An Exciting Journey to a New Life
Many westerners have become Balinese through the Suddhi Wadani ceremony and the Manusa Yadnya (ceremony for human) ceremony. Suddhi Wadhani ceremony can be paralleled with taking a vow ceremony. In this ceremony someone make a vow to become a Hindu follower, but in order to become a Balinese another series of ceremony have to be performed. To be a Balinese someone has to be “reborn” in Balinese way. A Balinese is given various ceremony since he/she in the womb of his/her mother until he/she pass away, even long after he/she passed away a ceremony is held for him/her.

Editor Review: Tandjung Sari
Tandjung Sari in Sanur is a boutique resort that has direct access to the beach. Designed in bungalow style, the buildings is a bit date but well maintained and clean (an example of good maintenance that hard to find in Bali), the room is also spacious and clean. The outdoor shower of the bathroom is nice and clean. Each bungalow has its own little garden. Don’t expect for modern amenities such as IPOD dock or TV but you can expect for the serenity, friendly staff, and wonderful service. The breakfast and the food at the restaurants are nice. The serenity and romantic ambience are the points that make Tandjung Sari ideal for romantic getaway.

Aravane Rezai wins Bali title after opponent Marion Bartoli retires hirt
November 10th, 2009

Aravane Rezai claimed her second career trophy with a 7-5 win at the Bali Tournament of Champions as fellow Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli quit with a thigh injury after the first set.

Rezai’s win should see her break into the WTA top 30 for the first time.

The victory in 62 minutes - it ended on a Bartoli double-fault - was the first all-French singles final on the Tour since Amelie Mauresmo beat Mary Pierce at the Paris Indoors in 2006.

The title was the second of her career for the 44th-ranked Rezai, following her win at Strasbourg in May.

“It’s a great feeling to be here in the final, I’m very sorry for Marion that this happened,” said the winner of a career-best $US200,000 ($220,000).

“I’d prefer to win in a different way, but it’s tennis, a lot of different things happen. I was really motivated to win here.”

Rezai now stands 2-2 in career finals after finishing runner-up in 2007 at Istanbul against Elena Dementieva and in 2008 at Auckland against Lindsay Davenport.

Bartoli dropped to 5-6 lifetime in singles finals after her disappointment on the tropical Indonesian resort island.

The number 12 had been bidding for a year-end number 10 finish had she claimed the trophy.

“I’m crying right now, but I’m so happy to be here,” said Bartoli, runner-up at Bali three years ago when it was part of the regular WTA Tour.

“Aravane had a wonderful week and played some great tennis.

“My leg was hurting. I tried my best to carry on, but it was too much pain. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to finish today.”

Top seed Bartoli had been bidding for a third title of the season.
