P/s : finally finish editing of the Day 1 photos, phewww~

Finally after waited for almost a year to this day.
It was our 1st trip together to Bali, Indonesia. Woke up super early to catch our flight. I ? flying with air asia. Cheap and good and it makes my traveling dream come true.

It was so damn early.

Here we fly up high to the sky. Have you ever seen the clouds from the top?

and we were so lucky that we get to catch the sunrise from the sky as well wheeee~ ?

Fully rise. My new experience.

The budget airlines Air asia was so high-tech until come out with an self check-in kiosk machine at LCCT airport.

But the machine so damn lousy until we couldn’t checked in by using that so ended up we still need to queue up to checked in *grrrrrrr*

After we got our ticket pass

we headed to LCCT old town to had our brunch. The prices are slightly more expensive than the usual Old town we can get in Penang but still FULL with peoples.

So we wait until it reached our boarding time to go into the boarding gate.

and luckily I brought my laptop with me so get to online at the airport while waiting for the flight.

There, our flight.

here we flew again.

Had to filled in the custom form before we landed.

Was welcome-d by our driver Dean. Everybody say hello to Dean.

Driver with distinction!!!!!!! trust me he’s worth what you pay. I think by far the best in Bali.

Say Hi to the wonders of Bali. Most of the building sculpture are all come with two separated design. According to Dean he said this one was represent the Ying and Yang.

It was lunch time when we reached to Dean recommended us to tried this restaurant for lunch before we headed to our hotel. At 1st me and my boo both was kinda scare the price will costs us alot by looking the outlook and ambiance of this place but it turned out surprisingly cheap and good.

Nice ambiance.

very Bali-nese style. I like.

Had Nasi oncom which cost only Rp 8000  = MYR 2

Yummy Cah Tauge-tauhu-ikan asin which cost Rp. 12 000 = MYR 4

Gepuk Serundeng which is beef with coconut topping Rp. 8500

and Flying Gurame Rp. 39 000 = MYR 13. I feel so kesian see-ing the fish eaten by us 🙁 but I can’t help it, it was so delicious.

We spent our 3 nights in Tune hotel, Kuta which costs only MYR 55 for all three nights which is super damn cheap.

Our room no. 203

The toiletries.

Eventough the room is not huge and big like 4 or 5  stars hotel but is just a place to sleep for the nights only as long as it is clean, comfortable and convenient.

Then we continue our 1st day journey with Dean.

He was the highly recommended driver by trip advisor. Always fully booked by the tourists but of course he costs more than other drivers in Bali but as I said he’s worth what you paying with no bargain. He told us that usually Malaysian are the one who loves to bargain hard, hahahah we was like so malu man eventough we didn’t bargain but it feels so memalukan with our malaysian’s bargain habits.

The road in Bali are surprisingly narrow, there’s just one lane and this they already consider as main road d, my godness so can U imagine how good is the driving are in Bali?

I said : F’king GOOD!!! Penang also cannot compete with them.

1st stop in Bali was the Uluwatu temple.

Temple’s rules.

Those who wear shorts have to tied the cloth.

Say Hi to my Bali-nese boyfriend

Usually I don’t feel anything that can impressed me by looking at other people’s picture of uluwatu until I, myself been there only I felt “WOAhhhhhhhhhhhhh” so impressive man, YOU definitely can’t get that kind of nice view in Penang. Really mind-blasting!

As there got alot alot alot of monkeys so you have to be aware, not to wear sunglasses or any accessories that will easily grab by the monkeys. and if you got food on your hand the monkeys will come to you and beg u for the food.  🙂

Throughout the whole trip there’s only the two of us but Dean drove a Kijang.

On the way down, we stopped by at a place which according to Dean on dry hot season normally here got alot of surfers surfing here, but too bad when we went that time it was a raining season in Bali.

? the glass house and the clear blue sea.

There are also alot of  Garuda statue in Bali which all done by hand craving. REALLY very details.

As when we reached Bali that time it was already Noon time so we don’t have much time to travel every single place in Bali.

As for the night, we went to Made’s warong at Kuta for dinner.

Pork ribs in young papaya Rp. 45 000 = MYR 15

Fried noodles special Rp. 35 000 = MYR 12

Fruit salad Rp. 20 000 = MYR 7 which is goes very well with the lime as topping.

Ohhhh my favourite beer in Bali. You can’t get bintang beer at anywhere else but Indonesia. Awesome beer. It is as smooth as Heineken not like cheapskate carlsberg or tiger beer that u feel very gassy when u drink.

all this patung was actually looking at me when I had my dinner >.<!!!

After dinner headed back to hotel and recharge the energy for the day 2 trip.
