an impressive list of writers from Indonesia and around the world.

More Capacity Between Bali & Lombok?
Garuda Eyes Adding Seat Capacity Between Bali and Lombok

Garuda Indonesia is considering placing larger aircraft on its Bali to Lombok runs in order to accommodate growing passenger demand between the two destinations.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Dasep M. Suanda, manager for Garuda in West Nusa Tenggara, on Saturday, September 24, 2016, said, “If it is indeed possible, we will replace the ATR aircraft with a capacity of 70 passengers with larger plans that can carry up to 200 passengers.”

The Garuda manager said that from an operational and economic standpoint, it is better to increase seat capacity than to add new flight frequencies. This is particularly the case at airports such as Bali where new flight slots are in high demand.

Dasep explained that Garuda Indonesia flies between Lombok and Bali three times a day using ATR aircraft with 70 seats and Boeing 737 NG with 162 seats.

Garuda has achieved an average occupancy of 72% over the period January – August 2016.

Adding a cautionary note, Dasep added: “Adding more seats is still only a plan. We must first examine the demand. If the demand is strong, we will increase. If demand is low, why add seats?”

The deputy-governor of West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), H Muhammad Amin, has voice his desire for the national flag carrier to support tourism by adding new destination and new domestic air routes in his province. Amin bemoaned the fact that Citilink has recently ceased flying from Bandung to Lombok, and for this reason, his hope is for new flight services to be commenced to NTB.


Bali’s Struggles with LGBT Travel Continues
Some Elements in Bali Take Strong Umbrage at Reports of Gay Pre-Wedding Photos Taken in Bali

Bali is once again in the throes of struggling with whether or not it wishes to be a gay-friendly destination or banish any trace of the large and very lucrative LGBT travel market from its shores.

Following major uproars that resulted when news surfaced of several ceremonial gay weddings being staged in Bali, another controversy over gay-friendly travel has now resurfaced with the posting of gay pre-wedding photos reportedly taken in Bali and posted on social media.

Formal and legalized wedding ceremonies have never been possible in Bali as Indonesia does not acknowledge the legalty of same-sex unions.

As reported by Metrobali.com, a Duasudut Photography, a company operating in Bali, briefly uploaded pictures on social media accounts operated by Duasudut reportedly showed two young men, wearing dress jackets, in pre-wedding photos taken at Tegalalang, Gianyar, Bali and at the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Monument. The photos bore the title “Precious Moment Ryan & Alex”

Shortly after being uploaded on Instagram, a man identified as Komang Fredy, associated with Duasudut Photography, confirmed that the couple photographed were from Vietnam.

ing of the photos on social media brought a quick reaction from the former Regent of Gianyar and current chairman of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali), Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace), who said he was shocked and upset that the gay pre-wedding photos could take place in Bali.

“I regret that an event such as this can take place in a public area. Actually, the Event Organizer (EO), could have been more selective. The problem we confront is that (when) the EO comes from overseas, making it difficult to control,” said Cok Ace when contacted by telephone on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

The PHRI chairman said the tourism in Bali should always be focused on promoting “cultural tourism.”

While it is unclear if an EO was involved in the subject photographs, the company making the photos appears to be Bali-owned.

“So, Bali must refuse whenever there are factors that are in opposition to cultural values and tradition that we embrace,” Cok Ace said. At the same time, he said the matter at hand remained a very private one, adding: “This is very sensitive and perhaps would not have surfaced in the public if the photos were not take in a public area.”

In contradiction to Coke Ace's comments, however, those objecting to the purported same-sex pre-wedding photos were not present at the photo session, but from those who objected to their appearance on social media.

Cok Ace he would be very disappointed to learn if those involved in the photo session were Balinese, or if the photos were done without the needed legal permits by a foreign EO that would see the PHRI chairman hand the matter over to the proper legal authorities to handle.

A Lack of Chinese Characters
Bali Legislator Wants Punishment Imposed on Chinese Scuba Divers Who Deface Coral Reefs

A member of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), Ngakan Made Samurda, has told Beritabali.com of his disappointment with the destruction of coral reefs in Bali believed to have been committed by Chinese tourists.

Samudra has called on dive operators in Bali to ensure that tourists do not destroy the reefs that surround the Island.

“I ask that the regional government, in this instance the Tourism Service, remind diving operators to not allow their clients to damage or vandalize the reef by carving their names and slogan on fragile coral heads in the ways reported in social media in Bali,” said Samudra.

Pointing to pictures on social media showing Chinese characters carved into reefs off Bali’s shores, the Legislator says the graffiti carved on coral clearly violates environmental regulations by harming the flora and fauna of the surrounding seas.

Ngakan Made Samurda continued: “The dive guides must remind all their clients before diving into the seas (of the need to protect the environment). If we discover that dive tour participants are defacing the coral reef they must be punished to the full extent allowed by the law.”

2,500 Volunteers Join Coastal Clean Up of Bali Beached Organized by Bali Hotel Association

A record of more than 2,500 volunteers joined forces on behalf of the natural environment on Saturday, September 10, 2016 scouring Bali’s beaches for trash during the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) covering a 31-kilometer stretch of coast line.

In addition to collecting trash along the coasts of Bali, participants also separated the various kinds of garbage collected from plastic bags, containers, cutlery, cans, cigarettes and household waste, abandoned shoes to fishing debris with a total count of 75,894 waste items.

An annual event, this year’s clean-up attracted even more volunteers who donated their time. In all, 483 bags of trash were collected weighing being collected 2205 kilograms.

Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Clean Up program began in 1986 and has grown to become the world’s largest volunteer effort dedicated to improving health of the world’s oceans. Each year, during the third week of September, Every third week September, millions of ‘green warriors’ from around the globe help to clear trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers and oceans.

Why the Chicken Crossed the Ring
Chicken in Cock Flight Sends Balinese Owner to Intensive Care with a Cut Artery

Nengah Buda, a 50-year-old man from the village of Abuan, Kintamani in the regency of Bangli, was rushed to Denpasar’s General Hospital for the intensive treatment of a serious leg wound inflicted from the sharp spur worne a fighting cock.

RadarBali.com says the accident occurred on Sunday, September 18, 2016 at around 7:30 am in Payangan, Gianyar where Nengah Buda was attending a temple ceremony at Pura Hyang Api with his cousin, Nengah Suinten (45), that included, as part of the ritual, cock fighting (Tanuh Rau – sabung Ayam/tajen).

Nengah Buda had brought his favorite fighting cock to the event in order to challenge its fighting skills with other contestants. His cousin, Nengah Suiten, managed Buda’s fighting cock in a match that ended in only two minutes, with Buda’s and Suiten’s bird winning the match.

The two men, who work at sand miners, were reveling in their victory as they scrambled to retrieve their bird and remove its dangerously sharp fighting spurs. When Suiten lifted the bird off the ground, the bird launched into a new attack inflicting a deep wound on the upper leg of Buda that severed an artery, putting the man’s life instantly in peril.

Buda was rushed to nearby maternity hospital where the man was immediately referred to Bali’s main hospital in Denpasar where he underwent an emergency operation to repair his severed artery.

Singaporean Arrested Trying to Smuggle Drugs Through Bali’s Postal System

A Singaporean Tourist, identified only by the initials MF (32), was arrested at the Main Post Office in Renon, Denpasar, Bali on Saturday, September 10, 2016.

The man was arrested as he took delivery of a package sent from The Netherlands containing methamphetamines.

The arrest was made after Customs officials detected a suspicious package on August 28, 2016, wrapped in plastic that was later determined to contain 110.2 grams of methamphetamines wrapped in plastic and concealed in a wax candle.

On September 9, 2016, another packet arrived from The Netherlands containing a further 30.3 grams of methamphetamines also concealed in plastic and wax candles.

The Singaporean was arrested when he came to the Post Office to fetch both packages.

Custom’s officials initial curiosity was aroused by the fact that someone pay the high cost of mailing relatively inexpensive candles from Holland to Indonesia, when candles are readily available locally at a low price. A subsequent x-ray of the candle showed the items contained a substance other than candle wax.

Police laid in wait until the Singaporean came to the post office to collect his illicit packages.

The Singaporean recipient of the drugs reportedly works as a freelance DJ.

The maximum penalty for smuggling the subject quantity of narcotics into Indonesia is life imprisonment.


What’s New in Ubud?
Renewed Alaya Resort Ubud and Manisan Restaurant Now Open for Business

On Friday, September 23, 2016, a gala grand opening celebration was held for the Alaya Resort Ubud's new wing and exciting new restaurant - Manisan.

The new wing features 40 additional guest rooms, 5 suites, a gym, boardroom and an additional swimming pool. There is also a 350-year-old wooden joglo that has been repurposed as a wedding pavilion or venue for events.

a Resort Ubud’s new collection of guest rooms and suites boasts thoughtfully designed interiors. Bespoke furnishings and personal touches throughout reflect meticulous attention to detail and a penchant for Indonesian elegance.

Manisan – Bali Newest Dining Destination

hin the new wing is the resort’s highly awaited restaurant, Manisan – now open for business. Under the influence of celebrated Indonesian chef and culinary ambassador William Wongso, Manisan is a culinary theatre that showcases "koki masak." This is a traditional form of local food preparation involving spontaneous cooking surprises honouring the diverse and authentic flavours of the Indonesian archipelago.

“The creation of a balanced menu that will bring to the table an all-new dining experience requires the expertise of a connoisseur whose knowledge of Indonesian cuisine is second to none. We are most fortunate to have William Wongso on board to steer Manisan in the right direction,” said Jimmy Gunawan, CEO of the AIM Hospitality Group that manages the Alaya Properties. “With an eclectic mix of mainstream food traditions from places such as Minangkabau and Bandung, not to mention specialities native to cities like Pontianak and Ambon, we will ensure that Manisan’s menu embraces the food culture within our nation.”

san sits in the middle of a productive rice field adjacent to the resort with space to comfortably seat up to 128 diners. It is housed within a reclaimed joglo (a traditional Javanese wooden home) that was sourced from Central Java and reassembled in Ubud. Expertly refurbished, the building now melds age-old architecture with modern features suitable to a world-class restaurant.

Prior to his recent untimely passing, Made Wijaya, an Australian-born authority on Balinese culture, tropical gardens and island-inspired aesthetics, took the lead in fashioning the restaurant’s design. The resulting overall look has been styled with classic table settings, hand-painted ceramic floor tiles and selected artworks to balance the splendour of the joglo’s elaborately carved ceiling. Manisan is Made Wijaya’s final project and it has been finished to exacting standards in a fitting tribute to his creative spirit.

In order to protect and preserve the delicate balance of serenity and intimacy within the property, Perth-based architectural firm Grounds Kent, supervised the construction of the new wing. The Perth Company went to great lengths to ensure that the re-launched Alaya Resort Ubud would have a minimal impact upon its carefully-cultivated tropical setting.

“Alaya Resort Ubud is still very much a boutique property through and through,” said AIM’s Jimmy Gunawan. “In placing the new wing at the back, the changes to the resort are subtle at first look, while bringing a significant boost to its capacity, which has now increased to over 100 rooms.”

Located in the very center of Ubud on Jalan Hanoman, the resort offers rice paddy views as the renowned. It is also within walking distance of the popular Monkey Forest Sanctuary, a sacred nature reserve and temple complex.
