Bali with Family - April 2010 (1)

Day 1, April 1, 2010 (from LCCT to Bali)


Emm lama dah tak update blog since Bali vacation. So, today i wanna share some of my experiences while in Bali.. and this was the seventh times bagi i...Kali ini more ceria and meaningful.. 7 days tu...cuti sakan...yelah sama2 family..cuma kurang gila2..Kalau travel with fren2 kan berbeda donk..

We departed from LCCT at 1550pm (3.50pm) dgn cuaca yg agak menyenangkan..Just imagine that there were 15 of us, my parents, me and the family ( hubby, and 3 kids ), Azmi - my brother with wife and 2 kiddos, my youngest sister and her malu2 husband, last but not least, our beloved chef, Azura and her assistant, heeee...Nadia ( our cousin )...Bayangkan betapa meriahnya ROMBONGAN CIK KIAH..gelaran which is given to me...NO PROBLEM with that..such an honor to me... I felt so happy could bring my parents and the rest of family this time.Yelah, tiap kali balik dr Bali, we were happy talking about how nice Bali was to them..SO now they could feel by themselves...



It was almost dark when we reached Bali. Touched down je dah almost 1650pm(6.50pm).Tp kalau di Bali, it was like at 8.00pm in Malaysia. After gathered all the luggages, we heading to the exit of the bandara Ngurah Rai..Tercarik - cari di mana Iwan and the geng..Iwan promised me to fetch at the airport. We had been contacted almost 2 months before our trip....


Iwan and Yuyun were busy arranging our luggages.

We met Iwan, Yuyun ( my frens ) and they introduced me to Hari, their fren.. After introducing the family members to them, kami jalan 'barang' (sama - sama) to the parking. 2 Toyota Avanza and 1 Honda Jazz were waiting for us. They arranged all the luggages in the cars. The kids, Baini, and Azmi in one Avanza with Hari as a driver, me, hubby, Yati, and Amran with Yuyun in another Avanza. While Abah, Mak , Nadia and Azura with Iwan in Honda Jazz. After having small talk with Iwan, we decided to have our dinner. Dalam kapal tadi makan sikit je..Alas perut..hee...



The first attempt - makan...After gathering some infos dr member2 especially Suhaila, we went to Dapur Alam..Katanya rumah makan ni agak baru lagi..Terletak di Kuta..The most important, this is halalan toyyibban...Tu yg paling penting..Yelah dah lah bawak pak aji and mak aji..So..everything must be watched out..Here, we had our meal by 'lesehan' ( means no chairs just table ) sit on the floor..
Sate lilit and many other tempting menus.

Kat sini kitarang apa lagi.... ngappppp..best2 menu dia...everything kitarang cuba..Many kinda Indonesian Cuisines...Dapur Alam only charged us Rph 660,000 for 15 of us...Kenyang dan menyelerakan..

It will be recommended to my friends and relatives who want to travel to Bali...Dapur Alam - place you could have nice food and ambience



After taking some pictures here, we decided just go straight to the hotel, Prima Cottages. I forgot to jot down the address in my diary, but Iwan helped me. He knew the place, but we gonna find out sama - sama...The hotel was not the popular one..I thought to pick this hostel because it was so cheap..Lagipun we just wanna stay for one night... So kami terus mencari..it took about 15 to 20 minutes to reach Sanur...But, tak sampai berapa minit dalam kereta while heading to Sanur, i just saw Kampung Bali, one stop center for 'Ole - ole Bali'..I asked Iwan samada we could stop here, then he agreed..BISA AJE BUK.....

We didnt go to Kampung Bali, but we did go to Kampung Nusantara... Just next to it..Almost the same concept... One stop center...Emmm tiba di sini, aku macam melepaskan anak2 ayam...Apa lagi lah..kanak2 tu... SO DAMN HAPPY..But i wasnt happy.. my pocket would dry soon...He....Well we didnt take too much time here..Everyone looked so tired dan mula terbayangkan katil..

From Kuta, it took about 20 minutes to reach Sanur. We gonna find where the place was. But Iwan, Yuyun, and Hari had figured out the place while we had our dinner at Dapur Alam. After searching about 15 minutes, we reached at the hotel Prima Cottages....
Pintu masuk ke kawasan bilik

Si kecik kelaparan..Makan waktu almost mid nite.

The pool which made si kecik geram and frust..

The fine carving - beautifulll
Well it was almost 2300pm. The guard opened the gate after Iwan told him to do so..Sekeliling agak sunyi..Kawasan ini agak jauh dari jalan..Why i decided to take this hotel, pasal kami tiba dah malam and then tomorrow morning we had to check out.. So dont waste our money.. The hotel just cost us plus minus RM350 for 4 rooms. 2 got ac and another 2 didnt have the air conditioning. After did some arrangement we went to the rooms, and i with my hubby got little talk with Iwan and the geng..Bincang pasal itinerary and payment..It went smoothly and they would fetch us tomorrow for the second day program...

Day 2, April 2, 2010 (Bali Tour - Kintamani, Gianyar,Ubud)
Pagi2 lagi Iwan dan datang to fetch us..They decided to send us to Tegal Sari Accommodation first before going to Mount Kintamani..Lebih mudah mendaki gunung jika kurang muatan..means that we had to unload our luggages and check in to the hotel..Okay, i agreed.
So we went to the hotel..While registering our names, we were given the welcoming drinks.. Ni yang selalu nya aku missed pasal Tegal Sari Accommodation. Teh es jeruk nya yang memang sedap bangatttt.....

After 30 minutes, lebih kurang 113am and everything's settled, kami menuju ke Kintamani..Malang nya pertengahan jalan, kami terpisah dgn dua kumpulan yang lain...Aku, hubby, Nadia, dan Iwan tiba dahulu after one hour journey dari Ubud.. While waiting,


kami ke pinggir bukit to take some pictures.. Well as usual, persistent sellers were disturbing us.. Kesian pun ada, tapi telah diingatkan, kalau beli dari sorang, then yang lain pasti serbu, just forget it...15 minutes later the rest pun sampai.. Time for us to have our lunch.. Kata Iwan hanya restoren yang mempunyai sijil halal benar - benar menyediakan makanan halal..Yang lainnya sekadar, no pork serve.... GOSH!!! aku pernah makan di Batur Sari... katanya tiada sijil halal...hee.... nak wat cam ne... dah berkurun tu...

Kami dapat ke restoren, iaitu Restoren Puncak Batur.. Their slogan"Kami satu - satunya Muslim Food"..Looked so convincing... INSYALLAH...They had buffet.. We just went for it... Lapaq.. Pagi tadi macam mat salleh..Makan roti and coffee saja...Well the food not so bad.. or kami dah lapar sangat...But the view here was so nice.. We could see the Mount Kintamani from our lunch place... The air was so fresh..Udara segar, perut kenyang, maka mata pun mengantuk..

Kami sambung our journey..Kata Iwan, kalau mata mengantuk, maka harus disegarkan..So we headed to the coffee plantation...Alah nak buat apa lah nak ke tpt macam ni...dalam kepala aku berfikir..Surely we had to buy the coffee..Well i just agreed...When we reached at the compound, i tell u, anda akan terkezut dengan keadaan di situ...Really made me surprised. They had a cafe di tepi - tepi bukit tu.. So amazing...
Traditional way to make coffee...
The gazebos where u could have your coffee...


The view was so great....Even though, when reaching there, it was raining..But kami redahhh jeee!!!!!The place was called BAS AGROTOURISM...Here, we could have free coffee for testing but the best coffee they had you have to pay..Not expensive, just Rph 30,000 per pot..Means that boleh minum dalam 4 cawan per pot..

This coffee is the best coffee they have.. It was called Luwak Coffee... Selected coffee. Menurut ceritanya, coffee ini akan dimakan oleh musang yang memang mereka pelihara. And this musang memang cunning..pilih only the best coffee..then they would eat, dan yang mahalnya, coffee ini akan di digest dan di 'keluar'kan...heee.... najisnya lah... bercampur coffee. Kemudian diprocess. Eemmm patut lah sedap...wangi!!!!...hee...


The panoramic view..So green... and nice smell of brew coffee
This place also had shop. So you can buy coffee or many other things here as your ole - ole...But the price here you could not bargain.. FIX PRICE dan sometimes OVERPRICED....We didnt buy anything here. We spent almost one hour here...In the journey back to Ubud, aku terfikir, kenapalah Malaysia tak buat benda2 macam ni..So how the tourism in Malaysia nak improve...

We continued our journey to Ubud dan pastinya melalui area Tegal Lalang. The view here so spectacular with rice terrace. I used to pass by here every times nak balik ke Ubud. But this time i was lucky when Iwan offered us to stop and had a view here.. Even though it was still raining, but not too heavy, everyone seemed want to have a drink here..Iwan suggested us to go to Alun - alun Cafe..Only hubby and Azmi decided just stayed at the car..
So, most of us went down to the cafe... Wow!! that the only word that i could say...So cantikkkk!!!..The paddy still green. Marvelous view... We just went for drinks here...Great....We just spent about 30 minutes here..We rushed back for solat at the hotel...

But on the way back, hubby and Iwan decided to go to one of the famous painting gallery in Gianyar,
Dewa Putu Toris..Usually we go to Semar Kuning in Ubud..... Now we had choices to look at some of the paintings. Only half an hour we spent here.. I felt so tired... We went straight to Tegal Sari Accommodation.. Nak mandi, rehat kejap then at nite we wanted to have our dinner at Puteri Minang at Jalan Raya Ubud...We have another itinerary tomorrow with Iwan...
