Singaporean bloggers claim around SGD1,000 cash missing from villa in Jimbaran, Bali

Some Singaporean bloggers on holiday in Bali claim their vacation went south when about SGD1,000 (Rp 10.2 million) cash in various currencies was missing from the villa where they were staying. 

Doing what they do best, the bloggers took their beef with the villa to Facebook, naming and shaming “Jimbaran Sea View Villa,” and instructing their followers not to stay there. 

The three bloggers, Jayne Tham, Tricia Ong, and Lian Meiting all angrily posted to Facebook about the alleged theft. 

They say the three of them confronted the villa’s manager, who they identified as Ari Wartini, who then was “blindly siding (with) her staffs.”  

They even wrote that Artini threatened them: “She was also very quick to respond by asking us to claim insurance and threatened us that there is no point reporting police because she’s “good friends” with them and if we blow the matter up, we “may not be able to leave this country”.”


The bloggers left the villa to stay in a hotel for their own safety and wrote that they tried three different police station to make a police report but they “kept getting pushed around,” and were ultimately unable to make a report.
