Miss World 2013 is fully held in Bali

Miss World 2013 opening cemony

Miss World 2013 scheduled to be held in two different places. The opening was held in Bali, and the closing was held in Sentul Bogor, West Java. Agenda as well as the participants of Miss World 2013 visit to Borobudur temple seems only a plan that will not be realized.

The refusal Miss Wolrd 2013 in Indonesia from various community organizations in the name of Islam. Threat to the security of the participants, resulting in the implementation of the government to change the permission of Miss World 2013, the plan was initially held in two places, namely in Java and Bali, but in the end it should be decided only held on the island of Bali alone. This is very detrimental to the committee and the accommodations that have been provided previously.

Government decision to only give permission to the Miss World organization in Bali alone, irrational, and seemed very weak. Government seemed very weak for the refusal of a small part of the group, and ignoring national pride as a great nation.

Rejection of some Islamic organizations in the conduct of Miss World 2013, does not provide the proper reason and seem absurd. In fact, since the beginning of the committee has said that in this beauty contest, no bikini clad sessions. As previously done in other countries. Even penolkan could be disrupted by security threats that will be given to the contestants.

Of this, the organizers of Miss World 2013 at a very disappointed to have to accept the decision of the government, which allows the whole event only in Miss World 2013 held in Bali alone. So the organizers had to change all the scenarios and the arrangement of events starting from scratch.

So the government's decision, the final and closing ceremony of Miss World 2013. will be held in Bali.

Bali blinds

Blind
Bali blinds is the term given by the foreigners to someone who suffered blindness from consuming alcohol made ​​the Balinese. Alcoholic beverages are often made ​​in the Balinese called Arak. This beverage is a favorite of Balinese people. And has been taken by many Balinese. But now it has become an alcoholic beverage with a very bad image for tourists. Because of the threat of blindness haunt them. There used to be a very popular term for the Balinese food which often makes travelers feel uncomfortable. And now there is a new term, namely Bali Blinds.

Bali Blinds term became popular since two years ago. Since there are several tourists who drink Arak Bali. After they drank then paralysis and blindness. Then Bali Blinds increasingly popular term since there was a woman from United States (U.S.) who drank Arak Bali, then she blind. Perhaps there are many bad things that travelers experienced when drinking alcohol made ​​the Balinese people.

A girl from the United States (U.S.), suffered permanent visual impairment, blindness, after drinking several glasses of Arak Bali, the two bars in Bali. Cause, because the Arak contain harmful chemicals, methanol, which can be blinding.

Starting a few months ago, when 19-year-old girl, drink 8 to 10 glasses of wine Bali is presented, in two bars in the area of ​​Bali. From Bali, the girl then went to New Zealand, and colleagues. However, when he got there, she began experiencing shortness of breath, and felt his eyesight diminished.

Actually drinking Arak Bali does not cause blindness. Arak Bali is safe to drink. However, many employers who commit fraud against the drink. Especially the wine distributors, even the bar manager, who accidentally mix Arak Bali with certain compounds to obtain more exstrim effect. Compounds most commonly mixed into Arak Bali is methanol. So people who menimum This mixture can cause organ damage, and even death, and the saddest is blind.

Blind is extremely poor condition of the human eye. Because if someone is blind, the world will be dark. And very sad if blindness occurs due to consuming something we do not want. Like Arak Bali which has been mixed with methanol, which can cause permanent blindness. Surely it is not desirable to any person in this world. But if the blind during the brief, and will recover after the effects of alcohol and methanol in the body disappears, the possibility of recovery will occur.

If you want to drink Arak Bali without having to be blind, you should look at the craftsman Arak, in the Karangasem region. Because artisans Arak Bali, Karangasem make this drink is traditionally, and very rarely mixed with certain ingredients that can damage the body. They just made​​, do not mix. Mixing is usually done by the sellers and even distributors who want to gain a huge advantage.

In Bali, Bali Arak many served in bars in the area of ​​Kuta. The goal, the managing bars, serving alcoholic beverages to the Balinese. Yet, ironically, the suppliers Arak, Arak is often mixed with hazardous liquids, such as methanol. With the goal, can provide a more comfortable feeling. But, it can be bad for health.

Many adverse events experienced by foreign tourists, after drinking Arak Bali that has been mixed with hazardous liquids. As a few days ago, a young American girl, suffered blindness after taking Arak which has been mixed with methanol.

Bali time zone, time in Bali now

Time in Bali now


The earth is divided into 24 different time zones, corresponding layout of the area. A coherence time is universal time GMT, the time in Greenwich, England. Calculated based on the time zone longitude: 360 ° = 24 hours, 15 ° = 1 hour, 1 ° = 4 minutes.

In Bali using the time zone GMT +08. There are some countries that are in this time zone. Surely a country that is in the same time zone with Bali, would be very easy for travelers to customize their time if they want to Bali, if they are in the same time zone with Bali. But requires careful attention to the tourists who are going to Bali, if the country is much different time zones.

Actually Bali is part of Indonesia. While in Indonesia is divided into time zones tida. Western Indonesia Time, Central Indonesia Time, and Eastern Indonesia Time. Bali was included in Central Indonesia Time zone.

This difference resulted in confusion for tourists who use indirect plane to Bali. Because they usually have to transit in airports outside Bali. But for tourists who go directly to Bali, this time difference would not be a problem, because it has been addressed before.

Regions in Indonesia using the Central Indonesian Time zone is Sulawesi, Bali, Nusa Tenggara, South Kalimantan and East Kalimantan and North Borneo. Indonesian government plans to impose only one time zone in Indonesia. Using only the GMT+08 time zone. And Bali belong to it. So this change will not be adjusted by the Balinese people. However, the adjustment will be carried out by the Indonesian citizens living in Western Indonesia Time zone and East Indonesia Time.

When people travel a lot by plane jet, they often experience a sense of dizziness called jet lag. Because modern aircraft sped by very quickly, so that the one-time cost can pass through several time zones at once in a short time. On the other hand, the brain needs a few days to adjust the time.

In 1884 zone to time zone around the world are set, measured from Greenwich in London. Each time zone in the east or in the west of Greenwich has a different time. Each one-hour time zone at odds of the time zone is right next to him, more than an hour to the east and to the west an hour faster. One example of the time difference, for example, when the time is still showing at 12 noon in the UK, it was already 10 pm in Sydney, Australia.

Time is money, money is time. Timeliness is needed. Especially if we want to travel to a country using the plane ticket that we bought. Then the time should be a priority in this perjanan. So that we do not suffer losses.
