22 Sept 2015: Allhamdullilah, five-star dog-walker Ketut is back — after a brief spell with the lurghy (flu) — to inspire us all to lay down in front of the bulldozers now ruining pengembak with red trimmed paver blocking oh mama.

His boss, a SanBram (sanur brahman), has made hime take out his signature earrings which used to send chills down my spine
Meanwhile a circle of devout hari krishna is slowly drowning in the bay. The sun also rises.
Then four Surabayan teenagers arrived 
After a night on the piss. And Ketut Glesir from renon, son of the mangku priest of the pura dalem there. While the drunk teenagers smoked and ripped off their gear, Pak Glesir and I talked about the legendary Baris Cina from his village and their antecedents in Madura. Apparently the 17th century dalem klesir from Klungkung asked raden patah the first sultan of demak to send some madurese soldiers to defeat the raja Mengwi. Madurese moslem soldiers were more sakti/ mystically-empowered he explained. They came and stopped at Kampung Bugis, Pura Belanjong and Pura Mertasari apparently, before fighting the raja mengwi's troop alongside the raja Badung / Pemecutan. Eventually they ended up in renon. To this day they dont eat pork. And still wear Madurese costumes when they do their spooking dance on the tenth full moon at Pura Mertasari. The lontar is at puri pemecutan and in the puri pemecutan. Another reason why puri are important oh republican pinkoes
