Heaven is just a continuation of Bali ;P, this would gladly claim by some of the Balinese. Being a home to the vast majority of Indonesia's small Hindu minority, perhaps this is the reason why some 10,000 temples and shrines are tucked amid the island's serene landscape.
A holiday on this island wouldn't be complete without a visit to the temple. From there one can take a peek on the flow of religion diffusing soflt on the daily island life
Just for a quick escape from work, i took a 3 day holiday in Bali. Stayed in Bali Dynasty Hotel in Kuta, the interiors are nice and the staff are so friendly. From the hotel, it's only a 10 minutes walk to the Kuta Beach, and there i feasted my
eyes on the surfers i mean on the scenic view.
Since it was only a short trip, my itinerary is also quite short, i managed to go to ride the glass bottom boat, go to the turtle island (again a real lesson not to forget thy slippers) to pose with the turtles,bat and a snake. And of course, a
visit to the island crafts village, the most famous one is Ubud. I went to the Batik workshop, woodcraft workshop and painting workshop. Geez, am such a sucker for this kind of this, i didn't went off the workshop without my wallet being unscathed *blush* I bought a painting in rice paper (>.<)
Oh yeah, i also made sure i stuffed myself with their native cuisines :)
Having a heavy heart.i lug my bags to the airport counter, i have yet to go to tanah lot and view the flourished beauty of the rice terrace. But hopefully, rather i will definitely go back to Bali again (paging: chili amigos muy amigas)
