"HAPPY 10th ANNIVERSARY...
Does not matter if you are 'naughty' or 'nice,' as
long as you deliver the truth . . .like you always do . . .
For sure that I am not the only one who is always. . .waiting for the next week edition of yours ...every week . . . Maybe because of the 'naughty' & 'nice' information you have been sharing...
Congratulations for all the achievements and keep on 'growing naughtily & nicely!'"

"Congratulations. As you can see, I'm on another small island now but I still find it good to catch up with goings on there on my favorite island."

I have found it so helpful and welcoming every week for the past 5 years to get news from 'home' . . .and feel like I am still part of Bali…matur suksma… Keep up the fantastic work and I wish you many more years of 'bisnis.'"

"Congratulations on 10 years of unbiased and informative service. It is my way of keeping up with news and events in Bali. You do an excellent job!"
• Bernard suggests Bali Update provides news you may not find from other sources :
"You are in the 'nice' category, indeed!
I have been subscribing for many years now. I live in Bali but I always learn things that are happening and I was not aware of in spite of watching TV and reading newspapers.
Please, continue that way."
• David Hall, a prominent figure in Indonesian and Australian tourism wrote from South Australia :

Here's to the next ten years!"

"Congratulations to your 10th anniversary and our very sincere thanks for all the important information we were able to get from your newsletter in all those years. We hope you will be able to continue for a long time to come. Great job done: contents, form, style ... all very 'nice.'"
