News from the last paradise on earth where Wimbledon of Asia is located

Hi, all posters! I will be flying out tomorrow to Bali at 11 AM from Jakarta...I have the privilege that I was offered by Wismilak OC to have press ID based on my continuous writing independently in the national newspaper and local tennis tabloid. Therefore, I will have the chance to witness all the drawing process, attend presscons, do interviews with players etc etc...

In particular, I will provide news to Angie Widjaja's website as I have started with my English article in its feature about Jelena Jankovic...

The press room has been moved near the center court so that press mosquitos can have an easy access to cover from time to time...

Wismilak Int'l has been nicknamed as "Wimbledon of Asia" based on its great services to players, fans and medias...

It is always great to be back in my hometown of Denpasar seeing families, play tennis on grass courts in sunny and breezy Nusa Dua and have fun with good friends in "happening" Kuta area...

Bali rocks again and again!!!

On The Air To Bali And Safely Arrived

I left my house at 8 AM through short cut to go to Jakarta Int'l Airport and I got to the terminal at 8.40 AM. I immediately approached the check-in counter of Indonesia Air Asia ( it is a Malaysian company) or the equivalent of People's Express in the US...It was my 1st time ever to fly IAA...it was quite an experience...the cost was 50 US dollars round trip which I reserved over a month ago...The boarding was slightly late and eventually, the 737-300 took off at 11.50...Maybe the pilot felt guilty coz he was running off the exact departure time...hahaha...he flew as if he was Michael Schumacher...Yes, we got to Ngurah Rai Int'l Airport, out of Denpasar, Bali at 14.15 local time (one hour different, ahead of Jakarta)...Great to breathe Bali's air...The flight was full indeed...very international flavor...Japanese, Germans, British, OZs, Chinese...Outside the arrival terminal, I met Angie's coach who was waiting for Angie Widjaja's arrival...Finally, with friends - we cruised like Raikkonen to the venue at Grand Hyatt, Nusa Dua...On the way to the committee's room - I saw Todd Woodbridge from a distance and I called out his name then he waved me back..Oh, boy...I saw a bunch of gals...Yay...Septi Mende, Lee Wei Ping who became like Bo Derek or Vee Williams in terms of hairstyle, Sandy Gumulya, Lavinia Tananta, Lutfiana, Jessy Rompies, Beatrice Gumulya...Then, I went to the press room to obtain my press ID...The whole thing is great at the venue...I checked out the list of arrivals...Gee, Ana Ivanovic brought many luggages...BTW, Lindsay has arrived...Sveta will be in later...I am still waiting for the qual draw...That's all for now!!! Later, guys! Yay, um writing from the press room...

Could you please do me one favour while your covering the Bali tournement. Could you please write more than a few lines on any of Lindsay matches even during the earier rounds. I love reading reports about Lindsay matches that are a paragraph long at best and while you at it have a great time too. I've heard bali is a great place to visit.
