Day 1 - Part 1

Like merry go round~

sunny 28 °C

7am, it's already super bright and hot! I can feel the heat when Alvin opened the door to the balcony.

This man is here selling breakfast every morning and stop for at least 20 minutes.


I've read that Balinese don't have very heavy breakfast. They will always feed God/spirit first. So in the morning they'll have small meal like sweet sticky rice with prawn or fish cracker.

We went to Legian beach after breakfast. Tourists do what tourists do - parked themselves under the hot sun or playing water sport. Here, they surf.


We were stopped by a man claiming that he is working for a hotel in Nusa Dua. He gave us some postcard thingy. Without much thought, we took one each. It's some kind of scratch and win contest! It appears Alvin just won US12k or 2 nights stay in that hotel blah blah blah...
He told us we must go to Nusa Dua to claim the prize. Terms & conditions applies, of course. We have to listen to 60 minute video presentation. *Roll eyes*

We need to get to the MAS office so we felt really annoyed and tried to get away as soon as we could.

So he gave us something like an invitation, urging us that we must go or he'll lose his commission (around RP50,000), which unfortunately we meant to miss the 60 minutes video presentation.

We hired a cab and went to the airport. After ding dong around for awhile, we found the office... Sigh… we didn't get our ticket since the computer did all the job that the human being who invented the system refuse to do what should be done. We have to wait for them to get the message across to Malaysian office or we'll have loads of problem checking out later.

The cab driver waited for us and took us around. We took some nice photos of statues along the way.

Here’s the impressive Patung Satria Gatotkaca near airport, launched in 1993.


It didn't have anything to tell the history or story about this monument. Problem travelling in Bali - no brochure or big huge board that tell you what is this all about.

As usual, I care-less about taking proper photo in front of monument like this.


On the way to Nusa Dua, we saw this family of 3 on a bike.


Eye catching... really.
