Hello Bali (4D3N) !

Day Two

Woke up early in the morning, like around 630am... Long trip ahead, like really long trip.
My favourite location at Bali - Kintamani. A very beautiful place with volcano, mountain, lake, cooling air... everything just perfect for this getaway.

After a long hours car ride, ass pain but totally worth it!
Volacano and a lake. 

Myra & me. Tired but happy face.

A boat man approached us, and asked us if we want to ride 'sampan' (boat) to see a tomb. He asked for a high price, after haggling for 10mins finally we settled at around 200,000 rupiah each. Took a another 20mins ride to the nearby village to dock the boat.

A very chill-relax village:

Kids there love KPOP. I heard some girls singing "Nobody nobody but you" and the signature dance.

My servants..muahaha.


A tiny place by the lake, after around 40mins of roll roll roll your boat, finally reach the place. Theres a tribe of villagers that "bury" their deceased member at the site, letting the body to decompose without really bury the body underground. Once the body is fully decompose, the bone and skull are collected and display by the site on a stone. When we reached there we can't smell any foul aroma as most of the decompose thing give out a strong smell. The tour guide said because of the big tree, it gives out a very aromatic scent and absorb the bad odour. Amazing! 

Welcome to . . .

Dragon tail with offering.

The tree behind is the legendary tree!

Beside us is the guardian that guard the place.

I got a chance to play the traditional instrument of Bali! Love the tone of the sound that came out from the instrument. Rain started to fall after that, so we quickly sail back to the dock and had a very delicious lunch cooked by the local aunty.

The served a very delicious fish, the local call it "Ikan Mujairab"
The fish freshly steamed and covered with sambal! spicy but tasty!

Till next time! Monkey yo!

Hello Bali (4D3N) !

Early November i went to Bali with just two friends. Both i knew them since uni time and my ex-housemates, one girl & one boy. This was kind of like "okay-just-lets-go-and-have-fun" trip, we booked the flight ticket at very last minute and cost us around RM500+ each, which was pretty expensive in my opinion. (hey you can get like RM600(flight ticket) for Korea) Anyway we just went with the flow and yeap, BALI here we go.


My friend, Keat went there earlier (3 days earlier) than me and Myra as our flight were different. For the first two days, we din't got to book any of the accommodation so what the heck right, none of us were worried because Bali have ample of places to stay, just walk-in is fine. Keat managed to find a homestay at Ubut area and it was pretty comfortable and homely. Haha.

First day, we explored around Ubut with our tour guide, which Keat hired. Oh man, i forgot his name but he is a very cool guy. Let's call him cool guy for now. Cool guy brought us to have a balinese style meal cause i am eager to taste the local food!

Balinese style lunch set, pork sate with some pork intestines and fried pork fat and veggie at the side.

Love love love the soup which made of banana stem? Tasteful and authentic.
I miss this soup.

After local delicacies, went to Monkey Forest. Yes is full of monkey, bananas and tourists from all over the world. It was drizzle for the whole afternoon but it was fun. When was the last time i walked under the rain like a boss? haha definitely not in KL.

Hey look is the sun!

And when walking back out, a tiny golden creature flew by in front of me. Curious as a cat, i jumped and follow the golden hue trail. Oh my, it was a ladybug-like bug with transparent body with gold and bronze pattern. Amazing!

Can you spot the bug? Anybody know what species is this?
Sry i don't have state-of-art camera.

x-large photo are from my friend, Keat's camera.
Now you can see the bug clearly :)

After Monkey Forest, we went to visit few temples and places. Went in one of the temple to visit and bumped into some ceremony, a kind uncle explained to us the meaning and story of each pagoda but with some incentive of course.

Most of their offerings are made of rice or decompose things, which is good for the environment.

 Got back to our homestay around evening. Walk in a tiny street with lovely words and painting written on the road. A small Bali inspired front door greeted us, our homestay place:

Rested and night went out to hunt for the famous 'babi-guling' and the shop was closed, ate at 'warong' instead. After that walked around Ubut area and yeap drizzled night. I am fairly impressed with the design of most of the cafes in Bali, all very unique and fun to look at.

Drank fruit juice at a juice bar, oh and we had beer earlier, beer was cheap:

Myra with monkey king.

First day in Bali : mixed feeling, surreal (getting use to holiday mood) + excitement.

Tik Tok.

How can i describe this pain i felt, once every few months for the past few years.
Agonizing, excruciating pain at my left abdomen. Waves by waves.

Maybe i really should consider to get treatment as is reoccurring.
(Looking for symptoms at google is not reassuring at all.)
My mom said i should go for a scan but need to settle the insurance first.

My aunt just got back from chemotherapy today, she don't look so good.

"The doctor inject poison to our body... Imagine this, injecting poison to kill our perfectly healthy cells and we need to pay for it."

Funny. Money is greater than health.

I am afraid.
