SANUR VILLAGE FESTIVAL 2019

We will welcome the 14th Annual Sanur Village Festival 2019. For the Bali and Indonesia tourism calendar, August is the month for Sanur community’s festival.

In its 14th year, Sanur Village Festival will feature the theme Dharmaning Gesing – the glorifying of bamboo, which reflects the Balinese appreciation on bamboo’s role in the daily life. It is used in religious ceremonies and an important element in building architecture, so the festival explores bamboo as part of Sanur community’s spirit of creativity. The awareness of its existence is hoped to encourage togetherness and sense of family, respect and protecting the environment and inspire the community creativity.

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

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
