It’s been almost a year ago when I left Bali but I will never forget the experiences I had there. I remember clearly more than two years ago when I received a confirmation that I will be placed in Bali, I googled for Adventist churches available in Bali.

There is not so many Adventist church in Bali, there were four established churches and several study group as I left last February 2010.

The Adventist churches I know are:

1. Gereja Advent Denpasar
2. Gereja Advent Hang Tuah
3. Gereja Advent Nusa Dua
4. Gereja Advent Singaraja

From the four SDA churches, I managed to visit three of them during my entire 20 months in Bali. I didn’t have a chance to visit to Singaraja church, although it’s supposedly the nearest church from Bali Camp.

So the following are the churches I’ve visited. Continue reading “Adventist Church(es) in Bali Quick Guide”

Journey To The West Bali (Gilimanuk and Menjangan)

 Bali Barat Spotlights

Though not as famous as the other part of Bali, the west side of Bali has a lot of things you can’t find in other side of Bali. Last week, me and other 19 of my work colleagues decided to explore this side for two days and we can’t be happier during the journey.

We started from Denpasar, visited Bunut Bolong (Pekutatan), stopped at Pura Rambut Siwi, stayed at Gilimanuk, snorkled and get sunburned at Menjangan Island, slapped by Ayam Betutu of Men Tempeh, and went back to Denpasar.

Want more of the details, read on… Continue reading “Journey To The West Bali (Gilimanuk and Menjangan)”

Where In Bali Is Bali Camp?

 Bali Camp Pacung Map and Address

Ok, if you ever visit the company website of Bali Camp, you might have several questions in mind such as:
– Is this really an office?
– Where are the offices, I only see huts?
– I thought Bali is all beach, why it’s like all mountain and valley in the picture?
– Where in Bali is it located?

Unfortunately I cannot answer all the questions this time but the last one.

Bali Camp is located at the heart of the island of Bali. Specifically, it’s located in Desa Pacung, Kecamatan Baturiti, Kabupaten Tabanan, propinsi Bali. Continue reading “Where In Bali Is Bali Camp?”

Meet The Designer of The Bali Camp Pacung Building


Still want to get more stories about Bali Camp Pacung marvelous building? Of course, it’s one building that won’t be easily forgotten once you’ve step your foot there. Though it’s not a hotel nor any recreation building, it can surely competes with the top hotel and bungalows in Bali.

Bali Camp Pacung Pictures – Day Edition

“But… not all that look good at night can look as good at daylight.”

Yes and the opposite is also true, some sites of Bali Camp Pacung look far better under sunlight rather than under artificial lights and so I uploaded several photos of Bali Camp Pacung under the sunlight.

Bali Camp Pacung building is basically a mix of traditional Bali living, surrounded by lush green fields of rice fields and clear blue skies, and comfortable modern facilities, such as open theatres and swimming pool.

I have yet to know if there is any other software house office in Indonesia that matches the beauty of Bali Camp Pacung. Continue reading “Bali Camp Pacung Pictures – Day Edition”

Playing Around With Comic Life


Just tried playing with the software Comic Life by plasq. It’s a really cool software to create comic effects of your pictures collection in just a few minutes. Really cool software, it’s a must for you who get bored with ordinary photos on your blog or social network websites.

Here I upload my first comic life result. It’s composed of three pictures when me and my work colleagues in Bali Camp went to Kuta last month.

First Three Days Experience at Balicamp Bali

Once again one of my dreams come true last Sunday when I and other 20 persons become the first batch that was sent to the Balicamp at Pacung, Bali.

It was not all sweet experience here though, chilling nights, ice water morning bath, great amount of hidden charges, and isolation far on top of the mountain are just some of the miseries we all experience here.

But when the time we went to Kuta beach, all of series of unfortunate events above are all forgotten.

This article is written to describe about the condition that we feel so far (three days far to be exact.. ;D) about our new work environment at the famous Balicamp. I try to be as objective as possible, though some subjectivities may still present. Continue reading “First Three Days Experience at Balicamp Bali”
