Imagining the Very Best
Hard Rock Hotel Bali: Helping to Feed and Educate Needy Bali Kids

December was a month to “take time to share” at Hard Rock Hotel Bali. In keeping with its mantra, members of the Hard Rock team visited two orphanages in Bali’s capital of Denpasar bringing food and nourishment to needy kids.

Click Image to Enlarge
The visits conducted on December 18, 2013, were part of Yoko Ono and Hard Rock’s global initiative against children hunger and poverty – “Imagine There’s No Hunger”

In the spirit of the Festive Season, more than 120 children and caretakers were served food from the “All is One” effort presented by staff and guests of the Hotel.

Hard Rock Hotel Bali's special adaptation of the global campaign is entitled “Sing Can Can” in which hotel staff and guests donate a minimum one item of canned food to help the underprivileged children.

“Sing Can Can” derives from “Sing Ken Ken,” -  a local Balinese phrase meaning “don’t worry.” 

Hard Rock Hotel Bali is working to spread a positive spirit among children through raising funds to finance school fees and provide pocket money for school meals.

“We believe in supporting grass root projects like this. We are touched and pleased at the same time to personally meet the children. Hard Rock Hotel Bali encourages everyone to contribute and we hope that our effort may spread the awareness to help the needy,” said Andrew Khoo, general manager of the Hotel.

Members of the public purchasing signature “Imagine” merchandise items including charity bracelets, t-shirts and charity pins to support the campaign. Proceeds from Hard Rock’s global campaign directly benefit “WhyHunger” - a leader in building the global movement to end hunger and poverty, and its grassroots partners around the globe in hopes of finding long-term solutions through sustainable agriculture.

Showing them the Door
Busy Holiday Garuda Flight Bound for Bali Delayed When Catering Truck Damages Aircraft Door

A catering vehicle damaged the door on Garuda Indonesia Flight GA-417 from Jakarta to Denpasar on Christmas Eve 2013, resulting in a delay of more than 3 hours during a peak holiday travel period.

A passenger booked on the subject flight complained to detik.com that the plane originally scheduled to fly at 6:05 pm was still on the ground at 9:30 pm.

Passengers also confirmed to the press that the door of the aircraft was badly damaged by the catering truck

The accident occurred on Apron D at Jakarta’s Soekarno Hatta International Airport.

Separately, a senior public relations manager for Garuda Indonesia, Ikhsan Rosan confirmed the mishap, but was unable to share details on the extent of the damage caused by the catering truck.


A Traditional Balinese Christmas
A Catholic Enclave in West Bali Blends Hindu and Christian Traditions to Celebrate Christmas

The Christian holiday of Christmas was celebrated in the village of Ekasari, Jembrana, Bali with traditional dances based on long-standing Bali-Hindu themes.

What appears at first as a cultural anomaly is, in fact, a long-standing tradition in the Christian enclave of Ekasari in West Bali.

Wayan Suryatna, a resident of Ekasari, told the State News Agency Antara, “The celebration of Christmas is marked by dance creations such as the ‘Merak Angel’ and ‘Kembang Girang’ – all adapted from Balinese dance forms.”

These two dances largely resemble traditional Balinese dances with specific movements incorporated into the final presentation to accommodate Christmas themes.

An estimated 700 families followed Christmas celebrations in Ekasari from three neighborhoods (banjars) where the majority of residents are Roman Catholics.

Because the Catholics of Ekasari trace their ancestral roots to Bali, religious ceremonies are held in a large and magnificent Catholic Church that includes Balinese architectural finishes. Worshippers dress in traditional Balinese garb.

In the period leading up to Christmas, the Catholics of Ekasari also visi the graves of their ancestors located in a picturesque graveyard standing near their church. Bearing offerings, flowers and burning incense reminiscent of Bali-Hindu ceremonies, the people of Ekasari pause at family graves to offer Christian prayers of remembrance.


Color of Life
Paintings by Hengki Pudjianto January 20 – March 20, 2014 at the Ganesha Gallery – Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay

Hengki Pudjianto started his artistic career as an abstract painter. Born
And raised in Surabaya, Indonesia, he now lives and works in Bali.

A self-taught artist, his new works of art in the current exhibitio have developed to become more figurative and modern. His abstract works reveal a desire to create something that is moving and alive; capable of catching the beauty of color and form.

Deeply-held individual emotions are translated by Hengki into statements that have a broader, more universal appeal able to communicate the artist’s perception on human relationships with his audience.

Hengki draws by reaching out with his soul to those around him resulting in emotional responses that are reflected on his canvasses. The colors and texture in turn evoke compassion, awaken empathy and ignite sensualities.

"The Color of Life" - the theme embraced by Hengki Pudjianto in his current exhibition – demonstrate that abstract painting as a medium of artistic expression need not be dark or dull. His works present styles and colors that are easily enjoyed.

Wretched Refuse of Our Teaming Shores
Seasonal Inundation of Trash Lands on Kuta Beach as ‘Westerlies’ Begin

As 2014 dawns in Bali, the popular Kuta Beach area of the island is receiving its seasonal wash up of large amounts of flotsam and jetsam that arrive by the ton with each rising tide.

The normally relatively debris-free stretch of Kuta Beach began to fill with large piles of trash two days before Christmas; a condition expected to persist well into the month of January 2014.

Washing into Bali from far and near, the trash is comprised of logs, timber, coconuts, bottles, miscellaneous trash and plastics of all description.

So pervasive is the inundation of floating trash that, despite continual efforts by local residents and Kuta Park officials, many visitors are refusing to venture into the water.

Beritabali.com reports that foreign tourists visiting Kuta beach are voicing their dissapoinment with the rubbish, complaining they had received no prior information of this seasonal phenomenon.

One Canadian tourist, Katie Pierson, said on Christmas Day 2013 that she had heard that Kuta beach was very beautiful, but when she arrived it was “very dirty and disgusting.”

Those working to haul away the accumulating debris say the phenomenon is a seasonal event coupled with the start of westerly winds that bring trash from Java and Sumatra to Bali’s shores.


A Deadly Debt
Man Accused of Killing Balinese Policeman Caught in East Java

Suara Pembaruan reports that following an extended manhunt, a 32-year-old man, identified only with the initials of MS, has been apprehended in connecion with the killing of a Balinese policeman.

MS was discovered hiding in the village of Sebanen, Jember, East Java.

Police had been hunting for the man for more than a week when found cowering in the chicken coop owned by a religious leader of the village.

The head of the Denpasar Municipal Police Precinct, Djoko Hariutomo, confirmed the capture of the man on Sunday, December 22, 2013. He said the man was caught at 5:30 am while asleep and offered no resistance to the apprehending officers.

Police said they would now question the man, including determining who may have aided him in his escape from Bali.

MS is accused of killing a Balinese police Commissioner Putu Suarsa (49). The killing took place at the home of the accused at Jalan Kerta Dalem Sari IV in Sidarkya, Denpasar on Sunday, December 15, 2013.

The murder was reportedly a spontaneous reaction to threats made by the Balinese policeman who was working in an unauthorized “side job” as a debt collector. MS retaliated to threats and rough treatment from the policeman by stabbing him to death.

The policeman was reportedly trying to grab MS’ motorcycle as a guarantee for an outstanding Rp. 2.5 million (US$208) debt he was attmepting to collect when the man took a kitchen knife and stabbed Putu Suarsa in the back.

The wounded policeman, who was an assistant in charge of detention and evidence at Bali Police Headquarters, died at the scene of the attack.


Don’t Be Home for Christmas
Bali Increasingly Concerned that Bonanza of Holiday Visitors May Not Materialize

Many hotels and lodging places in Bali were busy since early December preparing to answer an expected rush of Christmas and New Year’s guests.

Christmas decorations were laid and special meals and entertainments planned to welcome holiday guests.

As reported by Republika.co.id, many hotels in Bali by Saturday, December 21, 2013, had made the unwelcome discovery that the expected avalanche of Island visitors was yet to materialize.

What’s more, some hotels were entering the peak holiday period with occupancies averaging as low as only 30%.

Gede Mahendra, a housekeeper at a five-star hotel in Nusa Dua told the press, “I have been put on temporary leave for three days because the hotel remains quiet.” Mahedra was sent home on Thursday, December 19, 2013.

The hotel worker expressed concern at his “forced” three-day holiday followed closely a similar “holiday” of seven days. “If I don't work, even though I get my wages, the service charge is reduced,” he explained. The service charge is the 10% charge placed on all hotel bills that are eventually shared among all workers.

The downturn in hotel occupancies in the lead up to Christmas and New Year 2014 was confirmed by Ngurah Wijaya, the Chairman of the Bali Tourism Board. Without citing specific occupancy levels, Wijaya remain confident that occupancies will increase after the Christmas period.

Said Wijaya: “Right now, tourists are still concentrating on enjoying Christmas at home. After that they will think about taking a holiday.”

For the 2013-2014 holiday period Bali is largely dependent on domestic tourism, rather than foreign visitors. This marks a change from Christmas Season's  past when foreign tourists predominated over the year-end period.


Good Hosts and Good Hotels in Bali
Bali Hotels Association Ends 2013 with a Positive Note

The Bali Hotels Association (BHA) closed out 2013 with a busy program of social activities that included an early morning fun walk joined by 400 hotel workers. Held at the Nusa Dua Peninsula within the BTDC complex, the walk coincided with the closing of BHA’s annual Sports Tournament held each year to strengthen relations between the many hotels who form the membership of the Association.

number of valuable prizes were presented to the fun walkers ranging from washing machines, hotel vouchers and airline tickets to domestic destinations.

Earlier in the month of December, BHA hosted its 6th Blood Drive of the year at HARRIS Kuta Beach on December 6, 2013. Led by Virginie Tutin Sandstrom as BHAs Community Service Program chairman, over 400 bags of blood were collected during the year alone for patients at Sanglah Hospital and other local medical centers.

As the month dawned, on December 1, 2013, the annual BHA Scholarship night was held in co-operation with Yayasan Bali Hijau Lestari. A group of 30 past scholarship recipients from past academic years were present at the gathering held at Mount Batur, Kintamani during the 5th Bali Reforestation Festival.

The event, that saw 300 trees planted at Kintamani, was part of a regular meet and greet program among the scholars determined to support worthwhile conservation projects. This reflected an institutional commitment on the part of BHA to sustainability and environmental conservation.

“Bali Hotel Associations is extremely proud of all that has been achieved this year through its various programs. This is all thanks to our hardworking Board of Directors and the supporting teams from member hotels,” commented Alessandro Migliore, chairman of the Bali Hotels Association.

The Bali Hotels Association represents more than 100 hotels and resorts in Bali comprising more than 15,000 hotel rooms and employing 30,000 workers.


Benoa’s Soaring Appeal for Cruise Ships
South Bali Cruise Port A Hits with International Cruise Operators

The popularity and supremacy of Bali’s southernmost port of Benoa was further cemented by the fact that 43 international cruise ships called on the port during 2013. The general manager of Pelindo III, Ali Sodikin, confirmed this tally for Benoa on Thursday, December 26, 2013 in comments made to Bisnis Bali.

Sodikin said the MV Voyager from Regent Seven Seas Cruise Lines us the last ship to call on Benoa in 2013. The ship spent two days over Christmas at Benoa carrying a complement of crew and passengers exceeding 2,000 people.

During the ship’s visit, officials from the port were invited on board to tour the vessel.

The Port of Benoa is reaping rewards for many improvements undertaken in the ship’s basin and supporting port facilities as ships abandon the Port of Padang Bai and the fundamentally flawed nearby port facility established at Tanah Ampo in favor of Benoa.

Port officials confirm further improvements are planned in the Benoa Port during 2014, augmenting its attractiveness to visiting cruise ships. Among the upgrades planned are repairs on the southernmost pier and the creation of a domestic passenger terminal, also in the south.

Adding to Benoa’s popularity as a passenger cruise port is its close proximity to major tourism attractions, hotels and restaurants.

A Snake in the Grass Story from Sanur, Bali
Security Guard at Sanur, Bali Luxury Resort Killed by Python

Bali Post reports that a 59-year-old guard (Satpam), R. Ambar Arianto Mulyo, working in the very heart of Sanur as a guard at the Bali Hyatt Hotel died on Thursday after being squeezed to death by a 4-meter long python.

The Hotel is currently closed for a two-year period while undergoing renovations.

The incident took place on Jalan Danau Tamblingan in Sanur in front of the Hotel. At about 2:00 am on Thursday, Mulyo saw the snake crossing the road heading for the hotel and decided to give chase.

Determined to catch the snake, Mulyo ended up instead being attacked by the snake. As the man held the snake's head and tail to avoid being bitten, the snake managed to coil itself around the his neck. A struggle ensued that saw the man and the snake fall into an open drain where the snake succeeded in chocking Mulyo to death.

A policeman said the snake's body had a circumference equal to a man’s bicep.

The Satpam guard was unable to free himself from the snake's grasp. Friends and associated of the man who witnessed the incident were reportedly too terrified by the snake to assist their friend struggling to breathe.

Once the guard's body lay lifeless, the snake quickly left the scene.

Police from the South Denpasar precinct were called to the scene. The man's body was taken to Sanglah General Hospital.

Police conducted a search for the snake in the tall grass near the hotel but were unable to discover the reptile.


Busted for the Holidays
Bali Airport Official Bust Indonesian Man with 4.7 Kilograms of Methamphetamines.

Custom Officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport have frustrated an attempt by an Indonesian man to smuggle 4.7 kilograms of methamphetamines into Bali on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

Sofyan Jusuf (28) arrived in Bali at 3:00 pm off Malaysian Airlines MH 867 from Kuala Lumpur.

Law enforcement officials put the value of the narcotics seized at Rp. 9.5 billion (US$790,000).

Jusuf, a native of Cianjur, West Java, has been taken to Jakarta by the National Anti-Narcotics Agency (BNN) in order to determine the possible involvement of drug syndicates in the incident.

Officials initially did not discover any drugs, but on a closer examination of the man’s baggage revealed three plastic bags of the white crystal narcotic.

If convicted of smuggling the methamphetamines in a large quantity Jusuf could be punished with the death penalty.

 


Santa’s Little Helpers are Balinese
Beritabali.com Reports a New Twist on an Old Tale Told Each December in Bali

As reported by Balidiscovery.com [Wretched Refuse of Our Teaming Shores], the iconic Kuta beachside is being covered by unwanted debris in large quantities brought to the beach from distant parts of Indonesian by westerly winds.

Click Image to Enlarge


Despite a daily delivery of tons of new trash on each morning’s tide, workers from the Badung Parks Division (DKP) are working overtime to keep the beachside relatively clean. Quick Response Units (URC) and land movers are on continual duty on the beach gathering the refuse to be hauled away to local rubbish dumps.

The chief of the DKP for Badung, Putu Eka Merthawan, speaking while giving instruction to clean up crews on Christmas Day, said: “This (the trash) is cyclical and a yearly part of our work agenda. Based on the experience of the last two years, we are ready to face this natural phenomenon.”

Santa Lends a Hand

In keeping with the Festive Season, the Quick Response Teams from the Park’s Division adorned themselves in Santa Claus costumes, pausing in their work to distribute candy to children drawn to watch the clean up

At present five loaders, one super-loader and two sweeping units are busily cleaning the beach and moving trash to 11 dump trucks deployed to carry the debris away from the beach.

36 workers from the Park Division work each day from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm, pausing only when high wave conditions momentarily prevent clean up activities.

Eka Marthawan said conditions on the beach this year are not as severe as two years ago when an estimated 125 tons washed ashore each day. The rubbish count to date this year has averaged only 6 tons a day.

The DKP has also place communication specialists on the beach to communicate to tourists in English and Indonesian regarding the natural cycle of trash washing ashore on Kuta Beach and the efforts underway to alleviate the problem.

And while they’re explaining the problem to visiting tourist, DKP officials are donning Santa outfits, distributing candies and wishing a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014.


Bali: Australian Domestic Tourist Destination?
Worth Sharing: Who Invited You to Bali?

The Guardian, in an article first published by The Conversation – part of the Guardian Comment Network, featured a thought provoking composition written by academic Angleszka Sobocinska asking “Who invited you to Bali?”

Sobocinska is deputy director of the National Centre for Australian Studies. Her academic background is in history, specializing in the cultural history of Australian-Asian relations, the history of travel and tourism and development.

Who invited you to Bali?” questions basic premises of the international tourism industry and explores the cultural degradation mass tourism brings to a destination.

Taking Bali as a specific case-in-point, Australians constitute 25% of all foreign arrivals to Bali where, she suggests, tolerance and resiliency may be coming to an end as cross-cultural, environmental and social tensions are on the rise.

She also looks at growing demands on limited natural resources, such as water, on an increasingly thirsty Island where 65% of Bali’s water is consumed by tourism. As a result, rivers and rice fields are drying up and salt water intrudes into a rapidly diminishing water table. Meanwhile, developers eye how to turn a profit from the Island's mountainous lakes – Bali’s last vestiges of fresh water.

Also examined by Sobocinska is the rapid loss of agricultural land to tourism development, estimated to be disappearing in Bali at the annual rate of 1,000 hectare. Also under severe strain is Bali's electrical grid where an estimated 50,000 Balinese households sit in absolute darkness watching, from the distance, the after glow of luxury villas and hotels.

Is Tourism the New Form of Colonialism?

On a more basic and perhaps crucial level, the Author raises question of cultural degradation, questioning how her fellow Australians and others have turned certain parts of Bali into a sordid and tawdry domestic destination.

What Bugs us in Bali
Bali Travelers Urged to be on the Alert Chikungunya for Outbreak During Island’s Rainy Season

Western Australian media and Bali Health Officials are warning of a threat of the chikungunya virus during the rainy season now taking place on the Island.

The Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) quotes the head of the Bali Health Office, Ketut Suarjaya, who confirms cases of chikungunya have been found in the regencies of Klungkung and Gianyar.

A mosquito-borne blood virus, the symptoms of chikungunya include crippling joint pain, fever, headaches, nausea, fatigue and rashes.

The joint pain accompanying the disease can last for several days and is often so debilitating that it sometimes contorts the body of its victim. While the pain may persist for several months, recovery is typically complete.

The media of the disease are Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, also associated with the spread of dengue fever.

Medically, chikungunya is considered less dangerous than dengue fever.

Cases of chikungunya have been confirmed in Indonesia in Bali, West Sumatra, Central Java and West Java.

Western Australian Health Officials have recorded 51 cases of chikungunya in 2013 saying more than 90% of those cases were wholly attributable" from people who had been to Bali.

This is a huge spike in chikungunya cases reported in Western Australia, where only 31 cases of the disease were reported for the entire period of 2008-2012.

Precautions include fogging, insect repellents and the elimination of water catchment situations in which the mosquitoes breed.


Local Flavors to Dominate
Bali Capital of Denpasar Prepared to Require Hotels and Accommodation Providers to Offer a Range of Local Cuisine

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports that the Municipality of Denpasar will soon make it mandatory that 10% of all food dishes sold by hotels to be comprised of traditional local cuisine.

The Mayor of Bali’s Capital, Ida Bagus Rai Dharmawijaya Mantra, on Friday, December 27, 2013, explained the coming ruling requiring traditional food be offered at breakfast, lunch and dinner, adding: 

“I’ve talked directly to hotel managers about this in a recent meeting before I sent the announcement, but we need a stricter regulation to ensure their compliance.”

The ruling will affect 23 starred hotels, 196 non-starred hotels and 65 homestays comprising nearly 8,000 rooms.

The move is being promoted as a mean of supporting local culture and the local businesses that will supply the ingredients for the local cuisine mandated by the ruling.
 


Bric-a-Brac as Briquettes
Souvenir and Handicraft Storage Building in Sukawati Burns

A storage facility for Balinese gifts and souvenirs on a side street connecting the community of Celuk with the Sukawati Traditional Market in Gianyar burnt down at mid-day, Saturday, December 28, 2013.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, the fire caused structural and stock damage in the hundreds of millions of rupiah. The company that operates the Buah Tangan Bali Souvenir Shop owned the storage facility.

No injuries were reported in connection with the blaze.

Yulianti, the owner of the building, said she did not yet know the cause of the fire.

A husband and wife team of M. Aris and Eka Mulalasari supervised the building.

Two fire trucks responded to the fire that took two hours to bring under control. The fire is also blamed with causing a multi-jam traffic jam on the road connecting Sukawati and Denpasar.

The Sukawati Police Precinct continues to investigate the incident.


A Voluntary Tax?
Governor Planning to Repitch US$10 Heritage Tax as a ‘Donation'

Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika says his plans to introduce a US$10 heritage tax on every foreign visitor starting in 2014 is being delayed by
legal complications.

Governor Pastika quoted by the State News Agency Antara said, “There’s a legal problem there, so the (the heritage tax) cannot be put into effect.”

The governor’s comments were made at the end of the December monthly town hall meeting held on Saturday, December 28, 2013.

Pastika said a legal conflict exists, as the current framework of the law does not allow the province to impose additional taxes.

“A tax is not allowed. But if it is termed a donation that would be voluntary and the amount requested (for donation) is not stipulated,” explained Pastika.

Because of the limitations on new taxes, the governor’s office is undertaking corrections in the proposed “heritage contribution” so it does not create legal complications.

The intention of the governor is to use the amount donated to protect cultural objects and also provide insurance coverage for tourist visitors who fall sick, have an accident or die while on a Bali holiday.

“This means that not all the money collected will go to the government, while another portion goes to people who have accidents, are sick or die. When tourists dies we now have problems returning the remains,” the governor explained.

The governor admitted that most tourists have insurance, but that coverage sometimes does not extend beyond the borders of their home country. When illness and accidents take place the money collected from the proposed donations would be use to assist international visitors.

Governor Pastika defended his idea of a heritage donation, saying such schemes are already in operation in other countries.

The governor said it was not possible to secure a portion of the US$25 visa-on-arrival fee charged most foreign visitors because that would require a change in the current law.

Straight Flush Trumps a Full House
Expensive Public Toilet Project Along Kuta Beach Unable to Open Due to Lack of Water Supply

Five brand new public toilets reportedly built to a “high international standard” and installed along Kuta Beach will not be available for use during the busy New Year Period when the beach will be invaded by thousands of tourists.

The new toilets have been formally finished and handed over by Badung Tourist Office to the Traditional Village of Kuta who has been designated to manage the facility.

The cost of the project that created 5 toilets was Rp. 2.2 billion (US$183,000).

The problem preventing the use of the new toilets is the lack of a dependable water supply.

Discussions are now reportedly underway between the State Water Board (PDAM) and the Kuta Village.

Because the new toilets cannot be activated without a water supply, portable toilets have been installed along the beach as a temporary measure with visitors asked to pay Rp. 3,000 (US$0.25) to use the bathrooms.

Less Traffic Jams in Bali in 2014
Bali Prepares to Computerize it Busiest Traffic Lights

The Badung Regency Transportation, Communication and Information Agency (Dishubkominfo) has plans in 2014 to install Area Traffic Control Systems (ATCS) on a number of traffic lights operating at South Bali’s busiest intersections.

The automated control systems that change traffic light intervals depending on actual traffic flows are predicted to help reduce or eliminate congested conditions in a number of areas in Bali.

The Badung Dishubkominfo has allocated Rp. 4.4 billion (US$367,000) to purchase ATCS in areas surround Kuta.

The installation of an undisclosed number of ATCSs  in South Bali will take place in phases.

As a preliminary step to the ATCS installation, a fiber optic network is also being installed that will allow the system to interconnect and exchange traffic information.

Local Tourism Leader Says Condition of Airport Damages Bali Tourism Promotion

The vice-chairman of the Indonesian Tourism Association (GIPI-Bali) is decrying the abysmal conditions at Bali’s still-under-renovation Ngurah Rai International Airport.

In an article in The Bali Post, Bagus Sudibya, who also owns a range of travel companies, complained:
  • Confusion at baggage collection conveyors due to a lack of proper signage.
  • The general condition of the domestic arrival hall (still under renovation) that  is dirty and run down. Ceiling tiles are missing due to leaks in the ceiling.
  • Waiting rooms that are very small.
  • The public toilets smelling of urine.
Sudibya, while acknowledging that the terminal was not yet completed, questions if it was fair to make passengers suffer such dire conditions.

He warned that the present state of the airport could damage the image of Bali tourism, especially in the midst of a boom in both domestic and international arrivals over the Christmas and New Years Holiday period.

The GIPI vice-chairman asked: “What impression are we giving to visitors who arrive in such conditions when, in fact, we have worked so hard to promote Bali to tourist visitors? We urge them to come, but when they arrive they are greeted by views such as this.”

He called on the airport’s managers to take carrying capacity into consideration in the day-to-day operation of Bali’s air gateway. What's more, Sudibya said he also encountered a traffic jam of several hours’ duration when he tried to leave the airport.

When a spokesman of PT Angkasa Pura I, the managers of the Airport, was asked to comment, he said: “Yes . . . it’s an ongoing project and there’s sure to be inconveniences, but we are doing our best to overcome them.”

The spokesman, Alfasyah, denied that there was a lack of adequate signage at baggage conveyers. He said all the baggage conveyor indicators were fully functioning.


Unwanted Year End Fireworks
Kuta Hit by Two Fires on Last Weekend of 2013. Four Sent to Local Burn Unit

On the weekend between Christmas and New Years, Kuta, Bali was plagued by two fires.

On Friday, December 27, 2013 at 11:30 pm, a fire on the second floor of the Tirta Dewi Mart on Jalan Dewi Sartika caused some panic for guests in the adjoining Green Garden Hotel.

The fire that destroyed the mini-mart was contained by firefighters but saw hundreds of guests at the adjacent hotel momentarily evacuated as a precautionary measure.

No injuries were reported in the Tirta Dewi Mart fire.

On Sunday, December 29, 2013, a private home on Jalan Mataram, Gang Kelapa Buntu 4 in Kuta, that also served as the kitchen for a nearby Kuta suckling pig (Babi Guling) restaurant, caught fire resulting in serious injuries and substantial property damage.

A gas tank used by the restaurant reportedly exploded destroying the home and business of Nyoman Suastika. In the blaze four motorcycles were destroyed and four people suffered burn injuries.

The fire started at 6:00 am on Sunday while residents of the structure were busily preparing Babi Guling for that day’s sales. Six staff working in the kitchen smelled leaking gas.

Fearful there might be an explosion, one of the staff cut the electrical power to the building. At the same time, however, two workers were cooking suckling pig over an open fire that ignited the leaking gas.

Four people working near the fire suffered burns over large areas of their bodies before making good their escape from the burning building. The blaze quickly spread to the living area of the small building.

Lost in the fire were four motorcycles and Rp. 40 million (US$3,400) in cash.

Firefighters brought the blaze under control by 8:00 am.

The injured are Ni Made Sorni (47), I Nyoman Sukarsa (40), I Ketut Nada (40), and Ni Ketut Kusiani (40) are receiving treatment at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital. The attending physician said the injuries were “grade B” meaning burn wounds are covering between 17% and 35% of their bodies.

The victims have also suffered damage to their respiratory systems.

All remain under intensive care by Sanglah’s General Hospital Burn Center.
