New Bali governor Wayan Koster inaugurated There has officially been a change in power now that Bali’s new governor, Wayan Koster, and his deputy, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati aka ‘Cok Ace’ were sworn in by Indonesian President Joko Widodo this morning. The Koster-Ace duo were inaugurated along with eight other Indonesian province governors at the State Palace in Jakarta. The inauguration comes ahead of schedule. It was originally slated for Sept. 17, but Jokowi decided to expedite it, with the announcement for the change in plans only abruptly coming out on Monday. “I thank the people of Bali for their support. We hope that the cooperation will continue and we will facilitate the space for it,” Koster said after being sworn in, as quoted by Bali Post. Running on the PDIP ticket–the same party as the president–Koster and Ace defeated Golkar party running rival Rai

anticipate the emergence of new problems and challenges facing Bali that will impact future generations.

Koster takes the place of two-term Bali governor, Made Mangku Pastika, who had held the office for 10 years (two consecutive terms).

The governor went on to talk about his formulated approach of “1 island, 1 pattern, and 1 familiar governance.”

Like any freshly elected official, the governor emphasized that there will be many things his administration will work to make better, including “improvements in transportation and infrastructure.” Koster said his vision for his five-year term can be broken down into three main themes. First, balancing humans and nature, along with Balinese culture (can’t get much more Balinese than that, eh?). Second, meeting the needs, hopes, and aspirations of the Balinese in various aspects of life (yeah, not vague at all). And third, being sufficiently ready to

Priority areas for development are broken down into five main categories says Koster: food, clothing, and shelter, health & education, social security and employment, religion, customs, traditions, arts & culture, and the biggie, tourism. One of his first orders of business as governor will be putting IDR258 billion (US$17.3 million) into building shortcuts on the Mengwitani-Singaraja route in 2019. (coconuts.co)

Oh hey Outpost Canggu, look who’s made the leap from the hillside to the beach side - FINALLY! That’s right, Ubud is taking yet another hit in our books as their beloved #1 coworking slash coliving space has opened up their second Bali branch right here in Berawa. No more treks to the mountains in search for epic workshops, wave goodbye to pangs of jealousy at your hillbilly friends and their perfect little coworking bubble, and say hello to Outpost Canggu! If you’re anything like us and spend half the day glued to your screens (and the other half glued to happy hour margaritas đ&#x;?¸ ), you’ll want to listen up. Outpost offers an entirely new level of professionalism where coworking is concerned, though the yoga loft and on-

Where coworking spaces are concerned, we’ve done it all; hopped through the over-populated coworking hot spots, fought over electric plugs in AC cooled cafes and spent waaaay too much time in the un-ergonomic comfort of our beds. We’ve been annoyed at the loud Instagrammers nearby chatting at each other in hashtags, and more commonly, we’ve been those people (#amirite?!). We believe that balance is key, and balance can sometimes be hard to find in our little Canggu bubble. Well not anymore! Imagine a pin-drop-silent room with full AC, and contrast that with the fancooled area for those of us that are more sociable at work. Think of lightning-fast WIFI connections, with comfy couches to switch off on. Soundproof Skype booths and airy meeting rooms. Imagine work-workwork upstairs, and coffee-pool-chill downstairs. Picture yourself attending a Life Design Lab in the day time, and sipping Gin & Tonic’s with the same group at sunset. Get us a slice of that balance already! Oh, did we mention Life Design Lab? This 2-week Outpost programme is literally a life changer for any of you needing a little nudge in the right direction. Designed for the digitally

nomadic inclined of you out there, Life Design Lab guides you through several steps of personal development weather you’re itching to do something constructive on your Bali break, looking to re-evaluate specific career goals or well and truly lost in life, this series of workshops is the perfect fit for you. The courses run a couple of times a year, and we’re itching to sign up for the next one (August 20th, ladies and gentlemen, still time!) The coworking hub that is Outpost Canggu is well and truly thriving, with new members taking advantage of the early bird special for monthly unlimited memberships. Though the coliving quarters in Canggu are still a ways off, and the cafe downstairs is yet to serve up brain-food - the coffee is strong, the wifi stronger and that’s all we really need in this life. P.S. We’ve heard rumours of people who actually enjoy balancing the good times in the Gu with a little Om in Ubud. Though we cannot back up claims of these unicorns actually existing, we can confirm that the monthly unlimited membership does cover both locations, should you wish to foray into the wilderness.
