Bali Life. Part 3

Bali, what does it stand for?

Ba… bannyak Li… libur. Banyak Libur means many, or lots of vacations/holidays. This has been a joke among the locals because there are so many Balinese holiday ceremonies. If it is not the major holidays it could be smaller local ceremonies. These ceremonies can be blocking or shutting down streets. They can also close down entire areas.  

This time is also a great opportunity to take some photos of the processions and gatherings. Please do this with respect and admiration rather than trying to get the perfect Instagram photo.  

Once more this is adaptation and a sense of belonging. Once you understand that you are a foreigner here you will fit in much nicer.  

The Bali Life. Peace 

All places welcome locals and foreigners alike. If you are green, you will be taken advantage of. If you are unsure, hang back and reassess the situation. There are good and bad people all over the world.  

If you choose to be stupid you will get taken advantage of. I am sure it is a game for some to see what they can get away with. Don’t be too overwhelmed and don’t be too anxious.  

The key to the Balinese is peace and patience. Smile often, speak nicely and you will be rewarded. If you tip extra, you will be rewarded even further.  

Go about your business. Be kind.  

This is something that should not need to be addressed but it must be. I have said this before but kindness goes a long way. Most local people will be respectful. They know that the Bule people may be lost, excited or ignorant of certain things.  

In traffic, often locals will wave, smile, interact with you. They are happy to see you because you are their next meal. Not as in cannibalism but the tourism business. The Jet-ski rental, the small shop, restaurants, the hotels, villas and the malls where you will be supporting the local economy.  

Many foreigners do not realize that there isn’t much industry on the island. One thing to keep in mind is that the roads appear busy. The roadsides are filled with shops and small manufacturing facilities. However, if you zoom out on google maps along the roads you will see empty land. Except for small pockets of population, outside of Denpasar most areas behind the busy shops are empty.  

Off the Beaten Path. Go Explore! 

Everyone wants to go off and explore. With the advent of social media, everyone wants something unique. The coolest photo to get the most likes.  

There are numerous opportunities for everyone to get the best photo and experience to go with the photo. Remember it is not expensive to get a local guide. Get yourself a local person, preferably Balinese. Take my advice on this… Get a local guide, do some research and make sure they are reputable and up to the same adventure that you are looking for. Remember to consult with people. This goes for lawyers, doctors, hospitals, real estate or property purchases. Get yourself some assistance and you will be happier exploring Bali, Island of the Gods.

Published by Zsolt Zsemba

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
