Revolver Espresso came across our little chit chat during our lunch at The Cafe at The Mulia, Bali. Diana mentioned it as the most popular coffee joint in Bali at the moment.
Since I don’t feel like I want to miss this famous coffee during my trip, Gaby and I went there for a brunch on Monday morning. Besides, the breakfast my hotel served was really awful. Even their coffee doesn’t taste like what coffee should be. So I decided to skip my breakfast at the hotel and went for a decent brunch instead.
You’ll never go hungry in Bali, that much is certain! There are a lot of foods offered from traditional Balinese foods just anywhere down the streets to an international fine dining at a hotel. This island of gods does has a huge range of choices from cafes, restaurant, street foods, bakeries, to local places to eat. That’s one of the reason I keep coming back to Bali. I just can’t refuse the foods and the hospitality it offers.
I know summer is coming to an end, real quick. People are starting to wear sweater and boots here. And although the sun still shines so bright in the morning, the rain always seems to pour at noon.
And… before these precious memories of mine lost forgotten, I want to share a summary, I guess, of my favorite place, my favorite foods, and the activities I used to have last summer. This is just another informal mini travel guide about Bali which you can easily find in the internet. But mine is a lil bit personal. You know, I’m not a travel-expert. Not even closed to be one. I don’t get to explore every inches of Bali. That’s obvious. I just happened to live there, enjoying the island the way I like.
This question always happens to cross my mind first thing in the morning.
You know, morning has always been my favorite time of the day. It’s the time, the only time, when I can sit all alone, sipping my coffee while listening to the bird chirping, and thinking about everything – about life and future, mostly.
Morning is the time when I know there’s still another day. There’s still another chance. It gives me the time to think. It gives me hope. That’s why I love morning.
It was 17 August 2013, the Independence day of Indonesia, my beloved country. And it was also our last day staying in Bali since our summer holiday is ending really soon. I found this Jazz Market By The Sea thing from Twitter and decided to spend our day there.
I’m a big fans of pork ribs!!! The grilled one, to be exact.
Since we moved out to Bali last June, we’ve been hunting pork ribs several times, from Naughty Nuris in Kerobokan, Naughty Nuris in Ubud, Cafe Wayan in Ubud, until Bale Bali in Seminyak – the one I dislike the most.
There’s always a place where you found yourself keep coming back to. Mine was Bread Basket. A small bakery in Sanur I found during my first week in Bali. The only reason I hooked into Bread Basket a lot was that it serves great breakfast! And it’s quite near from where I live. So.. that makes us best friend.
When it comes to chilies and peppers, some people like it a lot, like they could just swallow all those spicy ingredients, while some people like it a little and some avoid it. I was raised in a small town in Sumatra island where spicy foods are widely spread. My tongue is somehow used to taste any kind of spicy ingredients.
It’s funny that since I moved out to Bali in June 2013, I haven’t found any spicy foods that really fits my taste. I mean, there are chillies but it doesn’t ‘kick’ me. You know?
