Bali with Dear day-3

11 November 2007…..

Today will be the free and easy day for Luna and her dear CH. They naturally woke up at 10.00am and then went to have their cozy breakfast again.

Everybody already watch the Hotel at night, now CH took some pic for you all to see the Hotel at day.

From CH and Luna’s room. Wasn’t that Frangipani-full hotel?

After breakfast, Luna and CH went to walk around the Kuta Town and did some shopping. There’re plenty of stalls around the Kuta area. As a kind advise for everybody, please try to bargain for at least 30% discount before you buy a goods. There’s one alley opposite of hard rock hotel with tremendous amount of stalls selling various kind of souvenir, handicraft and clothes.

The picture took in front of one of the high-end hotel which has dictated sculpture on the wall.

After the shopping, CH and Luna went to have their lunch at Dulang, which is same row with Matahari complex. The Dulang restaurant served good nasi campur. CH recommends it. After lunch, CH and Luna went to Matahari complex to do their shopping again. There’s lot more souvenir and localities in the complex. CH and Luna bought a lot of peanuts in Matahari complex, since the peanuts in Bali is unique and fragrant.

It is already around 3.00pm, and Luna and CH already tired. It is a good time for them to go for a massage. CH & Luna went to the massage shop in the Discovery Mall. Though, they found that it wasn’t as good as the one they had opposite of their hotel.

They took a early dinner before they departing to Ngurah Rai Airport back to Malaysia.

Important: Remember to spare out extra 75,000 RP per person to be paid when you departing from Bali. CH and Luna tricked by this since they dun have anymore Rupiah. They paid with RM as much as RM50 per person at last.

The plane flew at 8.10PM…..

CH reach his KL, PJ’s home on 12.00am mid night. CH managed to take the photo of the goods they bought during the Bali trip. Wasn’t that a lot?

Bali with Dear day-2

10 November 2007…

The second day of anniversary they woke up at 7.30am to have their breakfast. One of CH’s hobby is to have a cozy breakfast when he is traveling(except the breakfasts he had during the Europe trip, all very cold and very few choice only). Today they booked the trip to Bedugul and Tanah Lot.

When they’re on the way to Bedugul, the driver stopped them by a Barung Dance show. The entrance fee is RM17 per head. Is another must watch show of Bali Trip.

CH will recommend you to stop by some souvenir and silver shop on the way to Bedugul. Usually the driver will be very familiar with these shops. You will find that there’s big price different for similar souvenir. But CH found that the more pricy one usually worth for money since they will be more delicate if compare to the cheaper one.

After another 1 hour drive, the driver stopped CH and Luna at the famous buffet restaurant which cost around RM40 per head. The restaurant is located on the hill side which has the scenery of the the Ladder Paddy field. A lot of celebrity from Hollywood been to there, anyway, CH still think the food so so only.

Having tea at wind breezing hill side, what a enjoyment.

After lunch and another 10 minutes drive, they reached the Lake Beratan with the Temple on the Lake. Lake Beratan is located at north east of Bali. The surrounding of this place is very well decorated, The big lake on the highland surround by hill and in front of the lake is the botanical garden, a few minutes walk into the Botanical Garden is the Temple on the Lake. There’s some fruit stall infront of the entrance of the Garden selling varieties of local fruit, you can try it out!

Luna took pic in front of the entrance of Botanical Garden with her cutie attire.

After leaving the Lake Beratan, CH and Luna heading to the Signature tourist spot of Bali, Tanah Lot. Tanah Lot is located at the south west of upper Bali. It is around 2 hour from Lake Beratan to Tanah Lot. Another lengthy journey, though.

The temple will look like floating on the sea when the tide rose. That’s why it was called Temple on the sea.

Sunset at Tanah Lot

After Tanah Lot, CH and Luna went back to their hotel. Today’s trip cost them RM160.

The Hotel CH and Luna staying is the Green Garden Hotel. CH strongly recommends this hotel. The rate is cheap and simple, but yet the decoration for the Hotel makes the guest feels like home there. The Hotel is “plantful” especially the Frangipani. CH and Luna like it very much. Their services were excellent also.

After a good bath, CH and Luna went hunting for food again. The decided to have their dnner at a Warong at Legian Street which were still crowded although it’s already late. CH and Luna ordered Curry Chicken, Stir fried Vege, and Roast Pork with two Cocktail. Oh ya, Bali is a good place to try out varieties of cocktails. Their cocktails were cheap and there’re lot of choice. CH and Luna ordered Long island Iced Tea and Singapore Sling.

After dinner, they went to the Hard Rock Bali. CH and Luna impressed by their Margarita(although it wasn’t cheap). And CH ordered Mai Tai, which is quite good also.

The band performing that night. The female singer was a good singer and sexy with her long leg and short hair.

After 12 mid night Luna and CH already very tired, and went home to be a sleepy pig again!! zzZzzz...

Bali with Dear day-1

9 November 2008…

CH and Luna have been falling in love for one year. For this special one year anniversary, CH wanted to share his passion of travel with his dear Luna at Bali. Due to some reason, Luna and CH been driving all night long before the departure and only had two hours sleep at Air Keroh (The reason can’t be told, or else, someone will twist CH’s ear : P). May this “incident” can be their sweetest memory for anniversary.

The airplane departed at 10.00am, anyway, CH can’t really had a good sleep on the plane. The airplane reached the Ngurah Rai International Airport @ Denpasar around 1.30pm. CH and Luna reached the Hotel in Kuta Town which is 5 minutes away from airport after cheated by the 100,000rp(RM40) Taxi.

After having their lunch at the nicely decorated warong next to their hotel, CH and Luna start their Half day Uluwatu and Garuda Wisnu Cultural Park trip. The rental of the driver and cab cost them 200,000rp(RM80). The journey from Kuta to Uluwatu takes around 1 and half hour. The journey was lengthy but it worth after CH and Luna reached Uluwatu. Uluwatu is a cliff at south-west of Bali. The scenery is picturesque with the high-rise cliff at seaside and the temple on the top of the cliff.

Dear Luna with the Temple on the cliff. Everyone must wear the golden belt to enter the holy temple. Short pant/skirt wasn’t allowed unless they wear the purple-colored sarong.

After the show the driver trying to brought CH and Luna to the famous seafood spot at Jimbaran. CH rejected it, the place is totally would not recommend by CH because CH already tried to dine at Jimbaran once. The food wasn’t good and very expensive! RM400 for four normal friend rice, one fried sotong and one fried fish. CH advise everybody to ask the driver send you back to Kuta(if you’re staying there) and try to look for restaurant around Kuta Town, there’re variety of good restaurant around there. CH choosen the restaurant called Pandan which is opposite to Discovery Mall.

The mocktail, forget the name already but it taste damn good!

The set dinner: Balinese Satay, Curry Chicken, dry fried mix vege, fried spring roll and BBQ prawn. CH and Luna loves the BBQ Prawn, especially the spicy sauce!

After dinner is around 10pm, ok, CH and Luna almost dropped because of tiredness. Went back to Hotel and slept like pig!!
