Okay so let’s start the story with what my sister and I wore that day :)
Okay so after dressed, we’re ready to roll! Hehehe
First we hopped into the rented car and by the help of dearest Google Map GPS Navigation system, we were managed to get to Ubud after around one and a half hour driving.
Why Ubud? Well I do think that Ubud has some artsy feeling attached to its narrow roads, the small and unique shops, and the temples that you can suddenly prompt when you’re walking as if they had just popped there somehow.
Ubud is definitely not as crowded as Kuta, plus it has these tiny cafes and restaurants with the shelves of books that made it homy :) AND if you’re willing to look around for a bit, you’d find bigger restaurants located in more remote areas where you can dine near the rice fields with traditional music hums as the backsound. Pretty, isn’t it? :)
This time we were strolling in the streets, and stopped whenever we feel like it. Poor Dhika, though! He had to followed the steps of his mom and sisters with the HUGE urge of shopping boiling inside their heads hahahahaa. Sorry Dhika!
At some stores, he even sat down, pouted, and just played with the tab:”“) We do apologize for the inconvenience, sweetie! Hehehe
After we had some shopping, we had our lunch in a restaurant called NOMAD. The place was kinda cozy, and we tried its Balinese food with small plates of cuisines. 3 plates with rice only 30 thousand!
There were three layers of rice: Nasi Kuning, Nasi Merah and the ordinary nasi putih. Pretty to look at and even prettier to chew!
The drinks were nice too! The herbal drink was absolutely recommended :)
And then, we hop to Sanur Beach. On our way there, we encountered the Balinese that was making their way to a religious ceremony. So we couldn’t go to Sanur through the usual way. Seeing those people, having ceremonies in the middle of holiday where they can actually get lots of money from, it’s quite magical, isn’t it?
They still hang on to what they believe in, no matter how many “strangers” have come to their territory, with taking so many different cultures and backgrounds. But there they were, walking in the streets with offerings for their Gods, shoo-ing those foreigners for a while as if to say: we got more important things to do now, people! Move!
And that’s nice!
And thanks to the GPS once more, we found a way to go to Sanur, although it was…….dissapointing. I didn’t know what happened or whether it was always like what I saw…but the waves were so far away, around 100 metres from the coastline. And we had to walk through the swamps if we wanna get there. We tried and gave up after around 30 metres. Not as easy as it looked, surely.
An interesting thing was, we saw this pretty wedding in the beach! Aw so sweet. Especially when the bride walked down the aisle. She was so pretty with the white dress, A doctor, the master of ceremony said. Good job, doctor :D
Our last stop was Legian, where we ate at Warung Made! Their specialties was Indonesian food. So we ordered fried rice. My sister tried their three-colored-ravioli, and it was heavenly yummy :”)
While eating, we watched the salsa dancers. Wait, what? Yes, so they had this special salsa night. Nice……but Dhika? Close your eyes, please?
