Bali Updates

Om Swastiastu ...

There's two articles on the continuing rabies epidemic in Bali. While the disease spreads, animal rights groups are warning the government that current measures are cruel, ineffective and likely to create a swelling rat infestation of Bali.We learned of the death last Sunday of long-time Bali resident, Bob Monkhouse - an award-winning champion of those trying to kick drug and alcohol habits in Bali and a guardian angel to our Bali neighbors afflicted with HIV/AIDS.We've got the results on the Commonwealth Bank Tennis Tournament just concluded in Bali which had an anti-climactic ending and the surprise suspension of one of the top players for failing to obey drug use protocols.

Last week a reformed Malaysian jihadist came to Bali and shared his insights on the workings of the terrorist mind and why Bali may remain a target for future terror attacks.

Earthquakes, landslides, floods and fires were all parts of an important emergency preparedness drill recently conducted in North Bali. We've got the details.

Governor Pastika sings praises on the way Malaysia promotes its tourism, wondering if there aren't lessons to be learned from our neighbors to the north. Meanwhile, business is booming from Kuala Lumpur to Bali as Malaysian Airlines now flies 3 times each day to Bali.

Looking for something to do in Bali? There's details of a one-month photographic exhibition near Nusa Dua; a contemporary painting exhibition by 4 Indonesian artists in Ubud; an open golf tournament at the Bali Nirwana Golf Course on November 14th; and a kids' day the the Bali Nikko Resort on November 15th.

There's also an interview with Indonesian spiritual guru Anand Krishna on the First Annual Bali Meditators Conference to be held in Ubud November 14-16, 2009.
