Bali: Day 5

Hey peeps!

Last full day in Bali! Day 4 was a spectacular beach day that we got so tanned. Though we just visited Bali in a nutshell, we all agree that Bali opened our mind to its people and culture. I really admire how the locals being religious, friendly and not influenced by foreign cultures despite catering tourist demands.

Be extra careful here at the cliffs of Uluwatu. Our thoughtful guide informed that the soil is soggy and unstable on this spot.

Bali: Day 3

Good morning!

It's already 3rd day in beautiful Bali. The previous day was very tiring but filled with adventure; waking up at 2am, nap awhile and having fun from 6am till 7pm. Phew! We had to take things slow today by waking up at 7am, breakfast at 8am then start journey at 10am.

 Holy water??? Let's find out more about this interesting heritage site...

Bali: Day 2

Rise and shine, peeps!

We woke up at 2:30am today. Gosh it's damn early! Even earlier than the 4am wake up call at Alishan for sunrise. Anyway, we slept around 10:30pm yesterday. Hence we spared a 3 hour nap in the car on the way to Lovina.

A must visit icon of Bali.

Bali: Day 1

Hello, everyone!

Finally a long awaited blog post on travel. The last time I went on a vacation was to Macau a few weeks before Chinese New Year last year. For our anniversary trip this year we went to Bali! It's my first time to Indonesia and I am truly amazed with their culture. Before I continue further, a word of advice would be to research about the culture and festivals of your destination. The most exciting time to visit new places is during their festive season but the downside is most attractions and shops will be closed.

As for Bali, they have Nyepi which is a "Day of Silence", a Hindu celebration to commemorate every Isakawarsa (Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar. Nyepi falls on 9th March in 2016. Our actual date for the trip was 6-11 March but we changed to 6-11 April due to clashing with hubby's colleagues' trip. Nyepi is an Earth friendly day but not tourist friendly where everyone is not allowed to be outdoors, no electricity for 24 hours and no flights on that day. Huge thanks to our tour guide for the detailed explanation. 

A compulsory OOTD shot....or shall I say OOTF (outfit of the flight).

Bali: Itinerary and Budget

Hey readers!

Bali has become a very common destination for everyone regardless backpackers, couples or family. So there's no need introduction to this honeymoon island. Though there are endless Bali itinerary online, I still want to share mine just coz I believe it's unique. Last year we went to Macau for wedding anniversary so this year we decided Bali would be romantic to spend our anniversary.

Bear in mind this isn't exactly a backpack trip but if you really want to spend below RM2k it is possible with budget airlines and hostels.

Review: Photobook Malaysia new packaging

Hello my dear readers!

I just received my 2 photobooks from Photobook Malaysia. Gosh, their delivery has become faster and faster. I placed my order at night and the next day already printed and sent for delivery. I only waited like 2.5days for the books to arrive. So efficient!

This time I ordered two 6" x 6" 40 page mini square softcover photobooks worth RM79 each for Bali trip and in memory of my late cat. You can see my previous review for sample prints of other sizes.
