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 ..

Private Kitchen, Damansara Uptown

Last night , I had dinner at this little place behind Maybank (nearer to the construction area) at Uptown for dinner. I had a great dinner. It’s relatively new, so you guys should go check it out and give some of your feedback to the restaurant! (;

_MG_1000

Herbal drink of the day – Barley with special herbs

_MG_1093

Love at First Sight Floral Tea (RM5)

_MG_1002

Long Spring Rolls (RM10)
Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside . It’s a little oily on my opinion , but that’s what makes it’s so yummy . Isn’t it ?

_MG_1028

Shredded Chicken with Private Kitchen Special ‘Ma La’ Sauce (RM12)
Initially, I thought the cucumbers were the main ingredient accompanied by the shredded chicken. Apparently not ! Silly me .. Anyway , the shreded chicken is a little spicy and sour at the same time accompanied with pickled cucumbers like the ones you find in acars .

_MG_1019

Long Boiled Soup of the Day (RM6)
This boiled soup is definitely a must have to accompany the other dishes that you would be ordering. Firstly, it cleanses your palate , secondly, it just refreshens you and ready to move on to main dishes. Heads up for you guys, every bowl would contain different amount of meat and arrowhead.

_MG_1036

Cantonese Chicken with Sand Ginger Sauce
I’ve tried many kinds of steamed chicken , this is relatively good. It’s different from the normal ‘pak cham kai’ you have at chicken rice stalls as it has more ginger to it. Honestly, I hate ginger. But for all you ginger-haters out there, go ahead and take a bite. Trust me, it’s so mild, you can’t even taste a tinsy bit of ginger.

_MG_1041

Private Kitchen Stir Fried Prime Beef Fillet with Strawberry Pepper Sauce (RM28)
I had a shock when the lady served the dish and said it’s stir fried with STRAWBERRY pepper sauce. I thought she was joking. Goodness gracious me ! This is the best fusion version of stir fried black pepper sauce beef ! Juicy meat accompanied with strong pepper taste with a strawberry after taste. The strawberry doesn’t overpower the meat nor the pepper sauce. It was just divinely perfect .

_MG_1060

Private Kitchen Sautéed Chinese Chives with Dried Shrimp and Shredded Dried Cuttlefish (RM18)
Not many would enjoy this dish . It’s the Chinese Chives I tell you .. Also known as garlic chives, it’s quite an aquired taste especially to those who rarely eat this veggie.

_MG_1055

Pan Fried Pork Chop Lemongrass (RM25)
This is another fabulous dish . First bite’s the best, as you can instantly taste the lemongrass with a hint of citrus. I treat this like a snack, something you can just munch on as you’re in a conversation with your company.

_MG_1079

Deep Fried Pork Ribs with Special Salad Sauce (RM32)
Juicy tender pork ribs with a bold hint of mustard mayonnaise . I’m not too sure what is in the salad sauce, but it taste so delicious . End of discussion, you’re ordering this!

_MG_1073

Portugese-Style Fried Rice with Braised Pork Belly & Seafood (RM16)
Nothing big to shout about. It’s fried rice but ala portugese !

_MG_0997

A warm cosy atmosphere, perfect place to bring your parents for a Hong Kong cuisine dinner!

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? (:

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.

P1070297

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.
