Living life as the Balinese are very pleasant

Balinese Hindu ritual
Balinese people's lives are filled with unique rituals. Almost every day there is a ritual. Hindu rituals are very different from elsewhere. It was because of Hindu in Bali has been fused with the culture and traditions that existed before the influence of Hindu came to Bali. For this reason, Hindus in Bali is very different from anywhere else in the world.

From birth to death, the Hindu religion in Bali, has been confronted with the ritual. Ritual aims to get the balance of life in the universe. Not that the rituals of the Balinese people adore a lot of things. They still worship one God, but before the supreme God, there is still much lower than God, ie gods and ancestors.

Hindu, before entering to Bali, Balinese people have embraced the dynamism of trust, trust in the presence of ancestral spirits that always affect their lives. However, since the entry into Bali, dynamism confidence fused with the Hindu religion. Dinamisne blend with Hindu teachings, to make a new religion in Bali, the Balinese Hindu.

Balinese Hindu ritual
Many of the activities that must be done in Bali. Gather with other residents from one village. Work together in addressing the problem in the village. Working together to build the temple. Working together to make the road. Many of the activities are carried out together without thinking of the commission. All this is done in order to make life better. Togetherness is the capital of a better life in Bali.

But now everything is changed. Many people have thought of material life, from the social life in the neighborhood. The village as a place to live to be confronted with material interests. This has an impact on the materialistic attitude among residents. Thus threatening the survival of customs, culture, traditions, and art that became a tourist attraction for Bali.

Bali is very dependent on the social life of its citizens, so that the continuity idustri Bali tourism, as the island's main income, remains ongoing. If the residents of Bali choose to be an entrepreneur rather than maintaining a good social life, it can be transformed into the island of Bali is filled with competition. Competition can lead to disputes between residents.

Arak Bali is still killing people

Arak Bali were mixed with methanol to keep killing people until now. Although there are already many people died from drinking Arak Bali, as well as many media reported about the death of people after drinking Arak Bali, but until now there are still people drinking Arak Bali mixed with methanol.

A student at the Undiksha University in Singaraja, MadeYogi Artha, 19, died from allegedly drinking arak laced with methanol. He died on Sunday, before dying, he drank arak on Tuesday. When he is not alone drinking arak, he and six of his friends, but only he were dead.

Three weeks ago there were three people who died from drinking Arak Bali mixed with methanol. Dozens of people are dying and need hospitalization. It is known, drinks alcohol that left three people dead, has been mixed with the methanol. Pathetic and embarrassing, very silly death because alcohol is mixed with hazardous liquids.

Methanol is a hazardous liquid that is commonly used for burning. But who knows what is in people's minds, so that would take the dangerous liquid. As well as the sellers who intentionally mix with the liquid can be lethal human. Do not have feelings and conscience. Killing people by selling toxic brew.

Ironically, a student who died from wine mixed with methanol, it turns out he was a student at a top university in Bali. Students should have been able to control yourself and think jernis with logic. Either out of ignorance or victimized. At least this incident be a lesson for us all. We have to be careful when buying a drink that is not a trademark.

Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) just be a logo

Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) is very well known from Bali, an endemic bird of Bali, to be knocked out of their natural habitat in West Bali National Park.

Forest habitats where lives have been damaged by illegal logging. Forest becomes bare, only dried grass and shrubs, so the Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) birds do not get food if it is in this condition.

In order to survive and not become extinct, the Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) should get more attention. Poaching resulted into declining population. The sale price is very high so much in the search by the hunters. As the animals were protected, the government should pay more attention, and make every effort so that effort Bali Starling still exist.

Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) became the logo and mascot by Jembrana, but does not care about its existence, might as well take advantage of the existence but not royalty. Central and local government should give more attention to the Bali Starling, from extinction, such as the tiger who lived in Bali, but now no more because of extinction by poaching, shrinking forests.

Bali Starling (Jalak Bali) has always boasted by the government as endemic and native birds of Jembrana. But they do not take action to protect and maintain the existence of these birds in their natural habitat. At least the government make a special breeding, and doing so in mass culture Bali Starling bird populations continue to grow. As well as taking action against the hunters who intentionally capture and sell the Bali Starling.

Death of foreign tourists in Bali

Leak Bali
Dead is the end of life. In Bali death ends with cremation. Cremation in Bali is often called a ngaben. The death of many kinds. In general there are two types of death. Deaths due to expected and unexpected deaths due. Deaths due to expected his name is suicide.

Bali as a tourist destination famous, but many tourists who died in Bali, so it's image. Because Bali is very much a tourist reported dead from various causes. There is a known cause, there is also no known cause. Bali as a tourist destination by people from various countries, should be able to provide comfort and safety for anyone. But this is Indonesia, a country emerging and emerged from the crisis that never happened, take some time to be able to be a country that can provide security for anyone.

The death of a tourist in Bali, be bad news for the reputation of Bali. Because long ago, Bali is known as the island is very safe and comfortable place to visit. But along with the growth of population and lifestyle changes, now the island of Bali into hell. Opinion who has told that Bali is hell, never reported by the Times magazine. And it is an indisputable fact.

Since the beginning of 2000 until now, there has been much news of the death of foreign tourists in Bali. Even the most common time of the Bali bombing. At that time there were more than 200 foreign tourists who died because of the bomb. Terrible and heartbreaking, too sad. Bali is no longer safe for anyone.

In addition to the bomb, the death of foreign tourists also occur due to many factors. Factors that could have been prevented and addressed. Some of the factors causing the deaths of foreign tourists is the food, beverage, murder, robbery, rape, accidents, disease, and natural disasters. But the worst death and damage the image of Bali is for murder.

It has been very often we hear of foreign tourists who were vacationing in Bali died because they were killed. Of cause there is trivial, there are also complex. Such as murder because the romance and fights. But the death of foreign tourists in Bali is the most unique because of food allergies. As happened some time ago. Two Australian tourists died from eating seafood.

The killing of foreign tourists are also common in Bali. It usually occurs in conjunction with the murder case of theft and robbery. The most vulnerable are the tourists who occupy the villa which is not guarded by a security guard. Such conditions would facilitate entry and hurt tapered robbers who were in the villa.

But one death is very bad and embarrassing for the image of Bali is alcohol poisoning. These events often occur, but only a few cases reported in the media. Also very little has been known cause. Deaths from drinking Arak Bali is one case that is very damaging to the image. Because Arak Bali is Balinese-made alcoholic beverages.

Whatever the cause of death, especially in Bali involving foreign tourists, at least it can be avoided. Because the reputation of Bali as a safe and convenient island may fade due to an act of crime committed by people who do not care about Bali.

Do you know the cause of Arak Bali become deadly?

Arak Bali is an alcoholic beverage made ​​by the people of Bali. This drink is made through a process of distillation of fruit and foliage. Distillates that produce alcoholic beverages called Arak Bali.

Arak Bali traditionally made by Balinese people. Not made by the big companies are capable of producing very much a day. Arak Bali created and produced alcoholic drinks on a small scale, and included in the home-based business. You alone can make arak Bali with just a few simple tools, and the materials are easy to come by.

However, in the sale of Arak Bali, there are a few suppliers that make a very profitable business. They buy directly from some of the craftsmen and accommodate these beverages to be sold to consumers. Purity of this supplier Arak Bali should be questioned. Very common fraudulent actions by traders to gain a huge advantage.

Many rogue traders Arak pure mixing with dangerous chemicals. The goal is to get greater profits. Arak Bali usually mixed with additional water and alcohol. To obtain the harsher effect on Arak Bali which has been mixed with water, added a little methanol, or other dangerous materials. To trick a strange taste, which adds a lot of this procession with club soda, and add a little artificial sweetener.

Balinese people who understand and master of Arak Bali, they know the difference Arak Bali with original and pure mixed with various hazardous materials. Arak Bali is pure and authentic when taken in appropriate amounts, it will not cause damage to body tissues. However Arak which has been mixed with hazardous liquids, one drink can damage the stomach and other organs. It can even cause death.

A few days ago, in North Bali, in Buleleng Regency, there is a very sad incident. Three people died and 24 had to hospitalization due to drink Arak Bali which has been mixed with the methanol. The deadly drink obtained from a grocer who also sold wine. The police arrested the traders and inquire from him.

Based on the information obtained, it turns deadly wine has been blended with a number of dangerous liquids such as methanol. This was done to aim to get a big profit. The great advantage that hurt many people, until death occurs.

Should we all have to be vigilant with events like this. It is better not to drink liquor unclear origin. Should we drink alcohol that has been registered and the apparent source of production. Although expensive the most important is the goal that earned dirapkan but not damage body tissues.

Bali is a very lucrative drug trade

Island of Bali as a world tourism destination which is very famous, so be a very profitable business activities. Because there are many people from different countries living in Bali. Europeans, Americans, Asians, Africans, Arabs, Australians, and many more, they stay in Bali.

More and more foreigners visiting Bali, the greater the profits earned by the tourism businesses. Hence increasing also in the foreign exchange earned by the country. Although not all of the people of Bali to enjoy the benefits of the tourism sector. At least the people of Bali's economic growth is improving. If the economy is getting better, then the purchasing power is getting better.

The purchasing power of the people of Bali are currently above average Indonesian citizen country generally. It can be measured from the number of cars increasing purchases in Bali. This is not apart from the tourism sector can prosper the people of Bali. So most people can afford to buy what they want.

But the purchasing power of citizens growing Bali, Balinese people are becoming increasingly consumptive. Feel has a lot of money, they buy anything even though they do not need. It is a waste, but that's the reality.

These conditions are exploited by an international network of drug dealers. They take advantage of the economic growth in Bali is getting better. Balinese people being targeted narcotics sales. Balinese people actually know that narcotics are harmful to health and their future, but a variety of tricks performed by a drug dealer.

One technique that is most often done by drug dealers that Balinese people want to buy it is to get into a discotheque and other night spots. From there the drugs are very easily offered. Relaxed and pleasant conditions in the discos, people become oblivious to everything that is bad and should be avoided. Such conditions make it easier for drug dealers to offer to anyone who is in the discotheque.

As some cases arrest drug dealers in discotheques by the police. Police repeatedly arrest drug dealers in discos and other night spots. In fact there are two disc jockeys who caught carrying and using drugs at a villa in Kuta. This incident proves that the drug began to be known and consumed since the knowledge of discos and nightclubs.

Rice planting season is currently in Bali

Rice planting season is currently in Bali
From ancient Balinese people live and work as a farmer. Until now, the profession as farmers still do. However, the farmer only the parents, who did long ago was a farmer. The younger generation is very rarely interested in becoming farmers. Because working as a farmer is very tiring, but earning very little.

Bali is the current rainy season, and has been going on since two months ago. Water is abundant, even causing flooding. However, the availability of water is sufficient. So this time in Bali is the season to plant rice. All planted rice paddy in Bali began.

The best time to see the beautiful rice fields in Bali is from now through the next six months. Almost all the rice fields looks green, clean, and tidy. Decorated by green rice plants. Rivers and ditches in the rice field filled by water very clean, and clear.

For those who love the activity of photography, now is the perfect time to take a picture of the rice fields in Bali. Activities of farmers in rice fields into an object that is very nice to be taken with the camera. Farmers plant rice seedlings moment, when they're bending when planting, be a very good object to be taken. With the background of terraced rice fields and blue sky.

The best place to visit is Jatiluwih and Ubud. Both of these places have a very extensive rice fields and beautiful. Jatiluwih famous terraced rice fields and wide. Ubud is famous terraced rice fields that exist in the hills and valleys. As well as the beautiful river with water so clear and clean.

Regencies in Bali that is famous as the biggest rice producer is Tabanan. Tabanan has a nickname as the rice granary of Bali. Most of the rice for the consumption needs of the people of Bali are from Tabanan. Jatiluwih a rice field which is very nauseating and beautifully located in Tabanan. Tabanan residents work as the majority of farmers who worked the rice fields.

Previously foreign tourists to Bali to see the culture, art and tradition, but now they are to Bali to see the beauty of nature and enjoy the beach. The purpose of tourists come to Bali to enjoy the beginning of art and culture, turning to natural attractions and entertainment. So the resistance in Subak tradition as a defense against the survival of farmers who manage the fields in Bali, can be in danger of disappearing.

Beach abrasion in Bali

The island of Bali has a coastline of about 430 km. Not long, but not too short. Therefore Bali can be explored in one day. If not stopped by in a long time in some places. Along the beach in Bali there are also many tourist attractions, and a destination for tourists from various countries.

Beaches in Bali is very famous. The most famous in the area of ​​southern Bali. Because there are a lot of beach in South Bali have white sand, with big waves, so it is great for surfing, as in Kuta Beach. So the government pays great attention to its sustainability. To prevent damage due to abrasion and exploitation. More attention from the government to the beach in South Bali, making the beach is always awake condition.

But unlike the coastal conditions in West Bali. Beaches in West Bali is not a beautiful beach. Everything is black sandy and rocky. Beaches in West Bali became the center of the fishing industry. Fishermen and fish processing companies based there. Beaches in West Bali is also a river estuary for very much. During the rainy season, the beach will be very dirty by litter of the forest in the mountains.

Because the beach in West Bali is not a tourist area, the government is very less attention. Even none at all. Conditions are not maintained and are not observed, there must be self-supporting citizens to take care of the beach.

Currently shoreline in West Bali on the wane, it is caused by the abrasion that occurs. 88.3 kilometer beach on Bali experience abrasion. The most severe erosion occurs in Jembrana Regency. Starting from the Perancak village in Mendoyo, up to the beach in the Candikusuma village in Melaya. Many residential occupation at the beach was destroyed due to abrasion. Even the most severe in Perancak village, and the Pebuahan village. Many homes were destroyed by waves continues to hit. Even a lot of sand washed out to sea. So that the region does not have a beach because the sand is swept away.

The government just pay attention and maintain the beach in Pengambengan village, Negara district, Jembrana. Pengambengan village region there are many fish processing plants.
