Monkey Ripped Off Tourist's Dress - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Ripped

The Padangtegal Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali, is a major tourist attraction due to the presence of the Balinese long-tailed macaques. The monkeys are notorious for boldly snatching fruit and shiny items like spectacles and hair clips off visitors. 

My godson's branded spectacles was snatched and we had to pay 10,000RP to hire a local to get it back from the monkey.  

Recently the monkeys became more famous. I heard that one of the monkeys ripped off the dress of a beautiful Taiwanese girl. arghhhhhhhh! Dirty monkey.


  1. :-) lol, I didn't know people walked amongst them like that...they're obviously 'cheeky monkies'!! :-)

  2. Bad monkey! I sure hope some one will keep photo hunt going. I actual look forward to it and it's been fun also.
    Your godson paid $1,000 RP to hire a local to get his spectacles back. Question...what is RP?
    Coffee is on.

  3. monkey business!

  4. That looks really ripped, I mean the first picture.
    BTW I have already created a new "Photo Hunter" under the name "Saturday's Photo Hunting" with a new logo and Mr. Linky as in the past. So if you want to join in you are very welcome !

  5. Oh hamsap monkey!!!Thought they are supposedly to be great & 3 wise monkeys with see no evil, hear no evil, talk no evil but DO evil? haha. Maybe the trainer is the culprit so that you have to pay 10,000RP to get back your godson's specs. haha.

  6. I think I would avoid visiting just in case...

  7. I heard of the mischevious monkeys, that's why I specifically told our personal driver to skip this place.Both my husband and I wear spectacles , don't want to be robbed them off.

  8. I just saw your thanks on TNChick's site. You're welcome. I don't like cheating and that wasn't fair; I think that PhotoHunters should have been the ones to decide, not their non-participating friends.

    How funny that the last theme was "ripped" since you guys got ripped off by Whistlestop!

    Gattina has a PhotoHunt going too and some of us are going to participate in that one instead; I hope you'll join us because I always enjoyed your Photohunt choices!

    Happy Holidays!

  9. Poll Police,
    So sweet of you!

    I have more than 450 subscribers. Had I known we could ask non-participating PH bloggers to vote for us, I would have ask for help. :D
