Rejang Dance at Tenganan

On Thursday, 6/28/2007, my boss and I had the rare opportunity to witness the Rejang dance at Banjar temple in ancient Tenganan village. Pak Mangku, the community leader of Tenganan, told us that the Rejang performance will start at 4 P.M so at 3.30 we went to the Banjar temple, but as any other areas in Bali, the concept of “punctuality” was definitely unknown here.

Muran Teruna Ceremony

In accordance with Usaba Sambah series of ceremony (a month-long series of ceremonies which is held in the fifth month of Tenganan calendar) that is held in the ancient village of Tenganan, a special ceremony for the youth known as Muran Teruna is held.

International flights alone contributed 45% of Garuda’s revenue in 2006. Pujobroto, Garuda spokesman said, “we terminate our service to Amsterdam at the end of 2004 because it wasn’t competitive and was losing money. Now, we are considering reopening it with improved efficiency and profitability, Amsterdam is actually a highly prospective market in Europe.” “Garuda was now studying what needed to be done to improve its services, including the use of newer aircraft and expanding promotion to business passengers,” he added.

Perasi - A Beach with Kuta in 70s Atmosphere
June 29th, 2007

Perasi, a small village near Amlapura, the capital city of Karangasem has a secluded white-sand beach, unknown to the most of travelers to Bali. It is quite difficult to reach this quiet beach, since there is no billboard or big sign to indicate the way, only a small pointer attached to a post, what you have to do get to Perasi, and ask for White sand beach, to get there you have to experience long winding narrow road flanked by forest, at the end of the road you have to struggle another km through a bumpy path among the coconut trees. But this beach is worth every single ordeal you take, this beach is free of peddler and hawkers, only a small thatched roof food stall available, the atmosphere and condition will remind you of Kuta in early 70s.
