Mudipa and the two O'Hehir men were filmed smiling and shaking hands beofre the press.

When the two Australian men were released from jail and safely back in Australia, they began to tell a different story to Australian press, claiming that they were the victims of an aggressive attack by the Balinese restaurateur.

Australian press reports identified Scot O'Hehir as working as a director of Human Resources for Checkside in Perth and Timothy O'Hehir as working as a dentist in Singapore for the Raffles Medical Group. The Raffles Group have contact Bali Update to deny that O'Hehir is employed by their organization.

Bali Health Department to Enhance Public Health Services in 2015

The Bali Provincial Health Service has pledged to enhance its services to the public in 2015.

As part of the Island's Mandara development vision that embraces a "healthy Bali," plans to improve health services in 2015 were outlined by Dr. Ketut Suarjaya, the Chief of the Provincial Health Service on Monday, December 22, 2014.

"Efforts to prevent illness are not solely the Government's duty. The public plays a large role in protecting themselves from a number of illnesses," explained Suarjaya.

Bali's position as an internationally famous tourism destination is also susceptible to a number of contagious diseases, such as MERS-COV, Ebola and Avian Flu.

In anticipation of this threat, Bali has stationed disease control officers at its air gateway; and the ports of Padang Bai, Benoa and Gilimanuk.

The Bali Health Department said they were also preparing to offer a competitive level of service and personnel with the region as Indonesia enters into the era of free trade and free movement of workers ushered in by the ASEAN Free Trade Zone.

As part of this program, Bali's Health Department is pushing for hospitals in Bali to receive professional accreditation.

The Indonesian Cendrawasih (bird of paradise) is reserved for use by pedanda (BalineseHindu priest) to enhance sacred ceremonies through the bird’s ability to bring peace and supportive cosmic vibration. The Bird of Paradise symbolizes happiness in marriage in Chinese calligraphy.
 
Continuing on this ornithological bent, the Phoenix in Greek mythology is a bird that obtains new life by rising from the ashes.

The symbolic and metaphoric meaning of birds is at the core of the current exhibition by renowned Balinese artists Made Wianta,

Biting Commentary
Bali Health Officials Seek to Control Dog Population and Increase Anti-Rabies Vaccination Programs

The State News Agency Antara reports that the Bali Provincial Health Department continues to try to control the canine population in Bali in order to reduce the number of dog bite incidents and the accompanying threat of rabies.
 
“In order to reduce the number of bites and the cause of rabies we need to control the dog populations,” said the chief of the Bali Provincial Health Service, Dr. Ketut Suarjaya in Denpasar on Tuesday, December 23, 2014.
 
Dr. Suarjaya blames the high number of dog bites treated in Bali on the large number of dogs living on the Island.
 
Saying that pet dogs also pose a threat from rabies, pet owners are reminded by health officials of their responsibility to vaccinate their pets.
 
Between January to December 2014, Bali recorded 41,891 cases of dog bites were treated at local hospitals and health centers.
 
The number of dog bites on record in 2014 does, however, show an improving trend. In 2013 some 44,0000 bites were recorded, while 55,000 bites are on record for 2012.
 
Not every dog that bites a human in Bali is infected with rabies, but anyone bitten by a dog must be tested for rabies and given anti-rabies vaccine, explained Dr. Suarjaya.
 
In an effort to reduce the number of human deaths from rabies in Bali, the Province has budgeted between Rp. 6 – 9 billion (US$500,000 – US$750,000) to supply anti-rabies vaccine in 2015.
 
The present stock of anti-rabies vaccine in Bali totals 18,900 vials – a supply sufficient for one month into the future, after which new supplies will need to be stocked.

Vice President: Executions of Narcotic Offenders to Go Ahead

Indonesian vice-president Jusuf Kalla has stated that the execution of narcotic offenders will be carried out in Indonesia as President Joko Widodo has ruled out any sentence remission for 64 drug offenders on death row.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Kalla said on Friday, December 26, 2014, “I need to emphasize that the Government has never decided to execute anyone; the courts have decided to impose the death penalty.”
 
The vice-president, speaking in Aceh where he was attending commemorations of the 10th anniversary of the Boxing Day tsunami, continued, saying the president was only asked to give a sentence remission to those under penalty of death. President Widodo in taking a decision first sought input from mass Islamic organizations, such as Muhammadiyah, said Kalla.
 
Based on meeting with these organizations, the President was urged to allow the death sentence to be carried out because the narcotic crimes of those awaiting execution were extremely heinous.
 
“Therefore, because the President granted no amnesty, then automatically the request for a remission has been rejected and the executions will go ahead,” said Kalla.
 
Jusuf Kalla said the Islamic organizations were not alone in seeking that the death penalty be imposed on drug offenders, with most Indonesians agreeing with harsh penalties for drug offenders.

Getting into Hot Water in Bali
Hot Springs at Toyabungkah Ė a Popular Stop on a Tour to Kintamani and Mount Batur

One of Bali’s more unique tourism experience awaits on the shores of volcanic Lake Batur, in the shadow of still active volcano Mount Batur.

In the village of Toyabungkah on Lake Batur guests can soak in healing hot springs. The Batur Natural Hot Springs gush forth from deep inside the nearby volcanic mountain with water rich in sulfur, thought to impart good health and healing effects on all those who take time to soak.

Quoted by Beritadewata.com, the director of the Batur Village Industry, Wayan Absir, said, “mostly those who bathe at the Batur Natural Hot Spring are people seeking medical relief.”

The traditional village of Batur owns the Hot Springs. Originally a very small spring with a single outlet, professional management by the village has now established a simple pool area on the shores of the lake with accompanying changing and bathroom facilities.

Efforts to improve the site have been rewarded with a steady increase in visitor numbers, prompting the installation of an additional pool in 2014.

The cost of admission the Batur Natural Hot Springs is Rp. 60,000 (US$5) per person. An adjacent restaurant offers local food specialties, including mujair – a freshwater fish that lives in the lake.

Absir said that in high season the Hot Springs can attract as many as 5,000 visitors in a single month.

In order to attract more visitors, additional investment is needed to repair the access roads to the Hot Springs and improve parking facilities.

Bali Childrenís Project Provides Education on Sex and HIV/AIDS

Bali Children’s Project has received a second one-year grant for educating Bali’s children in Sex Education/HIV&AIDS from the Mel Wolf Foundation.
t of US$15,000 will allow Bali Children’s Project to continue and expand its program of educating Bali’s youth about the sometime-taboo subjects of HIV/AIDS and sex education.

Teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in Bali, fueled by a boom in teenage population and little education regarding sex.
formal sex education in the current school curriculum, youngsters are left poorly armed to deal with such issues. The initiative led by the Bali Children’s Project focuses on children of age 15 years and above.

This is the fourth year for Bali Children’s Project’s Sex Ed/HIV workshops.

The targeted number of students to receive training this year is 2,400.  Aiming to spread their education over the widest possible area, the Project will visit 5 schools each in 8 regencies in Bali. At each schools a maximum of 60 students undergo training.  In order to maximize the impact of the program, the students who receive training are then urged to become student teachers in order to pass on their knowledge to classmates, with help from their teachers and BCP training materials.

In the villages where each of the schools is located, parent workshops are also held in the evenings. These workshops for 30 parents each, with 2 workshops per village area, result in a targeted 480 parents better equipped for informed and meaningful dialogue on sexual development issues with their offspring.

Equipped with fun videos, entertaining staff and a serious message - the Bali Children’s Project team is linking to schools all over Bali to deliver their message of safe sex. As the HIV rates rises among youth in Bali, the need for education also increases.

‘Without being informed about sexual education, it is difficult for youngsters to understand these issues. We want to give young people the power to make their own decisions in life," Linda Venter, director of Bali Children’s Project commented. ‘We thank The Mel Wolf Foundation for the funding that means we can continue the program in 2015’.

The Fools on the Hill
Bali Association of Travel Agent Vent their Displeasure with Kintamani and Bangli Regency Administrators

The Bali chapter of the Association of Indonesian Travel Agents (ASITA) have called on the head of tourism for Bangli Regency (Kadisbudpar-Bangli) to list their objections to the recent and very sudden increase in “retribution” charged people visiting recreation and sports areas in Bangli.

As reported on Balidiscovery.com Mountain High Prices visitor tariffs have suddenly increased from Rp. 10,000 per person to Rp. 30,000.

At a meeting held on Tuesday, December 23, 2014, at the ASITA-Bali headquarters in Denpasar, senior members of the organization voiced their unhappiness with the lack of socialization to the travel industry and the general public prior to announcing the increase, and questioned the timing and basic wisdom of imposing higher fees on domestic and international tourists who are viewing many of the tourist destination in the Bangli regency with growing disfavor.

The ASITA leaders complained that the sudden increase in fees by Bangli without prior consultation with their membership is at odds with the role played by travel agents and licensed guides in Bali who are tasked by the Government to promote Bali and its many sub-destinations to foreign and domestic visitors.

ASITA told Bangli’s leaders that their members are not opposed to reasonable increases in admission and retribution fee, providing any such increases are preceded by tangible improvements in the destination and related tourism object. In the view of Bali’s Tour Agent Association, it is wrong to increase fees by 300% against some vague promise that money will be spent on improving the infrastructure.

ASITA also said that, as professional partners of Bali’s regencies in the promotion of tourism, ASITA should be granted a “contract” or special price for its members to use in promoting a destination such as Bangli.

ASITA called on Bangli’s administrators to:
  • Improve and repair tourism objects in Bangli.
  • Repair the badly damaged roadways heading towards Kintamani.
  • Clean up the community of Penelokan at Kintamani that is dirty and disorderly; repair sales boothsthere that are extremely dirty; repair sidewalks that are a hazard to pedestrians; and remove all obstacles including benches from sidewalks.
  • Repair and upgrade the WWII Japanese War Caves in the southern part of Bangli is badly kept, dirty and now used for storage by local traders.
  • Demolish abandoned places of business. There are a number of closed restaurants that are falling into disrepair, including Rama Restaurant, Puri Dewata, Puri Selera, Abadi Restaurant, Puri Aninditha and Januardi. ASITA says It would be better if these abandoned restaurants were demolished and turned into public parks.
  • Take control of the illegal reataurants built along the lakeside of the road in Penelokan that are blocking views of Lake Batur and the Batur Volcano. These building are not only an eyesore, but are at risk in the event of earthquakes and landslides.
  • Enforce zoning and building codes at Kintamani.
  • Organize and control the aggressive touts and vendors at Kintamani.
  • Make Bangli consistent with its claim as a conservation area by ending open excavations (Galian C). Also, make set hours for the movements of trucks carrying excavated land through Bangli.
  • Provide more consumer information on Bangli tourist objects.


Holiday Hampered
AirAsia Inaugural Melbourne to Bali Flight on Boxing Day 2104 Cancelled

AirAsia Indonesian X – the new low-cost long-haul Indonesian subsidiary of Air Asia Indonesia that was to commence a new flight service connecting Melbourne and Bali on December 26, 2014 abruptly canceled these flight with only one day’s notice.
 
The “Christmas present” from AirAsia Indonesia X was sent on Christmas Day by SMS to advise that due to "an unforeseen delay in the approval process for necessary documentation" Australian and Indonesian aviation authorities had forbidden the Airline to operate its Boxing Day inaugural flight.

Passengers who were holding tickets were told that space would be made available on later flights to Bali via a connecting flight over Kuala Lumpur. Those opting for the connecting flight would, as space became available, endure a 13-hour journey instead of the 6-hours promised on the cancelled direct service.
 
For many the last minute change in flights meant people would arrive in Bali at least one day late and, by several accounts, resulted in lost payments to hotels and villas. In at least one case, passengers claimed the change cause people to miss family weddings.
 
AirAsia Indonesia X told the press that the direct service between Melbourne and Bali would commence as soon as governmental regulatory requirements were met.

Red Cross Blood Center at Sanglah Hospital in Desperate Need of Blood Donors

NusaBali reports that the Red Cross Blood Center at Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar is in urgent need of blood donors. Bali is in he midst of the year-end holiday period and is experiencing an acute shortage of Type “O” blood.
 
A spokesperson for the Blood Center said on Friday, December 27, 2014 that only one bag of Type “O” blood remained on hand due to the high demand for blood and the lower rate of donations during the holiday period.

The lack of donors this year was accentuated by the convergence of the Christmas and New Years holiday with the Balinese celebration of the Galungan-Kuningan Holiday cycle.
 
The public, including visiting tourists, are encouraged to come to the blood center at Sanglah General Hospital and donate blood to held alleviate the current crisis.
 
The Blood Center says stocks are also low for A, B, and AB blood.
