[BALI DAY 1]
Bali is our second honeymoon after Amara Sanctuary Holiday. We have been planing this about 2 months before. Here goes the day 1;
We flew in the morning to Bali. Our flight was delayed due to qantas issue, but we reached Bali still on time. Despite flight delay, we received a surprise from our Hotel; Our room is upgraded, and guess what, upgraded to 3 bedroom suite, that is 3 times larger and 3 times more expensive; yet we paid the same amount. We stay at Novotel Nusa Dua Bali for 3 nights.
Being so happy with our room, we left for Rock-Bar-Bali cafe; is a cafe resorts in a cliff as the picture shown in the first gallery. We took a small carrier / lift to bring us down to the bar. This bar provides liquor, finger foods also and the most important; a very good ambience. But all of that, also cause a lot.
After spending few hours in the bar, we decided to go makan to a well-known seafood restaurant in Jimbaran. We had a FEAST! at Cafe Menega. We had Red Snapper, clamps and Lobster... just for 2 of us.
After filling our stomachache, we went back, but on our way back, we decided to stop by at shopping center nearby our hotel; named Bali Collection. Lots of restaurants, cafes, stores such as Billabong, Quiksilver, local surfing attire, even local attire also can be founded.
[BALI DAY 2]
Day 2 started with breakfast in the hotel, then we continued to play at WaterBom-Bali. It is so fun that tina did play the water-sliding 3 times! HAHAHA...
Then after half-day playing, we decided to go out for lunch. We went to Kuta and eat at Warung Made at Kuta branch. They have another one at Seminyak. We had Special Fried Rice, Gado-Gado and also Chicken Satay.
We also went to Ground Zero where Bali Bomb took place at 2005. Then we drive around the area, the stores are getting crowded nowadays, also cafes are having good business too. Later we went to Krisna for shopping. After went for little bit shopping, we had a short spa + massage in nearby spa house named ZEN'sation.
After a relaxing moment, we decided to Ku_De_Ta to actually look for sunset; but too bad, unlucky for us, the sky was cloudy, so we couldn't see the sunset. Next we went for dinner at Bumbu Bali Restaurant at Tanjung Benoa. After the dinner, we were so full, and made us feel so sleepy, so we decided to end our day 2 holiday.
[BALI DAY 3]
Day 3 started with another hotel breakfast before we went to Uluwatu. At Uluwatu, there are 2 places that we wanted to go. First; Dreamland White Sand Beach and second is Karma Kandara. the first place is just an ordinary white sand beach. Nothing is there except very white sand and blue ocean water. No restaurant yet, no cafe yet, and to go there, it is a bit difficult because no car can stop nearby, have to walk around 200 meter before can step on the white sand. Karma Kandara (KK) is more preferred than this dreamland beach. (KK) also has white sand beach but to go there, you also need to ride the small gondola down the cliff and need to pay 250Thousand Rupiah (SGD36). It includes first drink (vodka with ginger), a beach towel. and 100Thousand worth of voucher.. The drinks are worth than that actually. Anyway, this place provides snorkeling, swimming, sea-side spa and also (expensive) villas.
So After spending few hours there, we continued the holiday to Ubud, searching for local food. We were recommended to one place called Bebek Tepi Sawah. The traveling time taken from Karma Kandara to this place was quite some time. more than 1 hour. but it worth the time. the Duck and the fried chicken are tasty. After our stomach filled with chicken and duck, we went back to Tanah Lot Bali. It was a bit crowdy when the time we came, the tide was still quite high.. so the passage were all wet and a bit water here and there. The wheater also very hot. One more is, the way to reach the temple is full of local stores. So you can buy things like Baju Bali, accessories, temp tatoo, etc.
After Tanah Lot, we went back to Kuta to find a dinner for us before headed back to Hotel. Rumours is chosen to end our day 3. was a bad choice actually, we disappointed with the wagyu. It taste really bad, but the rib-eye taste better. Day 3 ended, and we spent the night at the hotel; enjoying the coziness and comfortably of the hotel room.
Day 4 early morning we flew back to singapore. One day we might return to this paradise island again, and it would not be the same on the next trip.
