Covid-19: Bali after recent long holiday

intentionally
狄更斯在《双城记》中描写法国大革命时,距离事件发生已有近一个世纪。而我则是在今年12月就回顾盘点这一年。因此,我在此描述的某些趋势,可能将在可预见的未来继续存在,而另一些趋势则可能已经开始减弱。作为当今时代“最哗众取宠的权威人士”之一,我只要求各位在阅读这篇评论文章时记住一点:过去的业绩并不能保证将来的表现。
今年年初,所有华尔街经济学家都呼吁提高利率,彭博社就这个问题调查了67位经济学家的意见,他们全票赞同,有鉴于此,任何一个有理性的人都不会想要增持对利率敏感的公用事业股。把赌注押在金融股上的投资者,回报进展缓慢;而瞅准了“低价”能源股的投资者,投资组合业绩在第一和第二季度曾因此推高,却在第三和第四季度被大拖后腿,可谓“成也萧何,败也萧何”。
The highest average monthly salary for 2016 graduates is 5693 Yuan in IT/Internet/telecommunications/electronics industries; second is financial industry and culture/sports/entertainment/media industries with average salaries level of 4685 Yuan and 4552 Yuan respectively; monthly salaries in agricultural/forest/grassland farming/fishing, and services/ educational sports/industrial arts are relatively low among signed graduates, respectively are 3500 Yuan, 3873 Yuan and 3900 Yuan.
Goldie Blox is a toy company on a mission to redefine the “pink aisle” in toy stores. Men dramatically outnumber women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and careers, with girls largely losing interest in these topics by age 8. Goldie Blox toys are designed to inspire future engineers by engaging girls in a way that draws on their strong verbal and storytelling skills — while still offering opportunities to build the skills that can later translate into an interest in engineering. And speaking of opportunity, how does a start-up toy company stand out against the big names that have been dominating the toy space since the beginning of time? In a savvy move, Goldie Blox recently released a video that went viral with their take on the Beastie Boys song “Girls.” Though the video was ultimately taken down, Goldie Blox did an excellent job raising awareness of the need to get more women and girls interested in STEM … and of the Goldie Blox toys.

Regardless of whether or not you think Snapchat is worth the $3 billion Facebook offered it, one thing is clear: There's an appetite out there for so-called ephemeral networks, where content literally vanishes seconds after being received. And, contrary to popular perception, this isn't just about sexting and X-rated selfies (though it definitely is about that, too). As content on the major networks becomes more corporate and commoditized, Snapchat and services like it restore some of the fun and spontaneity to social media. Just like a real-life interaction -- where ideas flow freely and you generally don't worry about everything being recorded for posterity and broadcast to the world -- SnapChat and networks like it offer a channel for genuine, unfiltered exchange. And the kids really like it. While Facebook's own CFO officially acknowledged last month that teen use of his network is declining, the number of teens on SnapChat -- at least anecdotally -- is exploding.

The Managing Director of The Nusa DuaI Gusti Ngurah Ardita explained to the media on Monday (2/11), by the end of October 2020, the average room occupancy rate at ITDC reached 8.71%, almost doubled the occupancy rate in September which was only 4.63%. Between 27 to 30 October 2020, The Nusa Dua's average daily room occupancy rate was even higher, from 13% to 23.5%. This figure was the highest so far since the pandemic hit Bali in March 2020. "Since the island reopened for domestic tourist on 31 July 2020, the tourism business at The Nusa Dua has started to improve gradually. We are very grateful for this amazing progress," said Ardita.

Visitors to Bali have doubled on the first day of national holiday

29 October 2020 - Bali airport had received more than 6000 domestic tourists in one day (27/10), this is the highest number since the last seven months. Normally, there were about 3000 visitors landed daily in Ngurah Rai International Airport since the island opened its border for domestic tourists on 31 July 2020. So far, things have gone well, even much better than some pessimistic predictions which only 10% raise from the daily visit rates. "We estimate there might be up to 10% increase of domestic tourists will come during the long holiday, compared to the current daily average. But we will see it again later, as there is no significant improvement happened til now, "said Andanina Dyah Permata Megasari, the Communication and Legal Manager of Bali airport earlier on Tuesday (27/10).


Later on that day, the airport recorded 6,305 passengers had arrived via the domestic terminal, by Tuesday evening, 27 October 2020. This number has increased by 25% compared to the number of arrivals on Monday, 26 October 2020, with 5,047 passengers. The flights are mostly dominated from the Jakarta routes, either from Soekarno-Hatta Airport or Halim Perdanakusuma. Tourists from Surabaya, Makassar, and Lombok are also can be found on the island during this holiday season. 


Still, according to Andanina, the airport authority has prepared several procedures to anticipate the possibility of delay and cancel flights, due to the bad weather conditions. Furthermore, the number of officers-on-duty have been increased to supervise the implementation of health protocols and promoting #safetravel campaign. They will inspect every area in the airport to encourage people wearing mask, wash hand regularly and keep a safe distance. Bali provincial government also has placed hundreds of officers from the National Search and Rescue Agency (BASARNAS) in several points on the island, Gilimanuk Harbour, Kuta, Legian, Tanah Lot and many more. To avoid traffic congestion, the Bali Transportation Department (Dishub) has assigned hundreds of officers to solve traffic problems that may occur in some areas during the holiday. All of these efforts will be continuously applied until the end of the holiday season on 1 November 2020.

This operation is scheduled from 26 October to 8 November 2020. Traffic polices on every region in the country, including Bali, will stand-by on the roads and give penalties to those who are not following the rules. Authority aims to improve the traffic discipline of the community amid the Covid-19 Pandemic.


Unlike other places in Indonesia, Bali's traffic is somewhat less controlled. Foreign tourists are easily rent a scooter from a rental and ride the engine recklessly; some even don't possess experiences on riding two-wheelers before. Underaged locals are also easily be found riding a scooter while joking around and not wearing helmets. All these and the condition of the roads in Bali are the perfect combination for unfortunate incidents. The number of reported traffic accidents in Bali is 1,350 cases from January 2020 to September 2020; it is a serious problem. To learn about essential information on driving in Bali read here.

However, you may find a group of polices do the checking in other places as they got many reports of violations on specific areas.

You know the old guy who's been at the company forever and still can't figure out email? If you don't get up to speed on social media in 2014, you'll be that guy.

"We are seeing an increased demand for social savvy candidates across the business -- from human resources to product to customer service, " Amy Crow, Indeed's communication director told Quartz earlier this year. Not only are departments like marketing, sales, and customer service expected to be on Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook, teams as diverse as R&D, logistics, and HR are increasingly using internal networks like Yammer to streamline operations. Social media has grown so critical to the workplace, in fact, that major universities are beginning to offer certificate programs for socially inept corporate types to get up to speed.

Bali Covid-19 vaccine likely available by early 2021

8 October 2020 - Indonesia is making very good progress in terms of vaccine development for Coronavirus pandemic. Mr President Joko Widodo has signed and issued a Presidential Decree No. 99/2020 on 5 October 2020 at Jakarta; this regulation explains about the roles of the Health Ministry in provisioning, distribution and manage the whole vaccination process in the country. The decree also assigns state-owned pharmaceutical company PT Bio Farma to procure the vaccine in cooperation with other international institutions. However, before massively distributed to everyone in the country; medical workers, military and law enforcement personnel, will be prioritized for vaccination. 


Luckily, Bali has been chosen as one of the first regions in Indonesia to receive the first badge of vaccines once available. A simulation for Covid-19 vaccination was conducted in Bali’s state-own health clinic Puskesmas Abiansemal I for two days, 5-6 October 2020. This simulation aims to test the procedures and to prepare medical workers for the actual event most likely by the early of 2021. All things went well during the trial; all authorities are optimistic that Bali will be a good sample for other regions in Indonesia.

One step closer to providing clean energy for Bali

1 October 2020 - Good news, the governor of Bali, I Wayan Koster announced a new regional general energy policy and planning (RUED) at Denpasar on Monday, 28 September 2020. This regulation mainly intended to control the current energy management while gradually switching to cleaner and nature-friendly energy sources.

Today, Bali still depends on the supply from outside channel like Paiton-East Java for the extra of 340 MW, due to local energy plants from Buleleng, Jembrana and Denpasar only produce 921.2 MW; while the island needs at least 1,261.2 MW and could be more during high-season travel on July and December. If the authority doesn't make a significant breakthrough soon, Bali certainly will suffer an energy crisis by 2021. To date, many people in secluded areas in Bali still struggling to get a decent electricity supply due to very limited sources and the minimum availability of electricity infrastructure as the geographical conditions of the island are mostly mountainous and coastal areas.

Corona Updates: Bali after one-month opens for domestic travellers

1 September 2020 - It's been a month since Bali implemented the second phase of new-normal life protocols at the end of July. So far, there are more than 3000 domestic tourists (on-average) have landed in Bali airport every day, explained Wayan Koster, the governor of Bali to Balipost on 31 August 2020. However, this good news turns out has not significantly affected the occupancy rates on Bali hotels in general; as the visitors' number is relatively low compared to the total number of hotel rooms in Bali which is more than 130,000.

The deputy chief of the Indonesian Hotel General Manager Association in Bali,  I Made Ramia Adnyana has expressed his concern over the plan of the Indonesia central government to keep the border close for the rest of 2020. "...with another four to five months to go, we are not sure how Bali tourism industry will be able to survive until the beginning of 2021," he said. Covid-19 has caused many Balinese workers in tourism industries losing their jobs; most of them are forced to go back to their villages to do farming or fishing only to survive.

Foreign tourists may not be able to visit Bali until the end of 2020

14 August 2020 - Bali Provincial Government has informed their plans on reopening Bali for international tourists on 11 September 2020. However, this hope of an early reopening seems to fade when the central government through the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Pandjaitan dropped the statement that Indonesia is going to need more time to reopen again, at least until the end of this year. Luhut explained this update during a virtual meeting among the entrepreneurs of the Indonesian Employers' Association (Apindo) on Thursday, 13 August 2020.

At the moment, all the travel and hospitality business owners are expected to focus on marketing their services to domestic travellers and upgrading the facilities based on the new-normal health protocols. "We expect 70% of domestic tourists. So we think that foreign tourists will not be able to travel until the end of the year. Let us first consolidate ourselves," said Luhut. 

The head of Bali tourism office, I Putu Astawa also explained that - the decision on reopening the country is not only determined by the central government, but this is also related to other countries' policies. Even if Indonesia has opened the borders to international tourists, but on the other hand, other countries have not allowed their residents to leave their countries, then it's pointless.

People also start visiting some beaches which “un-officially” re-opened by the local communities; even though the governor of Bali had emphasized that all tourist attractions should not be opened by now as the central government has not granted the permission. This situation is very understandable as people have been staying in their home for so long, and it is undoubtedly affecting their mental health.

Normally there are at least 20 million people from Greater Jakarta (including Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi), the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia, travel to their hometowns to celebrate Idul Fitri together with family.

Bali tourism recovery program is expected to be started by the end of 2020

22 April 2020 - Covid19 is probably the worst thing ever happened to Bali’s tourism businesses in history. The damage caused by this pandemic is way more terrible than other tragedies such as Bali bombings and Mt. Agung eruption. When Bali experienced the bombing tragedies in 2002 and 2005 the hotel occupancy rates were plunged down at 20 percent, while during the eruption of Mt. Agung the occupancy rates of all accommodation in South Bali were still at 60 percent - as the red (dangerous) zone is only 12 KM from the crater. But these days, the hotel occupancy rates are even lower than 10 percent, which is followed by more than a million people who work in tourism sectors losing their job. The head of Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association or PHRI Badung IGA Rai Suryawijaya mentioned "Since April, almost 96 percent of hotels (in Bali) have closed, because there are no more tourist visits, the number will even continue to increase to 100 percent, because existing tourists will need to go back to their home countries". 

However, almost all of the members of Indonesia Hotel and Restaurant Association in Bali agreed with the Government’s decision to focus on handling COVID-19. "We are currently in a crisis situation, what we need to focus on right now is to get all the people contracted by COVID-19 a proper health care. So that people can calm down, and continue to their normal life soon, "  Added IGA Rai Suryawijaya. 

Nonetheless, IGA Rai Suryawijaya also mentioned about the recovery program for Bali tourism businesses is expected to be started by the end of the year. He hopes that Bali tourism can be reopened to tourists at Christmas and the new year 2021. Moreover, Indonesian President Joko Widodo has also stated that the tourism business will surely  return to normal again in 2021. Tourists will be most likely to increase their vacation time after being bored at home during the COVID pandemic quarantine.

8 April 2020 - After being viral on many media for the last couple days, finally the plan for ‘Sipeng Nyepi’ (18, 19, 20 April) initiated by Bali Customary Village Council is officially being cancelled. This discourse has caused many pros and cons among all communities in Bali, some people considered it is not right to call this event as ‘Nyepi’, while others think that it will be in-effective since the airport will remain open during those 3 days, and other sensitive reasons related to those who are working as a daily worker, worry about the basic supply for the family during the Nyepi. "There is no longer ‘Bali Sipeng’, but we advise all Balinese people to do ‘Yasa Kerthi’, silence, stay in their homes, unless there is an urgent matter," said the head of Bali Customary Village Council.

In the meeting between PHDI (The highest religious constitution in Bali) and MDA (Bali Customary Village Council) held today in Denpasar, other points were also discussed related to ‘Peneduh Jagat’ ceremony which will be held at Mother Temple Besakih on 22 April. This ceremony will be attended by limited participants only, all the Balinese are expected to do the ceremony in their own house and keep staying at home.

Another plan for “Nyepi” on 18,19 and 20 April will be discussed by Bali Customary Village Council and related authorities

7 April 2020 - Some media online and Bali local television channels have announced the plan on having a Nyepi for another 3 days this month on 18,19 and 20 April. However the head of Bali Customary Village Council, Ida Panglingsir Agung Putra Sukahet has informed that this is not final yet. "That's still only a plan. We need to discuss this matter further on April 8th, and we will decide later. If so, of course, there will be an official circular letter from the Bali Customary Village Council," he added.

For your information that this Nyepi will be different from the regular Nyepi all Balinese people celebrate every year. This upcoming Nyepi is called ‘Sipeng Nyepi’ or ‘Eka Brata Penyepian (amati lelulungan)’ which means the only restriction is not allowed to go outside the house. Everyone will be still able to do normal activities, while sending prayers to God at home with electricity and internet service within these 3 days. 

Furthermore, Ida Penglingsir Agung Putra Sukahet also mentioned that this plan also can be considered as an alternative discourse in mitigating the spread of coronavirus outbreak in Bali. Among spiritual leaders these 3 days will be also giving a chance to ‘Bhuta’ (evil spirit) to become harmony 'somya'. By knowing this information days ahead, all the people in Bali are expected to be able to buy some basic needs more wisely without having to cause "panic buying" in prior days before Nyepi.

Government Waives Income Taxes for Six Months to support Economy during Covid-19 Crisis

(Jakarta March 12th 2020)

Finance Minister of Indonesia Sri Mulyani Indrawati announced that Indonesia will grant a six-month tax break for employees, manufacturers, and importers, starting as soon as next month (April), as part of its second fiscal stimulus to help support and stimulate the economy which has been strongly afected by the corona outbreak crisis.

She said the government would suspend collecting employees' income taxes, also known as PPh 21. The ministry's tax office would waive the income tax paid monthly (PPh 25) by entrepreneurs in the manufacturing sectors.

Indonesia and particularly Bali, whose economy depends on tourism has been hit hard by the corona crisis. The shutdown of China stopped all visitors coming from China. The Chinese tourists are now the largest group, while the Australians are now second.

The minister has earlier projected that the largest economy in Southeast Asia could see its growth slowing down to 4.70 percent this quarter, from the 4.97 percent pace in the last quarter as the Covid-19 outbreak disrupted China's economy, Indonesia's largest trading partner. The country has so far 34 confirmed cases of the corona, with one fatality which occurred in Bali.

Also, Indonesia's stock market stopped trading for 30 minutes on Thursday 13th March, the first time since the market installed the 5 percent circuit breaker to slow panic selling amid worries of a widespread Covid-19 outbreak in the country.
