Bali 2013.

in rainy november.. haha

Really did not expect myself to be in love with Bali’s beaches. I thought that after having seen the beaches in Thailand.. probably the rest of the beaches in the SEA region may just be very typical.

So, Kuta beach really open my eyes to that! It was a pretty good crowd there, all spread out and not too crowded to be at. Area was so big that even though majority of it makes up the international tourists, you won’t feel like your privacy has been invaded by “next door” neighbours.

We were there for only a short 3D2N getaway. And despite first 2 days of light continuous rain in the morning, wet grounds etc, it did not spoil our mood then because we went to a few places that were towards the central regions of Bali and the wet weather was chilly at times.

Anyway, here’s pictures I took in Bali:

#2 GPSed the location of the villa which we realised was very far away from the hustle bustle of the seminyak area. Lucky we hired a driver to bring us around the 3 days.

Bintan 2011☀☁☔

spent in a weekend in july..

#1 Heading towards the only chinese restaurant by the sea to grab some brunch..

#2 Lazy afternoon playing some water sports..

#3 Took a 10-15 mins boat ride from the main island to this beach with clear white sand and these man made huts..

#4 Yay! Yes.. This pix is not doing justice to the really white sand i see there..

#5 Had a really good feet massage facing the vast open sea.. Relax!

#6 Soaking in the morning waters on the last day! The low tide had just slowly subsided and the sea just mysteriously came back.. reminds me of the Red Sea when Moses commanded the sea to divide into 2 parts for God’s people to walk across to the other end.
