The increasingly tourism development makes many buildings were built uncontrolled. Many free-lands which were the wild animals such as rats are living are buildings now. Makes the rats attacking the ricefields. Many ricefields being damaged, also mine. Bad luck for many Balinese farmers. Someday the beautiful Bali will be a history if we don't take action, together controlling these. Common Balinese, united for better tomorrow.

The village Kul Kul, hanging in the tower of the village temple, will sound a certain beat to announce the departure of the deceased. The body of the deceased will be placed at Bale Delod, as if he were sleeping, and the family will continue to treat him as if he were still alive yet sleeping. No tears are shed, for he is only gone temporarily and he will reincarnate into the family.
The Priest consults the Dewasa to determine the proper day for the ceremony. On the day of the ceremony, the body of the deceased is placed inside a coffin which is then placed inside a sarcophagus in the form of a buffalo (called Lembu) or a temple structure called Wadah made of paper and light wood. The Wadah will be carried to the village cremation site in a procession.

Menjangan Island / Deer Island

Bali have many beautiful spot, it is just usual tourism spots such as Kuta Beach, Legian, Nusa DuaSanur, and Ubud that is already crowd by tourist. Bali has many beautiful tourism spots that are still quiet. An island at far northwestern Bali island that is called Menjangan Island. Menjangan means deer. The island is in protected position, currents and wind-generate waves are rarely a bother, and reefs here offer fine diving, particularly for beginning and intermediate divers. Surrounded by hectares of exellent coral reef. The island is a favorite destination for both snorkelers and divers. The water is very clear likes crystal; you can looks down the base of the sea. The island is part of Bali Barat National Park, a protected reserve area that encompasses much of Bali’s little populated western end. Driving from resort area to the south at least takes three hours.
It was in 1978 that Menjangan became Bali's first internationally known dive location. Consequently, in older dive guidebooks, Menjangan is described as having beautiful reef flats. Unfortunately that is no longer true. Over the years a combination of dynamite fishing and (dive!) boats anchoring into the coral have taken their toll. Then, in 1997 there was a population explosion of the coral-eating Crown of Thorns starfish and, in 1998, coral bleaching as a result of El Nino.
The coral walls around Menjangan are vertical down to 30 – 60 meters, and then slope outward. The reef surface is particularly rugged: caves, grottoes, crevasse and funnel-like splits break up the coral wall, and the surface is textured with little nooks and crannies. Gorgonians of many kinds reach large size here, and huge barrel sponges are abundant. Soft corals blanket the colorful walls all the way down.
There are found many variety of fish and very colorful. Apart from a high diversity of coral species and colorful, tropical fish there are many kinds of sea- and shorebirds frequenting the island. Also theHawkesbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) is sighted frequently in the area. Menjangan is often referred to as Deer Island as it is the habitat of the Barking Deer or Muntjac (Muntiacus muntjak). Visitors can regularly spot these deer at the secluded, sandy beaches of the island. The white sandy beaches of Menjangan s make a location pleasant to break itself for the lunch. Subaqueous, the slope throughout the border of the south and extremity of the east, doing in front of the sea of Bali, homemade being to the portions of fish and the colorful small vertebrates, the ventilators of embroider of the sea and a variety of sponges.
This place has 4 great dive sites:
1.       The Anker Wreck
2.       Garden Eel Point
3.       Pos II
4.       Pemuteran

What we can do to safe Balinese?

I am a Balinese but almost whole of my live is in out of Bali, after graduate from medical school in Jakarta I decided to work in Bali. I was about three years ago, the first time I know about Bali, the beauty makes I can’t leave Bali, the culture and society its comfort me, and Bali is the place where I found my first girl for my live.
I found Bali that’s full by foreigners; it is not just from another country but also from another islands in Indonesia. World are known Bali is a safe place that you can go around safely, but we also hear about a tourist losing their wallet in daylight because of motorcycle thieves, Japanese tourist being killed and rape on the street, villa robbery, etc. Now is very rare, tourist still safe going anywhere by them self safely, but if this community problem more often happen will be damage Bali tourism.
Foreigners are not also having their vacation in Bali. Most of businesses in Bali are running by foreigner. Very rare Balinese have there own business, they only being employees or worker. Balinese competitive levels are very low compare by foreigner, although there are also great successes Balinese. Many reason of it such as, community tough that do not need to take high degree, if you a male have a lot of land that’s enough just stay home, Balinese have a lot ceremony so will have lots of off days and many more. Balinese will be marginalize like Betawi people in Jakarta that being drive away from their land. Many Balinese are losing their land for build villa. In long run Balinese community will be destroyed and leaving to another island in Indonesia.
Sallow thought most of Balinese very damaged Balinese competitive level. Society said it is like a turtle. A turtle will pull down its friend above when climbing a rock, and pushing downs its friend below. So who will be on top? Jealousy is Balinese bad character.
There is many Balinese if they have their success, they will be arrogant and tread their worker. It is very bad, human resource is the most of company they have to realize it. This condition makes a bad competitive level of Balinese company compare from Foreigner Company.
Balinese must changes this character for increase their competitive level, they have to be a great educated, and have a wide knowledge. We must change Bali, we cannot blame foreigner for what happen now.
I am a doctor, I meet many people and as society “Guru” I always share this though to the society to safe Bali.
Dr. Agung

Bali is an island of God because we will find many temples in Bali, that's why also called as island of thousand temples. Difference place, difference culture, that's what happen in Bali because Balinese is formed by many sub ethnic. But mostly Bali have similarity in Hinduism culture, although, there is still a difference in making ritual ceremony in different places or districts.

The old ethnic of Bali is Baliaga, they are the first ethnic in Bali, before the Hindu Majapahit society came to Bali island from Java island as refugees when the war of Islamic kingdom expanding era. They have a unique culture of dance war and fighting, they called Makare-kare.  

Makare-kare is a originally Balinese Culture of Baliaga ethnic at Tenganan Village, Karangasem district. It is are the one of Bali attractive cultures. The attractive culture is war culture from Tenganan Village at Karangasemdistrict that given name Makare-kare. This sacred ritual culture held once a year at fifth month of Balinese calendar (around June or July). This ceremony called "Ngusamba". This war ritual to test the bravely and endurance of men of this village.

The fight uses a Panda-nus leaf plant. Nobody is harmed in this fight as it is just for fun, laughing, and brotherhood. Yes they bleed because of the panda-nus leaf scratch their body, but it is just superficial. They also have their own medication, an ancient medicine in yellow color given name "Boreh". This war ritual is from Hindupre-history of Bali.

So only the ancient ethnic Balinese: "Baliaga" have this ritual ceremony. Begin with two sacred dances: Abwang dance and Rejang dance. when the men starting to fight the women go to the village temple for praying. In this ceremony they using their sacred textiles "Geringsing". This ceremony starting from tenth in the morning to ninth at the evening and closing by Rejang dance at the village temple.
