Bintang Supermarket Rebuild
Why is there a Bintang Supermarket rebuild? Many of you may be aware that one of the biggest icons in Seminyak, Bintang Supermarket, supplying so many of our Seminyak Villas, burnt down a little over a year ago, causing much disruption to local shopping habits! Alternatives were quickly sought, but it’s just not the same as Bintang, right?! Well the good news is, the Phoenix is rising from the ashes, and hopefully we will have a bigger, better Bintang, right in the same place as it was before – we are all keen to see it back – there is a smaller version of Bintang Supermarket next to it that has been operating for the last few months, but it’s probably only running on a few cylinders compared to the real thing… but, better than nothing!
On the Covid front – Indonesian officials have been talking about potential plans to establish COVID-19 “green zones” in Bali soon, signaling the possibility of reopening to mass tourism that would include foreign visitors. Nothing is set in stone just yet, as we’ve seen several times now throughout the pandemic – but we live in hope!
We thought you may be missing the sights and sounds of Bali as well – so here is a pic to jog your memory of poking around on a scooter in Bali!
