Representing what is widely considered as one of Paris’ finest Michelin-starred dining establishments, the highly acclaimed pair jointly bring honors from gastronomy’s internationally venerated competition Le Taittinger Prix Culinaire 2012 and Mondial Des Art Sucrés 2014 - the confectionary world championships.

The duo’s return to Bali for a second year celebrates a shared vision held with Ju-Ma-Na’s own award-winning team of chefs – championing culinary precision while approaching flavors and ingredients with an experiential “methode de cuisine.

“My main goal in life is to please clients. By constantly honing my skills and evolving the taste and technical presentation of my dishes, I wish only to delight, and share these delicious nuances and discoveries. To stay challenged and seek excellence is reason why I will participate this year in the Meilleur Ouvrier de France,” explained Chef Christophe Schmidt.

Reputed for pushing gastronomic boundaries, Chef Christophe is regarded as one of France’s most prominent culinary talents. Technically astute, he continues to hone his professional abilities by competing against other kitchen heavyweights in prestigious industry events.

The remaining half of the culinary double-act is the young rising star, Chef Gaëtan Fiard. His ability to imbue the sumptuous to the sublime with his sweet confections, was recognized recently at the recent Mondial Des Art Sucrés – International Confectionary Art Competition where he was crowned ‘World Champion’. His artistry in “haute-pâtisserie” presents a wonderful pièce de résistance to complete an unparalleled dining experience. Chef Gaëtan said: “My goal is to create beautiful pastries. I love to experiment and be adventurous – in the kitchen and in life. Travel and meeting people inspires me, adding to the melting pot of what I enjoy doing most.”

Commenting on the team’s return to Bali before departing Paris, Chef Gaëtan added: “Coming from the heart of Paris; not only do we face the city’s upstanding reputation in gastronomy, we must also excite Europe’s most discerning clientele on a daily basis. We are proud to share our savoir-faire and our passion, direct from the Champs-Elysée. I cannot wait to go back and join the camaraderie with our friends at Banyan Tree.”

Chef Christophe chimed in: “This trip to Bali allows me to re-live the amazing and rich experience I had last year. I feel inspired and enjoy the creativity of working with the Ju-Ma-Na team. I can also put into practice some preliminary training before this major competition this autumn.”

Lovers of fine dining visiting Banyan Tree, Ungasan, Bali August 1-9, 2104 can expect to savor the duo’s “culinary atelier” - exquisitely crafted dishes that thoughtfully enchant and invigorate.

Program Announced for 2014 Ubud Writers and Readers Festival October 1-5, 2014

What has become one of South-East Asia’s largest literary events return to Ubud in Central Bali from 1-5 October, 2014.

Ubud Writers & Readers Festival will host over 150 writers from more than 30 countries exploring this year’s theme of ‘Wisdom & Knowledge’ and paying tribute to Saraswati, the Balinese Hindu goddess of learning.

Somewhat ironically, this year's UWRF will encompass the date of October 4th – Saraswati Day in Bali – a day dedicated to books during which devout Balinese refrain from reading!

The program just released features an array of literary lunches, in-depth conversations, panel discussions with some of the world’s leading thinkers and writers, twilight performances, film screenings, poetry slams, street parties, cultural master classes, art exhibitions and book launches.

Among the confirmed international writers include acclaimed author Amitav Ghosh, Pulitzer Prize finalist Deborah Baker, scientist and Australian of the Year Tim Flannery, 2014 DSC Prize-winner Cyrus Mistry, 5 Star Billionaire author and Booker Prize finalist Tash Aw and much-loved children’s book writer Mem Fox.

On top of that, ‘genius’ debut novelist and Baileys Prize-winner Eimear McBride has joined the line-up, as well as graphic artist Reinhard Kleist,
Women of Letters founder Michaela McGuire, memoirist Liam Pieper, 2014 Miles Franklin shortlisted nominee Fiona McFarlane, and intrepid adventurer and author of On the Trail of Genghis Khan - Tim Cope.

Those on hand in Ubud can also look for Tracks creator Robyn Davidson with her memoir that was made into a hit film starring Mia Wasikowska in 2014. Esteemed film auteur Rolf de Heer will join UWRF following a ‘standing ovation’ of his latest film Charlie’s Country in Cannes.

American-in-exile and poet Kosal Khiev will speak about surviving the prison system, while writer Kate Holden will share how she has survived a heroin addiction and life as a prostitute.

From Indonesia the festival will welcome pioneering publisher and founder of Tempo magazine Goenawan Mohamad, architect Made Wijaya, Islamist intellectual Azyumardi Azra, well-regarded ARMA gallerist Agung Rai, indie rock artist Made Bayak Muliana and award-winning documentary maker Dwitra J Ariana.

Early Bird 4-DAY PASSES are now available to purchase with saving of 20% available until July 31.

4-DAY Passes are valid for the 4 days of Main Program events (including panels, in-conversations, discussions, talks and more), from 2 – 5 October.

Fire Sale
Fire Decimates Siririt Traditional Market in North Bali

For the second time in recent history, the Siririt traditional market in north Bali was ravaged by a fire hat started at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 3, 2014.

A similar fire destroyed large areas of the same market in 2003.

The most recent fire appears to have started on the second floor of the market and quickly spread within the short span of 30-minutes to the fare corners of the market.

According to Radar Bali (Jawa Post), one trader told of seeing the fire grow and spread over a large area in only ten minutes.

Seven fire trucks were dispatched from the Siririt, Singaraja and Kubutambahan Fire Stations. Despite pumping 30 tanks of water onto the scene, the fire still raged two hours after its start.

Efforts by firefighters to extinguish the flames were hampered in part by traders rushing in and out of the fire scene trying to salvage goods and merchandise from their shops. Access to the fire scene by emergency vehicles was also impeded by thousands of spectators who thronged to the scene.

Police and Fire Officials estimate that as many as 1,500 traders’ stall were destroyed in the fire threatening the livelihood of as may as 3,000 people.

Local government administrators estimate the Siririt market prior to the fire had a daily turnover in sales of Rp. 450 million.


Delayed Arrival

Radar Bali reports that the ferry was unstable and overloaded when departing Ketapang, with the ship listing badly to starboard. The listing of the ship reportedly worsened as the short voyage across the straits proceeded.

When the ship was only 150 meters from its Bali landing point at Gilimanuk, at approximately 11:00 p.m., the ship seemed to be in danger of tipping over, resulting in a a general panic on board the ship as passengers and crew sought to save themselves.

Passengers evacuated the ship, boarding another nearby vessel, before it sank at approximately 11:15 p.m.

The cause of the sinking continuing while plans are developed to refloat the shipm now sitting on sea bottom at a 35 degree angle and still visible from the shore line.

The “official” holiday period in terms of peak airline demand runs from July 12 – August 5, 2014.

According to Bisnis Bali, six airlines have asked permission from the Bali airport authority to be allowed to operate additional flights over the holiday period.
  • Cathay Pacific has asked to add eight flights with a total of 2,488 seats on flights between Hong Kong and Bali.
  • Lion Air is seeking to add 68 flights with a total of 14,629 seats on its Jakarta-Bali sector.

Where the Boys Are
Man Arrested for Trying to Coerce Money From Russian Tourists After Transvestite Massage

Ismail Marzuki, a 24-year old member of a local gang in Bali and reportedly working as a gigolo for a transvestite masseur in Kuta, has been detained by police after threatening a Russian tourist with a switchblade.

NusaBali reports that Ismail was arrested on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at 4:40 a.m. at the Hotel Komala Indah in Kuta.

The arrest was preceded by a report given to the police by I Ketut Wicana, a hotel employee, who heard screams coming from room 204 occupied by a Russian tourist, Aleksander Dedenko.

When Wicana checked the source of the commotion he saw the Russian being threatened by a switchblade held by Ismail who was also threatening to strike Dedenko with a hard object.

Police were summoned to the scene and took Ismail - a member of a local gang (Ormas), into custody and seized his weapons as evidence.

M. Ismail, the man arrested by police, was reportedly demanding additional money from the Russian who had just received a massage from a transvestite who asked Ismail’s assistance to obtain the additional payment for services rendered to the Russian.

Police say Ismail Marzuki now faces the possibility of 2 years in prison trying to coerce money from the Russian via a threat of violence.

The Fools on the Hill
Bangli Officials Claim they are Unable to Stop Illegal Parking Operations at Kintamani Blamed for Traffic Jams

NusaBali reports that illegal fees are being demanded from visitors to the Kintamani volcano that tourism authorities appear helpless to stop.

Visitors to Penelokan, the community that sits on the ridge of the ancient caldera overlooking Mount Batur and Lake Batur, are stopped and required to pay an "official" admission fee levied by the Bangli regency that is supposed to be the only retribution required by tourist visitors.

According to press reports, “no parking” and “no stopping” signs along the busy roadway are ignored, with unlicensed and non-uniformed local parking attendants facilitating parking in these area that often causes traffic congestion and delays.

The parking attendants charge fees but do not issue formal parking tickets to those paying for their services.

It is unclear if these parking attendants are enterprising “free lancers” or have been designated by surrounding villages as a way of gathering revenues.

Bangli officials insist these attendants have not granted permission to operate their illegal parking operations andalso plead that they have been unable to apprehend the perpetrators.

In further defense of their inability to enforce the rules, Bangli officials also claim that the right to take steps against the illegal parking fee collectors rests not with their office but with the police.
 


It’s Nice to Share
Time Running Out for Merpati Nusantara to Restructure Debts to Shares

NusaBali reports that the now-grounded PT Merpati Nusantara Airline (MZ) will not fly again unless its outstanding loans are converted to shares.

According to Dahlan Iskan, the Minister of State-owned Enterprises (BUMN), the government would be wasting its time if it injected funds into MZ if its debt was not first converted to shares.

Clarifying his position, Dahlan added, “For instance, restructuring funds of Rp. 200-400 billion will only allow the airline to fly for a month, and then be grounded again.”

Dahlan says no restructuring fund will be released to MZ when it is still heavily burdened with debt. As a result, Dahlan has asked the commission supervising BUMN at the House of Representatives (DPR) to understand MZ’s current financial position and quickly pave the way for a restructuring of the airline’s debt in order they can resume flight operations.

Through January 2013, Merpati’s debt totaled Rp. 7.6 trillion.

The airline ceased operations in February due to severe cash shortages.

In order for the desired conversion of debt to shares to take place, the Airline’s creditors must agree to the scheme and permission must be given beforehand by the finance commission of the DPR.

Dahlan contends that when the Airline’s debt is converted to shares the balance sheet of Merpati can become positive as its debt will disappear, clearing the way for loans and new investors.

Separately, the CEO of Merpati, Asep Ekanugeraha, cautioned that the conversion of debt to shares must be done soon because the flight operating certificate of the Airline will expire in February 2015. Failure to begin flight operations again before that deadline will cause the Ministry of Transportation to declare the now frozen operating certificates irrevocably suspended.

These fees appear to be in contradiction to Government Regulation Number 45 of 2014 that sets the price for the storage of human remains at a government hospital at Rp. 350,000 a day – with no distinction made in the official tariff between the remains of locals and foreigners.

Keeping Indonesia's Hotels ‘in the Game’
Hotel Link Solutions Indonesia Wins Award for Help Local Hotels Get a Larger Share of the On-Line Booking Market

Established in mid-2013, the Indonesia Hotel Link Solutions team has been acknowledged as the best international sales force for Q2 2014 and Indonesian team member Joe Yonathan in Bali winning honors as the best salesman internationally.

Chandra Himawan, Manager of Hotel Link Solutions Indonesia, ascribes the success of his Indonesian team  to the fast growing list of Indonesian accommodation providers experiencing a surge of on-line bookings, both direct and via on-line travel agents (OTAs), after signing on to the Hotel Links Solutions  program.

"It is emotionally rewarding for myself and the rest of the members of the Hotel Link Solutions-Indonesia team when, in just a matter of weeks, we develop world-class web sites and fully functional booking widgets that create large streams of significant revenue for small and medium-sized hotels," explained Chandra.

While almost all hotels and villas have some sort of website, Chandra says many Indonesian hotels and villas have failed to advance with the times, displaying sites anchored in the on line practices of 5-10 years ago, using sites and technology that has failed to advance with the rapidly changing profile of on-line customers and on-line purchasing behavior.

Careful studies of on-line consumer behavior have removed the guesswork from designing hotel and villa sites and booking engines able to generate significant Internet sales.

According to Chandra, in order to be successful, accommodation websites must, among other things, be:
  • Androgynous - Because of the global shift from traditional desktop computers to mobile devices, accommodation websites must display attractively on both a standard computer and on handheld devices.
  • Fast Loading and Attractive - Websites must load quickly or risk losing visitors before a sales dialogue can even commence.
  • Continuously Reviewed and Evaluated - Websites must undergo regular detailed analysis using a range of analytic tools available to measure how visitors interact with the information presented.
  • Be Equipped with a Sophisticated Booking Engine - The standard "contact us" form where customers write and send their requirements that can be responded to later by the hotel are relics of the "old" Internet. Today's shoppers want immediate access to a competitive price be able to instantly book, confirm and pay for their accommodation. Today, hotel bookings are often made just minutes after a traveler has booked and paid for their air travel on an airline site. As a result, successful hotel and villa websites must permit immediate on-line booking, automatic payment and instant confirmation.
Hotel Link Solutions Indonesia approach to digital marketing provides all this and more. Their websites and booking engines (widgets) empower small and medium sized hotel operators to compete with the sophisticated on-line presence of  large international chain hotels.

These websites and booking engines also allow instantaneous rate changes and the launching of special offers to a worldwide network of OTAs.

These solutions offered by Hotel Link Solutions Indonesia  are affordable, effective and can be put in place producing new sales stream within the space of a few days. 

Working with OTAs

Working with OTAs is an important part of the digital marketing mix for successful hotel and villa operations. Hotel Link Solutions helps its clients pick “the best match” from among more than 50 leading OTAs and, following the best practice of major hotel brands, develops strategies to maximize the number of direct bookings flowing through a website.
