Surprise! This post is almost on time!
Bali Trip – 8 March to 10 March.
Stayed in a 4 bedroom villa in Jimbaran. It’s called Pat Mase. See the photos. It is a very nice hotel – on macro level. Aren’t the pictures gorgeous? Given my half-assed photography abilities. I am not going to start grieving on a micro-level. The past shall remain, in the PAST!
What else is there in Jimbaran? Beach side seafood restaurants. So many of them! All along the beach. So, you’re having dinner on the beach, by the sea. Type of food? Seafood of course. But it’s really pricey, for JUST barbecued seafood. Boring! Dinner for 6 – USD401.00! They didn’t even want to give discount on the USD1.00. I fainted, and collapsed on the sandy beach. Ah! That’s why they serve us on the beach. The sand will cushion the fall of every person that faints when they see the bill.
It’s just barbecued seafood – served on plastic plates that were not cleaned properly! The service astrocious, and the food took an hour to be served!
Restaurant I would recommend, Ma Joly in Kuta. Type of food? Very nice food. French. But they have Italian too. And very good service, excellent ambiance. See pictures below.
Another restaurant I would recommend – Lotus Cafe in Ubud. Very good food too. The food is fresh, and healthy. Red rice, not much grease, lots of salads and vegetables. I don’t have any pictures. But we’re sitting around a man-made pond. I think they have a few outlets all over Bali.
Ubud – Definitely a must visit! Monkey forest, lots of nice bistros, many shops selling souvenirs, costume jewellery. I got this for RM25.00
Legian – we just drove past, but they were many nice shops selling home decorative items. They have higher-end shops as compared to Ubud and Kuta.
Nusa Dua – all the high class hotels with sea front. You can have a massage on the beach, with the sound of the waves, facing the ocean – if that’s your kind of thing. The hotels are all really nice. I want to stay there the next time – when I go with my favourite sister. We can be the beach bum sisters of Bali-wonderworld.
I am quite sure I went to Seminyak too – but I cannot remember what happened there.
Like I said, it was a whirl-wind trip. Too fast and too furious! I feel I know what the Tasmanian Devil feels like when he pauses for 2 seconds.
