a Sade teenager, the native ethnic of Lombok island.
On the way to Kuta Lombok, we visited Sade, a Sasak (naïve Lombok ethnic) village. It was relatively good destination. Local good guide seem always available on the welcome gate. He told many about the Sasak history, lifestyle, architecture to some common words in Sasak dialect.

Wandering in Kuta Lombok, we found Novotel hotel took on one of best area inside, private beach that was beautiful, clean and empty. Later we took Anda home stay and café with 1/10 much cheaper rate, friendly people and good view! Hahaha.. *We won’t do any effort for Novotel laah!* Anda had delicious local menu such as kangkung plecing ayam taliwang which was very cheap. Only 27,000 IDR for one whole chicken! Nyam!! And luck number 3, we got Tanjung Aan as our private beach *hurray!* that also clean, beautiful and no visitor but us! One unique point was the sand. Tanjung Aan had 2 kind of sands that separated in several steps. The big one was white to light brown - as big as pepper granule; you should try how comfy it is to lay on (actually mommy Sylvi regret not to take some home, but better you keep them remain as it should be ^^). In contrary the other was very tiny and so fine. Like ethereal! I did rub it on my face, but it didn’t hurt me.
