Pets as Food
North Bali Police Arrest Man Poisoning Dogs for Canine Meat Trade

NusaBali reports that a Buleleng, North Bali man identified by police only by the initial WSM (43), also know as Komang Ribut, was arrested by police on Friday, March 23, 2018.

Ribut  was accused by his neighbor, I Putu Oka, of poisoning his dog.

Apparently, Ribut is known for poisoning dogs as a means of securing meat in the preparation of a local culinary dish RW presented as "dog sate."

The culprit does not seem to differentiate between domestic pets or free-roaming dogs when harvesting dogs for sale to local dog meat stands. The dogs were all poisoned with bait mixed with potassium.

After luring the dogs with poisoned meat, Ribut waits while his canine victims agonize and die. He then temporarily conceals the dogs in tall grass on the roadside while he goes in search of another victim. Police say the man’s modus operandi was uncovered by a villager cutting grass to feed his livestock who then reported his discovery to the police.

Ribut has admitted his cruel enterprise under interrogation by police, saying the dogs were used to make sate. While he has been killing dogs for a long time, he has only switched to the use of poison in the past 3 months.

Police say Ribut will be charged under section 363 KUHP of the criminal code for theft that carry a maximum penalty of 7 years in prison. Police say the man could also be charged with endangering consumers by selling poisoned meat. No mention was made, however, of charging him under statues connected with animal cruelty.


Itís All Downhill
Mount Agung Volcano Experiencing Soil and Ash Slippage

A ravine located on the western face of the Mount Agung Volcano has subsided, sending a small avalanche of volcanic dust cascading downward.

Beritbali.com reports the landslide was reported on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, by Komang Eka Semaraputra, a volunteers from the Gunung Agung Association (Pesebaya Agung).

It is suspected that the land slippage occurred at 9:30 am after a small eruption on the mountain with rumbling sounds reported coming from the mountain’s peak at the time of the avalanche.

Experts suggest rainfall is turning volcanic ash into rain-sodden sludge that falls under its own weight down the hillside

Eka Semara Putra said the peak of Mount Agung is in a visible state of disarray that can be observed from as far as 1.5 kilometer from the Mountain’s crater.

Many trees on the Mountain’s slope, that can assist in resisting erosion and landslides, have died due to being covered in volcanic dust. Meanwhile, recent rains, however, are aiding in the sprouting of new tree life on the hillside.


In a Holding Pattern
In An Apparent Reversal, Jakarta Announces North Bali Airport Will Go Ahead, But Only After North-South Toll Road Built

NusaBali reports an apparent change in direction by National leaders in Jakarta who are now signaling that a planned new international airport in North Bali may still go ahead, despite a report that plans for an airport at Kubutambahan had been scuttled.

The Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, has announced that Bali’s new airport of the north will be built. Pandjatan says the ground breaking for the new airport will take place “if” and “when” the North-South Bali Tollway is constructed. Meanwhile, lawmakers from the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) are calling on the Ministry of Transportation to quickly declare the location for the Buleleng Airport.

Speaking in Jakarta on Friday, March 30, 2018, Minister Pandjaitan issues a written statement saying: “The construction of a North Bali Airport will take place, and a road connecting North Bali and South Bali will also be built. If the road construction is done, then the cornerstone for the North Bali Airport can be put in place. What remains to be done is to set the schedules, because the investment amount is very large.”

Luhut said the construction of the north-south road and airport can balance development between the northern and southern parts of Bali, contributing to the welfare of people living in the northern, western and eastern regions of the Island.

“We are calling for a study (on the Toll Road) to be quickly completed. Roads infrastructure on the left and right side of Bali will go ahead while at the same time preserving environmental balance,” said Luhut.

The Coordinating Minister also said that the expansion of Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport remains a pressing requirement to handle the rapid growth in passenger arrivals and delegates and VIP aircraft attending international conferences in Bali. Adding: “Earlier, it was decided to continue with the development of Ngurah Rai Airport. The recommendation from the Governor was issued on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

During his latest visit to Bali, Minister Pandjaitan made inspection visits to Bali’s Airport and the Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK) Monument.

Luhut told the press that the construction of the exterior elements of the GWK have reached 60% with the “topping off” to take place on May 20, 2018, in conjunction with a religious blessing for the monument. Developers hope the President will attend a formal inauguration of the GWK on August 28, 2018.


Not a Good Friday
Chinese Tourist Drowns While Snorkelling at Nusa Penida on Friday, March 30, 2018

A Mainland Chinese Tourist, Sun Xingrong (52) has drowned on Good Friday, March 30, 2018, while snorkeling at Nusa Penida.

Balipost.com said the drowning incident occurred at 9:45 am when Sun was snorkeling in a group with 23 other tourists. According to the manager of the Menaya One Pontoon, Putu Sujana, the Chinese tourists was found floating face down in the water.

Brought to the pontoon by staff and a lifeguard, Sun was very weak as he vomited seawater and foamed from his lungs. A short time later the man began to cramp and was rushed to the Nusa Penida Health Center (Puskesmas) for emergency treatment.

The man expired a short time later at the Puskesmas and was declared dead at 10:35 am.

The body was evacuated to the Sanglah General Hospital on Bali for forensic examination.

Ubud: Thatís Entertainment
Ubudís Celebrated Evening Show - Balinese Living Arts at Puri Kantor Ė Every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 7:00 pm.

The Royal Family of Ubud and Desa Visesa present a regular evening performances by Balinese Living Arts: Siwa Nataraja: Bali Unmasked at 7pm - 8 pm Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at Puri Kantor Palace,  Jalan Suweta, Central Ubud, Bali.

minutes’ theatrical extravaganza introduces an entirely new concept of art performance by incorporating the ancient story of God Shiva Nataraja and the creative-artistic process. The resulting program showcases thrilling and enchanting dance performances that include: the sacred topeng or mask dance; Topeng Bang - a refined interpretation of the life of Lord Brahma, God of Creation; and Topeng Telek depicting the Lord-God Wisnu -protector and preserver of the Universe. Lesser, supporting characters spring to life on stage  in a Topeng Kras dance portraying a militant character or a playful old gentlemen who emerges behind a Topeng Tua.

lt is an unequaled transformational theatrical representation of sacred Balinese mythology – an evening of theatre with memories to last a lifetime.

This outstanding show is a “must see” during any Bali visit. In a show where the performers mix freely with audience, theatergoers are mesmerized by the music, movements and inspiring storytelling of the dancers. Bali’s rich mask dance repertoire reveals contradictory aspects of the human experience – the sacred and the profane; beauty and ugliness; refinement and caricature - all are juxtaposed. The conclusions are inescapable: every force in life serves the function of helping to balance the cosmos. By surrounding themselves with art, spirituality and nature, the Balinese maintain a delicate balance between themselves and the Gods; between themselves and nature; and ultimately between each other.

highlight of the thrice-weekly Siwa Nataraja: Bali Unmasked performance is the masterful display of excellent gamelan playing.

Performed in the open courtyard of the Puri Kantor Palace, guests are emotionally transported by the rich heritage of the locality, a mixture of theatrical and fire-lit lighting, and the rich sound of the pentatonic gamelan that Stamford Raffles compared to the melodious sound of water rushing downstream over rocks.

w's creators have managed with compelling effect to combine traditional Balinese performance with contemporary stagecraft.

Behind the Scenes

Siwa Nataraja: Bali Unmasked is the latest chapter in the international collaboration between Peter Wilson, an Australian born - director, writer, producer and puppeteer and Balinese performance-master and puppeteer (Dalang) I Made Sidia.

Peter Wilson, has worked in a number of highly acclaimed theatrical productions that include; The Hobbit, King Kong, and The Fall of Singapore  that feature among a long list of production he has brought to the stages of New York, Tokyo, Doha, Kuala Lumpur, London, Paris and Beijing. Peter is a world-acclaimed puppet master and recognized as a major artistic voice in the combination of Western and Eastern theatrical traditions.

Made Sidia is the founder of Sanggar Paripurna - the artistic home of more than 600 students and one of Bali’s leading artistic centers for carving, the fine-arts, painting, dancing, puppetry, gamelan music and religious ritual. Made Sidia has collaborated and performed in international productions earning rave reviews for his artistry along the way.

Siwa Nataraja: Bali Unmasked presents top musicians, dancers and performers attracting an exciting cast of local talented artists from the local village. “You will be inspired by the exceptional dedication of musicians, dancers and infectious passion for arts of the Balinese performers and be enchanted by the imagination inherent in the story line. This show is not like any other shows you have ever seen in Bali,” said Rai Arsana of Desa Visesa.

Balipost.com reports that the large number of passengers and vehicles traveling between the Port of Padangbai on Bali and Nusa Penida using the RoRo Ferry is prompting calls from the public to increase the frequencies of trips.

To try to meet the demand for more sailings, the government for the Regency of Klungkung is urging that the RoRo ship operator (ASDP) Indonesia Ferry to increase the number of departures.

The Regency is hoping that the present frequency of daily trips between the two parts can be supplemented by three additional trips each week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, according to I Gusti Ngurah Suaba, the head of Transportation Services for the Klungkung Regency.

Suaba says the additional trips are needed to serve the growing number of passengers and facilitate the movement of cargo between Bali and Nusa Penida.

Past efforts to increase the number of trips from the current daily round trip have been started and then abruptly cancelled a short time later.

The Regency is currently reviewing fares charged for RoRo transport between Bali and Nusa Penida in order to enhance the profitability for the ferry operating the service.

A Short-Circuited Debate?
Bali Gubernatorial Candidate Wayan Koster Called out by PLN for Comments Opposing Java-Bali Crossing

Wayan Koster, a candidate seeking election as Bali’s Governor, public stance against the construction of the world’s highest High Voltage Line across the straits between Java and Bali has precipitated a response from the State Power Board in Bali (PLN).

Quoted by Jawa Pos, the general manager for PLN distribution in Bali, I Nyoman Suwarjoni Astawa, said: “In fact, I have no right to make a statement because I was not attending the campaign (when the statement was made).”

But, at the same time, Astawa questioned why the Java-Bali Crossing (JBC) had become an issue of political debate in the coming gubernatorial election. The official contends that PLN has been fastidious in explaining the need and basis for JBC to the public. Adding, “So this rejection (Koster’s) is not the desire of the entire or even a significant part of the people of Bali.”

Astawa explained that those objecting to JBC are not opposed to the PLN power line crossing, but only to the landing points that some fear will infringe on sacred temple areas. PLN has noted and is dealing with objections that the 365-meter-high landing tower would stand too close to the sacred Pura Segara Rupek.

“How to resolve issues surrounding the location of the landing tower are being discussed,” Astawa explained.

Koster, who has been informed on every step of the JBC project should, according to PLN observers, have a complete understanding of the issues surrounding the JBC mega-project and its strategic importance to both the Nation and the Island of Bali.

Continuing, Astawa cautiously said: “I am not bold enough to comment directly on Koster’s statement; whether his statement is inappropriate or his commentary mistaken. I am sure he (Koster) is a wise man.”

The PLN Official confirmed that he has yet to meet and discuss the JBC project directly with Koster. Adding, “I hope this project (JBC) is in accordance with the plans of the next Governor of Bali.”

Astawa said the JBC forms an integral part of the 2018-2027 overall plans for the supply of electricity for Bali (RUPTL). He emphasized that PLN supports plans to make Bali energy independent with clean and green energy sources.

In closing, Astawa said: “The hope is that with the electrical transmission carried by JBC Bali energy supplies will grow and remain strong. When JBC is in operation, Bali will then have the time to then think what sources of energy supply are most appropriate for its future.”


It Does Get Better
Indonesia Unveils Major Simplification of Export-Import Procedures

The Jakarta Post reports that President Joko Widodo continues to pursue the fulfillment of his election promise to simplify the bureaucracy and ease business procedures in Indonesia.

Changes have now been introduced in how licenses are issued and the amount of documentation required in the import export process.

While importation permits for items and materials needed for products destined for export once required 30 days to procure, Indonesia Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said the same process now only requires one hour.

Meanwhile, the 10 days once needed to stock goods in bonded zones has also been slashed to one hour.Describing other bureaucratic simplifications, Minister Mulyani said: "As for the issuance of identification numbers for importers, we can now do it in three days instead of the previous 10 days."

Responding to a complaint from President Joko Widodo that up to one year was needed to process a tax refund, Mulyani proclaimed that refunds could now be done in one month. "Pak President used to say that the refund could take more than a year, he had been through this himself (as a businessman). Now it is one month," boasted Sri Mulyani.

Bonded Zones now require the submission of just three documents, down from the former daunting total of 45 forms. Moreover, the entire process can now be performed entirely online.

Baliís Locavore Named Top-Drawer
Locavore Restaurant in Ubud Ranked Among Asiaís 50 Best Restaurants

The 2018 Edition of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants was announced on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, at an awards ceremony held at Wynn Palace in Macao.

Sponsored by S. Pellefrino and Acqua Panna, the Asia competition is held over six voting regions: India & Subcontinent; South-East Asia – South; South-East Asia – North; Hong Kong, Taiwan & Macau; Mainland China & Korea; Japan.

First launched in 2013, the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants is an industry-based selection process created by the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential group of over 300 leaders in the restaurant industry, called to serve with their expert opinion of Asia’s restaurant scene.

The complete list can be viewed online.

Pay Before You Toll
Bali Toll Road Seeking to Eliminate Cash Transaction at Toll Road Entrance Booths

Effective Sunday, April 1, 2018, PT Jasamarga Bali Tol (JBT) began reducing the sale and topping-up of E-money cards at the entrance gates to the Bali Toll Road.

The reduction in “as you enter” payment service is being undertaken to persuade toll road users to top-up or purchase e-money cards beforehand at Drive-thru booths operating in areas just before motorists drive onto the roadway.

Quoted by Beritabali.com the CEO of PT Jasamarga Bali Tol (PT JBT), Akhmad Tito Karim, announced on Monday, March 26, 2018 that he hoped the new "Drive-thru” booths will reduce dramatically motorists paying cash at the toll entrance.

“In stages and in a gradual way we will reduce and eventually eliminate the cash payment or top-up of e-toll cards at the entrance toll booths. This process will begin on April 1, 2018 at the Benoa entrance to the Bali toll road,” said Akhmad.

Akhmad also explained that starting from October 2017 until February 2018, PT JBT has received e-tickets between 1,119 and 2.475 times per day, admitting that the new e-ticket policy has resulted in long lines at rush hour, particularly at the Nusa Dua entrance.

“If all users of the toll way held e-money cards, only 2 seconds per vehicle would be required to enter the road. But for those who do not bring a card or have an insufficient balance on their card, the transaction time grows to 3 or 4 minutes. This is what causes long lines at the entrance to the toll road,” said Akhmad.

The drive through booth for top-ups or purchasing e-money cards is available near the on ramp at the Benoa entrance to the toll road and is open from 6:00 am until 9:00 pm.


Punished to the Maximum
Balinese Man Who Murdered Japanese Pensioners in Bali Gets Maximum Sentence of 15 Years in Prison

The man convicted of killing a Japanese couple in their home in the Jimbaran area of South Bali has been sentenced to prison for 15 years.

As reported by Beritabali.com, I Putu Astawa (25) bowed his head and cried when he heard the sentence handed down by the Denpasar District Court on Monday, March 26, 2018. The sentence match the sentencing demands made by State Prosecutors.

Although defendants and prosecutors are given a fixed period during which they may consider appealing the Court’s sentence, both the lawyer representing Astawa and prosecutors signaled they will accept the Court’s verdict.

Astawa was found to have been proven guilty of killing Hiroko Matsuba (76) and his wife, Nurio Matsuba (76). The Balinese man was found guilty of major theft resulting in multiple deaths. The sentence of 15 years was the maximum sentence allowed under the law.

The judges said the factor mitigating Astawa’s actions were his cooperative behavior during the trial and the fact that there appeared to be no degree of pre-meditation in the homicide that was committed when the man saw and open gate at the couples home on Sunday, September 3, 2017 and decided to commit a robbery. Astawa entered the open door and then bludgeoned and stabbed the couple to death while steeking stole the belongings of the elderly Japanese couple.

Also stealing the couple’s car, Astawa returned later in the day in an attempt to burn the home and eliminate evidence of his crime.


Thatís a Real Bummer
Bad Ending Awaits Two Indonesian and a Malaysian Arrested at Bali Airport with Crystal Meth Concealed in their Rectums

The Jakarta Post and Asia News Network report that two Indonesians and a Malaysian were taken into custody by police on Sunday March 11m 2018 after narcotics were found concealed in their luggage and anal cavities

The Malaysian, identified with the initials AA (23), had just disembarked AirAsia FD 396 from Bangkok on Sunday, March 11, 2018. The Malaysian was accompanied by two Indonesians, S (24) and AP (25).

The arrest of the three was only revealed in the last week of March.

Customs officials reportedly thought the three were acting suspiciously in the airport arrival area. Himawan Indarjono of the Ngurah Rai Customs Office said: "X-ray scanning showed that there were suspicious things in their bodies and among their belongings."

An extensive search of the AA’s luggage and his body yielded 36.2 grams of methamphetamines in his luggage.

Following the X-ray, the police took the trio to the customs and excise room for a further check, including a body search. Customs officers found 36.2 grams methamphetamine in AA's bag. A cavity search of the Malaysia yielded three more packets of methamphetamines weighing 36.25 grams, 33.73 grams and 20.73 grams.

A subsequent body search of S and AP found further packets of methamphetamines in the men’s recta. S was carrying four packets weighing 42.32 grams, 44.81 grams, 39.66 grams and 38.78 grams.
A similar search of AP – an Indonesian female – yielded a total of 140 grams hidden in her rectum and vagina.

The quantity of drugs found on the three marked them as drug dealers under Indonesian law permitting prosecutors to seek the death penalty.


Padi - Fine Dining by Chef Mandif Warokka
New Fine-dining experience at Desa Visesa Ubud Showcases Pesco-Vegetarian Cuisine Served with a Pronounced Asian Influence

Geographical and historical influences have long made Asia the world’s rice bowl and enthroned life-giving rice grains as the preferred staple at mealtime for Asian families. Across the region, rice is treated with deference - seen as symbolizing fertility and prosperity, while also inspiring the mind via the ubiquitous lush green backdrops of terraced and carefully cultivated padi fields. Grown in a variety of colors and grain lengths – each varietal has its own unique regional name with rice and the foods that complement it forming the centerpiece at every dinner table in Asia.

In Indonesia where rice is known, depending on its current status on its journey to human consumption, as beras, padi, or nasi – rice comes in dazzling varieties that are treated as a precious commodities and traded across the Indonesian archipelago.

The idyllic setting of the Desa Visesa Ubud, with its well-established reputation for outstanding cuisine, form a perfect match for Chef Mandif Warokka – a rising star in Asian culinary circles whose mantra is a reverential approach to using only the finest local produce in the preparation of tantalizing Asian and international flavors, colors and food textures.

te of a leading hotel academy in West Java, Mandif has worked at prestigious establishments in Europe including the Michel-starred Eisvogel in Bierkenhof, Germany. Back home in Indonesia, Mandif has accumulated awards for the Best Restaurateur of the Year 2013, Best Chef of the Year 2013, and Best New Restaurant in Bali in 2014 where he has opened and operated a number of highly acclaimed restaurants.

Boldness and the enjoyment of a culinary challenge have attracted Mandif to his latest challenge of opening Padi - a restaurant where he brings fine dining to a menu emphasizing vegetarian and pesco-vegetarian dishes. While many scoff at the idea of even attempting to create fine dining without allowing animal protein to play center stage, Mandif stands poised to dazzle such skeptics, vegetarians and pesco-vegetarians alike, with dishes likely to form life-long gustatory memories.

Reflecting Chef Madif’s unending search for garden goodness as ingredients in his latest creative inclinations, Padi visitors for dinner will be tempted to try one of the two daily table d'hôte 7-course pescatarian or 7-course vegetarian menus - both tours de force of their respective genres.

Whether drawn to Padi by the lure of health and wellness or the ethical callings of vegetarian and pesco-vegetarian dining, visitors will be seduced by both the food and the unique experience of dining in a cozy grotto beneath a bridge where calming and relaxing breezes waft through the gorge - refreshing both the mind and spirit.

Dining at Padi is both fine and exclusive dining, open only for dinner with seating available for only 30 guests, a number that permits both the service and kitchen teams to focus completely on pursuing quality over quantity.


In the Heavens, Staring at Paradise
NASA Astronaut Sends Tweet to his Former Home of Indonesia

On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Richard Robert “Ricky” Arnold II (54), a NASA Educator Astronaut currently circling the earth onboard the International Space Station (ISS), snapped a "heavenly" photo of Bali and its adjacent islands and then posted the picture on Twitter.

Arnold, prior to becoming an Astronaut, worked as a science teacher at a remote international school operated by Freeport, Indonesia in Timika, Papua. Accordingly, the NASA Astronaut gave a shout out to Indonesia – “a place I once called home” and mistakenly cited the region between Java and Bali as the location of the Wallace Line.

the Wallace Line, identified in 1859 by Alfred Russel Wallace, as the ecological dividing line between Asia and Australia is not located between Java and Bali, but in the deep straits between Bali and Lombok.

And those who claim Arnold’s picture of Bali is “upside down” need to keep in mind the “north” does not equate with “top” in outer space where there is arguably no such thing as “upside down.”

Arnold arrived on the ISS on March 23, 2018, on a 158-day mission.
