BALI UPDATE #1038 - 25 July 2016


Disembarking Drunks in Paradise
Jetstar Flight from Sydney to Phuket Diverts to Bali to Off-Load 6 Men Involved in a Drunken Brawl

tar is reported to considering seeking restitution for aircraft cost, landing fees and fuel from the six men, an amount that could easily run into the tens of thousands of dollars.

Similar incidents in the past have seen Qantas and Jetstar win compensation from misbehaving passengers and also a 10-years ban on flying with the affected airline.

All six men were deported from Indonesia and placed on flights back to Australia under close guard by Airline security officials.

It remains unclear if the Australian Federal Police would charge any or all of the men with crimes in connection with their in-flight altercation.

In Indonesia, the six men told representatives of the Ngurah Rai Airport Authority that they were drunk at the time of the fight.

Passengers on board the flight told of a violent fight in which a bottle of duty-free cognac was smashed, passengers became terrified and blood resulting from the altercation was splattered across the aircraft’s interiors.

Police Increase Security in Bali Following Killing of Two Indonesian Terrorists in Central Sulawesi

A raid carried out by members of the Indonesian Police and the Indonesian Armed Forces that resulted in the shooting death of most-wanted Indonesian terrorist Santoso, also known as Abu Wardah, has prompted heightened security measures to be put in place by the Provincial Police of Bali to minimize the chance of any backlash or retaliation by terrorist elements.

Police Brigadier General Nyoman Suryasta of the Bali Police, quoted by Kompas, said: “We will continue to protect our province. (Even) before Santoso was caught, security measures were in place. In Bali, security is a priority.”

Suryasta said special attention is being given by the police to the entrances to Bali, such as seaports and airports.

Saying the police were using every means of defense at their disposal, Suryasta shared that police were also deployed at every gateway to Bali, major tourist attractions and busy areas frequented by tourists.

He concluded by saying the police were involved in preventative, pre-emptive and enforcement policing - including surprise raids and roadside checks.

Santoso, the leader and founder of the East Indonesia Mujahidin (MIT), and one of his lieutenants, Muchtar, were killed on Monday, July 18th in a military operation codenamed “Tinombala” conducted by members of the elite para-military Alpha 29 force near Poso, Central Sulawesi.

Santoso was involved in the shooting of an Indonesian policeman in 2011 at a Bank in Palu, Sulawesi.

Since then, he has led terror training sessions in the jungles of Poso and Morowali for terror recruits from Sulawesi, Java, Kalimantan and West Nusa Tenggara.

Police reports that Santoso and Muchtar’s identities have been confirmed via DNA testing performed on their corpses.

Misguided Chinese
Illegal and Unlicensed Chinese Guides Protested by the Association of Indonesian Travel Agents

The Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA) is complaining to Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika about the large number of unlicensed tour guides from China working illegally as travel agents on the Island.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the chairman of ASITA, Asnawi Bahar said in Bali on Wednesday, July 20, 2016: “It is very much regretted that they (the illegal Chinese guards) are selling very low-priced travel packets and forcing tourists to shop at their stores. They do this (force people to shop at their stores) in order to make up for the below market price of their travel packets.”

Asnawi said the manner in which the illegal Chinese guides conduct their business causes losses to local businesses through unfair price competition. Because of this, he called on the Provincial Government of Bali to take firm action and create regulations that clarify and control the situation.

Asnawi said Bali must take firm steps in keeping with its role as the national barometer for the Indonesian tourism industry.

ASITA has formed a committee including Professor Pitana from the Tourism Ministry, held meetings with the Chinese Association of Chinese Travel Agents and visited the Chinese Consulate General in Bali.

In response, Governor Pastika has promised to take action in response to the complaints, particularly as regards drafting legislation to control the activities of illegal tour guides.

Pastika also said he would be raising the problem of illegal tour guides with the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, specifically for action to be taken by the Director General of Immigration.

During the meeting with the Chinese Consulate General, ASITA was told that written and spoken Mandarin Chinese in use at tourist attractions in Bali was below standard.

The Consulate General of China also raised concerns about the growing popularity of the Falun Gong movement in Bali, with Beijing concerned that the movement discredits the PRC government.

Buleleng Legislative Committee Opposed to ‘Bali Crossing’ High Voltage Transit Between Bali and Java

Commission II of the Buleleng House of Representatives (DPRD-Buleleng) has declared its opposition to the construction of the “Bali Crossing” - a proposed high-voltage transmission line stretching between Java and Bali, that pundits claim will be the highest electrical transmission line in the world.

As reported by, the chairman of Commission II, Putu Mangku Budiasa, said the high power lines carrying electricity from Java should not be constructed because Bali wishes to be self-sufficient in its power supply.

Budiasa made the statement on Friday, July 22, 2016, saying it would be preferred for Bali to develop its own local energy resources.

He cited the new power plants in Pesanggaran and Buleleng, and the coal-powered power plant at Celukan Bawang in North Bali. The Bali lawmaker called for the development of Phase II of the Celukan Bawang power production scheme that would expand its power production capabilities.

“Bali must be self-sufficient in energy and not be dependent on power supplies from Java to Bali. It’s pointless if Bali has power generating plants that it does not maximize their use,” added Budiasa.

“We have pushed for the development of phase II of the PLTU Celukan Bawang instead of erecting the power lines connecting Java and Bali,” said Budiasa.

The building of the proposed “Bali Crossing” is still in its planning stage.

Reports that thefoundations of the giant supporting tower on the Bali side would transgress the sacred grounds of the Segera Pupek Temple at the West Bali National Park have caused religious elements in Bali to voice opposition to the plan.

When Boarding Houses Hoard Tax Revenues
Badung Regency in Bali to Make Boarding Houses Pay Their Fare Share of Taxes

The large number of boarding houses founf in the Badung Regency that are increasingly used by visiting tourists, was a hot topic in hearings when the Regent of Badung Nyoman Giri Prasta appeared at the Badung House of Representatives on Wednesday, July 21, 2016.

Giri Prasta admitted before the regency’s legislature that his office would continue to pursue every possible channel of revenue in order to fund Badung’s development. Included among these is tax revenues from boarding houses that, in his opinion, are currently an area of lost tax revenues.

The Badung Regent said that tourists who choose to stay in boarding houses inflicted substantial damages on the Regency. Tourists using such accommodation also cause the occupancy rates of tourist hotels to decline.

Giri Prasta said those staying in boarding houses avoid paying service charges and generally damage Bali tourism. He calculated that if someone pays only Rp. 3 million for a one month stay in a boarding house (kos), they end up spending only Rp. 100,000 a day or an amount less than US$10 on accommodation.

“Visitors who stay in a ‘kos’ cause losses in income for Badung. We need to chase this (source of revenue). If a visitor stays in a hotel they must pay tax and service,” he explained.

Giri Prasta called on tourists coming to Bali to use hotels and villas licensed by the regency for their use. He said the Regency would soon survey the number of boarding houses operating in the regency. The top administrator told the legislature that if Badung manages to optimize all the potential sources of tax revenue his government would see annual funding of Rp. 5 trillion - an amount needed to fund infrastructure and development plans in the Regency.

Peddling Junk to Bali’s Top Man
Governor Pastika Complains that Drug Dealers Once Tried to Sell Him Narcotics While Walking in Kuta, Bali

As reported by, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika shared that he was once offered narcotics by a man while walking on the streets who did not recognize him as a former provincial police chief, former head of the national anti-narcotics agency (BNN) and Governor of Bali. Pastika told the press on Friday, July 22,2016, that the narcotics offer happened while he was strolling in Legian, when a drug dealer made the approach.

“I was once walking in Legian when I was offered narcotics. Apparently, the dealer came from the nearby village and didn’t realize whom he was talking to. I was very saddened to see this,” said Pastika.

Continuing, the Governor said: “Truthfully, this happened when I was walking in Kuta and Legian. Maybe they didn’t recognize me. I don't know what kind of drugs he was selling. This is the truth. I am not making this up.”

He went on to explain that Bali was no longer merely a transit point for the illegal drug trade, but has now become a production and marketing center for narcotics. He said current statistics show the narcotics use in Bali is now above 2%. Because of this, Pastika says Bali is in the midst of a "narcotics emergency."

Pastika said that the 61,000 drug users in Bali estimated by the National Anti-narcotics Agency (BNN) is just the top of the iceberg. That number, insists the Governor, reflects only those that have been arrested and are being rehabilitated. The actual number using drugs in Bali could be a number 3 times that amount. Pastika also said that figures provided from Bali’s Kerobokan Prison reveal that more than 70% of those housed in the prison are narcotics users.

Speaking openly about one aspect of narcotics use in Bali, Pastika said: “In the beginning thye may have been arrested for possession a single stick of marijuana. They are processed by the police and sentenced to prison for perhaps one year. When they return from prison they are already addicts and using intravenous drugs.”

Underlining the need to prevent drug use and enforce anti-narcotics laws, Pastika called on all parents to join the war on drugs. Saying narcotics use is a “living hell,” Pastika asked parents to save their children from falling into the hellish pit of drug abuse.

Governor Pastika said he would re-establish a special team he first established when he headed BNN in Jakarta that would commit to saving someone every day from falling victim to narcotics use.

Dancing on Paper
Lines of Pleasure – an Exhibition of Drawings by Noella Roos at VIN+ Seminyak: August 26 – September 31, 2016

An exhibition of 13 large-scale drawings by Dutch artist Noella Roos focusing on dancers will be on display at VIN+ in Seminyak, Bali August 26 – September 31, 2016.

Roos, who works from a studio in Sanur, Bali, describes the drawings in her current exhibition as having a sensual element, explaining: “My work is not sexual but I work with dancers, body’s, feelings and emotion in a two-dimensional space. It’s a combination from a person’s feelings and emptiness, space. My exhibition are lines, drawing and paintings that are left over from my studio work, where I work with a lot of pleasure. I try to capture liveliness, no photo-realism because life is more than only seeing but also feeling.”

Roos says she prefers to focus on dancers as the subject of her art, adding: “Dancers are moving, and moving makes a drawing alive. I don’t work with posing model because they are fixed ideas, not feelings. I have no fixed concept when I start to work, but during the working process, I start to meet the dancer. Is he happy, depressed, in love or just lost his love? Dancers express that in their dance and I use that energy in my drawing. I draw almost every day 4 hours as quick as the dancer dances. I like to meet the dancer without words. We do this through a strong connection, a kind of trance.”

ng, she explains the specific challenges when working with male or female dancers as her subject: “Female dancers are most of the time much softer and dance rounder. But that does not apply to the gay male dancer I work with now. He is more female than my female dancers. With a male dancer, you can also work on seduction and attraction because I am a female. I also like to work with a male dancer because I found it nice to work on the soft side of a male body: Not the macho man, but the Jesus who is falling from the cross. In art history there are hardly any female artists painting male bodies in a sensual way. I found it very beautiful to see a male dancer dance in his insecurities and in his pain of losing a girlfriend. A man often is a symbol of strength but they are as strong as they are soft. Everyone has two sides. With females, I like to work on their strong side. For this exhibition I present only men and one women drawing.”

ies any strict separation from modern or classical art. “My concept is very simple: it’s a working process between artists: dancers, a musician, and a drawer. In my work, while I draw I meet the other artists and use this energy on my paper. I see this as Pina Bausch who made dance performances from/by the dancers, not for the dancers, like a ballet. What I literally add to modern art is my female side to draw a man in a sensual way. Men have drawn females very sensually. In art, I don’t know many female artists who draw sensual men. The most sensual drawings from men are made by gay artists."

A resident of Asia for the past 15 years, Noella Roos has lived in Sri Lanka, Vietnam and currently resides in Bali, Indonesia where she creates and teaches painting.

held solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, The Netherlands, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Korea, Indonesia, and India. She has joined group exhibitions in London, Belgium and The Netherlands.

Bali Benoa Reclamation Still in Play
Location Permit Extended Automatically for Benoa Bay Reclamation Pending Review of Environmental Impact Study

Indonesia’s Minister of the Seas and Fisheries (MKP), Susi Pudjiastuti, has explained that it is not her responsibility to extend the location permit for the controversial Benoa Bay reclamation project operated by PT Tirta Wahana Bali Internasional (TWBI).

Without Cabinet-level or Presidential intervention to end the project that has been the object of almost weekly protests in Bali, the location permit held by TWBI was automatically extended under the terms of President Decree Number 51 of 2014.

As reported by, Pudjiastuti warned on Monday, July 18, 2016, that even if the location permit were automatically extended that does not mean that the final permit for the reclamation project will be issued.

She explained that a location permit (izin lokasi) is different from the final permit to undertake the reclamation (izin pelaksanaan). The permit to actually undertake the reclamation can only be issued, according to the Minister, if the final environmental impact study (AMDAL) has been approved and the project conclusively shown to cause no damage to the environment.

Minister Pudjiastuti said that she is waiting for the environmental impact study (AMDAL) that she promises will be reviewed in an impartial and fair manner.

An Airport Too Inviting
Confusion Reigns Over Rumors of Premature Invitations Issued for Cornerstone Ceremony for North Bali Airport

Confusion reigns surrounding reports that the cornerstone will soon be laid for a proposed floating airport in Kubutambahan. North Bali. As reported by NusaBali, such a ceremony would seem out of sequence and premature for a project that has yet to prepare the required feasibility study for presentation to candidate investors.

According to NusaBali, invitations to the ceremony are being given to village chiefs in two sub-districts of East Buleleng – Kubutambahan and Tejakula.

The invitation are reportedly being sent in the name of a company calling itself PT Bandara Internasional Bali Utara (BIBU) Panju Sakti. The invitations were said to be signed by I Made Mangku, a member of the consulting team from Canadian consulting company – Kenesis Consulting (AKC) who are promoting the construction of an airport on an man-made off-shore island and near Kubutambahan, North Bali.

The invitation now being circulated request community chiefs to attend a “socialization of the plans” for the North Bali Airport on July 24, 2016.

Strangely, these invitations dated July 17, 2016, fail to mention where exactly the “socialization ceremony” would be held at Kubutambahan.

Another report now says the cornerstone will be laid on August 28, 2016.

The Buleleng House of Representatives - DPRD Buleleng says they have been confused by the rumored invitation for the cornerstone installation for the new “floating” airport. The chairman of Commission II of the DPRD-Buleleng, Putu Mangku Budiasa, commented: “I am surprised. The feasibility study is not clear; is it done yet or not? But there’s already a cornerstone ceremony?”

Budiasa said that, as far as he knows, the investor from AKC only holds a recommendation letter to proceed with a feasibility study for the Airport.

The Regent of Buleleng
issued the recommendation to AKC.

And, to the best of Budiasa’s knowledge, AKC has yet to share the results of any feasibility study with the Buleleng Regency or the DPRD Buleleng. “What’s going on? We don't know the precise results of the feasibility study. What are the coordinates for the airport? Is it viable or not? And what are the plans like? But, here we are (already) laying the cornerstone for the project. Many are asking me what's going on?” said the PDIP legislator from Buleleng.

Similarly, the chairman of the DPRD Buleleng, Gede Supriatna, said he was aware of the rumor of the planned placement of a cornerstone for the new Airport of the North in Buleleng, but was unaware regarding any specific details on the project. Adding: “I, too, am surprised. There’s already news of the cornerstone ceremony but there is no coordination at all related to the project. At the very least, there should be a presentation of the feasibility study of the project to the regency administration of Buleleng. I have asked the executive, and indeed there has been no coordination.”

According to Supriatna, the development of the airport has a number of strict specified stages that must be followed, beginning with planning, pre-construction, construction and actual operational. In other words, before any cornerstone can be installed, we first must complete the planning and pre-construction phases.”

Continuing, the chief of the DPRD-Buleleng, said: “If there is now the rumor of the installation of the cornerstone, that means construction has begun. Moreover, this means the planning and pre-construction phases are done! But, in fact, I know nothing about this.”

Supriatna said he is concerned that if the installation of the cornerstone does not go ahead, the Regency of Buleleng will be accused of failing to support and delaying the airport project. But, in fact, the regency administration of Buleleng is very supportive of the Floating Airport Project and wishes it to become operation as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, adding to the confusion, Governor Made Mangku Pastika is insisting there are no immediate plans for the installation of a cornerstone for the Floating Airport Project. The Governor said that the realization of the North Bali Airport Project is still something for a time in the distant future. The Governor admits there are many obstacles yet to be overcome before the proposed airport becomes a reality.

Governor Pastika emphasized that only the recommendation for the location of the new airport has been processed. After that, there still needs to undertake a detailed feasibility study and then a permit from the Central Government to be issued. At that point, there is still a requirement for an environmental impact study (AMDAL). Governor Pastika asked: "After there is an AMDAL, who will build the airport? Where is the money coming from? This is not clear. What’s more, there will be ebbs and flow in the process to develop the Buleleng Airport. 2-5 years in the future; there is still no guarantee that it will happen.”

Continuing to express his doubts on the imminent laying of a cornerstone in Buleleng, Pastika reminded that the project requires reclamation and an investor. Adding: “At this time the people of Bali are allergic to outside investors. Every project with an investor is refused. If investors are going to be refused, it will be difficult to develop. For example, the reclamation of Benoa Bay is always tied to me.”

The Provincial Spokesman for Bali, Dewa Gede Mahendra Putra, confirmed there are no plans on behalf of the Provincial Government to attend the laying of a cornerstone for the airport. “Maybe it was the plan of the Regent of Buleleng? If the invitation is in the name of the Province of Bali, there is no such invitation. If the Governor of Bali issued the invitation, usually there is a formal invitation. I've checked. There isn’t such an invitation,” said Mahendra.

Whitton’s Whippin
Australian Teen Beaten Savagely by Ojek Driver in Kuta, Bali After Refusing Transport Services

An angry ojek (motorcycle taxi) driver in Kuta brutally attacked an 18-year-old Australian tourist on Saturday night, July 16, 2016.

Ojek driver Made Purna (19) of Kuta was reportedly unhappy when Australian Mitchell Whitton (18), after an evening at Paddy’s Club, refused the offer of a ride as he passed by the front of the Hotel Kuta Bex, in Kuta Bali.

Purna, unhappy with either the refusal or the way in which Whitton delivered it, began to beat the young Australian. Unsatisfied, the Balinese ojek driver then found a piece of wood and continued to beat the Australian about the head, causing numerous cuts and abrasions in the process.

After seeking medical attention, Whitton reported the attack to the police who arrested Purna a short time later.

Radar Bali reports that Purna did not deny the attack prompted with his frustration with Whitton’s refusal to use his motorcycle taxi service.

Illegal in Plain Sight
Local Transport Drivers Enraged Over Billboards Advertising Illegal Online Transport Services

Although expressly forbidden to operate by Bali’s Governor, Grab Taxi apparently continues to operate openly in the Island’s capital and is even openly advertising their service on large street side billboards.

As reported by, the secretary of an Alliance of Local Transport Providers, Nyoman Kantun Murhana, claims such advertisements show the Ministry of Transportation to be impotent and ineffective, adding on Monday, July 18, 2016: “We are deeply saddened that there are billboards for Grab Taxi to be found in several areas. Moreover, it’s strange that there is one billboard even near the airport. What’s going on with our government?”

Kantun said his Alliance was initially  comforted when the provincial government took a public position supporting local traditional drivers. But, he complained that such pronouncements must be backed up by stern enforcement measures. He said that UBER, GoCar and Grab Taxi continue to operate in Bali despite being declared illegal by the Governor and the local transportation office.

Continuing, Kantun said: “If we the regulations are bold (enough), then enforce them so they cannot be ignored. Make sure advertisements for these services are torn down. Earlier (the advertisements) were removed, but they come back and (Grab Taxi) are brave enough to put them back up. This will provoke a response because the Grab application has been outlawed. We wait to see that the Transportation Office will do. We protest these advertisements.”

Local drivers are also bitterly complaining about licensing collusion between online transportation operators and the local mass transit organization Organda.

When tried to question the head of Bali’s Transportation Office, Ir. Ketut Artika, for comment about billboards advertising illegal online transportation services, Artika was evasive. Artika said he had received no reports regarding the billboards promoting a service the Governor has outlawed.

“Thanks for the information. I will coordinate with the appropriate agencies to come up with a strategy,” said Artika.

One Moment in Time
MOMENTS – An Exhibition of Photography by Michael Johnsey July 29- August 11, 2016

Bali-based British photographer Michael Johnsey is holding an exhibition entitled “Moments” from July 29 – August 11, 2016, in Canggu, Bali.

Johnsey’s passion for photography began in his teens when, camera in hand, he wandered the streets and great parks of London honing simultaneously his love of photography and skill at capturing “moments” on film.

in Indonesia some years later opened up a whole new exciting world of sights and scenes to be captured by Johnsey. Only returning to study photography on a tertiary level in his 40s, Johnsey today dedicates himself full-time to photography.

Michael spends his time in amongst people recording everyday events and capturing moments that can be easily missed. He believes that a good picture is not necessarily just about being technically correct - it has a soul, tells a story and reveals a personality, mood, or situation.

As Johnsey sees it: A good picture is honest

ent exhibition seeks to capture the soul of life in Indonesia. This collection of photographic prints celebrates a country of great beauty and its diverse people. These are pictures of ordinary people leading ordinary lives in moments of labor, rest, play and prayer.

Michael’s pictures have been exhibited widely in the UK and Asia.

Beyond Bali: Sumba Hospitality Foundation Inaugurate East Nusa Tenggara’s First Hotel School in West Sumba

The Regent of West Sumba Markus Dario Talu, and former Regent of West Sumba and current chief of the Health Service of East Nusa Tenggara Kodi Mete, jointly officiated at the inauguration of a new international hotel school operated by the Sumba Hospitality Foundation in Karuni, Loura, West Sumba on Friday, July 22, 2016.

Both men shared the inauguration responsibilities for the school at the request of the Governor of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), Frans Leburaya who asked the two men to represent him on an important day in the development of the Island of Sumba.

With the inauguration and placement of a commemorative marker, The Sumba Hospitality Foundation now operates the first international standard hotel school in both Sumba and all of East Nusa Tenggara.

In a written address by Governor Leburaya that was read by Regent Markus Dairo Talu, the Governor expressed his strong appreciation on behalf of the people of East Nusa Tenggara to the Sumba Hospitality Foundation for building an international standard hotel school in West Sumba.

r profit organization, The Sumba Hospitality Foundation seeks to provide a one-year free-of-charge quality education to 40 talented Sumbanese men and woman that will lead to viable employment that will help break the cycle of generational poverty that is a fact-of-life for many people in Sumba.

20 young men and women between the ages of 17 and 23 years now live on an environmentally sustainable campus where they are undertaking an intensive study in sustainable hospitality management.

The Sumba Hospitality Foundation now runs a self-sufficient hospitality school on the island of Sumba that will provide vocational education. The students receive full boarding and medical care during the year-long study program that provides instruction in English, Indonesian, computer skills, general life skills, farming and specialized hospitality skills in one of 4 areas: Housekeeping, Restaurant Service, Culinary or Front Office.

cal courses are combined with on-the-job training at the in-house hotel facilities of the foundation. Also included in this one-year program is an internship at a four or five star hotel in Indonesia.

The school’s founder and chief benefactor is the visionary Inge De Lathauwer who serves as chairman of the Board of Trustees. A Belgium national who is passionate about Asia, she is a graduate from the University in Ghent with a Masters in Asian Studies. She continued her education in Glion where she obtained the diploma in Hotel Management.

After undertaking a program in hospital management training in Singapore, she returned to Belgium where she became active in several charities.

In the words of the School's founder: “It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

Governor Frans Lebu Raya called on the Sumba Hospitality Foundation to always prioritize quality of education in order to produce young people of outstanding character who are both innovative and productive -  able to compete in the international marketplace.

Going Ape on Your Birthday
Niluh the Orangutan Invites 55 Children to Celebrate Her Birthday and National Children’s Day at the Bali Safari Marine Park

This year, Bali Safari & Marine Park marked its annual commemoration of National Children’s Day with a difference. The day dedicated especially to kids was, coincidentally, also the birthday of a much-loved and attractive member of the Bali Safari and Marine Park’s family – Niluh, an orangutan, who just turned 8 years old.

Niluh – very much a kid in her own right – invited 55 children from the Al Ittihad Rasyid Wa Habib Orphanage to join her birthday celebration and partake in a fun-filled day at the Park.

Niluh revealed her remarkable skills as a party host by opening the many wondrous attractions in 40-hectare party to the visiting children on her birthday. The excited brood of kids climbed aboard special caravans that went on a mesmerizing motorized Safari Journey – traveling through large enclosures that are home to animals from Indonesia, India and Africa. At Niluh’s insistence, the children also enjoyed an informative and inspirational visit to the elephant and tiger shows, watched the collossal stage performance at the Bali Agung Show and were set free to try the many thrilling rides located in the Park’s Fun Zone.

No birthday party can be considered complete without sharing a traditional birthday cake - this one made to Niluh’s recipe by Park team members and comprised of a wide range of fresh tropical fruits.

Niluh, who is part of the internationally recognized rare species breeding program at the Bali Safari and Marine Park, was born on July 13, 2008, to her proud parents, mother Mega and father Joni. With orangutans living from 35-45 years, Niluh is still very much considered a juvenile and lives “at home” with her parents where each day they meet and greet thousands of Park visitors.

Orangutans, like their human counterparts, possess distinct individual personalities. Niluh is considered both friendly and clever by all who work with her, and can be fiercely protective of all her caretakers at the Park.

after enjoying a portion of Niluh’s birthday cake with her 55 invited friends, William Santoso, General Manager of the Bali Safari and Marine Park, said: “Children survive us and are the next generations charged with the care and conservation of the Planet. What we share and teach them now is the capital upon which they will build a future, better world. That is why the Bali Safari and Marine Park, as a conservation and education center for wild animal species, continues to invite without charge children under the care of local foundations to visit our Park and share our concern for the protection of the natural and animal kingdom. On the most basic level, however, we hope every child who visits the Park enjoys the special kind of memorable fun and enjoyment that only Mother Nature can provide.”

onal Children’s Day is celebrated on different dates in various countries around the world. In Indonesia “Hari Anak Nasional” is marked on July 23rd each year – a day set aside to remember that importance of providing the coming generation with affectionate care, support and security as they develop into future community leaders.

Are you on the Run?
More than 1,500 Participants Expected at Herbalife Bali International Triathlon August 14, 2016

A record number of more than 1,500 athletes from some 30 countries are expected to join the 9th running of the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon to be operated from Mertasari Beach in Sanur.

Panji Buana, the sports manager at Bali Discovery Events for what has been dubbed as the “Triathlon for the Soul” told a press conference in Jakarta on Thursday, July 21, 2016, that the move from Jimbaran Bay to a new home Sanur Beach was at the invitation of the Sanur Village Community in order to create a location for the event that has grown from year-to-year.

“The swimming portion of the event will take place on Mertasari Beach as the sun rises off Bali’s eastern shore. The second phase of the triathlon – the bicycle race will cover a course that includes the Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai and Serangan Island. The final phase of a foot race will take place through the streets of Sanur," said Panji.

Both an Olympic distance triathlon and a shorter, sprint distance triathlon, will be held. The Olympic distance race is comprised of a 1.5-kilometer ocean swim, a 40-kilometer bike race, and a 10-kilometer road race. The Sprint distance event is roughly half these distances. Professional timing of the event will determine winners in categories based on race selected, gender and age group. A 5-kilometer fun run through the streets of Sanur will see hundreds of runners compete for a large number of “lucky draw” prizes including a motorcycle.

Among well-known international and national athletes expected to attend in Bali are Jauhari Johan, Andi Wibowo, Richard Sam Bera and Robin Mitchell.

Ensuring the safety and smooth operation of the 2016 Herbalife Bali International Triathlon are hundreds of police personnel, local community guards (pacalang), volunteers, lifeguards and race officials.

Speaking at the Jakarta press conference on behalf of the Indonesian Triathlon Federation was former Olympic athlete Richard Sam Bera who declared the 9th running of the Herbalife Bali International Triathlon as an important part in the preparation of national athletes on the road to the 2017 Southeast Asian Games and 2018 Asian Games.

Continuing, Sam Bera said: “In the past, the Bali Triathlon Event has had little involvement with the Indonesian Triathlon Federation (FTI). In the future, we (FTI) will embrace triathlon events in Indonesia to improve their direction and development. FTI will conduct national triathlon competitions.”

Participants in the race will be welcomed to an opening reception, race briefings, bike blessing, a pre-race high carbohydrate dinner, a full-morning race expo on Sanur beach and a post-race gathering. While title sponsor honors belong to Herbalife Indonesia – the worldwide nutritional organization now found in 90 nations. Bank Mandiri returns in 2016 for the second year as a “Silver Sponsor.”
