Bali Day 2: Walking Along Seminyak Area, Bali

Image
Hello everyone. In this entry, I still will share about my second day activities in Bali. If you read my previous posting, we only can check in our villa after 2 pm. So, we had about 4 hours to kill and we decided to go for a walk around Seminyak area. Basically, in this article I will share about things in seminyak area.


Jalan = Road

Jalan Arjuna

Okay! Arjuna road also known as Double 6 among the local. if you catch a cab, you can easily say going to Double 6 and everyone know the place. Basically, Jalan Arjuna is started from the four junction of Jalan Keraton-Jalan Legian-Jalan Nakula and the end point is Seminyak beach. Walking to the beach via Jalan Arjuna maybe will take about 10 to 15 minutes and along the way, you will see many shops selling souvenirs, beach wears, tattoo services, massage services, handicraf and some restaurants. This street mostly less happening at night time.



Jalan Keraton

From Jalan Arjuna, we go further north to Jalan Keraton. In here, you will able to see alo…

Bali Day 2: Relaxing at Pondok Sara Villa, Seminyak, Bali

Image
If previously you read my my first day in Bali, this is the continuous story about the next place that we stayed after checking out from Airport Kuta Hotel & Residence. We arrived to Pondok Sara Villa a bit early around 10.00am and according to the hotel, check in time will be at 2.00pm. So, we just register ourselves first and place our bag at the counter before going to sightseeing at Legian Street. Actually we were walking for quiet long, approximately about 4 hours and we came back to hotel by taxi cause we were extremely exhausted.


Sharp at 2.00pm, we arrived to the villa and greeted by Sri, the front office staff and she brought us to our villa unit. We are really excited to see our nest as its really beautiful on the web and hopefully we won't get disappointed with the real one. But hell yeah, our Villa (numbered 18) was truly amazing.



Once we stepped into the door, we can see the clear water (greeny-blue-ish) private pool which was really awesome. This is really good to …

Bali Day 1: Kuala Lumpur - Midnight Arrival - Bali

Image
Hi everyone, I am recently not really active in blogging. My PC at home is broken and the laptop is freaking slow. Some of you maybe previously read about my blog posting about the plan to go to Bali and yes, we just came back on last Monday. 

So, going to Bali was actually a sudden plan. Previously, we planned to go to Singapore to celebrate his birthday. But then, with maximum budget MYR2000 ($600), we don't think will able to have a good 5 days stay in one of the most expensive city in the world. 
Our departure date was on 13th March 2014 and we bouth the ticket one week earlier with price MYR788 ($240) for 2 person. Still a good deal tho because my other pals went to Bali week before at price MYR1100 ($340). 
The flight schedule was at 8.25pm and expected to arrive to Ngurah Rai International Airport at 11.25pm. But, since it is very hazy and too hot at home (after closing all doors and windows), we decided to go to airport much earlier with hoping to fully utilize the air condit…

Noodle Dinner at 西刀鱼丸粉 Restaurant Ah Wing, Puchong Jaya

Image
I think many of our fellow friends know that we normally prefer to have dinner at home. But once in awhile, it is good to see what are other good stuffs to enjoy our there. So, on last weekend, I wandered nearby IOI Boulevard and discover this (I think it is a new restaurant) called Restauran Ah Wing. I can't recall the exact location of this restaurant, but u can make a big round at IOI Boulevard and you probably will see this restaurant on the right side of this commercial complex. 


The unique factor about this Chinese restaurant is the kitchen is at the front side of the restaurant and customer can see how they prepare meals for customers. When we check on the menu, there are two type of food style here is which a clear soup noodle or curry noodle.


At first, we would want to have the curry noodle, but too bad, they run out of stock already. Look at our watch, its 8.00pm and seems like the curry noodle here is a hot selling item. So, I ordered a serving of Loh Su Fun (Dry) and my …

Our Budget Calculation & Trip Planning to Bali, Indonesia

Image
Me and my travel mate, Christopher will be in Bali for 5 days from 13th March 2014 until 17th March 2014 for his birthday escape. Actually this is a sudden plan as we previously just want to have a quick trip to Singapore instead. So, this posting is about how we prepare for our trip to Bali, Indonesia?

Our Flight - AirAsia (AA)

We were hunting for the cheapest fare from Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar, Bali and my airlines preference should be Malaysia Airlines (MH). But since the departure time for MH is crazy (midnight) and we will arrive too early in the morning to Bali (we have no idea about this place tho. So we decided to book an evening flight from Kuala Lumpur on 13th March 2014 at 8.25pm and arrive to Bali at 11.25pm. As for our return ticket, we will depart from Bali on 17th March 2014 at 6.00am and arrive to Kuala Lumpur at 9.00am. 

Total flight fare for 2 person: MYR788.00 and we need to pay another IDR300,000 (MYR100.00) for departure tax for 2 person when leaving Ngurah Rai Inter…
