travalogue bali day 4: revolver coffee house, seminyak beach

hi guys, this is the last post of my bali journey ):
but fret not! there will be one more beach getaway post (psssst it’s phuket) coming soon HEHE.
and i’m hoping to find the motivation to do up my bali trip video. can’t find the mood to do it!!! T.T
here’s a swimming pool view of the hotel!

those were actually taken by my dad hehe. so anyways, on the last day, edmund and i asked agus a favour to drive us to this secret gem everyone is raving about – revolver coffee house! we talked to the waitress and actually found out that it’s owned by an australian from sydney. almost like the cafe i’m working at currently, just that it’s more towards the melbourne side since our owner is melbournian. so anyways, the good thing about cafes in bali is that they are FREAKING CHEAP. so much cheaper than sg’s. sg is like an avg of 30sgd/pax? over here is merely 10sgd/pax. which is so affordable for quality cafe food. however the downside is that their portion is pretty small ): so… give and take guys!!!

BEST FRIES MAN! it’s so crispy and salty hahahaha i love it.
they don’t have it in their menu though so just let them know that you want a bowl of fries and they’ll charge accordingly for you ;)

travelogue bali day 3: water sports, kuta beach, dirty duck diner, tanah lot temple

with 3 comments

Read Travelogue Bali: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 4

hi everyone, i’m back with day 3 of bali!
so on the third day, we headed out to one of the beaches (sorry, i forgot which one ):) in bali for water sports where the waves are much calmer than seminyak/kuta.

DSC05343

the four of us – dad, bro, edmund and i decided to play the jet ski ONLY. because the wind that day wasn’t strong enough for parasailing which was smth that i wanted to go for quite some time already. but jet ski is still legit!!! i ain’t complaining ^_^
jet ski is about 35USD for 15mins. (its cheaper in bintan tho!)

basically we only stayed in that beach for less than an hour because we didn’t need to shower (we didn’t get wet from jetsking at all HAHA) and we went straight to kuta beach after that! here is mainly for us to waddle in the sea and go chilling chilling :>

after soaking in the sun and cleaning up, we went to bebek bengil, a.k.a dirty duck for lunch! this was recommended by my mum’s colleague so we got agus to drive us there to eat some fried duck!!!

and little did we know that the restaurant’s backyard has a beautiful rice plantation for us to take PRETTY PHOTOS ^v^
so happy lo all of us were just snapping pictures hehehe. it’s really beautiful i must say!! super lush and green. love it.

nasi campur bebek + ubud street (drink)

after which, we headed over to tanah lot for some sunset viewing again~ i can honestly not get sick of watching the sun set. even though yes, it sets everyday but it’s still such a phenomenon that you can see so many different shades of the clouds and skies which changes every time. especially with the fact that i’m in bali and have a clear view of the sun setting, it was a treat for my eyes (:

look at the number of silhouettes at the backdrop!

this is the famous tanah lot temple which is one of the seven sea temples around bali coast. there were SO MANY people there. we had to squeeze past other tourists like us now and then. wow. but if i’m not wrong, the temple no longer accept tourists into the temple but only locals.

travelogue bali day 1: dreamland beach, uluwatu temple

with 3 comments

hi everyone! this is the part 1 of my whole bali trip. my family and i took so many photos that it was really hard for me to pick especially when all of us shared the same camera hahaha. so immediately when we arrived from the hotel, we got greeted by agus, our really friendly driver, out for lunch and then we headed for dreamland beach to check out the waves~

my grandparents were there too!

this is a really weird couple hanging out at the beach when there was already a red flag put up and those lifeguards were telling them to get out of there but they were still like just trying to commit suicide or smth -_-

a family picture of ussssssssssss and sigh this dress makes me look really fat i should stop wearing it ):

i’m so happy with you by my side :*

after that we had a pretty long drive to uluwatu temple to look at the sunset but we already missed it cos we were too late. sigh!!! anyway they were so many monkeys there that would snatch your things away like specs, slippers, cameras or phones so be careful and aware of your surroundings!! two of my grandma’s specs got stolen but they managed to retrieve one back so really, be wary of them okay!!

so on the first day we didn’t really visit much, just headed out for pork ribs in the day time and then a restaurant opposite my hotel which is nothing much to rave about s here’s two photos of the exterior of my hotel at best western premier kuta! wouldn’t really reccommend it because firstly, the location isn’t good. especially when your main focus of the trip is to visit those scenic areas in the centre of bali (ubud), the drive up there is really long which take about 1.5-2hrs each time so it’s actually time consuming and secondly, there’s nothing much to eat/see/wander around the vacinity of the hotel. but i guess for the price of the room (60+sgd/night), it’s a give and take situation. so ya! just a heads up on the hotel :)
