when we were in bali




i was in bali for 4 days. Definitely not sufficient to get to know the whole bali.
Bali is too awesome not to visit. A friend once said to us, "you will visit bali atleast twice in your lifetime". At that time i thought he was over exagerating it. But being there for less than a week, i already planned for my 2nd visit. Bali is full of heritage, culture, arts and history.

We managed to spend 2 nights in kuta and one night in ubud. One of the must go place that
we missed was Tanah Lot which is remarkable for its beautiful view of sunset. It was quite a big dissapointment for someone who loves the sunset. The weather was not so good to capture the sunset as it was cloudy for few days. So, we had solid reason to proceed with our plan B.

I had so much fun in Ubud with my best friend. We didn't plan/book the hotel ahead. Just redah and we managed to get a nice place to stay nearby Monkey Forest for Rp.50,000 (approx.RM20!!) We saved on the accomodation and decided to rent a sepeda motor (scooter) for Rp60,000/day with full gas. I've never been riding for more than 1km all my life so this is going to be an adventurous joy ride for me! Yeah it was too adventurous to tell.. from riding under heavy rain.. to a minor accident which is too funny to disclose.. i would never trade the experience we had with anything else!

i have more to write but yet so lil time to blog out.. more of bali photos will be uploaded soon! stay tuned!

I love Ubud than other towns in Bali. Been to Ubud for the past 4 years. Somehow the magic of Ubud kinda lost in me during last visit sometime in Sept.'06.
Need to find new 'hang out' place for 2007. U seem well traveled. Any recommendation?

irina, jom! lets make a photographer's trip!!

kijal, "hang out" place.. hmmm if u want somewhere near, a good place for mind relaxation u can try perhetian kecil, but i doubt you haven't been there. have you tried cambodia or vietnam? i heard its a nice photography spot. haven't been there tho..

hi arry, i was already in kl on the 23rd. bummer! ahh... even not celebrating anything would already be a nice remarkable moment there. i can imagine celebrating a birthday there! so, that makes us the aquarian breed!! happy birthday!
