Bali Curse – just a myth?

 My itchy backside hands, was idle while waiting for Guinea Pig to feed me dinner. So I went randomly Goggling about stuff (no, nothing too adult, I’m just a kid!), and I somehow Goggled about the ever famous Bali Curse. (LuLu just got back from Bali – and we’re praying hard the curse is just a myth).

But what shocked me was the amount of write up on this. Easily read about 20 blogs specifically on this topic alone (yes, I’m contributing to the pile). There are stories of how ppl dated for 10 years, some survived years of long distance relationship, some were engaged, but all broke up eventually after their last holiday together to Bali, mostly within half a year.

Apparently there’s an old folks tale about a princess who was abandoned by her prince on the island, and she was so distraught she put a curse on unwedded couples who visits the island. (Probably the jerk took off after ‘doing’ her, and she’s cursing all couples who have pre-marital sex on the island!!!) That make sense right? Cos what do we all plan to do at night on a romantic island, far away from work, city and with probably some booze? So, if anyone knows anyone out there who went to Bali with their partners, behaved like 12 year olds, yet broke up anyways after the trip, pls  let me know. Cos Guinea Pigs not gonna be too happy with the idea of going there with our chastity belts on. 😛

I did discuss the curse with him, but as expected, he brushed it off, saying we, humans, only see what we want to see. If we were to hunt for couples who got married and is still together, happily married with kids now, we’ll find aplenty too. He has a point eh.. he always does. Sigh

So anyways… Most sites about this curse eventually had their writers mentioning their fears  as they are going to Bali with their current bfs, and that sparked the reason for blogging about it. I’m pretty typical in this sense. Guinea Pig and I are scheduled to visit Bali coming Jan, and I’m starting to worry about it. Which I shouldn’t. I know, we all should have more faith in our relationships than succumbing to some gossips of a curse. Right? Easier said than done!

Am not hoping to add another Bali Curse story to the blogosphere, so here’s to hoping LuLu’s relationship stays intact, and they’ll have their happy ending (in more than one aspect  :P) <- NO pressure Lu.

Ok.. Got to go now.. time to mum mum… our food genre tonight, Korean!

    Hi May,

    Can I know if your Bali trip was the first holiday trip together with bf? Apparently that probably applies to first holiday trips as couples only. But most importantly, how are things so far?

    I will be going there with my bf next week. Wish me luck!

    Amanda 🙂

    Haiz.. I was so excited to go to Bali this coming Feb. Then I received a text from my friend said that Bali is a cursed for couples whoever went they break off also she said all her friends eventually broke off.
    I also recalled recently one of my friend went to Bali and during Christmas eve they broke off.
    I think if we keep worried about it then it will happened yah…

  8. wendy says:

    Btw I just contact one of my friend in Bali. She said Bali is not cursed only this place name “Tanah Lot temple” is cursed so well try to avoid there.

    Hi to everyone, this is a tragic case between ex-fiancee and i. Feb 2011, he has thrown a lavish proposal at Bali. We were in Long-Distance relationship for MANY YEARS (5 and half years) and we survived many obstacles like he fell out of love and fallen for someone and myself, is not spared from these. However, BEFORE the Bali trip, we manage to patch things up. 9 months after the proposal at Bali, he called it off and decided to break up with me over minor/petty situations. Technically, this is our first vacation together as a couple as his family members normally are with us in every other trip.
    I am extremely bitter as we could not save the relationship. To the rest of you, please don’t risk it.

    Hey! Chance upon your site while looking for more info abt the ‘Bali-curse’. Come to think of it, my ex n I broke off 2 months after our trip there back in 2012 (way before I knew abt e existence of e curse) and my fren broke off with his then-gf shortly after the trip too.

    Coming June, I’ll be travelling to the beautiful island again with my bf. Hope it’s just another “interesting story” because I truly don’t wish to lose this one! Wish me luck! 🙂

  18. Lim Wei Ling says:

    Hi I’m Wei Ling, I know it may be rude to ask but after your trip to Bali with your boyfriend, are you guys still together until this day?

  19. Darknight says:

    Bali breaks up a relationship if you go there before marriage. I thought it was just a story but it’s true I had a wonderful trip with my ex and well now she is an ex . So guys go to Bali if you need to break up and if you are married then it’s ok .
