Doing the Advanced Open Water in Tulamben: A Review!

Doing the Advanced Open Water in Tulamben: A Review!

When you think about Tulamben, Bali, you might think about the world-famous USAT Liberty Wreck, incredible snorkeling, and easy dive sites with rewarding experiences around the village. But do you know that the Tulamben is also an excellent diving spot in Bali to get your Advanced Open Water Certification?

The Advanced Open Water certification meant to help you improve your diving skills, so you can begin soon after getting your PADI Open Water Diver certification. Through various Adventure Dives, the course helps you gain confidence and expand your dive skills. Under the guidance of our PADI Instructor, you try out different specialties while gaining expertise. You log dives and improve your skills as you discover new ways to enjoy scuba diving. So, you’ll want to have your Advanced certification in a place where the dive site is reliable but challenging enough to get you beyond the beginner level. That’s why Tulamben is perfect and here’s our experience of getting my Advanced Open Water in Tulamben. Read on!

What to Expect from Advanced Open Water Diving in Tulamben

You studied the fundamentals of scuba diving in Open Water. You will improve your skills and learn how to think and act like a diver in this development course. Under the guidance of an instructor, you can get more experience, continue your diving education, and try out other dive specialties.

Five adventure dives make up the PADI Advanced Open Water Course. The first dive of a specialty course is an adventure dive. With a wide range of PADI specialty courses to choose from, the Advanced Course will introduce you to the vast array of different forms of diving available. In Tulamben, you will have five dives for the Advanced adventures.  The first two are deep dive to thirty meters and an underwater navigation dive, and after completing them then you can choose three dives from PADI’s adventure set.

First: Fun Scuba Diving in the USAT Liberty Tulamben

Fun Scuba Diving in the USAT Liberty Tulamben

The Tulamben’ Liberty shipwreck is the most well-known diving site in this part of Bali. The USAT Liberty wreck was the main attraction for me, so seeing it on my first dive was a dream come true. Because there is so much of the ship to examine, this wreck has really put Tulamben on the map. The Liberty is nearly 400 feet long, and because of its location on a sandy slope, it can be explored at depths ranging from 25 to 100 feet. The 400-foot-long deck, which would normally be festooned with navigational equipment, communications towers, and a spider web of cables, is the most noticeable feature of the Liberty because it was a transport ship. But you don’t have to deal with all of that because the ship was largely dismantled by American forces and Balinese workers, thus the deck is basically safe.

We stayed in the shallow parts for my dive because there was plenty of light from the surface. It was still a really perplexing sensation, and I couldn’t tell which way was up because the ship was standing on its end.

Ps: You can even snorkel here as this Tulamben dive site is very appropriate for beginners!

Second: The Navigational Dive in Tulamben

The next dive in Tulamben is very important and would feel more like a course rather than an adventure. To be a confident diver, you must first learn how to navigate in the strange environment of the underwater—where your landmarks are mostly corals—and keep track of your position. It’s not fun to finish a dive only to realize you’ve wandered a hundred yards from the boat or the beach. To navigate underwater, acquaint yourself with a map of the dive location and pencil in the path you’ll be traveling ahead of time. Only a dive compass and the ability to count are required to follow that path. The compass will tell you which way to go, and counting your flipper kicks will tell you how far you’ve travelled.

Third: Deep Diving in USAT Liberty Tulamben

Deep Diving in USAT Liberty Tulamben

A dive down to 30 meters is required for the Advanced Open Water course. The deep dive brought us back to the Liberty, and this time we went all the way to the bottom. We didn’t enter the ship this time because it was meant to be a depth training dive. Instead, I concentrated on breathing at 30 meters, which is more difficult than it appears. At that depth, the water pressure is four times higher than at sea level, and you can feel the extra effort required to inhale each breath.

Things can grow a little more perilous during the deep dive. The lower you go, the more issues can occur, including nitrogen poisoning, running out of air (you use it faster at depth), and, most importantly, decompression sickness.

Ask any experienced diver, and they’ll tell you that you don’t even need to travel deep to observe interesting things. The bright coral and exotic fish that divers normally wish to see adore the sun, therefore they like to be at the surface where it is brighter. Diving shipwrecks, which are often deeper than the 18 meters allowed under PADI’s Open Water certification, is the one exception to this restriction.

Fourth: Night Diving

It was time for another first for me, a night dive, around sunset. As usual, our instructor and us suited up on the beach, this time with two dive lights, which are large, extra-bright flashlights that overheat if not submerged. The sun had begun to sink below the horizon by the time we got into the water. It was far more incredible than I could have imagined. We returned to the Liberty wreck, and without the sunshine flowing through its fissures, it appeared unearthly. Colors seemed more vibrant, and whatever I shone my light on stood out against the darkness in stark contrast. We can’t say enough about how much we enjoy night diving!

Fifth: Underwater Photography

PADI has a variety of specialty courses you can choose for the Advanced Open Water Certification. Those are:

  • Coral Reef Conservation
  • Boat Diver
  • Drift Diver
  • Night Diver
  • Peak Performance Buoyancy
  • Altitude Diver
  • Wreck Diving
  • Cavern Diver
  • Underwater Photography
  • Underwater Videography
  • And many more.

Keep in mind that not all diving centers offer all possibilities, and that availability varies depending on local conditions.

While the dive in USAT Liberty itself can be categorized as wreck diving and it’s quite impossible to have drift diving in Tulamben, we choose Underwater Photography for our last dive! It was wonderful but you can always try fish identification or underwater naturalist that are just equally interesting.

Meanwhile, they have such a superior sweet bread breakfast call Bostock. It is made with brioche bread sweetened with syrup. It also topped with almond-based sweet cream and a layer of sliced almond. This light yet delightful meal for breakfast is nourishing and energizing to start your day.

The difference that Packzi is filled and flattened. However, the texture is similar to doughnut with some fluffiness and softness. The filling of Paczki are varied such as cream, fruit jam, or even seasonal fruits.  And the outer layer of this Poland doughnut is covered with a glaze or sugar.

Cornetto from Italy

This is a common breakfast menu in Kenya that you can find it almost everywhere across the country. It is also pretty similar to doughnut. However, it is less sweet and lack a glaze. Mandazi is made with yeasty dough and formed into triangular or circular shape. It is also kneaded with coconut, cardamom, and sugar.

8 Mistakes People Do When Staying in Bali Villas

8 Mistakes People Do When Staying in Bali Villas

When you are taking a long vacation in Bali especially with family, it’s normal if you prefer to stay at villas than at hotel. Because vacation rentals are meant to feel like a home away from home. However, that doesn’t mean you should treat your villa like your own house. Vacation rental in Bali is essentially a rental property where the owners can bill you some money for any damage you may have done. If you’re not careful, some minor mistakes like forgetting your toiletries is more an annoyance than a damage—but still it would be better if you can avoid such mishaps. So take your notes and avoid these mistakes when you’re staying at a holiday rental in Bali and have a perfect stay!

Assuming All Bali Family Villas are Pet-Friendly

Assuming All Bali Family Villas are Pet-Friendly

Sure, Bali is pet-friendly and you can see dogs and cats strolling around the island. You might also see a lot of foreign travelers (they must be staying at a villa somewhere, right?) taking their dogs for a walk or even for motorcycle ride. However, don’t assume that your villa will be pet-friendly just because others are. Apart from the possibility of causing a mess—especially in an unfamiliar environment—pets can also make individuals with allergies sick, whether the owners or prospective guests, and some villas do not allow dogs. Leave your paw-companion at home unless the rental clearly states that pets are welcome.

Throwing A Party in the Villa without Notifying the Owner

Having more guests on property than are listed in your reservation can result in the loss of your security deposit or a large fine from the vacation rental agency. You might assume there’s no chance you’ll be discovered if the owner lives away, but a noise complaint or report from a neighbor could easily find its way back to your host. Even if you’re staying in a 6 bedroom family villas in Bali that’s meant to accommodate large group, you should always ask permission from the owner first. 

Losing Your Bali Villa Key

Although a lot of real estates in Bali now utilize a lockbox code, if you stay in one that still uses an old-fashioned key, keep it with you at all times. If you’re given more than one key, be sure that each member of your group has one to avoid locking yourself out. Otherwise, if the owner does not reside nearby, you may have to pay for a locksmith to gain access.

Not Washing the Dishes Before Using Them

Not Washing the Dishes Before Using Them

Staying in a vacation rental rather than a hotel provides you with a fully equipped kitchen. Vacation rentals, unlike hotels, do not have a particular cleaning process to follow. In most cases, the preceding guest is asked to hand-wash the dishes (or loaded into the dishwasher if there is one). And what if the holiday rental didn’t include dish soap? That last visitor may have simply given everything a quick clean and left. To ensure cleanliness, bring some dishwashing detergent (or dish soap and a clean sponge) and thoroughly wash a number of dishes that you will use during your stay.

Not Bringing Your Toiletries from Home

While every rule has an exception, don’t forget to bring your own soap and shampoo. You’ll probably need paper towels and toilet paper while you’re at it. Your stay could cost hundreds of dollars, yet it’s rare to find a home rental that includes toiletries and paper products. If there is shampoo or soap in the bathroom, it could be a beginning kit or something left behind by a former renter. And, while there may be laundry detergent and dish soap beneath the sink, you’ll probably need more than that. Always inquire about these necessities with your host, and it never hurts to have them along just in case.

Filling Up the Fridge Full

You have a kitchen in your house rental, so you can — and should — cook at least a few meals to save money (and, especially right now, avoid unnecessary in-person interactions).

However, be honest with yourself. Don’t bring a ton of perishables for a pot roast, casserole, or meatloaf if you know you’ll be eating out most nights. If you’re unsure what to expect, stay with long-lasting items that won’t spoil and can travel with you back home. Nearly any last-minute ingredients can almost always be found at a local grocer.

Forgetting Your Villa Deposit

Some of the best villas and holiday homes in Bali are now requiring large deposits to ensure that you do not damage their property. Because the deposit is usually paid at the time of booking, it’s easy to forget about it—and you might not realize it if you don’t get it back after you check out. Set a reminder in your calendar to check your bank account/credit card to ensure that your monies have been repaid and that the vacation rental company has not incurred any further, unexpected costs.

Lawar

This is authentic Balinese food not everyone brave enough to try. It is made from chopped meats, vegetables, spices, and grated coconut.

The Importance Of Selflessness In Leadership and Business

It is often that many people quit their current position in a company because they don’t like their toxic boss. Toxicity in leadership can be in many forms such as power hungry, self-centered, being unavailable for guidance or help, micromanaging, etc. Toxic supervisors make people under them not only uncomfortable but also unsafe. Therefore, it is important to develop the element of selflessness into leadership especially in business industry where humility is viewed as less important thing. 

The Importance Of Selflessness In Leadership and Business

Develop selflessness in leading a team

Selfish leaders will mostly think about themselves rather than their team they manage. It results in negative outcomes such as decreased engagement, increased absenteeism, reduced productivity, and many more. Meanwhile, selfless leaders are the opposite. However, it is not easy to develop selflessness in leading a team. So here are some practices to help you become a selfless leader:

Guide your employees

It is not enough to just point your teams in the direction you want and neglect them. As a leader, your responsibility is to guide them not only giving them particular tasks. When you guide them through the process, you show them that you care for them to succeed. You will be more appreciated by your team for what you do. Going extra mile to help your team won’t make you a weak leader but the opposite. 

However, keep in mind that it is different from being overbearing or micromanaging. The point of being  a guidance is to make yourself available and accessible for your team. Practice this with clear communication and encouragement. This will be a win-win for both you and your team. 

Practice positive attitude

Attitude is crucial in leadership because it is infectious and contagious. Hence, always set positive tone to make sure your teams follow you as their good example or role model. Make sure that you practice positive attitude far from being fake. Show your authenticity and sincerity by emphasizing your team’s mental and emotional well-being.  Encourage your team to develop healthy habits to find work-life balance. Give them example how you incorporate healthy habits into your daily life.

Give back through selfless acts of service

Many employees think they company only take and take from them without giving back any in return. Remove his misconception by giving back through selfless acts of service. It doesn’t have to be something grand. You can simply surprise them with morning donuts or let your team go home one hour early without cutting their pay. You can set an example of how to practice random acts of kindness to encourage your team to do so to each other. 

Encourage the team’s self-growth

Great leaders will focus both on their well being and that of others. They put their best effort to encourage growth in others. It is because a selfless leaders see investment in someone else’s growth as mutually beneficial. Hence, they won’t hesitate to take time helping others, showing appreciation, and celebrating small or big success. 

Get More Booking for Your Bali Holiday Villas in Shoulder Season

Get More Booking for Your Bali Holiday Villas in Shoulder Season

Summer is the peak season in Bali, and this season happened twice in this island. No, we are not talking about summer as in the weather season, as Bali itself is a tropical island—but more of holiday season. The first summer is as we know it—during June to August where most people around the northern hemispheres have the hottest months and flocks for vacation. This is also the time where local Indonesian students are having school holidays and peak of local family travel. Second is the Australian summer, which happens during December to February. Your holiday villas in Bali may be thriving during these months, but what are you going in between? Shoulder season doesn’t mean that your villa needs to suffer as a result. When you consider the less crowds that shoulder season often provides, it’s easy to persuade visitors that it’s the best time to visit. Read more to see our advice of the most effective ways to make the most of shoulder season.

Off-Season Prices of Your Bali Holiday Villas Should Be Adjusted

Airline tickets and hotel rooms both drop in price during the off-season, so your vacation rental should as well. When guests are seeking for a vacation, your vacation rental will blend in by responding to the present circumstances. Make sure your pricing level for off-peak bookings is correct. If you already have a lot of interest, you don’t want to lower pricing on weekends, but a price that is too high may dissuade guests from even looking.

Have A Minimum Night Stay? Lower the Requirement

Have A Minimum Night Stay

During off-season travel, the minimum night stays should be reduced. If your vacation property has a seven-night minimum stay requirement, reduce it to two or even enable customers to stay for only one night. Making your booking conditions more flexible can also increase the number of queries you receive. Appeal to travelers who only want a short weekend gateway or travelling in last-minute decision.

Special Shoulder-Season Promotions

You might find that by providing your guests added-value discounts like three nights for the price of two, or a whole week for the price of four, you can fill far more of your schedule than you anticipated. In a discounted deal, you can also mention a percentage, such as “30% off.” Travelers will find it more tempting in this manner because they will know they are receiving a better value. It’s also a terrific method to promote your Bali holiday villas rental.

Target Local Travelers for Your Bali Holiday Villas

While you may see a drop in business during the shoulder season, keep in mind that it’s always a good time to attract locals. Even during the off-season, the local community is always buzzing, so you should direct some of your marketing efforts there. Use local media channels and social media to target locals so you may continue to generate money and business even when the tourist season isn’t in full swing. Local retail retailers, for example, can explore collaborating with a nearby restaurant to cross-promote their companies during shoulder season. Even if there are no tourists, there is still a lot of foot traffic, and all you have to do is position yourself in the correct place to take advantage of it.

Use Social Media to Get Your Bali Villas More Exposure

To promote an article and reach more potential visitors, use the boost function. Remember to provide a link to a seasonal special, a specific accommodation, or your reservation page. Do not forget to share genuine images of people experiencing your Bali holiday villas. This help future-visitors imagine life in your villa and spark the desire to book the house.

Discrimination in Workplace

We often feel different. We often feel that we don’t belong in a place. Are we alien who live in planet earth? 

Though, human are unique and very diverse. Each of us has our own personality and we all came from different backgrounds. 

Despite those facts, we live together and should be living in harmony. Thus, nobody should not discriminate others just because they are different and minor. 

In the USA alone, there are more than 1 million cases of discrimination in workplace filed between the fiscal years 2010 and 2017. And these are just cases that has been reported to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or state and local partner agencies. The real number of discrimination that happened must be much higher than that. Some of the victim chose to be silent because reporting the discrimination is considered complicated and it might only get the victim fired from the workplace. Other workers perhaps do not even know that he or she is experiencing discrimation. 

So, how can a treatment in the workplace be regarded as discrimination?

According to Equality and Human Rights Commission, discrimination occurs when you are treated less favourably than another person in a similar situation and this treatment cannot be objectively and reasonably justified. Discrimination can also occur if you are disadvantaged by being treated the same as another person when your circumstances are different (for example if you are disabled or pregnant).

As stated in the Human Rights Act, it is against the law to treat people differently in the basis of sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status which include sexual orientation, illegitimacy, marital status, trade union membership, transsexual status and imprisonment. 

Examples of discrimination in workplace

Discrimination in workplace can be conducted by our boss, supervisors, colleagues and even a nonemployee. This also means that discrimination can happen to all of us, no matter in which position and where we work. 

Somebody in our office, for instance, repeatedly referred to our country or locality of origin. Another person makes inappropriate jokes that lead to sexual conquest. A well-performed employee can’t be promoted for rejecting supervisor’s offer for a drink. An immigrant worker always sits alone during lunch time. Prospective employees are asked about their religion and marital status at the interview. 

Sometimes it is hard to tell if an action is considered as discrimination or not. But, when you feel something is not right and that you are treated unfairly, it is best that you address your complaint to the HR department first.
