Banyupinaruh Holiday
On Sunday, 02/28/2010, Balinese celebrate Banyupinaruh holiday. This holiday is celebrated every 210 days, every six months in Balinese Pawukon Calendar and every seven-month on Gregorian calendar. Banyupinaruh is a holiday in which Balinese celebrate the coming of the knowledge to the world. The word “Banyupinaruh” itself is derived from the word “banyu” means “water” or “holy water” and “pinaruh” or “pinaweruh” means “knowledge” so Banyupinaruh can be translated into “holy water of knowledge”. Balinese believe, the goddess of knowledge, Saraswati bestow knowledge to the humankind on this holiday.

Starbucks in Ubud: MY OPINION by David Mendoza
There is a controversy raging in them tha hills of Ubud. To Starbuck or not? The expat community (those who are talking loud) are mainly against it. But not all. The Balinese probably are not aware of all the political implications and buttons it pushes in some of us. I am forwarding David’s opinion, not because I necessarily agree with it, but because it is eloquently stated and gives rise to a lot of issues that should be discussed with the planners of Ubud.
