BALI 2016 Trip: Day 4 All the way back to Kuta

The 4th day in Bali is the last day before departing back to Malaysia. 
Firstly, let my phone had her breakfast first. haha

My signature western breakfast.

Croissants in basket 

My favourite french toast !

After breakfast, is time to proceed the check out and saying
goodbye to Anulekha Resort and Villa

I had requested my tour guide to take pic on my injured leg picture 
So this is the outcome of that day. hahahaha

Supposingly going back to Kuta
But since the waterfall in Ubud is considered as an attraction to visit 
so he dropped by me and pay for a ticket entrance to enter
It is not worth for me to visit waterfall as I can't even walk down the steps to reach the waterfall.

Sigh, next time must come and swim at here when I am able to walk properly again. 
By the way, the waterfall is quite beautiful. 

Took around 1-2 hours to reach Kuta and here I was at Kuta Beach
Enjoying the sea view and sun bathing with a bottle of Sprite.
Bought a bottle of Sprite and you can get a free chair with an umbrella to sit by facing the sea. 
But of course, if you too sit too long, the seller will come approach you to buy another drinks again.
So, just buy if you wish to sit here,.

It was so fast to reach the time of 1pm and I have to meet my tour guide at 1pm as set.

He brought me to the local indonesia restaurant to have lunch
and it cost around IDR 9,000 for a plate of mixed rice and a free soup.
The food is nice but their local food is too spicy for me,
even their black bean soup is spicy too.
But overall is tasty and delicious.

After lunch, I have told the tour guide to made an appointment for Balinese Spa
In Bali, is a must to try their spa as different country having their own style of spa
I always felt asleep whenever I had spa in Bali
and this time I came back here to have their service again.
IDR450,000 per pax, around RM150 per pax for 2 hours spa
including leg spa, body massage, body scrub, yogurt mask and bath tub for 15 mins

Having the last dinner and dessert in airport before departing back to Malaysia
I have my lunch around RM30 for this.

The greatest memory of this Bali Trip is the SIGNIFICANT Dream Beach
and I swear I will come back to this beach again one day. 

Expenses for 4th day:
Ticket entrance for waterfall: RM10
Kuta Beach drinks : RM20
Lunch: RM3
Bali Spa: RM150
Dinner: RM30

Total Expenses: RM213

BALI 2016 Trip: Day 3 Visiting Ubud, the Paddy Field

The day after Nusa Lembongan, I have been pick up by the driver from the Abian Huts Resort and get back to Sanur Beach jetty after the 20 mins ride, and yes Ubud is the next station to go,
but since the second day I reached Bali was around evening time,
the driver which I hire to pick me up had waited me at Jetty before I reached the jetty.

I requested him to bring me to buy Sim card as it is suffering to disconnect with the world. haha
So, I chose back the same company again which is Simpati Sim card which they considered is the best line in Bali. It costed around RM25 for 3 days Internet.

Then, the driver fetch me to the hotel I have booked in Ubud to carry out check in procedure.
The hotels in Ubud is cheap and affordable,
I never regret to choose Anulekha Resort and Villa as it is a great hotel and the price is consider cheap compared to their facilities given.

I chose to stay 3 days 2 nights in this hotel and it cost around RM340 for 2 nights,
It is considered cheap as their bathtub is super huge and nice,
Normally the hotel which provide bathtub may cost around RM250 and above
but this hotel impressed me and the room I booked was Deluxe room only. 
All the toilet ammenities were provided sufficiently and the only thing was the hot water to fill the bathtub was flowing too slow and it need 2 hours to full the tub. LOL

The driver fees cost RM83 for today by fetching me from Sanur Jetty to Ubud.
Dinner for tonight I took in the resort as the location of this resort is not in the Ubud Central
They did provide free shuttle service to pick up and drop off at Ubud Central

The dinner cost around RM60 for a bowl of tom yam goong and a bowl of curry vegetables served with white rice. Their food is much better compared in Nusa Lembongan one.

My knee swollen and getting serious during night time and thank god I have finish my beach session today and tomorrow will be a leisure day for me to go by tour car. 

The next day morning, I had great breakfast before heading to explore my Ubud world.
Their breakfast menu is sufficient for you to have full breakfast everyday.
Firstly, they served with fruit platter, of course you can choose the other choices in the menu if you don't wish to eat fruits

Then, they served you Croissants and breads with butter and jam along.

The main course will be the eggs with side dish.
I have selected scrambbled eggs with mushroom as my breakfast for the day.
Love their breakfast so much =)

The driver started to pick up me at 930am and the first station to go was Ubud Market Central
I can't walk properly and my knee was so pain whenever I move, so I went to the clinic to get the pain killer to let me feel better. No doubt, the cost of consultation fee was charged extremely high, around RM300 plus, I will not include this fee in my budget anyway. 

Then the next station was to visit the Rice Terrace in Ubud.
There were a lot of coffee shops along the road to let you choose and all the coffee shops having the same scenery view of the rice terrace. Just simply pick one will do as I don't think their price vary much in different as this is a tourist attractions place which allow them to charge higher from us.

But the view is amazing, you might love it.

The weather is not good during that day, is a raining day, so we can't have the chance to see the Kintamani Volcano completely. But still, the weather is super cold and windy which you might like it as Malaysians like windy and cold environment. haha

I had my lunch buffet at one of the restaurant situating opposite to the Volcano view,
The restaurant was full of tourists and everyone enjoying their meal with the mountain view and the cold weather too. haha I would come back to stay here for one day just because of their weather, windy and cold. 

The lunch buffet cost RM30 per pax. 

I was hyperactive when the wind was strong enough to make me laughing non stop. 

The last trip will be the Holy Spring Water Temple - Pura Tirta Empul
It required every tourist to wear Sarong before you enter the temple.
The attraction of this temple is their spring water supply by the underground
and the water is super clean and pure.

Ready to enter the temple.

The locals and foreigners were queuing to wash their face and head along the way one by one,
they believe that the water will brought lucks and fortune to them after they wash with the water inside the temple.

The temple has a pond too with big size of fishes 
They did sell fish food for me to feed on them.

Nice view.

Check this video, the water is come up from the ground !
This is the first time I saw this kind of nature process that supply water from the ground 

I requested the driver to send me to Ubud Central back to have dinner at here
I found a vegetarian restaurant in Ubud Central,
I was so excited when I found vegetarian restaurant in foreign country,
the satisfcation of achieving it was so great especially found it by yourself. 

Karma Vegetarian Restaurant

The food are nice and delicious, nice ambience and the price is affordable too
My dinner had spent around RM50 for that night.
The whole day tour for the driver will be cost aroud RM163

The expenses for 3rd day in Bali:

Sim Card : RM25
Hotel 3d2n : RM340
Dinner : RM60
Driver ; RM83

BALI 2016 Trip: Day 2 Exploring Nusa Lembongan & Nusa Ceningan

Morning to second day in Bali Nusa Lembongan,  the day is completely brighten since 5am 
so I can't even sleep more as the shines of the sun has waken me up.

My resort breakfast is not ready yet since the breakfast session started at 7am
so I decided to take a short walk to the nearby attraction
The Devil's Tear

It is too early and it is not high tide yet so I still can't see the big splash of water on the cliffs. 
Too bad for me to pick the wrong time to visit but I am too free as nothing for me to do before my breakfast. hahaha

Let see the soft type of devil tears which if your eye sharp enough,
you might see the rainbow ! and yes, I saw the rainbow appeared over and over again whenever
the waves beat the cliff and the mist sprayed out moment. 

Abian Huts Resort's breakfast is so so for me, so I don't have any mood to take picture on my breakfast and the lobby has no fan at all, what I want to do on that moment was quickly finish my breakfast and back to my room for air cond rescue. LOL
It is kinda dissapointed when the resort banners mentioning free shuttle service 
but end up in reality they did not provide any free transportation for guests at all.
So, I walked to the road and ask for a fetch so the driver charge me 
IDR 25,000 (RM9) which send me to the Junggut Batu
Junggut Batu is the location where is considered as part of the crowded tourists area
as many tourists drop off from that place.
I hire a driver with RM67 to fetch me to the yellow bridge in Nusa Ceningan for Blue Lagoon
I felt that is not worth at all afterall when he just dropped me here and after 3 hours he picked me up again, WTF, the only choice is LEARN TO RIDE A MOTOR in this island.
It is super far distance to reach Blue lagoon from the yellow bridge,
Try to find the locals to fetch you to here and sent you back to the yellow bridge.
Oh ya, you can see there is a lot of seaweed planted beneath the sea by the locals
I saw she was laying the seaweed to dry in the sun when I walked along the road towards blue lagoon.

I asked for the locals to fetch me to Blue Lagoon and end up they want take picture with me WTF
They charge me RM14 for return ride and he keep want to picture with me =.=
I was so speechless but as long as he didn't harm me, I felt better to let him take picture. LOL

By the way, the view of the Blue Lagoon is awesome. 

Once you saw the great and bluish ocean, the long distance journey to reach here and the toleration with the guy did worth it. No regret to come here and I felt proud to myself that I did do research on this island and even the foreigner also follow my bike behind to reach here, wow, this had motivated me so much to do more research in future for every of my single trip. hehe

After Blue Lagoon, I back to my Abian Huts Resort to carry out check out procedure and keep the luggage in the lobby before I headed to Dream Beach.
The only main reason I come to Nusa Lembongan is because of Dream Beach. The Beach is super blue and nice, I never so in love with a beach like this before. Too beautiful to be describe. 

Unfortunately, the waves of the beach is super big. So, not much swimmers dare to go into the beach for a swim, and I am the one of the swimmers and I sprained my knee when the waves pull back, Oh shit, that's my nightmare started. But still, I enjoyed the beach so much !

I paid a RM17 for entrance fee to swim in the Dream Beach Huts Resort, their swimming pool is facing the beach, and yes, you can enjoy the full view of the sea by swimming in their pool.

The pool depth is super deep, not much Asians willing to swim in the pool as the depth is incrediblely deeeeeeep. But the edge of the pool did provide a steps for us to stand on, thank god. LOL

The only thing is Blue in my eyes. 

I took my lunch at the Dream Beach Huts resort too by having a sea view and yes the restaurants full of tourists having their meal with the blue sea view too just as I did. 

I have ordered this Mozarella Pizza which is suitable for vegetarian one
It cost around RM 25

The Dream Beach View, this is the life that we should try !
Enjoy the beach through this video 
I left this great place at 330pm as the driver pick me up at 330pm to the jetty to get back to the mainland of Bali, definitely will come back again for this beach as long as it still remain the same blue as now.

My nose and face got tanned seriously as I didn't apply any sun block before I exposed under the sun, and yea, I looked like tanned shit face now. T.T
Let me summarized my expenses for the 2nd day in Bali:
Ride to Junggut Batu : RM9
Car to Yellow Bridge: RM67
Ride to Blue Lagoon : RM14
Entrance to swim : RM17
Pizza Lunch : RM25
Total for second day: RM132
Stay tuned for my 3rd day in Bali.
