Bali #Day 2

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Travel

MORNING !! Well, it’s 9am, time to go explore Bali ! ^^

I love small details of our room number . Bali is known for their wood crafting too. Ain’t it lovely?

Managed to snap this beauty before heading out to watch the Barong dance.

We arrived at about 9.30am .. A lot of people are buying tickets to the dance too !

It was quite a long wait for the show to start, we waited for a few more audience to come in .

That’s Barong . Isn’t it just adorable ? Haha .

One of the servants dancing . This is when the devil starts to possess her . She gets all confused and angry all of the sudden.

Although tourists understood no shit of what they said , we all understood the dance . (Besides, they gave us leaflets on the synopsis of the dance) I know a few words they said, but the music overpowered their voices, I couldn’t really make out the sentences.

After the dance, we went to look at the Kuta Palace (If I’m not wrong)

And then we went to the market nearby to shop !

I love their Police Post . Absolutely striking .

For lunch, we went to Naughty Nuri’s Warung for some pork ribs !

JUST LOOK AT THAT *DROOLS*

I wanted to order their Chili Con Carne too .. Apparently that’s one of the popular dishes  But it finished already ): Boohoo .

Mum’s definitely enjoying it .

We also ordered their fried rice . Heavenly. Never tasted such flavourful fried rice in a long long time . And it’s so simple. Rice, veggie and sliced chicken . :O

I bought a beautiful Karimba/Kalimba/Mbira . The soundbox is made of coconut with a piece on wood on top . The little girl who sold it to me said it’s a Karimba . But I’m google-ing it as I’m writing this .. It originated from Africa ? Errr .. Doesn’t matter, I bought it for 20,000 rupiah. Pft .

 

Her cute-ness and manja-ness can beat any salesman .

OH AND I FOUND ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL TREASURE . It moved so fast, I could only snap 1 photo of it .. Not very clear but STILL …

Next door was this shop which sells only Bob Marley merchandises. Anything Jamaican , you can find it here . Stickers, scarves, clothes, badges .. Posters … ._. And this isn’t the only one . So, Bob Marley fans, you know where to visit to get these items .

If I have someone to play congkak with everyday, I will get that . Oh god, it’s so beautiful.

Hey, here’s a random photo of a guy roasting Luwak Coffee.

This fake Crocs slippers have been with me for 5 years . Been to Thailand and New Zealand with me too . Best slippers to travel with .

Temple visiting after lunch . First stop – Tirta Empul !

This is the only temple that lends us a really nice sarong . And this cloth belt that comes with it . We donated a few bucks to them .

Bathe in this water and you shall be purified !!!! And clean .

Dinner time wasn’t very interesting .. We went to Dirty Duck Diner (Bebek Bengil) . Not very satisfying ..

Duck n’ Such, Hartamas Shopping Centre

Lovely lady owners of the restaurant . They look like sisters, don’t they ? (;

Ducks, ducks, and more ducks ! So many duck figurines and photographs !

Duck Satay (RM20)
It’s so rare to see DUCK satay . I’ve had rabbit, chicken, beef and lamb satays .. But duck? How interesting. This one, it’s just so refreshing , not the typical satay with strong and heavy flavours. And the peanut sauce . Oh gosh, I could just swim in it. With or without the sauce, the satay taste equally gorgeous.

Duck Chilli Con Carne (RM18)
Con Carne … Duck mode . But honestly, they could’ve added beef and I wouldn’t be able to taste the difference . Perfect for those who are unable to eat beef.

Mexican Quesadilla (RM15)
This duck quesadilla is yummy . A very light appetizer. That’s if .. You’re sharing among 4 friends.

Oriental Herbal Duck Delight (RM16)
Taste like a duck-kut-teh! Yummy . A different flavour compared to the chick-kut-tehs. (: Try it out !

Tagliatelle ala Carbonara (RM35)
Just look at those slices of smoked duck . Can you already taste the juicy tender duck meat? The carbonara taste great, but a little on the thick side.. So it would be hard for 1 person to finish the whole thing (It’s a big portion) I think it’s just this particular one we had, I’m pretty sure they’ve improved on it . (:

Last Sunday, we three girls went to  for lunch. Oh my, every shop lot is a restaurant (Mostly) and the 2nd and 3rd floor are boutiques. I’m really in a rush and all.. I don’t even have the prices. ): Anyway, I’d just say little things about each dish and all. Yeah? (:

Roast Duck, Roast Pork and Char Siew.
I’ve tried better roast ducks, but the char siew is awesome! 2nd only char siew I’d eat. It’s not dry and hard that tastes like plastic.

”Hong Kong” Plain Noodle
The wantan mee is yummy, smooth and springy. You can hear the sounds when you chew on them. Simple dish with oyster sauce, but yum..

Soft Shell Crab
My brother loves it.. I didn’t try, am afraid I feel uncomfy again.

Stuffed with glutinous rice and char sew.

Salted Fish and Chicken Fried Rice
Although, it’s only fried rice, I love it! I love the white fried rice.. They’re always so lovely and just salty enough.
