Liaised with him via FB to bring us around Bali.


He brought us to Tip Top for lunch!

Then he brought us to our Villa!
As usual, Dongs the accommodation manager helped source & book a Villa for our 4D3N stay!

Walked & shopped around the area of Seminyak
IMG-20140314-WA0021
Ended our night with Supper & live band
Blue bird taxis seem like the only reliable cabs
to flag & be able to trust that they’d charge  you according to their meter



Day 2!
Breakfast was sent to our Villa!

IMG_20140315_081838

20140315_092914
It was quite a drive up to Ubud for Water Rafting!

Be prepared to go down a neverending fleet of steep stairs with your gear

This sampat Dongmin refused to get tanned and had her long sleeves on



20140315_113551
Water Rafting was really fun!
We happened to meet 3 other fellow Singaporeans
& were on the same raft

Thou I was really anticipating a steep drop but the currents still made it an exhilarating ride


20140315_113646



20140315_114013

Water Rafting wasn’t really physically challenging
But what really killed me was the fleet of stairs
that we had to CLIMB BACK UP after the rafting ends

Almost died

Lunch was very meh but included in the Water Rafting package


With aching arms and legs,
We needed what we needed

A MASSAGE!


Ketut drove us to Umanimala Spa.
We took a HONEYMOON package at like 20ish sgd per pax? (can’t remember omg)
20140315_135950



20140315_140000
Dongs went to a single room while Shiying & I went to the couple room

It was a full body massage followed by full body scrub and to soak in the flower bath
took like 2 hours?



20140315_140104
Flowerbath
Will be much more romantic if its for couples

& BECAUSE its a HONEYMOON package,
SY & I had to soak in here naked


20140315_155943
No biggie, just that I’m not one who’s used to flashing titties around females
hahahahahaha

Saw lots of reviews raving about Ubud’s must-eat Babi Guling
So we got Ketut to drive us there



20140315_165328
Had a quick meal & it was meh

Got up bright and early for sea sports activities!


C360_2014-03-16-09-03-48-043
But first, let us take a selfie with flowers in our hair



C360_2014-03-16-09-11-54-312

A drive to Nusa Dua Beach!
The sun, the beach, the tan I’d be getting gets me exciteddddd



C360_2014-03-16-09-12-12-960



Nusa Dua beach was zzz
Apparently its a beach entirely dedicated for seasports
Sea was murky with lots of weeds

After Boracay, I’ve developed a high expectation of beaches

SO, our package includes

Jetski, Banana Boat & Parasailing
But we didn’t want Jetski & we were told we could change it to something else
Looking at the catalogue, we saw this (pic below)
20140316_100137
This little fucker a.k.a Big Mabel looks harmless
Or so we thought.
How bad can it get right?

I’m telling you its bad. ITS BIG BAD. Its all the bad you can ever get in the entire world.
I’ve done flying fish I’ve done Banana boat I’ve done cliff jumping
None can compare to the BAD in this Big Mabel

I stupidly brought my phone with me in a waterproof case with a lanyard over my neck
My specs were supposed to be rubberband-ed to my head but the guy didn’t come back to me to get it done
Dongs & Shiying sat infront and I was the only person behind
WE ALL KNOW THE BACK IS ALWAYS BUMPY
with 1 person’s weight how to sustain the impact?!?!
I was pleading and screaming and begging for the guy to stop
He did not.

I’m telling you my ass was in the air the whole time
If I had not held on with my dear life, I’d have flung out to nowhere
I even thought my specs and phone had already been flung out
Its the craziest thing and should not even exist.


Left the scary place and went to Pandawa Beach


20140316_113154



20140316_113243

It’s so pretty!!!
The waves in Bali are crazy strong



20140316_113254

Our guide is the CUTEST!


Checked out of our Villa & Ketut brought us out for lunch
@ Malioboro

What’s so fascinating about this place is that
The chicken is cooked until the bones are so soft you can chew and eat it

I love girls trip!
All that gossiping and shopping is triple the fun with the company.
Its a really brief travel post cos I didn’t pay attention to all the location, prices & names


Did a noobish vid to put snippets of our trip together
