Jimbaran area in Bali is famous for its row of seafood restaurants. Visitors go there especially for dinner and jam-pack the beach since daylight. I’m a seafood lover, but I didn’t get the hype. I had a dinner once in Jimbaran, got there when it was already dark. And I also had lunch there once. Read More

It took us some time to figure out how we can participate in this weeks #FriFotos theme: curve. First thing that came to mind are extreme curved structure or aurora pics at the poles to really divine curves. Ah, a dream. But in the mean time, we didn’t look very far for bended lines. Read More

When it comes to Bali, we’re done with Kuta. At least for now. So on our last trip, we decided we needed a new spot, Nusa Dua. It’s not undiscovered, but we wanted to see a certain performance in the area and to break the ‘myth’ that only the rich can enjoy Nusa Dua. Our biggest problem was to find an affordable place to stay.

Stroll down Ubud roads, Bali, and you will see a lot of this. Rice paddies on your right and left, enjoy the view while walking, driving, or biking like we did. The crop is harvested 3 times a year and exported, making one of the locals’ source of income. Things are done manually, and look how neat they line up the paddies.

OK, we did the obvious! We went to Tanjung Benoa, Bali, and took the sky with a parasail. Although we had no interest to do any commercial beach activities in the past, we decided that parasailing might be worth the wild and we were in the area known for it. I mean, who can resist the offer of being suspended in the air? And on that note, let us say it’s amazing that anyone can resist to stay up there. We wanna do it again!

I like to play a lot with my imagination. And most of the time, it’s silly ones. I stumble on to this picture from my dive at Tulamben, Bali. I had a little smile imagining a thinking bubble around the fishes as the diver said ‘Ooo, fish for lunch would be great’ or I would imagine that the fish were teasing by swimming on top of him while he’s trying to find them. And by one photo made by my bud, Irma Safitri, I can make my self smile a bit more for the day.

This is a statue of Rangda, a depiction of child-eating evil spirit in the form of scary old woman. She is, believed by the most of the Hindus in Bali, the demon queen. However, the way my tour guide in Bali Classic Center explained it, the badness of Rangda is a part of the whole concept of balance. There’s really nothing bad in this world, because in anything bad there is always something good, and vise versa. Pretty deep, huh?

I want to see Petra. The grand stone palace carved in to the rocks. To me, it would be an awesome view and confusing thought to see it. Why would anyone one carve in to a rock rather than just build an infrastructure? Then, I want to Lilabela in Ethiopia. A church, again, carved but this time down in to the ground. This is even more confusing than Petra. Why would anyone build something that would not receive sunlight and erect above the ground showing it’s grandness. But before I do, I had travel to see our own Gunung Kawi located in Tampak Siring, Bali.
