Congratulations to the Bali government and Wakil Gubernur Bali Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati as indicated in the article below in Bahasa Indonesia and followed by an English version.

A new law encourages government and private sector to have their employees dress in traditional Balinese costume every Thursday of every week to preserve the Balinese culture and language.

Many will see this as a burden as Honolulu, Hawaii did decades ago for Aloha Fridays.After a short time people realized that this it was a great idea to maintain the Hawaiian culture and language.

I fully approve of this recommendation by the government and will insist that our 135 employees adhere to this new law wearing Balinese Costume, and speaking Balinese as much as possible during Thursday of each week.
Selamat Bali hari Kamis
