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.

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.

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.

Buddy 2 youu

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