An Inability to Make Change
Thief Caught by Public After Trying to Rob Kuta Moneychanger

The Kuta Police Precinct continue to investigate a failed attempt to violently rob the Money Change Cash X-Change (PT Semangat Anal Rantau), located on Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai Number 17X in Kuta, that occurred on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

As reported by Nusa Bali, Tonny Sucipto (44) is under arrest by after threatening the staff of the moneychanger with a sharp weapon.

Sucipto, originally from Bandung, West Java, was staying at a hotel on Jalan Buana Raya, Gang Buana Dwipa, in Kuta prior to the robbery. Employees from the moneychanger report that Sucipto was seen near the business and an adjoining mini-mart in the days immediately prior to the crime.

A female employee at the money changer told police that the robber appeared inexperienced as he blundered his way through trying to rob the business, shaking nervously as he threatened to stab several employees. When one employee screamed hysterically, Sucipto ran out of the moneychanger and tried to escape on his waiting motorcycle.

The attempted robbery and escape were recorded by a CCTV system in operation at the moneychanger.

Tonny Sucipto was arrested at 11:00 am on the day of the robbery when citizens who chased him from the moneychanger caught him when his motorcycle became caught in a traffic jam in Kuta.

Police have seized the man’s motorcycle and other evidence and are working to determine if he had any accomplices in the crime.


Flash Flood Hit Klungkung
Heavy Rains Cause Damage in Klungkung Regency, including Sidewalks Surrounding Catus Pata Kota Klungkung Monument

NusaBali reports that heavy rains and flooding in Klungkung are being blamed for the destruction of a 3-meter-long stretch of sidewalk adjoining the Puputan Monument in the City’s center.

The stretch of sidewalk washed away leaving a dangerously exposed open gutter on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 and deposited mud and trash in front the historical Catus Pata Kota Klungkung Monument area.

The Regent of Klungkung, I Nyoman Suwitra, inspected the damage at the scene and immediately ordered the head of Public Works for the Regency to clean area and repair the damage. While the work is underway, Suwitra asked that warning signs and barriers be put in place to prevent any unwanted accidents.

The same heavy rains in Klungkung resulted in flooding along the Candigara River in the village of Kusamba. Knee-high water inundated 12 homes along the side of the river’s banks. Villagers say flooding is a yearly occurrence caused by garbage washed downstream that clogs the river and causes flooding to those living near the river.

Suwitra, in an effort to prevent further flooding, ordered heavy construction equipment to the location of the flooding to dredge the river’s to remove trash and accumulated sediment. At the same time, the Regent called on the public to stop throwing their trash into rivers while his government seeks to undertake a dredging of the entire Candigara River.


Fitting Attire in the Eyes of God
Hindu Religious Authorities Remind Bali’s Faithful of Proper Dress Protocols When Visiting a Temple

The Indonesian Hindu Religious Council (PHDI) has reminded Balinese Hindus to dress conservatively when attending ceremonies at local temples. Religious leaders remind that costumes worn while attending Hindu temples should contribute to the solemnity and reverence befitting such events.

For women, PHDI suggests women should be clad in white kebayas with sleeves that extend beyond the elbow. Similarly, kamen or sarongs should extend to the ankle, and not merely cover the knee.

As reported by NusaBali, the chairman of the Bangli chapter of PHDI, I Nyoman Sukra, has long been an advocate of a proper dress standards for Hindu worshippers, saying dress during worship reflects both not only a mode of dress, but also demonstrate a philosophical outlook.

Nyoman Sukra says women should wear kebayas that are of a “calm color” as opposed to being too bright. White, long-sleeved kebayas are to be preferred. Women’s hairstyle should be in a free-flowing hair fall (Pasung gonjer) for single women and in a bundled hairstyle (sanggul) for married women.

Meanwhile Hindu men visiting a temple are suggested to wear a white headscarf (udeng), a white shirt and ideally a white sarong.

Both men and women should dress in a way that does not arouse attention and distract others from their prayers and rituals. Sukra explains that dress for Hindu worshippers must be polite, neat, clean and not accent parts of the body that can cause sexual arousal.

Heads of traditional villages in the Regency of Bangli are helping to spread the word on the reverential and polite ways to dress among Hindu religious worshippers.


Limited Visibility Closes Airport
Weather Closes Bali Airport for 30 Minutes on Tuesday, 13 September

Beritabali.com reports that Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport was forced to suspend landings and take-offs for thirty minutes on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, due to limited visibility resulting from heavy rain and fog.

With visibility falling below 500-meters, flight operations had to be halted until conditions improved.

The shutdown occurred at approximately 8:00 am on Tuesday morning until visibility improved at 8:30 am when take-off and landings could resume.

Airport officials say the short period of the shutdown meant that the impact and inconvenience caused for passengers waiting for flight departures was minimal.

The flash rainstorm that fell across most of the southern part of the Island on Tuesday morning also caused flooding in some areas of the capital and was blamed for traffic congestion in various areas of the capital.


The Battle with the Cattle
Kuta, Bali Officials Threaten to Tranquillise Cows Found Roaming Freely on Major Roadways

NusaBali reports that four cows were photographed and placed on social media wandering through the busy Dewi Ruci underpass in Kuta, Bali on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

The head of the local public order team in Kuta (Komandan Regu Pol PP), Ketut Soma, told the press that he was shocked to find cows were (again) roaming freely on one of Bali’s busiest roads.

Soma told the press: “We have an agreement in place that stipulates whenever local people continue to fail to control their cattle, their ownership of the animals can be forfeited. But the reality is that this has happened (again). The local government and neighborhood chiefs have (already) tried to approach and educate the cattle’s owner. But this is apparently having no positive effect if you see what is happening.”

Ketut Soma lamented to the press that the problem of cattle wandering onto major roadways is a reoccurring disturbance in his jurisdiction. In the past, farmers have responded and captured their livestock found walking on major roads and placed them in fenced areas. Adding: “Don’t blame us if we have to eventually seize the cows. There is an agreement in place and everyone knows the rules. I hope the cattle owners will keep their side of the deal.”

Soma said that the cows not only cause traffic problems and make the roads unclean, adding: “If a collision occurs because of these cows, who will be responsible?”

Ketut Soma warned that his team is prepared to order his officers to tranquillize the cows if cattle continue to be found on any major road. 


All That Jazz!
Plans Announced to Launch Denpasar Jazz Festival at 9th Denpasar Festival to be Held in Late 2016

Plans have been announced to premiere the Denpasar Jazz Festival as part of the 9th Denpasar Festival to be held in Bali’s capital later this year.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the launching a new music festival in Bali was announced after a meeting between internationally renowned Balinese musician I Wayan Balawan and Denpasar’s Mayor IB Rai Dharmawijaya on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Balawan revealed that the Denpasar Jazz Festival will showcase the talent of both local and national musicians performing in a wide range of genres, including jazz, contemporary and Indonesian traditional music performing in collaboration. Balinese pop musicians are also slated to perform at the the event.

The organizers of Denpasar Jazz say the aim of the event is for local musicians to trade ideas and abilities with fellow performers from across Indonesia while promoting Bali tourism.

The specific dates for the Denpasar Festival and Denpasar Jazz Festival were not mentioned in the meeting with the mayor or posted on the Denpasar Festival Website, the Denpasar Festival is traditionally held at year’s end in December.

 


Making Bali’s Seas Safer
Bali Governor Calls for More Involvement by Provincial Officials in Supervising Passenger Ship Safety Following Padang Bai Tragedy

Following the tragic fire on the Gili Cat II sailing from Bali to Gili Trawangan the killed 2 and left 33 badly injured, Bali’s Governor Made Mangku Pastika is demanding that all ships carrying tourists from Bali be inspected by provincial authorities to ensure seaworthiness.
.
As reported by NusaBali, Pastika has asked the Ministry of Transportation in Bali to be open and cooperative in performing their duty of supervising the operations of seaports in Bali.

At present, responsibility and authority in port operations is dominated by the Ministry of Transportation, while the Regional Transportation Service (Dinas Perhubungan) has little or no say-so in port operations.

“In this situation, who is to blame? We feel that though we are given no attention. This is a problem of authority,” explained Pastika on Friday, September 16, 2019, one day after the explosion on board the ship.

Pastika said the perception is that Bali’s ports are under the full authority of the Ministry of Transportation, as though local transportation officials are powerless. The Governor outlined how local transportation officials are barred from even visiting the scene of an accident, as is the case with the explosion on board the Gili Cat II. Saying cooperation is needed in handling such events, the Governor insists that the Bali Transportation Service must be allowed to participate in accident investigations.

Pastika is calling for inspections to be carried out by the Port Masters (Syahbandar) to ensure that ships carrying tourists from Bali are seaworthy. Adding: “Because this is the second time this has happened, we ask the Transportation Service for the Province of Bali to conduct safety checks. We express our condolences following this accident. It has damaged the reputation of our tourism industry.”

Meanwhile, the Bali Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) is also calling for an investigation into the explosion on board the Gili Cat II as it set sail from the pier at Padang Bai bound for Gili Trawangan. I Nengah Tamba, the chairman of Commission III of the Bali DPRD that deals with transportation issues, told the press that the House together with the Provincial Transportation Service would soon visit Bali’s seaports.

Tamba said the supervision of port operations in Bali under the Syahbandar system is very weak. Tamba shared his own experience of sailing to Nusa Penida and how boats are frequently overloaded with goods and passengers, citing such behavior as proof that the ships’ captains are negligent in areas connected with safety.

In an effort to mitigate the latest tragedy, the head of Bali’s Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali), Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati (Cok Ace), said he is lobbying to see that the casualties from the explosion on board the Gili Cat II receive medical assistance, accommodation support, and transportationservices. Adding: “We must show empathy to these people. This will also help repair our tourism image.”



Cause of Death Not Clear
French Tourist Found Dead in Private Villa Pool bear Ubud, Central Bali

Police continue to investigate the case and any role played by the syringe in the man's death.

Motorcycle Mayhem
Moroccan Woman Dies After Plunging into Ravine While Driving to Lovina

A Moroccan female tourist, Sanaa Hissame (26), died while driving a motorcycle on the Singaraja-Tigawasa road near the village of Kaliasem in Buleleng on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

The young woman died after the motorcycleon on which she was riding plunged 5-meters into a roadside ravine. According to NusaBali, a traveling companion, Wilijana Vujaklija, who was traveling as a pillion passenger, survived the accident with only minor injuries.

The accident took place at 6:00 am with Hissame at the controls of the motorcycle with her Serbian friend, Wilijana Vujaklija (36), traveling as a passenger on the bike. Driving towards Lovina, the two women had left their villa in Ubud at 4:00 am.

The duo had decided not to take the main road to Lovina, choosing instead to take an alternative route using Google Map.

Traveling down a steep hill, Hissame lost control of the motorcycle when police believe her brakes may have failed before plunging down a steep ravine. In the ensuing fall, the Moroccan woman suffered fatal head injuries. Meanwhile, the Serbian woman escaped with only minor cuts and abrasions.

Those living near the scene of the crash alerted the police who arrived to find Hissame dead at the scene, while Wilijina was taken to a hospital in Singaraja for treatment for severe emotional shock.


The Last Word
Turkish Woman Leaps to Her Death from Cliff-Side Villa in Ungasan, South Bali

NusaBali reports that a Turkish woman committed suicide after jumping from a 50-meter high embankment in front of Vila Milos-Lajoya at Ungasan Village in South Bali.

Yeliz Kemaloglu (32) had reportedly just been engaged in an argument with her boyfriend, Onur Aslan (28), before she jumped from a cliff in front of the Vila Milos-Lajoya that she and her companion had rented for a holiday. The couple had dined earlier in the evening at the Teba Café, Desa Jimbaran.

News reports state the couple had been drinking heavily during the course of the evening. Engaged in a heated argument at the cliff top, a security guard urged the couple to return to their villa in order to avoid disturbing other guests staying in the vicinity.

The incident took place at 1:00 am on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.

Colliding with rocks at the bottom of the cliff, the woman suffered horrific injuries and died on the cliffside.

Those on the scene credit Onur Aslan, the woman’s boyfriend, with trying to prevent the woman from jumping. However, Kemaloglu fought and slipped the man's grasp before leaping to her death on Balangan Beach.

Police says Kemaloglu became extremely angry when she discovered Aslan in the act of sending a WhatApp message to a former girlfriend.

It took the police with the help of local residents 2-hours to retrieve the woman’s body that was sent to the Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar for forensic examination.


Tourism with Porpoise
Efforts Underway to Train Sustainable Practice to Boatmen and Guides Operating Dolphin Tours in North Bali

The free-swimming dolphins that swim along Bali’s north shore near Lovina have become something of an iconic mascot for the tourism industry of the entire Buleleng Regency.

However, the growing desire of tourists to see the playful dolphins of North Bali has also become a threat to the continuing existence the swimming mammals. Daily visits by tourists in local boats that chase the dolphins has been determined to be a source of stress and is causing the dolphins to leave Bali’s North Shore in search of more peaceful surroundings.

NusaBali reports that the Regency of Buleleng is seeking to protect the dolphins by educating local boatmen on correct procedures in conducting dolphin tours that will make dolphin tours a more sustainable tourism project

Research carried out in 2016 by the Cetacean Sirenian Indonesian Foundation (CSI) documented a number of threats to the continuing existence of the dolphins.

The director of CSI, Dr. Putu Liza Mustika, said that too many tourist ships operating in close proximity to dolphins threaten the mammal’s eco-system. Among the chief problem posed by the boats is the speed at which they are operated when chasing the dolphins with boats filled with tourists.

Many foreign tourists joining the dolphin tours have also complained of the lack of concern for the dolphin’s welfare shown by boat captains.

According to Dr. Mustika, of the 8 species of dolphin known to exist in North Bali, only the Spinner Dolphins appear during dolphin tours.

CSI is reporting some success in their efforts to educate dolphin tour boat operators. Dr. Mustika said that the captains of the boats are now showing signs of change as they now drive their boats at lower speeds and turn off their engines whenever they get within 50 meters of the dolphins.

Research by CSI shows that when the ships get too close to the dolphins the mammals can become depressed and seek out new areas of the sea as their habitat. Operating ships close to pods of dolphins has also been linked to injuries and death to the animals caused by boats' propellors.

Progress is also being made via efforts by local officials to provide training for guides and captains leading tourists on dolphin encounters.

Ayodya Resort Bali to Hold ‘Ayodya Batik Festival 2016’ October 7-9, 2016

To honor of National Batik Day that falls on Sunday, October 2, 2016 - a day dedicated to celebrating the highly-esteemed tradition of batik making that flourishes in many parts of the Nation, Ayodya Resort Bali is launching its inaugural Ayodya Batik Festival 2016 – October 7-9, 2016.

The three-day event will include a variety of cultural music performances, food stalls, local art exhibitions, fashion shows and a product exhibitions. The opening night will take place at the Beach Garden of Ayodya Resort Bali with exhibition space extending to the Grand Ballroom and adjoining foyer.

Targeted to attract over 1000 attendees, the Ayodya Resort Bali hopes to turn the Ayodya Batik Festival into an annual affair on the hotel’s calendar of important events.

Celebrating Indonesia's local artists, the festival will see stunning performances from Balawan, Batuan Ethnic, Ceraken Gamelan Orchestra, Emoni Music Group and Kobagi, together with a fashion showcase of traditional pieces created by local designers such as Afif Syakur, Putu Aliki, Linda Lirose, Monika Weber, Weda Githa, Neli Gunawan, Dwi Iskandar, Cindy Lavina and Solo with love by Joko SSP.

Simple Truths, Plainly Spoken
Chairman of Bali-APINDO Suggest Bali’s Tourism Development is Badly Out of Synch

While Bali continues to add more hotel rooms at a rapid rate, average occupancies are failing to keep pace, declining with each passing year. Data supplied by the Bali Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali) says Bali now has 130,000 hotel rooms. But, these are only the formal figures and do not include villa, elite boarding houses and private residences that have been converted to tourist accommodation.

As reported by Balipost.com, the chairman of the Indonesian Entrepreneur Association-Bali (APINDO-Bali), Panudiana Kuhn, is concerned by current developments in Bali’s tourism industry. Kuhn says data from PHRI-Bali shows that something between 4 – 4.5 million foreign tourists came to Bali in 2015. A similar number of domestic tourists visited the island during the same year.

At the same time, hotel occupancies in Bali in 2015 averaged around only 45%. Ironically, against declining occupancy levels in Bali, a massive increase in new hotel rooms is underway. “The number of existing rooms and the number tourists coming to Bali are not in Balance,” warns Kuhn.

Based on the number of available room, Kuhn thinks Bali needs something between 18 – 20 million domestic and international tourists are needed to achieve economically sustainable levels of hotel occupancies. Kuhn, however, suspects that Bali’s infrastructure is incapable of handling such a large number of visitors.

“The problem now is whether or not the infrastructure of Bali is sufficient? We need an infrastructure that can support that number of visitors. Don’t only focus on South Bali,” said Kuhn.

With only 4.5 million foreign visitors to Bali, the Island is already badly over crowded. During holiday periods, traffic congestion affects most areas. “At the very least we need to make freeways or toll roads that will connect South Bali, North Bali, East Bali and West Bali,” said Kuhn.
.
The well-respected businessman said he is aware that neither the Province, the regents nor the mayor of Denpasar have sufficient funds to build the much needed additional infrastructure.

Kuhn said the current condition of Bali should become a consideration for the political candidates for Bali’s governorship and regents’ jobs. Adding: “Don’t let the programs being proposed be little more than just ideas without a real effort to solve the problems of Bali that are becoming increasingly complex.”


The Importance of Bee-ing
Island-Wide Initiative Launched to Reverse the Declining Bee Populations in Bali and all of Indonesia

Hatten Wines, Ratu Lestari Alami and Four Seasons Resorts at Sayan are combining forces to host a one-week program of honey tasting, educational activities and ideas-exchange to create awareness of the declining bee population in Bali and Indonesia as a whole.

Hatten Wines and Ratu Lestari Alami will host a full week of conferences and educational talks in combination with an educational display on the topic of the declining bee populations and its effects on Bali and Indonesia.

The week of activities that start on September 22, 2016, aim to create awareness and promote solutions that individuals, companies, and communities can take to repopulate the Island with bees.

The goal of 2000 Hives for Bali by 2017 - a volunteer initiative by Ratih Nurruhliati and Kelly Marciano - will present research findings, strategies and information on beekeeping, creating permanent education displays at Hatten Wines’ The Cellar Door, and undertake a iinitiatives to help repopulate Bali’s bee colonies.

Supported by experienced beekeeper Chef Liam Nealon of the Four Seasons at Sayan, the week will also feature ‘honeylicious’ dishes and culinary presentations, featuring wild honey collected from 6 different locations in Indonesia and made by 4 different native bee species.

Ratu Lestari Alami offers a range of solutions for Bali to rescue its vanishing been populations: Sponsoring a Queen, hosting a beehive and planting a bee-friendly meadow in local gardens - are all solutions workable on an individual level. For hotels, an initiative led by Four Seasons Sayan is to establish beehives on their estates in order to serve local honey to their guests and support the local environment. Meanwhile, villages are invited to participate in the bee re-population by receiving training and acquiring beehives to see local crops of coffee, clove and other fruit and vegetables flourish again.

This call to action is island-wide and all are invited to visit the Hatten Wines Building in Sanur during this education and awareness week, to learn how to participate in the repopulation.

Hatten Wines is also unveiling its plan to convert part of the Sanggalangit Vineyards to a beehive center where beehives will be hosted, bee products harvested, and a bee friendly meadow planted. Local residents will be trained to become the beekeepers, and in turn supply honey for sale. The Sanggalangit Vineyard of Hatten Wines is surrounded by guava and orange groves which will benefit from the presence of the pollinating bees.

Hatten Wines is also donating palette wood for the building of beehives collaborating with Ratu Lestari Alami in achieving it’s ‘2000 Hives for Bali’ by 2017.

Four Seasons Sayan has committed to supporting this program and the goal of ‘2000 Hives for Bali’, led by Chef Liam who will put his beekeeping skills into action at the Resort’s own bee hives. He will also showcase his culinary skills in the show kitchen at Hatten Wines’ private dining room, for the opening night and Slow Food Bali event.

“We are honored to support Hatten Wines and Ratu Lestari Alami’s commitment to repopulating Bali’s bees. Life on earth depends on the bees, and we should all be concerned by the declining yields in various crops across Bali and Indonesia. We encourage everyone to get behind this initiative and let the honey flow!” said Liam.

Call to Action

Will The Disappearance Of Bees Cause A Food Shortage In Bali?

Bees are the most important pollinator of our fruits, vegetables, nuts, and spices. Every 3rd bite of food we take depends on a bee. In total, over 100 food crops depend on bees. Last year the USA lost 36% of its honeybee population. Europe lost 20%, and Australia lost an estimated 25% of its bee population.

Why should we be concerned?

Villages in North Bali have seen the decline in production of clove and coffee plantations due to the decline of bees in that area. Is Bali also losing bees. Why is it happening? And what can be done about it?

Gili Cat II Fast Ferry Disaster
Two Confirmed Dead and 33 Injured in Bali Fast Ferry Accident at Padang Bai

Indonesia police and Ministry of Transportation officials continue to investigate an explosion on board Gili Cat II traveling from Padang Bai in Bali to Gili Trawangan on Thursday, September 15, 2016, that causes 2 deaths and injured 33 others among its complement of 35 passengers and 4 crew.

DenPost reports that police are interviewing four passengers who survived the accident, seven other eyewitnesses and four crewmembers.

The head of the Karangasem Police Precinct, AKBP Sugeng Sudarso, said preliminary findings point to negligence as opposed to sabotage as the underlying cause of the tragedy. A spokesman for the Bali Provincial Police, Kombes AA Made Sudana, shared this view suggesting the explosion resulted from an accumulation of gas fumes that were trapped below deck. Both policemen are viewing the accident as a misadventure.

Police suspicions in the case are strengthened by reports from witnesses who report smelling fuel on board the ship prior to departing Padang Bai. Police suspect that accumulated gas fumes were ignited by a short circuit or other source triggering the explosion.

Following the explosion, police pumped 1,500 liters of fuel from the ship now docked alongside a pier at Padang Bai for further forensic examination.

DenPost reports that the tragic accident has had little effect on passenger numbers traveling to Gili Trawangan, with passenger totals apparently running at normal levels. Port officials estimate an average of 1,000 passengers take the boat trip each day from Padang Bai to Gili Trawangan at this time of year. During the busiest periods of the year, that passenger number increases to some 2,500 each day.

The two passengers who died in the accident have been identified in the press as Vanessa Pascual (44) from Spain and Katrin Zefferer (42) from Austria. Among the passengers injured in the explosion are reportedly foreigners who lost limbs, suffered major bone fractures and severe burns. The injured are being treated at hospitals located across the Island.
