Part 4: “MY TIME” – The Seven Year Story from sunrise to sunset.

“My Time” – The Story continues…..

In 2016 it was time for “My Time” to have another change of scenery. She was relocated to a boat building workshop in Tabanan.  No small feat this boat moving business – requiring a crane to load her securely onto a truck ready for the journey to Tabanan . Which incidentally took place at 2 am to avoid any traffic issues

Once relocated safely to Tabanan “My Time’s” makeover continued

The mast had been removed for the journey so was reinstalled and set correctly on “My Time”.

The most challenging and perhaps the cause of most of the delays was the construction of the keel. A crucial piece of equipment, part of the puzzle. After much research, consultation and consideration a new lead filled stainless steel keel was made in a local steelworks and weighed in at 1000 KG

Part 2: “MY TIME” – The Seven Year Story from sunrise to sunset.

“My Time” – The Story continues…..

But there was more to “My Time” than being a display piece in the Bali Gardens Plaza. The time had come to continue bringing this beauty back to a life on the seas.

The original blue hull was painted, polished and buffed returning it to her original shining glory. With a length of 11.5 metres many man hours were spent to create the look that she truly deserved.

“MY TIME” – The Seven Year Story from sunrise to sunset.

Some years back there was a Hotel Manager who decided to purchase a yacht, well at least the hull of a yacht. He had a passion for sailing and an idea to share that passion and give Bali Garden guests the opportunity to sail the waters of Bali.

That year was 2012 !
“It will be easy” – they said !“It won’t take long” – they said !

However, with the benefit of hindsight and seven years, it seems that creating a work of art takes time: Rome was not built in a day . Bali Time !

Hassan, who has 30 years carpentry and boat experience was involved in the original build and is now a part of the Bali Garden team in our Engineering Department Continue reading

Ogoh – Ogoh Parade Kuta 2019

One day before Nyepi (Bali Silent Day), Pengerupukan Day, there was Ogoh-Ogoh parade at Jln. Pantai Kuta in the evening. The ogoh-ogoh are said to distract or capture evil spirits, effectively ‘cleansing’ the island for another year and then they are ceremoniously burned or destroyed.

Traffic stops on this roads during the event. There was 13 Ogoh-ogoh  standing on the street and be judged by all delegation from each hotel and Adat Kuta. Our Bali Garden staff and guests are also participating at this parade. A huge thank you to everyone who participated in this event.

 

Bali Silent Day 2019

Nyepi is a New Year celebration that will held on 7 March 2019, but it’s not the kind of party you’d expect—it’s pretty much the opposite. During this Bali Day of Silence, for 24 hours beginning at 6am, all normal activities cease.

Traffic stops on the Bali roads. Locals don’t venture outside of their area. No activities continue or ensue. Even lights are left off as it gets dark outside. Patrol men known as pecalang can be seen in the streets during Nyepi making sure the rules are followed and enforced. The day is taken very seriously!

The night before Nyepi, New Year’s Eve, is the complete opposite of the New Year Day, full of noise and celebration. Continue reading
