Having career in Bali indeed gives different impression to this woman born in South Jakarta, October 13. Her admiration for Balinese customs, arts and culture, made her excited when asked about Bali. Her name is Carolina who is currently busy performing her duties as Restaurant Manager at Shankara Resto & Bar.
Carolina said that at her workplace was always featuring and incorporating Balinese elements. “I like living in Bali because the atmosphere is different from the others. Therefore, I insert all Balinese elements in this restaurant, especially the menus here are mostly traditional,” said the woman who was familiarly called Carol.
Other than the menus, said Carolina, she also entered Balinese art such as dance appointed as local entertainment. “Bali has a lot of potentials. I always promote Bali, one of them is by presenting dance performance here and this is what I promote to colleagues. Not surprisingly, although in the new soft opening, so many guests have come,” she said.
Her love for Balinese culture made her love to learn about history. She also saluted to the people of Bali, especially in the rural areas who were still welcome and could maintain the customs. “In other areas, especially large cities, the customs have been slightly abandoned. Actually, as I learned, this custom has united Bali. I also apply similar thing at my workplace with employees. We go hand in hand and work well in a team,” she explained.
However, most regrettably, said Carolina, many migrants from outside Bali were not sensitive to Bali and even a Balinese. “I am often made upset to see people littering on the street. Actually, this can eventually damage the environment even become bad habits. As newcomer, tourists and visitors of Bali, we should keep the beauty of Bali, so that we can always enjoy the beauty in the future,” she advised. (BTN/ocha)
