Naughty Nuri’s, Bali

“Don’t be naughty but nasty. Only poo-poo and pee-pee are allowed here” – a caution sign in Naughty Nuri’s toilet. Ha!


Well, if you’re a fan of Naughty Nuri’s, you’ve probably already known that this legendary expat hang-out restaurant serves a very good ribs – pork ribs to be exact. Probably the best I’ve ever tasted.Lanjutkan membaca “Naughty Nuri’s, Bali”

Deus Ex Machina

Last Saturday, Fred found this free postcard I gave him about 2 weeks ago. Turns out, it’s not a postcard even if it looks exactly like one. It’s just a sponsored card which has a route map to Deus Ex Machina in Bali. Since Fred thought it must be one of the coolest place (read: motorcycle workshop) we can found in Bali, we decided to take a step there.Lanjutkan membaca “Deus Ex Machina”

Ubud in One Day – My Way

If you’ve heard people talking about Ubud, it must be something about the spa, the yoga, the meditation, the art, the rice paddle, I don’t know… And people who are looking for inner peace, let’s say, will probably stay in Ubud for like 3 days or a week, just to get the feel of the place and relax a little bit and forget about all the works & problems they’ve been through.Lanjutkan membaca “Ubud in One Day – My Way”

Arena Pub & Restaurant, Sanur, Bali

Whether it’s a special occasion or just a Saturday night, for many people including me, dining out is one of life’s great pleasures. So, when it comes to weekend, I always look for somewhere new for dining out. Well, not always. And the place is not always going to be a new one.

Snorkeling at Blue Lagoon Beach, Bali

Traveling is all about adventure, wanderlust, and trying new things. I can’t believe I never snorkeled before. Well, I did scuba-dived once. But that was 4 years ago if I recalled. And I was accompanied with an instructor who always held my hand (or my oxygen tube) here and there under the water. It’s like you can’t even swim freely, you know. So, I’m not really into diving anyway. It’s troublesome, I can say. You’ve got to carry a huge oxygen tube with you. You’ve got to wear the suit, the fin, and well I don’t know… a diving mask?

So…. this summer I got a chance to try a new sport I never did before. Yes, snorkeling! Lanjutkan membaca “Snorkeling at Blue Lagoon Beach, Bali”

In Search of a Good Breakfast – Luhtu’s Coffee Shop, Bali

If you know me well, you’ve probably known that breakfast time is the most important yet exciting time of the day for me. I always ate breakfast every day before I go to work, or to college. Even if I don’t have enough time, I’ll grab some biscuits and bring a cup of hot chocolate with me. It somehow has a control over my mood for all day long.

Since now we’re currently living in Bali, we usually go out for breakfast every weekend. The last time we had outside was in Bread Basket. (Turns out that’s our favorite breakfast/brunch venue). But last Saturday, we decided to try another place. It was Luhtu’s Coffee Shop we were looking for. See? There’s sooo many good reviews about this place in TripAdvisor.Lanjutkan membaca “In Search of a Good Breakfast – Luhtu’s Coffee Shop, Bali”

Bali – 1st Week

As I have mentioned earlier in my previous post, Fred & I are currently living in Bali for a pretty long time. The fact is, we’re gonna spend 2 months here doing our summer internship. Well, I know it sounds like we’re going to be at the office from 8 to 5 during our weekdays and there’s nothing fun about it. But still we can spend our weekends exploring Bali, right?

So, here are some highlights of what we did last week. We spent our first week mostly in Sanur and Kuta. And we’re planning to explore Ubud next week.Lanjutkan membaca “Bali – 1st Week”

Bali, Here We Are!


As you can guess from my post title, I’m currently living in Bali for the next 2 months.

Fred & I traveled by car from Jambi City, our hometown in Sumatra island, to Bali. Believe me, it was the most exciting yet tiring road trip I’ve ever experienced. And also the longest one! (Around 1500 miles). We crossed the sea twice by riding the ferry boat & we found some interesting cities along our way. I’ll write about it later. I promise!Lanjutkan membaca “Bali, Here We Are!”
