I've been there!


This post should be worldless but I can't stand myself from writing! hehehehe

When I visited my best online buddy Ami in Bali last year, she took me to Bedugul and showed me the exact place we see in our money! We had fun take pictures as similar can be as the money... can you find me there? We even found the real boat near by the temple, just perfect! Ha ha ha ha do you think this money will be interesting enough for sale ? *wink wink*

Bali pictures for my dear Karen.

Hi friends, I am sorry I can't visit your blog these days as my internet quota has been over limit! *blush* This is the 3rd times I exceed my limit quota... and thank God my dear hubby is really understanding, he does not grumble nor complaint about this at all. He offered an unlimited internet service instead. *love you dear* So until the service is changed, I will have to control my internet usage tightly.

Anyway, I want to thank Uncle BokJae for helping me spreading the story about Yah and Wan to make it possible to get more people to pray for them. Thank you for Shinade, Karen and Janice for your prayer as well.

Karen asked to see Bali photo in my Shoutbox as I gave the link to Janice in her post about scuba diving. Here's the link to my prior posts about Bali pictures:
Bali pictures, Leila and Balinese girl - interesting pictures, and a review about Made's Warong.

I also posted a series of Bali stories at Food and City, especially about my cuisine tour at Bali. You have to visit it especially if you have a plan to go to Bali!
- Bali Travel Day One - Flying with a small child
- The Explorations Begin from Kuta Bali
- Sukawati Morning Art Market… a Heaven for Shoppers!
- Ubud Cuisine Tour - a Delightful Experience
- Enjoy the end of the second day

This series will be continued so make sure you subscribe the feed if you find it interesting.

Hope these postings can be entertaining and useful for you...

Wardani's Warong Review

Wardani's Warong

Cuisine: Asian
Location:Jl. Yudistira 2, ph. +62(361) 224398

This place is well known for their Balinese food. Just mention Wardani’s Warong has made me hungry… :-D Last time I went to Bali with my family, we bought lunch boxes from Wardani’s Warong and have a picnic at Botanical Garden, Bedugul. Balinese Mix Rice in a box is 20.000 rupiah, or 2.2 USD, including a rice, beans sauté, twisted satai, tempe and a yummy spicy ‘dendeng’. Twisted satai is pieces of spicy roast meat twisted on a lemon grass. Tempe is food made by fermented soybean and specially cooked with oil, onions and spices. Dendeng is meat cut into slices and dried, after that it is cooked with chilly and spices.

If you go to Bali, you should try Wardani’s Warong. I even brought 2 ounces of dendeng home. It can last a few months in freezer. 2 ounces was spent in a week, I ate with it everyday in Bandung

Made's Warung at Seminyak - Bali

It is a very famous restaurant in Bali. In the past, Made's Warung was the only restaurant at Kuta – Bali. So, all tourists went there for food. That’s why Made's warung is very well known. I think people who come back for vacation to Bali will visit Warung Made for the sake of old days memories…. :-D Now, Made's warung can be found at two locations. The first one is at Kuta and the new place is at Seminyak. We prefer Seminyak as there is more space for parking here. Apparently both of them have the similar interior. Look at the picture, isn’t it awesome? Recommended food and drink : Balinese Mix Rice (Nasi campur Bali) and Ice lemon tea.

Yeah! I went to Bali and have a great time!

Well... I decided to post my story about Bali trip in food and city blog, will update it one day at a time... and here, I will post some reviews about what I found in Bali...

We stay at Febri's Hotel

Hotel - Spa - cafe
Jl. Kartika Plaza, Tuban
Tel : 754 575, Fax : 754 560

This is our favourite hotel at Kuta. The family room is 52 meter square and has a large convenience bathroom. It's very clean, no mosquito at all... *grin*

We were 4 adults and 2 children, and it was still convenient to stay in one family room... the rate is also reasonable and it located in Jl.Kartika Plaza, Kuta, walking distance to Discovery Mall and Waterboom, and also ATM and Kuta Square. You can click a map location here.

We got breakfast from the hotel, for 2 adults and 2 children... so we bought Nasi Jenggo for my mom and her friend. Nasi Jenggo or Jenggo Rice was a cheap but delicious rice with a slight of noodle, veggie and chilly sauce. Jenggo was taken from chinese language means 1500 because the price was only 1500 rupiah (just a few cent dollar!). In old days, Jenggo rice was sold at night near Badung Traditional Market, jl. Gajah Mada, Denpasar Bali. The costumers of Jenggo Rice were people who work at Badung Traditional Market because the market wares arrived at night from Java. Now Jenggo Rice is wellknown and could be found almost everywhere, near hotels and especially at the beach.

Leila and balinese girl

The first place we visit at Bali is Warung Made, and I met this beautiful Leila there. I ask her permission to take her pictures... here she is...

Her mom is Sweden and her dad is Kashmir, India. No wonder she is gorgeous.

When we had a lunch, there is a little girl who was busy picking up camboja flowers. After she collected enough, she put the flowers in the table and she acted like this! Really cute!

She was happy when people took her pictures... :-)

My Vacation is coming!

Cool.... exciting.... can not wait! We will be on vacation just in 2 days to go! Here's what I have prepared..a check list! In fact, I am doing my luggage.. :-) I found some interesting site about travelling tips. All of us, 2 adults and 2 children will bring 2 normal size suitcases and 1 carry-on luggage. One bag will not be enough *big grin* my mom even told me to bring 3 suitcases! But I will try to do my best to bring only 2. But I learn some useful tips of packaging, what to pack and how to do it. I finally did the checklist things, with the handy help of some sites, Lara's list and a few adjustment.

One more thing, may be you want to travel without bag? This man is Anders Ansar, he thinks Traveling super light, without a bag, is a bold experiment. And may be you wanna try more extreme way like Eric? I am amazed and laugh when I see his pictures!
