Vibrant, Vibrating Start to the Year of the Dog
Moderate Earthquake Startles Chinese New Year Celebrants Across South Bali

At 10;37 am on Friday, February 16, 2018, devotees gathered to offer Chinese New Year prayers at the Kongco Chinese Temple at the top of Tanjung Benoa in Bali were startled by the shaking of an earthquake measuring 4.4 on the Richter Scale with an epicenter in the sea to the Island’s south.

Beritabali.com reports that worshippers at the temple did not panic and flee from the seaside Chinese temple, but, in fact, expressed thanks that the rains that almost invariably mark the celebration of “Imlek” or Chinese New Year were absent this year. Many said the earthquake should be seen as a positive omen and good grace for the coming year.

The chief of the Meteorology, Climate and Geophysics in Denpasar (MKG Wilayah III), Taufik Gunawan, confirmed the strength of the offshore quake at 4.4 SR. Adding the epicenter was located at 9 degrees 14 minutes South Latitudes and 115 degrees 42 minutes West Longitude in the Indian ocean, some 47 kilometers southwest of Klunkung at a depth of 55 kilometers.”

The shake map for the earthquake showed the event was felt in Nusa Dua, Denpasar, and Kuta.

Because of the relatively low intensity of the earthquake, no property damage or injuries were reported in connection with the Chinese New Year's earthquake that emanated from shifting of the Indo-Australian plate against the opposing Eurasian plate. There was no threat of a tsunami from the moderate seismic event.


Preserving Baliís Rich Cultural Legacy
Klungkung Regency Grants Icons of Cultural Heritage Status to the Paintings of Nyoman Gunarsa

The Regency of Klungkung has declared 13 additional compositions by the Balinese painting “Maestro” Nyoman Gunarsa as iconic objects of Cultural Heritage Treasure (Benda Cagar Budaya).

There are now 64 paintings housed in the Gunarsa’s Museum of Contemporary Classical Paintings located in Klungkung that are destined for eventual classification as cultural heritage treasures, with 51 more paintings scheduled for processing and reclassification in 2018. Also included in the Gunarsa collection of art housed at the Museum are shadow puppets, woodcarvings and ancient statuary.

The legendary Balinese painter, I Nyoman Gunarsa, died in Bali on September 10, 2017 at the age of 74. He founded the Museum Seni Lukis Kontemporer in Klungkung in 1989.

The Regent of Klungkung, I Nyoman Suwitra, explained on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, that the elevation of Gunarsa’s paintings to the status of cultural icons is the realization of the late painter’s aspiration voiced during a recent visit by President Joko Widodo to the Klungkung Museum.

The cultural heritage status of the paintings paves the way for funding the ongoing care and safekeeping of Gunarsa’s collection by the Regency. Suwitra added: “I am pushing for the study on the remaining paintings to completed so they can (also) be classed as items of cultural heritage. In the future the museum will be integrated into city tours.”

The Regency also plans to expand its list of cultural heritage objects to include the Kerta Gosa Hall of Justice in Klungkung and the Japanese War Caves (Goa Jepang).

A building at the Governor’s office complex in central Denpasar was consumed by fire on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. The fire took place in Building No. 5 housing the Law Bureau for the Province of Bali.

Governor Made Mangku Pastika quickly arrived at the location that is close to his office. Governor Pastika said the burnt structure was an old building, dismissing any suggestions of sabotage or arson. “The is none of that (sabotage). A fire can happen anywhere, even in our own homes. That building (Building No. 5) is old, I don’t know exactly, but it was built during the term of office of Professor (Ida Bagus) Mantra,” explained Pastika.

The Governor also explained that the burnt out building no longer housed any significant archival material that had long ago been moved to another location.

Despite Government Assurances, Villagers Evacuated from Areas Surrounding Mount Agung Volcano Remain Reluctant to Return to their Homes

The National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) reports that as of February 13, 2018, a total of 15,445 people are officially recorded as "evacuees" from the exclusion zone surrounding the Mount Agung Volcano. The evacuees are currently spread across 146 temporary camps with the government saying it is now safe for al evacuees to return to their homesteads.

The alert status of Mount Agung was lowered from “Level IV” to “Level III” on Saturday, February 10, 2018, reducing the exclusion zone unsafe for human habitation to a radius of 4-kilometers surround the volcano’s crater.

The head of information and Public Relations for BNPB, Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, in a press statement released on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, cited several reasons why evacuees are reluctant to return to their homes, despite government assurances that it was now safe to do so. Among the reasons cited by villages were broken bridges, damaged roads and homes, and limited funds to rework the farmlands abandoned 5 months ago. In addition to these things, there is also a lingering concern that Mount Agung will erupt again as it did in late November 2017.

Beritabali.com reports that Sutopo is calling on the public to remain calm and not worry about a future, large eruption. The BNPB official said that the Volcano always gives advance warning before a major eruption takes place, meaning officials will be able to evacuate local residents to safety should a major eruption be about to take place.

It Ainít Over Until the Fat Lady Sings
Mount Agung Erupts Three Days After Alert Status Lowered.

Just three days after a government’s declaration reducing the warning level on the Mount Agung Volcano from the highest level of “IV” to “III”, the volcano produced another significant eruption on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 11:49 am.

As reported by NusaBali, the eruptions sent a cloud of thick smoke 1,500 meters above the crater and volcanic dust over nearby Banjar Pandan Sari, Desa Dukuh in the Kubu District in Karangasem. Experts monitoring the eruption measured the amplitude at 21mm with a duration of 140 seconds. A separate, simultaneous eruption was measured with an amplitude of 12 mm lasting 20 seconds.

The Thursday eruption was mainly visible only from the villages of Duda, Renang and Muncan due to a heavy cloud cover surrounding the volcano.

The latest event was the second eruption of Mount Agung recorded in 2018, following an eruption on January 2, 2018 that created a dust cloud soaring 1,500 meters above the crater.

Dewa Gede Mertayasa, an expert assigned to the Mount Agung observation post at Rendang, said that future eruptions remain a possibility that may occur unannounced by pre-eruption earthquakes.

Some 15 minutes after the actual eruption fallout from the volcano rained down on Banjar Pandan Sari, located within the 6-kilometer radius of Mount Agung. Observers say the fallout was relatively thin and lasted only a short time.

Despite the most recent eruption, officials have left the alert status at “III” with an exclusion zone of 4-kilometers from the crater still in effect.

Fighting Fire with Fire
Ancient Balinese Fire Fight Ritual of Siat Api Undergoing a Revival in the Village of Duda, Karangasem

Siat Api – an ancient Balinese “firefight” - has been revived in the traditional village of Duda, Selat in the Regency of Karangasem.

The ritual sees groups of bare-chested young men in traditional costumes attack opposing groups striking each other with fiery torches made of dry coconut tree leaves. Intended to neutralize negative forces that may be circulating in the community, Siat Api is believed to impart emotional self-control to those who participate.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the Siat Api ceremony is performed by prior to the Usaba Dodol Ceremony in the Village of Duda in concurrence with the timing of the new moon.

The opposing “forces” in the firefight ferociously attack each other’s bare backs and chest with flaming torches.

The village chief of Duda, I Komang Sujana, explained on Thursday, February 15, 2018, that the Siat Api ritual’s aim is to clean the surrounding areas and restore nature’s balance.

The Siat Api tradition is an ancient practice in the Village of Duda, but ceased to be actively practiced when Mount Agung erupted in 1963. The “firefight” was rejuvenated in 2017 and celebrated again in 2018.


Trailblazing in the Dark
Two Danish Hikers Missing For One Night on Mount Batukaru Discovered Safe and Sound.

Two Danish tourists, identified only as Philip and Ditte, were found safe after going missing while trekking from the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces to Pura Luhur Batukaru.

The couple, who refused the services of an experienced guide, was first reported as missing on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.

Beritabali.com quotes the chief of the Penebel Police Precinct, I Ketut Masta Budaya,who said members of the local community watch (pecalang), law enforcement, and Disaster Mitigation workers were mobilized on a search and managed to discover the two Danes at 2:30 pm on Wednesday. The two had maintained intermittent contact with a driver by handphone and had slept the night in a jungle clearing.

Searchers found the couple at a location about 50 meters from the parking area for Pura Gunung Batukaru. When a medic in the search party declared the two hikers fit, they were allowed to return to their accommodation in Ubud.

The two hikers whose listed their occupation as university students refused the services of a local guide, claiming they were experienced trekkers accustomed to hiking distances of 15-kilometers and were also carrying GPS tracking technology.


Missing at Sea
Search Continues for Missing Bulgarian Tourist in Water Surrounding Nusa Penida

A Bulgarian tourist, Kastadin Zdravkov Kanavrov (41), remains missing at sea after 3 days after undertaking a spearfishing outing on Thursday morning, February 15, 2018.

The tourist last seen in the water surrounding Batu Melawang at Ceningan, Lembongan, Nusa Penida, has been the object of an extensive search by search and rescue workers.

No trace of the man or his body had been found on Saturday, February 17th, leading searchers to believe Kanarvrov may have been swept out to sea by strong ocean currents.

When the man did not resurface, his friends and the local fishing boat commenced a local search, failing to find any trace of the man.

Police were notified and the search for the Bulgarian continues.

Desperate Search for Power
PLN Abandons Suspended High Power Lines and Opts for New Submarine Cables Between Java and Bali

A growing demand for electrical power in Bali has caused the State Power Board (PLN) to urgently commence the long-delayed and controversial construction of the high-voltage Java-Bali Crossing (JBC).

Finance.detik.com quotes the Deputy Manager for alternative Energy at PLN, Dewanto, who said: “The Java-Bali Crossing is progressing as anticipated. If the JBC is not completed, the electrical reserves will be very small, but perhaps not yet in crisis territory. But, if requests for new connections continue to grow, then we may well face a real crisis of electricity shortage. The standard oversupply or reserve of electricity for a specific region is targeted at 30%.

Dewanto made his comment during a discussion on “The Future of New Energy in Bali” held at Kubu Kopi in Denpasar on February 15, 2018.

Dewanto said new sources of electricity are essential to continue to attract investment in Bali. He said a minimum of two years is needed to establish new electrical sources for Bali, with investors sometimes forced to wait unto more power comes online.

PLN says Bali’s current island-wide supply of electricity totals 1,290 megawatts with an effective average capacity of 1,100 megawatts. On the assumption that Bali’s power requirements grow 8.7% per year, then, by 2021, Bali will face a peak power demand of 1,214 megawatts.

“We need power reserves, The planning of PLN for JBC is seen as the most efficient means of increasing power supplies as opposed to building more power generating plants on the Island. Building steam-generated power plants (PLTU) is very expensive, without even discussing problems of locations and environmental concerns," said Dewanto.

PLN says the JBC will eventually provide 2,800 megawatts of additional power supply for Bali,

The JBC project is budgeted to cost Rp. 4.8 trillion needed to construct 514 electrical pylons carrying power from West Situbundo to Banyuwangi before laying a submarine cable to bring power to shores of Bali at Jembrana or Tabanan. The underwater cable will cover a distance of 2.68 kilometers.

Once installed, Bali should have sufficient power on hand to meet projected power demands through 2020.

Apparently, PLN has shelved plans to construct the world’s tallest overhead high voltage lines stretching over the straits between East Java and Bali in favor of submarine cables.

A Nation of Islands; A Nation of Sails
Indonesian Traditional Pinisi Sailing Ships Named Icon of Cultural Heritage

Jakarta Globe carries the news that Indonesian Foreign Minister, Retno Marsudi, has confirmed that on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, the traditional Indonesian sailing boats – pinisi was declared by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as one of the world’s intangible objects of cultural heritage.

The UNESCO certification was delivered to Jakarta by the Indonesian Ambassador to France and UNESCO, Hotmangaradja Pandjaitan, who also serves as ambassador to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

In acknowledging the designation of the pinisi as an item of invaluable cultural heritage, Minister Marsudi said the award would assist Indonesia in promoting and preserving its rich natural culture. Adding: "The recognition of the pinisi boat of South Sulawesi as part of the world's intangible cultural heritage is a big pride for the people of Indonesia. It should be followed by a good preservation policy that includes educational efforts."

The pinisi seagoing vessels entered the Intangible Cultural Heritage List last year, joining other Indonesian icons that include the kris (a traditional Indonesian dagger), wayang (shadow puppets), batik, angklung musical instrument, noken bag from Papua, Saman dance from Aceh, and Balinese dance.

The pinisi (phinisi) is a two-masted sailing vessel originally built almost exclusively by the Buginese of South Sulawesi. Arguably the world’s largest commercial sailing fleet, the pinisi armada still remains the main means of inter-insular transportation and cargo carriage in Indonesia.

The boats can range in lengths between 20 to 35 meters and can weigh 350 tons. Fitted with engines to supplement its set of sails, some of the pinisi fleet are now fitted out as luxury cruise vessels serving international tourists visiting remote regions of the Indonesia archipelago.

Banyuwangi as a New Gateway to Bali
Banyuwangi Ė the Quick Way to Access Baliís West and North, Now Poised to Become International Airport

Banyuwangi’s Airport is on course to become Bali’s de facto second airport as it prepares to become an international airport in 2019.

Indonesia’s Tourism Minister Arief Yahya visited the Blimbingsari Airport in Banyuwangi on Thursday, February 15, 2018, during which he praised the East Java destination as having fulfilled the three main criteria to become a world tourism destination, namely: world class attractions; a complete range of supporting amenities; and increasing ease of access.

As reported by Kompas.com, the Minister of Tourism said that it was likely that Banyuwangi would soon operate direct international flights with Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia.

Yahya also said that Banyuwangi’s role as a landing port and parking area for VIP jets during the October 2018 International Monetary Fund and World Bank meeting in Bali will represent a moment of “great momentum” to introduce Banyuwangi tourism to the world.

Banyuwangi welcomed 497,000 tourists in 2010, rising dramatically to 4.01 million tourists in 2016. International tourist numbers increased from only 5,205 in 2010 to 91,000 in 2017 -  bringing Rp. 546 billion in foreign exchange to the national tourism economy.

M. Awaluddin, the CEO of PT Angkasa Pura II, who manage the Banyuwangi Airport, revealed that discussions and feasibility studies are being carried out in cooperation with the Australian airline Jetstar on possible flight service to Banyuwangi.

Angkasa Pura says Rp. 400 billion is needed to make Banyuwangi an international airport by widening and lengthening the current runway to accommodate larger jets.

Banyuwangi in East Java is only a short ferry ride from the Balinese Port of Gilimanuk and has the potential of improving accessibility by air to West and North Bali.

Hate Two Pieces
Angry Citizens Demand Removal of Hotel Advertisement on Denpasar Ė Gilimanuk Highway.

A sign box installed on the Denpasar – Gilimanuk highway by the Bali Sunset Hotel has provoked sharp rebukes against the hotel and prompted the immediate removal of the sign by civic authorities in Jembrana Regency.

The sign promoting the hotel was installed on the highway near Banjar Banyubiru in Negara showed two attractive women clad in bikinis.

As reported by Jawapos.com, many complained that the signboard violated local standards and should not be displayed along a major highway.

The installation of the sign that took place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, February 15, 2018, immediately precipitated a street side protest by 40 local residents living in areas adjacent to the sign.

The Hotel owner insists the contents were not pornographic and had the needed permits form the Regency of Jembrana. Moreover, the hotel owner said Sign Permit Number: 53/311/SIR/DPMPTSPTK/VI/2017 was valid until July 28, 2018.

Responding to the public outcry, the head of the Public Enforcement Agency for Jembrana, I Gusti Ngurah Rai Budhi, ordered his officers to remove the offending sign in order call an end to a halt the mounting public protest.

The sign was removed and Jembrana authorities have summoned the owner of the Hotel.

Meanwhile, Jembrana officials claim the sign installed on the roadside was not in accordance with the permit issued to the hotel for public advertising.


Canines Who Dine on What You Donít
Hotel in Ubud Recycles Leftover Food to Feed Hungry Bali Dogs

A Balinese dog lover – Pande Nyoman Sarini, has launched a project to feed hungry dogs by recycling food waste from hotels in BALI.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Sarini, also known as Lenny Pande, is a mother of two who saw as a challenge the large amount of edible food being thrown away by hotels that could actually be used to feed dogs in her neighborhood together with the many abandoned dogs on the Island’s streets and beaches.

Commenting on how her idea grew out of attending a reception at a large hotel in Bali, Lenny Pande said: “I was moved by the large amount of leftover food. Not only from my own plate, but also left uneaten by the other guests. I thought about what I could personally do in order the leftover food could be put to good use.”

Already active with a group of friends in efforts to rescue stray dogs and cats in Bali, Lenny joined forces with a group of friends to organize daily pick up of leftover food from hotels for delivery to hungry canines. The food, once sorted, is delivered to a number of feeding stations in Bali’s capital of Denpasar.

Lenny, who publishes a tourist guidebook, explained: “There are several street dogs that I feed every day. On a personal level, I am still able to support them. In a discussion with a media partner Furama Xclusive Villas I was asked for suggestions on annual corporate social responsibility programs,” said Lenny.

Working together with the Furama Xclusive Villas, Lenny helped establish an animal shelter near the villas. Recycled leftovers from the Villas were sent twice a week to the animal shelter.

Lenny Pande, as a native Balinese, praises the food-recycling program citing its consistency with the Bali-Hindu philosophical tenet of Tri Hita Karana that demands balance with nature always be maintained.


Writing it Long, Writing it Clear
Protestors Bring 150-Meter-Long Banner to Governorís Office Rejecting Reclamation of Benoa Bay

An very long banner, measuring some 150-meters long, was unfurled in front of Bali’s Governor Office on Saturday, February 17, 2108. Bearing the message “Refuse Reclamation – Benoa Harbor is on Fire”  the banner was carried by members of the anti-reclamation movement including ForBali and the Association of Traditional Communities Refusing the Reclamation of Benoa Bay (Pasubayan Desa Adat/Pakraman Bali Tolak Reklamasi Teluk Benoa).

Balipost.com reports that the peaceful demonstration, the latest in a long list of mass protests to plans to reclaim Benoa Bay, was marked by spirited orations delivered via a mobile sound truck operated by the protestors.

Speaking first was a representative of ForBALI from the Regency of Gianyar who called on those opposing the reclamation to safeguard their solidarity and consistency in the current election year in Bali. All those attending the demonstration were called upon to protect Benoa Bay from greedy investors.

A representative from Jalak Sidakarya emphasized that the ForBALI movement remains independently led, healthy, and clean of any political control. A spokesperson said: ForBali works to oppose the reclamation of Benoa Harbor because it is right to do so and not because of any financial backing, logistical support or any other outside influence.

A representative living in the Regency of Karangasem said his community remains consistent in its opposition to the reclamation of Benoa Bay proclaiming: “Once we advance (together), we refuse to ever retreat!”

Another speaker coming from the Regency of Jembrana said that the reclamation of Benoa Bay would only profit certain select members of the community. Adding, Benoa Bay is a sacred area that must be preserved and protected.

A Future for Bali Traditions in a Contemporary World
By Peter J. Wilson and Made Sidia


Two legendary men of the theatre, Australian Peter J. Wilson and Balinese Made Sidia, have collaborated in creating modern masterpieces that include the longest running stage show in the Island’s history at the Bali Agung Theatre at the Bali Safari & Marine Park and the two recently premiered Balinese Living Arts Show in Ubud.

While music, dance and the fine arts are a central feature of Balinese society, how is it evolving and adapting amidst the din and competition of the “entertainment on demand” era? How do theatre, art and social comment through the arts have a place within arts that are steeped in a wonderful tradition?

Made Sidia and Peter Wilson have worked together over the past 20 years creating innovative ways of communicating Balinese culture based on centuries old traditions, making the Island’s culture accessible to a new generation of both Indonesian and international audiences.

Not to be missed! Two world class storytellers and showmen at the height of their artistic powers.

Making a Difference in the Lives of Bali Children
Australian Margaret Barry Honored with Order of Australian Medal for Her Work with Bali Children Foundation.

Bali resident Yarram-born philanthropist Margaret Barry has been awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for services to education.

Granted on Australia Day, January 26, 2018, the award was given to Barry for her role in establishing the Yayasan Samiarsa Seminyak (Bali Children Foundation), a not-for-profit organization, which brings educational opportunities to disadvantaged children across Bali.

A resident in Bali for 27 years, while developing the foundation, Margaret owned and operated her own fashion and lifestyle brand MAGG Bali. She closed the business in 2017, however, to focus solely on philanthropic work. Explaining: “I decided after 42 years making frocks, I’d done about as much as I was going to do in that space. I really wanted to do something that would make a significant difference to people’s lives. I enjoyed the creativity of being in the fashion industry, but it is way more exciting to create sustainable change in communities and see young graduates move into their adult lives. After 15 years of balancing fashion and philanthropy, it was time to decide.”

It was the 2002 Bali bombings that pushed Margaret into action. “I believed that terror was created by economic disadvantage and by people having no options,” she said, “By giving them options I believe that we can fight terror in Bali and prevent it getting any foothold, but the only way I could see that being successful would be providing education to the disadvantaged children in Bali’s remote areas.”

Barry worked with children’s homes in North and West Bali for the first three years and concluded that a more sustainable aid model was well overdue. “Through children’s homes, we could only impact a limited number of students, and there were so many villages where the children were just as poor, if not more poor, than the ones in the children’s homes.”

In 2005, Margaret, Bali Children Foundation chairman, Agung Sutama and founding Board member Mike Dolbey, launched their first community-based project in Corot, North Bali, supporting a total of 40 students. The exercise was a huge success. “Over the next ten years we kept expanding from one village to another, and we now reach over 3700 students in 53 communities,” Margaret said.

Directors of the Australian-based charity Bali Children Foundation Limited, The Australian Government and generous donations from around the world back Barry’s work. Going forward, Margaret hopes to complete the work on Bali and create a “future proofing” plan for the foundation. “Most likely, once Bali is done, we will move into the Eastern Indonesian areas where there is an enormous disadvantage,” she says.

For now, the Foundation’s work remains focused on Balinese soil. “There is still a heap of kids on Bali who need to be helped. The region around the Mount Agung volcano will be particularly important once the mountain settles down.” On how it feels to be honored with an Order of Australia Medal: “It is very exciting to receive the award, but I have to recognize that a job of this size can never be done by one person. I’ve been backed by superb board members from the early days, committed staff, and hundreds of fantastic supporters.”
