In the Edge of Extinction: Betel Chewing

Betel chewing in Bali is an old pastime; nowadays, only the senior citizens enjoy this pastime. Betel chewing is definitely affordable to everyone since the ingredients that are needed can be easily obtained in the traditional market in a cheap price. Four ingredients are needed for betel chewing activities: betel leaf, areca nut, lime and gambir.

On Self-Deprecation

Balinese in a conversation will frequently deprecate themselves. Self-deprecation is a part of Balinese strategy of politeness. An old saying which goes “don’t think you can, let other judge you” is still deeply rooted in Balinese mind. It is considered arrogant for someone to say about himself without deprecation of his quality or ability, the decision whether you have a certain ability or not is in the hand of others.

August 5th, 2007

The House of Representative of Karangasem Regency and the members of traditional farmer association (subak) reject a plan to establish 100-Hectare golf course in the sacred area of Besakih temple. Based on the rejected plan, this 100-hectaregolf course was planed to be built in three villages Besakih, Tegenan and Menanga Rendang.

House of Representative and farmers from these three villages oppose the plan based on the government regulation on sacred place and conservation of the forest. This plan is feared to bring many negative effects such as threat to holiness of Besakih temple and lost of rice fields and the forest. The members of the House of Representative give a suggestion on relocating the plan to scarcely populated area of Kubu in the northeastern side of Mount Agung.
