    Tower of Beer, Unseen in Seminyak! 

    I keep hearing that Bali’s Seminyak is going ‘downmarket,’ becoming more like Kuta and/or Legian, but since I’m not snobby I went there last time I stopped off in The Isle of The Gods, and happed upon this place, the Aviary Resto. 


    It’s located at Jalan Kayu Aya and if you want to call ahead, the number is(0361) 732512
    It’s a pleasant enough place but what made it notable, to me, was one of its menu items, viz.
    Tower of Beer, six bottles, Rp.200,000 – in other words, buy five, get one free.


     A similar, larger tower, more than six bottles for sure!


    The waiter politely apologised when we ordered said ‘tower,’ saying the beer was available but it had not that day been constructed into a tower. We assured him that, since it was our immediate intention to dismantle the edifice, he need not fear incurring our displeasure.

    Oh, yes. Another good thing about the Aviary is – Fish n chips for Rp.45,000.

    Bali Hoodlums Attack Aussies – Cops Do What?!!! 



    A shocking story from Bali, just hitting the news but kept hush-hush for some time, it seems, where a gang of thugs viciously attacked Australian tourists, who had organized a private event at an upmarket Seminyak restaurant and hired a stripper for the party

    After the stripper began her performance, security guards stormed in and allegedly used Taser weapons against the Australians, as well as beating them with guns and bottles. : http://nie.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/06/25/no-drop-aussie-visits-bali-despite-difficult-relations.html  

    Then the hoodlums called the cops! Who, allegedly in collaboration with the crims, dragged the Melbourne men off and locked them up.

    • My initial comment would be that the thugs are unlikely to be Balinese, who appreciate tourism’s importance and are therefore mostly nice. A lot of low-class jobs there are filled by people from other islands, often Java. The cops, however, will be locals, so what the hell would they gain from such gross misconduct?

    • The JP report says the Melbourne men were forced to attend ATMs and withdraw millions, under threat of charges of indecency – a ten year sentence, they were told!

    I’d say it’s the ‘security’ scum who ought to be facing charges.  Beatings and taserings are not petty offences; permits to carry guns are not normally issued to mere security goons.





    The police on the Isle of the Gods have pledged an investigation, but regardless of their officers’ role it is vital that the ‘security guards’ involved be arrested and held.  It is important that swine like that are not on the loose to molest other innocent tourists.

    Oh, and BTW, what’s the diplomatic corps got to hide? …the Australian Consulate General in Bali and the embassy in Jakarta both refused to comment on the incident.
