People believe that Petitenget Temple is inhabited by Buto Ijo spirit. The temple established to venerate the ancient sage Danghyang Dwijendra poses a Dang Khayangan temple located in the southern part of Bali, exactly at Kerobokan customary village, North Kuta subdistrict, Badung. Aside from becoming a spiritual tourist attraction, the area also poses an attraction offering white sandy beach. Temple priest Jero Mangku Nyoman Sendra said that before the temple was founded, the area was named alas tenget in Balinese language, or literally meant ‘haunted forest.’
Until now, said Sendra, there were people who did not dare to take or even cut down trees haphazardly at the location. Moreover, they wanted to enter the temple without permission. “This location is magic and haunted. People believed the existence of the temple is inhabited by the powerful Buto Ijo spirit,” he said. Approximately in 2010, said Sendra, there was a worker from the Culture and Tourism Agency cutting down a tropical almond tree in the area without permission. At that time, he suddenly fell ill and died. “Anyone wishing to cut down a tree here should ask for permission first. For example, it is carried out with presentation of pejati offering. Here, the trees that can be cut are only the old and dangerous for visitor,” he explained.
Chefs of Bali were following a contest for their skill in preparing Balinese mixed seasoning known as base gede in the Nusa Dua Fiesta (NDF). The competition was followed by 10 participants with duration of one hour. Each participant was required to prepare base gede from the selection of ingredients, processing to become one kilogram of base gede. All participants were given the freedom to determine the amount and type of ingredients used, but should be weighed by digital scale before the making. “It is a measure we determine, so that in the future can be used as a reference by younger chefs and the community,” said Chairman of the Committee doubling as Chairman of the ICA Bali, Komang Adi Arsana.
Some artists painting on beautiful women’s body became an interesting spectacle in the arena of Nusa Dua Fiesta (NDF), Saturday (Nov 16). With the theme Wana Lelanguan meaning forest conservation, painters expressed their artistic ideas on the whole body of cute girls. Some painted trees, leaves, tiger, eagle, snake and diversity of marine life with alluring colors. The models appearing in the event entitled Body Painting amounted to 33 people. They consisted of 17 local models from Bali and 6 other foreign models from Russia, Germany and other countries. Similarly, the painters came from different schools of background and it was also enlivened by foreign artists.
The Bali Tourism Institute (STP) Nusa Dua powered by Travel Business Management Department of Generation 2010 organized a tourism activity in the form of Travel Fair. Such travel exchange was the first of its kind providing an opportunity for general public and the students of STP Nusa Dua in particular to get information on travel packages of Indonesia and Asia. Designed in traditional decor with the usage of bamboo and plaited coconut leaf, the event could present a unique tourism promotion starting from the nature tourism, cultural heritage, special interest or various man-made tourist destinations in Bali, Indonesia and Asia. On that occasion, the committee provided the participants with 15 booths offering various tour packages. The tourism event was opened by Deputy Chairman III of STP Nusa Dua, AM Nur Nasution, Tuesday (Nov 19). Aside from showcasing the tourism products made of the companies themselves, the event taking place over two days (Nov 19-20) was also graced by cultural ambassador contest and modern-culture dance competition.
Behind the widespread development of hotel and restaurant business in Bali, in fact, the jar business also begins to draw the interests of foreign tourists. Even, the jar commonly just functioning to hold drinking water, rice and ritual paraphernalia becomes an attractive ornament for foreign tourists that will be used for decorations such as flower pots, flower vases or just put as indoor or outdoor decoration. A jar showroom entrepreneur of Duuran Gemilang, I Wayan Wirthawan, became interested in developing jar business in Bali. According to him, the business pioneered in 2004 with family was considered rare because it could still be counted on fingers. “In the first year, we only the sold ready-to-use jars and the buyers were still around local community. Then, in harmony with the passage of time, we started our self-production and did promotion not only locally but also abroad,” he said friendly.
