Recap:- Bali Streets

Here are the photos taken in Bali streets in the second day of our trip.

We noticed the people in Bali pray all the time..i mean ..almost all the time! In the morning, afternoon and even in the middle of midnight.

And most of the prayers are males. We noticed that their full time is to pray and their wives go out and work and get some money. We went to few restaurants and other shops..all run by the women!

Bali Kapcai :D

You can find this idol in front of every Hindhu house in Bali.


Some of the status in Bali, are really marvelous...the Bali people are talented in carving and painting.

Kek Lok Si Temple

Last January, I went to Kek Lok Si temple which is well known as 'Pagoda' in Penang. I went with my relative who came down from Kelang to Penang for this year's thaipusam. Here are the photos & videos

The bargaining process starts. Over here, you can get all sort of brands from all over the world. From Nike to Versace...since it's being made locally, it's veryyy 'cheap' LOL

You must take this incline lift to go to the top of the temple. This is the only incline lift in Malaysia. It cost RM4 for two ways.

Praying hard

The view from the top of the temple. By the way, you can also go to this temple at night , which you can have way better experience . Check here .

After the trip we went to Nasi Kandar kayu for a very early dinner.

Recap :- Jimbaran, Bali

Last year October,me and wife went to Bali for our postponed honeymoon.We took the the flight at 3pm and we reached in Bali at 7pm. We were so hungry, so after we checked in our hotel, we went to Jimbaran to have some seafood.

By the time when we reach Jimbaran, there were only few restaurants open . We randomly selected one shop to eat.

We only ate these two items only. You see the red 'sauce' thingy there? You will find this sauce every part of Bali in almost every food. Btw, the main highlight is...the cost us RM 145!!

Red Tomato Garden Cafe

It was our last day in Langkawi and I kind of 'forced' my friends to have breakfast at Red Tomato Garden Cafe , hehe. A couple of my friends and other bloggers suggested this place to try for breakfast.

The place was crowded and we waited around 40 minutes for our food to arrive...just look at my friends' face shows everything.. ehehehe..

Forgot the name of the dish, but it's stated as one of the chef recommended item. It was not that good though :P. We paid RM 80 for 4 of us, it was expensive and the taste was a bit flat for all food we tried. Maybe we tried wrong dishes ? Not sure.

This post is ending my Langkawi trip I went on December 2010. Had a good time with my friend and looking forward to go again this year :D

One night in Langkawi

We were hungry...really hungry after our hangout in the beach in the afternoon. So we decided go out to get some food.

We passed by few shops including this Ikan Bakar ( grilled fish ). It was tempting though ..

then, I found this...the Kebab..

This one, more tempting than the grilled fish, I bought this...Lamb Kebab..

My frenz were ordering donuts

We went back to our hotel room to eat our dinner and we played some card games until we get bored

In Langkawi, mineral water cost more than alcohol, we decided to go out and get some drink..we stopped this van taxi to take us to any nice clubs around..but the taxi driver who looks like a very religious person told us that he will take us to anywhere in Langkawi except for clubs or pubs. huh? wonder he was driving around in Pantai Cenang with empty van ..hehe..we let go this dude and we managed to get another taxi driver

The taxi driver suggested us two clubs...Chime and Sunba. We asked him to bring it to the Chime first and then Sunba.

This bar is located within Berjaya Langkawi Beach & Spa Resort. It was 30 minutes drive from Pantai Cenang.

Not that crowded..but when the time flies,,more and more people started to come in

Outside of the bar , there is a big cushion where number of people can sit at one time.

We were in Chime for 2 hours and after that we went to Sunba. It is located in Pantai Cenang.

Compare with Chime,,this bar had more people, better music and lively environment. I saw quite number of beach boys there drinking heavily and they involved in a fight too..ish..once the fight started...we left the bar.
