“She was apparently drunk when we detained her at our office on Tuesday morning. As she became sober, she admitted that she had just lost her cat that morning and was unable to find it. Which caused her to feel upset, get drunk and mumble up and down public streets searching for her cat, causing many people to get scared.” Subawa said. Apart from this woman, another expat was spotted by an official acting a little strange in front of the Legian Village Office on Monday morning (16/8). The Head of Legian Society Empowerment Institution (LPM), Ketut Sentanu confirmed that an expat man was spotted sitting and hugging a banyan tree in front of the office.

“On Monday morning around 9:00am, an expat man with long hair came and asked for permission to sit and burn some incense under a banyan tree that is located in front of Legian Village Office.” Sentanu said. The man explained to Sentanu that he intentionally came to visit the tree to feel the mystical powers that radiate from the tree. After a few hours of sitting and touching the tree, the man who has been staying on Jalan Padma for over 2 years finally left with his motorbike. “He said that he feels calm when he touches the tree.” Sentanu added.
