The Bond of Balinese

"The bond" in Balinese family... ...old tradition that is still continue from generation to generation... In Bali, when a baby is born, the Umbilical cord will be cut off carefully and buried in house area...topped up with a stone that's bigger than other as a symbol. Balinese people consider it as our brother who always give us life...without it, the baby can't live. ...feel so warmed and welcomed... :)
