Our little getaway..
Monday, September 8, 2014 / 10:00 PM
2 hours away from Singapore via Garuda Airlines we landed in Denpasar Bali on Friday, 5 September 2014.
It was Baby's and my first time in Bali, but for our couple friends this would be their second visit. We had someone pick us up from the airport. Their airport is weird because they make you walk through their duty-free shop before you get to get out. What's worst their alcohol were like overpriced.
We stayed at Destiny Villa a 4 BR as we were exploring the house, but 2 BR's seemed locked. So can I say it's a 2 BR villa? I really love our private pool, but I'm sad as I can't swim and can't really enjoy the depth of 1.8m. We have a huge kitchenette were we made breakfast in the morning after the day we had our miserable breakfast from the villa.
Ivy and Pieter took the bedroom upstairs while Baby and I took the bedroom below, it was very spacious. The villa is very nice, except for the fact that no matter how hard you try to kill all the mosquitoes in the bathroom or in the bedroom. When you leave and come back, there will always be the same amount of mosquitoes there or more!
How to move around Bali? Oh! rent a scooter/ flag a cab/ shuttle or use your legs if the place you want to visit is nearby. We rented 2 scooters for the 4 of us, it was scary at first as I have never sat on one before, but it was sort of fun after a while. One scooter cost us 200,000 IDR for the days that we were there.
Dishes I had when we were at Warisan Restaurant
There's this really nice restaurant called Warisan near us. We had lunch there, it looked expensive when we went there but then I found the food to be reasonably priced. I had the Linguine Carbonara, a Panna Cotta dessert and a Coke Float (which tasted like diet coke, I suppose the Coca Cola in Indonesia doesn't taste as sweet as ours.)
We did some water sports on Sunday morning, it was USD$83 per person. We did Para-Sailing, Jet Ski and Sea Walker. Those who know me will not believe that I did all those. But Baby and I are proud of myself as I had overcome some of my fears. If you asked me to do those again I would gladly do it as I have done it once already. Sadly those who do not believe won't as I do not have any photos, as all of us were doing it.. no one was carrying a camera, it was locked up in the lockers that were provided on shore. Definitely need a GoPro next time!
On the last night in Bali, we had a Brai, it was awesome. But I was full so I didn't really eat much, but had lots of Garlic Bread. To make the Garlic Butter was a hassle as they didn't sell crushed garlic, and so we had to make some ourselves. My poor tongue was on fire from the freshly ground garlic that we had made, but it was nice and it's suppose to keep the mosquitoes away. It's suppose to be true.. but it's a lie I tell you, I was still chased around the room.

I've really enjoyed Bali and its villa, beaches, food, drinks and water sports! Definitely will visit again (:
