Second time in 2008 - Bali i come again..

Unexpected i went to Bali again twice within one year in 2008. Jan 2008 with family and July 2008 with friends...Of course i found the differences between these 2 visits.I think it was more 'crazy ' , fun and free while with friends compared to with family..Well with family i have to care more cares on the kids.More luggages, more money and also the accommodation must be comfortable for them.
For this visit, there were 5 of us. We went to Wong Solo Restaurant looked for indonesian cuisine. This restaurant is so popular with chicken grilled, and had our dinner here.
The place was so cosy. It was located in Kuta center. Some say that the restaurants is belongs to the man who has 4 wives and he claims that because of all the wives, he becomes very successful...So some of the menu have special name like 'ayam goreng madu', polygamy drink.
We spent one nite in Kuta on the first day of arrival..We stayed in Bakung Sari Hotel. It is a budget hotel which just costs us USD22. The hotel just so, so. Not recommended to friends and suits to back packers. I just booked thru internet without get more information from others. Well value for the money lah..We spent half of the nite exploring Kuta and Legian for shopping.
Tiring after 3 hours flight and many hours shopping, we went back to the hotel and preparing for the tomorrow's itinerary

On the next day, our 'supirs' were ready to do the Bali Tours and waiting for us to check out from the hotel quite early in the morning. We started our tour at 10.30am and heading to Tanah Lot. My friends bought many souvenirs here because it offered with the reasonable price. But still bargaining is the important tips.
After taking pictures and doing some shopping here, we heading to Kintamani for our lunch.The weather was so great.We could see the mountain and the lake.We took our luch at the gazebo and facing to the active volcano. What a view. So cold here..I love the banana with ice cream here.One tip, just be ware of the sellers.
After spending almost two and half hours here, we rushed to the hotel, of course Tegal Sari Accommodation. I missed the welcoming drinks here..Teh es jeruk..walla...But my room was not same as we had before..Due to fully booked, we only had a chance to stay in superior room..
And yet, the room still made me happy..
Before we went back to Kuala Lumpur, we decided to go to Jimbaran to look at the sunset. The view is awesome.We didnt have much time to have our dinner here and hoping to do it during our next visit.INSYALLAH..

Bali, again and again and again....(August 2000, Mei 2006, Jan 2008)

The first time i went to Bali was in 2000 after giving birth for the second son, Muhammad 'Imran. I was staying in Champlung Sari Hotel in Ubud for 2 nites. Then we spent one nite in Kuta ( forgot already the hotel's name ), The best thing while staying in Kuta was the sunset view..Since then i was falling in love with Bali..

After short planning, i went to Bali again in 2007 (also forgot the exact date) with my family, there were 8 of us (hubby, me, 3 boys, and other 2 sisters). This time we were staying at Tegal Sari Accommodation for 2 nites. Since then i just fall in love with this place and recommend to my friends who wants to visit Bali.And she wont regret.
This two storey building was our room.
We also had a chance to visit Bali Bird Park.The entrance's fee was bit expensive but we really enjoyed our time here.If i m not mistaken it cost us almost USD 20/25 per adult. The memories here were so great. I cant load the pictures here because i dont have any scanner now plus no digital camera at that moment.

Then, in 2008 i went there again with my family.Once arrived we straight to Wong Solo Restaurant to have our lunch.The dishes not really spicy compared to Padang Restaurant. We take too little photo here.
At Wong Solo Restaurant
We planned to stay at Tegal Sari Accommodation again, but something just raised up, and we cancelled it.So sad. The hotel just next to our hotel, Padi Prada
The Padi Prada's Cafe.
The veranda where we had our breakfast, So close to the paddy field.

With CiTi, ni waktu dia single lagi
This time we went to Kintamani, Tanah Lot, Semar Kuning, Ubud Market..Very great experience. It was my third times to Kintamani and Tanah Lot because i had been here before. We had our lunch at Kintamani which is situated with panoramic view of mountains, volcanoes, and a beautiful mountain lake. One tip to the new comers, beware of the lady sellers. They will follow you wherever you go and begging for your kindness to buy some.
At Semar Kuning while negotiating the price for painting. Ketut was a great person.
More paintings
Talking about Uluwatu, i just had been there for once with my fourth sister.It is one of Bali's nine key directional temples has very great view especially during sunset..The temple is inhabited by large number of monkeys.So beware of your belongings.There is also a very scenic Uluwatu cave with rock formations leading into a beach close to the temple. This is a popular spot for surfers.

Kintamani - Mount Batur
Another place which is similar to Uluwatu is Tanah Lot..The temple is built on a small promontory which is only accessible at low tide.During high water the rock takes on the appearance of a large boat at sea, such is its shape.Poisonous snakes live in the nearby caves to 'guard' the temple and contribute to the temple's dangerous reputation.

Here also buddy2
Sunset is the best time to visit Tanah lot, when the golden red skies frame the temple and waves crash into the rocks.
