There were a big number of member in this trip.The first group was my cousin and family who arrived in Bali one day earlier than my group.Me, my sister, little one, my friend and her son departed from LCCT at 1425pm.But the flight was delayed for almost half an hour due to the irresponsible people who were very, very late to board in the craft.The third group were my staff and her family which the flight was on 1555pm. So all of us were 13 persons.The more the merrier.. He..he...
We safely arrived at Ngurah Rai International Airport at almost 1325pm and being welcomed by my "Balinese" cousin and her family.
We arrived at the beach at 6.15pm and wanted to see the sunset.Unfortunately the sky was bit cloudy and the view was just okay.We had our seafood dinner at Blue Ocean Restaurant.
After dinner we rushed to the hotel.My eyes and body say 'tired' so i decided to sleep early while the others went for foot massages, pedicure, manicure, and also window shopping along Jalan Legian.
We started our day by light breakfast (the breakfast was served in box) because the hotel's restaurant was under renovation.There was not hot water available at the hotel.I just jumped to the nearest Circle K (like 7 E) which was just in front of the hotel.
The best dish, of course the roasted chicken.( ayam bakar taliwang) I was not sure what 'Taliwang' means.The rain outside was so heavy and we enjoyed the meal very, very much.All the diet, gone.
The mosque was on the top of a small hill so that we had to climb up to reach there.Once i stepped on the floor, the 'adzan' was recited.I felt so touch by the 'adzan'.We did our prayer here.We could have the view of the Pura Ulun from the mosque.Thanks God.I was here, in a mosque which located in the Hindu's community.Something just happened.My cousin's car ran out of fuel...She decided to leave the car at pura and followed us to Ubud.
We reached Tegal Sari Accomodation at 6.30pm and were welcomed by fresh Ice Lemon Tea...Immediately we went to the room at 23, Super Deluxe and the room was facing rice field..... Walla.....The room was beautiful, clean and that is why i like Tegal Sari Accomodation.Friendly and helpful staffs....We had our dinner in Puteri Minang at Jalan Raya Ubud.We were sent and picked up by hotel shuttle.
Due to the tight schedule of my cousin, (she had to go back tonite - Sunday), we decided to go to Denpasar.We went to Jalan Sulawesi where we could get fabric for baju kurung.Everybody was like crazy choosing various color and design of cotton - more to batik design.We spent 3 hours here.Women!!!!!!Just because of our stomachs were singing, we decided to stop and had our lunch.
After lunch we decided just go back to the hotel because some of us had made reservation for spa in Venezia - being recommended by Tegal Sari.I took a chance to take shower and took a nap, because we had to get ready to go to Bebek Bengil Tepi Sawah.We had great time here with the scenery of rice field and the crispy fried duck.They have western and traditional cuisine here.Then, went back to the hotel.While in Ubud, i liked to go to bed early.
It was a new place to go today.We went to Mount Kawi, one of Bali's oldest monuments, means "carving in the mount". A steep stone stairway leads down into a beautiful valley where you find 10, seven-meter-high candies carved into the rock face. Four can be found on the west side and five on the eastside of the river. To the south across the valley lies another. The hardest for me was to climb back to the starting point because of the back bone and knee problem.Seem that i have to take an ages toward it.But the view was so great.Because of everybody seem no more enargy, we just decided go back to Ubud and have lunch before heading to Ubud Market.Also the must place to go.We had our lunch Sumber Hidup Kedai Makan - Nasi Padang also.
Gosh... we had to say good bye to Ubud.Before checked in to Bamboo bed & breakfast, ( we decided to use this hotel and took the late check out because we want to feel fresh before boarding) some of us wanted to do last minute shopping at Kumbahsari Market and Jalan Sulawesi, Denpasar.They also took a chance to do some shopping at Matahari Mall and along Jalan Legian while i just stayed in the hotel with my little one because it was raining.So sad to say good bye..We went to the airport at 5.45pm and checked in at 6.30pm.Our flight sharply on time and we reached at LCCT Kuala Lumpur at 1115pm..Everyone was so happy... and promised to come again...
